ghtHirt, a paper published in C.unbrii county,
a communication sotting forth that the Rev.
John Chambers, who now launches his feeble
thunderbolts at the Know Nothings was, in the
early days of Nativeism, an ardent friend and
supporter of L. C. Levin, the incarnation of
hatred to foreigners of every grade, but more
particular to his own country men, the Protes
tant Irish. -- He also, it is alledged, went fur
ther instimulatiug the popular passious against
Roman Catholics, at the period of the South
wark and Kensington riots than almost any
other man. We can readily believe all this.
It is characteristic of the man, and illustrates,
in connection with his present course, what
an utter demagogue and truckler he is
No Letter Yet!
That "private letter" from Gov. Bigler to
which the Rev. John Chambers referred in
his. Bedford Speech, has not yet been pub
lished. But the Rev. gentleman himself has
written a letter which we suppose he designs
as a substitute. This however won't answer.
It tea not t letter from Rev. John Chambers
that teas callep for, but the "private letter"
from Gov. Bigler that authorized Mr. C. to say
what he did about the Governor's views and
purposes in relation to a Prohibatory Liquor
Law. Until this is produced, the verdict of
"cjisatisfactory''' written against Gov. Big
ler by the State Prohibition Convention, will
be maintained and acted on by all true friends
of the cause. Hollidaysbttrg Register
California.' According to the last advices,
to August 1st., the differences in the Demo
cratic ranks have assumed a form similar to
the position of the Hards and Softs in New
York. The Democratic State Convention is
said to have been a turbulent affair, and it end
ed in a complete split, and the nomination of
separate tickets for State officers. This will
probably give the State to the Whigs, and they
will gain a United States Senator in place of
William M. Gwin. whose term expires March
4th, 1855. The diflerences in the party arises
from the same causes as those in New York.
No particulars relative to the convention have
yet been received.
Railroad Accident Two Ladies Killed,
An express train on the New York Central
Road, which reached Albany on the 29th, ran
over two ladies at Canastota, seven miles from
Syracuse, instantly killing them. The ladies
were just descending from the mail train going
West, which was waiting for the express train
to pass. Unfortunately, they got out of the
wrong side of the cars, and were caught by
the passing express train and horribly man
gled. They erere literally torn asunder, their
limbs being rent from their hodies. Names

ging at Harlem a few days ago, found a box
containing two or three thousand Spanish dol
lars. It was deposited there for safe keeping
by Samuel Benson, during the French revolu
tion while he fled to the mountains of Fish
kill. A tree was planted over the'spot, but it
died and was removed during his absence,
and on his return the burial place was lost to
his memory. The laborers who found the
coin threw down their picks and shovels, filled
their pockets, and started on a time.'
Hard Road to Travel.
The Nebraska Orators have a "hard road to
travel." The Lafayette Journal says, Holman,
recently made a speech at Milan, Ripley coun
ty, to three or four hundred people. After he
had finished, a vote was taken on the Nebras
ka Bill, and only one solitary individual voted in
its favor. Poor Holman, we imagine, must

three thousand dollars, to avert tne genu, and
by an unperceived substitution, she took the

IMPORTANT REDUCTION IN POST
AGE. We congratulate our subscribers and
the reading public generally, on the cheapness
with which they can now receive our reprints by
mail. The postage hitherto though gradually
reduced since 1844 has always operated as a dis
couragement to their circulation in places inac
cessible by expresses or other modes of regular
private conveyance. Hence, as yet they have ob
tained but a comparative meagre mail circulation
We hope now that the postage is merely nominal,
a new impetus will be given to these valuable
works, and that no Post Office within the U nited
States will remain unvisited by at least one copy
of the tour Ueviews and Blackwood Magazine.
The Postage on Blackwood and the four Reviews
is now but 72 cents a year, and the subscription
price is but S3, and when taken with any of the
four Reviews but S2, a year!
