Delaware City Bank,
We noticed, some weeks since, in terms
ct comdetnnation that this institution had
an unusual number of notes in circulation
■along the Juniata, and also the attack
caade upon it by a New Jersey paper,
(since fully retracted) in which it was rep
resented as a swindling concern, likely to
tail at some moment roost convenient to '•
those interested. In our advertising eol
urns of to-day will be found a card from a
number of gentlemen owning nine-tenths
oi the stock, who arc represented to us as
men ol wealth, arid who are individually
liable for all its issues. Undf r the head of
Markets, Money Matters, will also be
be found an extract of a letter from a gen
tleman in Philadelphia to another in this
county, which gives sundry reasons wiiy
the notes issued I>\ this institution should
be entitled to favor at the hands of the
public, and ascribes hostility to it on the
p...t of others. We leave our readers
to form their own deductions respecting
these statements, vouching only that they
come from a source entitled to full credit.
We should rather, for our part, that the
notes of all foreign banks under five dol
lars fhuuld be excluded from circulation,
and our own relief notes or gold and silver
substituted in their place, as the present
circulation is composed of a heteroge
nous mass from which it is difficult to sep
arate the good from the bad.
HCCTIXI OF fOY CRESS.
The " long session"' of the XXXlst j
Congress will commence in one week from
next Monday. From a list of members
published in the New Vork Tribune,
classed according to their known political
; feelings, parties will stand 112 Whigs and
lib Locofocos, without including Messrs.
Allen of Massachusetts, and Giddings and
' Root of Ohio, about whom there are doubts
as to which way they will lean. The
first work of the session, says the Reading
1 Journal, will be to elect a Speaker, ft is
! generally conceded that Mr, Winthrop of
■ Massachusetts —the Speaker ot the last
ffous< —w ho has " won golden opinions
j from all sorts of people*' by his ability,
courtesy, and impartiality, will again be
the Whig Candidate. Thus far at least
we have seen no other one named for the :
office on the Whig side. The candidates !
of LoeofoeoDm are '• Legion" embracing
every variety and shade of opinion in the
pie-bald ranks of " Democracy," whose
only common tie now is. in the language
of the Washington Fnion, to "oppose the
Administration to the bitter end." The
ultra Slavery Locofocos, it is presumed,
will not go for a " Free Soil Democrat,"
and the " Free Soilers" dare not support
one of the Calhoun stamp. Mr. Cobb of
Georgia is the most prominent nominee of
the Locofocos, but even he, we are told,
is embarrassed with certain sins of omis
sion and commission which would seem
to preclude the probability of his election.
He omitted to sign the Calhoun address—
the test of Southern fidelity—and there
fore is not acceptable to the South Caroli
na delegation. On the other hand, he op
posed the anti-slavery proviso in all its
stages ami forms, and therefore cannot be
acceptable to Mr. Wilmot and the North
ern members, who profess to regard tin
support of that principle as a preliminary
requisite for their favor. These same dif
ficulties apply to almost every other pro
minent aspirant in the party, and would
embarrass an election, even with an ascer
tained and decided majority.
It is very probable that the "mixed up"
complexion of the House will prevent an
organization for some days, and very much
impede the progress of the legitimate bus
iness of the Session. In the Senate where
the Loeofoeo majority is decided, the op
position w ill no doubt try to " head" the
administration by r<jeciuuf us nominees to
office, liLit " Uld Zack ha* been in a
good many tight places rs tore now, and
came out of all of them in fiving colors,
and so it will be again. His motto is
•• never to surrender," and it is only when
most pressed that he is found most dan
gerous to his enemies.
Hy the way, it is now pretty generally
admitted that the forthcoming Mess: ore of
the President, ami Report from the Trea- \
sury department, will recommend a fhor- '
ough change of the existing Tariff of 18-10
from ad valorem to specific duties—if it i
does not go farther and urge its repeal al
together. This is precisely what the
Whigs were taught to hope and believe. :
Indeed, so far as the policy of this admin
istration has her u developed, it ha*- Is <ri
found orthodox on all tin hading Wing
measures. Those who voted for Taylor
and axaiu.it Free Trade are not doomed
to be cheated as were the supporters of
•• Polk, Dallas and the Tariff of 1842," in
the memorable campaign of 'lf. Old
Zack promised nothing and i willing to
concede ail his friends ask—Polk was
made to promise everything through King
Kane letters and unscrupulous stump ora
tors and partisan newspapers, but when it
: came to the test, it was soon found that
he meant to perform nothing.
THE RKM*LT of the election in New
York his been a singular one. In all the
State officers there is an equal division be
tween the two parties. Tin: following are
elected : Whig a —Controller, Washing
ton Hunt; Secretary of State, Christopher
Morgan; Treasurer, Alvah Hunt; State
Hngineer, HczekiahC. Seymor—total, I.
Locos —Judge Court of Appeals, Freeborn
G. Jewett ; Attorney General, Levi S.
: Chatheld ; Canal Commissioner, Freder
, ick Follet; State Prison Inspector, Darius
('lark—total 4. Judges of the Supreme
I Court—Whigs—William .Mitchell, Daniel
Cady, i homas A. Johnson, James C.
I Hoyt; Locos —John W, Brown, Henry
Hogeboom, Frederick W. Hubbard, Win.
Irt the Senate the whigs have two ma
jority—and in the House the locofocos
have two—making a tie on joint ballot.
The whigs however have the best State
offices, those elected being members of the
canal board, which gives them the control
ot the public works.

The laws against intoxication arc en
forced with great rigor in Sweden. Who
ever is seen drunk, is fined—for the first
offence, three dollars ; for the second, six ;
for tin third and fourth a stdi further sum ;
and is also deprived of the right of voting
at elections, anil of being appointed a rep
resentative. He is, besides, publicly ex
posed in the parish Church on the follow
ing Sunday. If the same individual i<
found committing the same offence a fifth
time, he is shut up in the house ol correc
tion. and condemned to six months hard
labor ; if he is again guilty, to a twelve
months' punishment of a similar descrip
tion. If the offence has been committed
in public, such as at a fair, an auction, etc.,
the fine is doubled; and it the offender
has made his appearance at a church, the
; punishment is still more severe. YVhoev
! cr is convicted of having induced another
, to intoxicate himself is fined three dollars,
i which -,uin is doubled if the person is a
minor. An ecclesiastic who falls into this
offence loses his benefice ; if he. is a lay
j man who occupies any considerable post,
his functions are suspended, and perhaps
Ihe is dismissed. Drunkenness is never
j admitted as an excuse for at v crime ; and
! vvhot v r dies when drunk is buried igno
i inintously, and deprived of the prayers of
the church. It is forbidden to give and
; more explicitly to sell, any spirituous li
quors to students, work men, servants, aj
' prentices, or private soldiers. Whoever
j is observed drunk in the streets or making
! a noise in a tavern, is sure to be taken to
| prison and detained till sober; without,
however, being on that account exempted
j from the fines. (Ine half of these lines go
| to the informers (who are generaliv police
I officers,) tin- other half to the poor. If
! the delinquent has no money, he is kept in
prison until some one pays for hi in, or un
til he has worked out his enlargement.
Twice a year these ordinances are read
aloud from the pulpit hy the clergy ; and
; every tavern keepur is hound, under a
| penalty of a heavy line, to have a copy of
them hung up in the principal rooms of
; his house.
i These Swedish laws are far in advance
of those of any other nation. If Great
I Britain would enact the like she would he
j much happier in every respect, and we
1 might well take the example ourselves.

THE ST. LOUIS TRAGEDY. —The fol
lowing particulars relative to the shooting
affair which recently took place at the
City Hotel, St. Louis, noticed in the Ga- •
zette two weeks since, we copy from the ;
Republican of that city :
The perpetrators of this outrage are men aged
about twenty-eight and twenty-six years. At
the time of their arrest they were perfectly so
her, the eldest laboring under some little ex
citement, in consequence of his acts They
were travelling in fine style, being provided
with large wardrobes, and every necessary tot
comfort and amusement. Their trunks were
searched yesterday evening, and found to con
tain nothing but gentlemen s paraphernalia, and ■
§1155 in gold, in two separate bags. _ _ j
* They claim to be a family of some distinction
in France, the eldest of the two bearing the title j
of Count. The younger states that their father
was killed in Paris In the outbreak of February
last, and in consequence of their connexion
with the events of that period, and opposition to
the Republican Government, they were com
pelled to (lee the country. They arrived in the
United States in June last, since which time
they have been leisurely wending their way
west, with a view ol seeing the country and
spending most of their tune m hunting, a sport
for which thev manifest great fondness, and for
which they are amply provided with the proper
accoutrements. The younger of the two states
that his brother has several times, recently, dis
played symptoms of insanity, nrid but a few
evenings since, while they were in the town of
Alton, made a demonstration to attack some
person, hut was timely prevented by his inter
ference. The elder brother appears to be sen
sible of his having done wrong, exculpates tne
younger brother from all blame, and claims that
he alone should be made to suffer for the conse
quences of his acts. He states that a powerful
feeling, which he could not resist, took posses
sion of him, and told him that he must kill two
men; that while iaboring under this feeling he
seized a double barreled gun and rushed from
the room, and tired at the first two men he saw ;
his brother followed for the purpose of prevent
ing him from doing injury, but before bis inter
ference could be exercised, the fatal deed was
Dreadful Steamboat Kxploslon.
NEW ORLEANS, NOV. 16.
A dreadful steamboat explosion took place
here last evening, which from its disastrous
consequences ha? cast a melancholy gloom
over our city.
While the capacious steamer Louisiana,
bound for St. Louis, was about starting lioen
her wharf, just as the wheels began to move,
both her immense boilers exploded with a
tearful and terrible noise, shattering the boat
almost to atoms The s'eamers Storm and
Bostona were lying alongv.de of her at the
tune, both of which were also greatly damaged
by the concussion.
Al the tune 1 write ibis despatch, hundreds
of people are around the scene of destruction,
md already fifty dead bodies have been taken
from the w reck, it is supposed that one hun
dred and sixty liveu, i! not more, have been
lost by tins fearful ca'ainity, besides many bad
ly and others mortally wounded. The levee
is now literally strewn with the dead and dy
ing. It is truly a heart-rending i cene. Legs,

Far the Gazette
Ms Kruroa—l observed an article in the Ga
zette ot last week noticing a work on Mensura
j tion, by .Mr. Almon Ticknor, which has just
been published. A copy of it was placed in my
hands by trie publisher, and alter having given
it a thorough and careful examination, I have
r no hesitation in recommending it to the atten
tion of teachers and schoal directors.
The introduction of Mensuration into the
common schools of this country is engaging the
attention of the people of our large cities, and
it is but right that we should awake to the im
portance of instructing our children in so impor
tant a branch. The work of Mr. Ticknor is
simplified, and can be taught with ease in
schools where the other branches are taught,
without taking up too much of the teacher's
time. It is prepared to instruct the masses—
those who purpose becoming the active busi
ness men of the country, and who will not re
ceive instruction from the works before the
! community, as they are too abstruse and too
difficult to teach, except in schools where there
is a professor of Mathematics. All teachers
admit this, consequently it is not taught in any
of the common schools, excepting the High
Schools, which, however, but a small propor
tion of the children educated in the common
j schools ever enter.
lu this work all that is difficult without being
of much use is excluded, which is certainly an
' excellent feature in it; and for the trash found
in all works of the kind, sueh matter substituted

FRANCE.* —The French Ministry has
been dismissed, and the President has sent
a message to the Assembly, the reading of
which created a great excitement among
the members, and the citizens of Paris
generally. It seems that the whole of the
ministry, with the exception of M. Odil
lon Barrot, who was ill, assembled on the
morning of the 30th, to advise the Presi
dent respecting the appointment of a suc
cessor to M. Falioux, the retiring minister.
At this meeting, Louis Napoleon em
phatically declared tha! the Cabinet warn
ed dignity—an imputation sufficiently an
noying to raise the anger of less sensi
tive personages than those who form the
Executive of Republican France.
'l'he President added, that the Cabinet
had been too subservient to the Conserva
tive majority of the Assembly, and that
the Club of the Councd of State did what
he himself could not do—settled the poli
cy of the Government, and actually nomi
nated the Ministry. This was enough,
and an explosion instantly followed.
In the evening, M. Dupin read to the
Assembly a message from the President,
which is very spirited and interesting, for
it can hardly fail to provoke angry pas
sions, and it may probably produce the
co'tp d'etat which has been long foresha
The London Times says, if this is a
clear and definite signification to the sweep
ing measure by which the President of the
French Republic has changed his whole
adminisiration, and the resolute message
in which he announced the species of coup
d'etat to the National Assembly, we must
suppose that Louis Napoleon intends to
convey to France and the world his per
emptory intention to assume in his own
person the supreme direction of the affairs
of the Repnblic.

AUSTRIA AND HUNGARY. —The fiends,
who are nicknamed Rulers in Austria, not
satisfied with the human gore thev have
already shed, still continued their sanguin
ary career. Several additional murders
have been added to their already fearful
acts. Their victims who have been stran
gled in Pesth, or shot, are all men of mark,

nau has been appointed Civil and Military
' Governor of Hungary, crimes at which
humanity shudders, at once arise before
the mind at the mention of his name.

another crisis in that country is believed
to be inevitable. The Hungarian officials
are sending in their resignations in masses.
