Love and Jealousy.--Tragedy in Franklin
Square---The Romance of Crime.
[From the Phil:tea. Press, May 14.]
A great excitement was yesterday created
in the neighborhood of Sixth and Vine streets,
by a fatal tragedy which took place in Frank
lin Square, at ten o'clock in the morning, in
full view of merry groups of children, and
persons who were sauntering beneath the
shade trees. The tragedy was enacted almost
beneath the spray of the beautiful fountain
which adorns the centre of the park. It re
-in the suicide of a man, and the wound
ing of a woman ; both results being accom
plished by a revolving pistol in the hands of
the former.
To go back to the beginning of the story,
we first introduce a young man named George
F. L. Goodwin, the suicide in this instance.
Goodwin was twenty-three years of age, a
barber by trade. He came from Boston, Mas
sachusetts, where he was raised. He has a
mother, and also a wife and two children,
who resides at No. 82 East Cedar street, in
that city. Of his further antecedents we
know nothing, except that, two years ago, he
came to Philadelphia, and obtained employ
ment with Mr. Dollard, a highly respectable
perruquier in Chestnut street, opposite the
State House. Goodwin brought with him a
handsome, showy-looking female, now twen
ty-four years of age, whom he represented as
his wife. This person, it has now been as
certained, is named Anna Garland, and was
brought up at Lynn,Massachusetts. Of their
previous history, or how they came together,
nothing is known, as it was not suspected, un
til recently, that the relation existing between
the parties was other than legitimate.
Upon their first arrival in this city, they
boarded for a while. They afterwards went
to housekeeping in the vicinity of Fourth and
Pine streets, and, last of all, to Sixth street,
corner of Morris's court. Their experience,
however, was like that of all who trample
upon the commandment, and roll sin as a
sweet morsel under their tongues. Each was
jealous of the other, and frequent bickerings
rendered their habitation a place of misery.
The fruits of a life like theirs—which al
ways mature sooner or later—appeared about
three weeks ago. Upon returning to his
domicile, one evening, Goodwin found that
his " wife"—Lizzie Marshall, she called her
self—had gone to Massachusetts. This act
almost crazed the unfortunate man. He re
turned to his work at Mr. Dollard's ; but, be
ing in a state of distraction, he relinquished
his situation, and set about a search for his
truant paramour.
It here becomes our painful duty to state
that an intimacy had for some time existed
between Lizzie and one Samuel W. Randall,
an agent for a New York manufacturing jew
elry concern, whose office was just opposite
their residence. We are informed that, du
ring Goodwin's absence, Randall was fre
quently in Lizzie's rooms, the matter being
generally remarked by other persons occupy
ing the same house, who did not then doubt
that Lizzie was the wife of Goodwin, and were
greatly scandalized at such conduct.
It is difficult to proceed further, for in the
language of one of his fellow-workmen,
George was a good fellow, but the biggest
liar in the world." It seems that in pursuit
• of the woman Goodwin went to Boston, but
not finding her there went to New York. He
wrote from French's hotel, a few days since,
to a friend in this city, that Lizzie was with
him in that hotel. Lizzie must again have
forsaken him, for she was seen in company
with Randall last Monday night. Goodwin
arrived in this city on Tuesday night. On
- Wednesday he went to his old place of busi
ness. There he displayed two pistols. One
of these had three barrels, all of which were
loaded, and the other two barrels, of which
but one was charged. He said that the for
mer bad been presented to him by a female
friend in Ogden street, and asked several of
his late fellow-workmen to purchase the latter.
On Wednesday night he was at the American
House on Chestnut street. He lounged about
the sitting-room until one o'clock yesterday
morning, when he was turned out by the
watchman attached to the premises.
It is stated that Lizzie, after arriving in the
East, wrote to Randall to bring her back to
Philadelphia. Randall went on and brought
her back. They returned on last Tuesday
night, and stopped at Blooclgood's Hotel.—
On Wednesday, Randall obtained board for
her at No. 112 Arch street, her whereabouts
being studiously concealed from Goodwin.
We now come to the tragedy in Franklin
Square. By preconcerted appointmen Good
win, Randall, and Lizzie, met at 10 o'clock.
Goodwin was dejected and melancholy. The
parties walked around to where there were
some stools, and Lizzie sat down. liar dell
and Goodwin shook hands. Goodwin asked
her if she would live with him ; she replied
that she would not, as he did not treat her
well. She said, " did you not tell me you
would keep me without work, and did you
not take me to a lewd house on Harrison St.,
New York, and say you had worked long
enough for me, and that now I must work for
you ?"
This Goodwin vehemently denied, but did
not further urge her to remain with him.—
He then asked her if she could not give him
some parting gift. She replied "yes," and
took from her linger a ring, which she placed
on his. He then requested Mr. Randall to
retire that he might have some private con
versation with the girl. Randall then walked
a short distance off and leaned against a lamp
post, looking towards the Vine street gate.—
In a moment his attention was attracted by
the report of a, pistol, and turning around,
Lizzie exclaimed, " My God, Sam, I'm shot."
Randall turned around and said to some by
standers, " arrest that man, he has shot a wo
man." Goodwin then looked at Randall, and
the latter, thinking he intended shooting him,
made off. Goodwin then threw his head
back, and looking up, shot himself through
the body. The woman fell at the moment of
the discharge, but was on her feet again in an
instant. Not so with Goodwin. His wound
was past the means of cure.
The wounded woman was carried into the
drug store of Mr. George C. Bower, at the
corner of Sixth and Vine streets, immediately
in the vicinity of the spot, where every pos
sible attention was shown her by the kind
hearted proprietor and his assistants: Seve
ral physicians soon appeared, and the wounds
of the injured woman were examined. She
had been shot in the breast and abdomen,
three shots - entering the body. One passed
out after inflicting a slight wound, the force
of the bullet being broken by a thick whale
bone corset-board ; a second was extracted by
the physician at the time, but the third was
not removed until some hours afterwards.—
She was taken in a carriage to No. 112 Arch
street, and placed under the care of a. phy
sician by Mr. Randall.
Goodwin was carried in an insensible con
dition, to the station house, in Cherry street,
between Fourth and Fifth. He survived near
ly an hour and a half, but could not articu
late a word. His eyes were rolled back, and
he lay motionless, except that he raised his
head from its pillow with a convulsive move
ment, just as his soul sped into eternity.
Upon denuding the body of the deceased,
a single bullet hole was found just under the
left breast, but the ball did not come through
his body. A portrait of the miserable wo
man, Lizzie, was found upon his person. In
his pocket was the following singular docu
ment, which we give verbatim et literatim.—
It was rudely scrawled upon rough paper,
with lead pencil :
NEW YORK, May 10, 1858.
in case I George Frank L Goodwin should
die under any circumstances I wish my Body
to be conveyed to my mother who lives at 82
West Cedar street Boston Mass
in Life I loved with my whole soul one who
proved Heartless to me but feeling that I must
die of a broken heart, with my last breath I
die giving her my full forgiveness for all the
agony she has caused me and I never have
since knowing her ceased to love, nay to Idol
ize her. lam speaking of Lizzie—known as
Mrs Lizzie Goodwin and may God forgive her
as I now do.
I have on my person as jewelry-2 breast
pins connected by a small gold chain, 4 shirt
studs, 2 gold rings, one a small one'given me
by Lizzie, and which I do not want taken off
my finger, but bulied with me—the other a
large seal one I wish given to Louisa; my
two pins I wish given to Lizzie; I have on
me also a silver watch and gold chain, and

W. Randall, and a book charm, and a picture
shut up in it, and about 2S dollars in specie.
which all I have not herein given to others I

my Largo Seal Ring I want given to Louisa
(his wife) who Lives at my mothers in Bos
ton and may she prosper and be happy.
I ask forgiveness of all mankind and if I

may God Have mercy on my soul.
Sarni W. Randal of Philadelphia has said
he would kill me for revenge and he may do
so if he does he will only rid me of a Life
which has become hateful to me.
it is hard to think a man Like Saml. W.
Randal has sworn to take my Life.
The following letter, also found upon his
person, proves that Goodwin really was with
Lizzie in New York as he stated:
New york Friday 4 o.
Dear George
Ihave had an invitation to go out
to high Bridge this afternoon and I hare ex
cepted I shall be at home at about 10 o'clock
this eve we are a goin to have a Supper out
there so good by till I come horn
dont fret about me
The Coroner held an inquest at the station
hosue, which was surrounded by a crowd of
two or three thousand people. There was
little need of testimony. That of Randall
was all-sufficient. lle made a long statement - ,
from which we learn that he knew the par
ties some time ago, when they resided near
his place of business, No. 4 Library street.
Goodwin, he'said, used Lizzie very badly.—
Randall was going East some three weeks
ago, and he testified at her own request he
took Lizzie to Lynn, Massachusetts, where
she had relatives. He stayed two weeks at
Lynn and then came to New York ; he then
met Lizzie, brought her on to Philadelphia,
and established her at Bloodgood's hotel.
Goodwin was greatly troubled about Liz
zie's leaving him, and often wanted to see her.
Randall went on to testify :
I hoard in Ninth street, opposite Morgan ;
I knew the deceased; I saw him this morn
ing before the occurrence, and had a conver
sation with him.
Lizzie lived with Goodwin as his wife until
three weeks ago. At that time Goodwin said
to her, that he had been working long enough
for her, and she must now work for him. He
took her to New York for the purpose of
placing her in a house of ill-fame. She sent
for the witness, Randall, and he went to New
York after her. lie brought her to this city,
and stopped at Bloodgood's Hotel, and then
secured lodgings for her at 112 Arch street.
On Wednesday he received a letter from Good
win, requesting Randall and her to meet him
in Franklin Square yesterday morning. The
arrangement was to meet him there, near the
southwestern gate. Accordingly, Lizzie and
Randall went to the square yesterday morn
ing at the appointed time, and not seeing
Goodwin, walked around.
Lizzie said, " I guess George will not come,
and there is no use of my seeing him again."
We met him, Itandall continued, near the
Sixth street gate; Lizzie went towards him,
and he put his hand in his pocket; I said,—
"Be careful, or he will shoot you ;" they
(Lizzie and deceased) then sat down on two
stools ; I went up and shook hands with him ;
deceased asked her if she was going to leave
him ; she said yes ; he then asked her if she
would not live with him again ; she said no—
that he had treated her too badly while they
resided together; he then asked her if she
did not say, in New York, that she would
keep him ; she said, " That is a lie—you said
you had worked long enough, and that you
were not going to work any more, that you
wanted me to keep you."
She also said she did not wish to be a com
mon woman.
Ile then asked her if she would not give
him a parting gift; she said yes, and took a
ring from me which she had previously had
on her finger, and gave it to him. Deceased
then asked me if I would leave them for a
few moments ; I told him certainly, and went
across the path to a lamp-post, and watched
them, thinking that something was wrong.—
I then made a step forward, and heard a pis
tol shot and her cry " Sam, I am shot !"
Deceased then came towards me, and I
cried out to some who were-running around,
to arrest him, as he had shot the woman ; I
thought the he was going to shoot me and
stepped back about four feet ; he then went
back, threw up his head and shot himself.

Public Morals Indispensable to Public
[From the Delaware Gazette.]
There is so much that is excellent and ap
propriate to the times, in the following arti
cle from the New York Day Book, that we
transfer it to our editorial columns:
" All times and all nations generate a nu
merous class of discontented people, some
with and many more without reason. Par
tiality to our own faults prompts us to ascribe
the evils we suffer, real or imaginary, to any
cause rather than our own vices and imper
fections. But can any vice reign long, or is
its reign only for a season ? The Supreme
Governor of the world will vindicate His au
thority, and though this does not always hap
pen. within the short compass of human life,
yet national vices have been corrected by na
tional calamities, and there is not in the
whole compass of history a single example
of an empire or a republic being utterly
ruined until the nation had become incura
bly corrupt and depraved. To this cause we
may trace the downfall of the Assyrian, Per
sian and Roman empires, Bast and West,
and from the same source sprang the ruin of
the Grecian republics, from whose fate has
been drawn arguments to prove the total in
capacity of man for self-government, and the
absolute necessity of force to restrain him
from violating those very laws he has volun
tarily imposed on himself.
The absence of morals has been at all
times fatal to liberty, for true liberty is no
thing more than a voluntary submission to
the dictates of reason and justice. What are
laws without morals ? Of what use are the
wisest and. best laws if the people will not
submit voluntarily to them, and their obedi
ence cannot be enforced, or their execution
must fall into the hands of public officers
even more corrupt than themselves? What
then will avail the superiority of our Consti
tution, if the virtues on which it was founded
do not continue to support its influence and
maintain its authority ? The idea of liberty
would only serve to delude us with an ima
ginary phantom, because its real excellence
must ever be dependent on the hearts and
minds of the people corresponding with the
laws. Were the people of the United States
to lose their virtue, they would lose their lib
erty also, however intelligent they might be,
for it is not mere knowledge that renders
men either capable or worthy of its enjoy
In proportion as disobedience to those
laws, divine or human, by the due obser
vance-of which the Constitution has hitherto
been maintained without any material viola
tion, becomes an ordinary characteristic of
our citizens, must be its tendency towards
dissolution, since the absence of what was
necessary to its formation will inevitably
produce its overthrow. A nation which has
not virtue enough to be governed by the dic
tates of reason and justice ought never to
aspire to self-government, since those who
cannot govern themselves sufficiently to re
strain their own vices must be totally unfit
ted for restraining those of others. When
such is the case, when reason and justice are
insufficient to protect the rights of person
and property, society must be dissolved or
force must be employed to keep it together.
Thus liberty is lost, and when that is the
case, it is no exaggeration to say the nation
is undone.
No State so formidable as this of ours, has
ever fallen, except under the weight of its
own vices. Great empires have been dis
membered, and great nations absolutely an
nihilated, not so much by the pressure of
outward force as by inward corruption and
decay. Civil discord, the legitimate offspring
of impiety and immorality, necessarily calls
for some coersive measures, and the mainte
nance of order becomes incompatible with
the enjoyment of freedom. Thus it seems
evident that the Almighty has decreed that
temporal felicity to nations, as well as eter
nal rewards to men, is the weed of virtue
When unanimity in patriotic feelings ceases
to prevail in the hearts of a people, how can
they long subsist without the cement of arbi
trary power ? Public spirit is not confined
to the present moment. Its sphere is ages
past, and its anticipations comprehend the
immeasurable future. We have, it is true,
no certainty as to deviation of the world, and
as little can we do to presume on the con
tinued existence of a particular nation, how
ever wise its government, prosperous its pres
ent condition, or auspicious its future desti
ny. Still less can we speculate with any de
gree of certainty or even probability on the
duration of the life of a single man; consid
ered as separate from a community, he is no
thing, a thing of no account, and he passes
away as a shadow ; but when viewed as a
member of society, though only an atom, he
is an indispensable constituent of the uni
verse; he exists as long as time and partakes
of a glorious immortality.
We think the people of the United States
have been rather too much in the habit of
considering the acquisition of learning and
the pursuit of knowledge, as all that is ne
cessary to the preservation of liberty. But
learning and knowledge are not virtue, nor
can they by themselves sustain the great fab
ric of freedom. No one, for example, we be
lieve, doubts that the people of the United
States are, as a body, better educated and
more intelligent than any nation that ever
existed. But are they more moral in their
principles, or more virtuous in their actions?
Alas ! we fear not. When we look around
and see such a wide-spread disregard of the
laws of the land and the sanctity of the Con
stitution; when we look into the news-papers
and shudder at the increasing multiplication
of murders, assassinations, seductions, abor
tions and rapes ; when we see these violators
of the laws of God and man either left un
molested to repeat their atrocities, or, if ap
prehended, nine times in ten escaping pun
ishment, apparently through the secret sym
pathies of juries, judges and governors, abu
sing the pardoning power, and when in ad
dition to all those melancholy evidences of a
rapid downhill course to perdition, we wit
ness the breaches of trust, the robberies, the
defalcations, and the impunity enjoyed by
public officers, bank directors and others,
who, from their position, should set an ex
ample to their countrymen—when we seo
all this. and worse than this daily before our
eyes, may we not justly tremble for the ulti
mate success of our great experiment of self
government ? Will not those who believe
that virtue is absolutely essential to liberty
shrink with dismay from the prospect before
them, and prepare to hug the chains that
would thus seem necessary to prevent the ti
ger man from preying on his fellows ?"

The Growth of our Cities, Old and New
Boston was trying to grow nearly one hun
dred years before it attained a population of
ten thousand ;
Albany was two hundred years ;
New York was one hundred and thirty
years ;
Philadelphia, settled sixty or seventy years
later, grew much faster than the older cities,
and arrived at the dignity of ten thousand,
in much less time, that is, in about fifty
years ;
New Orleans was about one hundred years
old before she had that number;
During the first hundred years after the
settlement of Boston (1630) she was the lar
gest city in the colonies ;
New York became as populous as Boston,
just before the Revolutionary War ;
Philadelphia has taken the lead of both her
older sisters many years before the War ;
About 1811, New York became as populous
as Philadelphia, each containing one htin
dred thousand inhabitants :
Baltimore overtook Boston, about the year
1800 ;
The principal new cities grew to the num
ber of 10,000 nearly as follows : Pittsburg
in 15 years; Louisville, 50 years; Cincinnati,
22 years ; Cleveland, 40 years • Detroit, 45
(counting out its French and Indian period;)
New Albany, 35 years; Chicago, 12 years ;
and Milwaukee, 10 years.
The above named cities attained to 20,000,
in the number of years from their birth, as
follows : Boston, 163 ; Albany, 220 ; New
York, 150 ; Philadelphia, 80 ; New Orleans,
112; Baltimore, about 80; Pittsburg, 75 ;
Louisville, 41; Cincinnati, 30; Cleveland, 45;
Detroit, 52; Chicago, 16; and Milwaukee, 17
If any one will compare the early, with
the late growth of our cities, he Will be struck
with the extraordinary disparity in 'favor of
their recent growth not in the actual augmen
tation, merely, in their proportionate more
rapid growth, as they attain a larger size,
the per cent increasing from decade to de
cade. In a community of high civilization
less than half are now needed, for the culti
vation of the ground, and more than half, find
cities and large towns the best theatre for
their industry and enjoyment. In our coun
try, West and Northwest of the Atlantic
slope, including the Canadas, not over one in
15 live in cities and towns. The other four
teen-fifteenths being engaged in opening new
farms or growing crops. This state of things
is anomalous and cannot long continue. Our
cities will receive, before long, the whole
augmentation, and a considerable number
from the thinning ranks of Agriculture. It
is as certain as any future event dependent
on human action can be that the next ten
years will exhibit a more rapid city growth,
and especially in our great interior
than has ever before been witnessed.—Toledo
