BURGLARIES IN ALTOONA.—OH Tuesday
right, the 18th ult., the bed-room of Mr. BARR,
of the American House, was entered and $75
removed from his pantaloons pocket. On the
same night the residence of CHARLES MANN
was entered, and his, pantaloons, which were
banging near his bed, rifled of a pocket book
containing about $lO.
DARING BURGLARIES IN MIFFLINTOWN AND
PATTERSO.N.—The residences of W. W. WIL
SON and Col. A. PARKER, of Mifilintown, and
Col. Taos. BELL, of Patterson, were entered
on Friday night a week last, and all the money
to be found in tlie clothing of each, while
asleep in th - eir rooms, was taken. From the
first the burglar got about $18; from the
second, - $8 or $lO, and from the last $8 and
a ticket from Mifflin to Philadelphia.
THENEW Muur.tar LAw.—The New Bloom
field Advocate thus estimates the cost of car
rying out the new Military law. It says,
"suppose that we estimate the number of
infantry, artillery, (&c., in the State at 25,000,
and the cavalry at 5,000, (in both cases a low
estimate,) and suppose that there should lie
the full number of parades, the expenses
would be $695,000 per annum!—aad esti
mate that there are 40,000 in the State liable
to military duty, under the law, the revenue
would be only $200,000, or less than a third
of the expense. We venture to say that the
expense of carrying out this law, on an aver
age will not be less than half a million of

We learn that the military spirit is again
on the rise in this place. The Guards are to

few days. A large number of books have
already been sold, and a number purchasers
have went away satisfied with the gifts.
We learn that the crooked dam above
Williamsburg has been almost entirely-swept
away by.the high water in the Juniata. Two
or three other dams, between this and Holli
daysburg, have also been slightly injured.—
From this point, east, the canal continues in
good navigable order.
We have had a largo spell of weather
for some weeks past. At this writing, (Mon
day evening,) the prospects of a continuation
of the same spell, for several days longer,
are very encouraging.
P. S.—Tuesday morning.—We were slight
ly _disappointed in our anticipating a con
tinuation of the spell of weather, by the ap
pearance of the "sun" this morning.
Dr. WI LLIA3I BARTON M'Caum, Veterinary
Surgeon, lectured in the Court House on Fri
day and Saturday evenings of last week, on
the diseases of that noble animal, the horse.
The Doctor understands the subject upon
which he lectures, and it would be to the in
terest of all men who have anything to do
with horses, if his lectures could be more
generally heard. He is stoppingat the Fran
klin House, in this place, and all who feel in
terested would do well to give him a call.
Two daring burglaries were committed in
our town on Tuesday night of last week.—
The residence of Mr. Tilos. FLUTER was en
tered through a back window, and a valuable
gold watch and a small sum of money taken
from the room . in which he was sleeping.—
Money was also taken from the room in which
his children were sleeping, amounting, in all,
to about $l5. The clothing of Mr. FrsnEn
were found the next morning in a front par
lor. On the same night the residence of J.
P. ANDERSON was entered, and a cigar case,
containing $3O, was taken from a coat in the
room in which he was sleeping. On the next
morning the case was found in the garden,
but the money had beeu removed.
The old Doylstown Democrat has passed
into the hands of W. W. H. DAVIS, Esq., late
Secretary and acting Governor of New Mexi
co, (and son of Hon. JOHN DAVIS, lately Sur
veyor of the port of Philadelphia.) Mr. Davis
is an accomplished and educated gentleman,
and a sterling and well-tried Democrat. He
has gathered much experience and informa
tion during his career, having served in Mexi
co, with distinction, during the war, and hav
ing acted a prominent part in the civil ad
ministration of New Mexico since its acqui
sition by the United States. Qualified by his
tastes and his acquirements for the position
he has assumed, we are sure that ho will make
the Democrat a model newspaper.
The following extract from the salutatory
of Mr. DAVIS, which appears in the Democrat
of Tuesday of last week, discloses the principles
upon which he intends conducting that paper.
The sentiments he utters are the sentiments
of a vast majority of our people, and cannot
be resisted. Spoken in no factious spirit,
they will not he used for factious purposes,
or abandoned for transient or personal rea
sons. It is a fact, which this declaration of
Mr. Davis makes more manifest, that in nearly
every case the Democratic papers of Pennsyl
vania either openly denounce Lecompton, or
coldly ignore it. •
"In assuming control of the Democrat, as
the editor and proprietor, the readers have a
right to expect me to announce the course I
intend to pursue while I have charge of the
paper. Reared and educated in the Demo
cratic school, and taught the strictest tenets
of the creed, it may reasonably be expected
that I will make the paper radically Demo
cratic in all respects; and whenever the great
battles of the party are to be fought I will be
found doing service in the foremost ranks.—
Believing that I am acquainted with the great
landmarks of our political faith, which have
been handed down from the organization of
the Government, some of them being as old
as the human race, I will ever maintain and
defend them, and no consideration will induce
me to depart therefrom. But while always
Democratic, I will be, at the same time, in
dependent, and never hesitate to express an
honest opinion upon all subjects that are fair
ly open for discussion, I will even dare to
differ with my own party when I think the
party has gone astray, and deserted any of
the great principles we profess to follow; but
that difference will be tine of reason and ar
gument, and not of abuse, nor will I presume.
to read out of the party those who may see
proper to hold a different opinion. Truth
and error have been antagonistic since the
foundation of the world, and ever • will be ;
and in all contests between these rival creeds
I will firmly plant myself upon the side of
right, from which I will never retreat at the
demand of expediency or through fear of po
litical excom mun ieation.
" The practical creed of our party, and
which the Democracy of the country sanc
tions, I recognize as embodied in the Cincin
nati Platform, to which I subscribe entire
fealty, because the doctrines therein set forth
have always met the approbation of my judg
ment, and which, if properly carried out in
their true intent and meaning, must conduce
to the happiness and glory of our country.
But I am not willing that any one shall in
terpolate this platform, and introduce a plank
that not only does not belong to it, but which
is at variance with the well-established prin
ciples of our party; and I will oppose every
attempt of the kind. The doctrine recently
advocated, as set forth in the first section of
the seventh article of the Lecompton Consti
tution, that the right of property in slaves
is before and higher than any Constitutional
sanction,' is so new and strange to me and so
foreign to the Democratic creed, as we un
derstand it in Pennsylvania, that I am not
willing to give my adherence to it, but will
oppose the incorporati6n of any such heresy
into our platform. If this be true, the action
of those States which have abolished slavery
since the adoption of the Federal Constitution
must be condemned as wrong; and our fore
fathers, who founded the Government, are
directly arraigned for not understanding the
work of their own hands, and stand convicted
of violating its fundamental principles.
"In regard to the admission of new States
into the Union, which question seems to su
persede all others in importance at this time,
I feel called upon to express my views brief
ly. lam now, and always have been, a be
liever in the doctrine that governments are
instituted among men, deriving their just
powers from the consent of the governed,'
which, in more modern phrase, is known as
the doctrine of ' Popular Sovereignty.' "When
a Territory comes to form a Constitution pre
paratory to asking for admission into the
Union as a State, it is the inherent right of
the people 'to institute its foundation on such
principles, and organize its power in such
form as to them shall seem most likely to ef
fect their safety and happiness.' The peo
ple have the undoubted right, if they wish it,
to vote directly upon the adoption or rejec
tion of the Constitution formed for them by
their agents ; and any attempt to force a Con
stitution upon them against their consent and
under their protest, is a departure from the
Democratic creed, and violative of our princi
ples. In every issue of this kind the _Demo
crat will remain true to the Nebraska-Kan
sas act, which leaves the people perfectly
free to form and regulate their domestic in
stitutions in their own way, subject only to
the Constitution of the United States.' In all
discussions, I will endeavor to set the truth
plainly and fairly before .my readers, that
they may form a just estimate of the merits
of every question. I will give the National
and State Administration an honest and con

The Usury Bill Signed
The Phila. Press, of Saturday, says:—" The
news that Gov. PicKER had yesterday, at the
State capital, signed the usury bill, otherwise
called the hill 'regulating the rates of inter
est,' passel by our last Legislature, is what
we call good news, in these days of financial
stagnation. We have rarely known a mea
sure which has excited more interest in other
States, and in our own. It is the beginning
of a great reform, and will be productive of
excellent results. And now, when money is
needed by all classes, nothing is more cer
tain to call it forth than an inducement which
will render it plentiful, and accordingly,
cheap. When money becomes a commodity,
bought and sold like any other commodity,
subject only to the restrictions which expe
rience has proved to be essential, there can
be no monopoly, or extortion, or successful
shaving. It will seek its level; the capitalist
will be satisfied, and the mechanic and the
merchant assisted and protected. Governor
PACKER has placed Philadelphia and the
State under many obligations by this sanc
tion of a sound principle, and this recognition
of a sincere public opinion." The following
is a correct copy of the bill:
AN ACT Regulating the Rate of Intere9t
SECTION 1. Be it enacted by the Senate and
Rouse of Representatives of the Common
wealth of Pennsylvania in General Assembly
met, and it is hereby enacted by the authority
of the same, That the lawful rate of inter
est for the loan or use of money in all cases
where no express contract shall have been
made for a less rate, shall be six per cent.
per annum, and the first and second sections
of the act passed second March, one thousand
seven hundred and twenty-three, entitled,
"an act to reduce the interest of money from
eight to six per cent. per annum," be and the
same is hereby repealed.
SEC. 2. That when a rate of interest for
the loan or use of money exceeding that es
tablished by law shall have been reserved or
contracted for, the borrower or debtor shall
not be required to pay to the creditor the ex
cess over the legal rate, and it shall be law
ful for such borrower or debtor, at his option,
to retain and deduct such excess from the
amount of any such debt; and in all cases
where any borrower or debtor shall hereto
fore or hereafter have voluntarily paid the
whole debt or sum loaned, together with in
terest exceeding the lawful rate, no action to
recover back any such excess shall be sus
tained in any court of this Commonwealth,
unless the same shall have been commenced
within six months after the time of such pay
ment: Provided always, That nothing in
this act shall affect the holders of negotiable
paper taken bona fide in the usual course of
business. G. NELSON SMITH,

War with. England
The above is rather a startling caption in
these piping times of peace. It is, however,
not without some significance at the present
moment. It appears that Mr. John Bull, in
the wealth of his philanthropy, has a fleet,
sailing around in the vicinity of Cuba, osten
sibly on the look out for vessels engaged in
the slave trade. The old fellow has directed
his folks on the water to search every craft
that they may chance to meet, and accord
ingly, quite a long list of American merchant
men have been fired into, stopped, searched,
- and their crews insulted by drunken English
captains and reckless sailors. The longer
we live the less inclined are we to see this
country get into a war with any nation, much
less England. There are many reasons why
we should never resort to force in the case of
our old enemy. We have the Anglo-Saxon
blood in our veins, and the liberty of England
is that on which we have founded the freest
government of earth. We ought not to fight,
nor would we, if that surly old fellow would
treat us fairly. Never will that nation con
sent to our equality. _ We were rebels in
1770, and we shall continue to be such, in
her estimation, until the end of the chapter.
Still, England cannot, and she knows it well,
insult us with impunity. We are as proud
as she dare be, and she might just as well
settle down to the conclusion that the right
of search will never be acknowledged by the
American people. Our vessels are not to be
boarded indiscriminately without trouble.—
To be sure it is laudable to
.make every offort
to break up the inhuman and barbarous slave
traffic, but to put down even so great an evil
as this, is no excuse for the insolence that
our seamen have lately been subjected to.—
On this question, we are happy to say, there
is but one party in this country. The gov
ernment at Washington has been prompt to
demand immediate redress for these wrongs
and indignities, and the press and people,
with great unanimity, applaud and approve
of its acts. We disagree, with considerable
violence in regard to questions of domeAto
policy, but when we are menaced by foreign
aggressions, fortunately the mass of our popu
lation rally to a common centre of patriotism.
One thing is certain, if England proposes to
continue this searching process, she will get
herself into trouble.--Chester Co. Democrat.

THE BURIAL or GEN. PERSIEER F. SMITH-
AN IMPOSING FUNERAL.—The Pennsylvanian,
of Saturday, says:—" The remains of the dis
tinguished civilian and soldier, Gen. PERS' FER.
SMITII, were yesterday consigned to their
final resting place, at Laurel llill, with every
demonstration of honor and respect. It was
a proper tribute from Philadelphia to one of
her illustrious sons. The military display on
the occasion was large, striking, and impres
sive. The public authorities of the city united
in the last tribute. The remains arrived here
yesterday morning from Pittsburgh, under
charge of an escort of the Duquesne Grays.
The funeral took place from his brother's re
sidence in 'Walnut street.
The line of the different companies, com
prising the three brigades, was formed on
Arch street, the right resting on Fourth, after
which they proceeded down Fourth to Walnut,
and out 'Walnut to Seventh street. The re
mains of Gen. SKIT[[ were then taken along
the front of the line, after which the proces
sion moved towards Laurel 11111, passing up
Walnut street to Fourth, up Forth street to
Chestnut, up Chestnut to Thirteenth street,
up Thirteenth street to Ridge avenue, and up
Ridge avenue to Girard College, when the
military portion of the escort was dismissed,
excepting the National Guards, who proceed
ed to Laurel Hill with the remains."
The drill and discipline of political party
organization, were at one time almost abso
lute, in this country. It was only necessary
for the leaders to mark out the programme
and it was fulfilled to the very letter by the
humblest partizan in the nation. This was
when the old Whig and Democratic party ex
isted. A few men at head-quarters did the
thinking for the entire people, and it only be
came ncessary to inquire if it was Whig doc
trine or Democratic doctrine ; while the mat
ter of right or wrong was never investigated.
There were no immortality to the strict tem
perence man; in participatinc , in the drunken
orgies incident to the hard-cider campaign of
1840. Voters went the the one way or the
other, blind. Recklessness of political action
ruled the day, and whoever departed from
the path which had been marked out by pol
iticians, could scarcely expect less than mar
Although remnants- of this political barbar
ism still exists, a spirit of improvement has
been going on steadily since 1840. None but
the veriest old fogies will deny an indepen
dence of opinion, and a series of "readings
out" is the worse punishment that can be in
flicted on a man for expressing sentiments
different from those entertained by the "lead
ers." Two instances are in point. A very
large portion of the Republican party, of to
day, are ready and willing to abrogate the
platform promulgated at Philadelphia in 1856,
and adopt in its stead the principle of Popu
lar Sovereignty. These people who think
for themselves are so vastly in the ascendeut
that the minority do not dare to "road them
out, for fear of losing the whole vote." Again
a portion of the Democratic party adhere to
the doctrine laid down at Cincinnati, while
tic office-holders are disposed to annul it.—
The arrogance of a portion of these political
operators who are unwilling to accord an in
dependence of thought to members of the
same party is only equalled by their love of
It will be seen that parties existed, and
maintained their power, by the force of disci
pline, instead of acting in accordance with
the eternal principle of right. The military
sentiment of the nation was infused into po
litical parties, and it was the province of po
litical leaders to command, while it was the
only duty of the masses to obey, while think
ing was entirely out of the question. We re
peat, this condition of things is being changed.
The masses think, now, for themselves, and
generally act for themselves. The rule is be
ing immutably fixed—that to be successful
parties must do RIGHT. No pandering to this
section or that ; no party promises must be
broken. Parties, like individuals, must be
what they appear. Drill and discipline will
no longer carry through a great political
wrong. The great Democratic party of the
nation is now going through the ordeal of a
public criticism. Iler leaders have promised
that the will of the majority in Kansas should
govern, and these same leaders have refused
to make the promise good.—Wiaren, county

De. Hardman treats Consumption, Bronchitis, Asthma.
Larryngittis and all diseases of the throat and lungs, by
Medical Inhalation, lately used in the Bromton Hospital,
London. The great point in the treatment of all human
maladies, is to get at the disease in the direct manner.—
All medicines are estimated by their action upon the organ
requiring relief. This is the important fact upon which
Inhalation is based. If the stomach is diseased we take
medicine directly into the stomach. If the lungs ore dis
eased, breathe or inhale medicated vapors directly into
the lungs. Medicines are antidotes to disease and should
be applied to the very scat of disease. Inhalation is the
application of this principle to the treatment of the lungs.
for it gives us direct access to those intricate air cells. and
tubes which lie out of reach of every other means of ad
ministering medicines. The reason that Consumption,
and other diseases of the lungs. have heretofore resisted
all treatment has been because they have never been ap
proached in a direct manner by medicine. They were in
tended to act upon the lungs, and yet were applied to the
stomach. Their action was intended to be local, and yet,
they were so administered that they should only act con
stitutionally, expending their immediate and principal ac
tion upon the nnoffentling- stomach, whilst the foul ulcers
within the lungs were unmolested. Inhalation brings
the medicine in direct contact with the disease, without
the disadvantage of any violent action. Its application is
so simple, that it can be employed by the youngest infant
or feeblest invalid. It does not derange the stomach, or in
terfere in the least degree with the strength, comfort, or
business of the patient.
