PUGILISTIC.--On Friday last, a couple of
female darkies, occupying the old stable of
M. Strous, on Washington street, engaged in
a most disgraceful and outlandish encounter,
in the way of pugilism. Knives were freely
used, as was the tongue of both combatants.
After some very indecent and obsce❑e lan
guage, they went at it with knives in hand,
and the way they cut and slashed at each
other, was a sight not to be envied. Such
conduct is in direct violation of the law, and
we can not see why it is tolerated. Some of
the darkies of this town are a. nuisance, and
the sooner we get rid of them the better.
A POPULAR " INSTITUTION"—THE SLEEP
ING CAR.—On Wednesday night last, at 10i,
we took the sleeping car for Philadelphia, and
we must confess it is the greatest improve
ment of the age for comfort in traveling. We
soon fell asleep, and waked up in time to
wash, brush up, pull on our boots, handsome
ly blackened, and were ready for an early
breakfast in the city, scarcely believing it
possible that we had traveled over two hun
dred miles. The car, which cost 53500, is
substantially and elegantly built and finished
of oak and walnut, highly polished, having
sufficient length for seven compartments on
either side, in each of which there are four
seats, susceptible of transformation into as
many berths,. in about forty-five seconds, by
a person who is always at hand for that pur
pose. When arranged for sleeping, each
" seat " has its corresponding berth, substan
tially upholstered, with pillow, curtains, and
all complete, and, if desired, sliding lattice
doors shut off each section into comparative
privacy and seclusion. When restored to
luxurious seats an abundance of room is af
forded; a bracket table projects from the side
of the car for reading or other convenience ;
a ventilator admits or expels the air at pleas
ure, &c., &c. The car is furnished with a
stove at each end, a wash room, water vases,
closets, &c. Indeed, it would require quite
an effort of the mind to realize the fact that
one was not in some well appointed hotel or
crack steamer, so many and elegant are the
appointments of the Patent Sleeping Cars.
Mn. Enrvon.—This lovely May morning, I
seat myself to pen a few lines for your valu
able paper. There is scarcely a cloud to be
seen, and the sun is shining forth in all the
.splendor and magnificence • of a Summer's
day. The birds are warbling their sweet
songs of praise to their maker, who has en
dowed them with such delightful music, equal
led by no instrument invented by man—the
trees are putting forth their leaves in all their
beauty and loveliness, and. man's heart is
made glad at the approach of Summer. Who
does not hail it with boundless delight? The
hills surrounding our beautiful town are now
being clothed in their accustomed green foliage
And as the eye gazes upon them it makes the
heart dance with joy. Who does not love to
stroll over the hills on a Summer's evening
and look at the wondrous workings of nature,
and of nature's God ?
I will stop my ra using lest I lead you to the be
lief that I am a member of that order, com
monly known as " Sentimentalists." I am
not, Mr. Editor, and don't you believe a word
of it. I never make odes to the moon, nor
anything of the kind. They say a variety is
the spice of life, and that is what I am en
deavoring to give to your readers, however
feeble that effort may be. I will leave this
subject by quoting those beautiful lines
ascribed to Spring, by Lady Carew which are
fitted for the season :
Now do a choir of chirping minstrels bring
In triumph to the world, the youthful Spring.
The valleys, hills, and woods, in rich array,
Welcome the coining of the otted-for May.
Now all things smile."
The Difficulties in Utah
The detailed accounts received from the
Territory of Utah show that a very unfortu
nate state of affairs now exists there. From
the moment the expedition entered its borders,
there does not appear to have been an entire
cordiality of feeling and harmony of action
between Gov. Cumming and Gen. Johnston.
The American soldiers after suffering the
privations of their long journey, and their
exposed winter encampment—with fearful
stories of Mormon violence constantly dinned
into their ears—naturally enough longed for
a strife in which those whose contumacy had
led them to that distant region might be pun
ished and military laurels gained ; while
Gov. Cumming, as a civil officer, wisely and
humanely desired to secure a peaceful adjust
ment of the existing difficulties. The judges
knowing that their predecessors had been
constantly engaged in a conflict with the
Mormon people, previous to the arrival of the
army, and conscious that there was very lit
tle probability of Mormon juries paying prop
er respect to American courts, appear, from
the outset, to have regarded the Mormons
rather with the feelings natural to prosecu
ting attorneys than the calm and unimpas
sioned sentiments of. impartial judges: Af
ter the proclamation of the President, grant
ing amnesty for past offences, had been read
and circulated, and the civil control of the
Territory fully vested in Gov. Cumming, or
der and quiet for a time prevailed. The
District Attorney weakened this feeling when
he unwisely instituted prosecutions for crimes
which had clearly been pardoned by the
President. But, having failed in that under
taking, another difficulty has arisen. A court
has recently been summoned at Provo, an im
portant Mormon town. The Grand jury was
composed of men selected by what is called
the County Court, which consists of officers of
the same character as the County Commis
sioners of Pennsylvania. Various bills of in
dictment were framed, among which were
bills against two Indians, named Mose and
Looking : Glass, who were charged with as
sault, with intent to commit a rape, on a
Danish Mormon girl, and a bill against a
Mormon for procuring and enticing soldiers
to desert These bills of indictment were
promptly found ; but the attention of the jury
was also directed to indictments against a
number of leading Mormons, for the murder
of the two Parrishes, father and son, and
Potter, at Springville, in March, 1857. The
allegation was that the deceased had aposta
tised from the Mormon Church, and deter
mined to emigrate to California ; that the
Mormons resolved to prevent their depar
ture, and finding it impossible to persuade
the apostates to remain, they were shot down
on the road, after they had travelled but a
few miles on their journey. The judge spe
cially directed the attention of the Grand
Jury to this case. After several weeks of
deliberation, it failed or refused to find a
true bill, in consequence, as the Judge al
leges of the fact that its members were rela
ted to, or sympathised with the murderers.—
The court there discharged them in an in
dignant speech, denouncing in violent terms
their neglect, and concluding with the follow
"If it is expected that this court is to be
used by this community as a means of pro
tecting it against the pecadilloes of Gentiles
and Indians, unless this community will pun
ish its own murderers, such expectations will
not be realised. It will not be used for such
" When this people come to their reason
and manifest a disposition to punish their
own high offenders, it will then be time to en
force the law also fin• their protection. If
this court cannot bring you to a sense of your
duty, it can at least turn the savages in cus
tody loose upon you."
In compliance with this threat, the Judge
is reported to have set free the two Indians
charged with rape, and thus to have practi
cally retorted upon the Mormons by giving
them to understand, that if they would not
assist him in punishing those whom he re
garded as criminals, be would not assist them
In punishing those against whom their ani
mosity was excited.
One of the first acts of Judge Cradlebaugb,
after the court assembled, was to send to
General Johnston for a company of United
States troops to guard and protect the court,
to take charge of such prisoners as might be
ordered into custody,,and to shield witnesses
from Mormon vengeance, with which it is al
leged they were threatened. This request
was promptly complied with. Soon after the
soldiers assembled, the Mayor and Common
Council of Provo, remonstrated both to the
Judge and the Governor, against the employ
ment of the U. S. troops to assist in the perfor
mance of a strictly judicial duty. The judge
denounced this remonstrance, and persisted in
maintaining an armed guard around the court.
Gov. Cumming sympathised with the citizens,
and wrote a letter to General Johnston request
ing the withdrawal of the troops, but his request
was not complied with; indeed, additional
forces were sent to the aid of the first compa
ny. The Governor then issued a proclama
tion, in which he formally protested against
the employment of the troops around the
court-house at Provo, alleging that their pres
ence had a tendency to terrify the inhabitants,
to disturb the peace of the Territory; and to
subvert the ends of justice, and that the
troops were placed there without his consent
and in opposition to the letter and spirit of
his instructions. His course was warmly ap
proved by the Mormons, some of whom are
said to contemplate an organization of the
militia, to be arrayed against the United
States troops. Judge Cradlebaugh, on re
ceiving the proclamation of the Governor, at
tacked it in open court, denying some of its
statements, and declaring that his court is not
subservient to, and will not act under Execu
tive dictation. So the case appears to stand
at present—the army and the Judge favoring
rigorous measures against the Mormons,
while the Governor is anxious to conciliate
them and to fully restore peace in the Ter
The difficulty is an unfortunate one. It is
quite evident that there can be no harmony
of action for the promotion of the ends of
justice between the Judges and the Mormon
juries, and that such a spirit of antagonism
has been aroused between them that they act
more like two hostile forces, or two opposing
parties to one suit, than as co-ordinate
branches of a common system of jurispru

An important point in his history was his early piety_
He embraced religion when a youth, and ever after ad.
hered strictly to his Christian profession, which, doubtless,
exerted a powerful influence in preserving him from the
fashionable vices of this generation. We do not claim for
Lim entire exemption from the errors incident to mortal
life; but take great pleasure in saying, he was never so
much as charged with a crime or dishonorable act; and
such was the urbanity of his manners, that he bad as few
enemies as any other man.
He was also a highly useful member of the Church.
His house was at all times the home of ministers, where
they were at once made welcome and comfortable; and his
money was freely bestowed for charitable and religious
purposes; and while he honored God in this respect, the
Lord honored him with spiritual blessings in Heavenly
places. His example as a lively member of the Church
was worthy of imitation, giving punctual attendance on
all the means of grace, while his health allowed. The
last two years of his life were years of great bodily afflic
tion, during which he exhibited the proofs of a patient
chastened spirit. No word of murmuring ever escaped
his lips, but many expressions of devout thankfulness to
God for the riches of his grace and providence. He stated
to his friends that he " desired to depart and be with
Christ, if it was Heaven's will, for to be absent from the
body, was to be present with the Lord."
His life was one brilliant exhibition of the Christian
graces, and his end was peaceful as Summer's setting sun.
What more could be desired? lie had lived many years,
and lived to a good purpose. To his family he left an un
sullied reputation, and a holy example for imitation. He
accomplished the end of living, got well through and
safely out of this world to a better. May we follow him
as he followed Christ S M.

the outside was most severely scorched. Yours truly,

NOTICE TO MILL OWNERS.
The undersigned has purchased the right of Hun

TURBINE WATER WHEEL, of Timothy Rose, patented
September 20, 1850. This wheel has been successfully
introduced in all the Eastern States, and some of the Wes
tern, and wherever introduced, has proven to be the most
efficient and economical wheel for the use of water, that
has ever been invented for Saw Mills, and driving other
machinery where there is a quick motion required.
The important features of this wheel for saw mills, are
briefly these: Ist. It is made of cast iron, and for that
reason is much less liable to be troubled with ice, as the
cast iron generates heat much quicker than the wooden
wheel, and not liable to decay. 2d. Its cheapness of con
struction and the amount of effective power obtained from
it. 3d. The manner in which they are constructed, being
unlike all other wheels for saw mills, making it evident
that they are easy of access under any circumstances for
repairs, or anything else. The shafts and wheels can be
taken out of their place without removing any part of the
plum. 4. Its great per tentage of power to the water ex
pended, and its uniformity of per centage and power, when
the gate is but partially raised.
This wheel claims a superiority over all other water
wheels now in use for saw mills, inasmuch as a much lar
ger per ventage is saved in the power of propulsion, and
works equally well under either high or low heads, and is
a valuable power fur those who find it necessary to econo
mize in water.
All further information will be cheerfully given by the
subscriber at Potter's Mill, Centre county, Pa., who is pre
pared to put in wheels at short notice and on reasonable
terms. JOHN TODD.
