PROCEEDINGS OF COURT.
A Slow Verdict- The Homicide 'Caso
Comes to a Suddon Close-Senencos of
the Convicts-The Presentment of the
Grand Jury-A Lively Doo umont.
The following is a synopsis of the
business done in the Circuit Court since
our last report:
In the case of Jim Carter and others,
charged with assault and battery wit.it
intent to murder, the jury went out
late Wednesday evening. The foretnan
soon returned and aimounced a fail
to agree-the Jury standing eleven to
one. The .Judge in striuedlsl the jutry
to continue tiheiir dcliberutions , snaii, a
otstaibile beiig plate(l at the jutry
roomu, the (ourt adjourneid till nine
o'clock on Thursday nwnuin g. The
jury were clled into Court and asked
by the Judge if they had agreed upon
a verdict. The foreman responded in
the negative, and stated that their dis
agreement was upon a t ii'er of fi'ct.
The Judge then ordered the jury to re
tire and continue their deliberations.
After a brief absence they returned
with the following verdict: "(Juilly,
as to James Carter, Rutus Robertson
and John Peter Cole. Not guilty, as
to George Martin, Peter Martin and
3cnjaminul Afarti n1."
The next case taken up was that of
the State vs. Green Caldwell, colored,
indicted for the murder of Burrell
Caldwell a brother of the prisoner.
31r. A. M. Mackey appeared for the
defence. Tha prisoner pleaded "Not
guilty," and the jury was empancled
in the usual form. The circunistances
of the case have already been given in
TmirNEws AND HEnAL). The line of
defence was that the wounds inflicted
by the defendant upon the person of
the deceased did not cause his death,
but that he died of peritonitis. )r.
Ht. F. Gibson, who had made the post
rnorte~m examination, described the
wounds inflicted, and gave it as his
opinion that death wvas not solely
caused by such wounC The wit'e of
the decensed, and several other' wit
nesses testified as to his having been
unwell for some1 days befor'e tihe fl'acas,
suffering with measles and a severe
aff'ection of the bowels. Drs'. Rt. B.
IHanahan and C. iH. Laidd, sworn x:s
medical experts, gave it as their opin
Ion that the wounds inflicted, as5 de
scribed by Dr'. Gibson, were not snfi
cient to cause death. In this state of
facts, the defendant's attorney mnoved1
that the Judge Instruct the jury to ren
dcer a verdict of acquittal. HLis Honor
stated that In his opinion there was
not evidence sufficient to showv that the
deceased died from the wounds inflict
ed by the defendant. iIe therefore in
struLcted tIhe jury" to render a ver'dict
of "Not guilty," wich wvas according
ly done. The prlisonier was discharged.
No other criminal eases were tiid.

The second crossing on the Rail
road above Whito Oak is reported in
bad order--in fact inl such condition.
as to seriously entidangor the vehioles
of travelers. The culvert on the Rail
road near IIobblerod Branch is also
in such condition as to damage the
crossing oil the public road at this
point. ''he leaving of 11(11(1 cars on
the side of the Railroad at the crossiig
near White Oak and other crossings
has been reported as a nuisance, and
