[From tliii Cincinnati Gazette, November 10.] The Torpedo Murder nt Clncliiuntl. ATIIHEST OK IV. II. ARRISOS, THE PERSON FOU THE. MCHDER OK DR. S. II. ALLISON WIFE. It will be generally remembered that the ear in Cincinnati was stunned, on the morning the 27th of June last, by the alarming that the superintendent of the Marine hospital, on the corner of Western row and Longworth Btreet, and his wife, had been made tbe of the design of some miscreant, who, in guise of a present, had sent, them an " machine," which, exploding while beinj; blew twenty-two pieces of balls, slugs, and of iron into the legs nnd body of Mr. nnd otherwise so horribly mutilating him that died before morning. Mrs Allison was BO shockingly mutilated that she died the next day. Fruitless search has been made for the alleged perpetrator of this diabolical act, until a clew obtained on Saturday last, when a gentleman of city, named Q. F. Willnrd, found in his letter addressed to O. F. Willord, from a Willets, of Muscatine, Iowa, on matters concerning his pecuniary affairs. The letter thus received evidently had fallen wrong hands, and the person who received it handed it lo Miles Greenwood, who the matter to Captain tloke and Marshal who at once suspected that the letter was Wm. H. Arrison, the alleged murderer. On Monday morning Mayor Snelbnkcr, Captain Deputy Marshal Lee left on the cars for Davenport, nnd Muscatine. They arrived at the latter place on Tuesday evening,;and after making diligent inquiries, found out that Arrison was clerk in the ot a Mr. Dau^herty, and passing tinder ilie of Willets. On Wednesday morning early, officers by the assistance of the deputy sheriff, procured a warrant for Willel's arrest, not, however, until they had satisfied themselves that was William H. Arrison. About tight o'clock they went to the drug store. Arrison was on a chair with his back to the door, newspaper. The Sheriff nnd Mayor Snelbaker, at the same time placed one hand on each and calling him by name, announced to him he was their prisoner. Arrison started to his and appeared greatly excited. He then declared that Arrison was not his nnd nl first objected to accompany them, but a few moments reflection he consented. The news of the arrest of "VVillets as the man soon spread through the town of Muscatine, much excitement was manifested, but an entire willingness to have him brought to Cincinnati examination was manifested by the citizens. In two hours after his arrest they had handcuffed and on his way up the Mississippi on the steamer J. Mcfeee, to Rock I stunt!, they took the cars for this city. They arrived Cincinnati last evening, at half past seven and lodged Arrison in tha N i n t h street house. Arrison is very low spirited. He wns under a strong guard the whole of last will be remembered that the grand jury already found an indictment against him, and probability is that he will have his trial at present term of the criminal court. His brother nas been in the city several days. Upon searching Airison's trunk, they found book and other papers with his name plainly written thereon. When he left this city he wore whiskers, which he has had shaved off since departure. He 1ms been in the employ of Daugherty, the druggist, about three months, and always managed to avoid suspicion.
