asiigned by the court to ropresent the
State in tbe murder trial of State
agalnst Bartholomew Croto, thatCro
to ia insane, and probably was in
that condition when he shot Peter Vor
ron at East Montpelier September 7.
Tho case agalnst Croto was to have
be-.n tried at the Septomber term of
Washington county court but as tho
defence was insanlty tho State wished
to tako no chances in the matter,
and at tho request of the stato'i attor-
ney, Croto two months ogo, was com-
mltted to the asylum for observation
