John Nelville, Collector of the Custom
Natchez, Mississippi, vfhe James Stockman,
has vacated the office.

We are indebted to Messrs Rogers, Brown
Stevenson of the Senate, and to Mr. Ryan of
House, for valuable public documents.

The United States Gazette seems to have ta
the anti-masonic leaders in hand. It gave Th:
deus Stevens a remarkable scourging the o
day, and settled the arrears of an account that
been standing ever since the inquisition at I
risburg, during the session of 1835-6. Yes
day, it took up the editor of the Pittsburgh
zette, and laid on the lash with such vigor of
that the crack of the thong will resound music
among the echoes at the confluence of the Alletm
ny and Monongahela, and will startle the adhere
of" The Unchained" from one end of the ci
monwealth to the other. Though this flagellal
should have been inflicted by whiggery long a
yet,probably, it is all the stronger from having b.
kept, and it is pleasant to see justice done at h
Stevens and company have inflicted vital injury
on the cause of their allies, especially in Pennsyl
nia, andLthey deserve no mercy from that quarl
at least.

(Ohio) Journal is autho.rised to say, that a gi
pump-maker, let his politics be what they may, v
meet with encouragement in that city.
The above may be applied as a good though min
satire upon the rabidity of politics frequently
hibited in our larger cities-in Philadelphia parl
ularly, where unmanly proscription has often be
carried to the most disgraceful extent. In 181
for instance, even "a good pump-maker," with
his mechantical skill, if he had a democratic tu
would have found it difficult to obtain employee
In fact, we remember that this contemptible spi
was carried out so publicly, that some of our viok
opposition newspapers went so far as to publish t
names of coach-makers and others, that their rea
era might not deal with them, and empty-pated pa
tisans have actually refused to patronise a bar
unless he would give up a democratic print whii
he was in the habit of taking. There was a con
plete concert of action among certain politic
witlings in this respect, and it is presumed that th.
even catechised their washerwomen on the subje
of their creed, as regarded the administration ofti
general government, for fear that they might be i
jured, by having work done by the mothers of d
mocrats-such was the miserable effect of politic
excitement upon men of narrow minds and of fe
ble intellect, who were weak enough to belie'
that grasshopper kicks, and musquito-like mali
could bear with effect, in a great contest of princ
pie. Thinking men, of course, whatever their pa
ty, look upon the whole of this system with seer
and loathing-in the first place, because it is cot
temptibly vile in itself, and in the next place, be
cause it is worse than useless as a method of open
tion. Men are not to be affected in this way-sue
attempts at coercion, only make them more finr
and inflexible in opinion, adding fuel to their zea
and force to their resolution. There is one sati
faction, however, in following out the train
thoughts suggested by the Columbus advertisement
for a pump-maker. Though both parties tumb.
their opponents out of office with sufficient alacrity
and though the clamor of proscription is always
raised against democracy, the democratic party hai
never beenguirty of the kind of political persecu
tion to which we have alluded. They never mad
black-lists-of tradesmen and mechanics, to avoi
dealing with them on the score of politics-the
never sent despatches to employers asking the dii
missal of their clerks and th -ir laborers, becaut
they were not orthodox. In social intercourse, th
same likewise holds true. During panic time;
manyof our opponents so far forget themselves,
to allow their party feelings to interfere in private
life, and perhaps to some extent do so still. Sue
sina do not attach to the skirts of democracy, and
is tO If hoped that for the future, on either sidi
they will be no more than a dim reminiscence(
past follies, committed in the very intoxication (
election fury, like the madness of "the rei gn of teo
ror," to which, however, there have been many pil

whites to have been badly whipped, and it is near.
ly time that we should take the same view of the
matter. The language they now use is, 'Let us
alone and we will not molest you--remain at your
posts or your homes, and we will not attack you--
but if you make war on us, we will fight as long as
our ammunition lasts, and when this is gone we
will take to the bow and arrow.'"

At a large meeting of citizens of the city
and coUtt of Philadelphiua held in the Dis-
trict Court Room, on 'lTuesdav evening, May
1., with a view of considering the propriety ol
memorializing the Legislature of the State, for
aid to the Tow Boats on the river Delaware.
The following gentlemen were appointed
officers :-
President.-'HONMAS CAVE.
iee-Prcsid-enis-Thonmas D. Grover, James
Ronaldson, Daniel Smith, John Henmphill,
George Miller, John Vvhite., John Nuglee,
Matthew Vandusen.
'ecretarics-Morgan Ash, J. J. M'Cahan.
The subjoined resolutions were offered, with
some prefatory remarks by Joseph It. Chand-
ler, anid unanimously adopted.
Whereas, this meeting has learned that the
Tow Boat Company of this city are unable
longer to prosecute the labors for which they
were incorporated, for want of means to repair,
and continue their boats in operation; and
Whereas, that Company vws established for
the purposes of general benefit, and with no
expectation of profit to its stockholders, who
contributed to its funds by subscribing to its
stock, solely with a view of continuing 'the na-
vigation of the Delaware as uninterru'nted as
possible during the winter, and of diminishimrng
the disadvantages resulting to our commerce,
arising Irorn the distance between our city and
the ocean; arind
Whereas, these important ends have been
atained in a degree far beyond the most san.
guine expectations indulged at the establish-
ment of thie Company, and with the aid of the
Ice Boat during die last winter, to the extent
of almost destroying all the inconvenience of
climate as well as of distance; and
Whereas, this unwonted state of navigation
gave to our merchants months of business
which they had not before enjoyed-to our
mechanics a demand for their several products
-to those connected with navigation, active
employment-to stevedores, draymen, carters,
and the common laborers, constant arid profit-
able work at a time usually spent in living upon
the hard earned wages of summer's toil ; there-
Resolved, That it is essential to every class
of our citizens, that the tow boats on the Dela-
ware should be kept in constant activity, and
that it behoves our citizens generally to aid in
devising, arid carrying into effect measures that
will ensure the continuance of this great bene-
fit to our trade, whereby the people of the city
and districts have already derived such impor-
tant advantages, and to which they may con-
fidently look for the uninterrupted commerce
of our noble river during the year, and that
constant employment to the laboring classes
which ensures to them their daily bread, by
their daily toil ; fostering thus a spirit of pure
independence, essential to republicans, with
whom idleness and dependence for support are
deemed a disgrace-while honest industry is
the creation of individual boast, and of public
Resolved, That means of business thus sig-
nally successful for public good, deserve, in an
eminent degree, the fostering care of the com-
munity, to whose fiscal and moral advantages
they promote; and
Whereas, It appears that the revenue of the
Commonwealth has been greatly augmented by
the tolls upon the State railroads arising from t
the transportation ofmerchandize brought unu-
sually early into this port, by means ot the ice
boats and tow boats ; therefore
Resolved, That the generous enterprise of
the Tow Boat Company, and the liberal con-
tribution of the Corporation of the city of Phi- s
ladelphia-to means so productive of good to I
the State at large-give to us, as citizens of E
Philadelphia, city arid districts, an honest claim t
upon the legislation of thle Commonwealth for
pecuniary aid to an object whose benefits are f
as diffusive as those of any institution favored a
by legislative enactment, C
Resolved, 'That this meeting does cordially I
approve of the action of the Board of Trade in n
petitioning the legislature for aid to the Tow a
Boat Company, and earnestly seconds the pro-
ceedings of the meeting of merchants, business
men, and citizens in general, held in the Mer-
chant's Exchange, on the evening of the 16th;
and while they respectfully call upon thlie re- Q
presentatives of the people to aid, by liberal le- t
gislation, t e object of present solicitude, they %
earnestly recommend to the delegates of the
city and county of Philadelphia, the advocacy (
era measure which must be, as it has already c
seen, of immense direct advantage to their im-
mediate constituents, who feel the greater con- d
fidence in this appeal, as they ask for nothing n
that is merely local in its position-nothing fj
which will not tend to increase the revenues of I:
:he State at large, while it promotes and re- t,
wards industry in our own districts.
Resolved, That copies of these proceedings i
be forwarded as early as possible to the Gover- u
nor of the Commonwealth, to the Speakers of i
)oth Houses of tlle Legislature of the Stale,and ^
.o tie Membcrs of tlhe City and County lclega- S
ion. i ,
The fbllow,ing resolution was offered by C. ti
I. Jack, Esq. arid unanimously adopted, g
Resolved, As the sen-e of'this meeting, that q
he direct importation of Merchandize for the ni
ises of trade into the port of Philadelphia, is
indispensable to the success and prosperity of c
ts commerce, as well as every branch of its tl
rade-and that every consideration of patriot- o
sm and duty call upon our merchants to carry |
t into effect, fi

EPISCOPAL CHURCIL-On Tuesday evening, at
o'clock, the Annual Convention of the Pretesta
Episcopal Church. for the Diocese of Pennsylv
nia, assembled in St. Andrew's-Church.
A large number of clerical and lay delegates
tended-the Right Reverend Bishop Onderdon
The Reverend Dr. Ducachet was elected Seer
tary, and after a few minor points of prelimnina
business had been deposed of, the Convention a
journed to 10 o'clock this mnorning.-Inquirer.
1reomn the auburnn Journat.
The special Convention of thle Protestant Epi
copal Church of the Diocese of Western New Yod
was held in ,.t Peter's Church, in this viilag
Wednesday and Thursday, the 8th and 9th ins
The Convention was called chiefly on account
the consecration of the Rev Win A De Lancy,
D, of Philadclphia, to the Episcopal office, who ha
been elevated Bishop of this Diocese.
On Wednesday, the usual services of morning
prayer and a sermon, preceded ihe organization
the Convention. The sermon was preached by th
Rt Rev H U Onderdonk, of Pennsylvania, an
was characterized by his well known logical an
profound reasoning. In the afternoon the convert
lion transacted business, and an excellent sermon
was preached in the evening by the Rt Rev Georg
W Doane, of New Jersey.
Oq Thursday morning at 10 o'clock, the consi
ration service commenced with morning prayer
and a sermon of much force of argument and thrill
ing pathos, from Bishop Onderdonk,of New York
After which the Bishop elect was presented for cor
secration, by Bishop Onderdonk, of New Yorl
and Bishop Doane, of New Jeisey, to the [it Re
Dr Griswold, of Massachusetts, the senior and pre
siding Bishop; who assisted by the three Rt Re
Prelates already named, invested the Bishop elec
vith the Episcopal commission and authority 'ii
the manner prescribed by the church.
The holy communion was then administered to
very large number of christians,by BishopGriswold
assisted by all the Bishops present. In the after
noicon of the same day, Bishop De Lancy was intrc
duccd to the Convention, arnd took the chair as Pre
ident of the same, as Bishop of the Diocese; when
he delivered an address replete with the sounds
exposition of Christian principles and doctrines, a
held arid taught by the church. Of this address w
will only say it delighted all that he.ird it, and re
elected the highest credit on its learned and piou
author, as a polished writer and a man of true an(
enlarged christian charity. In the evening, Bisho|
D)e Lancy preached to a crowded audience, a ser
non of uncommon power and eloquence, and wel
rlapted to make deep and salutary impressions 01
all present.

The interesting anniversary of the American
Sunday School Union,took place on Tuesday af
ernoon in the First Presbyterian Church, or
Vashington square, ALEXANDER HENRity, Esq.
he venerable President of the Society, took the
Chair, having, on his right, our esteemed follow.
itizen, PAUL BECK, Esq., the Treasurer.
Thlie Report was read by the Secretary,and ad
resses were made. Our position was unfortu.
ate, and after attempting to hear a part of the
first address from the Rov. Mr. Ide, of the First
laptist Church of this city, we were cornpellec
o retire.
It appears from the Report of the Board o
managers, that the Society's sales last year were
awards of eighty thousand dollars. This surr
s not to be reckoned among the receipts of the
Society, however. because it is for books which
ost nearly as much, and sometimes more than
s received for them. So low are the publica-
ions of tihe Society sold, that the amount ol
ain realized on the last year's business, was not
uite one thousand dollars. The receipts,in the
orm of donations, were about $10,000, When
we regard the broad principles on which the So-
iety is organized, and its facilities for supplying
lie destitute parts of the country with the means
f moral and religious instruction, we are sur-
rised that the contributions to its funds are so
mited. The report shews an advance, by the
board, of nearly $5,000, over and beyond its re-
eipts for benevolent objects. The number of
religious publications circulated by the Scoiety
*orn its organization, including each distinct
ern of their catalogue, is about EIGHTEEN MiL-
IONS. The number of auxiliary schools and so-
ieties connected with it in the same period, is
bout thirteen hundred. Tho report contained
aluable statistical information representing the
operations of the So'ciety,and presented a strong
ppeal to the friends of religious education in
ieir behalf.- United Slates Gacetle.
Is it not sweet to think, here ifier,
When tha spirit leaves this sphere,
Love, with deathless wings, shall waft her
To h) ose she l'ng hath mourned for here-
Hearts fi'om which 'twas death to sever,
Eyes shis world can ne'er restore,
There as warm, as bright as ever.
Shall meet us, and be lost no more.




Alas alas! doth lhope deceive us,
Shall fripnd-hip, love,-shall all those ties
That bind a moment, and then leave u-
Be found again where nothing dies-
Oh. if no other boon were given,
To keep our hearts from wrong and stain,
Who would not ty to win a heaven,
Where all we love shall live again.

"' U VJ iERIt FEIT." Ur
T fIIE public are respectfully informed that one of
iB- the tasest and most dangerous conunterifoits ever
attempted, has lately been brought to light in the city
of New York: we mean an imitation of that most de-
servedly popular medicine known as Roawand's To-
nic Mixture for "Fever and Ague."
We had but just put down anrt imitation called
Rou.land's Tonic Mixture,"' by L. S. Comstock & Co.,
when another, still more dangerous, makes its apper-
ance from the store of "Seamnan 4 Brothers," druggists,
No. 105 Water st., N. York, in wh'ch the facsimile
of the proprietor has been counterfeited-his copy-
rights infringed upon-his certificates copied-nmd,
in fact, imitated in such a manner, that from its out-
ward appearance it can scarcely he detected We
would also say, that we have commenced a suit, in
the United 'Ltaies Court, for damages for his "piracy"
upon our rights, and request dealers to be very care-
ful of whomr they purchase tue article, unless its
source can be directly traced to the proprietor, or
some one of his general agents, whom he has endea-
vored to select as meii enjoying the utmost respect and
confidence of the communities in which they reside;
and who, we trust, would blush to offer any other
than the true and original Rowand's' Tonic Mix-
ture," f'r the paltry gain ofa few dollars, thereby en-
dangering tha lives ol their fellow citizens.

feiting this valuable medicine, and spuriously putting

Wednesday, May 22, 1839.

The North American of Monday, had the sub-
joined judicious paragraph in reference to the regis-
tration of voters:
"A warm contest is waging between some of our
city papers as to the comparative good or evil pro-
duced by the Registry law. We regard a Registry
law as beneficial, but have no question that in the
heat and excitement of a violent political contest,
acts will be perpetrated on both sides, which it will
be difficult to reconcile to the conscience in cooler
moments. That fiaudscan be committed with a
Registry law as well almost as without one, when
judges of an election are all of one side, and wil-
ling to participate in such acts, we have n5 ques-
tion; but with the fair principle of an equal division
ofjudges between two parties, we have as clear a
conviction that a Registry law will be found to be
a valuable regulation."
While on this subject, we may remark in the
first instance, that "a Registry law" is one thing,
and "the Registry law" is another. It may per-
--. haps be admitted that no reasonable objection to a
proper registration of voters exists; but it must be
one having no other purpose than that of prevent.
ting fraud, not a law that broadly conflicts with the
constitution, and by setting up a legislative enact-
nent' as superior to the fundamental law of the
commonwealth, virtually operates as a disfranchise-
went of the citizen by often depriving him of his
constitutional right to vote. "The Registry law,"
however, has all the evils and none of the advanta-
ges to which we refer. Being on the register is
made the qualification-not the facts of proper age,
residence, and the payment of taxes, as constitu-
tionally provided. Here at the outset a great wrong
is committed, while the door is thrown open and-id
temptation offered to subsequent fraud; for no mat-
ter how undoubted my constitutional qualifications
as a voter, if by accident or design, my name does
not appear on the list, I am turned away from the
polls. The constitution is held up in vain. Its
provisions are laughed at-qualification is nothing
-your name is not down.
The above is the great fundamental objection to
",the Registry Law." It is on this general ground
chiefly that the democrats oppose it. But there
are other vicious features in its operation, and for
these in part, the Northr American suggests the re-
med,; but it is only in part, and though good as
far as it goes, it does not reach deep enough. The
whole matter of election is, by this crude, or pur-
posely defective enactment, called a Registry Law,
placed under the entire control of the local domi-
nant party. The minority are at their mercy in i
many respects, and even under the most perfect re-
gislration, as the North American intimates, fair-
ness is only to be insured by having officers from
both sides. But this arrangement should not begin
on election day. We must travel back further than
that. The Assessors who make up the registry
jists, must fall witi"i the compass of the design t
now spoken of. The whole process ab initio,
must be under antagonizing supervision, by being
conducted by men of opposite politics, or the great
end of honest conduct and public satisfaction and
quiet is not attained. For instance, how is it in
Philadelphia? '! The constitution is first violated. c
Next come the Assessors, flaming partizans, all
alike in sentiment, and deeply interested in the re-
sult. They register the voters, with strong induce- M
ments to do it unfairly, by adding or neglecting ti
names. Then the register is submitted to the In- i
specters, politicians as fiery and as likely to do h
wrong as the Assessors, and both are of the same
political creed, the whole set being fierce for the
success of their friends, and often having a pecunia.
"ry slake, by office or connection, in sustaining the
/ cause to which they,, are attached. Finally comes o
the election day, and we find the officers in the h
house, all of the same political hue. This is a
beautiful arrangement truly, when we know what
men are in the heat of political excitement, and t
what they are likely to do for themselves, when per- '
feet impunity is thus guaranteed f
Au for fairness in making the registry, he must 1
have a large and comfortable faith who expects it
under present circumstances. As for challenges,
why let us remember affairs in the county. In fc
Spring Garden, when over three hundred fictitious ir
anid fraudulent names were found in the registry, n
tie inspectors positively refused to mark the chal- a
lenges until compelled by a mandamus from a court d
- of justice-such are the beauties of the present

-We have said tharthe chief mischief, apart from to
the general principle, is in giving all power to the
local dominant.party, and we make the assertion St
sweepingly, as no particular virtue is claimed in fo
the argument for one party over another. If one h
'set of men having every thing in their hands atc
tihigpoint, believe that they are to be cheated by an- a
otherr set of men similarly circumstanced at another i
point, there is a likelihood, at least, that they may
be temlpted to ", fight the devil with fire," and to
do as they are done by. Thus, roguery here is eo
apt'to create roguery there, and our elections bid be
fair to be a scene of wide spread iniquity ; all ari- it
sirngfrom defective legislation and shortsighted in- a
termeddling with that which was bad enough at w
first, -btu which has been made much worse by an
,quackish expedients, ast

Tari BosToN BAND.-The concert of the Bos-
Ston Brass ban-d on Monday evening at the Musical ti
Fuid Hall, attracted a very large and fashionable co

great brilliancy and effect, fully sustaining the rep- po

No other performer has been listened to in this city

A few severe examples in such cases as that

State of things is a serious hardship to those w

terms by well dressed ruffians. The police shou
see to this-every fellow who is detected
this species of persevering annoyance, should 1
promptly arrested. We have no fondness f

end to thii abominable nuisance, we are not su
that the London practice towards pickpocke
might not be advantageously adopted in such c
ses, the bystanders treating thIe offender to a co

city-particularly in its thronged and well light
streets---a wcman who acts modestly, and pass
quietly on her way, should be as little liable to ii
terruption as she would be in broad daylight-thou
who depend upon their own exertions for suppon
and have neither male relatives at hand nor se

within doors merely because the sun has set, if it

oinnences a short engagement at the Chestnut
Street Theatre this evening. She appears in Tal-
)urd's tragedy of Ion, one of the most perfect of
er performances, anid will be enthusiastically re-
eived. Her engagement is for two nights only,
nd is her last previous to her departure for Eng

HoPE ENGINE Co.-Tho entertainments this
evening at the Walnut Street Theatre, are for the
benefit of this company, which has always proved
self one of the most efficient in time of need. The
appropriation received by it in the district in
whichh it is situated, (Moyamenising,) is very small,
ad the patronage of the public to-night will be be-
to wed where it is much needed.

CoNcxaERT.-It 'Vill be seen by the adver-
sement, that Miss Shireff and Mr. Wilson give a
concert at the Masonic Hall to-morrow evening,
)mprising many of their most popular songs. That
portion of our citizens, particularly, who seldom
,sit theatres, will no doubt gladly embrace this op-
iortunity of hearing these delightful vocalists.

in HousE.-A number of petitions in relation to
'n- former subjects of consideration, werp offered; sev-
be oral of a new character were presented; those only
of import, were for a connection of the public
al- works of this commonwealth with those of the
rid state of Ohio. Mr Spackman presented the memo-
be rial of contractors, on the north and west branches
of the Pennsylvania Canals, complaining against
are the conduct of the present board of Canal Corn-
Itrs, missioners, in reference to re-estimates, &c. &c.,
Ie. which was, after considerable debate, referred to a
rds select committee; Messrs Hegins, Spackman Snow-
em den, J. Cunningham, and Roberts, constitute said
committee. Mr Fisher presented a protest, signed
ry by all the whig members in the House, against the
the proceedings of the House in relation to Mr Stevens,
Ily which was entered upon the journal. The corn-
leas rnittee on the Judiciary System, reported unfavora.

mantown, praying for a divorce. Mr 1'. S. Smith

ho gins made a detailed report upon Mr Stevens' case,
ty with a resolution that Mr Stevens having resigned,
I a is not entitled to a seat in this House, and that the
in Speaker be directed to issue a writ for a new elec-
lion in the county of Adams-Mr T. S. Cunning-
n barn moved that the further consideration of the
matter be postponed until Wednesday next, sug-
iu gesting that he might possibly desire to make a
be report upon the subject, which was agreed to-and
or thus the war has been deterred for forty eight hours
mn at least.

preamble and resolution, in relation to the speech
Sof Gen. Miller, occupied the whole of the morning;

to seven hundr, d men, will arrive in that place next
ry week to encamp for the summer. Other troops to
a. the number of several thousands will speedily fol-

c- health of the troops which have been seriously af-
y fected by the Florida Campaign, and to re-estab-
)e lish habits of discipline which have been much im-
d, paired by the irregular warfare with the Indians.
Tar uuESTION ShTTLED.-The long mooted
and highly interesting question of etiquette, as to
of which side of a lady a gentleman should ride, oK
it horseback, has been settled, finally, conclusively

S Copy of a betterr addressed to one of our comm0is-
sion houses in New Orleans :-
; BRANDON, 1st May, 1838.
Gentlemen-Yours of the 26th ult. is received;
and in reply 1 can say nothing calculated to afford
you arty satisfaction. The whole judiciary of Mis-
sissippi is in the most confused and disorganized
e condition. The collectors of money are put at de-
- fiance and laughed to scorn; Circuit Judges are re-
- fusing to hold courts, and when they do hold them,
they quash the bonds and executions that have been
f.r the last year-or two maturing: Sherifln openly
r refuse to execute the process of the law, and the
3 Brandon Bank has joined the general outrage, by
d procuring the sheriff of this county to receive its
paper on executions, on its promise to redeem it at
e court; but our court is just passed-the sheriff's of
1 rice ij f:,ll of iirindon p p-r-^--aid-tho Batik nowv
has the effrontery to say she has no means to re i
deem a dollar of it. But to the subject. Most of
the forthcoming bonds in this county were by the
' judge quashed; and where they were not quashed,
, lrandon Money was taken by the sheriffwhere any
r collections at all were made. Some of the bonds
g~asEiate'd to you were quashed, and the securities to I
them released,giving to the principal twelve months
longer to pay the debt; this in many cases will
much endanger the collection of the money. Where I
I should have received thousands this court, I have

, riot collected one dollar, nor do I intend to gratify
This corrupt and abandoned bank by taking its foul ,
issue from the sheriff's hands, i
I know that these things are a grievious hardship t
I on creditors, and especially such as have been as
indulgent as you have been with ; but I know
of no remedy until we can obtain officers of suf- ]
ficient firmness and integrity to enforce the laws. I
showed your letter on the subject of corn-
missions, but could get from him no answer. I h
should like to hear from as to these things. |
Very respectfully, yours, &c. s
F t o
Fa mine in Newfoundland.-The extracts below, f,
from Newfoundland papers, exhibit a scarcely d
credible state of distress in that province. The a
Governor has authorized the Commissioners of the d
Poor to expend the sum of 200 from the Treasu-
ry. 240 has been also given for this purpose by
the Irish Society. n
Distress in the Bay.-On Saturday and Mon- t
day last, our streets presented a melancholy ap- g
pearance-about, we suppose, two hundred poor to
females came to the North Shore, to seek relief
from the Benevolent Irish Society of this town,
which Society had given fifty pounds for the poor, 3
and these poor creatures had scarcely a garment a
to cover their nakedness. We have been informed
by several gentlemen from Lower Island Cove, o
that on their wry to this town, they called on u
several poor families, and found them in a sad an
state of starvation. Some families, they stated, had ]
not eaten a morsel from Sunday morning until p
VWednesday evening, and others from Monday until t
Wednesday-and we are convinced, from the re-
ports that are hourly coming in from that quarter,
that this is not the only case in which starvation tc
must put an end to their sufferings, unless relief is ci
shortly given them.-- Carbonear Sentinel.
The reports which continue to reach us relative tc
to the Famine which prevails in the remote settle- D
ments of this Bay, are of the most harrowing des-
cription. We have no hesitation in saying that et
within a circuit of twenty miles of Harbor Grace, H
there-are hundreds of families who have not, with- w
in their respective dwellings, an ounce of the corn-
mon necessaries of life-and who, for weeks past, ex
have been subsisting upon a single meal a day,
and this, too, in many instances, of the most o
wretched and nauseating character.-Harbor Grace

Colblomwveaiti vs. Those. W. Dyott,
CRI-MINAL 'ESSrONs, Monday, May 20.
Court did not 'ot meet until 3 o'clock, owing to
its having been debarred the use, during the morn-
ing, of the room in which its sessions have bnen
held for the past fortnight, by the sitting of the U.
S. Circuit Court.
Peter Y. Calder. whose examination was not
concluded on Saturday, identified a variety of re-
ceipts for salary given by Stephen Simpson to Dr
Dyott, during the years 1836, '37, and '38 which
were read to the jury by Mr Plhillips. The itness
also testified to the identity of a copy of the printed
"Rules and Regulations" for the government of the
hands onmployed in the Dyottville factories, and to
a manifesto of the Manual Labor Bank in manu-
script (the original of an advertisement) as having
been prepared by Mr Simpson, and as being in his
Daniel Scheetz, sworn.-I have known Dr Dy-
ott 13 years; worked at the glass factories 9 years;
there hai been a vast amount of money expended
at Dyottville; I should not like to undertake to
make the improvements Dr Dyott has made
for $200,000. I consider the Doctor a moral man;
hie was generally well spoken of before his failure;
his general character in Kensington is pettyy de-
cen'." I have known Edward Ward 3 years; don't
think him worthy of belief on oath; he said in in-
solvent court that just before the removals in 1838,
there was glassware at the works to the value of
30 or 40,000 dollars; I know there was not more
than $3000 worth; don't think there was ever more
than $10,000 worth on hand at one time. Michael
B. Dyott took charge of the worksin July,1837, and
had the entire management of the business; in Sep-
tember and October Michael was selling off, he sold
everything except what wkh afterwards sold by
the Sheriff: theo Dr, had nothing to do with it; goods
were disposed of at the Sheriff's sale at a sacrifice.
Michael was an extravagant and wasteful man; saw
him when ho was ,ick and after he was dead; was
at his funeral.
Cross-examined by Mr Hirst. -Towards the lat-
ter end of Novemler, 1838, Michael got so ill he
was unable to attend to business. The whole of
the ware taken -tvay in the two scows I should
think was worth e-,m 1800 to 2000 dollars.
Hugh Duffee wva.s called. His testimony was
essentially the same as that of the preceding wit-
George W. Carpenter, sworn. Before his fail-
ure, the character of Dr Dyott, as an honest man,
stood fair.
[Mr Phillips h: e read the "rules aid regula-
tions" of the Dyottville factories alluded to above,
prohibiting swearing, fighting, quarrelling, drink-
ing, &c. &c., and offered in evidence an "Exposi-
tion of the Manual labor System" of l) r Dyott, be-
in g composed of a series of articles which originally
appeared in the American Sentinel.]
Charles W. D)yott was called, when Mr. ilirst
objected to his te: timony being received, on the
ground of his being named in the indictment as a
party with Dr Dyot, in his scheme to defraud his
creditors, and the consequent temptation on his
part to testi y falsely for his own safety. Mr J. R.
Ingersoll replied, atid the objection was overruled.
Witness was sworn.-I am one of the firm of J.
B. & C. W. Dyort; went into business July 1st,
1837; we were engaged in the drug business,and
as agents for the g!ass business of Michael B. Dy-
ott; bought Dr D; Ll's stock of -goods for $150,-
000 ; gave ou:- not ;s in payment for $2000 paya-
ble every 60 days. When the Manual Labor Bank
stopped redeeming its notes, we advertised to re-
ceive them in payment for goods; never made any
difference in selling our goods for Manual Labor or
other money. Our firm does not o ve a dollar that
we ever received value for; we joined'in large re-
sponsibilities for Dr Dyott. I never saw or heard
of Mr Simpson examining the stock in our ware-
houses, and do not Lhink he could have known its
value. We never ;nade any clandestine sales; in
August and Noveo.ber, 1838, we had goods sold
at auction, by Richards & Bispham, to a large
amount; Dr Dyott got nearly all the money pro-
cured by those sales. In October and November
the large sales we'- made to which Mr Simpson
has referred ; the Doctor had nothing to do with
them ; a little previous to the sales we had received
orders from New York for 1700 packages of glass-
ware, at a discount of 50 per cent. and expenses
of freight paid to New York; the goods were
shipped in haste for fear of navigation closing; all
that the 1700 packages netted was $8,500; all our
operations at this time in drugs and glass-ware,
amounted to about $13,000.
Court adjourned to Tuesday morning, at 10

Tuesday, May 21.
Examination of Charles W. Dyott continued.-
Of the money procured by the sales in October and
November, 1838, $4000 were paid to Samuei Fa,-
ker for a debt due by Dr Dyott. All the debts
owing by our firm were settled before we assigned
our goods. I saw ., persons armed with bludgeons

Dyott get large sums almost daily from the Doctor
during 1837 and '38; the first I ever heard of the
clandestine removals of goods from the factories
was at ihe insolvent court; Michael and the Doctor
htad not been on good terms for 3 or 4 months be- l
fore the death of the former. I bought a house in
Poplar Lane of Joseph B. Stratford, for which I
paid in drugs; paid $770; sold it afterwards to my
sister, s

Cross-examined by Mr tHirst.-There is an ac-
count on our books with M. B. Dyott; I think he
s in our debt. We purchased goods of Dr Dyott I
o the amount of 40 or 50 thousand dollars in 1838;
paid in Manual Labor notes. I do not think there
vas ever at one time $5000 worth of glassware at e
Dyoltville. i
Charles Keen, sworn.-I am Cashier of the Ken-
;ington Bank; have known Dr Dyott several years; c
te was indebted to our bank in 1835 for money
oane i; we had an execution against him, but con-
ented not to push it- in consequence of the Doe. c
or's giving us, as security, a note of Capt Mann
sr $16,000 at 60 days; at the expiration of the 60 c
lays, the interest and $1000 of the debt were paid,
and a new note of $15,000 given; the debt was re-s
auced in the same way $1000 every sixty days to
$3000, when all that remained due was paid. t
Joseph Dows, sworn.-I assigned a number of 1
mortgages, given by Mr Morris and Mr Hindman,
0 fi
o Dr Dyott; I wanted a loan, and left the mort-
ages as collateral security; they were not satisfac- v
sry to the Doctor, and a few months after they v
were re-assigned to me. k
John Wilbank, sworn.-Have known Dr Dyott "
Sor 4 years; his general character has been that of
n upright man. f
John II. Medlam, sworn.-Have known Dr Dy- t
tt since October, 1830; from that time to his fail- 1
re his general character for honesty, temperance
nd morality, was good; don't think the wharves at V
tyottville alone could have cost less'than $ 100,000; t
people in Kensington have spoken a great deal bet- i

ant report. It elicited much discussion, arid gai
rise to various amendment's, and was still undi
discussion at a late hour in the afternoon:
Report of the Committed' on the Slate of the
Church-(in part )
Whereas, the churches connected with thi.
Assembly previous to the year 1837, have bee
divided, arid now exist in two distinct organize,
tions; and whereas, a committee of tlheassemnbl
previous to any action on thle questions of sue
division, did settle tlhe terms then deemed to b
fair and equitable; and whereas, this assembly
notwithstanding the issue of thle legal proceed
ings already had, are sincerely desirous, not onl
of preventing all further litigation, especially E
moving the members of individual churches, bu
of doing ample justice to the churches once i.
connexion with them, but now in connexion witi
another body; therefore,
Resolved, That this Assembly hereby assent t,
the terms, substantially, then proposed, viz: Tha
the corporate funds and property of the church
so far as they appertain to the Theological Sem
inaries at Princeton and Allegheny Town, or t,
the support of Professors, or the education
of beneficiaries, shall remain the property of thi
Assembly; and that its faiith be pledged for rais
ing a sum, equal in amount to a imoiety of a!
the remaining permanent funds, which may bi
divided without a manifest violation of the wil
of the respective donors thereof, or of the trus
upon which the same are h-olden; to be paid ove
by the trustees to the person or persons appoint
ed by the other assembly to receive thie same.
And if any legislative action shall be deemnei
by the other assembly necessary for securing ti
it all the property or funds of congregations, o
theological seminaries that may belong in equit
to the portion of the church within its ju;isdic
Resolved, That this assembly will acquiesce ii
the procuring of such legislative action so far a
this can, in time judgment of their legal counsel
be done, consistently with the preservation o
their own rights and privileges.
And that the Trustees of thle General Assem
bly be authorized to negotiate,o thie part of thii
Assembly, on the principles herein set forth, at
amicable and jinal settlement of all matters it
controversy, so far as church property is con.
corned, to take effect as soon as the same shal
have been nmutually agreed to between the par
ties concerned-and not otherwise to be horeaf
ter considered binding upon this Assembly; anr
if the parties shall not agree as to the equities
concerned, that one referee shall be appointee
by each, and a third by the two, and the decis.
ion of the whole, or a majority of such referees
shall be final in the premises.
Where congregations have divided or shall di-
vide in consequence of the division inm the Gene-
ral Assembly, and attach thenisclves to the one
body or the other.
SResolved, That in all cases, where equity re-
quires a division of the church property,that thie
same ought, in the judgment of this assemnbly,tc
be equitably divided.
And when the parties cannot agiee as to the
equities in question, that each one select one re.
free, and the two a third, and that the three, om
a majority therof, have full power to settle the
whole terms of such division.
,,nd that where majorities refuse to make such
division% that minorities ought not, i'n ordinary
cases, to resort to legal process, fbr establishing
what may be deemed to be their equitable rights
until every effort for obtaining an amicable ar-
rangement shall have failed,and riot (when prac-
ticable without great inconvenience) until the
Presbytery or Synod to which they belong shall
have been consulted.

At an adjourned meeting of the Butchers of the

night, the 17th inst., Lewis Lowry, Esq., w is called
o the Chair, and Messrs. Warner and Tull were
chosen Secretaries.
After the reports of the various committees, the
following preamble and resolutions were adopted :
Whereas, the admissions of some of the foreslal-
era and monopolizers are startling to the sense of
nstice-and cause man to blush, with shame, for the
cupidity an" venalityof his fellow man. Thedisco-

tires now made by a portion of these individuals, as
Well as facts Inhat have como immediately under the
not ce of the Butchers, are at once sufficient to cotn-
mince the most incredulous, of the high-ihauded, into-
erable and comparatively! filching traffic that has
Wen practised by such meu upon the Butchers and
citizens of Philadelphia. It is only necessary for the
itizenis to be apprise:l of the gross aid outrageou.i
positions that have been vi-ited upon thein, to call
bforih. their indignation, and constrain, this combined
company. (whoare warring against the best interests
fthie members of this community) to resign, and
abandon this unholy and illegal pursuit.
R;usolved, Thiat the following disclosures, which
our fellow citizens may reiy upon as sacred truths,
vill exhibit in its true light, the sole anid true cause
of the enormous price of aniital provision; that one
of these forestallers has acknowledged that not long
since he purchased, in the country, two catile, for
5t', arid sold them for $105-another, that hlie pur-
chased two cattle of the farmer for $100, and sold
them for $175-his price was $180, and after some
little delay, he reluctantly yie ded to the amniount of
$175, which he observed afforded him o;sly $75 pro-
it. Anollher, that took place a few weeks since,where
tie huckster had sold the butcher anr oxfori $162, on
vihich hlie realized $52 profit-another instance, is
vhcre sheep had been bought, and the trafickor ac-
knowledged that he made THREE DOLt.Alts per head
po.l them.
Resolved, That the foiegoing facts, that can be sub-
tantiatedat once prove to us the high price of animal
.od, and show, lhat the Butcher is obliged thereby
o advance the price of his meat provision from 75 to
00 per cent.
