The buelligtner doubts whether the de
cisiou of the Supreme Court. in the ease of
Good noli re Guthrie, can be taken as affirm
itg the right of the President to remove a ter
ritorial judge. with which that journal does
not conceive theExecutiTc of the United States
to be clothed, if we may fairly draw a conclu
sion from the tenor of the editor's remarks
The came paper explains the decision of the
Supreme Court of Pennsylvania in Pas-more
William-on's application for a writ of habeas
corpus, a? follows:
? The ground tRken by the .Supreme Court
of Pennsylvania is, that th*t Court han no
jurisdiction to warrant its interfering 1
judgment of the Federal Courts ; that such
Courts have exclusive power in deciding cased
of contempt, srd the &ate Court could not go
behind the record to ascertain the fact whether
the commitment wan legal or not.
? The decision was read by Judge Black and
concurred in by Judge Lowrie. although the
latter differed in some of the views taken in
the case."
The Union quotes the record to show that
Senators Chase, Seward, Wade and Sumner,
and their allies in Congress, assisted, with
might and main, in repealing the Missouri
restriction in 1853. It will astonish all in
Washington familiar with tho unpublished
history of Congress, who know well the bitter
contempt for and hostility to tho Missouri
Compromise which the Abolitionists and Free
boilers have heretofore ox pressed, to learn
that they row talk differently of it.
Tho Election To day ?To-day Maine elcct*
^Governor. Legislature and other State officer*.
Three parties are in the field. The Demo
crats, who, are opposed to the Maine Liquor
L:iw and for the Nebraska bill (and are there
fore opposed to efforts for the restoration of the
Missouri restriction,'') thellcpubiioans, who
embrace the Abolitionists, Ko??w Nothings,
Free Soilcrs, and M tine Liquor Law men. who
are for the law, and for the repeal of the fu
gitive slave law and the restoration of the
Mi-sour restriction, and third?the strr-ight
out Whig party, with the estimable Isaac
lleed as their candidate for Governor. Re
cently there has been a very geueral fusion
thiou-houl the State between tho straight out
Whigs and Democrat*, who. in some counties,
have made a joint ticket, each hivvingor. it a
fair share of their friends. This furiou has
greatly in.-pirfrd the Democratic leaders there,
who have written to Washington that they ex
pcct to defeat the re-eltctionof Morr.ll to-day,
to elect a majority to the State Senate, (of
Democrats and straight out \\ higs) with at-ir
chenoe of obtaining a similar majority in the
lower branch.
We receive these sanguine antic ipations emu
?r*no *.;/?.*. If the Republican" coalition
cannot carry Maine, as matters h.'ne been
there for the la t two years, they cannot cany
a cingie Sta^o in the I nion, Ohio inCiU'ie I
As for the PhUadclphia-platform-Know-Noih
ing-pariy nothing of the sort exists in Maine.
We doubt if there are ten Kuow Nothings in
any town of the State attached to that organi
sation. The conservative Whigs of th.?t Staie
have xteadily refused to follow the example of
their brethren in New York and New Jersey
in going ever to Know N >thii'gi?m, as v?as
don* by the Seward or "conscicuco wing,
whose early exodus in that direction, (to leave
Know Nothiogism and joiu the Republican
party s< me time Muce.) foitunately kep. them
(the conservative \V bigs") out of the trap.
TltU? Prcgrtjg.?The remit of the late trial
of the rtfaning machines of various countries,
now being exhibited at the World's Inhibi
tion at Paris, mO??t be exceedingly gratifying
lo all our countryman, insomuch a." it proves
that we continue to be foremost in tho race of
improvement in the adoption of mechanical
principles to the business of economizing hu
man time and labor, and to that of bert ?c
curing for man the fruits of his .labor. A-< at
the similar trial in England during the mem
orable Crystal Palace exhibition, the Aineri
rnn machine? outstrip competitors.
The i'aris Constitutionnel, received by the
la t steamer. contair s an intorc.-ting account
of the great trial of reapers on that occasion,
which we adopt, as correct, in preference to
that in the Paris A mi ri can of Mr. Flesch
man. a well-known German gentleman, long
connect*. J with the Patent Office in tlii- city,
who now follow* the business of an American
patent in the Frcnch cipital?acting as
agent to introduce and sell American patented
articles in France, and to obtain patents in
Fram e for American inventions, ar.d in the
United States for French inventions?his jour
nal aforesaid being a sort of tender to his
patent agency business, and on that account
not in very good odor with tho American* in
Pari' who do not relish the notion of hav
ing the reputation of their country and its in
dustrial affairs represented mas to subserve
the publisher's businc.", in connection with
patent right*. Ac.
We deem this explanation necessary to give
our readers the key to more or Icsj of the won
derful statements in the article from Mr.
Fleschman's Paris journal, professing to em
brace an account oi the reapers in question,
which is now being extensively republished in
ihe United States. Wo prei'si the account of
the Con*lituiiouaef, frum the high character
of that Lofiii Jth French newspaper, which,
not being mixed up with the patent agency
business, makes its statement rather to inform
its countrymen of the true history and results
of the trial than to effect sales of this or thai
machine in France, in advance of the report of
the scientific commission of the Grand Exhibi
tion in Paris u^on the relative merit* of the

Pahis. Aug 7, ls- i.
The sec 'nd day of August having been ap
pointed for the final trial of all the reaping
and mowing machines in tho Lxpoeition. the
trial accordingly came off ou that day. There
were ten machine^ in the txposition ; nine ol
them were seut out by the Imperial Commis
sioner to the place of tiial, about forty miles
distant. It may be here remarked that the
iuacl ii.es vvei ? sent out aud returned free ot
e<?tu>the exhibitors. On the ground of tho
trial there were thousands of i>coi;le assem
bled to witness the nr.velty of tie day ; largo
tents had keen pre* :ou*ly erected, and a lar^o
aupply of re frefchments procured for the ocea
sion. The day was pleasant and the excite
ment of the immense conoourse of people in
tense. The police were in attendance upon
horseback. The militia were in requisition
with guns and bayoueU to keep the crowd of
f tiger spectators iroin off the grain. Stakes
were driven into the ground and rope* drawn
from stake to stake, until the entire field o!
about fifteen acre# was surrounded. This was
a field of an ordinary growth of oats, and
standing up well, and which was divided into
lots or pieces of about an acre earh, by swaths
being cut through at a given distance, paral
lel with each other?each pieco being num
bered, and one machine allotted to each piece
At the beat of the drum three machincr
started off together. 8. Wright s, of Chi
cago, 111., managed by his agent. Mr Jewel:
Patrick Bell's machine, by Mr. foment, and
a machine from Algiers. These machines,
being calculated to do their owa raking by
machinery. Wright s machine cut its piece
in twenty-four minutes; Bell's in sixty-six
minutes. and the Algiers machine in seventy
iw> minutes.
The raising or discharging of the grain
from all of the three machines was badly done,
the grain being much scattered in it* delivery
upon the ground?Wright's being much the
best. The cutting, however, wns well done.
The automaton raker of Wright's machine wus
truly wonderful. The operation of the ma
chine was wholly successful. Bell's machine
1-y Fourent. did the cutting and gathering of
the grain in a very neat manner: the grain
was delivered freely to one side of the machine
for the binders. After the jurors had care
fully noted the trial thus far, the signal
again was given and off started three other
machines?J. II. Manny's, of ltockford, Illi
nois, managed bjr his agent, Mr. Mabie; Bell s
machine, by Croskill. and a French one-horse
re.iper. Manny's cut its piece in twenty-two
minutes; Boll's, by Croskill, and the one
borne French reaper failed to cut their pieces;
while Manny's did its work in the most exqui
site manner, not leaving a single stalk un*
gathered; and it discharged the grain in the
most perfect shape, as if placed by hand for
the binders. It finished its piece most glo
riously ; the jurors could not restrain their ad
miration, but cried out, "Good," "well done."
The people applauded and hurraed for Man
ny's American reaper?"that sthe machine "
Again, after tho jury had taken furtlior notes
of tho trial, the signal wns given, nnd three
other machines started off on tho contest?
Hussy's reaper, by Dray; McCormiek's, by
McKensie; and Bell's, by Perry.
Hussy's machine cut its piece in thirty min
utes. MoCormick's in twenty minutes, and
Bell's failed to finish its piece. Hussy's ma
chine did its work remarkably well, cutting
clean and smoothly, and leaving the jjrass in
tho track of the machine in good condition for
tho binders. This machine was cancedcd to
be too heavy and laborious for tho team, and
leaving the grain in the track of the machine
found to bo an objection, as it necessarily
needed to be bound and removed as fast as the
machine did its work, in order that the ma
chine cou'd pass around a succeeding time;
yet this reaper is unquestionably a g<?od one;
and may be used to groat advantage as it
would likely prove durable, being very strong
ly made. McCormiek's machine performed its
task well, cutting a closc and even swath, but
the raker or attendant, who performed the la
bor of discharging the grain, seemed to be
very niu.'li strained, being obliged to ride
backward upon the machine, atone end of the
rrel, having to reach fully across the entire
width of the machine with a long bandied
rake t?? gatb -r tho grain and lay it eff of the
inschine Th?5 horses on this machine were
much troubled by a strong lateral pressure
against their shoulders, ??ccasioncd by the
tongue of the machine. This rcaj>or. on the
whole, is much t??o cumbersome atd heavy for
two horses. However, it ha* proven itself
va-tlv superior to nn~ of the inventions of the
old World, and from "the fact of its great feue
oos; leretofore, particularly at the London Ex
hibition ia l&l. it elicitcd a good deal of ad
miration and curius'ty.
The contest wa.? now fairiy narrowed down
to three machines, Manny's, Wright's, and
McC? rinl'kV Baton stalling, Wright sagain
broke down, and left the .struggle exclu
sively to the two machines. Manny's and Mc
Coriuick'f. The two machines were then to
be changed in presence of the Jurors, from
the c: pa- i!y of reaping to that of mowing.
M:.nnj e made the change in one n^mite. M<:
Corrr.i- k's in twenty miuutee witii three men.
Kuch maehine made one cut through the field
of g-ass ar.d back. Manny 's machine doii g
the lost of the two. Then the chang-- was
mode a .ain leaping and in tho saino time
respectively as before. Then both machines
were taken into a wheat field. Manny - ma
chine cut three -wuths, and with an easo <f
a-tli :i and perfection of work, wai h t'l^y
; !a".d it far bej.-nd any further competition;

ultimate destiny of the New World.
TeSrC Volunteers ?The Commissi..ner of
th'? lien ral Land Oflrse has rendered an im
fertant ?? bounty land'' decision as follows,
The act approved tho 13thof May, 1M6, au
thi?i"iac?> the President of the United Stater-,
among other things, to call far aud accept tho
pcrvices of any number of volunteers, not ex
ceeding fifty thousand, to *erve for twelve
months, or during the Mexican war, unless
sooner discharged.
The 1th section of said act provides that
.??aid volunteers shall, when so called and re
ceived. and while remaining in service, be
subject to the rules; and articles of war, and
shall It. i>i nil retfrcts, (except as to clothing
and pay,) placed ou the \ume footing with
similar rorj>< of the United States army, and
;n lieu of clothing, they arc to rcccivo addi
tional pay.
It is further provided by tho 5th section of
said act thi*i?aid volunteers shall be accepted
by the President of the United states in com
panies, battalions, squadrons, and regiments.
It is also provided by the 9th section of said
act that whenever the militia or volunteers
are so csllc-d and received into the service as
aforesaid under its provisions, that they shall
have the organization of the army of the
United States, and shall have the same pay
and Allowance, except as provided by the 4th
section of said act.
Under the above act. the Governor of Texas
called li1'" service of the United States a
eertain numb:? vf for twelve months,
who wore ncrepied by !le President, and who
served on the frontier of Texas trom August to
December, H4S, which was after the termina
tion ? f th,% Mcxiean war.
As ttaid troops were called into service by
virtue of an act of Congress, which act places
t'uem on a footing, in ail rcspects, with United
Mates troons; and as it is shown that they
were not at any time, during the period which
they served, engaged in actual war, they are
r.ot embraced within the provisions of tho act
of 3d March. 1855. nor any other be>unty land
act. ??'
The llurda.?Some of our eoUimporarie3 in
tue touth are uui?r a delusion as u> the exie
tcnce of such a party at this time in New
York. There are actually not five thousand
persons in the whole State disposed to v?te the
Hard ticket, or wc are much mistaken Ouite
half the delegates and three-fourths of the
outsiders who attended their late convention
at Syracuse were mcmbeis of Know Nothing
lodges, or avowed sympathisers with Know
Nothingisnv among the latter class being Mr.
Daniel S. Dickinson, who find6 it for the in
terest of Know Nothingism to deny the soft
impeachment at times, to the infinite amuse
u?ent of his intimates at Bingbamton, who are
all well aware that his whole political affec
tions are now wrapped up in the succcss of
Know Nothinginn. The Hard State commit
tee assembled a few days since in New York
city, and one-half of the members present
were as notoriously members of Know Nothing
lodges as " Ned Buntline" or Mr. President
Barker themselves?one of the secretaries of
the committeo being a Know Nothing nominee
for a State office.
Their pretence for keeping up a Stato Hard
organization is simply to cheat the handful of
impracticable Hards left into refusing to vote
for tho Soft candidates?not that they them
selves have the slightest idea of voting for
others than the regularly nominated Kuow
Nothing candidates. The Hards in the City
of New York, where the organisation was,
not many months since, stronger than that of
the Softs, with E. B. Hart, Ed. C. West, J. B.
Haskins, Daniel E. Sickels, et al, at their
head, have gone back into Tammany.
Collator Atchison.?"We coincide with the
New York Tribune in the belief that there
must bo something wrong in the news of the
rc-clection of tho Hon. David B. Atchison to
the United States Senate published in our tel
graphio columns on Saturday. Tho last two
ballots are said to have been a* follows :

The Legislature of Missouri is composed of
101 members; so much less than a quorum
mu:t have participated in this election, if it
came off as is alleged. According to our un.
dcrstanding. the Legislature of Missouri were
not to have assembled until December.
It can hardly fail to turn out, it strikes us.
thai there 13 something of a hoax at the bot
tom of this news.
Dead?Our Alexandria readers will hear
with great pain of the death of tho late ven
erable Dr. Carson, particulars of which are in
our obituary columns to-day. He was a gen*
uine Irish gentleman?one of fine attainments,
chivalrio ideas, genial disposition and benovo
lenoo of hicrt that knew no limit but his
means. He lived a life time in Alexandria,
where all knew him but to love and confide in
Navel Reform?We believe that tho Presi
dent to-day signed tho order under which the
Secretary of the Navy will carry out the deci
sions of the Naval Reform Board rccentiy in
session in this city. To-morrow, wo presume,
the Union will contain a sort of nummary of
the ..-ction of tho President under the board's
recommendation, without the names of those
who are to be dropped or pat on leave-cf-ab

Tha Epidemic in Norfolk and Portsmouth.
There is no abatement in the ravage* of the
yellow fever in Norfolk and Portsmouth, and
the mortality is still alarming.
To the list of deaths heretofore published
we add the following :
Richard Gatcwood, jr., B. B. Walters. Wil
son B. Sorey ; F. Johnston, wife, und child;
Mr. Whitt?.-n, Miss Saunders, Mrs. Harwood,

There were 10 deaths in Norfolk on Friday,
and 3j up to 2 o'clock on Saturday. Richard
(latewood, jr., Esq., is among the dead. This
is the second editor of the Norfolk Boacon taken
off by the scourge. Truly, it may be said
that death lores a shining mark! Mr Gate
wood was in tho thirty-third year of his age,
und died after six days' illne.s, a martyr to
human suffering.

The correspondent of the Baltimore Ameri
can gives the following account of the location
of a camp and tho pitching of tho tents at
Camp Falls, dated the 3th icst., on board the
steumer Georgia:
We havo just arrived and cast anchor
above Cranty Island. Our party of Baltiino
leans consisting of a detachment of the night
watch of Baltimore and a committee of that
spirited Military Corps, the City Guards, un
der the immediate command of Col. John B.
Bay, are making active preparation to disem
bark with their camp equipage, and go to the
island for the establishment of their humane
barrack. The morning is a beautiful one aud
all seem disposed to vie with each other in ef
forts of usefulness.
S o'clock, a. vi.?The Bichmond steamer Au
gusta has just boarded us, with a sub-cammit
teo of tho Hamptou committee recently in
Washington, and through theirchairman, Rev.
Dr McCabo, changed the whole order of things.
Tue camp is not to be established at Craney
Island uu account of the want of water, wood,
and other facilities indispensably necessary to
such an establishment. Beside* a much more
eligible location has been obtained between
Old Point Comfort and Hamnton, upoa the
land of Joseph negar, Esq., fvho has gener
ously tendered it for this purpose, and to which
wc are now preparing to go.
Having arrived off the shoro of the cho?en
groucd, the men immediately set to work land
ing their c a tup eouipago, whilst the surveyor,
under the direction of William E. Bartlelt,
ljsq.. of the City Council of tfajtimore. pro
ceed..* to mark off the ground, whicb wai> di
vided so a* to make six avenues, each 50 feet
wide by 220 feet long, a 22 feet alley running
in the rear of each. All th?^ military tents
were pitched by 3 o'clock in the afternoon ;p
the presence of the Hampton committeo, who
were present, and to whose old good Vir
ginia hospitalitv we were indebted for many
substantial evidences of regard. The Ameri
can flag was raisud, and the esipp named.
? Camp Falls" is situated immediately on
the ' Hampton Roads" shore, between Old
Point 0oaf6it Hampton; tho ground is
the highest in the vicinity, and bcnutiiully
adapted to tho purpose.
During to-morrow (Sunday) it is expected
that under the direction of the Howard As?o
eistion ul Norfolk quite a number of rofu^cij
will bo sent to the camp by the steamer J E.
C >ff<e. wiucu will be enabled Ui land the in
within a short distance of th.? beaoh
Thus, within a few hours, through the phi
lanthropic labors of a few benevolent spirit',
ha? been erected ??Camp fall*"?its object
the relief of the distressed, and a refuge trom
the plague. Xho flag that floats over it is not
a more lit emblem of a nation's glory than its
snow-peaked tents .are of the humane purposes
for which it has been established.
The campground is within sight of Old Point
Comfort, and the sudden springing up of a
canvass city, in the wild? of v irginia, attract
ed the attention of the officers of Fort Monroe,
whose curiosity brought them over in their
boats. They expressed great admiration as to
the manner in which the camp was located,
and the tents pitched, as well as at the rapid
ity with which the work wai executed.
The different avenues through the camp
were named after prominent citizens of Balti
more. Norfolk, and Port-mouth. There is
u Wood is avenue," 4 Ferguson avenue."'
" Hinks avenue," 'Fiske Avenue," and oth
er? that I do not remember.
When the Georgia left ?? Camp Falls," the
work of improving tho grounds was still goinir
on, and straw and boards were being brought
to make the tents more comfortable.
In Port-mouth, 22 deaths were reported on
Friday, and 50 new cases; and 15 deaths up
to 2 o'clock on Saturday. Tho disease is
spreading to the surrounding country.
Among the rocent deaths arc William and
Robert Rurton, George W Chambers, jr., W
n all ace, Lewis Crammer. Thos. Mountjoy. two
children of J. D. Cooper, son of Mr. JSnratt,
Miss Reed. J;;c>b Miller,child of Mrs. Bueha

Williams, John Lovctt, and Mrs. Morton.
Dr. Wm. Collins and his brother, Dr*. Mar
shall, of Baltimore, and Bryant, of Philadel
phia, and Harry Fereby. are reported to be
in a dying c< ndition. Dr. Howell is dead,
also Wm. Brittingham. l>r. Pete, of Pens
mouth, and Joseph Mickey arc sick. Dr
llnlges has left Portsmouth for a few days to
recruit. l)r. Mobster is still working hard,
though nearly broken down.
^ Mayor Fisk has so far improved as to walk
about his room.
t A member of the sanatary committee states
tuat there are 6(10 eases of fever in Ports
mouth an 1 the Naval Hospital at this time,
and that scarce a family has entirely escaped
the ravages of the disease. At the Academy,
which is used a.- an orphan asylum, there arc
100 children.
Mr. in. B. Collin.> leaves this afternoon for
Portsmouth, whither he goes to assist in nurs
ing tho sick. Mr. C. is a native of that town,
and has but just returned from a mission of
love and labor in that locality: and hearing of
the increase of the epidemic and the conse
quent demand for nurses, he ha- nobly stepped
forward to r.^i.it a sceond time in relieving the
distresses of the fevcr-strickcn patients. May
health attend him in his ministrations !

The Transcript also contains the following:
" Among tho deaths which we have recorded
are good and true men. We must commemo
rate John Woodley. The writer of this helped
to close his eyes, and saw the last of hiui on
earth. A more noulc-heartod, generous, kind
benevolent and exemplary young man we ha\e
seldom known. John D. Cooj>er was a sterling
man, honest, industrious and firmly adherent
to principle. Bet we must pass on. The
Mayor of Portsmouth, wo arc happy to tell
our friends, is dccidedly improving; the fee
bleness and prostration under which ho has
been laboring for some days are giving placo
to comparative strength, and with him, the
fatal crisis has passed. Wc saw the Rev. Mr
Devlin on Wednesday, lie had passed through
the diseaso and was out again doing his duty
and then on his way to visit a sick stranger
who had sent for him. and who had coiuo
amopg us to help us. We trust that oil and
wino will bo poured in and that his wounds
will be bound un. The fever continues as bad
as ever. Indeed, the number of deaths durin?
the la*t week has exoeed^d that of any previ
ous week. Drs. Cobert, Webster. Walters, and
all, are hard at work. More physicians have
been written for to supply the place of those
sick, and to divide tho labor, which is and has
bjen too arduous for the few engaged in the
charitable work."
In another article, spoakingof the volunteer
paysicians, tho s ime paper says :
"Seven of these noble men are now at tho
hospital sick. Drs Bryant, Asprill, Crowe,
Kennedy, Howie, Mar-hall and Smith. We
learned that Dr Bryant was ill, but he was
much better yesterday. Tho Rev. Mr. Chis
holm. of ftt. John s Church, who ha3 been so
encrgotje in the discharge of his duties among
the stcit and dying, we conversed with yester
day morning. 1|0 vas then apparently as
well as the writer of this. He is now an in
mate of the hospital. John W. Collins, E*u
who was getting well, has relapsed and may
not live out the day. The sun is out in ull his
Kiwy and heat, and tho roofs are dripping with
the night's due 4*1*4illation of moisture.1*
At the last accounts from PojUiacath neither

presented as being quito ijL
