line fifty fathoms and dropped it again,
but it stopped, at the sanio mark, and

was nine hours, twenty four minutes, and

very-pretty, intelligent girl of IiTsh parentage-,
(16 year old.) named Honors Cochran, am)

Carpenter, of No 75 Green street in tbal city.
Toe circuintanceare briefly astfolluws : li
appear ihat This girl ha resided with Air. Car
penter's family about nine month; thai she
was formally of the Roman Caibolic faith, and
that she bas a mother ol the same belief, resi
ding at No. 6 Grove Place, in ibis city, and a
brother younger than herself, residing in Ash
tandr Man "drat about nior months since
the girl renounced the Unman l.'atholie fitb
and wa baptised al a Free Will Baptist meet,
ing house, where she has since aueuded wor
ship with ihe lamily of her employer ; iha4 on
Monday last .she was jisiled by her mother,
and went out lo walk wiih her, that when she
eiurned she said Ibat her mother took her lo
the house of the priests, who squeezed her hand
ao hard that he hurl her, and, only lei her go
when she promised to return lo see him on
the neit Monday ; that on Saturday the brother
arrived in Charlesiown, and she accompanied
him to this city lo see her mother, since which
time nothing hat been heard from ber.
When the mother was interrogated, she said
that bits and her son left- Honors on Saturday
evening at six o'clock, at the Filchbnrg Kail
way station, and thai then Honors slated that
he was going lo Cbarlesiown, When she
was loid ibat there were fear thai her daugh
4 had rf wirb seme fatal accident, he said
she wss not afraid of thai, Irom which it appears
that she know more than she is willing lo tell.
It is believed that the girl is .confined by per-
ot ww are opposeu 10 ner present religious
belief. A boot a week since she chose Mr
Fosdkk, of Charlesiown, for ber guardian, but
the paper had not been signed at the lime of
her disappearance. Mr. Carpenter gave in
lormaiiuu to the authorities of the circumstan
ces, and a search instituted for her had been
unsuccessful up to last evening. Boston Times

than you laid it off on the western side of your
plantation, and a partition fence wa buill be
tween us by mutual consent and at our mutual
expense. 1 then went to work, and having
been laughi habits of industry and economy
wniie unuef your control, I pursued Ihe even
tenor of my way for many years, doing husine

My primary object in addressing you at this

that this i ihe doctrine of some, and from ob
servation I begin lo suspect that the doctrine is
not so erroneous as it appears paradoxical.
"iou remember, 1 date say, a conversation
we bad on this subject about two year ago
wheu you were al my house on a visit. And
in order to test the truth of the doctrine, you
proposed lo me, you recollect, thai we should
enter into a co partnership fur the construction
of a Road that said road should commence at
ihe centre of the' old plantation, and thai yo'u
would. build it lo Ibe partition fence if I would

there is danger of ibis doctrine being disprov.

You will please reflect on this matter. And

If the man who sold Harper the liquor was

rather more reasonable to hang him. As il is,
however, ihe crime of murder rests on the beads
