car on the subject of the Banks and the'
Currency, which is intended to meet the
argument, of that paper in favor of a Ns

cherishes his ancient enmity to Banks and

all paper currency under twenty dollars by
a stamp duty ; and the winding up of all

delinquents—as a means of paving a way
for on exclusive 'mint drop' currency. He

The iteKeesporilturder Case.
Ou Monday morning, Chief Justice
Lewis read the decision of the majority of
the Supreme Bench, affirming the senten
ces severally pronounced by the Oyer and
Terminer of Allegheny county, in the
cues of Fife, Stewart and Charlotte Jones
convicted of murder in the first degree
The prisoner., declined to avail themselves
of a writ of habeas corpus, which the
Court tendered, in order that they might
be present at the reading of the decision if
they chose.
The opinion of Chief Justice Lewis is
an admirable judicial document. The en
tire proceedings in the Court below are re
viewed with a calm judgment.
The announcement of the• result was a
most painful blow to the prisoners. The
knocking away of this last prop which had
sustained his hopes struck Stewart with
the deepest anguish. lie had confidently
expected a reversal of the sentence, at
least so far as himself was concerned. Not
only by his calm self possession hitherto
but by his words, he has shown that he
was buoyed up by -hope, and did not, in
deed he days he could not, realize his aw
ful position. The terrible emotion which
shook his frame was beyond any previous
exhibition of feeling which he has mani
fested. He still maintains his innocence
of the awful crime of which he has been
Fife was cast down at first upon hearing
the result, but boon regained his stolid e
quanimity of demeanor, and had little to
say upon the subject. lie maintains that
he is an innocent man, and emphatically
declares that Stewart is also innocent,
Charlotte Jones was composed—it is
said almost indiffarent upon the reception
of the news. She is evidently of a very
low order of intellect; all the finer feelings
of humanity have apparently long azo
been eradicated from her nature by a life
of wickedness and crime.
The prisoners are now at the end of all
legal remedies from that terrible position.
Death in prison. escspe.,or executive cle
mency, is now their only salvation from
the terrible punishment which the law has
affixed to murder. Either of these three
is apparently impossible under the circum
stances of the case, and the best advice for
each and all of them is. "Prepare to meet
thy God."
Ae to the Democratic party, says the
Louisville Democrat, they know how the land
lien on the Slavery question. To which Pun.
lice of the Louisville Journal reponds, "Yee,
and the land knows how the Deniocratlc party
.kee en tbe Slavery vesetieet."
However potent the Washington Union
may be in other sections of the North to
stifle the indignation of the aroased De
mocracy in reference to the latest phase
of the KSIIOI3 business, it seems to be
without influenee in Illinois. It is by this
time notorious that the leading Adminis
tration paper in that *tate has revolted
against the ratification of the doings at
Lesompton The next most important
journal in Illinois to the Chicago Times,
on the Democratic s;de, is the Springfield
Registar, published at the capital. This,
too, has enunciated its views in the same
' unmistakeable style initiated by the l'imes
and to a similar effect. We have heard of
no Democratic papers in Illinois being on
the opposite side of the question, These
two sufficiently indicate which way the
wind is blowing. Illinois is the home of
S'.nator Douglas, and the Democratic per
ty there hes hitherto been led and ' con
trolled by him. I. is possible, but not
probable, that these two newspaper or
gans may have given utterance merely to
individual views, not in consonance with
those of the distinguished Senator. If
that were the case, it could not promise
very fair for the re-election of Douglas to
the Senate. A vague supposition is afloat
that thy utterances referred to were inspir
ed by Douglas to serve his own purposes.
This is rather favored by the determined
and energetic spirit with which the Chi
cago Times sustains the position it first
assumed, and returns the fire of the
Washington Union. The following ex
tract looks as though the man who wrot e
it felt insured against loss by such a fire:
"If the person conducting the Union
were a sane man, he would know that Mr.
Buchanan would never have been Presi
dent, nor any of his cabinet now in office,
had the Democratic early in 1856 hinted
at the possibility of the people of Kansas
being denied a vote on their constitution !
and yet the Washington Union, in its is
sues of the 18th, 19th and 20th inst can
hardly find words enough to express its
gratification that the principles of the
Democratic party have not only been
shamefully disregarded, but actually tram
pled under foot in Kansas. The Union
may exult, but the Union is not the ad
ministration, and the Union is not the
Democratic party. The Democratic par
ty stands pledged in every hamlet in the
United States to secure to the people of
Kansas the privilege of making their own
constitution, and that pledge, though a
Union newspaper and a cabinet officer

man of so much consequence as Senator
Douglas to very important in the present
contest. With such a leader, the nor
thern Democratic members of Congress
would feel no hesitation to opposing the
institution concocted at Lecompton. But
Senator Douglas was looked to with sim
ilar hopes at the opening of the last Con
grew, and sadly disappointed them. Mr.
Calhoun, the President of the Lecompton
Convention, was appointed Surveyor
General, as one of his friends, being an
Illinois politician. In Kansas, he is be
lieved to have been the depository of Dou
glas' policy in reference to the disputed
territory. Thie, however, may be only

The Warsaw (Mo ) Democrat thus
aunts up the substance of a letter
by a citizen of that county from ‘a Mrs.
Hudleson, written soon after the arrival
of the leiter in California
Mrs. H. gives a thrilling description of
the dangers and hardships attending on
overland trip to California. l'hey were
hourly in danger of being attacked by In
diens and Mormons who. says Mrs. H.,

ging, and murdering unprotected trains of

of marauders. His wife and child had
been killed before his eyes, he himself
badly wounded, and stripped of all his
property, including fifteen hundred dal

but during the excitement of the attack
she escaped, and driving six miles on

Gen. Walker's Destination.
The intimation given by telegraph. a
few days ago. that the ultininte destina
tion of t% Riker and his filihte.ter forces
might be Hayti, instead of NioaragUa, or
at least in case of finding too warm a re•
ception there, may be regarded as not al
together destitute of plausibility. In the
disturbed condition of afluirs on that island
Walker might render material aid to the
Dominican rebellion against the great
champion of negro equality, the Emperor
Faustin, and secure a controlling influ
ence in the political affairs of the island.
This, at precast, seem. to be a more
promising field for filibustering than Nic
aragua, where Walker could hardly suti-

'Now if there is one thing against which f

It was the tear that the Ninth would be
consolidated against the South, and the
South consolidated against the North, that
so largely contributed to put .he Democrats •
ic candidate into the Presidency, in 1856.
Sectionalism, or a geographical party, is
that evil in our system which the patriots
of the revolutionary era anticipated with
dismal forebodings, and against which Wa.
shington admonished his countrymen in his
Farewell Address. And it would be a sad
thing to sectionalise this country on a ques.
I tins like the Oxford and McGhee frauds.
It would be a most disgraceful spectacle to
I see a public servant repudiate d rind con
demised because he had set forth in de
fence of the purity of the ballot box, and
' in favor of the principle that the majority
of the people should rule ; for, however
men may mystify the issue, this is the great
principle involved."
So speaks Col. Forney, President Buch
enan'a man Friday, and his talk is well e
nough as a matter of sentiment, yet how
is such a state of things to be avoided, if
the South chooses, as it doubtless will, to
make common cause with him, and the re
suit would be a sectional array, growing
out of the very nature of things. The
only way to avoid this array of one section
against another is for one or the other to
give way ; but the South will not, and the
Press is very frank in saying that the North
' ought not. If the North does her duty,
therefore, a sectional quarrel is inevitable.
And so it must be, so long so Slavery con
tinues to be the great question in our pelt
tics. In this case, according to the show
ing of the Press itself, the self-respect of
the people is involved in sustaining Gov.
Walker. A gross fraud or series of frauds
is committer , in Kansas for the: purpose of
benefitting the pro slavery candidates for
the territorial legislature and giving that
party a majority in it; Gov. Walker detects
exposes end detente these fra ids; the South
admits the frauds, but inasmuch its they
were in favor of Slavery, demands, that
Walker shall be cashiered for his agency
in.dukinintr alvt 'hl6!
Now, it is not the fault of the North that
she steeds alone in such a case and if the
result of maintaining her stand should be
a sectional division line betevren paries,
the fact may be regretted but cannot be a-
voided. It grows legitimately nut of the
struggle .vhich Slavery is ever making fur
predominancy, and he is not a true mutt
who does not meet it and act upon it, with
out regard to the bugaboo cry of ...Section
altars " This absurd fear of Sectionalism
in the North (they have none of it in the
South,) always leads those who are in the
eight to give way to the wrong, and thus
this misteeken Immo of ..tuttionality . ' ends
continually in plunging the nation into
