Scene A Court of Justice in
A beanlless ilisij.le of Themis
rises ami thus ad ilresseil the Court;
".May it please your worship, ami
you, gentlemen of the jury, since
it lias been my fortune '(ijooil or
bail I will not say) to exercise my
self in legal iliscpiisition, it has
never befallen me to be obliged to
prosecute so direfully marked an
assault. A more willful, violent,
and dangerous battery and filially
a more diabolical breach of the
peace has seldom happened in a
civilized country, and I dare say
it seldom has been your duty to
pass upon one so shocking to be
nevolent feelings,as this which took
place over at Captain I'iee's, in this
county, but 'oti will hear from
The witnesses being sworn, two
or three were examined and dispos
ed. One said that he heard, but
he did not sue the light; another
that he saw the row. but he did not
know who struck first, and another
that he was very drunk aud could
not say much about the scrimmage.
Lawyer Chops I am sorry gen
tlemen to have occupied your time
with the stupidity of the witness
examined. It arises gentlemen,
altogether from a misapprehension
on my part. Had I known as now
that I had a witness who was ac
quainted with all the circumstan
ces of the case, and who was able
to make himself clearly under
stood to the court and jury, I
should not have t repassed so long
on Your patience. Come forward

So forward comes the witness,
fat, a chufly old man, a "leetle"

tell about the riot thut happened
the other day at Captain 1 ice's,
and a a good deal of time has al

lawyer a knowing wink, at the
same time clearing his throat.)
Captain liice, he gin a treat, and
cousin Sally Dillard she comes over
to our house and axed me if my
wife she mountn't go. I told
cousin Sally Dillard my wife was
poorly, being as how she had a
totu hof rheumatics in the hip, and
the big swamp was up in the road,
there having been a great deal ot
rain lately, but howsoever, as it
was she cousin Sally Dillard, my
wife mout go. Cousin Sally Dil

moun't go, I told Consin Sally Dil

sense, Air. Harris wnai no you
mean by that rigmarole ?
Witness Captain Kice, he gin a
treat and cousin Sally Dillard, she
came over to my house, and axed
me if my wife "she moun't go, and
I told cousin Sally Dillard
Chops Stop sir, if you please;
we don't want to hear about your
Sally Dillard or your wife; tell us
about the fiht at ltice's.
Witness Well, I will, if you
will let me. .
Chops Well, sir, go on.
Witness Well, sir, Captain
Kice, he gin a treat, and cousin
Sally Dillard, she came over to my
house and axed me it my wife she
There it is again. Witness
please to stop.
Witness NVell, sir, what do you
Chops We want to know about
the fight and you must stop this
impertinent story. Do you know
any thing about the matter before
the Court ?
Witness To be sure I do!
Chops Well, go on then and
tell it, and nothing else.
Witness Well, Captain liice,
he gin a treat
Chops That is intolerable.
May it please the court, I move
that the witness be committed for
a contempt. He seems to be tri
fling with the court. .
Court Witness, you are before
a court of justice, and unless you
behave yourself in a more becom
ing manner yon will be sent to jail,
so begin and tell me what you
know about the fight at I ice's.
Witness Well, gentlemen, Cap

Court (alter deliberating) ?ur.
Attorney, the court is of the opin
ion that wo may save time by let
ting the witness go on in his own
way. Proceed Mr. Harris, with
your story, but stick to the point.
Witness Yes, gentlemen.
Well, Captain liice, he gin a treat,
and cousin Sally Dillard came over
to our house and axed me if my
wife she moun't go. I told cousin
Sally Dillard that my wife she was
poorly, being as how she had the
rheumatics in her hip, and the big
swamp was up; howsomevcr, as it
was she, cousin Sally Dillard, my
wife she mout go. Cousin Sallv
Dillard then axed me if Mose he
moun't go. I told cousin Sally
Dillard that he was the foreman of
the crap, and the crap was smartly
in the grass, but as it was she,
cousin Sally Dillard, Mose he mout
go. So they goes on together,
Mose, my wife, and cousin Sally
Dillard, and they conies to the big
swamp, aiid it was up as I was tell
ing you ; but being as how there
was a log across the big swamp,
cousin Sally Dillard and '.Mose, like
g.-nteel folks, walked the log, but
my wife, like a darned fool, histed
tip her petticoats and walked
Chops Heaven and earth, this
is too bad but go on.
Witness Well that's all I know
about the 11 irlit.
Tin: Kicii and the Poor. They
seldom become rich by their own
exertions who, in youth have all
the money they desire. It is those
who earn their first dollars by the
severest toil who become the
wealthiest men. A similar course
is very favorable to a wealth of
mind. Those bom in humble cir
cumstances, who have strong,
craving intellects, prize their few
books and lew means ot knowl
edge; and, having once gained such
an appreciation of knowledge, it
matters not how broad the current
may become that Hows in upon
their minds, they never learn to
despise it. Besides those in the
humbler classes of society have the
highest incentives of patience and
industry in the pursuit of knowl
edge. 'They had not only fewer
temptations to idleness and evil
habits, but to no other ciass do
patience and industry offer a great
er reward ; and knowledge oilers
to the poor boy wealth and power,
and friends and fame; and, the
poorer he is, the more brilliant and
attractive its proffers appear.
Judge McAribur of the Criminal Court
of Washington has reversed Ihe decision
of a lower court in a suit against a res
taurant keeper for refusing to e: tertain a
colored man. He decided that proprietors
of public homes may decide lor themselves
whom they may entertain. Judge McAr
thurs head is eminently leel. and his de-
cision seems to us sound and just. 1 here
can be no -good reason for compelling a
hotel or restaurant keeper to entertain a
person distasteful eilher to himself or tbe
m;iss 01 bis patrons, and all laws fur that
purpose are contrary to good sense and

Children often break upon llieir parents
with very tough ipiestions. and questions
that wear a considerable looking toward
inlideliiy. It requires in fact, but a sim
ple child lo ask questions lhat no philoso
pher can answer. Parents are not to be
hurried or flurried in such cases, ami go
to making up extempore answers lhat are
only meant lo coi.luse the child, and con
sciously have no real verity. It is equal
ly bad if the child is scolded lor his Iree
iloui, lor what respect can he have lor ihe
truth, when he may not so much as qnes
lioti where it is? Still worse, if the child's
question is taken for an evidence ol his
superlative smartness, mid repealed with
evident pride in his hearing. In all such
CJses. a quiet answer should be given to
the child s question, where it can easily
be done, and where it cannot, some del ay
should be taken, wherein it will be con
fessed that not even his parents know ev
ery Iliing. Or, sometimes, if Ihe question
is one lhat plainly cannot be answered by
am body, occasion should always be taken

Courtship after Marriage.
" from ihe Colden Age

deeply felt the contrast between 1
burden where all was beauty and
buoyancy5 before. Let us see what
that something is.
In courtship nothing is taken for
granted. IJoth parties are put on
their good behavior. Love keeps
itself fresh and active by constant
expression in word and act. Dut,
strange to say, the courtship usual-
iy enus with marriage. erv soon
both parties yield to the sense of
possession, and the feeling of se
curity robs gallantry ot motive
and extracts the poetry from the
mind. The beautiful attentions
which were so pleasing before mar
riage are too often forgotten after
ward; the gifts cease, or come only
with the asking ; the music dies
out of the voice; everything is tak
en for granted, and the love that,
like the silver jet of the fountain,
leaped to heaven, denied its nat
ural outlet, ceases to flow altogeth
er. Then come dull, heavy, hard
days, with two unhappinesses tied
together wishing themselves apart,
and not always content with mere
ly wishing. This is unnatural, and
"What married life wants to give
it new tone and sweetness is more
of the manner as well as the spirit
of the conning time. Wry much
of the pleasure of courtship comes
fro h'i the constant.attentions of the
parties to each other. Their affec
tion voices itself in all possible
ways. Every sentence is edged
with a compliment and spoken in
tender tones. Every look is a con
fession. Every act is a new word
in the exhaustless vocabulary of
love. Kiss and caress are paren
the ticeclauss and gestures in the
dialect of love, and gifts and sacri
fices are the emphatic expressions
of the: -spirit no language can fully
articulate and no devotion declare.
And it is the fact that affection con
fesses itself continually in look and
word and act, making the voice
musical and the fingers poetic in
their touch and doing, that makes
the experience so beautiful, the
only Eden many a woman ever has
Love must have expression or it

beau'.' ful and blessed as the first,
by giving it constant utterance in
word and act. The more it is al

stronger and more satisfying and
more blessed it will be. The house
becomes home only when love
drops its heavenly manna in it fresh
every day, and the true marriage

and helpful service and delicate at
