    an be devoted lo better objects than ope a-'
ing railroadj and great thoroughfares, and
to supporting and endowing beneficent in
stitutions of learning ; but I advert to it to
show the" inconsistency, as we'.l as the
want of a proper spirit of generosity, on
he part of southern and south western
Democratic gentlemen opon this floor. The
United States has power, according to the
course they pursue, to become a great land
jobber, to pay millions, perha hundreds
of millions out of the public Treasury, to
buy laud and pay annuities, and then par-
eel tbemout in building railroads, &&, to
benefit particular sections of the country,
yet when we ask for protection in the
North, they interpose their conscientious
scruples. Equality is but justice. And il
these local and sectional feelings and ac
tions are to be indulged to the ruin and
prostration of our interests, I know of but
one way in which we can counteract it,
and that is by paying them in kind, and
letting gentlemen and their constituents
know and fcel that this shall be carried
out in both sections, to its final and legiti
mate results.
But, sir, I prefer, lo act upon different
principles, and to be not only just, but lib'
eral to every section of tke country, unless
compelled, in self-defence, to pursue a dif
ferenl course. And it is to be hoped, sir,
that in view of the cutis with which we are
turrouoded, and the jealousies and conten
.ions that have arisen on other suljeets,
and in justice to the thousands who have
been impoverished by this tariff of 1646,
and to avert the still more tserious and al
arming results that mutt ensue from its
from its continuance, that centleman will
some to this subject in the spirit of a g-n
oroui patriotism, and remote this cause ot
grievance. Then, sir, shrill we see busi
ness revive labor will meet the just, re
ward of its toils and your citizens, finding
themselves the objects of regard and solici
tude, on the part of their Government, will
be inspired with renewed attachment and
devotion to our institutions. They will be
enabled to secure a comfortable subsistence
for themselves and their families, and to
give an enlightened and virtuous education
to their children, and thus, hile individual
happiness and prosperity w ill be promoted,
we shall add new gtiiirn litres to the securi
ty and permanence of the iustitutions of
our country.
The only question remain, shall this be
done? The power and the responsibility
rest with the Democratic party of this
country. They have the majority in both
branches of our National Legislature, and
can wield the power cither lor weul or for
woe. And I would fain indulge the hope,
sir, that there are among litem gentlemen
in both bodies patriotic and liberal enough
lo join us in so modif ing this act of 1946,
as to iniligile some of its rvili, sa l to
avert some ol its dangerous and bitter con
sequences. Execution of Or. Webster.
Boston, Friday, Aug. 30.
This morning, Professor Jrhn White
Webster suffered the eitresne penalty of
the law, for the murder of Dr. George
Piiikman in the Boston Medical College,
on he 33d of Novcmler, 1849.
The execution took place in the yard of
the Leventt street Jail, in presence of
about three hundred persons, w ho were in
vited' to attend by Sheriff Eveleth.
Among those admitted to the jail yard
were several reporters for the press of ihe
Alia nth cities.
After his family left him last night, as
he confidently alleged, in perfect unconsci
ousness of his coming late.he was searched
anJ placed in new cell, in order to pre
vent any attempted suiride.
Rev. Dr. Putnam left him at 9 o'clock
last night, and from that time till It, he
passed the time in devotional conversation
with his watchers. At 12 he kl I into a
abort dcze, but did not sleep heavily
awaking at times and conversing he
spoke of his impending fate with fortitude
and resignation, and seemed quite grateful
that the time of his death had been kept
from his family. He expressed the deep,
est penitence for his crime, and his sense
of the full justice of bis sentence and exe
out ion.
At the various noises of the dawning of
new day he seemed to be somewhat agi
tated, but soon regained his composure.
By advice he breakfasted upon tea with
bread, inviting the officers to partake with
him, and furnishing them with bnad.
He made the preparations for ascending
the scaffold wiik firmness.
The house lops aod windows adjoining
the jail were crowded with persons' among
whom were many ladies. The streets near
toe jail were also crowded, but not densely.
At 9 o'clock this morning the last relig
tout ceiemonies was commenced by Dr.
Putnam, connoting of a fervent prajer.
He invoked the presence of tl.e spirit and
grace of God for him, so toon to die. He
prayed tl at the prisoner's repentance
might te accepted, and that lie might be
prepared to meet death.
He prayed for the prisoner's family.thst
the consolation of God's presence and
grace anight be theirs, lhat when their
lime of death ahixild have come they might
meet the prisoner in Heaven, where there
wouid be no severing of the tics of affec
tion. Alsoor the family of the murdered
man. He prayed for the Sheriff, bit as
eistnnts generally, and for the officers o
ti e law generally, ai d for ibe "
and for all persons. About twenty minutes
past nine, the prisoner was brought out to
die. A (ter Ibe prayer the prisoner's arms
were pinioned, and with a firm step he
marched to Ihe gallows by the side of Dr.
Putnam. His face was as fleshy as when
he was arrested, though of a deathly palor.
His look was that of one who had commit
ted deadly sin, and was about lo pay for
il with his life.
While the Sheriff was reading Ihe death
w arrant Webster was conversing with Mr.
Putnam apparently with unusual earnest
ness ; at the conclusion his legs were then
pinioned and the rope placed about his
neck, which caused his face to blush.
There were evident signs of suppressed
powerful feeling. The black cap was
placed on his head, the Sheriff proclaimed
with a loud voice thai ha was about to do
execution on the body of John W. Web
ster, for the murder-el G. Parkman.
The commencement of the approach of
death caused a movement of the body of
the prisoner, whose face was hid from
view. The spring was touched, at twenty
minutes before ten o'clock, and, with a
fall of nearly eight feet, the murderer of
Dr. Parkman was launched into Eternity.
He died apparently with scarcely a strug
gle. The body after remaining suspended for
half an hour, was taken down and exam
ined ; life was found to be extinct, and it
was placed in a jail c (Tin, for transmission
at a late hour of the night, to bis late resi
dence in Cambridge ; from whence it was
expected lobe privately intered on Sunday,
in ihe Mt. Auburn cemetry, according to
the prisoner's request.
His wife and daughters visited him in
his cell for the last time on Thursday at 'i
P. M., and remained with liim'.or several
hours. They had been in the habit of
visiting him weekly, on lhat day. They
were kept in entire ignorance of the day
fixed lor the execution ; the first iute.li
gence therefore of his death, will come but
a few hours before the arrival of thecorse
at the dead of night and no pen in human
hands' may picture Ihe agony of the scene.
N new confession was made, as was
reported would be the case, and no new
statement have come lo light as yet, since
the execution. The report tkat he left any
other statements, to bo opened after his
death, is not believed.
Death by Violence.
An utifujunnte affair occurred on Sun
day evening last, about half past sis o'
clock, at the old packet landing, w hich re
suited in the death of George Richwine
A difficulty arose between William Klliot,
a butcher, and Richwine relative to some
pigs, which rcMilttd in Elliott picking up
a stone and throwing it at the other. He
missed his aim, but a brickbat thrown im
mediately after struck Richwine on the
head above his ear, and he fell. Dr. Van
vnlzah was immediately called in, but a
few hours proved that he was injured be
yond the skill oi man, and at tea o'clock
he breathed his last.
Elliott left town that night, and made
his way to a brother residing in Center
ville Union county, but had not lieen there
more than few hours when a handbill issu
ed by the Sheriff, offering a reward for
his arrest, lej to his apprehension and sub
sequent confinement in the jail ofthis coun
ty. Lewistown Gazette, Aug. 30.
Singular Incident
The Montgomery Ledger states that a
burglar entered the bouse of W. L. Smith,
near Flourtown, in that county, on the
night of the 10th inst., but soino of the
family being aroused, he hastily made his
retreat through a window, taking with
him some silver anoons. and a bundle of
clothing. lie also took a valuable gold
watch and chain, that a lady visiter bad
left lying on a work table, the evening be
fore. Next morning, strange to relate, it
was found hanging by its chain upon
rose bush, at the window out of which the
burglar went. It is supposed to have been
drawn out of his pocket by the guard
catching the bush, which in bis haste to
be none he did not perceive. Wonder if
everybody will not plant a ruse bush at
their window after this?

City Advertising Cheats.
The " Sunhury American," some time
since, very properly called the attention
of the country press to the advertising
humbugs which arc frequently sent out
from the Atl.-.ntic. cities New York, in
particular. The Company at 13S, (jreen
wich street, we admit had some plausibili
ty about it, but the " Racing Subscription"
was too transparent, wc thought, to impose
upon anybody willing or aMo to look an
inch beyond their nose. We have been
greatly surprise J, also, to Imd that so
many of our brethren of tlio press in the
interior, whose reputation for sagacity and
good morals is otherwise unblemished,
suffer the infamous " Maurieeau" adver
tisements to find a place in their columns.
(The " Muney Luminary," we are pleased
to see recently, rebuked the Agent who
even proposed it for publication. ) In the
first place, its pretended merit is no doubt
an atrocious lie ; and in the second place,
it purports to Iks addressed to one class of
persons, while in reality it is equally dc
signed to catch the eye and attention of
another sett and at any rate, whether
truo or false, and whether one or both
classes arc reached, it is nothing more or
less than a scheme of wholesale demorali
zation, that merits condign punishment.
If the existing penal laws of the common
wealth do not reach the evil, the Legisla
ture should pass new and stringent enact
ments upon the subject. And every Editor
and Publisher, who has a spark of regard
for the welfare of his readers who has
one honest motive, or believes in future
accountability should use the utmost
caution in preventing bis columns from
being an engine of Satan in his schemes of
human degradation and wo.

it, and its failure was the result. One of
tho heaviest stockholders is said to be

become notorious on account of his agen

Monday and Tuesday were occupied with
the examinations of the various Collegiate,
Academic and Primary classes, with re
sults that, we are informed, are calculated
to enhance the reputation of the institu
tion, and its Professors and Teachers.
Part of Wednesday was devoted to
public exercises in declamation and coin
position by tho students. We did not
reach the Hill till near noon, and are told
e missed some of the best performances.
The exercises in declamation were by
members of the Senior Academic, Fresh
man and Sophomore classes three repre
sentatives from each respectively, who did
themselves credit. If we had room wo
should be pleased to specify several
instances of marked superiority. Wc can
not, however, forbear an expression of our
opiuion that the recitation of a piece of
religious blank verse by Mr. Lowrie
in his appreciatiation of the sentiment of
the writer, the modulation of voice, and
adaptation of gesture and emphasis to his
subject, as nearly perfect as any similar
performance well could be.

clever performances, and well received by
the audience.

The most important incident of the day
was the delivery of Prof. Taylor's Inaugu
ral Address. He discussed at great length
and con amort the merits of Mathematical
Science in its abstract principles and prac
tical results ; referred to, and happily con
trasted, the Pride of Ignorance aud the
Pride of Science, and by a forcible aud
felicitous mode of illustration demonstrated
the folly of the latter, and pursued it to
complete annihilation. The greater part
of the Address was rather dry and abstract
for a popular audience, although able aud
deeply interesting, but near the close the
Prof, laid aside his manuscript and glasses
and concluded with an impressive and elo
quent allusion to the inevitable and inti
mate connection between the Natural sci
ences and revealed religion, and how cer
tainly the mind of the scientific enquirer
after truth must be led " from Nature up
to Nature's God." The Address will be
published shortly, and wc shall then niakc
extracts for our columns.
The vocal music with which tho exerci
ses were enlivened was of a high order of
excellence, and we think can not readily
be excelled in any town in the interior
of the State. There was great improve
ment over the musical performances at the
examinations at tho close of the last ses

needed, is to strengthen the air, which is
as yet rather weak for the other parts.

To Ihe Editor of the Letritburg Chronicle
I elip the following from the " Sunbury
American," in reference to Convention
No.2.held in New llerlin on the 12th inst
and as it contains in my opinion, the Sen
timents of the great majority of Democrats
in Uld Union, I respectiuiiy request its
publication in the Chronicle.
A Tbiir Dbmociat.
Lewisburg, Aug. J 1st.
Mr. Editor : I observe in the Lewisburg
Chronicle of the 21st inst., an address,
signed by thirty-seven citizens, calling
themselves Democrats, but who at the same
lime declare, in the most positive manner.
that ihey will oppose the nominations made
by the late Democratic County Cawiven-1
tion. Though many ol mem paniapawa
in electing Delegates to that Coavenrmn,
and with the long established usage of the
Demncratie party, cooseauentiv, tne lea
ders of this party can not any longer be
considered Democrats, as they epposo ike
principles on which Democracy is founded
as it is an absurdity in itseii, 10 suppose
thai fourteen delegates, (this being the
whole number favorable lo the nomination
or Mr. Slenker.) should regulate and con
trol convention consisting of forty.
Hence, would it not be fair to infer, tbat
the leaders of these thirty-seven elf-con
stituted guardiana of the Democracy of
Union county, nave espouseo ine cause
and doctrine of the Ami-Masons, and
throw themselves into the embraces of
lhat parly 1 This is interred from the
(act that they have arrayed themselves in

. . I F ... ..!.. . a o
'3S.and Burrows-line, recommended others
to treat the election as though it had a
l.b.n nlarJ S
It will be observed that we have not in
cluded Ibe whole of these thirty-seven
signers to the Address as really criminals,
in this crusade against the Democratic
oartv. as. no doubt, many of them are
still staunch, honest, adhering Democrats,
but have been led away from the true faith
by the misrepresentations of a few disap
pointed office seekers,who in all probibility
would go over to the Whigs at once, were
it not that they have more applicants for
office than vacancies to fill. But the num
ber of those that are really disaffected to
wards the Democratic party, perhaps do
not exceed six or eight some of them
having run as Delegates to the County
Convention, but were defeated ; and oth
ers, who hsve long been endeavoring to
be appointed Delegates to the 4th of March
State Convention, and were now again
defeated. This wss too much for these
great men calmly to submit to. Hence it
is presumed that their frantic imaginations,

beein to abuse a man down in Dauphin
