ir The remnitu of Henry Fowler, who
mysteriously disappeared from his fathers
hotts, near Berwick, last October, were
lately found on Summer Hill, about two
ImHos from hia resilience. It appears that
tlio committed suicide, by shooting himself
with a pistol, one being found discharged

What is there remarkable in the Regis-
Iter roan talking about "Loafers!" Man-
kind naturally talk about their own occupa
tion. Nothing disturbs tho whigs so much, as
iho raising of a liberty pole, especially if
jits hickory. Be quiet gentleman and tal;o
(it easy. The people are yet friond of lib-
I erty and liberty pules, and you cannot per-
auade them to rut them up to build log cab-
, ins of.
It will bo perceived, by a notice in to
days paper that a Democratic meeting is to
bo heldal Orangeville on Thursday the,llth
mat. We understand that one object of
the meeting is to make anangement3 for a
' -oounty democratic 4th of July celebration,
'to be held near the wire of the countv.
We hope that a largo number will be pres
ent. Democrats should bo up and doing,
and rally round the emblem of their prin
ciples, the treu of liberty.
Pinegrave Coal.- -The Advocate, pub

coal from the Pinegrove Region, arrived at

The whig Log Cabin finlie at Berwick,
last Saturday, wo understand was every
thing but cheering to the prospects of the
Harrison cause in this county. No cnthii
iasm pervaded their ranks, but all appear
ed disheartened and in dispoudenny, the
leaders raising now and then, a feeble huz-
xa which was as feebly responded to by tho
anon and boys present. It was in fact a
complete failure, neithet exciting respect
for their candidate or their cause.

passed the house, which was finally laid on
tho table and ordered to be printed. On

ticipation of it, many private bills were ma
In the House, on Wednesday, a rcsolu
tiou for the final adjournment on the 2d of
Juno, was submitted by Mr Fooel, and laid
on the table. Tho Tax bill came up in or
dcr. Mr. Snowdon's amendment to repeal
the so called Resumption bill, and require
the banks to resume on tho 1st day of Oc
tober, was pending. Messrs. Church, He-
gins, Crabb, and Hopkins, opposed it.
Mr. Snowden defended it. Mr. Hegins (of
Northd.,) moved the previous question
lost Yeas 40 Nays 43. After debate,
the previous question was again moved and
sustained, Yeas 47 Naya 42 when the
main question was put and the bill rejected,
Yeas 42 Nays 47.
The Bank bill, camo up, Mr. Snow
den moved iho previous question on 1,
which was sustained. W hen 4 was un
der consideration, Mr. duns roso to op
pose it. The previous question was called,
Yeas G4, Nays 34 and then the section
passed 5. Mr. Hegins, (of North'd.)
moved to strike out and insert a Tax bill.
While the subject was under consideration,
the Honse adjourned.
The Sen'ate. were occupied May 28, in
the discussion of the bill for the better reg
ulation of the militia, which was postpon
ed, and on the Lancaster Loan Company
bill. The latter elicited a warm debate,
continuing to the hour of adjournment with
out a question.
In the House, tho adjournment resolu
tion was postponed. The tax bill cmc up
in order. Mr. Hinchman proposed an a
mendment levying a tax of ono mill on a
dollar.on real property porsonal two mills.
Mr. Snowden moved to postpone lost.
Mr. Hamlin moved to stay collections until
1841 agreed to. Mr. Coolbaugh to
strike out real estate, rejected yeas 27, nays
03. Mr. Baily, to strikeout bank, stock,
and insert bank capital lost. The first
proposition then oaino up and was defeated
as follows : Yeas 45, Neys 47.
The whole bill was afterwards rfjcclr.d,
with all its various amendments before the
Monument to Washington. Mr. W,
Strickland, architect, proposes in tho United
States Gazette, lhat an equestrian statue of
Washington should be erected in Washing
ton Square, on the corner stone laid by La
Fayette, the statue to be constructed of An
thracile Coal Iron of this State. Mr. S,
alleges lhat this project is entirely feasible,
as castings weighing upwards of ten tons
have already been mado by our ingenious
fellow citizen Mr. Merrick.

Successful Experiment. Yesterday af
ternoon, a rather singular experiment was
mado Hy a man. approximating to the age
of sixty, of raising a canal boat which was
sunk ir. October last, in the river Delaware,
near Vine street wharf. In the first instance
he hauled a floop immediately over the
sunken boat, at low water, and thon ground
ed several boat honks; by these iio decen
ded to the boat, a depth of about thirty five
feet, and eufceeded in fastening several
chains around and to it. So soon as the
tide rises he expects the sloop to wise the
sbnken vessel with it; and tt is in this man
nor that he oxpects to convey it lo a place
of safety. The gentleman went to a great
deal of pains. His powers of staying un
tlm wamr aie siirnrisin?rlv ereat. In our
presence he remained under the surface from
six to ten minutes. Before descending he
stuffed cotton into his ears and nostrils.
