Court record

The 4th week of the Superior Court was opened at 2 o’clock Mon. The case of Vincent vs. Town of Rowe mentioned as on trial in our last issue, occupied the first day and part of Tues. No new facts were brought out by the evidence not already noted. The jury, after considering the case till midnight, were unable to agree upon a verdict and were discharged. the jury were understoood to all be willing to give the plaintiff a reasonable amount, but a few also wished to give him all he asked for, to which the majority would not accede, and hence no verdict could be reached...

Edward A. Robbins vs. John T. Fitch & als. - This was an action on a promissory note of $1026.49 dated March 1, 1874. This note was funded by the Fitches of Northampton and endorsed by H.S. Porter of Hatfield. The makers were defaulted, and the trial was for the purpose of recovering from the indorser [sic].

The question of fact to be decided was, in what capacity did the indorser sign?...The court ruled that...there was no consideration for the indorsement, and the indorser ws not liable...the verdict of the jury was for the defendants...

John Butterworth vs. S.W. Hall et al & Tr. This was for an action to recover for a horse power. The defense was that the machine did not correspond with the circular and description given; that the same was poorly made and had broken in using. The defense was hardly sustained by the evidence, and the jury returned a verdict for the plaintiff for full claim; amount, $211.31...

The latter case completed the jury list, and the jurors were therefore discharged for the term.

the following foreigners were naturalized: Michael McCarty, Patrick Hynes, Philip Ott, John Casper Zeiner, Charles W. Raguse, Augustus Eberline, Lawrence Power, Cornelius Redding, William Fitzgerald, Edward Hannepin, Martin Flaherty, John Haigis, Leonhard Sauter, Morris Joyce, Peter Horan, John Moor, John Osborn, Peter Gray, Patrick F. Corcoran.
