A lady from Bedford county gives us tbe
subjoined particulars ol one of tbe most
atrocious and horrible crimes we have ever
beon called upon to record. It appears
that Mr. Henry Creasey, living In tbe
Meadows of Goose Crcoek, In Bedford coun
ty, some short time since bad tbe misfortune
to lose his wilo, who died leaving an infant
child. Tbe infant was placed under tbe
care of Mr. John Morgan, its grandfather,
and was nursed by colored girl, aged
about fifteen years. Two or three days
since Mrs. Morgan had occasion to scold
this girl for some delinquency, at which
sbe showed marked signs ot anger and re
sentment. Tbe next day Mrs. Morgan
Tivited a neighbor's house, a short distance
off, leaving tbe child with tbe nurse. Dur
ing her absence the fiendish nurse, to gratify
ber anger against Mrs. Morgan, deliberately
threw the child into tbe fire, and let it re
main there until its legs were burned off at
the ankle, causing its death. When Mrs.
Motgan returned in a few hours, sbe whs
horrified to see the innocent little babe
burued almost to a crisp, its distorted fea
tures indicating tbe terrible agonies it had
endured. Tho nurse, who still remained a
the bouse, was at once taxed with tbe deed,
but denied it bitterly, stating that tbe
child's legs had been eaten off by a dog
while she left only a few moments. Tbis
was wholly disproved by tbe plain marks of
tbe fire,' and tbe brute' being threatened
with severe punishment, finally confessed
that sbe bad commiteed tbe horrible deed
in tbe manner above stated, and uisigns as
ber reason her dissatisfaction against lire
Morenn. She was then conveyed to Liberty
and committed to jail for trial. Sbe should
properly have been bung lrom the limb of
tbe first convenient tone.Tynthburg ( Fa.)

Mr. John Swinton, who lale.'y left tbe
New York Times, after many years of ser
vice upon it as an editorial associate of Mr.
Raymond, is engaged upon a work entitled
''Ten Years of Journalism." It will not
only embrace Mr. Swinton' experience as
editorial writer and managing editor, but
will treat of tbe leading elements, features
and characteristics of metropolitan journal
ism. Such topics as Ibe "Editorial Life,"
'Journalism To-day," the '-Scope and
Power of Journalism," "Journalistic Mor
als," the "Editoiial Style," etc., etc., will
be discussed lrom the standpoint of experi
ence. There is a woman in Rochester, New
York, who is oppo.cd to second marriage.
Of course she has a cast Iron husband and
knows ho will never die and give her a
chance to rope in another one. Sbe argues
through a Rochester paper that second ma
nage ought to be forbidden by law, on tbe
ground that as mad is immortal we should
legislate for the next world as wall as for
tbis that if it is a crime to have two wives
or two husbands here it will be a crime bore
after. All this may be so; and rs wo have
at least ninety per cent. more, legislation in
this world than we know what to do witb,
it would probably be well enough to ship
same of it to tho next.
