IThe pr a ctice or "settling" crimes
which the law doss not permit to be
settled, has bcome so common, and the
effect upon the morals •of the eornmu--]
nay are so damaging, that wo deem it
our duty to call public attention to the
It is a_very common practice for melt
who ' have committed some Infamous
crime, to quiet the party injured in his
feelings or estate by "theft bete," as it
is called in the Common Law. It is
now sometimes called " smart money."
A criminal, It frequently happens, is
clearly guilty of larceny ; the evidence
Is clear ; the person whose goods are
missing commences a prosecution, res
olutely determined to make an exam
ple of the offender. In the eyes of the
prosecutor, the I crime is an outrage
against society, and public
mands that the criminal be brought to'l
justice., He urges that there is no force /
in law, i unless it be carried into eitecu ir =
tion. dut& as a citizen canstrains
him to; become a prosecutoKand henna'
dertakes it ail, with the;expenses
dental, very cheerfully. It may be a
disagreeable duty,vbut the laws must
be obeyed, and fin. his own part, he is
willing to sacrifice his' personal inter
ests and feelings for the public good.
Thus*, reasons till the defendant is
caught by the constable, on' a warrant;
issdedi not in his own nanitt but in the
,dame of the Commonwealth ; and then,
as he tAees before him the outcast who
could be guilty of such a crime, the
first question he usually asks is, "What
has become of the goods, Money, pro*
erty ?" as the ease may be. The thief i
seeing himself fully cornered, and be
holding a distant but fast approaching
glimpse of iron grates and the life of .a
convict, is at once very condescending.
He has the goods -all safe, 'and they
shall immediately be returned to the
injured prosecutor. It is his first of-5
fense: he intends never to do the like
The prosecutor is not satisfied to let
. creature go', on." restoration of
the . goods "merely. ifn,sirch case, what
becomes of the majesty of the law ?
Would it be consistent with his duty as
a citizen of a great Commonwealth,
whose laws have been outraged, to per
mit the offender to go ? Never ! The
sovereignty must be respected ; the in
terest of all the people is more than his,
who is but a unit of infinity, a drop of
water in the ocean, to all the good peo
ple of the State. No, no ; it will never
do. The laws must be vindicated ; cri
minals must be brought to justice : he
cannot permit the culprit to escape the
just punishment his crime deserves.'
Such is the case of the prosecutor, as
stated in eloquent and glowing rhetoric
by his learnbi counsel, in whose per
son, as he stands before the bewildered
Justice, expounding the laws, (I. e.,
pounding with his doubled fist on Par-.
don's Digest or the last edition of Binn's
Justice,) all the majesty, dignity and
sovereignty of the Civil, the Common,
and the Statute law, are centered, at
that-particular time, ,and at that partic
ular place ; and the poor creature who
sits trembling in such a Presence feels
that his dayThfjudgmelt has come, and
that he is about to ifte-sallowed bodily
by the Justice, the constable, the prose
+Ur. iteirOUS 111 his
offense,, and so powerful andiall-devour
ing his adversaries, particularly the at
torney, who, he imagines, has but just
risen from a banquet made on the mus
ty and bulky volumes of Coke and Jus
Something must be done. About,thie
time the constable taps him on the
shoulder, and gays, with a? air of su
preme authority, " You are my man :
come with me." Nearer and nearer
come the prison bars ;"—he almost hears
the heavy iron door slammed together
with a bang, by a hideous mortal, with
.a look like a hangman, called the Turn
key. In despair, he cries for help. He
is docile. He is willing to do anything
for dear liberty. Will Mit the prosecu
toll relent? If he will, he will agree to
legve the country and never be seen
again. .. .
" This," the practical attorney sag- 1
gests to the prosecutor, " is the time to
broach a settlement. The defendant is
now in a mood that he may be expect
ed to have a reasonable appreciation for
the injury he has done one of the most
substantial and highly respected citi- .
zens of the Commonwealth."
They approach the poor fellow, and
the attorney says, " The majesty of the
law must be respected." " Yes," says
the prosecutor, " I always believed
that : ' The majesty of the law remit be
respected.' " " And the supreraitcy,
and power, and authority of the laws
and government under which we live r
must be, recognized and, submitted to
by all," adds "old mauler," as the
boys about town style the attorney.?
At this juncture, the criminal has
coneluded that " the laws and govern
ment and authority and supremacy,
sovereignty and all, must be respected."
Then Mr. Attorney says : "H o w
much?" and he swells out to the size of
three aldermen, as he puts the ques
tion, " Remember it is not for the
goods I am:prosecuting you," puts in
the prosecutor. " Counsel fees"—
" Yes; and I cannot work for a trifle,
in a case involving, as this does, im-
I ortant legal, political and governmen
tal questions, to the study of which I .
have given all my life," chimed in Mr.
" Mauler." ,
" And Joss of time, and injury to orie's
? feelings;? besides all the ' fuss and trou
ble,"' added the prosecutor.
The defendant opens.his pocketbook
and counts over-his money. He has
enough to pay the costs, barely. That
will not do. Crimes must not be suf
fered to, go unpunished. Yet he has no„
oney. But he has a cow, and he can
will that; and then he has a friend who
will lend him enough to make out the
balance, and take his pay in work.—
Thbargain is finally closed at $lOO and
It oes not matter what - Is the consi
deration, nor the extent of it : Such
an arra gement, by which the prosecu- '
tor agre s not to prosecute, for any val
uable co sideration, is an offense, and,
by reason f its prevalence, is one which
should be Inquired into ki every case.
It is prohibited by statute, in our State,
under penaity of a fine not exceeding
$lOOO, and Hsirisonment not exceeding
three years. ' tis time this practice was
stopped, and a 1 citizens are interested
in its suppress! n. Let it.be understood
that there is no such thing allowable

MANSFIELD. We take the following
items from a letter to the Elmira Advertiser, by
" Somebody" :
"Mr. John Murdaugh, our street commission.
er, has worked the streets and built the crossings
in a better manner than was ever done before.
" Mart King is turning off a car load of bed,-
steads per week, and from the facilities he pos.
sasses for procuring timber, he can make better
bedsteads and afford them choaperiban at almost
any other place.
" Elliott, ',Clark & Co., since they turned their
faetory into, a co-operative concern, aro doing a
first rate business, every one of the partners bo
ing equally interested in the amount of work
done, and the manner in which it is performed.
Of course More work will be done and done bet
ter. than where only one or two are interested.
" One night last week some burglars broke into
Mr. Kingley's boot and oboe shop, and carried off
about a hundred dollars' worth of boots and
Shoes. They were fools as well as thieves, or
they would have taken more from the fine stook
that Mr. tingsley had in his shop. No clue has
yet been found to the perpetrators of this deed.
