Tub brief prognas of thu Brown murder
trial and lis rulher sudden snd unexpected
termination, seems to have strippod Ihe case
of Its interest, und thu usual term of a nine
day's wonder will hardly be allowed 11. Tho
public ml. ids seem to havo been imbued with
the opinion that tho prisoner was guilty, and
the trial was looked upon as not likely lo
come lo any other result, but to that of con
viction. In this centered what interest was
felt. Tho course of Judge Canfleld, decided,
clear and Independent in bis decisions, has
rather disappointed Iho popular expectation.
Mere circumstantial evidence, and but little of
this strong and direct, has had its legitimate
conclusion and interpretation. In Ibis state
of the case, we do not think that our readers
care to run through the testimony, knowing
that the case has been disposed of, and that
the prisoner has been discharged. We, there
fore, devote our colums to fresher and more
satisfactory reading, than what has become,
by the course of events, rather stale tho ro
llue of testimony.

Editor Ithgniph Within the past week we
have been favored with some very refreshing
showers ; they have wonderfully improved the
appearance of nature, and gludened Ihe hearts
of the people. Our village is so Well supplied
wilh shade trees that it presents a very beauti
ful and inviting appearance in summer, espe
cially after a good shower of rain. When the
dust is laid and the rich foliage of the maples
is well washed, It is a real pleasure lo walk in
our shaded Btn els. I sometimes wonder how
many of our citizens realize Ihe beauty which
exists around them I I think we havo about
as pleasant a village as there is on (lie Western

Last Wedensday evening, the Methodist had
a strawberry festival at the Town Hall. . Up
wards of fifty couples sat down to Iho tables.
This is not a large number, but there appeared
to be a good dial of kind, social feeling, and
all seemed to enjoy il. Il was gotten up ft r Ihe
purpose of raising money lo pay for some re
pairs inside of the meeting house. Ou account
of tliesu repairs there wus no service at Hint
church last Sunday. Many of the Methodists
attended tho Congregational house, and thus
made quite a lull congregation. I could not
help thinking how much better it would be
for the professing Christians of this place to
unitu nnd form one church have one meeting
house, put llieir strength together und pay one
man a good salary to ptvach to Ihcni how
much better It would be pecuniary and spiritually,
and what advantages il would give
them for doing good t
It is a settled principle that in union there
strength divisions weaken any cause. This
piinciplo is recognized in oilier departments
of life, and why should it not he so in the
of Ihe old man, who, when ho was going to
die, called his sons around him, and wishing
lo impress upon Ibelr minds Ihe importance of
being united, ho showed III m a bundle
rods, and pointed out how readily they might
snap them assunder, separated, but how diffi
cult il was to break the whole together. Il
said of Napoleon Boneparle that Ihe great se
cret of his success In bis campaigns was bis
kei ping his forces united. He did not, like
Ids opposing generals, scatter his army into
different divisious, but concentrated it upon
one point till he had annihilated il, and then
moved on lo another. Tho children of this
world are wiser in Ibelr generation than (he
children of light. Not until (ha nightmare ol
sectarianism is lilted w ill the church rise in
one united, irresistablo force.
Mr. L. B. Woolever has bought an Interest

is that he and Ids partner, Mr. Clark,

energy and pel severance of Mr. Woolever ful
