AttHIVAL or.TIIK EMPIRE CITY. Ju-fi'i Ravage of the Cholera. Nkv York, July 8. Tha steamship Em pire City nrrireil here, thi afternoon, Irom New Orleans, via Havana and Key Westr 'having left Havana oi the 28th lilt., and Key Went on lhe 2!th. She report that (he steamship Philadelphia had arrived at Havana fionAspinwall, but in consemience of having lhe cholera on board was r.ot per mitted to enter lhe harbor. On tho second day after lhe Philadelphia aailed from As pinwall the cholera broke out among the crew and passenger, and by the time she cached Havana forty of them had died, among whom was Mr. Birdsall, the U. S.' Mail Agent. On arriving at Havana Phila delphia was ordered off and proceeded to Key West, whero she would land her pas sengers. The authorities at Havana would not even allow the ship to remain two miles outside the harbor for the purpose of obtain ing fresh stores. The Empire City brings about 80 passen gers. From tlie rnnoma Stnr, June 17. NEWS I ROW BOGOTA. fly tho late English mail, we received full files of Bogota papers, fmm them we learn that Mr. Arosemena's bill, proposing the erection of the State of the Isthmus, has lint passed the Senate. The representatives readily admitted and approved the new law though we believe their decision must have been greatly influenced by Mr. A.'s pre. sence in the Chamber. The Senato had no great advocate in it ; the bill was therefore considered very coolly, and coolly laid aside It was said that such an important measure ought not to bo adoptel without consulting the people of tha Isthmus. This is the fiist time tha Senate thought of consulting the people. We think, however, that so far as tho people of the Isthmus are concerned) they care little or nothing whether lhe bill passes or not. We have no desire to com ment on the subject at present. The rojos, or red republicans, have not been idle. They brought an accusation against the Archbishop, a man respected by all who know him (except the rnjos,) and easily succeeded in having him banished. The good Archbishop is now on exile. All this is done through a feigned respect for the law, but we see more plainly in the matter. Tho Archbishop is General MoS' quera's brother, and that accounts for every hin&. It will bo remembered that General Mosquera and General Herran, former Presi dents of New Granada, were also pjected from tho Senate. In fact, things are done in this country which would astonish even the Turks. The forced loan did not pass. The Presi dent is authorized to negotiate a voluntary loan, cither at home where there is no mon ey le be had, or abroad, where it will not be given. The President is also authorized to raise an army of Ihiity thousand men, end to declare war against any nation or nations aiding Flores, in his attempts against Ecu ador. By a degree dated lhe 14th of May, Con gress has ceded the Island of Mansanilla to the Panama Railroad Company ; also lhe right of property over such ground as the company may recover from the sea, at the two extremities of tho rail road. The de cree prohibits all persons fiom travelling over the rail road, olherwlso than in the company's cars, and subjects those who in fringe this rule to a fine of 200 reals, or lo CO day's imprisonment. LATER FROM THE I'LAI AMD SANTA FE. Gentlemen arrived at St Louis from Santa Fe, bring intelligence of the return of Gov. Calhoun, lhe state of whose health prevents a longer stay in the Territory. Previous to his departure, the headquarters of that divis ion of lhe army had been removed again to Santa Fe. The reports of sickness among the troops and trains en route for Mexico and Santa Fe had been exaggeialed, yet the chwlcra had prevailed lo an alarming extent The troops in command of Major Stein had rrived at Fort Atkinson, about half way to Saute Fe. Twenty men out of 183 up to that time had died of cholera. In Aubrey's train seventeen men were clown with the cholera at one time. He was fortunate in saving all who were attacked but one Tha cholera in his train, as well its among the troops had abated. fcince lhe Governor's departure, anil that of the Secretary, Col. Sumner has removed his head quarters from Albaquerrpie lo Santa Fe whether permanently or not, remains to be seen so that i( is now a civil govern ment, under control of the military. Pur hap things may go oa fmoothly under lhe resent circumstances, yet 1 am a little ap prehensive that some trouble may grow out of it. The Commissary Department, at Fort Union, as I have talegraphod you, was en tered a short time since, and a large amount of provisions abstracted. A parly of sol diers pursued a number of the thieves into the moutaius, and succeeded in capturing (wo of them. SUNBURY. SATURDAY, JILY 10, li.il. II. II. MASlSER, Editor nnd Proprietor. V. D.

' ' A number of "younff scamps are in the daily habit of bathing in lhe river in front of the borough and along side of the public road leading to Northumberland. No per lon can pass along the road, at any hour of the day, without seeing aslring ol naked boys squatting like turtles upon a log or running upon the beach. Such indecency can no longer be tolerated. It is the duty of parents to teach their chilJren to behave properly, and such practices are indicative of gross and shameful negligence and un faithfulness. The High Constable whose duly it is to guard the public from nuisans, pays no attention to this branch of his busi ness. One or two arrests and the imposition of the fine would teach the boys a whole some lesson. As the officers seem to be unwilling voluntarily lo perform their duty an effort will be made to place the mat ter complained of in such a form as will ef fectually abolish the practice of these dis graceful exhibitions. A number of our subscribers I equest us to say that they are determined to make information against all persons found outraging law and decency in the manner to which we have referred.

His honor, Judge Thompson, of the Common Tleas, declared that tavern keepers who sell liquor on Sun day come within the law of 179-1 relating to the observance of Sunday. A suit was brought before Alderman Mitchell against Messrs. M'Mackin to the penally. The alderman overruled the opinion of Judge Thompson and gave judgment for delend- rharacters of living light on the brightest page of our country's history.

Was celebrated here with all the hon ors, lhe belts were noi ait rung irom z o'dtirk t'.ll daylight, nor were the cannons fired during the whole of that period, as has been the custom. We were allowed to slumber undisturbed until we chose to hail the dawning day. The Artillery formed at their arsenal at an early hour on Siturday and proceeded to Emerick's Tav ern, about five miles cast of the town where they spent the day. At sundown they fired a national salute from the Mill Hill. Their procedings are more particularly no ted in another column. A large number of persons took posses. ion of that romantic spot in Shatnokin creek, Smith's Island, where they spent the day with the utmo.-t hilarity and enthusaism. A draft of Itieir proceedings we regret has not been handed uiand as we were not present. we can not give them as fully as we would desire. On Monday (he Guards paraded in honor of the day. Their ranks weie not well filled, but the precision of their movements and tha bearing of the men fully sustained their high reputation. A number of small parties were distributed among the pleasant woods ol the neighborhood, making them. selves free and independent, as young folks are and of right ought lo be, out ol respect to the proceedings ol their ancesters on lb same day 70 years ago. Not an accident occurred, and very few drunken men were visible in the street. CELEBRATION OF THE FOIRTII II V THE ARTILLERISTS. Accoiding to an arrangement previously made, the Artilletists mot on the morning of Iho 3d inst., in Market Square, Sunbury, preparatory lo proceeding to lhe placo of cel ebration.

WELKER of lhe bor ough of Sunbury, lo the democracy of this district as a gentleman in every way worthy of Iheir support, as lhe next candidate for Congress. Judge Welker is well known to all of us as a firm, tried and unwavering democrat himself one of the people, familiar with the views nnd interests of the farmer, laborer. mechanic and all the other classes of the community, and ever anxious and ready to do nil in his power lo promote their welfare The Judge is no olfice seeker, but the pco pie want his services in Congress and liav almost unanimously urged him to accept lhe nomination. The delegates from this pari of tho county will nil bo in his favor, nnd if the other townships will but do their duty to the country nnd themselves tho Hon. G. C. Welker will be tho unanimous nominee of the county. of Upper Mahanny and Jackson townships. July 10, 1852. For the American. OUR XEXT LEGISLATOR. Mr. Editor: As the time is approaching for the people to select o candidate for Legis lature of this county, wo would beg leave to present before them, lhe name of JOHN FARNSWOKTH Esq , of Upper Augusta township. M '. Farnswotth is a man of intelligence, of unimpeachable, integrity, nnd of fixed prin ciples. He is such a man as wo would have represent onr county. For a number of years, he has been Piolhnnolary of this county, and has (we believe) given eutiie satisfaction lt, all. For Legislature we want a man of sound reason, discrimination, and firmness. Such a man is Mr. Farusu orlh, and in ull the requisites for that office, wo confidentially assert that he is competent to perform the duties incumbent upon said office. He has always been a sound, unwavering, nnd consistent demociat, and if nominated Northumberland county would (we think) show her appreciation of him by giving him the largest majority we have rolled up for any man for years.

I'mm the gulden bonis of infan cy, his lifa has been passed among us. The peaceful occupation of the hn-bnndman kept him from the busy scenes of life, bill there is a circle of fiiends who know him and love him well, who miss his pleasant voice? nnd cheerful smile, whose bi.Eoms teel an itching void, and whose, ejes nro wet with the sad tear of sorrow. Intelligence and energy stamped their kgiprcss upon his manly blow. Industry gathered for him the reward she al ways bestows upon her votaries. A kind heart and uHet'tinuato disposiiinu madu his home, wheiu his sisicr gathered round, tho altar of his devotion, w huso quiet content ment he never left save when thu unsolicited voice of the people called him to serve them in the House of Repreceulatives. Worldly honor could not compensate him for lhe loss of tho society of those he best loved, and af ter one session ho returned lo tho home whero his heart was.

The surprise wilh whhh 1 received the nomination, was not unmiugled wilh painful soliiude, nnd ye! it is proper for mo to say that lhe manner in which it was conferred was peculi arly gratifying. The delegation from Nev Hampshire, with all lhe glow ol Stale pride, nnd ull the warmth of personal regard, would not have submitted my name to the Convention, nor would ihpy have cast a vote for me under circumstances other than those w hich occurred. I shall always cherish wilh piide and grat itude a recollection of lhe fact that that voice which first pronounced for me, and pronounced alone, came from lhe mother of Stales a pride and gratitude rising above any consequence that can betide me person ally. May 1 not regard it as a fact pointing to the overthrow of sectional jealousies and looking to the perennial life and vigor of a Union cemented by the blood of those who have passed to Iheir reward a Union won derful in ils formation, boundless in ils hope and amazing in ils destiny 1 I accept the nomination, relying upon an abiding devotion to the interests, honor and glory of the whole country, but beyond and above all, upon a rower superior to all hu man might, a Power which from the first gun of tho revolution, in every crisis through whioh we have passed, iu every hour of our acknowledged peril, when the dark clouds have shut down around us, has interposed as if to baffle human wisdom, out-march human forecast, and biing out of darkness the rain bow of promise. Weak myself, faith and hnpa reptse there in security, I accept the nomination upon tha platform adopted by the Convention, not because this is expsoted of ma as a candidate, l)ut be cause the principles il embraces command W 1 1 E R E AS James Curotheis and !
