The case of Ruloff, who died last week on
the scaffold, is one of the most remarkable in
criminal records, The history of his wicked
ness, so far as it is known, is in itself most
extraordinary. Some twenty-Ave years ago
this man was indicted for the murder of his
young wile and infant child. The drown
etantial evidence adduced in the trial created
a universal conviction of his guilt; but as no
lifeless bodies could be found this-moral con
viction could not issue in a legal verdict.—
Subsequently Ruloff was tried a second time
on the same indictment, and on the ground
of new evidence he was pronounced guiltyand
sentenced to death. While laying in the
jail ewating execution he succeeded in mar-.
reipting young Jarvis, the jailer's son, and
through him effected his escape. Forming
then a partoeTehtp of crime with his deliv
erer, he perpetrated a long series of burglar.
ies and thefts . It was in one of these iniqui.
tous operations that the chapter of his crimes
found its end. With this same Jarvis and
another confederate he broke into a store in
Bioghamton,N. Y. The two clerks Who slept
in the building were aroused. In the strug
gle which followed Ruloff drew a pistol and
shot dead one of the bravo clerks. In the
retreat which followed, the two associates of
Ruloff lost their way in the darkness, and,
falling into the river;
ware drowned. Ruloff
was captured on the following day. The evi•
deuce brought against him in the trial which
followed was unanswerable. Be was again
condemned to death. Last week be met hie
aeeteoce on the scaffold, in Binghamton.
Bat extraordinary as is this career of Grime
in itself, it is even more extraordinary in view
of the character of the man. This Ruloff was

height of his ambition. Whilb we muss ad

Can there be greater heroism in the reso

who banishes her dreamt, of hope while the

'lie is over the little brook,' said the lad.—

The clergyman sought an interview with
the mother immediately, and complained of
the profanity of her child. After telling her,
however, of what the lad said, she laughing

exandria (Va.)Gezette mentions the novel
suicide of a little girl twentyone months of
age, the child of .111r.Wm. Deavers, about
nine voiles below Alexandria. The child
held her breath while in a pet, as children
frequently do, and died, although she was
perfectly well before the crying fit. An et.
featual way to prevent unfortunate results of
this kind is to throw cold water io the face
of the child as soon as it begins to hold its
breath. The shook of the wirer will make
it gasp, and necessarily force it to take
breath, as well as divert attention from the
fit of anger.
