remote situation from the arbitrary institution of Europe,
although many of it republican features arj but the de
velopment of that leaven of Ireedom which ha been
working for centuries in the breasts ol a lew independent
Ölat legislation, which" ii the primary act of the people,
is abrogated at will by a paramount federal power. .No
one can fail to see the necessity of a restriction upon the
legislative and judicial action of a Slate, where it is car
ried beyond its legitimate sphere; but the federal power,
men who-e aspirations for liberty were paralyzed by the n .nVl? 'g'8.P"r' u.'e 7"'
pervading influenca of bad government. This spirit ani- a,d,?d b,v Jud,c,al assumption and professional ob
mated the En-lish barons, when they demanded a char- nMt ridca oer State legislation at will, whir
lutionill of us anJ every man alike. Do not let nj
man forget his own irnporiance in society.

sequioiis-, forget your worth, your dignity, nor your duty to your
ellow-citizens and tii yourself, i ne
ter of King John at the commencement of the thirteenth
century; but of how much practical hem fit was this
great boon to the mass of the Knglish people ?
It was a concession from a greater to a lesser tyrant,
whilst the real bone and sinew, the working men of the
nation, gained but little. The progress of liberty in Cog
land has been of the same character to the present d.iy.
What is abstracted from the King remains with the no
bles ; or if taken from both, is divided amongst a privi
leged few, and retained. The mas of the people con
tinue slaves, whose condition nriy be deemed superior in
the scale of political consideration to that of the serf w ho
is attached to the soil, whilst it is practically worse ; and
a complicated system of tyranny under the name ot Con
stitution and Laws, upholds a monstrous combination of
King, temporal and spiritual lord, pensioners, profession
al crafts, and large and sin ill dealers of all kinds, who
are united by nno common interest t crush and plunder
an unresisting people. The despotic principle has been
taken from an individual and from a privileged few, mid
diffused among grades of tyrants, fiom tho Kin to the
petty huckster, and the condition of all these subordi
nate degrees of usurpation may have been improv
ed ; but the whole curse of inequality rests upon the
nation, and the laboring masses nie ground into the dust,
not so much by the quality or degree as by the numerical
excess ( fthat incongruous und merciless aristccracy. In
th American Declaration of Indcpendehi-c, all men are
declared equal, endowed by their Creator with certain
lights which cannot he given up nor taken away, among
which are life, liberty, and the pursuit nf happiness. To
secure these right governments are instituted among
men; and whenever any form of government becomes
destructive of the;e ends, it is the njrht of the people to
alter or abolish it, and lay a foundation in a form that
shall seem to them most likely to insure their safety and
happiness. This is the substance ofth.it plain, but when
the utateofthe civilized world at the time of its procla
mation is considered, most glorious declaration of the
rights of man. Our Constitution may In? defective, our
laws may be unjust. We will fall bark, then, upon this
grand declaration of right,and remodel and improve the
existing institutions : or, if thought necessary to human
happiness, establish a new system that may be better
adapted tu effect that object. And who that acknowledges
the truth of that dei hiratioii, will deny the right of the
people, at any moment, to abolish all existing institu
tions of government, and lay its foundation anew ?
As we have already endeavored to show by a glance
at the condition of (treat Itritaio, aristocratic power has
there become diffused, and moro intolerable-, although it
is less apparent, and les omnipotent in the h;inds of a
few. Ttl and birth have yielded to the influence of
money ; and that ancestral dignity which originated in
personal worth, in the kil of statesman, or the cou
rage and conduct of warriors that legitimate aristocracy
which a reflected dignity that ha somewhat in it remote
association at least to endear it to buman affection, has
metted d wn into the rude and insolent aristocracy of
wealth. Let 11 eiamine our own progres a a nation,
ami see in what respect we are exempt from a like ca
lamity. In establishing the American Government, it was in
dispensable that the authority should proles to emanate
from the whole people. Lvery man, with inconsiderable
exceptions, was a freeholder, lie cultivated his own
ioil,and reaped and enjoyed its whole fruits. The ex
posure of savage attacks, which was universal, trained
every citizen to arms. The father of each household was
an independent warrior whilst yet a colonist, even more
10 than the fierce barons who met at llunnymede to brow
beat their king ; for he was relieved from those exactions
which are required by a monarch, however limited his
power, whilst enjoy ing every essential privilege which is
guarantied to the most favored citizen under our existing
form of government. It is important to remark, that in
the early days ofour republic every citizen cultivated his
own soil; and if this right may not be considered nn in
dispensable feature in the character of individual free
dom, perhaps no man will be inclined to deny that it i es
sential ; or fail to see that the most obvious and practica
ble schemes of insuring to each individual the means of
profiting by the pol.tical independence which is prornied
to all, is to be found in giving to every citizen n com-
piuny f th soil which is spread out before us, like
the air of heaven or the wa'ers of the ocean for the com
mon use of man. Political freedom and equality was
proclaimed to the American people, and th possession
of the soil gave our l ather tho means of profiting by this
blessing. The declaration of independence is a perfect
charier. The constitutions ars a departure from its trite
spirit, r ederal and Mate Legislation, and practical in
risprudence are burying back the mass of our people to
the inequality and wretchedness of the most corrupt go
vernment. Where the equal rights rf man are recognised, there
can be no guide for governmental action b:it in the will
of a majority. In this respect the Constitution of the
United States is palpably erroneous. The assent of two
thirds of the members of Congress is requisite even to
propose an amendment to the Constitution, and the ap
plications of I lie Legislatures of two-thirds of th respec
tive Slates is required for calling a Convention to alter
that instrument. The ratifu ation by the Legislatures of
three-fourths of the States is necessary to render anv
amendment valid ; whilst the unequal representation in
the Senate is imt presumptuously declared to be furecer
It 140 ml the control of the people .'
yrUo executive patronage i enormous, and totally sub
versive in it effect of all respect for the people, or just
regard f r their rights and interests. The power given to
Congress to regulate the time of service ami pay of it
own members, lead inevitably to an exorbitant requisi
tion on their p ort, and to the natural result of extravagant
pay in every other department of the public service within
tlieir 'ontrol, tliat countenance may be given to their own
excess. This abu-e i fuliiciently oh ious in its preposter
ous feature of allowing a public servant to fix hi own
timo of service and rate of pay ; but in it unavoidable
tendency to extravagance throughout the public service,
it throws an oppressive burthen upon the people. All
this might be more pa'iently borne, however, than it ef
fect in creating an invidious distinction between the in
dustriotis citizen and the well paid officer of the general
government. The honest farmer nnd mechanic, whose
labor sustains the nation, are re.vardtd by a very moder
ate compensation. The head of the family works the
wifo, the sons, and daughter are all industrious, frugal
and economical; and tiny move in what are termed in
this land of perfect equality, the humbler walks of life.
Tho public servant, with possibly a few exceptions, leads
a life of eac and luxury, lie lives well, dieses well
Iiis wife and daughter are fine ladies his sons gentlemen
of leisure, ar l all move in a circle of society w hich as
sumes pre-eminence all claim and cxereise a maiked
superiority over the industrious und useful 1 iti.en. This
glaring inequality creates a supercilious pride, on 'lie one
side, and too often a bitter disgust and fierce hatred on
the other, which i fttal to social enjoy nicnt, whilst ad
verse to all judicious reform.
Cternal vigilance i the price of freedom." We do
not pay that price. We neither watch ourselves, nor
employ trust-worthy sentinels. Oui constitution are not
studied, and the mass of the people are ignorant of the
law of the land. The laws of the United States fiave
never been put within the reach of the people ; there is
no edition tt them extant and not only to ihe mass ot
the American nation, but to the intelligent few, whose
leisure and mean and inclination might prompt them to
become acquainted with the Jaws of their country, this
knowledge 1 interdicted.
To show the utter hopelessness of obtaining a know
ledge of these laws, winch are inado for our benefit, and
sustained by our authority and strength which ill cer
tain cases dispose ofour property, our lives and reputa
tion it is enough to say that an edition of the laws of the
United States, now in progress through private enter
prise, is to make six large volumes of eight hundred pa
ges each, and can be procured only by pay ing twenty-five
dollars for a copy. Hut this exhibit. a small part of the
practical difficulties in the path of the honest man who
desires to understand his duty as an American citizen.
He must obtain also a knowledge of the laws of his own
State, generally consisting of a huge mass of statutes,
commencing with colonial legislation and brought down
to our day, nnd continued with annual, copious and con
flictinff additions. Nor is this a tithe of the research that
is required to understand our legal rights nnd disabilities.
We must dive to the bottom of that muddy stream, the
common law of England, which is made, with inconsid-
erable exceptions, the law of our land ; and some idea o
which may be obtained br studying five or six hundred
volumes of Lnglish and American reporters.
It need scarcely be urred unon the mind of an intelli
.rent citizen, that he who is controlled by laws which he
never made, understood nor consented to, is virtually a
.... - m a I .
slave; nor can he tell whether, under the law, lie nas
one natural right left. The people are overwhelmed and
impoverished and crushed by the weight of a legal sys
tem which originated under an arbitrary government,
where the mass of the people are now enduring the last
extremities of hopeless want and destitution, with no
hope of redress but in a bloody revolution. A system of
complicated law against natural right, which paralyzes
the arm of freedom, and which can only he broken
down by the intelligence, the intrepidity and firmness
of the whole people. Much maybe done by remodel
ling our State Constitutions, and a consequent reform in
ourStafe legisJation ; but this would be scarcely effectu
al whilst exposed to the inroad of federal legislation,
and the encroachments ol a supreme and irresponsible
judiciary. This evil of fcdcr-l interference deserves
abused people have succeeded in procurirg the passage
of a law to protect tlieir iiitural rights against the en
croachment of monopoly. And this, loo, in cases where
the federal interests are in no degree impli ated. and up
on ground forbidden lo federal power, and sacred to the
Slate and to the people.
Let us for 11 moment revert again to the Declaration of
Independence which proclaims all men to be free, and
entitled to equal rights, that can neither be yielded up
nor taken away. Self-government, which is nu indis
pensable attribute of a free people, can never be surren
dered. The agents for the administration of the laws
are but the servants of the people, appointed to execute
their will, and at all tunes responsible to their constitu
ents for a just performance of duty. The people are lite
fountain of power, and each individual nn integral part
of the great hovcreignfy of the nation. As such il is the
duty of each and every one to understand the laws, and
guard against that abuse. Now let me inquire how ma
ny of us attend to this duty? Not one. A knowledge
of the laws of the nation i denied to us in anv shape.
The State laws are scarcely less unapproachable ; nnd
the uritish common law which 1 incorpoiated into the I
administration of both, is but imperfectly understood by
men who have devoted their lives lo the study. A know
ledge of existing law is Iber fore impracticable, and can
we indulge in a more ill-founded and preposterous idea
than tho expectation of effecting any useful reform n
mongst a people who are so profoundly ignorant of the
law which contiol their destiny.
Thi fatal ignorance of the law i so common, ami has
so long been oveilooked entirely, or considered necessary
and unavoidable, that we seldom dwell upon it influence
on the interests of society, lint is it not reasonab'e to
suppose that if legislation and the administration of the
laws is left to a few, who are alone competent to dis
charge these necessary dutits, the interest of that few
will be subserved at the expense of the people? The
enactment of law and the whole administration of jus
tice is a trade which is for the most part limited lo a class
in society who are educntt d lor that vocntion.
The necessarv division of labor which is required in
the mechanic arts, and in the useful professions, can nev
er be safely applied to legislation, because that objct
embraces every employment und every condition in life.
The intf rest ol every Mtizi-n is iqmilly ntVcctod by Ihe
good or bad administration of the government, und it is
equally the duty of all to hold its operations under a ri
gid supervision. The business transactions of the com
munity nre peileclly understood ov intelligent mm, nnd
when differences ot opinion occur, a jury composed cf
honest citizens find no dithcully in stilling the question
upon equitable principles. Law ran do no more to pro-
tnott! the ends of justice ; whilst arbitrary and conflicting
statutes, or a formidable airay ot precedent with the
usual accompaniment if professional ingenuity, ;ire as
likely to subvert justice n to promote it. Complicated
cases frequently nnse which seem to require great proles
sional skill, but it i the uncertainty and the ambiguity of
law which makes them complicated. It is a slander up
on the present generation of men, and upon the intelli
gence of frc America, to say that we are incapable id
composing our domestic litlt renecs without complicated
statutory provision, or without recurring to the ptnetico
which prevailed centuries ago n:norig?t a semi-barbarous
people, and under an arbitrary government.
Were it in my power to do this subject justice, cur time
does not admit of it ; but it i important that we should
all be fully possessed of the fact that tho laws in this
country, like the laws under many other governments
which promise less, are made not by the people nor for
the benefit ol the people, but to favor a prominent few.
No reform can be effectual that does not embrace a
thorough revision of our constitution and laws, because,
under them as they now exist, the government of the
country is in the hands of associated wealth, and entirely
beyond the control of the mass ol the people, who are
merely its victims.
The prominent measures recommended by the Nation
al Reform Asocinlions, to make the public land free to
the landless citizen, is a tangible object which can scarce
ly fail to meet ihe approbation of eveiy honest and re
flectitij citizen, and it lead at once to a consideration of
the parent evil in our social sy stem ; the monopoly of a
few and the destitution of the many.
Thi state ot things could neer haVo taken place
amongst an intelligent people, had we not adopted, with
out reflection, the Inwsofan arbitrary government, which
had their foundation not in the will and ihe wants cd the
industrious citizen, but in the will of a class that were
betit upon sustaining themselves upon the labor of other
men. The laws relative to property were adopted with
no essential modification from such as prevail in (Jrent
Uiitain, ami they have the effect of creating an aristocra
cy ol wealth which must prove as fital to liberty a the
worst form of despotiin. The indotrioua but conscien
tious man who would fulfil the duties of a gooj rilifcen,
struggles through life with Inhor and diflieulty, whilst bis
lesi ' ropulous neighbor, who sacrifices all the chnrities
of life to the lust of gain, becomes ric h. With thi re
sult wo are nil familiar, and with the fear of destitution
before 11, we nil cultivate the talent of acquiring proper
ty, and neglect the better faculties of man. We ynust do
this or starve. This abuse of our moral ami physical na
ture would be remedied at onep, were we not in the habitu
al neglect of the first, the tnost solemn, and imperative duty
of American ciiizen that i to possess a thorough know
ledge of the f und iineiitnl principles of a free government,
and maintain a vigilant super ision of every t'rtuial
feature in it operation. I'm we tumour backs upon the
whole. The arts of our national legislature, the laws of
our St:ite, the whole system of I t deral and State juris
prudence is a sealed nook to the great mas or the Amer
ican people and whi!.t boasting ofour free institutions
and our riht of self-government, wr nie cringing and
lerisbing under the nmunirc of Ipws that we necrmade
never consented to and never iinderrlood.
The greatest abusr, however, is the It ght of Property.
This is an important right and it should be placed on a sure
and just foundation. It is a right whtrh can be justly
wrested from no one. Hut under the fanctinn of certain
eel form, we permit the accumuliticn of property to an
unlimited amount in the hands of individutU am! corporate
Midi s w In 1st the moderate acquiM'mns of honest labor are
dilficult and insecure. Instances are known in our cr.untrv,
of itidiviiiml proprietors w ho pns-css Hit title to more than
1: und red thousand acres of land, whilst millions of our
deserving and inJustrious cilizrns are una', ic lo prrrurootie
1 r - 1 .a a
acre or even one square rou 01 inur moiner eartn. Here
the inequ ility i striking, and can be reconciled to no j st
conceptions of natural riht : yet the law makes the title to
such vast tracts as sure ai.d unalienable to the individual,
as the moderate sized estate to the hird-woiking farmer. In
such case, let it be remarked, the large proprietor hold
only by process of law; ho cannot occupy or appropriate
to his own use and cultivation but a moderate portion of
land : beyonu this quantity it 1 valuable to him only so f.r
as he can command the labor of others. Il is the same
relative to all other property. So much a I can fairly
approprhte lo my own use, with a euitab'e regard lo the
rights of others, may be justly claimed as my own. If I
overleap that bound, the value to me is not in the property.
since I can make no use of it, but in the bodies of other
men, my brethren atd equa's under the Declaration of
Rights, whose labor 1 comunnd not by any natural rieht,
but by constitutional and legal durrss. Money irjveotcd in
hinkit'g, insurance, ra;way and other stocks, is immedi
ately dissipated by tho want of the community, and its
value consists in the legil claim which is retained upon
the labor and enterprise of our fellow citizens. Without
that labor it would be useless ; and that labor could never
be commanded did every industrious citizen possess that
rightful portion of his mother earth which belongs to him,
not by virtue of his reputed father or mother, nor by the
force or the fictions of hw, but by inheritance from that
errat Heavenly Father who has provided abundantly for all
His children. To present the subject of natural rights and
conventional wrongs in another aspect. No iudividunl
can justly throw himcelf upon society for physical suste
nance. Unless he contributes to ihe common fund by
useful labor, whether of the head or the hands, be is a
drone and a nuisance he is guilly of equal wrong to the
public, as if he ivere to commit an overt act of theft, anJ
the example is no lets detrimental to the moral habits of
the rising generation. V bile life continues the human
body is subject to animal wants which must be supplied.
We cannot earn and consume one great breakfast, dinner
and supper which will suffice for our natural life, or put oti
one garment, or light one fire which are to perish only
with the vital organs. The supply must be created and
furnished from dav to d.iv and from year lo war. Now
show me the free ticket which exempts one sound member
of the human family from his portion of this indispensable
task which Heaven has allotted to every son of man 1
What answer does the rich man make to this question !
Dors he turn to the Declaration of American Independence!
No! hands off! he can find nothing to sustain him there.
Does he appeal to any consideration . of equal rights, or
justice between man and man I No ! JJut be sets beiore
itnever the j country, to your fellow-
social condition of society U bad, we are all sufferers under
its injustice, we rely confidently on your support and
assistance in every just fTrt to make it better."
But il is not thoe alone who arc doomed to some labori
ous employment for an adequate compensation that iha
evüs of the existing constitutions of society overwhelm
with their heavy cutse. Since there is no limit to the
acquisition of property, our intelligent youth are educated
in the belief that it is their duty, if possible, to become
r ch. Thousand daily embsik in mercantile pursuit, not
with the moderate expectation of obtainii g a comfortable
subsistence only, but with the determination of becoming
very rich. Whatever may be their talents, whatever their
industry and frugality, a propoition not less than ninety
nine in every hundred must be disappointed lerause all
cannot be rich, and under the existing constitution of
society a very limited portion of the greediest aspirants for
wealth can be successful. Here, then, remark bow grcal
a number of disappointed, perhaps discouraged and broken
hearted men, that one cormorant may be glutted with
riches. Men who possefs talent for business find no ditli-
culty in obtaining the use of money, lot capitalist who
. . a
have money must lend Uor it remain useless in tneir
hands. Whilst business seems prosperous they are elated
with the prospect of large profits, and indulge in expensive
habit. Their famines arc frequently raised in idleness,
more especially ihe female portion of ihem ; a reverse of
future happens the father i bankrupt, perhaps dies.
What become then of the helpless family ! Some angel
of charity may s;ive them ; but how many are now the
tenants of wretched garrets and noisome cellars, or of
receptacles still more fearful t
" The big fish eat up the little ones." This is a very
common ssying as applied to men in comparative stage of
wealth. Many bf our extensive dealers feel the justice of
its application to their own case. They fail in business,
whether fiom improvidence or unavoidable cirrun. stances.
The rich man or the Uank which ha allirded them firili
ties for tho transaction of lusinc.-s, mut be patJ. Af er
passing through the mill of insolvency, if enough oT
courage and talent and animal force is left to commence
anew, they are agxin accommodated with tho requisite
facilities. A Fcror.d or a third disaster befalsan enterpris
ing man, but be is set upon his legs again so long a he
bids fair to prove a profitable customer to the Hank.
Uut when broken down by hard service he is cal off with
out one qualm of conscience to live as he can, or die.
Thousands are thus wearing out their lives to swell the
dividends of a Uank. Yes, there are hundreds, perhnp
thousands, in this city who would be glad to shake off this
harness which is galling them to .the quick, could they flee
to a spot of green earth w hich they might call their own.
Professional men, and every condition in society labor
under their peculiar disadvantages in consequence of the
inequality which pervades the whole; and this evil is
materially aggravated by the universally admitted fact, that
overgrown wealth is generally employed lo promote sen
sual gratification. Themoral character and the health of
the possessor is too often a victim to the indulgence which
riches encourage, and his bad example hns a baneful e fleet
upon the young and unreflecting portion of every commu
nity where it is seen or felt.
Nothing could be more true than the remark, that no one
portion of any community can suffer injustice without
ultimate injury to the whole ; and although the piass of
society which is submitted ao immediately to the crushing
of the nether mill-stone is naturally the first to cry cit,
there is reason to hope that the necessity of a reform which
may renovate the entire organization of society will be
ronsented to by every friend of humanity, in whatever
condition of life his lot may have been cast.
Thomas Jefferson was the author of the Declaration of
Independence, and the steady and inflexible advocate of
the rights of man. vv hilst a member of the Continental
Congress, and during the progress of the Revolutionary
War, he made use of these remarkable words :
It can never be too often repeated, that ths time far
fixing every essential right upon a legal basis, is while our
rulers are honest and ourselves united. From the condi
tion of this war we shall be going down hill. It will not
then be necessary to resort every moment to the people for
support. They will be forgotten, therefore, and tlieir rights
disregarded. They will forget themselves, but in the sole
farulty of making money, and will nut think of uniting to
e fleet a due respect of their rights. I he shackles, there
fore, which shall not be knocked off at the conclusion of
this war, will remain on us long will be made heavier and

Since the d pjrture of the last Steamer the failure in
the Fotatoe t'rop has developed itself much more decidedly
and extendi v ly than was before apprehended, particularly
in Ireland, whuh h is increased the rxciteruent in the Corn
Markets and caused & further considerable rise 111 prices.
American I lur in bond i in demand at 29 per bbl. and
genera'ly held at 30. and Canada free fl ur may be quoted
35 a 30 per bbl. American wheal in bond of good quality
would'brii g 7 3d to 8 r 70 lis. Indian Corn is in good
demand and l!ie price in fund has advanced to 35 and
duty ptid to 42 per qr of 480 lbs. The weather too has
continued unfavorable for . the compL'trm f the .Grain
Harvest in the late liorlheru districts, and this hns con
tributed in come degree to the advance in the Market.
The dutie rcoiaiu the same, and their fituie c ure 1 a
matter of uncertainty, as the tip ration of ihe r'ue in prices
on the average will depend o much on the qunlity and
condition tif the new Wheat, and the quantity of damaged
and inferior which may be brought upon the markets.
The Uai k of Ki. gland has jut advanced it minimum
rale of interest tp per et p r annum, and the general
rate in the moiwy market is about one per cent higher than
six weeks ago, with ull an uj ward tendency.

pains this week to enquire about the price of this article,
and ?ive the f dlowiuc a the result cf our enouirie. The

the price annexed :
One lot of 1 ..rUO h'"gs, averaging 200 lb., at f 3 50.
One lot of 1 000 hogs, averaging 200 lb.,sit .1,70.

One lot, wrilu and number not known, at 3,75.
One lot of 1. 100 hog, averaging 200 II.. at 3,87$.
There are various eslimales a to iha number of hogs
likely to be kill il here; some setting it down as high as
100 000, while others think il will nol go over 50,000.
Salt i plenty at 23 cents at ihe river, and 25 cents frcm

Jfessra. Chaprfinns I hive thought it proper lo com
municate through your paper to your numerous retdcri,
the account of an occurrence which took place here this
morning, and which has excited a curious interest amongst
our citizens and duubllt'M will he intcrcMing to all who
may rca! it.
On this morning at half past four o'chir!;, tho itlirm cf
fire rang through our villape ; at first Lut a few voi carried
the nlarin ; lut 0011 every Mreet echoed with hhouta and
poured out their nuinhers. 'J'hc county jiil was on lire; a
wooden building which stood in tho north-west corner of
the public Bijuare. It contained one prisoner, who wa
indicted and trieil the last term of Court hr pet tit larconv,
found guilty by the Jurv, but the Judge believing the evi
dence sgainst him insufficient to convict him, ret aii!c the
vctdict,aid he v33 hound fir his appearance at the m-xt
Court, lie waa a boy of 18 ; daring, reckless end unprin
cip!cd. He had broken out of evrr.il jiils before his im
prisonment in this, and had burned out of this once and
escaped ; but returnii.g wi'h a quantity of Mi -lc ri frcpertv,
he was again confined. Ho was put into the dungeon.
His object probably was to burn the luck f the trap elo r,
force it. and make his csrac. Doubtless while engaged in
this, the fire got beyond his reach, rushed into the upper
part of the building, wa bursting from the roof when the
first cry of firewns heard. The first person who airived
at the ppot could hear no amind from within, and a'l stood
uninterested rpectattira, whilst the flitnes ro letl on. It wa?
a point upon tvhich many opinions were diiTerent, whether
he had escaped or whether he wa9 consumed by the fire.
Tu-elay about 10 o'c lock a search w as inade, eTter deaden
ing the coal:, in different parts of the; room fl or, without
finding any trace of his remains. The peop'e were leav
ing the spot with the opinion lhat he had escaped: but
Borne more searching for the remains of hi bed, a few
human hones were found upon it; whilst his crisped hor
nd oilier clothing weie discovered upon it also. The
wretch waa burned. No one doubts it. An on imuu.

Sinking of l PlymmVi Ticenly Lives fast.
We arc indebted to one of our Forwarding Mer
chant.-?, say the Cincinnati Commercial, f r the fol-
luwinp account of an awful steamboat collision on the
Ohio by which sonu twenty lives were lost. The
steamboat Plymouth, bound to St. L'uiis, with a large
number of pisscnijers, was run into by tlie Lady
Madison, fh'C miles above Shawneetown on Monday
night lact, which caused the Plymouth td sink imme
diately to hrr boiler deck. None cf the cabin passen
gers was lost, but it U supposed that twenty deck
n.isscnTcrs it not more, were drowned. A hole was
immediately cut through the cabin lloor, and several
passengers, who had managed to keep out of tlie wa
tor hr rrrttiin' on boxes, tvc.. were thus rescued. J he
