that Lady Campbell had miscariied.
Ihe invention was made to conceal the

witness he was endeavoring to obtain
all the information he potsibly could
gainst his wife in order to sue her for
divorce, and had subsequently told
witness i hat he had failed t) obtain
any. Mr. Bns?ell, plaintiff's counsel,

Mr. Robert BannatyneFirlay.Q. 0.,
opened the case for the defense. He
p.id it afforded inexpressible relief to
Lord Colin Cmpb ill to have an op
portnni'y todtf.nd himself in open
court tioui ine grots and cruel imnu
tat ions which had been put upon him,
and from the charge of adu tery

the nature cf the defendant's ailment

her daughter wps willing to merely act

by a physician, who said it wps desira

marriage relationship with the plaint

the Duke of Mar.borongb, who had
been corresponding with her and
was often seen in Lady Camp
bells company, visited Leigh Court
at the sme time she did, and their
bedrooms therein adjoined. Doubt
less, Mr. Finlay contended, the Duke
of Marlborough and Lsdy Campbell at
this time were criminally intimate, if
they bad not been before. After this
Lidy Campbell went to Paris, and on
thia journey she was chaperoned by
Lady Miles. Tbey remained in Paris
one month, the Duke of Marlborough
being there also. When Lady Camp
bell returnedlfrom Paris she sent her
ma d to Nwitseriand, evidently, the
lawyer said, because the miild knew
too much. That maid would be called
by the defence, and would test fy. On
the 12th of Augu't Lady Campbell
went to tne Buioset Hotel and re
mained there with the Duke ol Marl
borough until the following Monday.
Gen. Batter visited Lady Campbell
daring her bu-band's absence, and
used to remiiia with her as long as
tnree conrs at a time, unce, during
one of these interviews, some one
called to sse Lady Campbell. 8be

and during this time Lidy Campbell
went to and irom London and com
mi'ted adultery with Dr. Bird. Lord
Colin Campbell then knew nothing
about bis wife s bad conduct, but she
had a gni ty conscience, and she got
Holioiior Lfcwis to write a letter charg

he raoght it by both wings and
slammed it to tbe ground and killed
it. A few nights sgi Mr. Watt Dar
nell while riding heard tbe rattling of
the chain that has since come loose
from tbe trap, and not seeing any ob
ject he put spurs to his horss and was
soon at home, declaring that the devil
was loose. Mr. N. Darnell wanted to
take the trap home, but Capt Hos
kins told bim if be took the trap he
could take the owl to. That the pres
ence of the trap on the owl's foot ver
ified the statement kt b. w,

Lexington (Miss.) Bulletin: Mr.
Joseph Young cangat an owl in a
steel trap Saturday night tbat meas
ured four and a half leet from tip to
tip. X Y Z in Prentiu Pleader.
Mr. B. Z. Darnell aayj be ret a trap
for sn owl, snd fastened a email chain
to tbe trap, the other end being at
tached to eome nncnt potato vines;
willing to allow this source of support
which bad been intrusted to their care
to be kjared. And in this dilemma
tber aooealed to the City Council.
aod I know tbat tbe Council deba'ed
the question long and seriously,
They did not carslessly, as our
editor pus it, "suspend all hu
man and divine law." Tbey were
greatly troubled about it, and they
locked careiuiiy a', tne matter iotn an
paints of view. , The cot. on merchan's
had said to thim. 'Qiva as snthority
to protect our customers tbis t me and
another year, we assure ?ou, we will
not be caoiiht napping." Aod after
cprtful cods deration the Council saw
no other honest course to pure ue, and
our mercbai.ts are keeping tntirprorn-
ue. I am told mat, one nrm nas pur
chased twelve ac es in the southern
part of the city and another a large
tract in tbe northern, and they are
building immense sheds as fast as
workmen can put them up.
la conclu lou, i want to enter xy
serious protett against a Labit into
which The Issue has fallen, namely.
that of boldiug up the
free thinker to its read
of wholesale lniquii
rttbs, out of whom no
blv come.
I am not an model contrariwise, I
am a church membsr but I steadfast
ly bold to tbe right to do my own
tbiLkirg. and I hold with equal tenac
ity to the tight of every other man or
woman to do his or hers. And I do
protest e gainst calling a man oppro
btious names, or imDiigning his mo
tives beciues be doesn't think as you
do about re igion or anyhingeUe. He
has as good a right to his opinion as
you have to yours.
Moreover, if The Iuue is conducted
in tbe interest of any sys'em cf theol
ogy, Itt it say so; and let it seek to
convince and convert lonasis and
freethinkers, by tbe "pare and peace
able" methods inculcated by the Di
vine Teacher. But it has been my
impression that it was edited solely in
tbe interest of temperance and prohi
bition, and if my imprtsiion is correct
I would respectfully submit that it
might better promote the interest and
further the progress of i's special ob
ject by sticking tc its text
We are fighting for prohibition;
why not ta'k about it? It appears to
me we shall have quite enongb on our
hands if we bring tbat about, without
undertaking to regulats all the publlo
acta and tbe piivate opinions of tbe
nation. Tbis is a garment a world too
wide for our proportions. Lt us lay
it aaida, brother, and try one thing at
a t me. Lastly, brethren, I want it
understood that I write this only
under "my own sign and seal." Al
though I am the recognised leader ot
tbe White Ribb joa of Tennessee, I do
not speak for them on thia occasion,
and I would not speak at all but for
the fact that my name stands at tbe
head of one cf the departments. Tbat
being eo, I claim the right to "say my
say" in tbess columns, at tbe same
time distinctly stating tbat lor tbe
opinions herein expressed nobody is
responsible save
