So James Green thinks, since he found a silver watch ia a manure pile, which he was hauling to H. B. Pershing's garden, from the alley back of Thompson's Livery 8table a few days ago. The watch was of American manufacture, and from the superior mechanism of the case was un hurt, although exposed to the inclement weather of perhaps more than one winter. He was offered $25 for the watch ; but prefero to keep it A wretch by the name of Wm. Cluck, killed his wife by shooting her five times ou Tuesday last, in Indianapolis.

" Last week we published a very inter esting article, partly prose, and partly not, from the flowing pen of Col.

The Col. had not room enough in his very economically arranged store for all his goods ; and was obliged to procure storage elsewhere. New Millinery Store.

Thornburg in Plymouth, a little over two years ago, came off at South Bend last wed;. , He was found guilty and sentenced i the Penitentiary for six vears. Most of our readers remember the cir cumstances of the killing of Thornburg; but as they are not known to all, we give the following brief account. In January 18.0, in the night, there was aterrible fight by drunken men in Haslingers drinking saloon, in Plymouth. John W. Thorn burg, a school teacher, who was an excel lent teacher and a peaceable man when so ber, was in the fight. He had been drink- i ng fur several days. The next morning after the fight Thornburg was found in Oglesbee's mill yard, insensible and terri bly bruised. He lived in an unconscious state about two days, when he died. Conners, Kreyer, and Chas Hasliuger were jointly indicted for the murder. Haslingjr was tried by a jury who failed to find a verdict, for tiie reason that after the trial had been two or three dsys in progress, two of the jurors became sick aud unable to hear the whole of the evi dence. But the evidence brought out w as of such a character as to convince the Prosecuting Attorney that he could not be convicted, and the case as to him was non yenned. Kreyer' s case has never come to a trial, aud we understand he is now under bonds for his appearance for trial. Conner's case came up at the Feb ruary term of the Marshall Circuit Court in 1872, when he was tried by a julry, found guilty, and his punishment assessed at nine years confinement in the peniten tiary ; but sentence was not pronounced. A new trial was granted by the judge, and the case was continued to a special term in May following, when it was continued to the regular term in August. It was again continued to the February term, 1872, a charge of venue was granted and the case sent to St. Joseph county, with the result above stated. tlUrennnrottis.
