In ibis I i s^n action ?u brought bjr the plaintiff t? rt-cprar damages to the araoaatofftMMJM. fbraa ir jury alleged to have been sustained by bin oa the night of the 20th of February, 1W, by falling into an arra In front of the building on the corner of I'lth and G streeta, then la the c<rar?? of srection by Mensr*. Plant & Rigg*. which accident it wa- claimed wa? owing to the waa^ ot nifflnent barriers to afford protection to passers by It was claimed, on behalf of the plaintiff, that one of his limhs had been seriously trac* tured and a per.nauent injury entailed tneraby; thai he vta? a poer man. dependent upon his daily lab??r for support; that being without means, and forever disabled by the effects of the injury sustained, from following his avaeation as gardener, or engaging in any pursuit requiring bodily exertion, he was compelled, I in order to save himself from starvation, to resort to the almshouse, in this city, where be a* present Is, and thns, much against his will, snhsist npon public charity. The defendant nnderoolt to show that the area in question was guarded by a number of barriers, erected in a most caretul and subsantial manner, amply sufficient to secure the safety ot persons passing that way, and that other precautions nad beea taken to provide agaiuei accident; that a light bad been placed at tbe north end, while a large lamp in front ot Jay Cooke's Bank, with three jet#, lighted up the" southern portion; and that two men were nightly engaged in watching about the build* ing. The defendant proceeded to show, further. that the plaintil. was intoxicated on tbe night ia question, ana that tbe accident wa." to be attrihnted to 'bat fact; that the barricade not being thrown down iu auy part was evidence that the plaintiff must have crept through tbe same The Court, after du ly considering the various prayers offered, granted tbe following, presented by Mr. Bradley on behalf ot the defendant: That if from the evidence in this case tne jury shall find the plaintiff did not use ordinary care and prudence in passing along said highway, and by reason thereof fell iuto the said excavation, end thereby received the injury ot which be complains, he cannot recover in this action: and it is immaterial whether such viaa^ot care proceeded from intoxication or not. as the fact of his being drunk, it he were so, di*?s not excuse him from the obligation 'o use ordtnarv care and ptudence. The Court then further instructed the jury as lollows: The defendant was bound to use snch precautionary guards against accident that if injur? fallowed it would be attributable to negiigeuceon the part ot tbe plaintiff 1 he decree of the safeguard should be meas. uteri by and correspond to tbe magnitude of ihe injury liable to follow in the absence of a complete protection, as life aud limb are the stake in risk: that barricades should be so secuie as to preclude the possibility of nocident without involving negligence on the part of tbe plaintiff It thejnrv shall tlud from the testimony that the barric: de in this ca?e was insufficient protection. but that tbe injury was nevertheless superinduced by the negligence of the plaintiff the plaintiff is not entitled to recover. RIf.-srs. Davirije and Kendall appeared lor the pluihtiff, and Messrs Bradley and Bradley lor the defendant. To the latter part ol the tirst instruction ot the Court Mr. Bradlev reserved an exception. The jury,after being ont about half an hour, returned a verdict for the plaintiff, awarding him damages.
