On Tuesday May 0, .luelgo Klwell pronounc
ed a sentence upon William Lowrio nnd Wil
linm Shelter, Iwoyoungtuen.tiutillsiifnsdool
in Madison townsllp, for nn aggravated assault
nnd lattery upon William C. Johnson, their
lender. As lie case is one of gcncrnl inter
est, wc give the sentence in full.
A person employed as the teacher of n pub
lic school is dolled with tie authority, for tie
time being, of n parent.
Tliero Is delegated to lim ly operation of
law i, right to command olcdienco to reasona
ble rules nnd regulations, and it Is lis duty lo
maintain order nnd subordination in lis. sclool.
Without this nutliirity, nil e.xpcrienco las
flown tint confusion would result, and tie
lenefit of lie leading bo almost or entirely
lot. Whether tin loader is young nnd Incx-
pcrieni-pil, or nf mntiirer yenrs anil fully ex
perienced, can make no dilli'rcnce in regard lo
the duty of scholars.
They must yield obedience to the reasona
ble requirements ol tho teacher, whether ho be
)oung oi old.
While a tender Ins n right to inflict corpor
nl punishment reasonably, lo las no right to
go beyond that. II he does, lie mnv be indict
ed nnd tried for nssnult nnd battery, and, if
convicted, punished by fine or otherwise.
Willi the progress of refinement those lming
the care of yonlli have learned to enforce obe
dience by kindness rather than by soerity,nnd
although the courts are reluctant to interfere
in matters of discipline, they will discounte
nance every species: of cruelly which may go
by lie name of parental aulliorily.
A pupil has no right to nssnult lis teacher,
because tlo teacher punishes lim. If tie tend
er commenced nn unjustifiable 'assault, tie pu
pil might defend himself ; but ho could not, by
way of revenge afterwards, assault his teacher,
without incuning the penalties of the law. In
tins case without stopping to inquire whether
lie teacher went beyond wlat lie lad a right
to do, in striking Mr. Lowrie one of the defen
dants with whip, it is conceited tl.it nn ns
snult nnd hnttcry was committed as charged ;
niidtl e matter of ,tle preuous whipping can
nut le considered as lau'ng any lenring upon
the ca-c, f.norablo to lie defendants, unless
perhaps by way of mitigition of the ofi'eii'c
they cominiited while still smarting under re
cent chastisement. As lo justification, it is not
land could not be) pretended tint it existed in
this case; certainly not, after the plea of
Although denied by Lowrie, yet there is that
in the circumstances which seems to indicate
that the-o two persons, who supposed they lad
been wronged by their teacher, were drawn to
getler by sjnipatly or something else, nnd
made n simultaneous attack upon him ; wheth
er by previous concert or not, it would seem
that the two engaged in the same act at tlo
same time and for the same reason.
At all events, this nirair was carried to fx.
tremcs, and the conduct of these defedant, is
not to bo treated lightly ; we are disposed 'o
impose sucl n line upon tlem as will be n suf
ficcnt lesson to tlem nnd to nil others in like
cases to refrain from such outbreaks ngams
To tie defendants
You allowed yourselves to le carried away
by passion, to do a wrongful net. It is pret
ty evident to tie Court tint you tlouglt 3011
might take liberties with your teacher, because
lie was a young man, and that, when directed
to elo certain things, you made, as lie says, sau
cy answers What Jar 1 I tem't do il, and the
like. This was wrong. If you went to that
school, )ou were bound to abide by its rules.
If the school-directors saw- proper to employ
Mr. Johnson, n young man, even though you
might be of his age or older, jou were bound
to obey his reasonable directions, and jou had
no right to use impudent language towards
lim ; nnd, if you did so, and le undertook to
iullict punishment upon you, and jou resisted,
and happened to get hurt, it was your own
T lo sentence of tie Court is tint yon and
each of you piy a lino of twenty-five dollars
tn the Commonwealth and the costs of prose
cution, nnd stand committed until tlissenter.ee
is complied with.

Funeral of the. Murdered Cliilil
man. Ktllili Free-
Huston, May 4. Tho funeral of little
Edith Freeman, the victim of her father's
lanatlcism, took place lit tie Methodist
Chtireli in the village of Pocnsset this after
noon. The body was brought to church in
a casket by Alien P. Davis, a sympathizer
ofF fecman in his deed, and one of his die!
abettors. After depositing tie casket near
the altar lo announced lis Intention of ad
dressing tlie audience, but le was prevented
from doing so by threats of arrest. Tlie
sere, ices were brief and appropriate.and were
conducted by the Her. Mr. Williams, pns.
tor of the Methodist Church. The Adveu
tists, who, in their blind superstition, fully
believed that the dead child would be resur
rected or bodily translated to leaven, are
deeply mortifieel that their prophecies should
result in so apparent a nou-fulfiliiiciit.
Freeman is a native of Vermont.' He
was born in Highgale in 1810. He turned
Adventist in February of last year and has
been one of the mo-t zealous in the cause,
llo was married in 1 SOS to Miss Hattie li.
Ellis, of Pocassct. They have had three
children, but one, Lilliar, died wlen in her
babyhood. Ilessie was bom in 1872. Editl
the murdered child, hail she lived, would
have been five years old In August. She
was the pet of tie household. The Adven
tist society in Pocasset is of recent date. It
was started two years ago by one Nathaniel
Wing, a former Methodist, who had become
converted to the doctrine of the Second Ad-
ventistsj by attending a camp meeting ot
that sect in the centennial year. Freeman
was ono of his first converts!. Twenty-five
persons soon formed the little band of Ad
ventists. They still attended the Methodist
church, but frequently created disturbances
by ar-uing with the pastor. Finally they
withdrew and a strong feeling sprang up.
Freeman was a shoemaker before the war.
He served three years, and finally, four or
live years ago, turned farmer. He has n
pleasant, open countenance, has a light com
plexion and light blue eyes. For some time
he has had nn idea that ho was to be a sec
ond Abraham. The Adventists have up
hell lim in tills idea and since the murder
lave stuod by lim. They lave thorough')
believed until to-day that the chi'd would
be raised from the dead. Their chagrin is
deep. Tlie woun J which caused death was
between tlo fifth am! sixth ribs on the lelt
side, one ami one-quarter inches wide, three
inches deep, entering tlie heart. "I killed
my child," said Freeman, "by order of the
L'.rd, as Abraham was ordered lo sacrifice
Isaac, and if the Lord bad not meant that 1
should kill her He would have stayed my
hand." Mrs, Freeman said that she con
sented to tie deed, but did not see it done.
Freeman, when taken to jail, entered with
his wife leaning nn lis arm. They bars ex
pressed no fears for llo future, but spend
much of their time in singing religious
hymns. They say that tho Lord told tlem
to do tie deed, and He will take care of
Freeman first made lis crime known on
Thuisday afternoon. He called a meeting
of tie Adventists and said he had a verv im
portant communication to impart from the
Most High. Tho usual praying and singing
were dispensed with, ami Freeman proeeded
with the recital of bis terrible crime, giving
every point with painful minuteness. The
Adventists then quietly dispersed, and each
kept locked in his own breast tlo awful se
cret with which they were now possessed.
Mr. and .Mrs. Alden P. Davis, both Adven
tists, remained all night in the house of the
Freemaus, the latter couple retiriug early
and s'eeplng soundly, the boely of their
murdered child meanwhile lying in the bed
where it had been struck down. It was their
daughter, Mis Minnie, who first told Offi
cer Hedding of tho unnatural crime. When
Freeman was asked about It he did not en
deavor to hide tie truth. On tie otler land.
he told everything aud trusted in the I.ord to
restore his child to life. The most intense
excitement prevails and Ihe Adventists aie
objects of scorn throughout the village.
ivlter the funeral services over tlie Free
man child in the church at Pocasset the
body was removed to the village cemetery
hard by and deposited in the grave. Davis,
an Adventist fanatic, mounted a marble
lombstono and began an address to the as
seinbled crowd, tlo tried to tirove that
Freeman was justified by Ond In killing his
child. He was interrupted by the crowd.

was covered with sods. Tho Adventists hav

Is worse than folly it is a crime. A few ol
