Matra. Editors:—l have no de3ire to occupy

itiot case,' in your paper of the 10th inst., 1 feel
bound to notice it, ytu say 'The jury considered
,tbe defendants partially guilty, and though they
Guild not declare them so by their verdict, they
were determined that they should not entirely es
cape punishment.' Did you make the above as
'totinding revelation by authority or any of the in•
tetlikent gentlemen that were on the jury in'the ri
ot case: or is it your own opinion that the jury
considered me half guilty?' Oh! Moses, who ev
er heard of a Fay deciding or agreeing among
thenaselves, that a man was•very near bting guilty
I,9rthe charge preliorA against him, but not quite?
This reminds me of an anecdote that happened at
school 'when I was a boy: the teacher called one of
the scholars up to him for some misdemeanor; the
boy obeyed, and stood in front of the teacher; the
.boy wag ordered to hold out his hand, he obeyed,
the teacher raised his arm with a rule in his hand,
snide a stroke at the boy's hand,but the hand was
little boys pocket; 'Well:says the teacher, .1 was
will near warming your hand for you, but not
otitis: So it appears that I was very near being
--gailty,'but not quite;' I was not aware that a man
could be 'partially' guilty. I thought that a man
must be either guilty or not, it such really was the
opinion of the Jury, it does not argue that they
were poaresacd of more than an ordinary share of
common sense, as a juror is sworn to 'give a true
verdiclaccording to the evidence.' There are ve
ry few but that will admit that the first part of the
verdict-aros just, and though I believe the second
mai of the verdict, making the 'defendants pay
the costaito be legal,yet I consider it unjust for any
jury to say that a man shall pay the costs, whom
they have pronounced Nov GUILTY. I would like
to know how the jury was led to the opinion that
I was 'partia/4 guilty' of cote hitting a riot: it
could not hove been from the testimony. Ido not
wish to find fault with the jury, on 'the riot case,'
or any other jury, but for them to say that they
considered mu 'partially guilty,' seems too much
like trying to apologiz for the very singular cur
diet, or else it is intended to convey the idea that
I was actually guilty, and that they, (otereilul
ereaiteiree) thought that rnaltmg me pay tte
roils would be a sufficient punishment.
