NUMBER XIII. MOUNTAINS AND STREAMS. There is perhaps no County in the Statu which is so well watered ns Columbia. This is doubtless owing to tho hills which diver sify its surface, and which, shedding their waters in ull directions, leave no part of the County arid or unfertile. It is impossible to designate, even by name, the multitude of ruu9 and brooks which, through tho dry summer season, feed from their mountain springs the larger streams which pour their waters into tho beautiful Susquehanna, which traverses the County for a distance of nearly twenty miles, entering it at the lino of the liorough of llervviclc, and leaving it at the Montour County line. Hounding upon it on the north-west side are Berwick, Uriar creek, Centre, Scott, Bloom, Montour ; and on the south-ea9t Milllin, Main, Catavvissa and Franklin. Tho river is crossed at Ber wick by a bridge, at Milllinvillo by u ropo furry, at Stonytown, in Centre township, by another ropo ferry, with n third at Espy, in Scott township, with a fourth opposite Bloomsburg, by a bridge at Catawissa, and with a rope ferry near tho mouth of Roaring creek. Catawissa creek rises in Schuylkill county and runs through the entire length of the townships of Beaver, Main and Catawissa, and empties into the North Branch Susque hanna at the point- whero the townships of Catawissa and Franklin strike the river. Its largest feeder is Scotch run, which, ris ing in tho township of Beaver, drains tho Scotch Valley, and after passing the whole length of tho township, enters tho Catawissa in Main township. Roaring creek rises in tho township of Roaringcreek, thence through Locust into Catawissa, thence back into Locust, tlieneo through Franklin, striking tho line between Franklin and Mayberry in Montour County, and becoming the boundary lino to where it empties into tho Susquehanna, about three miles below tho Catawissa. Tho south branch of Roaring creek rises in Conynghani township, running its entiro length, and at its confines btriking Northumberland Coun ty, becomes tho boundary line between Lo cust township in Columbia County and Northumberland, and thence turning north into Franklin, empties into Roaring creel' about six miles abovo its mouth. Hemlock creek rises in Madison township, runs through Hemlock nnd becomes tho boundary lino between Montour nnd Hem lock for a short distance, and empties into Big Fishingcreek about ono mile nbovo its mouth, and about ono mile from tho town of Bloomsburg.

Colo's creek rises in Sugarloaf township, in Columbia county, and runs south, enter ing Fishingcreek at Allnas Cole's mill, Colcscreok post-office. Green creek rises in Jackson township, and runs south, meeting tho Fishingcreek near Ornngcvillc. It was one of tho Colum bia county coal oil locations, Tin Catawissa mountains givo character to ah that part of tho County lying east of tho river. Between Bloomsburg nnd Cata wissa tho river, which has been running a south-west course, suddenly turns south nnd breaks through tho mountain range instead of passing down the valley. Some tcrriblo convulsion must havo caused tho chasm through which the winding Susquehanna pours its floods, and the scenery along "Tho Rocks" is beautiful and picturesque. The hill gradually breaks down as it stretches into Montour county, and is finally lost in the gentle depression. But on tho cast side of the river, casting olT a spur hero and there, it breaks the wholo fiico of the Coun ty into great irregularities. Between Cata wissa and Centralia two distinct ranges of mountains bar the way, and upon tho far ther sldo of the second we strike tho coal measures of the Schuylkill region, and enter upon a country differing materially from all other parts of the County. Upon the opposito or west sid of tho county tho vast ranges of tho Muncy hills strike in, and seem to encloso us within their protecting convolutions; and passing onto the north end wo encounter another branch of the great Allegheny range enveloping us on that side. Nob mountain rises abruptly in tho town ship of Orangevilie, and extends north-east-vvardly into Luzerne county, where it also declines to the level of the surrounding country. Along its base rushes Huntingdon o;ek, which rises in Long l'ond in Sullivan county, and passing through n part of Lu zerne empties into Fishingcreek just at tho edge of the township of that namo, whence together they continuo to and pass round its western cud, leavo its wooded sides nnd seek tho g'een valleys that lie on the Susque hanna. Nescopeck mountain extends from Black creek westward into Columbia county and breaks down at Mainville. It is beautiful and regular in its formation, and is now be ing prospected for coal. Scotch Vulley lies south of it, and bsyond the narrow slip rises McCalla mountain, in which there is a large deposit of coal. It breaks down nt about Milllin Cross-Roatls. Beyond McCalla mountain comes Beaver Valley, and beyond that Buck mountain, which slides down into tli o valley some distance abovo Shu man's. A map of the County, giving plainly tho names of streams, hills and mountains is greatly needed. Montour's ridgo extends from the Wet Branch abovo Northumberland eastward by Danvillu to a point north-east of Blooms burg, where it breaks down and sinks away to the level of the surrounding country. It is a beautiful ridgo and rich in minerals; and derives its name from a celebrated In dian family of that name whoso history and exploits will be related as fully as they havo been rescued from oblivion, in a subsequent chapter. Miscellaneous. TIIK CASH OF JACCU'ES LA I!l!I!.N. When a lawyer wishes to impress the minds of a jury with the conviction that it is extremely dangerous for them to convict anyone on clrcumatnuti.il evidence alone, he rehearses a long list of instances in which such proof has turned out to bo a delusion and a snare, and prominently amopg these there figures a garbled account of the trial uud conviction of Jacques La Brun. This s.imo case has often been related by lay writers, who, ignorant of the true principles on which tho rules of ovidenco are based, insist that direct testimony only is to be re garded as of any weight. The true history, however, of the trial of the unfortunate Le Brun, gives support to no such theory. On tho contrary, had his judges paid u proper regard to the weight of circumstantial evi dence, he would huve been ncquitted. Here are tho facts in the case, us set forth by M. in his great collection of Causes Celebres, published years ago. Madame Mazel, residing in 1'nris, had passed tho meridian of life,nnd was possessed of an ample fortune. Sho employed a ro tiiiuc of servients; two footmen, a coachman, Jacques Lo Brun, who had lived with her twenty years, and was her butler, and threo ieinalu servants, composed her household, A man called tho Abbe Poulard lived with her on tt footing of intimacy which did no honor to her reputation. In the courso of thesiimnier of 1GQ0, she had taken from Le Brun n master-key, which opened, all tho doors in tho house, and gave it to (he Abbe Poulard for his accommodation in coming and going at all hours. Lo Bum had n du plicate key which ho continued to use. On Nov. 2!, 1GJIS, tho first Sunday in Advent, Matlanio Mazel, who was very punctilious in the exercises of religion, went to vespers She left her houso nttemled by Lo Brun, on whose arm she leaned, and tho twp footmen followed her. As soon as she was in the chapel, Lo Brun quitted her and went to hear vespers himself ut tho Jncobns, in tho Ruo St. Jncqucs, Madtimo Mazel, upon her return, supped according to her usual custom tete-ii-tcto with tho Abbe Poulard. At H o'clock sho went to her chamber. The maid, as was her usual custom, put tho key on tho chair, alter which they all quitted tho room, and Lo Brun who went lust, drew tho door after him and shut it. Ho thou went Into the kitchen mid took thokoyof tho street door and locked It; ho took It off the hook, but finding himself cold, he laid It down on tho tnblo while ho warmed him self; nnd, being fatigued possjbly, too, having drank moro than ho was accustomed lo ho insensibly fell nslcep, When ho awoke ho heard the clock strlko one. Ho run up to lock tho door, which, to his sur prise, he found wide open, and, v lieu ho had dono so, took tho key with him to his room. bo passed tho night away. Madamo Mazel usually roso nt seven, nnd the servants, w hen eight o'clock struck tho next morning, expressed to each other their wonder that she had not rung her bell. Le Brun hnd gono out early in tho morning to see his wife, to whom ho gavo seven louls and somo other money, which ho bado her lock up. On his return to tho housa ho asked If Mnic, Mazel was yet up. Being told that tho was not, ho expressed great surprise, and uneasiness. Tho wholo house hold, by this (Into nsscmbled in the kltchcm dctermineil to awaken her; they went to her door and rapped loudly, but nil was silent. Soino one suggested that nho had nn npo plcctlc fit, another that bleeding of tho nose, to which sho was subject, had caused her Ui faint; but Lo Brim remarked that it must be something worse. "Something," said he, "is wrong. I nm very uneasy, because I found the street door open last night." The door was broken down, nnd tho servants entered. Lo Brun went hastily to his mis tress' bed. Sho was nssassinated and covered with blood. M. Do Savonnleres, her eldest son, at this moment arrived, (Mine. Mazel lived apart from her family,) and at onco sent for the lieutenant crimincl. In tho namo of him self and his two brothers ho laid a formal complaint beforo that official, and surgeons were sent for to examine the body. About fifty small wounds mado with a knifo were found on her hands, face, shoulders and throat, and these lust, having oceasioned a great effusion of bloud, had been the cause of her death, for none of the wounds were of themselves mortal. In the bed was found a pieco of n laco neck cloth, mid a towel twisted up in tho form of a nightcap, which tewcl belonged to tho housc,atid was marked with nn "S." The-cords of the bells were twisted up above tho reach of the hnnd,atid tied to tho curtain rod; in the ashes was found a knife, seven or eight inches long, the handle of which hnd been of tortoise shell, hut it was nearly till burned tilf. The key of the chamber door was not found on tho scat, where tho maid affirmed sho had put it. No door was broken, and the two doors which opened on tho hack stairs were both shut and locked from the inside. Tho key of the clothes press wns found in its usual resting place under the pillow. On opening tho press, tho purse in which she kept her card money for.like all old dowag ers of that period, she wns tin inveterate gambler Wit3 found, containing some 300 livres in gold. The key of tho strong box was in the sumo place, and in it were lotind four bags, each containing 1000 livics, and many other bags containing different sums, on one of which was written, "This is tho property of tho Abbe Foulard." Voder onu bag there was nn empty purse and red leather writing desk, which contained all Mine. Mazel's jewels, to tho vnluo of lfi.ODO livres. In her pocket there was found the sum of eighteen pistoles in gold. Undoubtedly some other motive than robbery hail caused the perpetration of tho crime. Tho lieutenant crituinel questioned the two women who attended on .Mine. Muz-d : they related succinctly what had passed tho night before. I.e Brim, who was next called upon, gave with equal clearness ac count of everything that had Iiuppeued to himself from the timo of his going out with his mistress to vespers down to the moment of his examination. Ho wns Kcarched, and there was found upon him tho key of the hall, where his pantry was, and a master key, with large wards, which, on trial, was found to open the door of Madame Mazel's chamber, upon which tho lieutenant crimi ncl ordered him into custody. On putting on the napkin it wns found too small for his head ; they examined his hands, but there were no signs of blond on them, nor on his clwthes ; nor wcro thero on any part of his person any marks of that resistance which it was very evident the unftirtunato victim had made. Somo of tho hair of the ruffian who had killed her sho hnd torn off, nnd still held clutched in iter hand. Lo Brun was tin examined in prison, and neither on his person nor in his answers was there found the least cause to believe him tho guilty person. They next examined the lodging of his wife.whero nothing was fouud to criminate him ; however, they seized on his linen, to compare it with a shirt which was found stained with blood in tho garret, hidden under some straw (mid which it was reasonably supposed had been worn by the assassm,) and with the lace neck cloth. Two of tho female servants declared that this neck cloth never had belonged to Le Brun, but said they remembered having washed it, fur a servant named Berry, who had been dismissed from the servicoof Madamo Mazel about four months before, bccatiso he was detected iu robbing her. No resemblance was found between the shirt und those of Lo Brun, nor in any enquiry that wns made did the slightest circumstance arise that tended to fix tho charge on him. On January 11, IC'Jl), M. Do Savnnnicrcs represented anquestto tholifiilennnt crimi uel in ids own name, and in that of his two brothers, demanding that Le Brun should bo declared duly convicted of having murdered Madame Mazel, , and of having roboed her of a qtmn'ity of guld coin that was in her strong box ; and that ho should bo at tho samo time deprived and declared unworthy of a very handsome legacy which had been left him by his old mistress. With such force was that hitter point urged that it was plainly npjmient that tills saute legacy was tho real suitrco ol all the enmity of Do SdvouniQres toward tho unfortunate Le Brun. M.D'Aucour, who vvas employed as Lo Brim's advocate, showed conclusively that it was impossible- ho could bo guilty. Tho deceased had received about fifty wound and had evidently mado great resistance,but tho prisoner had uot oven tho slightest scratch on his hands, or spot of blood on his clothes ; tho towel twisted up like a cap was so much smaller than his head that, he could not put it cm. Tho knife was not his; tho neckcloth was known to belong to another person ; tho shirt was not llko any he possessed ; it was unllko not only In quality, but also in size, mid was mado for a small mail, whereas Lo Brim was tall nnd robust The misdirected zeal of tho prosecution was strongly urged upon llio Court. Why was not inquiry mado after Berry ? Berry, who had once robbctl Madame Mazel who was known to bo an infamous wretch, capable o any inUchlef ; to whom tho iieckelotii was known to belong; who was lu Purls about tho tlmo nf tho murder, ami had been seen since with un amount of money which he could not havo honestly obtained, Why was no notice taken ol the Abbu Poulard Jan cnulvocal character at best: n nrhwt who.

Never was there ft clearer case. There was, no di rect ovidenco either way. A singlo circum stance tho possession of ft master-Kcy, oi which ft dupllcato was known to bo in existence was all that could bo urged against the prisoner, whilo iu his favor thcro was a mass of circumstantial evidence, clear preponderating nnd convincing. His ac quittal seemed certain, but we.who occasion ally feel Inclined to grumblo at the perver sities of juries, would do well to study care fully tho history of French jurisprudence beforo tho Revolution. Poor Lo Briin was tried at different times beforo fifty-fivo judges nun whose business was the trial of causes, and whom the knowledge which comes from experience should havo eullghteucdi But other causes were at work they always wero at work in tho old French parlements family influence, friendship, money, social relations all exerted nn'iuiluenco on these bodies which juries rarely feel. To their iniquitous decisions, on many occasions, was largely due that intense hatred ot tho old systom of proceduro which mado its over throw ono of tho earliest steps lu tho Revo lution. Of the eleven judges who first tried him, two declared that they required further information, two voted that he might bo put to tho torture, and b!x condemned him to death, and that, too, in the most cruel man ner that could be devised. On February 2'.'J his case camo up for re view, and sentenco was passed upon him by tweuty-two judges. Two only of these de manded further inquiry; the other twenty decided for tho torture, ordinary and extra ordinary, Le Brun was in consequence put this dreadful trial, but amid the most dreadful tortures persisted in declaring his innocence. On tho 27th, twenty-two other udges being assembled, two of them voted that he should be sent to the galleys for life; but the rest voted for an adjourned enquiry f twelve mouths, during which tino Le Brun was to remain iu prison, though his wife was to boat liberty. Lo Brun, who had nil this time been kept iu a dungeon, without being allowed to sec any ono but the ailor, was now allowed to receive his wife, children and friends ; but alleviation came too late ; the violence of the torture had so reduced him, though a very athletic and althy man, iu the prune ol life, that his wife had only time to procure for him tho administration of the sacrament's. As he received them he again solemnly Protested lis innocence, and expired amid the despair of his wife and children, and tho regret ol all who knew him. A fnv weeks after this occurrence infor mation was given to tho magistrate uf Sens that a man named (lerlat, otherwise Berry, had established himself in that town its a dealer iu horses, aud without any visible means by which he could acquire money to suppoit such a traffic. Ho was arrcsted,nnd upon him was found a watch which was known to belong to Madamo Maz;l. Pro cess vvas instantly commenced against him and witnesses examined. Several persons swore they had seen him at Paris at the time of the murder ; a woman swore she saw him come out of the house after twelve o'clock on tho very night it was committed A barber deposed that ho hud shaved him the next day, aud bavins observed scratches and wounds on his hands Berry had told him that they were ma''o by a cat which ho had attempted to kill. Tho shirt and neck cloth were proved to bo his by coinpariug them with those found upon him. Berry was put to tho torture, when he con fessed that he had concealed himself in the garret of the houso from the Friday to the Sunday, feeding upon bread and apples, which ho had in his pockets: that on Sun day morning, when Mine. Mazel went to mass, he entered her chamber and crept un der the bed where ho lav for some time. Af ter dinner, when she had gone to vespers, ho warmed himself at tho lire, and llinding his hat troublesome, mado a night cap of a towel, tied up the bell-cord, and stayed till ho heard the coach cuter the yard. Getting back into his hiding place he waited patient ly till the old lady had been in bed an hour, He then showed himself and asked for her money. On her commencing to scream lie told her if sho cried out be would kill her, and upon her still continuing tu do so and Attempting to ring the bell, he struck her witli n knife and kept on stabbing her till she died. Ho then lighted a candle, helped himself to i,000 livres in gold, took his hat leaving the towel and neckcloth ho knew not where, ascended to the garret, whero ho took oil' his shirt, and putting on his coat went down to tho stroet door, which ho fouud open, nnd so made his escape. Berry was broken on tho wheel, and the pdrliamcnt of Paris declared tho memory o Lo Brun to bo freo from any stain, A com raou jury wouiu nave spareu tue llio o: which these experienced judges had deprived him.

Arming tno woun ded officers under her caro was a Mr. An- rew de Rochcllc, a descendant of ono of tho noblest Huguenots of the city. Tho young man was full of tho liveliest gratitudo lor his nurso j gralltudo gave birth to a moro tender sentiment ! his suit was listened to; Governor Pickens gave his consent, and tho marriage was fixed for tho 23d of Ajiril, Lieut, de Rochollo was on duty at Fort Sumpter In tho morning, aud it was deter- incd that tho ceremony should tako piaco at the residence of General lionnatn, at o'clock. At the moment when the Epis copal clergyman wns asking tho brido if slie was ready, a shell fell upon tho root 01 tno building, penetrated to the room whero tho company was assembled, burst, and woun ded nine jicrsons, among them Miss Anna Pickens. Tho sceno that followed cannot e described. Order being at last re-estab lished, the wounded wero removed, with tho exception of tho brido, who lay motionless tho carpet. Her betrothed, lean ing and bonding over her was weeping bit terly, and trying to staunch tho blood that flowed from a tcrriblo wound under tier lelt breast. A surgeon camo and declared that Miss Pickens could not livo but two hours. Wo will not paint tho general despair. When the wounded girl recovered her con sciousness sho asked to know her fate, when they hesitated to tell her, "Andrew," she said, "I beg you to tell mo tho truth; if I must die, I can die worthy of you." Tho young soldier's tears' were his answer, and Miss Anna summoning all her strength, at tempted to smilo. Nothing could be moro heart-rending; than to see tho agony of this rave girl struggling in tho embrace of death and against mortal pain. Gov.
