is an Incident that transpired during tbe

who bad been In one of New Tork's largest
bankers' offices for some time and was tho
roughly conversant with tbe operations of
tbe "street" drew some $66(1 that ha had
saved and put in tbe bank and speculated
therewith. Fickle fortune smiled on him
and by Friday moroing he had made $15,

luck, advised him to invest that amount
with tbem and they would "makes bun-'

replied: "Charley has made fifteen cool:

Republican of tbe 85tta inst., brings us tbe
sad news of the death of Collin C. McClean
ny a pistol shot from his own hands, on
Saturday afternoon last, near the McUcnry
House, in Jtradville. Tbe deceased wa
a young man but 19 years of age,.. a resident
o t.cttysburg, this State, where bis parents
reside.- His father is a prominrnt lawyer
in tbe southern part of Pennsylvania, and
tbe deceased was highly respected at home
as a young man of promise, religiously in
clined, and withal one in whom , tbe com
munity placed the ntmost confidence. His
sad end is attributed to the fact that bis
eyes were growing very weak, and he labor"
ed under the impression that sooner or later
bo would bicome blind, and chose deatD
rather- than the misfortune of loosing his
oye-sight. He cime to Meadville at the
solicitation of bis patents, to spend some
timo with a relative near Meadville. think
ing that this change would benefit bis sight.
His death will cast a gloom over the quiet
Village of Gettysburg, and his parents will
deeply feel tbe loss of a beloved son.
The slung-sbot with which Twitcbeil, the
Philadelphia murderer, killed bis raotber-lo-law,
Mrs. Hill, has bee i found. It is a
pear-shaped lump or lead, the base of it be.
ing bollow, and the cavity is smeared with
blood. The handle of it is made ol strips of
leather being plaited together. Tbe lead
is very much battered, and there are about
half a dozen impressions of beads on its but
race. This corroborates tbo opinions or
several learned physicians, eubpcenafcd as
witnesses, who stoutly maintained tuh
out the trial that tbe wounds upon the skull
of Mrs. Hill could not have beeo caused by
tbe bloody poker which was produced at the
trial, and which was not at all bent.

London, Oct. 25.
Nearlv all the metropolitan papers to-day
have oiituary notices of the late Earl
Tbe Times, in an obituary on Lord
Derby, lavs: No man can be a statesman
without a statesmanlike temperament. With
this tbe Esrl ol Derby was never endowed.
He was too impulsive to resist tbe tempta
tion or miking sallies or enemies. His
sneer at the Italian struggles will always be
remembered as a proof of his recklessness in
speaking on foreign affairs. The Duke of
Wellington bequeathed to bim bis intluence
in the Houso of Lords, but the bequest
could not be executed, and tbe mantle of
tbe Duke's soldierlike virtues bad not de
scended on bis successor. Great as was bis
ascendancy among the Conservative Peers,
be never gained tne tonfldence of his coun-
Tne Standard predicts that while the
present generation lives Lord Derby will be
remembered throughout his own province,
not only as an orator, scholar and statesman
of whom Lancashire may well bo proud
but as a man who in the direct trial took
bis place as leader in the work of relief and
charity, as the rich man who cared fur tbe
sorrows of tbe poor, and tbe great man who
respected the pride of tbe lowly, not as the
Premier of England, but as a kindly neigh
bor, generous friend, and Christian gentle
