An Artxona Judp ■ Ssvorely Canaures a Jury. Tucson, A. T., Nov. 10.—A special from bolowville says: The first session of the court iu Graham county, being held by Judge Sheldon, several crimin als for murder have been acquitted. The ease of Giruian ('have *, on two indict ments 1er in uni, r, bus just been tried. One in m tun nt charged him with mur dering 1 nez 1'ri'zeiL*, the other with mm dcring his wife. Both murders were committed at the same time iu the house of the defendant, and iu the presence of J two little children of the accused. The first verdict wag manslaughter. The in dictment for killing the. wife wus next tried, and resulted iu a similar verdict. Ibis was too much for Judge Sheldon's sense of justice and he delivered to that jury the following: "Gentlemen of the jury—Your labors jit this ease, with the rendition of your Verdict, are closed, but tile Court has u furtliei duty to perforin, which it cannot avoid. It is a duty which the Court owes, not ouly to itself, but to the people of this county. While the merits of thi* ease wi re under considération the Court would express uu opinion upon the evi dence, but now it is ut liberty to speak, aud while it is an unpleasant task, it nev ertheless becomes the plain and sacred duty of the Court to express iu clear and explicit terms its profound astouishmuit at the rendition of such a verdict; a ver dict so utteily at variance with all the laets in the cav. and the laws which govern them. Such verdicts, gentlemen, are a mockery of law and a travesty up on justice, and you will render trials by jury « farce by such verdicts«. Genflo ne n, you assume the respon-ibility for the E rrible e, ndition of affairs which ex month i-ts to-day in Graham county, making it, as it i*, a foul blot upon tlie map of Ari zona, and a disgrace to the civilization of the age. You, by this verdict, have de prived every uian of the eon-tirutional right of protection. You have sanctioned disorder and have welcomed anarchy, and wi re it not for the pr vs of business be fore the court, and the great expui.se whi'-h would be incurred by the iuipan nelling of a le w jury, l would immediate ly dismiss you from the further eon-id. r ation of any matters before the Court. Gentlemen of the jury, you are discharg ed, and I only regret that 1 cannot dis charge you for the t. mo" There i* great excitem« nt here among the roughs on account of Sheldon's re buke.

Une very important use of literature to the gcnerul reader is to restore the bal ance which a regular daily occupation tends to disturb. It is udvisable for every oue to make his private reading contribute to the unused faculties of his mind. Bue* iuess of every kiud employs certain pow* ers, aud leaves others comparatively dor mant, aud these last may be stimulated by a wise use of leisure hours, and ox pecially iu the choice we make of tbo bouks we read. To follow out tbe -"»» line of thought in which we have been engaged all day must make us one-sided and narrow, yet some persons persist In this course until, by long habit, they are unable to enjoy anything else. Prescrib ed courses of reading are seldom nurntne ful when the time is limited. There mut bo freedom of the choice for different minds and different tastes. Though thn desultory reading of whatever chance may throw in our way is to be especially avoided, aud still more that passive recep tion of the printed words in which the mind makes an exertion, and is merely luxuriously iudolent, there must yot be • co-operating power of sympathy in -the reader to make his reading valuable to him. IN ithout this tho wisest book in the world will uot increase his wisdom, nor the purent and sweetest make his character a whit purer or sweeter. It is whatever acis most effectively for good upon him, to quicken his faculties, to arouse his activities, to awaken his best aspirations, and to touch responsive cords within him, that ho should choose for bis silent friends, rather than any ever so well defined course laid down by another. To discover what these are he must not merely yield to the pleasure of passivo impressions, hut study the reaction of his own mind and the effect on his own char acter. Though this may he at first labor ious and difficult from want of habit, it is the true secret of extracting the real value and the fullest happiness from the literature of our owu language.— Phila^ iMjihia LcJget. ADMISSION OP WASHINGTON,. "f he unnual message of the Governor ol \\ asbington Territory is generally an interesting document, because it gives • summary of tho resources of that Terri tmy. which is now about to ask admission into the union. There is a strong current ol immigration setting in that direction, and tho current has b a n considerably in creased by the great facilities created by (lie completion of (ho Northern l'acifio railroad. There are 13,000 Indians in. Washington Territory, who occupy fif teen reservations, which contain over 7,000,000 acres of th - best agricultural land. 'I he population has for some timo bri o above the limits required for the admission of a State into the union, and it is prob, dd • that at the next session of Congress, Washington Territory will bff come a State." '1 here is no doubt of the t ight to Statehood of the Territory, By every honest standard—that of intelli 2 i; nee, growth, wealth, population, each, d ull ho, rk loudly ut the doors of Con-. gresi fur .......gnition. Failure to give heed to these demands will retard tho do vclopmcut of the future State, and for « longer time continue the disadvantageous relations so long eudufed. But, notwith-. standing these indisputable facts, there is, lb" smallest likelihood of admission. The Democratic complexion of Congress un fortunntely carries away the probability of favorable considérât i a <jf the claims of Washington Territory to admission. Rubrical necessity rarely takes account of public utility, except a? it subserve^, its ends.— Bulletin. THE WHEAT BLOCKADE.
