TH NO. 5285. Our CJerninn Correspondence. Stutoabd. October 30, 1848. TTit " Stamp Law"?Resumption of the Sessions of the " Land it and(legislature) of IVart emberg?A Ni to Miracle?Doings of the National Convention?Affairs in Vienna?News of JHicker't Arrival m JNero York, fyc. To what extent we are to be benefited by the acts of the National Parliament, may be inferred by the passage of a new law, or rather the revival of an old one, by the *4 Landbtand" of Wurtem. berg, relaiive to the press. You will recollect in what decisive, plain, and emphatic terms the ' perfect and unlimited freedom of the press" was guarantied to the German nation by the Parliament, not more than about two months ago. As near as I can remember the precise words of the act, it runs thus-.?" The perfect liberty of communicating his thoughts, ideas, and opinions, either vetbally, by means of writing, signs, or through the press; is guarantied and secured to every German citizen unci subject, ana neither ax, security, nor censorship shall in any way be Buffered to interfere with the perfect and most unlimited freedom of the press." The law goes on to enumerate every possible manner in which this liberty may be attacked or annulled, and to forbid every one of them as distinctly as possible, so no one would have dreamed of being able to evade itc provisions. In spite of this law, and directly in opposition to it, the cabinet of wurtemberg have published a decree, according to which eveiy periodical "dealing in politics" is subject to the imposition of a stamp tax, amounting to 30 kranzardu, (about 20 cents,) a year for each subscriber, making, in some instances, tiie sixth pirt ol the subscription price ! The effect of this law in more deplorable and more dangerous th in even the old system of censorship was, by which every article waB suppressed that in the least opposed the government or its functionaries, for it entirely abolishes all the minor papers in the whole kingdom, and leaves one servile, creeping organ of the Ministry, the "Schcrabitrht Merkur," in undisputed possession of the whole field. But it is not only for 1111a v ia tn Ko rtairl Y\\r nrnnri. etors oi political papers; no, the "liberal" and "high-minded" cabinet intends to collect this tax for the period of 15 years previous to its enforcement! It is very evident what if meant by this unheard of proceeding on the part of the government. In Stutgard, there appear two journals, which may be said to be the leading organs of the parties, the Sch. Mtrkur alluded to, and the Beobachter ; the former, the 6emi-olTicial organ of the cabinet, the latter, the principal paper of the democratic, or, as it is called by the conservatives, the plebeian party. The Metkur is led and fattened by all sorts oi official patronage, so that its proprietor has beccme one ot the richest men in the country, and finds himself very comfortable in the enjoyment oi his office; while the Beobachter, left to V*. rnno I f onJ KolvtfV mirKuiU] tllO hoot t ti*A UilllDCil) (U1U UClll^y pviuuj'U) n?v wvw? vut>vw in Germany, is continually at warfare with the former, ana takes the liberty of occasionally saying bitttr truths to the members of the cabinet, as well as other high f unctionaries whom the Merkur is in duty bound to defend. The revival of the stamp law was thus hit upon (by suggestion of the JMtntur itself!) to get rid of this troublesome paper; for if the Beoburhtcr be made to pay the above tax for the lattfilteen yearn, it is utterly impossible that it exist any longer. The price of papers is so low in this country, that any farther imposition of a tax inevitably causes the ruin of all, save the official organ, the Merkur, which will, ia this event, stand alone, and be without competition.? The Lwniltafc has refused to repeal this law, on the ground of "financial difficulties !" Beautiful fruits of the revolution! Mo6t responsible ministers ! Unheard of liberty of the press! Last Thursday ('.he 24th) the legislature met, after its recess of three weeks, The whole of last week was spent in ccb:iting the propriety of abolishing the laws in relation to the chtise. It is now resolved, that "tvery man have the right to hunt upon his own property," (including, probably, the right to catch rats and mice in his own house, and Heaa in his bed.) As ridiculous as this solemn concession of a legislative body may appear to some of the backwoodsmen of the United States, it is nevertheless a great relief to all of our peasants and farmers, who have heretofore been much troubled and sustained serious damage by the game, which they were forbidden, on pain of tenyvare' incarceration, to kill or hunt! The right of chase was an exclusive privilege of the nobility, the King and his favorites. An illustrative anecdote waB told me some time ago, by a farmer, who had very cunningly evaded the law in regard to the above. He set numerous traps for the hares and rabbits that had done much injury to his young trees and shrubbery, taking very little care to conceal his proceedings. The officer appointed to guard the game, soon discovered it, went to his liouse, and asked him if it was true that he was in the habit of catching hares. The peasant admitted it. Whereupon the officer reported him to the proper authority; he was seized and tried ; but after again acknowledging that he had often caught rabbits and hares, he proved that lie had never k llled any, but only gave them a smart switching, to warn them not to intrude upon his premises again ! Of course, he was dismissed ; there beine no law to prevent the switching of bares. In to-day's Beef ion of the legislature, the discussion ot the above law is continued. It is made the pretence for many attacks upon the nobility; and qneetionR, principles, and matters, are debated, in utter defiance ot all parliamentary rules, which have no more to do with the cnase, than the American Congress with oysters and turtle-soups. The days of miracles are not yet over. We have had one here latfly, that shames the celebrated "Coat of Trier" out of countenance. AtWeissenau, in the Oberamt (county) llavensburtr, a girl of about 20 years of age, came to the priest of that place, and conlessed that she was infeatad with a bad spirit, ptobably Beelzebub himself. Her father, as she stated, had bartered away her soul to the devil; on the way to a certain chapel, where he intended to to deliver her to the orphan asylum, he made an incision in her finger, and signed the contract with her own blood. Since that time, the devil exerted infinite power over her ; was continually plaguing and torturing her; but, also, occasionally vaTCQ liti me, ill picvruuii<; iut irom ui?>wiiiiik? wh.n she had jumped into the river, <Vc. The priest took pity on the poor creature, prayed for and with her day and niglit, and soon succeeded in 90 far subduing the devd, that he ceased cursing and blaspheming. At last, the poor girl is so terrified, that she wnthes and groans in her agony, and Item 1 ts to jumw out of the window. In tins emergency, the lloly Virgin appeared to the unhappy victim, (whether 111 the presence ot the priest or not, I could not ascertain,) and pointed out the means by which she might be perfectly saved. fche related to Iter, that ?bout 32 years ago, her father lud stolen a valuable crucifix, a Madonna, and a birchen rod, from the church at Merpentheim, buried them in the Eglinoger Heath, and that as long as these articles were not du<j up and brought to the convent oi Einsiedel, th" dv;I would continue to have power over her. Accordingly, the priest sallied out. and after various ceremonies, produced the articles in the presence of, at least, 1,400 persons, who had come to witness the miracle. The girl immediately swooned away, the p. ie?t examined the crucifix, the rod, and Madonna, and lo! they were in as perfect a state of preservation u<* if th"y had been buried hut a day previously. From that moment. the girl was radically lnaled. It if to be wi-hed and hoped that this diabolical business b? more caiefully examined, and ihe renl devil ascertained Meanwhile, the National Parliament continue*, in its ?low and tedioua pace, in the discussion of the German constitution. The critical position of Anuria, the difficulty, whether AuHtria is to be admitted into the confederacy as ii wliol* ami undivided monarchy, or whether Gallicia, Hungary, 4rc , all foreign nation*, and having nothing in commoi with the Germans except being subject to the same Emperor witii the German part of Austria, he excluded, presents a knotty point for the solution cf our imbecile statesman. This is the first obstacle in the way of the gn at "union," bo much talked of, and so very improbable. If Austria be nnttiAen into the confederacy, with all its foreign element*, as a counterbalance of the ambitious Prussia, it is to be feared, that the latler State will gain such an ascendancy in our counsels, that Fruwin will not become German, bu Germany l'ru&a:a?. Desides, it is very uncertain whether Austria can be reconciled to a representation based exclusively upon its German population. I'mst-ia and Austria are tljr Athens r.d Ltcedemmia of the German Confederacy; and as the contention lor the tsccnriency of these two republics, in the ancient Grecian Coutederution, proved the ruin of the wholr nation, so they threaten to prove an unconquerable barrier to the realisation of the German union. In the sessions of the 27th Gctober, the 2d section of the constitution was parked, in the lolJowiP0 wt>ni0 i " 9ec. 2. No pari ol the German E NE MOUNT Empire, (Rtirh) can be united or connected with a foreign, (1. e. u 'not German,') mate." ?ec 3 ordains that, "when any German country, or state, has the fame sovereign, or government, with a foreign state, the relation of the two states shall be settled according to the principles of personal iinion." (What is meant by " personal , union," 1 am at a loss to explain, not knowing myjself ) The first of the above paragraphs passed the convention by a majority of 340 to 7l>; the latter was passed by 31W to 96 votes. I give you a brief review of the news from Vienna which lias reached us during the last week.# Oct. 19?The retreat of the Hungarians to their own territory is confirmed. It is rumored, that the Hungarians were negotiating with his majebty, the Emperor, at Allmuetz; and that his majesty promised to treat them lenicnt!y, on con- i dition of unconditional surrender and obedience to his orders Minister Hombaitl was heard to be at Gmurden. The Reichstag negotiated with Auersjerg; he declared, that he intended to remain in defensive rosition, and await the orders of the Emperor. The ambassadors, Welekerand fr#im the Nuiuinsil Purliiiment at Frankfort. liad issued un adcirets to the population of Vienna, dated.Patsun, lf)ih October. 20th October.?Vienna is in a perfiict state of siege; the communication is suspended, provisions are gelling scarce, and aid is not exacted irom any quarter. Still, the inhabitants are as brave and anxious for the fight us ever. A proclamation from the Emperor, demanding.the dissolution ol the academic legion and suspension of nli public journals, caused great excitement and indignation. Deputation after deputation is sent iron the Reichstag to the Emperor. The northern railroad is abolished by the troops, to prevent the arrival ol succors to the Viennoise, and the communication with the north is thus completely cut off, The ambassadors of the National Parliament sent to the Emperor at Olmuetz. A regiment of Upper Austrians, ordered against Vienna, declared to be willing to fight f or, but not against the inhabitant:. (Jen.

The ravages of the troops have caused great commotions at* 15 ruenn.

A new election has been ordered for all distiicts whose representatives left tne Reichstag out of fear or from principle.

His proclamation oftne 19th was referred to as hi? ultimatum 22d October ?Prince Windischgraetz proclaimed the city to be in a state of siege, and martial law. The Reichstag declared this proclamation to be illegal and unconstitutional. An engagement was expected; the alarm bells were tolled, and everybody prepared for battle. In one of the additions (Nueedorf) an action did take place, arising from the desertion of some soldiers, who were fired upon by Auersperg's men. On the 23d and 24th the city was in uncommon excitement; on the morning of the 24th the conflict began. After a short cannonade, the royal troops took the Taber bridge, and advanced into the Leonoldt-tadt. No further news of the termination has reached us here. The inhabitants of Vienna are brave, and resolved to die or conquer; if they are subdued, Vienna will have ceased to be a German city. Mt;rder of John Hughes.?On Sunday night last, John Hughes, a colored man, and for several years past porter at the Tioga County Houso. in thin vi]lage. was stabbed in the side and neck with a dirk knife, by James Carll, mulatto, on the earner of Ithaca and Main streets, the latter wound severing the carotid artery, and causing his immediate death. The circumstances, as appeared from the testimony before the coroner's inquest on Monday, were substantially as follows: Caril and William Brown walked from the colored church with a couple of oolored girls living at the Tioga County Howe. They were met in front of the house by John, who spoke to the girls, telling them to go in, (sc.. when, throwing oil his coat (as testified by Brown) he started cn towards Main street, in pursuit of Carll. Brown being a short distance in advance, remarking as lie smarted, "I'll be damned if 1 won't whip him," which throat, however, was not beard by Mr Logan and other boarders at the County House, who were attentive spectators of the whole scene. John came up with Carll on the outside of the walk opposite Colonel Rockwood's, when Carll struck him In the left side, turning him off the walk scTtral feet; but, recovering himself, after whirling around in a manner at the time unaccountable to the witneises. he made his way baok to the sidewalk, again coming up with Carll just as the latter had turned the earner of Ithaca and Main sts., when Carll gave him a blow over the left shoulder.and started acrots towards Dean's eorner, stopping sbout in the middle of the street, as if waiting the result. John threw up his bands, and said, " I am stabbed wltnesfes at tbe same time discovering the blood gushing frcm tl>e wound. One of the gentlemen prose nt askt d Carll if he was the pirson who had stabbed Jobn. and he answered. - 1 am the man !" and setoff cn a run down Lake street. An effort was made to telp John tack to the County House, but he had walked onlv a few steos around the corner, when, be coming weak lrcm the lou of blood, be fell upon bis face. exclaiming. " O. my God !" and expired befor* tbe Arrival cf a physician Mr. Robert E Logan testint d that he witnessed the whole affair?that be was within ttn feet of tbe parties from tbe time they left the County Heu e until John received his mortal wound, and that tbe latter gave no blow,er menacing gesture. or threat ot any kind ; and It ia conceded on all bands that he was a man of good disposition, and cntiielv inoffensive, if there had been any previous misunderstanding between him and Carll, it did not eppear on the examination before the inquest.? We could not look upon the care in any other light than that fit willul and preAeditated murder. and such was the verdict of th? coroner's jnry. after a full and careful Investigation of the farts of tbe eare. When Carll le t the scene of the bloody tragedy in wbich he was the principal, he was pursued through Lake street by one of the geitiemen who witnessed tbe scene, but had got so far tbe start that it waj uncertain which direction be took on arriving at Maine street, so that the puiFuit wa- abandoned until Monday morning when the Deputy Sheriff put out a handbill offering a reward of $11C for tbe ariest of the murderer, and various persons started in search of him in different directions. all tf whom returned on Tuesday without having obtained any tracc of hitn On Wednesday mcrcing. however, at about five o'clock, the gaoler v. as surprised by the appearanos of the culprit in charge tf a Mr. Campbell, who lives about five miles fiom this vi)Iif.-e, on the Ithaca turnpike, where, discovering a light, he bad entered tbe house for the purpose cf warming him;e1f and procuring some refreshments, representing that he wa* a runaway slave, on biavtay to Canada, and that he had partaken of to K eel flnre Mindly noon? the iait part of wbiob won undoubtedly true enough.

This romantic spot was, yesterday, with the 1 usral ceremonies, dedicated to the burial of the dead.

He spoke of the quiet r?sting of the dead, and made a beautiful tain n tiom hiik White. He said that only a lew evenings since, he was speaking wiih his daughter on ihe subject of the grave, when he asked her where f-he would most wish to rest? whether in the city grave-yard, or in the rural ceineteiy. In a thcrt<ime,tne replied as follows:?

That ethereal train would be led by the great seer snd lather of the eastern wcrld. Heaven itself became his biographer, and inspiration the historian of the first rural cemetery ever founded?"

And Abraham stood up and showed himself to the children of Heth, and he ccmmused with them, saying?If it be your mind that I should bury my dead, hear me, and entreat for me to Ephron, the son of 2ohar, that he may give me the cave of Macpelah, that is by tbe end of his field, for a? much money as It is worth, he shall give it me for a poisession of a burying place. And Ephron answered?Nay, my lord, hear me. The field give 1 thee, and the cave that is therein; 1 give It thee in the presenoe of tbe sons of my people?bury thy dead. And Abrabsm bowed hirnreU' before the people of tbe land and k,Id?

And Abraham weighed to Ephron <00 shekels of silver, current money with the merchants, and he purchased the field and the cave, and all the trees that were in the field, that were in all the borders about, were made sure unto Abraham for a possession for a burying place.'* Such is the touobing story of the most ancient rural cemetery of whioh history speaks.

Miss Mary Taylor, one of the greatest favorites on the stage, In the cltv. iu the character of Su<-an Nipper, stands Ubrivalled. She " may not be a Metbusaleui, nor yet a <bildin arms,'' but she wott c< rtaluly sustains the character in a stjle that would reflect credit upon the in) rt experienced actre-s. in the line in which she plays. Mr. Ciilbert, as Doinbey. manifests most perfectly all tbu unreasonable acts ef the tyrant husband and aristocrat, while Mr. Chapman, as Bob. keeps the bouse convulsed with laughter throughout every fcene in vhfrh be appears. The piece Is admirably cast, and placed in such good taUe, that it nightly gains grenter favor with the audience. The favorite drsma of the Old (iuard" followed, Mr. Plaride as Havertack. In tliia character Mr. P stands ucrivalhd. It was received throughout with the greatt at demonstrations of applaune. Justice compels ue to say, tbnt Mr. llamblin's untiring energy and perseverance, have made the Tark one of the most delightful and enviable theatres in the country, the crniequeuce ct which is the most unprecedented and unparallvd ?nccepa His endeavors are appreciated by a dircriminating public, wko. lor the oianaio euUrtamment* he prefents. arts luling bin cotTera with gold ? Success to the Tark. ?uwkhy Thutri ?The new drama of ' Koie Clinton" has proved must successful at this homo, and the mott enthuiiastio applause in bestowed on it every evening, particularly on the last act, in which the sceneaare most exciting. All the perforate in it do their parts moit admirably. It in somewhat invidious to particularize, where all act so well, but we must accord the higheit praise to Mwssrs Clarke, Hall. Dull. Winans. Miss Whibjm, Mrs. Sutherland, and Mrs. Jordan, who played the more prominent parts. The filece M put on the stage in fine atyle. The farce of be ' Iluppy Man" wan neit played, and Barney Will-am*' pertoimance of the happy Paddy wan mo-t admirable. Mr. Williams, during hi* present engagerent, baa added mueh to his reputation as a comedian, and we hare no doubt that he will be fully appreciated wherever he may play during his contemplated tour southward, lie will take hia farewell benefit this evening, and presents a One bill on the occasion, viz: 1 Rose Clinton," the "Irish Ambassador," "Horn to (iocd Luck." and a concert by the New OrIt una Serenaders. Mr. U. W. Smith will also dance a grand Pas dt Matt lot. Mr. Williama will play Sir Patiick O'Plenipo, and I'audeen O Kafferty, both of which characters be ia competent to plav in first rate style. The concert by the Serenadera. who bare gained mch a grtat reputation by their elegant perioral ances during ui jam tone weens, win aiso ue (juice a f? ature in the evening's performances. With such a bill, and cn t-u:h an occasion, we trust the house will be crowded in every- part. Broadway Theatre.?The bills for this theatre, last night, announced two pieces of Irish peculiarities, u Rory O'Mor?," and the ' Irish Tutor;" and no exertion on the part of the managers, was omitted to place them on the stage with appropriate effect, embracing in all the characters the talented stock company of the establishment, and presenting, in the scenery, an adaptation that reflects much credit upon the enterprising proprietor. We presume that these pieces, which formed the fundamental bails of the dramatic reputation of ono whose talents cannot be eclipsed and Kill ever be cherished in the memory of those who sympathize in his unhappy and premature fate, were designed to Introduce to the public another candidate for the crown that fell from the head of the not-to-be-imitated and ever-to-be-lamented 1'ower. TV V,,.? Via fn hroatho th? UnffllSffA And nttrfitPtn the character, In purity, of the Irishman, in all "his glory." in all his dignity, all imitation* are vain, the public are disheartened with them?and, with one or two exceptions, the spirit has fled with him who postested it. Mr. Macarthy falls far short of what appears to ur the representative of '-Rory O'More," or ' Dr. O'Toole." He possesses a fund of natural humor, which he exercises "ad lihilum," and with some tact ; but hi:- provincialisms are Intolerable, and his brogue bread, ev*n to excess. Of his musloal pretensions, tbe public are the best critic*. It is fruitless for mtr. ngt rs to expect or actors to hope for suocess, unless they can realise something more than a caricature of the honest, unsophisticated Irishman ; and we rejoice to find that a respite to such a course is inferred (rem tbe ever gratifying announcement that Mr. Murdoch will appear this evening, in the character of ' Richelieu," in which, we believe, he is no counterfeit?purtly original, and as purely American. He stands on bis owu merits, and by tllem lets hlmnelf be weighed in tbe balance of popalar estimation. National Theatre.?From pit to gallery, this hou.-e was perfectly crammed last evening, by a most respectable audience, and from the way in which the shouts of laughter pealtd forth, we should say there was not a single Individual of them but was thoroughly pleaded with tbe evening's entertainments. Yankee Hill was in his best vein, end as Return Strong, in the farce o ''C ut and Come Again," which was played first, he waB most inimitable. He certainly can personate the down-easter with as much raclness and humor as any Lctor we ever saw; he gives his words the true Yankee twang, and when he t-ujs a good thing, his jovial face se? vat radiant with tbe fun. We must net omit noticing Mrs. Chapman's very excellent personation of ine l anme nouhewur; utr pari. *u uut ? luun van, (till I i r ill in her actions. *nd tone of voice, were the Yankee all over. Mr* Chapman bit become a great favorite at the National, and is a very excellent and useful actress "New York aa It I*," the farce of the ''Yankee Pedlar," aid the burlesque of the '"Lady of the Lions'' formed the rest of the entertainments We need not say that they all went off with great eclat? as everj thing that is undertaken at the National is (lone well. To-night, the drama of the 'Green Mountain Boy." "New York as It.Is," and -'New No- ' tions," will form the bill. Mr. Mill will appear in the fiut and Isst pieces. Oriat preparations are making Ur ThankFgiving day. lirkion'i Theatre.?Last evening, the entertainments at this ehgant place of amusement were set Bp. rt for the benefit of that clever actress, Mrs. Brougham, and a well filled house was the result. The ptifirmances commenced with the amusing piece calkd 'Cuttle's Capture," in which Mr. Burton, as usual, brought down enthutiastic applause, in his inimitable conception cf the old sailor. Mrs. Brougham asbutan Nipper, was greatly applauded, and Mrs. Vernon, at- *Vrs. McStinger, was excellent. Mr. Raymond, as Tcots. was received as on former night:), with considerable approbation. The next piece was a , (ketch, called "t ounterfelt Presentments." which ! i aseed cft exceedingly well. After which, was played . l )) Tim It.h. \t.

We published y je? terday. a somewhat romantic account of the advens tures of one Medora Web.?ter, as ahe is called, and appended a very affectionate letter from a Mississippi cotton planter, In wbich he offered his heart, band and cotton to the adorable Medora. in case she would accept hie offer of marriage. In the aame artiole it was s stated that Medera has not been seen or heard of sinoe o a day or two subsequent to the trial of Mrs. Mead, for i. ner adduction. as we nave accidentally learned son* I, additional facts in relation to the singular prosecutions with which Medora la connected, we giva them , below, as an illustration of ' life " In a phase not geq nerally visible to the pubiie.

Massachusetts, and was engaged In various cotton fivc. tories. She came to Boston from Lowell, and went to '? Lowell from Springfield. Shortly after h?r arrival hara, 1 the prosecution against Mr* Mead was commenced, and at the same time another indictment, charging Mr. Kills, a constable, and Mrs Mead, with attempting to hire her to leave the city and not testify in the first r, cafe. was found. The story she told, aad on which y the grand jury founded their action, wm a rehearsal of i? such wrongs, and HUch a detail of virtue struggling iy with vice, that the grand jurors, in their indignation t, hit their lips, pulled out their handkerchiefs, wiped .D away a struggling tear or two. and voted the Mils ? ig When the first indictment was tried, the aiime affecting ?, story aa told the grand jury, was toli upon the stand; In the court room was as still aa If Mr. Cboate had been d, addressing the jury on a murder case, and some of the le b'hoys behind the bar clenched their fists, shwok their ?- bumhes of lives at Mrs. Mr-ad. and would probably >g hare vented their wrath upon her orally, if in no Q, other manner, had they not feared arrust for oonk tempt. Of course it was necessary to break down her 1. testimony in order to clear the defendant, and sundry I- w itnwses testified that sha wa< a notorious liar,; that ?e she had been turm d away from hei boarding bou?e at n SprirgfMdin consequence of bad conduct; that she * a was a prostitute, a thief, f. c Those who had screwed of their lmigioaticn up to the highest point, now put on their l.ats, gave Medora a look of oontempt, and left, [j the interest of the scene having passed. Interest in the afiair would have cMti d here, hut that the jndiot,y meet against Mr. F.liia hr.d not yet been tried, and it a was mcerk'iry to prepare the evidenoe, jiro andeo'i.ln this case Mr Jonathan Whipple, oonstable *ote<l X on the part cf Medora. and Mr. Klifl looked a^ter hli If own defence.
