gram In yesterday's f pai thMbe
trial of John E. Poinde$ter,, iof the
fatal shooting of C. C. Curtis, in Rich
mond, Va, last month, had resulted in
a verdict of";Tb'h'r'ii9insjlanghter
arid the sentence of the prisoner to two
years in he penitentiary.. The, case has
proven one of intense interest, and the
interest has been general and wide
spread. The case presents features ot
a marked and conspicuous character,
; such as are rarely associated with crim
inal cases, among these being that
the woman was one of' educa
tion and high respectability. Whether
the punishment - meted out to Pomdex
teris sufficient pr excessive ques
tion concerning which there will be a
wkle difference of opinion among dif
ferent people. The whole matter' of
civil and social law is more or less in
' volved in the case and the questions
arising under it therefore addrfess them
selves in a measure to all of us.
There are offences which cap be com
mitted against the laws of , society
which deserve punishment yet? of which
ihft civil law takes no cognizance. To

once to visit a shoe-store and had been
exceedingly annoyed by tlje imperti
nenoe of a derk ; he had made himself
disagreeable to the last degree and had
proceeded to thatj extent where another
step forward would have been an open
insult. The young lady, having no near
male relative except a one-trrmed broth
er, confided-her grievance! to her be-
trothed lover. ne represented to inm
that such and such outrageous ltnpeT
' tenances made . up her case against
Curtis. Poindexter knew ; that there
was no law to which Curtis could be
made to account for his insolence, and
lie did what any other spirited man,
who loved the girl, would have done
under the same circumstances he be
came a law unto himself. He procured
a horse-whip and chastised the offender ;
and when, later,. Curtis came with a
friend to his place of business for the
avowed purpose of comnqitting an as
sault and battery upon him, Poindex
ter, literally "pressed to the wall" as
far as the law requires a hian to go in
avoidance of bloodshed drew, and

We acknowledge a suspicion that Miss
Cottrejl exaggerated to her lover the
facts of Curtis' treatment of her. It

in too many cases, are themselves re
