Current Revenue of the Government
The current receipts of the government
from customs and internal revenue are unusu
ally large. The income from internal reve

The customs revenue, through the single
port of New-York, is this week up to a dai
ly average of nearly $600,000 in coin; on
one day it reached 735,500, or, on the bas
ot gold at 145, equal to $1,060,475 in cm

Mr. Greeley's volume is.a valuable con-
contribution to our political history.
His- intimate knowledge of our poli
tics and instinctive . sympathy with the
far-reaching scope of our institutions, ad
mirably- fitted him for the task. Ho is
clear, concise, and.accurate, honestly stri
ving after the truthj while his judicious
Preface shows that ho appreciates fully
the difficulties that beset whoever seeks
to find it. If none of his readers will be
surprised to find his work that of an able
man, there are many who will not expect
it to be, as it is, that of a fair-minded one.
He writes without passion, making due
allowance for human nature in the South
as well as the North, and does not waste
his strength, as is the manner of fanatics,
in fighting immaginary giants while a real
enemy is in the field. Tracing Secession to
its twin sources in Slavery and the doc
trine of State Rights, and simply sustain
ing his statement of fact by citation from
cotemporary documents and speeches, he
has made the plainest, and for the very
reason, we think, the strongest argument
that has been put forth on the national
side of the questiou at issue in our civil
war. Above all, he is ready to allow
those virtues in the character of the
Southern people whose existence alone
makes reunion desirable or possible. It
is not a little singular, that while slavery
has been for nearly eighty years the one
root of bitterness in our politics, the gen
eral knowledge of its history should be
so superficial. Abolitionism has been so
persistently represented as the disturbing
element which threatened the permanence
of our Union, that mere repetition has at
last become a conviction with that large
class of minds with which a conclusion is
valuable exactly in proportion as it saves
mental labor. Mr. Greeley's chronologi
cal uarrative is an excellent corrective of
this delusion, and his tough little facts,
driven firmly home, will serve to spike
this Parrott battery, and render it harm
less for the future.
This is eminently a work which no one
who desires to keep pace with our Coun
try's History should be without.

POR THE JEFFERSONIAN.
A SeriouJ Adventure.
Canadensis, Monroe Co., Pa.,
September 5th 1865.
Dear Sir t One day during last week
Mr. Joseph JJrovrn. who resides near
"Goose Pond," Pike County, started in
company with another man in the direc
tion of "Mud Run," w ith the intention . of
cutting out a road. They separated from
each other, taking different directions.
Mr. Brown had proceeded but a short
distance before he came upon an old road,
and was not a-little surprised at the dis
covery of a young "Cub," which.he found
no trouble in capturing, and thought to
take it home. After carrying it a short
distance, it proved to be quite heavy, be
ing fat, Mr. Brown coucluded to dispatch
him with his pocket knife j and, while at
tempting to cut its throat, the "Cub" gave
a sudden cry. which soon brought the
mother to the spot,, barely giving Mr
Brown time to climb the nearest small
tree, closely pursued by the infuriated
mother-, who tried first to climb the tree,
but failing in this, attempted to shake
him off. Mr. B. in the meantime called
vigorously to his companion, but he fail
ed to hear. While in this dilcma, his
fears were heightened by the appearance
of the "male Bear," joining with the
mother in doubly furious attempts to dis
lodge him. Finding climbing and sha
king vain, they resorted vigorously to
gnawing the tree down, which they would
certainly have accomplished were it not
for the timely appearance of Mr. B.'s dog
in answer to his anxious calls. At the
sight of the dog the Bears left the tree
and gave chase, affording Mr. B. a chance
for escape, which he improved rather
hastily and soon succeeded in finding his
companion. They returned at once to
the scene of action, to find not the Bears
but the dog, stretched out, badly mangled
but not dead. After a vain search for
the Bears, Mr. B. carried his dog home
fully convinced that he had seen a "JBar."
At latest advices the Dog was still living
and Jo. vows he shall have his tenderest
care so long as he may live.
P. S. The above is Mr. B.'s statement
as corroborated by his companion.
I am, very respectfully,
RUFUS P. NORTHROP.

The Werz Trial. !
Washington, Saturday, Sept. 2, 1865.
The Wirz Military Commission reas
William O. S. Belcher testified that he
had served in the 10th Illinois Cavalry,
and was a prisoner at Andersonville from
the 8th of March until September, 18b4;
he thought that Capt. Wirz assumed
command about the 1st of April ; on one
occasion Wirz came into the stockade,
when a cripple, walking on crutchees,
approached and asked to go outside ; the
request was refused, and the cripple said
he would rather be shot than stay there :
the witness soon heard Wirz holloa to the
sentinel, "tell that man if he did not not
go back, he would shoot him : the man
did not return, when the sentinel fired
and shot him in the jaw j the cripple was
known by the name ot "Uhickaniauga :
Wirz afterward threatened to shoot the
other men if they did not go away : on
another occasion, while the prisoners were
being divided into squads of hundreds,
one of the men, owing to sickness, did
not fall in, and Wirz threatened to shoot
him, and did shoot him :. the ball went
through the man's hat: the prisoners
were kept in the sun all day, and were
not allowed to procure water : if the squad
could not give a satisfactory account of
any one of their missing number, they
were deprived of their rations ; this was
the case for three days early in July ;
there was not sufficient room in the pri
son, scarcely enough for men to stand
upon ; the limits were enlarged on the
north side ; there were 42,000 prisoners
there at one time; he had heard Wirz say
he was killing more "Yankees" than those
who were serving at the front ; witness
had seen 25 or 30 men shot over the dead
line and others fired into who were not
over the dead line
Cross-examined by the defense Q.
Were there not desperadoes there men
who would steal and commit other of
fenses ; and was not the cripple to whom
you referred one of them 1 A. There
were troublesome characters there, but I
don t know whether that man belonged
to them or notj I don't think that a crip-
pie on a crutch was a good man to steal.
During a further examination, the wit-
ncss spoke of a man at whom the sentinel

he witness gave various instances of
men being shot: one was shot while he
was in his tent, for merely stretching his
arm beyond the dead-line ; another was the columns daily of any paper in the country,
shot at for treading over the line ; he f tho exclusion of everything else. Believ

The Coal Trade.
The Schuylkill coal region is sending
forward an immense coal tunnage. The
two carrying companies, the Reading
Railroad and the Schuylkill Navigation,
brought down, tor the week ending on
Thursday, 137,291 tuns 87,4G8 by-the
road, and 49,733 by the canal. As com
pared with corresponding week last year,
the road increased its tunnage 10,917
tuns, and the canal its tunnage 21,524
tuns. The ousiness was, no doubt, stim
ulated by the semi-official announcement
previously made that the tolls and freight
charges would be increased on the 1st
instant. This, we believe, has been done,
and as a consequence wue retail price of
coal in this city has advanced from 50
cents 1 per tun. Lehigh prepared coal
is now quoted at about 510 the gross tun,
and 9 the short tun of 2,000 pounds.
Schuylkill coal sells at about 51 per tun
below the prices ot Lienign coal, it is
hardly probable that the coal tunnage
will be so heavy the current week as it
was the last. The effort to put the larg
est amount of coal possible in the market
before prices advanced will naturally tend
to lessen the movement immediately af
ter the advance has taken place. The
retail demand, wnicn nas been very ac
tive for a week or two past, from the same
cause, is also Jikely to fall off a little ;
though, with the general apprehension
entertained that there win be no over
production of coal this year, it is probable
the demand for coal henceforth to the
end of the season will be equal to the
supply, a fact that will tend to keep up
if not advance, prices. Philadelphia
At no time within our recollection has
thore been such a succession of great frauds
as during the past three or four months,
Following each other so rapidly that there

lowed in their wake. Just fflance at the

The abovc relates only t0 one class exci"

so cembmcd with other substances of still
greater attractive power as to afford an ef
fectual antidote for diseases Sarsaparilla ii
reputed to cure. Such a remedy fs surely
wanted by those who suffer from Strufirow?
complaints, and that one which will nccom'-'
pnsn tneir cure must prove, as this has of
immense service to this large class or our
afilicted fellow-citizens. How completely

Eruptions, St. Anthony's Fiie, Rose or
Erysipelas, Tetter or Salt Rheum, Scald
Head, Ringworm, &c.

from the system by the prolonged use ot this
Sarsaparillo, and the patient is left in com
Female Diseases ore caused by Scrofula
in the blood, and are often eoon cured
by this Extract of Sarsaparilln.
Do notdiscard this invaluable medicine,. b&

thing pretending to be Sarsaparilla, whilo
it was not. When you have used Ayer'
