AMTJRDERE&S REMORSE.
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

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. "
