THE~ NEWS ANDl h1ltALD Omeie,
ASubjoct that has Engagefgl the Atten
Lion of Sttttesnen and Philanthropists t
for many years past.
In olden times punishment was in- t
flicted on the offender, corresponding
to the amount of pain or suffering l
which he had inflicted on others. r
Hence arose the retiliatory principle i
of punishment, which demanded an 1
eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, t
etc. But now it is considered a a
vildictive proceeding, contrary to li
the spirit of the age, and that if a 1
person is to be deprived of life, it 1
should be done in the manner which 11
will cause the least pain.
Blackstono has enumerated one
hundred and sixty ofl'ences for which,
only a century hack, the law pro- i
vided the pluishmnent of death. b
Four-fifths of these excluded the 1
"bhelefit of clergy," as it was a
called. It no longer exists, and the
death pulnishmecnt in lngland, as
with us, is iiow narrowed down almost I
to the two crimes of murder and r
treasoi,. S
Crucifixion was a very ancient "
punishment. The Syrians, Jews, 1)
yptians, and especially the 1r
Carthaginians, used it. But in no c I
part of the ancient world was this I
punishment so generally resorted to S
as in the Roman empire, where it It
was regarded as the most infamous d
of deaths. By the RIoman law tho
culprit was scourged l previously to ti
theo crueilixion, either in the prieto - .
rmm or on the way to the place of lk
execution. i his arrival there he ti
was stripped of his garmnts, and
ther either nailed or tied by the n
hinds and feet to the cross, or, as o
sometimes happened, only fastened o
to it 1) ropen;. In order to hasten n
death, it wts the practice to break a:
the legs or to pierce the body of the tq
suTferer with a spear. By the Jew- c
ish1 law, it was ordained that the m
culprit should be removed from the c
croI on the day Of his exention : ti
but the Roumuans fr2queutn y allowed p
it to hang until it drop Ted )iece- 1
ieal to the ground. ' a
Among flittnhie -els capital punish- n
pulent was iflicteud by regular killing, e
or, lsj 1i ihd e'.mow. of Soc-.atLes, by or- e1
deling t''it the victim should drink m
a bowl eif hcmiilo'ck, which is poison- I
oius. The ancient braelit e'S stoned c
their culprits to death, laid in Rome r
I cri eiin iiinals were destroyed by
throwing them from the Tarpoian ni
rock. u
In England during the Middle s
Ages death was'tho ordinary punish- h
int for all felonies ; but if the cul - c
prit could read le escaped with life v
oi a first conviction. In the British s
army and navy, within the present t
centuiry. soldiers and sailors have n
been literally flogged to death with (
a cat-o-nine-tails. Sometimes 1,000 1
lashes were ordered. The infliction, .A
though muich mitigated, is still con- t
tinned in the British military and i
naval service. In the American it v
has been humanely abolished within t
the last thirty years. n
During the first French rev'olu
tion whant were facetiously called v
"republican marriages" (where two y
persons of different sexes, bound (
together by strong cords, waqro cast a
into the river Rhono at Lyons and d
left to drown) were outrages upon t:
humanity. ii
Formerly, in Sc->tland, culprits' 'I
heads were chtoppled off by the p
maiden. It was an old contrivance V
revived, having been used ini Porsia V
in early times. In Italy its namo I
was mnannaja, and culpr'it-nobles had d
hie priviloge of being decapitated by V
it, and a'similar instr'umient had beon'
previously used in Germany. In C
France, in 1632, a 'Due. (d Montmno- di
ronci had been executed by a similar 11
instirument at Toulouse, and a con- i
tury b~ack the D~utch emplloyed it ini H
executions. There fore, in Oedober, h:
1700, when Joseph Ignaco Guillotin, h'
a physician of Paris, p~roposod to 1'
the national assembly thore the use
of the beheading maitrument wvhich t
prpetuates his namp, hie only imn-- '.J
proveoa on an old ide'a. The guiillo
tine consists of two upright pieces A
of wood1 fixed iui a horizontal frame ; ni
a sharp blade of steel moves uip and ai
down byv means of a pulley in V
grooyes mn tihe two upr'ghts ; the a
edge is oblique instead of horizontal.
The criminal is laid on his face, his a
neck immediately under the blade,
wvhich so vors it a4 a' blow from his C
body, Louis XVI. perished by it. V
Giuillotinoe was imphrisoned (luring the o
Reign of Terror, but was released at

Throughout Europe, )vith tho
xcep)tion of Spain, hfanging and bo;
eading are the only methods of

,)unishnlClt called "pressing to

o confess hia4 guilt h was mado to
lie by the pejine forte et dure. In
ho reign of Elizabeth Tudor, ono
irs. Margaret Middleton, wife of a
ich citizen of York, accused of liar
oring a schoolmaster, refused to
lead guilty, because she considorod
[hlt such a plea would b o equivalent
c a falsohgod. She was divested of
11 her clothes and robed in a long
non habit. She lay down on the
round, her face covored with a
andkerchief. Then a door was
laced upon her, and her extended
ands were bound to two posts, hor
)et. being secured to two others.
sharp stono was placed under her
ick. Then upon the door wore
oal)ed iron weights, which broko
or ribs, while the stone under her
atck broko her spine. The poor
'oman uttered only one exclamation
a was soon dead. Traitors wore
sua1,lly boeoinded or put to tho rack,
ut thoso of a lower class wore
banged, drawn and qiqartored,"
terally cut in pikges while life yst
Tmained in the body. It need
marcely bo mentioned that for
h1ergsj," a great many porsons havo

l )uliishment is inflicted by the
!rtrotte, wijch is a species of vio,
if t strangulation, which is instaii
mous and is sai( to be painless.
The piuishnet by the ''knout,
hieh formerly was general through
at Russia for almost every variety
f crime, and which barbarously
murdored iany porsons by a slow
ad prolonged and most horiiblo
)rture, was abolished by the present
rinr, Alexander II. The culprit
'as bound to two stakes, and re
eived on his baro back the specis
ed number of lashes from a whip of
laited thongs iutorwovon with wire.
'rom one hundred to two hundred
nid twenty lashes Wore the 'highest
umber inflicted, and were consid
red equivalent to a sontence of
oath. If the criminal survived he
'as banished for life to Siberia.
'ormerly, the nose was slit, the oars
at off and the letter V (for var,
oguc) branded on 'the forphead.
In China, simple beheading is the
ode of capital punishment, and the
nfortunato victim is usually half
tarved beforo his execution, besides
ging; exposed in view of the ivliolo
ommunity, who taunt him with the
ilest and merit abusivo ' epithets,
omuetines alternated by blows aind
