When some fanatics were once upon a time arretted for very violent and treasonable expressions against an English King, he was appealed to for a severe disposition of their case. With great wisdom he remark ed "they have Bet their hearts upon being martyrs and 1 have set mine npon disappoint ing them." To compare small things to great in the il- I lustration of the same human nature: last week • poor (allow who was nearly dead with epileptic fits, and had used poisonous — woo aiiuwn as mo 'Dine man,' engaged in the sale of books opposite Bar num's Museum in New York, ar.d in the fashion of the "razor strop" man drew a crowd until the street became blocked up and the police arrested him. Instantly the Know-Nothings began to manufaclnre polit ical capital against the "Irish police," be cause '.be man had sold the lives of Ftllntore and Donaldson, though it did not appear (hat the police knew what kind of books he sold. The magistrate scented the game; and instead of making a martyr of the 'blue man,' he admonished him to raise no more crowds in the street bnt to sell as many books oth erwise as he oooId; and so discharged him. If Senator Sumner had not been made a martyr by the abolitionists he would now have no other reputation than that of a finish ed blackguard. Brooks in like manner has made political capital. To prove how (his worka, we observe thai last week a member who would likely never have been otherwise heard of, made a vary abusive speech in denunciation of Mr. Buchanan, and bid for notoriety and n fight by saying he held him self responsible in the House or out of it, at all times, for what be Lad said. This of course meaDS the same as if he had said— "won't some gentleman fight me into notori ety!" It is this way that poor Kansas ha. been used by abolition demagogues in the manu facture of horrors and exciting outrages.— These fanatics feel better under a flag with sixteen stars than one with thirty-one. They can no longer frighten people with a "tariff" panic, and they only deal in "ruin." They used the iron manufacturers for political tools ea long as they could, and now they are determined to nse poor Kansas. And when "blood and murder" will not |MMe fast enough In Kansas by the help of rifles and such like auxiliaries, an can bo torturedfb help Wc remember when some a member of Congress turned out BWean infamous forger, and yet'no person thought of holding his party or his state re sponsible. There have been assaults and batteries in Congress before the present ses sion, and nobody was silly enough to or ganize a sectional party for that reason, nor to suggest that tho States from which such members came must therefor go out of the Union. Burning of a Steamboat on Lake Erie. On the 17th inst. the steamer Northern In diana was burnt on Lake Erie, and out of 110 or 115 passengers about 30 lives were lost. The fire caught near the engine, and the alarm among the passengers was so great thßt many were disabled from rendering any assistance. Mr. Wetmore the first male was in oommand of the steamer at the time, and behaved bravely. There were about two cords of plank on the steamer, and be com menced throwing these overboard, and also tables and other objects onon which passen gers might find safety. He was the last man to leave the steamer, and aaya he could have staid on half an honr longer without incon venience. He is of opinion that if the pas sengers could have been controlled to obey him, not one life would have been lost. The steamer Mississippi came up and picked up the passengers floating, and such as yet re mained on the Northern Indiana. Among the passengers saved were Rev. William Calheart, wife and child, of Lagrange, Indi ana, who were on their passage from this place to their western home. FATAL AFFRAY AT HOLUDAYSBURG— On Sat urday night a week ago some men at Holli daysburg came to angry and heated words in the course of which a large, hoavy man named Hewitt brandished his fists for fight and placed himself in attitude to attack Mr. Neff a young lawyer, who thereupon drew a knife and making a pass at Hewitt so stabbed him that he soon after Aed. It was not immediately observed that he was wounded, and the parties separated. The respective companies seem to have been Respectable men, and had not been drink ing. Neff was in company with a merchant and a doctor of the place, when the afTair happened, and at once gave himself up to the law. Judge Taylor admitted him to bail In 56,0C0, which he entered. VF Next week we will publish an educa tional address delivered by Dr. P.John at the close of the last terra of the Millville Semi nary. It has merit in its matter, and will be read with interest by all who feel any interest in the snbjeet of education. MT Several fatal oases of cholera have oo curred within the past week in Philadelphia and Delaware county. THE CAMPAIGN. A Dumber of names are to-day announced for ooonty officers, and those who would lika 10 tee the party in a turmoil would doubtless to see many more. A number of per sons who have been named, seeing that in divisions there must be defeats, have from the most honorable motives declined being candidates. The polioy of the opposition will naturally be to divide and conquer, and any cause can find a fit tool for mischief. In the last three campaigns the true Demo crats of this county have met an insidious and desperate foe in their own midst, of which the vote in a few infected districts furnishes the mark and proof. Three years ago the treacherous, the timid and corrupt formed an alliance against the Democratic nominations; and in 1854 it was designed by that clan to give the Know-Nothings full sway. The true Democrats met that issue early and bravely ; and week after week we fearlessly vindicated the cause of honor and manliness. We warned when the timid shrunk cowardly from the contest; and we dealt blow after blow when the corrupt sold themselves to darkness and treachery. For this the base will never forgive ns; but many who honestly erred have heartily thanked us, and will ever respect us. No where else was Know-Nothingism so met, and no whore else so sorely defeated in its day bf p'ide Other counties were distracted while Ibis one stood firm. L*l fa)J l)io sumo enmidiooa misoiiiof want with the lodge of darkness, bigotry and guile. Men calling themselves Democrats bargained with the remnant of Know-Nothingism, and tried over again the deed of darkness; but proved as powerless as before. These county offices are no source of profit to those who hold them ; but it is important to the public that fit men. should fill them. A parly has nothing to gain in its nomina tions, bul by taking disreputable men it has much to loose. The object should not be to satisfy the most importunate applicant, but to give position to a man who will do no discredit to his party, who has been consis tent and honest in all things. Those who went after strange idols are to be guarded against ae unsafe to be trusted; for by their defection they have proved that an idle wind may turn them. If only safe and tiusty men are placed in front, the party will gain not only strength and success, but respect and confidence for future security. If those are trusted who have betrayed, there can neither be confidence and onion among ourselves, nor any respect from others. Important Ariangemeut. The Board of Canal Commissioners have awarded the carrying of passengers on the j State Railroad fromLanoasler to Philadelphia to Messrs. Thomson & Yeager, the two pres idents of the Pennsylvania and of the Harris burg and Lancaster Railroads. Messrs. Bing ham & Dock have hitherto had the contract for carrying the passengers on the State road from Lancaster eastward. ' The transfer now made is in effect to the Pennsylvania and Harriabnrg and Lancaster railroads, and de livers the passengers from the annoyance of divided control and the vexatious of indiffer ent agents and conductors. From Philadel phia to Pittsburg, henceforth, the supervision , of the passengers will be single and unbro ken over the whole I'"e. Tlae Bloomsburg and Lackawanna Rail* road. For a week past the Engineers have been engaged in locating the Bloomsburg and Lack awanna Railroad from its junction with the Cattawissa Railroad pa6t this place. It will run nearer the town than was generally ex pected. The contractors are already on hand to fence the road, and then the work of gra ding will commence at once. So far as the road runs through this county it can be built for a less sum per mile than any other rail road in the Slate. 17* The Lancaster Examiner publishes ap provingly the proceedings of an Abolition meeting held in Sadsbury township, lor the purpose ol forming a Fremont Club. The principal managers of the meeting were those who played a prominent and conspicuous part in the Christiana negro riot of 1850, which resulted in the murder of Mr. Gorsuch, and disgraced our cour.ty and Slate. George Whitson, one of the fiercest Black Republi cans in the Commonwealth acted as Presi dent of the meeting. J. P. Scarlet, wbo~if we mistake not—was tried for treason, serv ed as Vice President; and Ellwood Greisl, who counseled resistance to the laws of the country, in a mixed assemblage of wnites and blacks, at Georgetown, a few days be fore the Christiana murder, was the Secreta ry! The Bradford Times. —A new weekly pa per with the above title has been started in Towanda, Bradford county, Pa., by D. Mc- Kinley Mason, a practical printer, and for merly a compositor in the Philadelphia Ledg er office. It advocates the election of Mr. Buchanan. It has a large amount of editori al comments, well and forcibly written, a good advertising ccstom, and looks as if it could render good assistance to the cause it has espoused and be generally useful to the community in which it is published. LV The new Judge, Hon. Warren J. Woodward, was last week required to spend several days in this place, and made a favor able impression upon our people by his man ly bearing and intelligent spirit. ur Affer several hearings before Judge Woodwaid, the prisoner, James M. Price, committed for homicide, was allowed to give bail in >4,000; but not doing so is still in jail to await his trial at the next Court. The ev idence on the habeas corpus was substantially the same as at the inquest. SsW Ex-President Paez, of Venezuela, had a dispute with a hackman in New York, about overcharging, and the latter beat him, for which act of ruffianism the Mayor revok ed the hackman's lioense. Tbo Ex-Presi dent, it is said, was very highly pleased with Amerioan justice, so promptly administer ed. Truth in a Nut-Shell. Hon. Henry Clay, in 1850, used the follow ing expressive language, which cannot be too often repeated and commented upon : "01 all the bitterest enemies of the unfor tunate negro, there are none to compare with the Abolitionists, their pretended friends; who, like the Centaur of old, mount not the back of the horses, bul the back of the negro, to ride themselves into power." True every word. AH that the leaders of disunion and sectional fanaticism can do for the negro amounts to just this—no more, no less—the anti-Slavery question furnishes them with votes enough to get into office.— By stirring the leea of this great cauldron, the scum of humanity gradually rises to the sur face, and men who, under other circumstan ces, could never have crawled out of their native obscurity, are elevated into prominent positions. ' Abolitionism pays well, 100, in other re spects. It affords a fat living to an army of drones and unprincipled demagogues, who delight as public lectures to set the people by the ears—not to make war upon the South but upon each other; theirown neighbors and bosom friends. We fully agree with Mr Clay, that the Ab olitionists are the Interest enemies the negro has in the world. They have riveted the bonds which they profess to deplore, more firmly than ever, by their madness and reck lessness; they have deprived the negro at the South of very many privileges that he onoe enjoyed, end have retarded lt)8 i emancipation in this country at least half a I century. More than all this; their hypocrit ical professions about the equality of the ra ces have made the negroes an intolerable nuisance everywhere in the Northern and Eastern States. It has inflated that degraded race with extravagant ideas of their own dig nity and importance, and has rendered them so insolent,domineering and overbearing, that some of the Stales have expelled them from their borders. We should not be surprised ifotheie were compelled to resort to the same measure of self-defence. This is what the bitter enemies of the negro have done under, the garb of philanthropy. They have not emancipated a single slave, nor have they a desire to do so. The abolition ol slavety would spoil their trade in sympathy, their wholesale traffic in human credulity— it would prevent votes at elections, stop the salaries of ranters, and compel an army of drones to betake themselves to some honest employment. The Black Line Party. Mr. Comins, of Massachusetts, said in a speech in the House of Representatives on the 10th inst. that "nothing remained forthat gentleman (Mr. Cubb, of Georgia,) but to draw marginal lines of black around the Con stitution and write expunged across its pa ges." Mr. Cobb's rebuke of the revolting sentiment was one of the noblest bursts of patriotic eloquence that ever honored the halls of Congress. He said: "Sir, he who is prepared for the damnable deed may perform il. It is no pan ol my dnty, and finds no re sponse in my heart. I prefer to regard and protect from the assaults of treason and fa nalicm this sacred legacy from our revolu tionary fathers." It appears from the fol lowing, which we clip from the Bangor (Me.) Democrat, that the process of expunging has already been applied by Air. Comins' par ly in Maine to the glorious flag of our coun try. DISUNIOMRM.—HannibaI Hamlin, Lot M. Morrill, and Charles W. Danville, Esq,, of Danville, addressed a Fremont Meeting at Norway, on Monday, standing under an American flag, own which were only sixteen stars I—Dem. Advocate. The disunion flag, with sixteen stars only, still continues to float across the public high way in this village—an emblem of sectional ism, and a disgrace to the party who placed it there.— Norway Adv. The Portland State of Maine has hung out a Fremont and Dayton flag, on which are only sixteen stars. A salute of sixteen guns was fired at Port land the day Hannibal Hamlin was nomina ted. Only sixteen States were represented in the Convention which nominated Fremont and Dayton. These are significant signs of the disunion tendencies and feelings of the blaok republi cans. They scarcely take any pains to dis guise their hostility to the Union. Let those who love their country and desire to perpet uate the Union, ponder these things and then do their duty.—Phila. Argus. Kansas News—lnvasion by Col. Lane. ST Lours, July 25.— The correspondent of the Intelligencer writes from Kansas that Col. Lane, at the head of 600 men, armed with Sharpe's Rifles, Bowie Knives and Re volvers, crossed the Missouri into Kansas on Monday last. Aftet crossing Col. Lane said he would go no further now, but return and force his way up the Missouri river wilb his other regi ment. Acquittal ol nerbert. WASHINGTON, July 25.— The jury in the case of Herbert, oharged with the murder of Keating, aftr retiring for three quarters of an hour, rendered this evening a verdict of acquittal. The announcement was received with manifestations of joy, and Mr. Herbert | was immediately surrounded by his friends, who accompanied him to the Kirkwood House. i The Brooks unit Burllngame Difficulty. WASHINGTON, July 25. —Mr. Bnrlingame, in response to the warrant issued, this morn ing appeared before Justice Hollingshead, with Mr. Campbell, and the two entered a joint bond for >SOOO, that Mr. B. shall not engage in a duel in the District of Columbia, nor leave the District for that purpose.

CuRTOstTtBS OF DUELLINQ.—Among the most remarkable circumstances connected with the duello in this country, is that of the change of sentiment at the North and South relating to the code of honor. According to Sabine's Notes, the first duel fought in North Ameri ca was in New England, between two Puri tans, while the first law against duelling was tnlroduced into Congress, in the year 1802, by a Virginian, while the most forcible and eloquent appeals against the practioe of du elling have been made by South Carolini ans. Gen. Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, of South Carolina, one of the most eminent men that Stale has produced was Chairman o< a Committee, appointed by the Society of Cincinnati, to dralt a memorial against duel ling. It is but four years since, that another eminent South Carolinian, Mr. Rhett, de clined to engage in a duel with Senator Clemens, of Alabama, and proclaimed hie abhorrence of the prnclice in the Senate chamber. Although every State in the Un ion has p asset! laws against duelling, yet the first opposition to the practice appears to have originated at the South, where it has now become an institution, while at the North it has ceased to be resorted to by any class of the people.— N. Y. Times. ur The Danville Intelligencer says the crops of grain and hay in Montour are very good this year. tF H. D. Maxwell has been appointed President Jodgeof Northampton District in place of Judge McCartney deceased. Curious. —AU lha newspapers that profess to be opposed to duelling are sorry that Brooks did not go to Canada and get shot! 17 Three prisoners escaped from the jail in Mauch Chunk on Tuesday night of last week, by digging through the wall of the yard. IT" The Bethlehem Valley Times says that Northern Pennsylvania Railroad bonds have been taken in that borough to the a mount of #65,000. TY A man named G. N. Mcßay has been commuted to the Montour county jail for stealing money of C. Laubach and W. H- Hassenplug. He confessed the theft. IdT The ladies tried in Ohio, for destroy ing a man's whiskey, by invading his shop, carrying the liqoer Into the street and pour ing it out, have been acquitted. This is sus taining mob law in a measure, the less of which we have the better. fcP" A treaty has heen negotiated between Great Britain and Honduras, by which the Bay Islands are retroceded to the last named Power, upon such conditions as are accepta ble to Mr. Dallas, and in accordance with the policy of our government. I* Much excitement prevailed at Pough keepsie, on Tuesday of last week, owing to a report that an elopement had taken place the night previous. The man is about forty years of age, and has a wife and two chil dren ; the girl is about seventeen years of age. 17 A young man, formerly cfeik in a silk store in New York, was arrestetfln Pittsburg, whither he had gone to dispose of some #3,- 000 worth of goods he had purloined.

It will close with riding and driving exercises by ladies. Peace In Kansas Not Wanted by the Poitl cinns. Telegraphic despatches *y (be Free Kan* ■as party are again marching into that Terri tory, armed with Sharp'a rifles. We hope that every one of them will be disarmed be fore he will be allowed to cross the borders of the Territory. That Territory ia now un der martial law, and the United Stales au thorities have turned the lawless, fighting men of both aides out. There has been peace with in the Territory ever since, bat peace is not wanted. The Kansas'troubles are 100 good for electioneering purposes to allow peace and qniet to reign, and hence an attempt to create disorder and outrage again. The ma jority in the House of Congress are endeav oring to assist this state of affairs. They have passed an amendment to the army bill, de claring that the President shall not use any of the military in enforcing the laws of the present territorial government. This is equiv alent to saying that there shall be no law at all, and outrages may take place with impu nity. This amendment will not pass the Senate, but the attempt to control the Presi dent in his constitutional duty shows that there are those who would rather have the murders and'burnings in Kansas which they have so industriously paraded before the pub lic, continue a little while longer till afier the I Presidential election, so that they may polit ically trade upon them. The President un derstands his duty, and seems determined to perform it faithfully and impartially. Hence be will not withdraw the military till Con gress pass a law providing for an election by i the people of Kansas to decide whether they shall come into the Union or not. The pres ence of the military is necessary in Kansas till that election is over, to guard against in cursions from surrounding Slates on the elec tion day, with a view to intimidate voters, or to fill the ballot box with illegal votes. The absence of a force sufficient to prevent such outrages has been the cause of bitter revil ingg of the President. Now that it is present and likely to prevent any interference with the legal residents of the State and the fair expression of their opinion, the same persons who so loudly complained are trying to get it removed.— Phila. Ledger. EXCITEMENT IN WASHINGTON. WASHINGTON, JULY 26.—There is much excitement and indignation among the Irish portion of our population at the acquittal of Mr Herbert. He left Washington early this morning. The two trials have cost the gov ernment about SIBOO. Ex-Mayor Lennox has been arrested .and held to bail not to fight a duel wub Mr. Rad clifle. Several other personal difficulties growing out of the Herbert affair still remain unset tled. SMASH ON TUB UNDERGROUND RAILROAD— One of the Richmond and N. Y. Coasters was overhauled a few days ago, and a negro was found shut up in a box, nearly suffoca ted with the heat, he having been sent on board in that situation by the agents of the Underground Railroad, with a view to escape from Slavery. A second examination was instituted, and another slave was found in the same situation, and io nearly the same condition. These discoveries will doubtless affect disasterously the business of the sub terranean railroad and its living freight. 17 "Put up thy sword !" paid Jesus. "Pul down the church for twenty-five Sharpe'e ri fles !" says Henry Ward Beecher. ''l have not where to lay my head!" said Jesus. "I have #SOOO per annum from my church, and charge fifty cents a head for my lectures," says Henry Ward Beecher. "I could call ten legions of angels to my assistance 1" says Je sus. "It 'a all electricity or animal magnet ism," says Henry Ward Beecher. "Do as you would be done by," said Jesus. "I move an amendment," says Henry Ward Beecher. "I second the amendment," says Rev. Mr. Dutton. (A voice from the chairman at Yale College:) "Let the amendment be rednced to writing! 'do us you EXPKCT to be done by.'" Secret Political Societies do not Work Well.— There is trouble in the O. U. A.'s in New York. Some of the members wish to vote for Fremont, but the Order insists that they mustßO for Fillmore and Donelson or be ex pelled. The New York Times says that many in good and regular standing suppose that unless there is a Catholic in the case, they are at liberty to vote as their conscience dic tates. At a regular meeting held on Wednes day night, at their hall, corner of Grand and Ludlow, the matter was discussed, and the Chair decided, after the reading of the "Pri va'e Work" of the Older, that no member could vote at the coming election for any oth er candidate for the Presidency than Millard Fillmore. Utr The Delaware peach crop, it is eaid, is a total failure. The peaches are few and inferior in quality. With a large wheat crop well secured throughout the country, the people can endure the loss of their peaches. 17 Gen. Wm. H. Kase, of Rush township, Northumberland county, has taken a lease of (he Roaringcreek Furnace, situated near the mouth of Big Roaringcreek, in Mayberry township, Montour county. T7 The crops of New Jersey, as far as gathered, are unusually large. Those stand ing are suffering from drought. The wheat, rye and hay crops are considerably larger than last year, and the recent fine weather has been of great benefit in gathering them. 17 On Tuesday afternoon last, a man na med Adam McKnight, brakesman on the Beaver Meadow Railroad, was killed, be tween Weatherley and Beaver Meadow, by falling from one of the care. About one half the loaded train passed over him, outting and mangling his body in a shocking manner. 17 The Managers of the Lehigh Valley Railroad have offered 8600,000 of bonds for sale, bearing interest at six per cent., for the purpose oi procuring Rolling Slock for said road.

He is a supporter of Fremont and 'American ism,' and has been chosen a delegate to the State Convention of the Fremontars from the first Ward of Boston, LATER FROM BAN FRANCIBCO AND NICARAGUA* THEORENADA AT NEW ORLEANS. NEW ORLEANS, July 26.—The steamer Gre nada arrived last night from San Juan, with California dataa to the Eth ins.ant. She left Greytown on the 21st iust. The Isthmus was quiet. The health of Aspinwall was bad. There has been no abatement of the ex citement at San Francisco. The Vigilance Committee atill holds its sessions. All the arms collected by the law and order men have been seized by the Committee, and Mr. Dutkee, a member of the Committee, has been arrested by the Slate authorities on the charge of piracy in seizing the arms be longing to the State, which were on board a schooner. Judge Ferry of the Supreme Court, has been arrested for stabbing a policeman at tached to the Committee, while employed in making an arrest. The Committee appears to be firmly es tablished in power. The Governor remains at Sacramento. The accounts from the mines are good, and prospects of abundant crops are cheering. The conduct of Mr. Herbert at Washing ton has excited much indignation. FBOM OBEGON. Reports from Oregon state that skirmishes with the Indians continue. The report of the death of Col. Wright is contradicted. The force under Col. Buchanan has had a fight with the Indians at the Big Meadows. Forty Indians and ten whiles were killed. The election returns have not been folly received, but the Democratic ticket is proba bly elected. The steamer Illinois for New York, has or. board 81,640,000 in gold. FROM NICARAGUA. President Walker was inaugurated on the 12th inst. Ex-Piesident Rivas still remains in posses sion of Leon. It is reported that many of the natives con sider the inauguration ol Walker as an act of usurpation, and have declared against him. Among the deserters are Col. Mendez and Gen. Chillon. There is much sickness among Walker's troops, and frequent desertions. Major Waters' command, which has been sent to Leon on acoounl of a rumor that the Guatamaleans were near their city, was fired at by the Rivas party, and one man wound ed ; several of the Rivas party were killed. Maj. Waters wailed outside for some time, and the enemy not appearing, retired. There is no sign of an invasion now, but it is certain that the league of the Northern Stales still exists, and an invasion is looked for at the close of the rainy season. Walker needs both men and money for the coming struggle. The whole vote for President was 21,000 Walker received 14,000, the balance were divided between Rivas, Ferrer, Jerez and Salizar. A Truth Jrom a Strange Quarter. —The New York Herald, the papar that first lead off for John C. Fremont, a few days since re marked : "But long before Col. Fremont enters the White House—if indeed he is ever destined to occupy that mansion—the question of Kansas will be dead and gone, settled, end ?d, laid on the shelf, as much so as the Com promise of 1850, or the Nebraska Law." Then eviry plank of the Philadelphia con vention will be knocked to splinters, and the Black Republicans will present the strange phase of a party fighting without an object. ty The President has pardoned Wagner, the ouly person convicted of being engaged in the enlisting in the United States for a foreign power in the Crimean Vrar. The reasons are that the international question which grew out of this scandalous violation of our laws has been happily and amicably disposed of; the official functions of the principal offender have ceased, and it is not considered necessary to pursue further the municipal offence of subordinate persons con cerned. BP* The Temperance women of Rockport, Cape Cod, have 'gone and done it,' in West ern style. A short lime since a company of about 75 of them, headed by an American flag, carried by a stouter sailor, paraded through the streets, and proceeding from place to place, destroyed all the liquor they could lay their bands on. Demijohns and decanters were smashed, and barrels of rum, gin and brandy were rolled into the streets, and their heads knocked in. A Regular "Sell."—A Lady in Cincinnati, Ohio, was recently detected in pocketing a package of gloves, while making some pur chases, accused of theft, and with tears haid ed out a >2O bill to pay for the stolen pack age. The merchant took out >5 10, and gave her the change. Subsequently he dis covered that the >2O bill wis a counterfeit. Ey The persons who it is alleged are the murderers of William Stephens, of Luzerne county, had a hearing before Judge Conyng ham. Henry Coon 2iF and W. A. Wheeler, who were most implicated hy the evidence were remanded for trial without bail, and Henry Coon Ist, aga'mßt whom the evidence was not so strong, was held to bail in >SOOO, but being usable to obtain proper sureties, is still in jail. American Machines in England.—The Illus trated News, of London, announces that it has contracted for one of Hoe St Co.'s great printing machines. The London Times has also ordered one larger than any yet made; it is to have "ten printing cylinders. Two other printing establishments in London have also given orders for these maohines.

The examination showed that the immense sales of Holloway'a. remedies in (his country had long since ex eited the cupidity of a elasa of miscreants known as "medical counterfeiters;" The establishments of Professor Holloway, in of. ery city of the Union, has been closely watch ed, the extent of their business ascertained, and finally a system of counterfeiting planned out which, in extent and magnitude, hae probably never been equalled ic this or in any other country. We hope the fortunate arre'st of the chief conspirator, Hollig, wild tend to explode the whole scheme; all the material of the rascally combination is now in the hands of the police, la is somewhat difficult to counterfeit the remedy of Prof. Holloway with impunity. His agents "cover the land," constituting an all-pervading "vig ilance committee" whore Argus eyes are ever open to the interests ol the sick, which are in fact 'one and inseparable.' Hollisand bis gang forgot this independent medical po lice, ever on the alert, all in direct communi cation with the office in New York. Tbey left out gf their calculation the boundless pecuniary resources of Professor Holloway, and under estimated his zeal and liberality when engaged in hunting down the double knavery that tampered with the publio health while it aonght to rob blm of his reputation. The timely discovery of this scheme of wholesale rascality, will, we trust, be a warn ing to medical counterfeiters. The counter feit plates, labels, &0., are all in the hands of the authorities of Philadelphia, and- the conspiracy is utterly crushed. Its effect has been to exhibit in a more strikiug light the unparalleled popularity ol Holloway'a Pills, for only against the leading medicine of the age would such a scheme have been or ganized. It would be well for the trade to be on their guard against simiiar frauds for the future.— One scheme of imposture is put down, but the popularity of the medicine may give rise to others.— N. Y.
