flanking Home at Lewistown.
We observe by the Lewistown Gazette that
several wealthy and highly respectable citizens
of Lancaster county are about to establish, in
Lewistown, a private Banking house, to go in
to c potation in the month of August. •The cap
ital of this establishment will be devoted exclu
sively to the legitimate business of banking.—
Of this the strongest assurances are given, and
the high character and great exlierience of the
gentlemen concerned in the House, justifies us
in giving full credit to their word. Relying
upon the faith of these assurances, WO din con
fidently say to our Mends, that these Bankers
will not speculate in Real Estate, or in the nec
essaries of life; they will not exact Usurious
interest from borrowers, nor will it be neeessa
ry for them to pay heavy premiums to sustain
their credit. The capital will not be loaned in
large sums to a le , * favored persons, to the ex
clusion of many o•hers of equal responsibility.;
nor will it be locked up , it; permanent loans or

with the capital invested, will promptly and
cheerfully be afforded. The ptiper of the Banks
of this State, which are solvent but under par,
will be received on deposite, and par money paid

Rico.—The Globe wants fo know "whether
the griden, goes to show that Gen. Taylor has
'no• enemies fo punish,' and has 'no friends to
reward,' and whether he is a Whig President or
a Democratic President." Why, neighbor, it
is not long since you professed to know all
about Gen. Taylor. You ventured to predict
that he would deceive the Whigs. You said
.that the Whigs were "going it btiml"—that
Taylor had given no pledges, an; that nobody
knew any thing about Isis principles. Now you
are abusing the old Pattibt every week for "vi
olating Isis pledges !" "Has he no enernies - fo
punisla" Do you call turning a man out of of
lice punishing him? If so, why was yoiii'neigh
hor, Mr. Cunningham, punished by l'emoVal
from the Collector's office here? And' why
were a boat of Canal and Railroad officers pun- -
isbed in the same way last spring by the Dem
ocratic Canal Commissioners? "Is Gen. 'Tay

can scarcely answer for to,fin'.' Ile is the

neighbor ? lie, Le, he!
labia of their own Genie
The Locofoco papers, in their "haste to shed
innocent blood" by attacking the indefatigable
Whig State Treasurer, GIDEON J. HALL, have
got themselves and their friends into a world
of trouble. Our neighbor of the Globe has back
ed clan out of controversy. His first charge
was that the Legislature had ; not appropriated
money enough to pay the "poor laborers" the
Ohl debts due iheM tiu iltis diVision. Next he
asserted that the State Treasiirei would not pay
but the appropriation fast enough to meet the
dergandi df thede "Pooh laborers." In answer to
these charges we showed that the Supetvisor of
this division had drawn since April last TWEN
ing one hundred ; and we called upon the Globe
editot to prove hi's charges by publishing the
names of the laborers already paid and those
remaining unpaid. This he declines to do in
the following language
" This neighbor, is asking a little too much
.—;-a list of all the names of laborers oh this Di
vision who have been paid since the present
Supervisor has had charge of the improvements,
would occupy perhaps at least one half of our
paper. If nothing else will "satisfy public cu
riosity" but the publication of such a list by us,
public curiosity must go unsatisfied,"
Can the above be true? Let us see. The one
half of the Globe would contain about TWO
THOUSAND names, allowing one line for each
name! And yet the Globe editor informs us
that it would occupy at "least one-half " of his
paper to publish the names of the laborers al
ready paid, by the present Supervisor, saying I
nothing about those remaining unpaid ! ! Aga in
we ask, can this be true? If it is, what a
spectacle have we presented ! More than TWO
THOUSAND poor laborers, who earned their
money by the hardest kind of toil—standing in
thud and wafer frequently up to their knees for
dayskept out of their money by a party that
is always prating about the rights of the poor I
man. For be it known, when these debts were
contracted, the Locofocos had the Governor, a
majority in the Legislature, and a majority in
the Canal Board ; and all the Canal officers be
to the LocOfo'cO Party. And we dare
the Globe to show that while these laborers
were Compelled to wait for their pay, the Dam
erratic Governor, Democratic members and
Democratic Canal Commissioners, and the Dem
caratic Supervisors,mud bosses, &c., &c.i were
not regularly fobbing their•.llo, to say nothing
of the stealing,. And Morris Longetreth, who
has performed no service whatever, cave as
sisting in the election of Locofoco Canal and
Railroad officers, for almost a year, has also
been regularly drawing his three dollars per
day! But they think it an easy matter to gull
common people, as the laborers are called by I
these Democratic officers. Loud professions of
sympathy they think will do to keep them
straight, while the officers are quarterly ma
king a simultaneous rush upon the Treasury, I
receiving large salaries, some of them for doing I
nothing, while none are employed half their
time ! If this is Democracy, good Lord save I
the tour laborer from its embrace !
Thus it will be seen that in a feeble attempt
to get out of one difficulty, the editor of the
Globe has plunged his party into a still more
unfortunate dilemma. Ile had made charges !
agginst the State Treasurer which he could not
sustain. And hence he makes anexcuse which,
if true, shows rt grosser imposition on the labor
ers than we even suppossil the Locofoco officers
' had been practising. But the Globe says we
can call on the Supervisor and examine his dis
bursements. What have we to do with the Su-
pervisort What right have we to call on him
to show his aeCounts to Us/ We have made no ;
charges against him. it may he he is conduct- I
iug his business fairly. We only stated the
amount of mehey he had received, and offered
the Globe the opportunity to make good its
charges against the State Treasgrer by piffilish
lug the names of the creditors who had receiVed
it, and those still unpaid. This opportun,ty the
Globe has seen proper to decline, for the reason
above stated. Whether the reason giVen is true
lor satisfactory, we leave the public to decide.
Sdflice it to say, the Globe has backed out of its
charges against the State Treasurer—and in so
I doing has made an admission which we think its
party friends will not thank the editor for.

on the decline, the hope is entertained that we
may escape altogether. Indeed such is the
opinion of oar physicians.

Drake's Ferry Bridge
The attack upon the County Commissionars,
by a writer in the last Globe, in regard to the
construction of the Drake's Ferry Bridge, is as
mean as it is ungenerous. If the writer knows
anything, he knows that the bridge at that place
was put under contract among the first, after
the flood and destruction Of bridges in 1847. It
was let to Mr. Mitilderi,, responsible and usual
ly an energetic contractor. But we learn that
during last summer Mr. M. was retarded in the
prosecution of his work by the sickness of him
self and hands. And the insinuation that the
Commissioners have designedly delayed this
bridge, will only excite the contempt of all who
have any personal acquaintance with them.—
They are as anxious for its completion as any
one. g , It is a notorious fact," says the writer,
that sufficient tax was levied to build all the
bridges." The fact is notorious that they did
sot levy sufficient lax for this purpose, and
hence the Legislature authorized them to bor
row money.
It is our hope that the Drake's Ferry and all
other county bridges under contract and unfin
ished, may be pushed to a speedy completion.
And we know that the Commissioners enter
tain a similar desire. And hence we cannot but
believe that the writer in the Globe, and also
the editor of that paper, knew that great injus
tice is done the Commissioners by the insinua
tion that they are designedly delaying the con
struction of the Drake's Ferry Bridge.
Temperance Lecture.
Mr. Fletcher Brooks delivered a Temper
ance Lecture in the Methodist Church in this
borough on Thursday evening last. At least
this was the name that appeared on the bills,
although it is contended by those who have seen
the gentlemen before, that he formerly went by
the name of Eastbrooks. However, let his name
be what it may, as a Lecturer Ott Temperance,
the universal verdict in this place is that he is
a h rrrabrtg. . We have rarely heard the subject
so feebly presented as it was on this occasion.
We understand that the gentleman sings well,
and is a good teacher of music. If this be so,
we would advise him to turn his attention ex
clusively to that branch of science, and not
bore the public any further by his attempts
at Lecturing on Temperance.
Bs*The Globe says that we stated that Mr.
Gamble w•as a lawyer with the purpose of in
juring him. of so. NO respectable profes
sion, trade nr calling injures a man in our esti
mation. But as the Globe informs us that he is
not a lawyer, we cheerfully make the correction.
Will the Globe inform us what Mr. Gamble's
calling is?
Thu Cholera/

The August Interest.
For the first time, says the North American,
since the resumption of the payment of the in
terest upon her State debt, Pennsylvania will,
on the let of August next, redeem her honor
witEout having recourse to a temporary loan to
make up deficiencies. The amount on deposit
to the credit of the State Tr i easurer is now
$700,000, and this sl i m 'dill tie ihcreased on
SatUrclay next by the payment, tin the part of
the County of Philadelphia, by its Treasurer, of
Ptiia is the most gratifying, and in all r oints
of view dties exceeding credit to Mr. Ball, our
worthy State Treasurer, who has relaxed no ef
fort to bring about this state of things so honor
able to the Commonwealth,.. It mint be borne
in mind that he has accomplished it in the face
of heavy drafts upon him by the Canal 'Commis
sioners, amounting day after, day, for months to
gether, to over $.1,000 per day& During the
period from the 11th April to July 3d, he met
drafts for the public works atone, to the untisii
slimily large amount of $3OO l lOl 92 , --drafts is
sued at a time when it was known he was strain
ing every nerve to sustain the pledged faith' of
the State, and hurried in by a Locofoco majori
ty of the Board of Canal Commissionets ih a
manner which permitted no other inference than
that of a deliberate attempt to cripple him.—
What they had failed to attend to at the just
time, when a locofoco administration was
in power, they have burthened the present
one with, and every citizen must be thankful
that the bad design has been frustrated. The
honor of the State will be sustained and its ob
ligations redeemed, and in par prnds, which
has not been accomplished by any previous ad
Foreign News.
The North American says :—The anticipa
tions which preceding events warranted have
been fully realized, and the army of Oudinot is
at last encamped within the walls of the Eter
nal City. By whatever policy or motive France
may have been governed in this invasion, it
must now soon be discovered; for the object
being gained, there can no longer be secrecy
in developing the alliances with which it is iden
tified, or the purposes of ambition and power
with which it Was instigated.
There is no view in which we have been able
to regard the condUct of the present dynasty is
France, which does not reflect discredit upon
the weak man who, for the moment, rules her
destinies, and dishonor upon the advisers by
whom he is surrounded. Instead of being the
champion of popular rights, France has descen
ded, under Louis Napoleon, to the place of hum
ble friend to the tottering ruinarchies by which
she is surrounded, and may slow be regarded as
the supple tool of the Czar of Russia, whose de
signs are directed to stemming the tide of Re
publican progress in Europe, and checking the
spirit of Revolution so rife in Germany, Hun
gary, and Italy.
The successful invasion of Rorrie must soon
resolve the doutts which haVe long agitated
the public mind, as to the real motive of Louis
Napoleon and his Ministry, in di ecting their
arms against the liberal movement in the Roman
States ; and we are fully prepared for any dis
closure which may convict them of a desire to
sacrifice the professed principles of Liberty
and Equality" under which they rode into pow
er, arid of a purpose to unite with Russia and
Austria, in their selfish design of consolidating
an alliance to' overawe and oppress by brutal
force, the millions who ate novi en'gageri in a
strurgte for national rights.
Wei on this side Of the Atlintic, cannot be
indifferent spectators to the impending issue; and
sympathising with the cause of popular liber
ty, in whatever proper 'Oita it may exhibit
itself in the old world, we wait Witlrarrxiety for
such further tidings as may serve to disclose the
present policy of France towards Italy: The
pains that her rulers have haken to envelope
this policy in mystery and doubt, have excited
earnest suspicion and caused the prmbundest
mortification to those who generously cheered
her own efforts at redemption, when she claim
ed to be actuated by principles of right and jus

CHARLESTON, .7!t 104
An extra from the office of the
Republican says:—By the arrival
of the U. S. steamer Omulgee, Capt
•Wileon, we have received intelligence,
via St. Augustine, that the Indians hava
again renewed hostilities.
SAvs:oratt, Saturday Evening, July,
Information has been received in this
city, from Flo rida, .
,rida, stating that the re
mitining Seminoles have become hostile
'and committed noir:ewes depredations
oh Indian River, in South Florida. From
the 1)t information ) we learn that in
the early part Of last week the Indians
made an attack ,on the settlements on
Indian River, in St.
.Lucie county, arid
commenced plundering the houses and
firing on the settlers.
The Indians were in considerable
fininbers, so tolibli so that a defence by
the whites were entirely impossible,
One person, a Mr. Baker Was killed and
his body horribly mutilated:
Major Wm. F. Russell, Deputy Col.
lector at Indian River, was shot in the
arm, and It is feared that his family
have fallen into the hands of the-Indians,
as they have not been heard of since.
A number of other persons, mostly
females, are also missing,
The settlers were obliged to leave
their dwellings and take to the river,
and come up the coast outside.
Some twenty men, women and chit=
dren have arrived at St. Augustine,
who report that others are on their way.
It is reported that despatches have
been forwarded to Washington, stating
the (acts, and likewise that an express
had been sent to Tampa, by the com
manding officer at St. Augustine.
The settlers on the frontier are be
coming generally alarmed, and are mov
ing to the larger settlements for safety.
The inilitary post of Tampa being the
residence of the frontier agent, has
given the Indians an excuse for coming
into the settlements, thereby throwing
them into contract with the whites.
The Indians are now supplied with
arms and ammunition and scattered in
small parties throughout the frontiers,
as they will be, will give serious trouble.
SLAvrt STEArdsn.--What with the ravages of
the cholera, the incursions of Kidnappers, and
the efforts of the slaves themselves assisted by
confederates to escape, slave property at the
South is rapidly becoming of a very precarious
and insecure tenure. Every day's mails bring
us fresh accounts of run a ways, negro stealing.
Sec. The latest is a long account which We
find in the Helena (Ark.) Shic/d,of a system of
slitve stealing which has just come to light in
Monroe county, Ark., and in which several
residents there, who had hitherto borne high
characters, were implicated. Two slaves Vs ho
disappeared last fall were sold by these men, and
the latter shared the profits with them, and then
got them to run away attain.

there is no more deserving or capable men than

would men mote acceptable than him- There
is nevertheless, a very large proportion of the
citizens of our county who believe it greatly to
the advaritage and convenience &f the people
generally to have hoe County Commissioner a

town and have business in that office, • they. can
have it attended to without waiting until edurt

people in your town, it makes no difference ;
they are always present when. the Board are in
