Yesterday the interest of iron men in this
city, both workers and manufacturers, cen?
tered largely at the Hi verside mil), where nails
were being cut from steel plates prepared the
day before. Nails of nearly all sizes were cut,
and gave general satisfaction. The ingots,
or "piles," W'H he remembered, were beat
Oil in the furnaces, in the eamo manner
as iron, and taken to the rollsnnd from it to
tbcplatc cutter. Of the nine ingots heated two
were burned and rendered useless. Considerable
wire bad to be ejterciiiod, us they do not
require as much heating astlta iron, and if
they burn, (lawn or imperfections ur? c.usily
discernable. Standing by n nailer in tlia
factory yesterday a reporter watched a feeder
dispose of ii number of platca. Picking up a
handful of the nails the nailer said; "Now,
these are beauties. That nail in a. perfect one,
and it has many an advantage over
the iron. First, it is tough.
Why, seo here," and fastening the nail -in a
vise, lie took a pair of pinchers and bent it
double. "Now, it took a quarter more force
to bend that nail than it would to break an
iron naft. Jt's as easy to cut these nail*, as
far as 1 can see, as the iron ones, although it
wiJJ bo different when the steel is prejwred
by the process they have in Pittsburgh'.
That makes it somewhat harder. These nails
are not concave or notched, becuuae we have
not #ot tho knives to do that work yet. The
boys arc us well pleased with these , plates aa
with the iron, and I ospect before many
months everything will be steel nails."

Considerable excitement tvw caused in,
Martin's Kerry yettcrday morning about 10
o'clock by tliu announcement thut Newlon i
Aahton, ngeil 21 ycurs, tbeBon of u highly re-1
apected farmer living three miles buck of
that tow iif had been found In (ho woods near1
the fAiuily residency, dead, with a bullet ln|
hi* bluln.. Tbo first report was that ho lmd
btun murdered during a quarrel with another
man, not named, nboul fl girl, but
later reports disproved this, though tbo fact
that his dead body had been found lit the
woods, as roportod, was verified. Coroner
(ianett, of Belmont county, who lives at Dellalre,
was at onco notified, and about 2
o'clock lie, in company with Mayor Mitchell
and QUlcers Hanson anil linn, of Martin's
Kerry, started tor the seeno of tbo tragedy,
accompanied by an Lntklliuksoku reporter.
Tbo Ashton reaiuetico is situated on the
summit of a hill, about three miles from
Martin's Kerry, in a neighborhood noted for
its quiet and good order. The spot where tho
body of Newton was fount! isonlya few bun*
dred yarilafrom the house; and the body had
been brought in and laid out by the
time the eoroner arrived. The wound which
canned Ids death was situated about an inch
biieSc of arid slightly higher than his right
eye. The bull passed through his brain and
lodged Just .under tho ecalp, on tbo leftside,
about two inches above the eye,and at uboul
the same height as tho entrance.
Tim uuioner ut once uegiiN wo taking or Us*
tlmony, the following boin? the main points;
On the previous evening Newton hud, in compuny
with lnu betrothed wife, Miss Kate
i'o well, attended a party given at the residence
of a family named Woods in the neigh*
borhood. Nothing happened during tlie
evening to mar the harmony of the occasion,
and when the party broktutu Mr. Ashton and
Mi?w Powell ilunurled wilu tlie rest ot the
guests. From the statement of Miss I'owell,
given before the Coroner, with evidences of
much distress, it appears that she informed
Ashton after their return from the party that
their wedding, which bud been lixed for
Thanksgiving day, would have to bo postponed,
for ttie reason that she could not get
ready in time; and she further stated tout he
left her in his usual yood spirits, saying ''all
right" to the proposed postponement. Sho
further stated that he hud on'ft former occasion
threatened to shoot himself if sho did
not agree to marry hint, and that since that
threat they had formed their engagement,
Ik'foru he left her yesterday morning he
showed liis revolver, but mid nothing unout
using it upon himself. She had, at the time
of informing him of the postponement of the
wedding, also returned his engagement ring,
with the remark that lie might wear it awhile,
but did not say to him or consider thai their
engagement was at an end. It was about ft
o'clock when lie left for bin home, and he was
Ihon, to all appearance?, in his usual good
Isaac Aahtou, Uio father of the deceased,
hud goueabout his work ns usual in the morning,
not noting the ahsencoqf hia son, until
lie saw his horse siundingaaddled in a hollow
near the house, when iae started partly to
search for him and partly to attend to nt? usual
ilutioa. In a nince of w*niis nt?nr Mm
the father found the bod/ of iiis sou lying oh
the ground, with the wound in his head exposed
to full view, the you eg mun having
fallen at 'full lenulh on his left aide. The
body was cold in death, ilia revolver was
found lyinj* partly within his overcoat between
the jnsule coat atul overcoat, two ut
the chambers being empty.
Jlr. Asbton summoned assistance, and the
body was taken into the. house and notice at
once tent to the authorities.
The locality where tjie body was found
wan thoroughly searched by several of the
ne'ghbors, but no evidences were discovered
of a idruggie or the presence of other persons.
Homo blood was found 011 the leaves near
where the body Uy. It was the opinion of
l)rs. \\reirich,.Dlackford, Williams and HerYey,
who carefully examined the body, that
the wound was auiliciest to cause iustant
j The revolver was of 32-calibre, and belong|
cd to a nephew of the deceased, Charles Asli|
ton. Several witnesses were exumined besides
those named above, but no additional light
I was thrown upon the mutter, it appeared
from the evidence that Newton had had no
j dijlJcnlty or quarrel with anybody, and that
j he was held in high esteem by all bis friends.
The Coroner, after hearing all the testimony,
I concluded that the etiso was clearly one of
suicide, arid so rendered his verdict. Mr.
Ash ton's father, however, refuses to entertain
I the belief that his son died by his own hand.
}{Us I'owoU, the betrothed wife of the dead
man, is a bright littla brunette of seventeen
years, of prepossessing appearance, and was
completely overcome by (motion when
shown the engagement ring taken from her
lover's hand tor identification. Jfer testimony
was frequently interrupted by out
uur.iia ui grid.
The tragedy has cast a gloom over the good
people of the neighborltood, and Ur. Asfiton
and family huvothe warm sympathy of many
friends in their presentilisiretB.

When an immense slab cf slate fell upon

that ft required three men with crowburs lo
