Cl’RIOL'S LAW CASE.
The public will recollect a somewhat re
markable law case which occupied the courts
of Cincinnati some time, growing out ot' an
attack by Dr. Fisher W. Ames upon James
C. Hall, es»{., ot Cincinnati. Ames was in
dicted for shooting with intent to kill, and he
was very near killing. An indictment was
found, and on trial Arnes was defended by
Messrs. Johnson and Carroll. It is admitted
that the case was a pretty hard one, and, as
the prejudice against Ames, was very great
for some time, his friends were very much
gratified at his acquittal on the trial. Alter
this was over, Dr. Ames refused to pay the
fee demanded by his counsel—$2,UUO—and
they brought a suit against him, the trial of
which took place hist week. Several gentle
men were, present to testify to the reasona
bleness of the fee. None of the legal mem
bers of the bar called for the plaintiffs fix
ed the amount below $2,000, aud $2,500 to
*5,000 were named by some of them; the lat
ter sum in consideration of the newspaper
abuse which a lawyer receives. flhe defen
dants were very moderate in the estimate ol
their own services, coming down as low as
*1,000; but the jury thought they did not
know much about it, and gave a verdict ot
.*2,250.
COFFEE.
Asparagus is waxing jiotent enough to
threaten a usurpation of breakfastdom. Hear
what experimental philosophy pronounces on
the coming revolution:
“Leibig (the illustrious Hermau chemist)
says that asparagus contains, in common,
with tea and coffee, a principle which he
calls ‘taurine/ and which he considers es
sential to the health of those who do nut take
strong exercise. Taking the hint from lia
ron Liebig, a writer in the London Harde
ner’s Chronicle was led to test asparagus as
as a substitute for coffee. He says: “The
young shoots I first prepared .were not agree
able, having an alkaline taste. 1 then tried
.i • i _ rut_ __*.,1 .....I
nil’ nje* PtXUS. Allege JWOi'U.u uuu ^ivuuo
make a lull flavored coffee, not easily distin
guished from line Mucha.” The seeds are
easily freed from the berries by drying them
in a cool oven, and then rubbing them on a
sieve. In good soils asparagus yields
seeds abundantly; and if they are charged
with ‘taurine/and identical with seeds of the
Coffee plant, asparagus coffee may be grown
in the United States at less than half the cost
per pound of'the article now so largely im
ported. _
TIIE KEY TO THE LOCKED HEART.
“He saith to the woman give me drink.”
Thus it was that our Lord opened his way
to the women of Samaria, and so it is that
we, if we could only crush our own pride,
would find our way to the hearts ol those
to whom God has sent us to hear his word.—
“Give me to drink;” a little cold water
only I ask, or enter into the cottage for it.
Such was our Lord's humility, but such is
not ours. We stalk grandly'by the man
sions of our fellow men, and often call it an
honest independence to refuse their kindness
if not sufficiently large to excite our cupidity.
No way this of gaining love, however suc
cessful it may be in throwing a wall of ice
between you and your brother. Dr. Chal
mers never said anything more true than, tfie
readiest way of getting into a man’s heart
was to go into his house.
A Scotch blacksmith gave the following
definition of metaphysics! “Twa faulk dis
pnten thegither; he that's listening disna
ken what he that's speaking about means, and
be that's speaking disna ken what he means
hitflsel’; that's metaphysics/' _
