TUESDAY MORNING.JULY 11, 1665.
FURTUKR PARTICULARS OP THE SBOOT
i N•; AFFAIR AT BOWMAN VTLLB, CANA
DA WEST—A MAN SHOT FOR KEEFINti A
LADY’S LETTERS.
The shooting of a man name Kerr by a young
woman named Muisou, near Bowiuanville. Cana
da West, was announced by telegraph some days
since. The particulars are given by the Bow
manville Statesman. It appears that Jas. Kerr
was keeping tavern in Orono last summer, and
Mias Munson, who was teaching school in the
same place, boarded at his house. They were
quite intimate, aud rumors prejudicial to Miss
Munsm's character obtained circulation. The
Statesman says :
Early in February last, Miss Munson left Orono
to go West, and was followed to Toronto by Kerr.
They met in the sitting-room of a hotel there,
and Miss Munson asked Kerr to return her the
letters which she had previous written him. This
he refused to do, aud. according to her
story, forcibly detained her in au adjoin ng
room all night. From that time to the present
she has been living with a Miss Smith. On Mon
day evening Miss Munaou, accompanied by Miss
Smith proceeded by railway Irom Toronto to New
touville, where they stayed all night. Oa Tuesday
forenoon they came to A ewcastle, ami there hired,
at Mr. Bradley’s livery stable, a burse and buggy,
stating that they wished to goto Leskard. They
went uorth to Ballvdutt, and on their return at
night stopped at Watson’s Hotel, in Orono. Mr.
Kerr was sent for and obtained, and. after some
delay, he acceded to Miss Munson's request to ac
company them to Hampton, and then leaving
them then* return the horse and buggy to Mr.
Bradley. With this underat.nding thev left Oro
no, ccnring around to Hampton by tne longest
route. When North of Howm&uriile two miles
and a half and Just after passing the toll gate,
Miss Munson, unknown to Kerr, drew a revolver
nnd shot him, the hall entering the left side and
passing through the body, lodged in the right
side. Kerr at tirst thought ho had been shot by
some )«i.-on on the road, and at once started his
horse on a run, and at the same time exclaiming
• I’m shot.” One of the two women took the reins
and stopped the horse, when Kerr again Aeard a
pistol click, and suddenly reaching out, gras|«d
the revolver la the hands of Miss Munson. Not
teing able to wrest it from her, he threw himself
Irom the carriage, and it passed ou unbolt dis
tance. Kerr then returned on foot a little over a
mile and a nuarter, to the residence of W. H.
i mm. wnrrv ne suugiii nun oumiuru oNuimum.
lie was speedily conveyed to Brodies hotel, in
this town, and medical aid was immed a ely
procured. 'Die deed was committed about
two o'clock on Wednesday morning, anil Mr.
Kerr reached Bowmauville about live. His case
was at once pronounced almost hopeless, and he
now lies at the point of death After perpetrat
ing the rash act. Miss Munson and her companion
returned to Bownianville. and stayed at the house
of a lriend for a time; then went to Newcastle to
return the conveyance, and at the same time Miss
Munson voluntarily placed heiself in the hands
of Mr. Bradley, as under arrest, he being a con
stable. She confessed to him that she bad will
ingly shot Kerr, and exhibited the utmost feeling
at being placed in snch a position. On searching
her Mr. Bradley found the revolver from which
the fatal bullet had been discharged, and also a
bottle of laudanum; both ot which »re now in
his possession. She did not try in the least to
escape; but states that tier companion was to
tally ignorant of the whole affair, and that she
alone had any knowledge of the plot—Miss
s-mith not lieing a party to it either as
an accomplice or participant. The pris
oner was arraigned before Jeorge Haines, Esq.,
at the Town Hall. BowmanvlKe, on Wednesday,
and pleaded g uilty to shooting Kerr. She was
committed to jail at Cobourg, to stand her trial at
the next assizes. Miss Munson could not be per
suaded by parties lo plead not guilty to the
charge ; she said that she had done the deed and
would not tell an untruth to shield heiself —
Her only regret is for the sake of her family, for
whom she feels ihe greatest grief. She fur
ther states that her reason for shooting Kerr
was that he would nut return her letters and me
naced her with the threat of making known all
their transactions if she did not comply with bis
wishes. Miss Munson Is a young lady of good
accomplishments, welt educated, and holds a
lirst-class teacher's certificate front the Toronto
Normal School. Her father is highly resnecta
Me, and possessed ot more than ordiuary intelli
gence, and must sadly feel the shock occasioned
by the erring one's misdeed?. The family are well
to do in the world, and will doubtless have the
sympathies of the entire community in this their
time of trial. Mr. Kerr, lias a wife, who is highly
spoken of, and three children. They were sent
for. and remain with the dying man.
The ball was extracted from Ken’s side on
Wednesday afternoon, by Dr. Keid; and at this
time—4 o’elock Thursday mo. ^g—the sofferer
is still alive, though very weak. It is thought
tie cauuot live.
It is stated that Miss Munson previously car
ried a revolver, with the intention of shooting
either Kerr or herself, and that K- rr took the
weapon from her and still retains it. She ex
pressed a determination of putting an end to her
life on the first opportunity, and tried twice to
shoot herself yesterday, but the revolver would
not go off. The nnfoiInnate creature mnst be
laboring under temporary insanity, and driven to
desperation through fear of her tormentor. We
cannot bat feel pained while chronicling these
facts; bnt deem it best that a correct version of
the affair shonld he given to the public, as sa
many false reports are In circulation.
SHOCKING TRAGEDY—A DOUBLE MURDER
IN A HOUSE OF ILL-FAME—A WOMAN
KILLS TWO MEN.
From the Philade'phia Bulletin, Jnly G.
One of the most desperate and shocking cases
of murder that lias taken place in oar city for
years past, occurred between 4 and 10 o’clock on
Monday night, at a tavern on Third street, below
Girard avenue, Sixteenth Ward. The principal
in this tragedy was a woman named Adella Rid
ley, aged about 34 years, who stabbed two bro
thers named Joseph and Isaac Sides, causing the
instant death of the former and indicting wound*
of such a character on the latter as to cause his
death about 10 o’clock last night. Without pre
vious quarrel, she drew a large dirk, which she
nlKnna.f tii'iou intli I.lvtfinll llBi'lf ntlllffr thl*
left side, piercing the heart. Side* staggered,
►e zed a chair, witn the iuteuti„u— it is supposed—
of defending himself, and raising it about tbree
(eet, fell dead. Isaac Sides, Joseph's brother, who
was present and witnessed the whole affair, at
tempted to detain the mnrderess. with the inten
tion of having her arrested. He seized her by the
head and pushed her downward, wheu, with the
same weapon covered with blood, she stabbed
him several tiroes in the stomach, indicting fear
ful wounds, from which Ids entrails protruded.—
He lingered in great pain until about 10 o'clock
last night, wheu he expired. Aa soon as the in
furiated woman had finished her horrible deed
she hastened to her home, exchanged her dress
for a complete sailor’s rig, and, in this male at
tire, was about making her escape. She was ar
rested by the police aa she was about passing ont
by the back entrance. When taken into custody
■lie had nothing to say, and has not yet made any
explanation In regard to the sad affair. Ske w
ratber piepossessing In looks, has short curly hair,
and much becomes sailor's attire. When we saw
her at the station house, she very much remiuded
us of a landsman about nineteen years of age —
She was fully committed by the coroners jury to
answer the crime of double murder.
THK BRITISH PARLIAMENT.
A London letter says *’ The termination of the
present session of Parliament is now officially
announced for the 10th o! July—it may happen
soonir. Wednesday disposed of the Testa abo
lition bill, the last party light of the season, a
measure claiming religious equality for Dissent
ers, who have hitherto bean debarred from tak
ing the degree of Master or Doctor of Atta at
the University of Oxford, or becoming members
of Convocation there, on obsolete, semi-political,
semi-theological grounds, gome few details of
other bills remain, but nothing of importance. The
government is understood to Lie desirous of getting
the general elections over before hat vest,- acd the
members and newspapers are doing their best to
accelerate ihat consummation, and the Morning
Post announces the approaching retirement from
public life of Lord Palmerston. Apropos of the mo
ribund Parliament, it is not v.ry nlgbly spoken of
by its cotemporaries. ~ Let ua christen it,'' saya
the Telegraph, “as it pastes away—the lateness
of the ceremony will be in accordance with iti
aontU of easy-going apathy—and now and hence
forth know the expiring assemblage as ‘The Pai
nter Parliament.’ • * * • It was
created to carry a reform b 11. which it never even
discussed , It was convened by a Tory Miaiater to
witness an unbroken tenancy of the treasury
bench by Whigs. It passed a new game law,
paralyzed a great Idea in education, and did Its
worst to embroil ua in war with Prusaia or Den
mark. • .* * The only thing that
made it glitter waa the matchless financial ad
ministration of Mr. .Gladstone.” To which may
lie added ibla inestimable service: It kept<>ut the
Tories, and thus prevented the certain recognition
and Intervention In behalf of the slaveholder's
Confederacy.
THE SPECIE OP THE NEW ORLEANS BANKS.
The New Orleans True Delta, June 96, contains
the following items
U has at last been positively ascertained what
waa the fate of the specie sent from here by the New
Orleans Banka at the time the city was cantuied
by the Union forces. Immediately upon the sur
render of the Confederate armies a Commission
was sent by the Banks into the " Confederacy ’’ to
look after, and, if possible, to seenre this money.
Tire Commission consisted of Mr. Irvine, now act
law cashisr of one of the backs, and Mr. West, an
old merchant of this city.
Telegraphic advices have been received from
them which do not leave room to doubt that the
money was all used by tire Rebel authorities prior
to and at the time of the grand collapse, ft has
also been pretty clearly ascertained that a large
snmof money was appropriated by some of the
high Confederate dignitaries for their own per
soual benefit. There were about 600,UUO of
this specie in all, and its loss will proves severe
blow to the Banks. The agents of the Banks—
the gentlemen above named—are oa tbelr way
back to New Orleans.

upon to satisf/ a judgment of $39.48 in favor cf
a doctor. The doctor had attended upon tie

the chair seized, the only portion of her worldly
effects that could be got boll of. The chair is
about three feet wide. The chair is to be sold
at constable's sale in a day or. two, and any one
in want of a settee, a loniige, a chart h pew. or
a buggy body, can buy this chair and convert ,
it to the use required. On a pinch, it would
