The I-aCro-se IK mot-rut has the fol lowing about Hickman, the man who, in Chandlersville, HI., recently killed his wife by crushing her skull with a club, and who afterwards cut her throat from ear to ear with a butcher kuite: Tiiis man was born near Athens, Tenn., when he lived until he arrived at the year of manhood. He had never been known to do anything be yond what might be thrown into the general miscellany of boyish reckloss iiees. His social status was not above par, and aracng his female acquaint ances was Nwicy Marshall, whom he married. Ten or twelve years of married life resulted in a family of five children, two of whom are now living near the scene of the late tragedy. The first of this matrimonial existence was very wretched, and the life of his wife was in constant jeopardy. giiB mothtr-in-law, Mrs. Marshall, relates J frightful story, which in fiend ish brutality is beyond anything ordi nary human v. ;ekedness could con ceive. It is this: About two years after his marriage with ancy, he one night conceived the idea of going to bis father's, some eighty miles distant from his own home. His wife was at this time critically atcietite, but wholly inhuman about this, he saddled two horses, and ordered his wife to mount one of them. She silently obeyed, and they started on a dreary journey. They had gone but a short distance when Mrs. Hickman was compiled to dismount. And on the roadside she gave birth to a child, which a few miles farther on died in her arms while on horseback. The brutal husliand dismounted, dug a hole in the ground with a stick, into which he tumbled the naked remains of his new-born liabe. Then he remounted his horse and rode on with his half dead wife beside him, to his lather's house. Twelve vears ago next March Hick man murdered his wife, Nancy. She was K ing in bed just recovering from confinement. Her prostration had angered Hickman to a woeful extent. When the physician was called Hiek mau seized a knife, and going to the yard threatened a terrible vengeance if the thing occurred again. He brood ed over his wife's sickness, and day by day, "nursed his wrath to keep it warm," until at last an unquiet word from his wife, brought death and de struction to her. lu his rage Hick man seized a flat-iron, and hurling it at her, inflicted shocking injuries crushing her forehead, uud striking the infant ujsjn the head broke its lit tle skull. The death of the babe and ;s mother sjieedily followed this out rage, an;! both were buried in the same grave. Hickman fled from the house to es cape the penalty of the laws, and was followed bv his little sou Aaron, eight vears of age. The father discovering this, turned uoon him, and, with a heavy club, beat the child aliout the head until his skuli was fractured and hefell insensible, leaving the boy, as he supisised, dead. Hickman started for the woods, where he lived several days upon food and nourishment sent him by his father. The officers of the county started in pursuit of him, and, after several days' diligent and eager search, succeeded in finding him hidden away in the un derbrush. He was taken into custody and lodged in jail. Soon after Ijll 1 HMll'il arrest, he was arraigned for trial on an indictment charging him with the murder of his wife and cluid. Jin- trial progressed, and at its end Hickman u as acquitted of the murder en the plea ot insanity, and sent to the Jack-onville lunatic asylum, where he remained about four months. Then he was HMMMd, and emigra ted to Illinois, where he took up his abode, about a mile and a hall from ( ir.iuol. r vilie, Cass county. Before he Hit TeaBewee, as our re porter learned from itk brother-in-law Hickman murdered a Hitic in cold Wood, and theu fled. After reach in" Illinois .'to became p issessed of about eighty acres o .:nd, fifteen which are now under cultivation, But Hu-kujan himself was a lazy, indole! fellow, whose dissolute habits uufitted him for work, and he lived upon the support given him by the rent of a portion of his laud, and the MMKfOf his sou Aaron, whom he had once at tempted to murder. And now he again has repeated his tragic sensation of years ago, and occupies a felon's cell. PAUL SCHOEPPE. European Oiiclosures Letter frcm Prof. Gneist. cf Berlin. Our readers remember the case of Dr. Schoeppe, condemned to death for tlie murder of his fiance, Miss Stein eeke, at Carlide, Paris, and all are familiar with the fact that he has been granted time for a new trial. His eountrymen have greatly and earnest ly enlisted themselves in his behalf. Among others, a Qet'HUUI resilient of .New York wrote to Prof. Kudolf Gneist, of Berlin, a pr"minent jurist and author, MMV of the Prussian Chamber of lieputies, and of the North Qu HIM Parliament. The re ply ol the learned ProV-sor will be lound below. It is of extraordinary character, considering the wide extent this agitation in favor of Dr. Paal Schoeppe had assumed in this coun try, and the imjMrtauce which at tached to it in consequence: Your honored letter of November 27th, I received five days ago, and the paKrs ltelonging to it OHM days tfO, and in great haste 1 did what was possible to sove the life of a country man MMM unjustly condemned. This was not eMy. .ince in these days the sessions of the Chambers and my participation at them and in com mittee occupied the whole day. To obtain the opinion of the judicial faculty wa impo-siMe, far the IT Oil that the subject for a tidiciai revision was not at hand, mm neither the course of th" judicial proceeding nor the evidence taken on trial was before us, not even la tl: form of newspaper rejwrts. It was oniy possible to de termine that the chemieal and medi cal evidence for tlie establishment of the fact was unsatisfactory and erro neous. To this end 1 submitted the case to the Society of Jurists here, who immediately selected I special committee to consider what steps may possibly be taken in favor of Paul Schoeppe. in this several of our judicial experts nave jrttdiy taken part, especially the court physician, Prof. Limann, and the chemist, Prof. Bonnetischein, whose high authority will be recognized also in the United States. These gentlemen concur with the opinions of American experts, as published in your newspapers, that tlie process adopttsd for the discovery of prussic acid and morphium in the body was inefficient and utterly erro neous. Our exjs-rts couhl literally subscrilye to the criticisms published of that process. Those criticisms come from men whose names are well known also among ourselves, and are generally recognized as experts. Yet these opinions had already been laid before the Attoruey-Gencral and the Governor, and a mere repetition of them could not add to their authority. But the opinion of the Attorney-Gfcu-eral declares those, criticisms as not dceisive, for HMM against which, from the stand-iKiint of the law as it is among you, but little can la' said. In German legislation we have bind ing provisions liow to proceed to establish the fact in cases of murder, tHiisonin. etc. I'ntler our laws and the practice, as it ha developed itself, I such unseienuuc, iauny proui oi un tact, as in the case of Schoeppe, could not occur. So far as 1 know your laws contain no such binding pro visions, but treat the proof of the tact as anv other part of trie proof ot guilt and then leave the whole to the ove reign judgment of the jurors. This Judgment is shaped by the totality of the proas-dings and proofs, and it can not be denied that in the evidence produced, circumstances of great mo ment are shown. (Prof. Gneist here enters into a somewhat detailed ac count of these circumstances pointing against Schoeppe.) This makes it imtiosrttble for a foreign jurist to give, with good conscience, au opinion pro nouncing the verdict of the jurors as hasty and unconscionable. The to talitv of all accompanying circum stances may establish iu the mind of a conscientious man the fact of poison ing, even If the assisting chemists and medical men had proceeded still more erroneously than they did in the prej ent case. Public opinion forms its judgment of guilt or innocents' from general im pressions. But this circumstance is also unfavorable for Paul Schoeppe, should he stvk the assistants' of his countrymen, especially here in Ber lin. Our court of jurors, some six or seven years ago, made the acquaint ance of a certain Paul Schoeppe as a most dangerous criminal, and sen tenced him for grand larceny and forgery to the penitehtiary. (German papers assert that this Paul Schoeppe. who was thus convicted at Berlin, had been secretary to Count Blankensee and robbed him of 27,000 thalers.) Christian name, surname, age and personal description agree fully with those of your Paul bchoepjie. His rather was'a country parsou, enjoying the reputation of great piety, who, in the same case, was convicted of re ceiving stolen goods. This statement seems again to agree with the descrip tion of your Paul Schoeppe and his father. In our police records it is fountl that father and son had emi grated to America. The State's At torney, who prosecuted the case of eair former Paul Schoeppe, makes special mention of the fact that the forgery ol documents charged in your country agrees with the method which our Paul Schoeppe was habitually em ploying. Our records here contain a series of such documents, with well executed imitations of the handwrit ing of others. You will not blame public opinion if it presumes the iden tity of the two persons with tolerable certainty. I will send you a few of our local papers, from which you will perceive that though people have taken an interest in Schoeppe, public opinion very soon turned away lrom him.

The Views cf Secretary of the Treasury Bautwell. Mr. Iloutwell, Secretary of the Treas ury, in a lecture delivered in Wash ington on Monday, thus reviews the present financial condition of the Gov ernment. He. said our present condi tion is peculiar. Tlie revenue is large, and lift- r the payment of the ordinary expenses, penBt.,nj id interest, we have a surpius of $iod,00o,oiju huiiu ally for the reduction of the principal of 1 he debt. The treasury Ls tree from eniharas.d:;ent. We have no occa sion to borrow a iiuliuv fw any pur pose whatever. Provision rim pe easily made fr the payment of the lO- boada, amounting to $19,400,000, in lb?-!, wi.en they will be first re deemable, or they m-y U ;;ostioned for thirty years more, as public niier ggt may' require. The amount of 28, MO, 000 duo in lssi can be paid at maturity. For the present we art: safe, at least n financial affairs. The proposition for a new loan has one purpose, ami one purpose ouiy lie reduction of the interest account. If this cannot be accomplished, we !ive no occasion to intercede in tlie markets of the world. )ur power to place a new loan at a low rate of interest, is, in my opinion, wholly dependent uikiii the marni tudeoYour.surplus revenue. Nothing but a menace of payment will induce holders of 0 per cent, bonds to surren der them snd adept a bond bearing a lower rate of interest. H you reduce the rate of interest M that it is barely tijual to PaOOt the necessary expensea and occupy the Interest, holders of 'ii bonds will resolutely resist every . :i ,; t to ndrjee them to accept a lower interest. Our new interest account, excluding P. i iiic Kailroud bonds, is f 1J.",,(.k.hj,(mhj. Tin- Government has already bought 180,000000 of their own bond;, interest on which is paid (o the tpttaaror, leaving the actual interest at about, $12U,0ti0,iio(i. A reduction of the in tereat account $18,000,0000 a year will enable u, if we chouse, to make this the basis of m sinking fund to pay the principal ol the interest-bearing debt in :j." years. If we reduce the revenue to the Decenary expenses of the (Jov enmfijtf and the amount needed to pay the interest tit the present rate, that is to say, a saving of l$,IHX),0ij annually in the amount of interest, will, in .'"i years, with accumulated interest, be tijual to the bonded debt of the united States, Ought there then, in the presence ol such a possible advantage, to beany doubts as to the wisdom of maintain ing the revenue at higher ratts lor one or twg or even three years if nets sary'.' With lajpi rve!iue for three years the result is surely accomplished in one Way or the other; and if the public accept the BSW bond at a lower rate, the aijostioa is settleo in $vpr of the government, and if they decline the opportunity, Ihe revenues will UqSjdMS the principal of tM debt and the interest wiil disappear pro portionately. Ill either case the country sueeueds. If, however, we at QU08 reduce rev enues till they are suitieient lor of ii nary expenses pensions and interest on the debt, and public creditors shall consequently, refuse to receive a new bond, ai lower rate of interest, what will he tiio condition of the couiiin'? Thirty-live years ImmMQ it will ir.ivo paid MJ&tMjHn of inter est uon the public debt, and the en tire principal uiii then be unpaid. Again, I say it is not sufficient for a nation that'it is politically independ ent of foreign or hostile powers. It is not auWi.iiwt that Mm people are all citizens; that they are Jreo and tipuai, or even that political power is in their hao'ls. To all these must be added national tiuancial iiulependeiice. Thi America has not. This she cannot have, until she diminishes perceptibly her public debt, and renders its pay ment certain v. it bin a generation. I dare not cite examples, but Ihe nations are many that are crippled in their policy and retarded In me de velopment of their industrial pursuits by tlie magnitude ol their debts. These examples should be u warning to us. The public debt is the only se rious result of the war oi' auy consid erable magnitude now remaining, but it is a result so serious as to demand some preseut sacriiice for future pub lic good. They are sacrifices, how ever, which do not interfere with the general prosperity of the country; nor l- the exigency aq exact as to leave us without opportunity of relrieving, from time to time, those interests which are most heavily burdened. On one iutni), hy courage aud manltil acceptance temporarily of a burden, i inseierable no doubt, but not insu perable, we secure permanent pros perity and financial independence of tlie country; on the other hand, it we shrink from our task of duty, may I not say, of mastering these difficul ties, at'once we increase the aggregate of taxation, and leave to another gen eration completion of work which should h ive MMj done exclusively by our own? An Unanswerable Reason. There is a story of an old hunter who came into Chicago one day, and after wandering about for awhile, looking at the public buildings ami other improvements, got into a chat with one of the inhabitants. In the course of which he mentioned that he had once had a chance to buy all the ground that the city was built upon for a pair of old boots. " And why didn't you buy it? " " Well, I hadn't the boots Just then," was the old man's calm reply. FROM WASHINGTON.

A SOLUTION OF THE TELEGRAPH Ml DOLE. A solution of the telegraphic mud dle will probably be found in the seiz ure ot ail the lints in America by the Government. This measure has been iu contemplation for a long time. Its delay is to be attributed alone to the ' distorted reorts iu ravor of Radical ism communicated through the dis patches under the present system. By j monopolizing the dispatches per tele- i graph, the Goverumunt would be able , to tincture even Democratic papers With their atrocious calumnies against j the patriotic party, anil a helpless peo pie. But many are of the opinion that j iu this respect matters could hardly be in a worse condition. FREAiuVr AVI) KL PASO RAILROAD. ' Gen.

Funis- ' wonh, for the admission of Virginia, doc- not nus-t the approbation of a Majority of the comniitU'e. It was formally ngretsl to, however, by the more conservative Republicans, like Famsworth, for the purpose of getting some measure befon- the House for liie admission of the State, and with a distinct understanding that a substi tute might lie offered in the House and a wide latitude allowed for de bate. The Conservative Republicans uniting with Ihe Democrats hojte to be be able to pass Ringham's resolu tion when the House is brought to a vote. Whether this is done or not, there is little, if any, prospect for the passage of the bill reported bv the committee, as a majority oi tne J louse are opposed to imposing any new con dlttOM. It is generally admitted now I by intelligent and unbiassed Republi- I aaab, in both Houses, that nothing is j to be gained, even iu a party sense, by imposing conditions on the late rebel j Stutes. The case ot .Tennessee is eiteu as an instance of the folly of the bind-ing-up polley. OEOROIA. It Is confidently expected that the Democrats and Conservatives can con-; trTil the Legislature of Georgia. The onlv danirer apnrchended is that Gen. , Terry will exclude from the Legisla ture, on. one pretence or another, the persons whom Btilloek cannot use, in sufficient numbers to assure the as cendancy of Bullock's friends. If Gen. Terry acts as a soldier, not a jMjlitical partisan, white men will rule in Georgia. The Washington correspondent of Be St. Louis Deiiu n-rnt (very Radical) says: The situation in Georgia is re garded as very grave, and important telegrams have been going back and forth from this point to Atlanta in great number. Some of tho facts in the matter were given last night. Gov. Bullock telegraphs that twelve of tlie members of the Legislature who took the oath committed perjury in so doing; that the Democrats are jubilant uud defiant; that they over throw loyalists under Terry; restore one disqualified member aud seat others, and that the case is critical and demands immediate attention from the President. - Capt. Bryant, one of the members of the lower branch, and late postmaster at Augusta, sends a long dispatch, saying that he stands by his record as a Union soldier and Republican, and has resigned his postoftice in order to serve his State, and that no matter what anybody charges, he intends re maining in his party and doing what he can to purify it. He charges Bul lock with corruption, with acting ille gally in the organization of the Legis lature, vith looking to some selfish ends in being willing to jeopardize everything else for the sake of secur ing his own election to tho United States Senate. He says that if Bul lock permits the organization of the General Assembly it will promptly ratify the XVth Amendment, elect anti-Bullock SonaUri, and fully com ply with the requrasnents of the re construction laws. The tenor of other dispatches from Atlanta, including something from Gen. Terry, is that Bullock is tryintr his best to get elected to the United States Senate. The General tele graphed that there was considerable excitement, but says that things are comparatively quiet. He further in quires of the War Department what he may do in the case of a sheriff who is nuiking a good tleal of trouble, and Sherman responds that he may be removed in Terry's discretion. Terry has telegraphed inquiring what might be done in cases where members of the Legislature were un seated, and Sherman was at the Capi tol the other day consulting with Sen ator Trumbull and other lawyers. He has telegraphed to Terry that per sons receiving the next highest num ber of votes for seats should be sworn into them iu accordance with the laws of Georgia. The President has in structed Terry to proceed with the ut most caution in the whole work of re organization, but to, use decisive meas uras if they become necessary. It may lie well enough to add that as Bullock is nothing but Provisional Governor, ho is subject to removal by the commanding general. LETTER FROM JACKSON, MISS. Politics--The Senatorrhip -Removal t tbe State Capiat The FreeCraen Le Can CanThe German Opera. Jam s x, Mis;., January 11, lSVu. BiUoeB Appeal: Thus far the most conservative of the Conservative party have not had caus" to seriously regret the election of Alcorn and the "nig ger" ticket. Tlie proceedinirs of the Legislature to-day (the fourth of the session) have not amounted to much not to put too line a point upon it, no harmful acts have yet lieen enacted. Yesterday was mair.ly taken up in swearing iu Senator i, passing resolu tion relative to organization, and the election of oihcers. ijenaior Hancock temporarily presided ovor tbe deliber ations of the Cppr-r House, bat it Ls thought that the Lieutenant-Governor will assume his prerogative and oc cupy the chair on Monday. The blacks in the House yesterday were universal in the ei.pres-.ion that the oath to be taken by Judges of the Su? preme Court of the 8tate was not stringent enough, but finally subsided on the assurance from their leaders that the l4oath was all right." The contested t Benatofii will not be strong. GeiTTAiiit's Is almost certain to be elected. The psup'e of Vtakfbnrg are mak ing vigorous efibrta to procure the re moval of fiie State Capital from here to the. Heroic City. I am loid that a resolution to that effect will lie introduced aud strong ly supported (luring the present session of the Legislature. ( f course, all Jackson is hard down on the pro ject, but U is thought that the removal will n;cet t;e wishes i,f the people of the largest portion of the State. Re port hath it that Yiekshurg wiii not lie satisried with the State capitol only, but will contest with St. Louis as the place for Federal headipiarters. May she get both. Despite' the demoralising effects of the late rod-hot political campaign, the freed men are In tolerable humor for work, making contracts for the coming year with commendable alac ritywhen their rather exhorbttaat demands for wages are poro, plied with. The working force of the State will. numerically, be about the same as last year, but greater, 1 think, in point of eflicfeacy, The meeting of the Legislature has brought to us two or three traveling troujies of show people: notably, a company from your city, which gives promise of doing very well in a pecu niary jHiint of view.

By the 'way, is it en regit for a very obese woman to do VittUty in that much-abused Can Can? Grau's German Opera promises us a visit about the first of February. From the extended notices which have appeared in the ATPKAL during their Memphis engagement, It is to be presumed that a rich musical treat is in store for us. Adieu WAKDKBXB. BOSTON.
