How Coaurbartme vise Bwintmen.—The
story of the Comptenter Indians has already
appeared in print, but there is one point
about the case which shows how the abor.
gibed were wronged. Cernplanter bad re•
calved some fif een hundred nitres of laud
front the Side, Wog upon the Allegheny
:river, and including the present town of Oil
city, and about the year 1800 sold it to &spec
u'ator for two' hundred and eighty dollars.
The purchaser imposed upon the Indian by
giving him two hundred dollars in counterfeit
titles, but Coruplanter did not discover this
until he had surrendered his deed. When be
found that be bad been duped, he demanded
.his dfed, and returned the two hundred and
eighty dollars, and con►idered that the whole
transaction was at an end, and that he was
again peesesser of the lsnd. But the pur
chaser, who was evidently a lawyer, bad re
corded the deed before it was returned to Corn
plsnter, who ef course knew nothing of the
trick, and who thus lost the land and the good
and counterfeit money. Tho transaction was
far from creditable to the white party con
cerned,.and it would be a matter of publio in-
terest to know who be was. •
We understand that a movement is en foot
for the publioatien of a second daily news—
Taper in Erie. We would be glad to welcome
a competitor,, and would not iris?' at all to
see a party in the field supplied' with a good
more of “stainps," energy and honorable en

their lives and pockets insured —Dispatch.
We have been applied to at lust a dozen

a new daily at present. An indertaking of
that sort will involve a loss if $lO,OOO at the
lowest calculatioa before it MI begin to be
made profitable, if ever. In the course of a
few years, when the city grows more popu
lous and wealthy, a field may be open for an-
