If the Government de sired to put them in a position that wonlt involve a forfiture of life in case of such an attempt. they ought to havo been per mitted to go at large upon parole of honor.

As we have pubilished a long extract or a letter from a friend, upon the subject of the next presidential election, we have thought proper to give the conclusion of his remarks. The writer is a patriot, and tin arslent friend of the union ; and in his honest conviction of the policy wtbich 'hould be pursued, in order to mainain that union, be can find no other principle but that of a strict adherence to ibe consti ution, which wil! always reserve the rights of the states, as retaine when those tates confederated. The -conclusion of :ur friend's letter is as follows : "1 take occasion here to remark, that you must not conclude, from the interest I manifest in the success of Mlr.

The circumstances .of the tragedy as detailed to us, were briefly.these. Adams was engaged in a lawsuit with soe of his neighbors. which terminated 'in his favor. Shortly afterwards (oi Thursday last,) about 20 men rode up to Adams' place at noon day, and found him quietly seated upon one of the fences of his pre mises.

The steam boat Western arrived at ibis port las night from the Upper NJissouri bringing news of the -nurder of Charvis, a Mlexican trader, whose approach to our sotlements had al- a ready been announced. We learn from the Reponer, that 31r. Pito the clerk of the Western. states that WID. lason was ar rested at Independence Landing on the 24th inst.. as one of-the supposed bandits, aid that he confessed his guilt and gavo up the names of his accomplice.. The fucts connected with the murder and rob hery of Char vis, aro, in substance, as fol lows Antouio Jose Davi Charvis, a citzen of New-51exico. started about four weeks ago, from Santa Fe for'this Sta.accom pauied by 20 men. Hehadwith him a large sum of money, and took two wagons with a usmber of mules-During his jour ney ffteen of his men deserted him, and returned to Santa Fe, owing to the severi ty or she weathcr. According to the eon fessiuon of M1ason, Charvis reached the Little Arkansas, about 240 miles from In dependence. having with him five ser vants1. His p arty was there assailed and plundered.

A: any rate, it is itmlportant that he should be arreted, and bhat President H~ouston should disavow having commissioned him fotr the business in wich he has hee engaged. lagniousa Inetion.-A Washit;on' correspondent of the New Yorkc Aurora thus describes an invention which is noW in operation ini the fotrmer city : There has been lately constructed at the national arsenal bero a conttivance for testiog the strength of powder by the re coil of heavy ordiranee and the momentum of the shot. which ir truly admirable in its way. I will try to conveyto.you some idea of thlvishahle invention. A thirty two pounder is suspended by an irds pen dulum ten -or twelve feet long, at the to p of which iS a heavy bar of the same'metal, o the exnemitiies of which ret upon smooth iron phates, which are sustained bystrong abutes-tof stono.--Un'derneath the gu is placed a segment of a circle, regularly ,graduated, upon which -a piece of iron slides; the upper plart cotmung'a contact with the gun. When the cannon is- discharged, this piece of metal is pushed, by the recoil, along the scale, and indicates exactly the extent of the vibration of the preduhum. Opposite the above, a: the distance of a bouti mziy feet, is a similar contrivane.
