Halt, The Washington Telegraph publishes as follows the ironfeeeiou ol Robert Norwood, tbe murderer of Miss Mollis Holt. Ha aald tbat betweei, himself and Miss Holt there had long exited a matrimonial engax-emect, and thst on account of the opposition of her relatives, a consumma tion of tbe enxsgement had been pre vented ; that oa the dsy of the killing he had met bar at the house of Mrs. Kelson, where she was spending the day, and bad a long talk with her upon the subject "it peraietsotly refusing to marry blm contrary to the wishes of her relatives; that when he left the house or Mrs X leon be b ad determined to inaks another effort, and lor this purpose waited on the road side for bar return to her mother's. When she oaaaa HI ATTACKED HER, and hi aB persisting in her refusal to marry tin. fa "fad upon her four times, i hen ueat hei brains out with the butt of .h BtekaL and ataited off; but fearing that thrre might sS be life enough in her to expos hlco, he returned and cut ter throat. When the discovery wss made and thi alarm given, ha wont with the grief-stricken mother, and wept with the mother ever the ruin be humeelf bad wrought. on sea dat Moaarwo, while Norwood waa being watched and guarded, we unieratand that about one i am!.-- armed men forced the guard, took the now desperate man to a ooa veoient liuib, and there buna him by the neck until be wss dead, dead, dead. And thus ended the most hotrible tragedy that we have ever been called upon to chroni cts. It Is proper that we should state that the young man Norwood waa of reepae -a-bls rajulv. and had been generally ra- 1 as a wormy ana deserving ycuu regarded! The Miner oounterfaiting case has gone to tbe jury. The Russian fleet la ordered to remain hire for tbe present. Ex Sheriff O'Brien waa a.wlinaaa before the grand jury yeaterday. The rumor tbat Tweed waa arrested and jicflned in the Metropolitan hotel la untrue.

Tbe rumor of the Inrftctmen'. of Mayor Hall ia atiU bcuaved. and it is stw tnat the papers have been returned to the jury for some correction, and will be soon Too property of tbe New York Prtnt 1 r g corn pany was recently seized bv tbe sheriff on a snit brought by the Osaaa bank on a protested note, and will be sird st public auction on Friday, Janu ary 5;h. Tbe steamer Cuba, hence for Liverpool, while going Sown the lower bay yester day morning, struck on the "knolls," where she now remains. The aosst wrecking oomrsuy hsvs sent a steamer to her assistance.

It la probable the t counsel for the people will soon make an m tack upon Tweed's nnoertv. A! read v snDllcaflon has been made to restrain Tweed lrom disposing of bis property, sud it la expected that Tweed's lswyera are about t j move to bavs this spplicallon denied. Tbe enrolment of Democrat Ic voters under the Bsform Democracy commenoed in the several wares Tuesday evening, tbe effect being to secure the names of all men who are Ormooraas, and who from their enrolment will be entitled to have a voice ia the political primaries. Corporation-Counsel O'Gorman states (hat he will take steps for tbe re moval of James M. Sweeny and Hugh Smith as commissioners for the ex tension of the Rlrer-side park on sc oount of their absence from city. These gen-iemen be said had been absenting taeniae! vea to evade tbe result of tbe action of the grand J u y. The statement that Boas Tweed cannot be found has not yet been authoritatively denied It appears tbat Terre nee Farley cocci- ded to witbd-aw his ball bend 'or Tweed, but sheriff Brennan informtd Farley that he would be held responsible wi n oil er bondsmen until Tweed waa delivered over to the sheriff. Farley hta busily endeavored to find Tweed, but un successfully. Y eater lay noon Tweed'a eon offered another party In place of Far ley, but be was not seeepted. At present several officials are on the lookout for Tweed, who Is, donbtlsss, in some hiding place In town The statement of the New York Tri bone, in reference to tbe disappearance of Tweed, seems to have been baaed on the ftct that Terrenoe Farley is reported to bare given notification to tbe sheriff of bin withdrawal frcm Tweed's bail bond; also thst neither Hasting nor Jay Gould would attempt to pass tbe examination required and justify In tbe sums which they hsva c la themselves. When Tweed learned of Farley's intention, sa above, it is said that he disappeared Im mediately .or be wonld have slept 1 ueeday night in the county prison. He wss at his office, on Duane street, st about four o'clock Tuesday svenicg, but thereafter disappeared, and, aa the Tribune esae'ts, op to one o'clock yeaterdsy morning he bad not been seen by those who sought bim. Tweed's son (Riocard M , ot ths Metropolitan hotel; hss off-red himself aa bondman In place of Terrenes F.'tey, and It la stated that Charles G Cornell, water regitter, and Charles Devlin will take the plaoes ot Gould snd Hastings.

Tbe c (Boers stated that the corpse was seen to come "ut of a wall-known s'sig-jtuon house, and that there had been foul play, sitl.er by poison or abortion. Singular Cm Tuesday, when a coal train was within three quarters of a mi e of Lscka spixsn.oa the Honesdsle branch of the B'ie nil way, one of tbe rooks on the side o the road, weighing many hundred tons, tumbled down and ludged cn the railroad track a few feet ahead of an approacting train, irUoh was running pretty fast.

Ths locomo tive wss oomf iy wreeked, tbe center of it being thrown high in tbe air, form tng for an instant a huge pyramid, and then fifteen cars went crashing down an embankment forty feet to the river. A atadlral aaetesaeaa. A special d. -patch from Little Bock to tbe St. Lonia Democrat (Radical) says: "Arrivals from Chic it eounly report that after the shooting of the murderers San ders, Usrrett and Dugan, and the destruc tion of Gerrott's "tore, where Wynne waa murdered, tbe crowd immediately dis persed, and tbe sheriff sad posse have amce remained in peaceable possession of the place. Baadars, Garrett and Dugan bad been notoriously bad characters, one having committed several murders, sad another having whipped a negro and broken his sr m, previous to their com bined attack oa Wynne. These circum stances rendered the negroes, when as sembled, uncontrollable until they had ecu red themselves from any other vio- Chioaco, December Collector Mo Lean oi this port hss .received a letter from Secretary Boutwnll, instructing him to see the owners of the block of land upon which the old poef office sad customhouse stood and as oertala from theas what alios they would pat upon tbe land, provided the govern ment should desire to purchase It. The coHseto.r has notified the property owners and they will seah nsraw bit pries by to morrow, wbeu they will be sent to Secre tary Bowtwell for conalderatlon. Should the price be deemed too high, they will be r.jscted at once, and the collector Da :n a raced to open nsgotiatlons with other p rties for a aew site. Chicago pipors contain to-dav an expo sition of wast was foreshadowed io these dispatches, a few davs since, under tbe title of "Another Bewisby -Rosen aelg Cass." The facts so far ' ibitshed show thst Mrs. McCoy, a mllili r. reelding at Craetline, hio, a lady of good character, cime to this city, and either went herself or waa taken to a female doctor oa State street, where she died io s few dsys. and waa packed in a box aad sent off to Ohio, where bar body waa discovered end ar rests made. Among others arrested was a baggage master on tbe PitlsDurgh, Fort Wavne end Chicago railroad, rramed William Shreb, who wss eagsged to be married to Mrs. McCoy, who wss a widow.

Losdow. December 27 The mail steamer from the Cspe of Good Hope brings the intelligence that the annoance msntgthat the treaty of annexation of the African territory to tbe British had been finally concluded, produced much excite ment in that territory. Bread, president of tbe Free States, had lasusd a formal protest against tbe tranater of the diamond fielda to Great Britain. The discovery cf gold, In oonslderab'e q uan titles, had been made In the trsas Vaal republic, and the reports attracted many adventurers to that quarter. The diamond seekers were abandoning the diamond districts for the newly discov ered gold country. Capetown continued thronged with the srriTlng snd returning fortune hunters, and the business ol the colony was making great strides. HAVANA. Te Spanish Situation Valauida's Bloody PrtRunciantata. Havana, December 27. tn the recent engagement near Msi zanillo the Spanish colonel, Obregon, was killed. Valmsseds hss issued a proclamation in which ha aays the offer of pardon to fie insurgents cannot last forever. He now proclaims that every Insurgent captured after the 15th of January will be sbot. Those surrendering af.er that date wiil be sentenced to perpetual imprisonment. Negroes are to be treated the same as whites. All negro women captured will be delivered to th6ir owners and be com pelled to wear a chain for four years. All white women captured in the woods after the 15th of January will be banished from the oouatry. The chiefs of the in surgent bands will be allowed to surren de- until ths Uth of January under the conditions hitherto grant.' d. TO GAS CONSUMERS. The Mea has gone abroad tbat the Mem phis Ousllghi c nipauy was ready u abandon what is termed tut; nat htba process in the manu facture of gas. Ttisrs Barer was a greater fallacy. When s consider the material uaexi the sui:al oi. of petroleuaat , scarcely merchant able for any otner u-w the rtcnnets of the ga i rp'Iuowi. reqninn. when used as naphtha gas nj ct-, to be diluted with forty-two per cent, of air to reduce It to something like the -:...i.isnJ jf ca measured t v candie-tKwer uf the) finest KiigU-u caunel coal, the rapldl ty, certainty , and, under p lit- economy with which It can be pnniucvMi am use must uc regara-M ajanauvsnceu mv--ment In pas manufacture, which should re cci vs the aLtenUon of both practical and sci entific men We have found It best to use this process In conjunction with the manufacture of ooal gas : First, because we have a market for tbe resi dual prod nets, coke and tar, at fair prices. ?Second, because our works and apparatus were constructed for the distillation of bltu mlnoiiseoal. The late complaints about the quality of gas supplied to the city grew oatof the fact that on account of the stock of naphtha running short, and some changes belLg made at tbe works, the gas in the holders for a few night was nearly pure ooal gas, unite equal to tbe standard formerly produced oy this company. The change from the use of nsphtha was as perceivable and marked as if tbe burners bad undergone a partial eclipse, and complaints a natural as If one accuat"md to glanse had attempted to lay them aside, suddenly. By a slight chauge made lu tbe connections wunour naphtha gas meter admitting only pure napotha gas into the mixer, we can with ease inject such a quantity of this neb. Ino dorous and disinfectant gas into the holders as to immediately overcome any objections a to the quality of the gas throughout the cu . uotonly rsiHngtbe llfumlnatu g power to any given standard, bnt absorbing to a great extent the trace of sulphuretted nydrotten which always Impart a bac odor to the best coal gss. This we do not claim as adteoorery, bat the . x oerimental test of tbe useof pure naphtha W most Interesting and satisfactory. On the evening of the auth, about four o'clock, we had succeeded in getting ready foi trying the effect on a large, scale, of what is known in chemistry as gasejous diffusion with out regard to ajbectftc gravity. Hot the uni form iiiurmingling of gases, for that was a kLuiD scientlac fact, but the time required for a complete mixture of gases through ths nalns (if extended; twentyelght miles in length. The holders contained about 17u,0l)0 feet ot gas, with a make of about fifteen to eighteen thousand feet per hour, when we commenoed turning In the pur aauuhagas trunmngonly two benches oi Ss and making at the rate of about e:gbt thousand cubic feet per hour. The photometer Sugg's make, London.) measured the coal gas in ths mains at tourteen candle power. As aoon ss we observed from the test 1'gbls the naphtha gas fllimg the pipes, we noted the can d le oowur of the gas tn the street mams to begin rapidly and steadily to ascend, and In twenty minutes more we found It wss uighteec candle-power. lioing Immediately to the office In the heart of tbe city, to note tbe effect there, we found everyone enquiring what bad occurred, and surprised at the Increased brilliancy ot the light. Thus in twenty minutes the Illuminating standard of coal gas, fourteen caudle-power, was raised to eighteen. By no other process known to modern sci ence and practice can such results be pro duced so rapidly. In the ordinary manufac ture of coal gas. complaint as to quality can only be remedied by a gradual process, which generally oome too late to meet complaints. By this method alone Is the effect Immediate We can. therefore, assure tbe) public that hereafter any just complaints ss to the Illum inating quality of the gas furnished the city can and shall be remedied promptly not in one locality only, but threughout the extent ef our mains, it must be understood, how ever, weoanuotand do not undertake to make gas llow through pipes fllied with scale or rust.
