Huntingdon, June 11, MO.
The Slavery Compromise,-The
We agree with the Carlisle Herald that the
Country is getting weary, even to disgust, of the
endless discussion of the Ste Very Compromise
In the Semite, and note little dissatisfied with
the spirit in which Mr. Clay is slashing away
as its champion. We have also heard many ex
pressions to this effect in this quarter recently,
and the same feeling is noted by our. brethren of
the press elsewhere. Henry Clay is regarded
tvAti reverence and enthusiasm by the mass of
the Whigs, but some of his late outbreaks of
dictatorial petulance have given a deadly chill
to the fervid regard of thousands of his friends.
His attack upon President Taylor's recommen
dation respecting the admission of California,
has caused a general feeling of surprise arid cha
seine. Mr. Clay has con3tantl y professed a wil
lingness to accept .y other plan that offered a
prosp•ct o! peaceably adjusting the slavery
question, but tlie moment any each plan is pre
sented he dies back to his own, and pounces
upon the new plan with the most vindietiveepir
it. Such is represented to have been the man
ner and spirit with which he assailed Gen. Tay
lor's recommendation in the Senate last week.
The most respectable Washington letter-writers
represent Mr. Clay's manner, while pronouncing
his against Gen Taylor's plan, as inlet
erent, supercilious and overbearing in the highest
degree. Now when it is considered how sig
nally Mr. Clay's own plan has failed to meet the
approving judgment of the country, it will be
evident row little he was warranted in this bit
ter aasault upon Gen. Taylor's recernmendation.
Again, in the Senate, on the 29th inst., as the
telegraphic report of the proceedings states—
Mr. Clay presented a petit,on of citizens of
Barks comity, Pa. asking a modification of the
Tariff, so as to afford adequate protection to the
coal and from interests. He remarked that he
had heard with greatregret, that these intereste,
as will as other inarmiacturing interests in vari
ous parts of the country were greatly suffering.
Of one thing the country might be assured, that
until this agitation of slavery was disposed or,
one way or the other, none of these interests
could receive any attention on the part of Con
gress. For himself, he must say that his mind
was so entirely engrossed with this vital subject
that he had - not, and could not, give his attention
to any other subject until that should be dispo
sed of. When that should have been accomplieh
ed, without proposing any extravagrant meas.;
are he would be prepared, end lie believed ell
aides of the House would be ready, to look into
th-se manufacturing interests, and afford such
relief as might seem necessary if any. He mo
ved that the petition be laid upon the table.—
Agreed to.
A very significant hint to the North ! Here
is the practical triumph of the treasonable de
signs with which the ultra Southern members
opened the present session of Congress. The
cry of "Disunion" and "Dissolution" has ef
fected its object, and there can be no legislation
until the South has secured its "rights"—the
wheels of government are to be stopped, even,
Until the demands of the Slavery agitators are
yielded. And Mr. Clay, knowing the pdwer
and influence which these men have been allow
ed to gain, has no rebuke for thee, but turns to
the North and says "yoga must yield." You
may be suffering from the deluge of British im
portations—your Iron Works and Manufactories
may be sinking into bankruptcy and ruin—your
free laborers may be suffering from want of em
ployment—but we can't do anything for you.=
We are all so absorbed with this slavery agita
tion, here in Washington, that we have not even
time to think of you I
The North is desirous of having an amicable
adjustment of the Slavery question—even "a
compromise" of it. Such a compromise is pre
sented in Gen. Taylor's plan, which does not
ask the abandonment of a principle sacred to
thousands. But Mr. Clay's compromise will
not settle the question. It will only settle the
adniission of California, which had a right to
admission without compromise. But if an en.
just slave-catching bill is forced thro' Congress,
the agitation will be renewed with ten-fold fury.
Modification of the Tariff.
A letter recently received from a distinguish
ed Member of Congress from Pennsylvania,
gives us the following encouraging information
t❑ regard to the determination of the Whigs to
effects modificaticn of the Tariff. The letter
4r Mr. Hampton, of the minority of the Com
mittee of Ways and Means, with the assistance
of Mr. Meredith, and the Whig members gen
erally, is preparing a Tariff bill, and so solo as
t can be perfected it will be presented to the
ilouse. We have frequent meetings of the Whig
members, and a better feeling is evidently be
„tinning to prevade our ranks—a feeling that it
due to G.n. Taylor, and the people who elec
ted him, that the measures of his administration
should have a fair opportunity of going beture
Lhe country. We are determined, many of us,
that Coseress not adjottra until the Loco
romps have been put to the tart on the subject

Old Zack and the Cuban Expedi-
The Baltimore Sun says that "the orders for
itting out the vessels of war to intercept the Cu
3an expedition, emanated from Gmeral Taylor
alone. It is understood, that when advised not
to notice tit. Cuba expedition, he said: "The
law of 181 , 3 in plain and positive; and I will
execute it at every hazard." His members of

Supreme Court.
• -
The following are some of the cases from this
county, decided by the Supreme Court at the
late term :
M'Alahon vs. M'Mahon.—Opinion ofthe Court
delivered by Bell, J..—When a partial partition
of lands held by several joint heirs, was made in
the absence of one, and the portions of estate
set apart by mites and bounds, and the portion
of the absent one was thrown into common with
one other, and actual possession taken by the
other, unauthorized, the one who was absent
may at his option •letnand a new portion of the
whole tract, regardless of the long continued
possession, (since the year 1830,) or he may
adopt all the features of the partition, and re
cognize the act of the one who took his purpart
as his own, and come upon their joint shares,
with all the improvements, and may maintain
ejectment for the same, as was the case here.—
Nor will the statute of frauds intervene in such
eases. The acts of the self-constituted agent,
by such ratification, becomes, in contemplation
of law, the act of the principal. Judgment af
firmed. I. Fisher for plaintiff in error. A. W.
Benedict, contrrl.
Fisher, gni. tam vs. Patterson.aopinion of
the Court by Rogers, J.—The selling of foreign
goods and merchandise out of a canal boat along
the canal, comes within the description of a
hawker, pedlar or petty chapman travelling from
place to place, selling or exposing to sale for
eign goods, wares and merchandise," under our
Act of Assembly, and exposes the offender to
the penalty of that act. Judgment reversed,
and a venire de novo awarded. Orbison for
plaintiff in error. A. P. Wilson, rostra.
ItlcAninch vs. Laughlin.—Opinion of Court
by Gibson, C. J.—When the facts are within
the knowledge of both parties, and the mistake
was in the judgment they formed of the legal
effect of them, equity affords no relief. Judg
ment reversed. I). Blair for plaintiff in error.
W. P. Orbison, Contra.
In the case of the heirs of Summerville vs.
Jackson, from Blair county, Judgment of Court
below was affirmed. We have not seen an ab
stract of the opinion in this case.
Cuba Exel ement in N. Orleans.
The Philadelphia Inquirer of Thursday says:
Our Washington correspondent informs us that
letters have been received from highly respecta
ble sources in New Orleans stating that the ex
citement in that city with regard to Cuba was
greater than ever, and that thousands would at
once go there, if there were any means of con
vey afire. He adds that there is another Expe
dition on foot, and that the ill success of Lopez
and his handful of followers, hail not in the slight
est degree dampened the feelings in favor of the
enterprise. It is urged that if the whole Span
ish Army could not prevent Lopez from landing,
that it would be easy to land at any time a larger
force. The indications are, that trouble will
grow out of this business.
Outrages in Philadelphia
The City and adjoining Districts of Philadel
phia seem to have almost entirely lost the pro
tection of the law.
A Mr. Mooney, one of the police officers of!
Philadelphia, was shot recently at one of the
disgraceful firemen's riots in that city, and died
it few days after from the effect of his wound.—
The Governor being in the city at the time (tithe
excitement occasioned by the deed, issued his
proclamation offering a reward of $l,OOO for the,
apprehension of the murderer, which hos had
the effect of bringing him to I Wit. A coroner's
inquest in the case, after a thorough investigation
reported that the "said Cornelius Mooney came
to his death on Sunday morning, May 26th, from
can o- pistol shot in the hands of Patrick Mc-
Williams and Peter Lobb." The evidence is
very strong against the accused. McWilliams
has been arrested, and is now in custody.
FrOm California,
The steamship Cherokee, from Chagres, ar
rived at N'-w York on Wednesday, withone mill
ion three hundred and fifty-two thousand three
hundred and sixty-one dollars in gold dust, and
California mails to the first of May, inclusive.
At San Francisco, trade has assumed a more
lively turn, and as the large amount of gold,
which has been wintered in the mines comes
down, it gives as impetits to all kinds of bus
The owners of cattle along the country, aro
beginning to supply milk and butter, which re
duces the price of the imported article.
Another great excitement has taken place at
Panama. The officers of the Panama steamer
Echo having been robbed by a colored boy, he
was arrested. The natives rushed to the res
cue, and put the party to flight. The next slay,
upon the occasion of the re-arrest of the boy, a
fight took place, in which Mr. Sempler, of New
York, was killed. It is reported that five or six
of the natives were shot.
All the Americans became highly excited, and
turned out, and it was only by the utmost exer
tions of the Governor and American Consul that
a general fight was prevented.
The body of Mr. John Everett, of Cayuga,
N. Y., was found horribly mutilated:
The- Legislature of California adjourned, af
ter passing 143 acts and 17 joint resolutions.
The Cuba Business.
Our government has sent steamers to Cuba,
to demand the American prisoners captured near
Yucatan. Our Government insists that a die
tinction shall be made between men committing
and those captured under a mere intention to
commit crime, and that the prisoners captured
in or near a Mexican Island not having commit.
ted any crime against Spain, are not subject to
punishment in Cuba. _
Our government has stood by Spain in pro
tecting her territory, and it would be well tor
Spain to give up these prisoners, or she may
have a bigger war on her hands than that with
Gen Lopez.
ABS.. OP MlN.—Remarkable eases of that
mantel inaptitude called , 'absence of mind" have
often been noticed.
A rich one occurred a while since in this
town. A nice old gentlemen went to the tny
titian for prescriptions for a young lady at his
home, and also for his wife who was sick. The
Doctor ordered a blister for the young lady, and
some drops for the wife. The old gentleman
with profound gravity gave the drops to the
young lady, and the blister to hie wile—but as
the letter did not seem to work for a long time
apprehensions arose which were dispelled only
upon an examination by the physician, who had
been sent for, which disclosed the fact, that the
blister had been laid with the wrong side down !
—Pena Tel.
U:7 - Rev. John Newland, Malt, one of the
moat eloquent men of the age, died at Mobile,
on the 35th of May.
'nom. Um:la.—An inquest was held, a day
or two sibce; at the Lunatic Asylum in Boston
on the body of a lady ; and the verdict returned
was, “died of general debility, supervening on
tight lacing and insanity." Her figure was what
is called genteel, and her vanity on this point led
her to tight lacing, which was, in part, the cause
of her death. Her insanity was of a harmless
character, and she was easily managed, if permit
ted to make and wear headdresses of an extra
ordinary height. While wearing one of these
towering ornaments she considered herself the
queen of the world.
James Dromer, of Farrington, England, spoke
on Tuesday the 14th, for the first time for
wards of 13 rears ; her first inquiry was for
her aunt Killen, and when her aunt came, the
girl immediately repeated the Lord's prayer.— ,
Extreme weakness prevented her from articu
lating many words in succession; cramps and
convulsions ore supposed to have unlocked the
jaw for the time. She experienced a great deal
of pain for many days ; the jaw is again set ao
firm as before. The girl seemed to apprehend
that death would soon terminate her existence.
A New RELIGIOUS Oanna.—The Pittsburg
Gazette of Friday says On Tuesday evening
last, a young lady was ordained in the English
Lutheran Church in Seventh street to the office
of derzeoarsos. Deaconnesses are a reli4ions or
der of women in this denomination, who devote
their lives to various occupations of charity, and
take vows of celibacy for this purpose. The or
der has been established for some years in Ger
many, and has lately been introduced into this
country. This lady, however, is the first who
has yet been ordained.
Cr7"The Supreme Court of this State has de•
eided, that a promise by a bankrupt to pay a
debt discharged by bankruptcy, is binding,
though not made to the creditor or his authori
zed agent.
COL. FHPMONT.-The Geographical Society
of iondon have voted a gull medal to Col. Fre•
mont for having made, during the past year, the
moat valuable discoveries in geography of any
known person.
Monroua Comm.—The Harrisburg Tele
graph says they have had a great time of it at
Danvill since the return of Senator BEST. Pub
tic honors awaited him on every side, ands pub
lic dinner was tendered, but declined.

never known a better abused Administration than
Gen. Taylor's. If he doe: anything, it is wrong;
if he does not, that is also wrong."
