The history of this case may be stated brie fly about as follows: September 12, last ¥frL0n’ an o!d citizen, was at ork in his field a short distance from Charleston, Lee county, Mrs. Josephine Marion, his wife. and their little girl, went out about nine o’clock in the morning to take him a lunch. This lunch consisted of two tomato pies cut in pieces at the house by Mrs. Marion’s mother, the pieces being laid in disconnectedly upon a plate. It. was in evidence that on her way to Hie field, • Its. Marion ate of this pie and that when Marion ate his lunch, the little girl also partook. About an hour afterwards Marion was taken with convul-tions and was discovered in this condition by Anton Ross who was working in a neighboring field. To him Marion said he had never had such a sickness before and that he had eaten a piece of pie which was very bitter. Mrs. Marion was sent for and answered the summoned. On being told by Ross that he thought Marion had cramps or something of the kind, she returned to the house about a mile away for whisky which she claimed Marion always used for cramps from which he sometimes suffered. Bring the whisky she returned homeward for a wagon and blanket for the purpose of removing her husband. The stomach and pieces of the heart and liver were analyzed by Dr. Walter S. Haines who testified that lie found strychnine in marked quantities— as much as two and one-half ounces— one-half ounce being sufficient to produce death. It is very bitter and produces convictions. i here was some testimony introduced at the examining trial before Squire Downey, at Charleston, November ll, to show that an Intimacy existed between Mrs. Marion, aged thirty-six, and Joseph Bean, the other prisoner, twenty-three, but nothing of a positive criminal nature was proven. Mrs. Marion is about thirty years younger than:! her husband, they were cousins, natives of Alsace, though the husband came to this country many year* ago and wa' among the old settlers of Lee county. Mrs. Marion ha-two children, the eldest being the Hub* girl who accompanied her mother to the field with the lunch and is aged about thirteen. Charleston is about twelve miles back from the Mississippi river from F’t. Madison, and there D much interest there in the trial. The people of that neighborhood were considerably excited aT one time and it was claimed that there was danger of mob violence At the examining trial, while much feeling and Interest was shown and an almost unanimous opinion expressed that a crime had been committed and that the right parties were in the clutches of the law, the citizens generally held that no violence would be resorted to, but the law should take its course. The parties were held and their trial at this term of the court will have the closest attention, especially in Charleston neighborhood. A murder trial in Iowa always attracts attention. and so it does everywhere when a woman is one of the prisoners, charged with the heinous crime of murdering her own husband.

Oswego, N. Y., Dec. I.—Dr. Mary Walker lies dying at her farm near Bunker Hill, five miles west of this city. Her condition was not considered dangerous until a few days ago, when a change took place, and lier physicians have no hope of her recovery. The trouble is said to be heart failure. Dr. Mary Walker adopted male attire first for the sake of convenience when she was acting as nurse in the field hospital service of the United States army during the war, and found it possessed of so many advantages over the ordinary dress of women that she decided never to resume the latter. This rule she adhered to for more than twenty-five years, although it entailed upon her a notoriety that must have been exceedingly distasteful. and several times led to her arrest. For some time she had been regarded as a mild sort of a crank and a few months ago became a hopeless invalid in consequence, as she represented, of the hardships she endured In the field hospital service.

Who asked McCarty to travel to Dublin and ®av he would be able to give information which would throw a different complexion on hiddeu events? Where was S-xujd at this same meeting? Where were you all? Why did you encourage me to ma'n-tain the leader-hip in the face of the world if you were not going to stand by me? Why did my officers encourage me to take my position on the bridge if they were going to aet as traitors and hand me ov,*r to another commander in chief? I did not a-k them for the certificate of character given at the Dublin meeting. Our posh tion is awkward, but tile w’hole blame for tile creation of this position does not rest with me. A leader-killer, Barry. ba® b°en put up to stab me. a® he stabbed that old lion. Isaac Butt, In the days gone by. What is now to be said about the request for my temporary retirement? Sexton, at a recent meeting h**re, told me I cou'd resume the leauership and that the leaders were with me. Ten minutes afterwards he astonished rn * by 'aying he believed I would reject the leadership.” Referring to the Hawarden proposals.I’arnell and Gladstone told him none of them were final. “FWr me,” said Parnell, “it wa*a question of drafting a bill. It wa® a que®tion of weak judgment on the part of an English politician. It wa® a question of dealing with a garrilous old gentleman who monopolized the conversation and with whom as everybody who knows him know®, it is difficult to get in a word edgeways. Before you vote for my deposition be sure you are getting value for it. On Saturday we all agreed we would not have this Gladstone bill. Not amati here has said a word in favor of it. Are you sure you will be able to get anything better. If Healy or McCarthy or Saxton sees their way clear to get anything better, for God’s sake let them say it. I won't stand in their way. On Saturday I made this proposition to M* -earthy:    let Gladstone, Harcourt and Morley give them letters declaring that in the event of a return of the libera'® to power, a home rub* bid will be proposed by which th** control of the constabulary will be vested in the Irish executive who will be responsible to an Iri®h parliament, employed to settle the land que®-tion. McCarthy went to Gladstone v. rh these proposals, with my assurance that the®e concessions made, I would re:ire from public life. Gladstone lias replied that be will hold no communication with me as leader of the party.” McCarthy (interrupting)—“No, no " Parnell—He is perfectly welcome. The same propositions were placed before Harcourt, who replies that under no circumstances will he give any promi®e whatever, now or hereafter, to any Irish party. Remember, Harcourt will be your leader when Gladstone dies. Condon—Not our leader. Parnell—It will not be Morley. You will not deny that this great man, Harcourt, whose chain we are going to put on your necks, has the reversion of liberal leadership. This same man has declared that his limits to horn* rule are in Chamberlain's scheme of local government. If Harcourt ever comes into power he will give you local government with plenty of coercion. I know wha: Harcourt will do and what Gladstone and Morley will do. If I ain to leave you to-night I should like to leave you in security. It is not an unfair thing for me to ask to see you within sight of the promised land or that I should come with you, having come so far, until you ar** absolutely sure of Ireland and I Yan go no further. An enthusiastic outburst of cheering followed Parnell’s remarks. McCarthy followed. Ile told how he went to Gladstone Saturday and that Gladstone told him be regretted the disorganization of the Irish party, but could not regard him as representing the party and therefore could not treat with him. He would offer no suggestion, nor would he sign any document or give any message to be conveyed to Parnell. He informed McCarthy that he could not g’ve any document with any certainty that it might not be printed by some of those concerned. Harcourt told him in view of the manifesto he would not give anybody assurances which were to be brought to the notice cf Parnell. As to the general question of Parnell’s retir ing McCarthy said Parnell s leading error had been his keeping private until now the Hawarden conversation. Parnell—I am perfectly willing to admit the blame, but I am glad that I have told now before the full mischief had been done. A motion for the retirement of Parnell was made by John Barry, who aided the late Isaac Butt in founding home rule confederation of Great Britain in 1872. Joseph Nolan submitted an amend- Fi*fii.ll Interviewed. London, Dec. I.—A brief interview wa® had with Parnell this ev**nii g regarding the Gladstone letter.

[Correspondence of Tne Hawk-Eye.) Galveston, Texas. Nov. 29.—Are you Int* rested sufficiently in deep wat©r af the Gulf to bear with a description of this city and a few words about the great steamers and sailing velsels which ply between this port and all important frontier cities upon the coasts of Europe, South aud Central America Mexico and our own country. The wharves would rei in*! you very little of those which irraduaily decline to the water’* edge along the Mississippi river. Here you find docks, better described in illustrations than word* can tell. These docks extend out into the water and the monster vessel* come up against the wharves as closely a® the ordinary Burlington beau walks to his sweetheart. At the docks to-day there are over two miles of space, every i©ch of which is occupied by steamer®, sailing ve*'**ls, tug®, men-of-war, cruisers, cutters, os -tor boats, yacht* and smaller craft. The flag® of many nations float to th© breeze with th© English In the lead. It is at this point that tim cotton is shipped to England and th© northern port.® of our own country. A trip by water from Galveston to New York occupies only ®ix or seven days, and tirst-ela-' freight (dry goods) is only eighty cen»s per hundred pounds. Rates have been down to fifteen cent®, and the wholesalers get their goods through now at an average of tif y cent*. In the handling of the cotton you won id be re-niinded of your boyhood days. You remember during those old golden days the loud voices of the mate® on the Mississippi ri.er packets; they were v'hite men, here you find a negro boss, and those I have listened to ar© ©orker*. ‘ git long dar,” “he&v up. ’ “mind your biz-ne®s,” and similar expressions are thrown out ped mell arid the “niggers" move.
