Parly Reform Sinecures

Turning aside from dry and Waving all such thorny and at the same time parlous
speculation, let us come to a few plain facts: plain
though general matters of fact.

1. Such is the certain delay, vexation and expence, and coupled with
at the same time uncertainty of success that consequent
upon the capture of an enemy's ship, that
in a class of cases occupying a very considerable
extent, the capture of an enemy's vessel would be
plainly repugnant to the manifest dictates of human
prudence.

2. Of this delay vexation and expence the far
greater part is factitious – being the result of the
action of those causes a catalogue of
which may been seen in the work entitled Scotch Reform
lately published by Mr Bentham.

3. The uncertainty as well as a large portion of
the delay vexation and expence has in part for its excuse the
shape in which the evidence is collected and received:
a shape the unfitness of which to the purpose of extracting
the tricks of the case is manifest to every eye
too manifest to find even any learned hand or lawyer
hardy enough to deny it – a shape to the exclusion
of which Jury trial is indebted for an at least one half
of its advantage. ☞ Add Double fee Scribes & Advocates want of interest.
