h? IS Sunday evening, Joseph
M ok oi I, olaiming to be a Frenchman,
aud with pipers on bia person substan?

charge, against Borne of the party, ol
murder. Three others etcaped arrest
They were brought before Mayor Row?

himself eleatly understood,by direction
of C unmonwealth'? Attorney A T.
Embrey, Piof O Arnaud appeared a?
interpreter for bim. It seem? frim the
Story, as narrated by M-t^oiel, that he
left Washington Friday night in a box
car. On the car were ten tramp?
Somewhere between Alexandria and
C?aantio one of the trains was
killed, three of the party pirtici
piting in the murder, and after
robbiug him of IS cent? that he had In
hi? picket, threw the lifeless body "in
the nvr. " Miguiel identified Oliver ?I
the one who choked the unknown
tramp to death, and Sullivan and Mam
men a? accomplices, they having
stamped up m the body after the chok?
ing and assis'ed in throwing it from
the cu into the water.
The others were identified as being
on the car that night, but not as taking
any part in th<i alleged murder.
All of the tramps were sworn, and
while they acknowledged in their testi?
mony that they were on the car that
eight and saw Magniel, they knew
m tniug of hi? story, and were satisfied
there was no foundation for it.
Oii-'er, Sullivan and Mammen were
sent to jail for fifteen day? a? vagrants,
daring which time the Fairfax author?
ities will be oommunicated with, and
t*iey will probably make search for the
body of the alleged murdered man, as
It is most likely if the Frenchman's
story be true that the deed wob com?

The Chesapeake Watchman say?:
"Mr T Spicer Curlett, of 'Herrni

a convention by himself, drew up hii
own platform, nominated and endorser
himself as a candidate to represenl
Richmond and Lancaster conntle? it
"The life of the Hon. T. S. Curletl
for the 1 tat few year? ha? been si full
j repose, quiet restfulne??, and in
trospeotion that it would be an un
pard moble act of injustice on the pari
of the people, to take the reclu?e fn pj
hi? b inks, hi? garden and hi? liowen
and ?et him adrift once more in the
whirling, maddening, teething mael
?trom of politio? We regret exceeding?
ly that he lent a willing ear to the
?ngated whispering? of the d??
ni n of nmbiaion, and we beg
that hi? many friend? will dis
?nado him from hi? suicidal policy Hi!
election is a matter of impossibility.
for he renounced hi? allegiance to the
Republican ptrty publicly ?ome time
ago, and he 1? too recent a convert to
the creed of Dean orner to impress it?
adherent? with any belief in hi? ?in
eerily. The Hon. T. S. Curlett wai
wre.-ked on the political ?eos ?omeyear?
ago ond when a kindly wave dashed
him high and dry on the Irvingt n
Beach, prayer? of thankfnines? weut up
that the political waif was at laut
stranded, saved and ?ecladed in 'Her?
mit's Cottage ' '
The Cape Charle? Light ?ay?:
? Hon T Splcer Oorbtt, wbo had
hi? Republican banner flying across the
front of Oape Charles Hotel when he
was 'perspiring' for Congressional hon?
or?, and who afterwards turned over to
the Democratic fold, bos now annonnoed
himself a* an independent candidate
fir the legislature In Richmond and
Lancaster conuties. We wish him the
most cruel defeat it is possible for e
candidate to get. "
The Sonth?ide Sentinel say? :
"I' ?eem? that onr brethren in that
district are hopelessly divided, and we
gravely apprehend the election of Ihe
indrpendent, T S Curlett, best kuown
to fame as a Republican. ' '
