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
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
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.—
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
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

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.
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
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.
Is attended with chills, succeeded by fever, se
vere pains in the region of the Liver, vomiting,
bitter tastes, yellow furred tongue, pulse, full nod
bounding, the pain in the side is increased by
pressure, should the Jell lobe he aftiacted, the pain
is generally in the left shoulder, with a short, dry
cough, the shin becoming of a sallow appearance,
and the stools clay colored. 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.
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
To Females.
You will find these Pills an invaluable medi
cine in many complaints to which you are subject.
In obstructions either total or partial, they hove
been found ofinestimahle benefit in restoring and
purifying the blood and other fluids so as to cure,
all complaints which may arise from fumale irreg
ularities, as headache, dimness of sight, pain in
the side, hock, &o. These Pills are the only safe
and effectual remedy to cure the following com
platnts, Gout, Nervousness, Melancholy, Sick
Headache, Giddiness, Rheumatism, distressing
Dreams, Dimness of Sight, or in fact any of the
diseases that arise front the affections of the Liver,
impurity of the blood, or Constipation of the
Medical Evidence.

"Thou sands upon thousands ofour youth, by evil

thousands, who are raising; families hove been
