assassiditit Prina - Alfred ln Sydney, N.
S. W., as well as to his reference to the
Prince himself. The Tories upbraided
thft _Government with being the indirect
mine 6f One 'pregent state of Ireland.
In the House 'of Commons Mr. Bright
thought the present condition of affairs
inlreland to be no cause panic, but
urged that .both parties should strive
to remeditc the 'land grievance ques
tion at this session of Parliament.
Poehimself, he 'mould not remain
on the Treasury Bench, if he did
not pea that he was honestly , and
energetically advocating measures which
wouldfeffect great salutary changes in
Ireland. 'The settlement of the Church
question will-not stay , the present out
rageti in that pottion of the United
Kingdom but it is the first example that
any Parliament has ever given that it
was willing to do justice:to Ireland, and
is an earnest of that intention.
Mr. Gladstone : followed in support of''
Mr. Bright.- He had always; found that
Protestant ascendancy in favor of re
ligious establishments was the para.'
mount cause of the mode in which the
powerof the landlords had been used,and
by which the relations of the tenants are
vitally affected. He thought Lord Stanley
had4l4, tfcepatedLioo much; in demanding

feared misapprehension would attract to
any representation that might be
given now, but it Was necessary to avoid
the appearance of having sugges
ted measures from fear of panic
or, upon. a momentary occasion.
ocumhuled by saying, that the Govern-,
nietie was anxious to substitute for the
present condition a state of confidence
in the country and loyalty to the Crown.
Mr. Gat4orne .Hardy, Conservat ve,
urged the immediate removal of the • •y
-or of Cork. He considered that the •v
-ernmont were hound to declare a po cy
cm the Land question. and thus dist .
the unreasonable expectation of Ire •d.
The subject was then droßped.

laterals, must be regarded as a banker

vested in United States bonds, and also
upon -the average amount deposited.
whether payable on demand or at some
future day. That in ascertaining the
amount of capital, all , money used in
the business of banking must be regarded
as capital, - whether furnished by the firm
or borrowed; and it is -immaterial for
what time loans are made. That loans
are frequently charged to furnish relia
ble capital for banking purposes, and in
such cases the average amount borrowed
should be ascertained and taxed as capi

and upon which hone is paid, is taxable.

Friday. Some of the knives in the tub in
which the clay is cut up became de

superintendent; having stopped them
from rttnhing, got into the tub to remedy
the difficulty. The other machinery in
the building was in motion at the time,
and the jar therefrom caused the belt to
slip back upon the pulley. The knives
were set in motion again, and Toomey's
body was severed just below his arms.

Templars' Convention—Tie Bycltle—

[Correspondence ol,the 1,110 PtttE urelt tiszette.)
MoNONOAECELA CITY. AP l ril 30, 1809/
MEssns. EDITORS: I desire to give you
an account of this pleasant town as it
was and is, besides other topics of interest
that have come under my notice on -my
trip here. Leaving Pittsburgh I took
passage on the "calliopic' steamer
"Elisha Bennett." I found clerks Dales
and Smith in the office, and can assure
you that your correspondent desired no
more agreeable• company than these of •
doers. Afteran enjoyable trip of a few •
hours we reached this place, to find every- •
thing moderately quiet. On the 27th inst. •
the Templars' Convention met at the M..
E. Church. Delegates from Lodges in the
adjoining oounties, were present. The
meeting was first addressed by Hon.
S. B. Chase, R. W. G. C. T. of North
America, on "The Dangers of Moderate
Dririking.'? The lecture was very clear
and forcible and was received with ap
probation by the large audience assem- •
bled'. Rev. Lemon, of your city, also
delivered a lengthy address on the
"Adulteration of Liquors" the following
day. This gentleman offered statistics
to back his opinions. Hon. George W.
Lawrence, ex-CongresSiman from thhs
district, being present, was called upon''
to give his views on the questions before
the Convention, which he did with satin
faction to those present. A petition is
now circulating, the object of which. is '
to do away with the bars on the river
boats. Here I think will be a knotty ••
point, and Ifancy the temperance breth
ren will rind it up hill work to squelch •
these "dens of iniquity," as the speakers
repeatedly designated them: The Con
vention was well attended, and was in
session only two days. I may here state
that there are no licensed houses in this
place, but the boys evidently know the
"shades," and I dare say there is as'
much "benzine'.' and other intoxicating
beverages hid away in the stomachs of
many here as if there were licensed
saloons. • ~ ,
This town, many of four readers will
remember, was the scene of the• ' , great
Whiskey Insurrection" in 1795, or there
• The bycicle has found its way here.—
Geo. W. Pittock and W.S. - - Ross, of your
city, are the managers of the school.—
Owing to the Templarll* Convention, ,
business has been poor with them. They
remain a few days longer, and I trust
they will meet with such success as will
repay thinn'for their loss in the past.—
They go hence to Brownsville, Morgan
town' Uniontown, dtc.
On Tuesday last the body of young
Stockton Harvey, one of the five men
drowned by the capsizing of a skiff near
GreenhbOro, about two months ago, was
fil'und. The body. was, taken in, charge'
and conveyed to tnat place on the steain-
er "Bennet." - On the arrival of the boat
a large number of citizens assembled at
the landing:, As thiii...body was being. '

eight-o'clock the remains were followed.
to the grave by many citizens in carriages,
and on filet. "Stock," as he was-famill'
iarly called, was not over 21 years of age,
and was- the life and soul of his home.
The young men in fact all loyed him .
brother. May he rest in peace. As I
was passing the Cemetery, I noticed the
rude skiff which was the means" of the
casualty. It lays here to be seen by the -
many visiting the spot. - -
I had the pleasure of meeting Chill
Hazzard, (who does everything from a
farmer to a, laWyer, and publisber,) this.
week, and, with his affible 'assistants,
Geo. L. Mellinger. and Lute C. Collins,
gives perfect satisfaction in the postomce
and store room attached. A trip to the
east aide brought me to the paper mill of
Mr. A. C. Culoertson. I was agreeably
surprised to see such an extensive estab
lishment. The mill is one of the largest
of the kind in the country, and supplies
many houses in the east with the brown
paper box boards, made the
mill. I think I have written more than
you will see fit to publish, so I will stop,
trusting to be able to write again. •
DEFEATED CANDIDATE9 I for uongress-.
h av e, is stated, of late years been in
the habit of contesting thelseats of their.,
successitil sorn k - Petitors in order to. secure 't
the amount any voted id pay their , ex. ;

payments have amounted to $108;743 to
unsuccessful 'contestants, and to $69,653
to candidates who were unsated, making
s total of 1178,896. In ord er.to Prevent
this extravagant expendie, a bill has
been introduced Into Con gress providing
that in case of contested seats no money.
shall be paid to either caniidate, until a
decision is reached by the House, when
the salary shall be given to the member .
legally elected. No greater sum of money

,to report this' bill, and an effort will be
made for its 'passage soon after the meet..
ing of Congresa.
Tur. highest store rent paid in Broad
way, 14es , York, is that of Jaffrey's dry
goods store, corner of Leonard • street,
which brings $60,000. The highest hotet
sent is that of_the Fifth • Avenue, which,
'rates at $lOO,OOO per annum; but the most -
profitable of all its stilticei is Trihity
Building. This is occupied by offices.
It cost about $200,000, and rents for
nearly one-half that sum. Single offices
bring from $l,OOO to 2,000, and the. coal
trade is almost entirely done here. A;l`.
Stewart's property on Broadway alone is
yorth about $5,000,000. W. B. Astor's
