CLEARFI ELD. PA.,
li r elity, November 8, 1854.
Antong others, wi ilielluently hear the name
of our friend SANDERSON, of the Daily News :
'Favorably mentioned for Secretary of State.—
Mr. Sanderson, is a clever fellow, has a thor

and would no doubt make a good officer.

What becomes of our Daily papers, mailed
us regularly every day, at Philadelphia, and
which we never receive, on an average, more
than twice a week 1 For six days we were an
eye witness to the fact of their being mailed,
yet on returning home we found that but one
in the Eastern mail, five or six days behind

But above all, how does it coma that a letter
which was written to us from Philadelphia du
ring our absence, was opened and answered over
our signature, while we were still in the City ?
The letter and the forgery are both in our
hands, and can be seen by any person who may
think proper to call on us for that purpose.—

is in this world a class of persons,

the rest of mankind; who set themselves up as
the exclusive and peculiar patterns of morali

sickly plaids, in a dark, damp'vault, with few
companions, and comp - lauding the pity and
commiseration of all those who enjoy the bright

Why crimes are being multiplied around us.
Property is no longer safe, and even life is in
Autger. The midnight incendiary is prowl
ing about with his lighted torch, illuminating
the hears with the red glare of burning
'buildings, and the destruction of property,
merely to gratify his feelings of revenge, and
singular to say, no effort, is made to bring him
to justice, or if there is, it is rendered abor
tive by a hearing on Habeas Corpus, and dis
cbaring him on his own recognizance!
It is time'that something should be done to
bring the criminals, who are repeatedly escap
ing the just penealty of their crimes, to 'kis
tke. The officers throughout the county
should be constantly on the look out, and
when they succeed in arresting prisoners. our
judges who grant them a hearing on Habeas
Corpus, should remember that they are not to
pam upon the question of guilt or innocence,
DOT to fix the punishment. It is their duty to
see that the prisoner is not improperly depri
ved of his liberty, but that there is just cause
to suspect him of the commission of the crime,
and wherever there is sufficient reason for
binding him over at all, there is mason for do

Justice tardy and half administered, only
encourages crime. It shows that orences may
be committed with impunity, and gives evi
dence of no extraordinary tenderness of feel

ment. Judges and juries have duties to per
form towards the public, as well as to the
prisoner, and the escape of any criminal in
flicts a most serious evil on society.
After a tiresome and tedious journey of two
weeks, we again find ourself seated in the told
arm chair,' enjoying one of Hemphill's ez
eellent, Regalias, and preparing 'copy' for the
thup' who st ' , lids at our shoulder. During our
adsence we had the pleasure of becoming ac
vuainted with a large number of our brethren
of the quill, to whom, one and all, we beg
leave to return our heart-kit thanks for their
hospitality and kindness.

we are also indebted, and would recommend
their house, as one of the best in the city.—

welcomed, and are soon made to feel 'at home.'

UNITED STATES SENATOR.
In a large number of our exchanges we see
the name of Col. A. G. Ct itriN, of Centre
county, mentioned in connection with the of
fice of United States Senator. That such a
selection would be acceptable to the people of
this section of our State, there can be no
doubt. Not only because of his distinguish
ed and laborious services in the late contest,
than whom, no single individual in the Com
monwealth done more towards achieving our
glorious victory, but because of his command

seems like a fellovr citizen, and his elevation
to this distinguished position would be hailed
with delight by all those who throng our
Court's, listen to his brilliant arguments, and
receive his cordial greeting. He is known to
us all as a brilliant orator, an accomplished
scholar, a profound lawyer, and an estimable
man, who would represent 'the interests of his
native State witti fidelity, ability and honor.
It is coneoded by all that his long services
to his party, his laborious and disinterested
ex ono late contest, together with his
restless defence of• American principles, and
his bold and withering denunciation of the
Nebraska iniquity, all point to him as the man,
ate all ""other; who should receive this high
mark of favor at the bands of the party he

confident, from the /he** intattresbid in his

"During the two days' stay of Mr. 1.. at the
crossing of the Colorado, a report was brought
in to the effect that a company of immigrants,
composed of fifty persons, all from Texas,wtre
murdered near the Pimos Villages, by a band
of Apaches, on the 31st of August. There
were several women and children in the train.
who, it is feared, were doomed to a more hor
rid fate. All the cattle, GOO in number, togeth
er with the provisions, were carried off by the
Indians, leaving the wagons in the road. This
news was brought by a train which was at the
time a few hours' travel in the rear, but which
happily escaped attack.
"Near Tucson, about the mme time, a par
ty of twenty Americans were eating their din
ner, when a band of fifteen Indians made a de
scent upon them, and carried off 7 of their finest
horses, without a shot being fired by either par
ty, the Americans were well armed, out
numbering them, and witnessed the outrage.
"Another party, a few miles on the other
side of Tuesen, were attacked, American
killed, and twenty-seven horse , t Leen. The
parties before mentioned were all from Texas.
"The Apaches are becoming more trouble
some and more formidable every day, and al
most every train which enters within their
range will he more or less harrassed by them.

grants ate now on this route, through Texas,
than have ever been before."
Gwin is working might and main to be re

From all parts of the State the news is en

A most extraordinary occurrence has hap
pened within the last few days at Redruth, its
Cornwall. As long ago as the year Mb,
miner named Williams was working in Pod
nandrea mine, near Redruth, when he fell, to
gether with his brother, into the shaft. His
brother after falling about 12 feet, contrived
to stop his farther descent s but the &eased
fell further down, and a quantity of rubbish
toppled down upon him. Though every exer
tion to recover the body waste fora period
of two months, it could not be found, and the
shaft was then, closed over. In this state it
remained till April laid., when a company was
formed to resume the working of the mine,
and, in clearing one of the levels the other
day, the body of the deceased was found,lying
on its . left side. It had on a blue coat, with
metal buttons,scoarse woolen sbht, and shoes
and stockings. On its being brought to the
surface, deceased's brother, who fell with him
into the shaft, and was then present, was so
"Seated that his conduct for a while was like
that of a madman. The Jury returned a 'ver
dict of "accidental death." The burial of
the body was witnessed by upwards of 4,000
