AB sections of the State were represented, and all in terests, to greet the popular champion of American prin ciples The inauguration ceremony la this State diffess from that in New York, in being much more formal and imposing. The -rotes cast at the election for Governor, are transmitted, aftw the organisation o' the Legisla ture, from the office of the Secretory of State, under seal, to the Speaker of the 'House of Representatives, and mm a day fixed by law are epened, announced, county by eeunty, and summed up in the preeence of the members ?f tbe two bousea convened in the hall of the House of Representatives. Each house is represented by a teller, Who foots np the columns; and on their agreeing, tbe result is announced by the Speaker of the Senate, who presides over the Convention, and tbe enndidat* receiving tbe largest number of votes is declared the Governor of the Commonwealth from the third Tuesday of January, instant. Two certificates ef election are thsn made, one of which is sent to the Covtrnor elect, and the other lodged in the office of tbe Secretary cf tbe Commonwealth. On the day of tbe inauguration, tbe military formed in procession, escorted the Governor elect, the retiring Governor, tbe members of the new and old Cabinets, the ex-Governors of the State who were in attendance, and tbe invited guests. The procession marched through a aumlxr of the streets of the town to the Capitol, in front of which a platform hai been erected, facing the ?iver. On this platform were ranged the members of the Legislature und all other privileged persons. The cere monies were opened by a prayer from ltev. A. Cookmun, ?f this place; alter which the certificate of James Pol lock's election was read, the oath of office administered by the Speaker of tbe Senate, and the inaugural ad<lress delivered. This closed the exersises, and the procession re-f'ira.<d, cscorted the ex Governor and Governor to tbeir lu'. tings, and then dispersed, The display was a rar.ar k tw>)y ti. ? ore, the weather was charming, and no necuiet t o curre i to mar the pleasure of the day. Ihir imy the eve lh it and succeeding day, the iuium of visit er' left, ami the Ion n resumed its usual quiet. 'he inaugural has been favorably received by the Go vernor o friends, and not bitterly reviewei by those who mi;, h? be suppc sod inclined to judge him harshly. The Governor starts well, and promises to huve an honorable nod successful administration. He is a man of fine ta lenta, of high moral tone and great firmness ol' character. He is not as familiar as many with -t.ite politicians, as be has never been a member of the legislature, or in any way connected with tbe Stnte government, except a< pn sidant Juope, for about two years, of thojudioial district in which he resided prior to his election, to which he was appointed by Governor Johnston to fill the vacancy earned by tne death of J udije Anthony. He was a member of Congress for six years, ajil there form ed an acquaintance with national politic and politi cians which prom.res to be of essential bene '.it to him in future. He is a church member, is connected with the rigid denomination of seced?r?, and decline 1 to attend either of the Inauguration Balls given on the evening of Tuesday last. On being waited upon by a committee, who expected to escort him to the ball, lie replied that be never attended balls, and must be cxcuaed. He wai further Dressed, as urrangements had been made for his reception ' but he said lhese arrangements had been made without his knowledge or sanction, and that he eould not recognise their binding nature upon him. l'he incident is an unusual one. since it rarely bappeos that rigidly moral men are elected to office, or, wi>*n sleeted, are not betrayed into an abandonment of their prin ciples. Chiefly from want or famliarity with the politicians of ttir state, the Governor Imh not progressed far in his appointment*, as be very justly a-k.s time fur investiga Tun lie U?k, however, appointed Ins (Secretary of the Commonwealth ami Deputy Secretary, both of which teV'cliouH were unotlicUtly announced some weeks Hince Tbe former office ih tilled by Ao<liew G.Curtin, of Centre eounty, and toe latter by John M Sullivan, Em., of Bat ler county. Mr. Curtiu *?? chairman of the Whig State Committee during the last eauvaxx, and managed tile eeinpautn with great .-mill. lie is a lawyer of con-i lora We ability and great personal strength in his section ? has alwsy* resided In a strong democratic county ?

He Is an old friend and sciiool mate of Go*. Pollock, between wlorn there lias always exutod the most confidential friendship. On all a '-count* thu up pointm* nt is a good one, whether we consider Mr. Cur tin's abilities, ctiarac'er or position.

Kitner's administration ; and another, Charles C. Sullivan uu ac tive member of the State Senate for several years Mr. Sullivan'* hab.ts, qualiti cation* and disposition pecu liarly tit him for the place in which he will be iouml ae ewrate, prompt and honest. Koth these appoin-nvnts are much more fitting and judicious than that of the Attorney General, which has created general dissatis faction. The patronage ol the Governor has been gre.it ty reduced and he lias but few ollices at his disposal, which are worth a scramble. The best are the flour and whiskey inspectorships at Philadelphia and Pittsburg, tbe leather inspectors for the sa mi' points, port physician o' Philadelphia, sealers ?f weights and measure* in some of the counties, and a few clerkships in the Executive and school departments. There are a large number of applicants for these, as sa 'ght be expected from the tightness of the tint's, but the Governor takes things very coolly, a*d will not issue h>s commissions until he is fully convinced that his ap pointees are the best men be can select. Tnesday, the 13th ol February, is the day fixed by the Rpeaker ot the Senate, in h s writ, 'or an election In Philadelphia to fill the vacancy caused by tne death of Levi Foulkrod, Esq. Mr. F. had served but one sessioo, hot bad won the respect aod confidence of his associates. Be was a democrat in politics, but liberal in his general views. Bis death, which occurred during the recess, j ?nay prove a sudden blow to democratic ascendency in tbe branch of tbe Legislature with which he was eon Meted. In tbe fall of 1*53, the democrats succeeded, ?ery unexpectedly, in electing their candidates in the Allegheny and Rlair districts, and had, in consequence of thee* game, a majority cf five or six last winter, with a reasonable prospect of retaining this majority: but at the last election they were unfortunate enough to lose tbe Wasliingt OB and Sreene, and the Payette and West moreland districts, which were geneially considered their most reliable? an American whig having been re turned from the former and an American democrat t'roin the latter. But they gained the Senator in Philadelphia county, aod were saved Irom overthrow. Mr. PoiiIk Md'e death renders another election necessary in the aaane county, and the probabilities are that an American will be chosen, which will place tbe friends of the State administration in a majority of one. Public opinion has not yet centered up in tither of the candidates, but the prevalent impression is that, with a judicious choice, the Americans can hardly fail to redeem this forro?r stronghold of democracy. The election for Senator is on the same day as that fixed by law for the election of a United States senator by the Legislature; but the elr ewmetance is of the less moment as the Americans have ? Majority of about forty on joint ballot , and t tie new fcfenator's vote, no mattei what his politics, could have ao decisive efleet upon the result. The canvass for United States senator goes on, developing occasionally a new cindidate. In proportion as the number increases tlie confidence increases, defeating an intelligent judg ment of the chan-es and prospects. The latest can Mate annoancod is I>r. David Jayno, of Philadelphia, famed for hie hair tonic, patent medicines, b g houses ?Ml bnge fortune aod business tact. I do not know who are his friends, but I am told he considers himself hi the field. The other American candidates are these: ? Kotxrt T. Conrad, present Mayor of Philadel phia; Thaddeus Stevens, a leading lawyer of Lancaster; Daniel M. t-myser, present Judge of the Bucks an 1 Montgomery Jodicial district; James Cooper, the present Fen i tor; Simon Cameron, an ex Senator and President of the Ruequebanna and tbeI/>hanon Valley KaOroad coin ponies; 0. H. Tiffany, Professor of Mathematios in Dickinson College at Carlisle, a Biltimorean by bit th; Andrew G. Curtin. Secretary of the Cimmoo wealth, William P. Johnston, ei Governor and Presi dent of the Allegheny Valley Kailroad Company; 0?n. . . K. Moorehead, a prominent citisen of Pittshurg, and aniee Veech, a well known lawyer in Western P?nn?yl anta. This list does not include all whose nam's bave een mentioned by themselves, in their own pipers, or y others, but it does include all who are kmwn as andidates, and are considered as having any prospsiil f ?access. On the democratic side of tbe House, Jo 'an L Dawson, of Payette, and Wilson McCtn lless. o> Pitts, burg, are about tae only names mentioned, there being tittle strife this year for tbe democratic caucus nomina tion.

We regard him .as an intelligent and very agreeable gentleman, who would win admiration anywhere. One of the officers, the other day, speaking of the Fal mouth, answered a question thus ? "We are very happy, sir, on board." I am told this evening that the Governor of St. Thomas entertain* Capt.

Jan. 24.] One of the most audacious attempts to extort money by threats of personal violence that has occurred in this region for many years, took pla -e on Monday afternoon last, at the residence of Enoch Train, Esq., in Barrimn square, Dorcbus er. The circumsUnces are related as follows: ? It appears that, sev ral months since, a young man named Julius Warren Lewis made tho acquaintance of Mr. Train, who became interes'ed in his behalf, and be lieving him to be an upright ami deserving gentleman, loaned him with which be went to New York and engaged in business. Not succeeding there, Levis re ? turned to this city, snd applied to Mr. Train for further aid, and at length went to work in a book and newspaper store. He bad not been here long br lore he sent letters to Mr. Train, threatening to accuse him of a crime, (whirh he named) unless he furnished him with more money ; and in one cf these letters, Lewis state 1 that he would meet Mr Train when tie te.ixt expected him. Yesterday afternoon, while at his residence in Dor chester, a double letter or note was Uandmi to Mr. Tram by one of his servants, who stated that it was given to him by a young man at the door. Upon opening tbe package, Mr. Train fcund that one letter wan uated '?New York," ami was evidently in Lewis's handwriting, stating that he had become desperate, and must have more money. The note accomp invin? this letter was from I.ewis, and stated that he ?? would like to see Mr. Train for tbe last time." Ibo servant was oirotted to show the bearer of the letter into tbe library. wbu:h room be entered, and soon after Mr. Train came in, wbon I.ewis accosted him sub stantially in the following language : ? '? Mr Train, when 1 formerly knew you, 1 was an innocent man, and now liave become desperate; I must have money, anl will have it; I am armed witba bowie knife and revolver, and must have money !" Mr. Train 1< uked at I?wi* for a moment or two with surprise, and,' being near the door, stepped ont of tbe room, av.d directed a servant to immediately call his coachman and gardener. In tbe meantime Mis. Train had entered tbe library, and recognising Lewis, who had been at the house under other circumstances, made some friendly rem irk to him 1 ewis replied by saving that be feared be had offended Mr. Train, and wou) I step out and see him. He had reached the hall, when be was m?t by Mr. Train ami his servants, the latter of whom, by direction of Mr. Train, attempted to arrest Lewis, who made a most determine! resistance, during which the servant* took a dirk from within his ve-t. In answer to the inquiry for his pistol, Lewis said that was outside in his carriage. During the s-uflie, I,ewi* nearly effected his escape through the door, but te was at length overpowered and firmly bound with a bed cord Mr 1'hipps, son-in-law of Mr. Train, heard the scuffle in tbe ball, and assisted the servants in securing Lewis, who was given in custody of an officer ami taken b fore Justice SalTord, by whom be was committal to jail in de fault of hail in $2,600 for his appearance for examination on Friday next.

Extract of a letter dated city of Mcxico, January 1st, from a distinguished source. In consequence of the defeat suffered by tbe revolu tionists in Morclia, of which I informed yon in my last letter, they have been reduced to small detachment which spread in the department ef Micboacan, only engaged in robbing the passengers, and sometimes the small villages or (arms, bat flying away as soon as tbey know they are pursued. Thus the rebellion can be con sidered at an end. The small detachments diminish from day to day, because they are frequently made prisoners by the troops of the govern nent, or because they deliver them selves np, aekisg the pardon of the capital punishm-nt, which Ilia Serene Highness grants, so a? to establish the public tranquility. Learning that Alvarei *ai at his farm, called Hacien da de la Urea, with a detachment of oue hundred men, tbe only remains of the force that he originally com nianded, the government ordered that a detachment, under the command of Geieral Don Sevare del l*a?ttl1o, should march to attack him. but Alvarez, who became aware of the movement, fled as titual. The detachment commanded by l\a?tiIlo, nevertheless took possession of said farm, and reduced it to a?h a thin punishing as much as possible the crime of the owner. In the balance of the Republic reigns tbe mo?t com plete tranquility, On the 1st of last December toik place the universal vote of the country for tbe crntin nation of Hi* Serene Hifrhne?? as President, and, far as known, the vote has been unanimous In his favor. Oo the 1st of next Feb ruary the result of this vote of the people will he cor rertly ascertained an 1 published, as was ordered ia the de. ree which was called for the takin* of said vote. This solemn confirmation of the wishes of the nation for tbe continuance of the present duties of General Hi* Serene Highness the President will give to his posi tion an immense moral strength, that will introduce a fail and tranquil adjustment of ail political differences.

Woiideifui K scape of PoMenger*> flron the Boston Traveller, Jan. &i.J A most remarkable accident occurred to the passenger tram which left New York for thi* city at 4 H. M yes terday, with nearly two hundred passengers, of which we have tbe following parti inlar*: As the traiu was passing tbe swtch st Clappville, nine miles above Worc? ster, the (witch suddenly broke. The engine passed safely, and tbe tender went upon the side track. Tbe baggtge cur ran olT tbe trunk, and along the edge of the embankment; tbe first passenger car was thrown lengthwuy* across the track; the seconl pas>erger oar w?s tbrown down the embankment some tbiity feet, standing i early perpendicular, the upper end breaking into the forward part of the neit car, which, with the last car, ran along the edge of the em bankment, but fortunately did Dot go down. The car tbrown down the embankment struck, in it* descent, a tr<e, stripping ofT tbe bark. Ttu* in some degree broke the forco ol the fall. All ia this car, an 1 indeed throughout the train, were in a state of great excitement and ccn'uaion. The falliug car was filled with ladies and gentlemeo, who were euddonly thrown in a heap together. The *tove aUo fell down to the lower end of the car, but fortuna'ely injured no one. its soon at poMble attempt* were mode to re*;ue those in the fallen car.

One man bad hi* boot torn from hi* foot, and otbvi* were slightly brui-ied. The fore part of tbe lh:rd car wan broken in by the upper end of tbe car down tbe embankment, but for tunately there were no passengers on the two front seats. Ti e passengers in this car. ami thoie tn the one behind, had a moment of awful suspense a* tliey ran along the edge of the embankment, expecting to plunge into the depths below.

Another diabolical Attempt to ?ratter ueath and destruction among a family occurred on Monday night, between eight ami nine o'clock, at the residence ol Mr. Cyrus Swishtlm, on Walnut street, between Ccurt and Ninth streets, through meana of a destructive and damnable contrivance more bold and daring thao that of the celebrated Arnson machine. The particular! are these ? On the evening in question, Mr. Kwittbelm and family, consisting of live persons, were seated around the fire, when a hug* ball descomled the chimney and, bouncing into the fire, rolled in a bright blaze into the middle of the floor. K was ma<le of cotton saturated with turpentine, and, daring its brief contact with the fire, had become ignited.

Cincinnati tiairiit, Jan 24. EXTENSIVB FORQKRY IN V IROJN1A.? The burg (Va.) KxyrfM states that the city has been start led t>y the discovery of an extensive torgery . The party implicated ia Mr. John W. Rice, formerlv of Brunswick, a man who has heretofore enjoyed the high confidence of tbe community. The Hjcpreu say* "Mr. J. W. Rice was, up to about a year tgo, in partnership with his brother to the dry goods business in this city, and, after selling nut. he formed a partnership with Dr. A Whitehead, in the pressed brick factory in Roslin. The firm was known as that of Whitehead k Rice. In order to raise money for purposes of a private nature, (known best to himself, as ws cannot credit the strange rnmors afloat.) it is alleged he drew on notes bearing forged en dorsements over $20,000 from the banks of this city, as well as other sums from parties round the country and in New York city, making up a total of abcut $50,000, possibly snore. The pap?r whiih he deposit*d in tin different localities was signed by him, John W. Rice At Brother, and endorsed by said J W. Ki.-e with the names of J. Kavens.-roft Jones, Wm. I'. It u ford, Whitehead k Rice, and others. This constituted the forgery, as tbe above gentlemen had no idea of the way their names as endorsements had passed round." The manner in which the frauds have come to light is as follows " Home of the note* bee*sn< mature, and were not met by J W Rice, aa he had prnvio isly done, i. e by paying '.he stipulated cnrtsilinest and renewing the paper ; so tbe notes were pro*e?t?d an 1 the endorsers notified thereof to their peculiar asVui-Ument. The forgery nnw became eviJent, and J. W. U'ce, seeing that he could not save the plot frnm bursting to his ruin, bade adieu to Peters burg early last week. The drv goo<!s firm of Oreenway Brother*, ( Virginlsns,) in New York, let him have $16,000, and would have granted him mors on the secu rities be held ferth to thsra." A Skrioc" Oitrios IN Cincinnati.? Mork Kinwsrri.so ? A few days since a young man. named John Atkinson, a resident of Newport. Kentucky, was arrested by constable Adams upon a charge of haviag fraudulently obtained several lar*e invoices of goods from merchants in I'biladelpb a. His examination took place cn Monday evening, but the evidence not being of a nature to warrant his being held to hail, be was dis charged. On tbe same night, while sitting in his house In Newport, a shert time previoas to the hour of re tiring, a knock was heard at the hour. when, npon own ing it. a large bulky man was discovered, who, stating that he felt very sick, inquired if Mr. A had any wine or spirits in the house The latter repl ed in tbe affir mative, and invited him inside, when, a* Mr. A. was in the act of opening a closet, the stranger felled him to the ground. Before tbe wife ceuld interfere, another man, who bad been waiting outalde. entered, and having by threat* timidated the woman, they gagged and bound her has. band, and th?n carried Mm t? the ferry boat ia a car riage, accounting to those on boaid for their protsediog that he waa charged with some heavy misdemeanor They afterwards bore their victim to tbe Utile Mia *1 railroad engine house in Fulton, where tbey kept him until the rooming train for Philadelphia. The wife of Mr. Atkinson states that when they carried him away, tbey told her that she could see him the aext morning at the wat^h house. This high banded outrage dea*Tves the severest puniahmsat, and, as the parties are sup posed to be kaown who perpetrated it, they will doubt less, meet with their deserts ?

Execution at Galena, 111. On Friday, January 10, John 1. Taylor was hung at the County Hospital, near Galena, for the murder of his wife. At one P. 11., in charge of au armed posse, be was conducted to the place of execution, followed by a large crowd of all classes and ages, maintaining a sad compo sure during the funeral march, lie was au old man of sixty years of a at. John Ira Taylor waa led out of hit e?ll in the county jail about 12 o'clock, and in the custody of the sheriff, surrounded by other officers of executive justice, by a band of citizen soldiery, and by a dense nriss of unarmed citizens; the carriage which contained him was driven to the place selected for his execution, about two miles without the limits of the city. He was dressed in a white shroud, with a white cap upon his head. HU countenance was vacant and gtastlj ; his eyes were set and staring, and a dark rtag seemed to encircle them. Once or twice he seemod to smile, but it was a mere animal contraction of the muscles of the face; spirit did not smile. He had evidently suffered intensely within, hut the outward ibid strove hard to cover up all external traces of its writhings. As he passed along Main street, guarded as above, the wretched man wus the personifica tion of the weakness of guilt, surrounded by the strength, dignity and majesty of justice. Upon reaching the ground, ten thousand persons there stood in one solid mass. Taylor ascended the scaffold perfectly self-possessed and with a firm and steady tread. Clad in a white gown and cap, he addressed with a firm voice the crowd for more than thirty minutes. He reite rated his innocence of the crime of wilful murder ? de clared that he knew not bow bis wife was killed? ex pressed the hoje that as Christ was crucified for all, he was crucified for him, and the belief that he wax forgiven by his God. After the cap was drawn ov?r his eyes, and he hue w not what insiant he would be ushered into eternity, he again for ten minutes addressed the crowd in a firm and distinct voice, and admonished them to beware Of intox ication. the cause of bis misfortune and the cirse of his life. Weighing some 180 lbs., and having been given a fall of six feet, upon the removal of the trap door, he died almost with >ut a struggle ? hia neck seeming to have been stretched near four inches. Thus died John I Taylor, who had '-rendered the State some service" in the !*eniinole war ? performed in this city last summer, during the cholera season, offices of kindness aud Im munity from which others shrank from as dangerous, but who unfortunately wis addicted to drunkenness, and slew hia wife in a fit of inebriation. The First Locomotive In the United St* tea. We take the following letter from the Cleveland UtroXd:? Frkjght Omen, C. h P. R. R., ) Cijcvkla.nd, Jan. 20, 1855. J There is a locmnotivc at the freight depot of the Cleve land and Pittsburg Railroad, in this city, which I demn sufficiently antique and curious to entitle it to honoia ble mention in the papers, and I ain coolident that were your own eyes to behold the venerable old machine, it would ruceive from you what it richly deserves? a "first rate notice." But, ns you have uot seen it, anil perhaps will not do so, permit me to give you a few it?ms in re lation thereto, which, if you deem it of sulUcie'. t im portance or interest, please lay before your readers. The locomotive was recently purchased of tie N. Y. & E. R. R. Co., by Messrs. Atkinson &Stidger, of Carrollton, 0., for five hundred sud fifty dollars, and is to ba used on what is called the ' Carroll Branvh K. K.." which ex tends from Carroll to u to Oneida, a distance of ten and a half mile s. Mr Atkinson, who has the machine in charge, informs me that it was originally purchased in Liverpool, Eng land. for six thousand dollars, by Messrs. Hungers, Kttchum h firosvenor, celebrated locomotive manufac turers of faterson, N. J , and used by them as a pattern. As my knowledge of machinery is not sufficient to en able me to give anything like un accurate description of this iocomotive, 1 will not attempt it. I will simply My, however, that the engine and tender have ten wheels, "drivers" included ? which, in form and appearance re semble locomotive wheels of the present day scarce more than they do the "quill wheels" used by our great grandmothers. A well written document ia posted upon the engineer's cab of the eugine, which purports to betho ''biography" of the "McNeill," of which toe follow ng is a copy: ? "1 he I'loacer Locomotive of the United Slates." HKKK ."IIK 1H I " THE M?;NEILL!" The McNeill was imported to this country from Liver pool, England, as a "sample engine," and was re garded aa tLe nepiut ultra o! the age, both in style and strength. After being use l as a pattern for the first loeouio' ires built in tne United states, sbe commenced rur<n<ng on the I'aterson and Hudson River Railroad be tween Jersey City and i'aterxon.in the year 1028. For some time Iiunliecs aud thousands came a great distauce to lee her, by whom she waa regarded as the greatest won der of the times. For years past she bas been a wonder, too, "not because of beauty or strength, but because she * as the pioneer of locomotives. Al hough entitled to a discbarge from Isber, she Is still to be employed on a new road in Ohm. As ah* commenced running on the shores of the Atlantic, it is hoped she will not retire until she has reached the shores of the Pacific. Her history and our progress are Intimately connected. Woe to the man who dares speak of her in derision " I do not vouch for the authenticity or correctness of the above in every particular. In fact, I am quite sure the statement in mgaid to aate is erroneous; still, it may be correct? I confess 1 do not know. I onee had the satisfaction of examining Dr. Franklin's rrinting press, in the National Museum, I'atent Office buih'ing, Washington. It interested me exceedingly, not only because it had been used by Dr. Franklin, (which of itself waa sufficient to render it an obje?t of interest,) but becaoae it enabled me more fully to ap preciate the wonderful improvements made in a single century in the manfaeture of printing presses. 1 think a comparison of the "McNeil" with the loco motives turned out at many points in this country, equally wonderful, and even more so, inasmuch as the time required to bring locomotives to their present de gree of perfection ha* been comparatively short The " McNeil" will remain several days at the machine shop of the C. k P. Railroad, for the purpose of undergoing some repairs, previous to entering upon her duties on the ??Carroll Branch " WM. W. CUANDuEK. Confession OK a Slave Murderer.? It wi 1 be remembered tbat noma days since Mr G. W. Acker mys teriously disappeared, an.i under circumstances which attached strong suspicion to Turn, a slave belonging to Mr. H M. Bender, ami it appear* from the subjoined con fession of tbc murderer that it wan not misdirected. The boy pointed out the place where he had concealed the body of hi* victim? in the run of a xmall branch near Seymour'* lllnff, in thin county ? and where it waa found, with the brain* dashed out and otoer injuries. The confession wa* voluntarily made before a ooroner'* Jury of (We person*, whose nanv * are appended to it. Tom xay*; ? "When he (Mr Acker) fir?t come to me, he says, ' Tom, I >ion t think you cutwoxi enough; you don't put it up right, making too many hole*, and if you don't cut two cord* I will make you cut t?0 and a half;' and when Mr Acker started off, I says to him, ' Mr Acker.it seem* that 1 can't please you nohow.' He then Jumped down from his horse and made at me With his aword oane drawn, ami then I run, thinking he wa* going to nick it through me. Ho said if I talked that way to him he would stick it through me. I then struck at him with the axe, aud hit him ever the eye, a d then he run and I ran after bim. and he hallow,), ? Oh l/>rd!' And when I caught him I dripped the axe and threw Mr. Acker town, and Mr. Acker took up the axe and struck roe with the axe on the breast Mr. Acker was In a hitting position at the time he hit me. I then took the axe from him as he wa* sitting, nnd when I had the ax? drawn, Mr. Acker said to me, if I would not kill him tbat he would not trouble me any more, and if I did kill him bis wife and children woald sutler. An I as he tried to get up, I atruck him hack of the head with a very heavy lie* with the edge of the axe. This Is the blow tbat knocked out hi* brain*, and he did not speak or more afterwards. I then looked oat a place to bury him? where he wa* found in the run of the branch. No othsr Crson saw me. and I did not tell a living soul of it until ?t night, wh<-n we were ail looking Tor him, when I told Mr Ladd that I would show him vhere the body was. I never bad any notion to kill any one but one of our drivers tbat we had, named D*mce, because he wanted to whip me wrongfully."? Mobile Advertiser, Jan. 19. First Conviction for Dcklmng in New Or uukr ? Aneventof a very novel and interesting char acter occurred yesterday in our Criminal Court. It was the convict on of a man for manslaughter for fighting a duel. This is the first conviction of the kind ever achieved in this State. The public sentiment has for a long time justified and sustained the duello, a* a mode of de ciding personal quarrels. Several attempts have been made t>> bold par-ie* liable for participating either as principals or second* in duels, but hitherto tbey have invariably Tailed. Some of these case* presented n ine of the modifying circumstance* of the lair and legiti mate duel, a< recognised by the customary chivalry. We remember one case in which the accused waa defended by Mr. Soule. when it wa* proved that tha duel waa characterized by circumstance* of great brutality, the accused deliberately walking up to his unarmed antago mst ai.il firincr intc his bosom. Yet he wa* acquitted. Nov, the duel participated in by the party convicted yesterday was mark* . by an unusual degree of chivalry and fair play. It waa fought with knives; the partie* were equal in physical power, and when one objected to tbe knife of the other, the latter offered, and actually did exchange knive*. and with tbe weapon of his antag onist slew him. Tlie surviving party was indicted for manslaughter, and after a vigorous defence, wai con victed by a jury in which there were several Creole*. This conviction marks a new era in the sentiment* and hahite of our people. Henceforth, In addition to the civil disqualification*, persons who undertake to settle their quarrel* by a resort to tbe daello. will be exposed to prosecution aid cenvlction in onr courts, for an of. f. nee which ?iit-je<-t* the party to an infamoua punish ment.?

Political Intelligence. DECID1DLY ANTI-INOW NOTHING. The convention in the twenty- ninth Srnatsrial dis trict of thi* State which Dominated Chester Loomis for the vacancy, passed the following anti-Know Nothing revolutions:? Resolved, That any endeavor to cheek or retard the increase of population in three State*, ty repealing, changing, or obstructing the lawe for the naturalization of foreigners, or by pasting laws to pro (libit or discourage their migration hither, would be anti-democratic, and no lees reprehensible on the part of any administration, State or national, tlian were similar measures when adopted and attempted to be enforced by George tae Third previous to the American Revolution. Resolved, That *11 secret political organizations, bound together by pledges and oatbs, are contrary to the spirit of our free institutions, treasonable in appearance, if not in design, and should receive, a* they deserve, the just animadversion of all good citizens. Reiwlved, That as citizens of this great and glorious republic, we cherish an unfeigned and ardent attach ment for the noble, magnanimous and truly republican sentiments of tbe great apostle of American liberty: 'That all men should be free to profess, and by argu ment to maintain, their opinion in matters of religion, and that the same should in nowise diminish or atfeci their civil capacities." Resolved, That in the Hon. Chester Loomis we recog nise a tried, honest, capable and faithful public ser vent, sad a firm, consistent and unwavering friend of ? qual rights irrespective of the accident of birth, the loesession of wealth, or the profession of faith; and we not only cheerfully, but with great pleasure, tender him our cordial and hearty support. KNOW NOTHING1BM IN TBI NOHTH CAROLINA LEGIS LATURE. In the Ncrth Carolina House of Representatives on the 18th inst. a resolution was introduced by Mr. Badbaro, enunciatory of the Know Nothings, when the following short debate ensued: ? Mr. Steele asked for a statement, in order that be might see how he was voting. Mr. m.vgicltahv said there oan be no donbt but that there does exist in our midst a secret political order. There is abundance of testimony that such is the fact. A certain distinguished gentleman from this State, (Ken neth Rayner,) has been holding a correspondence on the subject with a gentleman across the border of a slater State. He (Mr. f.) thought the existence of such an older a very serious matter, and was in favor of the refutation. A. H Ca ldwkll agreed that it wa< a serious matter, and moved to make it a special order for Monday nest, at 12 o'clock. Mr Stvbdh said he thought it was a serious matter, and recommended that the gentlemen from 1'itt aud Cbnwan, (Messrs. Singeltary and Had ham,) join the or der, and afterwards communicate what they bad *e-n and heard, that the House might be enabled to come to some conclusion Mr. Badham said he thought the gentlemen who had called on him for light and information, (Messrs. Steele and Stubb*,) were much better able to give that 'nfor mntion than he (Mr. B.) If it be th? fact that this so ciety exists, as many know, and as many in this House know, it was the duty of this House to denounce it, and expose it to the people. Mr. OiTLAW said that we haveeome here for other pur poses than to discuss the merits of the Know Nothings. We are here assembled on the business of our constitu ents, and this resolution should not be entertained. On a motion to lay on the table, the ayes and nays were demanded. Ayes 69, nays 48.

It is said that Hon Charles Durkee, late member of CongTMS, is likely to be elected United State* Senator by the Legislature of Wisconsin. He is free soil democratic. Mi bpf.b at East Boston? Three Persons Ah r?tkd ? A bumicide, committed under somewhat mys terious circumstances, occurred in ?ut lloston, about 4 o'clock ye*terday atternoon. The facte, aa nearly as can at present be ascertained, are aa follow* ? About eleven 0 --look yes'erday forenocn. one Michael Cullann went with hie wife to sea a Mrs. Mary Carney, roaident in the rear of Webster street, for the purpose of setting sn um brella, which he bad loaned ner. The Carney woman refined to give it up, and ilew into a violent passion, whereupon the parties separated. About two o'clock in the afternoon Cullane returned, in company with a Ger man named Lavid Cruise, and went into the tenement of John Lynch, adjoining that of Mrs. Oamer. About 4 o'clock, Cullane was *>en coming out of the house, with blood running front his bead: he staggered once or twica on the platform of the stepa, and then pitched head first over tbe railing, fallinga distance of about Are feet upon the frozen ground He was immediately pi:ked up anl conveyed to his home in an alley between Havre and Liverpool streets, where he died in about half an hour, having never spoken after the fall. Dr. J. L. Hinckley eismined the wounds and found the head broken io just above tbe noee and the lelt eye, apparently by a blow with ths poll of a hatchet, and ragged wound* upon the face, evidently made by the fall friira the bouse steps. 1 he officers instantly took into custody all the persons found in the house visited by ihe deceased, who were Iiavid Cruise, John I.yoch and Mary Carney, and they were held for examination. lilood was found on the floor in Lynch 'a apartment, and in tbe sink in Mra. Carney '? apartment, and also upon a dress which she wore early in the afternoon. Soon after Cullane was picked up she changed her dress at a neighbor's, where she dropped a wallet with 114, identified by the wife of the deceased as belonging to him. A hatchet, with some blood spots upon it, wai found in Mrs Carney '? room, and belonged to her husband. The supposition is that the Carney womu whs the principal actor in the murder, as the Oerman (Cruise) was found in a helplessly intoxicated condition, and Lynch was apparently absent at tM time after rum, as he came in with a small pailful of it after the officer* arrived. It is said the Carney woman had been in the habit of selling liquor, anil the deceased hail been used aa a (overt ment witness in some of the Kast Boston liouor rase* in the Municipal Court. ?
