The remonstrance of the Martha Washisigtosdsuas, was presented by a committee of la dles, and we understand that the remarks of the spokes ' " Venfest were more appropriate than any that could have been made on the subject, by the most learned Ind eloquent members of the bar. ILAN.—OnSaturday afternoon, and yesterday, after *drought of many weeks, we were visited with a most lidiatiful and refreshing rain. It was greatly needed, twill be of immense benefit. Farmers talked gloom 4tt of their prospectsfor a crop of corn, which looked Idroopin . er,. 'sickly and yellow. The scarcity of grass, 'which was almost entirely dried up, had caused a rise in the price of butter in our markets. And so misera ble wttsthe appearance of the potatoes, that wiseacres A Nweeke riredic:.ing a great scarcity of, and high prices for, that. Impoitaut. article of food. The rain has quite re 's/tiedihGhones of ; , ;riculturalists, and will no doubt vibe oso• rivers somewhat, and enliven trade consider- We saw, on Saturday, during the shower, an apt ii- lustrettio' of the old adage that there is "danger in de thy:" and another proof of the saying that, if you have Is aloft ill) to do and a long rime to do it in, the chances are that you will leave it alone until you are pressed cork. A man went along in a great hurry with tWa or Ake "pieces of house spouting, which ho had been get , .• • tag repaired. Now there was surely: enouch time in the kat six weeks of drought to at tend to this little mat bitintiter, but our friend neglected it from day to day, till he saw the shower approaching, and then he "'set dbont it straight" Hereafter he will mject the max i^ "there 's luck in leisure." For the Morning Poet 'THE NOMINEE FOR CONGRESS. An . ihtempt is being made by some street politicians, to impress the democracy of the county with a most nor iel ides i that the selection for Congress made by the Con eninof lastyear, is obligatory ou the party this time, :and that tie delegates about to convene next month are boandto respond to those who preceed them. Certain ly this isnot democratic doctrine. The very respecta bkmoninsittee of correspondence, together with a large of the people,"repudiate" this slavish dictation apparent. upon the face of this impudent position. The demo** have no desire to confer "vested rights" in their nominations. . To obtain the cordial co-operation of the party, there must be an expression from the coun try, and the voice of the people should be respected. The time has arrived when the voice of the democracy in Al legheny cenxitY rivist and will be heard—they will have no entail in race but they are determined to regard the claims of those mon whose talents have been freely and fearlessly employed in the cause of Democracy, and party directed against the tremendous torrent of Whighumbutgery in IS4O. Among the advocates of republican principles at that critical period, no one did more to serve the party iu ev ery respect, than E. D. Gizi3.st. He devoted nil his time to the cause of the people at the mit& referred to—the democratic party is not un gradefel, and according to the received views ofpartv justice—to a gentleman of acknowledged capability and greatpersonal worth—let all unite to give him a unani mous nomination for Congress. S. CURRENCY IN BUENOS AYRES AND MONTE VIDEO. y the following letter, the gradual decline of Bue nas Ares is presented in a most striking light, as a bonsetmence of the ascendancy of a paper currency.— Jlestattiasted with the flourishing condition of Montevi ,tlno ander a Gold and Silver currency, the facts elicited cannot fail to strike the attention of every rellectirr' ndid,. These two cities are separated only by a river. TIM ono in a period of twenty-five years, has been re dncea to poverty, and periodically involved in anarchy by the National Bank, established there; while the oth er, by a simple adherence to the only just and honest standard of value, a specie currency, has prospered in the higisest degree. Inhabited by people of the same original habits, and speaking the same language, the differences which exist have been "produced by paper =nay gambling ."—lnd. Slate Sentinel. "The Bank of Buenos Ayres was established by the General Congress of the United Provinces of La Plata, or the Argentine Republic, as it is usually called, dur ing the session which began in Mar, 1822. At that period the country watered by the River of Plate, was in a condition of greater prosperily than at any period eirtee the revolution of 1310, by which the indepen , deiice Of these VLSI and productive regions upon the 4Patialfriaortarch was :es_ v ered . •- " Upon the establishment of this bank as a part of the machinery of Giverarnent, its paler currency was mule alawrtil tender for debts.

Being con trolled by , t.be Government, paper currency has been issued to carry on wars, revolutions and other political Imiltunel—rnost of which could never have been prose- ' i anted, but for this rag money. As this currency is a a lawful tender, each individual is compelled to take it istiss nominal value, in discharge of obligations ()few- ' gmedaseription , Most of the merchants, as well as who had entirely enriched thewselves by mechan- , ital.Qpt ts, hate been ruined by this bank, and the whoiecountry, is nearly in the same condition. "On die opposite side of the river, and a short dis- Skeictance helo*l3uenos Ayres, is Montevideo.

The Banda Oriental, or the Republic' of Uruguay, as it is - now called, of which Minteiideo is the eapital,hn, never established a bank. It Is a place of very extensive and flourishing com merce, There is no barter, every thing being bought As a . 1 a for cash, and business transacted without diffl- ' task, in gold and silver currency. Every description otreelestate has risen in value there since 1324, more! dis a o 100 per cent. The increase of buildings, • bith in the city of Montevideo and its vicinity, is very great. Houses are going up in every airection in the city and suburbs; labor is high, and every kind of bu siness brisk, and this is a country where a bank has never existed. " I dollen believe that there is a place in the world where mechanical and every other kind of labor re ceives so groat a remuneration a.. at Montevideo.— Though it seems to be the opinion of some, that no country tan flourish without a bank—the mechanics - said all laboring men must be slaves where there is nothing but specie currency—Montevideo is certainly an exception, which has come under my observatie e.— anse contrast between its dozulition and that of its rival Buenos Ayres, ou the other side of the river, furnishes to my mind a powerful reason for preferring a specie currency, which comma fail to be Understood by every one acquainted with these two •cities." -. Woinitter6ttral that a great deal of excitement re velled InSt Wednesday, in Georgetown, arising out of an audn.pt On the part of two brothers, named Wm. and James O'Brian, to take away the life of their step father, Bernard Brian, by shooting him in his own house, situated on Bridge street, near the market house. Fortunately, however, fur Brian, the stepfather, the pistol went off suddenly, while Wm. O'Brian was in the act of drawing it out of his pocket; the contents, however, lodged in the door sill, and O'Brian was wounded. After this desperate attack, Wm. O'Brian was arrested by H. Reaver, but made his escape to Baltimore. James O'Brian was arrested by officer Barnacle, and put in the watch-house for safe-keeping, on Wednesday night. The next morning, after a full examination before Justice White, James O'Brian was fully committed, for want of bail, to the county prison, to await his trial at the criminal court. It is under stood that this desperate attempt to shoot the stepfath er was formed by the O'Brians in consequence of some dispute about property belonging to the father of James and Wm. O'Brian.--;.Nat. let. A DEEP TRICK A lite London paper records one of those swind ling tricks to which rogues it, lar g e cities so often re sort. One afternoon, a Captain ount.joy Martin, of the second Life Guards, stationed at Windsor, called upon Mr. Barton, upholsterer, in the High street of that town, in his dennit, to pay his account for furni ture, &e. The shop door being - closed, Captain Mar• tyn asked a man standing on the pavement to ring the bell, to save him alighting. Mr. Barton's son immediately came to the door, to whom the captain gave a ,C.loel Bank of Ingland note, with directions fur his father to deduct froth it the money which was due, and that the balance would be sent for and the receipt in the course of the day. About two or three hours afterwards a man, with a broad Scotch accent (who, there is na doubt, was the same fellow who rang the tie% and who saw the note and heard the message delivered to Mr. Barton, jr.) called upon Mr. Barton for the change of the £lOO note and the receipt, stating that he had been sent by his master, Captain Martyrs, who waiting his return at the caval ry barracks. Mr. Barton little dreaming that the fel low was an imposter, inclosed the change amount. ing to 440, in note and gold, and the receipt, in an envelope, and sent it as he imagined to Captain Martyr, at the. barracks at Spital. It was shortly afterwards discovered that the whole was a barefaced robbery on the part of the thief, who managed to get clear off with the money. FAN ATACISAI The last Belfast (Me.) Signal gives a new feature to the fanaticism of the Millerites. It says that on Saturday last their attention was arrested by a flag suspended upon a liberty pole in front of Mr. Jonas S. Barrett's house, and on visiting that place we learned Mr. Barrett was celebrating the coming of the first year of the second advent of Christ. The flag bore the in scription of the "Opening of the Seven Seals," and a picture representing the bible in seven clasps, three of which were broken. At nine o'clock, seven cannon were fired, representing the seven thunders that uttered their voices upon the opening of the seven seals. The bugle, fife and drum were introduced, with other cere monies, and the military rattle Wll3 kept up in the grove of pine trees set out for the occasion in front of the bolts-. Mr. Barrett an honest and hard labor ing man, and seems to be insane on no .üble-t but re ligion. We regret that so industriou , a citizen should waste his scanty funds in giving free dinners, and pro pa,gating such enthusiasm. 'Mr. Saiioiel G. Chase, of Hopkinton, New Hampshire, has invented a new railroad track, which is considered a very material improvement on the one now in use. By this plan the bottom of the car will be elevated three feet above the level of the base of the road; at this elevation rails supported by cross and side posts r laid, and s o constructed as to avoid the possibility of the ears running off the track, or crush ing any one beneath them who may accidentally be in the way of their progress. The plan of Mr. Chase is admirably adapted for sections of country where much snow falls, as it will save the delay now occasioned by snow storms, and the heavy expense of shovelling it away. In building new roads upon this plan, great expense will be saved in grading—in many cases at least $5,000 r mile. !t\IL ROAD IRON SEIZED The United States col:Factor for Cincinnati, hasseized upon a lot of rail rani iron, with $40,000, which was originally imported by Can State of Illinois, and by an net of Congress, if it was laid down for use by the 4th of March la -it, it would have been duty free. The State qbandonerl her railroad project, and sold the iron to another company. The collector has seized it for the duties, the iron not having been laid down within th.i prescribed time. CLAY'S PROSPECTS The Packenham defeat of the Whigs in Louisiana, is one of the severestblows that whiz:pry has yet receiv ed since 1840. Louisiana was the first state that was to hold an election in the South this summer, and it was considered all important to Cla:.ism that she should lead ofl well. In order to make "assurance doubly sure," Mr. Cliy himself went to New Orleans a few weeks uz,), and at: dinners and made speeches to eneittri,4 - e his followers. Ani mirk the result. In the last Con;,:e , s the democrats had but one member from Louisiana, and now they have elected the whole four. TWENTY CENTS A QUIRE.—A good article ofLetter Paper at 20 cents.
