The place of mooting is the Baptist Church

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

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,

searched, had declared that the thici had
tolen a coul from him nnd all the uionev
he had. These tacts, though thev wern not

that l.o was In Mime wnv commoted with

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

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

old strict construction principle may not be dis

money hliould be appropriated by the gov

TH5 WORKINGS OF THE MAINE LAW.
A correspondent of the Detroit Tribune, in
writing lo that paper, August 1st, says:
A day or two ago I received a communication
from one ol my IriciiJs, residing in Rockland,
in the State of Maine, in which ure some state
ments in reference to the celebrated Maine Law,
winch 1 thought would interest your readers,
The writer of the communication is Rev. II. C
Tillon. He is one of the prominent clergymen in
luuine, ami uas taken an active part in the tera
neronce movement. The following aro extracts
from his letter, and arc important to us, because
they come Trom an eye witness, on the spot
where the law originated, mid where it is now
in operation

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.
