It is full of sound views and treats of tevctal new topics in the present political campaign. I3PA telegraphic dispatch from Easton, Northampton county, last evening, stales that in the Democrat Convention, delegates in favor of Mr. BUCHANAN were elected, and resolutions in h:s favor for the Presidency were adopted.

A POLITICAL ANEI DOTE. —'The following j anecdote of the late Gov. James Barbour, of j Vn., was told us by a gentleman who re- , sides in the Piedmont legion. Gov. Barbour was a candidate to represent his county in the State Legislature, and wns opposed by Thomas Davis. The Governor, in Ids speech on the hustings, said : "Felldw cilizens, I had the honor to represent my county for several years in the assembly of Virgi lia; I was for some years Governor of this ancient and venerable commonwealth, I was for a considerable time a representative of this District in the Congress of the UuitedSlates; I had, fellow citizens, at a subsequent pe riod, the honor to hold a seat in the most august legislalivo body in the world—the Senate of the United Stales, at nuother pe riod, I had the place of the Secretary of War Department in the administration of John Quincy Adams, and was afterwards Minister Plenipotentiary and Ambassador Extraordinary near tho Court of St. James; and fellow citizens, you may picture to your selves the hum ilialion that 1 feel at finding myself hero io-duy, engaged in a damned little pitiful county-contest with Tom Davis!" [South Side Democrat. By Telegraph. PIitLAUEIPHU, Aug. 19th, 1851. Tho Bulletin of this evening contains a sad and painful account which occurred on Sunday afternoon in New London, Chester county, Pa. During a thunder s'orm which passed over the place, the Rev.

One young msn it was thought had been killed also, but after considerable exertions on the part of those present be was restored to consci ousness. No damage was done to tho buil ding, except the breaking of some glass of the windows. After closing his discourse, l Mr. Biseey was leaning on the Bible when 1 tho fluid descended.

Sacred Scenes and Characters—By the Rev- J. T. Headley. This work may be very properly considered a companion to the' •' Sacred Mountains,' by thfe same author. Its object is to illustrate and '-render mote life-like" the sacred writings. It is not the author's design to supersede the Bible. But his wish is excite a solicitude to obtain, and to become intimately acquainted and per fectly familiar with ils-hisuifw, .1n.t.i... ■■,! j laws; to know its truth to imbibe its spirit, feel its power, and partakh of its salvation; in a word, to prize in some measure as it deserves, this treasure which is indeed be yond price.

We have not for a long time sat down to a book with more pleasing anticipations, or found those anticipations more fully re alized, than in the perusal of the work bo fore os, and we know it will be hailed with gratification by tire many admirers oi the talented author. His "Napoleon and his Marshals" was, perhaps, as popular and found at least as many enthusiastic readers 1 as any book that can be mentioned. We think the Rambles and Sketches are des tined to be as popular at least as any of his previously published works. There is not a dull chapter in the work, filled as it is with "an infinite variety." The author has am ple room and verge enough for the employ ment of his fine talents to great advantage, and most successfully has he accomplished the task. The biographical sketch of the author is interesting anil "well considered," and adds much to the value of the book, which is got up in a very neat and attractive style by the publisher.— Sec Portland Trans script, Dec. 15th. - Mr, Headley is ono of themost promising wri ters uf this country, and wc have hero one of his books—or.e on which he ran safely rest his fame. It possesses tho unfatiguing charms of perfect simplhity and tinth. 'J'hero is graceful frankness pervading the composition, which en-, gages the interest of the reader in tho author as well as in (he subject. His rambles about Rome, Puris and London exhibit a thousand Hafts of an ingenuous natuiC, upon which a man of taste will delight to linger. We predict for this a sale equal to that ol any of the author's works (New York News. The collection is ono of which no nutlior need he ashamed. It consists, indued, of some of Mr. Headley's most brilliant and highly fin iahcj compositions, of those specimens of his abilities try which be may be jnageo with the greatest safety to his fame as a word-painter and thinker, [New York Tribune, N.

ABOUT two yeftrs ago a new discovery was made ia Europe, Consisting of a subslilAiA for the ordinary store coffeo, called Essence of Coffee, which has gone into gen eral use with astonishing rapidity, not only among the poorer classes, who at once dis pensed w'rth the use o( the celebrated Chick hit to now tn general use in the weallhiesl families and the first hotels, and is highly recommended by tho medical fac ulty. It is extracted from piftc, wholesome veg etables. and excels all similar preparations that have ever been offered to the public, either in this country or in Europe. Its su perior quality has already been attested to in the cities by some of the most eminent phys icians, and a number of the most distinguish ed of the clergy and other highly respectable citizens. Coffee made from this essence ac cording to the prescription obtains a more delicious and pleasant favor than '.lie com mon sloro coffee, and is certainly more wholesome, especially for persrtns i'A deli cato health, which will be admitted by eve ry physician who will take the pains lo test the natute and properties of this essence. One paper costing only 124 eis., i's equal lo four pounds of store coffee, will bo bright and clear without the an iliealiop of any Other ingredient lo clarity or settle it. The public are therefore invited to give this es sence at least a trial before they condemn it. A respectable merchant of Luzerne coun ty in writing of it says: "My customers have been using of the above Essence for somo mouths past with general satisfaction ; and Ido not hesitate to recommend it to the public.
