Sudden Death.?The many fr?ecds of
Ire. Jane E. Gainee, wife of Dr. William
Gainee, of Hanover, will be griered to
oar of her deoease. Her death, which
ocurnd at 5 o'clock yesterday morning,
'as very 6udden. She was in this city on
[oaday visiting her friends, and relumed
ome to tea, retiring to her bed in usual
ealth. About II o'olock she was taken
ith sick stomach. Her husband was
wakened by her retchings, and imme
lately gave her medicines to relieve it.
his nausea was succeeded by paralyBie,
nder which she expired in abont six
ours.

rnoon was caused by the burning of on
d oanal-boat in James river*
Large Fire in Manchester?Destruc
tion of $50,000 worth of Property.?
Yesterday morning about half-past 12
o'clock a fire occurred in Manchester in E.
T. Pilkinton'a tobacco factory, which waa
totally destroyed, and soon extended to a
lumber-house used for storing machinery
belonging to the Manchester Cotton and
Woollen Manufacturing -Company, which j
waa also consumed. A large framed build-1
ing known as " Bradley's House," and
used as dwellings by the factory operatives,1
and also the property of this company, was
next attacked by the devouring elements,
and, like the two other buildings named,
was entirely consumed in spite of the dea- j
perate efforts of the firemen and citizens to
sare them.
The steam fire engines from this city
were out promptly, but owing to the fact
that they had to cross the bridge at Seven
teenth street (the other bridge at Four
teenth street being under repair), so much
time was consumed in reaching the scene
of the conflagration that the Are had ex
pended its fury before their arrival. They
were, however, mainly instrumental in
saving adjoining property from destruction.
The fire was accidental, and, it is sup
posed, originated in the engine-room, a
wooden structure attached to the main
building. Mr. Pilkinton had ou hand
15,000 pounds of lampe in process of mana- i
facture, 25,000 to 30,000 pounds of loose
smoking tobacco, 100 cases containing about
6,000 pounds of smoking tobacco, packed
and stamped ready for shipment, and 35
hogsheads of leaf tobacoo. These, with
the fixtures, were all entirely destroyed.
The value of the tobacco destroyed is
estimated at $17,500, and the house and
fixtures at $25,000, making a total of
$42,500, on which there was an insurance
of $23,800, divided as follows: In the Albe
marle Insurance Company, $2,500 ; Valley
of Virginia Company, $2,500 ; Richmond
Banking and Insurance Company, $2,500 ;
Petersburg Savings and Insurance Com-I
pany, $2,500; Firemen and Merchants
Insurance Company of Petersburg, $2,500 ;
Insurance and Savings Company of Vir
ginia, $3,300; Georgia Home Company,
$5,000.
The buildings belonging to the Woollen
Company were insured in the Mutual In
surance Company of Virginia for $1,500.
The occupants of the dwellings burned
were poor persons?operatives in the fac
tories,?and though they saved most of
their household goods in a damaged con
dition, the loss falls very heavily upon
them.
Mr. Pilkinton'a loss is justly regarded
as a public calamity in consequence of
the number of ha/ids thrown out of em
ployment. There were employed in his
factory about 100 hands, about an equal
number of whites and blacks ; and besides
these there were employed by Messrs.
Woodhouse & Parham, in the manufacture
of paper boxes, usetTinthis factory, thirty
five white girls. All these hands are thus
suddenly thrown out of employment.
Mr. Pilkinton, we learn, will at once re
sume business.
Homicide at Charlotte Courthouse
Joe Holmes Killed?Verdict-of the
Coroner's Jury.?From persona who were
present at Charlotte Courthouse on Monday
we gather the following particulars of a
most lamentable homicide which occurred
there on that day, resulting ia the death of
Joe Holmes, a colored man, well known to
our readers as a member of the Virginia
Constitutional Convention.
It seems that early in the morniug Mr.
John Marshall, Jr., met with a colored man
named Minnis, who was formerly a slave of
Captain Gilliam, and asked him if he was
the man who attempted his life some time
ago. The negro, without making any reply
to the question, immediately raised his
bludgeon, as if to strike Marshall, who
drew? his pistol. The negro then took to
his heels, and waB pursued by Marshall and
aorne of his friends, and it was rumored
during the day Giat he had been killed by
Such, however, was not the fact; for he
was alive and well and at his work
yesterday. About half-past 2 o'clock on
Monday, while the rumor was rife, the
question of arresting Marshall was agitated,
and Holmes made himself very officioui m
regard to it. Marshall spoke to him about
it aDd he made Borne insulting reply, when
Mr. Boyd, a friend of young Marshall,
struck him with a stick. Holmes then
drew, or attempted to draw, his pistol,
when he was tired at by some unknown
party. Holmes immediately retreated, and
when near the court-house door, turned and
fired at the young men, when several shots
were fired at him, only one, however,
taking effect. Holmes had Btrength enough
left to walk into the court-house, and fell
^A coroner's jury was at once summoned,
who proceeded to take testimony as to the
cause of his death. They returned a ver
dict that " he came to his death by a pisiol
shot in the hands of some person unknown
to the iury." We learn that it was m evi
dence'before the jury that the deceased
fired the first shot.
Young Marshall had two companions,
Mr. Boyd (before mentioned) and a Mr. Mc
Morris. A young man was arrested in the
afternoon upon suspicion. He ^kn0*
ledged haviog drawn his^ pistol, but as
serted that he did not use it, and as it was
fully loaded and bore no marks of having
been recently discharged he was acquitted.
Later in the afternoon the Court ordered
the arrest of Marshall and Boyd, but they
had not been found at last accounts, and it
was rumored that they had made their es
cape from the county. #
The deceased was a prominent member
of the late constitutional convention?
prominent rather from the merriment he
created on rising to speak than from any
participation in thp serious work of the
body. He was good natured, polite, and
a great favorite with the reporters, to whom
he was specially courteous, and whose
daily appearance he always greeted with a
broad laugh. The nearest wo ever knew
him to oome to a quarrel was a laughable
row with pr. Bayne over the disputed |
ownership of a law-book. Joe s death will
be regretted by all who knew him in the j
convention, and by those who have laughed
over him in the " Humors of Reconstruc
tion," where he figured as the " great fire
eater."
Exhibition or Strawberries and Flow

Jommittee of the Horticultural and Pomo

bit flowers also.

THE PENITENTIARY IMBROGLIO.
SECOND DAY.
EXAMINATION COMMENCED.
An Interior Ylew of the Penitentiary
A Choir and a Police Court.
THIEYES NOT "WANTED.
Those Public Turnips and Potatoes.
The board of inquiry into the charges'
preferred against Burnham Wardwell, su-1
perintendent of the penitentiary, met again
yesterday in pursuance of previous day's
adjournment. Judge Meredith represented
Hovey and Thompson, the prosecutors, and
John G. Williams, Esq , was with Mr.
Chandler for the defence.
The examination was entered into upon
the charges of conspiring to aid in the
eeoape of prisoners, violation of revenue I
laws, ana appropriating public turnips and
potatoes to his own use.
We give below a sketch of the evidence :!
George F. Strother, clerk of the Board of j
Directors of the penitentiary, testified that
he knew Ford and Donovan, the two con-'
victs. He related the duties performed by
them the one as cutter of the shoe-shops,
and the other as clerk of the polioe court.
The police court did not exist before
Wardwell came.to the penitentiary. Wit-!
ness then narrated the particulars of the
escape of Ford and Donovan. Fairbanks,
a pardoned convict, came out to the peni
tentiary, and was in the clerk's office on
the day of their escape with Donovan and
Ford. ^ They subsequently went into the j
adjoining hall. After a while they were
missed, and upon investigation it was found 1
that they had changed their clothing. They 1
were eeen goiDg out of the yard. The sen- j
tinel had let them pass, they being so
disguised that he did not recognize
them. Ford and Donovan had access to I
the office in the performance of their du
ties. Mr. Wardwell wae up stairs in his
house when the escape was effected. He
was told of it, and at once gave pursuit.
He also discharged the sentinel on duty.
Fairbanks bad been pardoned a few days '
previous, and up to that time had been |
staying with the superintendent, declaring !
his intention to leave each day. Witness
did not know what the prisoners were doing j
in the office oa the evening of the escape.
Ihey must have been there by permission !
of Mr.Champion, the officer on duty. Fair
banks went out of the prison just pre
ceding Donovan and Ford, according to the
account of the sentinel. They must have J
passed out either by the permission of some
tfficer, or else through neglect of duty on
the part of the sentinel. Fairbanks re
turned to the penitentiary on the day after
the eecape, and remained with the super
intendent until the next evening, when he
left the city. Witness had never before
known of a superintendent's entertaining
a pardoned convict,
Mr. E. D. Champion testified that he was
at the penitentiary on the evening of the
escape. Ford and Donovan came to the I
office and asked to see Fairbanks. They
said they wished to see him before he went I
away. They were admitted into the office
by permission of witness, who sent up
stairs for Fairbanks, in the superintend
ent's house. As he came down, the prison
ers got up and went out into the hall to
meet him. Not over two moments elapsed
between the time that the parties had passed
out of the office and the time when the
escape was noticed. The prisoners were as
secure between the gates as in their cells.
They could not have passed out without
permission unless under a violation of orders
by the outer sentinel in allowing them to;
co so. Prisoners could not escape through !
the gate except in citizens'clothes. Witness
attached no blame to the superintendent.
He assumed all responsibility himself, and
told the superintendent that he expected to
be discharged. The outer sentinel was at
once discharged, and every exertion was
made to recapture the prisoners. Fair
banks came back to the penitentiary at
about 10 o'clock that night. Mr. Wardwell
was up in his house at the time of the
escape, and had no communication with
the prisoners when they were out in the
hall. Witness did not give permission to
the sentry to allow the prisoners to leave
the hall and go out. A number of prison
ers are allowed to remain in the yard after
locking-up time until searching time for)
the purpose of carrying water, etc. Ford
and Donovan were not engaged in carrying
water on the evening of their escape. Wit
ness did not know what they were there for.
They were singing with others in the yard.
They were not serenading the superintend
ent. Witness presumed they were prac
ticing for the choir. It was observed as a
general rule to lock up the prisoners at sun
eet during all seasons of the year. It was
customary to leave Ford's and Donovan's
cells open until 8 o'clock every evening.
Witness had seen tobacco brought into tho
prison for the use of the prisoners, but
could not say who brought it in. He had I
seen it in boxes and papers both. It had
no United States revenue stamp on it that
witness could see. Had not known the su
perintendent to bring any tobacco. The
bills for the tobacco were made out in Mr.
Burr's name, and approved by the B;ard
of Directors in his fa7or. Gould not say in
whose vehicle the tobacco was brought in.
The man who brought it. in did not belong
to the penitentiary. .
Mr. Thompson testified that he was in
Mr. Champion's offi:e, with Mr. Theodore
Wardwell, on tho evening of the ercape.
Donovan and Ford came to the office and sat
down. They asked Theodore Wardwell where
Fairbanks was. He replied that he was'
up stairs in the superintendent's office.
Wardwell did not seem inclined to go. Mr. |
Champion went np. Witness went out into
tho rear yard ; heard men singing ; went
to hear them ; saw confusion in the offic,j
^nd upon inquiry found that Ford and
Donovan had escaped. Went out in front
of the penitentiary and asked Mr. Burn
ham Wardwell where Fairbanks wae. He
replied that he was up stairs. Witnees
suggested that he 6hculi arrest him ; to
which reply was made that Fairbanks was
clear. Witness, by superintendent's per
mission, went down town and gave infor
mation of the escape at the police station.
He returned that night and went up into
the superintendent's house. While there
he saw Fairbanks pass down stairs, as he
Baid, to get ready to go away. Witness
suggested to superintendent the propriety
of his going down town to institute mea
sures for recapture. Superintendent said
that he need not. He did not want them
there, as Donovan was a thief, and he would
be compelled to punish Ford if he was
brought back. About thirty prisoners were
left out in the yard after locking-up time. I
Did not know what for, :Some of them
were required for service in the choir.
Witness had seen a large paper package of
tobacoo in the penitentiary without revenue
stamp on it. Witness was employed at the
penitentiary as interior guard. He was
discharged about three months after tho
escape. He did not know what for. The
discharge simply stated that his services
were no longer required. He asked for
reasons, but they were not given him. He
had stated to several parties before his dis
charge that Wardwell did not want the pri
soners brought back. He could not remem
ber whom he told. Wardwell ordered wit
ness to go and give information of the
escape at police headquarters, but made no
mention of offering a reward. Witness was
prosecutor in this case, and employed coun
sel. Counsel was paid by Messrs. HoTey,
Luther Lee (general agent of peniten
tiary), and witness. The tobacco alluded
to was tied up in brown paper. There
were four packages in one. Witness's
object in examining the package was
to get a piece of tobacco, and not to see
about revenue stamps. He noticed that
there was no stamp on it. Superintendent
had about sixty hogs in the penitentiary at
one time. They were fed from the same
piles of potatoes and turnips from which
the prisoners were supplied. Witness had
seen this repeatedly. He had also seen the
cauldron in the yard boiling with potatoes
and turnips for superintendent's hogs and
cows.
At this point the Board adjourned until
9 o'clock this morning.

Citarlbs B. 8*y?opb._We aie pained to rc
ro:d the death of this estimable and accompli 'bed
ventltmin. which took place at his residence in
New York clt* on rnndiy last. Mr. Skymoub, an
ungllshmui by blith. had for the past twenty
years found his home In this country. During
that time he had by bis cultivated and genial man
cerj, added to his scholastic acquirements, be
come endeared to a la*ge circle of fricntis.. Those
of ns ln'Rlcl mond who, daring our visits to Sew
York cry, ha J been fortnn&le enough to come
w thin the sunlight of his warm f?lend--h'p, can
appreciate the loss which has fallen upon thscom
rnun t/ la whose raldst he will appear no m're.
Yr. Sit ?mocr had been connected wbh the press
since his arrival in this country. As an art and
dramatic critic be occupied the foremast rank,
and the artistic profession wilt long suffer for the
wantofoneto till the vacancy left t>y tIs demise.
At this dlstince we can In spirit only drop tie
