Pursuant to the wishes of the
Grand Jury of this county, we beg
leave to hand you their presentment
on the subject of establishng a Court
for the Correction of Errors in this
state. We think with the Grand Ju
ry, that in a matter of such gnat im
portance to the interest of the oommu
nity, public opinion ought to le con
sulted; that it is due to the good poo
pie of this state to refer the question
at once to them, for the purpose ol
eliciting an expression of their senti
merits, at the next general election.
We therefore respectfully recommend
to the Justices of the Inferior Cour
of each county, to give public notice
that the presiding Magistrates at the
general election iri October next, will
receive the votes of the people on this
subject; that all voters favourable to
the establishment of such a tribunal,
will write on their tickets COURT
OF ERRORS, and all those opposed
to it NO COURT OF ERRORS;
and for the purpose of giving efficacy
to the will of th* people, let a return
of the vote so taken be made to the
Executive Department, to be laid be
fore the ensuing session of the Legisla
lie are Gentlemen,
Respectfully your Obedt. Servts.

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 (irizens, the
People of Georgia, to make a common
effort to obtain a decisive expression
ot 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
not 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 of
the fate of any contemplated alteration
of our laws, nr the constitution,—Such
a resort to the people is a modern im
provement in representative govern
ment, proclaiming in the Ilall of Le
gislation the will of the constituent
upon constitutional changes, without
impairing the dignity of the represen
tative; or controlling his freedom of
action, in prescribing the details to
give effect to such positive demonstra
tions of the public voice. Indeed it
is the only manner in which the peo
ple, in a representative government,
tan act democratically; and by it
more certain and unbiassed expres
sions of their sentiments can be given
than were ever obtained in the aggre
gate assemblies of renowned ancient
democracies. We therefore recom
mend the exercise ofarigfit upon this
occasion, by the people, and will very
briefly state some of our reasons for
deeming the subject of such impor
>Ve think the Judicial System of
Georgia needs a Court of Errors,
because its practical operation with
out such a court has 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 his successor; and the proof
which at one term to enable a party
to recover, will not be sufficient at the
next; not because there is any change
in the evidence, but because the law
has been changed by the change of
the J udge.
We object to the Judicial System
of Georgia, because it confides to tin
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 property.
it is notorious that in counties ad
jacent, but in different circuits, the
law applicable to our ordinary con
tracts is differently administered.
That evidence which would fix the
liability of parties to notes of hand and
(ills ol exchange in one circuit, would
be insufficient in another; and the rules
regulating the introduction of testimo
ny in actions to try titles to land, are
so variant and opposite in different
circuits, that with the same evidence,
me man has recovered his estate,
whilst another, in an adjoining coun
ty, and of a different circuit, has been
permitted to maintain a tortious pos
The statute of the State prescribing
the order of paying debts of executors
and administrators, is differently ad
ministered, and their liability to an
action for a devastavit depends upon
the circuit into which they may re
move and reside, aft r having fully
and fairly administered tlifc estates
represented by them in anotner.
Our Penal Code is differently in
terpreted in different circuits, and
the same larceny comsig s one felon
to the Penitentiary for years, and an
other to the whipping post. These
are some of the existing differences in
the administration of our laws; many
others inigot be adduced, and the on
ly remedy to prevent the multiplica
tion of them, is a Court of Errors.
W therefore respectfully recom
mend to the People of the county of
i Chatham, to give on the first Monday
jin October next, au expression of their
sentiments upon this subject; and re
quest that the Magistrates presiding
at the election on that day, will act
as a Committee to receive their votes*
We respectfully recommend to our
fellow citizens in every county, to a
dopt the same inode and time, to ob
tain a similar expression of public
We request the Justices of the In

the best way of giving efficacy to the
will of the people, when it shall be ex
pressed in this regard-
