HORSE  CASE  IS  FINALLY  SETTLED
----------
Alexander  Pleaded  Not  Guilty  But  He  Allowed
the  Court  to  Find  Him  Guilty -- 
Fine  and  Costs  $14.50.
----------
          Jacob Alexander,  who was arrested a few days ago on the charge of selling a horse to  Monroe Goodrich,  which was afflicted was before  Squire James Webb  this morning.  He entered a plea of not guilty, but permitted the court to find him guilty of the charge and he paid a fine and costs to the amount of $14.50.
          The trade was made several months ago, Goodrich discovering afterwards, that the horse had an affliction, of which he was not told at the time.  Goodrich paid $100 to Alexander for the horse and he has since sold it for the same amount.
          The case has been in court before and, it is rumored that it is a case of personal feeling between  Prosecutor Hack  and Alexander, it being understood that Alexander, although a Democrat, is not a Hack man.

Family  Gatherings.
----------
          Sixty-four years ago on last Tuesday our friend  Nathan Goodrich  made his advent into this world and his children proposed to make this anniversary an occassion of a fmily re-union.  Mrs. Goodrich  was invited to the country and as Nathan was busy in the store, the children and grand children to the number of about twenty, had no trouble in preparing a sumptuous dinner.  Their eyes opened in astonishment when they came home and found the house filled with their children.  But a good dinner and a good social time dispelled their astonishment.  As  Ed.  went to school yesterday morning he left a large supply of samples of cake.
