A Remarkable Suicide.
In the Times of yesterday morning
appeared the melancholy announce
ment of the suicide of Mrs. Elizabeth
Haines, wife of Mr. Braxton S. Ilaines,
of Charles City county, which occur
red on Monday last. What could have
been the incentive which led to the
terrible deed is a profound mystery, as
her domestic relations were of the most
congenial character, and she had health
and everything of comfort around her.
Mrs. Ilaines had only been married a
few months. She was a Miss Goddin,
and was the niece of Mr. Wellington
Goddin, of this city. The particulars
of the distressing affair are as follows:
On Monday morning, after the family
had breakfasted, Mr. Haines repaired
to his sitting room for the purpose of
arranging some accounts, and shortly
afterwards called his wife to assist him
in so doing. She made no reply to the
request, but asked him where his pis
tol was. On being informed that it
was in a drawer, she took it out and
asked her husband to load it for her.
He declined, and inquired what she
wanted it loaded for. Her reply was
that she intended killing herself, and
if he wouldn't load the pistol for her
she would do it herself. Mr. Haines
paid no attention to this remark, and
continued making out accounts till he
was interrupted by his wife the second
time, who asked him to tell her why
the ball wouldn't go down the barrel
of the weapon. lie took it from her,
and finding that the bullet was too
large, trimmed it off so that it would
fit, and then handed it back to his wife.
Subsequently, upon her reiterating the
threat that she would kill herself, Mr.
Ilaines aske 1 her to give him the pis
tol, but she refused to do so, and it was
only after a struggle (hat he again se
cured it. This time Mr. Ilaines wont
to the porch, fired off the weapon and
returned it to the drawer where he
had been in the habit of keeping it.—
Soon after, his wife again got the pis
tol and sat down by him to load it, af
ter accomplishing which she handed it
to her husband and asked him to cap
it. Knowing that she bad frequently
indulged in pistol shooting, he thought
nothing of her saying she intended to
commit suicide, and accordingly put
the cap on the weapon and handed it
back to her. Mrs. Haines thee left
tho house, and her husband proceeded
with his accounts. Shortly afterwards
he heard tho report of the pistol, and
immediately ran to the door to see
what had happened, when the first
sight which caught his eye was Mrs.
Haines, with uplifted arms, running to
wards him and crying 'Save me.' He
caught her as she was about fainting
and bore her into tho houso, where she
lingered only about fifteen minutes be
fore she died. Previous to her death
she called lor water, but was unable to
swullow any, owing to profuse hemor
age from the lungs. Upon examina
tion it was ascertained that the fatal
missile had entered the right lung and
passed obliquely down towards the
spine. She assigned no reason for the
strange act, and her last words to her
husband were those of endearment and
importunities for him to save her.—
From a little son of Mr. Haines, who
was witness to the affair, it seems that
as soon as Mrs. Ilaines left the house
she went into the garden, and after
walking around tho pathways several
times with the pistol in her hand, she
then put it to her breast, and, bidding
tho child 'good-bye,' fired the fatal
shot.— Richmond April 20th.

LOVE, LIKE THE GRAVE, A GREAT LEVEL
ER— DAUGHTER OF AN ARISTOCRAT
ELOPES WITH A MECHANIC,
Some time ago a wealthy gentleman
of this city (who had once followed
the river for a profession, but had re
tired from active life on his wealth
and his laurels) employed some car
penters to repair his palatial residence.
Ho has (or rather had, for she now
isn't his'n)a beautiful and accomplished
daughter. She saw one of the hands
(we aro requested to suppress real
names for obvious reasons, and will
consequentlj 7 substitue fictitious in or
der to preserve the unities of our story)
who is a model of manly beauty. She
looked upon him and loved him. There
is a species of electricity between two
young hearts. When the attraction
begins it is neither centrifugal norcen
tripetal, but both, and a good deal of
each. She saw that lie was too modest
to make the first advance, and so she
broke the ice by inviting him into tho
dining room topartakeof refreshments.
She drew him into conversation, and
bacame satisfied lie was no fool. In
deed he possessed graces of person,
mind and character that might well
have been envied by man} - a scion of
aristocracy who would he offended if
a mechanic passed between them and
their nobility. She knew that her
lover (for ho acknowledged that he
returned her passion) would not be
allowed to enter the parental residence,
and so, when she met him on the street
sho not only recognized him, but ac
tually made appointments for him to
meet her on the street and accompany
her to a certain fashionable church, of
which sho was a member and constant
attendant. Thus it went on, in stolen
interviews, until last Tuesday night,
when she left her father's roof and
eloped with her mechanic lover. They
were traced to Jeffersonville yester
day morning, hut too lato to arrest
their flight They have gone to Cin
cinnati or some other point east, and
ere this have been joined in the holy
bonds of wedlock. Of course there
was a good deal of excitement and a
good deal of mortification in the fain
ii>'; hut we advise her parents to make
the best of that which cannot be helped.
Wo have taken some pains to inquire
into the young man's character, and
we assure them that they have secured
one of nature's noblemen for a sou in
law, even if ho is a mechanic.—Louis

Jloyal palaces are rarely the homes
of high virtue or true happiness, and

to have been impatient of the burdens

The daughters of George 111 were

just after they had left the place, and
found their work and their books lying
around, and everything looking like
the home of a private family. The wife
of an officer in the army, who had
apartments in Windsor Castle, said
that the princesses would escape into
her room sometimes, and beg for a
glass of beer to quench their thirst,
alleging as a reason for their doing so,
that if they asked for it in their own
home, they must wait for a barrel to
be tapped, arid that would cause a new
office to be created, for serving beer
to them between meals, and that bar
rel would become the perquisite of
some one of the household, and a fresh
barrel of beer would be tapped every
time a glass of beer was called for. So
great was the discomfort of a royal
household in those days. The groat

A Curious Lawsuit.
A Western paper says that in 1863,
at the time of the New York riots, au
old School Presbyterian minister,
named Richard Curran, formerly of
Huntingdon Co , went to the village
of Huntingdon, Indiana The old gen
tleman had long been noted as a very
ardent, ultra Democrat; in fact, a cop
perhead. He had refused to preach
under the stars and stripes, and was
generally considered disloyal. On this
occasion his daughter, who was with
him, went shopping in Wabash, and in
a dry-goods store met a lady, the wife
of a soldier who had just returned from
\ icksburg, Mississippi. Tho minis
ter's daughter wore a 'butternut' on
her watch chain, and, getting into an
altercation with the soldier's wife, told
her she was a 'butternut,' and she
'thanked God for it,' whereupon tho
former snatched the offensive emblem
from the chain, and in so doing, broke
it. The minister's daughter called
upon her father for assistance, when,
according to his statement, he was set
upon and beaten by the surrounding
crowd, and compelled to leave town
in a carriage to avoid further injury.
For this treatment, and loss of 8100
from his pocket during tho row, he
claimed 85,000 damages.
'The parties against whom this ac
tion was brought, admitted that the
soldier's wife did remove the 'butter
nut,' but denied that they in any way
ill-treated the old man or encourged
others to do so. The case came up in
Logansport, under a change of venue,
and on the trial the plaintiff was repre
sented by Milligan, of' Sons of Liberty*
notoriety, and Coffroth, late Democrat
ic candidate for Attorney General of
Indiana, while the defendants counsel
were Mr. Conner, of Wabash, and
Messrs. Pratt and Chamberlain, of
Logansport. Thejury were out thirty
six hours, and at last returned a ver
dict for the plaintiff to the amount of
8100, the amount of money lost, but
nothing for the pin or wounded digni
ty. The defendants have filed a mo
tion for a new trial.'
A Sad Mistake.
People not well posted in biblical
lore should be a little careful how they
quote from memory. "V ery grave mis*
takes have occurred belore now; but
the following, told by Mark Twain,
shows conclusively that different com
mandments refer to different things,
and that the captain unwittingly made
a confession :
'Why, Captain, you appear to have
a very bad cold.'
'Yes, madam,' said the captain, who
is fond of working in his garden early
in the morning, in his shirt sleeves, 'I
suppose I deserve it. I caught it while

to enter so much into particulars!'

The following sketch of Senator Sauls
bury is from a lady correspondent at
Washington: 'A portly, handsome
tnan, with curling, black hair, dark
eyes and handsome feature. A man
endowed by nature with generous im
pulses and a kind heart, yet a man
prejudiced, passionate and ungovern
ed, who loves caste and hates equality.
I have seen two pictures of him, never
to be forgotten. One, near the close
of last summer's session, when clothed
in handsome broadcloth in his right
mind, with a prayer book in his hand,
I met him with Mrs. Jefferson Davis
(who was clothed like an Empress,)
going to church. The other, not many
days ago, when he staggered down the
avenue the saddest of all sights, an in

B®, J udge , who is now a very
able Judge of the Supreme Court of

when he first 'came to the bar,' was a
very blundering speaker. Ou one oc
casion, when he was trying a case of
replevin, n volving the right of prop
erty to a lot of hogs, he addressed the
jury as follows :
'Gentlemen of the jury, there were
just twenty-four hogs in that drove
just twenty four, gentlemen, exactly
twice as many as there are in that jury
box !' The effect can be imagined.
