Execution of a Murderer. --On Friday week Daniel Clifford was hung in the jail yard at Dubuque, Iowa, for murdering a man named Wood, whom he robbed of $27. Clifford was but 22 years of age, yet the murder was so unprovoked that hardly any sympathy has been manifested for him. He refused to eat any breakfast on the morning of the execution, and had to be supported while on his way to the gallows. Arrived there he had to be lifted up the steps. Although the body fell about seven feet when the rope was cut, the wretched man died from strangulation.

Our disasters in Virginia — Wilson and Company Responsible. From the New York Herald.] The sentiments expressed by Senator Wilson, in his speech in the Senate on the 28th of last March, in reference to stopping enlistments and reducing the army, were also the views of Wade, Sumner, and Chandler. It is likewise clearly shown, by the speech of Mr. Wilson, that all our disasters in Virginia were brought about through the intercession and influence of this band of radicals at the War Department, with Wilson at their head.
