Merwin who had a hearing before Justice Merrimon Mon day on a writ of habeas corpus. The ease attracted some attention because of its two sideduess. The facts are: Reid or Merwin was agent at Glenn's Fall, N. Y., for the National Express Company, and on Aug. 20th he skipped with a package containing $f,000. He did not $kip alone, but had the festive companionship of a Mrs Mamie Montgomery. He had stolen the money of his company, and the wife of another man, and made his way to Henderson, X. C, where he was enjoying the naughty ways of swindlers. His whereabouts were ascertained. The Presi dent of the Company found the fleeing agent, who had spent all the money but $3,400. This wa.s in the hands of an at torney, but the guilty man Lave the Ex press Co. President an order for the money, and said he was willing to stand his trial iu New York. A requisition from the Governor for Merwiu was received from the Governor of New York. He was ar rested. Thereupon it was sought to ar rest him for fornication and adultery. Merwin's attorneys desired his detention iu North Carolina for trial for f. aud a; the attorneys for the Expivss Company desired that he be sent to N-. w York for trial for the theft. Justice Merrimon sent the man to New York. He based his decision ou the fact that no regular warrant was served as to the adultery charge, while the New York Governor's requisition was iu due form. It was an odd sight to see a man's at torneys pleading to have him imprisoned for f. and a. Evidently they thought North Carolina would deal morn lenient ly for this offence, than vvouid New York for the theft . - The .Marriage Hells A-Hiiisins.
