I have jnat carefully read eommnnl ntioo lifrned "W. Ii.

And now fight bere, IpI me my, that the facts conUin ed In that a-tlcle, (or mine,) were urged to be publlpried on the ground", that it w a duty owed to the people of yonr coonty, and that it vraj a great duly we owed to the people and oar country to expose treason and traitort, wherever they may be found! I notice the "Democrat'" correspondent makea some sweeping statements, after dom ing np the whole matter, an be thought, he triumphantly remarks), "thi whole thing ended as I ".opposed, a manufacture out of the whole clot))," shortly after which be, as I supposed, of having crushed at one monster blow, into oblivion, your correspondent ' Kappa" and the facts by him communicated. Indomitable Sampson 1 but is there not a resurectioo after death T yea verily, for bere Kappa is soated at bis desk opsin, penning down tbis communication, and it he or Judge Turner, or the editor of the Democrat, has aoy doubts about the existence of such a person whose real name is Bigned to this article, let them call at the school house, at the southern verge of of our village, where they will find him Gvb days each week, from 9 o'clock A. M. till 4 P. M , and the bul noce of the time at bis residence, near Lloyd's Store: Now gentlemen, I will simply say that yoor charges concerning the communication In question, aro base, unfounded and ungentle toaoly. I wrote the article published in the "American" of the 21st issue, sigDed "Kap pa." 1 communicated the facts just as 1 re ceived them from parties wbo heard them ex pressed by the Judge. Another reason why 1 should communicate the facta was, tbat, 1 resided sometime in Columbia connty, in which time I became personally acquainted with Rkubkn Lahimi, wbo was cue of tbe mec tbat left 11 e Judge's boose, on account of bis treasonable expressions, out really Mr. Editor, is there not something peculiar about tbe career pursued by those men who employed to watch the Judge's character? Why were those certificates obtained before anything was published concerning bis dis loyalty f Why such a fluttering after the publication of the article in the "American?" Does it not seem that the publicity of these statements was anticipated? Does it not look as if those treasonable expressions were intended to have been covered up by giving lifty cents sad a bag of wheat ? If not, why come and demaod certificates for tbe donation of tbe wheat and money before anything was said to the contrary ? Oh, consistency I Thou art a jewel 1 1 now repeat again thut tbe statement made, by tbe Columbia county men, of the Judge's treasonable expressions, is en' tilled to full credit, as the men stand high for truth aod veracity, and their affidavits would accompany this article if tbe time bad per' mitted, since tbe great outpouring of tho "Northumberland County Dumoctai" and its contribntor. Tbe accompanying certificates Fpeak for themselves, coainienl is unnecessary. WM. WALTMAN. Mcscr, Po., Oct. 1, 18C1. Miner, Pa., Oct., 2d 1861.

Washington lel( from his borne on the firl round, having received three bullets, two of which passed entirely through the body, entering at the right breast, aiid one of the quartette was also hit, but the two remaining nn hurt managed to get him away by supporting him on his horse. The body of Washington was con veyed to the'tjuartcrs of Colonel Waggoner. Ha lived for the space of half an hour, and never spoke save to utter once, "O. my God !' Tbe next day bis body was sent to tile rebel camp, under a flag of truce. In the pockets or Washington was found one hunJred dollar in United States gold cur rsncy and a splendid gold watch.

A number of fruit trees in Ibis place were distroyed and injured. C-3T Grant's Cornkt Band. The Brass Rand, under the leadership of Thomas D. Grant, left this place on Monday last for Harrisburg. Tbis Band is to be attached Jo tbe Forty fifth Regiment of Reserve Volun teers, and has gone to llarrieburg to join the Regiment. Several members of tbe Danville and Selinsgrove Bands have united themsel ves with this Band. tS Tuk booms at Williamsport and Lock Haven gave way on Saturday, caused by tbe sudden rise io tbe river, and io the evening the river, at this place, was covered with thousands of logs. Tbe loss will be immense to the lumbermen, as tbey met witb a similar misfortune last year. C3T Latb War Nkws.

Every family id town should have at least two or three vines, and every farmer a dozen. Tbe Isabel la is tbe standard and leading grape, and will always be cultivated, though there are new varieties tbat are deemed superior in some re' epects. Among these, tbe Concord is per haps tbe most desirable, as it is exceedingly hardy, and in some localities earlier. Tbe Catawba is a superior grape, but is rather late, and does not ripen well in this latitude unless in favorable locations. Tbe Diana, seedling from tbe Catawba, is several weeks earlier, and therefore to be preferred ; indeed some of tbe grape culturists place it at tbe head of the list. Jt is somewhat smaller lba the Catawba, aod, like that, perfectly round, and or a light red color.' Tbe Delaware is finely Suvered, but entirely too small. It is, however, a singular fact, that io this place Isabellus, very fine in size and flavor ripened as eurly as tbe 10th of September' and rather io advance of the Concord and Diana. There is perhaps, no better locality for grapes than this pluce and vicinity. We have seldom seeo a mildewed grape in tbis neighborhood. We are indehted to Mr. John V. Bocher for some very fine Isabellas, tome of tbe buo:hes weighing nearly a pouod, end all of very Cue flavor.,, C3T We were not a little surprised to learn that Mr. Brown, the candidate for Assembly, was circulating in Sbamokio a discreditable Btory, that Col. Wright bad told Major Dewart, tbat he would not have addresed tbe Union meeting at Sunbury on Saturday, if be bad known a Democratic ticket had been formed, and that be would vote tbe party ticket. Mr. Joseph Bird, who had beard Col. Wright's speech, immediately called at the hotel to see Mr. Brown, and exposed the contemptible story, which bore the impress of falsehood on its very face. Mr. Bird told Mr. Brown tbat Col. Wtighl advocated tbe Union ticket, and denouoced their party movements as little less than treasonable a', tbis time Mr. Brown gave as his authority, II. J.Slruuse, Mr. Beckley's clerk, both of whom are engaged io tbis ouenviable business Their cause must be desperate, iudved, to require such a sacrifice of truth aod conscience.

We replied by saying a man wbo would reiterate a charge, knowiug it falsity, did not posses the instincts of a geutlemun, and oecsssarily must be t fool or a knste, acd we think so stilt, . . - : ' v ' AND THB ORrlAMtSTAt. MAJOIt. Those who had supposed that Major Dswart was politically dead and bnrled, wiU ba surprised to find tbat bale not yal entirely defunct, bat make an occasional gasp after notoriety. When we dissected the corpus f this political rbarlatao,' several ? ,ince' aod wbi n hii requiem w- -,D8 b7 bI hi political i-- wnile tbey danced around th grave which bnried bis aspirations aod his hopes', we supposed that he would have been content to remain where fate and his own follies had consigned him. But since be Is determined to figure again in print, we shall bo obliged to gratify his aspirations by properly noticing big efforts. Tbe Major has very properly selected the ' While Fea ther" organ of tbe Breckinridge clique for his last efforts, under the following caption : "A Malicious Lie against Judge Turner Nailed." Tbat tBe Major should engage in aucb a vocation as tbe nailing of lies, may eeem strange to those who Bre aware of the " constitutional Infirmity" of bis nature, wbicb from infancy bas induced him to look upon virtue and veracity as conventional forms of society, entirely too stringent for gentlemen, like himself, of unbridled appetites and untrauimeled proportions. But the Major professes to be a man of taste in its broadest sense, and has given undoubted evideoce of bis fondness for variety io politics as well as iu morals and gastronomy. His voting in Congress for aod against "Lecotnpton," aud 6uully when be voted for that wicked tnea.' sure, after declaring -he would sooner lose his right arm than do so, is an exemplification of his talents in that line, though nothing more thao we predicted. Wbeo he sudden ly became converted to tbe doctrines of Judge Douglas, we felt satisfied that be was out of place and tbe alacrity witb wbicb he returned to his Breckinridge associates, after tbe death of tbat talented statesman, was perfectly in character, and therefore Dot surprising. But to the facts of tbe'easo. Tbe Major called on ns, as he says, when we were conversing with Shenu Waldron. and politely, though somewhat pompously, demanded tbe name of the author of "Kan- pa," pointing to the paragraph which author ised us to give it ' wbeo demanded on tbe part of Judge Turner." We remarked that be was not Judge Turner. lie said that par graph authorised bim to demand the name, We denied his right to do so, and said we had on idea that we understood the Knelish lan guage quite as well as be did, and remarked we were ready at any time, to give tbe name to J odge Turner when proporly requested but did Dot recognise any right on bts part, to make eucb a demand more than COO others, lie then pompously made another formal de. mand for the Dame. We then remarked we wonld not hesitate to give the name to Sher iff Waldron, if be desired it, but we must po litely inform him (the Major) tbat "it was a piece of impudence on his part to persist in such a demund. "Instead of tbis being mum. bled" it was so loud and emphatic, that it wa distinctly beard by Sheriff Waldron, Peter Oberdorf and all others present. The above stated facts we read to Sheriff Waldron before they were in type, and he authorises us to say tbey are strictly correct- Tbe idea I bat ''Mr. Mauser was much coo fused aud alarmed at bis sudden detection" is about as important a discovery as any one mightexpect from tbe M ajor, whose statements are generally as marvellous as tbey are absurd. We could have no motive whatever in with holding Mr. Wm. Waltman's came, whose communication came to us endorsed by one of tbe most respectable citizens io Muncy, and wbo, by letter, authorised us to give the name if demanded hy Judge Turner. So far from the Judge believing it a "trumped op Damn." he said be knew Daniel Waltman and thought he knew William also. Iflhn Jndge will enquire at Muncy, he will find all the in formation be desires, and more than will be agreeable. THE UMUN MfeETIMQ. The union Meeting on Saturday last wag well attended, though cot as largely from the country as it would bave been, bad not tbe severe storm of Friday night kept onr furmera at borne to repair the fences and other damages occasioned thereby. Tbe speech of Hon. Ileodrick B. Wright, member of Congress from Luzerne county , was most eloquent and patriotic. lie told hia bearers tbat be bad always been a demo crat, and should live and die one, but tbat a man who did not lay aside party issues, at aucb a time as tbis, was neither a patriot or a true Democrat, and was doiug the cause as much injury as au opco enemy to tbe gov ernment. The Breckinridge leaders exhibi ted the calibre nf their patriotism and brains, by trying to persuade some of tbefr meo not to listen to a distinguished Democrat, whom tbey eulogised bo highly last fall, because be was now in favor of a Union ticket, and denounced all party measures as treasonable to tbe country. Tbe speech was received witb continaeJ rounds of applause and many stout hearts were brought to tears. Col. Wright was elected to Congress last June by the Union party, and remarked tbat be bad twice as much majority as his Breck inridge opponent had votes. Judge Muynurd was loudly called for, but declined making a speech, as a matter of delicacy, but said be adopted Col. Wrigbts speech as bis own. . C3T Princihi.ks. Purdy, the crzy bair broiued editor of the "White Feather Demo crat, talks about principles. What principles does he, or tbe crew whose dirty work be 1 hired to perform, represent ? None in the world, but tbe "seven principle.," wbicb John Randolph defined to be the "five loaves and two fishes." What man amoog them is not now, aod has Dot beeo, intriguing for office ? Principles indeed ! Wbat a burlesque on common sense for these fellows to talk about principles. Purdy, of the Deviocrat, ask why the Youngmans, who are bachelors, don't them selves go to tbe war which be has been secretly opposing. Why don't tbe miserable caitiff go himself? There is no one wbo could be so easily spared aod would be to little missed. We wilt guarantee that this eommooily and that of Lewis burg, his former residence, would vote almost unanimously io favor of bi removal, as readily as for tbe removal of toy tbr noisioee.

Tbey bave got bold of a matter that will be as bad as the leather business was on some of us two years ago. They say that the new streets opened io Milton will cost at least $.)000, and as the county had lo pay already $101)0 damages to extend one of these streets, that it might be necessary to have some legislation to fasten this also on the county, aod that NoFey Bright would not do for that purpose.

Tbe following certificate is from gome of tbe best citizens of Mil too : "The undersigned citizens of Milton being personally rcquainted witb George Blain, of Cbilisquaque township, Northumberland couuty, he having been raised within sight of our town, and knowing bim from his youth up, cheerfully bear testim'ony to bis good character for troth aod veracity, and have undoubted confidence in bis integrity and varality.

M r. Beck ley's excurt that Dr. Masser opposed him, is a new discovery, and one of those conrenieot excuses tbat ant thao cao always get up whenever It Is necessary to cover np something he is ashamed of- Doting Mr. Beckley's electioneering campaign, the whole burthen of bis song was two terms and nothing else. Beckley bad repeatedly said that be must go for Dr. Masser on the principle of two terms) aod it is only of late, since the toils of the Breckinridge clique bave been thrown around bim, that be bas got op this miserable ex cuee that Dr. Masser had opposed him. Mr' Beckley very modestly says tbat Dr. Masser forfeited bie right to a second nomination by the party because one of bis clerks opposed Mr. Beckley's election. Mr. Beckley must think tbat he is tbe Democratic party. If this lust charge even were true, which it is not, it would be a miserable excuse, Tbe following statement of Mr. Braner must satisfy every one that there is nothing to jus tify Mr. Beckley's position : TO THE PUBLIC, Being requested by Dr. Masser to state my knowledge of bis position in tbe Protbon otary question last fall, I would state that I know he supported Mr. Beckley on the ground of the two term principle, I being a candidate ae iii net Mr. Beckley at the timo. Dr. Masser took the position, that as he intended himself to ask for a second second term, it was his policy and interest to support Mr. Beckley for a second term. CIIARLKS J. BRUNER. CJT Troth. An old adage says that "truth lies at the bottom of the well." This is. perhaps, tbe reason why Purdy, the editor of the bastard ' Democrat, located in tbe third story, so seldom gets at it. Perhaps no other wbite mao would have deliberately uttered a falsehood bo malignant io design aud so Btupid in character as tbe following, io his lust paper : Farmrrs 1 Whether Breckinridge or Dou glas Democrats, you are classed hy the Republican editors Masser and Youogman among tbe Secessionists. Does this man, or rather this miserable apology for a man, suppose that his readers are fools, aod that tbey are not capable of judgicg between fulsehood and truth? We know that some of his readers are intelligent men, who, although they may wink at the falsehood, cannot fail to despise the liar. That we should call Douglas Democrats secessionists, and tons call ourself one, is what no one but a fool would believe. There are many, however, who believe that Purdy's affinities are so nearly like one, that nothing but climate is wanting to bring him out full fledged. Perhaps hot house culture, even in Ibis lalita.le, might develop tbe plant bo as to be acceptable even to Jeff Davis him self. ts7 How to 11 avb Good Cidkr. Pro es sor Uornsford, of Harvard University, has re. cently published a recipe for improving and preserving cider, by means of wbicb tbe pro gress of the vinous end acetic fermentations may be arrested at pleasure aod the cider preserved in such a state as may be desired. We may add that less sugar and less sul phite of lime will auswer if the cider is a good, clear article, and made, as it should be, of clear, sound apples. We prepared excellent Cider last November without sugar, using only about bait tbe quantity of tbe sulphite of lime, which neutralize the acid, and will make the cider flat if more tbau the requisite quan tity is used. Put the new cider io clean casks or barrels, aud ullow it to ferment from one to three weeks, according as tbe weather is cool or wirm. When it has attained to a lively fer mentation, add to each gallon three-fourths of a pound of white sugar, and let the whole fer ment again until it possesses nearly the brisk, pleasant taste which it is desirable should be peimunent. Pour out a quarter of ao ounce of sulphite of lime for every gallon the cask ion' a ns. Stir nut. I it ib intimutely mixed, and pour the emulsion into the liquid. Agitate ti e contents of the cask thoroughly for a few miouies, and then let it rest that the cider may settle.. Fermentation will be arrested at once, and will rot be resumed. It may be bottled in the course of a few weeks, or it may be allowed to remain in the cask and used on draught. If bottled it will become a tpiikling cider, better tbao what is called champagne wine. Prof. Uornsford, of Cambridge, was the first to use tbe sulphite of lime for this pur. pose, aud to him is due tbe credit of calling attention to its usefulness. Jt is io no respect deleterious, me suipourous acid is entirely in soluble and remains at tbe bottom of the vessel. Tha writer has cider prepared io this way two years since, which has remained un changed, and is now a beverage of unsurpassed evcelleuce. The mlphite of lime, oot the sul jihutes, must b used.

Roofino We invite the attention of our readers to the advertisement of Messrs. JOANS it CROS LEY, New York, in another column. The numerous experiments made for the last Tew years, to produce a substitute for tin, slate and shingle roofs, have nt last led to a perfect triumph in the Gutta Pkri-iia Cement Roofing offered by these gentlemen. Possessing in a great degree, tho features ot elasticity, (which is a qualification ore Cement Hoofing actually necessary and long aftr-r.) durability and cheapness, combined witb tbe fact that it is weather and fire proof, its genera! adoption cannot be too earnestly urged. Their Gutta Percba Cement for coating and repairing Metal Roofs of all kinds and for preserving all metals from rust and corrosion from its great durability and cheapness, is fast superceding points of every description beretorors used for such purposes These materials (for which the First Pre miuin8 have beeo awarded hy the American Institute and many of tbe principal State Fairs throughout tbe country.) are recemmed in the highest terms by the New York & Erie R. R. Co , and many of the principal Railroads North and South, and also by tbe ofihers of the leading loeurauce Companies throughout tbe country Tim Wonders or the MiCRoacorR. We understand it is through tbe agency of this marvel viewing machine that Dr. Ayer bas at length succeeded In bnding tbe PaM-HaI, mi asm and determining it character. Of its ef fects we in tbis section bave abundant evidence in the Fevkr and Aot k which it alone produ ces when absorbed through the lungs into the blood. It has long been held to be a vapor or eometniug iu tbe VBpor of water from tie cayeo and decaying vegetation. Under great magnifying power, the Doctor has found this vapor to contain distinct organizations or living bodies, corresponding exactly with those found in the blood of Ague subjects. Tbey are 13.000 times less tban visible to the naked eye, but bave distiuct character and form. He thinks they are reproductive in decaying matter or in the blood, and heuce their long coutinued life or the remote effects of them in the system. He maintains tbat tbey resemble in character the other fermeo tative poisons, or such as the virus or rabies of a dead body, Ac, all of which are known tn reproduce themselves witb great rapidity like yeast in moistened flour, so tbat tbe slightest quantity impregnates tbe whole mass. Yeast through a powerful magnifier is seen to be a forest of vegetation wbicb grows, blossoms, end goes tn seed io a short time. Miasm is not so distinctly vegetable, hot has more of the appearance of animal life, although ii motions cannot be perfectly distinguished. What tbe Doctor claim to have settled is that it is an organic substance, and he bas further found and embodied in hia "Ague Core" wbat will destroy it. Leader, St. Louis, Mo. Oct. 5.
