THE CAMBRIAN QUARTERLY MAGAZINE AND <&t\\it &epertorg* No. 3.—JULY 1, 1829T. — Vol.1. WELSH JUDICATURE. To the Editors of the Cambrian Quarterly Magazine. GENTLEMEN, Knowing the spirit in which the Cambrian Quarterly Magazine originated and is carried on, a spirit most purely patriotic, seeking anxiously to support every effort and sentiment which can tend to advance the intellectual and moral wellbeing of our country, I am not afraid of communicating my opinions upon a^ subject of such vital importance to the principality as the Welsh judi¬ cature, although those opinions totally differ from the view advocated in your first number. To look at a question on all sides, to consider it in all its bearings, is essential to a right understanding and a just conclusion; and nothing tends so much to the satisfaction of all parties, both those who assent to, and those who differ from a decision, as to know that a fair discussion has been had, and that opinions on both sides have had their due attention. In saying this I do not wish it to be con¬ sidered that my opposition to your former article is lukewarm or indecisive : I must own to you that article struck me as savoring strongly of a Jove of innovation for innovation's sake, written in a spirit of scrutiny which could find more pleasure in de¬ tecting and pointing out the timeworn defects of an ancient struc¬ ture, than in admiring and wishing to preserve the firm and useful part of it. I looked through it in vain for any indications of prac¬ tical experience or of discriminating censure; I found but a repe¬ tition of Lord Cawdor's vituperations, passing sentence upon our privileges in a tone altogether foreign from that patriotic anxiety so leading a characteristic in your Review, that I am still at a loss to conceive how it crept into the Cambrian. no. in. k k
