1 tl:irAs requested, we copy the following
from the Harrisburg Chronicle; and respect
fully call the attention of our County Com-
missioners to the same:—
Conaton Scnoot.s.—By the 6th Section
of the act to establish a General Systerri o
Education by Common Schools, it is made
*the duty of the County Commissioners
throughout the State. to reprt to the Secre
tary of the Commonwealth an account of
the proceedings of the delegate meetings
held under this law in their respective coun
ties. We understand that no reports have
been received of the meetings held in No
vember, from the following named counties:
ADAMS, Armstrong, Bed ford, - Berks, But
ler, Cumberland, Columbia, Clearfield,
Crawford, Delaware, Franklin, Greene, Ju
niata, Lebanon, Luzerno, Lycoming, Mer
cer, Pike, Perry, Potter, Somerset, Tioga,
Dnion,Venango,Westmoreland and Wayne.
It is hoped that the Commissioners of
these counties will attend to this duty with
out delay, that the Secretary may be ena
bled to make the report to the Legislature
which the same law requires from him as
Superintendent of the Common Schools.

Geiger called up his resolution for repealing
or suspending the School Law; but the Sen

and Snyder, for the laying of rails on the
pursuance of Mr. McSrinnny's

it appears that the rules adopted by them
relative to persons asking pensions, are the
same as those adopted by the Senate Com
mittee—land which will be found on ttie
first page of to•day's paper, headed "For
Revolutionary Soldieral—with one addi

arisen from the following state of facts: In
many cases where, at former sessions of the

KT - Extract from the late message of Gov.
TAZEWF.LL, to the Legislature of Virginia.
"Millions of the public treasure deposited
where none hut the favored few can tell;
guarded (if guarded at all) by unknown con
devised by the same heads, and
distributed, not in compliance with any pre
scribed rule of late,. but according to the
whims or designs of those who claim the
actual control of it, have contributed to de.
range the circulation, and to corrupt the
currency of the country. The natural effect
of such a state of things must be to impair
the credit ofindividuals,and their confidence
in each other. From this must result the
decline of industry, and the prostration of
usefu! enterprize. Such a condition cannot
continue long in quiet. It is therefore, the
duty of the Government which has caused
it, and which alone possesses the means of
remedying the evil, to undertake its cure
speedily. This task, although probably
more difficult now than formerly; yet pre
sents no insuperable obstacle. Common in
telligence sincerely striving to accomplish
an object required alike by the welfare of
individuals, and the public good, is fully ade
quate to its achievement. Then, let us still
hope, that the imminent peril in which, the
community is placed by the ill-advised acts
and omissions of the Government of the U.
States, will be of but short continuance, now
that their effects have been seen. Never.
theless, if this is suffered still to exist, let
the people and the States continue to bear it
with fortitude, remembering always, that
the time will soon arrive, when they will
have an opportunity to redress themselves in
the regular, orderly and accustomed mode."
THE REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF
WAR, which accompanied the President's
message, is a sensible business paper, but it
has omitted one important item, which in
times like the present, when rumors of war
are afloat, would have been acceptable. It
says not a word upon the actual extent of
our army, but referg to the reports "of the
Major General and of other heads of bu
reaus," which are accessible to very few
readers. In relation to the frauds commit.
ted on the pension fund, the Secretary en
ters into much detail, and intimates his be
lief that they may have been far more ex
tensive than has been generally supposed.
The means resorted to have embraced per
jury, by which official attestations and seals
of courts have been obtained,--the transfer
of seals from one document to another—
and absolute forgery in the preparation of
the whole papers. The extent of these
frauds as far as discovered has almost de
stroyed confidenceltl - the validity of genuine
certificates, and the Secreqry urges an
immediate revision of the laws; so as to pre
vent further impositions.
Upon the subject of the Indians, we are
informed that the Cherokees have not con
sented to migrate to the West—that the
number of Indians of various tribes which
have been removed to the tract of land con
taining upwards of a hundred millions o
acres sat apart by the government as their
permanent residence, is thirty thousand,and
the number yet to be removed in conformity
with existing treaties, fifty thousand. This
extensive body of land which covers an area
of 156,250 square miles, allows nearly two
square miles to each Indian, if the native
tribes of which the number is not given, be
omitted. It is deemed by the Secretary
highly probable, that their proximity to the
native tribes will lead to col:isions with the
latter, and we should also think with one
another, and Indian Wars will probably be
carried on, until the race becomes extinct.
The Cumberland road, east of Wheeling,
will soon be completed, and no additional
appropriation will be required. An in
crease of the number of officers in the En.
-gineer Corps is asked for. A-re-organiza
tion of the Topographical Corps is recom
mended, and its being merged with the Civ:,
it Engineers suggested.
In reference to the Delaware Breakwater,
an important fact as connected with the in
terests of the port of Philadelphia, is brought
into view. It seems that for. some time
past, gradual depositions of sand have been
made in the neighborhood of the work,
which have reduced the depth of the water,
and during the present season, these have
been so extensive in the artificial harbor, as
to have excited serious apprehensions-as to
the result• A thorough examination into
the matter by scientific men was made, but
the substance of the report is not uiven---

THE REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF TIM
NAVY, containing little of importance, save
the annual statistics, we will for the present
content ourselves with a brief account of its
contents. The navy consists of:

and six sloops of war.
In commission, one ship of the line, 4
frigates, eight sloops of war and six schoon

In addition to these, it appears that we
may commence the bnilding of five shies of
the line, eleven frigates, seven sloops of war
and two schooners.
Our vessels in commission during the past
year, have been employed, as heretotbre, in
protecting our commerce in the Mediterra
nean, in the West Indies, on the coast of
Brazil, and in the Pacific Ocean.
Our naval farce consisting of commission
ed and warrant officers, petty officers, sea
men, landsmen and boys, amounts to 6,072;
and our marine corps under its new organi

non-commissioned officers, musicians and

at Boston and Norfolk are fully successful,
and recommends one at New York. It al

of the salaries of commanders on foreign
stations; and the removal of the marine bar
racks out of the Navy Yards. It gives a
statement of the Navy pension fund, its dis
bursements and the number of pensioners;
it informs us that the surveys of the coast
have been delayed by the transfer_of that
duty to the navy department, and asks an
ap:iropriation of $30,000 for its prosecution;

Honest GEORGE KREMER has been nomi
nated by a public meeting of his friends in
Union county, Pa. as a candidate for Gov
ernor of the State, to ho supported by the
faithful instead of Gov. Wolf.
Among the many absurd and disorgani
zing doctrines which "the madness of par.
ty" has recently broached, none appears to
us more repugnant to the dictates of com
mon sense, mid at war with the plain letter
and unquestionable intention of the framers
of the Federal Constitution, than that bold
political heresy which would require a Sen
ator of the United States—elected, uncon
ditionally, for six years, and placed in a po
sition designed to be removed as far as pos
sible from the influence of fluctuating party
ascendancy and intolerance—a position in
which, while they stand peculiarly as the
representatives of the States, they also act
in a great measure as the balance wheel in
the machinery of our government—we say,
it strikes us as utter subversion of the prin
ciples upon which this branch of our politi
cal system was established, and hitherto re
garded, to hold that a Senator is bound to
resign his trust whenever the Legislature of
'is State shall happen to have a majority of
members differing from him on certain po
litical questions—For, were such a principle
allowed to govern, the Senate would be di
yest'ed of its conservative character, be
speedily shorn of its independence, lose its
efficiency as a check upon other departments
of the government, if indeed it should not
be an entirely useless body.[Frank. Whig.
The "Intelligencer" at Harrisbur g is out
decidedly;' in favor of Gen. Harrison , for the
Presidency. His claims are not very ap
parent, thouth his military character may
draw to him considerable support. There
is but one man who can take the vote of
Pennsvlvania out of the hands of the Kitch
en Cabinet, and that is JOHN MCLEAN of
Ohio. H. 6 high moral character, and cor
rect business habits, places him high in the
estimation of the people of this State, and
will ensure to him their support. We are
sorry he is not more of a favorite with the

JOHN QUINCY ADAMS.
It has been stated that Mr. SILSBEE, one
of the U. S. Senators from Massachusetts,
whose term will expire on the 3rd of March,
declines being a candidate for reelection,
and has expressed a determination to retire
from public life. Mr. Silsbee has been a
faithful public servant, and true representa
tive; and, after a long and active term of
service in the public councils of the nation
—should such be his determination—may
retire with honor, and with the esteem and
confidence of his constituents unimpaired.
Under these circumstances, the question of
asuitable successor to Mr. S. in the 'Senate
of tho United States, has como up with con
siderable force among the W higs of Massa
chusetts. And, as mentioned yesterday, a
mong the names most prominently brought
forward with this view, by the public voice,
is that of Jottx QUINCY ADAMS. Other
good men and true have been named for this
exalted trust--but why need we go further?
Taking into account his high personal and
public character, great attainments, long
experience in business, and uncompromising
honesty of heart and.kurpose, under every
change of position and eitcumstance—where
could-old Massacliiii - etts find, among her dis
tinguished hens, a more suitable representa
tive on the floor of the Senate. than John
Quincy Adams? Truly we may say, with
out disparagement to the leading worthies
of that. State, we know of none, in whom
she might confide this trust, with more itn
plicit reliance, for its faithful and able exe
cation. It is not the custom of Missachu •
setts to confide her posts of honor or trust
to incompetent hands. tier choice, there
fire, on this occasion, fall where it may, will
be such as to detract nothing from the dig
nity of her course and character, or from the
value of the example which she sets, in this
connection, to some of her sister States.—
Searching as is the ordeal—prominent to
the view of the Union, as is the Senate of
the United States, we du not fear that the
object of her selection will be•found wanting
to himself or to the State which thus con
fides in him. Yet, we repeat, there is per
haps no one of her list of distinguished men
and tried statesmen, who, reference to
this appointment, would so generally attract
and concentrate the public reg ard, both in
and out of Massachusetts, as he whom we
have above designated. And should the
choice of Massachusetts take. that direction,
it might he assumed with confidence as the
general verdiCt, that she had chosen wisely

tams no one on whom the whole opposition
can or will rally, a position which we mere
ly state, but do not affirm—what is to hin
der the honest men throughout the Union
from uniting upon such a wan as John Quin
eyeams? Is he not honest and capable,
and fitithful to the Constitution?
When the moral epidemic shall disap
pear, which has afflicted our country for
seven years past, and the above questiol a
shall again come up, as guides to the people
in their choice of public functionaries, there
are few men, of all the distinguished of our
land, who need less fear the response, than
Mr. Adams. In the days of Kitchen
net rule, and of col/arum, it would be quite
useless to look towards such men as Mr.
I Adams. And let 11-e issue come when it
may—and whether the rally of the honest
and disinterested is - in tiivor of Mr. A. or of
some other honest statesman, we may he
perfectly assured that the Kitchen Cabinet
and the collar men will oppose him. And
for this plain reason that neither he nor any
other honest and capable man would suit
their purposes! For the same reason, among
others, the PEOPLE OF THE UNION, who
have no tntere•it in the matter,separate from
good and virtuous government, should unite
upon some man known to be honest awl ca
pable, and therefore known to be opposed to
Kitchen Cabinets and collarism. Many
such, we trust, there are. That the PE°.
ME may unite upon one, is our earnest wish.
UNION On their part, is all that is necessary
to success. And we see not why they
might not unite upon Mr. Adams, or some
other well tried statesman, equally honest
and capable.—Baltimore Pat.

that the current of public feeling in Virginia,
is beginning to turn decidedly against the

that a most confident hope of Nlr. Leigh's
re-election increases, instead of diminishes.
CANNL COMMISSIONERS ' Rlll'OßT.—This
document which, following the fashion of the
season is very ; long, was presented to the
Legislature on:be 4th inst. It enters into
a wire-drawn detail of the proceedings of
the past year on the public works, which
includes an extensive list ofdams, aqueducts,
locks and other structures which have
ed, and attempts to gloss over the deficien
cy with apologies which only show that the
agents of the State were ignorant and in
competent. The different lines of canal and
rail-way which were the two last winters
repnrtet neatly - finished, have still not reach
ed the devoutly wished consummation, and
another appropriation of $344,612 is de.
manded to complete them, while $1:25,000
is asked to pay the wages of commissioners,
collectors, engineers and other public sti
pendiaries, and to do new work on old lines
of canal. The repairs will require $200,000
more, and in order to buy locomotive en
gines to get the Rail Roads under way, an
other sum uf 8135,000 is necessary. Such
is the comfiirtable prospect presented to the
Citizens of this State of more - debtirr becon--
tracted on account of this interminable im
proveMent system, which as it now works
by steam, will most probably end in smoke.
INVESTIGATION OF MASONRY.
Mr. STEVENS' resolutions, respecting
Free-Masonry, which were offered in the
House of Representatives, on the 10th of
December, were summarily disposed of by
a vote of 58 to 38. We expected this of
course, from the present Legislature.
.There is but one way of procuring a legis•
dative investigation of Free-Masonry—arid'
it is, the election of Anti-Masons to the leg
islature. Our friends must recollect this on
the 2d Tuesday of next October. Anti- Ma
sons need look for neither justice, nor cour
tesv from a legislature of their enemies.—
Still—alt hough the present legislature will
do nothing—our friends should pour in their
petitions—and either shame or frighten the
hod-carriers and their masters, out of their
high handed course. Sooner ur later, there
must be in Pennsylvania—as there has been
in several other states—an investigation of
that abomination Free-Masoriry.-;--Sun.
MR. STEVENS' RESOLUTIONS.—We beg
leave to call particular attention to the reso
lutions offered by Mr. Stevens in the Legis
lature, which were published in our last pa
per, upon the subject of Free-Masonry. No
honest man of intelligence will pretend to
deny any of the charges contained in the
preamble—and why then should not Mason
ic oaths be abolish - 4d? Why will any party
support an institution like the Masonic? It
appears by the vote upon the printing of the
resolutkins, that the Wolf party have under
taken the particular protection of the insti
tution. We are rejoiced to perceive this,
for it will infallibly break theft) down. No
party can stand with the weight of corrupt
Masonry upon its shoulders.
There are few intellicrent men, who do
not at this time perceire, and many ac
knowledge, that there can be no true free
dorn,esuality and independence in this coml.
try while Masonry exists. It is dangerous
to freedom, and is a monster that must be I
Let every one of our readers examine the
allegations in Mr. Stevens preatnhle, and
see if he believes any one of theta to be
false. They are all true, every one of them,
and they have never been denied under oath.
Will this Wolf Legi.lature refitse to prohib
it such oaths being taken? We shall see.
If they do, it must be the knell of their fu
ture success, for the people are determined
to put an end to Masonry, and all other usur
pations that have exclusive privileges.
That part of the preamble, that relates to
the alliances and treaties with foreign Ma
sons, was proved last winter before the Le
gislature of Massachusetts. This is truly a
subject of alarm to a people jealous of their
Investigation of Masonry.—We
already see evidence of alai in at the pro
gress of public scrutiny. In the last Greens
huro Argus we mid the following remarks
about Mr. &rev e Ns ' Resolution of enquiry.
"The House has however chalked out its
course, and will make short wet kof this
subject, as it even refused to have the r!so
lution printed by a vote 458 to 38." Does
this mean that the 58 Jacksonites who vJted
to prevent enquiry have met in caucus and
have resolved unanimously together that
they will shut their cars against the petitions
of the People? Some of them profess, as the
writer of this article tines explicitly, to
"know nothing about the Masonic institu
tion" and when charges of revolting and
alarming molt are preferred against it, by
men of the highest respectability (and which
no doubt will be pressed for examinati ni by
the voices of tens of thnusands of free honest
citizens) will that Jackson majority have
the profligate impudence to meet and pre
judge the case in secret caucus? and pre
tending to represent the people will they a
gree to tell the people that they will give
them no satisfiction about it? Such a caucus
we hold to be a more abominable and trea
sonable conspiracy than that of Aaron Burr,
and a more dishonorable and dangerous one
than that of La Fitte's gang of pirates at
Barrataria—in short too villainous, and
shameless, and desperate a thing to bo be
lieved in without better evidence.
If the 58 who are, with one exception,
Jacksonites, have not in caucus chalked
their own course, we are to understand the
remark as havine e' a beau ing of far greater
probability, namely, that they have had
their course chalked out for them by the
Masonic emisaries of the kitchen cabinet
who are appointed as their guardians and
managers; and if so we shall Lion see wheth
er they will walk the chalk.
There is no truth perhaps more univer
sally understood, and acted titre' by the peo:
ple, than this, that innocence always seeks
investigation, acd guilt always shuns it.—
Nothing had such a sweepingly deciive ef
fect at the late election ns the Bank ques
tion. The gist of the matter was the appa
rent refusal of investigation; though in reali
ty, it was not a refusal, but only a difficulty
suggested about the manner—a demurrer
raised on account of the rights and interests
of third parties involved; but it was a posi
' tion which the adversaries of the ILA had
the address to Meet, so as to give it the prac
tical effect of a refusal of investigation; and
the million so understood it. The sentiment
it excited was most intense. particularly a
mong the people Cr the country, but it was
universal and irresistible. By none did we
hear it more severely expressed than by
some of the Bank's bust friends. It was a
tornado of reprobation sweeping the land
.Atlantic to the farthest west, and
leaving a memorable lesson forever for those
who might feel disposed to shrink from pub
Another sentiment has spread amon , st
our populatiom, an impression not less in
tense, and not susceptible of change. It is
-a daily ine reasine b -eonv let ion or thee-x t one
wickedness, and continual, extensive, mss
chievous activity of the Masonic institution;
a belief that it is the main fountain of the
official. profligacy • which prevails in every
department of our governments, and in every
section of the country.
This general detestation of Masonry has
been partially diverted from its object in
some places, end suspended in the minds of
many, under the erroneous idea that either
Nlasonry or Anti-Masonry must soon die.—
But let the issue once be fairly made Be
tween them, and such an overwhelming._de
monstrat ion of popular feeling will be given
as never has been witnessed since the Revo
lution. Only let us catch Jacksonism, or
any thing else, identifying itself with Ma
sonry, and laboring to screen it limn exami
nation, and though the scorpion stings of
conscience may nut reach them, the voice of
an outraged, insulted community will.

"We learn that when the jury in the case

were ten for acquittal and two for conviction;

direction of Funks•town, which indicated

now a matter 'of conjecture as to the point
; r um whence the light proceeded; some sup
posed it to he either Sharer's or Clageti's
mill, on the Antietam—others contended
that it was Stonebraker's stack•yard; and
while expectation was on tiptoe, the news
came that it was the extensive Woollen
Factory of the Messrs. Shafer's in Funks
town. Our firementrith their engines re
paired to the spot as speedily as possible, but
nut hi time to save the building; they suc
ceeded, however, in preserving the adjoin.
ing property. The factory anti all its con
tents,(except the books and some wool) were
entirely consumed. It was a fortunate cir
cumstance that there was Lo wind at the
time, for had it been blowing in either direc
tion,• the great probability is that. it would
have swept the saw-mill and grist-mill on the
west, and might have extended far up the
the town on the east. The fire is said to
have originated in the dye-house, a back
building attached•to the factory. In the
preparation of a certain dye, it is reqUisite
that a continual fire be kept up, which ac
counte for the accident happening on Sun
day. We understand that the dyer had not
been at the factory for some time; when he
was last down he stirred up the lire, and
considering all things satit,went tn his board
ing house and retired to bed; indeed, every
thing almost was in flames betbre he was
aware attic circumstance.
This is a serious loss, not only to the pro
prietors, hilt to Washington county; particu
larly to about one-third of the citizens o
Funks town. This establishment alThrded
employment to many indigent families, who
have now scarcely any means orsupport. II
we are correctly informed, nn inventory was
taken a short time ago, of the etThets which
amounted to $18,000; since then nanny im
provements were made and a large quantity
of wool added: the whole loss will not fhil
much short of $25,000. There was no in
surance—the policy having been suffered to
run out about twelve months ago. The
owners are men of great respectability and
weight of character, and distinguished fbr
their laudable enterprize and industry. Nile
sincerely hOpe that meetings will be held in
every town in the county, and contributions
made for their relief.
TRIAL OP JOSEPH O'OONNER.
The Frederick Herald contains a full re•
port of the trial of JOSEPH O ' CoNNCR, for
the murder Of MARY ANN GOWER [former
ly of this place, and then known as Mary
Ann Sprenkle ,] on the night of the 4th of
July last, in that city, from which we gather
the following facts:—That the deceased re
sided in a house of ill fame, in an obscure
part of the town,—that there had been dis
orderly and riotous proceedings at the house
on the evenint , of the 4th of July, and that
a constable ha d'"' dispersed those engaged in
them,—that the prisoner had been there,be
tween whom and the deceased an altercation
arose,—that the deceased left the house a
bout 10 o'clock, and that the prisoner also
left it shortly after, saying that he would be
back again after awhile, and "raise hell,"—
that the house was closed about 11 o'clock,
--that a short time afterwards one of the
initiates got up and admitted the deceased,'
and a man who came with her,—that shout
12 o'clock some person knocked at the door,
and the deceased came downstairs and ask
ed who was there, and the voice answered
"Joe,"—that the deceased opened the door,
when the prisoner entered, seized her by
the arms and pulled her into an adjoining
room,—that they. there disputed and had
scuffle, and the deceased cried "murder"
two or three times, and then said "O'Con
nor don't stab rite,"--that the deceased came
running out of the room, and called to one
of the witnesses (who was in an adjoining
room) and begged him to go for n doctor,
saying that O'Connor had stabbed her and
that she was bleeding to death; she then
fell,—that the prisoner came out of the
room, with a dirk in one hand, and a candle
and a pistol in the other, and going to where
the deceased was lying, said "take that you
bitch!" that the witnesses, who were in an
adjoining room, became alarmed and escap
ed through a back window, and thimce went
to the garret of the next house, from the
window of which they could see into the
passage of the hotthe they had left,,—that
the prisoner put the, candle down and dent
out of the front door, but returned. agairi in
about five minutes, took the candle, went to
the girl, called her by name,'amt told her to
get up; she was dead; he then put the can

the officers immediately went in pursuit of
the prisoner,—that he was found at his
boarding house, in led, appardntly asleep,
-•—and that under his pillow and bolster were
found a loaded pistol, and a dirk with a clot
of fresh blond upon it. Dr. Waters testified
that he did not see the dead body until the
next morning. The wound was about the
eighth rib below the shoulder blade. From
the suflifsed appearance of the countenance,
he judged thilt she had died of strangulation,
by the blood flowing into the lungs, &c. but

seven hours, with a verdict of guilty rf
murder in the eerond degree. The Court
immediately sentenced the prisoner to EIGH
TEEN YEARS imprisonment in the peniten
tiary, eighteen months of which time to be
spent in solitary confinement.
The counsel for the State, were Mr. RAY
MOND, prosecuting attorney, and Mr. F. A.
SCHLEY, appointed by the Court at the sug
f gest ion of Mr. R..— fo r the prisoner, Messrs.
AN Dr. SCHLEY, DIXON and LYNCH. The

upon the testimony or the verdict; but feel
it our duty to say that no similar case tried
in this court elicited. more legal learning
and acumen, or was managed - with such
consummate skill."—Hagerstown Mail.
Considerable excitement has been mani

resolution, (says the Romney, Va. Intelli

has been adopted by the House of Represen.
Resolved, That a Select Committee, eon
sisting of one member from each State, be
appointed, with power to inquire into the ex
pediency of amending the laws relating to
the Military Academy at West Point, in
the State, of New York, or whether it would
not comport with the public interests to a
bolish said institution,.
In the course of a short debate on the
resolution, Mr. Mann, of New York, re
marlted—"He had no doubt that mal•ad•
ministration existed at West Point; as one
evitlence of which, he learned from the offi.
cial reports on that subject, that it costs this
Government between 5 and 6,000 dollars
to educate an officer for the Army of the
United States. Surely such an enormous
expehditure as this for each cadet ought to
be looked into."

as the Committee on Mr. HAWES' resolu. -
tion concerning the Military Academy, viz:

at large into an examination of the condition
of the Bank, and is said to be an able paper.
It was drawn up by Gov. Tyler. On a
motion to print it, Mr. Benton rose, and at
considerable length, controverted the cor

pronounced false. Mr. Tyler replied, and

THE LEGISLATURE.—rIe Legislature
adjourned on Saturday the 20th inst. to
again on the sth ofJanuarv. This practice
of adjourning during the holidays has been
long established, and is now a custom; hut,
we consider its origination as entirely wrong,
and we believe it is unsatisfactory to the
people. This 140 alone, shows the necessi
ty of an amendment to the constitution,
which requires the Legislature to meet on
the first Tuesday of December. If the
meeting took place on the first eflinuarv,
the session would not be of longer continu
ance than it is at present, and an equal a
mount of business would be done—and as
well done as it is now. We learn by letter
that "the Legislature adjourned on Saturday
at 7 o'clock in the morning, and thus no
business was done on this day." "This"
says the intelligent writer, "is one among
the schemes of the present ruling faction, to
swindle the people out of their money, and
draw to their pockets the 'spoils of viCtory.'
Another plan is the getting up of travelling

some thousands of dollars, and for which the
