THE PENNSYLVANIA RAILROAD. —This
great work is steadily progressing towards

Engineer, .Mr. Miller, to the President of

pleted, to Lewistown, earns an amount
equal to live per cent, per anum 011 the
cost, although it is not vet sufficiently ad
vanced to command a large share of the
Western travel. A further section will be
opened to Waynesburgh early in the win
ter; to Huntingdon in time for next spring's
business; and to llollidnvsburg by next
summer. This will bring the road, by a
connection with the Portage, within seven
ty miles ol Pittsburg, by turnpike, and 103
miles by canal. The part of the Western
division just put under contract will extend
the roatl twenty-six miles further west

ern Pennsylvania. Of this distance, four
teen miles of the heaviest work have been
assigned to able and respectable contract

completed April Ist, 1851. The remain

in the spring, together with an additional
section of similar character in connection
with it, which will bring the road to the

Latest Foreign News,
We received on Satuiday our papers by the
Euro pa, with full details of the interesting
news from the Continent of Europe. By far
the mod important feature of this intelligence
is that which relates tothe Hungarian refugees
at Widden. They seem, even in their exde,
aurronniie' with alarming difficulties, and their
situation cannot but excite the sympathy of!he
whole civilized world. We invite attention to
the noble letter of Kossuth to Lord Halmerston,
as explaining more fully than the other extracts
which we publish die peculiarity of Iheir po
sition. We look upon them with deep concern;
for after the humiliating proposition made to
them by die Turkish ministry, by which, not
withstanding previous assurances of protection,
they were asked to renounce their religous
faith, and the declaration of the council in
favor of their extradition, we cannot look with
that confidence which we once did upon the
disposition of Turkey to maintain tiie rights of
the vanquished. Turkey is divided within her
self, and the council and ministry, with a re
finement of tyranny peculiarly Turkish, will
make die refusal of the unfortunate refugees
to become apostates to Christianity, a pretext
tor withdrawing from them their protection.
It is reported, indeed, hy travellers from the
Lower Danube, that Kossuth had yi'.lded to
the barbarous demand and iiad embraced the
Turkish faith, hut no one who reads his noble
letter can fhr a moment yie'd credence to such

Extract from Kossuth's Letter to Lord Pul
WIDDIN, (Turkey,) September JO.
i " May it please you, my lord, to allow- nie to
communicate to your Excellency a most revolt
, ing condition which tiie Turkish Government,
at the suggestion of Russia, is afiout to impose
upon us poor homeless exiles.
" I, the governor of unhappy Hungary, after
having, I believe, as a good citizen and honest
man, fulfilled to the last my duties to my coun
try, bad no choice left nie between the repose
of the grave and the inexpressible anguish of
" Many of my brethren in misfortune had
preceded me on the Turkish territory. 1 fol
lowed thither in the hope that I should be pcr
] mitted to pass to England, and there, under the
protection of ttic English people—a protection
I never yet denied to persecuted man—allowed
to repose awhile my wearied head ou the hos
i pitable shore of your happy island,
j " But even with these views, I would rather
have surrendered inv-elf to rny deadliest enemy
than to cause any difficulty to the Turkish Gov
ernment, w hose situation I well knew how to
appreciate, and therefore did not intrude on the
I urkish territories without previously inquiring
whether 1 and iny companions in misfortune
would be willingly received, and the protection
of the Sultan granted to us.
" We received the assurance that wc were
welcome guests, and should enjoy the full pro
tection of his majesty the Padisha, who would
rather sacrifice .10, Out) men of his own subjects
than allow one hair ot our heads to he injured.
" It was only upon this assurance that we
passed into Turkish territory, and according to
, the generous assurance wc were received and
tended on our journey, received in Widdin as
the Sultan's guests, and treated hospitably dur
j ing four weeks, whilst waiting Irom Constant!-
| nople further order* as to the continuation of
our *ad journey to some distant shore,
" Even the ambassadors of England and
France, to whom I ventured in the name of hu
| inanity to appeal, were so kind as to assure rnc
. of their full sympathy.
"His Majesty the Sultan was also so gra
cious as to give a decided negative to the inhu
j man pretensions of our extradition demanded
by Russia and Austria.
" But a fresh letter from his Majesty the Czar
arrived in Constantinople, and its consequence
was the suggestion sent to us by an express
messenger oi the Turkish government, that the
; Poles and Hungarians, and particularly myself,
Count Casimer Bathiany, Minister of Foreign
j Affairs ol Hungary under rny government, and
the Generals Me snares and Perczel, (all present
here ) would be surrendered, unlc-s we chose
to abjure the faith of our forefathers in the re.
, ligiou oi Christ :uid become Mussulmans. And
thus five thousand Christians are placed in the
terrible alternative either of facing the scaffold I
or of purchasing their lives by abandoning their
faith. So low is already fallen the once mighty '
Turkey that she can devise no other means to
answer or evade the demands of Russia.
" Words fail me to qualify these astonishing
snggestions, such as never have been made yet
to the fallen chief of a generous nation, and
could hardly have been expected in the 19th '
" My answer does not admit of hesitation.
Between death and shame the choice can be
neither dubious or difficult. Governor of Hun
gary, and elected to that high place by the con
fidence of fifteen millions of my countrymen, I
know w ell what I owe to the honor of my coun
try, even in exile. Even as a private individual
1 have an honorable path to pursue. Once the
Governor of a generous country—l leave no
heritage to my children —they shall at least
bear an unsullied name. God's w ill be clone.
! am prepared to die ; but as 1 think this mea
sure dishonorable and injurious to Turkey,
whose interest 1 sincerely have at heart, and as
I feci it a duty to save my companions in exile,
if f can, from a degrading alternative, I have
replied to the Grand Vizier in a conciliatory
manner, and took also the liberty to apply to
Sir Stratford Canning and General Aupich for
their generous aid against this tyrannic act. In
full reliance on the noble sentiments and gener
ous principles of your Excellency, by which, as
well as through your wisdom, you have secured
the esteem of the civilized world, i trust to be
excused in inclosing copies of my two letters to
the Grand Vizier and Sir Stratford Canning.
" 1 am informed that the whole matter is a
cabal against the ministry of Reschid Pacha,
w hose enemies would wish to force him to our
extradition in order to lower it in public esti
mation, and render impossible its continuance
in office. It is certain that the grand council
held on the 9th and 10th of September, after a
tumultuous debate, the majority of the council
declared in favor of our extradition, the major
ity of the ministry against it. No decision was
come to, in consequence of the altercation
which took place; but, notwithstanding, the
ministry thought fit to make u.> the revolting
suggestion 1 have named.
"This mode of solving the difficulty would
not, 1 am convinced, save the ministry, because
a protection only given, in contradiction of the
Sultan's generous feeling, at the price of five
thousand Christians abandoning tbeir faith,
would be revolting to the whole Christian
world, and prove hardly calculated to win sym
pathies for Turkey in the event of a war with
Russia, which, in the opinion of the most ex
perienced Turkish statesmen, is approaching
"As to my native country, Turkey does, I
believ-e, already feel the loss of the neglected
opportunity of having given to Hungary at least
some moral help to enable it to check the ad
vance of the common enemy. But it appears
to trie that it would be a very ill-advised mode
of gaining Hungarian sympathy by sending me
to an Austrian scaffold, and forcing rny unhap
py companions to abjure their religion or ac
cept the same alternative.
".No friends to the Turkish government
would spring up front my blood shed by her
broken faith, but many deadly foes. My lord,
your heart will, I am sure, excuse my having
called your attention to our unhappy fate, since
it has now assumed political importance. A
bandoned in this unsocial land by the whole
world, even the first duties of humanity give us
no promise of protection unless, my lord, you
and your generous nation come forward to pro
" What step* it may be expedient that vou
should lake—what we have a right to expect
from the well-known generosity of England—it
would be hardly fitting for n.e to enter on. 1
place my own and my companions' fate in your
hands, rny lord, and in the name of humanity
throw myself under the protection of England.
" Time presses—our doom may in a few days
be sealed. Allow me to make an humble per
sonal request. 1 am a man, my lord, prepared
to face the worst; arid I can die with a free
look at Heaven, as 1 have lived. But lam also,
my lord, a husband, son, and father; my pour,
true-hearted wife, my children, and my uobie
old mother, are wandering about Hungary.—
They will probably soon fall into the bands of
those Austrians who delight rn torturing even
feeble women, and with whom the innocence
of childhood is no protection against persecu
tions. 1 conjure your Excellency, in the. name
of the Most High, to put a stop to these cruel
ties by your powerful mediation, and especially
to accord to my wife and children an asylum
on the soil of the generous English people.
" As to my poor, niy loved, and noble coun- :
try, must she, too, perish forever r Shall she,
unaided, abandoned to her fate, and unavenged,
he doomed to annihilation by her tyrants ? Will
England, once her hope, not become her conso
"The political interests of civilized Europe,
so many weighty considerations respecting Eng
land herself, and chiefly the maintenance of the
Ottoman Empire, are too intimately hound up
with the existence of Hungary for me to lose all
hope. My lord, may God the Almighty for
many years shield you, that you may long pro
tect the unfortunate, and live to be the guardian
of the rights of freedom and humanity. 1 sub

NEW COUNTERFEIT.— We learn from the
Lancaster Tribune that Counterfeit Five Doliar
bills on the Harrisburg Bank ere in circulation
in that vicinity. They are of Letter A, and
of various dates. The signature of Thomas
Elder, the President, is pretty well imitated (
but that of J. W. Wier, the Cashier, is poorly
executed. Tire engraving of the whole note
is very coarsely done, and not at all calculated
to deceive any one who has the least judge
ment in such matters.
Counterfeit Threes on the Beividere Bank
, are now in circulation ; the filling up is rather !
smooth'y done, but the bungling manner in
which the name of the bank in the body ot the
bill is in-erted, will readily detect the coun
terfeit. The vignette of the counterfeit rep
resents shipping, steamboat, in the harbor
and is entirely ditlerenl from the genuine.
The words " State of New Jersey," on the
right hand end is also very clumsily inserted.

late, ami it seems likely they will not diminish.
Our own farmers deliver freely, but by no
i means in excess, while demand is confined to
the supply of the current consumption.
There ore occasional arrivals of French
Flour. The weather is very favorable for au
tumn field work, the getting up and housing of
turnips, potatoes, &c. The potato rot goes on,
uot perhaps rapidly, but we fear surely.
