cording to custom, to produce two witnesses; but the trifling claim not justifying much extra expense in the hiring of false testimony, the plaintiff declined availing himself of this privilege. The only alternative was for the cadi to administer an oath to the defendant, who, having been duly sworn, was pronounced the gainer of the cause, and requested to pay the costs, which were five times more than the value of the article in question. The arnavout, being somewhat of a speculative genius, coolly put his hand in his bosom, and producing the disputed gimlet, threw it at his accuser, saying, "There, have your gimlet, and pay the costs.'

"It is true, that, by way of reform, a commercial tribunal of justice has been established, but unfortunately without any beneficial result; and his Excellency Lord Stratford de Redcliffe has very justly observed, that the very atmosphere of Turkey is impregnated with venality.'

"In such a poisoned atmosphere no salutary influence can be exercised until the axe is laid at the root of the evil. There is no security for property, nor any inducement to honesty. A man has the privilege, and even the temptation, under the existing laws, to injure his neighbour to any extent, and the innocent have no other means of protecting themselves and their interests than by resorting to counter dishonesty. For instance, if a man is unjustly accused of owing a debt of 1007., it would naturally be inferred that he would deny the debt; but such an honest procedure would not answer in a Turkish court of justice, for it would immediately give the plaintiff the privilege of producing two hired witnesses, by whose testimony the defendant would be condemned to pay the pretended debt. The only alternative in such instances is, not to deny the accusation, but to verify the principle, set a rogue to catch a rogue,' by acknowledging the debt, at the same time declaring that it has already been paid; and by this means the accuser is deprived of the privilege of suborning witnesses, and the defendant avails himself of it. Thus the moral sense of the community is corrupted, and self-preservation impels the people only to strive to excel each other in roguery."
