wo months. A brief paragraph suffices to dispose of an important case, and it is fortunate, considering that economy of space is desirable in these last times, that all the fashions of old England have not been transmitted to this day and generation. During the time of the "Long Parliament," under Cromwell, it was common among the most fanatical of the fathers of New England Puritanism to adopt scriptural names, some of them consisting of several words of a favorite text. We subjoin the names of a jury said to have been empaneled in Sussex, England, which presents a fair sample of the names of that period, and may serve to amuse the reader: Accepted Trevor, Redeemed Compton, God Reward Smart, Earth Adams, Kill Sin Pimple, Be Faithful Joiner, Fight the Good Fight of Faith White, Hope for Bending, Meek Brewer, Faint Not Hewitt, Make Peace Heaton, Stand Fast on High Stringer, Called Lower, Return Spelman, Fly Debate Roberts, More Fruit Fowler, Weep Not Billing, Graceful Hurding.
