Harruiiirg, Saturday, Jan. 2b.
Yesterday. Mr. Guernsey* of the Judiciary
Committee, (repreaeating with Mr. lves the 18th
Senatorial District, composed of the Counties o'
JTioga, Elk, Potter, McKeau and Clearfield,) re?
ported the bill to repeal certain sections of the
anti-Kidnapping laws, with a recommendation
that it be nogatived.
Mr. Mi hlenbxrg of 1!? rki moved that the Sen
ate proceed to the consideration of the bill; upon
which motion the Yeas and Nays were demand?
ed, and the bill laid on the tat>k by a vote of Yeas
16, Nays 17.
In tbe House of Representatives a similar elf ort
is being made, the Committee on the Judiciary
having reported, as committed, the Act read in
place by Gen. Brinple of Lycoming. This will
five you some idea of the simultaneous effort to
push these bills through tho Legislature, although
I am sanguine the bill of which the following is a
copy can never pass both Houses i
Section 1. Beit enacted. ?\> That the third, fourth an 1
fifth secuoos of tho Act endued ' Ao Act u> prevent Kid?

In connection with thia great question, we had
a Fugitive Slave case yesterday before U. S. Com
misaiouer McAllister, almost under tho eaves of
the Capitol at noonday. The Daily American*
published at this place during the Session, and
said to be the organ of Gov Johnston, evinces its
delight at the quietness which characterised tho
whole procecdinga, by chronicling thia aa the third
or fourth case which has occurred under tho Fu?
gitive Slave I.nw, and the fugitive delivered

Mr. Killinqek of Lebanon called up the Joint
Resolutions introduced by Mr. Dobbins relative to
the Tarn). Considerable flutter was made by the
nnterrilied on this very important subject, involv?
ing alike their fealty to party and an oft-betrayed
constituency. An effort waa made to choke the
?ubject off, but thia was met by a peremptory call
of the Yeas and Nays for the consideration of the

Amehioan 8ka Captair at Hatti.?We learn
from the Messrs. Lewis, of this city, owners of the
brig Leander, that Capt. Mayo, the former com?
mander, ia now on his way to this city from Ber?
muda, via Halifax Some of the crew have al?
ready arrived at New-York. The Leander, it will
be remembered, was lost at sea on the way from
Cape Haytien to Boaton, and the crew taken iuto
Bermuda. Helative to the imprisonment of Capt.
Mayo, at Cape Haytien, we have the following
particulars i Capt. Mayo applied to the authorities
of Cape Haytien to arrest one of bis crew who
had deserted. The man waa arrested, placed in
jail, and afterwards delivered up to tho captain.
Tbe man swore to ha revenged, and shortly after?
wards gave information to the Haytien authorities
that Capt. Mayo bad smuggled $9,000 worth of
dry goods into that port. Though the whole cargo
of tbe Leander amounted to leas than the alleged
value smuggled, yet Capt. May o was arrested by
the authorities of the port, and thrown into the
common criminal prison, a place of most disgust?
ing filth and misery, where from three to five
hundred negroes are at times in contincment.
To a petition from the I'- S. Agent, that he
might be confined fan the fort, the answer was
that it was too good a place for a "white" man
Here Capt. Mayo remained six days, and was at
length released without examination, the authori?
ties having become convinced or the grouudless
ness of the charges againat him. The 0 8. Agent
then made a formal demand for damages, and so
alarmed were the authorities that Prince Bobo,
the chief in command, was about to grant it,
when Baron La (iroue arrived from the Capital.
He also assented to the justice of the claim, but
said it could not be paid without an order from
the Kmperor, with whom cash is quite scarce at
present. A short time since an English schooner
at Aox Caves received and obtained from the
Hay tien Government B.r>,0(>0 damages for a less
aggravated outrage. It is a singular fact, that the
man who thus oejustly aecus-d Capt Mayo, died
on tbe passage home of fever, contracted while in
tbe prison at Cape Haytien [Boat. Trav 15th.

FroinvK Slave Law.?A'iion of the First
Presbyterian Church of Chicacto.?The First Pres
by terian Church of Chicago, 111, recently passed a
series of strong resolutions in opposition to the
Fugitive Slave Law. They argue that the forci
ble return of persons to bondage, after they have
escaped from it ia in all cases wrong. and a repeti?
tion of the original wrong of enslaving them j and
no whit less criminal than the first stealing or
buying them on the coast of Africa The reasons
put forward in support of this proposition are i
Ftrttt Slavery is based upon might not right;
men being made slaves, and continued so by force
alone, whether that force be legalise^ or lawless.
And inasmuch as that force can beget no right the
condition of slavery ceases whensoever the slave
escapes from the territory where slave-law exists;
as an Algerine captive in IMS would cease to be ]
a captive the moment he escaped from the Alger
ine territory i and for Tunis or Tripoli to have
given up such an escaped captive would have been
no less an outrage than the first capture
Secondly : That such enslaving of men is direct?
ly opposed to the law of love, since no man can
forceJback a fugitive into alavery in the exercise
of love and good will to> him.

XT "The Women or Israel, by Gmri
A 11 ?i;. (2 voll. l'Jmo. D. Appleton A Co.) ia a
gkiwing tribute to the female worth described in
the Scriptures, and recorded io subsequent j?>r
tions of the Jewish history. It is written with
earnest eloquence, and deep religious and patri
otic feeling. The following passage with regard
to the condition of domestic service among the
ancient Jews throws light on a subject which has
recently been much discussed by theological Pro?
fessors and Doctors of Divinity.
Some over-refined natures are horrified at the
idea of being sold to service?of tlx' very term of
tlare (the Hebrew word, by the way, sig?
nifies sen-ant oxd'/wrstic also; | and taking np the
position that the law of Motes countenanced sirai
far traffic as tbe slave trade in all its modern hor
rors, make it the grand objection to regarding the
religion as the revelation of God. Yet no one who
rea'ly studies the Word of God, can entertain an
idea so erroneous fora moment. Perpetual slavery
?tbe awful sacrifice of all home i fie*tioiis, all hu?
man emotions, that horrible system which permit?
ted man to regard his brother man as a beast of
the field, to be bought and sold, live and die at his
will?was utterly unknown in Israei. The term
'? selling" a son or daughter, simply signified the
receivingLefonhand the price of six years' labor,
in which six years the slave (so called) was equal
to bis master in every thing but actual labor. Ho
was to share in every feast, every rejoicing, ait at
bis master's table, listen to the law, accept every
convenant of God, be clothed, fed, and cared for,
and at the term of his release be so liberally treat
ed iidividually, as to enable him, if he pleased, to
quit service, and enter into independent business
for himself, or remain,from pure affection or rolun
lai q rehnijni*hmn't of freedom, for ever with his
master. This was tbe actual state of slavery in
Israel, productive of a three-fold good. It saved
many a parent from beholding the utter destitu?
tion of bis children ; gave him the means of work?
ing for himself by the price received for their six
years'lal>or ; assured him of their temporal and
spiritual welfare and of their being cared for, on
their release, far better than he could for them,
I much as he loved them ; prevented all those hor?
rible incentives to crime and misery produced by
tbe abject destitution of many a Gentile land;
united master and servant in the aweet aud holy
ties of brotherhood, a'ike of religion, tribe, and
land , subject to one law, worshipping one God,
caring for tbe helpless and the weak, and
making every household where the laws of
God were obey ed one of heavenly harmony and
love. In Israel there was no surplus of hands
of work ; none of those fearful temptations to
sin in being thrown r ut of employ, in the ina?
bility to meet the heavy taxes and other drains
upon the poor. The law in its every item spoke
of God, and revealed Him as a God of love. Ho
alone could have framed statutes entering into
every man's household, guided his conduct from
bis parents to his very servants : shielding com
passionatinp, loving every individual ia Israel,
from the high priest to the lowest slave.
py "The Islaed WoBtn of the Pacific,"
by Hknrv T. Chkever, is a record of personal
observations made at the Sandwich Islands and
other parts of Poly nesia, during a recent tour.?
Tbe volume presents a mass of information with
regard to the history, geography, and commercial
aud political condition of those islands, brought
(iown to tbe present time, and digested into a
compact and readable form Mr. Cheever writes in
an easy and often careless stylo, but seems to have
well considered hie facts, which have a general
air of authenticity. His book cannot fail to be
widely read during the present excitement in re?
gard to everything connected with the Pacific
Ocean. We do not consider its value enhanced
by the flux of common-place poetical quotations,
with which it is inundated, nor by tie stale
moralizingi which are lugged in on every con
> venient and inconvenient occasion. The impa?
tient reader must often be tempted to beseech the
author to goon with his story and let him do the
leflecting for himself. (ltaaO pp. 406. Harper A

CP" "Poms or Sentiment vnd Im_ai.ini.
tion," by Frances A. and Metta V. Fuller, is
a collection of the poetical writings of two young
sisters of the West, who have already gained a
flattering distinction among the female authors of
this country. Presented to the critical public
with a graceful timidity as the " first offering of
young hearts," it would he an invidious task to
dwtll too severely on their defects. It cannot be
concealed that they betray a want of experience
t and of high artistic culture. but their genuine
naturalness, their healthy fervor of feeling, their
vigor and boldness of thonght, and their frequent
felicities of expression, evince a richness of na?
ture and a true poetic inspiration, which give no
presage of future mediocrity, ("vo pp. '-61. A

Mr. Morgan, we believe, was a native of Scot
laud, but long resident in this city. He was a
stone cttti r by occupation, and an unmarried man.
He left very considerable real estate. The plain?
tiff, we believe, is a nephew ami one of the next
of kin. He sues to set aside the will on the ground
that it is void by law, the estate having be-jn tied
up, (being what is called suspending the power of
alienation,) for a term of years, instead of the ar?
rangement being one or two lives, the former be?
ing against the statute.
The Court, in rendering its decision, said it had
struggled in vain to think there was no suspen
si on of the power of alienation. It thinks the
law, es it stands, defective and inconvenient. It
fortunately happens that the estate reverts to good
bands, the heirs being poor, Ac.

This note lias been sued, we believe, only within

ing that his debts should be paid, and that aaid
clause formed a trust under the will, Ac which
does not come within the statute of limitations.
The Court, in giving itsdecision, stated thatthe
usual clause in a will "after tho payment of my
just debts," Ac. is not UK h a ( lause as to create a
trust?and particularly would it not be in the will
of Mr Smith, who evidently considered that there
would be more than enough personal property to
pay all tbe debts of the estate. So far as the will
is concerned, therefore, there is nothing to bar of
the statute of limitations running against tho
