The Invasion of Canada, wss, probably, only a faint to ml lead and distract Ibe Britlih Government Th despatches by tbe cable, dittlnctty indi est a determined effort to throw off the do- nioion of England. FonUolsnt ' haa for two jeara past been forming wherever Irishmen were to be (bund, not only ia the United State and ia Ireland, but in all the colonies of Great Britain. British troops are poariag mimi the Irish Sea. British men-of-war, are surrounding Ireland with cannon. The London Timet openly announces that tbe Chief Organiser af the Fenian movement, Stephens, either sow is, or in a very short time will be, on Irish soil; and it may be taken for settled that the telegraph will soon bring m the sews of bloody work, onee more doing among those fair hills and those lovely Tales which have seen so much slaughter aid so much suffering in the dark pnst. ' Some of the Loudon papers hint that a more serious trouble with the United States is really at the bottom of this Fenian move ment, and the peremptory demand of Secre tary Seward, for immediate settlement of the claim for depredations by the Alabama may have something to do with it. Business in Philadelphia is dull and un settled. The fashionable stores on Chcsnut street, and elsewhere, have placards in the windows offering to sell certain fashionable dress goods for "$3, recently sold at $3.30." There has been a considerable fall in the price of many fancy goods, and in imported goods generally, but the decline in staple articles, such as muslins, has not been great, but the indications are that a gradual de cline in prices is inevitable. In the provi sion market, especially in meats, there is a considerable decline. I saw good lamb and mutton in one of the best city markets, this morning, sold at 14 cts. for the hind and 10 cts. for the fore quarter. This is not much over half of the prices demanded by the very modest butchers at Sunbury. Trim mod mutton chops sell at 16 to 18. sausages at 13 cts. per lb. Pork is worth 12 to 14 cts. Green hams about 14 cts. Grain is high, but wheat is not as high as in Sunbury. a a 3F"Horace Greely has reason to felicitate himself. lie has lived down even tbe slan ders of political opponents, and forced them to confess both hia honesty and greatness.

Ei7Tbe Pittsburgh Gazette says: "The receipts of cattle were again large this week beiug fully up to the usual average in point of numbers, but the quality was inferior there being but very few good cattle on the safe, and those few were held above tho views of buyers. The market, however, was a very bard one, the light improvement in New York making no percepticle impression here aad shippers were unwilling to do anything at an advance indeed, the majority of them seemed disposed to bold off, unless they could buy at a decline. With the execptioo of one drove, which brought seven cents, the best sales ranged at from 6J to 6J dis posed of an inferior drove of Texas cattle, averaging 940, at 8. Swiss. There has been a fair business done in Hogs this weak, the demand being pretty well last week, price have still fur ther declined. Last week, good to prime heavy average told at from 7 to 1 while this week, the same grades cannot be quoted above 6t to 7. Shrbp.

Bcnbcrt, la the county of Northumber land, Pennsylvania,, in the valley of tbe Sus quehanna, at the function of the North and West branches of that broad river, has a fo It la which leas picturesque ia Its surround ings a it is favored in its natural and arti ficial facilities for business and transit vTn.KKB Brrr, on tbe North Branch hat the advantage of a position in the great Wy oming Coalfield. Willi amsport, on the West Branch I the centre of a great lumber ing manufactory. Daxtillr, has its fur naces and rolling mills. All the transit from these towns, and tbe trade of their extend ed . valleys south to tide-water, and north from tide-water must pat this important center BCsBvRT. Pittsburgh at the confluence of the Alle gheny and Monongahala rivers, is of less importance in lumber and agriculturo than the north and west branches ot tue ousque- hanna. Sunbury ha extensive surrounding . . . 1 . 1 . , .1 ' .3 IIm.h.. oi ncu agricultural uismci aim is abundant. The Shamokin Coal fields are bnt 18 miles distant. The fotsiliforous Iron ores or Montour ranee out lour nines wi the north, and the taut lumbering district of northern Pennsylvania have a ready ana chesi) water communication by the main rivers to their juaeiioa at Sunbury. The anthracite of Wyoming, and the bituminous eoal of the West Branch, must pass Sunbury on their wav south. Busbar? has the advantage of being in the vicinity ot Coal and Iron, and on the im mediate highway of Oil and Lumber, it therefore offers larce inducements as a local ity for tbe manufactories of iron and lumber, or the refining of oil. It is a center on the nigh way irom too source ot supply to the (lepras ot demand. It is but nineteen (1U) miles from Coal ; four (4) miles from Iron, and one (1) mile from limestone. Cheap and abundant agriculture to produce cheap labor are on every hand all on descending gradca by river, canal or rail. Lumber from Aortn ern Pennsylvania can be delivered here at a total cost of but five dollars per 1000 icct in the log ; here to be cut into the numberless varieties demanded by the markets of the extensive coalfields but a few hours distant, where hemlock lumber, so abundant and cheap, and finds a ready sale in this capa cious market for tbe structure of Breakers, Houses, &c, &c. The great advantages of its location are its facilities for transit from the Lake coun try north and west to the cities of New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore on tbe Atlantic sea-board. The immense water potter at ready com mand is equal to the whole river Susque hanna taken from the dam with a fall of seven feet, to a point one mile below the bo rough. The slack water occupied by the dam nearly one mile in length gives all the facilities of a lake where the logs can be gathered in an iromenso boom to harbor them by millions from the northern forrests. The further this timber can be transported by river, than by canal or rail, to point near the great Eastern markets the greater the advantage. Therefore Sunbury for a lumber trade offer superior facilities to any point further north. Its location for furnaces and rolling-mills is excellent if you notice it position with reference to the several varieties of ore in common use; Xhofoseiliferous ores of Mon tour the Magnetic from Cornwall ; the Car bonates from tbe Coal regions and tbe Oolitic from New York ; or the richer ores from Lake Superior.

Its surroundings are even more pieturcsque, the lands as fertile, the access is quite as good from all points except tbe west which we hope will soon be supplied by tue newly projected Kailroad Hue Irom Lewistown. Even now we have a western route by way of the west branch divuraing from it at Lock-Haven and thence by the Bald Eagle Valley Railroad via Bellefonte to intersect the Philadelphia Central It. R. at Tyrone. The distance to New York from Pittsburg by this route is 431 miles compared with 431 miles bv Ilarrislmrir and Heading. Bv tbe Lewistown & Sunbury 11. a., the distance will be 428 miles, and if the transit of railway travel through a place gives it no advantage as some erroneously contend, the introduction ot strangers iscertaiuiv impor tant, the practical eye of Americans are ever ready to sec utilities auorded loraericuiiiire. manufactories, or any other business, and thev are sure to note and state it. But we earnestly contend that Haiiroads aro tbe very lire nerves or our country, and they add to the prosperity of all places and all persons along its line. You have the proof in tbe contrast between tne xsortnern and Southern States. The former has 20,604 and tbe latter 10,424 miles of rail-road. "The Commissioner of Census of 1800, declares, that so great are tbe benefits rail roads have conferred on all departments of agriculture, "that, if the entire cost of the railroads between the AUantie and Western States had been levied on the farmers of the Central H'est, they could have paid it, and been It is not our intention, however, to draw indivtduous comparisons between the seve ral flourishing towns on the Susquehanna. Each one bas its peculiar advantages as the river valleys do not all terminate at tbe same point, but, wherever enterprise chooses to place tbe pot at their bright rainbow ter mini there they will be sun to be tilled with cold. For this reason It should be under stood that the neighboring town ot North- umoeriaoa it inciuoea in this description. Tbey are almost, and soon will be united by the new addition to Sunbury. which will soon Oil np the apace between tbe two and divide tbe honor with them. .

It 1 foend that there hat been over production in many things, especially la manufactures; that is, production beyond the ability and disposi tion of the people to consume at the high prices sskid, and in many cases the protec tionist have tbu overreached themselves. Tbe failure of a market in tbe South has its effect, too, on all dry good, and thu thrift iu that lection is shown to be a need for tbe whole countrv. It is found, also, that bread tuffs and provisions ar plentiful io the country, and dealer must realize that they are to be satisfied with less than the exorbi tant profits ot the period of war. The large stocks held in tbe West on borrowings at high rates of mocey cannot be held mucu I oncer, as the rate of interest are rising in the East also. No one will regret to see the soeculators bitten. According to tbe N. York World, the heavy decline in the price of beef, mutton and uork which has taken place during the oast four week ha no Parallel since tbe year 1837. We quote: Now western men are losing in the neigh borhood ol 1300 on each car-Toad of cattle, and a much aa 800 per car-load was lost on bogs sold on Monday and Tuesday last. Beeves that one month ago sold readily at $130 per head could not be sold to-day for more than $100 ; and bogs that cost 2 cents fier lb. in Chicago were sold at Ot cents per b. here. And lots ot sheep that sold to average $0 per head thirty days sgo are thought to be well sold now if they averago $5. The following comparison of prices on tbe 15th of October and on the 15th of the present month will show more clearly the heavy decline in cattle, sheep and hog ; Oct. 15 Nov. 15, Prime beeves, 17c a17ic 14o al4tc Prime hogs, 11c allc 8c a Bc Prime sheep, CJca 7c 5ca 6o This falling off is attributed solely to tbe large supply of stock io tbe country, and while there may be a slight reaction in tne latter part or December, tbe general opinion is that lor the next six months the average of prices canuot be higher thsn we quote to-dav. Large operators, with plenty of mcaus to hold cattle, have no fniih in pro )hecies of better prices ; and one urtn, at a oss of nearly $20,000 per week, cuntinuo to send forward in even larger numbers than when prices were better. fatTiEPOiiTANT Oil Strikes. Tbe peo pie of Tarr Farm, near Titusville, are rejoic ing over a 800 barrel well, tbe property of Clark & Sumner. It was struck about fortnight since, and had been pumping about twenty-five barrels per day until Sa' turday lust, when it commenced flowing! and in the course of forty-eight hours had produced 600 barrel of oil actually barrel ed Mr. Doubleday is Superintendent. The well is 591 feet deep. - It is located on bluff territory, on a parallel line with the Baker; well, which suspended operations as soon us tho new well commenced flowing. Tbe Ba kery well was producing ninety barrels per aay. Tbe new well is named Keystone No. 2 It is the largest producer in Pennsylvania and is tbe best strike made on Tarr Farm for several year past. The famous Philips well, which was the largest flowing well on record, was on larrf arm, as also the Wood ford. Messrs. Sumner & Pratt have operated very largely in that locality, and with im mense success. Tbe bluff territory of Oil Creek, only until recently tested, is now uni versally aougbt by oil miners, and seldom fails to reward expectations, Tbb Life op a Railroad Corddctor. Joseph S. M. Gibson, a conductor on the Penusylvunia Central Railroad, was arrested last week by Detective Joshua Taggart, of the Mayors Police, charged with embezzle ment, in having retained in his pesscssion certain fares which he had collected on the road. Mr. Gibson had a hearing before At derinan Ogle, before whom one of the rait road officers had made the necessary aftidavit charging him with peculating to a la ret amount through several months. Upon tbe ircliminary hearing the alderman fixed the mil at $10,000, in default of which the de fendant was committed to prison. Mr. Kun aga, of the Uirard House, entered tbe requi red security, and Mr. Gibson was released Aitlioui;li but one arrest was uiailo as above indicated, the Company bas Inien con vinced that for months past it had been the vn tlin or a systematic and gigantic rraud, by means of which the treasury has been robbed to the extent of thousands of dollars, Tbe Pennsylvania Central Railroad and its various branches have been the scene of these robberies, until at last the officers could no longer close their eyes to wliut was so plain to an tne rest oi the community. 10 rinkerton Chicago detective was entrusted the duty of discovering the frauds, their nature, extent, and the guilty parties, It is understood that for months they have been engaged in the labor. Day after day, night after night, tbe conductors on the Pennsylvania Central and its branches, par ticnlerlv the PhiladelDhia and Eire road have been closely watched, and their every movement noted. Their haunts bave been discovered, their habits and expenditures reported, and other means taken to tlx upon the right parties the crime. All the expe dients resorted to it would not be proper to give to the public. Suffice it to say that every train carried one or more of the defec tives, male or female, until at lost everything was reduced, in police parlance, to "very fine points." Every fare paid, and the amount, the station, the distance traveled were all accurately marked and prepared. Upon the reports of Mr.Pinkerton's agent, the Company acted. Tbe majority of the conductor on tbe Pennsylvania Central have been relieved from duty pendiog tbe inves tigation, while every conductor on the Phil aaeluhia and Erie road, now under the con trol of tbe Pennsylvania Railroad Company, hat been placed in the tame position. As a earnest of the Company's intention to deal rigidly with the offender, Mr. Gibson wss arrested, tbe prosecution designing to bring all tbe parties in turn to justice. Mr. Gibson wss engaged on tbe main road, and tbe exteut to which be is supposed to have been guilty may be inferred Irom the amount of bail demanded upon a primary bearing. It is suspected that the conductors who are implicated in these peculation have a secure anchor to windward. Every conductor, before entering upon the discharge of hi duties, is now required to give a bond la $3000, conditioned for the lauurui mtcberge or the trust imposed upon him. This will nrov soma nrotacLinn the company, as la every case the bond wit) be seed oat, ia arder to make good, as far a possible, the ejaculation of the parties.
