new History of France, that is almost finifitedi In the mean time he has published a curious Book, wherein he gives an Account of the Mani ners and Customs of the French in the several Times of the Monarchy.

Les Moeurs & Coutumes des François dans les differens temps de la Monarchie. Par M. Louis le Gendré, Chanoine de l'Eglise de Paris. Paris 17.12. i 12. Pagg. 353.">

The Author observes, among other things that great Precautions were formerly used in France for the Conviction of accused Persons. Seventy two -Witnesses were requifite againft a: Bishop, Forty

against

against a Priest, and more or less against the Lairy, according to the Nature of the Case, or the Merit of

the Perfon. Before a Witness was Interrogared, the Judge pulled hiin by the Ear, or boxed him, to give him norice that he should mind what he was going to Fay. When there was no proof in a weighty Accua fation, fighting decided the Case;' but when the Acculation was inconsiderable, a Mari was allow'd to clear himself by an Oath." The accused Perfor fwore, and besides was obliged to make others Twear in his behalf. Gontran King of Burgundy doubting whether Clotarius II. was the Son of Chilperic Fiedegonda," Mother of Clotarius, swore that he was a lawful Son, and made three Bishops, who were her Friends, and three hundred other Witnesses fwear the same, tho' properly speaking, none but she knew the Truth of the Marter. When thé Accuser and his Witnesses maintained that the accused Person was guilty, notwithstanding his Oath, the Difference was deterinined by a Combát.“ What a strange Me

*thod (says the Author) of judging of a Man's Ind « nocence! The strongest or the moft dexterous was

always in the right. If a Man was accused of

Murder," Robbery, or Treachery, he could not “ clear himself of the Criine laid to his charge, but

by shedding the Accuser's Blood. When a Dispute * arose about the Property of a Soil, or the State

of a Child, if the Cafe was doubtful, two Cham. ** pions were choseu, each of which maintained a Pará tý;

and fie' who had the Advantage over the other, cat the Adversary of the Party he defended:")

The Combat wanted to be authorized by a Sena tence : The Judgé appointed a Day for it. If the Combatants were to fight on Foot, they had only

Sword and Shield. If they fought on Horseback, they were armed from Top to Toe. Those Arms were caried by the Judge with Sound of Fifes and Trumpers, and bless'd by the Priest in the middle of the Field with great Ceremonies. The Champions fitore, before they came near one another, that Vol. IV.:
