letter, written at the convenient distance of 3,000

very pleasing entertainment, ond is liberally patronized.

Grounds, over fifteen thousand people assembling to
Witness the first grand match of the season between the
Atlantics, of Brooklyn, and the Athletics, of Philadel
phia. Most of the Brooklyn police having been detailed
for other duty, only five or six of the blue-coated and
brass-buttoned guardians of the public peace were on
band, a force entirely inadequate for the occasion, as
they were totally unable to clear the field, until the At
lantics themselves, clubs ift hand, volunteered their as
sistance. The ground onoo clear, those spectators who
Were in front would insist on standing up, obstructing
(he vision of those in the roar, which occasioned such a
roaring and shouting that play could not be commenced
until the obstinate individuals were at last prevailed
upon in some cases and forced in others to sit down.
When the two nines finally presented themselves in atti
tude for play, much disappointment was felt at seeing
Radcliffe in the Athletic nine, as his presence (not being
entitled to play) made it evident to all that the game was
to be a social one instead of a regular match game, as
had been anticipated; and we were informed by a Phila
delphia reporter who accompanied the Athletics that
the intention all along had been to make the two first
games mere contests for gate money, the regular matches
to be played in the Fall. All this would have been over
looked, however, had a fine display of science and skill
been afforded; but such was not the case, the fielding
being the poorest shown by either club this season, four
hours being occupied m getting the twenty-seven hands
put on each side. The batting was the only redeeming
feature, the display in this respect being certainly very
fine, every man striking as though his sole aim and de
sire was to make a home run. Every player in both nines
fielded miserably, dropping fly balls, muffing grounders,
throwing wildly, in fact, conducting themselves like the
veriest muffins, the few good points that were made
being entirely lost in the avalanche of bad play. With
.out further comment we append the score:

The nines from these time-honored institutions met
apenthe Union Grounds, Brooklyn, on the sth inst., to
decide the championship of New England and of col
leges About two thousand spectators wore present, but
the contest hardly paid them for their tedious journey to
the grounds, although occasionally brilliant displays
ware made on both sides. The umpire, Mr. Van Cott, of
Ike Una Club, of Mt. Vernon, was not very quick or ac
curate where his eyesight was concerned. He decided
one of the Yales out on a foul bound, when everybody
jGistinctly saw two bounds before it was caught. One of
the Harvards overran the third base, and was touched by
the ball when two feet away from the bag, yet was not
Zacidedout. In another instance he was also unques
tionably in error, allowing a Yale player to make his first
base when the ball was in the hands of the Harvard first
baseman, and held on to the base before the striker was
within three feet of it. We dislike always to criticise an
Empire’s decisions, but in this instance the carelessness
fir inexperience of the gentleman who filled the place
iraa too evident to pass by without remark. In the first
inning the Yales batted well for five runs—a considera
te lead, when we remember their fine fielding powers;
mt the Harvards proved equal to the emergency, and in
um handled the ash with consummate skill, rolling up
'tetvan runs in fine style. The next two innings gave the
jbarabridge men eighteen runs, the Yales obtaining but
, five, Hooker’s pitching being punished so severely that
X .each was sent in to deliver slows, a change that proved
wary beneficial, tne New Haven players making five runs
the Harvard’s three, in the fourth and fifth inning*!
Ae remaining four innings the latter still further in
creased their lead, scoring thirteen runs to .nine, the
Viand totals standing: Harvard. 41; Yale, 24. The vic-
V rs played throughout in fine style, Smith, Wells, Eustis
Bush taking the lead at the bat, while m tne field,
*»rrin, Willard, Austin and Bush deserved especial
Braise, and, we may add, received it, the large delega
tuu of University men who accompanied the club giv
*■ CLem after round of “ Kaka., rah*.” On the
i lo of the Yal’BL MoCutcheon, McCßmtock, French and
Doming sustained te-e credit of the nise, Deming mak
ing one beautiful eaten,. for which he got no credit, the
umpire deciding the striker not out, because the oatcher
fell down with the ball in his hand. Lewis, Wells and
Bush must also be credited with home runs made on
splendid hits, down past the Pagoda to the further side
of the velocipede track. The following is a full score of

The Mutuals sustained their seventh defeat this
season cn Wednesday, at Troy, at the hands of the Hay
makers, who were out on their meadow in full force, a d
did some ta'.l work. Over 5,000 spectators were present.
The betting was even, and the contest for five or six in
nings very exciting. During the first hour the batting
was light, and the fielding splendid, the New Yorxers
gaining the lead; but the Unions at last got down to
their work, and batted so heavily in the seventh and
eighth innings as to completely demo alize the Mutuals.
On the part of the Mutuals, E. Mills, O. Mills, and
Eggler played finely, Swande 1, Devyr, and Elbs hardly
sustaining their previous reputat’on. Of the Unions,

About 1,000 spectators gathered at the Union Grounds
on Wednesday, to witness the contest between the
champion Eckfords and New England’s best chib, the
Harvards. The play on both sides was fine. Of the
Eckfords, Allison, Treacey, Wood, and Pinkham led at
the bat, and Wood and Hodes in the field, the play of
the former being especially good. Of the Harvards, Wells
led at the bat, and Eustis and Willard in the field. The
Eastern players could not bat Martin’s slows with any

On Friday afternoon the Harvard College nine played
a game with the Athletic of Philadelphia, at Seven
teenth street and Columbia aventie, and the result was
the decided defeat of the latter. The fielding of the
Harvard was most excellent, but their batting not above
the ordinary standard. Once their players gained first
base they almost invariably stole to third base on the
pitching of Brosey. They made twenty runs on him up
to the end of the fifth inning, when he was placed in
the right field and McMullen took his place. Under his
pitching, wild and uncertain as it is, the Athletic held
their own, but the advantage gained by the Harvard on
Brosey could not be regained. It is a matter of astonish
ment to nearly all who witnessed Brosey play on the
nine, as to what merit be could claim. As a fielder he
is very ordinary, and while a good hitter, his judgment
on the bases, while running, is very dangerous. Of the
Harvard nine, Austin and Willard excelled in the field,
while Smith and Reynolds let at the bat. On the Ath
letic side, in the field, Sensenderfer’s play is worthy of
mention, five of the Harvards going out on fly catches at
his hands. Fisler did all he had to do, and Wilkins
played fairly. The following score gives the details:

The Star Club, of Brooklyn, visited Boston on the Sth
inst., and played a fine game with the Lowells, at River
side Park. Despite the attraction elsewhere, there were
about 2,000 spectators present, a great desire being man
ifested to see the champion amateur nine of Brooklyn.
The game began at 10:35, and as the sun shone full in the
players’ eyes, some catches were missed, and the game
was further prolonged by stopping for trains which
passed once in about ten minutes, making so much noise
as to entirely drown the voice of the umpire and cap
tains of the nines. In the third inning Rogers and Lov
ett changed places. Rogers pitched very wild, and as
the game was already won for the Brooklynites, they
batted carelessly, and made but few runs in the remain
ing six innings. We append the score.

The Base Ball Reporters, who are certainly the great

result would have been different, we think, had the Re

that was only another blunder added to the various

The Ivanhoe Club of Sing Sing, visited Hoboken on
Friday, and despite the frequent showers and wet ground
managed to play their returp game with the Eagles.
The visitors had but but eight men out, while the New
Yorkers were short three of their best men, Hicks. Mar
tin, and Gaughan. But seven innings were played in
order to allow the Ivanhoes time to take the evening
train home, the result being the signal success of the
Eagles, by a score of 43 to 12. Murphy’s swift pitching
was very effective, while Hicks, considering the sore con
dition of his hands played well, and Kane deserves men
tion for skill as short stop. Of the visitors, Horton, Cox
and Randall distinguished themselves, the entire party
departing well pleased with their receeption and treat

readiness for use, and stripping to their drawers, took
their places and pulled for a mile or two up and down
the river, their broad backs, great muscles, and splendid
action being greatly admired by all present. In th©
evening, by invitation of the Nassaus, the Harvards met

The Ibish Republican Cohvention.—
This Convention, which assembled on Mon
day last, and continued in session throughout two
days, was one of the most importont, in many re
spects, ever held in this country. If it shall have
inaugurated a movement that will in time free the
Irish voters of this country from the petty prejudices
that have heretofore made a majority of them the
willing tools of the Democratic magnates, this Con
vention will have accomplished a good object. The
Convention, on assembling, numbered 221 delegates
from the various States and Territories. These were
afterward largely augmented by additional arrivals.
The Covention organized by the election of the fol
lowing officers:
President, the Eon. J. W. Fitzgerald, of Ohio;

The following are the more important of the reso
lutions presented by the Committee, and adopted,
after some debate, by the Convention, the first reso
lution, on the question of sex, having developed con
siderable opposition.
Resolved, That it is the duty of the Irish people in
this Republic, and of all men over the whole world,
to give their support to those who on principle con
tend for the right of all to perfect liberty, without re
gard to color, creed, or sex.
Resolved, That loyalty to the American Republic, a
fixed and unalterable determination to stand by the
only free government on the earth, and to preserve
and defend it against the attacks and machinations
of all its enemies, is the first political duty which
the Irish citizens of this country are called upon to
Resolved, That to spread the principles of freedom
is a duty we owe to ourselves and to the oppressed
people of the earth, and one which is by all means
consistent with the international obligations we are
bound to discharge.
Resolved, That we ask for the oppressed people of
our native land, for Cuba, and the down trodden of
all enslaved lands, the sympathy and support of the
people and Government of the United States.
Resolved, That we protest against the presence of
the armed despotisms of Europe on this Continent,
and pledge our hearty co-operation to any plan adopt
ed for their removal.
Resolved, That the which induces so
many to neglect the cultivation of the soil and con
gregate in great cities we regard as an evil and one
which is consigning multitudes of the Irish people
of the country to life long misery. We therefore de
clare our determination to take measures to afford
facilities to our fellow countrymen to settle down on
the free and fertile lands of this great and glorious
Resolved, That we rejoice in the triumphant suc
cess of the Republican cause at the late Presidential
election, and pledge to President Grant our cordial
and earnest support in preserving and defending the
great principles of human liberty at home and
Resolved, That the existing neutrality laws, being
instrumental only in aiding the monarchies of the
earth in sustaining,their oppressive systems of gov
ernment, and having on various occasions placed the
American Governmen I ifi the anomalous position of
using their power for the support of said goveren
ment, and receiving only in return active and open
hostility from the British Government, we pledge
ourselves to labor for their entire repeal.
A resolution was offered, and passed after consid
erable debate, requesting Congress to pass a law
making foreigners citizens in one year after their ar
rival in this country.
A resolution was also passed in favor of the forma
tion of immigration societies, also against any dis
tinction as to race or color in membership of trades
union associations.
The Convention then adjourned, after the appoint
ment by the Chairman of the following National
Executive Committee;
District of Columbia—Capt. Daniel McMahon.
Louisiana—Major R. L. Shelley.
North Carolina —F. F. Lee.
Connecticut —Richard McCloud.

For Lieutenant-Governor—T. G. Godfrey.
For Judge of the Supreme Court—W. J. Gilmore.
For Treasurer of the State—Stephen Buhrer.
For Attorney-General—Col J. M. Connell.
Their resolutions are merely a rehash of the ex
ploded ideas of the past half dozen years, and on
which the Democracy have been so often beaten.
They demand the taxation of United States bonds,
and the payment of interest in currency; denounce
the protective tariff which they claim was framed in
the interest of New England; say that the Democratic
party was always friendly to the working man, and
the convention is therefore in favor of a limited
number of hours of labor, and are also in favor of
liberal grants of land from the public domain to
actual settlers.
Kings County Irish Republican As
sociation.—On Thursday evening, a large and en
thusiastic meeting of the Irish Republican Associa
tion of Kings County, Patrick D. O’Sullivan, Presi
pent, was held at the Hibernia House, in Hicks street,
to listen to an address from Mr. Moses Platt. He
spoke at considerable length in advocacy of the prin
ples of the Irish Republican party, illustrating it by
the action of the martyrs to Irish liberty in the past,
and concluded by proposing three cheers for the first
Irish Republican convention ever held in America.
These were given with a will. A series of resolutions
were then adopted, indorsing the Chicago Conven
tion, its proceedings, the administration of General
Grant, and the financial policy of the Secretary of the

measures to have the German language taught In the

J. O'Brien, in the chair. The committee appointed to
confer with similar committees from the German and
Irish Ronubiican Associations in tne district renoriad
that those societies were willing to join the Aseocia
eion, and recommended that they be received. The
report of the committee was received, and action on
the matter recommended postponed until the follow
ing [meeting. It is to be hoped that unity will pre
vail, not only in this,, but in the remaining Assemby
Districts. The Republican veto in this city is not
so strong that the party can afford to throwaway
auy portion of it.
Fifth Assembly District. —A month
ly meeeing of the members of the Fifth Assembly
District Republican Association, was held on Thurs
day evening last, at Lincoln Hall. Ten new mem

It is reported that certain clever
chemists in Belgium, have started the manu
ftmture of a mock champagne, and that largo
quantities of it have alreadybeen brought to this
country. It therefore behooves us to be care

liquors. The best place, we believe, to be Jim
Nolan’s Sample Boom, No. 2 Ann street, Her

genuine article.

No one should allow tha Summer
to pass by without making at least one visit to
Greenwood. It is a place wondrousiy replete
with natural and artificial beauties, and no one
can contemplate its surroundings and signifi
cant and suggestive emblems of mortality
without being improved thereby. Through
the energy and enterprise of Mr. Richardson,
the present superintendent of the Greenwood
and Fifth Avenue Railroad, the means of
reaching this sacred place have been greatly
improved. The streets through which the
cars pass are constantly sprinkled and kept
free from dust, and on this route there is no
danger of interruption from draw-bridges.
Visitors to this famous city of the dead should
be careful to take the oars oj the Fifth avenue
and Greenwood lino, passing through Furman
street, and taking passengers from Fulton and
Wall street ferries.

We have said good-by to June; have snuffed the last
odorous breath of her syringes, heliotropes, pinks and
roses, and have already forgotten that it was not always
July. And yet we have no reason toscomplain of June-
To be sure her days are the longest in the year, but if
they be pleasant ones, what need we care ? If our deeds
are righteous, light is certainly preferable to darkness;
and though there may be a charm in the long, social
evenings of December, June is ahead in pic-nios, excur
sions, and festivals. December may have its mince pies,
and whisky punches, but June has its strawberries and
cream, and nothing save love’s young dream can ap
proach within hailing distance of that luxury. But our
business is with July, and with due apology for any neg
lect we may have been guilty of, we hasten to say it is
here, and that already the nation has welcomed the an
niversary of its independence. Pyrotechnical displays,
interspersed with burning dwellings, shattered arms and
blistered hands, have attested the patriotism of the peo
ple. “ Yankee Doodle” has been played by the band,
and every one has ‘’celebrated” as best suited their taste
and inclination. So far, so good; but we are thankful
that the Fourth of July comes but once a year.
In point of weather, as yet we have had nothing to
complain of; two or three heated terms of short duration
have given us a foretaste of what we may expect, but
thus far cold feet of nights have been more frequent
than coup de solid in the daytime. Old people in the
country call fine, balmy, sunshiny days “ weather breed
ers,” for the reason that they are usually followed by a
long easterly storm, and it is possible that the cool,
pleasant days of the month that is past may also be in di
rect contrast with what is to follow. It is prophesied
that July will not be warm, but hot; that there will be
days which will encourage adipose people to go on in
their sins, fully believing that in the way of punishment
nothing hotter can be invented, and inasmuch as they
must stand this, they can endure anything; while lean
ones will soak up the rich juices from their brows, and
feel that the strength they can so illy afford to lose is
oozing from every pore.
But for all this, we of the city, who cannot get away—
not because we cannot afford it, but because we cannot
be spared from our journalistic duties, and must needs
prepare interesting matter for the Sunday morning read
ing of those luxuriating in country homes—need not par
ticularly envy those who are away. To be sure, the smel 1
of clover and the drowsy hum of the bee, the glad song
of the cricket and the hoarse croaking of the frog, the
rustle of leaves and the dreamy soughing of the warm
south wind, all read very prettily in a description; but
everybody knows, that has experienced it, that all these
pleasant things grow monotonous and tiresome, and
that even if the odor of new-mown hay is delicious, that
haying time is always accompanied by hot suns, that
scorch and burn and blister, even in the cool country, to
an alarming extent. They know, too, that country
houses are like ovens, and that at night there is no relief
from the annoyance of musketoes and other insects that
float and buzz about your ears with a familiarity that
anywhere else would be appalling.
And then the long, long days, with nothing to do, and
nothing but the daily mail from the city to render them
I guess so.
You count up how long you have been there, and sub
tract it from how long you have got to stay, every day.
There isn’t much advantage in that, though; it may im
prove your mental arithmetic, but it don’t make the
time much shorter. One day goes by, and you know
there is another coming just like it. You know the bees
will hum and the clover will smell, but you don’t feel
satisfied for all that, and would gladly exchange the
sweet perfume for one sniff of the unwholesome scent of
the city gutters—not that you particularly like it, but
because it would seem homelike; and, at last, when al
most wild and distracted with the humdrum weariness,
you feel that you would be glad to see fhe traditionary
dog, only that he came from the city, it is so trying to
have the dearly beloved one, suddenly at eve, present
himself in the doorway with all the city dust upon him,
and, happy himself, say, with the most nonchalant air:
“Well, I’ve come. Embrace me.” Of course, you don’t
do It, just because he asks you to, and you know he don’t
expect it. But if he could only realize that at that very
moment you were glad enough to eat him, dust and all,
hope might spring exultant; but when he came to know,
as he some time might, if only through the medium of a
fashion article, that under existing circumstances, and
in just that frame of mind, you would have welcomed an
organ-grinder just as warmly, always provided he came
direct from the city, his stocks would probably experi
ence a decline.
No, we stay-at-homes do not always have the worst of it.
We go on quietly; every day brings its work and its
pleasures; and, though we may occasionally weary with
the burden, and the heat, and sigh for green fields and
pastures new, we are never wholly dissatisfied, and ere
we know it the harvest is past, the Summer is ended,
and we are saved some of the vexations, at least, of a so
journ in the rural districts.
are always decided before July; but, notwithstanding
the fact that the general style is agreed upon, there are
always little variations here and there that give the ap
pearance of novelty. It is not certain, by any means,
either, that because a requisite number of dresses are
made in the early Spring, that the supply will not need
replenishing before the Summer is ever. Ladies delight
in change, so far as dress is concerned; and it is too great
a temptation for them to look upon ih.e handsome
suits exposed for sale in thp great dry jccdi eiuporiuxs
of the city, and not feel & desire w
At James McCreeby <fc Co.’s, corner cf Eleventh
street and Broadway,, a great reduction in the price of
every description of geoefe has been made, though it is,
perhaps, more particularly noticeable in the one item of
ladies’ sufis. Walking saits, In white Victoria lawn,
tucked and ruffled, are offered as low as $lO. Linen
walking suits, good also for traveling, sell at $6. Beside
these, there are bargains in white trail dresses for the
house, and in silk and poplin suits for the promenade.
In skirts and undergarments, of every description, the
same reduction from former prices is observable.
The demand for iron grenadine for suits has been
greater than the supply this season; i« fact the scarcity
of this celebrated goods has been very forcibly felt by
those preparing wardrobes, with a view to Summering
outside of New York, for very often has it occurred that
not a yard of it could be found in the city. This state
of things will, however, be remedied, as we understand
that a large quantity of these goods have been received
at this establishment, and will be offered at retail at an
early day. In silk grenadines, lawns, cambribs, piques,
percales, and domestic prints, James McCrbery & Co.,
offer a full line, while m mourning goods, hosiery, laces,
cloaks, shawls, parasols and umbrellas there is a most
elaborate assortment, and difficult indeed must be the
taste that cannot here be suited.

upon the shortest notice. Scma very elegant tucked
and embroidered wrappers are among the novelties just
now. In childrens’ suits there are very handsome
pique, Marseilles, and lawn dresses with over skiits or
tunics of pink, blue, and check silk. In tbe shawl de
partment we notice that for Summer wear the grena
dine chailie and woven Shetland hold conspicuous
places. In the lace department there is probably the
finest assortment in tbe city, though to form any just
estimate of the richness and beauty [that lies hidden

cavations going forward at the corner of Broadway and
Twentieth street, it is surmised that this enterprising

doubtless, see thsm fairly ensconced in an establish

far into the shade. Among the attractions to be found
at their present store, corner Grand and Broadway, are
some handsome pieces of Marseilles selling at bargains;

not a better place in the city. lu lace shawls, silk cloaks,
etc., there is a fine assortment, and in cloaks especially
there are decided bargains. A handsome, stylish gar

price that would be asked in more pretentions quarters.

most extraordinary inducements offered in tbe way of

Sixth avenue, almost anything in the way of rich dress
trimmings and millinery goods may be found, together
with laces, embroideries, hosiery and underwear, house

The very name of Bbodie has in it a sound of style

required than the mere fact that her walking suits are
made at the establishment of Mrs. Bbodie, No. 31
Union Square. In Summer specialties we see at this

Arrest of a Procuress.—A case
came up before Recorder Pope, of Hoboken, at eleven
o’clock yesterday morning, the details of which reveal
one of the modes by which young girls are inveigled
from their homes, and finally led to join the ranks of
harlots. At 4 o’clock A. M., Officer Burke, in the course
of his peregrinations, found a woman and young girl in
the ladies’ retiring room at the Hoboken ferry-house,
apparently asleep, and at once took them into custody,
and conveyed them to the lock-up. At the examination
at 11 o’clock, Officer Burke testified: For the last three
or four Sunday mornings I have seen Letitia Seis in the
vicinity of the Hoboken Ferry, sitting around there, and
endeavoring to get into conversation with men; she ap
peared sometimes to be half drunk; have seen her walk
ing in Hoooken with her clothes nearly up to her knees;
her general actions indicated that she was a lewd
woman; I found her in company with Susan Gillingham,
aged 14 years, in rue ladies’* retiring room at the ferry;
they were then apparently sleeping, or pretending to be
Susan Gillingham, being sworn, testified: I am the
daughter of Amelia Gillingham, aged fourteen years;
have always lived with my mother and father, and they
reside in Fifty-ninth street, New York; on the 6th day of
July I left my parents’house and came over to Hobo
ken, about 2 o’clook, P. M.; I met the woman, Letitia
Seis, for the first time; she, myself, and a girl about my
age, went into the bath, and after that we went to the
Elysian Fields, and stayed there, sitting about on the
grass, until about half-past 7 o’clock; while there each of
us had a man, who treated us to beer, sarsaparilla and
sandwiches; about 8 o’clock I and my two female ac
quaintances went to New York, and Letitia aud myself
went to the house of Mrs. Fifus, at No. 11 Elm street,
where we both slept; Letitia promised to pay Mrs. Fifus
when she came over again; Letitia and myself then came
over to Hoboken, and went in a boat with a man, and
were out all day, and returned in the evening to New
York; do not know the man who rowed the boat; he was
acquainted with Letitia; shortly after returning to New
York Letitia and myself again re-crossed to Ho
boken, after eleven o’clock at night ; stayed
many hours on board the ferry-boat, and then
returned to the woman’s house in Elm street, where we
slept; the next forenoon we again came over to Hoboken
and wandered about tbe Elysian Fields all day, and then
Letitia took me took me to a liquor store and we had
pork and beans; Letitia took bourbon, and wanted me
to take some, but I refused; we then walked around Ho
boken until late at night, when Letitia wanted me to
sleep in a horse car, but I refused, and we then went into
the ferry water closet to pass the night, and were arrest
ed this morning by Officer Burke; during all this time
Letitia wanted me to take a man with her in New York,
but I refused.
At the conclusion of the above evidence Recorder Pope
committed the woman, Letitia, to the county jail for
three months (the full extent), on the charge of being a
vagrant and a procuress.
During the examination, the agonized and almost
heart-broken mother was present. The little girl, who
seemed inexperienced in the ways of the world, but was
quite fair, was delivered over to the custody of her
mother, and the two departed homeward.

The Murder by an Insane Woman—■
Coroner’s Inquest,—Coroner Rollins yesterday held an
inquest at No. 432 West Thirteenth street over the body
of Mrs. Susan Lamoraux, who was murdered with a hat
chet on Friday night by her insane daughter-in-law,
Mre. Rosanna Deane, wife of Mr. George B. Deane, a
well known resident of the Ninth Ward. From the evi
dence, it appeared that Mrs. Deane had previously shown
symptoms of insanity, occasionally developing into seri
ous paroxysms. At the last severe attack- the attendant
physician informed Mr. Deane that it would bo neces
sary, in case of another attack, to send the patient to an
asylum, as it would not be safe to allow her to remain
longer at large, for she would probably make an attempt
on the life of some one if not restrained of her liberty.
A short time before this she had secreted a razor, and
when it was found had declared she had intended to put
an. end to her life with it. On Friday evening a number
of the family, with a few visitors, were congregated in
the basement of the dwelling,*and with them Mrs.
Deane. Mrs. Lamoraux, feeling fatigued, had gone to
her room and laid down on a lounge, and is supposed to
have fallen asleep. Unobserved by any of the party, Mrs.
Deane slipped out of the room, and was gone apparently
but a few moments, when she returned, and addressing
Mr. James M. Davis, who occupied, with his family, a
portion of the house, said: “Mr. Davis, there has been a
murderer in this house, kept here to murder me; and
you have harbored the murderer.” She looked wild, and
raising a hatchet which she carried in her hand, rushed
toward Mrs. Davis. Before she could reach the terrified
woman, Mr. Davis caught her and took the hatchet from
her. She then said: “I have settled one; you can go up
stairs and see if I have settled her.” She then attempt
ed to seize the hatchet, and it was with difficulty that
Mr. Davis could prevent her from wrenching it from
him. The daughter of Mrs,. Deane then came in, and
inquiring what was the matter, was told that Mrs. Deane
had flourished a hatchet. The latter was than taken
away by her daughter.
Soop afterward Mr. Davis recollected the expression
used by Mrs. Deane of having “finished her,” and going
up to Mrs. Laiuoraux’s room, in the third story, found tha
occupant lying an the floor beside the lounge, from
whioh she had apparently fallen. On examining the
body there were found several marks of violence, as
though made with a hatchet, and this was afterward
found to have been the weapon used. There were
wounds, or rather bruises, on the left side of the head*
neck, and shoulder, and also on the breast. A surgeon
was at once called in, but the woman, although breath*
ing when he arrived, never rallied, and died in about ten
Dr. Patrick J. Clark testified that he had attended
Mrs. Deane for five years previous to the past year.
Her symptoms of insanity gradually increased, and about
one year since he recommended that she be taken
care of, as it was impossible to ieU when she might at
tempt- to commit violence on herself or others.
George B. Deane testified that that for the past five
years his wife had been subject to attacks of insanity
more or less violent. Of late years these have increased
in violence. It was not believed, however, that there
was any danger from her during these attacks, more es
pecially as Mrs. Deane was apparently acting under th®
control of her eldest daughter. The jury rendered a
verdict “that the deceased came to her death from in
juries received at the hands of Mrs. Rosanna Deane,
while suffering from a fit of insanity, we further recom
mend that the said Rosanna Deane be placed in soma
proper institution for the insane.
The recommendation of the jury has been already
complied with, Mrs. Deane having been removed to the
Bloomingdale Asylum. The deceased was a native of
this city, aged 76 years, and was universally respected.
