Horrible Murder iu Boston,
The principal cause of excitement now exist-
; M! r in (he cities is the sudden disappearance of
j)r. (Jno. Putsv \x, a wealthy citizen of Boston.
Su-t''.'i"i' having been excited against Professor
'A titsTF.u. of Howard I'niversity, a search was
made and parts of a body supposed to be that
of lb . Pat tinao, were found in Prof. Webster's
room ii'td' i the- closet floor. The remains of
bones, mineral teeth, gold filling, &c., were
found in the grate of his room.
It is allege.! tltat the Professor had been in his
room f r - lavs a fit t the disappearance of
Parkmao, 't it 1 > : J doors—had fires in unu
-.! —a r d many other circumstances are
produced to ti\ guilt upon him. Appearances
are certainly against the prisoner, doubtless
lit kittened by popular excitement, and hence it
is difficult to arrive at a just conclusion, ile
may be guilty, and at the same time may be the
victim of a vile conspiracy.
Corrsspordeuce of tfie Lewistown Gazette.
\ iiK, Pa., November IK), 1819.
Mr. Editor —Being at leisure, I concluded
tait 1 couid in no wise bettor while away an
/ hour than in penning a short correspondence
for your journal, and a!tlinu_h I hate no "tre
mendous explosion," "horrible tragedy," or
-highly important intelligenco" to communi
cate, yet I flutter myself my " production" wiT
contain sufficient of interest to exculpate it
from the charge of being an intruder.
On Tuesday rno-ning last I bade the " good
iy denizens" tit Lewistown farewell, and took
my departure in the elegantly finished cars of
the Central llailroad. At 1 o'clock I reached
Harrisburg, and being obliged to remain there
until next day, 1 passed the time in perigrina
ttngr fhe principal tho-ouglifures, visiting print
ing offices, passing through the various public
buildings, and viewing numerous other objects
of interest to be found in that capital town.
Ilarrisburg is a well laid-out and finely built
town, containing a large number of elegantly
finished buildings; yet the place seems to be
improving but slowly. In tact to my optics
Harrisburg is as Harrisburg WAS.
On Wednesday morning I took the stage and
Started for this place; and although the weathf r
was cold our trip was rendered quiie agreeable
by having for a fellow passenger a " live Yan
kee," who kept up such a continuous strain of
lively conversation as successfully dispelled ail
thoughts of the weather. He was somewhat
of an eccentric character—a boiling abolition
ist —and, as he avowed, a universal liberty
man. And hlB notions of liberty were rather
c uiprehensive, as he advocated a universal re
farm in the whole social, poiliticai and religious
condition of the world!
York is one of the largest and most beaut i
fu inland towns in the State, cvntaininga
population ot about eight thousand, and for bu
siness enterprise and rapidity of growth, has
no equal in this part of the State. New streets
are Continually being laid out and rapidly built
up, old houses are torn down and handsome
ii.ree and four story brick buildings erected,
and the whole place presents a stirring busi
ness i ike aspect that reminds one more of our
than an inland town. Among the
uundsome edifices are the Court House,
tie churches, and several hotels. The Odd
Y-: owe Hall, now in course of erection, bid*
:i.r to become the principal structure in the
pace. It is a large four storv brick building,
" niing on South George street, and occupy
g perhaps as much space as the capitoi at
Harrisburg. Preparations too are making to
supply the town with gas—but a few weeks
:emg required to complete the fixtures.
I tie reservoir being found inadequate to
supply the town with water, the enterprising
Water Company have determined upon con
structing wrrxs simi'ar to Fairmount Water-
Works on the Schuylkill, to throw water from
'.'-jdurus creek, in order to sjpply the increas
ing uernand. Thus, you see, York is rapidly
becoming a City ; arid for my part I would not
be surprised if in twenty years hence, it would
