Brutal Harder of a Defenceless Wu CONFESS I OT* OF HOLLOHAK WHO KILLED MRS LAMPLEY IN BALTIMORE Thomas R. Hollohan, under sentence Of death for the murder of Mrs. Lampley, in Baltimore on the 2d of January, yesterday addresaed a letter to a member of the press who bad sbow n him some favors, in which he says; '-My sen tence is'just. I have broken the laws of God and man. and I am willing to give up my life, but I should like to have John Nicholson's com pany on the platform." He then goes on to state, in substance, as fol lows: "I met Nicholson, ana took a ride with him to Canton. He knew 1 had been in trouble before,and was not bashful in proposing this job. He said Mr. I.ainplev had $3,000 in the bouse, which we would get, but that we must kill the old woman, or she might recognize him. I re fused to enter the scheme then. On the day of the murder I inet Nicholson, and went to bis house with him, and learned there that the family were going to the theatre, leaving the old lady alone, and we determined to do the deed then, and arranged all the particulars. We entered the house without knocking and found Mrs. Lampley slttttag in a rocking chaii sewing. She treated us to cake and wine, and was putting up cake for Nicholson's children when he gave the signal. I choked her aitd he struck her in the stomach. She was then dead. and we carried her into an adjoining room. 1 remained with the lady while Josh went up stairs and broke open the boxes. I went up stairs for a minute, and he banded me the sil ver. We then left the house bv the stable, and on reaching the street Nicholson gave all the money, which I kept until the Sth of January, and then divided with him. Tucker knew nothing about it, and received none of the mo ney. Ifear this Nicholson may escape. li s* there is no Just law in the state of Maryland." He states that he made the confession in order that it might be published and the citizens know the truth. He wrote the confession with his own hand on six pages of foolscap. It is written plainly but with many errors of spell ing. Hollohan is to be executed June 13. Nich obon has not yet been sentenced, his case hav ing been taken to the court of appeals on a bill of exceptions. Arrest of thi Eighth Ward MrRDcnsi.

NnnplrlM* that taptala Mall im New York, May 21 Thirteen column* of the ] details of the Polaris exposition derived from the survivors were published this morning The prevailing impression of the nineteen un fortunates when left on the iee was that Bud dington had wilfully abandoned them. Thev also believe that Capt. Mall was poisona* Thev lived principally upon weal*, oocasiouall\ indulging In roast dog. They attribute THtHl WKKDIRri'L nitKIKV AT 10* to the sagacity and perseverance of Capt. Tli> son. The latter says that while the scien title results of the expedition amount to nothing, yet it demonstrated that it is possibb to i>enetrate farther into that mysterious region of sea and ice than Franklin,' Haves, or am other explorer proceeded, and that 'it turni?lied evidence of the probable existence of a Polar sea. Ou the loth or October, Capt. liall started on A SLBIHiK BXPEDITfO* S"RTH to renew his vigorous efforts in the direction ot the Polar sea. The sleds "two in number' were drawn by Esquimaux dogs purchased at Holsteinberg. Capt. Hall was accompanied bv ?loe Hans Christiau. and Chester, the mite The party wat absent two week* and returned to Polaris bay on the 24th of?October, 1 <7 I. No authentic information can be procured of the events that occurred on the two weeks trip, but it appears that after his return to the sbipCapt. Hall was almost immediately taken sick. CATT. BALL'S SICKHESS AND DEATH. John Heron, the steward. makes the follow ing statement "Captain Hall had good health up to the time ot returning from the sledge ex - pedition. He was not sick when he came on t>oard, but complained soon alter, and said that the heat of the cabin attected him. He cot mater to wash and put on clean underclothing I asked him what he would have; was anxious to get him something nice. He did not care aliout anything but a cup ot cotter, and did not drink even that. I had no conversation with Captain Hall.except to ask him it he was itettei or bow he was, and such like. He was sick a fortnight, aud talked very little. He was per fectly delirious tor the las't four days. 1 think he was paralyzed, heard no one sa\"so. It was my own opiiiiou. There was nothing sudden about his death. He was attended by l?r. B;s sels and Mr. Norton, who did everything in their jower to alleviate his suffering*.'but with out ettect. His illness cast a glcoiu over the entire company, and ? is tlie lust iiNMKfb|| Circumstance which had occurred m connection with the ex|>edition. His death made us all j feel very sad. AWFTL HI RIAL S4BNE. Capt. Tyson, speaking ot' Capt. Hall's death. *>ays :?" Hall was sick htteen days. At first he was paralyzed and then delirious. He was in sensible when he died. On the stb ot Novem ber he died, and was buried on the 11th. His grave bore south southeast, and about five hun dred paces distant from the observatory iu Po laris bay, which was in latitude 81 , :?* . longi tude 61?, 44', on shore. We erected a board over his grave, with an inscription cut. giving his name, age, (fifty years.) date ?l deatn, aud command of the North Polar e\|?edition. All hands, except the cook, attended his funeral. It was a dark, dismal, cold, windy and disagree able day. The wind was uiouitifully howling, and the hearts of all were enveloped in the deepest sadness. Old sailors, whose faces hail been bronzed by summer suns and frozen ?u Arctic seas, wept aloud. Capt. Hall was uni versally beloved, and his death at a time whet, the enterprise promised so ho|>ef ully was felt bv his survivors to be au irretrievable loss. Those thoughts were up|<erm<*st in the mind* of all and when the f uneral returned to tbc ship then was a hashed silence attending the perform ance." WHAT E-HiCIMArX JOE SAYS CAPTAIN HALL TOLD HIM. Kverv day, Esquimaux .loe wav*. some of the rescued partv and those left on the Polaris used auarrel. Hall told him when sick that wome y gave him something bait. Haddington did not take careot him. His throat was swelled ..rink. TYSOH AKD PARTY DESERTED BY THE POLAR!?.! The letter further states that Budd ngtou had been anticipating the breaking up of the ice tor some time, and If he had wished to have Tyson and his companions ou board lie could easily have represented matters to them in sach a light that they would not have ventured to have been absent at so critical a juncture, but no such intimation was given to the men on the ice. The vessel did not drift away so sudden I v that the men on the ice could not have been rescued from their perilous condition. Tvsoti says: "1 could have got aboard the vessel that night and been there now, but would not leave the women and children. My duty was on the ice. I thought be would get'back to us next day, which he could have done." Capt. Tyson ft inks the ill feeling of Buddington and a few others who were hie accomplices had continued from the first, on account ot Capt. Hall's deter initiation to go as far north as possible, ami Buddington's determination, from fear or some other cause, that he should not. At Hall's death most of the others were in favor of con tinuing and pushing north, and Tyson says that Baddington several times expressed nis deter mination to send them (Tyson and his partv ) on THE ROAD TO HELL as soon as an opportunity offered. He charac-1 teiizes Buddington as a great scoundrel, and declares that he purposely abandoned them to destruction. He gives Mvers the character ot being energetic, but thinks be was not suffici ently aware of the condition of affairs at the time of the separation and the possibility of getting rescued, to be able to give any opinion upon it. The Germans, according to hi* ac count , ruled the ship alter Hall's death, and there was neither law nor system on board, every one working entirely on his own account. Bissell and Bryant were anxious to get as far north as possible. M vers had worked hard, and lost all his labor. ? A lair* la Mpaln. CABL1BT Y1CTOBY AMD BI Tt RERY.
