A' Desperate Battle. —From St.
Joseph, Mo., we learn that a company of
105 men in the Washoe settlement, under
the command of Maj. Ormsby, wentin
pursuit of the Indians wl|) jiad
some whites gt. Miller’s' station. They
came upon the Indians, numbering 500,
and well armed, at a narrow pass T sixty
five miles from Virginia city. Ihe Indi
ans reopened a fire on the troops fsom
.behind; the rooks and bushes, doing dam
age without suffering much in return.r—
This lasted two hours, when the ammuni
tion of the Ormsby party gave out, and
the Indians closed upon them killing many
on the spot. The balance retreated in all
directions., The number of slain will pro-,
bably reach fifty. May. Ormsby was
among the slain. Only thirty-eight of the
patty reached Virginia city. The news
of the battle caused great excitement in
California, and companies Were leaving for
the country to chastise the In
, dians.
Gift Books. —We have just received
from G. G. Evans, the originator of the
Gift Book business, in Philadelphia,
copies of the “ Life and Adventures of
Gen.' Sam Houston,” and the “ Life of
the Empress Josephine.”. The books are
executed in excellent style, and can not
be sold at retail at less .than Mr. Evans
asks for them/ but with each he gives a
gift worth from 50 cents up to 8100.—
The books are, in themselves, worth much
mqrc than the price asked for them, being*
the biography of two persons of world
wide reputation, whose lives exhibit a
vicissitude of fortunes so|dsm met with,
and a heroism at all times truly praise
worthy. Price of the books £l,OO each,
with a gift. Address G. G. Evans, No.
489 Chestnut st., Philadelphia. We must
here bear testimony to the punctuality
and fair dealing of Mr. Evans in all his
business transactions with us; and we
believe he will be as punctual and fair
with all who deal with him in the book
line. ? *
The Cattle Disease. —A disease
known as pleuro-pneumonia, a lung dis
ease, which for the last year has proved
so fatal among the herds of Massachusetts,
has, we are sorry to say, broken out among
the cattle of New Jersey, and, the lower
counties of this State. One farmer in
Bucks county has lost all of his best stock
by ibis disease. The Commissioners of
Massachusetts have killed oyer 1000 head
of cattle, at .an appraisal of §20,000, to as
certain, if possible, the cause of tta disease
and discover a cure. Those who have care-
' folly studied' this distemper consider it
eoutagious but not infectious, that is to
say, that the disease is communicated by
actual contact, but not by any morbific
influence carried in the air. /
to .be. hoped that this destructive
maladymay not obtain a permanent fooi
holdin this State, as thc’reby the hopeis
aUdfortunfes of many of our most , thrifty
•formers wrould be blasted, it is said that
.the decease .|fas brought by cattle, from
Massachusetts sold in the New York mar
ket and purchased by Per
sons purchasing cattle should be careful
to know where they came from. avoid,

disease has broken out. r .

Power, the popular proprietor of the above
Hotel, situate on Market sL, between 6th

with him James Boon, of Lancaster, in the
proprietorship, and the patrons, of the
house vlill now receive more attention to
their coljmforts than it was possible for
one man to bestow. This Hotel is one of
the most eligibly located! in the city for
business men, being in the very heart of
the business portion. The terms have
been reduced t 051,25 per day without
any*diminution in accommodation. The

of the best managed and most comfortable
stopping places in the city. -4-

a horse and some other articles, and .on
Sunday night demanded She bid main’s
money, and threatened to take his life if
it was not given to him. The old man
told him he was old, and needed all hehad
to support himself and wife, and ordered
him p go Way. It seems the son had
not been porbiitted to enter the house op
this occasion, but broke the door .to effect
an entrance, and as he entered was shot
down by his father and died in. a few'.mi •;

! Most Esteemed Hakodadi : —We have
been invited* to visit next in order the
great city of Phi-la-del-phia, or “the place
consecrated to fraternal affection/’ the ca
pitdl of the provin’ce which is the birth
place of the American Tycoon. Our re
ception, we are informed, will be attended
with themoat august ceremonies that the
city'ever offers to its most distinguished
ghosts. The Couneilmbn, after examin
ing our credentials; have decided to place
us:on a footing with “the most favored”
foreign Fire Companies,
j Ail the military of the Province, ordi
narily engaged in other avocations, will be*
in arms. This will enable us to report,
f]rOm our own observation, upon the ex
tent of toe military power of this vast
country. Do not fear that this large dis
play will induce us to act otherwise than
becomes the dignity of 1 our nation; for al
though we have in our whole empire but
480,000 soldiers, they are fully equal to
plain tain our security, armed with two
svtords and entire devotion. There will
also be a-great exhibition of “squirts” on
our arrival. These, it seems, are general-
Jy prominent on all such occasions, and
ijiave quite a notoriety here.
|* The details of our reception by the
American Tycoon you have in my former
letter. He is called, not Tycoon, but Pro
vident j sometimes, however, by a strange
analogy of language** “ old coon." At first
I, thought this an attempt to pronounce
bpr Japanese phrase, but am'assured that
it is Strictly idiomatic, and implies astute
ness and age. It certainly seemed appii
cable to the head of the nation who re
ceived us.
i We find it very difficult to comply with
the demands of our sovereign, forbidding
jus to touch the women of this country. —
Not from any disposition on our part to
,disobey, but from their desire to seize us
by our hands. They are apparently allow
ed here the greatest freedom,'but it is only
jin appearance. Every woman, married Or
jangle, is fastened in a cage of bamboo or
flexible steel, extending from the waist to
the feet. This seems to be so - arranged as
to give them no uneasiness, but they are
Very much ashamed of it, and conceal it
under so many coverings that it renders
their appearance quite ludicrous. - They
, are unrestricted as to the upper part of
their persons, which they are permitted to
expose, as much as they wish. This they
seem to avail themselves of, and on all oc
casions of high ceremony, wear very low
(Hesses. As in all barbarous nations, they
slit their ears and suspend from them of- j
naments of gold . and silver. They also
paint and, powder themselves, and after
1 greasing their hair, twist it into fantastic
I Shapes and fasten it up with long pins and
i Combs. Some of them would be fine-look
| ing, if they did not disfigure themselves
by the hideous and vulgar custom of wear
ing eyebrows and keeping their teeth
fwhite. Be assured, therefore, that.we arc
| in no danger of being captivated by their
! appearance; we feel nothing but, regret
i that the barbarous and absurd customs of
I man should thus destroy the charms which
cultivation and refinement would so much
Nothing strikes ps so much as the want
of respect these barbarians show even to
their highest dignitaries, j they never hes
itate to spit before them, and it requires
considerable activity to prevent being spat
upon at all times. The custom of wearing
one sword, it seems, originated from this
cause, as it enables you to avoid with
greater facility the saliva of your neigh
bor. Chewing tobacco is much prized, it
seems, from the saliva it produces, which
is preserved, when possible, in handsome
vases of .porcelain, and placed in promi
nent positions. None of the inhabitants
do reverence by crawling on their bellies,
except the election of a new Tycoon,
when those in search of office come to the
central city and perform that cercniony.
Those who are fortunate Enough to meet
with honor from the Tycoon seldom walk
uprightly during their whole term of of
fice. The unfortunate applicants become
.at once censors qr spies upon the others,
and their silence has to be bought at a
high price. All public servants haye
their price, vthich rises or falls . according
to the necessities of the Tycoon. But I
shall reserve my reflections on political
topics till I have another opportunity to
address you. Until then rest in peace.

which sWcpt over at large district in that
county last, and a^brief no
tice of which we: liave already given' 6ur
reader. ' About noon, our cotempo
rary, a heavy, black olotid was seen advan
cing about thirty rods south of gt. Charles
Furnace. An aWfnl roaring sound accom
panied it, and passing-on to the farm of a
Mr. .Shoemaker, it burst with terrible fhry,
tearing his bouse and barn into fragments
attdWeaking one of bis legs ; the dwell
ing of Mr. Thomas Dougherty was next
struck, and which, was blown to pieces,
the furniture broken to atoms, and his
daughter killed; next the house of McCon
nel Henry was blown down and-his wife
seriously hurt. The barn of Jos. Smith
was completely wrecked. . The house of
Mr. Charles Stewart, three-quarters Of a
. mile north of New Bethlehem, was blown
down and bis wife killed, and other mem
bers of the family injured: The storm, in
passing through Hessville, destroyed the
tavern of Nathan Hane, and killed his
daughter. In passing north of Millville,
the storm destroyed the '■ barns of Jabot)
•Hartzell, John apd Samuel Shicb, the
house of John Mohney was blown to pie
ces and his wife carried away, and, up to
twelve o’clock that night, no traces of her
had been found.
In its course' the storm did not strike
either Millville or New Bethlehem, but
beyond the former place it struck the vil
lage of Hessville. In this place where a
number of dwellings, brick, frame and log,
and also a large grist mill, and a substan
tial bridge, spanning Redbank; every
house, barn, mill, bridge., and store of Ir
vin McFarland were destroyed and four
lives lost. Among the killed were the
wives of Irvin McFarland and Mr. Hess.
A terrible hail-stonu. passed through a
portion .of Porter and Redbank townships
which in its course did immense damage.
Besides destroying every fence in its
track, fields of grain were badly injured,
and as a matter of course, being left open,
the cattle got in and committed still fur
ther ravages. Taken altogether, an im
mense amount of damage has been sus
tained iu the townships of Porter pnd
Redbank, and the Banner thinks it will
take 8100,000 to cover the loss.
John Iverson was recently arrested
and imprisoned at the South for aggrava
ted polygamy ; he had thirteen wives.' —
The daughter of the jailor whose hospita
lity this insatiable polygamist was enjoy
ing while awaiting his trial, believed him
innocent, pitied him, loved him, opened
the prison doors, fled with him, and be
came his fourteenth wife. After eight
days of domestic bliss the husband disap
peared, and left neither trace nor money
behind. A reward was offered for his cap
ture ; a description of his fascinating per
son was circulated, he Was recognjzgd in a
village tavern by a man,who thought of
the reward offered, and set about prepa
ring his foils for the victim. In order to
instil confidence into his breast, he made
his acquaintance, invited him to his man
sion, and then went off to procure legal
assistance. When he returned, his home
was deserted alike of his intended prey
and his wife.

The Cincinnati Enquirer eayS that the storm which
recently swept through | the valley of the Ohio, was only
about two hours going! from Louisville to Portsmouth, n
distance by an air lino of ICOjiniles, When it fa borne in

fastest locomotive ever run.

down in torrents, damaged nearly every room in the house
El.-gnnt carpets, furniture, painting, etc, were completely
ruined. The mutter was made worse, owing to the fact
that Judge Douglas is lying very ill with a throat disease.”
Putrid Sore Throat. —This singular and fatal disease
has desolated many households in various parts of the
State. In Couowngo township, York county, five persons
have died in one family ,\and two others are now down with
the disease. Another'family buried ten of its members
within a short time. The disease attacks adults and chil

So he did. And more; he made the little codger too the

he kicked him clear over the pools of peril; and by the
cuff of the neck dragged him howling up the hill of great
