Of the many interesting relics and fragments of antiquity which have been brought to light by the persevering re searches of modern philosophy, none could have more in terest to the philanthropist and the believers, than the one ive publish below. "Chance," says the Courier de Rtats IT tif, has just put into our hands the most imposing and in teresting judicial document to all Christians, that has ever been recorded in human annuals;" that is theideutical Death Warrant of our Lord Jesus Christ The document was faithfully transcribed by the editor, and is Jute verba : Sentence rendered by Pontius Rilale, acting Governor of Lowtr Galilee, rtatlny that Jesus of Xazaretii, siall suffer Death vjmn the Crotss: In the year seventeen of the Emperor Tiberius Cassar, and the 2.jth day of March, the City of the Holy Jerusalem, Anna and Caisphus being priests, sacrifiscators of the peo ple ofGod.

Wo learned verbally, yesterday, of a very unfortunate occurrence in Rutherford county, near Murfreeslyoro'. It ap pears that Mr. Samuel Rcjcker stabbed his brother- in-law, Dr. Smith, with a sword-cane, and that the latter died in a very short time from the effects of the wound. The particulars of the occurrence are not known, as it is supposed that no witnesses were present. EgT" A Vermont sheriff recently undertook to search a dwelling in Bradford, when the woman of the house mounted him with a poker and an axe, which being wrested from her she pulled the most of his hair out of his head, threw a boiler of hot wa ter upon him, and concluded the programme of ex ercises by cutting a three or four inch gash in liis head with a stove griddle, after which she was se cured, and a large amount of stolen property was found in her possession a partial illustration of "Woman's Bights." BlOT AT A FUNKIUL. As some Benevolent Society, with staff and regalia, were passing through the streets of New York the other day, their line of procession was broken by a car, whereupon the members beat the horses with their staffs, and attacked the driver. A mob col lected and threw stones at the car. Nobody was seriously injured. Two of the parties were arrested, ITuman passions will show themselves even at the portals of the grave. Pettieone Tunnel Completed. We arc informed that the Pettibone Tunnel, on the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, has been completed, and that a strong force is now engaged in laying the ballasting and cross-ties. The laying of the rails will be com menced and completed in a few days, and by the first of April it is expecU'd thatthe first trip of the cars will be made through its immense subterranean passage.

TheBaliunoro Sun, of Wednesday, has tho following in regard tb'tlfc'futureprospects of the road: The condition of tilings on this road is rapidly improving. An average of about twenty-five large tonage cars is now lorwarued over the whole lenirth of road, each way, and all the trains are running each way, with much punctuality. iimuaiuy. ine passenger riu 1" i I trains particularly are making good time. The Pettybone tunnel will be completed by this day week, and the necessity for working the zig-zag in nnmn nloi Hr- tliia -lr... road over the mountain will cease. We learn, however that this imncdiment has not contributed as much as has been generally supposed to the re cent embarrassments ot the road in its freight and passage businsss. Other causes operating to a great extent upon the old road cast of Cumberland have had a large share m producing these difiiculties. and among them has been the want of motive pow- 1 1 .11 jl .11- er, occasioueu oy me ueiay in me delivery oi en gines and cars contracted for a delay with which the late "strike" has had much to do. Indeed the obstruction at the tunnel, so far as it may have kept back the Western trade waiting for transpor tation over the road, has really been a shield to the old part of the line from the torrent of that trade which must have been precipitated upon it The company are taking some steps which promise to give their route additional and peculiar advantages over other rival lines between the East and West. AmtEST of a New Hampshire M. C. The Wash ington correspondent of the Concord Democrat re lates the following incident: "Maj. Gen. Samuel G. Chase is well known in your vicinity. It was but a few mornings ago that an M. C. was roused from his slumbers to accom pany an officer before tho magistrate. 'Is your name Peaslee ?' asked the catchpole, as that aston ished gentleman ver' cautiously opened the door. 'If so I am to arrest you.' The M. C, perhaps, thinking that General Scott or Mr. Fillmore had achieved a 'coup cf ctat,' asked to see the writ 'Oh 1' said he, seeing through it directly, 'he is a crazy man.' 'No matter for that,' said the officer, 'I know nothing about it; I must do my duty.' And so, after reluctantly allowing the M. C. to swallow his breakfast, ho was taken before the ma gistrate on the charge of felony, for wrongfully holding certain properties in that corporato body known as the Concord Bailroad. Messrs. Hale and Norris soon appeared and testified to the lunacy of Chase, who is here in constant attendance on the Supreme Uourt, ana who so successfully imposed v.f - - .-j j upon the magistrate as to get a writ for tho arrest of Peaslee."

While young Spring was undergoing his exami nation, his manner was modest, intelligent, and re spectful throughout, and he endured the test to his feelings with heroic fortitude. When the district attorney was about to ask him if he had a hand in the murder, Mr. Becd said: "Arthur, 1 am now going to ask you a question, and I want you to an swer it truthfully. Did you assist in committing the murder?" The lad replied, in a manner evi dently filled with emotion and truthfulness "IsTo, sir, I did not" While the prisoner was in conversation with one of the officers yesterday, he was asked "what was his belief? Whether he believed in a future state of rewards and punishments?" Ho replied: "Yes, I do." Ho wa3 then asked. "What he thought would be his lot after death?'' He replied: "1 will go right up into heaven; I am aware that nobody can effect this but God; but Priest Sorin can inter cede and pray for me." He was taken out of tho court-room last night in the same manner as the night before, by the mar shal's officers, without any difficulty occuring. We were informed that some of the crowd re mained around the court-room until 12 o'clock last night, and a few all night. At G o'clock this morn ing they had begun to assemble. Many of the crowd endure both hunger and thirst lor the entire day, rather than depart to their homes and lose the . gratification of gossiping about the matter. Ex citement answers, for th.s time, instead of food.

The prisoner's counsel urged him to confess his guilt, warning him that his case was hopeless, as there was no testimony to rebut the evidence against him. Spring still asserted his in nocence, and strove to fix the guilt upon his own son, who was the mam witness against the father. Toward the close of tho trial the hardened murderer expressed himself ready to be hung, and, when the verdict was declared, manifested crreat indifffimnrp "ihe Philadelphia Bulletin says : It is certainly a strange affair throughout The prisoner and the witness against him this son1 am both left-handed, and the crime wa3 obviouslv committed with the left-hand.
