The Mysterious Murder of Wednesday
Night—A Professor in a Female Seminary
Stabbed to the Heart—Vain Efforts to Discover
the Assassin—Great Excitement
Among the Friends of the Deceased.
In our last issrte Wb slated that A Bin
aanted Crawley had been found dead in the
street near the corner of Harriet and Main,
totrether with imposition that be had been
killed by A roiiple of females in Whose com
pany he had been seed a short time previous.
Ths hour at Which tha homicide occurred
prevented ns from either learning or giving
the name and character of the parties; but
the facts, as developed before the Coroner's
Jury yesterday morning, show the fallacy of
what at that time we believed to be true.
The particulars, so far as they have as yet
been ascertained, throw no light upon the
perpetrators of the act, and the testimony
that has been elicited leaves tha matter thus
far still enshrouded in mystery. ...
It appears that .Henry T. Crawley, Pro
fessor of Mathematics lit tha Mt. Auburn
Female Seminary, came to the city on
Wednesday evening, to attend the concert at
the Opera-house), in company with Miss
Carrie Mensies, daughter of Dr. Menzies, of
this city, and Miss Bailie Vallette, the former
a teacher and the latter a pupil at the in
stitute. At the close of the performance they vis
ited the Commtrn&l office, and siient the time
until about twelve o'clock in looking at the
machinery and examining the nwdtu operandi
of getting up a morning newspaper, after
which they started for MC Auburn.
Immediately after crossing the bridge over
the Miami Canal, on Main-street, they passed
four men, who were conversing togetjier, and
who, aa they walked by, made some disgust
ing, vulgar noise, which Mr. C. supposed was
intended for an insult. He, therefore,
stopped, while the ladies went on, and was
seen by them to walk back toward the men.
Finally, they heard a scuffle, and npon
turning again, saw their companion running
toward them. After crossing Hunt-street be
fell, when they approached him, at first sup
posing that he had been attacked by disease
of the heart, to which, we learn, hehas for a
long time been predisposed.
They saw the men run across the street,
and under the impression that Mr. C. was
dying, called for assistance, which being pro
cured, and learning the fact that their com
panion had been killed, they proceeded to
the Institute, and procuring a carriage re
turned, and found the deceased at the Bremen-street
Station-house, whither he had
been taken immediately alter the tragedy.
Yesterday morning Dr. Menzies made a
pott obitum examination of the body, and
found small Incised wound in the right
breast, about two inches above and behind
the nipple, passing between the fourth and
fifth ribs Into the cavity of the chest, through
the upper lobe of the right lung, and severing
the main arch of the aorta. The wound was
nearly six inches deep, and necessarily fatal,
producing a hemorrhage that could not by
any possibility be stopped.
Officer Dalton found a large dirk-knife
about six inches long in the blade, in a yard
opening into an alley running west from
Main-street, nearly opposite the spot on
which the man died. It is doubtless the
same with which the homicide was com
mitted, and the place in which it was found
is the only clue to the direction the parties
took after the deed was consummated.
No evidence was elicited which would
seem to indicate who the guilty parties were.
Oue of the witnesses stated that he saw four
men inHonin's coffee-houso, about twenty
minutes before he heard the alarm of murder,
and also that he would be able to identify
one of the men; but they have not since been
seen, although it is thought they saw the
homicide committed.
The deceased was a native ot Nova Scotia,
about thirty-two years of age, and unmarried.
He has been connected with the Mt Auburn
and he was much esteemed and beloved by
all who were acquainted with him. He was
extensively known throughout the city, and
his homicide has created the most intense ex
citement among his numerous friends and
acquaintances. . ...,-.
The affair became more and more compli
cated as the examination of witnesses betoro
the Coroner's Jury progressed, and about
four o'clock the inquest was adjourned until
Saturday morning. A number of our more
Prominent citizens have headed a subscrip
ion for a reward to be offered for the arrest
of the homicide, and we earnestly hope our
police may succeed in ferreting him out and
bringing him to justice.

Criminal Side. Before Judge Mallon.
The State vt. Geo. Garrett. The prisoner
stood indicted for manslaughter, the ho
micide of Wm. Long, on the 6th of April
1858.
It was in the testimony that Long stood on
a pile of iron, a chain and anchov, and was
looking in through the window, at the Third
Ward Polls; when he turned round, Garrett,
who stood behind, struck him in the mouth
with a stone, brickbat, or piece of iron, (as
some of the witnesses allege) and knocked
out several of his teeth; the two then clinched
and fell. A crowd gathered in to separate
them, and when Long rose up he said his leg
was broken. It was supposed his foot caught
in the iron; and when examined by a physi
cian it appeared that his ankle had been vio
lently wrenched, and the ligaments ruptured.
The lnflamation ran on rapidly to mortifica
tion, and in a few days he died from this in
jury. It was stated that Garrett was intox
icated at the time of the quarrel. Earlier in

Tub Iribm Emigration to' America. A
Cork (Ireland) paper of May IT says;
Two river steamers left this city yesterday
for Queenstown, crowded with persons who
intend leaving for America by the screw
steamships (Itrngow and Nova Seotian, the
former or which sails from this port to-day
for New York and the latter for Quebec.
They were mostly from the Queen's County
and Kerry, aud the great majority were young
people. On being anked their reason for leav
ing the country, tbey replied that there were
do opportunities for young persons of the
fanning class to get on. here, and they con
sidered it their best course to go away to a
place where land was cheap and easily got.
In most cases, their passages had been paid
by relatives already In America. The tickets
they had, freed them entirely by railway
from their homes to this place, and from this
to America.
A Loo Used as a Bank. Recently the ad

au uncouth block of wood, supposed to be

chased for fifteen vents, by one David M.llat-macher.-
On the morning succeeding the
sale, the purchaser in a spirit of Inquiry
"characteristic of tho age we live in" split
tha block open, when he discovered a queer
secret door, opened by the pressure of a long
rod, and containing bonds, notes and other
matters, besides about $2,000 in silver coin.
To test the right of ownership in the treasure,
an amicable suit for its recovery was insti

County, resulting in a verdict for the execu
tors for $1,000,

The Prize Ring—Sayers and Hechan to

Boy's Challenge to Morrissey.
This Week's fljnrti of thi T'mtt observe!: :
Among the first fruits of tha settlemantof
the dispute about the belt Is the laying ont
of two campaigns by the champions, from
which they will, ho doubt, reap a golden
harvest. , We learn tha, after tout df eight

which runs thus: i
The whole thing1 Is settled at last, an far as
Sayers and me are concerned. It is not ex
actly what I bargained for, but it will serve
to prove that I have not done the place I
came from any discredit, and that I have got
a big crowd of people on this side of the
water, who, perhaps, don't like me any too
well at that, to give the lie to those at home
who still try to defame mo with a want of
courage. I hear that Morrissey it still fore

tempt me to leave this country speedily, and
postpone any intentiona I may have about
the old belt of England, it will be for the
satisfaction of meeting him in a rope ring
again. I bear the man no malice, but I want
to punish him for the way in which he talks
about me, and consequently I want him all

All the satisfaction I have bad from him
thus far is the two hundred dollars I won

An Incident of the French Revolution—A
Man Owes His Life to His Boots.
Now that the name of Varnhagen von Ense
is brought so prominently forward, through
the Humboldt correspondence, it may not be
amiss to quote from one of his works a storv
about a pair of boots, which, by their oppor
tune disappearance, did their owner better
service than did ever boots before by the
promptest attendance. It occurs in the
author's account of Crab Schlabemdorf, a
mitci ui uu uius uuser, wuu uvea ia a
Paris garret, was miserly in trifles, and lav
ishly generous in great things; who was
unwarily a uesu-tv ineuu 01 iioerty, ana sec
ondarily a persevering, disinterested patriot.
A friend ot the Girondists, he speedily found
his way to prison under the sway of Robe
spierre, i.i . - .
One morning the death cart came for its
usual number of daily victims, and Sohla
bemdorf s name was called out. lie im
mediately, with the greatest coolness and
good humor, prepared for departure. Pres
ence of mind in some shape, a grand stoicism
or mere indifference, was common in those
terrible times. And Schlabemdorf was not
the man to make an ungraceful departure
when the unavoidable Must of fate stood,
sternly before him. He was soon dressed,
only his boots were missing.. He sought,
and sought, and sought, and the jailor sought
with him, in this corner and in that: but
they were, not to be found. "Well," said
Schlabemdorf sharply, "this is too bad; to
be guillotined without my boots will never
do. Hark ye, my good fjiend," continued
he, with simple good humor, to thi jailor,
"take me to-morrow;- ono day makes no
difference; it Is the man they want, not
Tuesday or Wednesday." The jailor agreed.
The wagonfull enough without that one
head, went off to Ha destination Schlabem
dorf remained in the prison. Next morning,
at the usnal hour, th vehicle, returned; and
the victim who had (to strangely escaped on
the previous day, was ready, boots and nil,
waiting the word of command. But, behold!
his name was not heard that day: nor the
third day, nor the fourth and not all. There
was no mystery in the matter. It was na
turally supposed that he had fallen with the
other victims named for the original day. In
the multitude of sufferers no one could curi
ously Inquire for an individual. For the days
that followed there ,was enough of victims
without him, and so he remained in prison
till the fall of Robespierre, when, with so
many others, he recovered his .liberty. He
owed this miraculous escape not the least
strange in the strange history of the Revolu
tion partly to the kindness of the jailor
partly and mainly to his good temper. He
wag a universal favorite in the jail.
'
England's Course Toward China.
We find In 'Blackwood for May an elub
erate article oa .the course to be punned to
ward China. The writer says:, ,
"We have then the vast sum to be realized
by the seizure of all the grain vessels and im
penal granaries of Northern China. Even if
only one-half of the yearly supply falls into
our hands, the value of those 200.000 tuns of
f;rain at the prices ruling recently in Peche
ee would be equal to) twenty-four million
dollars, or four and three quarter million!
sterling. Besides this, there is the govern
ment salt revenue. -. And, lastly, we can. not
believe that China it - less rich than in 1842, '
whet) we remember, that since, then,-seventeen
1 years ago, her merchants and her tea
and silk farmers have tripled their sales and
profits, absorbed our silver as fast as we can
pour it into the country; and apart front an
Increased trade along their eoasts, we find the '
Chinese trader actually, for the first time in
history, trading and competing a&ainst nt in
European-built vessels running to the ports
of the Eastern Archipelago, as well as be
tween port and port in their huge Empire.
This does not look like national bankruptcy
national poverty.' "The Chinese are the most
under-taxed race wa know in the East,' but
they are badly governed, and - worse pro
tected by their Government. The .Govern
ment can exact when it pleases any amount
of coin and supplies to erect formidable works,
cast brass eonnon to oppose us, and then
plead poverty when we demand indemnity,
' e a , "
' Finally! the writer urges the following as
proper features of a new Treaty: Kr
"A guarantee agafnift a recurrence or nos-
tilitiet and groaa trnarhery, though' difficult
to obtain, is essential, i WA would- suggest
that. In tne first place, the reconstruction of
the Takq forte be objected to; that a position
be selected as near the Peiho River as poa
aible for the establishment of an Buropean
factory or settlement, the Consuls exercising
within the limits Of their respective factories
magisterial functions, (the Men-ton Islands
would probably afford such a position;) ao
fortifications to bt erected by Europeans,
except ia salf-defenoe against the Chinese)
andithat it shall be considered a neutral snot
in European wars. Its proximity to Pskia
would check that Court, if it 'contemplated
any further duplicity, it would bt a place of
refuge for our merchants or diplomatists re
sident in Pechelee, and the cession of such
an island br spot to the allies would have the
most marked effect upon the Chinese and
Mancboua of Northern China would form a
tangible proof of our tuooess, and of the pun
ishment awaiting breaches of lity-ogs)ge-ments.

Tnesday's New York Money market Is thus ratsr
red to In Wednesday's IVsms :
On Inquiry through the Money Market to-day, wa
Dud that a revision of our last quotation is called for
by the actual transactions In paper. Tha rata oa
prime SVrfiO day bills Is 4'i per cent., aud the rata
On loans at call varies from S uown to 4 per cent., ao-
cording to the classification of tha securities aud
the anxiety of private lenders to give temporary ent-
ployment to their balances. The lowest ttgura has
been accepted to-day on United Htatea and State) 1
Stocks, and 4HA per cent, charged on Biiscellane-
oue collateral to borrowers of good standing on tha E
Htock Kxrhange- The terms of discouut In paper
running ninety days to six months are also lower oar
fir line Indorsed lists, say .VaV, per cent., and on ee.
set slnale names aSatie Her cent. Haveral nt Hia
heaviest Banks In the street hold out ajtainst tbaas '
cheap rates for Money, preferring to have their die
count Unas run down, and their spscie llaes run up. ,r
Others, again, fill up on the best terms they nan
aieae wuu ids oiu-uruaers.
The Exchanicea for the Persia were better dlatrtb.
uted among the Bankers at ICttM than last weab, i
several parties coming In as drawers, who then
held oiltfur lovV. others, while aaking 109K at their "
counters, settled maturing erudite with dealers at
109H per cent. On Parle there la no change; f. Ml,a) .
f.S.13H. There was qulto a competition for the Mexi
can Silver, recently received from the South, for ax
port by this steamer, and sales are reported front
iulwH per ceut.
NawYoanOaTtxiMauasT. Wednesday's rwbuaa "
observes in regsrd to the Cattle market duxlug tho
week ending Tuesday evening.
Ll rovers are not jolly this week. They would not .
act after the fashion or the rest of mankind if they '
were, for there ia a certain decline In the Beef Cat- -tie
market. Some of the Brokers ia fact moat of "
them say It la equal to half a oent net s pound. Wa -think
it la just about that, aad more ielt by the "
owners of the best grades than by the worst. Many
of the Drovers declare that Cattle do not tell aa well
to-day as they did laat Tuesday by a cent a pound. "
but all lived upon hopes that the second day would t
produoe a ohaiiKe in their favor. From the number L
of Cattle ou eale, that change Is a doubtful one.
There wera yarded this morning, or reported for L'
sale, between 3,600 and 3,700 head of Bullocks, tha , r
most ol them fat, heavy onee eome of them very- r
heavy, and very few light Steers. Wa know that ,
there will be some widition to the number to-rnor- -1
row, and as "strawberry time" haa fairly com.
men:ed, we can not believe that the demand will ba "
any better than It haa been heretofore, and conse
quently prlcue will remain low. Very few. If any, uT .
the very best Bullocks In market, to-day. have sold u
over 9,'fic. net per pound. The range Is from 7 to, ,
9Sc. The mass of stock will eell at SX ana 9c. por '
pouua, and there will boa good stock left over for t
sale to-morrow. '
