Union State Ticket.
Adjourned on Saturday afternoon last.
Amongst its last acts was the passage of
the bill equalizing Soldiers' Bounties, and
increasing the pay of members to s'>ooo.
This provision was added by the Senate,
and reported by the Committee of Confer
ence. We observe that our member of
Congress very properly voted against the
proposed increase. The bill admitting Ne

the President,-so that it does not become a

\ candid manner by one thoroughly convers

CLARK of Blootnsburg, stamped this Coun
ty, to aid in the election of Mr. MERCUR, to
Congress. To-be-sure, the Republicans of
the County were sadly disappointed in the
character of Mr. CLARK'S ifforts, as his
speeches showed very little ability, and |
were principally devoted to denunciation of
Senator Bucklew, and the "Fishing Creek
Conspiracy." Still, as his utterances were
thoroughly loyal, the impression he created
were on the whole not unfavorable, though
: the idea became prevalent, that it did not
i take much talent to make a great man in
I Columbia County, if Mr. CLARK was a fair
' specimen of their "nig guns."
At that time lie was particularly severe
upon Mr. BUCKALEW and the treasonable
practices and disunion sentiments of the Dem
ocratic party. Now Mr.Cr.ARK is conferring
j with Senator BUCKALEW and appointing viru
iug all his most earnest "professions. This la
mentable spectacle is the price he pavs for
j the office of assessor of this District.
Has Mr. BUCKALEW and the Democratic
I paity changed in the few intervening months
' OR ' IAS Mr. CLARK become a traitor to
ibis party and principles? Are the plans
.of the Copperheads any the less objoction
able now to true Union men, than when
I Mi. CLARK SO boldly assailed and denoun
ced them '. \\ hatever may he the motives
which have controlled him, he has forfeited
■ the fair renown he once enjoyed, and will
find a congenial resting-place in the ranks
ot th • party he once effected to believe was
opposing toe best interests of the nation.
As we have no knowledge of the perso
nal prejudices or private griefs which have
I influenced Mr. CLARK, we have written about
his course, more in sorrow than in anger,
i as we sincerely lament that by such a great
act of treachery he should have over-shad
owed liis fair fame,with an odium which will
attach to it forever.

The Atlantic Cable Laid.
Messages Between Valeutia Bay & Heart's Guuteiit- :
Cyrus W, Field's Journal of the Voyage. ■
The fifth Atlantic Telegraph Expedition
arrived at Heart's Content on the morning
of Friday last, the Great Eastern having
laid the Cable safely during a voyage ot
twenty days from Valentia Bay. Messages
passed between Ireland and Newfoundland
on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and the
line was found to be in perfect order.
The following despatches, and the journ
al of Mr. Cyrus W. Field, tell the story of
this great success :

The successful completion of the Atlan

"a treaty of peace has been signed between
Austria and Prussia. 1 In addition, we have

The naval disaster to the Italians, the I

It is formally denied that the Emperor of
France had any thought of mixing in the

the concentration of troops on the frontier

11A VIIE-DE-G RACE, July 26, 1800.
A terrible tornado visited this vicinity '
about 0 o'clock last evening. The threat-1
ening masses of clouds, which hung around J
the horizon from north-east to west during '
the afternoon, rapidly concentrated north !
of this point, and at the above-named hour
the storm burst upon us with irresistible
fury, uprooting trees, prostrating bouses j
and doing much other damage.
The magnificent new bridge of the Phil- j
adelphia, VVilminton, and Baltimore Rail- j
road Company, spanning the river at this ■
point, some twenty-five feet above tide-wa- j
ter, encountered the violence of the storm. 1
It trembled for a moment, and then was [
hurled down from its piers into the river
with a terrific crash. Ten spans of the
! bridge, each 250 feet long, the labor of
! months, were rendered a complete wreck,
the river and buy being strewed with its
; debris for miles. Only one span on the
' Cecil side remains.
The loss cannot fall short of $200,000,
and is perhaps much greater.

IILISTER CLYMER said in his speech in
loading, on Wednesday, that "his history
as a politician was the history of the State
for the lust six years, and he would uot to
day alter a line or blot out a particle of it."
(Wc quote from the Aye.) We are glad
to notice tli • t lie is so frauk. Let us see
what he did lor the soldiers and sailors on
one or more occasions while he was in the
State Senate. During the session of IS'tq
Senator Graham, of Alleghany, offered a
resolution that tin: SSeuate ot Pennsylvania
uige upon Congress the propriety of in
creasing the pay of officers of the army
and navy twenty-live per cent., and of pri
vates one hundred per cent. On a motion
to proc< cd to a second reading, the Demo
i tats, with their leader, Mr. Clymer, voted
in the negative, thus causing a tie vote,
and the motion was lost. At the same
session a joint resolution was adopted re
<ju<.sting our Jiopresentatives in Congress
to vote for and use their iuflueuce for the
passage of a law increasing the pay of
non-com missioned officers and private soldiers
but upon its liual passage ileister Clymer
votes nay. Subsequently, when the bill
regulating soldiers' elections was passed,
- per again proved bis consistency by
voting against it. And yet, with this rec
ord, of which he now has the boldness to
suy he would not blot out a particle, he
asks the soldiers and sailors to give him

IHE testimony before the Iluuse Com
rmttee on the condition of Utah discloses
the tact that the laws of the United States
are openly and defiantly violated through

j liio Pittsburgh Republican states
that at Kisiug bun, lud., on the Ohio River
on the 14th of July, while the sky was per
lectly clear so far as the eye could reach,
| and the sun was shining brightly, a vivid
liasil of lightning appeared, followed by a
long and sharp peal of thunder. The elec
tric lluid struck a church and three dwell
ing-houses. At the same instant a little
boy had his clothing stripped completely
oil his body, not exceptiug his shoes, all of
which had the appearance of living been
cut with a sharp knife. The boy was on
ly stunned and slightly injured in one of
his logs. Another boy in the same vicinity
was also struck at the same time, but was j
more seriously, although not fatally in
jured than the boy who had his clothing
torn on. °
