We think, that the Directors have shown good judgment in employing the present Superintendent and Matron, who are the right persons in the right pluce, as they are kind and attentive to the seventy-three inmates whom they have iu their charge, and have them all un der their control, so that the house is a pleasant place to visit.

The second trial of Hanson L. Tenn, of Georgetown, for shooting Adam Tedrow in this plsoe in July, 1880, occupied the whole of last week. It will be remembered that the first trial at the last term of Court re sulted In a disagreement of the jury. The most notable feature of the second trial was the appearance on the witness stand of Tedrow, who failed to appear at the first trial. His Testimony bore very strong against Penn, and no doubt had great weight with the jury, although some new evidence for the defendant was introduced tnnding to strengthen bis plea of self de fense. The Prosecuting Attorney, Mr. Worley, was assisted by H. A. Favey, Esq., who conducted the case for the State with marked ability. Messrs. StoAne, Newby A Morrow. T. P. Vauce and W. W. Young, of Georgetown, appeared for the defendant. The case was given to the jury at 5 o'clock Saturday evening, and they returned a ver dict of assault and battery about 11 o'clock Sunday morning. It is understood that they stood ten for conviction on the first count of the iudictment, shooting with in tent to wound, and two for acquittal, but finally compromised on assault and battery. This saves Penu from the penitentiary but subjects him to a flue at the discretion of the Court and imprisonment in the county jail not exceeding six mouths. He did not wait however to receive sentence but on Sunday evening forfeited his bail and left for parts unknown, ungratefully Ieaviug his counsel and other parties minus for bor rowed money. The result of the trial has been a severe lesson to Penn, as in addition to the j2,000 paid Tedrow his fine, costs, counsel fees aud other expenses will prob ably amount to $3,000 or $4,000 more and leave him almost peuuiless. Truly "the way of the transgressor is hard." MARRIAGE BELLS. Ervin—Wickerham. SINKING SPRINGS, March 9, 1885. J. R. Ervin and Minnie M. Wickerham were married by Rev.
