Court of Common rleas
The Court of Common Pleas of this county ad•
journed late on Friday night last.
The case of Samuel S. Wharton 's children
igainstJohn Ssooope'r Administrators occupied the
time and attention of the Court from Friday morn
-1 ning of the first week till Thursday night of the
second. The suit is an Ejectment, in which the
plaintiffs, through their father, cluitn the possession
of the mill and farina late the property of Peter
Swoope, deceased, situated in Walker township.—
The plaintiffs claim under, by, and through the will
of their grand-father, the said Peter Swoope, he
having devised the property to them. After ma
king his will, the testator leased the same property
to his son John Swoope, (now deceased,) for the
term of seventeen years, at the expiration of which
lease the youngest of the plaintiffs will be twenty
, one years of age. The plaintiffs endeavored to in
the lease, alleging that it was procured by
1 unfair means. The jury retired on Thursday night,
and after being out a short time, returned with a
\verdict for the defendants, establishing the lease. A
motion was made previous to the final adjournment
of the Court, for a new trial. After some debate,
1 the motion was entertained—it will come up for
, argument at the next term.
On Friday morning the case of Robert Wilson
against Tine County of Huntingdon was tried.
It is a wire facies on a mechanics lien against the
new Court House. The jury found a special ver

facts found, is to be argued at the next term be

The C. S. Gazette says, we saw, on the 20th inst.,
sword of much excellence, a better did ne'er itself
upon a soldier's thigh sustain. It was ordered by
the Legislature of Maryland, for Captain Webster,
who, in 1814, commanded one of the small batteries
I below Baltimore, by which the enemy was so an
noyed, that he failed in his attempts upon the city.
Mr. Thomas Fletcher, of this city was applied to,
and Mr. Bennett, in Minor street, made the sword
for him. It to a beautiful form, with heavy gold and
mounting. The blade is etched on one side with
the following inscription: "Presented by the State
of Maryland to Capt. John A. Webster, for his gal
lant defence of the battery committed to his charge
during the memorable attack against the city of
Baltimore, September 12, 1814."
On one side of the hilt there is an inscription—
" Folio fora et fideli. Maryland dedit. John A.
On the other side is the coat of arms of Mary.
The workmanship of the sword reflects credit on,
the skill of Capt. Bennett; and the cost ($4000)
denotes a liberality in the Commonwealth that pre
sents it. But twenty-nine years is an awful time to
wait for a token of approval.
Confession of a murderer.
The murderer of the Parke and Caatner family in
_.....w wintry, ..v. J., Last spring, has been arrested
in Philadelphia, and has made a partial confession
of the fact. His name is Auguste Jacobi ; claims
to be a Prussian nobleman, resided for some time in
Allentown, and came to Philadelphia from Easton.
He says he had an accomplice. A Philadelphia
paper says: "the prisoner is a handsome looking
man, about forty years of age—is rather reserved in
his communications, and is thought by many to be
i somewhat deranged."
Since the confession, he alleges that when he made
it, he was deranged.
Murder on the Canal.
We learn from the Blairsville Record, that on
Friday night, the 10th inst., the crews of two canal
boats canto in angry contest with each other, at the
sixth . .lock above that place, on the trifling matter
of which should have the precedence in 'entering
the lock. In the affray, the captain of the „Clip
per," Mr. James lialfert y, was killed. He was
struck on the head with a club by a young man,
belonging to the boat "Sam Brady," by the name
of King Huet. The homicide was committed to
the jail at Greensburg, for trial.
The Government Dank.
A new issue of Treasury Notes has been made,
and we learn from the eastern cities that they are in
demand at Ij per cent premium. They are of the
denomination of $5O. The form of the note is
" The United States promise to pay, one year
after this date, to -, or order, Fifty Dollars,
with interest, at the rate of one mill per $lOO per
annuin." " Washington, -, 1843. Signed
by the treasurer, and countersigned by the register.
Over the top is engraved " Receivable in payment
of public dues." hi fact it is payable on demand
in specie, by the following endorsement on the back,
"'Phis note will be purchased ut par for the amount
of the principal end interest thereof, on presentation
at either of the depositories of the treasury in the
city of New York." This makes it to all intents
and purposes a Government Bank. The only
anomaly in it is, that the Secretary of the Treasury
has put it in operation without any authority of law.
It proves one thing, which the Whigs have always
maintained that a National Currency was indispen
elide, and we are rejoiced to see this point conceded
by a cabinet so highly spiced with Locofocoism as
the present one is. We only regret that it is not
regulated by law, instead of being managed by the
secretary, without responsibility. The practice is a
dangerous one in more respects than one.

Gen. Irvin for Governor.
EXTRACT OP ► LETTER TO TIIE EDITOR, DATED
Mifflin Co., November 8, 1843.
Dear Sir—As many of the counties arc now about
appointing their delegates to the Whig Convention
which is to nominate a candidate for Governor, a
free interchange of opinions on the subject of a
candidate may be the means of insuring more unan
imity in the nomination, and more effectually secure
the selection of a man who is the choice of the peo
ple. Without any disparagement to the claim and
merits of the many honest and true-hearted Whip
spoken of, I must say it has given me great pleasure
to see a number of the leading Whig papers in the
interior hoist the name of Gen. JAMES IRVIN as
the Whig candidate for Governor.
talents of a high order, a firm, unwavering Whig,
and emphatically an honest man ; and to him and
J. Ti. Ingersoll, perhaps more than to any other two
men, are we indebted for the compromise which
carried the late Tariff bill through Congress—and it
seems to me with Gen. Irvin for our candidate, we
must meet with success. The people are getting
tired of rogues, rascals and humbuggery, and the
cry now is for honest men. I always thought the
day would come when honest men would come in
fashion, and the signs of the times are decidedly
that way now. Give us Gen. Irvin for our candi
date for Governor, and I will promise you a strong
vote from the rural districts. N.
Correspondence of United States Gazette,
W AentscoTols, Nov. 20, 1843.
Dear Chandler:—The President has returned
from his visit to Virginia, without looking much
better for his trip. He has, I suppose, brought with
him the sketch, if not the whole, of his message, to
be submitted to his Cabinet; and the rumor which I
mentioned last week about Texas, is strengthened
by additional reports on the same subject. Now
inasmuch as this'wholo concern is intended as a
trap, I regret to see three or four Whig papers rub
bing their nose against the edge, before it is fairly
set. The object of the whole matter is to get up
some question in Congress, that will divide the
Whigs of the South from the Whigs of the North,
and create a real schism. You will say it may
also divide the Locofocos." There is not so much
danger of that; they are much more likely to split
on men than nwasures. But if it were to break
theM up, it would only work so much the better for
Mr. Tyler, whose hopes arc founded in some owl
dent to one party or another, by which he linty be
thrown in to fill a vacancy.
Mr. Tyler, I have reason to believe, is allowing
certain persons to speak against his Secretary of
War, and to create abroad a belief that lie luta rot
confidence in his attachment or abilities. This is a
small game to have played, but we live in the day
of small things. Do you know that Mr. Spenceris
aiming for a neat on the Bench of the Supreme
Court, and that he would soon fill Judge Thomp
son's place, if lie had any confidence in the confirm
ing disposition of the Senate?

are looking about for messes and amusement's.—
They will easily enough make the former, and a

How Massachusetts Was Betrayed,
The Globe the other day remarked that these
days of Tylerism had given to "apostacy
jubilee." The example given by John Tyler has
been followed up in Indiana and in Massachusetts.
The following from the Boston Atlas tells the story
of an act which is second in infamy only to that of
the Acting President.
ANOTHER ASTOUNDING DISCLOSURE.
The attention of the people of Massachusetts is
moat earnestly called to.the facts which are disclosed
by the letters now laid before them.
It is well known that parties were so nearly bal
anted in the loot Legislature, that the filling of the
vacancies in the Senate, and through that the ele,7-
tion of Governor, depended upon a single vote—
and that the two individuals upon whom the eyes
of the Radical leaders were turned, were Mr. Col
lins of Eastham, and Mr. Bell of Montgomery.
Of Mr. Collins, his vote, and the payment there
for, the public aro already well informed. But all
that has as yet come to light in that case, is the fact that
he voted for Gov. Morton and his allies, and subse
quently received from them a Justice's commission.
We know nothing as yet of the previous negotia
tions. But in the case of Mr. Bell, we not only
have another case of the grossest bribery and cor
ruption, but are possessed of the means of showing
the manner in which it was accomplished.
Mr. Bell was elected as the Representative of the
town of Mnittiromerv. hv Whin vntna a nd h e came
to Boston, openly avowing his intention of voting
with the Whigs in the Legislature. He uniformly
attended their caucuses, and voted for the Whig
candidate for Speaker. Ho was constantly beset,
however, by the Radical leatlers,and by turns threat
ened and coaxed—and yet up to the morning when
the vacancies in the Senate were to be filled, there
seemed to be no doubt that he would continue to
vote with the Whigs, as Ito had done. But all on
a sudden he changed his course—voted for the Ra
dical Senators—and thereby their party came into
_ . _
That secret and malign influence had been sue.
ceesfully used upon hint could not be doubted, but
the means and the manner had been carefully cov
ered up. Mr. Bell continued through the session
uniformly voting with the party, whom he had thus
elevated to power, mid still the mystery was unex
plained. But now the hour has come for a disclo
sure of the secrets to the whole Commonwealth.—
The conspirators who have thus fur covered up their
monstrous villainy, may fancy that their secret is
safe, but they will find it otherwise. For now, at
the very moment when they are laboring to induce
the people to keep Gov. Morton and themselves in
their offices, the startling evidence is to be published
which will confound their schemes—and if there be
any moral sense left in Massachusetts, must drive
them from public employment disgraced and des
pised by every honest man.
The facts, which we have it in our power to state
are as follows:
It was on the morning that the balloting took
place, that the conspirators met in the lobby of the
clerk of the House of Representatives. Mr. Bell
had come to the House intending to vote for the
Whig candidates for the Senate, and was sitting
quietly in his sent, when a man, not a member of
the House, but well known as a doer of the dirty
work of the party, was seen to enter the House, and
go directly to Bell and take hold of his collar.—
After a moment's whispering they left the halt to
gether, and went into the lobby, the door of which
was instantly closed. Tho persons who were in
that lobby are known. They were the leaders and
drillmen of the Locofoco party in and out of the
House. What took place there is known. The
result was soon seen. Mr. Bell came back to his
seat—and just as the voting was commencing, the
seat next hint was left by its proper occupant, and
; taken possession of by one of the lobby conspire-
tore, who followed Mr. Bell round through all the
balloting—watched his vote—took from him pri
vately the Whig ballots that he had in his hands,
and saw that his part of the lobby contract was ful
filled. And thus it was that the Morton adminix
tmtion was put into power. Bell's vote did it—
and thus was Bell's vote obtained.
What was the inducement which led Mr. Bell to
change his vote I What was offered hint in the
lobby I Let tho following facts answer.
During the session of the Legislature, Mr. Bill
addressed a letter to Gov. Morton claiming twin , -
thing in the way of reward for his services. No

Tb Thu. B. F. Hanel
Dear Sir—l wrote a few lines to you some two
months ago, in which I described my situation to I
you, acid I have received no answer. I sometimes
think that my letter lutist, have been miscarried.—
But sir,.you know all the cireumstancesof my elec
tion last November to the Legislature. You know

you promised me when I had an interview with you
at your house, which was, if I found myself dis.
~ - -- -
tressed in any manner on my return, in consequence !
of my course in the Legislature, to drop a line to
you and I should be assisted. I believe, sir, that
was the promise nearly verbatim et literati'',
Now, sir, 1 never was the possessor of any great
amount of property, and ant considerably in debt,
and great advantage has been taken of me by those
that I owed that were attended at my course lust
winter. Sir, you assured me, and I supposed you
spoke by authority, that the Democratic party felt
igrateful to mo and that I should be remembered,
but I see all around me offices and favors dispensed
1 by that very government which !assisted to organize, ,
and not the least notice taken of me now in my
adversity in consequence of assisting to organize it.
Now, sir, this is my last appeal to you. After I
made that agreement in your presence, with certain
members of the Democratic party, just before we
balloted to fill the vacancies in the Senate, I little'
thought tharthey would wilfully forget to fulfil their
part of the engagement. But so it seems to be. I
Ihave borne my calamities in silence. But I shall
not much longer. I consider that I hove fulfilled
my part of the agreement, and if others do net
i theirs, I shall see what effect public opinion will
i have upon them. If I get no response from this, I
• I shall consider that it amounts to a refusal.
You will please excuse are for using strong lan
I gunge, for I think the necessities of my case justify

P. S. I have not seen or heard any thing of that
commission of Justice of the Peace that I was, to

the 9rd of July, and we ask attention to the reply

Respectfully, your ob't servant,
B. F. HALLETT,
CHARLES C. BELL, E.
Now mark the sequel of this conspiracy. Mr.
Bell receives nothing but the paltry commission of
Justice of the Peace in payment for his vote. He
is discontented, and through the whole summer
complains to the conspirators that he is not paid
according to the contract---and finally, on Aug. 14th,
Governor Morton received a letter from him, renew
ing his claim and warning him that if he is neglec,
ted he shall make a loud appeal to the people.
Thus we see that a conspiracy begun in corrup
tion and carried oil by attempted bribery, is ended
in the most shameful forgery ! This plan, however,
I did not succeed. Mr. Bell had seen enough of the
I treachery and fraud of Isis pretended friends and
would not again trust himself in their hands.
To the people of Massachusetts these facts are
now submitted. In solemnity let them be consid
ered--and let their judgement full where guilt is so
clearly proved. We need not ask them what these
facts and letters show. Continent is not only un
necessary, but we dare not trust ourselves to speak
as we feel. We only say that if the people are
' I not now convinced that a more corrupt and profli
gate set of men were never inflicted upon any State
then those who now control Massachusetts, they
must have lost all moral sense.
The Annexation of Texas.
There seems uo reason to doubt, front the indi
cations in the Madisonian and other quarters, says
the N.l. Tribune, that John Ty ler will recommend I
to the next Congress, substantially, the Annexation
of Texas to the United Stat .s! The reports of
1 dissension and an apprehended explosion in his
Cabinet on this and other subjects may or may not
be well founded ; but that the Message will talk
largely of the designs of Great Britain on Texas,
the untiring machinations of the A boliitonsts, and the
necessity of counteracting them by some prompt
and decisive action with regard to Texas, appears
certain. . . .
If this - project of Annexation be formidably back
ed and vigorously pushed, it will for a time over- ,
ride all party considerations. Tho Free States
t without regard to party, can never agree to the ad
dition of a vast new territory to our dominion in
I which the poisonous seeds of Slavery have already
been thickly sown. The serious proposal of it will
arouse a resistance to which the Missouri excitement
was a trifle. But it cannot be strongly pressed.—
Mr. Van Buren and his friends will keep out of it,
while the leading Whig journals, even of the South,
have already condemned it. Mr. Calhoun'. friends
may go in with Mr. Tyler, but they will not make
I a groat force all told. We believe the project of
Annexation cannot secure over fifty votes in the
House and twelve in the Senate. Yet we shall
watch the course of the demonstration with a lively
