Bonus. It 1 nid that the ex-Secretary fs a
larmed at the prospect of being made liable for
the value of ull the missing Indian trust fund
bonds., He was the legal custodian of this
property, gave a receipt to bis predecessor in
office, Mr. McClelland, for them, and they are
charged up against him on the books of the
Government.' Whona pnbiicofb'cer is charged
with the keeping of public property he must
account for it, and no person has been more
stern and firm in enforcing this accountability
than Mr. Thompson. Many a poor devil ia
the Indian service, the wagon-road expeditions,
and other branches under the Interior Depart
ment, has felt the severity of. this "inflexible
Administration officer" of "J. B'."" The loss
of money, by. a public officer, be it accidental
or otherwise, even if stolen from-him, or from
the Sub-Treasury in his charge, will not relieve
him, and no power but Congress, in such event,
can balance his account. Let Mr. Thompson's
account be settled, and if the Government can
make out a case of gross negligence on his
part, ho will be clearly liable Xor the los9 of
the bonds; and if report speak truly of his large
fortune, it will not be much inconvenience for
him to pay the amount. -.
Secession asd Political Ecosomt. The
Louisville, (Ky.,) Journal says : "A dis
tinguished gentleman, just from Charleston,
informs us that a fearful reign of terror pre
vails there. The secession authorities, know
ing exactly what atl the rich men, merchants
and persons engaged in business of every kind,
severally have in bank, and what means of
other kinds they are supposed to have at their
command, continually levy upon them accord
ingly, no man daring to resist the levy, inas
much as a wild and infuriated mob is ready to
execute vengeance upon every man deemed
refractory. Our informant says that the deep
est alarm go hand in hand, and that all the
railroads and other roads leading from South
Carolina are thronged with persons escaping
from the Status, as if they felt that a rain of
fire and brimstone was already falling upon
it. If South Carolina be but left to herself a
little longer, the spirit of rebellion and revolu
tion will perish within her borders like a rat
in an exhausted receiver." '
t What it would do ? A prominent NcwEng
iand member of Congress went round among
his Republican associates in the House on the
22d, to ascertain how far they were willing to
concede to the South and make concessions to
appease the secessionists. Eighty-tour of those
present declared against the Crittenden-Powell
slave code, or any proposition establishing
slavery in the constitution that will make it
more pro-slavery than it is now. Many of them
gave it .as their opinion that concessions and
guarantees to slavery, extorted from the North
under the menace of secession, would utterly
demoralize thegovernmentand work its speedy
ruin, as it would intoduce the Mexican system
-of politics into this country, and establish a
precedent for a party fairly beaten at tbe poils
to revolt and secede, unless the victorious ma
jority succumbed and incorporated into the
constitution the platform of the beaten faction,
which would yield to the minority the right
to rule.
A Lady Falls Dead is iter Parlok. About
three o'clock, on Sabbath afternoon, January
JOth, Mrs. Melinda King.wife of John M. King
of Johnstown, while in her usual health and
spirits, fell and expired in an instant. While
seated jn her parlor, surrounded by her chil
dren, who had just returned from Sabbath
School, and were exhibiting to her their books,
tickets, &c. she suddenly arose from her chair,
and falling forward, expired instantly, without
a word, a moan, or a struggle. Assistance was
Immediately called in; and the aid of three
physicians speedily obtained, who applied res
toratives and employed such means as were
within their power; but their efforts were un
availingshe was dead! Up to this moment
she had been tn good health, and had attended
church in the forenoon of that day. She was
alxnit thirtyfive years old, and, leaves to the
care of her bereaved husband four small chil
dren, the oldest of whom is only about ten years.
Seizure: of Arms for the Soutu, rs New
York. The .New York Tribune says that on
the22d, Mr. Police Superintendent Kennedy
seized thirty-eight cases of muskets oa board
the steamship Monticelio, bound for Montgom
ery, Alabama, via Savannah. Each case con
tained two dozen muskets. Tho contraband
weapons were sent off at once to the arsenal in
Seventh avenue. The people on tha v.'uarf said
that three hundred of these cases were ship
ped to Richmond the other day on the steam
ship Koanoke. It is very clear that, in spite
of the explicit charge of Judge Smalley, there
are commercial houses in the city so lost to
all regard for law and patriotic feeling, as to
continue the nefarious business of supplying
the traitors with arms and munitions of war
regardless of consequences.
Blockading the Mississippi River. A bat
tery of guns was recently planted near Vicks
burg, Mississippi, to intercept all steamboats
bailing Irora the Free States. It was at first
stated that this had been done by order of the
Governor, but this is now denied. Quite a
number of boats have been stopped. The
Louisville Journal is informed by a respecta
ble Kentuckian, direct from Ticksburg, that
the object of the batteries is to obtain posses
ion of the steamer Silver Wave, from Pitts
burgh, upon which it was said that United
States ordnance was tQ be transported to the
South. It was very probably the purpose ol
Mr. Floyd, in ordering the shipment of the
guns from Pittsburgh, to permit them thus to
fall into the hands of the Mississippians.
John B. Floyd Indicted Startmno Disclo
sures.' On Friday last. Jan. 25th, the Grand
Jury of the District of Columbia presented si
Secretary J. B. Floyd for malfeasanca.in office,
and conspiracy to defraud tbe Government.
Thompson, late Secretary of the Interior,
Drinkard, chief clerk of the War Department,
and other high Government officials, were ex
amined before tbe jury, and upon their testi
mony, and facts derived from the House Com
mittee in regard to the stolen bonds, that pre
sentment was made. Startling disclosures of
the- most villainous fiauds are spoken of, and
the fact is very evident that the Secession
movement was nothing but an attempt to scut
tle the ship after robbing it.
: Kansas Admission Bill. Tho bill to ad
mit Kansas passed the U. S. Senate on the
21st inst., by a vote of SG yeas to 10 nays, but
with an amendment hitched on establishing a
judicial district, intended toembarrace and de
lay the bill. The correspondent of the Phila
delphia Press says this amendment was effect
ed through the incessant efforts of Senator
Fitch, of Indiana, with the aid of Senators
Bigler, Pugh, John R. Thomson, and Latham.
Tbe object of the amendment is said to be the
anxiety of the Senators from Indiana to in
duce Mr. Buchanan to appoint the celebrated
Judge Pettit United States Judge lor life in
tbe State of Kansas, prior to the close of bis
administration. .' ""'
Why He Did Not Act. Gov. ilicks, of Ma- I
ry land, informed the committee who waited
upon him in reference to convening lii Legis
lature, from information on wnicn ne reuea,
and which was derived from sources not acces
sible to the people of the State, be was convin
ced that the Legislature; ifconvened, wouia as
once declare in favor of the Southern Mates,
and send as ambassadors to those States gentle
men who have been prominent in urging the call
9k the Legislature. - 'That immediately on mis
declaration being made, the city of Washing
ton would be taken by a body ol 8,000 men,now
organized Jor. that purpose. That, civil war
would be caused by this step, and would thus
be brought about by convening theLegislature.
Duty on Sugar. There is, under the exist
ing tariff, a duty of 24 per centum on foreign
sugar. This makes the Northern . consumer
apparently pay two centa a pound more for
sugar than if the duty was removed.' 'For ten
years past this duty has amounted to oveT $5,
000,000 per annum on the average.' In 1857,
it amounted to $12,000,000. If Louisiana
follows the lead of her Senators, and declares
herself out of tbe Union, - it is probable that
Congress will immediately pass an act repeal
ing all duties on imported sugars. These du
ties, levied for the protection of that State,
are very' onerous, and their repeal would be
bailed with joy by the great body of the Free
States and especially by tbe Northwest.
. The Military Forck of Pennsylvania is
about three hundred and fifty-five thousand
men, of which nineteen thousand are uniform
ed volunteers. The arms of the State are all
in the possession of volunteer companies, and
comrpise 22,030 muskets, &c, 4706 rifles. &c. ,
2809 cavalry swords and sabres, 3147 pistols,
&c, 69 pieces of ordnance, being 'six pound
bronze cannon. There are only about forty
two hundred of these small arms of the im
proved pattern, the others are old flint locks,
good for nothing now. This does not present
a very flattering picture of the efficiency of
the militia, if suddenly called upon for service.
: A Boat Fired Into. The. battery on the
beach at Sullivan's Island fired into a boat
from Fort Sumter on Monday night, January
21st.' Three men were in it and as it approach
ed the beach with muffled oars the sentry hail
ed them and warned them off. Failing to
obey, the sentry fired his musket into the boat
when it turned round and went away. Soon
after the sentry heard a noise like the hauling
up of a boat at Sumter. One man is said to be
wounded badly. The object was supposed to
be desertion, but some say that it was a despe
rate effort to run the gauntlet of the sentries
and spike tho guns of the battery.
; The Special Committee's Report. The
House Special Committee on the President's
Message will report two bills at the first oppor
tunity, one to authorize the President to em
ploy the whole naval and military power of the
Government, including volunteers and militia,
to protect the public property, and the other
authorizing him to suspend ports of entry at
his discretion. This latter measure would have
the effect of compelling the .South to procure
their supplies of foreign merchandise in cities
where the Customs regulations and Revenue
laws are properly enforced. It would not inter
fere with the domestic trade. .
: Fort Pickens. It is apprehended in Wash
ington that if Fort Pickens, at Pensacola, be
taken by the Rebels, privateers will be imme
diately fitted out to prey- upon the commerce
of the North. Mr. Buchanan instead of send
ing reinforcements to the Commander of the
small force there has sent instructions substan
tially directing him to surrender in case of an
attack.' If Pensacola should fail completely
into the hands of the Rebels it will become a
most convenient place of refuge for pirates,
and no American merchant vessel will be sale
in the Gulf without the convoy of a man of-war.
New York. Gov. Morgan, in transmitting
to the Legislature tbe resolution of Virginia,
relative to a Conference of all tbe States by
Commissioners at Washington, on the 4th of
February, recommends that four Commission
ers should be appointed by tho Legislature to
meet and confer with the Commissioners of
Virginia and all other States, whether slave
holding or non-slavaholding, who have been
invited by the General Assembly of the Old
Dominion to join in a final effort to avert so
dire a calamity as the permanent dissolution
of the American Union.
Ohio. The Senate has passed tho bill intro
duced by Mr. bchleich (a Democrat) to arm
the State efficiently. It authorizes the organ
ization of fifteen regiments of troops in the
State, not to exceed six thousand men : and
after prescribing that they shall be sober, and
uniform according to regulations, they shall
be entitled f 5vi doilara each per annum for
armory expenses. An appropriation of thirty
thousand dollars annually at the outside would
be required to carry out the law. It will prob
ably pass the House.
The New-Orleans Post Office. Six or
seven hundred bags of newspapers were accu
mulated at the New-Orleans Post Office on the
12th, which had been lying there for several
weeks, under the pretext that there was not
sufficient c!er!iicil force to assort and forward
them.' An order has been issued directing
their immediate distribution, and demanding
an explanation of this shameful detention.
Mr. Slidell's men are too much engaged with
secesion to regard their public duties.
Mr. Slidell osf the President. In the
course of the recent debate on Mr. Holt's nom
ination, Mr. Slidell charged the President with
deliberate deception auI perOdy in tbe gross
est and most oflensive terms, and alleged that
six Senators stood ready to prove that they
conferred with him personally, before his mes
sage, concerning the South Carolina Commis
sioners, and the nllitioT it contained were
shamefully false, ne said otherthings equally
hard to bear. - .-
, Prepayment of Postage. The Post-office
Department announces . that postage , must be
fullv prepaid by stamps on ali letters or pack
ages addressed to Governors, Heads of Depart
ment, and Members of the Legislature of this
and other States, in default of which they will
be sent to the Dead Letter office, Washington,
D.G. Persons will save themselves and the
department some annoyance by conforming to
this order.
Mail Cut Off. The mail between Charles
ton and Pcrnandina, Florida, has been cut off,
because the steamers on that route were with
drawn and appropriated to purposes hostile to
the Covcrnnient. 'Florida is beginning to feel
the benefits of secession, which , her leaders
promised would follow so rapidly.
Rhode Island. The Legislature of Rhode
Island has repealed the Personal Liberty Bill
of that State. The vote in the Senate, on the
motion to repeal, was yeas 21, nays 9: in tbe
House, yeas 49, nays 18.
Mr. Editor: In the Revised Penal Code, Chap.
V.. See. 64, will be found the following:
"If any Cashier of an Bank of this Common-
monwealth shall engage dirccy or indirectly in
the purchase or sale of stock, or any other profes
sion, occupation or calling, other than that of his
duty as cashier, he shall be guilty of a misdemea
nor, ana being tnereot convicted, shall be senten
ced to pay a fine not cxveediagjice ncndr&i dollars.'
Those who think that banking is such an easy
and lucrative business, may not be aware that it,
like every other profession or calling, has its in-
convemeeces. it may oe, and no doubt is, pleas
ant to stand behind a counter and hand out the
shiners to those who may comply with the rigid
by-laws of tbe institution, but when we see that a
man is strictly prohibited from engaging in any
othr business," 'directly or indirectly," the posi
tion loses part of its pleasantness. To be a cash
ier of a bank, involves a great responsibility. while
it completely ties a man s hands, holding him to
his duties as an officer, and preventing him under
a penalty of five hnndrH dollars 'from engaging
or being engaged in any other business. It should,
under soch restrictions be,, not only pleasant, but
7-..W vrr As it is BOisible that this ia not always
the case, ought not this restriction be somewhat j
modified? - 1 .' v Jc.vrcs. '' '
: Petitions for the repeal of a couple sections
of the Revised Penal Code being in circulation
in this county, we below print those sections
in full, so that every one may know what is
asked to be repealed. One of the sectioos, it
will be seen, is designed .to prevent tbe kid
napping of free negroes; the other prohibits
the selling of slaves in Pennsylvania.

The peculiarites of the female constitution an
the various trials to which the sex is subjected,
demand an occasional recourse to stimulants. It
is important, however, that these shall be of a
harmless nature, and at the same time accomplish
the desired end. Hostetter's Celebrated Stomach
Bitters is the very article. Its effects in all eases
of debility are almost magical. It restores the
tone of the digestive organs, infuses freh vitality
into the whole system, and gives that cheerfulness
to the temperament, which is the moet valuable of
feminine attractions The proprietors feel flatter
ed from the faet that many of the most prominent
medical gentleman in the Union have bestowed
encomiums upon the Bitters, the virtues of which
they have frequently tested and acknowledged.
There are numerous counterfeits offered for sale,
all of which are destitute of merit, and positive
ly injurious to the system.
