HE AT. estate gossip. Holders "Saddled Up" and Anxious to "Unload," Frio* Very Firm?The Improvement on the Eiverside Drive? Satisfactory Completion of the Labor on the northern Boule vard?flpnyten Dnyvil Ship Ca nal?Our Rew War da. May moving, Inclement weather and stiff prices have had a depressing influence upon the real es tate market since the present month has set in, specially aa regards sales at auction. The fact is, Uie land released by the disposition of three im mense estates-Post, Carman and Harsen-has, by the high rates obtained therefor, in a great meas ure UNSETTLED OPERATIONS. Holders of property have become emDoldened by we success of these sales and screwed up prices to ? tension which, if kept up, must surely snap, while purchasers, pleading stringency of money abstain from buying until more favorable prospecw Appear. The major portion of onr heavy operators In city real ostare are ??saddled ui>? to a frightful extent, and have been eudeavoring to "unload," with a ?lew of investing in other property. It is safo to aseert that a great deal of their property is at present worth one hundred per cent advance over the original cost, and only the need ol ready funds can be pleaded for their trying to sell. The en hancement of these values may be ascribed to the rapid Improvements going forward uptownward. Most noticeable, however, Is the STEADY ADVANCE IN PRICES OF PROPERTY located in the vicinity of Riverside Park. Since its establishment, by legal edicts, the energy of Com missioner Van Nort has been manifestly shown in the rapid progress made in the work. Ai soon as the weather becomes settled Mr. Van Nort will add ft larger lorce to that already employed, and in this maimer secure its early completion. While a few old logies deprecate the idea of opening and widening streets onr go-ahead citizens every improvement In this direction nn lh^r nrm contribute the assessments levied on their property.

OrganltatUn o * the CommUalon.rs March af Improvement-Cheap tar Fare ??d Forwia^e-JeW C"T* of Batry-HapM Traaait-What the Railroad CoinpaaU* Are Doing. The Commissioners! appointed by the New Jersey Legislatures construct a boulevard In Hudson county, from Bergen Point to the northern limit of the coanty, held their first meetmR at Taylor s Hotel, Jersey City, ori Saturday afternoon. Orestes Cleveland was elected Chairman; William t. Brown, Secretary, uud David Smith, Treasurer. Leon Abbott, counsel to the Board, was in attendance. The Commissioners were In session two bourn, and the next meet tag will be held next Friday, when an engineer and surveyor will be appoiutcd. The lively time will commence when the location of Jersey City Is to be decided upon, as there Is a great diversity of opinion on the snbject. Side by side with this Board Is the Hudson County Real Estate Association, comprising about one ' hundred members, ohlefly wealthy property owners who are engaged In a movement for the reducUonof car tare and ferriage, and the area* aim of the Association is to give aid to every public improvement. They have ap pointed a committee of ten to report upon fiiw ifHsibiiitv of making Jersey City 4 oort of entry. In the first named movement they have already met with some succAs, for the fare on the Pavonla Horse Railroad lias been reduced to six cents from the lerry to West Knd. Tickets are aoid for eight cents Horn West End to New \ ?rl?. lnclud lnn ferriage. Mr. Shlppen, one of the members of the Association, wears the mantle of Edwin A. Stevens, and hence it Is hoped that the day is last approach ing when a reduction of fareu will be made on the Ilobokeu lorries and the Hoboken Horse Hallroad on a through trip. The movement will continue till the fare on all the horse railreads Is reduced to five cents within the limits of Jersey City. The rapid transit fever ol the great metropells te contaaioua. Already tlie Northern Railroad Coiu naniTSave located three stations within distances of "wo milesT The first la "Homestead," at the Plank road; tiie second "Wllsonville,' at the county row, and'the third "Tyler Park" at ^caucus road. For these early concessions the public aie indebted entirely to Mr. Charles G. Sit-son, Mho Mauds foremost In railroad enterprises. Th? Pennsylvania Railroad has a station at \\ est End, 1 the Central at Communlpaw, the Newark aud New York at Want Bergen. The only line of railroad that lags behind In me race is the Jersey City and Bergen Horse Railroad, lor it Is the only line that closes Its work at mldulglit. The amount spent by railroad compa nies during the first year to acquire title to property in Jersey City and vicinity la ilft.ooo,ooo, and double that amount is being spent in improvements comprising road Kpiia nierH workshops, ?levators, il6pot8, Ac. H&r sluius Cove la being rapidly filled up! It will con tain piers lor Hhl^ngjTrHght^poU forthe Peuu syivaula Railroad, a large depot for Uve stock aud dressed meat. In connection with the immense abattoir to be erected near th? Huekensack River, aud the largest elevator In the world for hoisting grain, Ac. These improvements will cover the entire water front from the wharf of the White Star line to the Jersey City ferry and will be carried out at the expense of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company. Hie ele vator alone will cost $1,600,000. Large warehouses will also be erected near the piers. The Erie Railway Company own 800 acres of meadow land west of the tunnel, the title of which has been fransmltted to them bv Jay Gould. On this tract they intend to build workshops and to rec aim by degrees the marshy section lroru the tunnel to> the llackcnsack River. The Pullman Palace Car Com nanv it is rumored, are about to purchase i50 lots west or the hill in this section for a car ractory. Habitations mnst be provided for the artisaus so that within a very lew years a suburban town may be added to the rapidly growing municipality of Jersey City. OBITUARY. Prince Camlllo Ma.s?lmo. By despatches from Rome we arc Informed *1 the death of Prince Camlllo Massimo, lor a long time Director or the Post OtMcc Department under the Pontifical government. The Prince, who was one or the most devoted adherents ol the Pontiff Plus the Ninth, was married twice ana leaves a son by each wife; by the first the Prince of AjsoIi, who Is now Prince Massimo and Is mar ried to a hall sister of the Count de Chombord, by his second Prince Lancellottl, who served u.

From Italy we have an announcement of the death of Colonel Gabriel Ussanl, of tne Royal Nea politan attlllery and aide-de-camp of HU Royal lllghness the Count of Caserta, at Botzeu, In the Tvrol The deceased took a prominent part In the defence of Oaeta in 18?Mil, and was present with Couat Caserta at the battle of Mentana. M. AtcIim de Caumoat, We are informed from France of the occurrence of the death, at his chateau of Magny, in Normandy, of M. Arclase de Cauuiont, aged seventy years, President of the French Archujologlcal Society. During his lite he devoted himself particularly to the history of his native department, and to hlni is due the erection of the column to commemorate the expedition of William the Conqueror to Lng laud. Alfred George Goodwyn, Major General Alfred George Goodwyn, late of the Royal (Bengal) British Engineers, died at his residence in Bath. Just lately, of Inflammation of the lunirs. He received a medal for his services In t e campaign in Arghaulstan la 1842.

The monthly obituary record Hat or tke English War Office records the death of one of the gallant six hundred who so immortalized themselves by their daring In the memorable charge of British light cavalry at Balaklava during the Crimean war. Captain D. T. Chamberlayne entered the army a? cornet in the Thirteenth light dragoons. He em barked with his regiment for the Crimea on the breaking out of the war with Russia, and greatly distinguished himself by his courage and coolness In the fatal charge ol Baiaklava. He rode up to the .enemy's guns on the right hand of Lord Cardigan In the front of Ida regiment, arid on lighting his way out with the lew of Ills gallant comrades wuo remained, hia favorite charger, Pimento, was shot three times through the body beiore he lell, aud then his gallant rider was seen standing within the range or the Russian battel les, the ground around him being ploughed op by round allot and shell, coolly taking off the saddle and holsters, and with them on su* arm he walked quietly up to the rising trronnd, where what remained or the gallant six hundred had halted and formed up; and there he was received with a burst of hearty cheering. The rhanrer (Pimento), Captain Chamberlayne's old mend Lord Palmerston, waa about purchasing lor his own stalls in Enaland, bnt/nost kindly, on his joining the regiment, handed It; >ver to him, with these words?"I meat wllllegly waive mv rlgbt of preemption In favor ef the yosng dragoon/' P'anfain chamberlayne was so much belovedby the ?trniSrf hWtreop that, oa his retiring from the armv each man subscribed a dayVpay and pre Sented him with a very nandsomely <&ased silver ?nntT i?)x and a feelingly expressed address.

Awry thrown ?Pea to the public any collection of pictures commensurate in Importance with those which, ior the last few weeks, have been exhibited the handsome hall 626 Broadway. He ban at last decided to pat them up at auction, and since this win, prebably, he one of the lew really line sales ef pictures exclusively, with which the aeason win close, it Is worth while devoting some atten tion to the principal themes, premising that the public disposal will occur on Tuesday and Wednes day evenings at the Somervllle Art Gallery. "The Cymbals," by Joseph Coomans, is a small picture upon which even the somewhat sated eye can dwell with pleasure. It presents the head and shoulders of a young girl, ingenuously clapping music out of the instrument which St. Paul uncer emoniously designates as "Wnkllng." Reflected light illuminates the face, the back of ihe head and the shoulders, and the expression of the young cymbalist is deliclouxly tender and virginal. A clever but eccentric contribution Is "Horace Reciting His Odes," by Armand Heullant. We can not just now recall any description that places Horace amid precisely these surroundings, which give more the idea of a modern picnic than a clas sical recitation. Of William T. Richards, the Phil adelphia artist, who during the last few years has advanced In nls art with studies remarkably long and rapid, there are some fine examples, such as "Deal, near Long Branch," "Good Harbor Beach," "Annisquam Beach," and "Entrance to Ports mouth Harbor." in theflrst we nud a soft pearl gray sky, with the veiled sun reflected In the mois ture retained by the beach after the tide has re tired.

It will embrace also notes on the prominent spas of Europe, and our own seaside resorts. Professor sabatiek was a little while ago sum marily expelled from Strasbourg, for a lecture, "De l'lnfluencc des Femmes sur la Literature Francaise." Curiously enough, the conquerors ol Alsace expelled him for a reflection upon German women, which he never uttered, tike offending sen tence being a mistranslation.

A New Book, on the "Physical Effect* of Forests upon Atmosphere and Soil," has been issued by Dr. Ebermayary, a Bavarian, and superintendent ol a "forest school" at Aschaffenburg. This Is be coming a vitally Important subiect to America, where we have no "forest schools," and shall soon have no rorests, unless we learn to take care ol them. Some Newspaper proprietors of London have been conferring on their liability to be sued for libellous reports. They do not ask for exemption from responsibility, but that the law may give the news papers the right totue the speaker of the libel for the amount of the damages and costa. This seems reasonable enough. It Is a hard rule that lets off the ntterer of a libellous speech and punishes the reporter. The British and Foreign Bible Society are now engaged In the translation of the Bible Into Japan ese, and the Gospel of tit. John has been completed and printed. Rai.pi!

Moke* Says That He Kxpeeta Nothing from Governor Diz if the Hew Trial ia Denied Him?He Declare* That to Forfeit His Lift is a Fate Preferable to Fining in a State Prison. Edward 8. Stokes haw now been confined some sixteen months in the Tombs prison, and, as his case will have to go before the Court or Appeals in June, there is great interest manifested in the public mind as to the decision to be given by that Court, WHICH MP8T BE FINAL. The late decision of the General Term 1b not looked upon a* one or great importance among leading lawyers, who were spoken to on Saturday a ternoon by a Herald reporter as to what in fluence the General Term would have on the rate !!! m*8' The C1We l* a mo8t Pillar one, and to make the points that are to be brought up in it before tiib court of appeals etter understood it will be necessary to brledv review the history or thld cause cClfebre.

His counsel put in special pleas Immediately, all of which were over Jnj?ru,lura> exccPl one pica as to the legality or the Grand Jurjr. issue upon this pica was Joined, and after a long trial be rore s Jury, or nearly a month's duration. Judge Cardoso refused to permit the jury to decide tne case, and found adversely to the prisoner.

Stokes counsel excepted at once. This particular exception seems to have a very great bearing on the case?a most important one lor stokes, and consequently the decision of the Court or Appeals on this point will bo watched with interest. Sev eral or the most eminent lawyers in the city, during the last week, have expressed the opinion that where evidence is taken IN A CAPITAL CASE before a jury the question is for the Jury, and not for the Judge, to determine. Among those who have expressed themselves In this way are John McKeon and John E. Burrill, neither or whoia have taken any part in the present proceed lnps for or against Stokes. After ono month's legal squabbles the prisoner, Stokes, was placed on trial berore Judge Ingraham, who presided. The trial lasted more than three weeks, and re sulted in a disagreement or the Jury, five or whom wero tor acquittal and seven ror murder.

Openlac Reception ?t the Wew A?y luin-A Haeceaaful "B?gg?*"-"Tlie Sil ver Book of Iilto." On the 24th of May. 1870, ft group of nine catimable ladies of thia city, being Mrs. llenrj Leo, Mrs. P. J. Joachimaen, Mrs. Henry B. Herta, Mra. Zlm Bern ateln, Mrs. Jacob L. philllpa, Mra. 8. Wolff, Mra. Leo Wiae, Mra. Isaac JacobB an<i Mra. Addle Lit thauer, established mainly tlirougli their In dividual and Joint efforts an Institution known as the Home for Aged and Infirm Hebrews. This band of sisters started out with many dlfflcultiea before them, but with high hopes, and opened the "Home" at No. 216 West seventeenth atreet, their stock In trade consisting of three aged Inmates. Out .vlth patience and energy the ladles overcame the obstacles that confronted | them, and yesterday, close upon the third anniversary of the founding of the asylum, they formally opened a new ami more com fortable and capacious house at 822 Lexington avenue, on the northwest earner of sixty-third street. Mr-s. Leo, the prime mover of the enter- i prise died a few months since, but the surviving ladies have pushed her highest hopes to their reali zation. The present Home Is a neat five story I brown stone building, admirably situated, fitted with all proper conveniences and neatly furnished throughout, it has accommodations lor tllty in mate*, and contains at present twenty-ejulit, three of whom are males. The oldest inmate is a lady, a trifle over eighty-seven years of age, and nearly all or them are luflrm as well as aged. Three of the number are affilcted with blindness. Six appli cations for admission are now being Investi gated and considered. The house is new and has been neatly and comfortably furnished through out. The association embraces a membership or 500. representing every Hebrew congregation in the city, and the institution and its affairs are con trolled ny a board of directresses, as follows:? President, Mrs. P. J. Joachimaen; Vice President, Mrs. H. It. Herts; Treasurer, Mrs. '/.im Bernstein; i Mrs. Isaac Jacobs, Mrs. Charles Schlesstnger, Mrs. rJ. L. Phillips, Mrs. Leopold Bamberger, Mrs. S. Wolff, Mrs. llenry Morrison; Honorary Secretary and attending Physician, Simeon N. Leo, M. D.; Honorary Counsel, Judge P. J. Joachlmscu, ol the Marine Court. The opening reception continued from three to six o'clock yesterday aiternoon, ami a large number or prominent and wealthy Israel ites visited the institution, among them being Nov. Dr. Ilondl, Mr. Henry Leo, Mrs. Samuel Lavenberg, President of the Ladles' Mount Slual Hospital As sociation; ex-Judge Dlttenhoeier, Mr Harmon Nathan, Mr. L. Morgenthau and Mr. Elllnger. All the lady oillcers were present, and did the honors of the reception with much grace towards all visitors. They evMently understand the nature of the work they hayy undertaken (intl mean to make it a great and permanent Institution. Tt is sustained entirely by voluntary contrlimtious, added to the annual fee of |5 lor membership. Mrs. Judge Joiicliimsen states that since she has been connected with the Home association she has be come a confirmed "beggar," and a successful one, too; begging from the rich for tho poor, with a tact that, generally reaches the mark. Mr. Morgen thau has undertaken to open a "Sliver Book or Lire," and is filling it up handsomely and at paying rates. The pages ol this volume arc or sheet silver, and those who subscribe a certain sum to the Home lund are entitled to be inscribed in graven and enduring letters on these argentine tablets. The ladies will issue a second volume ir necessary, and, If business is really good, perhaps a third, and so on. This Home Is the ouly Hebrew Institution of the kind In America. FEDERAL OFFICE AFFAIRS. The Caatom House and Other Public Offices Closed?Honors to the Memory of the Late Chief Justice?U*pl?l Transit Mall Dellverlea?Renovating the Old Poat Office?What the Improve menta Will Cost. Late on Friday afternoon despatches were re ceived here rroin the Treasury Department to close the various government ofllces alter twelve o'clock noon on Saturday, out or respect to tho memory or the late Ciller Justice Salmon P. Chase, whose runeral took place that day. Tho Custom House was closed punctually at noon, aud alter that only Mr. C. P. Clinch, the veteran Assistant Collector; his Chief Clerk, Mr. Joseph Treloar; Mr. Samuel (I. Ogden, Auditor, and his Assistant Auditor, Mr. Samuel J. Jacobs, and a very rew others were present, and these merely to finish up the business of the dhy. Col lector Arthur and the balance of the officials at tended the obsequies of the illustrious deceased. The Sub-Treasury was likewise closed by orders from headquarters, and no business transacted in the arteruoon, as were also various other govern mental ofllces In this city. Mr James, the Postmaster, closed the executive portion of the Post office, but the receipts anil distributions or the malls continued without interruption. To-day the new deliveries to stations A, C and E, located on the west aide or the city, will be commenced via the New York Elevated Itallroad. Mr. l>. W. Wyman, tho Superintendent ol this route, has set apart a special car for the accommodation ol the malls, and through this new system residents ou the line or these stations, may depend upon their letters being distributed hair an hoar alter they are dropped Into the letter boxes. Mr. James, in order to make his new system or "rapid transit" delivery com plete. should avail hlniseir or the steamboats ply lug on the East Kiver, and arrange with the com pany for carrying ami throwing oil tho mails. I lie boats might stop at Grand street for the bags in tended ror station B, in this street; at Eighth street lor station 1), at Twenty-filth street for station P, at Fiftieth street for station U, on Sev enthavenue, and to accommodate station Hi at Kitty-eighth street; stations M and N, at Carinans vllle and Tubby Hook, take care of themselves, they being supplied hy the way of the Hudson ltiver Railroad. In the absence or steam communication on the east side, the above recommendations re garding the steanilioat racllltles are offered ror the benefit or the Poatmast.er's consideration. His en deavors to secure prompt and irequent deliveries or malls have secured hiin already hosts or mends. The floors ol' the office lire cleared every night, and nothing available is left over for the next day. He devotes special attention to expediting uews PlThe remote prospect of finishing the new Post Office ror occupancy, and the limited space and badly veTitllated condition or the old building, has induced Mr. James to apply to the department at Washington ror authority to have necessary re pairs made. Mr. A. B. Mullett, Supervising Archi tect ot the Treasury Department, and his assistant, Mr. Stelnine'ta, have made surveys and are about commencing work on the proposed improvement.

The fixing of room, cutting opening in main wall, taking down arch and bird, fixlhit route agent*' room and plat lorms wtere the carpenters work, will cost about lifteen Impossible to arrive at a due estimate, as all the work will have to be done without Interfering with the nubile business. In reward to tho taking down ot the old tower I would state that I Intend to make a temporary tdattorm at a point which will be the top ot the tower when lowered, and will engage carti to remove the debris, which will be landed down at the sircot through sliutes. I went to the top of the tower and lound that the side wall* are split almost all the way, making the front partition very unsafe. I Intend to let the battering piers of the tower remain to protect the old inaiu front wall of the church, which wall Is also In a delapldated condition.

Men, Women and Children, Nearly AH Colored People, at the Foot of the Oallow8. [From the Uttle Hock Gazette.] Brown Hrewer, the colored man who was sen tenced to be hung at a recent term of Court at Searcy, for the murdsr or a colored man by the name of Kayley, paid the extreme penalty of the law on Friday afternoon, May 2, at nineteen mtn utes past two o'clock. At a few minutes befora two o'clock the prisoner left the Jail in a lumber wagon, seated on his coffin?a good one, covered wlru black cloth. He was not in the least nervous or trembling. From the Jail he was driven to tha place of execution, about half a mile east of Searcy. The place wus the same where a white man wan executed one week before. A large number of peo ple from the surrounding country were present, and a number of women, mainly colored. The prisoner, as he rode to the place of execution, calmly viewed the scenes for the last time, meanwhile bowing anil talking to friends and acquaintances. During the ride to the scaffold the noose was attached to the prisoner's neck and he playfully toyed with tha cud of the rope. Accompanying tUe wagon were twenty-six sheriff's guards, armed with revolvers, rifles and shotguns, who watched the movement* of the prisoner and the multitude, determined afi all hazards to enforce the learful penalty of the law. After arriving at the scaffold Sheriff Pettey examined It minutely. The prisoner remained la the wagon a lew minutes, answering questions propounded to mm by persons present. Dr. Lewis Bigham asked the prisoner If ha was ready, to which ho answered, "lteadr and willing.'' While talking In the wagon I he was observed to smllo a num ber of times. Kev. Alexander Stephenson (colored). | offered the prisoner spiritual consolation, to which" i he listened with bowed head, answering qucs | tions only in monosyllables. Alter talking a few minutes the pastor withdrew, his eyes dimmed with tears. Sheriff Pettey approached the con demned and asked, "Are you rea ly?" receiving as an answer, "Ves." John stamp (colored), with tears in Ills eyes, conversed a few moments wlthi the prisoner, but in tones so low the reporter was unable to hear him. The prisoner answered in a, steady voice, saying:?"One thing, 1 am ready ami willing to go, and believe God has forgiven me for what I have done. I have prayed to him night and rtav to be forgiven, and I think everybody should ask to bo forgiven.'' After this conversation ceased, one of the guards took hold ot the rope which was attached to tha doomed man's neck, while the latter leaped lightly from the rcur end of the wagon aud took Ills posi tion at the foot of the scaffpid stop.*. Mr. William Walker, who was upon the scaffold, prayed lor him and repeated tne Lord's prayer, the prisoner say ing "Amen." The prisoner at the conclusion of the Lord's prayer dropped suddenly 011 his knees, trembling violently and clinching Ids hands. At the conclusion or the prayer he arose with a deathly, heart-breaking groan, his face having' changed color, becoming tingpd with yellow. When lie arose the persons on the scaffold came down, and the prisoner, the Sheriff and two deputies went up, the former with a light elastic step. The Sheriff was very pale aud slightly nervous. After lie was placed under the beam Sheriff Pettey addressed the people present 111 solemn tones of saduess, saving that they had assembled 011 an occasion similar to that of last Friday?to execute the law. ile warned all tha people present of the danger of lawlessness, and particularly the colored; and said the will of Jus tice in all cases would surelv be executed. After a few remarks he read the ueath warrant, his voice trembling perceptibly. At the close he turned and said, "Brewer, have you anything to say r" The condemned then looked on all sides, and, with a slight bow, said:?"I say, let my fat* bo a warning to all people. All should try to love and serve God, aud to lead a good, pious, holy aud moral life. Love ami serve God; du not do as I have done, but let your last days bo your best days." Turning to the Sherift he said he desired to say no more, and asked per mission to pray, which was willingly granted, and the inun, about to be launched Into eternity, fell on his knees and began an earnest prayer to God, to whom his soul would so soon be sent. His voice was tremulous aud his words unintelligible, and before he ceased ids voice was not above a whisper. Immediately at the conclusion 01 the prayer ho arose quickly, with Ills eyes clear, and resumed his position under the tieaui. Sheriff Pettey then ad justed the noose, placing the latai knot in position, the prisoner turning his head to one side to facili tate the motions of the otllcer. After this the othcei brushed the hnt aud dust from his clothing and pinioned his arms aud legs. The prisoner at this time gazed on the assembled multitude lor the last time, turning nearly around. At last his eye became riveted on a seemingly sought-for per son, and he smiled once lor an Instant, and then closed his eyes to the light of the world forever, as the Sheriff pulled the black cap down over his head aud tied it. After tills the Sheriff came down, aud, with a hatchet near by, sprung the trap, the floor ing of the scaffold mlllng to the ground. The prisoner lei! two teet aud a half, but the knot on the rope slipped to the back of ills neck, and the fall was not sufficient to break his neck. He was allowed to hang forty-seven minutes before pro. nounccd dead and the penalty or the law paid. Alter hanging firteen minutes he drew his iTmbfl and body up; at twenty-eight minutes his heart was beating quite fast. The scaffold was built In the woods and an oae tree used as one of the posts. The flooring was live feet Irom the ground. The prisoner, at tha time or his execution, had ou black broadcloth pants, black alpaca coat, a brown colored slouch, hat aud a pair of old shoes. The hat and shoes were the aanio he wore when the deed was perpe trated. Alter the body had hung until dead It was de livered to friends by request, as the lollowing let ter shows. There had been rumors that he had sold Ills body to certain physicians. The letter was written by a friend of the deceased at the dictate of the mother and is as follows Mr. N. H. I'kttkt sin?Having learned that you will cxccute my son (Brown Brtwi'D to-day, ami that Ills body will bo In your Charge, I request ol you my child'* remain*, that 1 may have them interred where 1 will.

ELUi.N BltEWER (colored), Wkst Point, Ark., May a, 1873. (Per Luther.) In an Interview with the prisoner in the Jail, tha following facts wore elicited:?He was about twen ty-live years old, and his lornier master was dead; he knew he must die, aud was ready and wllilug to go; he said he had never stolen anything, but acknowledged that he had shot at Charles Hay ley. but didn't kuow whether he had killed him or not} he said that Uayley had threatened his lile, telling lilm that he would kill him some three or lour times before the murder; Haylcy remarked at tha house while ho was there, that there was "too d d much company," and spoke of killing some one. He said he went there to get his hair wrapped. Ho also remarked that he had no Intention or killllng Bajley the night he went there, and when he went to the house he called. "Hallo!" to whicn Uayiey's wife answered, "Is that you, Brown V" He answered, "Ves." L'nclo Charley (one or tha men at the house) came out and Stephens Jerked him back. Ou the day ol the murder he ate dinner at Dave Damon's. He said he dlci not know tha number of the shot In the guu, and would not un dertake to tell, because he did not want to rel1 a lie. He positively affirmed that he was not under, the influence ol liquor when he did the shooting. He said he knew he had but a lew hours to live, and would tell nothing but the truth, asd was ready to die. ills closing remark was tl at he never had thought of killing Bayley before lie went there. With the hanging of Brewer Justice was again vindicated, and one ol the coolest and most self possessed of men passed away to meet his God. H0B8E NOTES.

How different tha Jockey Clubs of this conntry act compared with tha National Associations for the promotion of trotting. The rormer give purses in many Instances without entrance money; but where they take it they gWa It to the second horse in the race, and the hors? that distances the field always gets the whole of the money. Giving large purses ror trotting, and making the owners of the horses contribute tha money u a meau business at best, and the publio begin to see it. A MONEYED MAN <188150.
