Saturday afternoon last, as a son of Mr.
JWI Rangier of Buffalo Tp was returning
Lome with Mr. It 's six-horse team, after
delivering a load of wlicat in town, the
Iioibco (boing Wt alone at Christ & Mc
Faddin's Foundry) took fright, and whee
ling short about, left part of the wagon on
the street, and took their way at full speed
down the whole length of Market street,
but, (not being prepared, probably, to pay
toll on the Bridge,) they wheeled around
Mr.Weidensiul's corner, into Water street,
where one of the horses fell, and after be
ing dragged some distance and badly inju
red, brought the team to a halt. No other
injury was done, altho' the race extended
to a distance of nearly eight squares, and
Market St. was more than usually crowded.

Fugitlve Slave Law.
As the jury failed to agree upon the
facts in tlie case of Oliver against KaufF
man, iu the U. S. Circuit Court at Phila
delphia, (the trial of which was published
in the Chronicle two weeks since,) no
decision was made by the Court upou the
points raised with regard to the freedom
of the alleged fugitives ; but they will
probably be disposed of iu the next trial
of the exsc.
Iu bin charge to the jury, Judge Crier
stated that it was " too plain for argument,
that the act of 1793 did not iutend to
make common charity a crime, or treat
that man as guilty of an offence against
his neighbor, who merely furnishes food, j fatal in a quarter of an hour. In one

contemplates not only the escape of the '
slave, but the intention of the master to i the ground, one Sunday, because no one

whieh this reclamation is to be made ; and itntiary convicts accepted the Governor's
it is for an unlawful interference or hind-' offer of freedom, if they would bury the
rauec of this right of reclamation, secured ;
to the master by the Constitution and
laws, that this jicnalty is imposed. The ,
Larbtirui" made criminal by this act, then, i
. . '
requires sonic other liigreuieiit besnies a ,

mere kindness, or charity rendered to the t
fugitive. There must be a kuowletlgc !
that the person harbored or concealed is a
fugitive from labor; and formal notice of
the latter fact, from the owner, is not nec
essary. The intention or purpose which
accompanies the act of kindness or chari
ty, must be to encourage the fugitive iu
his desertion of his master, to further his
escape, and frustrate his reclamation. The
act uiust evince an intention to elude the
vigilance of the master, and be calculated
to attaiu the object."
Judge Grier has also published a
semi-judicial opinion, in reply to a letter
on the subject from Charles Gibbons, Kstp,
that the new fugitive slave law does wl
require that a judge should, without trint,
surrender a citizen of Pennsylvania to a
kidnapper. The provision " that in no
trial or hearing, under this act, shall the
testimony of such fugitive be admitted in
evidence" is no more than the enactment
of an established principle of the common
law, that no man shall bear witness in his
own cause. "The act contemplates a
trial aud a decision of the Court or Judge,
involving questions both of law and fact,
aud unless the rules of the common law,
as to evidence, be followed, when not
changed by statute, the tribunal would be
without rule, governed only by caprice, or
undefined discretion, which would be the
exercise of a tyrannical, not a judicial,
power. It is tlie duty of the Judge who
presides, to render equal justice both to
the claimant and the person claimed. If
evidence were heard on one side only, and
that, too, without regard to any rule or
principle known to the law, gross oppres
sion aud wrong would flow from it. Free
men and citizens of Pennsylvania .might
be kidnapped into bondage, under forms
of law ; aud by the action of a legal tri
bunal, sworn to do equal aud exact jus
tice to all men. This much maligned law
not only gives a ' trial,' before a legal tri
buual, before the claimant can be author
ized to carry the fugitive out of the State,
but it takes away from th prisoner no
right which he would have enjoyed before
the act of Congress was passed."
As considerable feeling exists in this
community on the subject of the new fu
gitive slave law, we have given place tj
the above extracts that our readers may
know what aspect the law bears, under
the practice as laid down by the Courts.
It will be seen that much of its supposed
harshness is thus considerably softened.
But there are still other odious and im
practicable features about the law that will
require material modification at the hands
of Congress, before the great body of the
people at the North will rest satisfied with
its practical operation.

Cholera at Jamaica.
Wc learn, from the N. Y. Evening W,
that the Cholera is raging with frightful
violence on the island of Jamaica, West
Indies ; aud dreadful as it has bcea, the
physicians think its dcstructivcncss has on
ly commenced. The later eases proved
of Spanishtown, the scat of Government
of the Island, 25 bodies were left above
dead, but most of them died shortly after
0f the epidemic. There is a great scarci-
ty of medical men. One physician made
over eighty calls in a sinine day ; and scv-
end had died from the diMrx'c. or over-
exertion and exposure. The hope was
entertained that New York would send
out some physicians by the next steamer.
The epidemic had brokeu out with great
violence in the 07th regiment, stationed
at New Castle, in the mountains, at the
healthful elevation of 4000 feet above the
level of the sea. The disease is spreading
all over the island, and carries with it ter
ror and distress.

Another Fire la Northumberland!
On last Saturday evening, about I
o'clock another fire broke out in Northum
berland, and burnt down Mark . Pricstly's
dwelling house; the stabling formerly con
nected with Mrs. Withington's Hotel; and
a blacksmith shop. Mr. Priestly saved
his furniturc,but four valuable horses be
longing to Thompson's Express, were con
sumed with the stables. The fire is be

" Eueourage ymr otrn Xeighlmrs Jtrrt,"
is a capital motto. It is a duty it is a
pleasure it is public policy it is private
policy. Encourage your neighbor shoe
maker, your neighbor Tailor, your neigh
bor Printer ; and they will encourage jou
in their turn. If yu send abroad for
your work, tiny may do the same; and
your means, instead of making your own
home thriving, will go to build up towns
abroad, aud to enrich people in whose
welfare you have no particular interest.
No true friend of his neighbors will with
hold from them his patronage, simply be
cause they can not work as cheap; in the
long run, and by the means of home pay
ment, they are the cheapest. Many who
j buy abroad, get the worst ot the bargains.
i Yuu. will remember the case of the proud
man, who thought his neighboring me
chanics could not make furniture, Sic,
good enough for him, and sent to " the
City " for the same : and when it was re
ceived, he found it was second-hand furni
ture, "made in his own town ! There arc
very many such " speculations " made by
going from home for what should be got
at home. Farmers, merchants, and pro
fessional men lose money by sending it to
be buried in the mammoth city establish
ments, instead of keeping it circulating
in their neighborhood.
" Sirintfling in, Xi-w York " shows Low
much of the "cheap" work is obtained!
it is wrung from the very life and soul of
the poor and despairing widows and or
phan girls are by heartless capitalists kept
in a state of abject misery, preparing gar
ments, tie., to be sold u cheap " through
out city and country. There arc thousands
of such knavish establishments, and suf
fering fellow-beings, who aro kept one
in wealth, the others in misery by the
thoughtless demand for " cheap" articles.
Let every honest man let all who hare
human hearts not only denounce such
villainy, but, by knowing who make their
clothing and shoes, be sure they are paid
for honestly. Such imposition must not
only be denounced, but put down by ab
staining from any encouragement of it by
sharing its supposed profits. Whose heart
does not weep when he thinks of the thou
sands in our cities, thus dragging out a
woful existence, when there are millions
of acres of good laud, unoccupied, where
they might with far less labor obtain a
good livelihood! How foolish the poor
and feeble are, to rash into cities for em
ployment ! One of the best benevolent ef
forts of the day would be, to publish such
facts and put in operation such means, as
would induce the suffering poor in our
cities to obtain employment in the country.

arts. There are still unprincipled prin

War in HaytL
Advices from Jcremie, liay ti, to the 15th
of October, state thnt hostilities have actu
ally commenced between the Hayticns and
Dominion.- On the 9 h instant, as the
vanguird of SoLot'Qi'E's army was desend
ing 1 h Pass nl Bonica, they were attacked
by about SOO Dominican troops, who
drove bck the Hnviens with terrible
l.my.hit-r. The announcement ol this de
file skirmish caused much uneasiness to
the Emperer, who marched on the 11th
from Petit Urate, nt the head of his staff
and 400 of his guard, to lake the field in
person against the Dominicans. In addi
tion to the above defeat, a I lay lien brig-of-war,
with 250 men onboard, was captured
off Scott's Bay by two Dominican schoo
ners of war, or gun boats, and carried as
a trophy into Macao Roadsteal- These
hostilities have had a very disaslarous ef
fect on the trade of the island. There was
' no coffee to be had, and the cutting of log
wood and mahogany, was under restriction.
Rumors ol War between Brazil and Bu
enos Ayrcs. Letters from Buenos A) res,
of Sept. 3J, state that the city is full of ru
mors that a declaration of war between
Buenos Ay res and Brazil is soon to take
place. These rumors, the letters state, are
in everybody's mouth, but are not tracea
ble to any authen'ic source. The relations
between the two countries are of such a
nature, however, that such an event is by
no means improbable.
" Seeing the Elephant"
After the exhibition of the Menngrric
on Wednesday Afternoon last, (he ele
phants were chained to different logs to
remain over night. About two o'clock
next morning the smaller one, Tippoo Sul
tan, attracted by some eatables in Ihe cel
lar of a neighboring house, moved in that
direction, bearing with him the log to
which he was chnined. After breaking
in the cellar doors, he discovered that the
vegetables and other things so much to be
desired by him, could not ho retched in
thai minncr, and he very gently com
menced to move the house a little out of
his way. This operation awakened the
family, who arose to sec the came of their
unnatural disturbance. Upon ascertaining
they decamped to inform ihe keeper that
they had "seen the elephant,'' and desired
that ihey might also see him taken lo his
old stand. The keeper arrived but not in
time to save the house from being utterly
demolished, as it had been moved entirely
off its foundation. Tippoo Sultan was
then better secured for the remainder of
the night. Schuylkill Haven Mip.
