to resent that insult as the occasion might tv

Mr. Edwartis said that in private conversa

he did not fee! called on lo explain anything.
Mr. Morris, of l'enn , would say in answer

Mr. Sherman that be was bitterly opposed to
the horrible doctrines of the Helper book,

would not vote for him. He knew that Mr.
Sherman was opposed to any interference

Scandal iv tbe4hurch.
A case in at present before one of tbe Eng
li.h Criminal Courts that excites great atten
■ ion throughout the country. The London
Times of December 17, in the course of an ed
itorial, thus states the circumstances:
"Mr. Boiiwell, formerly of Brattenose Col
lege, Oxford, is incumbent of St. Phillip., ;
Stepney, where he gei erally reside*, rooms
attached to the school room being Rtted tip
for his use. He is .1 married man, with one
• lull, urn! his wife, at the time of the com
mission of the alleged offence, kept a school
iv another part, of London, where Mr. Don
well occasionally visited ber. Ths lady im
plicated in the case was the daughter of a
clergyman named Vorath, liviog a: Newport,
in Monmouthshire. Last year Miss Torath,
then on a visit to Margate, became acquainted
wiih Mr. Boiiwell, wh.., it is asserted,gave
himself out as a widower, aad soon I. Mine
'he accepted -uitor of Miss Yoralh. lv De
cember the lady left Margate, in older, as her
friends thought, to return to Newport, but,
instead of d.ing so, stie remained, it is said, a
fortnight in London, iv lodgings hired tor her
by Mr. Boiiwell. There is uu necessi y for
following the steps of the history ; but In May
last she paid a second visit to Margate, and
Miss Ameo, the friend with whom she bad
been stay ing, perceived thai she was pregnant.
Indeed, it the evidence is to be believed, there
can be no doubt that Mr. Bonwetl seduced the
lady muter a promise of marriage.
"Shortly alter the fortnight lv L >urion, Mr.
B mwell visited Newport, and there, according
to the evidence ot ihe lady's brother aad other
persons, was guilty of ilie grossest misrepre
sentations. He presented himself as Miss Yp
r»;h saccepted suitor, and -hen and ai subse
quent visits was introduced ia this character
to all the friends ef ibe family. Not only did
he a widower, but said that
•his friend the Bishop of Oxford' would per
form the marriage ceremony, nnd wished the
Rev. Hugh Williams, Chancellor of Llandaff,
to'assist, - after tin- iaslnon which had pre
vailed oi late. The murriage was fixed tor
June last, but before that time it began to he
rumored that Mr, B»aarell was a married
man. Mr Lewis Yorath, the brother, br .ke
oil' the match. In August it tame to ttie Bish
ip's ears that Mr. B mwell had passed him
self oil as a single man to a family in the
country, aud bud prevailed oa a lady to mar
ry bim. The public will be a little startled a:
bearing that this conduct was thought by the
Bishop worth? only of a Severe reprimand,'
and thai Mr. Boiiwell was sent back from Lon
don Utilise to teach morality to his dock. But
within a few days his Lordship received tv.-.
anonymous letters, winch caused him to
place the matter in the bands af the police,
and it was discovered that a c_fld bad been
b .m iv the school-boose at St. Phillip's Step
ney, and buried under suspicions eirenmstaa
ces. It is beyond a doubi that Miss Yorath
was suddenly taken with the pains of labor
while visiting .Mr. Bn.weli; that she gave
birth to a male child; aad that, alter remain
ing twelve days at the school h oi-.'. she was
takeu, with ihe child, to a hotel on the other
side of Loudon bridge. Here the child died,
aad was carried aw ay ami buried by an nt d> r
iil.-er 111 a colli ii with another b niy. The child
was exhumed, ami a Coroner's jury returned a
verdict that ir died of inanition, and in express

men, women and horses. Mrs. Austin waa
pulled out of the wai. r, bu' ber horse a .is
drowned. Captain Burdett held ou to the
rail of tbe bridge with one aim, which wept
him from going down.
Mr. Burdett wns for a time in extreme per
il, but was rescued. Mr. liana was ia the
middle of the bridge when it broke, ami weni
into the liver with bis horse, keeping ins seat
in the saddle; but both becoming involved in

on the foot which fractured a boae and bruis
