Only the other day, it seems, tho crack reporter of a Brooklyn evening paper was sent by an early train to Plaitlield, Now Jersey, there to witness an execution appointed to take place that morning. Upon arriving at his destination he found that tho criminal was not to bo hanged until midday, an arrange ment altogether incompatible with the dis patch of his report in time for insertion in his paper, issued at two p.m. Ho, therefore, hurried off to tho sheriff, and after pointing out that he should bo a loser of ton dollars j if tho man under sentence was not turned off before twelve o'clock, implored that ofli cial to givo orders that the " coremony" should take plnco an hour earlier.
