When the case came into the Supternis
Court the simple question was, whether a
citizen could be lawfully deprived of his
life without a fair, honest trial • , before an
impartial jury• and a regular, court. To
this there could be • but one -answer, and
that answer was given unanimously, all
the fades yielding their full and unre
served assent to it. They held, in effect,
that the pretended trial was >< conspiracy,
and that the execution, if it had taken
place. would have been a mere lawless
murder. What else could they do f To
hitig men without judge orjury is an act
so clearly forbidden •by the fundamental
law that no one can make any mistake
about it, if be has sense enough to know
his right hand from his left. The -prohi
lion is written down as plain as any one of
the ten commandments; there is not a
sentence in the Lord's Prayer more aim- '
not a moral precept can be found in
the child's primer that is more easily up
deratood. Yet the court is vilified, and
abused, and slandered for saying 'it. The
organ]; of disunion and anarchy publicly
proclaim their determination to disregard
the decision, not because it .is erroneous,
but because it confines their- power by
limits inconveniently narrow They de
clare that they will do, in defiance of ;t,
whatever gratifies their own passions or
promotes their own interests ; and they
impudently use this very expression : "If
the law stands in our way, so much the
worse for the law." •

themselves or permit its violation by oth

conflict for and' against the Constitution
implies treason 'on either side.* the guilt
does not lie at our door. It is not the man
who sustains, and loves, and believes in
the laws of his enuntry that can be justly
called a traitor: But if there be an Amer

leaving her at liberty to, return and to be
afterwards chased by some more favored
lover." • That is, the chive, where it leads
to marriage, Rs it commonly doe•, is a
mere farm, the wipe* meaning .to be
caught, As it is always precOed by a
contract, fixing-the - bride's price, and con

a merely symbolical ceremony,' in which

On the part, of. the suitor it is more a
matter of arrangement with the parer vs
than of courtship with the daughter ; but
there is a form generally observed which ,
reminds one strongly of the old tales of
HipPomenes and A tb,o t._ It ti,.

the race is enerally a short one. The
maiden's ar s are strong, but bar heart is
salt and hi nature warm, and she a. , on
becomes aßing captive If the mar- .
riage takes pl ce where no stream is near,
a round circle of a certain size is formed;
the damsel is tripped of all ‘ but a waist
band, and given half the circh's start in
advance; and if she succeeds in running
three times round before her suitor comes
up with her, she is entitled to remain a
virgin ; if not,. she must consent to the
bonds of matrimony. As in the other
chase, but few Outstrip their lovers.
This is the Kalmuck case over again. Sin

regions. We find the form both-as bride
racing and as bride-catching in various
quarters in the islands of the Pacific.-21u
CURIOUS OfgENTAL CUSTOMS —Ther are
many ft./tits of character and custom in
which tlie Arahs and Turks are our ante-
Fades. They shave the head hut not the
chin, and we the reverse. With us the
uncovering of the head in the 'presence of
another is a mark of respect, with them a
°lark or di.respect. When they aointo a
place of worship they keep on their hat
and take off their shoes and slit/pers ; we
do the opposite. They mount on the
right side Of a horse, and we on the left.
They write from right to left, and we from
left to right. We show our good breed
ing by taking the outside when we puts
persons an the street;' they by petosing
neareer to the wall. They do the honors
of the table by helping themselves first ;
we serve ourselves last. If a friend in
quires after your wife you regard it as
compliment ; to enquire afteetheirs is an
insult. Their mornning aress is white; ours
black. They finish their madden houses
from the top downward, and we from the
foundation up. The men west. frocks an d
the women pantaloons; We wash our
hands by dipping them in water, they by
having water poured on them.—Battsman's

looking over the hack, - Ile promptly
supported the back with the left knee,
took a grasp of the bead, and began to

an effort at breathing. Increasing the
pressure the parts suddenly came to their
natural position, and after a minute or
two regular breathing was estahlished.
Close attention was arterward paid to the
case, and after much fever and occasional
convulsions, the child recovered, and is

60 stupendous a circle may be best com

a railway train, traveling incessantly night

which compose it were built up in the form
