THE COURTS. 4 Bailiff Accused of Corrupting a Jury. End of the Great Eailroad Construe. tion Case. A Precocious Thief Sent to tbo Reform ScliooL Xbe case of Martin y. Day, which was tried in judge Eogers\ Court some weeks Bince, and was closely watched by a large-proportion of the in habitants of the town of Lemont, came up again In Judge Rogers 1 . Court ouSaturday, on a motion by plaintiff for a now trial. The original case . was brought ‘by .Martin against Day to recover damages for malicious prosecution, and resulted jd favor of defendant. ’ The motion for new trial Is based on the usual grounds, .with an additional . count in the nature of a charge against one of the baßiiTa of this Court of tampering with one of the jurymen after they had been locked up -to con sider theirverdict. Tins accusation is supported by four affidavits. Michael Devanny’s -affidavit asserts that he was present during the trial of Martin v. Day, and that he became familiar with the facial peculiarities of all the bailiffs of ~ the Court, and of the jury trying the case; that after the jury had retired, at about noon, he saw. the bailiff go to the jury-room, take out a Jury* . man, lead him along a passage of the court to a room at the end of the hall, and remain in there with birn for about six minutes, at the some time ' cautioning all people not to approach, evidently, as affiant alleges, with the intention of keeping them in blissful ignorance of the insidious con versation be was pouring into the juror's ear; that, within a short quarter of an hour after :tho return of the juror to the jury-room, the jury returned a verdict in favor of defendant, which affiant evidently believes was the result of .the interview between bailiff and juror, rather than the twelve men’s honest convictions after argu ing the*' points of the case. Similar affidavits were sworn to by Nicholas Poole, Edward Martin, .and W. N.'Bigelow. THE BAILBOJU? CON'BTBUCTIOK CASE. The case of 31. T. Seymour & Co . v.' Phillips and Colby,. Eailroad Construction Company, which has taken up the attention of the United States Circuit Court for nearly a fortnight past, was concluded oh Saturday; Tins is an action of covenant based on a contract for the construc tion of about 160 miles of the Wisconsin Central Bsilroad Company’s line from Stevens’ Point to Penokee. Gap.. Plaintiffs claim that they were carrying on,work successfully up to about the 15th of December, 1871, when they had com pleted 53 miles of the road, the contract, how ever, specifiying that 100 miles had to be built by that date. They aver that defendant had ex pressed satisfaction with the progress .mode, but at the time aforementioned, while owing - plaintiffs $250,000, they sud denly gave notice f their .'inability' to pay moneys past due, or that might become due under the contract, which made it necessary for plaintiffs to cease operations, whereby they lost the benefit of their, preparation to • go on with thework, and had to dispose of their stock sup plies, give up supply road, horses, teats, etc,, . andlost the benefit of. sub-contracts, to aloes to plaintiffs, including moneys duo, of $500,000. The charge of the Court submitted to the juty, as questions which were to be determined before making any allowance to plaintiffs, whether de fendants had' excused plaintiffs’ non-perform - anca of contract up to tno time of the alleged notice of financial inability on defendants’ part: and also stated to tho jury, in case they found for plaintiff, what claims should or might enter into the verdict, these being chiefly estimates of ' engineers, including 15 per cent of money usual ly reserved, and an additional $15,000, hold as security also, sundry items not estimated for by the engineers and umpire and costa of sup ply road, loss'on houses, huts, tools, tents, etc. The charge also instructed for defendants in favor of an offset for payments to laborers of plaintiff and for supplies for men and laborers of sub-contractors amounting to $38,482.75. The .items claimed for by plaintiff amounted to $157,- 240.83, but a large number of these, amounting to several thousand dollars, were excluded by the Court, who excluded also all claim for loss of profit on part oL either party to the suit. The case went to the jury at noon, and at 8 o’clock ’they returned their verdict. This document stated that with regard to the special findings the jury found that defendant had excused flaintiirs default at-the time‘of tho alleged reach of. covenant; that defendant had ’ admitted *to plaintiff at that - time. that they were financially unable to make the pay ; meats and would continue so to: be; that de fendant agreed to pay plaintiff extra costs for doing the earth work between Sections 40 and 46, and that the extra cost ($11,408) should be. added to verdict ... • The general verdict was In fovor of, plaintiff, damages $107,353.44. - ?"t—•- CRIMINAL COURT ITEMS. * ' The Township 88 contested School Trustee election case, known 1 as People ex reL John R. Lewis v. G.~ W. Wait, came up before Judge. on Saturday. The contents of tho plain tiffs’ bill have already been published in The Tribune, charging that the election of Wait was ; illegal and void on account of various reasons/ the principal reasons that the election was held at a place other than that designated ‘in the notice, and that :th© ballot ' boxes were not examined ,at .the conclusion of the vote, but carried off by defendants. The.defendants yesterday filed affi davits urging that the change of place of the election was caused by their inability to find the - key of the school-house ; and assert that-the plaintiff was 'present at the election at Ely’s house, and voted there.. The counsel for dho plaintiff read a number of authorities in support. of his bill when the Court declared its intention of taking the matter under advisement. Tile State’s Attorney yesterday filed an infor mation against Edward J. Eddie, the incorrigible 17 year old son of. a highly respectable citizen, at whose request the boy was arrested. The charge was one of stealing $1.75 in money and a $4 borse-pistol, the property of one Stephen -Con-L ndh. The prisoner pleaded guilty, and was sent to the Eeform School for eighteen months. - : ~ THE COURTS CONDENSED, . Li Judge Harwell’s Court the case of Jeremiah Pickley v. Margaret Pickley came up. This was a divorce suit, and Judge Harwell is particular in such matters, and never issnos a- dividing de-. cree until be has probed matters to the. bottom. r A week ago the case was before the Court, when, the Judge hearing that tho defendant was not in Chicago and was ignorant of the proceedings against her, continued the case until Saturday, in order to obtain the evidence of a sister of. defendant’s in the case. The witness, a * Mrs. "Donahue, was on hand, and submitted in evi dence that Mrs. Pickley was living in Philadel phia and bad no knowledge of the fact that her • flnfiband.was seeking a separation. Tho Court elicited these facts ‘from the witness, and gave the counsel for plaintiff his choice between * two methods of proceeding, either to mate out a - copy of the bill and U to Mrs. Donahue for trana .. mission to the defendant, or allow'the Court to proceed with his examination of his witness. The former course proved more palatable to the •attorney • who engaged to-provide the witness with the interesting document, so that at the next hearing of the case Mrs. P. will probably be on hand to have her say in the matter. 'LI Judge.Gary’s court, in the case of Bob., '-Simpson v. Jodah Lombard, there issued a de cree of mortgage on Blocks 5 and 15, and all of Lots 12 to 48, and Block 17 in S. J.

SATUEDAY SIGHT'S TVOEE. Tho Condition of Larsen, Stabbed by .;S3Lis Wife, Still Precarious-—Desper ate Cutting Affray in. a Wright Street Saloon* The condition of the victim of the stabbing affray, at the' comer of Jefferson and Carroll -streets, the_detafls'of which appeared in The Tejbukx of yesterday morning, was unchanged at a late hour .last night. In the morning he' web better, and strong hopes were entertained of his recovery. But, from some indescretion' the wound was opened afresh during the day, and bled so copiously that ■when the physician arrived he said the-result would be fatal* The man conversed freely about the affray, but bis version of it does not differ materially from that published yesterday. It is the old story of a household rained and made bloody by whisky. Mrs. Larsen, having recovered from her de bauch, was In a very penitent and regretful mood, when onr reporter saw her yesterday afternoon. She freely admitted that she stabbed ber husband, with a knife, which later, she said was used abont the house to cut kindling. She could not toll what eho did with it. She appear ed to regret more the condition of her children, than that of her husband. This woman ought to be skilled in the use of the knife, since she used'it last summer in the same locality, to end tho life of a*man named Hay. She stabbed him in the armband would have done worse, if she had not been restrained. ANOTHER OP THE SAME KIND. The 'woman Larsen, at the comer of Carroll and Jefferson streets, had hardly withdrawn the knife from her husband’s body, when an encoun ter of the same nature occurred at No. 54 Wright street. Thepartieato the affair were John Keefe, who was the assailant, and Dennis Haber and Peter Dormoly, who. were the assailed. The building above referred to is a boarding-house, connected with which is a bar. Anticipating the 11 o’clock ordinance, these three young men be gan to guzzle liquor soon after sunset, and, by 11 o’clock, were completely under its influence. An old fend had separated Keefe and Halier for some time, but, having de cided to drown the matter in pn Unlimited quan tity of liquor, they sat down in the saloon to carry out their good resolves. But their firm fealty to com juice destroyed all the leniency which had tinctured their regard for one another, and after the use of some violent language, they resolved to settle the matter by “ wager of bat tle," and accordingly clinched- In the scuffle, Keefe drew a dirk knife, and cut Maher severely in the wrist. Dormly, fearing that Keefe meant to inflict further injury with the deadly weanon, interfered to separate the combatants. But his efforts met with no appreciation from Keefe, who enraged at his action, again . drew his dirk, this time cutting an ugly gash in Dorm ly’s neck, on the right side. . Both men being disabled, Keefe quietly put the knife in his pocket, and went out into the street About 12 o’clock Sergeant O’Donnell, of tbe Twelfth Street Station, was informed of the affray, and at half-past la.m. had Keefe locked up. Yes terday afternoon he was removed to the Madi son Street Station, and this morning will appear before Justice Scully on the charge of commit ting an assault with intent to kill. Dr. Boot, who attended the wounded parties, pronounced their injuries serious, but not necessarily fatal. WALKED OUT OF.GHURGH.I An Unusual Occurrence at Trinity Episcopal. ;i; - A Chicago Times • Eeporter Ejected - From the Building. ,; j ‘Vicissitudes of the Man Who : “ Walks Among the Churches.” If there is in this world one Church, the aer •vice and ceremony of which ia, moire than any other, intricate' and puzzling to anon-church-, goer, it ia the Episcopalian. The frequent ups and downs, the occasional genuflexions,' ond'tho übiquitous responses, never fail to create a maze in the mind of him who has been accustomed to .follow a simpler, form .of. .worship,' while to - ther, infidel, who never attends church at all, the effect is almost and the beauties of the grand old litany are lost -completely and over shaaowed by the over-recurring meditation of <f What must Ido next ?” Such an unfortunate was the observed of ail ■'observers in Trinity Church yesterday morning. A sad-visagod young man, whose clothes, in'contrast with the elegant get-ups of the members of the congregation, suggested a penurious employer and a very light weekly remuneration, walked up the middle aisle, a short, time before the services began, and took a seat in one of the centre pews.. Hia com-: plexion was the hectic flush of a consumption superinduced by lack of- healthy * nutriment, rather than the ruddy glow of a man whose daily work is such as to cause hia blood to circulate with generous freedom through his veins. With the timid air of a man who ia occupied in arjob which he don’t half like, he glanced. furtiyely around, and, seeing some of the male congrega- .$ 85.00 ,•*. 176.87 . 275.00 , 12.00 ' 612.00 L2d5.53 250.00 ‘ 1,500.00 10,028.29 ' 375,00 - 15.50 15.00 177.50 83.00 77.00 33.00 65.50 ......$15,236J.9 tiou, freshly arrived, .dip their faces for a minute in their hats, with a -blissful ignorance of what it meant, and, glad of the excuse to hide his features, ho dug his face into his hat and kept it there for a long ten minutes. During the service his motions were peculiarly erratic. It .was evident he was not at home. - When the congregation, “ with one consent,” arose; ho gazed around in silent bewilderment, and, when he did adapt himself to circumstances, it was as if in an apparent endeavor to make up for lost time; with the sudden energy, of a released “ Jack in the Box,” that,he did bo. Daring the reading of the firstleason he leaned over to a gray-haired, venerable old gentleman sitting in front of him, and shocked the poor old church goers feelings, by asking Idm “ What author the gentleman with the 'white necktie was reading from.”. ‘While the Belief ’ was being read, the unfortunate, misplaced man was gazing long and earnestly at a young lady whoso ‘ pew was at right angles to his own, and who, in common with the rest 'of the congregation,* bowed at the proper moment. This was mis taken for a recognition, and the religious old gentleman, whose ■ sonorous responses led , the misplaced man to conclude that he was a deacon, or elder, was again questioned as to the adora ble’s name. M Strange,” muttered the misplaced: “ Can’t say I know her; -evidently smitten, ’’ and the hectic flush deepened as he realized the immensity of his imaginary conquest. During the rest of the service the misplaced man’s conduct was in keeping. When the congregation stood, he sat ; when they eat, ho stood, erect and blushing, Him a scarlet dahlia in a bed of balsams. When they littered a response, he caught the words and re peated them loudly after they had finished; and once or twice, at the conclusion of the beautiful church-music, he just managed to stay himself from foot-stamping. What wonder, then, that, before the service was half concluded, the mis placed man was the observed of all observers,— tno cause of frowns on the part of the male part of tho congregation, and of tho most sarcastic sneers on the part of tho ladies. Worse -was to corao, however. The church-service was concluded, and the minister, 'the Ilev. Edward Sullivan took his place* in the pul pit. Simultaneously with the introductory pray er, the misplaced man withdrew a note-book and jack-knife from his pocket, and placing the point of his lead-pencil on the pew-door, sliced away at the lead, and brought it to the requisite - sharpness. The noise attracted the notice of minister and congregation, who, however, paid it no further attention. The text was announced, the sermon was begun, and the Times reporter, he who sneaks among the black sheep of the city congregations and collects slanders of the other black sheep/ began to take notes. The misplaced man was misplaced no longer; his oc cupation had ' begun; but, alas, how soon to be ended I Ere he had taken a dozen notes, the rich, melodious, half brogue of the minister, assuming an unaccus tomed loudness and severity that startled'the congregation from entry to altar, and fcU like a death-knell on the reporter’s ear, burst forth: “ Are you taking notes for the Times ?” These were tho simple words which the minister ut tered, while in response, from the pew where sat the trembling, almost paralyzed, reporter came in pipping; - quavering tones, :'*• Yes sir/ please sir; Mr. Scoreysays-r-” The rest of the response was lost in the minister’s rejoinder, Then I re queat yoa not to stay. I understand that, the Trinity Church congregation occupied. 1 a very - prominent ; place in ‘ the columns •of the Times this morning- and, although I not read the article, , I presume it partook of the scurrilous nature of the articles which have preceded it. I mast*, therefore, request the' representative of that paper to.cease taking notes, or withdraw from the Church.” Tho. minister • then resumed hia sermon, and the unfortunate reporter, the dread of dismissal hanging like a Daznpelean sword over his head, resumed taking notes. The hot Irish, blood of the preacher was ..now; fairly aroused, -yet he commanded himself - admira-- bly, and told the reporter that what ever he had before said boro ho reference to him personally/ but simply to him In his offi cial capacity. He then gently but firmly asked: . “Are you going to leave the church, or not ? ” The unhappy man obeyed tho Washington • street instructions, and disregarded more sensible suggestion which came from, the pulpit. . He remained rooted to his* seat. Several gentlemen in the congregation ‘half-.‘rose as if with a determination of suddenly sewing, upon a writ of ejectment,, when tho poor young man seized his hat and departed.

The Subject-matter of Farm-Gate* Considered—A Gate on a Coster* Holler—Sliding on Wood—Xbe Old Swingr-Gate • Tho Double-Roller Sliding: Gate* and How It is Con structed— Self-Actinff Gates and Old* Fasbioned. Bars—The weather and the Crops. ■From Our Atjrieultural Correspondent* Champion, 111, May 17,1873. A good, substantial fann-gato—one that docs not gab out of order, that will not sag, is easy opened and closed, that is stock-proof, is not ex pensive, and has little regard to snow-drif fcs— IS A DESIDEEATUM to any farmer. Just such a gate “ The 3?arm and Garden 1 * bos sought after for many long years, and one such has at length been found* and is now the standard gate for “ Rural Home. 11 *lt is strange that we pass by the simple, use ful things of this life, and seek for some com plex, ill-arranged affair, and yet, in the end, we* ' come back to appreciate the plain, useful things that we had so long overlooked. . : This, is par ticularly the case in regard to farm-gates. Pat ent after patent has been taken out . for these gates, and the farmers have been swindled ab libitum,; ad nauseam. * This has disgusted people with patent gates to that extent that a peddler of these patents is in danger, of bodily harm when he presents the subject to the fahner, and especially ifhe'ahould mention 1 ' ' ELIDING GATES . ' , . to him, for. ho is sensitive on that subject. Every little while we hear of some patent-man making a raid on the farmers who are usings eliding gate. Sometimes they get the coveted $5 for the claimed 'infringement, sometimes they are promised it after the. case, is fully, in vestigated, and sometimes they are ordered off the premises ins tauter, and they leave, muttering vengeance in a suit before the District Court of the United States, but somehow they manage to salvo over their offended dignity and the tramp ling down of their rights, and pass on to some other rural neighborhood and repeat their < de , m&nda; but’ thus far I have never heard that a suit has followed these threats. - Sometime in.1856 or ’7, I saw a. farm-gate on. the sliding plan, that rested on a sort of - CASTEB-WHEEL OB POLLY . ’ ) ; attached to the gate-post. The gates were made double, —that is, each part filled half of the space when closed; the sections were shoved back over this caster-roller some three or four feet, and then turned one-fourth around on the caster, thus leaving the space open. At the time, I thought that was a good gate, and' in tended to obtain the castings and the right; the castings were hold at $2 per gate; but I lost the address, and bave never seen or board of that precise plan for a gate since that time, a' period of some sixteen or seventeen years, and the patent for which, if any, must have nearly or quite expired. Soon after that time, wo had what has been known as the sliding gate. Instead of the caster-wbeol, an extra gate-post is sot a few Inches from the other, and a cross board uniting the two, on which the gate is made to slide, and is turned one-fourth around in order to open it; the only difference in the two being THE BOABO INSTEAD OP TEE BOLLEB. And, for this latter gate, the farm-rights are claimed by the patent-right perambulators. 'Whether both are claimed under the same patent, I cannot say, but it is not probable that either would risk a suit on their originality, as similar sliding gates have been used for many years prior to the issuing of such patents. About the date first mentioned, I saw a sliding gate on the farm of A. B. WHITNEY, OF LEE COUNTY. That gate rested on two iron sheaes, or rollers, 8 inches in diameter, and 1% inches thick. This gate was also in two panels,and each filled half of ’ the space of the roadway. The gate was simple, strong, cheap, and durable, but I was then look ing for a better and more ornate gate for my farm, and so, in the meantime, until ench a gate was brought forth, I put up the old swing-gato, with a gate-post a dozen feet long, \)4 feet in diameter, and set in the ground at least 4 feet deep; the gate-post itself costing more than the gate-posts and iron-rollers of that of Mr. Whit ney. Since that time I bave looked at all the fairs for the coming farm-gate, but IT DID NOT CO3IE. Year after year a new'crop of gates has sprung ’ up only to give place toothers, and to-day we make a sad show in the way of farm gates. Our Agricultural College farms ore no better supplied than others, probably for the same rea son stated above, that they have their ideas fixed upon an ornamental, cheap, durable, and easily managed gate. In December last, I made another visit to my old friend, Whitney, of the great apple orchard, and had occasion to pass through the SAWB OLD SLIDING GATE. ♦ “ That is the cheapest and; best gate that was ever put on a farm, 11 said Mr. Whitney, as, with a shovo, it went back on the rollers. “ And, would you think,” he continued, ** that, after using this kind of gate for more than twenty years, a mild-looking young man came' along ono day and claimed that be was the agent of the Satentee, and demanded $5 for the farm-right. >f course I was indignant, and told’ him to get off the premises at once, and, if I heard of him in the neighborhood attempting to collect for farm-rights on his pretended patent, I would have him arrested as a swindler and a black-mailer. The young man disappeared, and 1 have heard nothing of mm or his pretend ed patent since. Why, the gate was used on this farm before the young gentleman was born.” It is possible that a fanner may inadvertently use a legitimate patent, for which he ought to pay the inventor; but such a case is so improb able that he should not pay any claim of the ; kind until after a full investigation; and this • matter is also one that it is a duty for the granges ■ and farmers 1 clubs TO INVESTIGATE, and, if found to bo a swindle, prosecution should follow; for, as a general thing, these fellows get away with what money they manage to wheedle out of the people. These scoundrels should not be permitted to go unwhipped of justice. , . nr THE MAKING of this rolling or sliding gate, we need ordinarily a four-panel gate,—that is, where the fence is three or four boards to the panel,—farm-stock, but not hog or sheep, proof. In case the latter is required also, more boards must be put in the panel. If four pieces of fencing, of fl inch width, are used, these will make a panel i feet wide. The four pieces of fencing are laid on the ground. at proper distances, and three battens cut from fencing, 4 feet long each, are used to form the panel, one at each end and one in the middle. Those are nailed to each piece with four ■ 8-penny wrought nails, and clinched; in addition to this, four 2>4 inch, % inch carriage-bolts should bo used at the inside end of -each panel. This will insure the gate against ordinary accident, and serve to make it much more durable. Ef BEOABO TO BOIXEBS, as I could not find those suitable at the hard ware stores, I called at the foundry, and had a pattern made, and enough cast for ten gates, which require four to a gate, or, in all, forty rollers. These rollers wore made 4 inches in diameter, with a surface of IK inches, and so turned out between the centre and the rim that they weigh but little oyer 2 pounds each. But I made one mistake in giv ing the' order for the castings, as I had the . hole in the centre cast with a %-inch core instead of.having them cast solid and the bolt> hole bored.- The result is, that the pulleys are not true when set in the gate, as they would have been had they been bored fora K-inoh car riage-bolt. I had the castings made at Crane Bros., in Chicago, where the pattern is left. If cast solid, they will be found about right. But a pattern can be cheaply made at any foundry shop in the country, and the castings supplied. In case they weighed double, the cost would not be a serious one, probably 10 or 12 cents a pound for the castings end boring. The rollers are placed on the gate-posts, one inch below the top of the upper fence-board, and are kept in place by a batten bolted to the post; a 10-inch ar-inch carriage-bolt answering the purpose. When the panels are'put up, the top will be 5 inches higher than the fence; and, as an ordina ry post-and-board fence is made i feet and 2 inches high, the too of the gate will be i feet and 7 inches from the ground- This extra height will prevent animals from attempting to jump over the gate, which they often do when the gate is of the same height as the fence. The other roller is placed on the post next the gate post. the suteeiax, for s gale may be stated as follows : Eight pieces 16 feet 6 Inch fencing, for panels; 4 16 feet 6 inch fencing, for battens; 4 cast-tr oh xoQen, 4 # 10 inch carriage bolts, 8 inch car riage bolts, I lb fid clinch-nails, 1 fit 20d cut nails, 1 gate hasp. The two lengths of the fence on which the gate panels are to be placed mnst he in line, in order to hare the panels ran free and to meet in the centre, when the; are fastened with a common ham-door hasp, . ' . ' t I think that, with this, description, any farmer who in accustomed to tho use of the saw, anger, and hammer, can make one of those gates with oat any difficulty. ism gate cannot be blown open by tbo wind. nor can any farm animal open it: and when it is closed it is secure. It cannot sag, for there are no hinges to give way. It cannot slam to in the wind, for the wind can at no time have an advantage on its leverage, as the long end is at least 110 against 6 feet, and secured to the fence itself. •It is not liable to be broken down by farm-animals, as it is higher than the fence, and the panels are too strong to give way to their weight. It’.will seldom be blocked by tho snow, for the snow seldom dnfts against the fence, bnt two or three feet from it, leaving the gate free as in summer. The rollers are never clogged with' snow or" ice, for they are at the top of thtj fence, and .out of the reach of any such obstruction. Take it, all-' in-aii, it is the best farm-gate I have seen, and, what is more, I do not think it possible for any party to load any part of it with a patent-fee or farm-right. If any man in this State ever had a right .to a patent on it it is the father of Mr. A. Whitney, of Lee County, to whom allusion'haa beenmedo. . . Every reader of tbe “Farm and Garden”.who wishes improve hia farm-gatca will do .well to cut this out, and give it a place in scrap book for future reference. * SELF-Aonso GATES. Of an the clap-traps for the entrance to! the farmstead, . the self-acting gates are the culmi nation, and shonld rank next to the OLD-FASHIONZD tuh* ' that, in boyhood, wo were wonttotake down one by one, drive through, and theu return in place. I have both bars and self-acting gates innumer able in mind,' and place them on a par iu value. The latter cost .a large sum to put up and to keep in repair,—that is, if it be possible to keep them in working order,—a thing, that I have hot as . yet seen attained. The former cost little at' the start, but ou a continual annoyance and waste of time in opening and closing, and thebT they are never safe against tho ingenuity of poaching cattle, and neighborly pigs. , In the old Puritan days, there were two things at least, that excused a man for saying bird words: One when a hail-storm beat down the farmer's crops, and the other when tho cattle .broke down the bora and feasted on the young com and. other crops. . The one we have a show now to guard against; but against the had wo have no consolation to offer. t ' Should the gate above described come into gen eral use, the hardware men will no doubt keep on hand for sale rollers of the most approved patterns.
