Thc chief scnsatlou of the past wcek

mulatto of 30 vears of age. and Katie
EvelinaMarsh, a white girl. aged 13, the
dauglitcr of a respoctable farmer, Charles

follows: Edwards has resided in the

white woman. This winter he has liad a
horse-power sawing macliine. In order
to run it heobtained two horses. One he
bought of Crosby Martln of Rochester,

recess uisappeared. It has since come
out that lier flight with Edward was pre
arranged and that on leavlng the school
house she walked to a poiut ucar his
house, wliere he was walting for her with
his team. They drove over the nioun
tains to East Middlebury and thence to
Vergennes, where they staid at the

ter paying his hotel hill at McXcil's,
Edwards' funds were cxhausted, and it
became necessary to pawn his watdi to
pay ferrage. In conducting nogotatlons
he made tho acirualntance of Mrs. Davld
l.aramie of Willsboio, a place four miles
from Essex. The runaways went to I.ar
