Tho order to show cause won made under the let article of tillo 11,chap. Ill of tho Hevbed Sututae, (p H76), an J nndor tho 4th subdivision of tho lOia section. The Coroner had certified to tho Court the uaince of the resistors, their alders and abettors, to the end that they might be proceeded against for their their contempt par huam to section let (llO) of 2 It H.,441. A uiatiiiotirn la inado between proceedings In such a ease and tho** under the tillo proceedings or for contempts t?eoforco ctvtl remedies, (2 K. 8., 624.) The 14tb aeotloa of the Statute Pist referred to (d It. k, 278), provides that nothing In the preceding sections shall be construed to extend to any proceeding against parties or officers. an for a contempt, tor the put pore of enforcing any otvtl right or remedy, I and in proeeodinga under tbo Idler act It is esaenttal t> iho liilllnboii of punwbmetit tbat tho Court shall adtodge tho act to bavo Impaired, defca ed or prejudice*! tho rights or remedies of a party * Tbls dlatlnciion Is referred to t> llr. .fustce boa worth In .bo note of the People vs. Compter*, (2 Duer. 678;, and the case of Adams vs. Dan or, J Brod. and Blng., 24. Is an example of it A sherin o offVer sorted the defendant with a 00,17 of a oojuiar, showed him tho original and explained tho objoet. Tho dcl'endan rullarcd htm and ordered him 10 quit hia pro scneo. < >n moving for an attachment for a contempt of tho process, tho cocntel was lesirod to obtain an affidavit, poltiling out moro fully in what reaped aid to what do greo >b< art of violence ob-trnctod the due exectiuoa of tho process o" tho Court. l>u another day, nothing belug added, the Camt wnd "they would lay down aa rale * whether every collaring ami -liakiog an utlkier or would nut bo deemel a contempt of the OmM; but It aullioed to a ay, that uo ewe wa< here inado wbieh lib cloned any !u:h obet. action of their procoaa aa to require thin aninmary mode of puniabmont" The l'Jtn section of tbeatatule (Si K 8. S'<7,) J1 recta that In ooaea where the ecnlempt la not committed In the pre aenco of the Court, the party charged elta.ll be onUded or the accusation, and have a reasonable time to make hie defence. ThU waa given by the order to show canae. Tho counsel for tho defendant instils that the oaae in not within the provision or the statute; that the ^ order or process moat be served before the caae of NlMMi f*n artae. I think not. In my optaloa, when a party knows of the szUtence of an order >0 the bands of an officer to be sorvei upon him, and wOfallr prevents that service by np?n force, mate or direoted, U.e resistance ta as fully within the statute as If he bad received and contemned It. In the Commonwealth vs. tMy, (d Vlrg. cases 1,) Keoly was punUhod as for a contempt, tor using means to prevent one Wright fr >m uttenifng aa a witness tc prove a deed executed by him, leely, altar a aubro un biyl been served upon Wright: and the Practical Register aeflnos a to be "a dlzobeilonce lottM Court, or an opp' Ing or desidslng the authority, justice and dignity thereof. Pomutnnes It arises from om or more opposing and distirbtng the execution orservioaof the process ot the Court, or using force to the party that serves It '' (I'ract. Keg. W 100 ) Hoe al?o 1 Libert'a History of the Common l'leaa, 'JO-'Jl, for an account of tho ongin of the power, and tho reacuns why a trial by jury In such cases is not a right. Tho aOldavlui on the (art of the defendant have r a<! 1' out a case exonerating him from either the act or resistan:e or the Intention to resist. CUs own . oath ta corroborated bv Uml of Dutcher, that no com munication of the Tact that the Coroner bad process to serve upon him waa made to him. lhe inquiry, aud tin only pcrtlnont Inquiry, la whether tho defendant know of the Coroner having an order to aerve upon hiin, or whether there arc facts enough deputed to to make him chargeable with such knowledge. In Ihta view I hatcher Is contradicted by 1'orry as to the announcement of his p-eseealng a writ, and his intention to serve It. But Duteher cannot be contradicted by Pewy as to tho cmlacinu to apprise the defendant of that fact. It might lend to render his statement doubtful aa to the one foot, 11 he was not to bo believed as to the other, and with oath Igainai Utio & roi|Ut wiurwmu tu UUUKI| m luin^ IU julry.
