INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 21.—This afternoon a
aaene occurred in Indiana State Convention, which'
Is not over creditable to that body. The subject
under consideration was the proposition to appoint
three commissioners to revise and modify the
laws, and to reform the mode of practise at law.—
Many bard things were said against the legal pro
fession generally, and Mr. ]lover, a delegate from
Posey (who is a lawyer,) said he could put his
finger on three men in the convention who expec
ted to be appointed the commissioners. Some
one called out "Name them ;" and a member sit
ting near Mr. Hovey called out "Kent."
Mr. Kent then rose, much excited, and called
Mr. Hovey a "cowherd ;" whereupon Mr. Hovey
advanced to Mr. Kent's seat, and struck him a
blow in the eye. Both parties were immediately
ordered into custody, and a long explanation took
place amid great excitement. Finally, apologies
were made, and, by a vote of the Convention the
reporters were requested to smother the Whole
Waautirorotr, Jan. 22.—The American Colo
nization Society met in this city last evening.—
Hon. Henry Clay presided, and made an eloquent
Mess.. Latrobe and Stanton, and Re, Mr.
Fuller, also made speeches. President Fillmore
many members of the Cabinet and a number of
ladies were present. The Society is in a most
Prosperous condition.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 24.—Gen. Jacobs, of Ten
nessee, is here, and will take the place of First As
sistant Postmaster General, Tice Major Hobble,
ALBANY, Jan. 24.—The Albany Evening Jour
nal, issued this afternoon, contains a letter from
Dr. Beecher, stating that Reuben Dunbar had con
fessed the murder .of the Lester children. The
confession will be published shortly after the exe
PITTSIMIGH, Jan. 24.—A number of persons
have been arrested in Allegheny City, on suspi
cion of being extensively engaged in counterfeiting.
The proof against them is said to be very positive.
Nair YORK, Jan. 35,
No news yet of the Atlantic, but there is every
confidence that she is safe. There is, however,
touch anxiety about her.
ALBANY, Jan. 25.
The New York Legislature have agreed to bal.
let for U. S. Senator on the 4th of February next
BALTIMORE, Jan. 25.—The Express Office ofl
Adams & Co., at Richmond, was entered on Wed
nesday night and robbed of notes and drafts to the
amount of $1,600. The robbery was effected by i
blowing open the safe with powder. A package
containing $5OO, was overlooked by the thieves.
About a dozen prisioners have made their escape
from the Ellicott Mills Jail. Two have since been
arrested. There were several negro stealers.
The Legislature has .w been in session nearly
three weeks, and the most important business has
undoubtedly been brought to the attention of the
members. A very large number of private bills
have been introduced and reported, but none, with
the exception of the Reading railroad hills, of spe
vial interest; and one of these, the bill of Mr.
Simpson, to pre4nt the company from declaring
and paying dividend until the debts which fell due
last winter be paid, is rendered unimportant by
the actual declaration and payment of a dividend
since tl:e bill was introduced.
The public bills of particular interest to be acted
upon, are, the one to divide the State into Judicial
districts, and fix the salaries of the judges, and
the one to establish a free baking system. These
will undoubtedly occupy considerable time, or we
could with confidence count upon a short session.
still it is not believed the session will be long.
Mr. Muhlenberg has introduced a measure into
the Senate, which appears to us to be wise. It
is to publish annually two columns of the acts one
to contain the acts of a public nature to be dis
tributed to the Judges and public officers as is now
done; and the other to contain only private acts,
such as concern individuals, municipal and other
corporations, These last to be officially published
but not distributed unless purchased by parties who
want them. As it now is our annual volume of
Laws is cumbersome, and a large proportion of it
not of interest to the public. The proposition of
Mr. Muhlenberg will obviate the necessity of fre
quent Digests, which burden the profession and the
There aro but few applications for bank charters
or for change of charters already granted. Should
the Free banking law pass it will work a renora
tion of our banking system.
There are a few divorce bills which have been
introduced, but none of them of public interest.—
These were all disposed of last winter.
The session bids fair to be a pleasant one, to the
members, and without that excess of party spirit
which has characterized some of the past years.—
The feeling is favorable to the protection of the
interests of the State, with a gradual hut generous
progression in improvements and reforms. The
men of talent in both Houses are liberal in their
tievre, and we believe all the branches of the gov
ernment are likely to co-operate to advance the
welfare of the people.—Pa Telegraph.
A rite. Yon 1111. SINKING Fl:Nl3.—The Phila
delphia Ledger says that Judge Sharswood gave
a verdict in favor of the Commonwealth against
the United States Bank for $1,203,750. With
costs and interest, in round numbers, $1,300,000.
The suit was brought to recover the hundred
thousand dollars annually, which the Bank, by
its charter, agreed to pay as a bonus to the School
Fund for twenty years. The suit will, of course,
be carried to the Supreme Court, and will, no
doubt, be warmly contested, as there will be an
effort to make this judgement take precedence oar
the assignments. For the poor ghsrehelders there
mime bat little hope.
WIRD TO Warm—About three weeks since two
ehilskr enn es4l t onging to a man named Brown, for
m er at the Globe Hotel, Exmouth, the
one fintr4ed the other five years old, were sent
by the nftliher, who kept a mangle, after a basket
of dotter:and were met on the Way by some boys
one of whom had on a most hideous looking mask.
The boy seeing the children frightened, ran after
them, repeating some gibberish, which frightened
thecermore, and having followed them until they
tumid the corner, of the street, transferred the
mask to another boy, who managed again to come
in contact with the poor children, who returned
home instantly, when their parents, seeing them so
pale and trembling very much, inquired what the
matter was, which they explained as well at they
could. The shock, however, was so great that
they never recovered, and their health declined
daily. The one died three weeks after, and the
other died tome days later. Each of them in his
illness often exclaimed : "He is coming !" "I
see him !" "There he is !" with other like ex
pressions.—Exeter Gazette.

Now COUNTERFEITS.-Counterfeit notes are
daily multiplying, scarcely a day passing that some
new and better divined fraud is not exposed. On
Friday the police of Philadelphia arrested a man
by the name of Daniel Tarr, and found at his
house, secreted away in a bottle, eight different
descriptions of counterfeits, amounting in all to
some three thousand dollars. There were tens of
the Northumberland Bank ; tens of the Miners'
Bank at Pottsville ; fives of the Lebanon Bank ;
fives of the Bank of Delaware ; fives of the Bank
of the Valley of Virginia; fives of the Harris-,
burg Bank ; threes of the Delaware City Bank ;
and twos of the Farmers' Bank of Lancaster.—
These last named are " Relief" issues, and the
whole hatch are said to be well executed. Some
of the counterfeits named have been noticed be- I
fore, and there is scarcely • doubt that they have
been widely distributed for circulation. The pub
lic, and especially small dealers, should keep a
sharp lookout, as it is almost impossible for the
press to furnish descriptions of the many attempt
ed frauds as fast as they appear.
fives have made their appearance ou this bank,
hut they arc so wretchedly executed that the most
careless examiner must detect theta. The words
"Lebanon Bank" are crooked.
terfeit 5 Relief issue, on the Lancaster Bank, is
in circulation. The following description of it
we find in Thompson's Bank Note Reporter: "Ss,
good imitation of genuine relief notes—vignette
State House with figure 5 on a medallion head
each side of it—medallion head and three figure
s's on each end—some of the letters of ' LaneKs

nette—not so in the genuine." This is a danger
ous counterfeit—look out for it.
gerous counterfeit upon the Notes of the Harris
burg Bank, has just been detected, It is describ
ed as follows;—l's, re-issue, relief, letter A.
These notes are most admirably done, and are
exceedingly difficult to detect. Appear to he a
very fine lithograph. The delicate lines that are
so distinct on the medallions of the genuine, are
in the counterfeit irregular, thick, and the spaces
between nearly filled op with ink instead of being
open. The centre vignette is almost without a
defect. The margins are not so perfect. The
letters in the word Clerk" are not of the same
size as in the genuine. The " Co. in " Dan
