It is stated that over two hundred thousand acres of land in Iowa have been sold on forged deeds, by means of which a very large sum of money has been obtained.

Arreet or a Villainous Horse-Thiff and Karu-llurner Cincinnati, May 11. On Friday, at W apakeuetta. at the instance of George W. Hood, of Butler county, John Law- ler was arrestei and brought to Hamil ton, on the charge of horse-stealing and barn-burning. He acknowledges his guilt. His mode of operations has been to pick up old horses graziug on the commons, steal good horses from bams at night, put the old horses in their places, set the barn ou fire, and then leave. About a dozen barns have been burned in Butler county in this way within the last six months. Mr. Hood detected the trick by examining the shoes of the horses and tracing them to the old broken-down horses that had beeu put in the barn and burned. He had lost by theft six horses, aud the same mimler of old ones had leen put in his ham and the barn then burned. Moat K-vlilit Mnrdora, and anlrideol tne Kurderrr. Atchison, Ks.,May 11.

Erickson was acquitted, and he left the place. Yesterday he came back to Wetmore, and this morning went to Marquette's house, near town, and when the latter came to the door Erickson shot him through the breast, killing him iustautly. He then took Marquette's two small children to a neighbor's house, where he left them, saying he bad killed their father, and was iroioi; back to kill their mother. The alarm was soon given, aud the neighbors rushed to the scene of the murder, and it is reported that they feared to go into the house, and sent to Wetmore for assistance. Before it ar rived tiiev heard shots made. On en- terine the house, they fouud Mrs. Mar quette lying on the bed iu a state of nu dity, and snot in -even places. Erick son was lying across her body, also dead, shot in two places, one over the temple aud one in the abdomen. He still held the pistol. It seems that he had committed rape on the woman be fore killiuir her, and then shot himself. The bodies were all brought to Wet more, and an inqoeat is now being held over tbem.

They are beyond doubt poisonous, or else chickens, or birds, or hogs, or something would eat them. Hogs will devour snakes with avidity, but these little dev ils go just where they wist and ask nobody auy odds,and nothing will interfere with them in the least. They jienetrate every crack or opening about a house, and the other morning, after a cool night, I fouud one wrapped up snugly bet weeu mv sheets, where he had slept comfortably all night, having consider ately condescended to take me for a bed fellow. Had I known it, I think my dreams would have been anything but pleasant that night. But I knew noth ing of the liberty which had beeu taken with my bed, and I therefore slept soundly and sweetly. "Where igno rance is bliss 'lis folly to be wise." Be sides the forest, our fruit trees are being destroyed, and there is no telling where this destruction will terminate.

As soon as the wind subsided, a heavy force cleared the track, and by Sunday morning, at eleven o'clock, four trains heavily crowded ( three following ours ) arrived here, where we found "smiling spring" and good cheer once more. Altogether, our trio of one hundred aud thirty-two hours, from Kansas ity to Denver, six hundred and thirty-eight miles, was not expected, nor wished for, yet the pas sengers could not complain of any inac tivity on tbe part of the railroad compa ny.

They are here and there and! everywhere, out of p m , doors, on the houses, all over the houses and in the houses; on one's clothes, in one's clothes, under one's clothes, and all over one. They have not only taken possession of houses, trees, gates and fences, hut they have actually marched in full force aud taken full possession of the railroad, and so firmly have they es tablished themselves upon it that a writ of ejectment would have no more effect toward removing them than the sigh of a mosquito.

Hayes, the Arctic explorer, in au interview rela live to the failure of the Hall expedition, xpressed the opinion that the Polaris was until ior me service, ami tuat tne njury to the vessel was cause. 1 by de fects in her build. Captain Hall, said the doctor, was four hundred and sixty- four miles from tne north pole, tie Hall has proven what 1 have predict ed long ago, 'hat Smith's sound was lavigaoie, and was the true passage into tlie ojten jwiar sea, wnicn ne seems io have reached. Vfhy he was driven back I cauuot tell; probably by drifting ice fields or gales of wind; but I have no doubt he had reached the iiolar sea. l here is one remarkable lact about his exploratious; he had constant sunshine til tne time, ana survivors who were Iriftine down south waters were all the time without a ray of sunshine. I can't uuderstaud why the ship, when it was so uear Northumberland island, would draw up before the ice and discharge its cargo on it. l tniuK mere was dis- seutiou on board, aud it looks to me as though this party bad been determined to leave tbe ship. There is a mystery about this part ot tne report tnat 1 cannot tauiom i ttiitiK tnat i a plain nan lias none a glorious thing. He has gone further north with his ship than any human being ever did before him, although others have goue as far in sledges. Cap tain Hall seems to nave broken the ice bergs of Hmith's sound, which baffled both previous expeditions, aud succeed ed iu reaching a point which both Kane and I claimed to have seen, the open folar sea, latitude eightv-two degrees sixteen minutes, tlie most iiorttiern latitude ever reached by any ship. His ship was two hun dred and nineteen mile.-' further north than Kane's ship. 1 can't understand why the survivors were left to the mer cies of the place, unless there was dim culty on board the ship at the outset. At Alusee mere was some ibmcuity be tween Hall and Buddington, but this was settled by the captain of the Con- Kres-. mere was something very mys terious m (. aptain Hall's death. 1 would not like to say that he was killed by oue of his men iu a mutiny, but it would almost look so, I have never known of auy one dying in that region of appoplexy, i 'id I aptain Hail certaiulv did not look like an appoplectic man. I think there is a strong probability that the people on board the Polaris are safe, and that the vessel will lie back here by .September. The men who deserted tbe ship probably did so because ol Hall s death. He was a brave and resolute man, and set out with the determination to reach the north pole, if it would take him five years to do it. He was one of the pluckiest men 1 ever saw, and would certainly have stayed two years more to accomplish his purpose if death had spared him death or murdei, I don't know which." Professor Baird, of the (smitlisonian institute, thinks Hall s expedition far from a failure, and has no doubt it real l.ed many of the objects in view in sending it out. President Paez, twice President of Venezuela, and for more than twenty vears. with rare intervals, a resident of New York city, an exile from his nativ? land, died on Tuesday morning at his residence, No. 42 Kast Twentieth street from the effects of a severe cold which he contracted about two weeks ago while ruling in Central rark. He was eighty-four years old, and almost up to the moment of his death retained his mental faculties, as well as that remark able physical vigor which was one of his principal characteristics, intact. Mr. Itomayne Broad head died in New York city on 'luesday of pneumonia M r. Broadhead was born in the city of Philadelphia in 1814. He was the son of Rev. Jacob Broadhead, of that city For a great number oi years Mr. Hroad bead had made New York his home He was a graduate from Retgers College of the class of ls.il . He studied law and was admitted to practice in 1835, As an antiquary he distinguished him self by his investigations into American history, and he was regarded as one of tlie most valunhle memliers of the his torical society, to whose records he had furnished many results of his extensive historical leoearches. Denver, Col., May 6. 8ome poet, with commendable wisdom, advises sub lunary mortals to "shun delays, they breed remorse," but fails to give a fair reasoning to show that 'tis always"mad- uess to defer. ' 1 have tielieved unpuc itlv in the injunction. In one instance, however, in endeavoring to "act accord ingly," I came very near establishing for myself a fatal precedent. Ten days ago I left Memphis for the far-west, in tending, conscienciously, to shun or avoid all "delays," if possible, when I unwittingly met up with the greatest delay of the season and this delay came very near breeding a famine instead of remorse and now, after mv experience, 1 am forced to believe tliat it is madness not to defer sometimes. But allow me to explain. In coming with a friend, J journeyed over the Memphis and Louis ville road on tne tweuty-sixiu ultimo to enjoy a leave of a few months on the plaius. Nothing occurred of any iuter est until Hedalia, Missouri, Was reached At that point, as supper was announced for the passengers, I stepped upon the platform and walked to tne aoorway the hotel, and stood there a tew mo ments debating with myself the ques tion whether a man ought to "sup when not hungry. Just then a shot was tired in one of the coaches, aud im mediately after a man came staggering ut. Another shot followwi a random hot it was and it had the effect to smash a window-pane very near me, and bring alKut aquiek decision in favor of the affirmative; 1 retired. By cautious ntpiiry I learned, after suppea, that a man had iieeu oadiy snot some old family feud. The excitement was over and we resumed our journey. We left Kansas City at eleven o'clock Monday nght. The weather was mild, spring- ike, in tact, we accomplished a dis tance of several hundred miles without trouble, anticipating with pleasure the prospects of breakfasting miles away in aristocratic iieuver. our expectation failed us, alter fair promises. .Late 1 ties- lay evening (the twenty-ninth) tne temperature changed decidedly in favor of winter. Heavy clouds rolled in great dark masses from the northwest, and at dark a storm burst upon us in full fury. Such groans of roaring wind and rain I never remember to have heard before. As we thundered on the storm increased iu severity, and our coaches swayed to and fro as if rejoicing at a young earthquake's birth. At midnight it commenced, to snow, and the gale grew to such force as to compel us to take the siding at Aroya, one hundred aud twenty-eight miles east of Denver. Aroya has only a wind-mill, tank, one sectionhouse and "dug-out"' (a large hole dug in tbe ground and covered, with the exception of a few port-holes, with logs and earth as I protection three vpars aim to the Dioneers aurainst the Indians) to distinguish it as a landmark of civilization on the bosom of tbe great American desert. f or lorty nours tne wind niew a per fect hurricane, whirling aud piling tbe snow here and there in drifts of trom rive to fiteen feet deep, and leaving the ground in exposed places entirely hare. Ihe cold was intense, logive you au tea of it, two large rabbits crawled under the engine for shelter and were afterward taken out frozen to death. No assistance could be given us from east or west. The wires were pros trated, and communication with the division officials was entirely out of the question. However, the pas sengers endeavored to accept the situa- ion with a eood eraee. but it was rather a failure, we had been iwenty-rour hours without a meal. It was now twelve noon, Wednesday. The gloom was intense, and it appeared unsafe for a passenger to leave the train anv dis tance tor fear of being lost. iNolwitu taudiiiK this we were visited through the driving storm bv three men and a ehcatc little woman trom the section house all heavily muffied with furs and robes, aud each carrying Ja weii-nneo tray, closely wrapped. They were queer- lookinir objects, all bronzed with ex insure and covered with snow, ine lit tle woman seemed to be in authority, and -"aine, she said, to "bring us a bite to eat." The "bite" proved to tie a uaNrm mirhcil for every passenger. Hhe re peated her dangerous trips until the pas sengers were supplied wun inree meais, aud after a greater portion of her pro visions were eaten up she refused to charge anything. The passengers voted her a heroine in a handsome sum quick- Iv subs -ribed. Before she came to our relief the passengers descanted freely upon the situation and some went so far as to abuse the "superintendent because of the "outrazeous delay" but afterward good humor prevailed, aud the veudor of sweetmeats aud pa pers, with his "lowest satisfaction and highest prices" was ruled out. On Thursday the storm was still tear ing things to pieces generally, but abating; cattle were seen lying here and there frozen to death, and all kinds of stock had suffered. As a relief to our train, a snow-plow, with three amines, was started from Denver Wednesday night. As it was driving furiously through a heavy cut of twenty-feet snow, seventy miles from Denver, it left the track, ditched three engines in a heap, wrecking one engine and the plow, and severely injuring the con ductor and an engineer. Another plow, with four engines, left Hugo, one hun dred miles east of Denver, Thursday, to release us. We were enabled to make Hugo by five o'clock the same day, and remained until Saturday night, almost producing another famine. The plow aud four engines weresent eastward, and were clearing the cuts aud throwing the snow beautifully, wheu the plow mounted a heavy packed drift, wrecked itself com pletely, and ditched two e. urines one hundred and sixty miles f oai Denver. The engine of our train wus sent Friday evening to cut through to tbe wreck of ol the first plow. After going eleven miles the engine attempted to drive The Baptist State convention con venes at Aberdeen ou tlie twenty-eighth instant.

The Tennessee supreme court has re cently decided that the marriage of ne groes while in a state of slavery was le gitimate. Judge Head delivered the opinion. Thirteen thousand dollars are required to complete the building and purchase the necessary machinery for one hun dred looms and thirty-four hundred spiu- dles for the Brownsville cotton mill. The army worm has made its appear ance in East Tennessee, and is playing havoc with the meadows and grain fields. One farmer, near Talbot's Sta tion, had thirty acres of fine clover to tally destroyed. We see from the lcksburg Ifrrald that the Vicksburg Educational, Agri- ultural aud Manufacturing aid society still continues to "scratch the liack of the average Vicksburgian," the decision of the supreme court to me contrary notwithstanding.
