He*e in Iowa the boiling point was just reached in thin year's elec tion, and it floated to the surface a couple of demagogues, renegades, Ju dases, venders of their birthright for a mess of pottage. They are very proper and legitimate scum, for the boiling pot of repudiation, and it is very proper now for the democratic party to shout itself hoarse over the election oi these scum congressmen and call it a democratic victory. Of course it is a democratic victory and so was Bull run. 4THE Davenport Democrat, is one of fl§r opponents that don't feel like crowing a whit over what some peo ple term democratic gains in Iowa.

We, of Iowa, have been out on the battlefield with the enemy, and there isn't anything left to brag of. After a while the smoke will have blown away, and SI, ire will be time enough to call the tell how it happened, and why. 'W K desire to say as a matter of sim ple justice, that there were several democrats of Centre township, and may be a very few In the country, who, on pure principle and from an honest purpose, voted for Judge Sampson and went earnestly opposed to Weaver. They did well and we gladly record it. There was, too, a considerable number of the German democrats here and perhaps else where in the county who voted for Sampson. They, too, were moved thereto by their honest convictions and steadfast purpose to maintain honest money, They deserve favora ble mention which we gladly accord to them. A large part, however, of of the democrats of this city who may have opposed Weaver, did so from a dislike of Weaver, or not car ing for him, they traded him off to obtain votes for Thompson for Clerk.

It seems there were none of the passions of men to which the green itackers of Iowa, in their late canvass, did not appeal. This whole cam paign was baaed upon an effort to en gage and irritate the passions, with out regard to reason or care for justice. The Sixth District well illustrates this. Now Gen. Weaver used to be the most rabid temperance man in the State of Iowa, and was the leader of the republicans who bolted Gear for Governor on temperance grounds. And yet there was issued and circu lated all over the Sixth district, in the interest of Weaver, last week, a circular appealing to the saloon men to support Weaver aa their friend, and punish Sampson aa their enemy. We copy this strange document else where. It will be seen that Weaver thus made use of the just sentences of Sampson—when on the judicial bench —in punishment of saloon men vio lating the law, to gain votes for him self. This would appear to be a verj mean appeal to the passions of men. And yet it is no worse than the ap peals made by that party to all the other and lower passions of the worst jxHiplc.—Stat?

We might as well hit that lie on the head while it is fresh. Frank Hatton never boasted anything of the kind.

Men, as a rule, are easily attracted by a beautiful face, but still it is an internal beauty of character, by which a woman can exert the greatest amount of influence. A tiuc-minded man, though at first enamored by the glare of personal beauty, will soon feel the hollowness of its charms when he discovers the lack of beauty in the mind. Inestimably great Is the influence a sweet-minded woman may wield over those around her. It is to her that her friends would come in seasons of sorrow and sickness for help and support—one soothing touch ler kindly hand would work won ders on the feverish child a few words let fall from her lips in the ear of a sorrowing sister would do much to raise the load of grief which was liowlng its victim down to the dust in anguish.

The rough school-boy flies in a rage from the his companions to find solace taunts of in his mother's smile the little one, full of grief with ita own large trou ble, finds a haven of rest on its moth er's breast and so one might go on with instance after instance of the in fluence a sweet-minded woman has in the social life with which she is con nected.—»S?.

The atatement of the crimea againat the election franchiae ia condenaed in chapter 7, title 70, of the Revised Statutes, and your atten tion ia especially called to aeetion 5520, which enacts that if two or more per aona, in any Stato or Territory, con apire to prevent by force, intimida tion or threat, any citizen who ia law fully entitled to vote, from giving hia aupport or advocacy in a legal man ner toward or in favor of the elec tion of any lawfully qualified per aon aa Elector for President or Vice President, or as member of the Con gress of the United Btatea, or to iu jure any citizen in person or property on account of auch aupport or advo cacy, each of auch peraona a hall be puniahed by a fine of not leaa than $500, nor more than (5,000, or by imprison ment, with or without hard labor, not less than aix months nor more than six years, or by both auch tine and imprisonment.

Though transpiring many years ago, ita detaila have lost none of their freahneaa, and the high atanding of the familiea and their persistent eflorts to suppress every thing relating .to it, have tended to perpetuate its remembrance, and ren der it a romance that even at this lale day all Kentuckiana lova to talk of and wonder over. The murderer, or infatuated avenger of another'a wrongs, was J. O. Beauchamp, the son of a respectable farmer, near Bowl ing Green. He waa a young law atu deut of nnuaual promise, whoso tal ents and addreas had attracted the favorable notice of the afterward raurdered Solomon P. Sharpe, at that time attorney-general of the State. Young Beauchamp waa of ardent temperament, entertained exalted ideas of woman'a purity, and once upon hia vacationa chanced to meet Miaa Ann Cooke, a beautiful young lady, who, during his abaence in the pursuit of hia studies had, with a wid owed mother, taken up her residence near his father's farm. It was a caae of love at firat sight. Miea Cooke waa melancholy u a lov er's lute, lived in great privacy, and her mysterious movements and inten tional withdrawal from society threw around her a halo of mystification that fired the ardor of the law-stu dent and made him a willing slave at her feet. He called upon her, actual ly forced himself into her presence, and borrowed hooka of her, aimply to afford him an excuae to call again.— She repelled his advances in a manner that only lnred him on. He persecut ed her with kindneaa and haunted her with attentions. Ho proposed, waa rejected she would never marry.— He persisted with an excess of pas sion and ardor that induced her to tell him her story, and wrung from him a promise of revenge. She had been betrayed, she said, by Col. Sharpe. Her case was a pecu liarly sad one. Col. Shsrpe had been raised in her father's family. The sa cred rights of hospitality he had re paid by filching the daughter's virtue. And ahe, like many another, became uiukUji vac euo fttts U wlftt. one had been famed for her beauty, yet her disgrace had withered ita charms and crippled ita powera. Her family had been wealthy, but adveraity had overtaken them. Her father r.nd male relativea were all dead. There waa no one to avenge her wronga. Beauchamp, tied to her fate by the silken corda of a desperate love aa well aa by the romantic notion of a chivalric temperament that urged him to waah out by aasaaaination or challenge the wrong done, readily took an oath to hurl Sharpe to the doom he deaerved. "Sharpe will not fight," said Miaa Cooke when Beauchamp announced hia intention of calling him out "he ia too great a coward." That waa in 1821. The legislature was in session at Frankfort. Beanchamp readily found Col. Sharpe at the Mansion house. The colonel recognized him cordially. "I've come to Frankfort to sco you on important busineas," and Beauchamp took him by the arm, aaying, "Let's take a walk." They went to a retired spot by the river side. The bell at the Mansion house rang for supper. Beauchamp turned upon Sharpe with a nervous manner and eye spark ling with anger. "Do yon remember the last words Miss Cooke, whom you ruined, spoke to you Sharpe atoou as if transflked. "I am the avenger whom, in the apirit of prophecy, ahe, the last time you ever saw her, warned you would right her wronga." Sharpe atood still deigning no re ply. "Will you fight a duel with me?" "My dear friend," cringingly spoke the attorney-general, "I cannot fight you on Miss Cooke's account." "Defend yourself, then, coward and villain that you are." shrieked Beau champ, drawing an enormous dirk. "I have no weapon but a penknife." Beauchamp threw him a Spanish knife. "My dear friend, I cannot fight you," still urged Sharpe. You d—d villain, what do you. mean by that? That she is not worthy you ahould fight her friend and avenger?" "My friend, I mean that I never can fight the friend of that worthy, injured lady. Had her brothers mur dered me, I would not have raised my hand to defend myself. And if you are her husband, I can never tight you." "I am not her husband, but her friend and avenger. She sent me to take yonr life. Now, d—d villain, you shall die." lie raised his dagger. Sharpe ran. Beauchamp seized htm by the collar. Sharpe fell npon bis knees and begged "ili for his life. "Take my property wholo es let n tate is at your command, but, oh, me live," he cried. Beauchamp released his hold, slap ped Sharpe's face, and kicked him as he arose. "Get up, you coward, 111 publicly horsewhip you to-morrow in the atreet, you infernal coward," he aaid. Beauchamp meant to be aa good aa his word. He procured a horsewhip, and presuming that Sharpe, surroun ded by his friends, would make a show of reaiatance, provided himself with pistols, with which to finish him. Sharpe felt that: Be who flshts and ran* ivir. Mar lire to SgM another day. So before break of day he was on his horse ea route for Bowling Green. Beauchamp returned to his home. Miss Cooke now resolved to take ven geance in her own hands. Daily she practised with pistols, till her aim be came deadly. She tried to lure Sharpe to her house. He avoided her. Beauchamp refrained from any further attempt on Sharpe's life to give Miss Cooke the opportunity she wished for. It never came, and this desire to kill him heraelf gave to Sharpe many a day of life. In June, 1824, Beauchamp and Miaa Cooke were married. And then he claimed he had the right to aasassinate his wife's seducer. Sharpe was now a candidate for the legislature, but his treatment of Miss Cooko added to his unpopularity, so he announced that Miss Cooke'a child waa the offapring of a negro. He even produced a forged certificate to aubstantiate this anheard-of viilany. Beauchamp heard the tale, and re solved that Sharpe'a hour had now come. He repaired to Frankfort, and, unable to obtain lodgings at the hotela, passed the night with Scott, the keeper of the penitentiary. He retired early, and prepared for his murderoua deed.

She swore that she would atarve heraelf to death, die with her huaband and be buried in the aame coffin. June 5, 1826, waa a great day in Frankfort. The city waa thronged to aee the last of J. O. Beauchamp. The black and ominoua gibbet was erect ed on a hill-top near by. The drums beat mournful dirges from an early hour. At 11 o'clock Mrs. Beauchamp told the jailer to leave her a few min utes with her husband. The jailer left, but was aoon recalled by deep groans from their cell. He returned and found them both weltering in blood. They had atabbed themselves with a knife the wife had conccaled. Hia wound waa not fatal. His wifo aoon expired. Beauchamp was car ried to her bedside, as her life's blood was ebbing fast. He felt her pulse. "Farewell, child of sorrow, farewell, victim of persecution and misfortune You are now safe from the tongue of slander. For you I've lived, for you I die." He kissed her lips he was ready. The blood was trickling from his wounds. He waa too weak to ait up, so they laid him in a covered wagon and hauled him to the gallows.

Sunday afternoon while three or four hundred aight-aeera were loafing around the entrance to the State fair grounds, a loneaome-Uokiug covered wagon, drawn by a faded old horae and driven by a woman, hove in view on the Holden road. It was plain enough that some family was on the move, and it waa soon ascertained that the family consisted of only a woman and two children. The wag on stopped aa it reached the crowd, and, bending forward to look on every aide, the woman briefly en quired "Bin a fout here A boy anawered her that the State fair was about to open, and she called to the children under the cover: "Sam, you wake up, and Mary you wake up, here's the biggest crowd of folks you ever seen No one in that crowd had ever seen auch a homely woman.She was cross eyed, teeth out, nose awry and mouth big enough for two. A man in the crowd stepped forward, lookod at her face, and said: "Madam, we are offering a pre mium here for the homeliest wo man in America. Do you wish to en ter for it?"

[HORRIBLE and fa PAIN. The Experience of a .Tarred and PeatherediMan. From the Vhflais (K»v iDterprtM. W. J.

The Republican aaya: "We saw the vic tim Thuraday night on the overland train. He was in a truly pitiable condition. Coal tar or gas had been used, and used freely. This substance blisters like a mustard piaster. The cuticle will peel off of Mr. Jonea juat as if he had been boiled. Hia hair and the wound on hia head waa filled with tar. The hair stuck out in all directions, or at least a mass of tar stuck out. The aocketa of his eyes were lerel full of solid tar, which seemed to have been poured into them and allowed to cool. His whis kers seemed a large, unhappy fnaaa of tar. His face, neck, and, we are told, his entire body had a thick coating. The vigilantes kindly clothed him be fore putting him on the train. The sight might have been ludicrous, if 1t had not been agonizing. The train was nearly three houra in reaching Trnckee. The pain endured by the ?oor fellow waa excruciating.

Two weeks later he wrote to say that Hannah's sister, Ethelberta, had been sealed to him, and he asked me out to ihe wed ding." "Did you go?" "No but I sent him another cske basket. But hardly had a fortnight elapsed when Stephens telegraphed to me that as old Mrs. Watson, Han nah and Ethelbert's mother, seemed ao lonely now that tbe girls were gone, he had coucluded to annex her, alao.

Men came in boata, and tenderly lift ed the dead and dying bodies from the water, carried them np on the bank, and laid them gently down to be further cared for. Among thoae attracted to the scene was a middle aged man, who was a stage driver, whose route was between New Ca naan and South Norwaik. He saw them bringing up on the bank the bodies of those taken from tho water, and one body particularly attracted him. It waa the body of a fair young girl, and a atrange feeling aeemed to tell him that she waa not dead.

NEW HAVCN, Oct. 8.—Rev. Herbert iM'ftftfflb If' tfstfc'eT court for the murder of Mary E. Stanuard attract ed tho attention of the whole country, was again arrested, thia evening, in Madison by County Sheriff Byxbee, upon a bench warrant issued this noon by Judge Hitchcock, of the su perior court, upon an information submitted by Judge Lynde Harriaon, counsel for the state, and aigned by State's Attorney O.U. Piatt. He waa at onco brought to this city and now lies iu the county jail. This new step in what muat become one of the most celebrated casea in criminal an nals waa not a surprise. Since Mr. Ilayden'a acquittal by Justice Wilson the ca8e of tlie proaecntion has rapid jy developed, and this second arrest is the result of tbe discovery of new and moat important evidence. Two eminent experts, Prof. M. C. White, of Yale Medical College, and Prof. 8. W. Johnaon, who holda the chair of Chemistry in the Sheffield Scientific School of Yale, have been at work upou Mary Stannard's stomach, and have found In it enough araonlc to kill the whole community of Rock land where she lived. Thia, the state claims, is the quick medicine which Ilayden told Mary ho had bought in Middletown when he met her at the spring, Tuesday noon, and told her to meet him in an hour and a half by the big rock, where her body waa found. It will be remembered by those who read the evideuce that on the witness stand Ilayden testified that on that Tuesday morning in Middletown he did buy at Tyler's drug store an ounce of arsenic to kill rats with that when he got home he did not tell his wife he had bought it because she was afraid of pois ona, but put it on a beam in hia barn under the hay that he had used none of it, and that it muat be there in an unbroken package. The atate's coun sel have looked for that araenic, but cannot find it, but the chemiata have already found in Mary's stomach a maaa of fifty or alxty grains of arsen ic wholly unabsorbed, to say nothing of what was absorbed. Until Hay den, to account for hia visit to a cer tain part of Middletown, had to tea tify about buying thia araenic, the atate waa at a loss what poiaon to look for. They had decided to look for powerful abortion medicinea, but in thia aere hampered by the parsimony of the town authorities and lack of authority from the atate officers but when they knew what he had bought their courao waa clear, and Judge Harriaon aaked for delay in the jua tice's court to enable him to com plete the investigation. Failing to get it, counsel withdrew (torn that court, but not from the proaecntion of the case, and the reault ahowa their wiadom. The theory of the atate, in accordance with the aummary of their excluded evidence, ia that ilay den gave Mary a huge doae of araen ic when he met her at the big rock, having told her that it waa "quick medicine" to produce abortion that the introduction into her ayatem of auch a quantity of thia poiaon aoon put her in agony that ahe ahrieked with pain, and for the firat time see ing her deatroyer'a intention, and that he muat have given her poiaon, ahe accused him of hia treachery, and atarted for her home to tell her frienda before it should be too late that Ilayden, fearing that sho would reach her friends ana expose him,and seeing that in hia anxiety to remove her from among the living he had overahot the mark, felled her to the earth with tbe blood-atained atone found there, and then cut her throat. Laat Thursday, under authority of the atate'a attorney, the chemiata be gan their work on Mary'a stomach, which haa been in Prof. White'a poa aeaalon ever aince the body waa ex humed. They were inatructed to look for oil of aavin, oil of tanay, er got, and araenic. Almoat at the be ginning they discovered the combi nation produced by arsenic and the sulphureted hydrogen, which is the reault of decomposition, and very soon the grains of nnabsorbed arsenic were revealed. Usually such a huge dose would be thrown off the stomach immediately after being given, but in this caae it had remained. The state's attorney waa put in posaeaalon of tho facts yesterday, and when these dis eoveries were laid before Superior Court Judges Hitchcock and Culver, they at once agreed tbat a bench war rant ahould immediately he issued It waa Uaued. and the sh«rUTweat on the cara to Uuildford Mid then by carriage to Madison.

A SENSATION. Special Telegram to the later-Oceaa. WASHINGTON, Oct 8.—There pnbliahed here and in New York to day, a letter from Ben. Hill, in which he takea up the cry of fraud in a loud' er tone than haa been heard before. Hill argues that Preaident Hayea holds his office by crime, the perpe trators of which he rewarded. He says that "Andy Johnson became Preaident by crime, but that the per petratora were all hanged, and with them an innocent woman. Had John aon rewarded Booth for making him Preaident, he would have been no more guilty and deapicable than Hayea is now. Every man," say a Hill, "of the guilty gang, who haa not been satisfied with the oflice offered him haa confeaaed the frauda. Every man who haa not confeaaed the frauds has been kept satisfied with oflice." was The letter ia two columna long and CAI.R.S FOR T1IK BEMOVAI, OF PRESIDENT HAYES, and the punishment of those who made him President. He concludes as follows: "There is bnt one step between our free institutions and destruction. Tho government has become identi fied with fraud, and ia administered by tbe authors of fraud. If the peo ple shall fall to repudiate the fraud and ita authora, abettors, and reward era, then we ahall have entered on that phaae of our career when the offices and immense patronage of this richeat of conntriea will take the form of glittering prizea offered to induce the commission of crimes againat the popular will. Assassins will be made heroes and the greatest criminal will become the most enti tled to enjoy the honors and live on benefactiona of the government. Be yond that, the man who talks of the safety and purity of popular govern ment will be a lunatic." THK LETTER CAUSES CONStnXBABLK COMMENT is considered especially here, and significant from the fact that* Hill is not a stampeder, like Springer but ia regarded aa more hon eat and sincere in his convic tions than moat of the Southern Democrats, and it appears now that a sober, reaaoning man like Hill, who haa alwava been a warm SUD 1WVtflfrtWnufSiiY,'tliat there ia aome thing more than talk in the «chemc. It ia atatod that everybody believea that Hill is honeat. If he ia honest now was he honeat when he defend ed Anderaonville? Waa he honest when he oppoaed filibuatering, when he went to Preaident Hayea and con gratulated him on reatoring a gov ernment of natives to the South, when he asked the appointment of a Confederate as Marshal of Georgia, because criminals in that State would not allow a Yankee to arrest them when he recommended a Democrat as Collector of Internal Revenue, be cause illicit distillers believed the tax on whisky was a form of Yankee op pression, and would not pay it to a Republican Waa he honeat when be aaid that the Burchard resolutions declaring the decision of the electo ral commission final ahould be in doraed by the Democratic party, and when he aaid that the Pofter investi gation waa unwiae and impolitic? Saya Hill, alluding to the President's action in appointing members of the Returning Board and othera to office: "If allowed to go unpunished, it will elevate perjury into virtue, forgery into an art, and will reduce usurpa tion Into a science." Iliil ia a slow man to move, and un til thia letter appeared EVERYBODY IX WASHINGTON THAT HE WOITLD BELIEVED BE THE LAST MAN TO ENTER THE SCHEME for Impeachment. His repeated de fense and championahip of Preaident Hayea in the Senate has attracted na tional attention. Whon Conkling and Blaine and Howe attacked the Preaident for notaerving hia party, it waa Hill who eulogized him. "lie has never, up to the publication of this letter, lost an opportunity to champion President Hayea, and haa been ao ready and vehement aa to cauae the Preaident some annoyance. A member of the Cabinet once aaid to your correspondent when a con teat arose between the Preaident and Senate last winter: "The Preaident ia right but It hurta bim to have Ben Hill auatain him so eagerly." SENATOR HILL WAS ONE OF THE FEW PROMINENT DEMOCRATS WHO THO'T FAVORABLY OF KEVS' acceptance of a Cabinet position. So recently as the 9th of June, in relat ing tbe reasons and circumstances of his opposition to the filibustering movement during the counting of the electoral vote, Senator Hill said: "I don't believe President Hayes waa in any manner connected with, or re aponaible for, the frauda or irregu laritiea. On the contrary, I conaider him an honeat, pure, and upright man. If anybody attempts to inau gurate a revolution, tho ex-rebela will put it down. We will not allow it." Now Hill aaya: "Hayea ia as bad a man aa Johnaon would have been had he rewarded Booth with a aeat in bia Cabinet." Private Secretary Rogera aaid to day that thia letter ia the firat word beard from Hill of a character un complimentary of the Preaident. Hill had never haa reaaon personally, aaid Mr. Rogera, to dialike the Preai dent, and he waa aure the Preaident would be aurpriaed when he reada what aortof an opinion Hill ace ma to have of him now. Rogera aaid it was not true, as asserted in Hill's let ter, that he had never recommended any one to office, bnt the contrary waa true. Several appointments had been made at Senator Hill's solicita tion. Rogets was inclined to regard the Hill letter very seriously. Hill waa an earnest man, he said, and it waa an indication of aometbing behind him when he appeared ao suddenly with a letter like that. There seemed to be no occasion for writing it it was a forced utterance, uncalled for by any demonstration or interroga tory, but seemed to be a premedita ted and deliberate expression of ma tured opinions. A MEMBER OF THE CABINKT, who haa never regarded Senator Hill's intimacy with the President with favor, remarked that he wished the letter had toean published ia ev ery town In Ohio, Indiana, and to-day. It Wonld have been w" many thousand votae, aad it aa important effect np«a t her elections. a ,iiry- Am tuTplenaant p'^'auch LSff B**4i 1" rafbrer to ease its ztwtmii (&*)**»***+, NUMBER 27.
