'1 ho "lone- existing complications" whicb Itussia is thus lepoilud to bu anxious to set lie. with tho Head of tbe Catholic Church dnto buck to the tleliheruto persecution by 1'iiKsia of tliu l'nlish Catholics; ami to be reminded of them now in to bo confronted with un exquisitely siimis- tic roimnclitury upon tuo prnlesseilly hiiniunu and phihmthriipic objects with whicb liussin anil the rest of the Chris tian power httvo been nixing lor months past upon Turkey the nueessi ty of rclni'minn her admiiiislrutinn tf her own provinces. If it is the right and the duly of the European powers to interfere in tho internal atTuirs of Turkey for tho pnrpogo of proventing tho ubiisu ot Christum nivalis by Mos lem uu I dor i lief, it certainly was their right and their duty to interfere in the internal nfl'airs of Ilussia to prevent tho abuse of Polish Catholics hy .Mus covite officials. I'or it will hardly be pretended ut this time of day tbat tbe liorMcculion ol Christians are general ny Muhomelann, is in its nature a worse and mole odious thing than tbe perse culion of one particular communion of Christians. To pretend this would be to glvo a tremendous public weight to tho surdonle HKueh ol tbe llurnneH de liothschild, who. when an Knglish l.ow Cbiireb woman ot tbe ntraitest sect de clined to join her luncheon party on the ground that she could not consist ently break bread .with Cardinal Wise man because ho was a lioniisb priust, replied witBu'Ciiptiviiliiig sluilit: V on " must excuse me, my dear, but as I "am not a Christian you know 1 can't " be expected to enlur . into auob leel " ings.'' ..i'.: '. ... - i '- If Kuropo stood bv. calmly while Russia trampled Catholic l'oland in the dust, but must threaten and command to prevent Turkey from misusing tho Christiana of Diilgaria, the simple rea son is that Kuropc thought liussia too strong to be disciplined, and that Ku ropo thinks Turkey too weak to resist discipline . t .- The Turks evidently do not helievo themselves tn be in en deplorable a case; and it remains to be seen whether liussia is or ia not in a condition to ennvinco them that they are wrong. On this point it would be idle to spec ulate when the course of events must so soon bring the truth t tho light. That the institutions, founded by Ork han and developed under his successors, which enabled Turkey for three cen turies to play the greatest part in Ku ropcan history have been long losing their virtue, ia n commonplace of poli tics ; and there can be un question that from tho time of tho great sioge of Vi enna in 1583 by Kara Muslupba the Ottoman power has been both abso lutely and relatively on tho decline. But in the lirst years of tbe lust cen tury, when all tbo world thought it broken and decaying, itsuddenly hum bled the priilo ol tbo great Peter of Kussia, anil inflicted a mortal Mow upon tiie splendid Republic of Venice. When the Czar I'etur in 1710 made up his mind that it was entirely safe for him to press Turkey to the wall, by encouraging tbe designs of the disaf fected hospodur td Moldavia on the Danube, liussia was attracting the ut trillion ol tbe whole of Kuropu by her progressive Improvement and her visi bly increasing powci. I'eter, rluted by bis victory over Charles XII. of Sweden, the great military hero of the age, thought hlinselt absolutely sure of an easy triumph over Aehmet III., one ol the weakost ol Nulla. is, surrounded by a court of ministers notoriously worthless and corrupt, liussian agents hud found all the Christians ol Euro pean Turkey roudy and ripo aathey thought lor revolt, and when tho Sub limo l'orlo astonished him by declar ing war, tbo Czar led bis army forward in person to evade tbo Ottoman dn mininns with drums beating and ban ners flying as to a safe and splendid parade. lint a single cainpuign utter ly confounded his hopes and amused all Kuropo. The Christian subjects of tbe l'orlo shrank, as the Serbians in our Unio have so recently done, Irom confiding their destinies lo the tender mercies ol the Muscovite. The Ma hometans flew to arms as their descen dants now are doing; and in a won dcrlully short space of timo the North ern Knipernr, surrounded and brought tji bay, bad to elect between signing a disgracef ul treaty ol pcaeo or guiiiK to (Jonslaiiliiioplo not as a conqueror, but as a prisoner. Jn July, 1711, I'eter signed, on tho banks of the 1'riith, I treaty by which ho bad bound bimseit to destroy bis f'ortillcations at Kami disk, Samara and Taganrog, to sur render A lot lo the Hullan, to give up all his artillery, and to abandon the Cossacks and their affair, to the Sub lime I'orte. A very different issue, it is true, attended tbo war by which Abdul JIamid sixty years later was lurccd lo sign the treaty ol Kainanlji, and by which for the first time the Hessian Emiierors secured recognition ad the lawful protectors ol the ortho dox Greek Church within the domin iiaisol the Sultana. Hut without go ing through the history of the subse naenl relations between liussia and lirkey, it must bo remembered that ibe result! of tbs groat Crimean war of 1853 prore aa advantageous to Tur- ky U thjj wore bumihating. to Kus- CLEARFIELD, sia. To ho sure Europeans and Amer icans know tbat these results were ob tained by tho arms mainly of England and of France, and in pursuance ol the interests of Western Kuropo rather than of the Ottoman dominion. Hut this the Mabomotnn subjects of tho Sublimo Porto as a body neither know nor cun he ninde to believe. .No lon ger ago than in 1848, Sir J. (j. Wilkin son, traveling through Dulmatia and European Turkey, tells us ol tho culm conviction which Jio lound rooted in tho minds of the higher classes of the Turks, that the Ottoman Kmpiro still held the first pltico of power uud au thority in the world. One of tho lead ing men of Moslur, who had traveled in his time and knew both Constanti nople and Cairo, thought to pleaso bis English guest by assuring him that bo regarded the sovereign ol (5 rest Britain us "the truest vassal ol the Sullun. Ho know that tho French were estab lished in Algiers, but that was because tho l)oy of Algiers had misbehaved himself, and tho Sultan had ordered tho French to dispossess him. ''The Osmanlis," said this excellent man, "are tbe only people who enjoy tho " protection ol heaven, and il the r.u " ropcon powers were to rebel and a " thoir forces were collected together "they would not bo ablo to face tho " lurks lor un hour. 1 his, bo it re membered, was long after tho Syrian war had brought Mehemet All almost to tho gates ol Stumhnul. 'through out the grenter port of Turkey to-day tho story of the Crimean conflict lives simply as tho tradition ol a greut war in which tbo Sultan, aided by bis faithful European vassals, crushed tho power and chastised tho auducily ol tho Cr.ur Nicholas and his son. The present collision, in which to us Tur key seems, from tho first, so torribly overmatched, is anticipated in a sum Inr temper by tho Ottoman people, They will go into tho war convinced that both rigid ami might are on their side; and whatever the issue may eventually be, it will bo a great mm tuko to suppose that it can bo soon or easily or cheaply reached.

If wo want light, wo must conquer darkness. When 1 think of mathematics, I blush ut the recollection ol bow oiten I "caved in yeurs ago. J bore is no tru't more valuable than a determination to per severe when the rghl thing is to be accomplished. We are all inclined to give up too easily in trying or unpleas ant situations, and tho point I would establish with myself, il tbo choice were again within my grasp, would be never to relinquish my hold on a pos siblu success, if mortal strength or brains in my case, were adeauuto to the occasion. Hint was a capital les son which Professor Faraday tuught one ol his students iu the lecture-room, utter some cbemieul experiments. The lights hud been put out in tho ha and by accident somu article dropped on the lloor Irom the 1 rnlessors hand. The Professor lingered behind, endeav oring to pick it up. "Never mind," said the student, "it is of no conse quence to-night sir, whether wo find it or not." "That is true," replied the Professor; "but it is of grave conse quence to me as a Principle, that 1 am not f tiled in my dderminalion to find il." Perseverenco cun sometimes equal genius III its result, "iliero aro only two creatures," Bays tho Kastern pro verb, "who can surmount tho Pyra mids the eugle and the snail." If I wore a boy again, I would school myself into a habit of attention oltencr. 1 would let nothing come be tween mo und the subject in band. 1 w ould remember that an expert on the ice never tries tn skate in two direc tions ut once. Ono ol our great mis takes, while wo are young, is that wo tlu not attend strictly to what we aro about just then, at that particular mo ment. Wo do not bend our energies close enough to what we are doing or learning. We wander into a half in terest only, and so never acquire fully what is needful for us to become mas ter of. Tbe pruclice of becoming habit uully attentive is one easily obtained, if we begin early enough. 1 often hear grown up people say : "1 couldn't fix my attention on a 'eiinon, or book, all hough I wished lodo so." And the reason is, a habit of attention was never formed in youth. Let me tell you a sad instance ol a neglected power of concentration. A triced asked me to once lend him an interesting book, some thing that would enchain his attention ; lor ho said he was losing the power to read. Alter a lew Uoys ho brought back tho volume, saying it was no doubt a work of great value and beau ty ; but that tho will to enjoy it had gone from him forever, for other mat ters would intrude themselves on the page he was trying to understand and enjoy, and rows of figures constantly marshaled themsolvcs on the margin, adding themselves up lit tho bottom of the leaf. If I wore to live my life over again, 1 would pay more attention to the cul vutiou of memory. I would strength en thut luciilty by every possible means and on every possible occasion. It takes a Utile bard work ut first to re member things accurately ; but mem ory soon helps itself and gives very little trouble. It only needs early cul tivation to become a powor. Every body can acquire it. When I was a youth, a clttssuiuteof mino came to mo with a long face and told mo that ho was in danger of being supplanted in the regard of a young person ot the gentler sex by a smart lellow belong ing to another school who waa daily in the habit of calling on tho lady and repeating to her from memory whole poems ol considerable length. "What would you do 7" sighed tho lad lo mo. ")o?"-said 1. "I wonld bent him on his own ground and atonco commit to memory tho wbolo of 'Paradise Lost,' hook by book, and every time the In truder left Amelia's hnuso I would rash In and tiro away I Depend up on it," I said, "alio is quits taken by surprise with tho skillful memory of her new acquaintance ; and you must beat him with surpassing feats of the same quality." "Oh I but," aaid my friend, "1 have, as yon know, a very poor meino-y I" "The more reason now for cultivating that department ol your intellect," 1 rejoined. "If you give way to repining and do nothing, tbat fellow will anon be firmly seated in your place. I should not wonder II he were now at work on Thompson's 'Seasons,' for his infamous purpose. Delay no longer; but. attack Jonn Mil ton after supper to-night, and win the priae above all competition I'" Kick lei began In good earnest, and before tbo summer was ovor be bad memorited the wbole of "Paradise Ut," rehears ed it to Amelia, and gained tbe victu-ry.-J. 1. FifUt. PA., WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25, IIS77. A LESSON AH0UT DILIGENCE. There was onto a German Duke who disguised himself, and during the night plueed a greut stone, in tho mid dle ol the road, near his pulaeo. Next morning a sturdy peasant, named Hans, cuiuu that way with his lumbering oxcart. 'Oh theso lur.y people I" said he, "there is this big stone right in the middle of tho roud, and no ono will lake the troublu tn put it out of tbo way." Anil so Huns went on his way, scolding about tho laziness of the people; Next en me a guy stildier along. He had a bright plume fvuving Irom his helmet, and a sword dangling by his side, and went singing merrily on his way. His beau wita lield so far back that ho didn't notice the stone, so he slumblud over it., I'hij Hopped bis song, and he began lo storm ut the country people, and call them "boors and blockheads, for leaving a huge rock in tho road tor a I'ontleinnn to full over." Then ho went on. Next camo a company of merchants, with pack-horses and goods, on their way to the fair that was to bo held in the vilhgo near tbo Duke's palaco. When they came to the stone, the roud wns so narrow thut they had to go off in single fllo on cither sido. Uno ot lliem, named lierthold, cried out, "Did anybody ever see the like ol that big stone lying here ull the morning, ni nd no one stopping to take H away I It lay there lor three weeks; and nobody tried to ruiimve it. Then the Duke sent around wind lo ull tho peo ple on his lands, to moot ut a deep cut in the road, culled Dornthon, nenr where this stone lay, as ho had some-' thing to tell them. The day came, and a groat crowd gathered at tbe Dornlhou. Each side ot the cut was thronged with people overlooking tho road. Old Hans, the farmer, was there, and so was liert hold, the merchant. And now a winding horn was heard, and the people all strained their necks and eyes toward the castle, as a splen did cavalcade camo galloping npto the Dornthon. The Duko rode into the cut, got down from bis horse, and witb a pleasant smile begun to speak to the people thus : "My friends, it was 1 who put this stone here threu weeks ago. Every pussor-by bus loll it just where it wits, uud has scolded his neighbor for not taking it out ot tho way." V hen be had spoken these wolds ho stooped down and lilted up tho stone. Directly underneath it was a round hollow lined with white pebbles, and in tho hollow lay a smull leuther bag. Tbo Duko held it up thut ull the people might sco what was written on it. On a pieco of paper fastened to the bag wero these words: "For linn who lilts up the stone." lie untied tho bag. and turned it upsiuo down, and out loll a beautiful gold ring and twenty large, bright golduu coins. 1 hon everybody wished that ho had moved the sloitv. instead ot going around it and only Chiming bis neigh bors. They all lost tho prizo because they bail not learned tho lessons or tunned the habit ol helplulncss. And we shall lose many a priao, as wo go on in life, if wo don't form this habit.

THE SA GE OF MA ItSll FIELD. Mrs. Webster's reminiscences of tho homo lite of her husband, Daniel Web- slur, aro simply but freely given, and two anecdotes, not beloro published, illustrates his well known and singulur uhsence of mind. The first refers tu a lunch party. the custom was that tho pio dear lo the Eastern heart should bo divid ed according to tho number of those present. M r. n ubsler, on the occasion in question, having looked around the room, deliberately carried through the operation of "carving," and the pieces having been distributed, ho lound him self with un empty platter for his own hare, tie hud while counting tho guests succeeded in escaping bis own notice. When studying luw enses his liuhit was to leave his bonks open at the places where ho had been consulting precedent or authority, uud a young man who wus studying with him hud adopted the habit ol following Mr. H uhster through tho passages consult ed, in oritur to arrive at an idea ol the probable course of his argument. On one occasion be round in one of the books tho place marked by a 150 bill. Mr. Webster was notoriously forgetlul n money matters, and this wus taken us a sample ol his forgetfulnt'ss. When be returned to the room, his attention was directed to tbo bill. "I haven't missed any money," he said, ' so it cer tainly cannot be mine." The young man declared In parallel terms that it could nut be his. Mr. Webster per sisted in reliising il, on the plea that he could not appropriate anything that ho did not know to he his own. Tho student replied tbnt he wns precisely in tbo same position, lo solve the problem Mr. Webster turned to the manuscript of a fourth of July oration, which he had recently delivered, di rected tho student to use tbe $50 bill in having it printed, anil lo keep the proceed of the publication, which proved to bo a considerable amount. Uno ol tbe most interesting episodes of thoir mnrit'd life was the visit to Europo in 1H38-3J. Tho manner in which it cameabout was singular. Mr. Webster was worn by his continuous devotion to his public duties, but de clined to listen to the most strenuous urging to recruit bis health and strength by rest. Mrs. Webster there fore resorted to a very innocent strat agem to carry her point, After con sultation with her physician, sho man- gcd to ticrsnado that gentleman that her system and 'condition demanded bntige of air ano scene. 1 bo repre sentative of the faculty prescribed a trip to Europe. The ruse was perfect ly ucccssful, and ostensibly for the sake of his wife Mr. Webster waa car ried off to the old world to recruit and enjoy the lolaxation be had on bis own account declined. Tbe entire proceed ng waa entirely enaracterisllo ol Doth bband and wife. Ther accordingly sailed, carrying letter to many influ REPUBLICAN. ential persons in England, and among others to a cousin of the l)uko of Well ington. Tbey remained tinder Hint lady's care during tbe whole limo they were In J'.nglaml, and wore the recipi ents of boundless honor and regards. Mrs. Webster speak of Queen Victo ria In terms ol great admiration and affection. Olio occasion is particularly memor able. Having been invited by ber ma jesty lo dine, tho republican statesman und bis wile wero separated ny the Queon, who tuking tbo arm of each, seated them on cither side of her at tho table. Leaving England, they went to Franco, mot Louis Philippe and Queen Amelia at Paris, traveled over the country and penetrated into Switzer land. J ho prevalence ot an epidemic in Italy decided them to leave thut country unvisitcd. lleloro roturning home, north to Scotland, tboy traveled over a great part ol that romantic country, towards wbich Mrs. Webster still cboiisbes a vory warm feeling. Of the city of Edinburgh, particularly, her recollections aro most pleasant. Tho result of tbo prolonged tour was the complete re establishment of Mr. Webster's health, and great benefit to both. Mrs. Webstor is even now oo caaionully reminded of their European excursion by the arrival of strangers with letters of introduction to her from the friends mado nearly forty years ago. There wero no children by this sec end marriage, and tbo descendants of Ins daughter Julia and bis son Fletch er aro, with tho widow, tho only living representatives of "the ago of Mnrsh fleld." DEA Til OF JOSEPH C. FOSTER. THE IVENT1TL LIFE OF A.N OLD PLAY WHltlllT, ACTOR AND VIANAOEB. Mr. Joseph C.

Iu England he was as sociated with such men as tbo elder and younger Cburles Matthew, T. P. Cook, and Dncrow, tho famous circus manager. Ho managed tho pnvuto tboutriculo ol tho Duko of n ellington in which the great Duke's favorite role was Jimmy Starling in tho " Wreck Ashore." As a machinist, he made tbo original three dragon for "St. George and tbe Dragon." At tho Adelpbiu Theatre, London, ho produced the original incantations iu tho drama ol "Dor Freiscbutz," adapted from tho opera ol tbo same name. Ho appeared as a pantomimist ut tho Uuymuiket 1 healro. In 1832 bo came lo this country with Cook, of circus renown, mid ap peared at the Vuiixlittll Garden, corner ot the iiowery and iughlb street, rvew York, in "St George and the Dragon" and " Muzuppa." After a year be went to iiaitimoru wmi cook, where, in 1833, ho was burned out. With John liobiuson he then wont with a travel ing troupe from Cincinnati to New Orleans. Wbilo there he bought out Sum Stickncy. Charlie lingers, tho circus proprietor, and Frank Whitta- ker, now with P. T. Darnum, were in his company. Soon afterward he lost all bis money, and came back to Phila delphia, whuro ho produced his spec tacular pieces, the "Naiad Queen," and " Enchantress." Miss Charlotte Cush man, Peter and Caroline Itichings, and Wm. E. liurton acted in these plays. Altorwards Fostor was with General liul'ii Welch in tbo National Circus, where Continental Hotel, Philadelphia, now slunds. In 1848 he took tbe old Chestnut Street Theatre for a year. In 1850 ho went by tho old canal to Pills- burg, where ho received the nnmo of "Old Governor roster." lie built the New National Theatre in Pittsburg in 185G. lie spent a year in Cincinnati, and failed in tho panic of 1857, alter which ho traveled with a company through Pennsylvania and Ohio for two years, lie then went to New York, about 1MU1, and at tbo Bowery Theatre produced tho spectacle of "Tippoo Sahib." Ilero Tony Pastor appeared as the clown in his "Mon strous St. Michael." Tho Cromorno Garden was built, near the corner of Sixth aventio and Fourteenth street, under his supervision. Spalding and lingers' Circus ho then tilted out for South America. 11a was ono of tbe last mnnugers of tho old Chatham Street Theatre. He then filled out the Hernandez Pantomime Troupe in Bal timore and traveled with it two years. Alter managing: lor a time tho Chest nut Street Theatre at Philadelphia, he produced bis "Seven Dwarfs" at tho linwery Thcairo in 18G8. After tho building of tbo Grand Opera House, Eighth avenue und Twenty-third street, he produced there his spectaclo "The Twelve Temptation." This was fol lowed by " l.ulltt Hookh. Mr. Foster was a very busy man. Ho has been a musician, scene-painter, property-maker, modeler, costiiiner, pantomimist, actor, manager, and au thor. His lorto was tho preparation of spectacular dramas. He made large sums of money repeatedly, and as olten lost everything. Alter devoting bis life to Ins prolession ho died a poor man. His Inst sickness apoplexy- overtook him whilo ho was engaged in writing pliiys. lie had been married thrco times, and was tho father of seventeen children most of whom he brought up to his profession.

M UJILENBERO. A IAD ROMANCE WITH WHICH PRESIDENT RI'CIIANAN WA ALSO CONNECTED. Tbo fact of an interesting but sad roinunco connected with the early life of (lie Into Dr. Willium A. -Muhlenberg bus olten been hinted ut, but Its lull details bad never before been published until they appeared in the obituary notice of tho distinguished clergyman mid philanthropist as published in the iittneuster ( ra.) Jntcllnjeneer. 1 be en gagement of mnrriago between Presi dent James Duebanan then a young nj o. i.uiicustur unu tuo oeauii lul Miss Ann Coleman, ol that place, was terminated by the suicide of the hapless young lady, becuuso, it is suid, her parent objected to tba marriage. A similar ultuebmcnt existed between her sister, Miss Sarah II. Coleman, and Mr. Muhlenberg, lit that timo fifty ears ago ret lor of St. James' Church in Lancaster. Her father, Jiobert Cole man, a proud and wealthy citizen ot tbo town, also objected to this mar ringc, although ho had been mainly instrumental in culling the young rec tor to bis charge. II is course produced on unpleasant feeling in the Church and tho congregation divided into two parties, espousing tho cause of tho rector und tho huuglity father respect ively. Whilo pnriisunsbip was still running high, Miss Coleman died of consumption, ber parents said, but ot a broken heart, as believed by most people of the town. This sad event hut intensified the division in tbo Church, of whicb Mr. Coleman was a leading member, and on June 19, 182C, Mr. Muhlenberg communicated to the vestry his intention lo resign on account of reasons which il was unnecessary for him to stuto. A committee of five was appointed lo confer with bim witb a view to get bim to reconsider his de termination ; hut with thanks for their kindness he declined to do so in a more lengthy letter, in which he stated that bis course was taken alter due delibera tion and that it was not necessary for bim to enter into dcails regarding his motives ; be misted thut they were pure und such us he could think of with complacency "in referenco to tho great duy ot accounts. At the sumo meeting a comniuiiiea lion was received from Mr. Edward Coleman, brother of Miss Sarah Colo- man, tbe reading of which was defer red until a future meeting, (in Juno 20, lHliG, the vestry received the more peremptory resignation ot their rector, dated New York, June 20, and asking that it bo received at once. It was accepted, and tbo wardens were in structed to draft a reply, expressing tbe sorrow ol tho Church at bis resig nation. A iter wards at this same meet ing, tho letter of Edward Coleman, pre viously laid over, was read. It an nounced to the, vestry that "iu the event of all connection between tho Kev. Mr. Muhlenberg and St. James' Church being dissolved, abtotulely and forever, on or before July 1. and not thereafter, the su in of fj5,000 (which, but tor circumstances not necessary now to dwell upon, would bavo been left to the Church by our departed sister, Sa rah 11. Coleman,) will be placed in tho hands ot tho trustees lor tho benefit ol tbe Church by ber heirs and legal rep reresenlutivos." The offer was signed by Edward Coleman, for himself and tho other heir of bis deceased sister. A committee was appointod lo in iorm Mr. Coleman that such a dissolu tion of tho connection between Mr. Muhlenberg and the Church had taken place, and tho trustees of the Church wero ready to receive tbe money. Mr. James Hopkins protested against the appointment ot such a oommitteo, and beloro tbo resolution to answer Cole man's letter passed ho withdrew from tbo meeting. At a vestry meeting, held June 311, n memorial was present ed, signed by Surah Yeates, Margaret Yeates, and Cutharine Yeates. request ing tho vestry to pass a resolution tbat Mr. Muhlenberg should always bu in vited to preach in St. Jumes' pulpit whenever it was unoccupied. They said in their letter that they had not had time to procure other signers, but tbey had no doubt this was tho wish of a majority of the congregation. To Ibis tbe vestry resolved to respectfully answer that Mr. Muhlenberg would always havo tbo courtesy shown him that other Trotestnnt hpiscopal clergy men received, but tbey did not think it necessary to puss such an unusual motion. Against such treatment ol Mrs. and tbo Misses Yeates Mr. Hop kins again protested, ns tlisrespccllul to the mcmoralisls and discourteous to Mr. Muhlenberg. So tho mutter seems to have rested ; but, although Mr. Muhlenberg often aflerwaid preached in the Church, be always stood in tbe chancel and never again occupied tbo pulpit. The 5,000 gill wus accepted and paid, the com mittee appointed to cooler with Mr. Coleman reporting that in tho prosecu tion of their Inborn tboy hud encoun tered grave difficulties, "busy-bodies and tiile-benrera had infused an acri mony into the iinlbrtuiiale business which otherwise it would not have partaken of." . Thecommitteo bad en deavored to assuugo this and hoped that its asperities would be softened, but they bad only measurably suc ceeded, and a condition ot strile pre vailed which was much to bo deplored. With Dr. Muhlenberg's death the lust of the actors in this hapless drama has passed away. GOOD DAI It Y REPORT.

It is rather curious tbat all of these discoveries should have created so lively an interest every where except among the liilk w hom wo might think most deeply concerned in tbo capture and bringing lo Justice of tho murderers.

How many strangers Bender and his wife and hi daughter Kate had induced to partake of their hospitality and then done to death must ever re main a secret.
