HIGHLY INTERESTING LAW CASE. John Julius Dandy, Esq. 1 This was an action \»'• / of damages for fright- Millkanl Modish Spinster. ) tcning pl'ff's horse. John Julius Dandy deposed, that about 12 o'- clock on Saturday last, as he w;is riding up Broad- way, near Fulton-st. the defendant suddenly turn- ed the corner, having on a fashionable hat, which she had just purchased, from an importation open- ed that nn,ruuig by Madam Trumpourie, fresh from Paris. That his horse, being raw from the country, became, as the plaintiff verily believes and testifies on oath, alarmed at the sudden apparition of |he said hat, abruptly whirled round, reared up and transplanted him from his back into the gutter, to the great damage of his person and apparel. Zephyr Silkendale testified that he was afollow- lodger with John Julius Dandy, and that the said' Dandy suffered great injury in his apparel, by rea- son of certain filthy accumulations of mud, as per contract of certain individuals with the Corpora- tion ; and further that said John Julius Dandy kept his bed three days afterwards, as he verily believes in consequence of said disaster. Sylvia Silverheels deposed on the part of de- fendant, that the hat sported by Miss Modish was a fashionable hat, such as is now generally worn by all persons of the least pretensions, from the highest ton to the lowest kitchen, and that no horse of any blood or breeding would think of being frightened at seeing it. Madani Trumpourie deposed that the hat was an exact fac-simile of one worn by the Duchess D'- Angouleme, the last time she took an airing to Fontainbleau. John Julius Dandy cross-examined by Mr. Catchall. Was this horse you rode a blood horse ( Can't tell—don't know his pedigree. Counsel desired the jury to take particular note of this. So you don't know'the pedigree YOU say ? No. Mr. Dandy, I am now going to ask you a ques- tion which I hope you will consider deeply before you answer. Did plaintiff wear curls, when she frightened your horse. She did. You are^ certain of that ? I am. Very well-«-that's sufficient. Zephyr Silverheels cross-examined. Did John Julius Dandy actually keep liis bed three days after the accident ? He did. Was it in consequence of actual injury sustain- ed, or only from fright ? Can't say upon mv honor. Never mind your honor, sir—you are under oath now—might not John Julius Dandy have kept his bed hi consequence of the damage sustained by his costume, rather than from any injury received iu his person / Had he any second suit of clothes to put on, while the other was repairing .' Here John Julius gave Lawyer Catchall a look that rather staggered the ltarned Counsel, and Mr. Silverheels appealed to the Court to know wheth- er he was obliged to answer the question. Th e Court said by all means, unless it would in any way criminate himself. Mr. Catchall then repeat- ed the question. He ha d no other Bttitof ctotVios. O ho ! then be kept his bed for want of them 1 Can't say. Madam Trumpourie cross-examined by Mr. Tongue, counsel for plaintiff. What was the si/.e of Mi.~-s Modish's bonnet 1 Seven feet three inches round, clear of the trim- mings. Is that the u=ml sire ? The sizes vary—if the lady is below the middle size, .the hat ought to be prunorKonably larger; a lady of tour feet and an half height should were a hat twice the circumference of her height. How many .yards of trimming go to the compo- sition of a fashionable hat, Madam ? Sometimes more, sometimes less. Sixty or seventy yards is the extent. How many feathers / About three dozen. What quantity of flowers ? About as much as will fill threg band-boxes. How in the name of wonder do the ladies keep such things on their heads I They hold them fast with their hands. What is the usual price of such a hat ? Here Madame Trumpourie made a low eurtsie, and declared she never attended to such vulgar matters. The ladies paid just what they pleased. The testimony being closed, Mr. Tongue ad- dressed the jury with great criticism, in a speech six hours long, five hours broad, and a quarter of an inch deep, by actual measurement by a stop watch. Wo can only give the skeleton. Gentlemen of the Jury —It is idle to make laws against flying kites, setting off squibs and crack- ers, and carrying Paddies about the streets—it is idle to make laws against projecting signs of ele- pliiurts and obtrusions of bow windows upon the streets—it is idle to prohibit the sober business men of the city from putting out their empty hogs- heads and sugar boxes in front of their stores—it is idle to prohibit the ringing of bells at auctions and steam-boats, so long as our belles are permitted to encumber the streets, embarrass passengers, and frighten horses, by wearing hats of such singular enormity. To my certain knowledge, Gentlemen of the Jury, several persons besides my client have been put in jeopardy of life and limb by these un- lawful projections called hats, and bad Hot their chivalrous gallantry prevented it, the number of actions for damages would have been incalculable. Gentlemen of the Jury, such hats are contrary to the spirit, if not to the letter of the law. There is a law against swine running at large, and why! Because they ran between our legs, and endanger our lives and limbs. Now, though it is impossible for a lady in a fashionable hat to run between any legs but those of a Celossus, still there are an in- finite variety of ways in which they may, and do operate to the great danger of the copmunity.— They frighten horses, as in the case of my client —They frighten the gentlemen from the interior, who come down in the spring to buy goods, and they frighten the Dutch women from Tappan, Ber- gen, Flatbush and other places, whereby they are prevented from coming to market to the great det- riment of the city, which suffers in consequence for want of butter, eggs, wormwood and parsley, peppergrass, poultry and pennyroyal. Gentlemen of the Jury, this is a case of great enormity. Hats were originally devised for the purpose of defending the head and face from the sun and weather; and hands were originally in- vented, at. least lad;es'hands, the one to carry a reticule, the other to bokLap.tfcs train behind.— But, Gentlemen of the Jury, what are ladies' hands good-for now I For all useful purposes they might as well he without.th.em— they are continu- ally employed in holding their hats on their head's. No hair pin, nor ribbon, nor skewer, nor any oth- er instrument of modern inverjtkmis competent to the task of keeping such hats on such heads as | we now see every day in Broadway. You might as well attempt to restrain a balloon with a single hair—brace down the mainsail of a man-oi -war with a rope yarn, or make any other impossibility possible/as to restrain the eccentricities of a fash- ionable bonnet in a moderate breeze. Bless me how it totters! and capers, and flares upwards and downwards-and this way and that! How it shivers in the wind and leaps like a vessel ih staysl How it impedes the \motion of the -weater, and destroys all power or grace^of rnotifto I Some-, times the ladies' heads are blownback upon their shoulders by a sudden puff—andat other* bpat down by the wind taking them all aback,. toti'flS* nautical phrase.

Simplicity in dress is not only a refinement, but a virtue. A rage.for extravagant ornaments, in time, destroys all dis- \ tinctions between education and manners, and stupidity and vulgarity, since those who can pass lor fushionable elegantis, by the sole aid of jthe milliner, will dispense with those accomplish- ments of rnind and manners, which, after all, are the only tests of gentility. It rests with you, gen- tlemen of the ju/y, to discourage these vulgar and mischievous monstrosities, and to do'an act of jus- tice to my injured client. Mr.«Catchall then rose in bebalf<of the'defend- anf, and made a most powerful .appeal, to the feel- v hags,of the jury. Gentlemen of the jury, said he, \the age of chivalry is gone I\—a long pause, and' the orator resumed—\ The age ol chivalry is gone,\ arid the glory of Europe is defeated for .ever!\ - That if the nineteenth century, a period unequalled in-the annals of refinement, for taste in dress—for man- ufacturers of all kinds—for canals and railways— . for every species of eternal improvement—tfor the cheapness, beauty and variety or laces, bobbins, barrages, Gros de Naples, French plaids, English razors, Irish gloves, and American muslins—that in such an enlightened and chivalrous period—a gentlemen—I say, gentlemen, gentleman—that i gentleman should bring an action against a lady, in any court, except the court of Cupid, is an un- equalled barbarian—a barbarian only worthy those- ages of darkness, which—which.—wliich—prece- ded those ages of light—which—which gentlemen of the jury, I say a most unparallelled barbarism. ^ Gentlemen of the jury, where is there to be found, in the common law, the civil law, the can- on law, the statute<aw, the Hrehon law,\~tke laws of the Medes and Persians, the laws of the lultd, the ocean, the air, or the moon. I say where is there any law putting a lady's hat in superscrip- tion or confinement ? None. I defy the' learned gentleman to produce a single case in pom*. But, gentlemen of the fory, the law as in> •raostcases occur, has nothing to do with the business. . Cus- tom gentlemen, custom is above the raw, because it is the ibundation of the law. Now, I maintain that if it were the custom.; to wear no hats at all, there would be nothing • to- lawful in my client going without a hat. * Now, gentlemen of the jury,, if it is lawful to govdthottt a hat; then it follows apriorir— -that is, it goes he- fore in the argument—that she may lawfully wear . a hat as high as a church steeple, and as wide as a church door. The very fact of her being per- mitted to wear no hat, proves that she may wear a hat of any size she pleases. Gentlemen, the circumstance of the plaintiff not knowing the pedigree of his horse, is decisive. against all claim for damages. For aught we know, the horse might have been a w ooden horse, a fly- ing horse, a wild horse, or no horse at all. If a wooden horse, his throwing his rider could not have been any act of volition, proceeding from tho sight of the hat. If a flying horse, ho ought to have beeu called a llypogriff— therefore a misno- mer in declaration. If a wild horse, action will be against plaintiff\ for introducing unlawful ani- mals. Holt. cap. 3d. Raymond, and three thou- sand others. If no horse at all, a nonsuit, as -a matter of course. Auother important query occurs, Gentlemen of the jury. It is stated by the plaintiff himself that my client wore curls as well as a hat, and the question naturally arises, whether it was the curls or the hat that frightened the horse. The animal might have taken them for demi culverins, can- nonades, or bombs, piled \ like artilery, tier over tier;\ and if he had, peradventure, belonged to a militia officer, he might have had an antipathy to such murderous machinery ; or he might havo taken them for Bologna sausages, and some hor- ses beyond doubt have an antipathy to Bologna sau- sages. In short, gentlemen, if he was in your o- pinion frightened at the curls, you must find a verdict for us—the quo animo being different from that stated in the case. But, gentlemen, all this is nonsense. The plaintiff is nonsuited, as a mat- ter of course, and in virtue of the legai maxim, quos supra nos nihil ad nos, anglicc, —the things which are above us are nothing to us. Now, gen- tlemen, the hat being above the lady's head, it fol- lows that my client cannot be .made responsible for any damage from that which was no part or por- tion of her. You might as well fine her for dam- age done by a hail stone, or any other missile from above. I have done. The court charged the jury that if theybelieved the learned counsel for the plaintiff, they would find against the defendant; if they believed the counsel fbr the defendant, they would find against the plaintiff; but if they believed neither, they would do just as they pleased. Jury, after being outThree days and three nights, returned a verdict of disagreement, and were dis- charged. THE TOBACCO BOX.—After much inter- esting conversation,\ perceiving he used Tobacco, I toldhim he had©se intemperate habit left. The color came into his face, and h e eagerly inquired what it was. \ Chewing tobacco,\ was my an- swer. I then in the most friendly manner fbrewat^ jaed hiiri that he would be in danger of returning to his former intemperate-habits, if he continued to stimulate with Tobacco; that with such copious expectoration, he wasted the saliva which was need- ed to digest the food; that no tobacco chewer or smoker could relish water, and that they had an ha- bitual thirst. To all this, he assented, bit.ad.ded* \ it would cost ihe Four timek the effon to give up Tdbacco, tha^it did to abandon Ardent fitoirit.\— \ Then, said I, you are called to make the sacri- fice; and with What irresistible force can you ad- dress the intemperate, being able to statfe tnatyou have from principle given lip your cherished habit, to which you from youth have been addicted; and that they have only to resolve, and the victory is won.\ Long time this interesting fldati-stood in doubt, his sparkling eye and changing countenance betrayed the emotion of his soul. I pressed the subject; he suddenly took from Iris pocket his dar- ling box, laid it upon my desk, rushed from my of- fice, and soon after left the city, for bis residence.
