Another Legal Tragedy—The Execution of
Brust in St. Louis—Full Particulars of
the Closing Scene.
Saturday's St. Louis Democrat has the
following: .'!.,,' .
The self-confessed murderer, Jacob Simon
Brust, aldat Samnel Brnst, aged only twenty
four years', was hanged in the jail-yard yes
terday afternoon. Though indicted, con
victed, sentenced and exeouted as Samuel l
Brust, it transpires that his real name was
the one we have first given above.
In accordance with the requirement of the
law, a watch was kept upon the condemned
man during the night preceding his execu
tion. Deputy-Marshals Eves and Peying
hsus performed the duty, yet found that
their official services were ' not specially
needed. The prisoner was left for most of
the time undisturbed, Deputy Eves calling
upon him each half hour to see that all was
right. Brust passed the time in praying,
singing hymns, conversing, smoking, and
occasionally taking some refreshments, until
two A. M., when he lay down and slept tran
quilly till near sunrise.
On waking, he expressed himself asTfeeling
much refreshed, saying be had never slept
more delioiously. lie resumed his devotions
with apparent satisfaction and cheerfulness,
and at 9 o'clock gave a cordial greeting to
his reverend friends, Pastors Walil and Will,
who then called upon him. To them he re
peated that he had rested sweetly, and found
himself tranquil and assured in the near view
of his fate, lie added that he felt happier
than be did on even his wedding night. The
source of his serenity he described as a clear
consciousness of the divine forgiveness and
fnvor through the merits of Christ. After
joining with him in prayer, praise and sing
ing, and further exhorting him, the reverend
gentlemen administered to him the Sacra
ment of the Lord's Snpper, and then took
leave of him for an hour, during which he
ate relishingly his last meal.
THE WAY TO THE SCAFFOLD.
At five minutes before two o'clock the
solemn cortege emerged from tlie prison
door, led by Marshal Wegman and Brust.
The Marshal and his prisoner advanced
more rapidly than the others, and Brnst
walked firmly and rather briskly up the
steps, being the first upon the scaffold. He
was neatly attired in black, with black gait
ers and white stockings, a broad brimmed
black felt hnt, dark neck-cloth and white
net k-collar. lie was rather tall, nnd a stoutly
built,- muscular ' man, looking young and
fresh, with broad face, heavy features, dark
complexion, black hair and dark blue eyes, a
wen aevetopea ioreneaa, ana a large ttucK
head. He was evidently a man of unusual
energy and physical resources, and a strong
and passionate will. His demeanor was
firm, grave, gentle and passive. -, , . ; .; '
THE MURDERER'S ADDRESS.
As the members of the funeral party ar
ranged themselves, with uncovered heads,
on the scaffold, Brnst stepped briskly for
ward, placed his hands upon the railing, and
began an animated address in broken and
sometimes unintelligible English.- When he
appeared, there was a rush forward of the
crowd in the yard, and another rush and
soene of crowding and disorder, when bo
began speaking. He was obliged to wait till
tlie confusion had subsided,' before lie could
proceed. .His enunciation was loud and
vigorous, And as he progressed he, gesticu
lated freely and earnestly, and spoke fluently
though disjointedly. His remarks, trans
lated into connected English, were1 sorae
rhnt follow. w - - , . .. rm
T "Brethren and Sitters ."This is my last min
?te that I ana. here.- In a very few minutes
'm gone. I now confess T killed William
Smith and took bis money from him., I con
fessed it to my minister the first day of my
sentence. I was very sorry because I'd done
such a big crime. God has given me pun
ishment for it: he has let mo down deep
almost to hell, but he has raised me up-it's
he has raised me up so that though I've got
now to die I don't care for all this. I shall
soon be gone, but I know for sure my God
and my Father and Jesus Christ, and he gave
me grace and makes me very happy to go
and well satisfied to have no more with this
world. ' And the place I had my help was
at the foot of the cross of Christ; I bad harder
punishments than other men, but I believe
God did it; he did it because he saw nothing
else would brine me around, an1 I thank
bim. I forgive all that ever did any thing
against me, ana wish yon to torgive me ana
foreive all.'' -r
The earnest and energetic speaker con
tinued In this strain for some minutes, ana
then, saying he wished to speak in German,
addressed his fellow countrymen a few re
marks ia that tongne. , Having closed with a
fervid "Amen, be kneeled and prayed aloud
-in German for a minute, and was followed
by petitions from Pastor Will, and Pastor
Walil, each also Kneeling. .-
. The' death-warrant was read, and Brust
stood brm ana unsliriukineiy upon tlie box,
while the deputies were tying his hands be
hind bim, adUBting his neck-clothing so as to
admit the rope, and drawing and tying the
white cap over his head. He aided in baring
bis neck. Before the cloth was drawn over
bis face he looked wistfully into the sky.
Alter that operation be was only perceptible
as a motionless statue, until the drop fell.
We discovered no tremor in the limbs or
At the sima! he descended some five feet,
breaking his neck by the fall. There was no
strnmrle. no further movement, except a con.
vulsive heaving of the chest, and a shutting;
and opening of the fingers. The heaving of
ine cnesi Decame rarer, uu mere was a siignv
shrusr ot the shoulders, a tremor 01 the nuer-
ers, and Brust was dead." He probably
expired within four minutes after the fall,
which took place at fifteen minutes past
two. Alter nantrine some twenty-lour min.

ana was tauten sown.
MURDERER AND THE VICTIM.
Brust was the son of a humble and toiling
farmer, near Ludwigsberg, iu the kingdom
of Wittemberg, Germany. He was brought
nn to work on his father's farm and received
the usual religious aud secular education of
bis class, as to wnat were nis oamts ana
character before, leaving home for America
we nave inarneu nouiing. u urnveu at
New Orleans about eight years ago, when
some sixteen years of age. After working
there as a laborer for several years, be re
moved to Cincinnati and thence to Cum
minsville, near that city, where he was mar
ried two years ago. His brother, sister, wife
and child, and father-in-law, are still resid
ing there. - His reputation was bad; he was
avoided as a rogue; got indicted for horse
stealing and started for California. It was
there 1 hat he cultivated the acquaintance
with William F. Smith, which resulted in
tlie tragedy of yesterday,
r-'miui, or Smidt, was also s German, and
of Cincinnati. The two returnea togumer,
arriving in New York City, and thence trav
eling to Cincinnati, I'p to the time of his
death. Brnst persisted in saying that Smith
had treated nim very badly, and that he
(Brust) cherished against Smith a feeling
hatred, and thirst fur revenge, on their ar
rival at New York. He stated that a prin
cipal motive of his acooiBpanviDgSuiith from
Cincinnati to St. Louis, and stopping with
bim here at the Green-street Exchange,
was to accomplish his vengeance. The par
ties arrived there at about two o'clock in the
Afternoon of the 7th of March last, on Wed
nesday, and the murder was perpetrated
about the same hoar of the following Friday.
io altercation had ba olwervod between
them. Tbey ate, slept, walked, and talked
together lite brothers, and together retired
to their room, at lialf-pa.t one o'clock in the
afternoon of that fatal tth of March,-' gurely
we need not again detail the often repeated
history of the bloody occurrence there.
Brust fled, walked to Cairo, took passage
thence on the Prairie Rote for Cincinnati,
and on arriving there was almost immedi
ately arrested for a larceny there and a
murder here. The sequel is before the reader1,
in the execution on yesterday.
The Great Rival Feats of Blondin and
Farini at Niagara—The Each Carry a
Man over the Abyss.
Thursday's Buffalo (N. Y.) Stprett, thus
recounts the feats of the rival rope-walkers
over the Niagara River.
, The announcement that these notorious
individuals would each carry a man upon
their respective backs over their respective
cables, drew a crowd to the Falls yesterday.
At least 1,000 persons-went from this city.
Blondin's performance was witnessed by, we
Bhould say, 4,000 people, stationed within his
inclosures to the American and Canadian
sides, and upon the Bridge.. . .
Precisely at four o'clock the Frenchman
made his appearance, and ran out upon his
rope. Having proceeded . perhaps 200
feet, he commenced a series ef gymnas
tic exercises that we venture to say no other
man in the world would dare attempt First,
he lay at full length upon the rope; then he
turned a number of back somersets; then he
hung by both feet; then by one foot; then by
one leg crooked at the knee joint; 'then he
stood upon his head. These feats were per
formed with amazing rapidity a rapidity
that was fearful to witness, or would have
been but for the perfect self-possession that
whb apparent in every motion.
Having reached the center of his rope
Blondin laid aside his balance-pole, placed
his stomach upon the cable and went through
the motions of swimming, after which he
descended the swing, which is a permanent
fixture at tbnt point. This swing hangs
about thirty feet below the cable. Here he
set himself whirling, making eighteen revo
lutions in about as many seconds, and per
formed various other surprising feats, con
cluding and climaxing the whole by hanging
to the swing with bis head downwards. He
theft ascended to the cable, picked up his
pole, and trotted to the Canada side. The
time occupied in the whole journey was a
little over fifteen minutes.
After a delay of about half an hour, which
was mainly occupied in adjusting the guys,
Monsieur Blondin made his appearance on
the Canada end of tho cable, bearing his
agent, Mr. Harry Colcord, upon bis back.
Considering the fact that Mr. Colcord weighs
Lta pounus, ana tnat ttionain lumseit weigas
but 125, it may be imagined 'that he had a
pretty gooa loaa to carry, it was perlcctly
wonderful to witness the ease with which
Blondin achieved this most difficult and dan
gerous undertaking. Colcord left his perch
we can not think of a better word but
twice during the. entire walk, and then
merely stood upon the rope for a half minnte
or so, for the purpose of "straightening out"
In exactly fourteen minutes from the time
they left the Canada shore, tbey were re-
ceivea upon tne American siae with the
hearty plaudits of the assembled thousands.

A Great Panic in England. According
to the Newcastle (England) Etpreu, consid
erable panio was created in that port lately
by the arrival of a fleet of French luggers.
Tne news soon spread throughout the town
that the French were invading the country.
A similar excitement was created ia Liver
pool soon after, when it became known
along the line of docks that a large French
steam frigate was coming into port. At
some of the north docks the laborers rushed
frantically into the pier heads, in order to
satisfy themselves as to the presence of the
"ruthless invader," but tbeir nutter was
soon hushed when the Frenchman politely
saluted the New Brighton Fort, a comph

The Chinese Rebellion—The Capture of
Soochow by the Rebels.
The capture of the wealthy city of Soochow
by the Chinese rebels, has created the deep
est consternation at Shanghai and tne sur
rounding country. The Shanghai corre
spondent of the New York Journal of Com
The effect of this sad news npon the Chi
nese it is impossible to describe; perfect con
sternation seems to have seized upon all
classes. Imagine London or New York
taken by a foreign foe, and the panic which
would ensue not only among residents, but
those of the country and neighboring towns,
and the picture would fall Bhort of that wit
nessed here. 1 For there would be the con
sciousness of mercy at the hands of the in
vaders; here, on the contrary, the capture of
a town is followed by indiscriminate mas-1
sacre, general pillage, a ruthless destruction
of property, and the most terrible atrocities
which it is possible for human beings to per
petrate. No wonder, then, that tlie very
rumor of approaching rebels is sufficient to
produce a panic among the people; and
when the terrible and long-dreaded danger
at length approaches, they become as chiU
dren, and fly here and there, without know
ing whether to places of security or danger.
From all the towns in this province there
has been a perfect exodus of people. Na
tives of the district seeking the Blielter of un
frequented spots in the country; those from
other provinces flying to their homes; and
every available vessel, native and foreign,
has been taken at exorbitant prices by these
trembling fugitives, to convey them to a
place of fancied security.
As for the capture of Soochow, though
that city is only ninety miles distant, we are
yet in doubt ns to their character whether
tbey are the Taiping rebels who have so long
held Nankin, or disbanded soldiers of the
Imperial army, or local marauders. Of this
alone are we certain, that the whole prov
ince, with the exception of Shanghai and
environs, is at present not under tlie control
of the Imperial Government; for the Governor-General
and all the authorities who
hare succeeded in escaping with their lives,
have sought refuge in the inferior town of
Shanghai, without soldiers, without money,
and with very few followers; and,; but for
the presence of foreign troops, they would
nave oeen ere tins wunout Beans as well.
Since the Governor-General's arrival, he
has hud several interviews with the English
and Frenob Ministers, and to-day with the
American Minister. The precise subjectand
results of them are not made public. It is

General Washington in a Tempestuous
From nil accounts, when General Washing
ton was in a passioD, it was a grand one, with
just that sort of intensity that gives us an
idea of suppressed power, of a strength we
do not quite see. '. $ ,
. In the volume recently prepared by the
executors of Richard Rush, entitled Occas
ional J'roduclions, we find an anecdote illus
trating this. Wben, in 1701, the officer ar
rived with dispatches announcing the defeat
of St. Clair, Washington was at dinner. His
Secretary, therefore, left the table to receive
tbem, Dut tne messenger said bis instructions
were to deliver them to General Washington
in person. The Secretary returned, and
Washington left tho table to . see the officer.
On coming back, be made an apology for his
auseucw, uuv buiu uuujiuk. ui iue uusiuess,
and maintained bis usual affability during
the whole evening.
. At ten o clouk the company had all cone.
and Mrs. Washington retired, leaving only
me ureueriu ana ms oecreuirr, wuu aescrtoes
the scene. Washington walked the floor for
some minutes, and then sat down. But it
wrg plain that be had been suppressing a
strong emotion. Suddenly he broke out:
it s all over 1st Ulair s defeated routed
the officers nearly all killed, the men by
wholesale the rout complete too shocking
to think of and & surprise into the bargain! 1
He uttered this with great yehemence,
paused, got up, and walked the room, then
directly stopped short and broke out: "Yes,

Later from General Walker's Filibustering
Expedition—Emigration from the
Town of Truxillo.
Friday's New Orleans Picayune says:
The brig Creot'e, Capt. Fonbister, arrived
at this port last evening, from Ruatan Island
the 17lh inst. She reports that the bark
Active, a small coaster which plies between
the Bny Islands and mainland, arrived at
Port McDonald late in the evening of the
,15th, from Truxillo, bringing "a load of pas
sengers and Word that the town was to be
attacked that night by a Btrong force from
aback (i.e., the country around). The bsrk
Carib is expected over to-day with other
passengers.'. ( .
Upon inquiry, we learn this in explanation:
That the friends of Guardiola had assembled
in considerable, but by no means threatening
numbers, outside the city, soon after Walker
took possession of it, for the declared pur
pose of attacking it. This frightened a great
many Ignorant and timid people, who ap
'plied to General Walker for protection, and
the General, in order to reassure them, tcld
them they bad better go over to Ruatan
Island, where they would certainly be safe.
And taking him at his word, they hod ac
tually proceeded thither, as stated, ia con
siderable numbers. '
Nevertheless, we are assured on the best
authority that it was all a false alarm, that
no attack was really meditated upon the
town, and that in any case which seems
probable, Walker, from his position, and the
means at his disposal, would be able to
make at all times the most successful de
fense. Furthermore, we learn from Truxillo that
the city remained, up to the 15th instant,
perfectly quiet, in the possession of Walker;
that the guns bad been all remounted on the
forts in splendid style; that the best health
and discipline prevailed in the army, and
that, so fur from having apprehensions of an
attack, all the men were looking forward
with high hopes to an expedition to Com
ayaguo, the capital, where they expected to
meet Cabanas, or other leaders of the Liberal
From Ruatan there is nothing new, and
from the Belize, British Honduras, whonce
the Creole originally sailed, nothing but
this, that Walker's landing at Truxillo had
created no excitcnipnt whatever, nor was it
likely that it would in any way engage the
attention oi tne Jintisn authorities.
Peculiar Influence of the Gulf Stream.
The New York Evening Ex press says that
tbe great oceanic current which proceeds
along our Eastern coast has been suffering
from a lassitude, the cause of which they
were not at all able to explain. With the
mercury averaging about 80 in the middle
ef th day, the weather has folt as oppressive
ae wut-'U li is si iiiiitjiy uu uruiuarjr uuoasiuus.
The sun bns seldom made its appearance,
and then with diminished brilliancy. Heavy
banks ot clouds lay piled up around the hori
zon, while masses of "scud'' floated across
the zenith. For several days it threatened
to rain, but failed to fulfil the threat. At
last, on .Tuesday .afternoon and night, the
pent up elements discharged themselves ia
earnest. , Yesterday was clearer, and the
mercury stood a little higher in the tube;
but the wind still continued to come from
the ocean, and every person felt uncomforta
ble., The rain of . last night has again par
tially cleared the atmosphere.
The Gulf Stream, as we have already
stated, is responsible for the annoyance. In
Bummer it hugs the coast of this part of
North America mote closely than In winter;
and the south-east wind brings ns more di
rectly under the Influence of that heated
current. Tbe atmosphere, on passing over
it. becomes surcharged with vapors, which
?artially congeal upon reaching the kind.
Jiat moisture is so abundant that tbe human
system is unable to perform the insensible
perspiration required to preserve it in a high
.tone of health and vigor, and hence the dis
agreeable feelings experienced.
The . prevailing atmospheric currents ia
this section of country come from the north
west; and in traversing the continent, these
have become nearly exhausted of their
moisture.. Hence they are found to absorb
it freely from animals as well as the surface
of the ground, and in that condition the
human being, discharging treely througb
the porous system, feels unusually active in
'body and clear ia intellect. The physical
and mental characteristics of the American
people, in fact, are owing, in a great degree,
to the winds which prevail in this country.

a climate more mild and moist than ours,
because tbe South-west winds are more or
less laden with moisture collected from the
Gulf Stream and the remainder of the North
Atlantic. This difference ia climate has
produced a different type of mankind one
tnat is neavy, slow, phlegmatic, and dun, in
comparison with ourselves. Owing to simi
lar causes the Anglo-Saxon stock has pro
duced still other varieties In South Africa,
Australia and mndostan.
The Gulf Stream is an excellent "institu
tion" in December; but if it can do no better
by us than for the last few days, we shall
vote it a nuisance.
The Famous Convicts at Sing-Sing Penitentiary.
A visitor at Sing-Sing, N. Y- says "We

apartment lor a prison, lie was clothed la

booted feet deprived him of the air common
to those surrounding bim. His sallow face
bore a pleasant smile as he spoke to our com
panion. But, contrary to tne general sup
position, nis ceil is precisely like the others.
We were also shown an obese negress,
named Sally Miller, who is so heavy that
she used herself as a. weight to bold down
her victim while another woman robbed her
pockets. When she came here she weighed
300 pounds. She has been imprisoned ten
years, and has three more to serve. In the
hat shop, on a front Beat as you enter, sits
Mrs. Rooinson, the "vailed murderess." She
bos no vail now. She wears a half smirk
continually on bcr round face, and her hair
is black aud glossy, and her cheeks red; but
she is by no means a handsome, nor even a
good looking woman. She looks as heart
less as a viper not hardened, but naturally
heartless. Her features are coarse. She,
too, is here for life. Near her sat Mrs. Lit
tle, the poisoner of her husband. She is a
youngish and quite good looking w oman.
Iler term of imprisonment is seven years.
Although there are some marked exceptions,
the general aspect of the body of prisoners at
Sing-Sing is bardly of that desperate and
villainous character for which people look in
the inmates of a State Prison. The offend
ers seem, to be young men, by a very hu-ge
majority, and among them were sums hand
some aud intelligent faces." . . .
