Poor IIorsE. At a meeting held by the
Commissioner)), in this place, on Satuiday
lat, it waa unanimously resolved to postpone
the purchasing of a Farm for the employ
ment and maintenance of the poor. It ap
pears there are other townships, besides the
four that accepted the bill, that would like
to join in building the poor hou!e, but can
not do so without further legislation. They
ari shut entirely out, at present, by their
own action, over which many of them feel
like repenting. Bloom township, alone, had
better purchase a piece of land for the em
ployment of her paupers than to continue
supporting them after the present system.
But, there is no question about it, the more
go together in the new plan, the better it
will le for all concerned.

joyed the pleasure of witnessing the closing
exercises of the Spring term of the Blooms

of Prof. Carver. The" students performed
their parti in a very creditable manner, lx)th
to themselves ' and ; their preceptors. The
declaiming by the males was very good, con
sidering their age; the compositions by the
females were excellent and well read, and. by
their application to'ficts and circumstances
of the present; they undoubtedly were origi

The whole entertainment being interspersed
with music, both vocal and instrumental,
made it doubly interesting. , The closing re
marks, by Prof. Carver, were instructive,
polite, and very effective, and the fympathy
exhibited by the pupils went to show that

A ncsBAXD BrrcnEri his Wrre Am) Step
daughter WITH AN AXE.
fKom the Columbtii fMidi. Journal. June 19ih.1
' We are called Upon t'us evening to chron
icle one of those terrible cases of crime which
from time to time startle our peaceful com
munity, and make us question our individ
ual safety when such criminals are abroad in
our midst ." . ' , .
. Yestenlav afternoon a man named Isaac
Van Aucken, residing in the township of
Medina, killed bis wile and nerdaugnter with
an axe. The particulars, as we learn them
from the criminal himself, are substantially
as follows : ; .
He claims that a number of relatives of his
wife are leavued together as a band of thieves,
and that he has been made to suffer from
their depredations, having lo.t a horse, har
ness and other valuables, and having been
severely punished by his wife's brother about
two weeks since. That at times his wife
would appear to favor him, and then again
to seem linked in with her friends to com
plete his ruin.
Things had been going on in this manner
for some time, when vesterday afternoon the
subject was broached" in conversation. High
words ensued, lid censured his wife lor
turning from him to assist others in robbing
him of his possessions. His wife replied in
sultingly, and he made some demonstrations
toward offering her personal violence, but
two of his sous were present who entreated
of him. not to injure her and he desisted for
the time. The two women soon after started
for the back part of the house, closely follow
ed by the criminal. The conversation still
continued, and upon reaching the woodshed,
in replv to gome complaint of her husband,
Mrs. Van Aucken said : "There is the axe;
take it and finish me I"
Van Aucken replied. "I have been ham
mered once on your account, and I won't
suffer it again. As he spoke 4ie sprang tor
ward and dealt his wif j a blow on the head
with the axe. fellins lur to the srround. He
then started in pursuit of his step-daughter
and struck at her. but t he did not receive the
full force of the blow, and he passed on, for
a few steps, impelled by his own momentum,
lie returned to the cirl and struck her nnon
the head, killing her instantly. Fearing lest
the blow administered to hi wife had not
been sufficient to cause death, and that she
had cither fainted or was shamming, and be
ing determined on her destruction, he wont
to the place where sho lay and buried the
axe in lier throat, almost severing her head
from her body.
The prisoner is aboit forty ycars of age,
rather below the mediiura statue, with dark
hair, grey eyes, and sandy whiskers. He
was a well-to-do farmer, having a fine place,
under a good state of cultivation. A man
of nither ordinary education, but industrious
and enterprising, he was highly esteemed bv
his neighbors who were not connected with
the family on his wife's side.
A Man Murdered for Twelve Dollars
Prevalence of Crime in Chicago.
From the Chicago Tribune, June 20.J
Coroner Wagner held an inquest yesterday
forenoon on the bodv of a man named Wil
liam Downey, found floating in the river near
Ylrie street bridee, about five o'clock on Mon
day evening. The inquest was held at the
house of the deceased, corner of Division
and Vine stpeet. and the little evidence ad
duced thereat indicates mosteonclusivehtbe
recent commission of the foul double crime
of robbery and murder by some of the gang
of garrotters, highway robbers and assassins
who at the preseut time infest our city. It
appears that Downey has been a temperate
and industrious laboring man, regular in his
habits, and ever mindful in his conduct of
the responsibility resting upon him as a hus
band and parent.
There is, therefore, no ground whatever
for the supposition that he might hare met
his death in a drunken brawl, or by some ac
cident caused by intoxication but the man
ner of his death is not left to surmise. There
are fact which tell with painful plainness
the fearful story of a cold-blooded murder,
committed to effect a petty robbery. Down
ey left his house on Iriday evening last for
the purpose of collecting a small amount of
money due him for some labor he had per
formed, and from that time was seen no more,
until his corpse, covered with the filthy ooze
and slime of the river, and bearing marks of
a violent death, was brought home to his ag
onized widow and her two fatherless chil
dren. He is known to have obtained about
twelve dollars, and this is believed to have
been all the money in his possession on the
fatal evening, but upon his corpse no money
was found his pockets had not only been
emptied of their contents by the murderers,
but had been turned inside out, while his
forehead battered in bv a sluncr-shot ainar-
cntty, and his upper lip cut through by a
blow, completed the little circumstantial evi
dence, proving effectually that he hadjween
waylaid and murdered on his homeward way
for the mere pittance of money which he
Eossessed. The jury returned a verdict that
o "had been robbed and thrown into the
river by some person or persons unknown,"
and this is probably the last which will ever
be heard oi the horrible affair in this world.
3IiiiDER in Missouri The Murderer
IIuno r a Mob.
From the SL Lewis Democrat. June 19.
We loam from Dr. Hill, cf Carondelet,
the following "particulars of a tragic affair,
which occurred in the Columbian Bottom on
Sunday last :
On Sunday morning lat John Augustine,
an esteemed citizen oi' Carondelet, left that
city, in company with a friend, to visit some
friends at Columbia, Monroe county, Blinois.
JIc took a gun with liim for the purpose of
hunting on the road, after stoppung awhile
at Columbia, the two friends started back in
the afternoon. On the roadside, two miles
this side of Columbia, they came to a saloon
called "Fort Monroe," and went iu U get
some Foda. Two drunken men were in the
saloon, engaged in breaking the furniture
and tumblers ; not liking the appearance of
things. Augustine and his friend left the sa
loon without saying a word.
They were pursued by one of the ruffians,
named John Lane, who overtook Angustiuc,
wrenched his gun from his hands, struck
him on the head with it, and knocked hint
down. As he fell Lar3 struck him a second
blow with the gun, which broke his neck.
The friend of Augustine made his escape.
A short time after thisi brutal murder, Dr.
Payne passed along the road, and found Au
gustine lying-dead- Several others came up
and Lane was pursued., shot in the arm, and
after a desperate struggle captured and ta
ken to Columbia. He was taken before a
Justice of the Peace, who made out a war
rant, committing him to the county jail at
Waterloo to await examination on a charge
of murder. He was placed, in charge of a
constable and a strong guard to be conveyed
to Waterloo.
By this time the populace began to assem
ble iu Columbia t 1 was stated. that Lane
had murdered a woman and her child in the
Bottoms, about two years ago, and he was
known to be a desperate character. The
excitement increased &i the details of these
murders were narrated. The mob finally be
came furious . A charge was made upon
the wagon in which tha prisoner had been
placed, the constable ;nd the guard were
scattered, and the trembling ruffian and mur
derer was taken from the wagon, dragged
through the streets of Columbia to ft spot
half a mile west of the town, where a rope
was tied around his neck, and he was sus
pended to the limb of a tree until he expired.
After Lane was pronounced dead, his body
was cut down, aliole was dug in the jrround
thrown, hastily covered over with earth, and
a pileof stones heaped upon him to mark
the spot of his burial. a. These summary pro
ceedings were participated in by between
five and eix hundred people.
" Mr, Augustine leaves a wife in Carondelet,
but no children.

The Texas Election. .
, See how the Radicals are beginning to
quarrel about the politics of the Southern
States. We have only room to give an ex
tract from the New York Tribune, and the
comment by the New York Times, hereto
fore, both disunion papers, but evidently the
Times is backing down from its former Rad
ical position. " The Tribune says :
"Texas has just held her State election,
and Throckmorton, . "Conservative," is
chosen Governor. He was a slaveholder and
a rebel, but both Slavery and the rebellion
being dead we don't see what he wants to
conserve. The Times says this :
"As, in the eyes of Congress aud the Tri
bune, there is no merit in Southern loyalty,
what else but "Conservatism" can be ex
pected ? Tennessee and Arkansas are loyal,
but are held at arm's length. Their mem
bers of Conpess are devoted and loyal, but
have been fieft out in the cold' ' for eight
montlis. If good and true Representatives
had been admitted to their seats, we should
have different results in Southern elections.
Butj unhappily, we have changed sides. Se
cessionists endeavored to divide the Union.
W e resisted and defeated them. They sur
rendered their armies, dissolved their Gov
ernment, and offered to return to their alle
giance. JJut we. though during the war in
sisting that the Union was not and could not
be severed, now say that it is divided, and
that neither the Southern States nor their
Representatives shall be admitted into the
Union or into Congress unless they enter
throuirh the "needle's eve" held bv Tiiatv
Stevens. While loyal members of Comrress
from Southern States are reuulsed . and re
jected, what encouragement is there for loy
alty ? Even the good old man who endeav
ored in vain to beguile "rude boys" out of
ins appie-tree was prompted to try "what
virtue there was in stones." v
General News Items.
A few days ago the people in a neigh
borhood in Henry County, organized a Sun
day school, but the Radicals forbid the teach
ers to teach unless they should take the
oath. The school wa? broke u up.
The alleged eorruptionists of the New
J ersey Legislature were in Court on Tues
day, at Trenton, and were bound over till
October for trial. - -
A horrid murder occurred in Edinburgh,
Johnson County, Ohio on Friday. A soldier,
by the name of Dittman, murdered Martha
Bennett, with whom he had been living as
his wife. He shot her five times, beat her
with his revolver brutally, and then set fire
to her clothes to make his work sure. Ditt
man was arrested and lodged in jail.
Some genius has discovered perpetmd
motion.- It consists in the perpetual mo
tions of the. Rump Disunionists to amend
the Constitution, so as to secure perpetual
power for themselves. The machine works
admirably so long as the people are kept
away from it
Nebraska has gone Democratic. The
Democratic majority in the Legislature, on
joint ballot, is 8, securing the election of two
