Judge MiephurtVs Charge ,
To the Grand Jury of Cumberland County,
at April Sessions, 1859. In accordance
with the request contained in the follow
ing letter, the President Judge has polite
ly furnished .the charge for publication:
■ --.., • April 10, 1839.
Hon. Samheu Hepburn, President Judge, &c.
The Grand-Jury of Cumberland, County
by their Foreman.beg leave to express tp
your Honor the great pleasure and satisfac
tion with which they, beard the very able and
appropriate charge delivered to them by your
Honor. at the present term of the Court, and
most respectfully request a copy of- said
charge for publication;
; With great respect, yours, &c.
' JAS. W. ALLEN.
(finllemen of the Brand Jury!
It is certainly gratifying to the Court that
from an examination of the calender furnish
ed from the jail* We are enabled to commu
nicate to you the pleasing fact of amamfest
the offences, enumerated on
our list. ;There are out, two charges of a
higher grade than larcenymrond not the usu
al number! at thiB:ferm, of the latter. But
from the prevalence of certain tumors that
have-reached the ear of every member of the
Court on, more occasions than one,, in relar
tion to offences of a-lower degree, thdugh e
rjually derogatory to the character of a mor
al community with, some of those .returned
on the calender before us, it is important
that while your inquiries are exerted in dis
cerning and.arresting the progress of .crimes
of a more aggravated and public kind and
consequcntly more. susceptible of caBy_.de-.
faction, [that your examinations be more mi
nute, and investigations more thorough, in
order* ff possible, to prevent offehces of a
secret and hidden nature from usurping the
place of those eradicated*. “The trust repo
sed in Grand Juries is of great and general
concern!” and, in the language of an Crate
nent author, “to them m Committed .the cus
tody of the portals of the law, that into the
hallowed dome no injustice may be permit?
ted to enter. They make, in the first in?
stance,the importantdiscrimination between
;the innocent and the guilty. To the form*
er. they give a passport of security! the lat
ter tjiey consign to a final triijlbyjury.”—-
They should be emphatically the leaders >n
[the great Work of moral reformation, and
' more devolves on them in the Character df.a
high and important duty, as conservators of
the morals and rights of the .community
.within the sphere of their operations, than
.any other .constitutional part of our judicial
tribunals! and precisely in accordance with
the faithfulness, or negligepce, withwhich
this sacred jlttty entrustedTto youcchargais
performed, will the result Of your.iradyour
successors action be known and felt through
put the community for:good or for evil.-r-
Grond juries are composed of men of respec
tability and’ intelligence, selected from, all
parts: of the county every three months,
deeply, interested in the welfare and secu
rity of the persons and! property of theciti
zens Of ourcounty generally, who.if diligent
in these inquires and conscientious and fear?
jess in the discharge of their duties,: cannot
fail to exert a inostsalutary influence with*
in the limits'of their jurisdiction. . : v .
contemplation; of ilaw iw offenccff (ahi
hut few in point of fatty worthy die atten
tion, of a grand- jury thuaorganizedandac
tive In.ita operations, can escape their no*
tice. or fail to- receive their impropriate ac*
don. - :The eath of a. grand juror is solemn
and comprehensiye, and. is. as specific ip .the
definition of your duties as’ the English lan
guage canmakeit in the namespace. - It is
die comtpissionnndcr wKiclreacli of yon act,

this, that the limits of your IHfestigattons
are not Cohfioed to 'the Wile offered to yon
by the Attorney General, not to the crimes
given yob. ib charge, not to, the evidence,
brought before you by the prosecutions this
is a, field tpo harrow for your. labors, and
prescribes u limit to your duties far within
the boundaries designated by your oaths*--
Ypu are not selected for the prosecutor, nor
for the Qpurt, but for the Commonwealth
and for the people, and surely they are
greatly interested in: having; all crime* sup
pressed, and every offender against the lawa
promptly and • properly punished, whether
the offence ia laid before you in a legal tech*
nicail form, or whether it exists of your know
ledge and requires a presentment to reach
the criminal. We,are not for circumscrib-
ingyqur "(lilig€nt inquirie9,” by more con
tracted bbbndariesthan the meaping of the
words properly import. Are yoti tnen. or
either, of yob; acquainted With i any tippling
houses in the'county? 'With any person;or
persons, now, or since the last Court, who
are - in the practice of selling liquor in lessj
quantities than the law directs, publicly or
.privately, at sales, vendues, township elec
tions, or other assemblies of people of any
kind ? Dd you knpw of any gambling-houses,
or taverns at which gaming of any kind is
encouraged, where money or any other arti
cle of value is bet, orhazarded-by the par-.
ties? Doyou'know of any disorderly houses
in your towns, kept as such to the annoy
ance of their particular neighborhoods? Do
you know* of ircquent andjopen violations of
i the sabbath by any persbn'or persons, or do
you know of any-other prcsentable,offencef
1 If so, your duty to the Commonwealth, and
I the aolemh obligation of your oaths require,
that you present the offenders, whether
friends or foes. These' presentment} are
accusations found by the grand jury of their
own accord and from their own knowledge
and observation, without any bill being laid
before you by the^Attorney General, which
are afterwards reduced into proper form by
him, and then sent to you in the same man
ner as hills Originally preferred by that offi
cer, end when found by you in due form are
indictments on which the defendant is brought
to trial before a traverse jury. '
■ Against the crime of gambling, in our town
land county, we feel compelled under an imr
perative aenae of duty, to request that yon
direct your vigilant and scrutinizing efforts:
die evil is increasing with rapid growth, and,
the inquiry is propounded pn all: sides, is
there no remedy? There is a remedy, if
iroUEht within oUr reach; the law has made
tion against the offenders: the fault thcn'Ues
at ourdoors in the ndminiatratlon of the law,
and it' becomes ns, and more particularly
you, invested with the power of ferreting
out these sinks of iniquity and suppressing
this growing evil, tb exert a more than-or--
dinary diligence in your inquiries, for-the
purpose of discovering who and where they
arc. ■ - _ .- ’■■ ;.. ' ■ ;
We Would think, under ordinary circnm*
stances, it was scarcely, a aoppos&ble case,
that a gambling shop, or a -tavern that'per
mits it which is worse; <xould exist, be en
couraged by the profligate of aIV ages,, arid
flourish in the midst of us on the prostrated
liopeaand fortunes of some .of pur most
yoUng men, sent here for the pur
pose of completing their education or, pro
fession, . drawn in in,an unguarded moment
by some adept in the business and UltimMe
ly ruined,, and yet escape the vigilance and
scrutiny.of successive grand juries who fear
lessly and conscientiously perforin .their du
ties! and 1 yet, improbable as the ease may
seem* it is not the less true, froin all thatwe
hear, that gambling is carried on to, a cod*
siderable extent in our town and county, and
the Court have as yet been unable .to lay
their hands on a tangible case of it'. I think
we may* if we persevere in supccssiveinves
tigations. calcillate with tolerable certainty,
on half the chances at least of getting some
oheiuror.inthelburpancls oftheyear, who
has tiy accident or otherwise-been let into
sufficient knowledge of; the-location of -the
implicated parties, to enable him to act in
his proper capacity, and reveal to the public
the doings of these offenders against italaws;
For out* part, . Wears anxious to perseverein
