MATT. WARD ACQUITTED. The telegraph announced on Saturday that Matt Ward, who had for several days been on trial in Kentucky for the murder of the school teacher, Mr. Butler, was accquitted. We have carefully perused a full account of tho testimo ny in the case, and we do not hesitate to say that in our judgment a clearer , case of wilful murder has seldom if ever been established in a court of justice. The crime of Dr.AVebster was not proved half bo clearly as that of Ward ; end what flattering unction, jurors, who have render ed such an outrageous verdict, can lay to their souls, we know not. A simple history of the homicide as proved, shows beyond controversy the terrible guilt of the accused. On the second day of November, a negro of Mr. Ward, senior, called at the school houso where Cutler taught, and left word for the books of the Ward boys (Rob't J. Ward, Jr. and Wm. Ward) to be sent home. This was occasioned by the punishment administered by Mr. Butler to one of the Wards th...

RAISING T1W ERICSSON. The Tribune gives us some interesting facts in relation to the efforts making to raise the ca loric ship Ericsson, sunk on the Jersey Flak. It will interest our readers to know that M A large canvas is drawn around the ship, the upper edge of which is above the water and forms a sort of bag, encasing the vessel. When the open ports ana dead lights shall bo all closed by the divers, nothing will remain to be done but to get the steam pumps on board and free the ship. The water in the harbor, in conse. quence of the late rains, is very turbid, and the divers are unable to see clear beneath the sur. face. They are thus left to grope their way about the ship, and are compelled, mainly, to feel out the places which are to be 6topped. Should none be overlooked in this rather blind survey of the premises, it is probable the pumps will be set to work to-day on the ebb-tide. Two of them, it is thought, will be enough to free the ship of water sufficiently to get her afl...

When Shovlp Timber be Cut. What is Hie proper season for cutting timber, to inun iU greatest durability, is a question of consider abl importance to the farmer, and avoids unnec essary labor, as it makes a great ditferenco to a farmer if his fences have to bo renewed onco in fire years, when by cutting his timber !u a proper Heason, they would last ten. - ; The timo settled on by tradition, appears to bo in the month of February . Perhaps the reason is the winter istho most convenient sea ton for doing such work, there being more leis ure then than in summer, and becauso it has been Generally done at that time, it is supposed to be the right one. Cut if any one will bo at the trouble of cuttng a tree in tho winter or spring, and one in June or July, and making them into rails and then see which will last tho longest, ho will not need any other argument to convince him that tradition is at fault, in this case at least. Perhaps the case may be different with some kipds of timber, but ...
