Another Shocking Mcaui:a. Ilallulays
tntrg, June 22. Another shocking murder
was perpetrated in this county, at Kittanning
Point, on Sunday night. A shoemaker na
med James Robinson, having lost his wife
made preparations to leave for New York
on Monday. Bui on Sunday night, himself
and Utile son, aged three years were cruelly
murdered, while asleep in bed. A man
named William Tracy, had purchased his
shanty and was sleeping np stairs. The
coroner's inquest found that the axe that had
struck the fatal blow, was afterwards used
to batter the door and window. Altogether,
Tracy's evidence was so vague and contra
' dictory thai he was arrested and committed
Appearances are very strong against him.
Robinson was known to possess some four
hundred dollars, and to wrest this pallry sum
from him, himself and poor little innocent
ton were ushered into eternity. J. J.

If republics ire not ungrateful, the Whig
party has pursued systematic course of
ction for the last few years which renders
that term peculiarly applicable to it. Only
four yean have elapsed inc their great
idol, the devoted. patriot, Henry Clay, who
had served the party and borne the storm
of battle from his youth, was trampled
down, nt the Philadelphia slaughter house,
and Gen. Taylor, a man who refused every
pledge and acknowledged no principle of
theirs, was tlevated to their leadership.-
Aeain are we presented with a similar
spectacle'. Webster, the giant of the north
and Fillmore, the pet of the south, are pas

They seem to have a lancy for military
men and the orange plume and gill button

in these bright ornaments ore said to i-xor
cise upon the hearts and eyes of the fairer
sex. Statesmanship, diplomacy, expert

not to be compared to the dashing oir,
proud bearing and fortunate success in war
of Gen. Scott. Of course a man who can
command an army can govern a whole na
tion and the field ond fortress are admira
ble schools in which to educate one in the
civil affairs of his country. At least this is
whia doctrine, and in the course of a few
years we may expect lo find our universi

into military institutions,
Gen. Scott lins been fishing for the presi
dency ever since 181-0 and previous. In
1811 he wrote a very long letter Riving
his views upon all the great and small
questions of the day. That letter show
the skill which old generals acquire, from
habit, of keeping their own counsel. Il is
remarkable for its probity, its egotism and
its obscurity, ond may be regarded a very
lair exponent of the man. He dates his
political principles as far back as 1S0G,
when he was an ardent admirer of Jefler
son, Madison and Monroe. Upon this
broad foundation he builds up his political
life after the same style os children, with
red, white, black and green block?, erect

and varying, each year imbuing his exist

Monday evening. The lightning was vivid
and fearful. The instruments in the tele
graphic station at this place and Northum

which traversed the wires. The small
wires connecting the local with the magnet
oi the register were melted and the magnets
themselves much burned.

ERIE RAIL ROAD
Last week we gave an extract from the
Philadelphia Bulletin, deprecafrog fhe
course of the President of Sunbury and
Erie Company, in attempting to force the
Susquehanna Company off Ihe ground.
The conduct of the former company does
not meet Ihe approbation of any reasonable
man along the line of the road. Il is gen
erally regarded as a specimen of impu
dence and effrontery singularly glaring,
scarcely creditable to any concerned. The
following paragraph from the "Erie Ga
zelle" will show the opinion of the peo
ple at the other end of the State,
"A contest is likplv lo lake ptaee between

This Wat evidently gotten op in view of
the probable selection of Scott who belongs
to that church, as their candidate. It was
gotten up moreover without the slightest

with a recklessness ol truth and decency

Wash-noton. June 10. 1852
C, M. Ham., Esq., Sir : t have received
your letter, informing mc thai the opponents
of (Jen. FRANKLIN PIERCE, tho demoera
tic nominee for Ihe office of President of Ihe
United States, no busily engaged in circula
ting tho sloiy, that he is opposed to the
Catholics, nml in favor of tho Religious Test
that has so lone disgraced the Constitution
of the Slate of New Hampshiie.
So far from there being any Irulh in the
story lo whieh yon allude, tho fact is direct
ly the reverse. I have been personally ac
quainted with (Jen Pirrce for nearly twen-

especially with regard lo Ihe religions test

In connection with this subject il is pro
per for me lo add that the Constitution of
tho Slate of New Hampshire was adopted
in 1783. Since then no change has been
made in that instrument. With the excep
tion of the religious test and property quali
fication touching certain nflices, il is one of
the most thoroughly democratic and libc.ial
constitutions in the Union. When it was
adopted it exceeded in these respects, the
constitutions of most, if not all, of tho other
States. And the two obnoxious features
above al'uded lo, in that instrument, have
lung since become a nullity through the
force of public opinion among the intelli

LETTER rno.M THE EDITOR, DATED 1
Pini.riF.i.riiiA, June Si, 18B8. ,
Tho past week has been another of warm
political excitement and hot weather. The
late Whig Convention at Baltimore was even
more bitter, uproarious, and faction in it
proceedings, than lhat of the democrat.
But thanks, lo providenco and to the good
sense of th American people, Ihn question
is settled, or rather, it has been narrowed to
an issue between (Jen. Pirrceand Gen. Scott.
If many democrats have been disappointed
in setting aside Gen. Cass, tho whigs are In
a similar dilemma, in the nomination of Gen
Scott over such men as Fillmore and Web
sler. It is their availibility on one side
pie is to be masonic or anti-masonic as suits an objection to a candidate for oflice on
particular localities ; for in 1S11 there was account of his religions failh or want of pro-
still an anti-masonic organisation. Since j
that time he has been a strong friend of the
Native Americans, and in his letter to a
St. Patrick association, condemns the na
tive principles and blarney the Irishmen.
How he will stand on the present whig
platform is yet to be seen. It is a field of
battle to which he is little accustomed.
He will find a "fire in the rear" worse
than that he feared from Marcy and hotter
than the "hasty plate of soup" he took on
that memoiable occasion.
He is about as fit to be President as Mr.
Fillmore is to command the army. A greal
soldier, he should have been satisfied with
a position he is qualified to maintain. His
overwhelming vanity has overleaped itself.
A worse defeat awaits that hero than ever
he pave lo Ihe loe. Frank Pierce will
prove a more formidable opponent than
the seried lines of the Mexican infantry.
