with yellow fever, once with camp fever

took daily exercise in the woods, among

chopping railroad ties, up to within the

a beautiful child about a year old. Some

forced open the door, and on going up
stairs beheld a horible spectacle. The
features of a-man and wife were distort

fant was at its mother's breast unconscious
of the awful fate of its parents. Medical
aid was promptly called, and after the
application of restoratives husband and
wife rallied a little, but the latter died
withie an hour. The husband, being of
a powerful constitution , struggled_o. -

with all the conveniences and comforts of

exemption from testraints of prison disci

disgraceful to the State, a criminal viola

and cannot fail to bring lasting discredit
on all by whose official interposition the
abuse may be corrected, and he deems it
his duty to call the mayor's attention to
the subject, as the parties who are thus
