would be mut likely to prove efficiat
public officers. In our opinion Jacob Reel,
EN. wkii stands at the bad of.the ticket .
for Chief Burgess, tbougb set without his
faults—r-fur who is rithout themt—will
give far more general public sitisfae:tioe
than his woukl-be-competitor. He may
not, it is true, require quite SO large in
amount of stern screw' . e looney, to Insure
public tmhquility and official vigilance, as
the individual alluded to, but we think that
public : tranquility will be quite as well se
cured without the aid'of the said' secret
service money. With respect to the coun
cilmen nominated they are all good men
and true. One of them, formerly a Wolf
man,. whose manly firmness in coming out
fur Ritner, has exposed him in some measure
to the threatened persecution of the loco
focos. - These are the principal officers
to be elected; and we hope that every true
Whig will support the ticket. above all,
we hope that no true Whig will permit
his name to be used as an opposition can
didate; thereby to defeat the regularly'
nominated ticket, and thus afford a tnumph
to the Locofocos.
We call the attention of our readto
extracts from administration papersur
first page, on the subject of Infidelity and
Locofocoism. We think it high' time that .
public attention -should be directed to the
fact that self-styled Democrats, in many
places, l aro ranging themselves- under the
banners of that " bright Venus of Demo
cracy," Fanny Wright. Tammany Hall,
iti NewkYork, has been noted for its ini
quities and abominations. This is the
great head quarters of infidelity and loco
focoism! Here, they preach politics and
irreligion alternately! The Bible and the
banks, the alternate topics of bitter satire
and ferocious denunciation. We think
that the public mind ought to be thorough.
ly alive to the nature of those doctrines
which assimilate themselves so easily and
naturally to infidelity in religion. Why
is it that their political doctrines are so
loudly preached by all the popular infinel
lecturers of the day? Simply, because
there is something in them which cones
ponds with their own immoral and perver
ted views and feelingstln religious subjects.
W • hink this is a self-evident positi •.

anthracite basin froin which the above
specimens of coal was brought, like our
own, terminates in a bituminous region,
and the coal in question was taken out of
the mines at a distance of twenty miles
from the said bituminous region.
In connexion with this subject, we would
mention that Mr. Burd Patterson has com
menced the foundation of a furnace in this
borough, in which the business'of making
iron with anthracite coat will be underta

complete success. We shall keep our

101 TIM aintras' JOURNAL
Mr. BMllll,lll.—Please allow one of your fellow
citizens, and in unadulterated Whig. to say a
few words respecting the election for bormigh of
ficers which will be held on Monday next. That
election is of greatest importance to the
Whig party in Schuylkill county, as it regards
the coming ekction, in October nest ; and of the
truth of that fact a large majority of the Whigs
of this borough are aware. But onr eirChief
Burgess, to gratify private malice & spleen, is
willing to unite with the Vannes to get up a
aecoad ticket , with himself at the head of it for
Chief Burgess, in opposition to the ticket which
was regularly nominated by a meeting of the
free voters or Pottsville,. assembled for that pur.
pose. Now Mr. Editor, that gentleman, and
those who secobd his movements. (if any there be
who tie se; are very much mistaken to the people
whom they arc attempting to gull. Humbugs
are of rather too frequent occurrence now &dip

April Frosts.—lt is generally thought that the
late severe frosts have killed the peachei in this
part of the country. Some experienced market
gardeners in this neighbourhood, however, enter
tain a different opinion, and we shall be very
glad to find that their views are correct. iWe
have now some very valuable peach orchar s in
this vicinity; which have been raised at grea ex
pens°, and with do ordinary care. labor and 'at

great regret, not only to their owners and culti

We are told that some of the peach cultivators
in the District have kept fires constantly burning
during the late frosty nights in the midst of their
peach trees; and we are informed that this meth.
od of saving their fruit from the rasagiss of
frosts has been successfully practised by eaperi•
enced horticulturists in the Northern States.
Block Islend.—Moth speculation kas been ex
cited by the great political change in Block
Island, (Rhode Island.) We learn from the
Providence Journal tbat it was occasioned by the
spread of the temperance reform, the building of
a church and a general awakening of interest
in soucertos.
The Glube says, that the Government
is " opposed to imprisonment for debt."'
No doubt of it. If imprisonment for debt
were universal, the Government itself
would have beer. peeping through the
ban of a jail long ago.--Prentice.
