For some li'.ne past our tov n lies been dis
graced by a scries of drunken brawls, perhaps
without 11 parallel in its history, which have
at last ended in the brutal beating todeathof a
man named JOHN WRIGHT. Peace loving cit
izens have long looked fur such a result, from
the leniency with which those most interested
suffered a set of vagabonds to do as they p'eae
. Ed without resorting to the law for redress.
• As brawl and riot progressed, hopes were still
entertained iliat the sworn officers ot justice
would awake to their duty, but all in vain, and
it was reserved for the crowning act of these
j scandalous proceedings to be enacted before the
! eves of indges and grand jurcrs, attorneys,
magistrates, and constables, without so much
as an effort to arrest the party committing it !
; Even when the unfortunate man so cruelly
beaten was lying in the throes of death, Win.
Eisenbise was actually engaged in another
fight, and though die crowd around was again
i and again solicited by his own father to lake
I him to jail, it was not done.
1 The question may well be asked, by those
who love peace and order, to what stute of
tilings are we hastening, when the laws are
thus violated with impunity and our streets
made a menagerie of rowdies from the boy of
ten years to the in 1 grown man! Must we in
I truth, like a band of savages, go armed with
pistol and dagger when walking our streets,
from a fear that some drunken rufiian will as
sail either life or property, or shall we live as a
j civilized community, protected by laws enforced
| against the strong as well as the weak! It is
i time, full time, that the-e questions sli uld be
: decided, and it is also time to know whether
there are not officers whose duty it is to queii
disturbances, or if they know of violations of
the peace at public houses, to report them to
the higher authorities. If there are nonesuch,
tiiere certainly should be, and the sooner provi
sion is made for their appointment the better.
An occasional brawl will take place in almost
any community, and may be overlooked, but
for months past there has been more rioting and
j fighting in Eevvistown than there ought to be in
i any town of its size.
J THE AFFP.IT. —The cireum?t.ince; attending
the death of J its' WEIGHT, as near as we can
gather them, are as follows: On Tuesday af
ternoon some altercation took place between
William Eisenbise and John \V right, which at
the time resulted in nothing serious. F.isen
bise (who was considerably intoxicated) how
ever followed up Wright, although the latter
is said to have repeatedly tcld the former that
lie was no match for hnu in fighting, until they •
reached the alley near Freeburn's smith-shop.
Eisenbise there caucrht Wright by the arm and
struck at him. but did not hit him—the blow
, having made, as we are informed, an indenta
tion in a board fence which many supp .;e could
not have been made by the knuckles of Eisen- (
bise alor.e, although one of the strongest men !
in the county. Eisenbise then threw Wright
over his head, jumped on him, and struck t.im
1 three or four blows on the head, when he was
taken off. it was at once perceived that Wright
was dangerously injured, and he was imrnedi-
I ately conveyed to Major Eisenbise's hotel, and
: medical assistance called in. His wounds w ere
| dressed, and although for a short time he ex
hibited favorable symptoms, he expired on
A post mortem examination was made by
Drs. Ard, Worrall, T. \V T. Howard \ anvui
zah, and others, which proved that the brain
was injured by a fracture of the skull.
Wright, we have been told, was not consid
ered a very quarrelsome man, and during the
lifetime of his wife, who died a year or two
since, is said to have conducted himself with
much propriety. He leavr 5 four children —the
eldest a daughtei about 16 years oM —one of
whom is now at Hollidjyshurg, and the others
j Shortly after this brutal assault v. as made, a
man named John Long, while looking at the
bruised and battered head of Wright, observed
that hi mould like to hi the man irho could Ir.y him
out in that van, or something to that effect,
when William Eisenbise at once declared that
he could do it, and the result was another fight.
Long however proved a rough customer, and
gave his opponent a pair of black eyes, togethi r
; with sundry marks about his face that weeks
will not obliterate. Eisenbise remained about
town until within a few minutes of the death of
Wright, without any attempt being made to ar
re-t him, when he crossed the Lcwistown and
Tuscarora Bridge and made for the mountains.
, He was seen by several persons at Bixlcr's Gap
j during that day, and is represented as being al
most unable to see ar.d to be otherwise so much
bruised as to be unfit for travelling. His friends,
it is supposed, have siace then provided him
with a retreat in the hills, or aided his escape,
nothing further having been heard of Lis where
abouts up to the time of our going to pre-s. A
reward of f>oo 13 offered for his arrest and con
finement in any jail in this commonwealth.

their sycophant-, he hat- the more! courage to

the tenacity that "drowning men hold en to

would rather attribute their appointment to

of the President, to run counter to the popular
Resolved, That WILLIAM F. JOHNSTON has

taxation) is not to be squandered with impuni

who have grown w fat on State pap as to be

could not well get over it, and Dunmire per

17 votes on the first ballot, lacking but two of

FATHER MATHEW continues his temperance
labors in Boston. In two days, last week, he
administered the pledge to between fur and

The Post says that while administering the
pledge to a groupe of his countrymen, among
whom were two or three 'hard-looking sub

'Keep clear,' said be,'of intoxicating drink
and you will soon be in better plight. Save
your money, and go West, w here land is cheap

DEATH CP A PIONEER.—The Cincinnati
Chronicle announces the death, in Gaiiatin,
Ky., of Captain Jacob White, one of the very
earliest settlers of the Miami Valley, in the
O-'U year of his age. While a boy he left
N' w Jersey, with his father's family, for the
Redstone settlement, on the western frontier
of Pennsylvania, and was at that place when
the Declaration of Independence was adopted
and published. He nnngled fiecly in the
frontier conflicts of the revolutionary war. and
the Chronicle says of his subsequent career:
He was one of the smail party that planted
themscives at the mouth of tiie Little Miami,
and commenced the village of Columbia, in
the la 1 i ol 17—\ which was the first settlement
made within the limits of Judge Sy mines' pur
chase. Being a bold, fearless adventurer, lie
left the settlement, erected a block-house on
his land, seven or eight miles in the wilder
ness, to which he removed his family and be
gan an improvement, soon after the commence
ment of the Indian war which was terminated
by the treaty of Greenville, in 1793. During
the war, his block-house was attacked bv a
strong party of Indians, who were repulsed,
and compelled to retreat. In the morning the
body uf one of the Indians was found dead on
the ground, so near to the block-house, that
his companions were unwilling to incur the
risk of an attempt to carry him off.

From the Colonization Herald.
REV. WILLIAM M. HALL.
It is with much concern that we are obliged
to announce the resignation ot Mr. llai! as
Agent of the Pennsylvania Colonization Soci
ety. His business engagements have been so
much interrupted by infirm health as to pre
vent his sustaining any longer those relations
with the Society, from which both he anil j
anticipated the most satisfactory results. We
subjoin the resolutions passed "by the Board of
Managers on the occasion of his r :signalion.
R/ solved, That ns the Rev. Mr. Hall has
rendered his resignation as Agent of tiie Board,
his resignation be accepted, but at the same
time the Board deeply regret that the state of
.Mr. Hail's health and the immediately urgent
neci.-sity of the Society, compel us to part with
a gentleman in whose zeal, fidelity, and intel
ligence. they have the highest confidence.
Resolved, That the Board collectively and
individually, tender to Mr. Hall their senti
ments of cordial esteem, and their most hearty
w.thcs for his health and happiness.
Mr. Hail, with the consent of the Board, had
intended tn act for awhile on behalf of the So
ciety in some of the counties in the central
part ot the state; but we grieve In sav, that an
affection of his eyes arrests him even in this
more limited circle of action.
