THE REBELLION IS RUSSIA THE CHAR
ACTER OF THE EMPEROR.
St. PcTERSBuno, Sept. 10, 1848.
We havo just had a little insurrection, and
even barricades. The followinff are the dc
tails : The cholera had diminished in inten
sity, but at the commencement of last week
it suddenly broke out anew, and the number
of neivr cases and deaths increased daily in
an alarming manner. As it was especially
among the inferior classes that the diseases
made victims, it became rumored that the
noble and the rich, in order to get" rid of the
poor, had engaged the physicians to pive
poisoned modicine to those attacked. This
rumor becoming generally credited, the in
ferior classes became so irritated that they
insulted physicians and all well dresses per
sons in the streets. On Wednesday last, as
semblages took place on tho Newa Prospect.
The police called out the armed force, and
the mob constrticlod throe barricades. At
the momemt the troops wero about to com
mence tho attack tho Emperor arrived on
horseback, accompanied by a single aid-decamp.
His Majesty ordered tho troops to re
tire a little, and alighted from his horse. lie
. . . . . ... .
a sign that he would harrangue Ilia insur
gents, on seeing the Czar, knelt down and
joined tho hands, as if about to pray.
'-The cholera, my children," said tho Em
peror, "is a chastisement which God inflicts
on men, and which must be submitted to
with resignation. All the rumors of poison
ing are falsehoods, invented by tho malevo
lent and enemies of tho people."
Two of tho insurgents commenced a reply
tho Emperor, but his Majesty interrupted
them,- and told the other insurgents to arrest
them. Tho Emperor then ordered tho troops
to wilMraw to their barracks, and he withdrew.-
The insurgents immediately arrested
their fww companions, and gave them up to
the police ; after which they demolished the
barricades and peacefully dispersed. Ami
so ended this rebellion, which has not left a
trace behind. .
THE POSTMASTER GENERAL O.N SUNDAY
MAILS.
Ill reply to a letter from Rev. Mr. Lloyd,
of Phelps, N. Y., the Hon. Cavo Johnson,
Postmaster General, returned tho following
answer, which we copy from the N. Y. Ob
server :
I should be gratified to see the transporta
tion of the mails, as well as every other spe
cies of labor rest on the Sabbath. But tho
Postmaster General is the agent of the public
It is his duty to make and carry out, as far
a. is his power, such mail arrangements as
tho wishes and interests of the public re
quire. Tho Department does not set on foot
of its own will any Sabbath mails, irrespec
tive of the demands and necessities of the
community ; and where it is obliged to re
quire such service in compliance with such
necessities and demands, it is done, so far as
my personal preferences are involved, with
a feeling of regret. This regret, however,
caauot be indulged in so far as to set aside
the known wishes and interests of the pub
lic Where the stated means of conveyance on
mail routes aie kept in operation upon the
fabbath, whether the mails 'be sent or not,
znuera4ieoveuiencp, and innch individual
loss and' i'njnry would inevitably result uuless
the mails be despatched by them. In such
cases it is unquestionably the duty of the
Department to forward the mails on Sunday,
When the proprietors are disposed to with
draw these means of conveyance on that
day, and there is no likelihood of others be
ing substituted, so as to give facilities to A
few to the disadvantage and injury of the ma
ny, 1' take pleasure in acceding to the arrange
ment so far as the mails are concerned, as
has lately been done upon the line of railroad
between-Albany and BufTulo, following the
example aer by the New York and Boston
and the Boston and 'Albany lines.
The means oommnnicatios are never with
drawn by the proprietors, but upon the best
evidence tliat the publie, or a large majority
of it, are willing to dispense with them. And
although my own feelings, under the influ
ence of the considerations alluded to in your
letter, are gratified by the suppression of the
Sabbath mails, my officio) action in sanction
ing i, is founded solely upon the conviction
that their withdrawal is in such oases -warranted
)y, the. general consent of the public.

THE RESILT IN THE COt'NTV.
The elections in this County havo resulted
in the election of the democratic nominees,
by majorities much reduced as compared
with the result in 1841. The majority for
Longstreth for Governor is 598. In 1844
Shunks majority was 886. Gen. Petriken's
majority for Congress is 453. In 1844 it was
700. E. Y. Blight's majority for Senator is
511. Geo. A. Frit-k's majority for Assembly
is 622. Mr. Covert is elected by a majority of
417. He was sustained at home, and will no
doubt make an excellent officer. Mr. Farns
worth was elected Prothonotary without op
position. His attention to his duties and his
obliging disposition, has made him many
friends. The office of Register & Recorder,
was severely contested between Mr. Pursel,
the regular candidate, and Mr. Irwin, volun
teer. Mr. Irwin is elected by a majority of
223. Mr. t'has. Weaver was elected by a
liamlhome majority over his whig opponent,
a very clever man, who was not idle during
W- Tlw, .lt.- -AS-. . "
for Coroner, and Mr. Caul the Auditor, were
elected without opposition.
The greatest struggle was probably for the
Senate, and haJ that portion of the demo
cratic party, in the upper end, who are al
ways finding fault with the democracy in this
quarter, been as true as their professions,
Mr. Blight's majority would have been not
less than one thousand more than enough to
elect him. This shameless defection by the
would-be Simon Pures of the party, will no
doubt meet with its proper reward.
ELECTION RETURNS.
We have the returns of all, but about
twelve small counties, in tho state. Esti
mating these counties by the vote of 1817,
Gov. Johnston is elected by u majority of
about 2,000 Wilmot's majority is 2D00 in
Bradford und Susquehanne.
In Philadelphia the whigs have gained a
Congressman in place of Brown. They
have alsogained eight members. The whigs
Mill probably have a majority on joint bal
lot. Chester Butler, is re-elected to Con
gress. Puintcr, (democrat,) for Canal Commif
sioiR-r, runs ahead of Longstreth, and may
be elected.
THE RESILT AND ITS, CAUSES.
The result of the elections throughout
the State, will, no doubt, mortify as well
as surprise many. To us, we confess, the
result was not wholly unexpected, and
therelore not surprising. We have thought,
and we have said, foryears past, that the in.
evitable tendency of the policy pursued by
those in power, must necessarily bring a.
bout such a result. The people of Pennsyl
vania are emphatically an industrious and
working people, and it is therefore natural
to suppose that they would be jealous of
their rights in protecting that industry.
The sudden and shameless desertion of those
who professed to be governed by the prin.
ciplosofthe tariff of 1842, it now every
day made more and more apparent. This
together with the lrec soil principle, which
naturally finds a response in the breast of
every Pennsylvanian, and the bad policy,
of truckling to the political interests of the
South, are now made manifest.

of the London News, writing from Paris,
says:
Jt would appear as if the cholera, which
has been making surb ravages in thenoith of
Europe, has at length reached Paris. . Yester
Jay and to-day several cases have appeared,
which are said to have all the symptoms ol
Asiatio cholera, hut in a mild shape. A me
dical gentleman informs me that he has two
cases of what he calls cholera asphyxia, and
that in both eases the patients are likely to
recover.

JOUNKAL.
Lawhers om Kissiso.The Provideiiei
Journal of Monday contains report of th
trial of John D inahiie for an assault with at-
attempt to kiss one Mary Gorman, whom h
alleges is hi second cousin. The Journal
says that the evidence gave rise to some very
interesting questions of law, especially to
young men.
"The counsel for Mrs. Gorman did hot
contend that the usual proposal to kiss s lady
was an assault ; but the parties should before
preceding to extremities, ascertain beyond
any reasonable doubt that the lady would no'
be unaccommodating, and especially should
forbear from such attempts in the presence of
a third pirtv. All men, especially younsr
tim, wtitl.l be justifin I in usinz reasonable
lilisrence in ascertaining thn disposition of
th htdv under such circumstances, but he
must be careful not to prpss his suit after i'
became apparent that his fon Inpss was not
reciprocated. Cnrrey, counel for J. Dunahnr,
did not fully copcur with this view of the
law, bu contended that the transaction wa
all in cool nature, us far as John was con
cerned 'hat Mrs. Corman was his second
cousii, nnd there was no intention of com
mitting nn assault on his part.
The Court found John gui'M- nnd fined
him 1 and costs. The fart that Mrs. Gor
man was the second cousin of John was not
considered a sufficient justification for his
persisting in the prosciiion of his desire.
The court crnve no opinion as to what would
have been their decifinn if 'he parties had
been first cousirs, nr if the kiss had been
stolen before the lady had objected. With
out meaning to commit ourselves fully on so
important a question, we would intima'e the
opinion that mich a state of facts would be a
perfect justification."
