that ho committed n murder in Mexico,
for which he wos condemned to death,

ident Polk to two yeors imprisonment,
from which ho csenped and wont to Kan

John Drown, Sr., nnd finnlly engaged in
the Harper's Ferry nfiiiir.
Tho speech of Owen Drown, ono of the
Fugitives whom Gov. JJcnnison rclnscd
to deliver up, wns broken nnd discon
nected, nnd after speaking for ft long
time, ho wns finally put down by cries
for Coppic, another Fugitivo, who fled to

State, for reasons about na Filly ns those
given by Gov. Dennison, refused to de
Coppic taking tho stand, was greeted
with much npplauso. lie was unwell

to thank his friends for their kindness.

that Gov. Kirkwood would then Btirren

have adopted tho black ribbon nbout the

March 16, 1860. Important Arrest--Boynton the
Absconding Washington Clerk
Lnst evening Capt. Dowling and officer
Jourdan of the Sixth Ward succeeded in
arresting S. G. Doynton, lato it clerk in
Washington under Mr. Forney. Ho is
nccusod, os our readers must know, of
absconding with upwnrd of 5-00,000
worth of Post Offico scrip, which ho had
leccived from other parties for tho pur
poso of soiling. It is allodgcd, however,
that ho pocketed the cash, and intonded to
leave for Uuropo by tho next steamer.
It was not supposed that Doynton was
in tho city at all, but yesterday evening
Captain Dowling received information
that ho was somowhero around, as nlso
nn incomplete description of his appear
ance. Dy this blender thread hung the
wholo case, nnd It was indeed courngeous
to think oven of tho possibility of n suc
cessful issue. Tho officers started out
and searched Droadway through but
without success for somo time, until nt
last they observed tho very gentleman
thoy woro looking after walking tlown
Droadway lato in tho afternoon with nil
thosow froid imaginable
Atlirsttho Captain was not certain
that this was tho right mau, but strongly
supposed it was, determining to bo pret
ty suro boforo veiiturinir on an arrest. At
last thu accused stopped before tho Inter
national Hotel, when it was settled that
ho should bo announced of his unpleas
ant position. Captain Dowling there
fore called him by name, and Doynton
did not pretend to deny that ho was tho
sought aftor party, but quietly procodod
to tho station houso where he was placed
under strict 6urvoillanco.
Tho prisonor is a good looking gentlc-
mnn.of about 39 years of ago, and takes
His arrest quite coolly, enjoying nimscii
by smoking cigars amt writing letters to
kis friends "at homo and nbrond." Ho
will bo detained to await ony requisition
'kat. may demand his body at any placo.
