William S. Campbell, Esq , Superin
tendent of Allegheny Pcrtage Railroad
has given notice to all persons having
claims against the Commonwealth for
work done on or materials furnished said
road prior to December 1st 1849, to report
them to him immediately at his office at
the Summit The object of this notice is
to have the indebtedness of the State on
that portion of her improvements properly
laid before the next Legislature, in order
that an appropriation sufficiently large
may be made to prevent any further delay
in the liquidation of these claims. The
amount of indebtedness heretofore repor
ted by Superintendents has always been
much too small, and the consequence was
lhat the amount appropiiated by the State
for the purpose of liquidating these claims
has always fallen far below that which
was actually required. This neglect on
the part of Superintendents has occasioned
much disappointment and confusion in the
administration of affairs on the Road, and
Mr. Campbell has vey laudably deter
mined to put an end to it. If a sufficient
amount to cover all indebtedness is net ap
propriated by th next Legislature it will
not be his fault., and those havinsr claims
against the Slate may now rely on the
proper exertions being made to have them
liquidated.

The following is an extract from a letter
of the Washington correspondent of the
Baltimore Sun, published in that paper of

what they may, and the abolitionists and
agitators will speedily find that they have
been "barking up the wrong tree," if they
havs gotten up the present excitement
vith a view of driving the President into
t'leir measures.
The President yesterday gave orders
tor the immediate concentration of the
disposable force of the United States artil
lery and infantry in Boston harbor.
There were some few troops at Fort In

Boston, beven or eighr companies will
be concentrated at Fort Independence
within two days.
This important movement seems to
have been suddenly determined upon,
and in consequence of information received
by the Executive from the United States
Marshal in Boston. To show that it was
not contemplated on Friday, it may be
mentioned that the troops in Florida were
on that day ordered to Texas, but, the
next day, they were ordered to Boston.
.N'ominalion of Judges.
Since the amendment to the Constitu
tion, making the Judges elective, has been
ratified by the papers in such a signal man.
ner, considerable discussion has been going
on among the people as to the manner in
which these Judges shall be nominated.
oome are in lavor of the nominations be
ing made by the Reading Convention at
lhe same time that the candidates for Gov
ernor and Canal Commissioner are nomi
nated, whilst others, and a majority, we
believe, are in favor of calling a special
convention for that purpose. We notice
that the Chairman has called a meet
ing of the Democratic State Central
Committee at M'Kibbens Hotel in Phila
delphia, on the 20th inst., for the prrpose
of having the difficulty settled. For our
part we hope and trust ;hat the Committee
will at once see the propriety and expedi.
ency of calling a special and separate con
vention, and thus keep the nomination of
the Supreme Judges free from the intrigues
and bargains which too frequently take
place at State Conventions.
Mayor Barter.
Joe Barker, the Mayor of Pittsburg,
has been completely beaten in his quarrel
with the city councils laid out as "cool
as a cucumber." Sometime since, Bark
er became dissatisfied with some of the
niembers of the night watch and insisted!
ou their discharge, but the councils re
fused. Joe, determined not to be foiled
in this manner, appointed a night watch
of his own, and the consequence is that,

gives his opinion at length and closes in

But the repeal of the ordinance, author

Most Revl Dear Bishop: Do not J
accuse me of fickleness, for stern necessity
alone compels me to postpone until next
Spring, my contemplated visit to Ciuciu
natti. The early appearance of wintry
weather has produced on my constitution,
enfeebled by "partial paraysis, the same
alarming symptoms that forced me to fly
from the North last fall. I must hasten to
i pj-rida, to escape the cold and
preserve
my health for future exertions in the cause
of Temperance. This pain me exceed
ingly; as I Joo.ked forward with the utmost
anxiety, for the log wished for opportu
nity, to avail mvseli of vour Grace's cher
ished invitation to be vour guest, in the
Queen City ot the West, which welcomed
me immediately ou my arrival to his great
Republic. With a heart afflictei! by this
sad disappointment, I shall take a pasaje

Your Grace's most devoted friend,

Old fashions, they say come new every
seven years; some how or other, knee
breeches don't come around any more.
They say when Gov. Bowdoin reviewed
the troop of Massachuseetts, 1 7S5, he was
dressed in a gray wig, cocked hat, a white
broadcloth coat and waistcoat, red small
clothes, and black silk stockings.
In 1782, Gov. Hancock received his
guests in a red velvet cap, within which

lie wore a blue damask sown, lined with
i w
silk, a white satin embroidered waistcoat
black satin small clothes, white silk stock
ings, and red morocco slippers.
The judges of the supreme court of Mas
sachusetts, as late as 1773, wore robes of
scarlet faced with black velvet; and in
Summer, black silk gowns; gentlemen
wore coats of every variety of color gen
erally the;ape and collar of velvet of a
ditierent celor from the coat.
In 1769, Gen. Washington arrived in
New York from Mount Vernon to assume
the duties of the Presidency. He was
dressed in a full suit of Virginia home spun.
On his arrival in New England, soon af
ter, he vore the old continental unifoim,
except on the Sabbath, when he appeared
in black. -
John Adams, whenVice President wore
a sword, and walked the streets with his
hat under his arm. At his levees, in Phil
adelphia, President Washington was clad
in black velvet; his hair was powdered;
and gathered back in a silk bag; yellow
gloves, Tcnee and shoe buckles, he held in
his hand a cocked hat, ornamented with a
cockade, fringed about an inch deep with
black feathers; a long sword in a white
scabbard, with a polished steel hilt, hung
at his hip.
Nomination and Election of Supreme Judges
The West Chester Republican contains
the following article in regard to the nom
ination of the Supreme Court Judges
which is entitled to consideration, at the
hands of those whom it interests. We
fully endorse the ground taken by the Re
publican, and trust that proper steps 'will
be taken to form a new Convention, to
nominate the Judicial officers. The action
of the Sate Central Committee, of which
Mr. Hickman is Chairman, would be es
sential and decisive.
The people of the State having, by a
decided vote, declared in favor of an elec
tive judiciary, and thus engrafted a pro
vision to that effect upon the Constitution
it will be devolved upon them at the
general election in October 1851, to elect
five persons as Judges to llie Supreme
Court.
That each of the two great political
parties of the Stale, will nominate and run
candidates for the Supreme Bench may be
regarded as certain, and we doubt not that
it is the desire of the mass of both parties,
that the ablest and purest men should be
elected. To secure such men, much may
depeud upon the convention which make

and the more we have reflected upon the
subject, the more firm are we of that con
viction. The ticket to be presented by the De
i c . i 1
mocracy of the State, for the Supreme
Judges should be composed of men who
are not only worthy because ot the purity
and integrity of their political principles,
but also because of their high moral char
acter as men and well established profes
sional qualifications for the arduous, intri
cate, responsible and important duties of
the office. Such a ticket would meet pop-

The Shoemanla.
The circumstances of the arrest of a
young man in Brooklyn, some time since,
for the singular freak of stealing a lady's
shoe which he took forcibly from her
foot, in the street will doubtless be re
membered by our readers. He was the
son of a minister there, and was discharged
on the application of his father, who stated
that the habit of getting ladies shoes and
concealing them, was a mania, to which
he had been addicted from childhood, and
for which he could give no account- He
would often bothei his sisters in that way;
and after his marriage, his wife's shoes
would miraculously disappear, very much
to her astonishment, as she had never been
made acquainted with this singular pecu
liarity of his.
The Detroit Free Press slates, that as a
respectable, well-dressed lady was a few
days since crossing a street, near General
C'ss residence, a man with the appear
ance of a gentleman, grasped her by the
leo-. and threw her down. He then took
off- the icft shoe, but seemed to change his
mind, and ibex took off the right one, and
made off with it doing no other harm.
The shoes were Jiew, tne lady wearing
them for the first tin;e. The man is the
same one who was arretted in Brooklyn.
An Irishman by way of illustrating the
horrors of a solitary confinement, said that
out of one hundred persons sentenced to
endure this punishment for life only fifteen
survived it!
The Eastern papers have a marvellous
6tory about a cat-fish in the Ohio river
swallowing a little negro. 1 here is a slight
mistake about the matter. It was the tie-

The New York Herald, of the 10th
inst., in speaking of the evils of continuing
the slavery agitation, concludes with the
following, which contains some ideas of
very serious consideration. We, however,
cannot think that the fugitive slave law
will ever be resisted or repealed that
the constitution framed by Washington,
Franklin, Mifflin, Morris, &c, will be
nullified, and this Union dissolved on a
question of such comparative insignificance:
But suppose that a union of all the ab
olitionists in the State whigs, democrats,
ana niggers should give Seward a trt
umph. Other States of the North would
follow the example, and the democrats
would not lose the chance of a final and
complete victory. They would, in spite
of everything, become the national party.
The whole South would go with them, to
a man; old issues of tariff, sub-treasury,
&c, would be forgotten entirely; and the
great question slavery would absorb all
other considerations.
The next great point would be he do
ings of the Congress of December, 1852.
That Congress will be elected, .part this
fall, part "next spring, and the rest a year
hence. That Congress will find, when it
assembles, a new state of things. The
slavery question will be the paramount
question till it is permanently settled.
Lverylhing will have to give way to it.
The two parties will then be the Union,
or constitutional party, and the abolitional
part'. 1 he whole South will go with the
former. It may devolve on the Congress
to elect a President, and the hope is that
the constitutional party will be strong
enough to put in a man who will carry
out the will of the people and abide in the
compromises and guarantees of 1789.
This is what the South ask for, and it is
what they will have, or they will be forced
to leave the Union. To this point things
seem now to be tending. Congress has
passed the Fugitive Slave Bill. It was
the only thing the South gained in the
compromise; and this was no real gam.
It only secured to them what the constitu
tion of 1789 had pledged the restoration
of "fugitives held to labor." The Con
stitution liad already bound the free States
to ueliver up every fugitive slave; and had
the compact been truly and honorably
carried out the new bill would have been
unnecessary. But the South felt insecure,
and she wanted an interpretation of the
old contract by living men the men
whose fathers had bound them. The
North gave it; and now, when the South
asks to have this fresh guarantee carried
out, the whole of ihe abolition party rises
en ?nasse, and says :t shall not be done.
lleie is the issue, clear as daylight.
How will it be decided ? Here is the end.
Either the present Congress, at the next
session, will abolish this law, or confirm
it. In the former case, the South might
secede from the Union. She is driven
into a corner where there is no escape.
She knows it she feels it she declares
it and she will do it she has no other
course.
Men of the North, will you sustain the
course of your representatives in the last
session of Congress ? If you will, the
Union is safe; if not, it is gone; and be it
remembered, now the issue is with j'ou,
and on your heads will fall the conse
sequerccs. And when the final question is decided,
and the Union broken up, what will be
the upshot of it on you, your families,
your interests ? Step long enough to ask
yourselves this question. The South will
not war upon you, she will leave you.
And there are your markets, your manu
factures, your commerce, your agriculture,
your rents, investments, your domestic
relations ! Have you measured the extent
of the evil to yourselves and your chil
dren ? Above all have you calculated the
consequences to mankind of the final fail
ure of the only successful attempt ever
made on earth to establish a permanent
basis for the fair fabric of republican insti
tutions? Why did you send up your
lamentations over the fall of Hungarian
freedom, or the destruction of the republic
of Rome 1 And yet what was all this
compared to the final extinction of the
republic at Washington? Look at the
portraits of your ancestors and answer the
question ?
And at last, when the American repub
lic is dead and laid in the grave of the
father of his country when the ruin is all
wrought what will have been the cause
of it all ? What will you have gained
even for the neerro, and on whose heads
will execrations of the oppressed and tor-1
lorn of all nations fall ? The Union will
be broken up, because you violated the.
terms of the original compact, and drove
the South into secession you were led
blindfolded to the perpetration of that
damnable work. And will you have
achieved the emancipation of the slave,
or bettered his condition ? By no means.
Your three millions of Africans are there
still; but cross that line to free them and
the first man of you will be shot. You
have rendered emancipation impossible,
or you have raised a war with races which
will sweep every African on this conti
nent to his grave. Y"ou will have drenched
the free states with blood, too. And yet,
under God Almighty's clear heavens, this
10th day of October, 1850, all this is done
in the name of humanity and religion!
Have vou ever asked yourselves if you
are not attempting to make war on Provi
dence ? Can you not read its design of
mercy td the African race, in bringing
them from tlisir hitherto unmitigated bar
barism, and gradually fitting them for
freedom, and at last to oe instruments oy
which the civilization of the Anglo Saxon
race would finally bo introduced among
two hundred millions o( savages ? Can
you not allow Providence to perfect its
own plan of gradual emancipation in the
southern states, as it has been achieved in
the north ? Does history or human ex
perience show that fanaticism has not yet
worked out any food to the whole race ?
But if you will follow your demagogue
leaders, and hurl this Union to ruin, let us
ask what will become of them when the
ruin is wrought ?, There is but one answer
to this question. If Seward, and Greely,
and Weed, and Benton, and Van Buren,
still persist in urging madly on the mass
of the northern people to the destruction
of the Union, when their dupes awake
them from their delusion, they will drag
their seducers and betrayers through the
streets. No mob is so infuriated as honest
as betrayed men, whose fortunes and fam
ilies have been ruined by demagogue
leaders. Even Robespierre was put to
death by his own followers. There is
nothing that can atone for such calamities
but ;he blocd of their authors.
To this state of tilings events are now
pressing us on. Whether we shall be
hurled into the chasm, will depend entirely
upon the action of the northern people in
their coming elections.
CyThe Rights of Women Convention
at Worcester the other day, is a sourece
of great amusement to many of our cotem
poraries; among whom are several incor
rigible old bachelors. One fellow says
that if women hrve not rights enough,
they manage somehow or other to obtain
power enough. This is intended as a
slap at those hen pecked husbands who
permit wives to do just as they please,
and throw suraT bowls at their liesre lord's
heads if they attempt to interfere. ye
have no doubt that many a poor devil of
a Husband leels luuy convinced of the
power of woman. Whether petticoatery
has any abstract right to make their hus
bands miserable is not considered debata
ble; that man' of them exercise theou?
er is beyond question we speak not from
personal knowledge-, but according to
honest public confessions, made by many
unfortunate married men belonging to the
editorial fraternity.

particularly for that branch known as dry

The only extraordinary circumstance,
however, that marked the proceedings of
the Worcester ladies, was the prosecution
of business without any great exhibition
of excitement.
During the whole sitting, r.ct a cap
was torn; the debate was continued with
out any pulling of hair and not a single
face was scratched or dress disfigured.
Another circumstance worthy to be noted
was the entire absence of babies from the !
con veni-on. i ne assemo;ing cl tnree or
fcur hundred women upon one occasion,
and no babies at all in the assemblage was
remarked, particularly by the reporters
for the press. Their absence accounts
for the orderly manner ia which the bus
iness of the convention was conducted,
and partially explains the secret of the
covention itself. About ninetenths of
tfiese progressive women are old maids
and grass widows without issue; had they
husbands, who could, by exrecising great
pa tience, live with them, they would be
perfectly satisfied with the world as it is;
envy and mortification sting the old things
to the soul, and they are determind to upset
everything, not in the hope of bettering
their own miserable situation, but with
the intention of making others, particu
larly youncr and contented wives, and
fascinating young girls, as miserable as
they are themselves. Nothing disturbs
an envious old maid so much, as to see a
happy young wife and mother, or a hand
some innocent girl who attracts admira
tion by her artlessness and beauty.
