Business for our Criminal Court.
We stated in our last week's paper
that one of the ."nation's wards,"- by
the name of Isaac, had been arrested,
lodged in Jail, and that he would
"unbosom" himself of what he knew
about much of the rascality that had
been doue in and around Eaton, for
two. or three years past." Isaac, al
though without education," is no fuol,
and we would not be surp'riscd if he
had rendered this place as much val
uable information as. did many, of the
"intelligent contrabands" onr--great
Generals, during our late "onpleasant
11 ess". with -our Southern brethren..- .
V Upon his information and disclo
esure8,.afBdavit8 for,.the arrest of El
rfier Thomas, John Smith and Isaac
McLean, were issned and placed in
the hands of Michael Ryan, who, on
Thursday, last,- brought - the - living
bodies of the two first .named. betcre
his Honor, Mayor Foosr.', 'Elmer was
charged by Isaac as being the "setter
up"" of the job done at Eidson & De-,
G root's establishment, where several
hundred dollars worth of leather was
abstracted. '; Isaac's knowledge of this
affair comes from the fact, as he stated
in evldeuocof . 2Imer . offering him
$16;C0 and a pair of Boots lo transport
the pi under, to Indinapolis, andtliere
to dispose of it. On the testimoiiy'of
.this- intelligent contraband,'' -Thomas
"was "-liC'd for his 'appearance' in""' the.
sum of .$30 J, Oa, in default of which he-
was commuted to the ConimissionerV
pest houses known as our Jail.
-...John. Smith was next; and iii order
that no reflection'.' may be cast upon
the large aild respectable Smith fami
ly of this county, we will here state
that Johu belongs -toi the "colorbd
persuasion." He is charged with,
several thefts, but the one upon which
he was arrested, is for assisting in
spiriting" away a horse, in September
18 TO, the property of Jolin T. Deein'.
Isaac's story is that John and himself
were "picketed" with Bevolvers, a
short distance from the stable of Mr.
Deem, with orders to shoot at the p-.
pearauce of an enemy, while McLean
and Dodswbrthi a Harnflton confede
rate, secured the booty. For this
"sentinel" duty, Isaac . states that'!he
and John , received. $16,00 yeacU , i h

"not guilty," .and declares 'for God,'

The report of this affair sent to the

great injustice to Joseph Burgoyne,
Jr., as the testimony proved. Instead
of Mr. Burgoyne holding down Mr.
Cook while Weiland pounded his
head with a stone, the former gentle
man only "mixed in" as a mediator,

were in jail, nor is the skull of Mr.

The Potatoe Bug.
Like the locusts of Egypt, the Colo
rado potatoe beetle has come in this
region of country and is eating up
every green thing in the way of to
mato plauta and potatoe vines. The
only effectual' remedy heretofore has
been to catch and smash, but this year
the enemy is rather too numerous for
that. Iu the way of killing the "var
ments," we have found it most expe
ditious to tako a cup of coal oil, and,
with a straw or stick, put a drop on
their backs. It is a shure shot, and
bags the game veryrapidly. "We pre
sume coal tar would answer as well
aud perhaps better. Possibly a solu
tion in water could he made strong
enough to drive off the bugs, and still
be weak enough not to in in re the
plants, and be put on with a sprink
ler. Whoever finds a remedy for the
pest will deserve well of his country.

In matrimonial life, to which It is the privilege of
but few to attain. Fifty years of your wedded life

Cod has been great toward you in sparing your
lives' and in enabling you, amid many blessings to
pass through these years side by side. That mercy
enables you to-dsy to say. what perchance not one
Iu a thousand of those can sxy, who have entered
the state of matrimony. Tour children nnite with
you, as al.io do we your neighbor's and your friends
in blessing the name of the Lord for the care and
mercy which he has exorc'sed over ua during
. You as a husbaud and father have realized all
that tne sweet singer in Israel said, when be spake
and sung as follows: ''Thy wife shall be as a fruit
ful vine by the side of thy house; thy children like
olive-plants round about thy table." Psalh. lis 3.
. Your wife Is still at yonr side, and yonr t hildreu
are still ai-ouud you, with the exception of two who
have been removed from your midst by the angel of
death, Children areaheritage of the Lord, and
children's children are the crown of old men; and
the glory of children are thoir fathers." Your's to
day is a ha,ipy lot, Your days have spoken, aud
the multitude of years have taught you wisdom.
Rich in life's experience in the world, rich in the
enjoyment of God's mercy and favor, rich in the
heart of a kind and loving family, 1 repeat, Your's
t'o-day is a happy lot. Wfc do not envy you.
-You have Utrgeiy obtained that wii.ch yoj.so
long and faitkfully labored for, and you to-day
have the pleasure of seeing your children comfor
tably situated and doing houor to your name. They
give evidence' that your instructions and advice
bavs been well received, atiU that your admonitions
have not been given in vain. This certainly is a
source of consolation to you, and a credit, an houor
alike to you and your children, and we your ueigu-
bor's and yonr friends rejoice with yon. Your chil
dren have to-day brought affections offering In the
presentation of various articles of value, aud alrea
dy have they received your blessing. Precious as
the gold itself Is which reminds you of the fiftieth
anniversary of your wedi'ed life, yet this is not as
precious In your eyes this day. as is the grace and
virtue of a dutiful child. You value their gifts, but .
you esteem t'.ieir virtues more. These arc like onto
an' ornament of gold around your neck,or like onto
a crown of glory uiwa your head.
When, this da- fifty yeurs ago, you stood with
clasped hands befo-e the hymeneal altar, you stood
there like.Abrnbam before the Lord not knowing
the way by which. In the providence of God, you
should be led. But that mystery Is solved now,
aud your thoughts are' now daily dwelling upon
that higher, and holier union which will soon be
consnmated between Christ aud his redeemed peo
ple In the paradise of God. The church is tne bride
aud as such will rejoice when the time shaU have
come for her to'emer in to the marriage supper of

b.it it perlshetl, and "ye were not redeemed with
Corruptible tilings, as silver and gold, but with the

the blood of Christ cleanse you from all sin, and
