    • Capt. William Hackett commanded the sloop Indeavour of Salsbury, in the county of Norfolk, in Xew England,'" in 1671, and in May of that year acted a conspicuous part in the first recorded jury trial in New Jersey. Gov. Carteret had insisted that payment of duties at the custom-house in New York, by vessels entering Sandy Hook, gave no right to trade in the province of New Jersey, but that license therefor should be taken out at the custom-house in Elizabeth Town. Capt. Hackett, not entertaining that view of provincial sovereignty, undertook to trade on the Jersey side, after having paid die duties only at New York. The governor seized his vessel and summoned a jury to try the offender upon a charge of illegal trading. The captain conducted the defense himself, and is said to have presented with much ability fourteen grounds for acquittal, enough, one would conceive, to bewilder an ordinary jury.. That body, "after a 2d and 3d going forth," came in and declared that " the matter Committed to them is of too great waight for them," and were discharged. A second jury suited the governor's purpose better. They promptly found Capt. Hackett guilty, and his sloop was declared forfeited. [3]
