... I The PnrnguayM " nr [Correspondent of the X. T. Times.] Rio Jankiso, Dec. 9, 1866. The last news received herefrom the seat of war in Paraguay is up to the 23d ult., and I from Montevideo to the 29th. The presence of ! the new Brazilian Commander-in-Chief Mar quis do Caxias, had been hailed with the great- j est enthusiasm by all the army and fleet, the Argentines themselves joining the Brazilians in tneir demonstrations of joy. 'The Marquis is on the best of terms with Gen. Mitre. tio engagement has taken place yet between ! the belligerent forces; occasional shots of ar tillery are exchanged between the outposts of | Curupaity and Cuaugar. The Brazilian army, encouraged by the presence of the Marquis, is j fortifying itself more and more every day, and j preparing for a decisive action, which, mougn not iikely to come off before the end of J? ebru ary, promises to be the last one ot this uulor tunatc war, if wo are to judgo from the Mar- . quis’ scientific attainments as a soldier, and from all the precautions he is taking. The re forms he has lntroducedjbave had a iuort salu tary effect on the morale ot the private sol diers and have increased that confidence so necessary in the officers, who now seem to brave all dangers for the glorious termination of this campaign. Immediately alter his arrival at Corrientes the Marquis had an interview with Admiral Tamaudare, the result of which was a depar ture of a flotilla of three gunboats to Itapua, ill the Upper Parana River, to watch the Par aguayans in that quarter, as it was discovered that they have been receiving supplies through the borders of the Province of Rio Grande, in Brazil, and that ot Corrientes, in the Argen tine Republic. How this had not been provid ed against by Tamandare cannot be understood. It is the first important work the fleet will have done for many months. Theer is a tendency now, on the part ot some Buenos Ayres papers, to execute the Admiral for not having gone up the Paraguay River, on the strength of reports made by American and other foreign officers who have been up to Cu rupaity lately, that the river is alive with tor pedoes for seven miles above the fortress; but why did he not pass up a year ago, before i^opez had time to guard himself so well? As tor the river Parana, running along the southern froi* ticr of Paraguay, it has never been in the least obstructed, aud a single gunboat might have blockaded every paso in it without difficulty or danger. Kor the success and brief conclusion of this war Tainamlare should have been recalled long since, for it has been known over a year that, he w ould do nothing because ho could not agree with the other commanders. The Impe rial Government has at last remedied this state of things by appointing Vice-Admiral J. J. Ig nasio to substitute Tamaraude, who is coming back shortly. The new Vice-admiral lelt here on the 6th inst., and will be in charge very soon. Ho was accompanied on board tho transport by a host of friends and admirers, who consider him and Caxias as tho ouly two men capable of saving the country from a dis graceful defeat. The imperial fleet at present in Paraguayan waters is composed of nine iron-clads, twenty gunboats, two sloops-of-war, (oue a steamer carrying 32 guns,) two bomb vessels, and seven other small steamers,"besides a large number of transports, carrying in all 215 guus and 3,70u men. A very formidable force, surely, for a small country like Paraguay to oppose itself to. A Paraguayan deserter who came over to the allied lines a few days ago, declares that Lopez’s army is very much reduced; that his meu are in rags, and on the point of starvation, &c., &c. Iu contradiction to this statement, an American officer writing from on board the Shamkin says: “ Wo are quite struck with tho magnificent appearance of the Paraguayans in eight; they seemed as if they had been fed up tor show, and kept in the best possible trim.— They lookod fresh, well clad, and had the hear ing of defiant men, and able to do their work bravely.” Cqrupaity is now stronger than before the assault oi the 22d of September last, having been greatly fortified by a heavy battery on tho river side. Latest from Crete.—The following is tlie last bulletin of the Cretan Central Committee of Athens which has reached this country.— The news from Canea comes down to the 11th of December, that from the place where the Cretan General Assembly is convened to the 7th of December. On the 20th of November occurred the con test at Kissamos, which lasted for several hours. The Turks fought under the protection of several vessels of war. Many were wound ed on both sides. Nevertheless the revolution is as active as it was at the beginning, in spite of the malignant rumors which have boeu cir culated about it. The Cretans are assembled in force in the district of Cydouia. where arc congregated also the soldiers of the districts of Sell nos and Kissamos add Sphakia. The in surgents are resolutely awaiting the enemy.— Their courage has been greatly raised by the nows of the departure of au English gunboat, which has gone, they are assured, to take on board women and children, and withdraw them from the perils that menace them. Wo have reeeivdd letters from the Cretan camp, and are still under the inliuencc ot the emotions which the bloody catastrophe at Ar kadi awakened in onr hearts. The details which we are every nay learning from those who are arriving! from the cas’teru districts, arc still more aiU.cting. There were about 1(50 persons in the convent, not 510, as it was said at first. The fighting men among them numbered 250. The women end children and old men, who were in the monastery, numbered, therefore, about 700. Sixty .one women and children alone have escaped this trightful disaster, with thirty five men, most of them wounded. Some others h.ol been drawn out from beneath the ruins of the monastery, but they were so mutilated and lame and weak that their limbs refused their office; and tlie Turkish soldiers who escorted them from the Arkadi to Rhithymnos slew them on the way in order to be rid of them. In the afl'air of the Arkadi, the Turks lost more than three thousand men, whose bodies were thrown into ditches which were covered over with images plundered from the monas tery, in default of planks. The bodies of tlie Christians have remained on the plain without the rite of sepulture. From the ruins of the convent arises such a deleterious miasma from tin! bodies putrifying there, that no onecan ap proach it. r ro.n information which we have Teceived here, we learn that Colonel Coroneos (the Commander-in-Chief of the Cretan forces) re gards the situation of things as very sstisfacto ry. The General Assemblage of tue Cretans is in council with their military chiefs; and something advantageous will without doubt re sult from their deliberation. The Assembly was not yet aware of tlie debarkation of Colo nel Vennissarli, who has given to the body of 400 men which he commands the name of the Legion of Flute. It is hoped that the naval vessels of other powers, as well as those of the United States, will follow the example of the English gun boat." The Grand Trunk—The Sherbrooke (C. E.) Gazette arraigns with great severity the man agement ot this railroad. There is unhappily too much truth in its complaints. Au English gentleman, au official of the company, recently in our hearing characterized it in strong hut expressive language as a “beastly road.” The Gazette says: The conuition of this road is such as to call for special notice. Scarcely a day passes in which one or more trains do not run off the track, the state of which is, without exaggera tion, a disgrace to the company. There is no regularity in the arrival of trains, and so much uncertainty exists that travellers can make no calculation of the time when they will arrivo at any given point. Serious apprehensions arc felt by those who arc obliged to travel by the cars, and nothing but absolute necessity com pels people to risk life and limbs by travelling over the road. It has been urged that the Province could well afford the enormous outlay for bui diDg and equipping the road, as the increased facil ities for travelling, and conveyance of freight would more than counterbalance the cost, in promoting the interest of the country; hut of jate the risk of life and limb and the uncer tainty attending both travel and freight, has affo’-Hed anything but satisfaction in patroniz ing the road. au, a week passes but wo hear of trains running into each other, with more or less loss of life, and “nobody to blame”! The only wonder is that a much greater loss of life has lmt resulted from the manifest carelessness exliibited and the totally unsafe state of the track. f'licre surely ought to somo Government interference to protect the lives and property ot parties using the road. Some years since, there was a Government inspector of bridges appointed, but we never could learn that he did his duty, or attended in any way to the state of the road, except perhaps occasionally tiding over the road in a first class ear. if something is not done soon to remedy ex isting evils, the country will be stariled some morning w.th the news of so serious an acci dent and lo.-s of life as will shock the whole community. It is better to prevent the recur rence ot such disasters in season than to la ment them, when it is too late. The Nation.—This very able paper began a new year with its issue for January 3d. The first two numbers, owing’ to some accidental de tention, arc a little lato in reaching us, but arc still welcome. The Nation is the very best of our politico-literary weeklies, the only one in fact among us which in the breadth and sound ness ot its views, in the ability and culture with which its articles are prepared and in its free dom from partizan bias approaches in any de gree the true standard of what such a paper should he. Its support of the Republican cause is all the more valuable from the fact that itisquito a' ove subservience to the Republi can party . All the best principles and highest objects ot the Republicans find in it a power ful advocate, and one which it is for their in terest to sustain and encourage. The publishers offer a novelty in the way of premiums. They propose, one week alter the first day of July 1807 to pay one thousand dol lars to the person who shall, between the pres c.u time aud the date above mentioned, have lorrarjj.l the largest number of new sub scriptions exceeding one hundred; provided, that each subscription shall be for a full year (begiuuiug with any number); and that there shall be at least twenty competitors for the premium. If there bo lower than twenty com petitors, but at least ten, five hundred dollars will be awarded to the most successful The terms of ihc Nation are five dollars per annum, in advance. Address E. L.

Iff Prussia, the most noteworthy political event appears to be the revival, to a certain extent, ot the old conllict betwe en the govern ment and the Lower House of the Landtag or Parliament. Though much reduced in numer ical strength at the last elections in conse quence or the reaction in favor of the govern ment, brought about by the unexpected results of the war, the liberal party has shown by its I course in the Lower House, in the past few weeks, that it has fully recovered from the dis couragement ot last summer, and is determin ed to check, as of old, the traditional inclina tions ot the King’s government to make arbi trary demands upon the national legislature and to exercise arbitrary powers. On Four sev eral occasions has the opposition of the liberal ui embers succeeded in defeating the govern | ment during the consideration of the annual j appropriation bills, which has constituted so far the main business of the present session of the Berlin Parliament. First, they brought about the refusal of an improper demand for an increase of the salaries ot the higher grades Of civil officers. Their argument, that the lower classes of officials, whose pay is wretch edly low in Prussia, should receive the bene fit of legislative liberality, prevailed by a small majority. Next, they made the government yield its position relative to the bill appropri ating one million and a half of Prussian thal ers ($1,100,000) for pecuniary donations to the ! public servants who had most distinguished ; themselves in the late war. The government wanted the House simply to vote the money, I which it proposed to distribute at its pleasure. ! But the liberals insisted on inserting the names of the intended recipients ot the people’s mo ney in the bill, and carried their point after protracted resistance on the part of the gov eminent. • • • * Their third success’tho liberals achieved in having by ihcir efforts an appropriation of 35,000 thalers for the secret police fund strickeu out of the budget of the Minister of the lnteria. * * * The most important liberal triumph consisted in carry ing a resolution by a minority of fourteen, de claring expressly that, though the Uousc would vote, iu view ot the political situation, the appropriations asked for by the War De partment, tliis action was not intended to iui Sly an indirect approbation of tho acts of the Ling and ministry in connection with the re organization of the army, carried out since ldbO, in violation of the Constitution and the laws of the land. The reorganization of the army, it will bo remembered, was inaugurated and accomplished by Kiug William and the Bismarck ministry without tue sanction of Varliament, by a flagrant usurpation of power It formed the main point at issue in the five, years struggle between the government and Parliament, in the course of which the former again and ugain dissolved the latter for steady refusal of constantly increasing opposition ma jorities to vote the additional approprial ions required by the War Department under tho re organization, the last dissolution taking place as late as last February. By the passage of the resolution, the liberals formally announc ed to the government that its late victories have neither wiped out its past record of out rageous, persistent wrong to the popular branch of the national legislature, nor render ed them disposed to lbllow its dictation blindly hereafter, aud saved themselves the self-stnlti fication iu which an unconditional voting of appropriations that they had so consistently re fused in the past would have inevitably involv ed them. The Atlantic Monthly for February opens with the second part of Holmes’s “Guardian Angel." The story gets under weigh slowly, the interest' of the present chapters being found mainly in the carefully elaborated por trait of the old Master of Arts, Byles Grid ley, which is presented in sharp contrast with that of the able young schemer, Murray Bradshaw. “Characteristics of the Elizabethan Litera ture,” is a brief but brilliant and discriminat ing essay from Mr. Edwiu P. Whipple, the first of a series on English Literature which that vigorous and polished writer is to con tribute during the year. “George Bedilliou’s Knight," is the beginning of a story by Mrs. Davis, author of “Life in the Iron Mills,” which exhibits thus far some of tho best traits of that writer, her artistic skill and keen in sight into character, without the coarse hard ness of handling, and the morbid fondness for mental disease which often make her works repulsive. Mr. C. D. Shanly, who seems to have had opportunities lor knowing the Ins and outs of that subject, contributes an enter taining article on the trials and difficulties in cident to “Ccfmic Journalism.” “Katharine Morno” is continued, and is as sentimentally didactic and as affected as evor. Then comes “A Drift-Wood Fire,” another of Mr. Higgin son’s delightful “Out Door Papers,” in which fine thoughts and tender, graceful fancies fol low each other os rapidly as the waves upon the beach over which in imagination he leads us. “How Mr. Frye would have preached it,” by Rev. E. E. Hale, is a very striking record of an experience to which many a man’s con science might furnish a parallel, but our satis faction in reading it is seriously marred by the feeling that no man who had passed through such an experience ever could, or indeed ever should, relate it to such an audience. Thu ex posure revolt! us, as a violation of that mental modesty which it is as much incumbent upon us to observe as personal modesty itself. Conspicuous among tho attractions of this number of the Atlantic will be the paper by Professor Agassiz on “The Glacial Phenome na of Maine,” which is at once valuable for its new scientific facts, and interesting from its local descriptions. An extract from this arti cle will be found on the fourth page of to-day’s issue. Mr. Win. Howells contributes under tho title of “Forza Maggiore,” a lively reminiscence of his experience of Italian travel; and anoth er well-known writer furnishes some interest ing “Recollections” of John Vanderlyn, the ar tist. The only political paper in the number is that of Mazzini on “The Republican Alliance,” a considerable portion of which we give else where. “The Stand-Point of the Boarding House,” and the usual reviews and literary no tices complete the list of prore articles. Of the poetical contributions “Elizabeth’s Chamber” strikes us as the finest in teeling and most sub tle in conception; “Mona,” by Alice Cary, printed on our fourth page, is tender and me lodious; “The Guerdon” by Aldrich presents in pleasing garb an old and favorite story, and Trowbridge’s “Real Estate,” contains the sub stance of many homilies. Arrival of the North American. The steamship North American, Capt. Kerr, from Liverpool 10th and Londonderry Uth, ar rived at this port at 9 o'clock last evening, bringing 1C cabin and 91 steerage passengers, and a large cargo. We are indebted to Mr. McNaughton, Purser of the steamer, for late papers. The North American is one of the pioneers of this line. She has had new boilers put into her, and this is her first trip with them. She proves now, as she did originally, to he the swiftest steamer of the line, having made the quickest trip of any of them. Details of the effects of the disastrous gales continuo to he published. The damage was great, both on land and water, including many wrecks and loss of life. i;he London TitneB remarks that the move ment for impeachment of President Johnson is evidence of a revolution through which the Union is passing. It is a hint of what may come after. The fate of Johnson is a trifle compared with the safeguards of all personal liberty and individual freedom, which are thus subjected to tlie unchecked caprice of a fluctu ating majority. PRUSSIA. Baron Von Werthcrn, hitherto Prussian En voy at Madrid, is spoken of as tho future rep resentative of Prussia at the Saxon Court. The party of progress intend to bring for ward a hill in the Chamber of Deputies, de manding that members of the North German Parliament should receive salary,and their travelling expenses should be paid them. The North Gorman Parliament may he ex pected to meet in twelve days alter the termin ation of the elections—or about the 24th of February. Reports were in circulation that the Duke of Saxe Coburg had resolved to abdicate his sov ereign lights in favor ol Prussia. ., FRANCE. Rumors nt modification in the Cabinet were again current, and M. Kouher was named as likely to withdraw. It was also asserted that the Council el State evinced a decided inten tion to oppose the new Army scheme. ITALY. Rumors had been current that the question between Italy and Turkey in regard to the firing into an Italian steamer by a Turkish frigate, had been arranged; but the Opiniouc contradicts it, and says Italy will insist upon reparation from Turkey in the matter. The political emigrants at Bologna had large ly signed an address which virtually calls for the overthrow of the Hope. They demand that the Governors of the city of Rome shall cease to be the worst in Europe; that foreign troops in Papal pay shall be disbanded; that men confined in prison for supposed ott'er.ees | against religion shall ba released, and that the dominion of the priests shall be shaken off— The address declares that liberty is oniy to .be won by bloodshed.

Horse Railrond Meeting# The annual meeting of the Portland Rail road Company took place yesterday afternoon in the Common Council Room, and was quite fully attended. The report of M. G. Palmer, Treasurer, shows the company to be in a pros perous condition, and the stockholders express ed themselves satisfied with the result. The whole earnings of the road for the year is $54,986.80. Expenses for the same time $42. 607.38. Leaving a net balance of $12,319.48, which, with the balance from last year, more than pays the floating debt. The Superintendent’s report shows the num ber of horses to be ninety-nine, an increase of eight since last year. The cars and other equipments remain about tbc same. He also shows that Congress Street is more profitable than Spring Street. Total number oi miles run (if all done by one pair of horses) 192,804. Total number of passengers carried by the city cars 782,829; by Westbrook lino 225,665; total 1,008,494; a gain of nearly 100,000 over the last year. The subject of extending the track to Libby’s Corner was quite fully discussed. Mr. Palmer, who had given much thought to the subject, expressed his belief that it would be advanta geous to the company, but at the same time thought that the stockholders had not exam ined the subject enough to come to his conclu sion, and while he would not urge them to adopt his views, lie could but say that in his opinion it would add largely to the profits of the company. The stockholder? made choice of E. A. Nor ton, W. L. Southard, ,T. N. Winslow, Elieu^ Corey ami John E. Palmer as Directors for the ensuing year, all Directors of the old board excepting John F. Palmer, elected in place of Mayor Stevens, who resigned when elected Mayor. Additional Conli'i ballons. ladies’ executive belief committee.

Mbs. E. U. Bacon. Received by Ladies’ Executive Committee for the benefit of the sufferers,from the Ladies Society of Buxton ami Hollis, fifty-sevou new readymade garments; cotton cloth valued at $21; money, $13.50. We would make a special acknowledgment to the “Ladies Portland Relief Society of Buf falo, N. Y.” and to the gentleman of that city, who so constantly aided them in their efforts to obtain supplies for our sufferers. Their Society was formed immediately upon hearing of the calamity that had befallen our beautiful city, and their labors did not cease until our own Relief Society had closed its room. Their efforts were more remarkable being so remote and unconnected by business interestSj with not more than twenty residents of the city, as we were informed, natives of Maine, anil only one or two from Poitland.— One of the latter was assisted, when a hoy and in the commencement of his business life’, by a gentleman of this city, who cannot number this instance as a solitary beneficence, and who now lias llie gratification to see his sympathy and kindness gratefully returned by the suc cessful merchant, in money ami labor to the city of his birth. 1 copy from the Buffalo Commercial Adver tiser a. final report of “The Ladies’ Portland Relief Association;” “The cash receipts have been $406.17, which has been expended here under the advice of the Ladies’ Committee in Portland, in purchasing warm shawls and clothing. There have been forwarded to Portland nine teen boxes, containing new and second band clothing, shawls, shoes, bedding, tin-ware, etc., ranging in value from $75 to $225 each. All reached their destination in good order, and tbeir receipt has been promptly acknowledged. The officers feel themselves under the great est obligations m the Express Companies for their great libflility in forwarding all boxes free of charge. Their thanks are also due to Breed, Butler & Co., and Flint, Kent, and Stone, for receiving and packing donations, to C. F. T.

Another snow storm set in early Monday morning which continued throughout the day, though not with so violent a wind as the storm of Thursday. A largo quautity of snow has fallen which makes it unpleasant h^th for pe destrians and horses. Tho railroads of course suffered from the storm. The Portlaud & ltochester ran trips both ways in the forenoon. The train lrom Augusta, on the Portland & Kennebec road> was not delayed half an hour. The trains from Montreal and Bangor wero delayed over three hours, and did not arrive here until near six o’clock. The train for Boston that left this city at 8.45 A. M, was one hour behind time in roacliing the South Berwick Junction. The train that left Boston for this city at 7.30 A. M., did not arrive here until about six o’clock in the even ing. No trains either way were run on this road in the afternoon. The regular trains for Montreal and Bangor left about the usual time yesterday afternoon. The storm ceased about sunset. Cumberland National Bank.—The annu al meeting of the stockholders of this Bank was held Monday afternoon, and the following Board of Direotors was elected: Wm.

Murder of Two Aged Women near Auburn. Arrest of a Suspected Man. [From the Lew iston Journal of Monday.) Saturday evening the lifeless and frozen bod ies of Mrs. Susannah Kinsley, a widow of .Ins tin Kinsley, aged about sixty-four years, and of Miss Polly Caswell, a maiden lady aged about sixty-seven years, were found horribly mangled, in the house owned by Mrs. K. and occupied by both, about half a mile this side of West Auburn, on the road leading from that place to this city, and about four miles from here. The condition of the bodies at once showed that a most shocking murder had been committed, all the circumstances of which known at the present writing, are as follows: Saturday night about dusk Mr. Isaac Lil.bey, a shoemaker, living the third house this side of Widow Kinsley's [perhaps the distance of a quarter of a mile,) went to her house for the purpose oi obtaining some suoes which she anu Miss Caswell had been binding or stitching.— He noticed that no track had been made to the door since the storm of Thursday, hut thought nothiug of this nor of the fact that the two doors on the front side of the house were fastened, as the inmates were advanced iujycars and lived alone, die went to the shed door and found that unhasped but fastened by a prop loaning against it from the inside. This led him to notice that there was no smoke is suing from the chimney, aud being somewhat startled, lie proceeded to the nearest neighbor’s. Mr. Otis Keith, about sixty or one hundred rods distant, and requested him to go with him to the Widow Kinsley’s. Mr. Libliey and Mr. Keith went back to the liqusc of Widow Kinsley, aud passed around the buildings to the rear where they found the hack door open, and snow blowcd into the small entry. The nloor leading directly from the entry into a small cook-room perhaps eight feel square, as well as another leading from the cook-room into the sitting-room, were shut hut not fastened. Opening both dours aud looking around by the dim light of the moon, they dis covered ajwhite object on the floor—so sugges tive of some horrible tragedy that both gentle men at once beat a hasty retreat and proceeded to a neighbor’s to obtain a lantern and assist ance. Having procured both, they returned to the house and there discovered a scene which made the blood almost freeze in their veins. On the floor, lying across the door-stool of an open door leading into a small entry separating tho sitting-room from a sleeping apartment, was stretched tho lifeless body of Polly Cas well—her head and shoulders in the entry aud her body and lower limbs in the sitting-room. The body was partially covered with a night dress, and on proceeding to take hold of it, it was iound frozen stiffly, and giving evidence of liaving been in that condition lor several days. A broken cliair, covered with blood, lay near, affording evidence in itself that it had been used in aiding in tho murder of Miss O. Hardly had this terrible scene been realized before another still more terrible met tlieir gaze, in the bed in a small bed-room, about ten feet square, adjoining the sitting-room aud connect ed with it by a door,—which was open—was the lifeless and ghastly body of the willow Kinsley, also frozen still', aud lying with her uiglit clothes on, in a pool ol congealed blood. The bed clothes were matted with blood, the quilt aud leather tick torn, aud feathers were scattered abont, and everything indicated that a terrible struggle for life bail there taken place, Mrs. Kinsley being a large and powerful woman. The body of Mrs. Kinsley was horribly cut and mangled. Tho jugular vein was severed by a deep gash on the side of the throat. There were also cuts on the left jaw boyie and on the left forehead, a gasli nearly six inches inlength ou the left leg, aud severe bruises on the leit shoulder, not to mention many minor cuts and bruises. The evidence was conclusive that a rape had been committed or attempted. The immediate cause of her death was the severing of the jugular vien. Appearances indicate that the murderer or murderers had attacked Widow K. in her bed, trom which she had not arisen. Miss Caswell had received Revere blows on lier bead and lace (probably by the chair), her skull was fractured, her leit wrist broken, her wrist and left shoulder bruised. There was also a bruise over her right eye, a cut on her left arm above the elbow, and a cut on the left knuckles. The immediate cause of her death was probably the fracture of the skull, although it is possible thatffnis might only have produc ed insensibility and that freezing did the rest. Blood was found by the side of the stove in the sitting room near the mantel-piece, indi cating tlr.it Miss C. had been attacked there lirst, and pursued towards the door to the entry opening into the room, where she was stricken down. The supposition is that Miss C., who slept in a room in another part of the house, was awakened by the noise of the struggle in Widow Kinsley’s room, and arose and came out into the sittiug-rooiu, and was reaching to the mantel-piece for a lamp and a match to light it, when she was struck by the villain (who probably had completed his work with Mrs. K.) with a chair. Miss C. not being ren dered senseless by the blow, probably attempt ed to flee to her room, the villain following, and beating and cutting her until she fell in the doorway. Her wrist was undoubtedly broken in attempting to ward off the blows of the cliair' I lu re were uo indications that the house or any of the bureaus, draws, or trunks had been examined, or that anything had been removed. The murderer hnu left nothing behind which had been used by him in the commission ot the crime except the broken chair. Although his clothes must have been more or less covered with blood from tile struggle with Mrs. Kins ley, yet uo indications of anything removed or left behind could he discovered. Neither was there the least indication that plunder was the object of the villain. A coroner’s juiy, which was summoned on Saturday night, examined the bodies and wounds, arriving at tiie conclusion that a rape had been committed on the body of Mrs. Kins ley. All the tacts which we have narrated, auil others of which we will speak hereafter, were elicited. The investigations of the jury ex tended into Sunday forenoon, and their ver dict, of course, could only be that the deceased were murdered by some person or persons un known. Wednesday evening a neighbor called at the house and spent a portion ot the evening there, leaving Mrs. Kinsley and Miss Caswell in their usual health and spirits. A third member of the family (Miss Kinsley), a daughter of Wid ow K., was providentially absent at Auburn, and thus her lifo was saved. These circumstances point very clearly to some time Wedndsday night or early Thurs day morning, as the time when the murder was committed. Thursday the storm raged, and scarcely a person passed along the road during the day, and Friday the wind blew and the roads were blockaded; and it was not until Saturday that any one would have been likely to notice the house. Ill investigating as to who committed the deed, the only circumstances of significance are these: About half-past two o’clock Thurs day morning the family of Isaac Libby, who lmj# in the third house below Widow Kins ley’s, as we have already stated, were awaken ed by a noise of some one trying to get in at the window’ of their sloeping room. Mr. Libby arose, went to the window, and there saw a man. Mr. L. immediately asked him what he wanted? “ I want to go in and warm me,” he replied. Mr. L. being very suspicious of the appearance.of tho man, responded, “I can’t let you in; go away.” Upon this the strange visitor went around to another window, and made an attempt to raise it, and soon after went away. Sunday, one Nathaniel Johnson, of North Yarmouth, who has been a laborer in this vicin ity for some time, was arrested by Constable lin ker, at Mr. Kicker’s near the Poor Farm in Auburn,-.fl suspicion of being the murderer. Johnson was at once turned over to the hands of officer Littlefield, who brought him to Au burn Jail Sunday afternoon where lie is now confined. Johnson is a heavy man, about 3oor 40 years of age, wears a long frock and a kos sutli hat. He has not in years past sustained a good reputation, having been before the Police Court for drunkenness, and having served a season in jail ior larceny. • He has driven a team for various parties in Auburn, and has been frequently on the streets here.
