DEATH OF ALF. BURNETT.
Tho Votoran Elocutionist, Actor
and Contortionist Succumbs
Lutercsting Rominiscenes Suggested by
His Death at this Time of Riot
How the Elder Burnett Defended His
Home and His Life Against an
Angry Pro-Slavery Mob.
Cincinnati, 0., April 4. Alt Burnett,
the veteran actor of Cincinnati, died ut
four o'clock this moriiini;, of apoplexy,
lie was Illling an engagement at the
museum, und appeared as usual last
Tin- death of the veteran elocutionist
and contortionist jut at this time of riot
und bloodshed, suests an interestm;;
reminiscence. liming the early days of
the Abolition party, Alf. Burnett's
father, who was a staunch, and true
member of the devoted brother
hood, was engaged In the bakery and con
fectionery business in Cincinnati, aud the
spirit of ruffainisin which cost the martyr
I.ovejoy his life on the river's brink at
Alton was also rampant at Cin
cinnati. The older Burnett was pointed
out us a special mark of
hated by those who believed in the divine
right of human slavery, and the feeling of
resentment against so fearless an advo
cate of liberty waxed hotter and hotter,
until it culminated in the gathering of an
infuriated mob, raised for the express
purpose of taking the hated abolitionist
out and hanging him. The crowd moved
noisily onward toward the confectionery
Mor', gathering strength and num
bers at every step until it swelled
to thousands. Arriving at Mr. Bur
nett's pla-c, they loudly demanded
that he come forth, w hile a few, bolder
than their fellows, began an assault on
the heavy front doors.
The old gentleman, who was within,
becoming indignant at such treatment,
arose und went to the door, which
he opnifd and stepped outide. Ilis as
pillunts falling back before his giant
strength and blazing eye, were for a mo
ment awed into silence. With a knowl
edge of men no less remarkable than
his firmness in dealings with them,
he seized his opportunity, and, stamp
ing his fot vehemently, Indignantly
demanded what so great an army of
bullies and cowards meant In coming
against one unarmed man. lie shamed
them fur their cowardice, ridiculed
them for their ignorance, and eluded
the in for their antagonism to human
liberty; aud when he had them com
pletely cowed he demanded that they be
men, and if they wanted to kill him to
do it as men. "Choose," said the old pa
triarch, " one, two, three choose
half a dozen of your best men, and let them
come and take me, and" said he, laying
aside his coat, "if they do, I nor mine
v ill ever eomplaiu. If they don't, theu
lu Heaven's name let me live among you
in peace and enjoy my opinions as you
claim the right to enjoy yours."
By the time he ceased speaking, the
angry mob had half melted away, and as
he paused for a reply, their fellows lost
no time in following their example.
A few such men as the elder Burnett at
the indignation meeting in Cincinnati last
week would have prevented the disas
trous results ensuing, and saved the city
the disgrace and loss of the worst riot
know n to our annals.
AN KCCKNTKK: TKAMP,
How an Amiable Young Lady was Re
warded for a Kind Action.
Lot is iu.K, Ky., April 4. Miss Fan
nie (i. Porter, daughter of Mrs. Porter,
I'd.-t mistress at Bussellville, Ky., was
married at Ocala, Fla., March 2i', to one
Clem. Dickey, of Colorado. There is
ijuite a romance in Miss Porter's life.
iver a year ago, late in the evening, she
was walking with some young lady
friends, when an old gray-haired, ragged
tramp approached the party. Her com
panions screamed and ran away, but she
walked leisurely along, aud re
turned his salutation The next
day, and for several days after
ward, the tramp took up a position
in front of the Post-ollice and spent hours
watching Miss Porter. Finally he came
to the window where she was writingand
spoke. She responded pleasantly, "and,
taking courage from her courtesy ,"the old
man aked her name. "Please write it
out for inc." he'asked. She did so, and
lie placed the sheet of paper away in his
pocket. "You are a good girl and a
mighty pretty one, too," the old man said;
"and I like you. Don't you know that you
are the only person that has treated me
with any kindness for years. They say I
am old and crazy, but don't you believe
'em. I have got lots of money, and I am
going to leave it all to you." Miss Por
ter's mother coming in at this point he
repeated his remarks to her, and shaking
hinds with both ladies, left. Time
passed on. The old fellow had disap
leared, and no one thought about him.
A few months ago the Sheriff of Logan
County, Miss Porter's home, received a
letter from a certain town iu Kentucky.
The letter said that a tramp was found
dying in the woods ucar there; that he
had been taken in and cared for; that a
letter was found iu his pocket which ex
plained that money sulllcient to pay his
doctor's bill and burial expenses would be
found hid in his clothes. The sheet of
paper containing Miss Porter's name was
also found, and with it Instructions to
send all the papers to her; also, that ho
had so many thousand dollars iu a bank
in Tennessee, naming the town and
bank, and that it was his wish that
Miss Porter should accept it. Miss
Porter, a short while ago, received a let
ter offering her $:!,000 for her Interest
in the old man's estate If she would for
feit all claim to it. The offer was not
accepted, and so the affair rests for
A Case for Solomon.
Nkw Yokk, April 4. The curious
Downing case examination was continued
to-day before Referee Wilkes. This is the
case where Mrs. Savillar' Downing claims
that she was married to Forrest S. Down
ing; that she had a boy baby; that she
put It in the care of Mrs. Martha Ilannl
ty; that she was told that her boy baby
had died; that she caused the body to bo
exhumed aud found it to be that of a girl
baby. She thinks that a child now in Mrs.
Ilaunity's charge is her baby, and she de
mands its custody on a writ of habeas
corpus. Mrs. llanulty says tho child
Is Curios Wilson the son of a woman who
was Known as Kmma Wilson and Kmma
De.ufra. The baby was in court yester
day, and when Mrs.' Downlng's counsel
took It from its nurse and to a window to
search for a birthmark the rosy-cheeked,
lair-haired two-year-old yelled lustily.
Mrs. Downing, who has a pretty, pleas
ing face, looked eagerly and anxiously
ufter the crying child. She was the llrst
witness. She also looked eagerly at a
well-dressed, handsome, beardless young
man, apparently eighteen years old. This
was Forrest S. Downing, son of Silas
Downing of Collins, Downing & Co.,
Broadway woolen merchants.
"Don't you think the baby looks like
him'!" she asked her lawyer In a whisper.
She said on examination that she
thought the child was her's because It
was light-haired, because it had a pecul
iar motion of the hand like Mr. Downing
and because It looked like him. She said
she was a dressmaker when she llrst met
him, ami wanted to be an actress. "I
was young and foolish then," she said.
She said she was now twenty years old.
Downing, being sworn, sakl Savillar
was not his wife; that his father had paid
all the funeral expenses of the dead baby.
Mrs. Frederika Dernier testified that
the child lu court, know n as Carlos Wil
son, was born iu her house, May 8, lH-jg,
and that Mrs. Downing's child was boru
August 2U, 1SS2.
The case was not concluded. The
young mother looked sadly after the rosy-cheeked
hoy as she weut from the
EFFECT OF THE HIOT,
A Woman Gets Seven Years for Shoot
ing With Intent to Kill.
Cincinnati, (., April 4. The first seu
tencing of prisoners since the riot, took
place to-day in Judge Johnston's Court.
Belle Osborn, colored, convicted of shoot
ing w ith intent to kill, received seven
years. Shu begged most piteouslv
when the sentence was announced,
and the Judge began to say
that as this was a woman he would
modify the sentence, when the prosecu
tor interposed a vigorous protest, saying:
"This woman has been before the Crim
inal Court again and again, aud some
thing must be done to relieve the courts,
if for no other purpose." The Judge
permitted the seutence to remain. The
only other case of homicide, was that of
John Mtirtah, who pleaded to man
slaughter. It appeared that he struck
a mau with his H.-t, aud the plea was
accepted, and the sentence of five years

Chicago, III., April 4. The Times
rays: At about one o'clock, yesterday, the
Harrison street patrol wagon passed
along Wabash avenue at a lively rate of
speed, and seated on Us bare seats were
two omen and two men under the guar
(liunship of oflicers. They were Miss
Annie Petersen, a well-to-do maiden lady,
whose age she refuses to impart even to
a desk-sergeant at the station. Her sis
ter sat next to her, and two broth
ers named Andrew and Christopher Peter
sen faced the worthy ladles. Their resi
dence is at Xo. 132H Wabash avenue, and
on the first floor of the house Miss Peter
sen conducts a saloon. She leases the
entire building, which Is a three-story
stone structure, aud sub-lets the
upper part. Mrs. M. A. Penfleld, a
respectaole widow, who has two daugh
ters, aged fourteen and six years, rooms
on the second floor. These apartments
she furnishes herself. Yesterday at
about twelve o'clock, as Ollleer Patrick
O'Brien, of the Harrison Street Sta
tion, was passing along the street
In front of No. l;i22 he heard agoniz
ing screams and cries of "Murder!
murder: help:" He ran into the bouse,
and bursting open a door on the
second floor, where the screams seemed
to come from, there fouud a woman
destitute of clothes, lying on the floor,
and two big burly men brutally kicking
her. Two women were egging the men
on with cries and fiendish yells, while two
little g'nls were sobbing and crying in the
bed. M'llii. n drew his club, aud crack
ing one of the brutes over the head com
pelled both to desist. All were placed
under arrest, and then it was learned that
they were the entire Petersen family in
array against poor Mrs. Penfleld. She
was bruised and cut up by their blows
Mrs. Penfleld stated to a Times reporter
that she was in arrears two weeks for
rent, SO in all, and had told MissPetersen
that she would pay up in full that even
ing. She was a dressmaker by trade, and
had some money coming to her for work
done on Michigan avenue. She expected
to collect her bill that day and pay Miss
Petersen, but before she was out of bed
they had come up-stairs, and, pulling her
to the floor, commenced beating her.
They tore all the clothes off her, she al
leges, aud then locked her up in a coal
closet. At noon they took her out and
began pounding her, when her cries at
tracted the attention of the otllcer.
The members of the Petersen family
were booked at tha armory yesterday on
three charges of riot, assault and bat
tery and disorderly conduct. The bail
was placed so high that it is extremely
probable all will languish behind the bars
at the statiou until to-day, when they will
be brought into court. Mrs. Penfleld will
als commence suit in the higher courts
to-day for $10,000 damages.
