TnB Last Kansas Troubles. The Park
Tille Democrat of December 20th, furnifihes us
with the following information: "Wo nnder
atand that Gov. Shannon has determined to
give up the Gubernatorial chair in Kansas Ter
ritory. Ilis reasons for doing so we have not
lea.ned." The St-Louis Democrat, Jan.Sd.says
"We on yesterday had access to a reliable pri
vate communication, dated ate Lavenworthon
the morning of Dec. 28tb, from which we learn
the exciting news that, on Saturday, tbo 22d,
the office f the Territorial Register at Leaven
worth City, was entered by a mob and the press
and types taken out, conveyed to the river, and
tLrown beneath the water. Mrt'Dellahoy; the
editor j was absent at the time, .and hero was
no resistance ' oticred to the progress of the ri'
oters. After having drowned the press, they
returned to the off.ee, and burned a lot of pa
per which had been supplied for the printing
of the Register. They then dispersed, and
numbers were shortly afterwards engaged in
fighting and rowdying around the Empire
House, and other of the principal drinking sa
loons of Leavenworth. The whole affair was
of a most unlawful and disgraceful character.
It is stated that the mob was composed princi
pally of Missourians. "The sole cause of tho
riotous proceeding was, that Mr. Dellaboy had
made himself obnoxious by taking a bold stand
aid denouncing the interference of Missourians
in the affairs of Kansas. Letters containing
fuii particulars of the above proceedings, from
our regular Kansas correspondent, were mailed
at Leavenworth City on the 2oth, and will reach
vis in a day or two."
The Japan Teeatt Difficulties. Accord
ing to a Calcutta correspondent of the London
Times a Dutch official, selected especially from
the Ilague, was sent to Japan, to make such
suggestions to tho Japanese as would be accep
table to them, in their negotiations with tbo
United States Embassy, under Commodore
Pebrt. The Dutch being more familliar with
the Japanese character and Institutions, on ac
count of their long intercourse with them,
knew what restrictions it would bo necessary
to put in the way, to prevent a free commerce
.with foreign nations, to the injury of the Dutch,
and thus, while fully acquiescing with Com
modore Perry, in a desire for a treaty of peace
and amity with us, with permission to our ships
to enter two ports merely for supplies, they
studiously debarred us from extending our
commercial relations, save through the Japa
nese officers. Even then they were 'so much
trammelled, and so completely at the mercy
of the government, that a couiiacrcial inter
course, to any ertent,was quite out of the ques
tion, it is also stated that the Dutch official
before aluded to, has, since his arrival in Japan
act tl as a kind of foreign secretary to the im
perial government. All this is important, if
true, and may be said to constitute the key to
the difficulties which have since attended the
fujl execution of the treaty. San.
Dismissal or Md.Cbamptok asd tiih Brit
ish Consuls. The correspondent of Ihe X. Y.
Tribune, writing from YTashington City under
date of the 9th Jan., says : "A decisive step
lias been taken relative to British enlistments.
The Vng correspondence on this subject be
tween the two Governments has been closed
by an elaborate and conclusive dispatch to Mr.
Bnchanan, sent list Saturday, requiring the
British Government to recall Mr. Crampton,
or leaving the alternative of the Administra
tion giving him his passports here. The same
paper signifies dittiactjy the revocation of tho
exequators of Consuls Barclay at jSJew York,
Mathew at Philadelphia, and Eaycraft at Cin
cinnati, who were Implicated in the enlist
ments. England is indirectly prepared for
this contingency by previous negotiations, but
till the present demand may excite a tempo-
Vary feeling and lead to some difficulty in the
recognition of Mr. Buchanan's successor. It
may also emlarmu Lord Palmerston's official
tenure, From positive developments this
course is inevitable, and must be sustained.
If England makes it the cause of exceptions
jn settling the Central American question the
responsibility will fee her own;'' ' 't t
Impostcee asd Murder.-- An old.ioman,
named Wakcman, who is now better known as
"the Prophetess," not long since professed
that she had been raised from the dead, and
had a very important mission to perform in
the world. A number of poor deluded follow
ers were soon gathered around her, among the
number one Matthews, and Sly, her brother.
The old woman sown declared Matthews to be
possessed of & devil that must bo beaten out of
him, or she would die, in which event the
world would instantly be at an end ! To drive
out the spirit, Sly had Matthews blindfolded,
and then struck him on the left temple with an
ablet club. Matthews, fell to the" floor, when
Sly cut his throat from ear to car. After this
he'made the form of a cross on Matthews' bo
som by piercing it in seven places with a car
ving fork, and cut' from the upper lip two
round pieces. Through the cavities left by
this operat-on, it was designed the evil spirit
should escape. Sly seems to have no doubt of
the truth of his sister's professions,and appears
gratified .that he has been of such great service
to mankind, by staving off the dissolution cf
Jill sublunary things. -
'fi 'fMNA' Pa. On last Thursday night week,
F ! in (i. (Uhristy, convicted of burglary at the
ia!erm of the Court, made his escape from
prison. , In the same cell with him was anoth
er young man who had boon imprisoned for
costs, to whom Christy confessed the guilt of
the crime of which he was convicted, and said
lie had concealed the money obtained, .in a
coal bank near Blairsville, where he expected
to get it when he had effected his escape. .. He
burnt a hole through the lining of the cell by
boating tho poker, and then removed the brick
from the wall, and thus effected an entrance
iiito the prison hall, and then anbolied - the'
door and left. A reward of S-50 (or I:is appre
hension is offered by the Sheriff. Tho young
man confined lor costs could not resist the
temptation of a free exit, and left with Chris
ty, but only to return to hfs home.
Blair Couxtv. On tho 20th ult, the corps
es of two children were found iu an emigrant
car at Altoona. After tho train had reached
Gallitzin, intormation was received by tele
graph, that the parents, (who were Germans,)
had discovered themselves. The children be
longed to different families. The little girl
had died from teething the day before, while
the bov bad died of fever between Hunting
don and Altoona. Another chrid that died
had been left at Huntingdon for burial. A
son of Abr. Beales, of. Altoona, about 4 years
of age, was -so seriously burned on the 28th
ult., that he died nest TnorTiinqr.Th little
fellow was opening the stove'dco'fY when his
clothes caught fire. On the same day a man
named Center was severely injure! at Blair
Furnace, a spark of red-hot metal having en

blistered, but the suflerer can still sea a little
with it,and hopes arc entertained that the sight
may be preserved.

Company propose to give four millions of dol

eight annual payments after January 1st, 1856,
with interest at 5 per cent., conditioned for the

payable in ten annual payments from July,
1857, with interest at 5 per cent. They agree
to keep the Eastern Canal open, and also the

Gov. Siiaxxox, it socms, has changed his
course completely in regard to the people of
Lawrence, who were denounced in his procla

he asked President Pierce to send him U. S.
troops, as will be seen by the following docu

the New York Times :
"To C. Ronixsox, Commander cf the en

Ax ALXiEn FlketTcr Sax Jcax. Our last
advices from Havana stated that a number of
English and French vessels of war would
shortly rendezvous! thcort of San Juan. A
private letter from Havana contains the sur
mise that important news may soon arive from
that quarter. It can hardly be that either
England or Franco contemplates a hostile oc
cupation of San Juaa and the adjoining terri
tory, but it is not improbable that an effort
may be made to prevent tho influx of emigrants
from t be L'nited States to Nicaragua. Still
there is no telling what bold stroke Of policy
Paluierslon and his French adviser are alo;:t
to make in Central America. N. V. Sun.
Massachusetts. Gov, Gardiner's message
was delivered to tho Legislature on the 3d Jan.
He recommends twcr.ty-onc years residence
of foreign born citizens, and ability to read

deprecates the passage of the personal liberty
act by the last Legislature, and urges its spee
dy repeal ; suggests a reduction of the num

Max is What tie Eats. A celebrated Ger
man transcendoutalist, Louis Fenerback, a few
years since, published a thesis in which he en
deavored to prove that "man is what he eats,"
and attributes the immorality of the age to the
potato rot. Speculating on this eubject the
other day, the Pittsburg Post says some wag
remarked that thiswould satisfactorily account
for the origin of the two factions in New York
Hard shell? and Soft Shells! '
On last Wednesday, the 9th, a frightful ac
cident occurred on the Hudson River railroad,
near Ponghkeensie, N. Y., by which three
persons were instantly killed and about twenty

Parker II. Frexcu. This Nicaraguan he
ro ib a small, thin man, with but ono arm, evi
dently in ill health, and, like Walker, about
twenty-nine years of ago. His demeanor is
modest and conciliatory, but there is a certain
air inseparable it is presumed from the hazar
dous life he has led, which would mark him as
"one cf the boys.' While the former govern
ment was in power in Nicaragua, he acted
there as the agent and forerunner of Walker,
displaying no little tact and bravery in carry
ing ut his secret designs.

which a patent has been obtained, commends it
self to the attention cf Housekeepers and others,
on account of its great simplicity, and the effectu
al manner in which it accomplished a very desi
rable and useful object
The cans and jars are constructed with a chan
nel around the mouth, nerr the top, into which
the cover fits loosely. This channel is filled with
a very adhesive cement, prepared for the purpose
and allowed to harden. In order to seal tho ves
sel hermetically, it is only w.cmiry to hrat tie
cover xitghlly, and press it into p'ar-e. It may be
opened with as inuuh ease as it is closed, by slight
ly warming tho top. . The ordinary tin cans, used
for the same purpose for which this is intended,
cannot be closed, as is well known without the aid
of a tjnnsr; arc difficult to open, and are generally
so much injured iu opening as to bo useless for
15y this simple contrivance, the process of hcr
metieal sealing is placed conveniently within the
reach of every individual; and fruit, vegetables
