having stifled love and eonsoienoe, I

my acceptance. I did not then accept bis

Coldw ATM, Mich., Not. 4.
One of the most shocking tragedies
which has ever dicgraeed the pages of
history, was perpetrated : here last night.
Tbe victims weie Mrs, Xbsnetet Leach
and a young law student named Geo. 0.
Brown. The murderer was Mr. Ebenexer
Lescb, husband to tip murdered woman.
About four yarsAf Leach separated
from bis wife. Thewife- then otened a
small millfnershop, and to the date of her
death supported herself by its profits.
iieacn was an idle, worthless foHow. Of
late he has continually watohed her. Mr.
George 0. Brown and Mr. Holcomb were
the first persons io Coldwater who aroused
his jealousy snd sngry passions. Four
weeks since he met Holcomb, and, altera
few words of expostulation, diew a revol
ver on him and threatened lo shoot him
Hs was not quick enough, however, and
Holcomb succeeded in wreatihr the dead
ly weapon from his grasp.- Since thedate
of this event Leach repeatedly menaced
the two objects of his jealousy.
lisst night tbe two men above named
were at Mrs. Leach's shop. When
about to go borne (she lived with her fa
ther, Mr. ougberty, about a mile and
a half distant) she requested one of them
to accompany her. Browa accepted the
invitation, and the two started off. Mrs.
Leach, it appears stood in fear of her has-
Dana, ana it was on this account more
then any other that she requested protec
tion. v neo the two bad walked up Jhi
csgo street ss far ss the Oriental Hotel,
they were overtaken by Leach. Leacb,
with a revolver in bis band, stepped up
wuoin iour leet or mown, snd Urea.
Sirs. Jjeaoh turned around, and before
word was uttered be fired at her, and
scarce two micutes had elapsed till the
two lay on the ground straggling in the
agonies oi aeatu.
On examining the wounds of the vio
lins of this horrid tragedy, it was found
tbat both must prove fatal. Mrs. Leach
was shot in tbe breast, catuing almost in
stent death. Brown received the fatal
missle in the left side.
Mrs. Leach was s woman of 34 years
handsome, virtuous and well educated
She never was known to have committed
any sot which eould have called down so
summary a vengear.ee upon her head
she leaves two c uldren, a boy of fourteen
and a grrl of eight years.
George 0. Brown was a vouos man of
but twenty sammers ; very popular and
intelligent His family is one ot tbe old
est in the State, and his death will be
deeply and widely lamented. He had
just graduated at the Ana Arbor law
school, but had not yet been admitted to
the bar. His attentions to Mrs. Leach
were but those of a gentleman to a lady,
and is is not likely that a, boy of twenty
oould lasoinate a married woman of thir
ty-four. No sympathy is felt for the mur
Dow to Punctuate. j
The art of punctuation if we soar eall
it so art though easily learned, is under
stood by but few people comparatively,
other than professional writers. Persons
who eaa boast or a diploma from Tale,
Havard or other Universities, seem to be
as Ignorant regarding panetuatioh as any
unlettered buor ia the country. - Minis
ters, doctors, and lawyers disregard thj
rules of punctuation as much as tbe most
nprofessioasl of men. Indeed, people
geaevmliy appear te oaeidr yvmeewettsiv
ss it some mystery enveloped it, only to
be penetrated by some severe labor. For
merly this was the case more than at
present. An old writer, in giving some
advice to young authors, told them not to
panotuate their sentences, but leave that
for the printer to do. It is told of
quaint author, who did not punctuate any
oi bis sentences, but bad a few usees of
punctuation marks printed at the back
part of bis book with directions for read
ers to use at their discretion. The fol
lowing from the Portland Trmucript, ia a
very ingenious punctustion problem for
readers to solve. There are two ways for
punotuating it; onu of which makes the
'old experienced man' a grossly wloksd
being, while the other presents him a
model christian. Our readers will find
instruction ss well ss smnsement, in seek
ing to discover its two fold solution :

A Turtli Btort. On the 1st of last
Maroh, Mr. Christian Beckham, who kspt
the Washington saloon in this city, pro
cured a turtle from the Embarrass River
for the purpose of serving his ousto-ners
with a dish of turtle scop. He placed it
in a box, and set it in a lumberroom for
safe keeping until be got ready to kill it;
but lor some cause be postponed the exe
cution of bis purpose until hs forgot all
about ths turtle. He subsequently sold
out the saloon and left the eity for soms
other plsoe. Tbe proprietors knowing
nothing sbout the turtle being on tbe
premises, snd not having oocasion to dis
turb tbs box containing it, his lurtleship
was permitted to remain in bis prison un
til last Saturday, when it wss found alive

that a turtle will livs seven months in a

has been living since his sojourn in Cana

of living in Canada art comparatively
