DROWNED MAN FOUND.
On t , uturday of last week the body of a
man was found floating in the Juniata
Dam, about two miles above this. It was
brought down to this place in a skiff,
where an ,xamination was made. There
was nothing upon the person of the de•
ceased by which his name could be as
certnined, unless from a paper somewhat
in the shape of r bill which shows a pur
chase of beef to the amount of übout fifty
dollars, and a balance still remaining of
about four dollars and fifty cents. The
bill or paper was George Hutchison, by
Jack 'l'aylur, in his pocket was also found
money to the amount of forty four cents
Ile was apparently about forty years of
age, about five feet six inches high, and
black hair. His clothing consisted of
black broad cloth coat, vest and pants, a
pair of kip boots pretty well worn.
Since the above was put in type, we
have been informed that the name 01 the
drowned man is John Watson of Shaver's
Creels, Huntingdon county. It appears
he had been attending court and had bor
rowed a coat of Mr. Hutchison, in which
or The deed is done, Kansas a Slave
State, the vile contrivance of fastening
Slavery on the Free people of Kansas,
has been consumated. Liberty shrieks !
and tyrants rejoice ! On Friday last this
bill of abominations, English's bill, even
worse than the Leoompton constitution it•
self, has passed the Senate, and House of
Representatives. This bill holds out a
bribe to the free State men to induce them
to accept Slavery as the darling nurse
ling of the President, or if they do not
they shan't come into the Union at all.
Thus the last blow has been struck against
the liberty of the North. This shave oli
gaichy with the dough faces of the North
bought and sold on the shambles in the
market, have fastened and riveted the odi
ous principles of Slavery upon the Free
men of Kansas. This bill refuses to let
the freemen of Kansas vote for their own
Constitution ! 'Phis is the liberty which
the locofoco party are endeavoring to en
chain every Northern man ! Call ye this
Democracy ! 0 what crimes have been
done under this name ! The old dotard
Buchanan and his satellites, leave disgrace
themselves and are only fit for Russian
serps. The President must have got his
bead turned in Englrnd. Intercourse
with Kingly power has brought his decli
sing faculties and old Federal antece•
dents to the belief that he is a King.
Will the Free nien of the North sub
mit to this vile abomination t ‘t ill the
North ever permit Slavery to be carried
,nto territory now free ? Can any party
in the North sustain itself upon such an
odious principle 1 We now turn with
loathing from the subject of such deep
degradation, and look es our only hope
and safety to the stern, unyielding, un
bought, integrity of the ninety two Re
publicana, who in solid phalanx have
withstood this enormity to the bitter end.
This party seems to be the great rallying
po st of liberty, and must gain the sym•
pathies of every hater of aggression. They
deserve and will receive immortal honor.

but as it is only tin authority, and not a requi

not grant license fur keeping au inn or tavern
without the notice being published, as required
by law. Thus the people will have the tipper

Court. By th act of 1856 110 person could sell
any kind of liquor for whi2h n licence was re.
quired, until the same was obtained, and put
up in a Iratne under glass at the place of mak.
i lig sales. Should this be neglected the vendor
could at once be returned fur selling without a
heeese. Whilst the Legislature has manifes
ted an intention to continue the requisition of,
;ating up the license in a frame, we foal this
unaccountable proclaim. "It any person shall
neglect or refuse to take out a license within
fifteen days after the same is granted, such ne
glect or refusal shall be deemed a forfeiture of
the license. and such person selling vinous.
spirituous or malt liquors after the expiration
of the fif?een days shall be liable to prosecution
and conviction in peeper Ventrt as fully and el
&dually as s if no such license hail been grun

tute it an applicant can get the grant uf
cense from the Court, which catmot, be refused
if the law is complied with, he can sell with
impunity for fifteen days, without paying one
peony Mr the privilege, and by eh:naming from
subsequent sales, escape conviction. Such a
course can be pursued from year tu year. to the
manifest trans of the Treasury. It the apph
taut wishes to avail himself of fifteen days sa'e
of liquor without payment, he may select
court week or fair in a county town, or a aih
tarp training in the county, and thus have emelt.
MR. EDITOR :
In the last number of your paper, urder the
caption of 'The Poor-House 011ichtls," you odd
as fellows, to wit:—"We have the satisfuction
of informing the tax payers of the county, that
after a good deaf of dodging. these worthies
had to yield beture the firmness of our Court,
which granted the petition fur an investigation
and appointed a Board of Visitors, to examine
into the Poor House affairs."
Unintentional, as I hope, you do injustice in
these remarks to the Court as well as to the
Directors of the Poor. There was on firmness
exercised by the Court, because there was none
needed, and no dodging by the Directors. Be
fore the Court toes I was intrusted to ask fur
the appointment of Visitors, and early in the
term I prepared a petition and submitted it to
the Directors who happened tube in town, when
I was again urged and enjoined not to litil or
forget to present the petitott and have the Vis
itors appointed. As soon as the Jury trials
were over, the Court adjourned on Thursday
evening of the first week until the next Mom
day. Very soon after meeting on Monday
morning of the second week the Court were
busily engaged its Jury trials until late in Pei.
day. Consequently .11 such business as peti
tions, motions and arguments were postponed
until the close of the term. On Friday even
ing very soon after the Jurors were discharged,
I embraced the first proper moment to present
the petition for Visitors, .d the Court the
next morning read off the names of the five
int,Ligent gentleme• whom the had appointed.
And this is the whole story. Yours truly,
April 30th, 1035. D. BLAIR.

of the insurrection. Central India is still trot, blesome, but copilot be called dangerous. The
movements of Sir Hugh Rose, General Roberts
and other commanders, seem to be successful,
and though it is possible that for some months
longer columns nifty be required to sweep the
country, yet it may be said that the rebellion as
a political event is at an end. Such being ti;e
case, the public will learn with satisfaction that
the Commatider4n.Cliief is establishing tram
q uility and confidence in Oede. We learn by
telegraph that Sir Colin Campbell remained at
Luck now, restoring quiet and organizing the
garrison, and also that great efforts are made
to rentssure the population, which had fled in
great numbers to the neighboring villages,—
These proceedings of Sir Colin Campbell are
dictated not only by prudence, but hr simple
considerations of justice. There is no valid
pretence firr treating Oude as anything more
than a conquered country. According to a
treaty made with a former sovereign, and in
consideration of the vices of the late Adminis
tration, Lord Dalhousie annexed the kngdom.

We have no wish to palliate the guilt of the Se

most populous and one of the richest districts
in India will once more taste the blessings of
peace and good government.
