' lite Ledger of the 4th : '
Within the past year-the attention
bf lairge manlier ,of persona in. this vi
cinity has been turned-to the breeding of
chickens. The pure Shanghais, and oth
er valiiiible furls have been - setight after,.
and the China market visited for -a sup.
ply . of , the different species which are
designated by the fenders as the " real
genuine imported." . Sales have been
et - very high prices, and the amount now
realikted pays, a handshme profit for the
trouble and _ expense of breeding the
fowls.' The eggs of the pure stock corn;
mand.prices ranging from $7 to $3O per
dozen, and the chickens from $lO to $5O

of the yards of the fanciers about the ci
tviire good, - and much carp is-taken
. in
keeping separate the various kinds of
fowls, and different varieties of eggs and
the brooding of theme The progressive
spirit of the age demands greater facili
ties for breeding*. and,' instead of reali
zing the stock in the natural way. steam
and other agents are applied. The new
methods have proved successful, and
when they become more general, the im
pression is that fanciers will have a much
greater desire to increase their stock than
dispose of the eggs at any price. One
of these fast breeding machines is in op.
eration in West P4iladelphia, at the es
tablishment of Mr. Robert A. Smith.=
The principal agent is steam from man
ure, which is thrown upon the top of the
ovens. The ovens are made perfegly
airtight, so , that the smell arising , frchn
the manuie is kept entirely from-41re.,
broods, and the practical operation is-wit
nessed without the least offensive odor.
Mr. Smith first tried the experiment of
breeding in this manner with ' one dozen
eggs, and on the twentieth day some of
theellickens were hatched ; on the twen
ty-second day ten of the twelve eggs pro
duted.chickens. The ovens are so con
structed that 1000 or 2000 eggs can be
put in thern at a time, which ivill proba
bly-produce a proWtionate number of
young chickens. In the hatchingoveni,
a thermometer is placed,. by which the
heat, which is required _to_be about 97
degrees, is regulated. The manure, it is
said, causes heat frequently to rise as
high, as 120 degrees; but a ventilator in
the door ,of the oven is used to prevent
the excess. The eggs are laid on cotton,
and, after biinfPlaced in the ovens, are
left undisturbed until the chickens are
hatched. A simple„ machine has been
used by Mr. Keen, in West Philadelphia,
very-successfully: Dr. James McClin
tock, at his residence on the Frankford
road, in Armingo township, has the most
complete irrangements for raising chick
ens in the country. His collection is
very fine, and compriseskthe pure Shang.
hail, Palmer importations 'of Shangliais,
Marsh, Perly, Forbes, Brahma, Pcotras,,
Back Bantams, tad the Imperial Chi
nese, imported by himself. Each spe
cies are kept by themselves in yards,
some 20 by 50 feet, with houses coven'.
ently constructed and dividedin different
apartments, with nests for depoiiting the
eggs for brooding, and for roosts. The
utmost care is taken of the stock, and the
buildings are cleaned every morning.—
They have been thoroughly whitened
by a preparation for ° that purpose and e
verything is-kept in the most perfect or
der and clennlinels. Dr. McClintock has
the most extensive stock in the,,country ;
and the pains•he has taken witlillie'fowls
promises to be of much pecuniary ad
vantage to him. Another sale of Shang
hais took place at •Woolbert's auction
rooms, in Market street, on Saturday,
which attracted a large company. The
price, paid were higher than any previ
ous salee, as follows t--Shanghais, per

nas $lO per pair.
An Ugly Editor.
A recent 'number of the Democratic
Review contained a . likenese of Bennett,
of the. New York Herald, which Pren
tice_thue hits off
Bennett'a. portrait is, terrific. Such
a thing ought never to be painted or de
guerreotpyed. It ought to be considered
a penal offence to make anything so re
volting to all our ideas of propriety. No
than has a right to monopolize so much
ugliness. If Bennett's ugliness could be
distributed over a thousand faces, it
vsrauld make each of them intensely,
hatefully ugly. He ought not to be per
mitted to go into the street without a
blanket over his awful frontispiece. No
wonder'that so many of the New York
children. die (If convulsions, since Ben
nett Is permitted to walk abroad with un
covered face. We once heard of a man's
face that was so ugly that it was placed
on andirons for the purpose of frighten
ing children from the fire, with much ef
fect: No child dared appronch - the and
irons, and the liability to combusiiith from
such a case was greatly lessened.:` If
Bennett's ugly likeness wertstaseped tin
fire-places, the effect would be decidedly
bad, for the children would not dare to
go near enough to the fire to keep warm,
and would become frost-bitten and per

It is probably the most enterprising newspaper
_establishment in the world.
Considerable sensation was created in Wash
ington on Monday, by a rumour, of a sudden
break-up in President Pierce's Cabinet. It
had its origin in the singular attempt to re-as
semble the Senate, after it had finally adjour
ned. Several Senators had left the city, and
others Who were packing up to go were called
up at Midnight by theZergeant-at-Arms, with
the request from the President thattey should
remain. It was confidently stated that Mr.
Marcy had withdrawn from the Cabinet, and
that Mr. Cushing was to take the Premiership,
Mr. Dobbin' the Attorney Generalsbip, , and
Commodore Stockton the post of Secrettiry of
the Navy. The reports did not prove true,
however. The great emergency for which the
Senate was summoned, proved to be the nom=
ination of Mr. Buchanan as Minister to En
7-gland. Ile was 'confirmed without oppoSition,
and it is understood ho accepts. Mr. Soule
sent in his resignation as Senator, having ac
cepted the mission to Spain.,
The work of removing Whig office holders
goes on with alacrity. The last Washington
Union, (the.official organ) contains two col
uinns and a half of appointments made by the
President, with the consent of the Senate.—
These ire only the chief official statibns. The
great mass of office-holders are under the di
rection of the Heads of Departments and
other officials who are appointed bsr the Pres
ident, such as Postmasters, Custom House of
ficers, Re., &o. They number many thous
. ands; but their appointments are only noticed,
in the local papers. The work of removing
these incumbents, and filling their places, is
going on as rapidly as practicable, but with a
snail's pace in the estimation of the place
aeekers. The present prospect is that'a clean
sweep will be made in the first six months of
the Administration ; and as that was the main'
object of the election of Pierce, public expec-.
tation is likely to be realized. From the
thousands of appointments made within the
last ten days we select the following.
Ex-Senator Daniel Sturgeon, of Penns.ybia

Both houses have resolved to adjourn on
the 19th instant. , The appropriation bill be
fore the House embraces, thollarrisburg Tel
egraph says; an amount exceediqg $5,000,000.
The following are items in it: For the com
pletion of the North Branch Canal, $350,000;
for the Allegheny Portage railroad, $413,000,
and a further conditional appropriation — of
$lOO,OOO, if the money is found in - the Treas.
ury; for the Columbia railroad, $187,000.
The discussion on the Appropriation bill, as.
we see by the reports, has been verelwarm,
and has been Mhrked by severe attao Lon the
Canal Boa , d, who aro boldly accused by mein
bore of their own party With the grossest
mismanagement, corruption and fraud.
Mr. Wavrot , t, of Armstrong, democrat, de
clared that the Portage _ Road was conceived
in sin, .and if completed would bo brought
forth in iniquity. The sooner the State was
rid of it the better. Ho would not vote a
dollar for the ftirther prosecution of the work, -
and thought it, the true policy of the State to
sell itand got rid of its muse of corruption.
Mr. Coon, of Westmoreland, (dem.) contended
that both the Portage Road and the North
Branch Canal bad been a curse to the State—
they had cost millions more than they had re
turned, and were an incubus on the energies
of the State. Mr. liesnsizsos, of Cumber
land, was opposed to making any appropriation
to either, until some guarantee was given that
the money would be faithfully expended: He
thought the better disposition of the matter
would bo either to- sell or lease the public
works to companies, and thus release the State -
from the immense corruptions which their
continuance engenders. Mr. Kemal of Erie,
said,it had been shown that the statements of
the Canal Commissioners were' false and con
veyed false impressions to the public, and as
they could not be relied on, and, the present
time was auspicious for their sale, it ought to
be done - and - Hie corruption which was now
detiolating the - State put an end to. Mr. Men-
SUMAC (democrat) 'also attacked the Canal
Board with great severity, and declared that
there could be found in the office of the Canal
Board, a forged receipt having his name upon it,
and purporting to be a receipt signed by him
for several hundred dollars for railroad "ties,"
and that ho bad never furnished ties, and had
never signed a receipt. Mr. KILBOIIN desired
to know if Mr ; M. accused the Canal Corn.
missioners of forgery, and was answered that
ho accused no ono, but stated a fact which was
susceptible of proof. It was also declared
that one hundred-and fifty thousand dollars
had been squandgred by the Canal Board du- ,
ring the past year by - giving contracts to, men
who were' not expected to 511 them at the
prices taken, and the prices afterward in
creased. In the afternoon session a commu
nication was received from the Board, asking
.for a committee of investigation,,in relation to
this charge. Something must be rotten in that
An umbrella has been found in the store of
Mr. Rink, on Chesnut street, Philadelphia,
the proprietor of which, it will be remembered,
was murdered last winter, which has been
fully identified by the Ragan family es one

Mrs. Ragan positively identifies it from three
small patches she bad put upon, and Mr. Re
gan by a piece of wire which he had attached
to it. On the day Rink was murdered, Spring
was at work for Ragan, and was drunk; and
in the afternoon ho obtained some small change
from Mr. R. and left the house. The knife
with width Rink was stabbed, it-is supposed,

obtained from Ragan. The murder spoken of

According to the Philadephia papers, Spring
not only murdered Mrs. Shaw and Mrs. Lynch,
and the unfortunate Rink, but is now the sus
pected murderer of Win. Hope, of Kingsessing,
in Philadelphia county, about twelve years ago;
Mr. Hope was the proprietor of a truck form,
and kept a stand in Philadelphia opposite the
store then kept by Spring, who became intimate
with him;,and it' is said that Hope, who was a ' ,
kind hearted, honest man, often loaned money)
to Spring. The latter paid many visits to the
truck farm, and Wail often seen in company with
Mr. Hope, both , there and hi Philadelphia.—
One. morning Mr. Hope was found.about twen
ty yards from his own gate, most horribly:man
gled and lacerated with an axe,. whichwarais

although, the murder at the time created intense

Mr, Hope had a largo amount of money, which
he kept in a stove, and, as it was .norilisturbed

PIIMADEVPIIIA, April 7.—Tho second trial
of Spring, for murder, was concluded last
night a few minutes after 11 o'clock, When
the jury retired, and this morning,.ori. the as-
sembling of the court, they rendered a ver
dict of "guilty of murder in,the first degree."
After the jury wore polled, the prisoner
asked permission to make tystatement. Leave
was granted and he made a long address,
giving an account of his acquaintance with
the murdered women, and his visits to their
house, • He says his son told him he would
go to
,Carroll's house. on Thursday night and
get tho money, Lynoh having gone to New
York. He tried to dissuade him from the
robbery, but no mention was made of murder.
His son told• him on that night to go to bed,
and ho dill 0: The boy came home.some
time in the night and asked fot a pocket bock.
He said he had the money. He went out in
'the morning and bought the shirts, but only
gave him (Spring) a dollar note and.a gold
dollar. His son ... paid nothing of the murder
and he knew nailing of it till ho was arrested.
He closed with solemn asseverations of his own
innocence and the guilt of his son. He was
willing to die, but would die innocent.
Judge Kelly rebuked the priaoner for his
hardihood in persisting in such improbable
statement when his moments on earth
were numbered. He went over the history of
his son and the evidence in the case to show
how utterly false wail all that fie had uttered;
He 'concluded by.urging him not to die with a
falsehood on his lips, but by , telling the truth
to clear the character of his son from sus
picion. I - .
Sentence' was deferred, and the prisoner
sent back to Prison. The court house and
vicinity were densely thronged bu,t no mani
festation 'of feeling took place, though the
crowd wore evidently overjoyed at the result.
Col. Perry, the editor of the Southern Pa
triot, writing from Washingtcin, where he, is
engaged as counsel: lathe Opdinerease, says:

it was currently reported that a forthcoming
work of LAYARD'S, in which his more recent
antiquarian researches would betiven, would
octet discredit upon many portions of the Bi
ble. The work has appeared, but the very
reverse proves to be Hie cnse. The New York
Commercial, in speaking of it, says:
" Mr. Layard's volunie abounds with cor
roborations of the historical portions of the
Testament. Mound after mound, palace
after palace; and even tombs and hidden vaults
testify to the'mibute, truthfulness of that in
spired volume. Hosts of witnesses aro dis
entombed from the hoary and almost forgotten
past, and, by the grandeur. and majesty of
their testimony, expose the shallowness and
ignorance of scoffers of the present. It would
be an interesting task to gather into one vol
ume these corroborations:"
oitement has existed in Cincinnati, for some
time about Free Schools. The Roman Catho
lics attempted to abolish .them—the Protest
ants took the other side. Last week the ques
tion came up before the municipal election,
and the school party wore victorious. The
returns for Couneilinen and School Trustees
show an' overwhelming majority for Free
Schools. Mr. Pratt, the leader of the Catho
lic movement against the Schools, was defeat
ed for Councilman in the ward which bad
elected him ,or the past two years. This re

is right on. this great question.
RAILROAD InoN.—The Boston Railroad Times
states that tire railroads now in tit% course of
coustruction in Europe and America will re
quire for their completion no less than two
millions and four hundred thousand tons of
Iron. To make this quantity will occupy all
the rolling mills in the world, , which are ep
ged in the manufacture of' railroad iron, at
least six years—those of Great Britaih fur
nishing three-fourtlis, and the United States,.
France and Belgium the remaining fourth.—,
In View of these facts,it is anticipated 'that
prices will further advance, and that the man
facture of iron will continue to be a very prof
itable business. -?
