Ileliolil this ruin I Here's n skull
Onco of cllierinl spirit lull)
This narrow cell was lifo's retreat,
Tliis spaco was Thought's mjslcrious sent)
Wliul lonnleoits pictures filled this spot I
What dreams of pleasure, long forgot!
Nor hope, nor joy, nor love, nor fear,
Have left ono trace of record here.
Ilcnonth this mnuld'ring ennopy,
Once sliono the bright and busy eye J
Hut ftnrt not nt tho dismal voidi
If social love that eye employed,
If witli no lanlcss firo it gleamed,
1'ut through the dews of hindnpsi beamed,
That cyo fhnll bo for cicr bright,
When stars and suns have lost their light I
Hero in thii silent cavern, hung
The ever ready, tuneful tongue ;
If folehood's honey it disdained,
And where it could not praise wns chained,
If bold in virtue's cause it spoke,
And gentle concord never broke,
TliU silent tongue rhall plead for thee,
When timo unveils eternity I
Perhaps tho heart pulsated here,
That nlways bled to think the tear
Of widow's grief nnd orphan woo
So oft in this cold world should flow,
And oft alone in thoughtful mood
Ilnlh raised a fervent prayer to God
That he would soothe the troubled breast
With grief and penury oppressed I
Say, did these' fingers delve the mined,
Or with the envied rubies shine ?
To hew the rock or wear the gem,
Can nothing now avail to them ;
Hut if tho page of truth they sought,
Or comfort to tho mourner brought,
These hands a richer meed shall claim
Than all that wait on wealth or fame I
Avails it whether bare or shod
These fee' the paths of duty trod?
If from the boners of ea'o they lied,
To seek affection's humble shed,
if grandeur's guilty bribe they spurned,
And home to virtue's lap returned,
These feet with nngel's wings shall vie,
And trend the palace of the sky I
"Wilt thou forget ?" The billows bound
Detwecn the ship nnd shore,
A henrt is drifting out to sa.
With sorrow steeped nnd sore,
Its mate upon tiie rugged rocks,
Where dash the breakers ever,
Repents into the echoes 'round,
' 'All I never! never! never!"
Swift winds attend the fleeting craft,
The outer sea is won j
A sail sinks 'nenth its distant rim
And sinks tho watcher's sun
Ah, waters! will ye e'er unite
The hearts thnt thus ye sever ?
Ah, Hope ! is yours the power to still
Tho voice that answers "Never!"
'Twns summer then, 'tis summer now
The wind and waves are sighing,
A wreck upon the farther rocks
In shattered mass is lying ;
A lifeless form is on tho beach,
And dead in all endeavor,
Hut lives the echo's sad refrain,
And shout tho waters, "Never!"
A shadow from tho jutting cliff
Falls o'er the pallid face,
Another life goes out to meet
The billows closo;
The corses dot tho silv'ry sands,
Two souls are joined forever,
Two spirits sail the n.ure seas,
To be divided iievtr.
If Milliliters nwl courtiers were counting
on her death, Eliz .belli had no mind to die.
She had enjoyed life as the men of her day
enjoyed it, and "iw that they were gono she
clung to it witli furco tenacity. She hunt'
ed, she d meed, she jested wilh her young
favoiites, she coquetted, and she tcolc'edand
frolicked at sixty-evon n she. bad dono at
The Queen,' wroto a courtier a few months
belore her death, 'was never so gallant these
many years, nor so bent upon jolity.'
She persisted in spite of opposition, in her
gorgeous progress irom couniry nouso to
country house. She clung to business as of
old, and rated her usual fashion 'ono who
minded not giving up some matter of ac
But death crept on. Her face became
haggard, and her frame Bhrunk almost to a
skeleton. At last her taste for finery disap
pcarcd, and she refused to change her dress
for a week together. A strange melancholy
fettled down on her.
She held in her hand,' says one who saw
her in her last days, 'a golden cup which
the often put to her lip, ; but in truth her
heart eemed too full to need more filling.'
Gradually her mind guvo away. Sh
lost her memory, the vlolcncoof her temper
became unbearable, her very courage seem
ed to forsake her. She called for a sword to
lit constantly besido her, and thrust it from
timo to time through the arras, as If she
heard murderers stirring there. Food and
rest Beemed alike distasteful. She sat day
and night propped up witli pillows on a
stool, her fingerx on herlip, her 'eyes fixed
upon the floor, without a word. Ifsho once
broke the silence it was with a flash of her
old queeuliiiess. When Sir Ilobert Cecil
declared she mu9t go to bed, the word rous
ed her like a trumpet.
'Must 1' she exclaimed ; 'Is must n word
to be addressed to a Princess ? Little inan(
little father, thy lather, if ho had been alive,
durst not have used thnt word.'
Then as her anger spent itself, she sank
into old dejection,
Thou art so presumptuous,' she said, 'be
cause thou knowest that I shall die,'
She rallied once more when the ministers
beside her named Lord Ileauchamp, the heir
to tho Suffolk claim, as a possiblo succes
sor, 'I will have no rogue's eon,' she crltd
hoaely in her seat.'
Hut she gave no sign savo a motion of Jthe
head at the mention of the King of Scots

ritilgtb Tho family of Dr. Marsh, In Albany ave
nue, Ilrooklyn, havo In their possession n
remarkable old document, which lias been
preserved with great caro ever since tho
father of tho present head of the family
came to reside in that city. The paper l a
dilapidated bit of parchment containing
written verses on both sides, but the ink has
become so faded that careful study Is requir
ed to decipher tho words. Around tho edges
a rudo attempt at binding has resulted in
making the parchment moro fragmentary
than before. Several yearn ngo a copy of the
verses was made, which Is still in good con
dition, and is shown to friends in the fami
ly. Tho verset contain a prophecy, nnd were
writtjn by Mrs. Abby Marsh, in tho year
1787, at her homo in Sherbrook, Canada.
Her immediate descendants claimed that
.Mrs. M, was possessed of extraordinary pow
ers of foresight, and instanced an occasion
when sho awoke from a dream in time to
savo the life ol n child. Liko all other pro-
phetie effusions, however, it reaeived but lit
tle attention until several of its assertions
had become things of the past, and public
attention was called to their apparent fulfill
ment. Fragmentary portions of the rhyme
which Mrs. Marshl called "Columbia's
Destiny," found their way into tho Canadian
newspapers, some of the extracts being In
the possession of Dr. Marsh.
A reporter obtained permission to copy
the old document, and they are herewith
given, together with tho explanation which
a history of the lat century suggests. Thus
it runs :
Columbia, homo of Iibettle,
Shall not twenty rulers see thcro shall be battlo smoke,
Kre peaio shall seem to be broke,
And in waves of peril tost,
Tho ancient order shall be deemed lost.
It is a significant fact, when taken in this
connection, that It. II. Hayes is tho' nine
teenth ruler of the United States, as will bo
seen by tho order in which the presidents
succeed each other :
1. Washington. 11. Polk,
2. John Adams, 12. Taylor,
3. JeflVrson, 13. Filmoro,
4. Madison 11. Pieriv,
fi. Monroe, 15. Buchanan,
fi. J. Q. Adams, 10. Lincoln,
7. Jackson, 17. Johtison,
8. Van Huron, 18. Grant,
9 Harrison, 19. Hayes,
10. Tyler,
The strange chronicler continues :
The first shall, too, the second be,
If the fates tell Truth as eveu he ;
Where sits the sire shall sit the son,
Hut not tho son's son.
And ere the son shall ruler be
One placo shall send three ;
Three with one shall make her four (4)
Iiefircnco is undoubtedly mado to Gener
al Washington's proverbial truth telling, in
the second lino, and to the succession of
John Quincy Adams to the place of his
father, in the third. "ISut not his son's
son," seems to point to Mr. Charles Francis
Adams, who has universally failed in his as
pirations to bocome president. Hatween the
Adamses did come three from "ono place"
(Virginia), who, with the accidental John
lyier maun tne lourlii. -Nor lias the
"Mother of Presidents" since born a son
distinguished by even a nomination to the
chief magistracy. The prophecy proceeds :
Tho first sprung from tlins"desund loins
In death his predecessor joins j
Who beneath his son shall pass
And in .1 house that different was ;
The next one shall havo peaco and wat;
Tho third shall brook no kinirly star ;
When the qutrtcr century's run,
Where sat the sire shall Ml the sou,
It is difficult to interpret a portion of this
extract. JelVerson and John Adams it is
well known, died on tho 4th day of July,
1820, their simultaneous de.Uhs firm
ing due of the most remarkabU coin
cidences in history : but tho meaning of
the clause, "And in a homo that different
was," is rather vague. Tho venerable ex
president died on the floor of the capita),
but the latter building was part of the origi
nal ouo erected at tho seat of government
Mr. Madison's administration witnessed
both the war with England and the period
of peace and prosperity which followed it ;
while the quarter century reckoned from
1800, saw the inaugural ceremonies of the
younger Adams.
Here several of the lines aro no oblitera
ted or defaced that they are unreadable.
Then comes he who should have been before
A soldier, who shall not havo any war,
"Old Hickory's" record seems to bear this
ut, especially the last line. The vigorous
manner In which he "sat down" upon the
uullifiers "deferred," so Mr. Bancroft says,
"the approaching civil war for many years."
The prophecy continues :
(1 2) After the fox tho lion shall
Ho lordly ruler over all
Hut death shall in the mansion wield
Sword surer than m the tented held,
(3) Aficr him there comes anon
One who had friends but shall have
(4) The hickory shall sprout out again j
A soldier come from battle plain,
Hut shall not long remain,
Nor shall his heir bear sway again.
(0) Then a youth shall follow, who (sic)
And shall know, though none knew,
Taken in their successive order, the above
lin"s ought te apply first to Martin Van Hu
reu (but why should ho be callul a fox ?)
second, to General Harrison, who died at
most immediately after his inauguration
third to Tyler, whoso conduct caused a rup
turein his party; fourth, to Polk, who was
popularly known as "Young Hickory" (see
Henton's "lhirty .ears In the Senate, I
p. 374), and fifth to Franklin Pierce, th
youngest up that time, and whose selection
was a surprise to everybody.
While tho uext probably Buchanan do
ueur tuu ruie,
To-morrow's sago is this day's fool J
There shall be trouble manifest,
North and South and East nnd West.
The strong man shall tho weak befriend,
inn u buuii not lie me enu ;
Under the uext Lincoln shall widow
Thousand's be slain, but millions bfru j
Death, in the strife, shall pass him bv.
But when the peace cometh he shall die
A soldier alter mm snail be,
Who shall see his century.
The hero of Appomattox is here iindoubt
edly referred to, and the Centennial celebra'
tl' t I'liilHaeljibta.
But the most remark
j ablo part of this prophecy Is the following
i if
llulo afterward shall ho got
By tho ono whoso it was not !
Men shall roar, nnd rage, nnd rave,
But ho shall havo who should not havo
When the storm of tide li over
Four shall make 0 and not 4,
He who wa shall be no more,
And all that's past not mako a score,
Thli will seem almost Incredible to many,
but It Is proved beyond doubt that the lines
were In existence, nnd iu ono instanco pub
lished before Grant left tho executive chair.
.Mr. Hayes Is tho nineteenth president j there
has been "battle smoko" enough In n politi
cal sense, when are takon Into consideration
the recent electoral frauds. Can "tho last
two lines by nny possibility refer to the sage
of Oramercy park, and the systematic dis
patching ho has received at tho hands of tho
But Columbia chall nrraln
lllsc, nnd fairer bo than then (sic)
Brother Bhall with brother speak,
Whom ho hath not seen a week j
Letters shall go 'nenth tho deep
Likewise over tho mountain steep j
Men shall speak to brazen ears,
That shall bo mouths in after years j
Words spoken shall bo sent through
So no s, I ihlo bo lost ;
A drop of water shall have then
Tho force of many thousand men.
It docs not tnke a very fanciful imagination
to draw from the nbovo a clear indication of
rofesior Edison's numerous wonders of in
vention. The alleged motor of Mr. Keelv.
Philadelphia mechanic, claims tn titlllzs n
rop of water so that thousands of pounds of
pressuro aro obtained.
Much of the next passago is senseless.and
clearly written In Imitation of tho old weirds.
Whether the rain falling "as men ordain"
might not bo taken for tho modern weather
predictions, is a question for tho individual
reader to pass upon.
Ghosts shall guide tho plow and rain
And snow shall fall as men ordain ;
The commonest of stone or stick
Other shall bo than long, broad, thick.
Here and in n foreign clime
Men shall be nt the samo time,
Bread ye shall from nshes bake,
Ice they shall to diamonds make,
And thesalt seas their thirst shall slake.
Tho conclusion looks very much like
the time when "two Sundays meet" or "to
morrow como never ' runs as follows :
All these things shnll happen, when 7
They shall happen not before
Six years shall be reckoned four,
Thirteen shall bo thirty-nine ;

A singular explanation of this apparently
unmeaning riddle has been suggested by a
mathematician named Townsend. When

be taken as alluding to tho original nnmber

1812 or 1813) would have iu her mind. The

to quit work. About three years ago I came
ero and started in business again as a music
publisher. I wanted someone to write pop
ular music for me, and I thought of Henry
Work. But I couldn't find him. He
ad secluded himself so elfectually that it
as six months before I found him, and then
was by meeting him accidentally on Broad
way, lie was very poor, and was trying to
support himself nnd little daughter by writ
ing magazine articles. Well, the result of
our meeting was that Work wrote three
songs for me, "The Mystic Veil," "Sweet
Echo Dell." and "Grandfather's Clock."
Theso were nil published in 1S70, and sold
well from the start, but the latter piece
has elipsed tho others, and in fact, nil
other songs recently published. It is the hit
f the tunes."
"Hut how did you make it popular, Mr.
Cady ? You showed it to mo in 1870, but
lid not hear of it again until 1878."
"I'll tell you. I havo collected the names
of Ihotisandsof musical people, dealers and
tho like, and I send them circulars with tho
lea of my words nnd music publications.
So I did with "Grandfather's Clock." Tho
first that tha largo musio dealers knew of tho
success of tho piece was from tha largo orders
received from the country. I,i f.ict the pieca
had been popular in tho country for over a
ear. Last winter it was just as popular in
hiladelpliia as it is now in New Y'.rk and
Brooklyn ; and for over n year and a half
t has sold in large numbers on tho Pacific
coast. I think the first concert troupe that
brought it out was tho "Hyer Sisters Com
bination." Tuoy nre negroes. They brought
it out in New England, Sam Lucas singing
the solo, nnd nu invisible quartet tho chorus
saw by tho papers that it was successful
and went to New Haven one Jnigbt to hear
it. It was certainly a good thing. The au
dience gave him double nud triple encores.
As Sam Lucas said, 'they tore up the bench-
I must tell you a funny experience I
had with the San Francisco minstrels, for it"
was a good joke on Wninbold. When the
song wns first published I took a copy to
Warabold nnd told him I thought it would
make : hit. He laughed nt me. Said he
got bushels of such stull' every day. I went
away. After the song began to sell well in
tho country I went there again, nnd he treat
ed tne 110 better. Said he didn't wnut nny
ono to come telling him 'what was in his
line :' that lie wouldu't have such trash on
his programme. I wasn't over and nbovo
pleased, and said to myself as I went away:
I shan't go there again, but Mr. Waiubdld
you'll have to sing that song yet.' And now
every night you may read on the programme
of the San Irancisco miustrels, 'Mr, Warn-
bold will slug "Grandfather's Clock." I'm
going up there some time and nsk Mr. Warn
bold if he hasn't some champagne on ice for
me. I think the joke is on him."
"Well, then, Mr. Work is no louger so
very poor?"
"Poor! I should say not. I pay him
$230 a month on ' Grandfather's Clock"
alone,and he gets a good thing on others ho

character, not a temperance song, though,
called "bhadowson tho Wall," nnd ho bus
just finished a sequel ;to "Graudfather's

writes the songs, words aud music, but he

TISTEUY. In Scribner for March, Mr. It. G. Hatfield
has a fresh study of the old problem of
the original uso of tho old tower In Truro
Park, Nowport. In the author's mind", the
weight of evidence Is decidedly In favor of
It having been built as a baptistery by the
Norwegian discoverers about tho year 1000.
In elucidation tiflhls theory, nnd In confu
tation of other, a number of Interesting
drawings of baptisteries, etc., are given with
tho article. The writer says I
In the early centuries It was considered
indispensable that every cathedral, or church
of a bishop, should havo Its baptistery, n
separate building located In the vicinity of
the cathedral, where the ordinnnco of Chris
tian baptism could bo administered to the
candidates, preparatory to admitting them
to the assemblies of tho faithful. In Italy
alone about sixty of these buildings are still
extant. Some of them aro in ruins, as at
Canosa, in Apulln, and at Castel-Seprlo j
others still have had tho font removed, and
as chapels made to serve for worship, as thnt
of Stn. Co-tnnza, at Home, thnt of Bologna,
nnd that of Hovigno, in Istrln; many are
still used ns baptisteries, and in some the
original font, of amplo dimensions, yet re
mains, ns in Home, at tho Lateran baptistery
the font of which is twenty-seven feet in di
ameter; that of the beautiful circular bap
tistery of Pisa, the font in which is ten feot
in diameter aud tlireo nnd one-third feet
deep; as also that of Nocera, the font In
which is seventeen feet in diameter rnd four
feet deep. The font of the baptistery of
Florence was destroyed three hundred years
since; It occupied an octangular space
twenty beven feet in diameter, now paved
with marble differing from the other pave
ment, and surrounded by a white marble
coping, on which, plainly visible, is au In
scription designating the inclosed area as the
place of tho original font. Dante, iu bis im
mortal poem, refers to this font, a part of
which he broke in his efforts to save a child
from drowning. These facts nfliird Incon
testable proof, in addition to historical tra
ditions concerning them, of tho use for
which these buildings were originally con
structed, If these were baptisteries audit
cannot be questioned then the Nowport
structuro was also one.
The round bul'dings of Greenland, re
ferred to by Professor Hafn, were also bap
tisteries. Thero was one doubtless, for each
bishopric. Only one is found In Vinland,
because the colony wns small, and was all
comprised, no doubt, in one bishopric.
It need not be thought strange that, if the
Newport structure be a baptistery, thero arc
no remains of the church near which It must
have stood. In a country like Vinland,
abounding with timber at that early timo,
:.e lirst structures ol the colonists were un
doubtedly of wood, and not until they came
to feel that their residence there was likely
to prove permanent, would they resolve to
build with more durable material. Then,
after having constructed the baptistery of
stone, they may have intended to follow this
up by the moro important work of building
the cathedral of the same material : but
failed to realize these intentions through ap
prehension of trouble with the Indians, or by
nctual wnr, which may have ended in tho
extermination of the colonists.
A touching story of a child's heart is told
by the Pittsburg Telegraph. A young man
who had been on a three-day's debauch wan
dered into the reading room of a hotel,
where h 3 was well known, sat down, and
stared moodily into the street. Presently a
little girl of about ten years came in and
looked timidly about the room. She was
dressed in rags, but sho bad n sweet, intelli
gent face that could scarcely fail to excite
sympathy. There were five persons in the
room, and she went to each begging. One
gentleman gave her a fivo cent piece, nnd
then she went to the gentleman spoken of
nnd asked him for a penny, adding, 'I
haven't had anything to eat for a whole
day.' The gentleman was out of humor nnd
he said crosaly : 'Don't bother me! go away!
I haven't had anything to cat fur three
days.' The child opened her eyes iu chy
wonder and stared at him fur a moment,
and then walked slowly toward the door.
She turned tho knob, and then, after hesitat
ing a fow seconds, walked up to him, aud
gently laying the five cents she had received
on his knee, said with a tone of true girlish
pity in tier voice, 'If you haven't had any
thing to eat for three days you take this and
buy Bomo bread. Perhaps I cau get some
moro somewhere.' The young fellow
blushed to the roots of his hair, and lilting
the Sister of Charity in his nrms kissed her
wo or three times in delight. Then he
took her to persons in the room, and to
those in the corridors and the office, and told
the, story and asked contributions, giving
himself all the money he had with him. He
succeeded in raising over $40, and sent the
little one on her way rejoicing.
The earnestness with which Darwin ad
vanced ills theory that man is a descent of
the monkey, has caused many able thinkers
to look into tho matter. This theory, as a
matter of course, will never become a com'
mon belief, but investigation upon this
point, as upon all others, reveals many curl
ous things.
Not long ago a Chimpanzee died at th
Philadelphia Zoological Garden, and Dr.
Henry C. Chapin. its owner, is making an
examination of its remains. Tho doctor is
giving the result of his Invmtigation to the
cademy of Natural Scieuce, and on Wed
nesday eveulng last he said that what struck
him especially, in dissectiug the neck was
tho remarkable similarity between it and
the neck of the human being, the general
distribution of tho muscles being the same.

London has been thrilled by n burglar'
exploit. Pease, a burglar, was in a third
class compartment of a railway train with
two warders. The train was running from
London to Sheffield, At Peterborough ha
got off the train, and was with difficulty
forced to ra-enter. He theti'remalned quiet
for somo time, but when about twelve miles
from Sheffield he asked that the windows of
the carriage might bo opened. This was no
sooner dono than the burglar took a dive out
through the aperture. One of the wardens
succeeded in catching him by one foot. For
two miles ho hung downward suspended by
one toot and making downward termite
struggles to freo himself. In vain ho wrig
gled for although his captors unablo to
catch tho other foot, both held him as in a
vice. But one contingency they had not
provided against. Pease wore spring .boots,
and tho one on which hi? fato seemingly de
pended on camo otT, Tho burglar fell hcavi
iy on tho foot board of tho carriage and roll
ed off on tho railway. Threo miles further
on tho train stopped and the wardens went
back to tho sccuo of escape. Here they
found Pease unconscious in the snow, bleed
ing from a wound in his head. Ho was at
once placed on a slow train which was pass
ing at tho time and conveyed to Sheffield.
During the time he was struggling with the
warders the warder who had ono hand free
and the passengers of the other compart
ment who were witnessing the scene from
tho windows of tho train were indefatigu
able in the efforts to attract the attention of
the guard by means of the communication
cord, but with un result. For two miles the
unfortunate man hung head downward, and
for three miles further the train ran until J it
stopped at an ordinary resting place. The
incident illustrates the worthlessness of
check strings on tho the English railways.
feaunder's Irish Daily News' says : 'For
twenty years the public have cried aloud
against the absence of a means of commun
ication between passengers, drivers and
guards of trains, and yet to this hour the
evil is staring us full in the face. Some
companies have cords that will not act, oth
ers have no cords at all ; a few have elabor
ate,'costly and scientific apparatus, electric
or otherwise, which the ordinary passeDger
does not understand and fears to touch ; and
yet there are hundreds, perhaps thousands,
of passengers in this country who have trav
eled in Am;rica and seen in operation there
the inexpensive, simple aud efficacious plan
which our railway directors will not adopt.'
We learn fiom a correspondent that thero
resides in the vicinity of Harrisburg, an out
of the way place in Hancock county, about
three miles west of Mount Blanchard n very
remarkable child, only five years old, who
seems to have the power to charm birds at
will. Her mother first noticed this strange
fascination that the child possesses about a
year ngo. The little girl was out playing in
the door-yard among a bevy of snow-birds,
and when she spoke to them they would
come and light upon her, twitting with glee.
On taking them in her hands and stroking
them, the birds, instead of trying to get
away from their fair captive, seemed highly
pleased, and when let loose would fly away a
short distance nnd immediately return to the
child again. She took several of them Into
the house to show htr mother, who, thinking
Bhe might hurt them, put them out of doars,
but 110 sooner was the door opened than the
irds flew into the room again and lit upon
the girls head nnd began to chirp. The
birds remained about the promises all winter
flying to tho little girl whenever the door
wns opened. The parents of tho child be
came alarmed, believing that this strange
power was an ill-omen, nud thnt that much
dreaded visitor, death, was about to visit
their home. But denth did not come, and
uring last summer tho child has had num
erous nests Irom the birds. I he child
handles the birds so gently that a humming
bird once in her hand docs uot fail to re
turn. TJiis wiuler r bevy of birds hnvekept
her company, and she plays with them for
hours at a time. Every morning tiie birds
fly to her window, and leave ouly nheu the
sun sitiks in tho west. The parents of this
little girl are poor, superstitious people, and
have been reticent about the matter until
lately, fearing that somo great calamity was
about to belall them. Fared (Ohio) Review.

A correspondent tells a story about Judgo
Kent that is interesting. A case of burg
lary was being tried before him. The pris
oner's name was Cowdry, and the evidence
.showed that he had cut a hole through a
rubbor tent in which several persons were
leeping, large enough to admit his
arm and head, and abstracted several
articles of value. His counsel took the
ground that the prisoner,having only reached
into the tent, lfad not "entered" it, and that
on this technicality the defendant should be
Inlnscuarge to the jury, Judge Kent,
with a grim smile, alluded to the pica of the
prisoner's counsel, and instructed them that
if they wero in doubt as to tho guilt of the
whole man, they might bring him in guilty
as far as they judged the evidence would
warrant, and the jury, after a brief period of
consultation, brought in a verdict against
Thomas Cowdry, tho prisoner at the bar, of
guilty to the full letter of the indictment as
to his right arm, his right shoulder, and his
head. Tho judge sentenced the arm, the
shoulder, and the head of said Thomas
Cowdry to imprisonment at hard labor in
state prison for the term of two years. The
prisoner might do with the remainder of his
body what be pleased. Hangar (Me.) Whig.
