Destructive Fires.
A very considerable amount of property 11/19
been •destroyed by fire in this ccointy since our
last publication. .On Wednesday morning last
aboutfi o'clock, the barn . o f Mr. Philip • Black;
in Dickinson township, was discovered to-he on
fire; and being in the country, before sufficient
assistance could be-procured was consumed.--
Aboiii-an-hour after, Pio
..barn of Mr. black, a
'brother of the first, was also discovered to be on
fire and was also entirely destroyed. With these
!barni were burnt several steels of grain, a car.
.rlage and some other things; making the loss very
considerable, although we have not heard this ex
aet 'irniount.
- Both of theso fIIrCE; wcro considercd to bo.the
work of an incendiary.
On Thursday evening Nast, -the barn of Mr.
• Robert Bryson,,inAllen township, Was burnt to
the ground, and with it five mules and two horsesi
which were unfortunately burnt_ to death before
they could be rescued from the flames. These
were the principal loss, the barn being not a very
valuable bnilding. The latter fire, we understand
had its origin in the want of proper care •in
wagoner who went into the barn after night with
a !anthem and accidentally communicated
to some of the combustible materials in the
Elegant Parade.
The company of U. S. Light Artillery, Capt.
Wasmscrox, stationed at the Garrison, near this
borough; paraded in town on Thursday morning
last, in full uniform. The company numbers about
seventy very fine.loOking men, and with their
equipments and field-piecea make a very formid
able as well as elegant appearance. Capt. iVASII
'.iNGTON is a soldier of experience, and his corps,
when ever called into action, will acquit them
lelves nobly and gallantly. • .

'Seventh Lecture..
The seventh lecture of thecoursabeforethe Alert

treated hiasubject- 4 .' , Huisayo"rriiiistYle of min
-sled satire;hurnor and pleasantry', very entertaining
to his audience, notwithstanding many of his most
'caustic. witticisms hit hardest those in whose ears .
their prosperity lay. •
_After seine opening-remerks upon public credrilif

deceptionsand - delusions -whichAnake_
up the category of Huinbugs, and find crowds of pros
elytes, howe'ver enlightened' and cultivated the age
may boast itself, and however ridiculous and pre
posterous the 'deception may be.: Commencing
with the beautiful girl, who, distrUstful of the suf

out in some obscure alley the miserable hovel where
some Oiling is acting the Sybil, to have her ” for-
tune" told and-a knowledge of her future' lord' re-
Vented to her--,the lecturer proceeded to expose the•
many humbugs of greater Consequence, in Medi
cine; Religion and Politics. Iq a strain of severe
sarcasm he laid bare the many deceptions of ancient
times, which; exploded centuries ago, haVe been re
vamped in delude the present age.rnuackery in Med
icine—the delusions uf Mormonism, Millerism, &e.
in Religion—and in PciTics the humbug of Dema-
Toguei em, Legislation, antrperty -warfare; in - which

points of the lecture, without any of the interesting

Small Not es. -
There is some probability, that a law_will be
passed by the present Legislature,,granting trio
banks authority to issue rnd!. notes upon their
uwn credit, in place of the Relief notes. Mr.
Headly, a luctaoco Senator, intimated a favorable
disposition to such a course a fewdayiragp in de
bate, and it: is said a number of loco foe° mein-.
bers.of the House are in favor. of it.
A lecturer on Millerism is holding forth daily
to very large, audiences in Harrisburg.. Ho has
made sundry converts, it is said, and produced a
great excitement in that Wrong..lb_
..We observe that the gditor of the Gospel Pub
lisher in Shiremanstown, in this County, is a

Sensible—quite So!
The Volunteer publishes the proceedings of a
Loco Foco meeting in West Pennsborough town
ship, in this County, one of the resolutions of
which declares the meeting to be in favor of the
emission' of Sinall notes by the Banks, to take
the place 'of the; Relief notes. The meeting
also declares that "the evils under which the
community labors are caused by the want of it
proper circulating medium, which is of vital im.
portance to all trade and business."
Now. gentlemen, that-is candid and honest.—
Distress and difficulty do exist in the 'country,
and are caused by nothing else than the want of
e "proper circulating medium." Such a medi
um as the U. S. Bunk furnished the country in
its former palmy-days of prosperity, and such a
currency as,—if the people would only discard
the idle cant of the demagogues of the day, and
open their eyes to their true ihterests—wo might
have again. Restore us but the currency of 1830,
and the now desolate places of our country would
soon - blossom as the roie, 7 -the paralyzed and
prostrate energies.of our people would spring in
to-now life and animation, and prosperity and
happiness at once illumine and gladden the coun
try. E•
„Will the members of this meeting remember
their present opinions in 1844, when National
questions are to be voted upon? • Or will they
be again frightened from acting accord:n• to
their true interests by the' bugaboo cry of "mon

This eminent citizen passed through our bor.

informed it was vilifying to Gen: CABO.
Upon the approach of: the Cars to town,•a salute
of artillery was fired, announeing his arrival.—
After reaching the rail road bridge at theeast'end
of the 'town; the' care' cars' stopPed and 'the. General
alighted, when he was met by a Committee, the
three fine volunteer ,companies *of our ,borough, •
and almost the • entire mass of our citizens; who
had assembled to greet him.. The distinguished
stranger was then placed in a carriage, attended
tiiGen. S.' Alexander,' Rev. J. V. E. Thorne and
Dr. G. D. Foulke, of this

procession was formed by the military and citi-

chief marshal, end. Col. Armstrang_Noble—and
Capt. Samuel Crop, assistants, by 4fiom the Gen

Here the procession stopped, and the General
alighted, and attended by 'the committee ascended
to the balcony Of the Hotel,- where he was met by
the Faculty of Dickinson College and. a large
numbeicd, citizens. S. Duindtr ADAII, Esq. diet
welcomed him to the borough ,on behalf of our
citizens. in a brief but exceedingly neat and per.
tinent address, which was substantially as follows :
HomesEn Sia :—The: citizens of Carlisle by
whom I Lave been deputed, to welcomeyou among
there, have in the arrangement made for your're
.ception labored no effort at, empty pageantry, Or
,idle ceremony. 'Not prompted by. any motive of
gaining favor for . themselves, or of making an
outward manifestation of esteem unfelt, and sep
orated by no feeling of political favoritism, they
have assembled 'to hail with heartfelt greetings
one whom the "delight to honor."
In this our beloved country the well-tried and
faithful public. servant has ever .a home in the
hearts of his countrymen, and to them no one of .
the living sages and patriots whose names adorn
the page of America's history ie more endeared
than he whom I address. -
Ho who signalizes himself as a bravo Captain
in the armies or his country;: commands hie
country's gratitude; he, who as a Statesman evi
dences ability, firmness and honesty, secures his
country's respect. Upon the American people,
yotr, Sir, have 'this twofold claim. Equally in the
Field, in the Cabinet, and in-Legislative councils,
have your patriotism end honor been 'tested and
never found wanting, and you now return to your
native land from a •mistion laved with an addi-
tional gem glittering in your coronet.
The short time you remain with ua .will not al
low the recital of the oats - of your public life
which haie raised you to an eminence where the
world may behold you: We can only give the
assurance that .Ave..know and appreciate your
The consciousness of having faithfhlly perform.
ed every public duty entrusted to you, will render
your-declining years as calm & Serene, as those Of
your past life have been useful..
We greetyou then as the soldier and the states
man whom we love and honor, and. welcuinc you
to our midst.
Gen.Ciss, at distance we stood' could not
be heard distinctly, but waif understood to reply
as follows:
Sin you, and.thnso whom•you repro.
sent,for the,kind sentiments expressed towards me.
Ikly public services und•the character you give to
them have been rather the remilt of the gcnerosi
ty - tif my fellow-citizens than of any merit of my
own, Since I have come into Pennsylvania, I
have had-from-her people flattering evidence of
their respect, and this further testimony.of regard
I shall never cease to remember with gratitude.
Three hearty cheers ascended from the crowd
at the closeof the address, and the ceremonies
then ended.. Gen. Cass remained in town about
an hour and a quarter, during which time a great
number of citizens embraced the opportunity to
be int7oduced and shake him by the hand. .

The Late Earthquake.'
The Earthquake of the 9th instant appears to
have been felt very generally throughout, the
West and South-west. It is noticed by the pa
pers of Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, MissStith

stated to be the Marchioness of Lavalette, (Mrs
Wells) Mrs. Thorne and Mre. Benham.
Ache( to the States.
In the Indiana Legislature on the Gth inst.
Judge Ewing (formerly in Cohgress) made a ro.
port on behalf of one of the standing committees,
in which Mr. Johnson's plan of relief to the States
is spoken of with much favor. Five hundred
copies of the report wero ordered to be printed.
A large meeting was held at Havre-de-Grace on
Saturday, at which resolutions were adopted, op
proving the plan of relief to the States proposed
by the Hon. Wm. Cost Johnson.
Would it not be well for people in this gusher
who are in favor of 'this measure, to take some
steps, either by public meeting or petition,to make
their feelings known to Congress? The people
should speak out now when they have an oppor.
tunity of being heard.

Mr. Bitoenec, of' Delaware comity, and unanimAs. l
ly adopted:
Whereas, The Whig citizens of various sec.
Gon' of Pennsylvania.haire;in their primary meet.
ings, suggested the propriety of holding. a State
Convention at the Seat of Government, and have
elected Delegates to attend the same, whose'ob.
ject it shall be to avow the high respect.for-and
confidence in the patriotism, integrity and abili.
tics of HENRY CLAY of Kentucky, entertain.
ed by a large portion of the people of.this Com.
nionwealth,. as well as their preference for him as
a candidate•for President of the United States—a
station which he is pre-eminently fitted to adorn,
by his lung experience in public affairs, his com.
prehonsive system of policy adapted to restore and
preserve tlle prosperity of his .country, his exal.
ted virtues and transcendent talents; And where.
as it Is necessary that a day should be. fixed for
the assembling of such Convention, and action
yet remains to be thelubject in many
counties of the. State: Therefore • .
Resolved, That it is respectfully recommended
by this meeting of Whigs members of the Leg's.
!afore that the proposed Convention of the friends
of flxurreCiAir,•be held at Harrisburg, on WED.
NESDAY the 22d of FEBRUARY next, and
that. the hig citizens of the several counties
who have not yet acted upon this subject meet .
' and elect such number of delegates as they may
deen - expedient to represent them on that occa
sion : for the promotion of which object this meet.
ing confidently rely on the known zeal of those
to whom it is addressed in favor of "Harry of the
West," and the high appreciation entertained by
them of his character and the indispensable ne.•
meg ty of his services,th the welfare of our country.
On motion,Resolved, That the Whig papers
throughout tle State-he requested to
,publish the
proceedings of this meeting. • -
Tile proximity of Cumberland county to the
place of holding the Convention, and the cheap ,
and easy facilities which the :central and lower
portiim elle people of the County-possess for get
ling there, make it incumbent
.upon every true
friend of. Henry Clay 'to see that Cumberland is
well and-truly represented. . It will be seen that
it is contemplated to hold- a MASS CONVEN.
TION, and therefore thievery genuine friend of
the belov'ed and distinguished Statesman in the
county, is invited to ho a delegate. Let us . then
turn Out, nein the glorious Harrison campaign !
The. Harrisburg Intelligencer' thus alludes to
the-importance of this Convention.— This -move
ment, says that paper, - is ono of the highest
portance to the friends of the cause, • and if welll
attended, will not' fail to be prochictivc of great
good. A plan of organization may 'be matured
at this Convention, which will unite tho party,
consolidate its strength, and give union energy,
and efficiency of action to the friends of the Great
American Statesman, which wr o moc to Sc.
lure to lain the vote - of Pennsylvania for tire Pre.
sideneyin 1844. Immediate, , _thorough and vie.-
oroys ORGANIZATION is necessary. Without it,rlo.
feat is inevitable—with it; sucCass - is rendered al
most certain. It was abundantly demonstrated
in 1840, that.the Democratic party in Pennsyl
vania have the strength tooarry the State at any
time, if they can get out i th eir whole vote. This
is all that is necessary.' pr g anize the party pro:
pedy, and the vote can be brought .out.
Let this Convention, then, be well attended by
delegates from every part of the State—let a well
digested plan of operations for the campaign be
matured—and let that plan be carried out with
energy and efficiency, and depend upon it the vote
of the "Keystone" in 1'844, will be given .to
HENRY CLAY. The people ore tired of the mis.
rule and corruption of the party-in power, and if
shown that we have confidence in the success of
our cause, and carry it on with spirit and vigor,
they will flock to our standard, glad of the op-
portunity to secure a change of rulers, and thro'
thorn tlM'adoption of measures in the State and
National Governments which. will once more bring
back the country to. its former palmy state of
prohpority and happiness.
Legislative Printing.
• The amount paid for State printing in New
York from 1835 to 1839, five years, was $lB4-,
996 69 ; averaging $36,999 33, for each year.—
The total sum paid from 1840 to 1843, three years,
was $137,954 69, averaging $45,651 56 for each
year. This does not include anything for print
ing- the final report of the Geologists, which for
the last year may amount to $ ( 8:000 . or $9,000.
The, above statement, says the Harrisburg
Telegraph, we believe, includes the printing of
the laws, and all the printing done by the State
Printer for any or all of-thn departments. •
Now let us look for a moment, at the . cost Of
the Legislative Printing of Pennsylvania, for the
last six years, without including either the print
ing of its Laws in English or Geimanthe bind.
log or the- printing of nay of• the departments.
The Mewing statement_w_as_conderise_d_to the
House, by Mr. iIIiCEMAN:in his remarks in'favor
of retrenchment in printing. It' has been made
by us heretofore, with the exception of the amount
of last year; but its repetition may be of use at
this time, when the people are taxed, sorely taxed
to sustain such extravagance, and at the same
time deprived of the means of payment, by 'the
ruinous measures of those that bind' the burthen
upon them. It la taken from the Journal of the
two Houses, and if doubted by any one, can be re.
leered to.

the late appointment by the Governor of his son
as Sheriff of that county, itiMO 'gentle terms.—

position,.from the 7tliiiction of the- Gth article
of the Constitution of the State; which reads as
follows : ..
"No person shall be appointed to any office
with in any County who shall nut' have been a
citizen and an inhabitant therein one year next
before his agOointment, if the County shall have
been so long erected."
.Mr. Porter, it appears went to Philadelphia in
May 1842, and was appointed' Prosee k uting At
torney, and iW\December IA Father appointed
Lim Sheriff. The writer thus showing that he
(Porter) has not resided in the county "one year
next before his appointment," goes on to show
that the titles of property sold by him cannot be
valid, nrid urges upon . the Legislature the nsees.

Society of Andover, entitled " The Eloquence of

"Orin I be wrong in sayirfg that a Christian

heart with pretences of friendship; flattering to
Cajole; bowing where they feel no respect, and
promising services, while they intend to abandon,

true sense of that honorable tern), firm in high
principle, and dignified by integrity,; frank with
out bluntness, kind without flattery, gentle with
out weakness, exact without formality, character.

or impertinence; ever• mindful of his neighbor's
feelings, tolerant of his infirmities, and patient
with his mistakes; never intrusive nor yet bash

the more.feeb e; yielding scrupulous reapect - to

man not in outward garb only, though of that not

and religion without sanctimony ; rebuking scan-,
