Particulars the Execution of Joseph
W. Thornton in St. Louis—Extraordinary
Composure of the Criminal.
The telegraph has ehwailv In fnrmAil na nf
the exeoution, on Fridaylgst, of Joseph W.
Thornton for the murder of Joseph Charless,
in St. Louis, who, it will be remembered, was
shot on the 8d of June last by Thornton while
walking on 'Market-street, between Third and
Fourth. The deed was not committed at
night, nor in an unfrequented part of the
city, but at the hour of nine o'clock in the
morning, in one of the most orowded thor
oughfares. ills demeanor during confinement was not
that of one who regretted the commission of
the act for which he must forfeit his life. He
frequently asserted that he should do the same
thing again under the same circumstances and
with the same opportunity. . 1
During a great portion of Thursday, the day
preoeding the exeoution, the arrival of the Gov
ernor was very anxiously looked for by the
friends of the condemned man, thongh he him
self expressed no eonoern in the matter, and
wnen informed at a late hour that nothing had
as yet been done for him, he replied: "I am
prepared for the worn t I will die like a man."
Saturday's Jdinouri .Democrat observes:
Thornton has been considered by some per
sons, since the murder, a man naturally vioious.
But we are quite confident that suoh has never
been his disposition. Judging from his phre
nologio&l appearanoe, we should say he was a
very sensitive man one who could not, like
some, "sleep off" the idea of resenting a real
or supposed injury to bis person, and more
particularly to his character. He was, also,
when not assailed by troubles, of an intel
lectual turn of mind, and was more inclined to
reading and study than to soaloty and what is
commonly oalled amusement.
The particulars of the exeoution are thus
given in that journal: r
Preparations for the execution were com-
menoed at twelve o'clock, by Deputy Marshal
Eves, who adjusted the rope around the beams,
and put the trap-door of the scaffold in its
proper position. Every officer conneoted with
tne jail was besieged with persons asking ques
tions as to what time it would take nlaoa. ata..
but no very definite answer could be given.
The friends of the condemned seentcd anx
ious, if possible, to exhaust all the time al
lowed by the sentence, in hopes that the Gov
ernor would ohango his wind, as it was un
derstood that a dispatch had been sent to him
m tne morning, asking for a respite. The
moments were almost counted bv the carsona
who had assembled inside the iail vnrd to
gratify their curiosity, until three o'clock,
wnen tne prisoner, supported on eaonside by
one of the deputy marshals, descended the
steps from the jail. Immediately behind
mm touowea tne reverened gentlemen who
had ministered so faithfully to his spiritual
wants during his confinement, ; v
On emerging from the jail, Thornton recog
nised two or three old aoqualntanoes in the
crowd, who stood eagerly watohing bis ap
proach. On seeing them a pleasant smile
appealed upon his countenance, and "giving a
gentle bow of his head, he passed on to the
steps of the scaffold, whioh he ascended more
rapidly and vigorously than did any person
Hoeomjianying mm. ug reaching tne top Of
the scaffold he seated himself between the two
clergymen, and looked around him, as if de
sirous of seeing some one he knew. The
Bllgh test tremor was not visible is his move
ments, and his oonduot utterly astonished every
person who witnessed it.
. He was asked by the Marshal if he had any
thing to say, and replied in the negative by
shaking his head. He then declared himself
ready, and stood upon a box placed upon the
trap-door. The slightest quivering of a nerve
oould no.tbedeteotedin him, even now when he
saw tne death warrant whioh Mr. Cunning
ham held in his hand, and was about to read
to him.. This being done, Deputy Marshal
Eres proceeded to cover his faoe with a long
whitejoap, while Mr. Cunningham pinioned his
arms behind his back with a small cord. The
rope being adjusted, all the persons on the
scaffold who had accompanied the prisoner
stood dsck, n nue tne olergyman read prayers,
after which all was declared ready, and at
fourteen minutes past three o'clock, the mur
derer of Joseph Charless hung suspended be
tween heaven and earth. His neok was broken
by the fall, although a great many persons
thought life lurked and lingered in his body
tor more man seven minutes after.
After hanging sixteen minutes he was nro
nounced dead, and cut down. Then it was
ascertained, oontrary to expectations, that the
neok had been broken by the fall. After the
body had been taken down, the cap was taken
from the faoe that a few moments before was
animated and expressive. Strange to say, not
the least distortion had taken place, the
countenance being perfeotly natural, the mouth
and eyes partially open the latter having a
very glassy appearanoe.

Particulars the Arrest of Palmer,
the Alleged Harper's Ferry Conspirator.
Dr. W. R. Palmer, arrested in Memphis, as
we has e stated, on charge of oomplioity with
Captain Brown in the Harper's Ferry affair,
went to .that city last July, and was afterward
married to a lady, of Shelby County, from,
whom he fubiequently separated. On Thurs
day Palmer was examined and held in $2,500
ball, in defs nit of which he was committed to
prison. Thi' oiroumatanoes that led to his
arrest are that given In the Evening Argut oCA
Thursday: ; .
. A week or two an a gentleman, while seated
in a railroad ear between Baltimore and Phila
delphia, discovered, in the seat behind him a
man muffled to the chin, and apparently de
siring as much as possible to shield himself
from observation.
As the train neiired a station, the lattor
rose to his feet and left the car as he did so,
accidentally dropping two letters and a small
memorandum on the floor. The gontleman
picked them up, and finding that one of the
letters was sealed and addressed to John
Brown, his suspicions were arouaed. The
other bore the superscription of a man named
Horner, directed to some point in Virginia,
and had been , opened. Satisfied that this
letter could throw some light on the seeming
mystery, he perused its contents. And well
th ey repaid hint for his trouble.
1 he letter stated that an agent of the under
ground railroad, named Thatcher, had been in
Memphis sometime during the. month of
August, where he had become acquainted
with one W. R. Palmer, residing here, and
that the two had an Interview in the navy
yard. During the interview (the letter goes
on to say) Thatcher was informed by Palmer
that whenever Brown was ready to strike the
blow for the freedom of the slaves, he oould
promise hitu any amount of money from Mem
phis merolntsl .The gontlemen then im
mediately forwarded the letter to Governor
Wise, at Rtol'imond, whose subsequent action
in the matter led to the arrest as narrated yesterday.
Sad Fall or a Ccltivatbd Womas frou
Intimperauob. A handsome and respeotabiy
dreiaed woman was brought into Justioe Corn
well's Court, in New York, on-Thursday,,ln a
state of beastly Intoxication. ; While in oharse
of the officers la the Court etao took a fit of
delirium tremens, and the soene that ensued
was heartrending beyond description. Her
shrieks were so terrible and agonizing, that
even the officers of the Court, used to such
scenes, were visibly moved. One of the offi
cers of the Court stated that this woman was
the wife of an - eminent physioian, and but a
short time sinoe was highly respected as an
exemplary wife and mother, and had every
thing around her to make her life happy; but
in an evil nouysno yiemoa te tne vice ot in
temperance, and since then has gone down .
step by step, in her sad career. Her huBband
tried every means in nis power to reclaim ner,
but without avail; and, as a final resort, was
obliged to have her arrested and sent to the
Ah Entibb Family Poisoned bt a Nsoro
Slavs. An evening or two since, the family
of Dr. Phillip Thorubury, residing near Louis
villa, Kentucky, partook of muen and milk,
exoept the Dootor. In a few moments five
persons were taken violently ill, and had it
not neen for the immediate application of
emetios, death would unquestionably have en
sued. ' As they had eaten nothing else but the
mush, the oause of their severe illness was of
oourse instantly attributed thereto. The re
mains of the food were brought to Louisville,
and subjected to anylitio tests, snd it was dis
covered that there was a sufficiency tl arsenis
to have destroyed a hundred persons. That
the negro cook was not rendered elok, was
thought very strange. She excused herself
by saying that she did not eat the mush, and
made suon statements as to implioate the negro
Slavibt PasriBABLa to Fbkedom. A
sprightly and tidy colored woman, named
Margaret, slave ot the late Mrs, Sally Price,
of Rlohmond, Va., was emancipated by her
mil tress about nine years ago. She left that
oity soon after, and since that time has visited
several of the Northern States, in the capacity
of servant, being, of course, mistress of her
own time, and hiring herself to whomsoever
she ohose. A short time ago she returned to
Richmond, and a fow days ego applied for the
privilege of ohoosing a master, and resuming
the oondition ot a slave.
Nsw Pbojbct IK Pabib. The Courrier du
Havre states that a projeot is under considera

leagues frrm Paris, all the great workshops of
the railways. The execution of the project
would necessitate the removal of a great num

tend to reduce rents in the districts occupied
by workingmen i it would, besides, be profita
ble to the companies, aa they could sell the
ground which they now ocoupy for a much
larger sum than the purchase of new sites, and
tne construction oi new womsnops in tne coun

A Man Twici Eillid. The eastward bound
train on the D. and M. Railway, when about
five miles this side of Linden, Michigan,
day or two ago, ran over a yonng man lying
on the traok. splitting his head directly in two,
from tne crown to the necx, the front part of
the bead being found some ten leet from the

discovered a bullet-hole through the shoulder,

"I can't command much," was the reply.

in China twice during the present century, at
an Interval of forty years, gives the following
results: The first, taken in 1812, by order of
the Emperor Kia-Eing, gave the number of
inhabitants at 860,279,597; and the second in
1S52, under the reign and by the order of the
present Emperor Hien-Foung, 538,090,300. If
these accounts be eorreot, and there is nothing
to lead to the supposition that they are not,

Very Important from Brownsville.
New OaiuANS, Novembes 12. The Delta
of this city publishes a letter, dated Corpus
Christi, ovoinber 7, which says that it is
almost certain that the town of Brownsville
has fallen into the hands of Cortinaa. The
Mexican flag was flying at a point four miles
above the town. All communication had
been cut off. The entire population, on both
sides of the Rio Grando, was in arms, with
the intention of exterminating the Ameri
cans, end reconquering the country to the
Colorado Riyer. The news is confirmed by
the affidavit of citizens of Cameron County,
who were obliged to fly for their lives. An

Govbrnob Wiss A3 a Rahd Wbitir. A
letter-writer from Richmond gives the follow
ing information in regard to Governor Wise's
rapidity of penmanship :
Governor Wise, in the oharaoter of a aoribe,
surpasses, perhaps, any man living. In
point of rapidity he can only be paralleled in
short-hand, while his writing is almost as
legible as print. I had occasion some time
ago to copy some writing of his, and I did ao
page after page as he produced them. I
started when he was about two pages ahead,
and though he had to compote while I had
merely to oopy, at the close of the tenth page
he was still two in advance. At this stage he
was oalled off to dinner, and I availed myself
of this opportunity to procure a peculiar style
of pen, whioh I thought would faeilitato the
operation. Ws both set to work sgain simul
taneously: and though he stopped occasionally
to mend his pen, (he writes with a quill pen,)
and now and men walked rapidly around the
room, while I meanwhile wrote with all the
rapidity of which I was capable, he wound up
at the end of the twenty-ninth page with the
two pages in sdvanoe which he had at the
start. I understand he thinks nothing of
answering twenty-live or thirty letters a day,
or rather within the three or four hours he
apends in his oQioe, besides attending to other
duties and receiving visitors, who ooeupy much
of his time. What a reporter he would make

Taa Amsricah Bosses ih Eholaho. Mr.
Ten Broeck has lately been unlucky on the
English turf. Threo of his horses took part
in as many races on the Cambridgeshire day
of the Newmarket meeting. "Pomona" came
in sixth at the first race: "Prioress" was
fourth in the race for the Cambridgeshire
stakes, and "Starke' was fourth in another
race, in which live horses ran.
