~~ my head. So I went to bed, and he went down stem; and after he wont down stairs the little girl came into ray room. I looked and I heard the door open, and I thought it was the boy come back again. Site went out, and the boy came back in about five minutes, and mid lie bad bcch delivering some books for Mary A rm Maguire. He asked me fur the liquor, which he put up in the bottle in the evening. I told him it was where Ito left it. So I said 'don't deliver the liquor to-night.' He said ant go ing there anyhow.' This was fin, lie had de livered the limits. promised her Mrs. Shaw) I would take it to her,' said lie. promised it to her last night when I wits on her lap:— Ile reached there about, eight o'clock, and she received hint and took him into John W. Car roll's room. She said she hail a young man and woman up stairs, and my boy stood in the front room until about five minutes past eight, when they went away. Then he and Mrs. Shaw had a drink together, so lie started and said he would go and see sheen l'ather was, and said, tI will be back again,' and at half past eight he reached where the boys were, and there lie re mained playing dominoes until a quarter to ten o'clock, and then he came beck to Maguire's, and stopped in the bar-room until 12 o'clock, and then told Maguire 'father is in bed.'_ So Maguire closed up at 12 o'clock. He then started down to Mrs. Shaw's and Mrs. Shill,' was crying, and told him she had liked to sot the house on fire, and Mrs. Lynch had come .down stairs and hallooed, and pulled her oft' the settee, and said, you are going to set the hens° on fire. Mrs. Lynch put the fire out.* This was the time the neighbors thought the murder was. committed. So my son and Mrs. Shaw went to work and finished the bottle. He then went for the money in the trunk. Mrs. Lynch heard him at the trunk, and followed hint down stairs. He then left and ran out and came home, and came up stairs to me, and told me what he had done, as above stated. He asked me for my pocket book. I said 'have you net one of your own?, He said 'mimic is too large.' I asked him what he wanted with it, and said that he could find it in my pantaloons' pocket. There was nothing said about the money then. The boy left the room, and I did not set , 111 M of know where he was until morning. When I got cp in the morning, there where three new shirts on the table. He told me to put on a new shirt, Tor the shirt is broke and bloody from the fight. with Carroll.' I said, 'no my shirts arc clean enough;' but he insisted on it, and I took off my two shirts and folded them up, and put them under the table. In the morning i was called about 7 o'clock, to break fast. I then asked my boy, 'Where did you get those shirts'?' lie said he got the money that was in that trunk. I asked him how much? He said he did not know. I told him I would be suspected. 'No,' says he can prove you was in your bed." The boy was very uneasy, so after breakfast I went into the bar-room, mid played dominoes with Tom Maguire. My son went out; I did not know where lie went. It was raining hard. Some time after lie came back front the rain.— John Maguire mid to him, 'this is a bad day to be out. He seemed to be uneasy, and in about half an hour the officers came and asked fur a man by the name of Spring. I said, am the man." They arrested me, and, I asked the officers what I was taken for. They then informed me that it was for the murderer Mrs. Shaw and Mrs. Lynch. Although the Voy brought home the money, he never told me that he murdered the women, neither do 1 believe he had any hand in it, nor do I believe he knew anything about the mur der, for if he had, he would have told me that night. These are my dying words. About Christmas time I frequently went to Mrs. Shaw, and was on very intimate term, with her. In regard to the murder of Mr. Rink, I have no knowledge whatever; I never saw him., nor was I ever in his store, neither do I know where his store was, except that I heard where it was through the papers. In regard to the murder of Mr. Hope, I never knew the man or heard of him until after I was in prison. This is all I have to any. The Execution. In order to lay all the particulars of the exe cution before our readers, we proceeded to the prison early yesterday morning. It was about half past eight when we reached there, and we finind few persons either within or without the prison. None of the public functionaries had yet arrived. The few minutes we had to spare were devoted to the inspection of the interior of the prison, which we found to exhibit its usual cleanliness and good order. The keep ers were all at their posts, and nothing except a few more than the number of visitors usually found within, indicated that any thing unusual was to he enacted, We found the prison in spectors, Messrs. Crowell and Fletcher, attend ing to their duties, and learned that they had been there from six o'clock, A: M. We learned from these gentlemen that the condemned had slept well during the night. The Rev. Mr. Street and Rev. Win. Alexander having divided the night with him.' To Mr. Crowell, who visited him at a very early hour in the morning, Ile said that he felt very comfortable and willing to die—that he should go to the gallows Wee a man. - At the same time he shed tears copi ously, showing that he was fully sensible of his situation. The Rev. Messrs. Street and Kensil remained in his cell till midnight, duringwhich time Arthur was asked how he felt.. He an swered "I never felt better in my life; I never murdered no person and I expect to die a Christian; I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, that he alone can forgive my sins, and wash my soul in His blood—and that He alone can save me, and I never did believe any thing else. I also believe in the Resurrection of the body, and in a judgement to come, and Life everlast ing after death, and that every man must give an account of, every 'action of his life, whether it be good or evil, and in a place of happiness for the good, and a place of misery for the wick ed." To a question put to him with the open Bi ble in his hand, "Do you feel that elod, for Christ's sake, accepts you and forgives you?— lie answered, "I trust ho does, and death does not trouble me." To a question put to him.— "Do you, in the fount' God, before whom you will upper in afew hours; forgive everyone who has in any way injured you?" Ho answered, "I do, and I trust He will forgive me, as I forgive them." In the course of the conversation the prison er asked Mr. Street if he believed hint guilty, and he answered that he did, whereupon Spring said that he could not toll ell the murders he knew without implicating his son. Afterwards he denied all knowledge of the murders.— Spring, among other things, said that ho did not intend to die as soon as was thought—that lie intended to eat a good dinner before he left. This was said inn jocular manner altogether unsuited to the solemnity of the scene. He then related an anecdote of two men in the old country who had made a wager no to their swimming powers. When they met, one had a loaf of bread under his arm, the other a wallet on his back. The one with the wallet asked the other what he was doing with a loaf of bread. He replied that he expected to be gone for several hours, and that he had provided a meal; the one with a wallet was asked what he was doing with it, to which he replidd that lie expected to be gone for a week and had made ample provision. Spring regarded this as a good joke, and said that as ho was going on a long Journey ho would go well provided. At about 9 o'clock, Marshal Keyser arrived with a large force, and a portion of his mon were stationed at the north avenue to prevent those not duly authorized from passing around to the space where the gallows was erected.— Also, U. S. Marshal Wynkoop and Deputies, His Honor the Mayor of the city several of the city and county magistrates, and represen tatives of the municipal corporations. Tho weather could not have been inure pleasant, except that the sun became a little warm before mid-day. The Sheriff arrived between nine and ten o'clock, accompanied by his Deputies, and his arrival as is usual, created some excitement. Win. B. Reed, Elsq., the District Attorney, reached the prison at an early hour, bringing letter from Governor Bigler : in an,wcr to one sent him, to know if there was any hope of par don or respite, and the answer was decidedly in the negative. The criminal maintained his emnposure during the reading of the letter, and at the close, protested his innocence in the strongest terms. Front ten to cloven o'clock, the number within the prison walls was increased to not less than five hundred persons—some estima ted the number at Considerable more. After half-past ten, it having been whispered that the execution would take place alma eleven,the ex. eitement within increased, bet all was order and (piety few talking above the ordinary tone At a few minutes of eleven the Sheriff's princi pal deputies commenced to arrange the pro cession. • The Sheriff at this Ihid time was with the prisoner, together with the Clergyman in at tendanee, as follows:—Pov. John Street, Rev- R. T. Kermit, Rev. William Alexander, and Rev. Mr. Allen. Then religious exercises were gone through with, appropriate team occasion; in whch Spring joined. At precisely .11 o'clock, all things being in readiness, the condemned was brought from his cell in company with the clergymen aforemen tioned, the Sheriff, Mr. Freed the Keeper of the Prison, the executioner, and the Marshal of Police. The Condemned. Arthur Spring, the condemned was dressed in a straw lint, (tinder which was the cap to shroud his face,) dark bang-up coat, dark vest, and gray pants. Hi, arms were pinioned be hind him, and he walked, with a firm step, be tween the clergymen. On the wato the gallows, the clergymen song a hymn, but the prisoner made no effort to join in. • The Executioner. The jaek•ketch on this oceason was a negro, as we were informed, who wore a grotesque mask, representing a blooming youth. He was dressed in the prison garb, had his hands gloved, and wore a cap much like that of Spring. PrOCORSIOII to the (Mims% Mr. Anthony Fred took the right of the pro cession to the gallows. He was followed by the executioner. Next the prisoner, with tbeOler gymen am! Sheriff. Then followed the Mar shal and police board, wearing, their badges. Next the Sheriff's Jury and Special Deputies. Then came the reporters of the press, and after these the citizens who were invited to witness the execution. Ott the way to the gallows there was consid erable confusion and disorder atom, those who were placed so as to fall in at the close of the procession, but who wanted to break the line, and be among the first on the hanging ground. The Marshal's Police finally restored order, but not without much effort. 77ie The prisoner was the first to ascend the scaf- fold, followed by the clergymen, the Sheriff and Marshal of Police. The hangman did not go up until after religious exercises were over. The Sheriff's Jury, the Police Board, the Reporters, and various functionaries, were ran ged in a circle round the gallows. The con demned bore himself with a good deal of cool ness. The parties being all arranged on the scaffold, the proceedings were as Mows: Rev. John Street said: Spring, you have been convicted of the murder of Mrs. Shaw and Mrs. Lynch. The execution of that sentence is now to take place. I not ceased to warn you of the necessity of repen tance, and your making your peace with God. Are you gullty or not guilty of that murder? Arthur Spring with much feeling, replied, No, sir 1 no, sir I . . Rev. Mr. Street, • (remming.)—it has also been alleged; and the Grand Jury have brought a truce bill against you in regard to the murder of Mr. Rink—Are you guilty or not guilty of that murder? Arthur Spring.—l never saw the man in my Roe. Mr. Street.—l have but one more gees. tion to ask you. Before God, who secs you, and in whose presence you are soon to stand— is your son, Arthur Spring Jr. : entirely clear of the murder of those women? Arthur Spring.—l believe he is, I believe that he had nothing more to do with it than I had. Her. Mr. Street.—May Co: have mercy on your soul. It is all T have to say. Mr. R. T. Kensil_rthose on the scaffold kneeling down,) prayed as follows: Almighty God, the Father of our spirits, the Redeemer of soul, whose eyes are now upon us, who knows the secrets of all our hearts, we would approach the mercy seat on this solemn occa sion through, the merits and righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ, and humbly beseech Thee to look now upon this condemned man, who is to pay the penalty by the fothiture of his life. We humbly beseech Thee, 0 Lord God, as Thou art acquainted with secrets of his heart and as Thou well knowest who was the murderer of those for whose death he is now to stiffer, if he is guilty. [The condemned here shook his head violently.l Rev. Mr. liensil (continued)—to move his heart. Do Thou, oh Lord, so move him that he may declare, before God, his Maker, wheth er he is the guilty man or not. And, oh Lord God, we humbly beseech Thee compassionate. ly to look uppn him in mercy; to forgive his sins, and receive him to Thyself. We would pray for our Heavenly Father to extend His mercy to that boy and those girls, his children! And, oh may the spiritof the Lord guide them, and may they find mercy among mankind, and may they find mercy in God! We pray Th, to take us all into Thy heavenly keeping; pre pare us for the events of Thy providence, re ceive this man, and, finally, all this multitude more, in Heaven, through JCS. Christ our Lord. Amen. Rev. Mr. Street.—He tolls us that his son is entirely innocent of the murder. Ho made that statement last night at midnight to me in Isis cell, and he now declares before this multi tude that the stain of blood is not upon the skirts of his boy. Arthur Spring—Gentlemen: I will go fur ther and say— . . Here he was drawn into conversation with those around him. Rev. Mr. Kensil then advanced to the front of the scaffold and said:—lle wishes to say, "Gentlemen, and I will declare it for him. Arthur Spring approached his side, and in a clear tone of voice, spoke to those before the gallows as follows:—"Gentlemen, I went to bed that night about seven o'clock, and never got out of my bed until I was called to my breakfast in the morning. I never knew any thing of the murder until the officers told me of it." After the religious exercises on the scaffold were over, the Rev. Mr. Alexander took a black , handkerchief from the prisoner's neck, and Jack Ketch being at hand, the straw hat was lifted off of Spring's head, and the white cap drawn over his face; the rope was then adjust ed, and the prisoner's hand was shaken by the clergymen, the Sheriff and the Marshal. The Sheriff was the last on the scaffold. Im mediately upon his descending the two props on the outer edge of the scaffold were removed, and the next moment, amid breathless silence, at precisely 17 minutes after 11 o'clock, the drop fell. The neck was broken by the fall, though the knot worked around to the back of the head. The felon, however, seemed to die easy. In about two micutes after the fall he gave several convulsive shakes and two or three twitches of the shoulders, and all appeared to be over. At precisely 17 minutes of 12 o'clock he WAS pronounced dead and cut down. The body was removed to ono of the rooms of the prison to await the order of his son. The crowd outside was quite large, and great efforts wore made to scale the wall, One-per son did get on the wall, and maintained his place to the end, The house tops and the trees is the neighborhood were all crowded.

Hobensack's Worm Syrup, An article founded upon Scientific Principies, compounded with purely vegetaldo substances, being perfectly wife when taken, and hen never been known to fail in curing the most obstinate case. Worms can newer exist when thin remedy is once used. from the fact that it only destroys them but removes all the slime and mucus which may remain. The Tape Worm. This worm is the most difficult one to destroy of all that inhabit the hnmen body. It grows to an almost indefinite length, and becoming so coiled and fastened in the intestines and stomach as to produce Fits, St. Vitus' Dance, tie., which, is the cause of many going to the grave, not be lieving that these complaints have their origin from the Tape Worm; consequently they do not use the proper medicines for their disease. To those who arc afflicted with this WO foe to health, I recommend the ti , e of my Worm Sy rup, and Liver Pills; the Syrup to be taken in dosas of two table-spoonstuls three times a day, then take from 5 to 8 of my Liver Pills, to dis loge and pass the worm. By strictly following these directions, the most obstinate cases of Tape Worm can be speedily cured. Bound or Stomach Worm, This worm is usually tbund in the small intes tines, and is the worm most common to children, yet is not entirely confined to them, as adults bare frequently been known to suffer with them. The symptoms most promineht while affected with this worm, are hardness and fullness of the belly slimy stools, looseness of the bowels, picking at the nose, a blueish streak under the eyes, &c.— If you, or any of your children have any of the above symptoms, Hobensnek's Worm Syrup can safely be depended upon—by using it you have a Imrtain, safe, and speedy cure; end if after using it according to the directions, the patient is not restored to health; and the worms thoroughly eradicated from the system, you can rest assured there is no remedy beyond the gmt , e, as for fail, there is no such word as fail with those who use my worn, Syrup. Ascarides, or Small Thread Worm. These worms, to which the hutnan system is liable, are the most troublesome of all others.— They are generally to he found in the reettun,and if allowed to remain, from the irritation they pro duce, lay the foundation for actions disorders, such as inhumation of the bonds, and other de rangements of the stomach. The best and safest medicine that can be used is Hobensack's Worm Syrup. Such is the astonishing power of my medicines over AFcaridos, that I defy any one to produce a ease where my worm Syrup and Liver Pills are recommended to be used they will not cure. All that is necessary h; to use the Syrup hi accordance wills directions on each bottle; and in case a gentle purgative is required in order to allay the irritation they produce, the Liver Pills by their sympathising action and healthy opera tion upon the bowels, is the most pleasant medi cine that can be taken. HobensaelVs Liver rills. No part of the system is more liable to disease than the Liver, it being supplied with numerous hlood-vessels and nerves, and if diseased, the blood of course flowing through nil parts of the body produces Liver Complaints, Jaundice. Bil lions Affections; Dyspepsia, &c., &c. Liver Complaint.

This disease can be cured by the use of Ilobensaeles Lire• rills, as they act directly upon the seat of the disease, and then operating, upon the bowels they expel all the corrupt and vitiated nuttier frotn the system. Dyspepsia. Tho symptoms of Dyspepsia, and its carious diseases are dizziness in the head, heartburn, op pression after eating meals, sourness arising from the stomach, &c., and sometimes general languor of the whole body, from this it will he seen that the disease owes its origin to a disorganized state of the Liver and Stomach. Ilobensack's Liver Pills is the very tnedteine to chisel a per manent and lasting cure, as they act by changing the certain morbid actions of the system into a healthy action, and rendering the blood pure and healthy.
