Born or Parents or the Free Thinking Persuasion, and Educated In a Circle or Spiritualists, She Eas-lly lie comes the Victim of a Scoun drel Named Brown, who To Cover up his Criminal Intimacy, Con cocts a Scheme to Astonish the World with a "Blessed Mother " and "lilessed Child" Sensation A Wood Strong Kopa Wanted. Toledo special to the Cincinnati Enquirer, April 28.h: While tho Waite Jones case atiain abates in suddenly sensational features, interest has not abated, and information is eagerly sought. In all its details it is doubt less the most extraordinary one on record. Opinion is pretty well fixed that the -whole mischief is tbe resale or vicious association, and shows the danger of allowing youni? girls to get under the influence of visionary persons ot their own sex. It is now as plain as the daylight to all of Dr. Jones's family that to the young woman whom Waite calls "Mantia Weeks" is to be traced all the woe which has befallen them. Through Dr. Jones himself, to day, your correspondent gathered considerable information relative to her and her STRANGE FANATICISM. Miss Weeks is tbe daughter of parents who lived here up to a tew years. They were Qaaker people, and in business. Mr. Weeks was a photographer, occupying the corner of Ojk and Summit streets. In re ligious views they were ot the free-thinker sort, and the little circle in which they moved were Spiritualists. . Relatives by marriage were the families of J. Secor and the Ben netts, Calvin and Henry, very wealthy and influential famiiu s, and also that of David Ketcham. Mr. Secor and Mr. Ketcha:n are each the head of large business houses. Man ila wiu tLc BcooBd t,la. Vlr father sold his business to a Mr. Alley, and soon atter was taken fick and died. The family mjved to Adrian, but soon after returned and went to live with Mr. Ketcham, who waa Manila's uacle. Her friet.ds got her a position as teacher in the city schools, eh9 having been well educated, and it was while teaching that her acquaintanca with Ada Jones began. Two j ears ago her health failed, and ber uncle, in k.nd generosity, sent Ler eubt tor her health, and the, through friends, came under the professional care of DR. BOW1CN. who hves ia Jersey City, and who was the physician of the circle in which ebe resided. This circle were all Spiritualists, and Dr. Bowen the shining head. Another was a MifS Hotchkiss, who was a fanatic in that faith, and believed in human perfection, and a life without hid, as expounded, it is said, by Bowen. Miss Weeks'a letters to Toledo talked strangely of the same (tuff. Some of the Brooklyn people were relatives of the Ketchams and tbe Bennetts, which accounts fcr Mantia's oing there. Finally, the Tole do relatives were astonished by letters from Miss Hotchkiss, speaking of Mantia as tbe "BLK99KD MOTHER," WHO 8HOCLD BEAR THE "BLEBSED CHILD," and the like, indicating an astonishing state of aiijura. They at oace sent for her to como borne, and on her arrival found her crazy upon the notion indicated. Inquiry proved that Bowen was at the bottom of all the mis chief; that he had been operating with a number of girls, amojg them Miss Weeks, and had brought them to believe in a new era of good will, fr?e love, Spiritualism, etc., the kuding idea ot which was that he should be the head of a new spirituality, and that the "Bitsstd Mother" should bear by him A SECOND CHRIST. The friends at once secured admisoion for ber to the Northwestern insane asylum here. She did not rapidly mend, and the Columbus asylum being opened about that time, Mr. Secor, who was a director in the institution, had her transferred there. Miss Jones, in spite of fcer r areuts who, however, did not seem to be fully aware ot the real situation followed the bend of her ideas received from Miss Weeks. Her father observed she grasped eageily atter reading matter of the kind, and one time discovered she was closely reading Plato's works. Sho also read almost constantly of highly romar.tic and sensational novels, tor which her tnir.t seemed insatiate. At last HER MIND GAVE WAT. She was at once sent to tbe Columbus asy lum, and so got egain iuto the closest mti macy with the Weeks woman. This seems to have been an oversight on the part of the Toledo friends, cr else they relied on the management of the institution to know what was best for all tbe patients. Not long atter a letter of Ada's (to her father) was received, so filled with her theme and so extravagant in ber expressions toward MifS W eeka, whom she called "blessed mother," e . ut tno doctor became alarmed and went to see about it, however delaying a day or two until the meeting ot tbe btat medical association, ot wlich he is a member. In the meantime, Miss Wetks, whose theory was that she was cou fined in persecution against the boly head of the new church, conceived a cunning and fcuceeeBful PLAN FOR ESCAPE, t ie inmates contributing the money to the amount of fifty dollars, and Miss Jones head iug the list with a good sum. The escape does not eeem creditable to the efficiency of the institution at the time. Tbe Toledo rela tives made diligent search for the escaped "vngip." Dottctives traced her to Jersey City, and heard of her being s?en with liowea, but here lost the trace. Finally, Dr. Jones intercepted a letter to bis daughter, beuring the postmark, "Ansonia, Connecti cut," and signed by Miss Hotchkiss. It bore tbe "j'oyoui tidings" that the "Blessed Mother of the Blessed Child was safe in An sonia." "Blessed Child" is supposed to mean tlio child expected, s there is no information that any child has yet been born as a result of the BOWEN LIAISON. which has now covered a considerable pe riod. All the information touching Bowen puts him in tho light of a designing liber tine among tbe girls of tho Brooklyn circle. He has a wifo, who seems to know too much of him to believe in his religious sincerity, as sh became very jealous of him at tbe time of Mantia's first arrival in Brooklyn, and on her arrival in Jersey City, on her es cape, Mrs. Bowen made a disturbance and began efforts for a divorce. The Toledo friends now despaired of doing anything tor poor Mactia, and she has sinco been living from place to plaoe among New YorK Spirit ualistic sects, including those at Saratoga, Port Edwards and Ulen Falls. Duriug last season she was one of a number of Spiritual ists who occupied a cottage at Saratoga, where, . supposed under Bowen 's manage ment, they illustiated TUB "HIGHER PLANE OF I.IFK AND THE PERFECT PRINCIPLES OF FREE-LOVE." Sheridan Waite's connection with the af far began abiut tbe tiuo of Mautia's first t-ip to Brooklyn. He chanuea to go to tee Hot'-hkiss place at the same time for his health, and was also treated by the same Dr. Bowen, and became at once very intimate ?ith Miss Weeks. He visited her at Colum bus asylum, aud there met Miss Jones, into whose uncertain mind if'i Weeks poured his most extravagant praises, d8Mibing him as scmethinar crod-l:ke and superhuman. In this way was the poor girl well prepared to ba infatuated with him in tbe sudden and rouiantw events which followed. Such is the history of a principal in what must be one ot the strangest cases in medical jurisprudence. If the situation of Miss Jones declared to be A LUNATIC, married to a man she shall never see if her friends prevail is sad. what shall be said of Mantia Weeks, with virtue, or at least good nnme, gone with her reason, and not even the sanctity of marriage to cover the multi tude of Bins, the world will see her awful niihfoi'tune can only be uieaeured by those who knew her. She was a beautiful girl, with a biiht, frank, optn countenance, large, lov ing eyes and attractive form and figure. There was a sweetness in ber face often re marked as almost spiritual. Surely, death loves a shining mark, whether it be moral or mortal distinction. THE STARK VILLE SENSATIOX Considerably 31 od tiled - rbelVexro Carn Tblef aad Btrabararr was not L.) nelied.

The Jury Organized and tbe Trial Be gan Tbe Defease will Met up the flea of Conspiracy to Kill Cox. Atlanta, Ga., April 30. The jury was completed to day in tne Cox-AUton case, and the trial commenced. A part of tbe line or defence will be an effort .to establish a con spiracy to kill Cox, and prove that Murphy furnished Alston with a pistol; that Murphy and Howard during tbe fight were concealed in a dark room of the treasury office, coming out immediately after, and Murphy securing the pistol used by Alston, and that Howard abked at once that nothing be saij about their being in sid room. The theory of the dtfense is that Cox was hunting Murphy ou leaf e business, and not Alston ; that Alston drew and fired without any demonstration from Cox to warrant an attack, and thit Cox was fortunate in caving his own life by taking Alston's in self-defense. Important aud unexpected testimony is looked fcr to morrow. ii ustsviLjLk, ajla . Meveu Prisoners IMg Oat of Jail Glasses and Inkstauds oa the Wins In a Coart-ioom. A Huntaville correspondent of the Nash ville American writes, under data of the twenty-seventh: "Seven trisoners confined in our jail escaped on Tuesday night by pick ing a hole in ton wall. An exciting scene oc curred in the United States court-room, re cently, betwepn District-Attorney Mayer an l Hon. L. P.Walker. It grew out of the ex amination of a witness in an election fraud cusp. Solicitor MDjer remarked that Ueneral Walker bad intimated something he should not have said by a question put to the wit ness. This General Walker emphatically denied, and upon Mr. Mayer repeating the assertion General Walker told him be lied, whereupon Mr. Mayer seized a glass near at hand, but was prevented from throwing it by friends. General Walker hurled au inkstand at Mr. Mayer, striking him but doing him only eiitfht injury. Judge Bruco promptly adjourned court, and upon reassembling the next morning used tome very emphatic and pointed language in regard to the occur rence, and notified the parties concerned that tbey would hear from him again on tho sub ject before the adjournment of court."

On Wed nesday evening . last he overtook ber as she was walking iu the outskirts of the city and persuaded ber to continue her walk with him into a piece of woods. Three young boys who were near saw them, but fearing trouble said nothing until Friday eveniug when tbey told the girl's brother. Last night she was questioned about it and made a confession to her mother that Donaldson had seduced her. The news Boon leaked out and created great excitement uptown, Donaldson denied it, and offered fifty dollars to any one who would bring him face to face with bis ac cuser. An appointment was made, but the singer did not meet it. He had taken flight. He was followed by the girl's brother and cfficeis, aud after twenty-four hours pursuit by rail and across the country, he was found at Washington, the capital of Fayette county.

Ihe force in the Indian .territory and vicinity is ample lor the i.urpo&e, and the administration is determined to enforce the President s order and protect the treaty and other rights of the Indians. CAUCUS OF DEMOCRATS OF THE HOUSE. Immediately after the adjournment of the house to day a well attended Democratic caucus was held for the purpose of determin ing what course should be pursued in regard to the Presidents veto ot tbe army appro priation bill. After some discussion upon a uroposition to refer tne veto messigeto tne judiciary committee, or to a special select committee, witn me view ot ootaiuing a re port which should exhibit what was alleged to be its ineorrect interpretation of the pur pose and effect of the sixth section of the bill, it was decided to onng tne measure to a direct vote to-morrow without debate or reference. A resolution embodying this con clusion was finally adopted with great una nimity, end ia as follows: Kesolred, 1 hat it is the eenae ot ibis con vention tbat tbe bill making an appropriation for the support of tbe at my should pass, not withstanding ihe ut jaoUrma of the President, and thnt we will proceed ta tube thfl vot."" to morrow without debile. The caucus then proceeded to consider a question ot wider scope and greater impor tance, namely : w nat inrtner action snouid oe taken by tbe Democratic party concerning the two aDDropriation bills after they shall both have been defeated by Presidential ve toes. - The veto of tne legislative, executive and judicial bill with its political sections being. ot course, toresnadowed oy tne rresiaent 8 message, an animated discussion ensued, in which, among others, aiessrs. rtmuau, ,ox, Blackburn and Stephens participated. It finally determined to refer the whole subject to the caucus committees of the house and senate wnicn originally iramed tbe political sections now in contro versy.

Tbe membership of this committee is as follows: Oa the part the bouse Representatives Chalmers, Carl isle, Cox f N. Y.l. Ewing. Sprineer, Tucker, Atkins, Clymer, Ueagao, iiicknell and rnelps. On the part ot the senate Senators Thur- maa, Wbyte, Kernan. Saulsbury, Jones Fla.J, Bailey, Lamar, Yoorhees and Vance. At the commencement of to day's prcceed iecrs. a strict iri inction of secrecy was im- DOed noon all the members, but this was subsequently removed to the extent of per mitting the publica'ion ot the conclusions reached by tee caucus. A NATIONAL GREENBACK CAUCUS. The National Greenbackers of the house aleo held a caucus of three hours duration to day on the subject ot the Presidential veto. A general interchange ot views occurred. but no definite action was reached as to what course they should pursue. Information ob tained from a trustworthy source iudicates that the meeting was not altogether har monious, there being a great diversity of opinion existing as to the proper steps to be taken, and in the course of the debate the fact was developed that the National party will not stand as a unit on the question when it comes before the house, but will divide, some sustaining the veto, others opposing it, and the third faction refraining from voting ither way. Congressional Proeeediaxs. IN THE HOUSE. Immediately after the reading of the jour nal, the speaker presented the veto message of tbe President upon the army appropria tion bill, and it was read by the clerk. On the conclusion of the reading of the message, which consumed thirty-five minutes, Mr. Sparks offered the following order: It is ordered that the message of the Presi dent, just read, be entered -at length on ihe journal, as required by the constitution of the united states, and tbat tne bouse will to-morrow proceed to consider said message, and thereafter to reconsider the bill making appropriations for the support of the army for the fiscal year ending June 30tb, and tbat said message be printed.

TIIE 1CIIHAL Ji 1KCJEST Case Terminates with the Liberal Meateaee of Seven Years Imprison, nient for the Uanatural Parent, he Pleadlnjs Guilty as Charged with Incest with his Own lanxbter. Cincinnati Enquirer, 29th: Frederick Ich bauci, who waa indicted by the last grand jury fcr incest with his daughter, Elizabeth ichbaum, in the eastern part of the city on on the sixth of May last, was yesterday brought before Judge Johnston, of the court of common pleas, and withdrew the plea of not guilty, which he put in when arraigned, and pleaded guilty to the indictment. He was represented by Judge Lindemann and Colonel Bond. The former, speaking on be half of the prisoner, said: Your honor has seen fit to appoint Colonel Bond and myself to defend this prisoner. Both of us were satisfied that it would be improper on our part to go before a jury without at least a tangible theory of this ease. We have used every means to ascer tain whether we could make a defense or not. W e have examined the prisoner and his daughter, and have come to the conclusion that there is no defense in the case. Feel ing that a history of this man would possibly enable you to look upon this crime witn 6ome leniency, I will state it: "He was born in L?ngelos, in the canton of Metz, Lorraine, France, and, whe i twelve years of age, removed to Canada. In the following year bis parents died, throwing him upon his own resources, with neither means nor edu cation i After remaining a short time in Canada, he went to Buffalo, New York, and lived upon a farm eif ht years. Subsequently he came to Cincinnati, and married bis wife in thvv;Uage from where be was taken to jail. The lamily lived together in circum stances so po r that the children were unable to attend school. The girl with whom the crime is allege-' to have been committed is the oldest of the six children. She is now eighteen years of age, and has no education whatever. Tbe family all slept in one room, and since the mother's death, three years ago, no change has been made. This was an unfor tunate circumstance. Had the family ar rangements been different, it is probable that the defendant would not have been a prisoner hereto-day. "The man frequently indulged in drink, and the daughter admitted that, at the first commission of this wrong, she de tected liquor upon his breath. It is well known that surrounding circumstances have a powerful influence upon a person's actions, and we think the surroundings of this man some extenuation of bis conduct. Colonel Bond and myself thought that it would not be right to put the county to the expense of a triil of the case. We have come to the con clusion that he is guilty of the crime, and ojnsidered it to be our du'y only to make a fair statement of the case to the court, and to leave the prisoner to your honor's mercy." Colonel B -ul remarked that the legisla ture of the Stite had, ia its wisdom, vested a wise discretion in the court, and said you may sentence this man to one year in the penitentiary or ten. There is pothmg left us in this cae but to appeal to that mercy which was lodged in the breast of the court by the legislature. Judge liindeman has given you the history of this man. Remem berinsr that fatherless and motherless, poor and uneducated, he was drifting upon the ocean of life, and knowing th -t the legisla ture has said that you may sentence him to serve a term of one year or ten years, I ask yoar honor to exercise tne leniency toward this unfortunate man wnicn you are given the power to exercise. Tt was stated that four of the children are living, the daughter being in the county in firmary, and tne Qiaest acq, agea tmrceen, is living with Dr. Gaines in California; the other two eons, aged ten and six years, aiso residing in the town. The prosecutor, air. urew, stated that ne had conversed with the prisoner's neighbors in reference to the case, and had learned that Mr. Ichbaum was a hard working man, but that he sometimes indulged too freely in drink. Nothing very unfavorable was said of him, except concerning the present charge against bim. Ihe defendant s boys, who were before the grand jury, were very bright, and bad been sent to school considerably more than the girl. The daughter is in the county mfirmaiy. in confinement with her father s child. Mr. Urew stated that he had conversed with the daughter about the charge made against her father, and she said that the first criminal act between them was done under her father's compulsion, and that since that time she had lived with him for two years in the relation of a wife. I he prisoner, upon the interrogation ot the court, stated that ho had nothing to say in his own behalf. The court proceeded to pro nounce sentence upon bim, saying that the crime is n moat grievous one. The offense was ot such a revolting nature that it would eeem that no human being could become so degraded as to commit sach an offense, Beasts of the field commingle their blood, for they do not kuow any better; but this is a case of a human being, who, for two years, bad carnal intercourse with his own daugh ter, and she is nowbearing upon ber breast a child, tho fruit of that intercourse. She is equally as guilty as her father, but perhaps her tender years at the time illict intercourse commenced are a protection in some respect tor ner. ine case acinus ot but very few extenuating circumstances, perhaps of but one, and that is the checkered course of the prisoner's lite. This, in connection with passion, perhaps, is the only extenuat ing circumstance ofiered here. The court at fars5 felt that the daughter neeaea a protector, and tor that reason felt that a short sentence should ba sriven: but, judging of the future from the past, she would need piotection from the prisoner. She has been unable to protect herself against the prisoner's lust. She is of age and able to protect herself. Fortunately, perhaps, the rest of the prisoner's children are males, and it is a pleasure to know that some of them are well provided for, and it is to be hoped that the other children will be equally pro vided for by a generous community. I feel that it would be but an act of justice that while not the full nenaltv of tho law. which is ten years, should be enforced, the prisoner should be confined long enough to enable these children to get beyond tho reach of his inUaence and partially forget the offense. It ia the j'odgment of the court that the prisoner be confined ia the penitentiary lor seven years. The prisoner waa then removed to the county jail. CABLE CLICKIiVGS.
