to decide whether it shall bo rcpoutcd

Fur the Bint liino tho system of
free government and tho sanctity of

To the Dmocraoy nf QhU :

our Democratic vote of 1809 would

in a "froo" Sluto under Grant rule :
tllnving just returned from Osceola,

inent of tho impending troubles at thut

some six hundred inhabitants, five dry

swept over the pluce two weeks ago,
and destroyed some twenly bouses,
including a church anil three store
houses, will) their contents. Oscoolu
is the county seat of Missouri county,
Arkansas, and is on tbo Missouri Riv
er, ninety milos ubovo this city. Tho
surrounding country is swampy, and
tho settlement, oxcept an occusioul
cotton or farm plantation of sorcrul
hundred acres, is rather a wild region.
Except by river thoro is no communi
cation with tho place from this city,
und it has neither railroad nor lelo
grnph station, though there is a regu
lar landing for Bleutners. Tbo inhab
itants, except those wbo own farms,
are an illiteruto type, such ns goner

For tho past six years . . . . i

was entirely duo to Iho negroes and

erals so mo hope of changing tbe politi
cal siltiHlion and eventually securing
a less bated sot of county otileiuls.
Tbe principal leuders of tbo factions
woro Murry, the Sheriff of Missouri

Our Slate Citpiiiil, nnd Dauphin
country generally, bus labored under
grout excitement for a year past, ovor
tbo poisoning of two women and a
man by a wealthy and respectublo
f'urmor, named ShnfTner, who resided
near llummelsiown. Ilo was tried
aid convicted of murder in tbo first
degree, last winter, but his attorniea
look bis eeso up to the Supremo Court,
und, that tribunal, after giving tho
cuso ft patient Invest ig.ilion, grunlod
tho prisoner a new trial, llis case
was culled up on the 1:1th, and, accord
ing to tho Ilnrrisburg Patriot, was
disposed nf ns follows :
Kmantinl. Shuffiier, llio convicted
wifo poisoner, pleaded guilty yestor
day afternoon to murder in the second
degrco in Iho three indictments charg
ing him with tho crime of poisoning
bis wives Nancy and Surah nnd bis
paramour's husband, John Sburlnck.
Owing l j the absence of Judge Mum
ma in tbo morning the court was ad
journed until the uftornoon, Tho list
of jurors buving bocb Culled over six-,
ly-scvon answered to their names.
Emanuel Sbaffner, llio prisoner, wa.
brought, into tbe court room shortly
after by Sheriff Hoikel. Physically
he seemed somewhat moro robust than
ut tho first trial, and hi indifference
to bis terriblo position appeared jast
us marked. ,
Soon nf'.cr llio appearance of tho
prisoner tbo clerk of tho court or
dered him to eland up nnd hold up
his right baud.
Tho iudictmont was then read by
the clerk, after which the prisoner
was asked, How say you, Emanuel
Sbaffner, "gnily or not guilty f"
The prisoner replied "guilty of mur
der in tbo second degree."
The iudictmont charging tho pris
oner with tho murder of John Shar
lock was next read, und tbe same que-,
lion asked, when the prisoner replied
"guilty of murder in the second degree.'
4'he indictment charging the pria
oner wilh tbe murder of Sarah Shaff
ner was next read, und tho plea "guil
ty of murdor in liie second degree"
wa put in.
Tbo district attorney stated that in.
consequence of tho prisoner putting
in the plea of "murder in tbe second
degree" in nil tho cases, and tbo endi
of justice being served, the term of
imprisonment being sufllciont to pro
vent bis doing further barm io tbo
community, bo accepted the pleas,
with the consent of the court. Tbo
offer camo voluntarily from the pris
oner through his counsel, and tho
common wealth could notfuil to accept
the offer, ns il would' save iucicuseij
oxpenso lo tho county. .
' llis Honor Judge Pearson stated tbat
it was wilh reluclunco that tho court
agreed to anything ll.ut lookoJ like
compromise, but in consideration of
tho offer, and as the ends of justice
would be attained, the court consonted
lo accept tbo offer and allow the pleas
to bo entered, knowing that the con
finement of the defendut would be of
such a length that ho would havo no
further opportunity of doing harm
to tho community or tho members
Tbo court then asked if the prisoner
hnrl nnytbinir to say why sentenco
should not be pronounced upon him.
He answered in a firm tone, "Noth
ing." Ilo wus then ordered to stnntl
up, whonJudgo Pearson addressed him
in substance as follow :
Emanuel Shaffer ! You bavo put in
the plea of "guilty of murder in the sec
ond degree" to three indictments, and
although you wore indicted for murder
in tbe first degree, nnd were no doubt
guilly,wo have concluded to accept tlio

pily towardayou, although you did not
sho-v liny pily to your victims, t torn

severity of their pains. I did, not bo--
iicvo' that ibero was any one In this
country thai would bo guilty of- poi
soning three different persons at dif
ferent time. It appears from your
own confession that you havo been
guilty of that crime. We would ad

you bavo committed, o far as repent
anoo can go. Insteud of taking your
