Prompt Hanging of Cairo there, the Wife Murderer. THE CRIME. A Mother's Head Crashed io the Presence of Her Children. Jealousy and Bad Whiskey the Active Agents. A PRIVATE EXECUTION. The Culprit's Avowal? "Didn't Mean to Kill." Barbie, Ont., June 11, 1873. The gallows In Canada does its work surely if aometlmes slowly, but at their slowest the wheels of Justice Here revolve Infinitely more swiftly than they do In tbe States, where the most frivolous pretences oft repeated are allowed to intervene between the criminal and his well-merited doom. Tbe almost hopeless nature of in attempt to con vict and adequately punish a murderer within two years of the commission ol his crime, the soft-heart edness of Governors, who reprieve and commute sentences and pardon out murderers on tbe slightest provocation, and the general uncertainty and un safe ty of human life thence resulting, must be taken as furnishing one of the principal reasons why the Canadian people look with distrust upon their American cousins and are disinclined to enter into intimate political and social relations with them. Here the murderer must come np for trial at the first Assizes that follow, dilatory pleas are never regarded, emotional insanity would be a hopeless excus^ and once a verdict Is found and sentence passed the culprit's fate is sealed, so far as the Courts are concerned. Espe cially in Lower Canada, the Bench, being ap pointed, is recruited from the Queen's counsel who have made their mark as crown prosecutors in capital cases. The late Chief Justice Aylwin and Justices Johnson, Drummonil and Ramsay are conspicuous instances of this. The finest criminal lawyers are thus placed on the Bench, with the perlect independence secured by a life tenure and with the whole moral force of the community be hind them, so that the guilty criminal who comes up for trial stands a fair chance? say niuety-ninc chances lu a hundred? of "kicking heels with his throat in a rope." CARRUTHERS' BRCTAI. CHIMB. Another of these guilty wretches has just been sent to his merited doom, in this bustling little town to-day James Carruthers has expiated on the shameful tree the cowardly murder of the woman whom, twenty years before, at the altar he had ?owed to love und cherish lor life. The facts of the tragedy arc briefly as follows:? James Carruthcrs lived with his wile Rebecca, a woman of forty or thereabouts, at Essa, in the county of Simcoe. With them were their three children. Their mar ried life bad not been happy, although it does not seem that Mrs. Carruthers' conduct had been such as to merit the treatment of her husband. He accused her of infidelity, and repeatedly declared that their eldest son, William, was not bis son, abusing tue boy as well as his mother. The latest object of his Jealousy was the cousin of his wile, Samuel Aber nethy, who came to reside near Essa, who, on one occasion, went Derr.v-plcklng with Mrs. Car ruthers. Angry words followed and husband and wife separated lor a few weeks. In November she went away again, this time to Medonte, causing her husband to fret himself with the torturing belief thai Aberncthy had induced her to run ?way, and that she would not return. He believed that Abernethy had shot at him on one occa sion and wounded him in the leg, and showed several scratches, which he claimed were marks of buckshot. Ills oondu<*?, towards his wile was marned by alternations of affection, Jeal ousy and cruelty, which his cotiu scl afterwards en deavored, but, unsuccessfully, to ascribe to in sanity. To one witness he said, "McLardy, I wish to God I had never met mv wife." To another, l>avld Carrufners (a namesake, though no relation of his), he said, "Have, my daughter is as tine a firl as ever lived, but my wile is the worst woman ever saw." THE KILLINfl. Thus things were on the 4th of December last. Isaac, one of the sons, a boy ol fourteen, cainc ba< k Irom school at five o'clock with his sister. HIS father was not at home, and he weut down to the little settlement of Ivy, where he found him at the blacksmith's snop. After rcniainiug about half an hour there ho asked bis father If he would not come home. The parent answered. "No," but sent the boy home with the horses and sleigh, following him shortly after. Carruthers had taken several drinks of whiskey. When he entered he looked at his wife with a long, steady n aze, full of deadly purpose and fascina tion, then said "Rebecca, you will fall to-nlpfht." "Shall I fall a dog fall f" she answered. "You will find out what sort or a fall," he growled in reply. Tne fiendish impulse was raging within blm, but he needed more fuel ror the flauic. Rum was what he wanted to tire ills brain and nerve his arm for the bloody work he had yet to do? for the butchery or his wife in the midst of their children. He took a lantern, then set it down irresolutely, and went out without it, saying he was "iroing to Ritchie's." a tavern near by. Alter about ten minutes* ab sence he returned, and his better angel left him at tbe door and vanished, despairing, in the dark. Re-entering the room with a whipstock in his hand, he took up the lamp, set it down, took off his coat, laid it on the back of a chair; then rais ing the whipstock, struck his wife a violent blow on the head. Who screamed and threw up her arms. The children ran into the road, uttering cries of alarm ; but ere they reached the door heard the blow repeated, dull und deadly; then the crash, as TIT KIR MOTHER FELL HEAVILY opon the blood-besprinkled floor. In a few minutes Frank Wood, a school teacher, who boarded with Mrs. McDonald, at the opposite house, ran Into the house accompanied by his landlady. Tne victim lay on the floor, her hair clotied with blood and with tfcro or three wounds on it. The school master and Mrs. McDonald washed her face with s\>w to revive her. There was no wound vlslblo oi7ner forehead. Carruthcrs held the lamp while they were bathing his wile's bead, and asked If sbe Was dead, adding:? "If she is not dead I will kill her." "You have olten tried to kill her,'- said the neigh bor, "and you have done it at lust." Carruthers then said he would not run away, but would give himself up, and asked the teacher to go ioi the constable. Kre going Air. Wood looked at the body of the woman. The eyes were closed, but the eyelids were fluttering, tioing to the door he sent one of the sons for the doctor, thinking that there was lite to be saved. When he returned her head had (alien on her breast and there was blood upon her lace anil lorehead, which was not there when he left lie r, Tne woman died twenty six hours after. The post-mortem examination showed that there were wounds on the back of the head, which were only cut wounds, such as would have been produced by the whipstock; but tne wound in the torehead had smashed the frontal bone all to fragments, and had evidently been In flicted by a heavier instrument. An axe was found in the room covered with blood, so tbst, though no eye save the all-seeing eye ot (>od had beheld tbe bloody deed, the story was plainly written In char acters of crimson. After his wife had been struck down aud was Ivlntr senseless, whtle one neighbor was seeking the doctor und one tbe officer or the law, tbe brute, determined to make assurance doubly sure, had smashed in the woman's head With the axe. TRIAL ANO SENTENCE OF DEATIt. At his trial at tue April assizes his counsel en deavored to set up the plea of insanity, adducing his jealousy of his wife as its cause, and also rested on the absence of direct proof to show that the fatal blow on the forehead had been delivered by tilm. The Jury were not long absent, and returned ? verdict of guilty, adding a recommendation to mercy. On being asked if he had anything to say why sentence of death should not be passed upon Elm, Carruthers said, "No; I leave it all In Your ordshlp's hands." The Judge, in set and brief terms, ordered his recommitment to prison aud his ?xecution on the 11th or June. THE EXKCtTIOJT. In conformity with the sentence, Carrnthers met tils rate at. the scaffold within the precincts of the Jail here this morning, since his confinement the prisoner had continued to grow weak from loss of appetite, and on many occasions has been known to abstain from food lor a period of nearly two days; so much so, In fact, had he become reduced in health and strength that It was the opinion of the jail officials and even JUa medical attendants ta^t tit? hanfmau'ji rope would never encircle Me nee*, ont that previous death would take place. Within the past few days, however, he had revived In t-pirits considerably and expressed himself willing to meet his fate, liaat night he Bang hymna and slept soundly from nine until twelve, when he arose and took a smoke and a drink of water, and at about hall-past one he again returned to rest and slept for two honrs. He then again rose and washed himself, and shortly alterwards partook of a cup of tea and a biscuit. His spiritual adviser was with him from fonr o'clock in the morning until the execntien at Ave minutes to seven. The Sheriff entered the condemned cell Ave minutes thereafter and returned to the Jail yard accompanied by the culprit. The latter, though pale and much reduced in flesh since incarceration, manifested no sign of emo tion. The Sheriff ascended the scaffold stairs in advance of tne condemned man. Carrut hers fol lowed unaided, though unaccompanied, and abso lutely gamed two or three steps upon the Sheriff before reaching the top. The prisoner was then placed upon tne drop. Rev. Mr. Morgan read the Episcopal service, the prisoner and himself kneel ing. Carruthers uttered not a word other than the " Ameul" SWUNG INTO KTKRNITY. At six minutes past seven o'ciock, and immedi ately on the conclusion of Hie prayer, the bolt was drawn and the victim fell a few inches short of six leet, and was launched Into eternity. In the fall the slippers of the condemned man were jerked from his leet and thrown several yards distant. Death was almost instantaneous, bat there were twitching* of muscles In the arms and legs fully fliteen minutes after tne fall. The opinion of the medical men In attendance? Drs. T. C. McConkey, Alexander Hamilton and W. H. Blackstock? was that death ensued within nine minutes. In exactly half an hour from the tailing of the drop the body was taken down, placed in a coffin, and conveyed to an adjoining yard to await the Inquest, alter which it will be interred within the precincts of the jail. "DIDN'T INTBND TO MILL." He had stated, with regard to the crime, that he had no intention of killing his wife, but merely to quarrel with her; vet the influence of liquor led him on to a worse action, and such he bad hoped would not be the occasion of her death. To whiskey he laid the whole cause of his crime, and said, "Had it not been for liquor he would not nave been brought to this disgraceful end." He bade fare well to his mother last night, and told her to live more aud more in the fear of her Maker in future, expressing at the same time that, were it possible for him to renew life, he would tako a course far different to the reckless one now past and love his God with greater fervency. The execution, in accordance with law, was a private oue. aud witnessed by some iorty persons only. This has been the first execution In this county. The murderer was dressed In a white shirt and brown colored pants, wearing slippers on his leet. Tne executioner wore the dark grav uniform of the jail inmates, and had his lace and hands blackened with charred cork. THE WALWORTH MURDER. Prank H. Walworth Pleads to the In dictment for the Murder of Hts Father? Appearance and Bearing of the Prisoner In Court~-No Day Yet Pixed for the Trial. Teste rday morning Judge Ingraham opened the Court of Oyer and Terminer, acting as presiding judge in the temporary absence of Judge Davis, holding the current term of the Court. Through some occult knowledge peculiar to that class of the community which seems to have no other sublu nary business or calling than to revolve round the criminal Courts of the city, the court room was crowded in anticipation of the pres ence and arraignment of young Walworth for the murder of his father, Mansfield Tracy Walworth, in the Sturtevant Ilotcl. The crowd were not disappointed of the opportunity of looking upon the youthful criminal and of tak ing away with them from the procedings of the morning a fruitful theme of speculation and com ment. The prisoner, by direction of the District Attorney, was early conveyed from the Tombs in a close carriage and for some time previous to the opening of the Court was detained in Sheriff Bren nan's private ofllce. When brought into Court he took the seat to which he was motioned by the Sheriff's deputy with an air of the greatest uncon cern. Walworth presents but little of the prcpos slng and impressive appearance of his unfortunate father, for whose most untimely "taking off" he was there to answer. He has a large head, plain features, full face, small side whiskers, black eyes, not large, and possesses certainly the coolest demeanor that has ever characterized u person accused ol such a fearful grade of crime ap pearing at the bar in this city. His attire was of the most unpretentious? black frock coat, closely buttoned, and light pantaloons. A large blue "but terfly" ornameuted his collar. The atmosphere being sultry aud oppressive, he kept his hat ? a small, round-crowned lelt? in his hand and ranned himself while waiting for what was to come. To use an expressive phrase, he was "as cool as a cu cumber," and conversed freely and with ease with his counsel, ex-Judge Garvin and \V. A. Beach, aud with any other who chose to address him. While he was sitting with Deputy Shields au acquaint ance of the latter, walking close to him and not recognizing the prisoner, said "Hello, Mhlelds ! Are you going to have him down to-day?" "Have who down?" asked the the omcei. "Why, yonng Walworth, to be sure." "This is the gentle man," returned Shields, pointing his finger to his companion. Walworth merely looked at the ques tioner and nodded his bead affirmatively at the last remark of his keeper. He seemed to listen anx iously to the song of the court crier as he formally opened the proceedings, and next directed his gaze intently at the District Attorney as he moved on the cause. The iJistrlct Attorney arose, and, looking at the indictment, said that he desired to have the pris oner plead. THE ARRAIGNMENT. Clerk? Prisoner, stand up. You are indicted for murder in the first degree In having caused the death of Mansfield Tracy Walworth. Do you de mand a trial? Arc you guilty or not guilty? Prisoner? Yes, sir (meaning he demanded a trial) . Ex-Judge Garvin then got up and said that the defence would be prepared to procecd with the trial two weeks irom Monday. The District Attorney signilled his readiness and willingness to go on at any time. The Court suggested a week's time, Mr. Beach said that they desired the trial to com mence at as speedy a day as possible ; but one week would be insutlicient time, as he was engaged with the Sharkey trial and as the District, Attorney would prosecute in that ense he thought a longer time necessary than one week. The Court said Judge Davis, who would preside, had better be consulted. It was finally arranged to leave the matter open until to-day, when Judge Davis could be inter viewed and a definite day fixed. The arrangement being acquiesced In by all con cerned. young Walworth, wearing the same air of imperturbability, was ushered ironi the room and recon veyed to the Tombs, followed oy a curious crowd. A JERSEY RAIL SLAUGHTER. Terrific Rmash-Up on the Newark Mead ows? Half a Dozen Periona Badly Hurt and a Hundred Sheep Killed. About half-past two o'clock yesterday afternoon a terrific collision took place on the New Jersey Railroad, at the East Newark junction, between a freight train, drawn by locomotivcNo. 804, and the two o'clock passenger train Irom New York, drawn by locomotive No. tiDfl, the cause of whlcU nobody in the employ oi the company was willing to disclose yesterday, but which appears to have been nothing but sheer carelessness or neglect, either on the part of the engineers or the men in charge of the signals. At the point where the collision took place the rails of the Centre street and Market street branches join. The locomotives of both trains were knocked Into "pi," as were also several freight cars ami the baggage and smoking car of the passenger train. As good luck had it. nobody was killed, though nail a dozen persona were more or leas seriously injured. THK MOST SERIOUSLY HURT was the engineer of the passenger train, James Stewart, 01 Trenton, and lienry McTighe. a pas senger, employed by Gregory A Co., Jersey city. Engineer Stewart was very badly cut up, but the Newark doctors thought he would not die. He was sent on to his home in Trenton. Mr. McTighe had his right leg badly shattered. He was removed to Jersey City. John Hardlgan, the baggage master, was injured also, but not se riously. Henry Hoffman, the fireman, UKewise suffered painful wounds and contusions. Several other persons were slightly hurt, but they removed themselves without aasistance. An elderly gentle mtu of Newark named Phtneas Jones, who was a pass"ngcr. was rendered nearly crazv with fright. As might naturally ?e expected' the people on the passenger train were all dread full v scared. Those in the smoking car sprung out of the windows when they saw that danger was inevitable. A. gentleman named Plympton, of Jersey City, had A MIRACTI.ors KMC A PR. He was sitting in the engine cab with Stewart, but somehow was thrown out without sustaining even a scratch. A number of other hairbreadth escapes were also described to the Hrrald repre sentative. who visited the scene immediately alter the disaster. About one hundred sheep on board the freight train were instantly killed and lay alongside the track la?t evening. The wreck of the engines and cars was visited by a large crowd of people irom Newark and Harrison. A large force of men were promptly on haud, clearing away the dflbrls, so that by fonr o'clock travel was uninterrupted. It was delayed lor a short time, too, on the Morris and Essex road, as that road almost kisses rails with the New Jersey at the Kast New ark jnnrtion. (exaggerated reports caused much cxcitciMVlit U) Newark |Mt evening, THE COURTS. John Browne was charged yesterday, before Commissioner Shields, with dealing in counterfeit money, a quantity of spurious fifty cent stamps was found upon the prisoner when he was arrested. He was committed for examination. In the United States District Court yesterday, before Judge Blatchford and a Jury, the trial of the case of the United States vs. A Quantity of Human Hair, olalmed by Hugo Seitz k Co., was com menced. Tne action is instituted to condemn the hair, on the ground that it was landed at this port without the permit of the naval officer. Case still on. Mr. Simons, United States Assistant District Attorney, for the government; Stanley, Brown k Clark for the claimants. Not long since the seizure of the distillery sit uated at the corner of First avenue and Thirty ninth street was effected by government officers. The ground of the seizure was that the distillery was manufacturing rum from molasses, while the license Issued to the establishment only permitted It to mane brandy from molasses. The owner of the distillery, Mr. John Boyd, commenced a suit to recover the seized property, alleging that there ! had been no violation of the license. The case was brought to a close yesterday, after a trial of two days in the United States District Court, before Judge Blatchford and a jury. The jury found a ver dict for the government. E. M. Shepard for the claimant; T. Simons, Uuitcd States Assistant Dis trict Attorney, for the government.

Soon after the adjournment Mr. C. S. Spencer came In, said Mr. Itus8ell bad nothing to do with the case, and observed that this was a question of law whether the prisoner had violated any statute of the United States. He claimed that the prisoner was a person of integrity and had committed the act comnlalned of while laboring under Intoxica tion. The Commissioner rnled that he must first hear the evidence for the government before deter mining whether defendant was responsible. Case adjourned till to-day. SUPREME COURT? CHAMBERS. Decision*.

COURT OF GENERAL SESSIONS-PART L | Conviction of Eli Brown, the Notorious Western Bank Robber and Counter feiter?Sent to the State Prison for Five Years* Before Recorder Hackett. The session of the Court yesterday was spent in the trial ol an Indictment for grand larceny against Eli Brown, and as will be seen by the subjoined report of the case the conviction of this prisoner is an event of more than ordinary significance, the announcement of which will bo nailed with pleasure in a number of the Western States, where Brown has been known lor a num ber of years as a notorious desperado. The specific charge preferred against him was that, on or about the isth of April he stolo $j,400 in money and a gold watch from Timothy W. Puller, who was the first witness called by the prosecu. tion. He testified that he was with Brown all day, going around town drinking, ami that he lost his watch in the neighborhood of lour o'clock, on Broadway, near the Ast or House, on- a Saturday, and that he did not see Brown till the Sunday evening; when he met lilm he accused the pris oner of taking it, but he denied the accusation ; tnrce or four days alter that Detective Farley showed him tho watch at headquarters. Mr. Howe, in his cross-examination of the complain ant, said that he met Brown near tho St. Nicholas Il'itel nt nine o'clock in the morning; that, he did not see the accused steal the watch; that he was quite druuk In the afternoon, and that If he gave Brown the wateit for the purpose of getting some money on it he did not remember the occurrence, but was of tho opinion that he did not do any such thing; the money which he had was the proceeds of a sale of some property in Chic-igo. Mr. Howe asked him if he hud never been in the State Prison at Wiscon sin, whereupon he replied that he did not propose to answer tnat question unless he was obliged to, but subsequently said he hail trouble twenty years ago and was Imprisoned growing out of a difficulty had with officers because Itf the viola tion or till Fugitive Slave law. Tfil witue*? refused to state whether, when arrested in tins city a few weeks ago, it was because of swindling a Mr. Couch. Fuller said that he did not believe Brown stole the money, and before he left the stand volunteered the statement that when he got "pretty tight" the other oav in Philadelphia he stood on the street giving away a good deal or money to newsboys. Officer Farley testified tnat he arrested Brown at, the Filth Avenue Hotel on the 23d of April last, and upon Informing uim tnat he was charged with stealing $1,400 and a gold watch from Fuller he laughed at it, and said be had never seen the money nor the watch; at that time he (the de tective) knew the watch had been recovered, and he remarked to Brown, "You have been telling me lies." William H. Butts, attached to the Secret Service Department of the United states, testified that lie had known the prisoner for eighteen months; that on Saturday, the isth of April, he advanced Brown $2.'> on the watch In question, under instruction Irom his superior officer, at which time the prisoner said nothing about the uwuership of the watch. This was the case for the people. Ell Brown took the witness box In his own behalf and said he came with Mr. Butts from Indiana on the 16th of April; met with Fuller and drank at several places with htm, and that Fuller cut his watch off the guard and requested him to raise sotne money on It, which he procured from Mr. Butts. The com plainant never charged htm with stealing the watch, but had made an appointment to meet him at the Fifth Avenne Hotel, where the detective ar rested him. Assistant District Attorney Horace Russell sub jected Brown to a searching cross-exiunlnatlon w.nch brought out some startling facts. He denied ever being connected with the kcuo gang lu Indiana, but appeared to know all about their his tory; wan arrested in May, 1871, in Chicago lor alleged counterfeiting, but has not been tried yet; denied being concerned in bruakiug into the Treas ury vaults in Vermilion county, and did not drop a satchel containing $18,u00 when hotly pursned and swim over the river; admiued that he was arrested on a charge of counterfeiting at Int'ianapolis oy a detective nameu Becker, alias ?'Dutch Jim;" denied being concerned in waylaying three farmers, although he was Indicted for It; was not concerned in a bank robbery at ilinaUale and was noi. arrested in Cnicago charged with robbing a jewelry store, nor was there a reward odered in Canada of $5,iXio each for him (brown), John Mor gan, Ham Rivers, Harry Homer and "Jim" Carey ; the witness had read ubaut the Ogle brothers being counterfeiters, but denied that ho had been en gaged in counterfeiting for tho last fifteen years. Charles Heed testified that he visited fuller in Ludlow Street Jail in reference to the ease. When this witness was asked by Mr. Russell what his business was he said that he was a clerk for him self. Alter the summing up speeches and the charge of the Recorder the jury rendered a verdict of gulltv of grand larceny. Hrown was sentenced on the spot to the state i'risou for five years, the high est penalty allowed by law. COURT OF 6EKERAL SESSI3NS? PART 2. Before Judge Hutherland. A Batch of Burglars.

Akens, he swore, hit hint with a club and knocked him senseless. Akens* story was that Markham f;ot a knife out of his pocket and was about to use t on O'Brien, when, to prevent murder, he inter lered with a piece of a broom handle. Akens was sent to the l'eultentiary for six months. JEFFERSON NABKET POLICE C0J1T. A Child Bun Over and Seriously In jured? Citizens Locked Up All Night for Arresting the Driver.

M. ; went down to the flock( and on coming to the brig Margaret, of New Orlenna, the mate was standing by the cabin door; be stated that the thieves had entered the cabin and had the Captain's trunk half-way up the stairs, and that the trunk had been taken away from them by the CupUiu; went down to the end of the pier wilh the mate, and a man ou a schooner said that three men had jumped into a white boat at pier 28, and had rowed down the river; went down to the brig and lound the door of the cabin had been forced epen; re mained by the mate until Officer Kelly went down the dock in search ; be came back soon, at which time the mate, espying a white boat, said that it was the boat with the thieves in it; the witness, Officer Kelly and the mate went aronnd to pier 27 Fast River; the boat by that time had got under the dock; waited at the edge of the pier; they (the thieves) got out at the upper side of the dock, about ten feet from tho string-piece, wheH the witness showed the light of his lantern at the boat, in which he saw three men suad ing up with their oars in the boat; they hud their pistols cocked, ready to shoot : the witness cocked his pistol and Officer Kelly did the same, and firing instantly commenced on both sides; about fliteen shots were fired t<y tne men in the boat, while the witness and Officer Kelly fired about eleven shots; both the ofBcers dropped on their races at the edge of the string-piece, and before they had time to fire the thieves tired three shots at the officers ; the officers emptied all the barrels Of their pistols; the bout lud drifted about twenty foot from the dock : one of tin* men wan Bit ting ou the bottom ot the boat; they rowed out into the stream and rowed away in the direction of Wail street ferry ; a captain of a brig said that he beard one of the men In the bottom of the fcoat moan, and the others asked him If he was hurt, and he answered that "he wan gone" or "was finished." Officer Kelly corroborated the teHtlmony of Offi cer Musgrove in every important particular. Ocnuis Aiannev, one of the boys arrested, charged with being an accomplice ol "Socco," said:?
