TnK Cabmtai. Last Etehmo.-The
second annual carnival at the Camden Bkating
Park came oil last evening, between two and
throe thousand persons were present, including
the rMe of Camden. A great many came over,
during the evening, from your city, and about
S o'clock the Park wai literally crowded. In
tbe middle of the enclosure a laree polo had
been temporarily rat-ted, to which were sus
pended rores leaVilnir to different parts of tlie
fence; said ropes belnsr filled with vartejtated
Chinese lanterns, which imparted a light almost
equal to the moon. Everything was propitious
for this great event ol the' season the sky over
head bolne clear and bright, the stars
sbininsz in all their glory, and the ice -being in
splendid condition. An evedllent band ot music
was in attendance, and discoursed popular
polkas, waltze?, etc. As the band commenced
playing, all over the ice could be seen couples
automating to keep lime to the tune; many suc
ceeded very well, but others, not being used to
dancing on skates, found themselves In a very
unpleasant position. Nothing daunted, they
were up and at it h trnin , and before the eveninir
was over bad roa-t'-jrad the first rudiments, and
no doubt the 'next lime will be able
to avoid the tumblinsr-down step. Muny
persons were a'tired in costume Punches,
sailors, marines, old men, etc., had many repre
sentative. The ladies were Dot behind the
aentlemen in regard to fancy dresses, as we saw
a tew who were attired in fancy costumes, and
you could see an old woman skating with an
adolescent marine, or a young lady with a man
. ho looked old enough to be her grandlather.

The Tragedy of Testkruay. In our
latest edition of yesterday afternoon we cave
an account of a tragedy the narration of wli ich
has startled the denizens ot our quiet city. The
following are tbe particulars:
The actor in this fearful crime was a man by
the name of James McCormick, aged S2 years,
lie was a short, thick-sot man, with smooth
fuce aud a quiet man nor. lie had for some
time past followed the sea for a living, and bad
been in the naval service during the war. At
the time ot the murder he was out of employ
ment, having been discharged from the Navy
Yard, where he hud been employed as a laborer
until last Wednesday.
For years past McCormick had been in the
habit ot ill-using and abusing his wife Elizabeth,
who was a delicate and rattier sickly woman,
two years his lunior. But it is asserted that
it was only wheu in his cups that he did so, and
when be was sober he was a kind husband and
a good neighbor. Complaints had frequently
been made of his conduct to her, and she lias
Irequently shown marks of his brutality.
But the end of his cruelty culminated yester
day in the cruel murder of his wife. A'iout
balf-pat 11 o'clock the neiehborhood was
alarmed by the sound ot a violent quarrel in.
McCormick's house, which is in McLaughlin's
court, in the rear ot No. 424 Marriott street.
Shortly afterwards one of the neighbors had
McCorniick arrested for an assault and battery
upon his wile, and h was committed, after a
hearing on that charge, by Alderman Lutz.
Soon alter his committal on that charge,
Alderman Lutz received word that Mrs. McCor
niick was dead, and he made out a commitment
against McCormick on a charge of murder.
On going to tbe scene of the occurrence to
leain the real state of affairs, our reporter
learned many additional particulars. Tbe
murder was Urstdiscovered about 12 o'clock noon,
by some blood trickling under the frontdoor
way. On going inside a neighbor found Mr.
McCormick partially ljing on a settee, with the
blood still trickling down from a wound in her
leg on to the floor, where a large mass of clotted
gore had collected on the ran carpet. The
Coroner was notified, and removed the woman,
aud the blood was removed aud washed up as
tar as could be.
The following testimony was given by the
next-door neighbor. He says of McCormick
That yesterday morning he had been drinking
and quarrelled with his wife. A neighbor called
in and pacified them, and then McCormick lay
down on a settee. The same neighbor after
wards heard tbe wite ot McCormick cry out,
"Jimmy, don't kick me!" Then all was quiet,
until they saw a quantity of blood that had
come from Mrs. MeOonn'ck. She had been
kicked on the leg, and she bled to death from
the wounds made.
He had attempted her life, and often threat
ened to kill her, and ?he lived in dread of ber
lile. When be was charge! with the murder,
McCormick made a defense that she had fallen,
aud cut her leg over a bucket.
A Broker Missing Fears of Foul
Plat. On Saturday evening last, about nine
o'clock, Mr. Isaac Rowe, a broker doing business
in the office of Mr. Thoma9 A. Truetitt, on Gold
street, arrived at his residence, No. 611 South
Eleventh street, in this city. He placed his
wallet on the mantel, and shortly after left the
house, since which time nothing whatever has
been seen or heard of him. The family are in
itreat distress on account of bis disappearance,
and have placed the detectives on bis track, but
as yet without any avail. Mr. Rowe was fre
quently in the habit of carrying considerable
money with him, a vl although he leit his wallet
in the house previous to his disappearance, it is
not known but that he had other money about
his person at the time. It is greatly feared that
he has been waj laid by some desperadoes, and
foully dealt with.
' Mr. Rowe is a ir an of middle height, stoutly
built, with a full, fresb face and prominent nose.
His hair Is slichtlv tinged with grev: beard worn
only under the chin. He dresses usually In
black. If any person can furnish his family
with any information concerning his where
abouts or fate, they will afford great relief to u
stricken family.
Lehigh University. During the year
lwti5, by the niumticence of tne Hon, Asa
Packer, arrangements were periected for the
founding aud erection ol an educational institu
tion at South Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, which
-hould be designated as the Lehith University,
since which time one large building has been
completed, and Packer Hall is being rapidly
erected. The object of this institution Is to
provide opportunities for imparting to young
men a complete pro'esbional education, which .
chould not only supply tbeir seneral wants, but
tit them for immediate and active partici
pation in the practical and professional duties
ot the time. Tne educational qualities of this

Johx Smith in Trouble. Some time
uuo, when John committed suicide, we thought
that we had done with him. But it was not
long afterwards that he was uo for murder aud
after that, the last we heard of him he' was
arrested as a auspicious character. Ho was
last evening arrested at Beach ami Brown
streets, on a charee ot interfering with an
otlicer in the dNcbarze of his duties. Otllcer
hart hud arreted a man for drunkenness aud
disorderly conduct, when John Interfered and
yot tbe prisoner ort". 1 he consequence was that
John was himself arretted, and, after a hearing
be I ore Alderman Toland, was held in $500 bail
to answer the charge.
In the Bucket Business. George
Fisher, a young man, was arrested at Eighth
and Catharine streets last evening, on a charge
of larceny. It appears that he went into a provi
sion store at tbe corner of Eighth and Catharine
.streets, and picking uo half a dozen buckets,
was making off with them, wheu the proprietor
of store, seeing the articles disappearing, fol
lowed in their wake, and soon brought the
thief to, and banded him over to an ollit er. He
had a hearing before Alderman I'ottiuger, who
.aiPiUted hln on the tnurge.
A Horse Caps Somc Rich Dbvklop
mknts How John Lavi and bis 8osj David
months since, three lads, named James Springer,
ami eighteen, David Hemphill, aged sixteen,
and I'avid Levi, about fifteen, agree! together
to go into the country and steil some horses.
The evening arrived, but Levi "bucked out."
The two others started. They proceeded to Ches
ter county, and stole two horses belonging to
James and William Fleming, of West Fallow
Township, and made off.
The owners immediately had posters printed
giving a description of the horses, and offered
10o tor the recovery of them and the appre
hension of the thieves. Sergeant Crout and
Policeman Georgo Dcbaven immediately took
the matter in hand, got information piece by
piece, and finally restored the property to the
owners. John K Gardner, after a difllcult arid
tedious journey, captured the two boys. Yester
day the quarto James Springer. David Hemp
bill, John Levi, and David Levi had a hearing
before Alderman Hurley, the two former charg
ing the latter with being accessories.
From the evidence of James Springer, it
appears that the defendants were t'lld by Levi,
when they went up to the country, to be careful
when they came down with the horses; when
they arrived in town they took the horses to
Bcrkenstock's stable at Levi's request; in two or
three days the money for feeding them was paid
by Levi, and they were taken away from the
stable. Levi then proposed to Bend one of them
algrey horse "over Jersey," so as he could
not be seen. With the other horse
the two defendants touk a load of glass
to Camden. Levi' claimed the horse he had
tent to Jersey as his property, as he had paid
to feed him. Tbe horse was sent to Jersey and
put to pasture with a farmer about two miles
out . The bay horse the one the defendants
had was to go out to pasture on the Nlcetown
lane; but he (Levi) didn't tell them whereabouts.
While the horses were in Levi's yard, his eldest
fou, Nathan, put some dye on the horse's
foot, and on the star in his forehead;
his father was standing by his side at the time.
He 6aid he would get a bottle of regular dve,
and sent bis son down to the birbor's, and
offered to give him a dozen bay rum bottles for
a bottle of the original hair colorcr. He was to
pay defendants $20 lor a suit of clothes and a
w atch, for the bay horse. Levi's wife told the
lads they ought to present her children with a
pair of shoes, alter they had dispoied of the
horse. The bay nag was sold to one George
The witnesses were cross-questioned by Mr.
Levi alter the following fashion, "What for you
tells dese thinks ? did ish no auythinks about
dish house; yoush told me him was in Bcrken
stock's;" witness replied that Levi bad toldhim
he had uo room, and that he had told him to
take the house where he did.
Mr. Levi resumed, "Yoush feelos came to mlsh
pla.e and toldish me you al von horish to sell,
dat you bah beu keep him for four or five days,
and you vanted to swop for von wagon nut
harness hay 1 Den I iriveJvou von St tordem
borse, and you borrow von wagon for to go mit
Witness suid he didn't do any thing of the
Tbe witness further stated that Levi's oldc-t
son helped to take the horses down to Berkeu
stock's stable, aud David Levi was going with
him when he went to steal the horses; he
wouldn't go the night they started, but under
stood they were going-.
David Hemphill was examined, and corro
borated all the statements of his confederate,
and stated that Levi's sou came to bis house and
told him be had bett-r clear out as the detec
tives were after bun; he told him he would not
do anything of tbe kind.
John Levi was examined, and acknowledged
that he had told them they had better send t lie
grey horse to New Jersey, but the reason he
did It was because they could board him cheao.
fprinaer was recalled, and stated that Levi
told him to eo to the corner of Fourth and Berks
streets, and he would see a man there; he was
to ask bun where he could get good stabling for
two horses, and this man was to tell him "ye,"
and he was to send the horses around to Berkln
stock's. Then witness was to make a bargain
with him to pay $150 for the bay, and he whs to
get $1H0. Levi told us every morning we took
the horses out to keep a sharp lookout.
The evidence here closed, and Lvi and his
son David were held in $1000 bail. The two
lads were committed to prison.

A NriSANCK. In tbe upper and lower

the public authorities become alive to the fact,
and a few examples, are made. Yett-rday morn
ing a man was arrested in WTater street, below
South, on a charge of throwing allies into the
stieet. He had a hearing before Alderman But
ler, and was fined for breaoh ot ordinance.

WAsniNOTON, January 6.
The Impeachment Questloa.
A call has been issued for a caucus of the Re
publican members of tbe House of Representa
tives this evening. A large number of the
members are absent from tbe city, and It has
been urged to postpone tbe caucus until there
was a lull houac, but it is held lo be advisable to
meet to night for consultation, In view of the
threatened action by Mr. Ashley in taking Inltlv
tory sfps next week for the Impeachment of the
President. A perfect shower of remonstrances
against the attempt at impeachment is reaching
members ot Congress from financial circles,
and it ie almost certain that the measure will be
quietly shelved by reference to some committee,
probably the Judk lary Committee.

Ilonae of Representative.
WASnrNOTOHf, January S.-Vndor the asrcoinent
made yesterday, no business was in order except
reneial debate, as if in Committee of the Wnolc
on the State ol the Union.
Mr. Spauldinir (0'iio) havinr the floor, made
some remarks in reply to the observations of Mr.
Stevens retteoiing on h'm, made the day before the
adjournment over for the ho idays. It so happened
tba whenever he (Mr. Spanidinc) made a remark
in tho House, lie was subjeoted to the oanstie oritl
clem of tbe learned neutleinea from Pennsylvania.
So when be undertook, in the most Innocent man
ner, to explain bis statements In reference to the
lately rebellious (States, and to show that injustice
bad been doue him in the Washington Chronicle,
tho (rerjtleman(Mr. Stevens) bad declared that his
l to th Mmnioi the
editor, and that the doo rine implied in the resolu
tion on which that artio'e commented, was tbe most
ncrnioions that could possibly be got to obstruct the
final tree reconstruction of the Government.
That retolution aimp y instructed the Judiciary
Committee to report what was the view of Conirtess
in pairing the Constitutional amendment. His
friend bad once ma -e a "ood humored fit at him
when be happened lo differ with him In some of his
firoposltions.by saying there as a vacant J udr-eshin
n North Ohio, lie aoinowl -dged the hit (lauithtor),
but he was not a candidate for that Judgeship. He
might call his friend's attention, however, to a very
eulofristic notice of blm in connection with a sea la
the United States St nate. (Laughter.)
Let the one oflfcet the other, and let it be under
stood tbat neither of them were in muoh dancer of
temptation. Heferiinir to the Constitutional Am-nrf.
meut. he deiared that his original understanding
wa that it was to be taken as a measure of concili
ation in part the between loyat and dis oyal states
ana that when tbe latter should have signaled their
approbation of the Constitutional Amendment, and
should have modolled iheir Sta e bovernmeu s so
as to pass the ordeal ot Congress, they would he
admitted to representation.
Annual Message of Governor Fletcher.
St. Louis, January 5. Governor Fletcher's
met-sage wan read yesterdav atccrnoon. It
recommends to the Legislature the ratification
of the Constitutional amendment to the State
Constitution, and the founding of additional
educational institutions.
The total receipts at the Treasury during tho
year, ending September30, 1866, is $1,1 08, 407 -112.

The Governor says: However Kratifyins: may
be the rapid recuperation of the State Irom
losses by the Rebellion, and greatly as we may
rejoice In the marvellous prosperity which
attends upon our Dew condition of freedom, we
have yet to recover the greatest losses entailed
on us by the civil war, tbat of our financial
credit as a State. Tou have now an opportu
nity ol giving our people cause for rejoicing, ex
ceeding that afforded by any event since the
return of peace, by restoring that credit,
and this, too, uuder circumstances which enable
you at tbe same time to reduce the heavy
burden of taxes to about one-halt of the levy of
last year, and yet have a perfect assurance of
being able to meet the accruing interest ou our
State debt. Twelve months have brought hun
dreds of thousands of people with their wealth
of property and labor to strengthen our finan
cial ability. No parallel enlsta to the rapidity
with which wealth has accumulated in rvery
avenue of industry w 1th which population bas
increased in every part of our State. Within
the past year substantial proofs of advancing:
prosperity on every hand attest the
sudden and unexampled growth of the
State. Our taxable wealth nas grown from
$1j8,C02,216, In 18G3, and from $262,354,932, in
1865, to a sum which, through tbe means of tbe
law establishing a State board for the equaliza
tion of taxes. pasBed at the last session, will
reach $400,000,000. Assured of your lull and
hearty co-operation in the measures herein
proposed.it is ample compensation to me for
whatever of labor or thought I have put forth or
exercised, or for whatever of despondency I
have experleuced in the dark and trying hours
of the struggle to redeem our financial honor,
to be enabled to give vou and to send to our
creditors abroad a New-Year's greeting In the
announcement which I make, with serious con
tinence, that free Missouri will, within tbe year,
redeem the plighted faith of slave Missotut.
