REMARKABLE DELIVERANCE FROM DEATH.
k Or, an account of Stephen and Jisse Boom, who
were sentenced to tic executed for Ike alleged !
murder of ilussel Colvin.
There is now lying in the jail of Providence j
county, in tiiis city, a man who is sentenced to j
die by the hand of trie executioner, on the 14th I
day of February next. Wo have no disposition 1
to impeach the sincerity of the Jury who found
him guilty, still loss, ii' possible, are wo inclined
.to censure the court for pronouncing the sen
tence of the law, when the verdict of the jury
had rendered the work no longer optional. But j
as the prisoner in this case was convicted upon !
evidence exclusively circumstantial, and as the J
subject of capital punishment itself is engross- j
nig no small share of public attention at the J
present time, we havo been induced to lay be- j
fore tho readers of the Gazette, the history of a
\ most remarkable case, mending to show the
unreliable character of t his species of evidence,
however strong, and how remarkable coinci
dence of circumstances which may sometimes
constitute an apparent coinpleto proof of the
guilt of a person, who is in fact all tho while
innocent.
The case which we have to present, is not
l the less entitled to consideration, on account of
Lts not being a recent one.
Jm More than forty years since, there lived at
Manchester, Vt, two brothers, named Stephen j
and Jesse Boom. Tliey were, it appears, na
tives of the place; of humble but respectable
parentage. Sally Boom, one of their two sis
ters, was marred to Russell Colvin, about the
year 1802. Colvin, always a man of feeble
mind, was often laboring under actual derangc
unent. When these seasons arrived, ho com
monly left the place; and as he was incapable
of taking care of his family, a wife and two
sons, his absence excited the less attention and
regret. At one time lie was gone some nine or
ten months, and was heard of from this Stale,
(Rhode Island,) as being here.
On the 7th day of May, 1813, he suddenly
disappeared. This, as may reasonably be sup
posed, excited but lit tie attention at first, ow
ing to his well known character and habits.—
It wus supposed that after an absence of a few
weeks or months he would return as usual.
Soon aftor, however, suspicions of foul play
arose, and rumors were rife that he had been
murdered. Occasional remarks thrown out by
the Booms, tended to fasten suspicion upon
Hhem as tho perpetrators. Dreams, too, it ap
pears, were not wanting to confirm the impres
sion, and to guide the fancies of an illiterate,
credulous and excited people. Mr. Boom, an
uncle to Stephen and Jesse, a man of high re
spectability, dreamed thai Russell Colvin came
to his bedside, told him that he had been mur
dered, and stated that if he would rise and fol
low him, he would lead hitn to the spot where
he was buried. Mr. Boorn appears to have
accepted this proposal. The place which he
afterwards pointed out to his neighbors, was
ono which had been much talked of previous
to the dream. It was a spot whero a house had
formerly stood. Hcrcaliulo had been made
v for burying potatoes, hut it was now tilled up.
Gn opening the potato-pit, which was about
four feet square, iitdlung was found, except a
large knifo, a penknife, and a button. Mrs.
Colvin, belore they were shown to her, describ
ed thorn accurately, and stated that the largo
knifo and the button had belonged to her hus
band. f
But there wero things more worthy of no
tico than dreams, or that: the discovery just
mentioned, which sustained the popular sus
v picion. A lad with a dog one day going from
Mr. Barna Boom's, father of the suspected per
sons, was stopped by the strange conduct of
the spaniel, which put his feet against his
young master, whined and xetreated to a little
distance, as though desirous that ho should fol
_ low him. The boy went accordingly, and
found a hollow ajiltlo distance from the path.
Tho dog drew out a number of banes from un
der the roots of the stump, and oil a further
examination being made, tioiri the cavity of
the stamp were taken toe-nails, which had the
appearanco of having belonged to a human
foot. Othor nails wero found in a crumbled
r -state, as though they had passed through the
Ufire.
A court of enquiry was held; the hones were
examined by physicians, who, with the excep
tion of one ot their number, thought them to
be human.
A Mr. Salisbury, it appears, a person in the
neighborhood, had had his leg amputated some
, years before. The limb, which lay at tho dis
tance of four or live miles, was dug up, and
the banes in it wcrecocnpured with those which
had been found. Tlie result was, that the
bones discovered in tire cavity of the slump
wero decided not to be human; but the nails
, found near them, it was agreed on all hands,
had belonged to somo one of tile human race.
The ingenious credulity of the populace, too,
found a way of accounting for the appearance
of tho boats. It geems that some of the bones
looked as though they had passed through the
fire, and indeed had in part been pulverized.—
. time before, a barn belonging to Mr.
Barna Boorn, had taken fire accidentally, as
was supposed at the lime, and been consumed.
The Booms had nlso a log heap burning near
the spot where the murder was supposed to
tiave been committed. Hence the populur no
tion was that the body had been taken up nnd
disposed so as to bo consumed at ono of these
fires; that the work had been partially effect
ed, and the remaining bones, it was asserted,
wero concealed in tho stump, having been mix
ed with some not human, in order to avert sus
picion in case they should be found.
Suspicions that the Booms had some guilty
connection with the disappearance and con
tinued übicnco of Colvin had now become so
strong, as to occasion the arrest of Jesse—Ste

county, N. Y., at the distance of 198 miles. —
Jesse was accordingly taken into custody on
Tuesday, the 27th day of April, and search
was made in many places for the body These
soarchos, however, proved unavailing, and
Jesse was about to be sot at liberty, when from
some cause which it is difficult to perceive, on
Saturday, about 10 o'clock, he, in a trembling
voice, made a disclosure of the fact and man
ner of the murder, lie stated that one day,
when Stephen and Colvin were hoeing in a
field called the Glazier lot, a quarrel arose be
tween them. Colvin attempted to run away;
but Stephen, felling him by a blow on the back
pait of the head with a club or stone, left him
apparently dead. He said he knew not where
the body was buried; but he mentioned several
places where lie thought it might be found.—
Search was accordingly made, but to no pur
pose.
I A deputation of three respectablo citizens
j was now sent to New York, furnished with a
| warrant for the apprehension of Stephen. They
proceeded with such expedition as to reach the
j place in three days. Accompanied by a Mr.
I Sylvester, the inn-keeper, together with two
j other citizens, tliey repaired to the house of
Mr. Stephen Doom, in the night, and arrested
him without any difficulty. He denied the
participation in, or knowledge of the murder,
in the most positive terms. His wife was well
I nigh distracted with grief. The unwelcome,
I hut honest visitors, touched by hor distress,
[pacified her as well r.s thoy could, and made
| iier some presents.
Stephen was put in irons, brought to Man
chester, and at first confined in a cell apart fiorn
his brother. Soon afterwards, however, the
two were confined in the same room. Stephen
betrayed great indignation at what lie asserted
to be the false charges of Jesse, and maintain
ed a severe deportment towards his brother.—
The prisoners were subjected to examination
of many days. Jesse, after an interview with
Stephen, recanted his previous declaration re
specting the guilt of his brother, asserting that
the statement which he had been induced to
make was false. But another witness now ap
peared. Lewis Colvin, a son of the man who
j was supposed to have been murdered, testified
i that he saw his uncle Stephen knock down bis
j father, was frightened and ran home. The
j prisoners were fully committed to take their
| trial at Manchester at the next term of the Su
i preme Court.
j Meanwhile they persisted in declaring their
i innocence to the visiting clergyman and to oth
} ors, appealing to Heaven for the truth of what
j they uttered. "I am as innocent as Jesus
j Christ!" said Stephen to the minister. Being
reproved for the extravagance of the expres
sion, he said, "I do not mean to say that I ain
as guiltless as he was; I know I am a great sin
ner; hut I am as innocent of killing Colvin as
ho was!"
j The prisoners were indicted in Septembei,
I hut owing totlio absence of some of the Judges,
j their trial was defered. It finally commenced
i on Tuesday, October 27, 1819, and continued
[ until the next Saturday night. On being ar
| raigued and listening to the indictment, the
i prisoners pleaded JVbl Guilty. The public
1 manifested great interest in the trial; and six
j hundred people are said to have attended each
| day At the close of the evidence and the ar-
I guinents of counsel, the case was given to the
'jury, who, after an hour's absence returned in
|to Court. Being individually inquired of, they
j unanimously decided both the prisoners to bo
j guilty of murder. After the reading of the
j verdict, and the succession of a short recess,
j his Honor Judge Chase, evidently with groat
{ emotion, pronounced, as the decision of the
j court, the sentence: "That the prisoners be re
i munded to prison, and that on the 28tli day of
| January next, between the hours of 10 and 2
j o'clock, they he hanged by the neck until
j oach of them bo dead, and may the Lord have
| mercy on thoir souls."
Great was the confusion and anguish of the
j prisoners on hearing their sentence. Amid
sighs, and in broken words, they most solenin-
Ily and earnestly protested thoir innocence. As
they were being cariied back to prison, Ste
phen, too much overcome to be able to walk,
was supported by the attendants.
The people, who are nover wanting in senti
ments of pity, unless thoy have extraordinary
motives to be cruel, petitioned the Legislature,
then in session at Montpelier, for a commuta
tion of the punishment of death for imprison
ment for lite. Only a few names, however,
could he procured to the petition of Stephen.—
The Assembly granted Jesse's request—yeas
101, nays 31;. and refused Stephen's—yeas 42,
nays 97. Gov. Galuslia brought the decision
to the prisoners, who respectively received it as
might havo been expected; and on the 29th of
October, Jesse, after taking a final farewell of
his brother, his family and his friends, at Man
chester, was curried to the State Prison at
Windsor, expecting there to spend the remain
der of his life.
Stephen, it may well be supposed, was now
in the most pitiable condition. Sometimes he
was calm, at others impatient, and having been
allowed a candle in his cell, he, at the request
of the clergyman to whom we have alluded,
spent a considerable part of his time in reading
the Bible. To this gentleman he still continu
ed to assert his innocence, butsaid, "Mr. ,
1 see no way lint I must die. But lam an in
nocent man. This you will know nfter I am
dead. O, what will become of my poor wifo
arid children?" Having requested the minister
to pray with him, he stood in his heavy chains
during the service.
A Mr. Taber Chadwick, of Shrewsbury, N.
Jersey, saw an account of the trial of the
Booms at Manchester. He was a brother-in
law of Mr. William I'olhamus, of Dover, New
Jersey, whore Colvin had livod since 1813. He
immediately wrote to Manchester the impor
tant news that Cole in was alive'. This startling
but joyful intelligence, it may well be supposed,
produced a great sensation. When the letter
was read to the unhappy prisoner, he could
scarcely sustain the shock; and to appearance
it was only the doubt that still hung over the
subject which prevented his dying. Other let
ters, however, from well known sources, re
moved ail doubt from the mind of the prisoner
and of the cominmnity. Finally, a New York
piper announced that Colvin had arrived and
would soon set out lor Vermont. On the 22d
of December Colvin entered Bennington in the
stage; and, as may well be supposed, was the
"observed of all observers!" The people flock
ed around; business was suspended; and tlio
County Court adjourned to look at him. To
wards evening the stage reached Manchester.
MONDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 30, 1844.
It is impossible to describe the intense interest
which was awakened by the words, "Cofein lni>
come Men rushed in from all quarters to
catch sight "fa man who came among thorn as
one alive from the dead. They could scarcely
believe their senses, till Colvin called many of
them by name. So large and dense was the
crowd, that many could not get a look at him.
Guns wore fired; and the pceplo ran to the
neighboring vilfages and towns to carry the
news. The prison doors were unbolted, the
chains were taken from Stephen's arms, when
he was allowed to meet Colvin. The mutual
surprise and joy may be partly but not fully
conceived.
Soon after, the Booms were set at liberty,
and returned to live with their families, having
been rescued, the one from a felon's ignomini
ous death, and the other from perpetual impri
sonment, in the romaikable manner in which
wo have shown.
THINGS IN PHILADELPHIA.
PHILADELPHIA, DOC. 28.
Sentence of Rioters. In the Court of Quar
ter Sessions yesterday, the lollowing rioters
were sentenced:
John O'Neill, convicted of riot in capsizing
a cart load of dirt at a Native American meet
ing in Kensington, in May last, was sentenced
to nine months in the County Prison.
John Taggart, found guilty of riot, was sen
tenced to one month in the County Prison
This is the individual who was hung by tin:
mob to an awning post, in Second street, but
who escaped by the rope breaking.
John Bennett, pleaded guilty to participating
in the Kensington riots, lie was sentenced to
four months in the County Prison. The prisoner
has already been sentenced to a punishment of
six months' confinement on another bill of in
dictment.
John McAlear, convicted of the same offence
as the preceding, was sentenced to one mouth
in the County Prison. This is the individual
that had his thumb blown oft' by the bursting of
his gun, on the night that young Wright was
killed.
Frederick Iless, a lad found guilty of arson,
in setting fire to a dwelling house at Kensing
ton, during the riots, was sentenced to one
year's imprisonment in the Eastern Penitenti
ary.
Patrick Murray, a store keeper, convicted of
riot in selling ammunition to the mob during
the Kensington riots, was sentenced to six
months' in the County Prison.
Biddle Sopher, pleaded guilty to a charge of
riot, in aiding in the rescue of Dick Mauley.—
He was sentenced to nine months' in the Coun
ty Prison.
The most of the defendants have been in jail
six or eight months and this was the cause as
signed for the leniency of the sentences.
forgery. Two young men, of respectable
connexions, named J. H. Lentz and William
S. Roatcli, were brought before Alderman
Hay, yesterday afternoon, on alleged charge of
forgery. It appeared that the defendants sent
a boy to the Commercial Bank, with a forged
check for a eonsiderablo amount, but that the
paying teller detected the forgery, and detained
the boy, which led to their arrest. It came out
during the examination before the Alderman,
that the same defendants about three weeks
since, tendered a forged check for SIOO at the
Philadelphia Bank, and obtained the money.—
They were ordered to find bail, one in SIBOO,
and the other in SIOOO.
Town Meeting in Favor of Molishing Slavery.
A meeting of citizens, without distinction of
party, in favor of abolishing Slavery, was held
last evening at the County Court House A
preamble referitig to the subject of Slavery in
the United States, and resolutions asking Con
gress to so amend the Constitution as to abolish
slavery in this country. On the question of
adoption, Rev. Mr. Aaron, of Norristown,
spoke for one hour, lie was followed by Mr.
Andrew Miller, who opposed the passage of
said resolution. Mr. Thomas Earl, replied to
Mr. M., and his sarcastic remarks, made in all
good feeling, caused much merriment for the
audience. Two tracts were circulated among
those present, one was entitled "Extract from
the American Slave Code," and the other "De
claration of Sentiment of the American Anti-
Siavery Society." The resolutions as origin
ally read were adopted.
IMPORTANT TRlAL— Conviction of Miss Web
ster. The trial ot Miss Delia Webster, charged
in connection with a man named Fairbank,
with abducting slaves from their mastors in
Kentucky, occupied the Court at Lexington se
veral days last week, and resulted in her con
viction and sentence to the penitentiary for two
years. Her counsel, however, moved for a new
trial. Miss W. is represented as a very respec
table female, and had been engaged at Lexing
ton as a school mistress. Her parents reside at
the North, her father being a worthy farmer in
Vermont, where she also has influential connec
tions. The trial of Fairbank, of whose con
viction there is said to be no doubt, was post
poned until March next.
TEMPERANCE CONVENTION. A temperance
convention, composed of delegates from tho
Eastern counties of Pennsylvania was held
in Philadelphia City last week, at which a
number of resolutions against the license
system, wore adopted. It was also rocom
mended to "tho citizens of Philadelphia to
guard against the use of milk from cows fed on
still slops and brower's grains, a large propor
tion of tho milk suppliod to them being of this
kind. The impure and unwliolesomoquality of
which has long since boon ascertained."
CANADA. The Montreal Herald of Satur
day chronicles renewed outrages by the labor
ers on the Lachine Canal. Mr. Angus Mc-
Pherson, a merchant of Lancaster, was attack
ed by a party of them on Wodnesday evening
of last week, first with stones and then with
clubs—knocked down and cruelly beaten, and
left for dead. Ho was discovered by another
traveller, and assisted to Lachine.
FIRE. The stone-house of Mr. Sam'L Ford,
at Dames Quarter, Somerset co., Md., with its
contents, was destroyed by fire on the 19th in
stant. Loss $l6O0 —no insurance.

SENTENCE Of TIIE REV. CHAS. T. TOltlti.V.
SATURDAY, DOC. 28, 1844. In consequence
of the previous announcement that the opinion
of the court would be delivered to-day, in re
lerenco to tho prayer of counsel in tho caso of
Charles T. Torrey, found guilty of abducting
throe slaves, tho property of Mr. Heckrotte, of
this city, for arrest of judgment and a new tri
al, tkeie was a largo number of persons in the
court room, eager to loarn tho result, and to
hear tho great speech of Torrey, which lie
promised to make if the prayer was not. grant
ed. Soon after the opening of court, however,
J. Mason, Esq., (on behalf of Torrey. and
with assent of counsel,) prayed the court that
Torrey might not he brought into court to re
ceive the decision and sentence; and, fmther,
that ho might bo permitted to remain, as at
present, in jail, until Monday—to enable him
to complete some writing, in which he was
then engaged. Chief Judge Brice, in reply,
remarked that the court felt no disposition to
make any display for public amusement, in the
matter, and would therefore grant the request i
and simply give its decision and sentence to'
the clerk to he recorded. This, as may bo cx- \
I pected, created no little disappointment on the
part of the large number of persons who had
assembled, expecting to hear something rich;
and rare, from the unpublished store-house of
the condemned- Indeed, we had our pencil

ing the opinion and sentence of tiie court.
OPINION or THE COURT.
State vs. Torrey. —lt is certainly a general i
| principle, that where an oftcnce is created by
an act. of Assembly, it is safust to follow the!
very words of the act, but such strictness is not'
absolutely necessary.
If words of equivalent import and meaning i
are used, it has always been deemed sufficient, j
as the intention of the Legislature is as fully '
accomplished in tho ono case as in tho other. !
The ott'ence intended to ho punished by the
act is correctly defined in strict, conformity to I
the law, hut it has been objected that the words
relating to tho personal character of the accua- ]
ed have been omitted, and that he should have j
been described in the words of the act as a free !
person. This, we think, lias been sufficiently i
done in the indictments by tho usual and coin-j
mon designation of yeoman, a term which, in I
judicial proceedings, has always meant Iron per- j
son, and is now used in that sense only when a j
iiee white person is the subject of indictment, j
Free negroes, perhaps, should he designated as,
free negroes, as they arc not entitled to all the j
rights and privileges of freemen, and therefore ,
i not yeomen, in the proper meaning of the;
j word.
| It would, therefore, have been tautology to !
j have used tho words fico person, where the
! word yeoman, meaning the same thing, had
I already been used, and the charges in the in- !
i dictments could only be sustained against a free
j person. Tho prisoner in this caso has been
tried as a free man, and not been deprived of
I any privilege or right to which he wa.i untitled i
under the law, by the substitution or use of the j
I word "yeoman," instead of "free person."
With regard to the number of indictments, I
j one for each slave, it has been urged that there
j should have beeu but one indictment, as it was'
| only one oftcnce—all tho negroes having gone j
I off at the same time. Analogies have been!
i drawn from cases of larceny, where many arti- j
j clcs have been taken at one and the same time :
J from the same person, in which case it is con- i
sidered but one otluucc, and therefore subject j
jto only one indictment. But we see no resem-1
blance between a case of larceny of dead chat- i
j tcls, in the removal of which tho thief is the
j sole agent, and tho offences charged in these j
j indictments, where the voluntary act of each ,
I slave, for himself, separately from the rest, is
I necessary to the completion of the offence, each
must actually run away, in consequence of the
previous illicit incitement of the adviser, and
thus are constituted separate offences, for each
of which an indictment will properly lie.
The act of Assembly, wo think, can have no
other construction. Its language is, "that if
any free person shall entice, persuade or assist
any slave or servant, knowing him or her to be
such, to runaway from his or her lawful owner
or possessor, and such slavo or servant shall ac
tually run away, such person shall be liablu to
indictment in the County Court of the county
where such offence has been committed, or in
the City Court of Baltimore, if committed in
the city of Baltimore,and upon conviction shall
undergo a confinement in the Penitentiary, not
exceeding six years."
The inducements held out by the freo person
to the slaves may be addressed to many at one '
time, and so far are only one act, and if tho j
crime consisted only in that act, it might be the j
subject of one indictment only; but as the ac-1
tual running away is necessaiy to complete the I
offence, and is a separate act of each slave, tho i
indictment must bo considered as separately I
applicable to each, who shall ho induced to run I
away, and it therefore subjects tho adviser to ]
as many indictments as there may bo slaves,
who may be influenced by it.
The several motions in arrest of judgment,
and (ifany) for new trial aro overruled.
SENTENCE. —The following is the sentence:
On the Ist indictment, confinement in the Pen
itentiary from December 28th, 1841, to 2d of
April, 1847. On the 2nd indictment until 2nd
April, 1849. On the 3d indictment until 2d
April, 1851.
