restored Jto complete health, that he, on

desire of his nearest and dearest friends,

Fpr some time past, rumors of a
duel between two Congressmen, rGtrow, of
Penna., and Branch, ;of Carolina,
have been afloat, and gained some cre
dence, but a letter from Grow to Branch,
dated Dec. 30th) entirely settles the mat
ter. Grow announces His determination
not to fight a duel, but to defend himself
in dcbatcj whenever assailed.
8@» Gdvernor Black, of Nebraska, in
his'message to the Territorial Legislature,
dated Dec. 6, warmly jirgcs the admission
of that territory into the Union. He con
fesses that she does not possess, at the
present time, a sufficient population to en
title her tb a representative under the ex
isting ratlp of 93,428, but he .enters into
an elaborate argument to prove that this is
no legal barrier to her .admission, and cites
the example of Florida and Arkansas.
Bennett’s Dollar Monthly.— We
have .received the first number of this new
candidate jfor public favor, and find it all
we had Anticipated. The story entitled
* The Mountain Lilly ” promises to be one
of deep interest. The .poetical contribu
tions are' of the best, and the humorous
department is side-splitting. We are of
the opinion that the Monthly wil 1 be a
deeded sqccess, if the publishers can af
ford to get up as good a copy each month
as the one'before us, for the small sum of
$1 per year. Bennett & IJameliu, Phila

would be recognized and rewarded, will be ut
terly blasted, and he wQI go from henee mut
tering ‘curses deep, but not loud.’ This thj„ g
of getting a petty office at jHarrisburg Is, after
all, nothing but a lottery, since I have noticed
the,Yery wheel-horses of a party shored aside
to make ;room for a mercenary drone, a rant
ing, brazen-faced demagogue without a redeem
ing trait in his character. The army of office
hunters here has: been four-fold larger than on
any former occasion. • /All were sanguine of suc
cess, and some of them' Would scarcely realize
the faet of a decided and most unequivocal de
feat. ; \ ' •"
The Republican caucus of the House last
evening nominated W. C. A. Lawrence for
Speaker, E. H. Bauch for Clerk, and John Hall
for Assistant Clerk. Capt. Bell was an appli
cant for the latter office,/and at one time I
thought his success was certain, but by some
bargaining h® ; got but ten votes. lam sorry
for the Captain, hut “sick is life.”
The Senate caucus ' allso met last night, and
nominated Wm. M. Francis, of Lawrence coun
ty, for Speaker, and Russel Erret, one of the
editors of the Pittsburg Gazette, for Clerk.
The Democrats of the. House last night nomi-.
n(tt«d Mr. Dunlap, M Philadelphia, for Speaker,
and Capt. Jacob Zeigler far Clerk. The Senators
this morning re-nominated the old officers with
the exception -of Messrs. Ycrkes and Africa—
the former haring gone over to the Republicans
and the latter having been elected a member of
the House. Of coarse the Democrats go through
the motions merely for form sake, being, as your
readers know,' wofuliy in the minority!
Your Senator is on’hand, prepared to dis
charge bis duties. It is not improbable that he
will make his mark before the end of the session.
Yoar Member, Mr. Burley, I notice, is also

members were sworn in, after which they ad

the manly art and admirers of muscle in our
neighborhood, will doubtless feel interested to
learn that the great contest for the champion
ship between Heenan and Sayers has been at
length dccided upon, and the month of March
fixed] fori its settlement. Heenan leaves onWed
nesday next for England. He is now in Balti boxing' exhibitions at the Circus,
and-is tp; popular with the pugs of that city that
he draws crowded Louses every night. His
friends are very confident that the veteran Sny
ers will have to succumb tohis greater strength,
i j amount of money has been
ataked on,his success. In England, where Tom
Sayers is .considered invincible, the feeling is all
m his fat6r, and the defeat of the American is
therefore considered as much of a certainty as
if it had.been already accomplished.

■ ’ * young mAh who bad been seett from St.
■ Clair, to Hazleton-with a team, for thai purpose
of removing the family of Mr. Valentine Frantz,
to the former place, - found it necessary to un
niteh Jus" horses, and leave the Wagon* which
contained the* family, on the mountain, to go
home and have his horses’ shoes sharpened.—
The persons composing the family,'left in that
dangerous position, were Mrs, Frantz, fivesmall
children, ~ And an elder daughter and her hus
band. After the'driver had'been absent some
time, the family left the wagon) for the purpose,
if possible, of reaching home; but the rain fall
ing fast, and freezing as rapidly as it fell, impe
ded their progress. Mrs. Frantz sank to the
ground a dozen times in a distance of between
one and two miles, yet she clung to and protec
ted her babe with the fervor which characterizes
a mother’s love. At last, Mrs. Frantz, overcome
by cold and fatigue, could proceed no further.
The young man placed her and four of the chil
dren on the ground, in as sheltered a position
as he could find, picked up the remaining child,
a boy, in his arms, and with his tyife proceeded
home as rapidly as possible.
On reaching bomb he informed his friends of i
♦he occurrence, and they strrted in search of!
tho unfortunate sufferers. When discovered, !
Mrs. Frantz and the children were insensible.— !
The mother was lying on her back, with the .
babe pressed tightly to her bosom, while her !
clothing was frozen to the ground. One of the !
children, a little girl, while attempting evident- |
ly to crawl up the hill, had slipped ; her clothing i
was stripped’ from her person, and she was i
found and frozen to the ground. The !
The children were taken to a place of shelter; i
but Mrs. Frantz was hot removed until a wagon 1
had been procured. The first inquiry from her |
lips, when restored to consciousness, was for i
her children. The boy first taken home, has ;
died. It is thought (hat Mrs. Frantz will reco- ,
ver. The babe is well. There is, however, i
some doubt of the recovery of the other chil- 1
dren. - ;

Wo do not think a person can evince a more benevolent
trait 6f character than being moved at the distress and suf.
forings of others, and furthermore, anxious todoallin their
power to alleviate by every possible means human Buffer
ing. In this view of tho case, wo. do not know how the
humane and benevolent can do an action more in accor
dance with pliilanthrophic views, than by calling the
attention of their afflicted friends and acquaintances to the
fact, that Dr. Seth S. Hasoh, of 10S Baltimore street, Bal
timore, M. D. has discovered a preparation, which is put up
in the form of a pill, that has a specific action for curing
Rpilepgy, or falling fits, spasms, cramps, and all forms of
nervous diseases. Among those who have been perriia
nently cured, wo might mention a member of tho family of
James U. Beadle, Huntsville, Alabama; Mr. M. 1». Sledge,

■ftß-Itisa common observation that there are more
sufferers from debility, among Americans, than can 6o
found among any other civilized; nation. The reason Is
obvious. We take too little exercise, and forget the wants
of the body in the absorbing pursuits of business. In all

Hostetler has given to the world, in his CELEBRATED

magical in its influence upon a frame which is merely de
bilitated, is equally powerful in assisting nature to expel
