Conviction of Henry WOODEN - A man
of considerable wealth, named Henry WOODEN, residing in the town of Victor,
was indicted, tried and acquitted, something over one year ago, at
Canandaigua, on a charge of causing the death of his wife, some six years
previous. The treatment of WOODEN to his wife had not been kind, and the
singular circumstances attending her death gave rise to suspicion. Her body
was found one morning in a well near the house where she resided. No
indictment was found against WOODEN, at the time of his wife's death, but,
some five or six years afterwards, his son's wife went before the Grand
Jury, and procured his indictment. She was a domestic in his family at the
time of the death of Mrs. WOODEN. She also caused WOODEN to be indicted for
a rape upon her person, and this assault doubtless induced her to reveal,
what knowledge she possessed, in relation to the alleged murder. The
indictment for rape, obtained some year or more since, only came to trial
last week, and resulted in the conviction of the accused. Sentence has not
yet been passed.
Last week, before the Court of Oyer
and Terminer in this village, Henry WOODEN was convicted of a rape on his
daughter-in-law. Sentence has not yet been passed. This is the same man who
was tried about a year ago for murdering his wife and acquitted.
Circuit Court here last week, John HILL recovered a verdict of three
thousand dollars against the Rochester & Syracuse Railroad company, for
injury done him by a train of cars while he was crossing the Railroad at
West Vienna, in a buggy, some time in 1850. - (Ontario Messenger.
