the memorable Fourth of July, 1770, just evol

indeed be a "chosen people" that is permitted
to enjoy such Sabbaths.
The day of Jubilee Was one of happy feeling
in Huntingdone-•of joyous satisfaction express

exciting nature which mostly ends unpleasantly.
The Inhabitants all rested from their usual la

Social and Intellectual delights, together with a
spice of creature comforts.'
The very appropriate Union-Celebration of
Citizens, 'Sons' and Sunday Schools" did hon

holding the scenes of the day! There was the
long procession, " a bamser'd host" decked with
garlands and regalia, winding in graceful curves
through the village. Mark that procession,-
The Sons of Temperance were there, in beauty
and in strength with sober tread and manly
bearing, speaking home to the heart of the
spectator the language of Epochs from which
all must judge that a brighter era has dawned

Making rapid progress, throwing off and tram

thought, fading and action with base habits fit

yet moving nobly forward assuming new robes
of beauty and utility in texture and in mould
adapted to beings having claim to mind and mor

Fifty, Twenty, Ten years ago ! Then the lan
guage of the times was portrayed in such un
sightly, disgusting characters that the mere re

children. The veil which hides the Past is not
without its uses.
The Sunday Schools were there, in smiles and
sweetness With purity and brightness. Teachers
nod groups of little ones together linked like
rich flowers and buds on the cluster Rose bush.
How appropriate for them to Celebrate our Na
tional Sabbath ! For the Sunday School is the
best nursury of Church and State, where are
cradled and nurtured the very best members of
the Ministry and of Congtess. It is an institu
tion which can be made to effect more, in chan
ging the whole aspect of the vi•Orld for the bet-

promulgation of Christianity. Its influence like
odours unseen spreads through all the circles of
SOciety. The Sunday School of to-day embra

Union learn to observe and celebrate these Na
tional Sabbaths through revolving years to
The "Hvntingdon Bra s s Band" was there,l

hearts with sympathetic inthience induced by
the as linked sweetness long drawn Out," err

Change now the scene from Processiiin to the
Assembly—from the moving multitude, to the
gathered throng, seated in silence in the ample
Hall of Justice. There are the gilded banners
with their impressive mottoes, arranged around
that multitude of old and young now in calm—
the silvered locks and sunny curls giving a min

Currents of the tloiv of soul,' and then the va

the laughing groups and squads separate and re

a Sabbath eve pervades the village and fills ev

•• At the mention of the " Huntingdon Journal"
by one of the Cass orators the other night, the
audience gave three cheers ! And they were
about the only hearty cheers we beard during

[Signed by the Officers.]
By the arrival of the steamship Cambria we
have important intelligence from Europe. In
England the prospects for crops was good, and
prices of grain falling. Ireland is tranquil. The
Chartist demonstration in England has proved a
failure. In France the Bonaparte family has
caused. trouble, young Louis Napoleon having
been elected a member of the National Assem
bly. The rest of Europe remained pretty much
as at previous advices.
The chief subject df disenasiori in poli
tical circles; and the source of serious
alarm to the Republican parties, is the
diffusion of the spirit of imperialism
throughout the country, but more espe
cially in the army. Several Regiments
have shouted " Vive I'Emperour I" many
mote hake cried "Vive Louis Napoleon !"
When the name of Louis Napoleon
.was annduneed froth the steps of the
Hotel db Ville, the Military ittho cadre
on the phice raised their tapS dh the
tops of their bayonets in token of eXulta•
tation. On the 12th insti an immense
crowd bad been attracted outside of the
hall of the Assembly, under the idea of
seeing Prince Louis Napoleon pass top
take his seat. The crowd having raised
1 the cry of " Vive Louis &a/Afton 1 Vibe
l'Empereur !" the general to command
ordered the National Guhi ds tincl trodpS
to cledr the pldee. The croVid resisted
and some pistol Shots were fired, by
which motile of the oftaersof the cavalry
were wounded. The shots were heard in
the Assemblk, and shortly afterwards, at
jhalf past five, M. de Lamartine mounted
thd tribune bery pale and in a state of
agitation, and announced that a serious
circuhistanCe had jtist occurred in the
Place de la eoficordd, blood had been
spilt—a shot had been fired to the cry
of "Vive l'Empereur Napoleon l" The
gravity of the circumstance required
energetic measures. He then announced
a bill excluding Prince Louis Napoleon
from France, but allowing the rest of the
family to remain. The announcement
was received with acclamations. But the
next day the Assembly thought better
of it, and Louis Napoleon Bonaparte was
admitted a member.
Later intelligence says that two days
after he resigned hisJaettt, and Paris was
again tranquil.
"Old Whitey”--" Clear the Track I
The Nashville Whig, Uptin hearing the tionii
nation of Cass and Butler by the Balfinidre Con
vention, thus speaks :
- - ,
Fetch out old 6 , Whitey !"—Peteit him Out
We heard from him recently, and he was in tip
top condition— ,, standing straight upon his pas
terns, and bearing on the bit."
46 lie paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in
his strength : he goeth out to meet the armed
men. - . . . . .
4, He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted :
neither turneth he back from the sword.
The quiver rattleth against him, the glitter
ing spear and the shield.
He sayeth among the trumpets, Ha ! ha! and
he amelleth the battte afar off', the thunder of
the captains and the shouting."
Talk about beating this dear, gallant old war
horse! Nonsense! Why he has been trained
by HONESTY, has PATRIOTISM for his rider, and
is entered by the PEOPLE! Clear the Track.'—
Don't you see, he's coming!

Six DEMOCUATIC PAVERS, published in New
York, which had raised the Cass and Butler flag,
have since hauled it down and declared for Van
Buren and free soil. A similar movement is
going on in Massachusetts.
Arrival of Mr. Mitchell at Bermuda.
Nsw YORK, July 7 1848.
By an arrival at this port from Bermuda, we
learn that Mitchell the Irish partiot, arrived
there on the 20th ult., on board the British man
of-war Scourge. He was immediately trans
ferred to the convict ship Dromedary.
[From the Detroit Daily Advertiser.]
A singular phenomenon was brought
to light a week ago yesterday, in the
township of greenfield, about eight miles
from this city. The facts are very near
ly as folloWs
The Messrs (Wingers in boring to find
water td supply their steam saw mill,
sunk a four inch hole to the depth of 70
feet, when they struck a vein or cavity.
As they Withdrew the auger from the
hole, to their great surprise, it was fol
lowed by a violent current of air that
threw up stones as large as hen eggs,
ten or fifteen feet high. For a few mo
ments when the hole was first opened,
the air wail accompanied by a stream of
water which was thrown ten or twelve
feet high. The water, however, soon
ceased coming, and the air gushed out
' with such force that the roar could be
distinctly heard fifty or sixty rods dis
tant. On touching fire to the air it
I caught, and the flames flashed twenty
feet high, and came near burning the
building, covering the machinery in
which it is located. They finally sue
ceeded, with considerable difficulty, in
stopping it, by forcing down blankets,
and driving a spile into the hole, which
was their only means of stopping the
the air or gas, end extinguishing the
flames. For several moments after the
hole was stopped, the earth trembled
and shook for some distance around,
as though an eruption was about to take
place. The people, who, by this time
had gathered to the number of about
one hundred, were greatly alarmed at
these symptoms, and scattered with all
possible rapidity, supposing that " Mil
lerism" was about coming to a focus, or
that they were about to be blown up sky
high by an earthquake. From the time
it was opened Wilt was thus closed, was
about six hours, and the air gushed out
all of the time with unabated force.
It has been opened several times since
with the same eflcet. The power and
force of the air does not seem to dimin
ish in the least. The Messrs. Grangers
are proposing to secure it with apparat
us so as to shut it off and let it out at
leisure, and test its real qualities. The
people in that vicinity are all confident
now, that it can be conveyed here in
pipes, and successfully used in light
ning the city with gas, fOin this great
underground Gasometer. We learn that
several scientific gentleman of this city
intend visiting it soon.
