Once at midnight sad and lonely, M'anderlnp; restless, aimless, only, Visaing thoughts that itllt pnriucd me, Tn a moonlit wood I strayed fuddenly a form that fltled me With dismay In tones that Infilled ran, And with snaky touch that chilled rae, Thero ray trembling footsteps stayed, drill; spectre t thus It mid. Listen mortal I must tell thee How a murderous death befol me, Whore I sought a night's rcposo i The moon was shining bright In beaten. The distant clock had peeled eleven ; Still the sleepless hours were dragging. When I heard a villain craven, Stealthily the door unclose. Swift a ponderous cudgel lifted, Dealt a crushing blow that rifted Sonl from body all unsbrlftcd, Sent In haste to meet its floJ i Lust for gold hli heart had cherished, Twai for this alono t perished, Thirst that damn, the soul that feels it, And to utter ruin seals It, Ripening it for deeds of blood. Hither my pale corse was hurried, Prutlsbly at midnight burled, Dirge nor prayer was said, nor chanted, Tear drop fell, nor bosom panted l Hot one sigh of parting sadness, 9t tha sobbings of the breere Tturs hare, fled, till dry and rotten. Like an autumn leaf forgotten. lWsttny ashes 'neath the trees. On his form tho moonbeams glistened. While appalled with fear I listened I "Hush, the clock Is tolling Iwclie."

To the church he led me quaking, Every joint wite horror shaking, Filled with cold and creeping dread. In procession slowly stalking, Two.by.lwo together walking. Onward moved the sheeted dead, Kaeh his proper place obseivtrur,, Jene from strictest erderswervlog, Ily their ancient pastor led. Up tha aisle they flitted noiseless. Hashed was all the air and voiceless, Save the echoes of tho bell ; These were heard still faintly ringing. Tor the music eeemod to swell. Through tho seats the ghosts were scattered, As they sat their dry bones clattered ; Fer I saw whero shrouds wore tattered. White bones glistening saw them well. Solemn liturgies were uttered, While shrouds in the night wind fluttered. The priest an ancient service read ; At length he closed the sacred volume, The organ pealed an anthem solemn, To his grave each goblin wended, I by morning light befrleaded, flUJ to find my vlgels ended, Woke to find myself In bed. IDceklg Ixct press. BURLINGTON, FRIDAY, SEPT. 7, 1855. l'.lection. The ltcsult. Full returns from all the Towns in this County are not yet roceived, but enough to show that all the candidates on the Republican Ticket were elected, with tho possible exception of Dr. J. Peck, one of tho candidates for Assis tant Judge. Between htm and Mr. Harmon the run is apparently a close one. Thcro may be slight inaccuracies in some of the returns ; but tho doubt rests on the vote of the town not yet heard from. Wo give tho rote for Senators only as far as we havo received them. As to the causes of the chief irregu larities, we need say nothing to-day. Most of them hare been pointed out during the last few days, and we shall in due time have something to say of tho moro prominent ones. Our returns are rcry inoompleto, but the success of the Republican ticket as a whole, throughout tho State, is beyond all question, and by ft large majority. Some rep resentatives aro returned to us with tho mark k. n. alone, and wo leave them so till we hare more preciso information. No "doubt many returned as republicans aro or have been attached to tho lodges of the American party, but wero electod without any reference to that circumstance. BENNINGTON COUNTY. Hoye-A. Ciirk.

Warner, Dom. yl Scattering 12 Total, 523 Kdmund's majority, 107 The vote, it will be noticed, is erv lio-ht nearly 100 less than tho vote of last year. wmcn was ny no means a full one. Tho re election of the Republican tickot was a fore eone conclusion in the minda of all. and mn of its supporters accordingly consulted their ease, ratner than their duty, and stayed at home. The Domoerats, as usual, polled their full strength. Tho Democratic vote on the State ticket last year was 193. TTo should have been rejoiced to see as full a vote as that of last year, but a majority of nnr hundrtd and wen, places Burlington with sufficient positivencse, upon the right side. Tho New Jersey Itnllrond Accident. The appalling rail-road accident in New Jersoy, on Wednesday last, gives another caso of that gross mismanagement which tho history of rail-roading in this country has so often shown. In tho first place, by a vicious rule, which never oughtto exist on any road, two troinB aro found moving at high speed to wards each other on a Bingle track when and whero a collision was momentarily to bo lookedor, unless uuo should hear or see tho other in time to stop its own motion, and to retreat out of the wny. In the next placo one train is hastily stopped and run back. iroro'i.without tho least care by the engineer, as it appears, whether anything is in the way, and at u rate of from 15 to 25 miles an hour, this too where thcro is a much travellod road crossing near by, and in a town where the law forbids u speed of more than ix miles an hour. Tins i-onduetor gives but a hasty glance, and before he is aware or dun ger thq cars nro piled into a heap, and twenty human beings arc killed outright or wounded to death, and seventy or more maimed fir lile or otherwiso wounded. Tho papers havo been tilled with tho details of cvidenoo on the subject much of it being of no sort of consequence, as usual, and not a little wildly irrelevant; but tho whole show, ing to our view a guilty disregard of prerau. Hon on the part of thoso in charge ol the train, to an uncommon degree, Whether Dr. Heinaken, whoso horses wero just in time to bo struck by the cars pushed backwurds at in- ram 01 irom j ,ouu to v.llO Tecl in a min ute, wnsor was not incautious, does not affect the conclusion, in our view. The train haing just passed, travellers on the high way would of courao asume that on a single track there could Iw no sperial dunger in crossing.

But the singular featuro about this is, that because some of us, who aro truly Anti Nebraska inon, aro offended at the language that expresses doultt of tho necessity for nn American organization, wearo about by our division of the Republican strength, to play into tho hands of a party that solemnly and formally declares in County Convention, as follows "Kimhil, That In tho so-called K.

According to tho Oswego Journal which gives tho particulars oT tho horrid tranrtiction, tho family consisted of Mark and Mary Fitrgcraldi, and their three tons, Patrick, John nnd James, ngeel 22, 1R nnd 1 1 years, respectively. John, tho murderer, it would beem, U n wayward youth, mid h.d but recently been in tho Auburn Jail for horso stealing. His father, not long before, bad raised u hundred dollars by 11 mortgago on his farm, und obtained tho rele.ise of his unnatural son. A son of Mr. Fitzgerahls died, and was buried on the27th of lust May. John would not uttend tho funeral, but ridi culed tho ceremony, (bis puronti being Catholics) nnd remarked, if ho hud 11 gun, he would shoot the cross from off tho hearse. This, coming to his father's ours. n would t,u supposed, displeased Inm very much, anil einco that timo John's hatred to his parents bus been gradually 011 tho increase till the final consummation of this hellish deed.

Tho introduction of this woman into Court was a bold movement, und there were fears that a collision would ensue, iniMuuch ns tho L'nited Statue authorities avowed their intention of taking hvr as u fugitive lave.

To-day the exciting case of Wheeler nnd tho Commonwealth agt. Ilill.ird, Monro nnd other colored men, was continued. You will reuiemeKr that when it was callcdon Monday, not a singlo witness for tho prosecution was present 1 Mr. Wheeler was not to bo seen ; the rumor was circulated that ho had gone to Nicaragua, and his name had even been pub lished among the passengers on u ateatner there. This rnic for weakening tho defence had a partial effect on tho popular interest in thu case. Hut yesterday tho w itnesses vv ero lie.u lv nil at their mst, nnd prominent nmon'g iin.ui il.o unot.mg minister, the great bereft. This was intended, I suppose, partly for theatrical effect. During the day rumors wero circulated that two warn.uts had been issued, on Wheeler's oath, for the arrest of Jane John son one for her as his fugitive slave, and the second (oh ' tdmuie on tho pettifogging min ister !) lor having committed the larceny of a part of her wearing npparrd.ii trick lirst in vented by some southern quit bier for the li-n-efit of the conscieneo of tho Governor of Vir ginia, Hut whether all tho rumors wero true or not, certain it is that all day yesterday and to-day the court-room was in Irs ted by thrill I d'eil sl.iv ( hounds kept about tl'e I S.

Hut this had hardly begun when a movement was ob-ervrd among u group of ladies, ami Jnno Johnson came forward, accompinieil by Mrs. f.uereti 1 Molt, Mrs. RcLerci I'lunilcy, Mrs. .Mi'Kiin and Miss barah K 1'iigh, luur'ol the most rospeetnlilo ladies id' our citv Sho i.s cended tho witness box amid tho deepest i-eii-t,ation of an iiiiiucnso audience. Somo min utes elapsed before orelrr and silencis were i suflicieiitlv rcstoied to proceed. The freed woman stooel confronted with her latemaster. Her testimony was simply and naturally delivered. Jane is a fino specimen of tho best class nf tirginri nousemaius witn 1. certain i.idv-iiKe air, propriety of language and timidity of I I truth, tearing to tatters all tho ingeniously devised lies of the prosecution as to her " for cible abduction. " Poor Wheeler' For the fir.-t time 1 pitied that unlbrlunato man. He I had taken a prominent position inside of the clerk's dcsR, where every eve couhl read his shnine. When Jano first appeared, lie laughed immoderately nnd nervousK, then ! became deadly pale," nnd as tho testimony I went on, red and palo by turns. At last, bo could bear it no longer, hut picked up his hat I and disappeared. i At the conclusion of her testimony, Jmc retired Irom the court-room. She was accom i p.inied to the carriage by officer Georgo Cor i son, who had her unde'r ch irge under sub I poona from the court, Mr. MeKim nnd Mrs. 1 Liierelia Mott. The way to tho carriage was I lined by n strong body o! policeman, placed , thero by order ot Dist. Attoruesy Mann and Judgo Kelloy. Strong apprehensions were entertaine-d of an attack by tho Tinted 1 btiitoe .Marshal ami his deputy slave-catchers. It seems to be true that Unifed States Attor ney Vandyke was prepared with a warrant I for her arrest, but his courage paled beforo I the stern determination ol District Attorney 1 Mann and Judge Kelley to vindicate this dig j nity of tho courts of Pennsylvania If an ut- i.iea. iinu oeeii liiaiie uy ivanu s Oiooilliounds, it wuuld have been received by one hundred as true hearts und mnnlv breasts as e'xist in the old Keystone State. ' Hut the Marshal and his men, who thought it gn-at ciiort to shoot lit Will. 'I'll. on., u ?,. ,i... ..ci... Susquehanna, went quietly hack to their dens when they found themselves face to faeo with tlio freemen of Pennsylvania, In conclusion, gentlemen, l" congratulate ' you on tho fact that one Court in Peimsyl I vauia has vindicated tho honor of her 1 iws, j 'ind I felicitate myself that onco moro I feel , a throb of pride in being n ritir.cn of tho Mate , of Franklin. South Carolina law or Kane law has loft its power in the limits ol old Pennsylvania, In fact, as well as tl.eorv. it is demonstrated, that if a slave once touches Pennsylvania soil by consent of the master, the chains full froni him, and he stands re deemed, regenerated and disenthralled by the genius of her freo institutions.

Tho following is Judgo Kulloy's chargo to tho jury, in t!,o case of tho negroes charged with ri it in as sisting the slave Juno tu escape It is lain and straightforward, and cloes Judge Kelley credit. Ho said (lentlemen of the Juru You are about to conclude the trial nf theso men for riot, and assault and battery. Did these parties com ' mit a riot or an assault ' 'This case is verv important in its relations, howeirr trivial in itself; it has caused much excitement. You j and I ought to be I'rco Irom this 1 trust wc are You unlet be eutiilied of guilt beyobd a manly, reasonable doubt beforo conviction of these defendants. Tho legnl status of the parties is a matter of inquiry in this case. I l.e Judge read from the books tho law upon tho rasa of riot. You mustdeterniiuowhethcr thoo men went to do a lawful act Haji.ily, ns the question is un important one, I am not called to consular this question hnstilv, but after much thought day and nigh't.

I accept as part of inv charge tho lawns given you by tho District Attniimr. Tho Judgo then read tho art of 17ed, and also thr act of March .1, 147 A man may I bring bis sivr into this .State, but he makes him a free man thereby, for lie ninv not de- , t.am l.iui nnv lime whatever A slave cannot , by virtues of the laws uf this State, romain i upon its soil. The object of the not was to remove every i ivv irom the statute boot Horn which ingenuity rouhl mako it appe-ar that slavery could in any way exist hero. A riot isa conspiracy, with tho element oft imult, calculated to inspires terror. It requites three people, with a common intcnt,nnd con. duct that r.itises teiror. 1 sh ill not rceull tho evidence tho facts are for you. You will link Did tlirso men go to th boat with a l.evvlul purposo ' Did the woman desim their us.i,tunrr ' or did tlu'V forcibly aliduct hrr 1 II she did want to go you must judge of tho amount of forco used. If you uro satisfied tint they only went to tell Jano sho wus free, und conduct her to n place oT safe ty, and acted peacefully, you cannot fiud tnem guilty. Tho Judgo defined uu assault und battery It is any violent or ofTcindro laying hands on a person. It cannot b elc nicd that hands were laid on Col Wheeler, but it is claimed by tho defences th it tho im position of hands was only of that gentle character which tho law iccognizcs. The evielenco regarding I lit) threat was thcai ex amined by Judgo Kelbsy. If you find tlio common intent jou will convict all if you do not, you will inquire what violent act was coiiimitteil, and by whom, and render it ver dict accordingly The case is now vv ith you, gentlemen.

'a o tl s l 'it a s"rii n of .i tori's by John Martin h ive li.-er, n exhibition in lstidon, and havo attracted considerable in terest among arlit mid amateurs. I am sure you havo all noticed an oil print of "Iblidiazznr's Feast" which friend Sxitii usee! to keep in b'n shop wiudo't when I was last in Burlington ifl mistake not, there was also a print of tho " Fall of Nineveh,'' both subjects conce.iveil in a stylo which homo of you may huvo thought sublime, somo ter rific, others too glaring and extravagant to be deeply suggjtlves. In precisely tho nrac stylo nf conception and execution are tie three pictures "grand and s,lcmn pictures'" as they aru announced of "Tlio Last Judg. nieut," " The groit day of his wrath", and " Tho Plains of Heaven". bv the same Artist I,l 1 I nr..,l.l nni ti",;s,: ,i.... ,i grand centre pio'.ej of tho series, tho other two being expansions of the view on tho right and left of tlio greit judgment scene. There is the great whito throne and him that sat on it: the four and twenty elders about the throne sitting, clothed in white raiment with crowns of gold on thoir heads and aboveall, .i luminous circle representing the Supreme. Beneath lies tho city of Jerusalem. Over all the left of the scene a lurid light is throw n from the moon now "turned into blooJ." The first resurrection is supposed to bo past the nations ol the four quarters of the earth and . tho nrinics of Gog nnd Mngng arc pouring down to the valley of Jeboshapbat to besiego i the city of Jerusalem. Suddenly thu trumpet of judgment is sounded lightning comes 1 down from Heaven nnd nn earthquake rends 1 the vallny, anl separates the Holy city and I Mount Zion from the enemy. Now 1 put it , to you whether in spite uf the awfulne-ss of j the subject, you could repress a smilo when I you remarked two or tbrr" loaded trains puffing into the foreground with their passen gers, and one actually switched off into the I opening abyss ' I suppose these were elis ! signed to indicate that Gng nnd Magog wero I purposing to 11 prosecute the siege with vigor." In the imniedi ite foreground on the lelt.nre personifications of all thu deadly sins, in which, mitres, cassocks, surplices, scarlet and cowls, figure largely ns drapery, Every conceivable phase oT the terrific is exhausted I on the countenances unei postures of the doomed " Somes arc overwhclmcti by the earthquake and swept down into the bottom, less pit some cruhrd by the falling moun tains, or bl isted by tho lightning ; and others abandoned to grief, horror and elespair at tbe-ir eternal doom. Tho earth is trembling, tottering, crumbling, sinking into universal ruin " On the right, in the furrgroiind, are gathered tlio Messed awaiting tho consumma tion of their felicity In tho mean time, how ever, Mr. .Martin has made tho most distin guished of them sit for their portraits. I'n fortunately, in order lo attitudinize for our benefit, they are ohlig'd to turn their backs upon the judgment scene, so that instead of gazing with rapt and absorbing expectation on the spcctucle in the heavens, they look at I "s '" 'lsl.t " fll-eMnscii.mly as the por- 1 irnit.s on our wans i onspicuous in the midst of a little American cliejuo is the htu irt Washington, lu another part we re. cvguizte the Chandsi Shakspearc, Reynold's Johnson, B.acon iu bis high-pcaked lint and frills.

T!i Great DiyiiT his Wrath" is con. ceiled nt a stylo which .it the first glance a p. palls und terrifies, h ing an ucciimul ilion of nil tins most startling and threatening images which a hold iiiugm m .11 could dnw to gether. Hut after we have looked a lew ,n i meiits and bad time to analyze the impres sion produced on us, we liud that our imagin ations nnd feelings have i,..,h played iissii by a rueb hand, tlmt our sensibilitie s lave been shocked aud harroned by u violent disepl.tr of the coarsest instruments oT terror. Cities and mountains nro tumbling headlong into the abyss stars are falling from heaven affrighted kings und great men, rich men, bondmen and freemen, aro biding themselves iu dens nnd calling cm the rocks to cover them. All this is depleted in tho most uwful and icvedting manner. It cannot be elcnied that the artist has in this picture shown great power but it is displayed so wautonly, so like lucre brute Torco, that wo instinctiu- lyrrroil I'roiu an exhibition so entirely nlien to the eloninin ol ,rt. I The "PI line of lie iron" would bo moro up propriitely christened, "a Fairies' Picnic." v- 'a ninuiivo n-eiio in Heaven It is siinp'y II lie.ilous.

Tho colors aro all bright rv u tod U'ling , tho light is'gaiish' , tho whole scene voluptuous, extravagant, and worst than all, earthy in every part Having heard the opinion hazarded that theso pictures were not only wonders of nil nginallMj art, but were adapted lo in . do feelings of dorp solemnity in this beholder, I set about considering why it was that lir only impression produced on mo wus oii"io nearly nppro.ir.hing to disgust. In tlio fir t place, I saw In them nn evident straining after tho Fiildime, n rasli nnd, it seenud t i mo, impudiut ambition to scalo the mos' aw ful inystcrie.s with wings not given to tin n -1 hero nro rwnos and pi ices in which "iiiirU trcmblo while they gaze," but there was something in thes pictures which const intly suggested tho Mist tint tins artist sbr i''c from nothing, that ho bad not that deep s i creel reeling which forbidscven tho imngina tion to penetrate into nil sc?nes,t'iat hobeildly claimed to havo rushed in ami gazed unv Inshed where nngels fear to trcnel. I do not so much refer to tho subject matter as to tho manner of tho pictures for Dante, Milton, nnd Michael Angelo have ventured on tho saino scenes.
