This statement will invalidate the pretence that the
prosperity of the public works is confined to the West

terest in the success of our improvements, that the
pleasing results shown by those report?, are the con
sequence of aradical and judicious change in the pilicy
of the Canal Board, and do not arise from transient or
accidental causes. It also gives the most positive
assurance that if the same course of policy is perse

It will he seen that the CLEAR PROFITS of the Co
lumbiaßail Road fur the month of July amount to more
than 20,000 DOLLARS ! While the whole profits of
the road for the season amounts to ONE HUNDRED
AND EIGHT THOUSAND DOLLARS! Under
the ela system, the loss on that road amounted to about
tint sam in the course of the year.
Here, then, is a ditference in favor of the new system
of over $200,000, and the season is but half over.
Is any thing wanting to prove the entire superiority
of the present mode of doing business on the canal ?
Every impartial reader must answer, No! And every
man who wishes wall to the Commonwealth, what
ever maybe his predilections for men, will insist that,
let the Board to be elected this fall, be who they may,
they should be required by the people to pledge them
selves to continue the existing system. Once more
we urge it upon our fellow-citizens to keep this mat

We have prodded it, time after time, to make a defence

not ventured a word in commendation of Mr. Craig for
the•manly manner in which he rejected the overtures
for a union. We call on the Gazette now to define its
poSition,and to state whether there is not now a scheme
in contemplation to unite with the whigs, (although it
will scarcely be credited after the recent developements)

learn Glom the Cattaraugus (N. Y.) Whig, that there
has been a series of depredations committed upon a
family residing lathe town of Machias, in that county,
by the name of Andrews, which are unaccountable, dis
graceful and villainous. Early in the spring, there were
several petty thefts committed by entering the house
in the night, carrying away provisions, &c. Their
barn was set on fire and burned to the ground, and two
attempts have been made to burn the house. Who 2io
desperadoes are,it has been impossible to find out, as
they would come in the night, in disguise, painted
black, and every effort at detection has proved unavail.
hag. A few weeks since, a shingle was found in the
houtie, on which was written a warning to the family to
leave . ther house, or they would be murdered, or their
house burned. On Thursday the 2.7 th ult., about mid
night, a noise was heard by the family on the outside of
the house; Mrs. Andrews got up, and upon looking out
saw a Mall fixing a sort of scaffold to get up to the win
dow, thawindow being high up from the ground. She
got an axe and stood near the window as sentinel, the
window being partially fastened on the inside. The
thief mounted the scaffold and commenced raising the
window, and finding, after raising it three or four inch
es, that it was fastened, thrust his arm under to unfas
ten it, when Mrs. Andrews raised the axe, and nearly
severed his arm from his body. The thief, with a loud
groan, fell back, was seized by his comrades, and car
ried to their wagon, which stood a few rods distant, and
the horse was driven off at the top of his speed. An a
"um was immediately given by the family, and the
*hole neighborhood was aroused in search of the des
peradoes. Blood was found on the window sill, traced
to the road, and they were traced by the bldbd as fit as

withstanding my plain and positive denial of it. The
article I allude to is the following: "As to Riddle, he
knows that we have asserted but the simple truth against
him. He is too wise to attempt to. push us to the wall

They have had another outrageous riot among

("At about eight o'clock last night, the fire bells in
4e per part of the city sounded an alarm in aS.
West Mm direction, the firemen turned out in great
numbers and proceeded in the direction indicated by
the strikingof the bells; at the corner of Broad and
Arch streets the two belligerent companies met, the
Fairmount Engine and the Good Will Hose. At this
point a scene was presented which baffles all descrip
tion, stones flew in all directions, bludgeons were bran
dished, and piruols fired, several persons were much in
jured; for a time the property in the vicinity and the
lives of the persons there asserribled were placed in
great jeopardy; at length the members of the Fairmount
obtained possession of the carriage of the other compa
ny and bore her off in triumph with all possible expe
dition. The Good Will Huse members rallied and
pursued them, uttering the most ferocious yells, and
manifesting the intention of visiting their foes with
vengeance. 'The Commissioners of Spring Garden,
in conjunction with Alderman Reese and the police of
the district, interposed their authority, and thus pre
vented them front proceeding to the house to recover
their apparatus by hostile measures. The hose car
riage was then sent back, but it was not accepted. The
Commissioners took it into their keeping, and had it
placed in their yard, where it remained. The excite
ment during the prevalence of these occurrences was
immense, and did not subside until morning."

MOREOF SNIVELY AND WARFIELD'S BANDS.
We have given a condensed account from the St.
Louis New Era, derived from official sources, of the
dispersion, -disbanding and partial disarming of the Tex
an bands that interfered with the Santa Fe trade, by
Capt. Cooke, of the U. S. Army. We have since seen,
in thsi same paper, a letter from Samuel Heffner, one
of ta Texans under Snively, dated "on boar d the
steamer Tobacco Plant, July 28." His narrative cor
responds in all its main features with that of Captain
Cooke, but as it adds a few facts not before published,
we make several extracts from his communication.—
"Oh the 19th of June we came in contact with the
advance of Gov. Armijo's army, (about 100 Mexicans,)
under Chavelers. About 100 Texians engaged in the
attach t ,upon them. After firing thr•c rounds we broke
their ranks, killed 25, wounded 23, and took all the
rest prisoners—without having a Texan hurt."
The Texans numbered about 190 men. He adds:
"We sent the prisoners homeward, and eighty-four
men of our party started on the 20th of June, from our
camp on Owl creek, a branch of the Semirone, to return
to Texas. The remainder, being 106 men, marched
over to the south bank of the Arkansas River,
twenty miles below the Santa Fe crossing, and, as we
supposed, upon Texan soil.
"Next day, however, Capt. Cooke took us by surprise,
as we had no spies out, and one-half of our men were
out buffalo hunting. That officer contended that we
were east of the 100th degree of longitude, and demand
ed our arms, giving us full liberty otherwise; which ;
terms we accepted, it being the most politic, both as
regarded ourselves and our Government. Cols. Snively
and Warfield, with 70 men, started to return, with flee
guns, to Texas. The Comanche Indians took advan
tage of their defenceless state, killed four of their men,
an% drove off sixty horses and mules. Warfield
sued them with five men,intending to retake the horses,
but he was surrounded by about 150 Indians. Warfield
repelled the attack, killed seven Indians, and returned
to camp without having a man hurt.
"This expedition was commanded by Col. Jacob
Snively, and was divided into four companies.
"Previous to our breaking up, Ambrose Spencer,son
of J. C. Spencer, present Secretary of the Treasury of
the United States, was our Judge Advocate."

who was playing that character in a small theatre at

MUSTS. Editors:—ln your pap& of yesterday, whet
you notice the Weavers' turn-out in Philadelphia, yuu
express regret that workmen should be forced to resort
to such means—turn-outs, assaults, &c., and you say,
that while attended with violence these "will always
generate a spirit of bitterness that is certain to settle in
a feeling of hatred between two classes (employer and
employed) whose mutual interests require that they
should live on the best of terms." You no doubt in
tended, honestly, to deprecate among men the existence
of bad feeling, hostility, &c. but did you not know that
the circumstances in which ;hey are placed make them
what they are? If so, then your remark stops short of
the exposition of the cause which forced the Weavers
into collision with their employers, who, while promo
' ring their partial individual interests have also been
forced by the love of gain to continue their exertions;
which again have forced the slaves of poverty into open
violation of the law againstcommitting assault and bat
tery, by inflicting personal chastisement on those whom
they ignorantly believed the producing came of their
poverty and misery.
The interests of the employer and employed are it
in their hostility, and must remain so uT
der the present unjust arrangement of society, and this
truth shouldbe known to all classes, because not know
ing it is the cause of the spirit of bitterness, which settles
in a feeling of hatred between two classes whose inte
rests are necessarily discordant, and must be so, while
to buy labor cheap is the interest and object of one class,
and to sell it dear the interest of the other class. That
which is life to the employer is death to the employed.
The parties should know their relative positions in so
ciety as it is; they should be honestly told the fact; a
vast majority of both classes are uninformed on the sub
ject; yet the interests of society demand its investiga
tion and exposition, in order that good men controlled
by circumstances which give them hostile interests,
should patiently bear their evils and prudently take the
necessary steps for removing, speedily as possible, what
ever stimulates to hatred and collision, by substituting
therefor a system of mutual interests, the effect of which
would be peace and good will.
It is a shameful fact that in Pennsylvania the poor
man has no means of legal redress to secure payment
for his labor. His employer, in reality his master for
the time being, can discharge him and defer payment
for his earnings as he pleases, or until the law as made
by his class for their own purposes willtequire pay
men which can be and often is deferred to a period
exceeding nine months, and it is very common to com
pel a great reduction in the honest demand or submit to
this alternative. Society is unjust in its construction,
and in its workings villany gets a bonus. The success
ful plunderer of honest industry is called a smart man;
be parades the streets with his head erect, and it is not
an uncommon thing to find him leading the van in some
I. professed philanthropic society, abolition, temperance,
&c. If he possesses wealth, be has sec ured a charac
ter for wisdom, and that is a sufficient passport to pub
lic approbation. The toilers whom his schemes have
impoverished and sunk into vice, what of them? Why
they are free and enlightened, and in the poor house
or in jail. Surely it is time to examine the producing
causes of these turn-outs and outbreaks of the useful
classes—the Weavers and others, wealth producers.
But a few days back and we had sere our exhibition of
the beautiful system of labor. Our respectable, be
cause useful females, the power-loom weavers and tai-
'onuses, were compelled to openly protest against the
monstrous frauds perpetrated under the system of truck
payment, which they designated an ingenious device of
avarice; and although they partially succeeded in their
just demands, let none be deceived by present appear
ances. Unless energetic measures be taken by the tai
lors themselves, their evils must increase; there is no
hope for them from any other source, let them begin in
their primary meetings and instruct their servants and
their delegates. Nor should capitalists, usurers, or"
employers expect to peaceably continue reducing wages,
and aggravating the evils which already encompass
the employed. Laws may be enacted to subserve their
purposes for the time being, but the present system
cannot continue. It must be changed. Either by in
creased intelligence in all classes, the only source of
permanent beneficial change, or at length human suf
fering will cause re-action and physical redress will be
attempted. Straws show how the wind blows. The
obstruction of canal navigation by the plundered boat
men on the Lehigh navigation, and the Philadelphia
weavers, movements indicate what approaches. A
change is inevitable; unite w.irkin m-men, on von depends
'ts character. A PROLETARY.
Messrs. Editors:—l am glad to find that the notices
of willingness given by the several Congressional can
didates to arcept nominations from the Democratic
Convention shortly to assemble, are beginning to attract
the attention of our friends. Indeed the condescen
sion and anxious solicitude of some of them, in throw:-
ing aside claims so ?t ranzely and unceremoniously over
looked by the committee of correspondence, and in
counseling the people against the disastrous conse
quences which might at this particular junction follow
the selection of any one who bas not taken practical
lessons on Sutherland's Manual, are matters of them
selves eminently calculated to awaken the dormant en
ergies of the party. Alas, for our County, if she should
happen to be represented. by one deficient in the abstruse
branch of political science during that terrible commo
tion, that -momentous struggle" which is to shake the
Union from its centre to a thousand miles beyond its cir
cumference. The next Congress—no, no, the risk
would ho too great, however well known and frankly
acknowledged by the learned and honorable a man's
"talents and patriotism" may be, to send him to such a
Congress as that, unless he is an old hand. That was
a shrewd and saving piece of advice which the man gave
his son, when he warned him never go into the water
until he first learned to swim. What think yon, fel
low Democrats, of adopting a similar political rule for
this City and County? There is no telling what cas
ualties might befal us, and some of our best men,
should their "talents and patriotism" prompt them to
aspire to important stations which they had never filled
before, and above all to the next Congress.
