The murderer's remorse and the ti§- ioctt that haunt bis troubled tlaiabert have furnished the theme for many an exciting sketch, but the free* surrender and unsought acknowledgment of a self confessed man-flayer rarely appears in police annals. The regular bearing at the Central Station yesterday afternoon had been concluded, the audit-nce had dispersed, and Alderman Carj»enter was about leaving, when a blae-coftted and brass-lmttoned patrolman. n«*rrously grasping a man of peculiar appearar.cu, hurried into the hearing-rooiu and an nounced that ho a had murderer tu cus tody. The prisoner gave his nam'- a*< William Devitt, and his r«»eiduiio»} as "nowhero." Officer Smith, of the Nine teenth Police district, testifb-d that on Sunday evening, whil« he was standing at Twenty-third and Booth streets, the prisoner approached hiui and said : "1 want to give myself up. I have com mitted murd«-r." The officer then questioned him. and subsequently at the station-house, in rrgard to the matter, and learned the following particulars: About five years ago Devitt was em ployed as a laborer on a railroad near Uniontown, Fayette county, i'a., about eight miles from Conm-llsville. To gether with three or four companions, all of whom, as well as himself, were intoxicated, ho was passing through the woods. They met a stranger, who De vitt thinks was a railroad "boas." Be ing in a quarrelsome* humor, Devitt, and a man whom he terms his "part- Mr," had a controversy with the stran ger about some trifling matter. The argument advanced to a war of words, when Devitt and his "partner" seized a large log of wood, and striking the man on the chest, crushed in his breast, caus ing almost instant death. Devitt's "partner" ran through a corn-field, but had not proceeded far before he was captured. Devitt himself was arrested the following day, and the two men wore lodged in jail, though in separate cells. Devitt succeeded in forcing open the window of his prison apartment,and lowering bimselt to the ground by means of the blankets cut into strips, effected his osci»j>o. In subsequent con versation with Alderman Carpenter and with tho Time* man, Devitt stated since his escape, five years ago, ho had wan dered about the couutry, mainly through tho Southern States, working upon va rious railroads. His compauiuii iu crime was convicted of man-slaughter, and irM Io r» yr»r(i iu ttic Wvn torn Penitentiary, Pittsburg. "I have not had a night's rest nor a day's luck since that time," said Devitt, in earnest tones. "Everywhere 1 go the murdered mau is before me ; everything I do his blood stained corpse distracts my atten tion and grants me not a moment's peace. We were all intoxicated, but I want to go back and be tried, as I would then fiel far more satisfied." Tho unfoitunate man was according ly committed to await tho action of the authorities of Fayette county. Devitt is twenty-eight years of age and a native of Ireland, tlis countenance is a peculiar one. It bears a look both of hardened criminal ity and firm determination. At first glance he appears but a boy in years, but u|>on closer inspection lines that tell a tale of daily torment and a look of premature age are plainly discerned. In talking ho has a careless, uncon cerned way of expressing himself, lead ing to tho inference that he either was of unsound mind or was narrating a false tale for tho furtherance of a pri vate scheme. Tho man who. in San Francisco, announced himself as tho Nathan murderer, when brought to New York admitted that his sole pur pose was to obtain a free pass to the latter city. At tho Central Station, however, two years ago last Christmas day, an individual delivered himself up to Turnkey Ilolloway as the uiurderor of a mau in Maryland and was subse quently sentenced to eighteen years im prisonment. The police authorities yes terday rather mistrusted Devitt s tale, and accordingly telegraphed the au thorities at Uniontown. A reply was received last night stating that a mur der of the character that Devitt de scribus bad been committed about five years ago and one of the accused parties had managed to escape. Officers from Fayetto county will probably arrive hero to-day. and Devitt's wish will lie gratified. —Philadelphia fiw*. JOURNALISM IN 1776. There were no daily newspajiers iu the time of the Revolution Of some fifty papers which were born, and lived, or died between 1743 and ITS.'}, all were weeklies or semi- weeklies. There wt re forty-three such in existence at the end*of the war. They were poor af fairs, viewed in th« light of the journal ism of to-day; but, measured by their times, displayed considerable enter tirise, aud exerted an immense influence, t was their characteristic that they aimed not so much to print the news of Ibe locality in which they were pub lished as to bring to that locality news frcm distant parts of tho coun try and of the world. In fact, the tieaspajfis of tho KeVv lution ha>i comparatively little to do with news of any kind. Tho gathering of it had not be«"n reduced to a system. The pub lisher was his own editor and reporter. There were no telegraph tolls to pay; and, had there been, there would havs been uo money with »Inch to haye paid them News trav ltd to the psper by t rivate conveyance. It was two mont-.s coming from <ireat Britain, and six month# from Constan tinople. That useful and widely known individual, "a gentleman »<f undoubted veracity,'' lived however, iu the country at that time. and ren dered valuable services Ihe papers were filled aith political sayings, s.\tires and lampoons. By many of thorn, the largest liberty of discus sion was allowed ; and there were no ticeable tendencies to tho fre*»? s« rt of ii*eulition. Of journalism in the modern sense of the term, elabo rated, enterprising, competitive, lavish SEATTLE, WASHINGTON TERRITORY, TUESDAY, JUNE 6, 1576. in outlay, and presenting a field for the highest attainments and most care fully acquired professional skill, there was absolutely nothing. And yet we mast accord to journals of the Revolu tion, small irregular, struggling sheets that they were, the credit of a gener ally heroic spirit, and a very noble achievement in shaping the the pat riotic temper of the times. " MY SOX " said a Boston parent, as his eighteen-year-old offspring stood, carpet bag in hand, up on the thresh old, " you are going to tho Centenuial. Promise iue that during your absence you will shun bad company and keep your feet from the doors of alehouses and billiard saloons. " "Fathor " re plied the young man, with the mem mo ry of the last caucus fioating iu his mind, " I cannot. I go uninstructed and unpledged. " MISCELLANEOUS. PUGETSOUD STONEYARD M.
