TI1E CASE OF REI5ECCA PEAKE.
We find in tho Orange County Demo

for tho niurder of her son injaw, Ephraim

tho following particulurs :
Tho prisoner is somcwhat ndvanced in

a formcr husband. Difiicultics having a
risen in thc family, Mrs. Pcnko was desir
ous of a Eeparation, nnd proposed to her
husband to sct out to her n third of thc

childrcn. To this ho would not nccede,
but In conscqucnce of some cmharrass
nicnts, conveycd his farm to his son E

occurred nbout n year ngo, and nt that time,
Mrs Peako freely thrcatcncd vengeniico
