UK C.I TV It I.OC.IMjS. From Our Own Correspondent.

A case was tried in Justice Court before Esquire Bennett on Monday of this week, in which Mat. Cady was plaintiff and Jacob Bose velt defendant. The suit grew out of a trade between the parties in August, 1875, in which a flock of sheep and a pair of horses changed hands. It waa a jury trial, and judgment was rendered for plaintiff for about $140, including interest and costs. Mr. Ed.

Ho has a gallery of paintings already, which well repays a visit, not only from those who have a simple admiration for tliat which is beautiful but from those who have cultivated taste. IT is portraits are very fine and iu the collection we find excellent likenesses of JoLn Chadwick, Botsiter Hoppiu, II. C. Huftington and others.

He had been to Decatur during tho day with the same team which ran away last week, also the same car riage, and while on his way home he undertook to pass Milo Cragcr who bad stopped bis team on the bridge over tho inlet to Lake of the Woods, about a mile from Decatur. The bridge not being wide enough, the wheels of both vehicles locked and both were overturned. Duncombe's horses, which are very high spirited, ran away and broke the carriage to pieces ana tearing a nice set of harness to fragments. The team was stopped by Henry Smith, Esq., in front of bis place near Brown's Tavern and put in his barn, and wheu Mr. Duncombe came trudging along on bis way home be took one of the horses, saddled it and rode tbo remainder or the way. Duncombe was not injured, nuitbtr were the horses. A fellow, whose name is not known, came into town last week with a team and bu?gy which bo claimed a his own, and put up at Scott's livery barn, l'o all appearances he was a horse-swapper and the horsos ordinary trad ing stock. He sold the buggy to Joe Cohn, of the firm of B. Juiiu A: Co.. and then left on the railroad, since which tune nothing has been seen cr beard from him. Subsequently, Mr. Lcfler, the new livery keeper or Bangor, came into town and claimed horses and buggy as his own and took the buggy from Cohn. There was a board bill cf about four days' growth at Scott's barn due on tbo horses, and Scott pro posed to keep tbem until that was paid, but Letler refused to pay it, and finally wpnt to Paw Paw and got out a Writ of Replevin and took the horses on that. We think it would have been much mere sensible for Lefler to bavo paid tbo f 4. 00 board bill and then have taken the horses, than to have instituted a suit in tho Circuit Court to get possession of them without paying for what bis horses had eaten. February 21st, 1877. Says the Boston Tost : " People who adver tise aro smarter than those who don't : better looking, too, nine in ten." This is natural, if not logical. Advertising is an indication of Intelligence, and intelligence is one of tho lead ing elements of good looks. At all events the world believes in those who advertise, and it plants its dollar in their pockets. Such are live people: and in these live days nobody wants anything to do with any but your live men and women. Our advice to every body except in -matrimonv is to advertise. It is sure to raturn largely, and increase your repu tation as a busine-s man, make hosts of friends and add to the number of shrewd and sensible people in tbo world, of which tbors bao never vet been an overstock.

A reJ, white, and blue baJge means not to drink, swear, or use tobacco. louia and Jack son bavo organized such companies, principally of young people. A member of the Kalamazoo Reform Club was asked by a saloon keeper why he wore that red ribbon. "That little red ribbon," said Jack, with true Irish wit, " is a charm to keep snakes out of my loots." The temperance work in Pittsburgh is still going on. A dozen churches and halls are nightly tilled, and besides the thousands of drunkards who have been cured of their whisky sins and converted to Christ, many liquor sell ers have given up their vile traffic and pledge! themselves never again to engage in it. The room to the north over the First Nation al Bank has been titled up as a red rrbbon reading room, and has been supplied with magazines and papers, to which the attention of the members of tbo brigade is called.
