CARD TO THE LADIES.
DOCTOR LEWIS, the Hungarian Female Physician and
Surgeon, begs leave to acquaint the Ladies of New York
and environs, that he devotes his practice exclusively to
the treatment of Female Diseases, such as
Pain in the Back ant or Whites;
Profuse or Painf ul Menstruation; Cessation of
Turn of Life; Chlorosis, or Green
Sickness, Hysterics, &c., &c.
ABSENCE OF MENSES, OR OBSTRUCTIONS,
TREATED WITH PROFESSIONAL SKILL (SURGICAL OR MEDICAL.)
STERILITY OR BARRENNESS, cured in all cases
Where there is no physica' defect.
A PREVENTION FOR CONCEPTION ALWAYS ON
HAND.
Ladies that would favor Dr. Lewis with a call, will
meet with honorable and scientific treatment.
OFFICE, No. 7 BEACH STREET, between Varick and
West Broadway.
Consultation in all the principal languages, from 9 A.
M. to 9P. M.; Sundays from 9tollA. M. Rooms arranged
so the patient sees none but the Doctor. Consultation and
advice gratis. Charges moderate.
In consideration oi the poor, I have set apart Friday af
ternoon of every week, for gratuitous treatment.
Consultation at the patient’s own residence promptly
attended to.
Communications by mail punctually replied to, and
medicine sent to all parts of the United States and Cana
da as ordered.
The great want of a qualified physician to treat all
the numerous diseases that the female system is heir to,
is too sensibly felt by the American female. (This love
ly'country of Liberty gives too much liberty to pretending
Suacks and unscrupulous humbugs.) It is with pleasure
lat I offer my services to the sex, whose health should
be considered the greatest blessing of man’s existence.
A wise physician, skilled our wounds to heal,
Is more than armies to the public weal.
Manhood preserved without the
injury resulting from internal medicines.
SELF CURE.—Spermatorrhoea, Impotency, Involuntary
Nocturnal or Diurnal Emissions, or more properly known
as Seminal Weakness, Nervous Debility. Low Spirits, Las
situde, Weakness of the Back and Limbs, Dimness of
Vision, etc., etc., incapacitating its victim for business or
matrimony, rendering him misanthropical and suicidal in
his propensities, are instantly and permanently cured in
from three to fifteen days by the use of the
PERINEUM COMPRESS and URETHRAL SUPPORTER,
patented and protected by
PROFESSGB A.UZAS, of Paris.
It probably might be necessary to state to the public that
these appliances received the sanction of the whole medi
cal press in Paris, as well as the prominent medical jour
nals of this country. When notices «<> of
efficacy as have appeared in such journals as the Gazette
de Hospitaul, Paris, the Society de Medicine de Bordeaux
the Franklin Medical and Philosophical Journal, the Jour
nal of Health, etc., the public and sufferer will feel con
vinced of its curative powers, and no longer be deluded
by the nostrums which fill the public prints of the present
dav.
These instruments must be worn day and night accord
ng to ths severity of the complaint, which can be done
without pain, interference to business pursuits, or disoov
ery by the most intimate friend or bed-fellow.
The PERINEUM COMPRESS and URETHRAL SUP
PORTER is forwarded in a case, free from all observation,
to all parts, however remote, with perfect safety, on re
ceipt of $5, and addressing Professor AUZAS, Agency No.

instrument. Country bills taken at par.

TER has, for thirty years, confined his attention to
diseases of a certain class, in which he has treated no less
than fifty thousand cases, without an instance cf failure.
The remedies are mild, and there is no interruption to bu
siness or change of diet. Dr. Hunter is in constant attend
ance from 7in the morning until 10 at night, at his old
office, No. 3 Division street. Charges moderate, and a
cure guaranteed. Separate rooms, so that the patient sees
no one but the Doctor himself. Inviolate secrecy in every
instance. His great remedy, Dr. HUNTER’S RED DROP,
cures certain diseases, when regular treatment and all
other remedies fail ; cures without dieting or restrictioa
in the habits of the patient; cures without the disgusting
and sickening effects of all other remedies ; cures in new
cases in less than six hours ; cures without the dreadful
consequent effects of mercury, but possesses the peculiar
valuable property of annihilating the rank and poisonous
taint that the bk*od is sure to absorb, unless his remedy is
used. This is what he claims for it, and what no other
will accomplish. Its value in this respect has become so
well known, that scientific men in every department of
medical knowledge begin to appreciate it, for hardly a
week passes that he is not consulted by druggists, chem
ists, and physicians in regard to some pitiful patient who
has exhausted the whole field of the faculty, and still the
disease will appear. What human being, with any pre
tention to Christianity will say that this medicine should
not be made known far and wide ? Its popularity is so
great, that tltere is not a quack doctor in tiie city that has
not attacked it; and when they find their lies are not so
easily swallowed, they then pretend that they can make
it. It is $1 a vial, and cannot be obtained genuine any
where but at the efld office, No. 3 Division street. Book of
SUO pages for nothing.
DR. LEWIS’S
CELEBRATED REMEDIES
are well known throughout Europe to be the most certain
and effectual ever discovered for every stage and symp
tom of SECRET DISEASE, including
SECONDARY SYMPTOMS,
STRICTURES, SEMINAL WEAKNESS,
And all Diseases of the Urinary Passages, without loss of
time, confinement, or hindrance from business. They
have effected most surprising cures, not only in recent
and most severe cases, but when salivation and all other
means have failed ; and when an early application is
made to Dr. Lewis for the cure of a certain disorder, fre
fluently contracted in a moment of inebriety, the eradica
tion is generally completed in a few days ; and in more
advanced and Inveterate stages of Secret Infection, cha
racterized by a variety of painful and distressing symp
toms, a perseverance in their use (withoutrestraint in diet
©r-exercise) will ensure to the patient a permanent and
radical cure.
Consultation and advice gratis. Charges moderate.
Rooms arranged so the patient sees none but the Doctor.

He is the great Inventor and only Practitioner of the new

given in vain, but oiten to the utter destruction of the Sut
terer’s health. Its almost marvelous powers must be felt
to be believed. Hundreds of apparently hopeless cases
which have been given up by the faculty have been
speedily cured, and many thousands have derived most
marvelous relief, when every other remedy has sig
nally failed. The Cordial Balm of Life is the result of long
practical investigation of the remedies best adapted for
those and other diseases, arising from vicious habits or ex
cess; and, in addition to the great test of experience, it
has received the sanction of the highest medical authori
ties in Europe, as entirely superseding those questionable
remedies which have too long been the sole reliance of the
medical men of this country.

Punishment of Idle Husbands in
New Zealand The head chief often interferes
in minor matters of a domestic nature. For in
stance, if a lazy fellow has a wife or two and a
few children, and through his love for fishing,
dancing and loitering idly about, neglects to
bring in the necessary supplies for his family, a
complaint is made, the chief visits the house in
person, and if he sees just ground for punish
ment, he orders out the population of the vil
lage. Men, women and children arm themselves
with a stiff birch made of small canes ; then
form a long double line, about six feet apart,
and wait with anxious glee the approach of the
delinquent. At last he is placed at one end of
the line, amidst a shower of yells, screams,
jibes, &c. The word is given by the chief, and
away he darts at his utmost speed through the
ranks, every one endeavoring to hit him as he
passes. According to his deserts, he may get
oft' with running the line once, or he may have
to do so twice or thrice; but he is skilled in cun
ning and fleetness that can run the line even once
without having his skin tickled for him by the
hearty application of the birch, wielded by some
strong women! As the punishment is not of a
fatal kind, the whole affair creates unrestricted
merriment. If the victim is a smart fellow he
may escape with few blows ; but if he is sulky,
heavy, and dogged, he pays for it. Such a man
comes off covered with welts on his bare skin
from his head to his heels. For one month af
terwards ms family are provraerrroi-Toy an put>-
lic at large, under the fatherly superintendence
of the chief. At the expiration of that time, if
he has all his domestic matters in perfect order,
as a good father and provident husband ought to
have, he again resumes his place in society, and
shortly afterwards, perhaps, helps, with an ex
perienced hand, to flagellate some one else.
A Wise Precaution.—Railroad trav
elers are so proverbially incautious that, unless
the carrying companies employ expedients ren
dering it impossible for travelers to expose them
selves to danger, accidents are continually oc
curring. The practice of thrusting the elbows
out of a car window has caused so many acci
dents that railroad companies are generally
adopting the safeguard of putting a perforated
iron plate, eight inches high, across the bottom
of the window, outside the sash. This renders
it impossible to thrust the elbow beyond the ear
body, and saves the arm from being crushed
against the timber of bridges. Against the dan
ger of accident from passing from one ear to an
other while in motion, there is no remedy yet
discovered except locking the car door, as is done
in Europe. This is so great a restraint upon the
freedom of motion of a live Yankee that it is not
generally adopted, though it would tend to great
er security from accident if it were. Against
jumping from railroad cars when in motion,
there is no remedy which can he devised, for no
mechanical restriction can compensate for the
absence of brains in the traveler.
Queer Mispronunciation.—lt is a
striking fact that names of places are oftenest
mispronounced by the inhabitents or people of
the neighborhood. Some of these distortions are
amusing enough from their wide departure from
the true pronunciation. In La Salle, half the
people call their city rt La (anct a “dead
sell” it is to the reluctant wayfarer, compelled to
wait half a day for the train). Bellfountaine is
pronounced “ Bell Fountain,” and everybody in
or about Indianapolis, calls it Indianopolis,
without scruple or apparent remorse. Evans
ville goes often by the name of “ Lcansville,” and
Terre Haute (a pretty French name for a fine
Yankee town in Indiana—and signifying “ High
land”), what do you think they call that ? Why,
“ Terry Hui,” to be sure—a sound which seems
portentiously indicative of mud cabins, instead
of the civilized and even elegant architecture
which adorns the city. But the vice is not pecu
liar to the West. The older natives of Hartford.
Conn., speak of it as “Harford” to this day;
many citizens of Brunswick, Maine, continue to
shock the ears of the Bowdoin boys by allusions
to “ Brumswick”; while half the inhabitants of
Portsmouth, N. H., call it—what do you suppose?
You couldn’t guess in a month of Sundays. You
give it up ?—of course you do ; what can they
call it but Portsmouth? Why, ‘ PoreAmouth,”
by all that is ridiculous [—Historical Magazine.

When asked if he had anything to say, he replied, “‘r
have nothing to say: if any one wishes to ask any ques
tions! will answer them.’- As preparations for the exe
cution were progressing, he said, “You arc hanging me
unjustly; it is just murder. Have me decently buried;
what was denied me in life I want in death.” When
asked by the priest if he had any confession to make, he
said, “All I am sorry for is I have been so insulted in life
I could not act the part of a gentleman.” The drop fell
at twenty minutes past three o’clock, and he died with
out a struggle. Upon examination, there was found upon
his arm, in India ink, the name of Michael Conroy. He
was attended by two clergymen; but they did not succeed
in making any impression upon him. He treated .their
attention with ridicule and jest. During his imprison
ment he has not uttered a word of regret tor the crime he
has committed, and when upon the scaffold his counte
nance bore the impress of a villian of the deepest dye.
When the Sheriff was reading the warrant, and came to
alias Michael Britton, he said, ‘ <l—n the aliases. ” He met
his fate with the most stoical indifference—requesting the
Sheriff to bury him as “ a gentleman, for he had always
lived like one.”
Porter Cunningham, an old man nearly sixty years of
age, was tried at Sacramento, and found guilty on a
charge of rape.
An affray occurred in Shasta county, between two men
named Green and William McFarron, in which the latter
was shot and mortally wounded. It appears the difficul
ty arose about the amount of gold taken from a quantity
of quartz by Green.
The Contra Costa Gazette gives the following account of
a mysterious murder committed near San Pablo: A stran
ger, after eating supper at the hotel, took his blankets and
proceeded a short distance up the road, where he turned
off into a wheat field, spread his blankets! and laid down.
The next morning he was found quite dead, with a wound
on the temple apparently caused by a blow from a heavy
instrument. The body was yet warm when discovered.
There was no money on his person, and the only clue to
his identity was a letter addressed to Harvey, the
Christian name having escaped the recollection of our in
formant. Deceased was a powerfully built man, and was
probably attached while asleep.
An inquest was held on the body of Charles Arona, a
native of the Sandwich Islands, aged 28 years, who was
killed at Gentry’s gulch on the Merced river, on the 27th of
July, by Frank Harrison. Deceased was approaching
Harrison with a loaded pistol presented, and threatening
the life of Harrison, who, after warning him several times
to stop,finally shot him with a double-barreled shst gun,
hilling him instantly. One of the witnesses testified that
Arona was a very bad man when angry, and had shot two
men previous to this occurrence. The jury rendered a
verdict of justifiable homicide.
A difficulty occurred at lone City, in which a man
named Thomas Bennet was shot and instantly killed by
George Walker. Bennet followed Walker into the Post
Office, with a pistol in his nand. Walker, observing him,
picked up a double barreled shot gun and fired both bar
rels, killing him instantly. They had a difficulty about a
year ago, when Bennet shot Walker, badly wounding him,
and it is said he had attempted to kill Walker at the Gold
en Eagle Hotel, in Sacramento, a short time since. The
cause of the difficulty is supposed to be jealousy.

but little loss. Capt. M. is on the trail of the murderers.
A Hoary Scoundrel.—One George
Tanner, aged 65, a commission merchant, living in Lou
don, was lately arraigned, charged with committing a
criminal assault upon his step-daughter, Mary Jane Win
ter, aged 12 years. The complainant, a genteel-looking
young girl, said she was 12 years of age last November.
Her step-father first commenced taking liberties with her
when she was 11 years old. The next night her sister,
who was a young woman, saw him in the witness’s room,
and told her mother. Iler mother afterward cautioned
her, and said she ought not to have her father in her bed
room. She did not tell her mother what her lather had
done, as he had said that if she did he would murder both
of them. At that time she was home for her holidays
from boarding-scool. She then detailed what took place
on other occasions. She made a confidant of a young girl
and she advised her to acquaint her mother. The Secre
tary of the Associate Institute for the Protection of Women,
attended to prosecute, and applied for a remaud. The
Magistrate said that, supposing the girl’s account of the
case to betrue, what had happened had been done with her
consent The proper course was for him to discharge the
prisoner, but that would not prevent the prosecutor from
making other inquiries, and charging him again, if lie
thought there was a case. However great the immoral
ity, it was a question for him to consider whether any le
g»l offence had been committed. The case had broken
down on s ccount of the age of the girl. The prisoner was
then discharged, but, as he expressed a desire to make a
dejence, he was allowed to address the magistrate before
leaving the dock. He said his step daughter had con
stantly followed him about, and had asked him to do
what he had done. When she returned home from school
she related what the young ladies did. The prisoner
went into a disgusting account of the girl’s revelations,
and used obscene and filthy terms, which he declared the
complainant had expressed to him. Mr. Dayton—“ I think
we have heard quite enough.” The Prisoner—“ It is a
fact.” Mr. Dayton—“lt may be. I don’t choose t© ex
press an opinion; but if what you say is true, and you
took advantage of the immoral habits she acquired at
school, then you must be the most confounded rascal that
ever existed.” The Prisoner—“ I don’t excuse myself. I
don’t say I have not done wrong. I have done wrong,
and I feel it. lam an old man, but what I have stated is
true.” The prisoner was then discharged, and on leaving
me court one of the officers had to interfere to prevent
the mother from attacking him.
Matricide.—The Court of Assizes of
the Seine (France), lately tried a boy named Chas. Aubry,
16 years of age, on a charge of murdering his own mo
ther by discharging a gun at her as she lav ill in bed, at
Maisons-Alfort, on the 17th of May last. His father, Chas.
Aubry, aged 41, was charged with being an accessory be
fore the fact. The Aubry family consisted of the hus
band. wife, and four children, of whom the prisoner
Charles wasthejeldest. The father, an iron-founder,is clev
er at his trade, and with his eldest son, who worked with
him, was able to earn above lOf. a day. but he was add!-
ted to drinking,and had initiated his eldest sons in his own
bad habits. The wife, whose maiden name was Marlot,was
a woman of an education superior to her husband’s and
thoi gh of humble birth, a member of her family had be
come one of the highest ecclesiastical dignitaries in the
Second Empire. For some time prior to the murder, the
poor woman bad been afflicted with a complication of
disorders, which in the beginning of May compelled her
to remain in bed the greater part of the day, but her hus
band and sen insisted that her illness was caused solely
by drinking to excess, and both of them were accustom
ed to ill-treat her. On the 16th May, when the two pris
oners returned from their work, they found her in bed,
very ill in reality, but they declared she was drunk. As
the dinner, which she had obtained from an eating
house, did not please them, after grossly abusing her they
went to Paris together, and remained there till the eve
ning of the next day. When they returned, both of them
were intoxicated, and finding the poor woman still in bed,
they again abused her, and the husband loaded his gun,
declaring he would shoot her. The younger prisoner,
how ever, snatched the gun from his father’s hand and
discharged it into his mother’s breast, killing her on the
spot The- young murderer then ran out into the street
and told several persons what he had done Both father
and son were immediately arrested, and when interrogat
ed, they stated the circumstances of the crime as above
related. The father afterward told a different story, say
ing that he loaded the gun with the intention ofshooting
himself, and that his son had committed the crime while
he was absent from the room. It was proved, however,
that he was present when the shot was fired, and that, if
he did not encourage his son to commit murder, he did
nothing to prevent him. Several witnesses deposed that,
whatever her habits might have been previously, the
murdered woman's inability to attend to her household
affairs, since the family had resided at Alfort, was solely
owing to illness. After hearing counsel for the defence,
the jury brought in a verdict of Guilty against both prison
ers, but with the addition of extenuating circumstances,
and the Court accordingly 7 condemned them to hard
labor for life.
Attempted Rape.—About 9 o’clock
inntiihur. Miss Lucinda A. Smith, a refined
and accomplished daughter wr Trimroirouiitn, -a.
able citizen of Piscataway Town, started on foot irom
the residence of her father on the New Brunswick road
to go to her uncle's, Mr. Kirkpatrick, to spend the day
with some young people A short distance after leaving
her home she passed by a place where some mon were
threshing grain, and as she drew near she saw a man
leave the party and pass into a piece of woods which
skirts the road nearly the entire distance along vzhich she
was then compelled to travel. In the midst of the woods
he came out a short distance ahead of her and sat on the
fence until she came up, when he jumped off the fence,
seized her around the waist, and tried to force her into
the woods, telling her at the time if she cried out he
would shoot her with a revolver which lie had with him.
After a severe struggle with him for some ten minutes, in
which she made loud outcries, she finally forced him to
release his hold without his succeeding in accomplishing
his foul purpose. She then hurrld off to her uncle’s, and
informed him of what had occurred. From the descrip
tion she was able to give of the appearance of the man,
Mr. K. suspected one Joel Giles, and immediately came to
this city and laid the facts before Justice Nevius, who dis
patched constable John O. Strong after the scoundrel.
After a search of about two hours constable Strong found
Giles concealed in a small house about a mile from this
citv on the road to Piscataway town. He arrested him,
brought him betorc Justice Nevius, where the young ladv
fully identified Giles as the person who attempted the
outrage Giles was committed to jail to await the action
of the Grand Jury at the September term.— Neto Bruns

Arrest— Escape—Recapture.—Rob-
ert Louden (who, the public will remember, escaped from
the boat on which he was beiug transferred to Alton on
the 20th of August last, having been sentenced by a mili
tarv commission, on a charge of being a rebel mail car
rier) was arrested this morning. The officers were pro
ceeding with him to the prison, when, at the corner of
Twelfth and Pine, he asked the privilege of going into a
saloon hnd getting a dritik, which was granted, and they
all entered and drank. As soon as Louden swallowed his
liquor he suddenly darted out of the door and ran, the
others, of course, following. He rau up Pine to Thirteenth,
and then turned up Thirteenth to Olive, where he dodged
down into a cellar and hid himself in a coal hole, where
his pursuers, after a brief search, found him. He was
then escorted down to the Myrtle street prison, and given
in charge of the keener of that institution. Louden was
foi merly Street Inspector of the Seventh Ward, is a painter
bv trade, and has a wife and child in this city. Since his
escape last August, he is said to have made several visits
to this citv, carrying rebel mail to and from Dixie. He
was known to be in town about two weeks ago, but suc
cessfully eludca tua vigilance of the United States police.
On Louden’s person were round a bowie-knife, $27 in
greenbacks, and a number of letters, which were taken.in
charge by the Provost Marshal. After his incarceration in
Myrtle street prison he was quite noisy and abusive to the
Union soldiers. Said that when he got out he would natch
his pants with the scalps of Federal soldiers, &c. It was
not long till he got a fight on his hands, and, as we are
credibly informed, was substantially licked by a soldier
named John R. Hooper, one of the men. by the way, who
was arrested charged with the beating of officer New
berry who died a few days ago. Louden was visited by
the keeper of the prison with a ball and chain, which
jewelry he is now wearing.— St. Louis Repub , Sept. 4.
A Double-dyed Villain. —Ex-Provost-
Marshal Strachan, late of Palmyra, Mo., was arrested in
Quincy, Hl., on the 9th instant, by order of the Provost-
Marshal General of St. Louis. Strachan is charged with
embezzling some $20,000 of the funds of the Government
while actins as Provost-Marshal at Palmyra. The Quin
cy Herald charges that Strachan induced General McNeill
to shoot the ten guerrillas, in retaliation for the murder of
an old man, about a year ago. It says: “In this transac
tion, Strachan got himself into a serious scrape, for which
he was a few days since indicted by the Grand Jury of
Marion County. On the morning appointed for the shoot
ing of those ten men, the wife of one of the men thus
condemned to be shot, came to Palmyra with six little
children, called upon Strachan, told him her husband
was condemned to be. shot that day, and that these were
her children—that if her husband should be murdered
she would be unable to support the children, and begged
the inhuman wretch, with big tears iu her eyes, to release
him from the sentence. Strachan at first refused, but the
poor woman’s importunities were so persistent, that he
finally told her if she would raise him SSOO, and permit
him to use her, he would release her husband. The
heart-broken woman canvassed the town of Palmyra and.
found she could raise the sum of money required. Mr.
Revely, of Lagrange, Mo., furnished S3OO of tne amount,
and had Strachan’s receipt in his pocket for it. The
money was raised ; Strachan pocketed It; compelleed
the poor heart-broken, afflicted woman to submit to his
hellish lust, and then released her husband. For this
crime against God, against law, against all the nobler im
pulses and instincts of human nature, he has been in
dicted by 7 the Grand Jury of Marion County.”
Murder in France.—A horrible mur
dcr was lately committed iu the commune of Lensles
tang (Drome), near the railway from St Rambert to
Grenoble. A widow named Gardon, with her two sons,
occupied a small property from which they derived their
livelihood. The widow slept iu the kitchen of the house ;
the elder son, aged 21, in the cow-house; and his brother,
18, in the hayloft. During the night all three were mur
dered, and after the perpetration of the crime the au
thors of it set fire to the premises in several places. The
light of the flames alarmed the neighborhood, and on
some persons coming to the spot a dreadful scene pre
sented itself. The widow was lying dead on the kitchen
floor from blows with some heavy instrument. The body
of the younger son was found half burnt in the loft, and
with a deep wound in the throat, apparently from a
knife. The body of the elder was scarcely, recognisable
from the effects of the fire. The building, the greater
part of the furniture, two cows, a goat, and all the pro
duce of the late harvest were destroyed. Robbery does
nut appear to have been th? motive of the crime, as a
sum of 100 francs, which the widow had borrowed the
previous day, was found untouched in a cupboard which:
partly escaped the flames; a watch was also left hanging
against the wall. Public rumor attributes the crime to
vengeance.
Attempted Seduction and Consequent
“Murßett Werernave been rumors fit
Pans that a murder, committed by an officer quartered in
the Rue de la Pepiniere Barracks was to be hushed up,
because the perpetrator was said to be related to a person
oi distinction. Such reports are quite unfounded, and the
perpetrator of the crime will be tried in due course. The
Petit Journal publishes the following communication from
the husband of the victim: “I beg you to rectify your ar
ticle concerning the crime committed at No. 12 Galerie de
Cherbourg on the evening of August 18. My wife was, as
you say, extremely pretty; but her conduct was never
such as to provoke the slightest complaint on my part—
she was ever true to her duties as a wife and a mother.
M. George Xavier Fleury has been in the habit of coming
to my house for the last four months in the guise of friend
ship, and he showed us civilities vzhich, as it turns out,
was but the mask of the most odious designs On the 18th
ol this month he came armed with a poighard, and a pis
tol, and then, after a last and vain attempt to indue-' my
wife to listen to his criminal proposals, he murdered her
in her workshop in the presence of three astonished wit
nesses. This is the whole truth of this horrible event.
Your obliged, Eug. Petit.”
Girl Acquitted for Shooting her Se.
ducer — Miss Elizabeth Beatty was recently tried at Pitts
burg, Penn., on a charge of murder, committed last Janu
ary, in a Justice’s office. The young woman had been se
duced by a man named McCormick, and had a child by
him. He ref used to assist the poor girl in the fruit of their
sin, and treated her with contempt. She had him arrest
ed, and he was brought before a Justice, who bound him
oyer for trial. As McCormick was turning to leave the
office, Miss Beatty shot him through the heart, killing him
instantly. The defence 'did not deny the act, but pleaded
unsoundness of mind at the time. The mother of Miss
Beatty c escribed the condition of her daughter after the
discovery of her ruin, as most heart-rending The Jury

of Not guilty, on the ground of insanity at the time the
homicide was committed, and the prisoner was dis
charged.
Murder by a Lunatic Son.—The wife
of a farmer, named Lemonnier, residing at Fumichon.
near Escardenville (Eure), France, was lately found
lying dead in the street, a few steps from her own house,
having bcenmurdered by heavy blows on the back of the
head with some blunt instrument. It was immediately
suspected that the person who committed the crime was
her own son, a man 33 years of age, who had been twice
confined in a lunatic asylum, and had recently exhibited
symptoms of a relapse. This suspicion soon became a cer
tainty, for the gendarmes found the unhappy man engag
ed in washing blood off his hands, and near him lay a
heavy stick bearing fresh marks of blood. He was imme
diately secured and submitted to medical examination,
which left no doubt of his insanity.
Murder in Havana.— A. correspon
dent under date of Sept. 12th, writes; “The great sub
ject of conversation has been a frightful murder, which,
in some of its details, resembles the well-known case of
Dr. Webster. On last Saturday, the proprietor of a large
printing establishment left his place of business in Muralla
street, on. of the principal streets of the city, to go to a
neighboring street to collect the amount of a note fo»
$2,000. He was never seen again until two days ago,
when bis dead body was found m the porter’s lodge of an
occupied house, notabovetwo blocks from Muralla street.
Had it not been for the offensive smell from the decom
posing corpse it is difficult to guess how long his disappear
ance would have been a mystery. The skull had been
pierced by two bullets, and m the possession of a person
arrested was found a revolver with one barrel unloaded,
and to which the bullets fitted. It is also said that the
note was found in his possession.”
Murder and Suicide.—A murder, fol
lowed by the suicide of the supposed perpetrator, has oc
curred at Heume I’Eglise, near Rochefort (Puv-de-Dome),
France. As M. Faure, the Mayor, was returning from the
town to his residence in the environs he was fired at by a
man concealed behind a tree by the wayside, and mortal
ly wounded in the hetd. He was, nevertheless, able to
reach his house, a distance of about four hundred yards,
but died a few minutes later, without being able to utter a
word. Suspicion fell upon the murdered man’s eldest son,
who was arrested and lodged in prison, where he commit
ted suicide by hanging himself the following night.
Deceiving a Young Lady.—A young

First Lesson at the Biding-School.
—The next day the victim will arrive at the
school—a large, barn-like building—and will find
several oilier victims, old and young, undergoing
tuition from the riding-master—a man in boots,
with limbs of steel and lungs of brass, who
stands in the middle of the school, and thence
roars his commands. This functionary, with one
glance, takes stock of the new arrival’s power of
equitation, and orders a helper to bring in one of
the stock chargers for such riders—a strong old
horse, knowing all the dodges of the school, and
accustomed, so far as his mouth is concerned, to
the most remarkable handling. He comes in,
perhaps with a snort and a bound, but stands
stock still to be mounted—a ceremony which the
pupil seems to think consists in grasping hand
fuls of the horse’s mane and flinging himself
bodily on the horse’s back. The stern man in
boots advances and gives him proper instruc
tion, off starts the horse and takes iris position
at the end of a little procession which is riding
round the school. Then upon the pupil’s de
voted head comes a flood of instructions. Call
ing him by name, the riding-master tells him
that “ Position is everything. Don't sit on your
horse like a sack. Body upright, elbows square,
clutch the horse with that part of the legs be
tween the knee and the ankle, toes up, sir—this
is managed by pressing the heel down—where
are you turning them toes to, sir ? Keep ’em
straight, pray!—Tr-r-ot!” At the first sound of
the familiar word the old horse starts off in the
wake of the others, and the rider is jerked for

Corporal Punishment in Schools.—
The following is a copy of a bill which has just
been brought into the House of Commons by
Viscount Baynham and Mr. Dunlop, entitled,
“ A Bill to regulate corporal punishment in
schools and elsewhere:” “ Whereas it is expe
dient that provision should be made for regu
lating the use of corporal punishment by school
masters, tutors and other persons having the
charge of young persons for the purposes of tui
tion or training ; be it enacted by the Queen’s
most excellent Majesty, by and with the advice
and consent of the Lords spiritual and temporal,
and Commons, in this present Parliament as

Act it shall not bo lawful for any schoolmaster,
usher, tutor, or other person having the charge,
management, custody, or control of young per
sons for the purpose of tuition or training, and
not being the parents, guardians, or nearest
surviving relatives of such young persons, to in
flict any corporal punishment on any such young
persons otherwise than by the use of a birch
rod; and every person who shall act in contra
vention of this Act shall be deemed to be guilty
of an assault, and shall be punishable accord
ingly.”
Extbaordiary Effects of Sleeping
in the Moonshine.—A little boy, 13 years of
age, named Henry Lowry, residing near Peek
ham-rye, was on Tuesday night expelled his
home by his mother for some trifling misde
meanor. He at once ran away to a corn-field
close by, and on lying down in the open air fell
asleep. He slept throughout the night, which
wa« a moonlight one. Some laborers on their
way to work, seeing the boy apparently asleep,
aroused him; the lad opened his eyes, but de
clared he could not see. He was conveyed
home, and from thence to an ocular institution,
where medical advice was obtained. The sur
geon affirmed that the loss of sight resulted
from sleeping ,in the moonshine. The boy is
totally blind, and few hopes are entertained of
his ultimate recovery— English paper.
