Photographt A8 a DRTKcnvB Its
JrDiciAL Application In Italy. We
o blisii to-day a curious and interesting
statement relative to anew and impor
tant use for photography, andwhichmay
eventually form an important! part
criminal investigations. It seems
Sat the eye of a murdered woman
has been magnified and photograph
ed in Florence, Italy, and found
to represent what is regarded as
the profile ot a human face resembling
that of her supposed murderer. It is
true the testimony in favor of the alleged
resemblance is not sufficiently positive
to hang a man, but the opinions of such
distinguished men of art as the great
American sculptor, Hiram Powers, and
others, upon the subject, are such as to
add weight to the supposition that the
likeness is actually that , of .a human
being, and, perhaps, that of her, assassin,
further investigation, it is expected, will
confirm this theory. This idea of pho
tographing the human eye for the pur
pose of ascertaining whether it retained
a certain object is not entirely new.—
During the investigation of the myste
rious Burdell murder in this city the
theory was broached, and some steps
taken to ascertain its correctness, but
we believe nothing came of it. It now
assumes shape ana consistency from this
Italian murder, and our scientific men
are, therefore, j ustifieddn pursuing their
examinations uutil the soundness or fal
aityof the theory be established. In
this age Ot wonders'we should not be at
all surprised at any discoveries in the
world of science. Photographs and da
guerreotypes have already been impor
tant auxiliaries in the detection of crimi
nals, and when the “ tell-tale eye” shall
be submitted to the same process and
found to mirror the features of an object'
like that of the human face, truly the
day will arrive when the pirate’s maxim,
4 ‘ dead men teii no tales,” will cease to
have a meaning. The telegraph, the
railroad, daguerreotypes and photographs
are now the chief aids of criminal detec
tives, and the time may not be tar dis
tant when the Christian world may have
to rejoice upon the suppression of crime,
in a great degree, mainly from the cer
tainty of detection.— N. Y. Herald.
