The case of John Ulutlncy came up in
the court of Squire 0tlorn ycatunluy morn
injr s Bttited in The Rcli.kti.v, but for
reasons lest known to the defendant him
self, he took a change otvenuo to Jutl'i
Olmsted where the case was tried in the
afternoon. Hut the witnesses for the pros
ecution did not swear what it was expected
they would-none of them knew thut there
had been any gambling in Gludney's place
and hence no case could be made out of it
and the acctucd was disclrtrg id.
Several Drunks about four in number
were brought before Judce Olmsted yes
terday, and were all dealt with according
to the law in their respective cases.
Plummer Martin, the notorious negro,
was brought before Squire Osborn yester
day on the charge of assault, but the evi
dence produced was not sufficient to con
vict ami he was discharged.
A mun named Crocket a notorious
Missouri rieMirrH", was yesterday arrested
on the ferryboat Three Mates, while cm
was lying at the Missouri shore. The man
is said to be guilty of munler, horse steal
ing, robliery, burglary and other crimes,
which we do nut now recall. It is prob
able that his case is a little exaggerated,
but that he is guilty of a very
serious crime is evident from the fact that
tw detectives from St. Louis had been
looking for him, had tracked him and
were his captors. His capture as related to
us was certainly a very ''neat job." lie
was quietly sitting in the cabin of the fer
ryltoat, bound for Cairo, when two men
came up to him ami seat
ed themselves one on each
side of him. lie was then quietly told
that he was under arrest and when he made
demonstrations to resist he was grasjied by
by both arms and manacled. Upon being
searched, he was found to have in his pos
session a large horse pistol a seven
shooter, with which he could, no douU,
have torn a house all io pieces. The of
ficers refused to tell what he was wanted
for; they maintained a dogged silence nnd
kept an eye on their prisoner until the
lmt reached Cairo, where they conveyed
him to the steamer Morgan tor the purpose
of taking him to Charleston, Mo.

The figures given out by the New
England Anti-Divorce society show that
in Vermont the proportion of divorces
to marriages is one to fourteen, in
Rhode Island one to thirteen, and in Mas
sachusetts one to twenty -one. A speaker
in one of Iho society's meetings
said: "A curious fact is that in Ohio the
number of divorces is in proportion to
tho New England element iu the popu
lation. Wherever New Knglainl inllu
eneo is felt there has been an increase.
Tho western reserve in Ohio, c. insist
ing of the twelve northeastern counties,
is said to contain a New Ktigland stock
purer than can be found anv where else,
except a few counties in Maine, and
here the proportion of divorces to mar
riages is one to eighteen, while in the
rest of tlie Mate it is one to nineteen
In Ashtabula county it is one to eight,
and iu Lake county the proportion of
divorce suits to marriages is one to six
and four-tenths. Iu smneof the south

Dr. W. II. Raird, one of tho leading
citizens of Saline county, Arkansas, was
digging a well on ids place, and had
sunk it to the depth of about fifty feet,
when a negro, who was working down
in tho well, became frightened at the
falling clods caving away from tho
sides, and was hauled up ami refused
to go down again. Tho doctor laughed
at him for his fears, and, to show him
that there was no danger, went down
himself, but had scarcely more than
reached the bottom when the well caved
in on him, burying him alivo. The
neighborhood was at once aroused, and
every effort exerted to get him out, but
the ground was so rotten that it caved
in as fast as it could he dug out. No
progress was made toward ilisinterrlng

a saw-mill five miles away, ami a curb

Going Without Glovos,
A writer in tlie Now Orleans Picay
une says that tho fashion of going with
out gloves, which has prevailed among
young men for somo time, owes its ori
gin to an accident. Tho I'rinco of
Wales had been dining and wining
rather latn with several other "jolly
good fellows" ami subsequently attend
ed a recrjttion a little tho worse for
liquor. Ho had forgotten his gloves,
but was in no condition to stand on
trifles. His little irregularity instantly
revolutionized tho fasTiion, for, as his
ancestor by courtesy remarked, "nico
customs curtsy to great kings." Im
mediately all the swells went to reecp
tions witli their hands hare. "Unhap
pily, says tho writer in the ricaiunc,
"tho fashion spread to this country, and
at opera, theater, ball and reception our
jeuuessc three woro no gloves. It
looked badly enough anywhere, but
when it came to gentlemen dancing
with elegantly attired ladies, and en
circling a delicate silk or inimaculalo
satin waist with an arm whose unglovod
hand, aided by the dust and oilier
causes, left an indelible imprint upon
tho back of the dress, it became high
time for tho ladies to protest al thus be
ing 'handled without gloves.' So some
bright young mail, fertile in expedients,
in a flash of inspiration pulled out his
silk handkerchief, and gracefully insert
ing It between the ttress and the baro
hand prevented a social revolution and

Referring to the work of the Revenue
office, I am reminded of tho suspicions
all the country people have of every
stranger they see. Having business up

went to the terminus of the railroad
ami then set out on horseback. About
noon I saw a log-cabin, and called to
ask for some dinner. After calling,
"Halloo! halloo!" a half-dozen times, a
white woman appeared at the door.
"Can I get a snack to eat and some
feed for my horse?" I asked.
"Dunno," she answered through her
teeth, which were tightly gripping her
"Rut I'm hungry; and see how fag
ged my horse is,,r I said.
"Well, I reckon I dunno about it,"
was tho only reply,
"You must try to give me a little

"Well, I reckon." And she nodded
her head toward the corn feed.
The cabin was of the kind found all

"Why, what makes you think so?" I
asked. "Do you take every man that
comes along for a revenue man?"
