of Brooklyn, Before the election they hired a room in the

refuses to release them, and intends to make them suffer
for their folly.
Wz ACCEPT THE OFFEE.—The editors of the Ifuntingdou
Journal offer to Wager $5OO against $2OO that neither of
them ever voted illegally—and $5OO against $2OO that all
they have said relative to the "mail" business is the solid
truth. We accept both offers, with the understanding that
the "Family Record" published in the Huntingdon Jour
nal in Juno 1855 was'•correct so far as it gave the date when
Samuel G. Whittakertame into the world. We make this
provision in accepting the first offer, because it may be
possible that the " Record" has since been slightly altered,
or that the "Record" as published was false. Samuel
could do either 'without disturbing his conscience in the
least. Name your jury—but remember they are to be of
better character than either of you—and we will place
$4OO in their hands. "Now, too the mark, or take the wa

irar-The article in the last Huntingdon Journal relative
to the recent action of the Presbyterian congregation, is
replete with misrepresentation, falsehood, and injustice.—
The'editors stigmatize as a "bold and malignant misrepre
sentation" the statement of the Trustees of the Church,
and say that they wore requested to do so!!
The item which appeared in our paper a few weeks tiuce
relative to the matter was given us an item of news, and
not as they insinuate, intended to east reflections, &c. It
was written by ourself, but the malignancy of the drivel
ling wretch who wrote the article in the Journal led hitil
to ascribe its authorship to a person Who had nothing
whatever to do with it. Consequently their contemptible
abuse ,will recoil upon their own heads.
The article in - the Journal is condemned by the Trustees
and.every high-minded honorable man in the congregation
who isamtainted with the facts.

All those indebted for the Globe, adver
tising and job work, are requested tolottle
their accounts at the earliest moment cone
nient—at least between this time and the first
day of April, 1857. This notice is particu
larly intended for those whose accounts have
been standing for two years and upwards.—
There are few, if any of these, who could not
pay their accounts at a moment's notice, with
out any difficulty; and we hope they will not
wait for another asking. We, as a general
thing, are not in the habit of dunning, but
justice to others requires this to be done.—
We pay cash regularly to our operators, as
well as for type, paper, ink, and so on, and
cannot recognize as friends, those persons
who are so negligent as to leave their accounts
run for several years, when they are abun
dantly able to pay. We like to do business
in a business way, and hope to be seconded
by our friends.
Affairs at Washington
WASITINGTON, Jan. 20th.—Mr. Simonton,
the correspondent of the New York Times,
was re-called to-day before the corruption in
vestigating committee, and was informed that
the Committee had come to the unanimous
determination to insist on his answering the
question, in substance: "You have admitted
that members of Congress have approached
you confidentially with the request that you
procure them pecuniary interests in measures
pending before the House. We ask you to
give the names of such members." After
some suggestions by the Committee to the
witness, as to the extent of its duties and
powers in such cases, Mr. Simonton answer
ed substantially, "I do nokhere dispute the
powers of the Committee. I have not de
clined to answer the question on that ground.
I have all due respect for the House and the
My refusal is not based upon a; desire to
screen individual members, nor can it be sup
posed that an answer to the question would
reflect discredit upon me. I have declined
on a principle. I have read, in deference to
the wishes of the Committee, the case of An
derson against Dann, and after full delibera
tion as to what I ought to do, in view of that
case, and from other considerations, have
come to the determination that I must persist
in declining to answer, no matter what the
penalty I may incur, because to do so, would
involve dishonorable breach of confidence."
The President, in response to a resolution
of the Senate, to-day transmitted a volumni
ous correspondence relative to the Venezueli
an Government drivinw 'D certain American cit
izens from the Ayes Guano Islands. Mr.
Marcy, in a letter to the American resident
minister at Caraccas, dated present month,
urges him to

on the Government of Venezuela, saying it is
no defence fur the spoliation of our citizens
of their property, their forcible expulsion,
mid their heavy losses, to say that the island
belongs to some other nation than Venezue
la, and that there are facts abundantly sus
tained by evidence, of the gross outrage upon
the persons and property of our citizens, and
of the heavy losses thereupon consequent.
The President sent to both Houses a mes
sage, enclosing the correspondence relative
to the restoration of the bark Resolution to
the British Government, and showing that
the joint resolution of Congress, on that sub
ject, had been strictly carried out. The facts
have already been published. •
The President also transmitted a message,
enclosing a communication from the Gover

The Albany Atlas has a chatty female New

her last letter she talks in this wise : '
In spite of high winds, cold weather, sloppy

It is enough to cause many an economical
heart ache to watch the progress to ruin of

purity and gloss from Union Square, to-lit

be subjected for twenty four hours to incon
veniences which her followers here bear so
patiently, she would at once crush the trade

Brown is the color; thedress a shade lighter
than the Fischerltusse cap and muff. Double
skirts supercede flounces for the promenade,
the edge of the upper skirt extends to the
knee, and both are trimmed with blush, or an
imitation of chinchilla fur, woven in with the
material of the dress.
TEXAS AND AaKANsAs.—The emigration to
these States from the older slave States is re
markably large, and seems constantly on the
increase. A recent number of the Memphis
"We have never before observed so large
a number of emigrants going westward as
are crossing the river at this point daily, the
two ferry boats (sometimes three) going
crowded from early morn until the boats
cease making their trips at night. It is no
uncommon sight to see'frorn twenty to forty
wagons encamped on the bluff for the night,
notwithstanding there has been a steady
stream going across the river all day; and
yet the cry is still they . come. This emigra
tion is from the older States, mostly Virginia,
North and South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama,
Mississippi, and this State, all going to settle
in Arkansas and Texas. Judging from these
indications, the influx of population into
these States will be larger this season than
ever before, and of good substantialcitizens.".
IYE Dr. Landerer, amedical man at Athens,
announces that he has discovered a sovereign
specific against sea-sickness. His remedy is
to give from ten, to twelve drops of chloro
form in water. The chloroform, in most ea
ses, removes nausea, and persons who have
taken the remedy soon become able to stand
up and get accustomed to the movdment of
the vessel. Should the sickness return, a
fresh dose is to be taken.

Burning the Dead.
The sprightly Paris correspondent of the
New York Times says:
The subject of burning the dead still oe
cupies the public attention. George Ssn
and Lamaratine have given in their adhesion
to the project. Madame Sand expresses her
opinion very strongly in favor of it ; she wish
es to be burnt—all opinions are respectable;
let her be burnt therefore. As for other de
functs, it would he well at least to have their
opinion before proceeding to change the pres
ent state of things. For myself, to rot in one
common earth, or to be burnt in ashes, and
sealed in an urn decorated with a label, an
nouncing my name, place of birth, qualities,
etc., etc., etc.—these two alternatives seem to
me equally devoid of charm, and plunge me
into melancholy. For the presentl bequeath
the subject to my heirs.
But another plan is proposed for disposing
of the dead---a plan which is cleaner, more
elegant and more chemical. By means of a
hideous paraphernalia of crucibles, alembics,
exhausters and poisons, the body is suscepti
ble of being reduced to an indefinitely small
solid substance, of which a ring may be made
in variagated colors to wear around the fin
ger. The disconsolate wife or husband, can
thus preserve the souvenir of a dear departed
partner to the end of their lives; and if the
burden of their grief should push them to a
desire to join the lost . one, they would have
but to crush the ring and swallow its pieces
in order to accomplish a hasty and sure sui
cide. This mourning by chemistry, this pet
rifaction by death, has something so fantas
tic about it that one cannot avoid a certain
titillation of curiosity in talking of it. It
would be a conservation of relics by com
A widow might have her husband mounted
in the frame of a bracelet, which would re
call to her the hymenial chain. A husband
might mount his wife in a pin, which would
be piquant. For the academicians an appro
priate human conservation would be a garni
ture of coat buttons.
There is still another process, which I only
mention for the benefit of future historians.
An eccentric Frenchman who filled, a few
years ago, the functions of a dragoman at
one of the large cities of the Orient, conceiv
ed the ferdcious idea of making. of the ven
erated skin of his wife an article of wearing
apparel, which I should name in Latin if I
knew what the Romans called breeches.—
But the process is savage. This species of
sentimental tannery would have the air of
THE MURDER. OF YOUZZG NORCROSS.—The
last number of the Altoona Tribune contains
full particulars of the late horrible tragedy
near that place. We have already given the
main features of the affair, but the following
medical testimony, as elicited by the Coro
ner's jury, will be read with interest:
Dr. J. A. Landis, sworn—Have made a post
mortem examination of . the body of deceased;
found a. wound in his throat about 44 inches
in length; there were no large or important
blood vessels injured by this wound; the
larynx- or upper part of the windpipe was ex
posed but not cut; this wound was evidently
produced by a sharp cutting instrument ;
found another wound upon the right side of
the jaw above the chin; this is a ragged and
contused wound, producing a complete frac
ture of the lower jaw; another wound was
found upon the right side of the face, com
mencing at the external angle of the eye, ex
tending over the cheek 2f inches in length,
producing a very extensive fracture of the
cheek bone, extending under the orbit of the
eye and reaching to the base of the skull; a
small wound was found on the posterior part
of the head to the right side, merely dividing
the scalp without producing any fracture ; a
small wound was observed upon the bridge
of the nose, producing an external and in
ternal fracture of all the bones of the nose ;
there are some bruises and contusions of the
skin about the lower extremities, which of
- themselves , are of no importance. [The club
found by the body, was here shown to the
witness.] He stated that all the wounds ex
cept the one on the throat could have been
Produced by it; the wound on the side of the
face was sufficient to have caused death ; no

wounds; from a tall it is evident that the face
would have been more ' bruised, While the

From the testimony it appears that Nor

Altoona. lie was on his hands and knees,
and still living. He tried to speak, but no
body heard any words,' except one witness,
who understood him to say, "My God." He
was placed on a locomotive, and taken to
town, where he died in a short time. The
Tribune says :
"A light snow having fallen on Friday
night, rendered it somewhat difficult for the
jury to discover all the marks of blood which
had been found on the day previous. After
a little search, however, the place where the
man had evidently first been knocked down
and his throat cut, and where the razor was
picked up on the day previous, was found by
a quantity of blood on the end of a cross tie
of the north track of the railroad. From the
marks of blood on the cross ties and the ap
pearance of the ballast it is evident that the
man was dragged from the north track across
to the south track, and thence down the in
side of the track some fifty-five feet, to the
place where he was 'found in the ditch. Hay
mg obtained all the information required the
jury started back to town. One of the jury
men having carried the club which was found,
near the body, on the morning previous,
search was made along the way for wood that
would correspond, (mountain beach) and sin
gular as it may appear, a stick was pulled
out of a pile of cord-word, about half a mile
below where the man was found, which cor
responded with the one carried by the jury
man, in every particular. This although a
slight circumstance . in itself, convinced the
jury that the person or persons had gone up

a verdict to' the effect that Samuel T. Nor

or some other heavy instrument, in the hands

ARRIVAL OE TIIE JAMES ADGER,
NEW Yoinc, Jan. 24.—The 'James Adger
left San Juan on the 13th and put into Key
West. She was detained there 32 hours.
The purser reports that the cholera has dis
appeared from the Isthmus. There was but
little sickness and no deaths on the Adger.

waiting at Punta Arenas the completione of a
steamer to be ready about the 17th.
The Adger encountered great fields of ice
on her homeward passage between 37 and 39:
The passengers of the Adger give a gloomy
account of Walker's situation,
The seizure of the Transit Route and
steamboats by Spencer is confirmed.—
Spencer states openly that he acted in behalf
of Vanderbilt. No injury was offered the
passengers of the captured boats, but they
were escorted to Greytown where the steamer
was boarded by an officer from a British man
of War, who ordered the baggage of the men
to be put off immediately. Spencer kept the
American flag flying from his steamer,
although he made captures in the name of
President Mora, President of the Costa Ri
can government, had issued a proclamation
granting a pardon to Walker's men and a
free passage back to the United States.—
Many of Walker's men, both officers and
privates, were deserting. They all tell hard
stories of their sufferings from hunger and
sickness. Walker was still. at Rivas with
600 men; another account says 1200.
Spender states that the Costa Ricans have
1500 troops posted along the route. They
were also in strong force at Seraqui, and
have guns posted on both shores.
The report that Gen. Henningsen bad
fought his way out of Granada and joined
Walker is confirmed, as also a rumor that
'Gen. Chilton with a large body of men had
pronounced for Walker at Leon.
Walker, it is said, took Rivas without
losing a man. Capt. Saunders, with his
rifles, had advanced. to Leon to occupy that

ans who give very conflicting stories.
GREAT SNOW STORM IN ExcLaxn.—The
moors of Yorkshire, have been visited for the
past few days by one of the most severe
storms of wind and snow experienced in that
locality for a very long period. The storm
set in on Christmas night, with a severe frost
and a heavy downfall of snow. In the neigh
borhood of Skipton its effects are very disas
trous, and they have been experienced with
more or less severity throughout the whole of
the Cravan district, by which the farmers
hare sustained serious losses. The high pre
vailing winds drove the snow like an ava
lanche before it, and the sheep had to be dug
from drifts three and four yards in depth.—
One farmer, who had nearly 500 sheep out,
has scarcely recovered a tithe of them alive.
On Coistone Moor, 30 sheep were taken out
dead from one of the drifts; on Embsay Moor,
9 were found huddled together in a similar
hole; on Graeoe Fell, a large number were
either smothered in the snow drifts or frozen
to death. Indeed, throughout the whole
neighborhood, similar disastrous losses have
been experienced by the farmers. The keen
frost has still continued at night, with partial
thaws during the day.—London, Times, Dec.
A MAN SAWED IN PIECES.--We find the
following paragraph in the Nebraska Adver
tiser of the 20th ult:
"On Saturday, the Bth inst., a Mr. Smith
suffered a most horrible death at Smithfield,
in Woodbury county. He was engaged as a
sawyer in the new steam mill at that place,
and whilst gigging back the carriage got his
foot caught by the saw, which split his leg
nearly the whole length before he could with
draw it, then by an unaccountable destiny
his body fell across the log, before the saw
and - was severed in the middle, most horri
bly mutilating, in fact cutting the body into
numerous pieces which were gathered and
decently interred. The deceased left a wife
and two children."
FROSTED FEET.—Heat a brick very hot and
hold the feet over it as closely as it can be
held without burning. Cut an onion in two,
and dipping it repeatedly in salt, rub it over
the foot. The juice of the onion will be dried
into the foot, and effect a cure in a very short
time. If this is done for a few times it is al
most certain to cure your feet entirely.—. E
..At London, a few weeks since, a man
was playing with a cat, when the animal sei
zed one of his fingers with its teeth so tightly
that he had great difficulty in shaking it off.
At night he became unwell, and afterwards
went into St. Bartholomew's Hospital, where
the injured finger mortified, and he died.
The new colonization ship Mary Catharine
Stevens, lately sailed from Baltimore and
Norfolk, with over 200 emigrants for Libe

can Republic several years ago, and returned
only to avail himself of the generous offer
made by a friend of Africa to furnish means
for his collegiate education. Having availed
himself of it he now goes back, prepared for
increased usefulness, and with the intention
of making Liberia his permanent home. It
is strange that more of this class of our pop

poverty and degradation over freedom and
independence and admitted nationality on
