About 101 o'cleck on Monday, Mr
Enochr Sperry, of Woodbridge. , left his
home, and was proceeding through a piece I
of woods near his honse, with his horse
and sleigh, and, when • near a little brimk,

him again with the head of the - axe upon
the back of hie head, and then deliberately
attempted to chop oft his head, neirly sev
ering it front his body. It was connected
with his body only by a little skin at the
bank of the neck. -
'fhe horse of Mr. 9;ierry was allowed
to pass on the read, and atter proreeding
by the honse of Mr. Slam! F. Perkins,
halted at * shed near by. Mr. Perkins
thinking all was not right, went in search
of Mr. Sperry. and found his body lying

he had been waylaid and murdered.
Mr. Perkins alarmed the neighborhood,
and having procured. assistance, took the
body Of Mr. Sperry to his tinnily. who live
only a about hundred rods from the place
where the murder was committed.
In the evening the murderer was arrested
and taken to Jail, end confessed that he had
not only , murdered Mr. Sperry, but that
he also murdered Mr. Inhabud Umberfield,
who livedubout a mile'east of Mr, Sperry's

would chop their heads-of also.
He went out of 'the house to wipe the

SErrriarENTAhtsst.—Miss Swissho m,
in noticing the publictition of a new love
tory, says ; • .
."MI that stuff about woman's love, has
been Said over and (iv& again a hundred
thousand tintes,to the. great detriment of
the best , interest of humanity. There is' '
no kind of necessity, for , using the press to
persuade silly girls that it is very remade
and womanly to love a seoundrel—to leave
her affections unguarded by reason or ex
perience, and drift helplessly into sin,
shame and despair, as an evidence of her
,unsuspecting womanhood.
gilt is not -true that, woman's affections
are any stronger or more durable than
man's. We think the opposite is the case
end that two-thirds of all the women who
. pine away or die of love, do so for the want
of something Wier to do. Every thing
calculated to make love-sickness a femin
ine aqrirement is a great injary ; but to
strew thepath of the suicide with the flow
ers of poesy and romance, is in a high de
gree reprehensible.
"The best motto to guard young girls
through the mazes of love is, , Do right,
and trust in God.' A young girl who has
done no wrong, has little cause to mourn
over the fickleness of a pretended lover.—
Better he should change his mind before
than after marriage." • '
This is the best common sense we have
ever beard uttered upon-the subject.

this long expected publication has been laid on
our table, entitled "The Testimony of an E
scaped Novice." Miss BUNKLEY, it will be re
membered, made her escape from the Convent
near Emmitsburg daring the past year, under
circumstances which attracred considerable
attention. The Mother Superior of St. Jo
seph's published a letter, shortly after the
escape, contradicting some of the representa
tions of Miss BIiNKLEY, and thereby raising an
issue of veracity between them. This work,
we are told in the preface, is the result of the
issue thus raised by the Mother Superior, and
purports to be a plain, unvarnished story of
Miss BUNKLET'S personal experience while an
inmate of the Convent, her escape, and subse
quent incidents. It is edited with mtfch abili
ty and with an evident determination to guard
against any suspicion of exaggerated or false
narration. There is an absence of startling de
velopment in tits hook, which will probably
disappoint expectation in some quarters but
the portraiture of Convent life, its austere
ruled, and repulsive features, as illustrated in
Miss BnNKinn'a personal experience, and
fully supported by the editor in .freauent quo
tations from publications by approved Catho
lic writers, cannot full to indict a severe blow
on the whole Convent system. To Miss
IitMtLEY'S narrative the editor has added sev
eral chapters Illustrating the workings of simi
lar institutions in Europe. 'Tha whole work
carries with it an air of truthfulness and prob
ability which will commend it to popular con
fidence. It has already had an immense sale,

Bina lIRB. EDITORS r—A part from the super )
human felicity of a sleigh ridO with a lively
company of ladies and gentlemen, there is al
waya something necessary to afford pleasure
and amusement at the place of destination.—
We most happily found this to our taste on a
recent sleighing excursion to Emmitsburg,
in the entertainment afforded at "Devit's Ho
tel." The House is commodious, and every
attention bestowed upon its guests by the pro
prietor. The table is plentifully furnished
with rich viands and graced with the presence
of very agreeable boarders. During the even
ing musicians were procured and all Joined, in
the "merry, merry dance." Thus passed the
evening of the Ist day of the year amid song
and dance and social chat, until the "wee,
small hours o' the night" bade us end the
glee. Deeply impressed with the sincere hos
pitality of our kind hostess and the ladies of
Emmitsburg, and with a desire to reciprieute
the favor we gave them a hearty good night,
were cozily seated in our sleigh, and,altnost in
the crack of a whip were landed in •
tar A meeting of the "Independent Blues"
for business and drill, will be held this even
ing, at ei o'clock, at the Armory.
llak..An election for Railroad Directors will
be held at the Court.honso on Monday next.

We copy the following sketch of the life of a
very extraordinary man, from an editorial in
N. Y. Sun :
"As an illustnoion'or business tact and talent,
we ratty point to the career of Profess. r Hine
LOWAT, the proprietor of the most popular
medicine of the ago. The rise and progress
of this extraordinary man have had no parallel
during the present century. He has visited
nearly every Court of Europe, and obtained
permission for the sale of his preparations
from most of the crowned heads of the Old
World. The queens of Spain and Portugal,
the kings of Naples and Sardinia, granted hint
audiences; and in St. Petersbnrg, which city ho
visited a short time before the commencement
of the war, he was treated with marked consid
eration by the late Czar and the nobility. .
"Travelling in an elegant private carriage,
attended by a courier, his equipage attracted
attention in the towns and villages through
which he passed. The hotels where ho lodged
were besieged by persons of the first distinc
tion, and the best society on the continent cour
ted his acquaintance.
"The subject ofthese remarks is unquestion
ably an ambitious man, and his skill and en
terprise have placed him far in advance of al l
hiS predecessors and contemporaries in the
same profession. He stands alone ; and tho
fact that he can maintain his high position, des
pito the interested assaults of envy and pre
gumption, proves that his medicines have . an
intrinsic value, which the world understands
and appreciates.

the sea is not so remarkable as the people
in its neighborhood, who are said to read
and write ; have .no idols ; are generally
serious, aid, sensible people, and profess
to believe in God, and have no tincture of
of Mohamedanism. From whom did they
learn these things, or ie it a traveller's

tributed to President Pierce of being a
candidate for reelection. The Star says :
"On the Bth inst., Democratic State' Con

These facts have caused a terrible commo.

all shades now assembled in Washington.
Very little is seen of -it on the surface of
things, but there is already a heaving to

result in a great bubbling and seething
on the surface, It is now very certain
that there will be at least four gentlemen
prominently urged for the nomination—
Mr. Hunter, of Virginia ; Mr. Buchanan,
Mr. Dallas, and last, but by no means least
important in hie strength beim the Con

McCracken's Invaluable Remedy .
AI FTER many. years of- laborious research
and experiment, I have . the gratification
to announce to Chosen( the public who may be
afflicted with baldnem or premature I vey hair,
thatl have succeeded in the preparation of an
article that is an infallible remedy for either of
these disorders.. For a consiterable length
of time I have been in the habit of using it up
on my own elastomers, and in no instance has
it failed to render tbe most entire insight:that.
Having long entertained the belief that, in a
vast majority of eases, Baldness and prema
ture greyness *ere induced by disease, or want
of vigor and vitality of the scalp, rather than
being the necessary consequence of mete ac
cumulation of pears.
My whole attention was directed to the iris•
emery of some preparation, which, by remov
ing the dandruff and other foreign matter
which, in spite of the utmost precaution, will
collect upon the scalp, would marine ,this
part all its riper and vitality, and thu?remove
the great cause of both these diseases. In
offering this preparation to the public, I have
full confidence that it will not disappoint the
expectations of many who may feel inclined to
give it a fair and impartial triaL •
.It more ef
fectually, than any other preparation, removes
the, dandruff and - cleanses the head, thus re
moving all obstacles to the growth of a new
and luxuriant crop of hair. For the. prema
ture grey, it restores to the hair the free arm
lation of its natural fluid, and, in an almost in
credibly short time, bring s in it its natural
healthfulness and color. Although this prep
oration has never been brought before the
public through the medium of adrertiang, yet
by its own inherent virtues, it has won its way
into favor in many of the counties of this and
neighboring States. At the sailieilation of
many of .my friends and patrons who hare
been benefitted lir it, I have beed induced to
give it to the public, and in doing this, I do it
with theconedent assurance that any :homey
try - it, will find it to passers all the merit claim
ed for it.
