Itar We are requested to mention that

or A letter from Alexandria_ states that ,
the Egyptian government has recently put
into operation the decision relative to the
abolition of Slaveri. Not only kit no longer
allowed to sell slaVes in Egypt, but all those
in the hands of priVate individuals were in
formed that ,they ,were free.
The condition of the farmers of Sus
queharina'Op unty has greatly improved with
in a few years past. The'soil they cultivate,
though' not the richest, is , naturally good,being
unsurpassed for grazing• and dairy purposes,
and Producing fair i crops of grain. 'Their but
ter and 'cheese takt premiums at our State
Fairs, and are becoming knewn and prized
in the cities. TII4 railroads aford -thorn fa
cilities for reaching market, greatly superior
to_those they fornierly gpssessed. And with
gocCde crops, high prices and a convenient
cash market, no wonder almost every farm
shows more or lesssigns of recent Improve
ments. The field, are better cultivated and
fenced, the dwellings improved in appearance
and surroundings, aid the barns' and other
farm buildings increased in numbers and con
When we add that they, for the most part,
provide good schools for their children4which
are found more on r lesS, on most farms,) and
take and read the' Independent Republican,
outiiiiders will readily believe that our lot is
cast amid a prosperous and intelligent com
munity. ' If there c are any—as-we incline to
`believe there arej—w.ho, with' means •suffie
ient, have neglected either to provide pleas
ant and comfortable homes, surrounded with
trees and shrubbery, for their families o r
barns and sheds for sheltering their stock,.
with water alway4easily accessible—or good
school houses, school books, and teachers
for their children-or the REPUBLICAN and

we would suggestithat delays are dangerous,
and the mistake should be remedied as soon
'.- or When Henry M. Fuller was elected
Representative of the Luzerne District over
that prince of d'Oughfaces;4,H. B. Wright, we
supposed he was elected as an anti-Nebraska
man. - He certainly has hadlthe reputation
of being an opponent ofslaveryLe, :tension, here
tofore, although before Coneess assembled
we heard it intimated that h i e -would prove
false to Free. Soil principlek His course
while the House has been trynig to effect an
organization, has destroyed all our confidence
in him as a Free Sailer. Prompt action is
nor required of the House, and for that, IM
mediate organization is necessa4. Mr. Ful.' 1
ler in_ our opinion has it in , his !power to elect
Banks Speaker whenever he Ifhooses. But
instead of doing this his duty, is we conceive,

be is found actin in concert w`th the South;
ern Know Notlungs, men 1,,. would vote
for Richardson sooner thA: or Banks, and
some of whom' a4nally did vote for Richard-,
son before voting for Fuller. i ,Nobody be
lieves that these South Ameri6ens would ev

existence. Sometimes tin. pfinters get heist

from age or ov rwork. Perhaps the com
positor, in cor

the wrong letter, or puts -it in the wrong

, or other, the raiStakes are there too often.—
' Thus a torrespoedent writes us that he sent
to the two Monirme papers a notice in which
occurred the mine of Mr. Bnck, and one pa

accomplished by a dark-eyed, well dressed,
genteel looking lady, who, when Mrs. W.
complained ofa pain in the head, said, "Ohl
I have some Cologne with te, let me, put a
little on your temples, it will doubtless relieve
you !" A poste munnaie,

breast pin, were all taken ; and the robber, by
means of the!,ehedr., also stole the baggage.
The parties hed traveled together from Bal

Poughkeepsie'. Mrs. Wright, who is lady
in high social standing, and the wife of , a man
of property, fasts so sensitive, that instead of
giving notice of her moneyless ()audition, ate
