minal cases. Subject to this suggestion, and bearing the circumstances of the country in mind, we are entirely convinced that the present system is that which is most efficient for the administration of justice.
But it is impossible to contemplate the trial by jury without feeling convinced that its political disadvantages are inferior only to its judicial. On this we have no opportunity now to enter, nor is it immediately connected with our present purpose. But we may just close this article by observing that the juridical power of the people, through the medium of juries, bas, more than any other institution, preserved the English Constitution—it identifies
every member of the community with the administration of the law, and naturally attaches him to that law which he is called on to dispense, instead of setting him in hostility to the authority to which he is bound to submit. It prevents the possibility of collision between the people and the legislature, for it imposes on the latter the necessity of passing such laws as are adapted to the character and manners of the country, as such only will be vigorously enforced by the jury. It increases the intelligence and information of the people, and imbues them with a sense of right, a respect for property, for character, and for themselves.
