As Mr. Buchanan is about to return to the

President has appointed the lion. George M. Dal

pointment was unanimously confirmed by the
Senate on Monday host, ami it is supposed that
Mr. Dallas will take his departure about the mid
dle cf this month. The present delicate state of
our relations with Great Britain required the se
lection of one of our ablest statesmen, and the
appointment of Mr. Dallas gives general satisfac
tion to the whole country. He is well known to
the people of Lis native State, and also to the
Union, as a safe, conservative statesman, and who
Las proved himself equal to any emergency in
which he Las been placed. Hiving entered pub
lic life very young as Secretary of Legation to
Russia, and successively held the cfiices of Attor
ney General of Pennsylvania, Unitiel States Dis
trict Attorney, United States Senator, Minister io
Russia, and Vice President of the United States,

From the Democratic Standard.
Mr. Ekitoi: : The time is near at hand
when we will be called upon to make a selec
tion from the Democratic ranks of the Old
Kevstone of a candidate for the important
and responsible oftice of Canal Commissioner.
Allow me, to suggest, through your columns,
the name of AuuLPiiva PahehsCX, of Blair
county, as a mau every- way7 rpu all lied for that
responsible office. . He is a well known and
tried democrat and his nomination would
harmonize the patty to a greater degree than
any man within my knowledge in the State,
lie belongs to no clique or faction, and would
come before the people with clean Lands and
a reputation tor honesty and capacity that
could not fail to carry him triumphatly through
the campaigu of lSf.O. With tuch a man as
their standard bearer in the coming political
contest, tho Democratic party can Lid deuhince
to all the l&ms that can Le brought to bear
against it. (jive us a new man, fresh from
the ranks of the people, and on the 21 Tues

The Koral of the Senatorial Election.
The West Chester Jieublu-an has the fol
lowing apposite remarks relative to tho elec
tion of Gov. Bxgleii to the IT. S. Senate:
The election of Gov. Bigler in many re
spects must be highly gratify ing to the Dem
ocratic party of Pennsylvania. We propose
to examine briefly the moral of this election
At the State election in 1854 a whirlwind of
political excitement swept over this Common
wealth, which not only prostrated the nomi
nee of the Democracy for the Gubernatorial
Chair of the State, but also sent a body of
legislators to Harrisburg largely opposed to
our time-honored organization. Like the
present representation in tho lower ilouse at
Washington, they had every thing in their
own hands, and yet there seemed to be an
ov;r-ruling power that thwarted every design
they attempted to execute. This very Scua
torsh'.p was actually in their grasp, and ver,
after weary days of balloting, they were forc
ed to retire to their homes leaving the import
ant post vacant. Of such incongruous mate
rials was that legislature composed, that they
utterly failed in uniting upou any individual
that they could elect to the United States Sen
ate. But is it not a little singular that the
very man whom they had so overwhelmingly
defeated for Governor, this same William Big
ler, over whose downfall they shouted paeans
of triumph, should now fill the vacancy they
left behind them in their inglorious flight from
the Capitol of the State? It strikes us as a
marvelous instance of speedy retributive jus
tice. It would seem as if a hand more th?.n
human, was in all this complexity of political
circles, directing the right and confusing and
rebuking the wrong.
Busiuess of the Uain line.
In answer to a resolution adopted by the
State Senate, requesting tho Canal Board to
furnish a statement showing the number of
trucks fit for use ou the Portage Railroad,
and to suggest a plan for restoring the trans
portation trade to the Main Line, the Canal
Board have sent into that body a communi
cation, which we fpaote below:
There are now in use on the Alle
Portage Railroad thirteen sets of trucks for
the conveyance of section boats. If there
should be an increase of freights in lbij'J bv
this mode of transportation, four additional
sets of trucks will be required.
The epuestioa as to the best plan of bung
ing back the trade to the main line of the pub
lic improvements, is one surrounded by many
dilliculucs. The competition of the Pennsy l
vania Railroad the repeal of the protective
tonnage tax the uncertainty which exists as
to whether that portion of the public works
will remain the property of the .state, or pass
into the hands of some corporate body and
the recent withdrawal of the "old and experien
ced transporters from the business are all
well calculated to deter individuals from inves
ting capital in an cutorprize which holds out
such slender prospects of final remuneration.
Under these adverse circumstance., it is not
probable that individuals can be induced to
engage in the business, unless the tells were
reduced to so low a rate as to prove a loss to
the Treasury, instead of being a source whence
revenue is derived. This state of things may,
however, Le changed, and a fair thare of the
carrying trade between the east and west again
secured to the main line, by some legislative
action. As one of the means by which this
object may be accomplished, it has been sug
gested Urat individuals or companies may be
induced to place boats or stock on the line, if
the Legislature will guarantee that, if the
Commonwealth should part with the possess
ion of her works, the purchaser shall be com
pelled to take their stock at a fair valuation.
It is said that, if the guarantee be given, per
sons are ready and willing to engage in the
business. The views of the Board upon this
subject are fully detailed in their annual re
port, to which the Senate is respectfully referr
ed If this plan be adopted, there is another
measure intimately connected with it, which
is entitled to consideration. For the purpose
of expediting transportation, and reducing the
expenses thereof, inducements might be held
out to individuals or companies to place the
motive power on the several lines of canal for
propelling bouts. It is understood that the
only inducement required to effect this object
is to extend to tho individuals or companies
engaging in it, the same protection for their
capital invested, as is before referred to in case
of persons placing boats or stock on the canal
In case this suggestion should Le adopted,
it would require the enactment of proper
guards and restrictions to protect the transpor
ters from over charges and to ensure the speed
dicst despatch of boats from place to place.
As the furnishing of boats and the power to
propel them constitute the largest portion of
tiie expense of canal transportation, it is be
lieved by persons conversant with the subject
that a division of tho business one furnishing
the boats, and another the motive power
would tend to reduce the rates of freights
and to expedite their transit between the east
and the wst.

Washington Citv, Feb. 2. House. Mr.
Smith, of Tenn., said La La 1 heretofore voted
against tie plurality rule ; as yesterday's vote
indicated somo chance of electing as Speaker
a man of sound national views, he now offered
a resolution to that effect.
The House refused to table the resolution
by ten majority.
The resolution was afterwards adopted by a
vote of 113 against 101. (Applause.)
Mr. Ocr unconditionally withdrew his name
as the Democratic caucus candidate, there be
in !i now a probability of a ccr.cc-nlrution of
"rt atcr strength on his colleague, Mr. Aiken.
C Mr. Bovee 'moved to rescind the resolution.
The motion was tabled by 117 againit 101.

the motion out of order.
Mr. Payne moved that the House adjourn.

The motion was disagreed to, and gteat ap
plause from the galleries foliowcd.
Mr. Orr said that if the House was to be an.
noyed by applause from the galleries, Le
would move to have thorn cleared, excepting
those occupied by ladies.
Mr. Payne made an ineffectual motion to
rescind the plurality resolution.
The House then proceeded to ballot for
Sneaker, with the following result : Pauks
1U2; Aiken 93; Fuller 14; Barclay and
Hickman, Democrats, voted for Mr. Wells,
and Dunn, Harrison Moore and Scott, for
Campbell, of Ohio. Necessary to a choice DM.
Tiie next vote, with the exception that Mr
Fuller lost oue, was the same.
The third vote was the same as the second,
except that Mr. Aiken lost one.
Mr. Fuller repeated what he Lad said on
two former occasions, namely : that he was
not and did not desire to be a candidate; 132
votes had satisfied Lim that he was not the
choice of the majority of this body, and on no
other terms or conditions would he consent to
Mr. Barclay remarked that he had been
averse to anything like a coalition of Know
Xothingism, whether it come from the Noath
or South. He asked Mr. Aiken whether he
(Mr. A.) stood on the Democratic platform,
and whether he had not written a. letter to
Humphrey Marshall making pledges to the
Southern body of Know Nothings.
Mr. Aiken I am not a candidate, but. if
my friends think proper to place me in the
Chair, I w ill servo them to the best cf my abil-
3Ir. Humphrey Marshall. I have only to
say that Mr. Aiken has addressed in -2 no letter
whatever. (Applause and cries of "call the
roll," while the- most intense excitement pre
vailed.) Mr. A. K. Marshall, during the call of the
roll, congratulated his American friends that
ihe-y have fought the good light and conquer
ed. There was no Democratic candidate in
the field with the offensive caucus plttform.
Tt was in performing his duty as a patriot,
and not as a partizan, that he had VJted for

It having been reported
th it .Dr. ijurns, a resident ot Washington
Territory, who had taken the field against,
the Indians, had been killed, he lias succeed
ed in conveying to civilized society the follow
ing contradiction :
"Please contradict the report that I was
killed by the Indians ou Wednesday last I
killed seven with my own hands. They hun
ted me through the Lrush for one mile with
dogs and lighted sticks, and every one who
carried the lights I shot. Tho only wound 1
got was a skin wound in the forehead from a
buckshot. I lived in the brush on leaves,
aud shot an Indian this morning for his dried
salmon and wheat, at Mr Lemmou's. Give
my respects to Bright and Rabbeson," and let
them know I anr safe only I had to throw
away my boots, and my feet are badly hurt.
Lost my horse, instrument and medicine case.
My horse was shot iu the kidnevs, ia tho

charge of Lalls and buckshot. Please let Mr.
Wily say I cm all right."

led by the Seminole Indians. His wounds,
which were very bad, caused hii delay in

had been killed. Four men were kills 1 and
three wounded in the engagement in ques
tion Lieutenant II. hid himself in the wa
ter and rushes, where he lay concealed many
hours, during which time sonic cue (supposed
to be Bow-L -gs,) called to him, in very good
English, "Come out! come out! I'll not
hill!" This was, however, an evident feeler
to assure themselves of his whereabouts and
lure him to his death. He was subsequently
able to crawl to Fort Drum.
There, being unable to proceed further,
he lay down to die, but first wrote an account
of the matter on the margin of a newspaper,
with pencil, intending to fasten it to a tree,
that his record might be extant; so he laid
Ij I til down in a pine grove and slept, hourly
expecting that death, in some shape, would
visit him. It was dark wl en he awoke, and
you may imagine the revolution of feeling,
you may conceive his joy, when the sweet
music of the drum, beating off tattoo, met
his ear. (No tattoo to him, but the most
joyful of reveilles, indicating the dawning of
safety.) But how shall he tell them of his
presence? How indicate that lie, eue whom
they seek, is near? Suddenly he bethought
himself of Ins pistol, and although there was
but little Lopes that the charge would be dry,
yet the trial must be made, for he cannot
walk to them. He drew and fired the pistol;
fortunately, it exploded the guard heard it
the long roll was beat, that the poor fugi
tive might be assured his friends had recog
nized the signal ; they formed and marched
vn.ma.-i$c to his rescue. And oh! what a
meeting ! Strong men cried like children for
very jy in his safety."
