A Frightful Tragedy in Indiana,
A Man Shoots a Woman Five Times,
Beats and Tramples her under Foot,
and then sets her Clothes on Fire.
On Friday morning, about 9 o'clock,
a young man, by the name of Peter
Dittman, formerly a veteran soldier,
went to the house of Mr. ‘Vin. Cash,
in Edinburg, Ind:, and on making in
quiry for a Miss Martha Bennett., was
told that the woman was in the house,
when Dittman entered and passed
through the front room, Caine to where
Miss Bennett was sitting. 'Jere a
conversation commenced, which in
substance, was about this :—Dittman
requeited Miss Bennett to take a walk
with him, when she begged to be ex
cused, stating that she had some wash
ing to do. Hero his demands became
more peremptory, and Miss Bennett
was seen to rise up and go toward Bit
man (who, it seems from the testimo
ny, bad threatened to kill her,) and
implore hinr in the most earnest man
ner not to do so, picturing to his mein
ory how long she had loved him, and
how she had sacrificed everything for
At this moment, witnesses testified
that he pushed her from him with his
left band, and drawing a navy revolv
er, aimed.it at her breast. She caught
his arm and pushed it downward, the
bullet passing through her thigh. Get
ting loose from her grasp, ho again
aimed at her breast, when she threw
up her hand, and received the shot in
the forearm. Rendered powerless, the
murderer, without heeding her plead
ings, want on with his hellish work.—
Aiming at her head, the ball took ef
fect near the ear. The fourth struck
directly above the left eye. Tho fifth
passed through the right cheek.. Here
be stopped firing, and commenced de
liberately beating her with the revolv
er and stamping her with his feet.—
Not yet having glutted his vengeance
on the lifeless body, he deliberately sot
her clothes on fire-!
It would ho proper to state hero that
no person but Mrs. Cash and her little
son were at. home at the time, and Mrs.
Cash's health was so delicate that it
was some time before she could give
the alarm for help. However, some
ladies in the neighborhood came to her
assistance, and succeeded in putting
out the flames, after her body had be
come sadly burned, and her appear
ance too horrible for description.
The murderer, after having set fire
to her clothes, passed out of a back
door, and proceeded to a liquor saloon
kept by a Mr. Mike Maffit, where he
delivered up the revolver borrowed
from Mr. Maffit, and asked for a glass
of whiskey, on which he was seen to
take from his pocket a small package,
the contents of which were emptied
into the glass and drank.
An overdose of arsenic, however; of
ten results only in violent vomiting.
Such was thecase in this instance, and
after a few hours• Pete Dittman was
all right and fully realized the extent
of the crime he had committed, He
was arrested. by the City Marshal, P.
11. Hart, without any resistance or
attempt to escape. A coroner's in
quest was held over the body at 2 p.
m., and a verdict in accordance with
the herein mentioned facts returned.—
The prisoner was then taken before
Esquire Thompson and found guilty
of murder in the first degree. He was
taken to Franklin this evening and
placed in jail to await the further ox'
atnination of the court.—lndianapolis
A WAR RELIC.—The Boston Journal
says : "In a farm house near the Ken
nebec there hangs a frame and glass
containing a piece of blue silk on which
is a gilt star. Its history is this: A
son of the family was one of the color
guard of the 16th Maine regiment at
the battle of Gettysburg. Finding
that they were to be captured, and be
ing unwilling that the flag should fall
into the hands of the enemy, the guard
tore it up and concealed the pieces.—
The piece to which we have alluded
was kept concealed by The young man
during the time ho was in rebel pris
ons, and when ho was released he sent
it home to his father who. had it
ed and glazed. The son was afterward
mortally wOunded at Hatcher's Run,
and the family keep the piece of flag
as a memorial of him."
HUNTINGDON, PA., WEDNESDAY, JULY 18, 1866.
[Correspondence of the Globe.]
STATE CAPITAL HOTEL,
HARRISBURG, July 9,'66. J Y
MR. EDITOR :—A few moments of
leisure being at my disposal this-beau
tifully pleasant morning, it occurred to
me that they might not be entirly lost
in having a little talk with the good
people of Huntingdon county, through
the columns of your widely circulated
and ably conducted journal.
For the last few days the "city of
brotherly love," has been the stage up
on which many different acts have
been performed. At least four changes
of characters were there modestly rep
resented, from the morning of the glor
ious fourth, until the following Friday
or Saturday. The bravo patriotic sol
dier, the noble disinterested fireman,
the crafty, selfish politician, and the
dishonest thieving pick-pocket, were
all on band, participating in the festiv
ities. Of course the grand feature of
the week's bill was the military dis•
play occasioned by the return to the
state of the different riddled and tat
tered flags borne by her numerous reg.
iments, on so many bloody fields, dur
ing the lato unholy rebellion. This
was indeed a. display which caused the
heart of every true lover of his coun
try to swell with emotions of pride and
satisfaction. As you have doubtless
reviewed the Philadelphia papers, it is
not necessary for me to refer, in detail,
to the many interesting and thrilling
incidents which transpired along the
route of the grandest procession ever
witnessed in the Quaker city. To the
honest friends and admirers of our
present most worthy chief magistrate,
Gov. Curtin, however, permit me to
say, that his appearance in an open
barouche was hailed at every point
with the wildest enthusiasm. That he
occupies a place in the hearts of the
honest man of Pennsylvania, second
to no man who over lived within her
borders, was amply demonstrated by
the cheers and applause which rent
the air in Philadelphia on Wednesday,
the 4th of July. At every point the de
voted soldier's friend was recognized.
Each and every of the many thousands
who were in the procession, or throno.•
ed the pavements on either side, did
not, perhaps know him personally, but
all had learned to love him, and en•
deavored to show it.
Another very interesting feature of
the day was the turn out of the soffliers'
orphans, who are now the children of
the Commonwealth, with Andrew G. -
Curtin as their God Father. It has
been often, said that Republics were
ungrateful, but the appearance of these
neatly clad little ones, as their young
voices were poured forth in hozannas
to the flag fbr which their fathers had
shed their blood, indicated unmistaka
bly that if such were true of Republics,
it certainly was not of the good old
Keystone State of our once happy and
glorious Union. These lambs of the
State, as /he Governor has so often
said, belong to the people for whom
their noble sires died, and to them has
been bequeathed the privilege of pro
tecting, fostering and educating them.
This sacred duty there is no doubt will
be most religiously performed, and to
Governor Curtin is duo the credit of
inaugurating the system by which so
many children have been saved from
leading a life of ignorancennd poverty.
That his .life may long be spared, to
occupy positions of honor and useful
ness among those whom he has so de
votedly served, should be the prayer
of every friend of the widow and or
phan throughout the length and breadth
of the land.
The prospects of the Union party,
and its gallant standard bearer, Gen.
Geary, from all the signs, scent excee
dingly promising. The honest voters
of Pennsylvania always did, and al
ways will sympathise vial her gallant
sons who have served their country
on the field of battle.
During my brief stay in Philadelphia,
it was my good fortune to meet sever
al old and prominent citizens of your
ancient borough. • Among these I
would mention A. W. Benedict, Esq.,
and Col. H. H. Gregg, both of whom
have done the State distinguished ser
vice—the former with the pen, the let
ter with the sword. It is a subject of
congratulation to their friends, to
know that their services have been
apprciated. The venerable looking
printer, editor and lawyer, Benedict,
has been frequently honored and re
warded by his political admirers,
while the military department of the
country has most fully acknowledged
the worth and patriotism of our more
youthful friend. Immediately upon
his return home from college, Colonel
Gregg was elected Captain of a corn.
- pany which was attached-to the 125th
regiment., P. V., (nine months men.)
At the expiration of 'this term of ser
vice he received a commission as Cap•
thin in the 13th Pennsylvania, in which
organization ho remained until com
pelled by failing health, superinduced
by hardships and exposure, to resign.
This resignation being accepted Col.
Gregg received an honorable discharge
as well as an invitation to a position
on the Governor's staff, which he is yet
filling with credit to himself and ad
vantage to the State. That ho did his
duty well in the field, is attended by
the fact that the dashing, fighting
General Phil Sheridan, twice recom
mended him for brevet promotions--the
first time when he was a Captain for
a majority, and again for a Lieutenant
Coloneley, To be thus endorsed by
Sheridan, is an honor of which any
soldier might be proud, as he never
recommended undeserving men.
Should these hastily thrown to
gether ideas ho deemed worthy a place
in your columns, you may hear from
mo often, during the summer and fall,
from various sections of the Common
wealth, as I am something of a

• The Late Colonel S. W. Black.
Recovery of his Remains near Gaines'
WasuINGToN, D. C., July 7
Major TV. G. Moorhead.—Will Black
and Captain Grider have found the
Colonel's remains. J. K. floonnEA.d.
Will Black arrived in the city yes
terday afternoon with certain eviden
ces of the recovery of the remains in
his possession. It will be remembered
that in the battle of Gaines Mills, on
on the 27th of Juno, 1862, the Sixty
second regiment was ordered to the
front. After getting into position,
Colonel Black gave the, command,
"Forward, sixty-second PennSylviini
aim," and eve the order had died upon
his lips, he was struck in the foreheod
by a ball from the gun of a rebel sharp
shooter. He fell from his horse, and
was immediately picked up, by his
brother Will and others of the regi
ment. They conveyed him through
the lines of the Ninth Reserves and
Thirty-Fifth Now York, to where Sur
goon James Kerr was stationed. Here
they left the body of the Colonel under
some trees, they paving bean-ordered
to rejoin the regiment, which had been
again ordered forward. The regiment
shared the fhte of the brigade, and was
dispersed by the more numerous ene
my.. The territory in which the la
mented Colonel Black's remains were
deposited fell into rebel hands, and
search could not be made for them un
til many months -Afterwards. It was
Supposed by the members of the regi
ment that the body had been interred
by the rebels, but such proves not to
have been the case.
Captain William Crider and Will.
Black, the only persons who remem
bered the spot where the Colonel was
placed when removed from the battle
field, proceeded thither in the early
part of last week. They went over
the ground as they did on the 27th of
Juno, and underneath the trees where
the body had been placed they found
the bleached bones of the brave and
chivalric Black, still held together by
the remnants of his uniform. The body
had never received burial. The lap.
gels of the. coat were perfect, as was
also the front of the vest, on which re
mained the stall' buttons. There was
a peculiarity in the style of the coat,
known to Will Black and others,which
he immediately. recognized. But the
most conelusive7 evidence'"' as-to the
identity of the remains was found in
the coat pocket.' This was the tatter
ed remnants of a silk handkerchief,
with red ground, and white barred
border, the same the Colonel raised
over the ramparts at Yorktown on its
occupancy by our troops. Mrs. Black
had purchased two . handkerchiefs of
the same pattern, and gave them to
the Colonel on the commencement of
the campaign. One of these was
found among his effects; and has since
remained with the family. The other
he had ou his person, and it was fa.
initial: to many of the regiment, for he
had used it frequently in instructing
his men how to make a tourniquet in
case of being wounded in any of the
limbs. The finding of the remains in
the spot where they wore left by his
brother, and the identification of the
handkerchief and the uniform. combine

their great anxiety has at length been
The . remains have not yet been
brought to the city, but will be some
time this week. The officers and men
of the late Sixty second regiment will

A BARBAROUS MODE or EXECUTION.
—A correspondent of the Bombay Ga
zette, writing from Baroda on the 19th
May, says :
The salient incident of the week bas
been the execution, for treason, of a
subject of the Guicowar. The punish
ment of dragging to death at the foot
of an elephant was the one adopted.
The matter has created a great sensa
tion here, for the victim, though a
Mussubnan, was a man of much Influ
ence and standing. The crime is ailed
ged to have been attempting the life of
the Bhow Sahib—that is the comman
der-in-chief of the Guicowar's forces.
This offence is reckoned as treason.
Some time ago a similar execution
took place as punisherient for an at
tempt on the life of Rao Sahib, the
Prime minister. That was thought
little of, for there was doubt about it;
the culprit cut right through the Rao
Sahib's oliormouspuggeree ' the thick
ness of which alone saved him. On the
present occasion the attempt seems to
have been confined to theory, and the
people declare that the Mussulman
was tortured till he confessed his in
tention, and then executed. He was
dragged all through the city, and some
say that a spark of life still remained
in his battered body, and was crushed
out by the elephant's foot. This is the
regular mode of procedure, bat I do
not know whether it was necessary in
this instance or not, for I need scarcely
say that I did not go to see it. The
people's reports are frequently untrust
worthy, of course, but as there is no
smoke without a fire, there is probably
a considerable foundation for their
story, which is that the real offence
was in forming an alliance with a lady
who had formed ono of the Guicowar's
collection, and was therefore sacred
from the polluting touch of baser men.
The,pair, refusing to separate, were
sundered by force, the chief criminal
executed, and his partner's nose cut
off. There was, I hoar, an accomplice
who was beheaded,

A Husband's Confession.
I never undertook but once to set at
naught the authority of my wife. You
know her Way—cool; quiet, but deter
mined as over grew. Just after we
were married, and all was going on
nice and cozy, she got me in the habit;
of doing all the churning.. She never
asked me to do it, you know, but then
she—why it was done in just this way.
She finished breakfast ono morning,
slipping away from the table, she filled
the churn with cream, and set it just
where I couldn't help seeing what she
wanted. So I took hold regularly
enough and churned till the butter
came. She didn't . thank.me but look
ed so nice and sweet . about it that I
felt well paid. Well,, when the' next
churning day came along she did the
same thing, and - I followed suit and
fetched the butter. Again, and it was
done just so, and I- was regularly in
for it every time. 'Not a word was
said, you know, of course. Well by
and by, this became rather irksome.
I wanted she should just ask me, but
she never did, and I couldn't say any—
about it, so on wo went. At last
I made a resolve that I would' not
churn another time unless 'she asked
me. Churning day came, and when
my breakfast—she always got nice
breakfasts—when that was swallowed
there stood. the churn. I got up,
and standing a few minutes, just to
give her a charm°, put on my hat and
walked out doors. I stopped in the
yard to give her a chance to call me,
but not a word said she, - and so with a
palpitating heart I moved on. I went
down town; up town and all over town'
and my foot was as restless as Noah's
dove—l felt as if I had done a wrong,
I didn't exactly khoW how—bUt there
was an indescribable sensation of guilt
resting upon me all the forenoon. It
seemed as if dinner ,time would never
come, and as for going home ono min
ute before dinner, I would .as 80011 cut
my ears off. So 'I went fretting and
moping about until dinner time. ILome
I went, feeling much as a criminal must
when the j ury is having in their hands
his destiny—life or death. I could not
make up my mind how she would
meet me, but some sort of a storm I
expected. Will you belieVe it ? She
never greeted mo with a sweeter smile,
never had a better dinner for me than
on that day ; but there was the, churn
just where I left it ! Not a word was
passed. I felt cut, and every meuth
full of that dinner seemed as if it would
choke me. She did not pay any re
gard to it, however, but wont on as if
nothing had happened. Before dithier
was over I had again resolved, and
shoving back my Chair I marched up
to the churn and went at it the old
way. Splash, drip, rattle—l kept •it
up. As if in spite, the butter was
never so lone in coming. I supposed
the cream standing so long, had got
warm, so I redoubled my efforts. Ob
stinate matter—the afternoon wore
away while I was churning. I paused
at last from real exhaustion, when she
spoke for the first time.:—"Come Tote;
my dear, you have rattled that butter
milk quite long enough, if it is only
for fun you are doing it." I knew hew
it was in a flash. She luid brought the
butter in the forenoon, -and left' the
churn standing with the butter-milk
in for him to exercise with. I never
set up - for household matters after
LAUGHABLE INCIDENT.-A corres•

PORTLAND, ME., July 4-4 P.
terrible fire is raging hero, having de
stroyed Brown's sugar, house, and is,
sweeping through tho city before a
strong southerly wind.
PORTLAND, 8 A. M. —The fire caught
in the building above the sugar house,
on Commercial street, and has swept
northerly through that street into the
wooden buildings between Center and
Cross streets, consuming everything
as it goes. J. B. Brown & Son's lost
from 8600,000 to 8760,000; insured for
8309,000. Stapler & Son's machine
shop and N. P. Richardson & Co's
stove foundry are completely destroy.
ed. One steam fire engine has, just
come from Saco.
PORTLAND ; ME., July s.—The fire has
completely swept through the city, de
stroying everything in its track so
completely that the lines of the streets
can hardly bo traced for a space of one
and a half miles .long by a quarter of a
mile wide.,.Many perhaps
and fifty, were blown up
to check the flanies,but the inhabitants
could scarcely do Moro than flee with
their families to the upper part of the
city, having such goods as they could
carry. The custom house being fire
proof escapeci,though greatly damaged.
The court records are probably destroy
ed. The splendid city and 'county
building on Congress street, wnich Was
nearly lire proof,. was considered:safe,
and it was filled full of furniture by the
neighboring residents, and then it was
swept away with ell its contents. Half
the city is destroyed, and that half in
cludes nearly all,the business portion,
except the heavy business houses in'
Commerce street. All the banks and
newspaper offices are burned, But
three printing offices are'left.' All the
jewelry establishments, wholesale dry
goods stores, several churches, the tel
egraph offices, nearly all the stationery
stores and a number of business places
aro destroyed. The fire is still raging
below Cumberland street, 'Working
back to the westward, the wind having
changed. Captain Henry Juman has
telegraphed fur 1,500 tents to accom
moclata the houseless families.
A correspondent of the Boston Jour
nal writes from Portland:
The camp is situated upon ono of the
highest eminences surrounding the
thickly settled part of the city, and
from all its points, there can be plainly
seen the towering chimtieys,the smoul
dering ruins and other sad reminders
of what were once happy homes and
scenes of thrift and industry. The
condition of,the poor unfortunates oc
cupying the tented field is, one Aruly
deplorable. Many of them are scantily
clad, and not a few have barely suffi
cient to secure them from expbsure to
the burning suit. The tents which they
occupy are, in a . fetv eases; furnished
with a single bed 'snatched from the
flames;- and there is occasionally
stove and cooking utensil's and a limi
ted supply of broken furniture, all of
which• is highly' pried by tho occu
pants in this great and painful emer
gency. • • • '
In ono of the 'tents which your re
porter visited was a sick 'child, which
its frantic mother said the'doctors had,
pronounced beyond recovery, and in'
another was, en old Woman who had
been driven alinoist ,insanityln . con
sequence of the excitement and - grief
in being deprived of a home which she - .
had occupied in quiet and seclusion
during the last twenty 'years. In an
other tent Which was assigned to a
family of four, there . has been an in
crease to the number of five during the
day, and all - the occupants are getting
along finely. In several of the tents
there are eases of sickness, but the.ills
are generally those brought on by ex
haustion and exeitement. and under
thweare of the attentive physicians of
the city they will soon recover. All'
are well provided with.provisions, and
supplies are constantly arriving in great
abundance. Tho greatest need is cloth
ing for the women and children.
The only standing building visible
for a space of a mile and a quarter
ahead, and a breadth of half amile is
the custom house and post office, and
this is completely ruined. •
There is, however, a small margin
of cheap wooden dwellings spared on
what is known as the "Back Cove."
The jail was saved, although it was
several times threatened with deStruc
tion, and the liberation of confined in
mates was seriously entertained.
There is already a ; strife .among
some of the business men as to who
shall have the honor of first rebuilding
and engaging in :business. The first
part of the city likely to be rebuilt is
Middle street. •
HORRIBLE RETRIBUTION.--The Knox-;
vac, Commercial says
"We have just been shown a private
letter from Floyd . county, Georgia, to
one of our citizens, in which ono of the
most dastardly crimes is made known
we ever chronicled. Three 'ladies
were returning home from a visit to a
neighbor, when a negro came upon
them in a secluded out-of-the-way
place, and attempted to detain thorn
all. Two of them succeeded in getting
away from him; the other one he took
into the woods, and.tied her, and kept
her there two days without food, her
friends finding her at the end of that
time. The negro was caught, and the
lady was asked what punishment she
desired to have inflicted on this do
mon. She replied she wanted his arms
sut off and then wished him skinned
alive. The sentence was executed.
The negro lived about ten minutes af
ter the operation.

terfalls," so Prentice says.
