TOE FoLLownio ANNCDOTE connected with
the decisive battle of the 9th is too good to be
o mitted :
.. The battle commenced by heavy cannons-

his Tines, accosted Capt. May. of the . 2d dra•
goo ns, and told him—" Your regiment has
never done anything yet—you must take that
b att ery." He said nothing. but turned to the
co mmand and said we must take that bat
tery--fullow !" He made a charge with three ,
companies—at least with the remainder or three
companies--supportedpby the sth and Bth
regiments of infantry. They cleared the breast
work, rode over the battery, wheeled and
came through the enemy's line, whilst the fire
of the infantry was so deadly in its effects as
t o carry all before it. Captain May made a cut
at un officer as he charged through; on his
return he found him standing between the
wheels of a cannon, fighting like a hero. He
was asked if he was an officer t Capt. Maw
answered him in the affirmative. when he
presented his sword, remarking—" You re

saying, Arise find the Philosopher's stone, which will
enable the richest state in the Union to inscribe on her
banners, Psy as you 6. In spite of the sneers of the
Edropeans, now is the time to let them know that
Pennsylvania is able to pay her debts, and raise twerp
ty millions to defend her just rights.
To the Commissioners mud Treasurer or the
eounty of Bradford
Gerretzwirm :—Although the subject was pressed up
on the attention of the Legislature yet it omitted to pro
vide any additional revenue for the current year. ,dye
must therefore rely on the previous enactments.
The loss to the commonwealth occasioned by the in
jury done to the public works, approximate $300,000,
and this falls exclusively on that part of the semi-annual
interest due in August nett. We must endeavor to
make up this unexpected deficiency by the most prompt
and vigorous use of the means that are left us. The
increased tonnage during the entire yerr, it is believed,
will be nearly commensurate with the loss I have sta
ted, and thus the nett tolls, will be about the same as
last year. By the promptness and activity of the Ca
nal Commissioners and their officers, the entire line of
our public works, including all the branches, are now
in fall and successful operation.
I stated in my circular of the 29th of May, 1993,
that 0 we paid the interest due in February last, and
we can do so in August and February next, if active
and prompt measures are adopted in theseveral counties
of the Commonwealth." Your' carts have fulfilled
these expectations, and our Commonwealth stands re
deemed, from the dishonor, which for a time rested up
on her. Let us not falter now. Let us determine- to
use all the means in our poorer; to maintain our ele
vated position, and avert the impending calamities which
would fall upon our Commonwealth and our citizens,
should our plighted faith be again broken.
There is reason for great anxiety, but not despon
dency, as the following brief statement will exhibit.—
Our resources may be stated thus:
Assessments for 1846, estimated nett amt $1,185,000
Do of previous year, do. 275,000
Nett tolls from public works, 500,000
The interest falling due in August and February next,
may be stated to be 0,860,000. The ordinary and
other revenues not stated, it is believed, sill be sufficient
to meet the ordinary expenses of government. It will
he thus seen that the prompt and punctual payment of
