Execution of a Determined Woman.
The last morning of her earthly exis
tence arrived. She had slept,~1 way told,
much and calmly during the night; and
when aroused at six by the watchers, ex
pressed berseif "greatly refreshed by eight
hours oftunbrolon rest," and then rose and
dressed herself with remarkable alacrity.
At seven I saw her again; she looked
frightfully pale, and her fqtures had the
fixedness and rigidity of marble, but neith
er tear nor sigh escaped her. Her nerve
was fully equar to her hour of extremity.
She replied promptly to a question put to
her, and then made it het last request that
I would abstain from touching upon any
religious topic !
Meanwhile the hum of the dense multi
tude gathered around the building was
distinctly audable even in the prison ; and
the depressing effect of that low, booming,
deepening murmur, heard at such an hour,
and under such circuntstauees, none can
estimate save those who have listened to
it. At eight the melancholy procession
began to move. As the criminal was on
the point of jining it, the under-sheriff, by
the express wish, it was understood, of the
judge, stepped lIorward and asked her
whether she acknowledged the justice of
her sentence !
"I assert now," was her reply, firmly
and distinctly given, "as I have done from
the first that neither directly nor indirectly
had I any knowledge orsharein Mr.-Amp
thill's death. If he died by poison it was
neither mixed nor presented by me."
The querist seemed disconcerted by her
reply, and was apparently about to re
m6del his question, when the prisoner
abruptly turned from him with "Enough
of this! (entlemen, I am ready I fain
would shorten this bitter hour." Another
tninute, and we stood upon the drop.
Mine has been a cheqered life; many
have beet the painful scenes I have had
to w itness and many mty distressing recol
lectionsdf the gloomy past; but never did
I feel more sensibly the painfullness of my
unenviable appointment than when I stood
hesidc that wretched but most determined
womat. The bearing of the prisoner, the
crime for which she was condemned, the
doubt which hung over her case, the sullen,
deep, and swellng roar of the moh, a roar
in which no woeed could he accurately
caught, and nto voice was distinctly audible,
but which. ifn understood at all, its strange
and peculiar monotony betokened hostility
and impatience-earl and all of these at
teudant circumstances aggrava:ed the hor
ror of the scene.
It was as I expected. The moment
she made her appearance, a yell ofexulta
tion bur.t from the heaving, restless. exci
ted multitude below It was no partial
exjpression offeeling-it was not the splen
etic ehullition of a fen -coarse minded and
tnerciless individual.-it was loud, vehe
mieot and general. Had her personal ap
pearance been prepossessing-had she
been youthful or har.dsomeo-had she look
ed gentle and resigned. I am persuaded.
so capricous is the feeling of a mob, that
her reception would hate been less fe
rocious and appalling, but the spectators
thought that in her marked and repulsive
vissage they recogul sed the features of a
ruthless murdereress, and vented that
opinion in the mwnner most consonant to
She felt this. "And they too condemn
ite!" Was her remnark,--thirst for my
blood-are eager to witness my dying
struggles. Be it so! Be quick, sir," said
she addressing the hangmat'; '"these wor

The fatal noose was placed round her
neck-a handkercheief wnes put inte her
hand.-The under-sheriff and his party re
tired; but still I hovered near her. The
pale lips moved, I hoped-I will ever
hope-itn prayer. The words "mercy
pardon," faintly reached me. Was thtat
pr. ud spirit at length betnding ftefoyre its
Maker ? Did it pass aiway in accents of
prayer and suplicatiotn ? I trust so. I
watched her every movement wuht intense
and1 painful earnestness, but not long. A
few secoends, and she gave the fatal sigrnal,

fellows, into the dread presence of her Ma
Gallantry among Soldiers.-One of the
British Regiments ini Canada, the 71st, re
cently ordered to the WVest Indies, has
been so l'eng in Canada that a number of
soldiers had formed mat rimouial alliances
without leave, and of course much alarm
was created amonac their fameilies when
the order caime. To the surprise and ad
mnirntion or every body, tweo hundred men
stepped from the ranks of the reserved
battalion, which remains at Chambly and
offered themselves as substirutes for their
married comrades. By this truly generous
and soldierlike conduct, says the Miontreal
Gazette, the separation an~d consequent
misery to families was prevented, aud all
permtanemr volunteers for Catnada, and old
qoldliers who were perrmited for genet al
good conduct to remaia in the colony pri
or to discharge, or wlto were round unfit
for troptictal service, were replaced..

A Hebrew wedding took place at the
Synagogue, .in New York, on Wednes
day. T he ceremonies, as usual on such
.occasions, were very impressive. A
long recitative in Hebrew was chaunted
by the priest, from the altar; after which
a canopy, 120 years old, resting on four
uprights, was brought out and held over
the heads of the reader and the groum, all
wearing their hats. The bride was then
brough in by her brides-maids and family,
and, closely veiled, took her place also un
der the canopy. Thelpriest them chaun
ted a prayer, and after that a glass of
wine was brought him, which be tasted.
and then the bridegroom and bride. The
wedding-ring was then placed by the
groom on the fiiger of the bride, accom
panied by the admission that it was the
evidence of their betrothing. The priest
then chaunted the seven blessings from the
prayers which were appropriate to such
an occasion. The wine was again tas
ted. and after that, the glass in which it
was containod was dashed to the ground
and broken in pieces. It is done as an
emblem of the moirtality of our tace, and
a memento of the destruction of the Tem
ple. This ended the ceremony, and the
married couple immediately left the Sy
The true Sun gives, the following ac
count oft hese ceremonies among the En
We understand it is rather an innovation
upon the ancient practice to have these
weddings solemnized in their Synagogues.
Among the English Jews, they usually
take place at houses of public resort. The
London taverns are quite celebrated in
this respect. It is usual in England for an
engagement to exist for six months or a
year before the marriage, and the ceremony
of betrothing is one in which there is much
rtjoicing among friends.-A month before
the wedding-day, there is a circular sent
round to the acquaintances of the betrothed
inviting friendo to the ceremony. It is
also customary there to read the marriage
contract under the cannopy,(after placing
the ring upon the finger) in which there
are very. curious stipulations fur the bene
fit of the female, either as wife or widow.
Bands of music are not unfrequently em
ployed at these weddings, and the pieces
performed are solemn Jewish melodies.
All the guests bring presents proportioned
so their means; and such sometimes, is the
profusion oftheir liberality, that the amount
received is very large.
"It must not be forgotten that the Jews
always considered marriage as a matter of
obligation, and the earlier theiryoung peo
ple marry, the more honorable it is in their
estimation.-There were, also, some curi
on s customs and laws established by Mo
ses, most of which have fallen into disuse
since the final dispersion of their race."
Ancient Ruins.-A gentleman who has
traversed a large portion of the Indian
country of Northern Texas, and the coun
try lying between Santa Fe and the Paci
fi-, informs the editor of the Houston
Telegrnph, that there are vestiges of an
dent cities and ruined temples on the Rio
Puerco and Colorado of the West, On
one of the branches of the Rio Puerco, a
few days travel from Sante Fe, there is an
immense pile of ruins that appear to be
long to an ancient temple. The building
occupies nearly an acre of ground-por
tions of the wall are still standing, consist
ing of large blocks of limestone regularly
hew n, and laid in cement. The 'ruins
bear a general resemblance to those of Pa
lenque on Otolun. There are many sim
ilar ruins on the Colerado of the West,
which empties into the Californian sea.
Neither the lidian's resident in the vicina
ity, nor the oldest Spa'nish settlers of the
nearest settlements can give an account
of the origin of these buildings,
Anecdote-The Archbishop of Dublin
tells ofa horscman who, having lost his
way, made a complete circle: when the
fir-st round was finished, seeing the mark~s
of a . horse's hoofs, and tiever dreaming
that they were those of his own baeast, he
rejoiced,' and said, "This at least shows
me that I am in some track;''-when the
second circuit was finished the signs of
travel were doubled, an'd he said, "Now,
surely I am in a beaten way;" and, with
the conclusion of every 'round, the marks
increased, till he was certain he must be
in sotme frequented thoroughfare, and ap
proaching a populous town; hut he was
all the while riding after his horse's tail,
and deceived by the-track of his own er
ror. So it may be with great men who
pursue their own tails in dinner circuits,
newspapers and reviews, repeatingEi,
same error until they become so misguided
by it, as to take the impression of their
own deviations for proof that they were
going right.-DeL. Jour.
