Our social condition is replete with the elements of
disorder. The connection between landlord and ten

legislation, wants that mutual confidence which is es

We have applied in vain to the legislature for re

URIAL OF ANTOINE GEISLER, AT RIVER
The prisoner is aGerman; and was placed upon his
trial on Wednesday, charged with the murder of Alex.
Smith and his wife, at Huntington, on the 12th of No
vember last. Mr. Smith and his wife were discover
edhy one of the neighbors in their sitting room, lying
on the floor, having evidently been murdered. They
were an aged couple. They each had several wounds
on the head, evidently inflicted by a stone hammer
which lay on a chest in the room. Mr. Smith was ly
ing near the fire place, half burnt up, his legs and a por
tkm oehis body being destroyed. The desli t %, was open
when the bodies were discovered. The prisoner had
' - been hired about a fortnight previous to work for Mr.
Smith, and resided in the house with the old couple, as
did also a young girl named Mary Ann Abbot. A
fierce dog was usually kept about the premises, but he
had been fastened up in the shop. He had always'
been kept by Mr. Smith at night, in his own room.—
The hammer did not belong to the family.
• it appears from the testimony that Geisler was at
the house of a neighbor the day before the murder, and
enquired the way to the shipping. He spoke of Mr.
Smith as having money, and said he meant to stay
with him. The girl left the house on a visit, two days
before the murder. Gesler could not speak English.
He was seen, it was stated, on the evening of the mur
deriptiasing a road to the eastward, and going quite
fast. Ho was arrested neat day in a barn where he
slept through the night, and had but ten cents in his
d There was a small spot of blood on his shirt, which
he accounted for as coming from a wound on his
knuckle, which he said had been caused by some corn
stalks; there was also a bruise on his knee, and a rent
in the knee of his pantaloons, which he said he had re
. calved by a fill in the barn. This is the whole of the
casearid the testimony.
The points of the case were summoned up by re
spective counsel on Friday afternoon, after which
.Tudgis Ruggles delivered the charge of the Jury. his re
marks occupying nearly an hour. At half past 3, P. H.
the Jury retired, and remained out till half past 9,
when they returned into Court, declaring that there

The Court refused to discharge them, and they again

IrT" The Gazette is very indignant because we ex
pressed the opinion that the rojec:ion of Stevens and his
"tail," by the late coon convention foreshows the spee
dy death of distinctive Antimasonry. We do not mar
vel that thc Gazette should feel acutely on this subject;
upon the fate of distinctive Antimasonry the Gazette
has staked all its political hopes, and having desperate
ly resolved to "stand the hazard of the die," it is much
annoyed by allusions to any circumstance which would
indicate that the game will terminate fatally for its
The Gazette, in order to infuse new life and spirit
into the desponding hearts of those who arc making a
last stand for the "blessed spirit," tights all the battles
of Antimasonry o'er again, and endeavors to rouse and
rally its forces by boasting of its former victories. The
Gazette says that "in an evil hour, in the contest of 1840,
"Antimasons lost sight, in a great measure, of the cause
"which brought them into existence." And yet with
all the Gazette's rant and fustian about Antimasonic
victories, it was only in this "evil hour" that ever they
were able to beat the democrats of Pennsylvania. In
1833, when Ritner was elected, tho democrats were
beaten by their own clizsensions, not by the force of An-
It is an error to suppose, as the Gazette seems to do,
that the Post "rejoices" over the decease of Antima
sonry. We have nu feeling on the subject whatever.
The whigs. the only party formidable to the Democra
cy, still retain considerable strength, and keep up an
efficient organization in every State in the Union. If
they have not so much power, they evince as much
vigor as they ever did, and their total and complete dis
comfiture would give real and renewe•l cause of "rejoic
ing." But the death of political Antimasonry is a tri
fling event in the history of national politics; we are not
aware that there is a single exclusive Antimasonic
member in either house of Congress, and judging from
the quietness they maintained in relation to any thing
that would advance exclusive Antimasonry, we might
conclude there were none in our last legislature. Of
what account, then, is such a party in national politics;
and ;what oz.asiun for "rejoicing" does their dissOt
The vehamantaal repeated assurances of the Gazette
that political Antimammy is not yet dead, is more a
matter for amusement thilo alarm. If Antimasons are
vizerous and numerous as the Gazette would have
us believe, why is it that its furem champion and
leader,Thaddeus Stevens, was scornfully ejected from a
convention composed of men over whom he once ruled
with iron sway? How does it coma that the whigs,
upon whom he has visited his tyranny and contumely
for years, have become powerful enough to dictate to
him the banner and the articles of war under which he
shall fight, if he fights on their side? It is much easi
er to boast of what Antimasons will do, than to tell us
why they failed to procure Stevens a seat in the late
It i 3 no matter of special "rejoicing," then, that po
litical Antitnasonry is standing with one foot in the
grave, and that it will fall bodily into the yawning abyss
on the 10th of October next. It is in the nature of
things, that this political stalking horse should dic
it has already lived to the full age of such humbugs, and
its death is as certain as any event can possibly be.—
The rejection of Stevens was a circumstance which in
dicated its sudden and total downfall, with unerring
clearness—and as such it must be received, despite the
Gazette's spasmod is effort to reassure the faltering few
visho follow its torn and trailing banner.
CANAL COM MISSIOIVERS.—Sume of the federal or
gans have already commenced a warfare upon the
democratic candidates for Canal Commissioners. We
have read a long article in the Beaver Argus of the
13th, in which a most desperate effort,is made to say
something very severe against Messrs. CLARKE, MIL-
Lcrt, and FosrEn. The first named gentleman receives
a mare special notice than either of his colleagues,
and a general charge of making the public works a 'po
litical engine . ' while formerly in office, is preferred a
gainst him. This will be news indeed, for the people,
for it is the first time that such a charge has ever been
brought against J AMES CLARKE. He has held the of
fice of Canal Commissioner when party feeling and
party rancor were at the highest; when federal slanders
and falsehoods were paid for by the score, but even
then a mendacious opposition never dared to assail his
official conduct, or insinuate a charge against him. He
has been connected with the public works from their
commencement down to the present day, and in every
Situation that he has filled he has given satisfaction to
But the charge of making the public works a "po
i litical engine," comes with good grace from the fede
t ral journals. Have they forgotten the open and abso
lute fraud and plunder that was committed in 1838,
lunder a federal Board of Commissioners? Have they
forgotten—or do they think the people have forgot—
the manner in which the Treasury was robbed, and the
state run in debt, at that period, to purchase votes for
the federal candidate. The audacity with which the
most corrupt and atrocious acts were committed, will
make the election of that year long a memorable event
in the political history of our state. The manner in
which such wretches as the Stonebreakers were per
mitted to gorge themselves on the public treasury, for
the most infamous services ever rendered to a party,
cannot be forgotten; and whenever the public works
are spoken of as a "political engine," the people must
recur to the time when they were in the hands of the
federalists, and used for the purpose of buying up the
vile and corrupt from all quarters. Mr. Meat Y, the
presort federal candidate for Congress in the Beaver
district, was one oftbe cotaraigsioners at the time we
refer to, and must have felt some witchings of con
science on reading the article in his organ. If the Ar
gus wants to hear the history of a "band of official
plunderers," let it apply to that gentleman, and we
warrant he can unfold a tale that will far exceed in in
famy any of the more recent doings of federalism.
The truth is, our opponents know not how to assail
the democratic candidates for Canal Commissioners.—
' They are so unexceptionable in every respect; are so
well known to the people; have served the public with
so much honesty and efficiency, that malignant calum
ny cannot find a tangible blemish in their characters to
assail. It is all labor lost for thefederal journals to at
tack Messrs. CLARKE, FOSTER and MlLLER,—their
worth is too well known for slander to effect them, or
for federali,ism to hope that the people will reject them,
to place in power men who would restore the infamous
system of fraud and corruption, that characterized the
management of our public works, when last in the
hands of the Whigs.
OCR CANDIDATE FOR PROTHONOTART.—The Am
erican gives a copy of a handbill, in relation to Mr.
RIDDLE, which the editor says he found in Elizabeth,
and the authorship of which ho eagerly ascribes to
members of the democratic party. It is a complaint of
the manner in which Mr. Riddle was nominated,declar
ing that he succeeded through the undue interference
of "lawyers," and an attack upon his character as a
This handbill carries upon its very face evidence
that it is a federal device, and thnt no man who has
any claim to the name of democrat, would have any
hand in the publication of a thing so vile. The simple
fact that it is anonymous, is proof enough that it comes
from political enemies of the candidate attacked. If
the charges it prefers were true, no democrat would
feel it necessary that he should publish them anony
mously. No member of the democratic party, who
knew the matters set forth in that handbill to be facts,
would havea moment's hesitation in giving them to the
world over his own name.
Ids a base insult to the Democrats who met in Conven
tion on the 30th ult.—such an insult as only a vindic
tive political enemy would conceive—to say that they
could be influenced to support an unworthy candidate
by the intervention of city "lawyers"—or any other set
of men. It is clear that the stupid author of this most
silly handbill thought lie was writing of a convention of
coons, where a fair expression of opinion might ho
kept down by city intriguers; hut he little knows the
firm, honest, and intelligent men who compose demo
cratic conventions, or he would not presume to say that
they could be induced to depart one step front what
they felt to he their duty.
The blind malignity with which this anonymous hand
bill attacks Mr. Riddle's character as a Democrat, de
feats its own object. George Riddle has been as con
sistent a Democrat. and one as warmly and fearlessly
devoted to his party and its principles, as any other man
in our ranks And the endeavor to show that he is any
thin; else is only deserving of most sovereign con
tempt. We world advise these federal publishers of
anonymous handbills, to be a little inure prudent in their
future efforts, and always to keep probability in view.
Nsw it is exceedingly imprudent to insult democratic
delegates and their constituents by saying that they
would be tools for any set of men under the sun. And
in endoavoting to prove G. R. Riddle a Whig, as ,i.b
o!itionist, and an Antimason, they only make thlin
selves ridiculous, and raise laughter at the shallowness
of their inventive powers. We trust they will keep
these things in view.
"LAW AND ORDFR."—Riot and bloodshed appear
to be the order of Ut day in the "city of brotherly
love." The Forinn of the 11th says that two of the
fire companies nt 3 o'clock, on Saturday morning, had
a disgraceful fight in the neighborhood of Fifth and
Race st. The supposition is that these companies turn
ed out expressly for the purpose, is their rop 's were
maned with great Strength, which is something unu
sual in its occurrence at that early Inur. The fight
was carried on with clubs, and brick bats were obtain
ed in abundance from a pile in front of a building
which is being altered. Oae man received a blow in
his mouth with a crank which had been taken from one
of the hose carriages. He was conveyed into the hous
of a physician near by in a dangerous condition. His
head was cut open and several of his teeth knocked
out. Several watchmen were severely beaten.and the
house of a resident was stoned by the mob, because a
man, who was in a fair way of being killed, took re
fuge in it. Life, property, and every thing we deem
valuable, seems to be in a very precarious situation.
The Police of Philadelphia must certainly be very
deficient, or these almost daily riots would not occur.
In all the accounts, we find that the police make a
weak effort at first to suppress the riot; some two or
three of them get severely beaten, and then they with
draw, leaving the mob in full possession of the field, to
fight until they get tired of breaking each others' heads,
and destroying the surrounding property. No subse
quent efforts are made to punish the ruffians, and they
stalk through the streets with the most insolent assu
rance, boasting of their prowess in the fight, and bid
ding defiance to the agents of the law. In one sense
Philadelphia is certainly a "city of brotherly love," for
its Police are too tender hearted to inflict punishment
on the most ruthless ruffians that outrage the laws, and
place in jeopardy the lives and property of the citizens.
RELEASE OF THE SLAVE AT ALBANY. — The decis
ion in the ease of the women brought before the author
ities at Albany, is thus noticed by the Evening Jour
nal: "It [the decision] at length arrived, directing the
Sheriff to inform the slave that she was at liberty to re
turn to her master or remain at the North—in fact, that
she was free. She chose not to return, and left the
jail, escorted by a host of citizens who cheered her and
her escort mast enthusiaitically. We understand that
the ground upon which the Judge came to his decision
was, that as her master had brought her to this State,
she could not be considered under the Constitution as
a fugitive from another State, and that in consequence
under our own State law she was free. Had she esca
ped from another State and been arrested in this, a con
trary decision would have been the result. This de
cision and the grounds upon which it is based, are un
questionably correct. If Southern gentlemen bring
their slaves to New York, they must do so at their own
risk. By our laws they are FREE as soon as they
reach New York soil. So will our Courts, Juries,and
last, though not least, our People uniformly decides"
TAXING IT COOLLY.—Speaking of the recent robbe
ry of the Milbury Bank, the Worcester Spy says that
on the 28th, immediately after the report of the robbe
ry was noised abroad, Jeremiah Learned went and
presented $BOO in Milbury Bank bills to the cashier
for payment, on pretence that the report would have an
unfavorable effect on the credit of the bank. The cash
ier paid him the amount in other funds, and soon after
Abijah came with $BOO more. The cashier hesitated
some time about paying him, but finally he consented
to receive $lOO for his present purposes, and wait a
day. or two for the remainder. Learned has siIICO been
arrested as one of the robbers.
"OR! 'WRAY A FALL," &C.—BYRON ie Bening up
turtle soup in Saint Louis.
rp- The laborers of New York held a meeting on
the Illth inst. for the purpose of devising some means
to ensure them a fair remuneration for their labor.
The amount of specie in the New York Banks'
at the present time, exceeds fourteen millions of dol
!lars, a sum quite unparalleled. The accounts from
various parts of the country give the same gratifying
intelligence of returning prosperity. The following is
from the New Orleans Courier.
"The system established for some time in New Or
leans, is the safety valve of commerce. Operations
may be reduced to a lower scale,-bet they will he more
secure; and it must be admitted, at the time when all
that was necessary to discount a note was to emit it, that
it was easy for a man possessed of a few thousand dol
lars of capital, to operate upon an enormous and base
less credit, without any other representative than the
hope of doubling, nay, of trebling his speculation. The
credit system, as it was once understood among us, is
abolished: endorsements are narrowed down to the
strictest limits, and each individual now works upon a
positive and effective capital, and not upon an imagi
nary and fallacious One."
If these principles are strictly adhered to, and the
ruinous system of artificial credits abolished, we shall
very shortly have nothing to complain of, and the old
cry of "hard times" will be known only in name.

states that at Birr, on the 11th inst., the adjutant of

reported, gave him a severe chastisement, and shortly
after he was found in the condition named. The oc

THE CosTassr.—The attempt by the Ordnance
Board at Washington to reduce laborers' wages from
eighty-five to eighty cents per day, has induced a cor
respondent of the Baltimore Sun to make a little inves_

labor that each party performs. Each ordnance offi
cer, according to his estimates, receives from govern
ment a salary, rations, &c., of $2160, which, with al

Sr. Louts. The growth of this city is beyond all
precedent. The Organ, a spicy little paper, in allu
ding to the rapid progress, and immense strides she
has made towards wealth and magnificence, speaks in
the following glowing terms:
"What a picture of prosperity St. Louis presents!—
' What improvements are daily in action in every part
of our beautiful city! Public edifices of large and
splendid proportions evert where present themselves—
nor do they surpass in elegance the numerous private
dwellings. Wherever we turn we belkld the signs of
wealth and rapid progressive improvement. All the
vacant lots in the central part of the city are rapidly
filling up with substantial and splendid buildings; but
in this what glads us most, is that the sun-darkened,
hard-fisted, honest-browed child of toil—that gentle
man of nature, the mechanic—feels a long relaxation
from the annoying ease of idle hours, and mounts his
scaffuld and handles his plane with a cheerful spirit,
secure in the knowledge that he is honestly earning the
price of a livelihood won by the sweat of an arm and
forehead, as true and proud as his whom fortune has
selected fur her blind gifts."
