The order of tho Indiana Supreme
Court, granting a new trial to the woman,
Mrs. Nancy 15. Clem, has revived tho
discussion of tho facta connected with
the crime for which she was convicted.
Jacob Young, a prominent business man
of Indiauapolis, was found dead in tho
bed of a creek near a picnic ground,
some short distanco from Indianapolis,
with the charred remains of his wife ly
ing close beside him. It was known that
' he had borrowed a largo sum of money
.from.'an Indianapolis banker on tho day
the body was found, and no money hav
ing been discovered iu tho clothing, it
was considered fair to presume that a
double murder had been perpetrated.
Circumstantial evidenco pointed very
strongly toward Mrs. Clem, and on this
she was convicted and sentenced to

The proprietors of a private detective
agency in Chicago have been arrested
and charged with various criminal offen
ces. It is alleged against them that they
had thieves in their employ, whoso opera
tions they planned and superintended,
and then negotiated with tho owners for
the return of the property which had
been stolen under their own direction;
also, that occasionlly they committed bur
glary on their own account for the purpose
of turning an honest penny by selling their
services to ferret out the villains. They
even stole dogs for the sake of getting a
reward for their return. The private de
tective busiucss needs regulating; for
while there are some shrewd and trust
worthy men engaged in it, many of those
who embark in the occupation obtain
their living by exacting blackmail, and
by acting as agents for thieves in the
disposal of stolen property.
A new instrument for the torture of
horses has been detected in New York
through the vigilance of Mr. Bcrgh, the
" animaltarian." It is ingeniously made
us follows : First, a stiff and solid piece
of sole leather made round, of about
four inches in width. Into this are fast
ened about thirty steel nccdles.projccting
one inch from the surface of the leather.
The other side is covered with highly
japaned leather sewed find ornamented
with faucy figures to make them attract
ive. This ornament is attaelicd to the
bit, with tho sharp needles next to the
skin of the horse, and pricks them.
W hen a brutal driver desires to show his
high-mettled chargers ho pulls up his
reins, the needles penetrate the skin, and
the animal rears and prances in pain.
fisfi" Miss Sarah Jane latlhcws, who
resides with her parents, in New York,
had been in the habit or getting up in
her sleep at all times of night and walk
ing about the premises. At one time she
was mistaken for a burglar, and at anoth
er time for a ghost.
At 1 o'clock on tho morning of the
10th inst.,her perambulations nearly cost
her her life. She left her bod, and her
father was attracted by her screams.
Hastening to her room he found her
hanging out of the window head down
ward, and with her feet clasped by the
"window sash, which had providentially
fallen in time to save her life.
Officer Beacon, of the Second precinct,
was also attracted by the screams of the
young lady, and hastened to the assis
tance of her father, and they succeeded
in pulling her back iu the room. She
was of course, very much mortified to be
caught in such a shocking position. She
was only slightly injured being bruised
about tho ankles by the window falling
A Dark Mystery in Pittsburg.
About the middle of November, Officer
llager was communicated with by a gen
tleman of McKeesport, who advised him
that his daughter had eloped from her
homo early tho proceeding day ; that no
trace could be had as to her whereabout
and expressing his belief that she had
probably fled in the company of a cousin
of hers of Armstrong county, who had
for some time boen paying her attention
which had not been countcnanco by the
family, and who, it was believed, had
been keeping up a clandestine correspond
ence. The father is a well-to-do citizen of
McKeesport aud a contractor. On the
occasion in question, ho had been away
from homo for a day attending to some
business. On his return he learned that
his daughter was nowhere to bo found,
lie had thought proper to interdict the
young lady's intercourse with a first cous
in of hers, who lived in Kittanning and
worked at carpentering, mainly on the
ground of the close relationship of the
Officer llager was at once on tho look
out to discover tho whereabouts of the
girl, but ineffectually. No person an
swering to the description given had put
in appearance at any of tho public ro
sorts. The father and brother of the
young lady shortly got down from Mc
Keesport, and a consultation was held as
to further measures. Finally, the officer
was detailed to go up to Kittanning and
learn what he could of the parties there.
To his surprise he found tho Armstrong
county cousin working us usual at his
trado in Kittanning, and, apparently, per
fectly ignorant of his cousin's elopement.
A enrol ul watch was set upon his movo
mouts, and Hagar was at length satisfied
that tho young fellow had no complicity
in his cousin's disappearance.
He returned to tho city, and the search
was taken up with fresh vigor. Not hav
ing eloped to marry her lover, the next
question was, what was her object in
leaving the parental roof? Tho family
relations had nnt ot late been ot the most
agreeable character, owing to her openly
expressed preference for the Kittanning
cousin, but thero had been nothing in the
family difference which would justify
recourse to a step which tho distressed
father and brother now began to regard
as a possible solution of the difficulty.
That the girl had left her home to lead
a life of shame was a theory reluctantly
accepted, but one which, under the cir
cumstances, had many probabilities to
support it. A tour of the houses of pros
titution was made under the direction of
Officer llager. A couple ot courtezans
who had left their homes some time ago
to come to the brothels of tho city were
known to the detective, and he regarded
it as probable that the runaway might
havo taken refuge with them.
Their residence was ascertained, and a
close watch was kept upon the house
without result. They were interrogated
and expressed entire ignorance in the
matter. The search was then ex
tended to all places of tho kind, but no
trace3 of tho lost one could be found.
The father and brother became dispirited
and after a week or so spent in tho vain
inquiry they returned to McKeesport,
leaving orders to have every effort made
from time to time that would give any
promise of a favorable result.
The missing girl is yet in her teens,
being only in her seventeenth year. Sl.o
was a very attractive person, and could
lay claim to considerable beauty, llcr
motives and her whereabouts are equally
a mystery. We would suggest that
the search bo not intermitted, as it is the
only hope of saving her to a future prom
ising enjoyment of respectability.
Philadelphia, Dec. 10, 1870.
Mr. Editor It really begins to look as if
our city council were brightening up ami
trying to place our good old town on an
equality with other live cities. They have
actually passed a bill establishing a " paid
flro department." Tho bill now only wants
tho signature of Mayor Fox to become a
law. With the passing away of the old
organization, we expect not only to got rid
of much of the rowdyism that at present
disgraces tho city, but to have less fires.
Another frequent causo of lire is tho use of
poor coal oil, which is lrcqucntly sold not
