America is the place for experimental legislation. Laws are enacted, and, from time to time, are allowed to drop into desuetude with a certain alacrity. To be sure, it was but lately that a learned judge in an English Court entered on a disquisition in reference to witchcraft. Still, that showed some tenacity of ancient formularies, for witchcraft was discredited for ever by one Reginald Scot, Esq., some three hundred years ago. The very latest sensation in law-making is the Bill proposed in Minnesota for the prevention of the marriage of the unfit, and we hope to obtain some account of its provisions and of the debate in the State Legislature in due course.
