Smith, president of the Central Vermont railroad, came to town last Monday in the line new ohservation car reeeutly preseuted to him by I)r. Webb. The eai ig a couihiiiatinn of locomotive and InipectiOD car, cost souie 840,000, aml can run a mile lu less than a minule, at a pinch. Uuring the nhorl time the car remaiued at State v. George P. Carpenter. This re spondent was indicted for the larceny of a hand satchel, contaiuing a military dress coat and aundry tollet articles, November 25, 18!W. The state's evidence tended to show that on that date one Rudil, a cadet student of the Norwich University at North field, left Northfield in company with four or Hve other cailets on the evening express tralti- rlmf Mr Pn.1,1 vl.l. klM " 1 woia satchel which the respomlent was charged wnn sieanug; tnat wiien tne tratn reached Montpelier, while the boys were singing, playing on musical instruments, and having a general good time, the respondent boarded the car; that he sat down by the cadets and entered iuto conversation with some of them; that, soon after the train left Water bury, Rudd misscd his satchel; that, though assisted by the brakeman, he could not Qnd it; that, acting upon information received upon tlie train, he telegraphed to Sheriff Atherton at Waterbury, giving a descrip tion of the bag and of the man who was suspected of having purloined it: that the sheriff visited the hotels aml made diligent search but was nn able to get a trace of the missing artiele; that from information secured in the morn ing he went to see Mr. Clough, the lawyer, who told him he had s en Carpenter at Moutpelier depot, but that he had nothlng with him; that he saw Carpenter get ott the train at Waterbury; that Carpenter did not get out on the platfortn of the depot but on the track on the other side, and Mr. Olough had his attentiou directed towards Carpeu terandsa.v that he had a butidle of some kind in his hand; that Atherton then tried to Hnd Carpenter but coald not; that in the morning, Atherton called at Carpenter's residence and saw tracks leading away from the house, aud, following them, he saw the respondent ahead of him, but not withiu speaking distance; that a few weeks afterward the valise was returned to Ather ton by some unkuowu person aud it was re turned to its owner, who was reimbursed for his expeuses; that the value of the satchel and contents was ahout 825. In Bome mysteriims way the jury got it into their beada that the respondent was under the influenoe of liipior when the crime was cominitted. Possihly this idea arose from the statement of Mr. Dllltngham ahout the case when the inatter was first brought up in court. The jury, after lirst retiriug, came back iuto the court aud asked tho court whether if Carpenter was intoxicated at the time it would he any excuse. Judge Thompsou promptly disahused their minds of any such Impresalon, and the jury re tired. They returned again Wlthaverdlot of guilty of petty larceny, stating the value of the goods to be less tliuu seven dollars.
