Much to the disgust of that distinguished body the Government considered it advisable to select one of the leaders of the circuit well-known in Westminster Hall, Mr. EdLin, Q.C., who accordingly has been appointed. We are glad to see that Mr. Bruce is above municipal dictation, doubtless deeming the interests of the borough superior to the claims of local intiuence.

The office of Clerk of the Peace for the county of Suffolk has been conferred by the Earl of STRADBROKE, lord lieutenant, on JAMES CHERRY, Esq., Barrister-at-Law, of the Norfolk circuit. Mr. CHERRY was called to the Bar at the Middle Temple in November 1855, and about twelve years ago he was appointed Poor-law auditor of the East Suffolk district. In 1868 he was nominated by Lord Chief Justice COCKBURN to a revising-barristership on the Norfolk circuit, and he has occasionally acted as recorder of Bury St. Edmunds when Mr. Serjeant Tozer was too ill to attend. Nr. CHERRY is a justice of the peace for the borough of Yarmouth, where he formerly resided.

COMUNICATIONS which cannot emanate from lawyers reach us with reference to the TICH BORSE case, and the last received contains the inquiry, “Has the plaintiff to prove himself to be ROGER TICHIBORNE, or have the defendants to prore him to be another person? In other words, does the onus probandi lie with the plaintiff or the defendants ?”. This would be hardly worth a reply did it not involve some collateral questions. The defendants having raised the ORTON case, their failure to support it will, of course, weigh with the jury in considering whether the plaintiff has established his identity as ROGER TICHBORNE. But if the defendants fail to prove that he is Ortos he has still to satisfy the jury that he is ROGER TICHBORNE. The importance of the ORTON issue is therefore plain, as a failure in that direction strengthens the presumption the other way.

In the presence of such crimes as the foul murder which has robbed England and India of an eminent public servant the law stands perplexed. The perpetrator of the base assassination is sentenced to be hanged—a wretched convict under sentence of penal servitude for life is to have his miserable career abbreviated by the machinery of the law. Of what example can this be? It is indeed a pitiable expiation of so huge a felony. The crime would have been less terrible had it been committed by one of the numerous family which our HOME SECRETARY and his medical coadjutors call mad. But the ruffian is sane, and with astute cunning and fixed pre-determination made sure of his victim. Fanaticism defies the law. Punishment to the fanatic is martyrdom, and the terror inspired in the criminal classes is outweighed by the splendour of the felon's notoriety. In such cases the sword of justice descends to very little purpose.

It seems to have been suggested by the LORD CHANCELLOR, in view of the arrears in the court of Vice-Chancellor Bacon, that the duties of Chief Judge in Bankruptcy should be discharged by a common law Judge on the courts receiving their full complement of Judges. Such a proposition it is satisfactory to learn has been at once objected to. The demands of circuits, the Central Criminal Court, Chambers, Nisi Prius sittings, in addition to Term duties, are too numerous and pressing to allow of any common law Judge taking upon himself the office of Chief Judge in Bankruptcy. It is simply vain to expect to have the Bankruptcy Law properly administered without expense, and a thousand or two pounds amually is a matter of no moment considering the enormous value of estates which come within the jurisdiction. We shall hope to learn soon that a Judge has been appointed to the Bankruptcy Court who will have nothing else to do, and will be able to relieve the registrars of their unpleasant work under delegated powers.

The Law and

and the Lawyers.

The senior Judge of the Liverpool County Court, Mr. J. K. BLAIR, has resigned his office on account of ill health. For some time past his duties have been performed by his deputy, Mr. Gilmour, whose tenure of office will expire on the 28th inst., the day from which Mr. Blair's resignation dates.

An important omission in the Parliamentary and Municipal Elections Bill has been pointed out by Mr. LE MARCHANT, namely, the provisions respecting a scrutiny.“ In the Bill now before the House,” he says, no suggestions are made as to what course can be adopted at the trial of a petition---whether or not a scrutiny is to be entirely abolished, thereby raising a difficulty if notice of disqualification of a candidate be served on voters before polling, and rendering a second election in all cases necessary where a sitting member is disqualitied; while an element of confusion is introduced by clause 7, which enacts that every person .... shall be qualified to vote unless he is disqualified for voting by some statute for the time being in force, or by the common law of Parliament, which, read with c. 2, sub-sect. 3, together with schedule 1, clause 38, points to a subsequent review of ballot papers by the Judge on the ground of disqualification, yet there is no power of tracing for whom the vote was given.” We cannot here enter into the matter critically, but we certainly do hope that any difficulties suggested will be considered before, and not after the Bill has become an Act.

The horough of Bridgwater is determined to distinguish itself. The recordership recently became vacant by the death of Mr. Ernest REED; whereupon the Town Council took action to procure the appointment of one of the juniors of the Western Circuit.
