An Insane Man Throws Himself Under the Cars and is Killed
An insane man, named Jacob E. TAYLOR, committed suicide this forenoon, a
mile west of Gasport, by throwing himself under the rear coach of the
Express train, which arrived here at 13:30. The deceased had been insane
some fifteen days, and his brother, Henry A. TAYLOR, of Middleport, was on
the train by which he was killed, going to Utica to procure an order to have
the demented man placed in the Insane Asylum in that city. At the first
station west of Gasport, the Conductor and Engineer of the train were
informed that they would be likely to meet an insane man at Gasport, and
they were bid not to let him get aboard. Just west of Gasport, the engineer
saw a man walking on the track and stopped his train, when the fireman got
off the engine and led the man away a short-distance. The train was then
started slowly, when the deceased attempted to get on the forward coach, but
was prevented by the conductor.
As the last coach was passing him, he suddenly
threw himself on the rails, and the wheels passed over him, cutting his head
in twain, and severing a leg and an arm. The deceased was 56 years of age,
and leaves a wife and six children.
Since six o'clock last evening two persons who were
walking on the track of the Central road, within a short distance of this
city, have been killed, and another, a woman, seriously injured.
THAT CHILD ABANDONMENT CASE - The woman Frank JOHNSON(?), who was
arrested in this city a few days since and taken to Brockport for
examination on a charge of child abandonment, was yesterday committed to
jail in full to await the action of the Grand Jury. We were mistaken in
saying that her paramour had been arrested. Such is not the case. We also
did not give his name correctly, but will do so when he is in custody.
MAP OF THE SOUTH - J. H. COLTON, the famous map man, has issued a complete
map of the Southern States, on a large scale, colored, and showing every
town, river, post office, etc. It will be invaluable to those who are
watching the progress of the rebellion. Sold by Adams & Dabney.
In this city on the 4th inst., by Rev. Dr. SHAW, H. _. SHOVE and Miss Maria
McALLISTER, all of this city.

The old barque, City of Rochester, sunk last fall near Ogdensburgh by the
steamer Ontario, is being raised. The vessel was built here many years ago by
Capt. Hosea Rogers, and subsequently sold to a party in Ogdensburgh, who
substituted the name of the place for Rochester, as part of the ship's name or
hailing place. Dp
