Corner of Baltimore and South sweets., Baltimore, A' We are again obliged to ask •emr venders to excuse the Invited amount of reading matter in our paper this week. We will endeavor to male - *arrangements to give more in future. In the meantime we would direct their attention to our new advertisements, which we hope, in the absence of something better, will interest them somewhat, and may give them information which will prove to be of more advantage than forty newspapers as large u the side of our office, filled with love tales, and gossiping' about nothing, and political elan• • ders, &c. ILTWe have been requested to state that on the evening of Friday, the 6th of October next, Thad deus. Stevens, Esq., and other distinguished orators will address the friends of Taylor and Johnston, at -the Town Ha, in Columbia. Ell'We have been requested to state that Col. Wm. Bigler,Geo. W.

Otto Bavristoat Anvicansastercrs.—Through the its:Num of Mr. Thompson, several of the best deal 'era in Baltimore have laid before the readers of the Spy, their claims to patronage. Hamilton Easter, ty Co., they of the finest and moat elegant establishment in the Monumental City, have given such an outline of their business, that we shall only direct strangers to their store.— If you want to find them, " follow the crowd." The Niagara Shower Bath.—Mr. E. Larrabee, No. 24, South Calvert St., manufactures this truly useful article, possessing advantages over any other bath we have ever seen. The streams are projected upon the neck—obviating the difficulty which has rendered shower baths so unpopular, among pa tients of delicate and nervous habit; and the shower is continued at the pleasure of the bather. The bath is a very respectable piece of furniture, which none who have tried it, would be without.— Those desirous of doing so, can examine a sped men at our residence. Price $2O. E. F. Hunt is authorized to act as agent for this vicinity. Accmr.sr.—A serious accident occurred on 5..1. atrday morning last, at the Railroad in Lancaster. William Everdink, a German, who resides in this place, and is now in the employ of Mr. Thomus Baumgardner, Cool Merchant of the city of Lan. caster, Lad his arm so badly crushed as to render amputation necessary. The operation was sue. cesafully performed near the shoulder joint, by Drs. H. E. Muhlenbcrg and Elder. The patient, - we learn, is doing well. Another.—Mr. Greenawalt, Despatcher on this end of the Philadelphia and Columbia Railroad, was run over by a horse the other day, at the basin and considerably injured, though not dangerously . Another StiU.—Yesterday tiporning a horse, at- tached to a butcher's wagon from Wrightsville, took fright below our office and ran up Front street at full speed, leaving the bed of the wagon on the rail' road track in front of our door, and the running gears farther up on this of the street. No person Injured. Several dogs got a good breakfast by the accident. FINC.-A new two story frame dwelling house, afloat° in the outskirts of the town, near the Union Pike, and belonging to Daniel Underhill, was entire. ly destroyed by fire on Wednesday last. We have not been able to learn the cause of the fire. The house was not quite ready to be inhibited, and is a serious loss to the owner. YORK AID COURSALAND RAILROAD!--We learn that at the election held on Saturday last, the fol lowing named gentlemen were elected ofieera of this company by a unanimous vote: President—Thomas C. Humbly, of York Directors—George M. Gill, William B. Duvall. and Adam Denmead, of Baltimore; John Hough, George Criat, and Samuel Small, of York. The Company being thus organized, we learn that the road will now proceed to a speedy com pletion. =I FIRL ON THE PORTAGE RAILROAD. -711C Pitts burgh mere state that on Friday morning last the engine houses at the plane No.S were discover ed to be on fire, and before any assistance could be rendered they were burned down, rendering both the stationary engines et that place useless for the present. This will of course stop operations at this point for a few days, probably six or eight at farthest. In the meantime arrangements have been made to wagon goods, passengers, baggage, &e. round the plane. The cause of the fire is not known. Five cars belonging to Bingham's Line, Mailed with dry goods and groceries, were con temned, es also six bloom ears. == FROM ATRICA.—The British brig Beam arrived at Now York on Saturday, from Sierra Leone, Au gust 1.

The following is from Wilmer & Smith's Times dated Liverpool, Sept. 9th : "The fine weather and temporary settlement of the dispute between Germany and Denmark, has had a favorable effect and produce being abundant, prices of grain have receded. The news from the Manufacturing Districts is encouraging. ENGLAND.—The Queen opened Parliament in per son on the sth, and immediately afterwards depart ed for Scotland. IRELAND.—Ireland continued tranquil, the State trials not having been resumed yet. Faance.—Lamartinc has published a defence against the charges made against him, in conse quence of which General Cuvaignac has been com pelled to deny any intention of suppressing the Coustitutionnel. This journal and La Preset have resumed their fierce attacks against the Govern ment. The latter even wages war against the Re public. despite General Cavalgnao's declaration not to allow the Republic to be impeached. The Buoimpartists are moving to elect Louis Na poleon to the Presidency. The disturbances in the Provinces continue in consequence of the extraordinary tax of 45 cent imes imposed by the Provisional Government. The French Government on the 7th received des. patches from Arno, the Minister at Berlin, offi cially announcing Austria's acceptance of the me ditation of France and England, in the settlement of the Italian question. A sharp correspondence has taken place between Gen. Cavaignec and Changerier, on acccunt of a defection of the National Guard, only e small por tion of each division appearing on the Sunday pa. rades. Ledru Rollin is preparing to start a new paper in opposition to La Reform. ITALY.—Accounts from Italy represent the whole country to be greatly excited• Tumults had ocour red at Genoa and at Leghorn. The difficulties that had taken place at Rome have been suppressed. At Turin, on the 24 inst., the Austrians having enforced a contribution of 40,000 florins on the ci tizens, payable in four hours, and the AIM not being forthcoming commenced to pillage the city. The inhabitants, encouraged by the patriotic defence of Bologna, rung the tocsin and commenced a fearful battle, assisted by women and children, who Threw furniture out of the windows on their heads. The Austrians in the country hurried to their as sistance and the result of the struggle was not known. SCIILESSWIG AND HOLSTETN.—Schlesswig and Holstein have refused to acknowledge the Armis tice concluded by Prussia for the Getman Confed- cration. The Blockade of the Elbe and lids have been raised since the .5(11. The Prussia and Baltic ports are also free. AN ANCIENT PRESS.—The Leonard Town, Md., claims to have the oldest printing press in Mary. land. /Is statement runs thus :—But few of our readers arc aware, we expect, that the press upon which our little sheet is printed, is the oldest now in use in the United States, and probably in the world. Yet such is a fact. The press now in use by us has been in almost constant service for more than a hundred years Upon it was first printed 4, 771 e Maryland Gazdte," the earliest paper print. ed in the Province of Maryland, and one among the very first in America. Upon it, also, was printed the first volume of the laws of Maryland that ever appeared. It is constructed somewhat on the Rammage principle, and requires three pulls, though two were originally sufficient, to produce a goad impression. It is truly a venerable object and has afforded us matter for many an hour's pleas. ant reflection, and we shall be sorry, very sorry, indeed, when the time arrives for it to be removed from the place it has so lung occupied in our office. =l2 It is said that in 1804, according to the best es. timate That can be obtained, there were in existence only about 4,000,000 copies of the Bible. Now there are more than 30,000,000. In 1804 the Bi. b le bad been published in only 48 or 49 languages; in 1848 it existed in 136. In 1804 it was access'. blc in languages spoken by about 200,000,000 of men ; in 1847 it existed in tongues spoken by 600,. 000,000. During the last year 1,419,283 copies were issued by the British and Foreign Bible Soci eties alone-400,000 more than any year before, except 1845. The Chinese Repository contains a list of Prot estant Missionaries to the Chinese, 67 in number, of whom 13 are stationed at Hong Kong, 13 at Canton, 9at Amoy, 6 at Puchan, 9 at Ningpo, 15 at Shanghai, and 2in Siam. Of the whole num. ber, 43 aro supported by American Missionary So. oldies. 19 by English, two by a Missionary Society in China, 2 by a Swiss and two by a German Mis sionary Society. In this list the families of mis sionaries are not included. The new Synagogue in King street,Canterbury, England, is being erected on the site of the ancient house of the rodoubted Koight•Templars, once the unrelenting- foes of the persecuted Israelhes, but now themselves swept from the face of the earth, together with their house, which has thus given place, in the lapse of ages, to so singultrr a rever sion. rrAccoonts from Constantinople announwhe occurrence of a dreadful fire in tbst capital, Mach destroyed property to gle amount 0f.C800,000 star ling.

It has • been in, progress, in some, during the warm season, and under what are considered the most favorable circumstances•—lts fruits are such, as well as the mode in which it has proceeded, as to leave no doubt that the Holy Spirit has visited his people. II:TA beautiful Hebrew Synagogue was conse crated in Cincinnati last week. The Jews num ber about 3,000 in that city, and have three Syn agogues. Er' le Mormon Temple, at Nauvoo, has not ac tually been purchased for a Protestant Theological Seminary, as was reported, but only the refusal of it obtained, with a view to raise the means of pur chase among "Christians residing at the East." 12rIt is said, that on the suggestion of Prince Albert, the new two shilling pieces are to be called florins.

Dr. Pomeroy, of Bangor, lies been chosen Sec. rotary of the American Board of Missions, in the placed( the Rev. Mr. Greene, resigned, The Annual Convention of the New York Dio. crap will assemble on Wednesday next, in St. John's Chapel, in the city of New York. It is ex. peeled there will be some discussion on the subject of appropriating funds for the support of the sus. pended Bishop ; and also on the question of admit. ting colored churches into the convention. CONNECTION OF IDEAS. -A facetious old lady, de scribing the rambling sermons of her minister, said : If his text had the small-pox, his sermon would never catch it." An exchange says there have been many defini. Lions of a "gentleman," but the prettiest and most poetic is that given by a girl in New York :—" A gentleman," said she, "is a human being, combi. ring a woman's tenderness with a mares courage." Is your children have a cough, be sure to take them to some church on Sunday, where the coal gas will bring out the full strength of their lungs. A constant barking may keep awake some of ,the sleepy sinners. "Tom," said a drunkard to his friend, " where shall I find the poor linen'? I should like to see it." " My dear friend, continue in your present course a short time longer, and you will not need to ask the question," was the pointed reply. TAKING IT EASY.-A traveller in England observ. ing a peasant at work, and seeing that he was to. king it remarkably easy, said to him— "My friend, you don't appear to sweat any ?" "why, no, master, six shillings a week glint sweating wages." Goon MANNIM—Good manners arc the blossoms of good sense, and, it may be added, of good feel ing, too; for, if the law of kindness be written in the heart, it will lead to that disinterestedness in little as well as in great things—that desire to oblige, and attention to the gratification of others, which is the foundation of good manners. GETTING , OVER A DIITICULTY.—A countryman once brought a piece of board to an artist, with the request that he would paint upon it St. Chris. topher as large as life. "But." returned the artist, •'that board is much to small for that purpose." The countryman looked perplexed at this unexpee. led discovery. "That's a bad Job," said he ; " but lookee sir, ye can let his legs hang down over the edge of the board." 33According to the census of the Isthmus of Panama taken in consequence of the treaty con. eluded between the United States and New Grana da, it contains 132,208 inhabitants and 71 villages. Il3"The Liverpool Times states that with a view of putting a stop to the practice of palming copies for originals, a plan is in agitation for registering every picture that may be painted, and for affixing thereto a registration mark or stamp. THE UPPER AND LOWEis.!.. ::CLASSZS or SOCIETY.— Upon what - does this diitinction depend? Na ture is saidio be harmonious in all of her.iaws of production;,--The sa me parent treealways produces the same kind of fruit. The same class of quad rupeds alivays keep their dentity l in their tiffspring, and the [Annan family bylniture seem to follow the same rule, unless a voluntary change is effected by acts of the parentage. But in countries that stand prominent in the world, and give customs, habits and social laws to civilization, we behold monstro sities developing themselves. In the same family we see the oldest made a noble, a lord, a king, while the younger drop down to an inferior grade, and are known only as the lower classes; in the so cial scale. This, we know, depends upon human law, upon conventional agreement. Our ancestors, when they fled from oppression hosed upon such monstrosities, undertook to disenthral themselves, and began at once in the free woodsof wild Amer. ica, to talk about equality, equal rights to all men. And when nor government was instituted, we see the same spirit standing out in bold relief, in the bold declaration that no rank of nobility shall be allowed in a country where all men are born free and equal. In those days, men and women claimed to be, and felt that they were brothers and sisters in the great human family, and were ready to fra ternize, and live together as such under the spread. log branches of the tree of liberty that they plant• ed for their protection. But we degenerate eons and daughters of that no. ble.initidcd ancestry, have spurned their rich legs. cy, and feel most proud in displaying our own choice in borrowed characters of apes. America now has no nationality of character or manners, but is aping the habits and customs and manners and sentiments of others, whom our f.ithers and mothers in the infancy of this Republic, despised and abhorred as (teapots and tyrants. We now be. gin to divide society, and upon what grounds? Upon the same as they do in the countries we are aping—upon external circumstances, such as birth and wealth ! A young moan by chance gets wealth— gets married, and commences housekeeping with a wife who must sustain the dignity of their station ; his brother is a plain laboring man, and when the table is spread with the dainties and luxuries of aristocracy, the brother "must wait until the second table, as workmen ought not to sit at the same ta ble with people of true refinement !" ft is a most shameful and despisable fact, that people in our country arc making fools of them selves, simply because others have done so, and made the masses of society bow down and say that they are gods, and we will worship them on ac. count of their gold ! There are as many in Amer. lea to bow down and worship golden calves, as there were among the old larnenies, in the days of their folly and degeneracy- We have no objection to gold or wealth, but have an objection to its being made the test of distinction among men, or a des. pontiff) to crush down and trample over human nu ' lure with all the tender sensibilities and refined sympathies that live and burn in the soul and heart of many a person in the ranks of the poor! We most sincerely believe in an aristocracy of society—but we want a rational, humane, elevated one—one that is based upon good deeds, instead of money—where persons shall be exulted for their works, mental, moral, and physical ! The working classes, the honest, intellectual, moral, and humane, are the true nobility in the sight of common sense of Heaven.—" Let him that would be greatest," said the great Regenerator of the human family, "serreat meat." Let him do something that is generous, good, great, sublime in its character, and he shall be esteemed as great 7 IVe arc totally heart sick with the follies of this nation, and iu this day of revolution, we call upon the laboring classes, who are downtrodden and die. piscd, to arise, unit with a manly spirit, take an elevated stand, cultivate the mind, that the true impulses of humanity may beam forth with all their native lustre, and maintain the rights to which nnturc and nature's God entitle you!—Spirit of F 5 eedom. 4,164,428 GA 311ILINO.—.The arduous and perilous work of opening the eyes of the community to the horrible mysteries of Gambling was commenced some years since by J. 11. Green. who in boyhood and destitute orphanage had been forced by seeming necessity into a.soriation with gamblers, had been initiated into and ultimately become nn adept in their nefa. rions arts, and had thus aided in bringing many to ruin. At length disgusted, penitent, and self oh. horring, he forsook the guilty craft, made restitu. tion of his plunder. PO Ihr as he was able, united with a Christian Church, and commenced the work of opening the eyes of the nnintinted to the swind ling nature of the games, ostensibly of chance, by which gamblers despoil their Victims.--Having been some time engaged in the manufacture and sale of Playing Cards, lie knows and can prove that they arc almost or quite never honestly made— that the manufacturer is nearly always an necom. plice of the gamblers, and that all his cards are pri. vately marked so that he who has paid for the marking and procured them to be put in the market at low rates in order to force their sale and general use, can at all time. distinguish, by n glance at the backs, either the whole or all those most important in the genie he professes to play. Then, boxes from which cards arc dealt in the game styled Fare (a very common game ott which thousands after thousands are daily staked and quickly lost) are full of fraudulent devices, whereby the banker or dealer is enabled to give himself the winning cards whenever he thinks fit to do so. Add to this the immense advantages which an eye and a memory trained to incredible feats, whereby the thorough gambler knows from a glance the relative position of each card; a sense of touoli so exquisite tint he can soon distinguish each card by the edge alone; and a slight of hand so amazing that be can deal with apparent fairness to each player around the board precisely such u hand as he chooses. Thus, as between the practised gambler and the novice or honest player there is no fragment of chance hut a simple game of plunderer and plundered. Ho who plays with a gambler has no more chance of winning in the long.run than in an attempt to dig gold from the drifting sand, or distil it from the waters of the ocean. Mr. Green has steadily pursued for years the work of exposing Gambling throughout those sec. lions, where the vice is most prevalent; and hip representations have induced the Legislatures of several States to pass stringent and effective laws for its suppression. Ho has just planted himself on our City, fur a determined campaign.—N. Trib. une. The Catskill Mountains were whitened with Snow on Saturday morning last, which had Wien the previous night.

Sarn W FOWL; Sir: A sell. 01 gratitude to you, and of duty to the pub lic, prompts me to make the following statement. which. if of any service to you, is entirely at your disposal. It may have the effect to induce some other sufferers to make a trial of your invaluable medicine, which I can truly any, has literally snatched me front the grave, to which I was filet hastening. Last July I was attacked by a sudden cold, which resulted inn very severe cough, with violent pains in the side and chest. From that time I began to **mete away, notwithstanding I was tinder the treatmeut of skilful physicians. They prescribed for me in vain. I became so much reduced that soy'friends frankly told me that I must die. and that I was liable to do so at any hour. At this crisis ! heard of Wistar's Bal sam of Wild Cherry, by way of a neighbor, whose bfe had been saved by it., and immediately sent kr a bottle. The effect produced was indeed wonderful. My physi cian, one of the most respectable men in Boston, who had previously told me that a cure was hopeless, came in and I informed him what 1 had taken, and told him the good effects I had experienced. He examined the Bai lie/74 and told me to continue the use of it; since which time I have continued to improve daily; and the same physician who had given me up entirely, told me a few days since, that I might yet live for many years. I feel that I aim now recovered, and gaining strength everyday. MARY ROWE. No. 48 Union street, Boston, April 18, 1846. We can .cheerfully testify to the truth of the above statement.
