The Appointments.
The appointments at Washington are being
slowly made There is such a rush for the various
posts at the disposal of the Appointing Powers, that
tune will be required to decide upon the claims ant
merits of the applicants. The Piesideut is beleagu

beseiged, by those who are demanding the reward

for an office almost exceeds belief.
this State the principal local offices are Colin.

master at Philadelphia. For Collector the promi.
nent arplicants are Charles Brown, of Philadel
phia, Judge Eldred, Ex Governor Porter, arid John
A. Gamble. For Surveyor, Gen. Reuben C. Hale,
of Nlitflin Co.. and Col. R. IL Young of Philadel
phia. For Naval officer, Judge Strickland, of
Chester County, and J. 51*Kibben of the Merchant's
Hotel. For the Post office, a G. Wescutt is the
most prominent candidates.
These appointments will probably be made soon,
and in the meantime 'a fierce rivalry is existing be
tween the applicants, and no means left untried
which may promote their chances for the coveted
It is rumored, and probably with some truth, that
Mr. BUCIiINAN will be offered a foreign mission.—
That the country will be well represented in such
a case, there Can be no question.
There are at least one hundred applicants from
Pennsylvania for Consulships. Some of these pcst4
are very lucrative, and are sought after. Of course
they cannot all fall to the lot of Pennsylvania, and
there must be some disappointed applicants.
Amongst the appointments already made we no

John J. Mt:Cohen, whose health has been so long
declining, died on Sa urday,.,at his residence in
Philadelphia. Co!. McC was a gen.leman much

be re:gene,' by a large number of fiends and ac•
quaintances. He was one of the largest operators
Ch T`_ird street, and but recently went to England
to negotiate the tire million loan of the Common•
wealth. Cot McC. formerly took an active part in
politics, and was a member of the Convention
which formed the present State Constitution. He
also represented the county of Philadelphia in the
4rr- lion. F. W. Mures has resigned the office
of Secretary of the Commonwealth, and been ap
pointed Attorney General, by Gov. Mr
HCCHES has discharged the duties of the office in a
ffighly credit.ble manner, displaying signal talents
and abilities, and already occupies a prominent po
sition amongst the public men of the Slave. We
understand that the duties of the new office are
more compatible with en extensive and lucrative
law practice, which ha was obliged to neglect
a bile Secretary.
The Governor has appointed CHARM:II A. BLACK,
of Greene Cooley, as Secretary of the Common
wealth, in Mr. Houses stead. The pace was origi
nally tendered to Mr. B , who then was unable to
to accept it. He is a gentleman of fine abil ties
and will undoubtedly discharge the onerous and re
sponsible duties of the office in a manner to distin
guish himself, and reflect honor upon the State.
F. S. Goorinicm, of Bradlord, was re-appointed
Deputy Secretary.

was defeated by a close vote, a majority of the Sen
ate beirg of the opinion that the benefit to the ag
ricultural interest from such an ogcer, would not
repay the expense. The Pennsylvania State Ag
ricultural Society have already received a large
donation from the State, their annual exhibitions
have been , successful, and the money in their treas
ury already amounts to eight or nine thousand dol
lars. Probably the knowledge of this fact, and
their ability to employ and pay well an Agricultu
ral Chemist, had some influence in the termination
of the Senate:
About three weeks or a month agn, Resolutions
were introduced into the Senate, submitting to a
vote of the people the question of a prohibitory li
quor law. They were referred to the Judiciary
Committee, which reported them Ixely with a
negative recommendation. The Resolutions do
not propose to make the operation of any liquor
law dependent upon the sanction of a majority of
the people, but merely to ascertain theirsense upon
a question of great interest, leaving to fatre Legis
lature the responsibility of complying with, or dis
regarding their wishes. It may be said in opposi
tion to the Reso:utions that the Representatives elect
ed by the people reflect their opinions upon all
questions, without a resod to this extraordinary
mode of ascertaining them. This might be tine if
the question of liquor or no liquor could be distinct
ly presented at the election of Representatives, but
in the midst of various and taxying local and per
sonal interest, no general question can be bronght
to bear upon the minds of voters. The Legislature
is overrun with petitions asking for the enactment
of a prohibatory liquor law.

At this Trabue ordered his assistants to " tie this

Marshal of the State of Missouri ; at the same time
pointing one of Colt's revolvers the tugger

a ha..d to interfere, saying that the prisoner was a
base rascal, imposing himself upon the community.
He wets taken nut of the house, pieced upon a
horse and secured by a chain passed under the

that Kelley was charged with being one of the con

on one of the curves, with his face towards it, and,
as the train came wallin a few yards of him, he
deliberately walked towards the track, ahead of the

frame of the locomotive. An arm was broken, out
it is thought that he is not dangerously injured.—
As soon as the fireman saw him walk towards toe
track, he gave the alarm to the engineer, but they
were so near to him at the ifne that be was struck,
that the engine could not be reversed. The engin

he did to deliberately, and with the design to de
stroy his life, which he would certainly have ac
complished if he could hare found time to take
another step. They further state that he was on the
track ahead of the train twice on the day before,

Wm. M. Platt, Samuel Stalk, Ma'am Smith, Thos.
A Miller, A. K Peckham, Wm. F. Terry, Peter
Aumick, and 1' M. Rubinson, were appointed by
theichairman a committee to draft a preamble and
resolutions, expressive of the sense of the meeting.
The committee, aker retiring tt short time, re
turned and reported the following, which were
unanimously tidupted :
WHEREAS, there is niw leading i.t the Senate of
our State, an act entitled " An act to incorporate
the Canton and Athens Railroad company," to
which an amendment has been offered.authorizing
said company to make lateral roads, one of which
authorize said company to construct a Branch
through the counties of Wyoming and Susquehanna
to the Lackawanna and Western Railroad And
whereas, we have learned that certain Senators are
opposed to said amendment on the ground, that
such g toad would injure - the business of the North
Branch Canal. Therefore.
Resolved, 1. That in the opinion ()Idris meeting,
the allegation that a Railroad running through Wyo.
ming county to the Lackawanna and Western Rail
road would 'injure the North Canal, is not
well founded. That said Lackawanna and Western
Railroad is now ss much of a competitor of the
North Branch Canal, as any branch running through
the county of Wyoming arid connecting therewith,
possibly, can be. That none of the heavy tonnage.
that would be carried upon said _branch rail road
would go upon the canal, if such road should not
be built.
2. That the construction of such a toad through
our eounty would add greatly to the prosperity of
Northern Pennsylvania. That instead of diminish
ing, would increase the business of said canal—and
add to the taxable property in this section of the
state four-fold.
3. That while we claim to be the firm anil true
friends • t the N. B. Canal, living along the line of
said imptovemant, and would oppose any measure
that would injure dtesame—arid being satisfied that
a rail-road would not operate injuriously to said ca
nal—we therefore urge upon our Senator and Reps
resentatives to use their influence in favor of the
passage of the amendment aforesaid.
4. Tuat we cannot discover the propriety or
consistency of the opposition made by the Senators
to this bill, when they have voted lot railmaJs along
nearly the whole of the Stare intrrovernents below
us,—that there is no force in the objections made,
sa long as the beginning and terminus are unchang
ed j—that we are utterly opposed to that nix:icily
and contracted policy, and look upon it as unwor
thy of the spirit of the age, that would restrict the
distance between any kind of public improvements.
Resolved, That the President of the meeting be
authorised to appoint a number of persons as a
committee to repair to Harrisburg to urge the pas
sage of said bill.
Resolved That the proceedings of this meceing
be published in the Wyoming, Bradford and S
quelianna papers, and that copies be sent to our
Senator and Representatives.

Church and Missionary Intelligence
The Wesleyan Missiounry Nolias for February,
cites an account cf a remaikable movement in
Sierra Leon, where numbers of idols have been
:4:yen op or cast away by those who had hitherto
been addizted and enslaved to their worship. The
London Watchman states, that at Freetown such a
number of idols were given up as no one suspezted
the place to have contained. The peepie paraded
the streets in crowds, carryir.g the heathen deities
in procession, to delivir them up to the magistrates
and missionaries.
The Northern Christion Adcorate, Auburn, N. ,
objects to the recet-t announcement t om the 3le:h
odist Book Concern that no dividend will be made
this year, in consequence of the outlay for publish
ers, tic. It says: Now, whether such an outlay is
warrantably called tor, at the- expense of making
ro dividend whatever, is not fin us to fay; be that
as it may, the claimants on our Conference funds
Will be seriously affected by it, as the annual divi
dend from the Book Concern has been a consider
able item toward making up the of:en lamentably
small amount paid to the way-worn itinerant, and
to the dependent widows and orphans of deceased
ministers; and now, if this resource is to be cut off
this year, our (almost) -entire dependence'n - ill be
upon what is called the fifth collection; and should
chat be as small as it has been other years, weshall
have cause to feel ashamed of the report that will
have to appear in our Conference minutes, and to
grieve for those who will so severely feel the ef
lee's of so insignificant a pittance.
