A little more than fifty years ago, a lean by the
name of Henry Thompson, called at the house of
Mr. J. Smith, a resident in a retired part of Eng
land, and requested a night's lodging. This, re
quest was granted, and the stranger, having tak
en some refreshments, retired early to bed, request
ing that he might be awakened at an early hour
the following Morning.
When the servant appointed hvall him entered
the room for that purpose, he was found in his
bad perfectly dead.
On examining his body marks of viiJneo ap
peared, but his countenance looked extremely
natural. The story of his death soon spread
among the neighbors, and enquiries were made as
to who he was and by what means be came to his
Nothing certain, however, was known. nu had
arrived on horseback, and was seen passing thro'
a neighboring village about au hour before ho
reached the house where he had come to his eud.
And than, as to the manner of his death, so little
could be discovered that the jury returned a ver
dict that he "died by a visitation from Gail"—
When this was done, the stranger was-buried.
Days and weeks passed on, and little further
was known, the public mind, however, was not at
rest. Suspicion existed that foul means had has
tened the stranger's death. Whispers to that ef
fect were expressed, and in the hearts of many,
Smith was considered the guilty man.
The former character of Smith bad not been
geed. He had lived-a loose and irregular life,
involved himself in debt by his extravagance;
and at length, being-suspected of having obtain
ed money wrongfully, he suddenly fled from thO
More than ten years, however, had now elapsed
since his return, during which he had lived at his
present residence, apparently in good circumstan
ces, and with an approved character. His former
life, however, was now remembered, and suspi
cion was fastened upon him.
At the expiration of two months, a gentleman
one day stopped in the place for the purpose of
making inquiries respecting the -stranger who bed
been found dead in his bed. He supposed him
self to be the brother of the man. The horse and
clothes of the unfortunate man still remained, and
were known immediately as having belonged to
his brother. The body also, was taken up i and
though considerably changed, bore a strong re
semblance to him. -
He now felt authorized to ascertain, if possible,
the manner of his death.. He proceeded: there
fore, to investigate the eirchmshmees as well as
he was able. At length he made known to ,the
magistrate of the district, the information he had
collected, and upon the strength of this, Smith
was taken to jail to be tried for the willful murdor
of Henry Thompson.
The celebrated Lord Mansfield was then on the
bench. Ile charged the grand jury , to be cautious
as to finding abill against the prisoner. The ev
idence of his guilt, if guilty, might be small.—
More information might be obtained, should be
be acquitted he could not be molested again,
whatever testimony should rise up against him.
The grand jury, however, did find a bill, but by a
majority of only one.
At length the time of trial arrived. Smith was
brought into court and placed at the bar. A great
crowd thronged the room, eager and anxious to
see the prisoner, and to hear the trial. lie him
self appeared firm and collected. Nothing in his
manner or appearance indicated guilt; and, when
the question was put to him by the clerk, "Aro
you guilty, or not guilty 1" be answered with an
unfaltering tongue, and with a countenance per
fectly unchanged, "not guilty."
The counsel for the prosecution now Opened the
case. But it was apparent that he had little ex
pectation of proving the prisoner guilty. lie
stated to the jury that the case was in groat mys
tery. The prisoner was a man of respectability
and property. The deceased was supposed to
have had about him gold and jewels to a largo
amount; but the prisoner was not so much in
want of funds as to be under a strong temptation
to commit murder. And beeides, if the prisoner
had obtained the property be had effectually, con :
eeatedsit.• Not a tratmalleatuld be found.
Why, then, was the 'prisoner suspected? The
deceased, Henry Thompson, was a jeweler,. resid
ing in London, and a man- of wealth. Ho had
left London for the purpose of Meeting a trader at
Bull, of whom he' expected hi make a largo pur
chase. The trader hs did meet and after the de
parture of the latter, Mr. Thompson was known
to have in his possession : jewels and, gold to a
large amount.
With these in his possession,- Whiff, Hull on
his . return to London. It was not known that he
stopped until he reached Smith's and the neat
morning was discolored dead in his bed. lie
died, then, in Smith's house, and if it could be
shown that he•came to his death in an unnatural
way, it would increase the suspicion that the
prisoner was in" someway commuted with the
Now, then, continued the (*andel, It will be
preyed beyond the possibility of *doubt that the
deceased died by poison. What was that puisonf
It was a recent discovery of some German chem
ists, said to be produecd from distilling the seed
of the wild cherry tree. It'was a poison more
powerful than any other known, and deprived of
life so immediately as to leave no mark of suffer=
lug no contortion of the features. '
But then, the question, when and by whom was
it administered? One circumstance, a small one
indeed, and yet upon it might hang &horrid tale,
was, that the stonier of a small bottle of very
singular description had been found in the pris
oner's house. Thei stopper had been examined,
and said by medical •men to have belonged to a
German vial, containing the kind of 'poison he
had describe& -Ant, then, was that poison ad
ministered by'Sniith; hiainstigation ? who
were the priSoner's family? It consisted only of
himself, a housekeeper and one man servant.—
The mati servant 'slept in an outhouse adjoining
the stable, and did so on the night of Thompson's
death. The prisoner slept in ono end of the house,
the housekeeper at the other, and the deceased
had been put in a room adjoining the house
It could be proved, that about three hours after
midnight, on the night of Thompson's death, a
light had been Seen moving about the house, and
that a figure holding the light was seen to go
from the room in -which the prisoner slept to the
housekeeper's room; the light now 'disappeared
for a minute, when two persons were seen, but
whether they went into Thompson's room, the
witness could not swear; but shortly after they
were observed to pass quite through the entry of
Smith's room, and which they entered, and in
about five minutes the light was extinguished.
The witness would further state, that after the
person had returned with the light into Smith's
room, and before it was extinguished, he had
twice perceived some ark object to intervene be
tween the light and the window, almost as large
as the surface of the window itself; and which
he described by saying it appeared as if a door
had been placed before the light. Now, in Smith's
room there was nothing that could account for
this appearance, and there was neither cupboard
nor press in the room, which, but for tfiebed, was
entirely empty; the room in which he dressed,
being a distance beyond it.
The counsel for the"prosecution here concluded"
what ho had to say. ',During his address, Smith
in no wise appeared to be agitated or distressed—
and equally unmoved while the witness testified
in substance what the opening speech`of the coun
sel led the court and jury to expect.
Lord Mansfield - now addressed the jury. Re
said that in his opinion the evidence was not suf- r
ficient to condemn the prisoner; and if the jury
agreed with him in opinion he would discharge
him. Without leaving their seats, the jury agreed
that the evidence was'not sufficient-
At this moment, when they were about to ren
der a verdiot of acquittal, the prisoner rose, and
addrEssed the Court. - He said he had been accus
ed of a foul crime, and the jury lied there was
not sufficient evidence against him. Was het° go
out of court with suspicious resting upon him, af
ter all ? This he was unwilling to do. Re was an
innocent mem anti if the judge would grant hint
an opportunity, he would prove it. He would call
the housekeeper, who would confirm a statement
which he would now make.
The housekeeper had not appe:tred iu court:—
She had concealed herself or been concealed by
Smith. This.was considered a dark sign against
him, but he himself now offered to bring her for
ward, and stated as a reason, not that he was not
willing that she could testify, but, knowing the
excitement, he was fearful that she would be-brib
ed to give testimony contrary to fact. But ho was
now ready to relate an the circumstances he know;
She might be culled and examined. If her testi
mony does not confirm my story, let me be con
The requestof the prisoner appeared reasonable
and Lord Mansfield, contrary to his usual. prac
tice, granted it.
The prisoner went on with his statement. Be
said ho wished to go out of court, relieved from
the suspicions which were"resting upon him. As
to the poison, by means of which the stranger was
said to have died, he knew neither the name of it,
nor even the existence'of it, until made known by
the counsel. Me could rail God to wiles,* the
truth of what he said. .
And then, as to Mr. Thompson', hi was a perfect
stranger to him. How would he know what ar
ticles of value he had? He did not know. If he
had itieh articles at Hull, he might haio lift them
on the road, or which was more probable, have
otherwit=e,disposed thVit. And if" ho died by
moans of the fataldrug, he must have admiaister
e;l, it himself.
.11e 'begged thejury to remember that his prom
ides" bad been 'repeatedly and minutely searched,
and not the innst trifling article that belongcd to
the deceased had been discovered in his posses
ion. The stopper of a vial had been found—but of
this he could. only say, he bad no knowledge,
and bad not seen it before it was produced in
One feet had been proved; and only one. That
he would explain, and his housekeeper would con
firm his statement. A witness bad testified that
some, one had gone to the bedroom of his housekee
per on the night in question. lie was ready to
admit that it was himself, Ile had been subject
for much of his life to sudden fits of illness; ho
had been seized with one on that oeasion, and had
gone to procure her assistance in lighting a fire.
She had returned with him to his room for that
purpose, he had waited for a few minutes in the
passage, whilesheput on her clothes. This would
account for the momentary disappearance of the
light. After remaining a few minutes In this room
and finding" himself better, he had dismissed her
and returning to bed, from which be had not ris

Such was the prisoner's address, which produc

and idipressive manner, and from the simple and
artless manner of the man, perhaps not ono pre
sent doubted his, entire innocence,
The housekeeper was now introduced and &am
ined-by tho'cOunsel of the prisoner. Sho had not
heard any part.of the statement of Smith r nor
single word of the trial. Iler story confirmed all
he had said.
To this succeeded cross-examination by the'
counsel for the ' proshentiOn. One circumstance
had made a deep impression his mind—that
was that while the prisoner and the housekeeper
were in the room of the former something like a
door had obstructed the light of the candle, so that
the witness testified to the Tact, but could not see
it. What was this. obstruCtion ?. There was .no
door—nothing in the room. 7 —whiet contd . , account
for this.; But the witness was positive that 'genie.:
thing like a 'door did'er a moment beam" hetween
the window and the candle ibis ntoided
nation. the housekeeper was the person that
could givo it. Designing to probe this matter in ,
the end to tho bottom; but not wishing to excite
her slam, he began by asking her a few unim
portant questions, and among , others, where the
candle stood when she was in Mr. Smith's room?
"In the centre of the reom,'''she replied.
"Well, was the closet, or cupboard, or whatever
you call it, ope . ned ones or twice while it stood
there ?"
She made aq
"I will helryour reeollection," said the counsel
"atter Mr. Smith had , taken.the medicine-out of
the closet, did - he shut-the door, or did itremain
"Ile shut IL"
"And when he replaced the bottle in the closet,
he opened it again, did.he
"Ile did."
"And how, long wan it open the bat dual"
"About a minute." •
"Well, and when open would the door be ex
actly between the light and the window ?"
"It woild."
"I forgot," Paid the Maimed; ' 4 'whether you
Raid.thkelmmt.,WVloP;# l e , rightror on the loft

"On the left hand aide."
"Would the door of the closet make- any noise
in opening ?" '
"None.". • • ,
"Are you certain t,.

‘‘.ll.tve you _ever opened it yourself or only
Boon Mr. Smith - open it ?"
"I never opened it myself."
"Did you.ever keep the-key?"
"Who did ?" •
"Mr. Smith, always."
And that moment the housekeeper chanced to
east her eyes toward Mr. Smith, the prisoner.
A cell, damp sweat stood upon his brow, and his
face had lost all' its color; ho appeared a living
image of death. She no sooner saw him than
she shrieked and fainted. The consequence of
her answers flashed across her mind. She had
been so thoroughly deceived by the manner of
the advocate; and the little importance he had
seemed to attach to her statements, that she bad
been led on, by one question to another, till she
had told him all he wanted .to know.
She was obliged to be taken from the court,
and a physician who was present was requested
to attend her. At this time the solicitor for the
prosecution (answering to our state's attorney)
left the court, but no one knew for what purnose.
Presently the physician came into court; and
stated that it would be impossible for the house
keeper to resume her seat in the box short of an
hour or two.
It was almost twelve in the day. Lord Mans
field, having directed that the jury be accommo
dated with a room, where they could be kept by
themselves, adjourned the court two hours. The
prisoner, in the meantime, wairemanded to jail.
It was between four and five o'clock, when
the judge resumed his seat upon, the bench. The
prisoner was' again placed at the bar, and the
housekeeper brought in and led to the box. The
court room was crowded to excess, and an awful
silence pervaded the place.
The eross-examining eoun set again addressed the
housekeeper. "I have but a few more questions
to ask you," said he, "take heed how sun answer,
for your life hangs upon a thread."
'' ,l "Do you know this stopper?"
"I do."
"To whom does - it belong ?"
"To Mr. Smith."'
"When did you last see it ?
At that moment the solicitor entered the court,
bringing with him upon a tray, a watch, two
money bags, a jewel ease, and a bottle of the
same manUfacture of the stopper, and having a
cork in it. The tray was placed on the table in
sight of the prisoner and the witness, and from
that Moment no doubt remained in the mind of
any man present of the guilt of the prisoner.
A few words will bring this melancholy tale to
its close. The house where the murder had been
committed was ',etymon nine and ten miles dis
tant. The solicitor, as - soon as the.cross examina
tion of the housekeeper had discovered the exis
tence of the closet, and its situation, had set off
on horseback, with two-sheriff's officers, and after
pulling down part of the wall, had detected this
important concealment. The search eras well re
warded. The whole of the property belonging to
Mr. Thompson was found there, antounting in
vale, to some thousand pound.; and to leave no
room. for. doubt,- a bottle was discovered which the
medical men instantly pronounced to contain the
very identical.poison which sensed the death of
the unfortunate Thompson. The remit was too.
obvious to need explanation.
Tt scarcely need be added 'that 'Smith was con
victed and executed, and brought to his eyeful
punishment by his own means. Mahe said noth
ing—had be not persisted in calling a witness to
prove his innocence, be might have escaped. But
God tad evidently left him to work out his own
ruin, as a just reward of his awful crime.

Will salt preserve butter ? ' No, that question
is easily answered.. Salt is added to bitter for
reasons—ono is to assist in its preservation, the
dairy-woman vainly thinking that salt will, keep
the butter sweet. Another set add salt with dis
honest motives, with the idea that all the salt put
in the butter is sold at the full price the butter
brings. It is a great mistake. , Every , pound of
salt put in butter over what is required to give it
a flavor, instead of bringing a cash, return to the
butter maker, proves a positive loss of several
rents a pound, because it reduces the value of ev
ery.pound of butter so over salted, frequently as
much se three cents a pound. Butter is not pm.
served by salt. That is positive. It will keep
just as sweet as Olive oil, without salt, if no other
substance Is incorporated with it. It is the case
in milk that spoils the butter, and union free from
that, no art can keep it sweet.
Butter should be chulmed at 65°, and immedi
ately afterwards minced to 40 0 , and the less it is
touched by, human hands the better. It must be
worked cool, either with cr without washing, as
that . iita mooted question, until absolutely free
from butter-milk or particles of sour curd, and
then just enough and not more salt added to suit
the taste of the consumer. The salt must be pure,
and one ounce to ten lbs., of butter wilt be suffi
cient. Then pack the butter solidly in any cask
of sweet wood or stone pot, so as the air is ex=
eluded the butter:will remain sweet. If it could
be .:kept perfectly, excluded, thelkperiod that it
would keep sweet forever. Your question is an.
swered. Salt will not preserve butter.

0 tilt, WO are subject to a redundancy of vitiated bile,

Brandreth's Pills work their way to the very roots of
the disease, cleansing in their passage, removing every
unhealthy accumulation till the blood is purified, the
whole system renovated, and the functions and duty of
life become a_pleasure, where before they had been sad
and weary burdens. Often when nothing has relieved
vomiting of the most serious character, 'whether from

appalling, a eitigie dose of four Brandreth's Pills has at

Brondreth's Theory of Disease.
Never extract blood. Blood is the life. By abstract

lessening the power to feel. And by thus taking away
nature's tools, you may prevent her from fully repairing
the ravages of, inflammation, a convert what might only
have been the sickness of 11, few days or weeks into a
chronic affection of mouths and years.

return to health, you must use Brandreth's Pills, which
