Extraordinary Letter from a Murderer.
Ira Stout, who was convicted at Rochester,
New York, of the murder of his brother-in
law, Littles, has written a most extrordinary
letter to the editor of the Rochester Ameri
can, from which we make the following ex
"The trial is past. It is these terrific or
deals that either sweep the immortal mind
from its proud throne, and crush it in the
dust, or else call forth its vast energies to meet
the killing storm, with a firmness which
nothing can overturn. I arose to receive that
verdict and sentence with a cool, determined
resolution to stand unmoved, though it wrung
the life-blood from the heart.' There was no
visible emotion to show the volcano boiling
within, and the immense audience failed to
perceive that the passionless exterior simply
concealed an internal agony, of which no mor
tal man can form a conception. It was a ter
rible illustration how much a man may bear
when supported by all the philosophy and
self-control he possesses. To a young man,
the startling word—death—terminates all his
brilliant hopes and ambition, all his powerful
attachments to earth ; and not only his, but
the love, hope, and interest of others, must
slowly fade away.
" I wish to speak of Littles, but I can hard
ly find it in my heart to make war upon the
dead. Bad as he was, I bitterly regret his
death ; but the dead past can never be re
called. His connection with the family made
me his friend and defender, and I acted toward
him like a man and a brother. I thought his
youth and inexperience would cover a mul
titude of sins ;' and though his conduct had
been outrageous, yet he was more worthy of
being pitied and assisted than condemned and
avoided. In our first interview, he rehearsed
to me the wretched drama of his life, and per
haps I am better acquainted with him than
any one ; but I find it difficult to speak of
him, simply because I feel no disposition to
open a record of disease and degradation.--
When he married Sarah she was mild and
beautiful, pure and innocent, unskilled in the
follies and flatteries of the world, and if placed
under the control of a man of sense, she might
have been moulded into a model of domestic
beauty. God alone knows what she has suf
fered from this unhappy union.
"Littles would return from his drunken
orgies, and without the slightest cause abuse
a woman he had sacredly sworn to love and
protect, in the most brutal and disgusting
manner. The old Mehester jail contains the
final result of his inhuman conduct. If she
and mother and little Charley were discharged
to-morrow, it would he a just and honorable
proceeding, and, tiller as it is, I am ready to
offer up my life as a ransom for their liberty.
That I felt a brother's sympathy for Sarah,
in regard to her wrongs, is too true. That my
heart sometimes burst with indignation, is
equally true. And if there is a spirited
brother in Christendom, who will stand pas
sively by and see his sister abused, he ought
to be carved into cubic inches and fed to the
dogs. My attachment to Sarah is simply a
brother's love—the purest and holiest man
can conceive. She possesses the faults and
frailties of a woman ; but no matter whether
right or wrong, she is still my sister, and it is
my sacred duty to defend her, as long as the
power of action remains.
" I do say most decidedly, a man who will
abuse a pure and beautiful woman—a man
who will strike her—l say from the bottom of
my heart, he is not fit to live. I know, as the
district attorney would say, this is showing a
motive, pretty strongly ; but while I see how
much circumstances are against me, I will
say, it is purely impossible for me to fight or
injure any one, unless placed in a desperate
-position, where reason and self-control are
suspended. My future hopes were too bright
(and other hopes than mine rested on my no
tions,) my judgment and resolution were too
strong, and I understood my situation too
:well, to engage in any transaction which would
involve me in difficulty, unless I became the
- victim of an accident. Perhaps the public
may shortly be informed of that most singu
lar combination of circumstances that led to
that unhappy collision, which not only sent
Littles to a horrible death, but I fear he will
drag another after him, who, I do believe, de
serves a better fate. There is power for use
fulness in me, if I only have an opportunity
for development, and I appeal to the heart of
every reader, if he does not fairly and can
didly think I might be put to a better use
than hanging. Ido not wish to show a cow
ardly tenacity for life, but I consider it my
right and duty to live as long as I can.
"From the time I entered the city of Roches
ter up to this terrible accident, my course was
onward and upward. I knew that my repu
tation must be raised and supported by my
own industry and ability, and my days and
nights were spent in the most laborious study,
and in trying to elevate myself in the estima
tion of sensible men and women.
"I ask those who visit me to speak to me
as they would to a son or brother and, above
all, to remember me and mine when bowed
before the Throne of Mercy, and pray that
Ave may meet in that bright world where care
and sorrow never come.
" Rochester Jail, May 4, 1858."
The Death Clock
We have recently been informed of a truly
wonderful clock, which is said to belong to a
family residing in Newport, Ky. We relate
the peculiarties of this clock as they were re
lated to us, leaving our readers arrive at their
own conclusions as to the mystery. Our in
formant is one who can be relied on. The
clock is of simple construction, and belongs
to the family of Mr. L Ar, but all the
efforts of the clock makers have not been able
to make it keep time—consequently it has
been permitted to rest in silence. A few
hours before the death of Mr. L V's
sister, which took place some time since, the
clock suddenly struck one after a silence of
several months. It thus continued to main
tain its silence until another of the members
of the family were prostrated with a fatal mal
ady, when it again struck one, and on the fol
lowing day the child was buried. A year
elapsed, when a second child sickened and
died: The clock was punctual in sounding
one a few hours previous to his death.. A.
third child, a little boy, fifteen months old,
was afflicted with scrofula, which baffled the
skill of his physician, and on the third day
of this month its remains were deposited in
the -grave. The clock gave the usual warn
ing and struck one. It never failed sounding
a death-knell when any one of the family in
whose possession it now is, where about to
die. "There are stranger things in heaven
and on earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in
our philosophy."—Cincinnati Gazette,
Utah and the Mormons—Statenient of t
Fred. Loba, a "Disgusted Mormon."
[Correspondence of the New York Times.]
Thursday, April 29, 1858.
From my notes in relation to personal
events transpiring in Salt Lake Valley, fur
nished by Mr. Loba, the Mormon ex-High
Priest, whose personal narrative I sent you
the other day, I extract the following facts
and incidents, which I give, of course, only
upon Mr. L.'s authority :
Towards the end of the year 1854, a great
number of Danish Mormons arrived in Salt
Lake city ; but learning very soon how terri
bly they had been deceived, half of them at
least determined to leave for California.—
This resolution they carried into effect the
following March. One or two days after
they left, Heber C. Kimball, in the hearing
of a friend of Mr. Loba's gave orders to a
band of Danites to pursue them in the dis
guise of Indians, and steal their cattle. This
was done, the cattle were stolen and brought
into the city, where half of them were sent
to " The Lord's Storehouse," and the remain
der retained by the Danite plunderers.—
Some of the'unfortunates never reached Cali
fornia, having been murdered by the Mormon
" Indians."
Some years ago the Mormons had a church
store in the city, which contained groceries
and other articles of merehandize to the
amount of $28,000. These had been pur
chased at St. Louis, and were the property
of "the Church," and, of course, under the
control of the Prophet. This store was in
tended strictly for the benefit of the Mor
mons. At the end of the first business year
a deficit was discovered of $15,900. Brigham
Young therefore inquired of the storekeeper
whether he could not establish a balance.—
The answer was in the affirmative, and the
balance was struck so as to cover up the
wholesale thieving. Of course nobody dared
to investigate and expose the fraud, for his
life would have been the forfeit of any such
Brigham used to say upon the stand that
his brothers Joseph and John were twenty
times better " Saints" than himself. Let us
see what this means. In 1854, a member of
the Mormon church, named Williams, had a
claim of sixty dollars against those gentle
men, for which he demanded payment. The
brothers told him that as he was about to
pass on their ferry-boat with some cattle on
his way to California, they would pay him
in ferriage. Williams assented to this, the
Young's promising that they would instruct
their agents at the ferry in regard to the ar
rangement; but when Williams reached the
stream, he was shown a letter directing the
agent to require the ferriage money in cash.
On his return from California, Williams com
pelled the Young's to a settlement. But this
enforcement of his rights led to his bitter
persecution, so that in April, 1857, he was
compelled to flee in order to save his life—
having, in the meantime, been expelled from
the church. You will remember that your
interesting Utah correspondence, early last
summer, or in the spring, noticed the perse
cutions of this same gentleman.
In the year 1855, the notorious Bill Hick
man- and young Hatch—two " Destroying
Angels," received orders to destroy a certain
individual. Hatch divulged the secret, and
Brigham accordingly decided upon his 'de
struction. Accordingly, Bill 'Hickman shot
him, not long afterwards in one of their
night excursions. The wound was not fatal,
and Hickman finished him by poisoning.—
Hatch supposed he was shot by Indians, but
after his death the facts, as above, became
known to the initiated.
Manufactures at the South.
The extent to which manufactures are be
ing introduced at the South is not general
understood here at the North. In Georgia
alone, there are more than sixty cotton fac
tories, while in other States, particularly Al
abama and Louisiana, such factories are cc:
ing continually erected. It is true that these
factories are confined to the coarser descrip
tion of fabrics. But when Massachusetts be
gan to manufacture cotton goods, she also
commenced with the coarser descriptions,
and has only advanced to the finer qualites.
Indeed, for the most delicate fabrics, we are
compelled, even yet, to go abroad. Besides,
it is chiefly the commoner sorts of cotton
goods, such as—the slaves wear, that are in
demand at the South ; and these, on this ac
count, appart from other causes, are what
must pioneer manufactures there. It is a
noticeable fact, too, that Southern manufac
tures, instead of declining, are on the in
crease, a proof that they are no forced exotic,
but a healthy development.
There are causes for this with which North
erners generally are not familiar. A slave
on a plantation can be fed and clothed, in
many States, for sixty dollars a year. If
worked in a factory, he costs rather more,
but his labor is still not so expensive as that
of the cheapest free labor here. There are
many reasons for this, prominent among
which is the fact that no freeman at the North
will work for one suit of clothes yearly, of
cotton jean, and a daily ration of hominy.—
Nor would the climate permit him to dress
as cheaply, even if he were willing, as the
Africans dress at the South, where cattle
live out all winter, where fire wood is plen
tiful, and where meat is less necessary to
sustain bodily vigor. In addition to the slave
element, however, there is, at the South, an
other, Composed of the poor whites, which
will constitute, for generations to come a res
ervoir for manufacturing industry. We have
here at the North, no white population so in
digent, and none, therefore willing to work
for such small wages. On these accounts,
the rivalry of Southern factories is not to be
despised, It is a delusion to suppose that
there can be only an ephemeral competition
from that quarter.
The enlightened patriot, even if, as a North
ern man, he may think the interest of his
own section injured by these Southern factor
ies, cannot but observe their progress with
gratification. The mistake of the South has
been to confine itself too entirely to agricul
ture. Such a policy will, sooner or later, ex
haust any nation. It has been the principal
cause of the comparative decline of the older
slaves States, and it will produce similar re
sults in the new ones, if persevered in, as
soon as their soils become also worn out.—
One of the cardinal maxiums of political
economy is that the producer and consumer
should be brought as near together as possi
ble, for in this way, the profits of middle
me aro saved, and the land enriched by the
refuse of the non-agricultural population.—
Too much attention has been devoted in some
parts of the North to manufactures, and too
little to agriculture, so that, in those places
the healthy balance has been destroyed. In
the South, on the contrary, manufactures
have been too much neglected, with a similar
consequence. The Nvgll-wish er of his cowl-
try, he who is for the whole country, will re
joice to see, in both sections, the harmony
restored between agriculture and manufac
tures.—Philadelphia Leyden
The Woman who Lives without Eating.
We have, says the New York Evening
Post, published several letters respecting this
extraordinary case of suffering ; they are im
portant to scientific men, and painfully in
teresting to all. The following is written by
Rev. S. P. Williams to the Christian Advo
cate :
"Mrs. Hayes is not yet dead. I have seen
her several times. And after reading all
that has appeared in the Advocate in regard
to her, venture to communicate a few thoughts
upon her case. Before she passed into this
peculiar and affecting condition, her health
was for some length of time extremely poor.
She ate but little, and that little occasioned
a considerable amount of suffering. Some
times it threw her into spasms. For nearly
a year before she ceased to take refreshments
altogether, she lived wholly, or nearly so,
upon the juice of dried raspberries, until
that became a source of suffering. Then, for
a time, she took occasionally a small quanti
ty of cold water; and it is now nearly a year
since she swallowed any liquid, to the knowl
edge of any one. Indeed I have no doubt
' that a teaspoonful of liquid, put into her
mouth would be the occasion of her death,
unless the spasmodic action of her throat
should expel it. Any person to see her ten
minutes must be satisfied that there is no de
' ception in her case. Her head and shoulders,
one or the•other, are in perpetual motion.—
She is frequently thrown forward, until she
is nearly doubled together, and then the
head thrown back, and her neck literally
doubled, and the body forced back, and the
whole face, chin and all, entirely buried in
the pillow. This is done several times suc
cessively in less time than I take in writing
it. The last time in the series the face will
remain nearly buried in the pillow, and she
does not breathe for ten or fifteen minutes.—
Once she remained sixty-two minutes with
out breathing. When this is over, and the
spasm passes off, she struggles for breath,
and her head is rolled from side to side al
most with the velocity of lightning for a mo
ment or two; the face becomes red with the
rush of blood to the head, and the skin quite
moist with perspiration. Then the spasm
subsides into a gentle - motion of the jaw and
shoulders, keeping time, as one would think,
with the action of the heart. Her skin about
the face, neck, chest and hands is delicate
and healthy as the skin of an infant. The
pulsations of her blood about the chest, neck,
head and arms, though exceedingly delicate,
are quite regular. Her hair does not grow,
nor is it worn off her head, as one would
naturally suppose, except a little just upon
the crown. The action of the liver is entire
ly suspended, of course. The action and
state of the lungs are perfectly healthy.—
They have been thoroughly examined by
skilful physicians with the aid of a stetho
scope, and are supposed to be perfect. Her
nourishment is wholly from the atmosphere.
The last nutriment, indeed the last swallow
of water she was known to take, was in the
last of June, 1857. The last time she was
known to be conscious was last December.—
When she comes out of these long spasms
she seems to cry for a moment, like an in
fant in distress. At such times her husband
thinks she may be conscious. It is most dis
tressing to hear it. She is not above the or
dinary laws of disease. She has recently
bad a thorough case of the mumps, precisely
as others have them. Her nails upon her
fingers, like her hair do not grow at all."
Pennsylvania and Her Interests.
The people of Pennsylvania are blessed be
yond the people of all the others States,
when we consider them as the posessors of
vast manufacturing, agricultural, and miner
al wealth. Their fault, for years past, has
been indifference to these extriordinary ad
vantages. But at the moment when they
saw others, out of the line of direct commu
nication with the seaboard, preparing to pass
them by, and to concentrate upon rival routes
the trade which should take Pennsylvania in
its way to tide-water, a portion of our citi
zens rose in their might, and built the great
Central Railroad, which is now the envy and
admiration of the whole country. This sin
gle circumstance shows how easy it is for
Pennsylvania to assume and maintain the
foremost attitude in the Confedearcy, if only
she decides to do it. Her safety is in herself
While she is divided as to her own course;
while she doubts as to her duty, her adversa
ries will have their own way in all things,
and she recedes into a subordinate position.
The Southern States make the South para
mount. Everything must give way, with
them, to their own interests. They will
abandon the most cherished cpinions to pro
mote their own welfare. Nothing is required
at the hands of Pennsylvania but a small por
tion of this self-same Southern spirit. If we
look to ourselves a little more, and to distant
interests less ; if we please ourselves, and
care less for the abuse of others, we shall be
stronger to obtain our rights, and stronger
to redress our wrongs. Nor will this be ex
clusion. There is no State more rational
than Pennsylvania ; there is no State less af
fected by faction or fanaticism ; and none
more devoted to the Union, or more attached
to her sisters. We obtain the respect of oth
ers by respecting ourselves. Say what we
may, we all admire South Carolina's inde
pendence and insolation in spite of ourselves;
and though we would not imitate her in ev
erything, we would like to see Pennsylvania
like her in this—in her determination to look
to her own welfare first.
We have a thorough Pennsylvania Gov
ernor, the best we have had for years. 'What
we want next is a Legislature of a high
standard. Our future members of Congress
will not, we think, be the slaves of power,
ready to give up convictions whenever they
are commanded to do it. When these results
are attained, and all work in a common cause
we shall not be as dependent as we are at the
present day. From that moment we assume
and maintain the advance, not in politics on
ly, and but in manufactures, in railroads,
and in all the great substantials of civiliza
tion, prosperity, and progress.—T he Press.
SINGULAR DEATIL—The Baltimore Sun, of
Saturday, relates the following singular in
stance of death, which occurred at the Mar
que House, on Monument street, near For
rest, which threw the whole neighborhood in
a state of excitement. It appears that a Ger
man woman, who, with her husband, lived
in the house, had been ill for some time, and
at two o'clock on Friday morning was sup
posed to have died. Her flesh becoming cold
and her limbs rigid, she was laid out and
prepared for the grave. Those who nursed
her then closed the room and retired for the
remainder of the night. About six o'clock
on Friday morning her husband heard a
noise as of some one calling from the room
where her body lay, and on opening the door
saw her sitting upright in bed. As soon as
he opened the door she called to him and
asked why her child, which was crying in
another room, was not quieted.
He was greatly alarmed, and called for the
inmates to assist him in removing all traces
of the preparations made after the supposed
death. She talked to those around her, and
drank some wine, a cup of tea, and a glass of
water. She had a vague idea of what was
going on while they were laying= her out, but
had not the power to move or speak, and af
ter returning to consciousness asked her hus
band what they had been doing with her af
ter she fell asleep. She seemed much better
than she had been for some days, but about
eight o'clock she died. There were many,
however, who would not believe that she had
really expired, and the superstitious were in
a high state of excitement. The affection
was doubtless a kind of catalepsy, but the
comatose condition was strange indeed, es
pecially as the body presented all'the indica
tions peculiar to death.
Twenty Thousand Indians on the Plains
---Determined Hostilities against the
[From the Fort Smith Times; extra, April 14.]
Col. A. McKissick, agent for the Witchita,
Indians, and Woods B. Rogers, of the Albu
querque expedition, arrived to-day, and we
learn from them that, in consequence of the
hostilities of the wild Indians, and advices of
friendly Indians, the company for Albuquer
que reluctantly abandoned the expedition.
Jesse Chisholm, a half-blood Cherokee,
who has been trading with he Comanches
for twenty years, started a few weeks ago
with goods on a trading expedition to the
Camanche Nation, and after travelling sev
eral days, was met by a company of friendly
Indians, who had been to the place where all
the wild tribes had assembled, and had a
talk with them, and they advised him to re
turn immediately; which he did, as the wild
Indians were very hostile.
They told the friendly Indians that the
great chief, out West, had sent a delegation,
who had told them that this great chief was
to make war on the people of the United
States, and that he was able to poison the whole
atmosphere, and kill the whites off by thous
ands, The wild tribes knowing that the
troops have been withdrawn, are congregated
near the antelope Hills, along the headwaters
of the Canadian and Red rivers, preparing
for a descent on the frontiers. This is a
move on the part of Brigham Young to draw
off the United States troops for Utah to pro
tect the frontier States.
The Indians, on the reserve with Maj.
Neighbors, have all joined the wild bands on
the plains. Near Fort Belknap, they have
killed some of the frontier settlers and stolen
a number of horses. Major Neighbors had
raised a company of whites and friendly In
dians to pursue them.
Chisholm remonstrated with the Albuquer
que company about going on the expedition,
as it was next to impossible to get through
the multitude of Indians between Arbuckle
and Alpuquerque. Their camps and lodges
extend for 150 to 200 miles. The Delewares
-Shawnees, and other friendly Indians also
advised the company to return.
The settlers apprehended trouble from the
eild tribes, and the Kickapoo Indians are at
Fort Arbuckle, intending to protect the prop
erty there. In the neighborhood of Arbuckle
there is great consternation, and the people
live in constant fear, as there never has before
been such a large collection of hostile Indians
in the neighborhood.
Crisholm has sent out a runner, while the
Albuquerque company were there, to ascer
tain the true state of affairs, and the messen
ger brought in a Keechi chief, who informed
him that it was a fact that all the wild In
dians were combined—that war was their de
termination. Delawares arrived at Fort Ar
buckle a week last Tuesday, who stated that
the Indians had already killed several on the
Texas frontier.
War parties were prowling about between
Fort Arbuckle and Fort Belknap, stealing
horses and killing whites and friendly In
Acquittal for Killing a Seducer in Ken
The trial of llardesty fur the shooting of
Grubb, occupied three days of last week, at
Burlington, Boone county, Kentucky. It
will be remembered that a sister of Hardesty
was seduced by Grubb, and that Hardesty
told the seducer that he would give him six
months in which to make bis choice between
marrying the girl and being killed. The six
months expired. and Grubb, not having mar
ried the girl, Hardesty met him, and on sight
shot him. The evidence showed that Grubb
was armed also in expectation of the attack,
but was shot in act of drawing his weapon.
The trial was ended last Thursday, and the
verdict of the jury was not guilty. The fol
