(Before LEFROY, B. and MOORE, J.)

THE QUEEN v. John MITCHEL. (a)
Crown and Government Securities Act-IndictmentDistinct felonies

Demurrer Postponement of trial Challenge of the array Jury

list-Practice-Pleading-Jury-Absence of a witnessEvidence. A prisoner indicted for felony is not entitled to a copy of the indictment

found against him, or to a copy of the jury panel, or to copies of the

panels returned at former sessions of the court. The prisoner was indicted in one set of counts for feloniously compassing,

&c., to deprive and depose our Lady the Queen from the style, honour, and royal name of the Imperial Crown of the United Kingdom and, on certain days in the indictment named, feloniously expressing said compassings by feloniously publishing certain printings in a certain public newspaper, of wbich he was then and there the proprietor. And, in another set of counts, with feloniously compassing to levy war against the Queen, in order, by force and constraint, to compel Her Majesty to change her measures and counsels, and with feloniously expressing such last-mentioned compassings by feloniously publishing the same printings, and on the same days and in the same public newspaper as in the first set of counts mentioned. Held, that the two felonies, though distinct, were properly joined in the

indictment. And semble, that the question in such cases is not whether the felonies

charged are distinctbut whether they are repugnant or so dissimilar in their nature and circumstances as, if joined, to be likely to embarrass

the prisoner in his defence. A prisoner indicted for a felony not capital is not entitled to demur and plead over at the same time.
