Of Erie County.
Col. J. Boyd Balzer.
It is too much the custom of the office
holders of a successful party to neglect
the minority counties, in the distribu
tion 43f their favors. -very - unfair
- and impolitic; for the democracy of such
counties, with rare exceptions, is mare
disinterested and purer than any other.
They have no local offices to stimulate
their endeavors, and if no share be given
at other points, where the whole
may be considered, they,had better mo're
to Indiana and Illinois, if !rope of office
forms any part of their -political creed.
Mr. Charles. Brown, ithe former col.
lector of Philadelphia, for the `first time,
recognised the claims of Lebation coun
ty in this respect, by. the appointment of
Br. Nathaniel Ranch, as an Inspector of
the Custom House,and has entitled hire.
self to the gratitude of the democrats of
this county for that act. Dr.. Rancic,
having filled the post no doubt with
honor to himself, and satisfaction to the
government, retires at the end of his
four years, and gives place to Mr. John
H. - Shenk, of this Borough. As the tes.
simony of the democracy of the. county,.
was nearly unanimous, in favor of this
young, active and talented democrat, we
bespeak for him a favorable reception,
among the "fierce democracy" of the
city. So far as a strict attention to his
duties will permit, they will find him an
active and useful co-adjutor in support
ing "the good old cause." His charac
ter is above reproach, and we have no
doubt he will do the county credit, and
the country good service.
We did not intend at this season to
say anything about Col. Baker himself,
having intended to reserve our remarkti
upon the subject of the Presidential ttp
poi Omen ta to what a ppe *re ri tows wou ld
he' a more convenient season, hitt as we
have nothing but yea l and amen I to
say on his.. appointment, we will say
whal we have to say now. -
The only objection we have ever heard
made to him, is, that at the time of his
appointment, he was Superintendent of
the Columbia Railroad. We have al
ways in this sheet advocated the one
term principle, and rotation in office,
except where an office required peculiar
qualifications, and they were found in a
high_degree in an incumbent. But we
have•never objected to ::promotion.. On
the contrary, if - a man displays, as Col.
Baker did, - beyond all question, every
qualification, which should inark 'an
able, faithful and energetic public ser,
vans, we would press him forward in his
brilliant and useful' career, until he
reached the very top-ladder of
if capable of achieving it.'
We are opposed to keeping even a
good officer, always, in the same place,
except as we have above stated, but we
have no objection to see him occupy of
fice during his whole life, if in doing so,
he shows that, the public, not he, are the
obliged party. Almost all of our great
men have done so, and Col. Baker up to
this period of his career ihas emulated
their example. Occupying an official
position, for many years, where he was
surrounded by keen and sagacious eyes,
ready to construe the slightest indication
of mis-management, into gross delin
quency, the least unusual expenditure
into gross extravagance, and the work
of the elements into carelessness and
negligence, he passed through the try
ing ordeal ',with triumphant success.—
Few of his predecessors fulfilled their
duties with more sagacity, nor with
more energy or fidelity.
There were private reasons, honora
ble alike to Mr. Buchalfan'and Col. B
aker, which had some influence in the
selection of the latter. We do not
mean the family connection, which ex
ists between them. No man who.kpows
Mr. Buchanan, will ever suspect him of
nepotism. But, it is due alike to one
and the other to say, that the appoint
ment is fully justified by the merits of
Col. Baker, as a man and as a democrat.

Terrible and Extraorthllary
Mysterious Movements of an Atmospher
ic Body—Loss of Life and Property.
On Saturday afternoon very many of
our citizens noted the appearance of a
very remarkable formation of nebulous
or cloudy substance extended from the
heavens nearly to the earth, where it
seemed to diminish almost - to a point,
but expanding gradually as it ascended
until the peculiar form was lost in the
cloudy sky. This' remarkable and tun.
nel.like column of cloudy mist passed
over the city at about four o'clock, and
was remarked not only by its peculiar
appearance, but by a rushing, buzzing
noise, as it swept oil' in the direction of
It was watched for some moments,
and people generally believed it to be
a waterspout, as its conical' form corre
sponded with all ideas cif such natural
phenomenon. It soon passed from
sight, and was made the subject of :mor
tise conversation for the hour, without
the least just conception of what the
body consisted, or its destructive pow.
er. Its effects, however, have been
most wonderful, and may justly attract
the attention and scrutiny of the scien
The conical mass first settled to the
earth a few Minutes past four, in Deer
field, and in an instant scattered a barn
to pieces, and tore up several trees on
the opposite sitle_of the road, &c.
Mr; John Warren informs'us that he
was engaged in his garden about four
o'clpck and saw the approach of the
clo"udj ohject, se it threw up-the trees.
-Ai its course' pninted `in• the direction
of his own hduse, he rap to the dwelling,
caught two of his oldest children and
called to his wife to save the other
three and herself by following him to
the cellar. The husband had descend.
ed two or three steps with his charge,
and lie wifo, with an infant and two
derchildren had reached the cellar door,
when the house was struck. The whole
frame work was lifted from the stone
foundation ; the entire wood work above
the first floor was carried some twenty
feet and then dropped kin grand perfec
tion of ruin, whileAtre .first- floor with
the , sleepers attached, Which caught in
the foundation, was finally turned roof
like over the entire mass.
Mr. Warren, with two of the children,
remained in the cellar enclosure, with
out injury; Mrs. Warren was found on
the ground about ten feet from the cel
lar door, almost entirely stripped of her
clothing, and so severely injured about
her neck and body that she died within an
hour after the calamity, although entirely
conscious; her infant was found near by
arid almost entirely free from injury,
yet utterly destitute of clothing; a little
boy who was following his mother to
the cellar is new lying unconscious
-from the wounds be received in the
'come - ion wreck. , His recovery is very
doubtful ; an older girl escaped without
an injury. The dwelling was two sto
ries and substantially. built. In the
rear of it was a barn, distant about five
rods, which was literally shivered into
splinters. • •
Next in the due southeasterly line of '
its course -it uprooted several large
trees, scattered the fences, crossed the
road and • demolished a Urge barn be
longing to Mr. John M. Budlong.— 1
This building was of_ recent and very
substantial build, and 35 by -50 .feet up
on its base; yet the destructive element
tore it'to pieces, scattering large tim
bers about the field -at a distance of
.rem five to fifteen rods, distributing
portions of the loaf in various direc•
lions, and actually taking up an iron
cylinder threshing 'machine, weighing
perhaps four hundred pounds, and de
positing it at least eighty feet from the
barn. A cow belonging to Mr. 8.,
'standing near the barn, was killed with
out any apparent outward wound.
Beyond the premises of Mr. 8., for a•
bout a mile prostrate trees and fences
evidence the track of the. destructive
messenger. It, however, seemed to
have released its hold upon the earth
soon after leaving the lariat Of. Mr. 8.,
for it was distinctly.- seen to rise from
the surfade and dissolve -its conical
shape into a general cloudy form. The
phenomenon wes followed by violent
rain and wind. Two men at work in a
field saw the apparition approach, and
took to their heels, barely escaping its
track as it passed . - on. It seemed to
rise from the earth in four or five min
utes from the tune it was first seen, and
the evidence before us of destruction
lie in a district not over four or five
miles , in extent, in a due-southeasterly
direction from where its first touch was
feit,rand in a track about fifteen rods in
width. Whatever of material substance
presented itself iii this track was swept
away, and the ruin presented is certain•
;y fearful to behold.
Of what the destructive" -power was
composed we are riot prepared to affirm,
but of its force we can truthfully attest.
Hoge trees were torn from their deep
rooted resting places ae readily as a gar.
dener would pull a-radish from the sandy
.earth, fences and even lencia,posts were
scattered in all direction - 5, as if they
were chips, -and buildings offered no
more resistance than a clapboard to a
forty.borse power engine. The moving
mass of ruin is represented by all who
saw it to -have been a vapory substance;
it was not accompanied by any tvind or
'stem, but seemed an independent agen
cy, traveling on its own account, at a
speed of perhaps'a mile a minute... ~Itt
its motion. there-was a - constant revolu

by our citizens, was also remarked by

mca:t superior quality the farming, in a rapidly improv
ing place, into which an extensive emigration is now
pouring. The property is located in Elk county, Penn
sylvania. in the midst of a thriving population of some
10,000. The climate is perfectly Inmithy, and the terri
ble plague , of the west fever is unknown. it also has an
abundance of the best quality of Coal and Iron. The
price to buy it out is tromp to $ 2O per acre, payable by
instalments, to be located at the time of purchasing. or

for over $lOO a discount of 10 per cent.
In considering the advantages of emigrating to this lo
cality, the following are presented:
First—The mil is a rich limestone, taPatio of raising
the heaviest crops, owing to which this settlement has
attained its present great prosperity.
Second-4 tis the centre of-the great North West Coal
Basin, and 11.9 destined Soon to become one of thegreatest
business places in the State. it will supply the great

greatest in the Union.") it has five workable Trine, of
the best Bituminous Coal, amounting in the aggregate
to over - 22 feet, which makes 22,000 tons of coat under
each acre. This will - Stake the land ofinestiumble yams.

Fourth—Three railroads are laid out through this
property. The Sunbury and Erie Railroad gives us a
market for our coal to the lakes—it runs from Erie to
Philadelphia. A large part of this road has been finish
ed, and is now in running order. A heavy force is now
working from Erie towards our land in the western di
ruction, themeans for the corripletion of which has been
raised—it will soon be finished. The Allegheny Valley,
Railroad connects us with New York, Boston and Pitts
burg. The Venango Road connects us with the West.
There are already good Turnpike Roads running
through this property, various other roads have been
opened to accommodate the emigration and settlement
which has already taken place.

way, and make aiettlement whore he can live in pros.
parity and independence in a climate PERFECTLY
No case of the fever ever haring been known to occur
in this settlement. It is not like going to thabackwoods
of the West, among perhaps intolerant people, where
there is no society, churches, or schools, where the price
of land is high. and where the emigrant, after being us
ed to the healthiest climate in the world, has to endure
sickness, and pain, and perhaps ruins his health anti
that of his fatally. hut here is a thriving settlement,
having throe towns. containing churches, schools, ho
tels, stores, saw mills, grist mills, and everything desir
ed. There is a cash market at baud. The lumber trade
last your amounted to over two hundred million feet of
lumber. In a short time, owing to the coal, it will be
come still more valuable, as a number of iron works and
manufactories will soon be started; they are at present
starting them extensively at Warren. wren for those
who do not wish to go there, the payments are such that
they can easily boy a feria to save their rising families
