BY GEO. MCDONALD. A 111 lie bird iat on lie rdgc of her neat 1 Hrr yellow-bkMka ali'pttotind at tup; That day "lie bad lirr very beat, " And had lilledevery nse of tticlrllllle rroju. fllie bad flllrd her own Just orrr full, ' And hence the wri feeling little dull.' "Ohdcnrt" she algbcd, as she at wttb lier bind Bunk In her chest, and no neck at all, While bei imp aluck out like a IcHllirr bed Turned Inside out, nnd rnlher small, 'Wlnit sIihII I dii If tlilnirs. don't rcfiiimt I don't know where tlien-' a single worm. I've bad twenly to-day and the children fira rnch, Brsitlfs a few files and tome very fnt spiders; No one will sny 1 don'l do as I preach I'm one of the bvsi of bird providers ; Hut where's the uaef we want a slorm I don't know where there's a sinjele worm." "There's Ave tn my crop," said a wee, wee bird, Which woke at the voice of his mother's I 'mil "I know where there's Ave," and with the word IT. . 1 , t . t a iie mi-Ken in 111s neaii, ana went on again. "The folly of childhood," sighed his mother, "Has always been my especinl bother." The yellow-beaks they slept on nnd on They never bud beard of the bogy to-morrow ; And the mo I her snt outside, making her moan, She'll soon have to beg, or steal or borrow ; For she never can lell the night before Where she can find one red worm more. The fact, as I say, was, she'd had loo many ; She couldn't sleep, und she called it virtue, Mother fort'sight, ahVcilon, any Nome you nuiy call it Hint will not hurl you. So it was lute eru she tucked her head in : And she slept so lute It wits almost a sin. But the little fellow who knew of five, Nor troubled bis head about any more, Woke, very nrly, U-lt quite alive, ' And wanted a aixth lo add to his store; He pushed his mother, the irreedv elf. Then thought be hud better try lor himself. When bis mother awoke and bad. rubbed her eyes. Feeling less like a bird and mors like a mole, She saw him limey with what surprise Draifxini; a h 11 ire worm out of a hole I 'Twas of tills same hero lbs proverb took form ; 'Tis the early bird that catches the worm. Fisk and Sickles. The followiiifl storv is related W Mr. Crouiicli of n correspondence between risk and hickles, at the oiubieuk of the p raiico-l Tussian. war : Fisk, hearing that Jacques Offenbach, the composer of tlio botiffe operas, was exiled from Paris to Madrid by the Republican, made up his mind that Offenbach would make a steriiir lender of orchestra at the iirand Opera. With characteristic impudence he telegraphed nearly as follows : 'D. K. Sickles, Uulted Bute Minister, Madrid, Spain ! If OftV ubach is in Madrid secure him at any price." 1 Fisk " General Sickles was dining with Mar shal Prim and Serrano at tliu table of a high dignitary, and he was surprised early in the evening to receive a sealed dinpatcli, borne upon a silver salver, nnd .presented in the presence of his friends. (IVehaps , (his story was related by Sickles to iliow his importance, and is wild and baseless.) General Sickles knew that the diplomatic formula allowed a minister to open a dispatch anywhere, so he merely bowed to the host, aud broke imjeai. - .. ; r . ( j . , , , ? jr-r?(it 'was lis surprise. The singohir message was signed Fisk, but, knowing little ol Fisk, he concluded it was a mis take for Fish Hamilton Fish, Secretary of Slate. "Gentlemen," said Sickles, "there ap pears lo be something peremptory in this dispatch from my . Government, I beg yoil lo excuse mo for a lime." . . , Repairing to his office, Sickles and his Secretary put their heads together. "Who was Oftbnbnch ? What did Fish, the great Fish successor, but not replacer of Seward want with Offenbach ? Suddenly an American dropped in. "Why," said he, "that is Jim Fisk, the showman. He wants Offenbaah lor his show. Perhaps to lead his orchestra." Sickles felt chagrined enough to reply to Fisk that next he would want the Unit ed States Minister to sleet a ballet troupe tor him ; hut somebody intimated that Fisk might have more discriminating reason for fto. ' So Offenbach was huntod up ; but he declined to go. Sickles; lived to see the Opera House he was offered a commission tor, captured from Fink's surviving part ner, Jay Gould a mau who never com pensated his age for the nuisance of hi in sult, by cither a joke, an idiosyncrasy or a kinuness. Supper. Nothing makes a tea-table bo oozy as a bubbling kettle. 1 he only wonder is that any one shnulddispense with the luxury. What with its shining copper sides reflect ing your smile, its glaring flame, gas-fed or alcohol-fed, its hiss of blue steam, its homelike singing, everything about it is suggestive' and delightful. And what good lea it makes when all tho old-fashioned rules are observed : tho hot cups, the drop ' in" each ' saucer, the freshly scalded pot, the water caught at the happy moment of boiling, the judicious steeping liver! tha. lamp ( Ob ! there is nothing like it. No Irish liid.ly ever finds the knay-k. "Catch people making good lea" out 'ot tk'eKsom. where they are going to' drjnk It themselves," says CJirlei;U(jeJ. And, hesj rigtit. And then it the kitchen fire is low or the cook out or sulky, the same spirit lamp or feas jet can bo made to do further duty. J? or, in spite ot the laws of health, people will sometimes grow tired ot sweetmeats, knd they demand a morsel of something savory with their bread aud butter and what can be better than a bright tin, chafing dish on the' table f There -is Katie or Louisa, who will consider k fnu to stir the scrambled egg carefully ahoot the shining dish, while mamma pours tea, or to thicken tho cream for dipped toast, or frinids the crisp slioes of dried beef with a little butler. And small hungry ooses all around will sniff the appetising gale, aod petitions will be put io by small voice for a little bit, "just a little tiny bit." off nana's plots Ar.d the cor.y, anil, so to speak picnic character of the performance will make the wholemeal pleasant and cheery. The material for supper should not Ire too sweet nor to hesvy. Preserves and cake are nice in their way, but they should be treats raiher than matter ot course. Fresh fruit, or fruit "imply cooked, mush, farina, wheuten gi its, I oast, cold bread, graled cheese, radishes, cress, simple and unexciting dishes of all kinds, are in order. lioiled ham grated fine is a nice relish for bread nnd butter, or a little halibut. A light meal of thi kind is apt to be followed by a pleasant even ing: and then it means something when, lighting our bedroom caudles and ex changing kNsps, we prepaie to go up stairs and wish each other "Good i.ight. A young man, nineteen years of age,bv the circumstances of the late war made a constant companion of his father far from home, said to a mutual friend : "The more I become acquainted with my father the better I like him. When a boy at home,! thought he was a nice man, but I did'nt know him much. This father had striven to be useful and and to do good as he had opportunity. Hut eight een years had passed, and his son had been as yet only favorably im pressed with his father's! character. He was yet to know him. The stream of kind ness and charity for human want and woe,and sympathy for others in trial, hud watered and made fruitful with happy experiences other vineyards, but the young and tender plants in his own home had been but little watered. The depths of that fountain were yet to bo sounded; and the full and earnest love ol a father's heart was yet lobe learii ;d experimentally This came of the father,s thottghtlers ness. It was the lesult ot bis lot gel ful ness ot prior claims upon bis attention. But it was a thoughtfulness and forget fulness inexcusable, unless to neglect a known duty for a supposed one would justify them. The Yonngstown Iteyister of the 4th insl. has the following : " A young man living in Austintown, by the nameotMc- fiweu, a nephew of T. It. McEwen of this city, on Friday evening wat looking at a gun which he was intending to purchase, and supposing that it was not loaded, placed his mouth over the mu..le to blow through the barrel. While in this position, the gun went off, and the enure charge was lodged in his mouih. The tongue, palate and teeth were almost entirely destroyed, but, strange to sny, he was not killed. It seems iiicompre hei.sible that he could be injured in that way, without receiving the entire load in his brain, lint, by some remarkable chance, the shot lodged elsewhere. The wounds were dressed, and at last acounts the patient was doing much better than could be expected." Experiences of a Barrister. Something more than half a century ago, a person, in going along liolburn, might have seen, near the corner of one the thoroughfares which diverge to wards KushcH Square, the respectable looking slop of a glover and haberdash er named James Harvey, a man general ly esteemed by his neighbors, aud who was usually considered we'l to do in the world. Like many Loudon tradesmen, Harvey was originally from the country. He had come up to town when a poor lad, lo push his fortune, aud by dint of steadiness and civility, and a small prop erty left him by a distant relalijn, he had been able to get into business on his own account, and to attain that most im portant element in London a "connec tion." Shortly after selling up in the world, he married a young woman from his native town, to whom he had been engaged ever since his school-days ; and at the time our uaralive commences, he was the father of three children. James Harvey's establishment was one ot the best frequented ot its class in the street. You could never pass with out seeing customers going in or out. There was evidently not a little business going forward. But although, to all ap pearance, a flourishing concern, the pro prietor of the establishment was surpris ed to find that he was always in piuch ed circumstances. No matter what was the amount of business transacted over the counter, he never got any richer. At the period referred to, shopkeepiug had not attained that degrte of organi sation, with respect to counter-men and cashiers, which now distinguishes the great houses of trade. The primitive was not yet superseded. This was the weak point in Harvey's arrangements. and not to make a needless number of words about it, the poor man was regu larly robbed by a shop-man, whose dex terity in pitching a guinea into the drawer, so as to make it jump, unseen, with a jerk into his hand, was worthy of Herr Dobler, or any other master of the sublime art of jugglery. Good-natured and unsuspicious, per haps also not sufficiently vigilant, Har vey was long in discovering how he was pillaged. (Jartwright, the name of the person who was preying on his employ er, was not a young roan. Ho was be tween forty and filty ysars of age, aud had been in various situations, :w here he had alwavs given satisfaction, except ou the score ot being .somewhat cay and somewhat irritable,'', lVi9tclf,lie;wis a mau ot loose habits, and for years his extravagance liad been' paid lor by prfti). erty clandestinely abstracted from 'his too-confiding master. Slow to believe in the reality of such wickedness, Mr. Harvey could with difficulty entertain the suspicion which began lo dawn ou bis mind. At length all doubt was at an end. He detected Cart w right iu the very act of carrying off goods lo a con siderable amount. The mau was tried at the Old Bailey for the offeuce ; but through a techuical informality iu the indictment, acquitted. Unable to tiud employment, with a character gone, the liberated thief be came savage, .revengeful and desperate. Instead of imputing his fall lo his own irregularities, he considered hid late un fortuuate employer aa the cause of Lit ruin ; and now he bent all the enertries of his dark nature to destroy the repu tation of the man whom he had ln;rsy. ed and plundered. Ol all the being self-delivered to Hie rule of unscrupulous malignity, with whom it ha been my fate to come professionally in contact, I never knew one so utterly fiendish an this discomfited pilferer. 1-renzied with his imaginary w rongs, he formed the de termination to labor, even if it were for years, to ruin hi victim. Nothing short of death should divert him from this darling object of his existence. Animated by these diabolical passions, Cartwright proceeded to bis work. Harvey, he had a good reason lo know, was in debt to persons who had made hi-ii advances; and by means of artfully concocted anonymous letters, evidently written by some one conversant with the matters on which he wrote, he succeeded in alarming the haberdasher's creditors. The consequences were demands ol im mediate payment, and, in spite of the debtor's explanations and promise, writs, heavy law expenses, ruinous sncri flees, and ultimate bankruptcy. It may seem almost loo marvelous lor belief, but the story of this lerriblo revenge and its conscqunces is no fiction. liv ery incident in my narative is true, and the whole may be found in hard outline in the records of the courts with which a few years ago I was familiar. The humiliated and distressed feelings of Harvey and his family may be left to the imagination. When he found him self a ruined man, I dare say his mental sufferings were sufficiently acute. Yet he did not sit down in dispair. To re establish himself in business in England appeared hopeless; but America pre sen ted itself as a scene where industry might nnd a rewara ; and by the kind ness of some friends, he was enabled to make preparations to emigrate with his wile aud children. Towards the end of February he q. lilted Loudon for one of the great seaports, where he was to em bark for Boston. On arriving there M'ith his family, Mr. Harvey took up his abode at a principal hotel. This, iu a man of straightened means, was doubt less imprudent ; but he nf'lerwards at tempted to explaiy the circumstance by saying, that as the ship i:l whhh he had engaged his passage was to sail on the day alter his arrival, he had piel'erred incurring a slight additional expense rather than that his wife who was now, with failing spirits, nursing an it. taut should be exposed to coarse associations and personal discomfort. In the expecta tion, however, of being only one night in the hotel, Harvey was unfonuiiaiely disappointed. Ship-masters, especially ihoso commanding emigrant vessels, were then, as now, habitual promise brenkers ; and although each succeeding sun was to light them on their way, it was fully a fortnight before the ship stoo dout to sea. By that time a second and more dire reverse hnd occurred in the fortunes of the luckless Harvey. Cartwriirht, whose appetite for ven geance was but whetted by his first suc cess, had never lost sight of the move ments of his victim ; and now he had followed him to the place of his embark ation, with an eager but undefined pur pose ot working him some further and more deadly mischief. Stealthily he hovered about the house which sheltered the unconscious object of his malicious hate, plotting, as he afterwards confess ed, the wildest schemes for satiating his revenge. Several times he made excuses for calling at the hotel, in the hope of observing the nature of tho premises, taking care, however, lo avoid being seen by Mr. Harvey or his family. A fortnight passed away, and the day of the departure of the emigrants arrived without the slghlest opportunity occur ring for the gratification of his purposes. The ship was leaving her berth; most ot the passengers were on board ; Mrs. Harvey and the children, with nearly the whole of the luggage, were already safely in the vessel; Mr. Harvey only remained on shore to purchase some trifling article, aud to settle his bill at the hotel on removing his last trunk. Cartwright had tracked him all day ; he could not attack hiui in the struct ; and he finally followed him to the hotel, in order to wreak his vengeance on him in his private appartment, of the situation ol which he had informed himself. Harvey entered the hotel first, and be fore Cartwright came up, he had gone down a passage into the bur to settle the bill which he hud incurred for the last two days. Not aware of this circum stance, Cartwright, in the bustle which prevailed, went qp stairs to Mr. Harvey's bud room and parlor, in neither of which, to his surprise, did he find the occupant, and he turned away discomfited. Pass ing along toward the chief staircase, he perceived a room of which the door was open, and that on the table there lay a gold watch aud appendages. Nobody was in the apartment ; the gentleman who occuprcd it had only a moment be fore gone to his bed-chamber for a brief space. Quick as lightning a diabolical thought.flashed through the brain ot the villain, who had been baftledin his orig inal intentions. He recollected that he had seen a trunk iu Harvey's room, and that the keys were in the lock. An : in conceivably short space ot time served for him to seize the watch, to deposit it at the bottom of Harvey's trunk, aud lo leave the hotel by a back stair, which led bya hoft; cut Wthei Tiarbqr, The whole transaction was done nnperceived, and the wretch at least departed uuuo ticed.' '" l ' Having finished his business at the bar, (Mr.; Harvey repaired to Ids room, locked his trunk, which being ot a small and bandy siee, he mounted on his shouldor and proceeded to leave the bouse by the back stair, in order to get it as quickly as possible : to the vessel. Little recked he of the interruption whioli was to bt presented to bis depart ure. He had got as far as the foot of the atair with his burden, when he was over taken by a waiter, who declared that he was coing to leave the house clandes tinely without settling accounts. It is proper to mention that Mr. Harvey had incurred the eumity ot this partioular waiter in consequence ot baying, out of j i 'i P i ' ' .; his slender resources, given him too small a gratuity on the occasion of pay ing a former bill, and not aware of the second bill being settled, the waiter was raiher glad to have an opportunity of charging him with a fraudulent design. In vain Mr. Harvey remonstrated, saying he had paid for everything. The waiter would not believe his statement, and de tained him "iil ,e should hear better about it." "Let me go, fellow; I insist upon it," said Mr. Harvey, burning with indigna tion, "I am already too late. "Not a step, t'll -I ask master it ac counts ate squared. At this moment, while the altercation was at the hottest, a terrible ringing of bells was heard, and above stairs was a loud noise of voices, and of leet running lo and Iro. A chamber-maid came hur riedly running down stair, exclaiming that some one had stolen a watch from N. 17, and that nobody ought to leave till it was found. The landlord also, moved by the hurricane w hich had been raised, msde his appearance on the spot where Harvey was interrupted in his ex it. "What on earth is all this noise about, John?" inquired the landlord ol the wai ter. "Why, sir, I thought it rather strange for any gentleman lo leave the house by the back way, carrying bis own portman teau, and so I was making a little breeze about it, (earing he had not paid his bill, when all of a sudden Sally rushes down the stairs and says as how No. 17 has missed his gold watch, and that no one should quit the hotel." ' No. 17, an old, dry-looking military gentleman, in a particularly high passion, now showed himself on the scene, utter ing terrible tin eats of legal ' proceedings against the house for the loss he had sus tained. Harvey was stupified and indignant, yet he could hardly - help smiling at the pother. What," said he, "have I to do with all this ? I have paid for every thing ; I am surely entitled to go away if I like. I.emember, that if I'lose my passage to Boston, you shall answer for it." "I very much regret detaining yon, sir," replied the keeper of the ho'lel ; "but von hear there has been a robbery committed within the last few minutes, and sis it will be proper to search every one in the house, surely yon, who are ou the point of departure, will have no ob jections to bo searched first, and "hen be at liberty to go ?" There was something so perfectly rea sonable in all this, that Harvey stepped into an adjoining parlor, and threw open his trunk for inspection, never doubting that his inuoccucc would be immediately manifest. The waiter, whose mean rapneity bad been the cause of the detention, acted as examiner. He pulled one article after another out of the trunk, and at length horror of horrors ! held up the mis sing watch with a look of triumph and scorn ! "Who pot that there ?" cried Harvey in an agony of mind better imagined than described. "Who has done me this grievous wrong ? I know nothing as to how the watch came into my trunk." No one answered this appeal. All present stood for a moment in gloomy silence. "Sir, " said the landlord to Harvey on recovering from his surprise, "I am sor ry for you. f or the sake of a miserable trifle, you hare brought ruin and dis grace upon yourself. This is a matter which concerns the honor of my house, aud cannot stop hero. However much it is against my feelings, you must go be fore a magistrate." "By all" means," added No. 17, with the importance of an injured man. "A pretty thing that one's watch is not Bale in a house like this !" "Jthn, send Boots for a constable," said the landlord. Harvey sat with his head leaning on his hand. A deadly cold perspiration trickled down his brow. His heart swelled and beat as if it would burst. What should he do ? His whole pros pects were in an instant blighted. "Oh God ! do you desert a frail and unhappy being, give me strengh to lace this new aud terrible misfortune," was a prayer he internally uttered. A little revived, he started to his leet, and addressing himself to the landlord, he said, "Take me to a magistrate instantly, and let us have this diabolical plot unraveled. I court inquiry into my character and con duct." "It is no use raying any more about it," auswered the landlord ;" here is Boots with a constable, and let us all go awav together to the nearest magistrate. Boots, carry that trunk. - John and Sal ly, you can follow us." And so the party, trunk and all, under the constable as conductor, adjoined to the house of a magistrate in an adjacent street. There the matter was so clear a case ot Mony robbery iu a dwelling' house that all protestations to the con trary, was fully com n tiled lor trial at the ensuing March assizes, theu but a few days distant. At the period at which these incidents occurred, I was a young man going on my first circuits. I had not as yet been honored with perhaps more than three or four briefs, and these only in cases so metgre ol fees, that I was compelled to study economy. Instead of takiug up my residence at an inu wnen visiting j a considerable seaport, where the court held Us sittings, l dwell in lodg ings kept by a widow lady, where, at a small expense, I could enjoy perfect quietness, free from interruption. On the evening after my arrival on the March circuit of the year 1 7 , I was Bitting iu my lodgings perusing a new work on criminal jurisprudence, when the landlady, alter tapping at tbe door, eutered my room. "I am sorry to trouble you, sir," eaid she ; "but a lady has called to see you about a very distressing law case very distressing iudeed, ana a very strange case it is too, Only, if you could ba no good at to see her r" I "Ol i - "All I know about it is this " !.'. f. Mr. Harvey. She and her1 husfiatid and" children were to sail yesterday ' for Boston. All were on board except her husband ; amfbe, ou leaving the largo hotel over the way, was taken up for robbery. Word was in the evening sent by the prisoner to his wif.j to corr. k on shore, with all her children and the, luggage ; and so she came back in the pilot boat, and was in such A stale of ' distress, that my brother, who is on tho 11 preventive service, and saw her land, took pity on her, and had her and' hof children arid things taken to a lodging over the way. As my brother know that we have a London lawyer staying here, he has advised the poer woman to It V. . .. - .1.. S .miv a, ,i, wur.ujl jrou UUOUb Hie CaSC "Well, I'll see what can be done, Please desire the lady to step in." A lady was shortly shown in. She had been pretty, and was so still, but anxiety was pictured iu ber pale court Unance. Her dress was plaiu, but not inelegant ; and altogether she bad anat and engaging appearance. ippc "Be bo good as to sit, down," said I, bowing ; "ami tell me all you would like ' lo say." " I The poor woman burst into tears; but" afterwards recovering herself, she told me pretty nearly the whole of her histo ry and that of her husband. y Lawyers have evasion to see so mnch '. duplicity, that I did not at once give as sent to the idea of Harvey Wing inno cent of the crime of which he ' stood charged. - "There is Bomelhincr perfectly i nexpli cablo in the cbp," I observf-d, "and it ' would require sitting. Your husband, I ' hope, has always borne a good, charao ter ?" "Perfectly so. He was no doubt ait' fortunate in business; but lie got his-, certificate on the first examination ; and there are many who would testify to his uprightness," and here again my client broke into tears, a.? if overwhelmed with her recollections ami prospects. ' "I think I recollect Mr. Harvey's shop," said I soothingly. "It seemed a very respectable concern ; and we must see what can be done. Keep np vour spirits ; the only fear I have arises from . the fact of Judge A being on tho ' bench. He is usually considered severe," ' and if exculpatory evidence fail, your ' husband may run the risk of being transported." A word of more terrible import, with which I was about to con clude, stuck uiiuttered iu my throat. "Have you employed an attorney V" I added. ; - - .- ,- , "No ; I have done nothing as yet, but ' apply to you, to beg of you to be tny h'jsbar.d's conusel." "WelV, that must be looked to.' I Bball speak to a local agent, lo preparo and work out the case ; and we shall ;do our utmost to get an acquital. To-raor- . row I will call on yonr husband in prison. ' Many thanks were offered by the un- fortunate lady, and she withdrew. I am not going to inflict on the reader-' a detailed account of this remarkable ' trial, wbich turned, as barristers would ' say, on a beautiful point ot circumstau- tial evidence. , j Along with the attorney, a sharp i enough person in his way, I examined! various persons at the hotel, and made . myself acquainted with the naturo of the premises. The more we investigated, , however, the more dark and mysterious . always supposing Harvey's innocence' did the whole case appear. There was not one redeeming trait in the affair, ex-' cept Harvey's previous good character ; ' and good character, by the law of Eng land, goes for nothing in opposition to facts proved to the satisfaction of ajnry.' It was likewise most unfortunate that A was to be tho presiding judge. . This man possessed great forensic ac quirements, and was of spotless private character ; but, like the majority of laws yers of that day when it was no ex traordinary thing to hang twenty men. in a morning at Newgate he was a staunch stickler for the gallows as the only effectual reformer and safeguard of the social state. At this time he was but partially recovered from a long and severe indisposition, and the traces df recent suffering were distinctly apparent on his pale and passionless features. Harvey was arraigned in due form ; the evidence was gone carefully through;' and everything, so far aa I was concern-, ed, was done that man could do. But at the time to which I refer, couuscl was not allowed to address the court on be half ol the prisoner a practice since in troduced from Scotland and conse- . quently I was allowed no opportunity' to draw the attention ot the jury to the total want of any direct evidfnoe pf the prisoner's guilt. Harvey himselfs tried to point out the unlikelihood of his being guil'y; but he was nut a man: gifed with dialectic qualities, and bin harangue fell pointless on the under standing of the twelve coinuiort-placoinv-dividual who sat in the jury box. Tho, judge finally proceeded to sunt the evi dence, and this he did emphatically against the prisoner, dwelling with much force on the suspicious circumstance ot a needy man taking up his abode at an ex pensive, fashionable hotel ; his Jurtive descent from his apartments by 'the lawk stairs ; tbe Undoubted fact of the watch being found in bis trunk ; the improba bility of any one putting it there but himself ; and the extreme likelihood that the ' robbery was effected in a few rac; ments of time by the culprit, just as ho' passed from the bar of the hotel to the room which he had occupied. "If," oaid be to the jury, iu concluding his addresa, "yon can, aflor all these circumstances, believe the prisoner to bo innocent of the crime laid to his charge, it is more than I can do. The thing stems to me' as clear as the sun at noou-day. -Tho evidence, in short, is irresistible ; and if tho just aud necessary provisious of the Uw tire not enforcod in such very Wain cases, then society will be dissolved, and security for property there will bo nqne. Gentlemenl retire and make up your ver dict." ' K Concluded next week.
