The family consisted of the mother, aged about thirty-Cve, a daughter aged about thirteen, another girl aged Blue, aad a little boy, Harry, aged two years, a mere roxaat, and a man serTaat, "named Jesse Cousins, need sevefltv yearn. So stupendous was the crime, so unnatural and horrid In it eon summation, so apparently uncalled for by purposes oi roooery, anas is was generaur oeuerea to nave oeen ins aoi oi soma oe Der ate maniac Strengthening this suspicion was the fact of the father of the murdered family being in the rouatie asylmm at Dayton. It was thought that in some etraaae freak af mental nalluernattea he had esc sped free his confinement and performed ' the dreadful deed. This suepleioa was taa- medlatety dlspeueoT by tne intelligence rrom the aeylpm that Mr. Room had not left tt, and could not have been out en that eventful night. Before proceeding with the history ef the subsequent arrest connected with this affair, the reader will pardon us in giving an account and plat of. the Boose residence, where the most horrible of all tragedies was enaeted. - tot noooA Rxneacn. Turnlnr ' avid from th highway about one mil from Dearflald, th Rooea residence stands some two hundred varus distant zrom th turnpike. A comfortable looking residence of itself, b-was made more so by the careful hand of the parents, who years at nee had embellished it with evergreens, and with all those appliance which tended to glvs comfort to those growing up around them. aUslertnne nad, now ever, fallen upoa its roof. The father was a stranger te his family, and the wife and mother beneath the cloud and gloom struggled on amid her adversity, with Maree a thought save for thf welfare of those now doubly intrusted to her charge. What of light end Hie tt was la her power te bestow made up the sua of her daily daUea. These were certainly enough. A large barn nad other oauotuea ar around th zeaidenee, bat decay and the bnt r Urn ia anna them, while fences leaains: outof shape bespeak the absence of those who might have given a more cheerful aspect to it, even if the taint of innocent blood wa not upon its walls, abiding there to this rery hour.

The murderer has gone. There t aa angry sky above him, and the verv clouds must hare shamed biai for hi flight as heaped away. Blood unto hi hands, the brand ot Cain indelibly engraved upea bis forehead, and the curse of the first murderer forever raakiiag ia his tosom, there was no more peaee on earth for him. Some eye must yet remain unclosed which looked upon hi most foul of foul mur-dvr, and fear doubtless new rendering him a greater aupplieant Cor pity from bis own con-scknee than the little children whom he had oi mercilessly slaughtered spurs him on. With the darkness ne is gone, and the day reveals no suspicion aa te the perpetrator of the terrible deed. . TBI VICTIMS. Tb us, on the night of December 26, was per-petraud the maeaacre of Jessie Cousins, an Id man of sixty years; of Alice, aged twel re; Francis, aged nine; aad little Harry, a babe of some two years, children of John Rooaa, a farmer in comfortable circumatances, so far aa worldly possessions were concerned. Of the attack on Mrs. Room, who miraculously live after so savage aa aasault, aad th escape of little Kettle, the child of seven years, our readers are now aware. The object of the sasassin, by every action it has been proven, was only that of robbery: but being recognized, most likely by the first of hi victims, his work of death began, and knew ne ending, until, as h believed, not one was left to identify th hand which wrought the de-atructiOB. The course he had taken was wrapped in mystery,aad it seesned for a time that the blood of the vtaiima would cry for 'vengeance in Tain. rwa bam already auaded to tne sttayauaun Which was pointed and dispelled to the rather. Tbe pablie aad the authonUea were agala at sea, sad fears were expressed that the murderer would escape detection, unless Che truth of that old proverb would be verified, ' Murder will out." Then came the arrest of Charles Keever on the evidence of the conductor that on the evening of that memorable night he rode np the' railroad oa the forward pait ef the engiae. But good fortune smiled on him, and he waa able to prove a complete afiWby unimpeachable witnesses. The conductor ws mistaken a te the time by a week. Hire, again, JuaUce halted, and aiaeet despaired of retribution. Detectives were set te work, but it was reserved to Detective De-vi J Hay, ef Dayton, who ferreted It out and worked up the guilt of Samuel Covert ia a most masterly manner. The manner la which It was done tbe assiduousness with which be tracked Covert from the time he was mustered out of the army, en August 16. up to and for several days after the murder, is deeervlag of all commendation. As aa In aura ace agent, he lives in Lsbaaea. topping at that popular hotel, te Evans Bouse. First secerning saUsaed as to how the deed was coeamltted that the flood first murdered tbe oM man Couains, then Mrs. Rooaa. then the Infant, then Praoeia, and thee ei sing Alice, aged thirteen, and by brute force be undertook sad secoeaplisbed his heinous purpose on her chastity, breaking down the lounge ia tne scuffle. The villain was not yet content, for with another blow of the batch et he.nded her precious life. The detecttve discovered hew he escaped through the window, leaving the bloody impress ef four Hearers on the all, and the tmprtmion 3r th thumb gone. Before this, however, ve different persons . were arrested for this crime, but no evidence appearing to sub-atantiate the easkton, they were all die-charged. Among : this number eras David 13 ir-tsi af this eUv, arrested en the affidaria ef Samuel Covert..,. It waa proven that Covert bad cemitted perjury, aad Hick was honorably acquitted. Covert waa con rioted for the nry, and sentenced to the penitentiary for one year.

We visited the prisoner in his lonely cell-He w aa dressed in black pants, check shirt, black neck kerchief, and blue stockings. He sat reading a newspaper, but whea we entered he rose, took our hand, aad gave it a friendly ahake. The following i hi own description of himself: ' I am flv feet nine and a half laches in height; I waa twenty-nine year old last April; my weight on hundred and seventy pounds; I hay blue eye, aad light brown hair; I am of a nervous temperament, but ia this matter I am strong and firm." The prisoner is not s man who would be ra,n,m aaturiar. far there Is certainly nothing mallcioua or devilish in his countenance. His forehead is remarkably low, ahll the back part of his head bas almeet a straight ascent. He is an inveterate ehewer ef tobacco. He eats heartily, sleeps soundly, and Sheriff Butler regards bis condition, In the amount of flesh and physically, quits as good as whea he waa first arrested. About a month age Covert" was depressed in spirits, aad about three weeks since be decIUed to eat, and refused to eat a nxiutaful for seven days. Covert claims that b did not do this to atarv himself, but because he had lost his appetite. This seven days' a hot! nop ea, however, had no effect whatever upon him.

Covert era married la 1860 to a young lady residing In Auglaize County; but while in the army he waa informed of her untaithfulnete, aad at once separated from her, aad has never seen her since. He has been told, however, that daring June last, aad while hia second trial waa progressing, that she died, leaving a little girl, who. after' to-day, will be fatherless sad BDOLherleea. He baa never had aay r-hacklea orehaina on him since hia sentence; hut there bas been a continual watch over htm by one of the jailors. Visitors hare been nsmerous; someday there being at basis hundred persons admitted to his cell, and at no time has admission been dented to his Bister sad relatives. On yesterday ne requested te see Mrs Kooaa that he might, before dying, declare to her his Innocence of tbe murder of her family. .

But the meager inaaenta waarn can do ajteanea iron the career of Samuel Covert have to be narrowly scrutinized before a sufficient motive Ut discovered for so vast s crime.

Vfe believe there is a reasonable doubt ss to bis guilt, not only In our minds, but In tbe minds of many ot the beet citizens in the county of Warren. t. The character of some of the witness a who convicted him, In the main, is not thought te ba trustworthy by suar of our etttscas, being persons of had repute. The principal witness in hltcenvtatioa Is a woman whose reputation Is not good. 8. The murder ef the Boosa family, ever since It wa committed, seems, In the minds of many, to be ahrouded tn myatery. 4. The circumstantial evidence oh which he was convicted Is of a very complicated nature so much eo that there appears to be involved in it some intellectual perplexities. These, Governor, are some of the facts in the case of tbe trial and conviction of Samuel Covert, W now ask your Excellencr to commute his puniabmeht to Imprisonment in the State Prison for life- He then will be aeoure against harming society, and, perhaps, be of tome service te the State. Further, there are some of the undersigned who believe conscientiously that capital pus lahment is incompatible with our holy Christianity, and contrary to the spirit of tbe Savior of tbe world, who said, "I did not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them to seek and to save." Governor, we have beea told by some that you have been a General In th army, and, therefore, would not eommute Covert's punishment because ou yould not have aay conscientious scruples in regard to taking life. We hope otherwie. We know youhave been ia the service of your country, and se- S ratted yourself manfully, for which wc tank you; but we believe that you, in common with all good men, look forward hope, fully to tbe time when war shall cease, aad the sword shall be beaten Into a plowshare and the bayonet Into a prunlng-hook, and na-tiooa learn war no more, aad the widows' tears dried op, the cry of orphan hushed forever. Now, we submit the above consideration! to your aenae of duty and justice, aa Chief Magistrate of the State ef Ohio. GOV.

In addition to thia effort aad Interest Inbenau -r the prisoner, several private letters weie written, aaataw that he might be respited, or bis sentence beevea. muted te imprisonment for life. On Wednesday morning Mr. James Boosa, brother to John Bocaa, the head of the Boosa family, and who took a prominent part la prosecuting Covert for the murder of his relatives, went to Columbus aad saw tbe Governor, to whom he made s statement of tbe case, and expressed a wish that if the 'Governor could find it consistent with his duty, ancTaa he (Boosa) waa opposed personally to capital punishment, he would suggest a commutation of the sentence. Oe Wednesday evening Prosecuting Attorney Allen went to Columbus and laid before the Governor all tbe farts. The Governor replied: "I do not yet see any sufficient eaure to either respite Covert or eommute his sentence. I do not ssy now that 1 will not do so, for should any sa tin factory proof be givtm me that there la reasonable doubt of Covert's guilt, I should respite him for a few days, until a fair aad full In vestigation could be had. I have yet received no such evidence, for' repret en tattoos in petitions that the petilionera are oppoeed te capital punl.hment la not a ahowlng su in dent ts admit of my interference with the fin dine a and sentence of the Court and jury." it win ibua be sera mat tne probability oi any relitf from the Governor is very slight.

Has face tamed to an ashy paleness, his lip quivered; while his eyes stared around bis cell wildly; eold drops of aweat stood ea his forehead, and hia heads felt like lumps of ice. He received the Intelli- reace with a long sigh, aad while his entire frame shook sad trembled with nervous and mental excitement, he said: "All right, gen tlemen. 1 am content. I am Innocent. lam not the maa; and, with a smile, settled down Into his usual indifference and stoical careieaaness. He made other references to his case, and his entire readiness to meet hi doom, sad again he was left te kit own meditations. tbb axacanoM.
