DOGS AND SO ON.
There are some animals that never
cease to excite my wonder. Pa,
where did dogs come from ?" asked my
youngest boy the other day. "From
the woods, my son," said I, hesitating,
as I often do at these simple questions;
for familiar as I was with the domestic
relation of man and dog, though the law
books have strangely omitted it, I had
not once thought of inquiring into its
origin. I took it for granted, that as
woman was made from the rib of a man,
dogs must have been made so too-they
have always been so inseparable from the
human race. Of all animals, dogs and
cats are the most domestic; yet the law
in its wisdom, makes them out to be
fere' naturae-of a savage nature, and
therefore not the subject of property ori
theft. By the law of England, if you
steal a cabbage, you may be sent to Bota-
ny Bay for seven years; but if you steal
my favorite dog, it is not punishable,
saith the "perfection of reason," because
they are not used to be eaten. There is
a civil action for damages, to be sure,
and that depends upon the estimation
by the jury, of his pecuniary value. But
what idea can a jury have of your affec-
tion for a favorite dog ?-a playful, beau-
tiful, loving dog?-respectable, withal,
and clean; one who has saved your life,
and would do it again, at the loss of his
own-one that would rather starve with
you, than feast will a stranger-one that
would howl to he moon at your absence
or refuse sustenance over your grave,
till he died of grief and hunger? Why,
you would rather lose your last coat,
than part with him. Yet, forsooth, it is
no felony to steal or shoot him : he is
not to be fattened and killed for butchers'
meat !-a most beef eating and greasy
discrimination, truly-a disgrace to the
English character. They manage these
things differently in the town where I
went to school. A jury there gave three
hundred dollars damages against a con-
stable, for wantonly shooting a dog be-
longing to Squire Twann. It was pro-
ved on trial, that this dog was in the
habit of taking the horse to water and
leading him to the stable-waking up
the servants in the morning-driving up
the cows, carrying the children's basket
to school-and I have seen him lugging
his master's green bag to the court house
-looking as thoughtful the while, as if
the case was his own. He would even
take the children to ride upon his mas-
ter's horse, pulling back and growling
anxiously if his brother quadruped at-
tempted to go too fast. If you had seen
this sight you never would deny that
these animals had souls-a helpless child
upon the back of an animal proverbial
for fleetness and strnegth, and him led
by a beast of prey so "savage" that the
law declares him not the subject of theft.
Dogs m-ay be divided into large and
small, genteel and vulgar-rough and
smooth-savage and amiable. There
are about as many classes, ranks, and
families among them, as among men,
and about the same diversity of charac-
ter and appearance.

tyrannical dog-wide awake, strong, and
wicked-seeking whom he may devour.
"Deliver me from the power of this dog"
as the pigs at the corner of Main and
Third have it. With a back like a stur-
geon, and a tail like a ram's horn-of a
disposition to hang on in spite of cudgels
and cold water; and a head that would
bite through a crow-bar twenty-four
hours after being cut off. This dog fol-
loweth butchers' carts-attacketh pigs,
cows, and little dogs; he frequenteth
low cafes, and suspicious neighborhoods
near town; he addeth to the misery of
animal creation. The eow suspendeth
her meditations, and walketh swiftly by
on the other side. 'he pig abstaineth
from gastronomical thoughts he the
precincts ever so tempting. The little
dogs dare not play at rough and tumble
in his presence, for fear of being domin-
ered over, anp swelt of a year's growth.
If you see a butcher's cart driving
through town, attended by one of these
dogs, you may look out for one continued
squeal and yelp from thebeginingof the
street to the end of it. One of these
wretches was the genius loci of the corner
of Main & Third streets, about a year
ago. No pig could pass that way, and
say hissoul was his own; his ears at
least must suffer the invariable penalty,
and the ears of all that heard him.
There was not a whole hog within fifty
yards of the spot. There was yet another
who had lost both his ears, his tail, and
in fact, had all his rough points so
smoothed off that he was proof against
man and beast. But not even a pig is
proof against vanity. He never came
out till after dark; and of moonlight
nights always kept the shady side of the
street. I pitied him from my very soul
-for if a pig desire any thing, next to
apple skins, it is peace with his enemies
and the pleasure of twisting his tail to

such a vulgarian as would attach to his
person "tame varmints" of this sort-a
common man, of low forehead and fleshy
mouth, with an obstinate looking shirt
collar sticking up behind his ears. His
dog, in addition to the qualities I have
mentioned above, had one large projec-
ted glazed eye, and a fascinating habit
of showing his under teeth. Affectionate
glances ever and anon passed between
him and his master : but for every body
else, he seemed to eye them with cold
suspicion, which on the slightest pro-
vocation, would kindle Into deadly hate.
-This abominable couple kept the whole
company sore for about one hundred
miles. The first salutation I had, was a
grab at my boot from Cupid, as he was
called.-The attack was so perfectly un-
provoked, that I determined to annihilate
him at once. It was so dark and crowd-
ed that I could not see him. I gave a
tremendous kick in the direction I
thought he was, which brought my tibia
full against the wooden edge of the op-
posite bench, and the toe of my boot,
which was intended to go down Cupid's
throat, against the shin of an elderly
Shaker, who asleep in the opposite cor-
ner. I missed the god of love entirely,
who nevertheless set up a yelp which
waked every one up, and started the
horses off atfull gallop. The man of
the shirt collar lifted up his voice also :
" Can't you let the dog alone ? he's not
"Sir," said I, (rubbing my leg, and
using that cool tone of desperation which
concealed agony always imparts,) '"I
give you distinctly to understand, that
when I get hold of your dog, he goes
out of the window; and ifyou say one
word that is not perfectly respectable,
you go after him."
I was going on to expound the law to
him yet more fiercely, when the war
broke out in another corner. I could
see nothing-but heard a fierce growl, a
violent kick, and a yelp. A voice seem-
ed to issue from a chaos of cloaks and
umbrellas, saying words of terrible im-
port-and three or four pokes of a cane
came so near my feet, that I drew my
knees swiftly up, striking one of them
against the probosis of a man who was
nodding in front of me. I brought him
up as straight as a drum-major at review.
I apologisedjuast in time to save myself
a black eye.
I then heard a rapid knocking upon
the bottom of the stage, like a dog
scratching himself. The next moment,
the window flew open ; there was a great
growling, a scrabling of toes against the
sash, a yelp outside, the window closed,
and all was silent, except the voice of the
man with the shirt collar, demanding to
be let out. "Let him out," was the cry,
and off we rolled, leaving him whistling
for his dog, swearing vengeance against
us, and throwing stones after the coach.
When matters were again composed, a
long sigh of relief went around, and we
settled ourselves for the night.
With these two exceptions, I have
much to say in favor of dogs ; but I must
reserve that for another time, when [
have not such a bad cold in the head.

The opposition presses have not a word to say
about the Louisiana election, now that the result is
known, although they were, as usual, much inclin-
ed to rejoice when partial returns were received.
Since they are silent, therefore, it may be as well to
state that no doubt now exists as to the complete
triumph of Van Burenism in that State. The fol-
1 owing is the composition of the Legislature:
The Senate of Louisiana of 17 members-the
House of 50-total 67. Of the late Senate, Mr Van
Buren has 3 friends, add 3 just elected-6. In the
House he has 35 out of the 50; which united, make
41, being a majority of 7 on joint ballot.
A correspondent of the Globe, writing from New
Orleans, has the following corroboration of the news
"Our elections in Louisiana are just over, and
you may rest assured that the honorable Alexander
Porter will never return to Washington City, after
his present term expires, in capacity of U. States
Senator. Our Legislature will be decidedly Van
Buren. Our friend Alexander Moulton has been
returned to the Legislature from Lafayette. He, it
is probable, will be the U. States Senator; perhaps
John H. Overton, or Gen. Dawson. In St. Mary
we have been beaten only 15 votes; two years ago
Brashlar beat Splane 60. Democracy is gaining
ground throughout the State. Major Andrus, whom
you saw with Mr Moulton last summer, has been
returned from Opelousas to the Legislature-a sig-
nal triumph of democracy in that quarter."
The recreant Senators of Pennsylvania assert
that their desertion of the people last winter was
prompted by patriotism, and a desire for the wel-
fare of the community. It'would be a curious and
interesting investigation to ascertain the primary
motive-the origin of their disaffection to the
democratic cause, which laid them open to the se-
ductions of the aristocracy. Would it not be found
that the mainspang was disappointment in their
hopes of personal advancement; that more than one.
was an unsuccessful applicant for office, and that
finding they were by no means the important per-
son ages on the popular side, which they imagined
thems-lves, they eagerly snapped at the first bil
from the adverse faction? To vain, ambitious, ill-
Xegulatea men, 4,o btIebs motive enough was held
out for desertion during t,. -...-i.,"i.o trenfr,-
the commission of the olfence; but it is ,uppu-,d
that there were previous ranklings. It is always a
painful discovery to men to find that they have far
overestimated themselves, and that the adulation of
their own little circle is by no means the voice of
the community. When that truth is brought
home, in nine cases out of ten the selfish politicig
seeks from*his former enemies the advancement to
which he was not entitled on the side to which he
first belonged. He leagues with the enemies of the
people, in the hope that with new associates his
chance will be the better, and that at least the re-
ward of treachery will be his. It is an old case; but
it would be interesting to possess the facts relating
to this modern instance.
A resolution was passed at a meeting of the Van
Burenites of the First Ward, Northern Liberties,
recommending the State Convention to place all for-
eigners, after having resided six months in the coun-
try, on an equal footing with native born citizens.-
- [Pennsylvania Inquirer.
The above is a specimen of the accuracy and ve-
racity of the opposition press. It so happens that
the 'Van Burenites of the First Ward, Northern
Liberties,' said nothing of the kind. They did not
allude, either directly or indirectly, to the naturaliza-
tion laws, nor was the subject broached. The fol-
lowing is the resolution which the Inquirer has mis-
Resolved, That we think two years asa require-
ment previous to voting, as oppressive, particularly
to poor men-and that 6 months he recommended
to the convention, aa sufficient time to qualify a man
to exercise the rights of freemen.
The resolution refers to State residence, By the
constitution of Pennsylvania, the American citizen
who has not resided in the State two years next be-
fore the election,cannot exercise the privilege of vo-
ting, and those removing to Pennsylvania are thus
eut off from a right inestimable to freemen. It was
to this that the Van Burenites of the First Ward,
N. L. referred, in their resolution, and they were
desirous that the qualifying residence should be re-
duced to a reasonable time. In Maine the period
is fixed at three months, in New Hampshire it is
one year; the same in Ohio, and n the States gene-
rally. The Pennsylvania term of two years is
justly odious and oppressive, and should be redu-
ced to meet the wishes of the community. Does
the Inquirer now understand!

FOR THE PENNSYLVANtIAN.
THIRD CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT.
To the Editor: Sir,-I am led to address this
connmunieation to the public, for reasons which, as
a democrat, whose principles have stood thle test for
years gone by, and which still continue the same,
I conceive of essential importance at this time, to
complete,the triumph anticipated by the democracy
of the Third District at the ensuing election.
In the first place, it has been announced that M.
W. Ash, Esq., our faithful and worthy representa-
tive in Congress, intends declining a re-election.
It is time that the Democracy of the Third District
should be active in their exertions and selection of
a suitable candidate to fill his place; and I must con-
fess that with the general expressed opinions of old
and well tried democrats, I know of no man in that
district whose nomination would more fully accom-
plish united action and triumphant success at the
palls, than that of FRANCIS J. HARPER, Esq.,
our present worthy, honest and (aithful Senator in
the Assembly of Pennsylvania.
In 1832, during one of thenmost violent political
campaigns of the aristocracy Bank influence and
proscription of the opponents to democracy, Fran-
J. Harper, Esq. was the only candidate for Assem-
sembly in the City and County of Philadelphia e-
lected by the Democratic party, and consequently
the only representative for the City and County of
Philadelphia to whom the democracy could look for
the accomplishment and support of democratic mea-
sures. He was faithful to the trust, and fully sup-
ported the interests of his constituents and princi-
ples of democracy throughout the session.
In 1834 he was elected to the Senate by a trim,
.hant maioritr of the democracy of the County,

THREE DAYS LATER FROM ENGLAND.
ATTEMPT TO ASSASSINATE LOUIS
The Ship RE prv.i Capt. WILLIAMS, from
Liverpool, was boarded by our news collector yes-
terday, lying too, twelve miles from Sandy Hook.
He arrived in town late at night, bringing us Lon-
don papers to the 28th, and Liverpool to the 29th
The attempt again to assassinate Louis PIr.L-
LPePn, of which we annex the particulars, will pro-
bably excite a considerable degree of attention. The
assassin is justly condemned by the Paris press in
general, with the single exception of one paper, Le
.NYationel, which does not make any comment up-
on the occurrence. The King, it appears, acted
with great courage and sang froid. Instead of
stopping at the Tuilleries, after the attempt on his
life, he continued his journey to Neuilly, where his
.family were waiting to receive him, ignorant of
the danger he had escaped. An affecting inter-
view ensued, and from his arrival till midnight,
his palace was thronged by Foreign Ministers,
Peers, &c.,anxious to congratulate him on his safety.
The Chambers of Peers was immediately convo-
ked to receive a communication from the Govern-
ment, and the Dukes of Orleans and Nemours
were summoned to Paris by telegraph on their re-
turn from their tour in Lombardy.
Another interesting piece of intelligence received
by this arrival is, that the British House of Lords
have taken into consideration the amendments of
the Commons to their amendments in the Irish Mu-
nicipal Bill, and the result was thatthe amendments
of the Commons were rejected, the numbers being
for the amendments 78, against them 142. Lord
Melbourne, Lord Lyndhurst and Earl Grey were
the prominent speakers on the occasion. The a-
mendments of the Commons being negatived gene-
rally, the Lords appointed a committee to draw up
a statement of the reasons for their disagreement
with the other House.
The accounts from Spain, though presenting no-
thing decisive,'still strike us as exhibiting in strong
colors, the lamentable weakness of the Queen's Go-
vernment. It is true Don Carlos does not appear
in a much more enviable position. Cordova, the
commander in chief of the constitutional army, had
returned and placed himself again at its head, but
no action between the contending parties of any ac-
count had taken place.
From the London Times-June 27.
We have been favored with a copy of a telegraph-
ic despatch received yesterday by the French Em-
bassy. It runs thus:
PaIs, June 20, 1 o'clock A. M.
The King has just escaped a new danger. An
individual fired at His Majesty,but His Majesty was
not touched. The assassin has been arrested. Pa-
ris is indignant. Order reigns every where."
From the Courier Francais of Sunday.
"Last evening, about six o'clock, a new attempt
was made upon the King's life, which fortunately
proved as unsuccessful as the former. Just as his
Majesty had entered his carriage, to return to Neu-
illy, and was passing under the gateway leading to
the quay, a young man who had placed himself on
the side opposite to that of the post of the National
Guard, lifted up a cane in which a pistol barrel had
been fixed, placed it on the carriage door, and fired
it at the King.
"Louis Philippe was at that moment bowing to
the National Guards through the other window.-
Whether the assassin felt agitated, or, as it is stated,
was pushed while engaged in taking aim, the ball
did not touch the-King, who, immediately after the
explosion, made a sign that he was not wounded,
and ordered the coach to be driven on to Neuilly.
The King was with the Queen, and his sister Ma-
dame Adelaide, and a detachment of dragoons es-
corted the carriage.
"On hearing the explosion, the National Guards
rushed on the man, who still held the weapon in
his hand. He was at first ill-treated, but the offi-
cers interfered, and having represented the impor-
tance of his being put in the hands of justice, the
prisoner was brought to a room above the ground
floor, where he was stretched on a bed,and searched,
in order to ascertain if he had no arms concealed.-
A poinard was found in his side pocket. M. Gis-
quet', who was then in the Tuilleries, with several
other public functionaries, immediately repaired to
the guard-house, and proceeded to examine the in-
dividual arrested. He refused to tell his name, and
when recognized by several persons, who knew him
and said that he was a commercial traveller, and
that his name was ./libeau, he pretended that ili-
beau was an assumed name, and refused to give
his real one from regard to his family He was
then asked if he had been agitated while aiming at the
King; and if it was not his agitation that had de-
ranged the direction of his arm ? He replied, with
much composure, that he had felt no emotion; and
that if he had missed his aim, it was owing to his
having experienced a shock or push, for which he
could not account. He was finally asked, if he re-
pented his crime; he answered in the negative, and
added,that if it was to be done over again, he should
not hesitate to do it; that he had no further expla-
nonon l o aWR. O ...".0.40 4

longer to be found, no one could appreciate or un-
derstand his motive !
"During his examination active enquiries were
made, and it was discovered that this young manr
had entered the Place du Caroussel, about o'clock,
by the gate of the Triumphal Arch; that he had
conversed some time with a National Guard on in-
different matters, and left him when he saw the
King's carriages proceeding from the stables to the
Palace, saying, 'I think the person I am waiting for
wili not come,' and went off in the direction of the
Court, He repaired from thence to the gate of the
Palace next to the quay, and there remained in a
group of people who were waiting for the King's
departure. His appearance, it seems, did not awa-
ken suspicion, and no one observed the cane he car-
ried in his hand, and which contained the deadly
weapon. This instrument led to the discovery of
Alibeau. By an extraordinary chance, the gun-
maker who manufactured it (a serjeant in the Na-
tional Guard) happened to be on duty at the Tuil-
leries, and felt it incumbent on him to give the Ma-
gistrate every information in his power. He stated
that the weapon seized on the assassin had been
made in his establishment, with many others of the
same kind: that he was aware of its being a viola-
tion of the laws to have made and sold such a wea-
pon; but that as the affair was of so serious a nature
he did not hesitate to confess it. The lodging of
the individual arrested was then discovered, and the
owner of the house having been sent for, recogniz-
ed the prisoner to be Alibeau. He said he had
lodged in his house, but that he had gone off with-
out paying him, leaving in pledge his passport,
which had been delivered him in Lyons, and men-
tioned his having been born in that city. On being
confronted with the sentinel of the National Guard
he had conversed with at the gate of the Carroussel,
he coolly asked him, 'Did you observe that I betray-
ed the least emotion while speaking with you!' Af-
ter this confrontation, Alibeau was placed in a hack-
ney coach and conveyed under a large escort to the
Conciergere, where he no doubt underwent another
examination, He was lodged in the room formerly
occupied by Fieschi, Hlie was dressed in a neat
frock coat, but his shirt was dirty and in rags, and
was without stockings. About 12 o'clock last
night the Attorney General and the Prefect of Po-
lice were sttll at the Conciergere interrogating him.
It is M. Martin du Nord who has commenced the
proceedings. Alibeau, or the individual known by
that name, is tall and slight; his hair black, and his
complexion pale. Only 22 sous (lid) were found
in his pockets.
"In the evening, all the Ministers, the Peers, and
the Deputies present at Paris, went out to Nepilly
to congratulate the King on his escape. His Ma,
jesty was to receive a deputation of both Chambers
on Sunday, in the Palace of the Tuilleries. It is
said that the Queen' took out of the King's hair
some of the wadding that had been lodged therein
It was also reported that a courier had been de:
spatched to the Dukes of Orleans and Nemours, te
invite them to return in all haste to Paris."
PArIS, JUNE 26.

the attempt of yesterday on the King's life, in the
Smidst of the multiplied precautions taken to obviate
the possibility of such a crime, which I briefly refer.
red to in my letter of last night, degroys for ever

consigned to A. C. Lombard & Co., of this city,-
having on board two colored females, named in
their "passes" Eliza Small and Polly AJnn Bates.
Soon afterwards, Mr. Jonn B. Morris, of Balti-
more, discovered that two of his females-one na-
med Ann Patten and the other Mary Pinckney-
had ran away; and, upon inquiry, he had good
reason to believe that the two women, who sailed
in the Chickasaw, under different names, were the
persons who had absconded. Mr. Morris, therefore,
sent oil Mr. Matthew, Turner, to whom he gave
a power of attorney, authorizing him to arrest and
claim the fugitives. Mr. Turner arrived in the city
on Sunday week, and kept a vigilant look out for
the arrival of the Chickasaw, which took place last
Saturday morning. Mr. Turner went down below
about four miles, boarded the Chickasaw,and found
the fugitives, ascertained that they had false "pas-
ses," and ordered the Captain to detain them till he
could procure a warrant to secure them further.-
The women at once admitted themselves to have
been the slaves of Mr. Morris. Affidavits of all the
facts and admissions of the women were made, and
are now on file in the Supreme Court.
Between 12 and I on Saturday noon, Eldridge
was summoned to appear before Chief Justice Shaw,
to shew cause why the women, brought up by writ
of habeas' corpus, should not be discharged from
custody. The habeas corpus was obtained by
Samuel H. Arlams, a colored man, and included a
free mulatto man, who did not come in the vessel.
This circumstance proved that certain persons in
this city expected the three persons specified in the
writ to come in the Chickasaw, and it was also sus-
pected at Baltimore that the man had sailed with
the women. The agent and his counsel rely on
this fact as proving that the plan of the escape of
the fugitives was concerted in this city. The writ
was made returnable at half past three on Saturday,
but at that hour Judge Shaw was not in Court,and
Judge Wilde ordered the women to be committed
to jail, to appear yesterday morning at 9 o'clock.
The Court was completely crowded by colored
'.1 IV 1--^'Pr -
the bar, were about a dozen male and female aboli-
tionists-half-and-half of each. Samuel E. Sewall,
Esq., appeared in behalf of the slaves, A. H. Fiske,
Esq., for Mr. Turner, to oppose their discharge on
the habeas corpus. After the respective arguments,
His Honor Judge Shaw cited certain united States
statutes, prescribing the mode of reclaiming runa-
way slaves, and expressed an opinion, that Capt.
Eldridge had no authority to detain the women in
custody, but as he was intimating that they ought
to be discharged from his custody, Mr. Turner
arose and said he held a power of attorney to claim
the women. Mr. Fiske then proposed that the case
should bhe continued for further consideration.
Sewell, it is said-and some persons declared
yesterday in Court that they were ready to swear
to it -approached the slaves, who were seated on a
jury bench on the left of the Judge, and told them
that they were discharged, and advised them to clear
out before the agent seized them. Whatever might
have been the tenor of his communication with
them-for a communication he admits he had-the
effect was unexampled in any of our Courts; for
when Judge Shaw arose to reply to Mr. Fiske, the
colored people sprung from their seats in every di-
rection, and gathering round the two slaves, rushed
to the nearest door, burst it open, and bore them
pell-mell down the stairs. A huge negro woman
carried one of them into Court Square in her arms.
Deputy Sheriff Huggeford and Constable Trescott
were the only officers present. Mr Huggeford dashed
in among the rushing mob, but was seized by the
throat, and thrown aside, unable to stem the cur-
rent. Judge Shaw called to order, and commanded
the rioters to stop, but they pressed on, till, in the
space of not more than two minutes, not a colored
person was in Court. A carriage was at hand in
School street, and the women were placed in it,and
drove up School street, down Beacon street, and
over the Mill-dam.
After the shock occasioned by this high-handed
outrage had in some degree subsided, Judge Shaw
expressly stated he had passed no order for the dis-
charge of the slaves, but was going into an explana-
tion of the power of the agent and the legal course
for him to pursue, when the rescue was effected,
and interrupted him. The Sheriff was sent for and
apprised of the rescue, and Judge Shaw said to
him-"Mr. Sheriff, the persons were in your custo-
dy, and, as I have passed no order for their dis-
charge, you must be looked to for them."
A person, who was standing by, when Mr. Sew.
all came into Court, tells us, that Sheriff Sumner
took him by the hand and said to him-"I wish you
success in your cause, sir."
After the Judge left the Court, several of the
Abolitionists gathered round Mr. Turner, who a-
vowed himself to be a member of the Colonization
Society, and grossly insulted him. Two ladies-a
Mrs. H. G. Chapman and a Mrs. Southwick, assail-
ed him with great warmth. One of them told him,
he "was a rascally slave-holder and ought to be
killed." A young light-haired lad annoyed him ex-
tremely by his insolence. A dark-complexioned
young man, in spectacles,was also very impertinent
The following dialogue passed between Messrs
Sewell and Fisk:-
Mr Fisk-I'm pretty sure I heard you tell the wo-
men to clear out,
Mr Sewell-I went to them and told them they
were at liberty, and to clear out, or that RASCAL
would be after them.
Mr Fisk-Don't call the gentleman a rascal,
Mr Sewell-I call any man a rascal who will at-
tempt to take a slave,
Mr Huggeford, at the head of some officers and a
dozen respectable gentlemen, who volunteered their
services, went in swift pursuit of the fugitives, as
soon as vehicles could be procured, At the last ac-
counts they were half a mile in the rear of them,
An Anti.slavery meeting was advertised to be
held at Congress Hall yesterday afternoon, but in
consequence of the tremendous excitement created
by the outrage on the Supreme Judiciary, in the
morning, the lessees of the Hall caused it to be
closed, Had the meeting been held, the building
would undoubtedly have been sacked, by the dense
and excited multitude without. Several colored
people of both sexes came to attend the meeting,
and several whites, but they were laughed away,
and no disturbance took place.

Amateurs of rowing will find much amusement
by an occasional visit to Fairmount, to take a view
of the different boat clubs on the Schuylkill-among
the boats,we have noticed one called II Pirata,a very
handsome barge, about forty-four feet long, and
built upon a model apparently well calculated for
swiftness. The club are fine looking young men,
whose healthful appearance is no doubt in a mea-
sure caused by the exercise. The uniform of the
Pirata club is very neat and appropriate.
Attempt to Murder.-A man genteely dressed
and well connected in this city, named Michael
Vail, was arrested yesterday morning, by some ci-
tizens, for an attempt to kill his wife, Mary Vail, by
shooting her with a pistol. From all we have heard,
we gather the following particulars. For about 18
years, Vail (who has been up once or twice, for
threatening his wife, and for general misconduct,)
has been an intemperate man and very passionate.
A few years since, Mrs. Vail parted from him, and
lie was only permitted occasionally to see her. His
conduct of late has been so outrageous, that he was
not permitted to enter the house at all, as she was
really afraid of him. On Sunday morning, he cross-
ed from Long Island, where he has been residing
for some time, and went to her house, No. 83 Cher-
ry street, in the basement of which two of her 'sons
house, and he then demanded that his child, a boy
aged 13 or 14, should be delivered to him,and when
this was refused, his rage was unbounded; he
threatened his son and the whole family with death,
but finally he went off and was not heard of until
Early, about half-past 6 o'clock, he stationed him-
self opposite to the house, and as Mrs. Vail was a-
bout to enter, on her return from market,he crossed
over, took a pistol from his sleeve, and taking deli-
berate aim, fired. The ball entered her back just
below the shoulder blade, and passed upward, lodg-
ing near the clavicle. Her life was only preserved
by his firing as she was in the act of turning.
Feeling herself wounded, she ran into the store of
her son and fell senseless into his arms. She was
carried up stairs, and Dr. D.L. Rogers was instant-
ly sent for, who after a minute examination of the
wound and the course of the ball, pronounced her
out of danger, thus relieving her children of the
dreadful fear of losing a mother by such a' violent
death. Vail was arrested by some citizens who saw
him fire the pistol, and carried at once to the Bride-
well. While going there, he said he was an un-
happy man, and would as soon be hung as not,
and he added he would have shot his son, had he
met him. Mrs. Vail is a lady who has ever pos-
sessed the esteem of all who knew her, and it is
much to be lamented that she was ever united to a
man of his temper and habits. He ,will probably
not be examined until her recovery is pronounced
certain.-JN. Y. Sun.
A second and final election to fix the seat of
justice of this county, (erected out of parts of
Northampton and Pike counties) took place on the
26th ult. The result was as follows:

and a cure for the bite of poisonous serpents, &c."
The charge for the application of the "Stone" to
the first wound is $25, and $1 for each subsequent
The other day a party of ten persons of both sex-
es, were crossing the Hudson from Saugerties to
Tivoli, in a little boat rowed by two of the party.-
As they reached the middle of the river, a large
sturgeon sprang from the water in front of them and
threw his huge length into the bottom of the boat,
passing directly between the feet of the two gentle-
men who sat foremost, and laying himself exactly
in the middle under the seats. Great was the sur-
prise and confusion; but one of the gentlemen im-
mediately caught the floundering fish by the tail,
and tied it fast with the boat's painter. The creat-
ure in the mean time uttered the most plaintive
sounds, moaning with a noise much like that of a
cow. It was taken to Tivoli, where it was found
to measure eight feet and a half in length, and to
weigh one hundred and fifty pounds. It was then
cut up and given to the workmen of a foundry on
the eastern bank of the river, who made an ex-
cellent supper on this Albany beef. If the sturgeon
had thrown himself on one side of the heavily load.
ed boat, it would have been overset, or if he had
darted among the women and children who sat in
the hinder part of the boat,and one of whom was an
infant, there is no knowing what might have hap-
pened.-N. Y. Eve, Star.
Dreadful lloodshed in Spain.-The extent of
bloodshed in Spain since the commencement of the
civil war which is still raging with unmitigated fury,
is truly appalling, and much greater probably than
the American public has imagined. It is stated in
the Jorabado, a Madrid journal, received a few days
since from an arrival at Boston, from the beginning
of the war in 1833, to the first of April 1836, there
have been tawo hundred and eighty thousand, five
hundred and thirty five Carlists, killed in the
field of battle, and 54,498 fallen prisoners. Of the
Queen's army one hundred and fifty seven thou-
sand, eight hundred and seventy four, have been
killed, 39,618, taken prisoners. Within the above
period 546 battles have been fought, in which the
