THinSDAV DECEMBER 13. 1877 LATEST NEWS ITE11S: t ...... t r. ijuuiaiaiiii man married nvc tunes in eleven months, and swapped las last wife fur a shot-gun. The new iron bridge over the death chasm of Ashtabula has been opened, and trains are now running over it. The Raleigh, N. C, News asserts that a dashing young hawk swooped down on the gilt vane on the spire of Christ Church, in that city, mistaking it for a genuine rooster, and grasping it in his ta'ons, essayed to carry off the prize. Here is a brief Texas story : An Italian boy named Lally, came to this country eight years ago a poor organ-grinder. His monkey died and he hired as a sheep herder near Laredo, and by hard work got a herd of his own. He is now independently rich. Speaking of the wrecked steamer Huron, the Boston Globe of Tuesday says : In fact Capt. Ryan, just before he left Boston told a friend of the writer that he did not feel safe in going to IV ew lork in her. Another officer said he would almost as soon go to sea in a spoon as in such a coffin-ship. The higher education of women prospers at Cambridge. Some new rooms have been added to Newnham Hall, and a new house has been opened, called Norwich House, which is already full. More than sixty stu dents are thus pursuing their work under the care of the Cambridge Association. The new buildings at Girton College are also filled. A lady in Geauga county, Ohio, refused to pay her taxes because of non-representation, but one of her kind-hearted neighbors came forward and discharged the tax, sayiif, "We think a great deal of Miss E down where she is known. She is doing this from prin ciple, and I don't know but she is half right after all. I will pay the tax, and then, after I explain the matter, she will be willing to pay me, but she would never pay an officer." Those who believe that competition is the life of trade will be glad to hear that Nature has gone into the refining business. Four miles from Millerstown, Penn. , has been tapped a well of refined oil, of a greenish tint, but as clear as though passed through a re tort. From the brightness of the flame and the results of the tests, one would suppose that it was the best artificially refined oil. Nature will have to have her per centage in the next oil pool. At their last election the people of Minne sota approved the proposed amendment to the Constitution of their State, to provide for biennial sessions of the Legislature. The plan provides for one session of 00 days' length every two years. The State is to bo districted so that Senators and Assemblymen shall be elected from odd dstricts one year, and from the even the next. Senators will hold office four years, and Assemblymen two. It is estimated that this plan will save S J 00.000 every two years. A few of the pcoile of Massachusetts were enough interested in the question whether the President or Professors of Harvard Col lege should be eligible to seats in the Legis lature to vote upon the proposed amendment to the Constitution. And as 23,840 voted in its favor, and only C,505 against it, the amendment was ratified and the Governor has already issued his proclamation announc ing that it is a part of the Constitution of the State. The total vote it will be seen, was 30,344, while for Governor 184,431 were cast at the same election. Miss Eagan, the young factory operative in all Kiver, Mass., who lost her voice sud denly a few weeks ago, recovered it as mvs tariously, while at work, the other day. It SURVEYOR GENERAL GARDNER. Elsewhere the reader will find onr old friend Bub Gardner's card. There has been a great ueal ot noise among the "reformers" about Bob. They were going to send him to the penitentiary, make his bondsmen suffer, and do ail sorts of things. After having been dealt with after the manner of Jarndyco and Jarndyce he has had his day in court. As to what the result is, our old friend Julius Chester makes it known in most excellent English as follows: After a nrotracted smsmi nf it ornini'if inn of the late Surveyor-General, Robert Gardner, me tc msuiuiea a democratic .Legisla ture against a ReDublican officer baa hwn settled in the courts. From the declaration long since made in and out of public prints, auu ins conimuea attacks in public and pn vate UDon Mr. OArHn sume that the Darties would he nhlo t fn the charge of corruption upon him by the veiuict or rne uourt m which the charge was made. It was exnArerl that tha nan.tin 1 vauvu .11 l.llHLl HtHj officials whose duty it was to establish the 4.. . 1, ,C il . 1 -lis-. . . i m. i oi me cnarges would hnd it easy to 1 popularize themselves and tll n; rlv Severn diilerent complaints were made, most of which were voluntanlyabandoned, and at last, when the pleadings were approved the case went to trial. The prosecution spent three UUVS in SllOwinf' What mnnco rllrlif tn come into the hands of the Surveyor General uu: nig ins term or omce, and then attempted to sh ow that it had actually been received by him, and was not accounted for to tlie State. In these attempts they signally failed. It became apparent from the very evidence given in by the prosecution that no such sum as claimed ever came into his hands, and not a particle of nroof was oftYrrl chnu.iir tht 'any monies had been misappropriated" The counsel for the defense of course ask-pil fop a non suit, which the Court felt compelled to grant, but stated, that in view of the public importance of the case, the Court would de cline to grant it, and, though the case had been closed by the prosecution, the Court could only open the case and o-i'vh th nc. ecution two more days to furnish the neces sary proof. The time passed by, the Court met, and the attorneys for the State an nounced their inability to establish their case. The Court granted a non suit at once. To an outsider it would seem very strange that it could be difficult to frame a complaint for embezzlement that a Court could act upon it. Mr. Gardner pressed the matter at every term of Court, and we believe never asked for a continuance. He announced himself 1 W.1VK SEVEN DAY PRISONERS. Under this head the Elko Independent says: A couple of men have just been brought from Tuscarora and consigned to the county jail for a term of seven days each. They were con victed in the Justice Court of that bailiwick; one for illegitimately appropriating two-bits worth of sage brush, and the other of a simple fracture of the peace and digniiy of the town. f or these henious offenses being impecun iousjustice could only be satisfied bv the incarceration of the culprits for the Drotracted term of seven days, and the United States mail coach was at once made the -vehicle of their transportation to the county seat. Seven entire days! Just think of it one week's board and lodging gratuitously, with whiskey thrown in. It's an awful fate for the poor fellows ; their most intimate friends will not be ab!e to recognize them after so long an absence thev'll be so fat and slick. Why it's a heap better'n bnmming with carte blanc on free lunch, and then tha whole glorious vindication of outraged society won't cost the county to exceed a couple of hun dred dollars; certainly not over two hundred and fifty, and what's such a paltry sum in comparison with the stern enforcement of impartial justice? Why, it's immeasurably cheaper than building merely ornamental bastiles, and then it gives the boys the benefit of healthful travel with the elevating influence of the accompanying officer. Let's have five or six of such roiring forces per week, and if it-can t be done under the present regime, let the good citizens of Tuscarora stuff a petticoat, establish another Justiceship, and convert the present jail into a lager-beer saloon.
