friend Laurens, , it is, perhaps equally as
true. ' " • ,
I was journeying to the city of Washing
ton in company with a; friend ; a Georgian
boy, like myself. We went, as thousands
have gone before an_itaince, to try our luck
at offiee.hunting. You are well aware
That the, road from Georgia to Washington
passed through the Palmetto State, a State
distinguished for the fertility. of. its soil, as
well as for the wealth,. chivalry, and i,ntel,
ligence of her sons. Here the Major wink
ed knowingly at the company with one eye,
while ho kept the other fixed. ,on tho South
Carolinian. I thought myself a smart ,
traveller, young then, but compared with
my companion I was as green' as
He was naturally sharp, as a briar, and ex
perience had polished his wits to the keen
ness of a cambric needle. His game was
Cobb, Willey Cobb.
We started from home on a capital of
$3OO. It was all that we could rake to.
gether. But we had a couple of stout
Georgia ponies; and this, we concluded,
would be ,enough to put us through to
Washington and back.
If we're stumped, said Cobb, we can
sell the cattle.:
• Unfortunately, before entering the Pal
metto State it was our luck to pass thro'
the town of Augusta, on the Georgia side.
Augusta has always been considered „a
brisk little place. We found it so. Not
being in a hurry we agreed to stay over
'ght and nest day. We had fallen in
with some very agreeable acquaintances.
We got to playing; at 'first a ninepenny po
ker—then a quarter dollar 100- r -then brag;
and finally our Augusta friends introdu
ced us to the interesting game of faro.-- 7
We played all night, and by day-break had
depositedour three hundred dollars in the
bank, where it stayed! .
What's to be done? said I.
. Pin thinking, said Cobb.
Sel,l the ponies and start back! said I.
No such thing Ats rply responded Cobb.

A shir "pair of pistols, a plug of to
bacco and a bowie,-was my reply.
We must sell the bowie first, said Cobb,
it tvjll pay our tavern bill, and get, us out
Of this infernal hole I
• And. what neat--on to Washington ? I
enquired. • •
Of course, -said Cobb, we
; would look
wise turning back—We would. certainly ,be
the,standing joke of the county, added hp;
But can we travel without funds? said L
That .we will have to find out, said
Cobb, with a look as cheerful and happy
as if lie had relays of horses all along the
road to Washington, and his bill paid at
every tavern along the route.

at the end- of the first stage from, - here, we
can stop all night. with him; that won't
cost anything;..beyond that wo must trust
to the • hospitality of farmers; I
~think wo

stick in.the tar—womust travel through
the turpentine State on the proceeds of your
pistbls ; but 'let. us dispose of your bowie,
and get out of this' sharper's nest, ; ,
As Cobb was my senior, and inlyty es
tinatttion a great genius, I of course acqui
eseedille sold the,bowie knife to one of
our gambling- friends for six dollars, the
tavern bill was liquidated, leaving a ,few
Shillings in our joint, purse, and With this
we took the road through to South Caro
r 0
At the end of the first day we stopped
with Cobb's friend, and . were hospitably
entertained. Cobb felt a strong incliria
tion to borrow from him,..but he could not
bring himself to confess the caaso of our
necessity; Ho. had a high idea of } his tra
velling talents, and did not wish to ac
knowledge ho had been outwitted, by the
Augusta sharpers. We left ,his friend's
house therefore, after, an excellent break

without an increase of our fintinees..;

next after that; the'landlord of the house,
ivhich.Was a tavern,. threatened to', levy
upon our saddlebags, which, he. certainly
would have done, but Cobb told him Very
significantly that they contained only a

and might go off. •Asif to assure him that

But Cobb was six feet two with a.pair of

,the landord c9ncluded to let

leaped in our saildles'and rode 'off:

From tho rennovivenian of Bep:omber 17th.
On Saturday evening, about half-past
seven o'clock, Louis Rod, a young Ger
man, seed about 21 years, was murdered
by Charlotte Levering, an Irish woman,
aged about 20 years. The parties were
engaged in the Mount Pleasant rcfrectory,
at the corner of Ninth and Lodge alley,
above Chesnut street. The deceased was
the cook of the establishment, and the
woman Levering was employed in the
culinary department of the house. A
great intimacy had for some time existed
between them. At various periods they
had quarrels which were made up again.
On Saturday evening, a new difficulty"a
rose between them, the precise cause of
which is not known. The cook ordered
her to clean oir a table, which she refused
to do. Mutual recrimination passed' be
tween them ; and the woman, Charlotte
Levering, seizing a large carving knife,
the blade of which was twelve or thirteen
inches in length, threatened to stab him
if he repeated .his words. He bared his
breast and invited the blow, and the wo
man immediately plunged the knife in his
body. The bladeentercd below the heart.
making a dreadful wound., Mr. Debau
fre, one of the proprietors of the house,
hearing the noise rushed below, and enter
ed the kitchen just as Rod fell back from
the effects of the blow, and caught him in
bis arms. The gash was horrible, and
the man died' in less than five minutes af
ter its infliction, having iq, vain tried to
speak. The Woman, Charlotte, escaped,
but was pursued by one of the waiters in'
the establishment, who caught her in
Lodge alley and arrested her.
. The Coroner held an inquest on the bed=
dy, the jury rendered a verdict "that the
deceased, Louis Rod, came to his death
by wounds inflicted at the hands of Char
lotto Levering "
The murderess was taken to the north
east lockup, and the body of Rod taken
in charge by the Coroner. A hearing of
the woman will take place this meriting
before. Mayor Swift. She subsequently
escaped, during the exciternot, and iii the
street enquired for the residence of Mayor
On being informed, she repaired
to his house, rang the bell, enitTed, and
told the Mayor that she had killed Rod.—
The Mayor thought her insane, but finally.
Olt for. an officer, and had her secured.
•'• Finra thin I'enneyl"l iinn of Septernb , t 1811,‘
gurclei' of liod,—The excitement, rel
ative to the dreadful tragedy at the corner
of Ninth street and Lodge alley,. Was
somewhat increased yesterday, in cons°.
tiuthiee of a suppoSed hearing of the mur
deress, before Mayor Swift. The crowd
about the police office was numerous, ev
ery avenue being blocked up with an ex
cited multitude. Charlotte Levering;
tli• accused, is rather a good-looking
young Irish wornan, but from her counte.
twice, one is led to suppose that she has
been the child of misfortune. She was
married, during the summer of 1848, to a
sailor, who shortly after deserted her,
when she made her home at a house in
Water street, above Chestnut. Complaint,
ofthe harsh treatment received from her
husband, was made at the police office, soon
after, marriage. She has also resided ut
a number of other places in the city and
districts. 'Charlotte alleges, that it was
:far -from her intention to murder young
.Rod, :and feels her deplorable situation.
Yesterday, she was committed to Moya
mousing prison, but will have a hearing
before • Mayor Swift to-morrow morning,
At 10. o'clock.

ted herself with Marked propriety: 'ln,
the month of; May last, she'married. a sai,
tor, named McKaig, who, shortly after the
interesting ceremony was performed,. ship ! .
ped in the U. S. ship Independence; bound !
for the Mediteranean. Previous to his
departure, he left an allotment licket, of
half pay to her, at the office of'Williain.
Sloanaker, Esq., Navy Agent. In conse
quence of her 'marriage ' she left the fami ,
ly of Mr. Hanson, and has been living in
different places since that time. Shoal.,
ways acted an honest part towards those,
with whom she lived.
About six weeks or two months. ago, she,
' engaged to do,work in the kitchen, at the,
Hotel, comer of Ninth street and Lodge
alley, and it was here that Lewis Rod saw
her for the first time. He was struck,
with her beauty, made certain advances,
and of be deeply in love with her.
She did not divulge her marriage to any,
one about the establishment, and the.-ad=
vances made by Rod, up to a, certain time,
were not improper. He finally grew
more desperate, and finding that she . would
not yield to his desires, ho became cross
and sullen, and exhibited considerable
jealousy if any other men about the place
happened to speak to her.
If she went from the kitchen up to the
yard, he dogged her' footsteps; and even
went so far as to go to one of her acquain.;
tances, where he made groat pretenti94
of love for her. She did not..return:ink
passion; and consequently ho would
der her about as though she was a mem
serf, and treat her with indignity. ThO
report that ho had illicit intercourse with
her, is not founded iii fact. It was in con-
sequence of repelling his dishonorable at.
tempts, that he became angry with her,
Such were the gross insults heaped Upon
her, that two weeks ago, she expressed .;
desire to a friend, to quit the place, r
was on the look-out for an engagemet:
a respectable family, at the time she s
the final blow.
A strong aspect in the case is,
defended and sustained her own honor,
several occasions; and finally, in a leo : ,
ment of madness, goaded to that 1•64 t.
