expected with so important experiment, in
spite of Iho misrepresentations and sneers of
the London press. The elections had been

War Declared against Austria.
The Daily News on Monday announced,
on the authority of a telegraphic despatch
from Paris, that the King of Sardinia had sent
40,000 men commanded by the Prince Royal
to reinforce the Milanese insurgents. Ten
thousand volunteers had left Genoa to join
the insurrection. Lombardy had offered to
annex itself to Piedmont, and a provisional
government was appointed at Milan. Among
the other deeds of the 19th, a regiment of
Croations were exterminated by the projec
tiles thrown from the windows and roofs.
The same paper on Tuesday says : The
King headed his army, and marched to Milan
where he was proclaimed King of Sardinia
and Lombardy.
Revolution in Poland Destruction of Warsaw.
The following important news is said to
have been received by telcgraphio despatch
from Dover :
Berlin, Monday night. Warsaw is in
open revolution. On Thursday last the in
habitants rose en masse and murdered several
hundreds of the Russians. The troops fled
to the fort, and from tlftnce bombarded the
town. Warsaw is in ashes. General Sobieski
formerly a captain in the Belgian artillery, is
here, and is ordered to procure 200 pieces of
cannon at any price. To-morrow the Prussian-Polish
legion departs from here at the
king's expense, in a special train. They will
ho accompanied by a great number of stu
dents. The Polish movement is fast extending. In j
many towns the Prussian eagle has been
raised, wilh cries of "Vive la regeneration de
la Pologwe!'' At Boret and at Wrcschel
they have stopped the couriers on their tra
vels. The same thing has happened at Mi
joslaw. Great agitation prevails at FlescHtm
where the Poles have proclaimed the king
dom of Poland. Tha Burgomaster, M. Lan
drath, has been dismissed and the prisoners
set at liberty. It is true that the military
have been called out, but the movement is
not less serious. The soldiers, however, only
act against the thieves. The Poles wear
their national cockade. In our own town
there is also much excitement. On the fron
tiers from Kilisch to Peru, tents are establish
ed for the Russian troops. Gazette de Brcs.
ait, March 25.
From Prussia we learn that the army of
the Caucasus is to be diminibhod, and has
received strict orders to confine itself to the
defensive. Sehamyl has established a regu.
lar estafetle service with Constantinople, in
order to ob!ain the earliest intelligence of
what passes in Europe. His intention is to
assume the defensive as soon as hostilities
hall have commenced in Poland. It must
not be forgotten that there are from 00,000
to 80,000 Poles in the Caucasus.
The stateof Southern Russia is very un
easy. The Cossacks are greatly irritated by
the harshness with which the Czar has trea
ted them. The province of Kusan, situated
between the White Sea, the Ural Mountains,
and the Wolga, is in a state of great excite
ment. The four millions of Tartars who in
habit it are eagerly expecting an opportunity
of overthrowing the iron yoke of the Emperor.
Alarming Stat of Ireland.
It has been rumored that the Irish govern
ment is in possession of information of a very
serious character, not less than the spirit of
disaffection among the constabulary. The
republican spirit is spreading rapidly among
the classes in Dublin. Letters from Cork,
Watorford and Kilkenny, say that the me
chanics in these cities are arming, and in
daily expectation of hearing of a wising in
the metroKlis.
The Dublin Evening Packet, of Thursday,
gives an alarming account of the stale of Ire
land. We take from it the following ex
tracts :
On every side we hear of insurrectionary
preparations. Signal fires, their origin and
-motive beiug a mystery, are simultaneously
.lighted on the hills of Tipperary, Clare, and
Limerick. Confederate Clubs bold their sit
tings from night to-night, and the members
are arming themselves.
It is generally circulated and such rumors
do not arise without foundation that the peo
ple are largely engaged in the manfacture of
. various kinds of offensive weapon. Rille

greater portion of the army. All the neces
sary arrangements with tho Governments of

popularity of the King is increasing. The

In Hungary, the concessions made by the
Emperor were just in time to prevent the
proclamation of a republic. While the mag
nates renounced their privileges in the As
sembly of Presburg, on the 18th, a more for-,
inidab'lo revolution was going on in Pnsth,
where 100,000 of the new National Guards
assembled and conceited tho establishment
of a republic, which they did not, however,
proclaim. Things looked very serious till the
news of the constitutional concessions of the
Emperor arrived at Trcslh, where tho in
formation was enthusiastically received.
Ruia, Germany, ou l Poland.
Austria and Prussia continue tranquil, but
there appears every probability of a war be
tween United Germany and Russia, Poland
being the battle-field. The great object of
the Germans is to intcrposo an independent
nation between themselves and Russia, and
this object is distinctly avowed in the follow
ing article which appears in the Cologne Ga
zette .--'If we look carefully at our position
towards foreign states, nothing is more cer
tain than that we shall shortly be in open
war with Russia. One month hence at the
latest, we must be in the lield. The will of
the German pscple has pronounced itself in
favor of the re-estnbliehment of Poland. Prus
bia will have to give up a portion of her ter
ritory to attain tho object, an intermediate
kingdom between Germany and Russia. This
movement has already commenced. A pro
visional committee has already been formed
at Posen for the regeneration of Poland, with

The following, from ihe Free American of
the 6th of April, shows that Gen. Bruno is ta
king time by the forelock :
War! The Armistice broken by the Mexi
emu. Letters were received here yesterday,
stating that the Mexicans under Gen. Bruno,
taking advantage of the departure of Commo
dore Perry for Vera Cruz, and that of the
gunboat left to guard the coast between Pa
'izada and Laguna, plundered those places,
while Com'r Bigelow had gone to Yucatan,
wilh tho intention of protecting the unfortu
nate women and children, who had retired to
the sea-shore, being driven out of their homes
by the ludiuns.
This Bruno, who has given a new proof of
his cowardice, has always avoided a fight
with tho Americans. Ho never could be
found when our seamen lanued on the coast ;
but as soon as he rmds-ihe generosity of an
American commander makes it a duty for
him to go and protect unfortunate women and
children, then, and only then he shows him
self! . . . KV-C ... .-J
As a robber, Bruno is a great man as a
coward he is still greater !
The most curious part of the affair is, that
Bruno pretends that he was in search of Corn
Perry, when on this last excursion ! and, un
fortunately for us and fortunately for him, ho
arrived at Patizada after Com. Perry had left,
and was at Vera Cruz.
This brave lellow arrives always too late
to show his valor I But ho carried off the
child of an old man, who has, it seems, trea

an old man of his sole consolation in hit old

Of Westmoreland County.
The Senate of the United Slates has pass
ed a bill to enlarge their privileges decla.
ring that Senators have a right to frank
when they please as much as they please
and where they please, whether endorsed
by them or not.
Now it seems these Senators who get
eight dollars a day, and their postage free,
can act very promptly when they are per
sonally interested, but the outrageous law
of last s?3.sion, which rc-enac ted the charge
of postage on newspapers under 30 miles,
for the benefit of the editors of city papers,
who carry most of their papers free on the
rail roads, they can find no time to act on.
Now it is time and high time for. country
editors to take this jnatter into serious con
sideration and pledge themselves neither to
countenance or support any Senator or
member of Congress who will neglect, or
refuse to act in favor of the repeal of the
present odious law. We see that in Wash
ington city, and in the large cities, an ef
fort is ma!un to repeal the postage on pa
pers, for any distance. To this, the whole
country press is opposed. The city press
have already a too great a monopoly of the
business. W are willing however that
papers should circulate free of pastae,
within the bounds of each congressional
district. Let our members of Congress, at
tend, a little more promptly, to the inter
ests of their constituents, instead of their
own, or they may find that their constitu
ents may attend to them. And let the
Press speak out boldly and unanimously
upon this subject and they will be heard.
The Washington correspondent of the
Ledger has the following on this subject :
The bill which has lately pssed the Sen
ate declares the right of tho person to use it
at any place whatever, whether present or
not. If this becomes a law, what is to pre
vent the distribution and use of franked en
velopes in every part of the Union 1 nay,
what is to prevent the sale of 'franked en
velopes for half price, and thus in a great de
gree destroy tho Post-office revenues.
It is somewhat remarkable in the laws,
whether made to "limit tho use" or "correct
the nbus'3" of tho franking privilege, or "to
prevent frauds on the revenues" of the De
pariment, each one, from the first to the pre
sent day, has enlarged the privilege, and, what
is still more strange, there is no penalty im
posed for a false certificate of a "public docu
ment," by a person entitled to it. "Chips
and whetstones" may be franked as public
documents, and no penalty attaches for the
falsehood, but a Postmaster, in the best exer
cise of his judgement, honestly attempting
to enforce the law and to guard tho revenues
against fraud, is, by this law to be sued in
the Federal Court for a penalty of $100, if he
makes a mistake, and charges postage on a
letter which he believes not to have been
properly franked. The franking privilege
had better be at once extended to every body
The extensive use of this privilege is now the
great impediment to a still further reduction
in the rates of postage. The Postmaster Gen
eral, we understand, does not hesitate to de
clare that an uniform rate of live cents may
be established, if this privilege, is dispensed
with. Instead of enlarging the privilege, and
removing all restraints imposed to prevent
f laude, would it not be better to restrict tho'right
and regulate its UBe, so as soon to give to the
people at largo the real benefits of the cheap
postage system ? The Presidential election
is now approaching, and the passage of such
a law would give to each party the use of the
mails free of postage during the canvass, and
probably consume half its revenues.
O" We shall lay before our readers, next
week, a portion of the exciting debate, in
the U. S. Senate, on the slavery question.
The debate originated on Mr. Hale't motion
to bring in a bill to make the district liable
for any property that might be destroyed
by a riot or mob, in consequence of the
riotous gathering and threats to destroy the
office of the "National Era," an abolition
paper, published at Washington and which
was occasioned by the recent kidnapping
of about 40 ilavea at Washington,
Wo regret to state that a most destructive
fire occurred in Danville, on Tuesday night
last, which destroyed the block of new
three story buildings, known as tho Mont
gomery buildings. Among tho sufferers
wo are sorry to find our friend Cook of the
Danville Democrat, who was able to save
nothing but hit subscription book trom tho
flames. He was but partially insured.
He hopes, however, in a few weeks, thnt
the Democrat will rise like a Phcnix from
its ashes, and makes its regular weekly ap
pearance, which we know his energy and
ability will enable him to accomplish, and
we trust this fiery ordeal may prove to
him, a future blessing. Tho following, is
from the
Danville Democrat Extra.
Wednesday, April 16, 1848.
We aro indebted to the kindness of Col
Best, of the "Intelligencer" for Iho use of his
printing matcrinl, to announce to our ul-
scribers, that the printing oilier) of the "Dan
villo Democrat," together wilh the whole
magnificent block, known as the "Motitgo
inery Building," was totally consumed by
fire this morning between 1 and 2 o'clock.
Tho fire originated in tho Drug Sloro of
Mr. M. C. Crttr.n, and before any assistance
could be rendered, or the alarm had been
very generally given, the whole building was
in flumes, entirely beyond the control of hu
man aid, ami in less than two hours presen
ted a gloomy nins of smouldering ruins.
Besides our printing office, there were a
number of stores and other establishments in
the building, as follows:--The
Drug Store of M. C. GRir.n Total
loss. Insured to the amount of S2000 in the
Lycoming Mutual Fire Insurance Company
The Dry Goods, Hardware and Grocery
Store of A. F. Rcssel. But few of the goods
were saved. Insured in tho same Company,
The loss above the Insurance on both these
stores is considerable.

by Charles Sholes as an eating establish

Mr. Thomas Stevenson also sustained con-
Mcrable damage on account of the removal
of his stock of ready made clothing.
The amount of our printing materials was
but partially insured and our loss is heavy.
Nothing but our subscription books was res
cued from the flames, and our day-books
ledger, files, kc. have all become a prey to
the devouring element. As we intend forth
with to procure a new press, types, &.c. we
call those who know themselves indebted to
us for subscription jop-work or advertising, to
lend us a helping hand. Our sleeves are rol
led up, and in a few weeks, at furthest, we
trust Ihe ' Danville Democrat" will again
make its regular weekly oppearnce. Our sub
scribers will, no doubt, bear with us on ac
count of the necessary temporary delay.
05s Mail Arrangements. We stated
last week, upon what we presumed good
authority, that there would be a fast line
from FottsviUe, through Danville to Wil
liamsport, in 21 hours, from Philadelphia,
and that the line from Northumberland,
would connect with the Cattawissa line,
and run through according to the old sched
ule. We have, however, learned from
Mr. Kapp, one of the proprietors, that they
may or may not run a separate and distinct
line from Danville, at their option, but have
not yet determined to do so. The only
difference between the old and new ar
rangements, is, that the mail will leave
Northumberland at six in the morning, and
arrive at Pottsville at six in the evenins. a-
bout three hours earlier than formerly.
KF" Judge Anthony's decision, in a re
cent case, in this place, that Mail pronrie-
tors are not liable for money lost in a trunk
out only for clothing Sic., seems to have
attracted some attention. The principle,
we mink, is a sound one, and will be sus
E? Victor E. Piollett, who was re
jected as Paymaster in the Army, by the
senate, has again been nominated by the
President, for that station. With what
prospect of "better luck next time," we
cannot even conjecture. Mr. Piollett is
the son-in-law of Jesse Miller, secretary of
the commonwealth.
17 Tub Weather. Rain is much
wanted and has been anxiously looked for,
during the last week. We have had fair
and cloudy prospects, for several days and
nights past, but they have all evaporated
into sun and moonshine.

The arrival of every steamer brings newi
of tho extension of the revolution, now in
progress, in Europe. If the spirit of de
mocracy, which has so suddenly over spread
Europe, within a month past, should con
tinue short time longer, such things as
Kings and Queens will hardly find "a local
habitation and a name" and will be ranked
with things that were. Probably the most
singular feature in the progress of these e
vents, is, the fact that the King of Prussia
has become the leader in these popular
movements. The king has exhibited, in
this, more tact and judgment than the world
has generally given him credit for. Find
ing despotism unpopular, he wisely adopts
liberalism. He has espoused the cause of
Poland, which Kingdom was most wickedly
dismembered by Russia, Prussia and Aus
tria, and the territory divided between
them. The Poles, who have bravely strug
gled against fate, for the last half century,
nre now likely to realize their long cher
ished hop" a restoration of their govern
ment. The Russians have ruled them with
a rod of iion. Warsaw, the Capitol, has
again thrown off the Russian yoke and its
destruction by the Russians soon followed.
Nicholas, Emperor, of Russia, is gathering
his forces ready for any emergency. A
general war in Europe seems almost inevi
table, and the great battle ground will no
doubt be Poland. Prussia and Austria will
no doubt, peaceably disgorge their share of
the spoil, in order to save what they are
entitled to, while Russia will be compelled
to yield to the force of circumstances.
Lombardy, in Italy, has thrown off the
Austrian yoke and attached itself to Sardin
ia. Savoy has declared itself a Republic.
In England, affairs are not much more
promising for king-craft. The Chartist
movement has so alarmed the government,
that they scarcely know how to act. Ire
land is ripe for revolution, and ready to
act at a moments warninz.
Mail Routks. S. H.Lloyd, Esq., of
Williamsport and Robert Bailey, Esq., of
Jersey Shore, have the route from Harris
burg to Williamsport. The mail to be car
ried in a one horse wagon.
The route from this place to Danville,
by way of Snydertown and Rushville, has
been allotted to Amos E. Kapp, of Nor
thumberland. Mr. Kapp, is also interested
in the route from Northumberland to Potts
ville. The route from this place to Mil
lersburg, has been allotted, we believe, to
Mr. Clark of Millcwburr.
K7 Post Office Revenue. We were
informed a few days since by Mr. Kapp
that his receipts, by drafts on the different
Post offices, were now as great as they
were under the old rates of postage.
Militia Trainings. We were in
error last week, in saying that militia train
ing have been abolished. The bill has pas
sed the Senate, but the House would nut
pass it. Politicians find at these trainings,
a fine opportunity for electioneering, and
will not, therefore readily consent to aban
don them.

Arrival of Gin. Kearney and Mr. Sevier
Elections in Vera CruxThe Meeting of
CongressRatification of the Treaty Doubt
ful, IfC. tfC.
The U. S. steamship New Orleans, Capt.
Edward Auld, arrived yesterday forenoon
from Vera Cruz, whence sho sailed on the
evening of tho 9lh inst. She arrived at Vera
Cruz from this port on Thursday, the Glh inst.,
and landed her distinguished passengers,
Gen. Kearney and the Hon. Mr. Sevier, amid
salvos of artillery from tho Castle, the frigate
and the forts in the city.
Gen. Kearney was installed as Governor of
tho State of Vera Cruz, on Saturday, the 8 th
inst. He was to receive the troops in and
around the city on Monday last.
Mr. Sevier left Vera Cruz on tha 8;h inst.
for the city of Mexico, under tho escort of
Cnpt. Tilghman's command, about sixty
strong. We learn from Capt. Auldlhat Santa
Anna did not sail till Wednesday, the 5:h
inst. From the Arco Iris, we learn that he
took his passage on the Spanish brig Martino-
Capt. Auld informs ns that it was supposed
at Vera Cruz that Gen. Scott and suite and
Mr. Trist would leave Mexico ubont the 5th
instant, "the Court having adjourned its sit
ting to the United States;" but in our report
of the proceedings of the 3d, we find no an
nouncement of such an adjournment.
During the week ending tho 1st inst. there
were 56 Deputies nnd 19 Senators present at
Queretaro. The Monitor says it required on
ly 15 more Deputies and 3 Senators to form
a quorum to proceed to business; but we re
gret to say that some members of Congress
had left Queretaro under pretext of reluctance
to vote for the ratification of the treaty. From
the very earnest and indignant manner in
which the Star mentions this subject, we in
fer that the gravest apprehensions are enter
tained lest a sufficient number of factious De
puties should withdraw to prevent a quorum
from assembling.
The Mexican Bonds. The five millions
dollars in Mexican bonds which the house of
Manning & Mackintosh expected to receive
in discharge of their loan of 000.000 to Santa
Anna who at the time was ut the head of
the supremo government have been dis
posed of at one million one hundred thousand
dollars. The purchaser is Senor Berstegan.
He pays S-500,000 in cash, S 100,000 in instal
ments, and 400,000 in bands. Tha latter
may possibly be had for S50,000, which will
bring the whole cost of the bonds recently
advertised for sale at 8750.000.
Santa Anna, before he took his departure
from Mexico, wrote a farewell address to his
fellow-citizens, which the Pieayune has trans
lated. It is a long and very well written pa
per, recounting all the sacrifices the writer
had made for his country, the disasters he
had met with in his various efforts to sustain
the honor of the country, and the causes of
them. Th? internal discords of the Stales,
the want of unanimity among the various
factious, the inadequacy of the means that
he was furnished wilh, aro given by him as
the causes of his numerous defeats, while ho
points with evident pride and satisfaction, to
his extraordinary inarch upon General Tay
lor at Buena Vista, his rapid reorganization
of the army after that defeat, and his meet
ing the enemy at Cerro Gordo. He says his
duty was "to fight, not to conquer." The
world will certainly do him the justice to say
that in the latter particular he faithfully per
formed his duty. The defeat at the capital
and the overthrow of the third army that he
had organized, he attributes altogether to
disobedience and want of discipline in the
army. Ho fought as long as the national dig
nity required. His enemies then raised a
shameful clamor against him, and to conci
liate the country he abandoned power. The
assertion that he sustained war only for pri
vate ends, he indignantly repels ; it was to
prevent tho losses of territory and the dishon
or and ruin of Mexico's political existence.
The war has terminated, and with it all h:s
hopes for the nation. He deals in dismal
forebodings of the future for Mexico, and
finds satisfaction and a confirmation of his
views irt tlw American capital, havo raised
their voices to warn them of their danger.
Ho calls those individuals ' lovers of justice
and humanity." The treaty is condemned
as a thing to bo "forever execrated,' by
wuicn two-thirds of thi national territory
has been sold for a dish of lentils. A bh ame
fill and absurd armistice has been sanctioned
to consummate the iniquity. Hera his grj.f
quite overcomes him, and hecinrhides in the
following mournful language :
"What recours?, therefore, remains, cili
zens, for him who only returned to his coun-
ty to satisfy the public wishes and to fight in
support of the noble cause ogainst the foreign
enemy I hat is he to do who is pursued
in every direction? Retire to a distant land
to bewail the immense misfortunes of the re.
public, since political passions and nallrv in-
terests have'succeeded in exalting themselves
over tna holy cause of the country.
"Mexicans ! One of Ihe leaders in your in-
uepenuence, the most devoted to your cood
name one who has hid glory of offering lo
me li"putlio trophies snatched from the fo
reign invaders one who has fought aguinst
them, overcome a thousand difficulties oi o
who has shed his blood to sustain your rights
in fine, your most faithful friend, bids you
his last farewell."
