J. PORTER BRAAVLET,
of Crawford County. .
The most satisfactory resolution the Legisla
ture has yet passed," is that which determines
that a final adjournment will take place on Tues
day next, 10th inst.
- The Appropriation Bill has passed the House,
and is likely to pass the Senate without any
modification, so fur as the new Portage is con
cerned. The appropriation toward the comple
tion of the road, amounts to four hundred and
eixty-three thousand 'dollars, "or in other words,
" four time3 the amount the old Portage costs the
State, annually. The propriety of continuing
the work on the now road, or abandoning it en
tirely, and adopting the old road from tbe foot
cf Planeo. 5, to the foot of Tlane No. S, with
the new road from those two points to Ilclli
daysburg and Johnstown, thereby leaving four
planes upon the mountain route, as recommen
ded some years ago by T. J. Power, Engineer,
has been the great 4,hobbj" of the present Leg
islature. Opposed to the present new Portage
we had firstly, the Central Pvailroad, for the rea
son that the new State road when completed
would conflict with the interests of thnfeorfora:
tion,'diminish the carrying trade on that road,
and increase the trade and tolls on the new
State road. Secondly, several contractors who
were not allotted contracts on the new Portage,
who vainly supposed that as they had one of:
their body in the lower House, that he
could, hj his giant (!) efforts and eloquent (!)
remarks, defeat an apr ropriation to the new
road, and give the Canal Board "A Roland for
their Oliver" Thirdly, the engineer who was
- disappointed when Mr. Faries was selected to
take charge of the road, he being tin applicant
for the same situation, and who still adheres to
his original opinion that several planes are ne
cessary on the road. Happily however, the
Legislature of the State withstood the attacks
madeupon the new road by the three divisions
above named, and have appropriated money fori
its completion. This is as it should be, and will
command the approbation of the great majority
of the State. The member of the Legislature
who, if report says true, was determined "to
make it pay this winter at Ilarrisburg," lias
been signally foiled in his effort to defeat the
appropriation his wholesale charges against
the conduct of the Canal Board have not been
sustained,' and he has created for himself, by
"his impolitic and unjust course, a legislative rep
utation that no man need covet of him.
On several occasions, he has been lavish of
his abuse upon the head3 of the laborers and
residents on the old Portage, and could scarcely
find sufficient base and scandalous epithets to
apply to them. "People who live in glass hou
ses, should never throw stones," and were all
the facts made known in reference to the load
ing of large lets of ties upon the state trucks at
Johnstown, and unloading them above Plane No.
2, aud as to who did not pay any freight for con
veyance of said ties from the former to the lat
ter place, charges might be sustained against
those who so often charge others of that which
they themselves arc blameable with. The odium
of defeat in all his niins and objects rests upon,
him, and he is thrice welcome to it, while there
is not a single voice rr.ised for his l-elief. Of
questionable democracy, his course has not cre
ated much surprise, nor is hi3 intimate connec
tion with the central company sufficient justifi
cation of the errors and faults of his legislative
career. May his constituents be desirous of
awarding to him proper praise for his pure and
lion. James Buchanan has been appointed by
the President, and confirmed by the Senate, as
Minister to England. This is in our opinion,
the best selection that could te made foi that sta
tion. Mr. B. will discharge his duties to the
satisfaction of the w hole country, and e.' ill fur
ther raise bimijelf in the estimation of the Na
. Anothar Chance.
. The Boston Journal records a very creditable
acton the part of President Tierce. The editor
states that a short time since, the President, at
tho recommendation of two leading Senators, ap
pointed, an individual to office, who immediately
became so exhilarated, that he forgot himself
for the time, and indulged in a fit cf intemper
ance. This fact coming to the knowledge of the
parties who had recommended him, they asked
for his removal from office, but this request the
President refused to accede to, remarking to
them as follows
'But if I were to remove him now, the conse
quence would be inevitable ruin to him. The
Bhanie and disappointment attending his dismis
sal from office under these circumstances would
lead him to find solace in the intoxicating bowl,
and he would become a confirmed inebriate
whereas if this conversation is repeated to him,
he may, and probably will reform, aud be. omo
a sober and exemplary citizen. I shall not re
move Lirn from office for this offence but this,
as ithnstbeen the first, so it will be the last time
I can forgive him." -

an umbrella and knife were found in the store of
Mr. Rink, after it had bee n r.scertained tnat he
had been stabbed to death.- Wm. Byrne, the of
ficer who took such an active part in bringing
Spring to justice, by obtaining the disclosures
from his sen, has all along had his mind im
pressed with the idea that Spring had also mur
With this impression he waited upon Mr. Ra
gp.n, to obtain such clue to Spring's wherea
bouts, on the,day.jhat,JUnk.waaciuurdcrcd, as
Ilagan might be possessed of. The latter, at
that interview, inclined to the belief that Spring
was at work in his (Ragau's) cellar at the time
Rink was killed.
Not content with this, Mr. Byrne, waited up
on the brother of Rink, and urged him to call
upon Mr. Rngan with the umbrella found in the
store after the murder. He did so yesterday,
and upon an examination of the umbrella, both
Mr. and Mrs. Rngan recognised it to be theirs.
It had upon it unmistakable marks by which
it could be recognised. Thre small patches had
been put upon it by Mrs. Ragau, and a piece of
wire had also, a short time before,- been attach
ed to it by Mr. Ragan, to render it strong and
secure. These marks were still upon it.
Mr. Rngan now distinctly recollects that on
the day that Rink was nrurdercd, Spring was
somewhat drunk, and in the afternoon he ob
tained from him a small amount of change, and
borrowed the umbrella, which was found in
When Spring started out of Mr. Ragan's store,
the latter .felt curious to know which way he
was going." He walked out ..after him, and saw
him walk up Market street to Eleventh, and turn
.down Eleventh towards Chestnut. lie then went
into his store again.
Of this latter fact he is now just as certain as
that the umbrella, supposed to have been left in
the store, by the murderer, when he 2cd.. is the
one he lent to Spring on the afternoon Rink was ;
e understand that both Mr. and Mrs.
Raan are willincr to swear that the umbrella
belongs to them.
There can now be little doubt that the murder
spoken of by Spring to his fconupon the com
mission of which he expected to get a large sum
of mone-, but obtained none, was that of Rink.
The public mind has been gradually settling
down to the conviction for some time past, and
the facts seem now about to be developed.
It is the opinion of Mr. Ragan, that, when
Spring left his store in Market sreet, with the
small sum, of money he gave him, he mut have
gone somewhere aud purchased the knife with
which the murder was committed, and which
was left behind, as he has no recollection of
Spring ever having owned such a knife.
We urged upon the attention of the authori
ties, some time since, the probability that
Spring was guilty of the murder of Mr. Rink.
The idea was scouted at that time, but circum
stances have confirmed the correctness of our

Jacob Shaw, at the house of Mrs. Criswell, cor
ner of Grant street and Virgin alley. George
W. Robinson, Frederick Boese, Mr. Criswell and
others were examined, from whose testimony we
learn that cn Saturday night, the deceased went,
in a state of intoxication, to a house of ill-fame,
kept by Mary Delany, alias Mary Jones, on
Prospect street. He had just purchased a pair
of stockings, and Mary Delany attempted to take
them from him. He resisted, and a scuffle en
sued, which was terminated by the female draw
ing a dirk-knife, and inflicting a severe wound
in the abdomen of Shaw. A physician was cul
led in, who had the deceased removed to the
house of Mrs. Criswell, that lady having humane
ly consented to allow him to -be taken there.
Shaw lingered in great pain until yesterday
morning at a quarter past six o'clock, when he
died. Some time before his death, Mayor Rad
dle took his deposition in which he described the
appearance of Mary Delaney, and .when she, to
gether with the other inmates of the house, was
brought to his bedside, he immediately identi
fied her as the-person who had inflicted the
wound. A pol mortem examination of the body
was made, by Dr. Black, who testified as fol
lows; Dr. A. II'. lilaclc, sworn In connection with
Dr. Iiallcck, 1 made upasf. merlon examination
of the body of deceased; found a wound above
the bench hone; it went through the muscles of
the lower part of the abdomen, through the in
testines ; its course was upwards, thiuugh the
mesentery, iuto one of the small, intestines;
found a quantity of fcecal matter which had pas
sed through the opening of the main intestine,
and was scattered over the bowels; also found
the bowels bloody, and of an. inflamed appear
ance; there was evidently strangulation of that
portion of the intestines, sufficient to cause the
death of the man ; the wound extended about an
inch through the muselc. aud from three to five
inches up; the effect of the fcecal matter upon
the bowels was fatal; nothing could have saved
Uis life after the wound had been giveu.
After deliberating, the jury rendered the fol
lowing vrnDiCT: .
That the deceased, Jacob Shaw, came to his
deatli from a wound inflicted by a dirk-knife in
the hands of Mary Delany, alias M iry Jones, on
the night of the ninth of'April, 18-53. -
Shaw was a man of nbout forty-two years of
age. He formerly resided in Ilarrisburg, and
more recently iii Philadelphia, from which lat
ter place he came to this city about two weeks
ago. He was a blacksmith by trade, . and had

the French Government have got into a dis-'cru-auce
with twelve hundred women at .Marseilles.

riot. An innovation had been made in the mode
of cutting oil" the j gged ends of cigars after
they had been rolled into shape. Knives were
ordered to Id' substituted for scissors tt jve form
this operation.' The row ihat succeeded passes
