I EYRAUD AND BOMPARD. Gouffe's Murderer B Kevcs He Will Be Reprieved. GtbrieHa Bcmpard has been removed to the Nantene Prison. She bis ex^reestid, however, a w»h to be transferred to Clermont Gaol, and her counsel, Ma.itre Heart Aobett, is about to petition the authorities to this effect. Eyraud is not only behaving admirably in the Prison of the Con- demned at La K'lquette, but ho Las begun to pay special attention to the miuislratkius of the reverend geutleman who acts as chaplain to dooifled fefonc. The murderer of Gouffa is still, however, hoping against hope, and believe." that bis death pecn'tf will be commuted to a sentence of tl ansportation for life. He putt ali possible confidence in the Court of Cassation, which, in his opinion, is sure to grant his appeal, but ie has -nr,t bcpn told that, in addition to his prospects of reprieve from the higher tribunal, lie has ai?o a slight additional chance of keeping his head on his shoulders, owing to the fact that eight of the jurymen who sat at his trial have signed a petition for a coaimutation of his sentdlcr. Eyraud spends hia titr-e in chatting, reading, and compiling a new memorandum on his defence, which lie proposes to submit to his now judge,. should the Court of Cassation qnash the verdict, given in the assize court the other day, He avoids card playing altogether, nti«i does not conceal his aversion for this pastime, in which doomed criininnla are permitted to iiiduige.
