The New haven papers announce the death of
John Breed Dwight, a Tutor in Yale College, from
wounds inflicted upon him by one of the younger
members of the College, immediately after the com
mencement of the present term. It appears that
while Tutor Dwight was attempting to suppress
some nocturnal infraction of the rules of the institu
tion, he seised a young man named Lewis Fossil
of Philadelphia, and was in the act of drawing him
to the light in order to recognise him, when Fassit
drew a knife or dirk, of some kind, and gave him
three successive stabs near the groin, and almost
penetrating the femoral artery, which would have
been instantly fatal. A fever ensued which soon
terminated in death.
The New Haven Herald, in reference to the
above melancholy occurrence, says:
rnssit, the young man, who now stands guilty
of perpetrating the highest crime kaoWn. eci our
laws, hne left the city, and will. probably escape.—
We understand, however, that measures have been
instituted for his apprehension, and that a requisi
fion will be made to the Governor irf Pennsylvania
fu his surrender to the hands of justice:.
Fawn hne since proceeded to New Haven with
his father, and delivered himself up.

app.—. On Monday night last, (30th ult.) Mr.
Matthew Jack, of this vicinity came to his death in
a dreadful manner. lie and his dotneatics had re.
tired to bed about eight o'clock, and after they bad
been in bed about half an hour, he arose and went
down stairs, for the purpose, as he stated, of warm
ing his feet. They then fell asleep, and were arous
ed about eleven o'clock by the noise of Mr. Jack,
down stairs, calling for assistance. He had went to
the Kitchen, and in the fits, (a disease to which he
has for some time been subject,) fell in the fire, and
being unable to extricate himself, was dreadfully
burned. One side of his head, his neck, arms and
hands were burned to a crisp. Medical aid was im
mediately called in; but the extent of the injuries
received was such as to preclude all hopes of relief.
He lingered in great agony till about three o'clock
on Tuesday, when death terminated his suffering.
The same paper says On Wednesday even

aged about four years, was so severely burnt by his

was to be applied yearly to the support of aged and
infirm ministers of the Episcopal Church, in the
State of Ohio and if needful, ten per cent. of the
principal. The letter requested an answer to be ad.
dressed to L. P., New York. In the answer the
Bishop requested to know the name of the kind
benefactor. After some time a reply was given,
signing the name of Peter Lorillard, Esq. of New
York. Soon after, news reached the Bishop that he

The Carlisle Herald of Wednesday lost says:-
4 We learn that a destructive fire occured in Bloom
field, Perry county, on Friday night (27th ult.,) by
which the office of the Perry Freeman," the Whig
journal there, and several other surrounding build
ings were entirely destroyed.
We are pained to learn the loss experienced by
our esteemed and worthy friend Baker, of the
" Freeman." We have not ascertained the precise
amount of destruction done to his establishment,
but it is probable the whole product of years of in
dustry has suddenly been wrested from him by the
remorseless element. But let it be as it may, the
"Freeman" must be restored, and we call upon the
Whigs of Perry and Cumberland to see to it that
a liberal hand is stretched forth to the worthy suffer
er. This severe calamity must not ho permitted to
prostrate the Editor, or deprive the people of Perry
of a light-giving organ of Whig principles, such as
the "Freeman" has been under the able control of
Mr. Baker. We trust that prompt and energetic
means will be speedily adopted to re-establish its

A public sale of Bank and other stocks owned
by the Commonwealth, was held at the Philadelphia

prices varying from $173 to 1871—par value $4OO.
Philadelphia Bank, 74i to 781—par value $lOO.
Columbia Bank and Bridge Company, 424 to 45
par value $lOO. About 900 shares Harrisburg
Bridge Stock were sold at from sto si. A large
amount of Bridge, Canal, Railroad and Turnpike
Stocks were also sold, of course at prices much be
low their original value.
exam was tried week before last at
Cumberland, Md. for the murder of Abraham Frey,
in that county, in July fast, and found guilty of
murder in the first degree. The wife of the mur
dered man was also tried the same week, as being
accessary to the murder, and acquitted.
While Judge Buchanan was panning sentence of
death upon the unhappy criminal above, his feelings
were so overwhelming as almost to impede utter
ance. After passing the sentence, the judge arose,
and with him the other members of the Court, the
Bar, and the whole assembly, when he offered up to
the Throne of Grace a most fervent prayer in be
half of the doomed and unfortunate man.
Chaise has since made a full confession of his
guilt—and is humbled to the dust in prayer and in
confession of sin.
We learn from the Pittsburg Gazette that the
Wesleyan Methodist Conference, which assembled
in that city, a week or two since, had:the sulject of
Masonry under discussion before them, and finally
adopted, by a large majority, a resolution "which
stated substantially, that the Conference considered
all secret, oath-hound societies, contrary to the Go. '
pel of Jesus Christ, advised all the members of
churches under its care to abstain from all connec
tion with them and further declared that no adhering
member of such secret, oath-bound societiesoka
GI. Some of our political opponents would have
us believe that they look forward to the contest for
President in 1844, with perfect confidence of suc
cess. The Harrisburg Argus, however, one of the
most prominent mgans of the party in thin state,
speaks candidly of the matter, as follows:
" We have never felt an over-confidence in the
success of the democratic party at the next Presi
dential election, and it is the true policy of every
Democrat to proclaim danger if he feels it. Look
at our position now, compared with the election in
1940. Then we had in our favor the whole patron
age of the General Government—now we hove an
immense popular vote to overcome. Every indica
tion proves that the Whig organization of 1840, is
far from being broken up."
The Affection of a Dog.
A small dog has been noticed by the students of
St. Mary's, Halifax, N. S., constantly renting upon
a certain grave, in the burying•ground in the rearof
the College, and never leaving it, unless when
frightened by a larger dog entering the yard, when
lie immediately takes refuge under the church.--
The grave so attentively guarded, is that of a child,
probably the playmate of the faithful little animal.
It has become quite a favorite with the students

GER3IiIN RENOVATING PILLS
Are exactly adapted to the reign of John Tyler. If
the conduct of this remarkable man boa disappoint
ed and embarrassed the country, thereby subjecting
the inhabitants to intense mental excitement and
undue labor and exposure, which entail disease and
curtail the means of liquidating the expense of com
batting it, certainly an antidote for the circumstances
is gratifying. Such an antidote the Renovating
Pills undoubtedly are. Numbers of respectable
members of our own community have testified this
from their own experience. These testimonials
have swollen to so great an extent that it is impos
sible or inexpedient to introduce them into a paper
designed for general purposes. The public must,
therefore, be henceforth respectfully referred to the
;;cents below for evidence of the utility of the medi
cine. If such evidence, when examined, be unsat
isfactory, no purchase is expected.
All the diseases in which these Pills are appro
priate are not named in the notice from the fear of
the imputation of extravagance. They are of un
doubted and tried efficacy in Liver dimples and all
Bilious affections, being the only vegetable com
pound whose useful action is nearly eimilnr to that
of calomel. Also—Cholera Morbus, Dyspepsia,
Rheumatism, Breaking out on the akin, Fevers,
Ague, Colds, Cough., Inflammatory disease., and
particularly those affections originating from a bad
slate of the blood, which aro numerous.
The afflicted are recommended to try this inedi
dne, whose success is becoming unparalleled.
