letter of Mr. II. N. Hirscb, the sample-mer
chant, which we "published yesterday, con
tained some remarks upon the condition of
the city jail, and his experiences while con
fined there, that have called forth the follow
ing reply:
" November 7, 1873.
" In justice to the prisoners of this insti
tution, as well as myself, I ask you to pub
lish the enclosed, which I certify to be the
true state of the case. I defy the world for
cleaner colls than those of our jail.

November 7, 18
Messrs. Editors,?My atfeutiou has been
called to the statement of Mr. Hirsh, in the
Philadelphia Press, which I hope you will
grant ine space in your paper to contradict.
The portion I wish to reply to is this :
" The twenty-four hours I spent in the
lock-up will not soon be effaced from my
memory. Kept in a common felon's cell
with two inveterate drunkards, surrounded
ny an army of mice and other animals, per
fume de cesspool, locked in from fresh air at
5.30 P. M., I bad to go through a night of
horror in the above-stated condition, envel
oped in a rotten blanket and swarming with
vermin, reusing sweetly on the bare and
very far from cleanly floor, listening to the
rattle of gnawing mice, fighting a regiment
of rats in their attempt, to feast on my com
paratively well-fed body. 1 could not even
try to while the time away by uu effort at
conversation with jny two boon compa
nion!-." .
I have this to say, that when Mr. Hirsh
was brought to the city jail I took him in
the cell which I now occupy and which is
one of the be.-t and cleanest cells ill the jail,
ind instead of his having to lay on the bare
tloor ne Had a mattress and six clean blan
kets (which are not the property of the jail)
to cover with, and in which no vermin can
be found. And as for annoyance, his being
n the cell with me was all that I experi
?nced?for I have occupied this cell for ten
nonths and have the first rat to sec yet He
;peaks of the rats attempting to feed on his
'comparatively well-fed body." I have no
loubt Ik* has been well fed, judging from
vhat he got the jailor to send out and get
lim to live on the next day, viz.: five cents'
vorth of apples, ten cents' worth of bread,
ive cents' worth of butter, and two fivo
eut cigars to smoke after he had eaten bis
learty meat
As to the bill of fare, of which he cotn
ilains, I have never heard any grumbling
s to its quantity or quality. For breakfast
re have alternately molasses, bread, and eof
?e; herrings and coftce; and cold pork and
ufl'ec. Dinner: Pork and beans,and bread,
?d beef soup and breud. Aud iu my hum-;
le opinion we fare better than Mr. Hirscb
id when he a nil Miss were kicked
ut of the hotel at Charlotte, N. C.
I happen to be acquainted with Mr. Flirsch,
rid I think he is one who overrates himsclt
msiUerably. John Q. Bryan,
Prisoner at city jail.
The blanket glveu to Mr. Ilirseh was a
new one. und never had beeu unfolded for
use until handed lira by me.
JuhnC. Fkanklin, Atsistant Jailor.

A Terrible Crime Brought to Light.
A ui:r.wa\ soldier confesses a
HERDER WHICH HE COM.HIT
TER NEAR FREDERICKS
Bl<RG IN 1860.
DETAILS OF THE AFFAIR.
Mr. F. W. llanewinekel. German consul
in this city, received yesterday from the Ger
man Ambassador at Washington the confes
sion of a man named Hermann Rudolph
Wilbelm Yollrotb, who accuses himself of
having murdered a man near Fredericks
burg, Va., on the 22d of April, 1889, under 1
rather singular circumstances.
Tim CONFESSION OF THE MAN
was forwarded to Washington in the Ger
man language just as it was taken from Yoll
roth's own lips at Strassburg, on the 22d
of last September. At the time the confes
sion was made the accused was under mili
tary arrest for some offence, and it was made
in one of the division prisons to Harseim,
Government auditor. The otl'ence for which
he was arrested is not given in any of the
papers which accompany the statement, but
the confession in German, the translation,
descriptive list of the accused, etc., were
yesterday placed in the hands of the Secre
tary of ttie Commonwealth, in order that he
may lay che matter before Governor Walker,
who has already taken the necessary steps to
ascertain the
TRUTH OF TDK MAN'S STATEMENT.
Yollroth asserts, under his own signature,
that on the 4tli of October, in the year 1803,
he left the city of Brcmenhauscn in the Bre
men bark Gauss, lor America. He was pro
vided with an emigrant's pass,and arrival at
Charleston, S. C., on the 29th of November,
and in Baltimore, Md., on the 4th of De
j cember, in the same year.
I After having becu engaged iu various
other occupations he entered the service of
A VIRGINIA .FISHERY COMPANY,
on the Potomac river, on the 11th of March,
1809, his employers agreeing to pay him $1
per day and free statiou for his services. The
company consisted of an American named
Waller, who appears to have been the pro
prietor of a tishery farm on the Potomac,
about twenty-five miles northeast ot the city
of Fredericksburg, a gentleman named Cun
ningham. of Baltimore, aud a third partner,
whose name the self-accused murderer could
not remember. !
He also gives a description of tbe time for
fishing in the river, and represents that the
em ploy & of the company were fourteen
German emigrants aud forty or titty negroes.
All of these men were employed as fi-her
men, and lived together iu block-houses, and
were worked under two overseers. j
Yollroth left the city of Baltimore on Sat
urday, 130i March, 1889, at 2 P. M., and ar
rived at the tishery on Sunday the 14th
instant at 4 P. M. In the immediate vicini
ty of the Wuller funn?say fifteeu hundred j
paces distant down the river?is a second
farm belonging to Admiral Lee, whicb was
occupied by his four sons.
On the 22d of April, about 2 o'clock P.
M., owing to a storm which prevailed at the
time, fishing operations were suspended tem
| porarily, |and Yollroth represents that he
left the* tishery for
A WALK IN TnE FOREST.
He bad gone about three miles on the road
which leuds to Fredericksburg when he met J
a man apparently about thirty years old,
who asked him for a light; he (Yollroth)
smoked a cigar. The man appeared from
his dialect to bean Irishman. The two men
entered into conversation, during which the
German learned from the man be had met
that he had beeu employed iu the construc
tion of u railroad near Fredericksburg, and
that be had
MADE MICH MONEY
while serving in that capacity. He also j
stated that he had given up his place on the
railroad and that he was en route to Washing
ton in search of employment; that he first in
tended to go to the tishery in order to make
use of a steamer which stopped there almost ,
da,Th'c two men then started back to the
fKherv, and on the way Yollroth observed
that the Irishman took from his pocket-book
a card, on which was tbe name of tbe rail
road contractor with whom he had worked.
He did this to show Yollroth that he had a
large sum of money about his person.
At this sight the thought came over the
German that he could
POSSESS HIMSELF OF THE MONEY.
They had then gone about a half a mile,
aud were two and a half miles from tbe
fishery, and it was 3 o'clock.
Yollroth seized the Irishman and deter
mined to take from him the pocket-book.
The Irishman defended himself handsomely,
and during the wrestle which ensued the
thought occurred to \oliroLb
" TUAT HE WAS LOST "
if the man remained alive, for he might go
to the fishery and accuse him of
THE THEFT.
lie thereupon drew his long knife, which he
carried about his person, thrust it into his
left breast, aud, us the confessor says, "m
consequence ot which the man soon
gave up his ghost ;
so to judge by the loss ot blood I seemed to
have cut his heart, respectively his lungs.
Yollroth uow took possession ot the poeKei
book which the man had carried in the lett
breast-pocket of bis coat, and
INTERRED THE CORPSE
several hundred feet aside from the road in
the woods aud brush-wood, by the aid ot
a hatchet and shovel, which he procured
from a farm half-mile distant from the spot
where the bloody deed was committed, and
two aud a half miles frem the fish
ery towards Fredericksburg-. He-returned
tbe implements to the farm, but did not see
anyone either when he first got the tools or
when be carried them back. At 6 o'clock in
the evening he returned to the fishery. Two
days afterwards he
RHT5NTED TUB DKED.
He determined to rid himself of the book,
so he threw it just as he bad foimd it into a
brook which flowed into the Potomac. The
book contained $200 in $5 and $10-notes and
$l-note (all greenbacks), and two letters. On
the outside, on the lid, was the name of
William Brown in gilt letters.
The confessor describes his victim as be
ing about live and a half feet high, with dark
hair and a mustache aDd goatee. He was
clad in gray pantaloons, blue short-coat, and
wore a black felt hat. Having relented of
his act bis conscience would uot allow him
to stay in the neighborhood of the pluce
where the crime was committed, and so he
determined to give up his place, and so in
formed his employers. They detained him,
however, until the 10th of -May, and on that
day, which happened to be Monday, he left
at 5 P. M. in a schooner, and arrived in
Washington the next morning at 9 o'clock.
From thence he went by rail to Baltimore.
OFF FOR GKHMANY.
The Bremen sail-vessel Laura and Ger
trude was in port at this time, and Yollroth
shipped as a sailor on the 20th of 3Iay, 1869,
and urrived at Bremenhausen on the 9th of
July following. Afterwards he went to
Branschweig, but after remaining there a
short time be returned to Bremenhausen,
but was arrested on account of " insufficient
legitimation " in the little village of Hager,
a short distauce from Bremenhausen. He
was then carried to the house of correction
Bevern near Hilymiudeu, where be lived
previous to his departure for America. Here
be was detained from the 22d September,
1869, to the 4th of March, 1870. On tbe
15th of August, 1872, he
JOINED THE ARMY.
He worked in Hanover, Branschweig, and
Bremen as a railroad-laborer, and latterly as
a file-sharpener. At the breaking out of the
Frunco-Prussian war he repeatedly offered
himself as a volunteer for military service.
In August, 1872, he was, against his will,
made to join the Ninety-secoud regiment at
Pfalzburg as a vagrant liable to duty.
The confessor enters so minutely into the
details of the crime and has given so much
information about the matter that it will
doubtless prove an easy task for the authori
ties to ascertain the truth of all he has said.
It is certainly an interesting ease, and the
developments, if there should be any, will
be eagerly sought after. At present the
matter stands as related above, but when the
Governor's communication has reached the
proper officers near where the murder is al
leged to have been committed there will
probably be further interesting details.
