. The Aiy was mst trt propitious for the public
sjteaklsg, which csme off yesterday, at "I
o'ci&ck, at the Exchange Hall. The weather
was perversely murky, a heavy rain having
fallen frera 10 o'clock in the morning until 1
r. x. Neiwtthstaading this, however, there
was a dense crowd in the Hall at 2i o'clock,
tbe appelated hear, to hear and judge for them
selves of the principles and abilities of the
two candidates for Governor.
CL Hattok led off in a style which, we
tfcfask, sanst have satisfied even his friends and
oapfniers tbat there is something wofully
Jae, eMber Ha his cause or himself, to have
evoked so weak and inadequate effort to influ-
ibe voters of Tennessee to elect him Gov-
His two points or issues were the dis-
trffettUea ef the public lands among the States,
jlwI alien wSrage. But we shall not now at
tpt any report or comment upon his argu
Hteats, as we are prepared to give a fair and full
report ef the discussion.
Ges. Harris came up to the stand with that
tratet consciousness of an anticipated victory
wMch assures an audience. that he has bagged
his game. His speech was remarkable for
dose and forcible logic, soupd doctrine and true
elequefice. Every .sentence told upon his list
eners, and awakeneda corresponding sympathy
fra the mass of the crowd.
We have only time and space now to say that
. we claim a more complete and undisputed vic
tory is the debate than was ever before wit
nessed in-a similar discussion in Tennessee,
asW we shall take occasion Jin our next issue to
present sch an abstract of the discussion as
wiH clearly illustrate the disparity in the posi
tiWs of the two candidates.
We now claim a csrtain majority for the
Democratic candidate of 10,000 votes. Know-
KcrtfeiWs must themselves see that the contest
is a hepeles8 one on their part.

THE CANVASS FOE O0VEBN0B.
We have the following spirited account of
the speaking at Brownsville on Thursday. The
penple should turn out and see for themselves
whether the report of our correspondent is not
trne to the letter. We have not a doubt hat
the verdict here passed, will be the universal
jadgBent of all parties before the canvass is
Cricyiadaaot of the VesipUs Appsal.
Brownsville, May 25, 1857.
Ebitoks Appeal : The discussion between
the candidates for Governor camu off in our
town to-day. A large crowd was in attend
ance, the speaking being out in the Court House
3-ard, the Court House being by no means suffi
cient to hold the crowd. I have seen in many
Bewspapers, glowing accounts of the eloquence
ef Hatton the perfect crushing manner in
which he literally uses up Harris. Such ac
counts are one-sided, as are all the laudatory
Betices of the Know-Nothing candidate for
Governor. But, as a candid and unprejudiced
aan, I do wish every man, woman and child in
the State could have heard the discussion on
to-day. I do assure you that our able and n
MBeiek candidate for Governor more than met
the expectation of his friends ; his argument
was overpowering, and the effect upon the crowd
was telHng. I will not attempt to give you a
detaH of the speeches. The staple of Mr.
Hatton's speech was "Distribution" not
the proceeds, but the public lands themselves.
Harris' argument was unanswerable upon this
question, as upon all other matters of discus
sion between them. SuSice it to say, that all
we ask is that the people wil not take for
graatedwhat they see in the Know-Nothing
Papers; but that they will one and all turn
out and hear the two candidates.
It is a fact that the Democrats to-day art
exultant, and the Know-Ncthings discomfitted.

by a Committee of gentlemen from this city,
who had gone up to bummemiie on tuesu.sj.

was a very large crowd or citizens asa-muicu;

panies. As the train came in sight the throng
became agitated, and a general rush was made
fr th nlatforms bordering the track. The
cars stopped, and forthwith began to pour out
their anxiously expected and heartily welcome
sasseneers. When the bustie had in some de
cree subsided, J. W. R. Pope, Esq., Chairman
,h Qr.u.iai rvimmittee who had come down
with our visitors from Sumnerville, proceeded
to introduce them in the following remarKa :

In behalf of the Special Committee, charged

guests of the City of CharleBlon on the road,
and making arrangements for their conduct
from the depot, allow me to report tnatwe took
charge of our friends at Branchville, bag and
baggage, and meaning no disrespect to the band
boxes, we might add band boxes, too. The
many familiar faces we encountered on our
way, almost beguiled us into the belief that we
were once again beneath the hospitable roofs
and enjoying the good cheer of our Western
friends a hospitality as unrestrained and
boundless as their own Western prairies, and
as ceaseless as the continuous flow of the ma
This is an occasion, sir, whichdoesnot leave
the mind of any true Southern man unimpressed
with the preat importance of the results which
are likely to flow from these 'greetings and af
filiations between peoples uavmg a commuu
destiny, who are one in interest, one in senti
ment, and one in all the relations of life, both
uncial and nolitical : and these courtesies are
the pulsations of Southern civilization, beating
hih and throbbing from the banks of the Mis
sissippi to the Atlantic We stand pledged to
each other for the support of a common pro
gress. The facilities of travel and transporta
tion nnened our markets and homes to
arli nfhor. It is not. however, the advantage
of mere barter and trade we most value; it is
the union of Southern men and Western men
which is now welling up in our hearts, and
ruling nq with eratulation. It bodes so much
of good to the South, good to the West, and
perchance to the whole country, that we know
of but one fitting response. It is a long, wild,
nA rnntinuous hurrah ! Hurrah for the Sou'h
and hurrah for the West who have brought
their hsmes, and now their hearts, nigh unto
us, for we are sworn to each other by the ten
derest honds of lirotherhood, now and forever,
one and inseparable.
Oh welcome, thrice welcome, kind friends,
And you, ye fair daughters of the West, who
have honored us bv vour presence. Not more
weleome are the vernal flowers of the balmy
hrMth of gDriner. after the long and protrac
ted winter, than you amid your sweet smiles
and bewitching beauty. Alio me then, Mr.
Chairman, and fellow-members of the Com
mittee of Reception, to introduce to you Mr.
Mumford, Chairman of the Memphis delega
tion, and these gentlemen or me aeiegauon at
large, our friends and fellow-countrymen.
The introduction wag acknowledged on the
part of the Reception Committee, by Gen. Wm.
P.. Martin, who said:
Mr. Chairman aud Gentlemen: We greet
your arrival with a heartfelt welcome. I am
admonished, however, by the claims of hospi
tality, not to detain you from the rest and re
freshment you so much need, A speaker must
often be brief by reason of the lateness or tne
hour i but now the obligation is as imperative
because it is too early. I must suggest, there
fore, but one consideration elicited oy tnis in
teresting occasion. In 1830, before a vast as
aemhlr at Knoxville. our lamented Hayne pro
claimed the bans of marriage between the West
and the Atlantic" What God hatu joined to
gether," were his words, " let no man put asun
der," and the voice of that vast assemblage sent
fortn, in response, one long anu ioau apjuuTdi
Twentv one years have passed. Before the es
pousals many who were present at the betroth
al, have passea aown 10 we sueucc ui mc muiu.
But we must not forget them on such an occa
sion. Honor and peace to the memory of the
noble men who inaugurated the efforts which
are to bear their fruit in our day and genera
tion. In such a period, how mighty the change
in our land. In 1836 the population of the
United States was 15,000,000. Tennessee had
6S1.000. By the last census it was 1,002.717,
and is now probably a million and a half. We
had twenty-five States we have now thirty-
one. And as for Railroads, perhaps not 10,000
miles had been built. We have now, more man
21,000 miles, and 1,200 millions of dollars have
been expended upon them. How vast in the
interval has been the accession of wealth and
honor, and every element of a nation's great
ness. If this free communication should lead
to still closer ties ; if this figurated marriage of
ocean and river should be followed by that near
est union of bands and hearts, known in life's
drama, then may we be permitted to wish the
happy participants, a very much shorter en
gagement than that of which we have spoken
while we hope that the occasion of power and
greatness may be but a type of the prosperity
that awaits them. Your feet are probably for
the first time on the soil of Carolina; but we
do not regard j'ou as strangers. There was a
time when South Carolina, no longer an inde
pendent State, but a subjected province, sent up
a long wail of despair from mountain to sea
board. Then in the hour of her extremity, the
mountaineers of I'ennessif, under Sevier and
Shelby, and the gallant Georgians under Clark
and Twiggs, hastened to the rescue, and at
Kind's Mountain and Camden,!heir noble blood
flowed as freely as you will mingle the water
of your mighty river with the broad Atlantic.
There are those now present in your numbers
and ours, whose ancestors have, side by side,
spilt their blood to emancipate the soil on
which we stand. We cannot, then, regard you
as strangers. But, gentlemen, there remains
another tie to be mentioned. We are citizens
of the same South that much abused South ;
that aggressive South, where aggressions con
sist in the simple desire to be let alone. Your
people are our people. Your institutions are
ours We have a common history the future
is the same, bright and glorious, if true to our
selves or butl will not reverse the picture.
There are modifications of opinion among us,
but our cardinal faith, like our destiny, is the
same, one and indivisible. Again, gentlemen,
we bid you welcome.
Mr. Mumford, Chairman of the Memphis
Delegation, responded to these words of wel
come, as follows:
Mr. Cliairman and Gentlemen : I am in
structed by ihe citizen delegates of Memphis
to make our grateful acknowledgment to the
cenerous kindness with which you hare this
day received us. To attempt an accurate de
lineation of the mingled pride and pleasure and
thankfulness we feel, were indeed an idle task.

Mr. Sexier, end Gentlemen
Of the Fire Vepartaeni of Memphlt:
We welcome you to thtt city of Charleston
You have come from your distant homes on
the banks of the Mississippi, many of you for
the first time, to behold the sun in the East, as
he rises from his watery bed in the Great At
lantic. You have seen him in your western
skies, sinking to rest amidst the dense forests
and turpid waters, that surround you, and we
now bid you welcome to join his eastern wor
shippers in their morning orisons to the great
God of day.
As citizens, we greet you as the representa
tives of a race of men whose enterprise and
perseverance are adding constantly to the re
sources and renown of our common country,
and whose true Southern hearts will stand
manfully by us in our contest for the perma
nency of Southern rights and Southern institu
tions. As firemen, we greet you as brethren en
gaged in the same good cause of philanthropy
as ourselves; actuated by the same benevolent
principles that prompt us to make sacrifices for
the public weal, and in guarding our homes
from the desolating influences of fire.
We welcome you to the ancient city of the
Sumpters, the Marions and the Moultries, tt
storied recollections of whose virtues and pa
triotism must be familiar to you all as Ameri
cans. It is a home endeared tc us by all the
glories and recollections of the past, and Sa
cred as the present sanctuary of our household
divinities. Tj this home, in behalf of the
Board of Fire Masters, I bid you welcome,
and in the name of our city authorities we re

THE BEAUCHAMP TRAGEDY IN KENTUCKY.
From the Boston Traveler
We were led, a short time since, to recall, in
connection with the novel of W. Gilmore Simms,
and review the circumstances connected with
the well-nigh forgotton Beauchamp tragedy, In
wmcn everybody in tne country was interested
thirty years ago. In noticing Mrs. Howe's
new play recently, we spoke of 11b similarity
in a single point to this Beauchamp story; but
tne whole history of the strange altair is worm
recalling from oblivion.
Our main authority is the confession of Beau
champ himself, made shortly before his execu
tion, and printed in a thick pamphlet at Bloom
field, Kentucky, in 1820. This pamphlet, which
contains also some letters of Beauchamp, some
verses by himself and wife, and an account of
his last hours, Is exceedingly rare, the only
copy we have ever seen being that belonglngto
tne Boston JWienaum.
On the night of Sunday, the Cth of Novem
ber, 1825, Col. Solomon P. Sharpe, one of the
foremost lawyers In Kentucky, formerly Attor
ney uenerai or me State, some years earner a
member of Congress, and at that time a leader
in the newly elected State Assembly, was mur
dered at Frankfort, under circumstances of pe
culiar atrocity. He was roused from his bed
by some one knocking at bis door, and he was
there seized by the assassin, who after some
words, stabbed him to the heart, almost in sight
of his wife, who rushed to his side, but too late
to hear a syllable from him, or to learn In any
way who was his murderer.
Suspicion soon fell, however, on a young law
yer named Beauchamp, who was arrested, tried,
and sondtmneu apparently on raise evidence,
but who yet was the realmurderer. Party an
imosity, then furiously excited throughout the
btate by some question relating to the courts
ascribed the murder to political hatred, for
Sharpe was the leader of bis party, and the
idol or me people; nor was it until atter tne
trial that the-astounding story of Beauchamp's
actual crime and his reasons tor it were made
public by his own ingenuous confession,
some years before, apparently as early as
1S18, Col. Sharpe bad seduced Miss Anne
Cooke, ar young lady of respectable family, ed
ucated aud refined, and as appears from her
subsequent course, of unusual force and sever
ity or character. Proud and intense ot leeling.
she withdrew entirely from the society where
she had been admired and courted, and with ber
widowed mother, her books and her slaves, ere
hid her disgrace in the complete seclusion of a
It was here that voung. beauchamp, in a fa
tal hour for both, sought Ber out, urged himself
on her acquaintance, fell passionately in lov
with her, and, led by his passion, devoted him
self with a barbarous magnanimity, to her
dreadful thirst for vengeance on ber betrayer.
He cannot nave been more than nineteen years
old at this time, and he had been on the point
of commencing the study of law with Col
Sharpe, when be was repulsed from such
connection by the story of his villainy towards
MiBS Cooke, cenerous, though, ungovernabi
of temper, he looked with aversion on a man
so stained regarding him as " no better than
a horse inter," as ne nimseir naively says,
His natural pity for Miss Cooke was
strengthened by the praises bestowed on her
beauty and wit by a friend of his who had been
her former admirer.
He visited her in her self imprisonment, but
Bhe refused to see him; be insisted, and Bhe at
last came form, but received mm coldly, tie
pretended a desire to use her library, and bor
rowed a book which gave him a pretext to call
again in a few days, when he again saw her.
Little by little her reserve wore ofi, while his1
enthusiasm for her grew into fervent love. He
urged his suit and besought her hand in mar
riaze, which she at first steadily refused, and
only yielded finally on condition that he should
hrst kill Col. onarpe,
This wan in 1821, and in the autumn of that
year he went to Frankfort for the express pur-
pose ot cuaiiengwg ouarpe, ana ot euouung
him if he declined. Tne two walked out to
gether along the river at Frankfort, and when
. i ,1 . r-1. , . a
they bad come to a retired place outside tne
town, Beauchamp disclosed to Sharpe in what
relation he stood to Mies Cooke, and asked if
he would fizht him. Sharpe said be could no
fizht in such a cause he would let himself be
killed rather than do it; and falling on his
knees, he implored Beauchamp not to kill him,
The bate of the enraced man turned to scorn at
what he thought the most glaring cowardice
he struck anarpe in me tace, caned mm oy me
most insulting names, and swore he would cane
him in the streets every day till he forced hica
to a duel. Iney parted, and early next morn
ing Sharpe left Frankfort, and Beauchamp lost
Miss Cooke nowresolved to kill her betrayer
with her own band, and together with Beau
champ', she contrived a plot as artful as that
by which Leonore betrays Lothair, to bring
him to her bouse, where she could shoot him
This failed, and after a long time she gave u
her cherished plan, and left the murder again
to Beauchamp, who, meanwhile, by a sophis
try such as familiarity with a dreadful purpos
otten produces, bad persuaded himself that it
would be right to kill his enemy, not openly,
as be had at first propssed, but by assassina
tion. Accordingly, after his marriage with Miss
Cooke, In June, 1824, he formed nis plans for
the deed. Neverwas a murder more deliber
ately committed. For more than a year he
was busy making arrangements so mat no ev
dencc could be brought against him. He even
deferred the act till after an election, hoping
that Thompson, who ran for Govemer against
Desha in 1824, would pardoi him if he were
chosen, aB he was not. Disappointed in this,
be determined to kill eharpc at sucn a time
that his death would seem occasioned by po
litical enmity ; for which reason he choose
the beginning of a session of the Legislature,
in which, as we nave said, snarp was a promi
He traveled to Frankfort as if on business,
lodged at the house of a relative of Col. Sharpe,
and, disguised as a negro, he lurked about the
house of his victim till he made sure he was
within. He then knocked, called him to the
door, showed his face, that he might have the
agony of knowing whohis murderer was, and
then stabbed him to the heart. The unfortu
nate man knew his assassin, but so sure had
been the blow, that the only words he spok
were. " Prav. Mr. Beauchamp," at the same
time striving to throw his arms about his neck;
but no one heard tbat exclamation, and seau
chamDhadthe satisfaction of seeing that no
auch evidence as this could be brought against
him. He lingered near the house till he was
seen bv Mr.i. Shame, then went back to his
lodeinEs. After having resumed his own dress.
and with a tranquil and satisfied heart, as he
Bays himself, he lay down to sleep.
In the mornlns the whole town was in ex
citement at the horrid deed. Beauchamp's
host eusnected him, but his calm demeanor did
away all suspicion, and he was allowed t0 leave
Frankfort without molestation. As he drew
near home, his wife, who had been anxiously
awaiting his return, saw him approach waving
a red flair which bad been the token of success
atrreed upon between them. She was full of
joy, like himself, at the fulfilment of her just
vengeance, as they thought It, and they talked
over all the'details of the crime with a fearful
Beauchamp was soon arrested, as he expect
ed to be. but contrary to his expectations, he
found tbat all his plans to destrey evidence bad
been fruitless. Circumstances those fatal
eaves-droppers bore too sure witness, and
where a link was wanted in the chain of testi
mony, it was easily supplied by exaggeration
or perjury. He was convicted on the 19th of
May, 1826, and in spite of the doubts of many
eminent lawyers, wno maintained mar. mere
was no existing law to punish murder, he was
executed on the 7th of July following. He had
in vain tried to throw the crime on some other
person, and to obtain a pardon from Gov. De
sha, who, to be sure, bad pardoned his own son,
twice convicted of murder and robbery.
These details may seem like those of a com
mon murder too common in these days, unfor
tunatelyderiving their interest only from a
morbid cravingfor a knowledge of such horrors.
But there Is a deeper reason why the atrocities
of Beauchamp and his wife stand forth in
prominence on the sad calen?arof crime. The
feeling which impelled them was an insatia
ble thirst for vengeance, it is true i but this
finds some excuse in the greatness or their vic
tim's guilt; while it is exalted above the fury
of the ordinary murder by the solemn fanati
cism which made them regard it as a duty, and
by their tenderness of love for each other.
Nothing can be more touching than the gentle
ness and reference with which, every wSgre in
his confession, Beauchamp speaks of itis'wife ;
and she, jn turn, seams tb have felt the most
enthusiastic affection for him. He was her
chevalier her champion, and the champion of
Injured virtue everywhere ; and in her steady
refusal to outlive him, she showed the constan
cy of- a Roman matron, and died as rierqipaily
as Brutqs' Portf a, or the njore f arr.ous Jucretia.
.After bis conylctjoii the spent much time
with him, and' In the hope of dying together
they both took poison, which, however, proved
ineffectual. They were then carefully guard
ed, but in spite of this, on the morning of his
execution, they contrived to. stab themselves.
Beauchamp was not mortally wounded, but his
wife lingered only a few noura atter nia execu
tion. As he wa a carried to the gallows, too
weak to sit on his coffin in the cart, according
to the barbarous custom, he asked to be taken
to his wife, then lying unconscious from her
wound. lie laid his hand on her face, and
LsWht in vain to make herreeognize him; then
-I 1. 1 4 it 1 Ik. A 1 ...oil ..J V..I..
bidding her the tenderest farewell, and bowing
to the ladies at the windows, aa he passed
along the streets, he went on to the scaliold.
Some verses by Mrs. Beauchamp, written
just before her death, and printed in tne pam
phlet above mentioned, support the conception
of her character which one forms from her
wonderful story. They all Telate to her hus
band's crime and fate, and their style Indicates
cultivated mind and a lofty and poetic na
ture. A single stanza In which she speaks ot
her husband's dying with ber, may serve as a
"And wedded to bis side my form shall lie

With all my sonl tulJs dear, or good, or great.
Novels and plays have been built on this
story, and perhaps that of Mr. Simms is the
best among them: but it is impossible for fic
tion to equal me awful simplicity witn wnicn
tseaucnamp's confession portrays me wnoie
series of events. Not even Othello so much
absorbs our interest or moves our emotions.
The action proceeds with the dreadful certainty
of tne creek tragedy, where an invincible fate
drives on the noble and generous to crime. In
the wilderness of Kentucky, among attorneys
and planters, and backwoodsmen, you see again

SHERIFF'S COURT APRIL 13.
From the London Tlmes.l
Mr. Unthank said the declaration set forth
that the defendant had debauched the plaintiff's
wife, and the damages were estimated at
.3,000. The plaintiff was William Frederick
Baring, and the defendant George Tomline
The plaintiff in the action was the son of
Mr. Henry Baring, brother of Lord Ashburton,
and in .November, ltHo, he was married to the
lrrli- fripn ina- rihnnr nf ncr u-hnaA ntuliiif
was the subject of these proceedings. She was
iue uauguier oi oir tucuaru jenitins ; sue naa
fortune and position, combined with personal
retined intelligence, and great
accomplishments. They resided in Paris for
several vearB after their marriage, and on re
turning to this country they lived at Guildford,
from which place they went, In 1S52, to reside
at, baton ha II, near Ketf ord.in rs ottmghamsbire,
They had two children one a boy, about eleven
years of age, the other a girl about eight.
After they bad settled in Nottinghamshire they
mixed in the best society, and visited and re
ceived visits from the gentry of the vicinity of
their residence, and associated with many per
sons of rank and station. The defendast re
sided at a short distance from Eaton hall, and
he was a person of some means and position,
noiding tne commission or a .captain in the
Nottinghamshire Militia,or Sherwood Forres
ters. An acquaintance sprung up between him
and the piamtiii; they frequently visited each
other, they became most intimate friends, went
out together to enjoy the sports of shooting and
hunting, .tc, and visiisT wre frequently ex
changed between Mrs. Baring and Mrs. Gor
don. That was in 1852, and such state of
things continued down to March in the present
year. The plaintiff and his wife had always
lived upon terms of the happiest endearments,
and iu the enjoyment of every comfort and
luxury which afiluence and station could give,
until the unhappy discovery was mnde which
had led to these proceedings, had which destroy
ed a life of happiness to Mr. Baring, had sent
to ruin and disgrace a woman upon whom the
least suspicion oad never fallen, and reduced
ber children to be perhaps worse than orphans.
in Aiarcn me piaintui tounu mat uapt. uor-
don, who had professed so much friendship for
nim, nad, wnue enjoying nis nospitality, se
duced bis wife. On the 11th of that month,
uapt. uonion and Mrs. uaring left .Notting
hamshire and came to London together, under
circumstances of the deepest'distress, not only
to the plaintiff but to Mrs. Gordon, who was
at that time in a condition which rendered the
matter a great deal more painful.
In the greatest agony of mind, Mrs. Gordon
went to a lady named Huntsman, a friend of
both her and Mrs. Baring, and with that lady
she came to London. Mr. Huntsman, who was
a friend of the plaintiff, followed them, and he
and his wife and Airs. Gordon traced the de
fendant to the ureat Astern Hotel, where he
was taking breakfast with Mrs. Baring when
they arrived. Mrs. Baring rose from the
table, and when Mr. Huntsman went in he
found Mrs. Gordon in a fainting condition on
ber knees. IVhen the defendant was appealed
to, he refused to leave Mrs. Baring, and such
was the shock to Mrs. Gordon, that it well
nigh proved fatal she being then close upon
her confinement. That adultery had taken
place had been admitted) there could have been
no answer to mat
No amount of damages could compensate a
plaintiff in such a case-as this. The verdict cf
the jury was sought, as they would have sur
mised, with a view to ulterior proceedings, and
he believed tbat, had not the damages been set
atJE3,000, the jury would really have awarded
more than that amount.
Captain Gordon had four children, and he re
peated that he could not see anything, whatever
to palliate his conduct.
The certificate of the marriage, which
took place at Paris; was then put in, and also
a settlement executed on the marriage of j3,-
Several witnesses were then examined who
substantiated the counsel's statement. In
reference to the scene referred to at the Great
Western Hotel, Mr. Henry Huntsman being
examined, said :
On the 11th of March a communication was
made to me. Mrs. Gordon and Mrs. Hunts
man came to London by the Express train, and
I followed them by a later train, at 12 o'clock.
At 4 o'clock in the morning at the Great West
ern Hotel, I went in, when I saw Mrs. Baring
sitting Dy iue oreaKiast taDie. uapt. yorcon
was standing, with his wife on her knefa be-
iore nim in a lainunj state, &ne was en
treating him to chdo.se between tha two. He
refused to, ga Borne with her. Shortly, after
wards he left tbe room and sent me a message
that he was going away, but would givehis ad
dress if-1 had anything to write to him about.
I then took Mrs. Gordon back to the Great
Western Hotel. Capt. Gordon, visited her in
her illness. The wry CAVe a vrdict for 3,
