| |
| $47,000 REWARD. |
| |
| PROCLAMATION. |
| |
| The Murder of Mr. Benjamin Nathan. |
| |
| The widow having determined to increase the rewards |
| heretofore offered by me (in my proclamation of July 29), |
| and no result having yet been obtained, and suggestions |
| having been made that the rewards were not sufficiently |
| distributive or specific, the offers in the previous |
| proclamation are hereby superseded by the following: |
| |
| A REWARD of $30,000 will be paid for the arrest and |
| conviction of the murderer of BENJAMIN NATHAN, who was |
| killed in hie house, No. 12 West Twenty-third Street, New |
| York, on the morning of Friday, July 29. |
| |
| A REWARD of $1,000 will be paid for the identification and |
| recovery of each and every one of the three Diamond Shirt |
| Studs which were taken from the clothing of the deceased on |
| the night of the murder. Two of the diamonds weighed, |
| together, 1, 1/2, and 1/3, and 1-16 carats, and the other, a |
| flat stone, showing nearly a surface of one carat, weighed |
| 3/4 and 1-32. All three were mounted in skeleton settings, |
| with spiral screws, but the color of the gold setting of the |
| flat diamond was not so dark as the other two. |
| |
| A REWARD of $1,500 will be paid for the identification and |
| recovery of one of the watches, being the Gold anchor |
| Hunting-case Stem-winding Watch, No. 5657, 19 lines, or |
| about two inches in diameter, made by Ed. Perregaux; or for |
| the Chain and Seals thereto attached. The Chain is very |
| massive, with square links, and carries a Pendant Chain with |
| two seals, one of them having the monogram "B.N.," cut |
| thereon. |
| |
| A REWARD of $300 will be given for information leading to |
| the identification and recovery of an old-fashioned |
| open-faced Gold Watch, with gold dial, showing rays |
| diverging from the center, and with raised figures; believed |
| to have been made by Tobias, and which was taken at the same |
| time as the above articles. |
| |
| A REWARD of $300 will be given for the recovery of a Gold |
| Medal of about the size of a silver dollar, and which bears |
| an inscription of presentation not precisely known, but |
| believed to be either "To Sampson Simpson, President of the |
| Jews' Hospital," or, "To Benjamin Nathan, President of the |
| Jews' Hospital." |
| |
| A REWARD of $100 will be given for full and complete |
| detailed information descriptive of this medal, which may be |
| useful in securing its recovery. |
| |
| A REWARD of $1,000 will be given for information leading to |
| the identification of the instrument used in committing the |
| murder, which is known as a "dog" or clamp, and is a piece |
| of wrought iron about sixteen inches long, turned up for |
| about an inch at each end, and sharp; such as is used by |
| ship-carpenters, or post-trimmers, ladder-makers, |
| pump-makers, sawyers, or by iron-moulders to clamp their |
| flasks. |
| |
| A REWARD of $800 will be given to the man who, on the |
| morning of the murder, was seen to ascend the steps and pick |
| up a piece of paper lying there, and then walk away with it, |
| if he will come forward and produce it. |
| |
| Any information bearing upon the case may be sent to the |
| Mayor, John Jourdan, Superintendent of Police City of New |
| York; or to James J. Kelso, Chief Detective Officer. |
| |
| A. OAKEY HALL, MAYOR. |
| |
| The foregoing rewards are offered by the request of, and are |
| guaranteed by me. |
| |
| Signed, EMILY G. NATHAN, |
| |
| Widow of B. NATHAN. |
| |
| The following reward has also been offered by the New York |
| Stock Exchange: |
| |
| $10,000. - The New York Stock Exchange offers a reward of Ten |
| Thousand Dollars for the arrest and conviction of the |
| murderer or murderers of Benjamin Nathan, late a member of |
| said Exchange, who was killed on the night of July 28, 1870, |
| at his house in Twenty-third street. New York City. |

THE MYSTERY OF MR. E. DROOD:

AN ADAPTATION.

BY ORPHEUS C. KERR.

CHAPTER XVI.

AVUNCULAR DEVOTIO

Having literally _fallen_ asleep from his chair to the rug, J. BUMSTEAD,
Esquire, was found to have reached such an extraordinary depth in
slumber, that Mr. and Mrs. SMYTHE, his landlord and landlady, who were
promptly called in by Mr. DIBBLE, had at first some fear that they
should never be able to drag him out again. In pursuance, however, of a
mode of treatment commended to their judgment, by frequent previous
practice with the same patient, the good couple poured a pitcher of
water over his fallen head; hauled him smartly up and down the room,
first by a hand and then by a foot; singed his whiskers with a hot
poker, held him head-downward for a time, and tried various other
approved allopathic remedies. Seeing that he still slept profoundly,
though appearing, by occasional movements of his arms, to entertain
certain passing dreams of single combats, the quick womanly wit of Mrs.
SMYTHE finally hit upon the homoeopathic expedient of softly shaking his
familiar antique flask at his right ear. Scarcely had the soft, liquid
sound therefrom resulting been addressed for a minute to the auricular
orifice, when a singularly pleasing smile wreathed the countenance of
the Ritualistic organist, his eyelids flew up like the spring-covers of
two valuable hunting-case watches, and he suddenly arose to a sitting
position upon the rug and began feeling around for the bed-clothes.

"There!" cried Mrs. SMYTHE, greatly affected by his pathetic expression
of countenance, "you're all right now, sir. How worn-out you must have
been, to sleep so!"

"Do you always go to sleep with such alarming suddenness?" asked Mr.
DIBBLE.

"When I have to go anywhere, I make it a rule to go at once: - similarly,
when going to sleep," was the answer. "Excuse me, however, for keeping
you waiting, Mr. DIBBLE. We've had quite a rain, sir."

His hair, collar, and shoulders being very wet from the water which had
been poured upon him during his slumber, Mr. BUMSTEAD, in his present
newly-awake frame of mind, believed that a hard shower had taken place,
and thereupon turned moody.

"We've had quite a rain, sir, since I saw you last," he repeated,
gloomily, "and I am freshly reminded of my irreparable loss."

"Such an open, spring-like character!" apostrophized the lawyer, staring
reflectively into the grate.

"Always open when it rained, and closing with a spring," said Mr.
BUMSTEAD, in soft abstraction lost.

"_Who_ closed with a spring?" queried the elder man, irascibly.
