Death of William E. Huberts.
It ii onr painful duty this week to an
liouuce the deaih of one of the most estim
able citizen.- of Columbia county, in the
person ol William. E. Roberts, one of the
forty-four arrested n.en trxn the upper end
of ibis county, who died while under mili
' tary power, at Fort Jlijflin, a few dayo since
His remains pitted through ibis place, on
'their way to their last resting place, lor
interment, cn Monday evening last. He
Ieaes a respectable, kind and affectionate
family to mouro his departure. Imagine
the leelingsof his lamily, of his friend and
relatives, nu hearing of his death. His lam
ily is stripped of its bead, deprived ol its
'support and protection, without any mem
ber of it being present at his dea'.h to have
dminisieredto him any words of comlort
in bis dying hours. The community ha
lost a oselul and worthy citizen, the church
au exemplary member, and his family a
'kind parent. He had arrived at a good age,
being some filly-six, just at the stage men
usually decline in health andbecome more
or less infirm. Mr. Roberts's heahti was
delicate when be wa placed under arre.-t,
and soon after became so feeble that fears
were entertained as to bis recovery. He lin
gered along in one of the lastiles of this
administration, held as a political prisoner
for over a month, when death relieved him
'from all his pain and suffering This is one
case out of many, where men have been ar
rested by this corrupt and despotic admin
ist ration, thrown into some rotten and filthy
'prison, and there left to pine away and die
just as has been the case of Mr. Ruber;.
'Men bate been dragged into pri-on for no
offence known to the law, without charge
or commitment, and there held until the
panizan malice and spleen is thought suf
ficiently spent, after which they are released
' tc return to tLeir homes, not knowing thai
they ever violated any part of the laws of
2 iheir country, or in any way became amen
able to :he law. It this administration 'is
famous for any one thing, in the eyes of the
' American people as well as that of all Eu-
" " rope, it is fur its military and arbitrary "ar-
J ' rests ! The present administration wields
more power than any one that tVt r preceded
" ' it. Thi man was a quiet law-abidiu citi
zen, firm friend and supporter of his gov
" ernment, upholding1 and advocating all con-
r stitutioqal laws and measures, but never
for a moment1" doubted Ihe right to criticise
1 ' and examirfe into the acts of the present
""'"- administration, which he, in common with
the Democratic party has dune, and the
any shall continue to do so, until every
member of it lie in military bastiles. Tt.e
1 balance of the forty our Fort 5'iffiui prison
' era, save four, are stilfheld in the military

" ' some kind of a military trial. They hae

sianu taat Kinu oi treatment, i ney are
' used to an out door agricultural life, and to
'insure the lives of many of them they must
. t soon be released, or follow the way of Mr.

over one of the'strongest Abolition guns in

Fort Mifflin, October 7. I8fi4.
Editor of The Star: It becomes my
painful duty to announce the death of Wil
liam E. RobTrts, one of the citiznn prison
ers brought here by the military on the first
of September. He had been at the hospi
tal about twelve days. At midnight last
evening the gates'of our ee l were thrown
open and the death ol Mr Roberts was an
nounced. You may imagine, Mr. Editor,
the feelings this sad news imparted at that
g t til
uur teelings were such that ,
little sleep came to our reliel during the re
mainder ol the ninht. When he left the
bomb-proof for the hospital he was the
very picture of despair ; his beard and hair
whitened with the Irosts of fifty-six winters,
his form beni over, hishands clasped across
his breast. . I turned from the scene wiih
feelings . ol anguish. Banished from his
home from his wife and lamily and dy
ing without ihe sight or a com!or;ni word
from those who would have gladly admin
istered ucto him i'i his dying hours. And
what can I say to his bereaved wife and
lamily? All that we could do in our
s'raightened circumstance to render him
comlortable was done. After he was ta
ken to the ho-pital he was cared for as well
as could be expected. 1 do not envy tne
position ol the fiend or. fiends who were the
cause ol forcing this poor old man from his
home and family and friends to die urn org
strangers. Frequently, after he became
very feeble, he would enquire it General
Couch had corne, as he anticipated a re
lease. Poor man, he is released from the
control of all earthly power, and will te
brought belore a Judge where justice is
meted out. Those wicked persons that
were instrn.Tietita! in bringing him here, it
uot dead to all feelii'gs ot common human
ity, must have bitter compunctions of con
i.., !U l.w.b- ., tl.:.t r.r
disconsolate family, whose support
comfort they have taken away. May God
in His mercy, forgive them.
This is considered a very unhealthy loca
tion, even out in the open air, and must be
much more so in this damp, close cell.
The effect is visible upon all.
Without even charges being preferred,
thirtyT-eight days to-day have elapsed suae
we were brought here. But only intending
to give an account of the death ofone of
the inmates of this cell, I will not trouble
you further, .hoping soon again to enjoy the
sacred boon of Libekty onr forefaihers
looght and suffered so ranch lo accomplish
If the present state of things continue, the
inestimable blessings of liberty will be
wrested from the people, and despotism
with its dark pall will settle over our once
happy country, which, may Heaven pre
vent. JiMES M HCNKT.
Old Frank Blair and the old Cat.
The " son of his father" told the Republi
cans at New-York that, "he. (old Frank)
has pa-sed that period of lii when its hon
ors or its rewards or its glories have any
charm for him. He looks back only and
forward only to the grandeur of this nation,
and the happiues.-s of the people who are
growing op under its prosperous Constitu
tion and Union, and he would not permit a
son of his to stand in the way of the recog
nition arid the support of the glorious and
patriotic President who aivr leads as on to
success, not for anything that this world
could have in store for him "
"This remind me of a story." An old
rat, once upon a time called his compan
ions about bim,and took a forma! and affec
tionate farewell ol them say ion that he was
about to take up his abode where the
"wicked cease from troubling and the wea
ry are at rest." Subsequently he was
found alive and kickir.2 in the centre of an
extensively large and rich old cheese.

the soldier, it is a matter of doubt whether
they are entitled to snch credit. The Dem

and as to the amendment of the Constitu

neither in the rapers or otherwise : many
had their fears about the matter, fearing
that, as three years ago, if a man went into
