FINAL ADJOLIRNIAIifi.—The Legislature ad•
journed sine die at 12 o'clock—the session of the
House terminating with the singing of the
" Star Spangled Banner, " by Mr. Woodhouse,
Postmaster of the House, the members joining
in the refrain.
THE LOCIIIEL GREYS, after having participa

Anderson, yesterday, partook of a sumptuous
collation at the Jones House, by special invite_
Lion of the host, Wells Coverly, Esq. The
tables fairly groaned with the choicest meats
and viands from Coverly's larder and cellar,
and the Grey's who are so anxious to become
heroes, done ample justice to the generous re
past. Toasts were proposed, songs sung, and
sentiments offered, full o; friendship patriot
ism and ardor, during which the words "good
bye" were given and taken, and many a faith
ful assurance of remembrance passed between
the friends who were present and the soldiers
who were preparing to depart. The Grey's
are as intelligent, as devoted and as gallant a
corps of soldiers as ever marched to the tap of
the drum. May they return covered with as
much fame as they leave with friendship !
Tliz PENNSYLVANIA RAILROAD.-A writer in
the Lancaster Express thus speaks of the Penn
Last year the receipts of the Pennsylvania
Railroad were half a million more than the year
before-1,203,444 traveled on it-66,000 more
than the year before ; notwithstanding the
universal depression of almost every branch
of every business ; in consequence of nonpro
tection—the hurticane of politics—impending
war. Why has its business been ao good ?
Travelers agree it is the best road between the
Delaware and the Mississippi—perhaps the best
in the conn try. The track the best-356 miles
-double, less 98—the bridges the best-01
what a magnificent Fcene from the one over the
Susquehanna above Harrisburg. The depots
the best—some of them equal in strength and
beauty to the best models of Grecian architec
ture, when Greece was Greece. There is not a
leaf norblade in creation that is not burnished,
tasseled or tipped with beauty. After that
model, man should work. The warehouses
the best—strength—simplicity beauty. The
management the best—Napoleon's energy-22
millions dance to the music of 218 locomotives.
All these things combined add to the safety
of the traveler—to say nothing of comfort—
beauty of scene.
POLICE AFFAIRB.—The city Lock-Up contain
ed eight occupants last night, all of whom
were discharged this morning, except one,
who manifesting a beligerant disposition was
sent across the way to "cool off"
The police efficars seem to be after violators
of city ordinances with a sharp stick. Messrs.
Chas. Carson, Jas. J.. Espy and Jacob Mish,
were summond before the Slayer for porch...-.
lug artl3les at the market before market hours.
They were each fined one dollar and costs.
Messrs. John M'Cord, David Batter, and two
ethers whose names are unknown, were pulled
for fast and reckless driving through the streets.
Each fined one dollar and costs.
A colored man named Perry, was up for
maintaining a filthy hog-pen on his premises.
Fined $2 and costs.
Mrs. Catharine Dubbs was fined five dollars
and costs for maintaining a filthy privy on her
A suspicious looking man was arrested yes
terday anJ oufined in the Lock-up at the in
stance of several respectable citizens of Me
chanicsburg. It seems that about a week ago
the man visited that borough In search of em
ployment ; but failing in his mission, he left
there for this city, representing to the tavern
keeper, whom be owed for board, that he was
intimately acquainted with one of the Phila
delphia members of the Legislature . , from
whom he would borrow money, and when he
did so, he would return and nettle his bill.—
The next day the man "turned up" at Fair
view, opposite our city, and he had not been
lung in that village until the tavern of Mr.
n _was discovered to be on fire. The
it: o ll l .ger exhibited a great degree of activity in
tralfeng to remove the furniture from the
ma e, and among the articles he was seen to
vrekbve was a desk which contained the sum
coinwenty dollars, placed there by Mr. Martin.
"lifter the progress of the fire had been ar
conked, and when the furniture was being re

Idesk to see if the money it contained was

ME Pay OF Taoors.—We published some
time ago a table of soldiers attached to the
different grades in the army which Is likely to
mislead the reader. It was stated that the pay
of a Colonel is 218 dollars per month, and that
of a private 20 dollars, the intermediate grades
being in proportion. The above sums include,
besides the regular pay, the allowance for ra
tions, (when commuted) horses, servants, &c.,
which ought not to be reckoned as pay. The

A Barran FULING.—The public mind seems
b be growing more firm in the conviction that,
although the political and social strife which is
now sweeping over the country may produce
present troubles and distress, the Union will
timately be preserved and be better from having
been fully renovated from the foul things as
Davis, Floyd, Toombs and company. This
moral clensing so important to the government
does not prevent the Eureka of dry goods
stores from opening their large stock of new
goods just received from New York, and will be
sold at prices to baffle competition.

this morning, under guard of a company of
soldiers. He was then placed in a small

His wife went to Annapolis to see him, bat

Winans was this morning nominated for

FROM ST. LOUIS.
The case of Captain McDonald came up be
fore Judge Treat this morning. The writ was
served on General Harney, who answered in
writing to the effect that the person of Cap•
tain McDonald not being at the Arsenal, or
within the reach of the officers of the court, it
Could not be procured ; that ha deplored as
much as any one the state of things existing
here, but was bound to maintain the higher
law of the Government over all and every ef
fort at rebellion ; that Captain McDonald was
taken prisoner while lending. his counte
nance and support to an assemblage of men
whose every act, move, end and design
was in opposition to the Government of the
United States; that he doubted whether, if
Capt. iti'Dosiald was still held at the arsenal,
he would be justified in delivering him up on
the demand that had been made upon him,
and that he should await, and endeavor to
strictly carry out the instructions he might re
ceive in relation thereto.
Mr. Urial Wright, one of the counsel of Mc-
Donald, entered a demurrer, and Judge Treat
postponed the matter till the regular session of
the Court, on Monday next, as the question
presented was of grave import, and if decided
in chambers might be opened hereafter.
After the examination of many witnesses,
the coroner's jury returned the following ver
dict in the case of those killed at Camp Jack
son : "That the several victims of the events
which took place at Jackson on the 10th of
May came to their death by gunshot wounds,
inflicted by musket balls, discharged by certain
United States Volunteers, under the command
of Gen. N. Lyon, and Cols. F. P. Blair, H.
Boernsteln, and others."
The examination of witnesses and others, re
lative to the Walnut-street tragedy enacted on
Saturday evening, has not yet been concluded.
The application for a writ of habeas corpus, in
the case of Captain McDonald, was not granted
on Monday by Judge Treat, in consequence of
the petition being attested by a justice of the
peace, and not, therefore, to be recognised by
a United States court. Yesterday United States
Commissioner Hickman visited the Arsenal to
certify to McDonald's affidavit, and was inform
ed by Gen. Lyon that the Captain was a pris-
oner-of-war, and,..gioreover, was not in Mis
souri. The. affidaVit.of the prisoner's brother
was then promptly attested, and the writ issued,
returnable at eleven o'clock this morning.
General Harney's answer is given above.
General Harney denies that there has been
any insubordination among the United States
volunteers, but on the contrary says they have
submitted with alacrity and cheerfulness to the
discipline of the service.
The public schools of this city will be closed
on Friday next, in consequence of the act of
the Legislature prohibiting the distribution of
the school money.
