The Peoria III.) Republican of the 1st
inst. makes a most appropriate and time
ly quotation from what it styles " Dr.
Franklin's Fugitive Slave Law." On the
1st of March, 1779, the Legislature of
Pennsylvania passed an act, which was
drawn up by Dr. Franklin, to provide for
the gradual abolition of slavery within
the Commonwealth, the eleventh section
of which reads as follows ;
That this or any thing in it contained
shall not give any relief or shelter to any
absconding or runaway hegro or mulatto
slave or servant who has absconded him
self from his or her owner, master, or mis
tress, residing in any other State or coun
try, but such owner, master or mistress
shall haVfc like right and aid to demand,
claim, and take away his slave or servant
as he might have had in case this act had
not been made.'
j Upon this the Peoria Republican makes
the following sensible commentary :
' Now,; when it is remembered that the
present Constitution of the United States
was ndtjhen in existence, that the old ar
ticles of Confederation were silent On that
siihieet. and consequently that Pennsylva-
! nia was not bound to j return fugitive
slaves, it will be seen that the spirit which
prompted thej enactment of this provision
j was entirely adverse to that with which
I the subject has been handled in our day.
Dr. Franklin justly thought that the Un
ion of these States was the foundation of
their prosperity and that, although Penn
sylvania might free her own slaves, she
could not make her territory an asylum
were crowded by hundreds' in nuriuii ..f i.la-
ure and pure air. Husbands went to see iheir
wives, fathers their daughters, and lover their
sweethearts ; and several unfortunate bipeds,
who bad neither wives, daughters nor sweet,
hearts, went with the forlorn hope of attaining
the first 'mint in thai happy series of causes and
consequence which ought, at least once in a
lifetime, to bless every son of Adam, with the
possession of all three. We have only to do.

well known citizen of New Orleans a man
of poetic imagination and ardent temperament,
who, on this occasion was about to pay a week

at Biloxi. A lady on board had received from
that polite attention which every gentleman i
hound to pay lo one of the sex when unprolect
ed, or. in other words, when her mother doesn't
know she's out. They sat toother upon the
guards,' and each spoke of the beauties of na
ture ; but we regret to say that the gentleman
did not allude, in the most distant manner, to
the fact of his having a wife. How this fresh
breeze cools the fevered pulse and invigorates
the Irame,' remarked the gentleman, and what
visions of beauty lie above and around, as the
boat dashes through the water this bright moon
light night, chasing the cares of business away,
and bringing sweet and pleasing reflections.
See that glow which still lingers in the wes
tern horizon, where sky and water seem to
meet ; does it not portray to the mind the glori
ous hopes of youth, which point to the dim dis
tance of the future and create an imaginary
connection between earth and heaven?" See
the trark of our progress, as it rests in foam up.
on ihe surface of ihe lake ; and as the agitated
waters still parkle, i; appears as if the galaxy
was transferred lo their cool depths. At early
morning, when the white heath before us friii
ges the lake, and the sun shining through the
tree U.ps, casts their shadows apon the calm
waters, fancy deems it Nature's mirror, framed
in silver and with her perfumes hanging round
it. And when at evening, if you sin." 1 seek
the shadows of the forest, when a swee't little
Jenny Lind is singing on every bow, you will
feel that their joyous-notes come with fresher
gladness to the hearlthan the voluptuous swell
of operatic music'
Our hero stopped here for the want of breath;
and a sweet smile from ihe lady thanked him
for his efforts to please. At this moment, a fel
low of rather unprepossessing appearance, step
ped up to the lady and desired her to prepare
to land, that they were nearing the shore.
She replied not ; but cast a look of silent suf
fering upon our poetic gentleman, who was
thrown into a perfect fit of surprise and com
miseration. The boat reached the landing at
Pass Christian, the lady and her seemingly
rough companion went on shore, and our hero,
who had been watching her final exit, turned
away with a sigh, and determined as the boat
left the wharf, to drown his sentiment and sor
row in a brandy julep. It had quite a cooling
and agreeable effect ; but when he sought his
purse to pay the bir-keeper, it was not to be
found. He stood mute for a moment ; but the
memory of ail that had passed came rushing
ipn him, and slapping his empty breeches
pocket, he cried : Done brown, by ! 1
felt her leaning against me as I spoke of the
connection between heaven and earth.'
The purse contained within a few dimes of
ninety dollars. We learned the story from the
hero of it, and consider i's moral loo good to
let it pass unnoticed, N. O. Picayune, lAfh.
Child destroyed by a Wild Beast. Yester
day in addition to the tremendous hail shower
which made every heart sad in the good town of
j Canterbury, eight miles northeast of us, another
matter made a great sensation in that town. A
chid of Jonathan Ayres, esq. aged about six
years, was sent into a pasture near the house
for some purpose, but not returning in due lime,
a searchrwas made for it ; and soon some of its
limbs were found, the most of its flesh having
been devoured evidently by some savage ani
mal. This discovery brought out the fact that
some f Jhe neighbors recently had had glimp
ses of a ferocious creature resembling a wolf,
whose den from its actions they supposed must
be in the woods near by. Such animals have
not been seen here much during the last quar
ter of a century, and we are told many men are
in pursuit of it to-day. The child was one of
much interest, and its family friends ire num
erous. Mr. Ayres is a member of our slate leg

All the leading and most reliahl. nn-f..
published in New York corroborate the
I statements contained inthc last preceding
paragraph. Mr. Spear, the special mcs
senger who arrived at New-York in the
steamship Cherokee, from New Orleans,
with Adams & Co.'s New Orleans expreSs
freight, states that he was present at the
I execution of the persons captured, and
j that the reports current of the, maltreat
j ment of their bodies after death are entire
ly untrue. They were conveyed in hand
some heapses to the grave, and decently
buried. Some vagabonds amused them
selves by kicking about solie of the discar
ded clothing of the prisons. This state
j ment, the New York Express says, is con
firmed by not less than twenty Americans
now in New York who saw the execu
tions. They all confirm the truth of the
, account brought by the messenger of Ad
ams's Express.
The Express has also the following re

certain fabricated despatches from New

Cubans themselves in armsshare a similar
fate. Whatever opposes or resists them
is ruthlessly destroyed, cut down, or fired.
In short, an island in a state of apparent
peace is thus, of a sudden, subjected by
strangers to all the horrors of war. It is
not wonderful, then. nay. is it not natural,
that these men, when captured, are shot ?

selves, in supposing that the Abolitionists
of England or of the Northern States
should take it into their heads thus to send
a steamer irom Liverpool or Boston to
Louisiana, to bring "the blessings of lib

who doubts then that the Louisianians
would shoot them, as they would mad.

It is of no use to reiterate the lie that
the Cubans are all in arms, that a revolu

is created as justifies foreign intervention.

The excitement which prevails in this city
