Beecher a she said a i shall sacrifice in v husband and deny i said a will you allow your husband 0o go Down with the truth a she said Quot i Thlik i a hould be to Stipd in stating falsely under the circumstances. I think everything of or. Beech is and for the Sake of five times married. A Wisconsin Frk Achino the ooh al Dor not pro vent a k8vbrbnd scamp from marrying five women. The Larossa Democrat give the following a the record of a reverend pretender in that state the Rev. Or. Jonea alias Stone steel an Advent minister who Baa been doing Aonie pretty Tail preaching Thia Winter up at the Corker in the town of Farmington this county is wanted by the father of Hia last wife. In fact he is wanted so badly that the so Oriel and under sheriff of Trent to Tea ii county our own sheriff and two deputies Are new Roitina in All the spare Lime they have in looking Lor him but so far the search has been in vain. If our information is Correct this Reva and rent i i a Muchley married Man. It Moemon that a year ago be used to live in Hanover n. Y., where be married Hia Firat wife. He Yoou abandoned Ber and moved to Andover in the same state where be soon married another wife and yet the Firat one was living. He soon became tired of a 2, and came what to grow up with the country and settled in win com Minn. Here he married a girl which a wife no. 3, and she soon died. He a legitimately widowed that tini but soon had married another wife no 4. A daughter of or. Wiley of that Filacc. Still being of a r Vin disposition be Eft her and came Over to Wisconsin. In Winona he preached under the name of the Rev. Jones Bat once on Thia aide of the River he addressed i followers under the a tic of Rev. Bonest kill e soon Mart led age Lnu Wile no. 6, a daughter of or. Guardie living Alx Miles above gala Burgh. And went up to the Corners in Farmington and a been preaching Thero regularly this Winter. La the meantime or. Handfe found out something of the reverend gentleman history swore out a warrant and put the offi Oora after him but Tho wily husband of five wive four of whom Are now living a and out of Hia pulpit at the Corner last week and ban not Wen seen since and in consequence there a no meeting held at the above Piare last Sabbath. We have no doubt that while he i Nitu ngon the a dragged Edge he Winabee a dead by this time and a perhaps Solilo quizzing that be May have Proe Chod Hia last Sermon. If he is found there will not be much difficulty in proving the charges As the two last wives Are living within 20 Miles of each other. Us Advent in any new locality waa generally signalized by taking unto himself a new wife until now he flee from All and May yet be heard or in new a afield and pastures Green a when it would Heem no. 6 will be in order. Thus Haa another shining Light been extinguished and we have no idea that even a Brooklyn jury would when he a brought to trial acquit him. It is indeed too bad. And we retrain from further remarks this time. A Boston correspondent writing of Lester Wallack a present engagement in that City says Lestar Wallack is drawing Well at the Boston. He is less a Good actor with advancing years because he is More sell conscious. It i hard to say where Thia will end if be a Ontina a to act. The advertisers critic make a palpable hit in critic Ming him a a Lover when it say it is Impo Wil in a to conceive so very Ooi a gentleman As Iff lot with anybody but Frima Elythe crime of seduction. The killing of a skd17cbr jul Tif Isdr a Cali Kornia jury think that atty bib Dor served rights a Kim aft Aiila sensation in court. The correspondent of the new York Sun writing from Napa cal., gives the following account of a remarkable trial in that state the closing queue of the trial of Uxbridge for the Ninder of Harry Lar Kyna were of a remarkable character. The jury retired at 11 of clock last night. It was the Genenie expectation that they would return with a verdict of act Nuttal within an boar and the Spectator who had thronged the court room ail Day waited to Bear it but a the hours rolled on. And the sound of Load and eur meet Dir cation continued in the jury room they slowly departed to their Homes and Muy Bridge a t Keu Back to jail for the night. On retiring to their room the jury stood five Lor conviction and seven for acquittal. Thi morning a second ballot a taken with the name result. The difference Between them was on the question of insanity. Few if any. Believed Muy Bridge insane but the majority contended that sane or insane he was justified in killing Markyna for having seduced Hia wife. On Thi Broad ground they finally All met. And then the Only quarrel waa la regard to the form of the verdict whether it should be simply a not Gilly a or a not guilty on account of upon this they differed Long rat the majority contending that Muy Bridga a not insane. They finally carried their Point and at noon to Day a verdict waa reached. The sheriff was apprised of the fact and be secretly notified the judge and counsel. Muy Bridge was then taken into court and the jury having returned their heals the clerk called their names and then inquired a gentlemen of the jury have you agreed upon a verdict a the Foreman arose and replied a we have a at the same time passing to the clerk a Alipot paper. The clerk unfolded it amid a silence like the stillness of death Usoon tents. Then he Daf ised it to the judge who read it and returning it to the clerk said a genl Lemmeu of the jury is that your Verdi j 7�?� the Foreman i. Is. The judge to the clerk a record the verdict or. Clerk. The pen of the clerk flew nervously Over the paper for a Tew moment while ail eve it were fastened Apon him the prisoner sing like a stator Bis eyes fixed in a Stony stare and not a muscle moving under the tension of excitement. Suddenly the pen of the clerk ceased moving and arising the scribe said Reading from the Book a gentlemen of the jury listen to your verdict As it stands recorded a people is. Muy Bridges we the jury find the defendant not at the Anand of the last momentous words a convulsive Gap escaped the prisoner s Lipa and be Sank Forward from Hia chair. The Metal and nervous tension that sustained him for Days of Uncertain Fate waa removed in an instant and be became a helpless As s Newborn babe. Or. Pendergast caught Bim in Bis arms and Tina prevented Bis falling to the floor but Hia body a Limp an a wet cloth. Hia emotion became convulsive and frightful. His Eye Wero Glassy his jaws set and Bis face livid. To veins of Hie hands and forehead swelled out like whip Ord. He moaned and wept convulsively. But uttered no word of pain or rejoicing. Such a display of overpowering emotion has Seldom if Ever been witnessed in a Courtot Justice. Tho floodgate of feeling scorned suddenly to Lave been lifted and the Long pent up tar remt of emotion to have burst upon the Man sweeping All before it. He rocked to and fro in his chair. I Tam a absolutely horrifying in it contortions is convulsion succeed convulsion. The judge diet charge to jury and hastily left the court room unable to Bear Tho eight and it became neck Eazary to recall him subsequently to finish the proceed Tig. The clerk hid his face in i handkerchief while the prosecuting attorney and Lorae of the jurors harried away to avoid the spectacle. Others gathered around to Calm the prisoner Aud Alt of them were moved to tears. Muy Bridge at last by a powerful Effort controlled his emotion and in fifteen minutes waa a Leto go non the Street. The judge was to bin retailed to the Bench and on motion of counsel for the defense Muy Bridge formally discharged irom custody. In the uni time the stews of the Aeq citral bad reacted the Street where it spread rapidly. A Large crowd gathered in front of the court room and a Muy Bridge descended the Steps a tree Man they cheered vociferously and Long. Huwa surrounded by the crowd every Man of which a be tend anxious to congratulate him tint. Then they went off to find the jury men and congratulate them. The town a never before in Auch state of few Eric i excitement. Nothing but the verdict was discussed. The Aati fac lion with the verdict a it very nearly unanimous but a few while admitting that Muy Bridge should not be Oever Elv tin foxed Oon eroded that Hie acquittal was in Defiance of Law and would encourage others to dred of blood. A sort of provincial Pride on their aide was involved in the matter Ard for the Good name of the county they said they fait sorry to Aee homicide go no punished hut these were in an insignificant minority. The verdict is a sort of new departure in snob cases an abandonment of to Insani y theory under the disguise of which homicide for the cause assigned in Thi Cue has so often been justified by american juries. On retiring to their room the jury were Given four form of verdict by the judge. One was guilty of murder in the first degree pull it Able by death and another fixing the penalty a imprisonment for life a third of not guilty and the last not guilty because of defendants insanity. They were very pointedly instructed by the judge that it Larky is seduced defendants wife the defendant a not justified in taking to Law into his own hands and slaying the seducer. The de Tenne recognising Thi a Good taw net up the theory that defendant waa acting under an irresistible passion or Insano impulse arising from the discovery of i wife s infidelity. The fury d a added entirely the theory of insanity and meeting the Case on the litre Issue left acquitted the defendant on the ground that be a justified in killing Markyna for seducing Bis wife. They say that if their verdict was not in Accord with the Law of the books it is with the Law of human nature that in Short under similar Circum Tancos they would have done a Muy Bridge did and they could not conscientiously punish him for doing what they would have done themselves.
