whom we have met in a foreign land, aDd even reserved aDd silent people become communica tive when the conversation turns upon the countries they have seen. I have always found the poets my best trav elling companions. They see many things that are invisible to common eyes. Like Or lando in the forest of Arden, they “hang odes on bawtbornes and elegies ou thistles.” They invest the landscape with a human feeling and cast upon it “The light that never was on sea or land. The consecration and the poet’s dicam.” Even scenes nnlovely in themselves become clothed in beauty when illuminated by the imagination, as faces in themselves not beauti ful become so by the expression of thought and fee ling. This collection of Poems of Places has been made partly for the pleasure of making it, and partly for the pleasure I hope it may give to those who shall read its pages. It is the voice of the poets expressing their delight in the scenes of nature, aud, like the song of birds surrounding the earth with music. For my self, I confess that these poems have an inde scribable charm, as showing how the affections of men have gone forth to their favorite haunts and consecrated them forever. Great is the love of English poets for rural and secluded places. Greater still their 1 jve of rivers. In Drayton’s Poly-Olbion the roar o! rivers is almost deafening; and if more of them do not run through the pages of this work it is from fear of changing it into a mo rass, which, however beautiful with liowers and flags, might be an unsafe footing for the wayfarer. Of one or two names I have been a little doubtful, not finding them in aDy map or gaz etteer. They may be only pseudonymes. But doubtless the poets had some place in mind as they wrote, and the beauty of the versts must be my apology for inserting them. I remember to have read in some book of the law that, “it a man’s laud is not surrounded by any fence, the law encircles it with an imagin ary inclosure, to pass which is to break and en ter hisclose.” In this work I fear the poets will regard me as a great trespasser. I cer tainly have broken and entered their close; but as I have done so with no evil intent, 1 trust <hey will pardon me. The volumes now published will be followed by others of a like character, descriptive of oth er countries, till the “Voyage Bound the World,” sketched by Mr. Montgomery in the poem which stands as prelude, shall be brought to a safe and happy end. Drowning Accident.—Yesterday morning two men whose names were not learned, went out in a small boat at South Lancaster, N. H., and one of them was drowned by the upsetting of the boat.

Keen, after being in the water about two hours, was rescued by help from a coaster at anchor in the harbor. They were about 18 years old and belonged in East Gloucester. Britton’s blocs, San Francisco, was partially destroyed by fire Thursday night. Loss will aggregate $300,000; insured, principally in Easternlcompanies.

The Winslow and the Lawrence Cases. Boston, May 20.—A Washington special to the Boston Jonrnal says the result of the visit to New York of Messrs. Pierrepont and Taft, tbe present and future Attorney Generals, is that Lawrence withdraws his original plea of not guilty and entered a plea of guilty to the iodictment agaiost him for forging custom House certificates of entry, beiog tbe offence under which he was expedited by Great Britain for forgery. As it is nnderstc ad this in dictment was def'ctive, it is not probable that Lawrence will receive a very heavy sentence, and he has already teen admitted to bail. Meanwhile, upwards of thirty other indict ments for smuggling will probably be nol prossed. This will prevent tbe aisclosures dreaded by those influential English exporters who have instigated the refusal to surrender Wioslow, unless assurances were given that be would only be tried for the offence for which he was extradited, and who have complained that tbis was not®being done in Lawrence’s case. They have carried their point, and now Winslow will, in all probability, be surrendered. Tbe Centennial Exhibition. Philadelphia, May 26.—Number of ad missions to tbe Centennial grounds yesterday: Complimentary, 586; exhibitors and attend ants, 6749; cash, 19,821; total, 27,156—showing cash receipts to have teen $9,910 50.

Boston, May 20.—The execution of Thomas W. Piper, formerly sexton of the Warren Ave nue Baptist church iu this city, took place at Charles street jail this morning. Piper passed the night calmly and collected ly, retiring soon after the departure of bis pas tor at about 10 o’clock, and slept until nearly 4 this morning. He breakfasted lightly, and passed the hours intervening before the return of his spiritual advisor, in meditation and prayer, and while in company with the latter, manifested the same wouderful calmness that has characterized his demeanor for the past few days. He met his fate with complete immo bility, betraying no feeling even at the gallows, in any way excepting by an unusual paleness. He died instantly, his neck beiug broken by tbo fall. Tbo ceremonies were conducted with de corum. Arrangement) for Piper’s funeral have not yet beeD definitely decided upoD, but it will be held at the residence of his family at Boston Highlands and will be strictly private. Worcester, May 20.-- The Petarslum mur derer, Samuel J. Frost, was executed this morning at the county jail in this city, at 10.30 o’clock, for the murder of his wife’s brother, Franklin P, Towue. The murder was committid ou Sunday, July 4, 1975, iu the barn ou the farm owned by Towne, and after doing the deed, IfTost went to the house and assisted bis wife, sister of Towue, to get the children, four in number, ready for church. After they had left the bouse he re turned to the baro and buried the body under neath it. The hired men believed that there was something wrong, and that the story of Frost that Towue had gone to California was not comet, for about a week after his disap pearance they noticed that they were closely watched by Frost, and at about the same time they discovered what appeared to he a grave under the barn. They probed the grave with an iron bar which bounded back, aud a terrible odor arose. July 21st others visited the barn cellar aDd made similar probing with the same result, and ou the night of July 22d, Frost was out alluight, and the oxen were heard treading about on the farm during the night. The next day the grave was empty, aud it was subse quently discovered that the body had been bur led in the edge of alswamp ia a shallow grave and swarms of flies and catrion beetles soon gathered there. On the night of the 20th, Frost was again out all night, taking with him a large knife and a pail. During the night he again removed the body of Towne, cut it into pieces, and buried them in a cornfield. Frost was subsequently discovered digging in the cornfield by a colored man, Samuel Uptou, who soon afterwards fouud a piece of sacking protruding from the grave, and not wishing to attract Frost’s at tention he marked the spot, and that night with others, went to the place, but the sacking was gone. While looking for some traces they heard something fall in another part of the field, and going in that direction found por tions of a human body, terribly mangled aud tied in sacks. The sheriff was immediately called and Frost was arrested in the house of Towne, and properly tried and convicted. Frost’s story is that ia a dispute with Towne, which resulted in a scuffle, Towne got him down, and that, iD self-defence, he struck him with a hammer. Frost has stoutly maintained all along that he billed Towne in self-defence, aud has been apparently indifferent to his fate, refusing all counsel or advice, aud until about two weeks has refused to be visited by a clergy man. Sitce that time be has been visited by Bev. C. M. Lamson, but has shown no peni tence aud has been disposed to talk on subject) entirely foreign to the matter which his spiritu al adviser has been trying to impress upon his mind. Pol'tics has been his principal theme and t/UCUiC13 HIS cl 111 li SC 1X1C LI L At an interview tins morning with his coun sel and Eev. Mr. Larason, Frost made the fol lowing statement for putbcation after his death. After speaking of tbe killing of Towne he said: I placed the limbs, as I have affirmed, in the cornfield. I did not know, neither do I now know, who removed them. 1 took them from under the barn with my own hands to the corn field, and never carried them to the swamp, On the night of the 22d of July I did not take the oxen from the barn, nor on any other night, to draw the body to the swamp. I make the same statement as to the whole mat ter, that Mr. Bell had in his book. This refers to Frost’s statement at the trial. I deelare to all men that I die innocent of wilful murder. I die cherishing no feeling of resentment towards any one. I die forgiving all the world foi any wrong I have received. It is hard, but I freely do it. I desire to express my kindest feelings to Geo. Sprague, his deputies, and all the pris on officers. To his counsel he said: “Try and keep track of this matter. I hope, that, in time, and am assured, that it w’ll be chared up. 1 feel that in six months men will say if we had not hung that man we should not do it.” Nevertheless Frost slept well last night aod conversed on indifferent subjects and cheerful ly. So firm was his demeanor that while dressing his attendant remarked to higi, “You’ve got the most nerve of any man I ever saw,” to which Frost replied, “I’m not afraid, I’ve never been afraid to die.” Soon after he remarked, “I’m the happiest man in the prison this morning.” He ate his breakfast of brown bread, milk and cheese, his own selection, with his usual appetite. After breakfast he wrote farewell letters to his children and while doing so appeared somewhat melancholy, but he soon rallied and chatted and laughed with his usual unconcern. At the gallows Frost’s face betokened no emotion. He kept his eye fixed before him, casting no glance at the spectators and none at the gallows till he turned to as cend the s'eps, when he raised his eyes to the beam and rope for an instant, dropping them upon the stairs as he took the first step up ward. As soon as Frost was seated upon the fatal platform Eev. Mr. Lamson offered a short prayer. Immediately at ifs close Sheriff Sprague read the death warrant, rapidly, yet distinctly, and when he had uttered the closing words, “for which this shall be your sufficient warrant”, he added, “I now proceed to do exe cution” and pressed firmly upon the spring releasing the drop. Frost had risen from his chair when the reading of the death warrant was begun, and the deputy behind had fastened the straps around his legs and arms, and. before the leading was finished had shut out the light from him forever by drawing the blick cap over hisjhead. There was not an instant’s delay and less time than five minutes passed between the time the doomed man took his first step upon tbe gallows’ stairs and that in which his body was thrown downward by the drop. Tbe drop fell with hardly an audible sound and the light body of the murderer brought tbe rope to a strong tension, The fij^t thrill of a shudder had not run through the more sensative of the spectators when the body was seen spinning at the. end of the rope almost headless, a fearful tear extend ing over the front of the throat and the blood gushing out iu|streams. Every eye was riveted upon this startling^ and unexpected spectacle as the body turned round, first disclosing and then concealing this gash. The blood forced upwards by the arterial movements spurted tountain-likc upward from one to two feet, the stream falling to the floor in a circle around the hanging body. This circle extended even to the frame work of the gallows which was in many places flecked with blood, gore and the welting life blood pouring from the gaping wound down the front ot the body trickled from his feet, forming a central pool directly The account doubtless seems full of horrors to the reader, but it falls far short of the reali ties of the scene, still the spectators did not waver from the sight. The man was dead. No one could doubt but that his soul declared guilty by mortal judges and jurors was already at the bar of another tribunal. There was a real feeling of relief that there had been no slow coming death, no terrible throes of mus cular agony, and so all watched with bated breath the final scene of the great tragedy. For some two minutes the arterial gushiDgs of blood continued and then the slow dropping of blood from the body continued for a little while before Drs. Woodward and Jewett step ped under the gallows and made their examin ation of the body, a mere formality in this case. The knot of the rope had been placed behind Frost’s left ear almost round to the center of the neck. Frost was a man ol no especial muscular development and though he weighed but 120 pounds the drop was enougo, not only to break his neck, in the commau ac ceptance of the expression, but to sever the spinal column entirely. The muscles and in teguments of the forward part of the neck could not withstand the sudden striam brought upon them and parted, leaving the body hang ing by the integument of the rearportions only. The body was allowed to hang a few minutes after the examination by the doctors, when it was lowered upon a bier and carried from be neath the gallows. The rope was pulled up to ths beam, the spectators at the sheriff’s request withdrew, and in twelve minutes from the time the fifst tread of the execution party the eyes of the executed murderer were closed. LOUISIANA. A Row over a Judgeship. New Orleans, May 2G.—A lively contest is progressing for the judgeship of the Superior District Court. During Gov. Kellogg’s absence Lieut. Gov. Antoine commissioned Judge B. L Lynch, of the Fourth District Court, to be Judge of the Superior District Court, vice Hawkins, deceased. Gov. Kellogg yesterday commissioned General Hugh J. Campbell as Judge of the Supetior Court. This morning Judge Campbell took possession of tho court room aided by a squad of Metropolitan police. Judge Lvnch arrived soon after and called on the sheriff to put him in possession of the court room, which order the sheriff obeved by advice of his counsel, Gov. McEoery. ‘ The written opinion of Attorney General Field was read stating that the removal of Judge Lynch by the Governor would be unconstitutional as well as an outrage upon public order. The sheriff ordered the police away and refused .to recog nize Campbell, who therenpon withdrew. Judge Lynch then opened the court and pro ceeded with business. Campbell will seek his judgeship through the courts. THE INDIANS. A Party of Cincinoatia&s IVtasancrcd. Chicago, May 26.—The Times’ special from Lincoln, Neb., says private advices received there announce that the company which passed through Liucoln, known as Col. Store’s squad, wt^re attacked by the Indians near Custar City a few dayssince, and eleven out of twenty-two killed. They were sous of wealthy Cincinnati ans, and weut on more for fiolic and sight see ing than anything else. The report appears (veil founded. THE BLAINE INVESTIGATION. Mr. Blaine Explains tlie Mysteri ous Package. It Contained maps aud Pamphlets Robinson Recalled. Washington, May 26.—The sub-Judiciary Committee met this afternoon and recalled Asa P. Uobinsou, who testified te had read the testimony of Amos Curry before the committee. Witness never told Curry the package which witness brought to Blaine from Caldwell con tained bonds, or that it was an installment of bonds. Had often talked with Curry in a social way, and might some time have said the pack age may have contained bonds, but never said it really did, for witness never knew what it did contain. Witness did not consider himsell responsible fbr whatever inference Curry may have drawQ from their conversation. He con sidered Carry a man of veracity and good moral character. Curry Repent. Ilia Story. Amos Curry was recalled and repeated his former testimony, that Robinson had told him that the package contained bonds. Witness submitted two telegrams just received from his wife in Arkansas, setting forth that she had read in the papers Robinson’s statement about the story, and saying (hat Robinson did say the package contained bonds, as she was preseut with Curry at the time Robinsou made the statement. Witness said that Robinson and himself were on good aud on intimate terms, and he considered Robinson a man of truth and veracity, never having heard his reputation for veracity called in question before. Mr. Blaine said he nad understood the com mittee had summoned Caldwell from London. He desired to kuow if the committee intend to keep this matter open until Caldwell arrives He thought the committee should report upon this matter now. Mr. Hunton, the chairman, said the matter of summoning Caldwell was in the hands of the full Jud ciary Committee, andlhot of the sub-committee, and he could not state what their purpose was. A Slalenient by Hr. Blaine. Mr. Blaine said il there were no more wit nesses to be heard upon this matter, he would offer himself as a witness. After some dis cussion he was allowed to make a statement confining himself to the package spoken of’ and he was sworn and made the following statement: Air. Chairman—It is entirely true that iu the spring of 1871 (Mr. Robinson I believe gave the specific date from his diary) he delivered to me in the Speaker’s parlor a package. I should thmk that the package was about 18 or 20 inches long and about 4 iuches iu diameter. 1 received his card while sitting in the Speaker’s chair. As soon as it became convenient 1 went out and met him in the Speaker’s parlor. He hauded me the package aud said, “This is a package which Air. Caldwell handed me for you.” The package was done up carelessly in brown paper, the ends bent in and tied, I should say, although I cannot tell precisely at this length of time, in a very loose manner.' I chatted with him a moment about the condi tion of the Fort Smith road, and somewhat about the coal land in the Arkansas Valley. He then wanted to see some member of the House, I have forgotten whom. 1 told him he could have the privilege of the floor, aud he went in with me. As I passed to the chair X threw the bundle down carelessly. It lay there until the House adjourned aud 1 took it down iu the lower private room that I had. It lay there for mooths. It was a package of maps of some description—pamphlets aud some of the descriptical sketches—I mean some of those made by individuals and not published, show iug the caal fields in the Arkansas Valley. It was considered at that time by Caldwell aud others that there would be quite a speculation in buying these lands,and these were alloted off ouuw uuw ujuou euuiu ue got iq one ooay. as the sections were taken alternating it was very hard to get a large tract together, and a very few thousand dollars would buy a considerable quantity of them. I thick the company offer ed them at S3 or S6 an acre. This was sent to me as a prospectus and a general setting forth of the merits and motives of the speculation. I did not give a great deal of attention to it. I had some computations made as to the cost of hauling to the river, how far it would be from the Arkansas river aul how much it would cost by the time it got ty rail to the Mississippi. The result of the whole thing was that I did not embark in it. That is all there was io the whole story of the package. There was noth ing more mysterious iu it than if 1 was going to baud this book to the chairman. It was delivered in a crowd, carried into the house and thrown down without care, and it lay in my room with a miscellaneous lot of papers proba bly for a year, referring to it every now and then. Mr. RobinsoD never delivered me a bond of the Ft. Smith & Little Rock Co., either iu Washington or aoy other place. I desire to make that statement as broad as it can be made ia every shay?. Mr. Chairman, while I am here I desire to repeat uoder oath in relation to this entire §04,000 charge the statement made by me on tbe floor of the House in ail parts without men tal reservation or purpose of evasion as the iron clad oath says.

The action of this inestimable corrective upon the bowels differs widely from that of a drastic purgative, since it is never violent or abrupt, but always gentle and natural, and its effects upon the bladder and kidneys are strengthening as well as mildly stimulative. The healthful impetus which it gives to digestion also renders it a most desirable general tonic. SPECIAL NOTICES. Hemorrhage or Bleeding lrom the Lungs.
