LEFROY B EXEOUTION-
A Bnvtlncym-Liho Hnnnlnc With
Mnnvook'ii Lntont Innirovo-
montn.
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

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. Th
funeral * watt splendid and veiled in
thick cloud of mnoko. The pee
blessed the memory of the deceased
and the country still rings with hii
fame.

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.
