We have seen, says tfie Baltimore American,
a late letter from London, which mentions a
sale of sixteen thousand tons of Railroad Iron,
for the United States, at s i. 2t. till, per ton—an
aggregate cost of about half a million of dollars,
j Delivered in this country it will cost about $3B
to $4O per ton. The road for which it has been
bought is not named.
We hope some of the advocates of free trade
in this county will calculate how many men
would have been employed, anil what quantity j
of produce they and their families would have
j consumed, had these SIXTEEN THOI SAND
TONS been manufactured here, at fair rates
I for labor, instead of being made by the pauper
labor of England. Such is one of the effects of
a free trade tariff, and the above one instance
out of a hundred in which railroad companies
have resorted to Europe for Iron rails, simply
because a locofoco tariff admits them at a duty >
ruinous to ll.e American laborer. "Buy cheap" •

THE PHILADELPHIA SlN. —The editor of the
i Philadelphia Sun, who is an office-holder in the
i custom house, thinks that there ought to be a
I new pa|>ei established at Harrisburg to give a
more effectual support to the administrations of
i the National and State Governments, and talks
as if the whigs were ready to fall in with such
an absurd scheme. The Telegraph is now one
of the best conducted papers in the State, and
it. as well as the Intelligencer, gives entire sat
isfaction to the wings of the interior. The Sun
man, we think, had better establish a paper for
those with whom he allied himself at the late
election, namely, some of the most bitter oppo
i nents of Gen. Taylor and Governor Johnston
j that can be found in the city of Philadelphia.
! As for the whigs, they neither want trie aid nor
advice of such political trimmers.
The editor of the Ledger, it would appear
from the following paragraph, is turning Ma
homedan. Speaking of a probable war in Eu
rope. he says :
Such a war would bring a new element into '
the politic* of Europe, in aid of liberal institu
tions. Mahoinedanism, which is now progres
sive, and has always been highly favorable to i
social morals, as appears in the superior hones
ty. sobriety, charity and piety of all Mahome
dan communities, would aid toleration against
the corruption of the Roman and the rapacity
of the Greek churches. Mahomedanism, which
recognises the Old and New Testaments with
the Koran, is like Judaism, strictly monotheic,
eminently democratic in tendency, and there
fore the high road to liberal Christianity. This
may startle the partisans of Church aiul Stale ;
but it is true.
Being "highly favorable to social morals ," j
must mean the allowance of four wives and as
many concubines as a man can support, which j
the Koran grants , and " democratic in tenden- I
cy" an absolute despotism, which strikes ofi
heads at the nod of a Sultan or Pasha, and bas
tinadoes every poor devil who is brought before
a magistrate, whether guilty or not. If such a 1
religion is highly favorable to social morals
and democratic in tendency, wc commend it to
the respectful consideration of our locofoco !

WASHINGTON COUNT T HINT.— The IVashing
ton Reporter of the 17th inst. states that a num
ber of citizens of that county recently organized
for the purpose of a grand hunt, dividing into
two parties, one under Capt. Bausman of the
Reporter, and the other under Captain Biyson.
It was agreed that Ihc party beaten should pay
for a supper for the whole. The game counted
—and by the terms of the agreement, none was
to be received after 9 o'clock—was, by Captain
Bryson's party 1/273, arid by Captain Bailsman's
1,0ti7, giving Capt. Bryson a majority of 20G.
But 20 minutes after nine Capt. Bausman ar
rived with 455 pieces, which, could they have
been counted, would have given him a majority
of 249. The Reporter says :
This was certainly the greatest hunt that has
ever taken place in this country, and excited
intense interest in both town and country. The
whole amount of the different kinds of game
killed, as counted by the Committee, was :
Squirrels, 1,593; Partridges, 21; Pigeons, 15;
Hawks, 5 ; Owls, 6; Crows, 5 ; Coons, 2G; Phea
sants, 19; Ground-hogs, 4; Ducks, 2; Opos
sums, 134; Rabbits, 23—making a total of 2,340.
Add to this Captain Bailsman's excluded game,
455, and we have a grand total of 2,795. In the
excluded game of Captain Bausman, there were
316 squirrels, 9 Coons, 12 Opossums, 4 Phea
sants, 2 Rabbits, with sundry other game.
INTERESTING FROM THE CAMANCHES.—YY'E
learn from the National Intelligencer that ac
counts have heen received at the YY'ar Depart
ment respecting an important National Council
recently held by the Catnanche Indians. The
council lasted ten days, and its object was to
elect a new chief to rule the nation, in place of
the one recently deceased. The individnal
chosen glories in the the name of Buffalo Hump.
On being installed into ollice, after the Indian
fashion, he addressed the council, saying that
lus people had formerly made war upon Texas
when it was " feeble and alone," and had gained
nothing; and he gave it as his opinion that if
they now continued to make war upon Texas
since it had become apart of the United States,
the result would be their utter destruction as a
nation. He also expresied his determintion to
do all in his power to put a stop to the thieving
depredations which had been committed by a
portion of his people against the white inhabi
tants. and expressed a hope that his efforts
would be successful. The prominent members
of the council having agreed to the advice of
Buffalo Hump , two subordinate chiefs were ap
pointed to communicate in person the result of
the council to Capt. Steele, of the 2d dragoons,
at Fredericksburgh, by whom a report was
made to Gen. Brooke, commanding in Texas,
who forwarded it to the YY'ar Department.
OREGON. — A correspondent of the New York
Courier, who is in California, gives the follow
ing account of Oregon.
1 met a gentleman a day or so since, just down
from Oregon, and was greatly interested to
learn from a practical man of observation, facts
connected with that country. Timber in great
variety, he says, inay be seen, and much of it
six to ten feet in diameter, 250 to 3UO feet high,
and free from knots. In illustration, he said, he
*aw one mill, recently erected, with two saws,
that were cutting GOOO feet of lumber per day,
the mill being operated by water by a stream
from a lake three miles distant, into which
lake the timber was felled, and floated thence
direct to the mill, sawed, and turned out the
other end, to where a vessel was ready to re
ceive it and sail for market.
Oregon, is without doubt the greatest iumber
country in the world. By an estimate made,
with some care, there arc standing within a
circle of three miles around this null, timber
enough to last one hundred years and cutting
GOOO feet per day.
As for the wheat of that country, Mr. N.
tells me G5 lbs. to tiie bushel was the ordinary
weight, and the handsomest he had ever seen.
This satisfactorily accounts to me for what,
when 1 first was at the mines, seemed a strange
preference on the part of the Oregonians—their
giving $5 a $8 per barrel more for flour from
Oregon than any other. The cattle said Mr.
N., are unequalled ; for oxen, brought from the
States, will improve so in one year as hardly to
be known by their former owners.
A Califor man's Experience.
The following is extracted from a private let
ter, written to the New Orleans Bulletin, by
one who made the trip in one hundred days by
the ('orpus Christi route. After giving an amus
ing account of his adventures and a description
of San Francisco, he ssvs :
" A small 1G x 38 weather-boarded house,
rough inside and out, has cost $28,000, and
rents for $2OllO a year, payable in advance.
Building lots are worth from $4OOO to SIO,OOO.
I pity the poor devils who have bought and
buiit at these prices, for in six months they w ill
not he able to realize one-tenth of their outlay.
Those who have eonse out with goods are bound
to lose money. Goods have been shipped from
all the Pacific ports, which can always supply
the country witii the required provisions. [Our
friend here gives the story of his travel to the
diggins, and then says:] The gold is not on
the surface, as has been represented, but you
have to dig deep for it, tear up the solid rock,
work in the water, and then it is all luck wheth
er you get much or none. The work is of the
hardest kind, and after trying it, 1 may candidly
say, that I would rather drive a dray or roll
boxes on the I.cvce, than follow it up. To all
who purpose coming out. 1 would advise them
first to begin at daylight and carry kegs of nails,
boxes of tin, or any other heavy packages. From
the sidewalk of any street HI New Orleans car
ry them into the store and pile them up, do not
| stop for breakfast, or lunch or liquor ; at noon
stop an hour and cat a small piece of salt pork
and a ship's biscuit, and then work until sun
down, and see how you feel If you can then
:■ find a comfortable night's sleep on the ground,
under a tree, with a single blanket and a million
, ants running over you, and enjoy all this, you
can then come out to California and live six
months, and be able to save with good luck at
: digging, from $3OO to $15,000. It is all in the
luck, for where there is one who has made
•45000 or $lO,OOO, there are 500 who have not
$5OO, and all doing the same labor. There is
, no doubt that California is one vast gold mine,
lint it requites much hard labor to get it out.
Five years hence, when labor can be hired,
' regular mining companies w ill realize fortunes."
The letter concludes by saying, that if the
church get* as many repentant sinners within
the year, a* there arc repentant miners at the
"diggins," her population and prosperity will
he enormously increased.

COMPLETION OF TRISUSPENSION BRIDGE
The grand Wire Suspension Bridge across
the Ohio was completed to-day, and Mr. EHet,
the distinguished architect, rode across it for
the first time. The experiment proved emi
nently successful. A large concourse ot per
sons was assembled upon each side of the riv
er to see the apparently hazardous feat. When
the intrepid and daring projector and buiider
started iiia horse and buggy upon the noble
span, he was saluted by the firing of cannon
and loud cheers from the adiriring multitude.
The animal attached to the vehicle progres
sed steadily, and Mr. Ellet gained the opposite
shore in triumph, where he was again greeted
with loud huzzas.

THE Two WANTS IN CALIFORNIA. — A letter
From San Francisco says:—"At present, (as
the common saying here is,) there are two things
really in demand, viz : women and lumber, the
former being exceedingly rare, and the latter
bringing from $250 to $4OO per thousand feet."

whether in the head or feel, whether it be in the hack or

The quantity of impure humors discharged from the
' bod) bv the action of the Brnndreth's Pills, is replaced in
the course of a few hours with new and pure blood, by
the digestion of a moderate meal. By purging the body
with this medicine the whole mass of blood becomes en
tirely purified and regenerated.
That the blood is the life of the body, I presume is un
disputed, therefore I shall say that it being the SEAT or
i Li FE, it must also be the seat of disease. If disease be in
| the blood, we should abstract the disease only, not the
' blood. It is the impurities which must be removed by
■ purgation to secure our health, in all states of the weatner,
• in all situations, and in all climates. The blood, like a
good spirit, is always trying to benefit the body by its
struggles to exp< I impurities. But it is not capable to ef
fect its own purification at all tiuies : to do ibis it must
often have assistance. When the blood is loaded with im
purities, especially in this climate, the consequences may
be fatal, provided the blood i not purified at once, and
this is sure to be e dec ted if Ltrandreth'a Pills are used.

Delaware Oily Bank.
We published in our last a paragraph from a
New Jersey paper relative to this inrntitution,
which threw out strong doubts as to its solvcn
, cy. Since then a card hits appeared in the city
papers signed by Geo. Maxwell, Andrew C.
Barclay, John M. Kennedy, A. J. Derbyshire,
Win. M. Kennedy, Joseph Cleaver, Philip Rey
bold, John C. Clark, and Geo. G. Cleaver, who
aver that they are owners of nine-tenths ofthe
stock, fully acquainted with the issues and assets
of the bank, and bind themselves that the notes
will be paid in gold and silver on presentation.
The signers we know are considered men of
wealth, and the Bank may be as solvent as re
presented, but the mere fact stated that nine
individuals own nine-tenths of the stock, does
not speak very strongly in its favor, as these
nine persons can of course control the loans,
Ac. without check or hindrance ; and where
temptation exists in speculating times, it is
sometimes difficult for the best of men to let
well enough alone. At all events there is too
1 much of this inoncy in the valley ofthe Juniata
| —certainly from $50,000 to *loo,ooo and if
j the bank desires to sustain an unsullied reputa
tion, it, or its agents, will do well by sending
. less of its issues this way hereafter.
Ihe notes arc par in the city, and since the

first settlers. She made a profession of religion
in early life, and was for at least fifty years a
communicant in the Presbyterian church. Of
her eleven children ten survive, of whom seven
were gathered around hr dying bed. Mrs
Bell was a kind mother, an obliging neighbor,
and a cheerful christian. She loved God s ord
inances, the preached word, and the social
prayer meeting. During her last illoess she
was not disposed to converse much, owingto
extreme sickness, but she felt the Saviour pre
cious to her, and expressed her abiding confi
dence in the Redeemer. Her friends sorrow
not as those who have, no hope. To depart and
be with the Lord is far better.
