ALLEGED MURDER AND ABORTION. Mr*. Major KlHba.il the Virtta-Tfe* Die. cover? Made by the Boiurd of Health?Arrest of a Physician aad a N arse?They Are CMa mlitt-d far Examination-Affidavits la the Case?Aesistaal District Attorney Bedford Conducting tbe Prosecution, dee. A case of a very exciting aad serious nature was de veloped before Justice Howling, at the Tombs, yesterday morning, It being no lees than tbe alleged murder of Mrs. Elizabeth E. Kimball, widow of Ma)or Edward KimbaJf of Hawkins' Zouaves, who it will be remembered was accidentally shot during the war by the late General Cor coran. As tbe case appears at present Mrs. Kimball was the victim of an abortionist, and after her death tbe body was removed from the Irviag House, Broadway, where ?he died, to irovtdence, R. L, for Interment, on e coro ner's certificate, which failed to eet forth the true cause ef death. This fact having been communicated to onr Board of Health, the Coronar of Providence, K f., was requested to hold an inquest over tbe rcinaioa of Mrs. K iinbail,

then deposited in the receiving tomb, which was accord ingly done. A poet mortem examination showed that her death was the result of injuries to the uterus, caused by tbe introduction of instruments. It having been ascertained that a Or. George Beakley, of 43 West Tweaty fourth street, was tbe attending phy sician upon Mhl Kimball previous to ber death, and that Mrs. Nancy Cole, the nurse, living at No. ill W?et Twcniy-Ofth street, was emplo>ed at the bedside of the unfortunate lady during ber lad hours, slops wore taken to secure them on suspicion of bain* coin timed in the murder. .Accordingly on Tuesday afternoon Dr. Bcakloy and Mrs. Cole were arrested by detectives Md'ougail and Gilmore, and yesterday morning tbe prisoners aero brought before Justice Howling, at tbe Tombs. At the mar si rate's request Assistant District Attorney Gunning K. Bedford took charge of tho case for the pros return, and In doing so stated that from his know ledge of the case Mr*. Kimball tiled at tho lrv.ng House, in tnis city, ea tho 2SiU day of January last. She was attended by Dr. Beakley, Mrs. Cole acting as nurse. After Mrs Kimball's death Dr. Beakley, as the attending physician, gave a certificate, setting forth theroiu that death ensued primarily from a fall; secondly, from con gestion of tho bowel*. A burial permit was refuted, in con-equence of the tmur >per character of tho certificate, and on the following day a coroner's certificate signed by Robert Gamblo, suiting '-that death resulted from in juries accidentally received by a tall, January 22, 1867," was procured Upon this certificate a burial permit was granted, and tbo body sent to Providence, R I, Dr. Edward B. Dai ton, Sanitary Superintendent of tbe Metropolitan sani tary district, hearing that something waa wrong in tbe case, communicated witli Dr. enow, Saperlnl udent of Health of Providence, R. I. Dr. Snow thereupon in duced Coroner Nightman to hold an inquest, which was accordingly lioid. and the following verdict ren dered ?"That the said Elizabeth E. Kimball came to her death in consequence of injuries to tbe uterus, caused by aoine instrument or Insticintnte usod to produce abortion, by tbe hands of souie person to the jury un known." Mr. Bedford stated to tbe magistrate that he was informed that there would be much more evideuce furnished in a day or two, and expressed h s opinion that as tbe case now stood there waa probably cause sutfi ient to justify him (Justice Howling) in holding Dr. Beakley and Mrs. Cole, the nurse, especially Dr. Beakley, as he had given a false certificate.

Wh n s-k?Ht if he bad anything to mr why wmieneo of deaili should rot be po'sod upon him, Ihe prisoner, without betrnylug the leant emotion, and without the leas' trerr.or la hi* vr-lot, stated that be had no iniaiitioa of killing the deoeased, that, ae but three of the six chambers ol tbe revolver were loaded, he supposed be was oaly snapping the cap on one er the empty barrel#. The Boding* and sentence !n the oaoe were approved by Governor Menry, who appointed Friday, the 12th day of March, for the elocu tion. The Sheriff had completed hi* arrangements for this solemn event, and everything waa iu readiness for It, whan the prtaoner was * ran ted a anarrre w nut otrv. This boon was acconlod tbe unhappv man at the earnest mlintaUon of tbe Rev. Father V ittaimmons of the Church of the Tmmscn'ate Conception, and of sav. oral otheiw, who manifested an ioterentlnhM spiritual wo 1 fkre. -ubaogueiit to hit arrest and especially during the trial, Wiiev waa stubbornly ml liferent to nil bt* per ilous surroundinga After the sentence he was equally perverse, refining to listen to the consolations of reli gion until within a week of the day appointed for hw execution. At this time there was s change in his tearing which wu as remarkable aa it was unex pected. Tho-e who had known him in times bock predicted that be wonld meet bis fhte with out flinching. But they were mistakes. As his fate approached, his hardened heart was softoned, hi* stubborn spirit icUted, nod ho ot last consented to listen to tbe messengers of pesos and good will. Father ffitx Simmons was then requested to remain with him, and render such spiritual service as he could at thai late day. Tha Governor ?f the t oaimoiiweallh, when ap pealed l*. grauted the respite of all days, that Father Fitzaimnioo* might bare ample time to prepare the sojl of the miserable man for the fearful doom awaiting him. Although B?iihcr Wiley nor his parent* hud ever been connected wi'h thatattiollr rbii-h. hecboee a reprove ill ative et that faith to attend him In hi* last momenta on oartb Notwithstanding Wiley's statement to the Court that ho did not Intend to kill bis victim, ho baa treated tbe subject, since his sentence, with the same Indifference as to it* moral effect thai bas marked his career through lire. The same morbid feeling which has Induced many injudicious persons in Philadelphia to request the -par don of the most desperate scoundrels?such as Spring, Probst and others?on ths plea of moral Inaaaity, has boon at work in thl* case to defeat the ends of Justice. Through the kindness of ths District Attorasy, I paid n visit to the jail this after# 00a to order to oonvlnoe myself and Inform the public as to the reports of the prisoner's Insanity. I never mot n more mm boa In my life, and, sines my later slow with Probst, a more desperate criminal. 1 re mained quiet while the District Attorney spoke to htm s few friendly words, and In s casual manner questioned htm regarding s certain robbery In which he had been engaged, alee as to * dlsturhasce which occurred among the prisoners at the jail during l**t night. The prisoner is about five feet right inches In height. W* wee re a sullen, downcast look, ssoosting whsn quts Uoned la regard to bin crimes, wb*a his fhoc tmmsdU at ly iiieatiasa with a glow of ratisfaclioa m big crimi nal uffrncot, aud bis appearante is that of a good-tut* tursd man. In a momoni, ho.veisr, lbs smile fades: sad again yon ass the villain. An important point which It was not deemed neces sary to bring out in the trial (tho fact of the criinu being so. fully established) lndica'oe that tubs la not the firs! murder which the prisoner has eommlttad; and perhanj the fact of the knowledge of the first murder leu to tow execution of the second. While out on an excursion in the woods a q larrel took place between Alice Mcfcllwee and Wiley. Alice turned on him and demanded that b? should desist from tormenting her or she wuuid expose him. He turned on his heel and said, "Yes, you f You can hang me if you choose." In the evidence, during the trial, a witness testified that tha prisoner said to him, " I expect to be hung within nlno mouths, and I have already purchased tho rope to stretch me." 1 have made every endeavor to search afler the facts in tbia rasa, and carefully examine ibem. The conclu sion is, that life is worthless if this villsin Is not exe cuted. THE L8U1SUWA LEGISLATURE.
