THE HOME OF CHARLE8 DICK
ENS IN POSSESSION OP HIS
From the London Telegraph.
Tlie public will learn with satisfaction
that, for the present at least, no strange
owner will take possession of the In m-eat
fiadshill, famous as the residence of Chas.
Dickens. The property was put up for
sale by auction yes tenia y by Ml. Tii.-t.
of the firm of Norton, Trial k. Walney, at
the mart in Tokenhouse-yard, and was
bought in by Mr. Charles Dickens, the
eldest son of tlie late distinguished novel
ist, for cC 500. It was scarcely to be ex
perted that any thing like the same enger
n te would be shown to get possesion nf
this house as was exhibited to secure
some one or more of the articles of vert it
which belonged to Mr. Dickens. An
American genilcinqn had, it is said, set
his mini! ou purchasing the Swiss chalet. Ly

Chatle- Dickens occupied a front seat near
the auctioneer. Mr. Tiist began lh plo
eeedi.ngs ol the sale by saying lhat it was
unnecessary for him to attempt to add any
n m nks of his to the praise that had
I. eon written of Mr. Dickens in il his
woiks It was ennrtglt for present pur

lute Mr. Dickens must have, spent thous

think lhat auy one entering ou it reml
spend an additional shilling. What
should he ask for this property I It had
been reported that an American gentle
man as den i mint d to have it at any
price ; but he trusted, for the honor of
this country, that an Englishman would
become the pnssesoif ' estate which
belonged- to Charles Dickens. IL- bud

thousand one hundred -and so
on, by the silent nods of bidders, up to
six thousand six hundred pounds, and
then a pause. In vain did Mr. Trist try
all the varied forms of the auctioneer's art
to secure a higher offer. They would not
go mi. And so the hammer fell to a bid
by a gentleman who was acting for Mi
Charles Dickens. A plot of eight acres

You have but little heed of time, and no

his last baking ; the hnnse of Diodetncs,

and hardened with ashes - are scenes of

THE 0 ALLOWS IN OHIO.
First Instance of the Execution of a lie
brew in the United States He die De
claring his Innocence.
. .-. . i ' .
Norfolk, O, (3d) 8peial lo Cincinnyti Com-
At 2 o'clock this afternoon Bennett
Scorns was executed for the murder of Ja
cob Ooodraau, near Monmeville, in this
h ,,f ,l,e' murderer and his victim being
Hebrew and this being the first hanging
of a Hebrew in the United Stales
8cope was a polish Jew, about twenty-
live years of age. Ooodman had taken
him as an apprentice lo learn the peddling
business, and the murder was for the pur
pose of gaining possession of Goodman's
learn and money. The Hebrews ol this
vicinity interested themselves strongly in
Scope's behalf aud the Governor was be
sei with petit ion lor reprieve, but the ev
idence, though entirely circnmtutiul,was
loo damning to wartant iutei fcreucu and
the law took its course.
Scope has been faithfully attended by
Dr. Mayer, a Hebrew rabbi, nf Cleveland,
who was with him iu his last moments.
lie has obstinately persisted in asserting
his innocence, and on the scaffold, eveu
after the cap was drawn over his faee, he
reiterated ins assertion unit ne was an in
nocent man. The prisoner from the first
has manifested a singular insensibility to
the fate before him, and on the scaffold
conducted himself with cxemplnry firm
ness and decorum. While being pinion
ed, after his ankles, legs and arms had
been tied, and while a fourth cord waa
being passed around his shoulders and
chesty he rinarked with a laugh, "How
many ropes to kill a little fellow like me!"
The execution took place inside the
jail, and Sheriff 'nip deserves credit f ir
the manner in which it was conducted.
The rope used was a very large one, and
was used ou several sum! ir occasions in
t levelled. The body had a fall of six
feet, a id not a muscle was moved after
the drop f II. A few hundred people
were a'sembled on the outside, but the
huge multitude ol half-savage bipnd usu
ally attendant upon such scenes were uot
to be seen. ' j -
Scope has tarn brothers, a brother-in-l.iw
n ml sister living in Buffalo, who
ltWftk'l'.WymrJy4ri Mfy rttty'rWiftetrttt
come t 8fo hiiu or receive the notiy, out
agree. 1 to make up twenty five dollars if
a reprieve could be obtained for that sum.
Scope kissed the Sin tiff and two other
friends ji.ft bef .re the cap was drawn over
his face. Recognising Auditor Randolph,
who stood on a platform above the scaf
fold, he stepped forward and kissed his
hand. Bv reauest of thu prisoner, a
while rap was used instead of a black
me He also made a special request to
have his hair dressed before being hung.
He wore a shirt, 011 the tail of which he
kid caused .0 he written the names of
some twenty or thirty persons w-ho had
visited him and hei 11 kind to him. He
exhibited this queer allium fo one of llie
reporters who conversed' with him, and
asked him In write his name along with
the rest, Mr. Ryan, of this place, called
tn see 'cope during the forenoon, hade
him good bye, and gave him a gold riug
which he wore at his death.
Scope's bearing 011 the seaffold, and his
reiterated aiiiTsriFinn 'aseerf ions of Inno
cence, right - in ihe face of death, have
somewhat weakened the general belief in
his guilt, and many now think t nil, des
pile the conclusive proof, he was innocent
of the murder of Jacob Goodman.

THE II HI 1 1 EST FLIGHT EVER
MADE BY MAN.
The most remai kable balloon ascension
an record waa made in 1804, by Biot and
Guy Lunatic, in Paris. By this enterprise
they endowed science with a series of new
and important facts, questionable before
that time, as they carried with ibein a
complete set of suitable apparatus, and
moreover, an unsurpassed knowledge of
observation and expeitment. They ascend
ainmul nso ten with TBfrfl;

fieri and cold upon them, did not appear
to suffer any inconvenience. In the mean
lime, the pulses of the two experimenters
were mnch accelerated : that of Guy-Lus-
sae, otherwise always slow, 62 beats per
minute, was 80 ; and that or Htot, nata

At a height of 1 1,00 feet a pigeon waa lib
crated ; it dropped down whirling througl
the air as if it had been stone The air
was too l bin, too much rarefied to so-
able it to fly. I hree weeks later, Guy
Lussac went up alone, and attained the
height of 23,000 feet, four and one sixth
miles or too thousand feet higher than the
top of C huuborazn Mountain. Aha bar
ometer was only thirteen inches high, tlie
thermometer 18deg.-ces fahreuheit be
low the freezing point, while at the sur
face of the ground it was 80 degrees.
He left the court-yard of the Conservatire
des Aula el Metiers, in Paris, and after an
serial voyage of six hours, descended near
Rousen, oue hundred miles distant. The
result nf this ascension on Guy-Lussac's
health was very injurious, partially by
the want of air for respiration, combine
with sudden cold, but chiefly by the ab
sence of the accus'omed pressure. At
the extreme height of 22,000 feet his face
and neck were swollen euormonsly, his
eyes protruded from his head, blood ran
from his eyelids, nose and ears, and also
ci me from his lungs, by vomiting; iu
short, his system received a shock from

A WOMAN'S IDEA OF WHAT A
KITCHEN 8HOULD BE.
From the Revolution.
To begin with I would have a kitchen
well lighted ; soir.e, yes, a gieat deal of
tfrnnfy.-Tts lt-n na'd perfect right 'to fie
1 here. That would, of course, necessitate
large windows, and theu I would give as
much attention to the veulil.itiou of a
kitchen as I would do a sleeping-room.
I would have a large circular device sus
pended over the cooking-stove with a hole
in the centre, and a tube leading to the
top of the home, to carry off tlie savory
smell which the process of cooking gen
erates, aud prevent them from permeating
For these smells, however savory and
agreeable, are apt to takeaway something
from the keenness of our appetite; or, at
least cause us to anticipate 'something bet
ter than tlie reality. Then I would have
a large sink, with a permanent soapstoue
or marble wash-bowt for washing the dish
es, and another for draining. I wouhl al
so have an adjustable pipe leading from
the hot-water tank to either of these ba
sins; Besides this I would have sundry
cupboards and closets ananged on the
Wall, so as to be tasteful and decorative,
as well as useful aud convenient
Then I would have a space devoted to
tiny drawers, such as one sees in a dmg
store, and labelled in this manner : Soda,
allspice, nutmegs, cream of tanar, etc., so
that at a single glance I could discover
just what I wanted, without rummaging
to find these things in some out-of-the-way
corner, placed tin re by some untidy Brid
get, This would save oue a world of
care in, w devoted to instructing every
new servant as to all places of things.
Cooking is becoming so complicated now-a-days
that one needs all the arrangements
and as many utensils as a etien ic 1 labo

Oeneroni and unselfish conduct should
be honored a ad appreciated, no matter
when or where. The course lately pur
sued by a celebrated institu.ion of learn
ing In the North, sfFords an Illustration
directly in point. Dartmouth College, in
New Hampshire, bas, for more than a cen
tury, held a position not surpassed for
science and discipline, and in the dislinc
torical associations go far sack beyond
the Be volution. Many of the mighty men
of our country were educated there. It
was the at ma matter of Webster, Wood
bury, Choate, Cass, Red field, Woods, Per
ly, besides a great many others, the first
and foremost men of their day.
This institution has lately done aa act,
which shows that they who preside over
its administrations are capable of rising
above the prejudices and sectional feel
ings which constitute, unfortunately, the
bane of our lime. Dartmouth is Congre
gational in its church tendencies highly
C'alviuistic ia its theology. Yet it leas

ia this city, Hon. R. R. Heath, the high
degree of LL. D. (Doctor of Laws.)
Judge Heath is a member oi the Catholic
Church. Dartmouth it in the extreme
North, and concurs with ibe political sen
timent of thst region in its political views.
It preserves a "roll of honor of its sons
who served iu the Northern army against
the South Judge Heath waa a warm
ud active advocate of the rights of the
South, and abided the fortune of his sec
tion and his people, as he had always said
he would do.
Dartmouth College, casting aside both
religious and national prejudice, bas, with
the aflection of a mother indeed, watched
the progress and treasured the ability,
mitral worth and growlug reputation 01
her far-distant son Judge Heath, and has
bestowed 011 bim the highest of honorary
degrees associated with secular pursoits.
1 he writer of this bas known Judge
Heath for thirty years, and knows that
the honor was worthily bestowed on him ;
but it is uot for the purpose of compli
menting, or drawing special attention to
Judge Heath thai this is written. It is,
that the proper degiee of honor and re
spect may be awarded to old Dartmouth,
for her noble and L'eneaus cours It
nor political bitterness find an abiding
place Withn her walls. It shows that she
feels proud of the reputation and distinc
tion of her sons, no matter where destiny
may fix their abode. This compliment
to Judge Heath is a very high one of
which he may well feel proud. At the
same time he may well feel proud of his
time honored abna matter, Sot her mag
nanimous course. JUSTICE.
