Appotattwilit by the Ciaal Cessmissionsers,
EDSON ASPENWALL, Esq., of this County, has re.
eeiveti the appointment from the Canal Commis.
eioneti, of Suporinieudeta of the North ikaocii eay
- This appointment, which was asked for by an
partiesin this County, gives universal satisction
Mr. A. possesses the hi4heet qualificaticins twee
lacy for the discharge of the duties of this responsi
ble and important station, and while the interests
of the Commonwealth will be, with fideli
ffand zeal, his gentlemanly eportinet;t will make
im a popular officer. The Canal tommissioners
deserve credit for an appointment khighly proper,
and so in accordance with public,abntiment in the
Th. Lotting.
The late Argus, has a characteristic article in re
gard to they Canal
,I..etting. a Bich contains some
assertions so palpably manufactured for deception,
we cannot let them go unanswered.—We estract
the whole article, that our readers may see the ii.
liberal and unfair tone in which it is written.
CANAL Lyr-mr,a.—Proposals for the completion of
the several sections advertised in tbe locufocu pa
perso-mrere received at Tunkhannoek, on the 12th
init. It is understood that the bids nave been sent
to Harrisburg for the avowed purpose of being
opened and alloted by the Coital Commissioners;
but. w e e have heard it hinted, for the real purpose of
being Inspected and passed upon by Jesse Miller,
who is understood to be the chief fugleman of the
majority of the Board. It is now nearly two weeks.
since the letting took place—a su ffi cient time one
wo"ld suppose, to have you along With most any
amount of shuffling and packing of the proposals—
and yet contractors are in suspenee. as to who are the
favored individuals, Of course the pay of engineers
&c.. goes on as regular ss though they were engage
ed in staking out ground for the workmen. All this
bodes no good for the future.
Our information horn' Flarrisburg, in regard to
the allotments is, that Mr. Foarra upon arriving at
Harrisburg forth" purpose!uf egn.tering and prepar
ing the bids for the action •of the Canal Commis.
'goners, was taken ill, and was obliged to return to
Lewistown (now a short journey by the Central
Railroad) Mr Gamble accompanying him, and ta
king the bids with them; for the purpose of prepar.
ing them. When they ate completed Mr. Painter
"with dr. Foster would proce"dlo Philadelphia for
the purpose of securing a meeting of the board to
dispose of the matter.
We also understand that a large number of bids
have been received, from the most experienced
and responsible contractors , in the state, oflering tq
do the work at kw prices.
The fling about " the pay of engineers, &c. go
ing on," is as gratuitous as uncalled for. The edi
tors knew, as almost every member of our com
munity was aware, that as soon as the work was
surveyed for the letting, the engineer corps was
disbanded, and their pay *stopped--though they
Were to be idle but 'slew days; a caress Which kt
seldom adopted and which nothing but "an earnest
desire - for the most rigid . economy on the part of
Mr. F l osses, could havedictated—the pay, at best,
beiog, barely sufficient id defray the expenses. A
portion are now en g aged in surveying a pan of the
line below Tunkhannock.
Such attacks and iuuendoes as the Argus has
here employed, "bode no good for the future," for
.the Canal. They certainly look like anything else
titan friendship ter its speedy completion. If the
interests of the state are' outraged—if public confi
dence thatthe work will be economically conduct
ed, is abused—we shalt be the first to "cry aloud
and spare not." Every friend of the Canal owes it
to himself and the interests of Nolhern Pennsyl
vania to see•that there be no such transactions as
disgraced the reign of Stevens, Ritner, & Co. With
the officers now in charge of the work we have no
fames. Mr. Forrest, beside being a high-minded,
honest and capable man has an interest in tne coin
pletiOn of the Canal at the smallest possible outlay,
which is a guarantee that not a cent will be squan
dered with his knowledge—a feeling in which we
know his Assistant. Mr. GAXIIIIC, folly participates.
The Superintendent just appointed, has the full con
ftdence of our community., as a man whose busi
ness habits and honesty. are unimpeachable. The
-citizens of other sections of the state nave a guaran
tee in such officers liras their interests will not suff
er. it would be fortunate for our Commouwealth,
if every post in the State wee thee filled..
We caution the Argus that such ill-natured anti
. cies are calculated to do much mischief abroad.—
Rene, they are powerless, tieing passed over as the
saarlings , of narrow partisan feeling. But in parts
of the State; not favorable to the North Branch they
will be caught up, and commented upon as argil
merits against Its completion. We hope to see no
more of such : let us rather put our shoulders to
the work, and giving credit to whom credit is due,
forward its completion by every honorable means
in our power.

We have no doubt this is to be the settled policy

debt, must remain in (operation whether there is
money left in the Treasury to apply on , the North

BALL, that a loan will be inevitable to meet the

will have a surplus m August. But we begin to

Sullivan County.
We this week publish a cornmuni=tion in rela
tion to the removal of the County Seat of Sullivan
County, and also the proceedings of a meeting
held in that county in relation to the same. Hav
iug upon a former occasion inserted the proeea
dings of a meeting in fever of a removal. justice
seemed to require that as should give those op
posed to removal from Laporte, the same opportu
nity- of presenting their views to 'he public. The
question is one Iwhich bids fair to keep the citizens
of the county oiSullivan in commotion for some
tfille yet to come.
Tne Passim:re' 11l cssAct —The lettemcriters
have had a peep at the Message. One of them
writing to the Boston Atlas, says :—" Two promi
nent features in the President's domestic policy will
relate to the Tariff and Internal Improvements. In
regard to the Stet, a moderate system of protection
will be recommended ; not a large increase of dit
ties, bat a system of laying those do ies which shall
put a stop to the tillanoos evasions and enormous
fraud practised upon the revenue by foreigners; by
which the country is cheated out of a Very amid
erable portion of the revenue justly due, and our
own manufacturers defrauded of their just partici
pation in our own trade."
Lorr.s M. Powca, the present Whig Cam I Com
missioner of this State, hits been appointed ehrnr d'
affairs at the Conn of Naples. Mr. P's time expi
res it 3anaary next, when Mr. Gamble, tikes his
place. His health for some time past has been
very feeble, and we trust the more favorable Climate
of Italy will restore hire to health.
It. is seldom we have to record a more self sacrifi
cing and philanthropic sprit than was exhibited at
Shepherdstown, a few days since, by. Mr. Bowers,
the gentlemanly and arcomplihsed architect of the
Maryland and Virginia' Bridge. A free negro, in
the employ vt Mr. 8., was engaged in blasting
near the top of one of the highest cliffs on the Po.
tomac river, and a sand blast having "blown out,"
he commenced redrilling in the fissure of the rock.
He had scarcely prciceeiled more than six inches,
when the unbent% powder ignited, and the blast
went on with a tremendous explosion, tearing the
rock into a thousand fragments. Mr 11:, whb was
near by, attracted by the noise, ran to the tep of
the cliff. and perceiving the negro dreadfully woun
ded, and in the act of falling nil, without a nu).
ments hesitation, leaped some 15 feet, to the bench
on which he was stitngling, just in time to save
him: The escape of
,Mr. B himself. was truly
wonderful and miraculous. Had he wrack leo
inches farther from the bank, he mast have lore his
balance, and heen precipitated, with the negro, 250
feet. to the water's edge !
Taking into consideration the humble eharscter
of the rescued, and the thousand chances to one
against Mr. B.'s being ab:e to maintais. his gravity
after a tall of 15 feet on a shelf only six inches
wide, we may in truth say it was an act deserving
the highest commendation, and worthy to be writ.

law, will not finish the canal in less than ten
yews, for under the present revenue there cad not
be a surplus above the ordinary expemdiuma.of the
state, the specific appropriation mid the payment
et stale interest, of more than 1111111,000 a year,
and probably net reach that.
Under these mate of facts, what should be does I
There is but two modes left to compile the canal
in a reasonable time—one to borrow the mono
and the other to suspend the operations of the law
creating the sinking 'bind. I ask any reflecting
man, which of the two should be adopted. The
Ra we r will be, that the sinking fund should be
suspended, and the canal finished as speedily as
possible, and the revenues of the canal go into that
But the Argus men think that the enemies of
the canal, are the ones in favor of the suspension
of the sinking fond. May we here a large majori
ty of such enemies in the present Legislature, for
we ill boom that its suspension will complete the
canal in three yews.
These Argos mmi in their party real to head the
Democrats, and to go it blind for the favorite
scheme of the present Administration, appear to be
willing to sacnfiee all the interests of the canal.
Look at the insinuation about the appointment of
the present Superintendent. They could have
saved themselves the trouble of that paragraph. by
referring to the law, and they would have found
that the Commissioners were obliged to appoint a
Superintendent. -
Also look at the article where they say it has
been hinted that the late bids have been sent to
Harrisburg to be alloted by Jesse Miller. This
coarse of conduct is calculated to do great injury
to out best interest It can do To good, and why
continue such slang.
It will be found that it will need all the united
exertions of the the friends of the canal of both
parties, to finish it. Then let na go to the work like
men and not like snarling boys.
num, Sullivan Co., Nov. 20, 1249
To die Editor V tit Bradfird firporter—Sut: We
ti nware 'the midst of excite produced by the
removal of our County Seat. i .
At the last - session of the an Act was
passed appointing the Bon. tn. Jessup. John H.
Brodhead and declaim& Irish, ommissiouers to re
view and, if necessary, to re-locate the seas of
justice of this county.
The third meeting of the Commissioners was
held at this phiewon the fink and seemi days of
this month. Those two days wets occupied in ar
guments and statements for, and against, removal
of the seat of4estice from Laporte. The state
ment however, made by the correspondent of "the
Star of the North" that a vote was then, or there,
takei upon the question of removal, is incorrect in
fact. No vote war taken. There were occasional
expressions of opinion from some of the members
of the audience, as they happened to concur with,
or dine: from the sentiments, of the person speak
ing; but no question was pot to the people there
assembled, nor was any vote given by them
,Judge Jessup was in favor of no removal from
Laporte; the, other two commissioners decided
upon removing it to Mrs. Fairchild'. The action
' of these two constituting a majority ~.has dissatis
fied nine tenths of the people of the county, and
they will never rest satisfied till it is removed back
to Lap One.
Although we, of this township, thought that the
county seat ought originally to have been located
here, and that if removed from-Laporte, it should
by all means be fixed here, yet we infinitely pre.
fur that it should remain where it was originally
located, rather than have it where it has recently
been. located by a majority of the Commissioners.
This last location is within about three miles of
your euu:.ty line, and will be the means of impos.
ing great hardship, an& unnecessary expenses and
taxes upon as. 'lt is berieted that the united and
concentrated voice el a large majority of the cid •
zero of the county will not be unheeded by the
next Legislature; but that they will rebuke the, in
justice which boa been done us--that they will re
establish it at Laporte, and thus relieve us hom
heavy taxation and give au impetus to the settle.
meet of the uncultivated lands of our county.
We need peace; and quietude, to induce settlers
to come in 'nowt as, and assist in clearing op
oar lands, and in paying the necessary expenses of
the county organization, but there eau be no - peace
nor tranquility, while the county asat remains at

TIM CALM/MA Purr.—The Philadelphia Led-
ger, a neutral print, in an article on the new Con
suution of California, has the following paragraph :
g , We are amused by the remarks of partisan
journals upon this act of the Californians. Some
say that each of the political parties, for the purpose
of prirchasing-Southern votes, had defeated the ter
ritorial bill of the last session. and were intriguing
to bring California into the Union without any con
stitutional provisicitisagainst slavery. We do not
undertake to decide between them, mutual crimina.
lions, but have very little doubt about the existence
of a plot to stitrotium slavery into the Territory.—.
Several politicians of both parties went to Califor
nia immediately after the closedt the last Cotigrese,
and made themselves very conspicuous on the
stump. Knowing that an express recognition of
slavery was entirety out of the question, they en
deavored topnrsuade the emigrants to a crmstitu
lion that should be silent -on the subject. While
they were thus at work, several journals in some
Id the Southern States argued upon the right and
the expediency of int roducing slavery, and the
practicability of holding slaves n. the territory. At
the same time, journals in the North, protessing to
oppose slavery, were arguing to prose that, with
out any express declaration upon the subject, by
Congress or the people of the territory, the intro.
ductrin of slavery was both lega ly and prachicalfy
impossible. But the people of California' hate de
feated all these intrigues, and defeated them by
that process for which the white population from .
all parts of Ile Union, excepting politicians and
large slave owners, are always ready, express pre
hibition. This settles the question for all territory
excepting New , Mexico, end will settle it there
when the American popetatien shall be numerous,
enough for a State government, Congress do their
duty in the mean time."
So far the Philadelphia • journal. The truth
1 that it Wits idle to deny that a conspiracy was on
foot to bring California mkt the Union with a con
stitution from which all mention of slavery had
been carefully excluded, as it is to deny that an
election took place in this state last week. As idle
is it, on the part of Abe Northern journals, alluded
to in the passage we bate copied, to deny . thatthey
were accomplices in the conspiracy..
