eves became accustomed to it, I saw the en
gine in motion, moving at lijihuiing speed; in
deed with such frightful velocity as almost
lo be invisible. The itnuiense pile of iron
wheels, cylinders and bnra composing the
press were not yet in motion ; but in a moment
saw advancing to the engine, a lorm 1 can
never banish from my memory a tall iihiiqI,
and fleshless ekelctou, tbe white bones glenm-
ing and shining in the light the long. Blen
der fingers working snd twisting the bright,
piercing eyes apart. ling like Jmmonds, uYep
sunken in their sockets, in the horrid skull.
The Pbsnlom Pressman stood before me !
He advanced lo the engine and tried the
fteam-cocks; and as he turned them open, the
immense volumes of slejin rushed torlb in
noire less fury ; and the busy iavs of the
phantom parted in a hasty smile, disclosing,
not the while teelh and red throat of lite, but
yellow and rattling bones. - .
The phantom grinned borrbly,- as if well
pleased with the immense head of stesm now
geiiera'cd in the glowing boiler, and glided si
lently lo tbe lever which connected the en
gine to the press. Tbe lever was pulled noise-
loaly towards linn, and in a seconu uie pon-
deious old press was in motion. The sheets
were ed with appalling velocity; and tbe ma
chine, in its fotwurd and backward course,
seemed fairly-to leap and bound, with a mo
tion almost too rapid for the eye to follow.
The eyes of the skeleton-man danced in the
kull era ill i UK sparks of Ik-hl and fire.
1 stole cautiously up to the Qy-iaule, where
the sheets were piling in a heap es they sprang
from the press, and glanced at Uiem in wonder
and horror. They smoked and steamed as
wet with boiling liquid, and the ink wo of
hlood red eclor. It was the copy of our new
paper; and the type seemed to glare out from
the paper with the brightness of phosphorei
cent light. As I inzed on the terrible appari
tion guiding them in furious speed, it sent
chill of horror to my very marrow. - 1 stepped
softly back to my place near the door, and
watched with suspended breath, while the
gaunt and fleshless fingers of the unearthly
pressman fed in the reeking sheets.
The pile of paper on the feeding board rap-
iJly diminished, and soon was entirely gone.
As tbe last sheet sprang through bis fingers,
the spectre uttered a wild, unearthly howl;
Ihe boiler swsyed end groaned; and suddenly
a oun 4 a of a thousand cannon pierced tb
sir, the boiler had exploded, scattering every
thing in the room in lo fragments, mingling
wheels, levers, Lars, masses of burning coal
and asbes, and scalding steam with the bones
ol the skeleton uscii. . .
. When I awoke from my horrid dream;
found myself sitting in my chair, with broad
daylight peeping in at the windows, and the
Workmen standing by bugbing at my frighten
v I had fallen asleep, and slept till their re
turn, and the hissing of the steam I hod heard
was occasioned by one of (he slokera al
furnace in tbe "Old Pjes room.".
THE LOVER'S LEAP—BY PROXY.
In Merrick's History of Haverhill, tbe fol
lowing story is giving as a hiMoricat fact. . One
Jnceph Wbiiialier, who was quartered in the
carrison of that town in its early settlement,
had become smitten wiili the charms of one
Mnry W , residing there. Long had
Wished to declare bis passion to her, but bod
not the courage. At length Joseph nerved
linnkingcouraget anii,wilh a nolpilating hear:
snd in broken accents, made a declaration
Ins love, and' closed h harangue by offering
hi? heart snd hand. . Mary heard his story very
attentively, and then flatly refused to have
enyiliing to do with htm. .
What a hard-bearied creature! Joseph was
somewhat staggered at so prompt a denial,
determined uoUo suffer her lo escape so easily.
He pleaded his case nioslmmlully; but rt
all in vain she remained stubborn ana hard
learieds f first. As a lost resource, he told
her that if she would not accept hii offer,
would "no and jump into the' well.7 This
was truly a desperate resolution; but it bad
effect on the cruel heart cf the maiden
s'jll persisted in her refusal.- Joseph then arose
probobly from a kneeling posture ami cast
ing a long mid lingering look on the unfeeling
gift, left ipe garrison. , lie went to ihe well
and looking imo "the deep and dark abyss
anxiously welched the matter before he look
the Dual leap. It wos a stem resolve
Ihmiclil of it earnestly he wovered, and
last determined not to throw away his life
such a bard-hearted creature. . While "cast
in; himself about" to sen bow he could
cape from this sad dilemma, and still pn-serve
some appearance of having done the i;eed,
new idea btppily flashed acioss his cranium
A Urge log wa lying near, which be resolved
should be Joseph to jump into the well, instead
of himself. Boon as ihe commemiobie determination
was formed, heseized theloff, plung
ed il i m o ihe "watery deep," and immediately
concealed himself behind the curb . 1 .
But where waa Mary all this while?
had been listening ottenlively at the door,
sorry that she iad denied him so long,
hardly believed thai he would commit so rash
an act,. Hut when she heaitl tbe '-envy plunge
of wooden Joseph, her heart completely relen
ted, and ohl how fervently she then wished
thaLihe had not refused bis offer. She hastily
ran lo the well, and bending over the curb,
wiib an aeouized heart, exclaimed "Ohl
seph, Joseph! if you are in the land of the
ing I will have you." Joseph saw and heard
Ihe whole, and his heart leaped for gladness
at tbil intelligence immediately leaving
place of Ins concealment, he rushed into
arms, , exclaiming, "Ohl Mary Msry! I
lake you at your word!?

FREMONT NOT ELIGIBLE TO THE PRESIDENTIAL
It seems by Uie following article from the
New York Ejpret that Here exists a strong
probability that Fremont was not born in the
United Slate;, and, therefore, is not constitu
tionally eligible to- the Presidency. . Wt if
rite attention lo Ibo article in tbe E.ifi';s,
which soys: "'
"'u- uk Fhkmont wa Bon. We need not
beg pardon ol the public for freely discu.ssii
where rremonl was boru, because, under the
Constitution of the United Slates, a man must
be born l ere, in these United States, or have
been here when the Constitution was adopted,
in order to be its Piesident. Hence, if, as al
leged, and as believed by many, and 03 eir
cuuuUiuces imUcate, the French fc'.ber of
Colonel i'reiBonttook the mother of Colonel
Fremont ont of the United States, with the,
intent to live abroad, the son born abroad is
Conkliiutionally disqualified for .being I'rcsi-
ueni. . .
"The Biocrspby of Mr. Bicelow. feditorof
(he Evening Post,) the inspiration, doubtless,
of Fiemout himself, has now reached Hicb-
mond, va,, ond os we suspecled, nearly all of
it thai relates to Fremont's origin is fiction, or,
lo quote the iiichmond Dispatch t
It rends like a novel. It is quite desti
tute of such a prosaio element as fact. The
Lrgitluturt of Virginia never tanctloncd the
uvaruliun ot Mr. und Mrs. Prior iu vatsiwr an
act of uicorce. We have examined the acts of
Assembly Horn 1810 to 1817, (Fremont was
born, according to his biotrnpher, January 21.
mii,) and in all that time there were but two
divorces granted, neither of which was Mr.
snd Mr. Prior.
'"We know nothing of tbe circumstances
of their marrioge. We never heard thai the
old genltemou was rich or gouty. He kept
sort of pleasure garden for public entertain
ment, which is not consistent with the idea
being a nabob. In short, we know the divorce
part of tlieaucvu story is untrue, and we don't
believe one word or the remainder of it. We
only allude to the object to vindicate the truib
of history, and do justice to the Slote and in
dividuals, unjustly assailed in Ibe above par
agraph. . ,
'We were certain at the start, tbat an old
staid Mate like Virginia never divorced parties
for the reasons given in tbe biography, that
the parties had 'influential friends.' The
act of Assembly disclose tfe fact, and slump
Hit lie on the biography.' . ,
"The Bicbmond Whig publishes the wilt
and testament of Pryor, to show that no such
divorce at alleged took place. The will reads
thus, as recorded in the Hustings Court, 1UZ3
'"I, John Pryer, of of the city of Richmond
do make and ordain this writing as and for
last will and testament, hereby expressly re
voking all other wills end testaments hereto
fore made by me. Whereas, under a well
foundej impression nnd conSJent belief thai
my late, wile, Ann Pryor, had departed this
life, I have intermarried with Elizabeth Groves
who laone is recognized by me as my wife,
none other having any just claims upon me
my estates, in that character, I do will and di
rect as follows.' 1
"He marries because hs believes his lale
wife was dead ! The father Fremont, accoid
ing lo tbe biography, was wandering with the
mother of Fremont among the Indians of
Southwest according lo our Vermont corres
pondent, among the French Canadians but,
according to the Kichmond Whig, the father
fled with hi wile to France! -Now, where
his son was born we have a right to know
proof unquestionable, for every presumption
is against his being born in the Uuiled States.
"These are painful facts to approach and
discuss, but when such a monstrous imposition
is attempted as this upon us Northern people,
we shrink not from it. It is a duty we owe
our country and toQod, and we will discharge
it fearlessly in the midst of every storm, and
the more fearlessly the fiercer is the abuse
threat. It is not true that ihe mother of Col.
Fremont was divorced. It it not a fact iat
teas born m Suvunah or Charleston us, alleged:
or if il is, it can be proved. It is a fact that
the frenchman connected with the mother
Fremont lert Richmond Mo wander,', some
where but where we do not know.
. "Now, gentleman, it is of no use to abuse
us, but meet our facts. To tell ns 'e lie,'
will not lie down the will of Colonel Pryor
the Richmond legislative record, that no di
vorce was obtained. To tel! us bis birth-place
is not a matter of proper discussion, is to
in tbe very face of the Constitution of
United State 1 for il is our constitutional
riiibt to know beyond all cavil where a candi
dale for the Presidency of .Mm. United Stales
was born." , : . r

Why Adopted [...] should not Support
To Editors of the Pennsylvanian:
Gentlemen : The undcraiirned who is one
of the plain citizens of your city, and does not
desire to be idem tired witn any political or
party excitements, takes the liberty of addres
sing lo you ibis note on a subject somewhat
connected wiib p 'lilies, and the rights of s
large c!ass of our Mlow citizens. His reasons
fordoing this are that he bos undeistood thai
bis name is pretty well known among that
class, and that a porty now seeking power is
attempting, by the wo of bis nnme, and oth
erwise, 10 obtain their vote in this State.
The Fremont Clubs of New York, I hove
reosotu to believe, have their agents now at
,i the Welch. German, o'd olbcra
of the ro cal ed foreign citizens, disncii,i,lin'j
documents, holding private and public meet

With these views, I as a decendant of the
Welch people, have .been invited to use my
influence to induce them 10 vote lor f reoiont
Now, sir, my reply to these gentlemen was,
and is this. I am ss, ready as any man to give
fieedom to the negro in Ibe South, in a proper
way, but I Hunk Hint freedom should lirst be
obtained for my countrymen, while men, in
the North. It spptars to me to be a superla
live stretchof philanthropy, for persons to go
all the way to the .Southern Slates to secure
the liberty of the Ufrican, when it is well
known that no foreigner has any freedom io
The freedom of the slave, or rather tbe elec
tion cf Mr. Fremont, cannot 'oke place with
out the combinaiion of ibe Freesoil with the
Know Noihinn vote. Thtl combination is ab
solutely necesssty. Whkt is the result f
Fremont is elected by the union of two par
ties. The Know Nothing; would dislranchise
and con do it to a great t-a tent,) his brother,
the foreigner. The instant power was placed
in his hands, hit interes) 'Would lead him to

In the language of Kufus Choaie, one of our

HENRY CLAY ON THE ABOLITION QUESTION.

That portion of our community who think
that any good, either to (he while -or btack
rojje, enn come from Ihe political agitation ol
the subjpct of slavery in Ihe free btsles, ore
invited to peruse the. following extrnct from
Henry Cloy's great speech on the Abolition
question, delivered 111 the United States Sen
ate a lew years tzu. it is 10 as a matter 01
surprise Ihot so larfte a portion of tbe admir
ers of the gfent Kenluckion, and who so many
years sustained the principles enunciated by
him, should so soon after his death consent to
be tranBlerred, by the management of political
lenders, over to ihesustoimngorthe Abolition
and disunion doctrines of the miscalled Re
publican party, Upon this question of s Unit
ed Slo'es Bank, Tariff, andolh.u. we differed
Irom Mr. Clay, but these questions are dispo
sed of, and are not now an issue. On the
slavery question he took ttie true ground.
Though no friend of slavery he took the na
tional and atalesinan-like viewof ide question.

I om, Mr. President, no friend of slavery.
The Searcher of all hearts knows that every
pulsation of my heart bents high 111 the cause
of liberty. - Weenever il is safe and practice
ble, I desire to sea every portion of the hu
man family in ihe enjoyment of it. But I pro
fer the liberty of my own country, and the
liberty of my own race to that of any other
They lbe Abolitionists) instead of advan
cing the cause of emancipation, hove thrown
back for half a century the prospects of any
species of eman -.pa I ion of the African race,
gradual or immediate, in any of the States.
The minority (Colonizntionists) bad increased
and was increasing until tbe Abolitionists com
menced tbeir onerations.
The people became alarmed and shocked by
these Abolition movements, ond tha number
who would now favor gradual emancipation is
probably less than it was in the year 1798 9.
Prior to the agitation of this question of Ab
olitionism, there was a progressive ameliora
tion in the condition -of slavea throughout all
tbe slave States. '
It is frequently asked, what ia to become of
the African race among usf The true an
swer is, that tbe same Providence that has
hitherto guided and governed ua ond averted
all serious evil from the existing relation be
tween the two icps, will (aide and govern
our posterity. -
Do not they the Abolitionists perceive
that in confounding all distinctions which God
has made between the two races, they ar
raign tbe wisdom and goodness of Provi
Does any man suppose the two races would
become bleuded in one homogenious mass!
Does any man recommend amalgamation, that
revolting admixture, alike offensive lo God
and man ?
If the amelioration of the condition of the
slave has been checked in some of tbe States,
the lesjmnsibilily musl attach to Ihe unfortu
nate agitation of the subject of Abolition.
With them the rights of property aro nothing;
civil war, a dissolution of the Union, and the
overthrow of the government io which are
concentrated the fond hopes of tbe civilized
world, ate noihing. A single idea has taken
possession of their mind, and onward they pur
sue it, overlooking all barriers. With this
clasp, Ihe immediate abolition of slavery in the
DisUict of Columbia, and the Territory of
Florida, the prohibition of the removal of slaves
from Slate lo State, comprising within its lim
its the institution of domestic slavery among
other and more lamentable rreaus they em
ploy, of orruying one ponion against another
ale man in the country lo pause and deliber-
.111.11.. wn fl . !..! . In .n
portion of the Union. With that view, ia all
their leading prints and publications, the al
leged horrors of slavery are depicted in Ihe
most clowing and exaetrcrated colors, to excite
the imagina ion and stimuluie the rage of the
people 10 the free states ogatijsl the people in
ihe slave Stoles. '
Adverlisemen Is of fugitive slaves and slaves
to be sold, are collected and blazoned forth lo
infuse a spii it of detestation and hatred against
one entire section, and like another notorious
ogilalor upon another theatre, they would hunt
down and proscribe froir, the pale of civilized
society tbe inhabitants of that entire section.
It is at this alarming stage of their proceed

down winch Ihey would hurry us. '
To the ogency of their powers of persuasion
they now propose to subslitlue the powers of
tbe ballot-box, and he must be blind to what

that the inevitable tendency of their proceed

"The Constitution as it is."
In the year 1854, during the debate on the
admission of Texas, Mr. Buchanan snoke a "
follows: ' ' '
In reviewing the humble part which I
ave taken in public affairs, during a period
not now short, there is nothing which I can
review with more pleasure than the course I ,
sve pursued on the subiectol slavery. When
I first come Into the Senote I found ihe aboli
tion excitement much more violent than ilia at
present. The mails were then loaded with , .
pictorial representations calculated to, arouse . ,
the passions of the slave and excita liinpj to
vengence. Tbe danger of servile insurrection 1
was imminent. ' Those engaged In the agita
tion believed they were doing God seivice
Honest fnnstacism, in the history of our race
has done as much evil and seed a much hu-
man blood as any olbcr cause. The agitation .
threatened tho existence of the Union. It
could not be supposed tbat fathers and moth- '
era who went to bed trembling at night lest
thuirmnns ons mignt be involved in flames ,
before the morning, and all the horrors of ser-
lie insurrection might be their fate, would ,
lour cling to a Union with a people which
encouraged such enormities. Self preserve- '
tion is the first law of nalitre, apd above all 1
"Surrounded by these circumstances, I took ,
my stand on (his question, from which I have
neversince departed. Under the constitution,
the Southern Stales have rights guaranteed to
them, and these rights I determined lo main
tain, come weal, come wo. 1 determined that '
I would never risk tbe blessings of Ibis glori
ous confederacy, with alt the benefits it holds
out, not only to ourselves, but to the Kholp,
human race, lor me sane 01 unavailing philan

entitled 10 protection as those of any portion

'I stand by the constitution as it is. and, to

"Before Ihe lata! agitation of abolition troce.
his happy event, (gradual emancipation,) in.
several pf the States, was approaching iu( -
eonsumation. The current of public ppinioo,
was ruuning strongly in that direction. In the '
house of delegates in Virginia, the grandson
of Mr. Jefferson bad introduced a proposition -having
in view general emancipation, which.
if my memory serves me, was lost by a single
vote. The abolition excitement at once put an
end tp these bright prospects.
