LAST IIOL'ltS OP A SINGLE GENTLEMAN HE
CALMLY MEETS HIS FATE.
Yesterday morning, at 11 o'clock precisely,
an unfortunate' vounsr man, Charles Augus
tus Pipkin, suffered the extreme penalty of
infatuation bv exmutinsr his attachment to
Clara Amelia, in front of the altar railing of
St. Burnaby's Church. ,
HISTORY OF THE CRIMINAL.
All our citizens who were present .at the
pic nic given in Mantua, some two years ago,
will recollect that Augustus was then intro
duced to Clara, and immediately began to
pay her particular attentions. From that
period their intimacy dates, and it was con
tinued until it ended at last in the painful
catastrophe of this morning. -
Poor Pipkin had nearly attained his twenty-eighth
year, but there is every reason to
believe that, had not extreme impecuniosity
prevented, his single life would earlier have
come to an untimely end.
A change for the better, however, occurred
in his circumstances, and Clara's friends
were induced to sanction his addresses, and
thus became accessories to the awful calami
ty which has overthrown him in the hey-day
of his youth.
TIIE LAST HOUItS.
The unhappy young man passed the last
night of his bachelor existence in his solitary
chamber. From Mialf-past eight to ten he
was busily engaged in writing letters. Short
ly after ten, his younger brother, Henry,
knocked at the door, when the doomed man
told him, in a firm voice, to come in."
Upon being asked when he intended to
go to bed, lie replied, " not yet." The ques
tion was then asked him, " how lie thought
he would sleep ;" to which his answer was.
"pretty well." He then expressed a desire
for a cigar and a glass of water, which were
given to him. His brother now demanded
of him if he would " want anything more
that night." He said " nothing," in a lirm
His affectionate relative then rose to take
his leave, when the doomed man consider
ately advised him "to take care of himself."
At precisely one minute after seven the
next morning, the victim rose and promptly
dressed himself. He had self-control enough
to shave without the slightest injury, for not
a single scratch appeared on his chin a ft or
the operation. It would seem that he de
voted more than usual care to his toilette on
this occasion. The wretched man was attir
ed in a light blue frock coat, with frosted
metal buttons, and white waistcoat, and
nankin tro.vsers, with patent leather boots.
Having descended the stairs with a quick
step, he entered the apartment where his
brother ami a few friends were waiting. 1 It?
shook hands cordially with all present, and
on being asked how he had slept, answered.
Very well ;" and to the further demand as
to the state of his mind, he said " he felt
happy." One of the party having suggested
that it would be well to take "something"
before the melancholy ceremony, he exclaim
ed with much emphasis, Decidedly."
Breakfast was accordingly served, and the
poor fellow ate the whole of a roll, a slice of
toast, two sausages, :ind three eggs, washing
the whole down with two large cups of cof
fee. In reply to expressions of astonishment
on the part of the company, he said that " he
never felt better in his life."
Having inquired the time, and ascertained
that it was ten minutes of eleven, he remark
ed that "it would soon be over." His brother
then asked if he could do anything more for
him. when he said he should like to haven
glass of ale. Putting it to hi-t hps. he re
marked, "here's luck," and drank it with
The fatal moment now approaching, he
d.-voted the remainder of his time in dis
tributing among his friends those articles
whicii he would no longer want. To one he
gave his cigar case, to another his tobacco
stopper, and he charged his brother Henry
with the care of his latch-key, with instruc
tions to deliver it to his landlady with due
The clock at length struck eleven, an 1 he
was informed that a cab was at the door.
lie merely said, " I am ready," and was con
ducted to the vehicle. Arriving at the trag
ical spot, a short delay took place, when
they were joined by the lady, with her
friends. Little was said on either side, but
Clara, with customary decorum,, shed teal's.
Pipkin endeavored to preserve composure,
but a slight twitching of his mouth and eye
brows proclaimed his inward agitation. The
victim now walked side by side with Clara,
with a firm step to the altar. He surveyed
the imposing preparations with calmness,
and gazed unmoved on the clergyman, who
waited behind the railing.
The preliminaries being gone through
with, and the prescribed melancholy formal
ities finished, the usual question was put,
" Wilt thou have this woman to be thy wed
'ded wife ?" To which the miserable youth
replied in a distinct voice, "I will." He
then put the fatal ring on Clara's linger, the
hymenial noose was adjusted, and the poor
fellow was launched into matrimony.
The constitutional Union men of Virginia,
speak of holding a State Convention, in Al
exandria, next month. A correspondent in
forms us that nothing definite has yet been
determined on, though he inclines to the
opinion that the meeting will take place, as
most of the leading Union men in the State
have been written to on the subject. Until
Congress marks out some definite line of pol
icy, for the guidance of parties, we do not
see how parties arc to be formed in the
South on any other principles than for or
against the President. Thus far, Congress
has given no encouragement to Union senti
ment in the South, and until it shows a de
termination to do so it can expect to find
very few supporters in this section. Hict

Revenue Stamps may be used indiscriminately

schedule B, except proprietary and playing card
stamps, for which a special use has been provided.
Postage stamps cannot be used in payment of
the duty chargeable on instruments.
It is the duty of the maker of an instrument to
affix and cancel the stamp thereon. If he neglects
to do so, tlie party for whom it is made, may
stamp it before it is used ; and if used after the
30th of July, 1804, and used without a stamp, it
cannot afterwards be effectually stamped. Any
failure upon the part, of the maker of on instru
ment to appropriately stamp it, renders him lia
ble to a penalty of tvo hundred dollars.
Suits are commenced in many States by other
process than writ, viz: summons, warrants, pub
lication, petition, &c, in which case these, us the
original process, severally require stamps.
Writs of scira facias are subject to stamp duty
as original processes.
The jurat of an affidavit, taken before a Justice

strument; that is to say for every sum of five
hundred dollars, ot any fractional part thereof, of
the amount secured by the mortgage, at time of
its assignment there must be affixed a stamp or
stumps, denoting a duty of five cents.
When two or more persons join iu the execution
of an instrument, the stamps to which this instru
ment is liable under the law, may bo affixed and
cancelled by one of the parties.
In conveyances of real estate, the law provides
that the stamp affixed must answer to the value
of the estate on interest conveyed.
No stamp is required on any warrant of attor
ney accompanying a bond or note, when such
bond or note has affixed thereto the stamp or
stamis denoting the dutj' required, and whenever
any bond or note is secured oy mortgage, but one
stamp duty is required on such papers, such
stamp duty being the highest rates required for
such instruments, or cither of them. In such a
case note or memorandum of the value or de
nomination of the stamp affixed should be made
upon the margin or in the acknowledgement of
the instrument which is not stamped.
