t»m. — Btewart, the negro, who etruck a fa -
tal blow at Mr. Hatchins, went afterwards to
Bath, where that gentleman's lady resided,
ants accosted her: “Are you Mrs. Hatch
ins ?’’ On receiving an answer in the affirm
ative from the trembling lady, be caught bold
of both her shoulders, and shaking her rude
ly, added: “Well, I killed your husband,
and I am come to aak you to forgive me.
“Doyou forgive me?" “Yes, I do," she
gasped with an agonizing look at her poor
infant, who was near by, within reach ot the
ruffian’s grasp. “You lie!" he replied,
shaking her with more violence than before ;
“go down on your knees and tell it me."
Sinking to the position be ordered, the poor
lady repeated, “I forgive you ; as God is
my judge, Ido ! but save my child, whose
father you have killed.” Half doubtful,
Stewart looked once more at the prostrate
form before him. His fingers clutched, as if
ready to tear their prey ; his features lower
ed with au expression ot savage hate at the
sight ot which the widowed mother's heart
was ready to sink within her ; but, struck
apparently by aome afterthought, he bid her
arise and go away with her child, adding
with a significant look after them as they
left, “If I could believe you did not forgive
me, I would kill you 'both.” Avery short
time alter this occurrence, Stewart was
taken and received the traitor's doom on the
Ccaious Experiment in a Pneumatic Rail
road Tube. —An experiment was recently
tried in the Pneumatic Railroad Tube in Lon
don, as to what would happen in case one of
the cars shonld get stuck tast in the Tube at
any point on its journey. A car was accord
ingly made fast in such a way that it could
not move, and the suction power of the en
gines was tried to the uttermost and with
most extraordinary effect. Although the car
itself could not be moved, yet all the movea
bles it contained in the shape of cushions,
Ac., jumped out of the cat, and were deli
vered at the end of the tube, the. force ex
erted being such as to extract the nails that
kept down the casket.
A Poisoning Cash in Augusta.—The
Chronicle and Sentinel, of the 12tb, says:
"The sentence of Harriet, a colored girl of
thte city, tried for an attempt to poison, hae
been promulgated. She put stryebine in but
ter sad set it upon the table of Mrs. Martha
M. Carter, in whose service she was at the
time. The girl plead guilty to the charge,
wae found guilty aDd sentenced to three
years imprisonment, at such place as the
Commanding General might direct.
Sentence was afterwards modified to im
prisonment for twelve months. The place of
confinement is Fort Pulaski. The crime
was committed about the tenth of August
A Child withThiuce Tongues. —Recently,
the wife of John Cranford, slater, Ewe and
Lamb Close, Dumfries, Scotland, gave birth
to a son, who exhibits the rare, if not unpre
cedented, peculiarity of having three tongues.
We saw the child, and found it to be seem
ingly in excellent health, of full size, and in
other respects well formed. The middle
tongue is the largest of the three; it is round
ed at the top, and is fastened to the lower
pert of the palate in such a way as to prevent
the ehild sucking readily. Each of the
tongues is separated from the other, and
those on each side do not appear to cause
the infant much inconvenience. The curious
malformation does not, to far as appearance
go, result from any disease. The child has
own -seen by several physicians, and they
are of opinion it would be advisable, after he
is a little older, to liberate the middle tongue
from the palate by an operation. Mean
while the Infant is snekied by means of a
