omnibus was coming up Market street, filled with
passengers from the railroad depot, to the Cumber

a young man named Moses I...Clossen, a cabinet
maker by trade, ran out of Mr. Stahl's tavern and
attempted to climb up to the drivers sent, but his
hold slipping, he fell and both wheels of the omni

was taken up senseless and died in a few minutes.
He is said to have been intoxicated.

when most of our inhabitants were attending divine
service in their respective places of worsip, their
devotions were interrupted by an alarm of fire.
The various congregations immediately ran into
the streets, when it was discovered that the Rob

sumed, together with a number of Merchants'
shops and warehouses on the opposite side of Dun

been erected since the last fire. The wind blow

raging with indiscribable fury to leeward, sweeping
in its progress to the South the width of one block

It was found impossible to stay its progress until
it had laid waste four blocks, and part of three
others, containing an area, the principal part of
which was closely built, of nearly thirty acres of
ground. The loss is very heavy.

Treasury, by Sheriffs, Constables and others who
may decree to see bun.

as Post Master of this city ?" is a question frequent

Honourable Senator, now Secretary of the Treasury,
Walker, was last in Natchez, didn't he sup with .
the Post Master? and wasn't he arrested by the
Sheriff, in the Post master's Parlour, for some little
debt he had pledged his honor several times, very
solemnly, to pay, which pledges he had, as in nu

didn't the Post Master write a very indignant let

sanctity of a private dwelling, fur having thus cau

On the subjects to which they refer, I have long
since matured and avowed my opinions. During
the recent presidential election the tariff of 1842
was much discussed. The democratic party of this
state took a decided stand in favor of this measure.
The leading interest of the state are involved in
its preservation. The people without distinction
of party, concur in desiring that its provisions
should remain unaltered, and regard any attempt to
change them as hazardous to the interests of Amer
ican industry. Supported by the democratic party
of the state in my views, and feeling the importance
of the measuro to Pennsylvania, I have no hesita
tion in declaring that I am in favor of the tariff of
1802, and if elected to the senate of the U.S. I will
sustain it without change.
The arnonnt received into the treabury from the
public lands will not for many years be of much im
portance. Whether the proceeds of such sales
should he distributed among the states, is a question
that in my opinion will not for a long period be of
much practical moment. 'rho patio lands are hold
in trust, however, for the benefit of all the states.—
In my apprehension the bost application that this state
can make of her share in that trust, would be its em

of the public lands, and if elected will support that

HIOII HANDED OUTRAGE-WRIT OF HABEVS
Cotters SCOPENOYD.—The Legislature of South
Carolina, at their late session, passed a law en-
'flat no negro or free person of color, who shall
enter this state on board of any vessel, as cook,
steward, or mariner, or in any other employment on
board such vessel, and who shall be apprehended
and confined by any sheriff, in pursuance of the
provisions of said act, shall be entitled to the writ
of mast's CORMS."
The Constitution of the United States, sec. 9.,
"'no writ of Weiss co pus shall notbc suspen
ded, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion,
the public safety may require it."
South Carolina thus, in another instance, says
the N. Y. Express, sets at defiance the Constitution
of the United States, and abolishes the great lead
ing feature of American liberty. The writ of
hams corpus has been allowed in that S tate, ever
since the reign of Charles the second. This is the

civilized world that they wish to acquire Texas in.

I believe, however, that Mr. Griffin has saved part
of his books, but lost all his papers. Mr. Rice has
lost moat ell his goods. Messrs. Clayton and Ben

0:::? From the Pittsburg Age" of the 19th inst.,
we perceive that a large number of contracts have
already been entered into, for the re-building of
houses, &c., in that city. Messrs. Lyon, Shorts &

tered into to re-build some half a dozen manufacto
ries, Foundries, &c., with many dwelling houses.
Of course the above is but a partial list, (says
the Age,) a complete one cannot be expected at
present. Enough is known, however. to enable us
to say that the entire burnt district" will be re
built in a very short space of time.

Pennsylvania, will rise partially eclipsed by the

greater part of Europe and Asia; but the eclipse
will be central only within the Arctic circle. At
no city in America will the beginning of the eclipse
be visible, and greatest obscuration only in New
Foundland, Prince Edward's, Cape Breton, and
part of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. In
Boston, the eclipse will end about 23 minutes after

We're not ourselves,
When nature, being oppressed, commands the mind'
To suffer with the body."
This is a truism conceived by the master mind;
of Shatespeare, which neither sophistry nor argu ,
ment can require. To all those who are suffering
from bilious attacks, indigestion and flatulency, We'
would with great sincerity recommend, as a never
failing remedy Brandreth's Pills. The testimony
we have had submitted to us in favor of this admi—
rable medicine, fully justify our speaking of these'
Pills in terms of the highest praise. .

any medicine we have ever possessed. Besides its
