EXECUTION OF A CLERGYMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 20 September 1860

EXECUTION OF A CLERGYMAN. The Rev. Jacob S. Harden, a Methodist minister, was hung at Belvedere, New Jersey, on the 6th. He seduced a Miss Dorland, married her to save his reputation, and soon evinced a passion for a Miss Smith, who lived at his boarding place. Five months after marriage Mrs. Harden suddenly died. In his confession he admits having given her arsnic and laudanum at 11 different times. He first gave her the poison when she was sitting on his knee. He purchased an apple, which lie cut into halves, upon one-half of which he spread arsenic, and kindly invited her to partake of it. She un- suspectingly ate it, remarking that it appeared to have something gritty in it. He very coolly replied it was "nothing." Subsequently he administered the deadly drug to her again in milk and water, &c. He died firmly. The New York Herald describes the execution as follows : -" With arms closely pinioned to his aides, and the fatal noose artistically coiled about bis neck, be wal...
