The jury, after being out for an hour, returned a verdict of guilty of murder in the first degree. The jury was polled, and each and every one said that was their verdict. VEie Jvdge tlyen aaked tb^ prisoner wtiy the sentence of the law ” should not be pronounced. The prisoner replied by counsel who asked for a stay of proceedings, which was denied. The Judge then; directed the prisoner to stand up when he pronounced the following sentence: Joseph Waltz- You have been convicted of the greatest crime known to law: that is, the deliberate and wilful taking with design the life of a fellow ERRORS OF 70TTTH. FOR SALE.—A tract ol land formerly owned by Samuel Smith, deceased, and located in Wellsville (so called) New Milford. For further information enquire of H. W. Booth. 77-83* (?a l i9 at t h e ^ ^ JO U R N A i’’ FOR JOB WORK. A NEW WAY TO METE OUT JUSTICE. A correspondent gives the following account of a recent scene in a Chinese court. The case was one of homicide of a Chinese coolie by a British subject, and Chinamen generally were greatly exercised over it, besieging their lord and master, the magistrate of the city, in his office, in crowds, and bawling for vengeance for dayf together. It appears that the accused was wrangling with six coolies about the amount of wages due them, when he lost his temper, and went for his gun to frighten them' off. This he succeeded in doing, but not until after he had fired both barrels and blown off the head of one of them, and for this he has been sentenced to two years imprisonment. The preliminary inquest was held by a Chinese Coroner, conducted on Chinese legal principles. The witnesses who gave evidence were four of the coolies present when the man was shot, about twenty relatives of the deceased, who were none of them within miles of the spot when tbe crime occurred, but who unanimously testified that the case was one of wilful murder, and about 500 friends from the deceased’s native village, who kept on “ testifying” at the pitch of their voices to the virtues of the deceased, and to-the foulness of the criine. The four coolies all spoke at once when they were’asked by the Coroner the usual string of questions, utterly foreign to the point at issue, which Chinese officials put on such occasions, and their answers were accompanied with a chorus of wailing by the twenty relatives, and of mifledictionB by the 500 friends. The hubbub was fearful, and the Coroner soo^ thought he had had enough of it;, so ordering the dead body to be sealed np^ in its coffin, and taken away for budal, he began to make for his chair without giving any verdict. Neither relatives nor friends would hear of this, so they kicked the coffin over, pulled down' the mat-shed that was doing d u ^ for a court-house, and began to hustle the jC!oroner and his people. His sedan-chair was banged against a wall an^ kept there, and while he was cowering with terror inside, a free fight ensued between his retamers and the deceased’s relatives b ^ f . The oouik»hM iK> option, mnch AS kahrinks from ^ discharge of this painful duty, but to pronounce upon you the d re ^ sentence of death. In the justice of the verdict which haa-fwl^ y^uigUllly pf -this ^ e a t and high crime, the Coi^ most fully concur. Whatever could be done for you by the skill and talent of man, has been done. I need not speak in commendatory terms of the great effort which counsel has made in your behalf. The jury and the court have listened with pleasure to his eloquert and forcible appeals for you, presenting every possible consideration and every possible motive that could move the judgment or the hearts of men; but the result could not be otherwise. That you understood that crime— that you knew that you ought not to take the life of a man who trusted himself to your care, we fully believe. When you took the body at the dead hour of night and buried it, as you supposed from human view; when you burned the machine which he carried with him; when you sought to erase all traces of blood which the crime had left behind; these facts show too well a consciousness on your part of what you had done. T hw was only one inference which could possibly be drawn, and that was, knowing that you had broken the laws of God and man, you meant to escape punishment if you could. We sympathize with your father. We sympathize with your mother and sister, and also with your brother who is absent in a distant State. We also sympathise with you. You mi»t prepare to meet you* God. You must prepare to render to Him as well as to this earthly tribunal, and to this people, whose laws you have broken, an account of that terrible night’s doings. Prepare to meet Him. We shall give you time and (mportunity so to do. It IS a terrible thing to stand in the presence of the Great Judge who has said: “Thou shalt not kill and to answer for such violation of his law. We commend you to Hia mercy—we commend you to His, grace. Joseph Waltz, the sentence of the Court, is that you be in^risoned in the jail of the county of 6reene until the first day ef May next» and that on that day, between the hours of 10 and 2 o’clock, you be hanged within the jail, or within the prison walls of the County of Greene, or a yard or enclosure adjoining thereto, by the neck, until you are dead; and may God have mercy on your soul. A Coroner’s Court in China, espouse the cause of law and order by punching somebody’s head, joined. The aged mother and sisters, who were in the fore front of the battle,fared badly, as the scattered chignons and back hair plentifully scattered on the road betokened, and a few of the more prominent friends’ noses bled, but no great harm was done in the scuffle. A sudden rush by the chair-bearers, an extra hard knock or two to the noisiest relative, and the Coroner’s chair was clear of the crowd. Next day, when he had sufficiently recovered from his terror, he gave a verdict of wilful murder against the man. A Hippopotamus Hunt. The two boys had the good fortune to secure the friendship and protection of Kalulu, a boy about Selim’s age, the adopted son and heir of the Watuta King. They were assigned quarters as comfortable as the negro cabins afforded, and were treated by Kalulu as honored guests, and he entertained them with various amusements. Of these the hunting expeditions were the most exciting. And, among the best of them, was the hippopotamus hunt. The three boys set out gaily one morning for the River Liemba, a short distance from the village. They were accompanied by two warriors of the tribe, and also by two negro men, Simba and Moto, who had formerly been slaves to Selim’s father, and who, now that the father had been slain in battle, resolved not to forsake the son, but to watch over and care for him. Simba was a giant in size and strength, and Moto was the man of brwns. He had a verry cunning head on his shoulders, and could always give good advice. The party were well armed. They soon reached the river, and getting into the canoe, paddled swiftly down the stream te the feeding grounds of the hippopotami. They landed at noon upon an island, and had just finished their lunch when they heard low, deep bellowing very near them. They were on their feet in an instant, and ran noiselessly to the edge of the island, and counted the heads of a herd of hippopotami quietly enjoying the cool, deep waters. “Five of them!” cried Kalulu. “Now for sport!” They quickly divested themselves of part of their clothing, anticipating the possibility of a swim, and jumped into the canoe, Simba and Moto taking the paddles, and one of the warriors seizing the harpoon, to plunge it into the ammal that should first approach. They had not long to wait. A monstrous head and neck soon arose out of the water, close to the bow of the boat. At the same instant the harpoon was shot into the neck. The wounded animal immediately sank and swam up the river, dragging the boat after him with frightful speed, for the rope of the harpoon was fastened to it. But in a few minutes the speed slackened, and the boat began to float down the stream. “Pull back!” cried the harpooner. Simba and Moto dashed the paddles into the water, but it was too late; up oATnc. the gigantic head of the hippo-tamus, right under the canoe, which shot into the air, while its occupants tumbled heels over head into the water. Tlfey all swam to the shore in safety except Abdullah, who was wounded by a crocodile but rescued by Kalulu, Simba and Moto. After landing and taking care of Abdullah, the next proceeding was to hunt for the canoe, which had been dragged off by the wounded hippopotamus. It was found among the reeds of the island, with the body of the dead hippopotamus still fastened to it by the harpoqn line. Together they dragged the huge creature into shallow water, and loaded the canoe with part of his flesh, which is esteemed a great delicacy. They then lifted Abdullah carefully into the canoe, and returned to the village, where the young Arab soon recovered from his wound. —St. NichoHs for Feh'uary. Experience as a Granger. An extract from a private letter by a gentleman in the Adjutant General’s office in Washington, (residing in Virginia,) giving a specimen of personal experience which is so “expressive that we publish it. ' I am doing a little—^I don’t think I exaggerate when I say (blank) little in agriculture. At the risk of being tedious I will give you a short account of my first experience as a granger. As soon as I was firmly rooted, my first wish was for fresh eggs; my second, for fresh milk. My first was easily settled and I had my feathered factory running in a short time, and gathered in my hen fruit. In regard to my second, I turned my attention to ‘Maryland, my Ma|7 land,’ and was not long in meeting with a cow—together with a calf—to my liking, on a farm of a friend of mine. I was chuck full of stock, and constantly “ chinrung” my better-half as to how nice it would be to raise that calf, etc., etc. I purchased the cussed bovine—a malicious female bovine—and had it sent up the majestic Potomac. She landed on the shores of Virginia, in the ancient town of Alexandria; and having got off the wharf, some youngster—neither having the fear of the animal’s horns nor my wrath before his eyes—gave a yell worthy of a Modoc or Comanche, and then that cow straightened her tail and ambled off at a rate of about a mile a minute, more or less. Having hold of the calf, and desiring to retain something in the bovine line, I could not consult my chronometer, so would not not like to swear as to exact time O' attention to the boy, and balanced him a moment on the toe of my boot. Leaving him to complete his toilet, 1 sought, with hurried steps, the ‘parient’ of that calf. I found her about three miles from the scene of her first landing, and (‘confound the critter!’ such was my remark) in a directly opposite direction from my home. Obtainmg a rope, the cow and I indulged in some gymnastic exercise and finally 1 lassoed her and tied her behind a wagon, in which I had placed the junior member of the firm. The crowd which had assembled in the meantime extending to me their fullest sympathy. I knew this by the expression of their countenances. They encouraged me by their smiles. Once again homeward bound, I felt satisfied that either the cow or the horns would come. Fortunately, both concluded to come, but a change of mind took place at the end of the first mile. I had been explaining to the driver what a simple and easy thing it was to manage stock, when the cow again invited me to an exercise of my managerial abilities by protesting against keeping in my company. I tried to gently persuade her with a stout whip—but not being correct in my estimate of distance, something struck me about the hip and I left my moorings. After anchoring once more I took a good look at that cow. It being then about 9:30 P. M., I undid the rope from the axle and tied it to a telegraph pole, and ’went home, with a vague hope that she might be courteous enough to send me a despatch if she left during the night. My dreams until morning were made up of a sort of pyrotechnic display of horns, tails and hoofs, and I was glad when I awoke to find myself alive. Hieing immediately to the telegraph pole, I found my charge browsing around the base thereof. Making a slip knot in a rope, I persuaded her to ‘put her foot in it,’ and securing the services of a muscular son of Erin I bade him hang on to it and I took charge of her head, keeping a strict lookout that she would not insert anything objectionable under my coat-tail. I got her home. The next day we had veal for dmner. The cow I keep for the sake of her milk and the memories surrounding her,—but whoever sells me live stock hereafter must bring the same to my door, or we can’t trade.” In a Granger Lodge. The Grangers are in order now, and the funny writers are after them. Here is the report of the opening scene in a Grange, that even the Granger himself cannot fail to see some good points in : On being brought into the ante-room of the lodge (Greengrocer Temple, No. 101), I was told that I had been balloted for and accepted. My informant, who was securely masked by what I afterwards learned was a large burdock leaf, perforated with holes for the eyes, told me that if I valued my life it would be necessary for me to strip. A sepulchral voice from within asked, “Who comes?” My guide answered: “A youthful agriculturalist who desires to become a Granger.” Sepulchral Voice—Have you looked him carefully over? Guide—I have, noble gate-keeper. b. V.—Do you find any agricultural marks about his person? Guide—I do. S. V.—What are they? Guide—The candidate has carroty hair, reddish whiskers and a turnup nose. S. V.—’Tis well. Why do you desire to become a Granger ? Guide (answering for candidate)— That he may be thereby the better enabled to harrow up the feelings of the rascally politicians. S. V.—You will bring in "the candidate. My worthy stripling, as you can not see, I will cause you to feel that you are received at the door on the three points of a pitch-fork, piercing the region of the stomach, which is to teach you the three great virtues— faith, hope and charity. Faith in yourself, hope tor cheaper farm machinery, and charity for the lightning-rod peddler. You will now be harnessed, and in representation of the horse, Pegasus, will be tested as to endurance and wind. The candidate is here attached to a small imitation plow, by means of a hempen harness. A dried pumpkin vine is put in his mouth for a bit and bridle—he is made to get down on all fours, the guide seizes the bridle, and urged on by a Granger armed with a Canada thistle, which he vigorously applies at the terminus of the spine; the candidate is galloped three times around the room. While making the circuit the members rise and sing: Get up and dost, you bully boy— Who wouldn’t be a granger? If the thistle’s prick don’t cause you joy. To feeling you must be estranged, eh! After this violent exercise he is rubbed dry with corn-c®bs, beeswaxed where thistled, and brought standing up before the great chief—the Most Worshipful Pumpkin Head. M. W. P. H.—Why do you desire to be a Granger? Candidate—(answering for himself— That I may leam to extinguish sewing machine agents. M. W. P. H.—Have your hands been hardened with toil? Candidate—Not extensively, but then I am not running for office. M. W. P. H,—’Tis well, for our lodges contain several who are supposed to be ready to sacrifice themselves for the good of their constituents. Ch a b l e s D ic k en s ’ A d v ic e to ms any one in a n y ------- be hard upon people who are in your power. Try to do to others as you would have them do to you and do not be discouraged if they fail sometimes. I t is much better for you that they should fail in obeying the greatest rule laid down by our Savior than that you should. I put a New Testament among your books for the very same reasons and with the very same hopes that made me write an easy account of it for you when you were a little child: Because it is the best book that ever was or ever will be known in the world, and because it teaches you the best lessons by which any human creature, who tries to be truthful and faithful to duty, can pessibly be guided. As your brothers have gone away, one by one, I have written to each such words as I am now writing to you, and have entreated them all to guide themselves by this book, putting aside the interpretations and inventions of man. You will remember that you have never at home been harrassed about religious observances or mere formalities. I have always been anxious not to weary my children with such things before they are old enough to form opinions respecting them. You will therefore under-stSid the better that I now must solemnly impress upon you the truth and beauty of the Christian religion as it came from Christ himself, and the impossibility of your going far wrong if you humbly but heartily respect it. Only one thing more on this head. The more we are in earnest as to feeling it, the less we are disposed to hold forth about it. Never abandon the wholesome practice of saying your own private prayers, night and morning. I have never abandoned it myself, and I know the comfort of it. I hope you will always be able to say in after life that you had a kind father. You cannot show your affection for him so well, or make him so happy, as by doing your duty. , ------------------------------- F a ir O n e s , T a k e N o t ic e .—Many wonen who, before marriage, made it their study to please the eyes of the men they wished to marry, lose their affection after marriage by carelessness in dress. Men are fastidious iin this matter. Even those who are careless in regard to their own appearance take delight in seeing their wives neat in their attire. They miss those coquet-ish garments, the neatly dressed hair, and all the thousand tasty and fanciful little articles with which young women adorn themselves, more than they would be willing to allow. The neatness and order which charmed them too often give place to a slovenly morning gown, frowsy hair, slipshod and unlaced shoes, and the like. Men reason that they should have the same desire to please the men they they have chosen after marriage as well as before it. The last new song loses its charm coming from the lips of a slattern. The poetry goes out of life at a glance, and the household loses its brightness. The wife who on account of household cares neglects her personal appearance, commits a grave mistake which too often bears bitter fruit, and they see their husbands leave their society for that of others without really knowing the cause, and most men are too proud to tell them. Let women always give the same care to their dre£S after marriage which they gave it before, and not rush from the room to “ dress «p” only when there is a prospect of “compan^: Let them consider that which gives then a charm in the eyes of their friends has a like effect upon a husbuui and they will see that he will not have so many pressing business calls ‘*in the city” in the evening, but will have the same delight in their society as in their days of courtship. Bound to Get a Subscbibeb Amr Wat.—He was once out on a jaunt in the township of White Oak, Ingham ceunty, sticking to every farmer until he got his name and money, and it so happened that he came to a hoose where dieath had called a few hours before. The farmer’s wife was laid out and the husbandman and his children were grieving over her loss when the editor knocked at the door. “What’s up?” inquired the editor, as he saw the farmer’s solemn cooate* nance before him. “My wife is dead,” rq>lied the fanner. “Is that so?” mused the editor, a Kt-tle disappointed. “Did she die easy?” “Dropped off like a lamb.” “Did she say anything?” “Not a word—just went right to sleep like.” “ I didn’t know,” continued the editor, a sad look on his face, “ b«t what she might have requested you to subscribe for The CaseadA, which you know is the best paper in the county. If you want it Fll take your name r ^ t in, and under the circumstances 1 won’t charge a cent for the obituary notice!” The farmer hung off for a while, but before tbe editor went away he had two additional dollars in his pocket, and had written out an obituary notice for publication in the next issue, which the bereaved husband pronounced “a mighty smart piece.”—Detroit Frte Press. A DESPEBA-ra: Inciendiakt.—^At the recent Meuse assizes, says a Paris correspondent, a man of the name of Ju-lien was placed at the bar; he was nearly sixty years of age, rieh, was married twice, and has childrM by both wives; in 1860 he was named Mayor of his commune, and exerdsed his function for seven years. In the course of 1867 he unjosUy accused a neighbor of theft, and the whole village took part against him. Julien determined to avenge himself, and in cendiarism, and out ef forty-six ho«- s€s twentv-seven were destroyed. No one doubted the guilt of Julies, \mt such was the terror which his name inspired that no one could accuse him. A few months ago the procurer heard of the affair and instituted proceedings. At the trial mnetv-two w i t i^ - es gave ^^idence against the priaoDer, and it turned out that on some occasions Julien fired his own property (which was insured) so that the flswi i might extend to the neighboring houses. One poor fellow was Dumed out ^ five times. Several of the families wWch appeared before the court had bees utterly ruined. The iwiaaner was defended by Maitre Lac baud, but was found guilty, and sentenced to hard labor for life. Extbaobdinabt Lokgbtity.—^n » obituary of the London Tw^e* wceafly contained some remarksbls iUutn* tions of prolonged existence in seven persons, viz., four ladies and three gentlemen, whose united ages amounted to 619 years, ^ving the rare avenge of 88 years and more than five iponths to each; the oldest was a gentleman who reached the great age of 93^ years; the youngest of the same sex being 85. Of the fair sex the oldest was 91, and the youngest also 85 years of age. The following were their respective ages— viz., two at 85, 86, 89, 90, 91, and 93. Of the septuagenarians there were eight, whose united ages amounted to 589 years, giving an average of 78 ^ a ra and more than eight months to each.
