Fitm the Sandwich, C. W., Maple Loaf On Monday lasr, Ju le Wilkins, of the l'n't -d S atos Iistriot Court, delivered sen tence in the cas. of Deputy 3Iarh:d Tyler, who was last week eor.viec d of "involunta ry manslaughter in the commission of an unlawful act," which in this cae, moans at tempting t seiz.J unlawfully a vessel in British water--, rnd s'uoting the c.ij tain for warning him off. The sentence is a proper s. quel to the verdict One ihtlar fine and So days imprisonucht. We are sorry that want of space pre vents our giving Jadgc Wilkics' speech in I delivering sentence. We will do so next , week, in order that our read-.rs may learu ' with what delicacy murder is treated ovtr the way in certain cases The case of . Fleming, recently executed in Toronto, whose sentence was carried ii.to effect rin cipally with a view to puttiLg a stop to car-' rying and uing concealed weapons, is a , striking contrast. From the Port Huron Press. Our citizens have not f rg- tten the start ling announcing nt that was made in this eiry, early 011 the mornitig of the l':h of November last, that a man had been shot ; d wn on the deck of his own vessel, while at anchor on the Canada shore, by an effi-; cor of the Federal government, having a civil process to perve Neither have they forgotten how full and abundant was the j evidence elicited in the examiLatkn before the coroner that the act was committed un der circumstances that should, at least, have subjected the f erpetrator to the second, if not the extreme penalty of the law for the , crime of murder. ut this surprise on the L'!hh day of November, was far exceeded by their surprise at the announcement cfi the sentence of Marshal Tyler. That sen-t-nee is, that he pay hit) tho bankrujt Treasury of the United States a fine of. ONK iJOLLAH, and be imprisoned in a certain rookery in Detroit, known as the jail of Wayne county, for the space of TUIKTY DAWS. i ho whole conduct tf this Tyler case,1 from beginning to end, has been a disgrace ful bur't'Hjue uj-on Courts of Justice, and ! the result must bring contempt upon the Court in which it has been reached. 1 litre may have been a question about Tyler's ' being guilty of murdt-r in the first degree, ! but it he was not guilty of manslaughter, committed under circumstances th:?t afford no material palliation of the crime, we know not in what that erime consists. Testimony might and would have Lecn giv o!1, had not the court excluded it, thatwo'd have shown that Tyler left this city fully ( advised that he had no authority to take the Concord where bhe lay, and that the proba-: bilities were that in the attemjt he would Lnd himself in a position where he would cither have to retreat r J'mht i) thv irrotis, and that he left here fully d x r mined to take her fit alt hazards. For hours he had been warned of the danger of his undertaking, and in view of such danger, he boarded the vessel with piste! in hand, prepared f jr an unrri'iifti. That emergency came and he shot hn irthu down as unceremoniously as he would a dog. In an instant the blood of the brave Captain Jones crimsoned l is own d- ck, his wife was widowad and Irs child orphan d For this heniuus crime the miscreant that . pe rpetrated is sentenced to pay the 6um of ON 11 DULLAK, and to be imprisoned TIIIUTV DAYS; a less penalty is usu-1 ally inflicted for giving a fellow a black eye 1 in a drunken row. ' To all such Courts as the U. S. District Court of the Stato of Michigan criminals, will pray to be commended, and from all j such Courts honest men will devoutly pray, j "Good Lord deliver us. ; 1 From the 6ame.J , A well known magistrate of this city, of the democratic party, when it'foimed of the ; sentence of Tyler, exclaimed "liy (I d, Fllgo to shooting down black Ilepublieans. It's the cheapest way to carry elections." j He isn't a malicious man, or we should have some fear that his threats might be put in ' execution. From the Port Sarnia, C. W., Oi 'server. ' , As we intimated last week, Deputy Mar shal Tyh r chargi d with murdering Cap tain Jones of the brig Concord was found ! guilty of manslaughter by the Detroit ju ry before whom he was tried, the verdict being accompanied by a strong reoommen datioii to mercy, on the assumption that the act was accidental. I lis sentence was de ferred until Monday last, but the general , impression seemed to be that he would come off with a very slight puni-hni-nt. from the sympathy with wh eh his case was regarded by the Jury and Court. Few, however, anticipated it would result in such a farce as it has done ; that such an utter mockery of justice would be perpetrated. Detroit papers received here on Tuesday : evening brought the intelligence that Tyh r had received h's sentence on the day previ ous ; an i what, gentle reader, do you think that sentence wa ? " To pay a Jine of oxe dollar to the United States, and t j ; he imprisoned in the jail of Way ne county. State of Michigan, fur, and during the peri-td of thiiti days".'.' Was ever such : mockery of justice perpetrated in any coun ty claiming to be civilized 1 We think we may fearlessly answer, Sever .' The sentence as pronounced by Judge Wilkin occupies nearly a column of the Detroit papers, and the whole thing seems to be a piece of special pleading in favor of the prisoner, tlivs facts being misrepresented and a strong inclination exhibited of a do s:re to extenuate and apologise r the vil lain, who in a Lt of wanton bravado, with out he shadow of an excuse, so unscrupu lously attd unlawfully took the lite of a fel low citizen, merely because he claimed the protection of the Dritish flag, and disputed ; as he had a jerfect right to d the author ity of Tyler to act in his capacity as Mar shal in serving process on a vessd moored . in Canadian waters. j It :s but justice to a porti.n of the De troit pre.-s to say, however, that they de nounce the farce ss strongly a? we cau pos sibly do. They admit thut he was doing an unlawful act in trying to seize a vessel : in Cana lian waters, had no right to go i around at ail, still less to pvint his pistol at j Capt. Jones wheu w thin a few feet of hix; j and that for either of these acts, having I wholly oat of view the question tf his in ! tention to commit murder, he merited cvn j digen punishment. The papers claim for ! the people if Detroit er Michigan, cx-mp-j tioa from the condemnation which the j ' farae" merits, and will justly receive f v ! ery where. The trial wrs conducted alto ! ge'ther by United States officers, that is, by ' th? oGoiuls of the Federal lovcrnmeritand ! their conduct finds no sympathy with the ' people of the State. We hope this is real ly the case. In fact we wonder whether i there is one man in the Union who will venture to hold up his head and defend such a burlesque on the solemn proceedings of a court constituted to enquire into a matter cf lifi and death. This ' farce." therefore, sj far as ary f jr th(r trial of Tyhr by American ceiins is concerned, is ended. The only tjUe.-tion tn w is, wiil our Canadian aiith rities n-1 claim the right to take the matter up. u: -dt r the Ashburton treaty. TheZ'Wfr, ((.iovernuieLt organ) affirms distinctly "'that nothing can be clearer than that, under the Ashburton treaty, he ought to have been handed over to the Canadian authorities f r trial that the municipal laws of Michigan cannot come in to irevent the operation of the treaty and that the question of his e x tradition cannot ytt be regarded as settled." We shall see. A I)K.l) COVKK.Ml-:.T. The prevailing sentimer.t is that n-ji'-Buchanan's Administration is virtual ly defunct; its vitality is all gone; it is an object of contempt with Democrat and Ke puhlican, which every body has ceased to regardas in the way in the political future. Looking hack a few short months we see Republicans, Americans, Anti-Lecompton Democrats and Democrats of other kinds too, uniting together to defeat the measures, the candidates, the wishes of the Adminis. tratiou. These coalitions were generally successful. But now the breath is fairly knocked out of the body of this Adminis tration ; and even the Republicans can no longer use it as a bugbear or scarecrow The natural consequence of this altered slate of things will be the crumbling to pieces of tho temporary coalitions referred to; and they cannot bo renewed. Jlwhs. ter Union. It would be fortunate for its party if the Union c uld induce them to adopt its cwm ground, viz : that of discarding and dis claiming all responsibility for the acts of the present Administration. But this they will not do, so long as tho Administration is the sotirec of patronage, plunder and pow er. But in one respect the Union's argu ment lacks cohesion. "Wo hnve tried one Democrat ij President" is its theory ; "and he has proved so unfit and tyrannical as to Income an object of contempt toeverylndy. Therefore let us elect anothir like him !'' It is true this policy was adopted in H .". Democrats who repudiate the acts of Pres ident Pierce, were induced by fair promises of a "new policy," toe:1 st their suffrages fur Buchanan. But the result has shown that they only exchanged bad for worse. The time game cannot be played twice success fully. It would be a delightful thing fr Administration Party if they could make the President the scape-goat f.-r all their : misdeeds. But the people will hold the' party as well as its agent to accountability. Albany Journal. PEXSYI.VAI V DKMOCIMTIC STATK ; KH.IirS IONYKVI IO. flarrisburg.lVednrsday, April V-l. ' The Democratic State Rights Conven-1 tion met this morning. The attendance ! was very large. Alexander McKinuey p re sided. ; The IIou. John Hickman made a speech of an hour's length, in which he s:iid : These who talk of conciliation and com promises between us and the self-constituted oracles of the Democratic party, can have j but a feeble appreciation of the real condi tion of things. Let this truth be made : prominent, that there is eternal antagonism between Freedom and Slavery. The strug gle between them is but ju-t begun, and is going 011 in our midst. We have acted , honorably, benevolently, and longer forbear ance with the South ne-i only ceases to be irtuous, but becomes cowardly and base. Th North has rights long held in abey ance truly, yet not lost ; we will save them ; by walls and fire and blood, if need be, we will save them. We wi 1 resist aggresson on the part of the South, but not her constitutional guaranties, and will f.rcc a plain, distinct, unequivocal recognition of the rightful claims of the North; nothing 'more and n- thing less. Further, ausurpa t on has been accomplished which saj s t the very foundation of our political struc ture. Mr. Buchanan has demanded the ab.-orpt-on of the powers of Congress in those of the Executive. To carry out his treachery he has assailed the representa tives of the people, bribed the venal, re ward the aspiting, alarmed and timid, de ceived the honest. .-lore recently, howev er, when the recommendations of tho Pros ider.t were thought to favor the agricultural and manufacturing States; when the pro priety f a new tariff law was suggested : when the so- viHed Demeicratie Members ef the Senate and the House, even the Cabi net elEexrs, rui-ed the voice e.f denunciato ry ep rV:tion, it was all right, and rebellion became Iuynlry. And yet Pennsylvania! see nothing wn.ng in this; nay, they commend it. Chains never clanked upon the limbs of beings mor servile and de based. We charge further vpon the ad ministration of Mr. Buchanan cr.e n.ai:; cau? by which we have reached the point of national insolvency, a reckless prodigal ity in the expenditures of the public money and the prevailing vice in the Departments of the rlovernmcnt. lie referred to the Van Buren aiministra? ien, when the expen ditures of the Government were thirty-seven million. This he pronounced very ex travagant, but nothing to compare with the present time, when the cxpens were in creased to one hundred millions. He then alluded to the navy ynr 's, all crew Jed with supernumeraries, while the expanses of the Post Office Department are greatly aug mented. These proceeding, which he characterized as outrageous and indorsed a genuine ly a Convention purporting to rep resent the Democratic pnrfy intb State. He then declared that Mr. Buchanan and his cohorts were incomplete. His ad dress was qaite lengthy, and produced con siderable effect. The committee reported resolution? to the following effect : That we are here to day to resist every attempt to weaken or overthrow the cree l of the Democratic p ar ty to unite for the purpose of restoring iu all their vigor and purity the grcst truths that have heretofore made the Dem ocracy th- conquering organization which has contributed to the enduring welfare cf tho Union ; that this convention most sol emnly declares its warta attachment to the urn--a cf the ates, to maii.taia which it j'edgts all its j ewers ; ar, l tl.:-t .;r this end :t is rur du'y to 1 j pese- ivory infrae tLii ef those principles, which constitute the oi ly lu.-is of that un on, leC".u.- a fa.th.ul olservanee if t!::. can i nly secure its existei.ee and rullie L.j j It s Thht wc r.re Iviind t. r-.-g 1 r-.i the A 'min istru'i ns huvi::g f-Tfelt. i the e l.tiiit.ee - f th. eop'e ai. i to ue:."'it:ce it as unw.-r-thy of the surf' rt of the F ;.. ruk- jar ty ; that the a::emrtof t'.e Admimstrati.n to disregnrd the e.-vmai.r f 1. t J iu its tcad ireet a desp-'ti? tt t t-c--tfje! ob. -dience to doctrines sul vt isiv-' i r t u 1 .t- .an iit erfv, was tl.e v.". ; .. n rl I'e ocratic paity, L'lt of 1 v!.- t.;. 1 r-- V.vcd upon ami itious purposes ; th:-' we rein Lrse the principles ot joj t.!.r .-ven igt.ty, r.ot. i:crvt nt:iii 1:1 it!.- 5 . i. :bv iL-States n "n intervention ly Conirre.-s with Slavery in the Territoiii s, and 1. in'eivention by the Federal Executive with the franchises of the p.cvjle of the Stat that we re uJi ate the platform of the Convention of March ; and that no matter wh it the decis ion of the Supreme Court nay ho ou the abstract question, still the right if the peo ple to make a slave territory er a frie ter ritory is per J! ct M:l comj-hte under the Nebraska bill.

It would seem that in many dep artments there is not only a deliK-rafe disregard of the letter of the law. but, more shameful fact stili, that there have been au thorized iol.itioTis i f the sanctity of private eoiTcsj ondence.

So insecure has the transmission if jrivac correspx n dence become, that one might well think there was here, as in tho p almy days of the Austrian despotism, a censor of the mails one who, with diabolical ingenuity, got inside cf letters and allowed all to p ass that wcro unexce j'tionable to its requirement, and withheld all that were calculated to de feat or 'nd.irri--- the j urj-ose f the "pow ers that are.'

He ha b-eii j alous of her, slid sh", as is s.id, fully su.jaine-! her share of tho quarrel. They reside at No. 1 Mi!,vauke.-avi nue, and their bickering i and strifes had become the top ic r.f conversation among the in oi'jh bors. Within the week pn-f, she has tw;o caused his arrest, :i the compl iint pref-r-rol by her that he I;ad beaten and maltrea ted her. The first time she 3:.f ; t appa ar to sustain t lie charge, r:n 1 he was -t at lib erty, which sh alleges he u-e J so much to her bjdily peril in a sound beating, that he wa at her instance a e(Nin-I time tiken in to custody, and on her evid-nc?, in Tues day's Police Court fined ?" f r an assault upon her. The wretched c t:j !e went homo from the Armory together. Yesterday morning, after the usual hv"2r of opening hi h-r, the curtain- remained down and th d -. r- fiiene-d. with no move menr of p-rret; within, until a neighbor, mtra'-ted by th- cireTni-tar.ee, and on ex-aniinat-i n t.otieung a strong od -r of gis, as if escaping in -the aj artm-nt i f the Saals, broke the d t in. The man Sail was f, an 1 lying in ! d iti a state of nneon-ei-'-usne?, which the medi cal ai l immediately s-im?r. ned disc vered to be the tffe'ct of s .ru- f.rm of op bun The woman was a;-s:r.g. and. what was more singular, the gas had bee n turned cn from all the burners, and allowed to escape into the r - -n, the air of which was in :ch a state as to be f itself almost inevitably a caus.- , f d:ath. Net l.ng after the discovery of this state cf affairs, the woman re turne I, zz. 1 frni the suspicious circ imsrancv inventing the mat tor, she W3S taken into custody for whtwas U-lievel t be an ntterop t on her part to p oison her husband, who she say took a do-,- of laudlam to dt-tn-y hitnso'f. That she she uld have taken the course she did :n thus absenting horsolf without giving the alarm, sup p-Osing this account to be true, weighed against the truth o f her statement.
