The Recorder had a large number of persons before him yesterday for minor offences, and disposed of them as speedily as possible. He held his Court in the "sweat room" of the City Hall, which was so densely crowded and so intensely warm that lawyers, witnesses, prisoners, and spectators came nigh suffenating before the business was concluded. If court rooms are designed as a sort of a purgatory in which to punish all who chance to enter their doors, then the present one is perfect in every particular; but if they are intended for cool, calm judgment, and attentive bearing, the one now used by the Recorder is entirely unsuited. Cannot Market Hall be had for a short time for the use of the police?
