roll of tbe jury, nil responding to tlii'ir
name; Judge Ko.-ter charged thorn on the
Austin larceny ease, laying in substance,
that on or about ihe first day of May, 1883,
the defendant, 1L. 15. Ait-tin, vvn- charged
with purloining, or taking without being
rightfully po-..eed of, certain ponic-, be
longing to, mid being the property of, cer
tain Osage Indian-, living at tho 0;ige
agency in the Indian territory.
Xovv the law throws around, any and
every jierson, charged with a crime or mis
demeanor, the cloak of innocence until they
are proven guilty, and in this case, the gov
ernment must establish this defend mtV guilt
beyond a reasonable doubt, before you shall
find him guilty charged in the indict
ment. He theii deliued a reasonable doubt.
You are to be the exclusive judges of tbe
credibility of xvitiiessn..
These Indians are pni-.-ed of but little
education, but that is no reason why they
should he prrxod upon, but on the other
hand, it is a riMison why they should be all
the more carefully guarded in their rights.

If the jury find betoml a rc.iion.ihlu

called, add then, after the judge Irid asked
the usual questions as to whether they, the
jury, had agreed upon a verdict, the fore
man replied that they had. and that they
found the prisoner guilty as indicted.
This jury then discharged, and the
one in the Ho-tctteroiiserecalli-d. This kt
hon was churgiil with the larceny of one
horn-, in the Indian territory, the property
of C'lirrigan V Fnutey.

men were not satisfactory and were replaced
by others, when, after being sworn, the
trial proceeded. There win but one witness
put upon the stand, Mr. .smithy, who lived
on a ranch southwest of Caldwell, who

that be was in Colorado, and that the prose

Whereupon the prisoner was discharged
and the jury dioh-d.
The next case was another against IS. It.
Austin, and it now appeared, that there via
ii total of much indictments nguiiiit him for
the larceny of Indian ponies.
Mr. Will said that the prisoner de.-ired to
withdraw the plea of not guilt y, and enter
one in it''te.id of guilty, in each and nil of
tbe remaining i indictments, and prayed
for the leniency of the court.
Mr. Stanley plead for this on hcli-ilf of his
client. Mixing he had already been routined
here, in bad quarters, in our jail, since May.
lKSil, thatthe mere accident of the ponies
belonging to several owners instead of one,
had caused him to bo arraigned upon sewn
indictments instead of one, while the oH'cnn'
xvas no greater.
There vva throe people engaged in the
stealing, xvhile this one was compelled to
stand the blunt of it all. He bad thrown
himself upon the mercy of the court, and
that two years, Mr. Stanley thought, would
be mi ample punishment for his young
Col. Hallouell, the prosecuting attorney,
agreed with the defence that a sentence of
about this length of time would be ullicient,
all things considered.
ludge Foster recited the law bearing up
oftho case, touched the extenuating cir
cumstances, said that the iiiiximuui time
provided by oongre-s for such a case was
one year, but considering the several indict
ments and the x-alue of the property stolen,
he W'ouhl sentence the prisoner to one xe-ir,
upon the first ind ctment, and four mouths
upon each of tbe other six, making a total

The prisoner was asked to stand up, and
after declaring that he had nothing to sax,
he was sentenced to three x ear in the jveni

that they knew Thurman and Smith, that
they were present at a roundup near Buz

1, 18S3, when Thurman rode up to Smith,
xx ho xvas sitting on his horse, aifd said,
"Smith. I xant you to movo that camp."
Smith replied, that he had no authority to
move, it, and could not until he had author
ity. Thunnan said, "If you do not move it,
1 will," and Smith retorted by saying, "I
think it xvould not be policy for you to do

if you and I must fight, xve might as well
begin now," at the same time spurring his
horse against the animal of Smith's, drawing
a revolver and shooting Smith.
L. II. Henry xvould swear to the same, as

The chief marshal had caused subpoenas
to be issued for tbe-c pcrions, and had aided
the inarihal in locating them, but as they
had failed to bring them to court, and as
their depositions could not bo considered as

postponement of the ease until a day in Xo-x-cmbcr
or March next.

willing to acquiesce in the arrangement,

find ourselves in an assemblage where all
bear a name of higher honor than
any parli'im donation; an assemblage in
xvhich xve meet on the broad plane of Am
erican citizenship, and rejoice in the title
as in itself constituting a civic distinction of
priceless x-alue. An agricultural fair is the
farmers' parliament. On this day and on
this occasion, the mo-t independent class of
our citizens speaks to the xvorldby word and
deed for that great fundamental interest on
xvhich the republic re-ts for its security and
It has become a trito saving that agricul
ture is the ba-is of all wealth; but tho full
measure of the statement may be compre
hended when we remember that in the year
of grate 1881 the total xalue of tho pro
ducts from farm and flock in the United
States will exceed 3,000,000,000, an amount
brought forth in a single xear vastly in ex
cess of the national debt at its highe-t point.
We are not in the habit of considering Xew
England as specially distinguished for agri
culture, and v et the annual product from
her soil is greater in X'aluo than all the gold
taken from the mines of California and Aus
tralia in the richest year of their fabulous
yield. The farmer is the true mid always
tho successful miner, in the extrac
tion oi money mini tlie earth, a
fact mo-t strikingly shown in the hi-tory of
California, xvho-e splendid inarch to wealth
and power was only fairly began when the
energies of her people were turned to the
production of bread for the world, instead
of gold. The progress of the consumption
of 60,000,000 of people is brought strikingly
before us xvhen we realize how vastanronor-
tion of our aggregate product is ued at
home, and how small a snare is sent abroad.
The ono hundred and odd millions of Xew
England farm product does not support her
own people, and they am compelled to ex--change
the fruits of their mechanical indus
try to an enormous amount annually for tho
means of subsistence, so lav ihly outpoured
from tho granaries- of tho more fertile west.
And this fact is but onoof many which-how
tho independence of our peoploaml tho xat
extent of our internal exchanges.
This scene to-day has an enhanced inter
est when xve reflect that, throughout the
gorgeous autumn upon xvhich we have hist
entered, it will be represented in countless
communities throughout our laud. From
ocean to ocean, from northern lake to
southern gulf, tho richness of the harvest
and the contentment nnd happine-s of the
people will be shown on fields as fair and by
di-plays as brilliant, .is tho-e which now de
light our eyes and gladden our heart-. Xor
will autumn ehaut it. In spring scene-,
when the chill of winter on tho northern
border of the union shall make the southern
sun seem genial and welcome, our brethren
of the cotton region will continue the won
drous story. They invite us to witness at
the commercial emporium of the south, the
great triumph of southern agriculture in the
production of that single plant, whicn has
revolutionized manufactures, of xvhich they
have the finest of the world, and which has
enriched us beyond the reach of imagina
tion, and has aimed incalculably to'fho com
fort, health and luxury of tho" human race.
Standing a I do in the fair Xew England
states, it j, an agreeable duty to extend con
gratulations to Xew Kuglaifd farmers on tho
good results of this year's labors, and on the
general and more important fact, that at no
period in the history of Xew Kngland hus
bandry, has intelligent labor been blessed
with more profitable result- than during the
present generation. If there be any ono
that I heartily congratulate, it is the XuW
Kngland society on the brilliant siiuv-s of
this exhibition, and I beg leave to return
my sin cere thanks for all the personal
.mil cordiality with which 1 have
I At tho conclusion of Blaine's remark- bo

THE SQUARED CIRCLE.
KocKAXVAY, X. Y., Sept. 4, At day-break
this morning five hundred sporting men fill
ed the ravillion Sporting House to witness
the fight xvith hard gloves, Marquis of
Queensbury rules, between Jim McHugh,
of Glasgow, and Dave Fitzgerald, of Toron
to, for one thousand dollars and gate money.
The men appeared in the ring promptly.
McHugh weighed one hundred and twenty
six pounds; Fitzgerald one hundred and
I nnd forty pounds. The preliminaries being
finished, the men advanced when time was
called to the center of the ring, and then
commenced the most esciting fight on rec -ord;
lasting throe hours and thirty-five min
utes; and ending in a draw in favor of the
Scottish lad. It xvould have been
fought to a finish but for the
conduct of the crowd, which was
evenly divided in interest in the contestants
and there Wing largo sums of money xvag
ercd on the result. There seemed to be a
disposition on tho part of Fitzgerald's
friends towards the closu to crowd the ring
and bring about a foul on tho part of Mc
Hugh. At the conclusion of the thirty
sixth round the crowd became so demonstra
tive and disposed to interfere, that the ref
eree xwthdrow and another had to be chosen,
the men taking a rest in the meantime
about twenty "minutes. Both of the
men xvere badly punished, Fitzgeral liaxing
his left ear cut and swollen and his face dis
figured. McHugh had a badly swollen eye
and nose and cuts about the face. The first
round was composed of sparring, the men
showing whatever science they -Assessed
without getting down to business. The sec
ond, third and fourth rounds xvere of the
same tame nature, but when they walked up
for the fifth, Fitzgerald opened the ball
in a business like xvax-, planting
a left bander on McIIugh's nose. McHugh
returned the compliment with a terrific
undercut, which sent Fitzgerald spinning
to the'ropes. Then followed hard hitting on
both tides until time was called. Up to this
time tho fighting was in favor of the Cana
dian. In tho sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth,
tenth and eleventh rounds the men did little
hard work, though Fitzgerald got McIIugh's
head in chancery scx-cral times and xvas
called. oil' by tho referee. The thirteenth
round developed good scientific lighting.
McHugh distinguished himself in that round
by getting in some bant straight, undercuts
and counters, xvhich xvere well guarded by
his opponent who used his left hand to good
advantage on McIIugh's head. Tho follow
ing rounds up to the twenty-first were tame,
both men evidently sparring for wind. Fitz
gerald began to show signs of fatigue, and
used his hands lazily, allowing Mcllugh to
get in several under-clips on his cars, xvhich
now showed many ugly marks on his face.
Thirteen more rounds xvere disposed of in
very much the Mime style, xvhen -McHugh in
thu "thirty-fifth, in rc-ponso to the urging of
his friends, put on a determined
air, and showed a disposition to commenco
real bullies-. Fitzgerald did not respond
very encouragingly in this round, confining
his" work to guarding off McHugh's hard
blows. The thirty-sixth and thirtv-seventh
rounds were well fought, Fitzgerald's friends
shouting, yelling ana crowding around him
until ho braced up and faced the music in
dead earnest. McHugh opened the thirty
sixth round with n straight shoulder blow,
planting it on Fitzgerald's nose and knock
ing him to the ropes. Fitzgerald rushed up
and let out xvith his left, hitting Mcllugh on
the right eve. Four minute rounds wore
now being fought nnd the two men fought
desperately for the balance of
the rouiiiL The thirty-seventh round
was equally well fought, and both men
show cd signs of a collapse at the conclusion.
In tho latter part of tho forty-fifth round
tho men began to show x-iciousness and an
inclination to kick and bite each other, and
the crowd closing on the ropes threatened
to tike a hand in the fight. The referee de
clared tho fight a draw and ordered the sec
onds to take tho men from tho ring. Fitz
gerald showed he worst at the conclusion,
being badly punished in tho latter part of
tho light "
