    The Reception of the President in New-j'orJl-.
The President of tlic United Slates
arrived at New York on the 2d insf He
yras received at -Castle Garden by the au
thorities of the city, the militaty, and an
iminenso llirong of citizens, amid the tre
mendous roar of cannon from tlio Ports in
the harbor. After rcviowing the troops, a
procession was formed by the military and
citizens, and passed up Broadway, and
through several streets to tho City Hall.
In speaking of tho reception, the N. Y.
New Era says, thai,
. President Van Duren was rcceivcd,ycs
terday by tho people of the greatest city of
the new world, upon his political principles
and character alono with a degree of pub
uttachnicnt and devotion, as evinced by tho
countless numbers that expressed it, at least
-equal to that which was displayed towards
his truly illustrious predecessor. It was a
proud day for the Republicans of New
York, and as honorable to thctn as the faith
ful Chief Magistrate whom it so emphati
cally hpnnicdV"
On the 4th, tho President attended at the
Chatham street Chapel tho delivery of an
oration by W. R. Maclay, and afterwards
was present nt a Sunday School celebration
on Slatcn Island, where from 15 to 18000
Rnhh.ith School children had assembled to
celebrate their nation's birth day, accom
onicil hv nnarlv G0000 citizens. This
must have been a very interesting spectacle

Drowning men catch at straws.'
The Supreme Court on Saturday last, en
tered a judgement oulsing and removing
Judge Collins from office. A able opinion
vra3 delivered by Judge Kennedy, in which
he set fotlh the ground of removal and on
the same principles Judge Darlington would
have been removed from office also, had ho
not died before the case was determined.
It-is. understood that Judgos Gibson, Ro
gers, Kennedy, and Sergeant assented to
the opinion o"f the court, and that Judge
Huston dissented. Keystone.
Exploration. Silas E. Burrowes, Esq.
an active and enterprising merchant of New
York, has created quite a sensation by lit-
ting out au exploring expedition, and
successfully re-discovering in person the
Aurora Groupe of Islands, that had been ox
punged from the charts. The Now York
Star, says. "He must be made an Admi
ral." Electricity. In Lehigh county a Miss
Ileilths, was struck down by lightning, and
strange to relate, a child in her arms at the
time, was uninjured by tho fluid.

doing great damage among the crops in
the West. Whole fields of oats are dis
trayed in one night.

in England.- It is said to be far preferable
in every respect to iron.
Panama Canal. The Republio of Gra
nada, has empowered a company, lo mane
a canal, rail road or macadamised road over
the Isthmus of Panama. This was the
work that the late Charles Diddle had in
Emigration. It is stated by Toronto
papeis that a great deal ot emigration is ta
king place from Upper Canada, to the U
lined .states, this is a natural result irom
the tyrany of tho British Government.
Military An impottant caso is about to
be tried in Philadelphia, involving the
rights and privileges of militia men on
training days. It is a prosecution for as
snult and batterry against a Captain of t
Company for striking one of his men with
his sword for disobedience on the day of
training. Eminent Connsel are employed
on both sides.

On Wednesday of last week, the Mayor
t?f Philadelphia gave his opinion in tho caso
of Jacob Kidgway, Daniel Mann, and Sto
phen Simpson, binding each of them over
to appear at the next court of criminal ses
sions on a charge of conspiracy to defraud

Messrs. Ridgway and Mann, aro reputed to
bs twff of ' the wealthiest men in Philadelphia.
Wc understand that the Supreme Court
have pronounced judgement of ouster on
tho quo warranto isscd out of that court
on the relation of tho Attorney General a
gainst Orisius Collins, Esq. who was ex
ercising tho functions of President Judge
of tho Common Pleas of Lancaster county,
under one of the bargain and sale appoint
ments of Governor Ritner. Divesting this
caso of all legal phraseology it amounts to
this, that the resignation of his old commis
sion by Judge Collins after tho adoption of
the amendments to the Uonstilution and tnc
acceptance of n new commission before the
first of January when those amendments
went into operation, was in fraud ot the
Constitution and therefore illegal. This is
a most righteous decision and is another re
buke ol the high handed and uncostilulion
al measures of that party which is always
prating about the supremacy ol the laws.

of office reminds us of the fable of tho dog,

The opposition appear to bo in a quan
dary about who among their great men shall
have the honor ol contending lor the Presi
dential chair, against Mr. Van Buren, the
Democratic candidate. The Anti-masons,
or, what is left of them, and the modern
Abolitioiiistc go for Gen. Harrison, inas
much as he is considered tne most uueiy a-
mong those named, lo carry out their mcas
ures. The Whigs, as they lerm themselves
go almost in a body for Henry Clay; these
two seem to constitute the prominent op
position candidates. Messrs. Wcbstcr,Scott
&u. are spoken of, but wc think not scii
ously. To the democracy of the Union, it
matters little who the opposing candidate
may be, as there cannot bo a doubt of Mr.
Van Buren's re-election for another term;
but for the honor of the country, it is de
sirable that tho opposing candidate may be
sucli an one as may havu respectable preten
tious to such an office! As to the fitncs3 of
Gen. Harrison to preside over the destinies
of this republic, we presume none will at
tempt to claim that the possesses the icqnis
qualilications. That he would make just
such a President as such a man as Thad
deus Stevens would like lo have, we do not
doubt. But a true to this.
AH wc ask is that our opponents may
furnish a candidate who can lay claim to
some ability, in order that our victory may
be entitled to some merit.
Nbrristoivn Democrat.
The Easton Sentinel says that, the anti-masonic
piints aro complaining loudly
that ihe democratic members of the legisla
ture refused to vote for giving the election of
Canal Commissioners lo tho people. How
circumstances alter cases. During tho last
threo years, not a word was said, by the
party then in power, about giving the elec
tion to the people. It was all right that
Governor Ritncrshould appoint Canal Com
missioners, but as soon as he and his friends
are out of office, then it is all wrong that
their political opponents should have the
same privilege; and even our intelligent
neighbor of Ihe Whig has made the discove
ry. The proposition lo have the Canal
Commissioners elected by Ihe people, was
introduced in tho Senate by Fraley, a feder
al member from the city of Philadelphia.
I his is truly a great source lor a proposi
tion to popularize the government, to come.
The city of Philadelphia gave some live
thousand majority against the new constitu
tion, which proposed to take patronage Irom
tho governor, and now before the people
have tried it, an cllortis made to givo them
that which never was asked or petitioned
for. Some years ago, a law was passed
providing lor the election ol canal Uommis
sinners, by a joint vote of both branches of
the legislature. This was dono one year,
but it was found not to work well, and the
next year it was repealed.
Keokuck murdered bj young Black

"During the absence of a nephew of
young Black Hawk, Kcokuck got his wife
drunk and passed the night with her. Be
ing thus detected, it fell to Black Hawk,
as tho nearest relative, to avongc his neph
ew's injury, which he took ihe earliest
opportunity to do, anil stabbed Kcokuck, at
