They were ail sentenced at tho late term of the United States Court for ths West District of Arkansas. On the 3d of September last six others were hung. These nht wero pxooutodl on the same scaffold.

Tbe son, aftor witnessing tbo murder of his father, pleaded for mercy, but tbe negro sent a bullet whizzing through his hr&iu also with his father’s pistol. This was near the Wichita Agency, In tiie Indian Territory. Tho murderer then wont to the reservation of Uio Wichita Indians and told the savages what be bad done, and offered tbom some of the spoils, bis victims having boon possessed of a good wagon and toam, a lot of goods, provisions, arms, etc., but bis attrooione deed AITALI.KD EVEN TUB INDIANS, and,lnstead of accepting hie offer, they reported (be facts at Fort Smith, and caused tho arrest of the murderer. Ho was taken to the scene of his foul deeds, having previously told the Indi •db where be bad killed the old man and bis •on. and by this means their bodies were dis covered. Wilson was of medium height, a native of Yirgluia, and of considerable intelligence. Ho served five yean in tbe United Btatea Army. 18 HAM 8 BALT, ajed about 25, and Gibson Isbtonubbee, both Choctaws, wore convicted of tho same crime, (Im nardor of an old Choctaw named Finnegan, au Indian doctor,and bis cook, a colored woman. This was near Stone-Walls, in tbo Choctaw No tion, about four years ego.

Beyond tho booty of a fsw worthless articles of clothing tho murderers had no object in committing tbe awful work of blood. The woman wae killed for nothing, but it was for her murder the prisoners woro tried in the United States Court, for hod both victims bten Indians the murderers, being Indians, too, the United States Court would not have had Jurisdiction and the murderers would most iiko y have gone free. Chewahm, a nephew of the old Indian doctor, discovered the murdered bodies tbo next da; as they were left by their murderers. He and Bap tist Wilson, grandson of the old man, were the chief witnesses. As usual in such coses, the murderers could not keep quiet. Wilson told a woman, Kittle Cobb, of the affair, and it soon leaked out, and led to tbolr arrest, trial, and conviction. onrners m'qbe, Choctaw, with his brothers Dave and Cbarlee, owned a place near the mouth of Doggy, on the Ded Diver, In the Choctaw country, and with tlielr brother-in-law, Moses Horner, were known throughout the country as a wilt), rock lets set of men. In their vlcinicv lived Robert and W, V. Alexander, wbito men, brothers, who often aided the authorities against the McGees.

New Youk, April 21.—The execution of John Dolan for tho murder of James H. Noo took place to-day in a most orderly and unexcit ing manner. Ho maintained hla composure, and protested his Innocence to the last, but be was purplo and cold for hours before tbo execution. Id consequence of tbe fact that bo was con victed on purely circumstantial evidence, he has had two or throe reprieves, and made applica tions for a new trial which were denied. The evidence was of tbo most complete and con vincing character, and Dolan was probably the only man in tbo city who had any doubts of his guilt. He was of tbo worst character of Now York roughs, and hod boon guilty of many crimes. He was no familiar to tbo police that ho was recognized from tho descriptions given of him by the dying victim, and arrested on eight. Many persons have been led by Dolan’s protes tations of innoccuco to bohovo that bo was wrongly condemned. These doubts are not shared by tho Tombs officers, who woro mostly familiar with tho prisoner. Ills reputation among them is that of a PHENOMENAL LIAR. They seem to think bo coold not speak the truth if no really wore innocent. He owes bis death to tho treachery of hts tongue. Tho circumstances attending tha crime were peculiarly atrocious. On tho morning of tho 22d of August. 1876, Mr. James H. Noo was found gagged and tied in his brush factory, No. 275 Greenwich street. His skull was fractured, and ho died a fewjdavs afterward in the Chambers Street Hospital. Ho bad* dis covered a burglar in bis warerooros. and had fought with him. The robber atruck him down witb an iron bar, bound him baud and foot, and then brutally denied his prayer for a dnnk of water to 000 l bis parched throat. ms ouounioT. Dolan was sentenced to die in December with three negro murderers, bat was respited at tbo eleventh hour. It is difficult to account for tbe apparent indifferenoo concerning tils own fate exhibited by Dolan during tho last few hoars of his life on soy other theory than that be secretly believed that ho who had escaped death ao often and so narrowly would escape it yet once again. He received tho intelligence of Qov. Tildou's final determination to allow tho Jaw to take its course with tho greatest composure, simply remarking that fho case would have boon different if ho had boon a rich man. Last evening, after ho had been told that his execution was inevitable, ho still proaorvod an outward appearance of porfeut calm. He oven affoctod joviality. Ho talked in cessantly,—eomodmoa about himself, some times about. other persona, some times about euoh matters of daily occurrence os wore likely to interest a man of low and vulgar Instincts. He amoked incessant ly and furiously, this being indeed tue only sign of mental anxiety given bv him. in his Inter view with bis wife and mother be alone was un moved. Ho had got to die, be said. Wbat wae tbo use of making a fuss about it? When his friends loft him. ho still continued to talk and smoko. He seldom alluded to his approaching death, unless to protest his innocence or refer to the case of somo wealthier murderer who had escaped tbe gallows. OUTBIDS TUX TOMBS. Tho knowledge of an Impending execution within the preoluota of tho Tombs has an ex traordinary faaciuatipn for tho inhabitants of the slams. No matter what kind of weather may prevail,—hot or oold, wot or d»y,—tho thieves, drunkards, and idlers of tbe Sixth Ward loave their foul nesw on " hanging-morn ing” and stand in solid oo urauo gazing fixedly on the stone walls of the prison. They can see nothing, and hear nothing, but tbe conscious ness that one of their class is laying down his life for a crime Is, for them, a sufficient attrac tion. To-day the gathering of these ill-favored citizens was unusually large ami repulsive in appearance. They congregated by hundreds on Franklin, Leonard, and Elm streets, and, from time to time, surged heavily against the double linos of policemen that kept thorn within proper boundaries, in Dolan they felt a special interest. The three negroes who were strangled in December were poor wretches of no account, bin this man was one of themselves. THE GALLOWS was erected in the roar of the male prison, on tue film street aide of tue Tomba, It was the same structure upon which the negroes were hanged, with the exception of a now cross-beam. It front ol It, ranged along the walla, wore loata for reporters aud Jurors, while an open space lu front was left for the Deputy aud Special Dep uty Sheriffs, Dolan, alter loaning himself restlessly upon bis bod for two boors, arose ami drueaed blmsolf at CdlO a. m. He was apparently refreshed, and was as cool and calm tut ever. Hood afterward he at tended mass. Then came the final parting from 1118 WIFE. a woman who has shown him much fldolity, aud whose wedded life began within prison walls. The poor womau was terribly affected, and wept piteously, but Dolau controlled bis feelings with wonderful fortitude. He shed a few tears, hut soon recovered his composure, aud bade his wife an affectionate farewell, giving her as a token of remembrance tho pot of flowers which stood in bis cell, ito then wrote a letter to hla counsel, thanking them for their labels in his behalf, ana again assert ing las innocence with the utmost solemnity, and declaring that the real culprit would bo dis covered before long. He listened attentively to the ministrations of fathers Durarquot and Barry until after 7 o’clock, when the Bheriff warned him that his titno bad come. He hoard the intimation without trepidation, aud sub mitted himself with wonderful apathvtothe hands of the hangman, who was present to pinion him.
