Niagara The new road from Harrisburg to Sunbury will
be useful to that rich mineral region, and will also be COD-

Lebanon Valley roads. To the Sunbury and Erie the new
line is important. It had previously au avenue to Phila•

is short and direct road to the State capital at Harrisburg,
col to the port of Baltimore This must give a fresh im ,
peter to the work on the

approaching, they took to the wrinkle, leering their cloth ,
iag, horst and buggy behind. The pie nick party coming
up and seeing the horse, buggy and —l eleth-ing, suppoOled
that soaetbiag dreadful had happened, and were about
taking the hone away. One of the young men had a •lew
of the proceedings, from his retreat bellied a large tree,
and the idea of being left in the woods without I garment
to his back, nerved him to a desperate moire, and he
bawled loudly to the party to let that errangement alone,
060 of the gentlemen replied, and kept up a cAnersittlim
with the unseen spirts, in which 0.• learned the truth of
the whole affair, sod the picnic Tre proceeded en their
way full of mirth at the incident.
—The opposition papers are filled with presidential
speculations. The New York Express thinks this is to be
ascribed to the "proclivities of the Americas mind always
to be engaged in the agitation of some topics of public in
terest connected with political men and subjects.! Such
is not our opinion. We impute this premature discussion
of the question, to The mutual jealousies of tie friends of
the many aspirants on that side, each being apprehensive
that the others will get the advantage of them in the pre
liminary canvass. The Boston Traveller has an elaborate
article, in which the expediency of nominating Fremont
again is foteibly argued. The N. Y. Express dissents
trete the conclusion to which the Traveller lOires, and in
sists that Col. Fremont is one of the weakest men that the
opposition could bring out; and adds—"there are forty:
men at least In the Republican ranks who could, in 1860,
secure more votes. Judge McLean in ISA would have
beaten him many thousands." The Exprrae is undoubted
—Gen, Lane, of Kansas, has been acquitted by the ex
&mining magistrates of the charge of murder in killing
Col. Jenkins, and discharged. The detision is generally
disapproved by the people of Kansas. There is nothing
in the charge however, to prevent the grand jury from in
dieting Lane for murder if so disposed. The magistrates
decided that, it was a case of justifiable homicide. This
result was not unanticipated, for it would not hare been
very creditable to the ability and influence of his counsel
If they weld not bring means enough to bear to procure
an acquittaL Although legally acquitted, we doubt much
whether the honorable portion of the Free State party In
Kansas will regard him innocent of the ertme. Delibera
tely and in cold blood, he took the life of a whilom friend,
a deed which will strip him of an influence he has emir•
cased in that Territory detrimental to its bat interest, and

—We see it stated that the übiquitous Oen. William
Walker bas again turned up in New Orleans, where be as.
sorted that Mr. Buchanan. through his Secretary of War,
tent an ambassador to him (Oen. Walker) guying that "if
be would forego the Nicaragua enterprise and engage in

war between Spain and Mexico inevitable, he (Walker)
would moire the support' of the .Administration." Of
course, each an assertion is too ridicalowi to be entertain

—The Kauai Daly Ledger expresses deep regrets that

from the hat that they have beset inurwprosperous, happy

the fact that he went there to do his duty as Governor, in•

Mr. W. is altogether too compotes and bold to be • stack

says Talyrand, woe made to conceal one's thoughts; bat
WALEIN could never Understand this. What be thinks
he must say, and what he says be must adhere to, let the
coosequesees be what they may. In consequence of this
trait of his character he has many warm friends and IS
many bitter enemies. Notwithstanding them defects, we
think he would make • better representative for the local
interests of our district than any of his 3ompetitors. Re

He has had some experience it Is true as a legislator, sad

ACQUISITION OP CUBA.—The Detroit Free Press is
an enthusiast*, advocate of the speedy acquisition of
Cuba. There le seareely a week passes that it does cot

let as confess, we mart heartily wymputtise with it. Is
the last number it says Mr. Jarring**, the father of the
peat Desurade party, wse'hpr its &unladen. As early
aa 1809, la a letter to Kr. Manton, he said that with it
we should have each as empire for !Abort, u she never
surveyed since the creation; and he was "persuaded that
so constitution was e'er before so well calculated as ours
far euessive empire sad self-goverameat." In 1823, in
a letter to lie. Mouton, he remarked that he candidly con
fessed that he had ever looked on Cabs as the most interest
lug addition which could ever be made to our system of
BMus. "'The control which,* he said, "with Florida
point, this bland would give as in the Gulf of Mexico,
sad the ountries sad isthmus bordering on it, would all

the same letter that-he saaasseed the &patriots which Pre
al maxim should be, sever to entaagle ourselves in the
broils of Europe; oar aeeoad, never to suffer Enrol* to
intermeddle with eis-Atinatie slain." Bo we see whither
Mr. Jarrnason's slur fore-sight pointed in regard to
Cuba. Ea had, while Fruitiest, parchased Louisiana; he
bad, is 1821, *Messed the &egoista*. of Florida; we
only needed Cuba, and the country that would naturally

never surveyed since the creatioa." What he saw as a
want, the usury now feels as •necessity. The democratic
party has bees use to the twain" of Mr. Jarraason

to look on Cabe as "the most lateresUng addition that

CHLOttortinNt AND DILLUsIONS
era no doubt remember the case of a dentist in
Philadelphia, who was accused and convicted
of rape upon a lady under the influence of
chloroform, the lady herself being the only wit•
ness against him. There were many persons
who doubted the reliability of the testimony of a
person as to facts ()centring during the influence
of the chloroform, and it was a subject of much
discussiau A very singular ease has lately oc
curred in this city, showing bow little such tes
timony is to be relied upon. It seems that sev.
oral of our moat eminent physicians and surgeons
including Dr. Donne, Dr. S Richardson, Dr.
Coehraoe, Dr. T. L Caldwell, Dr Colescott,
Dr. Hardin, Dr. Bayless, and others, met to wit
ness the removal-by Dr Goldsmith, the distin
yaished Professor of Surgery of the Kentucky
School of Medicine, of a huge cancerous breast
from the person of a lady residing in the lower
part of the city. While an assistant was admin
istering the chloroform, and before the patient
was fully under its influence, she was observed
to draw the covering over her breast, which was
bared fot the operation Soon after this she
sprang up and declared in the most indignant
manner that she "would rather die than be
abused in that way." Anil it was only by the
utmost efforts on the part of Dr Goldsmith and
the lady's husband that she could be induced to
continue the use-of the chloroform After the
operation was finished and the effeete of the an
oethetic passed off, she was asked if she remem
bered anything of what had taken place She
answered (her eyes, we are told, flashing with
fury) that she did not feel the cutting, bat she
knew well enough the indecent remarks made
and the insulting liberties taken with her in her
