On Friday next about noon, Thomas 1).

URHJHT ADMITS THAT HI KILLED ROOERSKt. Wright when he first was committed to prison acknowledged to a certain pcrsou that he had killed the peddler, and he alone, but subse quently he accused Ilemby, who lived in the same bouse. Within a few days past he has tacitly acknowledged the crime by saying: "I don't think that it is fair to send a man to the penitentiary when he killed four men,and hang me when I didn't kill anybody but the Dutch peddler." A few days since some gentlemen were ad mitted to the jail yard to see the gallows, and the trap was sprung to show how it workcJ. Wright hearing this noise came to the window, and seeing the party said, '? Thev have built that for Tom Wright, but I am d?dif they a ill hang me on it." WRIGHT'S THREATS. Yesterday afternoon, in consequence of cer tain threats made by the prisoner that he would not be hung, and would givetbem trouble, Ac., ho was brought out of Ins cell and stripped of his clothing to be certain that be had nothing secreted therein, and a new suit of cloihing having been brought to him he put on pants, shirt, and shoes, but refused to put on a coat; ? I'd hi* leg irons were changed tD others, to which he is attached by chain and handcuffs, in Hhich he will be kept until the morning of the execution. In consequence of his violent behavior he is debarred from receiving the vi?it* of anv others than his spirital advisers. HOW HI RKCAMB A CATHOLIC. Something has been said recently in relation to liis r spousal of the Catholic faith, alter min j istcrs of other denominations had been visiting | him. and it has been hinted that the priests forced themselves upon him. That, however, | is not the rase. Some time ago he was con fined with a prisoner of the Catholic faith who was visited by Rev. Father Roccofort. i I>uring his visits Wright became acquainted with the beliefs and doctrines of that church. After praying several weeks and receiving the instruction of the colored ministers, he said he cou'd not feel prepared to meet his Gad, ax he could not forgive Bembry. He then concluded to try the Catholic church, and taking the counsel of one of the guards he sent for Father Wigettovera week ago. and that minister has been visiting him almost daily since. This morning Wright seemed perfectly resigned to his fate. THE SCAFFOLD is the same on which .Jenkins, for the murder of his wife; Woods, for the murder of Cheese man, and Johnson, for the murder of his wile, were executed last fall and winter. It is a substantial structure 12 feet square.

In the center of this platform is (he trap, 5 by ?; f^et. flush with the floor. On the east s'de a piecc of plank ?; inches long and 3 inches wide extends an inch above the ffoor. This piece rests on the end of an iron rod attached to the curved iron, the ends of which supiKtrt the trap, and a foot 1 > i?itf placed on it. the trap i9 sprung. A flight of 12 wide steps ison the west side of the struc ture, near the southwest corner, and in the cen ter of the north and south sides two upright tiiubersextend to a height of 20 feet, supporting the cress beam off by s timber, from the center of which the fatal "noose hangs. The whole stru< ture is painted lead color. The prisoner being much heavier than his predecessors every precaution has been taken to have everything strong enough to prevent any accident, and under the beam two heavy braces have been placed, and a new rope of the be*t quality and larger than usual ha> been stretclo-d. noosed and soared, ready for the work of the law.

Tt?e people v . . ? ppoeed to the bill, and mmy fir pert)-holder* had accosted him in relation to it. n hia opinion the very introduction of the bill will damage the credit of tne Diatrict government.

He believed that the people generally would favor it,especially after it was fully understood. Mr. Campbell said that the bill was a step in the right direction, and with a provision, aa there must be,that it be approved by Congress, and ths bonds indorsed by the government, as they should be, the work of improvements now half completed could be finished. He waa not disposed to treat a bill of this nature so summarily. Improvements should go ou; the people wanted them, and the only question wre Id what extent we could so legally. The commis sioner* of the siuking fund had not sent in their re port,rltbough It waa their duty to do so at the be Snning of ths session. When that rams Is, the onse would know better how the finaacee of the District stood. He held that it was the duty of Con gress to complete the improvements, aad if the United States could be induced, by indorsing those bonds, to thus ackitowledc* the obligation, it would be t? the interest of the District. ?r. Dyer opposed the reference of tbe bill, as it would indicate that tbe House favored it. In his opinion it would impair the credit of the District; but at any rate ae harm would result if it waa laid over a few days at least.
