We are informed by same of our intelli

is presumed that they will be as numerous
as last year. In some portions of our

thick, and should they increase much more
rapidly, We will be in the condition of the

will start, and we do hope, that after the

have room for a fox editorial remarks.
l'ianori, the person why attempted to as
sassinate the French Emperor, les been
condemned 40 death. In relation to the
peace prospects, the English press has but
little hope of the conclusion of a satisfac
tory peace ; all hopes appear to have fled;
no asshtonce is expected from Austria, and
very little from the remainder of Europe;
the truth is, England and France having
got themselves into this 'snap,' will have to
light it out themselves. The English pa
pers appear to think that Russia does not
want peace. _
Vie latest advices front the seat of war,
state that the Russians had made a sortie
with a large body of troops. on the allies'
right advance trench, but were driven
back. The proposed scheme of raising a
Turkish contingent, to be commanded by
English officers, has proven a failure.
A very extraordinary circumstance is
related by the English papers ; it is to the
effect that a fine American frigate built ship
recently arrived at a port its the Baltic. It
was stated that the vessel had on board 800
bales cotton, but the English correspondent
viiited the ship, and found that in addition
to the above, she hnd fifty thousand rifles,
and five thousand revolvers. The Rus
clans laugh at our cruisers, says he, and na
turally ask if John Bull has been asleep
to have allowed so valuable a prize to have
escaped. The Mtf.ssrs. C-, Mer
chants of Boston, were passengers, and is
supposed acted as supercargoes. We have
not been able to ascertain if the vessel left
America this season, and has cut her way
through the ice before our flying squadron
could come up with her, or if she reached
one of the lower ports of the Baltic last
year, and lay quiet till Spring. •
A Russian note in the form of a circular

The Dedication of the Lutheran Church,
recently erected in this borough, took place
last Sabbath. The dedicatory sermon was
preached by Rev. Baker, of Altoona, and
we are free,to confess, that the reverend
gentleman in his admirable discourse, dis•
played talents of no ordinary kind. We
4ye seldom listened to a clearer, or more
comprehensive sermon than the one deliv
ered by Mr. Baker on Saturday evening.
In the particular of the right manner of
preaching, we think many of our minis
ters commit an almost unpardonable blun
der, and which, we can find nothing to pal
liate. We allude to the fact, that many of
the :cloisters of the Closple of Jesus Christ,
in these later days, preach, only to be art •
planded by their fellow-tnen,' and hence,

ing too many common-place or high•flown
terms, or accomodating the Scripture to
suit the opinions of wealthy - pew.renters,
or worldly church contributors, is not only
ridiculous, but absolutely sinful. The
reason why we admired Rev. Ilaker's dis
course of last Saturday evening, was, be
: cause it was simple and concise ; because
it came up to our idea of the apostolic
creel, "Christ, and him crucified."
An amount sufficient to liquidate the

A rather strange occurrence took place
a short time ago, in one Gf the northern
townships of our county. We era infor
med by a friend living in the neighborhood,
that for some length of time, the wife of a
highly respectable farmer, (whose name
we do not see proper to make public,) had
been deranged ; so bad, indeed, that it re
quired a constant watch over her to prevent
her injuring herself. In some of the more
lucid intervals of her madness, she declar
ed it as her intention to destroy herself,
and end her misery. About a week ago,
the person whose carp it was to attend her,
having occasion to leave the room where
she was confined, on returning found she
I had disappeared. Search was instantly
made, and she was found lying by the door
of the kitchen, insensible. It appears the
trap door on the roof was open, and she
had managed to ascend to it by placing
boxes, &c., under it, and had flung herself
from the roof to the ground, a distance of
some thirty feet. The most remarkable
part of the affair is, that beyond a few brui
ses, she was safe and sound. Since this
occurrence, strange to tell, her reasoning
faculties have been partially restored, and
it is confidently believed, that reason will
again resume her power. We cannot but
believe, that this is another instance of tho
good providence of the great I Am.
Expenoes of Uncle Sam,
It will be seen by the following table that
Uncle Sam has either become a very ex
travagant old gentleman, or has some ras
cally servants. It will no doubt be recol
lected what a hubaboo was raised, during
the administration of old John Adams, on
account of the expenses of Government
having reached the-enormous sum of near
twelve million dollars. Now what has the
Locofoco Press to say to the fact, that the
expenses of our Government for the year,
will overrun seventy-five million dollars.
Tho following is the amount of appro
priations, made during the late session of
Congress. Fourteen and a half millions
of dollars are appropriated to the Post Of
fice Department and the Ocean mail ser

This vast spm of C 1,574,4,57 is only the
amount of specified appropriations. Tile
great mass of contingent objects of expen
diture, of which the sums were unascer
tained and could not be spec.fied, may
swell the grand totcl of-the expenses of the
year to perhaps seventy-five millions of
dollars. Although the Government ex•
penses must necessarily increase•with the
growth of the country nod the correspon
ding necessities of the public service, one
can hardly imagine the necessity of so
vast on augmentation of the necessary ex
penses of the Government as seventy five
millions of dollars; and the immensity of
the sum must arrest :he attention of eve
ry intelligent reader.'
If there is a tribe in the country, which
could be said to come up to the idea we
have of the number implied in the exprea.
aion "numerous as the sands of the sea,"
it is the one that heads this article. Wo
do not pretend to say, the class of individu
als seeking office, is as unworthy as it
is large; but it does not always follow, that
people who think they are capable of talc
ing charge of a 'public establishment,' in
reality are. 'l'he office seekers of the pre
sent day, embrace, as the old song has it,
"The bre we r, the baker, the candlestick maker."
And more than this, the halt-fledged law

ver plead at the bar ; the one who would
have saved his credit had he never, and in
fact That, Dick, and Harry, here there and
every where, are 'out' for 'public service.'

The members of the Roman Catholic
Church of this county, have been holding
a jel,:lee in their church at this place, for
the post week. The immaculate concep
tion of the Virgin Mary, lately adopted by
'the Roman Church, as a leading feature in
the belief of all its members, is the cause
of the jubilee. We visited with a friend,
the church on Friday eve, but as the mem•
tiers were confessing, we left.
The jubilee is held over the whole coon
try, and is a proof that Catholics consider
the Virgin Mary of equal power with Je
sus Christ, and consequently, worthy of
equal adoration ! ! Four priests officiated.
Tum:s.—The work of ornamenting New
England with shade trees on an extensive
scale, has begun. Some five years ago the
first ornamental tree association was formed at
Chelsea. Since then, others have been formed
at East Boston, at South Boston, Haverhill, St.
Albans, 01.0 etc., for the purpose of planting
trees on every street of the several places.—
'The result, have been most happy. Take
East Boston alone. Within three years 1250

of about $4,000, or a little more than $3 each.

The rush of emigration to the west is entire
ly past. The change is striking. Only a few
weeks ago, every steamer was crowded—three,
four and five hundred passengers on a single
boat—all bound to the For West." It seem
ed that the older portions of the country were
to be left to become wastes. But now the
whole stir is over. Steamers which took four
or five hundred people on their last trip to St.
Louis, will not count fifty now—some not half
the numher—and few of these are emigrants.
The hurrying out was necessary, in order to se
cure the planting of crops fur the present sea
son. Those going now would he tee late to so
me food for nest winter, and hence the emi
gration has ceased fur the present. Doubtless,
great distress will be experienced even now,
among the new settlers, owing to the high pries
of food, &e. The whole means of many was
exhausted in going out, and should the crops
fail the distress will be terrible. Cholera, too,
has broken ant fearfully among the new settlers
in Kansas, Minnesota, &tr., and how painful
must be the trials of many of those poor vic
tims of poverty and disease, in their new homes,
away from all the coinforts and conveniences
with which they had been familiar—perhaps
not a physician to be found within ninny wiles.
Wo understand that some of those who emi
grated this spring are already returning to their
old homes. All who propose emigrating to
new states or territories should look carefully
over the whole ground. It is too late to reflect
when the hard trials are upon us—when the
little ones ens starving or languishing with die.
