Assassination of the
Family, near Paris.
Confession of Traupmann. the Mur
derer. All Iaris, indeed all France, is just
now excited over the murdtr of a
whole family named Kinck. There
wa the father, mother (enriente), and
live, children, one of these almost a
grown young man. At first it was
supposed that the lather and this son
had perpetmtcd the murder, but sub
sequent search revealed the father's
remains, and later that of the son,
both of whom had fallen victims to a
most diabolical plot by one Traup
mann, whereby he designed and did
possess himself of the available means
of the Kinck family. The wretched
assassin has Iieen arre. led. How and
what way, we will let the Paris cor

A few nijrht.s ainre a stranger was
seated quietiy at a small tavern in
Havre. There were several other
persons present, and no one would
have imagined that to the history of
any of them there belonged aught of
unusual interest, incidentally a po
liceman, on the lookout for deserters
from the merchant ships in the Lartmr,
made his appearance, askingthe usual
questions of the guests, and raajsaataag
(bom to give their names and exhibit
their ipers. The stranger was evi
dently disconcerted ; he was a travel
ler: he nad no passport; a (msspjrt
was not necessary to enable one to
travel. Ilis entin' demeanor was o
Kuspieiou.- that thepoliivmau, on mere
ground of gmeral e.jediency, r
quested him to come along to the
nearest jioliee uflice and there explain
bis position. The stranger made no
opposition, and the two went of!
peacefully together. But the officer,
perhaps willing toamuse himself with
the fears of the other, whiied away
the time with such little pleasantries
as auggerted a possible complicity of
hb comrade's in the Pant in assassina
tion, that the latter suddenly took to
his iii-a, and dashing uihii a quay,
ended Ui dight by leaping into the
water. All tliu -oul ot the polioeniau
wa now aroused. He saw before him
a real, an unprecedented criminal.
An exert in swimming plunged after
the drowning man, and a terrible con
llict ensued in the water. The pur
sued seemed determined not only to
destroy himself, but to drag down with
him his would-bo tireserver; nor was
it until lue was nearly extinct in the
breast of each that both were finally
brought to dtore. It was some time
before sensible animation could be
restored totthesetwo; but in the mean
time the officer had made some start
ling discoveries. On the person of
the stranger he lounO the title deeds
and other valuable papers of the Kinck
htmilv. as well as other articles that
have been proved to have belonged to
them notably ,t wo watches. Of course
that man was at once secured, and in
due aattsan, being subjected to the
i-ustuaMMry interrogatories, he made

earned that the deed had been discov

Mtreet of Paris. They agreed to rt
rompaay, but to meet again at Havre,
wheuee they should sail for Arneriea;
and the Kinck papers found onTraup
ruana's pmnn were entrusted to him
tor safety's sake by the younger
Kinck. And this is the sutstance of
this raanarkahie oonfewion.

united with .Liberalism. His words
had not that tone of absolute submis

the priests of France, on France, al
most as much as on Ireland, the Ul

dioceses as that of Orleans are ruled

the oid Liberalism ol France, inspire

In the encounter Lamiuefiais was so 1
utterly overthrown by the members of
nis own cnurcn, mat ne cut nose tne
ties which bound him, not only to
Koine, but to revealed religion itself.
Laeordaire died while the struggle
was yet at its hottest; and Moutalem
lert's record has yet to be written.
To the same Itand ol enthusiasts, al
though he occupies a less exalted
place, belongs the present Archbishop
of Paris. Monseigneur Darltoy. An
ardent Liberal as well as an ardent
Catholic, Monseigneur Darboy has
more than once been the object of Pa
pal suspicion, and has been forced to
reaffirm his devotion to the Holy See.
But his chief offense was the admis
sion of Pere Hyaciuthe to the Cathe
dral of Notre I lame. To that historic
church the intellect and the religious
fervor of Paris Hocked when attraettsl
by such eloquence as that of the bare
footed Carmelite. And the eager
crowd was not disappointed. Lettensl
and unlettered, academicians and y
ricm, felt the fascination of the bril
liant preacher. After the great church
had heeu filled in every part, a man
of short stature, and singularly
bright, prepossessing face, would
ascend the pulpit and address
the expectaut multitude. His
oratory was strikingly natural. It was
very much like the lest sieaking of
theVorum transferred to lUf sanctuary
and made holy by the infusion of sa
cred themes. It was the reverse of
ntirlfnlantl ! Ahmtthe, Church tie
Father did not say much; about do
trines he said les.-; and about the cler-
go he said little that was not a relaike.
' m the other hand, he made the aisles
of Xotre Paatlt resound with the
most uncompromising LwaVaUsani in
words of burning eloquence he taught
men that they owed duties to each
other as citizens, and that as fathers
of famili-s they were dowered with
rights which even the Church could
uot take away. The claim of the cler
gy to " direct " the conscience of the
wife, ami to set aside the authority of
the husband, was a pretension w hich
Pere Hyacinths denounced with that
peculiarly cutting, iMt-aus personal,
eloquence which man can wield when
assailing the members of their own
order. He a erted the right of the
husband to Ik- supreme in his own
household, and the duty of the citizen
to obey the laws of his own country.
L'nmoved by the threats of Kome, he
raised up that old banner of French
Liberalism on which was laarilhisj
devotion to the family and to the na
tion. Without directly atssilins; the
priestly pretensions of the L'ltrauion
tane party, he set forth doctrines
which made Uiose pretensions nullaud
void. Hence the men of France
listened to tly? French preacher
with undisguised rapture. A re
ligious creed which did not com
pel them to break of all visi
ble connection with Home, and yet
left them masters in their own house
holds and citizens of their own coun
try, was the very thing for which they
pined. On the other hand, the I (tra
montane party of Paris w ere hiriuus
against the discourses of the Carmelite.
All his eloquent denunciations of tho
vices which are preying on tho life of
France were Kwerless to still the
tierce cry of heresy. The preacher
was assailed with that cry; and at
last, even the courageous Archbishop
of Paris so far bent before the storm
that he put an end to the series ol
Carmelite discourses, and invited the
chief rival of Pere Hyaciuthe to till
the pulpit of Notre Dame. The new
preacher Ren Felix, strove hard to
undo the mischief wrought by his
gifted predecessor. A Jesuit, and
dowered with the graces of his own
most accomplished order, he lent all
the riches of hU rhetoric to yilify
Protestantism, and to preach the duty
of uncompromising submission to
Holy Church, as represented by its
chief bishop. Hut the ehort was m
vain. The echoes of Ilyacinthe's elo
quent still lingered on men's ears.

An Appeal for the Removal of the
Confederate Dead at
By correspondence and other means,
it has lieen drought to the sjiecial at
tention of the Hollywood Memorial
Association of Richmond, that over
three thousand Confederate soldiers
are buried on and near the hattie-lield
of 1 .ettysburg.
;ivid Wills, Ksip, President of the
National Cemetery Company, says in
a letter toOen. FiUhugh Ijee: "There
has never been any action by the
Board of Man-.igers of the .Soldiers'
National t'emet ry Company here in
refcrence to tie disposition of tho re
mains of the Southern dead lying on
this battle-field, either it there any
action (.vmtemfilutM. The charter of
the Association provides only for the
interment of the remains of those who
fell in defence ol the i'nion.
" There should be something done
with the remains of the Southern sol
diers. There are about not) marked
graves, and these are fast liecoming
obliterated. Their names might ls
preserved, and the remains gathered
together into a cemetery or burying
ground, if any one would take the
matter in hand."

oflW ample grounds in their Ceme

Nasiij ii.i.k, Oetolier 10. A large
numlier'of persons have arrived here
to attend the Races and Fair, w hich
commence Monday; and much disap
pointment is felt lccausc Mr. Fillmore
cannot be present at the Fair.
Nashvili.k, Oetols?r 1.1. The busi
ness of the two Houses tc-:lay was
not of a very interesting charac
ter. The. charter of Milan, sujh
posed to lie an Italian city of some
historical note, not far away
Capria, where Hannibal, the
Abraham of blacks in by-gone ages,
bcame enervated by luxurious modes
of life to which the people ad
dictedthe charter of this ancient vil
lage, where the Appkai. litis many
abiding places, was remodeled. Milan
is at last divested of shackles w hich,
I imagine, were imposed to enrich
Radical placemen and adventurers.
That SUite and Federal ideas, facts and
laws, as I hear, might lie compound
ed, not long ago the Radical Legisla
ture made rules of evidence in both
courts uniform. This purposa lias
been defeated. The bills to repeal acts
enforcing the acceptance of test oaths
by candidates for oflices, and abro
gating an act defining tho qualifica
tions of jurors, passed a third reading
in the Senate.
As I anticipated some days ago, in
a snecisl teleirram, a bill was intro
duced to-day to aooli-h increase,! pen
alties for the non-payment of taxes.
The impression prevails iu the Senate
and House, thatil burdens of taxation
were Iftsseped., greater sums would
flow Into the Treasury. This idea
doubtless suggested by the sad
condition to which the State Treasury
was reduced yesterday by Representa
tive Caldwell and another penniless
member from your district. GaldweU
was hard up. The House bail ordensl
the Treasurer to fork over to any dis
tressed member, if ravenously dunned
by his wash-woman, or any other
man. Caldwell was the first victim
of imjiecuniosity, and rushed head
long up Capitol hill and down iiit-;
the Treasurer's vaults. His friend
er..llr,u-uJ anil n it h mi ietv unknown
before, they presented their lie-
the iin!er.swMiigaaajjBaaaa
sovereignty of Tennessee. The
Treasurer blushed. -He eonfessod the
validity of the claims but pleaded
poverty. "I have," he said, " only
eighty dollars, and can pay neither of
you in fuH, anil if you will divide
fairly and nv nothing, you may
empty the treasury of Tennessee."
The terms and money were accepted,
and the State's strong box is as empty
as a balloon, and the more gas in the
halls nbove the le-s gold and ktlfeav
baeks in Hit- cellars betOW. This tnri
dent begat much philosophical inquiry
into measures ofcaxation. Not a few
h.-lieve that ex' essive per centages
beget much popular dishonesty, and
that greater rej juues would arise
from inoilerate tj'Hn burdensome lev
ies. This philW iphy is well illus
trated in Memp, is. Many cannot pay,
and the very we;htof taxation makes
sales of prop'Jty impossible. f
Radicalism haC not been destroyed
the tax laws uof Tennessee would
soon have opcr'ted, as iu Memphis,
as a legal sysh-in of contiscatiou by
wltich the jieopje would have beer)
crushed, roblied and ruined, and place
holders rendered fabulously rich.
Rest assured that there will be no
sijuinting at repudiation, and no sucl(
purpose is contemplated; but that lw
revenues of the State may be in
creased, burdens upon the js-ople will
be lessened, and every jiosslble ln-ilui-enient
proffered to Immigration.
The exemption laws will be lila-ral-ized
to prevent the exodus of farming
classes, and to invite farming popula
tions from adj. ie, nt States.

MAimiD, (X'tober 14. The Kpoea

The intimations made by Oen. Sickles
are received with the good will which
one nation owes to another, with
w hich it is bound by ties of amity. It
is preauaacd that the American Gov

The day was beautiful. Every tree

little boys and girls with rosy face
that shone among the leaves like
ripening fruit. Every garden bloomed
with pretty women. Sidewalks and
curbs, iron railings and stone balus
trades, balconies ami hay windows
were crowded by troops and groups
of people, and at times we had (mite
a snow storm of showering white
cambric. The bands made the air
melodious. Flags floated royally and
loyally from steeple and roof; and
garlands, the last autumnal plunder
ing of the fields, decorated door-ways
and street-crossings.
The Senatorial Question the Most

A Woman Cattle Rcpwter.
Miss Middy Morgan, of the New
York Timet, has entered a field of that
domain more especially appertaining
to man than any other that of the
cattle market ana agriculture. Three
times a week she visits the pens of
newly arrived pigs, sheep and oeeves
in the suburbs, and discourses learn
edly their condition and current value.
When a sale of horses takes place she
is on the spot with a critical eye, and
her lucubrations upon crops are quite
as luminous as Ihoae of her male con
temporaries. Hones and other do
mastic animals have been a passion
with Miss Morgan from early child
hood. As Rosa Bon hour reproduces
them to life on can va,-, so does aho
stamp their attributes with her pen.

lotte Cushman, and frequently rode

Her dashing equestrianism attracted
the attention of Prince Poniatowski,
a literary aud musical amateur,
who obtained an introduction to her.
Struck by her criticism on horses, and
her keen appreciation of their points
he mentioned her name to King
Victor Emanuel, who desired to gain
her acquaintance. She was, there
lore, introduced by the British Am
bassador. The King displayed his
regard by commissioning her to buy
his h irses for a long tune, she subse
quently came to the L'nlted States,
and Mr. Marsh, the American Minis

chief editor of the Time. That gen-1

pointing her upon his staff.
