Strona 272 - A person charged with treason or other capital offense shall at least three entire days before commencement of trial be furnished with a copy of the indictment and a list of the veniremen, and of the witnesses to be produced on the trial for proving the indictment, stating the place of abode of each venireman and witness.
Strona 737 - A bare fear of any of these offences, to prevent which the homicide is alleged to have been committed, shall not be sufficient to justify the killing. It must appear that the circumstances were sufficient to excite the fears of a reasonable person, and that the party killing really acted under the influence of those fears, and not in a spirit of revenge.
Strona 785 - A judgment in rem I conceive to be an adjudication pronounced (as its name indeed denotes) upon the status of some particular subject-matter by a tribunal having competent authority for that purpose. Such an adjudication, being a most solemn declaration from the proper and accredited quarter that the status of the thing adjudicated upon is as declared, precludes all persons from saying that the status of the thing adjudicated upon was not such as declared by the adjudication.
Strona 94 - Judge, but of that sound and reasonable discretion which governs itself, as far as it may, by general rules and principles, but which at the same time withholds or grants relief according to the circumstances of each particular case, when these rules and principles will not furnish any exact measure of justice between the parties...
Strona 518 - ... for seeing somebody must be a loser by this deceit, it is more reason that he that employs and puts a trust and confidence in the deceiver should be a loser, than a stranger.
Strona 327 - Such association justifies, if it does not imperatively require, the conclusion that the fraud referred to in that section means positive fraud, or fraud in fact,, involving moral turpitude or intentional wrong, as does embezzlement, and not implied fraud, or fraud in law which may exist without the imputation of bad faith or immorality.
Strona 224 - It is scarcely credible that this little girl, while enduring such excruciating pain -perhaps torture would not be too strong a word to characterize it — from this frightful wound, would have been capable of framing a story with a view to her ultimate advantage of gain, or for any other ulterior purpose.
Strona 12 - Marriage, in contemplation of the law, is not only a valuable consideration to support such a settlement, but is a consideration of the highest value; and from motives of the soundest policy is upheld with a steady resolution.
Strona 168 - ... involuntary killing shall happen in the commission of an unlawful act, which in its consequences naturally tends to destroy the life of a human being, or is committed in the prosecution of a felonious intent, the offense shall be deemed and adjudged to be murder.
Strona 498 - green paper goods," " business that is not legitimate," "cigars," "green cigars" or by any other name or title, or any other device of a similar character, shall be guilty of a felony, and on conviction shall be punished by imprisonment for not less than one year nor more than five years, and by a fine of not less than one hundred dollars nor more than one thousand dollars for each offense.
