It is about time that lawyers clearly defined the nature of gifts. If I fall in love with a girl and give her a watch, and then quarrel with her, and snatch the watch from her waistband and keep it, am I a thief, or am I merely an unpunishable cad. One or the other I must be. If I am a thief, then I ought to go to prieon. But if I have a right to the watch, then I should be glad to know why any magistrate should oblige me to return it to the girl ? Richard Dickenson gave Emily Annie Meade a silver Geneva watch and a gold keeper ring. It is presumed that he either got tired of Emily Annie or coveted the watoh and keeper he had given to her. Anyhow he managed to get the things from her, and Emily Annie brought him before Mr. De Rutzen. Mr. De Rotzen discharged Richard, and ordered the property to be given up to Emily. If Richard stole the watch and keeper, why was he discharged ? If he did .not steal them why was he ordered to restore them? They were either his or the girl's. If the girl's, then Richard was a thief. If Richard's, then Emily had no right to possess then. If I were to give Mr. De Butzen a dozen of old port, then regret the gift and break into his cellar af tea dark, and carry off the bottles, would a brother-magistrate commit me for burglary, or would he discharge me and order the constable to put the bottles baat iatQ Str, De Etytaea'* c«U«c ?~X(iyfairt i.
