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.

Lampblack and Oil the cause of Fire. --An English manufacturer states that one of his workmen placed a ladle, which had been recently used for the purpose of measuring linseed oil, upon the top of a cask of lampblack, and a few drops of the oil fell into the cask. One evening, just before closing the works, he discovered a very disagreeable smell, and searched the factory to ascertain the cause, and, to his surprise, found the whole of the black in the cask resemble a large ball of fire, and there is no doubt that before morning it would have burst into a flame, and caused not only the destruction of the stock, but of the entire premises. My plan has been (says the above manufacturer,) since the occurrence, not to keep more black in stock than is required for present use. Wood or canvas painted with lampblack and oil ought to be carefully looked to, at least until well seasoned.
Thanksgiving in New York. --Mayor Wood has issued a proclamation calling upon the people of New York to observe Thursday next, the 29th inst., as a day of thanksgiving and supplication, in accordance with the orders of the Governor of the State. The Mayor thinks that there is little to be thankful for, either in the political, commercial or financial aspects of the country; but he invokes the people to supplicate for protection from the evils which threaten us.

Blown away. --A few days since, one of Mr. Wm. Sears Wood's employees, while tinning a house at West Point, on the line of the York River Railroad, had a large roll of the metal blown around him by the force of the wind, and thus enveloped, was hurled to the ground, (some twenty-eight feet,) sustaining a dislocation of the shoulder, besides receiving considerable bruises about the head and other parts of the body, which will disqualify him for work for some time.
