The Janesville (111 ) Standard, Extra, brings us a detailed account of the lynching of David F- Mayberry, for the murder of Henry Alger. It appears the prioner had been tried and fouad gull ty, which would subject him to imprisonment for life, instead of death, a punishment which the populace deemed Inadequate to the enormity of his crime. The Standard, of the 13th, says : Durlrs the whole of the trial, and In truth from the day of the discovery of the bedy of the murdered man, up to the termination of the trial, much exciten ent nas prevailed in tne community, it was not of tbat kind, however, which exhibited itself in threats of violence against the prisoner, for all seemed desirous tnat ne snouia receive a fair and impartial trial. But the moral sense of the public was shocked at the enormity of the ciime and the cold-blooded and heartless atrocity which characterized its commission. A feeling deeper than thut of ordinary excitement seemed to have taken possession of the minds of the people, and during the progress of the trial the crowd with which the Court"-house was constantly filled were quiet and ref-pectful But after the verdict of the jury was known, public indignation burst out, and evident signs of an intent on the part of the people without the Court-house to take the administration of justice in their ov n haiids became apparent. Between tlht hundred and a thousand people were as-M-iiil ltd on the hill side. Whea the officer appeared wi:h the ptisoner. a rush was irnde for him a noose was thrown by some one over his neck, but bv a dexterous pull of his right hand, it w is ca-t oil' and caught by one of the officer v lif-n the prisoner, otticers and crowd, rushed upon h f .11 run to the jail. The door of the jdil wa iniioedh-tely closed, and the officers statioued ttemselves at its front Speeches were made against t;mol law," but with little apparent effect. From 7 o'clock until 11 last night, demonstrations were made of an intent to break the jail and bring out the prisoner, but no serious attempt was made. This morning at S o'clock the prisoner was brought from the jail to the court-house, a distance of shout .'en rods, for the purpose of re-celvirg his sentence. A larger concourse of people was assembled inside and out of the court house than were present last evening, and the most inten e exeitement prevailed.. The sentence was pronounced by his Honor Judge Doolittle. His remarks prior to its pronunciation were of the most fleeting character, and calculated to produce an impression upon the mind of the most imdened criminal. But the face of the prisoner during its aeiivery was as motiOLless and impas sable as marble. His dull grey eye was fixed upon me lace oi me juage during its delivery, and grave no indication of feelinar other than thit of listening to a pleasant story of which he himself was the hero. As we lonsred upon him we could not neip exclaiming, " v n.-it a libel upon bi.manity is such a faceT" Ilis forehead is well f rnied and prepossessing, but his eye, that Index of the soul, is such an one as we have never looked iiito before, and wiren vie wed closely, and taaen in connection wua ine formation or his mouth ano chin, are the unerring Index of the heartless character of tneman After the sentence was pronounced a special poiiee ci auoui miny ui our citizens was summoned to assist the officers in re-conducting the prisoner to jail. Meantime the crowd without was collecting and becoming more furious in their clamors for the prisoner. Judge Doolittle cante to the po:tico and made a very'fmpresslve address to the populace, remonstrating against the spirit which seemed to actuate them, and in favor of the supremacy of the laws. He was listened to respectfully, and at this juncture a more quifct spirit seemed to prevcil. This was about 11 o'clock A. M. About 1 o'clock the crowd thinned out and the officers deemed this a llt intrtime to proceed with the prisoner to tail At this hour we were sitting in our office, which is out a noft distance from and commands a view of the jail, and had written the most of the fore- eotna article. U e were then startled bv the crv of 'hang him, hang him:,J when, on stepping to the window, vre saw the officer and prisoner coming toward the jail, surrounded bv the infurated mob. A rush was made for the jdil, the door of wmcn was oarricaoea at once Ov the crowd, and the an ri ach cf the officers cutoff. The officers though resisting the populace with all the energy they possessed, and protecting the prisoner to the utmost ot tneir power were borne down and overpowered. The prisoner wis then almost alone; but he defended himself with suDerhumm strength He fought with the utmost desperation, and oossessine a most athletic nhvsfcal frame. for some ten yards the crowd fell like chaff before h-ni a diow, however, with a bludgeon from behind felled him to the ground, and he was pow erless. A rope was then passed around his neck. seized by the crowd, and a rush made down Court sii e, t . I he prisoner, though dragged in the dust canaht the rope in his hands and thus prevented suanguiuucii at once. Arrived in iront or our or- fice, a uespetate eflort was again made by the offi. cers and citizens to resr-ue him. The rope was cut three times by Mr. Orrin Gurney, who exhib ited tne most determined bravery in his behalf, out as oiten was ne tnrust aside ana the rope re adjusted At this time a scene almost indescribable was exhibiied; a crowd of between three and four thousand persons swayed to and fro. In the cen tre was the doomed prisoner, lying upon the ground above him stood friends begging and struggling for hTS life while a far greater ncm ber were intent upon his death. This sttte of things lasted about ten minutes, and as we looked from our window the hope predominated lhat the frler.ds of law and order might yet prevail. But it was a vain hope. "Hang him!" rose louder than before, and i rush with tne prisoner was made to the cluster of trees on the public squase; the rope re-adjusted upon his neck, and tne other end thrown over the limb of a tree, and for the first time in our life the horrible spectacle of a hull an being hanging by the neck until he ws dead met our view. We have Uius endeavored to give a faint but truthful hl'-tory of the terrible events of this day. We have witnessed a scene which God grant we may never see again. True, the circumstances which attended the murder of Alger were of the most aggravated kind. It was a cold-blooded and atrocious deed It was unattended by a single mitigatory circumstance. But these facts do not justify thecourse that has been adopted. The murdered man was a raftsman. He was well known to all who follow this occupation on Rook river; he had been known to them all for years, and was admired and respected by themall. The Imperial Tke4si;re at Moscow. A let ter from Moscow to the Boston Atlas gives an Interesting account of the Imperial treasure. It is containtd in five rooms, through which we were e-corted by no less than twelve servants, in addition to the director and his attendant I cannot forbtar mentioning the attention which we, as Americans, received, not onlv h"re but throughout all Russia, from those in official capacity, arid the Dare mention oi "Amencaine-' proved an open sesame everywhere. Jo the Imperial Treasury are carefully preserved the platters and salt-rel- lars upon and in wmcn Dread and salt are given to the Emperor on his arrval at Moscow; also a glass, blown by Peter himself, with a ducat blown into the bottom of it. In one room are fifteen crowns, including thoseof thecaptured countries, Poland, Siberia. Astrachan. Georgia and the Crimea Peter the fireat and his half-brother, the foolish Ivan, who were crowned together, hive each a crown of wonderful magnificence They contain respectively 87 and 611 fine diamonds, besides some cf the largest rubies aud eroTzlds known. The imperial crown contains more than 2,600 Bne diamonds, and the ruby under the cross, the largest one known In the world, alone cost 1'20,- Otio silver rubles. Peter II was the first monarch crowned wuh this, and Anne added the ruby bought bv her ambassador at Pekin. The crown of Poland (so called) is here, but it Is merely a crown, n.fcde at Warsaw, to be used in the funeral ceremonies at the burial of Alexander, in 1825. The fcr.eptre of Poland Is a simple piece of aqua marine, two feet long, and by some strange la-taltty is broken In the middle. There is also a throne here, which is studded with more than 2, (HO turquoises, and Is covered with pure gold lur uuuuir luiuiic; ox i oti uiroi dim U1N UtO- tber Ivan, is o! solid silver. A curtain hangs be hind it, under the concealment oi which their ambitious sister, Sophia, dictated their answers. Here are also two saddles of the La. press Catha rine, given her by the Sultan at the peace of 173a and 1775. The first Is all diamonds, the horse shoes silver and the stirrup gold, (for she sat astride.) One topaz, in the martidgal, alone cost 10,01 o rubles. The two are a perfect mass of dia monds, and altogether my eyes ached with magnificence. Pittsbtjkg Abolitionists Making Fools of Thkmsklvks. A ridiculous excitement occurred at Pittsburg on Sunday and Monday, the result of which must have made the participants fel foolish Mr H. B. Northup, of Sandy Hill, New York, arrived In that city on Sunday, and visited the Clerk of the United States District Court on some private business. Immediately a rumor got afloat that he was a slave-catcher, taking measures for the capture of a fugitive; and after lie had tetired to btd, on Sunday night, a committee waited on hlni to ascertain the truth of the report, in order, probably, to frustrate bis supposed intent. He assured them that he was the same person who r leased from sl ivery the kidnapped colored free man. oiornon Northup, ana therefore, solar rrom oemg a siave-catcher, was opposed to the institution One might suppose -bat after such an explanation hll further tiouble would have ceased; but bis story was received with a doubt that he was the rnaii that be alleged, one fellow crying; ot t ttat "he might Jhave stolen the livery of a saint to terve the devil in." Next niorntpg two more eominlltees waited on Mm with inquiries, and Minimow me mnous abolitionism or tne mob was at last r.pptasea. ' ' " " - ' ' ' ' j BALTIMORE, The Iafemal Machines at Selaetopol and in the Baltic. The London Times' correspondent gives the following acoounfcaf tie small mines which the Russians have strewn the ground with about their eut-works: I was shown here (at the Mamelon) one of these extraordinary fougasses, or small mines which are exploded on the touch of the foot, and which the Russians planted thickly about their advance works. A strong case containing powder is sunk in the ground, and to it is attached a thin tube of tin or lead, several "feet In length; In the upper end of the tube there Is enclosed a thin glass tube containing sulphuric or nitric acid This portion of the tube is just laid above the earth, where It can be readily hid by a few blades of glass or a stone If a person steps on it he bends the tin tube, and breaks the glass tube Inside. The acid immediately escapes and runs down tne tin iuoe till it arrives close to its insertion into the case, and there meets a few grains of chlorate of potass. Combustion instantly takes place, the mine ex plodes, and not only'destroys everything near it, but throws out a quantity cf bitumen with which it is coated, in a state of ignition, so as to burn whatever it rests upon. Later in the day I very nearly had a practical experience of the working of these mine?, for an English sentry, who kindly warned me off, did not indicate the exact direc tion tm he found he was in danger of my flring it. when he became very communicative on the subject. One of them blew up during thearmis-tice, but I don?t know what damage it did. We have lost several men by them. While the ground is occupied Dy tne .Russians tney marir mem Dy man nags, which are removed when the enemy advance. It makes it disagreeable walking in the space between the works. The following is a description of one of the machines which are sunk in the Baltic, which have caused so much apprehension among the al lied fleets: Eath machine consists of a cone of galvanized iron, sixteen inches in diameter at the base, and twenty from base to apex; it is divided into three chambers, the one near the base being largest, and containing air causes it to float with the base uppermost. In the centre of this chamber is another, whirh holds a tube with a fuse In it, and an ap paratus for firing it. This consists of two little Iron rods, which move in guides, and are kep projected over the side of the base by springs which press them outwards. When anything pushes either of these rods inwards, it strikes against a lever, which moves like a pendulum, in the fuse tube, and the lower end of the lever breaks or bnds a small leaden tube, containing a combustible compound, which is set on Are by coming in contact with some sul phuric acid held in a capillary tube, which is broken at the same time, and so nres the fuse. which communicates with the powder contained in the chamber at the apex of the cone, and which ho ds about 9 lbs. or XD lbs. At the extreme apex is a brass ring, to which Is attached a rope and some pieces of granite, which moors them about nine or ten feet below the sur face, so that the only vessels they could hurt the gun-boats float quietly over them, and now we know what they are they have b'en disarmed of an their areaa. But tney prove dangerous play things; the commander-in-chief was examining one of the fuse tubes that was supposed to be spoilt, for it was full of mud and water, when he accidentally touched the lever, and it exploded in his hands, scattering the mud into the faces of all presei.t, and literally throwing dirt into their eyes, but doing no hurt. THE GlLMAJiTOX SSAKES AND THE CHiBMID Gibl The parents of the little girl, Oraline Jane Hill, who is said to have been "charmed" by two black snakes, have changed their first determina tion. and are now exhibiting the child and snakes to a crowd at Concord, N. H. On Saturday, they were visited by thousands, by which some S500 w ere made The editor of the Manchester Mirror says: "eh8veseen them the girl is very pretty. only six years old next month. Only the smaller snake g6es with them, and that is four feet three inches and a half long, and is idolised by the girl.

Important Instritct oxs from the Trea stJRT Department The Secretary of the Trea suryhas authorized the collector and naval officer at New York to collect the duties that are to be paid upon articles brought by travellers for presents, Ac , on their an ival, when the vaJuedoes not exceed five hundred dollars. The Commercial says: "This will be a great convenience, as well as saving of time to passengers. The collector and naval officer are to send on board the steamers experienced clerks to assess the duties upon the value, as ascertained by an appraiser's clerk sent on board for the purpose. Almost all passengers bring with them some articles subject to duty by our laws The duty they are not unwilling to pay. but the sending of the packages, which generally contain also clothing, to the public store, there to be assessed, and then to make entry, causes one or two days' delay, and a good deal of vexation, as the parties generally are unacquainted with the forms of the custom-house.

Abduction Case Our local reports contained some days since a account of the arrest In this city oi a young mar named McKendree Dean, In company with. a youthful Miss Talmer, on the charge of abducting the latter from her parents at Georgetown, D. D., on the night of the 7th inst. The facts of the case seem not to have been clearly understood here, and a correspondent of the Washington Star has taken considerable pains to obtain from some of the parties concerned, a full statement of all the circumstances connected with it, as they occurred. The statement is endorsed by Mr. Albert Palmer, father of the young lady, and is as follows: t rom the statements ot Miss Palmer, and some of the other varties implicated, (which statements were made without any preconcerted arrangement upon their part.) it appears that a promise of marriage had been made Miss P. by a youth of our city, some time ago, and they knowing the an- upamy oi tneir parents to sucn an muou, in consequence of their youth, determined upon a clandestine marriage. Accordingly, on the night in question, the young man, In company with a friend, went to the house of the girl's father, and succeeded in decoying her off. Soon after they had left the house, they met with McKendw ue an upon the street, tne oniy person wnose twrae has been used in connection with the abduction. Dean being called by the young man, and re quested to assist, as his friend, readily consented, and accompanied them to a house in Washing ton, where the girl was lert until aoout iu o'clock on Sunday morning. About that time the girl's lover returned to the house, and Informed her In the presence of Dean that he had seen her father; that he knew where she was, and was then in pursuit or her. swearing that he would take her life if he caught her. The girl became alarmed, and her lover being destl tute oi means, the arrangement was men mane tbat Dean should accompany her to Baltimore "as a friend and protector, with the express under standing that her lover was to meet them there on Monday morning, while on his way out West, it having been previously understood that he was going there to reside permanently. And so far from the statements being correct that Dean was her lover, and that they roomed together in Baltimore as man and wife, the girl positively asserts that she had never spoken to him until- the time before mentioned, and that the whole time she was there, except the night upon whiih they were arresttd, (which was early In the evening.) she roomed with a female inmate of the house where she stopped; and upon the night of their arrest she was taken in charge by her father, and remained with him at Lloyd's Hotel until she returned to her home in company with him, and has not seen either of the parties since. From all these circumstances, a discerning public will conclude with us in the opinion that the whole unfortunate affair was more the result of a piece of youthful indiscretion, prompted probably by a desire to appear a litUe romantic, as well as to get married, than any thing else. We are satisfied of this from the fact that Miss Palmer more than once in our presence asserted that the part acted towards her by Dean throughout the whole affair .was none other than tnat ot a mend and protector, and that no manner of indignity was at any time offered to her by him, or either of the others. From these statements of the girl, and some of the abductors, we have not a doubt but the whole distressing (to the families of the parties) afldlr grew out or the childish promises of marriage, the consummatfen of which was prevented by the early discovery of her absence, and the timely offorts of Mr. Palmer and the father of the youth. Poisoning by Flavoring Extracts. The Boston Journal directs attention to the liability which exists and which has several times proved a certainty that the artificial extracts so exten-sively used in flavoring ice-cream, custards and other confectionery, may occasion severe illness. The Journal says: "A case was reported In the Boston Society for Medical Improvement, in April, 1S51, by Dr A A. Hayes, the celebrated c hemist, in which ice cream, flavored with butyric acid ether, caused excessive sickness in several persons, and this, occurring just previous to the intended sending of the same confection to a festival, very properly led to the suppression of the article, and thus, doubtless, a vest deal of discomfort to the guests was avoided, to say nothing of probable danger. Chemical examination de'ectes the above ether as the fid voring material, and the taste and odor of pine apple was crmmunit ated to the cream. Dr. Haynes closed his remirks by the statement "tbat a number of flavoring extracts, equally objectionable, are largely consumed by confectioners as substitutes for the volatile oils, and caes of se vere sickness and alarm are multipliol every season from the practice " Dr J. M Warren said he had been called to a iamiiy in wnicn seven persons had oeen more or less poisoned by custards Idrgely flavored with 'extract of vanilla,- so termed: on analysis, noth ing ofa poisonous nature could be detected: vet undoubtedly, the symptom were referrable to the said extract.
