vva being put in position, Jefferson, who
was biuiua Ln a rocking chair in the cor
ridor opposite his crll, guarded by Depu
ty Sheriffs, cpuld hear the sound of the
carpenters' hammers. lie did not seem
in the least disturbed, but puffed away at
hisciar. When a plank fell on the stone:
flawing, he started and remarked to his
kei-per: "The watflKld Is bclug erected. :
Tho :ud Is near. I am prepared."
He retired at 11 :.'!0 Wednesday uiuht
and blept soundly until seven' yesterday

remark ed :
"The time is short. I hear tbe uois
tony are making putting up the gallows.
It won't be long before my trouMcs are
over. 1 wouid rather die tbau be cou
fjued iu prison for six or seven years.
Haugfng is not the kind of death I would
prefer ; ' but I cau uot have my way, 1 om
Uowtivertiecortciicd to my fate, f com
mitted a grievous crime against God and
u:iu, i bopo 1 am forgiven. During the
past tliree days I buvo felt that I bave
Lxea fully converted. I torsive all."
; In the course of tbe day Jefferson re
quested that a Mrs. Harris, nn aged ne
gress, who has been kind to him, should
be sent for. A messenger was sent to her
home, and within an hour she was at the
jail. She had an affecting Interview with
tSe prisoner. He bore up bravely, and
b-er tears auJ shrieks as she was parting
with him forever, did nut brini: a tear to
:bis eyes. His sweetheart, Anna Jackson,
bo expressed a wish to see. She has
been married since his arrest, and her
husbrtiid vould not permit her to call
upon tho 'murderer. When Juffersoii was
iilCormed that his sweetheart would not
b( allowed to visit biio, hu almost broke
down, Ho mastered his cmotiou, and
turning to. his keepers, said:
"It is, perhaps, better that she did not .
come. I forgive her." '
: I.nte in the afternoon two negroes ,
named King and White, and tho colored'
evangelist, Miss Wallace,. were admitted
to the corridor. Jefferson said that he .
was glad to see them. There was very'

of Mr. Henry Porter, Irrwhrch were Mr,
and Mrs. Porter, Miss Standlsh, M&
Chubbuck.atid two little jjirls, whom Uiiy
were 'educating, named Huttle Largo undji
Mary Hanscy. They 11 red several times
through tho windows, demanding $100.
This dejnand was refused, and the des
peradoes woiild let none of tho family lc(ivo
the house. Alter demanding the money
several times, they set fire to the house
by saturating a bed with coal oil aud ig
niting It. They had bound tho old man
and treated him very roughly to make
him tell where his money was. After the
house was fired the Inties carried their
trunks out, and tho fiends rilled them of
family trinkets, jewelry and other val
uables. Oim of tno little girls left tho
house with a bundle, and Ashbury Hughes
stoned her, took tho bundle from
her und drove her back into
tho burning house. George Smith
banged on tbe piano while tho tire was
raging, shouting out: "I'm playing
Uonaparte's ret. eat." The bouse was
burned to the around, the old gentleniau
and tbe ladies, after many fruitless at
tempts, escapiti'j. The fiends got no
money. What there was In tho house at
the time was carried off by Mrs. Chub
buck, who, alter wauderlug about the
mountains for several days, found a path
which led her to Carpeuter, her shoes
worn out and her feet bleeding.
THE ( lll.MlN.tl.S.
George Smith was born lu Jackson
County, Alabama, and was about thirty.
Ha was ignorant and brutish, and had
the reputation of being very cruel. ; He
was accused of murdering one man in
Dade County, Georgia, and one in Teu
nessee. He had beioru his capture, after
this burning, been living iu adultery with
Lizzie McKinney, und hid gone to Jasper
to obtain a license t-j marry her, which
led to his capture.
Tho Hughes boys wero twenty and
twenty-one years old respectively. They
had low foreheads aud were miserablo
specimens of humanity. They were
'icnnessecaiis and wins of a father who. Is
well thought of where he lives. The old
father was present during their trial, and
by his unaffected anxiety excited great
sympathy. Mr, l'oru-r, the .owner
ol tho house burned, came from
Mew Kcglaud to ' .Sand Mountain,
Jckf.ou County, about two years
ap.j for his healtli, and built
a handsome residence. He had a
large and valuable library and had bis
bouse furnished in fine style. This they,
cut and broke up while they wore search
ing for money. Old Mr. Porter died
ffoiu exposure and bad treatment re
ceived at their hands, and all thj family
kid, w ith tbe exception of a little money,
was lost and a happy home left lu ruins.
Since the burning, and alter the death of
her husband, Mrs. lVrter has entirely
lost her sight.

Ho said: "As I cut her tho
blood spurted up as high as my head, aud

stains formed the chief circumstantial
ovidenco which fixed tho crime upon him.
He then dragged the body into a thicket

AcjuBtin? the Claims for and Against
tho Collapsed Bank.
Ni:w Yoi:k, August 1. Walter S. John
ston, receiver of the Marine Bank, has
addressed a letter to Geo. F. Baker, Pres
ident of the 1-irst National Bank, on the
subject of the latter's claim to a prefer
ence to the amount of 215,000 for tho
bogus cheek drawu by Ferdinand Ward
ou the Firt National and deposited lntho
Marine. Mr. Johnstou denies the exist
ence of any claim for preferences and
goes Into au elaborate examluatiou of the
biw and facts in the case, iu which ho
holds the Clearlng-houso responsible for
the amount. In conclusion, Mr, John
ston suggests what ought to bo done as
' 1. Tho Clearing House should at
once proceed to enforce section thirteen
of its constitution, taking the accounts of
the debtor and creditor banks as they
stood that corning, and call on the banks
with balances against the .Marine Bank
on the .exchanges of that day, to pay in
under the rule $ 770,003.17, the true
balanco of tho Marine Bank.
2. Tho Clearing-house then should re
fund to the Marine Bank 9355,003.1 7 ille
gally taken from its assets after the fail
ure. The remaining .(215,0(j0 would be
paid to tho First National Bauk. Tho
banks paying the $;70,oX;J. 17 would be
come, under the rulo, creditors for that
amouut against the Mariue Bank. This
places every one coucerued whero they
would bavo boon if the Marine Bauk funds
had uot been locked up by law, aud If the
constitution of the Clearlug-house had
been carried out.
WALTER S. JOHNSTON", '
receiver of the Marino National Bank and
President of the First National Bank, has
transmitted a copy of Mr. Johnstou's let
ter to the Clearing-house and to each
member thereof, requesting the payment
01 the sum of $215,000 aud Interest.
