CURTIS. - PKOTEST OF THE PRESIDENT. 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 says 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. THIRTY-SIXTH CONGRESS. 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. FOREIGN NEWS. 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. Mr. Butterworth, and the treasurer who offici ated in New York, as well as the distributor in Philadelphia, were to have been next ex amined, to ascertain who subscribed and who received the money. , . , Babxum Erect. We see by the New York papers that the great showman has disposed of the great clock debt and "come to time.',' The Museum is to be once more under his control, and the world is to sit down to its an cient feast of astonishment every morning. While the Pharisees, were abusing Barnura, Barnura was id Europe lecturing, and apply ing his earnings to the extinguishment of his indebtedness. That was honest. PENNSYLVANIA ITEM3 PREPARED TOR THE "RAFTSMAS'S JOCRSAL." 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 minutes. HORRIBLE AFFAIR. 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. " ' ; ."' Harriet A. Blackington, an operative in one of the .Loweir factories, died of phlebitis, a very rare disease, last week. It commenced in the thumbs, resembling a blood-blister, and grew,' rapidly malignant, like the bite of a rat tlesnake, till she died in great agony, three days after its appearance. During her spasms she bit the finger of an attendant, who was sa. ved by cauterization. ' ' , ' :- " The Imprisoned Commissioners. We learn from the Pittsburg papers that the County Commissioners in the prison of that city hold daily levees, which are largely attended, and their anti-tax friends keep constantly patting them on tho back and telling them to remain firm.
