Our devils have worked lidthfully I r y,ll
render, for one year. The Journal has itc.co
issued regularly, not a single number lost, and
so you won't scold will you, if WO only give Yon
three columns of reading this week? Printers
have as much heed of a little recreation, ns
other people. Printers are human beings, not.
withstanding many people think they can live
on sir, and by not raying up s tarve them.
So don't seal, for we will make it all right.

Faust KANSAL—The New York papers have
voluminous correspondence from Kansas, to
to the 4th inst. No attack had been made up
on Lawrence, but the czeitetnent among the
people was on the inurense. Ono of our cor
respondents says the invader's camp contains
nearly n thousand armed men, who are loud
in their threats against the "Abolition City,',
as Lawrence is called. The citizens of Law.
retie° have been making no great preparations
to meet the mob, whose blustering indeed, they
trent with proper contempt. They are simply'
on the defensive, and herein will resist to death.
The Missourians, it seems, have despatched
their ultiinolunt, but, with all their fierce dis
play of power and pretentions, they will never
be able to bully the Free-State men of Kansas
into submission. A public meeting has been
held in Lawrence, at which the representation•,
and encores made by Governor SHANNON for
calling out the militia, were declared to be

W LTIL-IL will he A.'ettil by the statement we
give below, that the fiscal concerns of the State
undcrtfie pre!ev.,t Administration, are in a very
prosperous Condition. It has been the custom
of our P.enweratic friends, when they were in
powe r , to utter every now and then a trium.
t;. l oant blast of the trtnopct in praise of the Ex
ecutive or Sate Trcasurer,—attributing to the
unparalleled exertions of these °dicers whatev
er indication of prosperity might be exhibited
by the annual examination of the Treasury.—
We do not desire to imitate them in this res•
poet, but only to call attention to the fact that
all the giants did not die out with the last Dem.

a few left who have some financial ability, and
are competent to take care of the pecuniary
interest; of the Commonwealth. The state
went is as follows

The condition of the Treasury as exhibited

people of the Commonwealth. It will be seep
that the February interest may be paid, this
year, without a resort to a cotemporary loan, as
formerly. In view of all the facts, we may
hope that this is but the dawn of that bright

ALLEGED 11.01111 CRY or TIM AnsEntL.—On
'Thursday last Anthony E. Draue, keeper of
the State Arsenal, at Harrisburg, was arrested
by officer Young on a warrant charging him
with taking state arms front the Arsenal, with.
out authority, with a view of disposing of the
same—in short with larceny. After a hearing
before Justices Snyder hu was committed in
drfault of bail which we understood was fixed
at t:' , 2590. It is rumored here that Mr. Aaron
Coburn, member elect to the Legislature from
Philadelphia city, has also been arrested as a
participant in the same transaction and held to
bail in S5OOO.
The authorities at Harrisburg supposing the
missing arms (six boxes) were in Philadelphia,
despatched a messenger, who made affidavit
before the Mayor of the larceny., l'pon this
infcrination, craters Clark nod Levy made in.

missing property might be concealed, and fin
ding none there discovered that the arms had
been and to Now York. They repaired thither
and found the six boxes and their contents at
an establishment in Broadway, the proprietor
of which it is alleged had an interview with
Mr. C., who informed the keeper or superintew
dent of the Arsenal, as condemned arms. Un
der the impressiun that he had done nothing
hut what was perfectly fair and legal 'in the
matter, Mr Coburn waited en Mayor Conrad
