Bee New Advertisements.
J. & W. Saxton have just returned from
the city with a very extensive and splendid
assortment of Dry Goods of all qualities
and prices. These gentlemen do a very
heavy business, and are always ready to
accommodate their friends and customers
to any thing in their line.
In our issue to-day will be found an ad
vertisement of the Mount Union Hotel, now
kept by Isaac & William Myers, who are ,
clever and obliging, and worthy the confi
dence and patronage of the travelling cons
muntty. A line of coaches runs tri-weekly
between their hotel and Chambersburg fur
the accommodation of the public. Also, a
daily line as far as Shade Gap; and the
mail is now carried daily to Shirleysburg.
Arrangements are being made to have a
daily mail as far as Shade*Gap; all of which
accommodations and conveniences have
been put in operation and will be conduct

Our friend, Edmund Snare, has just re
turned from the East with a most splendid
and extensive assortment of Jewelry,cloeks,

Mr. Snare is very obliging, and takes
pleasure in exhibiting his stock to all who
favor him with a call. Those who wish
nest. substantial articles of the latest style
and best quality, in his line, will do well
to patronize his establishment.
The Card of S. Toram, N. E. corner of
Ninth and Market eta., Phila., appears in

all accounts for back subscription settled
before we enlarge our paper, and during

They are clever and obliging fellows, and
if they donrt t receive a very large portion
of public patronage, it is not because they
can't make cheap, neat, and substantial ar

ty until all fines imposed by the court shall
be paid. The defendant can appeal from
the decision of these special courts to the
Quarter Sessions of the county, on the
ground of illegal proceedings.
These are a few of the prominent fea
tures of the bill, and although we do not
like the provision of some of its sections,
yet we highly approve its general object.
The lessening of the expenses now attend
, ing the criminal proeeedings in our Courts
of Quarter Sessions, is a subject of great
Imagnitude to the tax-payers of every cow:-
We all know what an enormous unne
cessary expense our own county has here
tofore been subject to, in consequence of
absolutely trifling and unimportant matters
in the Quarter Sessions. Causes of great
magnitude, and of infinite importance to
the parties concerned, have been put off
from term to term, on account, often, of
the greater portion of the time of the court
having been consumed in the trial of petty
cases in the Sessions, frequently originating
in personal hatred, malice, or jealousy.
Few cases of a criminal nature come be
fore our Comte that Justices of the Fence
could not just as well try and pars judg
ment on. If a bill of this nature should
pass or Legislature, there would be a vast
saving to the tax-paying portion of the
community. The money they have no* to
pay to defray the expenses incident to our
Courts of Quarter Sessions, would in part
be saved, and there would be, in addition,
a vast deal of trouble avoided.
In our opinion, the general purpose of
the bill is commendable, and should, we
think, be so regarded by all who feel an
interest in their own personal and pecunia
ry welfare, and in the prosperity of the
Hon. James Pollock.
The Blair County Whig, and other Whig
journals of the State, suggest the Hon
James Pollock, of Northumberland coun
ty, as the next Whig candidate for Gover
nor of Pennsylvania. This suggestion we
most heartily endorse. We know James
Pollock, and there is no man in the State
of Pennsylvania we would rather support
for that important office. We know, too,
eat there is no man in the State that would
be more likely to lead the Whig party to
certain victory than the talented and pop
ular ex-Congressman of the “old thirteenth
district," lie is a gentleman of brilliant
talents, and one of the most pleasing, elo
quent, and effective speakers we have ever
listened to. His personal and political
popularity at the North is unbounded, as
was evinced by his repeated triumphs in
one of the strongest Locofoco Congression
al districts in the State, carrying every
county in the district. The Whig party
could do no better than to nominate him as
their next candidate for Governor.—Read

Broad Top Coal and Ore.
The letter published below is from the
Geologi.4, J. P. LESLEY, Esq.,who has
recently examined the Btodd tip Coal
Field :
PHILADELPHIA, March 15th, 953,
L. T. Watson, Esq.—Sir: In reply to
your request for my professional opinion
upon the merits of the Broad Top Coal
and Ore, I can only repeat what ,others
have already said, that, so soon as any ea
sy access to market is given to these min
erals, such as the proposed railroad to
Huntingdon, they will take a high rank in
the market, and be very valuable to those
who work them properly. The coal, es
pecially that of the lowest and most exten
sive bed of the region, is of the finest qnal
ity. The lowest bed is unsittpassel for
forge fires, and as a steam generator ; and
Mr. Perry ; a high authority in practical
iron making, assures me that it can be
worked raw or uncoked in the furnace. It
is a very pure white ash, standing midway,
between the semi-anthracite and setni-bitu- 1
mious coals, than which no better charac-I
ter could be given to a bed. It lies so as
to induce me to believe that it. is little or
not at all faulty; is accessible on both sides
of the valleys that drain the interior; has a
breasting of from 500 to 1500 feet along
the mountain for several miles; extends al
so over the bottom of the adjoining basins,
and will be found, I think, to maintain its
average thickness of 5i to 6 very regular
ly througout its whole extent. It is, there
fore, practically Inexhaustible. There are
other valuable beds higher in the series,
but this lower is the bed of the region.
'1 he furnace at Hopewell has the coal
within a mile of it, an immensely valuble
deposits of cold short iron ore outcropping
behind iti an ore which will be pursued
hereafter from gap to gap, the whole
length of Terrace mountain, and upon
which a hundred furnaces might run a cen
tury. In the presence of the not short
ores of the neighborhood, and worked in
the old fashion, this ore has been little es
teemed. But Mr. Perry confirms me in the
opinion, that hereafter this difference of
value is destined to vanish, as he says he
can, by using the bituminous coals coked,
or the Broad-Top coals raw, produce out
of this very ore a metal equal to the best
in the market., and owing to the excellence
of the situation, at an expense of several,
dollars a ton less than iron can be produced
upon the Lehigh with anthracite.
Besides thiiinexhaustible bed at the fur
nace, the less reliable, and therefore less
valuable carbonates of the coal measures
are yet to be proved, and may yield a largo
supply of ore, nearly all of it red short.—
For instance, the coal bed which over a
vast region of Western Pennsylvania car
ries the "burr stone" iron ore, upon which
many of the Allegheny River furnaces run,
occurs in• the Broad Top close by, and ef
forts will be made hereafter to explore its
overlying ore.
The Montours Ridge (or Danville) Iron
ore, runs along in its proper position in the
lower red shale at the foot of Tussey's
Mountain, within four or five miles of the
furnace, and has already been extensively
worked, and is of its usual quality.
It is my opinion, from what I have seen
of the western side of the Broad Top, that
it presents remarkable advantages in the
quality and pose of its beds of fuel, in the
wants of the surrounding region, in its rea
dy access to market by a branch road from
Ote Pennsylvania Railroad of thirty miles
hi length, in its beds cf ore, and in its wa
ter power, &c. for the investment of ener
gy and wealth.
am, six, very respectfully yours, &c.

The Recall of Santa Anna.
Santa Anna is called to the supreme pow
er in Mexido for the sixth time. The ablest
man of his country, hti is her evil genius ;
always distnetted, and resorted to by the
people only when all is desperate; and an
archy and disolution stare them in the face,
his temporary popularity has not failed to
be followed by universal execration; on each
former occasion he Has only made worse a
state of things alrbady intolerable; and
now his return wears a gloomy and sinister
aspect. It is like the calling in of an ex
ecutioner to end the life and the sufferings
of a patient who cannot hope to recover,
and is resolved no longer to struggle with
his pangs.
For a quarter of a century Mexico has
steadily approached her doom. A public
debt whose interest she has not paid; an ig
norant clergy owning a great part of the
property and hindering all improvements; a
people so destitute of native energy as to
tend perpetually to lose themselves in the
native Indian races, not absorb or expel the
latter, to make room for a manlier and
stronger breed—without education and
trained only to be plundered and led by
the nose by the great men or the groat
scamps above them; with no industry and
no security for property; with a horde of
military officers to prey upon the nation
and to make of its government the prize of
lawless violence;--where has there been
any solid ground i to hope that Mexico could
rise to au honorable position among the
nations of the world ? There has been
none, and however benevolent sentimental
ity might deplore the fact, and dream of
better times for the future, Mexico has
made xto advances toward real independence
and substantiaLpower. For these twenty
years the nominal expenses of her adminis
tration have exceeded the revenue, and the
deficit has been covered by leaving the for
eign creditor unsatisfied, and referring the
domestic employee to private taxation, in
the shape of bribes and robbery, for pay
ment which the Treasury could not make.
As is always the ease under such circum
stances, the rich have grown richer and
the poor poorer, while the country has
been torn by political feuds, Federalists
disputing with Centralists the possession
of the unlsatspy people. Then the war with
the U. States cause to give a fatal shock
to the decaying system: and now at last
with all genuine national spirit extinguish
ed, this unprincipled intriguer is brought
back to undertake the Government, in
which his highest success hat been tyran
ny, anti his best skill has only served to
envenom the disease. \t e may be sure
that whatever he now does will only con
tribute to precipitate the ruin of his coun
- How the Mexican Nationality will disap
pear is a problem which time only can solve.
Tho ordinary impression is that the' entire
country will be incorporated into the U. S.
But there are reasons why such an event
cannot easily or rapidly be accomplished.—
The Mexicans do not love the Yankees.—
, They dread being swallowed by that om
, niverous Northern people. They fear tho.t
their religion sill he swept away in a flood
of toleration and Protestantism. And they
must desire by every means to avert the
fate. It is true that on the other hand,
I the wealthy and powerful class—the
gy alone excepted perhaps—fearful of the
ruin that now threatens to overwhlem eve
rything, would gladly sell the nation out'
to any bidder offering security for them
selves as the price. The bargain proposed
to Gen. SCOTT shows how greedily a trans
action of this sort would be taken bold of
by the class in question. But the people
of the United States are necessarily the
other day party to the bargain, and the
last experiment in the admission of Mexican
territory was not an easy or a pleasant one.
Along with the question of adiniting new
States beyond the Rio Grande, the other
question of Slavery and the Wilmot Provi
so inevitably comes. What man, what par ,
ty desires to have the country again con ,
vuleed with that I Does Gen. Pierce,
all his talk about annexation in the abt ,
strut? Would he like to face that issue,
and peril upon it the chances of his party
and his own , ambition I
But it is not well to cultivate excessive
confidence in the premises. Preposterous
as the annexation of six millions of Indians
and two millions of the mixed Mexican
race, may seem, with an unexampled anti
slavery agitation for its accompaniment, it
is possible that it may, yet be forced upon
us by the present administration, with Gen.
Santa Anna for its accomplice. Let there
not be too much reliance on the patriotic
common sense, or even on the enlighened
self-interest hich some ray attribute to
those now in power at Washington. The
crisis may be hurried to a decision before
the current four years are past.
Death of Mrs. Fillmore.
Mrs. Atmore died at Willard's hotel at
nine o'clock this morning. She had been
suffering with Pneumonia for some time
past, but no serious apprehensions were
entertained. until within a few days. The
immediate cause of her death was suffoca
tion, caused by the accumulation of water
upon the lungs.

State of Italy.
A correspondent of the Boston Traveler,
writing from Florence, sa:, s :
"Italy Is troubled to her heart's core.
In Florence; we cannot, of course, learn
the true extent of the late revolutionary
movements at Milan, Rimini Mantua, and
elsewkere. We only know ;hat blood has
been shed On both sides, and scaffolds
are again erected. On the part of the It
alians, the movement was premattite, but
I nt present all Italy is one vdlcaro, slum
bering, it is true; but acquiring strength
for an eruption, that will eventually force
foreign despotism and civil papacy from its
soil. The deep silent hatred borne to the
Priests and Austrians is frightful. It per
vades the very atmosphere, and is drawn
in at every breath by all classes but the,
few sold to their rulers by interest or cir
cumstances. Disguise it as we may, there
is a general uneasiness in Europe. Mon
archs and Governments distrust each oth
er; the people distrust both; peace is main
tained by bayonets, and not, as Mr. Cobden
would have us believe, by good motives.
Mrs. Fillmore.
The Tribune in speaking of the decease
of this estimable lady says, that Mrs. Fill
more was not fitted by nature to dazzle in
a ball-room nor to win admiration from
casual observers; nor did she find delight
in crowds or ostentatious display. Few,
however, can have known her without be
ing impressed with the blending in her
character of good sense with high princi
ple, of refined womanly feeling with active
beneficence. As a wife and mother, none
could be more exemplary; as a Christian,
few have more happily combined earnest
piety with unaffected humility. Her death
leaves a void in the better society of Buf
falo, which will not soon be filled—not to
speak of the narrower circle to which it is

often ns we hear it answered in the affirmative,

can remember, it is the only medicine which we
have ever known to affect a complete and perma

Feb. 2, 1853.
Very suddenly, near Shade Gap, on Saturday
evening, the 19th ult., Mr. JA?ES N. STiTT, aged
95 yearn.
The deceased was a man of unimpeachable
character, and exemplary habits; and was for
many years, an earnest and devoted member of
the Presbyterian Clime!). Although summoned
to meet his Jude, with but a few minutes warn.
ing, he gave evidence; by an honest and upright
walk through life, antl' also by a stria Christian
deportment, that he had, not neglected' to make
his peace with God, hilt had his lamp trimmed,
and was in readiness to enter in at the "coming
of the bride-groom." A bereaved widow and a
large fussily of children have been left eo'nfourn
the irreparable loss of en affectionate husband and
a kind slid indulgent parent.
The neighborhood' in which he lived deplores
him as one of its most esteemed and respectable
citizens. Each day, as it lengthened ont the
thread of Ilia existence and enlarged the bounds
of his acquaintance, encircled him, with new
friends and admirers. In short,
" None knew bins but to love,
None named him but to praise."
This sudden removal of one of the beloved ones
of our earthly Zion, is another manifestation of
the uncertainty of life, and the true middies of
death, and also whispers solemnly into the ears
of every ono, the admonition of Scripture—" Be
ye also ready, for in an hour when ye think not,
