- SERVES Trinar RIGHT.—WC see that many of our exchan
ges are complaining bitterly of the wrongs they suffer at
the hands of eastern city advertisers. They have publish
ed every thing in the shape of advertisements, taking
"promises tolpay" for pay. When they send for their
goods or money, the advertisers are nowhere to be found.
No wonder such papers are crowded with the humbugs of
the day—the editors are too easily caught with chaff. We
keep our columns clear of all such trah by demanding
pay in advance.
SINGULAR Acennrsr.—Last week, says the Piedmont (Va.)
Independent, an old minor, accompanied by the dog, got
into an empty mining car to go up the incline at Hemp
shire mines. His dog, in attempting to get into the car
while in motion, fell under the car, was crushed to death,
threw the car off the track, which resulted in killing his
master. Thus died the master and his dog. The miner's
name was Johnson.

Holland, has purchased a tract of land, five miles from
Kingston, Tennessee, and three miles front Tennessee
river. One essential clement which controlled the selec

successful, it is believed that it will be the commencement
of a large emigration of the Duch to this country.

MoaALs ix Cum Ago ILL.—Chicago has beau always con
sidered a "fast" city, but recent public developments show
it to be a little too fast for its own good. Last Monday
aweek the merchants and business men wore surprised to
find that their salesmen, agents and clerks were not at
their places of business. An inquiry explained the cause.
The police had the night before made a descent upon the
various houses of ill-fame in the city, and nabbed the
"visitors" to the extent of forty or fifty. They were all

fined five dollars each and costs.
Commissioner of Patents received, several
days since, an interesting letter from Mr. 0.
H. Kelly, of Northwood, Wright county,
Minnesota Territory, dated July 16. Mr.
Kelly states that the prospects of the farmers
on the Mississippi, above the Falls of St. An
thony, were certainly rather discouraging
this season, owing to the havoc made by the
grasshoppers. lie hoped to be able to har
vest about one-half of the ground he had
planted, as everything left by the grasshop
pers looked promising, and the weather was
hot, and showers were frequent. Several
days previous to -the date of his letter, about
10 o'clock in, the,,morning, the grasshoppers
rose simultaneously for a distance of over
thirty miles on the river banks, and went into
the air., Which way they flew, or where they
now were, he knew not; he only knew that
they had started all'at once by tens of thous

A _CLERICAL HORSE-jocEur.---A few days
since a minister in Seneca Falls, N. Y.,
hired a livery horse and wagon to go a jour

Ma. Enrroat—Having frequently resolved
since my sojourn here, to scratch a few lines
for your truly interesting journal ; this Thurs
day evening, (with the heat of the sun rather
increased than diminished, and mercury at
98,) I undertake the task.
The first question to be solved is, what I
shall scribble about. Shall I speak of the
agricultural facilities of Cumberland county?
Of the towering mountains which girt it on
either side ? And of the rippling brooks
which wind their way to the wide and beau
tiful Susquehanna ? Perhaps this had bet
ter be the topic.
This county (ranking as it does, among
the first in the State,) extends from the Sus
quehanna, at Harrisburg, a south-westerly
direction to Shippensburg, a distance of near
fifty miles. On the north, the Blue moun
tain bounds its entire length, with the broken
fragments of the South mountain for its
boundary on the south, embracing an area of
near five hundred square miles, out of which
near four hundred is good tillable land.—
Within the boundary above described, lies
one of the most productive agricultural coun
ties that decorates the old Keystone of the
Arch. Yet, with all this, the people who
possess the most, seem to be the less thank
ful, for the old dutch farmers cling to their
half dollars with the tenacity of a death
grasp, seeming to build their hopes upon
what the great English poet called TRASH'.
This county not only surpasses many others
in the State, in the superior quality of its
soil, but all other requisites for living inde
pendently, and happy in proportion. Water
(pure and sparkling) gushes from almost ev
ery elevated spot. Fruit of all descriptions
grow spontaneously on every farm, which, by
the way, comes exceedingly handy.
Among the streams which flow in silent
majesty through this delightful spot of Penn
sylvania, the Conedoguinit ranks first. Hav
ing its fountain in the western portion of the
county, hard by the base of the Blue moun
tain, it commences its course, though at first
but a small brook murmuring proudly among
the pebbles, yet it gathers in strength, majes
ty, and beauty every mile, and empties into
the Susquehanna at. Fairview, two miles above
Harrisburg, being near as large as Raystown
Branch at the Juniata.
On the southern side of the county, the
not less beautiful stream, very mysteriously
named the " Yellow Breeches," winds its
course along the base of the South mountain,
forming the division line between Cumber
land and York counties.
$392,057 01
3:2'4672 99
$0 ; 414 02
This stream is very similar in size and ap
pearance to the Conedoguinit, though having
connected with its early history less song and
story. The towns, villages, and hamlets of
Cumberland county, are numerous. Carlisle,
(as you all well know,) being the county
scat, and the principal business town. It is
very neatly built, and contains from six to
eight thousand inhabitants.
The second place of note in the county, is
the beautiful town from which I write, (Me
chaniesburg,) having from fifteen hundred to
two thousand inhabitants, with three taverns
and stores and ware houses in proportion.—
At the western extremity of the town, is sit
uated the far-renowned Cumberland Valley
Institute, erected by J. A. Loose, now under
the superintendence of I. D. Rupp. May it
prosper, (as we feel assured it will under the
control of the manly form and intellectual
appearance of its present principal,) and send
out young men and women, who will act well
their part in the great drama of life. At
the eastern terminus of the town, just des
cribed, is located the " Irving Female Col
lege," -which has been lately erected for the
education of young ladies. It is under the
charge of Rev. A. B. Marlett, who (from
aught is known,) possesses all the qualities
requisite for the performance of such an im
portant task as devolves upon him. One fine
quality which he possesses to a very eminent
degree it may not be amiss to mention here,
coming under our frequent observation, viz :
politeness, in which he is almost as well skil
led as Chesterfield. The common schools of
Mechanicsburg, number four, which plainly
show that the inhabitants of the place are
making every possible effort to educate their
sons and daughters, and by so doing, prepare
them to fight the battles of life successfully.
Yours, warmly, 11. A. W.
The straight-out Americans are warm
ing up for the contest. hear how the Mil
ton. Journal, lately from the fusion ranks,
with Hazlehurst's name at its mast-head,
talks to the Americans :
"The party or faction that would intro
duce equality of the races, and make you
the associate of the negro, and bring you
down on a level with this inferior race of
unfortunate creatures ? Will you give your
votes to sustain and perpetuate Black Re
publicanism—a measure as "black as the
African himself," as iniquitous as the rank
doings of the Robesperian faction, who, had
they not been arrested in their mad career,
would not only have deluged France in
blood, but the world! Principles as dam
ning as were ever disseminated by Hume
and his coadjutors, the infamous French in
fidels ! A party at war with Bible teachings
on the slavery question ; at war with the ad
vancement and elevation of white men ;
bringing them down to the degraded level to
the descendants of Ham! Will ye serve such
a party and say I have done no harm? Will
ye recklessly throw aside your dearest, cher
ished principles and aid in giving influence
to such practices, such teachings, such rank
infidelity ?"
1547 - Never wish a thing done, but do it.
MECHANICSBURG, Aug. 13, 1857.
General Packer Speaking to the People.
We perceive that some of our cotempora
ries are exercised because General W. F.
Packer, under the instructions of Democratic
State Committee, has conceived it to be his
duty to decline the invitation of Hon. David
Wilmot, the Republican candidate for Gover
nor, to a public discussion. Some ridiculous
contrasts have been drawn in consequence of
General Packer's declension. The mere fact
that the Democratic candidate for Governor
has not deemed it proper to meet his Repub
lican opponent in joint discussion, has sug
gested to certain objectors the example set by
Governor Bigler, in his memorable canvass
es of '5l and '54, and that of Governor Wise
of Virginia, in 1854, and also the Presiden
tial campaign of 1856. If these objectors
will look carefully at the instances they have
cited, they will find that in no one case has
the proposition for joint discussion been
agreed upon by opposing candidates. Gov.
Bigler canvassed the State of Pennsylvania
alone, as did his opponent Gov. Johnson.—
Mr. Wise canvassed the State of Virginia
alone, as did his opponent, Mr. Flournoy.—
In 1856, the advocates of Republicanism took
one range of counties and the advocates of
Democracy another. But this is not all.—
Wherever opposing candidates travel and
speak together, which is customary in some
of the Southern States, personal collisions are
almost certain to follow. In the very latest
contest in Tennessee, and in several of the
districts in Kentucky, the most unhappy con
flicts ensued on account of these joint meet
ings. General Packer, advised by the Dena
ocratic State Central Committee„ has declin
ed meeting an adversary beaten beforehand.
This is all he has done. Mr. Wilmot sought
a joint meeting with nothing to lose by it.—
He placed all his hopes upon the hazard of
the die, and, if defeated in the end, would
not be more politically ruined than he was at
the beginning. The democratic candidate
does not decline meeting the people face to
face, everywhere and always. He simply
abstains from giving to his opponent an op
portunity, which, while it could not serve
any great public purpose, or advance any
great public good, might still further irritate
the minds of the people on a question which,
in the opinion of all honest men, was happily
put at rest by the result of the late Presiden
tial election.
We have already announced that General
Packer will appear before the people of the
different counties of the State, between now
and the election, and will give all his oppo
nents an opportunity of hearing what he has
to say.—. 7 he Press.
Correspondence of the N. Y. Tribune
Mrs. Cunningham's Sister.
NIAGARA FALLS, Aug. 10, 1857.
I concluded my last by promising to tell you
how Mrs. Cunningham's eldest sister, Sarah,
freed herself from her husband, and swindled
his legal heirs out of his property. That un
lucky individual had accumulated an estate of
some 525,000 or $30,000, and this it was that
induced Sarah Hempstead to inveigle him in
to matrimony. Their first visit to MiddletoWn
—a beautiful village on the bank of the Con
necticut—was not a very pleasant one, and
the second was more disagreeable still. Sar
ah and her sister Ann soon become impatierrt
under the restraint imposed by the social con
dition of Middletown, and their eccentricities
speedily excluded them -from all association
with those to whom the husband of the for
mer had introduced his wife and sister.
On the second visit, in the Autumn after
the marriage, Sarah was uneasy and discon
tented, and finally induced her husband to
dispose of his property in Middletown, and
take passage with her for New York, in a
vessel of which he was the owner. lie had
been ill for some time with a wasting sick
ness, and his mother, who had become alarm
ed at his symptoms, and his complaints of
increased suffering after taking certain med
icine which his wife was constantly adminis
tering, urgently remonstrated against his go
ing in the vessel. But Sarah, who was a
woman of strong will and determined charac
ter, overcame all resistance, arid they depar
ted together, without attendants or compan
ions of any kind except the crew of the ves
She was nearly a week reaching New York
and her husband died on the passage. Ann
had remained in Brooklin during this time,
having, it was said, certain domestic engage
ments to look after, growing out of her free
and easy mode of life, shortly after the mar
riage of her sister. In due time an heir to
the deceased husband's estate was produced,
and Sarah obtained possession of the prop
Of course, it would be impossible at this
late day, to ascertain the truth in respect to
the suspicions entertained by the mother-in
law of Sarah in connection with this transac
tion; but her impression of the guilt of the
woman amounted to actual conviction. She
persisted in charging the death of her son
upon his wife so long as she lived, and always
maintained that the child which was presen
ted to inherit her son's property was not the
offspring of her son and his wife, but the fruit
of an illicit amour, in which Ann was known
to have been engaged.
Cancelling Postage Stamps.
The Postal arrangement between the Uni
ted States and the British North America
Provinces, allows the transmission of letters,
with or without pre-paying of postage, as is
preferred. But no part payment will be rec
ognized—it goes for nothing. The postage
on a single letter is ten cents, and if three
stamps of three cents each are affixed, they
are not regarded, as full postage required on
delivering the letter. ' The practice of defac
inn- or cancellinc , stamps on such letters pre
paid in part has prevailed, perhaps, univer
sally, and consequently quite a large amount
in value of stamps, is thus lost to parties,
without any equivalent in return. A Mon
treal correspondent of the New York Herald,
very properly calls attention to the practice
of defacing the stamps under such mrcum
stances, and suggests that the Department
has no right to cancel the stamps until an
equivalent has been paid for them—that the
three stamps in the case supposed, shoUld
not be defaced, but left so that the party,
who has been inadvertently burdened with
postage by his friend, could use them. This
seems put fair,
and we are gratified to learn
that the P. 0. Department authorizes it to be
done. The Union copies the letter from the
Herald,-and adds: "Upon making inquiries
in the proper quarter in relation to the com
plaint against the Post Office Department, we
were authorized to say, that in the case men
tioned by the writer, the Post Masters would
have been justified in not cancelling the pos
tage stamps. It is only where the stamps
are taken in payment of postage, that it is
obligatory on Post Masters to use great care
to see that they arc duly cancelled. Under
the postal arrangement between the United
States and the British American provinces,
any payment of postage, less than the full
rate of ten cents, is by mutual agreement
disregarded, and the letter is treated. as un
paid. In all such cases, any stamps upon the
letter not recognized, may properly be left
uncancelled ; but in all cases where the stamps
are taken in payment of postage, they must
be defaced so that they cannot be used a
second time." -
From the Blair County Whig, July 11.
The Unfortunate McKim.
Through the kindness of the Warden of
our Jail, Mr. JOHN" MCCLURE', we visited the
above named unfortunate individual yester
day morning in his cell, and found him calm
and collected; and, apparently, perfectly re
signed to his fate. He is quite cheerful for
one in his situation. but not so much so, how
ever, as he was when we visited him two
weeks ago. He says the time appears to drag
so slowly on; and although he still persists
in his innocence of the murder of Noncnoss,
yet he acknowledges the justice of his sen
tence under the evidence, and appears to be
willing—in fact impatient—to have that sen
tence carried out. He says he has been wild
and heedless during a portion of his life, and
very fond of running after the woman, but
his hands nor his conscience have never been
stained with the blood of his fellow creature-
When we entered the hall adjoining his cell,
we found him seated at a table covered with
good books—some of them open—and he met
us with a pleasant, cheerful smile. Although
he is handcuffed and chained to the floor, the
length of the chain allows sufficient privilege
to the hall adjoining his cell. All be desires
he says, is about three hours on the scaffold,
previous to being launched into eternity, to
dyingmake a statement, which he wishes to
be published to the world. What may be
embraced in that statement we are unprepar
ed to say.
He says he has made arrangements with
his brother-in-law to have his body removed
to his home, in Delaware county, for burial
and requested us, through, this medium, to
extend an invitation to all his old friends and
acquaintances to attend his funeral from his
own residence, in Delaware county, at such
time as his friends may appoint after the
transmission of his body.
As next Friday is the day set apart for his
execution, and as he expects no clemency, he
appears to look forward to that day with feel
ings more of pleasure than of dread. May
he be well prepared for that sudden transit is
our earnest wish.
From the Elwood (Kansas) Advertiser
To the Maidens of the East.
When enumerating the inducements to
emigration, which our flourishing town of
Elwood furnishes, it little becomes us to
slight the ladies, in our addresses to capital
ists and persons seeking to better their for
tunes. We would say to the fair maids of
the older States, that here are many- young
men, of enterprise, good looks and prospec
tive wealth ; all of whom are in the matri
monial mart, seeking for some companion to
their solitary hours, some gentle, loving spir
it to watch over their moments of weariness,
and strengthen them by kind words and
sweet smiles for the rugged scenes of a fron
tier life. Who that ever lived far from the
haunts of civilized man, where no church
bell rings its welcome summons to poor mor
tals wearied with the strife and deceit of
week-day life, where the broad prairie
spreads its boundless expane, with no cabin
save your own to gladden the heart, no tree
to shelter you from the rays of a mid-day
sun, or roamed amid the huge umbrageous
forests of our Pacific coast, with naught but
the jay-bird's monotonous cry, the squirrell's
bark, or cat-bird's harsh note to break the
death-like stillness; yes, who even lay in his
rude miner hut, though the gold lay scat
tered round him, hut dreatn't of home and
longed for the cheering presence of woman,
to refresh his heart with the sun-light of
love !
Come West, ye true, warm-hearted, life
earnest maidens of the East, ye - who long
for a life of action, where the intellect and
the finest feelings of your better nature
shall not be frittered away by the cold, un
meaning, social life of the fashionable world.
Here, no scented dandy can exist, the exqui
site is unknown; such animals would die,
the air about them would prove as poisonous
as that of the Uupas tree. He, who lives
here, trusts not to the good reputation of his
sire, the wealth of his friends or the social
standing of his family, but each one carves
out, for himself, a name, be that good or
bad. Let us welcome you among us.
THRESHING BY STEASI.-A new feature in
farming operations has been introduced by
Col. Henry S Kupp, of Union township,
Berks county. A small portable pumping
engine, used on the Union Canal, has recent
ly been put in service on his farm, to drive
his threshing machine, which it does with
more regularity and speed, and at less cost,
than can be done by horse power. There
are a number of operations about a farm
where a small engine would be of great ser
vice. Such as sawing wood, lumber, rails,
&e. It may not be long before plowing and
spding will be done in the same way, and
When small locomotives will be running
through the fields in all directions. This is
an age of progress and invention—and there
is no telling what a day may bring forth.

This improved PATENT FELT makes a CHEAP, DunAntr.and
every other description of BUILDINGS, in lieu of Tin, Zinc,
Tiles, Thatch, &e..
It costs only a fraction of a Tin or Shingle Roof and is
more durable, as it neither CORRODES, CRACKS nor LEAKS.
it is made of the strongest and most durable materials,
and saturated with the best of Asphalt°.
It is made up in Rolls, 25 yards long, 32 inches wide,
and can be easily applied by any unpracticed person, with
a few tacks.
It is invaluable for LINING the WALLS of WoonEN tiousr.s,
GRANARIEL 4 , BARNS, ac., as rats or other vermin and insects
will not touch it.
IT Is Larnavtous TO WET, and being a NON-CONDUCTOR,
counteracts the heat of SUMMER and the cold of WINTER,
equalizing the temperature within every building where
it is used.
To the Agriculturist, it makes a CIIEAP and EFFECTUAL
CORN and liar Melts, also a DEFENCE for Sheep during
snow, and iu the Yard as a loose covering for Turnips and
other Fodder in Winter—the use of this FELT prows a great
annual saving to the Farmer.
It is suitable to every climate.
It is light and portable, being in Rolls, and not liable to
damage in transportation.
When used UNDER TIN or other ROOFING, it forms a
smooth body for the metal to lie tightly on, whereby the
Tin wears much longer, not corroding beneath; at the same
keeps the UPPER ROOMS COOL in Summer, and being WATER
PROOF, prevents the Roof from LEASING.
