Dnring his confinement in jail he tore or broke out the register of the furnace In his cell, the seats from his privy, the wash-boards, etc. He told the keeper that he wonld never be guilty of mnrder, but that he Would never abandon stealing, for which he appears to have a strong propensity. The crime for which he was sent to the penitentiary was for stealing a male. John Good, the last earned who escaped from jail, while at large, stole some nine head of cattle in the neighborhood of Frederick, and before our anthori-ties heard of his whereabouts he was arrested and convicted of the crime and sentenced to the Baltimore penitentiary, for the term of twenty years It is, therefore, not very likely, that our court will ever be troubled to try him for the crime charged against hlm Wt, The following song was writteu by McGrannagan, oneof the prisoners charged with the Sqiflbb murder, which, we think, will prove somewhat amusing to our readers. We give it verbatum, according to the manuscript Air Wilkimb and His Dina. Gome listen, my boys, and Ill sing yon a song, Just give your attention, Ill not keep you long Come listen to me and my fate youll bewail. The time I was locked up in York County Jail. I arrtoeddn this place a short time ago. Where cursing and swearing it seems all they know; I had nothing to do and the time its emed long, So I put this together to make up a song. The first in my line is one von all know. Theres a man in here by the name of John Lowe, A long legged sinner without any doubt He is better off here than if he was out. Nnw. Ifthp 1-A- mm lKf tWo TVvxazxx And the jail is the place he Is to be found Six months was his sentence for committing an assault Ou a thick headed Dutchman who resided in York. Now John is a man that does like his Beer, As for Croat aud Pretsels for them he dont care, As for some whiskey he'll gently do his share, And if you give him that he'll be happy in here. As for the Sheriff Ive nothing to say. He lets us walk out lu the hall every day He gives us some beef, not enough for a rat, He would give us more but he's afraid well get fat. There is an object that is here in jail, Her uanie it is Kate, she wants to get bail, For robbing a Dutchman whose name I cant tell, He's got Kate in jari and she is doing right well. There is a man in this town I must put in this song, Hes the biggest rascal you ever will find; He keeps a hotel or some such a place. And to the town of York he is surely a disgrace. Tie one that I mean is well knowu in town. And the rum he sells will shnrelv knock you down, A fat headed rascal, whoee words is like honey And robbing the soldiers is where he made his money. The next it is Adams that is in this place, A poor simple fool, you can tell bv his face A fiddling away he thinks himself some. But hes not a Bit better than any old bum. And there is his partner, whose name it is Holmes, A long legged rascal who is all skin and bones, Another old bum who is always a blowing. He got sent to jail for stealing old clothing. There is Wilson in here, who belongs in this county, Since the war it is over he can get no bounty, He will serve the state a good many days, Because a horse with him did run away. The next in my line you may think its a joke. When I tell you there la two niggers in here as Black as smoke There is no Copperheads about them, there decend-auts of Ham, Two genuine Darkies and there both Black Republicans, There is a thick headed Dutchman theyve got in here His name it is Good, he belongs in Hanover, He's a thick headed Dutchman they over, He belongs in this county aud resides in Hanover. Theres a female in here who is a disgrace, I omit her name, suffice it to say, she's a pretty hard case She does like the darkies, the homely old louse, For being so nasty they turned her out of the Poor House. There Is another in here I must mention in my son His name it is Whirley and he comes from Dillstown For commiting a burgurlary on the store of one Nelson They opt him in jag fi leMon, There Is a chap connected with this institution, His g.ame Ill not mention, hes black with polution; A stingy old rooster as mean as a louse, He wanted to give 25 cents a day to White Wash his house. There is a thick headed brushmaker who works every day. Hie pay is low and yet he manages to make it go; He's locked op every night vet bee in sight of Johnson; I would gladly see them both out of sight for they wrangle day and night. There Is one in here well known by the name of Mule He at first was thought by many a fool, 8ince the assault he made with pepper on the keeper He's thought shurely no fool, bat an educated mute. There is another in here I cannot pass by. His charge is trifling I'm share, his name It is Page, He's a commie genius and by profession a Parasol maker, He was put in on Saturday night for splitting or stealing a rail. Nojr theres another in here, a Partner of Wilson of whom youve heard tell. His name it is Bell, his charges are too numerons to tell, Hes in for horse stealing, but he says he has no bug- An gies to sell, I if he gets no farther than here he's doing well. ihe lilt: lOKR DIAKHET Corrected weekly by P. .4.

Argues the Times, if we oan remove the cause of controversy about the negro, that eontroveisy itself will be without a pretext and must cease to exist. This we can do by accepting the situation, and becoming the advocates of impartial suffrage, whan it would be with the Slates severally to fixe the standard of oitizeoship. few negroes in tie Southern States would reach the lowest standard that could be fixed, and as a political element would be contemptible, and under the control of superior intelli geoce and superior numbers. In thjOSe Northern States in which the people want negro suffrage, they will have it anyhow, and no harm can come from the Democratic party agreeing to what it cannot prevent. Thus we would upset the only pretext for the exclusion of the Southern States from representation, and revive the Dem cratic party, restoring it to its pristine grcatBess, And recommitting the reins of gpveroment to its bands. Better this, thinks the Times, than to submit to a total rout, disorganization and demoralization. This is the case in a nutshell as put by the Times. Let every man view it fpr himself No compromise is proposed with the Radicals, but some strategy, for the purpose of putting them. hamduxiomkatrfid snateMog from their hands the sceptre of rule. There is no occasion for the Radicals to felicitate themselves upon having educa (ed Democracy up to their faith. Tbety; no union of light with darkness of truth with falsehood. The Democratic party is a national party theirs is a sectional party Democrats are patrTotsf Radicals arc traitors, loyal traitors, if they like the term THE TRIAL OF DON AVAN. The trial of WilliamDonavan, for the 7 murder or George ana, as one of the parties to the conspiracy that, resulted in the murder of the whole Squibb family, after eight tedious and wearisome days, was conclude 1 on Friday last. The whole of Friday, urrtrHr odocferin the evening, was occupied by the coun sl in addressing the jury. J. W. Bit-tinger, opened on the part of the Commonweal and P. Wickes, on the part of the prisoner. His speech was one of much force and ability. S. Forrv and James B. Ziegler. had spoken in behalf of the prisoner, H. L. Fisher, Esq the other counsel for the Commonwealth closed, in an argument that presented the Commonwealths case, in all its strength After hearing the charge of the Court, the Jury retired, and, after being out for three hours and a half, brought in a verdict at half past eleven oclock, P. M. of guilty of murder in the first degree Upon hearing the verdict, the- prisoner betrayed not the least emotion, but presented the same calm exterior and apparent indifference that had marked his bearing throughout the progress of the trial. Upon being approached, after hi doom had been delivered, he protested his innocence, as he has always done heretofore, and remarked that it was a pity to hang an innocent man. The trial excited much interest from the beginning to the conclusion of it. A crime of such atrocity as the cold-blooded butchery of an entire family is unparalleled in this community, and, is of rare occurrence among any civilized people, in modern times. It was scarcely less diabolical in its commission, and horribly sickening in its details than the massacre of the Deering family, by the demon Probst, which so lately occurred in Philadelphia, and is yet fresh in the minds of all. Though we may eommisserate the folly and passion that prompted a crime so dark and damnable, and sympathize with the unfortunate families and friends of the guilty perpetrators, God, humanity, and society demand that the extreme penalty of the law be visited upon them. In the ease of Donavan, his counsel made a motion for a new trial. Whether it will be granted or not, or, what the grounds for the motion are, we cannot say at the present writing. II granted, and it shall appear that Donavan is not the guilty man, that the jury adjudged him to be from the evidence produced by the Commonwealth, while it will be matter of regret that one or all of the murderers are still at large, it will be subject for Congratulation that an innocent man was not made to expiate their If found guilty a second time, no one would be found to express a doubt as to the justness of thejudgmentagainst him. If a new trial is refused, it will be because sufficient reason does not appear fcf granling it. A writ of error Supreme Court is the final resort for the prisoner. Whether or not, in case a new trial is denied, it would be taken, depends, no doubt, on circumstances, of which the prisoners counsel alone have cognizance. The strongest evidence produced against the prisoner was from the frequent threats that he had maSe to have revenge upon Squibb, on account -aftkv of aIoVt Suit i Ij ty had' had some seven years agof about a cow. The Commonwealth also exhibited bloody clothesbelonging to the prisoner, and several hatchets that had been found in his possession with blood on them, also some hair represented lo be his, as evi- Jesse Engles, whom the Democ racy of York County, elected Sheriff, by the magnificent majority of 2,527, at the late lection, took the required oath and entered upon the duties of-the office on Saturday last. If we may judge from the business qualifications of Mr. Engles and the estimation in which he is held by his numerous friends, we predict that he will make an efficient and popular officer. He took up his residence in the jail on Monday, on which occasion, a large nudfcer of his most intimate, personal and political friends were present, by invila. tian, and recetvedTfie Bospffatmes, for which' he is so well and widely known. We regret our inability to be present on the occasion. All who were present were highly delighted with the entertainment. Daniel Miller, the newly elected Commissioner, entered upon the duties of the office during the week of the Court. Wm- Kilgore, the new Director of the Boor, has also catered upon the duties of the office. Thomas G. Grbss, Jacob S. Stickle, William Tash, and Henry Reisinger, will assume the duties of Prothonotary, Register; Clerk of the Courts, and Recorder, on the first of De-cember. 5FMessrs.

Mr. Editor It seetns now-a-days that to be a candidate on the Radioal ticket for Congress, pays well, notwithstanding your defeat may have been over-whelmoig. Hardly has the excitement occasioned by our Stqje election died away, when we hear it said that the seats of the three out of the four Conservative Congressmen elected will be contested by their Radical opponents. What seems so strange in this matter to our people is, that after trampling under foot all laws, and placing men of their party to be the judges of the qualified voters at every II, aud on the day of election refusing to receive ooe.third of the qualified registered voter8 n0w to cry fraud and prepare petitions signed by the same election officers certifying that illegal votes were polled, for the purpose of contesting the seats of the elect. Heretofore nearly every seat contested by be Radical candidates has been won in favr, no matter on wfiat grounds it was contested, and it being a paying business to oppose, the defeated candi-dates 0f onr State think they might as web make a good thing, as any other What the'next Cohgress wTR do FEED Mixed Coin and Oats bush.O 90 Oil Meal do Shorts, qj 160 lb Ship-stuff do do Plaster Paris q) ton do Jo Ground RETAIL PRICES FLCUR Family, Ip bbl.

The Radical press is exceedingly jubilant over what it is pleased to term the new role of the Democratic party, as in dicated lately in the editorial columns of the Chicago Times, followed up by the Boston Post and the Albany Argus, which, if possible, have surpassed the Times in their advocacy ot a change front by the Democratic party This change of front is nothing more nor loss than an acceptance of the situation, and an adaptajkm of the tactics of the Democratic fifty to the changed order of things, in regard to the status of the negro, as brought about by the verdict of a majority of the people, Tn ihe Etc elec Though negro -suffrage was not made a direct issue by the Radicals in any of the States, that held elections this fall, it was vehemently opposed, by the Democrats in all of them as a not very remote certainty, should the Radical revolutionists obtalFa new'Tease on" power. It was by denying, and not by admitting that a Radical triumph atthe polls would be a viotory lor the negro that the Dis-unionists obtained the suffrages of the people. Had they preseuted the issue of negro suffrage flat-footed, we doubt very much, whether the wooden horse would even have got within the walls of Troy. But, whether through delusion or passion and party prejudice, or persuasion and conviction, the broad fact stares us boldly in the face that an ignorant and inferior race, only yesterday freed from bondage, but in the swaddling clothes of civilization, is to have conferred upon it political which it is not capable of exercising, and a political equality that it can never hope to maintain, to be fnllttvarl Jtn oaaiqI dation of the superior white race, if the flame's of civil and social war do not sooner consume the idol of mongrelism from ihe face of the continent, and forever dissolve an unnatural alliance. The Pandoia box has been opened, and our political woes will be heaped moun tain high, or cover the land like the leaves of Vallambroosa, if the dark and evil spirit that, assassin-like, is insidious ly stubbing and mangling the fair form of Constitutional liberty, is not checkmated, baffled and overthrown. This is what we understand is proposed to be done by the Chicago Times, the Boston Post, and th? Albany Argus and this alone. IfGod Almighty himself, from the very throne of the highest heaven, with the voice of omnipotence itself, were to endeavor to exorcise the demoniac spirit of Radicalism, by proclaiming the great truths of nature and of natures God, it would heed not, since the teach of Uw'ereatioh and revelation are defied and disregarded by this same spir it. The varied interests and aspirations of humanity, that entangle the truths of philosophy and religion, warp the judgments of men, and oarry their consciences captive to avarioe, pride, and revenge. The glitter of gold, the joyousness of pride, and the sweetness of satisfying his vengeance has led many a man into a labyrinth of sorrows, and made him the victim of- ambition, while he imagined himself the avenger of wrongs, and injuries. St. Paul, while on earth, often found expediency the shortest and most available road to the goal of right, truth; and justice. He humored the prejudices that he might the better influence the principles of those among whom his mission was to do good And, a greater than he, Christ, the God-aan did likewise Had the Girondists been twice as aggressive as they were, the bloody and wicked reign of Jacobinism would never have been half so terrible and ruinous as it was. They should have flanked the party of Robespierre. The betrayal of a lurking and lingering affection for the old Bourbon regime was fatal lo their existence as tf par ty, and culminated in ruin, destruction, literal butchery legalized, and final despotism. Had they turned their backs upon their murdered King, and rivalled the Jacobins in shouting equality and fraternity, the stroke of expediency, might have given tLuUi the power that would have enabled them td punish the excesses of their rivals, and establish a government, in which would have been preserved what was good in the old, and incorporated what wag good in those other governments, the liberality of whose institutions ikvras sought to emulate. The position of the Chicago Times may TboSwBesis, is the late elections have been victorious. One of the first fruits of their victory frill be the clothing the blacks with the. right of suffrage, and making that suffrage universal.

Such watches are composed of several hundred pieces, screwed and riveted together, and re quire constant repairs to keep them in any kind of order. All persons who have cartied uncres, lepines ard English Patent Levers, are perfectly well awate of the truth of this statement-At the beginning of our enterprise, more than ten years ago, it was our first object to make a thoroughly good low-priced watch for the milliofi, lo take the place of these foreign impositions the refuse of foreign factories which were entirely unsaleable and perfectly worthless everywhere. How well we have accomplished this may be understood trom the fact, that after so many yeats of public trial, we now make MORE THAN HALF OF ALL THE WATCHES SOLD IN THE UNITED STATES, and that no others have ever given such universal satislaction. While this department of our business is centiuued with increased faculties for perfect work, we are at present engaged in the manufacture of watches of the very higheet grade known in chronometry, unequal led by anything hitherto made by ourselves, and unsurpassed by anything made in the world. For this purpose we hare the amplest facilities. We bpve erected an addition to our main buildings expressly for this branch of our business, and have filled it with the best workmen in our service. New machines and appliances have been constructed, which perform their work with consumate delicacy and exactness The choicest and most approved materials only are used and we challenge com parison between this grade of our Work and the finest imported Chronometers. We do not pretend to sell our watches for less money than foreign watches but we do assert with out fear of contradiction that for the tame, money our product is incomparably superior. All our watches, of whatever grade, are fully warranted and his warrantee is good at all times ngaipt us or our agents in all parts of the world. UAtmos.

There never was a period in the history of any oountry, whan it was more difficult to see what a year, or even a few months, may bring forth. In the early period of peace things looked hopefully, and under the benign influences of a patriotic President, he wounds between the sections seemed to be rapidlv healjng. But ever since his Constitutional policy has been trodden beneath the feet of a sectional Con gress, matters have been getting worse, and apprehensions have been expressed by men of the soberest mdgmenf, that the party passions now raging so furious Iv will terminate in war, extending hronghout the whole length and breadth of th- land.
