Dangerous Counterfeits.
There are already afloat, good looking I
spurious Ten Dollar notes, purporting to be
issued by the Bank of Danville. The
vignette in the genuine note, is a scene in
the Rolling Mill ; that of the spurious, is a
spread eagle. They can easily be detected
by this difference ; but people she old be on
their guard.
Asm her. We arc informed that SlOi
counterfeits on.h Rt ,.r xLa 1
are in circulation, so well executed that I
they were received by the Cashier of the!
Bank without suspicion.

The Fourth
Passed off in Lewisburg, in a quiet but
very pleasant manner. The principal fea
ture of the day was the Students' celebra
tion on University Hill, which attracted a
throng of ladies and gentlemen from at
home and abroad, who crowded the lec
ture room of the Academy building to its
full capacity. The board walk was adorned
by beautiful arches of evergreens, in which
flowers were tastefully mingled.and the lee
ture room and rostrum, in addition to sim
ilar embellishments was ornamented by a
small, full-lcng'h plaster statue of Wash
ington ; large engravings representing the
signing of the Declaration, &c. ; and a
splendid fl.ig, the Star Spangled Banner,
made expressly for this occasion, the flag
staff bearing streamers with the motto
Pielas et Liberlas.
Prof. Taylor read the 1 5h chapter of
i Exodue, and several suitable passages from
I should like to see it published."; Three
other Students, Messrs. James T. Lane,
of Free-port Pa. ; J. Merrill Linn, of Lew
isburg ; and John K. Taggar'., of Nor
thumberland, then delivered original ora
tions that reflected credit on themselves,
and were received by the audience with
decided approbation.
Mr. Lane's was an excellent production.
and thoroughly imbued with patriotic sen
timents, w liich derived additional interest
from the torce and appropriate earnestness
of his delivery.

Professor Webster
has sent in a full confession to the Gover
nor and council, stating that he killed Dr.
Park man by a violent blow on the side of
his head wiih a piece of grape vine about
two feet long and two inches thick, and
that it was done in a sudden burst of passion
while Dr. Parkrran was shaking his fist
under his nose, and calling him a liar and
scoundrel. He says he invited Dr. Park-
man to an interview at the Medical College,
to beg for a few days indulge nee till he
could raise the money he owed him, but
Dr. P. would not listen to him, but imme
diately began to abuse him. He says, ' I
never had the remotest idea injuring Dr.
l'arkman until the moment the blow was
struck ; Dr. P. was extremely severe and
sharp, the most provoking of men, and I
am irritable and passionate. A quick
handed and brief violence of temper has
been a besetting sin of my life. I was an
only child, much indulged, and I never
accquired the control over Jmy passions
that I ought to have accquiicd early, and
the consequence is all this."
He asks, that his sentence may be com
muted to imprisonment for life, but it is
doubtful whether his request will be gran-
ted. How impressive is the moral to be
drawn from this terrible case.
OCrThe Star of the North denounces
in strong, but just, terms, the excitement
about the Forrest divorce rase ; and pro-!
tests against having the whole country
convulsed by a quarrel between a play
actor and a fop or if you please, a great
tragedian and a pott. One of this actors
j quarrels involved the largest ol the Ameri
can cities in a riot. Lives were lost, and
the military were called out to fire on the
mob. An ordinary earthquake would

try was commenced some 70 years ago.
The soil, as found by the pioneers, was
for the most part poor, being robbed by
yearly fires of that which would have made
it rich. The farmer, therefore, was poorly
paid for his toil. No manure of any kind
was used, except the little made in the

clothed with verdure, and the air filled with
the delicious fragrance from land laden
with clover. As a consequence, crops of
all kinds were greatly increased, and the
cultivators were highly elated, supposing
that they had at last struck upon the secret
of farming.
The course pursued, was, first to seed
down with clover, then pasture two or
three years, and fallow for wheat; next,
corn, and lastly oats, seeding down again.
Nobody dreamed that it was possible for
the soil to become exhausted under this
kind of treatment ; but alter 25 or 30
years, the farmers began to complain that
their clever seed did not come up. The
soil bei ng defective, was never once tho'i
of as a probable cause. Unsuccessful ef
forts were made year after year, until the
truth was forced upon them that there was
an ingredient lost from the soil, necessary
to the growth 0f clover. As a 7esu!t of
this state of things, our crops became light
again, and our fields, instead of blooming;
with clover, were brown wiihsorrel. Our
Innd became poorer Instead 01 better, until
we were forced to abandon the raUing of
heat, except on newly cleared lands or
those made rieh from the avails of the
barn-yard. j
