transaction must appal every one
fiifi.lieartof the most obdurate
oiuiwu uuw ,
No sumpathy can be felt tor the per-
petratororperpeiraiors; lurue oueuw
noniri nromDt to such an act. It must
have been either the fiendish working
of a heart black as the "Prince of
Darkness" himself, or of that most
damnsble engine of crime and misery,
We are indebted to the politeness
of Mr. Eiter for the particulars of the
- ransaction, who received tliam m a
' 3tter trom a gentleman in Hunting
ton. They are set forth as follaws :
" A horrid scene was enacted in
Hill Valley, in this county, ou Satur
day evening last. The wife of Mr.
I3rown and live of his children were
murdered. The wife and one son
vere found in the house the wife's
throat out from ear to ear, and the
. on shot through the body; at some
distance from the hous was found
two other children, one of them shot
and the other killed with a club or
some other instrument ; and in ano
ther direction in the wood the two
others were found, one shot and the
other was killed with a club. Mr.
Brown has been arrested, also, Mc
Conahy, his son-in-law, and McCon
ahy's brother. Brown denies, says
he wae from home, and on his return
found the door of his house fastened ;
whilst standing there he was shot at
and narrowly missed; another gun
was discharged, which grazed his
cheek and perforated the lower part
of his ear and passed through his hat.
Tins I hear is his story. The Mc
Conahy's, it is said, tell contradictory
stojias. To-day these three men are
undergoing an examinatian before a
Justice in Shirley sburg, and witnesses
are being examined. The bodies
were all buried yesterday after an
inquest had been held."
A Fatal Steamboat jCartjplty.
The New York Sun states that the
steamboat Citizen, Capt. Yates, left
that city on Sunday, with about 150
passengers, a large number of whom
were females, on an excursion round
Staten Island. Whe she hae pro
ceeded about 17 miles, and was pass
ing through Staten Island Sound, a
bout a mile beyond Elizabeth Town
Point, one of the brace bolts of the
boiler gtzve way, leaving a hole abeut
an inch in diameter, through" which
the hot water escaped, and forcing
olf one of the panels of the boiling
chamber, which was secured only by
two buttons, caused the hot watei to
rush towards the outside of the boat,
severely scalding a passenger on his
leg. The panel also struck the same
individual on his face, bruising his
nose, and otherwise injuring his face
considerably. No other person was
injured by the accident, but great a-
larm was excited a large number of
passengers were dreadfully frighten
ed, three of them jumped overboard,
one of whom was picked up by the
small boat that was immediately low
ered, and two of them were drowned.
The names of those drowned are
Wm. F. Warner, journeyman brass
founder, 19 years old, of No. 97 James
street, and the other Benjamin B. Dis
brow, tailor, of Stanton street, near
Columbia, whare he has left a wife
and child. He was a native of Ma
mironeck. Another got over on the
side, who secured himself on the rud
der, and was again got on hoard.
The bout rounded to, and after the
water had run down to the level of;
the eole it ceased to flow, and the va
pour it created, cleared away. A
number of the passengers were taken
olf by the steamer Water Witch, and
brought to this city, where the Citi
zen after a plug was driven into the
bolt hole soon arrived also.
A Wife Killed by her Husband.
We learn that on Saturday night in
New Xork, u wretch named William
Carrol, residing at No. 406 Cherry
street, erot into a quarrel with his wife
who was far advanced in pregnancy
and fell upon her and abused her m
a shocking manner. The wretch
knocked the poor creature down and
then stamped upon her and kicked
her repeately in various parts of the
body. The ruffian was given in charge
of officer Harmon 5. iUng, by Al
derman Smith, and committee to the
city prison watch, house.
In a short time altor her ill treat
ment. Mrs. Carroll was seized with
premature labor, and gave birth to a
dead child, lulled by the brutality or
the father. From this time the inju
red woman gradually sunk until death
terminated her sufferm?:.

alone would be price of the paper for a wholeyear.

UPON, as nothing important is permitted to es
cape a notice in its columns.
Our arrangements enable us to - draw from the
whole range of the current Literature of Europe,
and our Correspondents at home embrace many
of the best Writers of this country.
This approved Family paper is strictly Neutral
in Politics and Religion, and the uncompromising
opponent of all Quackery.
In the Courier is inserted the music of the most
popular Airs, Ballads and Songs, as soon as they
are imported . so that country readers may have the
most popular music for the voice, the piano, the
guitar, or other instruments, as soon as published,
which if paid for separately would cost more than
the price of subscription. This perfected arrange
ment is to be found in no other journal of the kind.
The price of ihe COURIER is only $2.
When individuals wish to subscribe to the Cou
rier, a sure way is to enclose the money in a let

A tew Weekly Paper, to be published at Strouds-
hurg, Monroe County, ra., and Miltord,
Pike County, Pa., simultaneously.
The whole art of Government consists in the art
of being honest. Jefferson.
THE JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN
in principle, will be all its title purports, the firm
and unwavering advocate of the principles and
doctrines of the democratic party, delineated by
the illustrious Jefferson : the right of the peo
ple to think, to speak, and to act, independent
ly, on all subjects, holding themselves respon
sible to no power for the freo exercise of this
right, but their God, their Country, and her
Laws, which they themselves have created.
A free and untrammeled Press, conducted in a
spirit worthy of our institutions, is a public bles
sing, a safeguard to the Constitution under which
we live, and it should be cherished and support
ed by every true republican. Such, then, it is
designed to make the paper now estab
lished, and as such, the publisher calls up
the enlightened citizens of Monroe and Pik to
aid him in this laudable enterprise. The time
has arrived when the Press should take a bold
and faarless stand against the evidently increas
ing moral and political degeneracy of the day,
and endeavor, by a fair, candid, and honorable
course, to remove those barriers whioh section
al prejudices, party spirit, and party animosity
have reared to mar the social relations of men
without accomplishing any paramount good.
THE JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN
will not seek to lead or follow any faction, or to
advocate and support the schemes of any par
ticular set of men. It will speak independent
ly on all State and National questions, award
irig to each that support which its merits may
demand, never hesitating, however, to condemn
such measures, as in the opinion of the editor is
justly warranted, holding as a first principle :
" The greatest good to the greatest number."
Believing that the great principles of democ
racy are disregarded by the present Chief Ma
gistrate of the Nation, Martin Van Buren,
the JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN, will
decidedly, but honorably oppose his re-election
to the high and responsible station which he
It will firmly oppose the " Independent Trea
sury" Scheme, and all other schemes having
for their object tbe concentration in the hands
of one man, and that man the President of tho
Nation, all power over the public moneys, a.
power, which, when combined with that vest
ed in him by the Constitution as Commander-in-Chief
of the American forces, Military and
Naval, together with an enormous official pa
tronage, would render him more powerful than
the Executive of the British Nation, and in
short make our Government, da facto an Elec
It will ever maintain that the welfare of our
Country and the preservation of her Republican
Institutions should be the first and only senti
ments of our hearts in the choice of our public
servants ; that honesty, fidelity, and capability,
are the only true tests of merit ; that all men
are created equal, and, therefore, should alike
enjoy the privileges conferred on them by tho
Constitution without being subject to proscrip
tion, or coerced by fhe influence of party.
The columns of the JEFFERSONIAN
REPUBLICAN will ever be open to the free
discussion of all political questions, believing
as we do, that there is no liberty where both
sides may not be heard, and where one portion
of freemen are denied the privilege of declar
ing their sentiments through the medium of tho
Press, because they differ from the majority.
The JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN
will ever take a lively interest in the affairs of
Monroe and Pike, and of the Senatorial and
Congressional Districts with which they arc
The Farmer, the Merchant, the Mechanic,
and the Laborer, will each find a friend in the
columns of the JEFFERSONIAN REPUB
L1CAN. Due care will be taken to furnish its
readers with the latest Foreign and Domestic
News, and such Miscellaneous reading as will
be both interesting and instructive. In short it
is designed to make the paper worthy of an ex
tensive patronage, both from the strictly moral
tone which it will ever possess, and the efforts
of the editor to make it a pood and useful
The JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN
will be printed on a super-royal sheet of good
quality, and with good type.
Terms $2 in advance ; $2,25 at the end of
six months, and $2,50 if not paid before the ex

LADIES' COMAPNIOR , j
New Volume commenced with the May Number.
TTF, "Ladies' Companion, established in May,
lB3d n nnnnlnr and hiphlv esteemed maerazine of
General Literature and the Fine Arts; embellish
with gorgeous and costly engravings on steel, and
the Quarterly fashions ; and also with Fashiona
ble and popular Music, arranged for the Piano
Forte, and Guitar.
Since the publication of the number for Novem
ber, the demand for the Ladies' Companion has
been unprecedented and beyond the most sanguine
anticipations. At the commencement of the vol
ume an additional number of copies were printed,
which was considered at the time adequate to sa
tisfy all the orders which might be received, and
leave a considerable number on hand for subse
quent calls. The publisher is more than gratified
in stating that the whole of an edition of six thou
sand, five hundred copies, was completely exhaus
ted before the issuing of the third number of the
volume ; and, consequently, he was compelled to
reprint a second edition of two thousand copies,
making the circulation of the Ladies' Companion
eight thousand five hundred, at the termination of
the tenth volume. In consequence of this great
and unparalleled increase of new subscribers, ho
has determined to commence the new volume for
he ensuing year with thirteen thousand : hoping
that he will thus be enabled to supply all the de
mands for the Ladies' Companion, as well as those
disappointed in commencing with the tenth vol
ume. The proprietor feels grateful for that en
couragement which has been so lavishly bestowed
upon his magazine, and at the same time he begs
to assure the readers of the Ladies' Companion,
that it is determined resolution to meet it with a
corresponding liberality to merit its continuance.
The work appears in beautiful new type, printed
on the finest paper ; smoothly pressed, and neatly
stitched in a handsome cover.
The Ladies' Companion contains a larger quan
tity of reading than any other magazine issued in
in this country, and its subscription price is only
three dollars a year, while the great combination
of talent secured for the coming year will render
it unequalled by any other periodical.
Splendid Steel Engravings, prepared by Mr. A.
Dick, ornament the work one of which accompa
nies each number. These plates" are entirely new,
and are engraved at a heavy expense by one of the
best arstists in America, expressly for the maga

The subscriber will issue weekly from the
press of the Boston Daily Times, and Bonton
Notion, a publication of the above title, in eight
imperial folio pages, each page being half the
size of the page of the Bohton Notion.
Each sheet will contain one volume of a
Novel, of the ordinary octavo size, and will
form a series of all the most popular English
Novels and Romances of the day ; with such
desirable ancient works as are not to be ob
tained at the booksellers. Arrangements hav
ing been made in London to secure the earli
est reception of new books, this republication
will be the firstin this country.
The cheapness with which books can in this
manner be afforded, renders it an object for
booksellers and others to give their orders
early, as the edition will be limited, at first to
Five Thousand Cofiies, and many persons will
desire to secure and bind the year's volume,
which will be equal to Fifty two Octavo Vol
ume, for FOUR DOLLARS. Thus copies
of valuable works may be obtained for a trifle
more than is paid to Circulating Libraries
merely for one perusal.
The sheet will be printed in handsome style,
with a folio and running head to each page,
wide margin and good register ; thus render
ing it fit to preserve for binding at the expira
tion of each year.
Teums. Four dollars per annum; two dol
lars and a half for six months ; three copies
for ten dollars ; five copies for sixteen dollars;
