A Night on the River St. Lawrence.
(A terrible adventure).
Short-sighlted man with all li-s boal-i,l skill,
Lives oa thIe dim uncertainty of fate ;
Time's future, depths with life's eventful ill
Are dark indeed for him to penetr.ite
Yet, mortals live on speculative dreams,
And from the future half their pleasures
Ioi row ;
To-day they frame their life-concerted
Themselves and all may lie a wreck to-
'If nature had given man a prospective
faculty capable of observing the various
'incidents and events of his life, many,
very many, even of the most reckless and
daring, would fall beneath the over-
whelming anticipation of the reality.
Alan, it is said, is born to trouble ; his
life is a continuous series of hopes and
disappointments, that rise and fall like
the waves of the ocean ; but all are not
equal sufferers. Some are wafted along
without even reefing a sail; others are.
tempest tossed, and forever beaten by
the waves of adversity, whilst many are
fatally overwhelmed.
When I consider the events of my
own life I am ready to exclaim with the
Psalmist yea, I have been sorely afflic-
ted" ; but the most unfortunate and ap-
paling event of my life, and one from
which in remembrance I still shrink
with horror, is, th;e subject of the follow-
ing, eintitl.d "A N i ON THE RIVER ST.
E rly in the morning of a cold, clear
winter-day in the month of Febr:uarv,
several years ago, I started for Montreal,
,j a. '._l,.. --..-t-h ___.- .- .- 1.-. .. ... ..-_ J
sleigh, a distance of about 40 inile- frirn,
where I resided at that time. The morn-
ing indicated favorable weather; but
ere many hours had elapsed the sky be-
gan to assume an angry and foreboding i
aspect. By the time I had got through
with my business in the city, that after-
noon, a flurry of snow had fallen, and,
masses of clouds were mustering in for-'
midable array, threatening an immedi-
ate storm. I hesitated whether to re-
main or recross the river, but apprehend-
ing a storm, and having previously ex-
perienced the necessity of waiting some
days in town on account of the danger of
crossing during a storm, I at length de-
cided upon re-crossing the ice to La-
Tortue, distant nine miles, and there re-
main over night. Before I had gone
mid-way over the river I began to expe-
rience the difficulty and danger of my
position. The shades of night were
gathering around, made darker by the
impending clouds, and the snow was be-
ginning to descend rapidly. A cold
breeze was sweeping over the icy sur-
face, and driving the snow in murmur-
ing eddies around me. It was difficult
to keep on the track as a late thaw had
melted the greater portion of the snow.
I stopt my horses frequently to ascer-
tain my position, and then drove onward,
feeling assured that all was right. Hav-
ing calculated the distance travelled, in
ratio, with time and speed, I flatter-
ed myself with the certainty of being
near the opposite shore. I drove on-
but at length discovering no land-marks,
became apprehensive. I again halted,
and could not discern any reliable signs
of a track or of the shore. I.listened,
and heard nothing but the solitary drift.
I began to suspect that I had gone too
far westward, and a tremor of forebod-
ing fear crept over my heart. At that
moment I caught the glimpse of a light,
apparently that of a lamp on shore.
ExultinglyI ur.'ed my horses forward in
the direction, assured that danger and
difficulty were past.
1 had driven only a short distance
when a crashing of the ice brought my
horses to a sudden halt; one of them,
had broken through the ice. I sprang
forward to detach the other :-'twas but
a moment's work-but in the act of re-
moving it the ice under us gave way, and
we fell into the fearful chasm. Instinct-
ively I threw one arm across the neck of
the poor struggling animal, and with the
ether upon, Lhe margin of the ice,
managed to escape the danger of being
trampled under, or swept away by the
When I now consider my perilous
position at that moment-suspended ,as
it were, over the yawning chasm,-up-
on the very confines of eternity.-a
moment twixt life and death, the -.very
remembrance of such, thrills my hart

persevered, and after a laborious task of
two hours, returned to my starting point
by the opposite direction, which proved
the place to be only a solitary isle.
I again entered tlie house alluded to.
Apparently it had been ouce .a good
structure. One half of the floor was
gone, leaving a dark chasm beneath.
No feature of the interior appeared so
attractive and consoling as the hearuth.
It seemed worthy of a complimentary
address. I sought shelter from the cold
within its nook, among the cinders,
which indicated fire at no distant period.
I crawl'd upon the dingy hearth ;
Almost of everp hope bereft, a.
The ashes fiom their place I stir'd
But not the slightest spark was left.
My novel situation afforded me but
little comfort. The vitality of my sys-
tem demanded continued action to
which my restless spirit, gave iluinedi:
ate response. I had previously seen the
island from a distance, and knew in what
direction La Tortue lay from it.
Thither I resolved to direct my foot-
steps. The snow by this time had ceas-
ed falling, occasioned by the intensity
of the cold, which at the time was at the
least 15 degrees below zero. The cold
west wind was sweeping the drift in
fearful whirl about me :--nevertheless,
my determination impelled me to go,
choosing rather to die in action than
freeze up in hopeless stagnation.
From the lower part of the island I
started on my intended route-to be
guided by the direction of the wind.
The ice assumed a favorable aspect,,
and flattered my hopes with the feelings
of a fortunate result. But, alas! the
consequence of every effort that night
was laden with disappointment. Had I
possessed any faith in Mythology I
would have assu redlly bElieved in havi nc-

9 My face and hands were suffering
from the cold ; but I rubbed them with
SHOW to prevent them being frozen, a
process to which during the night I had
frequently resorted. A cold preventive
And having uaroused'.Any energies into
action. I hurried Iback to the old build-
ing. I saw then the possibility of
realizing my anticipations. Ir was folly
to attempt further. My only alternative
was to remain until morning, and use
every a-ailable means to prevent the
cold froW making a further inroad. Hun-
ger and exhaudiion were pressing heavi-
ly upon me ; so nitmchi so, that I doubted
the possibility of sustaining vital energy
much longer I j The spirit was willing'
though the flesh jwas weak; and I
strove to console my mind with the hope
that God who had rescued me from
previous danger, would continue lHis
beneficient providence towards me.
For several minutes I suspended mo-
tion to regain strength; but the cold
denied me a prolonged indulgence.
Life, when deprived of external remedy
and nourishment, feeds upon its own
elements; and motion alone is the all
important method of supplying it with
heat. However, I wasn't inclined to re,
sume such means, until I had tried
The Indian method of fire-making
suggested itself. Having procured a
couple of dry sticks I began to rub them
violently together, and continued the
operation with hopeful dexterity until I
had exhausted the power of every mus-
cle, but after all produced not a single
spark of fire. My next attempt was
with harder material.
Having torn off a part of my vest lin-
ing and beaten it into tinder I tried

grasped the man.,; ;nd brought every

and with some ,lifdi1nty 4- .psc;p)e could do no more i-J.l ,tain called
for aid. Poor brute! it struggled eager-
ly for life ; but its powerful nerves soon
relaxed, and the strong current swept
it underneath the ':-old ice.
-All had gone! disa.lieared forever,
and the dark waters sent up a death-like
murmer from that dismal yawning hole.
The disagreeableness of my condition
impelled me to seek for shore im-
intediately. I was completely bewilder-
ed. I knew not in what direction to go ;
however, I started forward with all pos-
sible speed; and having gone but a
short distance again discovered a light,
to which I -iirected my course.
My n arnes to shore became certain.
I beheld through the drift ,a dark streak,
which seemed to be a thicket of ever-
greens along the bank, and fancied I
heard the wind distinctly murmuring
among the boughs. I hurried forward,
and when distant only a few yards a
hoarse gurgle as of water, startled me,
and brought me to a balt..
I drew back with horror. To my as-
tonishment the trees were converted in-
to an expanse of water; and the mur-
muring of the boughs were only the
moaning of the rapids.
Never do I remember of being so de-
ceived in perception as then, I. could
scarcely give credence to the reality.
The prospect appeared so much like a
forest of shrubbery, and the muffled
voice of the waters, mingled with the
murmuring of the drift, initatzd the
bi-hing of the eSvergreen so accurately,
as wou.l have b:aitHd the practised ear'

-T[the l T, l~~t~eferie-TB---but. hlutItett in
re~,'yIving what to d,. To turi back
seemed a hopeless retreat. I hen walk-
ed some distance alone the water's edge,
expecting to find access to shore around
it; and partly succeeded when I dis-
covered my position to Ibe- exceedingly
hazardous. Open spaces became visible
around me; yea, the very waters, as
graves, appeared to be -opening their
icy jaws, and over them a thousand
spirits seemed to tlufter on aqueous
wings. Ridges of ice like marble mon-
uments upon which the finger of Boreas
had written his ghostly epitaphs, were
scattered around me as formidable bar-
riers; yet, every ol.-,tacle had only a
tendency to excite my energy the more,
I soon ii covered that my daring at-
tempts were unaailalble ; and the only
alternative was to ret urn and keep down
stream, for in reality I found myself to
be bordering upon the LACHINE RAPIDS.
I could hear their muffled sounds. I
had no fear. I was resolute: yes, mad-
ly desperate, but not hopd(ess.
Wrap't in the horrors of nmy fate,
Mlid the rude storm'and frozen waste
Trusting to find some outlet path,
Those dreary wilds alone I paced.
I ope struggled with the cheerless gloom,
And only shone to in1ek miy woe;
It seetn'd as if I sought my tomb
Mid shoals of ice aiwl driftt-d snow.
Bewilder'd-loh,4-'t wi t life and death,
Strange fancie.- revel'. in my brain ;
And pausing oft with stitk-,l breath,
I gazed, ihlen I.oped, aud strove again.
The attempt of .~Jting a return
route was attended wit h as great danger
and difficulty. I wai completely invol-
ved in a labyrinth from which I could
see no way of extricating myself. My
trousers to the knees were coated with
ice, whiihi rendered motion difficult ; and
my hands were baie, having lost my
mittswhilst.:tteiaptiing to save my horse ;
however. I used every available means to
supply heat, and sustain that resolute
spirit, which under less fearful circum-
stances would have fallen prostrate.
Miserable as were my feelings of mind
and body I'felt a thrill of joy within my
bosom as I sept at length upon the
bank of what I supposed to be th6 main-
Distant a few rods stood what appear-
ed to be a dwelling-house, I hastened to-
wards it, assured that all my troubles of
the night had gone ; but, alas I was a-
gain deceived. No pl)ers,.'n was there.
The snow lay in d.r'ifted columns upon
the floor, and the cold winds whitled
through the broken windows. and fell
with melancholy murmur upon the ear.

pa:rently sent his FATES to curse me like
Balaam and torture me with mockery.
I had gone but a short distance, when
an open space, several feet wide, and ap-
parently extending around the point of
the island intercepted my course. The
water was rushing down naith tremen-
dous fury. In opposite d'ect.ions I tra-
velled for (some distance, still finding
an open barrier. T6 jump over it would
be no easy task, and I dreaded the awful
result of slipping in the attempt; never-
theless, I flattered m.ivelf of being able
to spring over it. A 'school-boy when
mastered in a sfauding leaf, retreats a
little to increase power by a short run.
I had recourse to the same means, but
courage failed as I approached the fear-
ful barrier. I then returned to the house
to try to get a plank to throw across the
open, space; but did not succeed as
everything appeared to be immovable
fixtures. At this moment, whilst deli-
berating upon what to do, my ears were,
attracted by the barks of a dog. from the
Lachine side of the river. The tones
sounded familiar, and tho' distant, con-
veyed friendly and inciting encourag-
ment. Believing the interiLiediate chan-
nel to be narrow and the ice passable I
flattered myself with the, certainty of
securing comfort ere long, and of avoid-
ing the inevitable consequence of being
frozen to death were I to be exposed for
many hours longer.
Elated with the prospect of success I
started thither-wards, and hadl to pass
over a small intervening island. A few
specimens of scraggy shrubbery were
scattered over it; but it seemed to be a
luxuriant nursery of the Burdock, if I
may infer from the almost impenetrable
masses of those withered plants throughL
which I had to force my way.
M y clothes became totally coated with
burs, so much so, as to resemble gar-
ments of the coarser fur. I then started
forward upon the ice, the drift rising
fearfully before me; and had only gone
but a short distance when I discovered
myself to be again amongst the icy
quagmires, and was again prevented
from plunging into one of them. I saw
that danger was dorgi-m me at evt-rv-
step and death opening his jaws before
Good God! what was I to do ?-
Oh the anguish of defeated lope : !!
My very soul began to reel with over-
wheliing grief. My iiidoljitable spirit
for the first time sank within me and my
very heart, as it were, burst into tears.
Overcome with emotion I threw my-
self upl,. the ice, and from muy ver soul
wished to God that I might die.
Where was all by boasted indlepen-
dence then ?
Where, my cherished hopes and the"
fabrics offuturity ?-- alas gce gone!
For several minutes I liy there, the
tearsi freezing upon my eyehidi, as they'
issued out; but they gave me great re-
lief ; a little snow which I ate, also reviv-
ed me conisider.ably.

Along the wild amlI .-,eary mh,.i

Ignorant of where I was I determined
to test tie' locality, and reach some in-
babiied dwelling. The snow was ex-
ecedingly deep along the shore; still I

was also estinue[ to be a wretched fal-
ure. The sparks flewvividly around me ;
but like all my previous hopes, were too.
volatile to be realized, and mietear-like
flashed only in mockery of my presump-
tion. My only alternative then to e.cite
heat was to resume natural mi.ans. By
a broken stairway I found access to the
garret, the most coin portable part of the
house, and there 'like a sentinel of the
night, I paced away the dreary hours.
In these moments a thousand fancies
flasdi d over my soul. I thought of poor
Silkirk upon the Island of Juan Fernan-
dez. The very thought of my condition
rendered me despicable to myself. Ex-
hausted as I was I succeeded in sustain-
ing action till the early dawn of the
morning ; but human nature could with-
stand it no, longer, and from real ex-
haustion I sank upon the floor. My
st-ength was completely gone, but I an-
ticipated a short rest to be of service for
further action.
One of the chief symptoms of being
overpowered by the cold is a predisposi-
tion to drowsiness. Sleep steals slyly
over the fancy of the storm-benighted
traveler, consequently, lie sinks upon the
couch of death, and slips uiinconsciously
from the would.
Aware of this danger. particularly at
that moment, I endeavored to keep
awake; but our propensities become ob-
stinate when t.antalized, and retaliate
powerfully when incensedI. However, r
fell asleep, rind for one short period for-
got my sorrow. I dreamed that I had
warnldere(t home, and was again in tLih
circle of domestic happiness as if noth-
ing had happened to me.
As change the actor's tragic scene
To some terrific form iat. It.
So changed this h fe-duomest.iet dream
To tlt cold tra'.gic of the past.
On awakening I felt as comfortable as
if lying upon a feathered couch. Fur a
moment I was, bewildered by inagin a-
tion, but soon recognized the reality of
my position. The welcome rays of the
appearin- su11 were entering the chain-
ber, and cl-he-rfully soliciting me, as it
were, to depart. I was lying upon my
back, my baniud folded acn-,ss my breast.
I then made an effort to move, but fail-
ed to do so. INot a part of my body
would act submissively' to my will. In a
word, I was completely paralvyzd ; soul
and body setnined to lbe disunited, and
powerless tfo re-act. I made several des-
perate internal efforts to start mution,
but my whole hody appeared to be
d.1-ad, aInd every mem,1be.r refused to per-
forn it, offi-e. I gazed upon the objets
within view; saw in reality it was my
VERY SELF, but euterta ine.e doubts as t,'

worthy of universal respect, and an
affecti,,n which has ,:-epl and Iiliely

Even although necessarily sustaining
that true diinit.y of character and

A copy of these now celebrated let-

form. Their origin is knov,-n to most
of our readers. During last summer

Estal',shliment, the Clergy Bill, the
Burials question, etc. Pamphlets
were distrilhuted on the same subjects,
D', _linig matters lively enough, though
the party attacked showed no sign of
indignation. At length a series of ar-
ticles aitppeared in the GAzE rIr,: chal-
lenging the writers referred to, and
denouncing them in no measured
terms. These were immediately re-
plied' to ini the C,: L' NIsr, over the sig-
natu re "Nouoifi :,ru i..t." Conuje-.tures

opinioni settled down generally to.the
conviction that the clihampioi s we,' ,

The i ' 'iereased as this convic-
tion deepeneld, and as the writers
warmed to their work. Had there
l:eeu any b:,etting, the odds would
have gone heavily with the G.AZF.ITE
w' iter, for his previous history as a
controversialist gave him an immense
Advantage. It was soon .;een, howev-
er, that it was not to be a one-sided
discussion. At first there sever-

al little disputants disposed to put in
their word; but by common consent

For 1the New Era.
MR. EDITOR.-E .eCItly I noticed in the
GAZETTE, a letter, the auther of which,
advises merchants and others to import
corn in barrels instead of bags, so that
planters might have a good supply of
them for crop 'season. The 'suggestion
is a very go,-Od one, as it frequently hap-
pens that barrels are short in number
when more specially required; and bags
are articles that are not serviceable to
plhnters. Further than this, I hold the
opinion that the country would be richer,
and planters better served if they would
grow more corn. This could be easily,
done, after the winter crop is removed
from the fields ; and would pay better
than aoi; thing else that might be plant-
ed as a summer crop. Take only the
land planted in potatoes, and sow it in
corn, 1nd1 l-t us see what would likely
be the reult. Not fewer than 5000 bar-,
rels of potatoes are planted this season ;
and corn if planted and ~nltiv ith prop-
lY would give at thie .uer us-e 5 lu'
'-roP the emf.rr '1, or every b-irr-l of
I potatoes t ~,',: "!,'eo.i This then
.',ui',l amount to ',0'.y i, -'.e!-, of corn ;
which at 8s. ,,i: bag 'f 2',bushels would
amount to l''1n 0 ,l -I. The fodder
and ihipi- -rke-'t corn would P.jv for the-
manure r-,luiir,'l ; so that on the whole,

in corn alone, the snAinig wouldd be im-
mense. And, bt-,idis, it would be keep-
ing at the least 12 (20l0 in the colony,
which would othieriwise be sent to add
to the wealth of other countries. This
is a matter of va- importance, and
worthy of 'i-cti'l e-,sideration by
every planter in tbei country, and should
be taken up as a sulbect by the members
of Farmers' As.soci:ti'.i,-. With these
few yr marks I ,.'.ith :i\v f.:r the present
to give room fr ot l rs to take up the

MR. EDTTOR.-I regret to learn that the
tanks of the Hamiltoi Hotel are entirely
dry, having 1,een so for several weeks ;
and there h( in" over 100 boarders at
present, it is a great inc-onvenience as all
the water used, whiti is a great deal, has
to be carted a lhugidistance, causing a
large exlpeiist- to the propiet, 'r. I have
been informed that & few liberal friends
have kindly furninsli'ed him with a certain
quantity free of charge, for which he
-e-.ns to 1bt.y grateful for this
act of kinduess -fiil my opinion., and
no doubt the 'opini.)I ,:f many, that the
Corporation fri-'m \nliom he has rented
the hotel, shliulid pay. at least, a part of
this unforeseen expense which amounts
to some 2 per day, or $3,i 1 per- month.
Imagine a fire to break out in the hotel,
and no water at hand the prnpe-rt% would
inevitably be destroyed in a short time.
But let us reverse the order-and sup-
pose that a fire would lbreak out in the
town ; and were there tanks filled with
water, at the hotel, which should be the
case, then from that height water could
be conveyed through pipes, a great dis-
tance at the shortest notic-., and on hy-
drolic principle, would render itself sub-
servient without.' forcepumps. Mr.
Meade, the proprietor has taken every
means to encmrate thi, p_-issenger traffic
to Bermuda, and there:<.,re should meet
with every encouragement and assistance
from the citizens, more especially our
worthy Corporation. The question to
which I have referred, is of vital impor-
tance to our general interests, and should
therefore receive immediate attention of
the authorities, ep ei ally in their ad-
ding a few more tanks to the building.

Trial of the Assassins of Lord
Cavendish and Mr. Burke.

Dur(Lr;N, Februaay 11, 1883.-The
following are the names of the prison-
ers arrested :
Joseph Brady, Timothy Kelly,
James Carey, the Town Councillor,
the Carman Fitzharris, alias "The
Goat," Joseph Mullett Lawerance
Hanlon, James Mullett, Edward
O'Brien, William Maroney, Daniel
Curley and Daniel Delaney were pla-
ced in the dock to-day.
Among these present. ip the Court
were Mr. Jenkinson, Director of the
Irish Criminal Investigation Depart-
ment, and Courteney Boyle, Private
Secretary to Lord Lieut. Spencer.
Before the prisoners were charged
to-day the counsel for George Smith,
one of the accused conspirators, made
i1iplication for the admission of his
client to bail, which was refused.
Great excitement, ensued when
Kavanagh was placed in .the witness
seat. Kavanagh apparently labored
under great excitement, He deposed
that on the sixth of May last he was
at the Royal Oak public house in
Park Gate Street. He was engaged
by four men, Brady and Kelly and
two strangers.
Brady here uttered a loud guttural
threat, 'but no distinct words were

There was no faiglier to-day among
the prisoners when Kavanagh'identifi-
ed themi-in. Kavanagh pointed out Pa-
trick Delaney as another of the men

pre.nt.; he drove the four men into
the Park by the Island Bridge Gate
to the Phoenix monument, and along
the main road to the Gough monu-
ment, and there they got down. They
said there was no sign of "Skin the
Goat, minea.-ing James Fitzharris-.
The criminal Fitzharris here shout-
ed, "Don't call me nicknames."
After the prisoners said there was no
sign of Fitzlarris the witness saw an
American with a cab coming from -the
opposite direction, and saw four men a-
light from the cab. The cab stayed a
long way up the road with the horses'
heads turned toward Diubliu. A short
time after he saw two gentlemen ap-
prl',aoliin,, and heard a cry ; on looking
around he saw one, of the gentlemen
fall. He did not see the other fall, but
the men whom he drove to the Park
jiiipec1 on his eam' and he drove away.
Braly sat on the right side of the car.
.imvana.h idltntifiedl Fitzh-vrris as the
driver of the cab; He/deposed that he
siw Lord Cavr i,,i'isi'and Mr. Burke ap-
pr'ihiii". Some one among those he
drove said ihe,+ tall man was to be assas-
sinated. Kavanagh .iMd he subsequent-
ly drove by Chapelizod, round town to
Palmierstion Park. Kelly alighted at
tlih, terminus. Brady paid him one

pound. Kavanagh, continuing his tes-
timony, said after the men he drove to
the Park had alighted there he put a
nose bag on his horse. While waiting
hb heard a person speak to James Ca-
rey. Delaney alter' yards instructed him
(Kavanagh' to look sharp and be ready
to start. Upon this he drove.nearer to
the waiting group, which included some
persons he did not know. Two gentle-
men, Lord Cavendish and Mr. Burke,
were approaching arm in arm. James
Carey and Delaney, who had come back
on a car from the place where it was
waiting, jiumiup e down anid joined the
group. The witness heard on;e ,one say
"It is the tall man." Kavanagh* was
then ordered to go further away by
some of the conspirators. As he did so
the witness heard some one, he could
not tell who, repeat, Mind, it is the tall
man." As the gentklmen came along
either Carey or Delaney raised a white
handkerchief. While he was waiting,
the carman, nicknamed '"The Goat,"
passed him driving a passenger named
Noblan towards Dublin. HIe was also
passed by some bicyclists. He (wit-
ness) on looking around thought he saw
only one gentlemiianu all, he said that, the
other who had au umbrella. was lying
on the ground. On driving from the
scene of the murder they took a turn to
the left, then crossed the bridge to the
right along the lIuchic',ire road. Dela-
ney directed him where to drive. He
drove rapidly until he reached .Round
Town, three miles from the Park.6 Here
Tim Kelly ..alighted. lHe then drove
round to Lesson Park, stopping at a
public house near Lesson bridge. Bra-
dy there paid and dismi-smd him. On
Sunday morning IFe met Brady at Town-
send Street and received t wo pounds.
Brady after'wai ls I, ouighlt him a harness.
London, Feb. 11.-A man suppos-
ed to be concerned ,with the Phoenix
Park murders was arrested at Swan-
sea to-day.
Dublin, Feby. 11.-A man named
Caffery has been arrested and it is
stated'Kavanagh identifies him as the
fourth man on the car he drove into
Phoenix Park on the day of the mur-
LIN, Feby. 11.-Divers are searching
the basin of the Grand Canal for the
knives which Kavanagh deposed at
the Kilmainham Court that he and
Brady had thrown into it. The wva-
ter will be drawn from the basin to'-
morrow if the divers are unsuccessful.
Kavanigh further deposed that
Fitzharris on one o-ccasion told him
that they were after Jndge Laws,-'n.
Kavanagl said le ai ini fi.rm-r
on Thirsraiy He hi,1 been
sworn into the socitv by Kollv. The
post assigned him was t'Li di rip-
An indpen lent, witness corrobora-
ted having seen Kavaiigli pvious to
the Phoenix Park mur'L-rs at. public
houses he mentioned in his evidence
as having visited before he drove to
the Park. The trial was. adjournel to
Thursday next.
Kavanagh, in replying to 1Mu-phy
.Crowe, counsel said on the Ctl of
May he wore a white hat, but a man
on the ear, who was not in the prison-
ers' dock, changed with hinm, giving
him a large brown one. tTiis is im-
portant, as it is believed to furnish a
clue to a murderer who has not been
apprehended.) Kava nagh further de-
posed that Fitzharris, on one occasion
told him they were after Judge Law-
son. Kavanagh said he became an in-
former on Thursday last. He had
been sworn into secrecy by Kelly.
Doyle told him that James Muliett,
and a lot of big people were attached
to secrecy. .
George Mothly a hatter of Chap1el
Street, Dublin, deposed that he saw
Kavanagh on the (5th of May at Wrens
public, house, which Kavanagh men-
tioned in his depositiion.
DUBLIN, Feb. 5.-The identification
of Kavanagh by the little girl Brophy
was particularly complete. She says
she spoke to him, and asked him
whom he was waiting for. She saw
hime-when going on messages three
times within half nan hour. Immedi-
ately after her return the third time,
she heard cm ies of murder," and im-
mediately ran to the door. By that
time there were two men besides the
driver on the car. The third man

was just mounting. She was only
able to identify Kavanagh. The wit-
ness was severely cross-examined but
never faltered in her testimony.
When Kavanagh was identified ihe
blushed and smiled uneasily.

ever to my
dahing thought!
Feof my heart, for I'
dreaded t date flight of mny soul]
into the eternal regions. Every nerve
instinctively quivered -as if touched by
some galvanic power, and the first symp-
toms of physical motion became appa-
rent. Gradually the vital essence diffus-
ed itself, until its presence in every part
of my body was felt. I then made the
attempt to raise myself upon my feet,
but fell down. I felt as if my body was
under some other agency than my will.
No person diseased with St. Vitus dance
effected more fantastic and grotesque
gestures, than I did. Every limb felt as
Sif dispoiuted, and every muscle seemed
to fas!iion motion peculiar to itself, in-
dependently of the systematic harmony
which nature had designed. After a
long series of child-like exercise I suc-
ceeded in the attempt of walking to and
fro in the chamiiber, supported by lean-
ing my hand against the wall. Finally,
my whole system became subservient to
my purpose ; but from the morbid stiff-
ness of my hands and feet I felt suspici-
ous of them being badly frozen.
It was calm clear frosty morning;,
the sun was sh9iini cheerfully, I took
but a hurried glance over the marble
features of the river and landscape a-
Tound. I discovered my position to be
identical with the pre-supposed locality.
_. To the right I beheld with horror the
treacherous labyrinth of ice through
which I had wandered. Beyond, on the
main shore stood the DUNN'S MILLs ; and
I have reasons for believing it was the
light in them that had allured me so far
up-stream. A couple of miles further
down was La Tortue the place I intend-
ed landing at; and a few miles still fur-
ther eastward stood the town of La Prai-
xie. The opposite side of the river pre-
serited a less-regular lpliear:in-e. owing
to the intervention, of the NUN ISLAND ;
yet, the hoary summit of Mount Royal,
with the city of Montreal nestling at its
feet-gave a romantic feature to the
landscape, and threw an enchanting
gracefulness over the whole scene.
I then took my final leave of the old
house, wandered down to the lower part
of the island, and bade adieu to my ICE-
olated residence. I came immediately
to the open stream, which 1 had previ-
ously attempted to cross. I saw it was
the attmnuated form of a small lake-like
chasm further up, and occasioned by
the rapid whirl of the water around the
lower point of the island
I could have avoided it by starting
from a higher point, but in doing so,
woul have -u.itlan'r.d myself amid the
rtingedi ii---reef('' referred to.
.By f,llnwin. tlih stream n fr some dis-
tance its inrovwer limit, a.ailed me of
Ajnil v_ i safely a',"s. i I i,:ia'e. but
slow progress, chiefly from the exhausted
state of my body and the stiffness of my
limbs; however, I succeeded at length
in reaching La Tortue, disi ant some 5
miles,j after having been exposed for the
1 ng period of SIXTEEN HOURS to the ruth--
less elements of nature and the icy jaws
of appaling danger. Oh! how my heart
warmed with the joy of gratitude as I
placed my foot upon shore. I felt like
the retiring hero in his martial triumph,
weak, yet strong.'
On entering the hotel, where I had in-
tended st.iin!g the previous night, the
host and others present startled back,
and stared at me with astonishment.
The burs upon my clothes, together with
other characteristics, presented a sort of
savage and unnatural appearance, which
led them to suppose that I was a real
live savage of the Backwoods, or a fugi-
tive from Bedlam.
When my real condition became
known every assistance for my comfort
was rendered; it was soon discovered
that my .hands and feet were badly fro-
Szen; my face also bore the finger-marks
of Boreas. The most effectual means
available for restoration, were immedi-
ately applied. For two hours my limbs
were soaked in ice-water, and every fro-
zen part subjected to the most powerful
antidotes to extract the frost.
On the following day I was removed
home; but I will not burden my read-
ers with the connected details of my
subsequent suffering. Be it sufficient. to
say, that for three months I was confined
-'' to.i nmy bed, during the first part of which
Time, I experienced all that 'human na-
ture is capable of enduring.
I suffered a thousand deaths, more
horrible than the real. Inflammation in

the frozen parts tortured, me with its
searing fangs, and fever with its wild
If sleep for a moment closed my eye-
lids I fancied myself struggling over the
bubbling chasm, and clinging to its slip-
pery edge, whilst, a thousand furies ap-
peared ,to be dragging me under. The
best of medical skill was procured, but,
death seemed for a while to baffle the
physician's art. My. life, however, was
spared; but' the "FOOT MARKS" of that
sad event still remain ; and in my sys-
tem I still suffer the effects of that terri-
ble night. When the 17th of February
annually comes rolling along upon the
tide of TIME it brings back to my soul, in
* rememberance a re-newal of the7 scenes
and sufferings of that "EVENTFUL EVFNT'

A Derangement of the

Arnd Nervcus System,.

BZloe',' will be funld aa brief Sum-
mary of a Lecture upon the Liver, delivered
before the Eclectic College of Medicine by
THE LIVER has been known as the
great Bl3rooP--MAKER and BliOOD-
PURIFIER of the Circulation. From its
size and s tpoi y st iiren1'I, it plays a most
important part in the animal economy, as
regards assimilation anil nutrition. Food
laken in the inoinih an'l acted, mnon by the
digestive or_'ii-o or the stomach is con-
verted into Gluco e mnd P'eptone, and in
these forms v, 'rs the P',rtal vein. IIere,
by the action f the liver, these substances
are converted into a form of sugar and
pass out of the liver by a large vein, called
the Hepatic vein, into the general circula.
tion. The new material now formed serves
two purposes, viz. : the maintenance of
heat in thie lIdyv and assisting in the cel-
g.ri'.th of the system.
Dr. Murchison .says, "The con position
of bile and its -icr,..tion is very complex.
It is constantly being secreted bvy the
liver, and, increasing suddenly before eat-
il., gradually decreases'as soon as the ap-
,'.tie is .:Ltiifiud and ceelijn, ceases." Now
if this most important organ of the body
become torpid, or the passage of bile in-
terfered will, emaciation and disease en-
sue, I note eight marked peculiarities
that now occur, and which we all know of:
1. The patient complains of,a
feeling of weight and fullness of
the celigas.4trium.
2. Distention of the stomach
and bowels by wind.,
3. Hleart-burn.
4. A feeling of weariness, pains
in the limbs and great sleepiness
.il'er meals.
5. A. bad laste in the mouth,
especially in the morning, and
itt red tongue.
6. Constipation, with occasion-
al attacks of diarrhoeo.
7. Headache in front of head.
,8. Depression of spirits and
great melancholy, with lassitude
,and a disposition to leave every-
,iiing for to-morrow.
All of the above vinlptonis go to show
functional 'drawi.einmeit ot' the liver ; and
now comes the great importance of any
error made as to the condition of the pa-
' tie,'t. lie shl'uill immediately provide
himself with a LIVER. STIMULANT,
thle most common form of which is a Pill
DT ilr e.xp'-rie'rce shows that this, when
the Pill is compounded properly, is the
readiest mode of inciting and proi''ting
the action of the liver, and can be almost
always relied on. I have devoted many
-years of my life, as many of you now be-,
fore me know, to c'Oi popimiiliing a Pill that
will act readily and systematically as a
Bilious Remedy. I do not believe in
great purgatives, and therefore have made
, Pill, one of which is an active and
thorough dose. I have called it
(Sugar Coated )
One Pill is a Dose One Pill is a
Dose! One Pill is a Dose! .
For all diseases of the Kidniev, Reten-
tion of Urine, Dr. Havdock's Pills are a
perfect .cure. One pill will satisfy the
jfmost skeptical.
Dr. Haydoak's New Liver tilli will be
found an Effectual Remedy.
They are universal in their effe-ts, and
a cure can almost always be gua :inu ed,.
Each Vial Contains Twenty Pills

Five Cents. For Sale by a. l idr.ggi..

these reservoirs if any of the house'
drainage can precolate them.- The
gelatinous matter often found upon
the stones of a well is a poison to the
human system, probably causing by
its spores a fermentation of the blood L
with abnormal heat or fever. Whole-
some, untainted water is always free
' from all color and odor. To test it
thoroughly. place half a pint in a clear"
bottle with a fvtw grains of lump sugar,
and expose it, stoppered, to sunlight

has bven containinated by selvage of
some kind. If it remains perfectly

Any animal if allowed to get poor
after having been fat will never fatten

If salt and charcoal be fed to pigs

by preserving their health.
What oats and corn are to the
horse, manure is to the plant; but the
same manure does not do for all plants.
Experiment shows that with early
rose potatoes the smallest amount of
seed in the hill yields the best crop.
Use chemical manure in preference
to any other for potatoes. Ordinary
manure may contain the mildew seeds.
Young cows do not give as rich

rich milk.
There is nothing better for a fertilizer

Unwashed wool contains a large )

Pruning ought to be donelafter the

Linseed is perhaps, of ordinary

If you have to shut your hens up to
keep them out of the garden, do not
forget to give them an occasional sod
so they may scratch and pick at it.
For family cows, heifers with their
first calves should be milked within a

Thrl general opinion is that ants are
enemies to fruit trees, but it has long

Varnish-brushes should never be al-
lowed to touch water, as it not only in-
jures the elasticity of the hair, but
a resinous substance is formed in
the hilt of the brush, which can never
be thoroughly removed, and which will
