BALTIMORE & OHIO RAIL ROAD COWAN Y.—We
noticed, sometime since, the partial and unjust course
pursued by the Baltimore and Ohio Rail Road Compa
ny, in charging a Stage Line that runs from this city
two dollars more on each passenger, than is charged
the lines that run from Wheeling. The extent to which
this inj nitice is carried, makes it apparent that they not
only desire to break up the Express Line—n•g ard!ess
of their former promises—butte do all io their power
to turn the tide of travel from our city. Mr. Header
sonralihe of Stages was established with a clear under
stand* with the President of the Rail Road, that he
shoild have the same privileges as the other lines run
flint' iais the National Road, and when it was supposed
he tin:ended to withdraw his Stages, Mr. .McLane ur
ged him to continue, as it was necessary to keep the
ether lines in check. The following certificate will
show the reasons which induced the proprietors of the
Express Line to forMa connexion with the Rail Road :
"We, the undersigned, do certify being present at a
conversation between President 'McLane and A. Hen
derson, in the gentlemen's pallor of the Exchange Ho
tel; Baltimore, on the evening of 14th ofJuly last, and
heard President McLane assure the said Henderson
he wawa not charge him more on the Railroad than
Five Dollars on the Passengers of the Express Line,
to and from Pittsburgh. But provided the Line was
extended to Wheeling, he would be libund to give them
(the National Road and Good Intent Stage Compa
nies) the protection of two dollars on the Wheeling pas
sengers—at the same time solicited A. Henderson not
to sell, but continue—stating, if he sold they would have
=anorthic with the Stage Lines, (National Road and
Good Intent) than they had heretofore—further that
th "'wished him on another account, as he had influence
with the citizens of Pittsburgh, which the other lines
hat trot; and if he erred in anything, it was in not giv
lag the Pennsylvania Stage men the contract.
Given under Our hand and s , -al this ‘23th day of Au
A. BYERS, Uniontown, [l.. s.]
JAS. SAMPEY,Mt. Washington,[l. s.]
Under dteiie 'assurances Mr. Henderson's line was
litilied; but the old lines have been able to make it
appear to the sordid feelings of the Railroad Company,
theta giving the Pittsburgh an equal privilege with the
other tines, they were doing an injury to themselves,
ante although no substantial reason can be given for
811640 opinion, it has been made the plea for violating
theprthnise made to the Express Line, and commit
tin,gthe injustice of charging travellers who visit Pitts
buOi two dollars more than those who start from
That this extraordinary course is adopted fur the
ingpose of injuring Pittsburgh, we have not a doubt.
Ali the rnitirepresentaticins and vile falsehoods of the
enemies of our city, have failed in turning travellers
from our route, and the last and basest device by which
hey hope to accomplish it, is evinced in the imposition
Elk* Of two dollars on all travellers, who from choice
orltecersity, take the Pittsburgh route.
• We are glad to see that this unjustifiable conduct on
the part of the Company, has called forth the condem
nation of the citizens of Maryland. We learn from the
Cutiabarland Gazette, that at one of the hugest tneet
inmates- held in that place, its course was condemned
as "IMPWlitic, illegal and unjust." We extract from the
proimiedlogi Ohe following resolutions, with a view of
showing the opMion entertained of this matter by the
people of Maryland, and the tendency of such a regu
"Resolved, That we denounce the late regulation of
thoitallimore and Ohio Rail Road Company, ler ving
a tax . of two dollars per head upon the members of finis
icotriuititilty, and upon the passengers by the Express
Limint Stages, as impolitic, illegal and unjust.
Resolved, That we regard such regulation as tend
ing; M . Meate a Monopoly, which, in its operation, will
betio tnOnstrous as to drive off all competition from the
GrtCentral Route, and compel travellers to pay such
rafes:'.tis the Rail .R oad Company, the National Road
Stige . COMpany, aedthe Good Intent Stage Company
map choose to dictate, or in the other event, to abandon
thiilitie of travel altogether.
Resolved; That we sincerely sympathise with the
projorietors of the proscribed Line, and that our a:su
.Tru:PdO Of such 'tiympathy be extended towards them."
If the citizens of Pittsburgh, and travellers, who,
from inclination or business, are compelled to take our
city in their route to the east, must pay a tariff of two
&Nati, for the privilege of traveling on the Baltimore
ami . .9hio Rail Road, it is time that the people. of our
city 101 . state should take some steps to counteract the
,die efforts of our enemies.
rin . 'Sigtor of the ;Boston Post is so much in love
with a certain Doc* Squash, on accoimt of his notions
of Puseyisna, that he thinks of surfing a small congre
station for him.

EXECUTION OF TWO SLAVES, A MAN AND WO
SIAN —FRIGHTFUL CON STERN ATLI/N.—Oa Friday.`2.sth
ult., in pewees District, S. C., the two slaves found
guilty of the murder of Mrs. Garrett, were executed
according to sentence. Three or four thousand peo
ple were present. The woman confessed her guilt,
penitent, said she deserved death, and that she
was instigated to, and assisted in, committing the
deed, by the negro man, Randall, all of which he
positively denied, and was as stubborn as a mule to
th last. A spectator says it was truly effecting to
see four little children belonging to the guilty woman.
two pair of twins, none of them old enough to walk.
She told her husband, children, and oth:r negroes to
take warning from her fate, how they listened to the
advice of evil doers. At precisely ono o'clock the
plank was knocked from under them, and they were
launched into eternity. After they had hung about
five minutes, from some cause there seemed to be a
panic in the crowd, when the cry of "inad-dog,"
-earthquake," &c., was raised by some mischiev
ous person, and a general rush of the spectators took
place, running in every direction-and over one another,
horses breaking loose and dashing through the crowd,
crippling wt;nl:nl and children, and several of the latter
separated and lost from their parents, but providential
ly no lives were lust. The writer describes the scene
as nwliul all , l iu the extreme, reminding him
of a toffitie t,nundo. In 15 or ? 0 !lOWA, order
:14 tin restored, iciti the criminals were cut down.—
DrunkenneiA and rioting prevailed around the village
in the evening.—Ball. Su u.
STIMULANTS OF GREAT MEN.—It is iatcr:stiag to
notice al" different articles which have be in taken by
eminent mm, at stimulants to the mental faculties. It
it interesting, at showing how diametrically opposite
nn3 may produce the same eihict in various systems;
and it is interesting as showilig how much the mind
sym i iathizes with the body. Haller drank plentifully
of water wb ahe wish d f great activity of the brain;
Fox. for the same purpose used brandy. The stimu
lants of Newton and Hobbes were the fumes of tobacco;
those of Pope and Fonteaelli_!, strong coffee. Dr.
Johnson, at one period of his life, wits a great wine
drinker, but in the latter part of it found strong tea a
gold D it it said iv is written un
der the influence of gin and water, Mai it is reported
that a certain legal lord, of great learning and talent,
plies himmif hard with port when he wishes to shine.—
Pitt was a great drinker of wine; Sheridan, alto, was
fond of his bottle. Dr. Paris tells us, that when Mr.
Dunning wished to make an extratmlinary display of
elquence, he always ruts a blister on his chett a feu'
JUN before he was to speak, in order that it might ir
ritate the brain by sympathy during his speech.
Rr:Cot.urlox. is CONIMKRCE.--Mr. Wirmtun, the
accomplished Minister of the Ul.ited States at Or:
Court. of Berlin, has W rit ten a long letter to the Na
ti.mal Inititute of IVashingtori, na what is termed the
"Impeadiat: r,r..oluti.iiis in the cum:net-vial intercourse
of the 1V.,r!,1,." Two great changes, he sacs, are at
11:tial, which cannot fail to be attended with the most
important consequences to the progress of civilization.
lit. Tipa ro-oponing of the ancient route butween
Emopo and the East Indies, by Egypt and th_:. Red
Sea, which must inevitably result from the improve
ments in steam navigation and the founding a ncw
Mahommedan dynasty on the banks of the Nile.
21. Th., upeniag of a new route from Europe and
the United States to the East Indies and the Western
coasts of America, by an artificial communication be
tween the Atlantic aud Pacific me ins, across the isth
mus which connects the two continents . of North and
Smith America. The importance of these to the Uni
ted States and the world, is argued at length, and
considerable learning. Of the latter it is remarked:
"The United States would save at least 10,000 miles
of distance and a proportionate amount of time in
their navigation to the Northwest coast of America
and to China, by substituting tit, rout: across the is
thmus which connects the two Atnerican continents,
for that round Cape Horn. The opening a water-com
munication from one sea to the other, somewhere be
tween die Gulf of Mexico and the Gulf of Darien, dins
becomes of vital importance to us—Our national in
terests, commercial, political, and social, are all deep
ly involved itt the question."
LAZINESS.—The laziest man we ever heard of,
was described MA follows, to a friend of ours, by an old
buly in Coweta county, (la.:
"Perhaps you don't know Zeke Gibbons, what lived
down here on West Fork. IYell, he was the laziest
man you ever 'lewd tell of. When he and his wife got
married, they had a pretty good chance of truck between
'ctn. But Zeke was tuo lazy to make crops, and so every
thing went to rack and ruin. Zeke's wife was aright
smart %imam so she told him one day he'd got to go to
work. 'Can't you plough?' says she. 'Don't know
how?' says Zeke. 'Well I'll show you.' So she geared
the boas, put him in the plough herself, and took Zeke
and led him to it, and put his hands on the plough han
dle, and do you think the lazy critter didn't stand there,
without stirring an inch, till the calves cat all his coat
THE WARREN MURDER TRIAL.
This interminable trial that, "like a woundal snake,
still drags its slow length along" is far from an end vet.
The evidence is of the dullest kind, however, and proves
nothing against the prisoner, although public opinion
is decidedly arrayed in favor of his guilt. Cornelius
Sle rea r (—deposed that he was one of the appraisers of
Parl:e's propel ty. Imlay Drake was the other. We
found $5,625.372 in the house—aver $3OOO in bank
notes, about $l/5 in gold, the balance silver. Found
no paper on the New Hope and I)el. Bridge Co. Batik.

The remaining evidence for the State was alone ex
pected to occupy the rest of this week.—Phila. S. P.
COBOETT ON DUELLING.—Cobbett, when challen
ged to fight, recommended the challenger to draw a
Cobbect in chalk upon the door, and if he succeeded in
hitting it to bead him instant word, in order that he
might have an opportunity of acknowledging that had
the true Cubbeu been there, he, in all probability, would
have been kit too. But hit or no bit, he maintained,
the bullets could have no efrect whatever on the origi
nal cause of quarrel.
