In tbo year 1723, a young man who was serving his apprenticeship j in London to a master nail in.ikcr, cot leave to visit his mother, to Hyeud, the Christinas holidays. She liveda few miles beyonil Leale, in. Kent- He walked the journey, amr on h4 arrival at Dale, iu tUe even uig) Utu4hUllf((dued and Mao troubled with a bowel complaint, he applied to the btudlady of a pub lic house, who was acquainted with his mother, for a night's lodging. Her house was full, and every bed occupied; but she told him that if he would sleep witg her uncle, who had lately come, ashore, ami who was boatswain of an ludiaiuan, he should be welcome. He was glad to accept th oiler, anil after spend ing the evening with his new com rade, they retired to rest. In the middle of the night he was attacked with his complaint, and awakening his bedfellow, ho asked him the way to the garden. The boatswain told him to go through the kitchen, but aj he would find it dincult to open the door into the yard, the latch be- in;: out of order, he desired lmn to take a knife out of his pecket. with which he could raise the latch. The young man did as he was diieeted, and alter remaining hearly half an hour iu the j aid, he ret ..rned to his bed, but was much surprised to find his companion had risen and gone. l.t'ing impatient to visit his moth er and friends, he also rose liel'oie day and pursued his journey, and at riveo home at noon. The la.nllady who had been told of his intention to depart early, was not surprised ; but not seeing her uncle early 111 the morning, she went to call him. She was dread fully shocked to find the bed stained witii blood, and every impiiry after her uncle in vain. The alarm now became general, and on further ex amination, marks of blood were traced from the bedroom into the street; and at intervals down to the the ed''0 ot the piir head. Kumor was immediately busy, and suspicion fell, of course, on the young man, who had slept with him that he had committed the murder, and thrown the body over the pier into the sea. A warrant was issued against him, ami he was taken that evening at his mother's house. On his being examined and searched, marks of blood were discovered on his tliiit and trowsers, and iu his tuw-L-er. were a knife and a remark able silver coin, both of which the landlady swore positively were her uncle's property, and that she saw the yard, he fonnd the bandage: had come off his arm during the night, and that the blood was flow ing "fresh. Ueing alarmed he rose to go to the barber, who lived across the street, but a press-gang laid hold of him just as he left the public house. They hurried him to the pier where their boat was waiting; a few minutes brought them on board a frigate, then under way for the East Indies, and ho omitted ev er writing home to accouut for h's sudden disannearance. Thiir. were the chief circumstances explained by tho two friends thus strangely met. The s'lvTr coin being found in the posession of the young man, could only be explained by the conjecture, that when the lKiatswain gave him the knife in tho dark, it is probable that as tho coin was iu the same pocket it stuck between the blades of the knife, and iu this manner be came the strongest proof against him.

Herald says the prospect for farmers especially dairymen in that section, has not tor years been mine promising. 1-lcur, woolen and cotton goods, most articles the farmers have to buy, are cheaper than they have been liefore since, the war; while beef cattle, butter and cheese com mand hiffh prices and find ready sale. The market is so thoroughly cleared of cheese, on both sales ot tho water, that even a more than average production will not be likely to put the prices below the highest fie-ure sold at during last season while t'e liicreasea uumuer wno will turn their milk into cheese, will keep the supply of butter so reduced that remunerative prices are likely to be obtained by the butter makers. The season, too, opens auspiciously for the manufacture ot both nutter and cheese, as the winter has been such as to leave the ground in an excellent state for the grass crop. Vlt hough the demand for cheese making apparatus exceeds that of last. year, thercappears to be a strong disposition throughout the dairy re gion of New York to return to pri vate dairying, instead of sending milk to the cheese factories.
