Our New York correspondent writes :-“Associate Justice
“ STEPHEN J. FIELD, of the United States Supreme Court, continues to sit with the other justices, although the feeble condition of his health is shown by the fact that his name has not recently appeared in the published reports as delivering opinions of the court. Justice FIELD is now in his eighty-first year, and he finds it difficult to walk even the short distance required on his daily visit to the Supreme Court-room. If he lives and holds his office for a few weeks longer, his term of service will have been longer than that of any of the other judges, except Chief Justice MarsHALL, in the history of the Courts. Justice FIELD was appointed to his present office on the 10th March 1863, and will complete his thirty-fourth year of service next March. Justice JOSEPH STORY served somewhat less than thirty-four years, having been appointed on the 18th Nov. 1811, and having died on the 10th Sept. 1845. Chief Justice MARSHALL was appointed to office on the 31st Jan. 1801, and died on the 6th July 1835. His term of service was therefore nearly thirty-four years and six months. Associate Justice FIELD must hold office until after the middle of August in order to equal the record of Chief Justice MARSHALL. It is said to be an ambition of Justice Field to occupy the office which be holds longer than any other person has done, and he will probably not resign his position until he has attained his ambition, although he might at any time retire on a full pension.”

The same writer says : “ The justices of the Appellate Division of the New York Supreme Court for the New York City Department were guests of honour at a dinner at the Colonial Club on the 23rd Dec. Presiding Justice VAN BRUNT, of that court, gave an interesting description of the methods adopted in carrying out the work of the court, which has been in existence for just one year. It has decided 940 appeals within the year. There are seven judges in the court, and five sit to hear each case.
A copy of each opinion prepared by one of the justices is submitted to each of his associates before it is made public. An opportunity is thus given for revision and correction, and each published opinion becomes the deliberate expression of the concurring judges. In many classes of cases the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court is the final tribunal of review, and its work has been so satisfactory that there is no prospect, of a return to the old system under which appeals were usually carried to the Court of Appeals."
LORD RUSSELL OF KILLOWEN presided on Wednesday evening last week, in the Ancient Concert Rooms, Dublin, at the inaugural banquet of the Castleknock Union of former pupils of that institution. In reply to the toast of his health, the LORD CHIEF JUSTICE made the proud boast that he was the first Irishman who had ever held the office of Lord Chief Justice of England, and the first Roman Catholic who had occupied that position since the Reformation.
AFTER sentencing the leading defendant in Reg. v. Scott, Mr. Justice Hawkins, on application by her counsel, directed
that she should be considered “at present” as a first-class misdemeanant, but added that he did not wish to interfere with the discretion of the HOME SECRETARY in the matter. The 67th section of the Prison Act 1865 is very specific in leaving the question entirely to the judge who tries any particular case. It enacts that “prisoners convicted of misdemeanour and not sentenced to hard labour shall be divided into at least two divisions, one of which shall be called “the first division,'” and that whenever any person convicted of misdemeanour is sentenced to imprisonment without hard labour, it shall be lawful for the court or judge before whom such person has been tried to order, if such court or judge think fit, that such person shall be treated as a misdemeanant of the first division,” adding that “ a misdemeanant of the first division shall not be deemed to be a criminal prisoner” within the meaning of the Prison Act. It will be remembered that in Dr. Jameson's case, after a refusal by the LORD CHIEF JUSTICE to order that the prisoner should be treated as a first-class misdemeanant, the Home Office interfered, and directed that he should be.
The public comments upon the unsavoury, wire-drawn, and painful case of Reg. v. Scott and others are a warning to both Bench and Bar. There is little room for purely legal criticism. Lay comment has been unusually free. The Times fell foul of the judge and the prosecuting counsel, the one for stimulating scenes, and the other for not freely admitting any amendment of the particulars of justification. Other journals assert that the judge evinced a bias from the first against the defendants, and blame the counsel for the latter for keeping up a game of bluff. The jury also complained of what proved a long contest of words, and the conclusion which seems to be unanimous is, that the case has added to no one's reputation. There is nothing more dangerous, more prejudicial to the law and its administration, than the existence of a belief in the public mind that the scales have not been held with absolute impartiality; whilst in which judge and counsel engage, unseemly enough at Nisi Prius, are apt to become a grave scandal in a criminal trial. Consequently, we regret to see the comments which on this case have pervaded the lay press, and that there should be even a bare foundation for them.
The promotion of Mr. Justice Chitty to a Lord Justiceship of Appeal must be regarded as an appointment made solely on the merits and absolutely independent of all political and party considerations. Lord Justice CHITTY was elected to the Bench in 1881 by a Liberal Government, when he sat in the House of Commons as Liberal member for Oxford city, having as his colleague Sir William HARCOURT.
CLERGYMEN are, by sect. 9 of the Juries Act 1870, exempted from serving “upon any juries or inquests whatsoever," and in Re Dutton (66 L. T. Rep. 324), in which a solicitor's managing clerk was held to be exempt, it was decided that the general statutory exemption applied to coroners' juries. Not long ago, however, a clergyman having been summoned
a coroner's jury, and attended in pursuance of the summons, was informed by the coroner, in answer to a claim for exemption, that the point was a doubtful one, whereupon the claim of exemption was withdrawn, and the clergyman served upon the jury. The duty of making out proper lists of persons liable to serve appears to be thrown upon the overseers by the County Juries Act 1825, and by the same Act any person whose name has been wrongly inserted may procure
it to be struck out at the revision of the lists at petty sessions.
For wilful insertion on any of these lists of a person not liable to serve, there is a fine of not more than £10 by sect. 45 of the same Act, and by sect. 9 of the Act of 1870 there is an express direction that the persons exempted by that Act shall be severally exempt from being returned to serve as well as from serving.
The promotion to higher positions on the Judicial Bench of judges who owed their first elevation to a Government of a different party is not unusual. Thus the late Lord HANNEN was made a judge of the Queen's Bench, and subsequently judge of the Court of Probate, by a Liberal Government, and a Lord Justice of Appeal and Lord of Appeal in Ordinary by
Conservative Government. So, too, the late Lord BLACKBURN was appointed a Puisne Judge by a Liberal Government, but was made a Lord of Appeal in Ordinary by a Conservative Government. To give another instance, Lord BOWEN became a Puisne Judge under a Conservative Administration, but a Lord Justice of Appeal under a Liberal Government. These illustrations--to say nothing of instances in which political opponents of the Government in the House of Commons have been raised to judicial office, as in the case of Mr. Justice MONTAGUE SMITH, who was elevated to the Bench in 1865 by a Liberal Government when Conservative member for Truro, and Lord Justice HOLKER, who, as an exlaw officer of the Crown in a Conservative Administration, was made by a succeeding Government a Lord Justice of Appeal—do much to produce public confidence in the Judicial Bench as evidence that the judges, as in theory, so, too, in some instances, in practice, owe their positions to merit rather than to political considerations.
At the Wilts Assizes at Devizes, on Tuesday, Mr. Justice WILLIAMS, in the course of his charge to the grand jury, made an important judicial pronouncement.
He said no doubt some of them had seen the volume of criminal statistics which had recently been published. These statistics contained much food for reflection which those who had to administer justice should digest.
They seemed to show that there was great room for improvement in the method of the punishment of prisoners. He thought it would be a great advantage if those who had to administer justice should confer together more frequently as to the punishment which should be inflicted in certain classes of crime. At present, it was true, magistrates in quarter sessions conferred together, but judges and recorders of large towns worked on separate lines. He thought, if judges and chairmen of quarter sessions could confer together, or if permanent prison commissions could be appointed, more uniformity of sentences could be secured throughout the country.
The agitation in Ireland created by the report of the Financial Relations Commission has given rise to an argument which is highly absurd from a constitutional point of view. It is urged that the over-taxation of Ireland, disclosed by the report, is contrary to the provisions of the Act of Union. It rests, however, both legally and constitutionally, in the discretion of a supreme Parliament, waiving all moral considerations, to disregard these provisions. No guarantee could be more solemn than that contained in the Act of Union for the maintenance of the Established Church in Ireland. The compact, however, of the Union was made with an extinguished body--the Irish Parliament, to which the Union put an end.
