TjOVK An Mahbjagk. A case Wis
recendy tried in Rutland. Vermont,
in which Mis Muno:; recovered $1,
aJ25 of a Mr. Hastings f.r a breach ol
Marriage entrant. Tiie curiosity of
"the thing is. that the Vermont judge
charged the jury that no explicit prom
ise was necessary to bind the ptrties
ti a marriage c utract, but that long
coirtinW attention or intimacy with
4 female, wm a goo.! evidence of in
tended malriinftr.y a a special con
tract.' The principle of the case un
doubtedly i, that if Hastings did not
promise, he onzhl to hate ilont iU an 1
the lawlmld him responsible for the
iiennerfornvince of his du'y. We hive
idea f a young fellow dangling u
)iout a woman for a year or two with
out being able to screw thoir Courage
to the sticking poin', and then going
oft", leaving their sweetheart' half
courted; we hate this everlasting nih
ij'ct n I never to bite "h"n beating
the bush and never starting the game
this standing to the rack wi'.h'Hit
touching the fodder; it is one" of t!.e
one'ehi in twenty that can tell v lieili-
r slieis courted or not. No wonden
that when Betty Simper's cousin as
led her if Billy Doubtful was court
ingfier, she answered don't know
'xct!v ies s rtv rourtin, anl or-
tv not conrtin.' We have no Joult
that this Hastings is oneof tliesc s.irter
not fellows, and most heiriily d we
rejoice that the judge lias brought him
Upstanding with a $1,425 verdict.

' f mb Late Geo. B. Ocdes. The N.
Orleans Picayune of the 15th says: From
iroomsUnces which have transpired
within the past day or two, it is now
rendered certain that the late Mr. Og

but that his body was thrown into the

fore palpable enough that he died by the

visitation which must remain a mystery

guished physicians have examined the
Sody within the last twenty four hours,

that he came to his death before he was
placed in the water. We make this state

exciting subject, and to correct any un
