BARROW, Committee. SAMUEL MA.TrITdWS, Oni motion of David N. Barrow, the meeting adjourned. Whe robber's Grave. In the year 181: , there was itn the neighlboirhood of Montgoiusery, iu Nrrth \Wales, an ancient lunanor-house, called Oakfield, which, like many of those old structures, ilsing its original iulirtatlce from the increased size and c,,|onvenience of modern btuilinlifs, had Ieen convert ed into a fartm-hof ,.s. TIe late ,i 'ctlpant. one James Morris, hall been an iidolent and somewhat dissipated rman; the farm con seqtuently fell into iti.s l Ile . g it e and an only daughter ii possession of the place. Shortly aflter is death, the widow took into her em ployment a young man Irotm r taltlt rdl -shire, of the name of John Newton, the hero of this little story, who had Ieen strongly rccommletnded to, her by her brst brother; atnd well and faithfully did he discharge his duties as bililff, fully justifying the praise andl recom mendations sithe received with himi. lle was an utter stranger in that part of the country, seenusl studiously to shun af acqttuaintance with his neiihbors, and to devote hitnself exciusively to the it. terests of his lemployer. 1li, never left horne but to visit the neightniring fairs and markets and to attend the parish church, where hisl presete-e was regular and his conduct 'devut. In short, though highly circutiilsect in hiis beha vior on all occasions, Ile wa-: a telatn choly, reserved matl ; and tS er the cler gyimant of the parish, to wh. t'Il he was always most respectful in his delenelanor. entirely failed in his elea:vurs to culti vate an acquaintance w\iiti hint. The farm, under his mttan:tia. ent, had im proved, and becatnie profitable; and the circumstances of Mrs. Morris were, by - his assiduity and skill, both prosperous and flourishing. In this mtan:ner more than two yeara passed, an:d the widow began to regard hintm nre as a friedl and benefactor than a servant; and was not sorry to observe her daughter's growing affection for imtt, wihich ap pearedto be reciplrocal. One evening, in November, 1812, beiing detained long er than usual lv bttsintss, at \VWelsh pool, Newton set ,,ut, about six o'clock, to walk home to Oakicid. It was au exceedingly dark nIight, and he never reached home again. The family be came very atnxious, atd ulpm i(nquiriUng early the following nornuitg at Welsh pool, they ascertained that he had been brought back to that town, not long af ter his departure from it, by two men, naned Parker and Peace, who charged himn with highway robbery, accompanied by violence, an offence then punishable with death. At the trial at the next as iss. he was pronounced guilty, on the testimony ot these two persons, which was clear, positive, and consistent * throughout, was sentenced to be hang ed, and left for execttion. lie employ ed no coansel, anttI called no witness int his defense; but ulotn being asked by the judge, in the usual fortm, "lie had anything to say why sentence of death should not be passed upon him B" he made, in atbstaunce, the foullowingextr ordinary speech: My lord, it is evident all I could say in opposition to such testimony would be vain and hopeless, The witnesses are meIn of. respectability, and their ev ideace has appeared plain and conclu aive, and my most solemt protestations of innocenoe could avail notlhing. Il have called no witnessa to charactor, and upona aeh evidence the jury could pri nopt uI i, verdict. I blame them not. Proe my soul, too, I forgive those men, .po. who. .atlo teetitmoy I have beeaiviet0i But, my lord, - Protest st ssblsmM bofgC.tkjs court, b~aRSo lordship, nd tbe all, be a f ' m whose preseace I mnust el J!nelloi for I mo about to 9. eme' Iat,t is codunry, . , r. have lrdoe no g quaintance here, beyond the household in which I have been employed, and c where 1 have endeavored to discharge I my duties, faithfully, honestly and well. I Although I dare not hope, and do not I wish that my life should be spared, yet 1 it is mny devout and earnest desire that a the stain of this crime may not rest up- i on my name. I devoutly hope that my i good mistress, and her kind and excel-i : lent daughter may yet be convinced that I e they have not nourished and befriended I i a highway robber. I have, therefore, in humible devotion, oflbred a prayer to e heaven, and 1 believe it has been heard and accepted. I venture tI, assert that, I if 1 anm inniocent of the crimne ifor which I sriflfr, the grass, for ,rl.e generatlil ' at least, \ill not cover Ioy grave. Mly lord, I await ,our sentec.e without a inuraaur, without a sorrow; and I de-,, v ,utly pray that all who hear nie now I lita repelat of their sins, and meet mee again in helaven. Thie ulifortullnate man was condenied and executed, and was buried in Monft go,,ri lry churchyard. Thirty years had ipassed away when I saw it, and the grass had not tien covered his grave. It is situated in a remote corner of the churchyard, far removed f'rt m all other gravecs. It is not a raised iiouiind of earth, but is e(-iil with the surrounding ground, which is. for siome distance, es- t pecially luxuriant, the herbage ,cing rich atnd abundant. Nulllermuu attempts t have been made by sonic who are still alive, and others whio have passed away to bring grass upon that bare spot. F'resh soil has been frequently spread upon it, and seeds of various kinds have keien sown. but not a blade had there ever 1 eeni known to spring from them, I an:d the soil soon became a -ý,tnth, emild, and stubborn clay. \ith respect tote t unhallppy witnesse's. it appears that Par ki '- ancest,,rs, had otnce owned ()ak ild.I and that lie had hloped by getting rid of Newton to remonve the lmain ob ,iostacle there was to lis re-p,,.-sessing itl oil that 'Pearce had, at the time of Mir. Morris's death, aspired to the handI ,I" his daugihter, inl whose affections lihe If. lite had been supplanted by poor Newton. The former soon left the i'.ighborhood, becanie a drunken and lissolute man, and was ultimately kill ied in soure liinewo rks, while in the act of blasting a rock. Pearce grew sul len and dispiiteid, his very existence suineed a .Jeenes to b ým ,d, iumae old 'exton of MontgomBe+ "is waied away from the face of the earth.' I have not seen the grave since 1850, I but I have heard that some person has cvered it with thick turf, which has unaited itself with the surrounding grass, except at the head, which is still withered and bare, as if scorched by lightning. TlIse prayer, however, of poor Newton that his grave might remain un covered for at least one generation, has been heard, and his memory vindicated in a most remarkable manner. The name given to tine grave was singular ly inajlpropriate: it should have been culled "thie grave of the innocent." The widiw, with lher daughter, left Oakfield, and went te reside wih her brother. !-o,r Dime weeks afNewtor1's burial, it is -aid his grave was, from time to time. found strewn with wild flowers, by wlhol d one was unknown; but it was observed, that after Jane Morris had left the, neighborlhaod not a flower was found upon the grave DENocRATIc STATE CONVNTIO.-IDn our advertising columns will be found a no tice from the D)emocratic State Central Counniittee, fixing the time of holding our State Convention for the 5th of March, and advising theelection of Del egates to represent the various Demo cratic constituencies in the same.

It is said that if certain offensive substances are placed where they are wont to lay their eggs, during the mionths of May and June, they will be repelled. A drop of the oil of wormuwood, sprinkled on an old cloth and then laid in a chest of drawers, will drive off almost all insects. Camphor gum, scattered along and uuder the ed ges of carpets, in the crevices of furni ture, and among the folds of clothing, iq rather disgusting to moths. Wh they have already Iburrowed in carpei sprinkle a little water over the infest! spots, then lay on a sheet of brown pa per and apply a hot iron vigorously. Vicegar would, perhaps, be even more efficacious than water, but bothof these applications may injure theim color of the carpet. The steam gathered will be too much for the moths. A chamber may be cleaned of vermin (and probably of moths) in tlAi way: First remove all furniture, bedding and clothing not infested, put a little sul phur ia an old-kettle and set fire to it, and set it in the chambet. Close every door and window and keep them shut until the smoke has disappeared. Then ventillate the room, and the vermin will have been repelled. The otdors of the snlplhr will penetrate every crevice of the woodwork and furniture, and every fold and seauu of clothing, and be a great offense to vermin of all sorts.

Augustine, alias Augustus Ii Baudouin, a young person of 11, was known in the town and neighborhoodas an active lad, and had been in place in respectable houses as "odd boy." This Un individual was lately tried for robbery, and while in prison, the authorities con ceived sonme suspicions, and ascertained her to ,e a female. On being asked what reason she had for wearing men's clothes, she said she had observed that or; men got their living easier than women; I but she rehfused to give any information , as to her Iirth and parentage. She was ts removed to the female wards, but her a repota4iane.e t, appear in woulanl's attire amrong hr fellow prisoners was so stl great. tha;t she conmuitted iicide by T hanging herself to an iron bar with a a pocket handkerchiief.
