Silver Minos in Lancaster County.
The Lancaster Independent Whig states that
the Old Silver Mines on the Pegun, that were
worked by an English company before the Rev.
olution, have recently been discovered and open.
od, with a prospect of rich reward, by Mr. E.
Bowen, aided by several capitalists of Phila
delphia. The whole of flint region on the Peg
an, marked on die map of that county as " sil
ver mine," seems to have been the scene of for
mer extensive mining operations. The Whig
says: . _ _
" The principal mineral found at this mine,
is nreentiferous Galena. a recent assay of which;
by Dr. Fahnesteek, of this city, shown it to
Contain upwards of five hundred dollars ($500)

ton. This, if we are not mistaken, in the rich

nest, and with a few exceptions the richest Os
--- IfidiTegard to the former history of this re
markable mine, little or nothing of a positive
character is known; It is well known, howev
er, that the Valley of the Pegna was one of the
earliest-settled districts of this county; that a
very populous Indian Village was situated near
file mine, called Psqueahae, and that, surroun
ding it, lived the Couestogas, the Susquehan
nes, the Shawnees, and other tribes of Indians.
The city of Lancaster was originally located
en the table-lands of Conestoga, only a short
distanee'from it. It is thus more than probe-'
ble that the'vieinity of this mine wee, at an ear
ly day, an important trading post with the In
dians. It is equally certain that the mine was
prosecuted by British capitalists, who resided
m England; that all their machinery, tools mid
implements were brought from that country;
and that the mines were worked for a consid
erable number of years, up to the time the Rev
olutionary war broke out. About this latter
point there is not, and never has been, the
least doubt. • All concurrent testimony and lo
cal tradition substantiate the fact, that, they
were worked with full vigor up to that period.
Commercial relations between England and
the United States, having • been thus cut off,
and the parties interested being residents in
England and owing loyalty to the King, of
course the mine wee abandoned—the tools and
implements, it is said, were buried somewhere
in the mine—the shafts and tunnels were care-
Ally closed //pt.-many of the miners and labor
ers, no doubt, Joined the ranks of the belliger
ent armies, and thus all operations ceased.—
In the meantime the war continued throuugh
a long, desperate and bloody struggle--and
subsequently the English and Seotch Irish, in
habiting the valley, gradually receded west
ward. and a new population composed almost
entirely of hard-working and humble German
farmers, began to pour in, to whom the appli
cations and remains of these mines were but
as a novelty not understood.
Mr.Bowe'n has thus far been engaged for the
most part in cleaning out the old shafts and
tunnels. One tunnel, or edit level, which we
entered, is about.pne hundred yards in length,
seven feet high, and live feet wide, driven
through eolid rock. A shaft along tho Perinea
creek, is about fifty feet deep, and an suit level
has just been eonnneueed, which wan probably'
intended to supersede the former, about one
hundred feet below. The main shaft, hoover,
which is supposed to Le from two to three hun
dred fret deep, has not yet been cleared out.
It is supposed that another tunnel runs under
that alluded to, from the main shaft. However
this may be, the vein appears to have been
pretty well worked out as it emerged towards
the surface, and there can be no question as to
the success which attended their operations
from the systematic manner in which they
were prosecuted. Numerous "trial pits" of
more or less depth are spread over the surface
to the distance of nearly half a mile, as if the
vein Lad been carefully and diligently proved
on ate surface before definite arrangements for
permanent mining had been made. Mr. Bow
en has already found some siA or seven imple
ments, all ofdifl'erent and peculiar structure,
and such no regular miners alone could'use.—
Frost the very midst of these shafts, and tow
ering from the dirt heaps themselves, ore trees
of considerable age, two of which, ACC judge,
are seventy years old. The spot was covered
with trees, some fifteen years ago.
Refusal of a Catholic Priest to be Sworn
on the Authorized Version of the
A good deal of surprise was excited yester
day in the Revision Court by the conduct of a
Roman Catholic Clergyman, who refused to be
sworn on the authorized version of the Scrip
tures. The Rev. impugnant rams forward to
sustain his right to vote as an elector for the
City of Dublin claiming a qualification by right
of occupation of a portion of the dwelling house
attached to the Chapel of Lower Exchange st.
On being handed the Testament in use in the
court the gentleman produced a cops of the
Donny Bible, on which ho desired to he sworn
alleging that the oath taken on the Protesthnt
version would not be binding on his conscience,
inasmuch as it was not a true and correct one.
The case was allowed to stand over Ibr the
present—the Assistant or Revising Barrister,
expressing his opinion that no one had a right
to urge such on objection. A case occured
recently he said, in the House of Commons, in
which the Speaker insisted on a party, who
professed dread of his own, being sworn on the
authorized version of the Scriptures. The
case has excited great attention in England, as
the same has happened in Limerick.
Hungarians for Turkey.
Some sixty Hungarian exiles have held a
meeting in New York city, and resolved that
political anirs in Europe have arrived at a crisis
where the struggle between despotism and free
dom in to he recommenced, and decided with
the sword; that they sympathize with the Tur
kish nation, whom they term their kindred in
origin, whose government is the only one
among the powers of Europe whose acts aro in
accordance with humanity and freedom, and
that, out of gratitude to that people for their
hospitality to the Hungarians three years ogo,
they deem it their duty; and feel a strong de
sire, to offer their military services in its aid.—
They appointed a committee of six, consisting
of Lieutenant Generals Mezzaros and Vetter,
Messrs. Hezman, Szerenzi and Miklosy, and
Captain Grisza, to draw up a list of those Hun
garians in the United States who are ready to
serve in the Turkish army, and to make all ne
cessary arrangements for forwarding the volun
teems to Turkey. •

The Ball in Motion.
The news from the sent of war on the. Min
ulie. is of as contradictory a character as could
well be imagined,—so far, tit least, as regards
the results of the first hostilities; but the one
important tact is plain enough, that hostilities
have actually begun, and war, therefore, pre
vails between the 'lurks and the Russians.—
There „tire still rumors of n new effort to he
made by the mediatin g Powers to reconcile
matters-4he bungling diplomatists who defea
ted their own purposes at the first undertalcing,
are !Oath to give way to the rival negotiators
who deal in minon instead of conferences, and
find more efficacy in stupid lead and iron than
in all the Notes, "pure and simple" which
have ever been written—rumors, too, that Aus
tria, having got the money she wanted at fit.
Petersburg, is confident she perceives a pncifie
solution to the difficulty—and rumors that the
Czar is quite willing to approve the new Note,
provided it be accepted by the Sultan; but ey.
ery man of sense can judge for himself what
likelihood there is of peace being so easily re
stored, now that the combatants are fairly at it
their blood up—their blood pouring—and all
the passions at last let lodge which have been
so long with so much difficulty kept under re
straint. The Turks and Russians aro alike
men; and men do not go to war, marshalling
large and well appointed armies on either side,
to make a day or two's contest of skirmishes:
It is not impossible the war may be a short
one; but it is more consonant with our knowl
edge of human nature to believe that battles
will yet have to be fought and victories lost
and won, before the quarrel can be appeased;
the anticipated shock of which has heretofore
disturbed the western governments of Europe
with alarm. The Turks have crossed the Dan
ube, and—if it bo safe to infer anything from
stories so confused and conflicting—it would
appear that two different actions, between pret
ty strong detachments; have been fought, in
one of which they were worsted, bet in the
other fully successful compelling the Russians
to fall back towards A ucharest, and that both
engagements were of a sanguinary character.
This does not look like peace, and it does not
look as if the Turks were going to be beaten
quite so'ensily and certainly as folks were, not
many weeks since, almost universally inclind
to believe. In fact, the contradictory charac
ter of the news on this important point.shows,
UR We have before noticed, that a considerable
change has taken place in the public mind of
Europe on the subject of the ability of the Ot
tomans to resist the power of the Czar. It
was at one time taken for grantld that the for.
mer would make scarcely a show of defence,
in the event of war ensuing—that they had
sunk into stub depths of feebleness and pusil
lanimity that the Russians would drive them
before them, Turkish armies and Turkish peo
ple alike, expelling them from Constantinople
and Europe in a single campaign.
There has been endoubtedly a great deal of
misconception on this point,—and as numb, or
even more, respecting the imputed strength
and invincibility of the Russians. Our own
opinions in relation to the latter have been oft.
en expressed; and so far as Turkish degenera
cy is concerned, we think that Lord Palmers
ton when lie some time back, declared in Par
liament—his words, however, not then attract
ing much attention—that the common belief
of Turkey being in an "effete and expiring"
conditon was one or the greatest delusions of
the day. "I assert," he said, "without fear of
contradiction, that Turkey, so far from having
gone back within the last thirty years, has
made greater progress and improvement in ev
ery possible way than perhaps was ever made
by .y other country during the same period."
Referring, as he did; specially to "the system
of government. as bearing upon the interests
of the people," "the administration of justice,
the condition of ngriculture, mannfactures and
commerce, religions toleration," and, last not
least. "the state of the nrmy and navy," the ex.
'inister of Foreign Affairs continued,—"l
venture to say, that in all those respects Turk
ey has made immense progress during the pc
tied I have mentioned."
We have seen, as circumstances most strik
ingly proved, that there has been no decay of
national feeling on the part of the Turkish peo
ple,—three centuries ago the • highest spirited
so Europe. It was the national enthusiasm
which in an manner compelled the Sultan to re
sort to war, and filled up his armies, do a day
as it were, with volunteers rushing to the res
cue from all parts aids extended dominions.
It was the same enthusiasm which filled his
treasury with voluntary offerings of money and
munitions of war. The spirit is there: what
reason have we to believe the Turks have lost
the other qualities which once rendered them
the best or most dreaded soldiers of the Conti
nent? They have seemed to be in a declining
rendition during the latter ageS; but it is more
likely they have merely 4tood still whilst the
Christian nations around them have been ad
vancing in civilization and the arts of war.—
The reforms commenced by the late Mahmoud,
father of Abdoul Medjid, which comprehended
all points, religion alone excepted, in which
the Osmanlees were inferior to the neighbor
ing races, were especially aimed to restore
strength and efficiency to the army. Military
critics, better authorities doubtless in this mat
ter than Lord Palmerston, tell us that these
reforms have had their natural effect, and that
the Turkish troops, well disciplined, well offi
cored, and commanded by generals thorough
ly acquainted with tactical science, arc not in
ferior to the forces of the civilized States around
them. If this be so, there is ndthing in which
the Russian soldiers can claim to be their su
periors; and, in forming an opinion as to the
result of the conflict, supposing it should not
be speedily brought to a close by the efforts of
the Mediators, we should remember that the
Russians.have not yet succeeded in subduing
the Cireassians,—and that the Arabia, indeed,
brings us intelligence of still another victory
won bythese half-barbarian but valiant moun
taineers over their Muscovitish invaders.
In short, the Turks are perhaps not so
matched against the Ilusshms as was once
thought. They are poorer in money, not in
men. The Sultan can bring larger forces in
to the field, if he can maintain them there, than
Nicholas can spare to send against him; and
he has all the advantage in his cause and in
the theatre of war. Infidels as they are, a rob
ber race encamped in the seats of ancient
Greek and Christian civilization, and usurpers
of the Holy Places, the Turks happen in this
quarrel to have right on their side ; and the
camp they occupy is also their home and their
