The Legislature of last winter, did not
change the rate of $7OO 00 pay, but contins

clause in the appropriation • bill, but it was

Mr., Simeon 'B. ChaSe'e career may be
briefly summed up as follows :
He procured the pass:ige , of an'odious and
unjust law to prevent peddling; ths effect of
which was to compel people to purchase
goods which they needed at specific places,
'instead of leaving them free to buy where they
please. The petition for ibis sawaS got up
and signed by about a d.ozen tuen, secretly.

4t False early.
Our people are already familiar with the
falsehood and 'deception, practised in the
State by our opponents The most eoriupt
fusions have been; formed and imposed upon
the people:as "siinon pure," "Relmblicatt,"
"Ametican," !ctother tickets, 'as was best
suited to the locality. Again_this fall is a
ticket put forth to the Voters. of . the State,
which, in this region, is claimed to represent
the,Fremont party of 1656. We need not
stop to inquire whether this be so, or not ; it.
is quite enough to -remember that no such
position was taken at the convention, and
that a milk and water—or mud and water
plat(orm•was made, which is explained to
suit different localities. In the Southeastern
part of the State, the ticket is supported upon
an entirely diffiirent platform from the !one
claimed in ills region. The Philadelphia
Daily News, a , Fillmore paper in '56, now
an advocate of the opposition State ticket,
and a recognized organ of our opponents,
says :
"It appeared plain to us' that the Repub
lican movement hf 'sG•and of '57 was wronj,
ni".l rruuL -aes? gu eu, to ruin the
prospect of establishing - ari Ainericau
We therefom had no choice 'but to contend
against the Republican party as well as - a
gainst the Loco Foco party, and events have
drown that we were right. The Republicans
hare acknowledged their error, and, so fur as
Pennsylvania is concerned, have abandoned
their organization. Were. we disposed to
exult. we; should have abundant cause to do
so; but we knew that most of those who had
joined the Republican union movement were
not the enemies of American measures, but
simply mistaken friends: It. is enough for
us to know now that they hate abandoned
their error,"
How many of our opponents in this county
, will admit that they have "acknowledged their
error and % abandoned their organization r
i Vet such declarations are puk forth in other
parts of the State with theif silent sanction.
We do not - believe the mass of the "Repub -
limn" party here authorize this hypocracy,
'but the leaders, who manage affairs know
from litter experience that. without this their
party is doomed to perpetual and hopeless
defeat. But falsehood Will finally, meet a
proper rebuke, and our mongrel - opponents
must. again be aught, tbat soine regard should
be paid to truth, if they wish to escape the
deserved vengeance of an outraged people.

tir The "Republican" press have very
general insisted that the nomination of Sena
tor Stuart for Governor by the Democracy of
Michigan, was a reflection upon the policy
of President Buchanan. The fhllowing reso
lution, hoivever, is specific and clear
"Resolved, That we declare our confidence
in the ability, integrity and patriotism of
the administration of our, venerable Presi
dent, James Buchanan, and it OA have our
heirty support in all its measures for the
maintenance of our glorious Constitution and
Union, and for the advancement of the pfos
perity and happiness of our whole country."
The Convention also paved a resolution re

the Black "Republicans" having declared
their defeat, their cases must therefore be
carried before the House of Representatives

did. not add a State to the Union, . although
it took the initiative measures to bring the
slave State of Texas into the -Union. The
I formal adniission waaaccomplisbed by . Presi-
I dent Polk in 1 846-., -
A Democratic Congress mim' theadminis
tratioa of Fillniore, brought California into
the Union with his assent. His signature
was all the opposition ever did toward. in-
1 creasing the number of free States - from the '
foundation of the government.
; * * * * *
Despite the charge which the Black 1'4.-
publicans make; that the Democracy are in
favor of the &tension of slavery into the ter
ritory now free ; 'the records show that not a
mile of free territory was ever acquired by
the General Government and, converted into
slavery. On the contrary, four fifths of the
immense territory whicih was acquired by the
Louisiankpurehase in 1803, which was all i
slave when we bought it, will •biconverted i
into 'free States under the principle of the I
Compromise, of 1850, adopted by a Demo
cratic Cormes:s. Texas and. Florida ,have
been added the Union, but slavery•alreaq•
existed in them when acquired, so that.their i
acquisition made •no difference to the interest 1
of freedom. Of the territory acquirid from I
Mexico . in 1850, it is a moral certainty that I
it will all he made into free States..
With, this history of the country before us,
-is it not. astonishing that any person should I.
have the effrontry to talk about the domi
and aggression of the South, or .to
charge the Democratic party with being. op- ,

Murder of live youtig Girls in Spain.
The Barcelona Journals contain an account
of a horrible and almost incredible assassina
tion of five young girls,at Vilch,in Catalonia.
It appears that, on the 21st tilt., as six young
at the ages of 23, 21,14, 13, 1 . 2 and 10
years, were waking home from Mataus,cotton
mills, which are sitated near the village of
llothis, to Ingarolas, they were stopped by
• two miscreants, who, pistol in hand, obliged
them to turn back to a solitary place in Ser..
radanwood. Here'they were ordered to sit
4 own , an d vehi! o one- vtretnb kept guard over
five, the other 'led the eldest a few paces:: oh*,
and plunged his long Catalina knife into her
throat. Her dying ;del was heard by her
companions, who tone by one, were led away
and butcher - ed. ' The youngest of all, a child
of 10 years, on receiving a' wound, le: the
neck, fells feigning death, upon which the
assassins, ; after taking the little money the
girls had about them, went to the village of
Rodas, .where they lived.
The crime was perpetrated .at night. The
wounded child remained motionless•
light, when
.she crawled to a neighborir e
fartnhOul,Q.. When the authorities arrived
at the seat of crime, they found the three
eldest girls dead, and two desperately wound•
ed. The cause of-this bloody , act is is dd to
have been jealousy, arising from some display
of coquetry at a ball the preceding Sunday,
where the prettiest of the girls, the one 21
years of age, refused to dance with one of the
assassins, or to return him a ring or some
,other love .token, lie had then looked for
an accomplice, and found one in a neighbor.
The accomplice, it appears from the deposi.,
tion of the child, would have spared the
younger ones, 1.4 t the other, alleging the
danger of discovery, insisted upon their.cem
pletiog their butchers work. The authori
ties are making the most active exertions to
discover the lurking places of the culfirita,
whose persons are well known to the workmen
of the numerous mills. . •
• The Coolies in
HAVANA, Sept. 9, /858.
The institution of abolition philanthropy
is flourishing in our island with results
which must be very gratifying to the benevo
lent souls who have advocated Indian and
Asiatic coolie emignition, under contracts
for Cuban servitude—eight years, renewable
at the pleasure of the contracting parties, if
the subject 'lives. On the 29th ultimo ar
rived the Dutch ship Van Heinskisk,Korning
master, 140 days from Swatow, with 489
coolie; having lost during the voyage one
hundred and twenty-seven from disease. and
casualities; on the 31st ultimo, by the Dutch
ship Cornelius • 'Loon Hoof, Keens. mast er ,
15:2 days' voyage; same port, received-alive
368 coolie), two hunched and ten having
perished during the passage. The deaths
horn the cargo •of this vessel, since, arrived,
by disease' contracted on shipboard, have
varied from ten to eighteen per day op to
yesterday, so that there will be 'but a rem
nant left for toil. - The coolies are put in an
old hulk, which is kept -in the quarantine
anchorage as an laespital, and have as good ,
medical treatment and camas can be pro
cured, but - they perished—uncounted but
for fees—and sleepla the bottom of the bay
near the halk,—not unmolested, for it-has be
come the favorite•feeding ground of shoals
of sbarlat,•which, in consequence, now infect
the upper arm of the bay, and must of neces
sity, more or less, infect the ,air, from the
putrid remains which are scattered every
where by these voracious, monsters preying
opon the bodies of.‘the - relieved .Asiatics.
There is no danger of natural increase, as
but few females are brought here.; but",the
