"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. aad a hope that nothing may transpire to dis- turb the amicable relations whioh-have-so long! wxmed btan the people of the two.

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.

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.

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.
