I'usliin" oil boldly, and venturing now and
then into the pack ice, tliey once more came
into own water and descried the Devil's
Thumb'. Here they stopped no longer than
was necessary for rest, and availing themselves
of cverv favorable wind they soon reached the
Horse - Head, a promontory near Upernavik.
>io]i;ii.£r a day or two here, they set sail with
a splendid wind, but soon a fog came on.—
Tliey were proceeding slowly through the fog
when they heard a loud cry which they recog
nize'! as proceeding from civilized Esquimaux.
Tliev were astonished on pulling in the direc
tion of the sound to see a Danish boat with
white nioii on Ivoard. From these they learn
ed of the expedition in search of them, and
the Banish news of the world geuerally. Leav
ing the Danes to look for blubber they went
on to an island from sheer exhaustion.
The next day they went, on in the fog, at a
venture, and after pulling about three points
too much to the westward they.suddenly heard
a ihg bark. Turning in the direction they
pulled with all their might till they got inside
of some old landmarks, which quickened poor
Peterson's blond. They raised the American
thg on one boat and the Danish on the other,
and noiselessly pulled around the point, con
cealed by the fog —a fog which was to open
to their view the first settlement of Christian
men which tlieir eyes had seen for more than
The news had not gone further till they had
nearly drawn up to the beach. The Esqui
maux women first came out in their homespun,
and were soon followed by the men, all in the
greatest excitement. All the people at once
came down to see the strange arrival. Poor
Mr. Peterson was restored to the arms of his
loving wife and numerous supposed orphan
children. Quarters were provided for the ] tarty
at rpcrnavik. Here thev were obliged to
wait until the sailing of the Danish bark in
which they took passage for England. They
received much attention on board the bark,
the Mary Ann, on their way to Lievely, where
they arrived on the 10th of September. To
Captain Anderson, of the bark, tliey were
much indebted for jiolite and kind attentions.
He anticipated every want and did all in his
power to make them comfortable.
After staying at Lievely a week they met
with the llartstein expedition.
RIOT TV KANSAS, —A correspondent of the
P-velaml f„tler (free soil), writing from Lca-
Vemviirth, Oct. 2, says : —As Mr. .lames Furn
liaia was passing through the streets he was
hailed by a man who asked him to come in and
v <>te. Mr. F. declined. The man then asked
him to "come and drink." He declined that
itiritarion also. One of the Missourians then
a-ked him "why lie did not vote ?" Mr. F.
said, "Wn use Ido not consider the election
K r al." "He is one of the G—d d—d Free
Nate men," said the crowd. Mr. F. at this

(il to go. But he was too late. The crowd
gathered around him, and began to cry out
" Hang him !" " Lynch him !" " Tar and fcath

'''ized hold of him. Mr. Furnlmm being a
powerful man, turned round and kuock

THE FOREIGN ENLISTMENT VIOLATION OF OUR
! LAWS. —The Washington correspondent of the
: New York Times has the following statement,
put forth in the form of a prediction, Imt with
: the air of one who had learned something of
J the fact from official sources. The conclusions
of the writer as to the course intended to be
pursued in this matter may be correct, hut if
J they are, they are only a shrewd guess, for cabi
net secrets are not held so loosely. He says :
Indeed,'! hazard little in predicting that very
soon — perhaps by the next steamer from Eu
rope—M r. Crampton rrill be recalled by his Gov
ernment, in accordance with the demand which
the President must have made long since ; and
if he is not so recalled, it will be the duty of
the President to dismiss him peremptorily.
The British Government is understood to take
upon itself all the responsibiltv of Mr. Craui]>-
ton's acts ; but that cannot and will not dis
pense with the necessity for the Minister's re
call or dismissal. He represents his Govern
ment here ; and in his person will that Govern
ment be rebuked and disgraced for its bad faith
! towards us. Nor will our Governmental action
stop here, — but the e.retjualurs of MR. Barclay,
British Consul at New York ; Mr. Matthew,
British Consul at Philadelphia ; and Mr. Bow
croft, British Consul at Cincinnati, will all be
revoked, — of which fact I take it for granted
the British Government has received notice long
ere this. Let the early future prove the accu
racy of these predictions.
A S.vn SCENE INDEED.—A writer from Nor
folk to the Charleston Courier gives the heart
touching scene below : —"I have witnessed
some few sad scenes since I came here. I saw
a boy of six years' old breathing his last in the
same blood-stained pillow whereon his little bro
ther had expired in his presence a few hours
before, whilst the unconscious father lay at the
|ioint of death in the next room, and the poor
broken-hearted mother ministering to their last
moments, nearly unconscious of what she was
doing. The boy said to his mother a few mo
ments before death, "Mother, weep not, I know
1 am dying, and my little brother has gone be
fore me ; it will BE all the same in a few years
H&GR In removing (says the Philadelphia Bul
letin) some rubbish on the Edwards lot, in CHEE
nut street, above Fifth, within a day or two,
smoke issued from the ruins in considerable
quantities. The disastrous conflagration by
which the property on that spot was devasta
ted, took place in December last, and the flames
have been smouldering there ever since, a period
of more than nine months. This tenacious
clinging of tire to ruins is unprecedented in the
history of conflagrations in Philadelphia.

"FISH AND FHXIOSOPHY."
DR. JOHN M'INTOSII,
Would inform the inhabitants of Bradford county
that lie respectfull v solicits liOO subscribers for Ifis local
work entitled" FISH AND PHILOSOPHY, or Sketches
made During a Short Sojourn in Northern Pennsylvania."
The book will consist of from 250 to 300 pages, 12 1110.,
and will be bound in embossed muslin. The price will lie
sl,oo. As the work was not written to vindicate
any particular theory, or to advance any particular inte
rest , it is difficult to say what it aims at—further than to
help while away a leisure hour or two, in what the Au
thor hopes, not unprofitable reading.
The pages are cliieflv devoted to descriptions of local
scenery ; incidents while Trouting on the Schrader branch;
literary criticisms and reminiscences ; conversations, de
velopments of local character, poetry and philosophical
As the publication of the book 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 the 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, gentle
men, 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 docs 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 he 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 on the receipt of
the edition, should it be printed, asking no favors ; and if
600 subscribe!!! can be had, he will do no. lie 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 cher
ished and loved "the poor man's one little ewe lamb, that
was onto him as a d.Higher." 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 be 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. I'luni. And should
a second edition follow, he—the author—will exert alljthc
influence he can command to secure for the original sub
scribers a lock of that distinguished individual's hair ; as
thank Heaven, he is appreciative, and, judging from his
antecedents, the author has no doubt that l'litm would
gladly wear a wig for a whole year, to have the pleasure
of furnishing to his friends so interesting a souvenir.
The publication of the book, then, is dependent on the
receipt of 600 subscribers, and one month will IK- allowed
for names to be 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 be expected to see the light.
But, if the eutire number be obtained, those who have
signed, will, in three months front the closing of the sub
scription lists, be supplied with a copy, or copies, as they
mav have ordered.
Subscription lists will be opened 011 Monday next,at all
the stores, and at the I'. O. in the borough ; and at C. H.
HKKKICK'S, at Athens. At Burlington, there will lie one
at Messrs. LONG A MERRY'S store, and at Ulster Mr. JOHN
MATHER , and at Monroe, Mr. SEYMOUR I'UIN.NEY, will act
as agents. Others may be authorized.

inasmuch as along with the choice and elegant assortment
lie gives the most reliable assurance of an almost incredi
ble reduction in prices ; the rich and tasteful articles hav
ing been all bought with ready cash.
A. M. W., when he reflects how, for the past vears.with
a far less attractive stock, he has enjoyed so large a share
of pulilie patronage, flatters himself that the immense in

much more advantageous!v, will enable him to increase
the generous confidence which has hitherto iieen vouch
safed to liiin. He therefore solicits a continuance of the
favor of his old customers, and invites the public general
