ISGESIOUS ATTEMPT AT FRAVD.—The Charleston
Patriot narrates an ingenious device to defraud the
Banks of that city. It has been the practice with the
Charleston Banks to pay all bills of which only a fifth
part was wanting. The deception consists in cutting
five ten dollar bills into five parts, pasting four of the
parts together, and obtaining payment as for five sepa
rate bills, the five parts thus cut out being properly
united, forming a sixth bill, for which payment was al_
so obtained, thus, by this ingenious trick, pocketing
si.rty dollars in place of fifty. Bills of the Charles
ton and South Western Railroad Bank have been alter
ed in this manner. The Banks having stopped the
payment of bills which any of the parts are wanting,
and the public is placed on its guard against all bills o
RELIGIOUS FORGERY. — Some of the eastern reli

what purports to be an extract from the Pastoral Let
ter of the Catholic Council of Baltimore, showing the
close affinity between the doctrine; of the Catholic
Church and those advocated by Doctor Pusey. On ex
amining the letter it is found, that the matter publish
ed as an extmet, is a forgery nut of the whole cloth, a ,
nosnch sentiment was ever promulgated by the Coun

conscience, but it is still mire painful to sec religious

CRIME A SOURCE OF RENE:a:E.—There are up

about $21,030. So, it seems the crimes of the people
of Ohio are sources of revenue to the State, and the more

n want of sensibility, kindness of heart and domestic
feelings. The following incident will go far to show that
these persons know little of the man. We find it in the
New York Sun:—
In the evening after the late Bunker Hill Celebration,
it was proposed to visit Mount Auburn. the cemetery
upon whose decoration so much taste and wealth has
been lavished, and where repose the ashes of so many
that were beloved by their friends and honored by man
kind. The President, indisposed from the extraordi
nary fatigues of his journey, reception and celebration,
was not of the party, but the Secretaries of the Treasu
ry, Navy and War Departments, the Post Master Gen
eral, Chiefs of Bureaus, and nearly all the ladies and
gentlemen, attended by the Commissioner to China, his
Secretary of Legation, &c., went in carriages to the bu
rial place, where they were admitted by Mr- Bucking
ham, and conducted through winding paths to every
beautiful, romantic or celebrated spot which the ceme
tery contains. It was natural that Mr. Buckingham
should, among other places, wish to show his own fami
ly banal-place, a site of great beauty. Advancing at
the head of the party with Mr. Secretary Spencer, he
came to the enclosure. In the centre was a tasteful
monument of marble, erected to the memory of his tal
ented and beloved son, Edwin. Mr. Spencer remem
bered him, and the circumstances of his early and la
mented death;—how in his youth, full of genius, giving
the brightest promise of future renown, he had gone
on a voyage to the West Indies, died and was buried at
sea, and when he read the inscription, "The sea his
body holds; his spirit, heaven," he fell, quick as if
the lightning had gone through his heart, ghastly and
senseless, to the earth, and was borne from the ground
by Mr. Wickliffe. The cause—the coincidence—the
contrast—was too apparent to every one. A deeper
gloom fell over the patty than that caused by the sol
emn place in which they stood, and tears of pity fell
from those who could sympathise with parental dis
tresses, a hich even the lapse of time could not soften.—
Surely, if men knew the agonies which even a circum
stance like this renewed, though they liked not the po
litican, they would spare the father.

Notwithstanding the multiplied skuniet s on my char
acter, which have been published and circulated on the
eve of the Democratic nomination, and when the refu
of them in detail cannot reach the people, you
are pleased to express undiminished confidence in my
integrity. Such an expression at thislime is peculiar
ly gratifying, for, in my opinion, an honest reputation,
is worth more than any office in the gift of the people
or Government. The abuse recently heaped upon me
so lavishly I might have escaped, by consenting to
become the tool of an intriguing Drratryrstr, but I
am determined, if elected, to use no influence, and
I am opposed to o. National Bank and to the pres
ent Banking system, and drcidedly in favor of the In
dependent Treasury Law. lam opposed to the dis
tribution of the public lands, and the assumption of
state debts by the general government; nudes to other
questions in regard to which the people are divided in
sentiment, I have adopted and shall support the views
of the Democratic party. Should Ibe nominated and
elected, duty to my immediate constituents, my feelir.gs
as a Pennsylvanian and my own individual interests,
will all constrain me to support with earnest solicitude,
every measure calculated to promote the welfare of the
state or advance the local interests of the district.
In conclusion, it is proper to add, that I shall cheer

Grateful for your good opinion, I remain

INTERESTING FROM NEW GRENADA.
The brig America, Capt Wide, arrived nt New York
ou Monday, broug+it advices from Carthagena up to
23d ult., which is of an interesting character. The
elections for the Assemblies had taken place, and the
officers appointed by the party who lately rebelled
against the former government, were elected. A great
deal of discontent was observed among the citizens of
Carthagena after the election, which caused a serious
fight and some blood shed. The cause of it was that
they had discovered fraud, and the general supposition
was that the new party would not have succeeded with
out this fraud. The matter Rll3 about being investi
gated when the America left, and no doubt some se
rious difficulties have occurred.
It was very unhealthy throughout Now Grenada, and ,
in some of the large towns, and in Carthagena, the
yel low fever had broken out, and was increasing daily.
Business was very brisk; coffee plenty; and every kind
of home produce in abundance. American produce was
scarce and eagerly sought after. No American vessel
of war had been there for a long time.

THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT.
We are glad to perceive, says the Pennsylvanian,
that a National Monument is to be erected in New
York, to the memory of Washington. During the last
winter an act passed the Legislature of New York., in
corporating the "Washington Monument Association"
and we learn from the Knickerbocker, that the design
of the magnificent structure is now completed. It is
in the form of a pentagon, and is to be erected of gran

THE PHILADELPHIA WEAVERS, in public meet
ing, have repudiated the violent acts of a mob profess
ing to he weavers. In a letter to the Philadelphia Sun,
"In conclusion we have to lay before an impartial
public a correct statement of what can be earned by a
weaver on a fair week's work. We will take the ave
rage work, a 900 check at the late rate, there was paid
4i cents per yard; now 20 yards per day is average
work, which will amount to 85 cents per day; out of this
85 cents 15 has to be paid for winding 2,1 score skeins '
of filling, leaving 70 cents per day for the weaver, or
four dollars and twenty cents per week. And we are
quite sure we have stretched the weaver's earnings to
the utmost extent. We have taken a 900 as a criterion
to be judged by, and we defy the 16 manufacturers to
produce 16 weavers, or 1 each, who have returned 120
I yards per week of a 900, for the last six. months. We
are also ready to meet them in this proposition. At
the reduction our wages will I3d (average) three dol
lars and sixty cents per week, and in these statements
we have not taken into account the wear and tear of
looms, !mils, or gearing, of waiting for warps and fill
ing, or running two or three times a day to the ware
house. It must therefore be evident to a discerning
public that our cause is just, and we deserve their sym
pathies, and we are glad to state that som of the
manufacturers have thought so too, and corn-wnced is
suing work at the usual prices."
AN INHUMAN WOBIAN.A New York paper of Tues
day has the following harrowing detail:
The Coroner on Monday held an inquest at the dead
house in the Park, on the body of Henry Jordan, an in
fant about nine months' old, who died in xhe alms house
on-Sunday last. The testimony of the child's father,
affecting the wife, showed a fiendish disposition in a
woman which is almost incredible. The father stated
that the child was by a former wife, and that he mar
ried' again, and the child's step-mother bad refilsed to
take care of thechild, and about three weeks back had
placed the infant Ma cradle and thrown it from the win
dow into the yard; that as soon as he ascertained it, he
took the child and the other Lhildren to a neighbor's
house, where they remained till morning; but not being
able to keep them there, he brought them back to his
own house. The brutal mother still refused to take
care of the child, who was suffering from diarrhcea. It
was ultimately taken to the Alms-house. The jury re
turned that the child came to its death from diarlicea,
and through neglect of its parents.
