It is stated that five hundred millions of dol
lars are spent annually in the United States for
nuch articles of dress as are subject to the flue
tiiations of fashion. Of this sum it is computed
that sixteen rnilloris are spent for hats, probably
about twenty millions for caps and bonnet?, and
for other articles ot dress, not less than four hun
dred millions !
I ho IVew Vnrk Herald says tliat there are ad
vices from Washington, according to which, in
the view of the Administration, the recent treatv
fur the annexation ot Texas, rejected by the Sen-,
ate?the treaty of commerce with the Zoll-Verein,
also rejected by the Senate, are considered to
have been approved by the decision of the people
in this election, and they will be renewed at the
next session of Congress, and placed before the
Senate in some shape or other.
A Heroine.?Although in the late political
contest, many a poor man in this country was
forced to succomb to his "Democratic" task
master, yet there were some noble exceptions
one of which we shall relate. A poor man, who
has been a Whig for years, in the township of
Sandyston, was threatened by his landlord with a
summary ejectment from the premises in his oc
cupancy, unless he voted for l'olk and Dallas,
lie hesitated upoti receiving this edict, but his
wife, with that courage and fortitude which ever
animates the breast ot a true woman, determined
that her husband should spurn the dictation of the
petty tyrant. She accompanied him to the polls
herself, and did not rest satisfied rill he had de
posited his ballot for Clay and Frelinjjhuysen.
The gallant Whigs of Sandyston rightly appro'
ciated the conduct of this noblo-spirited woman
and presented her with a new dress, as a testi
monial of their admiration. That humble couple
will not be permitted to suffer. Let their would
be oppressor look to himself.?Susses (N. J.)
Register.
A Revolt.?A correspondent of the New
Sun, writing from Constantinople, says : York
"Couriers have been arriving here from Alba
nia, bringing the most alarming intelligence.?
The Province has again revolted, and so great
are the resources of the insurgents, that more
serious disturbances than those of last spring are
looked for with painful anxiety. The Sultan's
Cabinet are in session, and considerable stir is
manifested in the War department."
Later from Brazil.?The schr. Erie, from
Para, brings intelligence to 18tli October.
Capt. Mathews states that, the elections for the
National Assembly had recently occurred through
the Empire. The contest was a very close and
energetic one, between the Imperialists and the,
opposition party. It was reported in Para, that
there had been some serious disturbances in Ce
ra. (a neighboring province.) In the course of
the riots and fights, report says, that several were
killed and wounded by shots fired by the govern
ment troops, and by the rioters.
Thrilt.ing Incident.?At a meeting of the
friends of colonization in Louisville, on Wednes
day evening, we were spectators to one of the
most intensely thrilling incidents connected with
the departure of a small band of emigrants, just
brought, to the city by a gentleman of Shelby
county, by whom they were manumitted, and
pWed under the care of Rev. Mr. Phinny, an
agent of the Colonization Society. Of the num
ber, eleven were children of one man, who was
present, and appeared to be verging to the age of
three score vears and ten. This patriarch was
not of the number manumitted ; he belonged to
another estate, but had permission to accompany
h's wife and children to this city, and here bid
thein a final adieu. When this fact was an
nounced, with an emotion that almost choked the
utterance of the speaker, there was the loop
drawing in of the breath by every listener, which
indicates the workings of the powers within. All
eyes were directed toward the object of so much i
sympathy; and when it was further statod that
the owner of the old man Reuben (for so he was
called) would permit him to depart, with his family
for the small sum of a thousand pence, the re
sponse was with one voice, Reuben shall be free!
On the instant, the table of the moderator was
thronged, and the sum laid upon it, to reunite for
the remnant of their days old man Reuben and
his wife, and they and their children are now on
their way to the shore of Africa.?Louisville Cour.
Another Traveller.?An Englishman for
the first time visited one of the markets, pencil
and paper in hand, to ascertain the different
prices of articles, for his notes in America. Ap
proaching a butcher's stall, he inquired the price
of" very fine quarter of mutton. "Twenty-five
ce'its," said the owner. " I asked you a civil
, question," said the Englishman. " I gave you a
CM'il answer," said the butcher, "and I cannot
af/brd to sell my mutton for less. It. is a very
lite article, you will observe, and we have a
livh profit." " Well," said the stranger, "who
cf/d have thought it J 1 was not aware that
strt.'n a thing con d have been found in the world.
In I'r|n(Von such a piece of meat would have com*
mai/'?r' .five dollars!"?dncinniti Commercial..
RejJarkable Presentiment.?In Doyleston,
Pennsylvania, Beniah Holdren, an aped man of
91 years, after partaking a happy meal with his
children, apparently in perfect health, observed :
" Now, my friends, this is the last meal I shall
ever eat ; I am about to die." Ho then proceed
ed to yive directions as to his worldly concerns,
his burial, &.<?., and, when he had concluded was
struck down by a paralytic stroke.
Doyleston Whig.
What Education Does.?At an anniversary,
I onve heard a brother give an illustration of what
education does for the Minister, which had both
point and edge. " Education," said he, " is to
the mind, what the grindstone is to the scythe.
It. neither improves the temper of the steel, nor
adds to its amount; but some how or other, it
makes it cut.

Lord Chesterfield says that a good appearance la at all
times a letter of introduction. How can a man make a
good appearanoe wiih a face covered with pimples, pus
iule?, MUt rheum, harbor's or Jackson's itch, and various
other cutaneous diseases, that frequently dii-figure the hu
man form 'divine ' These and similar disorder* hive
iheir origin in an impure or depraved stale of the blood
and general fluid* ol the system, and Spring id ihe time 10
perlerlly eradicate them from the system, by the limely
ute of the righi medicine. Sunds's Sarsaparilla.a purely
vegetable preparation, which operates on the system
strictly in conlbrmity wiih Nature's laws, will entirely
remove all impurities of the blood, the grand source of
life and bodily vigor,and the patient will speedily leel its
heultby and regenerating influence on the system, and by
its use soon regain health ; the skin is rendered clear, and
the complexion much improved, as thousands can testify,
by ihe use of this valuable medicine.
