"We find in the Harrisburg Union, of June
15th, a lengthy correspondence between 0Ov.
Lowe, .of Maryland, and Gov. Bigler, of Penn
sylvania, in the matter of the surrender of M'-,
Creary and Merritt, the two men employed to
secure Elizabeth and Rachel Parker, colored
girls, supposed to be fugitive slaves of L. A.
Shcofeild, of Balticiqre. As the correspondence
is too lengthy for onr columns, we avail our
ele9 of the following condensation of it from
the Baltimore Sun; cf Thursday.
' The letter of Gov. Lowe in reply to the de
mand on the part of Pennsylvania, is dated May
2, 1853, and declines compliance with the re
quisition. He argues that the men went to
Pennsylvania not aa "kidnhappera," the of
fence with which they are charged but to cap
ture tha parties ---as fugitive slaves, with a pow
er of attorney, and acting in good faith. It is
therefore contended that they acted without mo
ral guilt. If guilty at all, it is purely technical.
Gov. Lowe further adverts to the feeling which
pervades the community amongst whom the par
ties would be tried, which would render the re
sult of the tiial exceedingly uncertain.. He also
alleges that he is justified in using this discre
tion, and urges that Governors and courts have
repeatedly gone behind requisitions, and exam
ined and decided upon the merits of cases them
selres. It is further stated that an agreement was
understood between the late Attorney General
of Pennsylvania, as one of the counsel on part
of that State, in the Rachel Parker case, and
the counsel for the claimant, that no criminal
proceedings should be had against McCreary
and Merritt if the claim was abandoned. In
pursuance of this agreement, verdict'in favor of
the petitioner was rendered by the jury. It is
assumed, therefore, that Pennsylvania has ad
mitted the moral innocence of M'Creary and
Merritt, and Gov. Lowe, accepting this conclu
sion, declines to surrender the parties.
Gov. Bigler replies at considerable length, un
der date of the 26th nit. He does not regard
the reasons assigned for the refusal of Governor
Lowe as sufficient. He defends the people of
Pennsylvania, and especially the citizens of
Chester county, against the intimation that any
prejudices or excited feeling would induce them
to try the parties except according to the rules
aad principles of law. The plea innocence Gov.
Bigler declines to discuss, and denies its legiti
macy. He maintains that it was the duty of
McCreary -to have taken the girls before the U.
S. Commissioner, as the law requires. That, as
he did not do so, he should bear the consequen
ces. But the whole inquiry is deemed irrele
vant, and tne precedents incidentally adverted
to by Gov. Lowe for going behind the requisi
tion denied altogether. The constitution and
laws of the 'United States are quoted, in proof
the mandatory character of a requisition.
With respect to the offence charged, "kidnap
ping," Oov. Bigler remarks that is a crima
equally in Maryland and Pennsylvania, and is
j-.rupcrjy mciuueu ia me term . "otner crimes
ot the constitution. - The argument of Oov
Lowe are then, applied to another case to illus
trate the logical consequences of them. The
tightest discretionary power in the executive
is thereupon utterly denied. Cases are cited in
support of the views cresented. It ia
that if the Executive of one Stats can into the
guilt or innocence of parties demanded uDon re
cuieition by the requisition of another, he can
nlso administer punishment ; and asked, what
I4mt eouia -oe assigned to the exercise of the
power. Further the accused might be twice
inea ana jeoparaizea ior sne same offence. Ca
ece are cited-again in behalf of the general ar
w ith respect to the agreement between the
counsel, Uov. Bigler remarks that Judge Camp
bell was not actine in tho Parker case as Attor
cey General of the State of Pennsvlvania. hut
the special appointee of the Executive in the
trial of the Parker girls . His powers were the
Bam &3 tuose ot his associate. Judge Bell, and
no more. And, as Attorney General, he could
exercise no greater than an advisary power over
the proceeding. The power to stay prosecu
tion against the accused is vested solely in the
court and District Attorney of Chester county
They have sept the case to the grand jury, and
a bill of indictment was bund. Upon this bill
Gov. Big'cr issues bis requisition, and can see
no relief for the parties save in a trial bya jury
ef the State of -Pennsylvania,' where any facts
and circumstances connected with the trial for
the freedom of Rachel Parker 'may plead in de
fence of McCreary and Merritt.
Mutual regret is expressed that any differ
ence of opinion should have arisen in-tha 'catfe.

turb the amicable relations whioh-have-so long!

Editors in a Row.
We learn from the Hannibal Journal that a
personal collision recently occurred between the
Editors of the Whig and Herald, published at
Quiucy, III. The circumstances are thus detail
ed by the Journal :
Brooks (editor of the Herald) was passing
in front of the Quincy House, when Morton, who
was nitting in a chair, got up and struck him in
unocsing on nia nai. urooxs men arew
v.v.w, nuu i. v iuvi wii) buo uau aui&uiu
the shoulder blade, and glancing off without do
ing any inj try. The latter, who was unarmed.
then drew a chair at bis antagonist, when Brooks
attempted to fire the second time, but his pistol
mis.se a lire. -
A large crowd gathered around, and determi
nation was expressed to hang Brooks if he did
not leave in twenty -four hours. The excitement
however, subsided. The cause of the "affray
oommenced with a publication by the editor of
tne vnig, in reference to brooks management of
tne rost t Jmce. The latter retaliated by pub-
usning Morton as a "liar, "cwiadrei," and
"puppy."
Retaliatory. In company, an English lady
half jocularly, of course, atttributed a very po
lite redinesss for wine to the daughters of Erin.
I believe that in Ireland," she observed, "it is
quite customary for a lady, if she only catches
the eye of a gentleman earnestly directed to her
at the dinner table, to say, "Port if you please."
j Promptitude is the order of the day. "Yes,"
replied an Irish lady, not over pleased, with the
'insinuation, and determined to rrnnv r.K i.

"Why, when an English lady finds a gentleman's

We hear that the hands employed on the Por

ments, and have issued circular asking the
- it
sympathy of their felloir citizens. If we recol.
lect right, the Canal Board in lUbZ pafsea a re-
solution, requiring 8operinten!enta and Super-
to vtty CMh for all materials, and make
monthly paymentsto laborers, this we know has
not been the custom TO the Porttge ; but that it
rizht and lost. AO one can deny. The men

On the other baud
Gen. fios. alleges that he has paid out eighty-
fire thousand dollars since the 19th of April when
the appropriation Bill passed. From what we !

want of a sufficient appropriation, owing to a

Change of Colour in the Hair.
Dr. Wardrop, an English author, in r. treatiss
on 4Diseases of the Heart," relates some cases
of the sadden changing of the hair from black
to white. A lady who was deeply grieved on
receiving the intelligence of a gieat change iu
her worldly condition, and who had a very re
markable quantity of dark hair, fouud, on the
following morning, the whole of her hair had
become of a silver white. Some striking instan
ces of this kind are narrated by historians. "1
was struck," says Madame Cam pan, "with thw
astonishing change misfortune had wrought up
on Marie Antoinette's features ; her whole head
of hair had turned almost white during bertrau
sit from Varennes to Paris." The Duchess ol
Luxembourg was caught making her escape da
ring the terrors of the French Bevoiution, aud
put in prison; the next morning it was observ
ed that her hair had become white. A SpaaijK
officer, distinguished tor his bravery, was in ta?
Duke of Alva's camp, and an experiment shs
made by one of the authorities to teat his csur
age. -At midnight, tho Provost Marshal, accom
panied by hie guard and a confessor, awoke Lim
from bis sleep, informing him that, by the or
der of the Viceroy, he was to be immediately
executed, and had only a quarter of an hur left.
to make his peace with Heaven. After he h ii
confessed, . he said that he was prepared t ?r
death, but declared his innocence. The Pr-v?at '
Marshal at this moment broke into a fit .f u. -.' j
ter, and told hnu that they inert-iy wautej. to ry j
his courage. Placing his hand upon Lis .uo-.rt.

American Principles Vindicated.
We learn with great pleasnre from tht Wash
ington corespondent of the Herald, that Secre
tary M ircy has takes in hand the refonnatin
of divers abuses which have so Jong existed ia
our diplomatic and consular service. Ameri
cans travelling abroad have often been shocked
to witness the employment of foreigners in
many of our European legations, and ia the
United States consular offices almost every when..
Oov. Marcy has corrected this abuse by dirvfV
ing that hereafter none but American art io tw
entrusted with diplomatic and consular eeortU '
and archives. Hereafter, it is said, our iforeifa
ministers are to transaot their own basins!, aad
not transfer to their secretaries the onus and re
sponsibilities of official signatures. For tht fs
ture all oar foreign legations are ordered to be
opened every day, except Sunday, from 9 A. M
to 3 P. M , for the accommodation of American
citizens. Hereafter American passports are to
be visited gratis by the minister, in all place
where one resides. This will be found an ia
portant reform, in Home and Naples, particular
ly, and in some other cities. The new Secreta
ry has abolished consular and diplomatic uni
form, in all cases where they can be dispeaxd
with. PAila. Sim.

when she can step in with armies. Sh now ,

Shah she claims the city of Asterabid in Asia, ,
