The following notice \of this horrid deed, with some particulars not heretofore stated, is now published in the hope that it may yet contribute to the detection of a monster not fit to live. It is still involved in mystery. On Monday, the 4th day of April last, Evelina- Cunningham, a young wsomara who lived near Charlestown, in Cecil county, Maryland, left her> home to go to a rela- tion's not far distant, taking with her a child of a relative, about four years old.— She had to pass a short distance on the post- road leading from Havre de Grace to Elk- ton. About 11 o'clock in the day, she stop- ped at a house on that road, where she was invited to wait awhile, and told that the man of the house and his wife intended go- ing the same way, and would walk with her- She replied that the child walked ve- ry slow; that she would therefore go on, and they might overtake her. These peo- ple were delayed, and .did not leave the house until about 1 o'clock. While on their way, they observed a strange man come out of the woods, .near where Miss Cunningham was afterwards found, carry- ing a bundle, and wearing a dark colored surtout, who asked, as he passd them, \How far is it to the ferry ?\ (Havre de Grace fer- ry.) No uneasiness was entertained by the family which Miss Cunningham had left, it being supposed she was~at the house she in- tended to visit. On the following Friday morning, the cEild, in almost a famished state, was discovered standing at a branch by a neighboring woman, who, knowing the child, asked it \ Whom it came with ?\ It answered, \ With aunty.\ \ Where is your aunty ?\ The-child, pointing to the woods, said \ up there.\ \ Why did not she come with you ?\ \ Aunty is asleep,\ it answered,\ I could not wake her.\ Per- sons went immediately to make search, one of whom following the tract which the child had made in going to and from the branch, was led directly to the lifeless body of Miss Cunningham. Ofthe horrible and blood chilling spectacle which it exhibited, we are permitted only to say, that on her body and neck were found eleven wounds, as from the stabbing of a knife; her hands were cut, as if from seizing the weapon; and the blood- vessels on one side of the neck were cut in two. From the extended position of' her arms and hair, she appeared to have been diagged by the feet from the place where she was first wounded. She had worn black woisted stockings, which were pulled off and taken away : whether they were mark- ed or not, is not known. She was found with one shoe on. The child said it had put on one of aunty's shoes, but could not get on the other. It could give no oth- er information of the inurdct than that \a big ugly man cut aunty with a knife.\— The little sufferer had continued with the body from Monday till Friday, ],-nving it only to go to the branch todrinK, but often crying and begging its \aunty\ to awake and get up. The lower part of a shirt sleeve, evidently torn oil, was found at the spot, and is still kept. One John Conners, a native of Canada, and a shoe maker by trade, was arrested in Virginia on the 1st June, and haslately been tried in Maryland for the above murder.— He was acquitted on full pr of that at the time the ciime was-perpetrated he was in Millersburg, Kentucky. This man's arrest quieted inquiry as to others. On the day of the murder a sltanger crossed the ferry at Havre de Grace, who paid the ferryman a striped cotton jai ket with sleeves, for his ferriage. This man had with him a bundle, and wore a dark colored surtout, supposed to be of bottle green. A man in a similar dress, and also having a bundle, was over- taken on the road bv a boy in a eic, and as- ked the boy to let him ride. On being re- fused, he got into the gig, and continued in it till they saw Miss Cunningham at some distance, and whom they would soon have met, when the man jumped out and sat down on the side of the road. On the previous Saturday night, two men, a woman, and a child, who said they had come from the Potomac canal,-lodged at a house in Cecil county, near the Chesapeake and Delaware canal. About 12 o'clock on Sunday, being a stormy, snowy day, they left the house for the canal. Eaily on Mon- day morning, one of the men returned, got his bieakfa&U and took from his bundle sev- eral articles of clothing, which lie left, say- ing they belonged to the other man, who re- turned and took them the next riav. The woman and child did not return. The man who return<°d on Monday morning soon left the house, to go back, as lie said, to the Po- tomac canal, and pa c sed on the post road from EJktnn towards Havre de Grace. He wore a dark colored coat, and had w ith him a bundle. On or about the 13th April a man was ar- rested in Baltimore, who, on his examina- tion before a magistiate, stated to the ma- gistrate and a gentleman present, that he saw thcyojmg woman who was murdered in Cecil county; that he was sitting in the wood on the road side when she passed by; that he remained in the neighborhood till Friday, when she vvris found; that in passing along the road he was afraid, being a stranger, that he might be taken up, and asked a gen- tleman on the road tojet him ride in his car- riage, or remain in company with him, the latter of which he did ; that he saw the fu- neral, and was sorry to think that so fine looking a young woman should have been so cruelly treated; fe finally, that be came from Havre de Grace to Baltimore by water. This man, when arrested, had a dark sur- tout and a bundle with him. What is yet more strange, he told the magistrate and the other gentleman, that he came from Cana- da, and that his name was John Conners. The boy mentioned above, and another per* son, being sent fot, said he was not the man they had seen on the road. He was dis- I executive proclamation /pr th(<3.'detection of the destroyer of Miss C.

More anon.— Noah's Adv. /w^' Adventures of a Note. —On the 16th inst. a certain house in this city, then in good cir- cumstances, called at the Manhattan Bank, to take up their note, which according to their memorandum book, fell due on that day, for gl2,500, but on application at the Bank, they were assured by the clerk that no such note was there; they then applied to their indorser to learn what Bank it was lodged in, and were informed the Manhat- tan Bank. Back they went to the Manhat- tan, and receiving the same answer as be- fore, they desisted from any further search. But on the 21st inst. they received a notice, that the note had become due, and was so on the 16th but that it had been entered by the mistake of the clerk as arriving at ma- turity on the 21st. But alas J in the mean. time the house had become bankiupt, ow- iiv. r to the misfortune of a distant firm.— Quere.—The endoiser having been by this accident exonerated, who bears the loss ?— Ev.

It is he who demonstrates the mode and practical pow er of extending our knowl- edge and increasing our happiness, and not he who might have dreamed or wished that such could be clone, who confers benefits or merits the meed of gratitude. We shall therefore pass unnoticed the futile contro- versy on original notions about connecting the Waters of our Lakes with the Ocean, as totally irrelevant to the subject. It is aeon- - trivance of morbid and spleenful -minds, who would rather that the greatest Wpjk, of our Nation should descend to posterity with the superstitious inscription observed by a n •— Apostle on an Athenian Altar, than award ' due merit to cotemporary benefactors.-*- They only whose talents developed the means, and whose exertions, perseverance and influence, induced the liberality of the : State to commence and consummate tlie , great 'enterprise, particularly deserve the • gratitude of the People on this occasion.'* BALLOTS.—We have seen enough of\ the late election to convince us, and every *' reflecting man will say the same, that-when-\ <• ever $he county officers are to be eleete'd they should be put upon a separate ballot from the members of assembly. IndefedJ We \ see no good reason why the \Governor :Lt.' Governor, Senator &, Assemblymen^houldT\ not be put upon the same ballot, for he that > is entitled to vote for the one, has also th'e right to vote for all. Whoever will take th'e pains to examine the canvasses in the.seve- ral counties, when they shall have been of- ficially made, will see that as regards the ba!- „ lots containing the Sheriffs, Clerks, Assern- blymes and Coroners, there has been much. of what -may be called cross-firing. That is to say, the ballots were a complete med- ley ; for many candidates for local offices cared but little who their neighbors voted for, so that?their names were on the ticket' and again we see that some candidates for the assembly have not hesitated to support their political opponents for local offices it by that means they could further their owli t views. This peil-mell mixing of candidates fdjj state and county officers, has created MUfcfy v»« tf ,tl,.< o ^^\SiS^^^tTfSSj^^f M^mm&mms&M wft.&»'*ft-&$§
