  MAYHEM, crimes. The act of unlawfully and violently depriving another of the 
  use of such of his members as may render him less able in fighting either to 
  defend himself or annoy his adversary; and therefore the cutting or 
  disabling, or weakening a man's hand or finger, or striking out his eye or 
  foretooth, or depriving him of those parts the loss of which abates his 
  courage, are held to be mayhems. But cutting off the ear or nose or the 
  like, are not held to be mayhems at common law. 4 Bl. Com. 205. 
       2. These and other severe personal injuries are punished by the
