ordered into the custody of his master, but
immediately afterwards a writ of habeas cor
pus was \ sued out and the case hrought.before
the Court of Quarter Sessions, where a ques.
(ion of jurisdiction was raised. The gaited
States Matchable whose custody the slave
had been committed, it appears, .refused to
comply with the writ by bringing him before
the court, and was thereupon : arrested for
contempt.. Mr. Howard was also arrested,
but as the slave was not in hie possession, he
was subsequeotly discharged. The final de
cision in thai case has not yet been made.

The new fiscal year of the General' govern
ment commenced on the. first of this month,
says the Hartford Courant, and all the accounts
and estimates were closed on the last day of
June. During the past fiscal year, our im
porta have amounted to about $253,000,000;
Our exports, exclusive of specie, to about
$208,000,000. During the ye4r. ending Juno
80, 1852, our imports were $212,600,000, and
our - exports, $161,000,000, leaving about
$45,000,000 each year as a balance against us,
to be paid for in specie and stocks.
This process has been going forward ever
since 1846, and we present the curious ano
maly of a nation running in debt abroad for
that which, we might as well snake at home.
We pay, for all this excess of imports by our
California Gold,. The labors of our miners
goes to dischargeyyr indebtedness to Europe.
lnetenfof retaining the gold for our own use,
we transmit ft to Europe for perishable goods.
Since 1848, California has paid our debts
abroad to the amount:of $300.000,000. Had
it not been for this gold, where should we
have been ? Had we consumed our own man
ufactures, where would the gild have been.
The articles for which we have thus exchanged
out gold , are such that, with the encourage
ment which would have prevented foreign
competition, we could kayo made ourselves,
and what we could not make could have been
ne rOdily obtained by our agricultural pro
.duets as by gold, while the farmer would have
found a nearer market for theee products at
Our policy has been otherwise arranged,
and we have nothing to do but submit. But

must come to maturity, and payment be re

The Lancaster Expresa toile us that no
such " impracticable idea" as prohibiting the
manufacture of spirits has ever been entertain
ed by the friends of Prohibition—consequent
ly could not have been abandoned, as we men
tioned in our notice of the Cumberland county
resolutions. ye can scarcely be mistaken,
Mr. Express, in speaking of it an abandoned
idea. Not to speak of individual expressions
to that effect, we remember very well that olte
of the bills before the Legislature, and sup
ported by the friends of Trohibition, proposed
that tho manufacture of liquor should be con
fined to a limited number of persons, such as
should be appointed by the Court of Quarter
tillssions of nit, district. A. more odious pro
•vildon. than that could scarcely bo Imagined,
and we are mush mistaken if a majority of
the people of Pennsylvania could be brought to
munition it. The use of Spirits enters so large
ly into many of the necessary and useful pur
poses of life that to speak. of the prohibition
of its manufacture seems to us a mere chimera
of fanaticism. The small traffic is another
matter. The world may well rejoice when it

have always plenty of money to buy the Brno

Per cent. Where do these check-roll sharks
get the money they employ in this unrighteous
traffic? How comes it that the check-rolls

On Mond ' /last week a thrilling and
fatal casualty occurred at Niagara Falls. A
despatch says:
"Throe mon, belonging to a scow wl jolt
came down the river last night, got• into a
skiff alongside the scow, and it is supposed
fell asleep, when the boat got separated from
the scow, and was hurried on by the current
with fearful rapidity toward the falls. This
happened about 'J o'clock last evening. Two
of the mon, one named Andrew Hannaman,
the other a stranger, were hurled at once'over,
the foaming sheet;
. the third,-Joseph Able,
caught hold of a Stump in his fearful passage
and clung to it." . .
' We learn further from the Buffalo papers
that Able, when near the verge of the foaming
cataract, succeeded in reaching a rock, to
which he clung till about six o'clock on Tues
day evening. The anxiety of the people on
shore tg rescue the unfortunate man from'his
perilous situation was most intense throughout
the day. But if the feelings of the spectators
wore aroused to such a pitch, what must have
been the thoughts of him 'who was almost
certain of eventually becoming a prey to the
roaring torrent? Every scheme that human
ingenuity could devise was resorted to; life
boats were brought from Buffalo, and proyis
ions were floated to him, on' rafts. Late in
the afternoon he succeeded in placing himself
on ono of these rafts, and was on the point of
stepping from it into a lifeboat, when, to the
dismay and horror of the spectators on shore,
the boat come in collision with the raft with
BO much violence, as to pitch poor Able into
the water. Still- undaunted ho struck out
boldly.for a small island in the vicinity; but
the current overpowered his already exhausted
physical energies, and, after thus desperately
struggling for life, and tenaciously clinging
for twenty hours to a slippery rock, which
itself could scarcely withstand the impetuous
force of the stream, the victim was swept into
eternity. At the fatal point he raised himself
up to his full height, gave a piercing shriek,
waved his arms wildly and disappeared.
In Dr: O'Meara's works, published some
thirty years since, entitled " A Voice from St.
-Helena," the following Is given as
prediction, uttered shortly before his death,
respecting the ultimate fate of Turkey :
"In the course of a few years Russia will
have Constantinople, the greatest part of Tur
key, and all Greece. This I hold to be as cer
tain as if it bad already taken place. Almost
all the cajoling and flattering which Alexander
practised towards me, was to gain my consent
to effect this object. I, would not consent,
seeing that the equilibrium of Europe would
be destroyed. In the natural course of things
'Turkey must fall to Russia. The greater part
of her population are Greeks, who you may
say are Russians. Tho Powers it would injure,
and who could oppose it, are England, Franco,
Prussia and Austria. Now, as to Austria it
will be very easy for'Russia to engage her as
sistance, by giving her Sortie and other pr0 .91113C08
.91113C08 bcirdoring upon the Austrian dominions,
reaching near to. Constantinople. The only
hypothesis, that Franco and England may over
be allied with sincerity, will be in order to
prevent this. But oven this alliance would not
avail ; France, England and Prussia united
cannot prevent it. Russia.find Austria can at
any time effect it."
It may not ho out of place to mention in
this connection, as confirmatory of what Na -
poleon said regarding the designs' of Russia
upon Turkey, that by the articles of a secret
treaty entered into between NaP'eleon and
°sender at Tileit,luly 7th, 1807, it was agreed
thatßussia should take possession of T,urkoy
in Europe, and pursue her, conquest in Asia,
as far as shq saw fit. It was also . made'part
of the same arrangerohnt that Russia should
assist Frandin obtaining posseseion of IlgyPt s
the Wand of Malta, 'and the fortress of Gib
raltar; and 'all other • rissole except French,
Russian,-Spanish and Italian, were to be ex

The drought of the present season, which
has now lasted nearly two months, has been
most extraordinary. Flowers and vegetables
have been almost entirely destroyed, and the
Corn and potato 'crops have suffered severely.
Heavy rains have however fallen in the last
two days, which we hope may yet save the
latter crops. As dry a season has not been
known for many years. Our borough com

water, such as we hope to have by the time
another summer rolls around.

filr, Editor : I see there are plenty of cor
respondents, for Your own and other papers,
who have given- the public most graphioand
pectiwtlescriptions of the external, and natural
beauty of.this delightful summer resort; Nor
Itave their sketches been overdrawn. „Its wild
beauty and - - grandeur are almost. beyond do.
scription. , At least I don't intend attempting
it. But I think its time the fiublic heard botne
thing of '‘ animatednaturea here. Be it' Ine,
then, to tell you something of the fair beings'
who give life 'and enchantment to this fniry
seclusion in the forest. There are some Bev
oily 'of us most pleasantly domiciled in Mr.
Coyle's spacious and well furnished hotel, and
.if you saw no, you would find us as united; as
fraternal, ns social and as merry a sqt,ns ever
happened together. In truth, when. we look
-around our-joyous eircle.-we wonder-at,-while
we tire prompted to, bless, the Lapp} , instinct,
or impulse, or whatever else you may choose
to call it, which brought us from localities'
hundreds and thousands of miles apart, from
the north, the west, and the. sunny south, to
make up tide happy gathering of persons all
unknown to emelt other before:- Itie-quite a
singular thing to me. bill probably, with your
practical ideas of things i , Mr. Editor, you
would simply explain it by saying. "Oh no,
only another illustration of the benefit of ad
vertising—Mr. Coyle advertised for you in the
newspapers—ho told you Doubling Gap was
the place, and you came." Well, that's the
practical suddenly upsetting the sentimental,
but be it so, Mr. , Editer. We have not been dis
appointed in °buying the disinterested invita
tion at any rate.
But you wishme - to - remember that news
paper space is precious, and that the public
would like to be briefly informed "how we do
kill time," r at Doubling Gap. We don't know
any such fashionable phrase as that hero, I
assure you. Nobody suffers from ennui This
mountain air is too pure, and its strength too
invigorating for languor and indolence. Do
you see that merry party with "pilgrim staff
and sandal spoon," defiling'off into the moun
tain paths—that young pair in the rear, very
much suspected for a few days past of indulg
ing in the " tender passion," slily lagging be
hind the old folks—do you hear the echoing
shout, and the reverberating laugh that ring
through the grand old woods—do you bear
soft music amid the,groves—do yo 4 see the
gay throng anon gathered on the-green sward,
and hear the lively sallies and brilliant repar
tee- which - enliven -- conversation—do - you ob
serve with what cheerful energy they bend
their steps to the common residence, when the
din of the "gong" summons to a welcome
duty? Such are some of the items of morning
enjoyment. In the drowsy afternoon, some
probably take a "nap," while a book and
shady nook profitably disposes of the afternoon
to others. Then after tea,
" Vllhen eve Is purpling cliff and cave,
Thoughts of the heart how sweet ye flow;
The few we like,the one we love,
And the whole heart la memory."
At a later hour, when night has drawn her
sable curtain on the scene of the day's enjoy
ments, take a glance'at our parlor party. Novo
yoU seen a more brilliant assemblage of '‘ fair
women and brave men" lately 2 - Musio and
song aro the enchantments of the hour; but
the stirring violin is about to supersede the
piano, and now
"On with 'the dance! let joy be unconfined
When yowl) aid pleasure meet
To chase the glowing hours with flying feet."
But this is not continued beyond a reasonable
hour. Last evening the usual routine of
amusements was changed, however, a number
of our party having determined on an-exhibi—
tion of - Tableaux. 'Preparations were accord•
ingly made—the scenes decided upon—the
characters cast—and the_ ingenuity and:skill
of the ladies set busily to work in the proper
tion of costumes, &.43. In the evening the large
audience - was duly assembled in the parlor;
but how each brilliant, beautiful, and striking
scene was successively pictured- by the fair
amateurs, I confess My inability to give any
adequate description. The audience were
enraptured, and testified their admiration by
the most tumultuous applause. I send you a ,
programme of the entertainment, from which
you will see what a happy combination of
scenes was presented. The lovely persona
lions of tho female characters I cannot unfor
tunately_so, readily convey to you. •

Tho series of tableaux were concluded amid
shouts of—applause, by the presentation of a
humorous and laughable scene in which-seve
ral ladies and gentlemen appeared. The whole
party then adjourned to. - the ball-room, to
enjoy again the pleasures of the mazy dance.
And-thus, Mr. Editor, I have given you a mere
outline of a day's recreation at Doubling Gap.
Do you think there is any difficulty about
" killing time?" lam sure there is not with
at least . . ONE or US.
filar It is now stated that F. C. Gray. who
committed suicide at Now Rochelle, was in
trouble on the subject of a.bigamy that he lend
committed. Ife had left a wife, it is said in

Mir Another accident happened . at the
New York :Hippodrome ou Thurfakty evening.
While the horse of one of the female riders in
a hurdle race was attempting ttilsop a hurdle,'
he stumbled, and fell upon the Orl, one of his

Ve,bays liadj.wo arrivals From Euroie
the forepart of the week, and :the news is of
omimiderable imPortanee.r The steamer Frank
' lin arrived at York on.Tuesdny . morning,
with dates frOm Liverpool' to the 7th JOY.
At the sailing of the Franklin the Turkish
question was still unadjusted, and the, aspect
of offals Was decidedly warlike. , The Run
shins had crossed tlMPruth, and the Emperor,
had issued a decree, announcing his intention
' to oceopy the Danubian provinces—by way
! of intimidating the Sultan. Ho, however,
disclaims any design to conquer Turkey, but
professes Merely to protect the rights and ,
privileges of the members of the Greek Church
in_ that, ,00untry. _lf, however, the Porte
should persist, the Cznr threatens to move
"forward on behalf of the orthodox faith." It
i stated that the Porto will be able ° to muster
250,000 men—and' that the most zealkus
prpparations were in progress for defence. It
is intimated that &Until a collision occur, Ad
,miral Dutdas,' of' the British Navy, would
have command of the-fleet—while one of the
French Generals would command ling force
that might. land. The warlike character of
Turkish affair's occasioned nn advance in the
price of flour and grain to 4 a. 1 14, _G shillings
per quarter. -
Later from Europe
The steamship Arctic arrived at New York
on Saturday with four days later ad% ices.—
Breadetuffs wore in less demand, with prices
slightly declined. The news is fullof inter
est. Count Nesse'rode has issued a new eir
cular,-more impudent than the last; yet the
Bourses manifested no particular alarm. Mat
ters appear to be becoming raore._and _more
complicated, yet the publio of Europe will not
open their eyes to the possibility of war.—
Austria has seized the opportunity of again
demanding froth Turkey thacoucessions refus
ed to the late mission of Count do Leiningen.
This, if authentiO, forbids the idea of Austria's
neutrality in any coming struggle.
The steamer Northern Light arrived at New
York on 111onday, bringing over $30,0r10 in
gold. The mining news continued favorable,
but business generally was dull. I "Slinst.t city
was destroyed by lire on the 14th. Loss es
timated at $227,090. The Democratic State
Convention assembled at Benecia on 'the 21trt.
of June; and after a stormy session of three
days succeeded in nominating their candidtries.
Very strong effot ts were made to throw Gov.
Bigler overboard, but without success. The
only names presented to the Convention for
the nomination of governor, besides that of
Gov. Bigler, were Richard Roman, the present
State Treasurer, and Henry P. Haven, of Ma -t,
rysville. A fierce battle between the Bigler
and anti-Bigler men for the first two days
argued little for the harmony of the party.
But Bigler was nominated by a decided ma
jority on the first ballot, and several who had
been most earnest in opposing hint cams for
ward and pledged themselves to support the
nomination. Samuel Purday was renominated
for the office of Lieut. Governer.
The Whigs throughout the State are prepa-
ring for the fall election.; Delegates to the.
Convention to be holden at Sacramento on the
' - "Gttroflnly, are already chosen it. Many coun-_.
tics. Capt.. William Waldo has the best pros
pect now of being the nominee fur Governor.
Gen. David Douglass and F. A. Cobb, of
San Joaquin, are also understood to be iu the
field for the same nomination.
111711.DE1l i& LUZEILNE COMM.-A bruthl I
murder was committed in the town of Wood-
Block, Luzern° county, about ten days ago, by
a man named George A. Wentworth, a shoe
maker, who cut his wife's throat with a razor.
The murderer has been arrested and is now
confined in jail.- About the same time, James
Quinn, a boatman, murdered a young woman
by tire name of Maltala Wiggins, on board it
canal boat at Nanticoke. They were both em
ployed on the boat, and getting into a quarrel
he struck her several times on the head with a
hatchet. lie left her lay on the fluor covered .
with blood and made his escape. -
The "harmonious Democracy". in
Maine aro by no
. means satisfied with their
nominee for Governor. Pillsbury was selected
from his known hostility to the Maine Law,
and the Democrats who support that law, can
not, they say, support Pillsbury.
