discovered that the murderer Foster
was a minion of Tammany, and pre

The law has taken its unimpeded
course, and Foster will bo hung, as he
deserves to be. But the moral organ
ists will not make any retraction of the
libels they have uttered, albeit thus
promptly branded ns falsehoods. Their
object is to blacken the fame of a Dem

country, and for that purpose an wire
tractcd slander is as good as an attested
fact. Their millions of country
readers will continue to revel in the
notion that Democratic New York is a
sink of unrestrained crime, and that
J)cmocr.iey is but another name for
battle, murder and sudden death. In
order to make the caso of Foster con
tribute still further to enforcement of
this great moral idea, the Tribune, will
discover that he was, after all, a politi

The work of dissecting ItullotPs head
was so far completed this mornini; as to

tain tho weight ot Ills brain. J no brain
weighed flfly-nino ounces, being nino and
n half or ten ounces heavier than the nvo-
rago weight. Tho heaviest brain over
woighod was that of Cuvier, tho French
naturalist, which is given by somo author
ities and some at sixty-four ouncos. The
brain of Danlul Webster (partly estimated
on account of a portion being destroyed
by disease) weighed sixty-four ounces.
Tho brain of Abercrorablo of Scotland
weighed slxty-flvo ounces. Tho average
weight of aman's brain is about nfty ounces
the maximum weight slxty-flvo (Cuvler's),
and tho minimum (idiots) twenty ounces.
As nn averaco tho lower portion of tho
brain (corebellum) is to the upper portion
of the (cerebrem) as one is to eight and
eight-tenths. Tho lower, bruto portion, of
RullolTs bruin and the mechanical powers
aro unusnally large. 'Tho upper portion
of the brain, which directs tho higher
moral and roligious sentiments, was very
deficient in Rulloff. In tho formation ot
his brain Rulloff was a ferocious animal,
and so fur as disposition could rcllovo him
from responsibility ho was not strictly re

that ho thought hlnuolf not a vory bad

Tho usual thickness of a man's skull is less
than one-fourth of on Inch.
Rulloffs hoad was ononcd In tho usual
way, by parting tho scalp ovor tho top of
tho head, from one car to the other, and
sawing off tho top. The surgeons who per

for, Is considered quite doubtful.
Of course tho'main topic of conversation
What at first seemed n Peoria joke, did
beforo tho adjournment of tho regular ses
sion assume sufficient proportions to in
juriously delay and provent necessary leg
islation, to such an cxteilt that the call for
tho present session was doomed necessary.
And even now, although it docs not seem
likely that tho friends of tho rcmovul of
tho Stato capital havo sufficient strength
to accomplish this object, yet thoy still
havo votes enough to make tho passago
of tho appropriation bill doubtful.
. Tho bill will undoubtedly pass tho Sen
ate, but no voto taken in tho houso has
yet indicated more than oighty-thrco votes
in that branch favornblo to tbo bill. As
tho constitution requires a majority of nil
tho members elect to pass any bill, cighty
nino votes aro necessary, and from what
quarter tho other six arc to como is not
yet definitely known. Thoro nro still
twenty-tivo or thirty absentees and it is
ccrtuinlv moro thui possiblo that enough
can bo brought in who nro favornblo to
the continunnco of tho work on tho Stuto
house to give tho required six, but the dif
ficulty is that whilo these aro being
brourht, others pressed by their
own private uuuirs, absent ttiem-
selves und nothing. U gained. At
this season of tho year it Is extremely
difficult to druw farmers from their har
vests, nnd lawyers from their courts. Tho
Senate is not o much controlled by local
feeling, and tho Peoria movement has
mado less impression on its members
Theru is n little uolncidenco which is by
somo evil-minded people reviewed. in tho
light nf 11 bargain nnd stile, but I urn sure
thnt tho renders of tho Hui.ktin have too
much confidenco in the parties to tolornto
any such idea. Tho Governor in tho call

It now transpires that all tho Cook county
SciiHtors, by whom tho park question is
especially potted, nro fitvorablo to tho ap

Governor and tho four Cook countySena

The Governor's message takes strong
ground in favor of tho oppropriation, and
argues tho ducstion at considerable length,
and with usual clearness and ability. Ho
very justly deprecates tho practice of sell

Murder na a Fine nrt.
Tho caso of tho poisoning of Ruth by
tliu doctor who loved Ruth's wife, and who
had previously poisoned his own on that
account, is ono of thoso examples of tho
facilities for committing murder on
scientific principles, which unhappily, aro
witbiu tho rcacu of all who desiro to get
rid or incovenicnt relatives or dangerous
enemies. In such cases unprincipled
physicians,liko Mcddlicot, may bo effectivo

Tho ensoof Ruth is n very startling
ono. His wife, whom ho had taken from
former husband, was unprincpllod and
winnincr. thouch not handsome. Sho had
captured Mcddlicot, n married physician,
in Lawronco, Kansas, whore sho had gono
to reside with her husband. Tho passion

his captivatlon by .Mrs. Ruth, becamo the
subject 01 nis proiessionni ministrations,
and died, l.utu, wiiuo spunuing a picas
ant evening with tho onamored physician,
availed himself of tho medical services of
of his companion, nnd UUowifO died. Tho
Kansas pcoplo thought tho death of Mrs.
Mcddlicot suspicious. They thought
thnt of Ruth moro so. Thoy had becomo

to investigate tho latter; nnd facts wero
elicited which may, wo hopo, add arothor

This caso shows what deadly deeds
may bo accomplished by a doctor of
unscrupulous character, instigated by a
woman of bad missions, und how easy it
is to commit murders through tho accnev
of "alkaloids," skillfully ndminlstored.
This is ono of tho fow instances which
