Ilallott went into tho room of the Metropol itan Hoop Skirt Co. and after assnr ing himself that everything was " nil right" stepped upon n stool and extinguished the light, as he supposed, by turning down the wick of a large kerosene lamp. Uon reaching the head of the stairs, he turned hii head in the direction of the lamp, when it bid him good night, by bursting like a bomb shell, into a thousand pieces. The wick like a shooting star with its fiery tail dropied to the floor and in an in stant Ihe room was well illuminated. Mr. II. seized a cushion hard by, and waded into the fire and smokf having little else in his mind than petroleum ! petroleum ! ! Fire is a hard master but Mr. Hallett master ed it nevertheless. Had he scream- vnjirc: aim ran ior water as some would have done, our town would now have a black and sorrv stint. But as it was he soon smothered the flame?, and no damage was done, save ti " dead" lamp and a soiled cushion. The wick was short and as it was turned down a little too far it dropved through, and the mo ment the tire " struck oil"' the ex plosion took place. Cold Indication.

One of the main 1. tiendencies of the John son party in the contested Congres sional Districts in this city for the success of i heir candidates is the vote of our naturalized citizens. They are courted and flattered ly the leaders of that party, in public and in private, and promised almost anything they may ask if they will pledge themselves to vote for the Johnson candidates. They are play ing Ihe same game in New York, and this attempt has caused a patriotic Irishman to put on record, in the Tribune, the following fact, why Irish votcrttslinnld or ratiiersaouhl not sustain Andrew Johnson. We commend his '"fact" to the atten tion of the mitiiuali.'icd voters of New England. lie says: 1 am an Irishman. In the words of the great O'Coiinell, 1 1 love the fair and fruitful land of niy birth my fatherland.' I love the Irish people, too. abroad anil at home, and it is because of this love I step in with a gentle reminder when 1 find that political capital is sought to be matte oy appealing to Irish grati tude for an Irish vole for ' my poli cy.' My count ry nn n, sir. are.impressi ble lo a high degree; they are gen erous to a fault ; none so readily re sent an injury none more gladly Ibigive it; but there are some in juries too deep and lasting to be for gotten ; injuries to dead parents injuries to departed wives and chil dieii; and to-day, from the famine graves of Ireland there come voices of appeal lo the descentiantsof their occupants in this country not to sus tain the man who, in the time of their sore tribulation, refused to give them sustenance. What are the facts! Simply these. In the winter of 1 S,;.."7, during the prevalence of the potato rot and couscipieiit famine in Ire laud, the proposition was made in Congress to appropriate a sum of money to purchase corn and Hour to send to my starving countrymen.

And let me nsk my countrymen : Can they for get the realities of the past in the liypt 'isies of the present ! There be m.oiy among them who reincin lcr the appalling scenes of The fam ine year; many wjll go to the bal let box on election day whose, pa rents occupy pauper graves in (he old land, and I would ask them be fore daring, in the face of such re membrances, to deposit a vote for Andrew Johnson's supporters, tu re call Andrew Johnson s vote against their relatives ami friends." . r I . 1 11.. oi wccks ago, a man iiuiui'ii jut, , who had Iwetia soldier in the 2d Ar kansas (Union) Cavalry, was most barbarously murdered in the same county under the following circum stances: Several men rode up to Ray's house late in the evening, and inquired if they could have some supper. Bay told them that his wife was very sick, but that he would do what he could for them. Whereupon lio himself prepared a meal for them, ami they partook of u. rMipjMroveruimineir norsesteii, the bushwhackers, for such they were, asked Ray what they had to pay. He hospitably refused com pensation,. What followed is of a nature so dialstlical and heart rending as al most to stagger Is-lief. The fiends then coolly told Ray that they hail come to kill him, and that he had to die immediately, accusing him of having killed a friend of theirs dur ing the war. Horror-struck, Ray plead for his life, for the sake of his poor wife, who was confined to her bed a helpless invalid. But the monsters knew no mercy, and as one of them was about to tire, the wife sprang out of her led and placed herself In-fore her husband, begging with all the fervor of a de voted wife, u.ider circumstances so dreadful, for her husband's life. But in vain, i he savages removed one of her arms from her husband ami tired, shooting the man (whose only crinie was to be Union man and an ex-Union soldier) through the body. Breaking away from his wife, he staggered across the room, trying, perhaps, to escape, but fell dead af ter receiving three more shots. The assassin then fin-doff the remaining two charges of his revolver in the room, and then the whole party left. " No arrests have been made, nor will there ever be. The murder er, before he killed Ray, confessed he did not know anything of him, but that he was a Union man, and that Union men could not live there. " Since writing the above, we leirrii that two other Union men were killed in the same county, one of whom was (.'apt. Dotlson. late of the 4th Arkansas (Union) Cavalry. The rebels attempted to kill Cap tain Wood, but he got out of their way.

The scene in the court room, at Toronto, Canada, on Thursday, when Robert Bh8 Lynch was con victed and condemned for his share in the Fenian mid last summer, is descrilied ns having been a very striking one. After the pleadings and the Judge's charge, which is considered to have been very fair and temperate, the jury retired at a few minutes past four o'clock, and the Court took a recess. While waiting for the jury the prisoner oc cupied himself in reading a newspa mt and in conversing with his coun sel and friends. He expressed him self satisfied with the manner of his trial and defense. At twenty minutes to six the jury returned in to court and gave their verdict of "Guilty," which was recorded. The Solicitor General requested the judgment of the Court, and Justice Wilson asked the prisoner if he had anything to say why judgment j should not Ve passed upon him for the felony of which he had lieen convicted. Lynch answered in a clear tone as follows : SPEECH OF LYNCH. Well, iny Lord, you must be aware, you must have noticed the incon venience and disadvantage my coun sel labored under in not lieing able to bring the evidence of those who could have proven clearly that 1 hail no connection with the Fenian raid.

On that occasion I saw him when place 1 in his house for a short time previous to being brought up to the i Court Douse. The prisoner then sat down, but immediately got up, when the crier to all who, impatient, ea gerly cry out, 'what better can wo do?' the Stonewall example strong ly and firmly speaks. There is a kind of pride, a decent dignity dm to ourselves, w hich. spite of our mis fortunes, may be maintained and cherished to the end." Addressing the older Virginian he said the glories of old things must pass away with the weakness est hey included, ami advised Un voting to bear their lot patiently and uncomplainingly. He urged them not to emigrate; to take their fallen fortunes as liest they may, and from their present small beginnings again work forward. He asked them where they would go if they left Virginia. Would they leave the United States? If they supposed the United States not lree. where else on earth did they expect bftiiiil a people as free ! He exhorted tlicin to a life of work, of constant, unob trusive, quiet labor, and said of Vir matte the usual proclamation prior i K'ia, "i uns connection, " i len to passing sentence of death. v hich j "''7 W,M' is. wooi"K her to its bright ,,0, .. . esitiai. ii ner mhin w ill nut sei'c customary manner ,,,. , i. ,.., t be one ami indivisible a new Vir ginia, greater, stronger, grander than ever was our Virginia." The orator stated his views as to the causes that accounted for Hk slow progress of Virginia, as coin pared with the other States. In brief they were that slavery mat ed a lauded aristocracy which wih iiiiiugonisnc io progress, ami repel I. nit to immigration. He stated at length the advantages of Virginia's inviting immigration now that sl.u cry was destroyed, concluding that thciv is still substance enough left in Virginia to insure her honor, ami more than restore her pre-eminence was done in the the Judge recapitulating very biielly the grounds on which the verdict of guilty hail L-t ) estab lished.

Judge could not only to Wilson said : "As the law now stands yon might be sentenced to immediate' ex ecution. The law puts that dis cretion in my hands; but inasmuch as that law is an e.r pout facto one as to you, I shall certainly not exer cise any discretion I may have to shorten your existence one hour. Moreover, you have a right to bring into court the wfioh- case to appeal from the decision of a court ml verse to you if there was anything wjung in the evidence anil the proceedings, ami God forbid i should deprive you of that opportunity of appeal. You shall be treated just as the law was when you committed the otic use, so that if the evidence docs not in the opinion of my learned brethren sus tain the conviction, time anil oppor tunity will be given you to move against it. if 1 have received evi dence such as ought not to have U't-ii received, or have put a wrong construction on any part of it, it will be open for you to make a complaint to that effect, and the pe riod of your execution will be de layed till the end of the next term, just as if that law hail not been passed, so as to titlbrd you an op Hrtiiuitv of appeal.
