Aad thia haa been the general oharao tat far health, for more than twenty jeara. In the ant eettlement of the plana, it eiflbred, in common with all near oooatrtea, from malarious dlaeaa ea, hui fbff twenty yeara it bae been al moat eworaiy exempt from them.

ThU eaaao abawdy from oklaatw of Brook vllie, and portiona of tit oo entry whuaw prosperity or adeeraity arfceis the bnaioeaM of the town. Add to thia the fail urea of Tenet and the Bur nn, to Hut uu.iuH ui e.'.vutHj faiinroa thai attested the in tare , di reotlj or indirectly, of the whom none munUy, and it is not very diffcult to int for the derangement in buai- ! the partial failure of run ny otbere, which followed. Tbott merchant owed many person of very mall means, and mot of thoae who wem required to foot the ezpenaea of the ratlaoad project, were our meohan ioa and laboring men, and men of mall capital. No wonder, then, that pecu niary embaraaameat ehould follow euch dieaatere. To this may be added another dis turbing element. After having done more than all otbere to induce the etil aena of thia vicinity to risk money and property in the enterpriae of building a railroad inducing aome to jeopar dize every foot of land they owned, and not jeopardising a cent himself, and after rraliaiog ahandeome fortune out of the enterpriae, by way of eala rj and ecjomiteion, the principal mo ver in the scheme, instead of remain ing to repair the losses sustained, by those who ware eroduiooa enough to embark ia she unfortunate adventure, reeolved to move to Iowa. With thia resolution came another, to make his now purchaao aa profitable as possible, by taking with htm aa many settlers aa poeaibU, and at the same time make another fortune, by large commissions on money expended in entering land by him for others. Thia haa taken from as many worthy aad induatrious nme. who bad loat largely in tbo rail road failure, who were compelled to seil their remaining property at what ever they could get for it, thus throw ing a large amount of real estate into the maiket at once,' and greatly depre ciating it value. But it baa done more. Such were the inducements to invest money in Iowa lands, that those who hove hitherto lent money to bus iness men, hara sent their surplus cash to Iowa, in investment that may be profitable and may not, and hun dreds have borrowed largely for the same purpose, thus removing from our midst most of the floating capital that has hitherto added to our business transactions. Bat, shall thia slate of affairs con tinue? To suppose so, is to manifest mtler ignorance of our resources and the laws of prosperity. As to the surrounding country, it never was more prosperous. The pri ces at which lands have recently sold, clearly indicate hat if those who have heretofore owned them, think they cam better themselves elsewhere, there ate others ready and willing to take ttoer sjeeae Lands never add higher han they am now, in the vieinity of Brookville. As to the town itself, it would be preposterous to suppose that with im unequaled advantages it will not vary aeon recover its loaaeu, and "PUIW lit TO Ttl'TK, TO . HM UM even outstrip its former seile With onr unequaled water power, already well improved, and capable of addi tional improvement, with tbo bound - 1 less wealth around us, in rich soil, and well improved farms and roada, and industrious and enterpriaing farmers, with the millions of pork, and corn, and wheat, and flour that must reach market through Brookville paekera. and merchants, and miliars, and pro duce dealers, Brookville can not long remain crippled. There ia too much inherent, unalienable vitality in the town and its surroundings. If its present population ahould leave it in stanter, a new and vigorous one wo'd be driven in, by the imperative laws of commerce. However great the wound, and however malignant the final, fare well atab given by aome, it will speed ily overcome all, and in a very short time exhibit signs of healthful life. Alreedy several who went away, in momenta of deapondenoy, wiah them selves back again. A few months of ehnking haa made them prefer health and smaller profiti, to what they have obtained in the exchange. There ia one element of future pros perity of Brookrille, not eateemed as its merit deserve. The unsurpassed educational faeilitiue afforded in our youthful but promieing Colloge, to- gether with the acknowledged health fulneaa of our town, offer toducomenta to men of famine and money, to mow hero, if it be bat until their children are educated, and then return to their farma or former homea. Already set oral afa inquiring after prop- erty for thia expree purpose. Many ot theae will engago In aomn business for tht lima being, and many will re- main after their families are educated. We speak advisedly, when we say that no town offer equal inducements to taffe persona. The educational faollb tits are unsurpassed by an Institution of it age, and our health is proverbi 1. whiiejust at tbie time, property, either to rout or sell, Is extremely low. Dut it aan not remain an long. Our ad vie to those who are not compelled to Mil, U to hold on patient ly Keep your property in good re- pair, nntUtothibeat advantage, and sell It only at a fair priee. Qreat Flrt At Matamora We ar in debt to Dr. Klteh for th datatU of a most disastrous fir aMat amora, .hieb oeenrted on he morn ing of th 1st Inst From the beat Information h eould gather before leaving, It originated In th Walker Mi'ls. about two o'oloek In tba morn ing. Thes Mills wer burnt, and the aardlng mills adjacent, and the Kubot torn milla, and warehouse, and two or three dwelling houses on tba north id of the street, and th thubtttt of John Armstrong, Isq. All the buil dings between th mills and the Wal ker store-room were burnt. This wae saved with great difficulty. The Oor done had bought th Walker milla last Hatnrday, and hail taken possession on Monday. The Kubuttom milla were to be aold next Friday. No inaur-an-m, unleaa it waa on Mr. Arm strong's grocery. The losses are eMtimnted as follows: Rubottom'a Betete, Ware house. Mills, the., The Gordons, Bleokledg it Lakin, in H,0oo 7,600. wheat nnu corn, John Armstrong, dwelling,', grocery, ko., S33.000, on which waa an insurance of 1.600. ,000. 1,600 7U0 Montague, A "Type of the Timaa." N'othinsr more pointedly indloatea the progress! re character of the pres ent age than the success which attends the promulgation of a scientific im provement in the orthography of our mother tootrue. Like all other time saving and labor-saving contrivances, that are constructed on philosophical principles, it ncods but to be examin ed and tested to be adopted; and ae there is no patent on it, by which its use may be controlled, no wonder it is rapidly coming into use. "The Typ of the Times," a very spproprtate name for the organ of this Reform, comes to us this year greatly improved in appearance, and exhibit ing every sign of prosperity and use fulness. It is printed in the reformed orthography, which differs so slightly in appearance from the old spelling that it may be read with very little hesitation; it in filled with miscellane ous and scientific reading matter of a superior stamp, excepting a few pages that are occupied with editorials and matters relating to the promotion of the phonetic cause. It is issued twice a month, 16 pages, at $1 per year. Longley Brothers Publishers, Cincin nati, O. Among tho indications of the pro gress of this reform, that have appear ed within a few months, is the publi cation, by the above firm, of a larga Dictionary in the new orthography, which is destined to rival in popular ity both Webster and Worcester. We commend this' subject to teachers especially, and to parents who have children to be educated. A Rich Hoax. One of the richest hoaxes of the season is the discovery of anew "oath-bound League," en dangering "the liberties of the peo ple." A few persons, for a joke, got up a pretended ritual, constitution, dec, sod had them printed in the Journal office at Indianapolis, but nev er called for them. They were thrown around as waste paper for awhile, and at last one swept into the street. Forthwith the Sentinel published it, and ail the Old Line papers follow suit as if something awful were disclosed. Petty Depredations. For some nine month our citizens have been rxposed to aome vexatious, depredation that demand the moet decided measures of correction At In .t sufficient information has been obtained, against the perpetratora, or a part of them, to enable the Courts to take cognisance of their conduct. The citizens owe it to themselves, to bet vigoroualy in the punishment of these offenders, by the employment, if necessary, of an assistant proaeou tor. Now that the hand of the law can be laid upon them, let its weight by felt. Beyond doubt, the same class have been engaged in the chick en stealing, orchard and vinyard rob bing, sign removing, and aimilar of fenaes that are less exeussble and more disgraceful than horse stealing. It should be no mitigation of their punishment that most of them are respectably ooaneeted. Prompt treat ment now, may save them from years of hard labor in the penitentiary, and it may save the people from the hor rors of incendiarism. We have no doubt that these same juvenile rogues were engaged In setting fire to tho college a short time ince. They should be arrested and punish ed at one. If thia oan not be done otherwise, the corporation should em ploy anight watoh, and if thia can not bo done, every man will be com pelled to wateh his own promises. In thia ease, wejrecommend a free use of powder and shot. It will bo a great favor to the perpetrators themselves, and to the community, to lay them on their backs a few weeks, until they havo time to learn a few of the rudl ments of good behaviour We have no language to express our contempt for suoh conduct. Per sona who would remove a gate from garden, would ateal from tho drawer of a stare If they had opportunity. There I nothing that they would not do. If they might escape detection. Out of reepeet to their friends, we withhold their names for the pmaent.

In Congress, last week Mr. Lane of Oregou called attention to the horrible sufferings of tho whites in Oregon, and Washington territories caused by the unchecked outrages, of the Indians, 200,000 of whom, of va rious tribes are located therein. He alluded to the frequent murders com mitted, and stated that no step of the administration had thus far been of service in restraining theae savages. Unless some severe step is taken the whites will be wiped out entirely. He earnestly appealed for an appropria tion of i 300,000, to secure the ser vices of friendly Indiane, who alone could in summer penetrate to the hi ding places and fortresses of the foe. He introduced a bill for that purpose, and tbo samo was referred to the Committee on Waya and Means. Mr. Campbell, Chairman of the Ways and Means, said the matter would be considered immediately.

Unioh. it provides that when the pop ulation shall amount to 93,420; the Legislature may provide by law for the election of delegates to form a State Constitution, and delegatee to be el ected by the representative district, each district to elect double the num ber of delegates to which it may be entitled to representatives in the Ter ritorial Legislature; and that at ad election all white male inhabitants tt yeara of age. who have resided sis months in the territory and three months in the district, and posses the o her qualifications of Hectors, shall be entitled. to vote. It also provides that sections sixteen and thirty-six shall be appropriated for the use of schools: that seventy-two sections shall be set apart for a State Universi ty, and ten sections for the erection of State buildings; that all the salt springs not excising twelve in number, shall be given to the State; and that five per eent. of the net proceeds of sales or Und shall be ijivvn to the State for internal improvements. This is an abandonment of the moet distinguished feature of Douglas's Kansas Bill. In addition to it being an amendment to that bill io providing for an crly admission of that State, it changes the terms of citisenship by requiring a residence of six months In the territory, instead of a mere "res idence," of an heur as the Iniquity provides.
