. W. Oltll, Kdltor. BRADFORD, FRIDAY, MAY 8, 1863. Eiecution of Samuel Mills, the Fran conia Murderer. The extreme penalty of the JawH was executed ujiou tbe person of Samuel Mills, for the crime of mur der, at the jail in llaverhill, on the Oth in st. All of our rentiers aie so well acquainted with the circumstan ces of the ninnlor, captuic of the prisoner, his trial, confinement and repeated Attempts to escape, that we need not mention theni here. Up to the day of his execution, Mills had entertained hopes of escaping the penalty of the law, and so strong was this hope on the day prcceed ing his death, that in answer to the question, 4-Do j-ou realize that y.ou are to be hung to-morrow P he ex pressed the opioion that there would be a suuicient number present op posed to capital punishment to pre vent the execution, but Said: "if they think best to hang me I bhall try to nerve myself np to it." Ifo never fioemud to realize the enormity of Iits crime or the awful doom that awaited him. The bru tality of his crime, his conduct dur ing his trial and confinement, and the (stolid indifference which he maintained during the last hours of his life, showed him to be almost devoid of nil the attributes and feelings which distinguish man from the brutes. Although possessed of a low or der of cunning which enabled him to devLe means to escape from Ids prison yet he lacked judgment to profit by it. He slept well the night before the execution and ate a hearty break fast. He was attended by ttev. John Ciowan, pastor of the Metho dist church at Haverhill, who was his (spiritual adviser; and by his own request ro one else, except a few whom he designated, was per mitted to see him in his cell. At about tight o'clock in the Morning a crowd began to assemble about the prison. The morning was cold and dismal with indications of a Btorm. A noticeable feature, of tho crowd was the number of fe males present. Constant arrivals on tdl the roads leading to the village noon swelled the l.unibt r to about 3000. Tho scaffold w as erected on the cast side of the juil, the b-am pro jeeung iroin uie winnow rt tne cell formerly occupied by Mills, and passing through the aperture which he made by cutting out th bars and through which he escaped near ly a year ago. At 10 o'clock Sheriff (V. S. Kiev cub and his assistants took tho pris oner from his cell and pioeeede.l to the scaffold. Mills, appeared a little pale but no traces of (-motion were visible, and he maintained a stolid indifference throughout. His long, busby hair was brushed back, am: his low forehead, deep sunken eyes, massive neck, and heavy under jaw covered with a straggling board gave him a most repulsive appear ance. He. was handcuffed and his feet were fettered. The eh rgyman ami a few others took their places! on the KcalYold, then came the sher iff with the prisoner, followed by the leprcscntativos of the press, eight in number, who were assigned ik place on the, platform. The prisoner was placed on the drop and while the rope was being adjusted about his neck he was gaz ingaround on the crowd and talking to those near him in an undertone. The hheriifthen rend tho death war rant and llev. Mr. Gowan offered a most earnest, and affecting prayer. Tlie sheriff then Haiti to the prisoner, "Samuel Mills, you have lii'lceii min utes to live. Il you haw anything to say you now have an oppoitui.ily to say it." Mills rcplkd to the slier iff, "I don't know as I have much to pay f but alter a moments hesitation ho Haiti to the crowd, "(leiitlcincii, J am guilty Sam Mills is guilty hut I think I have made my peace with God. I wiil show that I die like a man. lf'l have done any. tiling wrong I hope the people will forgive me." ii eease.l (.peaking for moment, and considerable com motion was visible in the crowd ; wit old ni.ni exclaiming, "(i!,y )o Ci'lL. " WImI,. . !,,, I,,,,,,, ,,,,,. III" Vlll .t C rllmv ,.,.,, .. Mill then said, "Tell the folks u aruund that Sam. Mill lived hUu limn un.l did like a niun-tbal he was guilly of his crime." His anus mid legs were then eon lined by a canvas sack which reach. ctl from his neck below Ids km cs The. Chaplain then advanced and )ok MhJcv.c of the prisoru r. He ' 41,1 10 th' cuopiain, i haven't got nothing against any man," ami to the question of the Chaplnin, " How shall I tell the people you died T" he replied, "Happy.-' The sheriff again looked nt his watch and in formed the prisoner that he bad four minutes to live, upon which Iills almost inaiulibly uttered the worus, "on, iioai' and tins was the only time he expressed any emo tion. The sheriff then advanced with the black cap in his hand, bid the prisoner farewell, and as he was about to adjust it Mills took his last look on earth, and easting his. eyes over the crowd said, "Good bye. gentlemen good luck to ye !'' The b.ack cap was then drawn over his lace, and the sheriff took his posi tion to spring the fatal drop. He then said, " Samuel Mills, your time upon earth is up. May God have mercy on your soul," and as the watch marked 10: 150. the drop fell and tho prisoner was launched into eternity. The. body fell about nine feet in side the prison yard, and out ol sight of the crowd. Death ensued with scarcely a straggle. After hanging -15 minutes tho body was examined hv Dr. Carbee, and cut down. The neck was broken by the fall. Scarcely had the body disappered below tlw, plat.fyrm when the crowd began to cry out to know how Kion they could see the body;, and to satisfy their hungry curiosity sheriff Stevens was obliged to carry the body into the street in front of the jail. This was the fourth execution that has taken place in that town since its organization, and it ought to be the last one to take place in public. Mills evidently hail some friend outside, as within the last two weeks he had been supplied with a file and knife. About a week before his ex ecution he succeeded in freeing him self from his .shackles, but was dis covered before he hail made much progress towards getting out.

Tho State Convention of Union Soldiers and Sailors, held at Mont l'lier, on Tuesday, pursuant to the call of tho Rational Conference and State Executive Committee, was fairly attended, harmonious and en thusiastic. The Convention was called to or der by Gen. tleo. J. Stannard, who in a few words explained its object, and nominated Ueu. Stephen Thom as as Chairman, who was unani mously elected. Sergeant Warren Gibbs was elected Secretary. Cen. Stannard said that while in Washington recently, he had ascer tained that the mimacy object of the convention was to bring about the nomination of some good, relia ble, loyal soldier, as President, such as General Grant, and at the timo the call was issued, it was supposed there would bo some opposition to the General's nomination. This ob ject was now dune away villi, lint there were other matters pertain ing to the intercrts anil associations of the Soldiers of the Union, that it was desirable to perpetuate. The main jiurjio.se of the convention now was to bring the soldiers of the country into better acquaintance and to jirovido for holding a series of conventions during the Presiilen- tion Campaign.

Editoe : The following brief sketch of Madame Feller by M. Louis Tasche, (Principal of the Mission School at Grande Ligne, and compatriot of Mme .,) cannot fail to interest all who love the cause of Christ ami of Missions, and es pecially those who have wau;hrd the French Canadian Mission from its commencement, and known some thing of the life and labors of this noble woman. The translation was made in haste and is quite literal. If you consider it worthy a place in your columns, please give it to your readers. C. E. S. Madame Feller. The father of Madame Henrietta Feller, M. Odin, and his estimable wife, (a descendant of the ancient Huguenot refugees,) were vine cul tivators at Montaguy, a village at tho foot of the Jura Mountains, Cmiton, Yaud, Switzerland, where she was Corn Ajuil 1800. Being invited two or three years afterward to take charge of the can tonal hosjiital at Lausanne, Mons. Odin removed there w ith his family. There the remarkable intelligence and amiability of the young lleuri ette gained for her the esteem and affection of the jihysicians and sur geons of tho establishment, and she began to assist them when she was only fourteen years of age. Thus was laid the foundation of that med ical knowledge w hich gained for her an entrance to many homes and hearts that would have otherwise been closed. He rare physienl, moral and intel lectual qualities made her the admi ration of the society at Lausanne, as well as the juide and joy of her own family. And at the age of L'U she married Mons. Louis Feller, a very intelligent and aininble man, tliougn not a Christian. Three years later she gave back to God her only child, a trial which jnovetl tube one of the means Ho made use of to bring her to himself. Feing a member of ihe National Church, she was very well satisfied, us so many others are, with a high standard of morality. A young stu deiiL,who boarded with her was the first who had the courage to speak with her of her sinful condition by nature, and of salvation by faith. Brought to see her own righteous ness as but filthy rags, she felt so deeply her conditio), Uiat she be came seriously ill, juid her husband several times called in their physi cian. After passing thiough deep water, a condition of soul hotter felt than described by the Christian, she received light first from a sermon " The Law and the Gospel," by the learned and poetic Louis Manuel, her jiastor. Soon she was brought to see clear ly and to embrace Jesus as her only and adorable Saviour, through read ing a tract entitled "The Evangeli cal Foliel.'' Then, transported with joy and gratitude, and in the full possession of that j.eaee " which passeth nil understanding,'' she oltcn sjicni hours in th fourth story of her house, where alone, unmo lested, she could give thauks to the Giver of this peace, nllhcugh some times on account of the fullness of her emotion she could only say, " Glory be to God in the highest ; peace on caith, go id will towards men." With gie;tt intensity and jiei se verance, she then prayed for the con version of her husband, and He who says, ' For what knowest tl , () wife, whether thou shall, save thy husband f" 1st Cor. 7: Hi, heartland answered. The great joy she then experi enced was soon, however, to give place to sadness, for he who had be come doubly dear to her, was called up higher. She became a widow at the age oi i veiity six. Thus the Master was preparing the great and noble soul by a remarkable series of blessing, of joy s and of severe tri als for yrent usefuliicsj in U w. yard. Soon afterward she became asso eUteil with one of her friends in a Mure '.nIh'cIi soon furnished her with the means of becoming inoiv useful to her fellow men. Meanwhile her heart was going out toward Mission work, for which she ditl notecase to pray, not however awaiting in idle ness, direction from God, but devot ing herself to the sick, the j.oor, the nrilictcd, and especially to prisoners, as their numerous grateful letters testify, ,she might have been often seen alone with her little lantern, traversing the narrowest streets of Imiisiiiiiic at ti very Into hour, coin ing from soiue lonely cell. Some years later she wrote J " Af ter Hie death of the dear child and husband which God in His love gave me, nnd in His love also took away, my liemt burned with the dMre to be exclusively devoted to Ilia ser vice. At first I put away the de sire because I knew it to be contra ry to the wishes of iny family, and ! also because I was afraid I might be deceiving myself in entertaining the idea, but being convinced that God called me I resisted no longer, and during the seven or eight years which followed, I liesought him con stantly to make plain my path and show me what I had to do for Him." Alter having joined the church of the Dissenters, where she found aore spiritual lite, Madame Feller formed the acquaiutauce of Itev. Louis Itoussy (then a student in Mission Institute) in whom she had until her death a humble ami worthy as well as zealous and faithful co adjutor. Listening to the voice of conscience and the pressing ajipeul addressed to his friend by ltev. U. Olivier of Lausanne, theu at Montreal, they both felt that God had assigned them Canada as tbe field of their la bors. Taking counsel neither of flesh or of blood, in rclaiiou with no socie. ami thus more directly dejiendcm ujion Gotl and their own resources, they set out at. the close of the sum mer to the great grief of their friends, Madame F. esj)ecially,whose health was extremely delicate. Her physician, the late M. Laharpe. said to Mons. Koussy,J ' You w ill have the sail privilege of seeing her die on the sea, and of burying her be neath it." Nevertheless, under the care of Him who has power to kill and make alive, after a long voyage, they reached Montreal in safety, on the 31st of October, l,s;:."i, to the great joy of their friends, the Olivier'. During tbe winter Madame Fel ler labored in the city w ith Mons. and Madame Olivier, teaching a school for Canadian children, visit ing, evangelizing, &e. At the same time M. Itoussy, desiring to seize upon every favorable opj.ortunity for doing good, accepted a situation as schoolmaster at Grande Ligne, thus laying the foundation of the first evangelical church in Canada. The health of M. and Mine Olivier obliging them to return to Switzer land in the spring (lSo(j) Mine. 1 found herself (on account of jiriest ly opjHTsition) in an exceedingly dif ficult position. She aftevwnrds w rote, I had foreseen all the ditli eulties of a missionary life, its iso lation, neglect and jiovcrfy, and even death in a hospital, and therefore could not hesitate." Understanding, however, the in conveniences ami weakness of an isolated jiosition, she felt it her du ty to work in concert with Mons. Itoussy thus more dircct'y uniting their ell'orts. With this aim she es tablished herself at St. John, theie unfolding the standard of the cross, and also visiting regularly Grande Ligne, where the wink of the Lord was already prospering. Opposition of the enemy rendered her sojourn at St. John unfruitful, and judged,-' said she, " that my place was at Grande Ligne. The family in whose house M. Itoussy had held meetings, having become Protestanls, oll'ered me their attic and I accepted it, separating it into two eoniiMrlnieiits, a sleeping room and school room." In October, Is.'ii! she commenced her .school with 12 children. Soon the number in creased (in spits of the opposition from priests) to ".o, not including the adults of the evening school. In June, the heat of the attic be coming insupportable, she trans feneil her scholars to a bam. During this time M. Itoussy, who was forced to abandon his school, was ju-eaching far ami near. The present Mission building was built in is 111. Then in Grande Ligneand the immediate vicinity 12 hail left the ltoinish church, Tin- woik now began to develop rapidly through the establisl -nt of a school upon a better plan, the opening of new stations and incrcas i d number of missionaries, and her womlei fully active mind had new Scope. As her life since then is generally well known, we will only say that outside of her labors at homo nnd the ethical ion and conversion of her dear Canadian j.eople, she made "0 visits to the United States from 1.S.1S to l(it, for the Mixtion, and that often in a (date of great bodily weakness. In 151, through the ndvieo of l.hysicians and urgent entreaties of friends, she consented to puss seve ral months in Florida, where Mm Miulieil attentively IM carefully tlie liK hii.e of rhe first resurrection and the second coming of Christ The 15th clinptcr of Paul to the Corinthians h one which sho es pecially loved, and Mm wished these word to I iiRrsved upon hff tombstone. " And as we have borne the Image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heaVen ly." 1 Cor, 15:49. In 1859 she visited her native country hoping to gain strength of body, and also to pass a few weeks in England for the pnrpose of in teresting Christiana there in the evangelization of Canada. Her streugth however was not sufficient for the latter. Her princijial aim, indeed her only aim, her constant desire was to glorify her Saviour in doing good- to all, in leading souls to Jesus. In the midst of physical infirmi ties and w eakness her noble heart and high intellectual capacities were actively occupied in the work of her Master in the missionary family and among the dear Canadians. During the last weeks of her life here, as if she had a presentiment of her near departure, she seemed to us to be redoubling her efforts for the iust ruction ami especially for the conversion of our scholars. In her last sickness she exclaimed joyfully, "Oh, how satisfied lam with my Tuesday," referring to the last day in which she had left her room, and whose evening after L0 o'clock she had spent in jiraying with the boys in the chajiel anil in her own room. Finally, on the morning of the -'Oth of March, after an illness of four days, she left this earthly tab ernaele to go and be with Jesus. Her last words were, "Oh, Life, the life which is in Jesus bv t-iiih bv faith alone.'' " Go. i su'd she to the two friends standing by her bed, n. .in, I 1,-11 ti .., n, ;i ' Iliiv, till I UiJO. ii, , , , those who Iim.1 assembled for reli - gious services) that the time is short; that they must be ready, be established, be grounded in Christ by faith.-' May her faith, her z,.a; for tin conversion of souls, her love fur her Saviour, her incessant activity in his service bo the inheritance of all her fellow-laborers and suceessois ! Lot is Pasi'iii;. In closing this sketch will you al low i.ie to insert the following para graph from the Montreal Witiuw the day after the funeral. " The occasion which called fuitb so many tokens of warm ail'et tion and deep respect was no ordinary one. Its like never occurred m Can ada before and never can occur again. . It is only once that acorn jiany can assemble around the coffin of the founder of evangelical mis sions among tin: French Canadian peojilo, and such was Madame Fel ler; for, although she was preceded by a Swiss clergyman, yet he only laboied for a short time and left the field.
