HORRIBLE MURDER IN PHILADEL?
PHIA.-The Philadelphia papers of
Monday give the following particu?
lars of a most horrible murder which
iras committed in that oity the previ?
ous day, a brief account of which was
A terrible tragedy was enacted last
evening at the North-east corner of
Tenth and Pine-streets. An old lady
named Mrs. Hill was found about 9
o'clock lying dead in the yard of the
premises. The body was shockingly
mutilated about the head, giving evi?
dence of foul play, and was besides
bruised, aa-though it had fallen some
distance on to the ground. The
corpse was discovered by the servant
girl on returning from church, and as
she was abont making the house se?
cure for the night. The girl giving
the alarm, Mrs. Hill's son-in-law, a
man named George Twitchell, came
down stairs iu an unconcerned way,
and expressing no particular surprise
at seeing the venerable lady's dead
body, assisted tho servant in carrying
it into the house. Nows of the terri?
ble- affair hod, in the meantime,
spread through the neighborhood,
and a highly excited orowd '. gathered
around the house. Police officers
were soon on the ground, and
Twitohell and his wife were arrested
on suspicion of the crime. Mrs.
Twitohell is confined in the house,
but Twitohell was taken to the Sta?
tion House, corner Fifteenth and Lo?
cust, where he now remains.
The room where the supposed mur?
der was committed is magnificently
furnished, and the entire premises
show all the evidences of refinement
and wealth. A sofa under the win?
dow is covered with blood, and the
act was evidently committed upon it.
From the sofa trails of blood readied
into the next room, and the window of
the room is marked by bloody finger
prints, showing where the victim was
precipitated into the court below.
Alongside of the sofa, in the inner
room, W?3 found a poker covered
with blood and hair.
The prisoner, Twitohell, will give
no account of the affair further than
that the lady committed suicide by
jumping out of the window. All the
evidence is against this view of tho
case, however, abd the crowds which
visited the premises last evening were
of the unanimous opinion that a vile
murder had been committed. Mrs.
Hill was very wealthy, and it is sup?
posed that the murderer or murder?
ers hoped by this unholy means to
obtain possession of her money. The
social standing of the parties gives an
especial interest to tho caso which, in
the horrid distinctness of its details,
has hardly, if ever, hod a parallel in
thia oity, j _
TREASURY ESTIKATES.-"Data," of
the Baltimore Sun, in his despatch to
that journal from Washington, says:
" The estimates of expenditures of
the Secretary of the Treasury for tho
next fiscal year, ending June 30,1870,
will be'from forty to fifi - millions
less than they were for tho present
fiscal year, unless the indian war
should beoome more formidable than
is indicated at present. Last year
the estimates for the expenses of the
Navy Department were placed at
thirty-five millions, but for the next
year it is understood that they will
not go much beyond twenty millions.
The Secretary's estimates for the
receipts and expeulitures for tho
coming fiscal year are based princi?
pally on the general average of those
for the past nine months."
Tho Clevolond Plaindealer says that
"Gen. Grant has written to Gen.
Slocum, a Democratic member of
Oongross, recently elected in New
York, intimating that 'there will not
probably be anything in the next Ad?
ministration whioh a moderate De?
mocrat may not support.' "
ELECTION JUIOTS IN ENGLAND.-It
seems that the elections in Great Bri?
tain have been attended with a great
deal cf disorder ; but thai is no new
thing, and wo have no evidence, so
far, that the riots and tho fighting
have been worse than a hundred times
before. There has been unusual ex
[ oitcment about this contest, and a
good many high-and-dry old tories,
I who believed that the reform bill
would enthrone tho mob, and whelm
everything respectable in a flood of
dirty democracy, expected a general
letting looso of tho disorderly classes
of society. A good many hoads have
been cracked and windows broken, a
scoro or so of shops and houses in
different parts of the kingdom demo?
lished, and one or two lives lost ; but
much worse things were done in times
past, when there was no household
suffrage. Elections, in fact, havo.al?
ways been conducted with more quiet
and decorum in the United States,
where the suffrage is nearly universal,
than in Great Britain, where it has
been greatly restricted, and the nearer
England approaches to our system
of popular government, tho more
smoothly she will find the exercise of
the suffrage to work.
ARREST OF A WHITE MAN AND SIX
NEGROES.-On Wednesday last, D.
A. Fosket, living at tho "old Lan
drum place," midway between* this
and Aiken, was arrested, brought to
this place and lodged in jail. At the
same time and place, were arrested
six negroes, who aro also in our jail.
Tho charges against Fosket, so far as
we can learn, aro that he keeps
around him a gang of negroes whom
ho has armed, and whom he con?
stantly drills. That he has incited
these negroes to kill certain of his
neighbors. That the houses of cer?
tain of his neighbors have been vio?
lently assaulted at night, and that
these neighbors are in daily fear of
their lives. That he has offered a
white man of good character, who is
willing to swear to the fact, $500 to
kill a certain well-known citizen of
this place. And that he is a mis?
chievous man, and foments strife and
discord generally in the section in
which he lives. The six negroes aro
of the said gang. Fosket bas not
given bail. These arrests were made
by Deputy State Constable Kennedy,
nssisted by his special deputies, D.
W. Christain and Noah Corley.
The Galveston (Texas) Civilian, of
the -Itli instant, makes the following
statement: "Although it may bo a
mattor of surprise to our readers, it
is nevertheless true that Messrs.
Heidenhemer <fc Co., of this city,
have just received a consignment of
coolies direct from China. They
were shipped direct to this port under
ordinary bills of lading, and are re?
garded by tho firm as simple mer?
chandize, to be sold for freight aiid
charges. Two-thirds of these per?
sons aro females, one of whom is said
to be very beautiful. They are to be
disposed of at auction. In Califor?
nia and Mexico coolies are quite com?
mon, but this invoice, wo believe, is
the first ever received in Texas.
What tho result will be, remains to
CHINA.-Advices from Hong Kong
are to the 15th of October. Mr.
Burlingame is still sharply criticised
by tho English press in China. A
European steamer had been fired
upon by Chinese gun-boats for not
dipping hor flag as they passed. Tho
Chineso Governor-General at Chin
Kiang had received instructions to
accede to the British demands in re?
ference to tho outrages on missiona?
ries. Tho rebels had entered Niug
JAPAN.-Advices from Yokohama
are to tho 28th of October. The
Mikado had been crowned Emperor.
Jeddo still remained closed, but was
ready for opening to foreign trade as
soon as tho conference between tho
authorities and tho foreign consuls
came to an end. Nagati and Hako
dadi had been seized ny tho South?
ern troops. Tho foreign citizens
escaped in safety to Sbaughae.
COTTON BURNT.-We regret to learn
that tho cotton-honso of Mr. Samuel
L. Reid, near Fishing Creek Churoh,
together with eight or ton bales of
cotton and fifty bushels of wheat, was
destroyed by fire on Saturday night
last. The burning is supposed to
have been the work of an incendiary.
[ YbrkviUe Enquirer.
A hotel in tho vicinity of Sonth
am'ptbn, Ontario, called Elkins' Ho?
tel, was entirely destroyed by fire
early yesterday morning, and two
j men were bumed to death. The pro
i prietor of the house and three otbeifl
I were also so badly horned that tho}'
i are not expected to live.
'.MANHOOD."-Another Now Medical
Pamphlet from the pen of Dr. Curtis. Tho
Medical limes says of this work: "This
valuable treatise on tho causo and euro of
premature decline shows how health is
impairod through secret abuses of youth
and manhood, and how easily regained. It
gives a clear synopsis of the impediments
to marriage, tho cause and effects of ner?
vous debility, and tho remedies therefor."

A MATTER OF INTEREST.
REV. Dr. Cumming, of London, saya: "Tho assurance of life is one of the moBt
Christian things that I know, for what is it? It is taking the load that would
CUUSII ONE FAMILY and spreading it over twenty thousand families; so that a
mero drop lights npon each, instead of tho ovenchelming torrent falling upon ono.
It seems to mc a beautiful illustration of beariug one another's burdens. And,
therefore, let every young man entering upon life, every head of a family, whether,
high or low, set his house in order so far as to assure his life."
Thousands of widows and orphans livo to attest the divine bene?ccnco of LIFE
INSURANCE. Without its protecting ogis, many of them would, to-day, be beg?
gars Supon tho streets, or occupants of poor-honses and penitentiaries. * No man
can foretell what will bo his circumstances at tho timo of his death. The rich man of
to-day dies the pauper of to-morrow, and tho family, delicately reared, become tho
unprepared victims of diro Want, with her train of countless evils. Such a result is
impossible, with a policy of Lifo Insurance. It, indeed, offers the ordu absolutely safe
investment which can be made for the benefit of ono's family and of his own old
ago. All other investments may result in loss or ruin. If aif would insure, who can
calculate tho immense suffering and crime which the world would be sparod!
