to represent the honest and undisguised expression
of the abhorrence that every unprejudiced, man,
wherever he may inhabit, who loves his country
and her free institutions must.feel.at the proposition
voluntarily, unnecessarily, and unlawfully to in-
troduce slavery among freemen, as the effusion
and dictate of sectional jealousy or personal ambi-
tion. Is it really come to such a pass, as that a
residence in, and the habits of a slave-holding
community so blunt the moral sense, as to render
it incapable of perceiving the enormity of such an
act as that proposed in the case of Illinois ? so warp
the judgment, as to induce it to regard as criminal,
in the highest degree, the attempts of those ivho
seek to stay the menaced plague? If not, and if
the dazzling paradox of Mr. Burke, that the
masters of slaves possessed, from their very condi-
tion, a loftier sense of liberty and personalin de-
-pendence than other men," be not even more false
than we have always deemed it, how dare the Rich-
mond Enquirer (its nameless eahos here and else-
where we disdain to allude to) impute, to us as a
crime the expression ofopinions which we entertain
in common with every man who knows how'to
value freedom-opinions of which none are more
loud or prodigal in the utterance, when discoursing
on abstract theories, or in regard to other lands,
'But it will be said, that there was no necessary
and natural connection between this question and 1
that of the Presidency. This is a fallacy. We
have on other occasions said, that even though
opposed in theory to the extension of slavery, such
was the force of interest and habit in the slave
states, that it would be difficult for them, though
seeing and acknowledging the right, not to follow
the wrong course in this matter. It was as much
to protect them against the effects of their own
passions and supposed interests, as to ward off from
the country at large a blighting evil, that wchave
said, give us for the head of the country a northern
man, because such, a man would feel himself at
liberty, in this Illinois question, to throw the whole
weight and influence of the government into the
scale ofthe advocates of freedom. We have as.
sumed that the Union at large has a deep interest
in circumscribing the spread of slavery, in planting
were that William Stuart on Monday the 4th inst
fell asleep in a stable in which the prisoner was
employed, and whilst so asleep, a silver watch
stock and breast-pin were stolen from his person
The prisoner had been employed that day at the
stable, and no other person was about there during
the time. When Stewart awaked, M'Kown was
not to be found, nor did the former see him until
the Saturday following. In the meantime Stewart
received information that a silver watch had been
left with Mr. Smith, Keeper of the Grand-street
Hotel, for the purpose of being rafflled for. He
ascertained it to be his own, and had it in his
pocket on Saturday when he saw M'K. as aforesaid
for the first time after the felony. He then charged
prisoner with the crime, but assured him that if h,e
would inform him where the stock and breat-pin
were, he should not be prosecuted. Prisoner.
thereupon acknowledged that he took the articles
and that he had left the watch with Mr. Smith,
but had forgot where he had left the stock-and
ireast-pin. Witness accompanied prisoner to the
Police Office, where, upon examination he made
a similar confession.
Mr. D. Graham, of counsel for the prisoner,
intended that this confession, having been made
under the influence of a promise not to prosecute,
was not evidence in the case. The admission
made to Stewart came clearly within the rule, and
he subsequent confession made in the police-office,
nd which was renewed as the consequence of the
previous promise by Stewart, and founded upon
t, must be governed by the same principle. iHe
ited a case in M'Nally cor. J. Dill, and other ca-
es determined- in this court, Mr. G. admitted
he principle as law, that although a confession
sade under the influence of threats or promises
annotbe given in evidence, yet if in consequence
f it property is found, the finding is a fact, inde-
endent of the confession, and may be given in evi-
ence. In the present case, however, the watch
ad been found previous to the confession, and no
discovery of the other property has ever been
sade. The Court recognized as law the doctrine
aid down by Mr. G. with this distinction, that if
tewart was present when the confession was made
a the Police-office, it should be taken as a renew-
l,and actuated by the motive, of the first admis-
on; but if he was not present, it might be con-
dered as independent of it, and as flowing from
ie unbiassed will of the prisoner.
Stewart was thereupon again called, and testified
hat hIe was present at the examination in the
olice-office-so that the testimony of the confes-
on was rejected; but from the other facts in the
*se the jury were led to WblieY.e__atha l-ioner
Counterfeiters.-Much has been said of late of
.e precious mines of North Carolina. A gang of
ounterfeiters who had circulated a report that
icy had discovered a silver mine in the County
fLincoln, the more easily to cover their counter-
:iting operations, have been recently detected, at-
ended with the following detail.of circumstances.
)n the examination of Daniel Gillum, John Pow-
rs, Christian Rhodes, and Michael Rhyne, infor-
nation leaked out as to the place where their ap-
aratus for coining was concealed : a party set out
n search of the same. On reaching the house of
Powers, they fund twenty dollars, manufactured
rincipally out of pewter, but very badly execut-
d; they also found fifteen more concealed in a
iece of woods not far from the house-these last
rere in a very imperfect state, not as yet having
"* -,'.,", rhp stm s. It remain-
d yet to find out fthe mouls, "aW It reiar -
brought to lightin-a curiotrus manner. Duringithe
ime, while-the party were making their search,
hey were regaled with many gentle oaths and
appropriate epithets from the ladies of Gillam and
'owers; at length, Mrs. Powers, in a canting way,
aid to the party, "that:they had betterdig up the
;arden." The searchers observing signs of alarm in
he countenance of the other fair one, in this unsea-
onableremark ofher companion,determined to take
aer at her word; they commenced searching in the
garden, and in a very short time found the moulds
n a sugar dish, buried in the earth; also, pewter,
and many other ingredients necessary to carry on
the trade of coining dollars. In the course of the
different searches about 60 dollars were found with
the party. Our readers (says the Salisbury Gaz-
ette) we have no doubt, would be surprised to hear
that all this has been going on in the neighborhood
of our old acquaintance, Abraham Collins, and he
has no hand in it; but letthem check their sur-
prise-for old Abraham, and young Abraham too
were there :-they were implicated, examined,
and committed to jail-young Abraham is a grand-
son of the old one, and from all accounts, bids fair
to be worthy of the stock from whence he sprang.
The old man says he is 70 years-the young one
is about 18 years of age.

s CAPTAIN THUNDERBOLT-
S If thou be'st he ; but 0 haw fallen."
A week or two ago, we mentioned the sudden
departure from this town, of a fellow by the name
of John Johnson, who set up here some five or six
months since, as a barber. He hired a horse and
chaise from Mr. McKenney's stable for a few days,
and after his departure suspicions arose that it was
i his intention not to return He was immediately
pursued through New Hampshire and Vermont,
and finally arrested near the Canada line and con-
fined in jail at St. Albans. It will be recollected
- perhaps, that a man by the name of Martin, wiho
was executed a few years ago at Boston, gives an
account in hi1 dying confessions of one of his ac-
complices in crime, who was designated by the
name of t"Captain Thunderbolt;" a name given
him probably on account of his giant strength and
daring spirit, which qualified him for a desperate
leader of a band of out-laws. After Johnson's
departure from town, a rumour soon spread,that lie
iwas ndAeipe-firsonage than this same Capt. Thcm-
derbolt; and his Herculean frame and dark visage,
more especially the lightning which was seen in
his piercing black eyes, rose up as ready witnesses
to give credibility to the story, which was verily
believe by many, and is to this day. It was even
said that meni whose faces had passed beneath his
razor now shuddered at the thought, and women
were more careful than ever on retirin- at night,
to see that doors and windows were all made se-
cure. When news arrived here that Johnson was
confined in St. Albans' jail, Mr. SMcKenney start-
ed with proper authorities to bring-him to this
town for trial. On arriving at St. Albans, howev-
er, he was not a little surprised to learn that John-
son had been absent from there almost a week !-
Johnson had told the people a very fair sto0-, that
lie had hired the horse and chaise at so much per
.day for as long a time as he pleased; that he was
a professor and lover of religion: belonged to a
baptist church, and was cruelly persecuted. These
arguments it seems were sufficient for the good
people of St. Albans. They wanted no further law
or evidence, but toook him out of jail forthwith,
for trial; andas no one appeared againtsthim, hlie was
discharged without delay. On Mr. M'Kenney's ar-
rival at St.Albans, however, the high sheriffat that
place and an attorney al law, readily offered their
services to pursue Johnson and bring him back.- I
They accordingly departed and found him at
Montreal, in Canada. He was discovered at a
public house, where he spent considerable part of
the afternoon, rolling nine-pins. As no one dared
venture to take him, it was determined to watch
him till he shohid retire to bed at night. Accord-
ingly after lie had gone to his chamber five men
went up, probably with the expectation of finding
this Sampson asleep, that thev might lay hands on
him and live. But it seems he liad too many
cares revolving in his breast to be under the influ-
ence of "tired nature's sweet restorer," and as they
enItered his chamber he sprang; from the bed, upon
which lie had thrown himself without undressing,
rushed upon his assailants, and knocked them down
.one after another until he was met by an Irish-
man,.a man of great strength, who had armed him-
self with a cudgel, and was very expert in the art
of wielding it. He soon fetched Johnson to the
floor with a heavy blow over the head, and suc-
Johnmson was taken on board a boat and rowed oilff,
accompanied by seven men. When they reached
the place where they were to take land carriage,
and were getting out of the boat, Johnson by a
prodigious effort of strength broke the cord whichI
bound hiss arms, and snatching a sword-cane fiomn
the hands of one of the officers, put himself in a
posture of defence, threatening death to any one
who should approach him But the Irishman, on
whom the hopes of the company rested, by his
superior skill at cudgel play, defended himself from
the thrusts or Johnson, gave' him several severe
bruizes, broke his sword, and finally disarmed him;
whereuponhee was re-bound, placed in the carriage,/
guarded again by seven men, and driven off at full
speed for St. Albans. There he was placed in a
strong set of irons and given up to Mr. McKenny,
who conducted him to Portland. The persons who
took Johnson at Montreal were all strangers to him,
and it is worthy of remark that as soon as they had
secured him, he eagerly inquired whether they had
taken him for robbing the mail! On his way from
SI. Albans here, Johnson was sullen and took but
- very little food, and once knocked the person out
e. -, viwn on Tuedday last, and i occasioned sit-t
small stir smongst tihe people." He was examined
in the Court House, before Justice Storer, amidst
a great crowd of spectators, and laid under bonds
of twelve hundred dollars, to appear and receive
his trial at the sitting of the Supreme Court in this
town in November next. The prisoner being una-
ble to obtain bail, was committed.
PETERSBURG, (Va.) August 12.-Fire.-
About day break this morning, our citizens, while
in the enjoyment of calm repose, were aroused by
that awful cry of "fire"-which proved to be a
large framed building in Blandford, the property
of Mr. William P. WVyche, of Belfield, and lalely
occupied by Mr. Win. Shands, who had removed
his family to the country, leaving a part of his fur-
niture in the house, which was principally saved,
by the timely exertions of some of the neighbours.
/The fire could not have originated by accident,
which we are sorry to say. The house, we under-
stand was insured.-Republican.

afraid for his soul to enjoy her : jealous of the par-
liaments, who would support his authority; and a
devoted bi.ot to the church, that would destroy
it. The people are Ioor, consequently discontent-
ed. Those who have religion are divided in their
notions of it, which is saying, that they hate one
another. The clergy never do forgive, much less
will they forgive the parliament-the parliament
never will forgive them. Thearmymust, without
doubt, take, in their own minds at least, different
parts in all these disputes, which, upon occasion, 2
would break out. Armies, though always the sup-
porters and tools of absolute power for the time
being, are always the destroyers o,'it too, by fre-
quently changing thhands in which they think
proper to lodge it. This was the case with I

He says, without quoting his long passages," that
his former remarks removed every doubt, and ex-

to defend himself. That the revolution in opi.
union has been complete, (amongst the milliners)
no one ventures any longer to think it probable
that Scott could have any claims. That Scott is
incapable of producing an original work ofordi-

that the real writer and Sir Walter act in concert,

the author, Sir Walter being paid by the real au-

An assassination and suicide were yesterday
committed in a house near the Etat Major of the
National Guard. A Spaniard, supposed to. be a
naval Captain, shot a young woman, whom he
loved, through the head, with a pistol, and then
applied another to his own head. It is said that
upon searching the apartment, a paper was found,
purporting that these crimes were concerted be-

ARMY OF THE PYRENEES-FOURTH CORPS.
Girone, June 22.-Sir, The Lieut. Curial ad-
vises me that on the .20th inst. having received in-
telligence that 3000 Constitutionalists were found
in the village of Mastorellas and Monternos, where
they levied contributions, sent there a battalion of
infantry with a 100 horse. This little column
was commanded by M. Nicholas, colonel bof the 23d'
regiment of dragoons. The batallion of infantry
was directed to the villages designated; but in or,
der to tur:n the enemy, the 100 dragoons proceeded
with the colonel at their head for Montmalo sur
San Fausto. Having arrived at this.last point,.
M. Nichols .perceived in the forest, and over a very
high hill a body of the enemy. He immediately
charged with impetuosity. The disadvantages of
the ground were such, that the horsemen were ob-
liged to dismount and march against the enemy
with their carbines. The party attacked laid
'down their arms, after having discharged them
once. Thirty men, and a lieut. colonel remained'
in our keeping; the prisoners were sent to Girone.
. The enemy did not expect our- battalion of in-
fantry at Mastorellas, and had time, after having
two men killed and three wounded, to effect their
escape. Col. Nicholas conducted admirably this.
expedition, as well as, the second lieut. Rebeille,
and the Marchall des logis Gaultier.

We published yesterday an abstract of the seih-
.tepces pronounced by the Court of Sessions upon
thb offenders who had been convicted therein, du-
.ring the .preceding term; and in reviewing the
,rm;ni-t.u-t--,.in r.if criminal justice in our cityit is
s, 'i -i in- i ub-..rve that since the introduction.of
the treadmill, the number and' atrocity of offences
have visibly'diminishcd. There is, however, one
subject connected with it, of deep concern to the:
.public characterand welfare. We refer te the de-
predations c:.inmii:J by juvenile offenders.
In this;-as-in' other large and populous cities,,
thdre i a.Is:- of wretched miscreants who.sub-
sist uipon the profits obtained by receiving stolen,
goods, and '1i -entice dtinttren, --by-pnrtmiceiptlti, :
of the thrift, to purloin from their masters and o-
thers, whatever they 'can lay hold of. The eye of
suspicion isn notfastened upon them. They seize
whatever comes 'within their reach, and find a rea-
dy deposit for it in:the..house of their wicked em-
ployer. Tenipted by tlihe spoil, and countenanced
and encouraged by the eldeo knave, they soon be-
come adopts in the art, -and after detection, the
exemption from punishment, on account of their
tender age, hardens them in guilt. The law in
its mercy presumes the young offender not to have
sufficient discretion to commit a felony, if under 14
years of age. Proof, it is true, may be adduced to
rebut the presumption, by showing the adroitness
and intelligence of the prisoner; tbut if, as is not
uncommon when arraigned in the box, they shed
abundance of tears, and give evidence of contrition,
the jury are moved by compassion to lean to the
merciful side, and acquit. They thus leave the
City Hall, and perhaps in a week afteriwiards are
again brought to the police office for another and
similar offence. The case of William Milligan, a
lad about 13 years of age, who was tried at the
sessions on Wednesday, the 6th inst. is not a singu-
lar one of the kind-it may serve, however, for an
example. This lad was then charged with having
entered the house of Mr. Charruaud in White-
street, in the day time, and stealing therefrom somenic
silver spoons. He ran off with speed, but was
pursued and the property recovered. When taken
hlie feigned intoxication: his, youth and his appa-
rent innocence, combined with a possible doubt,
raised as to his identity, led the jury to acquit
him. On the 15th instant, (only nike days af-
terwards) he wv-s again tried for ait'.hier felo-
ny, committed subsequently to hifs previous e.o- si'on to use WVhitehall-slip.for their steam ferry-boat tie : a parcet of Pot and : ail w-r 66 sold y esif

th'm, said to his associate', who was stationed with-
iln each of the suspenders-" Now Charles is your
ti4e." Charles thereupon seized them, and tley
both made off-turned a corner4 divided the spoil,
and then ran off again in different directions. This
lad has now been sent, with. his associate, to the
penitentiary for nine months; and what is the
prospect ?--that at the expiration of the term he
will come out a more hardened and dangerous of-
fender than he went in !
Another case at the same term may be referred
to, attended with a different, but, perhaps, not less
unpropitious result. A boy, of respectable family
and descent, was arraigned upon a charge of larce-
ny. He had been often brought before the Police,
and as frequently admonished, but without any
salutary effect. He was proved, by unquestionable-
evidence on his trial, to have violently seized, on
this occasion, a handkerchief, in the corner of
which was tied up a small sum of money, from the
basket of a lady in the day time, as she was return-
ing from market. She was at first disconcerted by
his boldness, but-pointing him out to some by-
standers as he ran of, they pursued and overtook
him... For this offence he was tried arid acquitted.
He wept bitterly in the box, and his puerile coun-
tenance and apparent simplicity, probably induced
the jury, by giving the reins to the humane pre-
sumption.of the law, to acquit him.
It is not for the purpose of finding fault with the
verdict, that we advert to this case; but it is for
the more important object of bringing into view
the contrasted results of a conviction and an ac-
quittal,-either alternative of which is fraught,
with danger to the community. Not a term passes
without similar cases, in which boys of very tender
years are tried for larcenies, with strong proof of
their guilt. And what shall be done with them in
a dilemma where punishment in the one case, or a
merciful acquittal in the other, leads alike to the
renewed perpetration of crimes? That they should
not bZ placed in the penitentiary, with convicts ma-
tuiec in age and crime-"associated with vulgar,
vice, and base-born profligacy," we fully believe;
and we .believe, as fully, that entire exemption
from punishment is as ruinous to the young culprit,
as to society.
: To devise an appropriate remedy for the evil, is
not within, our province. It is a subject which be-
longs to the legislature, and is well worthy oftheir
Were we to hazard a suggestion as to the substi-.
tute, it would be to vest in the Court of Sessions
the power to adjudge juvenile offenders to confine-
ment in the proposed Housr of REFucE, subject
to proper regulation and restraint, and apart from
those who are simply unfortunate;-and that in
cases where the' proof is not sufficiently clear to
warrant a conviction, the same court, or the magis-
trates of the police, or some other proper board, be
'empowered (after notice to their parents, or guar-
dians, to shew cause-cur non) to bind them out as
apprentices, to mechanics or masters of vessels, as
-trtiy may TITifilnIproper. Nor should the authori-
ty proposed, be confined to cases in which boys are
arraigned for-criminal offeqces. It ought also to
extend to all cases in which they are suffered by
their parents, or guardians, to run loose upon so-
ciety, leading idle and dissolute lives, and acquiring
habits of intemperance and vicious association. We
_are aware that there is an existing authority of a
limited extent. But it remains a dead letter upon
the statute book; for it is confitied, if not in terms,
yet certainly in its operation, to.tliose cases in
which the child is destitute of parents. It makes

It may indeed be objected that to interpose :.i .

.the paramount power of society. The reasonable
interposition of such a power is 'clearly conatitulh
tional. It comes within the scope of those objects
fourwhich society was institutedj7-for individual
protection, and for the,general welfare. Nor is it',
without precedent. In the Eastern states it has
long b'den'the 'law, add acted upon with salutary
effects.. The necessity of such a sfatute'in a large
city, is vastly more urgent and imperious, than
among the spare populatidil atidsober habits of
,New-England. Theye are laws already in bene-
ficial operation in this city, which, pome vastly
nearer'to an infringement of private rights and
liberty than the one proposed. The case in ques-.
tion effects every individual in' tihe city. It int-
volies not only the safety of his property, but of
his person, aCd all that is dear to hlim. The
morals of the rising generation cannot be too so-
duously guarded nor their aberrations too care-
fully .restrained. They lie atthe foundation of all
that is valuable insociety, and are connected with
our best and fairest hopes, both here and hereafter.
COMMON COUNCIL.-At a regular meeting
of the Common Council held-last evening at the
CityHall, the minutes of the previous meeting
were readand n appr oved. The semi-monthly account

Extract from a letter, dated lJgvre, July 1.
"There has been a good demand for cotton in
our market of late at gradually improving prices,
and sales were made yesterday of about 1,800
bales of American descriptions at an advance of from
1 to 2 sous, according to quality. On inferior Or-
leans the rise has been greatest. The smallness of
our present stock of cotton, as compared with last
year, particularly Upland: auit Orleans, seems to
have produced a strong f.-elig that we shall be
short of these descriptions before the end of the

with the favouiruble accounts from Englandi have

She is gone to the fields of ths viewless air,

S]oth she rest with the flowers o'er her gentle head,
Or float on the light winds borne ?
We know not, but she is gone! [song,

And the'smileef her eye from the festal throng!

Linen bleached with Lime.-Every body knows
the injury which is done to linen by bleaching it
with lime .It is easy to detect linens which have been
so bleached in the following manner:-Cut off a
scrap of the new linen which you wish to examine,
put it into a glass, and pour upon it several spoon-
fuls of good vinegar. If the linen contain lime, the
acid will excite considerable effervescence, accom-
panied with a slight noise. Otherwise, no effect is
William Coombe. Esq.-This gentleman, long
known to the literary world, died on Thursday
morning at his apartments, Lambeth-road, in the
eighty-second year of his age. He originally ex-
cited great attention in the fashionable world by a
poem entitled The Diaboliad, the hero of which
was generally understood to be a nobleman lately
deceased. The Tour of Dr. Syntax in search of
the Picturesque, The English Dance of Death and
the Dance of Life, The History of Johnny Quam
Genus, The Little Foundling of the late Dr. Syn-
tax, (all illustrated from the designs of Mr. Row-
landson,) were among his latest and most popular
productions. He was also the author of the Devil
upon two Sticks in England, and of several poli-
tical pamphlets, which made a considerable im-
pression on the public, among which were The
Royal Interview, A Letter from a Country Gen-
tleman to his Friend in Town, A Word in Season,
and many others. He also wrote those Letters
which appeared under the title of Letters of the
late Lord Lyttelton. Mr. Coombe began life un-
der the most favourable auspices. He was edu-
cated at Eton and Oxford. He possessed great
talents, and a very fine person as well as a good
fortune,which, unhappily, he soon dissipated among
the high connexions to which his talents and at-
tainments introduced him, and he subsequently pas-
sed through many vicissitudes of life, which at length
compelled him to resort to literature for support.
The life of Mr. Coombe, if impartially written,
would be pregnant with instruction; but those
whose literary contributions might have provided
materials are probably most of them with him in'
the grave; and he will hereafter be chiefly remem-
bered as the author of Doctor Syntax.
The termination of the imprisonment of M. M.
Joy and Jouy in Sainte Pelagie, was celebrated by
a cheerful and elegant banquet, at.which were
assembled their numerous friends. The Academie
Francaise sent to M. Jouy, -one of its members, a
deputation to express the pain his imprisonment
had occasioned his brethren, and their joy at his
return to his friends and his occupations. It ap-
pears that the Ministers have ill-interpreted this
attention on the part of the academici',is, and
have censured their civility. M. M. Joy and Jouy
employed their time in prison on a work to which
both contributed, entitled Les Hermites en Prison,
ou Consolations de Sainte Pelagic. The first vo-
lume has appeared, and the first edition is already
out of print. The prisoners denounce bitterly the
treatment which several literary men have expe-
rienced in that prison, and especially that of M..
Magallon. The chapter, H1-istoire de ma Chambre,
is evidently from the elegant and easy pen of MT-
Jouy. He informs us who were his predecessors
in that same sad chamber. Among others he men-
tions Josephine Beauharnais, since Empress of
France ; and Mina, imprisoned by Napoleon on
his return f-rom Elba,-Mina, now one of the most
powerful arbiters ot the destinies of his country;
and more disliked and dreaded by the existing
French government than by that it has replaced.
There are in this volume many anecdotes of the
habits of the prisoners, and remarks and descrip-
tions quite worthy of the Hermtle de la Chaussee
A .1 scrap of Antiquity.-At a time when the cus-
tom of Ring wearing is of almost universal adop-
tion; it may.not be misplaced to admit the glitter-
ing fingered within the pale of our lucubrations.
In the course of our reading a few mornings back,
(in a polyglot Dictionary, published in the year
162.3, by John Mvlinshaew) our attention Was divert-
ed by the following observations under the article
".Ring Finger.-Vetus versiculus singulis di-
gitis Anulumi tribuens, Miles. Mercator. Stultus.
Maritus. Amator. Pollici, adscribitur Militi, seu
Doctori. Mercatorum a-polhce secundurm. Stul-
torum, tertium. Nuptorum vel studiosotium quar-
tumrn. Amatorum ultimum." -
By which it appears that the fingers on which an-
nuli were anciently wornr were directed by 'the
calling, or peculiarity of the party. Were it
A Soldier or Doctor, to him was assigned the
A Sailor, the finger; next the thumb.
A Fool, the middle finger. .
