Subject to the decision of the Chicago Convention
Our readers will doubtless remember that
, on the 22d Nov. 1853, Mr. Buchanan address,
ed a letter to the Committee who had Invited
- him to attend the Centennial Celebration of
the capture of Fort Duqucsne, 8t Pittsburgh,
in which he deplored a growing and dan
gerous evil" "the employment of money to
carry elections,"-and feared, if it was not spee
dily checked, "we most end in a military des-
- potlsni." , A few weeks ago Mr. Covode made
a successful motion to hare a committee of
' five members appointed to ascertain, among
other things, "whether the President of the
' United States, . or any officer of the govern
ment, has, by money or patronage, or other
improper means, sought to influence the pas
sage of any law, appropriate to the rights of
any State or Territory ; and second, also to
inquire into and investigate whether any ofti.
cer or officers of the government have by com-
bination or otherwise, prevented or attempted
.to prevent the execution of any law or laws
now npon tho ttatuto book, or whether the
President has failed or refused to compel the
execution of any law thereof." This inquiry
has touched the President in a sore place,
- and as a lust desperate resort, he, who lectu
red our good people- so roundly on tho dan
gers of the government going to destruction
in conseqeenco of the corruption ot its officials,
has been compelled, through fears of a dis
graceful exposure of his own official conduct,
to protest in a formal message, which he sent
to the House on tho 29th March, against the
'power of Congress to thus arraign him ! He
pleads the independent position of the Execu
tive ollicu in tho samo strain that tyrants of
old contended for the kingly prerogative. He
Although the terms of the latter portion of
the resolution are extremely vague and gener
al, yet my sole purpose in adverting to them
. at present, is to make the broad line oi dis
tinction between the accusatory and remedial
clauses of this resolution. The House of
Representatives possesses no power under the
Constitution over tho first, or accusatory por
tion of the resolution, except as an impeach
ing. body ; whilst over the last, in common with
the Scnate,their authority as a legislative body
is fully and cheerfully admitted. It is solely
in reference to the first or impeaching power
that I propose to make a few observations.
Except in this single case.the constitution has
t invested the House of Representatives with
no power, no jurisdiction, no supremacy, what
vcr,over the President. Jn all other respects
he is as independent of them as they are of
him. As a co-ordinate branch of the govern
ment he is their equal. Indeed, he is the on
ly direct representative on earth of the people
of each of tho sovereign States. To them
and them alone is he responsible while acting
within the sphere of his constitutional duty,
and not in any manner to the House of Rep
resentatives. The people have thought proper
to invest him with the most honorable,respon
siblc, and dignified office in the world, and the
individual, however unworthy, now holding
this exalted position will take care, so far as
in him lies, that their rights and prerogatives
shall never bo violated in his person, but shall
pass to his successor unimpaired by the adop
tion of a dangerous precedent. He will de
fend them to the last extremity against any
unconstitutional attempt, comu from what
quarter it may, to abridge tho constitutional
lights of the Executive, and render him sub
' servient to any human power except them
selves. The people have not confined the
President to the exercise of the execu
tive duties. . They have also conferred on
him a large measure of legislative discretion.
No bill can become a law without his approval,
as representing the people of the United
States, unless it shall pass after his veto, by a
majority of two-thirds of both Houses. In
his legislative capacity ho might, in common
with the Senate and House, institute inquiry
to ascertain any facts which are to influenco
his judgment in approving or vetoing any bill.
This participation in the performance of le
gislative duties between co-ordinate branches
of tho government, ought to inspire tho con
duct of all of them in their relations towards
each other, with mutual forbearance and re
spect. .At least each has a right to demand
justice of the other. Tho cause of complaint
is that the constitutial rights and immunities
of the Executive have been violated in the
person of the President."
An honest and high-minded public function
ary, wrongfully accused of misdemeanor in of
fice, would troublo himself little about the
points of etiquette or the rights of his accu
sers to arraign him, but would challenge an
investigation at once of all that he had done in
his official capacity. , .This, however, is evi
dently what Mr. Buchanan wishes to avoid.
He is doubtless afraid of it, thdugh he asserts
that "nothing but perjury can sully his good
name." ' --"- -
"The Presidentjwonld have us believe that he
'does not shrink from an investigation. He
says, in his message, "I again declare emphat
ically I make this protest lor no reason per.
sonal to myself, but I do it with perfect res
pect for the House of Representatives, in
which I had the honor of serving for five suc
cessive terms." This may be so, but it seems
to us that, iustcad of looking after the welfare
of the House, he is, by this sort of subterfuge,
trying to take care of himself. '
The "protest" concludes as follows :
"I may now,, however, exclaim in the lan
guage of complaint employed by ray first and
Created predecessor, that have been abused
in such exaggerated and indecent terms as
could scarcely be applied to a Nero ; to a no
torious defaulter, or even to a common pick
pocket. I do, therefore, for the'Teasons sta
ted, and in the name of the people of the sev
eral States, solemnly protest against these
proceedings of the House of Representatives,
because they are in violation of the rights of
a co-ordinate branch of the government, and
subversive of its constitutional independence;
because they are calculated to foster a band
of interested parasites, ever ready for their
own advantage, before exparte committees, to
relate pretended private conversations be
tween the President and themselves, incapable
from their nature of being disproved, thus
furnishing material for harassing him, degra
ding him in the eyes of the country, and, e
ventnally, should he be a weak and timid man,
rendering him subservient to improper influ
ences in order to avoid such persecutions and
annoyances ; because they tend to destroy
that harmonious action for the common good
which ought to be maintained, and which I
sincerely desire to cherish between the co-ordinate
branches of the government, -and final
ly, because if unresisted, they would establish
a precedent dangerous and embarrassing to all
my successors, to whatever political party
.they might be attached."
This message is regarded, even by Demo
crats, as weak and unnecessary, and will fail
to produce the desired effect on tho other
hand, it will go tar to convince the people
of the truthfulness of the charges that have so
repeatedly been made against the President.
March 2G. The Senate struck ont of the
Consular Appropriation Bill, the $15,000 for a
3Iinister to Paraguay. Mr. Blake, of Ohio,
stirred up considerable excitement in the
House by offering a resolution that the Judi
ciary Committee be instructed to inquire into
the expediency of reporting a bill to give free
dom to cveiy human being, and to interdict
Slavery wherever Congress has the Constitu
tional power to legislate on that subject. For
a few minutes the noise and confusion was
great, but the resolution being voted down by
over 60-majority, it soon subsided. A bill for
tho relief of mail contractors, passed both
Houses. It authorizes the Department to use
the net revenue of the quarter just expiring to
pay contractors and route agents.
March 27. Tho time of both Houses was
taken up with the consideration of the Army
and Navy Appropriation bills.
March 28. The bill to increase the pay of
officers in tho Navy was passed by the Senate.
A discussion on polygamy came off in the
House, on the report of a proposition from
tho Committeo on Territories declaring polyg
amy a Crime, and nnnnlling all the Territorial
laws of Utah legalizing and establishing it.
Tho Democrats of the House were liot ready
to stand forth as the advocates and supporters
of this peculiar institution ; on the other hand,
they could not but squirm at the idea of as
serting and enforcing the authority of Con
gress over the Territories in relation to the
subject. For if Congress can limit the num
ber of wives a man may have, it is difficult to
see why it may not also limit the number of
slaves he may have ; if "popular sovereignty"
in the Territories is a delusion and a snure in
regard to polygamy, why not in relation to
slavery also ? Mr. Branch, of X. C, was wil
ling to prohibit polygamy, but could not brand
it as a crime, because the same thing might
then be done with slavery. Tho subject was
at last imformally laid aside. ,
March 20. The President sent a message
to tho house protesting against Mr. Covode's
Investigating Committee, and denying . the
power of that body to make any inquiry, the
result of which may be unfavorable to the per
sonal character or official conduct of the Pres
ident. If the conduct of the President is to
be examined, Mr. Buchanan contends that it
can only be done through the Judiciary Com
mittee and in the form of an impeachment.
Ou this point an interesting debate sprung up.
The steamer Arabia, which arrived at New
York on the 30th, biings three days' later for
eign intelligence, her dates being to the 17th
March. The House of Lords had agreed with
tho House of Commons in an address to the
Crown in approbation of the new commercial
treaty with France by a vote of G8 to '68. An
nouncement had been made in both Houses of
Parliament of the reception of a circular dis
patch from the French Government relative to
the Savoy question. M. Thouvenel states
that the annexation of Savoy to Franc? has
become necessary by the altered position of
Icaly, but that tho feelings of the people of
Savoy will be consulted. The European Pow
ers are, however, to have nothing to say in
the business. It is now stated that the order
for the French army in Lombardy to be ready
to march at a moments notice has been coun
termanded. There is also a report of a rather
Buncombe character to the. effect that the
Emperor Napoleon has sent an autograph let
ter, couched in angry terms, to the King of
Sardinia, against the acceptance by the latter
of Tuscany, notwithstanding the recent test
of universal suflrage. He may, however,
name a Prince of his own house for Tuscany,
and the Romagna may be governed by a "Vicar
acceptable to .the Pope. The Swiss Federal
Council has protested against the annexation
of the neutralized districts of Savoy to France.
The result of the election on tho question of
annexing Tuscany to Piedmont was largely in
favor of annexation. The arrests and banish
ments in Naples were continued, and a reign
of terror prevailed there. Tho British and
other foreign Ministers, it is said, have re
monstrated with the King. In Austria the
symptoms of social and political dissolution
continue to manifest themselves in a most re
markable manner. The condition of that Em
pire renders it unlikely that Franci3 Joseph
will undertake a new war against Lis late vic
torious enemies, except he is driven into it by
irrcpressiblo necessity. It is expected that
the annexation of the Romagna to Sardinia
will be followed by tho excommunication of
both Victor Emanual and Louis Napoleon.
A dispatch from Madrid states that the Empe
ror of Morocco has sued for peace.
Mr. Covode's coramitto is collecting impor
tant information in regard to the expenditure
of money for political purposes in Pennsylva
nia at the last Presidential election, and since
then, for the purpose of illustrating the fitness
of the President's Pittsburgh letter, and con
trasting it with the means by which he obtain
ed his present position. Mr. Schell, the Col
lector of New York,testified to his knowledge
of $30,000 or $40,000 having been raised in
New York, to be expended in Pennsylvania.

ated in New York, as well as the distributor

Indiana Cocxtt. The steam-saw mill and
plaining factory of George Dill & Co., near
Strongstovvn, was consumed by fire on Satur
day night, March 23d. ... A little child of
Wm. Youngblood, of Indiana borough,' was
bitten by a dog belonging to Abraham Moore,
on the 22d. It was with difficulty that the
dog, though a young one, could be induced to
let go his hold. ... John Mitchell, a son of
Dr. Robert Mitchell, of .Indiana, died near
Elwood, Kansas, on the 15th ult. He went to
Kansas in the spring of 1856 ; squatted on a
section of land ; in the fall, started, in com
pany with others, to Leavenworth for flour ;
the "party was attacked on the way by 200 Bor
der Ruffians ; young Mitchell was among the"
prisoners taken ; all were released but nine,
Mitchell being of this numbci. They were
detained eleven days, when they were deliver
ed to Gov. Shannon. During this time, the
prisoners had to lay on the damp ground with
out blankets or covering. By this exposure,
Mitchell contracted a cold, followed by fever
and ague, and eventually terminated in con
sumption, which caused his death.
Blair Couxty. A step-daughter of Mr.
John Schweigert, proprietor of tho Red Lion
Hotel in Altoona, was seriously bnrned,on tho
21st March, by her clothes taking tire from
a fluid lamp which was upset or exploded.
Her screams brought her step-father to her
relief, but it was with difficulty that her clothes
could be torn off. The girl, who is about 14
years of age, was severely burned about the
left breast and arm and right thigh. . . .On
the evening of the 2Gth, the wife of Mr. A.
Eckel, tobacconist, of the same town, was
terribly burned about the face, breast and
hands, by tho explosion of a lighted fluid lamp.
Most of the hair was burned from her bead,
the skin on her face so much seared that it
will come off, and one of her ear-rings was
burned out of her ear. Her injuries are not
considered dangerous. . . . The Episcopalians
of Tyrone and vicinity organized a Parish on
Monday, the 26th March, under the title of
"St. Philip's." A vestry was elected, and
steps taken to procure thu services of clergy
men. We8tmorele5D Coixty. James Kilgore
and two sisters, of Mt. Pleasant, were thrown
from a buggy last week and severely injured.
. . . Jacob Gran, sr., of Pleasant Unity,was last
week severely hurt by being kicked in the face
by a horse. ... The dwellings of Thomas
.ioore and II. Smith, and the store room of
W. II. Guthrie & Co., in North Washington
were burned. No insurance. . . . On the 28th
ult., Mary Jane Huston, aged about twenty
four vears. daughter of Mr. Joseph Huston,
who resides at Covode's Factory, committed I
suicide, by cutting her throat with a razcr.
Five cuts were inflicted upon her neck. From
the position in which her corpse was found it
is supposed t'at she had gone to tho barn, ta
king the razor with her, and attempted to
hang herself with a plow line, and that tho
knot slipping, she had recourse to the razor to
accomplish her object. No cause is known
for the commission of the act.
Cumberland Coentt. On tho 20th March,
Mr. Peter Myers, in company with his daugh
ter, a little girl aged thirteen years, attemped
to cross the dam at James' mill, in West Penns
boro township, in a small boat that had been
used for that purpose. Immediately on leav
ing the shore, a tempestuous gale drovo the
boat rapidly down the stream, and finally over
the dam ! The boat capsized, and Mr. Myers
and his little daughter, after a few ineffectual
efforts to save themselves, sank to the bottom
of the deep stream. The only one who wit
nessed the catastrophe was a little boy, who
immediately gave tho alarm, when the neigh
bors asspmbled and used every effort to rescue
the sufferers, but all their exertions were una
vailing. The bodies were taken from the
stream about half an hour after the accident.
Jefferson Cocxtt. On Friday, March 23d,
a young man named Jacob Fisher, was engag
ed in loosening a pile of logs near Russet's
mill,' three miles from Brookville, when the
pile started and throwing him down he was
crushed beneath the rolling timber. The de
ceased was abeut 16 years of age.and although
living when taken from under the logs,, he was
so crushed and bruised that he died in a few
During week before last, a sloop engaged in
the oyster-trade was found off Staten Island,
New York, at sea, and upon examination it
was ascertained,that no persons were on board,
and that the vessel bore marks of a bloody en
counter. The deck was covered with blood,
at places showing signs of a struggle. At the
sides of the vessel were to be seen bunches of
hair clotted with blood. On the stair-way
leading to the deck was to be seen the mark
of a hatchet, where evidently in the encoun
ter the hand of one of the unfortunate victims
in clinging to the stair-way had been cut off.
The small boat of tho vessel was gone. It
was found upon bringing the vessel to New
York that the sloop had left the harbor of New
York but shortly before in charge of a Cap
tain, two boys, and a man by the name of
Johnson. A vessel had run into the sloop the
night before she was found, when the small
boat was still aboard, and but one man made
his appearance on deck. Particular attention
was not called to the sloop at the time. Tho
Police of New York were soon ou the track
of the raurdercr.and a series of circumstances
soon came to light, which lead to hi3 speedy
capture. A man in a small boat landed on
Staten Island, and left the boat on the beach.
Shortly after a person with a bundlo stopped
at a restaurant, and his conversation seemed
rather suspicious. He was traced on a Ferry
boat, where he had the same bundle.and mado
an exhibition of some money in the bundle,
about $1000 as alleged, which he had saved
from a ship-wreck. He was finally, traced to
his home in New York, was seen to leave the
city with his wife and child and was finally
captured in a private dwelling on the outskirts
of Providence, R. I. A gold watcb,bclonging
to the Captain of tho sloop, was found in his
possession. The name ot" the suspected mur
derer is William Johnson, and it is supposed,
that he murdered his three unfortunate victims
singly, the clothing of the Captain being found
unsoiled with blood, and rendering probable
the inference, that he was in bed, when the
other two were murdered. The unfortunate
man has been brought to New York", where
his trial will come off in due time. A more
daring and cold-blooded murder, it has not
been our lot to chronicle in many a day. " ' ;
