'PRNPARATIONS FOR TIE EXECUTION.
The preparations for proceeding
to the prison yard were completed
withih a few minutes o' 11 o'cloel,.
and the various official bodies formied
in line, and awaited the comting of
the prisoner in.the zourt-yard, with.
in the northern gate. At 11 o'clock
the prisoner entered the yard, and
the processiou commenced its solemn

Upon the conclusion of the hymn.
the Rev. Mr. Strect, thus addressed
him:
Aithir Spring, you have been
convicted and sentunced to death for
the murder of Ilownra Shaw and
El!en Lynch, and the execution of
that senterice is now about to take
place. We havo not ceased to wart,
you of youir fate .nd to iUducu you
to repent and msake your peace with
God. I now asi you, in the pres

you will shortly stand, are you guilty

Prisoner--No sir! no sir!
Mr. Street -The Grand Jury
have also by their presentment,
charged you with the murder of Mr.
Rink. Are you guilty or not guilty
of that crnre.?
Prisioner-No sir. I never saw
the nan in my life.
Mr. Strcet--1 have still anoth-r
and last question to ask you. Before
God, is your s'o, Arthur $prinag,
entirely clear o.f the murdler of Mrs.
Shaw andu Mrs. Lynch.
Prisoimr--I believe he is. He

At this response there was a gen.
era' g~oan, from the spee;mtors, which
was, ntowever, but momentary.
Mr. Street then said, 'May God
have mercy upon your soul.'
Al! upon the seaffold then kneeled,
and~ the Re v. Mr. Kenisil prayed inI
the most fervent manner.
At the coniclusiona, thet prisaoner
spoke a few words to Mr. Street,
and that gentleman was about to re
peat it. when~m the sherifi' interp.osed
and told the prisoner to speak him
self.
Hie then said that he went to bed
on the night of the murder at 7
o'clock, and he never knew anything
of it until told by the officers.
The questian was agam asked
him, -Is your son inniocent?' and
lie replied:
'My son is entirely innocent of
blond!'
Mr. Alexander here exclaimed:
'Let this go throughout the land!'
The revereund gentlemen then left
the gallows, after shaking hands with
the prisoner.
The executioner arranged the
knot and drew the cap Qver Yus -face,
and the sheriff shaving lofte him, the
'props were retnoved from beneath
the platformi, and: at a quarter after

Progress of Muakind.
The inimense strides. in progress
which civilized men have made within
the last two centuries, are really in
credible, until the subject im thought

Survives a household book, kept by
One of the great Dukes of Northum
berland, which leaves no doubt on this
subject. From that volume we learn

herrings, dined usually on boied beef,

liubeliold furiture of carpets, sofas,
or heir mattresses. -
In the Boston leiters, written about
the middle of the 16th dentury, we
have further evidence of the almost in

ofNo'folk of that. day, one of the great,
eat of Engli 1i nublemen, *vas often inl

while persons of less exalted rank had
frequently to submiit to the greatest
privations fur want of a fiw shillings;
