Horse Racing.
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
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

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 policy of protecting oar
home industry, against the depressing influence
of foreign capital and labor, is as sound in prin
ciple now as ever, notwithstanding the acetden
tal causes, whirls for the moment, may seem
to declare otherwise.
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,

cer county, aged, about 70. Gov Bigler left

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.

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

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
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.

Mr. 11. G. .Farrell.—Dear sir: I had been
afflicted with the' Sun Pain" for the last ten
years, and could never get relief except by
bleeding; but by the use of H. G. Farrell's Ara

three or four times a day, it was entirely remo

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.

[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.
