Sewi.vo Machines. The committee on
sewing machines, would rcport.there were up
on the ground, 6ve different patents. These
were the WM.cr c- Wilson's, two thread
lock-stitch, family machine; the llowt, and
the Singer, both lock-stitch shuttle ma
chines, for manufacturing purposes, the
Grover if Baker, doublo-thrcad.'chaln-stitch,
and the Atwater, single-thread, chain-stich,
family machines. In the entries there had
been no classification of them as family, and
manufacturing machines, and the committee
were left without guide iu this respect.
The Howe muchiue for leather, or heavy
work, probably has no superiors; the Singer
machine, for tailoring purposes, is a ma
chine of much merit, but neither of these
were adapted to the teats submitted by the
committee. The committee regret that
there was no person in charge of the Q ro
ver & Baker instrument suQicietly familiar
with it to set forth its merits. It was on
this accourt, that it was passed by.
The coonmitteo onder all the cirenmstan
ccs, award the first premium to tho Wktdtr

The Lawyer's Story.
About (he commencement of the present
csntury there stood near the center of a
rather extensive hamlet, not trtnrttr friileo
distant front a sca:port town, in the north of
England, a large, substantially built, but
somewhjit .straggliug building; known as
Craig Farm House. The farm consisted
of about one hundred acres of tolerable
arable and meadow laud , and at the time
I have indicated, belonged to a farmer by
the nnnie of Armstrong. He hod purchas
ed it about three years previously at a ra'e
held iu pursuance of a decree of the nigh
Court of Chancery. Farmer Armstrong
was married, but childless, his dnmo, like
himself, was a native of Devonshire. Tbey
bore the character of a plodding, taciturn
morosemannered couple, seldom leaving
the Tarm except to attend market, and rare
ly seen at church or chapel, they naturally
enough became objects of suspicion and dis
like to the prying, cossitiirir? $ illasfers ,' to
whom mystery or reserve of any kiud was
bC bourse exceedingly annoying and on
pleasant. . Soon after Armstrong was settled in his
new purchase, another stranger arrived,
aod took up his abode in the best apartments
of the house. The new comer, a nian cf
about Cfty years of age, and evidently
from his dress and gait a seafaring' person,
was as reserved and unsociable as bis land
lord. His name, or at least that which
he choose to be known by, was Wilson.
Ho had one child, a daughter .about thir
teen years of age, whom he placed at a
boardinir school in an adjacent town. lie
seldom saw her ) the intercourse between
father and daughter being principally car
ried on through Mary Btrugnellj, a wiuoyv
of about thirty yeaia of age, and a native
of the place. She was engaged as a ser
vant to Mr. Wilson, and 6eldom left Craig
Farm except on Sunday afternoons, when if
the weather was at all favorable, she paid
a visit to on aunt living in tho town; there
saw Miss Wilsou ; and. returned home
usually at half-past ten o'clock later rath
er than earlier. Armstrong was occasion
ally absent from his home for several days
ton-ether, on business it wrts rumOredi for
Wilson ; and on the Sundav in the first
week of January, 1802, both he and his
wife had been away upwards of a week and
had not yet returned.
About half past (on o'clock, tin that
eveuiug, the early retiring inhabitants of
the hamlet were aroused from their slum
ben bv a loud continuous knocking at the
front door of Armstrong's house ; windows
were hastily thrown open, and presently
numerous footsteps approached the scene
of growing hubbub. The unwonted noise
was caused, it was foond, by farmer Arm
strong, who accompanied by his wife, who
Was thundering vehemently npon the door
with a heavy stick. Still no answer was
obtained. Mra. Strugnell, it wa supposed
had not returned from town ; but where
was Mr. Wilson, who was almost always
at home both day aud night f Presently,
a lad called out that a white sheet or cToth
of some sort was hanging out of one or the
back" windows. This announcement eon
firmina the Tsiru.e artrtrehensibhs which' had
hecran to (terminate in the wise heads of
villager, disposed them to adopt a more
effectual mode of obtaining admission than
knocking seemed likely to prove. Johnson,
the constable of the parish, a man of great
shrewdness, at once proposed to break in
the door. Armstrong who as welt s his
wife, was deadly pole, and '"trembling vio
lently, either with cold or agitation, hesita
tingly consented; and crowbars licinsr snccd-
ily procured, and an etHrnrme was forced
and in rnshed ft score of excited rrich.
Armstrong'e wife it .was afterwards re
tniri1bered, tanglit hold of her husband's
arm in a hurried, frightened manner; whim
pered hastily in his ear; and theu both fol
lowed into the" hbuso.
Armstrong, who appeared to have some
what recovered from his panic, darted at
once up the staircase, followed by the whole
body of rustics. On reaching the landing
place, he knocked at Mr. Wilson's bed
room door. answelf was rdtiirllctl.
Armstrong seemed to hesitat?; bdt the con
stable at onco lifted tip the latch j they
entered and then a melancholy spectacle
presented itself. Wilson, completely dressJ
ed, a lifeless corpse. He had been stabbed"
in two places in the breast with some sharp
pointed instrument. Life was extinct.
Tho window was open. On further inspec
tion, several bundles containing many of
Wilson's vnluables in jewelry and ptate to
gether with clothes, shirts and silk hand
kerchiefs were found. Tho wardrobe, and
a secretary bureau bad been forced open.
The assassins had, it seemed, been disturb
ed, and hurried off by the open window
without their plunder. A hat was also
picked up in the room, much to small for
the deceased. They stintth?d it np and at
tempted to clap it on -Armstrong's llbad
but it was not near large enough. This
together with the bundles dissipated a sus
picion which had been growinor in Johnson's
mind, and he roughly exclaimed :
"You need not look so scared; farmer,
it's not you j that's quite clear -
To this remark ueithr.- Armstrong nor
his wire answered a syllable, but continued
to gaze at the corpse, the bundles, and the
broken locks, in bew ildered terror aad- as
tonishirlent: FVesently some ono asked if
any ode Had seen Mrs. StrugucIl T This
question aroused Armstrong, and he said :
brie is not come home yet; her door is
"How do you kn6w that ?'' cried the
constable, turning sharply aronnd.and look
ing in his face. "How do you know that."-
"Because because," stammered Arm
strong, "because she always locks it when
she goes out."
The constable, however, insisted on be
ing siiown the room, lie was of course
closly followed by the other persous in tho
house. One of them looked through the
key-hole, and exclaimed that the key was
on the inside. Armstrong, it was after
wards sworn, started as if he had been shot;
and his wife again clutched his arm with
the same nervous, frenzied grip as before.
The sheriff called out the woman's name at
the top of his voice. lie was answered by
a low moan. In an iustant the frail door
was burst in, and Mrs. Strugnell was soon
pulled out apparently more dead than alive,
from under the bedstead where in speech
less consternation she lay partially conceal
ed. Placing her in a chair they succeeded
much more easily, indeed, than they an
ticipated in restoring her to consciousness.
Nervously she glanced around the circle of
eager faces that eilviroucd her, till her eyeS
fell on Atrhstl'ons and his wife, when she
gave a loud shriek, and muttering "They,
they are the murderers I" swooned, or pre
tended to do so, again instantly.
The accused poisons, in spite of their
frenzied protestations of innocence, were
instantly seized nnd taken off to a place of
security; M1. Strugnell was conveyed to
a neighbors close by; the house was care
fully secured; "drtd tlie agitated nnd wonder
ing villagers departed to their several homes.
The deposition made by Mrs. Strugnell at
the inquest on the body, was id substance
"On. the aftenoon in question, she had,
in accordance with her usual custom, pro
ceeded to town. She called ou her aunt,
took ta with her, and afterwards went to
the Indt pendent Chapel. After service;
she called to see M ss Wilson, but was in
formed that in consequence of a severe cold
the young lady was gone to bed. She then
Immediately ptoceeded homewards, and con
sequently arrived at Craig Farm more than
au hour before her usual time. She let
herself iu with a latch kKy; proceeded to
her bed-rbdrti. There was no light to Mr.
Wilson's chamber, but she could hear him
moving about in it. She was about going
down stairs, having put away her bonnet
arid shawl, when she heard a noise as of
persons eutering the back way, aud walking
gently ricfoss the Rittibcri floor. Alarmed
as to who it could be, Mr. and Mrs. Arm
strong not being expected home for several
days, she gently closed bcr .door and locked
it. A few minutes after, she heard steal
thy steps ascending the creaking stairs, and
' l : j ...i.:
a voice in a low, nurneu unifier, nniu
"Mary, are you there f" she was positive
it una Mr' Armstrong's voice, b'lt was too
terrified to answer. Then Mrs. Armstrong
she was sure it was she said, also, to
whisper, aud as if addressing her husband
'she IS revfcf back at tills hour." A
minute or so after there was a tap at Mr.
Wilson's door. She could not catch what
answer was made, but, by Mr. Armstrong's
reply, she gathered that Mr. Wilson baa
taia'dowo, and did not wish to be disturbed.
He wag ortcrl In the habit of laying down
with his clothes on. Armstrong said "I'll
not disturb you sir; I'll only put this par
cel on tho table." There is no lock to Mr.
Wilson's door. Armstrong stepped iiito.
thc room and almost immediately she beard
a sound as of a violnet blow, followed by a
deep groan, and then all was still. She
was paralyzed with horror and affright.
After the lapse ot a few seconds, a voice-
Mrs. Armstrong's udoubtedly asked in a
tremulous tone if "all was over f" Her
husbnne answered "Yes; but where be
the Kevs of the wntinrr desk kept f" Arm
strong then came out of the beuYoom', and
both went Into Mr. Wilson's sitting apart
ment. They goon returned, and crept
stealthily along tho passage to their own
bed-room on the first floor. They then
went down stalrt to the kitchen. One of
them the woman she had no doubt went
6'ut, the back way. andheavy footsteps again
ascended the stairs. Almost dead with
fright, she then crawled under the bedstead,
and remembered' uo more, outil she found
herself snrrouuded with villagers."
Ia confirmation of tut statement, a large
ehup-kuife, btlOnjing to Armstrong,' anp
with -which it was evident the murder h4
brcti committed, waa found iu one corm t
of Wilson's bed-room, and a mortgage deed
of one thousand pounds ou Craig Fnrrn,
mo property of Wilson, and which- Mr.
trugnell swore was alwas kept In the writ;

clined a very advantageons offer of oms

perhaps than all, a key of tho. back; door
was found in his pocket, which --ttot only
confirmed Mrs. Stillgn?!' evidence,, bat
clearly demonstrated that the' knocking at
the door for admittance, which bad aroused
the hamlet, was a pure subterfuge. Th
cpnclusiou, therefore, almost universally ar
rived at throughout the neighborhood was,
that A ri strong aod his Wife were the'ruil
ty parties; and that the bundles, the brok
en locks, the sheet hanging out of the win
dow, the bhiny black bat, wero like the
knocking, mere cunning devices to mislead
The case excited great interest in tho
country, and I esteemed myself profession

myself, by a perusnal of the desposition,.
that there was no doubt, xif the prisoner'
