Excerpt from American Criminal Trials, Vol. 1
Judicial investigations with a view to the discovery and punishment of crimes, as they involve the best interests of society, always excite an attention com mensurate with their importance, wherever they are publicly and openly conducted, as in this country and in some of the states of Europe. They exhibit hu man nature ia an infinite variety of positions, and show man as he is in action and principle, and not as he is usually drawn by poets and speculative phi losophers. The circumstances of difficulty and danger, with which they surround the accused, effec tually test and develop the character while, at the same time, they severely task the highest energies of the mind, in mortal struggles for victory, liberty, and, not seldom, life itself. Events and transactions, stranger and more wonderful than the fictions of the most fruitful imagination, are not unfrequently re vealed to view, as realities, in the proceedings of criminal tribunals.
