Rochester, N. Y., on the 3d inst., which destroyed
sixteen houses on St. Paul's and Church streets,
including dry Goods stores and Groceries, Auction
stores, Livery stables, Mechanics shops, &c.
MILITIA FlNr.e.-It may not be generally known
that the militia fines are now but fifty cents a day,
or one dollar for two day's absence. The Legisla
ture at its last session, in the third section of the
Appropriation Bill, so altered and reformed the law.
The next reformation needed, says the Harrisburg
Union, is to abolish the fifty cents tine also, which
is a tax upon poor men, and goes only to fill the
pockets of a few otficers, under the pretext of keep
ing up a system of defence—a system (heaven
save the mark!) which costs the State annually,
besides the fines, several thousand dollars.

also brought two large rocks, perfectly spherical,one
of which weighed two hundred and eighty pounds,
which he procured in the bed of a small river at the '

Repeal Meetings, ace.
The British Mail Steamer Britannia arrived at
Boston late on the 4th inst., in 16 days and 3 hours
front Liverpool. We are indebted to an extra from
the Boston Atlas for the news brought by her,
which is of a startling and important character.
The Atlas says :—By this arrival we have our
full files of London and Liverpool papers to the 19th
of October—being fifteen days later than our for.
Tyler advices.
The business affairs in England still held their
improved state. Cotton advanced full id, and very
large sales bad been made, even at the advance.—
Our accounts say that the sales of Cotton had been
larger than at any time for the last fifteen years—
amounting to 91,580 bales in one week. Money
continued abundant, and was placed at low rates of
An important item in the news by this steamer,
is the arrest of the great leader of the Irish Repeal
agitation, Daniel O'Connell. He was arrested in
a private manner, on a charge of "conspiracy, for
the purpose of compelling her Majesty, by demon
strations of physical force, to change her measures,
and the laws of her realm; also with the utterance
of seditious and inflammatory language, calculated
to bring into contempt the government and consti
tution of the country, and produce dissatisfaction in
the army ; and further, with raising money to pro
cure a change in the laws and constitution of the
realm." O'Connell was subsequently bailed, and
addressed a weekly meeting of the Repeal Associa
tion of Dublin. He is said to have given intima
tions of abandoning the idea of Repeal, and advo
cating the formation of a more perfect Federal
Another important feature in the foreign news in
the adoption of a new Tariff, and new commercial
regulations in China, which had been promulgated
at Canton. This information wan received in Lon
don on the 9th of October. It came by the Orien
tal steamer from Alexandria to Marseilles. These
new regulations all relate to the trade between Great
Britain and China, and are the results of stipulations
of a Commercial Treaty entered into by Sir Henry
Pottinger, on the part of Great Britain, and Keying,
High Commissioner, on the part of the Emperor of
The provisions of this Treaty will be highly
beneficial to the English trade. Many burdensome
and vexatious duties aro entirely abolished, and
uniform duties have been adopted in their stead.
Wean Lives Lost—Destruction of
the Steamer Sarah Dames.
We are indebted to the New Orleans Picayune
for a slip containtng the following particulars of the
loss of the Sarah Barnes, as communicated by the
mate, Charles Cloud, who arrived at New Orleans
on the 23d October, in a schooner from Galveston,
with Mr. A. G. Abell, bearer of despatches, Mr. B.
P. Hartshorne, Mr. F. Pickard, and Mr. Matthews,
first engineer on the Sarah Barnes.
On the 24th mt., at noon, she crossed the Galves
ton bar for thla ;port, On tha next morning, the
sash, a considerable leak was discovered in her hold.
All the pumps were set to work: but they were able
to keep her free for a short time only. At half past
2, P. M., the water had ascended to the fires and the
engine. Further efforts to counteract the leak were
therefore unavailing, and to save their lives became
the concern of all on board. They then set about
making rafts of the cotton bales—four bales to a
raft—and lashed together some spars for other rafts,
She was now sinking rapidly. Orders were given
to cast off the boat's painter, and while doing this
she sunk.
There were on board altogether thirty souls—
of these eighteen went on the rafts, and twelve took
the boat. Of the former, but five were saved, af
ter drifting about three days and three nights.—
Two of them landed on Galveston Island, and the
other three on Baldvair Point. Of the latter, but
three perished—who were passengers, two males
and a female—and they were lost in the breakers,
in landing from the boat on the 26th. The follow
ing is the list of those on board, in which the names
of those who perished, and those whose lives have
been saved, are designated

rEit.—We learn from the Warsaw Signal, that the
" Nauvoo Mansion," kept by Joe Smith, was open
ed on the 3d ult., with great ostentation—speeches
made, resolutions offered, and toasts drank, all which
are reported in the Neighbor with great eclat.
Some of the resolutions are quite rare specimens,
and characteristic of their origin. Here follow two
of them :
Resolved, Gen. Joseph Smith, whether we view
him as a Prophet at the heed of the Church: a
General at the head of the Legion a Mayor at the
head of the City Council, or as a Landlord at the
head of his table, he has few equals and no superior.
Resolved, Nauvoo the great Emporium of the
West, the centre of all centres, a city of threeyearte

with industry, frugality, economy, virtue, and bro
therly love unsurpassed in any ago of the world,

Prom the Clinton County Whig.
Gen. 3ames Irvin.
As a genuine Whig, we have ever held it to be
our imperative duty to submit to the will of the ma
jority. This is one of the first principles of liberty,
recognized, adopted, and practiced as such by the
DemOcratic Whig party. When we hoisted the
name of Mr. M'Kennon, as our choice for Governor
in 1844, we had every reason to believe that such a
course would meet the decided approbation of the
Whigs of Clinton county—and ore well convinced
that it was approved of at that time. But since the
name of Gen. James Irvin of Centre county has
been mentioned in connexion with that office, so
great is his personal popularity here, and so great
the confidence the people repose in his capability
and strict integrity, that with one voice, almost, they
have declared him to be their first choice. We have
been spoken to and written to on the subject by our
Whig friends from every section of the county—
and indeed such is the enthusiastic unanmity mani
fested by the Whigs of this county in the General's
behalf, that we feel it to be our duty, as the organ of
the party, to support the man of their choice. We
therefore, in accordance with the views, feelings and
expressed wishes of our political friends nail to our
mast head the name of Gen. JAMES IRVIN, of
Centre county, as the first choice of the Whip of
Clinton county for Governor in 1844. And we
feel proud of the fact that we have in our very-midst
a man so admirably calculated to fill the Chair of
State with honor to himself and advantage to the
whole People of the Commonwealth. A man of',
splendid talents, he possesses a private character
pure and unsullied as the noon-day sun. He is one
of Pennsylvania's most talented and voluble sons- 1
one of whom she has just reason to be proud. He
is decidedly the most popular man in Northern
Pennsylvania—as his vote at the recent election
will show; and his popularity is confined to no par
section of the State. His course in Con
gress—his bold and determined stand in favor of the
Tariff won for him golden opinions throughout the
entire Commonwealth. A number of Whig Jour
nals have already reared aloft the Wltig Nth=
with the name of Gen. James Irvin as the Whig
candidate for Governor in 1844 inscribed upon its
ample folds. We have not the least doubt as to his
nomination by the State Convention—and if nomi
nated, nobly will the people of the Keystone State
rally to his support. HENRY CLAY for Presi
dent, THOMAS M. T. M'KENNON for Vico
President, and Gen. JAMES IRVIN for Govemor!

Murder near Sunbury.
We leant from Danville papers that a horrible act
of brutality and crime occurred on Monday night
of last week, on the road from Sunbury to Snyder
town, about three miles from Sunbury. A party of
young men, of Sunbury, went on a hunting excur
sion, and when they arrived at the above named
place, three persons named William Hunter, Robert
Hunter, and John Devaney, said to be Iriaftmen,
supposing them to be a party who had annoyed
them, rushed upon them, attacking and heating them
in a most horrible manner. with stones and a gun.
' John Vending, son of Peter Vending. of Shirookin
Isloss.7, ..-...0 dreadrutty beaten, that he died in
about en hour afterwards at his father's house,
where they had taken him, and another named '
Thos. Grant of Sunbury, received several severe
wounds. The rest of the party escaped without
injury. The three murderers have been arrested
and placed in the Northumberland county jail.
Now 'Work Mlection.
At the election in the State of New York, last
week, the Whigs achieved a glorious triumph. In
New York city, through the remisness of some of
the Whigs, the Locofocos carried a Senator for four
years, a County Clerk, Coroner and all the mem
bers of Assembly except one. When we receive
the full returns we will lay them before our readem.
The New York Tribune contains the following
"By noting our returns it will be seen that,
while the Whigs have almost every where else, in
the face of a most violent snow storm and other
discouragements, achieved decisive gains and often
glorious victories, our city has behaved disgracefully
—throwing away the triumph which was so com
pletely in our hands and losing almost the entire
Whig ticket by some 4 or 500 average majority.—
A Senator for four years is gone; a County Clerk
and Coroner fbr three years ; with all but one mem
ber of Assembly. We carry that one, with our
Sheriff; who has a decided majority.
We might, if we pleased, exult over the reduc
tion to 4 or 500 of the last Spring's Loco Foco
majority of 5,800. We might exult over the val
iant things the Whig have done, and the triumphs
which surely await them. But we shall do no
such thing. The majority of last Spring was, five
fifths of it, a notorious, palpable fraud, and amoun
ted to nothing. There has been for years only a
few hundreds against us here, when the city was
not on our side. Now the chances were all in our
favor. The Common Council elected by the swin
dling vote of last April has behaved so badly as to
excite universal disgust, and create a formidable,
inveterate schism in their own party. The Whigs,
as a body, had only to exercise a moderate degree
of energy and common sense, and they would have
swept the City, electing their whole ticket by thou
sands. A part of them have chosen to do very
differently, and the result is a defeat which wo can
not but consider disgraceful and injurious to the

Father Mathew and tho Bishop of
Mr. Walsh in one of his late letters to the Na- 1
tional Intelligencor says. It is long since I have
been more struck with an arnende honorabk for in
considerate censure than that of the Bishop of Nor
wich to Father Mathew, at the recent immense gath
eri rig in the city of Norwich. The prelate delivered a
very earnest address in behalf of the cause. Let
me quote the rest:
a , And now, reverend sir, and friend from another
Island, allow me to greet you—(addressing Father
Mathew, who rose amidst enthusiastic applause.)—
I meet you not here as a Roman Catholic Priest.
I differ from your creed, and I candidly and openly
avow in your presence, and before this great assem
bly, that I am hostile. But, reverened air, I meet
you here in a more noble and comprehensive char
acter—l meet you not here as a priest, but as a
Christian brother. [The right rearmed prelate
here crossed before the chairman, and extended his
band to Father Mathew, which was cordially gras
ped and shaken by the hitter, amid the most deaf.
ening cheers.] I meet you, I repeat it, as a Chris
tian brother, upon neutral ground, where all de
nominations of Christians may delight to visit and
unite together in the common and holy cause.—
(Hear, hear.) I have watched your conduct, air,
for many a year. Yes, sir, long since, as you may
remember, when I censured you in public—nay,
may I not add, abused you—l have watched your
proceedings. Those public reports, upon which I
founded those proceedings, I subsequently dicovered
to be founded in malignancy and falsehood. (Hear.)
The result was, sir, that I appealed to you as a
Christian and a man of honor to let me know really
how the case stood. You answered me most nobly
and honorably, and I believed you. I abuse you,
sir, no more. I felt, sir, that some apology was
due from me for the wrong I had dono you, and
here lam to receive you. (Hear.)"
A Hebrew Weddine.
Weddings are an interesting subject to our fair
friends, and we suppose that nearly every one knows
by heart what are the appropriate ceremonies to be
observed "when sun time comes !" The observan
ces however, at a Hebrew wedding, are probably
not quite so familiar, and therefore a brief account
of ene furnished below, will add a little to their in
formation on the various ways and means of initia
tion into the mysteries of Hymen.
The New York Tribune states that a Hebrew
wedding took place on Wednesday, Ist inst. in
Crosby street, where Mr. 'l'. J. Scions was united to
Miss Anna Judah. Rev. J. J. Lyons officiated as
Priest, assisted by a Philadelphia brother. The
ceremonies were most impressive to the large con
gregation of Gentiles whose curiosity had drawn
them to the sacred edifice, which is rarely opened
to any but the faithful on such occasions. A long
recitative in Hebrew was chanted by the Priest from
the altar, after which a canopy 120 years old, rest
ing on four uprights, was brought out, and the par
ties took their station under it and were united.—
A ring was given, a glass of wine drank by the
wedding pair, the glass broken, with some chanting
intermingled, and the ceremony declared complete.

tober the following issues of relief notes were burn

No foreign testimony in favor of these Pills
is adduced ; but certificates are presented
trom citizens of our own county.
From William M'Lain, Esq. of Dublin
township, Huntingdon county.
I was affected with Scarlet Fever. A
physician prescribed Dr. Shade's Pills. I
made use of three doses, which proved both
emetic and purgative, cleansing the stomach
and bowels equal to any caloinel I have ever
Wien. I have since used the Renovating
Pills in my family and cannot say too much
in their favor.
