THE : DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH. PHILADELPHIA, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1866.' trailing Snlclde of a Supposed French Nobleman and Ills Mother. Nine week ago French gentleman applied for apartments (furnished) at No." 1 Norfolk road, f aldington, ttntlng that he and bis mother de alred the drawing-room floor and a bed -room, and added that he waa a French nobleman, who frojn political, motives aad boon compelled to leave his country. The landlady, Mra. Connor, asked for references, which were given, and whteh comprised the naraesof some ol the higher dignitaries ol the Eoman Cataollo Church, and, the inquiries baring proved satisfactory, the apartments were let to the Frenchman and his mother at 2rs. per week. Since then several weeks have elapsed, when the landlady found that she need not expect auy rent from ber lodpers, and she further discovered that the Frenchman and his mother were living in a atate ot semi-starvation; that notwithstanding they were constantly receiving visitors, the ma- iorlty ot whom came in their carriages, very ittle food came into the house for their suste nance. Last week Mrs. Conner pave her lodgers notice to quit, the said notice to take effect on last Thursday. In the Interim the Frenchman wrote a great many letters, but received very few in return. At half-past 8 on Thinday night Mrs. Connor went upstairs to inquire the reason why her lodgers had not left, aad on knocking several times at the door, and receiving no answer, she concluded they had gone to bed, but as she was going down stairs, the old lady came out of the room, and said it would be all right on the fol lowing morning. AtlOo'cUck on Friday M rs. -, Connor again went to the door ot the rooms, and after knocking for several miaules, and receiving no answer, she became alarmed, and sent for the police. Uawtrco, 1 X, was speedily on the spot, and he ettected an entry into tho room by way of the back window. The Frenchman and his mother were found suspended by cords from the opposite cuds of the window cornioe-roller, and both of them quite dead. The Frenobman was suspended by a piece of window-cord, and the mother had hung hereelt with a small rope pulled from the bed-sacking. There were indi cations showing that alter the nooses were affixed both mother and son stood on a high footstool at the centre of the window, and threw themsolves off simultaneously. At that moment the end of the cornico pole Which suspended the mother, splintered, which caused a depression at the other end, the conse quence being the feet of both parties touched the ground; but so determined were they to commit suicide that bpth of them drew up their legs, and thus consummated their purpose. With their legs bent in this wise they were found by the inspector. Mr. J. 8. Beale, the pollce eurgeou. pronounced that life bad been extinct for several hours. On a sola near the window was found on one end the Frenchman's coat, cravat, and collar, and on the other end the woman's cat) and neck-ribbon. On an adjacent table were several articles of antique Jewelry evidently heirlooms and letters irom several Xnelibh and French noblemen. Close ta where they lav were two sheet marked with ink in large letters. One was marked, '"This lor my self, " the other, "This for my mother." On the table was found the following letter: "Mrs. Connor: You are a Christian and a Catholic, therefore you will know how to fulfil the last prayers of a dying woman, and that it ia a holy duty." My beloved son and myself are lust eoinc to die. We ask from vou to look over that. and see that our dress is not taken from us, and that my son's lalse leg (the gentleman wore a cork leg) be not taken Irom him. I have, pre pared two nieces of bed sheets, and I wish us to be wrapped in them all dressed. I also wish yon to take care we are both placed in the same rave. My beloved son has struggled against his enemies with a courage that a good conscience alone can give. We have suffered a great many humiliations and privations, and we have been consenting to bear such Buffering so long as our religious leelings would permit us. God does 'know our thouguta and our consciences; He will forgive us. We thail pray Him for jou lor what you saw not. Do, by yourself, what I ask from you. xase cure mat it is done, l taatiK you for your kindness to us in our misfortune, and 1 regret the trotiDie we are giving you now; dul i wisu to die nero. i leave to yon nice a reward eight cards (pawnbrokers' duplicates) of very said clothes. Thev are in for 8j their value is, indeed, thirty guineas. I have not had the means to give something to the man who has rendered to us some service, and who, in this last moment, will have something to do. I leave him all . the clothes of my son ; I speak of what i give to yon because i a in persuaded that I do not know; but 1 think our property in your Jnouse has Deen a security lor our expenses up to this time. You mav have the two hats of mv son's, but burn all which you consider should be . thrown away. For a long time I have seen my son suQering and slowly dying. God only know eth all the torments ot my houI. I pray you again to uo an mat. uoa wui mess you. I ) "A. si Caluwb." Close to the man's body was the following let ter: "I should be obliged that the woman upstairs arrange our two bodies, and give her what she likes. There is linen in the wardrobe, if wanted. Everything we have on is very old. I leave a great deal of old linen dirty. I leave eight coats nwA 1 f j-t I, I.Mwlo "M tt ,i ll 1,.n. asks that our faces be covered with linen. I leave Os. Wo have Buffered very much, and I trust, Mrs. Conner, you will do my mother's requests. "F. de Caiajwh." ! Other letters went to show that the gentleman was thirtv-five years of age, aud his mother seventy years ol age. London Paper. MISCELLANEOUS JOTTINGS.
