COURT OF SESSIONS - The People vs. C. PRIOR, for injuring jail, demurrer to
indictment sustained on the ground that the facts charged do not constitute
a public offence, within the meaning of the Statute, relative to breaking
jail.  The People vs. C. PRIOR, for resisting an officer - verdict of
guilty, with recommendation to mercy.  Motions for new trial and in arrest
of judgment were made, and taken under advisement until 17th of August.
The People vs. E.A. ROWE, for perjury - indictment quashed on the ground
that it was prematurely found, the civil suit in which the alleged perjury
was committed being still pending.  Court adjourned to 17th August.

SONS OF TEMPERANCE - Very much to our regret, we inadvertently omitted to
notice in our last the installation of officers for the present quarter, of
Mountain Dell Division No. 74, S. of T.  On the 2d. inst., the following
officers were installed: J.D. ROSE, W.O., L. WILLIAMS, W.A.; Wm. LASWELL,
R.S.; J.S. BOLLINGER, A.R.S.; John LAWRENCE, F.S.; L. SAMPSON, T.; D.
SAMPSON, C.; Thos. BEEBE, A.C.; A. KENT, I.S.; A. TEAGUE, O.S.; and Joseph
EMERY, Chaplain.
The Dashaways appear to be the popular Temperance organization just now in
the large cities, and are doing much good.  Here we have no such
institution, but slowly and surely this Division is advancing in the good
cause its members have espoused, and in the vicinity of Woodside, where it
is located, its influence is very perceptibly felt.

COUNTY COURT - In the case of the People vs. Job RICHARDS, appealed to this
Cout, the judgment of the Court below was confirmed.
