    • Nicholas Bradshaw and Miss Laura Andrus were married last Sunday. The Press extends congratulations. [1]

    Family Note:
    • Nick Bradshaw was brought up before his Honor, Justice Audas, Thursday, on a charge of assault and battery, preferred by his wife, who alleged that Nick had laid violent hands upon her, besides making serious threats. Lawyer Wilder appeared for the prosecution, and lawyer Gallagher for the defense. Nick demanded a jury trial, and constable Collier started in pursuit of an intelligent six. His efforts to capture a jury were considerably amusing. He chased Ed. Hoose for over a quarter of a mile, and finally collared him; he caught Libby biding behind his counter, but missed Alger, who was doing the same thing behind his counter; he then ___ up along the lake shore and nabbed "Daddy" Knights before he could flee; he went up to capture W. Whaley, who seeing him coming, got down in his cistern, and after exploring the premises, Collier left. A jury was finally secured, and embraced the following: Wm. Foster, Jr., Chas. G. Long, Abner Knights, Mead Carpenter, S. Drum, C.R. King. The case was clearly proven against Nick, and the jury found him guilty, but recommended the court to suspend sentences during good behavior; and the Justice, after giving the prisoner some good advice, released him. [2]

    • We learn that Nick Bradshaw's wife has arrived here, and will keep house for her father, Ben Andrus. She left Nick at Oneida, where they were keeping house, because he again whipped her. [3]
    • Whereas my wife, Laura Bradshaw, has left my bed and board without just cause or provocation, therefore all persons are hereby forbid harboring or trusting her on my account, as I will pay no debts of her contracting from this date. --- Nicholas Bradshaw, Cleveland, December 1, 1881 [4]

    Family Note:
    • Nick Bradshaw started up another row with his wife, Tuesday, and after making some ugly threats, started off eastward along the RR track. He has not been seen since. [5]
