A Tale of Blood—A Woman Murders
her Husband Son and Commits
A fearful tragedy occurred last Sundav at a
lonely farm-house about three miles from Ver
sailles, Ripley County, Indiana. The premises
wero occupied by a farmer named John Wind
sor, his wife and a son, the latter aged fourteen
years. It teems that the man and woman
livod unhappily together, and their frerjuent
violent altercations were a subjeotof oomment
to the nei rhborbood. Upon the afternoon ef
unday their dauzhtor, who had been UDOn a
visit to a neighboring acquaintance, with whom
she remained several days, returned home, and
entering the house, was paralysed by a sight of
sueh intense horror as almost to deprive her of
reason. Extended upon the floor, weltoring in
their blood, lay tho bodies of her parents and
her brother. The man was lying upon his face
near tho hearth, with his head nearly severed
from the shoulders; tho body of the boy lay in
another part of the room, with several murder
ous outs in his boad, and closo by the bloody
weapon, a sharp ax, with whioh this double
deed of horror had been consummated. In the
kitchen adjoining was the body of the wretched
woman, her throat severed from ear to ear,
and a4 large butcher-knife, with which she had
taken her life, still clasped in her hand. -
it is conjectured taat while tne husband was
in the act of kindling a fire upon the hearth,
his wife seised the ax and doalt him the fatal
blow, which nearly severed the head from the
body, and then turning upon her son, who,
trom being in nis night clothes, baa evidently
in alarm just arisen from bis bed, shedispatohod
him with the same weapon, nfter which she
rushed into the next apartment and oonoluded
too tragedy by the sacrifice of her own life.
The poor girl, who is the sole survivor of the
ill-fated family, has received so severe a shock
from the horrid scone whioh wsb so unexpectedly
revealed to her, that she has ever since been
bordering upon insanity. ........
Can Iron and Steel Plates Resist Shot?
A series of experimental trials have been
carried on during the past fortnight nt Ports
mouth, with a view of ascertaining tho
amount of resistance offered by Iron and
steel plates of various manufactures when
opposed to heavy ordnance nt a short rnngo".
TUe trials aro understood to navo relerenoe
to the' fitturo coating of the steam ram now
in progross of coustruntiuu. The practice
has been carried on from the Stork gun
boat tender to Hor Majesty's ship Excellent,
gunnery ship in Portsmouth harbor, both
from a 32-pounder and a 95-cwt. gun, the
latter throwing a solid 68-pound shot, with
16-pound chnrgo of powder; the distance of
range 200 yards. At this distance the results
of tbe experiments bavo demonstrated in the
clearest possiblo manner that no' iron or steel
pinto mat nas yet Deon mnnutactured can
withstand tho solid shot from tho 95-cwt.
gun at a short range. The first shot would not
penetrate through the iron pinto, but it would
fracturo it, and on throe or four striking the
pinto in tue same place, or in tno immediate
neighborhood, it would be smashed to pieces.
As the results oi tuo trial allccted tho steel
tilatos. it nroved that a steel-clothed shin
could bo far moro easily destroyed than a
wooqen-stded one, and that on tue smashing
in of one of the steel plates the destruction
of life on tho armed ship's decks, supposing
tno broken piate to De driven tnrougn the
ship's side, would bo something dreadful to
contemplate, from the splintered material.
At from uu to uu yards iron-clothed snips
would bo m comparative safety rrom tne el-
led ot an enemy's broadside, but it niUBt be
borne in mind that the effects of eonoontratad
firine have yet to bo ascertained on the sides
of an iron or steel-clothed. ship; an account
also must be taken of tho damage the wood
work forming the inner side of such a ship
would receive from the driving in et the
broken nlates. and which, ns far as the xiros-
ent experiments nave illustrated, would ap
pear to prove, tnai an iron or sieei-ciaa snip,

OcuAN. Captain Uraon, of the bark Pride of

August, and arrived itt New York on Saturday,
furnishes the following description of the
Northern Light of Friday, September 2, as
witnessed by him on the Atlantic, in latitude
28:30 North, and longitude 79:30 East :
At twenty-five minutes to one in the morn
ing a bright spot or cloud appeared in the
north-west, whioh shot up rays resembling the
Aurora at tho north in winter, and in thirty or
forty minutes formed an arch across the hori
zon, from north-west ,to north-east, which
became lighter as it arose, aud at one o'olock
and fifteen minutes it was light enongh to read
the smallest print without a light. At the time
the horizon was cloudy, and overhead was very
clear, the larger stars being just Been. The
arch pasted over to the southward at two
o'olock and fifteen minutes, when it became
dark again.' i 5l ,; ,
0f Bill Lloyd, Co notorious libertine,
who ran away with Mrs. Shaw, of Louisville,
is now in jail at Chicago, Illinois. After en
joying the honeymoon he left. her, saying that
sho was a rather expensive piece of crinoline to
suit the state of his exchequer. The Louisville
Democrat says; ' ' .
' "He took with him, our informant states, a
diamond breastpin, bolonging to Mrs. Shaw, a
gift from her husband. Incensed at this, she
pursued him to Chicago, and had him arrested.
He is now in jail awaiting the sppoaranco nf
the husband to prosecute the case. While it
is very proper that Lloyd and Mrs. bhaw
should pay the penalty of the law, it is to be
hoped that the husband will give himself no
further oondern about then, than to see that
justice be done, and that is what tho fugitivos
most fear." u . . .
A NOBLI MOTHRR NARROW ESCAFR. AS
the morning train from this plaoo to Chicago
came near Rock River bridge, on Monday last,
the engineer, Robert Waugh, discovered a little
girl at play on the traok. . Ho sounded tho
wbisilo at its highust, ohaifiMt now, and used
every possible effort to stop the train. The
little child kept moving along tho track, ap
parently frightened by the whistle, but did
not leave tho truck. The mother of tho child,
who lived in a house nearthe bridge, seeing ber
child in danger, made a spring to save her,
nnd ruahiDg in front of the engino, caught her
child and foil over tho opposite niilo. Tho en
gine brushed her clothes as she fell, and passed
on a short distance before it could be stopped.
Tho conductor, Captain Phillips, ran to the
place and found the mother had fainted, but
both mother and child wore saved. He took
the child in bis arms, and restoratives being
used, the mother soon revivod. Who can toll
the joy of that mother to kuow her child was
saved ? Had she hesitated a moment, or have
been only a second later, both mother and child
must have been crushed bonoath the wheels of
the engine. We did not learnt her name, bat
whoever she is, she is a brave and heroic wo
