Tbe Bight or Search.
' This subject has excited a deal of con
troversy, through the press, within the
past few weeks. The “ British Outrages,”
Of tbe “ insults ” recently offered, by Brit
ish cruisers, to American Merchant vessels
ip the Golf of Mexico and the Atlantic,
»pme would have us believe, have laid the'
foundation for a rcal.war in earnest with
England, although we are inclined tore
gard it in a different light. The readers
of history will remember that similar
committed half a century ago, tended jn p
groat measure to produce the war of 1812,
but wo think there is a different spirit ac
fnating.the British government now to
wbftt there was at the time referred to.—r.
The British goverment presumes that a
number of ihe ships of that county are
engaged in the inhuman traffic of slaves
and has accordingly sent out cruisers to"
anoat them. How are. the cruisers to.per
forpa.thpir. duty .if every vessel that runs
up;theA* ncr * x3an flag is to beexempifrom
Boairch t Could not every slaver and pri
vate run up the Americaivflag, and there
by .escape detection ? Certainly. But jit
is folly for American journalists to attempt
to deny toEngland u TheKight of Search:”
The denial of this right would 'prove as
disastrous to the interests of this country
as to those of England, and so long as the
English cruisers do not wpntonly .trespass
uppn the rights of American vessels, we
should rather lend them onrsdd than en
deavor to oonstaroe it into an insult which
rails for resentment.
*To examine a vessel suffriently to de
toot whether or not she is engaged in the
slavetrade, will take bnt a very short tune
and.does not cause,.the least hindrance,or
delay. All vessels -honestly engaged in
trade are alike interested in suppressing
piracy and unlawful enterprises on the;
seas, and such vessels should .not refuse to
he examined, hut should rather court in
spection, and thus lend,their aid in detec
ting the unlawful or ; outUwed Vessels,
On the contrary, -if -American vessels
have been boarded and searched, and the
gross insults reported have been offered to
the American flag, we feel sure that we
have a Resident and Secretary of State
who will not allow them to pass without
notice, and who will soon give the British
government to understood that outrages
on our commercial marine and insults to
our flag will not be tolerated. We wait
patiently .to see what action will be taken.
A Prize Fight.
On Sunday morning a week, a collision,
according to the rules of occurred
on Long Island, in the vicinity of Red
Hook, between John Casey of Troy, and
Charley Boss of New York City; The
combatants were well matched in height,
heft and age, each being about 24 years
old and weighing 140 pounds. Neither
of the combatants had ever been in the
ring before, although they had had con
siderable experience in rough-and-tumble
and bar-room fights. Casey was supposed
to have the advantage in science, as he
had been a professor in the manly art of
•alf-defence, hut Ross was relied on for
his pluck, which he had displayed on
snore than one occasion. Equal bets were
offered and freely taken, and both factions
appeared sanguine of their favorite’s suc
The first round was fought “shy,” both
combatants acting on the defensive'; but
yd; length Casey rushed in and threw his
man heavily, which called forth the plan*
<Bto of his hackers. On the second round
Boss attempted to rush in, but was stop
ped by a blow in the face which sent him
reeling, when he was again pounced on
by Casey and thrown head foremost to
the earth, his opponent falling on top.—
this it was apparent that Boss stood
bat a poor chance of success, his pluck
and perseverance being of little avail
' against the better training and greater
strength of his adversary. Ffly-five rounds
were fought, at the end of which time
Boss was helpless, both his eyes being
closed and he Was covered with blood.—
Casey was declared the victor, amid the
cheers of his .fciends, and money paid
over to him
Bepeal of tbe Usury Laws.
/The following bill, repealing the penab
ties on usury, passed on the 21st of April
last, has received the signature of the Gov
ernor and is now the law:—-
Sac. 1. Be it enacted, &c., That the lawful
rate of interest for the loan or usexf money in
all cases where no express contract shall have
been made for a less rate, shall be six per cent,
perannnm, as heretofore, and the first and sec
ond sections of tho act passed 2d March,
entitled “an act to reduce the interest of money
from eight to six per cent, per annum,” (Pur
don, 451, sec. 1 and 2,) be and the same is here
by repealed.
Bxc. 2. That when a rate of interest for the
loan or use of money, exceeding that establish
ed by law, shall have been reserved or contrac
ted for, the borrower or debtor shall not be re
quired to pay to the creditor the excess over the
legal fate, and it shall bo lawful for such bor
rower or debtor at his option to retain and dc*.
duct such excess from tho amount of any such
debt, and in all cases where any borrower or
debtor shall heretofore or hereafter have volun
tarily paid the whole debt or sum loaned, to
gether with interest exceeding tbe lawful rate,
no action to recover back any such excess shall
be sustained in any court of this Commonwealth,
unless the same shall have been commenced
within six months from and alter the time of
such payment Vrovided, always. That nothing
in this act shall affect the holders of negotiable
paper taken bona fide in the usual course of bu
We can not imagine why the Governor
should so long withhold his signature from
such a law, but we are glad to announce
that it has at last been granted. The old
law was almost daily violated or evaded,
by the practice of giving bonuses, .and in
feet tended to increase rather than dimm
ish the price of money, by tempting some
to evade it, (and others to hoard it up, rath
er than violate the law or place themselves
at the mercy of knaves, who might pocket
the principal and interest by a .suit for
usury. The supply and demand, we think.

So frequently, of late, has this head ap
peared over paragraphs detailing outrages
committed pi this Territory', that they al
most fail .to attract the attention of the

grievous in the extreme, and exhibit a
state of a&its disgraceful to the country.
The Lawrence Republican, extra, con
tains a letter dated Moneka, linn county,
20th ult., stating that on the 19th a party
of pro-slavery men from Missouri, came
into the trading post, situated on the
road: from Port Scott to Leavenworth,
where it crosses the Osage, taking two
men named Andrews and Campbell, pris
Further,on they captured Mr. Stilwell,
recently from lowa, and a man named
Reed. Continuing on the road toward
Kansas City, till they had taken twelve
men, the party halted in> a deep ravine,
when the prisoners, with the exception of
Andrews, who had been dismissed from

d five of them lulled, viz: Stilwell, Ross,
Colchester, ftobison and Campbell. The
remaining six were wounded.
Aftertheacoompliahmentof their bloody
work, the ruffians rode off. The affair
created intense excitement in Lawrence

bring organized to pursue the perpetra*

of his children. Near the close of the
winter, some returned Californians chanced
to stop at the .house, and seeing the lumps,
pronounced them to be gold. One of the

TM Jone Widow’s Story.
“Wp untohlm that fWoth hi* neighbor drink, that pnt
tMt toy bottlato him, and ptakurt him drunken alao.”
In my walks through the country, observing
men and tilings, I btopped one evening at a neat
little dwelling by the wayside to inquire of its
inmates how far it was to a house of entertain
ment. The of the house was a
female apparently in the wane of life, of pleas
ing address and tidy in appearance. She told
mo that there was a tavern about one mile dis
tant on the road-side; “ but,” she said, as tears
went trickling down her cheeks, “ don’t stop
there, it is the gate of death.” Being interested
in the woman’s manner and desiring to know
something of her life, I asked her if I could re
main under her roof for the night, at the same
time telling her who I was and something of
my business, besides promising to remunerate
her liberally in the morning. She cheerfully
consented, and I was ushered into a room, the
furniture of which was neatly arranged, yet of
an ordinary kind. After I bad partaken of a
simple repost, I inquired of her what were the
touching associations connected with that tay
cm along the way that caused tears .to flow and
Words of such fearful moment to pas#' her lips.
Trying to repress the emotions .of grief that
swelled her bosom, she proceeded to narrate
the following story. It contains volumes against
the. sale jof that beverage which has brought
hundreds to the same oqb»ppy end. The lady
began; f 4 When I was a girl of eighteen, I be
came acquainted with « young Utah who after
wards became my husband. He loved me with
a devotedness almost unparalleled, and indeed
that love was ardently reciprocated; bat one
great objection I had to becoming his wife was,
tint 1 feared he was tampering with liquor. He
frankly said’he had beoh[imbibing occasionally,
but vowed if I would become his wife he would
never touch it again. ;11 have believed he was
in earnest, for nobly did the keep that promise
for ten years of onryredded life, when I thought
it bad been sealed by my faithfulness and
prayers. 1 thqngbt we dhdold both die happy
in the blessed consciousness of haying performed
onr vows to God and ourselves. Bat alas ! that
pleasing spell was broken! —We lived during
the space of ten years in a neat and pleasant
villa away from the faaoptp of wicked men and
from places of idle amusement. At lost he sold
that property and puzch|UMd the form near the
tavern. He prospered well in his new situation
nptil be listened to the .siren voice of present
pleasure and overcome! by the persuasions of
the bar-room loungers to join their nomber,
then he was stealthily lured from the path of
duty and urged on to ruin. Then he forgot the
promise be had made to {the wife of his bosom
long years before. I was ignorant of the course
he was pursuing yuatil ho had proceeded so far
in his downward road os to baffle all my entrea
ties, tears andprayers.
“few were which he now spent at
hope in the midst of his family. His business
was gradually neglected, ; Ms substance was
squandered at the bar. V I
« One day he staggered into the house utter
ing curses that appalled tap, and while still in
ths fit of intoxication he Commenced maltreating
the children and drove me from the house. Af
ter I bad arrived at the house of a friend, about
a mile distant, and was lamenting over my un
happy condition, I happened to' turn my'eyes
'toward the house from whieb I had just been
banished, when oh dreadful! the dwelling was
enveloped in a sheet of fliune! I, in company
with my hospitable friends, hastened to the dis
tressing scene, but arrived just in time to wit
ness the .falling in of the reof and hear the cribs
of anguish of my two only children and misera
ble husband! The feelings I then and there
experienced cannot be described. Would to God
I could remove from nty memory the impres
sions of < that hour!; In jus frenzy he had set
the house oh fire—the climax of his madness
which sealed ' onr destiny. The two children
tbat peiisheQ with theii? fathffr were the only
ones that lived to that fatjd clay— three having
died in the days of' our prosperity. The land
lord who whs the destroyer of' my husband and
my happiness, got onr farm in payment of the
debts which |my husband had contracted afbis
bar and plseijrliwe, while under the influence of
the spirits he retailed. • The house in which 1
now reside was given to time by a kind friend
who knewmy calamity—all my relatives have
long rimje ‘gone-before.* ! I now live comforta
bly upon the diarity of my dear neighbors, who.
are to me as affectionate parents. :; ;
“ I hope to meet ail my ohtldren in a better
world, where there are no rumsellers or drink
ers who jkill and destroy.”; As the poor woman
ceased, she gave vent to s burst of grief which
affected me much.
In J.he morning as I was about taking my
leave of her, she asked me if I had any unmar
ried sisters. 1 told her that I had hut one. - She
replied with much emotion, “ Oh, then teU that
unmarried sister and all with whom you have
any influence to avoid the rock upon which I
split—to have nothing to do with young men
who have formed an appeiite for ardent spirits,
or who associate with the wicked.”
Each was the widow’s story, and similar is
the experience of thousands. Truly,
“ Man’s Inhumanity to man
Has mado countless thousands mourn.”

Musas. Editors presume you will ex
pect me to furnish you with a report of the
Military Encampment at this place, of which I
have spoken in my foriner letters. , Well, it
has gone through all the various stages of be
ginning and endings The only draw-back upon
the whole affair was the rainy weather. Hod
it not been for the rain, however, it is likely
that I should have been deprived the pleasure
of witnessing the display, nevertheless I feel
sorry because it depriyeli the soldiers of their
pleasure. Through all the rain and ipud of

Packet Boat coming up from Pittsburg, met
with so much water that, it is said, the horse*
sometimes swam along on. the toe-path. Ido
wot giro this for . a fact. Another bout coming
np would not risk their horses, and a company
of volunteers who were aboard jumped out,
took the toe-line and pulled the boat through.
All the rain, however, could not deter the com-,
panics of this place from taming out in uni
form. N Daring the day a number of .companies
arrived and Blairaville assumed the appearance
of garrison life. A beautiful exhibition of
“ The pomp and drenmstaace of glorious war,” ,/
was there presented. The shrill notes of -the
ear-piercing fife, the noisy rattle of the kettle
drams, and the deep thunder of the boss drums,
combined with tho innumerable banners float
ing to every breexe, aroused the martial spirit
and excited in the minds of-the people a love
and admiration for those who bold themselves
rfeady to defend their country from wrong and
Twelve companies composed the parade, vis:
Washington Artillery, Salem Artillery, Bough
and Beady Bines, Blue Hovers, New Alexandria
Bines, Washington Cavalry, Citizens’ Guard,
Pennsylvania Infantry, Washington Blues,
Mecfaling Blues, Bigler Blues, and one com
pany of which 1 could notleam the name. The
two companies of this place had- got up a beau
tiful, bahnerto be presented to the - best drilled
company, which was awarded do the Pennsylva
nia Infantry, of Bast Liberty. Several com
panies were presented irith faandaome wreaths,
by the ladies.
As near as I can learn, there were about 467
rank and file and musicians. Generally speak
ing, they were all fine looking men and-well
drilled.. The. good conduct and order was re
markable. No drunkenness or fighting was to
be seen. ' '
The most amusing part of the whole perform
ance was the “ran off” of an; ox team. It
took fright at the martial display and “ cut
stick” for the outskirts of the town as fast as it
could travel. No damage was done we presume,
or it would have been reported.

Mkssks. Editoes: —Almost two months have
elapsed since I lost wrote yon. It was all owing
to the fact, however, that I had nothing worth
communicating, or at least nothing that would
have been facetious to your numerous readers.
Since my arrival in this place, lhaye been mak
ing a few observations which I shall note,
hoping they may add interest to yonr columns.
Tins village is small, bat it is beautifully lo
cated in one of the finest valleys in the State,
and isrvsorf banded by elegant forms. No more
suitable place could have been selected for the
location of the Blair County Normal School,
which is now in session, and of which I shall
give yon as correct a report as I possibly can.
The school was organized oil the morning of
the 26th inst. It was opened with reading a
portion of Scripture, and prayer, after which
Mr. Dean, Our worthy Superintendent, deliver
ed a brief, but able and instructive address to
the audience, stating the object of the School.—
He was followed by Prof. Calkins, the teacher,
in a neat address on the subject of education
and the manner of conducting Normal Schools.
Mr. C. hails from' the Empire State and is
undoubtedly an efficacious instructor and high
ly educated gentleman. Ho is assisted by Miss
SalUo A. Wxrdell, of Peekskills, New York,
who is a lady qf high accomplishments, and
her versatility in the art of imparting instruc
tion and suavity of manners wQI crown her
future days with success and happiness.
There ore between forty and fifty pupils in
attendance, bat more are expected soon. :
would suggest'to those who have made calcula
tions to attend the school to'be up and doing,
for delays in such cases are dangerous. I hope
the delegation from Antes, will immediately
take np their line of march for this region.
On Wednesday , evening last the pupils collet
a meeting, and quite a number formed them
selves into a society to be termed the “Em
bryo Club.” The object of this association is
to form the nucleus of a future one to be estab
lished in On Friday evening ano
ther meeting was Feld, which was addressed by
Messrs. Dead and Calkins in an able and in
stinctive manner., Their lectures are to be
Continued daring the session.

now boarding with him. May his generous
hospitality be rewarded by abundant prosperity.
