WANTED, A few loads of WOOD at the Journal Office. Itia. See new Advertisenelents. ger We have received a beautiful 8 vo. book, got np in the most fashionable style of binding, containing over four hundred pages, called Periscopics; or, Current subjects extemporane ously treated. By Wm. Elder. New York: J. C. Derby, 8 Park Place. Dos ton: Philips, Sampson A: Co. Cincinnati: H. W. Derby. This volume is a collection of extemporized articles, written during the last seven years, just as the occasions arose. Of the first division, entitled" Characters and Tales," they are not in any respect or degree, inventions. They have the form of fiction, but, they are the very truth of fact. "The Duel," and the story of the Dead Box er. (which has since appeared ir. Blackwood's Magazine,) the author takes no responsibility for its narrative truth, for he has taken such liberties us answered his purposes. It is the only piece of fancy work that he ever made up. With respect to the omnibus load of miscel laneous articles, labelled Slashy,Fancy,Politico• economical, and Religions, the author says it was written with all loyalty of heart and mind. The•author has had some perplexity of mind as to what the book should be called, bat has finally agreed to call it "Periscopies." Web ate defines the word thus "Periscopic, a view lag on all sides; a term applied to spectacles having concavo convex glasses, for the purpose of increasing the distinctness of objects viewed obliquely." I We have received Graham's Monthly Magazine for September, it is prefaced with a beautiful Steel Engraving of" Lafayette's inter view with Louis 16 and Marie Antoinette; Pre- vious to his departure forkmerica." It has the latest style of fashions for September, as well as a large portion of choice literature. kr We have just received a most excellent number of the Pennsylvania Farm Journal, for the month of September. It contains a great variety of matter which certainly will be inter. eating and useful to the fernier. Every Far. mer should subscribe fur the Journal, it is only one doNar per annum, and this one number alone, would amply pay fur one year. The Groat Drought. Every mail brings intelligence of the extent of the great drought which is afflicting the court. try, and is much greater than is generally sup. posed. For more than a mouth past the sun has been pouring down his scorching rays up on the parched and heated earth without any obstruction. No kindly cloud arises to miti gate the intensity of the fierce rays, or water the famishing vegetation. On Thursday even ing of last week, the hearts of the people were lighted up with joy as the heavens clouded over with some appearance of rain, but alas! it did not rain enough to lay the duet. Vegetation is nearly destroyed. lha.. The "AiagelGaNel," was convicted at Boston on Tuesday, of disturbing the peace, aod fined $7.0 and costs. Eie was required, al so to give ball is 8300 for his good behaviour for Nix ralutbe. An Independent Ticket. ruder this caption may be found an editorial in the last week's Globe, from which we are to infer, that the Whig party of Huntingdon county is about making its lut death-straggle, that this same old Whig phalanx, which has so long and so nobly battled for truth and justice, is about to surrender the field, unconditionally, without even a broken lance, as an evidence of the encounter. The cry of dissatisfaction has been raised too often, by that same organ, to create any alarm. It comes from the wrong quarter. But heat what Mr. Globe says:—"lt is not to be denied that the present ticket, made as it was through management and chicanery of a mere faction of the Whig party, fails to meet the approval of a very large proportion of that party, as well as nearly the whole body of the Democratic party." Astonishing fact, this, that Whig nominations fail to meet the approval of the Democratic party. When, Mr. Globe, has a Whig nomination met the appro val of the Democratic party? Was it in 1840, when Harrison was nominated by the Whig party? No, you called him a granny. a peal,- coat General. Was it in 1844, when the illus. trim Clay was the candidate of the Whig party? No, you calledhim a gambler, a black leg, &c. Was it in 1848, when the honest and brave old Taylor was our candidate? No, you called it a nomination not fit to be made.— Was it in 1852, when the immortal Scott, the hero of a hundred battles, the history of whose life comprises some of the brightest pages of our country's history, and to whose eminent public services we, as a grateful people, owed the highest honors in our power to bestow.— Yet you called him a vain old coxcomb, (you said, dress him up in high boots and military spurs and ho would strut himself to death,) and as a foul expression of your utter contempt for Whig nominations, you nominated a Franklin Pierce. Hence, Mr. Globe, it is vain for the Whig party to please you in their nominations. But hear Mr. Globe againl—"We know that the Democratic party will, with alacrity and earnestness, assist in this wholesome reform." , What wholesome reform, Mr. Globe, has the party to which you belong been guilty of? You have reformed and reformed the finances of our State until we are now burthened with a debt of over forty millions, and by way of a small compliment to the farmer, whose burthens are already grievous to be borne, you added six millions more, by an act of last session, to the already enormous State debt. You reform ed the act of last session for the Sale of thi Public Works, as forever to deter capitalists from investing their money therein, thus ova ding the wishes of the people expressed at the ballot box a number of years ago, by an over whelming majority. You will, knowing you dare not openly avow your opposition to a measure thus so emphatically demanded by your peers, so reform the Prohibitory Liquor Bill, as to scarcely give a shadow for the sub stance, and by so doing you postponed at least one year, if not more, a Prohibitory Law, and thus gave the demos another year's reign, and to consign another thirty thousand as victims to a drunkard's grave. All these great reforms you can proudly boast of, and I have no doubt when you raise the standard of reform at your mast-head it will cause a tumult in the camp of Israel. But we think these are reforms the people have not asked you for, and will not sustain you in, as the next election will most certainly demon strate. We, as a Whig. prefer rather to stick to the old land mark of the party, and vote for,'Whig principles and Whig measures, than to., coun tenance such reformers as these, and by so do ing we still support those good old conservative principles that has always supported the ship of State and guided her in her proper course. But the editor says, "This ticket was made up by a mere faction of the Whig party." This, certainly, is not very complimentary to that larger portion of the Whig party who you call dissatisfied., and who you are now evidently courting the favor of—who you wish to assist you in carrying out your great work of reform. But, on the contrary, there is no dissatisfac tion in the Whig ranks. The last Whig Couu• ty Convention was composed of as honest and intelligent men as ever met in County Conven tins—men who was capable of knowing the wishes of the people, and men who had the honesty and courage to act as men. Then the expression of the majority of these delegates is a fair expression of the will of a majority of the party, and as such will be sustained by the party, notwithstanding the cry of dissatisfaction. It cannot he expected that any candidate can be nominated unanimously, when there is several candidates in the field for the same office, but it is expected that every candidate who suffers his name to be brought before the Convention for a nomination, will support the ticket when nominated. This is evident to ev ery one, for he, by suffering his name to be used in Convention for a nomination, expects, if successful, to receive the support of the party, and is bound, in honor, to support the ticket formed, and when the second Tuesday of Oc tober arrives, you will find every good Whig at his post. Congressional Nomination. Our Candidate for Congress, Col. John R. Edie of Somerset County. is a sterling Whig,of pure republican manners, and in every way worthy the confidence of the party that put him in nomination. He has represented his county in the State Legislature with ability, and has always proved to be a strict party man, and un flinching in his support of whip men, and men sures. Tho Col. is a good "talker," and ever ready to give his opinions to his tellow•citizens from the stump, and will, when elected to Con greet, be able to take “tt hand" with the de bates of that body, and do honor both to him self and his constituents. Although Dr. John McCulloch, our present worthy remesentative, was the unanimous choice of the Whigs of this county, and, as a matter of course, would have been pleased at his re-nomination ; but, as the Conference has thought otherwise, and put in nomination the choice of another county of the District, we feel no hesitancy in pledging the full Whig vote of this county to Col. Edie, us the nominee. We hope the Colonel will visit the "Ancient Va. lege," as well as other portions of Huntingdon County, during the Campaign. THE CUBA QI7ESTION.--The Paris Patrie, in giving a statement that the son of Mr. Soule had arrived at London on his way to Madrid, with an offer from the United States to put , chase Cuba, intimates that the Government of Spain will have to consult England and Franco before a bargain can be consummated. I. The Editor not yut fit for duty . A Caution to Whigs. A few of the wire-working Locofbcos of this borough, aided by some of their coadjutors from the country, feeling well satisfied of the inability, of the rapidly decaying Democratic: partyof thiscoutity,to elect a ticket of their own at the coming election, have concocted a scheme by which they think to decoy a portion of the Whig party into their support, by nominating "an independent ticket," composed of members of both parties. This scheme, plausible as it may appear at first eight, was laid fur the ex press purpose of creating dissension in the Whig party of this county, and with a view of appropriating the fruits to the benefit of the unierrffied. But, notwithstanding the uuseru• pulons exertions made by some of the leading Locofocos, to enlist the eo•operation of Whigs, we are happy to be able to state, that their de. sign is well understood by the great bodyof the Whig party, and that it meets with little favor from the honest yeomanry of the country, who are well satisfied with the nominees of the late County Convention. The nominations made by the Convention, were in accordance with the usages of the par. ty; and the men selected were emphatically the choice of the people, or their representatives; and, as candidates honestly nominated, they are entitled to the confidence and support of the party. It may be true that there are some dis satisfied Whigs, who would desire to see the ticket defeated—as such are to found in all parties—but we are fully assured. from the va rious districts, that the Whig partyof this coun ty, was never more united than at present, and that the ticket will receive the full party vote. We were sorry to see the names of Whigs, who were pledged to abide the decision of the late Convention, connected with this movement, and as their friend, would caution them to be ware of the net cast by Locofoco wire.workers, for their sole object is to distract the Whig par ty, and thereby build up their own. Therefore, we would caution the Whigs of our county to beware of this movement, and in stead of lending themselves as instruments for the aggrandizement of the Locofoco party, we would suggest the propriety of organizing in every township, with a determination to sup port the whole ticket, and nothing but the tick et, and our word for it, you will have nothing to regret when it is too late. Adhere to the usages of the party, and all will be right. CHESTER COIISTY.—The Whig Nominating Convention of Chester county met yesterday at West Chester, and made the following nomina tions, viz:—John H. Broomal. for Congress; Henry S. Evans, Senate; H. A. Hodgson, W. It. Downing, and Isaac Pennypacker, for As sembly. DELAWARE COUNTY.—The Delegates repre• senting the Whigs of the different townships in the county, met on the 24th ult., and organized the following ticket:—For Congress, John M. Broome]; Senate, James S. Lewis; Assembly, Thomas H. Maddock. CUMBERLAND COUNTY.—The Whig Conven tion of this county has placed in nomination the following ticketi—Aseembly---,,Lntgom ery Donaldson and Geo. NV. Cresswell. litmus COUNTY NOMINATIONS.—The dele gates met at the Court House, in Harrisburg on the 29th ult., and nominated John C. Run kle for Congress; Samuel Landis and Lot Berg stresser, for Assembly. SCH UYLK ILL Cou.vr.—The Whigs of Schuyl kill county have nominated John B. M'Creary, Esq., for Legislature. Mr M'Creary hails from the "Young Guard," having received his polit ical education among the gallant Whigs of the York Springs district. He will make a capital member. see Rev. 0. A Bronson, the famous editor of the Boston Catholic Review, has accepted the professorship extended to him by the Irish University at Dublin. He is at present preps• ring his first course of lectures. The salary is about $3,000. His "Review" will be continued. Who isitanin, New Party? We want a new party! In Heaven's name, what do we want it for? Tell me of a Whig of Massachusetts—a Whig of New England—a Whig of the North—that goes for Nebraska. Are not the Whigs all right? Tell me of one, even, who skulked under a suspension of the rules to give other folks a chance to do it.— [Laughter and applause.] No, sir! The Ne• braska measure is an Administration measure, and I hold Franklin Pierce and his Admir.is• tmtion to it. They did it. [Laughter.] It is not tree that the South did it; nor could they have done it. It was the North—not the North— it was the Democracy of the North. [Applause.] And who is to resist them? The Whig party— the only party who has ever done so—or are we to undertake to denationalize ourselves, to sink ourselves into a sectional party, and then stand against them? Not for a moment can we do it. The above is taken from the speech of Hon. Otis P. Lord at the Massachusetts Whig State Convention,, and applies, says the Daily News, with the same force and the same truth to the Whig party of Pennsylvania. It is in the true spirit of a true Whig, and commends itself to the consideration of every one who believes the interests of the country to be identified with the success of the Whig principles. We need no new party to put the seal of condemnation upon the Pierce Administration for its Nebras ka iniquity. We need no new political organ- ,ttion to secure the improvement of our Riv ers and Harbors. We need not abandon the Whig party to insure full and adequate protec tion to Home Labor. We need no fusion of Whies and Free Soilera to maintain the cause of Human Freedom. The Whig party now is, and ever has been, right on all these subjects, and to its care they may be safely entrusted.— Had it been aided in 1832 by the impractica ble anti-slavery men who are now so clamor ous for elusion, the Nebraska iniquity would have never been perpetrated. Had they uni ted with the Whigs in 184.1 to elect the Patriot Clay, there would have followed no such en croachments upon the Constitution, and no such extension of slavery as they by their course in that contest, enabled Loco Focoisrn to perpetuate. In short, if we are to have a new party of one idea, and that a sectional one, let it be so; but let not the Whig party bo surrendered to or swallowed up in it. Tae KNOW NOTIIINGS.—We find published . in some of the papers, among which is the Ar gus of this city, a long pretended expose of this order. It wears falsehood on its face ; for, if any man had taken the oaths set forth.and then revealed them, he is not to be believed, and no man of sense would believe him. We are as. cured by those who know, that they are false. and unworthy of thought.— Wheeling Times. //18..Mademoiselle Cecily made her fortieth ascent in o balloon a Peri; lately. Letter from Hon. David Wilmot• The letter of Judge Wilmot to the Dartford meeting, so long suppressed by Gov. Bigler's Northern organ, the Montrose Destocivri, edit ed by ex-speaker Chase, has nt lust appeared in the columns of that consistent sheet. No one who reads it can fail to understand Judge Wilmot's position on the Nebraska question.— Although a Democrat, ho "repels with scorn the insolent inundate of the administration, re- Oiling adhesion to its measures as a test of Democratic orthodoxy." The Congressional district in which he resides gave near twenty five hundred majority for President Pierce.— Mr. Wilmot says, "I trust the future will show how grossly he (Pierce) has outraged the prin ciples of its intelligent and independent voters. Slavery demands entire submission to its poli cy, as a condition of its support; let candidates henceforth learn, that here, at least, in Penn. sylvania, if nowhere else within the State, we require of them guaranties of fidelity to the principles and rights of freedom." Mr. Wil mot takes the ground that a candidate who pretends to condemn the Nebraska bill, and yet holds himself in alliance with the National Administration, "cannot be trusted, and so sure as he is trusted, so sure will the people and their rights be again betrayed." Thin is just the position of Gov. Bigler; in certain quarters he pretends to condemn the Nebraska bill, and yet holds himself in alliance with the National Administration, while his "organs" at the State Capitol and elsewhere eulogize Doug lactnd advocate adhesion to the Nebraska meas. ere as the only test Democratic of orthodoxy. Of course, then, to trust Governor Bigler is to be again betrayed. Mr. Wilmot further declares that the man who will not openly resist the aggreesione of Slavery, to-day, cannot be relied on for the fu ture—he is hopelessly rotten—unsound to the core, and will sacrifice his country's highest in tomtit and glory for mere paltry partizan con siderations. This is a hard fling at the miser able double-dealing of Gov. Bigler, by which he seeks to gain the free soil vote by private letters and assurances, whilst he is openly pledg ed to the Nebraska iniquity, and in close alli ance with those who consummated it. Mr. Wil. mot says that the National Administration must be rebuked, and the only effectual way to do it, is to "strike down its allies in every State, district and county." The letter is ably written, and every sentence contains a wither ing re buke and condemnation of the course of Governor Bigler and his Northern "organ," cd• ited by ex.speaker Chase. Not having Too m for the letter in extenso, we subjoin the follow. ing extract: _ _ "The power and design of slavery must be checked, and the original policy of Government on this subject restored. To this end we must lay aside—postpone for a time, the strifes of party over minor points of controverted policy, and unite in the great work of preserving our free Institutions from impending destruction. The first blow must be aimed for the overthrow of the present .National Administration—the mere tool and puppet of the Slave Power.— Through the corrupting influence of its patron. age upon the People's Representatives, Free. dons has been betrayed. It must be overwhelm. ed at every point with ignominious defeat. We cannot shorten its Constitutional term of office, but we must strike down its allies in every Slate, District and County. It must have no prop in the States, upon which to lean for sup port of its iniquitous policy. Nis man should be elected to responsible tyftee—Governor. Mem ber of Congress, Representative,whose relations of friendship and alliance with the National Administration are open to suspicion. We must accept of nothing, in the candidates pre nested for our Buffs-ages, short of undisguised hostility to the ultra pro-slavery , power at Wash ington. Anything short of this is folly, idle trifling, shilly-shally nonsense; and designed in the end, to lead the people step by step into acquiescence in the policy and plans of slavery. Let no candidate pretend to condemn the re. cent legislation of Congress, and yet hold him. self in party alliance with the present adminis tmtion. He cannot be trusted; and so sure as he is trusted, so sure will the people, and Ihier rights be again betrayed. The man who will not face in open, manly resistance, the aggres sions of the slave power to-day, cannot be re lied upon to do so on the occasion of a future provocation. He is hopelessly rotten—unsound 'to the core, and will eacriAce his Country's highest interest and glory. for mere paltry par tizan considerations."—Harrisburg Telegraph. Things to Remember. Free Democrats, remember, than Gov. Big ler advocated and signed a Bill granting the use of our Prisons, for the confinement of fugi tive slaves ; that he recommended an act per mitting masters to carry their slaves through Pennsylvania; that he had pardoned Alberti the notorious kidnapper ; that his official Journals in Philadelphia and Harrisburg are strongly in favor of the Nebraska-Kansas infamy ; and that he has repeatedly said to lending Demo crats in Harrisburg, that be approves of the principles of that measure. Nebraska Democrats, remember that on the day of his re-nomination, Speaker Chase heard Gov. Bigler say, "Gentlemen, if the Democrat ic convention pass resolutions in favor of the Nebraska Bill, it must nominate another can didate, for I will not endorse and run on such a platform." Regular Democrats, remember, that when a Senator, Governor Bigler voted against the candidates nominated by the Democratic cau cus, for State Treasurer and State Printer ; and that he appointed James Campbell attor ney General, alter his rejection by the De rime racy of Pennsylvania. He therefore has no right to Democratic votes. . . _ - Antilmage Dentocrts, remember that Gov. Bigler was the means of placing James Camp. bell at the head of the Post Office department; that he has appointed several of the same faith to important of ; and that he or his particular friends have selected Catholics to preside over all the Democratic State Courts. time, since he was elected Governor. Prohibitory Democrats, remember that the two or three hundred thousand petitioners who have yearly importuned the Legislature for a Prohibitory law, have never been noticed in Governor Bigler's annual message; that he re• tains the Lager Beer bill in his pocket; that he will not promise to sign a law the exact provi• lions of which ho has not seen; and that hislet• ter to the Prohibitory State convention was not satisfactory. nmpayers, remember, that the expenses of the Commonwealth during the second year of Governor Bigler's administration, nearly doub. led those of the last year of Governor John. ston's term.—Harrisburg Telegraph. CAPT. Hoi.i.ixs,—The Washington Star of Tuesday last contained the following paragraph: "The official acts of Captain Hollins, of the Cayne, at the bombardment of Greytown, we have good authority for saving, have very pro. perly received the approval of Government,who will shield him front all ridiculous suits, such as that just brought against him in N. York." This, of course, will put an end to the prose. cation of the eornmander of the Coyne; but it is evident from the fart of the institution of this suit that the persons whose property was des. strayed at Greytown will give the Government very serious trouble by their drains for damag es. In the case of the American claimants there can be but litttle doubt that they will eventually secure their pay by Congressional appropriations, and the longer this is delayed the more interest will the government have to incur in the end. This is well established by the history of private claims paid in postyears, and there seems to be none which by routine. city may not be secured. Where the damages claimed are large, the cam never fails to enlist the support of the ablest men in Congress.-- This reytown exploit will cost us a pretty sum in the end.—Aorth American. -- KNOW NOTRINOR TO BE DECAPITATED.— Washington, Aug. 31.—1 t is reliably ascertain• ed that several "Know Nothing" clerks aro to bc dismissed front the City Post Office tomor row, at the request of the Democracy. $ Piti,burgil has 38 Iron Foundries. The Democracy of Sullivan for Pollock. The Sullivan Donaerat of the I lit h ult., con tains the prieerilings of n Democratic Mass Meeting at Forks of Lolnl•Sock, in Sullivan county, at which Henry F.. Shippen, Esq., pre sided, and was assisted by is number of Vice Presidents and Secretaries. The meeting was addressed by the Hon. David Wilmot, of whose speech n glowing amount is given; after which T. J. Ingham submitted a preamble and set of resolutions, which were unanimously adopted, and among which were the following: Resolved, That the first work before us is to secure for Kansas and Nebraska the inaliena ble right of liberty to all by an act of CongresS prohibiting slavery is those territories; and we will therefore, go to work, like practical ye tors, to elect honest, competent men, who are known to be in favor of this measure, to all of= flees of responsibility and influence, Resolved, That we have no reason to believe that Gov. Bigler agrees with no in any point connected with the questions of Slavery now agitated; we know he recommended the passage of a law allowing slave holders to carry their slaves through this State; we know he endorses the Fugitive Slave Law, which tramples upon our personal rights; we know his election would be regarded in every part of the Union as a triumph of the allies of slavery, and as those who are notfbr no, in this matter, are emphat ically against vs, we declare Gov. Bigler un worthy of our support. Resolved, That inasmuch as Judge Pollock has declared explicitly he is in favor of re-en acting the law which prohibited slavery in ter ritories north of 36° and 30' north latitude; al. so in favor of the manumission of any slaves illegally held there, he occupies a position so much more just and liberal than Gov. Bigler, that (without endorsing the cautious address of the Whig Central Committe) we esteem it our duty to give Judge Pollock our full and active support in the coming election. Inoculation for Cholera. Inoculation with .Caustic Issues," now crea ting so much excitement and wonder among the medical Ravens of Europe and the United States, from the simplicity of its character, was not discovered by a distinguished Berlin physi cian, but py an American physician,well known in this country. It was sent by him to the leading minds of this country and Europe, as far back ns 1847, and is gradually being tried as a successful and practical experiment since then. It is now seeking its way into the Prus sian and Russian armies, and ere long will no doubt be introduced into Austria, France and England. It will extend itself with electrical effect over the world as the opposite of vaccin ation, entirely neutralizing another pestilence. It is noticed by physicians as a singular fact, that small-pox precedes and succeeds this Mi. attic cholera. Tee late Russian Minister, 80. disco, introduced it to the attention of the Em. peror of Russia, a year prior to his demise. As n successful experiment, it is now showing itself in practical illustrations of its preventive power, in isolated instances over this country, and will, no doubt, hereafter become a fixed fact. This simple process will, when intrude. ced, be the means of saving large sums to Eu ropean governments, together with the lives of their soldiers. Tho discoverer receives as a re. ward, so noticed by European presses, Diplo mas from each of the Universities,togetherwith jewels taken from the crown of each monarch. The prizes through all Europe, offered since 1819, for an "absolute and reliable preventive"' of this pestilence, and that have been accumm latingsince 1819,amount to the sum 0f£148,000. The first prizes are to be awarded by Napo leon 111, subject to the decision of the Royal Academy of - Medicine, Paris.--211b. Atlas. PALLING OF A BRIDGE—THIRTY PERPONS PRECIPITATED INTO THE STREAM.—Yesterday morning, about 30 persons left the Nail Facto ry in one of Mr. Grange's large wagons, for the purpose of spending the day in berrying.— The company was composed of young and middle•aged persons, and went on their way full of joy an d until they reached the bridge over the Puestenkill and !Intim L'innt: Road. While crossing the bridge, one side of it gave away, precipitatink the whole party, wagon, horses, and people, from a height of ten feet into the creek below. The following persons were injured: James Peabody, thigh broken in two places; Mrs. Daniel Cramer, bad ly elt about the head and face; Mrs. Brown and Miss Warr, hurt about the face. As many as twenty of the party were more or less inju red. Several ladies were greatly in danger of being drowned. All the people residing con venient to the disaster assisted in mitigating the sufferings of the injured. It is almost mi raculous that the accident was nut attended with still more calamitous results.—Troy Times. SINGULAR Occentuace.-1 singular occur rence, resulting iu a melancholy manner, took place, a few days since, in the town of Ham burg, in this county. An Irishman was engag ed in digging a well, and, allot. getting down to the depth of some eighteen feet, found signs of water very preceptible. At last he struck his pick through a thin layer of slate, when all at once, and with a noise like thunder, tut& ciently loud to be distinctly heard all over the neighborhood, a stream of mingled gas endive. ter burst through the orifice, instantly killing the unfortunate man, and filling the well totho depth of ten or twelve feet with water. Gas still escapes profusely, and the water is in con stant and violent motion, resembling a large cauldron of boiling fluid.—Bajr. Dem., 24 nit. JUDGE SMYSER.—We have seyerartimes had the pleasure of referring to complimentary no tices of the judicial administration, of our late fellow citizen, Ron. D. M. Stnyser, President Judge of the Berl. and Montomery district, and the Whig nominee for the' Supreme Bench. Recently he held a special court in Berko Co., and the'Reading papers speak quite flattering. ly of his qualifications as a Judge. The Berks county Press (Democratic) says: "He possesses a happy mode of delivery--speaks with perfect ease and freedom, and has shown that he is an accomplished scholar and a profound jurist." lOWA ELM lON.—In the first Congressional district there appears to be some doubt respect. ing the election of Clark, Whig, as it is alleged that the extreme western end of the districthas given some strong Democratic majorities. Still the Whig papers assert that Clark is elected, and it seems very likely that he is. We may remark en pawn/Ad he is the brother of the popular authoress known by the nom Jr phone of Grace Greenwood. The result of this lowa contest, so far as we can perceive, is purely an earnest and emphatic protest against the repeal of the Missouri Compromise. Everything hing. ed upon that measure, and it so completly oblit erated party lines,that it is difficult to distinguish Whigs front Democrats.—Nerth American. COULDN'T SWALLOW IT.--It is said that the Richmond Examiner, the South Side Demo crat, the Alexandria Sentinel, Staunton Vieli calor, Abingdon Democrat, Winchester Virgin ian, and Danville Republican; all good Locofo. co papers, opposed to the Hunter "Land grad uation bill," upon the ground that it is a semi. fie° of Democratic principles and a violation of the constitution. It is wonderful how the "Doctors' disagree? Mr. Hunter.

Notwithstanding that the Union and its echoes haVe made themselves hoarse with sp• plauding the destruction of San Juan as alto• ether justifiable, necessary and democratic, it is announced that Mr. Fattens, the late coin ma cial agent, has been ordered to return thither, and make a correct report of the damages sus. %Inc(' by the bombardment, in onler that an exact statement of the matter may be laid be. fore Congress. This is it fair and honorable course. The act has been assumed by the ad • ministration as one of state necessity, and tho national treasury should, of course, hear the burthen of it. The amount to be finally paid will not, probably. fall below two or three mill ions of dollars. The number of buildings do. stroyed were about 150. A few of them were costly hotels and warehouses, but much the tar. ger number were primitive bamboo shanties, which may bo re•ereeted with as little trouble as Hollins experienced in knocked them down. The principal damage was in the amount of foreign merchandize destroyed. The Greytown spoliation bill will be the leading measure of the next session. _ . . Mr. Buchanan appears to be floundering in the depths of the Central American question. He is the most inappropriate man whom inap propriate man whom this Government could have selected to conduct the negotiation. He cannot, in 1854, deny everything which he of tidally admitted in 1847 and 1848, and he then admitted all that the British claimed. But nothing but the most perseverin,g mismanage ment of the controversy at WAshington, or through our minister in London, Tan make the question a very . serious one. Great Britain has no interests in that quarter which materi ally conflict with our own-, and as to coloniza tion, her ministers have long since admitted that they had more colonies than they could conveniently manage. It is a part of the same report which sends Fakes, back to Greytown, that Capt. Hollins is under orders for those waters, to meet the venerable Lieut. Jolly and his associates in command. He will find there, if the published accounts are correct, a foeman worthy of his steel, and a squadron carrying a weight of met al equal to that of the Cyane. The lobby men are making themselves mer ry over the published report of the committee on the Colt patent case. The evidence is aim dantly amusing, but not important. Thestrength of the lobby appears to have increased in a less rapid ratio than the exigencies of the pro fession. Charming ladies, with great conver sational powers, fine teeth, and ravishing eyes, have been added to the old agencies of wines, elegant dinners, cigars, s:e.,previonslyin vogue. Witnesses testify that, in their opinion, $70,- 000 had been or were to be expended to pro mote the passage of Colt's bill. A parlor and adjoining rooms were kept at the National Ho tel for the entertainment of his friends, by Mr. Dickerson, the agent of Colt. The Committee made desperate but'fruitless efforts to procure accurate lists of Mr. D.'s guests. Ho denied their right to inquire into the mode in which he chose to dispense his private hospitality.— Col. Clemens, etc-Senator from Alabama, was his most prominent colleaugue. The Colonel attended to tlio military part of their joint du ties, and distributed the pistols among mem bers and others. Mr. Dickerson confined his attention to the gastronomics, and saw that his guests were plied with good cheer. The testimony of Dickerson and H. H. Day, of New York, is very interesting. Dickerson says that Day came to him lust year, and told him that for $lO,OOO in hand, for his own use, and $15,000 for distribution among the letter writers, he could pass Colt's bill, or rather would withdraw all opposition to its passage. Day told Dickerson that a great mistake had been made in not feting the Washington correspon dents earlier, but he thought he could manage them by paying to the principal writers $2,000 a piece. Dickerson thought he should have to pay them something. and was not averse to compounding with Day, but was shocked at the Hui' named. The princi ple was, he seemed to think, not so .monstrous as a s greenhorn might assume. Mr. Day not being able to sell, continued his opposition, and, as Dickerson asserts, took off a number of the correspondents, and gave him and Col. Colt a great deal of trouble. But it does not appear that any of them got any money. One witness testified that Mr. Clingman, who "got up" the investigation, was currently repor ted to have received a very large amount of stock, over $lO,OOO worth, for voting for the Minnesota railroad bill. Another one, Dicker son, I believe, insinuated that he had been in duced by the blandishments of two lady lobby men in the gallery of the House not to vote against, but actually to vote for the Wisconsin railroad land grant. Clingman attempts toes plain the last Charge ' admitting that he voted as the ladies wanted him to vote, but denying that he was influenced by their requests. He does not, however, allude to his vote in favor of the Minnesota land grant, and the reasons given in behalf of his course on the Wisconsin bill should have induced him to vote against the Minnesota donation. It is unfortunate, too, for Mr. Clingman that, beside Mr. Dean, he is the only member who is shown to have attend. ed all the dinners and suppers at the Colt hos telry. Mr. Thompson, of Michigan, admitted that he miss agent for Colt; he had engaged others, on what terms he would not say. Ho wasagent for Collins' steamrs, for several patents for the Pacific railroad, the Wisconsin, Minnesota,and lowa railroad land bills. He was against the Nebraska bill. He, like all the rest of Colt's agents, refused to state what they were to re ceive for their services, on the plea that that Was a matter belonging to their private affairs. Mr. Dickerson testifies that a person had ap plied to him for a loan of three hundred dollars on behalf of Mr. Henn, member from lowa,and that he had refused to make the advance. Mr. Henn deposed that he had not authorized the application, and knew nothing about it. The repott is rather complimentary and hon. °ruble to Congress. It does not present a single case of corruption, nor so much as the impro priety in any member. The evidence taken is for more discreditable to Clingman, the accuser, than to any other member. Tho allegations against him hardly term and give color to sus picion, but it is of the same character as thaton which he did not scruple to bring a charge af fecting the integrity and honor of the whole House. If he has suffered in the inquiry, the retribution is well deserved. The moral of the lesson is, that random defamation is a game at which any number of persons can play, and in which the beginner must generally be loser. The President, is said by some, to have gone to Berkely Springs, by others, to Old Point.— There is as much mystery in his movement as about those of Louis Napoleon and Judge Douglas, both of which dignitaries modestly shun public observaiion. At Berkely Springs were assembled, previously to the departure of the President from the White House, the See. retary of State, Senator Mason, Chairman ofthe Committee of Foreign Affairs, Senator Pratt,of Md., and many other Southern politicians.— These distinguished official persons will make a suitable auxiliary Cohan junta, the delibera tions of which may assist the present society iu the annexation of the island, and supply the defects of Mr. Soule's diplomacy. ALEXIS. SKELETON FOUND 10 A TRUNK.—A trunk con taining old books, portions of two frames of a human, and a sign on which was the name of Dr. J.

The Governor oi end°, armed the citizens, and took a number of the rioters prisoners. Numerous reports were current in Madrid respecting the intentions of' France.
