About two weeks ago, Mary Jane SECORE, an orphan girl of 14, living with her grandparents in Liberty Twp, Mercer County, Ohio, and a general favorite in the community, was assaulted on her way from Sabbath School to her home, taken to a dense thicket in a woods nearby, her person outraged, her throat cut from ear to ear, and her body left to be devoured by hogs. The body was found the following day, partly eaten by the hogs. Two brothers named Absalom and Jacob KIMMEL and a man named Alexander McLEOD were arrested on suspicion of being the perpetrators of the horrible crime, and lodged in Jail. Absalom KIMMEL subsequently made a confession to the Sheriff, in which he detailed all the revolting particulars of the shocking deed. On Monday last, a mob of 3,000 persons, citizens of the neighborhood, surrounded the jail in Celina, the county seat, took forcible possession of the Jailor, disposessed him of his keys, took therefrom the three prisoners and removed them under a strong guard to a wagon and proceeded towards the Kimmel farm some twelve miles distant. Arriving there, they made short work of the prisoners, as the following account will show: Here they halted under a sapling, a rude gallows was erected and halters were fitted about the necks of the prisoners. At this juncture, Elias SECOR, brother of the murdered girl, appeared and pleaded with the crowd for the life of Jacob KIMMEL, the youngest prisoner, 17 years old, expressing his doubt as to his participation in the affair. This appeal was recieved with cheers, and young Kimmel was exempted from the sentence. Absalom Kimmel was much broken down, but McLEOD maintained the same stoical indifference that he had shown from the first. He maintained stoutly that he had never seen the girl, and accounted for the blood on his clothes by bleeding from the nose. He took a testament, kissed it, and called on God to attest his innocence. He importuned them to have mercy on his poor mother and sister, and asked God to forgive them all. Absalom Kimmel adhered to his confession made the day before to the effect that after returning from church on Sunday, June 23rd, McLeod asked if any girls went west, and when Jacob Kimmel said several, they all went in that direction until they came to the place where the girl was murdered, when each violated her person once, and McLeod the second time, after which McLeod knocked her in the head with a heavy stick, this was about midday. They then went to the Kimmel house, and at night McLeod told them that he had been back to the place and that the girl was not dead, but he had killed her. The two were hung till they were dead, while the younger Kimmel was returned to jail. The father of the Kimmels was warned to leave the country in a specified time.
A mother of seven children was murdered by her two sons, aged 12 and 16, at their own home at West Point, Iowa, a few days since. The lady, Mrs. WARKER, had parted from her husband, Dr. WARKER, some time before and on learning of her husband's absence from home, took this opportunity of visiting her children. Last Saturday she expressed a desire to return to her home where she was working at the reform school, but the two sons prevailed upon her to remain until Sunday morning, promising then to take her home. She stayed, and at five o'clock on Sunday morning the two boys murdered her, stabbing her in the back, breast and throat. After killing her, they dragged her body to the barn and covered it up with hay. The youngest son then started on horseback for Fort Madison to telegraph to his father, who was at Keokuk, to come home, that one of the children was very sick. He then returned home. The two boys reported in the afternoon of the killing of their mother, and stated that it was in self-defense and gave themselves up.
