The Virginia Cbruniole given the foU. lowig account af a trial before J nut ice Knox of that city. The defendant Meek er, with b girl, had attended the party i u ifoum. - tu&iii.J mu valued Adams, and the latter being suspected by Meeker of taking undue liberties with his girl, his nnuie proved a misnniner, tor he at once banged it to Adams in the eye, who brought uit for assault: Attorney for defense Mr. Adams, di.i you not deport yourself lu an unseemly way to the. young lady' -, The witness Not altogether. . ' Attorney Now didn't you hug her? Witness Yes, by mistake. (The jury loon at one. another in astouisuuient.) Attorney-i-Pleiise explain. . Witness X was sitting on the sofa alongside nay wife when suddenly a gust of wind put out the light. After the light Was txtioguished I heard a noise as if people were gettiug kissed sensation so I thought I'd stand in, I grabbed the lady next to me, thinking it was my wife, and when the Innip was relighted I lound it was Miss Clark that I had hold of. The laughter in the room was checked by Constable Metcalf.J Attorney -Did you kisi her? Witness (alter Bouie hesitation) I don't think I did. Attorney Why are yoti not sure? Witness There was so much confu sion at the Attorney Now don't you know yon did? Witness I won't swear positively whether I did or not. Attorney If you had beau Bure it was your wife, would you have kissed her? Here the witness looked round an easily for a few seconds, and not eating his wife in the Court-room, answered, with a grin, " No " This oaused another general laugh aud the witness left the staud. lie was more than astonished a'momeut after when bis wife was culled. She swept out from the bach room and took the stand, with her blaok eyes snapping like a tiger's. At tbe eight of ber, Adams presented a pitiable appearauce and made himself ng small as possible behind Con stable Metoalf. No man in the Court room would have chauged places with him for a thousand dollars. Mrs. Adams had been subpoenaed for tbe prosecution, but her husband labored nnder the mistaken belief that she bad been excused. The District Attorney must have known that it was dangerous . to put her on the stand, but he oould not resist the temptation. She was mora than anxious to testify. "We were having a liitle social party at our house last Tuesday evening. I was sitting beside my husband ou tbe sofa when he asked me to go across tbe room and intorduce a couple of people tbat wern't acquainted. I went, and just then tbe light went out, Soon after, Miss Clark, tbe girl Meeker came with, slid over toward my husband that man sneaking down behind the Constable. Then I heard 'em kiss. X told Meeker tbat it was a put up job, and be knooked . my husband down. I thought lie did just right." Miss Lucy Clark, who lives on North btewart street, testihed tbat she was sitting near Mr. Adams when tbe light went ont. Everybody wan rnshiog to kiss tbe girls and sbe thought sho would get up near Mr Adams lor protection, be being a married man. (Jreat merri ment, in wbicb tbe Court unwillingly joined Distriot Attorney Did he kiss you? Miss Clark (blushing) Ho thought I was bis wife. Tbe Court Did yon kiss him buck, thinking be was your busuandr At this sally the Court the speolators laughed uproariously, nod it required several minutes to restore order. Miss Clark deolined to answer, and the Court decided tbat she need not criminate herself. A yonng lad named Armstrong, a nephew of Adams', swore that his unole promised him a dollar to blow out the light when be gave the signal. Adams scratched the top of bis h ad as a signal. He gave tbe signal just after bis wile left him. Tbe jury found a verdict of not guilty. When Adams next has an oocaxion to Boraton his head, it is possible that he will find less hair there than whan he scratched It the last time. That brisk little lady of 72 Summers. Mrs Myra Claik Gaines, has arrived in Washington. She tells the Fost that sbe will try to reform Congress a start ling suggestion truly. Her plan is to equip a large hotel in Washington where the aooommodation and prices will en courage the Congressmen to take their wives and obiliren to tbe capital with tbem. should the Congressmen have their wives to watch them, thinks Mrs Gaines, tbey wouldn't be so wicked. Faith builds the bridge of prayer that spans tne onasm oi numsn need. THE PIOCHE VOL. XIX. NAMES OF COUNTRIES. Europe signifies a country of white complexion, and was so named beoause the inhabitants were of whiter com plexion than those of Asia or Africa. Asia signifies "between," r in the middle, from the (act that the geogra phers pliiotd it between Europe and Africa. Africa signifies a land of corn and ears It was celebrated for its abnndaoc of oorn and all sorts of grain. Siberia signifies thirsty or dry very ap propriate. Spain, a oountry of rabbits or conies, it was once so infested with these animals tbat it Bued Augustus for an urmy to destroy them. Italy, a country of pitch, from its yielding great quantities of black pitch. Calabria, also for tbe same reason. Gaol, modem Franos, signifies yellow haired, as yellow hair characterizes its inhabitants. The English of (VluioDla is a high bill. This was Tnfcgsdc"iuo8ntainous province in Scotland, Hibernia is utmost or last habitation, for beyond this westward the Phoenicians never extended their voyages. Britain, tbe oountry of tin, great quantities baing found on it and the adjacent islands. Tbe Greeks called it Albion, which signifies in the Phoeni cian tongue either white or high moun tain, rom the whiteness of its shores or tbe high rocks on tbe wsstern coast. Corsica, a woody plaoe. Sardinia signi fies a footstep of men, wbioh it re sembles. Syraouse, bad flavor, so called from the unwholesome marsh on whiob it stood, llbodes, serpents or dragons, which it produced in abnndanoe. Sicily, the whirlpool of destruction. iEtua signifies a furnaoe, or dark and smoky. Amerioa, ia honor of one of its discover ers, Amerious Vespucius. Tnn Ex-Empress Euoenis. The ex- Empress of France is said to be one of the richest widows in Kngland. In ad dition to ber Hungarian eBtate she has a ciatle in Spain and a nice place in Switz erland. Cut bard cash ia what oomes most useful to dethroned sovereigns who hope to return, and of this the Empress has long had abundance. It ia estimated in Paris that she is worth at least a mil lion sterling. Only recently she sold a large block of house property in the Bue d'Alba, in Paris, and M. Kouhor'e bouse, a well-known political oenter at tbe comer of tbe Bue de 1'Elysee. was here, in her own right, and was sold last year for 15,01)0. The death of the Fnnoe Slid a to her property, since he left to her a considerable amount of landed prop erty in Italy, as well as the Teulouae properly, bequeathed to him by tbe grizzly General who had been equerry to tbe Frinoe when he toddled about the corridors of the Tulleries nearly three feet bigh weighted with tbe miniature uniform of a colonel in the Gent Garde, This vast property was no enoumbranoe to the impress whilst yet she bad a son to live and soheme for. It was drained pretty freely by tbe Bonapartist organs of the press in France. The Orde and the Pays were lavishly supported by the Empress, and she also drew handsome checks in favor of the reduction of the Gaulois. Tbe need for keeping these fires warm is now dead. The Empress ia not likely to keep newapapers alive to work for ber good cousin Jerome. L Howard Paul's London Letter. When Governor Seymour of New York entered upon bis dnties at Albany he was very anxious tbat bis first pardon should be right beyond question. While think ing an tbe subject he received a letter from the officers of one of the prisons stating that a negro conviot bad been confined in their institution for mere than twenty years, that bis conduct had been good in all respeots, and tbat tbey placed full conSdenoe in bim. Bis time would soon expire and they asked a pardon and a certificate of good conduot, which would belp him when ha was again out in tbe world. "I knew of none," said tbe Governor, " who oould show a better record, and granted the pardon. At tbe end of a week what was my surprise to receive a letter from tbe convict in which be said tbat more than twenty years he bad lived in the Slate prison and bad tried to do his duty. Such being tbe cane, be wanted lo know why the Governor had turned bim out at the beginning of Winter to starve and Irer-zn. when if be bad been let alone until Summer be could take care of him self?" Tbe Italian government is about to constroot a large observatory on Mount Etna. A site has been selected at a higbt of 9.651 feet above tbe level of tbe sea, near tbe Casa de 1' Inglesi, so called from a building erected there in loll by the English during their oooupstion of Bioily. lhe purity of the atmospnere is so crest at this elevation tbat tbe planets oan be observed with the naked eye almost as well as with Mesoopes of low power through the tblok atmosphere of towns. Venus when shining alone in the heavens, oasts a distinct shadow this will be the second loftiest observ atory in tbe world, tbe United States sicnal station at fine s feat, in uoio redo, at an elevation of 14,366 feet, being tbe loftiest station. Tbe editor of tbe Oroville Mercury, who ib a newlv-married man, has an article in bis paper beaded: " Wanted a boy." That's what we wanted, but we alinned no on it. Girls are not a bad thing to have around, however. Wil lows Journal. An exchange in a moment of rapture, wants to know the difference between nlaret cuooh and a pretty girl's hps The difference ia, tbat the latter don't go good through a straw, - WEE PIOCHE. NEV..
