At the last term of the Orange county a new York court the following ease was Neil upon glue i the jury was ii j by the defendant who had concluded to a Pear in his own defence t j the people is. James Aller Lenthis w was a very interesting Case rendered so from the fact that the defendant acted As his own a lawyer on the trial without having the and h Vantage of Heing one of the Legal fraternity. Llis summing up of which we Are Able to give nearly a verbatim report with the exception of the acting was decidedly j Slimy a Prueti Maui Enuine Uichi ii Legal gentlemen present. The deft who is w a Small red haired thin specimen of a Van w Kee was indicted for an assault and Battery a on one . Dodder. The facts As i h Vul cd upon trial Are briefly As follows a the defendant is in the employ of the Mon Gap Valley Forrest Birga 1 Ort Jervis l Lauk w Road company As a toll gatherer and re sides upon the Road some Miles above port a Jervis. Lie and the complainant . Dod , Are near neighbors. To on a sunday in february last , a complainant in the act of beating a his deft s cows along the Highway and As 8, an inducement for him to quit hurled a few to stones at him one of which As the com at Plain ant testified struck him on the Back.

Lint there in t any of them that .11 i i a lilt Luc Usu tells us Iii is Lank Road. It let out to civilization a class of peo Ledio never before realized the idea that there As such a thing As civilized life and this dodder is one of them. It is a fact that Noli after 1 moved there a Young woman7 years old cum Down out of the inti Intenson the l Lank Road one Day and said lie had never been out before. She fairly clued surprised to see a White Man an Diter asking a few questions went Back intone Woods. This dodder was neighbor and a Good Deal nearer than i wanted him and l Laud t been there Long before i eard he had been lying about to one of be directors and 1 soon found out he anted to get his son who was sworn Here against place. But lie Han t o e yet and if you Don t convict 1 reckon i nun i Vita Soroll. It won t take Long to dispose of dodder of. 2. He testifies that lie saw throw rec stones at his father Ami saw the old tan on his Cross examination he Tys lie was in his own House in the Woods had to look Over a Hill Twenty feet High and also Over three slab in pcs and two Stone alls. Well if he tells the truth All i wish that i had Young dodder s eyes lie i mainly a remarkable boy and can t his "father."1 am willing to admit that i done wrong throw stones at dodder and i apologise All the would and this county particularly to it. The doctors Tell us that their Are to causes for All diseases predisposition Anflic stability i think it a is the latter cause i ii. Us Iii Una i Asitim l outer. I in fuss myself guilty of the assault but a Loci Tilery 1 , sunt if y u find guilty i l Jle Battery i will Appeal from tin decision the court of Iii Jii heaven itself before will submit to it. Now gentlemen you saw . Dodder Anjard Liim swear against . I asked Liim great Many questions and i was sorry t sir Liim answer As lie did. 1 might have ked Liim if he did t kill rat and if i Eide t Stone Erie Keiss because they tres Isamedin his Woods where actually the Rock e so thick that the brakes can t Iii id their a though them but then i knew lie Ould deny it and it would Grieve to Ijuro Linin. Lie admits that he was driving y three cows up the Road and that lie Ruck at one of Vin but says it was with a Nail switch. I have proved that this switch As a pole about ten feet Long and about Iree inches across the butt end and i have so proved tar tit when he struck the cow ii. It is True witness could t swear lat the stick hit her he was so far off Butic the blow Anc Tjie fall together and we guess the Reolf st you gentlemen should a Point at a Man and pull thei Ger see the Nash and hear the , an the same time Sec the Man drop i think 3u would Sny that i shot him although i might not see the Ball strike him. Now the fact is gentlemen that on Sun a i was lying on lounge in inv House Hen Iny wife said to that dodder was lasing cows. I jumped up and pulled it boots and went out of doors and saw odder and the cows coming up the True to says lie was not driving them it flys he and the cows was both going Ong the Road in one direction and this As As near As i could get Linin to the cows the truth but it is proved that the cows Ere going ahead of dim and lie was striking at them with his title ten feet Long acid three inches a butt and i reckon you ii think lie Ling the Epa. 1 Sung out to him atop " a he did t obey Ori just threw a atone in that i recon a Titch want about ten feet Over his Ooi Ivictor so for Lam n Fajr of the a Iron As &.
