Horrid Murder in Baltimore.
An intense excitement prevailed in Baltimore on , M
Friday the 29th ult., in the neighborhood of the On Thursday last by Benjamin F. Patton, Esq.,
ekthedml, in consequence a a young and respee- Mr.
table female having been brutally murdered in the town—all of Huntingdon county,
street on the previous evening. On enquiry we
learned that Miss Anna Maria Burke, aged about
twenty eight years, daughter of Mr. William B.
Burke, sexton of Emory Chapel, residing in the
family of Randall H. Mottle, Esq., whilst passing
along Mulberry street, directly opposite the Cathe
dral, had been knocked down, and had died from
the wounds she had received in the course of the
night. A jury was summoned over the body yes
terday morning, by A. Greenfield, coroner, in the
presence of his Honor the Mayor, who conducted
the investigation. On examination of the body, in
presence of the jury, a severe gash was visible be
hind the right ear fracturing the scull, and driving
a portion of the bone into the brain, which is sup
posed to have been the first blow received. Ano
ther gash, about three incites in length was visible
on her right eyebrow, which may have been inflic
ted by falling on the pavement, as well as a cut on
her upper lip. A severe blow hsd also been re
ceived on the rightjaw, breaking the limo
Knocking out one of her teeth, which was evidently
inflicted while she lay insensible on the pavement.
After examining the body, the jury retired into
another room, when a post mortem examination of
die body took place, conducted by Drs. Perkins,
Thomas Buckler, and Donovan. In the mean
while the following persons were examined in an
endeavor if possible, to ferret out the perpetrators
of this atrocious murder
Mrs. Ellen Fell, lives at Mrs. Evan Poultney's
opposite the cathedral—the deceased stopped at
Mrs. Ponltney's about 8 o'clock and stated that she
was going down to Mrs. Hahn's, on Lexington st.,
for her bonnet, and that on her return she would
call for one of Mrs. Moalo's children who had been
spending the day there. In twenty minutes after,
the servant man called her down stairs, and she
found the deceased in the entry with her head
dreadfully cut—she said she had been knocked down
on her way back from Mrs. Hahn's, at the corner of
the alley on Mulberry street, nearly in front of Mr
John P. Morris's door—she did not know who
struck her, or whether ho was black or white—
heard a man following her from the corner of
Charles street, and when she reached the corner of
the alley he knocked tier down without saying a
word—that she lay insensible for sonic time, and
when she canto to, she crawled to Mrs. Poulnoy's
door and rang the bell. Witness brought her a
basin of water, and endeavored to bind up her
wounds; whilst washing her mouth one of her jaw
teeth feel out—finding she could not stop the Wee
ding she took her around, with the assistance of a
servant man, to Mr. Moale s, and remained with her
until she died, at 4 in the morning. Witness had
known the deceased about a year, and has no idea
who committed the act, nor does site know whether
she had any enemies.
Mr. and Mrs. Moale stated to the jury that the
deceased had lived with them about three years,
and that she was loved and respected by all in the
house, from themselves down to the servants in the
kitchen. She was employed as a nurse and seam
stress—that a young man by the name of Johnson
bad paid his addresses to her about a year ago, but
not recently—supposed he ceased his attentions on
account of the circumstance of his having but one
hand and being unable to support a family.
Mr. George Kraft, a brother-in law of the decea.
sed, did not know that any one had been paying
attention to her but Mr. Johnston—never hoard her
say why ho had ceased visiting her—did not think
bile had any enemies.
Mr. Wesley Burke, brother of the deceased, has
no idea who could have committed the act—his sis
ter had no enemies to his knowledge—had not seen
her since last Tuesday week.
Mr. Johnson, the person alluded to as having
paid attentions to her was next called to testify.—
Ile stated that he had ceased visiting her from the
conviction that his circumstances would not admit
of marriage—he had still respected her and that
they were on good terms up to the time of tier
death. Whenever they met he always stopped and
spoke to her. There was no rival in the matter,
and has not heard of any one addressing her since.
The jury being under the impresion that the &-
maid had been mistaken by the assassin for some
one else, and from the fact of her Navin;
moments before cants from Mr. Poultney's house,
summoned Miss Lam Baconhart, a young girl living
in Mr. P's family. She stated that she had been
living in the family nearly a year, having previously I
came. from the country. She did not know of any
one that harbored ill-will—had never seen the de-
ceased but unce or twice.
The doctors having closed their post mortem ex
amination now reported to the jury that she had
died from a piece of her scull being driven into the
brain, caused by a blow on the back of the head.—
The jury therefore returned a verdict in accordance
with the facts—that she had come to her death by
blows inflicted by some person unknown to the

reward of $5OO for the arrest of the murderer, and

Dr. Moffat's Life Pills
The perfectly sale, unerring and suc
cessful treatment of almost every species
of disease by the use of Dr M OFFAT'S LIFE
M EDICINES, is 110 longer an experiment ;
as a reference to the experience of many
thiiiminil patients will satisfactorily prove.
During the present month alone, nearly
one hundrod cases have come to the
knowledge of Dr. MoPsaT, where the pas
'lent has to all appearance, efteeied a per•
mictent cure by the exclusive and judi
cious use of the Lite Medicines—some
.•ight iir ten of these had been considered
hopeless by their physicians. Such happy
results are a source of great pleasure to Dr.
M., and inspire him with a new confidence
to recommend the use of his medicines to
his fellow citizens.
The Lim MEDICINES are a purely
VEGETABLE preparation. They are mild
and pleasant in their operation, and at the
same time thorough—acting rapidly upon
the secretions of the system—carrying off
acrimonious humors, and assimilating
ted purifying the blood. For this reason,
ni aggravated cases of Dyspepsia, the Life
Medicines will give relief in a shorter
space of time than any other prescription.
In Fever and Ague, inflammatory Wien
oviiisin, Fevers of every oesciiption, Sick
Ileadaehes, Heartburn, Dizziness in the
Pains in the Chest, Flatulency, lm.
p:iired Appetite, and in every disease ari.
sino m from impurity at the blood, or a (limo
ordered state of the stomach, the use of
these medicines has always proved to be
oeyond doubt, greatly superior to any
other mode of treatment.
All that Dr. Moffat asks of his patients
is to be particular in taking them accot
ding to the directions. It is not by a
newspaper notice, or by any thing that he
may say in their favor, that he hopes to
. 4 ain credit. It is alone by the result of .
littr trial. Is the reader an invalid, and
does he wish to know whether the Lite
M edic i nes will suit his own case ? Ilse,
let hum call at the office of the agent, and
procure a copy of the Good Samaritan,
published gratuitously. He will there
