studied with the same independence in which
it was written. His sarcasms remind one
sometimes of gibbon, but there is no levity
about them. He does not make Christian
history as orthodox as it really is; he does not
put the Christian Church in its highest place;
he judges Christian doctrines with doubts as

(Me.) papers bring us full accounts of the un
fortunate affair hi that city on Saturday night,
growing out of the opposition to the purchase
of some lil,qoo worth of liquors by Mayor
Neal Dow, for the use Ile .he Meld of the city
agency. Mr. Dow, it is alleged, made the pur
chase in New York, on his own responsibility,
nod by br,inging the liquors into Maine, it was
contended ho had violated the "Maine law,"
as the transfer to the city was not made until
three weeks after the purchase, and not until
after a warrant had been issued against him
for the infraction of the law, end then only by
his own casting veto in the Board of Aldermen.
While the Aldermen were in session the liquors
were seized by an officer, and here commenced
the excitement; The Argus comments with
severity upon the course of Mr. Dow in the
execution of the liquor brW, which, it alleges,
has excited much fueling against him. It ex
presses the belief that the purpose of the peo•
ple assembled was only to spill sonic of the li
quor which they believed to have been illegal
ly obtained, and that if ho bad not appeared
with ; the ,military, no serious harm would havo
been done.

An election was held this week. in Illinois, to
test the popular sentiment on the ,prohibitory
liquor law. As far as heard from (sixty coun
ties) there is a majority of 30 for the law. It
is defeated. Col. Kinney, the alleged filli
buster chief, did not make his appearance yes-
tertlay- morning in the' IL S District Count, _a t
New York, and the District Attorney said he
had been informed that the Colonel had left
'the United States. This agrees with the in
formation in the New York Sun. The tunnel
on the line of the Cincinnati - Railroad caved

men, who were nt work in it. Six were com

killed:—James Pierce,. foreman of the gang,
Dennis Dryman, John Collins,. Philip De Vero
and Patrick Hagerty. James Coleman was
also so badly injured that he is'l not expected
to live. An investigation of the cause of the
accident is being had.
''orimwsivir, DEFALCATION
TI.TION —The city of Lancaster WIEN thrown in
tremendous excitement on Tuesday morning
last, by rumors of n serious defalcation on the
part of tho accounting officer of the Institu
tion, CHARLES llotranrrn. At 9 o'clock a no
tice wns posted on the door of the Institution
that it would be closed until an investigation
of its nlrairs had been made.
A large crowd assvmbled around the Institu-
tionnony- of them persons of limited menus
having small amounts deposited, and some all
they possessed—the savings of years. It was
painful, says the Mang' Daily, of Wednesday,
to hear the lamentations of some of these,
whose all, though little, they considered as
having "taken to itself wings" and down be
yond their reach. No ili,sturbanee or violence
was nttemprod. We uriderstand that nn inves
tigation has been going on, for some days, on
the port at the Trustees of the Institution, and
that a rumor was prevalent on ,Monday that
all was ni-t right, in consequence of which some
ten thousand dollars of deposits were drawn
On Tuesday morning Mr. BorourrEn, the
Treasurer, was arrested On complaint of the
Trustees, end committed to prison for went of
bail, to await his trial, on a charge of fraud
and euthezz'etnent.
The amount of defalcivion is reported to he
$300,000, Before his arrest, Mr. Boron - mit
laid .assigned over to the Trustees, all his real
"tutu-antrictlier property. amounting in
to 4420,000, leaving an. unbalanced deficit es
timated at $lBO.OOO. The capital stock of the
NB6OO/ 0 11 was $50,000, till paid in, which talc
en fihtt i $150,000 leaves slBo,otlo to be lost
by thiqlepositors. The deposits are set down
at ‘illi,60 4 000; and from this statement it is es
titnaditqthat the depositors trill realize from
P 4: to . ::so.' . .per cent. on their deposits. Some
sonsinclined to believe that they'will eveetu
ally realiZe.the whole, and that the Institution
will he again put into operation.

E. Shaeffer, 'President, Col. Beni) Frazer, ilon.
C. Kieffer, Newton, Lightner, Esq., John S.

Jeremiah B. Stubbs', of Fulton township.
Theso gentle Men are all known to be men
„of means, of staid'and thorough business hob•

the Institution fur speculation. The defalca
tion rests alone 'upon the Treasurer, who had
so managed the matter ns to prevent detection
by the Trustees, until recently. The security
of Mr. Bountureat, OH Treasurer, GEOIME Kam:,
A. W,,RIISSEL .Ond HENRY REED, are bound in
the sum of $20,00..
The Daily, of Thurs2dny adds—the interest
in the matter of the failure of the Institution
seemed nearly as great yesterday its the day
before. The subject absorbed all others.
Many persons came in from the country, who
were interested in the Ilistitutitn either as
stockholders or depositors, but no new facts
of material consequence were elicited:
We are glad to learn, tbat the Trustees of
the Institution, and such stockholders as have
beeh consulted, are resolved to sustain it and
put it in operation again, provided their efforts
are seconded by the depositors, whose inter
ests, it seems to us, would prompt such a co
A Meeting of the stockholders rind deposi
tors is called nt Fulton 'Hall, on Wednesday
next, for tho purpose of receiving the report
of the Committee engaged in investigating the
affairs of the Institution, and of considering
any measure that he recommended to protect
and Advance the interests of the depositors.
The effort of the stockholders to save the In
stitution, is coratnendable, and it is to bo hop- ,

depositors. '

ILtrantx, June sth, P. bl.—The Royal mail
steamer Africa arrived hero this afternoon at
20 minutes past 4 o'clock, with Liverpool
dates to Saturday, `the 26th ult., one week
later than the advices per steamer Pacific.
The advices by this arrival are interesting
and_ important.. The Vienna confererwes- are -
to he re-opened. A secret expedition is pre
paring in the Crimea for some important enter
prise. The siege of Sebastopol is uachanged,
the place still remaining impregnable to the
assaults of the allies. Gen. Pellis'sier, the
new French commander in chief, contemplates
making an attack on the Russians 41 the open
field. The motion of a want of .cotitidenee in
the ministry mule in the British Parliament
was unsuccessful. The latest intelligence
from the Crimea says that in an engagement
before the Flagstaff Kittery the French des
troyed the Russian works.
On the 2 1 )th of M.ty, Count Buol had an in
terview with Lord Westtnoreland and Count
Bourgueny, and suggeste i that tho members
of the late Conference meet again. The
French and English ..)linisters could not give
any reply, but it was understood that,if they
assent, Count Bwd, on the part of Austria,
would again attempt to arrange the third poin.
The Berlin papers report that the Austrian
mediatory I j /ropes:xis are that Russia and Turkey
settle between themselves the number of ships
cacti shill keep in the Black . Sea—England
and Franco to keep each two ships therein—
Tut key to µinlet take niit to enter into any
treaty with Russia, unless first submitted to
Feanee and England.
According to the Vienna papers the con
ferences would he re opened. A meeting
would be held on the 26th, without tho Rus
sian plenipotentiaries, and another,ou the 28th,
at which those functionaries would be present.
Lord Palmerston's explanations in Parlia
ment, in regard to this matter, indicate that
the meetings above referred to
.. would be pre
liminary only,
General Pelissier's appointment to the com
mand of the French forties proves to be im
mensely p +pular, and operations on a great
scale ore confidently hoped jor soon. It was
surmised that Pelissier would make a bold at
tempt to cut off Liprandi's army. It was
said that Omer Pacha had offered to take ai,d
bold Simpheropol with his Turki,sh troops it
the French support his advances. The secret
expedition which was recalled front Restsch is
reported to have again sailed—destination un
known. The recent arrival of three French
divisions makes the allied force about 200,000
tnen--any. French troops, 120,000; English
30,000; Turks 40,000, and Sardinia 11,000.
General Pellissier telegraphs under data of
May as follows:
"A eery lively combat against our most im
portant position lasted all of last night, but
we obtained complete success. The Russian
