Frfcra tha Cincinnati Commercial, Aug. 5.
People who Imagined that they had
heard the last of the famous Tichborne
case, in which a vulgar butcher laid
claim to one of tho largest estates and
noblest titles of England, have been
undeceived. The claimant, so far from
being crushed out by the evidence at
the protracted trial, the result of which
was to bind tho so-called Roger Tich
borne over to stand his trial for per
jury bas now taken to a new role. . lie
has been for months engaged in the do
nation business on a large scale, and the
Tichborne claimant's fund has been
steadily swelling from the prouse con
tributions of the credulous, running all
tho way up from sixpence each to fifty
pounds sterling. This prodigal be
stowal of funds is to -aid the claimant
In defending the suit against him for
perjury, and in proving his title to tho
TUEWBOXG MAX 1IAXOKD.
Asido from the romantic elements in
this case and the always ready popular
sympathy for one in humble life who
claims to have len keptoutof his own
and is suing for it, the notable point is
that it furnishes one of the most re
markable cases of disputed personal
identity on record. Such cases always
possess an interest for the public. The
annals of crime furnish many instances
in which the identity of persons ar
rested and charged with offence has
been proved by apparently conclusive
testimony, yet the iersons so proved
guilty have afterward been, found
wholly innocent, unci tho witnesses all
mistaken in the man. In 1700 a gen
tleman named Iesurques was . tried,
convicted, and hanged at lhris for
highway robbery, no less than four
witnesses testifying to his identity.'
Other witnesses were brought forward
to prove an alibi; but one of those hav
ing been detected in a lWsity, the jury
refused to believe all. and
prisoner In guilty. . The
went to the scaffold protesting
nocence. Four years afterward the real
criminal, one Duboscq, was arretted,
and found to possess a marvellous per
sonal likeness to Lesurques. Kvidenee
of a conclusive character was produced
against him and he was hanged, an ac
complice testifying to his guilt and to
the entire innocence of Lesurques.
A YOUNG MAN'S ESCAPE.
In 1845 a singular case of mistaken
identity occurred in a trial at Lowell,
Massachusetts. Some wretch had as
saulted little girls picking berries in
the fields near that city, and; a young
man was arrested two weeks after, a
Mr. Houghton and his wife, who had
ran to the rescue of the girls on hearing
their screams, swore positively that tho
prisoner was the same man who had
run away In the bushes at the time of
thearsault. The two girls were taken
separately into a room, and each of
them pointed out the prisoner , as tho
them. Other witnesses, to the number
often in ail. swore to his identity with
a man whom they had seen on the day
before the crime near tho spot. On the
other hand, Uie prisoner, brought six
unimpeachable' witnesses who'testlried
positively that they were' with him in
a remote town in New Hampshire at
the very time the assault on tho girl-
was committed. This proved alibi, to
gether with tho good character of the
young man charged, secured his ac
quittal the counsel for the Government
admitting the alibi to have been clear
ly made out. liut the remarkable re
semblance of the prisoner to the villain
who had committed the crime, and the
fact that the witnesses for the Govern
ment who Identified him were all mis
taken, caused the Judge who tried the
case to remark that it was almost suf
ficient to shakeall confidence in human
ASTONISHING FALSE PRETENCE.
A case more nearly resembling the
Tichborne claimant, being that of a
lost son returning to his parents' house,
and recognized and believed in as their
true son, while all the time an impos
tor, occurred at Bangor, Maine, in 1849..
The claimant in this case was a young
man 24 years of age, named Luther
ITau.se. a wild fellow, son of Luther
llausc of Troy, Maine, who had work
ed at Bangor for two or three years as
a common laborer. He imposed upon
the family of James I la use (to whom
neither he nor his father was related)
by claiming to be their long lost son.
and obtained from them money ana
clothing to a considerable amount, for
which suit was finally brought against

Iih children testified that he ; had a
son by the name of James Rowland
Iiause, who left home about three years
since in company with a neighbor of
his, gone to New Bedford, and there
shipped on a whaling "Voyaee in a ves
sel Dy the name of Copia. The first he'
(Esquire Iiause) ever heard of the de
fendant was through neighbors of his,
who told him a few months before that
they had seen his missing son Ilowland
in Bangor, and had asked him if his
name was not James Rowland Iiause.
Ho replied no, he was Luther IIau.se.
They insisted, however, that he must
bo ilowland, and urged him to return
to his father's with them. This he re
fused to do. A day or two later, Mr.
Roberts, a neighbor of Mr. Hause, went
to Bangor, and was charged by Mr;
Hause if he saw his son Rowland, to
bring him home. Mr. Roberts found,
thevoune man Luther, brought him
to his own house, and sent for Mrjand:
Mrs. Hause.., On .their, arrival Luther
addressed the former as -father," and
then turned to Mrs-'Hause;" three his
firms about her neck and. kissed her.
Mrs. Hi did not at first x-fieve tlmt.itj
was ner sun. . xojs t s am f i.u i r were
different in colori and " his complexion
differed still, more' widely. In speak
ing to Luther she said : "Is il possible
that this is my long-lost sou Rowland V
He answered, Yes, mother, it is me."
She then said to him "If you are my
son you have got a scar on your knee. '.'
He pulled up his pants and .showed a
scar on his knee. She then said : "My.
son had a scar on his breast, that was
burnt in Mr. Andrew's shop.,r Ho
pulled away his shirt bosom and show
ed a scar on his breast. 8he then said,
Mv son Rowland had a scar on his
neck, under his ear." He held up his
nock and showed a Bear in that place I
Us neck. She .then said, "One of
'- ' -
thy" fcoii'a ttk iiipptid aVeHho' other.41
He said, "Oris bfilllno is So." (The
young man then went to the house of
Mr. Hause, and Mrs. Hause asked iiim
to show her the room where he used to
sleep. He went up stairs to the jroom
where her son slept, and after some
hesitation threw himself ujon a bed
standing iii the room and said, J'Thls
Is my old bed.'! Mr. Hause and his
wife were" then fully satisfied that he
was their son, and provided hiinf with
clothes, Ac He remained ati their
house some five months, and the longer
he stayed the more they were satisfied
he was their son. j j
A daughter of Mr. James Hani tes
tified that she kept school at Brewer,
(opposite Bangor), and that she did not
at first know the defendant when ho
called to see her. Doubting his identi
ty, she said to him: If you are my
brother, you have a sear on thi head,
where I hurt you when you were a
little boy.". She then felt of bU haad
and found a scar, and became satisfied
that he was her lost brother. She so
testified before the Court.
Several of t he neighbors of MrHause
took; this young man to be ltowland
Hause. Young , men who hal been
shool-mates with ltowland, talked with
Luther about past-times, and became
convinced mat ne was itowiana iiause.
On the other side, there were Several
doubtful circumstances connected with
the young. man,. which led thej father
and mother to feel continual uncertain
ty about their putative son. And one
day there caine over to Coninna a Mr.
IX) w, who positively recognized the
youth as Luther Hause, who belonged
m -Troy. Mr. Thomas Gardiner also
tolcj ; Hause that he recognized , the
young man as Luther. Hause, lhaviug
lived near his father's seventeen years,
and beeli very lam i liar with hiip. Mr.
James Hause now became so stirred up
that he determined to settle tlio ques
tion of ideuty publicly, and took out a
warrant agaiust : Luther for obtaining
goods on false pretenses. He was ar
rested, and Mr. Seth Hause of 'Iroy be
ing summoned, appeared at the trial,
and there recognized the prbfmer as
his son. .
That was the end of the airfo. liut
the trial created unexampled iiiteret J
over 400 persons were present, and ap
parently the majority of them were in
favor of Luther, behoving him to be
the long-lost boy Rowland. iBut the
sovereign mob, onf the au
of the court, husiled the
prisoner out of the. way. and although

Salisbury, N; C, Aug. 13. In the
Senate district comprising the Coun
tries of Wilkes, Iredell and Alexander,
where thtf Republicans have , gained
1.C00 votes since the previous State
election the excitement is still at fever
heat,- and acts of violence are quite
frequent. M The residents are chiefly
whites, and a thorough canvass of the
district was made by Jas. H. Footeand
Tho. N. Eloper, the Republican Sena
torial candidates. On Sunday last, while
Mr. Cooper was in Church at Holly
Springs, t Iredell county, a mob of
Groeleyitcs i from Olin, .armed with
clubs and pistols, assembled at the
place for the avowed purpose of killing
hiiiH . He was escorted from Church by
his friends, and conveyed in safety to
his residence, two miles off.
: Two days before that E. B. Drake, of
can, whoWently pronounced fQr Graut,
was attacked near hi3 office by a crowd
of ruffians, headed by John Houston,
and brutally beaten in tho street. '
At Beaver Creek Township, in vv lines
county a shocking affair occurred at
er Creek Township, in VVilke
the closeof the campaign. D. M.' Fur
ches, Keublican, and "XX", Bobbins,
a Democrat, had made engagements to
speak thire the latter in the evening.
By 9 o'clock most of the Greeley ites of
the township were in front of McNeill's
store, armed with revolvers and knifes.
Among them was a man named Vanoy,
who began to quarrel with Jonathan
Stout, a Republican. Vanoy, madden
ed by the cool and passive behavior of
Stout, loudly awore that he would
either kill him or eat his breakfast in
hell. He attacked Stout with: a pole,
striking ;iira with it several times, and
Stout retreated, facing his assailant as
ho did sb. Vanoy then threw down
the polef and, knife in hand, sprang at
Stoat, who, quick as a flash, drew his
own knife, and as the two met, thrust
it Into Vanoy's breast. "The d d ras
cal has filled mo," Vanoy gaspedout.
and instantly expired. The blade had
pierced his heart. Stout has disappear
ed, but (t is believed that he will give
himself jup. There was nopublic speak
ing in Beaver Creek after that.
At TaVlor's Spring, Iredell county,
James I,L Foote was assailed by John
Osborne, a Greeleyite, from Olin Town
ship, as'he was I resting under a tree.
Osbornd stealthily approached Major
Foote and kicked him savagely on the
head. The Olin! gang drew their pis
tols, but Foote's friends rallied and
drove thejh off. r
- In Wilkes county, at Antioch Town
ship, ait unprovoked assault, was com
mitted upon John Johnson, an inoffen
sive colored man, by Wesley Souther,
because'he voted the Republican ticket.
