BLOOMSBURG: Thursdays July 10, 1851, Delaware and Hudson Canal Company. By the last legislature a Committee was appointed to investigate the afTairs of this compady and to report upon the propriety of the state resuming this work, as it seems may be done by law. It will be remember ed that when (be work was iu Uie hands of the state it was unproductive and expensive, for what was every body's business seemed nobody's business. The boats then carried only 25 tons, while in the enlarged canal they carry 125 tons. The case illustrates just the diflerence between a band of rich capitalists who rush headlong and improvi dently into a business, and trust to the gov ernment to help them through by bounties and special favors, and prudent, economical business men who when and where the community has a demand for a particular article. Messrs. l'enniman of Philadelphia, Mor ris of Monroe and Walkerof Alleghany are the Committee of investigation and they are now in session in Wayne county. Hon. Geo. W. Woodward is counsel for the Com pany. Literary Society In Gotham. Mrs. Swisshelm of the nttsburg Visiter in speaking of the sins of the mad fashior.a* bles in New York says the literati of that city have created for themselves a state of society which would not bear investigation by folks clothed in their right mind. The habit of general flirtation which has been imported from Paris, and now prevails amongst the "upper leu," receives addi tional license from the mutual admiration societies—the sentimental appreciation soir ees, and the similarity-of-soul familiarities which are countenanced among the pen craft. It appears it is not uncommon for a celebrated poetess to cultivate a " soul friendship" with some celebrated poet, or other kindred spirit of the quill, until the respective husband and wife of each will feel wronged, neglected, and yet the parties maintain their Bocial position anil no crime be imputed. Business Matters. Tho farmers of this region are just in the midst of their harvest, and hence business is a little dull in town. There is more com plaint by the farmers for the want of "hands" than for any deficiency in tho crop itself. The hail storm of last Thursday evening cut and broke down some wheat along Fishing creek, but upon the whole, there will be more than an average yield in this neighbor hood. The miners are ill bii9y taking out ore, for which there is an increased demand. A number of boats are steadily engaged in ta king it fjrom BloomsOnrg and Espy town to Danville and other places. The canal is in good order. No grain is sold here at this timebut is still in demand for exportation to Philadel phia, notwithstanding the depression in the foreign market. In the city tho flour market is active at from $4 to SI 25. Wheat is worth from 95c. to 980. Rye 72c. Corn 61c. Oats 43c. At these rates our farmers will wait for the ''better time a coming ." ITWe are gratified to learn that lion. J. M. BURRELL, of GrOeusburg has been nominated by the Democracy of Westmore land, Armstrong and Indiana counties as their candidate for President Judgo. Judge B. it one of the ablest lawyers in Pennsyl vania and withal a most kind and courteous gentleman. He was appointed Judgo in this same district by Gov. Shunk but a stubborn Whig Senate refused to confirm the appoint ment and now tho sovereign people are going to place him on the bench. EST Governor Lowe of Maryland has signed the death warrants for tho execution of Taylor, Shelton and Murphy, convicted of the murder of the Cosden family in Kent county. They are to be bung on Friday the Ist of August. 1 A RAILROAD CONVENTION to encourage and aid in the completion of the Railroad from Williamsport to Erie is to be held in Pi|iladelphia on the 16th inst. The people of Clinton county hold a meeting on the 12th., to select delegates to go to Philadel phia. I*" The Albany Dutchman is to be out this week in a new dress, and we have no doubt but that it will be as sleek and nice as a "Bloomer," and as funny as all creation. Get your but'ons insured, the " Dutchman " is coming. CP" Yesterday the Whig conferees of the Dauphin and Northurabendwl Sonatorial dis trict met and nominated John C. Jvunkle, Esq., of Dauphin, for the Senate MORE TESTIMONY. —The Baltimore Argus in sneakin? of the late dissent of Judge Campbell from Judges King and Parsons in the telegraph case says ''Judge Camsbell is oorrect. A telegraph operator hes no more right to disclose the contents of a dispatch entrusted to turn than individuals have the confidential communi cations of their friends." Our Table. THE HYDROPATHIC ENCYCLOPEDIA by R. T. Trail, M. P., seems likely to prove one of the most valuable works of these days upon medical science. The second number is now before us, and finishes that department of the work which treats of anatomy. The book is so illustrated with plates that the dullest mind must be able to comprehend the text; and the text everybody should understand who cares at all for (he preser vation of health and the prevention of dis ease. The book is to be completed in 8 numbers at 25 cents each. Fowler & Wells, New York. The same publishers have issued an in teresting phrenological Almanac for 1852 at <?} cents a piece. Harper's New Monthly Magazine for July has an interesting article of rememscenses connected with the revolutionary history of this coanlry, and good portraits of the most distinguished Americans of that day. The article, "Josaphine at Malmaison," is the most affecting leaf of histoiy that has ever fallen in our Way. We pity the man or woman who can pick it up and treasure it in the naskot of memory without being wiser and belter—for who, alas 1 is above the lesons of our nature's frailties; or who beneath the promptings of nature's noble ness? The 144 pages of the book, (it is a book in itself) contain many other things to in. struct and entertain, and among these let ns note a good engraved reprerenlation of a young lady in the much talked-of Bloomer costume ; and which looks far more like the real live Bloomer it was our good luck to see than does any other Bloomer which we have yet met 011 paper. The magazine is printed at $3 a year, or 25 cents a number. Pennsylvania Farm Journal —We are al ways pleased to notice this work as one of the utmost utility to the agricultural interest of the slate; and only regret that we can not do it a belter service than to speak well of it. The farmers of New York support several journals devoted to their interest, and they find a vast profit in the interchange of their useful knowledge. Considering this advantage, and the necessary difference be tween the mode of the New York Pennsyl vania fanning, arising from a difference of soil, climate and products, the farmers of Pennsylvania ought surely to sustain this journal well. AN INDIAN SPEECH. At a celebration at Dunkirk, oti the occa sion of the opening of the Erie Railroad, after the President and other big "pale fa ces" had made speeches, Dr. Wilson, a Cayuga Chief of considerable notoriety, ad dressed the multitude. We believe it was pretty generally admitted to be the best speech of the day. We make an extract from it as reported for the Jamestown Jour nal : FELLOW CITIZENS :—I am a Cayugan, hnd regular descendant from the pure stock of Native Americans. Gentlemen have boast ed hero to-night about Democracy; but De mocracy was established here long before the pale face come upon these shores. My ancestors were Democrats long beforo the arts ol civilization drove them from their hunting grounds and the quiet "possession of their forest homes. (Cheers.) The orator from Kentucky who addressed you to-night, said that the pale faces came here a mere handful, and had grown to be a groat nation; but he forgot to tell you that when they landed upon these shores, helpless and in want, the red man fed them with the milk of human his wiswam, spread betore them his amplest hospitalities, and entertained them as broth ers. Fellow-citizens, I am "to the manor born." I have no foreign prejudices to overcome. My nation can trace its history back to a period when the territory dotted by your proud cities and villiages, was cov- I ered by the primeval lorest. It has not med dled with the politics of the pale face, and 1 think that gentleman who has talked here to-night about Whigs and Democrats, had better have left their politics at home.— [Cries of "good, that's right."] The pale face has completed a mighty work. He has overcoino the most imposing natural barriers; he has pierced the valleys of the Delaware, Susquehanna, Chemung, and Allegany, and levelled the hills which were roamed by my ancestors centuries ago. Now their descendants marvel at the doings of the mighty pale lace. Our little ones are frighted at the fire, smoke and speed of your iron horse, and run to us for protection. But I trust the spirits of my ancestors look down with pride upon the doings of the mighty pale face. They cannot but be proud to see him accomplish his great destiny; to see him fly from hill to valley, and ride upon the wings of the lightning. [Cheers.] If the N. Y. Tribune is to be believed, he has carried his enterprises even beyond this world, and receives communications from the inhabitants of the other world. 1 tried a short time 6ince to get communications from my friends in the land of the Great Spirit, but they had learned the language of the pale faie since they had arrived there, and could not understand the idiom of the Cayugan. (Uproarous laughter.) But, fellow-citizens, in behalf of my tribe, 1 come to congratulate you upon the com pletion of your great work. Your passage through our territory amazed my people; all nature seemed to shake as you thundered along, and the gigantic oak and lofty pine bowed in token of your triumph. [Cheers.] But the heart of the Cayugan is warm, and he greets and welcomes you to his country. [Prolonged applause.] Dr. W. then presenter! to President Loder a banner from the Cayuga tribe, upon which was inscribed the pipe of peace, their na tiona.' emblem. He accompanied the yre sentauPU C' 1 ' 1 a *® w appropriate remarks, to which Mr. Loder !'ey responded.
