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."
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."
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
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

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.
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.
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"
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.
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.
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.
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
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

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.

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

| Conviction of Eli Brown, the Notorious
Western Bank Robber and Counter
feiter?Sent to the State Prison for Five
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
William H. Butts, attached to the Secret Service
Department of the United states, testified that lie

on Saturday, the isth of April, he advanced Brown

Irom his superior officer, at which time the
prisoner said nothing about the uwuership of the
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

counterfeiters, but denied that ho had been en
gaged in counterfeiting for tho last fifteen years.

business was he said that he was a clerk for him
