miles on and after the first day of July next
The intention of the company is not to furn

motive power wherewith to haul the cars of
the Northern Central Railroad Company. At
Lock Haven commodious machine shops and
depots have been erected. A sufficient nuui
ber of Locomotives are now building to accom
modate the traffic. The portion of the Suu
bury and Erie Railroad between Lcck Haven
and Sunbury is in excellent order. The west
ern division, under the snperintendance of
Samuel A. Black, Esq., has been in efficient
operation since the first of the year, and is
doing a heavy freight business from the oil
region of Pennsylvania. On the first of July
next, the Sunbury and Erie Company will
have one hundred and forty-nine miles of their
own. road in use, and with upwards of ten
miles additional almost in working order.
THE LATE DESTRUCTIVE TORNADO AT THE
WEST, according to the calculation of the
Chicago Tribune, swept over the space of four
hundred and fifty miles, without diminution of
force, smiting towns, farms, forests, and every
thing on the surface of the earth with appall
ing violence and destruction. Towns were laid
low, and whole forests crushed in an instant,
and large streams of water literally scooped out
by the mighty tempest. The course of the
tornado is now traced from Fort Dodge,
Webster county, lowa, more than two hun
dred miles west of the Mississippi river, to the
northeastern corner of Ottowa county, Michigan.
Nor is it at all probable that the entire range
of devastation is yet known, though its direc
tion at both extremities leads us to hope that
however far it may have traveled, it did not
involve much more destruction of human life
than is already known The time occupied
by the tempest in making the entire distance
cannot yet be curreutly estimated. We kuow
merely that it swept over Webster couuty,

man of the Special Committee on the
Harper's Ferry Insurrection, THADDEUS IIYATT
was Thursday released from the custody in
which, for some time past, he has been held
for refusing testify before the Committee. In
connection with this proceeding, Air. SUMNER
spoke at some length, vindicating liberty of
conscience, and justifying Mr. HYATT'S course.
The Majority and Minority Committees on the
Johnßrown Insurrection made their report. The
Tariff bill was then taken up,uud was strongly
opposed by Mr. HUNTER, who argued that no
change in the present tariff was necessary, as
it afforded sufficient revenue for the economical
support of the Government, and the extinguish
ment of the public debt. Mr. SEWARD spoke
at length on the subject, and strongly advocat
ed the bill and its immediate consideration.—
To postpone it to the next session, he said,
would be to postpone it indefinitely. The argu
ments for postponing it were so weak as to
show a manifest disposition to avoid the whole
subject. By a vote of 25 against 23, further
consideration of the bill was postponed. The
Army Appropriation bill was taken up, und
some of the House ameudineuts agreed to.—
Tiie Overland Telegraph bill, already passed
by the House, was concurred in by the Senate.
In the House the proceedings were not of
much importance. The request of the Senate

THE COVODS COMMITTEE.—Much has been
said in regard to the expenses of the Covode
Committee. They have been in session three
months, and have examined about one hun

age, does not exceed $2,500. As an offset to
this, the Committee has done an immense deal
of good iu exposing the frauds and rascalities
of the Locofoco politicians, which in no other
way could hare been brought before the public
and the value of which cannot be measured
in dollars arid cents. The developements it
has made will contribute largely to tbc defeat
of the corrupt party in power, and that rs a

THE BALTIMORE CONVENTION.
The Baltimore Convention which meet on
Monday, spent the first day of its session in a
bitter wrangle npon a proposition to admit to
fellowship again those delegates who seceded
at Charleston. Mr. Sanford E. Church of the
New-York delegation made a proposition re
quiring all who were admitted to scats in the
Convention to abide by the nomination made.
This "test oath," as it was called, excited a
fresh outburst of rancor.
A special despatch to the New York papers,
Tuesday, at 1 o'clock, says that " Mr. DOUG
LAS is undoubtedly beaten, and the chances
now appear to favor a union upon HORATIO
SEYMOUR, of New York."
The feeling is iutense and bitter, and the
breech seems wider than at the adjournment
at Charleston. New York seems to have con
trol of the Convention, and votes steadily with
the South, though it is claimed her vote would
be cast for DOUGLAS' nomination.
CsS-Thc charge of fraud in tbc election of
Hon. George W.Scranton, of the Luzerne dis

Wiußlow, o? North Carolina, who insisted on
an investigation before the Covode Committee
after the examination of several witnesses, be
came disgusted with the whole proceedings,and
refused to take more testimony, acknowledg
ing that he bad been imposed upon. Among
the witnesses examined were the Hon. George
Sanderson, Democrat, of Seranton, who testifi
ed that he knew of no money having been
used to further Mr. Scranton's election, but
that the great change in that district was
caused by the disaffection which prevailed
among the Democracy towards the present
Administration, and by the high character and
popularity of Mr. Seranton among all classes;
J. 11. Puleston, who testified that he accom
panied Mr. Seranton thro' the greater part of
the canvass of 1858, and that no money was
improperly used to his knowledge, nor any
improper means, to advance his election ; Dr.
Davis, editor of the Seranton Herald, a Dem
ocratic paper, who testified that he supported
Mr. Seranton in opposition to the regular Dem
ocratic nominee, because of his fitness and de
votion to the best interests of the People of
his District, and that he received no pecuniary
consideration for these services. Others, in
cluding Mr. Brisbin, formerly Democratic
Member of Congress, were present anxious to
testify in Mr. Scranton's behalf, but further
testimony was declared unecessary.
I). S. Koon, lawyer, residing at Pittston,
who preferred the charges, knew nothing be
yond vague statements, and upon the examina
tion of Dr. Puleston in reply, was unceremon
iously dismissed as unworthy of notice. The
Committee, of which Mr. Winslow is a memb
er, unanimously ordered that Mr. Koon should
not receive either mileage or fees ; but Mr.
Seranton very generously directed his return
ing expenses paid, notwithstanding his base
This experiment has cost about SIOOO. —
When the investigation was proposed, Mr.
Covode protested against calling witnesses
without specific information, but Mr. Winslow
appealed to the House aud obtained the order.
HON. JOHN GALBRAITII, formerly a Repre
sentative in Congress from the Erie District,
and for several years President Judge of the
Courts of Erie, Crawford and Warren counties,
died very suddenly yesterday at his residence
in Erie, lie served in Congress from 1838 to
1831, and again from 1839 to 184-1, and occu
pied a high position as an intelligent and sag
acious representative. As a learned, upright
aud impartial jurist, few men ever enjoyed a
larger share of public confidence. For the
last couple of years Judge GALBRAITII had
giveu up almost his entire time to the establish
ment of an Industrial Reform School for the
instruction and reformation of the destitute
and criminal, and with a liberal act of incor
poration proeaped in 1859, mainlv through bis
efforts, the institution was in a fair way of suc
cessful inauguration, a farm of several hun
dred acre 3 in Western Pennsylvania having
already been purchased for its location.

and highly respectable citizen of Forks township, had j
his leg broken, one day last week. Mr. R. was riding on 1

just below the knee.
MYSTERIOUS —Mr. II ENRY GREEN, of Cher
ry township, informs us, that on Wednesday of last week. '
as his brother aud a small boy were searching in the
woods for some lost cattle, that about one hundred rods
from the main road, on a by road, leading into a large
swamp, they ramo upon the remains or skeleton, of a
horse. Near these remains were fonnl a saddle, bridle
and martingales, very much decayed. The saddle was
secreted under a fallen tree. Near the skeleton was found
a club, some two or three feet in length, and many who j
examined it say that traces of blood are distinctly visible j
upon it. No bones of the skeleton were fractured, how- :
ever. Three of the horses' hoofs were found, two of i
which still retained their shoes. The manner in which
the horse was shod, is pronounced by those that are fa
iniiiar with such things, and have examined these, to in
dicate that the horse came from a distance, as no such
mode of shoeing is practiced anywhere in this vicinity.
The hoofs were also considerably worn, showing that
the horse had traveled considerably. The saddle, bridle,
martingales, and hoofs bearing the shoes, are now in the
possession of WALTER K. GREEN, who resides within a
quarter of a mile of where the remains were found.
There is a mystery in this matter that may never be
fathomed. The horse could never have strayed there
and died, as the disposition of the saddle shows. There
may have been a murder perpetrated there and the vic
tim sunk in the marsh near by, in which the weight of n
man's body would sink from twenty-five to thirty feet,
never to be recovered. It is a mysterious affair, at least

H. L. SCOTT, E. R. MYER, U. MEBCUR.
The Committee asked and obtained leave to report a
constitution and by-laws for the government of the As
sociation at an adjourned meeting.
On motion, there was a committee of five appointed to
draft resolutions expressive of the sense cf the Associa
tion, viz E. GI YEB, G- H. W ATXINS, Maj. U. TERRY,
Col. G. F. MASON, E. P. SHAW.
The Committee through their Chairman, after a short
absence presented the following Resolutions, which were
unanimously adopted :
In view of the approaching Presidential election elec
tion, the Republican electors of Bradford county deem it
advisable to orgauizc a County Campaign Republican
Association, the sole purpose of which shall be to co
operate with siroilarorganizationsinthc respective town
ships of the county, stimulate the formation of republi
can clubs in the election districts where this has not yet
been done, and do whatever else is essen'ial to secure
the triumph of the republican cause ; and that this may
not be misunderstood we de<lare,
First, That it is our solemn conviction that free labor
alone can preserve this government, and that to uphold
and advance it, is alike our privilege aud our duty, to
the past, the present and the future.
Second, That as the institution of Slavery as sustained
in the Southern States of this Union, denies to the col
ored race the rewards due to both mental and physical
labor, it degrades the industrial pursuits of the" Free
States, and abnegates the inalienable rights of man, thus
practically refuting fhe whole theory of our democratic
institutions as understood by the lathers of the republic.
'l\ird, That as the propagandists of this institution
are endeavoring to extend its territorial area, and social
and civil influence, it behooves us, as consistent freemen,
to oppose this extension at all points, and by allconstitn
tionai means, wishing it to be distinctly understood that
we claim no right to interfere with it in the states where
it now exists.
Fourth, 'J hat as tbe doctrine of Protection to Home
Industry, as recognized in the earlier impost laws, tends
to ennoble toil, elevate and strengthen the laboringman,
in all his relations of life, we declare an unfaltering ad
hesion to it.
Fifth, That as strict economy in administering the
fiscal affairs of the nation, is due to the people .and neces
sary to keep down peculation, we avow our utter adhor
rence of the wastefulness of the public funds, and the
fraudulent purposes on which they have been appliedjiy
Mr. Buchanan and bis administration.
Sixth , That as a party, We are opposed to rebellion
against the constituted authorities, and long established
u.->ages of the goveruuient, no matter from what quarter
Seventh, That we hold no persona! animosity towards

Stir By the arrival Sunday evening of the
Bohemian at Farther Point, from Liverpool
on the 6th inst., and Londonderry on the 7th,
we have three days later intelligence from
Europe. It is of considerable importance.—
The reports concerning GARIBALDI and the
bombardmeut of Palermo are as usual,conflict
ing. According to some advices, the bombard
meut still continued, while others describe
GARIBALDI as having stormed the citadel, after
the capture of a portion of the Neapolitan
artillery. Subsequent accounts state that on
a proposition of General LANZA, commander
of the r yal troops, an armistice had been con
cluded, GARIBALDI demanding that the Nea
politan army should evacuate Palermo. This
would seem to be true, as still later advices
from Naples represent the King as refusing
the couditions, the recommencement of hostil
ities being close at hand. Later dispatches
still state that the bombardment had commenc
cd, while a telegram from Palermo, of the 3d,
announces that the urmistice still continued ;
that GARIRALPI was master of the town, but
that the Neapolitan troops held the forts
Letters from the French sqnadroD say that
GARIBALDI was compelled to grant through a
failure of ammunition. Officers from the Sar
dinian army were abont to join them. From
England we learn that the Post office authori
ties had notified the Company of the Gal way
Line that services on the mail contract were
to commence on the 26th inst., for New-York,
and on the 10th of July for Boston. The Com
pany were to hold an extraordinary meeting,
to borrow money. In the House of Commons
Mr. GLADSTONE stated that £500,000 more
would be wanted for the expenses of the China
war. Lord JOHN RUSSELL denied that it was
the iutention of the Government to postpone
the Reform bill until next session. ID com
mercial maters there was a slight decline in
cottoo, with an advance in flonr and wheat,
owing to the unfavorable state of the weather.
Provisions were at nominal prices.
MORRISSEY GOING INTO TRAINING. —The

iST By the California Overland Express
arrived at Springfield, Mo., on the night of
the 14th inst., we have news from California,
which is not of special iuterest, to the 25th
ult. The news from Japan is to April 2, and
that in relation to the attack opon Prince
GOTAIKO is of interest. The statement is that
about a week prior to the date of the news,
Prince GOTAIRO, while ON his way from his resi
dence to the palace in Jeddo, with his usual
guard of sixteen, was attacked by a party of
eighteeu, aud six of the guard aod four of the
assailants were killed. Seueral others were
wounded, among them the Prince, but his
recovery was confidently anticipated. It ia
feared by many that a revolution is impending
which, if succeasfol, will result in the expulsion
aod death of all foreigners.
MASSACRE OF MISSIONARIES.— We have in
telligence of another massacre of missionaries
in Patagonia. It took place upon one of" the
islands near the coast, to which the Patagonia
Missionary Societj had sent agents, in hope
of civilizing and Christianizing the people.
Not long siuce, the Captain of the mission
ship, with the Catechist and six of the crew,
while on shore, were set upon by the natives
some two hundred in number, and were beaten
to death with clubs.
THE HOMESTEAD BlLL.— After several nxet
ings of the Committee of Conference cm fhe
disagreeing votes of the Senate and House on
the Hqraestead Bill, and a great deal of dis
cussion on the various propositions, the Com
mittee reported that they were utterly unable
to agree, and asked for their discharge Thus
ends the matter for the present. The friends of
the Homestead bill know upoD whom the blame
rests. The Republicans of the Senate aud
House lmve done best to secure the passage
of this beneficent measure, aud the democracy
has effectually prevented them. The triumph
of LINCOLN* alone can scenre the success of a
measure to which the people of the free North
are so much attached.
HON. JEREMIAH S. BLACK, Attorney-Gene?*!

caused by the death of Judge DANIEL,
Of Ptarlef Fevef, at' Macedonia. Pa., on tbe 24th of May,
in the loth year of his age, WALTER, elheat son of
WM. F. and ANN E. COLE.
The writer of this notice has seldom' been called npolr
to discharge a mom w*?fn! ffbiy than he experienced in
performing the funtfhl obsequies of the deceased.
WALTS* was an unusually sprightly aud winning lad,
intelligent'cfuite beyond his years. He possessed many
exceilfentqualities of both head and heart; was obliging to'
his friends, always courteous tb strangers, dutiful to his
parents, respected to his teachers, and kind to his little
brothers and sister. His early death is greatly lamented ;
but we console ourselves with this pleasing reflection
that what is '• odd loss is lils unspeakable gain." R w
Thy first born son is ca led away,
Dear mother, to be free.
To dwell with Jesus ; hear him say—
" Let children come to me."
His tender mind was yet impressed
With truths divinely given,
That be must preach, and sd be bleat,
Befori hi went to heaven.
Rut God, to show his work of grace.
Released this little one,
That he might see his Father's face,
And glorify his Son;
Thus WALTER died. God chose his time,
And broke tbe earthly tie,
To plant him in a fairer clime.
Above the starry sky.
Fctfl parents, db not tubura your loss.
For him there's no mote pain,
Devoutly cling unto the cross,
And thus ye'U meet agaiu. P. W.

the pearl of great price in her youth, and identified her
self with the M. E. Church,—and- during the remaining
term of her mortal? Sfe, rtbrthiiiy shared the confidence
and warm auction of her christian associates. She was
joined in marriage with the Rev. GEORGE LANDON on tbe
31st of October, 18412. and vrftb him shared in tbe toils
and trials incident to the chrietiKi rfclbistry.
Sister LANDON was uniformly cheerful, htid a tender
sympathetic heart,free from osteirtalflon and deceit,—one
that was always herself, a? home a*# abroad. She was a
warm and trusty friend, a doting wether, and an affec
tionate wife, fully consecrated to the interest and happi
ness of her family. In her social exercises of worship,
her expressions were earnest and confident, yet ever
chastened with christian modesty and self-abasement
Death came when the love of life was probably strongest
surrounded as she was with worldly comforts and beloved
companion, and five interesting children, (one having
preceded her to Heaven,) but grace triumphed,—she eu
joyed peace with God, and calmly resigned herself to his
How blest the righteous when he dies ;
When sinks a weary soul to rest;
How mildly beam the closing eyes '
How gently heaves the expiring breast.
The high respect and esteem in which the deceaied
was held by the community where she lived and died, * as
clearly evinced by the unusual number that were in at

Farewell! We meet no more
On this side Heaven ;
The parting scene is o'er.

He was bora HI Oxford, Worcester county, Mass., Sep.
tember 4. 17#fe, and had consequently obtained the aje
of eighty two years, nine months and two days. He came
to the region of country in which he lived, and died about
the year 1600, when it was a wilderness. Hither be was
soon followed by his father and the remainder of hisfsm
ily. He lived to see the wilderness, once echoing with
the howl and shriek of the wild tieast, inhabited by indus
trious men, crossed by numerous and good roads, and
trees formed into fruitful fields.
He became a member of the church of Warren and
Orwell (then Congregational) in 1818. When this church
was divided his lot was cast with the Warren (now Pres
byterian) church, hi which he remained nntihhis deata.
He was 'quiet, inoffensive, intelligent christian man,
and emphatically a man of peace. For forty two years
he was permitted to follow in the footsteps of Christ—
He adorned the religion he professed by a consistent
walk, by his constant attendance npon the sanctuary
when able, and.by libsral contributions to the support ot
During his last and long sickness, he delighted to speak
of the sufferings of it, and to profess him before men.—
He was greatly interested in all the revivals of religion
and especially desired one in the church to whioh he be
longed, as all know who heard bis frequent prayersin
exhortations-. As he appYoached the hour of dissolution
his hope seemed bright and his faith strong. He com
milted himself to the Lord, who, he was persuade >

ful life and died almost without a struggle, and as"
holicvo, enjoying a good hope o! a glorious resurrcc.ion
