Everything was now ready for the
completion of the final act of the bloody
tragedy, in whicli the conviots lisd played
such a terrible part. The ropes had been
adjusted around the necks of the victims,
and but a few moments were to elapse cro
their souls would bo ushered inlo eterni
ty. Still Fife's coolness forsook liim not,
He called such of them around him as lie
knew on the scaffold, and shook them
affectionately by the hands, ne then
declared that, "with the help of God, he
would dio like a man," and with .1 firm
voice, in which the slightest tremor was
not disrernable, exclaimed: "Itemember,
I die game." He then turned to hts com
panion in guilt, who at this timu was
Hcarcely coiiBriotts, ana putting 1113 arm
around hcr,kissed hcr. Hoth then declared
themselves roady to die, and tho signal
being given, the Sheriff touched the
spring, and the souls of the guilty couple
were launched into eternity. Fife fell
straight down, and died without a strug
gle, hut Charlotte's death was less easy,
And fully ton minutes elapsed ere the pul
sations of her heart ceased. Fife's heart
ceased to beat within live minutes from
the time the drop lell.
AlTEAltANCi: OP THE CONVICTS OK TUE
Fife's appearance on the gallows dif
fered but, little from that whicli he pre
sented while in prison, lie woro the
same" elothes as usual, but appeared to
have dressed with greater care. Charlot
te was attired in herordmary clothing.and
wore over all a buff colored shroud. She
seemed haggard and palo and looked the
very peisoniheation ol misery.
During the arrangements for the exe
cution, it became necessary to adjust
prbpcrly the rope on the neck of one of
the convicts, and some person, whoac
name wo have not learned, but wiio was
dressed as a harlequin, the belter to dis
guise himself, was deputed to do it. in
the discharge of his duty, lie had neces
sarily to touch Fife, but the latter pushed
him away, and dreiv his hand to strike
him. Uis heart, wicked as it was,rcvoll-
d at the idea of being touched by 11
hireling of this character, and his indig
nation was evident ; but a gcnllc touch
from Jailor Phillips restored him at once
to gentleness, and ever after he submitted
without murmuring to such arrangements
as wero deemed necessary to carry out
Ihe sentence ol the law.
DISPOSITION 01' TUT. BODIES.
The bodies were allowed to hanir some
twenty-five minutes, after which it being
evident that life was extinct, they were
cut down and placed in two coffins pro
vided lor the purpose. Charlotte request
ed that they might be buried in one coffin
but as this could not be conveniently
done, hcr request was not complied with.
A relative of Charlotlo'w is in the city,
waiting to receive the bodies and take
them to Monongahala city, for interment.

The following (sketch of Jefferson's
personal appearance and habits is from
Dr. Randall's life of that eminent man,
the first volume of which hae recently
been published :
"Mr. Jefferson was generally; hdwev-
cr, rather a favorite with tlio other sex,
and not without reason. His aiipcaranco
was engaging. His face, though angu
lar and far from beautiful, beamed with
intnlliijonro, with bcncvolancc and with
tho cheerful vivacity of a llajipy, hopeful
spirit. His complexion was rud I', and
delicately fair ; his reddish cllesliiut hair
luxuriant atid silken. His full, deep-set
eyes, the prevailing color of which was a
light hazel, (or flecks of hazel on a
ground-work of grey,) were peculiarly
expressive, and mirrored, as the clear
1 lake mirrors the cloud, cvCry emotion
which was passing through his mind.
Ho stood oix feet two and a half inches
in height, aild though very slim at this
period, his form was erect and sinew-ay,
and his movements displayed elasticity
and vigor. He was an expert musician,
a fine dancer, a dashing rider, and there
was no manly exercise in which he could
not play well his part. His manners
were unusually graceful, but simple and
cordial. His conversation already pos
sessed no inconsiderable share of that
charm which, in after years, wasso much
extolled by friends and to which enemies
attributed so seductive an influence in
moulding the young and the wavering to
his political views. There was a frank
ness, earnestness and cordially in its tone
a deep sympathy with humanity a
confidence in man, aud a sanguine hope
fulness iu Iiis destiny, which irresistibly
won upon the feelings not ouly of tho
ordinary hearer, but of those grave men
whose commerce with the world had
perhaps led them to form less glowing
estimates of it of such mun aSthoschol-

subjugated by habitual control. Yet,
under its even placidity, there wero not
wanting those indications of ralm self
icliaiice and courage which all instinc
tively recognize and respect. There is
not an instance on record of his having
been engaged in a personal rconntre, or
his having suffered a personal indignity.
