[SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE NEWS.]
WASHINGTON, October 14-io P. M.
The fact that the news dispatches from Penn?
sylvania and Ohio reached us, for the most part,
through Radical sources, has thus far given an
unfavorable coloring to the returns.
The Democrats to-night are much elated by pri?
vate and trustworthy advices indicating that,
after all, Packer (Democrat) has beaten Geary
(Radical) for Governor Lu Pennsylvania.
Ia Ohio, too, the prospect, In the light of the
latest returns, looks decidedly brighter; and even
bets are offered to-night that Pendleton is elected.
It is certain, at least, that the contest is so close
as to require the official count to determine the

WASHINGTON, October 14-Noon.
The result in Pennsylvania between Packer and
Geary is considered doubtful. The election of Wil?
liams (Republican) to the Supreme Court is con?
ceded. The Press estimates Geary's majority at
two to three thousand. The Radical State Cen?
tral Committee estimates the majority at four
thousand. The Age says: "The contest ls close,
and a few hundred votes may settle the matter."
A prominent Radical telegraphs the President,

AN ELECTION ROW.
PH i LADE LP n IA. October 14.
During the session of the judges of election for
receiving the returns, a sheriff's officer attempt?
ed to serve a writ of injunction to prevent count?
ing the vote ;. The officer was resisted and eject?
ed from the room, to which he had obtained ad?
mission under pretence of being a return Judge.
He came back with a posse, followed by a crowd,
broke open the door, and served the writ. He
then ordered the arrest of sundry persons in the
room, whom he charged with resisting him. A
reporter of the Associated Press was beaten in a
shocking manner by the police and locked up.
The return judges ?re now Lu court to await its
action. There ls great excitement in Chestnut

THE OLD DOMINION.
RICHMOND, October 14.
The premiums awarded at the State Fair at
Staunton to-day amounted to two thousand dol?
lars. Charles M. Stieff, of Baltimore, received
the first award for pianos; A?T. Routh, of Vir?
ginia, for the best useful inventions, and Benja?
min Smith, colored, for the best specimen of b?r?
rela The fair closed with practice hy the ladies
in archery, a tournament and masked ball.
A telegram tb the Dispatch says: "Governor
Walker made an address to-day at Danville. In
the political portion of his address he said he felt
nothing but pity for the opposition party in thc
late canvass, who were led by a set of cormorants
and carpet-baggers, who had nothing at stake but
their own selfish interests. He- rejoiced that thc
election settled the fact that Virginia was here?
after to be ruled on principles of right and justice,
and civil and political equality. What she now
needs is plenty of honest, industrious and intelli?
gent laborers, no matter from what source they
come. He appealed to the young men of Virginia
not to forsake the State, and hot to forsake thc
plough and fly to the large cities of the North,
where vice and demoralization awaited them."
Judge Rye, the State Treasurer, also spoke,
much in the same strain.
The Thunderer on the Fenian Amnes?

Fighting in Spain-Eugenie at Con?
LONDON, October 12.
The Times, in an editorial on the Fenian am?
nesty meeting, says: "The Crown is invited to
pardon rebels who do not pretend to be penitent,
not because conspiracy is crushed, but because
it is still formidable enough to rally sympathiz?
ers. No one doubts the right of government to
suppress with vigor outrages against law and or?
der. Had the forbearance or the Crown been in?
voked in a becoming tone, with a recognition of
its rights to protect peaceable and loyal citizens,
amnesty might be a message of peace. At pre?
sent we see no presumption that lt would be re?
ceived in that spirit by the demanden*. While it
must operate as a discouragement to those who
helped to crush the Fenian outbreak, there can
be no greater injustice or more impolitic step
than such an act, if Ireland ls still Fenian at heart
or hostile to union. We believe the majority of
the Irish would rejoice at the suppression of Fen
lanlsm, and that some who signed the amnesty
petitions would be thankful if the petitions would
The Times hos an editorial to-day on financial
matters in the United States. The writer says:
"There may be circumstances in the financial po?
sition of the United States authorizing so glaring
a departure from the sound rules of public econ?
omy; but lt is difficult to deny that the mere
struggle of gamblers, by an act of government, ls
magnified into an event of national importance.
If Mr. Boutwell had persevered, more money
would have changed bands, more fortunes been
made or marred, other brokers gone mad, ab?
sconded or committed suicide, and the threat
against Fisk might have been executed. It is not
easy to decide whether this will be for good or
evil. It might have allayed the speculative fever,
sobered the gambling madness, weaned some
helpless dupes from the exchange, rid lt of some
arrant rogues. The lesson will not be altogether
lost. Had the leeson gone on to the end it might
have been more impressive, and its precepts en?
hanced by higher cost."

TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS,
We, the undersigned, citizens of Laurens, of
the immediate vicinity of Martin's Depot, de?
siring that falsehood should not pass for truth,
and having read and heard of the late scanda?
lous and false publication made, through thc
columns of a Radical press, by one Joe Crews,
against our neighbor, Dr. Benjamin S. James,
lessee of the Laurens Railroad, and knowing
Dr. James to be a high-toned gentleman, and
that he would not condescend to notice any?
thing coming from the dirty source from which
the article above referred to purports to come,
feel it due to truth and to the reading public
outside of our district, where the character of
Dr. James, for sterling integrity, moral worth,
and for all that is just, true, generous, honest
and noble, may not be known, to state that the
article written against him over the signature
of the said Joe Crews is as false, scandalous
and infamous as he, the said Joe Crews, is
worthless, and unworthy of belief or of any
confidence. The whole publication of Crews
ls a tissue of falsehoods.

The Bishop of Orleans Adjures him to
Retrace his Steps-Hyacinthe's Reply.
The French journals publish the following
letter from the Bishop of Orleans to Father
ORLEANS, September 25, 1869.
My Dear Brother-As soon as I learned from
Paris what you were about to do, I endeavored,
as you know, to spare you, at all cost, what
would be, on your part," so great a fault and
misfortune, and al the same time a cause of
profound sorrow to the church. I sent at thc
moment, and at night, your former co-dlscl
Sle and friend to slop you, if it was posstbh>.
ut it was too late; the scandal was consum?
mated, and now you eau measure, from the
grief of your friends in thc church, and the joy
of all her enemies, thc harm you have don?.
To-day I can do no moro than pray to Got!,
and conjure you to arrest yourself on the de?
clivity you are on, and winch leads to abysses
that the troubled eye of your soul has never
seen. You have suffered, I know; but let me
say to you that Fathers Lacordaire and De Ra
vignan, I also know, suffered more than you.
and raised themselves thc more In patience
.and In strength by theil' love of the church
and of Jesus Christ. How have you failed to
feel the injury you do to the church, your
mother, by these accusatory anticipations, and
the injury yon do to Jesus Christ, in placing
yourself alone before him, in contempt of His
church ? But I desire to hope, and hope that
lt will bc nothing but a transient deviation.
Come again among us; alter causing the Catho?
lic world this sorrow, give her a great conso?
lation and example. Go, throw yourself at
the feet of the Holy Father. He will open his
arms to you, press yon to his fraternal heart,
and restore your peace of conscience and thc
honor of your life. Receive from one who was
your bishop, and who will never cease to love
your soul, this testimony and these counsels
i rom a true and religious affection.
FELIX, Bishop of Orleans.
Father Hyaciuthe has written the following
Jfonseio7ieur : I am much touched by tho
sentiment which dictated the letter yon
have done me the honor of writing, and I am
most grateful for the prayers which you are
kind enough to offer up In my behalf; but I
can neither accept the reproaches nor thc
counsels you address to me. What you call a
?reat fault committed, I call a great duty fai?
ned. Accept, Monseigneur, the homage of
the respectful sentiments with which I remain,
in Jesus Christ and in His church, your very
humble and obedient servant,

effective in a large concert room or theatre.
She sings ballads admirably, as well, perhaps,
as they need be sung. Therefore she attempts
bravura airs, and does not sing them nearly

Attempted Suicide, and his Confession.
Pantin is the name of an obscure suburb of
Paris, not lar from the gates of the city pro?
per. In tlie early gray dawn of the morn?
ing of the 20th of September, a laborer in
this locality named Langlois set out for his
morning's work. It happened that lils way led
across a Held which had recently been ploughed.
The ground was damp and heavy, and he
plodded along slowly. As he passed the mid?
dle of thc field, he saw something white. Very
naturally he went up^tO it, and seeing that il
was a handkerchief, he picked it up and looked
at it. He saw that it was stained with blood.
He stopped and looked around thc place where
he found it. The earth was thrown about as
though it had been lately disturbed, and, on
searching more carefully, the workman found
that directly under the spot where he lind
picked up the handkerchief a human body lay
covered with a few inches of earth, and appa?
rently just buried. The man was very much
frightened, and started for thc nearest police
station, running os fast as he could.
THE VICTIMS OP THE MASSACRE.
The station was not far off, and he soon re?
turned with aid. Careful search was made,
and within a short distance of each other were
discovered the dead bodies of a woman and
Ave children, who had evidently just been
murdered, for the corpses were not yet cold.
The woman was apparently about 38 years
old. She had a beautiful face and splendid
dark hair. Her black eyes were open and
staring with a lo?k of despair. She evidently
belonged to a family In easy circumstances, as
she was clad In a black silk dress, and had
money, a watch and jewelry upon her person.
There" were eighty wounds on her body, the
frenter number having boen made with a
nlfe. A few were the effect of blows.
Close to the murdered mother lay thc first
of the five nyirdered children-the eldest son,
probably 16 years old. On his neck was the
dark blue murk of the place where the hand?
kerchief had evidently strangled him. Hi.;
hands were tightly clasped, "and on his face
was a look of the most awftu agony-his eyes
starting from their orbits.
Next was another boy. whose age was
thought to be ll. From his appearance it ls
thought that he was burled alive.
There were two other boys, one 14 years old
and one 8, both hacked as If by a knife, and
But saddest of all was the poor little girl.
She was fonr years old, and must have been
very prelty. Hers was the only face that was
calm, and her death must have been instanta?
neous. There was but one wound on her
body-her stomach was completely ripped
wno DII> TnE nEEn ?
Tlie day had well advanced before th?; bodies
were all removed. The excitement in the
neighborhood became intense. The place is a
somewhat obscure one, but nevertheless there
are plenty of dwellings near lt, and the rail?
road depot, and the military post of Aubervil
llers are both within earshot of thc spot where
the bodies were disinterred. Two hundred
and Illlty yards off is a cotton mill, ut which a
night watchman is stationed; and he, as well
as the porter on duty nt the railway depot, and
the sentinels at Aub?rvilllers, were within easy
hearing distance ol'any outcries at Hie scene
of the mnrder.
But the truth is that at about a quarter to 12
o'clock on the night of the 19th. the watchman
In the colton mill ol' MM. Cartier & Bresson
did hear cries from this very spot. He heard
the screams of children, and the words "Mam?
ma ! mamma !'" And the railway porter heard
cries, too, among which he distinguished the
voice of a man; but he thought there were
some drunkards quarrelling in the field. Such
an occurrence was not very uncommon, so he
did not go out to seo what was taking place.
The night was pleasant, with a clear sky and
bright moonlight. There were at least six
persons who ought to have known if anything
wrong was occurring in that field that night.
People were likely to pass throught it at any
hour. Thc crime "must have been committed
within a space of time which could not exceed
four hours, as was known from the fact of per?
sons having been near there that length of
lime previous to the discovery by Langlois.
Of all thc persons who crowded uround to
view the bodies, not one was able to recognize
them, or to say that he hail ever seen any one
of the six persons who had been murdered
thus, close to the gates of Paris, on a fair
moonlight night, with dwellings on every
hand, and with six persons within earshot of
Hie place of the awful deed of blood.
The murder was committed ut near midnight
on Sunday, September 19th, and up to the fol?
lowing Wednesday no relations had proclaim?
ed the victims missing, their names and even
their nationality remaining unknown to the
French police. But there was a clue. Tlie
buttons on thc coats of thc four murdered boys
bore the name of Thomas, tailor, ut Roubaix.
Roubaix Is a town on the Belgian frontier, near
Lisle, in the northeast part of France.
In connection with this circumstance, it was
ascertained that about a week before a young
man of twenty..with a fluffy moustache, came
to a furnished lodging house opposite the sta?
tion of the Northern Railroad in Paris, and
kept by a M. Rigny. He gave his name
as M. Kinch, engineer, Ruc de l'Alou?
ette, at Roubaix. Hu said IK; had a
good deal of night work to do, and
therefore wished to sleep in the daytime. The
people of thc hotel did not like tho look
of him. He carno daily for a few minutes
only, received a good many letters, and
paid his very small expenses day by day. At
u in the evening ol' Sunday ii lady with live
chUdren came to the hotel, and inquired for
M. Jean Kinck. When told he was not within,
she 6aid. "I am not surprised; I am Iwo hours
before my time; I will call again." At 8 o'clock
she returned, and then expressed surprise at
not Anding If. Kinck. "He Is, perhaps." she
said, "iu the dining-room; I will go and
see." Not finding him. she returned to the
children waiting in the hall. They were laugh?
ing, and in high spirits. The landlady asked
her if she would not wait and take some re?
freshment, but she said. "No, I dare say it
would be expensive; and, besides, I do not
know where 1 am going to bc Taken to dinner."
.She then went away, having first enraged two
bedrooms for herself and children, and
she left In the hotel a small parcel, and a
basket containing some linen and a child's
paletot. She never came back. The next
morning (Monday) at 8 o'clock, Kinck, ac?
companied by another mau, came lo the hotel
in a great hurry. He took the key of his
room, went up stairs, changed his clothes, and
at the end of live minutes left the house with
lils companion. He never returned. In the
drawers of his room a bloody shirt and trow
sers have been found, and also a piece ol' cra?
vat, which it ls supposed was used to strangle
one of the victims. Later In the day a tele?
gram from Roubaix arrived to the address ol'
Kinck, in these words : " Wait ; we are not
ready." On Tuesday a letter, on blue paper,
with the Roubaix post mark, came for Kinck.
This letter was given unopened to the Judge
of Instruction. A hal left by Kinck nt the
hotel bears, in the lining, Hie address of a
Roubaix maker. On the blood-stained clothes
in tho hotel room, portions of brains were
found adhering lo the clots of blood mixed
with the earth by which they were soiled.
THE ROUDAIX FAMILT.
The police sat earnestly about investigating
the awful mystery. By the 24th of September
the bodies were identified as those of the wife
and children of Jean Kinck, who resided with
his family at Roubaix, in the Rue de l'Alouette.
The father and a sou by a former marriage,
named Gustave, carried on thc trade ol brush
manufacturers lhere, aud were doing well.
Kinck wanted to extend lils business; and as
he wished to turn the house at Roubaix into a
manufactory, desired his wife to go with the
children to il house in Alsace, which he owned.
She did not like the project, aud a quarrel, al?
though not a very serious one, ?.asued; and

September 19, as above stated, she ca
Paris with her children, and went to t
dross given her, the Hotel du Nord, k

It is supposed that Kinck and his wi!
family met on Sunday at Pantin. Mrs.
had failed to find her husband nt the

The police were on the keen lookout foi
murderers; but the week was passing a
and all that was known were the probabil
above given. The first traces ol' the gi
parties were found at Havre.
At 10 o'clock in the evening, aa a ma
gendarme, named Ferrand, was going
rounds to drive tardy sailors on board t
ships, he saw a man taking a glass of beer
sailors' drinking pluce in the Rue Royale,
did nor like the looks of him, and asked
what he was doing in Havre.
"I am on the lookout for work."
"Have you any papers ?"
"Well, you must have a passport."
..How so ? There ls no need of a passj
to travel In the interior of France."
"Tliat'8 more than I know. As you hav?
papers, you must come alon" with mc to
police office to establish your identity."
They started out together, and as they w
along, the gendanne Ferrand kept up a m
inquisitorial series of questions, which
quasi prisoner answered in an embarras
and contradictory manner.
"Where do you live ?" asked Ferrand.
"Where did you last come from ?"
"Andyour business ?"
"I am a mechanic."

THE ilORRIT! STORY.
Tills man's name proved to be Traupmani
and his confession shows that he was one ?
those engaged In the terrible deed of blood i
Pantin; and later Intelligence tends to imp!
cate him as the solo criminal. Papers wei
found beneath Traupmiinn's shirt, nil bearii!
on the affairs of the Kinck family-as, for it
stance, the sale ot a house at Roubaix, a n
celpt for 8000f (?340) for the said house, sev<
ral extracts from mortgages on lnnds belon;
lng to the Kinck family; also, n silk handke'
chief in which wits fastened about ?13 in golt
two watches, one of silver and the other ?
gold, with a gold chain and key, and a knil
hacked nt tin; edge.
This evidence, together with many cuts an
bruises upon his body, told strongly against th
prisoner, and on the subsequent day an intel
rogatory took place before thc magistrate. Th
following particulars of lt are from the Com
rler de Rouen :
"Jean Baptiste Traupiiiann conics from Cerna
(Selnc-et-Olsc.) This individual had known Kinck
the lather, with whom he had worked at Houbai:
and at Paris, and whom he had lately met in th
capital. The latter had expressed a desire to ern!

on his wife, whom he licensed of infidelity. Th
interviews of the two men were held at the Caf
Parisien. With a view lo obviate all suspicion

with the owner's consent, and went ti? lind a lodg

The sou did not come to Paris at the same time a:
his father, but only shortly before the crime ww
committed. Except the precise nature of tin
vengeance, everything was arranged between tin
accomplices. The woman Kinck was written tc
requesting her to come io Paris. As she hesitar
cd, a second letter was sent by Traup
maun, under the pretext that her husband
had sprained his wrist, and announcing
that the latter had bought a house at Pantin. An
appointment was made at thc station, where she
was to arrive at 10 o'clock on Sunday night. But
as she left by an earlier train, she came before
the stated hour, and as no one was there to meet
her, she went to thc hotel, but the person she In?
quired for was not at home. She then returned
to thc railway to wait for her husband. At thc
time lixed Traupniann appeared and put the
whole party Into a cab, to go and join the father
and son. The spot where the crime was to bc
commited was selected beforehand. Moreover,
thc elder Kinck and Traupniann had arranged
that the latter should conduct thc motheraloue to
the place." Then follows an account of thc mo?
ther's arrival with the two children, and Kinck's
exclamation of his being betrayed. The narrative
then proceeds: "At the same moment thc father
plunged thc knife into thc back of one of the chil?
dren, and then, with the rapidity or lightning,
assailed his wife. A loug struggle ensued be?
tween them, und the prisoner asserts that, with?
out the assistance which he airordcd Kinck, thc
latter would have been mastered, and perhaps
killed bv the woman. Traupniann refused to go
for the other children, so that the son Went; this
latter llrst strangled lils brother with a silk hand?
kerchief lent him bv the prisoner, and which was a
yellow one with flowers on if, similar to that In
which he hail the money tied up when he was ar?
rested. Traupniann asserts that he remained
until three o'clock near the scene of the crime,
which was committed at one, because, before
arriving at thc place lixed for a subsequent meet?
ing, he had lost lils way. and walked about for
two or three miles lu a wrong direction. He re?
turned to his hotel about 8 in the morning; he
saw the younger Kinck, who told him that his
father had remained on the watch to know wheth?
er the crime was discovered. At li the son came
and informed him that the murder had been dis
covered. The arrangement at first was that all
three should go away together, but under the cir?
cumstances thev decided to separate. They met
at the Cafe Parisien, and Traupniann received the
papers and title deeds found in his possession
and about 300 francs. Thc wound on bia hand
and the scratches he received In snatching from
the hands of Madame Kinck the knife which she
had wrested from her husband. Kftck, after
having literally hacked his wife and children to
pieces with his knife, completed his work with a
pickaxe. Then thc prisoner started for Havre,
whence he calculated on escaping to America,
He does not know what has become of the Kincks,
bat thluks that they are still in Paria."
THE MTRDERER AT PAMS.
Thus it has been seen that lt was Trnup
mann, who. at thc hotel, had given thc name
of Jean Kinck, the father.
On Saturday, Traupmnnn was taken to Pari".
The trained reached there at half-past 4. Spe?
cial precautions were taken to prevent the
prisoner being seen, and he was taken out of
thc station by a private door to avoid the
great crowd which, in a highly excited state,
awaited his arrival. He was put into the cab
and driven away almost before thc arrival of
the train became known.
While leaving the train the countenance of
Traupmann was perfectly livid, and his legs
shook so that he had to be supported. m
Inside the morgue thc accused was awaited
by thcJuge d'Instruction and the Procureur Im?
perial. Traupmann was then shown the bodies
of Mme. Kinck and her children laid out on the
marble slabs, and he was asked if he recognized
them, "The prisoner," says thc account in the
Gaulois, "walked a few steps along the room,
and with a sana froid no one present exhibit?
ed, said, without "moving a muscle of his face
or faltering In his voice, as he pointed with
his finger to each of the dead bodies, 'That is
Mme. Kinck, that ls Emile, that is Henry, that
is Alfred, that is Achilles, that is little Mary."'
The account further states that he did not even
take off his cap, and that his cynicism shocked
all who were present.
In lils examination herc he afterward said:
I was nothing more than Jean and Gustave
Klnck's accomplice. I held them (the de?
ceased.) I,pushed them toward thc hole,
while Kinck, father and son, gave the blows."
THE CONFESSION FALSE.
At the time that the confession of Traup
mann first became public, disbelief in Its truth,
now Justified, was openly proclaimed by many.
It indeed seemed strange that neither of the
Hincks, father or son. appeared after the mur?
der ; but might not this be because they too
were dead ? A letter from one of the relatives
of the Kinck family, printed on the 27th of
September, said :
"All that has'teen printed on the origin and
circumstances of the crime Is absolutely false
and altogether absurd. I was verv Intimate with
that unhappy family, and a more united circle
could hardly he found. Therefore, all the alleged
disagreements between them arc untrue; and, if
thc father and mother differed about the plan of
settling in Alsace, It never went so far as t?
create a serious dissent. Jean Kinck and his son
had an excellent character. * * * * Mi
friend Kinck left for Alsace abont a month ago,
to prepare his establishment there. Some time
after I was talking with Mr. Loft, a workman
here, and a cousin of Kinck, and asked him if he
had heard from his relative. 'No,' was the reply;
'but my wife, who ls staying at Guebwlller,
writes that she knows where Kinck Is, the latter
having let her know, but that he wished it to be
kept secret.' I only laughed at my friend's whim;
hut two circumstances communicated by Mme.
Lceft to her husband seem very strange to
me, and throw ?\ strong light on the
whole affair. A young ^.man called at a
notary's in Guebwlller with a power of attorney
from Jean Kinck. ?You arc Gustave Kinck ?'
Inquired the notary.? -Yes, slr,' was the
reply. However, the notary was not pleased with
the young man's appearance, had some suspicion
something was wrong, and did not give up, thc
money he ?une for. Four or live days afterward
another Gustave Kinck appeared. The notary
nesltatrd again, though he thought this one had a
family likeness with Jean Knick, and said, 'Come
again with your father.' Since that day, the no?
tary has seen no one-neither father nor son, true
or false. Two or three days later a registered let?
ter arrived at Roubaix for Gustave Kinck, who
was not at home; but lu thc afternoon an indi?
vidual applied at the otllcc and said, 'My name ls
Gustave Kinck; have yon a letter for mc?' Thc
clerk, who knew a little the real Gustave Kinck
by sight, saw that the man before him was not
the same, and refused, in consequence, to deliver
the letter. * * * * Since her husband left for
Alsace, Madame Kinck received not one single let?
ter In lils own handwriting. She wus uneasy at this,
and mentioned lt to her neighbors. When Kinck
gave her lils address at the Hotel du Chemin de Fer
ilu Nord, she asked him why these letfers were
not In his handwriting; the answer was that he
had sprained his wrist, and used thc hand of a
friend, which reassured herat once. Jean Kinck has
not been seen at lluhl or at Guebwlller. He must
have been murdered on the journey; and the
power of attorney shown at the notary's was
either forged or stolen. As to Gustave, nobody
saw him since he went to thc notary, and he is
totally unlike what they described the man to be
who stayed at the hotel in Paris. Now a few
words about Traupmnnn, who has been arrested
in Havre. He was a friend of the family, and did
business with Kinck. I am convinced the father
and son have been killed in Alsace, as the mother
anil children were at Pantin. The man arrested,
Traupmann, and his accomplices, have stolen thc
power of attorney, and attempted to steal the re?
gistered letter. Afterwards they drew thc family
to Paris In order to murder them, and, If the
crime was not discovered, they would have ob?
tained with forged powers of attorney the money
for thc property sold.''
And now later Intelligence proves that Traup?
mnnn did not reveal au. There are
The French Journals state that thc body of
Gustavo Kinck, the son, has been found at
Pantin, with a knife sticking in his throat. It
has been Identified by Traupmann. It was found
quite accidentally by a passer-by, and was
about thirty yards from where the other bodies
were. As soon as the news of Its discovery
was made known, the crowd, already consid?
erable, became enlarged until it numbered
thirty theiisand persons, and military assist?
ance" had to be obtained to convey the corpse
to the morgue.
THE WANDERING JEW.
It ls stated that Traupmann, previous to his
arrest, became acquainted with u man named
Dourson, wieh whom he took breakfast. At
this breakfast they had a philosophical discus
tion, in which Traupmann remarked that he bad
read the " Wandering Jew," and that he made
the character of Rodin his Iden!.
Our readers will recollect that Rodin. In the
story of thc " Wandering Jew." was thc head
of the order of Jesuits, and devoted himself
with great assiduity to procuring the death of
those who stood between his order and an im?
mense sum of money which would come into
Its collers were they removed. And It is re?
markable that Tniupaiann's crime, suggested
by reading about Rodin, was due to the desire
to procure the money of his victims.
Traupmann is described as a man of a small
statue, with a keen eye, well formed features,
an ordinary forehead, an ill-made figure and a
slouching gait. He stated to the authorities
that his name was Jean Baptiste Tropmann,
(spelling it with an o instead of an a.) that he
was 22 years of age, born at Cernay, and that
be was by trade an engineer. He is undoubt?
edly one of the worst villains on record.
The body of the elder Kinck remains to be
found. Then thc bloody record will be com?
Since the above was in type, a cable tele?
gram has been received announcing the dis?
covery of the corpse of the elder Kinck in
Thc Views of Churles Dickens.
Mr. Charles Dickens, in the course of his
Inaugural address at the recent opening of
thc Birmingham aad Midland Institute,
It ls much too commonly assumed that this
age is a material age, and that a material agc
is an Irreligious age. . I have been pained
lately to see this assumption repeated in cer?
tain influential quarters. I confess that I do
not understand that much-used and much
abused phrase, "a material age." I cannot
comprehend-If anybody can, which I very
much doubt-its logical signification. For In?
stance, has electricity become the more mate?
rial in the mind of any sane, or moderately sane
-[laughter]-man, woman, or child, because
of the discovery that in the good providence
of God it was made available for the service
and use of man to an immeasurably greater
extent than for his destruction ? Do I make u
more material journey to the bedside of my (ly?
ing parent or child when I travel thither at the
rate of sixty miles an hour than when I travel
thither at "the rate of six? Rather, in the
swift case, does not my agonized heart become
overftungnt with gratitude to that supreme !
beneficence from which alone can have pro?
ceeded the wonderful means of shortening my
suspense ? What is the materiality of the
cable and the wire compared to the Immate?
riality of the spark ? What is the materiality
of certain chemical substances that I can
weigh and measure, Imprison or release, com?
pared with the immateriality ol* their appoint?
ed affinities and repulsions prescribed to them
from the instant of their creation to the day of
judgment ? When did this so-called material
age begin ? With the use of clothing ? With
thc discovery of the compass ? With the in
vention of the art of printing ? Surely, ic nas
been a long time about, which is the most
material object - thc earthing tallow candle
that will not give me light, or the flaming gas
that will ? [Cheers.] Now don't let us be
discouraged or deceived by vain, vapid,
empty words. The true material age is
the stupid Chinese age, In which no new
and grand revelations of nature are granted,
because they are ignorantly and insolently re?
pelled. Instead of being dllligcntly and humbly
sought. [Cheers.] The difference between
the antique fiction of the mad braggart defy?
ing the lightning and the modern historical
picture ot Franklin drawing it towards his
Kite, in order that he might the more pro?
foundly study what was set before him to
study, (or lt would not have been there,) hap?
pily expresses to my mind the difference be?
tween our much maligned material sages and
the certainly, in one sense, very immaterial
sages of the Celestial Empire school. Consider
whether lt is likely or unlikely, natural or un?
natural, reasonable or unreasonable, that I,
being capable of thought, and finding my?
self surrounded by such discovered won?
ders on every hand, should ask myself the
question sometimes, and put to myself the
solemn consideration, "Can these things
be among those which might have been
disclosed by Divine lips nigh upon two thous
and years ago, but that the people ofthat time
could not bear them ?" But, whether that be
so or not, I being so surrounded on every hand,
ls not my moral responsibility tremendously
Increased thereby, and with lt my Intelligent
submission of myself, as a child of Adam and
of dust, before that shining source equally of
all that is granted and all that is withheld,
who holds In His mighty hand the unapproach?
able mysteries of life and death ? [Cheers.
Let me give thc students of the industrial
classes generally a short motto In two words,
"Courage, persevere." I do not give them
that motto because the eyes of Europe arc
upon them, for I do not In the least believe
it-[laughter]-nor because the eyes of Eng?
land are upon them, for I do not in ihe least
believe that either; nor because their doings
will be proclaimed with blast of trumpet at the
street corners, for no such musical performance
will take place-[laughter]-uor because self
improvement is at all certain to lead to
worldly success: but simply because it is good
and right of Itself, and, ?herefore, will assuredly
bring with lt Its own resources and Its own re?
wards. I would further commend to them a
very wise and witty piece of advice on the
conduct of the understanding, which was given
more than half a century ago by the Rev. Syd?
ney Smith-wisest and wittiest of the friends
I have lost. Speaking to a circle of voluntary
students, he says: "There is a piece of foppery
which is to be cautiously guarded against, the
foppery of universality, of knowing all sciences,
of excelling in all arts-chemistry, mathemat?
ics, algebra, dancing, history, reason, riding,
fencing, low Dutch, high Dutch, and
natural philosophy. In short, the modern
precept of education rery often Is-take the
Admiral Crichton for your model, and be
ignorant of nothing. My advice, on the contra?
ry, is to have the courage to be Ignorant of a
great number of things, In order that you may
avoid the calamity of being Ignorant of every?
thing. [Cheers and laughter.] To this I would
superadd a little truth, which holds equally
good of my own life, and of the life of every
eminent man I have ever known. The one
serviceable, safe, certain, remunerative, at?
tainable quality In every study and In every
pursuit, ls the quality ot attention. My Inven?
tion or imagination, such as it is, I can most
truthfully assure you would never nave served
me as lt has but for thc habit of commonplace,
humble, patient, daily tolling, drudging at?
tention. [Applause.] Genius, vivacity, quick?
ness of perception, and brilliancy In the as?
sociation of Ideas-such mental qualities, like
the secret of the apparition of the armed head
in Macbeth, v 111 not be commanded; but atten?
tion, after due term of submissive service, al?
ways will. Like certain plants which tho poor?
est peasant may grow on the poorest soil, it can
be cultivated by any one, and it ls certain In Its
good season to'bring forth flowers and fruit
[Applause.] I cannot but reflect how often
you have probably heurd within these walls
one of the foremost men and certainly one of
the best (if not the very best) speakers in
England. [Cheers.] I could not say to_ my?
self, when I began Just now In Shakespeare s
line, " I will bc bright and shining jgold"
[laughter]-but I could and did say to myself,
" I will be as easy and as natural as I possibly
can, because my heart has long been in my
subject, and I bear an old love towards Bir?
mingham and towards Birmingham men and
women. The ring I now wear was a Bir?
mingham gift, and if by rubbing lt I could
raise the spirit that was obedient to Aladdin's
ring, I assure you that my first instruction to
the geni on the spot would be to place himself
at Birmingham's disposal in the best of causes.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
In your issue of the 7th instant, the letter of
yonr Mayesville correspondent is headed, "A
Ghastly Apparition and what Came of It-A
Warning to Dealers in Stolen Cotton."
As the last phrase seems to reflect on the
character of the merchants visited, I write to
say something of the character of the gentle?
men referred to. The Messrs. Mayes are well
? known throughout the whole community as
honest and upright merchants and true Chris?
tian gentlemen. They do a large business
here, and have lost heavily by liberally credit?
ing such of the planters as required assurance.
They buy cotton by the bale and aro forced to
take it In the seed, as up to a short time ago
lt was the currency of the country. The
smaller planters, as well as the freedmen,
often bring to the country stores a few pounds
of seed cotton, to procure some articles they
need, without walting till they can get out a
bale. Were they to refuse the trade, lt weald
only pass on to some neighbor not so foolishly
scrupulous. Again, these gentlemen close at
early candlc-lignt, and have been repeatedly
assured by the neighboring planters that their
stores are a benefit to the community. Their
business partners are large planters, men of
wealth and Integrity, who, If these stores were
repositories of "stolen cotton," would speedily
withdraw their countenance and support from
