JUDGE HEPBURN’S CHARGE.
On our first page we present to our readers the charge of Judge HEPBURN to the Jury, in the late riot case. We do not know when we have met with anything more worthy of publication, or of a careful and attentive perusal. The subject he reviews is one of great interest, particularly to a people bordering on slave-holding States, defining their duties, and also to Southerners, defining their rights. We have never read any charge to a Jury exhibiting greater impartiality. The evidence is left without comment entirely to the Jury – but the law as applicable to the facts, is laid down in the clearest manner, and sustained by powerful and logical reasoning.
