Corner PROCEEDINGS. —A considerable
number of criminal cases occupied the at
tention of Court in the early part of the i
week. Among the cases tried was that of
the Commonwealth vs. John Bullekin,
an intelligent looking boy of twelve years
old, who was indicted for setting fire to
the barn of Airs. MeClellan, near Belleville,
during the past summer. The principal
evidence v. as the boy's own confession
made some weeks after the thoughtless
act had been committed, but nothing was j
felictted from she witnesses to show that j
there was any malice in it, which the law
absolutely requires to make it a eapital of
fence. Ilie witnesses generally testified
in favor of the boy's previous good char
acter. Judge WILSON charged the Jury
with a brief but lucid explanation of the j
law respecting such cases—after which 1

DEATHS FROM CHLOROFORM.—A recent
number of the Medical Times says :
' An accident of a very melancholy na
ture has just occurred in Glasgow. Dr.
Adams, resident physician to the ('lyde
street Hospital, having occasion to use
Chloroform, inhaled it himself to try its I
strength but without any serious conse
quence ; repeating, however, this experi
ment, and incautiously increasing thedose,
the effect was fatal : he fell hack and im- ;
The L'Fnion Medieale of Sept. Bth,

Labrime, a healthy married woman, resid
ing at Langres, in France, died from the
effects of chloroform vapor. She wished
to have a tooth extracted, and prior to
the operation inhaled the vapor, which
was given to her at her own desire. Com
plete insensibility was not produced at the
first trial; more chloroform was placed on
the handkerchief, and she drew a full in
spiration. Her countenance immediately
became pallid; her features were visibly
altered ; there was a dilatation of the pu
pils, with a convulsive rolling of the eyes,
and no pulse could be felt. Every attempt
was made to restore life, hut without suc
cess. She died as if struck by lightning.'
KELT.IV ixo HIS DESERTS. —The Dam ille
(Ya.) Register, of the 26th ult., publishes
the following :
A man named Bowen, residing in the
neighborhood of Berger'* store, in this
county, was killed, a few days ago, in an
attempt to resist with fire-arms the officers
of the law, who had been directed to take
him in custody, for the commission of a
high misdemeanor. Bowen attempted to
kill his wife by shooting at her with a ri
de, through a window, at the residence of
in father-in-law. Judge Taliaferro, is
suc-d orders tor the immediate arrest of the
oud iw ; and the Sheriff summoned sever
al persons to assist him in executing the
Judge a orders. Bowen confronted them
in the yard with rifle and revolvers, the

them, he levelled at one of the party, who
dropped from his horse at the instant, and
thereby saved himself, as the ball aimed
for him barely grazed the top of the horse's
head. Bowen then advanced on the
crowd with a revolver, when, finding they

M IDDLETOV. N, Sept. gtith, 1849.
MY DEAR Sin: Very cordially 1 thank you
tor joor triendly attention in the transmission
oft he Pittsburgh Mercury, wherein soaie no
tice is taken of Pennsylvania interests, con
nected with my name, while a member of the
U S. Senate.
1 avail myself of the occasion to express the
hope, that " as the signs of the times" portend
a disscussion of the tariff, during the approach
ing session of Congress, there may be no ex
citement, no party prejudices, or other false
issues raised to influence the legislative mind
of (he country towards the adoption of mea
sures adverse to the general interest.
'i'he tariff policy is of momentous importance
to all the great industrial pursuits of our coun
try. The public good is the rule by which
we should be guided in the performance of re
lative duties ; and to this central point the le
gislature should invariably direct all its deli
berations. At an early day, 1 took lessons in
the school cf Simon Snyder on this very ques
tion of protection to the infant manufactures
of the Union ; and time has bad no elfect to
change my views and wishes, which have been
expressed in the Senate, in favor of Ihe per
manent establishment of a home market, as the
only solid basis of national prosperity: And
here I may add, it is very remarkable that all
the Democratic governors of this Common
wealth, down to Governor Shunk. have main
tained ground in favor of protection to home
labor. IS"ine consecutive messages of Governor
Snyder are text books to sustain and cheer the
sound portion of our Democratic friends, who
will not surrender to the free trade doctrir.es
of British capitalists.
" We must command our own consumption
and the means ol our defence," has been the
sentiment of* Pennsylvania from the dawn of
independence. And as a freeman, born upon
the soil, f may be permitted to regard, with no
ordinary solicitude, the onward prosperity of
the iron, coal and agricultural interests of this
'Phe new settlements being opened up in the
far West, embracing the Territories of Texas,
California and Oregon, must ot necessity in
crease the surplus produce of the soil. (Jprn
foreign countries our farmers can never depend
with certainty for a permanent profitable mar
ket. It i 8 therefore the safest and wisest poli
cy to create a home market for the farmer, by
encouraging domestic manufactures, under
such revenue laws as shall secure to the Amer
ican mechanic the rewards ofhis labor in his
own market. Let Die panper lab- of V "•<>
continue but a few years to tl->o< ... country
with the productions of foreign workshops, and
if the past history cf the world furnish tacts by
which we may be guided in our deliberations
on tins subject, then I venture to predict (hat
all the leading interests of Pennsylvania and of
the Union—the iron, the coal, the salt, the
wool, the flax, the hemp, the paper, the hat,
ti.e sugar, and the gunpowder manufactures,
whh others to tedious too mention, will be en
tirely ruined through the length and breadth
of the land.
The doctrine of" let trade regulate itself,"
is beautifully illustrated, it it were net de
structive in its effects, by the present condi
tion of the couutry importing immense quan
tities of British iron, although we have at home,
the raw material in abundance, industrious
and skilful mechanics, and ample capital to
oommand our own consumption in this re
spect. With these tacts staring us in the face,
is it any thing short of an insane policy to
preach up free trade to benefit the overgrown
money changers of Great Britain, thereby
working injury to American labor. I feel a
lively sensibility on this subject, and whether
1 am in error or not, 1 freely state to you, that
I look upon the permanent and prosperous es
tablishment of free labor, in this country, as the
most effectual means, in the mysterious opera
tions of political events, to subvert the thrones
of heirarchies and despots upon the continent of
Europe, and to elevate the masses of equai
rights and rational liberty, the destiny of man
These views incline me to hope, that every
man who is anxious for the welfare of our good
old Commonwealth and for the integrity of the
union, will stand up for protection of Ameri
can industry, on grounds of patriotism. We
must he wholly independent of foreign sup
plies; American labor must not be sacrificed
to feed the squalid operatives of Great Britain.
Accept assurances of my sincere regards.
Your friend, &c. SIMON CAMERON.

COLLISION ON THF. COI.FMBIA RAILROAD.—
About 4 o'clock on Thursday afternoon, a seri
ous accident, attended with a loss of life, and
a considerable destruction of valuable property,
occurred on the Columbia Railroad, between
Rarkesburi; and Coatesvilfe. The locomotive,
"Clarion," with a freight train, going upwards,
was approaching the station near the latter
place to take in water, when the coupling of
part of the train broke. Twenty cars, all heavy
laden, were thus liberated, and there being a
heavy downward grade, they ran down by their
own gravity with immense speed. They went
on as far as the Coatcsville bridge, where they
came in collision with another train which had
left Parkesburgsome fifteen minutes previously.
Such was the force of the shock, that sonic
twelve cars were demolished and three others
were driven completely over the bridge.
Two men, in the employ of the State, were
at work repairing the road near the spot, and
not seeing the cars coming on the north track,
were struck by them. One of them, named
Lynn, was instantly killed, his head being sev
ered from bis body. The other man, named
Patton, was seriously hurt, and u not expected
to survive. It is stated that the meri in charge
of the cars which broke loose, had left the train
and gone into the hotel at that stopping place.
They were employed by the transporters, and
! their conduct is highly censured. Had even
one of them been on the train, he might have
used the break, and thus prevented the disaster.
FALL OF \ CHURCH SPIKE. —The tall
.spire of" the Second Presbyterian CJiureh
in Wheeling, fell with a tremendous crash
on Friday evening of last week, striking a
German workman who was standing near
the building, mangling his body in a fright
ful mariner. The spire had been only re
j een'tly finished, anil the scaffolding re
moved but a short time before the accident

UV THE HI BERN IA.
The steamer Hiberiiia, after a very
rough passage, arrived at Halifax on the ,
2d instant, bringing one week later news |
from Europe :
TURKEY AND RUSSlA.* —There is no la
ter news in the European Times, the only j
paper whieh has come to hand, from ei
ther ('onstantinople or St. Petersburgh, ,
and of course we have got no solution ol
the difficulty between the Porte and the
Austrian (General. The belief, however,
among well informed circles, is said to be
that Russia will pocket the affront rather j
than provoke a collision w itli H ranee and
! England. There is a rumor from Paris
that in consequence ol the relation in
which Louis Napoleon stands with the :
Czar, he would gladly forego the support
of the nation in behalf of Turkey .
A correspondent writing from Belgrade,
on the Ist nit., states that the Hungarian
Refugees were still at \\ idden ready to
i set out for the destinations they may se
lect. Thev were divided into three corps,
an Italian, a Hungarian and a Polish one;
'each cantp is under the order of a Col
: onel, and each man receives such daily
rations, according to his grade, as British
troops. Eriuee Alexander of Servia had
behaved very well towards them—allow
ing them free passage through his territo
r\ and provinces. Bern. Dembenski and
several others have not only embraced Is- '

EKAM E. —The deliberations of the Na
tional Assembly were almost wholly de
voted on the l'ith and 13th ult., to the re- ■
port of M. Thiers on the Russia question.
The report is decidedly conservative and
at variance with the express views of the
President's letter to \I. Thiers. The
conclusions which M. Thiers arrived at
are that liberal constitutions are incompat
ible with the Pope's independence as tem
poral sovereign, and that the independent
Church and the rights of people are at is
sue. The latter, he thinks ought to give
AUSTRIA AND HUNGARY.—A treaty be
tween Austria and Prussia, was signed at
Vienna on the 10th ult. It provides that
Austria and Prussia assume the adminis
tration of the central power of the German 1
Confederation in the name of all the Gov- j
ernments in the Confederation until the
first of Mav next \ ear.
Havnau in his administration as Milita
ry Governor of Hungary loses noopportu- |
nitv to pursue the bloody course peculiar
to him. He had murdered, under the
guise of Court martial, thirteen Hungarian
Generals, who laid down their arms at the j
close of the war. Count Bathiny, late
Prime Minister of Hungary, has also been ;
shot. He had been sentenced to be hung, i
I but leaving cut his throat with a dagger ]
sent him bv his wife, it was impossible to
strangle him, and he fell pierced by bullets
1 from a lilc of Austrian soldiers.
Several hundred Hungarian officers,
furnished with passports, from Comoro,
have passed through Berlin on their wu\
'to the M ost. Some are going to America,
i kiapka is said to he among them, and to
have embraced the resolution of crossing
the Atlantic, with 300 others.
Hungary is to be divided henceforth in
to ten districts, each to have its own Pro- >
vincial Assemble, yet the deputies are to
be chosen by a majority of votes of the
ROME. —The accounts from Rome are
still unsatisfactorv. The return of the
Pope is still talked about, but when he
will return i- still a subject of conjecture.
There has been a misunderstanding be- i
i tween one of the Cardinals and M. I)e !
Corcellas, the Frenchman being offended
at a letter he received from the Ecclesiastic,
in whieh he complained of the number of j
traitors tolerated in the Eternal city. The
point was referred to his Holiness, who
disapproved of the (Cardinal's conduct, and
threw him overboard.
The brave Garribaldi has left the Island
of Santa Madalina for Gihrnlter, where he
will sail for London and ultimately to the
IKKI.AND. —The Anti-Rent conspiracy s
of Ireland are extending throughout all
parts of the land. The local journals are
filled with accounts of arrests for abduc
tion of crops. No doubt that in the South
ern and in part of the Northern provinces
there is a general determination on the
part of the peasantry to defraud the land
lords of the rents to such an extent, as
would seem calculated without much doubt
t< consummate the ruin of the country.
The fearful effects of the potato blight, fe
ver, cholera, and other diseases, by which
Ireland has been distracted, seems likely
to be far exceeded by calamitous results ;
; of the moral pestilence that is spreading
throughout the land. A eonlliet attended
with fatal results took place on the Kith
at Kitterhy in Kind's county, when three
policemen were killed and several others
('IKCASSIA. —'The fall of the fortress of.
Aohulga, the residence of Schamil, the
celebrated chief, after a desperate and pro
| tracted resistance, is announced in letters
from St. Petersburg!!. On the 29th of
August the assault was renewed, after
; three days' useless negotiation, every inch
of ground being fiercely contested by the
■ besieged, who fought with obstinate bra
! very. The defences were covered with
heaps of dead bodies. The loss of the
Circassians was estimated by the Rus- ,
sians at 1000 men killed, exclusive of
those wounded, and 000 made prisoners.
I Sehamyl was not to he found ; lie had
, contrived to escape with one of his sons
; and one of his mistresses. Another of
his sons and his lawful wife were slain,
and a third son was taken prisoner.—
Sehamvl himself was wounded in the arm
"by a musket ball. The siege of Achulga,
thus successfully terminated, had lasted
eleven months, during which period the
Russians lost 22 officers and 422 men, ex
clusive ol those wounded.
ARRIVAL OR THE WASHINGTON.
Bv the steamer Washington, at New
York, we have received London and
Southampton papers of the 20th ult., as
likewise the Paris and Havre journals of
18th and 19th—none of which were
brought by the Hihernia, in consequence ol
the early hour of her sailing from Liver
The Havre cotton market was very ac
tive, and a considerable and steady rise
had taken place, in sympathy with the ad
vices from Liverpool.
Advices from Paris mention that the
dissension which had existed between the
President of the Republic and the majority
of the National Assembly on the Roman
question had passed aw ay lor the present,
and it was believed some middle course
would be adopted, whereby the Ministeri
al crisis, for some da\ s so imminent would
Fresh executions of Hungarian patriots
had taken place and were to take place in
Arad and in Pesth by sentence of Austrian
Courts Martial. One of the first notables
of Hungary, the octogenarian Beotliy, was
condemned to death. The brutal retalia
tions of the Austrian Government has filled
ail Europe w itli horror and disgust.
At Constantinople, the Turks were ac
tivi h preparing tor war, and hostilities be
tween the Porte and Russia were deemed
to be unavoidable. The British Ambassa
dor had received despatches, stating that
the English fleet was on us way to the
Dardanelles, and the French Mediterranean
squadron was also under orders to rendez
vous at the entrance of the Dardenelles.
The Turkish army in Constantinople and
i's environs, 120,000 strong, was daily
drilled and manumvred.
FRANCE. —In spite ofM. Mole and M.
Toiers, who have become the directors of
the Legitimatist party, the President of the
Republic and the majority of his Council
have ranged themselves on the Eastern
question, on the side of civilization, and
against the sanguinary pretensions of the
Czar. Thus as we have announced, the
Mediterranean fleet has received orders to
repair to Smyrna, where it will join that of
\dmiral Parker, to act in concert, in case
of need, according to ulterior instructions,
and advice has been sent to the French
Ambassador at Constantinople of the order
that has been given. The Republic has
now 1 i sail of the line armed at Toulon,
and three frigates. All these vessels do
not form part of the Mediterranean fleet,
but they could join it before their services
would be required.
The steam fleet in the Mediterranean is
not less respectable, being composed of 12
frigates ; and if it should become necessary
to embark a force of 25,000 men, the
means of transport would not be wanting.
\\ e do not believe that Russia would at
tempt the risk of war with Turkey, allied
to France and Great Britain, but that is
for us onlv an additional reason for approv -
ing of a demonstration which will consoli
date Hurop an peace, by showing those
whose ambition would lead tin in to disturb
it, with whom they would have to deal.
Hi etiAKisT. Oct. I.—The Turkish and
Russian armies have lifted up their tents,
which were pitched out of the town, and
have taken their quarters in the tow n it
self, adding about 20,000 people to its pop
ulation. The Turks are quartered in
large khans on the right bank of the l)em
boritza, a small river which runs pictur
esque through Bueharist, and the Russians
on the left bank. The town affords a cu
rious sight lor an observer. Russian and
Turkish uniforms are constantly seen
crowding the streets.
St. Louis, Nov. (5.
A revolting ease of rape and murder took
place the other day, near Palmvra. A ne
gro belonging to Mr. Glasscock, commit
ted violence on Miss Bright, an interesting
little girl, 14 years of age, and then mur
dered her. For fear of being detected,
the inhuman monster turned round and
killed her brother, aged I 1 years. The
wretch has been arrested, and trill be
burned alive on Friday.
Young Barnum, who was shot in St.
Louis by the French brothers Montesquieu,
is much better, and hopes are entertained
of his recovery.
QUINCY, (111.) Nov. fi.
Last night about fifty negroes, of all
ages and sexes, with teams, stampeded
from the Missouri side of the river. The
slaves were owned lv Miss Miller, Mr.
M<-Kim and Mr. MeC uteheou, of Sugar
Creek, and Mr. Fllis of Monticillo, Lewis
county. The slaves were overhauled on
Saturday morning, and after a desperate
resistance and the loss of their leader, they
were captured. The slave who was killed
belonged to Miss Miller.
CONSTRUCTIVE MILEAGE. —It appears
that Mr. Comptroller Whittlesey has just
put his veto upon the account rendered by-
Mr. Dickens, the Secretary of the Senate,
of about $(0,000, which lie paid to the
members of the Senate, as constructive
mileage : that is, he paid all of them, but
three who had scruples in the matter, the
mileage, for going home on the 4th of
March last, and returning the same day.
It is stated that Mr. Whittlesey submitted
the matter to the President, who promptly
requested him to do what he helieved to
he right , and let the consequences take
care of themselves! Mr. Dickens will,
therefore, have to ask < 'ongress to make up
the expended sum. The paid Senators
will hardly refund any part of the SIO,OOO
they have received, according to precedence,
though not according to law and justice.
Be kind to thy father—for when thou wer

Thy father is passing away.
Be kind to thy mother—for lo on her brow

As long as God giveth her breath,
With accents of kindness, then cheer her lone

If the smile of thy love he withdrawn ;
The flowers of feeling will fade at their birth,
If the dew of affection be gone ;

The love of a brother shall he
An ornament purer and richer by far
Than pearls from the depth of the sea.
Be kind to thy sister—not many may know
The depth of true sisterly love,
The wealth of the ocean lies fathoms below
The surface that sparkles above.
Thy kinduess shall bring to thee many sweet
And blessings thy pathway to crown,
Affection shall weave thee a garland of flowers,
More precious than wealth or renown.
I'roc!uination for Thaaksgiiing.
A beneficent God has blessed the people of
thii Commonwealth with health and abundance.
The fields have yielded bountiful returns to the
labors of the husbandman. The enterprises of
the citizens, in all branches of industry, have
been appropriately rewarded. Peace with all
nations has been vouchsafed to the country.
Civil and religious liberty, under the institu
tions of free government, bare been preserved
inviolate, and the largest measure of earthly
happiness has been graciously dispensed by an
all-wise and merciful Providence.
These blessings demand our gratitude to Him
in whose hands arc the issues of life—who con
trols and directs the affairs of men—whose will
is Omnipotent lo save or destroy, and who min
gles in the justice of His Judgments the attri
butes of llis mercy—before whose power na
tions are exalted or east down—and they call
upon us, as one people, to unite in solemn
Thanksgiving—in humble supplication and praise
to the Almighty Author of every good and per
fect gift, for these His undeserved blessings to
his weak and sinful creatures. They require
the profound reverence of penitent hearts, sen
sible of the unworthiness of humanity, and of
the enduring mercy of a righteous God.
Believing these solemn truths; deeply im
pressed with the duty of devout adoration and
humble prayer ; in compliance with a venerated
custom, and the desires of the great body of the
people : I, WILLIAM F. JOHNSTON, Governor of
the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, do herehy
appoint and designate 77/ C RSI hi E, the 29// i

giving throughout the State : and I hereby re
commend and earnestly invite all the good peo
ple of this Commonwealth to a sincere and pray
erful observance of the same.
Given under my hand and the great seal of !

The quantity of impure humors discharged from the
body by the action of the lirandreth's Pills, is replaced in 1
the course of a few hours with new and pure blood, by
the digestion of a moderate meal. By purging the body
with this medicine the whole mass of blood becomes en
tirely purified and regenerated.
I hat the blood is the life of the body, I presume is un
disputed, therefore I shall say that it being the SEAT or
I. IKK, it must also be the seat of disease. If disease be in
the blood, we should abstract the disease only, not the
blood It is the impurities which must be removed by
purgation to secure our health, in all states of the w earner,
in all situations, and in all climates. The blood, like a
good spirit, is always trying to benefit the body by its
struggles to expel impurities But it is not capable to ef
fect its own purification at all times: to do this it must
often have assistance. When the blood is loaded with im
purities, especially in this climate, the consequences may
be fatal, provided ihe blood is not purified at once, and
this is sure to be effected if Brandreth's Pills are used.

j The Wheeling Gazette says, another counter
feit of the one dollar bills on the Ripley Branch
of the State Bank of Ohio, exceedingly well ex
i eeuted, is in circulation. The red impiession
on the back is genuine ; and the best, if not the
only, distinguishing mark is, that in the coun
terfeit the star or areola at the end of the bar
enclosing the words " State Bank of Ohio," is
set in the centre of a square block, which is not
the case in the genuine.
