State, in place of C. Darragh, resigned. This is
said to be a most excellent appointment.
The Syracuse Standard says the ladies or

laconic pattern, and pantaloons ala Turk. The
new style looks decidedly tidy and neat, and im
parts to the wearer quite a sprightly and youthful
appearance. Hope the ladies of Huntingdon will
not be slow in adopting the new style.
Massachusetts U. S. Senator.
•Charles Sumner, the Free Soil candidate for .
U. S. Senator in Massachusetts, was elected on
the 25th inst., by the votes of the Free Sellers
and Locofocos combined. The result was hailed
with demonstrations of great joy on the part of
the Free Soilers—flags were hoisted, guns fired,
processions formed, Sm., not only in the city of
Boston, but in all the small towns in the vicinity.
A MossTEß.—lt is stated that Col. N. C.
Baldwin, of Cleveland, Ohio, is about sending a
mammoth ox on a pilgrimage to the World's
Fair. He has been fattening him for eight years,
and he now weighs 4,000 lbs. The poor fellow is
so very fepble that be cannot travel more than
a mile per day on foot! His oxship challenges
the world to produce his equal!
FIRE.—A fire occurred in the town of Hones

blocks, in the most business part of the town,
were destroyed. The total loss is Bald to be about

A Cheerful Heart.
Harpy is ho who possesses a merry heart.
Golconda's brightest gems sink into insignifl
cane, when compared with the happiness enjoy
ed by a person who can always beast of having a
Cheerful heart. Trouble may come, clouds may
gather, and thick darkness surround the posse,-
or of this treasure, but they will vanish before
the bright ray of contentment which bursts forth
from the cheerful heart, as does the dow drop be
fore the morning sun. A cheerful heart not only
imp..rt - happiness to the possessor, but sheds its
healthful and' vivifying influence upon those by
whom it is surrounded. As the fresh, new blown
lower surrounds its faded companions with a rich
pc! fame and gives them a more life-like appear
ance to the eye of the beholder, so does the bright,
joyous countenance of one who is blest with a
cheerful htc't drive sadness and gloom from the
hearts of those with whore they associate.
Let others boast of their gold, their lands, their
palaces and their fame; but give us the cheerful
heart, where contentment reigns, the heart that
smiles at trouble, laughs at the vicissitudes through
which it is called to pass, and kicks "dull care"
to the dogs—it is worth more than wealth or
'The Secretary of War line issued orders
for the disbanding of Company A, of the Second
Artillery, now at Fort M'Henry, and commanded
by Major Sedgwick. This splendid company
was favorably known throughout the Union as
Duncan's Battery, the same that "opened the
ball" with Mexico at the battle of Palo Alto, anti
was in nearly every engagement during the war.
'Tis a pity that such n noble company should be
stricken from the rolls of the army. We want it
distinctly understood, Mr. Secretary of Wur, that
we hereby enter our protest against any such pro-

lature number about 450—many of them including
several distinct laws; 431 of the Acts were sign

and several since. This number of Acts equals
that of any preceding session, although the period
ofthe late session was much shorter.
The Whigs in Motion,
The Whigs of gallant little Lebanon, met in
county convention, on the 14th ult., and appoint
ed delegates to the State Convention, instructed
to support Gov. Johnston from first to last. Reso
lutions asserting the confidence of the convention
in the Administration of President Fillmore, ap
proving that of Gov. Johnston, and declaring Gen.
Scott to have been the first choice of the Whigs of
Lebanon for years, were adopted.
The Whigs of Bradford county held a meeting
on the 7.th alt, tool adopted resolutions sustaining
the National and State administrations, and de

and held to bail in the sum of $2,000 for a fur

a gentleman of Frankford with obtaining $4O
from him under pretence of curing his daughter of

The hotly of the coach was tffi•own front the

against a tree. Among the passengers was a lady
carrying a flower pot containing a rare plant.—
Before she was fairly extricated, she inquired for
her flower-pot, and after having got possession of

eight pistols, and endeavored to force their way
into the house, but were repulsed by the police.

FROM BRAZIL AND BUENOS Atens.—Advices
have been received from Rio Janeiro to the 7th,
and from Buenos Ayres to the 2d of March. It
was the general opinion that there would be war
between the two countries. The Brazillian Gov
ernment had issued its Treasury notes for four
millions of dollars. We learn from Buenos Ayres,
that General Rosas again talked of .resigning.—

D.A IE L WEB STEIL
THE FLORIDA EVERGLADES.-GOY. Brown, of
Florida, has made a very considerable exploration
of the Everglades; the opinion he has arrived at
and confidently entertains, is, that not only is a
thorough drainage impracticable, hitt, if it could
be effected, the deposite Mid bare would be found
to be a purely vegetable decomposition, light
enough when dry, to be blown away, and quite its
combustible as peat. The Everglades are inters
persed with numerous channels and basins of a
depth below the level of the ocean, with a lime
stone or a sand bottom; and, where the absence
of all current permits the vegetable deposites to
accuinulate to a greater or less depth, it is still so
loose and unsubstantial that many years exposure
to the action'of the min and atmosphere will be
necessary to impart to it the qualities of soil. By
deepening the outlets to the sea, the water of the
Everglades could be materially lowered, so as to
reclaim land about the margin, and drain the nu
merous islands interspersed through this great
waste of waters, but nothing Snore can he done.
The waters of the Everglades teem with fish of
many varieties, and in such numbers one must see
Cenn.—The U. S. Mail steamer Ohio, at New
York, left Havana on the 19th ultimo. She
bropght two hundred passengers and six hundred
thousand dollars in gold dust, and twenty thou
sand dollars in specie on freight.
There was great excitement at Havana in res
pect to another invasion. So confidently was such
un event anticipated, that for the week before the
Ohio left, the troops were ordered to sleep on their
arms, and to be ready to march at a moment's
A foolish report was in circulation at Havana,
and generally believed, that Oceans) of the fail
ure of the Ohio to arrive in due season, on her
trip from New Orleans, was that she had been de
tained to bring out en invading force. So great
was the excitement on the arrival of the steamer,
that hundreds of people were waiting on the mole,
eager to obtain a view of the expected invaders.
They were apparently disappointed when the stea
mer passed quietly along to her moorings.
Rion GIFTS.—CoI. Collyer, lute Collector of
San Ftaneisco, is in Washington and has with him
some splendid memorials of his popularity in Cal
ifornia, to wit: a golden goblet and golden salver,
the latter presented by the officers of the Cus
toms, and the formbr by the merchants of San
Francisco, in token of their esteem and regard
for Col. Collyer. Both mticles were wrought in
San Francisco, and in the most beautiful manner.
They weigh sixty ounces, and cost $3,000.
A joint committee of the Legislature of Penn
sylvania, estimates the value of the present annu
al yield of the coal mines of Pennsylvania, at $17,-
800,000, and the annual products of furnaces,
forges and rolling mills, at no less than $28,000,-
000. In about two and a half years—the time
since the discovery of the gold mines of Califor
nia—it is estimated that $95,000,000 have been
taken out, or at the rate of $38,000,000 per an
itum. The coal and iron of Pennsylvania are
therefore more productive than are California's

The President's Proclamation.
We publish below President Fillmore's procla
mation in reference to the Cuban affair. It will
no doubt be read with interest by all. The Re
public, in speaking.of it, says it explains itself and
requires no present commentary. It states the
facts, lays down the law, and warns offenders of
the consequences of violating it in plain and expli
cit language. Cuba is 'prepared to repel aggress
ion. The Governmet of the United States is de
termined to preserve our neutrality, and to pun
ish its violation. We apprehend that, between
the two Governments, pirates and •plunderers will
stand but a poor chance:—
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE U. STATES.
A PIIOCLAMATION.—Whereas there is reason to
believe that a Military Expedition is about to be
fitted out in the United States with intention to
invade the island of Calm, a colony of Spain, with
which Ibis country is at pence; and whereas it is
believed that this expedition is instigated and vet
on foot chiefly by foreigners, who dare to make
our shores the scene of their guilty and hostile pre
parations against a Friendly Power, and seek, by
falsehood and misrepresentation, to seduce our
own citizens, especially the young and inconsider
ate, into their wicked schemes—an ungrateful re
turn for the benefits conferred upon them by this
people in permitting them to make our country an
asylum from oppression, and in flagrant abuse of
the hospitality thus extended to them .
And whereas such expeditions can only be re
garded as adventures for plunder, and rubbery, and
must meet the condemnation of the civilized world,
whilst they are derogatory to the character of our
country, in violation of the laws of nations, and
expresesly prohibited by our own statutes, which
declare "that if any person shall, within the ter
ritory or jurisdiction of the United States, begin or
set on foot, or provide or prepare the means for
any military expeditiOn or enterprise, to be carried
on from thence against the territory or dominions
of any Foreign Prince o? State, or of any colony,
district, or people, with whom the United States
are at peace, every person so offending shall be
deemed guilty of a high misdemeanor and shall be
lined not exceeding three thousand dollars, and
imprisoned not more than three years.
NOW, therefore, I have issued this my Procla
mation, warning all persons who shall connect
themselves with any such enterprise or expedition,
in violation of our laws and national obligations,
that they will thereby sullied themselves to the
heavy penalties denounced Against such offences,
and will forfeit their claim to the protection of this
Government, or any interference on their behalf,
no matte• to what extremities they may be redu
ced in consequence of their illegal conduct. And,
therefore, I exhort all good citizens, as they re
gard our national reputation, as they respect their
own laws, and the laws of nations, as they value
the blessings of penee and the welfare of their coun
try, to discountenance, and by all lawful means
prevent, any such enterprise ; and I call upon
every officer of this*Government, civil or military,
to use all efforts in his power to arrest for trial and
punishment every such offender against the lows
lof the country.
Given under my hand the twenty-fifth day of
April, in the year of our Lord one thousand,
eight hundred and fifty-one, and the seventy
fifth of the independence of the United States.

A travelling correspondent of Frazier's Maga
zine writes from Cincinnati, and thus describes
the economy by which the hog is used up:
"What crocodiles were in Egypt, what crows
are in Bengal, or storks in Holland, pigs are here,
with trifling difference—their sacredness of charac
ter lasts but as long as their mortal coiWand this
is abbreviated without ceremony, and froin'the
most worldly motives. In life the pig is free—is
humored; ho ranges the streets; he reposes in the
thorough-ftires; he walks between your horse's legs
or your own; he is everywhere respected; but let
the thread of his existence be severed, and shade
of Mahomet! what a change! They think in Cincin
nati of nothing but making the most of him. How
many of his kind perish annually to cement the
vast prosperity of this city cannot be told. About
thirty years ago, when it contained only one-fifth
of its existing population, a few bold speculators
began the trade. Selecting the hams and the
sides of the animal, they made pickled pork; of
the rest they took small account; soon however,
the idea occurred to ono more accurate than his
fellows, that the heads and the feet, nay, even the
spine and the vertebrae, might he turned to ac
count. Trotters and cheeks bad their partisans,
and these parts took up in the market. About
this time the makers of sausages Caught the in
spiration, they found these luxuries saleable, & so
many pigs were to be slaughtered that the butch
ers were willing to do it fur nothing—that is to
say, for the perquisites of the entriis and offal
alone. The next step was due to the genius of
'France. A Frenchman established a brush man
ufactory, and created a market for the bristles;
but his ingenuity was outdone by one of his coun
trymen, who soon after arrived. This man was
determined, it seems, to share the spoil; and think
ing nothing else left, collected the fine hair or
wool, dried, and curled it, and stuffed mattresses
with it; but he was mistaken in thinking nothing
else left as yet little was done with the lard; they
invented machines, and squeezed oil out of it—
the refuse they throw away. Mistaken men again!
this refuse was the substance of stearin° candles,
and made a fortune for the discoverer of the secret.
Lastly cane eine who could press chemistry into
the service of Mammon; he saw the blood of count
less swine flowing through the gutters of the city;
it was all that was left of them ; but it went to
his heart to see it thrown away; he pondered long,

The New Orleans Picayune published an ac
count a week or so ago, on the authority of a Mr.
Hall, stating that a number of Americans in Ni
canoe had been murdered by the natives, that
the most inveterate hostility was manifested to our
countrymen by the Nicaraguans, and that the
Americans generally were compelled to flee the
country for safety. The story made a great stir
in our commercial cities, and much indignation
was expressed. It turns out, however, to be en
tirely false.. Instead offificen Americans murder
ed, no the account stated, there was but one, a Mr.
A. C. Maynard, who was attacked by four per
sous and killed in consequence of some injury in
flitted upon them. Instead of the Nicaraguan
authorities refusing redress, three of the murder
ers were taken, tried and condemned to be shot.
So fur from there being eight hundred Americans
about to leave the country, Mr. Hall himself was
the only one forced to leave, and not without good
reason, its he had killed one of the natives in an
altercation, and a reward of $lOOO was set upon
his head, The Government and people of Nicara

the Americans, which is manifested in various
ways. They are jealous of British influence ; on
account of the Mosquito
Contested Congressional Election.
The matter of the contested election for Con
gress in the district composed of the counties of
Lucerne, Columbia, Wyoming nnd.Montour, has
been brought before a special Court convened at
Danville, Judge Jayne, of Wyoming, presiding.
The lion. Henry M. Fuller, member elect, and
Col. H. B. Wright, Dem., who is contesting the
sent, are both present, and the case excites very
great interest. lion. Joseph Casey, of Union
county appears ns Counsel for Mr. Fuller, and
the Hon. John Brishan, of Wyoming, as Counsel
for Mr. Wright. The point in controversy is the
admission, by the return judges, of the vote of
Montour county. The trial will probably occupy
the whole of the week.
' The majority for Mr. Fuller in the district was
65, Montour county having given him 1717, and
Mr. Wright 473. Mr. Wright alleges frauds in
the election, and that illegal votes were received, &
immediately upon the assembling of the judg es to
cast op the votes for Congress, protested on this
ground against the vote of Montour being receiv
ed. The certificate of election, however, was giv
en to Mr. Fuller, and the present issue is to ascer
tain whether illegal votes were polled. A large
number of witnesses have been examined but from
the testimony, thus far given, only three illegal
votes have been proved to have been polled, and
one of them was cast for Mr. Wright.
itr The contractors of the Pennsylvania Rail
road are now busily aligned in laying the rails on
the central road between Johnstown end Lock

that the cars will he running west as far as Lock
port, which is 26 miles east of Greensburg, by the
first of July next. It is believed that the road
will be completed to within eight miles of Greens

vent the cars from running through from Phila
