state by fraud and corruption, they had McNutt and
STEVENS appointed Canal COM M iSS I 3nera,and through
out that memorable contest every villanous scheme
that could be devised was resorted to to defraud the
people of their choice. They have now, no doubt, re
solved on another desperate movement, and, as a pre
paratory step, they have placed the great leader in the
pipe -laying frauds of 1840, in a prominent position,
where his natural inclinations can have full scope.—

Itensible correspondent of the Philadelphia Spirit
of Times, speaks thus of the performances of these
IRO, distinguished actors:
"Do Saturday night Richelieu was performed at both
the 'Chesnut and National theatres, Macready in the
one,a,_mi Forrest in the other, taking the part of the
wil)i:Ccirclinal. Both houses were filled, and we think
i that neither of the two great tragedians ever
percititiied. with more spirit, or to a more enthusiastic
9f,the Richelieu of Messrs‘ Macready and Forrest,
we Oarcely know how to speak. Both were uncom
, monefforts ofgenius; both were thrilling, effective and
natural; yet nothing could possibly be more unlike than
the tiro representations. In some points Forrest was
unapproachable; in others Macready was infinitely be
yond his rival. Forrest's 'was the more striking per
forretince. but Macready's the more finished and satir
ical: The two remind us of the incident in Scott's
Tales of the Crusaders, where Cocur de Lion, to shew
his 'kill, cuts abar of iron in twain with his battle-axe,
while his StuaZenic opponent delicately divides with
his Aoimetar a veil that is thrown towards him. The

131:ICHANAN MEKT/NO.—Don't forget the meeting a
the Washington Hotel this evening. The tithe is ap
propriate for an expression of the feeling of Pennsylva
nia on the subject of the Presidency, and such sugges
tions will be made to the meeting to-night,as will, we
are certain, receive a hearty response from every quar
ter of the state.
The democracy of Pennsylvania are so unanimous in
favor df the nomination of JAMES BUCHANAN, that
thereis no cause for discussing the subject, and conse
quently but little feeling is evinced in the matter.—
This harmonious union on the favorite of the state has
given the enemies to the claims of Pennsylvania, an
opportunity of misrepresenting the popular sentiment
abroad, and our inactive policy is attributed to a feel- 1
ing of indifference, instead of a union of t'te whole par
ty on our favorite. This apparent apathy may du us
much injury abroad,as it may induce many of the warm
friends of our candidate in other states to suppose that
Iwe feel no deep interest in the matter. It behooves us
' then that we should agitate! agitate! agitate! that our
friends may not Prow faint in the work, or beeome luke- ,
warm in the cause. The meeting this evening will
give a decided expression of the feelings of the demo
cracy of Allegheny, and our frieads abroad may real

-LUE Nose COSMITTF.E.—The Antimasonic Com
mittee of Correspondence met on Saturday, and after
considerable discussion, adopted a resolution authori
zing a County Convention to be held on the 4th January,
1844, to decide on what shall be done with the small
remnant that remains of the antimasonic party.
Between the present time and the 4th January, the
leaders in the city will ascertain what kind of a bargain
they Can drive with the masonic (Clay) whigs, and on
that day they will be prepared to hand over the whole
antirnasonic party to the "Ex-Grand Master." But
we doubt much whether the great body of the antirna
sons—the honest voters who have been gulled so long
by city leaders—will pay any attention to the doings of
this committee. They have been
, t . sold and transferred
too often by the city clique, and now that the organi
zation to which they wore honestly attached is destroy.
ed, they will take their own political course without
permitting others to dictate to them. Whatever ar
rangement is mule to enlist under the whig banner,
they may rest assured it is one ofcorrapt ion, and entered
into solely for the benefit of a few who have been specu
lating in anti at asonry for some years post. The honest
portion of the party know thiaottatve think that here

NEW YORIC—The election for members of the Le

for the purpose, were regularly broken in upon by a
band of rowdies, in the pay of the whirs, at the head
of which is the notorious ruffian, Mike• Walsh. We
suppose "all the decency" will have the services of this

During the last war a revolutionary veteran, lived
near the ocean, never went to bed without having a
well-loaded gun by his side. One night there was a
violent thunder storm, which shook tho house to its
foundation. "Husband! husband !" screamed his wife.
"get up! the Britishers have landed, or the Day of
Judgment has come--f don't know which !"
said the old soldier, jumping up, "let them come on—
they'll find me ready for either of them."
The Commissioners appointed by the Legislature

are no expense to the county, the whole being furnish

bodies of unseated lands in this county, but owners need

It was a cold night, in the November of 1840, while
I w e were sojourning in the State of New York, that the

which we were then staying. We soon discovered
that the : , ;able attached to the hotel was in flames,and'
our first efl,rts were directed to the safety of the hoc-'

door:, and unloosed the halters; but no sooner was this

buroing element, fell down and died instantly. After
considerable exertion, we succeeded in getting six oth

leap, hounded into the midst of the fire. The other
ran, with much speed, a distance of twenty rods from
the building, and then wheeling about, made his way
back to the tire, in spite of our efrorts to stop him, and
shared the fate of the rest of his companions. This
statement, although it proves nothing new, may he re

on the next morning the half burned bones of eighteen
noble steels, still simmering among the smoking em
