Dresden, Aug. 31.—According to the report of his
Valot de Chambre, Gen. Moreau was wounded by a can-
noa ball, near the entrenchments established before Dres-
den. On the 27th at about four o'clock in the afternoon
he was conveyed to Nuethlitz, where both his legs were
amputated below the knees, After the amputation, he
asked for something to eat and acupof tea. ‘Puree eggs
and some tea were offercd him, buthe only took the tea.
About seven o’clock he was placed in a litter, and iu the
eveaing convoyed to Passindorf by Russian soldiers, He
passed the night in the country house of M. Tretscheir,
grand master of forests. He only took in this house an-
other cup of ta: he complained much of the pain he suf.
On the 2sth, at four ta the inoviing, he was carrted by
Russian soldiers from Passindorfto Dippold.swalde, where

Mr. Evitor,
Our books teach us that whatever is not agreeable
to reason is not law ; and that law is not only founded
on reason, but is the very essence of it.
Thoughts are not at our own disposal, and however
they may be directed, no criminality can attach until
they are reduced to practice. .
Therefore alibelmust be published. Although the
publication of a truth may occasion ill blood, and
thereby cause a breach of the peace, yet the exposure
of immoral or vicious conduct must certainly do good
by preventing evil in others ; and as vice ought to be
eradicated, and prevented by all possible means, the
exposure of it is not only lawful, but dutiful.
Therefore a libel must be false. A falsehood may
be published that implicates nothing either ridicu-
lous or criminal; and as such a publication cannot
defame, it will not provoke revenge.
Therefore a libel must be scandalous. A false scan-
dal may be published with a good intent, for the pu-
blisher may suppose it to be truce, and if so, he is not
only free from criminality, but is in the direct line of
his duty.
‘Therefore a libel must be malicious. Reason, it
appears, defines dibel to be—false, scandalous, and
malicivus publication ; and whenever there is a de-
fect in any one of these four attributes, no Itbel ts
It is exclusively the province of the Jury to find
the libel; and in doing it they must find all the four
facts of falschood, scandal, malice, and publication ,
or cise they must pronounce, No Linen. Whether
euilty, or not guilty, must be determined by the
Jurors : and the Judge (who. as his title ierplies, ts
(ie mere voice of the law) is bound by his oath to
pronounce the sentence of the law. ‘The Judge has
no concern ia defermining the fact, that is, the wucé
and the detent; an action is cither guilty or innocent
according to the intent; and as the Jury must deter-
mine the guilt, they are to decide the intend as wellas
the act.
