Verdict for the Defendants. News of

the Superior Court


The second week of the Berkshire superior court began at Pittsfield yesterday at 11 o'clock. Judge Dewey delivered an able charge to the jury in the case of Samuel Oakman against William B. Baldwin and Richard A. Burget, growing out of the agreement between them to manufacture carboys, demijohns and some other glassware of that character at Cheshire, and which ended in insolvency after a few months of business. The case occupied three days in taking the evidence and Judge Dewey's charge was a full clear explanation of the law in such matters as affecting agreements and contracts. The forenoon hour was occupied in the charge and at the opening of the afternoon session the jury after deliberating an hour or so, rendered a verdict for the defendants, Baldwin and Burget. This settles the case, doubtless.
