The European Harvest.
Thr advices from Paris respecting brcadstuffs

aIV Vnmeut have published an article in the
\inniteur in which it is stated that the French
i t harvest falls short of an average by se
* millions hectolitres, the difference between

The London Times, also, of the 22d Septem
has an editorial on the state of the money
L' corn market, in which it points out the
rlct of a failure of the crops, which prove be
an average in all the south of Europe, be-

••The American hardest has been splendid ;
uDUsuallv great breadth of land lias been
uiider wheat this year, and the crops have been

""heat is estimated at about 6,000,000 quar
ter from the United States and Canada—a
lutitv which is more than sufficient to cover
t'ice the alleged deficiency in France. Of this
nLntitv it i-s .stated tl.at aboul half will be
l ,: ~e a for Europe between the Ist of Septem
ber nml the Ist of May ; and we have reason
to believe that very large orders have already
been transmitted to the other side of the At
lantic for the French market.
- There is no doubt that in France, and in
!Ilost of the countries of Central and Southern
Europe the late harvest has been below the j
averaW, and that in this country it falls short
of the extraordinary and bountiful harvest of
]s-)4 The prices of corn and of almost all
the first necessaries of life are, therefore, very
high, and higher in proportion in most parts of
the continent than in this country.
" Although the blockade of the southern
~orts of Russia, and especially of the Sea of
Vzoff cuts off the supplies from an extensive I
and fertile district, we see no reason to doubt ;
that measures ntav still be taken to open the
navigation of the" Danube and the corn trade 1
of the Principalities. No part of the world j
t.rodnees a greater abundance of the finest j
grain, stud the harvest of the past summer was j
so abundant as to compensate the inhabitants
for the sufferings and losses attending the iu
vasion of the previous year.
ScicihE y A BOY.— The Menaslni (Wis.)
Advocate, of the 13th inst., gives the following j
account of the commission of suicide by a boy !
only 12 or 15 years of age, who appears to have j
been a victim to lirutality : I
- Young Reiser iaiagimed hintself to IK;
whipped and abused too moeh by the village j
bore, and on Monday eveniug he told his mo- i
ther he would stand it no longer —that he would j
hang himself. No attention was paid to the j
threat, and on Thursday morning lie was vrhip
jhml bv his mother for some trivial offence, after
which she sent him to the woods to procure
some good switches, to be hereafter used on liiiu
for bad behaviour. He was accompanied by a
younger brother. After going into tlx? woods !
a short distance, he sent the brother back home
for a rope, in order, as lie said, to bring a large
bundle. On his brother's return, young Kelsev
was stiff in death. In the absence of his broth- 1
cr, he placed some blocks on the ground, placed t
one of his suspenders round his neck, and tied j
oue end to the limb of a tree, kicked the blocks j
awav, aud kuug in that position until dead. '1 his
is, indeed, a sad affair—for one so young to take j
his life by his own hands. Those who have seen
the corpse say that even in death his counten
ance exhibits the picture of determination aad j
Drive FROM EMOTION.—The father of Tucker- j
man, the Boston defaulter, was well known as ;
a genial man, with a smile and a pleasant word
for every one. Since the news respecting his
son's swindling transaction was made known,
all joyful expression left his face, and stolid fea
tures. his eyes fixed on vacancy.and his ghastly,
pallid color, all showed that deep grief had ta
ken possession of him. Some ten days since.;
witlwut any marked cause, he died from shame 1
—the victim of his son. There may have been j
no rupture of the cardiac organ, but the world j
recognises it as a broken heart. If the son is
unmoved by the thoughts of the orphans and
widows be has wronged, will he be touched by j
the parricidal results of his wilful wrong-doing ? j
The death of Mr. Pellicker, a well-known
merchant, who resides in Brooklyn, occurred on j
Mondav, under very peculiar circumstances. I
He was in perfectly good health, aud had just j
returned from the country, where he has left j
his wife, who was recovering from a recent ill
ness. HP had but reached home when a tele
paphic message was brought to him announcing
j'is wife's death. He sank into a chair on rend
i"? the sad news, said he felt very ill, and re
quested that a physician should l)e sent for, and
died immediately. The iufluence of the mind
,jV er the body is mysterious, aud its effects are
startling. The above instances are not unu
sual, but noue the less note-worthy.—iVeir

*£rThe people along Lake Michigan, from
Allegan north to Manistee, have been thrown
' into a state of the most intense excitement by
1 the operations of a gang of marauders, who
! are reported to be Mormons from Beaver Island,
and who have carried on their operations with
■ a boldness, coolness, and desperation rarely
equaled in the records of highwaymen.—They
' are reported to have burned sawmills and rob
• bed stores north of the Grand River. At
' Grand Haven they made repeated attempts to
break into stores and shops. They made their
1 appearance at the mouth of the Kalamazoo, and
after looking about some, pushed up south as
far as the tanneries in the town of Ganges, and
broke open ROBINSON & PLCMMER'S store, rob
bed them of $1,600 worth of goods and made
back again down the lake. Off Port Shelbon
they were seen by a vessel's crew anchored there,
with their plunder all open to view, and were
pulling on down as careless and fearless as
though they were pursuing a legitimate calling.
There is said to be upwards of twenty in the
gang. They sail one small schooner of twenty
or thirty tons, and two Mackinaw boats.

I _ " FXSH A WD PHILOSOPHY."
DR. JQHN MINTOSH,
Would inform the inhabitants of Bradford county
■ that he respect full v solicits 6(8) subscribers for his local
I work entitled " FISH AND PHILOSOPHY, or Sketches
! made During a Short Sojourn in Northern Pennsylvania.''
J The book will consist of from 250 to 300 pages, 12m0.,
I and will be bound in embossed muslin. The price will be
! 41,01'. As the work was not written to vindicate
j any particular theory, or to advance any particular inte
rest, it is dilficult to say what it aims at — further than to
| help while away a leisuic hour or two, in what the Au
| thor hopes, not unprofitable reading.
I The pages are chiefly devoted to descriptions of local
scenery ; incidents while Trojting on the Sehrader branch;
literary criticisms and reminiscences ; conversations, de
velopments of local character, poetry aud philosophical
A the publication of the hook is not a question of
bread, the author can use the liberty of speaking plain —
In the first place, then, he cannot afford to publish the
book unaided — nor would he if he could ; for the simple
reason, he is unwilling to shoulder the responsibility of
committing A— possibly — poor book to tbc world. He
therefore seeks to make a corporate concern of it, and
thus share with the subscribers the odium of failure,
should it fail. It is a purely gratuitous matter, gentlc
meu, sign, or not sign. In the second place, the author
is unwilling to have his stock of books added to, by too
many hundred copies of a work that failed to redeem the
price of its publication ; neither does he desire the horror
of witnessing the awful spectacle of an auto-da-fe, of what
cost him so much pains and time to create ; — for be cer
tainly would commit to the flames what remained unsold
of the edition, should they remain too long on his hands.
He is determined to pay the publisher ou the receipt of
the edition, should it be printed, asking no favors ; and if
600 sub-cribcrs can be had, he will do so. He can afford,
however, to wait, should the 600 refuse to come to the
rescue. The MS will not diminish in value. It will re
main as it has done, cherished by the owner, as was eher
ished and loved '-the poor man's one little ewe lamb, that
was unto him as a daugher." The author will ask no one
to undertake to publish it on the strength of its merits :
perhaps from pride, perhaps from a prophetic apprehen
sion of its lack of merit. Time—perhaps — will determine
if he did well to lie influenced by the latter consideration.
The author will further say, that should the desired num
ber of subscriptions be obtained, he will feel tempted to
promise an embellished frontispiece, enclosing a medallion
likeness of the principal character, Dr. Plum. And should
a second edition follow, he—the author— will exert alljthe
influence he can command to secure for the original aub
scrilters a lock of that distinguished individual's hair ; as
thank Heaven, he is appreciative, and, judging fromjiis
antecedents, the author has no doubt that Plum would
gladly wear a wig for a whole year, to have the pleasure
of furnishing t > his friends so interesting a souvenir.
The publication of the book, then, is dependent on the
receipt of 600 sueribers, and one mouth will be allowed
for names to lie given in. If, at the expiration of that time
only one person has subscribed, or any other number be
tween that and 600— unless very closely approximating it
—the book will not of course l>e expected to see the light.
But, if the entire number he obtained, those who have
signed, will", in three months from the closing of the sub
scription lists, be supplied with a copy, or copies, as they
may have ordered.
Subscription lists will be opened on Monday nextot all
the stores, and at the P. <). in the borough ; and at C. 11.
HKBRICK'H. at Athens. At Burlington, there will be one
at Messrs. LONO A MKHKV'S store, and at Ulster Mr. JOHN
M ATHKK . and at Monroe, Mr. Srvwoi K Puixxtv, will act
as agents. Others may Is- authorized.

To the School Directors and School Teachers of
Bradford County :
THE recent Convention of School Directors of this Cotun
ty, adopted a resolution requesting the County Su
i periuteudeut to hold, or cause to be held, Teachers' Inati
' tntes in the different townships of the county. In com
pliance with this resolution, I now give notice, that the
necessary wraagvinents arc in progress for holding a ae
ries of these Teachers' Schools. It is not deemed advisa
ble to hold one in each township this fall. In mauy cases,
not enough would attend to give tbem interest and utility.
I I have accordingly, selected such points for holding the
first series, as has appeared to me most suitable for the
different divisions of the county. The places named are
only suggestive. If the School Directors of cither of these
divisions prefer another, I will cheerfully acquiesce in a
change. The list is given at the foot of this notice.
These Institutes are intended for Teachers only ; and
their leading object is to improve teachers in the Art of
Teaching, it is expected that the Teachers and Directors
living near the place of holding these Schools, will get
the School House'which is to be used, in order, keep it
so, have fuel supplied and make provision for boarding
The incidental expenses of these Institutes, such as the
board of the Preceptor, fuel, light—for the evenings must
be occupied with Lectures—4c., the TeachenPtnost bear.
The amount to each, will, of course, depend on the num
ber attending. Pour dollars, will probably, be the out
side expenses of one of these Institutes. This to be equal
ly borne among the Teachers, be their number twenty or
Timely notice will le given In the papers, of the com
i nicnceinent of each of these Institutes, accompanied by a
j programme of the exercises. The lirst will be held in To
wanda. early in Octolier, and will be under the direction
iof Professor C. It. Cobi rn. lu the management of the
j others, the Superintendent will have the assistance of able
Teachers wishing to attend these Institutes, must report
i themselves to the Secretaries of the School Hoard of the
township where held, Is-tore the 25 th day of September.—
This officer's name aiul address is given In the list below.
I have to request these officers, to report to me the num
ber as soon as practicable after the '2sth.
School Directors are artiest I y requested to give this en
terprise all the encouragement and aid they can. These
Institutes can be made useiul.
Owing to the irregularity in the time of opening the
schools, and the shortness of the time a large majority are
kept open, the ruperinteudeut cannot visit all the schools.
I This is the sole cause of this failure. It is my desire to
j remedy this, and i have a proposition to make to the
school directors, which will obviate the cause and its re
sults. ' ' ' - ' 1
If the directors of Monroe, Albany, Wilmot, Overton, ■
Durell and Asylum, will commence "their schools in the ,
first week of November :
The directors of Standing Stone, Wyalusing.Tusrarorai
Herrick, Pike and Warren, theirs in" the third week in
The directors of Wysox, Rome. Orwell, Windham,
Litchfield and Shesheqnin, theirs in the first week in De
The directors of North Towanda, Ulster, Athens, Ridg
bery. South Creek, Wells, Columbia, Springfield, Smith
field and East Burlington, theirs in the third week in De
And the directors of West Burlington, Troy, Armenia,
Oranville, Canton, Leroy, Franklin and Towanda, theirs
in the first week of January, I can visit every school house
in the county, that has a school in it, during the winter ;
and if the order I have marked out, or something approxi
mating it, is observed in the opening of the schools, and
then remain open one month, I will agree to visit all.—
Now, what say you,"school directors? There is nothing
to prevent this arrangement ; will you go into it?
The best way to commence the work is, for each district
to advertise for teachers, and give notice in this advertise
ment, of the time of commencing the schools. The cost
of advertising will be one dollar, and if any board of di
rectors feel unwilling to take this much out of the school
fund. I will pay the dollar for advertising, on the condi
tion that all the districts of the county go into this ar
I hope the different boards will co-operate with me, in
every effort made to advance the schools. Complaining
will not mend them. This has been tried for tweutv years,
and still tin#- are very poor; and we may find fault "twen
ty years more, and they will fie no better unless we take
hold. We cannot get rid of the school law. This is set
tled. The question then is, shall we suffer it to lie a bur
den without any advantage, or shall we second the efforts
of our law-makers to improve it ? The latter seems to me
to be the only wise course. Let us try it, only for a few
years. But to in ike it better we must look after it. We
must order out of chaos, or the fruit will still be bitter.
