and a half.
T/IE NEXT STATE FAIR.—The next annual
Fair of the State Agricultural Society will
be held at Pittsburg, in September. The
citizens of that city have subscribed the ne
cessary amount to secure it—two thousand
dollars. The State Society has leased the
County Fair grounds of the County Society.
The Lecompton press agree, that by
the English bill, there is a virtual submission
of the Lecompton Constitution to a vote of
the people of the Territory. The anti-Le
compton press admit the same interpretation,
though not submitted in as honorable a man
ner as was contended fur. The Lecompton
ites contended for the admission of Kansas
without a submission of her constitution to
the people,—if then, the constitution is sub
mitted, where is the victory the Lecompton
ites have gained over those they consider as
having stepped out of the ranks of the party.
ANOTHER STATE ADHITTED.---The House of
Representatives, on Tuesday, the 18th inst.,
finally passed the bill, which bad previously
gone through the Senate, for the admission
of ISlinnesota into the Union as a State, and
we thus have now a galaxy of thirty-two
stars to emblazon upon the national standard.
Should Kansas elect to come in under the
recent act of Congress, there will be still
another State to add to the list. Minnesota
had already made choice of her Senators and
Representatives in anticipation of her admis
sion, and the former have taken their seats.
Gen. SHIELDS and Mr. RICE are the Senators-
The act of admission allows the State two
Representatives, although she had claimed
and elected three. Ryan arrangement among
them, Mr. BECKER has withdrawn, and re
turned home, leaving Messrs. CAvANAtiun and
PHELPS to enjoy the honors and emoluments
LOCALS.—Upwards of a thousand tons of
coal came down from Broad Top in one day

principally by Rail Road.
The through and local tonnage *on the

The boating business is not as good as it
has been in former seasons—but there is a

Death of Gen. F. Smith.
This brave and accomplished officer died at
Fort Leaavenwort, Kansas, .on the 17th ult.
Gen. Smith was born in Philadelphia, Nov.
1798, and after having graduated at Prince
town, and studied law with Charles Chaun
cey, Esq., entered the army during the Flor
ida war, and served two campaigns under
Gen. Gaines. On the breaking out of the
Mexican war, the Governor of Louisiana ten
dered to Gen. Smith the command of the vol
unteers from that State, which post he ac
cepted, and served on the Rio Grande with
credit and distinction. For his gallant ser
vices at the battle of Monterey he was bre
vetted Brigadier-General. After this battle,
Gen. Smith joined the column under the lead
of Lieut. Gen. Scott, and participated in all
those actions which took place between Vera
Cruz and the City of Mexico. At Contreras,
Chepultepec, and the gates of Mexico, Gen.
Smith was- present, and displayed all those
noble, daring qualities for which ho was so
distinguished. At the close of the war with
Mexico, Gen. Smith was ordered to Califor_
nia in command of that Military Department.
Subsequently he held a similar command in
Texas. In 1856, he was ordered to Kansas,
where he has remained as chief, until quite
recently, when he was appointed to the cora
•mand of the expedition to Utah. His death
'took place when he was en route for the Mor
-mon settlement to asssume the head of the
troops operating in that section ofthe Union.
;,Gen. Smith was a chivalric soldier, a good
- ;citizen, and a vi-arm and devoted friend.—
His loss is a National calamity.
It is said that Stephen Arnold Douglas, has given notice
that he will not join the Republicans. (llas he not done
so already?) Others who took a prominent position with
him, have, since the passage of the Kansas bill, signified a
like disposition to remain in the Democratic fold. We do
not object. We have never had any disposition to "kick
men out of the party;" we have been sorry to nee the
manifest disposition of many to "go out." We in e ready
now as ever to extend to all returning prodigals the hand
of friendship and fellowship. But what is to become of
those papers whose editors have been so shamefully used
by the flattery and promises of those very men who now
declare riot only a willingness, but an open determination
to abandon them in the slough into which they led them?
Some foreseeing the result, have already signified their
penitence. and returned; but there are others whose keen
sense of the ridiculous position in which they have been
placed, will hardly allow them to come back to the fold.—
It st Chester Jeffersonian.
That able Democratic press, the Lycoming
Gazette, published at Williamsport, replies to
the above in a proper spirit. Its language
is equally applicable to other Lecompton pa
pers in the State, including the Standard, of
Hollidaysburg. - The Globe shall remain firm
upon the plank, with the Gazette and many
other Democratic presses of the State, which
carried James Buchanan safely into the Pre
sidential Chair—the noise of the pop-guns of
the sliding-scale politicians to the contrary
The Gazette says:—"About the surest way
we know of to divide and distract the Demo
cratic party, and secure its defeat in October,
is for Lecompton journals and Lecompton
leaders to steadily pursue the utterance of
such supercillious blotter as we have quoted
above. The Democrats of Lycoming county,
who thought in November, and still think,
that the Lecompton Constitution should have
been submitted to a full and fair vote of the
people of Kansas before its acceptance by
Congress—and they number hard on to three
thousand—will no doubt receive with un
bounded joy the assurance that the Jefferso
nian does 'not object' to their remaining in
the Democratic party; that it never 'had any
disposition to kick them out,' and that, as
`returning prodigals,' it is 'now, as ever,
ready to extend to them the hand of friend
ship and fellowship.' But some of the more
doubting among them may desire to know
who made the Affersonian a judge of what is
Democracy and what is not, and who gave to
it the power to grant permissions to remain
within or to kick out' of the Democratic
party whomsoever it will. They may want
to see some tangible evidence of proper au
thority before they can rest satisfied that
their absolution is legitimate and perfect.—
Perhaps the fc . ffiy.yoitian had better forward
to Lycoming county a duly authenticated
copy of its commission as party regulator, to
let us see its form and signatuies.
As for those papers whose editors have
been so shamefully used by the flattery and
promises of these very men,' we can vouch
for them that they are able to take care of
themselves, without any interference or exer
cise of the pardoning power by the Jiferso
nian„or anybody else. So far as the Gazette
is concerned, if the kickers out' will take
the trouble to examine the Cincinnati plat
form carefully, they will be apt to discover—
perhaps to their own discomfiture—that it
stands squarely upon the most vital plank—
has stood there from the first, and intends to
stand there to the end, without manifesting
any 'penitence' or feeling 'ridiculous,' and
without reference to political inclined-plane
bodies, that slide up or down at the word of
the man at the windlass.
If Lecompton journals would do something
to promote the success of the Democratic
State ticket in October, and say less about
Kansas, they would act much more sensibly
and accomplish much more good. The idle
prating about kicking out' of the party has
already been carried to such an extent that
its repetition only engenders contempt for the
imbecility that gives it utterance. Pennsyl
vania Democrats are not such fools that they
can be frightened into the belief that one
tenth of the party has the power to kick the
other nine-tenths out."
- EARLY WIIEAT.-A Baltimore paper says
that a bundle of wheat stalks, in head, was
exhibited in that city May 5, and that the
early wheat of the South will be in market
before the Ist of June. There are now im
mense quantities of wheat grown in all the
Southern states. Georgia, in particular, is a
great wheat-producing State, especially in the
Cherokee country. The fine promise of good
crops and early harvests everywhere must
affect the price of old wheat and flour.
A• Murder by a Mob--Citizens Under
lowa city was on Tuesday last the scene of
a mob, and of a horrid murder. The facts,
as we gather them from the Reporter and the
Dubuque Herald, are as follows: "A perso
nal animosity existed between two men named
Wilkinson and Phillips. On Monday night
Phillips's barn was burned, and his partisans
suspected Wilkinson of setting it on fire. On
this naked suspicion, they went to the house
of Wilkinson, tore him from his wife and
children, bound his hands behind his back,
and cast him headlong into the lowa river,
and drowned him. Over thirty residents of
lowa City were concerned in this horrible
The lowa City Reporter, of Friday, says:
" The commotion of Wednesday, growing out
of the late death of Boyd Wilkinson, con
tinued without abatement, pretty much all
Wednesday night, every one appearing to
share in the excitement. Towards evening,
it was rumored that Henry Gray, a leader of
the affair of Tuesday, was preparing to leave
the city, and his person was sought for by a
few special advocates of 'law and order.'—
The following are the names of the persons
under arrest up to the present writing : A.
Curtis, S. Shelladay, F. M. Irish, P. Clark,
M. Freeman, Charles Brown, Charles Dow,
Wm. Canott, James Kennedy, D. Marshall,
and James Studer. It is proper to state that,
of these eleven, none made any attempt to

Honesty is not merely the best policy—it is
the of/1y policy. Neither the private citizen,
nor the public officer can sustain his action
by any prurripal which contravenes it. We
arc glad to believe the great body of the
American people acknowledge and defend
this truth. They require it in all their agents.
Parties losing sight of it, soon receive the
reward of execration, and our institutions,
without it, would possess neither comeliness
Individuals relying upon the meaner trait
of cunning instead of the higher and nobler
impulses of the heart, may have had brief
seasons of success, but never the popular af
fection or a permanent reward. Our histo
ry is replete with proofs of this. No intel
lect, however forceable or commanding—no
station, however exalted and dignified—can
set at nought the requirements of truth and
justice, and retain the respect of the world. It
is well it is so. If it were etberwise,virtue and
vice would soon become confounded, and
christianity and civilization would cease to
record their triumphs.
There never has been a time since the
birth of our Republic, when it was more ne
cessary to recall these things to mind, than
at the present moment. We believe there
are strong tendencies to degeneracy—strong
er than ever before—in the men filling and
aspiring to place. Why this is so, we will
not attempt, at this time, to point out. But
sure it is, that in certain quarters, and by
certain persons, consistent honesty is derided
and denounced as out of fashion and out of
use. Just now political charletanisra and
political jugglery are aiming to rise to the
dignity of a profession, and to the influence
of power. We wait impatiently for the pub
lished result of their travel among the uncor
rupted masses. We have no doubt as to
what it will be. They will " fall like Luci
fer, never to hope again." If it shall turn
out otherwise, then let good men fall back in

To 'whose cause shall we adhere ? Shall we
seek safety in the counsels of the former or
the later ?
The school of political vice, now turning
out its graduates upon us with " rewards of
merit," is not located upon the wooded hill
tops or in the agricultural valleys, but in the
miasmatic atmosphere of Washington. Over
its portal is inscribed in golden letters, "Mon_
cy is God— Hrorshipit," a command easily
learned and eagerly obeyed, and more espe
cially so, by the public servant, if we are per
mitted to judge from 'recent occurrences.—
When we see legislators, who should at least
possess pride of character, trampling under
foot principles long professed and well foun
ded, and leaping into the arena with a hasty
zeal to defend a patent crime, at the motion
of the hand holding and dispensing unlimited
patronage, can we err in supposing that cor
ruption is at work ? And will laws procured,
attract to them the reverence of the citzens,
and tend to sustain the citidel of our liberties
—the government of our hopes ? We fear
not. Republicanism is said to be but an ex
periment. The interests of man should secure
its success. The want of virtue will insure
failure. All we can do in such times as the
present, is to warn against the touch of the
political leper, and to ask those who still love
their country, to demand integrity and to
prescribe infamy. The future is still before
us, and in it we can gain all or loose all.—

EXECUTION OF WM. WILLIAMS AT Mums

risburg on Friday last, for the murder of
About 11 o'clock, on the 3d of May, 1857,
Daniel Hendricks was at the house of the
condemned, near Gratztown, and whilst there
had several drinks with Williams. The two
started across the mountain, and when last
seen together were on the top of the moun
tain, about three hundred feet above the
On the evening of the 2Gth May, a much
decayed body, identified as that of Hendricks,
was found on Short mountain, about three
fourths of a mile from Williams's house, with
a slouched hat under the head, and on the
body two coats, two shirts, vest, pantaloons,
and boots. A jury was empannelled, made
a partial examination of the body that night,
and in the morning a warrant was issued for
the arrest of Williams, who was taken on his
way to NI ork. The body was again viewed,
and two holes were found in the right side,
two inches above the hip, and about two-and
a-half inches apart, evidently made by a gun,
The facts of a watch being found on Wil
liams, which belonged to deceased, and his
own statement that he was the last man with
Hendricks, were the principal evidence which
led to his conviction.
Williams was convicted on very strong cir
cumstantial evidence, and be had since ad
mitted his guilt. But he had shown but little
sensibility in view of his impending fate, and
although he had received the visits of clergy
men and others, who went to converse on re
ligion, they seemed to make but little impres
sion on him, and he had manifested entire
indifference, until within a day or two, when
ho began to show some uneasiness, and to be
restless at night.
The execution drew a large crowd of peo
ple to town, and about seventy obtained ad-
mission into the jail yard to witness the
A large crowd were outside, and the roofs
of the houses overlooking the prison yard
were filled with people, anxious to witness
the execution. Some of these positions were
rented at fifty cents and a dollar each.
The wife, three children, and sister of the
condemned visited the prisoner on Thursday
and Friday morning. He exhibited but little
feeling, evincing a stolid indifference.
The prisoner was taken out of his cell and
placed on the scaffold at ten minutes of twelve
o'clock, dressed in a shroud of white flannel,
and wearing a cap. Ile uttered not a word,
except simply to reply "Yes," when asked
whether the minister should pray for him.
Interesting Report on the Tariff
PROPOSITION TO ENTIRELY ABANDON THE PRO
TECTIVE POLICY AND RESORT TO DIRECT
WASHINGTON, May 19.—lion. Win. W.
Boyce, of South Carolina, has made a report
in the House of Representatives, from the
Select Committee, on the Tariff, etc.
It takes ground that the protective policy
should be entirely abandoned, and resort as
early as practicable to direct taxation, as a
measure of economy.
Articles of prime necessity should be taxed
at the lowest rate of duty, and the burden
thrown as much as possible on luxuries.
The Navigation laws should be so modified
as not to require any portion of the officers
and crews of American ships to be American
seamen, and that American citizens should
be free to purchase and sail foreign built
ships on entire equality with American built
ships, and the American coasting trade should
be open on terms of perfect equality to for
The Committee say they do not entertain
the hope that they can inaugurate this new
policy now. Such radical changes must be
the work of time. They do not, therefore,
look so much to immediate practical results
as to the effect on public opinion, and thus
ultimately insure the triumph of the princi
ples they advocate.

Dr. Hardman treats Consumption, Bronchitis. Asthma.,
Larryngittis and all diseases of the throat and lungs. by
Medical Inhalation. lately used in the Brewton Hospital,
London. The great point in the treatment of all human
maladies, is to get at the disease in the direct manner.—
All medicines are estimated by their action upon the organ
requiring relief. This is the important fact upon which
Inhalation is based. If the stomach is diseased we take
medicine directly into the stomach. If the lungs are dis
eased, breathe or inhale medicated vapors directly into
the lungs. Medicines are antidotes to disease and should
be applied to the very seat of disease. Inhalation is the
application of this principle to the treatment of the lungs,
for it gives us direct access to those intricate air cells ' and
tubes which lie out of reach of every other means of ad
ministering medicines. The reason that Consumption.
and other diseases of the lungs, have heretofore resisted
all treatment has been because they have never been ap
proached in 0 direct manner by medicine. They were in
tended to Oct upon the lungs, and yet were applied to the
stomach. Their action was intended to be local, and yot,
they were so administered that they should only act con
stitutionally, expending their immediate and principal ac
tion upon the unoffending stomach, whilst the foul ulcers
within the lungs were unmolested. Inhalation brings
the medicine in direct contact with the disease, without
the disadvantage of any violent action. Its application is
so simple, that it can be employed by the youngest infant
or feeblest invalid. It does not derange the stomach, or in
terfere in the least degree with the strength, conthwt : or
tinniness of the patient.
Other Diseases Treated.—ln relation to the following dis
eases, either when complicated with lung affections or ex
isting alone. I also invite consultation, I usually find them
l'rolapsus and all other forms of Female Complaints, Tr
regularities and Weakness.
Palpitation and all other forms of "Heart Disease, Liver
Complaints Dyspepsia., and all other diseases of stomach
All diseas'es of the eye and ear. Neuralgia, Epilepsy,
and all forms of nervous disease.
