THE GOLD CLASP.
iii- rnor. j. ii INQHAM.
A inodost and exceedingly pretty young
girl, plainly attired, culered ono of the
goldsmith's stores on street, and
feting that a gentleman was engaged with
tlio proprietor, sho timidly shrunU asido
near the door until ho should bo at Icisuic.
Tho assistants were also occupied with
cui-toniors whoso dress and appearance
thowed theni to belong to the class of tho
rich, and so sho was suffered to remain for
some timo, standing thero, before she could
bo attended to.
Tho gentleman, who was a fine, noble
looking person, with a remarkably polished
address, seeing her waiting, euurteously
stood aside, and said to tho goldsmith
'' Do not occupy yourself with mo now,
Mr.Uroochard.l can examine these watch
es hy myself, while you set what this young
person wants, who has been waiting so long
and patiently, to got an opportunity to
speak to you."
" Whut do you want, Miss!'' asked tho
goldsmith, with a look thut convoyed a
reproof to her for interrupting him while
engaged with a customer ol more value to
Tho girl hesitatingly approached the
rouutcr, nnd taking Irom her b 'som 'a
small gold clasp, bent over to him and said
in a low, trembling voice
"I wish you would be bo kind as to keep
this ft few days, and let uio havo seven
d liars on it."
Low as bhe spoke, her soft, trembling
tones roichcd tho cars of Melleury, tho
gentleman wlio was-prcsent, and ho turned
to obscrvo her face, and hear the reply of
tho teddsu-'ith to this timid and painlully
uttered request. The goldsmith took thu
clnfp scornfully, between his fingers, and
throwing it down, said sharply to her
" I his is no pawnbroker's shop, girl
and if it was, that thiug is not worth two

"And so you think to get it out of mo !"

" I do not want it, child, said Mollenry,
feelingly puffin? the hand aside, while she
urged it upon him.
" Indeed, sir, you must tako it, for I
shall feel in soiuo degree under obligations
to a stranger. Besides I wish to call and
redeem it. Will you givo mo your address,
sir !" and as tho spoke, ho still declining
tho jewel, she 1 id it on tho show box,
" Oh, no matter but if you insist, il is
tho United Stales Hotel."
" Thank you, sir, you can never know
tho blessing to others that w.ill follow your
kindness to mo to-day." Thus speaking,
and looking upon him with an expression
of gratitude in hor tearful eyo, she loft the
shop, forgetting tho clasp, which sho left
upon the show case.
" Will you look at ono of these watches,
now, Col. Mollenry!" superciliously asked
tho goldsmith, without lifting his condemned
"No, sir," answered tho gcnflemao,
sternly. And taking his cloves and cauc,
walked from tho shop of tho avaricious
goldsmith, who, too close to risk a triSe to
relievo tho wait's of a poor family, hsd
probably lost a large umount by tho pur
chases Lis wealthy customer might have
made, as well as Ins own self-respect, such
as it was; for avarice always sinks into its

" Now there goes a man who throws

smith looking niter 1 iin. " He thinks me

I lien looking around among his shop

yet with a chccriul air, locked the clasp in

placed it in his pocket. Ho had hardly

and without speaking, or even looking at
him, cast his eyes upon tho show caso for
tho clisp, which ho recollected, after goinc,
out, the young girl had laid down, but did
not tako up again, and so ho returned back
for it. Abraham Urooehard was very
busily engaged in replacing the watches to

however, glad to find you havo the disposi

as they walked along. "It was ltobcrt's

Col. Mollenry stopped with hor at a
justico's office, and briefly and clearly
made his complaint, and in a very few
minutes Mr. Broochard was brought into
tho presence of the magistrate. IIo ap
peared to bo in great trepidation, and was
pale as ashes; for ho had been suddenly
taken without warning Irom behind ins

assistants. Cut. Melleury and tho young
lady bciuj bw rn, deposed tint thoy had
last seen the cbsp on tho shaw caso, whore
each wcut out aud loft it, Tho former
further deposed that ho had not gone threo
steps from tho door before he returned aud
found it miiiing, and no one iu the vicinity
but tho defendant.
The goldsmith was thon called up to bo
sworn as to bis knowledge of tho (acts.
He approached the stand whero tho magis
trate hold tho Biblo, and laid his hands on
it with a perceptible tremor of his whlo
body; but lovo of money was stronger than
tho tear of tho law, and he tnok the oatu.
It appeared as if ho would sink through
tho floor when he took it; but tho moment
ho was done, he recovered his audacity.
At this moment an officer, who, at tho
eucccstion of Col. Mollenry, had boon
privately uispateneu ujr iuu jusuuu wiiu u

now entered and placed something iu the

He was, a few weeks afterwards, taken
from his prison, and tried for perjury ; but
Lis reason forsook him, and instead of tho

Thus was avarico and parsimony, and in
diffcrcnoo to tho sufferings of the po;ir
punished in this life. Tho acta of this sel
fish man show to all how that acquisitive
ness, wrongly directed, is fatal to its pos
sessors, Col. .MoHcnrv proved to bo a bachelor;
and though a littlo turned of thirty, his

Through tho po'itcncss of our worthy
Shotiff, says tho Toledo Commercial, wo
last evening paid a visit to R, J, M. Ward,
who gavo us the following confession in ro
tation to tho murder of his wifo : Ward
seemed to bo deeply affocted, frequently
interrupting his disclosuro by exclamations
of deep .sorrow and regret for tho crime ho
had committed, and giving us a full and
complcfo disclosuro of tho same. After
taking down his confession, wo read tho
samo to htm, when ho pronounced it cor
rect ; wo givo it to our readers as wo had
it from his own lips, in tho presence of the
Sheriff and others :
On Tuesday ovoning, February 3d, Mr9
Ward and myself had somo words during
which Mrs. Ward Btruck mo on tho head
with a fluid lamp, also on tho right side of
tho nose, causing tho samo to bleed freely,
I begged her not lo striko mc, took tho
lamp away from her ond went to bed
Wo arouso between six and seven o'clock
on Wednesday morning, I epoko to hor a-
bout the blow she had given me, showing
hor where sho had struck mo on tho prev
ious evening, also tho blood on tho bolster
aud tick, Sho said sho wished l had bled
to death, and picking up a stick of hickory
wood, sho attempted to strike mo, I ward
ed off tho blow, which fell from hor hand,
and a3 sho stooped to pick it up, I seized
a flat iron and in tho heat of passion,
struck her with it on the right sido of tho
head, upon and under tho car, driving tho
car-ring into-.thc ficsh. Sho fell to tho
floor, exclaimiDg, " Oh 1 Ward, you havo
killed mo 1" I dropped the flat iron and
went to her ; sho was lying on her sido, I
turned her over on hor back, and placed a
petticoat under her head, supposing sho was
only stunned 1 used all tho moans in my
power to rcstoro her, but in half an hour
sho died, hiving spoken onco, "0, my dear

Alter sho was dead, l wrapped her head
in a petticoat and drew the body under
the bed, to conceal it in case any one
should eomo in. About half past 8 o'clock,
Win. H, Nathan, a mulatto boy came into
tho house with somo milk ; I took tho milk
from him and ho loft. I then went to
liiba Allen's grocory, bought a pound of
sugar, told him I was going away. I then
returned to the house, and after a short
time commenced cutting up tho body.
I toro tho clothes open from tho throat
down. I then took a pocket knifo and
opened tho body, took out tho bowels first
and put them in the stove, upon tho wood ;
they being filled with air, would mako a
noise in exploding, so 1 took my knifo aud
pricked holes through them, to prevent tho
uoisc ; then took out the liver and heart
and put thom in tho stovo ; found it very
difficult to burn them ; had to tako tho
poker and frequently stir thom beforo thoy
could bo destroyed ; found tho lungs very
much decayed, I then took out' the blood
remaining in tho cavity of tho body, by
placing a copper kettle close to tho same,
and ecooping it out with my hands. I then
dipped portions of her clothing in tho samo
and burnt it together, tearing it I put tue
blood in tho stovo alone, that it might bo
disoovered. I then mado an incision
through the flesh, along down eaoh side,
brnko off the ribs and took out the breast
bone, and throwing it into a large boiler,
unjointed the arms at tho shoulders, doub
led them up, and placed them in the boiler ;
then severed tho remaining portions oftho
body, by placing a stick over tho same,
cutting away tho flesh and ligiments with
a knife. T hen tried to sever tho head
from tho body, it proving ineffectual, 1 put
tho wholo upper oftho body into tho boiler,
Xhen took a large carvinj knilo and sever
ed the lower portion of tho body, unjointed
the legs at tho knee, and again at tho hip
joint ; cut the thighs open and took out tho
bones aud burnt thcni up ; thoy burned
On Thursday night I commenced burn
ing tho bdy, by placing tho upper and
back portions of tho samo togcthor with
tho head, in tho stovo. On l'riday morn
ing, finding it had not heen consumed, I
built a largo fire by placing wood around
and under it, and in a short time it was
wholly cousuuud, except somo poitions of
tho larger bones and of tho skull. Tho
remniuing portions of the body wore kept
in tho boiler aud iu tubs; under the bed
covered up with a corded petticoat, and
wero thero at the time tho first so trch was
modo on Saturday by Oonstablo Curtis.
Hearing on Saturday evening that tho
citizens wero not satisfied with tho search
made by Mr. Curtis, I proceeded on Sun
day morning to destroy tlio remainder of
tho body, by burning tho samo in tho stove,
cutting tho lleshy parts ot tho thighs int i
j small btrips, tho moro readily to disposo of
them. Un Monday morning x took up
tho ashes in a small keg, sifting out the
larger pieces of bono wilh ray hands, plac
ing the samo in my overcoat pockets, which
X scattered in various plaoes in the holds,
at different times. Also took tho major
portion of tho trunk nails, together with
tbo hinges, and scattered them in different

every vestige of hor clothing, disposiugof

AtrooiouB Oaso of Cruolty.
A Botton Negro Tortured to Death on
Board a British Vessel.
In tho Wcstetn Circuit, (Exeter) March
SO, Hugh Orr, a tea captain, was tried
for the murder of Edward Devoo.
A caso of such fearful cruelty and atro
city as was detailed in the opening of the
oase, was perhaps, never heard. Tho pris
oner, a fine looking man, was a captain
of a vessel called the Hannah Jauo, of
about 120 tons burden. Tho deceased
was a black man, a native of Boston, a-
bout 32 years of age, and was engtged as
cook in the ship, Tlio crew of the ship
consisted of the captain, six men and a boy.
in l'cbruary, ihou, the vessel sailed from
London to Newcastle for a cargo of eoals,
and then proccccdcd to Senegal, then to
Capo Verde Islands, to lUo Grande, and
thon back to England. Whilo thev were
in tho Senegal river tho Captoin commen
ced a series of cruelties boating and flor
ging tho cook day by day for four weeks
until, becoming we.iker and weaker from
these cruelties, death, moro merciful than
his persecutor, relieved him from his suf
ferings on the 3d of July. Ho was beaten
by tho Captain and mate with ropes, with
a "cat," and when his back was sore ho was
scrubbed with a brush. Tho poor fellow
used to cry for mercy, and called upon tho
crow to come and help him, but tho crew
dared not interfere. When tho vessel
reached Bio Grande, tho crow informed
tho Consul there of the treatment the cook
had received, aud of his death, but he said
ho could not do anything in the matter,
The ship arrived at 1'lymouth iu Decern
ber, aud an inquiry was instituted, which
ended in tho C-ipt. bring sent to prison for
trial. A Boaman testified :
I saw tho Captiin and mate beat the
cook wish tho stavo of a cask. I saw the
captain making the cat with pan of a broom
stick and somo cords, and that night I heard
the cook cryiug out in tlio cabin. I was
then forward. Tho next night, I heard tho
cook cryingoutin tho cabin, and Iwontand
looked, and I saw both Captain and mate
flogging tho cook, who was lashed down to
tho liandle of the captain's chest by tho
thumbs. He was flogged on the bare back,

Captain afterwards. 1 saw this repeated

Once I saw tho captain and mato flog him,
and 1 counted the lashes. Tho captain
gave him 48 and tho mate 300. Tho cap

with a plaited rope with knots in it. When
ho was dead tho body was cut everywhere.
Tho mate saw him lying on the deck the
night beforo ho died, and kicsed him on
tbo breast with his heavy sea boots, and he
struck him with a large heavy Dloclr. X

At tlii j time, sir, thoro tiro five young

loads of iron, in damp and dismal cells of
Utah ronitcntiary, for no enmo known to

disapprobation of tho doctrino of Mormon
ism, which, here, is tho blackest crirao a
man can commit. It is worthy of remark,
that tbc-o young men aro not Mormons,
but were pa3fing on their way to Califor

are doomed too sickly and torturing death,
