e Murderess of Two Husbands.--The Milwankie Sentinel says it is believed from recent developments that Aun R. Bilansky, who was executed at St. Paul, Minnesota, for the murder of her husband by administering arsenic, was the same person who on the 8th of November, 1849, poisoned Alex. D. Simpson, her husband, in the town of Fayetteville, N. C. In that case arsenic was the agent employed, and after the death of Simpson, his wife was arrested, but succeeded in escaping to Charleston, and thence to Havana, where she remained until May, 1850. She returned to Fayetteville on the 7th of November following, surrendering herself for trial, and was acquitted. On the trial of Mrs. Bilansky at St. Paul, she stated that she had resided at Fayetteville, N. C., where her husband died. The Christian names of the two women were identical, and many circumstances in St. Paul subsequent to her execution have been called to mind which tend to the belief that she and Mrs. Simpeon were the same persons.
Sad Finale of the "Diamond Wedding."--A letter from Cuba says: "It may interest my fair readers to remember that Havana is the home of Signor Oveido, the hero of the diamond wedding. Here he is known as a mulatto, at least half black, and he is said to be a Blue Beard for brutality. He is rich; but as he and his bride are of course excluded from all good society, his wealth can hardly compensate his lady for the slights and seclusion to which her life is henceforth destined. A sad and dearly bought conclusion of so brilliant a bridal."
Dominge Affair. The intelligence respecting the San Domingo affair leaves it very doubtful that Spain has seized upon any portion of it. The appeal to the Dominioans, which has been published, was more than two months old, and a letter from Havana, dated the 28th, speaks of an expedition being only ready to leave. By some it is believed that a revolutionary fracas had broken out, which could not be quelled by the regular authorities, and that aid has been asked of the Captain-General of Cs and proclamations were in type in St. Domingo, and a copy of the proofs, I know, were shown to a distinguished Ambassador at Paris. But this project was nipped in the bud; and Baez is still an exile. The intrigues of the opposition continuing and increasing, Santana has called for aid--first, in order to secure the perpetuity of his own government, and, secondly, to enable him to pay the loan. "This, I venture to say, is 'the sum total of the whole' hubbub that we hear from Havana.'"
