Picture of a Fashionable Young Lady.
We never like to say or do an unkind thing to
the ladies, but it happens that if any of our rea
ders should see themselves in the mirror we
place befora them, we can only hope that they
will strive to change the original before they
uke another look at themselves. In the city
ve have plenty of such ladies, but in the coun
try they are seldom met with :
She sits in the lighted parlor.
And awaits for the tardy beaux ;
She plays with her little fingers.
And trots with her little toes,
K She calls for the Spanish poodle,
8he calls for the China fan,
ab kisses the long eared pappy:
And wishes it was a man.
Her mother stays In the kitchen.
Dressed in her coarse attire;
She's freezing over the ices,
And roasting over the fire

Some delicate kind of a treat.
Of creams and various jellies.

Sentence of Death on Arthur Spring His Gen
eral Appearance, Speech, &o.
On Saturday morning a few minutes before 9
o'clock, Arthur Spring was brought up to Court
from prison, to receive sentence of death. He
was ushered into the . room through a large
crowd, who remained quiet as he passed. When
the doors were opened, the rush was tremen
dous, and there was avast deal of elbowing de
spite the efforts of the officers to preserve order.
In a few seconds every nook and corner of the
Court room was closely packed by a curious
crowd, who were anxious to witness another
public act of the dreadful drama.
By the time the Judges had arrived and taken
their seats, every inch of standing; room, within
and without the bar, and inside the railing, was
closely packed by the eager multitude. The
wretched prisoner, although the centre of the
general gaze, sat unmoved in the dock, and look
ed upon the immense crowd ..with a real or as
sumed indifference. Spring looked well, and
his face bore no trace of anxiety. Judge Doran,
the counsel for the prisoner, stood near the
j dock, with his arm resting upon it. As soon as
silence coulJ be obtained, Mr. Reed, the District
Attorney, arose and addressed the Court.
THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY'S SPEECH.
May it please your Honors The prisoner at
the bar, Arthur Spring, on the 21st of March,
beiog arraigned, pleaded not guilty to a bill of
! indictment found by the Grand Jury charging
J him with the murder of Ellen Lynch. On the
2th of March, after a patient trials he was
f ound guilty of murder in the first decree. For
sufficient reasons, to which I need not allude, a
second trial was ordered on the application of
the prisoner. Ou the 2Sth of March that second
trial began, terminating in a verdict by another
jury of guilty of murder of the first degree. No
part of my duty remains to be discharged but
to move your Honors for judgment on that ver
dict. I, therefore move the Court for judgment
of death 'ipon Arthur Spring the elder, who
stands convicted of the murder of Ellen Lynch,
of the first degree.
After Mr. Keed had concluded, Mr. Doran
said : "As counsel for the prisoner in the dock,
bainff of oninion that he ha uil n. f.iir n-nd im.
partial trial, I know of no reason why judgment
t of the law should not be pronounced against
j The prisoner was then directed to staud up,
and Judge Kelley said, "Arthur Spring, have
I you anythiug to say why the judgment of the
law should not be pronounced upon you ?"
The prisoner replied, "I have, your Honors."
' Spring then commenced a statement which he
deigned as a justification of himself, but it fail
ed to create in the minds of any who heard him
a shadow of doubt of his guilt. The prisoner
spoke in a firm, strong voice, but with a hurried
accent. His face was flushed, although he did
not appear to be laboring under ati3' unusual ex
citemeut. His speech and his manner while de
livering it, impressed all who Leard it with the
conviction that he possessed a most cruel and
fiendish disposition, and that even after all hope
for his own life had fled, he was still seeking to
drag down into a felon's grave with him, the
reputation and even the life of his own offspring.
A death like silence prevailed during the time
the guilty man was speaking.
ARTHUR SPRING'S SPEECH.
Your Honors, I had no act nor part in the
murder of Mrs. Shaw and Mrs. Lynch. I am
willing to die for it at any moment ; but before
: 1 die, 1 call Uod to witness, that I had no part
: in the murder. If you want me to tell what I
1 know about it, I will. 1 here say that I had no
: hand in it. 1 know nothing about it. I never
had it in my thoughts. I am not afraid to die,
and show uiy death to any one. My son said he
would take the money from the trunk of Mrs.
Lynch, aud 1 told him that as I was known
i there I would be suspected of it. He told me
he took the money. He said he went down
there and took a bottle of brandy with
; him. He told me he had killed the women. He
had first struck Mrs. Lynch when she was in
j the back room. She got behind the settee, and
j he had to wait until she came out before he
; could finish her. He told me he had gone into
the frout room until she would come out. He
! said that after he left there he went up to Thir-
teenth street. He went home to Maguire's
about a quarter to ten o'clock, to play dominoes
I with the boys. After he came home to Maguire's
an j tucn
he waited till all were abed, first going up stairs
coming down again, when he went
back again to Carroll's. I say that I did not
commit the murders, but I am willing to die for
them. 1 am not afraid to show my face to any
man. I am not afraid to die not afraid to ap
pear before my God at any moment. My son
told me all about the murder of Mrs. Lynch and
Mrs. Sh aw. These are my dying words, and I
will say the same on the gallows. As for the
money, I did not know anything about it I did
not know the color of it, nor anything about it.
1 never told Byrne where the monejr was ; nor
did 1 say a word to. him about it. He came
down to prison, and brought mc three oranges.
He sat down and took out of his pocket a two
pound weight, which I had never seen before,
and put it into my lap. He said that he found
it in Maguire's yard, back of the house. I told
him my son had taken it out of Ragan's shop to
throw it at his cousin, for he was hghting with
him all the time, and I tookit from him and car
ried it up to Maguire's, and then I pitched it
away into the yard.
The first time I was at Maroney's store I got
a pound of grapes, and gave him a $5 note. He
said, take the grapes along and never mind the
money. I wanted to buy him out, and he ask
ed .$800 for his place. The next time I was
there was on Sunday night; and I got a pound
of grapes from Mrs. Maroney, and gave her a $1
gold piece. I took them home and gave them
to Ragan's children. It was my sou that told
me about the weight and the money also. WThen
I got up the next morning after the murder, I
found the two shirts on the table. My Bon told
me to put on one of the clean shirts ; I did so,
and rolled up the dirty ones, and put them un
der the table. One of them was the oiie I had
got bloody in the fight with Carrol. After break
fast my son went out, down to where he com
mitted the murder. - He came back and was at
home when the officers came. One of them
said where is Arthur Spring ? I said here am
I. We took some ale at the bar, and I rode off
with them in a cab. When we were near the
plucc where Mrs. Lynch and - Mrs. Shaw were

murdered, they told me of it. Before my God,
I am innocent of the murder, and will leave it
to the public, to my God, and everybody ; I am
willing to die fur it, and I know I must die.
These are my dying words. I was brought up
respectably, and have been a.n honest man all
my life. I have never been in liquor but twice
in ray life. I never had it in my mind to kill
anybody, nor did I ever commit murder. Now
jour Honors know all I have to say about it,
and I will die an innocent man, and am willing
to die. I call my God to witness my innocence.
It was impossible to obtain a verbatim report
of the speech of the wretched criminal; his rapid
enunciation and rambling style made it very
difficult to transcribe his words in the order in
which they fell from his lips. At times be hesi
tated, as if fearful of committing himself, and
at times seemed rather puzzled to keep up the
connection in the story he was inventing. This
confusion was very evident when he spoke of
taking off his own bloody shirt and substituting
a clean one by direction of his son. The culprit
seemed aware of the pitiful weakness of his story
.it this point. The statement on Saturday dif
fered materially in other respects from his former
stories. Until Saturday he has pretended that
he knew nothing whatever of the murder, until
told of it by the officers who arrested him. It
will be perceived that, in , the above speech, he
says his son told him of the murder the night it
was committed. There were many other dis
crepencies. After the prisoner had finished all he had to
say, Judge Kelley pronounced the sentence of
death in an appropriate, feeling and touching
Arthur Spring You have been convicted of
the highest crime known to the law of this Com
monwealth ! Murder, in the first degree. An
impartial jury have found that you did wilfully,
deliberately, and with premeditation, murder
Ellen Lj'nch, and with the correctness of that
finding the Court is satisfied. It, therefore,
only remains for us to pronomnce the dread
penalty which the law attaches to so atrocious
an act. That penalty is the forfeiture of your
life. Before pronouncing it, let me urge you to
appropriate the few brief days that remain to
you, to preparation for meeting Him whose
knowledge of your whole life is perfect, and
whose decrees, knowing not the limits of time,
are absolute and enduring as the heavens. His
ear is ever open to the cry of the penitent sin
ner ; and if you hope for mercy, look to Him as
its only source. From man you have nothing to
hope. No shadowy doubt of your guilt lingers
on the judicial or the popular mind. You have,
indeed, been twice tried and twice convicted.
For, though the first jury was, in part, irregu
larly constituted, it has not been alleged that it
heard auy but competent testimony, or that any
which was competent was withheld from it. It
heard fully and solely the legal evidence in the
case, and like the jury upou the verdict of which
we arc now about to enter judgment, it pronoun
ced you guilty. I need not recall to your mind
the details of the horrible tragedy, but as a rea
son why you are beyond the pale of hope save
from Him whose mercy is infinite, let me remind
you that it is no less clear that you murdered
Honora Shaw than that you took the life of Ellen j
Lynch ; nor is it les3 apparent that in your vain
effort to conceal your crime you attempted to
consume the two infant children of your victim.
Remember these things. Believe that your
days on earth must be few. Expect not re
prieve or pardon, but prepare to meet the ful
filment of the sentence of the law.
At this point the Judges rose, and the scene
was of the most solemn and impressive charac
ter. Judge Kelley continued :
"It is considered and adjudged by the Court
that the prisoner at the bar, Arthur Spring, be
taken from hence to the jail of the county of
Philadelphia, from whence he came, and from
thence to the place of execution, and that he be
there hauged by the neck until he is dead."
No perceptible emotion was visible upon the
prisoner's countenance. Not a quiver was seen
upon his lip, nor did a tear moisten his eye; he
geemed completely callous.
After the culprit had taken his seat he wiped
his eyes, and covered them with his hand for a
moment, and we thought we discovered a tear in
After the sentence was concluded, Judge Kel
ley directed that all in the Court-room should
retain their places until the prisoner was remo
ved. The order was strictly complied with, and
Spring wag passed out of the Court House
through a lane formed by the police, and the
van in which he was placed was driven up Ches
nat street and down Eighth, to the prison, with
out the slightest confusion or demonstration of
feeling being made by the assembled mass.
Before the prisoner left the court room, his
counsel, Mr. Doran, stepped up to him, and said
"Mr. Spring, there is now no longer any hope
for your life.' You should send for a priest,
and endeavor to make the proper preparation
for death and a future life."
Spring in the most resolute manner, turned
his face towards Mr. Doran, and looking him
full in the face, said, "I will not do it."
The court adjourned as soon as the case of
Spring was disposed of.
Sloop-of War Geemastows. On Friday last
Horn John I Hale, the father of the law abolish
ing flogging in the U. S. navy, by invitation of
Commander Nicholas, visited the U. S. sloop-of-war
Germantown. The crew was mustered and
the ex-Senator made a brief speech to them, com
plimenting them for the high character which
had been paid them by . their commander and
other officers. He was most heartily cheered
upon his arrival on board, at the close of his re
marks, and again on his departure. We lean
from Commander Nicholas that so far as his ship
is concerned the law works well ; that it is only
necessary to whip lazy seamen. The German
town had none.

Australia. The New York Herald contains
letters from an intelligent printer, who went to
Australia, in preference to California, to seek a

It is indeed the same story with which we are
all familiar as regards California a "streak of
luck" for a very few, which is always sure to be
heralded, but only hardships and disappoint

The New York Herald, of Tuesday, mentions
a shocking occurrence, which took plaee at the
Tombs, on Monday. Four persons, who had
been imprisoned there the night before, were
found dead in their cells. It appears that when
the keeper went to examine the cells, he found,
to his horror, that in one cell, three out of five
men, who had been imprisoned there for being
drunk, were quite dead, and a fourth rolling
about the floor in fits. In another, he found a
woman who had been imprisoned for the same
cause, also dead. An inquest on the body of
the woman will be held to-day. Coroner O'Don
nell held an inquest on the bodies of the men,
and the jury returned a verdict that the de

TnE SrccESsios. As it ia with some a matter
of conjecture as to the succession, in conse
quence of the death of the Vice President, we
remark that no provision is made, as none is ne
cessary in such an event. The duties of the
Vice President are limited to presiding over the
deliberations of the Senate. In his absence, or
upon his death, the President pro tern, of that
body, who is elected by the Senators, takes his
place. Mr. Atchison, of Missouri, is now Pres
ident pro tern, but does not assume the title of
the Vice President. In ease of the death of both
President and Vice President of the TJuited
States, the President of the Senate would be
come President of the United States, until an
election could be held, according to the provis
ions of the act of Congress of March 1, 1792.
The St. Lowis Xews of the Slst ult, states
that a large number of the late imigration of

to the United States, their transportation hither
having been obtained at a much lower rate than
it would otherwise have cost them by the ar
rangements made by the Mormon agent of im
migration. "A number who arrivedyesterday,

The New Yore Horse Market. The weekly
transactions of the New York horse market are
estimated by the New York Agricultor to am
ount to $00,000, or to upwards of $3,000,000
for the year. In this calculation the sales are
put at 300 horses per week, of the average val
ue of $200. The stables last week contained
950 horses, which is about the usual number.
It is said that horses are generally 10 per cent,
higher than they were last epring, and thirty
per cent, higher than three years ago. Very
few compared with the whole number, are sold
for less than $100.
Origix or the Word Ladt. In an old work,

"As I have studied more what appertains to
the ladies than gentlemen, I will satisfy you how
it came to pass that women of fortune were cal
led ladies, even before their husbands had any
title to convey that mark of distinction to them.
You must know, that heretofore it was the fash
ion for a lady of affluence, once a week or oftner
to distribute a certain quantity of bread to her
poor neighbors, with her own hands, and 6he
was called by them the Leff day, i. e. the bread
giver. Those two words were in time corrup
ted, and the meaning is now as little known as
