Now, we need not remind our readers, that, in the adIn the last Number of The JURIST will be found re- ministration of our criminal law, confessions are, under ported a decision in the Consistory Court, which, from certain circumstances, admissible in evidence, and are of the high reputation of the judge who pronounced it, we themselves, if sufficient in point of statement, concluhave no doubt is in accordance with the practice of the sive; that is, if an accused person has made a confession ecclesiastical court. But, if it is, it shews that the under such circumstances as render it admissible, and practice of that court, in respect to the evidence on such confession is sufficiently proved, and goes with suf. which it will act, is of a very singular character. The ficient clearness to the question of guilt, the accused case to which we allude is Noverre v.

There was no evidence, by witnesses, upon confessions alone, but there must be other eviof actual adultery,-no evidence of acts from which adul-dence. The question, therefore, is, what sort of evitery could be safely inferred; for, to return again to the dence.

And this was all. Standing alone, it is obvious hearing it, would feel that approach to conviction, that such evidence was utterly worthless.

If all that the rule means ground, that, as the agreement was one which the court is, that confessions are not admissible, unless there is could not perform as a whole, it would not restrain one

Now, there is no principle of the court more object or utility of which it passes the understanding clearly established than this, that the court will not

No such principle has ever been acted on in practically departed from, we mean the case of Rolfe this court; it has been laid down over and over again, v.
