London St < N'ov. 30. The oxccution of Lefroy , which took place ycstonlny morning inside Lowos .lull , was curried out ( limply , nunctti- nlly and effectually. The Luwos gftl- lows is BO artnngoil that Tvlion the ex ecution talie.i pluco thu fltibjcct drops out of si ht below the surfuct ) of the earth. The drop in "llnsli" with the sides nnd bnso , of cloven or twelve fiet in depth. Above thu drop ia n cnua-bcnm supported by two uprights from which ia suspended the ropo. On moving n lover , which is connected with holts BnaUining the drop , the l.Uter parts iu the center , either side hunuing on itu hingeA , and the night of n criminal hunting lifeless in thu nir is thus avoided. Shortly before the execution took plnco there were not a dozen spectators , exclusive ) of policumon , outaiilo the jail , When it was over , and thoHo whoso duty it was io ivitnena it loft the priaon , they found that a entail knot of guzora hud increased , porhnpn to thu number of fifty or ixtjf , but cerlniuly not. to moro than lliAt llguro. At about 8:1)0 : ) the reporters to the number of about tifteon who , with the exception of the jail olh'cials , wuro the only wit nesses of the execution were admit ted to the jail. At 8:40 : thu first note of thu prison bell was eoundud , nnd its knoll continued at regular inter vals until everything was over. At 8:55 : n wnidur lunmumod the reportera , who followed him through two court yards , in which , as the paved _ path way indicated , thu convicts are iu the habit of taking their daily exorciso. In the third and final one was erected the gallows. Juat inside thu door wuy stood Marwood with his pinioning apparatus in hid baud. Ho wna HUIH- monud away , nnd a pan so of ROUIO few niomeutn ensued , ut the und of which the voice of the chaplain wna hoard , and thoeo standing iu thu court yard bored their heads and turned towards a further door , whence the process ! * ! ! was issuing. Thu chaplain robed in hm urplico , camu first , pro- nouucoa in a loud voice , though with evident nigus of umotion , thu appoint ed Borvicu. The contra ! and conHpio- uous object of that little band that slowly defiled towards the platform where he was to inuot his fatu wus , of course , Lefroyhimsolf. Howasdn-Hsod in a brown tweed suitIIo had no covering to his head and no collar round his neck. The aray woolot shirt he wore was open and turnui back at the edges in front , showing hit ) lonu , thick neck. His facp , which waa pale enough during his trial , now ahowod not a vestige of color. His eyes were turned upward toward the BUM , which waa ( mining full in his face and its glare imparted an unusual brilliancy to thorn. Arriving at the drop he allowed himself quietly to bo placed thereon and pinioned as to his legs. Marwood waa scarcely a minute about his task ; and while thu chaplain was yet repeating the words of the service ho had gouo to thu Hide , pulled a lever and Lefroy had disappeared from sicht. That death was inntanta ncous there can bo no doubt , for than was no evidence of any subsequent struagling. The drop was at least eight feet , and in all probability the neck was at once broken. The whole business of the execution occupioil about throe minutes. The coroner' ; jury then viewed the body , with re gard to which there is nothing to bt said , but that thu face wore a ctilu appearance and that there was a nligli abrasion of skin on the neck. The Im&ou Gazette , 1666 Portland ( Orison ) Polaris. Wo have before us a copy of Th London Gazette , dated September 10. 1C > ( JC. It ia ft four-pago paper twc columns on each , and the pages an ulovun by Hoyon and u half inches about the flizo of an old-fuahione window-puuc. It is a queer specimen of literary workj nearly the whole pa per is taken up in a description of the. ureat fire iu London. It HUggesta a compamon of the condition of thing ! then and now. When this fire oc curred the account of it was thro montliH or more reaching the Unite States. When the great fire of Chi cage occurred , bulletins announce ita progress every fe\vhourniii Europe Wo givu Hpcciiuens from this quco old relic verbatim : The ordinary conrac of thin r , r having been interrupted by a HIU ! un j Imnentablo accident of Fire latuly hapnod in the wily of London ; it had ( boon thought lit for satisfying the iiiinda of xo niiuiy of Ilia Majosticfl good SubjectH who must needo bo con cerned for thu ISHHO of BO great an ac cident , to giro this short , but true Account of it. On the second instant , at onu of the clock in ii > fie Morning , there hapned to break out , a Bad in deplorable - blo Fire in Pudding-lano near Now Fiahstreot , which fulling out at that hour of that night , und in a quarter of the Town HO closely built with wooden pitched houses spread itself tih self HO far before day , and with auch distraction to the inhabitant and Neighbors , that care was not titkon for the timely preventing the fuithor diffusion ot it , by pulling ' down IIOUSUH , aa ought to have been ; BO that this lamentable Kiro in a abort tiiao bccamu too big to bo mastered rty any Eng nen or working near it. it full out most unhappily too , That Itu violent Easterly wind fomented it , und * kept it burning all that day , and thu night following spreading iUelf up to Graco-church-dtrcot and downwards from Cunnon-streiit to the Waterside , as far aa the Three Crantw in the Vintroy. * * * * What a confusion 1 the Lord Mayor of the city canio with hia ollicora , & London HO famous for ita wimlom can find neither hands nor brains to pre vent it utter riun. London intiHt fall to the ground in ashes & who can prevail t it ? The fire raged limitary , it burnt dreadfully ; by the fierce Easterly wind it apruad quickly in all directions , overturning all HO furiously thiil the whole city is brought into lya devolution , Tlmt night most ot the citizens had taken their hiRt nloup ; 10A when they went to sloop they little thought that when their cam were un locked that auch an enemy had in vaded their City , & und that they , should co him with auch fury break through their doom , & outer their roomii with such threatening counte nance , It cornraeuced on the Lord's day morning : never was there tlio like nabbath in 1/indon ; ninny churches were iu llnmcs that dnyj Oed aoomed to como down nnd proivch himself in them , nn ho did iu Slimi when the mount burnt with fire ) ouch warm preaching those churches Jiever hud before and in other churches tniniatt'M lind Drenched their farewell aormons.

A GREAT SMOKER. A HollnuilorVhoBo Fnnornl Wn * Shronilod in Sraoho- Itay Ion Journal. The Hollanders ore more given to smoking than wny Northern people-- "dreaming with the eyes open. " The boatnnmof the Treschkrit , the aqun tic dilligcitco of llolliuid , inonBuri' distance by smoke ; from one plnco to iiQotlter , not so many miles , but HO many pipiw. Entering the house ytuir host otlors you a cignr tilling , nnother , often insittting upon leaving yourcigur case. Sumo go to aloep with n pipe in their mouth , relight it on wakening in the night , and in the morning before nteppitig out of bed. Diderot Buys : "A dutchrmu is a living aluuibic. " The cigar IB not the companion of in doleuce , but the stimulant und aid to labor. Smoke is called their eucotid breath , and the cigar the nixth finger of the haud. A Frenchman tolls the story of a rich gentleman of Hotter dam , Van Klaea , nurnamod Father Grcatpipo , being old , fut and a smoker. Aa a merchant iu India ho had amassed u fortune. On his return hn built u palooo near Rotterdam , in which ho arra ged , aa in a museum , all the models of pipes from all countries trios , and of every time. Thii was open to strangers , to whom , after his display of smoking erudition , ho gave a catalogue of the museum , bound it : velvet , vvitli pockets of cigars and to bacco. Mynheer Van Klncs smoked ICO grammes of tobacco per day , ant" died at 98. From 18 years of ngo ho smoked J,3UU kilogrammes making an unin'orruptod black line of tobacco of twenty French leagues in longtl When but a few days remained to complete his 98th year , ho suddenly felt bis end approaching und sent foi his notary , a smoker of great merit und said , "My good notary , till my pipe and your own : I nm about t < die. " When both pipes were lighted Van Kanea dictated his will , celebrated ted over Holland. Aftcrxho disposal of the bulk of his property to relations , frienda nnd hos pituls , ho dictated the following ar tide : ' I desire that nil the smokers it the country shall bit invited to my funeral , by all possible means , news papers , private letters , circulars nnd advertisements ) . Every smoker who shall accept the invitation shall re ceive a gift of ton pounds of tobacco and two pipes , upon which shall be engraved my name , my arms and the date of niy death. The poor of the district who shall follow my body to the grave shall receive , each man every year , on the anniversary of my death , n large parcel of tobacco. To ull thosn who shall bo present ut tin funeral ceremonies , I make the con dition , if they wish to benefit by mj will , that they ehall emoko uninter ruptedly during the ceremonies. M. body shall be enclosed in n case lined inside with the waod of my llavann cigar boxes. At the bottom of the case shall.be deposited u box of French tobacco , so called caparal , and a par eel of our own Dutch tobacco. At my side shall bo laid my favorite pipe am a box of matches , because no on knovra what may happen. When tb collin is deposited in the vault , every person shall pass by nnd cast upon i the ashi'B of his pipe. " The will was carried out.

Senator Wiiidinn of Minnenotn standd credited with the authorship pud introduction of u bill , on the liith inst , , for the construction of the north branch of the Union Pacific Hailroad , and to aid thu sasio by a grant of land eual ] to the grant of July , 1801 , to the Union I'ucifio main line 12,800 acres per inilo. The lan guage of the dispatch is : "Under the condition * ! of tdo original Union 1'a- cific Act of 'I8M ( , except that the company is to reeoivu no subsidy in bonds , " That means n hind subsidy of 112,800 acres per mile of road ; iuul the reid so proponed to be assisted will be 1000 miles long , This is the first bill for hind subsidy that has been introduced in congress for aover- al years. It iu nin ular that it should come Irom u senator who has within the year been talking nnd writing against the monopoly , Tlioro are now not leas than 150,000,000 , acrcu of land locked uj > in railway rates , so ' that the settlors' desiring homes will have to pay from three to aix times as much for land nn the ( iovorinneiil pro-eruption price. There i no oilier evil that curses the country ni much ns this one of railway hnd grants. If the government mimt usist corpora * lions to build railways , it is far bet ter to do it by loans of bonds nr gimr- ants of interest than by gr.mt.i of land. This is now settled public opin ion , nnd any senator or congressman who disregards it by urging tlio pan- sage of further grants , ought to bo os- trnciced from the public service. WAR'S NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS 11M. . O.UAII. ctrolt Kroo Pttv. H was the night before Christmas 1HG4. Our brigade had boon in camp along tint Kapidiin for n fort night , nnil everybody thought tin- campaign had cloied. Winter quur- turn had been oruotod , cold wwithur had come , and these who fought and marched the long mimmor through congratulated themsolvcH on it ae.ifton of quiet and roat. Tlio picki't-linon were about half a milo u part , uiul the confederates beyond - yond were Mio Bottling down in win ter quartera. It wan iStonowall thick- son's old brigade in front of UB , hack- oil by that of Walkor.tlankod by other confederate troops. For a weolc there had boon no tiring by the pickets. War's cold-blooded nntrdora had boon replaced by u spirit of peace , and the men who had felt the tiger a tliitat for blood now aikcd nothing more than rent undisturbed. Such wan the situation , wlum , ju t AS the gloom of that night before Ohriftttmui soltlcd down ovorfiiund nnd foi > , my company was tmlerit out under arms. It ufturwardH ap peared that information had been re- coivml to the ntfoct that Gonn. Luo und and Johnston were at u farm house just within the confederate line ! , und our tninruon was to capture thorn. Therefore , in the gloom of the winter - tor evening , with dark banks of clouds racing across the honvens , and snow squalls slcnrrying down upon us nt intervals torvals , wo mounted und set oil'at i trot for u ford aovon or eight miles nburo the camp. The lower one wo know to bo heavily guarded ; the up per ono wo hoped would bo open. An ao it wan. The cold , swift river , already covered with Hunting ice , waa guard enough , the confederated thought. The watur won breast high to the poor norsra , nnd most of them sniyurod like a man with the ague as they reached the opposite shore , II was only mercy to them to indulge in an hour'a gallop. Afar elf wo saw the light of a f. nn house not one light , but oveiy win dow towards ua wits illuminated , proving that even in the tdmdow of war'n ghastly horrors some ono WIIH remembering Christmas would coii'o with the morrow. That house was our objective point. The highway led straight jmat the door , and a sud den dash must surprise all who had git bored there. I know what our mon were think ing of us they formed in a column a Quarter of a milo away for the charge. Ivory fathur'a' thoughta wont back homo to wife and children and Santa Claus and little stockings hanging up for presents , and I holiayo every man truly hoped that wo might not tire u gun or slied H , drop of blood on this night which belonged to peace instead of war. As the word was given wo swept forward at a canter , nnd in three min- utcH wo had ( encircled the house. I was ono of the dozen troopers ordered to dismount and daah in to secure the priaonurH , und I was the second in side. This was the Bight wo saw aa wo poured into the big room : A gray-haired grandfather , a Holdier with bin arm in a sling , u wife und mother , a half-grown daughter and three or four mon nnd women who must have been neighbors. There was un open Uiblo on tlio grandfather's lap , three little stockings hung beside the chimney , and in the room beyond wan the table at which ull were about to ait down as wo onterod. It noomod a full minute before anyone - ono moved. Wo had surprised them , and in turn had been surprised. Our information had been fatso , and wo made a ride of a dozen inilcn to burst in on a econo of peace. Wo were still standing there , speechless with ur- priso , when there came u sudden pm > ! pop ! pop ! of musketry , followed by shouts , order , and the clash of Htoel. I hud no eoonor mounted my horao than I saw wo were surrounded by in fantry. Wo charged straight at , the mass in the road before ua , but were driven back. Thim wo charged up the road and ran upon a battery ol three pieces. AH wo were forced back the light whirled round anil round the larm-hoiiHo. Thcro were a do/en or so to onoand though wo charg ed again nnd again , ten minutes put an end to the tight. Of the oitjhty-fw men who had left camp ten had brok en through , fourton ! tvoro prisoners , nnd the remainder lay dead on tin trampled anew , along with u score ol confederates. Thu stark corpses of mon - the ago- 7-cd groans of wounded horses the snow melting with the warm strouma of blood that was war's chances. I looked into the houses through a shattered window , Tlio grundfuthr lay fttark and stiff on the floor , his bloott staining the Bible as it out. Tlio grandmother was lying ul bin feet , her Hiiow-whito hair matted with blood , her eyen closing in doatli aa I looked upon her. Tlio soldier and his wife were unhurt , but they had better be [ dead. The three litth stockings hung aa before , but one by one tliey brought out the three curly- who had hung them there , am they were three corpses ! Kullota mount for enemies had nought oul thc.so little innocents as they slept am dreamed of Heaven , and men wh < had gu/.cd upon a thousand doid un moved nlied tears as tlio little bodies were laid on the floor just under thi stockingn Simla Claim was to fill am bring joy to their hearts. It was midnight now. Christnnm had dawn ed upon white hairs stained with blood childish hearts stilled by murder der- men groaning in unguiBh worn- en with breaking hearts -dod's ' mantle - tlo of purity blotched and drabbled and crimsoned , until the winter moon crept behind the darker clonih to hide tlio spot witli shadows.
