Foster, the *• ear-hook" murderer wee •«routed in New York eu Friday lut. — Some 000 •• human horror-rockers " were allowed to be prêtent, and had, it ii to be supposed, their craving for euch aeenea fully (ratified. It wu reported very con fidentially on Hatnrday that Foetcr had taken poiaon, and that ho would not have lived an honr if be had not been banged. Both of the clergymen who attended him in bie very lust moments bave declared that the report ia altogether inconsistent with their observation of the man's condi tion during the last hour of bia life. I)r. Tyng embraced the occasion of the funeral to state his confidence that the report was false. Thus in spite of the permutent effort« of a largo number r,f clergymen, who might hnvo been heller employed, and many other mistaken sympathizers who sought to perauado Gov. Dix to commute his pun ishment lo imprisonment, a New York murderer has sutTercd the penally of hit «rime, and the right of ladies lo ride in tb« itreet cars, and of gentlemen to shield their lady friends from insult, has been vindicated; and tha rttprcUtUe murderer is denied the enjoyment of beating out the brains of a man, who reproves him for his insoleneo to ladies, with a ear-hook. If Got. Dix continue» in thia way law and justice will begin to exercise tome »way iu New York, and when she *ue oeede in establishing tho " relic of barbar ian) '' of whielt ao many of Ihe " parly of moral ideea" stand so much in dread, murderers and thieve* will find it col quite ■ s pleasant lo ply tliuir trade iu New York and will be obliged lo go lo some of the other Staus where the punishment for auch innocent little pastimes is much more lenient and more in keeping with the prac tices of the pious Ci edit Mobiliers.

OIHL NEAR aaiioaorii. From Sussex county comas the newt of the per petration of a must horrible vHmo, the commit tal or which it seems evtn the Inevitable inflic tion or death penalty cannot entirely prevent in this State. The circumstances, as we have learned them, are as follows : About eleven o'clock, Monday morning, as a young lady about 1ft years of ugt, the daughter of Mr. John Lank, living near llebobotli, about six milts from Georgetown, was returning froin the residence of her uncle, where she had lH*en errand, she was accosted on the road by n beastly wretch of a uegro. named Joseph IJurton. Tho girl made no reply, but attempted to pass on, when the fiend wiled her, to"* her clothes almost off, and throwing her to the ground, ruth lessly violated her person. After accomplishing bis hellish purpose, the villain fled. The girl then managed to drag herself to her father's residence, where she made known the facts of the horrible outrage. The news circu lated like w ild fire, and ulation of the ncighborhod were in arms, an stituting a vigorous search for the fiend. Threats of lynch law were freely eiprrsevd, and the gen I opinion was that summary Justice upon the nearest tree would be the only adéquat» punish ment for the horrible crime About six o'clock in the evening, Hurton was discovered in the woods, about twe miles from the «|»ot where tbs rrims was committed. The threats of lynch law were about to be promptly executed, but more moderate counsel« prevailed, and the culprit was handed to an «fiber, who conveyed him to the Georgetown jail, llurton is certainly a bardenrd villain. Instead of feel ing any remorse for bis crime, he made light of it and comported himself in the most careless manner. Ilf will be tried at the approaching term of the Sussex county court, in April next, when just and condign punishment will be meted out to him. The young lady was severely injured in the struggle with the fiend, while the »hock , tained hv her mental svstctn was verv great.
