THE particulars of the late opt ge_per-,
petrated in Smithfield toWnshiii, are too
disgusting and revolting for publication.
We bad hoped thattbey were greatly ex
aggerated, but the accounts which 'first
reached us fall snort df the facts as dis
closed at the examination before Justice
FORREST. It is disgraceftil .that such an
exhibition' of brutality and indecency
should recur -in a„ Civilized „community,
and it is due to the vindication of the law
abiding and respectable citizens of Smith
field, that the actors in the outrage should
meet with the punishment they so richly
deserve. Our Smithfield correspondent
refers to this occurrence, but evidently
considers the horrible indecencies
were proven to have been perpetrated as
unfit for recital.
Canzstmas passed off very quietly, al
though observed very generally" by our
citizens as a holiday. Appropriate ser- .
vices were held in, the morning - at both
the Episcopal and Catholic Churches. In
the evening the M. E." Church Sunday
School held a festival,' at which i there
was some excellent singing_ by. the mem
bers of the school, some beautiful instru
mental music, an d two handsomely deco
rated Christmas trees. The Church was
filled to overflowing 'by happy schohne, -
their teachers and friends, and the even. ! .
ing proved a highly pleasant and enjoya
ble one to all present. On Christmas eve
the Sunday School scholars of the Church
of the Messiah were treated to an even
ing's enjoyment and a Christmas tree
heavily laden with good things; in (the
basement of the Ch lira). The large rooms'
were well filled with scholars; teachers
and friends of the school. Seyeral of the
scholark received handtionie presents for
punctuality in attendance during the past
year, and several of the teachers were the
recipients of ttstinionisht of esteem at the
hands of their scholar 8. •

It is probable that nothing has ever oc
curred in this county, that has so. thor
oughly aroused the public in 'general, as
did the disgraceful affair, .the account of
which was first published in the Elmira
Telegram.. According to the. evidence as
brought out by the trial, the facts were
not in the least exaggerated. The state
ment in the teltram is wrong, howevei,
in two particulars : First, the outraged
partiei l l were not married ; and second, it
togs nett in B:ailltyleld at all, and we should,
not irve, the credit of it., The perpetra
tors of the nefarioris, deed, with a single
exception, were not` really residents of
Smithfield. Tut° reside in Springfield,
two *ere from Troy, having been in our
town but a short time, one from Towin
da, and the others cannot:be properly 10.
-rated anywhere that we. know of—they
certainly do not belong here. Neither do
the unfortunates five in Smithfield, but in
the adjoining township of Springfield.
liappen where it may, it was a disgrace
-ti]a civi.ized community, and the perpe:
tratora should be punished to. the. extent
of the la*. A. fair trial was ;given them
last I Wednesday , and Thu: tklay, before
Esquire tORREST; who committed four
of the number and held the:others nude:
five hundre-dollars,bolicls to appear/ at
_the Feiuiiary Court.- We understand that
- two of ; the four committed have been
tbailed; out at one thousand dollars each,
one other (the negro) for five hundred,
and the fouirth is awaiting trial in the coun
ty jail. Our greitest anxiety is, that,
through some underhanded way the -guil
ty parties may manage to evade the.pen
alties of the law. Every honest law-abid
ing citizen should use his influence. to
have law enforced in this case at least.
