Lewis, who was sentenced at the last term of the Circuit Court of Inde pendence count}’, to be hung for the mur der of Wells C. Bewley, bis father-in-law, was executed at Batesville on Friday the 29th ult. The Balance of the 6th inst., says : The murder for which this man was hang was one of the most atrocious we have ever heard of, and committed tinder circumstances of such a nature as made it singular as well as infamous and cold-blooded. He killed his father-in-law. in the presence of his own wife and child and his victim’s wife, on the public highway, (near Searcy. White county.) while they were ail traveling together to Tex as, for no'other cause, that we could ever learn, than adisagreement in reference to some property, which Lewis claimed. After hav ing approached the traveling carriage from behind, and shot Bewley down whilst lie was sitting holding the reins with which he was driving, he deliberately re-loaded his gun and approached him again, while he was lying, weltering in his blood, and probably mortally wounded, and shot him a second time. We cannot imagine how such a fiendish act could have been committed whilst the murderer was in his right mind, and the statement of the unfortunate man to his spiritual advisers, while in confinement, was (hat lie was under the influence of liquor, when he committed the crime, and had his passions highly in flamed by the suggestions of some rowdys about the grocery in Searcy (White county) concerning the aggravating character of his father-in-law’s treatment of him. . He further acknowledged, that except in reference to the disagreement about the property, he had never entertained a hard feeling towards the man lie murdered. But he has paid to an offended law the penalty of his crime, and gone to answer to that higher law,” before the tribunal of _I. : .1. Ll_:__ ;n„nni,Vnf.‘Ane. -,1I man secrets stand already revealed there ; and we can only hope that though deemed unfit for a place among his fellow-men on earth, his transgressions w'ere pardoned, by Him who only has power to pardon, before he went to he judged. w Tho following facts in reference to Lewis’ history, were obtained from him by Rev. Mr. McCarver. of the M. E Church, who attend ed him to the scaffold. He was horn in Pickens District, South Carolina. He was to some extent religiously raised, and considered disobedience to his pa rents ihe first step in the carSer of wickedness which led to his unfortunate end. Among other things, too, the excessive use of intoxi cating liquor and keeping the company of bad men. he says, assisted to corrupt his morals and harden his conscience. The crime for which he was executed was committed when he was intoxicated, and when, as we have stated, his passions wore inflamed by tlie sug gestions of other men. He thought he re ceived the forgiveness of his sins on Sunday tlie 2-1 th of April, but afterwards was serious ly in doubt about it. There was a very large crowd in town to witness the execution, variously estimated at from twenty-five hundred to four thousand. The prisoner was conducted to the gallows at eleven o’clock, accompanied by Rev. J. S. Mc Carver and Rev. G. W. Kennard, as his spir ' ituai advisers. Mr. McCarver, on behalf of tlie prisoner, read a chapter in the Ililde, sung a hvmn, offered prayer, and made some touch ing remarks to the assembly. At about fifteen minutes to twelve o’clock, the rope was adjust ed around tlie prisoner’s neck. The cap was kept over his face the whole time, and his face was not seen by tlie crowd at any time after he arrived at the gallows ; and he did not say a word to the people, but was engaged in earnest prayer tlie whole time. In a feyv minutes after tlie rope was put around his neck, tlie drop fell; the unfortunate man struggled about fifteen minutes in the cmbiace of death, and his soul took its flight to “ that undiscovered country.” The Loss of the Steamer Sc. Nicholas— Incidents, &c. Tlie Memphis Bulletin of the 3rd Inst., says : Among the passengers by the Phila delphia, yesterday, from St. Louis, were Messrs. IVm. Ilenley and Vvm. Monday, pilots, who are a committee appointed by the St. Louis Pilot Association, for the purpose of searching for the missing re mains of Mr. Edward Stephens, one of the pilots of the ill-fated St. Nicholas. They purchased two yawls at this port, and will descend the river in them, one on each side, making diligent search all along the shore. A large reward is offered by the Association fo" the recovery of the body, information of which is to be -left with Capt. E. F. Dill, at the wharf-boat. Rev. Thos. M. Finney, of Brunswick, Mo., also came passenger on the Phila delphia. and left last evening on the John Simonds for below, in search of the bodies of his nieces, Mrs. Ben. V. Ciiiine and Miss Dennica. A liberal reward is of fereii for thr recovery of either or both ot the bodies, intelligence respecting the same to be left either with Messrs. Lam bert & Bronaugh, Helena; Johnson &. Peay, Napoleon"; Wirt, Andrews & Co., Vicksburg, or with the captains of the packets Kale Frisbee, Victoria or J. G. Cline. The Helena Southron of the 4th inst., says: The hull of the St. Nicholas wai caught aboutone mile this side of Friars Point by Mr. S. Boice, and it is now safe, though under water more than a foot. Before it sunk he recovered several barrels of pickled pork, lard, and flour, and says that there is a large quantity of lead in it which will be recovered when the water falls. It is supposed that the sale is in the hull, and, it is said, contains 83,000. Last week this paper announced that a tall young man was lost from the St. Nich olas, but who he was, was not known From the best information we can gather it must have been Mr. Alexander, who lives at Trenton or on Big Creek in this county. He had five negro women and all were lost. The saved from the St. Nicholas state that all the ladies were provided with lile preservers, of a worthless kind, and win dow shutters, and they jumped into the river with these; yet but one was saved. They sunk immediately, before skiffs horn the shore or Susquehanna could reach them. Several persons had floated under the boat and were clinging to the wheel, when it gave way and may have killed some, or they may have drowned without loosening their hold, and are now holding to the wheel. The Helena Shkld of the 30th ult., says: One enterprising individual made a nice little speculation by the loss of the St. Nicholas. That boat bad on board a num ber of beef cattle, and some of them were ; blown into the river uninjured or jumped i overboard after the accident, and made j their way to the shore. Eight of these j animals landed a short distance below this city, as we learn, when the man referred] to caught them, sold the entire lot for 8150, | and “ sloped ” with the funds. We did ' not hear the rascal’s name. BY TELEGRAPH! LATER FROM EUROPE, ARRIVAL OF THE NIAGARA.’ New York, May 5. The steamship Niagara arrived at Hali fax to-day, bringing Liverpool dates of the 23d ult. COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. Liverpool, April 23.—Cotton—sales of five days 29,000 bales, of which spec ulators took 1,000, and exporters 3,500. Estimated sales on the day of sailing 6, 000 bales. The market has declined 1-1(3 to a- Middling and lower qualities hav ing declined most. Saturday.—The cotton market closed with a declining tendency. The quota tions were—fair Orleans 8Jd ; middling Orleans 7^d ; fair Mobile 7Jd ; fair up° lands 7£d ; middling uplands 6 15-16d. GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. The money market is generally un changed. The Bulletin in the Bank of England has decreased ,£545,000. The news from the Continent is alarm ing. Austria has sent an ultimatum to Sar dinia, demanding a disarmament and dis posal of the volunteers. Three days has been given for a reply, and in case of a rxxfncol wAitld i.nl Eighty thousand more Austrian troops have been ordered to Tecino. Austria has rejected England’s final proposition. French troops are moving towards Pied mont. The three days given by Austria to Sardinia would expire on the 28th. England telegraphed to Vienna a strong protest against Austria’s menaces. Austria refused to reconsider, and had already prepared a manifesto to accompa ny her declaration of war against Pied mont. The Easter holidays prevented the full effect of the news in England. Three per cents fell three francs on the Paris Bourse. England’s proposition to Austria was a general disarmament, and for the admis sion of the Italian States to the peace Congress. Ail the powers except Austria assented to this. General Marmora had telegraphed the Flench Government that the Austrian army had made a significant movement on the stratagetical line of Tecino, and he feared an attack any moment. Napoleon had held a council with his ministers. The King of Sardinia also held a council with his ministers. The Constitutional announces that a part of the army at Paris had been order ed to be ready to march. The English Journals think that the last chance of peace has about vanished. THE OVERLAND MAIL. St Louis, May 4.—The Overland mail arrived here to-day, with San Francisco dates of the 11th inst. Mr. Bishop, with forty men, who left Fort Tejolin soim; time since, to co-oper ate with Lieut. Beale, was attacked at Colorado crossing, by from six to seven hundred Mohaves, Pantahs and Tremus. The engagement lasted three hours, and a large number of Indians were killed. This occurred after Mr. Bishop had given them presents and permission to pass through the country. Mr. Bishop retreat ed, aud sent to Col. Hoffman for assis tance, who was expected to arrive and attack the Mohave villages about the 15th of April. ---«-»-*■ Additional News per Steamer Niagara. New York, May 6.—Paul Morphy on the eve of corning to the United States, played and won eight games simulta neously blindfolded. Two Other games were drawn after playing seven hours. The London Herald’s Paris correspond ent says: “ Preparations for war are now being pusiieci lorwara wiin leverisn ra pidity, notwithstanding the professions of peace and willingness to disarm.” The London Times says that prepara tions for war continue in all quarters of France, and troops are stil concentrating at Lyons. A French army is to be col lected on the Rhine frontiers, and nume rous cavalry regiments were on the march. Prussia.—The Arch-Duke Albrecht’s mission to Berlin was entirely successful. A Convention had been signed, whereby Prussia agrees to send 28,000 men under tbe-Prince Regent to the Rhine, in case negotiations should fail. The contingent force of Bavaria is to be increased to 60, 000 men, tlie eighth federal corps to 60,000 men, and other contingents are to be held in readiness. The newspapers of Prussia had been requested not to publish anything respecting these preparations. The Prus sian Government orders a corps d’arinee of 70,000 men to be placed on a war foot ing. These measures are said to be purely on the defensive. The Turin correspondent of the London Times says: “ Count Cavour must fall if war is not declared, and such an event would possibly be the signal for insurrec tions in various parts of Italy, and perhaps he the cause of serious disturbances in Piedmont, where 20,000 Italian volunteers confidently await hostilities. The steam ers on Lake Maggiore, with one exception, have been placed at the disposal of the Government. The King of Naples still survives. The Government of Rome had sent a circular to the Bishops urging the collec lisn of two legions of troops. The attempt, however, proved unsuccessful, notwith standing a large bounty was offered. Turkey.—The appearances of war had aroused fears of an insurrection. The Russian armaments at Besarabia are confirmed. It is intended to assem ble 100,000 men in Georgia. .— -♦♦♦ -The Atlantic Telegraph Company are said to be actively engaged in making arrange ments for another attempt to carry their pro ject into effect. -The County Court of White county, which has been in session this week, appro priated the sum of $12,000 from the county treasury for building a new court house. - When Mr. Buchanan’s term ends, eleven years will have expired since the Pres dency has been occupied by a southern man. =j ''-0 markets7&c.~ Citizen Office, Df.s Arc,) ’ Wednesday, May 11. 1859.
