We find lutle to notice in th? trade this week, which still continues dull and unskilled. No change is anticipated until after tne disposition cl tolls and freights by our transporting companies. which will, in all probability not take place until wuhin a tew uays of the opening of navigation, and the rates to be established will chietly depend upon the state of the market then. The shipments from the Schuylkill region, although, perhaps, too heavy for the gi*.d of the trade, are considerably less than they were this season last year, and will probably continue to be until prices become more remunerative and the demand increases In the Lehigh region there i? still very liuie doing, and the production only about half as large as it was this time last year, but it is supposed that operations will shortly be resumed, unless the operatives should refuse to work at wages warranted by ibe present prices of coal. We hear of nothing enconraging from New York. Very little, if anything, is doing n the wholesale trade there, and the stocks *et on hand are supposed to be ullicient for another month.

It appears that the accused took a dislike to Mr Mills, who had seen fit to reprimand itiem for misbehaviour, and determined to punish him for so doing. They met him after school hours and gave him a thrashing, using slates and books in the assault. The lads had a hearing and were held in $5(0 bail each to answer at court. T. iriv Laws.?The Massachusetts State Senate, by a yea and nay vote of IS to 14. passed a bill on Friday repealing the usury laws. Several amendments to fix a deMnite rate of interest were rejected. The bill has yet to be acted on by the Mouse, but that branch last week passed a bill raising the rate, aiid it will probably pa-s the Senate bill. The N-w York Legislature, by Its merchants, bangers, and by borrowers, as well as by leaders of money, have beeu urged to lepeal the usury laws for fifteen years, or more, bu: so far without success. A CRfEL Act.?In Providence, Wednesday night, newly-born twins were left in a willow basket, by some person unknown, at a lady's residence. There was a note from the mother In the basket stating that necessity compelled her to do as she had done, and expressing a desire that the children should be taken care of by a person of Koman Catholic faith. One of them was already dead from the effects of exposure. The other infant was so chilled that it is hardly expected to survive.

Mrs, Nugent, the < hilri Murderess. This unfortuna e woman, at present confined in Wheeling jail on ttie charge of murdering her child, is almost daily visited by ladies, who desire to administer to her comfort. She is more talkative of late, and when the sad subject of the death of tbe ?btld is broached, she freely expresses herself asunder the belief that it was the best thing that conld have befallen the little angel, as she knows it is now in Heaven, and had it lived she fears it conld have never reached *hat blest abode. Since her imprisonment Mrs. Nugent has written what she terms her "life."' The writings till some forty or fifty pages of foolscap, and abounds in incidents of woe and sadness She begins with her cbildnood, and follows herself up to the Wheeling jail. Sbes;ysber parents never treated her wuh kindness, and as a consequence her stay at home was one of trouble and trial. At the early age of seventeen she became acquainted with Nugent: her pnrents oppo>ea his visits, and often drove her from the bouse. When about eighteen she ran away ard married, and since that time her parents, brothers or sisters have never cpoiten to her, and she has never returned home. Soon af'er her marriage her husband begun a lite of intemperance aud dissipation, ana since that time she has led a miserable life. A few weeks before Mrs. N. came to Wheeling, her husband went oft down the river, and in great distress she came to the determination to end her own life and the life of her child. Wi'b the circumstances of the sa l infanticide, and the subsequent arrest of the marderess, our readers are all familiar. The "life" abounds in repetitions, and bears every evidence ot having been penned under feeling* of the most abject woe. Some portions ot it, however, are well written, and show tnat at times she has a clear mind and steady nerves Some of the feeder lines of poe'ry interspersed through the pages are well worded, ami full of love to the "dear little babe that lies under the mound."'?l'\tttl>urg KcfiuOlic.

Here- I with 1 give yon additional and accurate information ot the terrible calamity that be:?*i tue l~tb United States infantry on the 21st day of December, 1!-G6, at or near Fort Phil. Kearney in Dakotah Territory. On that ill-fated day tbe Indians made an amack on tbe wood train ot the aforesaid post. Colonel H H Carrington, commandant, sent ont reinforcements to assist the guard of tbe wood train. The in. dians numbered fifty, the reinforcing party numbering eighty-one men, including officers and citizens. As soon as the Indians perceived that wejwere in close quarters, they began to retreat. Our men followed them. The Indians en'ered a ravine, our men still following. The Indians had two thousand warriors concealed in the ravine. The troops were permitted to enter tne defile until they were carefully and hopelessly snrronaded Then commenced one of the most terrible haiid-to.band|flghts ever recorded in the history of Indian warfare. Our eighty-one whiles repulsed two thousand Indians in three successive charges.: but the fourth charge was too mncb for them. Owing to tbe overwhelming numbers and disadvantageous ground, our men could sustain themselves noloager They were killed and sculped to a man. Not one was left to tell tbe tale of blood. The post was too weak to send assistance to those poor fellows. They w ere horribly mutilated. There was but one eye witness to this fight. Dr. Hlnes, he being at a distance from those men engaged. He states that our men fought desperately. The Indians kept an bundred men busy carrying off their dead and wounded. It is a supposition that tbe loss of ihe Indians amounted to IdOktlledand wounded. The tact, however, is not easily ascertained, as they carry off their d<*d and wounded on purpose to keep them from being seen or their number known.?Fori R?n?C?r. L juuville Journal. Hmiso a Bkae is Vermont awd Finding a Panther ?A correspondent in Wmdeor, Vermont, givesan acoountofaremark&ble bunt which came off at Weathersfield on Thursday last. On Wednesday afternoon a party of hunters discovered what they supposed to be a bear track, which crossed the road twice within sight of Downer's Hotel, in Weathersfield They followed it up the side of a steep bill for about forty rods, aud found it led into a cave, through the mouth of which the animal bad evidently passed several times. A dog was sent into "the cave, harsh growling ensued, aiut the dog beat a basty retreat. The hunters concluded to close the month of the cave, and pay his supposed bear, ship another visit on the^ollowing morning. Accordingly on Thursday a party numbering one hundred and fifty went to the cave, and having worked a hole through the top of the cave with an iron bar. an a?h stake was Inserted, which vis immediately seized bv the animal and a i.-.rge p-ece torn out of it. a green crooked stick was then put lato the hole which the animal grappled, and was thus drawn to the hole by the hunters, who fired a ball from a revolver into his head The yelling and screaming which ensued from the eursged animal was ludescribable. Again the stick was introduced which was again seized, and the animal brought within reaca of another charge. This finished htm, for he tell back, gave one awfnl yell and was heard no more. On being brought out of the cave the hunters were astonished at finding?not a bear, but a large male panther, seven feet long from tip to tip, thirty-three inches high, and, though rather thin in flesh, weighing lbs. This was the largest panther ever killed In the State. Thompson, in his account of tbe animal, says tbe average weight of a full grown panther is one hundred pounds, and tbe largest be ever knew killed in tbe State weighed one hundred and eighteen pounds.
