Tlie following case is so instructive, es- pecially to our legal friends, aud so important 'as a precedent that we should consider it a dereliction of our duty, if we omitted to lay it before our.readers. For thotigh^we do not make it a practice to familiarise the public 'with thc black side of human nature, as ex- posed in our courts of justice, we never omit when any case of general interest occurs, "to detail it in our columns. Emanating as the following defence does from the great and highly gifted mind of Jeremy Bentham, it is .well deserving the notice of every subject of ?;BriHaft law, hut particularly of those barris- ters who occasionally indulge in unwarrantable invectives agaiust unfortunate defendants or witnesses, and of those judges who sitting on a bench of justice, suffer such things to take place before them, and contaminate the court.

The Courier.   FRIDAY, JULY 13, 1832. We last week briefly touched on the by- roads of the colony, a subject of such impor- tance, that wc had intended to dilate upon it as connected with the Survey department, at considerable length in. our present number. But the sudden influx of advertisements and other matter has compelled us to postpone our observations until our next. We may how- ever in the meantime briefly remark, that while the settlers throughout the colony,are anxiously, waiting to see the several cross- roads fully aud finally fixed, the subject, we know, has bee.11 long a matter, of equal interest with the Surveyor)Genera], but in too many instances" there has been occasion, for thc sake of general convenience, to undo what was for- merly dorie,' 'that it- is now essential that the work should' be' a Complete and. not a pre? cipitateone.
