CITY OP EVANSVILLEl TUESDAY, FEBRURY 22, 1848. WABASH AND ERIE CANAL. In consequence of the numerous inquiries made as it regards the prospect of our canal, one of our citizens thought it would best re lieve public anxiety by addressing a letter, and obtaining his answer, to Charles Butler, Esq., of the city of New York, who it is well known is the agent of the bond holders, and for them negotiated the bill of last winter, from our legislature, which arranged our public debt.and secured the making' of the canal to this place. Mr. Butler is also one of the Trustees of the canal. We have understood there have been some who have felt an apprehension, that the Trustees did not intend to carry out their prom ises in good faith in finishing the canal to this place. Such an idea appears to us absurd, foron failure to do it, the whole contract made by the bond-holders, is forfeited. "Not only do they forfeit their canal bonds, in whichis ex pressly inserted a condition that they complete the canal to this point, and all the advances they have made or shall make onaccount of itt but the State would be discharged from obli gation to pay those, which in consequence of this arrangement, were thrown upon the State. It will be remembered, that those of our pub 1 jedebtors who surrendered their bonds.dad new bonds given them, one half to be paid by the proceeds of the canul, the other by the State. We subjoin extracts from the letter .above referred to, so far as relates to this subject. MCBDEE OF A CHILD BT ITS MoTHEH, AND Suicide or the Mother. One of the most painful tragedies, says the Rochester Advertis er of the 8th inst., which has been our prov ince to record, occurred in Irondequoit, about four miles from this city, on Sunday evening, bejng no less than the murder of an infant child by its mother, and the suicide of. the mother by hanging! The circumstances, as far as we have been able to gather them, at this early hour, are as follows: On the even ing in question, between 6 and7 o'clock, Mrs. Barnard, wife of Alanson Barnard, one of the constables of Irondequoit, requested her hus band to go to a neighbor's and procure a pail of milk. . Mr. B. was absent somethinglike an hour, having stopped . to talk, as is usual amongst neighboring families, and returned home between 7 and 8 o'clock. On reaching the door of his house, he was met by a little girl, some eleven years of age, who said to him that she "could not find her ma." Running hastily into the house, he examined the beds in the several rooms, the outhouse, &c, making a loud noise at the same time to attract the at tention of the neighbors one or two of whom came in a few minutes. By this time a light had been procured by the little girl, and the house thoroughly examined, and on proceeding to the cellar, Mrs. Barnard was found suspended by the neck with a handkerchief to a beam On looking further they discovered heT infant child, about eleven days old, lying dead in bed, who appeared to have been strangled. From the story of the little girl it seems that soon af ter Mr. Barnard left, the mother remarked that she was sleepy, and would lie down for awhile and proceeded to the bed-room for thatpurpose when it is supposed she strangled the child. In a short time she came into the room occupied by the little girl, and told her to go and get in to her place in the bed, and lie still not to stir when the mother undoubtedly proceeded to the cellar, and putan end to her own Ufa as stated above. Nj possible cause can be as signed for the commission of this rash act. The mother was an amiable, pleasant woman, Despatches by the Magnetic Telegraph. ADDITIONAL FOREIGN NEWS BY THE HIBERNI A. .
