Look to thh Notes you hkcbivb.?la the
present state of affairs it would be well for
our citizens not to receive the notes of the
People's iiank, P&tersun, N. J.; the Commer
cial Hank, Perth Auiboy, N. J.; the Farmer*
& Mechanics' Bank, New Brunswick, N. J.;
the Union Bank, Dover, N. J-; and tho Salis
bury Bank, Md.
The Baltimore Clipper of this morning says:
"Tho Farmers' & Mechanics' Bank of New
Jersey has no? faileil; and we have no positive
continuation of the report of the failuro of the
Bank of Salisbury, its circulation is said to
be about $20,000."
A note from J. Thompson, of the New York
Rank Reporter, says:
" in order to save the publio fVom loss and
inoonvenionoe, 1 would state that tbe following
banks havo not failed?their notes are bought,
and will oontinuo to be bought, at ? per cent,
"Government Stock Bank, Michigan; Bank
of America, New Jersey; Ocean Bank, do.;
Atlantio Bank, do.; Merchants' Bank, do.;
Farmers' Bank, do.; Delaware and Hudson,
do. Nor do I believe that any New York banks,
either in the country or city, will fail.
"Owing to the scarcity of money, the New
York brokers of uncurrent l'unds havo raised
the rates of discount?Jersey currency to 1 per
oent., Western Ne.v York ourrency 1 per cent.,
and Eastern currcncy J, and old established
banka of the eastern put of this State to ? per
cont. Even at these rates some few brokers
have ceased buying."
Ltkoh Law.?The following is said to be
copied from the Richmond Times:
"On the 13th inst., the Vigilance Committee
of the county of Grayson in this State arrejtfd
a man named John Cornutt, [a friend and fol
lower of Bacon, tbe Ohio abolitionist,] and after
examining the evidence against him, required
him to renounoe his abolition sontiments. This
Cornutt refused todo; thereupon he was etripped,
tiea t? * tree, and whippod. After receiving
a dozen stripCf. he caved in, and promised not
only to reoant, but to sell his property in the
county, [consisting of land and negroes,] and
leare the State. Great escitoment prevailed
throughout the county, and the Wytheville Re
publican, of the 20th instant, states that the
Vigilance Committee of Grayson were in hot
pursuit of other obnoxious persons."
Whether this man iB r.n abolitionist, seces
sionist, Jew, Turk, or Hottentot, we do not
caro to inquire. In auy case the "Committee
of Vigilance" deserve punishment, and a stigma
will rest upon the Commonwealth of Virginia
until they receive their just deserts. How can
that State cry out for the punishment even of
the Christiana murderers, and yet tolerate
within her own dominions such highhanded
deeds as this ?
Do Ghosts Aitia.b.7?The Washington Tele
graph, referring to the Rov. Septimus Tustin's
Lecture on Ghosts and Apparitions, thinks the
editor of tho Philadelphia Sun will be present,
in the hope that Bomo of the beauleas young la
dies will bo afraid to go home by themselves.
"There was a time" whim such an idea might
hava possessed us, but now the girls all pick
out youngor men than we are to go home with
them. We are " falling into the sere and yellow
leaf,"?wo are the setting gun, and our rising
ion stands a far better chance to be chosen as a
cavalier ttrvanle than wo do.?Phila. Sun.
This is very pretty, and quite an appropriate
story to tell at home; but we have heard tell"of
you, and how the young ladies of Philadelphia
" do wish married gentlemen would be less

The Centre Market.
A writer in the Republic informs us that sev
eral plans have been prepared and laid before !
the Mayor of Washington for a new struoture j
of a market-house, to cost from $75,000 to |
$100,000, with a range of tlorc? upon Pennsyl- j
vania avenue, capacious hall*, and with neveral ?
office* in the eecond etory. He says it is presumed
that a daily market would then be established,
and that from such a building an annual reve
nue of $20,000 would be obtained. As to the
"ways and means," be says, tho Corporation
will not be compelled to incur, directly, one i
cent of expense; as a liberal oiticcn is willing |
to advance the necessary amount, on the credit J
of the Corporation, and look to tho revenue j
from the market, over tho necessary current
expenses, for repayment. A new market-house
would soon pay for itself; and he cannot con-:
ocive why the proper authorities should for a
moment delay this important work.
Permit us to remark here, that a piece of
ground has been given to this city by the United
States government for the ptirpotet of a market
place?not as a place on which to build " a
range of stores," "capacious halls," or "offices
in tli* second story." A market place is the
only object; and if this is not observed in good
faith by the oity, the ground must revert back
to the General Government.
The people of Washington want immediately a |
good market-house, and a good one can be
made for less than seventy-five or ono hundred
thousand dollars. Let the whoU apace given for
m market place be properly graded and well '
paved; let a simple market-house be built, so
open as to secure tbe best ventilation, and so i
ample as to shelter all the poople who come to ,
buy or sell. This can be done at so small a
cost as to require no delay, and can be done by
the eity, who alone should do it.
We do not want a daily market here; but on
the oontrary, we wish the smaller markets, in 1
the other parts of the city, to share with the
central portion the benefits of alternate market
days. Willow Baskbts.

A United States warrant was this moruiug
issued by Justice J. L. Smith, for one Ilenii e
Ahna, upon the following affidaviU:
B. it remembered, that, on this 29* day of
September, 1861, before me Johu L. S;m ,
Justice of the Peace for the
ffB tnTh^",1ofXU^^Dist?k? aforesaid,
nho after being duly sworn, aud according to
law 'says: That a certain man naming himself
Henri de Ahna, who lately arrived ui this
jouutry from Europe, (and represents lumBeir
to l>e a native of Bavaria, aud to have been a
Captain in the Bavarian army,) is now in tins
city as a temporary sojourner, and baa been for
some da>'8 or weeks circulating a most wilfu
and malicious libel against this deponent a wife,
born Appollonia Jogiello, who, before she was
married to this deponent, came to this c?uu*?i
to seek asylum as a political exile, under t c
protection of Governor Ujhnzi, late of Hungary,
and his family. The deponent further says
that tho libel referred to consists of a printed
paper headed "Answer of Henri de Ahna to
the citizens of Washington, in regard to certain
imputed slauders;" which paper, under tho
above heading, coutains most malicious, lalse,
and unwarrantable libellous imputations, pu
lished ugainst said Appollonia Jagiello, now
wife of this deponent, in the form ot an
vit purporting to have been made before 11. C.
Browne 11, Justice of the Peace, of WiUiamsburg,
in tho county of Kings, State of New York, by
a German naming himself Charles Koelbol, anu
styling himself to be a M?yor in the late Hun
garian array. The deponent exhibited and filed
with tlii* affidavit two printed copies ot said
libel, to sbow that the lalsc, wilful, and mali
cious imputations made, published, and circu
lated against his wife, amount to a wilful
breach of peace against the United States; that
they are designed, maliciously, to impair the
-rood name, reputation, and character of this
deponent's wife; and that the offence of cir-|
culating them is indictable under the laws ot
the land. The deponent then said, that the
Grand Jury not being now in session, he applies
to this magistrate for a warrant against stud
offender, Henri de Ahna, to secure hisi appear
ance at the next term of the Criminal Court, by
committing him, said Henri do Ahna, in the
county jail until he gives a bail sufficient to
secure such appearance, and answer the great
offence committed against the peace of the peo
ple of the United States by reason of circulating
aforesaid false, malicious aud wilful libel against
the wife of this deponent. The deponent further
says, that he has no evidenee to prove that saul
iibel has been written, as it purports to have
been, by said Charles Koelbel, styling himself,
Major of the late Hungarian army; but to1
prove that it has been circulated by said man,
naming himBelf Henri de Ahna, he brings as
witnesses Messrs. T. C. Connolly and James A.
Berry citizens and residents of this District, to
whom said offender, Henri de Ahna, handed
personally the two copies of libel, which this
deponent filed in this office with this affidavit. ,
Tho deponent lastly says, that he has reason to
believe, and dees really believe, that, indepeud- |
eut of the personal jealousy and animosty con
nected with wilful malice, said offender, Henri
de Ahna, has been aided and abetted in circu
lating said libel by a foreign diplomatio repre
sentative and others, from politioal and other
motives, which this deponent expocts to prove
during the trial of the case. lie, the deponent,
makes this last statement, which he believes to
be true and correct, to Bbow this magistrate
that circumstauccs aggravating the oftence are
in existence; that, therefore, the amount of
bail should be ample and sufficient to secure
the attainment of justice, as a small bail would
defeat the end, and would encourage other de
signing and Undisposed individuals to harass
I meritorious persons by false imputations at the
expense of the people of tho United States.
expense oi v v oaspakd tocuman.
Subscribed and sworn before me this 29th day
of September, one thousand eight hundred
.and fifty-one. j l smitii. J.P., [s?al] j
The warrant was served by Officer Wollard,
who brought his prisoner before Justice Mor- |
sell. Edwin Morgan, esq., appeared for the
accused, and the case being submitted to the :
Justice, security in the sum of five hundred !
dollars was required for the appearance of Do
Ahna beforo tho Criminal Court at its next
term. Dr. Charles H. Lciberman entered tho
bond as his security. The amount, to say the
least, is very reasonable.
Subsequently to the above, another warrant
of like character wan issued by Justice Smith,
against the same, but based upon the utterance
of another libel, in the publication of a pamphlet
entitled 41 The Greatest Humbug of the Day."
The publications and conversations of the
above-named accused have attracted some at
1 tcntion in this city for a few weeks past, either (
on account of the faith reposed in his state- j
ments, or tho wonder that he could be permitted
to utter them. He is now, no doubt, in the
hands of those who will do him full justice in
the premises, and destroy either him or the
person whom he assails.
In the course of his pamphlet, De Ahna, in !
speaking of Major Tochman, says:
it i had. the very day of his complaint, left a j
printed affidavit for him with his friend, the
editor of the Telegraph, which is now ten days
! since."
He uttered this on the fourteenth of Septem-1
ber. The dsy of Major Tochman's " com- J
plaint," alluded to, was the sixth. We nover
saw Do Ahna, nor he us, till the eighth. He
called at our office to reply to Major Tochman's
?complaintand then presentod his printed
affidavit in the presence of witness. We are
particular to mention this, because it has been
commented on, because the falsehood of the
assertion should be shown, and because it is
all we know respecting the whole affair.
It is the pur^pso of our laws to do justice to
all, even to the most vile and wretched crea
ture that oomes before the bar of our criminal
courts ; and we trust tho present case may not
be prejudged. Either the reputation of Major
Tochman and his lady, aud nearly or quite all
the prominent Hungarians in this country, is
to be forfeited, or this man Do Ahna is to un
dergo a long period of imprisonment. Either
j evert is of sufficient moment to demand an un
I prejudiced an 1 impartial trial.
We understand it is not the purpose of Major
1 Tochman to enter the civil courts for redress,
: but that he will be content with such protec
tion as.the criminal tribunals are competent to

whole passage.
We have but a limited sketch of general news.
Much disappointment was felt in kngland,
owning to the lack of definite news from the
Cuba Expedition. It is stated as the result of
negotitttious between England, ! ranee, and
Spain, that further expeditions against Cuba
iroin America will bo resisted by thcBO powers.
Political and religious ciroles ure engrossed
by the secession of the Duke of Nortolk from
the Roman church. Great feeling was mani
fested on all sides. Hon. Abbott Lawrence is
on a tour through England. The gold excite
ment in Australia was increasing. The receipts
of the Exhibition are ?3,000 per diem.
The India mail, with Calcutta dates to Au
gust 7, has arrived, but brings no news. Ster

Advices from the continent show the great
uneasiness for the future. The Department of
Ardeche, in France, was in a state of siege.
The Prince de Joinville is shortly expected to
formally announce his name as a candidate for
the Presidency. The Due D'Aumule is on his
way to London.

" His Gkack tub Archbishop or Nbw
York."?Bishop Hughes is thus entitled in the
official announcements of the Freeman'a Jour
nal, a prominent Roman Catholic paper. It a
secular paper had used the term, we should
have suspected the editor to be ignorant or
jocular; but the Journal is, of course, neither.
Archbishops Carroll and Eccleston, perhaps as
distinguished and elevated as any other minis
ters of their church our country lias over
known, and both of titled families in the Old
World, forbore the assumption of titles in this,
and yet fulfilled pretty well the duties of their
calling. " His Grace" of New York, however,
of far humbler origin, no doubt regards them
as a couple of plain republican Americans,
" well enough in their sphere," but ignorant of
high courtly notions. It is a small matter, to
be sure, but41 straws show," &c.
Mubdbk.?Messrs. Editors: Please insert the
following truthful lines from the Philadelphia
"Murder.?Much is said about the Christiana
murder. Strange that we should shudder at
one murder, and wink at a thousand. All through
our State, men are actually licensed.to commit
murder. The best proof lies in the notorious
fact that thousands of our citizens are actually
killed annually through the sale and use of ar
dent sjririts! Stand but an hour at your door,
' and you may sec some of the poor deluded vic
tims staggering, slowly, but surely, to their de
graded fates. Who cannot point to some bright
star of hope, amongst hia circle of relatives
and friends, who has been struck from the
galaxy by this dreadful traffic, and yet we are
calmly permitting its continuance. Strange
that familiarity with a crime so monstroufc
should blind us to the necessity of its speedy
destruction. Is there a political evil of ono
tenth the enormity as this? What are tariffs,
or sub-treasuries, or banks, or all other ques
tions combined, compared to this in importance?
Intemperance produces derangement in business,
failures, poverty, degradation, vmniiy, crime, and
even death! Here we should centre our whole
political strength, and until it is destroyed,
throw to the world all party alliance. On*."
Consul Owicn.?We have an idea that Mr.
Consul Owen does not hold a very high place in
Major HayneB's esteem, or in the esteem of any .
survivor of the Lopex expedition. He is likely |
to receive the cold shoulder from bis fellow-cit- ]
izens generally, should he return to the United
States. We condemn the object and purpose of
the Lopez invasion, but are far from sympathiz
ing with the indifference which seems to have
been manifested by Mr. Owen, in regard to tho
fate of hia deluded but gallant countrymen.
