The following anecdoto is sent by a Keutucky correapondent, who says it is tho exact truth: "A young man who had not found it convonicnt to pay a tailor's bill was brought up on a creditor's bill by tho cruol tailor before a very kind-hearted vico chancellor, who liked the youth. He wns hnndsomely dressed nnd woro a costly dlamond stud in his ehirt bosom, but declared under oath that he had no property except his wearing ap parel. The tailor's lawyor clalmed that n diamond stud wns not nn article of exempt appnrel and asked for its sur render, but tho judgo ruled that tho dlamond button hold tbe pnrts of tho shlrt together and its removnl would lond to- indccent exposure of tho por son. Then tho lawyor urged thnt tho shlrt wns of n new kind which buttoned in tho back, but tbo judgo mot this by snying: 'Tho presumption of the lnw is thnt sbirts button in front, nnd tho court does not judicinlly know thnt shirts ever button in tho bnck. Tho court will not rcquiro tho dofcndant to submit to nn cxnmiuntlon to rebut tho presumption.'
