Closed.— -Thcßank of Lawrence county, in

doors and suspended business. This last mis

stockholders was held, at which a committee
was appointed to investigate the matter and re

circumstances. This committee is to report at
an adjourned meeting of the stockholders, to be

Aw Austrian Detachment Takes Petsoneeb
bt a Eailwat Engineer. —Among the many
lighter passages of the war with which the
Parisians amuse themselves, we find In the
sport tho story of the capture of a detach
ment of Austrians who were taken prisoners by
the engineer of the railway. It appears that
the Austrians were en route for Peschlerra to
reinforce Gen/ Urban, when tho engineer, whose
sympathies were naturally on the Itnllinu side,
“ switched off,” and conveyed the Tutonio he
roes into the middle of tho allied camp. Here
they were politely escorted from tho railway
carriages by the French soldiers, who, with that
amiable politeness for which the nation is dis
tinguished, saluted their enemies with " All
those who are going to Franco willplease change
cars!” The feelings of the Austrians, at find
ing themselves taken prisoners in so ignoble a
manner, may be imagined but not described.

in the race, and ran to the twenty-eighth mile,
when Bennett gave out, leaving his rival to ac

were run by Smith in seven hours and twenty
four seconds. He continued the race to the
sixty-first mile, when his feet became so swol

Editorial Duels in .\ew Orleans*
Gentlemen who wield the editorial pen in New

use of the pistol. At least, many' of them have
been called upon to exhibit their expertness
with the latter weapon as well as the'former.—

Father with Tuber Dozen CHthpRER.—At
Markheideufelt, a village situated on the riter
Mail), in Bavaria, there lives a jnaa sixty-eight
years of age, named Johannes Schlottcpbcck.
He is a master chimney-sweep,'a vocation more
honorable in Germany than in this country, and
for half a century has given personal attention
to bis business. He is now living witbhisthird
wife, and'on the 16th of June last his thirty
sixth child was christened in the parish church.
By his first consort he had eighteen
of whom half ore girls, and one half boys. A
few families so prolific would supply a nation
with all the soldiery required for its defento,
and. laborers to perform its necessary agricul
ture and manufacturing. There is a vitality
left in thp old Teutonic stock yet, enabling it to
sprout so abundantly. The French, and even
the Irish, cannot come up with it.

Fikal Decision <xt t k 6a*AT Bcur.
Seven years ago Mrs. Shaw, of Bostoa, com
tDCßced asuit against; the Boston and Worces
ter Railroad Company for killing her husband.
Three trials have been bad and throe verdicts
‘ slB,ooo and $22,000
caoh progreiwing in amount to correspond with
thh acorued interest and expenses. Few cases,
anywhere, have ever been contested more ob*.
iitfoately, and the finest legal talent in the
State was employed on both sides. Last week
dtbe Supreme Court denied the motion for a new
-trial, applied for by the defendants, and the
Railroad Company will now have to pay about
costs included. They were tho losers
'by setting aside the first verdict! Obstinacy
does not always pay, and the price of husbands
in Massachusetts is tolerably-high.
