Collectanea relating to Ch. xvi. Quasi-Jury.
From the Morning Chronicle, 1st December, 1831.
“We call the attention of our readers to an extract from the Brighton Guardian, in another column, on the subject of a trial in which the proprietor of that Journal was concerned. It appeared to us at the time astonishing, after the defendant, Cohen, had in all essential respects established his defence, and after the fair and candid charge on that evidence to the Jury, that such ruinous damages should have been given. But the proprietor of the Brighton Guardian had the misfortune to have enemies for Jurors; and it appears that they were determined to make the most of the opportunity for gratifying their vengeance which the trial presented to them. The sort of justice dealt out to him, may be inferred from the declaration of a juror when remonstrated with,—‘Ay, but this is not the only case; this editor has been attacking all our institutions; nobody and nothing is secure against him, and so we determined to put a stop to it or to him.’ ”
