Dupay. Its acting i resident. Is that article As \4n Many others on Quot two and other subjects it manages to Tal a tilt to us at which we Are not at All surprised or much annoyed for in truth it would seem As if it could not live a single Day if it had not us to amp snarl at. But the reason in plus articular instance is that we Rhaye been so in considerate As to hold up to Public View the conduct of the times and its motives for this warfare against tie rail Quot Roiti company and that the Public is still looking at it and commenting upon it with a severity that makes a editor feel very uncomfortable. His equilibrium has in sequence become very much disturbed Jand he ads sort of Relief in calling a hard names in Short Quot us of to press Quot is in great affliction and bile and Black vomit comes issuing Forth As a natural Conse Quence. Wear characterized in language which we will not repeat As having falsified the times and this Little verb has been used several times lately with an emphasis and gusto which seems to say there take a that will you Well it Don t Cost much fan Effort after All. To use that word Evhen gets accustomed to it and besides it is the common language of Quot us of he express Quot who know its expressiveness. It is among the Quot amenities Quot of Intercourse which others like Urs Elps who Are regarded by the times As Quot beyond the Pale of authorized professional considerations Quot Are not supposed to be capable of using and sicely of appreciating. Well of haps there maybe some truth in that for we confess that we Are a Little indifferent As to what some May say about us for we have that old fog notion Sti hanging about us that it makes Ftp the Difloe rence in the world As to Quot the source from whence such things . But we will not dwell upon these Quot amenities Quot but proceed to show How utterly groundless Are the charges that we have misrepresented the times in these Matteis we have said that the editor of the time had asked for and obtained a pass at Pittsburgh to come Home with after he had refused a half fare ticket such As was Given to other stockholders when going Down to Pittsburgh to attend the election of director and yet in this very dispute he admitted last week that a free ticket to Home was Given him and that he accepted it but got off the train at Alliance and come Home by Way of Cleveland and has the pass yet in his Possession. Here is an admission and a denial almost in the same breath. Again we Are accused of falsifying him by saving that he sought and was refused an introduction to or. Dupuy the Man whom he had affected to hold in so much contempt and yet or. Edgerton the vice president says in answer to an inquirer upon that subject that he mentioned to or. Dupuyt Pittsburgh that or. Dawson was present and or. E. Asked or. Dupuy if he would be introduced to him and that or. Dupuy declined. Or. Edgerton says also that he handed or. Dawson a pass to come Home on As he. Did to some others at the same time. All these things were of common report soon after the stockholders returned from that i riveting. Again vre Are accused of falsifying him in saying to asked for a pass when the direct of were about to assemble Here last week and yet Here is his own language upon this subject which authorized what we said and a pc too 0"the directors of the Pittsburgh it. Wayne and Chicago Railroad meet this Day at the Rockhill House. Is Tom de pee up there he Thomas where s that pass now Don t Send us free to the do i. Don to cause it would be Over your Road and you won t do it will yo\x1"�?daioson s times april 26th. There it is elegance of expression and All Ani now we will allow our readers to judge whether it docs not Bear us out in saying that he asked for a pass. But Why so build we say anything More upon this subject ave have exhibited this creature to Public a sufficiently before this and we 1�av�j now again shown How utterly to undies were his charges against kor can we spend time to show How Ridic us Oil it appears that he should find encouragement for his course in the fact that cer tech Chicago editors refused a pass or that Thelio Arf passed ,pass a Gito be Given to ill editors in accordance with the a la Veland resolutions. We May lao Eire have to claim the indulgence of our i ers. A Little while longer while some we give them a history of this Man Blly a a Deaton Noble county some year to t a a per Skalar reasons for his icy filth in wok some incidents touching his Dunt fur in Liis City before he became one. Pess Quot and Fiir by get May inthe had some very jubilant Ialeja ambr the it Holt nge that suddenly came Tzolov Toni a Zeij the. Thel Imes and Ita Tel anti a. A itt the times Nian pvt so Long a Coit in his Issue yesterday of his doings in the a Itter of his frequent attacks upon the Pittsburgh Ort Wayne and Chicago rail Road company a ird one or More of its officers Indis Petsel Lirou ghost for the Sake of the relish it gives the thing with flings at us much of which we care hut Little a Whf. In All of it there Are but one or two things that we propose to notice. A a in the first place it is not the Railroad nor or. Dupuy nor any other officer that we have been defending in the allusions we ave made to the course pursued by the times towards the Railroad we have simply been showing How perfect Ray Rit Culous were its attacks and How a Parent the motives. We wished tha Public to look at i Iii Quot hat Light and judge of it accordingly. We have not apologized for the Road in any thing we have said on the subject nor was it necessary we we have been showing up the Man who attacked it that s All. We should not have made any allusion to or. Dawson s Quot taking or refusing a pass if he had hot paraded before the Public the fact that he had refused a half fare ticket to go to Pittsburgh and claimed a Merit for his Independence we alluded to Liis boasted efficiency and his advertising for proxies because we discovered that when he got to Pittsburgh. He seemed to have sunk jaw a into nothingness and was scarcely heard of except to vote his Stock. We named the amount of his Stock because he had himself boasted of having control of just that amount. We mentioned the $9,65 because that was just the sum he had himself said he intended to get Back from the company. We think we have succeeded in showing not Only that for All this bluster was not what to would like to have the Public believe it was but that it has not had the least effect on the management of the Road nor did it influence the stockholders Al the election for they almost unanimously a re elected the old Board. We referred to his having a ticket Given him to return from Pittsburgh to show How strikingly it was in contrast with the Independent spirit of one of his letters to is paper in which he boasts of not taking a half fare ticket. And As to whether he asked for it or whether it was tendered to him docs not alter the Case so that he accepted it nor does it change the matter that he left the train at Alliance and came Home by another route. After All his explanations he admits he did take a free ticket to come Back after having boasted of refusing one on his Way Down. We referred to his wanting a pass because the Day before the Board met Here he asked the acting president through his paper Quot what about that we to link to have shown up his motives pretty plainly and we believe he begins to be ashamed of them if indeed he can be made ashamed of anything. We have probably exhibited him enough in this matter to do him some Good and we leave him. The Sickles affair. A pure minded Man will never introduce into his family another whom to knows to be a libertine yet Sickles introduced key into his famil when he knew All the while that such was his character if what is reported about both of them be True for it is said they were associates and inter Matt companions in licentiousness. Sickles not Only introduces his companion in wickedness to his wife but he encourages by his own apparent Indi Terence an intimacy Between them altogether be Ond propriety. He allowed key to go and come with his wife to parties and places of Public entertainment and to be at his House on familiar terms during his absence and All this while Lia knew he was a bad Man and when consequences Fol Lowed such As he had himself encouraged he becomes suddenly very virtuously indignant and shoots Down the offender As if he were guided by the impulses of a pure minded Man and would have the world believe that such in fact was his character. This sad affair furnishes a melancholy instance of what dissipation leads to. It is simply a result of a vicious course of living and should a lesson never to be forgotten. It teaches that licentious company should to shunned As one would shun a poisonous vapor that saps the foundation of physical life. Vicious company is itself a moral Poison that is As certain if continued in to destroy All moral character and make Shipwreck of All Good intensions As a deadly Poison if taken in Quantity sufficient is sure to life itself. The one should be As studiously avoided As the other. Let All who Hope for position in this life even take warning from the melancholy spectacle to which we have been referring and avoid the causes which have led to these results. A the Gnu Ietti.

President Washio Toni there fore rented a House of or. Robert Morris Iii Market Street a tween fifth and sixth its. On the Smiith Side and furbished it handsomely but not Goi Sously. Tevere he lived with mrs. Washington or. Lear h is private. Secretary and his wife and mrs. Washington s grandson Custis making a part of the family. Young Custis had a private Tutor employed by the president who was engaged to attend on his Pupil one hour in the Winter mornings before breakfast and Olio then commonly with the president and his family. The president ate Indian cakes for breakfast and after the Vir a Ginis fashion although Bucko Lieut cakes were generally on the table. Washington s dining parties were entertained in a very Hiinds ome style. His Ivecek by dining Day for his company was thurs and his dining hour was always four o clock in the afternoon. His Rule was to allow five minutes for the variation of clocks and watches and then go to. The table be present or absent whoever might. He kept his own clock in the Hall just within the outward door and always exactly regulated. When lagging members of Congress name in As they often did after the guests had sat Down to dinner the president s Only apology was Quot gentlemen or sir we Are too punctual for you. I have a Cook who never asks whether the company has come but whether the hour has the company usually assembled in the drawing room about fifteen or Twenty minutes before dinner and the president Spok amp to every guest personally on entering the room lie has always dressed i 1 a suit of Black his hair powdered and tied in a Black queue behind with a very elegant dress sword which he wore with inimitable Grace mrs. Washington often but not always dined with the company sat at the head of the table and if. As was occasionally the Case there were other ladies present they sat at the foot of the table and was expected to be quietly attentive to All the guests. The president himself sat half Way from the head to the foot of the table and on that Side he a uld place mrs. Washington though Distant from him on his right hand. He always unless a Clergyman was preset it at his own table asked a Blessing in a standing posture. If a Clergyman were present he was requested both to ask a and to return thanks after dinner. The Center of the table contained five or six Large Silver or plated waiters those of the ends circular or rather Oval on one Side so As to make Quot the arrangement correspond with the Oval shape t f the table. The waiters Between the and pieces were in the form of parallelograms the ends about one third part of the length of the sides and the whole of waiters were filled with Alabaster , taken from the ancient my Tholos but none of them such As to offend in the smallest degree a against delicacy.

Aiding and abetting the Rescue of a fugitive from service and that the proceedings under said indictments Are still pending and undetermined before said District court. The separate application of Simeon Bush Nell indeed shows that he has been tried upon said indictment an found guilty and is now in custody awaiting the final judg. Mint and sentence of the court Tiit on being arraigned upon said indictment before a air District court he by his counsel moved the court to quash the same for various Rea on one of which was that the Law of 1850 upon which it was based is unconstitutional and void which motion the District court refused to Grant. A motion to quash addresses itself to the sound discretion of a court and is never granted except in very Clear cases but the defendant i.? left to Rai amp a the a i cation in a More formal Way by demurrer or motion in arrest of judgment. The refusal to Grant cannot be regarded As at final decision of the raised by the motion when the Point is on3 which if Well taken would be available on demure or in arrest of judgment indeed such motion should never amp granted if the question is in any degree doubtful but should be reserved for hear Iii on motion to Arr just the judgment.

Judgment or sentence having been pronounced and the question of jurisdiction being still an open one before that court we do not think the Case of Simeon Bushnell As to the question of jurisdiction distinguishable in principle from that of other realtors. Is it then legally competent for this court to withdraw the realtors from the District court in the custody of which they now Are charged with the violation of an act of con Gross while the proceedings against them Are still pending and undetermined and discharge them on the ground that the act of Congress upon which the indictment is based is unconstitutional and void ? the District court now has posses Sion of the Case and the parties to it and has the Legal Power and capacity to hear and determine for itself the question of its own jurisdiction and right to act in the premises. The Legal presumption in such cases always is that a court thus assuming to act will do ten nine the of its own jurisdiction correctly until it has finally acted upon it. If nce it is a Rule founded upon the comity which does and for the prevention of unpleasant collision should alwa3 a subsist Between judicial tribunals that Liere a court of general jurisdiction and legally com pet int to determine its own jurisdiction has acquired prior jurisdiction Dean to Over person or subject matter no other court will interfere with or seek to Avert its action while the Case is still pending and undetermined.

In our last Issue we gave ams account of the trial of the Oberlin rescuers resulting in the convict Orf of Bushnell and the re minding of the remaining prisoners in the custody of the jailor. Of the sul a Quant pro Cen dings the Cleveland Herald gives the following account the jail on saturday afternoon appeared More like a fashionable place of resort than a prison. Hundreds of ladies and gentlemen of the highest standing called on the Oberlin prisoners and left them but few intervals during the Day and evening for rest. On All sides they were greeted with assurances of sympathy and respect mingled with severe comments on the extra or by it for duct of District attorney Bel deft in ordering their in violation of All precedent and in contempt for ail decency and propriety. On sunday afternoon according to previous notice professor Peck one of the Oberlin rescuers committed to jail to a wait trial proceeded to address his Brethren in Bonds and such of the free As chose to come. The hour appointed was half past two o clock and at that time an immense crowd had gathered around the jail. The extensive jail Yard was literally packed with human beings the space and Street beyond filled every Quot roof and shed that afforded a Prospect of the preacher crowded and the windows of the new court Ijo Iise building occupied. A Large number of ladies were in the crowd in addition to those by the sheriff to the private apartments of the jail. The crowd was of the highest respectability and numbered Betel in three and four thousand persons. Prof. Peck stood just inside of the doorway of the jail and from that Point conducted the exercises which he opened with a Short prayer. The immense congregation then United in singing the hymn Quot my soul be on thy . Ten thousand i Oes arise the hosts of sin Are pressing hard to draw us from the a portion of the scripture was then read a prayer offered and the congregation Sang the hymn Quot am i 11 Sondler of the Cross a Follower of the Lamb ? and shall i fear to own his cause or Blush to speak his name ? professor Peck then read his text from Mathew in. 9. Quot and As Jesus passed Forth from thence he saw a Man named Mathew sitting at the receipt of custom and Saith unto him follow at the conclusion of the Sermon a prayer was offered the doxology Sung and the congregation dispersed very Many passing through the jail and shaking hands with the prisoners. On monday the court backed out of its decision ordering the trial of the other cases by the former jury allowed another jury composed with a single exception of administration democrats to be the trial is still in Mansfield Herald.

Exp Rte Booth 3 wis rep. 145. The history of this Case is As follows Booth had been arrested on warrants granted by a United states commis Signor for aiding in the of a fugitive slave from service contrary to the Law of 1850.r�? one of the judges of the supreme court of Wisconsin upon Jia Beis Corpus discharged Booth from Tho custody of the marshal on the ground that the Law of 1850 As to fugitive slaves wins unconstitutional among other things in authorizing commissioners so.

The notorious slave trader c. A. Lamar has openly defied the Federal government making ostentatious Parade of his commission of a crime declared piracy by Law and made with death. He has even had the United states marshal and citizens who aided him arrested for taking from his Possession part of the wanderer victims of his villainy. Though he is at length indicted at Savannah we have Little expectation that the government will take much i Ains to secure his conviction Gorsuc cold in finding a Georgia jury to convict him if they do. The now York times says of this in a ii visual Quot in is perfectly Well understood that or. Lamar makes no secret of his share in the transaction that he proclaims everywhere the fact that he owned Tho wanderer that she sailed under his orders that she brought Over a cargo of slaves by his directions mat the were landed in Georgia and Are now within the limits of that Tate. Unless we have been entirely misinformed or. Lamar has Alten occasion More than once to present Soma of these imported negroes to Federal officers in Georgia and to inform them very explicitly that these negroes were brought from Afi Ica in the wanderer by his express Agency and explicit cholera. At sometime or other when it suits the convenience of the government or. Lamar will probably to tried for these fragrant and acknowledged violations of the Law of the United states. He is evidently confident of an instant acquittal not from any doubt or denial of Iris guilt but because he has full Faith in the determination of a Savanah jury to commit perjury for the Sake of nullifying a Law of the United states and the slave Trade. Whether this Confidence is or is not Well placed we shall probably know in due course of if such an offender is allowed to go unpunished we May confidently expect to see a extensive piratical traffic Between the african coast and this country at once reopened. The Only Hope is in making a conspicuous example or two now Lamar is the right person to begin Cin. Gaz. £xfiiessl7 Fok the daily ref Bucan. New York May 3.
