0 Tut Sui'Iifmk Coi:st The Miltnnian ol
last week has an article in very bad taste, in re
lation to the removal of Ihe Supreme Court from
this place, hut which, in fart, ia nothing more
than an indirect attai k on tbe jmljes of the court
Although we belong to no temperance order or
society, yet there are few who are more averse
to the use, as well as the abuse of spiritous li
quors than ourselves. The general and too com
mon use of ardent spirits, is an acknowledged
and deplorable evil ; but there are many who in
dulge in its use, w ho are among our most worthy,
honest and valuable citizena. We have known
the Judges of this Court, some of them for the
Isst 12 or 13 years, and during all that time, in
session here or elsewhere, we have never heard
aught against their integrity; or their ability to
discbarge their duties questioned. The editors
will probably deny they ever intended any thing
of tbe kind, but they should reflect, that these
indirect and loose attacks, on men occupying the
highest judicial station, are calculated to inflict
a greater injury on the judicial system, than the
most violent attarka of tbe ultra radicals, with
whom our iriends of tbe Miltonian were ia tbe
babit of finding so much fault.
E7" StatzConvzntiom In another column,
our readers will And a full account of tbe pro
ceedings of tbe convention held at Harrisburg on
the 4th inst. There waa, as was eipected, con
siderable excitement in the convention. Tbe
friends of Mr. Buchanan were largely in tbe ma
jority. The mentis of Mr. I'altas, aware or this.
endeavored to have the delegates I rum each t on
gressional district to appoint delegates to the
Baltimore Convention, with instructions to sup
port Mr. Buchanan. ' This propoai'ioti. which
resulted in giving some of the friends of Mr. Dal
las a chance of being sent a delegates, caused
eonaiderable debate. The matter, however, was
afterwards amicably arranged. - Mr. Wilmol was
present, and made a speech, in which ha stated
soma wholesome, though to some, unpalatable
truths, in relation , to bis proviso in regard to
slavery in any new territory to be acquired. He,
stated that wben the proviso passed a large por
tion of the demociatic tneaibers of Congress vo
ted with bim in its favor, and if he was to be
resd out of tbe party, a large portion of the de
mocracy would have to go with him.
(JTb treaty has not yet been finally dis
posed of. Its ratification ia, however, now
deemed certain, and will take place in a day or
two, at tbe farthest.

07" Govaskor Sucnk We lave recently
seen several notices In Ibe papers, atatir.g that

again getting better. The Governor's constitu
tion is note of tbe strongest, and bis frieiuls are
not without their feais, should these attacks con
tinue. C7 Tii it Canals The water baa been let in
some of the levels of the Schuylkill canal. It
has also been let in the canal at Holidaysburg,

tbe resumption of csnal navigation will com

(O Some of the Iallas papers, we observe,
ezult a good deal in having ont-generalled Ihe
frienda of Mr. Buchanan, at tbe late convention,
in selecting delegates.
07" Ta Tscatt wns Mksioo, which the Se
nate haa bad before them for Ihe week past, will,
it is generally believed, bs ratified by that body,
with the exception of a number of amendments
ia relation to recognising previous grants ol land,

to reject the treaty, (hough a laigs majority are
opposed to (he manner in which it was negotia
ted by Mr. Trist, who acted ia tbe matter with
out authority. It is said that but four democra
tic Senators wtllopposs it, viz: Benton, Breeze,
Atchison, and Col. Davis. Gen. Houston, also
opposed, will be absent. Mr. Webster is in favor
of postponing indefinitely, and sending out a re

manner becoming his high rbaraoter and stand

the fh'ppiiir af our 'wharve,'and at Ihe varlon
Newepaper i ffiree, were all displayed at hall

others thrnonhuut Iho city, pealed fo'lh their
inuflled (ones aa the hour approiched that the

The Niliorwl Artillery cmpi, Ctptain John

The rpr-chl train ronluininrr the honored r-
mains of the deeeaned, left Wilmington at half
punt 2oVlnek, anil arrived at Rroad and Smrh
ulreets about 4 o'clock. The cars containing
'he body and Ihe Committee of the Hout-e ol
Representatives, were feftooned with blick.
Rroad eln et was completely fi'led with a dense
maesol htim.inbeir.os. and it was with eorne
difficulty that the Second City Troop, aieinted
by the police, could keep the space clear to al
low thn formation ol the procession.
The coffin was then plaetd in a hearse, drawn
by six white horses with black plumes.

Isaac Rotch, and James Page, officiating as
pall bearers, worn white scsrfe. With roeettes
upon their right shoulder. Next came Ihe
clergy, s numerous body, comt-rieing almost at-
persuasions. Among them was Bichnp Putter,
of Ihe Proteetnnt Epiecnpiil Church, together
with mo?t of the pantors of our city churches
of that denomination. The Committee of Re.
cent ion followed, and next came the Committee
ol the House of Ueproeontstivre.
The procession passed along Rroad st, and
down Walnut, the vast concourse) of spectator
occupying the sidewalks and doorstep, main
taining their position with a respectful silence.
As soon as the head of the procession entered
the gste on Wslnut street, the band commerw
ced plating a solemn dirge, by Beethoven, in
which performance a gong accompaniment was
very erTec'ive. When the coffin hsd reached
the line of military, the order to prtsent arms
ass g.tven.
The coffin is very nest and plain. Il is msde
of metal, perfectly air-light, with a flat top, in
accordance with the style adopted in the Ess
tern Slates. It is covered with blue k velv-'t,
with silver bullion s round the upper edge. Up
on the lid tins been fixed a silver pi ite, bearing
the following inscription ; "J'tbn Qtiincy Adams

Silence and sorrow fill tbe lofty hall,
In grief the nations wis and great
Are gathered round tbe wiseat of tbero all ;
Tbe grasping hand of icy death
Has stricken down Ihe old man eloquent,
Who whispers with bis fleeting breath,
This is the end of earth I am content."
To God and man in erry duty true,
What hss eternity for him of fear,
The bliss of Heaven in his view,
Nought to regret in all bis efforts here;
Honored by all, by fiiends beloved,
Still te tbe stern deciea bs meekly bent,
Firm trust in God his last words proved,
