NORTH BRANCH CANAL—The Wilkes-Barre Ai . -
vocate_says,of this work, " If the next Legislature
ran devise means by which the State may'finish
the North Brandt Canal, no time should be lost in
accomplishing it. It is an important link in the
chain of State Improvrements. Finished, it would
yield,more revenue than any other section of Ca
nal in the State of same extent. Hence its cornple
tion is of great moment to the State : of very great
moment to Northern Pennsylvanin. The State has
expended much money already on this work, and
by finishing it; would realize a full equivalent back
into the Treasury. No effort should be spared to
deviSe means to do it. It ii to be hoped that the
Legislature will make the consideration of this sub
ject a prominent:item of business."

DEATH Or DIHGATMER GEX MLA L STEPHEN W.
K CAN.:cwt.—Gen. Stephen W. Kearney, the conque
ror of New Mexico and California, is now no more.
His disease has had a fatal termination, as was fear
ed, and he died yesterday, as is announced through
the telegraph ken St. Louis. Of all the officers in
the army, none has rendered more service to his
cou»iry. He entered •it in 1812, was at the fa- ,
moos battle of Queenstown, and from the k ratik of
of Lieutenant rose to that of a Brigadier general.
But the most remarkable service that he performed,
was that in New Mexico and California. the form
er of which, by the celerity of his movements and
the excellence of his plans, he entered. and receiv
ed the complete submission of the inhabitants with
out a single battle r and the latter, joined with the
naval forces andsr Stockton, he conquered . after
several hard fought and successful banks: His
march from Santa Fe to California aas one of the
most daring acts 'that heroism could undertake.
With only a lew follo-sent, between twenty and
thirty, he had several engagements with an enemy
greatly superior in force, through all of whom he
cut his way succession:, though severely woun
ded in one of the encounters. Het was a brave
and chiralrie officer, was prudent as heroic, and
the army and his country lose one of its most gal
lant spirits JO his death. Congress, notwithstan
ding the opposition made in a high quarter in the
Senate, did an act of jnstice when it confirmed his
nomination to his present rank. Gen. Kearney
was born in Newark, New Jersey, about the
year 1793, and was thus in his 55th year at the
time of his death.
SINGULAR CL9C. or ADIALGAMATiON.--AbINN three
weeks ago, a package containing r. , 3700 was stolen
from on Loam one of the boats playing
this city and Norwich, Counecticut, and thus far no
satisfactory clue has been obtained likely to lead to
the recovery of the money. Yesitrday a negro,
w4l known to the police as Bob Moore, arid of
onf New England's fair daughters, a young women
who gave her name as Maria Hutchinson, verc ar
rested at a house in Mulberry street on suspicion
of having committed the. robbery. On questioning
the latter respecting her acqnaintance with Moore,
she stated that she was the daughter of a respecta
ble and influential citizen of Vermont, and that
about i iic weeks ago, in consequence of an alterca
tion with her father, she ran away from home, and,
in Boston, got acquainted, with a colored sailor, na
med Hutchinson, whom she married and avowed
her intention of returning home with him. in order
to modify her parents as much as possible, on an,
count of the course of conduct which they had pur•
sued towards her. After being married to Hutch
inson a fortnigh., he shipped on board a vessel at
Boston, rather precipitately, having ireviously be
come acquainted with Moore,
and introduced him
to his wife. No sooner had Hutchinson got out of
Boston harbor than Moore ' commenced making
love to his friend's wife, and finally succeeded in
pursnading her to come to this city with him. On
their arrival here, they engaged apartments at a
house in Mulberry street, where they have been
livid as man and wile. The latter appears to have
received a liberal education, and converses freely
respecting her situation, but refuses to give her mai
den name, having, in some measure, changed her
mind on the subject of di-gracing her parents. At
present she and her colored paramour remain in
prison, for further examination —N. V. Star.
DR. V. P. Coot.tnat.—This unhappy man is now
confined in a cell of the prison in Augusta, Me., of
which the: ground dimensions do not exceed eight
feet by four. A part of this narrow room is occu

light and air being admitted through iin aperture in
the door. His friends say he cannot survive the
winter. Governor Dana called the attention of the
Legislature to the case last summer, and requested
that body to say whether they wished to have the
convict executed or not at the end of the year—The
warden of the prison also requested that some en
largement or change of treatment might be order.

there was serious talk of ". lynching;' cooler coon

his arrest was being issued here, Shadbolt passed
through here under the charge of constable (IloO

crime of murder. His examination was to take
place yesterday before Esq. Fillmore. Without
expressing any opinion as to the guilt or innocence
of Stiliclbolt, of the murder of his wife, we cannot
withhokl oar condemnation of the crimesof which
he has been guilty. He has been one of a numer
ous gang who have committed every crime in the

ten years, has harbored a gang of ruire fox
among whom has been Shadbolt--who have-ren

on society, in the destruction of property, and other
outrages ma necessary to enpmerate. There has
never been any conviction 'of the rascals, of these
crimes for want of :renal proof, although no doubt
could be entertained of their guilt ; therefore man
slautter, arson, tresspass rind assault have been
com Med with impunity. Whatever the result
of the present examination may be the means of
breaking up a gang of land pirates, whose clepre
clarions would not have continued to this time, hail

Gallantry of the Lion.—On Thursday of last week,
during the heavy Winn of wind and rain, while
the extensive collecfion,of wild beasts in the me
nagerie of blesser. Raymond & Waring were in the
village of Norwalk, a feature was introdamd in the
exhibition not previously announced in the bills.—
About bur in the afternoon a violent gust of wind
blew down the canvass which forms the large pa
vilion, completely enveloping the spectators and
cages of animals in one common mass of confu
sion. The accident happened at the time when
bliss Adelina, the Lion Queen as she is styled, was
performing in the den of wild beasts, and as the
fright of the animals rendered them seemingly an.
coutrolahle, great fears were entertained for the
safety of that interesting young lady. At this mo
ment a scene of indescribable terror and confusion
presented itself. The roaring of the terri fi ed beasts,
the screams of women and cildren, and the " pel
ting* of the pullers storm" without rendering the
scene truly appalling. The panic, however, w
but momentary. es the prompt and energetic mea
sores taken by . the managers soon cleared
