sions to the present Judiciary system are
such as must strika the most superficial
observer, and these, among others, are
quoted as imperfections which loudly call
for ligislative interposition. The present
Judiciary destroys that permanent and
universal rule of action, which the law is
intended to art >rd, for the reason that
there are several Judges in the .State,
each supreme in his own Circuit, and
each perhaps differing in his construction
of the Lw, to which all must look for
safety and protection. Evidence whi h
would establish a demand in one Circuit
would totally ful in another, and for cer
tain crimes a particular punishment would
b ; awarded in one county, while in anoth
er the same crime would bring down upon
the criminal totally different judgement.
Again it is objected, and with much
propriety, that from the decision of the
Judge therm is no appeal; which is virtu
ally true, for although suiters are permit
ted to go from the verdet of one Jury to
that of another, yet this priviledge is
rendered a nullity in f.ot, while the same
Judge who presided upon the first trial,
presides before the special Jury, and re
delivers to them the same legal senti
merits which he had formerly charged,
ami from which it was intended and de
sired to appeal. These are truths which
we are forced to acknowledge from the
sad experience of every day‘s practice,
and if equality and certainty in the con
struction and administration of the Law*
are at all desirable, then it follows that
the People should instruct their represen
tatives to take such steps as are necessa
ry to procure the benefits which must
result therefrom. How can this more
properly be done than by expressing, on
the back of his Ticket the wil! of the vo
ter, at the approaching election, either bv
endorsing thereon, ‘Court of Error * or
‘No Court of Errors.’ We respectfu !y

Pursuant to the wishes of the
Grand Jury of this county, we beg
leave to hand you their presentment
on the subject of establishing a Corn*
for the Correction of Errors in this
state. AVe think with the Grand Ju
ry, that in h matter of such great i; -
portance to the interest of the conimu
nify, public opinion ought to be con
sulted,* that it is due to the good p u
pie of this state to refer the question
at once to them, for the purp >se o!
eliciting aw expression of their senti
merits, at the next general election
We therefore respectfully recommend
to the Justices of the Inferior Com*
•f each county, to give, public notira
that the presiding Magistrates at tin
general election in October next, will
receive the votes of the people on the
subject; that all voters favourable t<
the establishment of such a tribunal,
will write on their ti kefs COURT
OF ERRORS, and all those Oppose; :
to it NO COURT OF ERR.)H i
and for the purpose of giving elli, a y
to the will of the people, let a return
of the vote so taken be made to tin
Executive Department, to be laid be

Extract, from the presentments of the
Grand Jury of the Superior Court of
Chatham County, May Term, 1828.
We will not conclude our pre
sentments without an earnest recom
mendation to our fellow < itizens, tbe
People of Georgia, to make a common
effort to obtain a decisive expression
of their sentiments, concerning the
establishment of a Court of Errors.
But the recommendation of Grand
Juries in this matter is not sufficient;
the sentiment of a county may or may
riot be expressed,* & we are warned by
experience of such recommendations
having been so often made without ef
fect, that we propose a direct refer
ence of the question to the people.
Upon subjects of less importance to us
a public vote has been solicited, and
has been received as conclusive ol
the fate of any contemplated alteration
of our laws, or the constitution but h
a resort to the people is a modern im
provement in representative govern
ment, proclaiming in the Hall of Le
gislation the will of the constituent
upon constitutional changes, without
impairing the dignify of the represeii
ta'tive; or controlling his freedom of
action, iu prescribing the details to
give effect to such positive demonstra
tions ot the public voice. Indeed it
is the only manner in which the peo
ple, in a representative government,
can act democratically; and by it
! more certain and unbieSM rj expres-
siotts oi their sentiments ran be given
than were ever obtained in the aggre
gate assemblies of renowned am ient
democracies. We therefore recom
mend the exercise of a right upon this
occasion, by the people, arid will very
briefly state some of our reasons l'ur
deeming the subject of such impor
We think the Judicial System of
Georgia needs a Court ol Errors,
because its practical operation with
out such a court lies destroyed the
permanency and universality of the
law, as a rule of action. Because e-|
veil in the same district, the law of
yesterday is not the law of to-day, the
decisions of a Judge are not obligato
ry upon bis successor; and the proof
which at one terra to enable a p rty
Ito recover, will not he sufti ieut at the
next; not because there is any change’
in the evidence, but because tnelawj
has been changed by the change of
the J tnlge.
We object to the Judicial System
of Georgia, because it confides to the
judgement of a single individual, (su
preme in his circuit, and from whose
decision there is no appeal,) the great
rights of life, liberty and pr perry.
It is notorious that iu counties ad
jacent, but in different circuits, the
law applicable to our ordinary con
rads is differently administered.
That evidence which would fix the
liability of parties to notes of hand and
nits *l exchange in one circuit, would
se insufficient in another; and the rules
regulating the introduction of testimo
ny in actions to try titles to land, are
o variant and opposite in diff rent
1 *r nits, that with the same evidence,
me man has recovered his estate,
whilst another, in an adjoining coun
‘y* and of a diff rent i in uit, has been
permitted to maintain a tortious pos
The statute of the State prescribing
die order of paying debts of t xecutors
tnd administrators, is differently ad
ninistered, and their liability to an
ictioh lor a devastavit depends upon
he circuit into which they may re
nove ahd reside, . ft<t having tody
nd fairly administered the estates
represented by them iu anotner.
, Our Penal Code is differently in
terpreted in different circuits, and
tbe s eme larceny consigns one felon
to the Penitentiary for years, and an
other to the whipping post. These
re some of the existing differences hi
die administration of our laws; many
others might be adduced, and the on-i
ly remedy to prevent the multiplica
tion of them, is a Court of Errors.
We therefore respectfully recom
mend to the People of the cuunly of
Uiiatnam, to give on the first Monday
in October next, an expression of their
seiumi-mts upon this subject; and re
quest that the Magistrates presiding
at the election on that day, will act
