Estate cf Glen. Lyres of Butler,
The peculiar situation in which the valuable es
tate of Gen. Ayres, deceased, of Butler county, was
placed, we noticed some time since. His son it will
be remembered, was legitimatised by the last Legis-
Inure, but it was a doubtful point whether it was in
time for him to inherit his father's estate. The mat
ter however, has sines, been amicably adjusted, as
we learn from the Pittsburg American, which says:
"A final and conclusive setticment in regard to
the disposition of this estate, took place on Saturday
last, at Butler, all the heirs being present. Mr. John
Ayres, who was legitimatized by the act of As4em
bly, and would by that act have inherited the whole
estate; accepts of $llO,OOO. The remainder of the Jiro= Europe.

is concerned, the news by this arrival is important;
A pretty fair compromise we think.

Itemoval of the 'U. O. Marshal.
The U. 8. Gazette of Saturday last contains the
"One more removal has occurred, to mark the
downward progrese of the miserable administration
of the National Government. One more public
officer, who has faithfully discharged all of his du
ties, is made to feel Executive vengeance. And the
President, who entered upon the duties of his high
elation, with the voluntary assertion that no man
ehould be removed from office who did his duty in
that office, and abstained from open participation in
party politics, has violated that pledge voluntarily
given, and entitled himself anew to the censures of
a people who feel that much of their public liberties
depend upon the integrity of their public servants.
Yesterday morning, Isaac Otis, Esq., the faithful
and the effective Marshal of the Eastern District of
Pennsylvania, was informed that a commission for
his successor had been transmitted to the proper per
son, and that he must prepare to give up the papers
of his office, and resign his position.
The community, if not already stunned with the
repetition of such painful acts, may well ask "why
what evil bath he done 1"
Has Mr. Otis been negligent in his office l No
one will pretend to make such an assertion. Has
the Government suffered from his want of abilities
to tramact the duties of his station? No one sus
pects it. Has Mr. Otis been an active partizan
«galas, the President and his party ? It is not even
thought of. Why, then, is Mr. Otis dismissed from
the office of Marshal ? Let the corruption manifest
in the removals and appointments on all sides an
swer the question. Is this a part of the purchase
of Pennsylvania? Bah—Pennsylvania isnot to be
bargained for at that rate. And the Senate of the
United States, next winter, and the people of this
State, in the autumn of 1844, will show that such
niggling will not answer.
Since writing the above, we learn that General
Keim, of Berks county, late the representative in
Congress for that district, is to be the successor of
Mr. Otis. We say nothing of the man—but party
politics have wrought the movement. Then we
will ask whether Gen. Keim was not of that party
which, in 1840, so violently and, so far as concerns
Berks county, so effectqally opposed "Tippecanoe
and Tyler too." Is this office the reward of his la
bors in attempting to defeat the election of Mr. Ty
ler, or has there some change taken place ! Has Mr.
Tyler changed since 1840, or has General Keim
purchased office, by renouncing avowed opinions??
We leave that to the parties, as it is of little conse
quence to the argument who follows Mr. Otis. It
is the dismissal of the latter that must command
public attention, and public censure.
Mr. Otis, we repeat, is an honest man, and a
faithful, capable officer, courteous and punctual in
the discharge of his duties, and possessing the res
pect, confidence, and good wishes of his fellow citi
zens ; and all these things, while they pleaded for
his continuance in office, "cry aloud against the
deep damnation of his taking off."
"A Happy Meeting."
21tuiker ifill—a British Consul's
Previous to the late celebration at Bunker Hill,
the Committee of Arrangement bf the Monument
Association, addressed a circular letter to all the
Foreign Consuls in Boston, inviting them to join in
the festival. Whether by accident or design, the
British Consul, oddly enough, was made the recip
ient of one of these circular invitations. Most men
'under the circumstances," would not havt replied,
or else answered but surlily. But Mr. Grattan, the
English Consul, gets out of the rather awkward po
sition he was placed, in the following style. His
letter is decidedly a neat thing.
Boston, Juno 14, 1843.
Hasa Sia:—l beg to thank you for your obli
ging letter, and through you, the Committee of the
Bunker Hill Association, for their invitation to join
in the celebration on the 17th Mat.
Under the peculiar circumstances of the occasion,
I feel very sensibly the liberality of the invitation.
It would have given me great pleasure, on personal
accounts, to be with my colleagues of the Consular
corps, in the place assigned to us in the ceremonies.
But, on consideration, I think it better, for several
reasons, that I respectfully decline the honor ten
dered to me by the Committee, and I have no doubt
the gentlemen composing it, will understand my
motives, without requiring of me the somewhat dif
ficult, and always doubtful task of "defining my

IJury appointed to assess the Damages done by the
burning of Pennsylvania Hall in 1838, have fixed
I the amount at $22,658 27. Although this sum is
far below the actual damages sustained, yet it is
a pretty good sum for the city to pay for the "amuse

A Mother and her rive Children
• Svrunnly, July 1, 1843.
' A most shocking and Brutal murder ices commit
ted in Slipperyrock township, this county, on this
morning, by an Indian calling himself Samuel Ma
hawk. Wo have been enabled to gather the follow
ing particulars of the horrid tragedy. Mr. James
Wigton had left his house early in the morning for
the purpose of going to his father's to borrow from
him a horse to plough corn, leaving his wife and
five children at home. While he was absent, the
Indian came there, and appears from his confession,
murdered Mrs. Wigton and her five children by'
beating out their brains with stones. Mrs. Wigton
and the youngest child were not quite dead, when
first discovered. The Indian then proceeded to a
Mr. Kennedy's house, and made an attack on him
and his family—injuring a son of Mr. Kennedy very
severely, perhaps dangerously, by hitting him on the
head with a large stone. After being driven off by
Mr. Kennedy, he next went to Mr. Kicster's, where
he was captured, after a desperate resistance, in
which a man named Blair was seriously injured.
He was taken to Wigton'. and confessed the mur
der, and said he was sorry for it.
An Inquest was held on the dead bodies, and the
jury returned a verdict that the murdered persons
came to their deaths by the hands of Samuel Mo-
Mrs. Wigton was about thirty-five years of age
—the children, three girls and two boys were aged
about eleven, nine, five, three, and one, years.
The Indian is now in jail, and will be tried at the
September Sessions. We understand that he lives
in Cattaraugus county, N. Y. This unfortunate
wretch remained in this place fora day previous to
the commission of the above horrid deed, and com
plained of being sick.
