THE Democratic County Committee of cor
respondence will meet this morning at eleven
o'clock, at the St. Charles Hotel.
We have from the start admired the spirit
of enterprise which initiated the gigantic
project of connecting- the continents of Eu
rope and America by the telegraphic wires,
but we have never been sanguine of the suc
cess of the present attempt. That the con
nection will one day be accomplished we have
no doubt, but it must be a matter of time.—
Science seems already to have been taxed to
her utmost, and thus far the thing is a fail
ure. Indeed, it would seem that if there had
been less of science and more of experiment
-and practical application of knowledge al
ready acquired, the chalices of success would
have been greater.
It seems that another trial is to be made,
and although we sincerely hope it may be
successful, our faith is weaker than before the
late unsuccessful attempt was made. The
paying out of the cable from two vessels un
doubtedly augments the risk, and until the
Leviathan is finished, there is no single vest,
eel of sufficient capacity to undertake the
work alone. There has been a great deal of
useless speculation in regard to the enter
prise and the causes of its failure . . The offi
cial accounts cf the recent trial are by no
means clear and satisfactory. They speak of an
"interruption of the continuity" of the wire
and other mysterious causes at the catastro
phe, which are not calcul,ate4i'to impress the
mind of the unscientific reader, at least, with
any great hopes of success in the attempt
which is still to be made. 'The experience of
both the first and second trials is so similar
as to lead to the strong presumption that the
conducting wires become broken during tine
laying of the cable, from its untwisting, prob
ably, and the whole strain thrown upon
the "core," and in this manner the "contin
uity" is destroyed, and the wires lose their
transmitting power in every instance yet tried,
before more than three or four hundred railos
of the cable have been paid out.
The people of both countries are anxious
to see the experiment fairly tried. It will
occur, we believe within a very short time
that ocean telegraphing will be demon
strated to be practicable and will be estab
lished. Science stops not at such light
impediments as oceans and mountains in
these days, and even if the present attempt
does not succeed, some scheme will be devi!;-
ed to establish electric communication lin
tween the two worlds.
The matter is one of national pride both
to England and the United States, and if the
present essay should fail as the former ones
have done, the governments of the two coun
tries will not permit the design of establish
ing a communication by telegraph across the
Atlantic to be abandoned. We hope success
may crown the present attempt, but, judging
from the past, we cannot be sanguine.
It is with the most profound feelings of
sorrow that we record the death of Major
John Sanders, of the United States Army,
who died suddenly on Thursday, the 2.9f.h
inst., at the Pea Patch, on the lielawar e.
Major Sanders was well, known and gres.t
ly beloved and respected in this community
where he resided for several years, as w ell
as throughout the valley of the Ohio and
Mississippi where he was personally engag,ved
as an engineer, in improving the navigation
of the Ohio.
He was by birth a Kentuckian, gradualed
with distinguished honor at the West Point
Mititary Academy, where he excelled in
mathematics and civil engineering, and im
mediately after finishing his preparatory
course he entered the army in the engim:er
corps. Here his well trained mind, thor
oughly stored with all the acquisitions of
the exact sciences, insured him immedi Nte
and steady advancement. He rose rapialy
to the first rank in his profession. lle
served with honor in the late Mexican war,
and was present at the storming of Monte
rey and other baitles during that campaign.
He was brevetted at its close. He also
served in Florida as an engineer. When
the general Government made appropria
tions for improving the navigation of the
Ohio river, Major Sanders "was appoint.ed
to superintend the work, and during l a resi
dence in the West of several years, he
won the friendship and regard of all with
whom he came in contact.
_was a gentleman of great urbanity
of manner, of great conversational puwe rs,
and, ready and willing to contribute to The
happiness of all around him. To the peu.
pie of Pittsburgh he was bound by dearer
ties than those of friendship merely. Ile
was the son-in-law of one of whom we all
respect and love, Hon. William Wilkins.
With him, and with his other relations and
friends, who have met with an irreparable
loss in the death, in the vigor of mari4pod,
of this brilliant and virtuous man, we sym
pathize most deeply. This death is a pub
lie loss and will be mourned as such.
Major Sanders has left a wife and fami
ly of seven children.to mourn the lose of
a much loved husband and father. His re.
mains will be brought to this city and the
funeral will take place to-day from Home
wood, in pursuance of the following notice:
The reniabas of the late Major .701111 SANDERS of aka
U. S. .Engineer Corps, are on the nay from port Delaware
and will be at the railroad, Iforacwol Station, at one o'l

Gold Mining In New Caledonia.
If the intelligence from the recently dis
covered gold mines of Frazer's and Thomp
son's livers is authentic, and we know of no
reason for doubting it, there are large depos
its of the precious metal in those localities, al
though but little of iti has as yet reached San
Francisco. The Washington Union accounts
for this by the fact that the Hudson's Bay
Company, exercising an exclusive control over
the trade of that section of British North
America, are the only buyers of gold and
sellers of provisions, and consequently the
gold passes ditwtly into their hands in ex
change for supplies. In support of this con
clusion, it refers to the fact that all the sup
plies shipped from San Francisco are on ac
count of this company.
The discovery of gold has occasioned an
itnnuensc speculation, in property' at Victoria,
Viliaicom, and other points. At Victoria
great excitement prevailed iu relation to real
estate, which was advancing very rapidly.—
Lots 60 feet by 120 feet were selling from
100 to $3,000. All the best property has been
taken up. The land office was open the day the
Panama left for San Farncisco, and there
were some seventy-five applicants for lots,
among were a number of San. Franciscans,
and some colored persons, who formed a line
in post office fashion. Each man was limited
to six lots, each lot selling at $lOO ; the lots
to be located, at some future day, in the sub
urbs of the present town. Any person, what
ever may be his nationality, can hold real es•
ate; this seems to be settled
The Union publishes the instructions of
the English Government to Gov. Douglas re
ceived by the last mail from Europe, which
direct that Americans and other foreigners
shall not be excluded from the gold fields,
and accord with the action of Gov. Douglas
in admitting miners of all nations to work
the new diggings, upon condition that they
submit themselves, in common with the sub'
jects of her Majesty, to the recognition of her
authority, and conform to such rules of police
as the Governor may have thought proper to
establish. With regard to the license, it
does not appear that Gov. Douglas' course
meets with the approbation of the Home
Government. We sincerely concur in the
hope expressed by Sir E. Bulwer, Lytton that
nothing may occur to lead to difficulty be
tween the local authorities and the immense
number of Americans and others who are
now swarming to the new placers."
The monopoly of trade exercised by the
Hudson's Bay Company bears oppressively
upon the English settlers as the foreign
miners; and will quickly yield to the more
liberal views which must follow this wonder
ful and sudden increase of population. Par
liament will provide for the organization of
a new colonial government for that portion
of the English possessions before the adjourn
ment of its present session, and thus ensure
thereafter an elightened course of policy, and
remove at once all obstacles in the way of a
successful working of the mines.
August Elections
_ Elections will be held during the month of
August in the States of Missouri, Kentucky,
Arkansas, Texas and North Carolina. In
Missouri, the election is for members of Con
gress, of the Legislature, and for county offi
cers ; in Kentucky, fur a clerk of Appeals ;
in Arkansas, for members of Congress, and
of State Legislature; in Texas, for two State
officers, and in North Carolina, for Governor,
members of the Legislature, and a member of
CongresS in the Eighth District, to fill the va
cancy oocasionod by the transfer of Mr.
Clingman to the Senate. Upon the Legisla
ture about to be elected will devolve the duty
of electing a Senator to succeed the Hon.
David S. Reid, whose term will expire on
the 3d of March nest, and also of filling
the unexpired term of Judge Biggs, now
filled by appointment of the Governer. In
Arkansas, a Senator is to be elected to suc
ceed Judge Sebastian. In Texas, a Senator
is also to be chosen, to succeed Judge Hen
derson, deceased. In all the States mention
ed except North Carolina, the election will be
held on Monday next, the 2d of August; in
North Carolina, on the Thursday following,
the sth. An election also takes place in
Kansas on Monday next, upon th 3 accep
tance or rejection by the people of Kansas
of the land-proposition embraced in the bill
passed by Congress for its admission into
the Union as a State. All these elections
are important, and their results will be
watched with intense interest by the po
litical world.
The Cost of Reaching the Frazer River
A letter to the New York Journal of Com
merce states that the price of passage by the
steamer from San Francisco to Victoria, Bel
lingham Bay, Sz:c., is on the average $3O to
$4O. Added to this is $5O and $25 for river
passage on the steamer Surprise, or by canoe
to Fort Hope. It is fair to say, that a miner,
to go from San t•'ranciseo to Frazer river
mines, wants at least $2OO or $250, cash to en
able him successful to reach the mines and to
procure the requisite outfit.
TIIE following letter we publish with pleas
ure, as it but expresses the simple truth :
Mr. Editor:—Permit us to occupy a small space in
your paper to say a few words upon the subject of
hotels, (and deserving the name) which should be
noticed by the traveling public.
Upon arriving at a hotel, nothing can be more
agreeable to weary and tired travelers, than to re
ceive some little attention from the officers and ser
vants of the house, and conducted to a clean and
neat chamber. After a sojourn at the Monongahela
House, in your city, of some days, partaking of the
luxuries and comforts found there, we feel a sense of
duty and pleasure in expressing to Mr. Crosson and
his officers (which we would call by name if we knew
them) in this way, our gratification for the comfort
and attention we received whilst in their house, and
we cannot refrain from noticing with what great
pleasure we partook of the many luxuries, and how
we appreciated the great attention we received at the
Kirkwood House, Washington City, from the pro
prietors—the brothers Kirk wood, whose pleasant
manners end most excellent table must make them
many friends. May ET-1C(33E5 attend these hotels
is the wish bf WAYFARER.

of Life " religions newspaper, has been arrested
in New York, on a charge of false representa
tion, in obtaining means of carrying on the
publication in question.
—lt estimated that there are 50,000 horses in
tho State of M iseachnsetts, 221,000 in the New
England States, and 4,500,000 in tho United
States. Ohio stands foremost in the number of
horses,New - York next, Pennsylvania next, Ken
tucky next, and iMinnesota last of all. Estima
ting the horses of Massachusetts at $75 head,
their valuo will be $3,750,000, and all the
horses in the United States at the same rate,
would make a value of $337,500,000, or more
than three times the whole cotton and woollen
manufacturing capital of the Union. The horse
interest is a moat important one in the wealth
and prosperity of the States.

Lady Butsver and Her Hasband---A Dra-
ma in Four Acts,
Twenty-seven years ago, there was a fashion
able and Literary wedding in London. The bride
grom, Edward Lytton Bulwer, was a young man
of mark. He had graduated with honors, re
ceived the prize for the beet English poem, and
had begun to publish the novels which have
since created an equal sensation in May Fair
and in St. Giles'. He was the put of the deli
cate, interesting young ladies who were a little ,
blue. It was one of these angels that he led to !
the altar. A once popular poetess tells to the
world that Bulwer was a pale and fascinating
young man ; his bride was the more charming
because she N 7 18 in delicate health, and her com
plexion was like " rose leaves crushed on ivory."
No un'on could have promised better. Bulwer
was rising to the topmost wave of success, while
his wife, who was beautiful and clever, found a
welcome in every drawing room of Belgravia.
A little more than ten years pass away, and
we fled our couple not quite so interesting to
themselves. A son has been horn to them
Lady Bulwer inclines to cm bon point and has a
bad temper. Her husband hac been created a
baronet, and is recognized as one of the fist, if
nut the firetAtving writers of fiction. He works
hard, and ad interim, it is whispered, amuses hies
self after the fashion of Young England. Hii
chambers are those of a bachelor. Madame
lives in the country, and comes dawn peat one
day, to find her husband entertaining a dinner
party more joyous than select. The twain have
lived apart for some time, and the separation is
made eternal by a circumstance which occurred
in Sir Edward's introduction into political life.
Ho rises to speak for the first time in the House
of Commons, and falls to fulfil the great expec
tations that had been raised by his literary
achievements. In fact, he breaks down alto
gether. Taunted by his wife, ho so far forgets
his manhood, according to report, as to inflict a
blow upon her. From this time war is declared
between them. The lady makes her debut in the
literary. world with a novel called "Cheverly,"
which is followed by a pamphlet detailing her
family troubles, and two other novels, severally
entitled "Behind the Scenes" and " Very Sue
ce.sfal." All of these novels contain severe at
tacks upon Sir Edward and his irieds. Curious
ly enough some of hoc bitter sarcasms in Be
hind the Scenes" were levelled against Mr.
Charles Dickens, whose matrimonial troubles
have since afforded a wide field for the London
Lady Balwer's venom against Sir Edward is
rather heightened as she grows older and fatter
and as he grows richer and more famous. In
politics he rises to the surface with the ll.irby
Ministry, and is appointed Colonial Secretary.
To accept this appointment he must resign his
seat in Parliament, and enter upon it hotly con
tested election in his own county, where he is
far from being personally popular. While finish
ing his address to the electors with the custom;ary tribute to the "galaxy of female beauty'
within sight of the hustings, the rose leaf
beauty of thirty years ago appears upon the
scene, in the shops of if stout, red l'a...!,ed matron
of about fifty sncnnier-, before whose dread
presence the statesman beats an inglorious re
treat, while she gives to the public a " piece of
her mind" in relation to the character of the
honorable gentleman who has just solicited their
suffrages. However mortifying this reoontro
must have been to the baronet, the result was in
his favor. He was returned to the House,
duly installed in the Cabinet, and has novr
succeeded in incarcerating his wife in a mad-
It appears that he has recived with hie wife
her income £4OO per annum, which was most
welcome to him at the limo that when he be
came rich he refused to allow Lady Lytton more
than the sum above named and that now ho has
attempteil to silence her forever by confining
her as a maniac, without the smiiTtest Paksible
ground for such action. A novelist by profes
sion, ha has given the plot for a sensation story,
of the first class; a statesman by inclination, he
has shown in his own person the necessity of
still further guards around the personal liberty
of the subject. A member of the Palmerston
Cabinet made an unevitable notoriety as a roue
aad a gambler, but ho did not preach the fine
sentiments which form the stock in trade of Lord
Derby's Joseph Surface. The newspaper ac
counts, however go to show that ho has begun to
be ashamed of hie course, and that he promises
to compromise matters with Lady Lytton There
seems to he some peculiar fatality attendant upon
marriages between literary people. No sooner
has tho world exhausted the scandal about the
Hon. Mrs. Norton than the Bulwers give a new
topic for gossip; and as thia grows stale, the
troubles of Mr. and Mrs Dickens agitate the
clubs, the journals and private circles.
Tho Iron Inter•at
The following
_letter from Mr. John Sam
uel, dated Johnstown, Cambria county, Pa.
July 22,1, 185 S, contains a matter of impor•
tance to those who take an interest in the de
velopments now making in the different
branches of manufacture of Iron in this coun•
try. Mr. Samuel says:—
This "Great Pennsylvania interest " the
manufactura of iron—is of vital importance, and
is being oarried out in the developments which
are being constantly male in every department
of the business, and these developments exceed
the anticipations and predictions of those best
likely to judge of the success or failure in gen
nis and enterprise in attempting great and un
tried things; each step of improvement being a
step in advance towards greater perfection in
the art of iron-making, the great act of civiliza
tion and of life.
I design to notice in the present art joie, in
addition to those I had communicated in my
former paper, an improvement of incalculable
value to the iron interest, and which must cer
tainly be introduced into all rail and girder roll
ing mill establishments, where they would study
economy and advantage of profit, &0., whether
in this country or in Europe. This improvement
—it ehonid be called an invention—consists in
rolling rails by a backward and forward process,
technically called three high rolls. To those
only familiar in some measure, with the very
laborious nature of the work as it has been
done in the ordinary way, and is still done, can
the immense difference be perceived of this new
method of producing a rail of more homogeneity
and finiah than by the method, while it has re
duced the labor to the merest fraction required
in the old mode of rail-working. All honor to
Mr. John Fritz, of this place, who has accom
plished in this matter as great—l may say a
greater—that anything I have witnessed daring
familiar, practical acquaintances with the iron
manufacture for more than sixty years in differ
ent quarters of the globe.
In this remark, I particularly refer to the
lessening of the amount of human labor and
suffering experienced, by those engaged in this
—one of the most laborious branches of human
toil. No person with a spark of humanity and
fellow-feeling in his breast—no one laying claim
to the smallest share of philanthropy—can visit,
and spend one hour in one of our large iron
works, and not wish there was some way of mit
itgating, or lightening the tremendous labors of
the iron worker. Mr. Fritz is studying this mat
er. I alluded to it in my former article, July,
Bth, in the Penneylvanian, and I hesitate not to
say, if he lives, and pursues this study with the
same ardor he does, such changes in this respect
will bo wrought in the iron business, that he will
be entitled to a distinguished notice as a bene
factor of his fellow-men.
I am penning this article for the world entire
ly uninfluenced by Mr. Fritz, but as one who
has passed through the hardships of the iron man
ufacture, and witnessed all its wonderful changes
and progress for more than six-tenths of a cen
tury, I may now be allowed to express my ad
miration of of the man who is doing so noble a
work, as aiming to advance to greater perfec
tion, ono of the greatest, if not the greatest in
terests of Penne)lvania and the world.
I feel loth to intrude the subject here, but
hove heard with surprise that objections have
been raised to the securing a right by patent to
019 new mode of making rails, Could they who
'Officially control these matters, see and appreci
ate the value of the application of a discovery
made in England about forty years ago, but
never prolically turned to account in manufac
turing so important an article as railroad iron,
till now in Johnstowm, they could not deny it
the merit of an "invention." With those whO
should choose to weigh the value of an invention
by the ameliorating influences and benefits it con
eerred upon !lard toiling humanity, a thousand
patents would be no equivalent to ten thousannd
paine of overtasked strength which this inven
tion shall confer upon unborn generations of my
fellow working-men. Upon this ground irre
speotive of its intend:3 merits, which I will dis
cuss in a future article, the right of a patent
might be justly and confidently vested. nink
ing with a working man's thoughts only, this
consideration would be tho paramount consider
ation. I will feel laid under. great obligations
to the Pennsylvanian for giving publicity to this.
I shall attempt to furnish, by and by. a descrip
tive sketch of the "Cambria Iron 'Rorke," an
establishment which has few equals in this or
any other country.

AllY—My connection for the past leiOlt - years with the
above Institution, es Chief Physician, and a twelve years'
course of steady devotion to the Cure of Pulmonary Om
erimption and its kindred diseases, together with my un
rivalled opportunities and advantage of pathological research
—aided not a little by a perfect system of Medical Inhatc
tion—has enabled me to waive at a simian, direct and suc
maid course of treatment for the positive andradical cute
of all dDeases of the Throat, Lungs, and Air-. Passages. BY
Inhalation, the vapor and curative properties of medicines
are directly adreased to the Sheared organs road the integU
'heat: Ido not advice the use of Medical Inhalation of any
kind, to the exclusion of general treatment; and although I
consider it a useful adjuvant in the proper management of
those fetufal . and often fatal diseases, yet I deem it very t,
comers that each patient should have the benefit of both
gereral and local treatment. The success cf my treatment
la the above diseases, and the high character of the Institu•
tion over which I have so long had the honor to preside,ato
too well known to need any eulogy or comment from nr.
At the solicitation of many private and professional friend-,
through whose philanthropic aid the above charity has been
long and liberally supported, and after due consideration, I
have concluded to make such arrangements as will bring
the binefite of my experiments and treatment within the
reach of all, and not confine myself, as heretofore, to thous
only who entered the Infirmary, or who were able to visit
meoffice. Roping tborefore' that the arrangement
will atllmy
giveentire satisfaction, both to my prolessienal breth
ren and the public, I would respectfully announce in con
clusion, that Icon now be ainsuttedpertconally or byietier, ol ,
