There ia no doubt from the various feats of
rascality perpetrated in this city, within a few
days past, that we have among us a set of des
peradoes " fatally bent on mischief.' A few
nights ago, the Western Stage was robbed of
two trunks, almost within the corporate limits
of the city, and, almost at the very same spot
a night 01 two after, a valuable trunk was cut
from the travelling Carriage ot Samuel Simp
son, Esq. of Newbern. One night, the pre
sent week, a wagouer, who had encamped in
the Baptist Grove, was knocked down while

made off. On Tuesday night last about S
o'clock, as a Mr Hughes of this county was
passing through Capitol Square with his saddle-bags
on his arm, he received a violent
blow which felled hirn to the earth, where he
would, probably, soon have died from loss of
blood and strangulation, had not the noi.se he
made attracted the attention of passers-by !
And on Wednesday night last, we learn there
was an attempt to fire a Houses on Harnett
Street.' &

One circumstance, among the many of a
touching character which attend the presence
of a mortal epidemic in a city, is thus refened
to in the New Orleans Picayune of the 12th
instant :
The Unattended Hearse. Among the
rnany scenes to be now daily witnessed in
this city, which excite our sympathy, awaken
our commiseration or enlist our pity, an un
bonded hearse, as it bears its lifeless burthen
to the grave, calls up most quickly from the
recesses of the heart thoughts shrouded in
Sorrow -feelings robed in regret.

to the grave-yard with his pulseless passenger

to perform the last sad rites o'er departe

nark ot recognition over the deceased's grave,
we feel lhat the inhabitant of that rou"h, un-

But we know not how he lived whether

whether he was once the inheritor of wealth -

we pray heavea to avert from us a death so

The" dignity of the State is insulted by the
ofFerj and betrayed by the acceptance ; and
the living principles for which the fathers of
the country fought and bled, are drowned in
a glass of vile liquor. The practice is iu
fact so deeply censurable, that we can hardly
find language sufficiently forcible for its con
demnation ; and we are heartily glad to per
ceive, that in some parts of the State the peo
ple are taking measures to abolish it where it
had existed, and to prevent its adoption where
there is reason to apprehend its introduction
, i i
or revival. Wherever such measures, being
proper ones, may be taken, we wish them
success. We are most heartily ashamed,
tired, sick, of hearing parties, after elections,
through their agents and organs, mutually de
nouncing each other, lugging erojr shops in
to their denunciations, as a means used to
corrupt the franchise, poison legislation at its
pource, nnng tree popular government into
contempt, and the national character into dis
grace. Let monarchical candidates for mem
bers of parliament " keep open houses " for
corruptible "free-holders" if they will it is
their vocation ; but let our freemen feel the
intoxicating influence of no electioneering
spirit, save that of pure patriotism ; there will
then be no cause to grumble and resort to
recrimination at the results of elections.
Baltimore Sun.
Casavet.l Countv. The editor of this
frapcr has had the pleasure of pet forming a
short tour through Caswell, and at every stage
nf his travels, the reflection was constantly
forcing itself on his mind, " What a pitty
euch a public spirited community should be
so thoroughly loco-foco !" It is but sheer
justice to the people of this enterprising little
county, to eay, that they can rank among the
first counties in this State, in intelligence,
patriotism and public spirit. The country is
dotted with fine farm houses, and the land
every where under the best cultivation ; while
the citizens exhibited a liberality, hospitality
and enterprising spirit, that have forced this
tribute fiom the humble writer of this article,
vho has the misfortune to differ widely with
most of them in political views. But it is
cheering to think, and proves indeed that
fours are the plans of fair delightful peace,"
that however widely different communities
tnay think in politics, and however high party
strife may run, whigs and democrats, may
very where meet beueath the same hospitable
roof and sit round the same social board, and
forget in on common feeling of patriotism
end brotherly love, all party rancour and par
ty prejudices. Oxford .Mercury.
Treating the Voters.
The practice of "treating at elections'
end at other times during the campaign as it
is often called, which amounts to the same
thing, has heretofore p:evailed very extensive
ly in this country. Indeed so great an evil
bad it become, in the estimation of the pore,
the? moral and the patriotic, that laws, we be
lieve, have been enacted in some of the States,
either directly or indirectly prohibiting the
practice,- but whether this be really so or not,
it is quite certain that popular opinion has set
strongly against it of late years, in ma ny parts
of the country. Tantamount to bribery, it
has a corrupting influence on the subjects of
if. whirh taints the Durity of the elective fran
chise, and mars the efficiency and power of
the ballot-boxes. Men who can be seauceo
by donation of liquor, who are so degraded
as to be capable of bartering their birth-right
the precious privilege of a free votefor a
glass of rum, are not fit to be trusted with an
individuals share of the sovereignty of a State.
Snch a one is fit only to be the serf or vassal
of a feudal lord, and "is by no means suitable
company for free republicans assembled at
the polls. Where such a practice prevails,
the laws, asemanating from an impure source,
are deprived of much of the respect that would
be paid them if it did'net exist. The treat
ing candidate is not looked up to, if success
ful, as a proper agent to carry out pure princi
ples in legislation. He is supposed to repre
sent his constituents; and when they prove
themselves corrupt, he furnishing the means
of debauching them, the honest and patriotic
cannot be expected to respect either him or

Another Convention to form a new Con
stitution for Rhode Island, assembled on the
2d, at Providence. It is the third which has
convened for the same purpose within a few
years, and although the other two have been
unsuccessful, public opinion has demanded
another, and if a Constitution is put. forth,
suited to the wants of the people, the present,
the Journal says, may be deemed a favorable
time for its adoption. There seems to be
pretty general dissatisfaction expressed at the
feature in the present Constitution, requiring
a property qualification from every voter.
These conventions are without the sanction
of the Legislative authority, but public opin

Shipwreck and Loss of Life.
We learn, says the New York Commercial
of Thursday, from our attentive correspon
dents of the Warren (R. I.) Star, that the
whale ship Mariton ai rived at that port on
the2Sth Octoberj in latitude 31, 21, longitude
63, 50, fell m with two rafts ; on one of them
there were 14, and on the other 2 men.
They were the remaining part of the officers
and crew of the brig William and Joseph, of
Tisbury, Martha's Vineyard.
From the statements of those on the rafts it
appears that the William and Joseph capsized
in a hurricane on the morning of October 21.
The masts broke by the deck, after which the
vessel i ighted. Two of the crew were swept
overboard at this time. The remainder were
on deck for six days, during which time they
prepared the rafts, and took to them imme
diately before the vessel sunkv
The follow are the names of the persons
saved:

ATMOSPHERIC VACUUM ENGINE.
The Louisville Advertiser notices a new
invention by Mr Lanning, of that city, which
would be invaluable, if the principle could be
successfully applied to the propelling of heavy
machinery. It is an engine which is put into
operation by atmospheric air, dispensing with
boilers, water, and steam, and putting all dan
ger of explosion out of the question. It is
thus described :
" In its construction it is exceedingly sim
ple. Two tubes, or chimneys capable of
bearing a pressure of fifteen pounds to the
inch, are placed perpendicularly over a stove
or furnace, from which a flues leads to each.
The flues have valves at each end. A fire is
lighted iu the furnace, the blaze of which as
cends into one of the chimneys, the other be
ing closed by the valves. This rarities the
air which rushes through a pipe into a com
mon cylinder, and moves the piston.
"The action of the engine shuts the first
flue, in which a vacuum is created, while the
heat and propelling force are changed to the
other ; producing the reversed motion. Thus
heated air is applied to the common engine
in the same manner as steam. With a slight
fire we saw the engine put in motion, and,
though but a rough model and upon a small
scale, it afforded sufficient power to drive a
common fanning mill, or wheat cleaner, with
considerable . rapidity. It will require less
fuel than is necessary in working a steam-
engine, no water, no boilers. We under
stand that the inventor has received liberal
proposals already, from men of capital, who
have confidence ia its complete success."

Suicide. We learn from the Eastern Ar-
that Mr Daniel Caldwell, a farmer in
Augusta, Maine, committed suicide on Satur

Riot at New Haven. The students at
Old Yale - have been creating a disturbance
of a very serious character at New Haven.
It appears that on Saturday last the Fire De
partment of that city turned out with their 8
engines for inspection and review.
The students, Who were engaged in playing
at foot ball upon the Green, determined that
the hose should not be laid across the Green,
and in the face of the public authorities who
had assembled to witness the performance,
successfully kept possession of the Green,
and drove off the Department.
Soon after 12 o'clock on Sunday night, a
gang of students, in disguise, made a rush
upon the engine house, and almost entirely
demolished a beautiful machine, called the
Washington, which was entirely new, and
ornamented with a beautiful portrait of the
Father of his country. About 200 feet of
hose were also deliberately cut and destroyed.
While this was going on, the city watch
rallied, but were assailed with brickbats and
other missiles, and so overpowered by num
bers that their services were inefficient, and it
was not until the alarm bells were rung and
the citizens began to turn out, that the rioters
dispersed.
