combined influence of alal harvest all over England an. I

All stocks, and every faple i going down except the

and improves. The tcuitde movement is jut in i's com
mencement. The first blovT ha been struck and in Ire
land, the agitator O'Connell is already using it for the pur
pose of opposition to the union. -
The Englih government seem? ti be in a st ite of alnrm,
and Sir Robert Peel is calling ca'dnet after cabinet, to de
liberate rn the opening of the poit and the lest means to
meet impending famine. Cotton is down coin is up and
the excitement caused by the tevuliion is increasing every
day. What the tesult may be, n j one can tell perhaps it
is the beginning of the end" of 1 he financiil and politcal
superstructure of England and Fiance.
Terrible Railway Revi-lmo? the railway mania has

b-inkruptcy to thousand.
Tho wreck cf foil one and of character which this tempo
rary insanity has produced, will te felt long aftr the causes
that piodured it have passed away. As a proof of the ex
tent to which this huge system of swindling his been c mi
ed, it miy be mentioned that even ladies weie not exempt
from it? influence. The female fiicnds and lelativcMif those
who pulled the wires of eeitain imposing puppet scheme,
were in the daily habit of haunting the purlieus and offices
of the shaie-brokers in the Metropolis, to watch the maiket,
in order ta tum their letters of allotments t the test ac
count ! One of the railway papers mention? a certain batch
of female speculators who contiived lo realize, by this kind
of chicanery, during the height of the mania, the astound
ing sum of 500,000.
Famine Expected ix England. Hitherto, the cycle of
the seasons has befii-U'leil Sir Robeit Perl. Four g iod har
rest in succession have filled his exchequerrilled the
ttonachs of the lieges made the nation prosperous the
people contented. Als ! the scene is changed the evil
day his come upon him, and has found him unprepaied to
face it. Famine gaunt, horiible, destroying famine seems
impending. Feai? have seized the pulie rnind
In Ireland mitters bok appalling in England gloomy.
The gianarie? of the continent aie exhausted. Ti e com
fields of the VUtu'a, the Danube, and the Elbe, aie barely
sufficient for the local wants of the inhabitants. The nation
is in commotion ; and the r.iy of ' Open the pott and let in
corn, duty free !" is heard, on all sides, leveibciated from
every part of the empiie.
The " pressure from without' ha made itelf heard in
Downing street ; an 1 faith in the sliding scale Peel's sli
ding scale is gone forever. A third of the potatoe crop in
Ireland is destroyed. The Government has sent scientific
piofessois to the scene of the mischief, and the awful truth
i? out that this large pntion of the people's fjod the escu
lent that Cobbett abhorred is unfit for use.
What is to be dne in this terrible, this unlooked fur
emergency? Open the ports ! " i the exclamation, ar.d
there stand? the shivering Premier, like a teed in th? wind,
paralyzed between aflVcti n for his sliding scale and the
horrors of public famine. There he is, balancing the p.os
and con?. Hut necessity i? superior to consistency, supeii.tr
even lo law. The poits must be opened.
0Connell, who assumes to be the tiibune of the Iiish
people, goes beyond this. He demands a grant of pulblic
money, to the extent of a million and a half, tobe extended
jn the purchase of food he calls for a tax of fifty per cent,
on the absentee?, ar.d a tax of ten er cent, on the residents

The sliding scale that cunning scheme ti make fjod ar
tificially dear is in the ciiis of it? fite. Swept away now, j
a? it will be, its re-imposition, with the views which the (
public enteitain, atid which conservative aid even agiicul- !
lu-ral membeis have tardily adopted, will De round impossi

Fiora .wo Cai.?. The Corn maiket continues to rise,
and the aveiages to dccicae a little ; but t'tc "jutno" in the
scale by n mean? indicates the actual price which good
Wheal realizes. The quantity of indilferenl or bid giaiu
which is thrown upon the maiket keep? up the averages
if such a misnomer can be applied to a scheme which very
unfairly leprcsents the actual piice of the aiticie. This
optning of the port? is a qieti on so import in t in itself, not
only as it affects the com trade, but what is of far gi eater
Consequence, a it aflects the general interests of the coun
try, that it absorbs every o'hei topic at the present m ment.
A Cabinet Council wa? htld on Fit lay, at the house of
Sir Robert Peel, as the Picmier could not leave his home,
owing to an attack of gout in the fot. At this meeting the
qncstion cf the openirgof the ports was no doubt discussed in
all ita beaiinz. and expectation was n the qui vice to know
the result. Another Cabinet Cturcil wis held at Sil R bt.
Peel's houce the f llowing day, and the result of this, as of
the preceding meeting, still remain? a mystery. People
fcave been auxi"Usly looking to the Loadm Gaze'te, expect
ing to fee an official intimation of the (lovtrnment polity,
but they have locked In vain.
The great hope is in the Uni'el States and Cana'.a. The
proof of the scarcity exist? in the fact, that mo-t of the
continental rowers have alieady o; et e 1 their poits for the
self-same otject, and it i justly sai l, "Why should England
be less cor.'ideia'e for its citizens than are the continental
juler for their ?"
The gieat fact in all pnbibility i?, that Teel i unwilling
to act till he i? aimed with the stiongcst possible n a ns
fjr doing so ; and in oider to put cavil out of the question,
he is said to be waiting for the lepoit of the scientific com
missioners, whom he has sent to liciand t investigate the
pot a toe disease. Some say tht Pajliament will be inointdi
ately summoned U coosiJer what ought to be djnc in the
present emergency.
A Privy Council must be called ere the por's can be open
ed, and a? no announcement of such a meeting has yet been
made, sjme days, it i? probable, may elap-e before the poli
cy of the Cabinet will be mide public. The state of thin?
in thee kingtum? at the p:esent time, with the ceitamty of
"bread stuff" coming in fiee, or at the lowest nominal du
ty, must have a con-iderable effect on the piice of those
commodities in the United States and Canadian wiarket?.
London Monet Market, Nov. 5 The step which the
Bank of Knzland took, v noticed in oir last paper, of rai
ir.g the interest of money, pioduced speedily a tiansition of
a very extraoidinary nature upon the share maiket, and on
the funds geneially ; for more than a week the maiket con
tinued to fall daily the Sciip of new Railways, so much in
favor by r eedy speculators, went down, in many instances,
fiom a high premium to par and nominal quotations, at
which there aie no buyers.
The market was in a short spoce cleared of many schemes
that never ought t have seen the light, and piobibly will
now never be quoted in the market again. Although the
substantial lines suffered in some degree alorg with the rest,
yet they hare since recovered entuely, and in some in
stances, obtained an advance; and it is agreed on all hands
that the market is more healthy. The settling took place
n Saturday, and there was, as might be exoee'ed, several
. defaulteis on the Exchange, amounting to 70,000 or XsO,
000. Some failure have also taken place to the provincial
market, and it is probable that at their next settlement more
will occur.
France. The announcement of the resignation of the
brave old veteran Soult appears to be Liscd on truth. At
his advanced age, repose and letiiment would well befit
him, so that the old soldier, like the Roman in the capital,
should be enabled to adjust his mantle before the closing
tcene of his cvenUul caieer.
Discovery of the Magnetic Poles. The Cincin
nati Chronicle has the following :
A scientific gentleman, who was present at Dr
Locke's lecture on Mondiy evening, Fays it was re
markably interesting. The subject was elcctro-tnng-
netism, heat, and their kindred topics. Among other
things, he mentioned the discoveries he had made and
thelict accumulated in regard to the magnetic poles,
s.nJ the line of greatest intcnsitv. Uns has been a
a subject of examination with him for several years
He considers now that the magnetic poles are discov
cretl at least their immediate locality. His views on
this subject have been confirmed by other observers,
one of the magnetic poles is in Siberia and another in
the northern part of America. The line of greatest
intensity is near the shores of Lake superior."
rv-r-Wiro Kit.led Tecc Mj-kh ? In a nu-nber of
Giles's Register," dated Dec. SI, 1814, we find the
following paragraph :
Mr. Clay. A London paper says that Mr. Clay,
(our Minister at Ghent) was the man who killed
Tecumseh, and that he cut several razor trops out of
his back after he was dead.
The Railway Mania in England has rendered it
necessary for the London Times to print an extra of
a whole sheet daily, which is covered with advertise
ments of railway projects. The aggregate cost of
theae advertisements is said to be ten thousand dollars
a day. The Times was stated a year ago to be worth
three hundred thousand dollars a year.

Whereas, this Convention looks upon the fysteni of
nominating all candidates fur public ollices by regular
Conventions emanating from tho people themselves, o
the only truo democratic coiitm, and the one by which
our strength enn be rendered most available, and union
and harmony best preserved in our ranks : Therefore,
Hesolttd, That this Convention appoint a sufikient
number of delegates to represent AIIhm county in the
Democratic State Convention to be held at Indianapolis
on the Sth January next.
liesulccif, T hat ibis Convention has undiminished con
fidetire in the dilical integrity and ability of our pres
ent effident Governor, lion, j ami s Whitcomb. The
valuable services lie rendered to the democratic cause,
during the canvass of Iril'., did much towards elevating
our Stale to the proud emiuc-iice she now occupies nmeng
the democratic States of the Union, and havo justly en
deared hiui to the demociacy of the Slate.
Resolted, That oor delegates be instructed to vote for
Hon. James Whitcomb, ns ihe first choice of the democ
racy of Allen county, for the ollire of Governor J pro
vided he will content to be a candidate ; and his sen ices
have not been called for by his follow citizens to occupy
a higher and more Important station in the Senate of the
Coited Slates.
lirsolccd. That the noble stand taken by our Lieuten
ant Governor, Hon. JtssK I). HniGiiT, in "taking the re
sponsibility" of preventing the whins in the Legislature
from from f ireing on the Slate an U. S. Senator whose
opinions ami course on all national questions would have
been in direct opposition to those of the majority of the
citizens of the Slate, merits the approbation of every
good citizen.
llesolced. That Hon. Josse I). Bright is the first choice
of the democracy of this county for re-eb-riioii to the
station be now occupies; provided, .Mr. Whitcomb In:
the candidate tor Governor; otherwise Jesso I). IJright
is our choice for Governor unles his services have pre
viously been required by our friends to represent the
State of Indiana in the Senate of the United Slates.
rtrsoltedy That our delegates be instructed to endeavor
to select such men for a State Central Committee ns will
faithfully discharge the duties imposed on them, and will
remember that the object of their appointment is, to fur
ther the interests of the party rather than their own.
Hcsulrcd, That the experience of the present season,
when we have witnessed the price of w beat, while de
pending on the niuch-boated-of w hig ''home market"
dow n to T0 cents, and again rising to 75 cents when a
demand arose fr a foreign supply, proves that the prom
ised home-market of the whig of 141 is entitled to no
morp dependence than their "rtro dollars a day and roast
lerf;' of 1-M0.
llesolrtd. That we view a Protective Tariff ns nn in
genious scheme to enrich the wealthy eastern manufac
turers at the expense of poor western farmers, without
the latter receiving any advantage ns an equivalent, and
we therefore trust our democratic President will recom
mend to Congress to abandon the system, as nnti-republi-can,
and unjust and oppressive to a large majority of the
citizens of the Union ; and that such recommendation
may be promptly responded to by every democrat in
lUsolrctl, That we expect the present Legislature to
nominate one of our best men for U. S. Senator, and
when nominated that there will bo no division In our
ranksforperson.il or local considerations; and that our
Senator be instructed to support the candidate thin nom
inated, as the first, the last, and the only choice of Allen
Winch were severally read, and unanimously adopted.
Un motion, the following were appointed delegates to
attend the State Convention :
William Uockhill, Joseph Sinrlear, IVter Iviver, Wil

On motion,
llesolred, That as the next August election will be one
of the utmost importance to the welfare of the State, in
asmuch as a Governor will have to be elected, on whose
wisdom and judgment much depends ; therefore, the va
rious township committees in Allen county be requested
to use every exertion to have the democratic loice in
their evcnl townships properly organized.
llcsjlccd, That we recommend a convention be held
next spring lo nominate candidates for the various county
offices, and that we pledge ourselves not to support any
candidate except those regularly nominated by such de
mociatie. convention ; 3ml rannot recognize any man as
a democrat who will run for any office in opposition to

cing disunion in our ranks, defeat our efiorts, and secure
the election of whig officers in this democratic county.
On motion,
Resolced, That the proceedings of this convention be

Mr. Calhoun's Speech,
The Hon. gentleman, in $ome general remark, op
plauded the object of the Convention. He ppoke of the
obstruction to co.nmerce in our Western rivers, and th
disastrous navigation round Florida, calling attention t
the propped railroads to connect the Mississippi with tue
South Atlantic States. He thus continued :

railroad system is the only sure ami uninterrupted means
of connection therewith, end that for the six months in
the year, when, from oppis te causes, either ice, or

qupstion and that is, hoto far we ma invoke the aid of

the General Government ? Un this point, gentlemen, I
an. aware there is a diversity of opinion. It is well
known that I am for a rigid construction of our Consti
tution. I will not, nav I would scoin to take this occa

than these -mid here I would betr all Mi art with fitrbear-

scruple be an untouched point. 1 our circular of last

to fjree any opinions on any gentleman present. Uut
on" Ljbject may incidentally demand our consideration on
one article of duty, which may perhaps be discussed
without entering into the province of Legislative lulls,
ami which has an immediate bearing on the present topic.

R f. m a n k a n l k Csv. A physician in our citv inform
us that a few diys since he removed a needle from the
spine in the region of ihe inferior cervicle vertebrae, which
had lain in the fl.-sh for upwaidd of seven years and was
found embedded in a sack, or as ihe doctors say, cist. The
needle penetrated the child at the oge of four months, ai.d
first entered the acromion process of the scapula, or shoul
der. From this place, by its specific gravity, it had made
its wny along the fi!rcs of ihe muscles to the place fiom
which it was extracted. Prom the entrance of this sub
stance at the child's shoulder up to the time of its extrac
tion, the arm on the side atf. cled was constantly in a stale
of partiil paralysis, and had been treated for a longitudi
nal fracture of the humorus, or, that part of the arm from
ihe elbow to the shoulder ! The physician who gives u
this information sts'en, that whi'e examining the child for
the purpose of a-c rtaining the c-msc of tho partial paraly
sis of the arm, found on trncu.g the spinal column, a tu
mor in the above region, which once solved the prob
lem and showed the real cause .f all the sulleiings of the
child during so many years. From thi. fact of the arm be
ing paruliztd ever after a fall it received from the bed, ii
is supposed ihat the neetlle must huve been in the csrpe
and penetrated the f-houldrr at that time. We give place
to this case to show the cood and great results arising
from closo and ih -ughiful examinxtion by physicians and
the actual necessity of the profession stul ing the di"g

accidentally introduced a line sewing needle into her
hand, which was broken off, lea ing about half its
Icnuth between the thumb and fore-rtnger. in a direc
tion towards the middle or palm of the left hand. A
physician was requested to extract it, Lut as then-
was so httle pain or inconvenience arising trom n.
he advised to let it remain, rather than cut amon:
the tendons for it. In a very few days all trouble
and annrchension were over in reuard to it. About
the last of September, she ffdt some pi in in the right
side of the abdomen and jut ab.ne the hip, which
she conceived to be a spa-m, nnd began rubbing il
with her hand, when directly the needb came foith
and was extracted. The broken point was about 2 of
an inch in length, and its line p 1 s!i had suffered but
little from crrusion. The comsj which the needle
took in making this circuitous journey, is entirely
unknown to her. The dis.ance it travelled in about
three months ( oubl not be much less than four feet,
