The "Great State Stake," for $20,000, "play or pay," which is to come off on the Metairie Course, at New Orleans, on the Ist of April next, is exciting much interest at the South.— It is expected to be the greatest race which has ever taken place in this country, in the number of horses, the amount of money at stake, and the probable number of spectators who will be present. Horses of all ages may run, but limited to one from each State; four mile heats; $5OOO subscriptions; each horse starting to receive $lOOO out of the stakes, pro vided he is not distanced; and the winner to receive the remainder; each State subscribing is to be represented by three responsible gen tlemen, residents of that Slate, a majority of whom shall name the horse to run for that State. These are the terms of the race. A conspiracy We, most atrocious char acter has come to light in Massillon, Ohio. A number of young men were banded together for the purposes of robbery and arson, and one of the rules of organization empowered any member to take life when it stood in the way of the success of their enterprises, or to shield them from danger. Some of the conspirators have been arrested, and the officers are after the others. stir Drs. Reed and Sterner have analyzed the contents of the stomach of Dr. Gardiner. They found it to contain strichuine in large quantities. It was proved, also, that the pow- der ft.uad in Gardiner's pocket atter his death was also strichnine. Tho jury, after hearing the evidence of the physicians, rendered as their verdict that Dr. Gardiner caused his death by strichnine and tvAirt. Our State Convention. It was not our fortune to be present at the meeting os the late Whig State Convention, but we learn from those who were, that never, per- haps, in the history of the Whig party,has acre assembled at our seat of Government a Conven tion, where the State was so fully represented, and by so many of the best men of the party. Certain it is, that if there have been any that equalled it, in these particulars, there have been none which have excelled it. Nor is it I alone in these features, that this Convention was an extraordinary one. An earnest zeal and hearty purpose, to do that which should be for the best interests of the party; and a cOnfi dent and determined desire to do that which should satisfy all; and a cheerful declaration on the part of all to be satisfied with whatever was done, gave to the Convention such an air of strength and good-will, that it attracted the attention of our old adversaries,—and an one of them remarked, while standing a looker-on in the Convention—"they said the Whig party was dead," said he, "but I have never seen it give such evidencesof its active life and strength as I see in this Convention." Another peculiarity of this Convention was, that the friends of the different candidates were as warm in their advocacy of the claims of their favorites as if an election of the nominee was a fixed fact. Yet, with all this warmth and confidence, no ill blood was engendered or manifested. One purpose seemed to move ev ery spirit. Each member was determined to exert all his power to secure that which he thought for the best, failing in that, each was equally determined to admit, that whatever the majority of the Convention did do, would be for the best. Every county in the State was represented, we believe, except Erie; and some of them dou bly. Union, Mifflin and Huntingdon counties each presented two claimants for a seat in the Convention; and the committee on contested seats, after hearing the parties, reported that there was some informality in all their creden tials, and recommended that all should be ad mitted, each county, however, to be entitled to but one vote. So far as our county is concern ed, it was conceded by all, that we had a lull representation, Mr. Williamson and Mr. Blair, satisfying the whole Convention, that the Whigs of our county were of the "A No. 1" stamp, and that there would be a harmonious and en ergetic effort here to roll up a large majority for the nominees. On the third ballot, James Pollock, of North umberland, was nominated as the Whig candi date for Governor; and the result was hardly declared, before one unanimous and hearty shout proclaimed that there were none dissat isfied or disappointed. The lion. James Pollock, our candidate for G overnor, it will be remembered, has been three times elected to Congress from a district where Locofocoism is largely in the ascendent. A man of learning. and great power in the forum or on the stump; of cheerful, happy, and kind manners; with a warm, social, frank, and man ly heart, he has every where made friends, and preserved them. With a large experience in the public service during a stormy time, be brings into the contest a prestige of success, which belonged to no other candidate for nom ination, at this especial period. No man en- joys so much of the confidence of the whole) party,—no man comes with a more zealous and untiring army of friends—no man brings less of the aristocratic pride of place, and more of the feelings and spirit of the honest tillers of the soil, and delvers in the work-shop. No man could enter into a contest with a better show for success—no man could have been selected, ho will do more to deserve it; and no man could have been chosen, who, with a more grateful heart, will feel the honor conferred, and remember the friends of the party who shall toil with him, not merely for his success, but the triumph of truth. After the first ballot for Canal Commissioner, the Hon. George Darsie, present Senator from Allegheney county, was, by acclamation, decla red the candidate for Canal Commissioner.— For several years *Mr. DarsM has been in the Senate; and has, while there, won for himself never-dying fame, for his fearless, faithful, and never-changing defence of the State Treasury from depletion by the payment of unworthy claims. Ono of the ablest, and shrewdest, and most industrious Senators which ever graced that body, he has made himself respected and felt by all; and we were not a little surprised to hear a member of the other party exulting that Daraio's defence of the peoples' money had made him many enemies. Will the people hear and remember that ? It is just such a man that is now needed to sit in the Canal Board; and if the people knew their real interests, they would elect Darsie Canal Commissioner, by the votes of both parties. On the first ballot the Hon. Daniel M. Smy ser, now of Montgomery county, but lately of Adams, was elected as the candidate for Jus tice of the Supreme Court. On the adoption of the late amendment to the Constitution, Mr. Smyser, then residing in Adams county, was invited by the Whigs of the Bucks and Mont gomery District to be a candidate for President Judge of their several courts; and what is extraordinary, he was elected. A man of great intellectual power, with a mind stored with the learning of the Law, and its gleanings from the rich storehouses of science and belles letters, practical in all its workings, energetic and tire less; with an unbending fidelity, and earnest devotion to truth and right; who will duubt the propriety of the selection. After the nominations, the Committee on re solutions reported the resolutions which appear in an other column. They breathe the true spirit of the party, and speak our purposes not to be misunderstood,—they were passed separ ately, without one dissenting voice; and wo commend them to the careful consideration of every honest citizen of our county. Hereafter they shall receive our further notice if we deem it necessary. Sar Thirty church edifices in London are to be torn down this year, and their cites to be sold, or devoted to some pecuniarily profitable purpose. These churches are to be moved for want of congregations, and the funds resulting from the sale of the property will bu devoted to the erection of churchesin the suburbs of the great city, where hundreds of thousands of peo ple are without the privilege of church room. THE IMMEDIATE WAR STRENGTH OP FRANCE. —The Parris correspondent of the Boston At las, whose statements are generally worthy of implicit confidence, states that the forces which France can put in field immediately an* at any moment are 240 war battalions or 240,000 I infantry. 300 squadrons of mounted rues, or 33,000 cavalry, and 360, pieces of artgary, ITIOUTIDKI . by 30,000 . artilery men, with.

The report recom mended that all the contestants be admitted to seats, but that each district, he entitled to cast but one vote. The report gave rise to some discussion on the part of Messrs. Brooke, Flanigan, Taggert ann others, when it was finally adopted. • Mr. Hoffman, of Berks, moved that a com mittee of nine be appointed to draft resolutions expressive of the sense of the Convention, which was amended to read thirteen, and thus adopted. The President anncunced the Com mittee, as follows: . J:tcon HOFFMAN, of Berlm, Chairman. Cornelius Darragh; Allegheny; Ed.

Explanations having been made on the part of several gentlemen who presented themselves as substitutes. Mr. Flanigen of ' Philadelphia city, stated that he understood that the names of gentlemen had been given in to represent the County of Erie, who were not regularly elected; and he therefore desired to be inform. ed upon what authority they appered. The President of the Convention stated the question of Mr. F., and asked the gentlemen referred to for a response, when Mr. Alexan der Russell, of Allegheny, stated that, in con nection with another gentleman, he had been requested to represent the county of Erie, and that they had accordingly taken their seats; but as they were clearly ruled out by the reso lution they would retire.

Mr. Maxwell, of Northampton, moved to re duce the number of the committee to thirteen, and made a speech in support of his motion. Pending the question, the Convention ad journed till 71 o'clock this evening. 7i O'CLOCK, r. M, Convention again assembled. On motion or Cot. Edie, a committee of three was appointed to inform the candidates of their nomination. The committee are Messrs. Edie, of Somerset, Verner, of Allegheny, and Potts, of Montgomery. Tho consideration of the resolution for the appointment of a State Committee was resum ed, and was discussed at some length, by Messrs. Maxwell, Williamson, Jones, Flanigen, Fenlon, and others. Several motions were made to in crease the number to 20, 33, and 24, all of which were disagreed to; and the motion of Mr. Maxwell, (thirteen,) was finally adopted. The President announced that ho hail just received a telegraph dispatch from Gen. Lori mer, which he read to the Convention. The dispatch runs—" Say to my friends, hurrah for Pollock. I will do all that I can for him." It was received with tremendous cheering. The committee on resolutions then reported the following, which were read and adopted unanimously:— Resolved, That the Constitution of the Na tional and State Government embrace every thing that is essential to the peace, happiness and prosperity of the citizens; that all laws should be enacted with express reference to the greatest good of the largest number; and when passed in pursuance of constitutional authority, demand the obedienceef all the people. Resolved, That to preserve the National Uni on, ought to be the highest ambition of the American citizen, and that all attempts to weaken the affection of the people for its con tinuance and maintenance, to violate its coin promises, or to produce discussions of its val ue and efficacy, should lie indignantly frowned down, as a species of moral treason. Resolved, That those provisions of the Kan. sax Nebraska bill, now before Congress, which affect and repeal the Missouri Compromise, are a deliberate breach of plighted faith andpub lic compact, a high-handed attempt to force slavery into a vast territory now free from it by law, a reckless renewal of a quieted agita tion; and, therefore, meet the stern indignant, and unanimous condemnation of the Whig par ty of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Resolves?, That the enactment of the laws whether by National or State Goverantent, these important results should be constantly in view, to wit: universal education, religious lib erty, and the useful and happy employment of the toiling masses, the bone and sinew of the community..... . . Resolved, That our foreign intercourse should be conducted magnanimously, so that no in justice or wrong be done to others or submit ted to on our part.

Resolved, That the Whig party, are in favor of a just and equitable Homestead Bill, and re commend to our Senators and Representatives in Congress from Pennsylvania, to aid in pro curing the passage of such a bill. Resolued, That we congratulate the Demo cratic Party that former differences between them and the Whig Party, on the subject of the banking institutions of Pennsylvania, are settled by a resolution of the late Democratic Convention,recognizing and adopting the Whig doctrioe on that subject. .Resolved, That the Whig Party, now as heretofore, will continue to urge the sale of the Public Improvements as the only means by which our heavy and oppressive taxes can be reduced, and the ultimate payment of the pub lic debt be accomplished. Resolved, That this Convention with extreme pleasure present. td their constituency, the Whig party of this State, the names of James Pollock of Northumberland, for Governor, and George Darsie of Allegheny, for Canal Com missioner, and Daniel M. gmyser of Montgom ery, for Justice of the Supreme Court, because the gentlemen are not only faithful, sound and tried Whigs, but of approved ability and expo. rience for their respective stations and also hon est, pure, and good ken. The resolutions were read by Mr. Coffey, of Blair county. The thanks of the Convention were thee vo ted to the House of Representatives, for the use of the Hall; and to the officers, for their faith ful discharge of their general duties; when the Convention adjourned sine die, with three hear ty cheers for the nominees. After the adjournment a mass meeting was organized, by calling Col. Edie to the Chair, and appointing several Vico Presidents and Secretaries. Speeches were made by Messrs. Coffey, Benedict, and Casey, and great enthusi asm prevailed, A more respectable or spirited Convention has not been held in the State fur years, and better candidates for any offices have never been presented for the suffrages of the people. The auguries of success are cheering. 'moons Nature, A lady residing in Newburg, in this county, was delivered of a bicephalous mule child of a most singular fortnation. It had two heads, three arms and four hands. The child was not alive when ushered into existence. The two faces were almost precisely alike in features. The Democrat says its feet and legs were nat ural nod perfect. The body was divided in such a manner as to leave no doubt that it was composed of two bodies, which had by some cause become united. It is probable that it contained two hearts and two stomachs—in truth, all the internal apparatus of two comy plete bodies. It is much to be regretted that measures were not at once taken to remove ev cry doubt in regard to this matter. There were attached to the body, two heads, two per. feet arms, and one arm with two perfect hands. One of the heads was connected with the body by a neck which grew behind the right should. er; the other occupied the natural position.— The third arm was attached to the body just between the two necks. It had two hands, which were united immediately hbove the wrist by a sort of web, the palms facing inward, and all the fingers being perfect. In the entire range of medical science, this ease stands with out a parallel. The mother is past all danger. She positively missed to allow the child to be dissected.—Ckveland Plaindeakr. Ilscrecturno, March 18.—Mrs. Susan Bigler, relict of the late Jacob Bigler, and the mother of Gov. Wm. Biglci, of Pennsylvania,and Gov. John Bigler, of California, died this corning, at her residence, in Delaware township, Mer cer county, aged, about 70. Gov Bigler left this afternoon for Mercer, to attend the funeral, which takes place on Saturday. Us will re• turn on Tuesday. Romantic Affair. Last week, a Spanish boy about eighteen years old, named Joseph Edward Moe Pobalo,. passed through this city en nods for Washing. ton city, in charge of Adams & Co's Express Company Messengers. The story of his histo ry is essentially romantic. It appears that some ten years ago, while bathing on the coast near the city of Campenehy, Mexico, he, with five other boys, was stolen by a gang of French pirates, who kept them four years, nod then sold them to a merchantman, who kept them two years took them to the city of New Orleans, and there sold them to a Louisiana planter, for the term of their minority. Their owner was about to resell them to a shipmaster to make sailors of them, when the boy Pobalo made his escape, and worked his way to Lafayette, Judi :ma, where he attracted the notice of a gentle ; man who corresponded with the Mexican Min ister at Washington, regarding him. The Min ister became interested in the story of the boy, and wrote to have him forwarded, that he might restore him to his parents if they were living. The boy will probably reach the Mexi can Minister this evening, and be sent home, if there yet remains a home for him. The su perintendents of the various railroads over which lie has traveled since his history has be came known, have given him freepasses, and hotel-keepers have declared his bill settled on sight. Such is a very gond condensed novel. [Cincinnati Corn. First, 74 9 Dick's Sentence. Judge Hart, in sentencing the murderer at Dayton, on Saturday last, said: "not bloody devil siczed upon your human nature, God knows; but this is certain, that is suing, from your lurking place, you fell upon an old and defenceless woman, dragged her, perhaps, from the wagon, and with terrible, force beat her face and her skull into a mere mass; that you fell upon her mon, a lad of about fourteen years old; that in his young love of life he fled upon the winds of despair before your uplifted and murderous weapon; that he flew in vain; you outstripped him; the deadly blow fell upon his tender skull, and he, too, was in eternity. Your motives are not re vented. That they were cruel and bloody, and barked by a purpose which no consideration of mercy . could for a moment shake, this plan.— There ts no assignable motive for your deed but nn inexorable revenge. Francis Dick. you are guilty. Francis Dick, youmust die. It is the law of God; it is and ought to be the law of man, that the murderer shall die. Let no hope deceive you; no hope allure your mind from the steadiest conviction that your days are numbered. Tho sentence of the court is, that you be taken hence to the common jail ;Attie county, and be safely kept; that on the second Friday of April, 1854, (the 1460 you be taken to the place of execution, and that between the hours of 10 o'clock in the morning and 4in the afternoon of that day, you be hanged by the neck until dead. Important Arrest of Burglars•—lniquity Broken Up. On Friday evening, about 12 o'clock a man named Berry was robbed of $2OOO in sover eigns, near the Michigan Southern Railroad Depot, and Win. Morrissey, 'Silvan Brooks, John T. Peterson, and H. J. Maton, were ar rested by the night police, charged with the robbery. Further developmentg were made on searching the appartments of the prisoners showing their connection in systematic villiainy, and this morning another, and it is supposed the chief of the gang, was arrested at his house on Buffalo street, by officer Lower, of the day police. He is a Frenchman, Legion Lemier by name, ostensibly the keeper of a small jew elry store, but his establishment was found to include utensils not directly of service in the repair of watches, rings and broaches, though perhaps useful in making additions to the stock of the worthy proprietor. They were taken to the watch-house, and comprise a full set of bur. glars tools, offensive and defensive, "jemmies," slung-shots, bludgeons, &c. The examination was completed on the part of the peopleyestenlay, and will be continued on the part of the defence to day. Mr. B. had fortunately deposited in one of the quirks of this city yesterday, $l,OOO in sov ereigns, and taken a certificate of deposit.— This the robbers took from him, and it has not yet been recovered; it will be unprofitable stock for them to hold. The money and watch have been restored to Mr. B.—Chicago lour nal. A . Mysterious Murder--An Unknown Man Shot. An unknown man, apparently about 40 years of age, was murdered in a vacant field in the vicinity of Marcy avenue, Brooklyn, between 8 nud 9 o'clock last evening. His hat was found some distance froM him, which leads to the supposition that he was pursued by some person,who discharged a revolver while so close to hint that Isis coat was burned with the pow der. Three took effect, two in the shoulder just below the neck, and one in the small of the back, causing death in five or six minutes. Mr: Thomas Dower, residing at the corner of Marcy avenue and Dodney street, went to the door, and after two or three minutes, saw the injured man partially rise and fall back again upon the ground; he procured assistance and went to the spot, the injured man expired soon after without being able to speak audibly.— About 11 o'clock his remains were conveyed in a wagon to the First Ward belkower. De ceased was a stout built good looking man, with whiskers and moustaches; the third and fourth fingers of the left hand have been am putated close to the hand. He had on a heavy brown overcoat, light checkered pants, figured vest, satin cravat, fancy shirt, and red top thick books. A portmonnnie and a bunch of keys were found in his pocket, but no money or papers. An ice-pick was found near by, having stamped on the steel the name of ''ll. Thorpe."—New York Times. Onto U. S.

CHASE, 'but lie will represent very different opinions in the Senate. We believe he will go the whole fig ure for the territorial and Slavery extension, or anything else the South may demand of him. He is quite a young man, and in point of intellect will rank about filth-rate in the Sen. ate. An American in Prison in Prussia. The citizens of Syracuse, N.

Farrell's Ara bias Liniment, applied over the temples about three or four times a day, it was entirely remo ved, and I have felt nothing of it since. I went into the stable one night, to apply it to a horse's sore log, and being very lame lie stumbled and foil against my legs, crushing and bruising them so badly that they turned black flo my hat, rendering them powerless. I applied your Liniment, and was well enough in is few days to go about again no usual. I also crushed my finger in a shocking in:timer, by letting a back log fill upon it; your Liniment soon heal. ed it up, though. JOHN It. M'OEE. La Salle precinct, Peoria co., 111., Feb, 6, '49. [Esq. Barker, of New Canton, 111., says: Mr. H. G. Farrell's Arrt)ian Liniment has cured some bud cases here, which every other remedy had failed in; one was a white swelling and contracted cords in the leg of a boy twelve years old. The leg had withered away, and. was so contracted that he had leo use of it.— Three doctors had tried their skill upon it in vain, and he was first sinking to the grave, when the boy's father was induced to try H. G. Farrell's Arabian Liniment. Before the first bottle was used up he came to Mr. B.'s store, and the first words ho said were, "Mr. Barker, I want all that Liniment you have in the store; the one bottle I got did my boy more good than all that I ad ever been done before." That boy is now well and hearty, and has free use aids legs. It is good for sprains, bruises, cuts, burns and swellings. Look out for Counterceits!
