The Crimes and Slaughter of an Old Man
Ceuunitted In a Moment of
The Lire and Werk of William Augustus
In noticing Anne Ayrcs's biography of
the late Kev. Dr. Win. A. Muhlenberg,the
New Yerk Tribune says :
The kindly face of the late Dr. Muhlen
berg was net mere familiar in the streets
of New Yerk than were his devoted labors
iu the cauhe of religion and humanity te a
large ciiclc of persons who knew of his
lovely and attractive character only by re re
peit. His life was pns cd within a limited
sphere; of pcifenal ambition he was
wholly destitute ; 110 tincture of selfish
ness mingled with his deeds of pious char
acter ; and though no subject of ecclesias
tical distinction, his diocese included a
larger number of forsaken and forlorn than
that of most of the official dignataries of
the church. He was born a churchman.
Frem the earliest childhood he entered
deeply into the spirit of the Episcopal
year. His sense of the significance of
fast and festival seemed te be in
tuitive. After completing his college
education, he received holy orders
in 1817, at the age of one and
twenty. He commenced his ministry in
Philadelphia, his native place, as assistant
te Bishop White, and after a term of ser
vice in Lancaster, he removed, te the vi
cinity of New Yerk in 1820, te take charge
of the Flushing institute. The prime of
his life was spent in the seclusion of the
school, with no ether remission than the
ordinary vacations. He was within a few
months of completing his fiftieth year
when he began his work in the city of New
Yerk. He was at the meridian of his labor
and as it proved in the perfection of his
powers. His hair had already begun te
whiten ; but his step was rapid, his eyes
brilliant, his strong features full of ex ex
piessien ; and every motion suggestive of
physical health and mental activity. His
whole aspect and bearing betrayed a blend
ing of dignity and modesty, and the be
nign sweetness of his countenance
often caused lemark and inquiry
en the part of strangers who saw
him for the first time. The visitation of
cholera in 1849 determined the establish
ment of St. Luke's hospital, and of the
devoted sisterhood with which the name of
Dr. Muhlenberg is new especially identi
fied. The hospital was incorporated in
May, 1830, and was received with such
general favor, that it was seen decided te
enlarge the sphere of its operations instead
of limiting it te a merely parochial institu
tion, as was at first intended. A large
number of subscriptions were speedily ob
tained, and for the most part in sums far
exceeding the amount usually devoted te
charitable benefactions. St. Luke's hos
pital was net modeled after any European
institution. Like all the creations of its
founder it has a character of its own. In
most hospitals the main purpose is the ad
vancement of science. The essential prin
ciple of St. Luke's is Christian brother
hood, exemplified in loving care for the
sick and needy. Dr. Muhlenberg took up
his abode in the hospital in the summer
of its first year, and from that time, as
pastor and superintendent, he was the
most deveted servant day and night within
its walls. In the beginning of his life at
the hospital he was quartered in some un
occupied rooms in the upper story, where
he used te sleep and spend his hours of re
tirement. He would never be luxuriously
ledged, and had only the plainest accom
modations 111 these rcmote rooms ; little,
indeed, except his arm-chair and writing
table in addition te the common furniture
of the ward. He took his meals with the
sisters at their simple and primitive hours,
conducting the chapel service which pre
ceded the early breakfast, by gaslight, of
course, in the winter months. The hospi
tal under his large and loving spirit seen
unfolded a world of beauty and goodness.
He himself was brighter and happier than
ever before. He grew vigorous in the sun
shine of public confidence. His heart and
genius moved te nobler music, and with
inore uniform elasticity and strength ; his
nature developed under prosperity ; his
sympathies became mere and mere exten
sive ; and his wisdom was mere conspicu
ous, as he advanced iu years. With his
venerable and saintly mien, Dr. Muhlen
berg presented a striking picture as he
went about the hospital in the dignity and
sweetness of a ripe old age. His habitual
indoor dress was a long black wrapper,
broadly bordered with purple, which, fit
ting close te the spare figure, set off hand
somely his abundant white hair, or har
monized quaintly with the low-crowned,
bread -hummed hat which he was accus
tomed te wear along the passages in colder
weather. His presence was a benediction
throughout the house. The lowliest offices
of love were welcomed by him as precious
opportunities of Christian service. One day
after giving a dinner te a peer and half
blind man, just discharged from the
Charity hospital, which he made him eat in
his own study, the maid-servant met him
carrying the tray and empty plates back
te the dining room. "Oh, doctor, doc
tor," she exclaimed, "why did you net
call nic te get these?" "Ne, no," was the
reply, "I am a servant in the Lord's
hotel." Dr. Muhlenberg was in his sev
entieth year when he began St. Jehnland ;
but he was still J'iu full activity of zeal
and power ;" his hair had become snowy
white, and there was a slight steep in his
shoulders ; still he retained his freshness
of spirit and alertness of bearing. He
continued te take his walk of a mile be
fore his half-past six o'clock breakfast,
and always ran up stairs from his study te
the upper wards of the hospital with the
briskness of a young man. The purpose
of St. Jehnland was te provide the privi
leges of a Christian home for a portion of
the worthy and industrious peer who passed
their lives in the tenement houses of the
city. The estate comprises an area of be
tween five and six hundred acres in a
pleasant locality en Leng Island. At the
time of the original purchase in 1866, the
farm was in a state of complete exhaus
tion ; the buildings were dilapidated, there
weie no fences, and the noblest trees in a
fine grove were marked off for felling.
The work of renovation commenced at
once, and in the spring of that year,
several fields were put under the plough,
a printing office was erected and some
cottages were built. A few personal
friends met the cost of the land, and pre
sented gifts of different amounts which
were expended in extensive repairs and
improvements. The cost of maintaining
the place was assumed by Dr. Muhlenberg
himself. In lobs a Heme ler crippled
and destitute children was built by private
charity, and the first inmates were a band
of little convalescents from St. Luke's hos
pital. This gave new life and interest te
the institution, and an arrangement was
after made with the trustees of the hospi
tal, which enab'ed Dr. Muhlcaberg te
sustain the expense of its maintenance, as
his private means had by this time become
nearly, if net quite, exhausted. In the
autumn of 1869 the foundations were suc
cessively laid of the " Beys' Heme," "St.
Jehn's Inn, or the Old Man's Heme," and
the " Church of the Testimony," all of
which were the gifts of private munifi
cence. The portion devoted te St. John Jehn
land, the present condition and prospects
of which are described as of an en
couraging character, forms a valuable and
singularly interesting feature of the vol
ume. As a piece of religious biography,
the work is entitled te the most emphatic
commendation. It presents in a just and
attractive light the example of a rare and
original character, a man without pretence
and without guile, the purity of whose
principles was equalled by the sanctity of
his life, a churchman whose ecclesiastical
tastes were of the most intense form and
whose sympathies were of the broadest
scope, a Christian whose possession of the
beatitudes entitled him te a place in the
calendar of mcdiasval saints, without the
legendary fancies that disfigure their
memory. The work is written with
simplicity, with admirable judgment and
with 'powerful effect.
Hew it Was Dene.
Use Made of Jay Gould's Private Wire.
A. 31. Gibsen in New Yerk Sun.
The conspiracy by which Rutherford B.
Hayes was counted in and Tilden counted
out was concocted in the Fifth avenue ho
tel en the night of the election, Tuesday,
Nev. C, 1876. There were present,
Zachariah Chandler, Geerge F. Ed
munds, Chester Arthur, Alenzo B.
Cernell, and ethers. It was late at night.
The news received from every state in the
union left no doubt as te what the verdict
of the ballet box had been. There was a
possibility, however, of undoing what the
people had done. One man alone could de
cide whether the desperate game could be
tried. That one was Ulysses S. Grant. He
and Den Cameren were in Philadelphia.
Time was precious. Instant and safe
communication must be had with Grant.
Hew was it possible ? There was no train
te Philadelphia till morning. That might
be tee late. It would net de te use the
telegraph wires of cither the Western
Union or the Atlantic and Pacific com
panies because a tell tale record would be
left behind. Jay Gould had a private
wire connecting his house and Philadel
phia. Thither the conspirators hastened.
Jay Gould was aroused, the conspirators
were admitted te his private office, and
their confidential telegrapher began te
hunt up Grant in Philadelphia. It was a
difficult job. Grant and Cameren were
net te be found in their accustomed places.
After much delay they were found and
communictien between the conspirators
at Jay Gould's house in New Yerk and
Grant and Cameren in Philadelphia was
The situation was explained, and the
demand made for troops for Seuth Carolina,
Fle.ida, and Louisiana. He was told that
unless these three states could be counted
for Hayes, Tilden would be the next presi
dent. Te every demand the response came :
"It shall be done."
The next day Grant promulgated his hy
pocritical despatch saying that he would
see a fair count, and no man worthy te the
president would accept it if obtained by
unworthy means. Before this was written
the plans of the conspirators had been ar
ranged orders te the troops despatched,
and emissaries were en their way te Colum
bia, Tallahassee and New Orleans te en
courage the subordinate scoundrels and
supervise the details of the villainy. Simul
taneously came the bulletin of Zach
Chandler : "Hayes has received 185 votes
and is elected."
Whatever doubts there may be as te the
actual result in SouthCarelina and Flerida
there can be none in regard te Louisiana.
The ballets in the boxes gave the Demo
cratic electors a decisive majority. It ap
proached ten thousand. Every prevision
of the law had been strictly complied with
by the Democrats, and te threw out a
majority in a single election district the
returning beard had te violate the statute
in letter and spirit. The law required the
specific acts invalidating the election te be
sworn te by the election officers and noted
by the supervisors of registration. In net
one single instance was this done because
there had net been in the whole state one
solitary act in violation te law. The elec
tion was fair, free and peaceable. Te ob
tain even a basis upon which te found their
frauds it had te be alleged that there was
intimidation six months previous te the
day of the election. Forgery and perjury
supplied the rest. The infamy of the work
which Jehn Sherman, James A. Garfield,
Stanley Matthews and E. W. Stoughten
supervised in New Orleans will amaze and
disgust the remotest generations.
Fratricide, Arsen, Suicide.
A Deaf Mate, Jealous of Uis Brether's Con
trol of the Family Estate, Burns the Man
sion, Kills His Brether and Commits Sui
cide. At Newlands, N. B., there lived three
sons of the late Colonel Drury, who died
in 1836. Anether son, Colonel Charles
Drury, died this year. Of the sons Jehn
was a deaf mute and Edward was deaf also
for several years. Ward Chipman, the
youngest son, who alene was married, is
registrar of deeds. The family is amen"
the most respected and highly connected
in the province. They were wealthy,
and their residence is a beautiful one.
Since the death of Colonel Charles, who
was the- eldest brother and unmarried,
Jehn, the deaf mute, who is seventy-two
years old, and was next te Charles, as
pired te be the head of the family and te
control the property. He was much an
noyed that Ward, the youngest son, had
been left in control by Charles's will. He
has acted strangely for some time past,
but there was nothing te show that he
contemplated murder. On Saturday at 8
p. m. Jehn was in the sitting room with
Ward and two of the latter's children J
Mrs.' Waid was up stairs putting her ether
children te bed. Jehn get up, went out t
another room, lighted his pipe, took some
matches and proceeded te one of the bares
which he set en fire. He then returned
te the sitting room where Ward was
dozing in his arm chair, and fired a thirty
two calibre revolver at him, striking him
in the side. Then he rushed up stairs te
his own room, where he set fire te the cur
tains and bedding. His brother Edward
seeing the flames attempted te enter and
extinguish them. A struggle ensued and
Jehn shot him behind the ear. He walked
te the feet of the stairs and dropped dead.
Jehn then shot himself in the temple and
died instantly. Ward's wound was net
mortal, the bullet having struck the rib
and glanced, and running round and lodg
ing in the back. He will recover, The
flames destroyed the house and numerous
barns, and a little after midnight the
whole place was in ashes. Thousands from
the city visited the scene of the tragedy
and aided in saving the property. The two
old men the murdered brother being
sixty-seven years old were laid together
en the grass beneath the glare of the Uaiues
of their burning home. It was truly a
tragic sight. There is great excitement in
St. Jehn. The bodies are in the police
station. A sister of the deceased is Mrs.
Allen, wife of the chief justice of the prev
