Thursday Evening. Jane 8, 1834
Alexander Hamilton on the Powers or
the Government! It has often boon in
timated by politicians not familial with the
early history of the country,- that Gen.
Alexander Hamilton was an advocate of a
strong Government, and favored the idea
of a President for life. This imputation is
occasionally repaa'.ed with an air of confi
donco which gives it credence- with the
multitude. But the chargo was controvert
ed in a positive manner mora than fifty
years ago by the distinguished Salesman
himself. A letter to Timothy Pickering,
first published in 1812, is of sufficient in-
tercst to be reproduced at this time:
New York, Sept. 16, 1803.
Mr Dear Sir: I will make no apology
for my delay in answering your inquiry
some time since made, because I could
offer none which would satisfy myself. I
pray you only to believe that it proceeded
from anything rather than from want of re
ppect or regard. I shall now comply with
The highest-toned propositions which 1
made in the Convention were for a Presi
dent, Senate, and Judges during good be
havior House of Represents. ives tor throe
years. Though I would have enlarged the
legislative power of tho Ganoral Govern
ment, yet I never contemplated the abo
lition of the State Governments; but, on
, the contrary, thoy were in some particulars,
constituent parts of my plan. r
This plan was, in my conception con
formable with the strict theory of a Gov
ernment parery republican; the essential
critciia of which are, that the principal or
. puns of the citecative and legislative depart
ments be elected by the people, and hold
ttlie pfficos ky a responsible and temporary
or defcisible nature.
A vote was taken on tlie proposition re
specting the exocutlve. Five States were
in favor of it among these Virginia; and
though, from the manner of voting by del
egations, Individuals were not distinguish
ed, it was morally certain from tho known
situation of tho Virginia members (six in
mumber, two ofihcm, Mason and Randolph,
professing popular doctrines) that Madison
must have concurred in the vote of Virgin
ia. Thus, if I sinned against republican
ism, Mr. Madison is not less guilty.
I may truly, then, say that I never pro
posed either a President or Sonata for life;
and that' I neither recommended nor mc li-
tated the annihilation of the Slate Govern
And I may add that, in a courso of the
discussions in the Convention, neither the
propositions thrown out for debate, nor
even those who voted in tho earlier stages
of deliberation, were considered as eviden
ces of a definitive opinion in trio proposer
or voter. It appeared to bo in somo sort
understood that, with a view to free hives
tigation; experimental propositions might
bo made, which were to bo received mere-
ly as suggestions for consideration. Ac
cordingly, it is is a fact that my final opin
ion was against an Executive during good
behavior, on account of tho increased dan
cer to the public tranquility incident to
tho election of a magistrate of his degree of
-r , 1 f rm ,t, i'
pcrmanoncy. tin the plan oi a onsuiunon
which I drew up while tho Convention was
sitting, and which I communicated to Mr.
Madison about tho close of it, perhaps a
day or two after, tho office of President has
no longer duration than for thrco years.
This plan was predicated upon those
ibases: 1 . That the political principles of the
- rwople of this country would endure noth
ing but a Republican Government. 2
That in tho ac.tual situation of the country it
was itself right and .proper the republican
theory should have a full and fair trial. 3.
, That to such, a trial it was essential that tho
Government should be so constructed as to
give it all the energy and the stability re
ooncileable with the principles ef that theo
ry. Theso were the genuine sentiments
of my heart, and upon them I then acted.
I sincerely hope that it may not here
after be discovered that, through. ..want of
-sufficient attention to the last idea, tho ex
perimont of Republican Government, even

A Touching Incident.-I wont one night
to see a comedy. The chief actor was a
favorite -one and the theatre was very
crowded. The curtain drew op and a
midst a burst of applause the hero of the
pieco made his appearance. Ho had hard
ly uttered twenty words when it struck me
that something strange was the matter with
him. Tho play was a boisterous comedy
of tho old school, and required considerable
spirit and vivacity in the actors to sustain it
properly; but in this man there was none;
he walked and talked like a person in a
dream; his best points lie passed over with
out appearing to perceive them; and alto
gether he appeared quite unfitted for the
part. His smile was ghastly, his laugh
hollow and unnatural; and frequently he
would stop suddenly in his speech and let
his eye wander vacantly over the audi
ence. Even when, in his character of a silly
husband, he had to suDer" -himself to be
kicked about tho stage by the young rake
of tho comedy, and afterwards to behold
that careloss individual making love to Ins
wife, and eating his supper while ho was
shut up in a closet from whence he could
not emerge, his contortions ot ludicrous
wrath, which had never before failed to
call down plenty of applause, were now
such dismal attempts to portray the passion
that hisses wero audiblo in various parts of
tho theatre. Tho audience were fairly out
of temper; and several inquisitive individ
uals were particular in their inquires as to
the extent of tho of potations he had in
dulged in that evening. A storm of sivil-
ation and abuse now fell round tho ears of
the devoted actor; and not content with
verbal insult, orange-peel and apples flew
upon the stage.
Ho stopped and turned to tho shouting
crowd. I never saw suchmisery inhuman
countenance. His face was worn and hag
gard, and large tears rolled down over his
painted cheeks, i saw his Hps quivering
with inward agony 1 saw Ins boson heave
with convulsions of suppressed emotion,
and his whole mien betokened such depth
of anguish and distress, that the most ruth
less heart must have . throbbed with pity.
Tho audience was moved, and by degrees
tho clamor of invective subsided into a sol
emn silence, while ho stood near the foot-
ights, a picture of dejection. When all
was calm, he spoke, and in a voico brokon
with sobs that seemed to rend his bosom,
proceeded to offer his explanation.
"Ladic3 and gentlemen," said he,
'though in my acting to-night I am con
scious of meriting your displeasurc.in one
thing you do mo. wrong. I am not intoxi
cated. Emotion alone, and that of the
most painful kind, has caused me to fulfil
my allotted part so badly my wife died
but a few short hours ago,' and I left her
side to fulfil my unavoidable engagement
here. If I have not pleased you, 1 implore
of you to forgive mo. I loved hor, grieve
tor hor, and if misery and anguish can ex
cuse a fault, I boar my apology here."
Ho placed his hand npon his heart, and
stoppod. and a burst of tears rolieved his
momentary paroxysm of grief.
The audience was thoroughly attccted,
and an honest burst of sympathy made tho
walls tremble. Women wept . loudly, and
strong men silently; and during the re
mainder of tho evening his performance
was scarcely audible, thro tho storm ot ap
plause by which the crowd sought to soothe
the poDr fellow's wounded feelings. There
w.n something very melancholy in the
thou 'lit of that wretched man's coming
from the bed of death to doa gay attiro and
utter studied witticisms for tho amusement
of a crowd, not one of whom dreamed of
t.lm nnrrnisli flint lnv fostering under the
painted cheek and stage smile. And in the
groat theatre of life, how many are there
around us like that poor actor, smiling gaily
at the multitude, while at homo lies sorrow,
whose shadow is ever present with them
in busy places. Ex.

From tha Cincinnati Commercial.
Railroad Excuriion to Lancaster.
The pleasautest excursion of the seasop
was made by a party of thirty of our prom
inent business men and bv the officers of
the Company, over tho Cincinnati, Wil
mington and anesvilie Kailroad. I be
particulars of the grand opening festival at
Lancaster in the spring wero given in the
Daily Commercial of the following morn
ing; that was a splendid affair, but the cit
izens of Lancaster and gentlemen connect
ed with the road, desired an opportunity
of forming a more intimate acquaintance
with the business men at this terminus ot
the road, and also desired more time to ex
hibit the marvellously beautiful suburbs of
their thriving town.
On Tuesday morning a party of gentle
men, among whom we recollect the follow-

Lancaster, in accordance with invitations

Its prominent characteristics are light
grades, a remarkably straight line, a coun
try fertile and rich, almost Doyona calcula
tion, and, on the Eeastorn section, mineral
resourees immediately upon the line, that
may yet entitle it to the appellation of the
"col road," though but little has been
published on tho subject. Superior ma

Mount Pleasant or-Standing Stone as
it was more properly named by the Wyan-
dots, is a point in American scenery that
will attract more and more attention as the
facilities for reaching it are multiplied and
the pen of the tourist or the pencil ot the
artist bears its fame abroad. As the Duke
of Saxe Weimar remarked while -standing
on the curious tumult that crowns its sum

there can be nothing more beautiful." So
will all exclaim. From tho beautiful Hock-
inn- valley this -remarkable rock rises some
two hundred foot, presenting en tho Lan

town lies in a grand ampitheatre of lofiy
hills that rises as if reluctant to leave so
sweet a valley so gradually from the plain
that a thousand desirable sites for country

grand circle, from the midst of the val

of Mount Pleasant, like the throne-founda-

the loveliest panorama in all the hunting

On the Mount, Governor Medill intro
duced the party to Gen. Sanderson, who
stood admiringly on the same spot fifty
five years ago. General Sanderson is a
character. Entitled to the honors of an
Octogenarian, he claims no exemptions for

A Novel Case. We heard yesterday
of a singular case, which, unless it is am-
iacably adjusted, will come bofore one of
our Courts in a few days. I he circumstan
ces, as related to us, are as follows: About
six years ago, a gentleman from this city
loft for California Juaving behind hima wife,
and a lot in the western part of this city,
In two years afterwards, the wife re
ceived the intelligence of the death of her
husband. Within eighteen months, she
married the second time, and afterwards
disposed of tho ptopcrty lot, in order to set
her husband up in 'retail business, and thus
far they have lived happily together, and
succeeded in making money off the lot. But
to the astonishment of all, the first husband
returned homo within the last two weeks,
alivo and hearty as over, but poorer in
worldly stores than when he left lor theau
rifreous regions. ' It appears that there
port of his decease was occasioned by the
dealh of a person of the same name, which
eport' reached thdwifo through the news
papers. The nrst husband had remained
only a year or two 'in California, and mi
grated to the Sandwich Islands, where ill
luck befel him, and in consequence there
of, ho neglected writing to his better half.
Finding how affairs are now.the first hus
band seems desirous of regaining his prop
erty. Thus tho matter now stands, and
unless a compromise is offected between
the paatics, the law will have to test the
merits of it. UtnetnnaU Commercial.
The Way it is to be Done! A vounor
man formerly in our employ, in whose vc
racity wo have all confidence, informs us
that while at St. Louis a few days since,
he saw a number of gangs of slaves en route
for Nebraska, under charge of their own
ers. This is the way in which Nebraska
and Knsas are to be made slave territories.
Their contiguity to the 6lave states of Mis
souri and Arkansas makes it a very easy
matter for slaveholders to go with their
slaves, while their remoteness from the
principal points of emigration in the north
offers obstacles to their speedy settlement
by northern freemen, a. he appointment o
slaveholding otneers lor tne territories will ,then th0 60iemnbeat of the muffled drum
be immediately followed by the election of! as iftilc(iead Were nigh, and then stream -
a slaveholding council, in each, and slavery
will be established and regulated by terri
torial law. "Squatter sovereignty" is so
fully defined and recognized that the laws
of the territories cannot bo submitted to
Congress for revision, and as the last act in
the Nebraska tragedy, slavery is establish
ed in Nebraska and Kaiisas territories be
yond the hope of eradication. Washtenaw
California Wheat Crop. It is appre
hended in California that the wheat crop of
tho State this year, will be too large for the
mills to be able to grind it all. Breadstuff's,
the papers say, will henceforward be cheap,
and the money now sent to Chili a the east
to buy flour will be retained in the country;
thus, while the price of provisions will be
low, money will be plentiful. They fur
ther say that flour will coon be exported

The Express of yesterday tays:
Nicholas Danc.the supposed murder, was
captured yesterday. (Moudry) morning, at
about ten o'clock. He was found lying
partially covered up, among some brush

It is supposed that Dane, finding himself
hard pursued by pursuers, endeavored in
this muniier to chide discovery and that
afraid, after all, that discovery wu certain,
attempted to shorten his miserable
ence, by adding suicide to murder.
Leaves and bushes had been accumulat
ed in heaps at the spot where he was fuund.
It is probable that the party in pursuit would
have passed by the murdeicr and his hid

truding from the rubbish.
As soon as the murderer was drawn out
from his lair, he was conveyed to a wagon
near by, and
driven off to a barn, a short
Two physicians Drs. Lord
and Tucker were in attendance, and here
made an examination of Dane's wounds.
It was found that the apple of his throat
was badly cut, while Iwo deep incisions had
been made on his windpipe. A Mr. Joseph
Oorbyn, one ot the party took Ins hand
kerchief and thd it around his neck, to
staunch the wounds. ' Bleeding soon stop

the opinion prevailed that the wretched
man would recover.
Dane seemed conscious enough of his
awful condition, and the proceedings all
around him, but not a syllable or a whis -

by her relatives, to bs pjliihed up and fit

there was a certain freshness, a beauty a

She had, that morning received her first

as she laid her innocent head upon the pil
low that night. Could she have followed
her bouquet to the place of its destination,
and seen the sunshine it brought in that
humble- abode, she would have dismissed
her anxieties. Whea the aged grandmoth
er first saw the bouquet, she streched forth
her withered hands to take it, with an
exclamation of joy; but as soon as she saw
how rare a one it was, she ahook her head
saying 'Ah, Susan, you mu3thave spent all
your earnings for this! You should not

it was a present to you from the young la
dy who is staying at Mr. F 'e.
' 'How very kind of her! Tell her I will
breathe a prayer for her over each bud and
flower of her swet present;' and the old
wman turned her bouquet round and round
admiring the colors and seeming refreshed
and cheered by their odor.
She declared that they made her feel
twenty years younger, wid that shej could
almost fancy herself back again in the lit
tle white cottage, standing in the midst of
a flower-garden which she "had taken so
much .pleasure in cultivating.
'There were no such rose within twenty
miles of ui, she said ; and then she went in
to a full description of each variety; what
difficulty she had in obtaining it; how anx
iously she bad watched it, lest u should
not grow; and how proud she felt when all
her neighbors stopped to admire the first
roses it bore!
MeanwViIe, Susan diligently, plied her
needle, while a greatful feeling stole over
her, that the usual petulance of ageand sick
ness had been so pleasantly dispelled.
The next morning, as Mr. T. was pass
ing along the street, his old friend Dr. M.
greeted him with, Where have you been
hiding yourself, young man? I have been
wishing to meet you for the last two weeks.
Come with me, sad let us have a little chat
if you are not engaged.'
'Entirely at your service, and most hap
py to have met you.'
'By the way,' said the Doctor, 'I have a
patient living in that alley a poor old wo
man I look in upon occasionally. Will vou
step there with we? It will not detain us a-
bove ten minutes.
Mr. T. willingly assented, and they en
tered a neat room. On a little table cover
ed with a white cloth, stood an elegant buo
quel, which diffused an agreable perfume
thror.ghoui the apartment.
'Why, Miss Susan,"" akcd the blunt old
physician, 'how long have you been so ex
travagant? Those flowers have cost no

er, sir, and I think they did her more good
than all the medicine she took yesterday.
A young lady, eh?' -
'My buoquet, as sure as fate,- thought
Mr. T . - : ' -
'Doctor, he asked, as seoa as they were
in the street again, 'if you had taken
great pains in selecting choice flowers to
please a young lady, wnat would you think
to 6ee her give them away to an Id wo
man?' " . '
Think! Why, that she considered the
the gift too bright a one to witlxsr among
live heartless sceues ef fashionable life, and
wished to place it where it would . awaken
sincere pleasure.' . .
A few days alter, Mr, 1 managed,
as if by accident, lo meet Dr. II agaia
in ihe vicinity of the house to which his
costly bouquet had been transferred. Fol
lowing his old friend again to the sick, room
he took from the little, table as shily as he
could the witherou flowers, and put. some
fresh ones in their place. Of course, it
was only in a fit of abstraction that ho con
veyed the faded ones to bis pockat instead
of throwing iheto, away.
Some two years after, when .Mr. and
Mrs. T wero packing up for a trip to Eu-
rope.the former took from hisprivate drawer
a withered bouquet, and aaid, 'There, Lu
cy, where do you think I found that?.
'I'm sure I cannot tell,' was her laughing
'I stole it from an old woman's sick room'
he said. 'Your ermsin offered to show you
how to preserve it, but it seems you under
stood the art 'of doing it better than she
thought.' " ' .' "
