The Woman tcAj Murdered Gooodrich.
A correspondent of tbe New York
Herald baa visited Ply month, Mass., and
had an interview with tbe mother and
schoolmates of Beisy King, alias Kate
Staddard, now under arrest, charged wkb
tfce murder of Charles Goodrich, in Brook
lyn, N. I. I he correspondent sayi ;
Although the ;stories of the singular
tragedy had been read and commented
npon here, no on could connect the -name
of Kate Stoddard; with the yonthful and
handsome Betsy iKing, who, until, a few
years ago, wan not only the belle, but the
model of propriety ot the whole town.
f he papers-received In Plymouth on Mon
day eon 1 11 i ued the- first news that Kate
Stoddard ai.d Betsy King were one and
ine same person. 1 1
1 be news was con veyed to tbe family by
4 neighbor, when; Mrs King was agoniz
ed with grief. Kate was born in Plv
mouth, and so were ber father and mother
before ber. and jshe may, therefore, be
considered as a praty direct dependent
of-the little band , woo came over on tbe
May .r lower two ,'or three centuries sjro.
She is the youngest of a family of two
daughters, ber eider lister being married
to a Mr Bartlett. a worthy citizen of Hyde
Pari, Massachusetts. It was her sbter
aud not Betsy wHo taught school here in
Plymouth county, although Betsy is Said
to possess a far superior education. She
is a graduate of tne high school, and dur
ing her tuition she was particularly cele
brated as a writeri While she was clover
she was always regarded as sly and art
ful. The circumstances of her first goincr
away are hi keeping with her lingular
and charactertic conduct ever since. One
day she suddenly took it iuto her head to
go to Boston, and ber parents fitted her
eat and give her 1 00 in money . It is said
by some of ber lady associates that there
was a young Boston "runner," wbo bad
become acquainted with her during one
of his peregrinations herein Plymouth,
and that it was to; share herfortnnes with
bis that she left; her bouse. She hsd
cultivated a romantic disposition by a lib
eral persual of story papers and novels,
and it is more than likely that cheap liter
ature is the prime cause of all her woes
An interval of several months then
elapsed, when her father was informed
that she was sick -in a Hotel in Boston,
and when he wept to her assistance he
4l?uUbTrTten rVcW skfnrT'W
months she begajn to improve, and at
about the time she was to beturtied out as
1 cured" s'ie look It into her head to leave
without going through the usal formalities
of .1 discbarge. Securing a eooplo of
dressos and other clothing belonging to
one of tbe matrons, she stepped into a
buggy that was standing near the institii
tioo and drove off to a relation's in North
stated seasons and under regulations. Tbe
fact that over two hundred thousand ani
mals were sscriUced in ; less than twelve
months, for so small a sum of money as
their skim produced, created no little
excitement and indignation in the cities of
tbe plains, and in the bide markets of this
eountry and in Europe it necessarily led
to the cheapening of the article : and at
present the hide that the hunter conld
bave obtained 5 for a year ago' be would
be glad to sell at 81.50. The markets
everywhere are glutted, and it will be
some months, at least until the fall, before
the stocks on band are worked off.
Several European governments, taking
advantage of tbe low price of theses kin-,
are manufacturing them into knapsacks
for soldiers. Tbey are largely used in tbe
French and Belgian armies, snd army
contractors everywhere are large buyers
for the purpose of making tbem up iuto
all kinds of regimental material, such as
strap, cords, harness, Sec. They are
used in this country principally for mak
ing a cheap iort of boot god horse collar ;
but their introduction u connection with
machinery and general woikshops is only
a matter of time. Tbe tanned skin is said
to turn out inferior leather in consequence
of its porous character, : but dealers who
profess to know, say that tbe fault is not
with the bide, but wi'h the hunters and
tanners. The hunters sometime kill the 1
buffalo at a season when his hide is al
most worthless for manamcturing purposes
and makes no attempt at preparing or
even preserving it.
ALL THAT IS DONE A8 A GENERAL RULE
is to wash and dry tho blood wet akin,
and in that Hate it is brought to the near
est railroad station and shipped off by the
agent to Chicago and elsewhere. The
tanners as a rule bave never experimented
on buffalo bides, and they follow the
same treatment as for tbe farm bull and
cow. 1 here is no doubt wbatever that
buffalo skins can be used for almost all
purposes to which dressed leather is sp
pled, and that improvements can and will
be made in their preparation that must
lead to their becoming a valuable article
Most of the skins shipped lo Chicago
are consigned to Wolff & Epstein, Kiusie
street., snd by tbem forwarded to their
customers East and in Europe. They
came chiefly from Sargebnt, a station on
the Kansas Pacific railroad. The balance
of the hides are principally handled at
Leavenworth, Kansas, aid are sent thence
by local dealers to the different markets.
The ordinary weight of a dried cowskin
is from eighteen to twenty pounds, and of
a dried bull skin forty to fifty pounds
Of course the price varies, but it averages
of shipment and transport, commission,
and all expenses of handing have been
taken out, tjie hunter may calculate on an
average of abont occ doner per skm
From the shelves of the modem library
ideas have been gathered respecting tbe
killiuz of buffalo that ate totally at vai-
iance with the facts. The hunter, a sym
