Dora went to her chamber, thoughtfully,
and this was the beginning of happiness
that few hearts taste on earth.
Yes, happintss! althouga Dora's soul
was troubled to tts depths, to know, to
feel sure that her lover's views wer..l low
and narrow—that there was in his char-
acter the bigotry of manhood; that un
truthfulness was hiding secret theories
and determined will.
Watching, with newly opened 'eyes,
her lover's soul, shit became confirmed
that it was small and poorly led. The
graceful manners, the gentlemanly bear
ing. the brilliant wit, were but elegant
decorations to a vain, lean spirit.
The beingthat she loved in her imagi
cation had more body and less clothing to
it; she could not take for her sours mate
a man all mind and manners, without a
Christian heart !
She sp4ke vVith him in gentle confidence
of nil she hoped to be, and of all she ho

it—wearied, rebelled, resented, scorned
her—was glad to break the bond which

Happiness seemed to Dora a thing she
never was to enjoy again upon the earth.
She did not wi'h to marry Robert, but
it was hard to give him up when she h a d

That evening, when you shut your

There in so little point iu this lengthy
document that we hardly deem it neces
sary to notice it at all, believing the mere
reading • fit will confirm the evidence al
ready presented against its authors. We
observe, however, that Kenzie does not
deny employing a physician for the poor
house at more titan double the salary as
ked by another equally as good ! Ile
does not deny the loaning and afterwards
bestowing a valuable yoke of cattle to
John Hicks! He does not deny that a
considerable amount of property brought
to the poor house by paupers remains un
accounted for; nor does he even deny that
brother Leas got $5OO more for the
farm than he originally asked foi it. As
he has attempted a long vindication, and
is entirely silent on all these grave char
ges, makes no attempt to deny or explain
them, it is fair to regard his silence as a
nirSiCtisTaillin oath ^air t•ltelviria
dries,' but makes an effort to divert at
tention from them by complimenting the
convenient Steward's skill in husbandry !
This dodge won't take with the people.
They want to know 'what Mr Glasgow
furnished, at his own cost, to the amount
of more than a thousand dollars. If he is
a good farmer, he must have learned at a
very tender age, and the fact, if true, will
not explain the 'sundries.' Kenzie's un
lawful dealing with the poor house is
virtually justified on the ground that oth
er Directors had been guilty of the same
malfeasance. This reminds us of the ex
cuse of the first partaker of stolen fruits—
'The woman whom thou gayest to be with
me, she gave me of the tree and•l did eat;'
or as Kenzie has it, 'the Directors who
did precede me, they did violate the law,
' and I imitated their example !' Another
reason assigned in justification is his good
luck in passing the account before the Au
ditors ! We can not find it in our heart
to comment on this portion of Kenzie's
letter as it deserves. It reveals a kind of
morality we do not understand.—lt must
be Straightout ethics. No Christian so
ciety exce,•t the Jesuits, could be suppo
sad to sanction it and retain the confidence
or respect of Honest minds, either in the
church or wit of it.
One other point, and we have done with
Kenzie's special pleadings.
Poor Kenzie, with a consciousness of
his defence ess condition, and shrinking
from the frowns of just indignation :hat
meet him on every side, turns Imploring
ly to his Straightout friends for sympa

hungry rabble, he shrewdly reminds
them that he has patronized their organ
and its locofoco ally, up town. Now we
are glad Kenzie has done this; it remove,
every doubt of his true position, and he
will not again be able to seduce honest
Americans and Republicans into his sup
port, but will be left to the miserable fac
tion, the 243, that voted Hazlehurst, and
sacrihsed our Senator for W harton votes,

we opposed the prominent candidates at
the last election. We opposed what we
knew to be the Straightout, Hazlehurst
end of the county ticket, and are proud of
our success. Our only regret is, that we
did not carry our opposition fur enough,
as far as our friends, and purge
the party a little more. But we erred in
ignorance, having a better opinion of cer

But Kenzie had another motive in this
distribution of poor house patronage; ho
wished to expose his swindling operations
as little as possible. This end he accom
plished by selecting a ,nedium of publi

of the deceived voters and tax payers who
placed him in power, The American it
is well known, has not two hundred sub
scribers in the county, outside of this Bor

We learn from our friend, Capt. John

occurred on the Six Mile Run branch of

the 30th ult. It appears that two young
men, by the names of Ira Foster and Sam

hood, were employed in loading cars with
hoop poles, and af er getting one loaded,
they got on the front of it, and two oth
ers got on behind for the purpose of bra

not work, and the result was that the car
ran off; the two men behind threw them
selves off but sustained little injury. The
other two in front could not get off, and
when they came down to the roam road
at Riddlesburg, they came in contact with
four other cars. The collision was tear
ful, and young Foster had his leg broken
above the knee, while the other, Samuel

Execution of Andcrson & Richards.
LANCASrEIi, April 9, 1858.
This is the day appointed by the Governor
for carrying into effect the sentence of the
Court upon Alexander Anderson and Henry
Richards, the two negroes convicted of the
murder of Mrs. Garber and Mrs. Ream, two
respectable elderly ladies of Manhiem town
ship, about five miles from this city. The
murder was committed on Tuesday morning,
December 16th, at the house of Mr. Conrad
Garber, while he was out attending to business.
Mrs Ream was a relative by Marriage of Mrs.
Garber, and had called in to see her. While
she was there, the murderers came in, on pre.
ext of obtaining a job as chimney sweeps,
and finding the women defenceless, they stab
bed them, leaving them dead on the floor, and
then stole such money as they could lay their
hands on and fled.
As soon as the crime was discovered, the
population was aroused and pursuit made o

lurking about the neighborhood. They were

The execution, of course, had to take place
in the yard of the prison, before a limited
number of spectators. The gallows was erect
ed yesterday. It consisted of four upright
timbers, sixteen feet high, connected at the top
by four cruse ties, across two of which the
beam rested to which the ropes were attached.
The platform on which the prisoners stood was
seven feet six inches froth cross-besot. The
platform was made to drop entirely to the
ground, by the turn of a lever. Tan was
spread on the ground to prevent any noise
from the falling of the platform.
The prisoners have fur some time expressed

The morning was spent in religious exercises
and in conversation with the ministers and

ed that they should be hung between the hours
of 10 A. M.. and 3 P. M.
About ten o'clock the wife and children of
Anderson were admitted to see him, and the
interview and parting were most affecting.

the course of the wind ; but who finds any sail•
ing the other way ? The extent of a change
wrought in the public mind by a bad measure
is never fully evinced in the ensuing popular
vote, especially if the contest he for local

discipline or affection, to vote with their old
party to oblige or advance personal friends
who are candidates—to obtain or retain an
office—or hoping to bring them over to their
views: Where one votes plump against his
party in a loyal contest following quick upon
the heels of a great public wrong, a dozen at
heart condemn the. wrong,. Lerompton we
think is done ; but its revival and passage
could only serve still further to distraot and

The Washington correspondent of the Phil

the Senate last Friday, while the Crittenden
Kansas bill was pending, which is in no way
flattering to our Pennsylvania Senator. The
writer says:
'I have just left the Senate, and saw Bigler
in the hands of Douglas. Heavens ! what a
specimen of cruelty to ae.imals 1 Bigler's van
ity is proverbial, and his stupidity is painful.
I blushed to see his awkward, ungainly, and
miserable manner. The President should
send him to a grammar school. He used
such phrases—'l have ram to the conclusion;'
and, in alluding to the Upas tree. ho said,
'This slavery question is the Upaso.'—He used
t he word 'is,' for 'ate; and 'done,' for ',lid,' &r.
and all this with a 'Captain Grand' air, and an
affectation of style that would have made a
dog laugh.—Douglas stepped up, took hint by
the cuff, and pummelled him through the Sen
ate, making every Pennsylvanian hang his
head in confusion. What a blessing is the

Taming the most Wild, Viclouls
Unmanageable Horses.
As practiced by Mr. J. S. Rarey in Europe, and
by myself at No. G. 5 & 67 Watts St., New York,
is creatig a complete revolution in the manner
of training the most noble of brute creation.
The public are aware of the immense excite-.
meet which now waits in all Europe, in conse
quence of witnessing these astonishing effects
produced by the will of man over the horse.—
By this process, the wildest colt or the most vi
cious horse, of .y ago, may be subdued in a few
hours so us to obey the slightest word or motion
of his master.
Notnatieriiow vicious or stubborn, he is sub
clued just as easy, and learns to obey in propor
tion to his intelligence ; and it is astonishing ;
' to witness his high degree of intellect when un
ker the complete control of man. and when
once thoroughly trained he never forgets it,
I will take the most unulauageable horse in,
America ,and in fifteen minutes will make hin
lie down, and will handle him every way, even.
put my heed between his hind feet ; and in one
hour, will learn him so that a boy can handle
him with ease, and be will then look with affec
tion instead of defiance on his master, and soon,
will follow him anywhere.
By this process, lie is completely broken of•
fear of cars, umbrellas, robes, or any other ob
ject Many valuable horses have been ruined
from fright, and lives have been sacrificed to vi
citus .d uninanagaitl le horees—in fact, noth
ing is snore dreaded than an ungovernable horse.
I warrant this process sun•e in every case, I
have determined to keep the secret no longer,
as it has hitherto been confined to the few horse
trainers in circuses ip this country, but has ex
isted for centuries in Arabia. I fbrnish the
whole inforination in printed form, so clearly de•
monetrated, that any mad can practice it at
once without the least injury to himscllf or horse,
and will send the same to any address on receipt
of fire dollars. It is the same diet Mr. Rarey
is now se.ling in England and France far $5O.
I would respectfully say, that I cannot under
take to answer letters which do not contain the
above amount. 11. B. ARMSTRONG,
