The examination of Wilfred Fitts, the bov who recently committed a daugerous and mys terious assault In the night time upon a boy named .fobn Emmon. of Candia. New Hamp shire, resulted as the telegraph has already an nounced, in his return to the custody of his father. The Justices who held the oourt. the counsel in the case and others, previously vist t d the injured bov and the premises where the assault w as e mmttted. They ftand that ha la la-t recovering, though his lace and mouth will be much disfigured, and he will suffer the loss ot two fingers and a thumb. It appeared from the testimony of about a dozen witnesses that there was no doubt that the assault was committed by the boy. Fitts. while in a Mate of somnambulism, at about 11 o'clock at night, and that he was totally un conscious of his act. It also appeared that though the boy was never in the honse before, he went straight to the bedside of the boy Emer son. ami after inflicting the ghastly wounds be returned to the residence of his uncle, which whs a mile distant. It was shown that he en tered a neighbor's house by a ladder only a few nights previously, and was found in the som nambulic sleep with abroad axe in his band. Isaac N. Fitts, of Lowell, the boy's lather, testified that he had performed many strange feats while in the somnambulic state. Samuel Leavitt. the jailor at Exetor, testified that the I boy Fitts assaulted several prisoners at the jail | wbile in an unconscious state. The boy Wilfred was very critically examined I and answered every question with great readi ness and apparent candor. He appeared to be I in excellent physical hea'th. He visited the boy Km or son yesterday morning. The inter view was pleasant, though Fitts expressed little 1 sympathy tor Kmer-on. Tit LEV HoWB, AXDTIIK SEl HIT of JUS C \ RIU^-A recent number of the Congregation alist contains an Interesting biography or Ti'.ley Ilowe. whose nsme was a household word throughout New England well-nigh a century Mtice. His easy, aimless li e, and his eccentric ities of costume and manner, as he rode hit fa vorite nag npand down the country from M line to Connecticut, gave him and hi* character a notoriety that has crystallized into the familiar proverb of "Easy as old Titley." Ninety years ago Tilley Howe, then good-looking and fre->h from I>artmoath college, a preacher of the tK?s pel. ami delighted with his profession, stood up to be wedded to a Yankee girl." Then came on the unsolvable mystery or a long, clouded, wasted life. His own?bis "lawfully wedded" wife, with the nuptial vow still warm on her treacherous lips, *ud<Lenly and sullenly refused to remain with her own husband! Ten minute* later she was on her way back to the paternal mansion, which she had Just covenanted to ex change for her own life-long home! She abso lutely sealed her lips agalusi the first word of explanation. She made no sign. The 4eed was done. The reasons were her own. She was persistent. No ingenuity, no importunity, could draw the secret out. She took it to her grave. >ipver on earth would she see Tillev Howe any more. Never a syllable from bis peii would she ever read. Overtures for re-union could not reach her in this world, or ever pro ceed from her. Bv her own bands the veil was not lifted, ami now It never can be. We tur* the leaf to say that Tillev Howe was thereafter a wreck. He abjured all knowledge of a single fact on his part, or on hers, that could have stimulated her to such strange recreancy, lint the delicate balances of reason had boen struck, ami could never be restored. He was bewil dered. He knew not what to make of it. The mental energy to breast the storm could not be tallied. He had outlined a life-work, with the simplicity of a chi'.d. He felt an assurance that he would work it all through bv the aid of one co-working hand. Alas, that "that very hand should have been lifted to defeat and 'destroy him forever! Ever afterward he l.ecame the im personation of indolence and inefficiency. DtADsn the threshold of success might very well have been the epitaph on the living burial of two nu mbers of a London law firm who have recently drupped out of life. One of them died ot actual -tarvation. and the pathetic ac -Hint ol the destitution and misery of his life appeired in the London Ti ??-.<. and was told so impressive ly that it attracted much attention. A short tune afterwards his partner was arrested for stealing a l?ook from the law library of the In ner Temple, and selling it for ten shillings. 1 he proof was clear and he was convicted. Be fore receiving sentence he said: "I have gone for weeks and months without a dinner, living upon bread and tea. I have sold the coat from my back, the shirt from my body to supply dai ly wants; but I have never been charged' with dishonesty. I have worked hard on tite shelves of the Inner Temple Library. There are b.joks there of which 1 am the author. I have done all that mortal man could do to obtain an hon e-t and honorable livelihood." He closed bis storv by begging the Court to puuisb him to the extent ot the law. hoping "to find, before his itn pri?onm? nt should end, iu a felon's grave the rej-o^e he had vainly sought In the pursuits of life." The dudge imposed on him the lightest penalty of the law?tlx months' imprisonment. Ills fat'.-is but another incident to prove tbit the real jioor are not the vulgar masa who beg from doo*- to door ami at the street corners, but the mm who eat their hearts away in vain ef forts of striving for the foothold iii the world to which tbeir aspirations and their abilitios should entitle them to. I Flame Sbssitiv* to S'TJtt* Some curious I exi-eriments were made, a few years aro, b?r Prof. Tyndal, on "sensitive flames." h? ob served that in a drawm '-room the gas-lights kept time with the music by tbeir ilaiues becom ing longer or shorter, according to the v irious notes produced on the piano. This he justly at tributed to the vibrations caused in the air, ?nd he soon, by direct experiment, confirmed this view. This experiment was applied to the meas ure of explosive substances in the following way: At a distance of five meters from a fl.nue he placed an anvil, on which be alternate!v laid l'ulnmiate of mercury and iodide of nitrogen, and then caused tbeir explosion by the stroke of a hammer. In this way be ascertained that the latter substance produced no effect on the flame, while the fulminate caused it to vibrate according to the notes la. do. ml, fa, sol. Hmico he concluded, not only that the vibrations affee t< d by the iodide were different from those of the latter only affected certain notes, excluduig> the intermediate onrt. These experiments he repeated with different explosive sobs tan esand with similar results confirming bis theorv. The Jack son Status.?The Richmond F.n quirtr says: I>unug the war a numbr of Eng lish gentlemen, who sympathized with the Southern cause, among them Ber-sford Hope, united in the eflort to procure a suitable memo rial of the great Virginia soldier who fell at Chancellorsville. They have had made a statue of bronze, of heroic size, and representing the hero as standing in a favorite attitude of absorb ing thought. The work was completed some time since, but owing to circumstances which can be better understood thau expressed, the donors have postponed its shipment to this country. Lately, however. .Mr. Hope has writ ten to a \ Irglnla officer, who was the Intim tte aud comrade ot Stbuewall dacksoo, asking his advice as to the best disposition to be made of the statue, and the recipient of this communi cation has consulted with other Confederate oflicer*. As yet. no determination has been ar rived at; but it cannot belong before a tite will becliooen. A OrEMYioH or Time?A curious lawsuit was lately heard in Liverpool. The steamer Caspian was, on August 8, 1X71, insured by her owners for twelve months for ?23,600. On the :<th of August, 11572, the vessel being then at sea the insurance was renewed for ?25,000. It so happened that ?>me time on the night between the *th and i*th of August the Caspian struck on a rock In Belle Isle Straits and became a total loss. The point in controversy was as to whether the wreck occurred before or after midnight, the underwriters, in the latter event becom.ng responsible lor the increased amount of insurance. It was proved on the part of the Ownera that the wreck did take place after midnight, according to English time, though ou the other hand, It was shown that the com putation of time at the scene or the disaster would bring it before the important hour. Tl?o Jnry held, however, that the calculation of time should follow the place of the contract, and decided in favor of the owners. The Embalming f>r Max7.uk** Boot*.?A correspondent from Genoa wriios us th ?t on the anniversary of Maxrinl's death, the public were allowed to see his body, which is being em Laimed. It was quite dren?>. with patentleath er boots, black trousers, and wrapped up in a large drewing gown.
