Sir. Kennedy was limited. It was light
cnotii'li to arrest him. II' a man argues with
another man, knocks him down to enforce
his particular views, and doesn't exhibit a
meek and lowly spirit after his lit ol anger
as passed away, it is but right that he
hould be arre.-led.
His Honor, the Judge, made me take a sol
emn oalli to tell tlio truth. JIc. might have.
judged from my looks that I would tell a de-
iciato lie about a one-horse knock-down,
or peihaps he hoped I would perjure myself
mid give him a chance to send mo to State's
prison for live years.
The counsel for tho prosecution then
wanted to know what my name was. I had
lived next door to him for eleven years, but
et ho suspected '.hat I might Vie John Smith
or William ratter.son. After I had salished
hini what mv lianio was. be wanted to know
ifl lived in Detroit, lie could have went
from the couit lo my house blindfolded, but
ho persisted in liisoiieslion. Then ho want-
I to know if I lived in "Detroit. Countv of

sitspccl that Ihe name of the county had
been changed, and that I didn't know wheth-
cr 1 lived iu Michigan or Ohio, but 1 satisli-
All this didn't lako ill) but half an hour's
time, and then ho wanted lo know if I saw
the dilliciilty between Kennedy and Thomas,
I was otiito sure I saw it, but ho didu'Uecm
to be. Ilo wauled to know if 1 saw tho blow
tiiick ; if I was ccitain 1 saw it ; if theio
was more than one lilow ; H lliero were inree
blown; if (here was any kicking ; and after
mother half an hour ho seemed lo believo
that I had seen part of the dilliciilty, if not
ill of it.
l'ho coiinscl for tho delenco bad been im- I

says he lives iu Detroit!" exclaimed tlio at-
torney as bo gavo mo a fierce look. Jle

" You hear thai, gentlemen I" lie said, turn

"I object I" said tho counsel for the prose

"Yes J do. 1 can't seo what bcarin
picstinu lias on the case."
"Well, your Honor," replied tho other
iwyer, lacing tho desk, "the question is a
vital one a liingo question. Wo expect
that tho answer to that question will decide
tho innocence of my client."
His honor leaned back as if tho fato of
kingdoms depended upon his decision, and
the lawyers read llio twelfth Michigan re-
port, tlio seventeenth Massachusetts, tbo
ninth New York, tho eleventh Vermont,
and one or two others, and for an hour and
a half tho ease was put aside, They finally

Tlio two attorneys thou brought in anoth

The cnns-exaiuiiiatloii was then resinned
by his asking:

As I was tlio only witness, tlio lawyers at
once went to business, and on tho third day
after the suit commenced, the case was given

Tliidwing Old Shoes.
Very few, probihly, of the, thousands who
throw old shoes after bridal parties as they
nro leaving homo know anything of tho
origin ol the custom, Like almost all ol
our common customs ils origin is ancient,
and can bo traced to lliblo limes. It was
then tho custom for the brother of a childless
man lo marry his widow, or at least ho had
the refusal of her. If ho chose to reject her,
tbo ceremony was public, and consisted in
her losing bis shoo (rout his loot and spitting
in his lace, llisgivmg up llio shoe was a
symbol ol his abandoning all dominion over
her, and her spitting in Ins laeo was an as-
set lion of independence. There was an af-
fair of this kind between liiith and lioaz,
In somo parts of the l'.ast it was a custom to
cany a slipper belore a licwly-iuarrieil couple
as a token of tlio brides slihieclioii. J ho
custom a-, it exists with us is very old in
Lngland and Scotlaiiil. Iho usual say in,
is that it is throw n for luck, and that is Ihe
idea in this country, but originally it meant
a renunciation of authority over the bride
by tho parents. It was formerly a cti-tom
among the Hermans for the bride when she
was conducted lo her bed chamber to lake
oll'hcr shoe and throw it among the giie.-ls.
Whoever got il, m a struggle to obtain it,
leceived it as an omen that he or she would
soon no nappiiy married, i rain, in ins nis-
tory of the "Islo of Man," says: "On tin
biidegroom leaving his bouse, il was ciisto
mary to throw an old shoo after him, and
in like manner an old shoo after tho bride?
m leaving her homo to proceed to church
in order to insure good luck to each respect
ivcly, and if by stratagem cither of Iho
bride's shoes could bo taken off by any in-
speetor on her way from church, it had t(
he ransomed by the brido-aroom." Iu Kent.

their tour tho single ladies are drawn up iu

old shoo is then thrown as lar as possible
and tho ladies run for il, the successful one
being supposed to bo the first femalo who
will gel married. She then throws tho sjioo
at the gentlemen, and llio one who is hit by
it is deemed to ho the first malo who will
enler into wedlock, (ienerally it is consul

There is nothing more likely lo result in

It is well-known lo you all, eiliens, tlio

afternoon it calamity more severo than
almo-l any other that ever happened to this
community. One of tho most lloiirishlug in

this morning for tho purpose, ho far as prac

that tho citizens of this town (inasmuch as
they am each and every ono interested in tho
property of this institution,) that tho citi

inako uiicli provisions for students as will on-
ililo them lo remain and tho school to con

part of llio scholars cm he, laiight. lint the

It has become not only a great attraction
but an indispensable necessity. It must not
bo allowed, for ono moment, although so
great a calamity has befallen il, lo be stayed
in ils course. And it is upon the citizens
now that rest what I may term the responsi-
ilitics involved in this matter. It U not
merely the trustees, a few individuals who
iro citizens of this town, they are not tho
ones solely interested in this institution any
moro than any other citizen, no moro limit
huiidreds or the citizens of this town. Every
citizen feels that it is a matter in which ho
is concerned, that he is not only personally
interested iu it, but that there is a duty
resting upon him lo step forward, and in
every possihlo way to aid this enter-
prise. As it appeals lo my mind what can

may say, 1 his is merely a temporary mat
ter. The building is insured. Tlio insur
ance will be got and the tiustees will put it
up again, and if the school should slop for a
little while that won't make much dill'er-
ence ; H will go on again.
I'liose who reason thus reason without un-
deilaniliiig the facts in thoniattcr. Can we,
if the institution or the school should closo
now for any length of time, do over again
Iho same work that has been doing for years
to bring it up lieforo the people and to place
it upon the foundation where it is now?

Tlio direct object of this meeting this
morning is to ascertain who of the citizens

and tho curiosity of llio peoplo grew rapidly
and iu such a measure that llio government

"H is belter to lovo a man you can nover
marry than to marry a man you never lovo.
This is a short text for a long sermon," says
somo wiso man or woman. A loveless mar
riage is much womo for a woman In every way
than for n man. In tlio first place woman
has her credit, whethershodeserves It or not,
of being much moro rellncd, of possessing
much moro delicacy and sensibility than
tho "stronger sex." Ileing thus higher, her
degiedalion, when it comes, is much moro
thorough and terrible. Few things can con
duce to this result in a greater degree than
the constant nnd intimato relation of mar
ried life with a man she docs not' love. We
havo heard refined young women speak with
disgust of the coarseness of tho conversation
of a class of their married lady acquaintan
ces, mid in many eases have traced this (lis
agiecablo trait back (o lis cause a well
known loveless wedded life. Then again,
perhaps, tlio woman who marries forsilppoit,
for a home, an "establishment," or becauso
she lias never loved any one and fears that
tho present will bo her last ehanco (dreadful
thought), afterwatds meets somo one who she
cm and does love. The result is casly fore
seen, either a life spent in tho terrible dibit
to subdue an unhappy passion or tbo divorce
court. After nil, tho good old Quaker cus
tom is best, duo deliberation find relleclion
before "entering into tlio married state."
Marrying in haste to repent at leisure is
very fashionable now-a-days, but it is a
fashion which can bo profitable or pleasant
only to tho lawyers, and not lo them if they
havo any pity for the unhappy victims of
anil nuptial foolishness and post-nuptial
Antiquity of the Watch.
"Watch" is from a Saxon word signifying
'to wake.' At lirst tho watch was as largo
as a saucer; it had weights and was called
"tho pocket clock." The earliest known
use of tho modern namo occurs in a record
of 1212; which mentions that Edward I,
had 'onn. larum or watch of iron, this case
being likewise of iron gilt, with two plumcts
of lead.' Tho lirst improvement, tho sub-
stitution of a spring for weights, was about
ir.oO. The earliest spring was not coiled,
