REVIEW OF THE SICKLES' CASE.
On the afternoon of Sabbath, the 27th of
February, Washington City was thrown
into the wildest excitement by the recur
rence of an event which will fill many a
heart with sadness for untold years. We
refer to the killing of Philip Barton Key
by Daniel E. Sickles. The social and po
litical positions of the parties, the high re
spectability of their connections, and num
berless other circumstances, combined to
invest this tragedy with an interest and so
lemnity which rarely, if ever, attaches to
any human event. Sickles is the represen
tative in Congress of the 3d district of New
York city—one of the wealthiest and most
intelligent of the nation ; while Key was
the District Attorney of the District of Co
lumbia. Both gentlemen were the inti.
mate personal and political friends of the
President, the latter holding his office by
the President. Mrs. Sickles, tne woman
that has so unfortanately : and yet so shame
fully figured in this tragic scene, is of Ital:
ian origin, her father, Bagioli, being an
Italian music teacher•in New York. She
is but twenty-two years of age, and is rep
resented as charmingly attractive, ading to
the soft, winning beauty of her person, the
accomplishments of the most fushionnble
education. It cannot be thought strange
that a person so young as she, possessing
the ardent temperament and passion, ever
incidental to the daughters of ' , sweet sun-
ny Italy," and plunged into the whirlpool
of Washington society, where "easy vir.
tue" rules and revels, should on quickly
rush to ruin and disgrace.
It appears that the intimacy of Key and
Mrs. Sickles commenced in the spring of •
'6B. Key wishing to be rc-appointed Dis
trict Attorney, and knowing Sickles ha d
great influence with the President. having
been his private secretary while Minister
to England, by acts of attention and kind
ness, gained his friendship, support, and
even confidence; and by degrees, was ad
mitted into Sickles' homy—first, as a visi.
tor, next as a friend, and then, as an inti
mate companion. Skilled in all the wiles
of the seducer, he grossly and infamonsly
violated and abused the hospitality of his
friend, and, in his absence, invaded the
sanctity of the marriage bed, robbed his
wife of her virtue, and made her the vic
tim of as black, damning ingratitude as the
annals of crime afford. His intimacy with
Mrs. Sickles was continued through '5B,
growing more criminal and guilty as op• ',
portunities would permit. Emboldened by
his success and the facility with which lie
had thus far in his wickedness, escaped its
tection, he rented a house for to other pur
pose than to carry on this illicit intercourse.
What a spectacle ! The wife and mother

gladly would she have retraced her course,
and mourned with an everlasting sorrow,
the awful wickedness of her life. So fre

the suspicions of the residents of that part
of the city, were excited, and by close no•
lice, they discovered that the woman was

himself. Flu engaged a friend to test the
truth of these awful suspicions, when alas!
they proved but too well founded. Here
was a moment terrible in the history of that
household. Whore before, all had been
domestic bliss, all now became heart-rend
ing agony. He immediately accused his
wife of betraying his confidence and dis
honoring his home, and blighting his hopes
and his ambition. After a moment's pro.
teatation of innocence, she confessed her
guilt and begged for forgiveness. At that
moment, earth to Sickles must have seem
ed the awfulest hell, and the glorious uni
verse of God. one unredeemed chaotic
Scarce had the gush of frenzy, excited
by the discovery of his wife's seduction
and his own dishonor, subsided, till the au

his house, waving his handkerchief as a
signal to Mrs. Sickles to leave the protec•
lion which her own home afforded, and in
the sweet sunlight of that Sabbath after
noon, to follow him once again to their den
of infamy. The addition of the deepest
insult to the deepest injury, was too much
for the outraged husband to endure, and
7ildly seizing his pistole, he rushed to the
street, and meeting•his wife's seducer, he
cried, "Villain, you have dishonored my '
bed ! Prepare to die !" and with three
successive balls, shot him down as he wood
