Many citizens of tho Sta'o of New York
Will remember tho excitement created dur
ing tho summer of I807, by what was gen
crnlly called tho "Weatherwax Murder."
l'lio nrrest, thu legal controversy concerning
jurisdiction, the final tn'al, and the howl
of dissatisfaction which followed the partial
acquittal, are mutters not easily forgotten by
those wiio then resided uear tho scene of the
The circumstances of tho case were sub
stantlally as follows : Captain John G,
Wcathorwnx resided in 185C near the village
of l'lutUburg. New York. He win a man
of good character, ono of a numerous family
of tho same name, tho settlement being
known for miles around as the Weatberwax
settlement. Captain Wcatherwax was, at
tho time of which wo write, about thirty
yeaf of nge, and the owner of a small craft
which plicd.on LakoChampIain trading wltli
New York, Vermont, and , Canada towns
along tho shore of tho lake.
The crew of this vessel consisted pf Ulni
self, his touslii, Andrqw Veatherwax, and a
man mimed Walter Urown. In the latter
part of June, 18.r,C, ho l(ft l'lattsburg with a
cargo (pr Canada, and on tho way back-
stopped at l'ike ltlvcr landing, on tup Caua
da shore, where he was to take on a cargo of
wood for l'lattsburg. During tho day, while
tho wood was being taken on board, a sharr

and his couiin A ml row, and mutual throats
wcro indulged In, It was boon over, how-
over, but as Andrew, had become Intoxicated
ho wa rather morosu during tho entire
Sj farovirythlng.i- plain and easily un
doritood i but hero tho mystery begins, an
what follows is largely based upon tho state
ments of tho third party, Walter Brown
lie stutcs that after daik(tho night was very
cloudy'nml starless) ho was standing 011 th
rear of tho boat and heard tho captain and
lits cousin (who wiru ut tho bow) resume
tho quarrel of tho dy( It steadily increaj-
cd in violence, threats vero exchanged, an
thouuh he could see neither of the parties,
ho could hear illitluclly nil that passed, The
wordy war waxes hotter, and suddenly lie
heard a eriuh ut of n blow crushing through
skull and train, mcwixltd by a heavy fall,
nnd ns suddenly fill wrj still.
Tho man lUtune I with bated bitalh aud
trembled ; his ttrst linpulio was to rush for
ward and offer assistance tu the wounded
iitnu, tut fear restrained him, and ho waited
tho result. In a 'vw minutes the captain
camo aft, but he was alone, L'lown noticed
or be thought Le did, that hs was palo and
qtiistion recognized tho body as that of a
man ho had seen employed on Wcathcrwax's
boat. Ho further testified to having heard
a quarrel on that night, ending with a
scuilo and a blow, after which all was silent.
The altercation, ho thought, proceeded from
Weutherwux's boat, and ho distinctly heard
Wcailierwaxi's voice in the quarrel
Of course suspicion was at once directed
to Weatherwax,andns he could givo no satis
factory explanation of his cotisili'sillsnppriir
iinee, Vn win arrested. Tin- preliminary ex
amitiu'liiti 1 ited lor nine dsys, and prodill-ed
great excitement, but resulted lirltU being
remanded tojsilto take his trial ill Iho ufx'
term of court lor thu ciiine'ot' murder.
The Veiitherwaxe's then beeaioo alarmed.
Few of them doubted his guilt : indeed
nothing seem d more certain ; but they were
not willing that the mime should bo dis
graced by 0110 of them dying at the hand of
the hangman, so they contributed funds,
tnployed able counsel, and made the best
Ivfeiiso possible. Mr. McMuters then and
now, wo Ue.iieve, a leading lawyer 01 that
country was engaged to defend him. Mr.
McMasters examined the case, and though
ho had no doubt of his guilt, he, like a true
lawyer, did his best for him. Not daring to
take his trial on tho merits of the case, he
succeeded iu establishing tho non-jurisdic
tion of the court, and locating the crime itv
Canada, The criminal, for such everybody
now believed him to be, was therefore set at
liberty, when he wos threatened with vio
lence if ho dld.'not leave the country. Ho
refused saying that he was innocent aud
would not stir until he was vindicated,
While a movement was being organized
to put theltllrcuts into extcutioii.Jiiu ollioer
arrival from Canada witli a requisition, and
he was taken ucross the lino for trial.
The trial wits among tho most remarkable
ever held in Canada. The ablest counsel
both of Canada'andNew Yoik wcro eugaged
for the prisoner, and by postponing the trial
for nearly a year, spiriting away some of the
most important witnesses of tho prosecution,
and other ingenious and questionable devi
ces, they succeeded in producing a disagree
ment in one jury, and finally brought about
an acquittal, after eighteen mouths of im
The community felt greatly outraged by
tlio result, and the nress- teemed with de
nunciation of those who thus conspired to
cheat justice. His own counsel, wishing to
repair as much as possible tho wrong they
had done society by rescuing a criminal from
a just fate, advised him to (lee. tho country,
and under another name strive by a better
life to repay society for its tolerance in
silil'ering him to live.
All such adiiicethe wretched man unheed
ed and returned to his old home, declaring
hs purpose to remain there until the cloud
was lifted from his former good name. But
though savcd.fromthu gallows, ho did not
escape punishment. The brand of Cain wa
upon him. Everybody behoved him guilty,
his old fr euds uud neighbors avoided him,
lie was pointed out as a murderer,and his sup
posed crimo was even hooted in his cars
many times as he passed through crowds In
tlie public streets.
Thus tho unhappy man passed eleven
years of his life, submitting quietly and
meekly to the aspersions cast upon him, and
wuiing patiently for his vindication. His
loss of character had brought with it loss
of property; business men shunned him, the
better avenues of t;ado and enterprise wcro
closed against him, and ho became reduced
almost to beggary. Hut amid all theso mis
fortunes ho wits still hopeful.
Thus matters stood until the eeily part of
October, 1SG7, when a man clothed in tho
garb of a sailor, uiado his appearance in the
village of l'luttsbuig.'und Inquired ftr Cap
tain John Weutherwax, The latter was just
then entering the post-office, where a consld'
erable crowd had collected waiting the dls
tributlon of the mail, and was pointed out
to the inquiringstratigcr. He madu his way
toward him, laid his hand familiarly upon
his shoulder, and exclaimed ; "How are
you, John '
John looked ut him a moment Iu bewild
erment, gave a suppressed; sat-am, nndie
"Cireat Heaven I has It come ut last "
Turning to tho crond in tho post-otllce,
which by this time had becomo iutcie-sted,
"Gentlemen, my vindication has at last
come. For eleveu years I havo homo your
reproaches in alienee, hoping and praying
for this hour. Ibis is my cousin Andrew,
lor whoso murder 1 have suffered a punish
meiit many times worse than death,"
Tho men stared at each other aud at tho
sailor, stupefied with wonder. Andrew was
equally perplexed, for tho actions of both
parlies wero to him incomprehensible.
For a short timo there was a disposition to
regard tho new-comer as an imposter who
had been brought forward to relieve Captain
Wcatherwax of tho disgrace that had at'
tnelcd to him ; but LU identity wa-t oou
cstabllihed beyond tiuestlon, aud the inter
est iu the case deecnid, thousands coming
from all parta of the State to see tho man
who had apparently risen fiom the dead.
The account which Audrew gave of him
keif was that he left the boat on that event
ful evening, after tho quarrel, wandered in
to, ci ruin Uiop a shut Okt&uce from to land
ing, btcaiDO engaged iu a fight aud wu ar
retted. In tho wonihig he wm brought be
fore a magistrate; and fined but having no
money, and being Mllljangry with his cousin
ho would not go to him (or aid, and was on
the point of being taken tu Jail, when a
stranger iu the iiudleiice came forward and
ollcred to pay his fine If ho would engage to
sail with him, his vessel then lying at Mon
treal. He consented, nnd tho next day they
sailed for China j Btid for eleven years he
had followed the fea and never onco com
municated with his relatives. He now heard
for tho first time what one of them had
suffered on his account.
The matter of tho blood, and his hat,
which, it will be remembered was found on
tho deck, ho explained by stating that he
had had the nose-bleed during the day, and
that somo of tho blood had probably fallen
on the deck j tho hat he tossed upon tho
deck when ho decided to go nut, in tho oven
iug, taking n better one in its itend.

alleged, but there was certainly criminal
looseness In judgment which embittered the

It is hardly ncc'c-ary to say that there was
a complete revolution in feeliug toward Mr.
Weatherwnx. Every one seemed anxious to
compensate by klndnsss and patronage for
the wrongs so innocently inflicted before.

suited for the manufacture of musical itiBtra-

of Chemutry iu the Brussels Ecule Poly

intestines of the victim, he called out to
thoso present to cease smoking, as ho could
not endure the smell of tobacco. It turned
out that uo ono was smoking, but a ray u
tight was shed upon tho hitherto obscure
