Wednesday Morning, Novemberl4, 1855,
Small Pox.
The Small Pox has made its appearance in
Hollidaysburg. Wo understand from the Re.
gieter that "it has spread through carelessness
beyond the limits to which it might have been
confined." The Register thinksstrangers need
not entertain any fears about contracting the
disease by visiting the tom].
The Ohio Election.
The Ohio State Journal contains the full of•
ficial returns of the late election. The total
stands as follows
Chase's minority on the whole vote,
The Vote in Kanzas.
The following is the result of the election
lately held in Kan.. ) according to the papers
of that territory :
Total number of votes east for Reeder, 2864
Total number do. do. Whitfield, 2462.
The Kansas Herald remarking on this says,
by examining the above returns it will be ob
served that the principal vote of the pro-slave.
ry party is polled at ten precincts, all of which
places, save Leavenworth, are sparsely settled.
These ten precincts poll 1657 votes, two-thirds
of the entire pro•slavery strength. If this vote
was thoroughly purged—as it will be before a
Congressional committee—it would lie found
that less than 1000 votes of actual residents of
Kansas were polled for Whitfield.
Impeachment of judge Kane.
We see stated that petitions are in circulu•
tiou in Maine. Illinois and other States, to Con.
gross, praying that Judge Kane of Philadelphia
may be impeached at the bar of the Unit3d
States Senate, for misconduct in office, "in
surping a jurisdiction properly belonging to the
Courts of Pennsylvania, and committing, to
prison P.m, ore Williamson, a citizen of Penn. •
sylvania, without authority and in violation of
his rights as a citizen of Pennsylvania, and of
these United States."
We aserved by a telegraphic despatch, that
Judge Kane was at 'Washington a few days ago,
and had a long interview with the President.—
The Judge probably uhticipates some trouble
ahead, and ilesii4s to secure the backing of the
President and the administration,
The British Naval Movement.
We !earn from the Pittsburg Journal that att
English gentleman in that City has r,•
oeived by the last steamer from England a
ter from a distingnished admiral in the Brit:
Navy, which, under date of October 1.9, sar,
`•For what reasons I know not, several ship
of the Baltic fleet ant ordered to Bermuda
Jamaica, which looks 'al, wcnth, •
the westward. It may 1,, however, nals
- crews in good health 'till the coming 4 .
This corroborates the statements we pultF.:.
iu another column, and at the same time sl,:w
how it is regarded in the British navy. The,,i
-gestllm that it is to I,ovp the crews in
hutalth unt.l the coining spring, is said to be the
explanation, given by authority, to the govern-
merit at Washington. Lisbon is said - to be the
usual rendezvous for that purpose, but as
portant political purposes may be afoot in the
Nest Indies, the health of the squadron serves
well as an excuse for the present movement. I
Postal Mismanagement.
We cite the following, as one among many
of the sad effects of post office mismanage
moot, under the present Jesuistical rule of J.
Ca..ipbell, whose only standard of &nest he
has for In2usurin a man for office, is—is he a
g .ad Catholic ? We venture to say that the
post offie , der vtment of country was nev
er so w"fully mismanaged, as under the super
vision of Jimmy Campbell at the present tine.
The Boston Post, in noticing a terrible in
stance of suffering at St. Louis, caused by Post
Office mismanagement or robbery, says a man
who went thence to Te:sas, to return immedi
ately, found some profitable business which
would detain him several months and therefore
wrote to his wife, inclosing $l5O for her. The
letter never reached her, and being with her
five children turned out of her home for non
payment of rent, and driven to despair by the
idea that her husband had deserted her, she
drowned herself and youngest child in the Mis
sissippi. The unhappy father and husband re
ceiving no answer to his letter, returned to St.
Louis to find himself a widower, and his chil
dren supported by public charity. The Post
master who stole that $l5O will hitve a fearful
account to settle with a department, the Head
of which it is impoasible to cheat or deceive.
The Plan of the Allies.
From the latest intelligencef;;the seat of
war, it is evident that the Allies intend on the
side of Eupatoria to threaten the rear of the
Russians and cut off their communications,
while they menace their left at Aitodor. Their I
movements show that these operations are cots.
bined in the same plan, while it is equally evi
dent that Gortschakoff intends to keep his corn.
munieations open with Perekop. Nur will he
remain long contented to see the Allies gather. ,
ing forces in the rear of his position. The in-
evitable consequence is there must be a fierce I
and sanguinary struggle on the heights, from
which, or either side ho can operate to great ad
vantage. If ho worn to dispatch a detachment
of eighty thousand to Eupatotia, it would be a
bold stroke and disastrous to the Allies. And
if such movement wore made with celerity, it
would greatly peril the condition of the Allies
at that point. The billigerent powers will
scarcely remain nntisfied in their present three.

°Rents are continually arriving and the Allies
are full of courage, and anxious to effect some
further change in the condition of things at Se.

A Battle with Pirates in China.
We neglected to notice last week that an en•
gagement had taken place on the 4th of An•
ted States stenm-frigate Powbatan and her Bri
tish Majesty's steam•aloop Rattler, aud a large
fleet of piratical junks which had for Mlle time
previously infested the neighboring waters and
committed extensive depredations on commerce
The Powhatan's boat expedition was in com
mand of senior Lt. R. B. Pegram ; that of the
Rattler was commanded by Commander W. A.
Fellows. The tight was severe, and ceded in a
j complete ruute of the pirate. Captain Fellows
having engaged a large war junk with his gig's
craw and live musketeers, Lieut. Rolando cause
to his assistance, and captured the junk by boar
! ding her, after encountering a hand to hand re
! sistance. Immediately after the capture she
was blown up by one of the piratical crew, who
fighting courageously, was forced below, and is
supposed in his despo Mimi to have tired a train
communicating with the magazine. The ef
fects were tnost disastrous, capsizing the Rat
tler's' gig, blowing Capt.:Fellows overboard, to
gether with Lieut. Rolando and it number of the
Powhatan's men, killing two and and severely
wending others, one of whom has since died.
Private Adamson, of the marines, Who fought
gallantly during the day, was shot severely in
the groin, after being one of the first to ::;ain
the enemy's deck. Arany instances of individ•
ual gallantry and daring arc detailed in the re
port, and great praise is given to all who parti
cipated in the engagement.
During the action, ten war junks, men Ming
on an average sixteen or eighteen gulls of from
six to sixty-eight pounders, every burnt, blown
up and destroyed. Six junks and larch,as were
recaptured, one of which, being aground, was
burnt. The others were placed under coevoy
of the Eaglet, a steam tender. Statues smal
ler junks made their escape. The exact nun•
her of pirates killed; wounded, and drowned
during the enga;mment is not known, bet their
loss is estimated at between five and six hilted
ed. The decks were covered with the bodies
of the slain, and the Water was filled with the
drowning men. The force of the Pirates atm
minted to about fifteen hundred turn. This of
occurred on the coast of China, about the
beginning of August.
The Case of Paeimore
,On Saturday morning Passmo:',• . ,ts. • s

prisoned in July last. Judge Kane received
the petition, granted the prayer net required
Williamson to attires to what he had to say in
reply to the interrogatories of the court. Car.
tabu interrogatories were then propounded to
him by Mr. Vandyke, the District Attorney,
to which he replied

Some discussion arose between the District
Attorney and the counsel oral, Williamson.—
Mr. Vandyke contended that the reply of the
defendant was evasive and contradictory. 'lie
Judge said she difficulty, he thought, :, •
easily overcome by amending the answer, tail
at the sugAtion of the Court it was amended
in the following manlier;
'I did not so seek to obey the writ by produ
cing the persons in the writ mentioned before
this court. 1 did not seek because I verily be-
Howl that it was entirely impossible fur me to
produce the said persons agreeably to the com
mand of the court.
This answer was then accepted by the court
and ordered to be Sled.
Judge Kane then remarked that the District
Attorney had been invited to aid the court in
this case, but that he would bear in mind that
his relation to Mr. Wheeler was now suspend
ed. This was only an inquiry as to what injury
had been dune the process of the court.
Mr. Vandyke said that he was aware of the
position he occupied.
Judge Kane then said—'‘The contempt is
now regarded as purged, and the party is now
released from custody. lie is now reinstated
to the position he occupied before the contempt
Was committed. Mr. Williamson is now befom
me on the return of the writ."
Mr. Vandyke then arose and addressed the
court, stating that a none pros. had been enter.
ed in the case in this court, but that lie had, on
behalf of Mr. Wheeler, entered a suit for dam•
ages in the U. S. Circuit Court. Judge Katie
thereupoti discharged Williamson from custo
dy. lie was immediately surrounded and
heartily congratulated by his friends. lie is
said to look exceedingly e•elt.
Think before Acting.
The worst thing a man can do is to act with.
out reflection. Your hasty person is generally
a fool. He is always in hut water himself, or
plunging, his friends in for Mtn ; he cannot be
trued ; with the best intentions often be never
theless does wrong. You might as well throw
lots as take his advice for his decision is nev
er worth the breath expended in giving it.
_ _ .
If a nine looks back over his life, he will
generally discover that, hie errors have arisen
from a want of reflection. He has entered in•
to a partnership, without properly considering
the character of his associate, the capital re•
coked, or the fitness of the company for the
work to be done. He has purchased a farm
without duly examining the soil, its vicinity to
market or the amount of money required fur
necessary repairs. He has begun a business
without measuring his means to the end. He
has married a wife in a sudden whim, without
studying her disposition or acquirements. He
has embarked iu a speculation, without fully
counting the cat'. In short, whatever has tent.
ed out ill will usually be traceable to an owls
sion on his part to proper reflection.
Municipalities, commonwealths and nations
are as liable to involve themselves in diflicul.,
ties as individuals ; and, therefore, reflection is
as indispensable to them, before acting, as to
private persons. It is easy to embark in
provements, and even pay for them in loans ;
but when pay day comes, it is sometimes hard
to meet the creditor ; but even many a corps•
ration wishes it had thought more salon sly be-
Ibre it was too late. It is not difficult to plunge
a nation into war ; but it is an Herculean task
often to bring about a pence.
Young men, when starting life, especially in
this "flint" sge, are too apt to,ahn for a char
acter of doing things quickly. They forget
that, unless things are well done, or a project
well•censidered, their quickness is niers apps.
rent than real. Davy Crockett said a thing as
wise as the wisest of Bacon's aphorisms, when
he gave the honest advice, "Be sure peters righl
then go ahead."
Post Office Depredations.
For some time past; says the Cincinnati
Times; there have been complaints made by
the Post Oilier Department at Washington, of
the large number of:otters, with money in them
lost in transportation through Ohio, and which
is said to exceed that of any other State. In
consequence of these complaints, the U. S.
Marshal has been unremitting in his efforts to
ferret out and bring to justice these depreda
tors; in which, with the assistance of Messrs.
W. J. Drown and 'l'. P. Shelcross, the mail
agents, he has been so far successful us to ar
rest within the past five months no less than
eleven postmasters, charged with this system
of peculation, all of whom have been examined
before the U. S. Commissioner, and several
add to hail to stand their trial at the October
term of the li. S. District Court.
This is a pretty state of things. Eleven
postmasters detected and arnsted robbing
the mail, in one State, in the Union, in the
short space of five months. But could anything
else be e.speeted, when the Jesuit Campbell has
been busy for two years past, hunting out the
holiest American postmasters, and appointing
in their stead red-nneed,d, ignorant Irishmen?
This is bet a begi, . sit the postmasters
who suppress Aie , ..rieei newspapers were ar
rested tel tried, see think there would be few
who wonld escape punishment.

Anticipated Negro Jnstn•rerlion in Baton
lioage.—A correspondent of the New Orleans
Delta, writing from Baton Rouge on the 17th
of October, says ; "Lost night our usually quiet
city was thrown into a state of great excitement
by current rumors intended rising of the
negroes of this place, and the plantations in the
vicinity. , Anonymous letters were received by
the editors of the Advocate, and by the Mayor,
purporting to give information of a welhor:ut.
nisei] plan by the negroes to assemble during
the night, take possession of the U. S. Arsenal
toil the Branch Bank, nod being thus provided
with money nod material, to corn ineneu n eau:-

port spread like wildfire, and our citizen s turn.
ed out in large numbers, armed to the teeth,
and the streets and the suburbs were patrolled
till night. Nothing transpired however to con•
firm the rumor."
A ll2oer to some Purpose.—The fortune left
by the late Boron filet rich, of Vienna, to his
grand-son, Prince Sulkowski, amounts to eigh
teen millions of Series, ($1,000,000.) There
were found in the cellar 22 brigs, each contain•
ing 1000 ducats in gold, and in different chests
securities out of date and lost for a sum of ISO,.
000 florins. This practice of hoarding gold is
said to be very common iu Austria, where the
currency it greatly depreciated.
