Of all the crimes ■TLjtted here since the pall of night over Battle, this wan the 2k *"d crueL The Coroner'# fTjgt held jesterday morning, Sfollowing juror* being summone oC. Sborey, F. M Sevier. J. D Smith, /jj piakham, W.C. Hattbom and Jan. t Jafdsu- They render*! a Terdict to yl «Ask that the daceaand was named PiM Daaflcld; that he wan a native ot Virtiaia and aged about 57 years; that to hie death on tbe 3d day ol jVfgptar, 1577. in this county, by bit ova hand. to wit: by shooting bimseit to the head with a pietol and takina nwhnins and that the act resulted *am temporary insanity. The te»ti aoafof the two girls is that they went to bed about 10 o'clock, and after a v hile their father catne up and ley jo*a ea a mattine*. His wife came op to go to bed but he drove her aw%y fnm him, and she went down stairs and sat in a chair by t»»*» Are, where she H altcp. Tne next thing t ->ey beard aw the scuffle occasioned by bis cutting Ut wife's throat and that between him aal Hopper, when they started down iMhs sad met him coming up. 1b« younger girl slipped by him. bjt the elder ran back into the garret. and got outside ou the porch. He then ran jgfo stairs after the second daughter, chasing her into the yard and cut her OB the back of the neck with a butcher kails His wife's throat ha cut with a Mor. After catting bis daughter, be ran into the kitchen and shot himself ia the back of tbe b*>ad with a lay navy revolver. H - then went op stain and taking a dose of *trvcb aaM died on his mat trass H»p par says that Duutield came into bis luuai with a laater in one huud sad au as in the other. He saw h» danger, and dodged under Dunfleld's ana. ss the ax fell. He tbeu run to a neighbor's bouse tor assistance. Mrs. Duutield is in t very critical condition, hir throat being cut nearly from ear to «ar, and ber windpipe being aluioet en tirely severed by the razor, which bare ly escaped cutting the main arteries ot tbsaaok She was sitting asleep in tbe chair at tbe time, and did not btmr birn until be seized ber by tbe bead, and drew tbe rasor across ber throat. An oaaoa bottle of strychnine was fouud by tbe aide of bit bed. nearly empty showing conclu-ively that be bad taken a very Urge dose of the deadly drug. That Doufield baa been more or leas cmy at differeut times, there can be so doubt, and it is said he was once an iaoste of tbe insane aaylutn at Stock toe. He has alwaya bean more or less troubled about his financial affairs. He had a good place on the Duwa'uiab river, where he w uted to reside, bat bh wife preferred to live in the city, sad he eould uot make a living here , bat kept going deeper in debt Uut Sunday afternoon he at ori ia front of thia office and was inhaling chloroform from a handkerchief, when oer leporter asked hiiu what be WHS do ing that for. Mr. Duutield replied that be was pained wi*h neuralgia. He bad nstaola hia farm through AugusMack wash to parties in Port Oamble for |l,ooo, hut bad not yet received the aoasy. This case only goes to show that men who have ntsnifes*ed symp tarns of insanity should not be suffered tobs at large. There are other men walking the streets of this city every day, Who ought to be locked HO. If we wwa to name them wt should be set dam aa a meddlesome interloper. But MM ef th «e days there will be anoth er Danfield tragedy and then every -1 see it plainly em Uib. These tefarous people shoula b • sent to a Mil place, no matter what their rela tions think ot it.
