quibus . . . rebus, from this (abl. of means with perspicio).

consilio, panel, i.e. the body of jurors (cf. Rosc. Am., p. 24, I. 2). An obvious, and apparently a deserved, compliment. Whatever the general character of the courts, Cicero had in this instance secured a jury on whom he could rely.

in rejectione . . . judicavit,decided at the challenging ("throwing out ") of the jury, i.e. on seeing the kind of men challenged by the two sides respectively.

ut . . . constitueret . . . arbitraretur:subst. clauses of result (justified by the introductory ea) instead of the more regular acc. and inf. of ind. disc.; ยง 571, c (332,f); G. 557, R. and N1; cf. H. 571,4 (501, iii).
