...We have also heard some of our legal gentlemen express an opinion, that some provision should be made in this territory for the trial of causes which properly belong to a court of admiralty. Such is the present construction of our judiciary, that it is out of the power of citizens of the territory of Michigan, who may have a demand for labor or articles furnished a vessel, to seize that vessel, forthwith, and detain her until their just demands are settled--and in this respect we believe they are far from possessing the rights which the citizens of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New-York, who reside on the borders of Lake Erie, have long exercised. Other improvements in our judicial system, may perhaps, be consistently demanded.
