Not illustrated. 2012-02-19 edition. Excerpt: this case, the state has "joined" the whole transaction in one indictment. In People v. Austin, 1 Parker's C. C. 154, the indictment was like the one at. bar, and the ruling of the court in that case sustains my 9 Grat. 727; 29 Maine, 324; 2 Carter, 91; 1 Hale's Cr. L. 531; 2 Earl's Cr. Law, 741; 2 Leach Pl. of the Crown, 718-720. Many of the authorities upon this point cited by the gentleman upon the other side in support of his position, upon a careful examination, will be found to furnish no such support. Among the list may be selected the case of Regina v. Brettle, 1 Car. & Marshman, 608; People v. Warren, 1 Parker C. C. 338; The King v. Pedly, 1 L. Pl. Cr. 242; Price v. State, 19 Ohio, 423.

Her penalties are for the violation of law for offenses against the peace and dignity of the sovereign, and whatever penalties she imposes must be regarded and. treated as more
