    CITY B
THE MURDERER PROBST.—WO paid a
visit :to this wretched criminal yesterday
afternoon. We had no conversation with
• him, as one of his counsel, Mr. Wolbert, has
forbidden any questioning of him, end cau
tioned the prisoner himself against talking
to vihitors. Probst was chained by the
ankle to the floor and he sat upon a stool
with his eyes fixed upon a point a short dis
tance in advance of him, in his usual way.
He was entirely unoccupied at the time of
our visit, although religious books and a
rosary were within his reach. Although
idle, he by no means evinced listlessness,
his eyes and countenance indicating that
thought was busy.
The guilty wretch still adheres to his old
story -of a confederate. He freely admits
the killing of the boy Carey with his own
hands. and be admits that he held the horse,
while "Jake" despatched! Mr. Dearing and
Miss Dolan, as they got out of the wagon.
It can scarcely be possible that' the latter
part of this statement is truthful, for apart
from the almost certainty of the crime hav
ing been committed by Probst alone, there
are many facts to support the belief that
both Mr. Dearing and Miss Dolan were
butchered at the stable, and a considerable
distance from the spot indicated by the
murderer.
It is feared that the prisoner will commit
suicide if the opportunity is afforded him.
The means of doing so are kept out of his
reach during daylight, and at night, in ad
dition to the manacles at his ankle, his
arms are secured behind his back by means
of handcuffs.
Before proceeding to the prison yesterday
we accompanied Chief Franklin on a visit
to the Dearing homestead. Mr. Franklin
went professionally in pursuit of a work
that he has entered upon with great zealand
success,and for ourselves, we were prompted
by a desire to witness the present condition
of the scene of the dread tragedy. The re
latives of the murdered family were about
removing the furniture from the house, and
confusion and desolation reigned supreme
where a happy family had its home a fort
night ago. As we stood in the little sitting.
room we drew a picture in our mind of the
scene enacted there on the morning of the
dreadful Saturday when the btusy housewife
was first decoyed from her domestic duties
to the barn, to fall beneath the axe of the
murderer; and how ono by one the little
ones were taken from their playthings and
their cradle to share the fate of their butch
ered mother. The details of the terrible
story will probably never be known.
On all sides evidences are seen of the
strange mania possessed by some persons
for collecting ghastly relics. Wherever a
drop of blood could be found upon barn or
stable the wood-work has been chopped off
and carried away by curiosity hunters, and
nothing, from a wisp of hay from the stack
where Carey was concealed, to a piece of
blood-stained wood or a small portable ar
ticle from the dwelling or out-buildings,
seems to have come amiss to the crowd of
relic-seekers who have overrun the place.
It was discovered yesterday that in addi
tion to the two watches already described as
having been taken by Probst, a small, old
fashioned,ailver watch of the " bull's eye"
pattern has disappeared. Any person
vowing anything of the two watches not yet
accounted for would serve the cause of jus
.tice by giving information to the authorities.
THE RINGING OF THE STATE HOUSE
BELL FOR FIRES.—The following is the pe
lion of the delegates of the Fire Department
for the ringing of the State House bell for
fires in the pay -time, presented to City
Councils yesterday afternoon:
GENTLEMEN: We the undersigned delegates
from the respective companies composing
the Fire Department of the City of Phila
delphia, respectfully represent that there is
a great want of attendance of our members
at fires occurring in day-time, in conse
quence of not having adequate means of ap
prising them of the existence of such fires.
By an order of his Honor, Alexander
Henry, late Mayor of the city, the ringing
of the State HOWE) bell was prohibited be
tween the hours of 6 o'clock A. M. and 10
o'clock P. H. which renders it almost im
possible for the majority of the members
of the Fire Department to know during
such hours when there is a fire or an alarm
of fire.
Members of nearly every company in the
Fire Department are employed in the neigh
borhood of the State House, where, with the
- noise in their workshops and the hum of
. business on the street, they cannot hear the
" ringing of the smaller fire bells or know of
the existence of' a fire.
The law requiring that the State House
bell shall be rung for all alarms of fire has
never been repealed. It often occurs that
alarms, through the Fire Alarm Telegraph,
are not promptly and at other times are in
correctly sent. Together with these facts,
several disastrous fires have occurred from
the delay in giving the alarm of fire or from
no alarm having been sent at all.
Therefore, as these errors and difficulties
might in a great measure be avoided by
keeping, as in former times, some person
-continually on duty in the State House
-steeple, on the 100k -out for fires, and in
-order to better promote the efficiency of the
Fire Department, we respectfully and earn
neatly request that you will enact a bill au
thorizing the ringing of the State House
bell for all true alarms of fire during the
-day and evening, as well as night, and to
.require the presence at all times of some
person in the State House steeple, on the
look-out for fires.
And, as we learn from the city officials
that the ringing of the State House bell was
prohibited by his Honor Alexander Henry,
late Mayor of the city, because it had a ten
dency to attract thieves, corner loungers,
ac., to fires, we also earnestly request that
the existing laws and police regulations re
lative to fires be strictly enforced.
THE SALE Or ROBINSON'S PICTURES.-
As was expected, the bidding at the second
evening of this sale was much more spirited,
and. Mr. Scott, the auctioneer, must have
been happy over the prices given kir most

inches, by Plehel, of Paris, calied "The
Smokers," brought $400; "The Little
Coquette," 12 by 14, by Meyer, of Bremen,
brought $660; "The Hireling' Fleeth," by

$305, $lB7 50 and i sl 47; the "Blacksmith
Shop," by Champe, $300; "Landscape with
Cattle," by Laurent de Beal," $405; "Lake
of Bnentz," by Jungheim, ' n s26o; two com
panion pandscapes by C. F. de - Vogel,

of the evening's sale were nearly twelve
thousand dollars.

FIRE IN THE INQUIRER BUILDINGS.—A
tire broke , out about nine o'clock last even,
ing in the rear portion of the fourth-story
of the Inquirer building, No. 304 Chesnut
,treat. The firemen were soon upon the
ground, and by their energetic efforts the
flames were prevented from spreading
beyond the apartment in which they origi
nated. The presses and machinery upon the
lower floor were somewhat injured by the
water which was necessarily thrown into
the building. The loss is estimated at be
tween $2,000 and $3,000, and is covered by
insurance. .The fire did not interfere with
the regular issue of the paper this morning.
SuiclDE.—A German named Peter Gon
trum,aged about 50years,committed suicide
last night. He was the proprietor of a lager
beer saloon in the basement of No. 406
South Sixth street. Last night he went into
the yard, took a good stout clothes line and
fastened it to ajoist under a shed. After ad
justing the other end arronnd his neck,
jumped off the chair on which he stood. His
body was found this morning. No cause is
assigned for the act of self-destruction.

quest:
