The Democracy of this the 22d Judi

with the Judgeship question for some

On TwEftFay last the Dinnnick Judi

A llcspjution declaring M. !I. Dimmick
the unanimous choice of the Convention
was offered, but was not agreed to
the Wayne County Conferees dissenting.
During the time the Dimmick men were
holding their Convention, the auti-Dim-mick
men held theirs in this place, and
nominated the lion. James 31. Pouter,
of Northampton, and adopted Resolu

able person for President Judge of this
District. The proceedings of their Con-

Wf " -A- merchant of this city," (says
the New Orleans Crccent-) a few mouths
since, took lo his home and heart a youth
ful bride, and went to reside in the fourth
District. Wishing to live in privacy,
he engaged only one servent a fresh
green girl, from the Emerald Isle. She
took the fever, and in a few days died.
Another was hired, and shared the same
fate. A third and a fourth filled the va
cancy in the household, and followed in
succession tfie sweeping summons of the
same fell destroyer. Following the im
pulse of natural droad, the merchant went
to Mobile to avoid the destructive
visitation of the scouragc, and the next
day hurried his young and beautiful
bride. Disgusted with a home where
naught but-empty chambers served to call
up, the" memories of departed joj's, he re
turned to the city to sell out his house
hold, determined to have a locality to him
so suggestive of sorrow. Ho died the
next day. When our informont visited
the premises, there was but one living

Riot in Ohici
It was reported a few days ago that a
serious riot had occurred at Somerset,
Ohio, at an exhibition of Welch's Hippo
drome. The Columbus Statesman of the
10th inst. gives the following account:
The cause of the disturbance was a
pipe. An Irishman was smoking a pipe
in Welsh's Hippodrome. He was reques
ted by a showman to stop, as it was "dis-
ffustful' to the ladies, lie refused.
The Showman then threatened to put
him out, which threat ended in the show
man being put out by several Irishmen.
The showman was pretty severely hand
died, but was rescued by other showmen
standing near. An Irishman was killed
in the melee, which so exasperated the I
rish of the neighborhood, at work on the
railroad, that the' arose in a body, seized
the arms of State, got the cannon, rammed
it with railroad spikes and stones, and
were about to fire on the show and show
men, but for a rat-tail file which , some
boy had spiked the touch-hcle with.
The Governor's proclamation, as we
understand, was issued, requiring the
Sheriff of Perry to retake the State arms
at all hazards. He sent to Zanesville and
Lancaster for troops. The Zanesville
company, commanded by Captain Gra
ham, arrived in Somerset at six o'clock
last night, and as wc hear, proceeded to
disarm the rioters. Fourteen Irishmen
so runs the rumor, were shot down bv
the Zanesville troops. "We hear, too,
that one showman, an offensive fellow.
was shot, in'an alley, when taking care of
his horses, and that another had his face
severclj injured by a bullet. Another
had his teeth smashed in. The Hippo
drome had one man and six horses kil
led. ' Later intelligence informs us of the
arrest of the murderer of Welch's man,
and the ringleader of the riot. The pub
lic arpis have been recovered, and all is
The paragraph which follows, from the
N. Y. Tribune, of Wednesday, developcs
a lamentable instance of crime in a man
of high social position and fine mental
endowments. He was also conspicuous
in the political world, and was last fall
selected as the Whig candidate for Sec
retary of the State of New-York. The
Tribune says :
The particulars of the heavy forgeries,
which we have heretofore kept back out
of regard for the parties interested, are
now so publicly mentioned that fur
ther silence is useless. Mr. James C.
Frostyth left here very suddenly in the
last steamer for Europe. It is now
charged that he had committed forgeries
to the amount of 8100,000 to $150,000,
principally upon "his father and father:in
law, and obtained the money from King
ston, Hudson, Albany and New York.
On the-day that he left he sold 86,000,of
paper to brokers, which has since been
paid by his friends. Mr. F. had always
stood high, and in money matters had ex
tensive credit, producing as occasion re
quired, large amounts of the best securi
ties. Gambling was probably the cause
of his delinquency. He owed $3,000 to
one of the most notorious villains of the
"profession" in this City a fellow who
ought long ago to have been in the State
Prison, and who would have been if our
Police system did not rather protect than
disturb his hell. Mr. Forsyth left his
family in this City.

Freieztcd ILcap al llm Falls of Ki-i
We have received a singula narration
of a narrow escape of life at the Falls of
Niagara. Mr. E. V. Wilson, of this city,
of lightening-rod notoriety, went to the
Falls with a party, and among the num
ber was Mrs. N. L. Piper (of the firm of
II. Piper & Brother.) The lady, at the
time, was laboring slightly uuder a spe
cies of insanity. It was thought by her
husband that travelling and a change of
air and scenery would do her good, but,
unfortunately, such was not the case.
Immediately upon arrival she was very
ilcsirous to see the Falls; and while stand
ing on the Cauada side, at about twenty
feet from the falling sheet of water, she
slipped her arm from Mr. Wilson, and
rushed towards the precipice. He rushed
after her, and just as she was going over,
he caught hold of her dress, and by it
held her danakng in the air. Ihe dress
gave way, and she fell upon a ledge of
rock at a distance of twenty ieet. As
she thus lay, Wilson, our narrative says,
"with great presence of mind looked for
a soft place," and discovering that a quan
tity of loose earth was lying on the rocks,
he immediately jumped down on it. He
was just in time to save her from going
over the main precipice. By the aid of a
pair of long lines, belonging to a team
close by, they were both drawn up togeth
er. Both suffered from some contusion,
but neither was seriously hurt. These
circumstances took place on Thursday

The Execution of Kees W. Evans.
The execution of Rees W. Evans, who
was convicted of the murder of Louis
Keese, of Wilkes-barre, at the April ses
sions of the Luzerne County Court, took
place in the jail yard on the 9th inst., at
1 o'clock in the afternoon. The event was
one which had filled the mind of the peo
ple with pity, even in the face of all his
guilt. From early in the day, until the
body of the deceased wa3 removed from
the scaffold, every available elevation was
eagerly sought by the curious crowd,in or
der that a view of the convict in his last
and trying moments might be obtained.
The neighboring trees and house-tops
were resorted to by such numbers as to
bend them beneath their burdens. The
fear of dancer had fled, and every breast
seemed to be. filled by the palpitations of
its own heart. 'About one hundred per
sons were admitted into tho yard, and a-
mon" the number we noticed the father of
young Evans. To all appearance, he was
les3 moved by the spectacle than many
who were not bound to tho victim by the
tics of kindred blood. The murderer
dressed in citizen clothes, was conducted
to the scaffold surrounded by the milita
ry under Capt. Beichart by Sheriff Pal
mer, accompanied by the llov. Dr. Peck,
Bev. John Boyd, and and Bev. B. B.
Emory. Fervent and impressive prayers
were delivered by the two former of the
clergymen. We havo received the one
by Dr. Peck, of which the following is a
"O Lord God, wc would approach thee
on this solemn and awful occasion, with
the deepest reverence and self-abasement.
Grant us the forgiveness of our sin?, and
gracious acceptance through the merits
of Jesus Christ our Lord. Wc pray thee
in thine infinito mercy, to look favorably
upon him who is about to pass the bounds
of time and go into a state of retribution.
O "rant him free repentance and un
feigned faith that he may find mercy at
thy h and. We thank thee that thou hast
provided a way of salvation for all classes
of sinners, who with hearty repentance
and true faith turn unto thee. O, Al
mighty Father, give hjiin an assurance of
salvation ana save una num wiu maims
of death. May he bid adieu to all earth
ly things in peace with God and with all
mankind. We thank thee for the hope
in Christ which thou hast vouchsafed to
to him in this hour of trial. Now, O

After bidding him farewell the clergy
man left the scaffold to the sheriff for the
perform ancc of his solemn duty. After
the rope had been adjusted, a mask was
drawn over the head of the prisoner, and
he stood alone in the attitude of prayer
which from the motion of his lips, seemed
to increase in fervency as the warnings of
the executor assured him of his near ap
proacli to death. The crowd stood in
breathless silence at the last announce

the fatal prop had fallen, and law and
justice had seized their dowry, and the
transgressor had paid the penalty of his
evil deeds. He met Ins fate with a forti
tudo which surprised all who saw him.
His physical appearance and health did
not appear to be much effected by his
confinement or the goadings of a guilty
conscience. The hope of either escape
or Executive clemency continued strong
with him until a few days before the one
fixed for his cxecutin. He uttered not a
word that could be heard by the audi
ence while upon the ecaffold. After
hanjiinjr about ten or twelve minutes and
pronounced dead by Dr. T. W. Miner,
the body was then taken charge of by his
relatives aud conveyed to Pittston, where
it was interred in the hurrying ground
of the Welsh Congregational church. A
full confession of his life and crimes has
been published, and a curiosity of tho
mostifcxeiting character has been gratified
by its perusal. The rapidity with which
crime succeeds crime, when the cata
logue has been commenced, is strikingly
illustrated in the case of this young
Evans, according to his story was born
in Carbondale, on the 3d of August, 1834,
and was of Welsh parentage. Being left
in early life to the inclinations of his own
headstrong disposition, which, accompani
ed by a desire to fare sumptuously with
out labor, or honest exertion, may be re
garded a3 the influences which hurried
him to his tragical end. Petty thefts
were his first offences, and a frequent
repetition of these, soon prepared him for
more daring acts of the same nature, un
til his numerous and profligate desires
could find no means of satisfaction but
through murder. For several 'ears he
resided in Pittston, where he committed

to take the life of his brother-in-law John
Howel. The object he had in view as to
Hodge was the possession of a valuable
gold watch. Ilowel's oft'encc waalhe a

The history and fate of the deceased

Dr. Cooper, of this borough, claims to
have discovered a certain cure for this
terrible complaint. In consequence of
the inability of patients to take liquids,
he has reduced the ingredients to an ex
tract and then into pills. It is said to be
a soverign remedy. The receipt is Al
coholic extract of Red Chickwced and
Skullcap in equal parts, made into four
grain pills; three given thrco times a day
for nine days. Spasms will be stopped in
twenty-four hours; and tho contiuuence
for nine days is to prevent a relapse, by
bracing up the system against tho disease.
