On Thursday evening of last week, Dr.
jA-iri Stevenson and Isaac Parker,
Whoso a rresr we noticed in our last, were
brought back to our Borough by Esquire
Buck and Stewart Lewis, by virtue of a
requisition directed to .them, from Gov
ernor Bigler. Late in the afternoon ol
that day, information was received by
telegraph, that the above named officers
were en route to this placo with the crim
inals, and large crowds of people assem
bled, at the Philipsburg depot and at Es
quire Buck's office, to get a sight of the
Doctor and his accomplice. 'They were
taken to Buck's office and bail demanded
of Stevenson in the sum of $5,000, and
of Parker in the sum of 84,000; and in
default whereof they were committed to
jail. The Justice appointed the 17th of
December tor their Hearing: due was ai-

On Monday afternoon of this week,
one thousand dollars more of the confed

between the leaves ofa book. This 81,-

No further facts havo been developed,

to be for purposes which wo now forbear
to mention. Prom certain letters found
in the Doctor s possession, it is supposed
that he has been engaged in other projects
no less criminal than this-. Ye under
stand that those letters throw some light
upon the manner in which he obtained
those dry goods which he brought, here
and had sold at public auction, last sum

taken in payment of a promissory note
from a man in Pittsburg, Pa. If all the

irrsl of :i Physician.
A man calling himself a pliysician, "by
the name of John K. Seymour, was ar
rested in Xew York, on Saturda', the
3d inst, by Policeman 'Patterson and
Sweemy, of the Lower Police Court,
charged with having, with the aid of his
wife Jane, a professed clairvoyant curer
of diseases, by means of a scheme of the
most infamous nature, defrauded John
K. Stuyvcsant out of a house and lot,
worth from 83,000 to 10,000. TJie fol
lowing is the substance of the affidavit of
Mr. S., on which the charge is bassed ;
Ho swears that in the early part of
the present year, bcmi afiiictcd with se
vere pain in the breast, he was induced
to visit the house of Seymour, then in
Division-street, and subsequently at No
491 Houston-street, for the purpose of
consulting the wife of Seymour, who, by
a sign on the front door, and by cards,
and by words spoken, professed to be a
clairvoyant, and while in that state to be
able to prescribe efficient remedies for the
cure of diseases. That he frequently
visited the house, and for each consulta
tion with Mrs. S., paid her SI, aud for
the medicino she prescribed he paid to
her husband, who procured it, from SI to
S3 per bottle.
That during these visits, Mrs. S., by
her responses and acts, invited liberties
to be taken with her person by him,
gradually and artfully leading him on, as
he now perceives and believes, with the
view and design though ho was not con
scious of it at the time of getting him
rnto such suspicious-and equivocal situa
tions as would enable her and her hus
band who, he believes, was corspiring
with her tor the purpose to extort mo
ney and other property from him.
That on the night of the 19th of May
last he was at the house, when Mrs. S.
informed him that her husband had gone
to Boston; she the ngavc him a night key
to the trout door ot the house, and in
vited him to visit her the next night,
aymg that she would have the servant
out of the way. That on the following
night he visited the house, when she re
peated to him what she had said the
night previous relative to her husband's
absence, and by her 'seductions, advances,
and caresses,' induced him to visit her
sleeping room, and while both were par
tially unrobed, she suddenly gave a sig
nal, by slamming the door three times,
when her husband immediately rushed
into the room with a drawn sword-cane
In his hand, and struck him violently
with it upon the head, and stabbed at
him several times, and threatened to
murder him unless he would pay him
money or its equivalent, and refused to
give him up his clothes until he had con
sented to transfer to him a house and lot
which he owned in Sixteenth strect,which
he subsequently did transfer.
lie further states in his affidavit, that
Mrs. Seymour possesses no such power
of clairvoyance as she professed to have,
but that the business carried on by her
and her husband is the 'practice of gross!
impositions to entrap the unwary and de
fraud them,' and that in this instance
they have conspired together to cheat
and defraud, him, out of his, property, and

Import of the Secretary of War.
This document, states the authorized,

men and officers; but the actual strength,
according to the latest returns, is only
10,417, of hich number 8,378 arc em
ployed in the frontier departments, or
are-now on their way to them. lie says,
further that the measures taken for the
protection of our frontiers have been suc
cessful; that the troops everywhere have
been actively and constantly employed;
that Indian depredations have been com
paratively unfrequent, and, except in
California and Oregon, have not attained
more than a local importance. New posts
are to be established in the Indian coun
try west of the Mississippi, in more favor
able positions, to en&ble the Department
to dispense with a number of the smaller
and less importunt posts. A greater
force is also to be employed for the pro
tection of the emigrants crossing the
plains. A majority of the cases of Indian
depradations in Texas which have come
to the knowledge of the Department, have
been by Indians from Mexican territory.
Mai. General Smith, aided by an cxpen
enced officer of engineers, is selecting sites
for permanent fortifications on the Bio

ment that, as soon as possible, a consid
erable force shall be sent to the Pacific
coast, and one of the Brigadier Generals
of the Army ordered to the command.-
Nine Companies of artillery arc posted in
blorida to aid -the effort now in progress
there to effect the removal of the Indians
Coercive measures are to be used if found
necessary. Two of the regiments of ar
tillery are to be arranged on the Canadi
an frontier and the Atlantic and Gul
coasts, a third on the Bio Grande bound
ary, and a fourth on the Pacific coast.
Of the cavalry regiments, one will be re
quired in Texas, one in New Mexico, and
thc. rcmaining are for the v estcrn fron
tier. A fourth regiment of cavalry is ask
ed of Congress by the Secretary. Three
regiments of infantry are required in Tex
as, besides two on the frontier west of the
Mississippi, one in N. Mexico, and one in
tne Indian country ot the l'acinc. it. is
the purpose of the Department to post the
troops in large bodies at commanding po
sitions, instead of dispersing them among
numerous small posts. In consequence
of the difficulty of keeping the ranks full,
the Secretary proposes 1st an increase
of the present pay of the common soldier;
2d, an additional increase for each sue
cessivc period of five years, so long as he
shall remain in the Army; 3d, provision
for. the promotion to the lowest grades
of commissioned officers of such of the
army as may be found qualified for, and
by their character and services entilted to,
sucn advancement. Also, that every
soldier who, having been honorably dis
charged from the service of the United
States, shall, within ono month thereaf
ter, re-enlisL shall be entitled to two
dollars per month in addition to the or
dinary pay of his grade for the first per
iod of five years after the expiration of
his first enlistment, and a further sum of
one dollar per month for each successive
period of five ycar3, so .long as he shall
remain continuously in the Army. The
Secretary argues elaborately in favor of
the increase 01 the Army.showing the act
ual necessity for such a measure. He
reccommends that tho minimum orgaui
zation of all companies be fixed, as in the
mounted riflemen, at G4 privates, and
that there be added to tho present mili
tary establishment one regiment of drag
oons and two regiments of riflemen,which
would give a minimum organization of
15,528 officers and men, which may be
expanded, if the limit fixed by the law
of June 7th, 1850, be continued, to 17,
411, and on a war establishment, of 128
privates per company, to 27,818, thus
providing for a state of war an effective
yjcrcase of from 10,000 to 12,000 men
without tho creation of new regiments.
Gen. Scott recommends a larger increase.
The Secretary recommends, also, that an
other company of sappers and miners be
added to the engineers corps.

Abstract of i lie Postmaster Gener-!
The whole number of post officds in the
United States at the close of the last offi-j
cial year, June 30th, 1853, was twenty
two thousand three hundred and twenty;
of this number, two hundred and fifty-five
are of the highest class, the postmasters
of which are appointed by the President.
At the present dater 1st December, loJ,
the total number of post offices is twenty-
two thousand six hundred and eigty-cight.
During tho past year, commencing first of
July, 1852, one thousand eight hundred
and nineiy-eight post offices were estab
lished, four hutfllred and seventy-nine
were discounted, and there were appoint
ed to office during the said year, besides
the eighteen hundred and ninety-eight
postmasters to the newly established offi-:
cos aforosaid, thirty-eight hundred and
fifty upon resignation, two hundred and
twenty-five upon death, one huudred and
eighty-two upon change of site, ninety-
one where the postinasser had moved a-
way, and twenty-one on removal of prior
incumbents, being eight thousand five hun
dred postmasters appointed during the
vear ending 20th June. 1853. At the
close of the fiscal year cuding on the 30th
day of June last, there were in operation
within the United States six thousand
sixhundred and ninety-two mail routes:
their aggregate length was two hundred
and forty three miles, and five thousand
five hundred and eighty-three contractors
were employed thereon. J he annual tran
nnrt.-itinn nf the mail on those routes
was sixt' one million eight hundred and
ninety-two thousand five hundred and
forty-two miles; the annual cost thereof
was lour minion iour nunarcu auu muu-
ty fivo thousand nine hundred and sixty
eight dollars, being about seven cents two
mills per mile. Or these sixty-one mil
lion eight hundred and ninety-two thou
sand miles of annual transportation,
twelve million nine hundred and eighty
?ix thousand seven hundred and five miles
arc required to be performed on railroads
at a cost of one million six hundred aud
one thousand three hundred aud twenty
nine dollars; being about twelve cents
three mills per mile. Six million six hun
dred and eighty-five thousand and sixty-
five miles in steamboats, at a cost of six
hundred and thirty two thousand three
hundred and sixty eight dollars; being a-
bout nine cents four mills per mile.
Twenty-one million three hundred and
thirty-thousand three hundred and twen
ty-six miles in coaches, at a cost of one
million two hundred and six thousad nine
hundred and fifty-eight dollars; being a
bout five cents six mills per mile. And
twenty million eight huudred and ninety
thousand four hundred and forty-six
miles in modes not specified, at a costo
one million fifty-five thousand three hun
dred and thirteen dollars; being about
five cents per mile.
The expenditures of the department,
during the late fiscal year, were seven
million nine hundred and eighty-two thou
sand seven hundred and fifty-eight dol
lars. The gross revenue from all sour
ces was five million nine hundred and
forty thousand seven hundred aud twenty
four dollars. It appears from the fore
going statement, that tho gros3 revenue
of the year ending June 30th, 1853 falls
short of expenditures in the sum of two
million forty-two thousand and thirty-one
dollars. Fifteen hundred and seventy-
one thousand dollars of this deficiency
were supplied by balance on the Auditor';
books, on July 1st, 1852 and appropria
tions to supply deficiencies of upwards of
one million dollars, leaving five hundred
and forty-six thousand, dollars to be pro
vided by Congress for the service of the
year ending June 30th, 1853.
