SMIOHI-ERED IN A CORN CHEST. A melancholy accident, involving the death of two children under very painful' circumstances, took place lately near Balerno. The sufferers were a girl of five and a boy of three years of age, residing with their father, M1L Knox, who is a gardener at Mullany fl?t mills. In the course of the day they left home for the purpose of going, to see their brother, who was working in a garden at no great distance from the house. Under these circumstances, no notice was taken of their absence until a considerable time afterwaras, when the brother on returning from his work stated, in. reply to his mother's inquiry, th.,t I he had not seen them. A search was forth. with instituted, but for a time it proved unsuccessful. At length, however, it oc curred to some one to open the lid of a large corn chest in the 3table, when the ill fated children were found lying dead inside. The secret of their mysterious r?capperrance was now only too apparent. The little creatures...

A MURDERESS AND SUICIDE. A terrible tragedy, followed by a suicide, was committed at New Bedford, America, on 24th March. The victim was Theodore L. Parker, a young man aged about twentyp three years, and the deed was committed by Mrs Lizzle Chapman Although there is no direct testimony in regard to any im proper intimacy between them, yet it is reasonable to suppose such to have been the case. Dr Parker was a regular boarder at the house, and Mris Chapman was in the habit of taking her imeals there, but lived at South Second street. At 6 o'clock yester day afternoon, the couple were together on the street, and Mrs Chapman was afterwards seen to enter her residence, prcbably to procure the weapon with which she commict ted the deed. lthe boarders of the house, among whom were Mr Parker and Mrs Chapman, sat down to supper at the usual time, and about half.past six the two arose from the.table, passed through the sitting. room, and into the front entry of the house.

FEhlTALE GRAND JURORS. Taramie City, Wyoming Territory, boasts of having the first panel with female grand jurors in the world They were sworn on the 7th March A motion was made to quash the panel, but it was not sustained. None of the ladies drawn asked to be ex, cused Chief Justico Dowo, addressing the jury, said, " Ladies and gentlemen of the Grand Jury,-It is a groat novelty to see, as we do to'day, ladies summoned to serve as jurors The extension of political rights and franchise to women is a subject that is agitating the whole country. I have never taken an active part in these discussions, but I have long seen that woman was a victim to the vices, crimes, and immoralities of man, with no power to protect and defund herself from these evils. I have long felt that such powers of protection should be conferred upon woman, and it has fallen to our lot to act here as the pioneers in the movement and to test t.:e question. The eyes of the whole world are toiday fixed upon this jur...
