The citizens of Paterson appear to be
peculiarly averse to banging a woman, es
pecially such a woman, and the made ex
traordinary etTorts to have Llbbie's
sentence of death commuted to
imprisonment for life. A few
days ugo a curious blunder was committed
by the telegraph, or tho telegraph opera
tor, or some wickedly designing person or
persons unknown to the public by means
of tho telegraph. A disputch was sent to
Patterson that tho girl's sentence had
been commuted, as above suggested.
This intelligence was communicated to
tho prisoner by her attorney, be having
as he supposed ascertained tbat it was re
liable. She received tbo news, and it bad
a happy effect upon her tempor, and de
portment generally. A day or two ufter
Libbie's .death warrant, duly signed, was
forwarded to Patterson, and caused great
distress among tbo citizens, 'ibis sets
forth tbo tact that Libbio Garrabrant mutt
bo hung on the 10th Inst. The
court of pardons of New Jersey
had not acted upon tho caso at all.
There is still somo hope, however, for
that court remains in session until tho 8lh
inst. In the meantime it was thought
best by the friends of the girl not to inform
her of this cruel blunder ot present. She
is, therefore, kept in blissful ignorance of
the death ponulty still bunging over her
uead, and not n word will be said to tier ot
her perilous case until after tbo 8th.
In tbo meantime, tho citizens oi
Paterson, to tbo number of four thousand,
have signed u petition with which tliey
intend to besiego tho court of pardons.
There seems to be littlo doubt that this
array of weight and rospectabillty will,
under tho peculiar circumstances of attack,

AN OLD MAN IN JACKSON COUNTY MUR
DERED UY HIS 8TEF-S0N.
(From th Cnrbondalo New Krn of JMunlay.
Ono of tho most unprovoked and cow
ardly assassinations it has over beon our
lot to chrunlclo occurred on Wednesday
last In Bradley precinct, near what is
known as headquarters, twolvo miles north
west of Murphysboro. Several years ago
Dr. Ucnson, ono of tho oldest rosldonts
of Jackson county, married ft widow
Brown, who had a family of children,
sovoral of thorn fully grown. Honson,
it is said, was not n very kind husband,
and about six weoks since his who separa
ted from him. Henry Brown, a son of
Mrs. Hcnson's, a reckless, dissipated and
bad hearted man, about thirty years of
age, had several quarrols with his step
father, but tho old doctor nover supposed
that llonry boro him any special hostility,
regarding thoir frequont misunderstand
ings as mcro family disputes. It appears,
however, that Brown's animosity was
doopor seated and ho dotormlncd upon ro
vonge. On tho morning of tho 2tith tilt,
ho Invited a friend son of Dr. Dodson
to accompany him to Mr. Demon's
house. Not anticipating any trouble,
young Dodson went with Brown, and ap
proaching Uenson's farm tiny saw tbo old
man plowing in a field. Brown accusod
Uenson of threatening to ''clean out tho
wholo ridgo." This imputation Honson
denied, saying ho was too old a man to
think of such a thing. Brown reiterated
the charge and dcclarod his intention of
settling tho matter. Honson again denied
it, and said ho had but fow moro years to
live and ho had no Intention of endanger
ing oven tnoso fow years by getting up
fusses and talking in such n manner.
Finally, after Brown had cursed him
soundly, Uenson said, " Henry, I never
said so, and whoever says I did tells a
lie." No sooner had the words been spo
ken than Brown drew a revolver and
commenced deliberately firing upon tho
old unarmed man. In vain did the grey
haired victim beseech tho fiend to spuro
bis life, and his appeals to Dodson to in
tetfcreawcre heartrending In tho extreme
Dodson was unarmod, and could only beg
Brown to quit firing. Fivo shots wero
fired, two of them only taking effect; ono
of them entering under tho right arm and
coming out through tho breast, and tho
other piercing the groin. As the second
ball struck hlra uenson leil, and isrown,
clubbing his pistol, sprang upon his
prostrato loe, dealing bim several heavy
blows upon tho head, fracturing his skull.
Uenson lingered untill Saturday morning,
when death put an end to his sufferings.
A warrant was issued for Brown's arrest,
but ho managed to eludo pursuit. It is
said, however, that no determined or
orgunized effort was made to arrest him,
and that his escape is altogether due to the
tbo inefficiency or our otucers. It is also
suid that a despatch was sent to an,otlicer nt
DuQuoin requesting Brown's arrest. The
officer it isallcgod, wus n friend of Brown's
and notified him of his dancer, declining
to make the arrest
Wo hope no efforts will bo left untried
to bring Brown to justice. The murder of
ins step-tather a man of nearlv seventy
years of ago was without tho least pallia
tion ; it was one of tbo most fiendish
crimes ever committed in this stato. Tho
parties who secreted him after ho had com
mutes the murdor, and who connived at
his escape, also deservo severest punish
ment, and wo call upon the next trrand
jury to eeo that thoy, too, bo called beforo
tho bar or justice. It is terrible to know
how cheaply human life is held in somo
portions of Southern Illinois, and how
easy blood-stained criminals escape tho
penalty of their crimes. Is justice a farce
in Jackson county, or has tho law bocomc
powerloss to punish the guilty 7
AI'KOI'OSE OF THE MISUB OF REFRESH
(From the Philadelphia Ledger.)
The fierce heats of summer tempt tho
incuutious to frequent "refreshments."
First in tho list, come various dlsculses ot
alcoholic stimulants. Tho refreshment
gained from such drinks is a delusion.
Taken in very small quantities when tho
strength is exhausted, and tho person has
leisure to rest, the last result of tho drink
may bo such coolness as results from get
ting away from u Uro. Neither meat nor
drink tends to cool tho body, except as
aftor tho hoat and excitement of digestion
and perspiration havo passed uwuy, tho
person is cooler than while he was eating
and drinking. As tho living body is con
stituted, eating and drinking aro necessi
ties. But as necessities thoy should bo
limited to tho smallest satisfactory quan
tity. Temporanco iu eating and drinking
is tho only condition under which comfort
and health can bo expected during tho
torrid heats of tho summer. Thu more
simplo the food und the moro freo from
etimulus tbo drink, tho cooler and more
comfortable will be ho who purtukes. To
eat to repletion, or to drink, except in mod
eration, is some times equivalent to suicido.
and is inevitably tho cause of discomfort,
if not of illness. Many innocently injure
themselves by flooding the stomach with
fluids, or distending it with frequent re
sorts to what is called " light food," keep
ing the digestive organs at a constant
tension, und, of courso, exhausting tho

HOW nr. 1IEUAVC1) AT THE JUBILEE AND
DISUUSTED A HKlTISn OKEXADIEB.
I From the Boiton Poit, July 2.J
Perhaps tho greatest success of bis visit
was his interview with Colonol Kludyer, a
vivid remembrance of which tho gallant
Colonol will cortoinly carry back to Eng
land with him. A soldier himself, Col
Kludyer naturally wos anxious to moot
tbo man whose military career had placed
him at tho hoad of tho American nation.
Uy his own request he was presented, and
politely remarkod thut ho was happy and
truly proud of tho honor of meeting the
man who represented the nation, and
whoso bravory wa3 so woll known by all
Englishmen and so much admired by them.
A staro was tho oxprcssivo reply which
Col. Fludyer recolved, and tbo only one.
Again ho essayed, quito determined to
hear tho presidential voico, and this timo
remarkod that he was very glad that her
majesty's band, tho Gronadior guards, bad
an opportunity of assisting at tho inter
national jublloo, which was such a glorious
succcm, nnd hoped that thoir playing had
boon satisfactory to Gon. Grant. A ro
sponso must como to thin, and tbo tongue
was loosened. Tho colonel, waiting for
some gracious compliment to his favorite
band, was greatly satisfied when tho re
ply given in tho suavo and gentlo mannor
for which tho presidont is tamed : "Don't
know anything about it; don't caro for
music anyway; nico day, ain't it?" and
tho presidential lips wero sealed, not to be
oponod again for the tenodtofany forolgn
guest during the afternoon, and Colonel
Fludyer retired to congratulate his
American frlonds on the dignity and suav
ity of their prosldent, who, if he has not
learned thut silence is golden, has cer
tainly found that it is sate.
Tho Now York Coinmorcial gives tho
following noto from a woman, up North
