1 LUITOLS LA.PIKS.
! The N'orwalk Fvp'oiinciit gives us an in
teresting account of an creciivc effort on the
part of etif.-iifi ladies to bring the .Maine
law to hear iu that vicinity. The history
is as follow s :
A PiiivArr 3I.M'r. Law A fair. On
Thursday last our tow n w as the tlicnt re of
most novel ami exciting scene, such as w e some
titiics read ubout, but rarely witness. Some
half a ibut n females, more or less, all mar
ried, we believe, and of respectable stand
ing in society, residing in Fairfield, Steam
Ct. 'tiers, wi re arrainged before A. (i. Sutton,
M-ti., of this town, on the serious charm? of
r'1' . l" complaint ot a man named Kirt-
l"'"!, innkeeper of that town. The circuui-
t'ues of the case, as we learn them, are
these : Some one or more ladies of that place
knew, or fancied, tn it the aforesaid iunkec-
l' furnished the inebriating draught totbeir
husband or husbands. Whereupon apian
of operations was concocted to put a t..p
to tV practice. Accordingly, the aggric ved
ive, it, company -i'1. some dozen or fif-
teen in th boring women, called upon tl.o
aforcsai I landlord, preferred there charge-,
of selling liquor to their misguided husbands
(which the landlord stoutly denied) and
demanded a pledge of the totalsurrendcr of
the traffic, but the answer to which not pro
ving sati-fj' tory, they proceeded to the cel
lar of the hotel, which they entered by au
open outside door, and turning the faucets
tj tin- liquor barrels. 1, t the fiilltr run.
After which they, quietly ami unmolested,
retired. Hence the action for riot. Thu
fair prisoners were eseoited into town by a
Urge number of ladies and gentlemen from
Fairfield, ami were received at the Hall of
the Sons of Temperance here by a crowd of
Norw alk ladies in waiting. The exs iiina
tiotl took place iu the court house, which
was filled to the brim with eager spectators.
Not being present, we can only speak of the
result, which was a triumphant aequital
without the argument of counsel. Tbe fair
prisoners wive, iu every sense, of the word,
the ' lions " of the day the observed of
all osi-crters." They were toasted and feas
ted with a free dinner it the Mjiisioii Hotel,
and showered with Uoqui Is by our tow ti 1 1-die-,
an, I at evening serenaded by too brass
l and. All in all, it was a scene rarely wit
nessed by our u-tiaUy q-iict town, (hi thu

shout went up that sin. ok the walls of the
court house to its very foaudntion.
