Olivier stopped, seemed much confused, and finally re

Now mark me. lady- It is proved beyond doubt,
'that Cardillac did not go forth that night. The hen se

cannot be turned without,noise, and the door always
makes such a creaking that it Car be heard in the up

and look and bar the door tltrn go up stairs again to

usually very light, as is the case wide roost old people:
and this night he was nneommonly wakeful, The do-

midnight. He then went to bed, but had not been
asleep long, when he was awakened by hearing above
a stilled sound, as of a heavy body fallen on the floor, t l.s
noise of quick stops, and then groaning.. Both the old
people were alarmed; but they dared make no dis
turbance, till the dawn brought others to the house."
"Bat tell me,"asked Scuderi anxiously. "in all the
cfrentruitances, can you find clue to a motive for this
"Hem!" answered La "Cardillac was not
poor; ho had many valuable jiwels."
- "Was not his daughter to inherit his wealth? You
forget that Oliver was to be his son-in-law."
"But he may have committed the deed for others."
"For what others?" demanded Scuderi astonish

light. Cardillac's death -wound was precisely similar
to those inflicted by the secret band; and what is yet
stronger proof, since Olivier's imprisonment, no mur
ders have been perpetrated. The streets are secure by
aright as by dav, since he, who was doubtless at the
head of the band, has been arrested. Ile has confessed

Scuderi shuddered. "And Madelioar asked she.

Scuderi could have wept, though indignant; but she
saw that nothing would avail, not even viraie and mis
fortune, before this fearful man. "Be human!" was all
she said to him; and rising, she left his house. As she
wentdown the steps, whither the President with cere
monious courtesy attended her, a strange thought came
inLohe.r head; and turning to Le Regnie, she asked,

PHILLIPS & S3ll-TH, EDITORS AND PROPRIETORN
TSBUR(4II, TUESDAY AUGUST 8, 1843
SMALL NOTES. --it is cheering to those who cher
ish a heartfelt interest in the democratic cause, to ob
serve the constancy and determination with which - the
party adhere to their opposition to the attempts of the
Banks to obtain permission to issue notes of a less de
nomintition thin five dollars. LaSt winter, a propoi
don was introduced into the House of Representatives,
authorizing the issue of small notes, and we believe :it
was carded by the votes of certain of the Democratic
member.; it was, however, digitated in the Senate.
Among those who supported it, were Samuel Ker'r,
Esq., of Mercer, and D. B. Long, of Clarion. Their
reasons for sustaining-a measure so universally denoun
ced by the Democracy of the State, were no doubt suf
ficient and satisfactory to themselves; but it would seem,
from the result of the nominating conventions in thei
respective counties, that they were not saßsfactory to
those who sent them to Harrisburgh. Mr. Kerr was
a candidate fur the Congressional nomination in his,
county, and was defeated. Mr. Long was a candidatei
for re - nomination t o the Legislature,. and was defeats',
ed. We see by the papers, that the objection of hav
ing voted for small notes was openly urged against Mr.
Long, and presume it was a similar vote on the same .
(pleStifill which defeated, or assisted to defeat, Mr.
Kerr. They are both gentlemen of gre personal
worth—they have been known as devoted and active
democrats, during their whole politi ml lives, and as
far a; we know, had given, as representatives, no oth
er cause of dissatisfaction with their course than this
single malmoveme ut on the small note question.
While, as regards those gentlemen personally, we
can take no pleasure in their djeat, we rejoice that
their constituents had so much firmness and devotion to
principle, as to assert and maintain it, oven by the
painful alternative of denying Messrs. Kerr and Long,
for the present, at least, that approbation of their
course which a renominadon would imply.
When such men are calmly put aside by the party,
for a failure to maintain its principles or measures,
those whose claims are less substantial—whose services
have been rendered fur a shorter period, and whose
standing in the ranks is more questionable—will see
that their only safety consists in a firm adherence to
he know n and principles and measures of
the party. It cannot fail to have a salutary effect on
those whose political firmness and consistency are now
being tested—and will warn representative s never to
abandon a well settled principle of the party, at any
solicitation, however urgent, nor for ass- reasons, how
ever speciou s and plausible; even if backed up by a
formidable looking petition. Su •h papers can be got
up on the spur of the moment in any time of political
calm, and representatives should weigh them well be
fore complying, with their rsquests,—e specially when
they know that to comply they must depart from the
path tile party had been pursuing.
INDIVIDVAL LIABILITY.—We have frequently ex•
pressed our strong conviction that the adoption of this
principle in every bank charter,—if le
continue to disregard their duties, and confer on
certain bodies of men—should be resolutely insisted
0:) by dl those opposed to griming charters of incorpo
ration Ibr Apertdatillg purpose:. The justice and the
rainless of the principle must he acknowledged by eve
ry man who professes to bold democratic doctrines,
and we observe with pleasure that the party will tint be
content with simply asserting the proposition, but will
require it tole rigidly netedon by every man who may
be hereafter elevated to office by the Democratic par
ty. Among the many disgraceful doings at lard,-
burzh last winter, we know of untie more pernicious
and hurtful to the people than the re-charter of certain
banks without making the stockholders personally lia
ble, to the extent of their means, for every dollar their
respective institutions might issue. Until this is done
—until banking is made a business of equal risk with
other avocations—until mere are convinced that the
malmanag,ement of a bank in which they may be con
cerned,involves not only the loss of the amount they-have
ventured,but of all they have in the world besides—there
is no security for their correct m anagement--nothing to
prevent the people from being plucked and plundered
as they have always been, by bank extravagance and
bank failures. The subject must be kept before the
people—it is one of the mast important that has ever
been presented to them.
ARREST OF PIRITES.—We learn from the N. V.
Tribune of Friday, that David Babe awl Geo. Mat
thews, two of the pirates recently belonging to the Sa
rah Lavinia, were arrested in that city on Wednesday,
and are now in custody of the Marshal. They are both
young men; Babe is said to be a native of England and
Matthews belongs to Maryland. They have an ac
complice named Webster who has not been arrested,
and is supposed to have gone to Philadelphia.
The pirates landed near Newport (R. I.) on Satur
clay the 29th tilt.; came to Newport, staid over Sunday
and next day started for New York, pursued by the
Deputy Sheriffio(New Bedford. The pirates left a bag
of clothes on board the MasAachusetts, whiCh was ex
amined and found to contain articles belonging to the
captain and mate, some of them having been recently
washed but still wet, and bearing upon them, apparent
ly, the marks of blood. A man after the arrival of the
boat, went on board with a ticket to get the bag, by
which means the residence of the pirates was discover
ed. Matthews was arrested forthwith, and Babe a
short time afterwards, the latter being absent when the
officers arrived at the house. They were separately
conducted on hoard the steamboat and interrogated.—
Ma tthews at first denied all knowledge of the tra.nsac
tion. He afterwards said that Babe called Webster,
the cook, and himself upon the forecastle, told them
that the captain and mate had become engaged in a
scuffle, and bad fallen overboard—that Babe than took
charge of the vessel. id

A GLANCE AT THE OLD WORLD.
THE PEEL Mns ISTR Y--THIERS—PALMERSTON—
We sonic days since gave an article on the position
ofSir Robert Peel, and his disposition to adapt him
self as much as possible to the necessities of the times.
We have been greatly confirmed in this view, by a pe
rasa! of our files by the last steamer. Some people
cherish, the opinion that the Peel Ministry will be of
short duration. Judging from the expressions of the
London press, and indee some of the opposition lead
ers, the popular mind of Great Britain is not yet pre
pared for a return to power of the Whig Ministers.—
Conservatism seems to have acquired an ascendancy
fin the time, as well in England as in France. The
property holders of the middle classes have become
alarmed at the frequent convulsions, and are disposed
tiii submit to the evils of a strong aristocratic Govern
ment, rather than be subjected the perils of revolution.
M. Thiene, the master spirit of the discontented pol
iticians in France, has lost much of his influence. Louis
Phillippe has completely out-manceuvred him. The
Soult-Guizot Ministers occupy in Franco pretty much
the same position that the Peel-Wellington Ministers
occupy in England. The two powers are adverse to
conflict with each other, and are anxious to strengthen
:the foundations of the Monarchies—they endeavor to
conciliate, arafas fares possible to act in harmony with
the other great powers of Europe. While they move
on in this way and in a spirit of peace, they also en
deavor to consult the wishes of the intelligent classes,
to respect the rights ofproperty, to assist the national
prosperity, and to avoid a convulsion in Europe. Of
course, England and France continuo to watch, and to
exhibit jealousy of each other. But there seems to be a
better understanding between die Premiers of the two
countries, than between the leculingjournal s of Paris and
London. Thus, to read some oftheir speculations which
am put forth in the French capital, England and France
are on the eve of a crisis. Bitterness and animosity
exist between them, and bloodshed will soon follow.
The Ministers, doubtless, understand public affairs
much better, and while they smile at the outpourings
of passion and prejudice, endeavor to yield as much as
possible to popular feeling, without disturbing the
More essential relations of amity between the powers
which they respectively represent.
Mr. Walsh, in one of his letters to the National Intel
ligencer, states that neither the Chambers. journals no.
public, are vet disposed, or in any r.:peet prepared,
to welcome 'liners back to the Premiershili. He adds:
"If either he or Lord Paltnerston should regain power
all Europe would at once arm anew. The sentiment
is Common to all the nations, that if either had any
longer held ir, a general war would have been inevita
ble.. Lord Palmerston feels this, if we may judge
front die following candid passage of his speech on the
:23d inst. on the Irish Arms bill:
'il Ie did not ask honorable gentlemen opposite to re
tir._ from their places. [Ministerial cheers.] Such
an appeal, he believed would he vain; and from the
feeling which they had seen evinced in this country, he
believed that even if honorable gentlemen should yield
to the appeal, they miAt very reasonably expect that
theti would be %cry shortly n gai a required to resume the
reins olgoyernment. (!'hirers.] The tim e was not yet

benches opposite could, with advantage to the public,
and with the general cowurrotie .. of 111- peopl e of this

though as till:1!_!; wen , goiee on, the growing dissatis
faetion among Cite friend; of the government, and that
want,ofeontentment with its measures amongst its op
ponents which w'j occasionally exhibited, it might be
taken that certain indication s existed that the days
of the present administratio n were finite, he would not
say munbtacd.[clivers.j as yet it was not probable that
any change could be ellected in the gover!nment of this
country. [Ministerial cheering.]"
The above, it will be seen,
heretofore strengthenA our view RS
given. But how, it may be asked, will Peel I
get rid of the Irish Tiost ion 1 I low will lie soothe the 1
Repeaters 1 Perhaps he holds to the doctrine that suf
' ticient for the day is the evil tic reef, and having adopt
all lovrautionar2,- measures, he is waiting fur further
demonstration s of Mr. O'Connell, determined to act
(atm-cis ely, only when compelled to do so through the
tierce of circumstances. The trisk of Mr. O'Connell
is undoubtedly one of great ditneult‘i. Ile has pr,.
diced an immense excitement—h e 'has raised a tn.
Illl'ado us storm—h e has promised Repeal this year and
with great cohfidenee. Hew will he redeem his prom
ise ? Time will she w. As conneted with European
affairs, We give the following interesting passages from
the Paris correspondent already quoted:
"In ills report of the recent meeting in Londo n of
the Peac- Convention, Mr. Ilindley, a member of Par
liament,makes the armexed statement in reference to
the occupation of Tahiti by the French:—'l presided at
a inceting at Exeter Hall on the subject, and brought
from it a memorial to Lord AlLnileen; but we were too
late, as the French governmen t had already adopted
the act oftheir admiral. Lord Aberdeen, in the course
of the interview, admitted that tile case was one of
great importance, and might possibly at some time or
other lead to a war with France.'
"The orator adds:—'What at all events could be more
foolish than for England to go to war with Fiance on
any such account ?' I atn sure that Lord Aberdeen,
equally with every man of common SCIISO, must enter
tain the same Opinion, arid I am therefore surprised that
he admitted even the posgi bait
. y. The satisfaction at
Lord Pultnerston's overthrow seemed to me so gener
al on arcolint .of his belligerent propensities that, if the
lirlg s should reinstate trieniselves, they would hardly.
I think, venture to assign to horn his old position and
sway in the Government. No party (I repeat it) in
Great Britain is inclined to hostilities either with Eu
rope or America. So far, the Peace Convention, ex
cellent in its main object, was not necessary there at
.itlaei lire. But the Paris paper,the Constitutione/
(organ of the left centre,) is wrong in its remarks that
the Irish question settles that of a foreign war for Eng
land, and in its exclamation, "What a temptation
fur France, America or Russia!" On a strong prov
ocation, such as would rouse the national pride or ex
cite any one of the characteristic national sensibilities
of England, Co Cabinet could hesitate to embark in a
foreign war.' Great Britain has now, with whatever
domestic embarrassment, more means of every des
cription to do mischief to the world by war than any
other Power, or, perhaps, coalition of Powers. She
might, by the excitement and operations incident to
it, find a remedy in it for most of those embarrass
ments. The Ministry might contrive to send Irish Re
peelers and Welsh Rebeceaites to fight abroad.—
Doubtless Sir Robert Peel deems the Irish case se
rious; he is lees alarmed, however, about the issue than
the French politicians presume. In regard to a rup
ture with England, Algeria is for France a difficulty
nearly equivalent to the Irish problem of the former--
The topic of Algeria is cautiously handled in the report
of die committee of the Deputies on the budgets.

LATER FROAI KINGSTON, JAMAICA.
By the arrival at Philadelphia of the schooner Curren
cy, Captain Sharp, the United States Gazette has re
ceived advices from Cape Haytien fuur days later, and
from Kingston, Jamaica, ten days later, but learn noth
ing of interest except the following, from the Jamaica
Despatch of the I Ith ult.:
By an arrival from Hayti, we learn that a French
Admiral, with five ships, composing- two fifties, a sloop
of war; a brig; and a schooner had arrived there. The
precise object of this visit is not generally known; but
coupling it with the late transactions there, but little
doubt can be entertained on the subject. We are aware
of the fact of France having been solicited to take Hay
ti tinder her protection; or, in other words, the Havtien s
are,.wishful to return to their allegiance; and we know
that despatche s were sent to France some time ago by
the French Commander in Chief in these seas for in
structions. By the treaty with Franc; Hayti is bound
to pay a heavy sum for her independence; and, if we mis
take not, she is about to pay the penalty of the bond.
One of the fifties will be down to-day, when prubo'
we shall hear more about it.
iRELAND.—We learn by the English papers, tha
Mr. Smith O'Brien had given notice in the House of
Commons of zi motion "for a committee to inquire into
the causes of discontent at present prevailing in Irelane
with a review to the address of grievances, and to the
establishmen t of such a system of just and impartial
goverment as shall for the future leave no ground fur
well-grounded complaint on the part of the Irish peo
ple." This motion stood for the 11th of the present
month, and would doubtless give rise to a very imp or
twit discussion on Irish affairs.

of the preceding;;
"Abandoned women, animated masses of human
commtion. drunkards of the lowest order, were in at
tendance: the selling of liquo r to persons of all sexes,
with cursing, en caring, pushing and bawling were go
ing on, while the minister veils praying and the piously
iaclined were shouting. Bench after bench gave way
and came down with tremendous crashes, the ropes
which fastened the marque to the stakes were either
cm by some of the rowdies, or gave way; and a flurry
of wind at the time hurled the canopy to the ground.
"Among the number present were some bullies from
the tipp er part of the city. one of whom made an at
tack on a young man who was in company with two
young ladies, when a combat immediately ensued be
tweeu them, which resulted in the bully receiviug
sound thrashing; he was led away by his comrades
blind from the repeated blows he received about the
"The piously inclined persons were prevented from
continuing their worship, by the licentious gathering,
and towards nightfall thousands rushed to the steam
boat landing, eager to return to the city' the moment
the boat touched the slip it was densely crowded in a
few moments, to such a degree that the captain was tum
ble to collect the fare from all his passengers. There
were many persons benighted notwithstanding all sorts
of boats, from sloops down to small skiffs, were em
ployed to bring the crowd over. The railing in front
of the slip was broken down, and at this time a scene
took place which almost transcends our ability to de
pict. Women screamed and fainted, several more
tights occurred in which one man was thrown into the
river three times; volley after volley of oaths rended
the expanse above—an infant in the arms of a resident
of New Jersey who war returning, from the city, was
met by the crowd and the poor little thing was crushed
apparently to death."
GEO. .Mcsns r.—A correspondent of the Philadel
phia Chronicle in noticing arrivals at Saratoga Springs
gives the following notice of Geo. Alunday:
1 "He is the same short little fellow, wi
• nu hat, short bristles on his upper li th long hair,
p. suare off on
• a fine parallel with its edge, a long beard, cut
and like oth
er gentlemen, without a vest—his hand was full of pa
pers called the "Voice of the Prophet."
In the course of his conversation, on preaching- among
the crowd, he said that "All lawyers are liars—Aaron
Burr was a lawyer--Nicholas Biddle was a lawyer."
Here *gentleman by the name of P----, I believe from
Philadelphia, demanded of him—"who made you our
judges?" To which George replied in the words of
inspiration--"Wo unto you lawyers," &c. Another
gentleman then said— -"I am a lawyer and a professing
Christian too, and I try to practice the precepts tlf Chris
tianity." "Would you,' said George, "advocate the
cause of a plaintiff against the defendant in a case of
murder?" "I suppose I should, if applied to."—
"Then you are no Christian," said George, "War unto
you lawyers, hypocrites, &c.
They now entered upon the argument of capital pun
ishenent, and the crowd gathered round to listen to their
sage reasoning on this subject; the one used the
words of Scripture, and the other wielding the law._.
Both claimed the victory.
The band continued playing at the springs, rather
lazily, however, in con
