The facts are these The man was found. stimihed bvy liquor, and in that state dragged to a ladder, tied to one of the rounds, and there kept exposed" to a broiling son, without a particle, of food for a length of time. On Sqnday, May 22d, he w&s ordered to be cut down, when he i died in a few minutes after. Such barbarity would hardly be expected in the most heatheuish countries, but among a people. boasting of superior refinement and civilisation it is without excuse. \Ve kpow that in the ariny very rigid discipline "is necessary to enforce order, there are times even.when severity must H* used, otherwise insubordination would take place and the men become denyjra'ized.
