Christian philanthropist, as wall as au

A molt suitable partner was found In
the parson of William T. Shanhou ' Esq ,
who for a number of years had been a
most faithful, ho was a moat popular
salesman. In the house. Mr. Shannon
became associated as a partner iu 1853.
He was a most vainablo acquisition to
the establishment, for there is no more
worthy or unassuming gentleman .to be
found anywhere, nor one that under.
stands the dry goods business better.
At this time the trade of the house had
Increased to 'such an extent that it was
found necessary to move into more
spacious quarters. Accordingly, the
firm of Arbuthnot & Shannon purchased
the old established dry good,, house of
Jas. E. Breading & CO., lib Wood street.
In leas than a decade after the Recession
of Mr. 1363011013, the Arm received another

The Free Troder , s4laraet for Wheat,
The advocates for an almost exclusive
English market, and at the same time the
ready sueerera at the "home market." get
very little comfort from the great English
grain trade organ of a late date—the Mark
Lane Isigrees —since a single positive and
significant assertion in its views of the
situation, on the 7th of last month, is as
follows : "Bread goes a begging, while
many go a begging for bread; and while
some propose emigration es the great
source of relief to the country, no holder
of corn belie' , a that a diminished con
sumption will. increase the demand."
There we have it—that is the case of
eaters sought be relied upon by the illus.
iouists in regard to the exceeding value
of the. English market for the farmers of
Minnesota; for by this we learn that low
88 the mice of wheat is at present, the
ground down laboring population are too
poor to buy, and are recommended to ran
away from this very glut of foreign im
ports; this barren invitation to eat ex
tends to those who have no money. Let
us hear from the great English organ a
little further still : •
"The strange phenomenon is: Preyl
dence has made the earth teem with
plenty, that plenty instrumentally canard
by the baud of man, yet the laboring
Mon is destitute in the midstof abundance.
The Influence of English advicea has
every where been felt abroad. In France
they have rather cheapened, for wheat;
but not serioualy; and it Is the same It
Belgium, holland, Hsmbro, Stettin, Co
logne and Oltasa. The frost may Yet
hold on some time in Northern parts, In
Azor as well as in the lake ports and
Montreal; but then liberty to ship will
and very little encouragement without
an Improved range of 5, of which
there teems no immediate prospect"
That was the condition of the boasted
English markets at the last accounts,
and when we note that hardly one—thir
tieth of onr wheat crop ever gets over
there, that we eat up at home all but about
4 percent. of it; that of that grudgingly
admitted, the English paper admits the ,
the people are too poor to buy—and wr
have a condition of thinga so.very at
tractive that it is scarcely a wonder that
these partis ins of .England in thin coon
try seek to make its still more enamored
of their market for wheat.
And this is not all. While the free
traders are trying to make our peoph
fancy starvation and low pric2s, European
fas Lion, bemuse they propose "compel'
lion" with those people, 'one' of the re
markable features of the ease to look at,
Is the fact that tens of thousands of. these
same workers are fleeing front their own
happy condition to join us; to help eat
the bread they are denied a sight of on
the other side of the water.
Thine are cutalnly points for our pea ,
pie to consider, in casting about to ee
where they aro to obtain retie; but 11
demonstrates that wherever they look,
the Mark Lane Exprees seeks to shut the
door in the faces Many who propose too
earnestly to knock at it over there. Plainly
telling us that they'd° not want our little

early as last October laid down the p'an

is no 4:Location at all of responsibility save
and except only as to whether Colonel

The Cart Cr or a D. mon
Thorium D. Carr, who, on the 24th, at
St. Cialrsville. 0., tottered death on the
gallows, for the murderer laaisa C. Pox,
made, before his death, a confiaision
which leaves no doubt -of his guilt.
Though still young—he was born in
184 C—Ilia life has been full of
crimes and atrocities. The story that he
himself tells is terrible in the extreme.
lie served in the army during the war.
' lie . was in Canthritlge for two weeks to
drill, and dm log that time be had five
fights, and he Is sure that the residents of
that town have not thrgotten - "Corduroy."
Afterward he was sect down to Hunts
ville, afterward fighting limn in Wards
s ppi. Shortly niter this he was sent to
Columbue, to guard some prisoners. - He
says that, "instead of restraint', thought
I would stay in Cincinnati. I broke out
of Sycamore 13arracks, and in a few days
met Annie Whalen at the - Eighth street
Pork. I took her out to Carthage (a
small village north of Cincinnati,) where
we lived two weeks, when I sent her
back to Cincinnati and returned to my
command, alter an absence of sixty days.
When I reached it, near Deccard Sta.
tion, I was put in the guard-honse,
court-martialed, and sentenced to be
shot for desertion. One afternoon they
took me out to dig my grave, which I did,
making it four feet two Inches deep, and
two feet six Inches wide. Even then I
felt as unconcerned as over I did in my
life. God pity me I I didn't care, my
heart was so calloused and hard. I don't
even remember the date of Rut day,
because I cared so little about an event
that would almost craze some men. Bat
that Is neither here nor there. A petition
was sent l President Lincoln and I was
pardsned; was'rettuned to my regiment
with the welcome of the boys, who
treated can as well as ever.".
Joining afterward the IS:h
he deserted at Columbus, and only man
aged to secure a return to his own regi
meat by informing on a miasmata, who
was also a dourter. Ilia regiment was

He returned afterward to Columbus,
and there became engaged in a brawl In
a house of 111 fame; and he says he
knocked down one of the inmates and
loft her for dead. A. day or two after
he threw a bottle at a min In Newark,
and says he split his skull wide open.
The crime for which he was• executed
was the murder- 9k Miss Fox, a young
girl only fourteediteats of age, who had
refused to marry him. For this he was
tried, the evidence was found complete
and overwhelming, and he was convicted.
The case was afterwards taken to the
Supreme Court, but the decision of the
Court below was restarmed. When the
death warrant was read to him he laughed
loudly, and said "lie did not care a
d—n if it was to morraw."
