On the morning of the 16th of May, the
fourth day of the bombardment, about day
break, the gallant commander of the fort took
advantage of a short cessation of the enemy's

on t h e watch the night before. He remained
i n his tent about an hour, when he left it and
:,sited the bastion commanded by Capt. Miles.
!fere he found several young ocers collected,
w h o where conversing. and j ocular l y t remarking
nn the n ovelty of their position, having never
before heard any enemy's cannon. The Major
J oined in the Conversation, but in a short time
J d't them, saying, as he turned away: " Young
ge ntlemen, I most sincerely hope that you may
live to fight many battles ; and as I know you
all, I hope you may have on opportunity to do
v ourselves justice." He left this bastion to
w i t Captain Lowd, and gave that officer orders
to tire s a certain number of guns at certain in
tervals, and to produce as great an effect as pos
sible. This was done for a purpose then only
known to himself. A few hours afterwards, as
the Major was again pin , around the fort,
a ccompanied by his adjutant. Lieut. Page, a
G allant and very efficient young officer, now
adjutant of the 7th infantry, he informed him
that the guns which he had ordered Capt. Lowd
to fire was the :signal agreed upon between Gen.

he was closely besieged. lie had ecarcely

MORMON AFFAIRS.—Thp Hancock' difficul
ties still continue to occupy much space in the
Western papers. At the last accounts, the
posse under Mr. Carlin numbered eight or ten
hundred strong, and would march on Nativno
so soon as a sufficient force was collected. At
the solicitation of sor t ie of the citizens iif Nau
coo, the Governor despatched Cul. Parker.
with ten men, to quiet the difficulties in Han
cock. Parker has issued his Proclamation re
questing the posse under Carlin to disperse
and return to their homes. He has also writ
ten to Carlin that he will execute all the writs
in his possession, and if he and his posse do
not disperse he shall treat theni as a mob.—
Carlin, acting under legal advice, returned for
answer, that he can do his 'duty as an officer
without any assistance from Parker, and if he
and his ten men interfere with his in the per
formance of his duties, he shall treat him as a
mob. The Quincy Whig, an Anti-Mormon
paper, says :
tt It seems a Mormon was shot on Thurs
day night, by one of the picket guard, station
ed near Carthage. The facts appear to be
these :—a company of five Mormons were ad
vancing towards the camp—they were told to
stand, when one of them snapped his gun at
the guard, which was answered by a discharge
from the guard, and a terrible out-cry m amone
the Mormons was the consequence. The next
morning a glazed cap was picked up near the

Col. Chittenden a prisoner. through the basest

Suicidal Policy.—lt appears passing strange
to our comprehension that the Pottsville Jour
nal, which its eilitoi and " agent for the pro . -
prietor" claims to be a " Miner's Journal" par
excellence, should labor so hard as it dues to
destroy the business of its own region. It fol
lows up column after column with articles
rather than arguments, not only to convince
the public that foreign coal will he furnished
for a les.i price than domestic, hut that the for
mer is stiperiar to the latter in quality, and to
prove to the coal operators and miners that they
cannot possibly carry on their business, and
should at once discontinue it, and throw their
hands out of employment. If surh a suicidal
course should Inert with favor from those en
gmsed in the domestic coal business. then, in

them that they " kiss the ,hand that smiles

" The use of feel now enters much more ex
tensively into almost all branches of manufac
tures than formerly. Even where w ner is
used as the driving or motive power for the ma
chinery, steam is now generally used for the
boiling, bleaching and drying process. The
tendency of manufacturing, therefore, all other
things being equal, is to seek the cheapest
points, the sources, of fuel.
The South are not blind to the farts that tin
der the influence of the high tax at present up
on foreign fuel, $175 per ton, the location of
manufacturing generally has been gradually
changing from Eastern points up more nearly
into the centre of the country, and we doubt
nut that little objection will be made by the
South nr West to. such reasOnshle modification
of the duties upon coal, and indeed upon iron,
as the nature. of the interests may demand.—

The decease.' was a graduate of Union College.
On returning to his native village, in the fall of 044,
he was employed during many months as preceptor
of the Academy, and dischaiged the duties of that
station with ability and zeal. The public who were
acquainted with his worth, regard their loss as a
general calamity.. By his numerous friends and
relatives, the companions of his boyhood, and the
associates of riper years, his dec4se is lamented as
a personal affiicticni. The shaft of death which
laid him low, has wounded many hearts.
In this Borough, where he had employed some
months during the last two years of his life in the
study of Law, his kindness, equable temperament
and social disposition, had won for him gulden
opinions from the extensive circle of acquaintance
in which he was known. In the freshness of early
manhood, upon the eve of entering on the duties of
a profession to which he had devoted his life in
preparation, and whose proudest honors were but
the reasonable reward of his zeal, industry and tal
ent ;—in the commencement of his career, suddenly
he is arrested, and the ambitious 'leavings of an
earnest heart are stilled forever.

Takes the cars that are hoary—
But the voice of the weeper
Wails manhood in glory.
The friends of the deceased, though they are de
nied the privilege of witnessing here on earth the
exercise of those powers with which he was so
liberally endowed, and which seem to have been
extinguished by an untimely blight—to have been
partially made in vain ; yet they cannot subscribe
to the cold creed of the sceptic. They cannot be
lieve that the cold clay which they have committed
to its kindred earth, is all that exists of the generous
friend, the affectionate son and brother; that the
fire of intellect, the genial play of the affections,
have been consigned to blank annihilation ; but on
the contrary, they look forward witlthumble hope,
beyond the damp grave, to a reunion with their
friend in a happier existence.
Beyond the flight of time,
Beyond this vale of death,
There surely is some happy clime,
Where life is not a breath:
Nor life's affections transient fire
Whose sparks fly upward to expire.

ARRIVAL OF SUMMER GOODS,
.41 No. 4, Brick Rote.
MITE subscribers are now receiving and opening •
I_ very large supply of fieasonabl. GOODS, which
they are anxious to sell on the most favorable termafur
•They are fully determined Cot no one shall sell Goods
cheaper than they. 'laving taken much pains in the
selection of their goods—and as many articles of mer
rhandixr have fallen off in price since spring purchases
were made, 'they confidently believe they can offer
some inducements to those who wish to buy damp
goods they will not readily find elsewhere, especially •
stores that purchased their goods early in the season
It will take hut a mo:ncnt to drop in and examine some
of their cheap Goods. Such as
Good Brown Muslin, 7 touts per yd.
Calicoes, 7 do.
Very good Prints„ lOat2 &15 per yd.
Brown Sugar. 7, 8 & 9 cents per lb.
Good Molasses, • 30 cents per gallon.
Green Tea from 12i cents to $1 per lb.
Anil all other articles in proportion. They do net
like to say they will sell "cheaper" and "more" "goods^
than any hotly else. That would seem too much Ilk.
boasting; but they will say distinctly, they wtr POT
be undersold; and, will also say to their Lumber and
Produce customers, that they have the moat entire am
fidence that no fault will. be found with the price of
Goods. If they only bring in their Lumber and Pro.
duce, they will find goods as cheap as where they sell
exclusively for case!
They do not consider it necessary to enumerate a ce
or any of the articles they have Flr sale. Suffice it to
say, their assortment is now full and complete. Coil
and examine for vnuraalvrs.
