LYIVN, Mass., Dec. 16.—Another and a
most revolting case of wife-murder has oc
curred within the suburbs of Boston. In
this instance, however, retribution follow
ed closely upon the commission of the
deed, and the murderer lived but one
hour after the death of his victim. Tbe
principals connected with the affair were
one William Venner, about thirty years of
age, and his wife, a woman of forty. They
were not much known in Lynn, having
come to the city not long since from the
State of Maine, in the vicinity of Augusta.
Their short residence in Lynn has, how
ever, established the fact that they have not
lived happily together; the man was ad
dicted to drinking, and when in liquor had
a most dangerous and ugly disposition.
A day or two ago Venner told his wife
that he had left off drinking, and obtained
from her about forty dollars in money,
with part of which he bought a large dirk
knife, though for what purpose was not
stated. This morning there seemed no
new trouble between the parties, but, on
the contrary,they seemed to harmonize per -
feetly, so much so that it was noticed by
Mrs. Conway, who went up-stairs about
half-past nine o'clock, and saw them to-
I gether. Venner was eating his breakfast,
his wife was sitting near, and all seemed
to be peaceful and happy. Shortly alter
, this Venner went into. the cellar, and at
about ten o'clock, Mrs. Venner also went
down one flight of stairs, but descended
no farther, as it was on this floor—that oc
cupied by Mrs. Conway—that she met her
cruel death. It is supposed that she had
started to go down stairs and was met by
tier husband, who, coining up from the
'teller, murdered 'Mrs. V err nor with the
`XL le o'clock Mrs. Cur Way, who was
eating .breakfast at the time, heard loud
scream's coining from the entry-way at the
foot of the stairs, which was separated
front her only by one door, and which also
hail a cloor opening on the street. Mrs.
Conway rushed to the door and there be
held a sight which filled her with horror.
Mrs. Verifier was struggling in the grasp
her husband, who held her by the hair
with one hand, while in the other he held
die dirk-knife before referred to, with
which he was dealing murderous stabs
about the head and neck el the poor vic
A moment more and the murderer flung
open the door and walked coolly forth.—

A Cienerou“ Deed
The Alabama papers record a noble deed.
The Legislature of that State agreed to pay
the three lawyers employed in the Stanton
railroad suit at Knoxville, the sum of
.$2.0,000. One of these lawyers was Gen.
James H. Clanton, who was killed, leav
ing his family poor. The other two, Messrs.
Stone and Clopton, of Montgomery. trans
ferred their interest in the fee of $20,000 to
Gen. Clanton's widow. "Such deeds of

The Mormon Question
Delegate Hooper has postponed his de

WASIIINII9ION, December l7.—A delega

led by Judge Kelly, Leonard Myers and
Col. J. \V. Forney, called on the Secretary
of the Treasury, Saturday, to see if some
arrangement might not be had, by legisla
tion or otherwise, to save them from the
imposition of double fees on their import
ed goods. Under the present arrange
ment the goode come through the Now

railroad a bonded warehouse, so they could
get their imported goods direct from New

The hill introduced into Congress by Mr.
Ramsey for the erection of the Territory of
Ojibway substracts for that purpose so
much of Dakota as lies north of 40 degrees
north. The Missouri flows through the
proposed territory, and the North Pacific
Railroad will cross it. Before forming a
territorial government, however, there
ought to be somebody to be governed.
With the exception of soldiers, Indian tra
ilers, and a few settlers iu Chippewa, Ste
vens and Cheyenne counties, there are no
inhabitants but Indians in the northern
half of Dakota. On account of the hostility
of the Indians, the comparativci- poverty of
the soil, and the detestable /water, years
will probably elapse before any important
settlement is formed. The erection of a
territorial government is, under the cir
clUnStiallees, q uite unnecessary.

Cotaparatlve Naval Strength
Could we cope with Spain - at sea? This
is a fair question, and one which implies
no disrespect on our Naval Administra•

a question. The Spanish navy, ready for
action, consists of seventy-three screw
steamers, carrying 73-1 guns; twenty-four
paddle-steamers, carrying 127 guns, and
thirteen sailing vessels, carrying _O2; while
our navy consists of forty-six iron-dads,
ninety-seven steamers, and thirty-two sail
ing vessels, in all mounting 1,3116 guns;
but actually ready only 356 guns. It will
thus he seen that the forces of the Span

TrtnEENkw PATENT,.-John C. Cookson,
of this city, for an improved flour-bolt and
purifier: Aaron Willer and Jacob ,am
ber, for a valuable improvement on jack
for horse-power. This invention supplies
a want often felt for transmitting power in
various directions without change of ma•
chinery. Jeremiah Rohrer, of this city, for
a refrigerator of peculiar capacity and utili
ty for hotels, restaurants, Ac. Each of the
above patents bears date the 12th day of
December, 1871. Obtained through the
agency of J. Stauffer, of this city.
RAH.wAv ACCIDENT.—Wm. Fratz, a
young married man, residing in Middle
town, acting as brakemen on a freight train
on the Pennsylvania Railroad, met with a
serious aEcident near Chlckies,on last Mon
day. ft seems that while in the act of coup
ling cars, be fell to the ground, and was
run over by one of the cars, which fearfully
crushed one of his legs below the knee. Be
is doing well, and it is hoped the limb can
be saved.
PERNONA L. —octav US J. Norris, Esq.,
formerly one of the proprietors of the
Norris Locomotive Works, in this city, ar
rived here on Saturday, to lease the super
structure of the Evansville and Indianapo
lis Railroad, which he has contracted to
build, to B. J. IstcGrann, Esc. Another
object of his visit was to encourage the re
opening of the Locomotive Works, as he
will be enabled to give them the construc
tion of the locomotives.
E cidd.ENT Ilixtrs A not: I REs.—The
Chief Engineer of the 'Boston Firo Depart
ment Las published some good advice to
the citizens of that city, which is equally
applicable to Lancaster. Ile sap,: "I
deem it my duty at this time to again
your attention to the necessity on your
part of a thorough inspection of tines,
stove pipes and furnaces on your respoc
five premises. At no season of the year is
the liability to extensive tires so great As at
the present; and there is no more lirnitful
source of tires than that of defective dues,
stove-pipes and furnaces. Carefully com
piled statistics show that thirty per cent. of
all our tires are caused by the neglect of
these defects. Care and attention on the
part of the owners and occupants of the
buildings will save not only a vast amount
of property, hut, it may be, precious lives.
And now, as it is clearly my duty to pro
vent as well as to extinguish tires, I call
upon you, toy fellow-citizens, to aid ine
the matter referred to."
HOME CON V ERSATlON.—Cbildren hun
ger perpetually for new ideas. they will
learn with pleasure from the lips of the
parents what they deem in drudgery to
study in books; and even if they have the
misfortune to he deprived of many edu
cational advantages, they will grow up in
telligent if they enjoy in childhood the
privilege of listening daily to the con
versation of intelligent people. We
sometimes see people who are the life
of every company they enter, dull, si
lent, and uninteresting at home among
their children. If they have not mental ac
tivity and mental stores sufficient for both,
let them first use what they have for their
own households. A silent house is a dull
place for young people, a place from which
they will escape as soon as they can. flow
much useful information, on the other
hand, is often given in pleasant family con
versation, and what unconscious but excel
lent mental training in lively social argu
ment. Cultivate to the utmost all the
graces of home conversation.
A Yocru t; t. Piot; tract; Ev.—Wed uesday
afternoon, Jacob H. Waltz, residing on the
Lancaster pike, between Lancaster and
Litiz, Pa., asked . several boys, whom he
met at Fourth and Chestnut streets, to dt
rect him to the banking house of Messrs.
Jay Cooke ,t. 7 Co. One of the lads, named
John McCluskey, volunteered to accom
pany Waltz to the banking house, and on
the way managed to abstract stri from his
pocket. Special (Itlicer Lyud happened to
ho in the vicinity, and arrested McCluskey.
Ile had, however, managed to pass the
money to a companion, unobserved, before
he was captured. Ile had a hearing at the
Central station, anti was held in 3600 bail
to answer at the present term of court.—
YORK CousTK ITEMS.— On Saturday night
about ten o'clock as Levi Williams was
crossing the track at the railroad depot, in
York, he was caught by the shifting engine
which was coming towards him. His
body was terribly mangled. Ile died in a
few hours. His remains were taken to his
home in Baltiluore.
Last Wednesday night, private watch
man Philip 'Peltier noticed smoke issuing
from the basement of I'. A. it S. Small's
large storehouse in Centre Square. Arous
ing the inaide watchman, an examination
was had, and the smoke was found to arise
from a tt, generated by spontaneous com
bustion. It was soon extinguished.
Salle prisoner, named Isaac Pile, made a
furious attack upon the Berk,' County
Prison Warden, Mr. Daniel 8. Francis, one
evening last week. lie put a heavy stone
in one of his stockings, and as Mr. Francis
was entering the cell Inc struck him be
tween the eyes with the weapon, and be
fore he could be disarmed repeated the
blows over the Warden's head and face.—
After becoming calm, Pile. us an excuse
for his conduct, said that Mr. Francis had
no right to 1 . 01110 into his cell without sq
oil lamp exploded at the residence of Mil
ton Keylor, Co lerain township, Lancaster
county, a few evenings since. Miss Anna
Kesler had taken the lamp up entire, and
in attempting to extinguish it by turning
down the wick, an explosion took place
with a loud report, the broken glass and oil
flying around in all directions; fortunate•
ly, however, without the latter taking fire,
or injury to theyoung lady. Two panesof
glass in the window of the room were also
broken, it is supposed, by the concussion
of the atmosphere. The lamp, at the time,
had but a small quantity of oil in it.
HvoitoiittoniA.—Mad dogs are 'muter
ous in-the eastern section of the county,
some fort . V'or more dogs have been killed
in and around Morgantown, and some fif
teen or twenty in the vicinity of Church
town, supposed to have been bitten. A
young man named Frank Houser, has
been bitten, and two little girls, whose
names we have been unable to learn, be
tween Churchtown and Morgantown.—
They have also made their appearance near
Beartown, and a number have been kill
ed; one is reported to have been seen near
Cedar (trove.
SmAI.L.Pox.--We understand that stories
have been circulated in various parts of the
county, that the small-pox is raging in
this pity as an epidemic, and that many
persons have died from the effects of the
disease. Careful investigation warrents us
in saying that there is no truth in the re
port. Not d single death from small-pox
has been reported, and if there are any
cases at all in town, they are of so mild a
type as not to have been considerered
worthy of notice by the medical faculty.
Putt: Cars.—Upper Liwchlan township,
Chester county, is entitled to the palm for
raising and catching pole-cats. During the
past fall season over fifty specimens of this
highly-scented part of the animal creation
have come to grief in that locality, one jinn
of three boys having been fortunate enough
to capture between thirty-five and forty.
()nu of the students of Edgefield Institute,
has succeeded in amassing enough money
by trapping pole-cats, to pay his tuition
charges for the past six months.
SPIRITEI..—A spirited young lady says
that it looks as though a man was ashamed
,to publicly show himself in company with
a lady when he hangs about the church
doors Sunday evenings waiting and watch
ing for her to make her appearance, so that
he may sneak up to her in the dark and
offer her this escort. Girls, it abotni
Er.E( - riox or OFFICERS.--The stock
