History of Coluiulria County.
Copy right secured arconling to net of Congreu.
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
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
Little Fishingcreek enters the County at
the Lycoming County line, and in its courso
becomes tho boundary lino between the
townships of 1'ino nnd Jackson, then Pino
and Greenwood, then Greenwood and Madi
son, then Madison nnd Mount l'le.isant.tlicn
Mount l'leasant and Hemlock, and entering
Big Fishingcreek about four miles from its
mouth, at a point whero Illoonij Mount
l'leasant and Hemlock join ; and (eceiving
in its windings various small streams, as
Black run, Spruce run, Bear run, mid
Big Fishingcreek, west branch enters the
County from Lycoming at tho north corner
of Jackson township, and tho cast branch
through n gap in the mountains from Sulli
van County into tho township of Sugarloaf
on lands of Craig, Blauchitrd & Co.; thenco
aoulh through Sugarloaf to ubout tho centre,
on the west bide, whero tho two branches
meet thenco nearly to tho south end of Su
garloaf where it receives Cole's creek
thence into Benton, near tho south-west side
of which It receives West creek, thence
through nnd Into Fishingcreek township,
nearly to tho soutli point, whero itirccetves
Huntingdon creek, a largo alllucnt from Lu
zerno county thenco by ft westerly courso
Into Orange, where it receives Green creek,
thenco south-west to tho bouudary line be
tween Orange and Mount l'leasant ; thenco
to tho Susquehanna river as the boundary
lino between Orange and Mount l'leasant,
Scott and Mount l'leasant, Bloom und Hem
lock, and Bloom and Montour, reaching the
river about two miles below Bloomsburg, at
Rupert, 011 tho Catawissa uud Luckawamia
& Bloomsburg railroads.
Brlarcreck, Big and I.iltlo havo their
heads in the County, The larger stream
rises in Centre, Hows castwardly through Us
whole length, into and through Brlarcicck
township, nnd emntvlnc Into the Susnuclinn-
na about threo miles below tho borough 0"
Berwick, The smaller rising in Brlarcreck
township and flowing through it nearly
south, emptying Into tho main stream about
two miles from its mouth.
Huntingdon creek rises In Long Fond, in
Sullivan county, and is fed by springs and
runs in Fnlrmount and Ross townships in
Luzerne County. It enters Columbia Coun
ty near tho south-east corner of Fishing
creek township, and falls into tho Fishing
creek a few miles abovo Ornngnvillc.

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 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 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
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

could not havo honestly obtained, Why was

The counsel on tho other siilo lalti great
stress on tho possession of tho key, on Lo
Brim's exclamation, "This is not apoplexy,
but something worse." and on tho soven
louls ho gavo his wife to lock up, and,whlch
it was pretended was part of tho money tak
en from Madamo Mazel, although no Identi
fication of it vvas even attempted. 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

On April 23, 1601, tho Federal tronp, sta
tioned at Charleston hsrbbr. ham tune to
tlmo throw ft shell into the city, but nobody
seemod to bo disturbed.
Miss Anna Pickens, tho daughter of one of
our former Governors, would not lcavo tne
city. Despite the representation of Gen. Beau
regard, sho remained, braving shells and
Greek firc.tendlng'.tho wounded andchccrlng
all with her presence. 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. Ticketis,
hose courage is known, almost without
consciousness, and Mrs. Pickens, looked up
on her child with tho dry hajgard eye of
ono whose reason totters.
Lieut, de Rochello was the first to speak.
Anna," ho cried, "I will die soon, too, but
would havo you now die mywife. There
yet time to unite us."
The young girl did not reply. Sho was
too weak. A slight flush rose'for an instant
to her palo check ; it could bo seen that
joy and pain were struggling in her spirit for
tho mastery. Lying on a sofa, with her
ridal dress all, stained with blood, her hair
disheveled, she had never been moro beau
tiful. Helpless as she was, Lieut, do Roch
