The appointment by President Grant of Daniel E. Sickles as Minister to Spain, vice John P. Hale, reaiened, hat occa sioned ao much comment that we print below a sketch of certain portion, of bis career that have from time to time been brought to publio notice. Daniel E. Sickle, wan born in this city in October, 1821. When he was old enough to be put to some useful employ ment he wag taueht the printer', trade, which he followed for several years. As be emerged from boyhood be took part in ward politics, and soon became notorious in all the mysteries of ballot-box stuffing, rnnninK primaries, and manipulating voters at the polls. Ilia manner of life brought him into several damaging scrapes. In 1U37 he was indioted in the Court of Sessions in this city on a charge ot faUe pretences, bat- the matter was hushed np, through political influence. A few years later he was arraigned befere the same court and compelled to pay over certain misappropriated funds to one Moore, who appeared as plaintiff. In December, 1846, he was indicted by the Grand Jury on a charge of grand larceny. The offense charged against him was that he had taken a mortgage, entrusted to his care in his father's office for delivery to Eemble & Co., and sold it, appropri ating the money to his own nse. lie was tried for the offense, and acquitted on the plea of the statute of limitations. In the meantime, Sickles bad studied law, and had received admission to the bar in 1843. Ilia activity in local poli tics was rewarded by a nomination for tba State Assembly, in 1S47, aad this was followed by his election. At this time he was living with Fanny White, the keeper of a notorious house of prostitu tion in Mercer street, and it was the cur rent belief that she supported him with the wage, of her shame. A curious in cident took place which brought his name before the public in no enviable light. There was a milk bill due at the bagnio of Fanny White, and early one morniug, when the milkman called for the pay ment, Sickles' mistress took the money from bis pocket and gave it to a servant girl to settle the claim. The money proved to be counterfeit, and the servant was arrested, and on the trial all the facta came ont. During the session of the Legislature, Sickles took Fanny White to Albany and introdnoed her in the Assembly Cham ber. This scandalous conduct created a great deal of indignation, and the House by a vote passed a censure npon the act. In 1852 there was a bitter fight in this city over the office of Corporation Coun sel, Robert J. Dillon and Nelson J. Wat erbury being the opposing oandidates. The friends of Waterbnry prepared a oir cnlar addressed to voters, which wa, en closed with a ballot in an envelope, and taken to the Broadway postofllce lor de livery. Sickles belonged totheeppesing faction, and when he got wind of this, gathered his roughs about him, and with several carriages drove to the postoffice. He charged the building, captured it and tearing open the mail bags, carried off the obnoxious documents. Da was ar rested upon the charge of robbing the mailt, hut, at asual, the matter was hushed ap and never came to trial. In 1S55 Sickles was elected to the State Senate. He took a conspicuous part in that body in (Uhtiog the Albany Bridge bill, and also in defending the Trinity Church eorporattoa in the contest over their property. The statement has been made that he received 110,000 in each of these cases for his influence. At any rate be was living the following year at toe rate of 130,000 per annum, which was a painsooks, Jaconets, Cambrics and Hair Cords, Victoria, Bishop's and Long Lawn, India JJulIs, Twills and Books, Tarletans, Swiss Muslins and Organdies.- WELLS .fc COLL, 207 Main Street. remarkable change for one who had been comparatively poor but a short time since. His Senatorial career was cut short by his nomination by the President as Secre tary of Legation to London. It is under stood that Mr. Buchanan, then Minister to England, solicited this appointment, and it was made against the protest of Mr. Marcy, the Seoretnry of Slate, who, as an old New Yorker, had had occasion to know a great deal about the appointee The new Secretary of Legation carried hi, characteristic feelings with him to England, much to the aonoyanee of his chief. lie borrowed money freely, and in return gave drafts on the United States Treasury. The Secretary of the Treasury at the time, Mr. Guthrie, re fused to honor these drafts; and when at last Mr. Buchanan was obliged to send Sickles home, the disappointed creditors, among whom were some lordliBgs and men of fashion, followed nira, ana tn vain imDortuned him for payment. ' Upon reaching New York from his foreign exploits, dickies again plunged into nslitics. He rjrecured the nomina tion and election to Congress from one of ths lower districts of this city. Uis op ponent contested the seat, and it was charged in the public prints that Sickles imported voters from Brooklyn, and affi davits to that effect were printed. He was distinguished for nothing during Lis first term, save the expression of ultra pro-Southern and pro-slavery sentiments, all of which he repudiated, when the war opened a better chance in another direc tion. He was re-elected to Congress in 1858, and it was during the latter part of this term that be became an actor in tne most terrible and disgusting tragedy that has stained the annals ot the national capital. The circumstances of Ibis affair, as ap peared upon the trial, were these: Mrs. Sickles, who was the dauehter of woman with whom it Was alleged Sickles had once maintained a criminal conneo tion. resided with her husband in Wash ington. There, through an introduction bv her husband, she became acquainted with Philip Barton Key, a gentleman of cnlture and address, wno became a ire ouent visitor to Sickles' house, and the acquaintanceship with Mrs. Sickles oven tnallv ripened into criminality. It is said that Sickles knew or inspected of this intimacv. At Bny rate, it was th common talk in the city long before he took measures to avenge bis dishonored bed." An anonymous note addressed to him. with details of Mrs. Sickles' crime, roused him to aotioo. It appears that eighteen hours after the receipt of this note, and when, as the prosecution afterwards contended, be had had ample time to cool off from the first effects of the dreadful disclosure, be sallied out with a friend, and finding Key at the corner of iiiyfayette place, near the Club House, slaughtered him where he stood. This was on a Sabbath afternoon, as Key was on his way home Irom cnurcu. oicmee snot mm wuu a revolver in the groin. The wounded man took refnge behind a tree, crying oat. "Don t shoot me." "Dont mur der me." Sickle, followed him up, and shot him again. He foil to the sidewalk, and for a moment rested his head npon bis arm. Sickle, then stood over bim and shot him in the breast. Just then Butterworth came np, and touching Sickles on the shoulder, advised him to desist. Sickles took his friend s arm, and the twain walked away. The mur derer exhibited ths utmost coolness during the entire affair. Key never spoke after the third shot. He was taken into the Club House and expired in a few moments. The murder took place Febrnary 28, 1859, and ths trial came off in the fol lowing April just ten years ago. It lasted from the 4th to the 2Cth, and cre ated great excitement both in Washing ton and throughout the country. A great array of counsel appeared for the defendant Among them were Edwin M. Stanton, James 1. Brady, John ftraham. Reverdv Johnson, Thomas Francis Meaber, and Colonel Phillips, of. Alahama. The Hon. iiooert uuia, now of Richmond, Virginia, conducted the prosecution, assisted Dy flir. oarnsie. Toward, the close of the trial Mr. Ould endeavored to introduce testimony as to Sickles' previous bad character, but it waa overruled. The sympathy of the jury was evidently with Sickles from the outset lae Curt room was crowuea with his New York friends, who made boisterous demonstrations in his favor, and the rulings of the judge were nearly always in bis favor. Brady and Stanton made elaborate arguments for the de fense, and when the jury rendered an ao quittal, a soon, followed rarely witnessed in a courthouse. The people went wild with cheers, one of the counsel kissed the liberated man, and another sat dowa and wept Sickles was carried in triumph to his home, and a band of music in tbe evening serenaded bis counsel, and would have serenaded him but for the good sense of Mr. Brady, who made them a speeph, and beC2el them to go heme. Letters of congratulation poured in npon Sickles from all parts of the coun try. He informed his friends that be wonld immediately procure a :7urce from his wife, and f'?r providing for her decently, cast her from his mind forever. But eot long after, wben he returned to New York, to the astonishment of the world, he took his wife back to live with him. This extraordinary conduct swept every old friend from his tide. Men who nil NOVELTIES of the Period. had stood by him through the trial like brothers, turned away from him forever in the intensity of their disgust. His political enemies visited him with Iheir most withering sarcasm, and the Tribunt published a'n article npon him almost on equaled in its brutality. Sickles, in reply to these strictures of friend and foe, came out in a letter defending his conduct, but it won back none of the former. The , cause of this strange course was never publicly known, but the story cur rent in private circles was that certain promissory notes bad been discounted at the Shoe and Leather Bank in favor of Sickles, bearing the indorsement of Bagi oli, his father-in-law. This indorsement of Bagioli failed to recognize as his, and to save himself from .the accusation of writing what he should not write, Sickles submitted to terms he went back to his wife. Tbe notes were settled several years afterwards. The year following the murder the se cession trouble, commenced, and Sickles, true to his Congressional record, was elo quent in defense of the course of the South. It was stated at the time that some weeks after the firing npon Sumter, wben the whole North was aroused to a frenzy of warlike excitement, Sickles met a band of Southern sympathizers at the New York Hotel, and harangued them npon the folly and wickedness of coersion. Suddenly he gave way to the current and blossomed into an ardent patriot. He raised a brigade for service in the field. lie was in hot water from tbe beginning. His first trouble was with the Union Defense Committee be cause they wonld not accept his vouchers and pay money on them when they were written with a lead pencil. At last he received $11,000 from tbe Committee, but subsequently he took the men's re ceipts for the money to Washington, and upon tbe claim that the money naa oeen paid out of hi, own pocket, he received it over again. The brigade cost the city, to arm aud rqmp, nearly tJUU.UUU, When it was taken to Washington. Sick les marched it to the White House, and boastiogly informed Lincoln that it had been raised out of bis own means. General Sickles' principal military ex ploit was at Gettysburg. By a blunder he nearly lost tbe battle to the Uoion cause, and led his men to be mowed down like erass. This affair induced a nrominent General to assort, in a com munication to the press, that if General Sickles bad not lost his leg at tbo bat tle of Gettysburg, be would have been cashiered." The wound kept him from active service in the field during the re mainder of tbe war. When the Reconstruction Act pasBed Congress, and the South was cut np into eatrapcies, Sickles was sent to lord it over South Carolina. He was as cruel and arbitrary there as the most ardent hater of the vanquished Carolines could wish. He arrested citizens and threw them into the military prisons without examina tion ; seized funds in the bank, shot up the savings institution, and forsed tbe people to submit to humiliation, of all kinds that they were powerless to resist. He made himself thoroughly detested by those over whom he ruled, and it was with intense gratification that they learned at last that President Johnson had resolved to remove him. He came back home, was banqueted by the Union League Club, toasted by John Jay, and rested on his honors. During the last Presidential election, while drawing pay as an olhcer in the army, he traversed the conntry making political speeches. Uis candidate wis elected, and now he has his reward the mission to tbe proudest and most punc tilious nation in the old world. Bad and Romantic Story. Correspondence of the Beaton Journal.

II., and charged with steal ing an immense amount of clothing, bed ding, fancy articles and jewelry from many prominent families in tbe above city, where sne was employed as a aew- At... ing-woman, is a very saa out romantic one. she was born in wentwortn, a. u , and is now a little over thirty years of age. Her homo is one of the most respectable in tbo county where she lived, and her parenta and connections are es teemed for their many good qualities. She had the misfortune to have been born while her mother was in a state of in sanity, and the mental infirmities of the mother were transmitted to the child. The not unusual result of luoh a oircura stance was an ineradicable antipathy be tween the mother and daughter. Subse quently the frequently recurring attacks of insanity on the former led to the placing of the child with her grandmother, where she wa, tenderly oared for and kindly brought op. She developed into a pleasant and sweet-tempered child, and wa, beloved by all who knew her. When about seventeen years of age she became engaged to a most estimable young man, with whom she had been acquainted since childhood. He was rich'only in good habits and enterprise, and ambitious to do well, he left the granite hills of his native State, and in the Tar West be sought to make a ho?ie for his affianced bride. Fortune favored him, and in a few years be was nearly ready ic turn to New Hampshire to claim her who had so long been the center of bis affee.'ions and his hopes. The preparations fov the marriage and the departure of the twt for the West were nearly completed whto Mist Colburn received the sad and entirely unexpected intelligence of the sudden sickness and death of her lover. This terrible blow cast a blight over her prospects for life, and gloom and melancholy settled npon her. The infirmity which she inherited from her mother showed itself at various times, and sad results were feared. Sud denly Miss Colburn disappeared, and it wa, soon fonnd that she bad gone to work in one of the factories at Nashua, where she hoped to forget her trouble. Soon her health commenced to fail, and then she went to Concsrd as a seamstress, where, as is already kaown to onr readers, she was trusted and esteemed by many. About the time of the breaking out of the late war, Misa Colburn was again engaged to be married, tbe gentleman knowing all the circumstances of ber previous life. With her blessing be enlisted in the Second New Hampshire volunteers and never returned. His captain said that he was one of the bravest of hi, command, and that he wa, last seen doing his whole duty in the thickest of the first Bull Run fight. It is seldom that a young woman of Miss Colburn's age is called upon to experience so many trials and disappoint ments, and it is not strange that at Con cord, whore she is best known, she has the sympathy of all who are acquainted with ber or who know the facts of her checkered life. With the exception of the one charge now laid to her, her life is supposed to be a blameless one. An in terest in her sad case ha, been awakened among these who are now preparing to do for her all in their power, with tbe hope that tbe clond may yet be removed from her mind, and that the world may yet have some happiness in store for her. 115 GET TUB BEST. $15 , Sent by Express, Cash on Delivery.
