Ovum Hies In Schuylkill Couuty.
Mi.. official report of the numb e r of persons
!:illed in the collieries in Schuylkill county,
troth May ixt to December 31st, 1b69, was 57,
which is one for about 67;800 tons of coal
ruined ~. and 91 persons were injured, which
is ono iflr about every 42,400 tons mined during
period,. Taking the whole year in the
that ,
same proportion, it would give 72 persons
. killed during the year, and 115 Injured. No
official report has been.kept of the number of
t iia injured that afterwards died, but as far as
we received answers to fineries which we ad
dressed to Opi:rators, about one-sixth of the
injured penults have died, which would give
the number ofdeaths caused by. casualties in
mines in SchuYildll county, in 1869, at 91,
learitig tiii injured that survived, in the . pro :

1 ' The Chester Republican reportS the follow
ing :—An aggravated ease of bigamy recently
occurred in this city, in which two brothers
—Daniel and Edward Agnew-s-both married
men, with families, living in Philadlphia,
married two girls—Rosanna and . I ritiget
Dougherty—daughters of James and arneY
Dougherty, aged eighteen, residing in - orth
Ward. The Agnews were in the eru
• of a.
picture and looking-glass dealer in h ladel
'phia, and brought their wares to this' Mty for
sale, returning to their homes at night. in
their peregrinations in that locality they
became acquainted with the ' Dough
erty girls, to whom they repreSented
themSetm;., as _ single
and finally
the girls often, and finally _.obtained
permission of their parents to take them out
carriage-riding. Affairs continued in this way
for some time ; when the rascals professed
love to - the girls, and married them/ atiout
Christmas. The Marriage was kept a secret,
and about the middle of last month he girls
left their homes one evening, and have not
open beard of since. Their disappearance led
the parents to investigate the matter,
found the wives of the Agnews n Phila
delphia--ono with two children; the 'youngest
a little over a year old, in destitute circuit"-
stances ' and the other with one child-both
supposing. their husbands were in this place
selling pictures. Nothing has been heard of
the Agnews or their second wives since they
left here.
The New York 17entIcl save:
We publish to-day au article from the/Phil
adelphia Morning Post upon the subject/of the
formation of a new press association: The
ideas expressed are sound. The old Associated
Press organization, as it now stands, is hardly
up to the progress of the age as evinced in
modern journalism. The ideas of a quarter of
a century ago cannot be applied at this day to
enterprises that have made such- wonderful
strides in advance as are to be observed in the
mode of managing and conducting newspapers.
We anticipate much good from the new press
association, even if it does nothing more than
to incite the old association to renewed efforts
in carrying out the objects for which it was
originally instituted. Competition is the life
of trade in the neWspaper as well as in all
other kinds of business, and when the PresS
Association shall discard some of its exchtsive
features, practice more economy and infuse a
little fresher energy into its operations, the
better will it be for newspaper proprietors and
the public generally. We hope the new aSSO
elation will be allowed a fair trial ; for in the
success of the experiment the people at large
have a special interest. •

YAMS; Friday; Jan. 21;:1870.,—The subjects
iffhieb the publid mind had preSented to it
of late are not, it must be confessed, of the
most agreeable character. On the ono side
we have been awaiting the execution` of the
most daring and wholesale murderer of
modern times; and on the other, the trial for
homipide at least, if not for assaSsinaticm ? of
a Prince; and.. cousin of the Emperor.• - Such
things seem to infect the morality of the very '
air we breathe, and to impregnate, as it were,
the atmosphere itself with crimp. One of these
thrilling; but unwhOlesome ensode.s' arising
out of the dark side of the web of human na
ture has just been consummated. Troppmann
died the slay before. yesterday;-died as he
had lived, furiously, like a wild beast, dream
ing of blood and :destruction to the very last,
I and meditating new murders to emancipate
himself from the laws of death, just as he had
bef?re committed murders to escape from
poverty and give himself the means of in
dulging his vicious propensities. And he ex
hibite.d in his latest machinations the same
stupid unintelligence which marked hiswhole
previous career of crime. Fancy a
man in his position writing to the
apothecary of the prison, the very day before
his execution, offering him a bribe to supply
him with chloroform and prussic acid ! Such
a bribe, too—a thousand ,francs !--as though,
even as regards the amount, he could. expect
to purchase such an act for such a sum. A.nd
then, the very same day, with stupid confi
dence, and a cold-blooded Indifference to
taking yet more human lives , which makes
one shudder, he writes to tell his brother that
he has found the means to evade the disgrace
of a public execution ; and that, not by killing
himself, as one would expect to hear, but
by destroying his two watchers, and then
escaping. disguised in the clothes of one of
them. There is a bloodthirsty insolence
about such a plan which makes one's flesh
creep with indignation at the bare possibility
of its success. I shall not dwell upon the de
tails of the last hours of such a monster.
Those present tell us that he looked the mur
derous hypocrite that he was to the last, and
persisted in his obstinate denial of being the
chief and only perpetrator of the dreadful
deeds for which he was summoned to die.
There is something highly-characteristic in
his manner of thus "-persisting." He did it
as though he felt a sort of diabolical relief and
satisfaetion in being able in some degree to
wound and give pain to his fellow creatures
up to his very latest utterance. He seemed
to know that an avowal is always satisfactory
to those who have been , engaged in the ar
rest and execution of a criminal condemned
to death, and this satisfaction he had a plea
sure in refusing. " Say I persist in my de
lie said to the priest, at the bottom of
the fatal ladder which led to the scaffold.
And then again, as he surmounted the last
step, he turned round and shouted almost de
monically : " Tell them I persist!" And_ all
this was' - done, not with - an air - as though he
wished to carry conviction, but only te
provoke and annoy and give pain. The finale
seems to have been a elisicking scene.
Either from the savage instincts of his nature ;
or more probably because he thought to Check
the death agony by lashing himself into fury
—he gave way to, a paroxysm of rage at' the
last moment. a hen already bound upon the
fatal plank. He struggled fiercely with all the
terrible strength which he had so fearfully
shown himself to possess ; continuing to
draw up his knees, though strapPed down
upon the board, and then dashed both head
and shoulders through the orifice where hi.s
neck was to be pinned down. •He had to •be
thrust back by mutt force ; and in the
struggle, by a . sudden bend - Of - hiss-head
he contrived, to seize and bite severely
with his teeth the thumb of the executioner.
H orrible, horrible, most horrible! is all that
can be said of such a life and such an end;
and perhaps when the scene enacting on the
scatlold is, combined with that which we are
told was going on among the filthy and ribald
rout around, it would scarcely be possible for
imagination to conceive a picture in whiell
buruau nature could be displayed in darker
colors. The only relief to its sombre tints' and
the melancholy reflections it inspires is in the
thought that crime there met its reward, and
that justice reigned supreme and inexorable.
The preliminary examinations in the other
melancholy case above alluded to—the homi
cide at Auteuil—are proceeding slowly and
laboriously, every effort Ming made to solve
what will only too probably remain a mystery
to the end, viz.: from which of the two par.
ties the provocation, if there were such, arose,
which produced the rash and fatal act. The
most trilling facts are minutely inquired into,
with a view to elicit or render probable who
struck the first blow; as, for instance, whether
the victim had his hat on when shot, at what
distance the bail struck him, &c. But I fear
no. human iugenuity will ever establish the
precise truth of the ease; and the most chari
table conjecture, perhaps, after all, is that the
twi) survivors do not quite know it theniselv6
Besides these darker edit ses edebrm, we have
i now.also in prospect the trial of Rochefort,
who is summoned before the Correctional l'o-
lice Cpurt to-Morrow. But it is probable that
the hearing of the ease will be adjourned.
Scenes of a brighter description meet our
eye on the other side of the Seine, among the
'Ministerial Hotels of the Faubouig St. Ger
main. There we see the salons of the new
.ministers crowded with a brilliant assethblage
of functionaries ) all anxious to pay homage to
;power and success. The first reception of M.
011iviei• was quite ." an ovation, so
,unusually large wag the . attendance. At the
most crowded moment entrance into the
'salons was barely possible, so thick was the
jostlo Of foreign , ambassadors, dignitaries,
depiFl es ; s,onators, academicians and men of
!ail ranks and creations, not to mention a host
of ladies. The task of receiving all her guasta

young atld very , pretty woman, only some
twenty years of age, who has been married
scarcely three' months, and is thus brought out
at Ghee from , a condition " of private
life' ' .into all this • blaze of
celebrity and officialify. But by universal
AFfiClll; she acquitted herself most clifirmingly
and successfully of her new duties. She was
most chastely attired Ina plain black velvet
dress, *ern high, with a long train, which set
off admirably her delicate blonde complexion
and fair hair, bound with only a single blue
satin,ribbon. She held in her hand a black
and gold fan, without a bouquet 1 and mani
fested a , graceful consciousness, without the
least awkwardness, of the, novelty of her po
sition, which all present allowed to be far
more attractive than the hardened aplomb of
certain domes du • grand mondo. • .1)1. 011ivier
himself was perhaps almost the only man in
his own salons who was "distinguished" by
the . absence of any decoration. For not' even
the bit of red ribbon which dubs a man chew
liar was to be seen in his buttonhole. He is
probably the very first of his countrymen
who has ever reached the rank of first Minis
ter of the crown without having been the re
cipient of a single order, native or foreign.
The fashionable season is being fully inaugu
rated, and balls are announced at the Tuileries
and the Hotel de Ville. Great numbers of
Americans have arrived in Paris from the -
South and from Home, and form, as usuai,one
of the most conspicuous elements of our-win

111. Ilechefort's Case.--Proceedings Before .
the 'Criminal Tribunal—Charges and
b rein Galignaure Megoonger. of Paris, January 25
The Allah. of 31..Rochefort came on Satur
day before the "Correctional Tribunal, fiar an
article signed by him in the-Maraddaise on the
12th inst., and in which ho. was accused of of
fence against the person of the Emperor and
of provocation to civil war. •
. A charge was also made against .11. - Deremre,
gOant, and 31. Grousset, writer on the same
journal, for publishing on the said 12th Janu
ary an article insulting to the Emperor and
inciting to various crimes:
• Although an announcement had been made
that the principal accused would not appear,
a considerable crowd collected in the hope of
obtaining admission into the court. Unusual
measures had been taken - to pre.serie order ;
and the utmost tranquillity prevailed through
Aulois, l'Avoeat Imperial, maintained
With greattnederation the charge against the
persons incriminated, and the Court con;
demned 31. Rochefort to six mouths'
onment and 3,0001. rine (but without any de-
privation of civil rights, no allusion being
made to that possible penalty); M. Grousset
to a like term of confinement and to'pay 2,000
francs, and M.Dereure to six months, and to
two tines of SCOI, each.
No manifestation took place beyond that of
a few young men crying out in the street, out
side, " Vive Rochefort!" '
What the People Said of the Sentence.
Ualignani's Messenger, of Paris, of the 25th
of January, commenting on the sentence
passed on 31. Rochefort, says : The extremely
light sentence passed on M. Rochefort for his
insulting language to the Emperor and his ex=
citation to insurrection forms almost the only
subject of remark to the Paris journals. That
the government desired to have indulgence
shown cannot be doubted, as M. Aulois, the
Advocate Imperial, in his requisitory„ made
use of the subjoined Language :
"Many persons have recommended that the
Most severe penalttea should be pronounced
against the accused. But we, who are charged
to support the prosecution, demand that a
punishment as light as possible shall bo in
dicted and that it shall have for its object only
to cause the law to be respected by all."
31. Rochefort hiinsell, in the 3lae;:eillaiBe,,
expresses great indignation at such leniency,
his expressions running thus
Why six months and not twenty years?
Why 3,000 f. and •not .5,0o011? This is just as if
the Ministry were to say to the people assem
bled : "You must take our position into con
sideration; we cannot withdraw the prosecu
tion, as otherwise it would be impossible to
extricate ,ourselves from the dilemnia— On
the other hand, our courage fails us to brave
pone opinion, which is narrowly watching
us, so that under these circumstances we think
that six months! imprisonment will conciliate
all diflieultiefi: We will add 3,000 f. fine not to
appear to retreat from the ground we have
taken, and, so we will put an end to the
matter." Such is the effect which this decision
has produced upon me after having calmly and
dispassionately weighed it. I was summoned
to answer a charge of inciting to revolt, no
more heinous otleuce than which can exist in
the eyes of the Ministry, especially when the
people are so happy anti contented under their
rule. However much persuaded any Cabinet
may be of its own incapacity, it can but de.
clare that all hopes of happiness are to be
centred in itself alone, for, were it not to ap
pear convinced of that result, it would be
guilty of not making room for another one.
These Principles. being admitted, either I
have nicited to revolt or 'I have not; it'
really guilty of this crime—that is to
say, it, with the aim of overthrow
ing a beloved goverenment, • I have
attempted to steep in blood thestreets of Paris,
to impede commerce, to di.sturb public feeling,
to drive away foreign visitors—l appeal to all
Frenchmen, even the most indulgent, and ask
them whether it be not a complete farce to
pretend to, avenge seciety, outraged and
threatened in its very existence, by a sentence
of six months' imprisonment? That penalty,:.
with the fine of three thotisand franeS, cannot'
belconsidered as - meeting the merits of the'
case, and from the moment I am declared
guilty. I must claim what I consider I am en
titled to, and I do: not think I exaggerate in
fixing the Punishment at twenty years' hard
labor. It - very extraordinary, and
even insulting,' that the 0 4 oVernment for
which I have always shown So little indhlgence
should treat mo with SO much. If proved, how

has not the sentence removed' he accusation

months? Whence does this conviction arise?
What canf do with it? But if it be proved,
'on the contrary, that.l. did not provoke to in

charge aside? The whole mode of explaining
the Whole business would be to draw up a

free and happy. But foreign princes came
from beyond the seas, brifiging
in their train nobility and officials;
they enslaVed the people and seized their

towns, whence they still lord it over us. It is
to them that we owe those oppressive laws

. They fatten on our bread. Their towns are so
well fortified that it is impossible for us to at

An American Suicide
An English, exchange says: The Leeds
Coroner has held an inquest on the body of
Hr. Charles Hermon Thornton, a native of
the United States, and a partner in the firm of
1 Homan,Thornton & Co., general merchants,
• Bradford. The deceased bad been visiting at
Sandford House, the residence of Mr. Homan,
his chief partner. It appears that since No
vember last he has been very depressed in
spiiits. He had, two or three years ago,insured
his life in a New York -office. A. gentleman
representing that office had got his consent to
increase the amount of that insurance. As a
preliminary to that he had to he examined by
a Bradford physician,and that gentleman had
refused to give a certificate that would be
satisfactory to the office. Then Mr. Thornton
became depressed,and at times expressed fears
,that the business of the firm was alt going,.
away, • and that it would take halt
a': Million of money -to • set things
right again. This the Coroner and jury were
assured was all a delusion; and theremere no
private speculations or anything, in the de
ceased's private afiiiirs which would have
originated his distress of mind. He had gone
rqi to London to consult Dr. Gull, and the ad
vice he received was that he should be careful
as to his diet, and_ he would get well again.
'When -he returned - from London be
asked his partner if he had received
a telegram from some of their \ friends
in London, for he said lie was sure hO had
acted so strangely that they would be sending
word that something was • wrong. That; was
also a delusion. He'appeared better on Satur
