brought before a United Slates Commissioner
this afternoon for examination. Messrs. Spen?
cer, Dospassos and Broke appeared for the
prisoner, while the Bank of Eugland was rep?
resented by Messrs. DaCosia and Mowbray.
Sergeant Webb, of tbe London detective loree,
testified that he bad arrived from England
?esterday. bringing a warrant from the Lord
[ayor ol London lor McDonald's urresi. Tho
prisoners counsel moved to dismiai the com?
plaint and quash tbe warrant, giving various
reasons, all of wbtch were overruled by tbe
court. Mr. DaCosta produced a telegram
irom London, stating that a full deposition
would be sent from London by a special mes- .
Benger, who was to start this evenmg, and he '
therefore ? *ked an adjournment for two weeks
to collect evidence, *c. The court granted
the motion, and the prisoner was remanded.

FAREWELL TO COLLEGE
The chapel of the Charleston College was
occupied last evening by a large though not
a crowded audience, assembled to bear the
farewell address to the graduating class ol the
college by the president. Professor N. R. Mid?
dleton. The c?as?, with the professors of tbe
college, tbe Hon. W. D. Porter, and other
members ot tbe board of trustees, were seated
amoog the audience. In bidding farewell to
the graduates as students Professor Middleton
chose Liberty as the subject ol his address to
enable bim to directly enforce upon the minds
of the young gentlemen the leading princi?
ples which should govern their future course
through Hie. He made a skilful analysis of
his subject at the outset, showing that
liberty was an Inherent principle of man's
nature. It could not admit of bias by the
precepts and examples ol others, but implied
freedom of thought, freedom ol will, and free?
dom oi actiOD. He established an accurate dis?
tinction between liberty in the true sense and
those baser political passions which often de?
base the term; introducing In Illustration a
vivid portrayal of the characters of Vasa and
Cinclnnaius, on the one band, and of Nero
and the tyrants of the French Revolution on
the other. In conclusion he reminded the
graduates that the safety of the nation, for the
future, was partly In their hande, and urged
them to keep the true definition of liberty
constantly before their minds, and shape their
course towards it. The address occupied
about three-quarters of an hour, and was
listened to wlih marked attention and Interest.
THE PRICE OF GENEROSITY.
Two men, representing themselves as sail?
ors ol a ship which had been burned at sea,
visited several stores on East Bay on Monday
last, soliciting aid to enable them to reach
their homes. In order to enlist the sympa?
thies of their auditors they told a thrilling tale
of "hair-breadtb escapes by flood and fleld,'a
and displayed several scars upon their hands
and arms as inflicted by the flames of a burn?
ing vessel. Some ol' the gentlemen whom
they visited proved Incredulous, and refused lo
respond to their entreaties, while others were
moved to pity and willingly gave them small
sums of money. During Monday alternoon they
called at the office ol Mr. Turner, the super?
intendent of the gas works, on Washington
street, above Calhoun. Mr. Turner generous?
ly gave them one dollar apiece, and sent them
away rejoicing. A little while after they had
gone, however, Mr. Turner became aware
that a roll of greenbacks which bad been
lying upon bis desk, together with two checks
upon the First National Bank, bad vanished
also. The roll contained one hundred and
thirty dollars, while one of the checks wai
for two hundred and fifty-one dollars, and the
other for forty-five dollars and flay cent?.

THE COURSE OF THE STAPLE.
Cotton Planter* and Cotton Specula?
[F. om the New York Bul e in ]
Throughout ihe Sooth there seems to be a
feeling that at New York combinations el
speculators ate using all their power lo de?
press the vaiue of ihe great Southern staple.
We draw ibis inference from ihe fact that
meellrgi ol buyers and planiere are belog
held throughout thc colton States, al which
resolutions are adopted asking that buyers of
l> futures" will In all cases demand the colton
on their contracts, aud advising producers lo
keep back their crops and prevent Ihese com?
binations from holding cotton enough to meet
their contracts, and so thwart their designs.
The friends ol this movement seem to ig?
nore the fact that, on all these contracts there
are two sides, ihe "bulls" to advance ihe
price, as well as the "bears" to depress lt
and thal la the long run the side which bas
the mest correct view ol the actual situation
ot the cotton trade must come out victorious.
They also overlook the consideration lhat a
single one hundred bales will (and we heve
seen cases where lt did) sei Lie contracts for
over 3000 bales; and, indeed, there ls no limit,
but lime, to ihe amount ol contracts it might
Bettie. There Is no doubt ibat the system ol
contra?is in vogue here ls gradually reducing
ihe volume of business In actual cotton, A
comparison of the number of bales sold here
since and before the adoption of this system
would at once settle lhat point.
The outburst of leellng among Southern
shippers seems to us without warrant. Be?
fore this "future" business we had the Rame
class of operator/; lhere were "bulls" and
"bears" as now; and ihe change recently
adopted In the mode of conducting tbe busi?
ness places the Southern interest at no more
disadvantage than formerly; Indeed, as the
actual holders of the colton Bold by the
"bears" tor fut ure delivery, the South has
now a very Important advantage.
It Is evident lhere ls and has been for some
time something keeping back the good cot?
tons; lor ihe aclual receipts, both here and at
other seaports, show that the colton received
ls fully 25 per cent, lower in grade than last
or former years. It may be mat ibis can be
accounted for by the tact that, with such a
large crop as is generally esilmated, the
planters have HOI beeu able lo give lt the care
that ls necessary to produce a good crop.
But, whatever may have been ihe cause of
this deterioration in ihe grade ol the cotton
coming to hand, lt is cleur lhat this fad ii self,
and not ihe mere action ot speculators, (who
can influence any market but temporarily), is
lo be accepted as a very important cause con?
tributing to the decline In colton. It is also
lo be Kept in mind thal-wlih ihe large crop
in mis country (our receipts now pointing to
an important increase over last year) and an
evidently abundant crop in nearly all the
other colton producing countries, heavy stocks
In Europe, (but not, however, quite as large
as last year ut this Lime,) a very unsatisfactory
trade in Manchester, and the fact that the
expense per loom la building oew factories
in England is largely in excess of what it
was five years ago, (since which lime there
have been very few new works put up)
all facts seem to Indicate plenty of raw ma?
terial and a scarcity of looms to spin it. It
is true there have been some few factories
put up In the South, but ihey can only supply
a nome demand, and are but as a bloom in a
one thousand-acre field; their effect on tbe
great cotton trade can hardly be lett beyond
their own neighborhood.
Whether the "bulls" or "bears" will pre?
vail remains to be seen; but lt does seem lhat
the "shorts" 'hears) have much In their fa?
vor. They, of com Be, have agreed to deliver
what they have not; and If the "bulla" can
oontrol all the cotion, they can make their
strength felt at the end of each month; but
can they, wlih the large crops, bold enough
to do this ? Have they the requisite moneyed
strengih ? If they have, they will certainly
temporarily put up ihe price; but, li not, ls not
tbe natural tendency from these causes to?
ward lower prices i Time will tell.

What to v ear and How to Wear lt
Dresses Worn by Charleston Belles.
The wealber I bia spring has been, so ca?
pricious-warm one day and cold the next
that but few spring costumes have appeared
upon our streets. Still, as the season advances
the cry "What shall we wear and bow shall
we make It?" ls heard In the land, and our
lady friends will doubtless thank us (or a few
hints on the subject.
The fashion authorities concur In assuring
POLONAISES WILL STILL BE WORN
of every style-loose, half-fltting, and tight,
although dividing favor with basques and
oversklrte; indeed, according to Madame
Demorest, no dress wlih an oversklrt ot any
description can be entirely unfashionable.
For the house, the princess dress of a few
years ago will be much worn both for morn?
ing and late Into the afternoon. This ls a
graceful, cloae-fltilng Gabrielle, with waist
and skirt cut in one; ls buttoned down be?
fore; sometimes has a vest added In front;
bsB large, square pockets, and ls slightly
trained. A pretty mode ls floe, gray poplin,
with a vest aud deep cuffs of lilac silk; also
dusters o? silk flounces that come up very
high In front and recede at each side, coming
lo a point behind. Down tbe back IA a row ot
large bows of silk arranged like a watteau.
Sleeveless Jackets are worn with these, as
with other dresses, bolh for the street and
parlor. They are pretty, stylish and becom?
ing-freshen up au old dress*, and Improve a
new one. One ot our most distinguished
Bichmond belles recently appeared lo one ot
these, of black velvet trimmed wlih passa
menterle and guipure lace, and with a wat?
teau of black silk extending from the neck
down, and trimmed In the same manner. It
waa worn with a street dress of black silk.
IBID AL DRESSES.
Orange-blossom faille, of the cream-Doted
whiteness ol the flower In Its perfection, ls
the stipeib fabrlo of bridal dresses for tbe
spring weddings that occur soon afier Baster.
French laney rejects all elab?rale laces for
bride's dresses, and suggests as moro con?
gruous for this last dress of Girlhood simple
ruches and plises of daluty Mallnes tulle, with
many garlauds ot orange-blossoms. For this
o ress of silk, tulle, and flowers, tbe design Is
trained skirt with high basque, or else low
Greek corsage. The dimensions of the skirt
are two yards lor Its greatest length, and five
and a halt lor Its width at the foot. It may
be left lu plain, soft, richly-flowing folds, or
as elaborately trimmed as the wearer chooses,
bul all over-skirts, except the merest aprons,
are now omitted, as the saan and veli form
At a late fashionable wedding at St. raul's
(be bride wore a dress ot white gros grain
trimmed high on the iront breadth, with
flounces of the same, hemmed on either edge,
drawn In the middle by a cord-arranged In
points and finished at ihe Bides by a perpen?
dicular puff. Tbe long train fell In a watteau
fold, and the low corsage and short sleeves
were ornamented with handsome polnl-lace.
The veil, also of point lace, was fastened lo
ihe hair in front by a cluster of orange-blos
Boms, aud fell gracefully on the tournure be?
Among the dresses which Northern furnish?
ing houses are preparing for spring are the
new loulards ol dark gray, browu and blue
tor house or street; aud, lor midsummer, are
black grenadines, with batistes, linens and
Bolt-flnlshed percales. Piques are not liked as
well as formerly, as they are thick, warm and
wash yellow; thinner white goods, bouk-mus
lln, bishops lawn, nainsook In cross-bars,
and polka-dotted Swiss muslin, wlih other
antiquated Bolt labrics, are to De used instead.
Blick grenadine, either plain or figured,
will be the most popular; the newest ones
have lace-like Btrlpes over an inch wide, with
a plain, smooih grenadine stripe between.
Various other Blrlpes are shown, but mostly
an black; sometimes a calor ls introduced,
but not generally. The most cosily grena?
dines have flounces and oversklrte uf tbe
same, elaborately brocaded either In black or
colors; the black are most stylish. White
grenadines brocaded In colors will be fash?
ionable for midsummer.
But little change In style, lt Is said, will be
Introduced Into the spring suits; St will be
more in ihe minor details. Oue change we
heartily hope will noi be only a rumor, but be
entirely aud successfully carried out : lhat ls,
lhat dresses are again to be of a clean walk?
ing length, so Bays rumor, and many dresses
have been so made. It ls too early yet to say
if the fashion will be carried through. Long
dresses were never meant for fitreet wear.
Our lair Parisian Bisters never wear a long
dress for walking in; il is worn for riding and
home wear-the place where lt rightly be?
longs- not In doing ihe duly ot street sweep?
ing on our dirty thoroughfares.
Pannier puffs are again to be revived-the
huge puffs of lour jears ago-certainly not
prelty lor a short dress; but so lt ls to be
worn, for a long train dress, to be looped
over a saab, lt ls both pretty and conve?
Melon puffs are revived for trimming some
of the handsomest dresses, and offer a Blight
change trom kilt plaitlngs and gathered
flounces. These puffs are made of straight
widths of ihe Bilk joined at the selvedges, aud
lined with foundation muslin. They are
formed by taking slight seams on the wrong
side of the fabrlo at In terrais of two or three
inches, leaving ihe space between to form a
puff on ihe right Bide. AB lhere are no gathers
In these smootb puff4, the stiff muslin lining
la necessary to keep them well rounded, and
somet? mes a mick - cording cl candle-wick
covered with Bilk is used to separate ihe puff-'.
Wide puffs are more stylish than narrow
Skins are trimmed very high In front,
often to ihe waist-to be worn with tbe polo?
naise open belore, which are now in vogue.
Some have ihe iront breadth formed entirely
of kilt plaiting, others are puffed or flounced
very high. Equally stylish suits are flounced
to ihe walsl behind, and worn with an apron
oversklrt with sashes.
For sireet-dresses the coat-sleeve Is still de
rigueur-generally fliting rather closely, and
finished at the wrist with a deep cuff and a
bow, or buttons; and again, on aome sleeves,
there ls the cap at ihe top-so long discarded
that Its return seemed even more tbao doubt?
ful. For a house-dress the sleeve Is less se?
vere-not quite so closely-fitting-the outer
seam being sometimes lett open from three
IncbeB to me elbow, and finished with a more
ornamental cuff, A stylish finish to a loosely
filling coat-sleeve ls a bias piece, about ten
Inches in depth aud about the same In
breadth, luid on lo ihree or lour plaits, from
ihe tuner lo ihe outer seam, trimmed with
whatever trims the dress, and confined on
the outside of the ann with a bow. For a
dinner dress, or lor ihe evening-with a high
necked wai-t, or Ihe bosom en Pompadour
or en surplice-ihe aniique or elbow-sleeve,
finished wilt) flounces, bows. Ac, with a
lace nnder-sleeve, or the half-flowing sleeve,
finished in a similar manner, will be won.
A later sleeve is cut lo flt smoothly In the
arm-hole, bul it is puffed over ihe elbow and
gathered Into a band, with flounces, a cuff
en revers, or some other fanciful finish be?
For wash dresse.? blouse waists with simple
oversklrts and belled polonaises are as popu?
lar as ever.
LACES, BUTTONS AND BOWS.
Black velvet and lace promise to be the fa?
vorite garniture of the season. In fact, the
rage for lace, bolh black and wblte, is on the
Billions in all sizes are used to an almost
unlimited extent. They are of velvet. Jet.
while; or smoked pearl-shell, or the material
of tbe dress, as ihe occasion may demand.
Bows are used everywhere. Wide ribbon
Bashes are also a leading feature. These are
never arranged after the old way, but used to
sustain tho drapery of the skirt, oversklrt or
polonaise; fastened on one side, or merely
thrown around the waist and knotted low
down In the baok.
Walstcoasts of colored China orepe are very
much worn for dinner and evening toilet;
they are embroidered or trimmed with Valen?
ciennes laoe. Some are made to wear over
the boolee and not under lt, which ls more
convenient than If a special coat bodice were
made tor it. Fichus and bows are made In the
game style, with a mixturo of lace. The sew
cravate are of embroidered Calna crepe, and
I trimmed with a narrow lallle, festooned with
j wbite silk. The favorite collars are fraises
made of pialilngs of either open worked
i batiste or of muslin trimmed with Valen?
ciennes lace, or all of Valenclenn?s, or all of
j tulle Illusion. As the hair ls worn eo high,
I these trills look very ornamental around the
TBS ii AIR.
The Greek flllet-a band of black, velvet-is
In favor for the hair at present. The velvet
ls nearly an loch wide, tied behind, and long
ends left banging.
The bair ls massed on tbe very top of the
head, concealing the parting Une. Braids and
colls are the most usual style, except for eve?
ning coiffures, when finger puffs are consider?
ed most appropriate. For these the bair ls
combed high on tbe head, tied, and the puffs
formed by winding the bair on a small curl?
ing stick. If the bair ls sufficiently thick a
tress ls left to be loosely wound around the
cl uster of puffs, otherwise Its place ls supplied
by a braid.
One or more curls at the back relieve tbe
exceeding plainness of the hair behind, and
Btray hairs are kept In plaoe by a pair of old
fashioned side-combs Dushed high up and con?
cealed beneath the encircling braid.
In bonnets lace Is the favorite trimming.
Long lace bridles are re vi ved.el trier to be tied
under the chin oe fastened lower down with a
bow or small bouquet, as they were a lew sea?
sons ago. A novelty this season Is gros grain
ribbon with double lace, blue, rose, or green
on one side and white on the other. This ls
very serviceable in trimming bonnets that re?
quire two shades.
New jet ornaments for bonnets are shaped
precisely like ibe back oi a high Spanish
comb. They are to be draped with lace, and
placed In the back of black lace bonnets. "" "
There ls a caprice just cow for wearing a
cluster of flowers failing very low on the
back of tbe head, where the hair ls combed
up from the nane of tbe neck. This is some?
times the only blt ol color seen on black bon?
nets, and even this ls halt concealed by ihe
hanging drapery of Spanish veils.
IN CHILDREN'S DRESSES
There Is little change from the fashions of
last year. Babies, In their first short dresses,
wear Gabrielles or loose dresses gathered Into
a yoke formed of Insertion and lucks. These
last are either confined by handsome sashes
or worn loose, according to tbe taney of
mothers. For children of ibis age, white only
Is admissible. For children ol all ages em?
broidery is the most fashionable trimming.
The dresses ol lillie girls from three to len
years ot age are amusing miniatures of those
worn by their mothers. Polonaises, over
skirts and basques, embroidered, flounced
rufflVd and puffed, all enier l mo tbelr toilets.
The high-crowned Normandy cap of lace over
silk ls the favorite bonnet for the street. For
Behool girls over ten extreme simplicity is tbe
fashion. Little boys up to three years old
dress exactly like tuelr sisters; from three to
five they wear kill-pleated skirts ot pique,
sou flannel or cashmere, with jackets and
vests of tbe same, and phllabega or long plaid
stockings. Boys In their first pants still wear
Knickerbockers, with Jacket and vest, For
ordinary wear these suits are plain or very
simply trimmed; far street occasions they are
elaborately braided In patterns.
A MUSICAL PRODIGY.
The Birth, Marriage and Sad Death of
Carlo Patt I-A Chequered Career.
[From the St. Louis Globe, March ie ]
The funeral of Carlo Patti, the celebrated
violinist, who died at an early hour on Mon?
day, ot consumption, look place yesterday
morning from Si. Bonaventuras Church, cor?
ner of Sixth and Spruce streets. The orches?
tra ol Tbeod. Habel man's Apollo Theatre kind?
ly volunteered lo assist in the funeral ser?
vices of the departed musician, and ander
the leadership ot Mr. Schraum, assisted by
Mr. La Fonialn, Mr. Habelman, Mr. Hermann
and Mr. Sch?ler, furnished the music tor the
burial service. Mr. Charles Kunkel also as?
sisted, playing the Kyrie Eleison. Only a few
friends gathered to do homage to the de
Carlo Patti waa born in tbe green-room of
ibe Theatre Royal, Madrid, during ibe per?
formance of tbe opera of "Norma," In the
winter of 1842. His mother, then a popular
primadonna, un the evening of his birth, lent
her Huperb voice to the first two acts or that
sublime creation, but was forced, lrom ber in?
disposition, lo desist from attempting any
lurther strain, and retired to ber room, where,
. shortly after, the celebrated violinist was
born. Carlo Paul, as ls well known, ls the
only brother ef Adelina Paul, (Marchioness
de Caux,) of Carlotta Patti, and of Amelia
Paul Strakosch. The family ls perhaps un?
paralleled In ihe musical annals of both con?
tinents. The deceased, in bis twentieth year,
bad attained such proficiency In the use ol his
favorite Instrument, the violin, that be led the
orchestra at the Varieties Theatre, New Or?
leans, lils falber, mother and sisters having
come to thlB country some years previous.
The fame of the latter ls well known.
In New York Carlo Paul woo deserved
laurelB as musical director of tbe Grand
Opera-House and leader Of tho famous Ninth
Regiment Band. His great success In that
city was marred only by a little occurence of
a pr?vale nature with ibe celebrated Prince
ot Erle, Jim Fisk-an affair which dragged
before ibe public the name ot bis wife, Miss
Nully Plerl*, now performing in tbls city at
Deagle's Varieties. Indeed, lt may be said
thai bis marriage waa an nnfortunate one tor
him, estranging bim, as it did, lrom the sym?
pathy and love ol bis sisters, whose antipathy
to his wife was openly avowed and strongly
Carlo Patti came to St. Louis, In company
with his wile, to direct tbe orchestra of the
Wakefield Opera-Houae, but th^ failure of that
I concern involved bim In financial entangle?
ments which bis roving ll te and eccentric babita
had not prepared bim to meet During the past
winter, lo retrieve his losses, be gave concerts
I in surrounding cltieB-In Belleville and else
[ where-but most of his attempts failed to add
anything lo bis exchequer, and he died, as
! many a genius has done before him, without
sufficient means to decently inter his own re?
mains. Word was sent on Monday to Carlotta
Paul, at Montreal, announcing bis death and
stating his circumstances,but me reply brought
only a paltry and Insufficient sum ot money,
and the generosity of his lrlends had to be de?
pended on for the proper honoring of his re?
mains. Tbe reason lor this treatment, which
may savor strongly of selfishness, and even of
cruel heartlessness, is generally supposed lo
be on account of ihe marriage of her brother,
and the antipathy above alluded to. Miss
Nully Pl eris, who opened at Deagle's Varieties
on Sunday evening, was, as we have said, the
wife ol Carlo Pain. On Monday evening she
was excused by ihe management, "owing to
ihe death ot a dear friend." She was much
attached to ber husband, and, notwithstand?
ing the distaste ot relatives, he cherished her
with seemingly true affection.

A MURDER MYSTERY.
A BROOKLYN PARALLEL TO THE EA
Charles Goodrich Killed at Night In
his Own House-Discovery of the Deed
by his Brother-Attempt of the Mur?
derer to Create the Theory- of Suicide.
NEW YOEE, Karoo 2).
A murder more fool and atrocious than that
for which Foster Buffered death this Doming
has been committed in Brooklyn within tba
last forty-eight hours. It has all Ibe elements
of a criminal romance, and ls io every respect
of a most extraordinary character. The vic?
tim ls Charles Goodrich, a wealthy and
much respected lumber merchant of tua city.
It seems that be was the owner of a row. of
three Btory brown stone houses In Degraw
street, between Fifth and Sixth avenue?.
About three weeks ago he went to Brooklyn
and took up his residence In one of them, tbe
flitb bouse from Fifth avenue. The house
was elegantly furnished, and lt was bia loten?
tlon to occupy lt until he could obtain a gulli?
ble tenant Not having a wife or fatallv;
and being a man of . secluded babita,
be lived alone, not even having a booie*
kpirper lo attend io- bis wanta. Wednesday
afternoon bis brother, the Hon. W. W. Good
rlcb, Baw bim alive for the last lime, on
which occasion he delivered bim some papen
connected with bis property. Yesterday
mort lng at about eight o'clock Hr. Goodrich
drove round to bis brother's residence for tbe
purpose of consulting bim on some basinets
matter. He kLoc&ed loudly at the hall base?
ment donrp, bot receiving no response went
away, supposing that his brother htd left at
an earlier hour or bad not returned home
on the preceding night This morning he
drove round lo the noose, and once more
falling to vain admission In- the usual way be
became alarmed and determined to effect an
entrance. He passed through tbe adjoining
house to the roof, and by opening Ute
scuttle and breaking In a door succeed?
ed in entering his- brother's residence.
He proceeded at once down ?taire,
examining the rooms on each floor. On
reaching ibe front room on the second floor,
where'hls brother was in the habit of Bleep?
ing, he lound everything In perfect order, the
bed not having been disturbed and his broth?
er's books and papers lo their usual placea?,
Strengthened by thia In his supposition that
bis brother was not at home, but still op?
pressed with anxiety, he descended to tba
lower part of the house. The parlor floor waa
In the same condition as these above, every?
thing being neat and tidy. He then descend?
ed to tbe basement, the only part ol the house
remaining unexamined. On attempting' to
open the door leading from the hallway to the
front basement room he found that lt was
locked from the inside. He therefore passed,
through the back kitchen, the door leading
from wblch Into the front basement was also
closed. It was not locked, however, so that
he bad only to turn the handle to effect en.
THE DREADFUL DISCOVERT.
On opening the door, a spectacle sufficient
.0 freeze the blood with horror presented
[itself. The lifeless body of his brother lay on
ibe floor, the back of his head resting on the
legs ol bis boote, his arms stretched by bia
Bide io an easy manner, and beside his right
hand, an Etban Allen seven-shooter, with
ihree of the chambers empty. Tbe body lay
flat upon tbe back, the legs stretched et Inti,
length, and slippers Billi on the feet ' lt waa
dressed in a dark, half-worn suit and none of
the oloihes were In disorder. Mr. Goodrich
made a harried examination of the body,
during which be found a wound, as If Inflicted'
by a sharp instrument over the righs eye,"
and a pisto"-eliot wound over the ear. . He
then locked ibe door, and hastened from Iber
house, proceeding at once to the coroner's
office and police headquarters, where he re?
ported the discovery. Oo tbe arrival o? th?
police, a closer examin?t ion ol the body and
premises were made, resulting In strengthen?
ing the suspicion of foul play, and at the same
time shrouding the affair in still greater mys?
tery. Everything In the boase waa in tbe
most perfect order. There waa oo evidence
that the deed was the work ot burglars, as no
Clothing or ether articles were mlsslug. IliUTV
lay the body, however, wilta Ita ghastly face
and gaping wooed?, testifying to the Coal
work of a murderer.
EVIDENCES OF ROBSLEY.
It was discovered by Hr. Goodrich that bia
brother's gold watch, wblch was..very valua?
ble, and his pocketbook, which ia not, bow
ever, supposed to have contained much
money, were missing. Thin fact therefore, in
connection with the direct cause ot death,points
to tbe character of t he assassin. Tbe room In
which the deceased lay was very plainly:
furnished. Oo ibe round table near the win?
dow were copies of several New York panera ot
Wednesday, and In addition 1.0 tho table there'
were only two chaira lo the '.oom. The body
lay sideways, the bead looking toward tbe
window and about two feet lrom tba heater..
There was no blood on the floor, with the
exception of the small pool beneath bis head
and another clot on ibe marble atone sur?
rounding ibe heater. A most mysterlooa
circumstance In connection with the affair la'
ibe tact ibat tbere was no blood on tbe face,
whlob seems to have been carefully washed
and dried after death. Even the hair waa wet
as if recently washed with a wet cloth. The po?
lice fonnd that one of ihe panes of glaaa In tbe
kitchen window bad been broken, evidently
with the intention ot reaching the latch from
ihe outside and thus effecting aa entrance to
the house. A portion of the wood work around
the latch had been cut, and a Jagged lack*
knife, which most probably had been used for
that purpose, lay on the floor Inside. A coane
wet cloth,! with unmistakable traces ci blood
on lt waa also found banging to a nail over
the sink. Aa evealng paper ot yesterday,
folded up and wet, was also found on the side
of the sink. This would seem to Indicate
that the deceased was alive at a late hoar yes?
terday afternoon. '
A THEORY OF THE MURDER.
On the arrival of Coroner Wblteball, who
took charge of tbe remains, a more rigid ex?
amination of the body was made. The only
two woonda found are those already referred
to. The first was a deep cat over the right
eye, and the second ibe pistol-shot wound on
the left side ol ihe head. Tbe first although
serious, would not have caused death. In'
view of the fact that lhere ls evidence of rob?
bery, and that the fatal wound waa on tbe left
side of the head, together with all the sur?
rounding circumstances, tbere seems to br
scarcely the slightest ground for one deteo-:
tive'a theory thal the deceased committed .aol- ?
cloe. The most popular theory, ia view of all
the facts developed at the latest writing, Ia
that Hr. Goodrich was assaulted and mur?
dered 00 the street, and that bia body was'
taken to tala home and there skilfully laid oat
la the position aa lound, for the parp?se o?
creating the Impression tbat be bad commit?
ted suicide. Tbe revolver found near bia right
hand belonged to the deceased, and lt ls prob?
able that the three chambers were emptied
by the assassin with the object of addlngfresh
mystery to the aflalr. The deceased waa lorty
two yean of age and a widower. He waa a
man of quiet sedentary habits, and occasion?
ally subject to melancholy, not however, to
any dangerous extent. His brother ridicules
the Idea that he com milled suicide, although
he doeB not know that his brother bad an en-,
erny In the world. The affair bas created a
profound sensation, and the friends of the
family are warm In their sympathies.
A POSSIBLE CLOE TO THE STCRDERER.
George Fletcher, a yoong boy who resides
ia the neighborhood, stated to a reporter thia
morning that when passing Goodrich's house
yesterday morning, on bis way to school, be
saw a strange man at the door, and 'that he
also saw the same man In tbe same place this
morning. The police have been iulormed ot
this fact which may prove a valuable clew in
working ap the case. The neighborhood in
which Hr. Goodrich lived ls very thinly In?
habited, and a man travelling thora could
easily be robbed and murdered without at?
tracting any attention. Dr. Shepherd bas
been aummoned by tbe coroner, and will
make a post mortem examination this after?
noon. In addition to the large deteo?ve lowe
at Dresent eoaaaed on the oase, Captain oas
?dy'Ind seve?af of his officers1 will give their
assistance In taunting down the murderer,
who, ltTe hoped, will" not long JW tbe
hands of justice. Coroner Whlteha^ em
panelled ajury ibis ^rD0?t,na ?i?"?p^
cable that two or three days will elapse oe.
lore the inquest 1? held.
