O.V DIT9, T. by Gentlemen Only! Wo cut fvom our exchanges the fol- 1 lowing sayings in regard tQ cne ladies : Uoc-i .-—A lady ia Auburn was in her garden other day, when she sud denly -a-h: J into the house exclaiming that fehe wj attacked by a snake, and fainted. it was found that one of hrr hoops had given way and caused her i'righ . Why should a little boy be careful to i wclyh the conduct of his papa's sister ? Vjsau-e the Bible says, Consider the , fvaya of the aunt and be wise. " A CREEL "PARENT." —On Friday last, Miss Mcßride swore out a warrent in Albany, X. Y., against her father for stealing her ear-rings to bet on a dog fight [ A clergyman was censuring a young lady for tight lacing. "Why" replied the arch Miss, "you would not recom mend loose h'ibiti to yeur parishoners ?" The clergyman, thus outwitted, smiled thoughtful. Of all the projects of reformers and enthusiasts, no otic las done so much to enurg- the ' r oman in a practi cal way, as—hoops. The only way to cure a boy of staying out nights, is to break his legs, or else get the qalitjo h$ runs with x,o do the housework. A little boy once said to his grand mother. " Grandmother, I hope you will die rirst. " " Why so my child. ; " " Be cause I can stand troubles better thuq you can." This hit from an affectionate and brave biy occasioned great laughter. WOMEN'S CHARMS. —Pleasure is to women what the sun is to the flower; if moderately enjoyed, it beautifies, it re freshes, and it improves; if immoderately, it withers, it deteriorates, and destroys. But the duties of domestic life, exercised as they must be in retirement, and call ing forth all the sensibilities of the female, 11 are perhaps as necessary to the full de velopment of her charms as the shade and the shower are to the rose, conform ing its beauty, and increasing its fra. grauce. IN giving advice to young ladies iu the choice of a husband, a modern writer utters the following oracles : The man who doesn't take tea, but takes snuff, and stands with his back to the tiro, is a brute, whom i would not advise you, my dears, to marry upon any consideration, —either for love or money. But the man who when the tea is over, "is discovered to have had none, is sure to make the best husband, Patience like his deserves being rewarded with the best of wives aud the best of mothers-in law. My dears, when you meet such a man do your utmost to marry him. Iu the severest whiter he would not mind going to bed first!" A .NEW DISCOVERY.—The following was communicated to the Boston Ecen inj Gazette by a correspondent of that paper. We hope the discovery will be of benefit to our feminine readers : '• lor the benefit of your lady readers who wear huops who of her sex do not') permit mo to communicate a valu able discovery, by which they are enabled 11 .-it down, even iu a circumscribed space, without pruduciug those awkward and unsightly protuberances on each side, and the frequent bulging out in front of the skirt lixe an inUatcU balloon. The rem edy is simple; the la<4y has merely to lilt the fioop behind when taking her scat, so that it is brought iuto nearly a perpendicular position, and the sides fold snugly over close to the figure. One of the largest and loveliest of her sex hit upon tnis happy idea." PRETTY LARCENY.—The belle of a romantic little village about forty miles northwest ot Toledo was stolen from her father's house a few nights since. The thief wgs an athletic young man, with blue!* eyes and comely features. The young fady's venerable father pursued the thief in the morning, and on arriv ing at , found nis lost daughter, who iutroduoeu tne tniei as her husband.— The old gentleman swore violently for some minutes, when, the thought sud denly striking him that ho was acting' absurdly, he became amiable and said; < 4 Blessings on ye my children !" The children accepted the old gentlemans'j blessings, and have since accepted a few j hundred acres of his extensive estate.— Toledo Commercial, June 28. IiL'CUANAN ON THE SLAVE TRADE. —Tne Tribune calls the attention to the fact, that the President of the United States has remitted the fine im posed upon Captain Smith, in New York, tried some time since for implication in the slave trade : " lie was charged with a capital offence, and the case was perfectly clear against hi; but to avoid the chance of his get ' T by some quibble or pretense set 't I in. of not being a citizen of the '* '' '**-*, the prosecution accepted a i ■ ■ '/ f/r a minor offence. Un- der this plea he was sentenced to a term of imprisonment and a fise of $lOOO. — During his imprisonment he freely boast ed to those who visited him of his connec tion with the slave trade, and his special relish for the business. His term of im prisonment having expired, the President has remitted his line and set him free. " elj? Jlflthc Journal. COIDEKSPORT, I*A.„ lifoiVma, fyiy Z ISST. T. S. CHASE.

A Convention of the County School Superintendents of Pennsylvania, has been called, by Mr. Ilickok, efficient State Superintendent, to assemble in Read ing, on Wednesday, the 22nd of July next, at 10 o'clock, a. uj., for the purpose of consultation with regard to the present condition and future prospects of the Common School system of this Common wealth. The Convention will be one o( special importance; and composed, as we may pre-suppose, of a body of highly ed ucated gentlemen, engaged in the noble work of popular education. KANSAS.—The Kansas Free State Leg islature met at Topeku on the 11th inst. Gov. Robinson's message recommends an immediate and thorough reorganization of the government, a modification of the laws, and the memorializatiou of Congress. He examines the inaugural of Gov. Walker, contends that the Topeka Constitution was the only clear expression of the pop ular will of Kansas, and believes that in competent neighboring States no longer exercise sovereignty in Kansas. He also declares it impossible for free State men to vote at bogus elections; and, in conclu sion, will maintain the position of resisr tauee against usurped authority at ail haz ards and at all times. Supplement to flic Scliuol Law. An Act supplementary to the Common School Law, was passed at the late session of the Legislature. It provides for Aud iting the accounts uf School Treasurers and for increasing the minimum School Tax from 00 cents to one dollar: SECTION 1. He it enacted, That it shall he the duty of the boruiigh and : township Auditors, in addition to the du ties now imposed upon them by law, to : settle annually the accounts of the School Treasurers of the different school dis tricts iu this. Commonwealth, and that either party may take an appeal as is now provided lor in other cases of settlement of accounts by township Auditors. Pro vided, That this Act shall not Apply to the city and county of Philadelphia. SECTION 2. That hereafter the tax im posed by section thirty of the Act ap proved .May eighth, one thousand eight hundred and fifty-four, for the regulation and continuance of a system of education by Common Schools, on trades, profess ions, and occupations, or on single free men, shall in 140 ease be less than QNE DOLLAR. Approved May 21st, 1557. HOW JAJIES THOJUI'SOW As this gentleman has been nominated by the Buchanan Democracy for the Su preme Bench, we will recall a portion of his political history, which shows that he is unworthy the votes of freemen. In 1818 Mr. Thompson was a candi date for reeleotioa to Congress in this District. The contest was warm, and the result doubtful. There was a large num ber of Free Soil Democrats in this Dis trict and without the votes of them he could not be elected. He for that pur pose wrote the following letter. ERIE, Pa. Sept, 8, 1848, GENTLEMEN—Iours of the 27th uit. has just been handed me, and as I cer- ! taitiiy recognize your right to make the enquiries tuereiu contained, 1 hasten to: reply. w hen the first territorial bill for Ore gon, that was passed was reported, 1 ox tered as a minority report, tne following as an amendment to the twelfth Section of the bill. Proyiaea that neither Slaveiy nor iu voi notary servitude shall ever exist in smd lerntory except for cn.uc, whereof the party shall have been duly convicted." (See Journals of 2iHh Congress, nairesi 1240 and 1245.) This proviso I of course voted for; it passed the House, but did uot pass the Senate. In Feb. 1847, the same bill being under consideration, containing a Section reenacting the ordinance of 1787 which prohibited Slavery in the Territory I voted against strikiug it out, and voted against an amendment recognizing the | Missouri Compromise. At the session of Congress that has just closed, 1 voted against the Clayton ! Compromise and also against the Missou-j jri Compromise, and for inserting and re-j 1 taining the above, reenacting the ordin- j iance of 1787 and making it applicable to | the Orregon Territory. You will therefore see I have shown by ! my votes, my belief in the power of Con | gress to prohibit Slavery in the Territo -1 ries—l have no doubt 9 whatever, of the ! power and the right of Congress to do so. j I have on all occasions voted to ex j elude Slavery from the Territories belong ! ing to the United States now, aud shall ! continue to do so, convinced that no com ! promise is necessary either to persons, the Union, or required by any Constitutional mandate. 1 shall, as I have already done, vote against all compromises by which Territory now free shall become Slave | Territory. I may add that this is not new doctrine to me. I have uniformly i so voted, on all Territorial bills and shall ' continue so to do; and I shall vote for | the ordinances of 1787 to be made appli cable to the Territories of the United ' States, or of any other words of prohibi : tion that may bo equivalent thereto. This doctrine of prohibiting Slavery in j Territories was first introduced by me, .after the acquisition of the new Territory : and applied directly to the Territory, j*ot ! others do not hesitate to claim much for j adopting a principle they never suggest | cj, and forget those who did so. Respectfully Yours, JAMES THOMPSON. S. J. Goodrich, G. W. ScoSeld, J. D. James, G. Merrill, T. Ciemmons, L. I Arnett. In the above letter Judge Thompson put himself unreservedly on the platform of the Free Soiiers, and thus secured their votes and his election, Mark the pledges which he made to the men opposed to Slavery extension in this District: "I have on all occasions voted to ex clude Slavery from the Territories be longing to the United States uow, and shall continue to do so." No F rec Sorl mau—no Republican asked move than this. But how did James Thompson redeem the above pledge ? He had scarcely taken his scat in Congross when he became the most servile tool of the Slave Power in all the ' North. He not only voted to organize New Mexico and Utah withovt exclud i iug Slavery therefrom, but he voted for the Fugitive Slave Bill, the most odious land most inhuman act that was ever pre ' seated to Congress. Judge Thompson not only voted for this Liberty crushing ' act, but as Chairman of the Committee which had it in charge, he called the pre vious question on presenting it, and thus put the gag on any discussion of its mon strous injustice. Compare his conduct jon this occasion with the statements and promises made in the above letter, and then siiy if you can, that he is lit to be a Judge of the Supreme Court. What can ho kuow of justice and honor, of truth and equity. This letter taken in connection with his course in .Congress after he got there, shQws him to be an unprincipled, and untruthful demogogue. If that is the stud' out of which to make a Judge, then vote for James Thompson, the nominee of the Buchanan Conven tion—if not remember him at the ballot box, This is the lirst time he has come before the freemen of this District since he acted as the tool of Slavery in putting the Fugitive Slave Bill through under the orack of the plantation whip. We shall learn in October what is thought of sueh treachery by a free people. Dlixveral Wealth of llcKcan.

COUDERSPORT, POTTER Co, PA., "I June 30. 1857. j MR. JOHN SCROGGS: ! Dta>• Sir: —Your kind favor came to hand iu 's absence, but he in- j structed me to answer all letters relating! to engineering operations of this character | and you may depend that whatever I agree 'to do in your behalf, he will most relig ! iously and faithfully observe. With this assurance you can sit down contentedly | under your own vine and tig tree, if you have anv, and solace yourself with the j : contemplation of the vast mineral wealth ; within your immediate knowledge; and it : it is possible for rich men to be happy i there is nothing to prevent you from be- j ; ing as happy as any of them. You may meet me with the argument that this wealth does not belong to you, and that therefore you cannot eujoy it. This I will admit is very true; but you must bear in mind the stupendous fact, ! that you and James Johnsiugare the sole possessors of the knowledge of this great wealth, and as both and myself aro Free masons, and always intend to be las far your secret is concerned, you can both remain a couple of undeveloped, aud j what is better, untaxed millionaires for ' ever. Glorious contemplat'.ou! Philosophers tell us, my dear sir, that the joys of anticipation far exceed in their j intensity the joys of actual participation. Now hero is an opportunity very seldom offered to "erring mortals hero below" ■as Dr Watts piousiy calls us, to prove the truth of this grave but very philosophical hypothesis! Li was said by a leagued French savant that the discovery at' u dish was j of more importance to. the world than the discovery of a planet. "Because" said ho, !"a dish was something which the world : % O < needed for every day use, and we have planets onough already." So, my daar Sir, ' if you can iu cojunction with your fossil iferous friend Mr. James Johasing prove to the philosophical world the truth of ; the hypothesis which I have stated, you will be immortalized far longer than if I you were merely the discoverers of a pal try gold mine. Don't you see? i 1 regret most heartily, aud I am sure ! every true lover of his country will regret that you and your geological friend Mr. James Johnsing have actually discovered a gold mine (not to speak of the silver one) in that county. I regret it, because | every day of my life I see accounts iu the l newspapers of the wickedness which mcu arc "up to" on account of the wretched ! stulf. Why, my dear Sir, it was only last week that the N. Y. Daily Herald j contained a horrible murder, brought about by gold! The circumstances which I you have doubtless read, are as follows: | Mr, John Smith went into a cake and beer saloon to buy somo cake and beer.—< After the purchase and sale of the cake land beer was made iu a businesslike man ner, he took a mouthful of Cue cake and beer and was in the act of swallowing it, when another man eanie up and choked ' him and took ninety-two cents in gold out of his pocket. Now what made him |do it? Was it not the gold? Certainly it was! If not what else was it? Now if a man will throttle another for such a small sum in gold, you can imagine, you and your mineral friend 3lr. James Joan sing, how great an injury you and Mr. Jauies Johnsiug would be doing to McKean county. Look at California for example. There is no practical piety there nor has there been, since the Vigilance Committee abandoned their hempen ox hortations, Why? Because the State is crammed full of gold. Mc and the apostle Paul (who used to preach, but not on the McKean Circuit, though it is supposed that he was on his way here when he got strauded at Philadelphia, for which you will ''search the Scrip-! tures") he and I agree, when he says that money is the ."root of all evil." Indeed, I could fill up an entire new testament in telling over to the world how much troub le I had in my life in getting and spend ing what little 1 have had in my day.— -i Now in view of the testimony of the N. \ ork Herald, St, Paul and myself, would : you open up that gold and silver mine and thereby ruin the bodies and souls of the people of McKean county ? I mean I those who don't belong to the church and have not religion and vital piety I enough to resist it ? 1 think not. I think you would not. Not at all! Not by no! means! If you do open it after wuat 1 1 have said, I shall always doubt your pietv, I will iudeed, ! But if yuu arc determined to open these mines I will make you an offer, and I have not the least doubt hut that Air. -and Mr.—*—wiil both stand to it, just as I said wheu I began this letter; aud if they dua't stand to it, I will do so on my own single, undivided, individual responsibility, as a Christian, a gentleman and a scholar. And I pledgo my word turther, that every dollar I make in this speculation, that is, if you take me up, shall be devoted to building up churches, poor-houses, jails, orphan asylums, hos pitals, penitentiaries and other benevo lent institutions. I will also endow a university for the benefit of "poor but j respectable ' young men who arc "seek- j ing knowledge under difficulties," and who wish to neoome scientific geologists like your frieud Mr, Jauies Johnsing. j Here i 3 my offer : Ten cents per ton for all the coal you deliver at my office in Coudersport at [that price. Fifteen cents per ton for lead ore. Teu cents per ton for iron ore. Thirteen cents per ton for copper ore. ; Fifty-two cents per ton for silver ore, i warranted. Seventy-five cents to a dollar per ton j for gold ore, according to the quality, all ] ■to be above 17 carats Hue, warauted not to be plated, galvanized or pinch back. Ten ceuts a quart for rectified benzole | with the alcohol taken out, as this is a Temperance community, j I make these offers in round numbers, ' though the copper would not be worth iiuore than 121 cents per ton now, since the new cent has come out. All miner als must be examined and approved by Professor Willard Taylor, of Liberty Township, before delivery to me. I will ; further add that you are to purchase and i mine at your own expense. I only pro ' pose to furnish you with a market where 'you can meet with ready sales as long as Imy money lasts. Let me assure you that the whole thing will be kept as you re i quest, a profound seoret. My wife and : her friends say that "they won't mention : it for the world," so that it cannot possi ' bly sret out. If you want some one to help keep the secret over in Mclvean Co. I think you can have no trouble in find in 2 such a person. With the kindest assurances that you ' and your auriferous friend Mr. James 'Johnsing have my sympathy, and that I hope you will find a good openi/ig some where, and that you will appreciate my via i, I remain, geologically speaking "in place," Your Obt. Servt. ' Tlic Free State Men in Kansas. The devoted and noble band of Free State, uicn, who have so lung and earnest ly struggled against fearful odds, are again assembled to take council concern ing their futa-'e course of action. The Legislature, elected under the Top ka Constitution, has quietly organized and is proceeding to district the Territory for judicial and legislative purpose l . They are acting as if there were no such indi vidual in the world as Governor WALK ER. It seems as if he, with all his vaunt* ed powers and talents, is destined to be not more successful than his predecessors. And he ought not to be, for he is attempt ing, with the subtlety and intriguing dis position for which he is famous, to com promise away freedom aud free principles. His predecessors failed, because they were not sufficiently devoted to the ex tension of slavery. He ought to fail, be cause lie is devoted to the interests of •slavery. The Free State men, by their present pr ecdure, evince a sublime heroism.— The party who favored their cause last fall was defeated iu the national election. I j Every department of the Federal Gov ! eminent is against them. All the Tcrri ! torial appointments made by President : BUCHANAN are from the slave States.— In short, with all that can ordinarily de ter mon from action against them, they have coolly met, and proceeded to aot as | if all before them was easy, hop eful, and promising. This is the very highest spe oies of self-sacrifice, and tho strongest ev-. idenoo of devotion to principle. Surrounded by men who would uso arniGd forco to break up their assemblage in any moment of exoitement, they go quietly on in tho disoharge of their duty, regardless of all personal consequences. For this hcroio oonduct, they deserve, in an eminent degree, the thanks of the whole country. They have already won its esteem and regard, but they have heightened that esteem and regard by this recent display of virtue and love of freedom. Let them never compromise with wrong and oppression. They hold in their keeping the Thermopylae where, liberty and slavery have met in deadly coufiiot. If they should prove untrue to the trust, the freemen of the world would curse them, and their memories would rot with infamy.— Phil. Times. THE SALE OF TIIE MAIN LINE. —THE Main Line was sold last night, at 7} o' | clock, at the Philadelphia Exchange, for ; the sum of seveu millions, live hundred thousand dollars. It was the first and I only bid made, and it was announced us | the bid of J. Edgar Thompson, the Pres ident of tho Pennsylvania Railroad Co. There was a very large concourse of per sons present, and the excitement was quite manifest. The strong feeling ex hibited was favorable to the sale, and when its consummation was anuouncedthe crowd broke forth in one loud and pro longed shout of applause. The Locofoco opposition to the sale did not seem to meet with much encouragement in that quarter. What will Schnable and Mott do now i — Philadelphia 20 \nst. I L. D WILLIAMS. — By an article in j the last week's JOURNAL, we notice that one L. Dt WILLIAMS, a former resides of Potter county, Pa., has accepted office under the Bogus Code in Kansas, though professiug to be a Free State : man, is officiating in Osawatomie, a Free J State town in that Territory, as a Bogus j Justice of the Peace, and as Probate Judge. It seems furthermore, that the good people of Osawatomie do not desire ' the services of any of these Bogus of ( ficials, and have held a meeting, and po. litely requested said WILLIAMS tore, , sign. We do not think he will be i u . duced to do so. We never saw the man but ouce, and that was when lie was on his way to Kansas. He stopped ovet night at a public house in this village, j and learning that he was on his way to Kansas, there to settle, and presuming that we should find him a sympathiser ; with the Free State settlers in their suf. ferings from the inflictions of Ruffianism, we entered into conversation with him in regard to matters connected ' j with the Territory. We had not talked | five minutes with him, before we made up our mind that more was to be hoped , for in the emigration of the Ruffians themselves into Kansas, than in 1 that of such "Free State" men as thu L. D. WLL.UAMS, In short he seemed, to us a hypocritical Border Ruffian in , disguise. We cannot so much as hope that WILLIAMS will resign. He is "Bogus" Democrat, a "Bogus" Free State man, and simply fit to be a tool of the "Bogus" Governor and Legislature of Kansas. — Wells v ille Free Press. SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION !—WHIS KY EXPLOSION. —We uuderstand that Mr. J. 11. Freeland, who keeps a hotel at Con lieu ut Lake, iu this county, purchased from a canal boat, last week, a barre? pur porting to he filled with '-Double rectified ' Old jlouuugaiiela \\ Lisky." It w:8 t-afely deposited in his Bur-room, aud he proceeded to d.aw it oil into another cask. After taking out some live or six gallons, he heard a strange hissing sound in the barrel, and soon after the bung flow oat with a loud report, followed by a lurid tlanie, shooting up from that open ing to the ceiling; then followed a tre mendous explosion, occasioned by the bursting of the barrel, the head of which was thrown out with great force, scatter ing the burning liquid around the room, and knocking down several buttles and demijohns on the shelves, adding their contents to the flaiuible material. By dint of great exertion the tire was put out but not until the bar-room was scorched and charred, wherever a wood surface was exposed. Fortunately no 'lives were lost. This explosion is accounted for only by the fact, that whisky is now manu factured almost solely of dings of a tierv an:.! poisonous na ure, and this barrel had au iver dose of some of the infamous in gredient*. We understand that a por tion of the liquor will be sent into tuwn to b analyzed by some of our scientific men, when we trill be able to give our readers some idea of the stuff those drink who take doses of ''Old Monongahela' as at present manufactured. — Mead i die Journal. A HINT TO FARMERS. —The protract ed and general rains of the last two months rouder a loug and severe drouth ill the later Summer or Fall li ighly pli able—such a drouth as, in large district*, : consumed last .\utumn much of the cured fodder that was needed for Winter and Spring, and thus caused the starvation of man}' cattle. Now is the time to avert the disastrous effects of a similar drouta this season, by sowing Indian Corn, or some other succulent plant for fall feed ing. Two acres thus sown last June would have carried through many a herd that perished or was seriously injured bj the famine of last March and April. Let those who sow Corn, drill it and <rive it space. It it almost always sown too thick on rich ground. And let those who can buy Sorghum seed in quantities at a reduced price—(we believe it now be bought in large quantities as low as four or live shillings per pound) —g'* rft th ; s a trial. It is to late now to plant for seed or sugar, but not for fodder- Give it a warm, rich soil, drills four feet apart, and ruuniug north and south (so 35 to give the sun his best chance at it), and put tho seeds at least four iuehes apart in the rows, and two or three pounds of seed will suffice for a very large area.— We believe this plant will supplant In dian Corn as a fodder crop; but let expe rience settle this poiut.
