i wit eighteen months since, aeung "man
.fnnrcity. named Joseph F
jjiown around' town, fc'awe Acquainted with '
, Deautiful ntd talerrted daughter of Mr. j
u . -
George League, a gebtlenia-E lo?ig known and
highly respected in our ct; mm unity, as a com
;ion broker. Miss Roaalba League, the 1-
. t0 bcf. reference is made, wa3, at the time, -
tuehei to the choir of one of our churches in
.;.in;tvor luKimoTe street, ana numoers oi
persens wended their way thither every Sunday
to listen to her Binging, which all who heard it
pronounced almost unequalled fot melody and
compass. Creamer, as we stated, became ac
nftinted with her, and paid to her marked at
tention usual from a man toward a lady whom
be inters to make his wife. The young lady,
herself, loved him dearly not. wisely, but too
well and the consequence was, mat alter ne
had been visiting her some eight or tea months,
her friends noticed, a change in her and anx
ious maternal inquiries elicited the fact that she
vas aVout to become a mother, without having
undergone the ceremony that would make her a
Of course the discovery caused the liveliest
emotion in the family, the members of which
bad always hitherto maintained an unsullied
reputation- The father of Miss League at once
waited pon the seducer of his daughter, and
demanded of him the only reparation in his
power to his injured child to marry her. This
be refused to do, alleging that he was a minor,
tnd therefore incompetent to marry without his
father's consent, at the same time referring him
to his father as the most suitable j ersou to be
consulted in the premises. Of course this was
merely prevarication, and attempt to escape from
doing justice to his victim. A short time after
this the father of the young lady induced Crea
mer to go to the house and see Kosalba, she be
ing desirous of having an interview with him.
When he had arrived at the house, a preacher
was in waiting, the license prepared, and every
thing in readiness to celebrate the marriage cer
emony, which the friends and relations of the
Udj's family had determined should take place
at that time, even if threats and force had to
be resorted to.
The question was then put to Creamer, by
the father, "Will you marry my daughter," to
which he again evaded a direct answer by a ref
erence to his father. Mr. League now became
very much excited and enraged, and pointing a
pistol at the ruiner of the peace of his family,
threatened to shoot him, if he did not at once
marry his daughter, but Creamer steadly refu
ted, and finally was suffered to depart on a
promise that he would do justice to the lady at
some future time. He continued to visit the
house until after the child was born, professing
a determination to marry her as soon as he be
came twenty-one years of age. While this pro
mise was hanging over, he was paying his ad
dresses to another lady, the daughter, of a
highly respected citizen of Baltimore, still how
ever, regularly visiting Miss League, and ma
lting no avowal of his determination to break
his engagement with her.
On last Saturday week, he eloped with the
young lady mentioned they being married here
on Saturday morning, and starting for Phila
delphia in the afternoon train. They did not
get off, however, without consideral difficulty,
the family of Miss League having by some
means become apprised of what was going oa,
although not to its full extent they only sup
posing that he was geing off to be married, not
knowing that he was actually married at the
time. Mrs. League and other members of her
family were at the depot, and attempted to get to
the bride, but by some means they were put up
on a wrong scent, aid the bridal party succeed
ed in getting off without the two ladies meeting.
Creamer and his wife remained in Philadelphia
about a week, and then returned to Baltimore,
and took rooms ot the Fountain Hotel, where
they have resided up to the present time. The
father of .the victim of the seducer's arts, know
ing that reparation to his daughter by marriage
fas now out of the question, determined toper
sonally wreak his vengeance upon the destroy
of his family's peace and good name, by shoot
ing him : and accordingly he has been on the
Alert for him ever since his return.
Yesterday morning, about hall-past seven o'
t'ock, he stationed himself at the Mechanic's
Bunk corner, opposite Barnum's Hotel, armed
with a double barreled gun, to await for his in
wnaea victim. A few minutes after Creamer
came along down Fayette street, and passed
him. When he had got about ten yards off, the
venger raised his gun and taking deliberate
im, fired. The barrel was loaded with buck
hot, one of which passed through Creamer's
'Pparel, and after inflicting a flesh wound on
the lower part of the breast bone, glanced along
the margin of the ribs, and passed out without
inflicting any further injury. The second shot
struck a revolver which Creamer had in a side
Immediately after this dischatge, the trigger
j sec,jn,l barrel was cocked, and the gun
eled, but Creamer at the moment, threw him
T before 8ome ladies, who were passing at
e time, and thus gave time to some citizens to

. Horrible Trritlyv
A horrible .tragedy 'occurred at the United
States Arsenal, yesterday morning. Waiter
Richardson, a lad aged about fourteen years, a
son ef Mr. John H. Richardson, a clerk m the
Arsena?, was mortally wo-anded by a shot fcred
from a musket, in the bands of his step-mother,
under the -following circumstances : The boy
wfes very ohstinatend hard to govern, causing
great trouble to his parents, particularly to his
step-mother. Owing to this fact, his father told
the mother that ne would load a musket with
powder, and that she might frighten the boy
with it if he refvraed to 'obey her. The father
loaded the' musket with . powder, and told her
where he had placed it, but subsequently, with
the intention of shooting a dog, he placed in the
musket an additional heavy charge of quail shot,
forgetting at the same time to inform Mrs. R. of
the change in the condition of the gun. On
Thursday evening, a disagreement occurred be
tween the mother and lad, . during which, the
boy threw a sharp piece of coal at his step moth
er which cut her cheek badly ; she then put him
out of doors. Mrs. Richardson was very much
enraged at him when she put him out, and made
a threatening expression to him. He did not
return to the house until yesterday morning
and when she saw him approaching, she took
the musket, and with the intention of intimida
ting him, snapped the gun, which did not go off,
as it was not capped. She went into the house,
got a cap, and returned, when 6he rested the gun
ver a fence and fired. The lad'dropped to the j dispose of on the most reasonable terms. Ther
ground, and when Mrs. Richardson seen this, : have aso on hands a large stock of cloths, cas
she dropped the gun and screamed for help, and ! fimcres and Testings, which they are preparel
ran to the boy. His sister came out, and to-
gether they carried the lad into the house, when
they applied restoratives to him, but without
any effect. Doctor Shields -was sent for, but the
boy was too far gone, and died about 20 minutes
after the Doctor's arrival.
The.shot took effect in the bowels and left side j
and one hundred and thirty seven shots entered
the body. There were many wounds in the
thigh : The two shots which were the immedi
ate cause of his death, pierced the left external
illeac artery, from which he bled to death.
Twenty-four shots were extracted from hi3 bow
els, and the hip and thigh were mangled in a
At twelve o'clock Mr. Coroner Arthurs was
called upon to hld an inquest, and Dr. Shields
hehl a post mortem examination of the body.
After the examination of the father of the lad,
his two sisters, and the doctor, who were the
principal witnessess, the jury returned a verdict
"that the said Walter Richardson came to his
death from the effects uf a gun shot wound ; and
that the shot was fired by Hester Richardson, his
Mrs. Richardson was committed to prison by
Coroner Arthurs for a further hearing.
The above statement is gleaned from the evi
dence before the jury and will be found correct.
The affair resulted from a misunderstanding,
but at the same time great blame is attached to
the parties concerned in the lamentable tragedy.
lVe refrain from publishing anything not strict
ly connected with the matter, for the reason that
it will undergo a judicial examination, and any
thing calculated to prejudice the mind of the
public would be uncalled for and wrong. Pitta.

The Norfolk Beacon says : "The officers of
the U. S. Navy and of the Marine Corps on
this station, gave a splendid entertainment on
Friday evening, on board the magnificent U. S.
ship Pennsylvania, to the officers of the Dutch
frigate Prince of Orange. The ship was most
beautifully decorated, the main deck of one
hundred and fifty feet in length, having been
tastefully arranged for a ball room. A beauti
ful canopy was madeby intertwining the Russi
an, Dutch and American flags, the latter being
placed in juxta-position, aud the flags of other
nations. Stacks of muskets filled with caudles,
and numerous chandeliers, shed a brilliant light
on the scene. The whole arrangements were
admirably made. The party of ladies and
gentleman from Norfolk and Portsmouth and
the vicinity and from Fortress Monroe, numbered
some five hundred, and a more brilliant scene is
rarely presented than that exhibited on this oc
casion. The beautiful faces, graceful and ele
gant forms of the ladies, who never looked love
lier, the handsome and glittering uniforms of
the two Navies, and of the U. S. Army, with
the dresses of citizens interspersed, made, as
they moved through the mazes of the dance to
the fine band of the Pennsylvania, a scene of
KoKHuth's Speech at Bunker
The following is the opening part of Kossuth's
speech recently delivered at Dunktr Hill :
'My voice shrinks from the task to mingle
with the awful pathos of that majestic orator,
pointing to the Monument, silent like the
grave, yet melodious like the song of immortal
ity upon the lips of Cherubim a senseless, cold
granite, ond yet warm with inspiration, like a
a patriot's heart immovable like the past, and
yet stirring like the future, which never stops ;
it looks like a prophet and speaks like an ora
cle. And thus it speaks :
" 'The day I commemorate is the rod with
which the Jtand of the Lord has opened the well
of Liberty. Its waters will flow ; every new
drop of martyr-blood will increase the tide.
Despots may dam its flood, but never stop it.
The higher the dam, the higher the tide ; it
will overflow or break through bow, adore, and
"Such are the words which come to my ears'
and I bow, I adore, I hope."
