We vUlted Hillis In his cell last "night.
He said that he never saw the woman be-

and was crazy when he committed the act;
that be bad no spite against the girl and
doea not kuow why he done It. We are of
opinion that there is more in the matter
than appears on the surface. A man would
not arm himself with "a razor -and, 'shoe1
knite and cut the throat of a person against
whom be bad no spite.

the man before, and says that be called her
to him and placed his baud on her mouth

words' with her, cat ber.iZAa near aatwa

He says : "Ten dollars and full of ben

the money, but tbe benzine ! My reputa
fion! That Spiv, should God knows

Inquiry we found It was Miss Laura Mitch

idays with her uncle, Mr. Anderson, of this
city. Her costume is of light plaid, trim

could be. We understand this is her sec

Iannis Drake S. IV-lSCO.XJ.tsJVe
have heard this . question asked many
times, and for all we knew for a year past
he might be dead. Recently, in New
York, we called at bis Laboratory in Lib
erty St., and there found this gentleman
barricaded behind a tremendous pile
of boxes, distributing funds to a
Sunday School Committee. Our busi
ness was to secure an advertisement.
He sala : "My dear air, what is the use of
advertising the Plantation. Bitters -J!hej
sell better now than when I advertised at
such enormous expense, and now I have
not made a contract for' a year.
I have all this amount to give to
the poor, f To satisfy the f Press, ho w
aver,; 't who i have always been, -my
friends, I think I will give you a little
something to do again, for I bave improved
the Bitters greatly, and It may be well to
hav you let the people know it." . And so
be ran on In a happy, cordial, apprecia
tive manner, showing us the wonders of
bis place and the cords ot certifi
cates. Everything is. on a magnifi
cent scale, and Is done with neatness
and promptness. While there we saw
at least forty orders come in for these cele
brated Bitters. Cases were being shipped
to tbe four corners of tbe world. Drake is
not dead, nor his Bitters either. Exchange

Life Insurance Department of tbe State of
New York. (From Commissioner's report,
January 1st, 1868, page 63.)
Tbe New England Mutual Life Insur
ance Company of Bos ton,Massachusetts,was
the pioneer ot Life Insurance In New Eng
land, under the able but extremely conserv
ative guidance of that accomplished jurist,
Judge Wlllard Phillips, "President of the
Company," the Life Policy was popular
ized in offices, counting rooms, banks,
workshops and firesides east of the Hud
son, and no Bank Bill or State Bond was
ever more sacredly regarded than the pol
icies under written-by Judge PhlUips
The idea of fraud, deception or overreach
ing was never associated with a parchment
containing his sign-manual. Geo. F.

N. Y. Dry Goods Market—Dec. 26.
-day a feeling of uncertainty and dis
trnst has been created by tbe announce
ment of the failure of Lathrop, Lndiagtoa
& Co ot Broadway, extensive jobbers.
This announcement, taken in connection
with the suspension ot Turnbull, Shade &
Co, on Monday last, for a larga amount,
has done much to create distrust in tha
dry goods market. Both thesa lailnrea
will do much to arrest tbe upwara move
ment in prices of cotton goods. All dark
good styles of fancy prints in steady re
quest at one shilling, but goods which
have been put up )c a yard recently, go
slowly, and the current ia against a rise,
regardless ot cost, of gray cloths, which
appear scarce and firm at 9c for 64-inch
square. On Monday next tha prloe of Lan
caster 32-inch prints will be reduced from
20c to 17)c for pinks, and purples from 20o
to 19c, but tills will not affect the price ot
narrow goods. At present the market for
unbleached and bleached mnsltna is -firm
but rather quiet. The best yard wida un
bleached sheetings command 15)j($16c, al
though good sheeting from Soutuern mills
can be obtained at 1414. Good tick
