A biographer of Judge Blackford, says the Albmy Zaw Journal, shows tbat the judge did not believe in de minimi*. In preparing his opinions and the matter for bis reports, he studied the art of punctuation ; be read tbe best books for style; searched the latest reports for law, and as far as possible remodelled the opinions of his associates until it is said they became like his own, "clear, compact, and complete, carrying no weight of immaterial discussion, and losing no weight through grammatical leaks or rhetorical cracks." "He was equally exacting in the use and in tbe spelling of words." It is stated tbat while bis eighth volume was in press, he delayed the entire establishment three days in order to determine the orthography of the word "jenny," a female ass. He had written it with a "g," but finding it spelled differently, he was not content to pass it until every book in his library had been searched, paying 125dols. for the delay occasioned to the press and printers. The word "muley," a cow without horns, gave him great trouble. He traced it to the Irish " moileu," the name of a breed of cattle in Ireland, spelling it m-u-l-e-y, although be never felt satisfied with having suffered the use oi tbe word, especially as it had been ignored by lexicographers. It is stuted that Mr. Jndah, a prominent lawyer of the State, boasted that he secured the delav of a decision for three years by simply suggesting to his Honour, who had the case in band, that Chancellor Kent and Judge Story differed in their manner of spelling the word " eleemosynary."

three weeks are likely to elapse before it is presented to the Lord Chancellor.

The House Op Lords recommenced its sittings (which last for barely a mouth), on Thursday last with a list of appeals, which are equally divided between and Scotland. The only appeal standing for judgment is Commiaaionera of Worka and Public Build, inga v. Angua, the voluminous opinions of the judges in which are still under the consideration of the law lords.

The Contest for the coionership of Central Middlesex will be watched with great interest on account of the principle involved. A thoroughly competent and experienced lawyer candidate is in the field, and the question of whether corouers should be chosen from the legal or the medical profession is, therefore, raised in its proper form. We should hardly be disposed to go so far as the resolution passed at the meeting held at the Law Institution on Monday, and affirm that the office of coroner ought, under all conceivable circumstances, to be held by a lawyer; it is enough to say that, cceteria paribua, a lawyer ought always to have the preference. Pat in this way, the case for the legal profession appears to be unassailable. Let us take it from the medical standpoint, and admit, for the moment, that the object of a coroner's inquest is only to ascertain the cause of death, and that the evidence on which the jury have to proceed is mainly medical evidence.- Does it follow that such evidence must be unintelligible to anyone but a doctor? How then do lawyer judges in criminal cases, depending mainly on medical evidence, contrive to understand the evidence of doctors and to lay it before juries? If lawyer judges, possessed of no special scientific knowledge, make a jury understand the purport of doctors' testimony (and no one can pretend that they do not), how can it be alleged that because a coroner possesses no special scientific knowledge he will therefore bo unable to comprehend or explain the medical evidence? If he is a man of general intelligence and ready apprehension, will he not be likely to put it before the jury in a far more intelligible form than a medical coroner accustomed to talk only in medical jargon? But it cannot be admitted that the object of coroners' inquests is only to ascertain the cause of death. The inquisition of the coroner finding a man guilty of murder operates as an indictment; hence the inquiry is necessarily into the guilt or innocence of the suspected persoD, and is therefore on the same footing as other preliminary criminal inquiries. Will anyone sny that in the case of an ordinary criminal inquiry scientific knowledge is more essential to the judge or magistrate than knowledge of the rules of evidence and skill in the practical conduct of a legal inquiry P

The Pormal Notification to the Speaker by the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland of the arrest of Mr. Dillon was rendered necessary by section 3, sub-section 3, of the Protection of Person and Property Act, which provides that "if any member of either House of Parliament be arrested under this Act, the fact shall be immediately communicated to the House of which he is a member, if Parliament be sitting at the time." Mr. O'connor appears to have raised a question of privilege, on the ground that Mr, Dillon was on his way to London to
