Some ot the young men, who hayo
been making several efforts to organize a
social amusement club, met lust evening
ami concluded to abandon the object until
next winter, if more eutliUBiasm is not
showa before that time. Their failuro to
effect an organization now is to be re
gretted. A negro named Billy Wilson, who was
bound over for stealing a bolt of flannel
from Mr. C. R. Stuart some time ago and
placed in the county jail, escaped yesterday
by jumping the fence. Late last night ho
had not been caught, but tho officers arc on
the look out for him, and his rccapturo is
ouly a question of a little time.
Yesterday afternoon a mulo hitched to

sign-boards, which had been placed near
the outer edge of tho sidewalk. After re
peated efforts, the animal was again placed
upon its feet without being injured.

wejieuus, in some degree, on what its
details may be; but a proposition to abolish
petit juries, und try accused persons before
judicial commissions, would meet with no
favor, in spite of the reputation of judges

jurois are incompetent or corrupt. Yet
such a proposition would not be very much
more revolutionary than Senator Kuyken

Our readers will remembrr the case of
Mr. Rliey Boyd, a prominent young man of
Paducah, Ky., who was on trial for bur-
gulary, committed while under the influence
of liquor, aHd who was arrested hero and
was made the subject of an address in our
Temperance hall. His trial was concluded
soma days ago, and day before yesterday
the jury rendered a verdict of not guilty.
The court room was crowded at the time
and the scene was very affecting. The
Paducah EnterprNu refers to it as follows:
"At the announcement of the verdict in the
case of the Commonwealth vs. Khey Boyd,
yesterday in circuit court, a general burst
of applause rang through the room. After
wards .Mr. Boyd made a short but most
eloquent address to the couit, jury, bar
und his attorneys. The first and sec
ond named he thanked for the fairness und
honesty with which the trial had been con
ducted and the latter for the interest they
had manifested in his case and for their
able defense of his cause. In his address
Mr. Boyd called on the Omnipotent to wit
ness that he was innocent of the accusation
made against him, and said many things
more eloquent and beautiful than we can
describe. His mother, who throughout the
trial has been a faithful attendant at court,
brightened visibly at the verdict, and no
one who witnessed the scence could help
but be glad with her. The end of the trial
and its result is a great relief, not only to
Mrs. Boyd and her son, but to many others
who were interested in it."
