>? STRANOE STOBT A?TDCktoressiox ob
A MrnDERBB.~Tb? Trenton (N. J.) Sen?
tinel has tho following:
It is now forty years ago or moro that
the dead body of a stranger was found
in the woods, near Stonebrook bridge,
about one milo to the East of Penning?
ton, a village of this County. The body
was found in a' sitting posture, against a
beech tree. The faoe was distorted, the
eyes protruding as though the dead man
had died in agony. Bis hat lay a few
feet from him. His dress denoted one
in Comfortable circumstances. He was a
stranger, and no one ever remembered to
have seen him. There was no money
upon the corpse. The body, without
Bpecial examination, WBB buried-wo for?
get where, i There were no wounds upon
it, and no evidence of violence. And
now comes the strange elucidation of the
case.' ' A few days since, an accident
placed in ?ur hands a copy of the Man?
chester (England) Guardian. In that
number we. foja nd tho dy ia g cpu f essio n
of a mah named Daniel Hul&eman, ac?
knowledging to a murder perpetrated
forty years ago in the State of New Jer
y, United States of A mor icu. Tho
murderer was acquainted with his victim
in the old country, and came out about
one year before him. Hulsemau was a
tanner, "and worked in New York. "When
EberbaTt came over he sought out his
old acquaintance. Ho had about ?200
in money. On pretence of examining
the country and purchasing land, Hulsc
man started with Eberhart on a tour
through New Jersey. Ho had with him
a flask of poisoned brandy, as he had
resolved to murder, his friend for his
money. They first stopped at Prince?
ton, and tb en concluded io walk across
the intervening nine miles to Penning?
ton, the weather being pleasant, and
public travel being greatly circumscribed.
When within a mile of tho latter placo,
they stopped over into tho woods, under
a tree, to partake of somo victuals they
bau procured bofore starting. Hulsomau
thou passed his flask to his companion,
who drank liberally, and died within an
hour thereafter in fearful agony, : Hulse?
mau looking on the while. Ho. then
robbed him of his money and set him "P
against tho tree? os. before described.
There are still pld men about Princeton
w1 J will remember this event. It seems
almost marvelous that after a'lapse of
forty years, that this affair should have
come to light by a death-bod confession,
3,000 miles from the place of commission.
And yet it evcu sp. .
. The other .evening, iu ojr "private
crib," there was a learned - dissertation
aobjeot, "lied-bu gs,: ami their remarka?
ble tenaoity .bf life." One assorted of
his own. knowledge that they could be
boiled and como to life. Some had
soaked, them.-'for hours in turpentine,
without any):fatal consequences. Old
Hanks, Who had been listening ns an
outsider, hete gave in his experience in
corroboration of the facts. Says he:
"Some years ago, I took a bed-bug to an
iron foundry, and dropping it into a
ladle where the melted iron was, had it
ran into a skillet. Well, my old woman
used that skillet pretty constant for thc
last six years, and here tho other day she
broke it ell to smash; and what do you
think, gentlemen'-that ero insect just
walked ont of his hole, where he'd been
layin' like a frog in a rock, and made
tracks for his old roost np stairs. Put,"
added he, by way of parenthesis, "by
George, gentlemen, he looked mighty
The New York E]$r?ss congratulates
the South upon these evidences of recu?
peration, enterprise and coming power,
"When the Sonth has completed all
its needed railroads to the sea-ports, and
has developed even a moiet}' of its mine?
ral wealth, it will prove altogether the
wealthiest part of the agricultural Union.
In cotton lands it is without a rival in
tho world, and in sugar and rice, in the
production of cattle and corn, it should
occupy the foremost pince on the conti?
nent. We repeat, then, that for tho
South there aro good times ahead, and
we aro glad to see so many timely stops
taken to exhibit her wealth and encou?
rage its increase. What has been done
is in despito of Fedoral interference, po?
litical and military; and without that in?
terference, her wealth would be vastly
greater, and her prosperity every woy
?XOXI8H COTTON TRADE.-Tho New
York Shipping and Commercial List adds:
"The truth is, the French and German
spinners aro depriving England of a con?
siderable portion of tho trade which she
formerly enjoyed in Continental Europe,
while our own spinners are every year
lessening tho American dependence upon
English cotton goods. American manu?
facturers have learned to mako cotton
goods equal in quality to those mado in
England, and this advantage our spin?
ners nre destined to maintain and in?
crease. English, spinners evidently re?
cognize this fact, and hence the doubts
and fenrs to which the English journals
aro beginning to give expression. The
cotton lords attribute the present diffi?
culties to tbs scarcity and high price of
cotton, but the Times' view is no doubt
thc moro correct one."
A fire ocourred in San Francisco, yes?
terday, which destroyed several factories,
valued at $200,000.
THE MrD-MOHT SUN.-The following
ist a description of the scene witnessed by
Mr. Campbell and bis party in the North
of Norway, as they stood ou a cliff 1,000
foot above tho sea. Tho passage is un?
surpassed in graphio beauty:
The ocean stretched far away in silent
vastness, at our feet; tho sound of its
waves scarcely roached our airy look-out;
away in tho North tho hugo old sun
swung low along the horizon like tho slow
beat of the pendulum in the tall clock of
our grand-fatbor's parlor corner. Wo nil
stood silent looking nt our watches.
When both hands came together at 12
o'clock, mid-night, tho full round orb
hung triumphantly above the wave-a
bridge of gold mouing due North span?
ned the water between ns and him.
There ho shone in silent majesty which
knew no setting. Wo involuntarily took
off our hats; no words was said. Com?
bine, if you can, the most brilliant sun?
set and sun-rising you ever saw, and its
beauties will be palo before tho gorgeous
coloring which now lit up ocean, heaven
and mountain. In half nn hour the sun
had swung up perceptibly on its beat,
the colors changed to those of morning,
a frosh breeze rippled over the flood, ono
songster after another piped up in the
grove behind us-wo had slid into an?

,, CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE FAVOR
OF 11 OST KT TICK'S STOMACH BITTERS.
W. H. Reese, a leading druggist in Monti'
collo,, 111., in a letter of June G, 18C3, writes to
this ?ffect: "Having sold Ho?tettcr's Bitters
for tho past four years, I cannot but ^peak of
tho article as being tho best tonic and appe?
tizer extant. During tho aguo season of 1865-0,
I could not keep a sufficient stook on baud to
supply my customers. In fact, your Bitters
was as utopie as quinine. I learn that physi?
cians proscribe it all over tho Western coun?
try, indeed, a great many families think they
are not safe without your invaluable touio."
J. K. Witherspoon, Esq., a magistrate of
Korshaw Oountv, 8. O., states, under dato
April 13.1868, that ho has used tho Bitters
constantly in his own family for tho previous
two years. Ho first tried the preparation whon
suffering from exhaustion produced by a se?
vere attack of fever. Before the first bottle
was finished ho experienced a remarkable
change for tho better. He had tried brandy
at the ontsot, but found that did him more
harm than good. In one month from the time
he commonced using the Bitters his health,
strength and appetito wcro restored. He had
recommended the article to others in like cir?
cumstances, and never known it to fail, and
had found it a perfect specific for chills and
Mr. Ham ucl Young, of Clarion, Pa., under
dato April 6, 18GS, cortifica that ho WBB com?
pletely cured of "ono of the most distressing
attacks of dyspepsia that over afflicted any
mortal," by three bottle? of tho Bitters, after
"various other remedies 'had proved power?
less." ltestorod to perfect health, ho thanks
"that excellent preparation for tho result."
Dr. G. M. Spencer, of Brush Creek, Perry

several years in my practice, and find'them
superior*to most of the Bitters nowprescribed
by the profession generally." _ Oct 1 tf?
