THE CHARGE. The Chairman in charging the grand jury, briefly alluded to the various cases in the calender. He commented strongly on the absence of so many grand jurymen, but excused it on account of the late harvest, and added that another time the court would feel it their duty to inflict fines oa absentees. Referring to the appointment of public proseautors, he said he was glad the plan had been adopted in this country, as it would do away with settling criminal cases before they came on for hearing, lie also pointed out the increased jurisdiction granted to magistrates, by which they could decide many cases now sent to the quarter sessions.
