Humphries, the man under sentence of death for the killing of his son, at Kingston, in June last, and who is condemned to be hung on Friday, the 29th of September proximo, and who broke jail in this place, on the night of the 23rd, was recaptured at or near Kingston, on the night of the 30th. – He had in his possession, it is said, a double barreled shot gun and a hatchet.  It is further stated that he had shot at his wife three times since he broke jail.  It seems that he is bent on killing his wife, and perhaps, others too.  Instead of leaving the country and fleeing to parts unknown, he went right back to the stage of his former bloody tragedy and rearmed himself for the work of death.  It is to be hoped that he will be so manacled as that his second escape will never be effected.  The security of his wife and the community at large demands that this be done.
