Now. of the Week.
-- The Clinton kraine.eal says the Legislative commit ,
tee appointed to investigate the affairs of the bogus Basks,
An Itch as its members lacked experience in such beteiseelci
succeeded in exposing the eoudition of these institstious
sugietently to show - their utter insolvency. Amongst these
~anti was. one located at Shamokin. A New Yorker nes.
ed Robinson, was the principal proprietor and operates of
the concern. •Since his exposure by the committee, be
cum.,: oat with a "defence" that proves him doubly a vil
lain. There is notbing in his statement that in the least
extenuates his attempted swindle, but he endeavors to es
cape odious by making infamous charges against others.
]tow destitute of truth these are may readily be inferred
by au examination of one of them. Re Pays the bogus
Banks siere the offspring of what he chooses to term the
• Sunbury and Brie Railroad Swindle." Now when it is
recollected that these Banks were chartered in 1857,'and
the Railroad bill was parsed to 1858, a year afterward., it
will be seen that the offspring rouse In life a year before
the parent bad existence, if thie lyteg.Robinaein tells the
truth " He seems to have acted upon the idea, quite pre.
valeta in New York,"that it is an easy matter to terhidle
Yenneylvania. He made the attempt and bet the little
capital he had in the nperatiuu It is an old adage that

So fhe latest new, from tho Camp of the Army 111 to the

„,..ing forward in Utah, and the Wattle re.ideuts were to
rota on an independent wart f r candidates to fill the 4.
Ines now oc-upiod bt member, of the Mormon priesthood.
A "Yasuo"-ticket fur Territorial and County Officers bad
been put in nomination in Salt Lake Cuy, the more liber
al and influential Mormons being placed on the ticket with
Gentile candidates. Politics were quite lively at the date
t our last ',deices Repudiation ot the Mormon currency
—the autos of the "thereat Currency A 454.Ci316 , 13"- -was
the last nitiviktnatit of IheNortnou lenders, and the effect
ut lb,: ID
i / as great dissatisfaction among the people,
the !inutile st eepers refusing to receive the notes, which
formerly poised current In payment for trade. The recent
rumor that Batoa.lt T, ran and a few of his friends had
lied from the terr.tory, is corrected , BNIGH•111 left the city
for a pleasure excursion, but bad returned. From the
Army, at Camp Floyd, we learn that the Volanteer Batts.'
ion had been dismissed, sad left on the 19th ult., for Fort
Leavenworth, Where it is to be disbanded. An Army or.
der, issued by Gem. Johnston, speaks is eomplimentary
terms of the Amos and men of this battalion. Another
order dipeonneets the battalion of mounted riflemen end
the Third Infantry from Gen. Jonserox's command, and
orders those corps to New Mexico. The army remaining
in camp was in excellent condition.
—The Canada mails bring tidings that Ez•President
Pierce was, on the Stb lost, in Switzerland, preparing to
leave fur Notbera Italy. All along the route, from Libson
to Marseille, he bad been the recipient of distinguished
cwolideration from public officer, and pirate citizens.—
At tlibraltar, the senior i otheer in command of the British
os'lral forces at that point extended marked courtesies, and
urged the Ex President and Mrs. Pierce to take passage
for Tangiers scrum of her Majesty's public armed vessels.
&t Marseilles die Preach authorities, beaded by the pee.
feet and the military commander, were especially attentive
and zealous in acts of hospitality. The health of Mrs.
Pierce, we are sorry to perceive, does not appear to have
been substantially improved.
On the lath Inst. a riot occurred in Davenport, lowa,
an - consequenee of the bankers of that pleas refasiag to re
deem the notes of the Florence Bank, of Nebraska, which
they bad pot ti circulation. The mub assailed the. bank
ing house of Cook A Sergeant, and the reeldertee of Mr.
Cook with brickbats and stones. On Thursday swain
fifteen Viindred men, principally Germane, aseanbled in
the courthouse yard, and alter organising, resolutions were
passed calling upon the banker, to redeem the notes. A
Commlttee was appointed to wait upon the bangers, sad
the result has been that a portion of the notes have base
redeemed, and the redemption of the midge is promised
between now and a eat Spring. At one time it looked as
though there would be a general row. The military were
under arm but were not called out.
—James Dowling, an Irishman who bad been employed
but two days as barkeeper in • 101/ roggery im the neigh

through the heart, as it is supposed, by a man named

Dear Sir: In' the New Yea Tfirses of the
16th islet, a communication appears over the
signature of ;08ZPR B. ROBINSON, purporting
to be an exculpation of himself from charges
preferred &pinet him in the report of the Coins
mittee of the ,House of Representatives upon the
organization of the Shamokin Bank The corn ,
muskmelon consists principally inithe most vio
lent denunciation and abuse of the Sunbury and
Brie Bail Road, the Banks, the Legislature and
the people of Pennsylvania generally, and is of
character to require no comment or notice as a
whole, bearieg as it does its own refutation upon
its fabe. The Erie Gonne awl the Conneantvitle
Courier oopy a portion of Robinson's letter is
he introduces my name, as one among see,
eral others who "was to be
,tsceid" one thousand
dollars, for what consideration does not appear,
for even Robinson has not the hardihood to
charge me with having had anything to do with
the organization of the Bank.
Now, sir, I desire to say through the columns
l our paper that if such a thing ever "was to
bc,' that Col. Curtin, Hon. Daniel Taggart and
myself were each to have reoeived one thousand
dollars on amount of Idr. Robinson's purchase
of the Shamokin Bank, I never knew or beard
of it until I saw it , ju the New York Times a few
days since. I bad nothing whatever to do with
the subscription or organization of trip Shamo
kin Bank ; never saw or beard of Mi. Robin
son until be became connected with the Batik ;
I never counseled, advised or assisted in its organ
isation; I never rendered any aid in procuring
its charter or had anything to do with it what
ever • I was never in Shamokin nor da I know
the Commissioners of the Bank ; I never receiv•
ed one cent trom the Shamokin Bank or any one
connected with it, directly or indirectly, on ac
count of any matter whatever concerning the
Bank. If my name was used by those who of
footed the, sale of the Bank, it was unwarranted,
unjustifiable and impertinent towards me, awl 1
presume equally so towards the other gentlemen
tattled. lam morrally certain that they are as
innocent of any complicity with Robison in pro
curing control of the Shamokin Bank as any
men in the Swa t Avow take the oppOrtleutty
of saying that there is no Bank now chartered in
this Commonwealth, in the orgaiiiation of which
I have taken any part, except the Bank of Craw
ford County. It is the only Bank I ever urged
in the Legislature or was interested in the pas•
sage of, and this at the instance of my con.
atitnents, for whose benefit it was passed and for
whose benefit it will continue to exist With
my connection with it the public is no further
interested than that it was legally organized, has
been carefully mauaged, and bail promptly met
all its duties and liabilities. D. A. FONEY.
A terrible disaster occurred last night at Sl
o'clock, on the Allegheny Valley Railroad, near
Hutton's Station, 12 miles above Pittsburgh.
The Kittaning train coming down, stopped st
Tarentum and hitched to a ear containing a
large party returning from Camp meeting .
When the train reached the above mentioned
point the Taman= ear was thrown from the
track by the breaking of the eross-bar coMieat
inCLibrakes, and the ear rolled down a steep
eat, turning over twice.
At the first revolution, the roof was tutu off
and the passengers scattered over the ground,
=tangling the bodies of some.of them horribly:
Mary Ann, daughter of J. T. Kincaid,df this
city, was instantly killed A large namber
were more or less injured.
John Rookley's skull was broken, And J. Me.
Creary's arms were broken.
Among the slightly injured are: Mr and
Mrs. Kincaid, Mrs. R. Donaldson, Mr sod Mrs

1)e Dolphin, Lieut hlaffit, Command
reftieb b'eAt ending oh the uertheru
\ Out of Cuba, called at Saugna la Grande oft
the 2.oth, and left again on the 21st. Vorly in
tie morning of the same day she descried a
suspicious sail ahead, steering fhe same course.
The unknown vessel outsailed the Dolphin
while going free i Ind toward evening be hauled
his wind and_sittitymi. by etber,inatueuvreing his
wish to escape from the.e*cild attentions of the
*easel in chase of him, though as yet he bad
Igtoeu - no colors. Immediately on observing this
movement, the Dolphin tacked sod stood on in
lobese of the escaping vessel, which now packed
on all bail, The Dolphin then hoisted English
colors, and fired a blank estridge ; but no smut
Lion whatever was paid to it bb the escaping ves
sel. It was now about the middle of the after_
1110012, and it wed apparent that she would escape
under the cover of the approaching darkness,
unless brought to at once.
At 41 P. Id t another gun was fired, which
being unnotieed, half an hour afterwards a
shot was thrown across her bows, when the sus
pected vessel hoisted the American enbign at her
peak. She still refused to hease•to, however,
but made every effort to avoid being overbaulded
Capt. MA( then gave the order to fire a shot st
her bull, which struck the fore rigging and pas•
sod over the brig. This had the desired effect ;
the vessel hove..to, and hauled down her colors.
Lieut. J. Bradford, with s crew of marines,
then went on board and found the brig to be
from Congo River, with three hundred and
twenty slaves en be;ull. The crew immediately
were placed below and moaned, and the vessel
was taken in charge by First Lieutenant Brad
ford, and Second Lieutenant Chas. C Carpenter
and sixteen men On the same day they pro.
ceeded on toward:, Charleston, under orders of
the commander of the Dolphin, which has urri•
red here The captain of the slaver was taken
on board the Dolphin, which will sail from here
to-morrow for Boston _The name of the brig
was formerly Putnam, but had been changed to
Echo, which was painted out. The captain is
an Eastern man, and refused to make any statet
manta. The capture of the vessel by the
phin reflects great credit upon the commander
and other officers You will be enabled to learn
full particulars upon the arrival of the vessel at
Charleston. t T
New Rail Road Proposed.
F rum lb. New Yort F. eettioe
Much has been recently said about the projec
ted broad gnage railroad tram Olean, a point on
the New, York and Erie Railroad, to Dayton,
Ohici, a distance of near four hundred mile.' A
part of the proposed plan is to lay a third rail 1.0
the Cincinnati, ilatuiltou and Dayton Railroad,
from Dayton to Cincinnati connecting there with
the Ohio and Mis.issippi Kalinin.l, and thus al.
fording a csantionous broad guage from this city
to Si. LOW*. It was announced eight months
ago that the road would TM• completed in fair
months from that date, eat six IllifPllth, s.uce a cs
stated that the itoo bad been purchased, and aas
being shipped from England Thus fsr
road has not been finished, ts..r 1i..,
shipped ; but, strange a- it rua) app• .r, it.
ject has not been abandoned There fig
influence at work in favor ti,. rut, gal.., I
construction, it is urged, would pr,.ve of iww.
advantage to the New York and Erie r-A,l
This company could out aid it directly, ..f rout.. ,
but European capitalists who bate large iuv. st
meats in the Erie road, would u.iturally desire
its success. This influence has, doubtless, se.
cured for the project the attention of Euelisli
capitalists, which, as a proposition disconnected
from the Erie enterprise, it would net have re
ceived. The road, if built, would add largely to
the traffic or tbe now York aria %via like I but
as an investment, it would necesearily prove na
The eineinnati'Ga.eite, August :17th, thus al ,
Irides to the enterprise :.
"No intelligent man, untler.tandiug the pres
ent working of the railroad system, and the ex
cess of railway facilities between Cincinnati and
the eastern seabord, would risk his reputation by
attempting to estimate a profit on the business of
any new east and west line that could be eon-.
atructed through the State of Ohio. Since the
opening of the roads now in operation, the busi
ness has not been sufficient to furnish full and
profitable employment to the several lines ; and
of all the roads in the State of Ohio at this time,
the line from this city to Cleveland, via Xenia
and Columbus, composing three companies, is the
only one that is earning a dividend; and this
result is attributable more to past management
than to present traffic.
"tinder this state of affiirs what is to be ex ,
peoted from the business of the new line The
projected road might, and doubtless would, se
ewe traffic enough to render the only paying
roads in the State unprofitable, but its own busi
ness would not lit , remunerative to stockhold.
A Lerma hark—Four months or more have
elapsed since the passage of the bill for the sale
of the Semaining State canals to the Sunbury &
Erie railroad company ; the works long since
passed to the possession of the purchaser, and in
turn the various lines hate been resold to a
number of other companies, gone into their pos
session, and nearly forgotten by everybody ex.
cept the owners Hut a few days ago the Canal
