    " A Pair of "Passes."
Probably no two PASSES are so fa-
Mous in our history as those given by
.1 rnold to Sndre and Polk to Santa .11nna.
To show how much the affinity the last
has to the first, we copy both :
Arnold's Pass to Andre.
Head Quarters, Robinson's House,
Sept. 22d, 1780.
Permit Air. John vlnderson to pass the
Guards to the White Plains, or below, if
he Chooses, He being on Public Business
by my Direction.
B. ./IRNOLD, Al. Gen'l.
" .1 Whig lie !" exclaimed the Tories
of the Revolution. Luckily, however,
the original pass of which the above is
published as a copy, was preserved, and
is still in existence.
Polk's Pass to Santa Anna.
The Commander of our .N'aval forces
in the Gulf is hereby directed not to ob
struct the passage of Santa anna and
Suite to Mexico, should he desire to return
J.4.31ES K. POLK, President,
,flay 15, 1846.
"11 Whig lie !" thundered some of
the parasites of the Executive. It hap,
pens that President Polk, in his Mes
sage of 7th Dec. last, admits that l►e
gave permission for Santa Anna to re
turn. Polk's friends have been challenged
in vain to prove that the above is not a
true copy of the original Pass !
"To Pass the Guards to the White
Plains, or below, if he Chooses," writes
.Arnold—" Obstruct not the Passage
of Santa Anna to Mexico, should he at
tempt to return," says Polk.
" He being on Public Business, by my
Direction," quoth .arnold—"lt re
mains to be seen whether his return may
not yet prove favorable to a PACIFIC
adjustment of existing difficulties," very
demurely cogitates .Polk.
The rivers of American blood shed by
the treasonable plots of which these
PASSES are but the open sesame ! with the
other parallels between them, our read
ers can carry out at their leisure.—Wy
oming Record.
Life °Vers.
c , Federalism goes for life officers."•
Carlisle Democrat.
The truth of this is illustrated, sags
the Pa. Telegraph, by the nomination of
Gov. Skunk, who has been in office up
wards of thirty years, or, almost ever
since he was old enough to fill one. In
his support therefore the Locofocos are
only acting out their principles—they
go for "life officers," for pampering the
old office-holder who has grown grey in
sucking from the public Treasury; while
the Whigs go for a new man, one term
and a distribution of offices. How re
publican, how democratic are the prin
ciples of the Whigs, compared with the
acts of their opponents, who go for "po
litical aristocracy."
During the recent bread riots in France,
some very inflammatory hand-bills were
circulated. The agitators charged the
scarcity upon the Government, and en
deavored to turn the matter to political
account. "A day of vengeance is come!"
said one of the placards, " and the peo
ple should move. First seize the grain,
then burn the houses of the rich, mur
dcrlng those therein, if agreeable—it is
better to die from murder than to die
from hunger. Courage ! Forward !
Huzza for pillage, for blood, fir death!"
HOT SIIOT.—The Locofoco editors in
Reading, some of them, insist that Gen.
Taylor is a Locofoco ; and they were to
have a meeting of " Taylor Democrats"
on the evening of the 3d inst. The Jour
nal throws the following missile into
their camp :
The following is an extract of a letter
received a few days ago, by Mr. John
Hepler, of this city, from his son, Wil
liam P. Hepler, who is now, and has
been serving under Gen. Taylor since
the commencement of the war. Mr.
Hepler, it seems, wrote to his son some
months since, desiring to know positive
ly what were the politics of Gen. Tay
His son says :
You also request to know whether
Gen. Taylor is a Whig or Democrat, be
cause both parties claim him. HE IS
suppose you would like to know what I
am. lam a loco to the back bone, but
if old Zack runs I will have to give him
a hard push, no matter who runs against
him, for I think he is more fit for the
White House than the one who now oc
cupies it.

Arrival of the Ilibernia.
Seventeen Days Later From Europe,
Decline in Flour—Potatoe Crop promis
ing—Excellent promise of the Harvest.
The Steamship Hibernia, arrived at,
Boston on the 2d inse bringing Liver.
pool dates to the 20th July. A Liver.
pool date of the 20th states that during
the last ten days the weather has been '
almost uninterruptedly fine, and each
day strengthens the expectations enter
tained of an abundant harvest of grain
throughout the British islands and all
Europe. The heavy decline in corn was
checked. Since the 12th, the market
has again given way, the prospects of
still receiving large supplies from the
United States, and by way of the Medi
terranean, added to the fine weather
which prevails in all quarters, depressed
the market, which presents every as
pect of a downward movement. The
potatoe crop is represented to be free
from danger, and this fact contributed
not a little to affect prices. During the
last week, however, the market has been
much firmer, the prices of the 12th be
came current, and were maintained
throughout the week, and yesterday in
Mark Lane a further advance of ls. took '
place. The trade in Indian corn was,
however, quite paralized, and flour in
barrels was quite neglected.
The cotton market has been steady
since the 10th and sales pretty large.
There had been an advance of 1-Bd. in
prices since the 10th, and the market
closed steadily at quotations.
In cured provisions a limited business
had been done. Transactions in bacon
are limited. Prices have receded 2to 4.d.
Pork is in limited demand. American
neglected, and prices, if any thing low
The reports from the manufacturing
districts are of a satisfactory and en
couraging character.

Extraordinary Occurrence.
On Tuesday, the 27th ult., the family
of Mr. George Christman, of Chesnut
hill township, Monroe county, Pa., du
ring the thunder storm, were severely
injured by a stroke of lightning, under
very peculiar and almost unprecedented
circumstances. Mr. Christman, his wife
and a young woman residing with them
were engaged in domestic avocations—
Mr. Christman writing upon a table be
fore him, and the two ladies sitting upon
chairs in the room, when the subtle fluid
descended the chimney, lit upon the ta
ble before Mr. Christman, severed one
of its leaves, and split the chair upon
which he was sitting without injuring
him, except stupifying him with wonder
—glanced over the body of Mrs. Christ
man, severely scorching her, without,
however, destroying her clothing, upon
wnich she exclaimed, "I'm burning up!"
—and attacked the young lady in the
same manner, but did not injure her so
much as Mrs. Christman. They are all
out of danger, but justly congratulated
themselves upon having escaped death
by providential interposition. Mrs.
Christman, who had been previously
long suffering from rheumatism, has been
entirely cured of that disease by the se
vere operation she has undergone. The
house was not injured.
Poisoning Americans in Mexico,
We mentioned some time since the
rumor, not our own, that the Mexicans
at Jalapa and elsewhere in Mexico were
poisoning the milk and other products,
and then selling them to the Americans.
That this infamous course was attempt
to kill our soldiers, there is the best
evidence. We have taken some pains
to gain the history of the matter, and
we find it to be as follows :—[Union.
In Mexico there grows a small bean
called Pinonlillo, (pronounced penon
leyo,) which, when infused in milk and
drunk, causes a chronic disease that
soon carries off its victims, they the
while unconscious of the real cause.—
This bean, it is said, was used in Ha
vana, many years ago, with considerable
success in destroying , . the English. The
Mexicans use an herb called the huaco,
(pronounced wha-co,) to relieve them of
the poisonous effects of the pinonlillo
and the bite of poisonous reptiles, by
chewing the weed and swallowing the
extract. The extract is also used to put
in the place of a bite of a poisonous rep
tile, and always with success. A Mex
ican never travels, if it can be avoided,
without a small package of the huaco
weed, to be provided for against acci
dents.—N. 0. National.
Aid and Comfort.
We perceive by the late New Orleans
papers, that liberal extracts continue to
be copied into tie Mexican papers from
the Federal prints in this country. This
fact is distinctly stated, and may be
useful as a matter of future reference.—
Carlile Volunteer.
[).Certainly, but why complain that
Mexican papers copy extracts " from the
Federal prints in this country 1" The
great leader of the Federal party in this
country, Mr. Pour, passed the great
leader of the Federal party in Mexico,
DON SANTA ANNA, into that Republic,
and placed him at the head of the Mex
ican Army, to fight against such Amer
ican Whigs as Taylor, Scott, Clay,
Ringgold, and others—why, then, should
not the sayings of such Federal papers
as the Carlisle Volunteer be "copied into
the Mexican papers" of Mexico 1
The Letheen
The Berks and Schuylkill Journal
gives the following account of the am
putation performed upon the person of
Mr. HENRY PROT; of Reading, whose
leg was dreadfully crushed and man
gled on the railroad at Baumstown, on
Saturday evening. The operation was
performed on Sunday morning, by Drs.
flsisrEß and WHITMAN, the patient hav
ing first been put under the influence of
the Letheon.
" During the operation he was entire.
ly insensible to pain, and laughed and
joked while the knife and saw were se
parating the quivering flesh and cutting
through the bones, muscles and arteries!
The leg was amputated above the knee
joint, and we are told that the unfortu
nate man never once winced under the
dreadful operation or experienced the
slightest 'pain or disagreeable sensation.
We are further assured that after the
limb was bound up, and the effects of
the ether had passed oft; the pain was
by no means severe. The system of the
patient was not prostrated by the opera
tion, and the wound is much more like
ly to be speedily healed, than in cases
where the sufferer is doomed to feel the
exquisite torture of the operation."
HEAVY RAlN.—Adams county (Miss.)
was on Sunday last visited by one of the
heaviest rains ever known since 1804.
So rapidly did it fall, that the whole
country was soon under water. Bridges
and fences were washed away, cattle
were drowned, the cotton and corn torn
up. The damage is said to be immense.
Col. Bingainan lost one of his best
horses. Much valuable stock was lost.
Our informant states that the rain coo
tinned for three successive days, but
that the damage from the flood occurred
principally on Sunday.---facemer.
is said that the administration decided
on Saturday to call out ten additional
regiments, under the Act of 13th May,
1816. It has been the impression that
the government had nearly exhausted
the authority given to it by that Act.
But a different construction has been

would seem, do not look for a speedy

Boston Chronotype, to Mr. Polk's send

SABBATH I -A distinguished clergyman
of Pittsburg, proposes this question to
the consideration of the reli g ious public.
It was to have been discussed on Tues
day evening, at the First Presbyterian
church of that city. s s
When that question is decided, we sup

their wives."

Valuable Ore-Bank tlk Water-power
For Sale.
THE subscriber wishes to dispose of about 300
acres of very rich Ore and Coal Lands situate
on the waters of Sandy Creek, in Perry township,
Jefferson county, Penn'a.
The property is situate on three branches of
Sandy Creek, which unite upon the premises,
atlhrding abundant power for save. al Furnaces,
Forges, &c., all within a b out one
fourth of a utile of the Ore bank. The Ore is of
the same kind, but of a richer quality, that is used
at the Great Western works in Armstrong county.
1 here are also on the premise, abundance of Rita
nlinotts Cool, Limestone, and Sandstone. Tbe
Creek is now navigable, for Arks, &c., in time of
high water, from within coven miles of the prop
erty, and could, with little expense, be mode so
from the premises. There is a Saw-Mill in opera
tion on the premises. The land is all well timber
ed, and well timbered lands may be purchased in
the immediate neighborhood at from one to two
dollars per acre.
This property undoubtedly affords facilities for
the manufacture of hod, possegsed by few situations
in Pennsylvania, and to an enterprising capitalist
acquainted with the business is a location much to
be desired.
As this advertisement is merely intended to draw
the attention of those acquainted with the iron bu
siness to the lands, the subscriber deems it unneces
sary to dwell longer on the advantages possessed
by this property, as those wishing to purchase will

was recommended to take Hance's Sar
saparilla or Blood pills, and after taking
one box, the pain was entirely removed
from my breast and arm. I found them
extremely gentle in their operation, and
would recommend them to every person
in want of a mild purgative. PATRICK

lady who was cured of Consumption :
Ho ! ye who pant with failing breath,
And pine away and die;
Hance shall "put away" your death,
And light anew your eye.
How sweet it melts upon the tongue,
How grateful to the breast !
A glorious theme for poet's song,
Soothing his cough to rest.
Hance ! favored of the God's, art thou,
A blessing to thy race,
Let laurels flourish on thy brow,
And wealth those laurels grace.
When heroes are forgotten; kings
Defunct ; or, ceased to rain ;
Glory, for thee, shall flap her wings,
Thou conquerer of pain.
