Nkw Law Firm. 8. M. Hague has ta
ken into law partnership Wm. H. Hub
bard, of Buffalo, N. V., as will be seen by
card published elsew here. Mr. Hubbard
comes to ns highly recommended, not on
ly as a lawyer but an upright man in ev
ery respect. We tind him a genial gentle
man, and wo hope he may find Napoleon
a pleasant place to live and do business in.
Tho Ashtabula (Ohio) Democratic Standard
thus speaks of Mr. Hubbard :
"We were agreeably surprised last week
by a visit from our old friend VV. H. Hub
bard, Esq., formerly of this place, but for
some time past a resident of Buffalo, N; Y
Mr. Hubbard was on his way to tho west
ern part of tho State, the name of the
place we cannot remember with tho de
sign of making a permanent location, and
engaging in the practice of his profession.
Mr. Hubbard Is an able lawyer and those
entrusting cases to him can rest assured
that whatever energy and legal skill can
do to.seoiuo success will be done. As an
advocate he ranks with the first lawyers of
the State. In politics Mr. Hubbard is an
old line Jeflersonian Domocrat. In sun
shine and adversity he has ever stood by
the flag first thrown to tho breeze by
Thomas Jefferson, and on ail proper oc-
by that statesman and patriot. As an
ouective political talker he has but few
equals and no superiors in the State. Asa
lawyer we wish. Mr. Hubbard the success
his legal learning and ability merit; and
politically the reward his long attachment
to an; fearless advocacy of Democratic
principles entitles him to. If he desires
them tkie highest political honors ot the
rftate wMt his acceptance."

A Pleasant Time. Lawyers, notwith
standing their cutting and carving and
their disregard and carelessness of social
gatherings and customs, have a social na
ture peculiar as it is to themselves and de
veloping only among themselves. We dis
covered this on Friday evening last when

eign attorneys attendant on Court, includ
ing Judge Moore and the officers of the
Court, assembled in Beilbarr.' Parlors to
partake of a supper prepared for them.
They enjoyed themselves hugely and had
a "high old time" and who would not af
ter such a supper. John knows how to do
such things and its a mighty bard job to
beat him at such a task. A better supper
could not have been provided, nor a more
appreciative company have enjoyed it.
"The Flood in Napoleon. Thursday
last the ice commenced going out of the
river at this point. The river rose rapidly,
flooding the flats, or "Goose Town," to a
depth that was never known before, or at
least for near half a century. . Families in
this quarter of the town were compelled
to vacate their dwellings, and the damage
to property is great in the aggregate. The
bridge had a narrow escape, tho only dam
age done to it however was the tearing off
of part of the footwalk, by huge cakes of
ice from eighteen inches to two foot in
thickness. The ice was the heaviest known
in this section, and we are inclined to be
lieve the water was the highest, although
there are old citizens who think not, and
they point back to a time some forty years
ago. It was a grand sight to see the ice
go out and the scene was witnessed by
hundreds ol our citizens.

El. Nobthwbwt: I waa aurprUed on
perusing your lawua ol Feb. 3d, when I
noticed a coruuiuiiicatioa tram N. E.
Bolles, in regard to a buaiueaa tranaaction
between him and tnyaell. And in order
that your readers and tbe public generally
may judge for themselves and form their
ow n conclusions, I will make the follow
ing statement :
In tbe latter part of the year 1875, this
man Bolles who represented himself as
deputy Sheriff of Fulton county, Ohio,
came to Naioleon to arrest' a man by the
name ol Smith, and through the assistance
of parties here accomplished the task. A
abort timo afterwards, on the same day of
the arrest. Smith gave Bolles the alip, tak
ing leg bail, which was done through the
incompetency and negligence of this officer
Bolles. Soon after iheescape I met Bolles
on the street, and I must say a more or
rowtul object it baa never been my lot to
meot;. tears in his eyes, his voice hardly
above a whisper, blubbering like a calf, be
related his doleful account of the stepping
out of Smith. He no doubt felt as if every
body was laughing at him, and making in
quiries where the unfortunate gentleman
was from, which was the truth. He told
me be would almost pay any price to rc
capture Smith, and if I succeeded in get
ting Smith for him he would pay me $.'0.
With that understanding I promised
Bolles 1 would do all iu my jiower to 're.
lieve him of his unpleasant embarrass
moot, and undertook the job of arresting
and delivering Smith to Mr. Bolles, telling
him (Bolles) to keep quiet and go home
and attend to his business, (if bo had any)
and it I met with success would inform
him by telegraph or otherwise. Sometime
after this agreement, and after spending
time and money, Smith was arrested and
by me delivered to Bolles, in Defiance. He
paid me 84, claiming be bad no more
money, but would send me tbe balance,
which he never did; and I have every reas
on to believe nevor intended to. Last Ju
ly I sued him and recovered a judgment
of 946, with interest. On the 1st day of
Dec., 1880, he wrote me n letter wanting to
know my terms of settlement, which
were forwarded to him: and on the 18th
day of January, 1881, we settled; I being
well satisfied that I could not collect a
dollar from him by law, consequently
took 811, he, Bolles, paying f ! costs, and
not as be represents, me paving costs. If
Bolles bad paid me at the time as he
agreed, instead of keeping, me out ol my
monev for over five years, I would have
taken $12, as he made such a poor face and
as I had compassion for him, he being so
unfortunate in the detective business. But
as he showed strong indications to beat
me, I considered it nothing but lair to
hold him to his agreement, consequently
sued him for the 150 and it there was the
slightest show to collect it, I would not
have taken a cent less. If Bolles though
it a clear case of perjury, why did be not
Instead of sneaking out of town as soon as
he left his article for publication, step ov
er to the grand jury which was in session
directly across the street from the North
west office and present his case. So much
for his straight case of perjury.

maliciously charged with "absconding," leaving an
indebtedness of from $14(10 to $300, and other re
ports made which I can prove to be libels. Is this
just? I could not uot have been reated worse had I
been a perfect stranger and a reputed swindler. Is it
Hkelv that I wonld return to Ohio were I conscious
of wrouging anyone intentionally. 1 leave the public
to judge in the matter. All that I have stated in this
nud othcrexplanatlons I can prove if necessary bo
fore anv tribunal. If the Jtffrnniim, who seems
from the above article to have been instrumental in
first attacking my reputation, refuses to do me Jus
tice aud retract the libels published, 1 can afford to
wait and submit the none to a higher authority than
that of man God. Time, the great expositor of all
things, will prove, better than words of mine can,
who is right in the matter, the .Irfermnimi or my
self. In conclusion, I have written the last word of
explanation I shall offer through ihe preBB. I make
no threat. But if these libels are persisted In I shall
ask tho protection of the law and appeal to tho courts
for redress. Poor though I am, I will bob whether
such wronus can be committed with Impunity in
America-tlie professed home of civil and religious
liberty. Chas. I. Cbowthkr,
