8083 ovor other portions for fail road and cv
nal transportation and last, though not by
any means the least, tho immenso water
power available in this section, as giving
us advantages possessed but by few. It is
truo we intended to carry the impression
that water power, when il could bo used in
the ncighbothoodof railroad or canal trans
portation, Was superior to steam, in every
sense of tho word, being both safer and
cheaper. If this bo undenting the ad
vantages of that vicinity," so be it. That
it is placing Fishing Creek region, if true,
far ubovo them,' every ono will acknowl
edge. Bui we contend thatit is only placing
ilio true value on al!, without undcraling
the advantages" of any. Wo shall pnrsuu
this subject hereafter and show the actual
advantage water power has over steam.

"Wiicn we penned the article in our pa
per some two or three weeks since, under
the above caption, we little thought of bring
V ing down upon us the ire of our neighbor
in Danville, or of being accused of exercis
ing a spirit of "envy," never dreaming but
that we had as goud a right to set forth the
transcendent advantages" of cur town
and vicinity, as our friends in neighboring
Tillages; and wc have yd to ham that il
displays something very much like envy'
to dit so. Our remarks were made in per
fect good feeling, and in perfect truth, and
we think ho who could tako exceptions to
thorn must have corns on his toes, or at
least be a liltte goaty, nnd possessed of a
f feeling, not only " very much like," but in
l fact, of "envy" and jealousy too For out---
eelves, wc care not how much Dattvillu is
extolled by those interested, or how many
i furnaces are in anticipation of being built
- there, the moio tho merrier, as it wiill add
' to the business of our lumber friends in the
townships of Greenwood, Fishing Creek;
8ugarloaf and Jackson, bordering on Fish
ing creek and its tributaries, 33 from that
flection, most of their lumber is obtained;
but, wc at the same lime, claim the right of
showing the real advantages possessed in
the vicinity of Fishing CreeV, for manufac
turing iron, without being accused of dis
playing envioti? feelings. The Danville
people succeeded bv putting, in procuring
tho location of tho Courts of the county in
that placo " very much" to the injury of the
public; and if they can now puff and steam"
their town into a manufacturing village, by
making capitalists believe that they are in
the centre of tho iron region, they will un
doubtedly do so; but unless we arc much
,nist:il:r'n in tho sinus of the times, the Wa-
iter power of the rtal centre, t-j wit;
..of Fishing Creek, and its tributaries, will
rfnon cool their stosm, put out their fires,
.and draw tl;e business of tho county to its
k proper and natural location J lit paper
in Danville is therefore " very much" mis
tukon in supposing our article was "design
ed to underato tho advantages of that vi
cinity." So far from it, they were calcula-
i ted to gi.vo them their true value. What

Mr. Wucil,
The House havd boBri several days en
gaged upon a resolution inlffltlitccd by the
commilico on banks, requiring the ba8 '
resume ececie payments. Amendments
upon amendmsnts have been offered, de
bated, and voted down, and there appears
to bo not co much prospect now of the
house agreeing upon an early resumption,
as there was at the commencement of the
debate. Some arc for a full and immediate
resumption others fur giving tho banks
months to prepare others for a gradual re
sumption, commencing with five dollar bills,
and then tens, &c. another clas3 still ap
pear to have iither no settled policy, or act
to prevent any thing whatever, being done
upon tho subject. This diversity of opinion
I am afraid, will prevent any definite action
upon tho subject. As to any restrictions
being placed upon tho present banks that
will guard tho rights of tho people against
their mercenary operations, I have but little
hopc.lhcre being too manymombers who arc
so deeply interested in banks dint they will
not allow any measure of the kind to pass
that will tend to conflict with their own in
terest, I hope I may be mistaken, but time
however, will determine. No other sub
ject of importance lias been acted on in the
house but what you have already announced.
Tho senate, during the past week, have
confirmed several nominations made by the
Governor, of President and Associate Judg
es, thcio being no opposition to any other
than Judge Porter; and tho opposition in
his case arose from a determination on the
part of Penrose anil company, to revenge
upon him for his independent and unflinch
ing course in the riot cases, nnd during the
buck shot war." Hut it was no go.
Their bitter invectives fell harmless at his
feet, and he passed through tho ordeal un
scathed. Yours, &u.
P. R. Gince writing the above, the bill
requiring the banks to resume specie pay
ments on the 15lh February, lias passed to
a third reading in tho hoiistu. It is general
ly supposed that it will pass upon its third
reading to-morrow.
it Wil) doubtless be gratifying o the-De
mocracy of Pennsylvania to. learn j guys tho
Keystone, that litis iliclingulsed champion
of her cause on tho floor of the United
Stales Senate, lias again won for himself
' golden opinions" from all mciij in his re
cent encounter with Mr.OLAYt oh the mer
its of the bill for the establishment of an
Independent National Treasury. Mr. Bu
chanan has again s)iown himself liioro
than a match for the Kentucky oratot, whoso
Itansccndaut abilities none will picsumo to
question, nnd in this instance came off de
cidedly tho conqueror. For a full descrip
tion of Mr. Buchanan's splendid effbf tj wc
refer to tho letter of our Washington cof
respondent, whose views are fully confirm
by numerous oilier letter-writers of both
parties. The correspondent of tho Balti
more American, whose opinions generally
arc distinguished fur candor aud fairness,
pronounces it, without exception, " tho -blest
defence of the Sub-Tieasury system,
which has been made by any administra
tion member." Pennsylvania lias indeed
abundant reason to be proud of a son, wio
sheds such lustre on the cause to which
she is attached, in .the councils of the na
tion, and who has attained a place on the
piniclc of fame, to which but few may just
ly aspire.
