We are inloitned that the United Stiles Mail,
on the route from Willimsport to Money, was
robbed on lust Saturday night, not far from Mon

buggy, intended for the purpose, being lashed on
behind. It was not discovered till he reached the
next Post Olfice to have it changed.
It wae then found that the straps fastening the
Hag, some six or eight, had all been cut. It was
about twelve o'clock at night, windy, dark and
rainy. The robbery was undoubtedly committed

We perceive by the "Washington Union," thai
the "National Whig" has been mustered out of
service, by General Taylor ; and, having shullled
off this mortal coil, it is but fair to say, it has
gone to that bourne, from whence im traveller
returns. There are now, therefore, in Ihe cap
ital, an organ proer, the "Republic," and a
emi organ, (if wc may be allowed tho expres
sion, tho "National Intelligencer."
This latter paper seems unwilling to play the
second fiddle to the "Republic," and therefore
sets upon its own account; advocating (he
claims of men to olllce, different from thoc cho
Ben liy the Organ, and, mirabile diet" I the "In
telicncer" tucceedH, and the "11 public" comes
out seeimd bet. Wonder if the one is not the
organ of General, (President Taylor,) and the
other, of the cabinet ? If so, and they keep on
voting as heielofore, these same "men in Buck
ram" w ill vote tfie Republic out of existence.
Either the cabinet must do something with
General Taylor, or, General Taylor must do some
thing with the cabinet. It is an old and quaint
proverb, that too many cook's spoil the broth,
and we think some body's broth is likely to be
spoiled at Washington. We aie of opinion, from
present appearances, that the President will, one
of these fine days, signify to his advisers, that
their services are no longer n ceded. At any rate,
the "end is not yd."
We predicted immediately after the election,
that the very success of tho Tarty, would, prove
its ultor destinction ; and it is about to be reali
zed. In '5?, as in Ms, they must again come to
a fair fight with the Democrary, upon questions
of policy and principle, and none can doubt the
result. The administration arc constantly grow

Carefully pirk up and destroy all the dropping
beneath your peach, and apple trees. On examin
ing these you will find that in almost every rase
they contain a small worm or maggot closely t n
sconced near the stone or core, and which, if not
destroyed, will obey the i istmctive laws and ap
pelancies of its peculiar tribe, and lay the founda
tion for llie future reproduction and propagation
of its kind. Hy gathering the fallen fruit every
day, and feeding them to swine or other animals,
this evil, already in many sections a serious one
to the fruit grower, will be prevented.

asserted to bo a sure preventive' of their attacks.

The Pittsburg Morning Post, which is altogeth

ting always the one which first named Mr. Gam

siastically of that good man's nomination. They
are the sentiments of tl.cpri ss andpiople through
out the Commonwealth. We could fill our col.
urns with similar elrarls, and wishwehan space
so to do, but must forego that pleasure, by pub
lishing the following as a fair sample.
Mr. Haiipkr, cnys :

Slate Convention became known i with
out a parallel. The Democratic Press re
spond to the nomination of Mr. Camhi.e,
in the must glorious spirit, which removes

'' He' whistles as be goes for ant of thought."
I am not sure that whistling i proof pos
itive that a man dont think. It U said tliat
some people whistle as tltey pass a grave
yard, because they arc afraid. This may
be a fact. There is no doubt but that some
people arc afraid, and by whistling try to
drown every other kind of a noise, and
thus, in very trying situations, keep a stiff
upper lip. Now there are a great many
men awl some women, who cant whistle.
In fact i it is no easy thing to do it up gen
leely and scientifically. In the first place,
you've to fix your mouth in just such a
pucker, else you will throw out too much
wind or loo little. Then you must have a
proper motion of the piece of music you
are about to perform, so as neither to throw
into it too much vim or force, nor, al the
same time, to play it too languidly.
Hut I dldn t llllend to write a disquisi-
,; . i ., , ,

but merely intended to say, that many

Now, when I go along the road in com
pany with myself, I generally think, be
cause I am absolutely too lazy to sing or
I have a great mind to tell you what I
think about some times, fur I am pretty
sure it would tickle you all to peiees some
days, and then again 'twould make you
feel amazing sorry. Some singular and
original thoughts pass through people's
heads, but are not noted down, and the
next moment another sweeps its foreru
ners into oblivian forever. If there were
more thinking done by the cominuniiy,
half the amount of reading would give
twice the amount of knowledge. Some
people never think of tho fitness of things.
They scarcely know they are here, or if
they do, they never think any more on
ihe subject. They go whistling or singing
through the world and when they get to
the end of the journey, they cant tell
whether they have been travelling through
a Paradise or a Prairie.

From the Luzerne Democrat.
It may not be amiss to state the way and
manner in which democray of this county
was represented in the democratic Slate
Convention, recently held at Pittsburg. S.
II. Puterbauch of this place, and Samuel
Henry, Nescopeck.were appointed delega
tes to the State Convention about a year
ago, by the Luzerne county Democratic
Convention, (no Senatorial delegate being
claimed,) and we supposed, until recently
that these men, and these only, would
east the vote of Luzerne County, in the
State Convention. Du). to our utter surp
rise, and we suppose, too, of tiintyninc
hundreaths of the Democrats of this Coun
ty upon reading the proccodingof the Con
vention, wc see the names of S. P. Cod

tative Delegates, and Wm.Koonsrepresen

what authority he could act as Senatni ial
Delegate : or by what autnority Mr. Coll
ings or Mr. Turner occupied seats in the
convention, we don't know. Soma few
weeks previous to the assembling of the
State Convention, the democrats of Colum
bia County met in county convention, and
nominated a Represenlative and Senator
ial Delegate and not a single word is saild
here or else where against it, although there
was ample lime to make an amicable arr
angement of the matter between the two
counties, or, to have called a convention
of this county and nominted a Senator
This is a kind of hokus-pokus that the
democracy of Luzerne county has been
subject to, we trust, for the last time at
least for years to come. It is in this way
