DEATH WARRANT OF JESUS CHRIST.
Of the many interesting relics and fragments of antiquity
which have been brought to light by the persevering re

AmtEST of a New Hampshire M. C. The Wash
ington correspondent of the Concord Democrat re
lates the following incident:
"Maj. Gen. Samuel G. Chase is well known in
your vicinity. It was but a few mornings ago that
an M. C. was roused from his slumbers to accom
pany an officer before tho magistrate. 'Is your
name Peaslee ?' asked the catchpole, as that aston
ished gentleman ver' cautiously opened the door.
'If so I am to arrest you.' The M. C, perhaps,
thinking that General Scott or Mr. Fillmore had
achieved a 'coup cf ctat,' asked to see the writ
'Oh 1' said he, seeing through it directly, 'he is a
crazy man.' 'No matter for that,' said the officer,
'I know nothing about it; I must do my duty.'
And so, after reluctantly allowing the M. C. to
swallow his breakfast, ho was taken before the ma
gistrate on the charge of felony, for wrongfully
holding certain properties in that corporato body
known as the Concord Bailroad. Messrs. Hale and
Norris soon appeared and testified to the lunacy of
Chase, who is here in constant attendance on the
Supreme Uourt, ana who so successfully imposed

THE PHILADELPHIA TRAGEDY".
While young Spring was undergoing his exami
nation, his manner was modest, intelligent, and re
spectful throughout, and he endured the test to his
feelings with heroic fortitude. When the district
attorney was about to ask him if he had a hand in
the murder, Mr. Becd said: "Arthur, 1 am now
going to ask you a question, and I want you to an
swer it truthfully. Did you assist in committing
the murder?" The lad replied, in a manner evi
dently filled with emotion and truthfulness "IsTo,
sir, I did not"
While the prisoner was in conversation with one
of the officers yesterday, he was asked "what was
his belief? Whether he believed in a future state
of rewards and punishments?" Ho replied: "Yes,
I do." Ho wa3 then asked. "What he thought
would be his lot after death?'' He replied: "1 will
go right up into heaven; I am aware that nobody
can effect this but God; but Priest Sorin can inter
cede and pray for me."
He was taken out of tho court-room last night in
the same manner as the night before, by the mar
shal's officers, without any difficulty occuring.
We were informed that some of the crowd re
mained around the court-room until 12 o'clock last
night, and a few all night. At G o'clock this morn
ing they had begun to assemble. Many of the
crowd endure both hunger and thirst lor the entire
day, rather than depart to their homes and lose the .
gratification of gossiping about the matter. Ex
citement answers, for th.s time, instead of food.

The telegraph has already advised us of the con
viction of Spring. The prisoner's counsel urged him
to confess his guilt, warning him that his case was
hopeless, as there was no testimony to rebut the
evidence against him. Spring still asserted his in
nocence, and strove to fix the guilt upon his own
son, who was the mam witness against the father.
Toward the close of tho trial the hardened murderer
expressed himself ready to be hung, and, when the
verdict was declared, manifested crreat indifffimnrp
