- -- There•are-two-clauses -- partienlarly-we'
wished to assign as errors in the charge
of the Court, the - impoetance of which ,
does not clearly appear on The record.
The first where the Court remarked :
" We have no evidence of the Symptoms

Prof. Wormley says, are silent on.this
'suhject, 'But the same Professor states
in his work upon poisons, that the action
of one poison may be modified hyrhe
presence of another, which is illustrated,
&e," (Here a case is given,) and the
Court then continued : "If the - action of

once of another. 'and if strychnine, opium,
and qUinhse, would not, cause death in
as short a time as strychhinemlone,. then

net be that the symptomsproduce

period within which death would ensue,

could have convinced the Supreme Court
iliht Prof. \ • ormley nowhere holdS • "that
one poisoh may be modified b the pres
ence of another," except in cases of
a ntagn ni.4lic poisons : and as prussic acid
and morphia are both narcotics, and not
antagonistic, the argument of 'the Court
was orroueous, and based on a miscon
ception of the facts. It was very preju
dicial to the prisoner, 'because 'it war:

opinion and his hawk story have become
the subjectof derision with'the Whole
medical profession. We -look upon
this portion of the. char e .of the
Court as clearly error, and as all

during the war we doubt, if any such
mortality prevailed among none who
~had earned for' themselves the title of
"Great." But a short time ago the death
of Franklin Pierce, the only survivor of
. the Presidents who were chosen. by the
people, 'as announced. , Then we heard
that John Hell and William Pitt ?omen
den were no inure. And during 'the last
two weeks, Amos Kendall, -Robert J.
Walker, George Peabody, Commodore
-Charles Stewart, and' General John..E.
Wool, have been numbered with the
dead. Here is a death record of great
andinournful interest. It would Uo diffl
milt to name any. equal number of men
who have been so conspicuous in - the
country's history. Wool, a veteran Hero,
who bad made an hOnorable record in

exploits in the war of 1812 - make so

unconstitutionality of justice ; of the in

The Democratic camp -in cumberland
county is liVely, decidedly. In fact it is
little, short of being mutinous. There
was a time when all was harmony—when
the Whole party drew its inspirationk from
the - s."Am - z , ource r =believed-the t sa nie-tbsc
trines, and' followed, the 13ame leaders.
But things' have changed immensely.
iTile party, now, has many chiefs, but no
ti ing. Each chief thinks it is his pre
rogative to run the party machine.. This
gives' rise to jealousies, and jealousy gets
up angel.. Angry people are always im
prudent, and given to say ugly, things of
thdse whom theydo n't like, and this
makes matters very unpleasant to• the
parties in interest, but very entertaining
to outsiders. - • •

was modest, but vigorous; the: Sentinel
is not particularly savage, but very ex
haustive. .16 editorial is the longest ex
tant. If brevity isn't the soul of wit,
thew it is the wittiest concern in the
county. .The Sentinel, certainly, has
great talent fur combination. Its article
combines both the editorial and the pros
pectus. It is political, biographical, auto
biographical; sensational, and occasioU , :.
ally grammatical., As to which
party will demolish the other, in
tlps fight, we Vave n't seen' enough
yet to predict. Perhaps they will play
quits, now, -that each has had his say ;
although; as matter for political articles
is scarce, perhaps they may continue
the , fight,. just for' the exercise.' fie

The medical students in Philadelphia
succeeded, a short time since, in making
themselves uncomfortably conspicuous.
On Saturday, of week before last; a num
ber of female students of 'medicine pre
seiated. themselves at a clinical lecture, at .
the Pennsylvania Hospital. ThiS Wha Veit/
objectionable in the °yea of the male stu
dents, Vi!lio had, heretofore; had a mi
,nopoly-Of the benefits of these lectures,:
and they proceeded, at once; . to make it
,uncoinfOrtable for the laglies. . During.
the lecture, the refined fellows hooted
and - hissed the ladies, and (ATIL3£110.11;1_
taroetreliticd.fter leaving the lecture'rciom,
they continued their insulting .demon
strations •as long as they , •vrerp in
hearing. For this inexcusable behavior,
the paPets, not only, in Philadelphia, but
throughout the country; have given the
young gentleman - the-benefit of extended
notices,. which; it notiltogother compli
mentary, hope, have• the effect
of, impi•oving their manners. ' •
G6nerally, there are two' sides to a.
,questh36, and, doubtless, Vie' students
will insist that there mnn solno justifica
tion, or, at least excuse fdt their action;
but, in this case, this cannot be conceded.
The lady students had :paid the "fee for
adinittancorto tho - had re
ceived the consent Of the management to
be pi:pont, and having then, chosen to at
tend, the matter was at end. If any fas
tidious young gentleman objected to
being in the room -with the ladies, he
could hive decently demanded that thOy
bo'excluded from the -room,-and if, that
was refused, there was nothing at all 'to
prevent his own withdrawal. But in.
stord of a madly course,- the students saw

unfoitunately, among ; very, 4... many.
members of inifeesiOn;
a very strong desire - to throw all possible
obstacles in the way of the admission of
females to the'. practice of medicirre.',
This we regard:lS unfortunate; for gureli

medical treatment from persons of their

that for those who desire to acquire med

should be afforded. We believe this . is
adniitted by all sensible p4sons outside
°film Oedical profeesion,.. and by many
of the very best rail in it, and it is a lit- .
tle,,too well settled to be overturned by
any parties' who may feel inclined to

ladrphysicians; it, is a necessity' that
their course of instruction be asthorough
and extended aspossible, for we'presumo
even those who hold the idea in abhor
rence, are ready to'admit that an educated
doctress is preferable to a female quack.
It is therefore manifestly wrong, as well
as grossly stupid, to subject ladies who
endeavor to fit themselves for 'the pint
11) n — lie annoyance.
They 'have . rights _that are not
to be djsregarded, and those who have
any fear that their competition in, the
professien wilibo unpleasant or injurious,

is the best possible means for making
that competition - vigorous - and - effective:
This rowdyism on the part of the Phila.:

to create_ sympathy and encouragement
for lady physicians than their own efforts
could do -in half a score of years. %% Mist

again be perpetrated:
-Gold. rules steadily between .126 - and
127. The bulls have been careful not to
venture on any more heavy operations
since the—time-the President - issued the
order to sell $6,ne0,000, and ruined
them,- just when- they were doing
their laVorst to ruin the - 'country:
But the Democracy say that the Presi_
dent, or Mrs. Grant,- or Mrs. Grant's
sister's hushand,_or somebody else, that
isn't a Demdcrat, is, a gold gambler.
We don't know how - it is, but we hope
the nest time the bulls try to nth up
gold to aid the repudiators, the President
will gamble just the same way lie did be
fore. We wont - - care much if his whole
family assitts him.

pearance of things down in Mississippi.
He says "it begins to look as if the

Governor Hannan, and k. T. Stewart,
