Ilia abuse of bis wife baa been growing more and more aggravated and severe, until Friday night, hist, when, it acenis., he turned a fiend, and began to abuse her in a most brutal and outrageous manner first, by kicking and culling; then he struck her to the floor and stamped her with his heels. " After Dtmishiuii her in this war until he was tired, he took a butcher knife and cut her hair short. Still growing more nd mors) devilish, he broke a gridiron to shivers orer her head. Then, with a nif'e, he began to .torture her by hacking er in the face and on th breast and face nto slices, and to wake (be torture more .. , , tr . ... ..e severe, staobea ncr iu awervni pj body with nn old pnir of scissors. lie seemed to want to w:u ner oy de grees. During all Uns time he pv up kicking, cuthng and stamping, anu by the time his fury had abated he had meted such norntite wound that I He was almost extinct. Several of the citizens hearing the cries of the woman were attracted to the place. On finding that ther had discov ered what he had been doing, and fear- g that tbey would take measures to punish him, he Ilea to tne wood near bv, where he kept" himself concealed until Sunday morning, when he called at Mr. Robert Wallace's farm-house, and asked for some breakfast. Mr. Wallace, hav ing heard what had occurred on Friday night, and knewing that there was a writ in the hands of the constable for hirar rest, took it upon himself to arrest him, took him to town, aud delivered him into the hands of the constable. " The citizens, in the meaulime, hear ing of the outrage, and the critical con dition of his wife, became more and more enraged, and by evening began to show signs ot violence. ,-. Several citizens were summoned to assist .to guard him from violence About balf-past nine the constable de cided to move the prisoner to Justice Anderson s house, some two miles dis tant, for safe keeping, and for trial on the morrow. 'j After having gone about a mile with the prisoner, a posse of about thirty armed men came up. took lavlorand hanged him to a tree, where he remained until this forenoon. lie was then taken down and brought to town. When I saw his body it was lying in his own office. Hig wife, all cut and bruised from head to foot, was still alive on Monday It is probable that she will not recover. ! "A. D. Taylor was a man of educa tion, washy profession a physician, and is said to have been ' a very successful practitioner."' lie was about forty years of nge. A few years since he quit his profession and went to preuching, in which capacity he was very successful. being a hue speaker. During his minis terial labors he was connected with the Christian church. " When the war broke out he received nn appointment as surgeon in the Union army, which position he held until the war closed. Since that time ho hus been practicing his profession. ... un inquiring wnot could have in duced' him to abuse his wife in snch a borriblo manner, I was. told that there was nothing the matter but his own vicious nature. ' " " " ' ' AN "ASTOUXDISU MATTER." The Excitement In England Over the f OIllHtflOIIN-IMNeHNCII Act. London Cor. New York Times. This discussion of the contauious-dis- eases act is approaching a crisis. It is an astounding matter altogether. If England was ever a squeamish country sue hns got bravely overit. Ihink, it you dan, of large public meetings being held in London, Liverpool, Manchester, liir niingham, Leeds, etc., of mixed au diences, addressed by both men and wo men, going into the whole subject of these nets, with all its (fisi;usting details, At a large meeting in the Town Hull of Birmimrhnm. a few niuhts nico. where women formed a large part of the assem bly, speeches were made by Methodist clergymen, tho most indecent I have ever seen in print, and the papers declare that they were much worse than thus re- lorted. One of them that of Rev. Dr. luk was so outrageous that Kev. Ar thur O'Neil, a Baptist minister, publicly rebuked him, saying that if he had known the sort of speeches which would be made to a mixed audience he would have protested against holding such a meeting. J t win. be said, a wrone and shame ful thins; that subjects such us those men tioned that evoning should have been brought before a mixed assembly; and he doubted very much whether the priests and monks, about whom Dr. Rule had talked so much, ever said anything worse than that gentleman had done. He re minded the reverend gentleman, by the way, that poor, misruled Ireland wns the freest from those moral impurities which nlicted hiiiuland. And the Mayor of Dirminirham Pre sided at this meeting, and one ot the Al iermen introduced the brst resolution! But the opposition to the law and its ex tension is very violent. Ihe mob, in cited, it must be said, by women who ught to know what they are about, and bo are encouraged in turn by such nliil osnp'h'ers as Mr. J. 8. Mi" nd Professor Francis Newman, seems determined that otlung shall be done to purity lbs coun try from one of its most deadly evils at least thut it shall not be done in the way recommended by the elite of the medical profession and the clergy, and adopted, after a full investigation, by the unanimoks vote of both Houses of Par liament. In (he meantime the associa tion for promoting thej extension of the the act of lSiiG to the ciyil population of he Lulled Kingdom has just issued Us third report, pamphlet of ninety pages, which the objectiuug urged against tho act seem to be triumphantly an swered. This association 'consists of men of the highest position, professional J and social, in all parts of (be United Kingdom. Memorials ia favor of the extension of the act, from clergy auj laity, and persons of the highest eiui-neneeind- attainments, have been sent to ihe Leeislature: The letter of Miss MrrU, Jrhiph, the committee says, "for lucid expression (f comprehensive ar gument leaves iittic to tt dc;ired," has been very wiaeiy circuiniea. "We believe, says the report, "that the time will come hen we shall look back with astonishment at the legislation of this counu-y, which, almost alone among civilized natioim, i3 Jong per mitted i dire disease, affecting lnuoc.i.t persons and children jet unborn, torae unchecked througt) the land, and which made no efforts to react) a degraded por tion of our population, nor sinned a fains! than sinnine. from the ronae- tal, one in five is so aflected; at the Throat Hospital, fifteen per cent.; at the Children's Hospital, twenty per cent.; and at all the hospitals and dispensaries the children so affected are nearly in the same proportion. It was, therefore, the opinion of Sir Thomas Watson, Unrt., F. R. 8., etc., etc., that "steps should be taken to restrain a diseaso which counts its victims not only among the vicious and self-indulgent, but among virtuous women and innocent children by hundreds of thousands." I do not propose to give even the most hasty summary of this report, which, from a professional, moral and social point of view, is of great interest, but it shows, I think, conclusively, that the kw is as carefully guarded from abuse ns it can well be, and that it has thus far, when not violently interfered with, been very successful in its operation, and beneficial to all classes concerned. I have said that the party which opposes its extension and demands its repeal offer no substitute. There is a recoiu mendntion of voluntary effort in the establishment of hospituls, and the re formation of the social evil, bu, all such efforts have notoriously failed. Dr. C. Drysdale, one of the Secretaries of the Repeal Association, has his theory on the subject. He thinks the only way to to get rid of the evil "Is by making marriage enrlier, and by enjoining on young couples the ne cessity of not having more children than they can easily maintain. Facility of divorce, he adds, which has worked admirably in Indiana, in the United States, should be introduced into En gland, and with such and like arrange ments mankind might attain happiness and stamp out disease." . ,, I'erhaps the most important testimony adduced in favor of the act in this report, beyond its array of statistics, is the fol lowing letter from Rev. John Puckle, Vicar of Dover, an old earrison town. and long one of the worst in Knglnnd. He says the experience of the working of the act at Dover shows: ' First, that at least sixty per cent, of the worst elements of virulent contagion have departed from the town; second, that open indecency and downriirht as saulting temptation have disappeared by one-half (I think more) from nightly in festing our Btrects: and. third, thut a very strong bopy of the people of sound sense and feeling belonging to us, medicnl especially, is in favor of the act's work ing. It seems too probable thnt the violent and indecent clamor raised against this law will prevent its extension it may even procure its repeal. Ihe most its friends now seem to hope for is a com promise, by wnicn tne act will be con tinued in force at the naval and military ....! It , ri stations, wiiii a uoyai commission to examine into its working and results. That something ouuht to be done few but the most prejudiced and fanatical ran deny. The right to go about poisoning neonle in anv wnv nnirht not. to le if ii realty is, a part of the British Constitu tion. If it Is, all I can sny is that the British Constitution will sutler for it. At nightfall, with his heart full of hatred, his eyes glowing, and with the nnme of his rival on his lips, he rushes on her, seizes her by the hair ot the head, and drags her into the middle of the room. " Modnm," he says, "you are about to die. 1 he unfortunate woman tries to defend herself. With strength doubled by rage,he seizes her in his arms, drowns her face in chloroform, and when sheen deavors to cry for help he clutches her by the throat, and releases his hold only when, without having uttered a single cry, she fulls lifeless at his feet. He remains in the room in the prcs- . f . 1. ! 'J J ,t , . ence oi me nvm corpse uniu anyiignt. He rushes then, after double-locking his apartment, to the house of the man who had dishonored In m; it was bis dearest friend. With his heart overflowing with just hatred, Don Castro does not hesi tate. He carries a loaded revolver under his cloak, and knocks at the door of his rival's house. They tell him ho is out. He waits. His friend, Mr. Garrett, is one of the most distinguished men in Lisbon, nephew of the celebrated Gar rett, the leader of the literary revival of Portugal. Tired of waiting, M. do Castro goes to find two of his intimnte friends, to whom he relates the terrible event. He confides in them to arrange with Mr. Garrett the conditions of a meeting to take place that same day, with any weapon whatever, but without truce or mercy; in fact, the conditions of a mor tal combat. The hitter refused to fight, saying he could hot fight a friend whom he had so fearfully outraged. But he handed them a letter stating that he should leave for Madrid that same evening; that on his way to the railroad he would pass through such and such streets, and that he Bhould expose himself to the fire of his enemy without returning it, too happy to lay down his life in expiation of his offense. But M. de Castro will not commit a murder, end delivers him self into the hands of the Commissary General, to whom he relates the facts. He was arrested and lodged in jail, where ne awaits tne decision ot the Judge. Mr. Garrett has none to France, and intends they say, to retire to a Trappist monastery.
