LANSING STATE REPUBLICAN
OCTOBER 11,
Death of Hon. D. C. Broderick.
It las long been known that the Administra
tion party ot California had compassed the death
of Senator llroderick. The manner of their ac-
comidirhmcnt of this deed was that David S
Terry, a ruffian from Texas, whose bloody hands
once held the scales of justice, as the first Chief
Justice of California, Denver and Gwinn, should
challenge the Tictiin in succession.
The telegraphic account of Senator Broderick s
death rtatea that the occurrence created deep
icitement in San Francisco, and well it might.
Wherever aa Anti-Lecompton Democrat is to be
,....l il...m ;!! be found a man who will regard
the death of Broderick as a willfnl murder.
The hate which followed Broderick was as
deep and bitter as that with which Burr pursued
Hamilton. ai.d the pretext for the duel which is
offered by Terry and his apologists, is startlingly
imilar to that which was offered in the case 01
.v- ,.e,.l..r ,.t Hamilton, viz: that the victim
had emrcssed a want of confidence in the l.iii-
cal integrity of the challenger.
Well did Mr. Seward remark that the pro-
slavery feeling is deeper in California than in
Delaware and Maryland, although the first is
noininallv a Free State, and the two latter legal-
he slavery. In every sens; of the word is hen
tor Broderick a martyr to the political principles
which he embraced, and his blood will add itself
to river already shed by the advocates of free
dora, and the victims of pro-slavery wrath
From the death of Ix)vejoy at Alton, not a year
hat passed without memorable instances ol the
slaughter of anti slavery men. The soil of Kan-
as is drunk with it; and Washington, the Very
eat of National Government, has become odious
for acta of bloody violence committed upon mem-
beiw and Senators " for words spoken in debate.
The death of Broderick, as he fell P,tfrt"eJ
throurh the Iunzs by the bullet ot Terry, on the
16th ult, adds but another victim.
Materials for a Rovanck. Twenty jyears
ago, says the X. Y. Trihun, a woman seduced
by a farmer in Albany, gave birth to a little girl.
She afterward went to Columbia county and
married a mechanic, while the farmer also wedded

to this city as a servant, and a short time since.

St. Locm Fair. The results of the Annual
Fair at St. Louis, which closed October 4th, were
highly satisfactory. The display of animals was
never perhaps equaled in this or any other
country. The array f machines, agricultural
implements, textile fabrics, and specimens of
handicraft generally, were unusually comirehen
ure; while tho varied fruits and tlowers were
Tery creditable to the horticultnral progress of
the West. The attendance on the grounds
during the entire seven days was unprecedented,
and the receipts amount to nearly 150,000. The

hasalai'st unat.imouly denounced the outrage
perpetrated by the Board of Supervisors, in ap
pointing certain ill-fiined fellows to the position
of Registers. Some of those so appointed, and
so complained of, are fresh from acts of ruflian-i-ni,
which have made their already notorious

Thi- was the motto of Mr. Sumner's great speech
in the Senate, in 1S.VJ, against the fugitive slave
law. At that time it was regarded as treasona
ble by the Sham Democracy ; but in Hj the
sentiment is re-echoed by the organ of Senator
Dougla. The Chicago Tim', in commenting
upon Mr. Dongla-'s Magazine article, says:
" Formerly it was the doctrine of the party,
that Slavery was t!n creature of the local law
not a child of the Federal Con-titution to

The M,,nitfur of the yth of September on
Italian affairs, ascribed to the pen of Louis Xa

many comments is neither more nor less than
the Kmperor's apology for the treaty of Villa
franc;!, followed by a confession that so far as
the settlement of Italian affairs is concerned, it
has failed entirely of the results which he ex
pected from it, and by a warning to the Italians
that since they have not been willing to accept
his arrangement of their affairs, they must make
up their minds to see Austria resume her old po

the State are reminded that thu school tax of
one mill on the dollar, was changed by the last

tax is not an increase of taxation in the aggre
gate, but takes the place of the dollar on each

A writer in the Tort Huron C&imerei!, in
relation to the long-agitated aad thread-bare

Jackson vienm. The Detroit 7r,Ae of Thurs-
day attributes tLe authorship of the artu ie to a
nominee ou the last Democratic State ticket. It
is a bitter and discriminating article, and well
calculated to provoke further discussion
a'I ;.,
the family ! I lere k is :
" We doubt his qualifications for a popular
Collector; that is, popular with those who will
have business transactions with him. We more
than quetio:i, too, whether his peculiar tact as
a politician points in that direction. But how
ever this may be, it is probable that those who
are urging him to the post, have been forced by
mere "stress of weather" to take shelter under
the lee of the Free Frtt. Xow, as a paitisun,
we object to any such "unholy alliance" on the
partot the Fne Pre. Mr. Storey would leave
a position w here he can dothe party great good,
to assume responsibilities which w candidly be
lieve are beyond his capacities; we mean that
his appointment would involve new discords,
beyond his capacity to harmonize. It is believed
by many that he might have nipped the whole
controversy i:i the bud. As editor of the only
"city organ," his silence under the grave accu
sations against Mr. Shoemaker, a personal and
political friend of years' standing, was construed
against the Collector. The article from the
Jackson Patriot demonstrates that this silence
wis not because there was nothing to say. Mr.
Shoemaker publicly alleges that Mr. Storey and
other "friends" repeatedly advised him against
making any ex-e whatever, until after an in
vestigation. It is also assumed that the Free
Pre lias carefully copied every little paragraph
bearing against the Collector from the Wa-hing-tou
correspondence t,f its exchanges, ami as
carefully excluded everything favorable to him.
" Xumbers of Democrats are so uncharitable
as to assert that Mr. Storey would at any time
risk party peace against personal gain. We say,
we regret that Mr. Storey has become personally
identified in the controversy; and we regret it
because the position jrives a deep color of truth
to nil such allegations, and to the not very hon
orable sequences resulting from tlu in. We re
gret it because Mr. Storey was beginning to be
quite well thought ot in the country, w here he
has never been remarkably popular; and by the
countrv press, bv whom he has (-en t-ordi illv
detested."
Si pplk-i n!'H Rrktrcrk ! 1 The Xew Yor k

says there is a " bautil'ul girl" in the chorus of
our Academy of Mn!e. Here is tho descrip
tion :
"She has ringlets of the most bewitching
'charachther,' and a nose a little t:ny bit sugges

of the linet noses of mo lern times. Her place
is on the rii.'ht-li i;,d fide of the stairc as you
look from the auditorium, and, not being riccus
tomed to the frotlights, she stands as straight
and stiff" as a statue. 1 think that she has no
joints iu her limbs for sin? never moves her arms,
not even to make the cufomary pump-handle
gestures. I think if she goes to Boston with
the Company, you will lecognie her and join
with me in 111 v admiration. I threw a bouquet
at her the other nL'ht, which fell near her
feet without attracting the slightest notice from
Iter, and w hich w as picked by up a lady in red anil
blue mtlslin, and cork-screw curls, uhobun-h-d
it, with an excruciating smirk, to t'ortesi."

in the excitement which alwavs exists at such

McEntyre, Bixble Jfc Co., the contractors for the
Government Public Store labor, he thought he
could be of service to be present.
And this deponent further rays, that he re
ceived a ticket to enter the hall w here the Con

to beloi.c to the political interest opposed to
Mavor Wood, from the fact that the ticket was

And this deponent further says, that if he had

have done what he did ; that he has no doubt it
was the intention of the person who told him to

he should push Mr. Alvord oil and not Mr

SijCATTER Soveriigntt. A Duceerit and able
review of the article of Judge Douglas La liar-
P?r's Magazine, has been Published recentlT br
The Old Bargain and Corruption Charge
Thurlow Weed publishes the following inte
resting matter in the Albany Journal:
Joun Otinct Apams and Hinrt Clay.
The Fret, in its obituary notices of the late Al
bert II. Tracy, refers to the old charges ol bar
gain between Mr. Clay and Mr. Adams. Though
this accusation is not generally believed, Mr.
Tracy's testimony may, just now, very properly
be introduced. We therefore submit the follow
ing extract from a letter written to us by Mr.
Tracy, dated Washington, Feb. 21, 1S25:
The Presidential question is of late becom
ing more spirited and interesting. Thc develop
ment of Mr. Clay's views, in favor of Mr. Adams,
although perfectly understood by some of us from
the Iteginning of the session, has produced great
consternation with both Jackson's and Crawford's
friends. Both suffered their own unfounded
hopes to delude them into a belief that he would
take ground on their side. What renders this
event the more gratifying, is the fact, which I
know to be true, that Clay's course has not been
1:1 the slightest degree influenced by any advan
ces or arrangements of a personal character. He
and Mr. Adams are in precisely the relationship
of intercom se that thev have been. It is alto
gether the result of the public state of things.
Indeed, it is hardly possible to conceive a pol.ti
cal man's acting with that perfect independence
which Mr. Adams docs. I am entirely 1:1 his con
fidence ; and I speak, therefore, with positive
knowledge, when I say that he neither has made
nor thought of making an overture to anv poliii-
tal man living. He rests his expectations, with
the most composed confidence, on the course of
events, turning neither to the right hand nor to
the left, to seek or avoid.

"Don't Stand on the Platform." Such is
the notice usually stuck up on the platforms of
railroad cars. It seems that railway coach plat
forms are not the only platforms that are dange
rous. The following incident, which occurred
while old Sam Houston was addressing a large
audience in Nacogdoches, is an illustration of the
truth:
Houston "I Lave told you that phitforms,
when they are used to blind people to the designs
ot men, are dangerous." Here a part of the
staging erected for the audience fell down, bring
ing a number of the sovereigns to the ground.

The Atlantic Mnthly. From the pen of
Dr. Oliver Wendell Holme, wC have in the
October Atlantic, the following tasteful stanzas:
Her h inds are col I; her face is white;
No more her pulse come and go;
IL-r eyes are abut to life and light ;
Fold the white vesture, snow on snow.
And lay her where the violets blow.
But not beneath a graven stone,
To plead for tears with alien eyes;
A slender crrs of wood alone
Shall say that here a maiden lies
In peace beneath the pca-eful akies.
And gray old trees of !iugt limb
Shall wheel their circling shadow g round
To make the scorching sunlight dim
That drinks the greenness from the ground,
And drops the dea l leaves on her mound.
When o'er their lioughs the Squirrels run.
And through their h aves the robins call.
And, ripening in the autumn sun,
The acorn and the chesnuts fall.
Doubt not that ahe will heed them all.
For he the morning choir rhall ring
Its matins from thc branches high.
And every minstrel-voice of spring.
That trills beneath the April sky,
Shall greet her with the earliest cry.
When, turning round their dial-track.
Eastward the lengthening shadows pass.
Her little mourners, clad in black,
The crickets, t-liding through the grass.
Shall pipe for her an evening mass.
At last the rootlets of the trees
Shall find the prison where she lies,
And bear the buried dust they seize
In leaves and blosoms to the skies.
So may the soul that warmed it ris
If any, frn of kindlier blood.
Should ark, What maiden lies below?
Say only this: A tender bul.
That tried to blossom in the snow.
Lies withered where the violets blow.
