was driving up to Clay'.s houc for the

Mrs. Clay wns all eye to tho

of, until found by loving fiieiids
about three o'clock on tho following
morning. Clay camo to this place
early in the night and related what he
had done in as cool mid nonchalant
manner as though he had merely cut
the throat of a bog, instead of having
lavceiatcd nnd loin the delicate fhh of
his beautiful and cultivated neiee.
This sang fioid he has maintained to
the moment, and will detail to
any one his bloody act. Ho told Col.
V. 1). Young, bi.s attorney, that he
know his victim wax dead, for he paw
her fall m her face and gasp out her
last breath. That lu knew a mob
would hang hint, and that he had but
ono twpien to make of him and that

have killed bis wife and other incmbeis
of the family. This statement has
been fully corroborated by bis actions

been sonu! talk of insanity, but tbo;e
who know this tiuuatiiral mosMer best,
