Patent Piano Fortes.
THOMAS C. LOUD, No. 306 Chesnut street, (op-
posite Girard Row,) manufactures and has for
sale, at his Piano Forte and Music Store, Thomas
Loud's newly invented Patent Grand Action Piano
Fortes, with front regulation, including the classes of
his Patent Braced Detached Metallic Plate Piano
Fortes, and his improved Patent Compensation Tube
Piano Fortes, with Metallic Supporting Brace.
The Patent Grand Action, as introduced into these
Piano Fortes, possesses the important improvement of
front regulation,without the use of the inclined plane
method of relieving the hammer, common in English
grand action,'and consequently without the dull and
shlggish effect of touch attendant upon such a motion.
The tones produced nre very full and prompt,and are
capable of every variation of power to the most deli-
cate-the touch is light and free, and the action is of
the most durable character, with metallic centres in
all its parts.
The Patent Detached Metallic Plate Is an improve.
ment that adds considerably to the volume and purity
of the tone, and is of immense strength; and by itis
arrangement relieves the case or wood work of the
Piano Forte from most of the strain from the tension
of the strings.
HThe Patent Compensation Tube Piano Forte,as now
improved.with four tubes,and the metallic supporting
braces considered the most perfect support known in
Piano Fortes. In this arrangement, the whole of the
tension of the strings is thrown on the compensation
tubes, and divested from any supportderived from the
case, the tubes being fully ample for all the purposes
of support; while from the lightness and disconnexion
with the vibratory parts of the instrument, the tone
remains uninjured and free. And as the tubes, from
their being made of the same metal as the strings, are
acted upon by the same changes of heat and cold,and
expand and contract w th them,.they yield a compen-
sating support, and are suited for every variation of
climate, retaining the pitch and tune of the strings in
an extraordinary degree.
THOMAS C. LOUD respectfully informs the pub-
lic that his manufactory is entirely under the direction
of his father, THOMAS LOUD, whose reputation as
a practical Piano Forte maker, has been favorably
known for many years past.

Philadelphia., Dec. 15, 183a.
I do hereby certify, that I was afflicted with a malignant
disease for a long time, and I have tried a great many kinds
of medicines, but ot no use. I have tried a great many
Doctors, but none could do me any good until I heard of
the celebrated Dr. HUET. I went to him-he found me in
a very bad state, but he undertook to cure me oB the most
reasonable terms--o I went under his care. He gave me
some of his medicine, and in a little time I began to e-
cover, and in three weeks I wis perfectly cured. i there-
fore can recommend all those afflicted with the same dis-
ease to the candor and superior knowledge of Dr HURT,
No. S7 north Eighth st. ISAAC MELL!N,
Northampton Connty.

Philadelphia, March 3, 1836.
Dear Sir: I return you my sincere thanks for your valu-
able medicine and speedy cure you have made of me. I
had the misfortune to be afflicted with a disease called Oo-
norrhcea. and not understanding it I applied to a Doctor,
who agreed to cure me in a short time, and I paid him his
charge. I remained under his treatment tfor the space of
three months, anei I taund no relief by him. I then left
him and applies to a celebrated Doctor-he attended me
or two months and more; I found no relief. I then ap-
plied to three other Doctors, but all in vain; I then gave
up all hopes of ever getting cured. One day I saw Dr.
Huet's advertisement; I then thought proper to try him-I
was then at my worst state. In lebs than two weeks I tell
a great deal better, and in two weeks more I felt myself
quite recovered; I gained new strength and fine appetite.
and was able to attend to my business. I would advise all
who suffer under this disease to lose no time to apply te
him,who can relieve them. I return him my sincere thanks.
I rmeain your humble servant,
HENRY BULLUCK, in Green street,
No. 13 Danger's Court.

January 10th, 1835.
About two years ago I caught the secret disease, and not
understanding it I applied to a Doctor, who agreed to cure
me in a short time, and 1 paid him his charge and remain-
ed underhis treatment for the space of three months, atnd
found no relief. I then lett hih, and applied to another
Doctor, and was under his care for six months, and still
getting worse I was forced to go to the Hospital, and there
remained for a long time, and got no relief; but fortunate-
ly one of Dr. Huet's books fell into my hands; I read it,
sad was inclIned to try him; but my money being run out,
I left the Hostital in a sate of despair, and went to him
and stated:my ease- he took me in hand to cure melin three
weeks, which I could not believe; but thanks be to God, in
one week I went to work, and in less than three weeks was
entirely well and any one applying te you, and being
doubtful of te same, can call on me, and I will satisfy
:3Dr. Huet will give my direction.

August 10th, 1835.
I dohereby certify that I have been for many years
afflicted with cough and pain in my breast, attended
with expectoration of large quantities of blood and
matter from my lungs, and I finally became so bad as
to be confined to my bed. I had hectic fever with
night sweats, diarrhea, great emaciation, constant
cough; and every one who saw me-believed that I was
in the last stage of consumption, and had no expecta-
tion that I would be any better. 1 was amended by
Dr. H. H. HIGBEE, andti through the medicine pre-
pared and presented by him, I was restored to health
from my apparently desperate situation, and have
since had no return of the pulmonary symptoms.

a Safe Depository for the Savings of Labor, and the
Surplus of Incomes, under an ample security of his
Estate, at the full rate of legal interest-a security
which he believes no other institution possesses-and
a rate of Interest which he is certain is not paid by

always to obtain for his savings; and the individual re-

he will accept no more on Deposite than his interest
calls for, on the single principle of his liability; and

bably there is no public hall in this country that ex-

D-URING the ensuing Session of the Legislature,
the KEYSTONE will be published twice a
week, and contain full reports of the proceedings in
Both Houses. It will also contain an account of the
proceedings of the Relbform Convention, which, (judg-
ing from similar bodies in other States, and the Con-
vention that formed our present Constitution,) will
hardly close its session before spring.,
The political complexion of the Legislature.and the
important subjects which will necessarily come be-
fore it, will render the next session peculiarly inter-
esting. All eyes are turned this way for speedy Re-
form in our present defective Currency. Decided ac-
tion relative to the improvement system is ardently
desired in many quarters. These two matters of
themselves, form subjects of intense interest to the
people at large.
On the 4th of March, a Democratic Convention will
assemble here and nominate a candidate for Govern-
or. An account of this, together with the preparatory
movements of the party in all quarters, will be faith-

ver was a time when a paper from the Seat of Go-
vernment will be of such indispensable valise to all
the citizens of the Commonwealth, as for the ensuing
six months.

The federalists are evidently disheartened with
the result of the late election in this State, for the
Inquirer is beginning already to harp on the glorious
prospects of Governor Ritner for the next cam-
paign. 'The prospect,' says that paper, ,is indeed
most gratifying and cheering!'--very. The late
result shews that the Ritnerites have, in the course
of one year, lost several thousand votes, and that ta-
king the whole State, their vote was upwards of
eight thousand less than that polled by the demo-
cratic party. If our contemporary really finds a
cheering and gratifying prospect in these facts, he
must be an adept in extracting sunbeams from cu-
cumbers; but we suspect that the object is to create
a spirit of hope and confidence, where there is at
present nothing but gloom and despair. This is
the usual course of the opposition in Pennsylvania.
They are always loudest when they have least

Captain Charles F. Muench, of Harrisburg, has
been appointed Deputy Ma shal of the Eastern
District of Pennsylvania.

The President, accompanied by Mr. Poinsett
and lady, Mr. Dickerson, Mr. Kendall and daugh-

The following are the amendments made in Com-
mittee of the Whole, to the 6th article of the Co,-
stitution :
"Prothonotaries and Clerks of the several Courts

who shall be appointed by the Court for the term
of three years, if they so long behave themselves
well,) Recorders of Deeds, and Registers of Wills,
shall at the times and places of election of Repre-
sentatives, be elected by the citizens of each coun-
ty, or the districts over which the jurisdictions of
said Court extend,'and shall be commissioned by
the Governor. They shall hold their offices for
three years, if they should so long behave them-
selves well, and until their successors shall be duly
qualified. The Legislature shall provide by law the
number of persons in each county who shall hold
sttid offices, and how many and which of said offi-
ces shall be held by one person. Vacancies in any
of the said offices shall be filled by an appointment
to be made by the Governor, to continue until the
next General Election, and until a successor shall
be elected and qualified aforesaid."'
"Justices of the Peace and Aldermen shall be
elected in the several wards, boroughs and town-
ships. at the time of the election of Constable,by the
qualified voters thereof, and shall be commissioned
by the Governor for a term of five years."
All officers whose election or appointment is
not provided for in this Constitution, shall be elect-
ed or appointed as shall be directed by law."
"A State Treasurer shall be elected annually
by both branches of the Legislature."
"All officers for a term of years shall bold their
offices for the terms respectively specified, only on
condition that thqy so long behave themselvee'well,
and shall be removed on conviction of misbehavior
in office, or of any infamous crime."
"The freemen of this Commonwealth shall be
armed, organized, and disciplined for its defence,
when and in such manner as mab be directed by
la-sv,. Those who conscientiously scruple to bear
arms, shall not be compelled to do so, but shall
pay an equivalent for such personal service."
Any person who shall, after the adoption of the
amendments proposed by this Convention to the
Constitution, fight a duel,or knowingly be the bear-
er of a challenge to fight a duel, or sent or accept a
challenge for that purpose, or be aider or abettor in
fighting a duel, shall be deprived of the right of
holding any office of honor or profit in this State,
and shall be punished otherwise in such manner as
is or may be prescribed by law; but the Executive
may remit the said offence, and all its disqualifica-
tious." ,
The Convention have nowy under discussion, in
Committee of the Whole, the following amend-
ment, offered by Mr Woodward, to the 5th Article
of the Constitutien, relating to the Judiciary:
"The Judges of the Supreme Court shall hold
their offices respectively for the term of ten years,
but may be re-appointed. The president judges of
the several courts of common pleas, and the judges
of the several district courts, and of such other
courts as now are or hereafter may be established
by law, shall hold their offices for the term of seven
years,' but may be be reappointed. The associate
judges of the several counties shall hold their
offices for the term of five years, but may be reap-
pointed. For any reasonable cause which shall not
be sufficient ground of impeachment, the Governor
may remove any of said judges, on the address of

two-thirds of each branch of the legislature. The
said judges shall at stated times receive for their
services adequate salaries, to be fixed by law,which
shall not be diminished during their continuance in
office, but they shall receive no fees, travelling ex-
penses, per diem allowances, or perquisites of
office, nor hold any other office of profit under this
Consmmonwealth. Provided that after the ratifica-
t'oa and adoption of this Constitution, the Gover-
nor shall, by and with the consent of the Senate,
reappoint one of the ten existing judges of the Su-
preme court for the term of two years, one of them
(or the term of four years, one ofthem for the term
af eight years, and one of them for the term of ten
years and whenever any vacancy occurs on the
bench of the Supreme court, by the death, resigna-
tion, or removal of any judge thereof, the Governor
shall in the manner aforesaid fill such vacancy by
the appointment of a judge for the unexpired term
of the judge so deceased, resigning or removed."

appearance here, and is very highly spoken of as a
ballad singer by the critics of New York. In the
instrumental department, in addition to Gambati,
whose merits are familiar to the amateurs of Phila-

The Roche- er Murder.---The Rochester Demo-
crat of Thursday says, the perpetrators of this dark
deed seem destined speedily to be exposed. Yester-
day a number of astounding facts were developed,
and others are in a train of development which can
hardly fail to designate the cold-blooded assassin.
The money taken from Mr. Lyman's pocket has
been discovered, and the handkerchief in which it
was found wrapped up, partially identified. This
discovery was made by Ald. Woodbury, who, in
companywith several others, went in search of it
yesterday morning." They pursued, very nearly, in
their search, the route taken by young Barren, (one
of the three under examination,) when he fled from
the office at the City Hotel to the Rail Road depot.
It was found between two piles of pine wood,which
stand near the depot, tied up in a white handker-
chief. The money has been identified as a portion
of that which Mr. Lyman was known to have in his
possession. It amounted to about $470. He also
had six or eight gold pieces in his pocket. Three or
four of these, it is supposed, have been found upon
one of the three young men; and other circumstan-
ces have been brought to light, which go far to give
suspicion a locality, but which, at this stage of the
examination, it would not be proper for us to de-
The Rochester Advertiser of Thursday says:----
The Court House was thronged all day yesterday,
as on the preceding day, to witness the examina-
tion of the three prisoners charged with the assas-
sination and robbery of William Lyman.
Their names are Octavius Barren, Peter Phil-
well, and Thomas Bennett. The two first named
are French Canadians. Bennett is a tailor----Phil-
well a boat builder-and Barren a jeweller. The
two first are aged about 21--the latter 17 or 18.
It is apparent from all accounts, that the priso-
ners are dissolute young men--frequenters of
gambling-houses, &c.
The evidence,though not yet conclusive,is strong
against these men, and their stories are found not
to be consistent with truth.

Loss of the English Steam Packet Don Juan.--
The~splendid steam packet Don Juan, plying be-
tween England and Gibraltar, of nine hundred and
fifty tons burthen, and six hundred horse power,
was lost the 15th September, on Tariffa Point, six-
teen miles from Gibraltar, on her passage from that
port to England. The passengers, crew, and spe-
cie ($30,000) saved--the vessel and cargo, about
100 tons fruit, 100 tons lead, and other merchan-
dize, a total loss. There was insurance effected on
the Don Juan at Lloyd's for 40,000. She run
upon a rock in a fog, and sunk almost immediate-

ARRIVAL or U. S. SaRI PZAcocx.-Arrived
on the 26th inst., at Norfolk, after a passage of 37
days, from Bahia, the U. S. ship "Peacock, C. K.
Stribling, Esq., Commander, bearing the broad
pendant of Commodore E. P. Kennedy.
The Peacock sailed from New York on the 23d
of April, 1835, and has circumnavigated the world,
touching at Rio Janeiro, Sychang Islands,Cochin,
China, and Macao, in China.
She sailed thence June 23d, 1836, for the U.
States, via Cape Horn, touching at the Bonin and
%Sandwich Islands, Monterey, in Upper California,
Massathu, San Blas,and Acapulco, Mexico; Payda,
Huacho; Callao and Pisco in Peru; Juan Fernan-
dez and Valparaiso; remaining some months on
the coast of South America, whence, after the arri-
val of the South Carolina, she sailed for Norfolk.
She has been absent two year's and six months,
having been in that period 524 days at sea, and has
sailed 45, 28 miles per log.
Though five different epidemics have passed
through the ship, and the number of sick has at
times been very great, the deaths amongst the crew
h,ive only been ten, and the health of the officers
and crew is now completely re-established.
The visit of the Peacock to these different coun-
tries has no doubt been attended with considerable
benefit to the interests of our commerce, and we
trpst that the attention of our government having
beenturnedil to this subject, the large amount of
American property in the eastern seas will not again
be left without the protection of our navy.
Tweny-two distressed American seamen have
been brought from Rio Jeneiro, as passengers, in
addition to a number shipped in different parts in
the ciuise.

GREAT ROBBxRx.-$500 REWARD.-We re-
gret to learn that one of our Rochester merchants
has met with a heavy loss on his route to New
York. Mr P. B. L. Smith was robbed of about
ed from his trunk, between Syracuse and Albany
A handbill sent back, after mentioning a variety of
papers, gives the following particulars of the mo-
$3600, in Safety Fund Notes of this State, a
majority of which were on the Rochester City Bank,
principally 5's and 10's, and 500 in 20's. $2025
in Michigan Banks, mostly of Detroit city, 5's, 10's
and 50, and one 20 on River Raisin or Michigan
State Bank. $728 in Eastern small, some 5's
and 10's. $500 on various banks, Eastern, Cana-
da, a little Ohio and Michigan, and $2000 in Gold,
Sovereigns, half do, half Eagles and quarter do,
contained in a shot bag. The bank notes were all
in a smalljapaned trunk. There was a package
addressed to Messrs. Carpenter, Griffin & Co. N.
Y. containing $1150, also two addressed to Messrs.
Mount, Son & Co. N. Y; one containing $2000,
and tha other (done up in pink paper) containing
$1000. The residue of the notes were done up
in packages of $500, $250, &c.
$500 is offered for the money, or $250 for the

of Mr Smith, the merchant who was robbed of

EGYPTIANi WUEAT.-The following paragraph,
showing the very curious mode in which the wheat
was introduced into the Wisconsin Territory, is
taken from the Chicago American of 14th inst.
"We have received a specimen of Egyptian
wheat, raised this season on Rock river. The seed
was taken by our informant from the crop of a
bird of passage, and this is the second season in
which he has cultivated it. Four or five seeds
were all that he put into the ground the first sea-
son, and this year he has a garden spot full of it.
It has three pronged stems, and isa beautiful and
superior production."

STAGE AccirtESr.-As the "People's Line" for
Pittsburg was passing through this town, on Wed-
nesday last, with nine passengers, it upset in the
street, and exhibited a scene seldom witnessed by
our citizens. The shrieks of infancy and the groans
of the wounded were said to have been distressing.
Upon examination only four of the passengers
appeared to be much injured, viz:-Mr En-
glish, of New Jersey, Mr Eager, of Dayton, Ohio,
and Mrs Peebles and Mr Forsyth, of Bedfordcoun-
ty, Pa. The three last mentioned are cut and
bruised severely,thought not so as to endanger their
lives. Mr English has a compound fracture of the
left arm, near the middle of the bone, with a very
extensive contusion of the right hand. These, in
connection with his age, (76);renders his recovery
extremely doubtful.
The stage was upset on a piece of road as good
as any between Philadelphia and Pittsburg, by the
wanton and reckless conduct of the driver, a Mr
McIntyre.--Greensbnrg Pa. Argus.

PANTANELII.-It is with unfeigned regret tha t
we announce the death of this delightful songstress.
She expired at Havana of the Yellow Fever, one
among the many victims to that remorseless mala-.
dy. The New Orleans public will learn this mel,
ancholy event with sorrow. They had witnessed
the splendid efforts of this talented artist, and crown-
ed her with the wreath of triumph. Her laurels are
now faded, and herself can only survive in the me-
mory of those who have witnessed the exertion of
her fascinating powers, and remember her as Ro-
meo, Arsacc and Norma.--JVew Orleans Bee.

Fre-" the Journal of Commerce.
Some time in the month of June last, a Milesian
named Bryan McCarthy, who for aught we know
may be a lineal descendant of one of Ossian's he-
roes, had the misfortune to lose his wife, who died
in this city, leaving poor Bryan so poor that he was
obliged to send the two male heirs of his house to
the Alms-house, from whence they were sent to
the farm on Long Island. About the same period,
another Milesian of the same name, but different
familynamely Mrs.Mary M'Dermott,who so far for-
got what was due to her high lineage and noble
birth, that she fell desperately into love with gin
and bhters, and was sent to get rid of her attach-
ment to the Penitentiary. Mary was a married wo-
man, and like most of Mrs. M'Dermott's, had pro-
vided an heir to her estate, and when the mother
went to enjoy the air of Blackwell's Island, the
young gentleman was sent'to finish his education
with the other young M'Dermotts at the Country
,College of the Alms-house. Here the three little
M'Dermotts were so well fed and taken'care of,
that as it turned out, in a very short space af time,
their very nearest relatives could not know them.

As soon as Mrsd. McDermont had re-establisheJ
her health at her country residence, she was libera-
ted, and immediately commenced a suit against her
husband for separate maintenance, and the latter
paid $100 to the Alms House in trust for his wife
and heir. Possessed of so much money, Mrs. Mc-
Dermont thought it beneath her dignity to have her
son at the Alms House, and applied to have hima re-
stored to her, and received an order to have himj
given up, On obtaining this order Mrs. McDer-
mont "flew on the wings of maternal love," and
without stopping to take a drop of gin on her jour-
ney, arrived at the Farm and demanded the restitu-
tion of her little larling. There happened, howe-
ver, to be some dozen of little McDermotts there at
the same time, and the "marks and tokens," which
she gave of the one she wanted, answered so com-
pletely for some four or five others, that they were
all paraded before her, and she could not tell which
of them was her own. One thing, however, she
was certain of, that of all the MeDermotts from
Cork tu Conntaught, none of them was half so pur-
ty as her own Jimmy, q4d accordingly after tho-
roughly examining them all, she lIid claim to the
finest child among them, and took him home with
her;aud to crown her happiness, her husband went
back to live with her.
SIn the mean time, Mr. Brian McDern~ott, who
had also left his two sons in the Alms House, ex-
perienced a great change of circumstances by get-
ing another wife and fortune, in consequence of
which, he also determined to bring home his chil-
dren, and applied for them at the Alms House, and
got an order to have them delivered to him.
One only of them, however, was forthcoming, and
Mr McDermott sternly demanded what became of
the other. Colonel Mann opened his register and
found that ont of all the McDermotts who were in

some dangerous coast, or lost amidst the conflict of
elements which they will be forced to encounter.-
Is this true? Are we about cut loose from banks?
Why, sir, they have cut loose from us! They have
divorced themselves; or rather they have eloped
from our bed and board, without just cause or pro-
vocation; and have carried off all the money and
jewelry they could find out the house at the time
of their elopement. All that we say is, thatif they
attempt to return, we shall shut the doors upon
them; and, in the mean time, give notice that we
will pay no debts of their contracting after this
date! If any roan trust them, it will be his affair,
not ours. This is our position,' and it is nothing
more nor less. They have left us, and not we them;
and we have no dispaition to renew the connec.
tion. Hereafter, we intend to take care of our
money ourselves. We cLaim the same right as
every man fi the country exercises-the right to
manage our own fund, without employing banks
to do it for us. No one can complain of this. The
banks have no more right to the money of the Go-
vernment than they have to that of individuals.-
The law declared that, if they suspended specie
payments, they would no longer be public deposi-
tories. They did suspend, and the Secretary
obeyed the law. That is the whole story."

The Columbia (Pa.) Spy of Saturday says:
Our town has been thrown into a state of great
excitement in consequence of an outrageous act
committed on Monday night last, by another of the
gang of desperadoes who infest that quarter of the
town called "Tow Hill." It appears that about 11
o'clock on the night in question, Mr Benjamin
Peart, a very respectable farmer, residing immedi-
ately outside of the precincts of the borough, close
to the turnpike road leading to Lancaster, head a
noise in his pig-sty, asd in going to it, in order to
ascertain the meaning of it, perceived a negro help-
ing himself to a couple ofshoats, whose throats he
had cat, apd was in the act of depositing them in a
bag. Mr Peart at once went forward to save his
property, and secure the thief. Mr. P. caught the
villain, but in the straggle received a thrust from a
knife in the stomach and a continued cut quite
across it, before the instrument was withdrawn,
and several other stabs in ditrent parts of his
person. ,.
Still he held o4, until exhausted from loss of

The Church choir, accompanied by the organ,
then commenced singing an appropriate hymn, to
the solemn and impressive tune of Old Hundred,
during which Bishop Smith took his place within
the chancel. After the hymn had closed, Bishop
Mcllvanie pronounced a benediction and dismissed
the audience. There were but few dry eyes in the
Church, and the Court itself were deeply affected
by the scene. Many of the congregation, as soon
as dismissed, overcome with their emotions, rushed
towards the chancel, to congratulate the accused
upon his acquittal, and to take an affectionate leave
of the Right Rev. gentlemen composing the court,
whose amiable and dignified deportment, during
their stay in Lexington, has won for them the re-
spect, confidence and esteem of all who becAme ac-
quainted with them, They have left an Impres-

We trust, now that the investigation into the
conduct of the Rt. Rev. B. B. Smith, which has so
long been a theme of discussion, is closed, and
the final decision given, that the subject from this
time forth will be dropped and forgotten. *' It has
been the occasion of much angry comment and
many harsh remarks, pro and con, from those who
took sides for or against the individual chiefly con-
cerned. It has brought into collision those who, up
to the time of the breaking our of these difficulties,
had been warm friends, in and out of the church,
and produced many painful alienations, Blame
may possibly attach to both sides-all that has been
offensive should, therefore, be buried in oblivion.
and social intercourse resume its wonted cordiality.

PXACE street, on Saturday night last, strangely

By order of the Carlist deputation of Guipuzcoa,
every man in that province is to take up arms in fa-
vor of Don Carlos. There are already 3,500 men
under arms. An order from Santander, we hear,
has arrived at St. Sebastian,requiring five battalions
of the line of Hernanli to be sent over immediately
to the former town. The line of Hernani appears
thus about to be entry abandoned. The English
are occupying Fontarabia and the Passage,and the
Christinos, St. Sebastian. The silver plate of the
churches of Navarre, was not sold, after all, at St.

Bayonne, 29th Sept., half past 11 o'clock, A.

portant than was at first imagined. The PretenI
dex is making a precipitate retreat. A division of
6000 men, detached from his army, has been met
and dispersed by Orsa in the environs of Sacedon.
The General is pursuing the Carlist division to-
wards the south. His head-quarters were the day
before yesterday at Huete. Espartero writes from
Fuentes, that he is about to continue his pursuit of
the main body of the rebel army, which is retiring
in disorder in the direction of Trillo. Deserters
are continually arriving, and the public feeling of
the population appears to have been re-awakened
in favor of the constitutional cause. The elections
commenced yesterday in Madrid, and continue

officers, and also 500 deserters. Brigadier Miranda,
the commander of the Carlist cavalry, was among

to have excited mOre alarm in certain quarters'than

To the Convention-eto amend the Constitution of
Pennsylvania, now sitting at Harrisburg.
The memorial of the subscribers, citizens of
the County of Bucks, respectfully represents:-
That from the foundation of the Province of
Pennsylvania by William Penn and his coadju-
tors, the negro race have always been considered
and treated by our laws, and the universal practice
under them, as inferior in political condition to the
white,-never having been considered or treated as
a part of the political community in whom the
powers of Government was vested, but as subordi-
nate and absolutely subject to such disposition as
the white government might make in relation to
them. That this is correct, your memorialists be-
lieve plainly appears from the early province law,
passed by William Penn and his associates for the,
government of negroes, and many laws passed
since and still subsisting. Since the act of 1780,
however, the negroes have been relieved from the
operations of those earlier laws (which subjected
them, among other things, to be tried even for capi-
tal offences, in a summary manner without a jury)
and by force of that act, we presume have civil
rights as distinguished from political,which enables
them to pursue their fortunes and happiness in
every way they may choose, except that they can-
not interfere with, or in any wise control the gov-
ernment of the whites by an assumption of politi-
cal power. Your memorialists are well content
that such negroes as these are among us, should
enjoy all means of advancing their happiness, ex-
cept that we will not consent that they shall at-
tain political power. Yet we now represent the
fact, that the negroes in the county of Bucks, have
claimed, and for some years, have been permitted
to exercise the right to vote-that frequently the
majority of the whites has been controlled by the
votes of the blacks, and that at the last election,
one member of assembly, the county commission-
er and auditor, are returned as elected by the force
of the votes of blacks, when their opponents would
have elected, except for the negro suffrage.
Your memorialists believing that their rights as
white citizens and freemen has thus been violated
and trampled upon by negroes,and those who have
sustained them, request that a clause be inserted in
the Constitution, expressly providing that no one
of the Negro race be permitted to vote for any pub-
lic office whatsoever.,
Your memorialists would also call attention
to the manifest design of a considerable class of
abolitionists and amalgamationists, to interfere with
and prostrate the compact in theConstitution of the
United States, between the northern States and our
brethren of the South. Believing that if the mad
design of these men shall succeed, that it will be
productive of civil war and wide spread desolation,
we respectfully ask that if any constitutional provi-
sion #n remedy the evil, that it be applied.

From the Lexington, Ky. Intelligence, Oct. 20.
The Ecclesiastical Court, assembled for the trial
of the Right Rev. B. B. Smith, Bishop of the Dio-
cese of Kentucky, composed of the Rt. Rev. Chas.
P. Mcllvaine, Bishop of Ohio, the Rt. Rev. Jack-
son Kemper, Bishop of Missouri and Indiana, and
the Rt. Rev. Samuel A. McCoskry,Bishop of Mich-
igan, closed its labors on.Wednesday last, after a
most laborious session of three weeks and three
The decision ef the court in the case was read
on Wednesday at 11 o'clock, A. M. by bishop Mc-
Ilvaine, president of the court. The "charges"
against bishop Smith, were six in number, and the
"specifications'" under these several charges were
one hundred and thirty-four. The canons of the
Diocese, prescribing the mode of the trial, made it
imperative upon the court to decide upon each spe-
cification separately, and pronounce "guilty" or
"not guilty," that is to say, according to the expla-
nation of the court, whether the facts alleged in the
specifications were true or not true. The court
found the accused, under this signification of the
term, "GUILTY" of some of the speci/ications,'(how
many we do not remember) without criminality;but
found him "not guilty" on all~the charges preferred
aga nst him, in the presentment, and fully and hon-
orably acquitted him.
The close of this trial was one of the most so-
lemn, impressive and affecting scenes'we have ever
witnessed. Christ's Church, where the trial was
held, was crowded in every part, by an audience
manifesting the most intense interest in the result.
The accused, habited in a rochet,was seated in front
of the Court, in the left aisle of the Church, sup-
ported by the Rev. Mr. Jackson of Louisville. On
a chair in front of the accused were hung his robes
of office. The Bishops composing the Court were
habited in their full official costume, and made a
most imposing appearance. During the reading of
the decision, the most profound silence reigned in
the Church, all eyes being fixed with the intense
anxiety upon the Right Rev. President of the Court.
A soon as the final result was pronounced, the au-
dience, to manifest their approbation, commenced
clapping; which, however, was immediately arrest-
ed by the President ef the court, who raised his
hand in token of his request that silence should be
observed. He then, en behalf of himself and his
associates, said, in substance,that the Right Rev. B.
B. Smith, having beea acquitted of the charges
alleged against him, they were ready to receive him
in the most perfect and unreserved confidence, after
he was re-invested in his robes of office, into the
place he had before occupied within the chancel,
and to salute him as their brother in the church,
and as worthy of Christian and official fellowship
with them.

FATAL OCCURRENCE.-On Saturday forenoon
three boys, two of whom are the sons of John G.
Rohr, tailor,corner of Greenwich and' Canalstreets,
went upon a shooting excursion, and when in the
vicinity of the village of Bloomingdale, commenced
firing around the premises of Mr. Norton. Mrs. N.
fearing some mischief might ensue from the proxi-
mity of the firing to the dwelling house, called the
gardener, an Irishman named John Smith, giving
him directions to drive ;he sportsmen away. Smith,
who was at the time engaged at work in a potato
,field, immediately proceeded to obey the orders he
had received, upon which two of the trespassers
went off the premiseslat his approach; but the other,
the eldest of the Rohr's, aged obout 16, disputed
the right of the proprietor to turn him off, and with
the greatest effrontery proceeded to level his piece
for another shot. Whereupon Smith seized hold
of him with the.intention of putting him into the
road, when the gun went off, and the contents
were lodged'in the heart of the unfortunate gardener,
who died almost instantly. The boys were all im-
mediately arrested and held in custody until the ar-
rival of the coroner, when they were discharged in
accordance with the verdict of the jury, who agreed
that the deceased came to his death by accident!!!
This foolish, sham-sportsman, European practice
of vagabond izing, has become a serious greivance
to the inhabitants of our suburbs, and should be put
a stop to forthwith. Scarcely an hour passes in the
day that whole squads of these sporting apes are
not to be met with, dressed in their fustian York-
shire coats and gaiters, marauding caps, shot belts
and game bags, accoutered, as one would suppose
from appearances, for a North Western expedition,
accompained generally by a parcel of mongrel dogs
-treading down the honest gardener's cellery beds,
shooting his goslings, which they mistake for wood.
cocks, or trampling through a fine garden of dahlias
in pursuit of two or three half starved robins or an
isolated chirping-bird, doing more mischief and los-
ing more time in one day's poaching, than the
worth of all the "game" they could shoot in a sea-
son. Such mean-spirited, hen-roosting knaves
should all be put in the stocks, or soundly thrashed
at a public whipping post.

FEMALE Paowxss.-The Portsmouth Journal
relates a good story of Mrs. Gerrish, of that town,
whose husband was formerly jailor there. Since his
death, though another man has been appointed to
the office, yet she has performed the official duties.
The other day some prisoners, over a jug of rum
which they had contrived to obtain, were having a
high spree. Mrs. G. heard them quarrelling aud
fighting among themselves at a great rate, and no
man was on hand to render assistance, stop their
yelling and separate them. She mustered all her
courage, and with a rusty horse pistol in her hand,
which had not been loaded for a twelve month, and
having opened the passage way between two rooms,
pointing the pistol, told one of them to leave the
room or remain at his peril. The fellow meekly
submitted; the doors were closed and peace restored.

Mr. Chitty, the celebrated author of English
Law Books, consigns the task of making the In-
dex to his works to one or more of the students in
his office. "I had occasion," said a friend of Mr.
Chitty, "to look into your new work this morning
at the subject of 'Bail.' Upon finding the title I
was thus referred-'see Mr. Justice Best,page 270.'
Upon finding Mr. Justice Best, page 270, I was
thus referred, 'see great mind, page 340,'-and up-
on finding 'great mind, page 340,' I came at last
to the end of my search, and read thus--'The Bail
being guilty of a contempt of Court, Mr. Justice
Best said he had a great mind to commit him."

A CONTRITEXus.-One has often heard of smug&
glers cheating the revenue officers, but very rarely,if
ever,of a custom house man getting on the blind side
of a smuggler, unless by the exercise of his wonted
vigilance. On Friday evening an occurrence took'
place, which proves that a contrabandiste may
sometimes run his head against the wall. Late on
the evening of that day, a man called at a gentle.
man's house in town, and offered a small quantity
of tea for sale-the servant who opened the door
acquainted his master with the opportunity afforded
him, of procuring a supply of hyson. The quantity
for sale was ascertained to be only two pounds.
The servant having got his cue, told the vendor
that he had a friend in the trade, who would buy
all he had, upon which 51bs more were produced;
but this not being thought by the buyer a suffi-
ciently large transaction, the offerer was told to
bring all he had got,and that it wouldall be taken.
The tea man retired, and in half an hour again
made his appearance with 80 Ibs of fine hyson,
which was deposited in the parlor for inspection,&c.
when, in walked a gentleman who put his paw up-
on the whole, in the name of her majesty. The
tea man demanded what business he had there, and
was informed that he was the master of the bouse,
and a custom house officer, and that the tea was
now in possession of the custom house. Jonathan,
for (who'd believe it) it was a Jonathan who thus
took himself in, walked off minus his tea, to the
profit of the seizing officer, and the great' amuse.
ment of a party of friends who were in the adjoin-
ing apartment.-[Mo atreal Ceurier.

From the 21st tothe 28th Oct.

and whereas, resolutions were adopted expressive,
not only of the sentiments of the democracy in re.
lation to the unconstitutionality of the registry act,
but also as to the necessity of prompt, vigorous,
and united action to adopt measures in opposition
thereto, and for the purpose of more effectually or-
ganizing the democratic party, we, the citizens of
the Fourth Ward, Spring Garden, have assembled
this evening to carry into effect, as far as practice
ble, the recommendations set forth in said resolu-
tions-therefore, be it
Resolved, That we will one and all unite with
our disfranchised fellow citizens in demanding from
the Legislature, at its coming session, the repeal
of the obnoxious, unconstitutional, partial, and
infamous registry act, which in its effects deprives
many of our honest and free citizens from the ex-
ercise of their constitutional rights of voting at the
ballot boxes.
- Resolved, That as citizens of the state of Penn-
sylvania, we have at all times, and under all cir-
cumstances, zealously supported all constitutional
legislative enactments; yet whilst we feel disposed
so to support every measure intended, and operat-
ing to-the public good, we deem any law, which
tends to the disfranchisement of the constitutional
rights of our citizens, a just and sufficient cause,
and ground for individual and united resistance,
believing the elective franchise, purchased by the
valor and blood of our sires, the richest legacy be-
queathed to freemen, and which we are determin-
ed, at all hazards, to maintain untramelled.
Resolved, That whilst we deprecate and despise
the base and hypocritical artifices of our old federal
opponents, In assuming the names now appended
to their colls for meetings, whilst the guise of
the wolf but imperfectly- screens their principles
from observation, we earnestly recommend to the
democracy of the State and Union, to give unto
them their true title and name of federalists, under
which name they have heretofore always opposed
the democracy, whose principles they ever were,
and still continue, secretly and openly opposed to,
yet steal and assume the name, to gull, entrap,
and finally corrupt those, whom they endeavor to
deceive into $he support of their party, the more
effectually to overthrow our republican institu-
Resolved, That We sincerely and earnestly re-
spond to the resolutions adopted by the town meet.

ferent wards af the city and county, a thorough
and effiiedntnrianiiation of -associations. takinir
