excitement prevailed among the public of the
city, sad the hanging of Mrs. Grinder was
the topic of coaventuion everywhere. The
murder foi which Marechall and Freake were

Mrs, Grinder perished to day, was the em

after her return home she was seised with
violent purging. and •tomitings, attended by
the most intense burning pain. As soon as
she bad reoevered sufficiently she went home
to her father% in Newcastle. Mr. Caruthers
returned immediately •to Allegheny. Mrs.
Grinder met him with a cordial welcome, and
endeavored to make the time of kis wife's at.. ,
mos as pleasant as possible. She cooled
appetising meals for him, and had him to tea
in her own house. Very soon he was seised
with the same symptoms as his wife. Mrs.
Grinder was unremitting in her care and at
tentions. Every article of food, and drink,
end every. dose of medicine for the sick man
was prepared and administered by her. The
sick man continued to grow ripidly worse,
and at last his wife was telegraphed to come
to him, as he was believed to be dying. She
came, and was perfectly well, having recov
ered her health entirely during her absence.
Mrs. Grinder met her with tender sympathy,
and in order that the young wife might bestow
undivided attention upon her husband, her o&

when she was taken violently dolt nil • with

friend and untiring =tree, and lost no oppor
tunity in edministering to the needs ef the
young husband and wife. On the 16th of
July Mrs. Caruthers again took tea with Mrs
Grinder, and was immediately seized with a
renewal of all her previous most violent sOf
ferings. She c•mtinued to suffer the most ex
cruciating torture and ta pow rapidly wore.
mail the Ist of August when death released
her. During her entire eicknesi Mrs. Grinder
remained her constant nurse. No article of
food, no portion of medicine was administered
to the sick couple by, any hands but hers, if
she could prevent it, Even the ice and the
milk of the family eke was destroying were
taken in charge by ifer, sod, unmoved by the
terrible tcrtures she was inflicting, and the
sad pleadings of the dying woman for some
pure w)Ker to quench the horrible burning
the poison caused, she still continued to apply
the poison in every shape. Even in dressing
a Mist ._r on the poor girls breast, she could
not refrain from sprinkling the cursed powder
on the burning surface I This wu one of the
murders which Mrs. Grinder committed, and
the one for which she (lied.
Mn the 24th day of October Muth& Grinder
was put on trial for her life, before Judges
Sterrett and Stowe. .11e-trial was protracted
through six days, during which time the court
room was crowded to suffocation every day,
with indignant end excited men and women.
The utmort .excitement and bitterns,. pre
vailed. People could hardly refrain, a por
tion of the time, from seizing the terrible
woman and tearing her to pieces. The evi
dence en the trial was fairly crushing in its
immense, accumulation and conclusive characi•
ter. The woman was preyed, .not only to
have killed, and made'attempts to kill; bat to
have experimented at random with her devil
ish arts. The entire neighborhood, end every
body that came in her way, were made to
illustrate the powers of her drugs, and when
she set out in earnest to billebe did it
such relentless cruelty ; not murdering by
one stroke, but killing her victims lingering
in th'e very excess of agony, and 'seeding to
takes mamas and horrible interest in noting
bow much they coulil endure and how long
she could keep them alive. Her demeanor on
the trial was moat singular and remarkable.
The self sustaining power she evinced was
marvelous. ' She set unmoved by the slightest
eppearanue cf emotion while the moat damn.
ing revelations were made against her, When
a shudder ran through the entire court room
as some new atrocity was developed, she eat
calm and placid. When the bereaved itus
band, in a voice broken by sobs, described
the terrible sufferings and tragic death of his
wife, Mrs. Grinder was almost the only one
who did not weep: At last the trial eoncleded,
and the jury returned a verdict of I st:Ratty of
murder in tho first degree " On Saturday,
November 4, Mrs Grinder was brought into
court and sentenced to death. She received
her sentence not is she .endured the trial,
with perfect. composure, but with tears and
moans. On the - sth of December the death
warrant was received, fixing the time of her
execution for to day.
For some days after the reception of her
death warrant. Mrs. Grinder was exceedingly
unwell and very much depressed. Many
thought tbs,t she would never live to see the
day of her execution. it was believed that If
she did not die of sickness she would contrive
to poison herself. Two, or three attempts
were made by her, and once she swallowed
strychnine, but the prompt action of the jail
physician saved her life. Her latest oppor
tunity was on Wednesday night. A female
vagrant succeeded in smuggling a quantity of
morphine into the condemned woman's cell.
It was _discovered, however, before she had
taken it. It was a theory of many that the
commission of such orient must be the result
of a monomania. Te test this , a medical com
mission, consisting of Thietere• Reed, King
and Corwin, was appointed •te enemies her

HOW D 114001! WHITE COSILTBD TRI WIDOW
—The Deacon's wagon stopped one morning
before Widow Jones' door, and he gave the
usual country sign, that be wanted somebody
in the house, by dropping the reins and sit
'ling double with hit elbows on his knees.
Out .ttipped the Widow, lively as a cricket,
'with a tremendous black libbon on he: snow
white cap. "Good morning " was. said on
both aides, and the widow waited for what
was is be further said
" Well, Ma'am Jones, perhaps you dos%
want to sell one of your cows, now, ter noth
ing, any way, doyou'!"
" Well, there, Mister Smith, you couldn't
have !poke, my mind better. A poor lone
Woman like me does not knew what to do
With se many creturs, and I should be glad to
trade if we can fix a."
, So they adjourned to the meadow. Deacon
White looked at Roan—thin at the widow—at
Brindle—then at the widow—at the Downing
pow 7 --then at the widow again—and to thro'
the whole forty. '
The same call was made every day for.s
Week, but the deacon could not decide which
row Le wanted. At length, on Saturday,
;when the widow Jones was in' hurry to get
through her baking for Sun lay, and had
peer so much to do in bee hous , , as all
farmers,' wives and widows have on Saturday,
she wu • little'impatient. Deacon White was
irresolute as ever.
" Thal -'ere Downing cow is a pretty fair
l eretur," said he, " but," —he stopped to
'glance at the widow'e lace, and then walked
around her—not the widow, but tke cow.
"The Downing cow I knew before the late .
Mr. Jones bought her." Here he pighed at
the allusion to the late Mr. Jones ; she sighed,
and both looked at each other. It was a
;highly interesting moment.
" Old Roan is a faithful old milch,. and so
'is Brindle—but I have known better. 7 d
long stare succeeded his speech—the pause
was getting awkward—and at last Mrs. Jones
"Lord! Mr. Mite, if I'm the cow'you
want, do say so! "
The intentions of the deacon and the widow
were published the next day.
