THE COt RT DENIES TOE TETlTION 10 K TUB
SALE OF TUB CENTRAL AND VERMONT AND
Tbo decision of the Supreme Court of Ver
mont, in tho matter of the Central and Ver
mont and Canada roads, was rendered at
Monipclier, on the 30th int. The court
denies tho prayer of the petitioners
for the sale of the Vermont Central and
Vermont and Canada railroads, on tho
ground that no power rests in tho 3ourt to
order such salo in the present form of
application. The court also decided that
the decree of 1804 changed the character of
the receivership from that appointed by the
court undor the decree of 1861, to a busi
ness management under an agreement of
all the parties, and whatever has been done
under tbe various decrees of the court since
that date has been done as with the consent
and approbation of tho parties themselves,
and that all the parties were in subjection
to it. mong other things, it is held that
the title of the Vermont and Canada, nnd
the mortgage bondholders of tho Vermont
Central is still paramount, except so far
as modified by express consents, and that the
trust debt is not a judicial lien. The Rut
land road is left in the position claimed by
its counsel. The decit-ion was unanimous.

a "confidential" statement of tbe kind
was permitted to be given to tbe public docs
not appear: "My own partial examination
thus far made, although not as yet reveal
ing poison, nevertheless indicates. that the
stomach had been subject to an irritant
poison, and although l,of course, wish to
maintain an unprejudiced mind, I can say
this much, confidentially : I should not be
surprised at finding poison, and, indeed, ex
pect to find it." Tbe correspondent adds:
ProfesMr Collier states that poison adminis
tered in just sufficient quantity to cauce
death, remains in tho stomach long enough
to perfuni its work, and tben pasesifTinto
tbe other parts of tbe body, chiefly the
liver; and that if more than enough is ad
ministered, what is needed remains, while
the surplus paos into the liver. He claim
that poison may yet be discovered in some
other organ than be stomach. Sjmc
of tbe best legal Ulent of tbe Stita has been
retained on both sides. Tbe prosecution
will be represented by State's Attorney G. W.

Moodt and the Catholic Btsuor. hen
Mr. Moody was superintendent of a Mi-sion
Sunda-scbool in tho outskirts ol Ch cago,
he was much annoyed by the repeated
breaking of the windows of bis prayer-
room, by some boys whoso parents were
Catholics. Moody determined U strike at
tho root of the matter, and accordingly
went fo Bishop Duggan, the Roman Catho
lic bishop of Chicago, and laid the matter
before him. He told the Bibop that he
was trjmg to do good in a part of tbe city
which everybody else had neglected, and
that it was a shamo that members of the
Bishop's church should break tbe windows
bis school room, lbe noianes- ol trie
man delighted the Bishop, who promi-cd
that the lambs of his fljck should there
after be duly restrained. Moody, thus en
couraged, went on to say that ho often
came upon sick people who were Ca'holic;
that he would ltd gtal to relieve tnetn ana
pray with them; but they were so sus
picious of him they would hardly allow
bim to come ccttr them. Now if the Bishop
would ive him a good word to these peo
plo, it would help him amazingly in his
work ol charity.
Such a rtqucst lrom a heretical ITOtcs-
tant was probably never before made of a
Catholic Bishop But the Bishop kindly
replied that he should bo most happy to
give the rrcommcDdation if Mr. Moody
would only join the Catholic church, tell
ing him at the same time tbat he scmcd to
be too good a man to bo a heretic.
I am alraid tbat would hisder mo in.my
work among the Protestants,1' said Moody.
INot at all, ' answered tbo liishop.
"W hat ! Do ou mean to say that I could
go to the prajcr-mceting and pray with all
kinds ol Lhn-tian people. lJapti'-ts. Uetnu-
di-is. Prcsbjtenans altogether as 1 do
Oh, yes." replied the Bihop. If it wero
necessary juu might do that."
'So then, Protestants and Catholics can
pray together, can they?"
'Well. Bishop, no man wants to belong to
tho true church more than I do. 1 wish
you would pray for mo right here, that God
would show un; His true church, and mlp
me to be a worthy member of it.'
The Bishop could not reluse, so they
kneeled down together, and the Bi-hop
prayed very lovingly for tbe heretic; and
when he had finished the heretic began to
pray for the Bishop.
rrom that day io tbe day ot his death.
Bishop Dugean and Mr. Moody were jiood
friends. 'lh Bi-hop. it i- notdless to say,
made no progress in converting him ; but
tbe breaking ot his school-room windows
was stopped ; and it only Moody had joined
tho church of Rome, there is no telling to
hat hich dignities he might have come.

One of the Norwich steamers had struck.
and, while the passengers were hurritdty
making preparations tori heir safety, a fat
old Dutchman seized a Iilc-prescrvtT, and
trying it on, began to fill it, blowing till
ho was red in tbo faco with bis cilorts.
Hallo, said a bwaudtr. "nou can t till
ttiat thing ; .there's a big hole in it.' A
blank look camo over the Dutchman's face.
