Sled to untie the string, and the precious meta!pour.
in a perfect shower. Kit's first thought was
one of unmitigated delight, hut ere an instant has pass
ed, he and his wife looked intently at each other with
faees painfully livid.
'Bessie,' said he grasping her hand tightly, and
speaking through his teeth with compressed energy.

flyitaid Want; misfortune dogs nor very roet-steps—
let yihi yry . that airercifdl God may give us steotieli
to battle with this strong temptation.'And' with clasp
elliinds they knelt in silent supplication.

compensed in an extraordinary way.
Neither Kit nor Bessie slept a single wink all that
the consciousness of having so great a sum of
money in their possession, which did not belong to
them, effectually drove off slumber. Kit had count
ed it, and found there were one thousand pounds iu the
bag. How it could be possible to hove escaped his
'notice, as be removed the cushions from the cab, puz
zled him exceedingly; but he conjectured the string
had by some means got twisted round some of the
buttons. Having replaced the 1110-icy, he put it care
fully under his pillow; and if he felt once. he felt one
hundred times to see if it was safe. Bes.ie was equally
fidgetty, and at last, far from bring inclined to retail
any, they both heartily wished it nny where Inst. with
`them: now would they fancy footsteps were approach
ing the bed—now Kit would jump up and put sonic
additional fastening in the door and window—for the
,first time experiencing the truth of the-old proverb;
"lie who bas nought to lose, „.• •
Need never his door to close."
Poor Bessie., in the simplicity of he- heart, exclaim
,ed, “Detrr Kit, if money makes people feel as I do, I
wouldn't he rich fot nil the world."
Long before morning., they werdboth up; and n Len
Kit cast his eyes first upon his scant breakfast, and
then upen the treasure within his heftv:. grasp, his
heartbounded up to his throat. B .sde, guessing, his
'thoughts ; with truu woman's tact, diverted them into
the !woad, morn hehning current of paternal love, pre
senting the laughing boy to recci•:c the father's hr arty
hiss. -See, sec,•' she exclaimed, •'Low beautiful he
]oohs this morning ! does it not seem tc it Heaven had
rent one of his own angels to reward us for shunning,
this devil's lure: is it not a great thing to meet his
smiles without a !slush of shame."
"It is. it is," lie exclaimed. regaining his child with
the strong emotions Ma father's lON e, nu—you
shall never curse your father's mematy. The anger of
a just God, who vi.‘iN the sins of the father upon t he
children, shah never reach you for my misdeeds, if
through his abundant mercy my soul be still sit migth
ened in the right."
With placid minds, and even cheerfully. they sat
down to their insufficient breakfast, Kit cheering his
wife the while by saying—" Take heart, love. take heart;
shall take the money down to Som.u-set
doubt I shall see the owner; he skill be grateful for its
retur:t, and will perhaps reward mecwi;b u trifle; at ail
events, the gemtestplattsures that thane: could obtain
wouldn't arproarh the thousandth pit of the joy I feel
at the anticipation of returning to that old ninu his al
most. hopelessly lamented treasure."
Soon a fteruards Kit harnessed old Turk, and Much
to the old brat astonishment,withitut deigning to hold
with him the slizhtest conversation—nay. he even went
so ftr in forgetfulness and negluct, as to leave his ears

TROUBLE ON SHIPBOARD

with some of the passengers of the second cabin, in

PITTSBUTIC IE TUESDAY: NOVEM-BEIO2I
GOVERNOR M.kiciNG.—We have been called ou to
state what portion of the proceedings of tho Toast
Carnal tteei'rer the late emocratic Supper at the U. S.
Hotel, indicated a disrMsition for" Governor Making."
Thai, is,aastli, done; by referring to the regular toasts,
preliar4 and adopted by the Toast Committee, we
find 'ale complimentary of Hon. WILLIAM WILKINS,
Whirl reads as follo:vs:
Mae] Wilkins—The DeMocracy of Allegheny
`count• present hint an their candidate for Governor
of Pennsylvania in . 11344."
This toast was, for reasons best known to the Com
mittee, expunged after the company had assembled,
and one sabstitined certifying to the "talents, integrity
and th:mocratfe„,orthudoxy" of AI r. WILK IN S.
Ti. 2 feet tliat the Com:nittee prahared the above
toast to be oft!red to the c rn?any. sheyy> pininlenungli
that "Goveraor making" had.becn thought of by than
in making arr ingemcnts for the Suppe, it and the un
conditional mariner in which they intended to commit
the democracy of the county in favor of the favorite of
the Toast Committee, proves that the demonstration
was to have been on earnest one.
We have never understood what induccd the Com
mittee to strike out the original toast, so highly coin.
plimcntary to Mr. IVtt.tttxs, and adopt the stereoty
ped sentiinent that was read to the company. It
have been that they thought it would not be well re
ceived by so large a company, but when they under
took to speak fur the "democracy of Allegheny," they
should be gratified to have an opportunity of reading
the sentiment to a large audience, instead of to a select
feiv, as we bolieve was the intention of those who gut
up the celebration.
All de preparatory movements of the gentlemen
who toak an active part in this festival, had au air of
mystery and exclusiveness about them which could lint
be well understood, and which convinced ever y ,•ne t iet t
the supper was got up mote fur the purpose et" push
ins: forward some little scheme of their own, than to
rejoice over the late democratic victory in this cutint..
it the October eleeticn, soma of th'.! democratic candi
dates received over 4600 demo -ratic votes,yet netk . -
ing out the committees for this celebration, dctn,crat>
were so scarce that it was necessaty to place une gen
tleman en three or four committees, and
doubt, that they would be eq , ,aily scarce at the supper
the gentlemen of the committee were induced to ap
point many of th:imselves officers of the evening.—
Whatever motive tatty have induced the committee to
act in this manner, and to permit no person to take
imy putt in the primary proceedings it the celebration,
but such as would go with them for c.rtain measuros
and certain men, we know that those who 5. are not in
the secretF, believed tl.a: they got tip the Supper f ,, r
the purieuse of "Governor tooling." and the above
toe:.: is protty goal I _ac: tliat this belief
A- to its ivi:ll that Jul,,sh
a nomination for Goveraor, or Ssnsal-ter, we prosum •
the friends of the geotleman will wait, Leforo expect
ing him to !din do either, until the Post will show that
vositina with regard to one station will interfere
with reference to anothor. 'ft:, E htors of the P., :t
appear to suppose that if Judge Wilkins permits his
name to be used in comexion with the Speuk.•rslii, , ,
he should draw it from the hat of Gibernatnriai c
did Ives. llowover agreeable such a neressily inl :id
appear to these gentlemen, we see no good re IS ill
for its interference: the dutios of this ono cannot be
a to intern re with the other.—Aim ro ru.
We believe the cone/ire/ion will show that it would
be incompatible for o it person to hold tie.: two oillmes
at the same time, and we presume the provisions of
that document will be as satisfactory on the subject
as any reason wc could give. We believe the demo
cracy of Allegheny, entertain feelings of the highest
esteem for Mr. WlLl:ixs, and will always be gratified
at his elevatioa to distinguished public stations, but
they certainly do nut approve the indiscreet zeal of
some of his friend:, Wi n : cl aim for him a monopoly of
offices, and urge him for.vard for Corer:nor :IA Speak
er at the same time. They certainly cal lint suppose
that Judge Wthitiss desires to be elected to both
these offices, or that it would be convenient fir him to
sorve in b tilt at the .5371:1 ti:n:, even if tit ,re were
no serious creastituti vial objections to such a coinldna
thou ofofliciat stations.

Tha association determined to tike no ac
tion whatever with regard to the dJeuments read,
but adopted the following very proper Resolutions:
"Resolved, That the cause of Irish liberty is one in

the recollections of his good deeds in behalf of old
Ireland. and, that while we assert, and will maintain
our reputation as citizens of the Milted States, we
will reit permit ourselves to falter in thought, word,
or action, in our exertions in behalf of Irish free.

CATHOLICS OF NEW6RLEANS.
There is a very fterions difficulty existing at present
between the Vimeridde Bishop of New Orleans-eel
& Trustees of 'hi Catholic church in that city. From
what information we can _ , rather on the suhject, the
Trustees have not only pur,,:ned a very arbitrary souse
in the tempotal atfairs of the Church, but h a ve under
taken to control the Bishop in the appointment of his
clergy, and in oth;:r matters ia which they have no
right to interfere. The following extracts from the
N. Y. Expre , .s, and New Weans papers, will give
our renders some idea of the cause of !hi; difficulty,
and the consequence to which ;t will lead.

DISSENSION IN THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH
IN LOUISIANA.—We learn flora the New Orleans
Crescent City of the tith inst. that a meeting, has been
field by por.ion of the Catholic population of that
city, at which resolutions were passed that would, if
carried out, r.•,trict the Catholic Bishopof that diocese
of touch of the power ;app :sod to be conferred upon
him by the See o f Rome. Pe, contra, a meeting has
been held, composed• ohnoAt mainly of Catholics, in
which reseltitimm were passi•il in support of the Bish
op. The Crescent Chy says: '' e ar-I truly sorry
to sec these dissensions between two p )(lions of 1110
Church in tins city. Tlrw only result in evil.
Beth parties cannot succeed, as a matter of ceur,,e,
and it needs no prophet to tell that the Bishop will be
supported and that if he continues to to -ct with con
:taut trouble at his Cmhedcal residence down town,
that edifice will be left without priests, mass, com
munion, or ecclesiastical privileges.
"Aire:l44lle Bishop line absolved the Wardens of
that Church from the obligation of paying any salaries
to the appointed priestr , , and the next step will dinz'A

"St. Patrick's Church will then be made a cathe

will be had to free it from all mortgag , s and lie n s. and
