New-York city on Thursday evening lasi.-
The deceased was born in Goshen, Connec
ticut, in 1S00, and removed with his family
to Chenango Co., New-York, when he was
six years of age. He 'afterwards learned a
trade, then studied law and was admitted to
the Chenanco bar in 1826. He h as since
filled the office of Lieut.-Governor of New
York, represented the State in the U. S
Sonatc, and filled various other offices of
trust with acceptance to his constituents.
During the war he was an earnest and un
flinching supporter of the Government in its
efforts to suppress the rebellion. His death
was sudden and wholly unexpected. Truly
it may be said of him. a great and a good
man has fallen. Mr. Dickinson s remains
were interred atBinhamton, with civic hon
ors, on Saturday afternoon last.

an harm in this unless they allow them
selves to be drawn into the extremes, and
nurture an appetite which will run away
with their discretion. To all such we
would say that the grand desideratim is

HORRIBLE MURDER AT PHILADEL

Thrilling vcarance of the Victims
Account oj the Discovery of the Deed.
The most horrible murder, or series of
murders that has ever occurred in this
vicinity since Philadelphia was founded,
or, it would not be going too far to as
sert, that over took place in the United
Stales, was brought to light yesterday af
ternoon. Au entire family (excepting
an absent son), consisting of father, moth
erland four children, have been literally
buthcrcd, also one, and possibly another
individual. Seven persons in all, cor
tainly, were tl.c victims, and there is good
reason to sunposc that further mvestigii
lions will develop the fact that eight in
dividuals were sent from time to eternity
by the hand of the murderer at, or very
nearly at the same time. No parallel
case can be found on record. The bod
ics were most horribly mutilated, and the
scene witnessed by our reporter, who
visited the spot as soon as the discovery
was made known, was absolutely sicken
Mr, Christopher Dccring resided with
his father in Jones' lane, about one half
mile from the old Point House road, and
within five hundred yards of the site of
the well-rcmemhcred Point House, about
three miles below the Navy Yard, on
what is termed the 'Neck." Mr. Dcer
ing's family consisted of himself, wife and
five children, a relation named Elizabeth
Dolan, and a boy who has resided with the
family for several 3-cars, and known to
the neighborhood by the name of Corne
lius. Jn addition to the above, a German
was engaged by Mr. DecriDg to do work
around the premises, and who, with the
boy Cornelius, is missing at the present
Yesterday afternoon the fearful discov
ery was made that the entire family, with
the exception of the eldest child, a boy
named "William, ten years of age who hap
pened to be payingji visit to a relative,
named Duffy, in West Philadelphia (aud
possibly the hoy Cornelius), were brutal
ly murdered, aud their bodies thrown to
gether in the barn, ft short distance from
. l -w -
the owclimg house. In each instance
the heads were knocked in and the throats
cut, in some cases to such an extent that
they were nearly decapitated. There
they lay. a mangled mass of humanity,
piled one on top of the other. The father
of the family and Mrs. Dylan were found
lying side by side in the barn, terribly
disfigured, and covered with ha-, and in
an adjttining sort of corn crib was found
the body of Mrs. Deer ins:, surrounded by
four of her children, all so terribly muti
lated that identification was almost im
possible ; the ages of the children rang
ing from eight years to an innocent of
fourteen months. The names of the per
sons murdered are as follows :
Mr. Christopher Deeving, aged 37 years.
31 rs. Juiia Decring, aged 44 yours.
John Deering, aged S hears.
Thomas Deering, aged G years.
Annie Decring, aged 4 years,
Emma Decring, aged 14 mouths.
Mrs. Elizabeth Dolan, aged 25 years.
The last seen of any members of the
family was last Friday morning, when
some of the neighbors observed two of the
children going over the meadow near the
house, apparently chasing up some ducks.
.Mr. jJcenng was, however, seen as late
as last Saturday morning, when he called
upon .Mr. Mitchell. No 1G29 Arch street.

It seems strange that the fact that the
family were missing was not discovered
at an earlier date, but it is accounted for
in this wise : Mr. Deering was a man of
rather retired, quiet habits, and did not
mix much with his neighbors. It was
noticed that the windows of the dwelling
were open, and day by day passed with"
out any suspicion entering into the mind3
of the neighbors that anything was wrong.
Yesterday afternoon a neighbor hap
pened to visit the premises lor the pur
pose of feeding a colt that he had charge
of. He entered the barn with that ob
ject in view, when his attention was at
tracted to something unusnal at the south
west angle of the barn. He proceeded
to make au iuveitigation, when he dis
covered the feet of Mr Deering project
ing through the hay. lie beat a hasty
retreat and informed au acquaintance
named John Cool of the circumstance.
A further investigation was made, when
the bodies of 2Ir. Deering and 3Irs. Do
lan were fouud lying side by side, with
their throats cut in a most horrible mau-
ucr, and entirely covered with hay, with
the exception of 3Ir. Decring's feet.
The neighborhood was at once aroused,
and as soon as the knowledge of the oc
currence became generally known, parties
were despatched to the city authorities
with information of the discovery.
The premises were at once taken pos
session' of by the neighbors, and no one
permitted to enter the barn until the ar
rival of the- proper authorities.
Chief Detective Benjamin Franklin
Police Lieutenant Frank Hampton, De
tective John Lamou and a. reporter of The
Inquirer proceeded at once to the scene
of the murder. The barn was entered,
and the bodies of Mr. Deering and Mrs.
Dolan discovered as described.
The dwelling was thiin visited, and ev
ery room carefully searched, but nothing
worthy of publication was discovered be-
yond the lact that the rooms were in a
disordered condition. Au axe was found,
however, resting on a bench outside of
the bouse, which contained marks of
blood, and it is believed that the murders
were committed with just such a weapon
as the one-found. The question was then
raised, what has become of Mrs. Deering
and the children Y Au examination was
at once instituted, and after the lapse of
perhaps a half an hour s time, they were,
discovered frightfully mangled in the corn
crib which adjoins the barn, aud within a
few feet of the spot where "the first nam
ed bodies were discovered.
Various theories are afloat as to the cir
cumstances connected with the murder ;
but nothing defiuite can be known until
the matter receives a full investigation at
the hands of the authorities. The most
plausible theory is that some person (and
suspicion points very strongly to the Ger
man engaged bv Mr. Deering to perform
work on his farm) induced Mrs. Deering
to visit the barn, and then murdered her
with an axe, and as fast as the children
emerged from the house to see what be
came of their mother, they were' dragged
into the barn aud likewise despatched.
The murderer then probably lay in wait
ing for the arrival of Mr. Deering and
31rs. Dolau, and after Mr. Deering had
put away his horse and wagon and pro
ceeded to the barn in quest of his fam
ily (not fiuding them in the house), he
was met at the barn door and knocked
in the head, and his throat then cut and
his body pitched into the barn, after
which Mrs. Dolan was probably treated
in like manner.
The baby was either taken from the
house by the murderer and dispatched iu
the barn, or else Mr3. Deering had the
child in her arms at the time she was as
saulted. An elderly lady, a relative of
the family, has resided at the house un
til last "Wednesday, when she left.
Tn the stables, ucar the barn where,
the bodies were found, three or four head
of cattle were found in quite an emaciat
ed condition. When taken out they
drank water to such an extent that it was
evident they had not received attention
for several days. J.' our horses were also
taken from the stables almost in a famish
ed condition for want of food aud water,
all going to prove that several days have
elapsed from the time the murder was
committed until the discovery of the same

collect photographs of all officers of such

that the friends of the gallant dead send
such photographs. Each card to he care

Who Should Furnish Revenue Stamps for
Judge Lewis has decided that no per
son is bound to give a receipt for funds
paid, a receipt being au instrument of ev
idence useful only to the persons to whom
it is given, therefore, if a. man needs a re
ceipt, it is his place to furnish the stamps
for it, if one is required. Dut if a per
son gives a receipt without requiring that
the party to whom it is given shall fur
nish the stamp, the maker of the receipt
must, himself stamp the paper before he
delivers it. If he fails to stamp it before
he delivers it he is liable to the penalty
provided by the law for the omission, but
the other party may stamp it immediate

The "Wife in Business.
The New York Supreme Court has just
decided an important case under the law,
in which a married woman, in business
conducted by herself, had amassed the
means of furnishing her house. In an
action for debt against her husband by a
third party, tho furnituro was seized and
part of it sold. She claimed damages,
and the full value of the furniture sold,
with iutercst, was awarded her. The de
cision of the court was in effect that the
wife's property, earned by herself, was
not liable for the husband's debts.
Great Haul of Fish.
The greatest haul of rock fish or striped
bass, that is said ever to have been made
iu the Delaware, occurred on Monday,
the 2Gth'of March, when about twenty
thousand pounds were taken at a single
sweeo of the net, and being brought un
to the city, just at a time when rockfish
were scarce, yielded the fortunate fisher
men, Cramp & Co., the handsome sum of
three thousand dollars. This is Drob-
dy the largest pecuniary gain ever
made by a single cast of the seine.
Doctor J. A. Reed, of Baltimore, de
