Female Jurors in Wyoming. From the Omaha Tribute: Laramie, (W. T.) March 8. Yesterday, the Albany county District Court was organized at this place, Cheif Justice Howe presiding. The interesting feature of this court is, as was the case last year, that both the grand and petit juries include females, each jury being equally composed of either sex. The Judge took occasion to compliment io the highest terms the intelligence, discrimination, honesty and proprj|tjf:«f conduct with which th« women ac- quitted the«|) foee last- season, saying they had gone far to vindicate the policy, justify the experiment and realize the egipictationa of those who had clothed themselves with the right. The bar, the bench and the intelligent pen of the comntry had loug felt that something M 'l^ided to improve and purify our jury system ; something to lift ic above, prejudice and pas- sion, and imbue it with a higher regard for law, justice oathand CQpaoienoe..

GE0B&1M, Satirflay, Sep. 30th, '71. Tlte California Election. The Strength of Gen. Grant"a Adminis- tration. "From the New York Herald.] The Republicans, as by a reactionary political whirl wind, have handsomely car- ried the State of California, including the election of their candidate for Governor, Kevton Booth, by three* or four thous- and majority over Haight, the present Democratic incumbent, who was elected iu 18(57 by nine thousand five hundred majority. In explanation of this signifi- cant defeat of the Democracy it may be said that Governor Haight, in his railway .andother speculative affiliations had made himself unpopular with the rank and file of his party: that he had thus alienated from his support some of the most active Democratic leaders in the State and their j followers; that the "new departure,"i moreover, instead of harmonizing, has operated to district, divide and demoral- j ize the party; that Tammany Hall has j been to the party, even in California, what...

GEORGETOWN, May, Sep. 3011], 71. Riot at Marlin. The facts of this affair have reached us. Gassaway, the editor of the Demo- cratic Marlin Mercury, had published a scandalous attack on the reputation of Mr. Dickinson, Republican. At the Republican mass meeting last Tuesday, speeches had been made, and the meet- ing adjourned for dinner. Dickinson meeting Gassaway asked him if he held himself responsible for what he had writ- ten. Gassaway answered in the affirm- ative, and Dickinson denounced him as an infamous liar. Gassaway drew a der- ringer, Dickinbon seized him, forced the pistol down, nnd when it fired the ball Went through the fleshy part of the thigh. Dickinson then gave him a genteel thrash- ing. A Democrat named Altorf ran off and cried that there was a riot. The Democrats then passed out armed with tns and pistols, and dared the " damned licals" to arm themselves and fight it out. In consequence the registration was very promptly closed. Jndge Oliver arrested Dickinson, G...
