I saw her »ml she said, Mr. Blake I know yon and will tell you ali that I know about it. John Rhodes went over with me about nine o clock in tbe evening ; he said that there was some B—n of a b—h that be wanted to see, and that 1 was always after Jim Temple. John is jealous of Jim and he thought that if it was not for Temple I would marry him, he was jealous of any man that spoke to me, lie had beaten me onee. After that I went to see him and found him asleep, I got one of the men in the oell to wake him up and I judged that he bad been drinking. I said to iiim that I w -1 sorry that suspicion had fell upon him for the murder of Temple He replied that he did not kill him i ui he was out in Hedgeville. My idea for talking to him was that I bad known Temple for over 15 years as a peaceable citizen, and that some one ought to be brought ta justice. I then asked him what time he went out to Hedgeville, and he replied that he was there from 8 to 12 o'cIock. I then told him that the young girl spoke differ ently, she says you went, out home with her. He then sabl lie had been told that they bad bis clothes and that they all wet anil muddy, and asked me to down home and bring his mother tbe Hall, anil he would A were up to soon fix that mat ter. I asked one of the police if bisi mo ther would be permitted to see him and was told that she would not. J then went back to him, and be said,Blake as this thing has goner • far as it hrs, I will tell you all about it. I don't intend to let any of those other suckers buzz me. He them made the following confession to me: I did it in self defence, last Satur day n : ght week he la d for me. When I went last night at 9 o'clock he met me along the road, and s^d, "you s—n of a b—li, I will l ; llyou\ I knocked him down with a stone took his knife and cut his throat, he said, put it on me now you have got me. After I had done cutting his throat I crossed a plowed field, come home changed my clothes and to Hedgeville. I came home f.ora Hedge ville,and staid all nigbt, before I left him he wrs dead, there was no one with me. I threw the knife in the ditch opposite where I killed him. 1 did not ask him to make confession; I held out no inducements; I told him he might get a lawyer, and it might be a case of self-defence; he could not recog nize the atone; when I went over to look at the body, the giil Lucy pointed to a stone, and said there was the stone that he had struck him with. John Thompson sworn—I wai in town on Saturday night; started out about 10.30 o'clock, and while driving along the road my mare became frightened; I looked out to see what was the and saw a man lying in the road; I did not stop to see who it was or what was the matter because I thought that possi bly he was drunk; In the morning I asked Peiry Demby if he saw a man lying in the road last night when he was coming home; he said he did; I then asked him who it was, and what was the matter; he replied that he was dead drunk and that himself and son had picked him up and carried him to one side of the road; while driving ont 1 met three men coming towards town, but before I reached them they passed through a gate and crossed over towards the bone mill; they did not appear to be frightened; they had three dogs with them; they were about one hundred and fifty yards from the body when I saw them. Sergeant Whelan, sworn—In the early part of this month Temple came into the police office, und asked for a warrant for a man that hod assaulted him; I am satisfied from the description given that it was Rhodes that committed the as sault. John McCaffrey, sworn—Between five and six o'clock, a colored man came and woke me up, and told me that a man had been murdered over the bridge; I thought at first that he was fooling me; after I got on the street I met James White and he told me the same thing; when I got out there the old lady told me to go and arrest John Rhodes, and I would get the the right man. Mary Duckery cross examined; was not in bed when ray husband came home, I was getting ready to go to bed when the man came and told us that a man was killed down the road. The way the blood got on the shawl, I was cleaning on the bed, and went out ter fish, aud it was lying when 1 opened the shad, the blood flew on it. Dr. Ogle sworn:—Dr. Grimshaw, and myself made an examination ot the wounds on the body of James Temple, we find a fracture in the skull about four inches above the ear, and about four inches from the line of the nose; also a wound on the side of the face, and the lobe of the left ear entirely severed; also the fingers of the left hand cut nearly tlirough;we also find the throat cut clear through to the vertebrae. Lucinda Duckery cross examined; It was the woman next door that told us that there was a man dead down the road; saw the stone lying there; did Dot tell Mr. Blake that it was the stone that Rhodes struck Temple with; did not of fer Rhodes any liquor; I never sent for him to come and see me; did not see any blood fly on the shawl from the fish. After cross examining the above wit ness the jury at 6.30 o'clock adjourned until 7.30. EVENING SESSION. James Bachas sworn—don't know any thing about the murder: saw Khodes in the evening; had a drink together; staid his house all night; do not know what time he came home. Lucinda Duckery recalled: never saw a knife with Khodes, nor with Temple; saw Temple with one last night, it had two blades. (Knife shown) that is not the one. Isaac Bachas sworn-do not know any thing about it; never saw Tempi* carry a knife; never stated to anyone that I could tell a great deal more about the fuss than any one. The examination of the above witness es closed the testimony. THB VltRDICT. Mr. Mitchell offered the following as the verdict in writing : That James Temple came on the night of April 21st, 1877, b T balD K struck in th* head with a piece of slag, and afterward having his throat cut with a Barlow knife in the hands of John Rhodes, on tho road leading to New (■astle south of the Christiana, in New Ä' hundred.

Early Sunday morning the Coroner was notified to hold an inquest the body of a man who had been found dead in his bed at No. 609 Orange stieet. Upon inquiry it appeared that the deceased was a German named Got tleib Gogler, a baker, who for the past six months had been in the employ of Henry Miller, baker, at the above named place. Tbe cause of the death was over a mys tery, as the man had retired to bed on Saturday night in bis usual health, so Ceroner Rose, bad the body moved to undertaker Fox's office, Sixth and Shipley streets, where Dr. A. H. Grimshaw made a |post mortem examination. By this means it was discovered that death had been caused by water on the Brain. Deceased was a young man about twenty-five years of age, a native of Germany and so far as is known had no relatives in this country. He ap peared, however to be quite well off, as he had $300 in a Philadelphia Savings' Bank, and possessed two watches, and a wardrobe of large ex tent, and geod quality. The body was left in charge of un der**iker Fex and to-morrew evening at 7-30 o'clock the Ceroner will hold an inquest. rr A HEA VY S TEAL, A MAN GIIAUGKD WITH PURLOINING $685 Before Esquire Brady yesterday morning, ex-policeman Morris Car berry appeared aDd charged Emil Waller, proprietor of a drinking saloon and house of Ill-fame or South Mar ket street, with robbing him of $685.

The Funeral of Georee Frank Gouloy The funeral of George Frank Gouley took place on Saturday afternoon, from the residence ®f his sister-in-law, Mrs. White, No. 0*0 Kin* street, and very largtly attended. At the house, the casket lid was opened and numerous friends took their last look st the fea tures of *he deceased. The face looked quite natural, and save a slight bruise was unmarked. About two o'clock the body was con veyed to Trinity Chapel, Fifth and King streets, the following gentlemen, mem bers of the Masonic Fraternity, acting as pall bearers; R. Lewis Armstrong, Wm. B. Norton, J. W. McDowell, R. Lock wood, Edmund Rice, C. W. Horn. At the church, which was crowded by a large congregation, impressive funeral ceremonies were conducted by the Rect or, R«v, W. J. Frost and appropriate musical services were rendered by the choir under the leadership ef Professor Rhodes. WHS TUE BURIAL. At the conclusion ef the church vices, the casket was conveyed to the hearse, and soon after the funeral pro cession started in the following order: Cornet Band; St. John's Coro mandery, No. 1. Knight Templars; hears«, attended by pall-bearers and masonic escort; carriages conveying re latives and friends of deceased. The procession passed up King street to Ninth, along Ninth to West, up West to Delaware Avenue, and out to the cemetery. During the procession the band performed solemn dirges, and the sidewalks were lined with an immense concourse of people, who accompanied the funeral cortege to the grave. At tiie grave the burial service of the Episcopal Church was read by Dr. Frost, after which the band performed the ap propriate and touching air "Sweet spirit hear my prayer," rendering it in a irost affecting manner. As the Masonic cere monies had been previously performed in St. Louis, the members of the order in this city simply acted as a funeral escort, and held no servicej at the grave. A final look was taken at the last resting place of the deceased, the mourners and friends departed, and the funeral cere monies of George Frank Gouley were ended. Upon returning to the lodge room* the members of St. John's Commandery, Knight Templars, were addressed by Sir Knight W. W.

It strikes most persons as vsry strange that Persia should be offering troops to Russia to help fight the Turks. As Per* sia is a Mohammedan country it seems violently unnatural that she should join in the Greek Christain crusade against the chief representative of Mohomme danism in the world, the Sultan of Tur key, Caliph and Defender of the Faith. The explanation simply is that there are heretics among the Mobammedons at among the Christians, and Persia is the head and front of the greatShi-ite heresy. Scarcely was Mohammed in his grave till a dispute arose over the succession. Abu Becker was chosen as the caliph by the greater part of the church, but Ali, the prophet's son-in-law, was made so by another faction. Abu Becker's title was acknowledged by the Arabs and af terwards by the Turks, and to-day is held by both, as also by all the Moslems of India and Africa. But Ali and his successors obtained dominion over Per sia and they hold it to this day. While the orthodox Mussulmans say "There is no god but God and Mohammed is b's prophet," the Persians aid, "and Ali is the vicar of God." As usual in such cases, the members of these two factions hate each other worse than they de out siders. There was joy in St. Louis, a few weeks ago, upon I he publication of a new city directory, from which, by an ingeni ous system of computation, the arithmet icians of the place were able to show that St. Louis is far more populous than its, rival, Chicago: that, in fact, St.Louis has a population*of 501,489, while Chi cago, according to the last national cen sus, has but 300,000. The chagrin of Chicago, at such a showing on behalf of St. Louis, can be imagined; and we sup posed that Chicago's new directory,when manipulated by the mathematicians, would prove the place to be far more pop ulous than St. Louis. The Chicago op erators, unwilling to stand behind Saiut Louis even for a moment, have already found other means than a new directory to show Cliicago's superiority. They rush before mankind, pointing proudly to the fact that, at the recent elections, the to tal vote polled in each of the two cities stood thus: Chicago, 50,000; St. Louis, 41,U7, thus making it plain that the act ual voters of Chicago numbered 9,000 more than those of St. Louis. Now, it is evident that if St. Louis, with but forty one thousand voters, has a population of half a million, then Chicago, with nine thousand more voters, must have a popu lation of between six and seven hundred thousand. In neither case is the basis of computation, whether it be the new di rectory or the votes polled, as satisfactory in all respects as It ought to be; and it cannot be maintained that the deduc tions from these bases are fully concaten ated in all their parts; but yet we must admit that any way of keeping peace be tween the rival cities until the next cen sus can be taken, is preferable to war. In the mean time the safest course for out siders is to believe what Chicago says about St. Louis, and what St. Louis says about Chicago.— N. I r . Sun.
