ESCAPE FROM JAIL
On Thursday afternoon, four prisoners escaped from the jail at Canandaigua. By some means they got up into the
loft, and thence through a scuttle upon the roof, after which they lowered themselves to the ground by means of
sheets taken from their beds. They then scaled the walls and went off. One of them was arrested at Fisher's Station
yesterday morning, and brought to this place by an officer from Canandaigua. The others are still at large. Their
names are Charles BALES, William DEMING, and Augustus GEER. They have been seen in this vicinity - at the first

FUNERAL OF GRIFFITH H. JONES
The remains of Griffith H. JONES reached this city by railroad, yesterday morning at 1 o'clock, via Suspension
Bridge, and the funeral took place from his late residence on Asylum street, at 2 o'clock p.m. There was a large
attendance. Members of the Prima Donna Boat Club acted in the capacity of bearers.
We learn that the accident by which Mr. JONES lost his life, occurred at Prince Albert, fifteen or sixteen miles
from Oshawa. He was in a boat shooting with a relative. Having occasion to change his seat, he undertook to draw
his gun toward him by the muzzle, when the lock caught on something, and the weapon was discharged, its contents
passing into his vitals. He expired immediately.

Fire in North Bloomfield - The Union announces that on Saturday morning at 4 o'clock, the wooden building in North
Bloomfield, Ontario Co., owned by John P. BROWN, was burned. It was occupied below by Mr. BROWN as a saw mill,
and above by Allen & Buggy as a woolen factory, and Andrew FAIRCHILD, millwright. The entire building and machinery
were consumed, notwithstanding the efforts of the citizens to save them.
The loss of Allen & Buggy on machinery and stock - including 700 to 1,000 yards of cloth and 7,000 lbs. of
wool - is about $7,000. Mr. ALLEN is absent in New York and the amount of insurance if any, is not known.
Mr. BROWN's loss on building is estimated at $3,000. Partially insured.
Mr. FAIRCHILD - loss on tools, &c, will reach $1,000. No insurance.
The grist mill adjoining was badly, and only saved from destruction by great effort.
The conflagration is a serious blow to the town as well as a pecuniary loss to those most immediately interested.
The light of this fire was bright enough to cause an alarm in the city, and the Fire Department were called out
and went to the south east until they found that the fire was beyond their reach.
The McLaughlin Elopement - On Saturday morning, Chief of Police WARNER received a despatch from the wife of Finnegan,
who ran away with Jane McLAUGHLIN the other night, making inquiries about the affair, and the Chief answered immediately,
giving all the particulars in his possessions.
It has been ascertained that the fugitives went to New York, whither Mr. McLAUGHLIN has gone in pursuit. Before
starting he telegraphed to have them arrested for grand larceny. We understand that Jane carried away with her
only $700 in money, besides the jewelry and silver plate in the house. As it was all held in her name, we do not
see how she can be charged with larceny in carrying it off.
Another Boat Sunk - The canal coat P. J. MEYERS, from Buffalo, with over 6,000 bushels of wheat, sunk near the
first lock, Saturday morning. In consequence as is alleged, of striking the bottom at some point within the city
limits. The canal had been drawn down from six to nine inches, owing to the threatened break at Allen street bridge,
and we are told that the boat was drawing more than five feet of water. About 2,600 bushels of wheat are damaged.
Insured in the Corn Exchange Company.
Contractor DODGE had a gang of men at work getting the sunken boat out of the way, Saturday afternoon.

Saturday, Oct. 13 - Bridget JOICE - drunk - Discharged.
Ann WILLIAMS was convicted of vagrancy, and sent up for three months.

SUDDEN DEATH OF THE FAT WOMAN
Betsey FEDENBURG, the fat colored woman who has been exhibited as a curiosity in various parts of the country for
some time past, died suddenly at the Central depot in this city. Saturday forenoon. She had just arrived from Livonia
by the Genesee Valley Railroad, and was on the way to her home in Lockport, in company with Mr. H. A. LOWNSBURY,
her agent or managing man. On getting out of the omnibus at the Central depot, she complained of being faint, and
sank down in a corner, where she expired in the course of two or three minutes after being attacked. Her remains
were placed in a cart and removed to a barn in rear of Mr. JEFFREY's undertaking establishment, where Coroner BLOSA
held an inquest. The jury found a verdict of disease of the heart.
The dead woman was apparently thirty-seven or thirty-eight years of age.
She was never married. It is said that she weighed between five and six hundred pounds.
A USEFUL ENTERPRISE
Mr. George MASSETH, of Canandaigua, has recently published a small and neatly got up pamphlet, which he calls a
"Business Directory of the city of Rochester." It is in fact a collection of advertisements of various
establishments, commercial, mechanical and so on, in this place, which he causes to be distributed, gratuitously,
throughout the adjacent country, in such a way as to attract attention to the contents. This plan is an excellent
one, we should think, and if the enterprise proves a paying one, further issues of the same sort will be made periodically.
BAILED - On Friday last, John BRENNAN was bailed out of the Penitentiary by John TRACY and Wm. CARROLL. He would
have been released in due course of law, in ten days more.
PRYOR WARRANT - in this city, Oct 11th, Samuel Vanderpool PRYOR to Mrs. WARRANT, widow of the late William WARRANT.
HEBBARD - In Milford, Oakland county, Mich. Sept. 27th, 1860, of brain fever, Frank H, only son of Sterling A.

KIDNAPPING AND MURDER
Chicago, Oct 16 - An outrageous case of kidnapping occurred at Galena in the latter part of September. A negro
named Jerry BOYD, 45 years of age, his wife, a mulatto, 35 years, and daughter aged 14, were induced to go to Iowa
to work on a farm. The 8th of this month a man was found near Iowa city murdered.
It is supposed that becoming suspicious he was killed by the kidnappers that they might retain possession of the
women. The citizens of Galena have offered a reward of $500 for the apprehension of the kidnappers.
Baltimore, Oct. 14 - Preston SMITH, Master of Transportation on the Baltimore and Ohio R.R., while getting off
the Cincinnati train lost a portion of his foot, and only escaped with his life by remarkable presence of mind.
He is now doing well.
A man James LARRAGEE, whose residence is on the Lyell road, a short distance beyond the city line, has been missing
since 9 o'clock last Friday forenoon, when he was seen and conversed with by a gentleman on Mill street. He was
at the time intoxicated, and it is feared that he fell into Brown's race, and was drowned. He has a wife and several
children. LARRAGEE is about forty-five years of age, five feet eight inches in height, thick set, dark complexion,
and dark hair. He speaks with a husky voice, as though he had a cold. It is said he talked of going to Ogdensburgh
when he was seen on Mill street. He had at the time, a five dollar bill. He has been employed as a track hand on
Monday, Oct. 15 - The trial of Edward SULLIVAN for robbery, was commenced at 2 o'clock p.m. and will probably occupy
the whole or the greater part of to-morrow.
An error appeared in our report of Saturday's proceedings. Mary Jane PEART was represented as having pleaded guilty
of forgery in the second degree. Her plea was not guilty.
Monday, Oct. 15 - The case of PITTS against BEEBE was given to the Jury this forenoon, but no verdict had been
rendered at 5 o'clock.
The court announced that no more jury trials would be taken up this term.
Saturday, Oct. 13th - John HANNAN was arrested on a civil warrant issued under the city ordinance, relating to
hackney coaches. The charge against him was running his carriage without license - the Mayor having sometime since
revoked his license. HANNAN denies the Mayor's right of revocation.
The Police Justice rendered judgment for $6,09, penalty and costs, and defendant gave notice of appeal.

and only daughter of K. C. and Mary ST. JOHN, aged 25 years.
Funeral from Christ Church, this Wednesday afternoon, at 2 o'clock. Friends of deceased and family are invited
It will be seen by the report of proceedings in the Court of Oyer and Terminer yesterday, that Edward Sullivan
was convicted of robbery in the first degree. It will be remembered that he was charged with despoiling a green
countryman from St. Lawrence county named ADKINS, of some money and other articles. Two other fellows named TICE
and VAN BUSKIRK, were engaged in the affair, and both are now in the State Prison on ten year sentences.
The case has dragged along two or three years, during a good part of which time, the rogues have been enjoying
the sweets of liberty. VAN BUSKIRK and SULLIVAN broke jail once or twice each, and it was a long while after the
robbery, before TICE was arrested at all. During some eight months the victim, ADKINS, was detained in jail as
a witness, but at last he was discharged on his own recognizance. He has made four or five journeys since, from
St. Lawrence county to this city, for the purpose of appearing to testify in the case. Several times the trials
were postponed at the request of counsel for the culprits.
A lad named GLOVER, disappeared from his home in Penn Yan several weeks since, under unaccountable circumstances.
The Chronicle says that he is the son of Justus S. GLOVER, of that village, and the singularity of his absence
is greatly increased by the quiet and amiable character he has always maintained.
He has always been highly esteemed as a good boy, in the just and emphatic sense of the term. His parents and friends
would be much rejoiced to learn of his whereabouts, if well situated, and it would allay their anxiety to hear
where he is in any event. He has now been absent several weeks, and nobody can imagine any good cause why he left
home. Our contemporaries who notice the fact, will confer a favor on an afflicted family.
Notice was given at the Police Office yesterday morning, that seventeen fat sheep belonging to Joseph POOL, butcher
in Frankfort, were stolen from an enclosure on the Lyell road the previous night.

NEW PATENTS - The records of the Patent Office show a remarkable degree of
activity among inventors, notwithstanding the absorbing interest in politics
at the present time. We select from the list those obtained through the agency
of J. FRASER, Esq., 24 Arcade, in the past four weeks, the following as
possessing some local interest to our readers. Several of these have been
prosecuted through a long course of appeals, and were obtained after repeated

ARRESTED FOR RAPE - Last evening Peter THOMPSON, Constable of Wheatland,
brought to the Jail in this city Thomas WARD, of that town, who is committed
on a paper from Justice Dugal McQUEEN, charging him with an assault and rape
upon Alice BURBAGE. The paper states that the offence was committed in May
We understand that WARD is a married man, and his
wife is the aunt of the female who is complainant in the case. He is about
35(?) years of age and the girl 16. WARD is employed to work the farm of Mr.
CLARK in Wheatland, and the BURBAGE family are poor people residing in that
town. Of the detailed of the affair, we hear no more than is stated, but as
it has been allowed to slumber since May, and all parties residing in the
same neighborhood, the inference is that the case may partake of the
character of seduction rather than rape. Parties were here this morning
making arrangements to enter bail for WARD, if bail is admissible.

We regret to announce that our friends Mr. and Mrs. M. R. DOLE, of Churchville, have been stricken down by the
loss of a lovely little daughter, who was taken from them by the tyrant Death, last Saturday. She had reached an
age at which children are always most tenderly loved, before the blighting influence of earthly passions has robbed
them of their innocence, while at the same time they are old enough to exhibit the germs of promise for the future.
Such bereavements are crushing, and we have reason to know how utterly unavailing to comfort are human consolations
and expressions of sympathy.
The disease of which this little girl died was diphtheria. This scourge is reported to be ravaging the households
of many in various parts of the country.
Parents should be constantly on the watch for its incipient stages, and be prepared to combat it early.
LIFE OF GEN. GARIBALDI
This is an autobiography, translated by Theodore DWIGHT, and first published about a year ago, and is now again
brought before the public, owing to existing disturbances in Italy, which have given to this champion of Italian
liberty a place in public estimation second to no crowned head in Europe. The volume is embellished with a fine
engraved portrait on steel, of GARBALDI, and should be in the possession of every one.
We learn that a man who came up on the direct road from the east at 1:40 yesterday morning, was robbed at Syracuse
of $400 in gold. A despatch preceded the train, announcing the robbery, and officer Campbell was on hand when the
cars arrived. He overhauled several parties who looked suspicious, but found nothing. The name or residence of
the man who was robbed we could not learn.
FOR THE PENITENTIARY
John FIFER, was yesterday brought down from Ridgeway, Orleans county, and committed to the Penitentiary for one
hundred and eighty days. He was convicted before Justice COLE of assault and battery. He has been up two or three
times before, on similar charges, which accounts for the severity of his sentence.
Wednesday, Oct 18 - Frank McGOVERN was arrested for being drunk.
Discharged on account of the necessity of his family.
Wm. PRESTON, a canal driver, was arrested by the night police for disorderly conduct, but nobody appeared against
him, and there was some doubt in the mind of the Magistrate whether he was the right person.
Patrick LEONARD, a backman, was complained of for leaving his team and carriage alone in the street. He pleaded
guilty, and judgment was entered against him for $4,04, penalty and costs.

The writer thinks he never saw so many people assembled or so much weeping at the funeral of a child - Having in
his sermon referred to her dying words, "I'm going home," the children present closed the exercises by
singing the hymn commencing "I'm a Pilgrim," one which at Sabbath Seboel and Sabbath School Concerts
they had often sung with her whose pilgrimage is now ended. All present seemed much effected.
Carrie DOLE was to an uncommon degree lovely and beloved.

A colored woman in Philadelphia, went to work last Saturday, leaving her infant in charge of a woman living in
the same house. This woman locked the child into her room for a time, and when she returned found that its nose,
one eye, and a part of the cheek, had been eaten by rats, and the poor infant so far gone that it cannot recover.
The Countess La TORRE is a lady so devoted to GARIBALDI and his cause, that she follows the Dictator wherever he
goes. At Caseta she wore a sort of Bloomer dress, pantaloons, a man's hat with red feathers, and high boots. For
arms, she carried a revolver and a saber, both of which she can use with deadly skill.
A lad named Heelan, of Troy, while playing in the loft of a paper factory a few days ago, accidentally fell through
the entire series of lofts, never stopping till he reached the basement floor. Strange to relate, instead of being
instantly killed, he only received a severe, but not dangerous cut on the head.
A poor woman, ragged and faint, carrying in her arms a gaunt, puny-looking babe, came to the Second District police
office in New Orleans on the night of the 9th, and sank down exhausted in the doorway. She said she was homeless,

Washington, Oct. 19 - A dispatch announces the murder of the Rev Morris BRANGNIER, missionary to the Crow Indians
by a party of Sioux.
Dangerously Injured - We learn that Dr. Nathan DRESSER was badly injured at his residence, No. 11 Alexander street,
last Monday night, by falling down stairs. He struck upon a newell post at the foot of the flight, and broke several
ribs, besides receiving some other internal hurts of a serious character. He had been upstairs to close a window,
and in the darkness missed his footing. Being a large, heavy man such a fall could scarcely fail to result badly.
Light in Dansville - The Dansville Herald says that Mr. GRATTAN, of the firm of Wm. L. SCHONNER A. Co., has purchased

THAT SUPPOSED MURDER
The Buffalo Courier of yesterday contained the following about the supposed murder case on the Buffalo and Niagara
As the train of cars on the Niagara Falls Railroad, due here night before last at 7:30, had passed the curve this
side of Tonawanda, the cow catcher of the engine struck a woman that was lying on the track, throwing her clear
off the rails quite a distance. The engineer did not discover any one on the track until it was too late to reverse
his machine. The body of the woman proved to be a Mrs. JACOBS, and no doubt she had been murdered and placed on
the track, as upon examination her throat was found cut, and a severe wound in her head, made by some sharp instrument,
was also discovered.
The Commercial Advertiser of last evening copies the above, and takes the sensation out of it by saying:
We have made inquiries during the day, and learned in addition to the above, that a Coroner's inquest was held
on the body of the deceased in Tonawanda, when it was "found" that she came to her death in consequence
of being run over by the cars. The wound in the throat, alluded to, was supposed to have been occasioned by a sharp
projection on the fore part of the engine, and not to have been previously inflicted.
Friday, Oct. 19 - The case of George HAUCK who was convicted for manslaughter in the second degree, came to a termination
this forenoon without being given to the jury. The prisoner was defended by Messrs. PERRY & BRAND, who moved
the discharge of their client, on the ground that an indictment for homicide would not lie against an accoucheur
when a child died before its birth. The court sustained this view of the matter and ordered the discharge of the
prisoner. It came out in course of the case that the woman upon whom HAUCK attended has had two or three children,
but neither of them was born alive.
Mary Jane PEART, the young woman who stands charged with forgery in the second degree, in obtaining money from
the Rochester Savings Bank, by means of a spurious cheque or order, was put upon trial and the cause is still in

Edward SULLIVAN, the robber, has been awarded precisely the same punishment with his associates in crime, VAN BUSKIRK
They have been at Auburn Prison for some time, doing the State service, and on Saturday SULLIVAN got his ticket
for the same institution. He is entitled to board and lodging for ten years to come.
These fellows were among the most notorious characters of the city, two or three years since, and around them rallied
a host of satellites emulous of their fame. The gang has finally been broken up and the inferior members scattered
various directions, but, thanks to the Court of Oyer and Terminer, the leaders are to be re united for several
years to come, within the walls of the same establishment. Perhaps the "locals" of Rochester have reason
to mourn their departure for the gang furnished material for numerous items.
We'll try and submit to the bereavement with good grace, however, and we know that the public generally will.
THE FORGERY CASE
As will be observed by the Court report, Mary Jane PEART, the young woman who was arrested in Cincinnati for obtaining
money on a forged cheque purporting to be signed by her mother, was on Saturday acquitted in the Court of Oyer
and Terminer. The charge of Judge JOHNSON was quite favorable to the prisoner. He seemed to think that she committed
the crime under circumstances indicating that her husband coerced her, and the jury probably based their verdict
on that ground. During the trial the defendant was apparently quite unconcerned about the result.
WAYNE COUNTY ITEMS
The Lyons Republican says, that the trial of MULDOON who was implicated with FEE in the murder of an unknown woman,
in September 1859, will take place at the term of the Court of OYER and TERMINER, which commences in that village
A little paper called the Ontario News has been started in the town of Ontario by Mr. C. P. HOPKINS. It is mainly
devoted to local news.
The Pultneyville Press, heretofore an occasional sheet, has been enlarged, and is hereafter to be published regularly.
This man got off with a light sentence in the court of OYER and TERMINER, Saturday. He was condemned to imprisonment
for six years in the State Prison at Auburn. He had nothing to say in mitigation of his crime, and received the
announcement of his punishment coolly.
PERSONAL - Hon. William JESSUP of Pennsylvania, and Hon. Daniel ULLMAN, of New York, arrived in town Saturday evening.
Judge JESSUP speaks at Albion, and Mr. ULLMAN in this city, this evening.
Miss LYON, the young lady with whose attempt to commit suicide with a pistol, and the causes which led thereto,
the public have already been acquainted, is pronounced convalescent. She seems in pretty good spirits and on Friday

A post mortem examination of the body of Fanny WHITE - the noted New York procuress whose suspiciously sudden death
has already alluded to - has been made by two physicians, who confined their examination to the heart, liver, lungs,
&c., Omitting the stomach and intestines, and give it as their opinion that she died of apoplexy. Her friends,
however, were not satisfied, and another examination is to be made by several distinguished physicians.
The N.Y. Sun says: "The evening previous to her death she appeared in perfect health, and witnessed from Bixby's
Hotel, Broadway, near 10th street, the procession in honor of the Prince of Wales."
A Boston man, in a fit of ill-temper, locked his wife out of his chamber at night.
She entreated without avail; she broke the panel of the door in with an ax, and, putting her pretty head through,
calmly asked him whether he would ‘unlock the door or make her come in that way," - and he caved.
A YOUNG LADY BURNED TO DEATH
A shocking accident occurred at the residence of Mrs. REILLEY, on Sunday afternoon, which resulted in the death
of a young lady named Ann RAVELL.-
Miss RAVELL had just returned home from church and approached the fire blazing on the hearth. -
Upon turning around suddenly, the skirt of her dress, which was greatly expanded by hoops - took fire, and instantly
enveloped her in flames.
Mrs. REILLY was the only person present at the time of the accident, and she became so panic stricken on witnessing
the situation of Miss RAVEL as to be almost unable to render any assistance. Miss RAVEL, was well nigh smothered
by the flames and smoke, with her clothes nearly burned from her body, rushed wildly from the room. Her sudden
movement fanned the flames that were consuming her, and increased the misery she endured.
She had scarcely reached the open air when a heavy blanket was thrown over her body by Mrs. REILLY. The groans
and cries of the sufferer were heart rending in the extreme; but the spectacle that was presented on removing the
blanket was appalling. The whole body, from the feet to the neck, was frightfully burned. Dr. BAKER was immediately
called, and proceeded to alleviate the sufferings of the girl. She died, however, yesterday afternoon.

ESCAPE FROM THE HOUSE OF REFUGE
On Thursday of last week, two boys confined in the House of Refuge, escaped from that institution. Their names
are Barney MORAN and James MARTIN, and both were sent from Buffalo - MORAN for burglary and MARTIN for larceny,
It is supposed that both have made their way to that city, or that they are on the road now. We refrained, at the
request of Superintendent WOOD, from making their escape known in our Saturday's issue, in the hope that they would
be retaken immediately, so that their return could be announced at the same time.
The time at which the young rogues escaped must have been soon after midnight, when the watchman in the hall was
down in the basement replenishing the fire in the furnace. -
By some means they managed to unlock the doors of their cells, and then the door of the hall. Having thus succeeded
in gaining the open air, they scaled the wall with the assistance of a long plank placed against it, and went off.
MORAN is about seventeen years of age, but is small sized, and looks younger than he really is. MARTIN is about
fifteen. The former is a skillful burglar and picklock, notwithstanding his youth, and it was doubtless he that
planned the escape and furnished means for its execution.
GAMBLERS AT ISSUE
Yesterday forenoon a chap named WALLIS - Jack WALLIS, we believe he is usually called - entered a complaint against
one George CROMBIE, proprietor of a traveling faro bank, for gambling. It appears that WALLIS tried his luck fighting
the tiger and got badly beaten in the encounter, losing considerably over one hundred dollars. Being a gambler
himself, he ought to have stood his misfortune without flinching, as he would have expected his antagonist to do
under similar circumstances; but his manliness would not carry him to that length, and hence his complaint. Various
propositions were made to hush the affair up, but we understand that the accused was finally held to bail. Whether
the bondsman are good for anything we do not know it is not likely that the case will ever come to trial.
EX - ALD. GEORGE W. PERRY
We learn that this gentleman, who has been laid up with a disease in one of his legs for two years past, went to
New York a week ago, for the purpose of placing himself under the treatment of eminent surgeons in that city, and
is now in the hospital there. Mr. PERRY accompanied him and will act as his nurse during his absence, which promises
to be somewhat protracted.
Such an affliction as that which Ald. PERRY has been called to endure, is one of the severest that can fall upon
a man of his active temperament and habits, and he has the sympathy and best wishes of the whole community.
On Saturday night, the police visited the boarding house of Mrs. PURVIS, at the corner of Exchange and High streets,
and took therefrom a young girl, whose parents reside in the town of Ogden. She was lodged in jail till yesterday,
when her father and brother came to the city after her. From all we hear of the circumstances, she needs careful
watching to keep her away from doubtful associations, and total ruin. For the present she is saved, however.
As the publication of her name can do no good, we withhold it. Possibly she may do better in future.
OFF FOR THE SOUTH
There was quite a gathering of gentlemen at the Central Depot last evening to bid adieu to Mr. John B. REILLY,
for several years past a clerk in the dry goods establishment of J. Z. NEWCOMB & Co., but who has recently
accepted the tender of a situation in a house engaged in the same trade at Mobile, Alabama.
Mr. REILLY has made many warm friends during his residence in Rochester, all of whom regret his departure, but
hope to hear that he has bettered his condition by this change of location.
Two young men who would go out on the river above the dam last Sunday, in a small boat, were capsized, and rumor
says came near drowning. Some of their friends deny it however, sad represent that they were rescued without difficulty.
CHARGE OF FALSE PRETENSES
A young canal man named Robert ARMSTRONG was yesterday arrested on a charge of obtaining $7 from LEWIS & PHILIPS,
wood dealers in this city, by false pretenses. As we understand it, ARMSTRONG belonged to a boat which was bringing
wood down the Valley Canal for that firm. The boat sunk and ARMSTRONG was sent to the city after $10. He obtained
only $7, which he paid over to the Captain, but it is alleged that it was not properly applied. Why he should be
arrested and not the captain of the boat, is not clear to our mind. He is in jail.
