CI.EARFIELD, PA., APRIL 27, 1859.
The Ltcexsb Law. The Legislature of this
State at its recent session passed a supple
raeut to the license law, which provides "that
it shall be lawful for the several courts of quar
ter sessions of this Commonwealth to hear pe
titions, in addition to that of the applicant, in
favor of, and remonstrances against the appli
cation of any person applying to either of them
for license to keep a hotel, inn or tavern, and
thereupon refuse the same, whenever, in the
opinion of said court, such inn, hotel, or tav
ern is not necessary for the accommodation of
the public and entertainment of strangers and
travelers ; and so much of the sixth section of
the Act of Assembly, relating to the sale of
intoxicating liquors, passed the twentieth day
of April, 1838, is repealed: Provided, That
the several Courts of Quarter Sessions empow
ered to grant licenses shall have and exercise
such discretion, and no other, in regard to the
necessity of inns and taverns, as is given to
said Courts by the act relating to inns and tav.
cms, approved 11th March, 1831." This sup
pletnent has been signed by the Governor, and
is therefore part of the law.- Under the act
of 1856, the Courts could exercise no discre
tion, or hear remonstrances against granting
licenses. The supplement is.thcrefore,a very
"XewBocxdaet Dispcte. The Oregon trea
ty of 154C defines the line between the United
States and British Possessions as running a
long the 48th parallel of north latitude to the
middle of the channel which separates the con
tinent from Vancouver's Island, thence south
erly through the middle of said channel and
of Fuca's Straits to the Pacific Ocean." There
are many such channels, and a dispute has
arisen as to the ono intended. This dispute
has suspended the operation of the North
western Boundary Commission. The Ameri
cans claim tbat the line should run through
the Canal de Ilaro, and the English that it
should run through the straits cf Kosario.
This places in dispute several inlands, tho
chief of which is San Juan. On this a num
ber of Americans have settled, and others are
prepaiing to pre-empt - land there. The Eng
lish are also settling there and it seems pro
bable they will soon be quarreling. The Or
egon and Washington papers are expatiating
upon the difficulty.
Qcextix Dckwako, by Sir Walter Scott.
Peterson & Brothers have sent us, in the above
named volume, the fifth number of their cheap
edition of the works of Sir Walter Scott, and
a popular edition it is too, and we are glad to
find they have made a tremendous hit with
this cheap edition of the Waverly Novels.
There is a constant demand for these works,
and here at last we have an edition for the
million each volume costing but twenty-five
cents, and the whole series comprised in 20
volumes being furbished for the small sum of
five dollars. Such an opportunity to obtain
these fictions has never before been presented
to the masses of this country. Address all
orders to T. B. Petersen & Bros., 306 Chest

The War PaosPEcr. The Washington cor
respondent of the New Turk Ilsrald says:
The State Department is in receipt of letters,
brought by the last European steamer, from
onr Ministers in England, France, Madrid and
Vienna. The indications, write Messrs. Dal
las and Mason, are anything bet peaceful. The
impression is universal among leading men
that a general European war will sooner or la
ter convulse the entire continent of Europe ;
that the Peace Congress which is to assemble
may postpone, but cannot prevent it.
Accepted. Richardson L.Wright and John
Rove, the candidates of the Buchanan State
Convention for Auditor General and Surveyor
General, have accepted the nomination. They
do not say they stand upon the platform laid
down by the Convention, but merely take the
honor as it was tendered. Mr. Wright hopes
that "peace and concord, union and harmony,
may reign in the councils ot the party." Will
his hopes be realized ?

THE SICKLES TRIAL.
The trial of Hon. Daniel E. Sickles for the
murder of Phillip Barton Key is still in pro
gress at Washington city, but it is expected
that it will be brought to a close sometime
during the present week. A correspondent
of the -ew York Tribune, in a recent letter,
makes some good points upon this tedious case,
of which even the Counsel are becoming tired.
Of the trial and the Judge, he says :
"Itjs the same old story, day after day.
More talk to the Jury than reasoning address
ed to the Court, more reasoning and psuedo
reasoning than testimony, more testimony
than evidence relative to the issues in the
cause. Little or no scandal, few animated
passages between counsel and only one of
personal altercation. The Judge has little to
say except when called upon to decide a point:
exercises little authority, is littte respected.
He might shorten the length of the trial ma
terially if he chose;but he docs not attempt it."
Of the dock and Mr. Stanton he remarks :
Mr. Sickles is shown by his obsequious at
tendants into the dock, a fenced quadrangle,
reaching to his neck, in front of which usual
ly sits the leading counsel on behalf of defense,
Mr. E. M. Stanton, in a mass of hair and
beard, oot of which occasionally leaps, like
a tiger from a jungle, the mast sudden, the
roughest and loudest ot voices. On Thursday,
when this roz of praeterta mulla had full
sway of the Court room, a blind man would
have thought that all the bulls in Bashan
were there. . .
On letter-writers and the manufacture of
sympathy for the defense,he makes the follow
ing comments :
'Many of tho letter-writers from this place
are, wittingly or unwittiugly, used to advance
the interest of the defense. I anilar,from mean
ing to impute any unworthy motives to them,
or from intending to say that the reports of
tho proceedings in Court are otherwise iru
partial. But little impressions of sympathy
creep into letters and preface reports, and un
important incidents are magnified into histor
ic events. Certain persons who have volun
tarily attached themselves to Mr. Sickles and
his cause have much to do with these demon
strations, which, however intended, have the
enact of prepossessing people in favor of the
Referring to the story of the large company
of ladies who were said to have offered to tes
tify their sympathy with Mr. Sickles by their
presence in Court, he expresses regret at the
necessity of spoiling so touching a story, and
"These are the facts : Three "ladies," tem
porary denizens of the National Hotel, where
Mr. Sickles, sen., tarries one of tbeui from
Tauipico, one from Philadelphia, ono the
principal of a femalo seminary near Boston,'
all three toward the fifties "come in a body
to express "their sympathy for the son," and
to suggest, that if desired, they would, "daily
present themselves at the "Court House."
They spoke in tho name ol tho Washington
Treasure from a Wkpxk. At the offices
of Messrs. Abcll andLanglcy, bullion brokers,
London, there are now to be seen gold bars of
the value of 11,000, and silver bars valued at
4000, fished up from the wreck of the British
ship Lutine, which was lost off the coast of
Holland, on the 9th of October, 1709. After,
sixty years immersion, the gold looks as fresh
as if it had just been taken out of the bank.
The silver bars, on the other hand, have be
come almost black under the action of salt wa
ter; and some of the dollars, which have been
almost all saved, are so much corroded that
they are worth only one to two shillings each.
Politicians should never meddle with Scrip
ture. It is something of which they know
but very little ot best.and it is unsafe for them,
therefore to touch it. In his letter to Hon.
David Hubbard, Gov. Wise of Va., says:
"The Reubens have tried to sell me into
Egypt for my dreimlng." The Governor has
reference, doubtless, to the story of Joseph
being sold into Egypt, but, unfortunately, he
has got it all wrong. "Reuben," it so hap
pens, was the only one of the brethren who
did not icant to sell him. The Governor should
join a Bible class right off, and let Goggin go.
Judge Wilson, of the U. S. Court it Cleve
land, backed down from his position, and ac
ceded to the demands of the counsel for the
defendants in the Slave Rescue case, granting
them a new jury. The trial of Charles Lang
ston was then proceeded with. Slow progress
is being made, and the prospects are good at
the present rate, for the trial of the "thirty
seven" to extend into 1860. The evidence
now being brought out is generally the same
as that upon tho former trial, save the identi
fication of Langston as one of the crowd of
The Political Pkospect. A Washington
correspondent of the New York Express says,

plied, without hesitation "in my opinion tho

A Sad Mistake. A man living near Nash
ville, who had been absent in California some
three years, on coming home recently, found
a babe only three mouths old lying in the
cradle. With a cruelty utterly diabolical, he
at once cut off the infant's cars to avenge his

a neighbor who was visiting his wife. He
had to fleo to escape a lynching.

sermons at the time upon stealing, the rogue
apparently could not stand the pressure.

LIFE IN IOWA. .
The last Cambria Tribune contains the sub
joined extract from a letter written by an old
J ohnstowner residing in Iowa. His humorous
description doubtless gives us a truthful view
of life in that part of the Far West,! and we
commend it to tho attentive perusal of such
of our readers as have been thinking of emi
grating to Iowa. The letter was written some
time last month :
"I thiuk the best thing that could be done
with this country would bo to try to get the
Indians to come buck and live here, and make
them a present of the State with the improve
ments ; for it is not fit tor a white man to live
in. - Perhaps you will not 'believe what I tell
you about this country, but 1 assure you it is a
fact what I am going to tell you now. Last
week a team of four horses actually stalled
with an empty wagon. The roads arc impas
sable. Last October they got' muddy, and we
have not seen thtee. weeks since that time
without mud, and then it was froze-up and so
rongh that wo could hardly go afoot. No per
son can form any idea of it who never saw it
You have seen it when it was muddy from
ruins, but never when the frost was coming
out. R was here last Thursday. There is a
screw loose now, and a few more days will
break a bolt, and I am inclined to think the
bolt pin will break, for a sicker chiid than R.
you never saw- He declares that if the mud
is not dried up in twelve days from Thursday,
he will leave Iowa this Fall, for be says that
when he goes to feed his cattle his boots are
hardly long enough to keep the mud out. He
is cut ot wood and cannot haul any. The on
ly way ho can get any thing to burn is to pull
bark off his fences, and they have been at that
now for near two weeks. I am nearly out of
wood myself. I have been burning the fence
around the lot where I live, and I hive got it
nearly all burned up. When that is all gone
I do not know what to do ; but if I can do no
better, I will pull the weatherboarding off the
bouse and burn that. - The mud got so deep In
front of my house that I had to lay boards
down to walk on, and several of the poor,
dumb Hoosiers did not know w hat use there
was in doing' that, but waded through the
thickest of the mud. Poor old Ben; he may
be dead, for all I know, for I have not heard
from him for some time. I will write him a
letter some day, lor I know that be must be
out of heart, for he was that last fall; but if
yon have sent him ?50, I think it will bring
him to life again, and perhaps start him in an
other land speculation. Well, he may bny land
as much as he pleases, if he wants to ; but for
my part, I would not give a fist full of buck
wheat bran for the best section of land in Iowa.
