It is the remark of Bulwer, we think, that nt
certain periods, particular crimes "become e;. i-
Ueuiic, or iotiow eacu oiuer m suon muiu suca-
Biua, that oue would seem t j he suested or iu
duced by tho horrors of tht which preceded it
And thus tho question Las been stin ted by some,
poi.ey 01 fcii tne uetai.s.
This latter view, however, is not bated on a cor- j
ect consideration of the subject, for with many,
very fact that the commission of crime wis ht '
take places and yet the offeuder escape the puu
Lshment of exposure and the indignation of the
community, would form a powerful inducement
to plunge the dagger, to administer the poison,
or to wield the bludgeon. Tbe public, more
over, would never be satisfied by the suppres
sion of all the particulars, while a thousand
fnise stories would be circulated fron lip to lip,
and many scenes of violence be produced, which
are now avoided.
The tragedies that have so recently, taken
place would seem, in some degree, to give color
ing and plausibility to the theory of the great
novelist. The excitement produced by oue crime
has scarcely subsided, before the ears of the
community have been startled and pained by tne
details of another. In Philadelphia, as is well
known, we have had four appalling murders in ,
the course of a few months. That of tbe store-!
keeper Kink, that of the stevedore Sooban, and
those of the two sisters, Mrs. Shaw and Mrs.
Lynch. And these have just been followed up
by two awful tragedies in New York. In one
case, a wretched husband rained Thomas Neary, j
animated by the spirit of a fiend, seized a
let, and in the presence of his children, neat his
wife with such cruel feiocity that she died in
the course of a few minutes. The offender has
been arrested, and in this case, as iu that of
Arthur Spring, his own son is the principal and
fatal witness against him.
In the other case, a Frenchman named Mel
ville, called on Thursday morning, at half-past
9 o'clock, at the store of a gentleman named De
Corn, one of a firm of butter-packers, whose es
tablishment is in Greenwich street, and inquir
ed for Mr. D., who happened to be absent. He
vraa told of the fact on appearing at the s1 ore,
also that Melville had said that he would call
again. De Corn immediately went into the yard,
and as is supposed, to prepare his pistol. About
half-past ten o'clock, Melville called again, and
presented a paper of some kind to De Corn.
The latter looked at the paper, and then delib
erately drew a pistol; and as he was presenting
it, Melville exclaimed, Oh Mr. De Corn, what
are you going to do." He had but finished this
entence when he was shot through the breast
with a bullet, and died almost instantly. De
Corn immediately after committing the deed
made his escape, but was subsequently arrest
ed. The following is a more particular account
of the affair :
From the New York Courier, of April 1.
Another Mlkdeu Deliberate Affair. A
shocking and deliberate murder was committed
yesterday morning shortly after ten o'clock, in
the provision store of Messrs. Giraud & Co.,
Nos. 208 and 210 Greenwich street, the particu
lars of which are as follows: Mr. Eugene Mel
ville, a Frenchman, called at the above store
Ja the morning about 9 o'clock, and inquired for
Mr. Louis De Corn, one of the firm, and Mr. De
Cora being theu temporarily absent, he left,
eaying that he would return shortly. A few
minutes after ten o'clock he appeared at the
store, and Mr. De Corn wa3 then within. Mel
ville. UDon entering, handed Mr. D. a letter.
which the latter read and rerurneCTlo hlsvisitor,
saying "wait a little."
r A tZ3 r
De Corn then went immediately to the back
part of the store, and in a few minutes returned
from behind a screen with a loaded pistol, which
he presented at Mr. Melville. The latter, on
discovering the weapon, exclaimed, "Oh my
God, Mr. De Corn, what are you going to do,"
He had but finished this sentence, when De Corn
shot him through the breast with a bullet. Mel
ville fell upon tlie floor, and almost instantly ex
pired, lie did not speak alter the pistol was
tired. The assassin, immediately alter commit
ting the deed, tied I'roiu the premises. This ac
count of the occurrence was given by Louis
Steamer, a lad who was at the time iu the store,
and witnessed the tragedy. - The Fifth Ward
Police were at the scene of bloodshed a few mo
ments after the murder was perpetrated, and
took the above witness and another lad iu charge
and detained them for examin uion.
The body of Mr. Melville was conveyed to the
Filth Ward Station House, where a post mortem
examination was made by Dr. Finnell. The bal
let with which he was Shot was found near the
right shoulder-blade, it passed through the
region of the heart and other vital parts. It is
cot known to a certaiuty what prompted De
Corn to commit the deed. The latter is a French
man, and said to have been a physician. There
are sjine circumstances which would make the
fatal affair appear to have been the result ot
jealousy. Melville, it seems, was married about
six mouths ago to a young American lady oi
pood connections. She was in the habit of re-
. ceiviug a small income through her guardiaus,
and he received about fifty or sixty dollars from
bis friends iu France. They lived happily but
for a short period.
It is said that Melville was in the habit of dis
sippating, and tnis and other cause resulted in
a separation between him and his wife, it is
ulso stated that the deceased was jealous of his
wife, owing to an alleged improper intimacy
that existed between Mrs. Meljiile aud De Corn.
The latter heard that Melville intended to uttack
him iu consequence, about two weeks ago, and
armed himself with a pistol. The letter preseu-
. ted to De Corn at the fatal meeting yesterday
morning, was to the latter fioiu his mother, who
wrote that she had just sent his wife many
presents. The reason for his showing the letter
to De Corn is supposed to have been to inform
Jiiia of the good circumstances aud stand oi' his
relatives iu France, and the painful condition he
was placed in by being separated from his wife.
In the afternoon Mrs. Melville appeared at
the Station House in compain with some friends
and exhibited much grief. She became almost
frantic, and had td be secured in the parlor of
the Station House until those re atoning with
her had managed in some measure, to sooth her
affliction.- '
About four o'clock in the afternoon, Captaius
Carpenter aud Hutchings, after a long and tedi
. ous search for De Corn, found him secreted in
. Mrs. Melville's apartments in the Franklin
; Square Hotel, and took him into custody. Cor
, ner Hilton held an inquest on the body of tho
deceased in the afternoon, when the following
evidence was elicited. The prisoner was pres
eat during the investigation, and appeared very
, auch depressed. He seemed to regret the act
bitterly. j
Emma Eugenia Melville being sworn, said I
reside at Franklin Square Hotel ; I know the
prisoner Louis de Corn; I am the wi e of Eu
gene Melville; I sawim last on last Tuesday
week; it was at 50 Lispenard street; 1 was board
ing there at tbe time with him ; I left .that house
this day week. Mr. Melville was absent from
- the city at the time ; 1 think he was in Connec
ticut; he followed no business whatever; I saw
Mr; De Corn this morning about 'J o'clock; I
saw him again about half past 10 at the Frank
lin Square .Hotel ; he remained there for some
- time ;' he was in a great -state of agitation ; he
.' seemed very much troubled ; he told' me that
-he had shotmy husband, but did not know whe
ther he was dead or cot : he said he thought he
would cot have done it except it was to save his
own life ; Le said be was very surry, but did it

was a witness to our marriage.
Verdiet according! y. The
prisoner was lm-
mediately sent to prison.
In the foregoing case both parties were
Frenchmen, But the duty of the philanthropist
aud legislatoi, is to inquire as to the causes,
i direct and ludiiect, ot these deplorable doings,
ftIU thus, if possible to discover a remedy
su0;ec ;s 0lie of too serious a character to be
disposed of in a moment. Intemperance, ava-
I vice, idleness and vindictive passions are evi-

the leadinc springs and motives of
crime, ine
storekeeper Kink was no doubt
murdered for rnonev. So also Mrs. Shaw and
Mrs. Lvnch. I he stevedore boohan was mur
devvd apparently in a spirit of mere wilful reck
mal-lussIiess or wouton wickedness. Mrs. Nearv,
of New York, was murdered by a drunken hus
band, while the French cause was doubtless the
result ol a private quarrel. The chapter is a
bloody one, aud it is well calculated to induce
"Scse Dexin Married!" What a commo
tion the announcement will cause among the nu
merous admirers of the talented young lady, ev
erywhere! And what a sudden arrangement it
was all, no doubt, to get rid of the care of an
anxious step-father. The Buffalo Republic gives
the following romantic version of the marriage :
"Miss Susan Deuin, the handsome and clever
young actress, yesterday became Mrs. F. Wood
ward, having been married rather unexpectedly
It appears that Mr. W ., who is a gentleman of
Syracuse, in excellent business and affluent cir
cumstances, lias for a year or more been in love
with Miss Deuin. He has followed her from
place to place, has written her letter after letter,
but has never been able to make her acquaint
ance, and his letters were never received, it now
seems, by the young lady. On Saturday, it is
reported, Miss Denin had some disagreement
with her step-father, and guardian. Yesterday
morning the friendly relations between them
had not been resumed, which young XV. tried to
turn to his advantage. His lather, at his re
quest, called on Miss D.'s guardian, she having
finished her lth year, and proposed the mar
riage of his son and Miss D.; offering, it is said,
to give the guardian a large sum ($5,000 is na
med, j tor any prospective loss ne migut susiaiu.
This was refused young W.tben gave a domes
tic $50 to carry a note to Miss D. during her
guardian's temporary absence. The colored
gentleman proved a faithful Ganymede, and de
livered the missive. Miss D. sent for the wri
ter; she had never seen him he arrived at her
room door, where she met him, "Do you want
to marry me are vou in earnest?" was his sal
utation. "I do, and will," was the reply. "Send
for a ptiest," responded the girl. The liev. Mr.
Sheldon answered the summons; Mr. Warren
and his lady, and some other friends were pres
ent, and the ceremony was performed. The
party, consisting of the happy couple, the bister
Miss Kate Dennin, and the governess of the
young lady, left on the cars last evening for the
east. We learn that the new couple will again
make this city a visit in about two weeks. There
are divers rumors as to the conduct of her guar
dian, which we do not deem necessary to pub
lish, if true, and we know nothing of their truth
or falsity.
