The .ilfountain House—lmprorements—Ebens
SATURDAY, July 10,1858.
Dear Post:—ln our former communication,
we spoke in general terms of this beautiful,
comfortable and healthful summer resort, and
now a few particulars may prove interesting.
The associatian which has charge of this de
lightful spot, of which Jos. Pennock, Esq., of
our city,is President, is composed of gentlemen
like him, of ample means and enlarged liber
ality. Great improvements in the grounds
are designed and in progress, such as foun
tains, summer houses, and horticultural beau.
ties of great elaboration. The springs which
are large and never failing, are near the ho
tels and higher up the mountains, and will be
made to supply the fountains, and, at the same
time, furnish a large trout pond, which the
company are constructing. There are plenty
of the speckled beauties to be caught in the
mountain streams hard by. A gentleman
came in to-day with a hundred and thirty of
them, the result of a few hours' sport.
In the eastern cities, and especially in Phil
adelphia, great attention is turned to this spot.
An amateur artist from Philadelphia, Mr.
Gilleau, was here to-day, and took a variety of
photographic views of the most remarable
scenes of the Alleghenies, which will proba
bly be engraved for some of the popular peri
odicals of the day. Mr. G. and his party have
a special train.
Yesterday we visited the pleasant moun
tain villages of Ebensburg and Loretto. The
St. Francis Academy at the latter place, now
numbers about fifty students. The annual
exhibition takes place on Wednesday,the 14th,
and greatpreparations are being made for
an interesting and pleasant day. On July
9th, at the Monastery, Brother Bernard Dev•
oreux, a young monk, a native of Waterford,
Ireland, died of consumption. We were
present at the funeral obsequies. High Mass
was celebrated by Rev. W. Pollard, assisted
by Rev. Messrs. Mitchell, of Ebensburg, and
Ford, of Loretto, as deacon and sub-deacon.
The ceremonies wore very imposing, there
being a large procession of priests and relig
ieuses, students and citizens. The Monaste
ry and- Academy are under the direction of
the Franciscan Brotherhood. There is also a
school at Loretto, under the charge of the
Sisters of Mercy, the examination of which
takea place on Tuesday, the 13th inst.
Ebensburg is one of those remarkable
towns in Pennsylvania, where everybody is a
captain, there being no privates. The people
are whole-souled,generous,hospitable, and it is
a sure thing that, whoever goes to Ebensburg
will remember to note the visit with a white
mark. The delegate election among the Dem•
ocrats took place to-day, and all was bustle
and excitement among the sovereigns of old
Cambria. The "frosty sons of thunder" are
true to their ancient faith.
The law suit of which I spoke in my for
mer letter, is finished, and Mr. Power, the
arbitrator, has left for Philadelphia, where
he will decide upon] his award, The argu
ments of the counsel in the case were most
eloquent and powerful.
Next week, we understand, several parties
from Philadelphia will take up their resi
dence here, and from all parts of the coun
try people are coming in. Let those in Pitts
burgh, who can get away, come to the Moun
The Conferees for the, Twenty. Second
Congressional District met, yesterday, in
Allegheny City, and nominated Robert
M'Knight, Esq., upon the fifth ballot. We
shall not venture at this moment upon a
discussion of the antecedents of Mr. M'Knight,
and barely mention for his comfort that he
is good enough to be beaten this fall by the
Democracy. Wo intend to elect two Demo
cratic members of Congress in this region,
next October, :which Messrs. Moorhead and
M'Knight may as well learn now as here
We understand-the Brokers of this city in
tend if possible to curtail the circulation o
Spanish, Mexican, and South American
coins,, in this city. Smooth quarters, " levy's
and fips" are a nuisance, and should not be
passed for more than their value. The Bank
ers of the pity of course must take the mat
ter in hand as in other cities, and to this end
propos° to take, but not pay out foreign quar
ters at twenty two cents, " levys " at ten
cents, and "fips," at five cents. We have
aoundance of American decimal coin to ans
wer all purposes and the community would
consider it a benefit to have all other coins
driven out. We commend the movement
and hope it will at once be adopted.
The Agricultural Bureau of the Patent Of
fice is extending its useful efforts to promote
the interests of the farmer. It is making
preparations to test the cultivation of tea in
this country. The seed will be preserved in
China specially for the purpose, planted in
glass cases and shipped in October. By the
time of their arrival hero they will have suf
ficiently sprouted to be set out in beds. Af -

THE POST OFFICE QUESTION.
The following extracts in relation to the
editor of this paper in connection with the
Post Office of this city, are the unsolicited
and disinterested opinions of those who have
so often fought the fight, and to whom the
Democracy look for future successes. We have
no doubt the President will give to their
opinions careful consideration, and let us
know in due time the result, and it is very easy
to decide what that will be, if ho possesses

THE PITTSBURGH POST MASTER —The term of
the present gentlemanly and accommodating Post
Master of Pitteburgh is about to expire, and as
a re-appointment under the rotation system es
talaished by the President is not to be looked
for, the per€,De to be elio , ;m to fill that office is
Creating some excitement in our neighboring pity.
The-fefte raid to be the mirror of popular
sentiment. If this is true, then Gel Barr, of
the Daily Past, is not only the choice of the mass
of the people, but stands almost without a rival.
The Pittsburgh Poet Master regulates the dis
tribution'of the mails for a large part of West
ern Pennsylvania, and on that account, all the
neighboring counties feel a deep interest in the
choice to be made.
Col. Barr served aregnlar apprenticeship in
the Post Office as a - hlerk, and if appointed,
would carry into the office a ripe experience,
which, united with his accurate, business habits,
would make him one of the most efficient officers
that ever filled that position.
The papers of almost this entire end of the
State, have spoken for their respective readers

Nor is his popularity confined to the press
alone, for our intimate and familiar intercourse
with tho people of Pittsburgh, enables us to
speak advisedly on that subject, and it roquiros
but a brief sojourn:in that city to learn that: at
least nine out of every ten of the democracy are
his warm and outspoken friends.
The reports from Washington are decidedly
favorable to friend Barr, and we look forward
with great confidence to the time when we can
greet him as Post Master of Pittsburgh.
The Post is one of the most effici.nt and influ
ential democratic newspapers of Western Penn
sylvania, and in every struggle of the past has
done battle most nobly for the men, measures
and principle of the party. The Post has a
large circulation and wields a greater influence
than any other democratic paper in this end of
the State. It is an old paper, and dates its use
fulness from an early day—yet it was never edit
ed with more judgment, skill and tact then at
present. The Col. wears the laurel wreath
which encircled the brows of his predecessors;
not a braid is broken, not a leaf is faded. The
Post Office is a proper tribute to this true man
and able writer.

THE POST OFFLOE.—We have heretofore had
ourjoko about the postmaster who is to serve us
all here during the remaining time of Mr. Bu

jokes aside, since rotation is the order of the

receive the appointment, for we are sure he will
be as good an officer as can be found. The

No matter what our private feelings may be,

First. He has been an able and consistent advoi

PITTSBURGH POST OFFIOI3I.—It is rumored that
the President will appoint a Post Master for the
Pittsburgh office, in August next, as Mr. An
derson's commission expires at that time. We
with others are interested in the office, and
should be much pleased to have a faithful and
competent person to take the place of Mr. An
derson, the present incumbent. There are sev
eral applicants ; but, in this eeotion, as far as
our knowledge extends, the popular feeling is in
favor of James P. Barr, Esq., the able editor of
the Pittsburgh Post, the leading paper of the
Democratic party in Western Pennsylvania, and
whioh,wields an immense. influence. The circu
lation of the Post is very large, and its course,
not only at this time, but heretofore, has done
good service to harmonize and strengthen the
party—its principles are always the principles
of the party—its opinions and measures are
looked to and respected by the party, and we
trust the President will select its editor, who has
been in the service of the party all his life—he
is honest and capable to discharge the duties of
the office bettor, in our opinion, than any other
man named for the station. His appointment
would be received with approbation in this sec
tion of the State.
[From the Blairsville Record.]
THE PITTSBURGH POST OFF/OB.—We observe
now and then a word in our exchange papers
respecting the Pittsburgh Post Office,
James P. Barr, Esq , editor of the Post, and
John C. Dunn, Esq , at present first clerk in the
Post Office, are applicants.
Without the right or the wish to interfere, un
becomingly, in the matter, we may say, as Mr.
Barr was raised here till nearly man-grown, that
he is recollected with favor by all his acquain
tances here, and they are numerous.
His father, the late D. H. Barr, Esq., had
been a member of the Baltimore Greene; a vol
unteer company that served a year in the vat. of
1812. He had assisted in rowing the mutilated
remains of the lamented Pike on board the fleet
He held the offices, at this place, of Justice of
the Peace, Deputy Marshal, and Poet Master, at
one time or other, and at his death was Collector
of Canal Tolls for the port of Blairsville.
Although never efficient, Mr. Barr and his
honored wife who survives him, and still resides
here, managed to raise worthily and well, a fami
ly of five sons, of whom James P. is the eldest,
and five daughters. And we c)in say what is
even more to their credit, end challenge contra
diction, a more orderly or better behaved family,
or one more respected on grounds of personal
worth, was never known in Blairsville.
The family presents -the honorable speotacle of
having all arrived at maturity of life and char
acter, vithout a spot or wrinkle on the reputa
tion of one of them.
Mr. James P. Barr now conducts the lead
ing detuccratio journal in Western Pennsylvania,
and whatever influence the paper obtained un
der its former editors, it has, by a just right,
descended to its present able editor. We believe
President Buchanan would give satisfaction to
the business community of that city by appoint.

THE PITTSBURGH POSTUASTEB..—" Lex,"-the
Washington correspondent of the Philadelphia
Pennsylvanian of Monday,- says : "The Pitts.
burgh postmaster will not, I understand be ap
pointed until next August. For a time it was
thought that this appointment would be made at

to tell it in Oath, and proolaim it in Aekelon, that
they had a sure thing of it. The foot, however
showed they had " whistled before they were
out of the woods," and as I stated above, the
appointment will not be made for two months.
The contest seems to be between Mr. Barr of
the Pittsburgh Post, and Mr. Dunn. At first it
was thought that Mr. Dann had the advantage,
but public sentiment appears to have gone un
some some change on the subject. Mr. Barr is
an able writer, and it is the duty of the Domoo
racy to sustain him in publishing an able and re
liable organ of its principles in the western part
of the Keystone State. Allegheny county is known
to be a hot bed of modern fanaticism, and to
couneract its baleful influence, the support of our
party should be given to a paper which can and
will combat ills errors of our opponents. Mr.
Dunn is a good man—l would not say a word
against him—in fact, I could not even if I de
sired it—yet I must say that I think hie selec
tion would not subserve the interests of the party
to the extent that Mr. Barr's would. I know the
President will act prudently in this matter, and
I for one, (and the same may be said of all who
have taken an interest in the matter,) will cheer

PITTSBURGH POST 011110 E.—The appointment
of Post Master at Pittsburgh, it is said, will be
made in August, and, as the time approaches
the friends of the different applicants are urging
their claims. Mr. Barr, editor of the Poat, is an
applicant, and very evidently has the sympa
thies of the Democratic masses in his favor. Bo
far as we have heard anything on the subject
hereabouts, the feeling is strongly in hie favor.
The Pttsburgh Prat is by odds the most widely

and harmonize the party ; and its opinions

How the British Proposal for an Ocean Police is
Regarded—The Administration and the Transit

WASHINGTON, July 10, 1858
With reference to the proposal of the British
government, that some arrangement he entered
into between it and the United States to have
the true character of vessels at sea determined,
in order to prevent piracy or abuse of the flag,
the adminietration doea not see how any ar
rangement can be made without compromising
the principle of inviolability of the flag, and
subjecting us to greater evils than those it is
propose to prevent.
There being many contradictory and interested
accounts about the Nicaragua Transit route, and
the attitude of our government with respect to it,
I may state, on authority, that the administration
is determined to sustain whatever claim to priv
ileges of the transit aro valid. The adminis
tration will not permit the ephemeral, ever-chang
ing governments of Central America to abolish
by decree the bona fide grants and vested inter
ests of our citizens. Before any actual grant
can be set aside it must be shown to be invalid
by regular process of law. Under this decision
of the government, it is not likely any of the
new grants made of the transit privileges are
worth much. The original grant, until it ex
pires or be set aside by regular process of law,
will be sustained, and vessels of war are now
there for that purpose.

had received an express from the Peace Commis
sioners informing him that the army would be
received peacably by the Mormons. The
General did not, however, feel any increased
confidence in the peaceful Mamie of the Saints,
and the army was kept in readiness to repel any
treacherous demonstrations. A proclamation had
been issued to the people t.y Johnson, in which
he tells them the army is as ready now to afford
them assistance and protection as it was to op

Fort Bridger to Capt. Marcy and accompanied
Johnson. Everything regarding the future
movemt nts of the Mormons is DWI veiled in mys
