0:)-A new paper, entiled " The Commonwealth,'
has been darted at Harrisburg. by Wm. Lewis.—
It supports Van Buren for the Presidency and de
fends Governor Porter's conduct out and out. It
walks into the " Democratic Union" rough shod
and deals harshly with the Buchanan press gener
ally. This is, no doubt, done'in pursuance of some
new " bargain ;" for David R. Porter, while on his
way to Saratoga, a few weeks ago, stopped a night
with Mr. Van Buren at Kinderhook, when and
where the terms were probably agreedupon.

The New Bedford Bulletin states that the sloop
Fairhaven, near the Hen and Chickens, to the east
df M utha's Vineyard, fell in with a schooner with
all sail set. and discover.' there was no one on
board. They immediately boarded her, round that
she had one anchor down with a short scope, three
feet of water in her hold, and scuttled forward just
above the copper. The forecastle was torn to
pieces, the bunks torn down, a hole cut in the cabin
floor, with an axe lying beside it. The cabin was
in great disorder—all valuable articles were taken
away except the quadrant and compass, which were
found in the mate's locker; the captain's trunk was
found cut open, and was completely pillaged. On
examinaon, the vessel proved to be the schooner
Lavinia, of Alexandria, Dearborn master. The
crew list found in the Captain's trunk was as fol
Charles H. Dearborn, master; Walter A. Nicoll,
mate; John Johnson, cook; David Babe, Wm.
Webster and Geo. Matthews, seamen.

Johnson has no residence opposite his name; Babe
fromAppe May, N. J., and Webster and Mat-
Ws frOm Baltimore. The Captain and Mate,

made their marks in signing the articles, which fact
may.prove to he of some importance.

In n small hook (sued in the cabin the following
entry is made:
Friday night, 14th July, 1823.—About 10
o'clock, it was the mute's watch on deck along with
me, when the Captain came on deck and told me to
keep the vessel to the wind, and !done so , then the
mate was aft on the scat close to the taffrail asleep,
and the Captain went up and shook him, and said
you are a damned fellow to he an officer of a vessel,
and struck at him, and they at one another; the
mate got the Captain down nn his hack on the tat=
frail, and mein sheet block under them—it gave a
jerk and pitched them overboard. 8o I put my
helm down, but it was of no use; for by the nine
the vessel was round, they were not to be seen.--
There was nn one on deck hut myself. and could do
no good for them. I ran forward and called the
ern, tsar time they got the sense! 'was
going along afore the wind, and we could not hear
or see them.

what course to stand for the nearest port. Told us
a due West for Bermuda, and a NNW for New

In the back part of the log was found the follow

On the night of rriday the 19th,about 11 o'clock,
I and the tnate were on watch together, when the
Capt. came on deck, and struck the mate for being
asleep on watch, and the mate struck hint back,
when they tossed each other about, the mate lying
on his back and rolling. (No signature.)
In the same small book referred to above was
found, on another leaf, the following memorandum :

The boat of the vessel, which, from the tackle
used in hoisting, was evidently a long-boat, was
gone. The gangway rail was taken away to make
room for the boat, in hoisting her over the side.
The chests of the seamen were gone from the
forecastle. The captain's trunk was stove open, as
we mentioned above. and completely ransacked of
every thing of the slightest value. His letters were
We have no time to speculate upon this myste
rious affitir, but it is the prevailing opinion that a
piracy has been committed, and the captain and
mate thrown overboard. There is foul play some
where, and time will develope the mystery.

the schooner in tow. She is now in possession of
Mr. Gordon, the U. S. Marshall.
After the above was in type we received the U.
States Gazette of the sth inst., containing the fol.
Arrest of the Pirates.
The particulars of the arrest in Now York, of
two of the pirates of the schooner Sarah Lavinia,
were given in our postscript yesterday morning.—
The men arrested are two of the crew of the Sarah
Lavinia, and part of the four who were reported to
have landed on Sunday morning last, at Secunnett
Point, R. I. From Secunnett they proceeded to
Newport, and took lodgings at the tavern of a Mr. I
Knight, who is also a police officer, stating to him
that they had left New Bedford for New York, and
desired to rest a few days at his house. One of '
them, named Mathews, appeared much down east,
saying that his heart was broken, and that ho could II
tell a good deal and would shortly. The other, a
tall athletic man, named Babe created suspicion by
displaying an elegant gold watch, and telling many
contradictory stories about it. The melancholy
looks and mysterious words of Mathews, and the
contradictory stories of Babe, aroused suspicion in
the mind of Mr. Knight so strongly that on Sunday
last, he was on his way to the Sheriff to procure a
warrant, when recollecting the day, and the express
ed determination of the men to remain wih him
some days longer, he concluded to defer it. The
next morning they left for New York, and the news
of the piracy reaching Mr. K. soon after, he deter
mined to follow them, which we did, and was suc
cessful in causing their arrest. Mathews, it is sup
posed, wilt be admitted as state's evidence, and
shortly after his arrest male a confession, which is
thus briefly told I y the New York Courier and En
quirer of yesterday.
Mathews says that the Captain and Mate got
fighting, and went overboard accidentally by the
swinging of the main beam ; that Babe then threat
ened to knock his (Mathews') brains out if he did
not obey his orders. The cook who was a yellow
man wed! known in this city, named John Johnson,
was then called and threatened with death unless he
lent a hand to navigate the schooner. Six slays
after this, when close in with the land, Babe murder
ed the cook by knocking rot I.is brains with a
mallet, and then Babe and Webster, the man still at
large, divided the Captain's effects between them.
As there was blood in the captain's berth and
about the captain's clothe , which Babe had taken
with hint, this statement is believed to he partially
Active measures have been adopted to hasten the
arrest of the other two of the crew.
Pnseyism—Church of England.
At a late ordination of a Mr. Carey i; a minister,
by Bishop Onderdonk, who, in defiance of objec
tions procectled.with the ordination, and the objec
tors left the elturch while the service was going on.
The amount of the objections were, that Mr. Carey
held doctrines contrary to those of the Episcopal
church—or such as Dr. Pussy, a professor of Ox
ford College, assenting to the doctrines of the Cath
olic church, and urging a union with them. This
circumstance is creating, and well it may, a great
excitement in that church; and indeed all rotestants fear that church in this country, as well as in
England, is sadly effected with this error, and that
its tendency is fast verging to such a union. It is
even said that Bishop Doane of New Jersey, has
issued a manifesto, declaring his " unwavering con
fidence in Dr. Pusey's faithfulness to the standard
of his church, and Iris integrity as a Catholic church
man." The New York Commercial Advertiser
well remarks on this subject—. It is vain to deny
the truth, and worse than folly to attempt to conceal
it, that the great system of delusion which over
spread the world with a thicker than Egyptain
ilatisness for many centuries, and from which the
church came forth at last only by conflict and blood,
is again threatening the dearest faith of our fathers,
the most precious liberties of our land. The very
crisis of danger is upon us, and we appeal to the
goad men of every Protestant denomination in our
land, with all the earnestness of our love for the
truth, that they look to it, by their reverence for the
principles which their fathers cherished, and for
which they died ; that they lay tin per jury upon
their souls by transmitting a tainted creed and per
verted gospel to the coming generation." These
Ire tratha that ought to to tome in mind.
Attempted Assassination of Mr.
Wicklife—Post Master General.
The Southern mail of yesterday brought us the
accounts of a most painful occurrence, which took
place on Tuesday (Ist August) on board the steam
boat Georgia. Mr. Wickliffe, his daughters and a
young man named J. M'Lean Gardner, sun of Col.
Gardner, formerly Auditor of the Post Mice De
partment, and several others, came on board at Old
Point Comfort. Previous to his departure, the Bal
timore American Faye :—the conduct of Mr. Gard
ner was remarked by the visitors of a very singular
character, and the belief was generally entertained
that he was laboring under mental derangement—a
belief which was strongly concurred in by Mr.
Wickliflb himself, with whom he had several times
been in conversation. About half past one o'clock
on Tuesday, when the passengers were summoned
to dinner, Mr. Wickliffe, who was standing on deck,
offered his arm to the ladies whowerc with him, and
while in the act of so doing, Gardner, without any
previous intimation, suddenly sprung at Mr. Wick
liffe, and aimed a powerful blow with a clasp knife
at his breast. The blade of the knife struck the
right breast bone with much force, and traversed
the bone without, it is believed, injuring the lungs,
or making a deep incision. Lieut. Bradford, of the
U. S. Navy, standing close by, instantly seized
Gardner in the act of making a second blow at Mr.
Wickliffe, and prevented his design. The knife
was immediately taken possession of by Lieut. B.
and Gardner placed in confinement. Remedies
were immediately applied to Mr. Wickliffe's wound,
and on his arrival in Baltimore he was attended by
Professor Smith, who entertains the opinion that
the wound is not dangerous. Immediately on the
arrival of the boat, Gardner was committed to jail.
The Clipper says Mr. Wickliffe requested as a par
ticular favor that he should not be confined with
felons, which was granted. At 11 o'clock, Mr. W.
seemed to be easy; suffering slight pain when he
moved. His physicians pronounced that the sore
ness extending to the side was through sympathy,
or the settling of blood in that region. His daugh
ters left Baltimore yesterday morning at two o'clock
in the cars for Washington, in order that they
might communicate the first intelligence to their
family and friends.
Lancaster County Ineoirlug.
The meeting of the friends of "Harry of the
West," at Lancaster, on the 29th ult., must have
been a great gat cring together of the yeomanry of
that county, though the Locofoco and Scott papers
give different reports as to the number of persons in
attendance. The number of persons in procession,
as given by some papers is as high as 3,000 while
that of others is as low as 400.
To following account we copy from the York
Republican, the editor of which paper was at Lan
caster, and addressed the assemblyi".
"The friends of HENRY CLAY assembled in
County Meeting at Lancaster on Saturday last, and
never has the " Old Guard" rallied in such num
and with equal enthusiasm. At an early hour
in the morning the popular tide began to flow into
the city ; several processions 011 horseback and in
carriages, some of which bore banners and were ate- '
companied with music, appeared from dilli rent parts
I of the county, numbering hundreds of persons in
each, and no section of that magnificent and pow
erful division of Pennsylvania was without large and
respectable Delegations. Lampeter, Rapho, Earl—
every district which has hitherto been a terror to
Locofoeoiam, poured fourth its bands of intelligent
and noble hearted yeomanry, burning with zeal and
determination to do "..1 menet to Hearin CLA Y."
The old and well tried soldiers of the "Guard" were
there—those who had fought its fiercest battles—
, shared its proudest triumphs, and been elected by its
confidence to the highest public stations in its gift.
Although it is always difficult to estimate the num
ber present at such popular assemblages, we think
we do not exaggerate it in the least when we say
that on Saturday THREE THOUSAND friends
of Jimmy CLAY met together in the city of Lan
caster ; and these were all from the body of a single
county—her mechanics, laborers, manufacturers and
farmers leaving their homes with their harvest yet
ungathered in the fields, under the blazing beams of
a midsummer sun, and amid almost suffocating
clouds of driving dust. At 11 o'clock in the morn
ing, the Court tissue bell rang; and in less than
five minutes the spacious building was crowded to
its utmost capacity, not one half of the multitude
being able to effect an entrance within the doors.—
The meeting was then organized by appointing the
Hon. WILLIAM HURT yit, President—a number of
Vice Presidents equal to the number of townsh"ps
in the county, all distinguished members of the par
ty, and several Secretaries. It being impossible to
find any covered place in the city capable of com
fortably accommodating the people, an adjourn
ment took place for dinner, and in the afternoon, the
meeting re-assembled in a large orchard in the eas
tern part of the city, which was densely tilled by
the audience. An address and resolutions were
then reported by a Committee of which Jolts
STROHM, Esq., was Chairman, and unanimously
adopted; they are of course Clay to the beck-bone.—
Addresses were delivered by JAMES S. WALLACE
and MORTON MCMICH Esqr's., of Philadelphia,
'F. E. COCHRAN, of York, and A. linen Sum.,
Esq., of Lancaster. The proceedings throughout
were characterized by the utmost harmony and en
thusiasm, and the friends of HENRY CLAY may rest
assured that in the great campaign of 1844, the
old Guard will proudly maintain the position which
she achieved in 1840, and he foremost in the front
rank of those who shall fight under the broad ban
ner of " Harry of the West."

The VW Wigs in 1840 promised that no coon no it
should be known that General Harrison was elected,
confidence would be restored, the banks re-com

and property increased in value.
AS IT WAS PERFORMED.
General Harrison was elected. Confidence be

the power, persisted in suspension, and both labor
and property decreased in value, in every portion of

It is now ascertained with sutTicient certainty that

AS IT WILL BE.
The reins of Government will be given to the
Democrats; a President and Vice President be cho

flop's , to the Above,
1, At IT WAS PIIO3IISED." True these promises
were made, and have been in part performed : that
they have not been fully so is owing to the death of
the patriot Harrison in one short month after he
took the helm of government, and the unparalleled
perthlity of him who thereupon became the acting
Chief Magistrate. That these events were not fore
seen and provided against, was our misfortune, not
"As rx WAR PERFORM.. " "Confidence be
tween man and man has" NOT " been diminished,"
but in a great degree restored. As to the Banks,
we have no responsibility to bear about them: the
measure we proposed, to restore a sound currency
was defeated by the traitor who had been seduced
into treason by the Tories themselves. Owing how
ever, the operation of the Whig Tariff, the Banks
are resuming specie payments, and " both labor and
property," instead of continuing to " decrease in
value in every portion of the Union," arc under the
died of that Tariff, again rising in value and in
creasing in demand. •
°As IT is. " True, "it is now ascertained that
the" Tories "will have a majority in the next"
Reuse of Representatives, but not in the Senate, so
that they will be powerless for mischief. Does the
editor of the Indiana Patriot take the people of the
United States to be such egregious dolts as to believe
his assertion that the mere fact that the Tories will
have a majority in one branch of the next Congress
has been the means of reviving business, and putting
thernanufacturers of the country again in operation,
and ala, of bringing large amounts of gold and sil
ver into the country? Who, we would ask him,
are the manufacturers and capitalists of the country ?
Nineteen out of twenty of them arc Whigs; are
thsy, then, so elated at the prospect of the Whigs
betg thrown out of power in ono branch of Con
gress, as to put their capital and factories in opera
tion in anticipation of the great benefits to be dol
-1 ved to the country from such a change ! Why was
this confidence wanting when the Tories had pos
session of every branch of the govetninent, and
could adopt and carry out their own measures, and
did so? Why was it that confidence was then
destroyed, the public credit lost, business prostrate,
our factories silent, labor unemployed, property
cry where sacrificed, and universal bankruptcy
staring us in the face? Why such a change but

"Confidence is being restored, gold and silver are
coming into the country from every quarter of the
world by millions upon millions, and the price of
labor nod produce improving slowly but with cer

pliment to the Whigs than he has by this admission.
Let the Tories obtain majorities LI both branches of
Congress again, repeal the Tariff and establish
Fuss TRA., as they are bound to do according to
their doctrines, and what then shall we see?—
" Millions upon millions coining into this country
from every quarter of the world ?" No: but "mil
-1 lions upon millions" going out to pay for imported
goods. Shall we behold " the price of labor and
produce improving slowly but with certainty?"—
No: we shall see again, just what we have seen
while they were in power, labor and produce redu
ard to the lowest, Buchanan and Tappan standard.

people arc wise, the Protective system and its friends
will be sustained. If they are otherwise, it will be
otherwise. "Nous verrons."—forum.
HOW TO OLT a NswarArcri.—An exchange
paper holds the following wholesome advice us to
the mode of obtaining a newspaper. The sugges
tion is undoubtedly a good one and is well worth
trying. But to the advice: Some of our friends
who wish well to the Whig cause, think they cannot
afford the expense of a paper. They must curtail
their expenses they say. For shame sake let them
curtail any other than this. Let a little coarser
coat be worn. Buy one at four dollars a yard in
stead of five, and you can pay for your paper.—
Omit chewing or smoking tobacco, and you will
retrench more titan will pay for three papers, and
feel better too. If you live in the country set some
poor runt of a pig aside, and feed him what would
else be wanted, and let him pay your subscription,
you will never feel it. Or let a alteep run around
the barn yard picking for himself, and we will take
his fleece and give a paper for it every year.
