On the night of the Dili Inst., a quantity of money and n gold and silver watch were stolen from Sim w's hotel. The author of the theft hai been stopping in our city for soma days rnt, under the assumed name of Kingold. t hnsstncu been ascertained, however, that he is the notorious Yulcntine llurke. After Liking the goods he went to the river ond took a skill, and was supposed to havo gone down the river. 1'uMuit was made, with what nucrrs wo are unable to determine, oi the parly in pursuit has not yet returned.

THE PACIFIC RAILROAD VERY GOOD AGAIN. If there exists tiny doubt that the adiiiiuistra tion is fairly in for the Pacific Railroad, tho fol lowing from the Washington Union ( which w e uppose, is authoritative in this instance) would be conclusive: It may turn out, and we think it tirobablv will, '.hat the determination of the tro eminent lo furnish tllcetiial aid in the construction of a raiiroad through ils own territory, wherein lie me great physical obstacles, will give to the eie tcrin isc so much certainty of success, that indi vidua! und municipal capital will bo enabled to construct not only one, but many divercine tracks tnroiigii the Mates through whoso terri tory il may pass. In that event tho original strict doctrine ol construction stand intact. 11 il become necessary, however, for the govern ment to give aid to private capital to promote the euteriirisR in the Stales, then it does not fol low that mi appropriation from the Trrusury is essential the aid may be derived from the ruth-1 lie lands of those Slates; and, in that even!, the old strict construction principle may not be dis turbed, if ut. even il it becomes essential, in or der to insure the success of the enterprise, that money hliould be appropriated by the gov ernment to be expended in uid of llio work in the MuUj, it may be lound, upon careful inves tigation, that, the power to protect our Pacific pof sessions, in obedionco to an express trut as. sinned by the government, may so far be regard ed us a spccilic l or rxpnss grant in the con stitution us to authorize the onnronrialion.

TH5 WORKINGS OF THE MAINE LAW.

II. C Tillon. He is one of the prominent clergymen in luuine, ami uas taken an active part in the tera neronce movement.

We learn from tho Memphis Appeal, that Mr. C. C. Baylor, a gentleman of character and epittation in that city, has recently delivered a Icoture at Holly Springs, Miss., on the wisdom and ncceisiiy of exempting negroes from sal under execution for debts of their ewtier. Two objects are proposed by this movement ono to ubate the clamors of the abolitionists Hgainst the force separation of families; and tho other to Increase the number of slaveholders, by exempting the poorer whites from the loss of their slaves, in consequence of debt. The pro posal is said to have secured the approval of dis tinguished gentlemen at the South, and a for mal uppcal to slaveholders for their approbstiorjy s soon to be made in the Baltimore Cotton Plant er, so far as it goo, tins is a movement in th right direction.
