aI4IONSTU4XCE.—A large pcirtion of our Taper this
isfdled With the names of the moons who re
itoostrated against the granting of Li6ense ton number
of tavern keepers at the present session of the Court of
Qusrtei*sviona. 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

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

For the Morning Poet
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.
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.—

original habits, and speaking the same language, the
differences which exist have been "produced by paper

"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

__"'"-Y ' ' -
there tatmot be a doubt-in the mind of any man of in-
telligenre, who is acquainted with the facts, but all the,
troubles which have been visited upon that unfortu
nate city, have arisen from the Bank. 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

who had entirely enriched thewselves by mechan- ,

whoiecountry, is nearly in the same condition.
"On die opposite side of the river, and a short dis-
Skeictance helo*l3uenos Ayres, is Montevideo. They are
kW) principal ports of the river Plate, and since
the - ion from Spain, have always been under too
diseinti. 'bovernments. The Banda Oriental, or the
Republic' of Uruguay, as it is - now called, of which
Minteiideo is the eapital,hn, never established a bank.

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 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.
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.
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.
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

THE Influenza, which is now in almost a univnysiki
epidemic, is exciting the inventors of paw*
medicines to increased exertions in the poifi ng b a ;
but owing, to the general distrust entertained farthe
,generality of such drugs, people fear taking theta:—
The following,. however, from a distinguished physi
cian in New York, Dr. Nelson, we think mayebe re
lied on:
"The object of the present communication is to Ito
ommend a Single remedy, cheap and of etts7.*??o,o4
the poor, and to caution them against an hutttiouroa,
in this disease, aamely, bleeding, either gettertg,&-hit
leeches. In all those cases in Which the first ghat of
symptoms prevail, let the patient small frequently at
a common salts bottle, (Sims' Aromatic ,e
Salts are preferred) and by putting the vial to:4i
mouth to draw a few deep inspirations of volatile ntat+
ter into the lungs. Let this process be repeated two
or three times in an hour, and it wdl give more speedy
and greater relief, in all slight cases of the first clasi
than any other remedy, and will Be sufficient for ti
cure. It will also be essentially useful in the beverc
cases; and those of the class of prostration, a few
drops of amonia, or hartshorn, ought to taken, inter;
really. A neat way of doing so is to take an old &ash:
ioned mixture called lac ammoniaci. However, it is
as a local remedy, to act on the disordered surface',
t h at i ts w o is advised. The principles will be recog
nized all physicians versed in molecular organize
tion, and those who are deficient in that knowledge
may do in that instance as they do in all othemr-ed}
upon the faith they imbibe." These salt.s.a.ns furs sale
and within the reach of all classes, at Wm. Thous's',
