not sunk hcrsalf, as was at ono times
believed, but has arrived at Cadiz In
safely. Her destination was Lisbon, for
which port sho hid a cargo, but upon
enuring that lmrbor,sha was. ignallcd not

between Portugal and Great Britain, un
der which tho officers would bavo been

TUB TWEEIJ JURY UISAaUEi:.
New Yoke, Jan. 31. Tweed' friend
wore somewhat excited in court last night
when tho prosecution sought to bavo that
gontleman placed in custody till the jury
roturned. The attempt, howover, was
abandoned upou tho request of tho de
fendant's counsel. The jury camo Into
court at half-past 10 o'clock this morning,
and when the foroman announced that
thoy could not possibly agreo, thoy were
accordingly discharged. There was an
Immense gathering to hear tho result.
After tho aunouncemont by Iho foreman,
that ho thought tho jury could not agree,
Judge Davis expressed a desire to bear
irom others, as to tho probability of an
agreement. Another Juror thun said that
the Jury wero of the samo ilnd since 11
o'clock last night, and that thero was r.o
prospect of an iigrcemont.
Peckman for tho prosecution then ad
dressed the court, applying for another
trial for Tweed.
Tho defendant's counsel thought It
would ha n hardship to go over tha cao
again, now that Tweed' civil suit was set
for February 17, and preparation for it
wes necessary. Alter fome (urthor argu
ment tha court said It would dccldu ou a
now trial to-morrow.
Thero i a rumor that idevon of tho
Tweed jury woro fur acquittal, and only
one for conviction, but it is generally un
derstood that they stood tilna for acquittal,
a id threo for conviction.
It Is now rlntcd for tho third time, that
tho jury stood 11 foracquitul and ono for
conviction. Tho dissenting juror is aid
to bo Mr. lliiduton, who remained II rm to
tho close, notwithstanding the efl'urU of
hi associate tu. Induce him to chango.
Fullorton, counsel for Tweed, vns romt
wliat surprised that any should favor nc
qulttil ofter tho clmrgo ol' Judgo l).ivi.
Fflokhsin, for tho prosecution, was ex
ceedingly mortlllcd with thu result of tho
trial, and tarongly hints, disngroenient of
jury wu secured In an illegal manner, and
the jury must huvo been intluoncod by
mercenary motives. Tho caso will bo Im
mediately brought up for rotrrial, and tho
prosecution confidently look forward to a

"1 WAS DRUNK AND DID NOT
KNOW WHAT I WAS
From the New York herald, 25th.)
ASKING bBNTKhCE 10 HE l'A38Il.
Mr. Phelps slowly roso in his seut and
asked tho court to pes tentenco cf doath
upon the prisoner, in accordance with the
remittitur of tbo court of uppoaltt making
such obligatory upon them.
KOsTKlt'a ONLY WOltDS.
Mr. Clark, thoclork, asked thu prisoner
to rise. Ilo did so proinptly,lut his knees
trembled visibly. It was evident lie kcenly
foll the terriblonosa of hi situation. He
did not raise hi oyet, but still kopt them
bent upon tho floor.
"What bavo you to say," asked Judgo
Ingraham, "why the court should not pro
ccod to pas seuloncu upon you?"
"1 never intended to kill Mr. Putnam,"
replied Foster. Ho could say no more,
but huru broko completely down, Ilu
pulled out hi handkerchief and wiped
tho tears from his eyes.
Judgo Ingraham waited somo little
time, during which a death-like silence
pervaded tiiu room, and, seoing that Fos
ter intended to soy nothing further, pro
ceeded to address him as follows :
UKMAHKH OV THE JUDOC.
It becomes tho duty of the court to fix
tbo day upon which sentence beforu pro
nounced upon you is to bo oxocuted. It is
somo time since you wero tried, nnd at
that trial found guilty and convicted of
theciimo of murder in tho first degree,
and sentunced to be executed. You ap
pealed from the sontenco of tha court of
oyer and terminer to tho general torm of
thi court, and in consoquuncn of that the
duy on which you wero to bo executed
passed away. On the hearing of the ap
peal tho Judgoiwnt wa confirmed, and
the day was tlxod for carrying out tho
scntocce. You appealed to tho court of
appeal, and the day for execution again
pascd away. Tho court of appeals has
confirmed tho decision of tho lower court,
und havo pnnttho proceedings back to us
with directions that tho jmlgmont bo car
ried out to elocution. We have exam
ined tho papers and wo tee nothing in
them no reason why wo should not pio
cced in obedience to tho order of the
court of appeals, and, tiniest you have
something to ay why wo thould not, wo
shall discharge that duty. Your counsel
are In court, and if thoy have anything to
say wo will hoar If.
FOtTER 81-KAKS AOAIN,
During the tlmo Judge Ingraham was
delivering the above remarks Foster stood
with hit hand, behind hit back, hit head
down and hit eytt nearly closed. lie lifted
her his eves a moment and said, "I did.
not Intend to kill him, tlr." il then
dropped hit head again upon hitjbreast.
Judge Ingraham continued hit remarks,
and proceeded to past sentence at follows'
We can feel with you aud your friends the
difficulty of tho potltioa In which you are
placed. It Is not for me to refer to the
circumstances of the homicide. Our dutv
Is discharged when we designate the day
when tbo sentence of the court it to bd
carried Into effect; but before doing to 1
cannut omit urging upon you the Import
auca of preparing lor the solemn event.
Tho time allowed you for this purpose is
very tbort. It 1 but a few week beforu
tho time will come when your Ufo must bo
terminated, If that sentence It carried out.
Thoro is no other court to which you cau
appeal There is no further appeal for
you to any earthly tribunal, except theex
ecutlvo of this ttute thould think
fit to exercito the power vested In
him by tending you a pardon
or chango of sentence. With that wo
havo notiilrrg to do, 'We urgo you not to
trust lo any such hopes, and thereby be In
duced lo ponpono tho preparation neces
sary for tho solemn ovout which must fol
low the sontenco. I beg of you to im
prove tho tlmo left you. It will soon pass
away. Although tho tlmo will go slowly,
yet surely it will bring you to tho termina
tion of the short period loft you. Sea tu
It, therefore, before It bo too late that you
mako preparation. Wo havo nothing to
do now but to de.tignato tho day, and the
court, by virtue of tho power and au
thority vested ir. them under the atatutu
and In obedlenco to tho directions of the
court nf appeals, designate Friday, tbo 7th
of March, 1873, as tho day on which the
sentence heretofore pronounced on you of
death shall bo carried into execution,
cr.osi.vo or thk ordeal.
Foster maintained tho same attitude to
the close of the sentence. The writ was
now rend to the sheriff directing him to
seo to the execution of tho sentence, and
Foster wa removed to the Tombs.
After ho had been taken from the sher
iff olllco, whoro he remained a lew mo
ments subsequent to his sentence, wa
placed in a close carriage, and into this
closo carriage Deputy Sherilla Shields and
Steven stepped to accompany tho con
demned man to his
LAaT HOME ON KARTIt.
During tho ride Foster spoko very littlo to
his companions, and seemed terribly de
pressed. Ho said, "I wa drunk and dd
not know what I wa doing." Foster is a
big, strong man and a roticcnt ono. Ilo
has displayed during hi cocflnemect a
cold reserve, that is most astonishing. Only
the few friends whom ho has left have been
allowed to see him, and ho has manifested
a very great disliko
TO KECK IV E A. RErORTEU
From any newspaper.
A ho passed through the first gato of
tho Tombs, where the paste of admission
are received by keeper John McCaffrey,
ana wmie smeiat and btevent wero
standing by him, he said:
"Well, John, I don't think I will givo
you much bother.
I WON'T ASK ANY TICKETS
Of admission from you. I have done with
aii;ihoso things. Don t want to teo any
body." Then tho doomed man, hi head bent on
hi breast, passed Into tho next gato of tho
Tomb", which Is defended by keeper Ken
dall, an old whito headed and vigilant
keeper. A ho walked through the yard
LOOKED UP AT THE fKY,
And taw the placa at which the gollnw '
was to stand, and then, for the first time,
he became nervous, and shuddered visibly.
From the cell which he used to occupy on
tho second tier in tho southern part of the
Inner prison ho was taken down to cell
on ML'itDEnxn'a row.
The cell is badly fitted up and is vory
damp and unwholesome, a all the cell's
aro in this section of tho prison. When
I Pnklnr entnpoit tlia rnndamtimt nail .ml ll.a
door was closed upon him ho brokodown
the strong man of iron will. Ho threw
himFelf on tho wretcLed prison pallet and
wept liko n woman for fifteen or twenty
minutes. During tho afternoon ho was
not visited by a single person, not even by
his lawyer who bad defended him beford
the court or appeals.
HIS WIFE, WHO HAS HEE.V HOST DEVOTED
To him, hearing of tbetcrrible newt, did
not have the heart to call upon him.
The other prisoner who aro confined in
the prison on charges nf slaughtering
human beings, with or without provoca
tion, wero fearfully dismayed by tho tid
ing of Foster's sentence. It was deemed
almost certain by these- criminals that
Foster would cscapn the consequences of
this red-handed crlmo. No other murder
er who ha ever been confined in the
Tombs ha had so many chance of escape
from Justice. Foster has been sentenced
to death three different times.
