The f.liior of tint Went Chesler Village Record gives the following as snbslnnoa of n conleesion niHilH to him by Genige l'lmiaoh in (lie prison, since his conviction : On Hie morning: of the murd r of Rachel Sharpies, I came out from my father' house, and went tip the Buot road.

I did it to tense Alary. I had often plagued the dug.- Did not see Wrn.

Oliplinnt came to him near the spring hiiiisii, and went wilh him down to the woojs. Says he snapped at a robin, but his nun did not go off. He then went down into t'10 wood, and Oliphant went alter the cows. said he had thought somethiti!! of shonliiirr It.ichel Sharpies. before ho had starled from hoim-, and as his gun snapped when lie aim fd at tha robin, he put up a mark oi, a tree opposite the bars, or nearly so, and fired nt it to sue if his gun would go off, and the shot me in the tree. He loaded his gun again nml remained in' tho woods about a quarter of an hour. He went down 10 the biidge, mid looked hack and 1honht Oliphant saw him ; he then went up through the middle of llie woods, where he could leave no tracks Inward llio school house, and said thai the. tracks ncross the creek and in the path along the fence, which had been measured and 1 UiMia lit lo correspond with hi shoes uxrn not mii.le by him.

During the day, notwithstanding the muddy condition of our streets, our Voiun teer companies, the Dewart Guards com manded by Capt. Zimmerman, and the Ar tillerists commanded by Lieut. Martz, were on parade the greater part of the day. The Northumberland Volunteers commanded by Capt. Frick, visited us in the afternoon, and were received a la Mililaire by the Sunbury Volunteers. TUB NORTHERN MO, ITS OR AURORA BUREAUS. We neglected in pur last to notice this beautiful phenomenon of nature, which was visible here and elsewhere, on Tues day night of last week. The whole north ern heavens were illumined with a delicate pale straw colored light. At first it ap peared in a delicate color, nearly white, and then assumed a roseate tint, which "came and went like a blush on the cheek of a beautiful maiden." Occasionally it would shoot up rays half way to the tenilh, cul minating or bending over at the top, like a sheaf of wheat, which was of a deeper hue. It was indeed a beautiful sight and brought vividly to mind the beautiful line of Mil ton descriptive of night, "Now ghw'd II firmament With living sapphires. " BROKE JAIL. Two individuals named Jack M'Avoy and Thos. Davis, who were confined in the Jail, in this place, on a charge of Assault & Battery, made their escape on Monday night last, by breaking through the Jail wall. The next morning Sheriff Covert found in their room the following epistle, directed to him, which we publish verbatim et literatim, fur the benefit of the curious, as well as for the complimentary manner in which they took leave of the Sheriff, who oflers a reward of $15 for their appre hension and delivery.

Wc trust Friend Kapp will see the propiiety of some reform in these matters. Consulting the public con venience generally proves, in the end, the best policy. tU" Tun Postaoe Bill in in the Senate has been warmly debated, and Mr. Rusk's bill as amended was adopted as a substi tute for the House bill. This is decidedly preferable to the House bill. The bill, as it now stands, makes letter postage three cents prepaid and five cents for unpaid let ters.

They are both men i'itoi 1.11.LV iiovli:;.h. A letter from South Flmidu speaks nf an interview between Capt Casey, the U. S Indian Agent, and .Mr. "Wilum Doings," as he signs himself. Capt. Casey, act lorlh to bowlegs the recent action of the Florida Le gislature for the removal of the Indians, and told him that now was his last chance for 11 peaceable arrangement ; that the United Slates authorities were hisfrieiids, and would not only see him comfortably removed, and provided for afterward, but would pay him well for going ; but, i.r lie delayed, the Gover nor of Florida and his rillemen and long knives, would be down upon him, and drive llie whole tribe into Ihu ocean. Upon this Billy scratched his head, and thoughl'ully in quired if the United State Government was really his friend and wished him well ? Cup- TlllnT Y-lrTnsT CUNnRESS-Seeond Session. Washington, Fk. 24. The Senate took- up the President's Mes sage, and the motion to refer it. Mr. Berrien denounced the occurrence in Boston art the result of preconcerted action by while and blacks, combined to defeat the emit of the fugitive slave law:" He reviewed the whole subject of the fugitive slave pro vision of the Constitution, the Inws of Con gress, the legislature of tree States, and the decision made by the Supiemo Court on the subject. He believed the law has been executed everywhere, except in Boston. Mi. Rhett did not believe tho law would be enforced or hail been enforced. He did not think it could bo, and judging from Iho concluding remarks of the Senator from Oeor" ci, h did not believe it could be execu ted. Mr. Berrien asked the Senator not to draw any such inference from his remarks. Mr Rlielt snid ho did not believe the law could be executed, even wilh all the arms nnd force of the (Jovernment. He did not believe any law could be executed, unless the senllment of the people, among whom it was to be executed was in unison with Iho execution of the law. It could not be execu ted amongst a people where there was a lor midable minority opposed lo it forcible re sistance might not take place, but it could be evaded by swelling tho costs by counter suits, by secreting the fugitive to enable him lo avoid the process, and by falsa swearing. The law had not been executed. It was slated that there were 30,000 fugitive in the free States, and in the last nine months some ten or fifteen only had been recaptured. He thought the South had lost her great remedy, which was in the Constitution, by taking the one proposed bv tin act of Congress. He read from the Constitution tho two clauses one, that fugitives from labor shall be delivered up; Ihe other, that fugitives from justice shall be delivered up on demand by the executive. The Constitution contain ed no provision granting Congress Ihe power to execute these clauses Congress had no pow ers but those cvpressly granted. He consid ered that those two clauses were to bo execu ted by the Slates themselves und not by Con gress. Every older clause which gave Con gress power, contained express provisions to thai effect. Who con Id donhl but that the acts of WXi and of I80O. for tho delivery of fugitives, were wholly uiiconslilional ? If left to States the Constitution would have been executed. Mr. Clay said that when the message was received from the President, he rose lo ex press his satisfaction of it, which satisfaction he was sure would be felt by all, except the ultras of the North and the South. He anti cipated no such discussion us had taken place. The Senator from South Carolina had giavely informed the Senate that Congress had no powers except those granted by llie 1 Const ilu I inn. A lawyer once was stating tho same fundamental doctiiues, and was pro; ceeding to show that they had existed from i THE WETHERIM DIVORCE CASE. ' Mrs We'.herell' memorial to the Legisla ture in answer to the charge and allegations of her husband, is a very eloquent and touch ing vindication. She expresses her full abil ity to disprove all the charges which have been made against her. She says that she is the mother of fifteen children to Dr. Welhe r ill, twelve of whom ore now alive. She savs : I cannot suppose it possible that yonr hnn- otoble bodies will judge ami decide of me my rights, my children's interests, and their mother's character, without giving bur and them a full opportunity of riueling every accusation and disproving every charge. It, by law, I have such a right, I claim it If I have not, I appeal lo your, sonso of sacred juslice to give it to me. Indeed I am not guilty in net or thought of any of the thing of w hich I urn accused, in the printed me. morial of my misguided husband, and which I have now before me. They cannot, believe me, be proved 110 witness can maintain them, and if any profess so to do, 1 desire and claim the right to be present when such evidence is heard thai my fiiends and coun sel may be there to aid mo that secret testi mony shall not harm me that my own wit nesses may be examined nnd heard that my life and my conduct as a woman, a wife( and a mother, may be proved and made known to you; but until this is done, I pray von do not condemn nip and give to the short LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT TO UJIIAZY.

The letter is dated Sept. 8th, and communicates the fact nf the establish ment of a settlement for the Hungarian relti gees, and so forth. The following is Mr. Fill more's reply : ' .

It has been ascertained, by mathematical calculation, that if the population of the Uni ted States alone should continue to increase, in tho present ralio, say six centuries, then there would be one inhabitant for every square foot ol dry ground on the globe I The data are these : Our rato of increase since 1790 has been llireo per cent, yearly.
