Backbiting.—Never say of one who is absent, what you would bo afraid or ashamed to say if he wero present. "He of whom vov delight to speak evil," says a wise moralist, "may hear of it, and become your enemy, or if he do not, you will have to rcproch yourself with the meanness of attackiiv one who had no opportunity of defending himself. Never listen to those who deal in scandal! ho who slanders one to you, will slander you to another." Tale-hearers -make talc-bearers; and hence Dr. South said "the talc-bearer and talc-hcarcr should bo 1 ^ hanged together, the one by the car and tho other by the tongue,"

Sgf The veto of the President, of the bill passed by Congress just before its adjourn meet, appropriating a portion of the public ¦ . lands to Agricultural Colleges, is bitterly condemned by the press of the country. It was purely a farmers bill—a measure designed to benefit agriculturalists. It failed Jmwwer7 to meet the views of the Executive B-and was vetoed to satisfy the demands of ^Kc South. Southern interests overwhelmed ^morfj principle tending to elevate or improve ¦ he condition of -the free-white labor of the aiopth—and.this bill, like the revenue laws, ^intended to shield tho manufacturing interests of the country, has been literally defeated by the slave power. The Executive was ' forced to yield—forced to veto a bill giving land to .educate those who are destined to enhance the raise of the public domain merely to satisfy the insane opposition of men who fancy they see in every movement towards the elevation of white labor, an embrte crusade against slavery. The ag...

JS®*Seuator Cameron has a shy way off backing up his charge af corruption against the administration of Mr. Buchanan. When he prefers a charge, and it is either questioned or denied, he moves for the appointment of an investigating committee, but the Senate rarely responds to his motion. In his charge of corruption on the post-office blank printing, comprising wholesale plunder and division among Senators and department officials, aided by Mr. Rice, late of the Pennsylvaniun, he asked for such a committee, but the Senate refused to comply with his request. Rice was paid $40,000 for doing work which printers would readily have performed for §6,000. This is the way the money goes ! No appropriations for Agricultural Schools, but thousands of dollars to prop broken down politicians. Oh! for the purity of the Duquesne letter.

The Washington City Tragedy; The account which we publish of the dreadful tragedy in Washington City, has caused a thrill of horror to pass through the country,andthe comments which it has elicited are as numerous as. they are different. To kill a human being places any man in a position of dreadful responsibility. To feel that your honor has beeifeompromiscd, that one in whom you had invested hope and love was false, false, too, by the accessory of a villain, false to devotion's holiest vows, is sufficient to.exc...

Horrible Tragedy. Washington City was thrown into an intense excitement on Sunday last, the 27th ult., hy the killing of Philip Barton Kejv, United States District Attorney for the District of Columbia, by the hands.of Hon. Daniel E. Sickles, Member Of Congressfrom the City of New York. It appears, from the most reliable reports, that Mr. Sickles—his wife, it is said, having confessed that she had visited a Bouse of prostitution with Key —becoming convinced of the truth of certain scandalous rumors involving his wife, resolved to revenge his wrongs, and about two o'clock on Sunday afternoon proceeding from his residence, near the President's House, to the south east'eorner of Lafayette Square, in the same neighborhood, where Mr. Key was engaged in conversing with Mr. Butterworth, of New York, and charging Mr. Key with having dishonored him and destroyed his domestic peace, shot him with a revolver—one of the balls entering the left si.de of his body and passing thro' the corresp...

Purviance, of Butler, and Hon. J. C. Kunkle, of Dauphin. These gentlemen are pronounced by the Telegraph as each equally capable for the duties of the position to which they aspire, but is disposed to regard the agitation of this question as entirely pre* mature. We have no doubt that when the proper time comes the great anti-Democratr 5c party of the State will select a candidate who will command the respect and concernirate the strength of the masses of the OppositioST^Uhd,. bear their banner in triumph through the'campaign.*

The Growth of Liberty. The fifth lecture of the season, before tho Bellefonte Feneibles, was delivered by Hon. A. G. Curtin- on Tuesday evening last on The Growth of Liberty. Notwithstanding the inclemency of the weather, the vast court-room was filled with a large audience,, and-thc lecture received with marked satisfaction and approval. The subject embraced a wide field for exploration—and as the facts centained in the history and progress of this mighty principle came np for notice and discussion, the deductions which he made proved that ho had made himself acquainted with their influence, and that he was able to apply and exhibit them in their best light. Liberty as a principle, could scarcely be described as having a growth. It was an idea co-eval with existence, and appeared at certain periods in the world's history, to redeem and elevate mankind. The growth of this idea, was exhibited, if not fairlj' , at least grandly in the structure of the Roman Empire—and although in ...

FROM WASHINGTON ' All the general appropriation hills which passed both houses received the President's signature. The Post Office appropriation and posroute bills failed ta become laws. The former appropriated about twenty millions. "Whether an extra session will be called in consequence of its loss, is a matter for Executive consideration. So far no reliance can be placed on the rumors to that effect. The miscellaneous appropriation bill contains the section extending the treasuty-noto law for two years, and appropriates §425,000 for the coast survey, which was agreed to with singular*unanimity, besides appropriations for the light-house establishment, survey of the public lands, and an appropriation for taking the next census, etc. The President was at the Capitol this morning, attending to business. The House failed as has heretofore been the practice, to send the President a message asking whether' there was any further communication to make, and that Congress was ready to ...

by a mere reference—and yet he did not leave untouched any of the transactions in the world's history which marked theGrowth of Liberty. It must also he home in mind that the lecturer was unable to use even his meagre notes—yet names and dates were given with great accuracy, and the events in application clearly portrayed. Of course he indulged occasionally during the delivery of his lecture in his characteristic good hnmor, and in one portion almost paraphrased the sweet German accent and rich Irish Brogue of Gen. Scott, but these were only side allusions, excused at the time by the audience, eliciting their share of merriment." Altogether, we are compelled to .pronounce it equal, if not superior to any of the lectures delivered during the season. On motion of James Maemanus, Esq., tho thanks of tho audience were tendered to Captain A. G. Curtm, and to the Bellefonte Fencibles, for the opportunities they 3iave afforded of hearing so many able and ¦distinguished lecturers.
