IfTo the lovers of nature in her most savuge \ '>ect, and to the admirer of the wonderful,] Aether miniature or art, perhaps no place j hsents more attactions than the coal region ■ "the vicinity of Mauch Chunk, Pennsylvania, ie wild and rapid Lehigh, partly subdued to uses of man for the purpose of canal navi- j Hion, winds its way for miles through tangea , (•lofty mountains, presenting to tho eye of the i ivoller, with every turn of the stream, a rude- j magnificent and never-tiring panorama, re-; fete with savage grandeur and wild sublimity. | ited with the beauty of God's works, the cu- | us observer may gratify himself with the rks of man, and contemplate, with pride and onishment, the cdntrivancos designed by in 'jlect to overcome the difficulties which,for a 1 le, embarrassed tho Lehigh Company in uring forth in profusion to the far oft deni es of tho city and hamlet, the anthracite Vasures whoso gonial glow glaaden in win d's blasts, tho proud abode of the rich, or the ftmblo dwelling of the poor. 9Tho "Summit Minos," the mcst extensively torked coal basin of the Lehigh Company, arc Euated nine miles from Maucli Chunk, and in jder to transport the black diamonds to the tehigh, a gentle inclined plane, or grade, was [adc from the mines to the shute on tho canal, awn which the loaded cars were suffered to 'kscend by their own gravity, governed only % the brake; and with each train went, as pas fttgers, in the cars provided for them, a goodly limber of mules, which, having arrived at the r [id of the.r pleasuro trip, were employed to 'but back the empty cars. This arrangement *feoduced much delay and hindrance, until it il as discovered that a mountain called Mount l 'isgah, in the vicinity, was higher than the 4jmmit Mines and accordingly, a grade by to return the empty cars was established torn Pisgah's top to the Summit. In order, aowever, to place them upon the grade, it was Oicessary that they should be conveyed to the! tiunnit of Pisgah, and to this, one of the most llonderful and steep inclined planes has been 4ade that can be found in this country, or fcrhaps in the world. In a length of twenty- Jree hundred feet it rises over six hundred let, and, to the eye of an at its foot,' Oipears to ascend with a steepness perpendi ailar. A stationary engine at the top hauls up Sie empty cars, by means of iron bands welded bgether, and the plane, being in many place tilt on embankments renders the ascent excit g and interesting. (It was on a bright summer afternoon, about ighteen months since, that Bridget O'Connor, he wife of a mirier at the Summit,arrived at the lot of the Pisgah piano with two of her chil- ! •ren, one an infant of tender years, and tho oth- [ f a boy of about throe yecr .of age. Family nc-! essitics had caused her to v isit vlauch Chunck, I nd a bundle which she carried with her con- j lined grocery articles for domestic use. There j 'as no°means of conveyance to her home but j y the empty cars, and, placing herself an IJ hildren in one of these, she was prepared for 10 ascent of the plane. The jerking motion of! Ie bands commenced and slowly tlie train was rawn up the mountain. Although she Siad , ften ascended in safety, the miner's wife could | tot subdue a thrill of terror, as she gazed over j wful precipices on each side of the track; and ; s her eye drank in, occasionally, the wild jrandeur of the mountain ranges, rising like erraces far off in the blue distance, iter wo man's heart would shudder, as she also marked |'L the bottom of the plane, and in the far off abysses of the rocks that shattered fragments of cars which were dashed oft' the road, in conse quence of the breaking of the band attached to [ Item. Often had such accidents occurred, at \imes, too, when the ascending trains carried fnen as passengers; but they had always, by j-ieans of superior agility, managed at the risk If limb, to save life by leaping tiom tbecirs, AND BALTIMORE DAILY CLIPPER. PRINTED AND PUBLISHED EVERY MORNING, BY BULL A TUTTLE, No. 134 BALTIMORE STREET, BALTIMORE, Mil. | ere they had acquired much impetus; but she was accompanied with two helpless children, boxed up in a car to the height of five feet, and she was a woman. Upward and onward the slow train was dragged by the stalwart power of steam, and lighter grew the heart of the anxious mother—still onward—! until a space of about twenty-five feet remained to the top. Here her brightening hope sunk, for she knew that this was the part of the ascent at which was the greateststrain upon tho bands—jerk by jerk, the cars were drawn violently forward— ten—fifteen feet were passed, and agasn hope rose buoyant, when a sudden sharp crack pro claimed disaster, and tho disconnected train paused for a moment, as if gathering strength for the rapid descent. With a wild and fear ful shriek, the agonized mother seized her old est child and threw it out upon the sido of the track, where it landed safely, but vain was her effort to save the other—the rapid momentum acquired in this short instance was so great that immediate death would have been the conse quence. Unable to save herself or child, she was compelled to remain in the dashing train, whose rapidity became every moment more fearful. Downward, with tho speed of light- i ning, it flew, and the horror-struck spectators I could only distinguish the form of the mother j hugging close her infant. Downward! still downward! till nothing could be seen but a fly ing mass of blackness—now it bounded off the ; rails, and, plunging, rushing, took a sudden j turn off a precipice, and shattering into thou- i sands of pieces, covered the rocks and the slop- \ ing sidas of the mountain. Search was imme- j diately made for the mother and child, and in i a chasm, where they had been hurled, were found their mangled bodies—tho child hugged close to its mother's breast, and around it were ; immovably locked the arms of the unhappy parent. This terrible accident was the last that hap pened upon any planes of the company from a similar cause. A cog-tail running between the two tracks was invented,over which, attached to a safety-car, glides a safety-latch, and if a break occurs in tho bands, tho latch immediately catches in the cog-rail, the cars recede one inch, and are there held securely by this ad mirable contrivance. The ascent of tho I'is gah plane is now made with certain safety, but oftimes the stranger is seen to shudder, as dur ing the ascent, some brakemau relates the fear ful story of the miner 's wife. A SNUG LITTLE FORTUNE. Some of tho heirs of Col. (not Lord, as he has been called,) Townley are supposed to be living in this country, ana efforts havo been made to trace out their genealogy with sufficient clearness to establish a claim upon his estate. At present, however, there is much doubt resting upon the subject, and indeed the Providence Journal in t timates that the task will prove a fruitless one. | From that paper we make the following ex tracts, in reference to the matter: Col. Francis Townley was executed July 30, 1745, in Southwark. This unfortunate gen tleman, after having resided in France from 1728 to 1745, returned to England with the pretender, Prince Charles Edward, and was ap pointed Colonel of the Manchester regiment.— Ho was of a respectable family in Lancashire. He was taken prisoner at Carlisle. Ho was tried and convicted with eighteen others, chief ly officers of his regiment, of high treason, and condemned to death. Col Townley and nine others wore executed on Kensington Common, the south part of London. The estates of those executed in 1745 wero forfeited to the crown. If Townley's estate can be recovered, it must be for sotne error in the law proceedings. The amount of his estate is estimated at 25,- 000,000 sterling, or tnoro than Two Hundred and Fifty Millions of Dollars! When their heirs , here "touch the sillar," wo trust they will be generous, and after reserving to each of them a snug fortune, pay tho expenses of tho Mexi can war, which will probably not exceed $200,- 000,000. Our whole nation, therefore, are interested in tho success of the heirs. May it not prove a Wild Goose Chase. WHICH ARM. The newspapers are discus sing the question which arm "should a gentle man give a lady?" One contends for the right, another for the left, and a third for whichever is convenient. If you have but one glove, for in stance, and that a right hand one, give her your right arm. Then, again, if your right el bow lias burst its way out through your coat, give her, by all means, your left arm. If a ; rowdy run against you or your companion ne -1 ver mind giving her cither arm till you first .give him both your fists. Again, when a gen tleman has lost an arm—in this case the lady must take the lefl one—or, when one arm is I previously engaged to some other fair, then, in ; all instances, the last comer must take the left. i The safest rule would be to let the ladies them -1 selves choose. Whichever side they took, they would bo sure to fasten on tho right arm. GIVE NO PAIN. Breathe not a sentiment— say not a word—give not an expression of the countenance that will offend another, or send a thrill of pain through his bosom. We are I surrounded by sensitive hearts, which a word, a look eveti, might fill to the brim with sorrow i 4 lf you arc careless of the opinions and exprcs- I sions of others, rernenibet that they are differ < ently constituted from yourself, and never, by a ' word or sign, cast a shadow ori a happy heart, | or throw aside the smiles of joy that lovo to lin j ger on a pleasant countenance.

One of the most prominent weaknesses of our people, whatever may be said to the contrary, is their gullibility. The Facility witli which they may bo "taken in" by "distinguished strangers," is really matter of astonishment. A Lexington correspondent of the Louisvillo Courier fur nishes the following case in point: Some time during the summer of 1845, there came to Lexington, unnoticed and unknown, a Doctor Edward Shumann, a Gorman by birth, and a dentist by profession. He seemed an or dinary sort of man; very ordinary in his appear ance; indeed,a homely man—and no one disco vered any thing remarkable in him, either men tally or bodily. But not many weeks had pass od before indistinct rumors of some great good fortune that had befallen tho Doctor, came to bo circulated—the public interest begat) to bo excited about Doctor Shumann—the public mind became awake to the importance of Doc tor Siiumann—lie was suddenly discovered to [ be a very interesting man, was the Doctor; ho improved very much in his personal appear- j anco in a few days in the eyes of tho public, and became "sttc/i a love of a man," did the i Doctor—and then when the whole glorious j truth burst upon us, and it was understood that j his rich uncle, " The Count" in Germany, had ! died and left him sixty thousand dollars in | cash!!!!! hats were off, and supple knees bent;: and sweetest incense from the crowd roso to the gratified nasal organs of Shumann. Who now so great—so admired—so respected as dear ■ Mr. Shumann? And yet, how meekly his ho nors sit upon him! Mr. Shumann resolves to become ono of our landed proprietors, and the public ear is next astounded at the announcement that ho had bought of Mr. B , a farm for $30,000, which, a few months before, B had bought at SIO,OO0 —but, said the public, Shumann nev er quarrels or higgles about price! He furnishes his house in the handsomest style—buys buggies, rockaways, horses, cattle,! and farming utensils, upon an extensive scale, i and in his magnificence, thinks not of pay—but who can doubt his solvency? Time passes—and Shumnnn, hitherto accus tomed to a life of busy occupation, wearies of: the monotony of his farm, and determines to turn his attention to merchandizing. Going North, he purchases a large stock of goods—by far, the greatest portion on a credit—being as sisted in purchases bv the endorsement of tho above mentioned Mr. B , whose credit is j unbounded. The store proceeds; things go on I swimmingly. A month since Shumann left for the North, to lay in another stock of goods.— After a few days, his wife received a letter from him, stating he would return no more to Lex ington, and advising hor that she had bettor go to her father' 1 s house. All now is terror and dis may. It is now discovered that no fortune was left him, and that the whole affair was a swin dle. Strange to say, every man you meet, "stis pected from the Jirst that Shumann was a d d rascal, and things have turned out just as he ex peeled " Twenty chancery suits are the result of the Shumann humbug, "it is an ill-wind that blows nobody good," and verily this ono has blown good to the lawyers, who lick their chops and look grave, and rub their hands with inward satisfaction—and in their hearts bless Shumann. In the chancery suits Mr. B is involved. —The bills charge that he was engaged in a combination with Shumann to deceive and do fraud the public, by investing Shumann with the title to the land; upon which B yet claims a lien for the purchase money, and there by giving him before the worid a credit to which he was not entitled. Tho charges are of course denied. B seeks to subject tire farm to the payment of the unpaid purchase money, and the other creditors seek to subject it to their claims. Such is "the glorious un certainty of the law," that to predict the result requires a spirit of prophecy not possessecd by your correspondent. NEW YORK FLOUR MARKET. TIIU corres pondent of the Philadelphia Inquirer, writing from New York on Wednesday, says: Holders of flour are not disposed to sell ex cept at prices which will not allow of ship ment, because at the last accounts from Eng land flour there was actually fifty cents a bar rel less than it is here now. The holders or the "Bulls" anticipate further accounts of the po tato rot, and the buyers or "Boars" "hope that the failure in that esculent is not so general as t was supposed at the last accounts—and conse : qucntiy that there will bo a reaction tn tho I market here and a decline in the prices. I Between the two parties, the article is inac i tive, while immense quantities are daily arriv ' ing. Accounts from the western part of the [ State ropresont the shippers and millers on tho j line of the canal very busy in sending forward | all the produce possible, before the canal clo -1 ses. i WEALTH OF WASHINGTON CITY. The total ! assessment of real and personal property in the i year 1824, amounted to $5,000,000; 1829, $",- | 000,000; 1834, $7,100,000; 1839, $9,100,000; I 1844, §11,000,000. At tins date, the amount | may be safely put down at $12,000,000. No tax is levied on the public buildings or grounds. I The estate of the late General John Van Ness i is estimated at more than double the amount i of any other. THE FRENCH HARVEST. The French Min ister of Commerco has written to the Prefects for details of the produce of the last harvest; and he states that his own conviction is that the harvest taken altogether is better thin that of last year, though it had been confidently stated there was a great deficit. LITERARY INTELLIGENCE. The Rev. John T. Pressly, formerly of Abbeville district, (S. C.)but now of Allegany city, Pcnn , lias been elected to the Presidency of Erskine College, Penu., by the A. R. Synod, who have charge of the College. The number of students already admitted to tho freshman class at Yale College, is 32, which will be probably increased to over a hundred. FIRE AT OSWEGO. On Thursday evening last, tiiur buildings were consumed at Oswego, N. Y. Sufferers: C. S. Phelps, owner, and Messrs. Jacob & Martin, occupants; Mr. Kerr, owner, and Hsrroun, Kenyon, Montgomery, Langton, and tho Daily Advertiser: W. Mont gomery and Miss Steals. TROUBLE IN THE TREASURY. A letter from Washington t tho N. York Commercial says: "From all that I can learn, the Secretary of the Treasury is greatly embarrassed for means. He cannot issue any more Treasury drafts.— His management of thorn at first ruined their credit and availability. A loan is impractica ble at present. The disbursing officers find the groatest difficulty in making payments under the new system. How then aro they to pro ceed to make payments at twenty different points, in largo and small sums, under their present restrictions? The thing is impractica ble. The eight millions authorized by the Treasury note and loan bill are unavailable.— It will not take long to exhaust the four mil lions now subject to draft." THE VOLUNTEERS IN MEXICO. An officer of the Ariny writing from Seralvo, to the Savan nah Republican, gives tho American force on its march to Monterey, as 6,000 men—2,soo being volunteers. He says it is impossible "to take more on account of transporting supplies. There is no use for moro volunteers, and the rest might belter bo at home attending to their business. They can't stand the field—they know nothing about taking care of themselves —waste more than they eat, and are altogether very expensive. In a defensive war, thoy an swer exceedingly well." SONS or TEMPERANCE. The report of tho Grand Division of Maryland for tho quarter ending in Juno, makes tho whole number of the Order in tho State, 2,185 —comprising 34 Divisions. The amount expended for benefits during the qunrter, was $140; cash receivod, $2,773 19—amount of cash on hand, $5,245 88 1-4. During the entire quarter, there was but one death, a member of Patapsco Division, No. 13, at Kllicott's Mill. A MOST LAMENTABLE ACCIDENT. Tho Charlestown Virginia Free Press, says: We are pained to record the death of Miss Mary Lew is, daughter of the late Dr. John H. Lewis, of this county, who received injuries last week j which have resulted in her death. It appears j that Miss L. sprung from a carriage while the J horses attached to it wero in the act of running away. By tho fall she received a compound fracture of one ancle, the bone protruding through the skin, and running several inches into the ground. Miss L. wasotlierwise much injured, arid suffered much pain for several days before her death. The accident occurred on the 27th ul t., and on the 2d inst. she was a j corpse. DELAWARE ELECTION. The election tor inspectors and judges of the general election, took place in Delaware on Wednesday. In Now Castle County the Whig candidates for Inspectors have been elected by a majority of about 80 votes. In Kent county the Whig ticket succeeded by about 180 majority. Sus sex has been but partially heard from, but be lieved to have gone for tho Whigs. THE DRAMA IN PARIS, A letter from Paris, speaking of the press, says: "The only literary trade that flourishes, out of the pale of the newspaper press, is that of the dramatist.— Eacli time that a vaudeville is performed, the manager pays ten per cent, to the author on the even when performed in villages and in barns, the playwright derives ttvo or thrue francs profits. At the Academic de Mu sique, the director pays 100 francs per act of a grand opera every night it is performed, and as lyrical operas arc generally in five acts, authors thus get £2O a night. A society is established, with agents all over France, for the collection of these dues, deriving for their pay two per cent, on the amount collected; and even secon dary vaudovillists, totally unknown to fame, j receive from *£looo to £2OOO a year, for dues i derived from tiieir humble productions." FASHION AT CANTON. The New York cor- ; respondent of the Philadelphia Sun says: Mr. Laird carries "Fashion" down to the Canton Course, at .Baltimore, next Tuesday to run against all comers, in three and four milo races. A good attendance of horses, turfmen, and spectators is anticipated. SLANG OF THE DAY. Question. Is Mr. Polk, as Mr. Ritchie says, the "Great father of tiie red men."

When the misguided a nil imprudent vot.i ry of plea sure finds he has imbibed the seeds ofthis painful dis ease, it too often happens that an ill-timed sense of shame, or dread of discovery, deters him from apply ing to those who, from education and respectability can alone befriend him, delaying till the constitutional symptoms of this horrid disease make theirappeat ance, such as ulcerated sore throat, diseased MOM, nocturnal pains in the head and limbs,dimncssof sight, deafness, nodes on the shin bones and arms, blotches on the head, face and extremities, progressing on with frightful rapidity, till at last the palate of the mouth or the bones of the nose fall in and the victim ofthis aw ful disease becomes a hot rid object of commiseration, till death puts a period to his dreadful sufferings, by sending kiln to "that bourne whence no traveller ro utes." To such, therefore, Dr. JOHNSTON pledge* himself to preserve the most inviolable secrecy; and, from his extensive practice in the first hospitals of Europe and America, lie can confidently recommend a safe and speedy cure to the unfortunate victim of this hortid disease. It is a melancholy fact, that thousands fall victim to this horrid disease, owing to tiie unskillfUlncss o, men, who by the use of thai deadly poison, mercury, rain the constitution, and either send the unfortunate suffer to an untimely grave, or else make the residu* of his life miserable. GONORRHOEA AND GLEET CURED, by the inost speedy and the most pleasant remedy known te no other physician. Itrequires no restraint of diet, or hindrance from business—it is mild, safe and effij cacious, eradicating every symptom of this affection, without causing other diseases, such as STRICTOEM and AFFECTIONS OF THE BLADDER and I'KOSTRATK GLAND, which impyrics and quacks so often create their noxious drugs and filthy infections. STRICTURES—when there is a partial suppres sion of urine, accompanied with uneasiness in the parts, or a frequent desire to make water, it is called Stricture. Yet this disease may exist, and none Oi these symptoms be perceptible, or if at all, they arc so slight as to pass unnoticed; hence, we find thou sands laboring under this affection who are entirely unconscious of it—such persons become weak in ths parts, seldom have children, and in Ibe later stages of this complaint are incapable of enjoying Marriage— their systems bceojne deranged, particularly the stomach, inducing symptoms of dyspepsia; also affec tions of the mind, peculiar fits ol melancholy, Sic. ike. which may end in some dreadful disease of thi nerves, anil will either caase a ptetnature death or else make the rest of life miserable. To such per sons, Dr. JOHNSTON offers the niOßt speedy remedy that can be obtained in the United States. QQ- Read Dr. J.'sTreaties on Venera!,etc. etc. TAKE PARTICULAR NOTICE. Yonng men wtm have injured themselves by a cei tain practice indulged in when alone—a habit fre quently learned front evil companions, or at school— the effects of which ate nightly felt even when asleep, and if not cured renders marriage impossible, uid de stroys both mind and body. What a pity that a young man, the hope of his country, and the darling of his parenis, should be snatched from all the prospects and enjoyments of life by the consequences of deviating from the path of nature and indulging in a certain secret habit. Such persons before contemplating MARRIAGE, Should reflect that a sound and body are the most necessaiy requisites to promote connubial happiness indeed, without these, the journey through life be comes a weary pilgrimage, the prospect hourly dark ens to the view—the mind becomes shadow, A with despair, and filled with the melancholy reflection, that the happiness of another becomes blighted with our own.

Parents and guardians are often misled, with respect to ths causes or sources of disease in tin ir sous and wards. How often do they ascribe to other causes the wast ing of Hie frame, idiotcy, madness, palpitation of ths heart, indigestion, derangement of the nervous sys tem, cough and symtoms, indicating consumption, when tiie truth is that liiey have been caused by inj dulging in a pernicious, though alluring practice, den, truclive to both mind and body. INVOLUNTARY SEMINAL EMISSIONS. Of this distressing disease, which is the common result of 'he above mentiwned secret hahit, but a very brief description for many reasons,can be given here, The complaint comes on gradually. It begins by a too hasty discharge of semen in copulative and pas sionate dreams. Such emissions being too hasty, have so power, while the erections are feeble, imper fect and soon over. As the disorder grows Worse, the discharges or emissions become more easily ex cited and frequent, often brought on by lascivious ideas, or by merely touching tiie part. In this ileplo r,yiie case, the emissions lake place without any pleasure and without erection, ami i this debilitated and sensitive slate of tiie organ- the direful effects ot pollution so ruinous to health, lain piace day and uight.
