tion took place in the city, nnder tbe au

the college faculty expected to derive
some adyaotoge, in connection with a
very select society of eminent surgeons,
i The notorious criminal Peleavitte was
hanged by tbe neck, in the military
camp, by way of variety from the usual
methods of punishment. . In connection
with the culprit's sentence, the judge read
the decree which bestowed tbe fellow's
body, after death, upon the Royal College
of Surgeons. By means of strong influ
ence this society bad secured the Caver
expected by the faculty of our college,
and greatly to the disappointment of tbe
latter. , ,
i However, during the interval of two
months before the time appointed for the
execution of tbe sentence, the Catholio
priest, Father Durfee,' who had minis
tered all along to the spiritual wants of
tbe criminal, secured by some means a
reversion ot tbia decree, anq ooiainea

Catholio cemeteries near tha oity, as that
of an accepted member ot tnatcnuron.
; Tbe College of Burgeons were now dis
.nnmniml in inra. and bishlv incensed
at this course ; but as the reversion of the
former decree was not reaa unm mo any
preceding the execution ef Delenvitte,
there was not sufficient time allowed to
take legal action in the case.i

fall from the scaffold, he had, as is far too
oftpn the case, sustained no dislocation
or fracliire of ihs nppk, and accordingly
died a horrible death by strangulation.
! After having been removed from the
spot and delivered to the church, several
medical gentlemen obtained Father Dur
fee's consent to experiment on the lifeless
body with a new process of resuscitation,
jtfost singular to relate, these gentlemen,
to their littar apjooishment, discovered,
after twenty minutes' labor, unmistakable
indicationa of returning animation.
I The heart began to beat, irregularly,
spasmodically at first, it ia true, but very
forcibly, and with signs of great natoral

that by this means respiration might be

supposed, created a vast deal of interest,
and greatly increased the desire of tbe

pffered five hundred sovereigns for the
body, to those who bad it in charge, and
afterward, secretly, to any one who would

prevented any such tempting bid being

TO BC COKTIHCfD.
Haaaaered by Indians Tbe Sxp'
rlenee ol a Kentaeklaa In the Far
From the Louisville Courier-Journal, 10th.
Three of tbe passengers who arrived
by the mailboat from Cincinnati yester
day attracted no little attention, iney
were a very tall man and two children.
Tbe man, beside being tbe tallest among
tbe passengers, was dressed in a manner
well calculated to draw curious eyes to
bis really well-proportioned ngure. Kan'
dom estimates put him at not less than
six and a half feet high, and he wore an
odd-looking cap, which sported a folly
developed squirrel tail, giving bim an
effect not unlike that of the trappers who
figure in the wild Indian romances of tbe
weekly papers of New York. His vest
and trowsers were of well-worn buck
skin, and bis coat was an old black gar
ment that had seen all its best days. He
carried in his arms a child not more than
two years of age, and by his side was a
little sweet-faced girl. His appearance
leading some of his more inquisitive ob
servers to question bim, he told a most
beart-rendiug story of the last few months
of his life.
He bad emigrated with his wife and
child from one of the interior counties of
this State to the territory of Montana,
where he settled npon a piece of land,
building himsolf a cabin home, and pre
paring to spond tbe remainder of his days
in that far-away region. Tbere he lived
a long time unmolested, and there another
child was born unto the little family from
-Kentucky. Their neighbors were few,
and lived long distances Irom tbem, but
tbey nevertheless felt little apprehension
of tbe dangers incident to their new life.
One day the father left to go on a hunt.
taking tbe little girl to a neighbor's, and
leaving his wife and tbe baby at home.
When he returned a few days afterward
he found his wife dead upon tbe cabin
floor, near thecradls of her infant child,
Her head bad been crushed in by some
heavy weapon, aud the scalping knife bad
done its fearful work. Tbe infant in the
cradle was alive and had not been mo
lested. Everything valuable, including
two or three rifles, had heeo taken. away,
and a partially burned corner showed
that tbe Indians had attempted to fire the
building, bat that the flames had sunk
and died away before they could coo-
sums any great portion ot tbe cabin or
reach the helpless child in the cradle.
After giving all proper attention to the
remains of k 'a wife, the Kentnckiaa, tak
ing with him his two children, set out to
return to bis native state, lie walked
with them twenty miles before reaching
a point at which he cou,ld secure a con
veyance. He was inquiring his way to
the Nashville depot on his arrival in
Louisville yesterday, and is believed to
have left here by the afternoan train. A
gentleman who heard bis story was
about to offer him pecuniary assistance,
but tbis he abruptly declined, stating
that he had quite sufficient to take him
to his relatives, with whom he wished to
leave his children, that he might return
to the West and avenge bis murdered
wife. He passed along Fourth, siret on
bis y toward the depot, and many
wondering eyes followed nim as ne jostled
along tbe crowded way in hia singular
garb, with bis two children clinging to
