THE BURDEI.L MCRDER CASE. —The trial of
Mrs Cunningham, indicted as a principal in
the murder of Dr. Burdell, was commenced in
New York on Monday week before Judge Da
vies. The entire day and evening, until 9P. M.,
was consumed ih obtaining a jury. Many of
the five hundred who were empaneled were
absent, and many of those present had formed
an opinion. Mrs. Cunningham was present,
dressed in deep mourning, and accompanied by
her two daughters. Eckel was also in court,
and sat by the side of his counsel dnring the
day. The District Attorney opened the case
for the prosecution ou Tuesday.
The trial was concluded on Saturday last,
and ended in the acquittal of Mrs. Cnnning
bam. There was not the slightest evidence
which cast suspicion even upon her as a parti
cipant in the bloody deed. Eckel was dis
charged from custody upon nominal bail, upou
his own recognizance. He will probably not
On Monday night last, a little before ten
o'clock, our citizens were aroused by the cry of
FIRE, for a long time happily unheard in our
village. When first discovered the flames
were bursting through Ah-wa-ga House barn,
a very large and well finished frame building,
containing eight horses, one cow, and a large
quautity of hay, besides two omnibuses, a num
ber of valuable wagons and carriages, har
nesses, etc. As soon as the flames were dis
covered a rush was made for the barn, and
the front door opened ; but the whole inside
was a mass of flames, and it was utterly im
possible to rescue the horses, two of which
had been driven into the bam but a few min
utes previously, and were hitched to the om
nibus. In a few moments the whole building
was enveloped in flames, and from its combus
tible nature and the force of the wind, which
was then blowing a gale, few entertained any
hopes of saving any of the frame buildings
in its vicinity. The flames roared and surged
through the roof carrying the burning shingles
in every direction. Occasionally the flames,
as if acted upon by a violent whirlwind, would
tower straight up, illuminating the whole vil
lage, then instantly the eolninu would be lash
ed down horizontally over the neighboring
roofs covering them with glowing shingles and
burning embers. It was really the most terr.f
fie sight we have seen. Soo.i Charles Beers'
Livery stable, from which the horses, wagons
aud harnesses, etc., were with difficulty res
cued, and his dwelling hou<e on Lake street,
Gold's aud Riley's blacksmith shops and Conk
liu's wagon shop, were in flames and all efforts
for their safety were unavailing. The elegart
residence of Capt. Ayers and the large barn
belonging to the Central House, were saved
by the greatest efforts. The Central House
itself was in the most imminent danger, and
had it not befen for the combined exertions of
a number of active citizens, aided by a good
full cistern and a long line of pails, it would
not be now standing almost entirely uninjured,
externally at least. Isaac Hall's boot and
shoe manufactory had a narrow escape, as al
so Mr. Huntington's residence. A little shan
ty that stands off the street, between Mr.
Beers' residence aud the Messrs. Lameraux's
saddlery was pulled down and by that means
checked the fire from progressing down the
cast side of Lake street.
Mr. Brower's loss must be $2.500 or $3,000
on whii h we learn he has SSOO insurance.—
Mr. Beers, and Mr. Gould aud Mr. Riley had
no insurance. The entire loss must uinouut
to between $6,000 and $7,000.
Of the eight horses destroyed in Mr. Brow
er's barn, five belonged to Mr. Brower, one to
James Wright, o ; e to Mr. Newell and one to
Benjamiu Wilcox. Each was worth at least
Mr. Beers lost in his barn 10 or 12 tons of
hay, and about 300 bushels of oats.
The origin of the fire is unknown. The dri
ver of the omnibus was in the barn not over
10 minutes before the fire was discovered.—
There was a fluid lamp burning in the omni
bus. It may have exploded, or the stump of
a cigar may have been dropped. There are
some suspicions of deliberate iuceudiarism.—
NATIONAL HOTEL DISEASE. —Mr. Briggs, of
the National Hotel, has called and requested
us to correct a statement in onr article of Sa
turday evening, touching the fatal disease.—
We cheerfully do so. He says that no rats
were found in the tanks—that the one on the
ground-floor was mad' of granite, and the
other, on the roof, was closed by a spring door.
The water was pumped from the lower to the
upper one, which he visited twice or three
times daily, and can vouch as to the impossi
bility of rats getting into either.
The assertion made in distant papers that
the disease made its first appearance when Mr.
Buchanan came, Mr. Briggs states to be un
true. Cases as early, he thinks, as the Bth of
January, were noted. The hot weather of
February succeeding, the house was kept cool,
and no cases presented themselves. In March
the weather changed, and it became necessary
to close windows and doors, and light fires :
which being done, the disease commenced with
the fury which has made it so laniei tably no
torious.— Washington States, May 6.
MYSTERIOUS MURDER. —On Thursday mor
ning the dead body of a young and beautiful
woman ajiparently twenty years of age, was
fonnd lying in a ploughed field at Hampton,
about five miles north of Newburg. She was
entirely naked, and round her neck was found
a cord, and from this circumstance, as well
from the distortion of her features, it was
evident her death had been caused by stran
gulation. No clue to her name or whence
she came, had been discovered at last advices
from Newbnrg, but the Coronor had common
oed an inquest. None of her apparrel was
found, and the only article belonging to her
that has been discovered so far Was a Targe
cameo brooch, or breastpin.— New York Ad
teifTlieN. Y. Times gives as "an Item
for (Jld Buck," the following : "On Wednesday
night AT the Opera, Col. FREMONT and Kx-
Pre.iident Fillmore sat side by side in a front
seat, listening to Gazzauiga in " Norma," ap
parently entirely forgetful that there had been
a Presidential election last Fall. If Mr. Bu
chanan could have looked in and seen how per
fectly satisfied and placid these two rivals of
his appeared in their defeat, we are not sure,
hot that he would have envied theua their hap-
Py escape from the toils and troubles of the
w hite Iloasc."
ANOTHER BI.OODYTRAOEDY.— Two Shocking
Murders for Money. —The Pittsburg papers of
Saturday contain the particulars of another
shocking tragedy, committed in the borough
of McKeesport, Pennsylvania. The victims
were an old and decrepid couple, brother and
sister, between sixty and seventy years of age,
by the names of George aud Elizabeth Wil
The couple lived in a small cabin on the
main road leading to Elizabethtown, and had
by economy and industry, succeeded in accu
milating some money, whereby they might
support themselves in their declining year 9.
It appears that a day ot two previous there
came to the cabin a large and masculine look
ing female, who craved shelter for charity
sake. The boon was freely granted and dur
ing the first day of the stranger's stay at the
house, she made particular inquiries concern
ing the pecuniary circumstances of her benefac
Ab"ort 8 o'clock last Friday morning, a
neighbor's little girt proceeded to pay her ac
customed visit to the old couple at their cabin.
She opened the door and entered ; but instead
of being received with a welcome and a smile
as was nsual, a horrid spectacle was presented
to her gaze. The brother had been stabbed
to the heart, and the knife which inflicted the
deadly wound, lay a short distance from the
corpse, all covered with blood. By the
side of the brother, lay the sister, a mutila
ted in a manner shocking to the senses, and
sickening to the heart of humanity ; her head
was bruised and beaten so horribly that it
would have been impossible to recognize it
from the rest of her body, as the representa
tion of anything hnman. A poker besmear
ed with blood, was lying on the hearth, and it
is supposed to have been the instrument used
in performing this act of barbarous butch
The woman spoken of, who claims to be
married to a man named Fife, has been arrest
ed on suspicion, as was her pretended hus
band, and a man named Mon Stewart. Blood
was found upon Fife's clothing, and it is stat
ed in a postscript that Charlotte Jones or Fife
(the woman spoken of) has disclosed the
whole affair, implicating the men arrested and
two others—her brother one of them.
SINGULAR FREAK OF A BIRD. —The Somer
set (Pa.,) Democrat says, some time last fall,
a blackbird came to Mr. Joseph Snyder's in
this borough, and has since lived contentedly
with the chickens. It lias thoroughly domesti
cated, and comes regularly for his food. In
stead of roosting as chickens do, it takes a
position ou tiie rooster's back, who bears the
weight of his little friend with great good na
ture. But the most singular of all is this it
has learned to crow like a cock, and crows re
gularly, more frequently than the rooster, and
seems to be vain of its accomplishment. It
is a real bona fide crow, clear and loud and
similar to that of a young rooster. The
bird can be seen and heard daily ; and if any
one doubts its truth, they can be convinced by
seeing and hearing for themselves. The age
is progessive, aud the birds are keepiug up
with the times.
noßp.ini.F. ACCIDENT. — A man saiced in two.
The London (C W.) Free press of yesterday,
says that on Wednesday of last week, a most
shocking accident occured in a circular saw-mill
at Wallsinghara. Charles Harris, a young
man lately married, had just been employed
that morning to work in the mill and was set
carrying away boards as they dropped from
the saw. He was cautioned against the dan
ger of letting a board touch the saw while in
motion, but the unfortunate man had taken
away but a few boards when the end of one
he had just taken up swayed agaiust the saw,
and being repelled with violence, caused the
other end to force him against the saw, then
in full motion, and, as quick as thought, he
was cut in twain. The saw struck first the
point of the left shoulder passing directly
through the heart, and out under the ribs on
the right side of the body.
MAINE. —The legislature of Maine passed
two acts of an important character previous to
its adjournment, besides resolutions condemn
ing the Dred Scott decision. One of these
acts provides that in case a fugitive slave is
arrested under the act of Congress in that
state, the cour)tv attorney shall undertake his
defence and summon the necessary witnesses to
establish it. The second enacts that any slave
voluntar ly brought into that state by his mas
ter, or with his knowledge and consent, shall
thereby become free ; and if restrained of his
liberty, lie may, on the writ of habeas corpus,
lie discharged from such restraint ; and any at
tempt by any person to restrain such slave Of
his liberty, shall be punished by a fine not ex
ceeding one thousand dollars, or by imprison
ment not exceeding one year.
