How T9 SvrDvs A Vicious Hobbe,
On looking over some old papers tbe
other day, we came across the follow
ing, which, if true, is worth knowing.
ft seems that a fruitless effort was being
made in tbe blacksmith's shop to shoe
a vicious horse, , which resisted all eff
orts, kicking abide every thing but an
anvil, and came near killing himself ag
ainst thst, when by mere accident, an
officer returned from Mexico was pass
ing, snd being made acquainted w ith the
difficulty, applied a complete remedy by
the following simple process:
He took a cord, about tbe sue of a
common bed-ccrd, put it in the mouth
of the horse like a bit, tied, tightly on
the lop of the animal's bead, passing hie
left ear under the string, not painfully
tight, but tight enough to keep Ins ear
down and the cord in its place. This
done, he patted the horse gently on the
side ol the head, and commanded him
to follow, and instantly the horses ob
eyed, peifectly subdued, end as gentle
and obedient as a well trained dog, suff
ering his feet to be lifted with entire im
punity, snd acting in all respects like
an old stranger.
The simple siring, thus Lied, bad made
him docile and obedient as any one
could desire. The gentleman who thus
luroished ihisexceedingly simple meaiis
of subduin s very dangerous propensity
intimated that it Is practiced inMex'
ico sod South America, in the manag
ement of wild horsea. Be this as rt may
he deserves the thanks of all ow ners of
such horses, end especially the thanks
of those whose business it may be to

THE SUPREME COURT OF OHIO.
AFTER THE BULL THAT BUTTED
THE BULLGINE OF BRIDGE.
REPORTED BY R. B, WARDEN, OF
THURSDAY, Jan. 10, 1856.
-The Court met purstant to adjourn
ment, ' .
Present: The SNA' , Chief Justice;

So. 1 1 1. 'fio'f vs Tht C. C. &. C.
R. R. Co.' iu error to the District
Co urt of Lorain Co.
Thurman.C. J., delivered the opin
ion of the Court. Ii'tld-
1. That the common las; doctrine
i that requires the owner of domestic
animals, uot unruly or dangerous, to
keep them upon premises, .and makes
him trespasser if he suffer '.hem to run
at large "and they go upon the uninclos-
ed Isnds or.'enother, is not Isw of Ohio,
being inconsistent with our statute law
and contrary toNthe common usage thst
has alwaja prevailed io this Stsie,
2. That remote negligence of the
plaintiff will not prevent bis recover
ing for sn injury to hisptoptrty immedi
ately caused by the negligence of tbe
plaintiff that defeats a recovery must be
a proximate causa of the injury.
3. Suffering domestic snimals to run
at large, by inaans whereof they atray
upon an uninclosed railway track, where
they are killed by a train, Is not, In
general, a proximate cause of the loss;
and, hence, although there may have
been some uegligence being only a rr-'
mote cause of the loss, it will not pre
vent his recollering from the R R. com
pany, the value of the animals, if the
immediate cause of their death was
negligece of the company's servants in
conducting the train.
4. The bare fact that a railway is
unlnclosed there being no statute requir
ing it lo befenced, does not, in general
render the R. R. Company liabla to pay
for animals straying upon the track and
killed by a train such want of fencing
being, in general, only a rinot cause
of the loss.
0. The psrtmounl duty of s conduc
tor of a train is to Watch over ths safe
ly of the perions and property in his
charge, subject lo which, it is his duty
to use reascnable caro to avoid-unnecessary
injury to animals straying
upon the road. Judgment .a fflemtd.
