THE BOSTON TRAGEDY.
Supposed Murder of Dr. Psirkman.
Arrest of Prof. Webster
The city papers mention that a great
sensation has been produced in Boston
by the supposed murder 'of a wealthy
citizen of that place, named Dr. Park
man. Several days ago he mysterious
ly disappeared, and no clue of him could
be obtained. On the 30th ult., howev
er, ns we learn by a telegraph despatch
in the North American, the mutilated
remains of a body supposed to be that
of Dr. Paricman were found under the
Boston Medical College, where he was
last seen' allie i end suspicion at once
settled on Dr. John Webster, one of the
'Professors of the institution, as the mur
derer ! Ho was immediately arrested
and lodged in jail. When arrested he
displayed great agitation. So far how
ever the evidence is only of a circum
stantial character. The excitement in the
city, growing out of his arrest, was so
great that the authorities found it neces
sary to order out the military to prevent
a popular outbreak.
Ihe Boston papers of Monday are
filled with the details of the investiga
tion into the circumstances attending
the supposed murder of Dr. George
Parkman, and which beveled to the ar
rest of Prof. Webster, of Harvard Uni
versity. It appears that in the early
part of the month of November, Dr.
Parkman called at Professor Webtiter's
lecture room, in the Medical College in
North Grove street, while the Profes
sor was engaged in delivering a lecture
before the students, and waited until the
lecture wns over, and the students had
all left. He then asked Professor Web
ster for the money due him, and after
some conversation, in which both par
ties were considerably excited, Profes
sor Webster desired him to wait until
the 23d of November, as all the tickets
for the lectures, engaged by the stu
dents, had not been paid for, but would
in all probability be by that time. Dr.
Parktnan, it is stated, left the building
doal excited. On Thursday af
ternoon November 22d, Dr. Parkman
called .at the residence of Professor
Webster, in Cambridge, who being ab
sent, he left word with his wife, that he
he wished to have her husband call
at his (Dr. Parkman's) house the next
morning.. On Friday morning, Novem
ber 23d, the day after, about 9 o'clock,
Professor Webster called at Dr. Park
man's house in Walnut street, the Dr.
being out, he left word for him that he
could pay him, if he would call at his
room at the College soon after 1 o'clock.
Dr. Parkman, Professor Webster states,
called at the Medical College about half
past one o'clock, and was paid by him
(Webster) $183,01, whichamoun't was
to take up two notes and cancel a mort
gage. Dr. Markman gave up the notes,
but had not the mortgage with him.—
He, however, said he would go and can
cel it. This transaction, Dr. Webster
says, took place at the counter in his
lecture room, and that Dr. Markman left
the room through the door near the main
entrance to the building.
Since half past one o'clock on Friday
the 23d, the titne he was seen by a num•
ber of people to enter the College, twill.
ing of a reliable nature has come to light
as to his whereabouts. He was seen to
enter the College, but no one has been
found who r ritt , him come out of it ; and
this fact produced an impression in the
minds of a number—more strongly in
that of Mr. Kingsley, Dr. Parkman's a-
ent—that he never did come out of it
The College is built upon walls which
rest upon piles, and the tide ebbs and
flows through apertures underneath the
basement floor, between the compart
ments formed y the walls. One of these
compartments forms what is termed the
vault underneath Professor Webster's
laboratory. There is a trap door to the
compartment next to that used by Prof:
Vt ebster, situated some forty feet from
the water closet. Littlefield descended
through this trap door on Friday, with a
crow-bar, and knocked an aperture in
the wall near the water closet, and dis
covered, about 4 o'clock that afternoon,
portions of a human body, which had
been washed by the sea': These por
tions were the pelvis, the right thigh,
and the right leg. Littlefield immedi
ately proceeded to Dr. Bigelow's office,
and acquainted him with the fact, as we
understand, in the must excited manner,
saying, have found it !' and repeating
these words so often that Dr. Bigelow
took hold of him and told hiNa to be qui
et—that he acted like a crazy man.
Dr. Bigelow went to the City Mar
shal's office that afternoon, and informed
Mr. Tukey of the discovery which had
been made, who immediately, with some
officers, proceeded to the college and
found it was so. Mr. Tukey then gave
directions for the arrest of Professor
Webster,and officers Clapp, Stark weath
er, and Spurr, proceeded to his residence
r • °our,
in Cambridge in a carriage for that pur
pti#e. They arrived at the house about
nine o'clock, just as Dr. Webster was
showing a visiter out. The officers met
him at the gate and, told him that the
college officers were met in consultation
on the subject of Dr. Parkmau's disap
pearance, and had sent for him to attend
it. He made no objection, and while on
the way to Boston he conversed cheer
fully and freely, and, referring to Dr.
Parkmau's having been at the college,
said that he stopped at the doctor's house
on Friday morning, and requested him
to elll at the college for his money be
tween I and 2 o'clock that day. The
carriage was halted at the jail, and the
party went into the office, and then, for
the first time, Dr. Webster began to pre
ceive that there was something strange
in the proceedings of the officers, •and
asked what they had come to the jail for
when their destination was the college
in Grove street, remarking, also that
they had come out of the way. Clapp
then said—" Dr. Webster, it is no use to
disguise our purpose any further. You
are under arrest, on suspicion that you
know something about the death of Dr.
Parkman, parts of whose body have been
found under your laboratory. We shall
look no more for the body." Upon
hearing this accusation, Dr. Webster
staggered backwards, as if struck to
the heart, and uttered various exclama
tions about his family and children and
also saying—" The villain I I am ruin
ed;" or, "The villain ! He has ruined
me." All who were present agree that
he did not say that he wag "betrayed."
One of the officers thinks, from some
broken sentences that he caught, that
the prisoner said something about some
one having placed the limbs where they
where found, for the purpose of obtain.
ing the reward, and that the discovery
of them there would involve the prison.
His excitement was intense, and he
exhibited symptoms of convulsions.—
Water was handed to him, but he could
not reach it to his mouth, nor could he
get any down, when the glass was held
to his lips. When asked it he was wil
ling to go to, the medical buildings with
them and see what they had found there
lie expressed his perfect willingness to
do so; but he was so weak and over
powered by his emotions, that he was
unable to get up and walk, and had to'
be taken to the carriage by the officers
of the jail: From the jail he was car
ried to the medical buildings.
Arrived there and in his own room,
the portions of the body that had been
discovered were shown to him. On see
ing them, he instantly went into the
most violent convulsions, and cried for
water. Water was handed him, and at
the first sight of it, he. repulsed those,
who offered it with as much violence as,
would a person writhing in the deepest I ,
agonies of hydrophobia. He seemed to
be in a perfect tempest of internal tor
ture. The sight of the water crazed
him! He appeared wild, ghastly, filled
with fear ! He fairly writhed with tor
ment! The scene was truly a terrific
one to those who were compelled to be
hold it, and probably will never pass
out of their memory. It was already
eleven o'clock at night, and a supposed
murderer had grown frantic on their
showing him the mutilated corpse of
his unhappy victim! It was a sight to
curdle the coldest blood, and fill the
stoutest man with terror ! Tragedies,
with scenes like this in them are often
played, but rarely enacted ! _
. In this state of convulsions and fren
zy he continued for some time, and noth
ing could be drawn from him. He was
carried back by the officers to the jail
and their confined.
After he returned to the jail the pris
oner became somewhat more calm. Ile
stated that no one had access to his up.
artments in the College but himself, and
could not have such access but with his
keys. He not only had the keys of
those nopartments in his possession, but
also the key, a large one of the water
closete under which the remains were
found. This closet was within the la•
boratory, and not accessible from with
out that appartment ; and the door was
locked when the limbs were found below.
Saturday morning brought with it
still further discoveries. Officer Rice,
in arranging things in the laboratory,
found, in a recess formed by the brick
work of the furnace and chimney, a tea
chest, apparently filled with specimens
of minerals, but emitting a strange odor.
Re at once upset the chest, and found in
the bottom, embedded in hemlock bark,
the left thigh and half roasted trunk of
the body. The skin had been wholly
burned or stripped off from the trunk.—
The thigh was only stained with the
bark. All the parts found are such in
size that they may very well have be
longed to Dr. P.'s body. The missing
portions, and supposed to have been
burned up, are the head, contents of-the
VOL, XI V, NO, 48
body, left leg and foot, arms and hands,
and right foot.
Among the secondary facts, it may be
stated that four bloody- toe'ete Were
found in the vault, a very large Clasp
knife, with hunting figures on the blade,
was found with the trunk in the tea
chest ; some grapples, made of cod hooks
with lines and lead sinker attached,
were found in Dr. Webster's apparatus
room. This room is in the rear of tha
lecture room, and connected with it by
a door. On the inner side of the appa
ratus room is a large closet. Near the
door of this closet, on the floor, com
mence scattered marks of blood, which
extend the whole length of the apparatus
room, and appear on nearly every step
of the stairs leading from the room down
j into the laboratory. Dr. Wcbster's offl-
J elal duties as a professor required of
him no handling of bodies, nor was It
'allowable to have subjects in that part
of the building. On Sunday a pair of
trousers, marked with Dr. Webster's
name, and with marks of blood upon
them, were found in the large closet ;
also, under a settee in the room, a pair
of slippers, mat ked with spots of blood ;
also, a small saw, with a blood stain.
On Saturday afternoon, Col. Pratt,
Coroner, summoned a jury of inquest,
and at 4 o'clock they proceeded to the
college, examined the remains as they
were laid out on a board, and the con
tents of the furnace, and then passed
them into the hands of Drs. Winslow,
Lewis, Martin Gay, and J. B. S. Thatch
er, for such further examinations as can
be made of them.
The doctors mentioned entered nun
the investigation on Sunday, and found
fragments of calcined bones from each
of the missing pasts of the body. There
was something like the appearance of a
wide stab on the left side of the trunk,
but it was not made absolutely clear
whether she incision was made before or
Dr. Parkman was very wealthy, and
had been for many years largely en.
gaged in real estate transactions, and
in loaning money on mnri u s a ., 1-ht
occupied a high position, and by mar
' riage is connected with the first families
of Boston. He is a brother to the Rev.
Francis Parkman. One of his sisters
married the late Edward Tuckerman,
gs q ., and another, his brother Joseph
Tuckerman, the distinguished divine;
it third sister is the wife of Robert G.
Shaw, Esq., the eminent merchant.—
Dr. Parkman lost his wife several years
since. He has two children—a son and
daughter, and has left a large circle of
highly respectable relatives and friends
to mourn his melancholy death. Dr.
Webster has been more successful in
acquiring fame us a scientific man, than
in making money, and was in debt to
Dr. Parkman. Out of this relation
sprung disputes between them.
Dr. — Webster has been, for upwards
of twenty years, Professor of Chemistry
at Cambridge. He has a wide circle of
acquaintance, and has maintained
throughout life an unblemished reputa
tion. He is about 50 years of age, and
has a wife and four children. He has
paid a strict attention to the duties of
his profession, and his conduct has been
marked by uniform sobriety and stead
iness. His disposition was frank and
open, his manners lively and social; he
was esteemed by all who knew him as a
good citizen, and a peaceful neighbor,
and a kind an affectionate husband and
father. In every moral and intellectual
characteristic, he might be regarded as
one who was placed beyond the suspicion of a
tendency to the commission of crime.
'rho excitement created on Saturday morning
did not last over night. The disclosures at the
College formed the general subject of converse
' tion yesterday, but there was not at any time—
to our knowledge—either on Saturday, or yes
terday, any indication of riot displayed. rho
largest collection of people at the College, at
any one time, did not exceed 150 persons, and
ninny of the visiters were most respectable cit
izens. The military received orders at an early
hour on Saturday, to be in readiness in their ar
mories. This order was not confined to the
Boston companies alone: Two companies of
Infantry at Roxbury, received a similar order,
and were " up in arms" all Saturday night.
We heard from Leverett street jail last even
ing. Dr. Webster had become more calm, but
