A Little More than fifty year ago a loan by Tho name of Henry Thompson called it the House of or. J. Smith a resident in a retired part of England and requested a nights lodging. This request was granted and Tho stranger having taken some refreshments retired Early to bed requesting that he might be awakened at an Early hour to following morning. When the servant appointed Pecali him entered the room for that purpose he was found in his bed perfectly dead. On examining Bis body Marks of Vii nce appeared but his countenance looked extremely natural. The Story of his death soon spread among the neighbors and enquiries were made As to who he was and by what Means be came to his death. Nothing certain however was known. To had arrived on horseback Aud was seen passing throw a neighbouring Village about a hour before to reached the House where to bad come to Bis end. And Thon As to the manner of his death so Little could to discovered that the jury returned a verdict that he a died by a visitation from when this was done the stranger was burled. Days and weeks passed on and Little further was known the Public mind however was not at rest. Suspicion existed that foul Means had hastened the strangers death. Whispers to that effect were expressed and in the hearts of Many Smith was considered the guilty Man. The former character of Smith had not been Good. To had lived a Loose and irregular life involved himself in debt by his extravagance and at length being suspected of having obtained Money wrongfully he suddenly fied Frota the town. # More than ten years however had now elapsed since his return during which he had lived at i present residence apparently in Good circumstances and with an approved character. His former life however waa now remembered and suspicion was fastened upon him. At the expiration of two months a gentleman one Day stopped in the place for the purpose of making inquiries respecting the stranger who bad been found dead in his bed. A he supposed himself to be the brother of the Man. The horse and clothes of the unfortunate Man still remained and were known immediately is having belonged to his brother. The body also was taken up and though considerably changed bore a Strong resemblance to him. He now Felt authorized to ascertain if possible the manner of his death. He proceeded therefore to investigate the circa a stances a Well As he was Able. At length he made known to the magistrate of the District the information to had collected and upon the strength of this Smith was taken to jail to be tried for Tho wilful murder of Henry Thompson. The celebrated lord Mansfield was then on the Bench. He charged the grand jury to be cautious of to finding Abill against the prisoner. The evidence of his guilt if guilty might be More information might be obtained should he to acquitted he could not be molested again whatever testimony should Rise up against him. The grand jury however did find a Bill but by a majority of Only one. At length the time of trial arrived. Smith was brought into Courland placed at the bar. A great crowd thronged the room eager and anxious to see the prisoner and to hear the trial. He himself appeared firm and collected. Nothing in his manner or appearance indicated guilt and when the question was put to him by Tho clerk Quot Aro you guilty or not guilty who answered with an unfaltering Tongue and with a countenance perfectly unchanged Quot not Tho counsel for the prosecution now opened the Case. But it was apparent that he had Little expectation of proving Tho prisoner guilty. To stated to the jury that the Case was in Groat mystery. The prisoner was a Man of respectability and property. The deceased was supposed to have had about him Gold and a cools to a Largo amount hut the prisoner was not so much in want of funds As to be under a Strong temptation to commit murder. And besides if Tho prisoner had obtained the property he had effectually con a cried Rit. Not a Trace of it it amp Ouid be found. Why then was the prisoner suspected the deceased Henry Thompson was a jeweler residing in London and a Man of wealth. He had left London for the purpose of mooting a trader at Hull of whom to expected to make a cargo Purchase. The trader he did meet and after Tho do Arturo of the latter or. Thompson was known to have in his Possession jewels and Gold to a Large amount. A a a a with these in his Possession he loft Hull on Hir return to London. It was not known that he stopped until he reached Smith s and the next morning was discovered dead in his bed. To died then in Smith a House and if it could be Adown that he came to Hie death in an unnatural Way it would increase the suspicion that the prisoner was in Somo Way connected with the murder. Now then continued the counsel it will be pro Vod beyond the possibility of a doubt that the deceased died by Poison. What waa that Poison it was a recent discovery of some German chemists said to be produced from distilling the seed of Tho wild Cherry tree. It was a Poison More powerful than any other known and deprived of life so immediately As to leave no Mark of suffer1 aug no contortion of the features. But then the question when and by whom was it administered one circumstance a Small one indeed and yet upon it might bang a horrid Talo was that Tho stopper of a Small bottle of very singular description had Boon found in Tho prisoner s House. To a a stopper had Boon examined and said by medical men to have belonged to a German vial containing the kind of Poison he had described. But then was that Poison administered by South or at ins instigation who were the prisoners family ? it consisted Only of himself a mid one Man Tho Man servant Slop in an outhouse adjoining the stable and did so on the night of Thompsons death. The prisoner slept in Ono end of the House the housekeeper at the other and the deceased had been put in a room adjoining Tho House tee per a. It could to proved that about three hours after Midnight on the night of Thompsons death a Light had been seen moving about the House and that a figure holding Tho Light was seen to go from the room in which the prisoner slept to the housekeepers room the Light now disappeared for a minute when two persons were Scon but whether they went into Thompson s room the witness could not swear but shortly after they were observed to pass quite through Tho entry of Smith s room and which they entered Aud in about five minutes the tight was extinguished. Tho witness would further state that after the person had returned with Tho Light into Smith s room and before it was extinguished he had twice perceived some Durk object to intervene Between the Light and the window almost As Large As Tho surface of the window itself a and which to described by saying it appeared As if b door had been placed before the Light. Now in Smith s room there was nothing that could eco unit for this appearance Aud there was neither cupboard nor press in the room Whiteb but for the bed was entirely empty the room in which he dressed being a distance beyond it. The counsel for the prosecution Hora concluded what to bad to say. During his address Smith in no Wise appeared to to agitated or distressed and equally unmoved while to witness testified in substance w hat the open i he speech of the counsel led the court and jury to expect. Lord Mansfield How addressed the jury. He said that in his opinion the evidence was hot sufficient to condemn the prisoner and if the jury agreed with him in opinion he would discharge him. Without leaving their scats the jury agreed that the evidence was not sufficient. At this moment when they were about to Render a pc diet of acquittal the prisoner Rose and add fussed the court he said he Hod been accused of a foul Crimo and to jury had said there was Sot sufficient evidence against him. Was Hoto go out of court with suspicious resting upon him after All ? this he was unwilling to do. He was a innocent Man and if the judge would Grant him an Opportunity he would prove it. To would Call the housekeeper who would confirm a statement which he would now make. The housekeeper had not appeared la court a she had concealed herself or been concealed by Smith. This was considered a dark sign against him but he himself now offered to bring her Forward Aud stated As a reason not that he was not wilting that she could testify but knowing the excitement he was fearful that she would be crib cd to give testimony contrary to fact. Bat to was now ready to relate All the circumstances he knew she might be culled and examined. If her testimony does not confirm my Story let me be condemned. The requester the prisoner appeared reasonable and lord Mansfield contrary to his usual practice granted it. Tie prisoner went on with his statement. He a Aid to Wishod to go out of court relieved from the suspicions which were resting upon hint. As to the Poison by Means of which the stranger was said to have died he knew neither the name of it nor even the existence of it until made known by Tho counsel. He could Call god to witness the truth of what he said. Quot and then As to or. Thompson be was a perfect stranger to him. How would he know what articles of value be had ? to did not know. If he had such articles at Hull he might have left them on the Road or which was More probable have Dij poach of them. And a of to died by moans of the fatal drug he must have administered it himself. It v 1 he begged Tho jury to remember that his premises bad been rape today and mint searched and not the most trifling article that belonged to Tho deceased had been discovered in his posses ion. The stopper of a vial had been found but of this be could Only say he Hud no knowledge and bad not seen it before it was produced in court Ono fact had been proved and Only Ono. That to would explain and his housekeeper would confirm his statement a witness bad testified that some one had gone to the bedroom of his housekeeper on Tho night in question. He was ready to admit that it was himself. He had Boon subject for much of his life to sudden fits of illness be had been seized with Ono on that ocasion and had gone to procure her assistance in lighting a fire. She had returned with him to his room for that purpose to had waited fora few minutes in the passage put on her clothes. This would account for the momentary disappearance of the tight. After remaining a few minutes in this room and finding Hiu self better to had dismissed her and returning to bed from which to had not risen when to was informed of the death of his guest. Such was Tho prisoners address which produced a powerful effect. It was delivered in Firat and impressive manner and from the simple and Ai loss manner of to Man perhaps not Ono present doubted his entire innocence the housekeeper was now introduced Ami examined by Tho counsel of Tho prisoner. Sho had not heard any the statement of Smith nor a single word of the trial. Iler Story confirmed All he had said. It to this such coded Cross examination by Tho counsel for the prosecution. On circumstance. Had made a deep impression on his mind that was that while the prisoner and the housekeeper were in the room of the former smooth big ii a a door had obstructed the Light of the Candle so that the witness testified to the fact but could not see it. What was this obstruction ? there was no door nothing in the room which could account for this but the witness was positive that something like a door did for a moment Home Between the window and the Candle. This needed exp iad nation. The housekeeper was the person that could give it. Designing to probe this matter in the end to Tho Bottom but not wishing to excite her alarm he began by asking her a few unimportant question and among others where the Candle stood when Sho waa in or. Smith s room t Quot in Tho Centre of Tho room a she Well was the closet or cupboard or whatever you Call a opened once or twice White it stood there a ,. She made no reply. Quot i w ill help your recollection a said the counsel Quot after or. Smith had taken the Medicine out of the closet did Hoshal the door or did it remain opon a. Quot he shut it a a and when he replaced to Buttie in Tho Dost he Opo nod it again a Quot to . Quot Aad How. Long was it open the last to Ltd a a a about a minute Quot Well and when open would the door to exactly Between the tight and the window a a a it would. A i forgot said the counsel a a whether you said the closet Ras of Tho. Right or on the loft h and Side of Tho window a Quot on Tho loft hand Quot would Tho door of the closet make any noise in opening a. "none.�?�. A Quot Are you certain Quot. Quot i Quot Havo you Ever opened it yourself or Only soon or. Smith open it a Quot i never opened it Quot did you Ever keep the key a "never.�?�. Quot who did Quot Quot or. Smith and that moment the housekeeper chanced to cast her eyes toward or. Smith the prisoner. A cold Damp sweat stood upon his brow and his face had lost All its color to appeared a living Imago of death. Sho no sooner saw him than she shrieked and fainted. The consequence of her answers flashed across her mind. She had been so thoroughly deceived by Tho manner of the advocate a and. Tho Little importance lie had seemed to attach to her statements that she had been led on by Ono question to another till Sho Hud told him All to wanted to know. Sho was obliged to be taken from Tho court and a physician who was present was requested to attend her. At this time Tho solicitor for the prosecution answering to our states attorney left Tho court but no one knew for what purpose. Presently the physician came into court and stated that it would be impossible for the housekeeper to resume her seat in Tho Box Short of a hour or two. It was almost twelve in the Day. Lord Mansfield having directed that the jury he accommodated with a room where they could he kept by themselves adjourned the court two hours. The prisoner in the meantime was remanded to jail. It it was Between four and five of clock when the judge resumed his seat upon the Bench. The prisoner was again placed at the. Bar and the housekeeper brought in and led to the Box. The court room was crowded to excess an Ltd an awful silence pervaded to place. The Cross examining outset again addressed the housekeeper. Quot i have hut a few More questions to ask you said he Quot take heed How you answer for your life hangs upon a . Quot do you know this stopper Quot Quot i Quot to whom does it belong a Quot to or. Quot when did you last see it ? at that moment Tho solicitor entered Tho court bringing with him upon a tray a watch two Money bags a jewel Case and a bottle of the same manufacture of the stopper and having a Cork in it. Tho tray was placed on the table in sight of the prisoner and the witness and from that moment no doubt remained in the mind of any Man present of the guilt of the prisoner. A few words will bring this melancholy tale to its close. The House where the murder had been committed was Between nine and ten Miles Distant. The solicitor of soon As examination of the housekeeper had discovered Tho existence of the closet and Ite situation had set off on horseback with two sheriffs officers and after pulling Down part of Tho Wall had detected this important concealment. The search was Well rewarded. The whole of Tho property belonging to or. Thompson was found there an mounting in value to some thousand pounds and to leave no room. For doubt a bottle was discovered which the medical men instantly pronounced to contain the very identical Poison which caused the death of the unfortunate Thompson. The result was too. Obvious to need explanation. It scarcely need be added that Smith was convicted and executed and brought to his awful punishment by his own Means. Had he said nothing had he not persisted in calling amp witness to prove his innocence he might have escaped. But god had evidently left him to work out his own ruin As a just Reward of his awful crime. A a remarkable Case. 1 a correspondent of the Albany evening journal gives the particulars of a visit to mrs. Hays of Horican Warren county n. T., who is known in that Region As Quot the woman that lives without thew Omah it appear Usu a diseased condition and subject to almost exp tenuous spasms of great violence and from the description Given of the most heart rending character to witness. The writer says. A she has hed Long continued spells of raising her body a thou throwing herself Hack so As to a Trike the to prof Hor Bond upon the bed thus bringing Hor Foet Aud Faco to Noar together As to form a Hymi cd Rcd a with her body. Sometimes her head has been drawn Back so that the Limo of Hor face would to reversed and would rest upon the �pillow1. Thon she would straighten out again an d there would be the most forcible agitation of her whole Frame violent quiver a rapid spasmodic action Ofey Erncr to and muscle with strangling and Gaspin for breath like amp Parson in the last agonies of death. This strangling and gasping is in Conse Den a of suspended respiration during the Peill her head is so forcibly drawn Back. At Ono Timo she remained in that position to Silty minutes twelve minutes were the longest while i was with her. I applied a look my Glasa to Lior face As a test but could Seo no evidence of her breathing. She does not now usually remain in those Peculiar spasms longer than from three to five minutes. During a space of three weeks they estimated that she went through with those motions at least onco a minute on an average. The statement they gave me would make much More than that. Oue Day on which they kept some count there were not less than three thousand five Hundred of these spasms Quot the least particle of food Takon into the room will produce violent heaving and retching. I simply handled bread and then went near the bed and it produced heaving which was alarming. I sprinkled an impalpable and almost imperceptible powder of Sac Charm Lactus upon her Tongue and it produced violent heaving which lasted Over a the writer says he has convincing proof that this woman has neither eaten nor drank from about the 20th of february to september 11th, when he saw her and Sho has not eaten More than a healthy person would oat at a single meal since the 28th of june 1855. A a gentleman living near the town of Rockingham va., has lost five head of Young cattle and two Fine milk cows within the last few Days by permitting them to run in Tho same Field where to was feeding his hogs. The hogs ate the stalks of Corn and left them on the ground after chewing. These were taken up by the cattle eaten swallowed and not being digestible produced an itching All Over.

No complaint 1ms been Mora frequently repeated in All Ages than that of the neglect of Merit associated with poverty and the difficulty with which valuable or pleasing in Alitia a Force themselves into View when they Are obscured by Indi Gunco. It has been Long observed that native Beauty has Little Power to Charm without the ornaments which Fortune bestows and that to want the favor of others is often sufficient to hinder us from obtaining it. Every Day discovers that Mankind Are not yet convince def their error or that their conviction is without Power to influence their conduct a for poverty still continues to produce contempt and still obstructs the claims of Kindred and of Cirtno. The Eye of wealth is elevated towards higher stations and Seldom descends to examine the actions of those who Are placed below the level of its no a Tice and who in Distant regions and lower situations Aro struggling with distress or toiling for bread. Among the Lulitu Udics overwhelmed with insuperable calamity it is common to find those who a very Little assistance would Benabio to sup. Port themselves with do con by and who yet cannot obtain from near relations what they see hourly lavished in ostentation luxury or Frollo. But there Are neural reason Why poverty docs not to silly conciliate affection. He that has we a con fined from his infancy to the conversation of the lowest classes of Mankind must Rie Dossary want those accomplishments which Are the usual Means of attracting favor and though truth fortitude and probity give an indisputable right to reverence and kindness they will not be distinguished by common eyes unites they Are brightened by ele Gano o of miners but Are Oast aside like Nipol shod gems of which none but the artist knows the till their Asperities Are smoothed and their incr stations rubbed away. Butter. Will Salt press Rve butter ? no that question is easily answered. Salt is added to butter for reasons Ono is to assist in its preservation the Dairy woman vainly thinking that Salt will keep the butter Sweet. Another set Odd Salt with dishonest motives with the idea that All the Salt put in the butter is sold at Tho full Price the butter brings it is a great mistake. Every Pound of Salt put in Hatter Over what is required to give it a flavor instead of bringing a Cash return to Tho butter maker proves a positive loss of several events a Pound because it reduces the value of every Pound of butter so Over salted frequently of much As three events a Pound. Butter is not preserved by Salt. That is positive. It will keep just As Sweet As Olive Oil without Salt if no other substance is incorporated with it. It is the Case in milk that spoils the butter and unless free from that no Art can keep it Sweet. Butter should be charged at 65�, and immediately afterwards reduced to 40�, and the less it is touched by human hands the better. It must be worked Cool either with or without washing As that is a mooted question until absolutely free from but ter milk or particles of sour curd and then just enough and not More Salt added to suit the taste of the consumer. Tho Salt must to pure and one ounce to ten ., of butter will be sufficient. Then pock Tho butter solidly in any cask of Sweet Wood or Stone pot so As the air is a excluded Tho butter Rill remain Sweet. If it could be kept perfectly excluded the period that it would keep Sweet forever. Your question is ant swered. Salt will not press Rve butter. Experiment in fattening figs.
