THE True Press of this city, managed by a
few Republicans, has undertaken a tolerably
heavy contract in the political way, that of
controlling the several organizations. and
whipping them in to select candidates to suit
the notions of the clique of the Press. It has
not taken a name from the Republican ticket
yet, and found but one man on the Demo
cratic to adopt-}lr. Farley, for County Cony.
missioner. As every man on our ticket is
known to agree with the resolutions and ad
vocate them, and as the Press appears to be
delighted with the -platform, why not put up
the ticket bodily ? Every man upon it is
"sound upon the tax question." There is an
other convention to be hold, 'we believe, on
the.2sth, of which the Press must have the
management, and to this we have ohjee-
Con, as there seems to be capacity and stem
ach for all. The call of this e"tiventiun
states distinctly its purpose, that ut
nating a ticket fur the people." - We shrill
see how far this is carried out. What we
object to most is the extent of the contract,
which assumes the management of the Old
Democratic party, venturing advice as to
the conduct of the campaign, but an utter
refusal to support the nominees. We shall
vote for them—the clique intends to v,,te
for the platform.
The Press intimated in its issue of the
24th of July, " that the relations exist
ing between Mr. Moorhead and the Post '
wore well understood in this community,"
and in its issue of Saturday states cur plans
were disarranged fur the election of Mr.
Moorhead by the defeat of Judge Shaler for
Congress. To all this We have hut one short
answer to make, and we desire it to he com
plete, which is, that the editor or author is a
wilful, deliberate liar. That Judge Wilkins
or Judge Shaler should be a party to a dis
reputable scheme such as they are accused of
in Saturday's Press, no decent man will be
lieve, 71 0 gentleman would utter. The Press
may hire scribblers to vilify these old Demo
crats, and justify with glee the conduct of
those who refused Judge Wilkins utterance
in a Democratic convention—this may be eon
,genial; it certainly was not unlocked for at
(the hands of the party who control this tish
woman concern. We have no fears fur the
Democratic party; it is able to take care of
itself, and would only be contaminated by
contact with the miserable crew who control
the Press. We elected our ticket three
years ago upon a clean Democratic platform,
and could do it again. The ticket presented
is unexceptionable in every respeet, and the
names upon it will appeal to the Democracy
for a hearty support, which there is no reason
to fear will be withheld.
We have heard it intimated that Andrew
Burke, Esq., candidate for Congress on the
Democratic ticket,' fur the Twenty-first Ms
' trict, would decline the honor. We sincerely
hope he may be induced to accept and
lead the ticket, as he only can do. With
him in the canvass, all doubts would vanish,
all misgivings yield to oonvictiop of victory.
The eloquence of Mr. Burke is all that is
required td rally the masses, at the present
moment—to instill confidence and elect the
ticket. We are well aware that the nomina
tion was forced upon him—that now, us here
tofore, he steadily refused the mention of of
fice of any kind, in connection with hi: name,
but now that he is in the field, it it the ;in
care desire of the Democracy War he c: ill
forego his dictate for public position, and go
to Congress, for he is certain to be elected.
WE inadveriently neglected to give the
proper credit to the Philadelphia North .dater_
ican for an article published in our is:iup of
Saturday, headed " A Century."
The Wteeosta Eantie
On last Tuesday, the leading banks rs ut
Chicago, published a card, stating that they
would from that date, discontinue the taking
of the notes of certain Wisconsin banks, the
names of which we publish in another col
umn. The merchants of the city', believing
that the currency was good, were displeased
with this proceeding, and on Thursday even
ing held a meeting in relation to the :natter.
A number of the bankers of the city were
present and defended their course in throwing
out the money, on the ground that the banks
were located at remote points, that some u
them had no offices of redemption, and
they did not feel safe in taking it unlos. some
provision was made :for its redemption.
Neither themselves nor the community could
bear the load of this increasing mass of curren
cy which they could not convert. They had
given no public notice of their determination
to refuse these issues because they were fear
ful of a run on their banks with this Wiscon
sin money. One of the gentlemen remarked
that probably if Wisconsin had been satisfied
with even double the number of banks that
Illinois had, perhaps Chicago bankers might
have carried their currency notwithstanding
it was uncomeatible.
A committee on resolutions reported the
following, which were unanimously adopted
Resolved, That we believe in a sound, converti
ble currency, and that if any of the currency
or the bills of any of the banks now in circula
tion in this city be inconvertible, it is the duty
of our bankers and business public generally to
adopt such measures as will render them readily
convertible into coin or New York exchange as
early as possible-
Resolved, That we will sustain our banks in
every effort made in good faith to retire uncon
vertible money from circulation.
Resolved, That we believe Wisconsin currency
to be well secured, and - if any of the banks in
that State refuse to redeem, we will nevertheless
take their issues. at par, sad place it in the hands I ~ This I enntlfill 1•44 , 0, l'y one of our most gifted bards,

were on that iustitutieu and the balance in notes
of ditlereut banks. As soon as ascertained, the
fact was tlaehed by telegraph to all parts of the
country, in hopes that some clue might be ob
tained of the rubbers and missing funds. In
spector Walling, of the detective squad, and of•
fioers Elder and McCord of his force, have since
been on the lookout, although unable to obtain
any clue whatever of the robbery. Notwith
standing this, these affieers immediately after
wards fixed the i r eyes on two very suspicious
men, whom they watched day and night, follow•
ed them in cars and stages, until they were lo
cated beyond a doubt. These officers watoh
ed two suspicious houses, the resort of imported
burglars and other desperate characters. The
result was that about ten days ago the officers
arrested two men, giving their names as James
Farrell and George Smith, but as they could not
ha recognized nor peeved to have anyeparticipa
tion in the hank rubbery, they were discharged.

tive, whereupon the stranger handed Mr. O'Don•
cell a blank ;eattier travelling bag, with the re
iinzst that he khould give it to Capt. Walling.—
Nothing strange was theugla of the matter at
the time by Mr. O'Donnell, who soon afterwards
left foe ha public house, at the corner of Twen,

Walling, on eis way items, culled into Mr.

together, both living in the eatie house. When
about to enter Use htnee, Mr. O'Donnell told the
Cir. that a carpet bag had been left there for

strange of the matter, and knew his family had
no carpet bag answering the description of the
one asread. A third party hinted that Capt.

was n,t impossible for the bag to contain a tor
pedo or Ouint, other instrument of death. Wil
liam O'Donnell, iu a playful manner, suggested
that the contents of the bag were the .Hatters'
Batik stolen notes, not supposing for a moment
that such was the case. The suspicious bag was
examined with great care, and found to contain
coma soft substance. It was carefully opened,
when, to the Wonder and aoLenishMellt of the
captain and his carnal - tato:is, three large pack
ages of the Hatters' Bank bills were discovered,
wrapped up in a newspaper. At the sight be

having volunteered to go after him. The sum
of money returned to Captain Walling is suppos

Tee bank Aerial a reward of five per cent on
all the money recovered, which will partially
compensate the officers for their trouble, though
ten per cent rould not have been too much for
them. Thu officers are entitled to great credit
this matter, and more particularly from the
fact that they have had no information whatever
to work upon. That they unconsciously been
piping",the real burglars, there remains scarce•
ly a doubt, and the presumption consequently
is, that the robbers, being fearful of falling kilo
the hands of the officers, together with the plun
der, deemed it expedient to return the bulk of
the money, in the hope of withdrawing suspicion
from themselves. No efforts will be spared to
recover the balance of the mousy, and, if possi

WASHINOTOII, August 20, 1858.
The congregation hero just now of so many
leading politicians from New York and Pennsyl
vania has resulted in an amicable adjustment of
the differences which bed arisen between the
members of Congress and the Administration.
While the latter is willing to listen to the advice
of the former, and desires their testimony as to
the fitness and competency of applicants for of
fice, it is not willing to concede to them the
right to dictate to it the entire disposition of
the federal patronage of their districts. The
testimony of ether prominent members elf the
party must have duo weight. The evil alluded
to has grown to suoh an alarming extent of late
that it has almost usurped the prerogatives of
the Executive, and the President was likely to
find himself without the power of appointing
such men to fill the offices under him as ho was
willing to ho responsible for. Ile very properly
maintains that eo long as he is accountable to
the country fer the management of tho govern
ment, he couitidere it due to himself to know
who he delegates to assist in oairying out his
policy. It is now understood that Mr. Sohell
and the Treasury Department will suffer from
no further improper interference on the part of
the New York delegation. It is proper that it
should be stated in this connection that there has
been no differences of opinion between the Ad
ministration and Collector Schell on the subject
of the appointments. The whole trouble has
arisen out of the inability of the Collector to give
the same place to six or eight tutu.
The New Yuck Post Offices are to be tilled ao
cording to the original appointments—Fonda, at
East Troy , Greaten, at West Troy ; and the late
appointee at Whitehall.

A correspondent of the New York Evening 1 3 03 i,
in noticing the recent discovery of pearls, in some
of the waters in the South-western part of Kan
sas, (a discovery of no great importgnee, we
suspect) thus speaks of the prospective settle
ment of the Indian Territory :
" Should the present anticipations be realized,
and the result throw a large population into
Southern Kansas, it will have an important ef
fect upon the rich territory South of us. This
large region, said to be fully equal to Kansas in
the productiveness of its soil, and better sup
plied with water and timber, is now occupied by
the Cherokees and Choctaws in the East, and
the Camanches in the West Propositions have
already boon made for opening it to settlement,
and organizing it as a Territory under the name
of Neosho ; and some such action will undoubl -
edly be taken by the Goverment at no distant
day. The slaveholders of Arkanees and South
ern Missouri covet the country, and aro deter
mined to plant their peculiar institution (which
already exists among the Indians) so deeply
there that no Northern Emigrant Aid Societies
can extirpate it. With this view, large numbers
of them have already moved in with their slaves
and settled, during the lase year. The inevita
ble tendency of a rush of our population to the
scene of the pearl discoveries would be to cause
many Free State man to penetrate into the In
dian Territory and commence settlements there.
It is certain that the Kansas struggle on the
slavery question will be repeated in " Neosho,"
sooner or later ; and I think there are now at
least five thousand Free State people in Kansas,
who are ready to remove there and participate
In it, whenever the country shall be legally open

War in Africa.
The Paris Pays of July 24, says : At the pres
ent moment occurrences are taking place in
North Africa, which, though they are highly
important, seem to have escaped the attention
of Europeans. It has already been mentioned
that the Emperor of Morocco undertook a war
like expedition against the Semmurs. On the
21st of May he set out from Meckinez at the
head of 6,000 men of the black guards, 4,000
men of the regular infantry, and 0,000 herse•
Mon to-al - tack the Semmurs in their own terri
tory, while his son, Sidi Mohammed, advanced
with 18,000 men from B.abat for the same pur..
pose. The rebels hastily retreated into the in
terior of the country, leaving their tents and
baggage to the mercy of the invaders. The
Emperor, deceived by Arab guidon whom he
considered trustworthy, wits suddenly, after
reaching the mountainous regions, surrounded
by the Semmurs, and sustained a disastrous de
feat, effecting his return to Fez only by a series
of almost miraculous escapes.
The Emperor Muley Abdcrrhaman is now
eighty-two years old, and a campaign like that
he has just now entered upon, must, besides in
volving the most serious political consequences,
be arduous and harassing to him personally.—
The insurrection, too, is said to be extending to
neighboring tribes. The Amezirgs, who were
subjugated in 1825, after years of terrible war
fare, are said to be making common cause with
the rebels. The government of the Emperor of
Morocco has hitherto enjoyed the reputation,
among its tributary tribes, of posse sing im
mense power; but this belief once shaken, the
bonds of fear, whieh alone united them to its
throne, will soon be riven, and the mighty em
pire, perhaps, in turn be subjugated by those
who so long unwillingly contributed to its great
ness and renown.
Jtobbery of the Allot at Philadelphia
On Wednesday morning a bold robbery took
place at the U. S. Mint,Chestint street, near Thir
tieth, Philadelphia. It is welt known that in
one portion of the building is a room appropri
ated to the exhibition of medals, dies, and coin
of a peculiar character or make. All these arti
ejes are kept in glass oases, ranged against the
'wall, and are always kept locked, and an atten.
dant stationed in the room to show visiters
around, and explain to them the various articles
on exhibition. Yesterday morning, at about
lld o'clock, and while visitors were passing in
and out, the door of one of the oases was discov
ered to be open, and on examining the contents,
four $2O gold pieces, two $5O pieces, one $25
piece, and ono $4O slug, all of California gold
and workmanship, were missing, though the cases
were closed but few minutes before, and the
attendant had not left his post. Information of
the theft was immediately left at the Reccreder's
office, and and the detectives attached to his of
fice proceeded to Third street, and there discov
ered that one of the $2O pions had been chang
ed about five minutes before. The officers re
ceived such intelligence here as to induoe one of
them to take his stand at Eighth and Chesnut
streets. Directly afterwards two men came
came along; went into the store on the corner,
and, after bargaining for a piece of cassimere,
offered in payment a $2O piece. All this was
seen by the officer, who immediately arrested
both individuals, and took them before the Re
corder, where, on searching their persons, a
number, though not all, of the pieces stolen,
were found. There was also found a number of
notes, which corresponded with those given on
Third street iu change for gold, though the per
son giving it could not identify either individual.
Two of the messengers at the Mint recognized
the accused as having visited the institution in
the morning, and they noticed their leaving in a
hurry. The accused were committed in default
of $2,600, for a farther hearing.

Telegraph Cable Souvenier.
NEW YORK, Aug. 21.—There is a rather wide
spreal desire manifested among our citizens to
get possession of a piece of the ocean telegraph
cable for a keepsake. Telegraph operators are
much annoyed by requests to get bits of it for
their friends and Others, and to inform them
where it can be got.
In order to supply the want here indicated
the Messrs. Tiffany of this city have bought the
one hundred miles of the cable now remaining
on board the Nlagan, which they intend to have
cut up in small sections for sale to be mounted
or otherwise as purchasers may prefer. The
bargain for the cable was closed at about $4OO
We understand that Messrs Tiffany & Co. also
intend to prepare and present a handsome spec
imen of the cable to every State and collegiate
library in the United States, as well as to all the
libraries in Canada and the other British posses
ions. The Atlantic Telegraph Company have
also decided to present a specimen of the Cable
as a souvenir to each and every Telegraph Com
pany now in existence.
The Success of the Atlantic Telegraph
Cable In Europe.
From the Liverpool Correspondent of the Associated Press]
NEW Yeas, August 20.—The decided success
achieved in the laying of the Atlantic Cable re
calls to our memory the despondency which, but
a few months ago, pervaded the minds of some
of the earliest friends in the Company. We re
member that after the second parting of the ca
ble, Mr. Brooking the deputy Chairman of the
Board of Directors, was violently opposed to pro
ceeding any further in the enterprise, and when
he found he could not bring his American col
league and the acting manager, Mr. Field, over
to his way of thinking, he indignantly resigned
hie position, and withdrew from all active par
ticipation in the proceedings. William Brown,
of Liverpool, another director, was decidedly
opposed to any further prosecution of the enter
prize. He would not attend the meetings of the
Board of Directors, but wrote them a letter in
stead, urging the Board to give up the enter
prize as a failure, sell out their property, and
disband the C r ompany. Others of the Directors
were disposed to follow this advice, but Mr.
Field stood out firmly against every proposition
looking to an abandonment of the work. He was
sanguine of success ; he knew no such word as
fail. He contended perseveringly and success-
fully against the arguments and fears of the
croakers, and eventually, through the force of
his own character, seconded by the efforts of
others, he succeeded in bringing a majority of
the Directors to consent to a third trial, and the
result fully justifies his sagacity.
There has been some curiosity evinced to know
who are the American stoakhol lers in the Atlan
tic Telegraph Company, as well as the aggregate
amount of stock owned by them. The last ques
tion we cannot answer fully. The whole amount
of the capital is five hundred thousand pounds,
of which amount we are told Mr. Field owns
one-tenth, that is, fifty thousand pounds. How
much of the remainder is owned In America we
have no means at hand just now to enable ns to
state accurately. The following is a complete
list of the American stockholders : Cyrus W.
Field, Peter Cooper, Davfd Dudley Field, August
Belmont, John C. Green, Wilson G. Hunt, Jacob
Little, A. M. Lawrence, Mathew Morgan, Henry
G. Marquand, G. T. Trimble, B. H. Van Auken,
Most Rev. John Hughes, Estate of Mortimer
Livington, Messrs. A. A. Law & Brother, Dun•
can, Sherman & Co., and Mrs. E, W. Perkins,
all of New York pity ; E. R. Stevens, Saratoga
Springs; and William Dare, of Montreal.
There is a very general desire to learn the
degree of success which the electricians have
met with in transmitting
. the electrical cur
rents through the cable since it has been sub.
merged, but as yet we have nothing beyond an
unofficial trtatement from Valencia, that it is
possible to receive from Trinity Bay about sixty
signals per minute. If this is true, it would
seem to Indicate the possibility of transmitting
by the system of Professor Whitehouse about
three words of average length per minute, and
by the system of Professor Hughes, assuming
that each electrical impulse may be made to
print a complete letter, about ten or twelve
words per minute.
We understand that the Company propose to
give Prof. Whitehouse ample time to test his
system thoroughly, after which Prof. Thompson
will test his invention, which is quite different
from that of Prof. Whitehouse ; after him Prof.
Hughes, of New York, will have:an opportunity
to test the capallities of his most extraordinary
invention, which is, we understand, about to be
introduced upon one of the lines between Lon-.
don and Liverpool.
