CHILD ATTACKED AND BITTEN BY A

mired in the house of Mr. Wm. Crawford
(formerly , keerer of the old Si. Charles.)
on . Penneyleaning? Avenue. last Mon
day night. A young daughter of his, a
mere infant, was lying in the bed asleep,
when• she was attacked by a huge Nor
way rat, which began to inflict bites on
her arm and hand. A little boy in the
same bed anoke and endeavored to drive
the animal away but he too was bitten in
three or lour placer on the hand. The
girl's hand from the wrist to tbe end of
the thumb was bitten in a dozen difrtir
eel places and she is qnite seriously in
jured. •The screams of the children at.
treated the mother to the bed and nut un
til then did the vile beast leave them.—
He was afterwards caught and summary
vengeance executed on him.

a thousand expressions of confidence.
While they were doing this, he was
compassing her ruin. During a residence

his infernal purposes. After the girl had
been sent off to school her reverend se

by Robert Tempt', and that gentleman,
with 16gsrs bteihens, of Georgia; 'nil

Mr. Gentry, of Tennessee, thus preventing
the election of Mr. Winthrop. When Mr.
Gentry arrived on the , following Monday,
he :withdrew his name, and , then Tootnbe
and company voted for Mr. Moorhead,
Kentucky. The Democrats dropped Cobb
and took tip William 3. Brown, running
his vote up to within two of being elected.
Brown had sueceeded in getting some Free
Soil votes, but the trick was exposed and
he was dropped.
Subsequently Messrs. Winthrop and
Wilmot withdrew their names, and voting
ensued, with no concentration by anipar

the highest vote on the fourth trial should

Financial Condition of the Com-
lICTIt will be seen by the statement
given below, that the fiscal concerns of the
State, under . the present Administration,
are in a very prosperous condition. It has
been thtioustom of our Democratic (cicada
when they were in power, to utter every
now and then a triumphant blast of the
trumpet in praise ofthe Executive or State
Treasurer—attributing to the unparalleled
exertions of those officern . whatever indica
tion of prosperity :night be exhibited by
the annual examination of ' the Treasury.
We do not desire to imitate them in this
respect, but only to call : attention :o the
with fact that all the giants did not die out with
the last Democratic ,Administration, and
that there are still a few !eft who have,
tome financial ability, and are competent
to take care of the pecuniary interests of
the Commonwealth. Thu statement is as

FROM KANSAS.—The New York
papers have voluminous correspondence
from Kansasoo the 4th inst. No attack
had" been made upon Lawrence' but the ex
',gement among the people was on the in•
crease. One of the correspondents says
the invaders' camp contains nearly a thou
sand armed men, who are loud in their
threats against the "Abolition City." as
Lawrence is called. The citizens of Law
rence have been making no great prepara
tions to meat the mob, whose blustering,
indeed, they treat with proper contempt.
They are simply on the defensive, and
therein will resist to death. The Missou
rians. it seems, have dispatched their u/u -
rn/gum. but with all their fierce . display of
powei and pretension, they will never bo
able to bully the Free State men of Kan
sas into submission. A • public meeting
has been held in Lawromie, at which the
representations and excuses- made by Gov.
SHANNON, for calling out the militia, were
declared to be wholly false.
LATER.—A telegraphic dispatch from
St. Louis. dated the; 19th inst., states the
troubles at Lawrence had been settled, by
a promise °gibe part of the people of that
'place to deliver up the illedged offenders ,
against thelaws, and agreeing to recog
nize Gov. Shannon. They refuse, howev
er, to give up their arms. The Missouri
volunteers had disbanded, and were re 7

This despatch. though evidently defec

The anti-Amorican , papers are begin

subject the Lonisvillo Journal remarks :

is and ever- has been my motto. and I
cannot for my - life see • how editors can
sustain themselves in their business, with
out an advance in the,price of publishing ,
and advertising. Their rents are much
higher now than a few years ago; paper,

higher—lood and raiment_ higher—think

can they live without proportional prices
for their labor? It would seem almost
impossible, and yet wo hear of no strike
for an advance. Perhaps they are afraid
to make the venture, not knowing what
the consequences might be.
Such being the case, it is evidently the
duty of their patrons to, strike for them,
adding, say fifty per cent, to the present
rates. If they will do this, (and I think
they will, this useful class of men will get

COURT DOESOB,—.The Special Court

met at 8 o'clock, on Sunday morning, to re
ceive the verdict, of the jury in the Lilly and
Hafer case. But two cases were disposed of
additional to those mentioned last Week,—
The remainder of the list was continued.
Elinfbeth Trimmer vs. Jacob 8. Hollinger
--Summons in trespass for taking, carrying
and driving away from the premises of PIA'.
certain personal property, consisting of a wa
gon, two horses, three cows, one calf, &c.—
Hollinger became the assignee° of David Trim
mer under a deed of voluntary assignment for
the benefit of creditors in 1853. The estate
being thought to be. solvent, $3OO worth of
property was appraised, and set aside for the
benefit of Trimmer. A few days after, Trim
mer transferred the property so 'appraised to
his daughter Elizabeth,. (the Plaintiff in this
action,) in consideration of wages due her for,
having workedfor him and his family over
age, and also iu considemtioil that she would
attend to the future support ofkinufeif and wife.
Upon the sale of the real estate the estate
warrfound to be insolvent, and the Assignee
claimed the property appraised, it having been
left, as was alledged, with the' Assignor upon'
condition that, in case the estate should prove
insolvent, the yroperty should be passed over
to the Assignee. Elizabeth Trimmer claimed'
legal possession under the transfer from her
father, and refused to surrender it The As
signor went to the premises, re-took the prop
erty above named, and sold it and applied the
proceeds to the claims of Trimmer's creditors.
Whereupon this action. Verdict for Plaintiff
$273 23 and costs.
John Lilly vs. William Hafer. An no
tion to recover damages for a suit alledg
ed to have been brought without probable
Buse, &c. This case was somewhat novel
and peculiar, there probably being no similar
case on record in the Courts of Pennsylvania,
and as such commanded a good deal of interest.
Hafer ROM time ago brought suit against
Lilly on a Note for $2OO given in 1846, but a
baudoued the'suit, not appearing on the arbi
trntion and suffering n non-suit. The present
action was brought b/ Lilly for the recovery
of damages for expenses, trouble, &c., incurred
by him in attending the former snit, alledging
that the note referred to lied been forged, and
that in attempting to recover it Hafer had
been guilty of instituting a meliciolis suit, with
out probable cause ■ &c. The note was not
produced in this trial,,the defendant alledging
that it had been lost. Plaintiff called a num
ber of witnesses who had.seeb the note at the
arbitration to prove that the signature was not
Mr. Lilly's. Defendant maintained that Plai
ntiff's witnesses were mistaken. in. thnirAndr.
mint bf the sigetiitire--that the note'was a
genuine ontygiyOiLilly, for a balance due

prove the execution of the note. The case
was given tuilitOury at a late bout on Sat

that remarkable people. There are but few
nations of which so little is known as the Ja
panese. For long ages they have been cutoff'
from "outside barbarians," by a rigidly enfor
ced. system of non-intercourse, and yet they
have attained a very high degree of excellence
in many of the fine arts, and supply fabrics of
rare elegance and finish. The visit of Corn.

Maraeken's Invaluable Remedy The Pennsylvimiii ,Telegraph.
FOR THE RESTORATION A PRESERVATION ENLOGED FORM--REDUCED TERMS
OF THE HUMAN HAIR.
AFTER man y years of laborious research
and expe riment, I have the gratification
to announce to those of the public who may bo
afflicted with baldness or premature grey hair,
that I have succeeded in the preparation of an
article that is an infallible remedy for either of
these disorders. For a considerable length
of time I have been in the habit of using it up
on my own customers, and in no instance has
it failed to render the most entire satisfirction.
Having long entertained the belief that, in a
vast majority of cases, Baldness and prema
ture greyness were induced by disease, or want
of vigor and vitality of the scalp, rather than
being the necessary consequence of mere cc
cumulation of years.
My whole attention was directed to the din.
covery of some preparation, which, by rumor
ing the dandruff and other foreign matter
which, in spite of the utmost precaution, will
collect upon the scalp, would restore to this
part all its vigor anal vitality, and thus remove
the great cause of both these diseases. In
offering this preparation to the public, I have
full confidence that it will not disappoint the
expectations of many who may feel inclined to
give it a fair and impartial trial. It more ef
fectually, than any other preparation, removes
the dandruff and cleanses the head, thus re•
moving all obstacles to the growth of a new
and luxuriant crop of hair. For the prema
ture grey, it restores to the hair the free circu
lation of its natural fluid, and, in an almost in
credibly short time, brings to it its natural
healthfulness and color. Altliough this prep..
aration has never been brought before the
public through the medium of advertising, yet
by its own inherent virtues, it has won its way
into favor in many of the counties of this. ind
neighboring States. At the solicitation Air
Many of my friends and patrons. who have
been benefitted by it, I have been induced to
give it to the public, and in doing this, I do it
with the confident assurance that any who may
try it, will find it to possess all the merit claim
ed for it.
In case of partial baldness, when used a•
greeably to directions, this Restorative hits not
failed, in a single instance,
to produce a luxu•
riant growth of the natural hair.
In the hands of mothers and nurses, it is a
capital curntion for all those / diseases of
the i calp incident to infant children.
In fine, as a toilet article, it should be in the
hands of all who wish to expel! the dandruff,
preserve the hair, prevent it from falling off,
and render it soft, glossy and wavy.
