SUNBUHY AMERICAN AND SHAMOKIN JOURNAL.
A LETTER FROM I.OLA MOXTF... Trbmont House, March 29, 1852. To the Editor -tf the Boston Transcript ; Sir In your edition of Saturday you mw fit lo lake exception to a visit paid by mo to evo-al of your public cchooU, in company with two ol your resectable fellow-citizen. This exception was based on repoit prend 'to tny detriment by my Jesuitic emtiniea, mid as to the truth or falsehood of which you n.ert that you know nothing. Now permit me to ask you where is the most harm, in a visit by a stranger to the most wonderful and interesting of all your insti tution?, or in the base, false, dishonest, tin- gentlemanly, uncharitable construction y on have put upon it J Do you think, sir, that one of those children would have had an impure or improper thought connected with my visit if it had not been put into their heads by yourself Believe me, sir there is often more impurity in the mind of the Ciitic than in the object of his criticism. Tlieie are men who would stand before tho Venus of Medici and the Apollo of lielvidere, and see nothing in them but thpir nudity There are men living, like Paul the 4th, who would object to the painting of the Last Judgment, and throw a bronze drapery over the statue of Prudence, and like Mi chael Angelo to the Pope, I might reply to yon, sir, "Reform the world, and these usper stuns trill reform themselves." Yon think it improper, sir, for a "danse ne" to visit one of your public institutions ? Did your fellow citizens think it improper to accept the cap stone of the Hunker Hill Monument from Fanny Elssler 1 Do you think it improper for your public institutions tl aily to receive willing contiibulions from the hard earned talary of artists ? If you do, yon might make it tho subject of your next poem, for I am informed that yon are, or have been a poet, though I never should liave suspected it from so illiberal, ungentlo manly, and immoral constructions. If you do not, pray do not open your mouth again on tho subject of the visit of an artist to a public institution. With regard to tny talent, it would be un becoming in me to speak or quote but to say that I have ever posed myself in this country in any other quality than that of at) artiste, i false in the llno.it of whoever may fay it. I had the ofler made to me when in Eu rope, of entering America triumphantly. Triumphant arches were offered to be erect ed for me on the pier, garlands to be hung across my way, flowers spread over my track, and my carriage drawn to my hotel by human hands, amidst showets of boquets and vivas. All this I declined. If there is any thing that I thoroughly detest, it is null ing. I even declined, on arriving, the free use of the telegraph, which was courteously tendered me by the gentlemanly proprietors, and in no case have I made interest to buy the good opiniun vf the journals. It hail cost me to return to the stage scald ing tears, but 1 was determined if I succeed ed at all, it should be lesitimetelu in the pur- baldachino of St. Peter at Rome, so have 1 1 bowed, silent, content and happy before the only successful realization of a principle to which I have devoted my life. And now, when I, as a stranger, wish lo pay a visit to those nurseries of your noble statesmen your Webster, your Calbouns, your Clays yon cry out against me ns an intruder 1 Fie on you, sir ! for an ill bred snarling cur, unworthy to stand at the portal of public opinion. -I had been told that you were a good lit tle fellow, and published a good little paper, thonah you did fail as a play 'vriter. Stick to yonr new trade, sir, it suits you, and praise your Vespucci and other favorites as much as you please but do not interfere with me in my innocent amusements, and abuse me for visiting, with respectable gen tlemen, accompanied by one of their wives, a publio institution in which they had placed, for education, their own children. Above all, if you would have the charac ter of an honest man, never give circulation to aspersions of the chaiacter of a lady of which you know not liintr, which are false in themselves, and which, for my own pait, I DErV ANV MAN MVINll TO PROVE.

Congrers has re-enacted by a resolution, Ihe compromise mrasurei of last session as a finality. There wa a great fluttering and staving ofTby the non committalisbi. This may be considered as a successful move in favor of Fillmore and Webster against Gen. Scott, vhose position on the slavery question has not been-defined. The General must now show his hand. The passage of the resolution is also an en dorsement of the cause of Gen. Cass. The following is the resolution offered by Mr. Jackson and amended by Mr. Hillyer, of Georgia, and was adopted by a vote of 100 yeas to C5 nays. Resolved. That tho series of acts passed during the first session of Ihe Ihirty-first Congress, known as the Compromises, uro recanted ns a dual adjustment and a pernio nent settlement of the questions therein em braced, and should be maintained and exe cuted as such.

I was counselled by seveial of my friends in New York lo purchase the esteem of those whose mind had been inlluenced by the Je suitical stories in circulation with regard to me, by giving the receipts of my first night lo public charities. The idea was repna nant to me, and I refused doing so till the eve of the close of my engagements, when I have invariably given them a benefit, when 1 could obtain the permission of Ihe directors of the theatre. I speak of Jesuitical lies. 1 mentioned to a few fiieuds in Paris my intention of com ing to America on an arti.Mic tour. Imme diately all the journals from Canada lo Mex ico are (loaded with communications heap iZ upon mo all tho epithets in ihe vocabu lary blackganl. It was also said that I tamed wild horses, horse-whipped gendarmes knocked flies with a pistol ball off ihe bald heads of aldermen, fought duels, threw peo ple overboard for the sake of saving them from drowning, and a multitude of other similar feals. Now, sir, do you see ihe sly, Jesuitical, infamous design of all this ? It was simply to uosex me. To deprive mo of that high, noble, chivalrous protection, which is so universally accorded to women in this counlry by generous men. Very well, sir, did they succeed ! I have been now four months in this country ami my succpm, instead! of ttiiiiinit-hinir, has in creased from the lirst moment up 10 the pre sent time. Americans are no fools, sir, and believe me, though tks-y may bn imposed upon at first, Ihey soon come again to their senses, J finally arrived here in your tri mountain city, pleasantly associated by me with my own adopted name, and which 1 had more curiosity to see than 1 ever had had for the far famed city of the seven. The latter was the heathen mystio number, but the former was that of the Christian Tiinity, and was connected in my mind with those :ioble, reif-sacrificing, devoted men, who were ever the objects of my udtniiulior.. I bad twice been placed under the protection of its citi zens once by my parents in India on a voyage to England, and once on my pilgrim- uge lo thin country, and in neither case had 1 cause lo regret Ihe choice that had been made for me. I say my pilgrimage to America, for it was indeed a pilgrimage. Not such as was mad by those gallant, noble men who steered iheir barque lo Plymouth rockbut more like ihst lover would make lo the mistress of hit heart; a disciple of Moham et to his long dreamed of Mecca, a Catholic devotee to the adored and worshipped shrine of his saint. And as a lover at the feet of his adored mistress, a Mahomrnedao befora Ihe self-suspended coflin of ihe prophet- irnel worn pflhgnno juosiiate befor the Til IS WEATHER. II there is any thing that people claim the privilege of grumbling about, it is the weather. And really they have had good cause the past two months. Winter has not only lingered in the lap ol spring but, on Monday last, when he should have qui etly retired from his throne, with his icy and stormy sceptre, he reasserted his sway with all the rigors of a snow storm and ac companiments such as would have graced his best efforts in January. The sun has scarcely been visible for the last five or six days, and the result is, slush and mud un der foot, and clouds and vapor over head. Ah ! for the balmy breezes of May, and mooniigtu nights ol June. Tttl.MMING SHEARS. Mr. George Zimmerman of this place, one of our most skillul mechanics, has in vented and made a pair of shears for trim ming liuit and other trees, that will prove eminently useful. One of the arms of the shears is screwed into a socket, fastened to a pole of any desired length. The shears are kept open by a spring, and closed by means of a lever, with a small roller or pul ley on the end, pressing on the olher arm of the shears. A cord is attached to the lever running along the pole, by which the shears are worked. It is a handsome piece of workmanship and operates admira bly, culling oil" a twig as thick as a finger without difficulty. OtT" David Taggart, Esq., of Norlhum- Clas,. Diuc.A.r.-j.

This is an important post, especially during a ARH ILTLRAL MEETING. The Northumberland County Agricultural Society met nt the Court House, in Sunbury, on Monday, April 5, 1852, at 2 o'clock, P. M.,'for Ihe purpose of electing officers, for the coming year. The meeting was called to order by David Taggart, and on whose motion, J. It. Priest ley took the Chair in the absence of the President. In pursuance of the object of the meeting, ihe Chair appointed a committee of seven to report officers, to wit : David Taggart, Jas. Pollock, Samuel John, Wilson Hutchinson, Robert M. Frick, Daniel Hilbish and Benja min Gearhart. After a short relirement, the committee came in and reported the following named olhcers : President SAMUEL HUNTER of Upper Augusta. ico Presidents.

Fegely, Wm. Deppen, . Ilolshoe, Michael Lenker, Isaac Raker, John Hine, John B. Heller, H. J. Read- er, Charles Riddle. The report was unanimously adopted. John I'. Wnlfinger offered the following resolution, which was adopted item can. Resolved, That this Society recommend to all farm and lot owners within the County, to whitewash all Iheir buildings and fences put up in the rough or wilh unplaned boards, lor thest reasons. 1st, Because whitewash ing is neat and cleanly. 2d, Because it op erates as an effectual preservation of wood against decay. 3d, Because it also acts as a prevention to fire. 4th, Because the fiee use of lime around our premises has a constant tendency to purify and render wholesome the air; and lastly, Because if generally practi sed it would give our towns and country seats a pleasant and beautiful appearance. Mr. Taggart asked leave to say a few words in behalf of the paper which he held in his hand, (The Pennsylvania Farm Jour- dal.) Ile spoke of its very low price, and said it was ihe only Agricultural paper in tho English language, published in the State, and as such was enlilled to our consideration and patronage. This was the 13th number he had received and he was not afraid to assert that every number was worth the full amount of his yearly subscription, lie appealed lo gentlemen w ho had received it, if it was not so. The Slate of New York was able to sup port 4 or 5 such journals and some of them wilh subscription lists of 30 and 40,000. It was hard indeed if Pennsylvania could not sustain one, and sustain it handsomely. The Press had always been considered by him as the Right Arm of every Art anil Science, which it had been established to advocate, and was not the less so in the Ait and Sci ence of Agriculture. He moved the following resolution which was unanimously adopted. Resolved, That this Society highly ap- MASSAIRE OF THE IREW OF TWO ENGLISH (HUPS Advices have been received at Lloyd's, communicating Ihe details of two most flight- fill events at sea Ihe massacre of the com manders and portions of tho crews of the British ships Victory of London and Herald of Leith. The Victory, on the 6lh of December, sailed from Cumsingmoon with upwards of three hundred Coolies on board for Callno, and a general cargo. On Ihe afternoon of ihe 10th, belween three and four o'clock, the Coolies made a rush into Ihe cabin, and with little difficulty possessed themselves of the ship's arms. The slauu'htor commenced Henry Walt was killed and thrown overboard. Mr. Mullets, tho master; Ihe second-mate, James Manso, and Ihe conk Ed. Bailey, were each murdered in succession. Mr. Flatrg was kept to steer the vessel. They then en deavored to beat up tho coast to Coehia Chi na, but that being difficult, ihey bore away for Pnlo L"bi where the ship was ultimately brought to an anchor. Finding a convenient place on coast where they had brought up, they went ashore, carrying off wilh Ihem a considereable amount of the cargo. Tho Herald, under Ihe command of Mr. Lawsoti, left Shanghai for Leith in the courso of last October, and in addition to the master and his wife, Mrs. Lawson, there were on board two European males, a stew ard, earp'inter, a cook, a Portuguese seaman twelve Manilla men, and a Manilla boy. Some four or five days after the Herald had left Shanghai tho Manilla men appeared to have planned u scheme for the purpose of destroying l!ie whole of the Europeans on board. They murdered Mr. Lawson, the carpenter, and all the officers, except the chief male. Tho villians then attached heavy weights to the legs of the bodies, and taking them on deck, threw them overboard. Tho poor mate had not breathed his last when brought on deck, ami lie was tieard to say, ''Good Good !" (Vie of the Manilla men, a gunner then look ihe command, mid appointed two of his companions as lirst and second offi cers. In the course of live or six days the wretches recommenced ihe slaughter. The steward, llio cook, and Ihe Portuguese were liedup and told that there last hour had arri ved. The steward, it would seem, made an ap peal to them for mercy, when tho fellow who noted as chief mate split open his head with a hulchet, and, lo render his death more certain, run a long knife through his body. Tho Portuguese and tho cook, who was a native of the coast, contrived to move the wretches to spare them, nod they were eventually released, bid enjoined to keep the greatest secrecy.

Judge Jordan delivered a most excellent charge to the Grand Jury on the nature and character of their duties, to which they and the Car listened with respectful atttention and which, we are cer tain, was not without its effect. 3y In another column will be found the proceedings of a meeting in Shamokin township, in relation to the subscription to the Susquehanna Rail Road. We fear our friends have taken a one sided view of the subject. Much as 01 r public works have cost, the people and the State have alrea dy more than realised the amount, from the improvement of the country and the en hanced value of land and agricultural pro ducts. There are lew farmers who do not save in the transportation of fish, salt, plas ter, grain, fee, treble the amount of their State tax. The Susquehanna Rail Road will prove one of the most profitable in the country, tf this there u scarcely t doubt by means of the New York and Erie Rail Road. By this route Elmira will be about 2")." miles from Philadelphia am! 2S8 from New York, and as the Pennsylvania route will be not only 33 miles shorter, but much more favorable in its grading, and there fore more accepla'.de lo travellers, many who have a dread of the New York and Erie Road from Elmira to New York, would much pref.-r traveling even to that city, through Philadelphia over the Petin- sylvania improvements. I KT Seven additional miles of the Penn sylvania Central Railroad were opened on the 1st i nst. It is the first section of the mountain division, and avoids the most se rious obstructions on the Portage Road. The unfinished portion of the road is pro ceeding rapidly towards completion. ty Land Warrants are made assigna. ble by a late act of Congress.

Mr. Douglas presented the petition of Henry O'Rielly, of the Western Telegraph lines, proposing to establish a line of com munication, by mail ami telegraph, from the Mississippi river to the Pacific ocean. Mr. Douglas said I he petitioner asked no money nor land, no dentition nor gifts ; but that his line of telegraph may bo protected by the military posts of the Government. As military posts have been authoiized in that Territory, he asks that, instead of being placed in large bodies, they may be put in station of twenty men, nt a distance of twenty miles apart. Detachments from each of ihe posts could carry tho mail. Thus tho telegraph, the mail, and the emi grants could be protected by the same line of military posts. If this bo done, Mr. O'Reilly thinks ho can, in two years from this time, have European news published on the Pacilio in two weeks from the time of its leaving Europe.

Some of the Whigs from the North voted for one resolution nnd not for the other ; but the Fillmore, or true blue administration Whig-, came nobly up I" their lak, and so did the constitutional D 'rnncrats, together with a goodly portion of tli fire-ea'eis, and some of the Fiesoilers.
