admitted that all he said Wats true.
Tne Senator who uttered the defence

position. ' Sprague then stated that be

To effect this great tt.ject I shall de

"It is the work of Mr. Morton, one
of the (Senators from Indiana, and is
another illustration of the reckless and

WILL MURDER OUT?
THE BUCKSON CASE.
. In the year 1851 Capt. John Buck
son lived,, with his wife Nancy, in a
handsome cottage la tiie viilnge of
leaaona, nar ' rovidence, U. I., in
the enjoyment ol a competence acqui
red by many years of frugal industry,
lie was, however, often absent from
home, as he still pursued his vocation,
and was ma-iter of theslooi 'Oregon.
plying between Providence and Nor
folk, Va. . .
. Ho had then reached hi fiftieth
year, and his hard efaring life had
not made him look. younger than he
was. He was tall, intuut and angu
lar, weather stained and storm beat
en. His short, stiff hnir was grizzled,
and Ida long, narrow face furrowed
by deep lines, but his physical pow
ers appeared to.be still untouched,
and he seemed assured ot a long con
tinuance of active life.
His temperament was favorable to
a lusty longevity. He was patient.
and apparently bo passionless that he
stared at the cares and troubles of
life as at Btrangors with whom lie
could not possibl y have deal iocs. He
avoided quarrel and all unseemliness
wan scrupulous care, and was known
on his vessel and in his -villaee as a
sedate, Ood fearing man, kind heart
ed ana even tempered.
uut lie Had positive points in his
character, and the -requisite friction
would produce the natural clow. As
it all equable men, hi anger burned
witn dui aim ngnt but lu tense heat,
and hence with . him. a knittlner of
the brows or. twitching or the hands,
meant more than the wildest signs of
passion in other men, and his word of
wrath was weightier than the braw
ler's blow. Hut he so loved peace,
and o sedulously courted It, thai his
most iutiraate.asseciatea remembered
as metnarahi epochs the rare occa
sions when his temper had given way.
The only trouble of his life brooded
o'er his own hearthstone. Mrs. Nan
cy Bucksoo waa many year his ju
nior in age, and in important respects
his opposite in character. To her
youth aheadded comllneiis of person.
Though a thorough good- woman at
heart, she yet embittered her life and
his by constant efforts to do more
than her duty. Nervous and Irrita
ble, she became fretfully voluble in
her assertions of her own merits and
his shortcomings. So, in ihe summer
ot 18.11, the neighbor itegan to pity
poor Capt. Johu as a henpecked hus
band, and the inroads of the wife
upon the domestic quietude were no
ticed as of constantly iuireising: lre
quencyand bitterness. Capt. John,
however, bore the atHiclion with hi.t
But the end was near; (:ie even
ing, in the last week In July, a neigh
bor, J.-imes Puuls, i 1 passing the
house, heard Nancy's tongue going at
an unusual rate, and gl.-tnciug through
the windows, saw iiucksun standing
before her. He seemed ronsed at last
and although Pauls could not hear
his words, he saw the knitted brows
and twitching hands, in one of which
a stout whipcord was convulsively
grasped. The eceiie ; was iodeUibiy
stamped by after events : upon tbe
mera-iryof " the accidental witness,
and he coatd always see. even to the
most minute details, the enraged wo
man, confronted Dy mat quiet, con

passion and fidgetting with a whip

gave no especial weight to the circum-
etance, and stopping at the village inn
on his way home, only casually re
marked to the inevitable kruugers.

keep on a naggin of Capt.1 John ua

The next morning the cottage was

had unearthed. .
f , Every village, probably, has its
setisation at some time, and that of
Seakouk came with the story of the
children. As the tiding spread from
house to house, the people gathered
at the ina and eagerly discussed whnt
should le done and who should do it.
At last all the mide inhabitants, head
ed by the Squire, bearing a lantern,
and piloted by the children, starter!
out to investigate the matter. Cut
pilots were not needed, as the dog
still maintained his watch, and with
mournful bowlings echoing through
the dim woods, the party could not
iro astray. Reaching the spot, they
g-tthered round it, and tbe Squire ad
vanced, and kneeling down, wiped
the dirt from the face of tho dead wo
man with the skirt of his coat.
"It'.-s Nancy Buckson !" .
He fell back a few paces with the
exclamation, aud his companions tur
ned to imitate the conduct of the chil

however, at his summons, and fell
vigorously to work t exhume the

was found to be chloride of lime,

decomposition. - ..-
Every one recognized poor Nancy
Buckson, mid saw the rigid and livid
mark on the neck,' pointed; out by
the Squire. It was plain that she had
been murdered by strangulation, and
tossed, dressed as she was at the mo
ment of her violent death, into the
rude fcr.ive where the -bi had (mind

The neighbor. Pauls, now rocuwed
the quarrel of the preceedin-t day,
and told how Captain John had fitood
before the angry woman, playing with
the whipcord. Tlieeottiiire wassearch-
ed, and a cord was found lying on the
floor ot" the room, which, when tied
upou the woman's neck fitted exact

tbe criminal than the crime. -
Capt. John Buckson -was not Totind
in the villafre nor-in Providence, but
it was nseef taineti that he had sailed
with his sloop, nnd the presumption
was raised that he intended t touch
at New York, and there leaving the
vessel, seek to elude the olficers of the
law in the labyrinths 01 thegreat city,
A messenger was therefore dispatched
in great hHsf to reach the city before
hi in, with a requisition for his arrest
This-authority whs placed in the
hands of Polioi Captain Leonard the
otneer referred to in my preamble
who searched diligently among the
shipping until he found the sloop
"Oregon" moored at an East River
pier. - Going on board, Capt. Leonard
greeted Buckson, who was seated on
"Good day, sir." .1
The sailor scarcely looked up as he
mechanically relumed the salutation.
"I'm sorry to trouble you, but I've
a warrant for your arrest."
"Arrest! .'or what?'.'
The exclamation and succeeding
question were those of a phlegmatic
man sngntiy astonisned.
"For the murder of your wife."
"Murder of my wife ! Sauire. that
can not be. Nancy isn't deao."
: "Yes she is-strangled with a cord."
Buckson rose to his feet, and look
ing the officer eteadilv in tho face.
said slowly and solemnly:
"inquire, n iNancy'a dead I don't
kuow it. Iliad a quarrel with her
the night I left, and crave her a piece

tnai 1 didn't put a nand upon her."
a ne omcer looked with some inter
est upon a man who could thus deny
a crime with which ne was so clearly
't'lafu oy circumstantial evidence,
but without further narlev took him
from the sloop and placed him in a
cell of the station house. He made
no resistance, and did not trouble
himself to again volunteer any pro
testation of his innocence. While in
the station house, and durinir the
journey to Providence, whenever the
question was directly put to him, he
always denied ms guilt in the same
emphatic terms, but he was never the
hrst to broaeh the suhiect. and it was
especially noticed that he never made
any Inquiry lor the details of the
When the officer and his cliarsre ar

amazed to find himself the obiect of

by a hooting mob that pelted him
with opprobrious epithets, and with

Violence to bis person. He bore him

ly to his discredit, and the citizens
could not remember any hardened
wretch who had . ever so flaunted his
crime in the faca- of an outraged peo
la due time the grand' iury was
convened and bis case considered.
There was no more doubt of his guilt
in that official body than in the com
munity at large, aud he was formally
indicted for the. murder of Nancy
Buckson. ..j ...-. ..
When the news was taken to hbn
in his celL he-only said: "God's
will be done!"
His perfect resignation had, by this
time, won slightly on the jailer's
heart, and be inquired if he did not
wish to engage counsel to defend him
at tbe approaching trial. Buckson's
face brightened with this first faint
sign cf sympathy, but he answered:
i inauK you. mend, but l don't
need a lawyer. God knows I am in
nocent, and He will, prove- it in Ills
own good tune."
The day appointed for tho trial of
the prisoner waa close at hand, when
the quiet village waa startled by a
new terror. One pleasant (September
morning a ghost descended from the
eastern coach, and walked leisurely,
with every semblance of life, ud the
street, toward the long deserted cot
tage. It was a a horrible ghost, for it
nodded familiar greetings to several
bersons it met upon the way. and
once tried to pat a shrinking child.
it almost seemed endowed with hu
man passions, for " many were ready
to make oath that they saw its cheek
flush .with .anger when it found the
entire town avoiding it in ontywiceal
ed twrror.- But it was u persistent
ghost, for it walked steadily on until
it reached the gate of the cottage gar
den, which it found nailed up, and it
became a talkative ghost when it dis
covered, the pgs running. ilot in the
garden. ; In the; very voice: of the
dead Nancy Buckson . it said, in a
peevish voice 1 . '.-- ; ... ' ,
"That Johu Buckson'U be tbe death

Her absence from tbe cottage was not
known until after, the finding of the
body, and its identification was so ab
solute' that of course no .search was
made for a woman known to be dead.
On the other hand, she had heard
nothing, in a retired spot of a distant
State, of her supposed death and the
subsequent events, and her return,
timely ns it was, had been purely ac
cidental. She was horrified when
confronted with . the results of her
thoughtless freak, and, although she
made no noisy demonstrations of re
gret, and was not profuse in promises
of amendment in the future, it is
pleasant to know that this terrible
experience was not withont fruit,
Buckson was, of course, immediately
released, the legal procedings against
him at once dismissed, and thereafter
he found in his home a haven of rest
that was a recompense for . the suffer
ing by which it had been purchased.
But a mystery has always brooded
over the cottage, and the murder al
ways remained an insoluble enigma.
Eighteen years have elapsed without
any second identification of the body
unearthed by the little dog, and, as a
consequence, without any detection Of
the murderer. The clothes in which
the body was dressed, and the ear
rings and articles of jewelry upon it,
were undoubtedly the property i of
Mrs. Buckson, for, upon her return
she found those articles missing from
the house. A close scrutiny of. the
cottage showed that the woman bad
not only been there; but probably
been murdered there during the night
after Buckson and his wife, had left.
The cord found In the room had fit
ted the neck, and the chloride i of
lime had evidently been disturbed.
Many articles of value, too, were gone
and the house generally disarranged.
Upon these circumstances a theory 1
was founded that the woman was one 1

nan had arrayed herself io tho prop

she had been murdered by the other
meiiioers ot tne party, subsequently
this theory was in part thoroughly es
tablished, when a complete female
outfit, ot coarse material, was acclden
tally fished out of n old aud unused
well in the cottage garden.
Detectives are apt to attach the
names of noted criminals to extraor
dinary crimes, and many years fffer
th events ictrrated, a rumor was
prevalent among the police of Provi
dence that the murdered woman had
been the wife of an English burglar
named Collins, then living in Provi
dwee; and celebrated all over the
Union for his siucess and recklessness.
The rumor had no better foundation
than that Collins and his wifedisap
petred at about the time of the mur
der, and it only lived because theories
always thrive when facts are impos
sible to obtain.
The case yet remains among unfin
ished police business. -No human .ef
fort has eve- learned more than was
discovered by the brute instincts of
the dog when he pawed the secret of
the murder from the shallow grave

commanded by Captain Nordeuskied
and Captain Fr. W. von Otfer, of the
Swedish navy, and the means for it
in the first place were obtained hv
private subscription at" Gottenburg,
tbe government afterward taking it
up and fitting out for the purpose tbe
steamship Sofia, strongly built of
Swedish iron, and originally intended
ior tne navigation of the Baltic in
winter. The Swedish - Academy of
Sciences appointed a numerous party
of scientfie men to accompany the ex
yeuiiion, and 11 starred irom Gotten

After a thorugh exploration of Beereu
Island, on the way, lee-fjord, in Spits
bergen, was reached ou the Cist of
July. Already at South Cape ice was
met with, aad it increased as they ap
proached the Thousand Isles. The
intention was to pass to the eastward
of Spitzbergen, but the ice rendered
tnis impracticable, 'ihe geology of
Ice-fjord was carefully explored dur

discovery made, of post tertiary strata

now found living much further south
in Norway. It is estimated that" 000
or 3,000 head of walrus were annually
slaughtered in Spitzbergen by Nor
wegian wairus nunters, showingthat
there must be a large tract of meadow
land free from ice to sustain bo large a
nnmber of these animals, unless they
travel over from Nova Zembla.
On the 17th of August the Sofia
reached lying's Bay, and on-' the 19th
proceeded on her course further north
ward. Having replenished her coal
and landed five of the scientific mem
bers at Knoobe Bay. to prosecute their
researches on land, the vessel proceed
ed out to sea, for the purpose of taking
deep sea soundings with the Bulldog
apparatus and of ascertaining the
practicability of pushing between the
ice toward the North : Pole. First,
they, endeavored: to. penetrate to
Greenland, along the eightieth paral
lel of latitude, but. impenetrable mas
ses of ice, tendingthortheast and south
west rendered this impossible. Turn
iug then to north and northeast they
reached 81 degrees 16 minutes north
latitude. Here the ocean was some
times covered with a thin coating of
Ice, and tbe old ice northward was
quite impassable, and the temperature
sinking to 21 degrees Fahrenheit.. On
the 29th of August the Sofia entered
Liebde Bay, In northern Spitzbergen.
The deep sea soundings revealed the
interesting fact that Spitzbergen. was
connected with Scandinavia by a sub
marine bank, having a maximum
depth of 300 fathoms. North and west
of Spitabergen the aea deepens to 2,000
farthoms aud more. At the- greatest
depths animal life was found. At
2,600 fathoms foraminifera was brought
up. Leibde Bay was now,, for the
first time, explored, both in its. topo
graphy and geology; its climate was
mild and calm; while out at aea 'high
winds and snow storms prevailed.
After a vain attempt to reach Giles

Where is the Government as Chartered

On the 17th of September, 17B7, a

subsequently approved by the States
and put in operation on the: 4th of
March. 1780, with Washington at its
head. . The charter was simple, plain
and clear iu its provisions, limited lu
Its objecu aud powers, and .designed
exclusively for the protection, of the
State governments in. their reserved
rights and sovereignty, with none to
modify or control, such as the people
in tiieir might should ordain and es

few cases where they ex press ly;Tc!in
