LATEST- FROM EUROPE.
The steamship Asia arrived nt New York on
Thursday last, ),Ith later intelligence from
Europe. The news is not at all definite in
regard to the Eastern war, hostilities on land
appearing to be confined almost exclusively to
skirmishing between the outposts of the Tur
kish and Russian armies. At sea, however,
hostilities have commenced between the two
powers, with variable success to each. In
England, the opinion gains strength that there
exists at present very little chance of success
in the efforts at negotiation between Russia
& Turkey, by England & France. Both Russia
and Turkey eontinue their active preparations
for a protracted.. war, while diplomatists aro
busied in endeavoring to arrange'a now con
ference nt Vienna, Paris or London. It is
stated in the'English papers that the Court of
St. Petersburi has addressed brief and con
clusive notes to the Governments of England
and FrMiee, announcing that no further nego
tiation with respect to the affairs,of the East,
would be listened le, MO that the part'of Rus
sia is definitively lakenk,and Vint part is "La
Guerce.". Little doubt is entertained in Eng
. land respecting the Czar's intentions. His
armies are now almost ready to commence of
fensive operations on a large scale. It is also
Mated that ho has closed his accounts with the
French funds iri similar manner to the way,
ho disposed of those with the Banleof England.
Hence, it is to be inferred that ha'. has very
littio bold now onthe sympathies of both these
governments—and neither wishes nor expects
it. The 'Sultan on the other hand declares
that the Principalities must be evacuated.
Unfavorable weather was preventing-opera=
tions,to any great extent along the Danube.
From tlio 15th to the 26th of November, it has
rained almost.continually. Omer Pasha had
marched most of his troops back to the pizsi
!ions they occupied before the passage of the
Danube, leaving some garrisons on 'the right
bunk of the river. Gortsehakoff had retired
in a similar manner. In Asia the 'success of
the Turks appears to have been uninterrupted.
They hail successfully defended the fortresi
'of Et t :lslittolae, and captured several other,
fortresses. ; - There has been some sea fighting,'
and it, is reported that as Egyptian steamer
had captured the Russian steam frigate Wid

so rumored is to be started, to be edited by C.
McCurdy, which is to be the organ of the Kun

of the Telegraph, has purchased an interest in

said has purchased the Domocratio Union, with

the public road, on the 12th inst., from the ef
fects of intoxication.
We learn from the Chambereburg Whig,
that a man named Dr. Waz. _WISDIIIIIIST died
snddenly at Welsh Run, on Sunday the 4th ult.
Ho was an entire stranger in the place, having
arrived in it but four or five weeks previous to
his death. During his stay ho resided with
Mr. Henry Sorrell, but laid in old out-houses
about that gentleman's premises most of the
time, in a state of intoxication. On the day of
his death ho was found in an old stable speech
less, and was removed from it in a dying con
dition. His death was evidently caused by
dissipation. On his person among other pa-'
pare was found a certificate froin the School
. bireotors of Dickinson twp, comb. county, da.
ted April Gth, 1853, showing that he had taugbt
school in thatcounty during the preceding five
months. A Mrs. Miller; of Roxbury, dropped'

CANDIDATE' FOR' GOVERNOR.
The Philadelphia Eh ctoe„in"speaking of, the
organization of the,,Whiga for the coming Pn
bernatorial Campaign, enumerates the follete.
ing gentlemen tie being in" the field"for the
Those moat proMinent for the nomination,
liably be selected, are, as far as we canlearn;
Geneva George Cadwallader, ofTbiladelphia,
than whom no moreildlant and chivalrie gee
tlernam. could well be found anywhere—Hon.
Henri 11. pnllerp : of Luzerno r who is well and
'favorably known ,ts a highly popular gentle=
man in North Pennsylvania; lion. James Pol.
ock, of NOrthumberland, another able and
aitliful whiff, who has hosts of friends; Gen.
Wm.' Lorimer, ,of Pittsburg, in whose support
the Whigs of Western 'Pennsylvaniaseem to
rally with great cordiality; Gen Wm. 11. Irvin,
of Mifflin, and Andrew Q. Cuitin, of Centre,
both of whom are eloquent champions of whig
principles. Other names have been mentioned,
but.-we believe.those given include nll who aro
likely to be prominent for the nomination.—
With such material at their command the
,Whigs will be able to select a.caudidate wor
thy of their cause, and arownd.whose standard
all may rally with confidence of'eertain success.
Let it be the aim and object of all, so to con
duct the canvass for nomination as to create no
difficulty, nor beart•burnings which shill last
beyond the nomination, and serve as An cm.
barrassment to united action in Rapport of the
nominee. We have n great duty to perform.
That duty is the redemption of the Keystone
from her present Locofoco Orel loin. Let us
perform it liko good Whigs, like true Penney
e Now the great difficulty is to knots precisely
which of these gentlemen to choose. The
Whig party evidently has a fair prospect of.
being successful in the next contest,,:but this
prospect will avail nothing unless we have for
our standard bearer a man of high ability and
those genuine , personal qualifications which
command respect and secure warm Uttacliment.
Let such a man be earnestly looked for. Übe
nen be found in the above group 'let him be
taken—if not let us look elsewhere. Let our
friends.beware of giving the Whig nomination,
to any person of inferior character, or one of
limited local riputatien. Tho Whig party now,
more . than over, wants a leader—one whose
voice like a trumpet blast will have the power
„to rally in-mighty strength our now scatttred
and dispirited forces. Suoh a man, we hesi
tate not tn_say, they had in-Wm. F. Johnson,
and such a man they want again. We are en
tirely uncommitted to any one. Our only
-feeling is that of sincere anxiety 'to have the
noblest and purest Whig in the State sought
out as our cinidldate and then we shall confi
dently look for triumph.
A letter from Washington says, the oppos
ion to the Administration gathers strength.
The insurgent Democrats court the alliance of
the Whigs, looking to them naturally, in the
House and Senate, for aid and comfort against
the E'xeoutive wing of 'their own party. It is
surprising how many movements have already
been made by Democrats of position and '
fluence against the President and Cabinet, and
what a degree Of, suboess has attended them
all. The Adniniatration candidate for printer.
to tho Senate obtained but sixteen DeMocratio
votes, although the party counts thirty-seven
mem bere•iwthat body: -- The - resolution - or 'bill"
for the decapitation of Peter G. Washington,
Assistant Secretary -of the Treasury, passed
almost without opposition. Now, Mr. Wash
ington is the right-hand of Secretary Guthrie•
The blow was aimed at the Secretary.
The debate in the House, upon Peter G.
Washington's case, furnished highly important
indications of the coming storm. Mr. Money,,
the lending candidate for the Speakeratiri
against Mr. Boyd. took a very active part In
bringing on the discussion and keeping it up.
He was a firm friend of the Administration
until the present question arose. He tookmo
pains to-day to conceal hie real feelings. Mr.
Bayly, of Virginia, and . Mr. Stanton also dis
played anything but an amiable temper towards
the Executive. Mr. Wentworth, of Illinois,
censured the Speaker very gravely for partidli
ty inmaking up the Committees. The call for
the previous question, &signed to out off de
bate and bring the subject to a direct and
speedy vote. was lost by a large majority.—
This looks ominous.
Tim very rough and Savage manner in which'
the Union newspaper denounces all the Demo
crats who had the effrontery to vote against
its proprietor, must have a tendency to keep
the feud alive. Its artiqes, since the catas
trophe, are the best things it.bas bad in its
editorial columns since the inaugural address.
The Sentinel meets the objurgatimap of its rival
organ with defiance, and, at the °lmmo time,
takes care to charge the responsibillity of all
its diatribes against the Senate. Of course,
where two such vehicles of dissension exist,
there can be no:yeace. The schism has reach
.ed,n stage which admits of no reconciliation
IMPORTANT IF TRUE
The New York Ildald'bas speoial informa
tion upon which it places entire reliance, that
milhe 11th day of November, in the city of
London, a most important treaty of alliance,
was agreed to and- signed by Count Walewski
•on the part of Franco, and Lord Clarendon on
the part of England, in reference to the Turk
ish question. The treaty thus concluded be
tween the high contracting pdities of England
and France was despatched, immediately by,
couriers to Berlin and Vienna, with an inti
mation that from the day of its arrival at each
of these Capitals, a period of seven days would
be allowed to the Cabinets of Prussia and of
Austria to determine their assent or refusal to
- enter into an arrangement.. IT agreed to, Well
and good ; if rejected, it was to be understood
that France and England. would take the set
Cement and responsibilities of the Eastern
controversy into their own hands. It is fur
ther understood that from the terms of thin,
treaty, Russia will be required forthwith to
evacuate the Danubian Principalities ; or, that
in refusing, she hazards the momentous 0013-
sequence of in immediate joint declaration . ' of
war from England and France. * As the shirt

Anecdote of a Gate.
-A correapondont of•the N. Y, Home Journal,
writing of gates, tells the subjoined story of e
"I once passed through a door-yard gate;
which did, though unintentionally, give an in
dication of the designer's character. The gate
was acommon one, shut by a chain and ball.
But tbp post, to whiob the inner end of the
- chslit-irAs attached, was carved and painted
in the likeness of a negro, with one hand
raised to his cocked hat, and the other extend
ed to welcome .you in. As you opened the
gate towards you, in going in, the negro post
porter bent towards you, by ajoirit in his back,
end fairly bowed you in. Upon letting the
gate go, a spring in his back brought him up
standing' again, ready for the 'next corner.
This faithful fellow ierformed the amiable fo'r
his master for many years, without reward,
except now and then a new coat—of _paint ;
and dually died of a rheumatic bank, contract
ed in his master's service..? • .
One day last week, a woman residing near
he mountain, about a mile and a half below
Warden's tavern, in Hampden township, whilst
going to Bheaffer's,store, tiiscovered in a dark
and secluded hollow about 150 yaide from the
State 'road, the mangled remains of a flue-look
ing grey horse._ The appearance of the ground
indicated that n'Oonsiderable struggle had ta
ken place before his killer bad succeeded in
, dispatching him,'Whilet the condition of the
blood showed it to have been but recently done.
The head and neck were mangled and cut, ae
though done with a hatchet, the one eye,be
ing entirely extrpated. The legs wore''all
four cut ea_ at the knees. The horse was in
fine order, and had evidently been welLkept.
The shoes "were nearly new and well made,—
with turned up too-pieces—the maker's mark
still visible on them; his mouth indicated an
ego of LI orl2 years. To wh . om ho belongs or
by whom ho woe brought there is a mystery.
The spot has been visited by hunarecle—some
living 6 or 8 miles off —but no one recognizes
the horse. The general impression is that his
owner or rider has been foully dealt with.—
ANOTHER CUBAN EXPEDITION,
Slander on the Girls.
Flume crusty old bachelor; haring been jilted
by his bright particular star, in a fit of des
peration, wrote the following horrid-slander
upon .female woman,' in general:
The girls are all a fteeting show,

Deceitful shine, deceitful flow,
There's not one true in sevcn."
A Waehlngton correspondent of the Tribune
has trustworthy .information from New Or
leans, to the effect that a powerful filibuster
expedition is preparing against Cuba, and will
Bail come time before the middle of February.
It is Intended that the_endre force shall
consist of some four thousand men, led by dß

The enlistments are proceeding with every ef
fort to keep the matter strictly private. Each
man is subjected to the scrutiny of, the Order
of the Lone . Star before being. admitted, and
is required to take an oath not to divulge the
secret. It is believed that at least one mem
ber of the Cabinet is well aware of the move

sail from New Orleans, other-. cities will also
send forth their quota to the army of Manifest

make exhausted tan bark available and valua
ble as manure. Besides his magnificent farm,
he likewise caries on the tanning business.—
Finally after a great deal of expense, and many
failures, ho has succeeded in discovering
method of producing from the tan no efficient
manure. This is his plan.
Ile has his - tan wheeled out ou a level piece
of ground, and leveled. off_ two .or three feet
thick. Over this he spreads a layer of two or
three limbss of lime and over that again a etre
is of tan—then a layer of lime, and so on,-
Re lots tho bed so prepared remain for two
years; at the end of that time he ands a bed

can hardly be surpased by the richness of Itb
product, and the durible,fertility which it im
parts. (Spent ten, two years old is not a bad
