Wilmington, Thursday,Nov.22,1883. r Stuekley'M Ke»pon«tbt tlty iiurrticau 4,'aae. Governor rttookley will presently be asked to grant a reprieve, fall pardon, to Jeremiah Harrigau, the murderer of Denis Shea. The décision is absolutely in the Governor's hand. He tuna the murderer loose within a Unvei e it to perhaps a th had t that month ; be years' exemption from the gallows, hold his hand and let the Coart be exeoated December. There is grant him a year's he sentence of the 14th of doabt that Har rigan's friends fell that the first reprieve was a great point gained, and that the seoond gave strong hope of Harrigan'a final esoape from the gallows, measure of their hope is indicated by the fact that they oonvloted take the of doue. bas the by that The ask a pardon for the o Public sentiment, we believe, has somewhat changed In favor of Uarrigan, not to be pardoned damned by popular vote. The Governor and his advisers need but keep in mind that if Harrigan is guilty of the full crime for which he convicted lie is deserving ot death to-day as when he first reoeived the sentence ot the court. The fact that one Governor thought fit to grant him a lease of life does not oommit Governor Stookley to a like course lease him in the slightest degree from the responsibility of giving the arguments of HarrtgaD's friends the closest sorntiny. Whatever pubiio sentiment may be, Harrigan comes before the G-overnor a convicted and con demned man, his life forfeit to the Btate, ■ h to '• and only npon the most convincing proof, in examining whioh it must be remem bered that it is submitted by the friends of the oondemned i, without the ordinary solemnity surrounding testi given in a court oi justice, and, mouy have heard, without acoom panying recommendation to mercy from the court or any of its officers. On the other hand, if the Governor shall be vinoed that the verdict in Harrigan's oaae was in any degree an unjust one, it is the Exeoutive's plain dnty to exercise his great prerogative of mercy. It has been suggested from a source that delights to find naught but evil in the pubiio administration of this Btate, tar that politioal influence will secure the oondemned a reprieve or pardon,bnt would dare appeal utterly subversive of justioe, believe that the Goveruor will believe to the Governor upon grouud untenable, and allow the fear of oriticism from such souroe to sway hl» judgment. Harrigan's oolor, religion, nationality or polltios, has nothing whatever to do with the question of his guilt, and the man who would thrust any or all of them between Harri gan and justice Is a dangerous enemy to the Btate. Of oourse the Governor does uot need to be told that the arguments hitherto advanced to save Uarrigan's neck cannot properly serve to secure him a full and immediate pardon. If he was guilty of anything in slaying Denis Shea, his crime has not beeu sufficiently Answered by hiB brief term of Imprisonment. The his life is that argument urged to the victim had oorrupted the wife ol hiB slayer. Had the kll.Ung been doue when the alleged outraged husband had found the guilty pair in 11 ag raute deliotn, there wonld have been for exeoutive clemency, for Harrigan wonld have been by the Jury. But since Shea was slain ander no such oiroums tances, surely the Governor not be expected to set the slayer free. Whatever is done the great point for the Executive is to remember that the present responsibility is entirely per sonal to himself. call Tli© Kvergla«i«-N Expédition.

It is fortunate that this book did not appear sooner, for not until within a v cent poriod, even if then,was it possible for a calm aud dispassionate view to be taken of a whose connection with the earliest stages of our great civil war had caused such preju dice against him amougst a very large portion of tbe American people. It i» whether yet a fair consideration of the course adopted by Mr. Buchanan during what is sometimes called the "secession winter" of '60 aud '61, motives and conduct biographer, as will more fully appear concluding portion of this review. The biographer rapidly sketches Buchanan's early life, dwelling however at considerable length upou that saddest chapter,his unfortu nate love affair with the over-sensitive young woman whose death was directly traceable her voluntary breaking of their marriage engagement. The estrangement of the lovers of those common occurrences perpetually verify the saying that "the love never did pure aud unbroken in the heart of the survivor through a long und varied life. It became a grief which could uot be spoken of, to which only the distant allusion could be made; a sacred unceasing sorrow, buried deep in tbe breast of a man who was formed for domestic joys. His peculiar aud reverential demeanor towards women, little varied by rank. ,, or individual attractions, wan doubtless a large degree caused by the tender memory of what he found, or fancied, iu her whom he had lost iu his early days by so cruel a fate. In 1820 he wan first elected to Congress a Federalist. But his political principles an ctaUsman were yet to be formed, when 1 took his seat in 1821, he fouud assembled brilliant a galaxy of gathered at the capital.

Ilis connection with the fanio Mr. Clay made him many enemies, and on a rather careless reading of Mr. Curtis' account satisfied, but fully examining it wo think Mr. Buchanan s candor aud honor in the matter are completely vindicated. An mterestiug feature of the book is Buchanan's letters from Europe written dur ing; his diplomatic career in Russia aud his visit to England. The careless student his tory will be interested to learn here, too, the facts connected with our threatened war with curious here that King Louis Phillip addressed autograph letter to President Jackson advis to adopt a very decided tone upou tho ch question iu his message to Congress, avoid war, believing o would induce the stubborn this "bargain aud sale" charge again j made him many enemies, aud on the it iu '33 aud '34. It i as mg bun Louis, wUo wished that Hucb a Chamber of Deputies to yield try « reasonable demands. The 1st volume of this work takes us up to the year 1849 and treats of Mr. Buchanan's connection with the removal of executive offi cers, the tariff question, tho United States Bank legislation, the independent treasury, Tyler's vetoes, tho baukrupt act of 1841, uexation of Texas, the Oregon con with England, the questio Central America in connection with the Monroe doctrine, the Caytou-Bulwor treaty, i tlie Mexican war. In the consideration of all these and many other great national questions Buchanan took a prominent part. The socoud volume naturally will attract the great mass of readers, because groat deal of new and valuable information in reference to public events just before the cucement of civil hostilities. It is a valuable contribution to American history. There are other matters of deep interest con tained iu it, however, among them an account of Buchanan's stay in England from this country. There ho was a social favorite. In 1854 tho famous Ostend circular was issued, being tho result of a conference be tween Mr. Buchanan. John T. Mason and Houle, tho American minister» to < »reat Britain, France aud Spain. The forouco at Ostend had its origin in the meudation of Heerot&ry of S Marcy. Mr. Houle had been Spain, with special and extraordinary stnictions aud powers, all to the annexation of the <jf (Juba. Mr. Marcy h meeting of tho three ministers above tioued for conference, aud the views and recommendations of these ministers ad the Ostend manifesto, produced much excito ment throughout Europe. The part which especially excited the attention of other this remarkable declaration : is the cash who still reference is a : that than William L. minist or lookin Islau suggested enter.

Of the perplexing situations in which Mr. Buchanan was placed, by tbe disruption of his cabinet, by the unfaithfulness of many of those in close intercourse with him, by utter lack of assistance from Congress, by the treacherous attempts of former friends plans favorable to the secessionists, by the diverse views presented to him by those w ho deserved his confidence, spirit manifested Doth North aud Bouth, aud especially by the determined war spirit of the "Southern iire d the utter blindness of the masses of the Northern people to the dangers of a civil war, this work fully explains.
