MONDAY MORNING, APRIL 3, 1851.
Fittsburgh and Steubenv lie Railroad.
While in Wellsburg during the past week we
hear', of course, much conversation on the sub
'jectof the above road, and as far as we could per
ceive there is quite a disposition there to settle this
v-xtd question on terms whit h we suppose wou'd
be s'tisfactory to both Wellsburg and Wheeling;
namely, to incorporate a company to construct a
toad from the State line through Holliday's Cove
and Wellsbuiy to Wheeling, without a bridge at
Steubenville; or to extend the Pittsburgh and
Steubenville Toul on the same terms. We do not
know how this project would be received by our
citUins, or those of Brooke, but think such a set
tlement would be advantageous to both parties,
and heal finally the groundless heart-burnings
which have so Ions existed. Cannot this question
be sett'.ed at once? Wellsburg is as much inter
ested to prevent the bridge at Steubenville as we
aie, and it do. a seem that now this matter can be
finally and amicably adjusted. If this mallei can
be adjusted, can it not be done at once?

Anecdote of Captain Martin Scott.
The coolness and daring of Captain Scott, who
was considered the best shot in the American Army,
was at all times remarkable, but on- no occasion
was the strength and firmness of his nervcsjxiore
thoroughly tested than on the following:
While stationed at Greeu Bay, he was called
by tl.e government to make a tour through thi
State of Illinois, for purposes connected with the
service of the United States.
One evi-n-ng, a short time before sunset, as he
was crossing one of the prairies, which were at
that time unsettled and uncultivated, he ap
proached a large bluff, near wh-sc base a rock
projected sovetnl feet in a horizontal direction,
leaving a vacant apace between the lower edge,
and the surface of the ground. x\s he neared the
bluff, the Captain observed a fine doe s'art from
behind it, and bound across the prairie. He watch
ed her agile form, with a true hunter's rest, until
she disappeared in tl.e distance; and then turn
ing to the rtok from whence she had started, he
saw, much to his surprise und pleasure, what he
supposed to be the leg of a buck, while the body
>^as entirely concealed by a jutting stone. The
temptation was too great to be resisted. He flung
himself from his horse, which had been taught to
stand untied, leaving his pistols in their bolsters,
and taki- ? a large hunting knife between his teeth,
he commenced crawling noiselessly along upon
his hands and knees, with the, by no means hon
orable, intention of seizing his unexpected buck
ship by the leg ll possible, making h m a prisoner
of war, or taking his life as the forfeit of his re
sistance. In a few minutes he reached the spot.
The timid deer had changed into a fi cious panth
er, who hau already crouched, with glaring eyes,
ready to spring upon the coming prey. The sur
prise was mutual. Here was a dilemma, from
which 1 e hardly knew how to extricate himself.
Ketreat was impossible; and, in a pitched battle,
the odds were desperately against him. But the
I st was the only alternative. Knowing the pow
er of the human eye over the brute part of cieation,
he co- eluded to reconnoitre the foe, and give him
an opportunity of commencing the attack, if he
chose so to do. The panther had determined to
pursue the same politic course. Within four feet
of the savage beast, and almost feeling his warm
and excited breath upon his cheek, the Captain,
fixing his eyes steadily upon the former, waited
till he should turn his gaze from him. With Scolt,
this strange contest wis lor life or death* Though
moments seemed hours, his guze faltered no* for
an instant, and with his eyes fixed upon those ol
the panther, he remained unmoved, unmovable,
while he could distinctly hear the beatings of his
own heart. In this state of affairs, upon his hands
and kneff^ with no other weapon except the knife
between fits tee'h, utid within a few feet of his
powerful foe, the minutes which passed iiectssari
ly seemed long. At iength the eye of the panther
became unsteady, and it was evident he was be
coming uneasy. He had found more than his
match iu the Captain. He began to wink and the
latter took courage. Finding that all would not
do to throw Scott off his guard, the panther now
reported to strategy. Closing his eyes lor several
moments, as if asleep, he v. oil Id then suddenly
open them, but only to find the same gaz- fixed
upou him. The game was grow ng desperate, the
panther shrunk buck a few feet and gathered for a
spring. Scott believed that the moment of attack
had now come, ami with his eyes steadily meeting
th ise of the panther, who was making a last effort
to look his antagonist out tf countenance, he
slowly grasped his Knife which he had hiihttto re
taiued between his teeth, and prepare.! to spring to
his feet at the first ons-. t. A moment of suspen e
passed, while the panther bracing his hind feet to
make his spring more effects e, with a maddening
giowl, gave a leap to oi.e side and bounded across
the piairie as though a legicn of Sc?tts had been
j at his heels. The Captain thus somewhat unex
pectedly released from his ridiculous, and at the
same time perilous situation, mounted his horse
"Grace," and passed uu his way, perfectly satis
fied with his experience in the capture of live
Mexican Colonization Law.? The Mexican
papers give the following abstract of the new col
onization law of that government.
The Minister of Fomento will appoint agents
a road Lo recruit and embark colonists lor Mexico.
The colonists mu t lie of the Catholic religion,
and must be furnished with certificates of their
being uf correct habits and manners, and acquaint
ed with a useful profession. The agents aie lo
watch over the well being and safety of the colo
nists. Colonists too por.r to pay (or tneir own pas
sage shall be provided with one, with the under
standing that tl.ey are to pav for it two years after
their arrival; each agricultural colonist will re
ceive a grant of 52,500 vurrs cerrees of land, fit
for cultivation, md each family of three persons at
least ol 1,000,000 ceres verreea,- but they will be
obliged lo pay for them alter five years, and must
reside upun their lam's. The colonists will be
considered Mexicans fioiri the time of their ar'ivul.
and subject to all duties appertaining to them
as such. Colonists may introduce clothing, and
unp.ements of. agriculture, necessary to start with,
free of duty.
Lath Mexican Newh.?The New York Com
mercial Advertiser thus truthfully epitomizes the
news relating to the alleged revolution in Acapul
co which hasconiu from the South by telegraph in
the last few days:
1. That Gen. Alvarez held the command of the
mountain passes, and wrs strong in the adhesion
of a numerous and hardy mountain force. 2. That
tie was utterly defeated, and forsaken by his fol
lower?. 3. That he was strong enough to prevent
the government troops from pussing into Sonora.
4. That he wos surrounded in the mountains, and
that nearly all his followers had forsaken him. 5.
That he was becoming sj powerful that President
Santa Anna had left the capital in peraoit to take
the field against him; and 0, that he has defeated
the government troopi.

Extraordinary Performances of a Lady.
The following is an extract of a letter from a per
son traveling in the wild portions of Delaware and
Sullivan counties, New York:
As I ww trudging along one afternoon in the
town ofTFremont, one of the border townsof Sul
livan county, I was overtaken by what I first sup
posed was a young man with a rifle on his shoul
der; and I eing well pleased with the idea of hav
ing company through the woods, 1 turned around
and said, "Good afternoon, sir;" "Good after
noon," said my new acquaintance, but in a tofte
of voice that sounded to ine rather peculiar. My
suspicions were at once aroused, and to satisfy
myself 1 made some inquiries in regard to hunting
which were readily answered by the young lady
whom I thus encou ntered. She said she had been
out ever since daylight?had followed a buck all
day, got one shot and wounded him, but as there
was little snow she could not get him, and was go
iug to try the next day, hoping that she could get
another shot at him, and she wa? quite certain she
should kill him.
Although 1 cannot give a very good idea of l.er
appearance, 1 will try to describe her dress. Tjie
only article of female apparel visible was a close
fitted hood upon her head, such as is often worn
by deer hunters. Next, an India rubber hunting
coat; her nether limbs were encased in a snug,
tight-fitting pair of corduroy pants, and a pair of
Indian moccasins upon her feet. She had a good
looking rifle upon her shoulder, and a brace of
double-brrreled pistols in the side pockets of her
coat, while a formidable hunting-knife hung sus
pended by her side. Wishing to witness her skill
with hnnting instruments, I commenced bantering
her with regard to shooting. She smiled, and said
she was as good a shot as was in the woods, and to
convince me, she took out her hunting Knife and
cut a ring four inches i:i diameter in a tree, with
a small shot in the centre. Then stepping back
thirty yards, and drawing one of her pistols, put
both balls inside the ring. She then, at thirty-five
rods fr? m the tree, put a ball from her nfie in the
veiy centre. We shortly came to her fathers house
and 1 gladly accepted an invitation to stop there
over night. The maiden hunter, instead ol sit
ting down to rest, as most hunters do when they
go home,' remarked that she had the chores to do.
So out she went; fed, watered and stabled a pair
of young horses, a yoke of oxen and two cows.?
She then went to the saw-mill, and brough: a slab
on her shoulder that 1 should not liked to cairy,
and with an axe and saa soon worked it into sti ve
Her firs! business was to chunge htr dress and
get tea, which she did in a manner which would
have been creditable to a more scientific cook.?
After tea she finished up her usual house work, and
then sat down ami commenced plying her needle
ii. a very lady like manner. 1 ascertained that Iter
mother was quite feeble, and her father conl.ned
to the house with rheumatism. The whole ?amily
were intelligent, well educated, aud communica
tive. They had moved from Schoharie Ci uuty in
to the woods abrut three years I elore, and the fa
ther was taken lame the first winter after tl eu ar
rival, and had not been able to do anything since.
Lucy Ann, as her mother called her, has taken
charge of, ploughed, planted and harvested the
farm, learned to chop wood, drive team aud do all
necessary work. Game being plenty, she learned
I to use her father's rifle, and speut some of her lei
sure time in hunting. She had not killed a deer yet,
but expressed her determination to kill one before
New Year's. She boasted of having killed any
quantity of partridges, squirrels and other small
game. Alter chatting some time, she brought a
violin from a closet, and played lilteen or tv enty
tuncs, and also sang a lew songs, accouipanyiug
herself on the violin in a style that slowed she
was far from destitute of musical skill. After
spendtngTa pleasant evening we retired. The next
morning she was up at 1 o'clock, and before sun
r.se had break fas: out of the way, aud all her work
out of dcors aud in the house done, and when I
leit, a few minutes after sunrise, she hail on her
suit, aud was loading her rille for another chase
j alter the deer.
A Painful Interview.
Speaking of the omission, in nil the lives written
upon Alexander Hamilton, o( the name of his wile,
reminds me of a thrill.ng and painful incident, to
which I was an * eye witness, connected with that
ludy, (who by the wnj^l suppose few will need be
informed was before marriage, n daughter of Gen
eral Schuyler, of Albany.) About the year l?2*2,
as near as 1 can recollect, I was on board one of
tl e old Fulton & Livingston line of boats, (say the
James Kent or ihe Chancellor Livingston,) on my
.voy from New Yolk to Albany. All who traveled
in those days, will recollect that the dinner hour
was quite as inteiesting as now. The ladies were
of course provided lor first, and the gentlemen
who stood neAr the foot of the tables, could crowd
upon ihe back seats, (so they respectfully retreat
ed as the ladies came down,) until the latter were
all sealed; then such as were not crowded off,
could take a seat on the signal being given.
Among the first that were passing up next to the
berths and back of one table was Aaron Burr, and
it was my lot to be next to him. We got as far up
as those ahead of us could go, before coming to
seats occupied by ladies on that side, and came to
stand facing the table. At that moment there
came down opposte to us a large lady, rich y dress
ed in black, and veiled, and while yet standing, di
lectly.opposte to Burr, she put her veil aside, and
raising her eyes across the table she saw, with his
eyes directly upon her, Aaron Burr, and only sepa
rated by the width of the table. She gave a loud
scream and fell, but there being quite a number
s ending by, they caught her, and took her out.?
The boat was then about approaching Newburgh,
and she insisted on being put ashore at once, as
she could go no further with Burr 011 board, and it
was done as she wished.
During the whole scene at the trble, Burr stood
like a statute, looking on with a stoic-like indiffer
ence and composure, never moving a muscle. As
soon as Mis. Hamilton was removed he sat down
and ate n hearty dinner, and went his way as
But to say I relished and enjoyed my dinner,

the nistory "of the fatal duel rushing through my
mind, 1 cannot.
It was remarked .it the time that Mrs. Hamilton
s-aid it was the first time she had set eyes 011 Aaron
Burr since-the day he killed her husband, and no
doubt it was the last.?Cor. of the Detroit big.
UNDioxiriKD Sneizino.?During the progress of
the examination of .Miukhouse and Leary, for an
outrage upon an idiot girl, ns reported elsewhere,
some pe rson or persons, not having n due sense of
the awful majesty of the law, or the dignity of the
court, scattered a villainous mixture of snuff,
Cayenne pepper, May-berry bark, and most prob
ably a slight sprinkling of cowage about ihe room.
It happened at the time, that the u^dience was ex
tremely large, aiut of that mixed description that
. generahy congregate about the purlieu of a court
of justice. The insinuating dust soon began to
take effect, and a concert of sneezing mixed with
coughing, first amongst the oulsidtrs, made it im
possible to understand one word Irom judge, law
yer, witness or prisoner.
"Silence!" shouted the marshal.
"Si-ah-ch-chi chee-lence," suetzed the deputy.
By this time the epidemic.had extended lo with
inside the bar, and there was us much coughing
and sneezing as ever w as heard within tho House
of He|iresentatives durii g a prosy speech of au
"Open the-ugh-win cl.ee-chee-dow, oh Lord,"
exclaimed the prosecuting a'.toruey.
"X suggest nh-chee-te-tfcat they be-ohiU turned

The judge, who by this time had coughed and
sneezed until his face was as red as the comb ol a
turkey cock, was struck by the idea, and a posse of
officers being culled from below, cleared the room
of the unhappy multitude, who upon their egress
into the ureet gave such a conceded diabolical
sneeze, that a couple of horses that were hitched
outside, became scertd, and breaking their bridles

What is Dirt?
Old Dr. Cooper, of South Carolina nsed to say
to his students:
Don't be afraid of a little dirt, gentlemen.
What is dirt? Why, nothing at all offensive,
when ch miol y viewed. Ru!> a little alkali upon
that "dirty (.rease spot" upon your coat, aud it
undergoes a chemical change and becomes soap.
Now rub it with a little water, and it disappears;
it is neither grease, soap, water nor dirt. "That
is not a very odorous pile cf dirt," you observe,
there. Well, scatter a little gypsura over jt, and
it is no longer dirty. Everything "you call dirt is
worth your notice as students of chemistry.?
Analyze it! - It will separate into very clsau ele
Dirt makes com; corn makes bread and meat, and

lUTigorntlng Elixir or Cordial.
If there be "a special Providence in the fall of a spar
row," so is there also in the plucking of an herb. What
now would be the condition of thousands, if Dr. Mor*e,
in his oriental wanderings, had not discovered the plant
which gives to his 1 nv'go rating Elixir or Cordial its ex
traordinary potency in functional diseases? lie found the
production growing and in use among a race remarkable for
longevity and for exemption from the diseases of civilized j
life. Ho nude many inquiries as to the cffdct produced by ]
this herb, and the replies convinced him that it possessed
restorative and vitalizing properties heretofore unheard of
except in fable. Having concentrated the juice of the plant,
and combined it with otliei vegetable extracts, he com
menced experimenting with the compound upon hiime'f
and others. Pinally he presented to the world the Invigo
rating Elixir; and what is all his fame as a philosopher J
and traveler, compared with that which he will derive^
from the intioduction of this rejuvenating piepaiationl?
Age and decripitude feel new lilc stirring within them, un.i
dcrtheinfluei.ee of its unrivalled cxhileiunl. The trem.i
bling, sliabiug, dc*paiiing, strcngthless victim ol nervous 1
disease is enabled to throw off the incubus that was press 4
iug him to the eartn; the dyspeptic patient feels his appe-'t
tile return, and the power of digestion with if; and wo J
man, suffering under the tortures of hysteria, or any ol the 1
debilitating complaints or disabilities which belong to her
sexually, experiences in every fibre of her shattered sys- j
teni the restorative cffects of this peerless remedy.
The Cordial is put up, highly coiic ntrated, in pint bot
tles. Price three dollars per bottle, two ror five dollars,
8ix for twelve dollars. C. H. RING, Proprietor,
