The laws have been "again "grossly violated.
and again. arr: avenging mob have wrought a
swift retribution bn the murderer. BJr- Jo

esteemed,' aud deservedly-" so,' by all parties,
was in-the -market this" morntug in the dis
charge of" his duties, when a man of the
name of -Win.-' B.irfeer, a notorious tuffiin,

paces with him, then drawing a small bowie

off the HtWrb. As; fce struggled lo rise bis
murderer took his" hand and assisted hint
partly to Ins feet, and then struck him again
in tbe side with the ktirle; fuming it around
in-the wound until it nude a gash into which
a man's fist riight be ifnust. Barker was-
immediately arreated and conveyed lo-jafl. -
In the raorse of half au hour tbe city was in

At about aeven o'cl jck, two hours and a
half alter the murder, the court-house belly
and art the bells in the eityf rang, Tbia
eeemtd to be- the signal, kin n incredible
short space o.' time the court house and yard
were filled whir people. A motion was made
and seconded to bang tbt- murderer immediately.-
The i-enpoust: was a rush to the jail.
Tbe jailor, Mr. Blinrue, was seized, and the
keys forced from- him and-- Earlier taken to
the court-house. Here au eifort was made
by Blr-Jas, O. HurrUon, Judge Tbumas,
and Mr. Roger ILiusou, to induce the inpb
to, wait and let tbe prisoner be tried ami bung
by llit action of the law,- but their voices
were drowned in tbe. shouts uf ''Hang him!
hang him:" A beam was tlirovvn out ol the
second story window, and a - rope being
placed around their victim's Beck, he was
asked if be did not wish to pray. IJe replied
with an oath, asking what be was to pray
for, uttering threats at the time, as to what
he would do with the questioner if released.
The rope being attached lo the beam outside,
be was tovsvd troro the window, falling some
six feel. t'The rope breaking, be fell upon
the pavement, fracturing bi-i skull.
. He was egain-takva up on B ladder apd
thrown "over. Tbis lime the rope held and
lie was left swinging for two hours in- the
broad bright light ol a July Bun, in full view
of the must populous street, crowded, with
men women and. children, it was the in
tention of the rioters to leave him until six
o'clock, P. M but he was cut down at the
end af the tiaie I have mentioned aud car,
ricd away. .;Vv,w
The crowd generally dispersed as soon as
the hanging waa finished. Io an hour eve
rything was as quiet as usual; ae quiet as if
two gross violations of tbevlaw of God apd
man had not occurred within a tew hours.
Very many of those who ere considered
Mir beat citizens are said to have been en
gage in this. It waa quietly and quickly

no mention ol any disagreement between
Governor Cummin aud ihe army officers,
the lact is notorious, aiidfjrms the staple of
most of the private eorrej-pondence from

fied with the course indicated by the Peace
Commissioners, nor altogether with ihe pol
icy of sending them at all. He thought the
President's proclamation should have been
sent to him direct. -'' l-
Tbe Peace Commissioners hsve bo auth
ority lo supersede Cuauming's power as Gov
ernor, or to control the movements of the
army. They were appointed witb the ex
pectation of-tiuding Ihe Mormons in rebellion
aud taking their submission on certain con
ditions, and with no belief that Gov; Cum
niing would be established at Salt Like in
the administering ol civil functions. Hence,
tu such extent, so inuoli of their task is al
ready tultilled. Ho v far they may deem it
uecessary to proceed beyond this point has

and speak amoijg so many ladies and gentle

speaking were not such as ought be ex

made fur the fact that many' were in a larger
room than usual, but teachers ought to speak
distinctly evreywhere. . respectfully sug
gest, that good ; readiiij a d eppafcing are
worthy and ought to receive the special at
ten! ion of the Association. Teachers may
be excused lor. repeating, tley must often do
this in order that pupils may remember, if
Miy beooiue habit, but they should never
speak without having something to say.
Every sentence should clearly express a

clear and pointed. In some of these things
a few ol Ihe members might improve.

Horrors of the Middle Passage. A

less than six hundred and fifty Africans had
been crowded into this, small vessel. The
utmost compression compatible with life
was resorted to, and, had not a large portion
been mere children, they could not bave beeti
stowed away. The writer says the follow -ia

a ring was put on one ancle, to which an
iron bar was attached, which reached up to
the body, and to which ihe manacles were
fastened, which were put on thier wrists.--Thua

announced the success of tbe undertaking
in a letter to tbe Kilkenny Moderator, in
wbich he says:
"Although I have not taken flight in the
achreden which name I have given to my
aerial chariot I may with confidence and
truth announce to you and the world the
success of its principle" from results I ob
tained by an experiment three days ago.
Having made some little improvement in
the plan, of starting the acbredeni which
consisted in applying a crook to the tcp of
It; and then hooking it to a Cord supported
between two poles, in the manner df a swing
and hating raised it about two feel from the

yards and giving it a slight pull forward, it
started off, then elevated itself in the air;
and after going a short distance alighted ih
the most gentle rtaniler. It acted la this
way in consequence of tbe tail not having
feed fastened down. By this experiment it
must be considered that the principle is ful
ly established, as well as the perfect man
ner of starting it. When I bave made a few
more experiments and found out the weight

. Hon. John M. Berphisel, delegate to Con

The Tiffin Tribune says that the
Connrussionors of Seneca county nav
made arrangements for the te keep
ing of the pubiftijunds, under the new
law, at a cost of about iA0Q. Thi
amount must necessarily be explod
er! in procuring a burglar-proof safe
and constructing a fire-pioof vault.
The Tribune also remarks;
On Wednesday, of last week, Geo.
II. Ileniing, Esq., tendered his resig
nation to the Commissioners, . as
Treasurer of Seneca .county; this e
vent was owing partly to the (act that
he did not wish to serve under the
new law, which took effect" July 1st,
and partly because he wishes to en
gage iii" other pursuits, in which the
profits are not so disproportioned to
the labor and risk incurred.' Mr. Hem
ing bas all along declared that he
would not serve as Treasurer, under
the new law, and his resignation,
which seems so surprising to some, ia
merely the carrying into effect of this
determination. " '" -
