Barrettc, of Clearfield county, appeared, presented his Commission from Governor Bigler, as President Judge of this Judicial District, was sworn by the Prothonotary, and en tered upon the discharge of his duties. The titne of the Court thus far, has been occupied with the case of the Common wealth vs. Andrew Piphcr, charged with liavtng set fire to a large stack of Bark, on or about the Sth of September last, in Price township. We are unable to-day, to lay before our readers the facts in this cate, but will endeavor to do so in our next, and will also furnish a full report of all matters disposed of at this' term. Judge Barrette The manner in which this gentleman has 0 fardischarged his duties, has left a most favorable impression upon the minds of a large majority of those who have had an opportunity of hearing and seeing him. His personal appearance is decidedly prepossessing. He is a well read lawyer, and we believe possesses all the qualifica tions to make him an eminent and popu ular Judge, and a favorite with all who m3y have official business to transact be fore him.

All the necessary arrangements have been made for the speedy completion of the road. The road is of the wide (six feet) guage, and is already in operation from Scran ton to Great Bend, where it connects with the New-York and Erie, which gives it access to Western and Northern New York, where the road is now doing quite an ex tensive coal business.

Newell, Hon. Joseph F. Randolph, James S. Nevius and Peter L Clark, Esq. Among the Democrats, we have heard of the following " anxious ones:"' Hon. William C. Alexander, Hon. Charles Skel ton, John S. Darcy and Henry A. Ford, Esqrs. There is said to be some probability of the Temperance men entering the arena upon their own strength. If such should bo the case, Hou. Joel Haywood, of 0 ccan, will probably be their candidate. JjyThe papers in all parts of Penn sylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, and Wisconsin, concur in saying that present indications warrant high expectations of the coming crop. From Illinois there have been some complaints, but not more than at this time last year. AitollserlVcw Territory Alharra The Washington U?iion contains a communication from Henrr 11. School craft, Etq., in which be describes a sec tion of country which is known by the name of Alharra. He says it is so attract ive, well timbered and fertile area of coun try, lying immediately west of the Rocky Mountainsin mild, temperate latitudes, to which, for the purpose of distinct allusion, he applies the aboriginal term. The area is about, fifty miles broad, and lies paral lel to the Rockey Mountains for a distance of severel hundred miles. It gives rise to both of the main and numerous sub affluents of the Columbia River. It is a high plain, which is cut through by these affluents, of a most fertile character, bear ing trees, and in some places high grass; and while the streams create abundant water power for lumber and grain mills and machinery, they are free, or nearly free, from inundation of their banks. This district probably comprehends twenty-five thousands square miles, and if its capacities of production have been cor rode estimated, would sustain a uomila- J . . f . ' t J.

The Peter Miller Will-Again. Messrs. Yeates, Ardut and WyckofF, Auditors appointed by the Court to aud it the account of Samuel Wilhelm, as Ex ecutor and Trustee of the estate of the late Peter Miller, reported last week. We understand the report is an able one, and is lengthy, occupying about sixty foolscap pages. They report against Mr. Wilhelm to the amount of sixty or seventv thousand dollars, and the Audi tor's fees are six thousand dollars. It is said the parties had agreed that the de cision, of the Auditor's should be final. Eastba- Whig. CockroaJtccs. Many housekeepers are grievously annoyed by these troublesome creatures, and in vain, try various meth ods for their extermination. A few days ago Gen. Rogers invited us in to see how he manages them. He had a wash basin (of crockery warej) a fourth part filled with water well sweetened with molasses, in which during the night some hundreds, perhaps thousands, of roaches had been drowned, by crawling up a stick laid upon the edge of the basin, and thence in to the liquid, and being unable to crawl up the glazed sides and get out again. He informed us that the number he has caught in this way would scarcely be cred ited. It is a simple contrivance. Try it Bucks Co. Intel. Our ommere5mpo!ls ana Ex ports. An appendix to the report of the late Secretary of the Treasury, communicated to the U. S. Senate, gives some impor tant information relative to our Imports, Exports and Debts. It states that our average annual imports from 1821 to 1826, specie included, were 830,378,340 from 1848 to 1852 they were 8181,969, 579, showing that they more than dou bled in thirty years. That our average imports from 1321 to 1826, were S69, 439,785, and from 1S43 to 1852, 175,- 943,360. That in 1821 the tonnage of the United States was only 1,298,958 tons; in 1S52 it was 4,138,441 tons, show ing that it has more than trebled in thir ty years. Next to great Britain, we have a larger tonage than any nation in the world, and in five years, at the present rate of increase, we shall surpass Great Britain The value of our annual products exceeds three thousand millions of dollars, of which only about 170,000,000 are sent abroad, leaving $2,830,000,000 to be consumed at home by interchange among the States. At least 600,000,000 is thus interchanged, in the reciprocal system which prevails between the states of the Union. The total debt of the several States in 1851 was S20l,5H,62i, which was less by some millions than it had been during the previous ten years. The value of property assessed in the same States was 5,983,149,407, the real value being how ever, 1,05S,1 58,779 a pretty good se curity, we think, for their debts, whether owing at home or abroad. The above facts relative to our home consumption of home products, will give some idea of the importance of fostering this invaluable trade and exchange be tween the States, and the meagre conse quence of the much boasted "foreign mar kets. Facta like these should speak trumpet tongued to the people of this Union in fa vor of tho encouragemeut und support of our own manufactures by every prudent and lawful means. Let the same system be pursued by our Government that for a century and a half was pursued by the British Government, and the result would be to make us not only the mistress of the -seas, but the greatest manufacturing nation on the globe.

'Quick Worlio The Harrisburg " Borough Item," of Wednesday, May 11, contains the follow ing. A gentleman from Elzabethtown ar rived in our borough on Tuesda', got in to the company of a few young ladies the same evening, was struck with the ap pearance of one of the party, and imme diately made proposals was accepted, and last night was married. It is not every preacher that does business with such despatch." The Whig Party. The Whig party is a great party nu merous in numbers, and contains some of tho brightest intellectual ornaments of the nation. Pennsylvania, the proud "old Keystone" the arch of the Union, is not without her men of genius and greatness, and while the whole party have been stricken down by sad mistakes, in the el evation of one who should not have our sympathies, let us arm and equip the en tire host for a battle at the coming elec tion, which will place us in the van-guard of the glorious party which we espouse. We have been led to make these remarks from an article in the Daily JYcivs, which vc copy below : " Having selected our candidates for State officers men good and true, who are well qualified to discharge the duties oi the ofhees for which they have been placed in nomination it becomes us as a party contending for the maintenance and success of great principles, to do what in our nower lies to secure their success A. at the polls next fall. To do this we must be thoroughly organized, and to be thus organized, we must commence the good work early, with such an organiza tion as we may effect by commencing in due season, considering the discordant el ements which are already manifesting themselves among our opponents, we may succeed next fall, notwithstanding we en ter upon the contest with an apparent majorit' of 20,000 against us. Now, it is only an apparent not a real ma jority. Last fall the so-called Democracy were united, not upon principle, but in a common desire to obtain the patronage of the Government. Now they have the patronage, and it is doing its work of dis traction and mischief among them. Where one obtains a suck at the public teat, twen ty are disappointed, and by next fall they will be prepared to wreak their vengeance upon those whom they blame for their own bad luck. It is a sad mistake under such circuni stances, to suppose that, because the Whig party was so signally defeated at the last Presidential election, it can never recov er its original strength. Gen. Scott re ceived a larger number of votes than any Whig candidate for the Presidency ever obtained before ; and a party which, un der the most adverse influences, succeed ed in polling a million and a half of votes can never cease to be formidable. Nor is this the only fallacy under which wc fear but too many Whigs labor. Those who indulge the notion that the Whig party will have no occasion to exercise its strength and employ its conservative influences within the next four years, are grievously mistaken. The signs of the times indi cate otherwise. The lawless spirit of Young America, with its desires for ter ritory, and the expansive view of " Pro grass," that are on every side not only tolerated, but countenanced and approved by those in high places the appointment to office of men who entertain opinions as to the nature of our compact, and the extent of our powers, utterly at variance with tne security of our institutions, and the efficient administration of our affairs the certainty that whatever good intentions the President himself may entertain will be checked by those who move about him from these, and a hundred other indica tions, it is more than probable that it will not be very long before the Whig party will be called upon to interpose its strength as a bulwark to shield us from a long list of evils. When that day comes, let us not be powerless through our own de fault ! But there are other equally strong in centives to the Whigs of this State to a rouse to their duty and organize thorough ly. Of these we shall hereafter speak. Suffice it now to say, that they can, if they will, again wheel their own State into the Whig line. They need but do their whole duty, and put forth their en tire strength to accomplish it. Shall it be done 1 Railroad Damage. The New York Tribune of yesterday says: The late accident on the Camden and Amboy Railroad will cost that Company some twenty or thirty thousand dollars, in damages, and that now engrossing the public mind, will in a like manner put the New Haven Company to an expense of one to two hundred thousand dollars. It is to be hoped that all who are injured by railroad accidents will in future pros ecute the companies for damages, and, the way to directors' consciences being through their pockets.

The steamship United States arrived this morning from San Juan bringing advices from Sanhran- cisco to the 30th of April, being thirteen days later than our last advices. The United states has made a splen did passage, the entire trip from San Fran cisco occupying but 20 days. The Grand Jury in the case of the steamship Independence, wrecked in St. Simon's Bay, have rendered a verdict, in which they express the opinion that the vessel was wholly unsea-worthy at and before the time of the painful accident, and that much blame attaches to her owners for allowing her to be employed in the transportation of passengers, when they must have known such was the case. Business at Sah Prancisco continued dull, though holders of flour had been en abled in some instances to obtain a slight advance. The stock of provisions and other ne cessary articles ot consumption in the in terior, was very light, and the roads lead ing thereto in a most wretched condition, so that high prices and much suffering are anticipated. The accounts from the mines continue of a cheering character, so far as regards the product of gold. lhe miners and others are industriously and profitable employed. There have been but few arrivals at San Francisco from the Atlantic ports since the departure of the last steamer although a number of vessels are consid erably over due. Among those arrived, is the barque Old Hickory, from New York, after a passage of about 146 days. Tho list of deaths given in the San Francisco papers, show a considerable in crease for the last month over previous months. Included in those from the Atlantic States who have died, are the names of Luke Carroll, of Mass., Bigler Moyer, Wm. Da Pee, aud Henry Antho ny, of New Bedford ; J. Greenman and B. Mason, R. I., and T. Godden, J. Tur ner, and T. Tallbudge, of Connecticut. The agricultural prospects throughout California for the coming year are very flattering, and a large yield is confidently looked for. The Alia California represents trade as dull in many of the leading articles, and the market depressed, owing in part to the backwardness of the Spring trade and the bad condition of the roads. An active business, however, was anticipated during the month ot May. The stock of flour on hand was large, and heavy arrivals were expected during the next lew weeks. The whaling ship Robert Brettsford, from New Bedford, is ashore on Christ mas Island. The Legislature would finally adjourn on the 11th of May. Two fires had occurred at San Francis co, but they were fortunately extinguished before any damage of importance was done. The banking house of Page, Bacon k Co., had been robbed of S3,000. Two discoveries of gold near negro Hill are reported. The agricultural prospects of the State are in a very flattering condition. Later dates from China had been re ceived at San Francisco. The American ship Charles Andrews had arrived at Singapero. The Oldest vVohjiiei in the World The Charleston Standard thinks that Mrs. Singleton, now living in the Wil liamsburg district, in that State, is the oldest woman in the world. She is now in the one hundred and thirty-first year of her age. Her mental faculties are still unimpared and she retains all her senses except that of sight, of which she was deprived at the advanced age of nin-ty-nine years, by an attact of measles. Her bodily energy exhibits no diminution for many years, she being still able to walk briskly about the room. She has outlived all her children, her oldest de scendant, living, being a grand -daughter, over sixty years old. The first grand daughter, of this grand-daughter, if now living, would be over sixteen years of age. JjjThe Gardiner trial, which has been going on at Washington, for some two or three months, is drawing to a close. The evidence was concluded week before last; and the counsel for Ine.defeuce pro posed to submit it to the jury without comment, but the counsel for the govern ment would not consent. The arguments were proceeded with last week, and in the course of this we may expect them to be finished. P. S. At the close of the speech of the prosecuting Attorney the counsel for the defense declined addressing the jury, and the Court decided that the other counsel for the prosecution could not be heard. The case was submitted to the jury on Thursday; and at the last accounts (10 o'clock on Saturday night) there was no prospect of their agreeing. Authur Spring. The following par agraph is from an Irish paper, the Kerry evening Post, of April 10th. "Since the publication in our last, we have heard, on good authority, that the wretched culprit whose trial we copied from the Philadelphia papers, though calling himself Spring in America, was never known by that name in this country- having always been called Authur Orosbie, after his mother, Peg Crosbie, a woman of such notoriously bad character that her son's claim was never admitted by the gentleman after whom she choso to call him; and, consequently, as before stated, he always went by her namo. Besides him, the miserable woman had several other illegitimate children, all J named after different fathers. Left to the solo gaudinnce of such a mother, it is no wonder the unfortunate wretch should have been no better than he was." Tra- kc Qhroniclet Anti-Rent Outrage. Schollarie. K Y., May 19. A Mr. Lawrence nrooeeded to the house of Jacob Deitz, on Tuesday last, for the purpose of serving a summons. Ho found Mr. D. near his house, and handed him the papers. Deitz took them and read-them. when he threw them on tne ground, seizcu Lawrence by the throat, calling him a damned scoundrel, tor coming to serve naners on him. He then called to his family to blow a horn, when a man named Hollenbeck, who was at work for Deitz as a mason interceded for Lawrence,who man aged to pet awav, and started oil on a run. Deitz followed in pursuit, knocked Law- rence down, and held mm until lour men - - mt m discruiHC made their appearance. JLhey then tied his hands behind him, and took ... i him to a small piece or brush near uy ; then tore off his coat, vest and cravat, and with a jack knife cut off his hair, occasion al cutting the scalp, and remarking that they had plaster that would heal it up ; they tarred his head and body, and pour ed tar into his boots. After exhausting all their ingenuity this way, each cut a stick, and whipped him until they got tired. They then tied his hands before him, and started him for the house, each of them kicking him at every step. They made him tako the papers back, but took them away again, when, after knocking him down again, they left him, and he succeeded in reaching the residence or Geonre Becker, last evening. His legs hands, arms, and face are badly bruised. Singular ase of AMuciion. A remarkable case of abduction occur- ed at Bergen Five Corners, N. J., on the night of the 12th inst. Miss Emily Teal, a young lady 23 years of age, of good edu cation and respectable iamny, stepped out into the yard aTaout 9 o clock, in her night clothes, with a mantilla thrown over her head; and not returning, her brothers went out to search for her, but found nothing except the mantilla. From that time on the search was continued for twenty-four hour3 without success. Ear ly on Saturday morning, however, she was found by her family on the steps of her father s house, almost exhausted and helpless, and dressed the same as when taken away. Since her return she has been very ill and confined to her bed with fever, resul ting from the excitement and exhaustion of the occurrence. Such is the condition of her health that her physicians have advised that she be left as quietly as pos sible until she somewhat regains her com posure and strength. Her friends, there fore, refrain mostly from questioning her until the danger of her illness is over. She has, at intervals since she reach home, made some statements, which we understand from a reliable source, are as follows: As she was going into her res idence on the evening of her disappear a'nee, and while passing through the arbor which is built over the walk, she was seized and so quickly gagged and blinded that she was unable to give an alarm, and was conveyed to the street, terrified al most to fainting. She was taken a short distance to a carriage and the carriage was driven, as seemed to her like a long dis tance. She was then made to walk In the same blinded and almost stifled condition for some distance over rough ground and ta ken into a house. There she was un blindfolded and found herself in a small, poorly furnished room, where a lamp was burning dimly. She is confident that she did not cross any ferry; and it is believed that she was not taken out of Hudson county. She was kept in that small dar kened room, in which the light was burn ing durng Friday. One ordinary looking female, and a well dressed man were the only persons she saw about the house; and such were her fears that it is doubtful whether she could identify them. Food and drink were offered to her while she was kept there, but she would not touch them, and from the. time she was taken away until she returned, she partook of neither. She believed that those in whose keep ing she was, designed to drug her. She was left alone nearly all of the time in the room. On the night of her return she was walked, gagged and blindfolded toward her home. Her path appeared to be through woods and fields, and she was left in the road running from Ho boken to Bergen Corners, at a point about half a milo from her father's residence. Her conductors removed the bandagefrom her eyes and the gag from her mouth when they left her and fled. She found her way with difficulty to her father's residence, which she reached too much exhausted to give an alarm. She was found lying on the steps almost insensible, two hours af terward by the family, when the door was opened in the morning. Such are the facts so far as they are ascertained. The motives of the parties in abducting her are yet a subject af con jecture. It is thought by some that.it was intended to carry off some other per son. She suffered no violence at their hands, except being forcibly carried, and the occurrence is regarded as very mysteri ous. It has created no little excitement and alarm in that neighborhood. A Wonderful Goose. The Snow IlilKShield gives the following description of a great goose belonging to a gentleman living near that town. In the first place he lias three perfect legs and four feet, two of which are placed in the natural posi tions, hut the third one, is where the funda ment is to be found in other geese, and in the end of it there are two perfect feet, making it a four-footed goose. The next curious fact is, that it possesses two fundaments one on each side of lis third leg and uses each alter nately without the least apparent inconve nience.Jt is fourteen months old, and its body neck and head are much larger than those of our geese.

The train was bound for Chicago, and thef greater!, part of its vast load was carried to the merchants oi tuat turiv n6v.. - the 1st of April just such trains have star- . . . r. .1 Jl 1 T L-s.' ted almost daily irom tne uejiuh u .

Stubborn A man in Lancaster county refused to pay his school tax, 81.90 when the con stable sold his horse for $1.12, took out- the tax and costs, and tendered him the balance. Ho refused it, and said it must be paid to Esq., Miller, his agent, resi ding some miles distant. This the con stable refused to do. The old goose pros- ecuted and went to Court lost his case and paid tho costs. A Singular Device. A singular circumstance, exhibiting in a remarkable degree the reflecting facul ties of a wolf, is related as having taken place at Signo-le-pit, a small town on the borders of Champagne. The following particulars are copied from an exchange paper : A farmer, one day, looking througli the hedge of the garden, observed a wolf walking round about his mule, but una ble to get at him, on account of the mule's constant kicking with his hind legs. As the farmer perceived that his beast was so well able to defend itself, he considered it unnecessary to render him any assis tance. After the attack and defence had lasted fully a quarter of an hour, the wolf ran off to a neighboring ditch, where he several times plunged into the water. The farmer imagined he did this to. re fresh himself after the fatigue he had sus tained, and had no doubt that his mulo had gained a complete victory ; but in a few minutes the wolf returned to the charge, and approached as near as ho could to the head of the mule, shook him self, and spirted a quantity of water into the mule's eyes, which caused him imme diately to shut them. That moment the wolf leaped upon him and killed the poor mule before the farmer could come to his assistance. iiiHnr aud Painful Case, Near Millerstown, the 13th inst., Dr. S E. Hall extracted from the right ear of Joseph Gelbach, two hundred live mag gots. It seems that a fly or bug entered the drum of his ear, when he immediately started to the physician, but before ho reached himtheinsecthadleftitstentment. This occurred two days previous to tho extraction, in which time the patient suf fered intense pain. It is supposad by tho physician that the insect had deposited its eggs during the short time it was in the ear. Gettysburg (Pa.) Sentinel. Very Singular. We are informed thafc on Wednesday last, a heavy shower took place a short distance south of Bedford, and on several persons going out of their houses, the ground was observed to be covered with a species of lizard, about three inches long, of a purple and green color, with four natural feet, and one in the middle of its body, with nails on like those of a human being it also has bufc one eye, of a dull, heavy lead color, in th middle of its head between the ears, and! from which it sees sharply in every di rection. Several living specimens havo have been preserved by a gentleman in the neighborhood of the shower. It feeds on bark, roots, and grass. This gentle man intends sending a pair of them to a distinguished naturalist in Philadelphia. Curions Suit about a Wifd The Ontario county (N. Y.,) Ti?ner, gives the following particulars of a case of abduction, now on trial before the special court at Geneva. The defendants are Asa B. Smith, Wm. Smith and Thos Wright, and they are charged with a for cible abduction and carrying away from this state of the person of Eliza. Bi. wife of Addison J. Bennett. The defendants are Quakers, The facts so far show that, on the 29th of August, 1852, tho said E liza., who is the daughter of William R.. Smith, left the residence of her father, in Macedon, Wayne County,, in Company, with Addison J.Bennett. That they went to East Macedon, and were there duly, and legally raurried in all tho solemnities of the marriage vow. That tho happy couple were returning to the house of a,, friend of tho bridegroom, near the resi dence of the bride's father, when the honey-moon was suddenly obscured. They were met in the highway, in Victor, by, the defendants, and the mother of ther young lady. On the meeting of the par ties, much u noise and confusion" prevail ed. The fair bride was spirited awayl and the new made Benedick was left mi nus. Subsequently, and on the same evening, (the day being Sunday,) the bride in company with severel relations, took the cars at Geneva, apd proceeded to Philadelphia. This ia the abduction charged by the prosecution and which is claimed by the defendants as being the result of jMrs Bennett's own free will; Mr. B. soon after gave chase. Some four weeks after ho turned up in tho Quaker city, and was there seen by his spouse through a window, whereupon she and her companions took a hasty leave and returned to Macedon. Much litigation has grown out of this transaction, and nioro to come; and which it is apprehend ed, cannot be of much pofit to the parties concerned. Two writs of habeus corpus have already been issued in the matter, but Mr, B. has failed as yet to obtain. tbg f society of his wife. f 4 1 '
