Cases of "historic doubt" seem to be toe legiti
mate propei ty of the novelist. The mystery
which has enveloped the executioner hi' King
Charles tha First, the apparent impossibility of
.ling tba act of beheading upon any man for
cerUln, ) opened to the writers of historical
fomsDce a fail ?)d for the exhibition of their
art. And iuey have all l-'iCBlWlj8' ' 'bo
epprrtnnifT. To mention one or to i'Zr!ncu :
the aotlior of "Whitehall," M. Alexandre
Comas in bis "VlnginAptvs,"nnd Mr. Sla
In hi- novel of "Captain Dangerous," have fntro
.ncttl to the bUhlie various candidates for the
tistitction of having killed a king.
The generally accepted theory,' however, is to
the effect that the deod was done by the conrn in
hvnguan of tha period for a reward of thirty
tsoouda. lint tbo name of tbe hangman has been
leas clearly ascertained. Jack Ketch, "a wretch,"
tajs Macaulay, "who had butchered many brave
and noble victims, and whose name bat, duninr
a century and a half, been vnlg irlv given to all
who l ave succeeded bltn in bis odious o'llcc,"
was not sppoin'ed until about l'iH2. "While
Jtffries on tho bench, Ketch on the gibbet sits,"
says a lampoon of tbe time. Tbo bundling
orueliy exhibited on the occasion of tbe execu
tion of unfortunate Duke of Monmouth nearly
led to tbe destruction of Ketch by the infuriated
nob a strong guard was necessary to save tbo
Jievutioi er heinjt torn In ploceo.
Ketch bad succeeded a man named Dnti, who
is aodreiMteo as Squire Dno in a poem by lltuler
"The aiidltion of squire,' " says an uuthoritv.
"wlih which Mr. Dun is dignified, is a mark that
ke bad btbiaded Some State criminal lor high
tieaton, an operation which, accordlnir to custom
for time out of mind, bos always entitled the
operator to that distinction." Tbe predccetur
of Dun was Oregoiy Brandon, afcer whom the
gallowa was somt times called tbe Gregorian treo,

AVe regard this Intelligence as conveying a fac
of the utmost importance, and consequently cal
tbe especitii attention of the fxocnttve,revenuB mil
port authorities to it. 1 he ni ed States Govern
ment has no ram of any description employed
In if service off the cousts of Knrope or on the
Atlantic, whereas the Rebel naval representatives
in the Old World have, as everybody knows,
tiaded in vessels of this description, from L iird's
v ard, at Ilirkenliciid, K.mtland, to Hordcnux, In
France, and thence away to the shores of tha
Uo'Pborna. -
Toe steam ram which passed the Isle of Wight
on tbe 2btb of July was, in all likelihood, a Bcb.-I
ram, notwithstanding the fact that, she displayed
the Union flair. This bas, no donbt, been done
in order to enable her to escape luterrapption ou
the part of our cruisers.
If the were a Hehel war vessel, she must he
