Philadelphia, June 26. In the United
States Court to-day a petition was presented
applying for injunction to restrain the
Wheeling bridge company from constructing
said bridge over the Ohio river, at the same
elevation as the old one alleging that it is
the intention of the company to use the sus
pended cables left by the storm to construct
a new bridge at the 6ame height. It is also
alleged that the navigation of the river
would be greatly obstructed.
The bill was accompanied by affidavits
setting forth the facts, and from its tenor,
seems to be a bill to execute the former decree
of the Supreme Court, with an order to stay
the construction of the .bridge m the mean
time. The injunction was granted, with an
order for the work to be 6tayed. The validi
ty of the act of Congress making the bridge
a post-route will now come up.
Washington, June 27. Col. Benton's
speech on the Gadsden Treaty is the theme of
conversation. It produced a great sensation
in the House, and he does not stand " soli
tary and alone" in opposition to the appro
priation for the treaty, but the appropriation
will pass notwithstanding. The Territorial
appointments will stick a little. The rumor
that the nominee for Governor of Kansas is
Freesoilish gains credence among Southern
Senators. Mr. Douglas urged the appoint
ment of a particular friend, and was denied.
Some trouble in that quarter may also be ex
pected. President Pierce left Old Point Comfort
this morning on his return to this city.

The People's Medical Lighthouse: By
H. K. Root, A. M., M. D. This is truly a
remarkable and an original publication, and
we have examined it sufficiently to believe
that it is calculated to be useful to all who
will study its pages. Perhaps we can not
do better than to copy the following notice
of the work from the Mail, as the writer of
the note is known and esteemed by most of
our people :
A Well Merited Compliment. The fol
lowing letter is from the pen of one of our
most worthy divines, who, we regret to say,
lias recently been necessitated to resign his
office as chaplain of the house of correction,
bicause of ill-health:
Dr. H. K. Root Sir : I have given " The
People's Medical Lighthouse'' a candid, care
ful and thorough examination, and I am hap
py to say, that it has enlightened, improved
and edified me much in the perusal. The
information given is highly valuable ; the
advice most timely and important, in respect
to both the physical and moral well-being of
individuals and communities; and the sol
ernn warnings acainst the hidden, the com
won, the fashionable, and the alarmingly
prevalent vices of the day, are certainly very
seasonable, necessary, and most loudly called
for. The candid, fearless, Christian, and able
manner in which vou have discussed the
subject of Health and Morals, the closely
wedded connection with their important
bearings and extensive results, entitles you
to great credit ps an intelligent physician,
and as a devoted Christian philanthropist.
The truly valuable instructions, counsels,
and admonitions here given to the public, if
received and improved as they should be,
will conduce greatly to thesuppession ot the
corrupting and alarmingly destructive vices
of the 6exes; will operate as powerful pre
ventives of the many moral and physical
maladies and contagions which are not only
threatening, but actually destroying hosts of
our fellow beings; and I have no cfoubt the
sound principles here advocated, will con
tribute greatly to advance the true interests
of the health and morals of the community.
Every family would do well to take the
earliest opportunity to purchase this valua
ble work ; follow the light it sheds on the
important subjects on which it treats ; and
thereby avoid the evils and secure the bles
sings consequent on a careful conformity to
jts valuable instructions.

Good Investment. A gentleman in this
city one year ago bought three Shanghai
hens and a rooster for $25.00. For the eggs,
and chickens raised, he has realized $140 in
cash, besides drawing a premium at an agri
cultural Fair of $4. One pair of the chick
ens was sold for $15. O. S. Journal.
