Henry BILLMAN, committed suicide on Thursday night of last week by hanging himself to a bed post. He was from Clinton Twp., this county. His wife and family were away from home. Coroner Ephlin was sent for, an inquest held and a verdict given accordingly.

Since the interment, however, suspicions have been awakened, and doubts entertained as to its really having been the work of his own hands, and upon a further investigation of the circumstances connected with the melancholy affair, we understand that his own son, John, has been arrested, as the perpetrator of the act, examined and committed to the county gaol for further examination. Whether this is true or not we cannot say, but we sincerely hope it may prove incorrect.

At Hughesville on Tuesday last. As the Battalion, was on parade and was entering the field, Mr. Elijah SANDERS, a resident of Muncy Creek Twp., who had been by some means got behind his company, attempted to get over the fence at or near the place where David M’CARTY, of this Borough, was stationed as a guard. M’CARTY in attempting to resist the forcible passage of Mr. SANDERS placed his gun against the breast of SANDERS with the intention of pushing him back, a tussle ensued, and the gun, which unfortunately contained a charge of powder, went off and the contents entered the right side of Mr. SANDER’S bowels. Dr. George HILL was immediately called to his assistance who carefully examined and dressed the wound, but without effect, as he survived but 14 hours when he expired, leaving a wife and two children to mourn their loss.

An inquest has since been held by the Coroner and verdict rendered that Mr. S. came to his death by the discharge of a gun in the hands of David MCCARTY. We may also state that Mr. MCCARTY has given himself up to the proper authorities and entered bail in the sum of $2,000 for his appearance in Court. As this affair will under go a judicial investigation we do not think it in place to say much upon the subject, but so far as we were able to learn, and we took considerable pains to get at the particulars, we have no hesitation in giving it as our opinion that it was purely accidental and without the least intention on the part of Mr. MCCARTY (Note – two spellings of M’Carty/McCarty)

David BARTOE, a very respectable and industrious citizen of Wolf Twp., came to his death on Thursday last under the following circumstances. It appears that he and his oldest son left home on Tuesday last for Danville in search of work, and on reaching there they were employed to quarry stone. On Wed. morning they commenced work and continued up to Thursday, at 11 o’clock AM, when a large body of stone gave way and falling on Mr. BARTOE so injured him that he survived but about 15 minutes after he was taken out. His son and another individual were also injured though not seriously.

The remains of Mr. BARTOE were taken through this Borough on Thursday afternoon, and were doubtless interred yesterday. He has left a wife and a large family of children to mourn their untimely loss.

A fatal affray took place in the vicinity of Jersey Shore , on Saturday night last between John F. HUNT, of Lock Haven and John STEWART of Nippenose Valley, this county, which resulted in the death of STEWART. It appears that HUNT was on a visit to STEWART’s, with whom he had been engaged in business in Lock Haven some years since, and was endeavoring to effect a settlement of the same, but being unable to agree a quarrel ensued, and at about 11 o’clock at night HUNT concluded upon leaving. On going to the field after HUNT’s horse, a second quarrel was had and several blows passed between them, without effect, when HUNT drew a dirk knife and stabbed STEWART in the heart, the blade entering the left breast and cutting off a rib. STEWART was found dead on the following morning and HUNT having repaired to Jersey Shore was examined before Justice LONDEN, and committed to the jail of this county for trial. They were brother–in-laws, and HUNT had received a slight fracture on the right arm, received probably in striking at STEWART.

Mr. FOWLER, not far from SUTPHEN’s tavern in the town of Niles, was cruelly murdered by his father. It is said that the old man, who was in the habit of drinking to excess, on Monday night retired greatly intoxicated. Waking about two o’clock, he commenced abusing his wife, who at length, the door being fast, made her escape through a window, proceeding to her son’s, a short distance for protection. The son, wishing to protect the house, proceeded thither; but upon opening the door, was stabbed by the father completely through the body with a large sharp iron, and upon falling, blows were repeated, so that by the time another son had made his appearance, no less than twelve horrible gashes had been inflicted. The son is said to have been a worth man. There is no hope for his recovery.

Mr. J. HILL, an Engineer on the Reading Railroad, was accidentally killed last week, by two trains coming in collision.

We received a letter on Monday last from a doctor in Birmingham, dated 23 April informing us that Fletcher ESTABROOK, well known in this county as a music teacher, has committed suicide that morning. A small note lay on the table requesting that the doctor write to the Editors of the Luminary and ask them to tell his few friends that life was a burden, too hard to bear and that he asked the forgiveness of all his scholars for the injuries he had done them.

He came to this county about 18 months ago. Possessing a thorough knowledge of music and fine talent for imparting instruction, he was not long in getting up several classes. His conduct and deportment as a gentleman, for the first year, we think was never questioned, but an evil hour overtook him – he fell from his former position in society and the remainder of the time he spent in this part of the country, was characterized by dissipation &c. His last act in this county was that of being married in jail, doubtless to evade the law, for the same night on which he gained his liberty from jail by marriage, he took the northern stage for parts unknown, leaving his wife behind.

Two children, son and daughter of John SOANS, of Moreland Twp., the former aged 2 and the latter, 4 years, went out, on Monday last about 10 o’clock in the forenoon, to a neighboring wood to gather whortleberries, and becoming bewildered were unable to find their way home. They were first missed at noon of the same day and diligent search made for them immediately, but without success until Tuesday morning when the little boy was found uninjured in an oat field on an adjoining farm, belonging to John FRANCE. The little girl; we regret to say, was not found until about noon on Tuesday, when she was discovered in the Creek, a lifeless corpse – the vital spark having taken its flight. Her death, it is thought, was produced by a fall from a ledge of rocks, under which she was found, which it is presumed she attempted to climb around.

Court Causes

19 June 1847

By reference to the news in today’s paper from the army, it will be observed that Col. M. SOWER Jr., late of Lock Haven, Clinton Co., bearer of dispatches to Gen. SCOTT, was most inhumanly murdered in Mexico; and that Gen. HAMMOND, of Milton, died on the steamer, on his way from Vera Cruz to New Orleans. It was a short time since that the general’s son, Lieut. Thomas HAMMOND, was killed in a battle in New Mexico.

At about half past four o’clock on Sunday afternoon last, George F. KULL, of this place, committed suicide by hanging himself, in the garret of his own house. On the announcement of this melancholy and mysterious affair, Justice WHEELAND was sent for; who on arriving at the spot, immediately summoned a jury to examine into the matter and make a report. After retiring for some time, the jury brought in a verdict that the deceased came to his death by hanging by the neck.

The deceased, before going up stairs to commit the deed, told his wife he was going to lay down, when, in fact, he repaired to his room to commence the work of destruction, by first cutting a severe gash in his arm with a pen-knife, sharpened for the occasion. After his arm had bled for a few moments, he walked up into the garret, and with the assistance of a rope fastened to one of the rafters, hung himself. His wife having observed several queer movements about him during the day, concluded all was not well and went immediately up stairs into his room, and observing a quantity of blood on the carpet and not finding him there, was much frightened; knowing that he was in the house somewhere for he had not come down, she ventured up into the garret and behold there she found him – but lifeless. She rushed downstairs on beholding this dreadful and heart-rending sight in an instant and gave the alarm; in the moment the whole town was around. The deceased visited Philadelphia last spring, and, his wife says, since his return he has not been the same man. Other persons have noticed a difference in his conduct since then. The whole affair of so singular an act,is yet involved in mystery; but, it is thought, will come to light in a few days. The deceased kept a Bakery, Confectionary and Fruit establishment and had been doing a very excellent business. He has left a wife and four children to mourn his untimely loss. (Miltonian)

Son of Mr. MASH, of Shrewsberry Twp., Sullivan Co., was instantly killed Friday morning by the accidental discharge of a rifle, in the hands of an elder brother. The ball entered the temple, completely tearing off the whole forehead.

Child Lost – A little girl aged 7 years and 4 months, a step-daughter of a man by the name of WILLIAMS, residing a short distance from Laporte, Sullivan Co., lost herself in the wilderness on Thursday the 29th ult. Mr. Williams had moved but two days previous to that time, to a new building erected in the woods a short distance from the clearing for the town of Laporte. He has access to the road and the clearing only by a narrow path. The little girl had gone to Laporte on an errand, and on returning home became bewildered and instead of taking the path that leads to her father’s residence, proceeded up the road several hundred yards then entered the wilderness. The most diligent search has been made for her by large bodies of men, who went from the settlements, and the only traces that have been found of her, so far as we have learned, are that her bonnet was found in the road near the place where she must have entered the wilderness, and that a place was found where she had made a play house with sprigs and leaves, and a nest made of boughs where it was supposed she laid the first night she was out. She has now been gone more than two weeks, and as the wilderness extends for many miles in length and breadth, it is reasonable to suppose that she has either been destroyed by some animal, or died from fatigue and hunger ere this, and from what we have heard of the nature of the wilderness (being grown up with the most dense thicket) we doubt whether any discovery will ever be made of her body.

Of PA Vol., who was most inhumanly assassinated in his bed at New Orleans, when on his way to Mexico, in the winter of 1847, were brought to this place during this week, and interred in the Warrior Run Burying Ground, Northumberland Co. on Thursday last.

Found – The child of Mrs. WILLIAMS disappeared from Laporte on 29th June last. Diligent search was made then and at many subsequent times, but all in vain, until yesterday afternoon, when some of the remains were accidentally found by Mr. FOUST in coming to Laporte from his house. They were about a mile and a half north of this place. Several persons from Laporte returned with him to make search for and recover the remains. All that were found, and the clothes, which were identified by the mother, were buried in the burying ground at Laporte this afternoon. I was called upon for the purpose of holding an inquest, but on account of the entire decay of the body, it was thought better to dispense with it. Lewis ZANER, JP, Laporte, 17 Sept.

An inquest was held upon the body by the coroner, when the absence of all marks of violence, and the fact that the gold watch, a small sum of money, letters and other papers, and the opera bill of the evening’s performance, which the deceased was known to have about him on the night he was missed, led the jury to the conclusion that his death must have been the result of accident, in some way, and they returned a verdict accordingly.

William, an estimable and worthy young man, aged 21 years, and son of George W. HEITZMAN, of Port Penn, near this Borough, died on Thursday morning last, by the caving in of a well in which he and his father were engaged in digging at their own residence. They had got down about thirty feet, when the son came out for a few moments, again descended (the father being at the windlass) and in a moment after reaching the bottom, the earth gave way, covering him to the depth of about fifteen feet. The alarm was given and a large number of men repaired to the place and every effort made to remove the earth and recover the body. They put in cribbing and succeeded in reaching the body about 4 o’clock in the afternoon, but owing to its caving in repeatedly, they were not able to get the body out until this (Friday) morning. He was found in a standing position, and we learn was not in the least bruised. This is truly a sad affair. He was a member of the Sons of Temperance.

Henry Clay, little son of James HULING, of Hughesville, was drowned in Muncy Creek. It appears the deceased in company with several little companions, younger than himself, left home between 9 and 10 o’clock, unknown to their parents and wandered to the Creek. The little fellow, from the account given by his comrades, divested himself of his clothing and entered the water at a point apparently shallow but terminating in an abrupt offset of several feet over which he unconsciously stept (sic). The others remained upon the bank and when, to use the language of one of them, "he went down into the hole and stuck up his hands, he called upon him to come out." When he sunk the last time they supposed that he was hiding and after waiting some little time they went to the nearest house, the lady of which, they aroused by telling that "Henry had hid down in the hole." The alarm given soon brought a number to the spot. Diligent search was made but nearly an hour elapsed ere his body was found

On Saturday of last evening, Francis STAHL, a native of Germany, and his conduct has always been marked with propriety; but he may have been led to this act by the hopeless condition of his wife, who was insane, and that of his daughter, long confined to her bed by lameness, and unable to utter a word. Francis inflicted dreadful wounds upon the head and throat of his wife, with a razor and hammer. He also severed the throat of the daughter, aged about 18 years. The wife made her escape from the chamber, with her neck dreadfully lacerated by the razor, and her hand battered with the hammer, the handle of which broke in his hands. When the overseer entered, he found STAHL reeling to the floor, and instantly expired – the daughter lay in her gore, on the bed, with her throat cut from ear to ear. The coroner held an inquest on the bodies, and the jury reported in accordance with the facts here related. (Berks County Press)

Mrs. Martha MYERS, died at Kingston, Luzerne Co., the last survivor at Wyoming, on 4th inst., aged 89 years. Her father, Thomas BENNET, was one of the forty white men who built the stockade called Forty-fort, a name blended with one of the darkest tragedies that marks the pages of American history. She was about 16 years old when she saw that fated band, the last hope of the Valley, march forth from this feeble shelter to meet the savages who were laying waste their fields and giving their dwellings to flames. They went forth, most of them, "to return no more forever," for the near four hundred, not more than seventy escaped. Butler, who commanded the British and Indians, with cold blooded audacity, declared in his official report after the battle, to the English Government, that the Indians brought in after the action, as the trophies of the victor, "two hundred and twenty-seven scalps of the Rebels."

A CEMETERY – Through the exertions of Messrs. A. UPDEGRAFF, S. H. LLOYD, O. WATSON and J. F. COWAN, the citizens of Williamsport are to be furnished with a Cemetery for the burial of their dead. The location is within three quarters of a mile of the borough limits, on an elevated piece of ground. The ground has been leveled, fenced in and staked off into lots and walks and lots are offered for sale. This is a praiseworthy movement. When will the citizens of Muncy follow the example set them by their Williamsport neighbors?

Daniel WOLFE, of Mifflin Twp., lost his life by a sad and singular fatality on 18th ult. He has been West, and was returning home through Bradford Co., when he met two gentlemen on the public road, while two others also came up then who were travelling in the same direction with himself; and just as the several parties were crowded together in their passage, a very long tree fell across the road and knocked several of the travelers down, tearing off the whole top of Mr. Wolfe’s cranium and seriously injuring his spine, so that he died after a few days of intense suffering. One of the other gentlemen was also injured some but not dangerously.

The number of persons meeting in the highway, as well as the sudden fall of the tree, rendered it impossible for them to get out of the danger. The tree, our informant says, was some 160 feet long; and the men cutting it were so far from the road that they had no thought it could reach there in its fall, nor had they though the thick woods, heard any persons travelling on the highway. Mr. Wolfe, we believe, was on horseback, as was also another of the travelers. Two were in the buggy. (Star , Bloomsburg)
