Wedding of Mr. - EDWARD F. .I ! uslatts, of
Philadelphia, to Miss KATE DARE, of
Troy, took place at the -residence of the
bride's parents, Dr. and Airs. C.V. DARE,
on February 13th, and;is said to have
been one of the most brilliant affairs of
the kind that ever took Mime in that vil
lage. The house was , nstefully decorated
with flowers .and evcrgrechs, and the
bride was the recipient of many handsome
and costly presents. Miss FANNIE E. F.
LQNG, and Miss lilisstE C. GROHS were
the bridesmaids, and Mr. _Wr.r.t.rsm F.
STEEL, of Philadelphia, and Mr. A. 115.

py couple took the evening twin for Phil

THE Alert is the name of a .9x15 news
paper being issued by the Alert Bose
Company, of Towanda, Pa. The 17th of
February is the fifth anniversary of their
organization. and they aro going to have
a - ' wooden wedding " and festival to cel
ebrate the event on the 17th and 18th;
Perhaps with the exception that there
is mil such paper as the Alert published in
this place, and no such company as the
"Alert Rose Company;" the aboveitent,
which we clip from the Elmira Adrerliter
of the 15th, may be correct. The Adger-
User is not generally given to "mixing
things," but when ft does, it makes a
first•class job of it. All first-class papers
are the same in this respect, Our read
ers are no doubt aware of the fact.
COMPANY K—0.1.--We clip the follow
ing from the last week's Williamsport
-, When the companies of tlie ( Twelfth
Regiment were on their way the inau
guration of . Governor lloyt, t. ey passed
through this city and some f the troops
got drunk and raised are at the roller
skating rink and a more rious disturb
ar.cfr at the Herdic II use restaurant.
The Banner was informed that the mem
bers of the , Towanda Company were the
guilty parties, and commented upon the
case. = ,-
Major BUITOWS, of this City, informs us
that the Towasida boys were not the guil
ty:parties, and that the real offenders be
longed to a company located in the , soft
coal region's of Tioga County, and, :that
the guilty men were at once discharged
when the company returned home Mfter
the inauguration."

clip the following froth the lirorthera Tier
Gazette of February 6th
The question of an additional law judge
is agitating the minds of legal and other
people, impelled by the fact that there is
such an accumulation of legal business es
to demand some relief te the courts.
Among the names suggested for addition
al law judge, there is none 'that seems to
suit the nceessitiess of the case, as well as
that, of W. IL. Carnochan, Esq. Careftd,
well.versed in the intricacies of the law,
clear-headed and capable, he - has the con
fidence both of the people and the mem
bers of the bar, and would fill the place
with dignity and
,ability. But while the
subject is up, would it not be better to
have a just division of the 'county, and
some provision by- which the records
could be of some avail to. the people of
Western Bradford. This would make an
equiMble adjustment of the accumulation
of work in the .courts, relieve them of
their pressure. and givens an additional
law judge_itt the best form. • . < -

INAL CASE.--On the trial of JAMES DUET,
in Columbia_ County, last week, Judge.
ELWELL, in his charge to the jury, said :
"It is my duty to tell you that the de
fendant being intoxicated does not alter
the nature of the offence. If a man
ehooSe'/ to get drunk it is his own volun
tary act. It is very different from mad
ness or insanity not caused by the act of
the person. That - voluntary species of
madness which it is in a party's .power to
abstain from he must answer for. How
ever with regard to the intention, drunk-' ,
enness may perhaps be ddverted to ac `
cording to the nature of the instrument
used. If a man uses a stick you would
not infer a malicious intent so strongly
against him if drunk when he made an
intemperate use of it, as you would if he
had used a different kind of weapon ; but
when a dangerous instrument is used,
which if used must produce grevious bod
ily harm, drunkenness can have uo effect
on the consideration of the malicious in
tent of the party. Here the defendant
used a revolver. ' The question for the
jury is did he shoot at lieu:int. with
tent to kill him."
