    more prosperous than all others. He says further—
" I have been freduently asked by well-dressed
men, with a knapsack on their back, for money on
the road, and of one of thorn I got a deal of infor
mation. There is also a custom among the me
chanics, when they go from one town to another,
and it in &recognized privilege of theirs, from time
immemorial to ask assistance from passers by as
they travel along, and at the towns they pass
through ; and at every town there is a herherge,' as
they call it, whore thb master of the inn, has agreed
with the guild of that trade to lodge them at a very
low rate: so that, when they arrive, they immedi
ately ask for the tailor's or shoemaker's, &c., her
bergs, and by that means can travel very cheaply.—
A very had system, which was originally intended
to give them an opportunity of improving them
selves in the knowledge of their art, hut it is pecu
liarly favorable to vagahondizing. At the moment
I am writing this a silk weaver has applied to me
for aesistance."
Now, I would ask the mechanics of America to
look at this account SA given by a free-trade writer,
and to say what they would think of such a system
introduced here I That you are to make your liv
ing by going about the country begging, to that you
may be able to make come Now York dandy or
southern cotton planter a cheap coat, or a cheap
pair of boots, or a cheap hat. And yet you arc
ravely told by men calling themselves Democrats,
rhat this is the true democratic doctrine. Whether
it is so or not I leave you to judge. I now pass on
to Austria and Prussia. He says--

there, and most of the trades are supplied by the
itinerant journeymen. A carpenter can earn from

would have a glass of inferior brandy before going
to work in the morning. On Sundays, the men
would hive a little beer or wine, and the women

soon strive when those times will be upon them. .
"A poor tailor in Sogua, whose business does
not afford him the means, supports by day labor
himself, his wife, and eight children, who, on ac
count of their youth or attendance at school, can
cant little or nothing, that is ten persons without
incurring debts and without support of others, ex
cept a few articles of clothing which are given them
for presents. The work on which he is engaged is
chiefly wood cutting and stump grubbing, by which
he tams one day with another at the most, 24
kreutaers or 120 Coring per year, which in our
money would be 16 cents per day, or 48 dollars per
year. These people take in the morning, soup;

brandy to the value of 1 cent, and black bread for

who, during the day, have had potatoes, or garlic
and herbs, or some other vegetable, or pelhaps pota
toes again. These people taste meat, at the most,
sometimes on Sundays, never wine or beer."
There is one advantage in this kind of living, I
presume; and that is this, that those who live on
such food are not often troubled with dispepsia or
gout.
d Fatal Duel in Virginia,
We learn theta duel was fought on Friday morn
ing, about fl o'clock, in Virginia near the Chain
Bridge. ne parties were a young lawer,Juiian May,
sun of Dr. F. May, and a young student of medi
cine, Joseph Cochrane, brother of John T. Coch
rane, Esq., disbursing clerk of the War Depart
ment—all of Washington city. They fought with
rifles at fitly paces, an d upon the first fire, young
Cochrane was shot in the forehead, and was, at the
last accounts, lying in a farmhouse in the imme
diate n"ighborhood, with no Hopes of his recovery.
The Washington Standard says:—"' Dr. J. C•
Hall hastened to the ground, immediately upon the
receipt of thin intelligence, to render his surgical aid
to the young unfortunate.
Prom the various rumors and reasons afloat in
the city on yesterday, in relation to this disastrous
affair, we learn that it originated in a quarrel be
tween a Mr. Ash, of Philadelphia, HO a Mr. Pool, of
Georgia, in which Cochrane and May acted the
friends of either party, and that they settled it with-
out much difficulty. Growing out of this, a discus
sion arose as to the bravery of each ; and, in the
Nahum and heat of youth, without pausing to re
flect upon consequences, a challenge was passed, a
meeting arranged, and above is its lamentable ter- I
urination.
Thus has a young mar.. jag setting forth in the

Pacts about New Counties.
Four or five years ago the Legislature erected the
county of Clinton, to satisfy the Lock Haven Lor
en, A comparison between that county and our
own will serve to show the coot of 'new counties to
the people.
The expenses incurred in carrying on the affairs
of small counties, whether old or new, are always
higher in proportion than those of larger counties.
It appears front the census of 1840 that there
were at that ante 35,483 inhabitants in Huntingdon
county, and 8,323 in Clinton.
The published statements of the county commis
sioner's show that in the year 1843 the tax levied,
for county purposes, in Huntingdon county was
$15,568 31, and in Clinton county $12,437 66.
A rough calculation shows that the tax in Hun
tingdon county is about 44 cents to each inhabi
tant, while in the smaller county of Clinton it is
about $1 50 to each inhabitant.
It is apparent that the taxes in the small county
are more than three times as high as those in the
larger.
Will the people look into this matter before they
ask for new counties I

Hid subject, " The responsibility of the Liquor
Seller." was handled beautifully and forcibly. His
arguments brought conviction, so that every one who
heard him, must believe that liquor sellers, as such
never do one particle of good to society, never aid
in the support and welfare of the community, ne
ver benefit any person but themselves!
He distictly showed by proofs and , xamplcs cited,
that the liquor sellers were the cause, directly or
indirectly, of of least two thirds of the crimes
which flood our land, and that, hi very deed and
fact, they were murderers !—in this enlightened age,
with the truth before them, murderers with malice
aforethought!

The New Haven Courier of Tuesday, re
lates the particulars of a most dreadful occurrence
at Bethany, a few days since. The dwelling house
of Dr. Lucien Spencer was discovered to be on fire
about midnight, and Mrs. Spencer catching up her
two youngest children, succeeded, with Dr. Spen
cer, in making her way out of the homing tene
ment. The screams of her other two children, who
were still in their room, reached them where they
stood, and Dr. Spencer, almost to a state of frenzy,
dashed into the flame to save them—hut was him
self consumed with them. A portion of the remain~
of Di. S. and one child have been recovered from
the burning ruins, but of the other child no vestige
remained.
Madame Cetiline has addressed a letter to a
I.eipsic Journal, denying emphatically the report
that she is dead. She asks pathetically "What
have I done to the Gorman Press, that they have
now, for the fourth time, killed me ?" She adds, that
at the age of 64, aho still retains good health, and
lives in quiet retirement. Her letter is very plea-
santly wrist on.
The Murder Case,
The Phila. U. S. Gazette of the 21st says: A
boy about 15 years of age, named Gotleib Williams
Jr., was yesterday taken into custody and brought
to the Mayor's office, about 3 o'clock in the after
noon, on a charge of killing a boy somewhat older
than himself, named Peter Dcescher, by stabbing
him in the back or side wills a butcher knife, in the
High street market, near Second street.
It appears that Williams was left by his father,
Gotleib Williams, who is a pork butcher, to take
charge of his stall. During his father's absence, he
had a fight with the other boy. Scveial persons
who were eye witnesses to the whole transaction,
testified that after they had ceased lighting, some
words passed between them ; Drescher then struck
the prisoner in the face, when the latter ran to a
stall, about eight feet distant from where they had
I been standing, and taking up the knife, rushed up
on his assailant, and inflicted the deadly wound.—
The deceased was taken into a drug store, on the
south side of Market street, where lie shortly after
wards died. The prisoner was then brought to the
Mayor's office, where a lengthy investigation of the
facts of the case took place; after which he was
committed for a further hearing this morning at 11
o'clock.
The body of Drescher was conveyed to his place
of residence in Third street, near Brown. The
Coroner to-day will hold an inquest—having been
prevented from doing so yesterday, from the atten
dance of the witnesses at the hearing at the May
or's office.
Further (fearing of Goileib IVillionts, Jr.,—
The Mayor at 11 o'clock on Wednesday, continued
the hearing of Gotloib Williams, Jr., charged with
the wilful murder of Peter Doescher. Alexander
S. Rutherford testified that he saw the beginning of
the affray. He says that Williams attemped to
take some candy from the table of the deceased,
when the deceased resisted, and the fight ensued as
related in the paper yesterday. J. F. Hight testi.
lied chat he thought Williams was going after a
knife when he started, and he did not stop him, for
fear he would stab him, as they were not friends.—
The knife was taken from the stall with blood on it,
by George noes, sobs gave it to one dale Mayor's
officers, sod it was taken by him to the Mayor's
office. Williams was committed (the Mayor decli
ning to take bail) for further hearing.
o — j - The last doubt removed!—
ELlZA§irrwrow Iv, N.J., Feb. 20, 1843.
About two months ago I was seized with a vio
lent Cold, which soon caused raising of blood. I
tried varioun remedies, but none did any good; but,
on the contrary, nay Cough increased, and it was
feared it would result in Consumption. Hy acci
dent, Dr. Wistar's Funnily Medicine Guide met my
eye, which recommended !Jul..' of Wild Cherry.
I purchased a bottle, used it, and in one week ceased
raising blood—my Cough entirely disappeared, and
my health was completely restored, enabling me to
attend to my business no usual.
