Execution of Thornton at St. Louis
Joseph W. Thornton, who expiated,
yesterday, the act of killing Joseph Char
less, was born on the 12th of August, 1821
in New York city. Ills pa rents were of
Irish birth. There were nine children,
only three of whom—John, Ann (not mar
ried,) and Eliza (married to a gentleman
named Clark).--are now living. The first
named resides in this city. 'the sisters
are in New York. Joseph was younger
than any of these three.
Yesterday being the day of the convict's
execution, he arose from his couch early,
and at once began his preparations to meet
the fate that awaited him. Ile seemee
more cheerful and better disposed than on
the previous evening, and announced that
he had given up every vestuge of his de
sire to live. He did not even !nquire if
anything had been heard from the Gov
ernor, e. n d inhe he was told that a despatch
had been received from Jefferson city, sta
ting that no executive interference with
the sentence need he expected, he mani
fested no astontahment, disappointment or
grief. He had been muck comforted and
sustained by a letter from one of his sisters
in New York, the perusal of which ap
peared to afford hi m infinite satisfaction
and delight. The prisoner was not inter

words with a cheerful expression of coan

any morbid curiosity of the crowd by ma
king any speech to them and had expressed
a desire that the execution should be made
'as brief as possible. In accordance with
this wish there were no rites iterformed
on the gallows, such as prayer or song,
but almost itnniediately after the Marshals
had nsended, Thornton arose to his Met,

priests sere engaged in silent prayer. At

against the posts supporting the scaffold,
and Thornton decended five feet with a
plunge that broke his neck. For nearly
three minutes his body underwent convul

himself up for a moment and then drop.—

that Cortinas, with eight hundred men

Harper's Ferry, .Icov. 18—The roes•
senger sent to Charleston last night was
detained outside of this town over two
hours and a half before the guard would
premit his departure, and he was also
tamed tilt 4 o'clock on his return.
A very large fire occurred during the
night, abrut four miles front Charlestown,
and the military were ordered out, expec•
ting an attack, but none was made.
The particulars of the fire could not be
ascertained,by the messenger, but they
will probably be ascertained on the arrival
here of the train from Winchester.
Richmond, Nov. 18—Six companies
of military are under arms ready to mart
for Charlestown at a moment's warning.
None having left yet.
Washington, Nos. 18—A company
comprising 87 infantry and riflemen left
Alexandria for Charlestown by the early
train, via the Relay House.

TUE CAUSE OF TEE LAST EXCITEMENT
—Harper's Ferry Nov.lB—The excite.
went last night was caused by the burn
ing of a wheat stack about three miles
from Charlestown. The military and the
whole populace were called to arms, and
the wildest terror prevailed among the
people, with the supposition that Col.
Davis had some informatoin of an approach
The panics among the people extended
to the Color.el, and a messenger was sent
by him to Harper's Ferry with:a despatch
to the Governor, calling for two conipa:
pies of cavalry.
This mo Oting the fire was found to be
the work of an unknown incendiary, but
no person could be found in the country
on whom suspicion could rest.
There are now a thousand men under
arms, and no enemy to be found to en.
The troops from Alexandria strived
at Charlestown this afternoon, and those
by the way of Winchester are expected
to morrow morning.
The Baltimore and Ohio Roilrond Coin
pony have sent Colonel Suutt with nil
armed poise to Harper's Ferry, to guard
t he bridge and property of the Company
at that point.
There is much dissatisfaction both here
and at Charlestown at the precipitate as
t ton Colonel Davis, in sending dispnches
for troops, instead of first sending nut a
posse to inquire into the cause of the fire.
The people think they have been made
to appear in a ridiculous light before the
country, and they are more than half right
on that point.
