Extraordinary Attempt at Murder in
Canada.
On Monday morning of last week, It will
be remembered, an extensive robbery of gold
and silver watches was committed at the
jewelry store of Mr. Fintuch, on Chnrch
street, Toronto, Canada. Considerable mys
tery surrounded the affair. On Sunday morn
ing last, a telegraphio dispatch was received
at Toronto, from the Mayorat Oakville,whioh
afforded not only the long-sought informa
tion, but communicated the intelligence that
the possession of the booty by one 'of the
thieves had led to an attempt on the part of
one of them to murder the other by shooting
him. It appears that three men were con
cerned in the robbery. Their names are
Andrew Adams, Edward Short and Thomas
Cummins. They were all in Toronto on
Saturday, drinking. In the evening, Adams
and Cummins started for Oaivllle. Short
was rauoh intoxicated. Cummins had In bis
possession eight of the stolen watches, some
of the lockete and chains, and also tome
money; Adams had none of the plunder, but
he was furnished with a double-barrelled
pistol, loaded with, slugs.. t y. , .' .
Whether he then first oonoeived the horrid
design of murdering his eompaoJon for the
purpose of securing the plunder to himself. It
is impossible to say, but would appear that
the act was premeditated, for it was atated
that Adams was heard to say to Cummins, "I
wonder if this pistol was discharged at my
head, as it Is now loaded, whether it would
kill me." Cummins was lying down when he
was shot, the slugs entering the right side of
his faoe one about the region of the temple,
and the other just below the eye. Adams find
ing that he had not killed the man, and be
coming alarmed for bia personal safety, im
mediately took to his heels, without attempt
ing to get possession of the property. Cum
mins, although so seriously injured and suffer
ing from the loss of blood, managed to crawl
to some habitation In the looality, and give in
formation of what had happened. 1 The polio
were apprised of the matter, and a dlspatoh
was lent .to Toronto giving a description of
Adams and Short
Adams and Short were soon afterward ar
rested. Adams's real name is now said to be
William Whitney, and that he is a deserter
from the United States Army. II is about
twenty-one years of age.
Alleged Literary Discovery-Pilgrims
Progress a Plagiarism.
The Courier dei Etait Unit contains the fol
lowing singular announcement under the head
of Fail Divert . , . . ,, ,
"There is not in Groat Britain a more re
markable book than ' Pilgrim's Progress.' It
is a sort ot xeiemaohus of r roteetant religious
literature, and is more highly esteemed by the
English than Pension's chef d'aemrt. Hith
erto this work has been attributed to John
Banyan. ; But a younz woman, named Catha
rine Isabella Curt, has just published in London
a translation or an old rrenoh manuscript In
the Brisish Museum, whioh is, almost word
for word, Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress. The
manuscript la the work of a olergyman, O. de
Oreville, who lived in the fifteenth century.
Its title, in Norman English, is ' Pylegremage
of the Sowlo.' The printer, Caiton, who oc
cupied the same caosition ' In London as the
jstiennes in 1'nrls, published in 1843 a transla
tion of this manuscript, of which , the authen
ticity appears inoontestlble. ' It would seem;
therefore, that the credit of this celebrated
book belonca to Franoe, although Franoe hith
erto has shown less appreciation of the original
than England has bestowed on theoopy."
We know nothing of the authority on which
this statement, which looks liko a canard, Is
founded ; but if tho story should happen to be
true, it will oreato no little hubbub in the lit
erary world. ; r l' ,'

it appeared to be lodged between the inner

hundreds on lengths of rice-straw, and ten of
uinittuuiueui, terming a t(rtnirare jequal to
one ounce or dollar's worth of silver.. The
bundles of one hundred are seldom untied, and
thus it happens that cash of high antiquity
aw frequently discovered by the few foreign
ers who have interested thnmnAlv.a In .hid
most anoient of existing coinage. The cash of
ue seven.a century ot our era differed only in
the inscrlnttnn from thru nf h
and are sometimes found in circulation. Tho
debased cash, to which I have already alluded,
are euiuoit in immense quanilUOS by ulShOUOSt
mandarins, as well as by private speoulatora,
and are mixed with the government oash in as
large a proportion as possible.
In some of the Northern provinces ch'ao, or
Iarea cash, worth 10. SO nr inn nf th .mail
coin, are in circulation. Foreigners, however,
unless they especially seek it, seldom soe the
oash. . The only currency acknowledged by
the people at present la the Mexican dollar,
which, however, haa entirely lost the faoti
tiona value it onoe bore'. It circulates at its
oomraeroial value of 4s. 2d. sterling. The
Carolus dollar, whioh was once worth 7s. 6d.
sterling, will now scarcely oirculato at par, and
United States and South American dollars are
not in favor. Small ohango is supplied by
English 'shillings and American halves and
quarters ; below this, the Byoee, or broken sil
ver, comes Into play ; and when small change
is aoaroe, as it very often 1b, one either goes
without, or acoepts oheroots as a oiroulating
medium. '.
Pere La Chaise.
Pere la Chaise, as is well known, is the
great burying-ground of Paris. ; The New
Orleans Fieayme'i correspondent of that oity
mentions the following Interesting particulars :
I visited Pere la Chaise a few days ago, and
the Jewish Cemetery beinr open. ( which la
something unusual,) I entered it to visit poor
Rachel's tomb; like most other French tombs,
it is in tne lorm ol a chapel, it and the vault
of the Rotohsohild family are approached
through a row of flowers about eight feet long,
planted m oeas set in stone, and raited four
feet from the ground; the effect is striking.
The chapel is literally crammed full of yellow
wreaths and bouquets of flowers, all aa fresh as
if placed there an hour ago; they must be re
newed daily. I was aurprised to see on the
ledge (if it was a Papist chapel I should say
alter) twenty or thirty letters, which' had evi
dently eome through the malls. ' What can be
th meaning of this T They were placed there
by the family. In the Rotsohild's chapel
there wag a visiting card on the ledge. Isn't
i a strange custom r me la Uba.se has re
cently received some masnlfioent tombs.
Prinoe Demldoff has spent $20,000 on his
mother's tomb, which, except General Qobort'.
Is the finest In the cemetery: and this sum of
money nas been absorbed by merely embel
lishing the old tomb. Th other oostly now
tombs are one to Marshal Marmont'a widow:
one to Alfred de Musset; one to Souvestre, the
novelist; one to de Balzac; one to Pradier, the
oulptor: one to Viaoonti, the architeot of the
new Louvre. Beranger Is buried in the same
vault with Manuel, and his friends have con
tented themselves with cutting his name on
Manuel's tomb; that la oheap, certainly.
Brutal Murder in Pennsylvania.
' ;'A young man, sixteen years of age, was
brought to the prison of Chester County,
charged with the murder of a young girl aged
nine years. - The child was found in the Ooto
raro Creek, in West Nottingham Township,
Chester County, with her head mashed and
battoredin a moat horrible manner. The young
man arrested was aresldentof West Nottingham
and was engaged plowing in an adjacent field.
Some blood was found on his clothes, whioh he
accounted for by stating that the plow-handle
struck him in the faoe, causing his nose to
bleed. Hit aame it Reyburn. The girl waa
dragged one hundred yards to the creek near
the field in which Ryan waa working. Rev-
burn alleges that he. saw two black men, on
the 35th, hear the place where the brutal
murder was committed. Tho aupposltion is
that an attempt had boen made to perpetrate
a rape upon the body of the child. The mur
der occurred on the 25th ult. An inquest waa
held on .the 26th ovor the body, by Esquire
Speare, of Oxford Borough. . The prisoner had
a nearing before the aame ' magistrate. The
name of the young1 girl waa Susan Emma Kim
ble, daughter of Larew Kimble, of Lower Ox

Trial of the Virginia Insurrectionists,
CHARLESTOWN, VA., October 31.
The argument of the counsel in the case
of John Brown being ooncluded, Mr. Chilton
asked the Court to instruot the jury that if
they believe the prisoner was not a eitlzen of
Virginia, they, can not convict him on the
count of treason, , . . .
The Court declined, saying the Constitu
tion did not give rights and immunities alono,
but also responsibilities. Mr, Chilton asked
another instruction to the effect that the jury
must be satisfied as to the place where the
offense was committed, whether within the
boundaries of Jefferson County, which the
Court granted." A recess for half an hour
was taken, when the iurv earns in wiUi thai
verdict. . . .

the verdict was rendered. The lury find him
guilty of treason, advising conspiracy with
slaves and others to rebel, and of murder in
the first degree. Brown lay down quietly, he
said nothing, and there was no demonstration
of any kind. Mr. Chilton moved an arrest
of judgment, both a account of the errors in
the indictment and errors in the verdict. '
The objection in regard to th indlotment
haa been already atated. The prisoner has
been tried for an offense not appearing on the
record of the Grand . Jury. . The verdlot was
not on each oount separately, but a general
verdiet on the whole indictment. The prisoner

Curious Freak of Nature.
Mr. E. T. Bond, of Livingston County, ex
hibited to us yesterday a vegetable curiosity
whioh instancos the occasional wildness of Nav
tura'a freaks of imitation, the most singularly
of anything that we ever witnessed; 1 1t was a
perfect model of a human hand Bad arm below
the elbow, oast if we may use the expression
-In corn eob. It was simply aa " ear? of the
Indian staple, from which the kernols had
been romoved, leaving an infantile hand and
arm, somewhat pook marked In appearance,
from the indentions of the grain thatgloved it,
but perfect in shape, as though, a soulpture had
wrought it. The exaotnees of the imitation
will not be eonooivod, except by those who
have seen it. With the exception of tho fingers
to whioh the fteaky Cdame" coold not pos
sibly, with the olumsieet material she used, give
quite due length and Slendernest there was
nothing for the artist to take exception to,
The thumb waa fashioned and set preoisely as
it should bo, the hollow of the palm was ex
act, the wrist was flattened . and tho arm
rounded, as a sculptor would have dona it. and
to all its lines and proportions there was not
the slightest deviation from the human model.
It was certainly the strangest Imm naturae
that wo ever expect to aee. It has been ex
tensively shown, in a private way, in various
parts of the country, and has everywhere ex
cited the utmost wonder and Interest. ' It seems
to every one impossible , to asorihe it to
" chance ;" a oause appears to be almost an
unquestionable necessity of a consequence so
definite ; and the theories it has provoked aro
as curious as Itself. Botton Ejpretty v' ''

rThe editor of the Louisville Journal hat
been the occasion of a blunder as amusing as
any of his own witticisms. The London Boole
teller, a monthly organ of the publishing trade,
commenting on a list of American announce
ments, says ; "We observe a book announced
on an almost forgotten subject, Prentioiana.
Mrs. Ellis may be reminded by this that the
'prenticot of England have never yet been the
