called out on Saturday morning by the cry of

-was raging ntdie able, and had the fire not, been
fortunately-discovovcd and checked before much
progress had been gained ineitsAlevouring Course,
a ruinous conflagration would have ensued. . As
it:wav, the injury done was not very great.
Carlisle Light Artillery, Cap.

F. Hunter, wore out on parade on Saturday after
noon, and although not in very great numbers,

marching we thought good, arid many orthe
evolutions in drill in the highest degree creditable.
The Carlisle Ligkt Infantry,•Capt. Sanderson,
took• an excursion re Middlesex, where a grand
parade Came off, in which four or five companies
in the country participmed. With the stirring
roll of the druM, and the strains oldie bugle and
the fife commingled with the hoarse roar of the
raging wind, it verily seemed en Saturday as if
War with his red dragons rode the air.
INSTITUTF:. — .Under this Caine slug°
number of our young men, we are gratified 'to
learn, have associated themselves fur purposes of
mutual improveMent of mind. The exercises of
the Institute consist of dcbatep, lectures, &c. A
library is also to be added as soon as means are
obtained for its purchase. Under the. name of
Franklin, we trust each member will emulate his
'glorious example, and pursue with his I ndustry
and energy, the laudable object of:mil:culture.
IVe have been :mgt.:sled by a. 'number of our
readers to reptiblish the subjoined communica
tion, which appeared in the last "Volunteer." It
speaks of an evil, than which there could not be
a greeter to business men, end also suggests the
remedy, which deserves public consideration and
action. The communication so well and - fully
explains its object, that we can add nothing to it ',,
"There is, however, another evil of alarming
magnitude jai the community, to which, by_yourper
mission, I wish to call public attention, and t h at is
the introdatetion, loy those persona engaged in the
forwarding lousiness, of the vile paper trash issued
by the Penn.:l'm:noddy, Nloyummosong, Berke com
-ty,-Taiwanda-and-Eri e-13anks—and thots - dri ving al - -
most entirely.out of circulation every other species
of currency . . The way, this fraud (for - 1 can call
such financial operations by no softer named is mac
tie,ed upon the farmena c mechanics and laboring
men, awe upon the merchants too, is as follows:
These 'forwarding men purchase from a farmer his
flour, for the purpose ot - sending it to the city, and
agree to pay him city price, after deducting the car , '
nage. 'So far, so good—but now for the sequel.--
These forwarding men receive city funds or specie
for the flour, but instead of bringing this kind of
moneyhemp :with them, the? purchase with it the
'above-mentioned trash at a 111 SWUM of from eighteen
to twenty per cent., and with this depreciated-truck
they pay the limiters for their flour-thus Making
an, inimense_profit inlidalition to the carriage. flat
the 'evil does nut stop here. The farther, from rie
eesrsityilitiya his working men, hie mechanics, and
his:store keepers, with this kind of money, and they
in turn are obliged to pay it oat to others, and thus
in a short time it gets 'into general circulation, rand
drives away every better kind of currency. , The
mercluint, then, when he goes to the city with such
funds on hand, must submit ton -ruinous discount--
and in order to save himself, must make up for los
ses by. raising the prt.m.of his goods. The advance
on ,t he goods is, of course, taken off his customer*
who arc mainly composed of the farmers, mecline. ,
ice and laboring classes, and thus are the mass of the
citizens made to suffer for the purpose of enriching
a few individuals engagedhi the forwarding. business'

taught us by the late State Elections,nnd let poli
ticians, as they value 'the safety of tlie Whig
party, beware how they disregard it. A National
Convention saved the Whig party in 1839, a far
gloomier time in its annals than the . Pres'ent, and
if we would not only save the party, but secure
.to its standard, we must have a National
Convention again -and tho propriety of this course- .
-we shall steadily advocate, believing it to.be_the
only wise and safe course which can be pursued.
A National Convention is the only means which
can again rally

ments of Antt will.. revive the
flagging spirits of the party, and, giVe a 1101,1111-

-That Mr. Clay should be the candidate of the
Harrison party, and that he should receive itrun.
divided support, dews not admit, of a queslion, we,
think, if eminent capadity and faithful service
have any thing to do with
.making up a deism—,
Upon the subject of, adhering toal[r. Clay, the
Philadelphia _Natibrial Forum . has. the 'following
eloquent romarks,..Whielr-we - believe Will be res.
ponded to by our readers :
"We sec nothing in the returns of the ciections
.to indicate that the Whig party hari lost any con
sideinble port of the force with which they elected
Gen. Harrison; or that the rank and file have de
serted our ranks for the destruetive cohorts of the
enemies of American Labor and IIo•ne Industry•
Abn•c all, Wc see no signs that Iknry.Clay is not-j
now. the preferred candidate of the Whig party
for the Presidency, as in, August laSt, when his
name was placed at the head of alines' every
Whig press in the, country, and inscribed upon all
the party banners. We have been taught the im
portance of selebting men of tried fidelity tb our
principles, toinibi'cibly ever again to put in nomin
ation candidates of recent proselytism, or those
whose political life is not identified with the feel
ings and doctrines orthe. Whig neap : - It is in
vain to seck'fot another more adequate represen
tative of the Whig party than Henry Clay. Men
'lnlay, perhaps, be found whose more flashy traits,
may render them more popular, but there is no
one man in the whole nation who, like Henry
Clay, is "the soul, the embodiment of Whig prin.
,ciples." We have the assurance of thirty-five
years of continuous, devotion, to the' broad and
comprelic;nsive policy upon which the Whig party
has been built up—of no iinfililing support of that
great cardinal principle, Protection to American
Industry—of a character tried in the furnace of
political persecution,and which has yielded neith
cr to thct:blandishmonts of power, nor to the
timidation of political enemies—of a noble intel
lect, and a masterly eloquence, unchangeably de
voted, alike in prosperity and,. adversity, to the
welfare of the nation:--that Henri , Clay will never
prove false to the friends who put their trust in
his frank and generous nature.
Whatever universal sentiment pervades the
Whig party, fras its origin with flenrY Clay. In
- the darkest hour of gloom, when that party had
sunk into a feeble but undaunted minority, the
sight of our chosen standard-bearer, in the Senate
of - the - Caen, breasting with the gallant, berd
around him, the progress of arbitrary power,still
kept alive the fire of_patriotic hope, and saved us
from utter overthrow. Shall we then, in this
period of temporary reverses, desert the man to .
whom, more than any other, wo are indebted for
political salvation—whose name is not only the
boastof the Whig party, but is one which reflects
a lustre upon, the whole'eountrYl Yu! . no the
World would cry shame upon could we be
guilty-of an not of-suelt=base--ingratitißle:-Wei
need no other motto tohuickeniour slumbering
masses--to stir the heart of a generous nation to'
the reward' of its' best benefactors-than' the glori
ous battle-cry of "JUSTICE TO HARRY CLAY
OF THE WEST Up! up? then, with the
banners—emblazon it upon-all their ample folds—
fling,them to , the breeze, and there•let Ahem float

Under the authority of this law, the point
most. convenient' for that inteisection will be
where the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad approach
es- 'the margin of the Potomac, river, near Fort
Frederick, which is - Acta It: miles cast or Han
cock and-iiTmiles cast of Cutnbe rland vhb point
of intersection is 16 miles or less from the Frank
lin Railriaid; aiidif this„connectien were made,
'there would then be a continuous Railroad from
Philadelphia to Cumberland, Maryland, a di;
tunce of 259 mike. ,It would also intersect the
Chesapealc and Ohio - Canal. in crossing it near
Fort Frederick. By this connection, the Penn
sylvania improvements would ,be advantdgeously
connected with the Maryland iinprevenitts, and
furni?sli an eguivalentforilleConneetion of the
Pennsylvania improvements, by the Maryland
improvements, extended into our borders by the
_Tide 'Water Canal and the Baltimore and Susque
banns Railroad. .. •
The distance of Railroad from Cumberland to
Baltimore is 177 miles, and from Cumberland to
Philadelphia, by the Pennsylvania railways, is
9.59 miles: Travellers for Philadelphia, or cast
of it, going west, would be attracted through
Pennsylvania, passing through its many flourish
ing, towns,hy a shorter railroad route, than through
the State of Maryland. The proposed connection .
would not only benefit Philadelphia, in connect.
jog it with a railroad to Cumberland, with all the
advantages arising hereafter from its extension
west, but also connecting it for the purposes of
trade and transportation with the Cheiapeak and .
Ohio Canal, and afford to the State of Pennsylva.
nia, the Harrisburg and Lancaker Railroad; the
Cumberland Valley Railroad and the Frahltlin
Railroad Companies c all the advantages of a great
increase of travel and transportation.
Unless something is done speedily to effect this
connection, the travel and trade to and from the
west will he diverted from Pennsylvania, to the
injury of the State, to the great disadvantage of
Philadelphia, as well as several iailroird corn
panics, in which our citizens, as well as the State,
are largely interested.
Unfavorable as the titles are fur the-eXpenlliture
,of money un railroads, it_does_sebin-to be indis
pensable for Pennsylvania interests, that the
Ismail link of 16 . miles be constructed, by which
' a long hne of Pennsylvania improvements, from
Philadelphia west, would - be connectedwith. the
Maryland - improvements. We would not only
have the travel and 'transportation on those 'l6
miles, but have our travel and transportation
doubled on 176 miles of railroad communication
from Hagerstown to Philadelphia. It behooves
our State authorities, 'Philadelphia and the rail.
road companies interested, to see to this. There
is still credit enough to end this small:improve.
