TWITCHELL. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 26 March 1869

TWITCHELL. The /ntW/i' o'iio-r of last Monday contains a column long editorial in regard to John S. Twitchcil. comicted for the murder of his mother-in-law, Mrs. Hill, and sentence.! to lie executed in Philadelphia on Thursday the Hh day of April next. The article expresses the belief that he is innocent of the crime, and mentions also that the editor of the Easton Argus has lieen to see the unhappy man "and came away convinced that he was innocent of the murder." Having also read the sub:,taaee of the testimony, as it appeared in the papers duriug the progress of the trial, it seemed to us, that, although the cirenmstatici-s formally proven combined to make his guilt apjicar probable, we could not have lieen sufficiently satisfied to render a verdict of guilty, had we l.ecn one of the jurors, aud in view of the grave importance of the case, not only to the prisoner, but also to the entire community, which seeks the life of no man whose guilt is not clear and unquestionable, i...

OIR HAKRISBUKU LFTTER. HAKUISROKO, Tnesduy, Mar. "•'., ISfi'J. DEAK FATIIEK ABRAHAM : The acts allowing parties in interest to be witnesses, «nd creating a Hoard of State Charities, were the only public measures of importance which passed the Senate last week. Most of the time was taUeii up in considering private bills, a large numV-r of which passed Anally. THE SIII.ITIA, In the 1 iwer branch of the Legislature, the act for the formation and discipline of the Militia of the Common wealtV, was considered and passed. It reduces the minimum to thirtyfour (34), and the tax to maintain the organization from $1 to 50 cents, to lie imposetl on all liable to military duty and not members of a military company. Neither of the above have as yet passed both branches. THK IiltOISTJiV LAW is now under consideration in the Senate.
