WANTED A SCIENTIFIC HANGMAN - Those who are not born to be drowned may congratulate themselves that they can now be hanged upon scientific principles. The commissioner of emigration has been recently sent to Newgate to study under Jack Ketch, and to obtain the very latest improvements for "Swinging off" from this world those who are too bad to live in it. Calcraft, we are informed received the honourable gentleman most civilly and put him up to all the secrets of the infernal art, which have been duly forwarded to the colonial civil engineer, with the newly invented noose and pinions. The commissioner assures the authorities here that a culprit, by the aid of anything like a skilful practitioner, can be disposed of before he knows where he is.
There are no knots to unfasten, as they frequently do when tied by the Cape hangman, for it is not a rare event here to hang a man twice.
