Page 236 - Violenla praesumptio is manie times plena probatio; as if one be runne thorow the bodie with a sword in a house, whereof he instantly dieth, and a man is seene to come out of that house with a bloody sword, and no other man was at that time in the house.
Page 242 - Because (not to speak of greater numbers) even two articles of circumstantial evidence, — though each taken by itself weigh but as a feather, — join them together, you will find them pressing on the delinquent with the weight of a mill-stone.

Traitorous bed-fellow with him he had none; a bed-fellow, however, he had, a female, whose reputation would have been ruined by the disclosure. Confusion more or less he could not but have betrayed.

Page 585 - iniquity, stopping every day their own pro" ceedings, why scruple to refuse credit to " their own acts?" It is now, however, fully settled, that the answer of the defendant, as well as the depositions of witnesses, in chancery, are evidence in a court of law ; and that " a decree of the court of chancery may be given in evidence, on the same footing, and under the same limitations, as the verdict or judgment of a court of common law...
