I WHO CLAIMED TO BE Sin ROGEB CHAELES TICHBOBNE, WAS CONVICTED OF TI CHIME, AND HAS JUST BEEN LIBERATED AFTER NEABLY ELEVEN YBABS' IMJPBIS- ONMENT. Interest in one of the most remarkabl sases on record is revived by the liberation f Arthur Orton, who has completed his term of imprisonment, the usual deduc- ions for good oonduot having been made he ex-oonvict is usually known as the 'Tiohborne claimant.\ He has been a no- orious public character for many years and will continue to be an object of inter- est down to the time of his death. His crime was the first instance in English legal records ia which an impostor as- umed identity with a known person. The stake he played for was a heavy one, title and vast landed estates; and the degree of success which he attained previous to the collapse of his policy was remarkable, es- peoially so as persons of culture and stand- ng, as well as myriads of ordinary people, elieved that \the Claimant\ claimed no more than his just rights. This theory is still held by many, and the interests of the false \Sir Roger\ and his family are safe in the keeping of good-natured credulity. The story of Orton's oareer, crime and con- viction, surpasses romance in its interest. It is best introduced by the relation of a few facts respecting the man he claimed to 36. Roger Charles Tichborne was born Jan- uary 5, 1829, in the city of Paris. He was, after his father, heir to the title and es- tates of his uncle, Sir Edward Doughty- Tichborne. After receiving the rudiments of education in France, he entered the Ro- an Catholic College of Stonyhurst, Eng- land, as a student. When twenty years old, he became an officer in the British Army. Three years after that time he iade an offer of marriage to Kate Donghty, mghter of the gentleman whose heir he ras. She refused him, whereupon he sold iis commission and went to sea. On June .9, 1854, he landed at Valparaiso, and on Lpril 20, 1854, sailed from Rio de Janeiro for New York. The ship was subsequently lost with all on board. At the death of Sir Edward Doughty-Tichborne, Roger's father succeeded to the estates; and when te died, June 11, 1862, it being believed ;hat Roger had been lost at sea, Alfred, his ronnger brother inherited them. Alfred ed February 22, 1866, three months be- re the birth of his heir, who will take the estates and title upon attaining his major- ity. So far there seems to be slight or no >hance of the most audacious assumption identity with the lost Roger being successful. The opportunity was due to the incredulity of the mother of the missing heir. She refused to believe that her son was dead, and in 1865, ad- vertised for him in English and Austr- in papers. The next year, Arthur Or- n, a butcher, known at the place of iris •esidence, Wagga Wagga, Australia, \aa Thomas Castro, claimed to be the mis- ing gentleman. He employed an at- orney, who opened a correspondence th the mother. In consequenoe of this le sent Orton alias Castro, money where- ith to pay his passage to Europe, and oeived him in Paris, January, 1867. •he professed to reoognize him, and hence- rth, until the time of her death, March 12, 368, treated him as her long lost and re- ored son. In bis relations with rich and tled persons, after going to Europe, and making claim to be Sir Roger, Orton car- ied himself with considerable dignity. ?he true Sir Roger probably would have ost something of the easy gentility of his arly years, after years of romantic iso- ition from the Bcenes of his youth. From ae first the Btranger's appearance divided ie family, relatious and friends between 'ho believed and those who did not ac- pt his olaims to be Roger Charles Tich- >orne. In 1867, \the Claimant\ began an action >r the recovery of the Tiohborne property, t was at that time worth above $120,000 year. Before the case was finished it was lortgaged, so heavy were the expenses of le litigation. The case was begun in May, 171, about four years having been spent sending commissions to South America d Australia. 'It lasted 103 days, terrni- ting in the non-suit of the plaintiff, arch 6, 1872. The tables were now turned. Criminal Toceedings were opened against \the Uaimant\ who was charged with perjury, legions of friends assisted him with gifts f money and by buying bonds payable •oui the proceeds of the Tiohborne estate hen he should become their owner; The period from April 23, 1873, to February 28, L874, was taken up with the second \Tich- orne\ trial, which resulted in the convie- ion of the prisoner, as Arthur Orton. In is name he was sentenced to fourteen 'ears' imprisonment. He was sent first to lillbftnit Prison, from whence he was re- uoved to Dartmoor. The remainder of s term which was shortened considerably l reward for uniformly good conduct, waH aent at Portsea Prison,, with the exception f the lust few days at Pentonville, Lon- lon, from whence he was liberated. An .drearer has settled an annuity of a hun- Ired poundR a year on him. He has re- ived an offer to appear on the stage. As a iuu-keeper what is left of his ambition ould be abundantly gratified. A few sentences as to why the jury con- oted him. They were convinced by the testimony presented, that the prisoner Arthur Orton wns five years younger than k>ger Charles Tichborne.* It was shown lat he was born June 1, 1834, the son of reorge Orton, and that he was named irthur. When he returned to London he ught out the Ortons at Wapping. His sduoation proved to be inferior to that of Etoger. He could not speak French, which Eloger spoke better than he did English. 3ome physical differences between the two en were found to be of one inch in their might, ears shaped very unlike, and the ibsence of tattoo marks on Orton, whereas Roger had been marked in his youth. Ex convict Orton iff a pleasant-looking an, gentle in his manners and disoourBe. here is an air of refinement about him, difficult to account for; but whatever of yBtery has characterized hiB career, nough is known of him to warrant the oncluaion that his oonviction was just.

Shrewd and Able Judges All agree that the present condition of affairs show that business is in a yery critical situation; reviewing the large list of failures, of bankrupts, of withdrawals from business, and the retirement of long-established firms, we feel gratified of having stud ied to please, and kept nothing undone to induce a lively and permanent trade, and paid minute attention to our customers'wants.

Ready-Made Cloaks, are sold any- where 50 per cent, less than fashionable custom work. Our Cloaks are all cut and made by the best Cutters and Makers possible to seoure; out from patterns of the very l»t«t idea, trimmed in the most fascinating style, of the best material out of our stock, all of which will be shown with pleasure. Also, as in former years, will have Cloaks m$ free of charge, if material be bought at our store, should ladies* prefer to make Cloaks themselves, giving them a choioe of about 20 different patterns to seleot from. Our Mail Order Business I By giving our most careful attention to this department, a large order trade has been bnilt up. We fully appreciate the importance of filling orders oorrectly; and all wbo send to us for goods can rely upon getting what they ask for and the full value of their money. Having been successful in suiting buyers, wbo are not able to visit Plattsbargh, we hope this season to gain many new ones; as well as to retain all those with whom we have had dealing, but kindly request customers to write orders plainly and explicitly with full directions, sending tham by mail direot to our establishment, as it came again and again to our knowledge that orders sent by messengers as well aa stage drivers are only delivered where they can seoure the largest fees or commissions.
