Employment for Laborers,
The prospect for employment, during the conk
ing Winter is not fuvornble. Our factories, we
learn, are very generelly working up their stock,
and not layiug in new supplies. The Chronicle,
of this city, says:
'Vo regret to learn that several of our rolling
mills have t , impended operations, and that others
purpose stopping in a few days. The cause of
the etopptgo is the poor demand that now exists
for iron throughout the country, and the difficulty
of finding safe customers. It is not known when
they will resume work, certainly not until bus
iness looks better than it does just now.
Things seem to have settled down in quietness,
after the election. Some of the papers claim
that, for the past year, the city government had
been much better than previously, and that it was
about as well ordered as a ly large city in the
Union. Others speak of assassinations and rob
beries, and of the impunity of culprits, as a state
of things insupportable. It is pretty evident
that political aspirations bad much to do with
the late abortive attempt at revolution.
A Visit from Philadelphia.
A Committee of theßoard of Trade of Philadel
phia, paid a visit to our city, last week. to consult
with Councils on the subject of the abolition of the
Tonnage tax imposed by the State an the Pennsyl
vania Railroad. This tax, it is alleged, operates
against Philadelphia, both in regard to her busi
ness, and as she Is a very large stockholder in the
road. But Pittsburghers allege that tho discrim
inating tolls imposed by the road—making Pitts
burgh and other Pennsylvania freight pay more
per Mile than Ohio and Western freight, operates
exceedingly against this city ; and they insist that
they cannot unite in a request for the abolition of
the tax, unless discrimination shall be abolished
also. Some' kind compliments passed between
the Committee • and the Councils, and some fine
speeches were made, and the visitors returned,
leaving things near about statu quo.
The recent rains have made great floods. The
Allegheny and Monongahela aro high, overflow
ing the low lands. Chartiers Creek has been un
usually swollen, carrying away two important
bridges and some buildings. The banks of the
Mississippi, upper and lower, were, last week,
still overflown. At St. Louie the water covered
the Levee up to the curb stone, and the America
Bottom was flooded. The Republican thus de
scribed the flood :
"Their cattle and hogs may still be seen, in
the neighborhood of their dwellings, vainly en
deavoring to climb out of the reach of the - water.
Hogs have been seen afloat upon logs and lum
ber, drifting down with the current. Chickens
have taken to the house-tops, and trees, and
spend all their time in roosting. In short, the
country along the river is one scene of flood and
ST. Louis, June 12.—(8y Boat to Alton via
Chicago.) The river rose twenty-eight inches
for the twenty-four hours ending at six o'clock
last night, since which time it has been rising at
the rate of an inch and a half an hour. The
levee' s now perfectly submerged. On the floors
of some of the stores the water is one and a half
feet deep. Illinoistown is wholly under water,
and the bottom is to a great extent inundated.
An additional rise of six to eight feet is coming
down the Missouri and the Upper Mississippi,
and its tributaries continue to pour out a flood.
Very heavy rains prevailed all last night and this
The British Aggressions on our shipping, as is
now pretty clearly ascertained, were not author
ized by that government, and there are indica
tionsthat, in some oases at least, the reports
were greatly exaggerated. There is no danger of
a rupture, nor even of a coolness between the
Governments, on account of these occurrences,
nor any likelihood of their repetition.
271 e Mormon War, it would seem, is ended.
Gov. Cumming was politely received by Brigham
Young, in Salt Lake City, records, were
handed over, and the people exhorted to be sub
missive to the laws of the United States.
Gov. Cumming, in his dispatch to Gen. Case,
says the masses everywhere announced to him
that the torch will be applied to every house in
discriminately throughout the country, as soon
as the troops attempt to cross the mountains,
The people, though nattered, every means would
be taken to telly them. Some of the Mormons
are yet in arms, and the Governor speaks of the
mischief they are capable of rendering as guer
rillas, The way for the emigrants to the Pacific
is open, Gov, Gemming says that he would
leave for the South on the 3d of May. He
says that he will restrain all the proceedings of
the military for the present, and until he shall
receive additional instructions from the President.
The President, on the 11th inst., Bent in a
message to Congress on the subject. He thinks
that our difficulties with Utah are terminated.
He congratulates Congress on the event, says that
appropriations for the three regiments of volun
teers need not be made, and that Texas can be
defended by the regular troops. The detach
ments of troops on their way to Utah, have been
recalled, but the military stores, which are very
large, are to proceed, as Gov. Cumming will be
authorized to retain a large force, for some time.
Large numbers of the Mormons are leaving the
Territory, probably for Sonora. Persons de
siring to return to the States, or to England,
have had their safety guaranteed.
A Duel had almost taken place, last week, be
tween Senators Grain and Wilson, for words ut
tered in the Senate, A challenge passed, but
friends interfered, and the matter was arranged in
a way " honorable to both parties." Such recon
ciliations, now so frequent in Congress, may be
honorable enough, but the quarrels—the ungen
tlemanly language and the challenges—are most
disgraceful. The guilty parties should be frowned
upon. Public sentiment should he loud in its
utterances against them.
The Appropriation Bills prove a matter of vast
di ii oulty to Congress. Money is so scarce, and
there are so many wants, public andyrivate ; and
so many solicitors, on the floors and, in the lobbies,
that it is bard to get through with legislation.
One House appropriates ; the other amends ; the
amendments are declined; conferences are held ;
and the day of adjournment is deferred.
A New Loan is one of the startling events of

debt contracted in ono year, and in a time of
Peace, too, is alarming. Why is this?
An increa se in the Rates of Postage was at
tempted in the senate. Au amendment was at
tached to the Post Office Appropriation Bill, by
a vote of 19 to 11 (a very small vote) making the
postage on letters under three thousand miles,
five *cuts, and over that distance len cents ; also
one, by a vote of ih against 4, abolishing the
Franking privilege, after the fourth of March
next. The House refused to conour. Letter
postage should abide as it is, but the franking
privilege should be restricted, and, a greatly in
creased economy should be practised.

A Terrific Whirlwind.
A most awful btolllll occurred at Ellison, 111., nn
Sabbath, May 80th. Thirteen persons were killed
and ~eventy wounded. The Chicago Press speaks
of it thus:
"The tornado struck the village about half
past five o'clock, and during its continuance no
rain fell. The houses were frame structures,
There was a large tavern stand and three stores
—those of Samuel Johnson, Joseph Knowles, and
another. The appearance of the dwellings and
structures, after toe passage of the whirlwind, is
described by one eye-witness, "as if one should
tear to pieces and scatter a lumber yard." Of
roofs, and walls, and the various structures, there
was seen in many instances scarcely a trace, as if
a giant hand bed reduced and torn them to shreds
and splinters. They lay scattered over the fields.
Here a piece of broken furniture, and there a
shattered door, and beyond an undistinguishablo
mass of timbers and boards, floor beams, ceiling
and rafters. Even the bodies of some of the
sufferers were torn to pieces.
"As an evidence of the fearful form . of the
tornado, it is mentioned in the telegraph, that of
the victims, fragments of the bodies were scattered
in all directions.
"An iron safe weighing nine hundred pounds
was taken from Johnson's store and carried thirty
. 1 Horses, cattle, and hogs were taken up by
the wind, carried in the air, and dashed to the
earth and killed by the fall.
"One cow was taken up, carried several rods,
and killed by the fall. Her body lay at n dis
tance from anything that could have inflicted
wound or injury upon her.
" A heavy cut stone door step, the dimensions
of which are given to us as being some seven feet
in length by three in width, and seven inches in
thickness, was torn from its site, and carried more
than its length, or about twelve feet.
"The first trace of its violence is noticeable in
the Ellison timber, about a mile West of this vil
lage, the place described by John McWilliams as
"the meeting of the clouds." thence on through
the timber the evidences of its force were astound
The trees were pulled up by the roots, twisted,
turned about; and in places noticed by our inform
ant, it seemed as if they had been torn up by
groups, as a child would wantonly twist the tops
of adjaeent weeds and tear them from the ground.
?Trees a foot in diameter were thus made the sport
of the tornado, and were dashed, crushed and
broken to the ground.
The Monmouth Review says:
"Horses, colts, swine, calves, dogs, chickens,
geese, and turkeys, were lifted in the air and
dashed to'dvath upon the ground. An the trees
and shrubbery were stripped of their foliage, and
many had the bark stripped from their trunks to
the end of the limbs. Tall, huge oaks were
twisted and broken off at the trunks, and scat
tered and earriei an almost incredible distance.
Even the green grass was torn up by the roots,
leaving the' earth perfectly bare and destitute.
The tombstones in the graveyard at the West end
of the town were broken off close to the ground,
and the fencing around the graves carried away.'
In front of the residence of Lewis itappallee,
, were two large limestone steps, weighing
from six to eight hundred pounds, that were lifted
and carried at least thirty feet by the twisting,
Webster's Quarto Dictionary.
A good Dictionary is one of the essentials to,
the obtaining of a correct education; and every
one who would be a scholar should be neither
penuriouß as to the expense of books, nor parsi
monious as to the time requisite for consulting
them. Every man should have his Dictionary,
and it should lie beside him in the most convenient
place, and be consulted for every word he does
not clearly understand.
The great rivals for public favor, now before
the English public, are the Lexicons of Webster
and Worcester. We use both, and value each.
The former is advertised in another column, and
we commend it to the attention of all whb do not
already possess it. The New York Observer says
"Daniel Webster expressed the general senti
ment of American Scholars, when he said I
possess many Dictionaries, and of most of the
learned and cultivated languages, ancient and
modern; but I never feel that I am entirely armed
and equipped, in this respect, without Dr. Web
ster at command.' And Rufus Choate says: I
beg to adopt, in its utmost strength and extent,
the testimonial of Daniel Webster.'
"With the exception of the orthography of a
few words, the latest and magnificent editions of
the Dictionary may be pronounced more thorough
ly American than any other work, and it is the
design of those who now control the copyright, to
make it peculiarly and exclusively the Dictionary
of the English language. It has frequently been
assailed on account of the orthography, but in this
it more nearly conforms to the general usage of
the country, than foreign Dictionaries do. And
it moat tie remembered that the great merit of
Dictionary consists in its presenting the entire
vocabulary of the language, with the derivation,
pronunciation and definition of the words. Such
is the admitted superiority of Webster's over ail
dthers in these particulars, that its possession
becomes a necessity, and the testimony of book
sellers from all parts of the country, West and
East, North and South, is that more of this work
is sold, far more, than of all others put together.
The testimony that comes up from all sections of
our wide Republic, shows that the acbools of the
country are to be trained in Webster's Dictionary.
" Nearly every State Superintendent of Public
Instruction in the Union, or corresponding officer,
where i'ueh an one exists, has recommended Web
ster's Dictionary in the strongest terms. Among
them are those of Maine, New Hampshire, Ver
mont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut,
New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Ken
tucky, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Michigan,
lowa, Wisconsin, Louisiana, California, Minnesota,
and also Canada, twenty-one in all. The State of
New York has placed ten thousand - copies of
Webster in as many of ber public schools. Mas
sachusetts has supplied three thousand two hun
dred and forty-eight of her schools—nearly all.
Wisconsin, over three thousand—every school.
New Jersey has provided for all her schools. At
least four fifths of all the school books published
in this country own Webster as their standard,
and of the remainder, few acknowledge any stand
"To these evidences of public opinion we may
add our own experience. Webster is our working
Dictionary; always at hand, and in constant use,
and invaluable as an aid to understand and impart
ideas of the words of our mother tongue. We
could better spare all the others than this. The
edition which is above all other editions, as the
Dictionary itself excels others, is the unabridged
quarto, the only one which contains all the merits
of the work, and the one which we recommend."

Extract of a letter dated June 2d, from Mr.
Samuel Bridge. of Blair County, Pennsylvania:
1/r. F. W. Jenkins—Dear Sir :—After a trial
of better than three months in keeping the books
of an extensive Iron Works, I am exceeuingly
happy to inform you that I find the knowledge
and practice acquired at the Iron City College
more than sufficient to enable me to succeed in
my undertaking. At first I had some doubts, and
no little anxiety, to know whether I was fully
competent for the task, but, though short my ex
perience, I deem it amply sufficient to warrant me
in saying, that a young man can become a prac
tical book keeper in the Iron City College. lam
fully persuaded, that were the merits of the
"Iron City" folly known, vou could not accom
modate the pupils who would apply for admission.

Every one will, we think, agree with us in the
opinion that the human hair is the greatest nat
ural ornament that is possessed either by a gen
tleman or a lady. Just meet an apparently good
looking man, for instance, in the street; you ad
mite his features, whiskers, and general bearing;
but lo! he lifts his hat in recognition of your
bow, and the charm has vanished, for Ichabod is
written on his bald head, and the glory has de
parted with the flowing locks that once flourished
luxuriantly there. In the case of a lady, the mat
if possible, worse—such cases reminding
one of the circumstance on which the following
epigram is founded
"0! give me, fair Pene, a lock of Your hair,"
A bashful young lover took courage and sighed :
"'T was a sin to refuse such a modest request—
So take the whole wig'," the dear creature replied.
Now, to prevent such a catastrophe, is within
the power of every lady and gentleman ; for by
using Prof. Wood's Hair restorative,,bair is not
only prevented from falling off or turning gray,
but the article will restore hair to bald places,
and even if it has changed color and become
gray, it will bring it back to its pristine beauty
and luxuriance. Those wbo are acqnainted with
the anatomy, physiology and pathology of the
hair, must he well aware that certain substances
have specific action upon it, and it is by a judi.

succeeded in compounding a mixture possessed of

children under his roof, who, for the most part,
were supported and educated from his own purse.
The Boards of our own Church, together with
the American Bible Society, shared largely in

conduct at all times consistent. His place in the
