EXECUTION IN MOROCCO.
Another instance of capital punishment
was attended with the following singular
circumstances. A Moor of the village ol
Sharf had shot with a pistol in tho market
at Tangier, a fellow-villager, whom he
suspected of being too intimate with hii
wife. The brother of the murdered man
set out immediately for Mcknas, where the
sultan was then residing, and claimed ill e
life of the murderer. The sultan heard the
case; acKnowicugru me justice ni hip

also to be a manahyer ? Accept the prici
of blood, which is lawful unto true believ

from our Sehrerfiaii hands, and two bun-
tred mitzakel shall be the sum,'
To this the plaintiff replied, 'Can thai
sum purchase me a brother?'
'Co thy way,' said the sultan; 'we havi
heard and understood ; a letter will be givei
voti by the Vizier, in which our mandaii
hall be written.'''
Furnished with the sentence of death,
ihe man returned to Tangier, and presented
it t ih Governor. On the samo davof tin
