IN an article published in our paper last
week, we offered to send five copies of the
STAR OF THE NOKTII six months to any ad
dress for /fee dollars and one copy gratis to
the getter up of the club. In the time our
compositor made us a little too liberal.—
He offered the paper from July 6th to June
lllh 1860, making eleven mouths. We had
written it to read thus : From July 6lk to
Jan. lllh, 1860 ; and the typo mistaking
JIM. lor Jane, made us offer five months
more than was intended for that amount of
money. To those persons who have pro
posed luking us up at this eleven months' of
fer,we would say that, "we would rather be
excused," as we cannot print papers at
sp low a future. We have not yet got
into the habit of letting our paper out to
subscribers for one dollar, or one dollar and
a quarter, per annum. We have known a
certain would-be he id-quarter publisher in
this county to do that very little thing. It
shows how much he values his paper at.—
Probably that is all it is worth, and he wish
es to be very honest in the matter.
ALL men are aspirants; but the aspirations
Oi all men do not run in '.he same direction.
Some men aim at, and struggle for, high
positions, while others follow a common
course, and appear to be content with their
lot. Men who are continuady striving for
place and power very seldom accomplish
their objects; and when they are fortunate
enough to gain their ends, nine times out of
ten, they only make themselves miserable,
aud appear ridiculous in the eyes of the
public. They are of no service to the com
munity, for what they do is invariably done
wrong,—creating strife and dissatisfaction
among the better class of intelligent people.
Men who are chosen to mako our laws and
to enforce them, should not be of this char
acter, but of good sound'judgment and log
ical reasoning, possessing independence
enough to have a mind of their own. In
the selection of jurors to sit in the courts of
justice, this should be observed, and men
not stumbling blocks chosen.
Saturday afternoon and evening an exhibi
tion was given to an august assemblage of
people by this school—under charge of Miss
M. A. L., of poetical notoriety—in the Grove
near the Iror.dafe Company'sFumace, which
was rather creditable to both teacher and
scholars. Here a handsome stand, with
seats in front, had been constructed in
camp-meeting style. Every thing was prop
erly arranged lor out door exercises of a
scholastic order. On each side of the seats
were stretched to tho breeze a very hand
some flag. The evening exercises consist
ed chiefly of singing and declamation, clos
ing with an address from the School Miss,
which abounded in eloquence and patriot
HOWEB'S CORNET BAND, which had been
employed for the occasion, was in attend
ance, and repeatedly enlivened the hours
with their stirring strains.
Upon tho whole, everything passed off
tolerably smooth, consideringthe largo num
ber of people in attendance; and all retired
well pleased with the Morgantown School
Exercises. .
Engineers are now engaged in locating the
Cattawissa and Towanda Railroad—the char
ter of the road having been renewed by the
last Legislature. That portion of ihe road
upon which they are now engaged is be
tween Towanda and Bloomsburg, on the
Lackawanna road. The proposed Catta
wissa and Towanda road is to commence
at Rupert, or Bloomsburg, and intersect the
-Now York and Erie Railroad at Waverly,
passing through Sullivan near this county.
We understand that the greatest obstacle to
be surmounted on the route is to get a prop
er grade over tho North Mountain.
WE have been informed, not long since,
that a Musk Rat leak occurred in the berm
bank of the canal, a few miles below Ber
wick. and some sixteen feet of the embank
ment was torn ou'. The break, was speedily
repaired by tho foreman of the Low er Divi
sion of the North Branch Canal, Mr. Hudson
Owen. The Columbia Democrat says, it was a
" Must Rat Leak." This must be a new
kind of rat; belonging, probably, to the
"pup-doodle" species. We are unacquaint
ed with the Democrat's Dictionary. Like to
get one.
Tin late terriffic storm that passed over
Yhis county destroyed, at some places, near
ly whole apple orchards, by uprooting the
trees. Had it not been that the storm oc
cured at a dry time all the trees would have
met the same fate. Barns were unroofed,
school-houses turned over, and fences dis
tributed promiscuously about the fields,
giving everything a calamitous appearance.
Such a storm as this has not been witnessed
in this section for a long time before. It
was not accompanied by much raiu, but
with vivid lightning, fierce thundering,
and a powerful wind.
INSTEAD of a daily mail between this place
and Cambra, we are now having a tri-week

necessary to have a daily mail carried be

still running every day. The travel on this
line is tolerably good ; at least so we are
W k are slill without any details of the
ialo battle which was fought at Solferina,
and tlie imagination is at its stretch to find
out how many have fallen, how many pris-,
oners taken, and the other trophies left in
lire hands of the French in the great event
of the 24th of June. The inference from
the official telegram is that the French ar
my suffered so severely that two days after
the battle it was still unable to resume the
offensive. The Austrians have sunk five
small vessels, a large frigate and three
Lloyd's steamers in the port of Manoloco,
to prevent the passage of a French squad
ron. The deneralship of the Austrian com
manders seems to have been of a very in
ferior oider. The first rule which the mili
tary student has to learn is, that he should
never engage with a deep stream in his
rear. Nevertheless, the Austrians crossed
Mincioat four points.and attacked the camps
of the French. Their right wing pressed
forward to l'ozzolengo, Solferina and Cav
riana. The Milan Gazelle states "that the
number ol political prisoners whom the Au
sMians carried away with them amounted to
107, who are now in the fortress of Verona. I
HORACE GHKEI.Y has been writing a series
of fetters to tlio Trdnme frotn I'ike's Peak,
and other points, on his route, which prove
to be quite interesting. Ho says "flour is
worth #44 per barrel, and other things in
proportion. Less than half the four or five
thousand people now in this ravine have
been here a week ; he who has been here
three weeks is regarded as quite an old set
tler. The influx cannot fall short of five
hundred per day, balanced by an effiux of
about one hundred. Many of the latter go
away convinced that Rocky Mountain gold
mining is one grand humbug. Some of
them have prospected two or three weeks,
eating up their provisions, wearing out
their boots—and finding nothing. Others
have worked for the fortunate, lor SI per
day and their board and lodging—certainly
not high wages when the quality of the liv
ing is considered. And I feel certain that,
while some—perhaps many, will realize
their dreams of wealth here, a far greater
number will expend their scanty means,
tax their powers of endurance, and then
leave, soured, heart sick, broken-spirit.—
Twenty thousand people will have rushed
into this ravine before the Ist of September,
while 1 do not see how hall of them are to
find profitable employment here. Unless,
therefore, the area of the diggings shall
meantime be greatly enlarged—of which
there is no assurance—l cannot imagine
how half the number are to subsist here,
even up to that early setting in of the Win
ter which must cause a general paralysis of
mining, and consequently of all other Rocky
Mountain industry. With tho gold just
wrested from the earth still glittering in my
eyes—and one company has taken out to
day, at cost of not mora than #25, a lump
(condensed by the use of quicksilver jwliich
looks like a steel-yard poise and is estima
ted as worth #5lO. I adhere to my long
settled conviction that next to outright and
iudispensible gambling, the hardest (though
sometimes the quickest) way to obtain
gold is to mine lor it.
NEW PREMIUMS. —LiberaI inducements are

TWENTY DOLLARS! For the third highest
number of new subscribers, TEN DOLLARS !
The above propositions to bo limited to

a number of their zealous and true
hearted Democratic friends throughout the
Stale have been competitors for the three
premiums ofl'ered by the publisher during
the month of of June last. The largest pre

at Cochranville, Chester county, l'a.
Tho Cleveland (Ohio) Herald, a Black Re
publican, Know-Nothing journal, says:
"We unhesitatingly aver that seven-tenths
of tho foreigners in our land, are not as in
telligent as the full blooded African of our

Such is the feeling and sentiment of the
Opposition party, generally, North and
South, and tliey act it out whenever and
wherever they have the power. They have
done so in Massachusetts, hv their "two
year amendment" to the Constitution of
that State, and they attempted it in New
Jersey, New A'ork, and other States.
THE Boston Post, the leading Democratic
journal in Mass., compliments very highly
the recent addrass of our Democratic State
Committee, both on account of its sound
political views and doctrines, and the abili
ty with which they are presented. After
giving several extracts, it thus concludes its
remarks :
"The citations we havo made from this
address speak for themselves, and are speci
mens of its logic and precision. It is a calm
appeal to the reason and must command
the confidence of the candid and intelligent.
Victory, with such principles, will he vic
tory worth having ; and the Democracy of
the whole country will gladly welcome a
triumph of their cause in the old Keystone
State as the triumph of the old fashioned
Democracy of Jefferson and Jackson."

France—Foreign News.
The following is an extract from a Lon
don puper, dated Paris, Thursday evening,
June 23d. As'vvar is raging rather fearful
ly in the "old country," such extracts as the
one below may bo of interest to our readers.
It says :
' The bloody'conflict dt Perugia between
the Pope's Swiss guards and the people, is
considered in government circles as a de
plorable event. It no doubt tends greatly
to increase the difficulty of the tusk which
the French Emperor has undertaken of
preserving)the temporal dominion' of the"
Pope while emancipating Italy from the
Austrian yoke. The Papal forces are con
fessedly ir adequate to repress the national
movement which has broken out in many
large towns of the Stales of the Church.—
The policy of selecting a little mountainous
village like Perugia, where the population
is too small to offer effectual resistance, for
shedding blood in the name of Papal au
thority, may well be doubted. The event
is likely to double the intensity of the revo
lutionary movement in Bologna, and to ex
cite insurrection in all the disaffected parts
of the Papal States that have hitherto re
mained tranquil. The lfomans, rightly or
wrongly, consider themselves included in
the Emperor Napoleon's Milan proclama
tion, addressed to the 'ltalian people,' and
claim the benefit of his promise, that the
French army shall not interfere with the
manifestation of their 'legitimate wishes.'
Unless, however, §wiss hirelings, now
masters of Perugia, shall be supplied by
French troops, nothing is more likely than
that they will speedily be driven out by
an overwhelming national force.
"The Pays in answer to the 'various cor
respondents,' which persist in affirming that
King Victor Emmanuel is disposed to ac
cept the dictatorship which has been offer
ed him by certain towns in the Roman
States, asserts that all these rumors are
completely false, and that the King has re
fused any sort of dictatorship, whether
'provisional' or otherwise. The fact that
Prussia is making a serious diplomatic ef
fort to put an end io the war seems to be
every day regarded as more and more cer
tain. But great astonishment is felt at the
positive assertion ol the Independance that
the territorial limits established by the trea
ties of 1815 are to be proposed as the bases
of the announcement. The impossibility
that Prussia can for a moment seriously
suppose that France will listen to any such
proposition, gives some countenance to all I
bnt the incredible assertions of certain Ger-<
man journals that a war with France is
really intended by Germany.
The Democracy of Maine.
Attempts have been made by the Press
and other disorganizing and Opposition jour
nals, to create a public impression that the
action of the recent Democratic Stale Con
vention in Maine, was hostile to the Na
tional Democracy and President Buchan
an's Administration. A similar course
was pursued iu relation to the Vermont
Convention,and for a time.it was not without
effect, but subsequent and more reliable in
formation, soon disabused the public mind
of the error, and it is now known that the
Vermont delegates to the NationaTConven
licn are friends and supporters of the Nation
al administration, and entirely uncommitted
on the subject of the next Presidency. And
the same may be said of Maine. The Belfast
Journal, a prominent and influential Demo
cratic paper of that State, in an article on
"the Slate Convention," dwells at some
length on die proceedings of that body. It
says that Mr. Smith, the nominee for Go
vernor, was known as the earnest and de
cided friend and supporter of President Bu
chanan, and then adds : " There is nothing
in the resolutions inconsistent with Mr. Bu
chanan's letter of acceptance, his Sillitnan
letter, the Cincinnati Platform, or the gen
erally received doctrines of the Democratic
parly, that the people of the territory can
only abolish or prohibit slavery when they
form a Constitution. It is well known that
a contrary opinion would have been reject
ed by the Committee, nsd if it bad been, it
would have been rejected by the Conven
tion, as the re-nomination of Mr. Smith
over his squatter sovereignly competitor
conclusively proves."
The fact is, the resolutions were, as they
clearly indicate on their face, the result ot
compromise, with a view to entire union of
the party in the Slate compaign ; and it is
even more evident that the power of the
Convention was iu the hands of the Nation- J
al Democrats.
TUB CROPS. —A gentleman just returned
from a trip to Northern and Central New
Hampshire, informs the Boston Traveler,
that the prospects for good crops this sea
son are very encouraging. The hay crop,
particularly, will be unusually heavy. The
same encouragement is given in relation to
the wheat, com and potato crop. The
Cincinnati Gazelle says Ohio will havo a
good wheat crop this year, in the Miami
country the harvest is nearly completed,and
the grain is thick and plump, and promises
to produce a much bolter quality of flour
than for several years past. Corn is rather
backward, but is in very good condition.—
The appearances are now in favor of a hea
vy crop. A correspondent of the Albany
Evening Journal writes under date of July
7th, that he has passed through portions of
Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca, Wayne, Ontario
and Monroe counties. The winter wheat
looks good and is free from the ravages ol
the insect. It is already about ripe for the
harvest. New York has mora wheat than
for five years past. Spring wheat has been
touched by weevil—so has barley. The
latter is everywhere light.
Mr. Alfred Jausmi, of Lo Claire, Illinois,
died a few days ago from the sting of a bee.
He was a wealthy and cultivated young Eng
lishman, and was stung in the neck by a
common honey bee. When stung, he said
it was a serious matter for him, as he had
once, after being stung, swooned away and
remained insensible for several hoitrs. Sai
eratus was applied to the wound, but he
was soon violently ill, became insensible,
and in a few minutes had convulsions, and
throe-quarters of an hour from the time he
was etung was dead.

are somewhat discouraging. Demagogism
and sectionalism inspire some men claim
ing to be national and constitutional in their
views, to from projects and views of a dis

arts and suggesjpns of the scheming and
selfish politicians will at once cease to be
regarded, and thd-IsMest heart of the coun

and distinct in all its features, so that the
popular mitul will find no difficulty in prop
erly apprehending it, in spite of the color

will be, as in '52 and '56, such as will in

" Belle Britain" writes from Paris, in
March last, that crinoline is subsiding.—
The haul toil of Puris have never worn
hoops of such vast rotundity as wo have
seen in New York ; and without being too
curious on the subject, I have come to the
conclusion that tho Parisian skirt, as now
worn, is made of some more flexible mate
rial than steel. At events; it yields more
easily and gracefully in a prowd. The bon
nets arc becoming larger, and the greisetles
(who wear caps only) are the only bear
headed people in the streets of Paris.—
Trailing dresses are worn only in carriages
and drawing rooms, and in cut and color
they are more subdued than in Broadway.

FKITINU —Much excitement was created in
New Brighton, yesterday afternoon, by the
arrest of Mr. J. Glass, Postmaster at that
place, on a charge ol counterfeiting. It ap
pears that, for some time back, officer
Hackett ol Ravenna, Ohio, has beeu very
active in picking up counterfeiters in and
about his place, and has already made sev
eral important arrests in that and the adjoin
ing districts. From certain papers, which
fell into his possession, he was led to be
lieve that Glass was connected with a gang
of Ohio counterfeiters, whose-capture he
had been instrumental in affecting : so, de
termined to satisfy himself of the fact, he
came to New Brighton and laid his plans
for acquiring the information he desired.—
Calling on Glass, ho purchased five dollars
worth of postage stamps, and received in
change a small amount of bogus. This
strengthened his suspicion, and on further
inquiry he became satisfied that he was
right, and that the accused was a confeder
ate of the parties referred to. He lost no
time in acquainting Marshal Campbell with
the discovery, and that functionary hurrying
to New Brington, Glass was arrested. His
house was subsequently searched, and sev
eral bogus quarters, halves, gold dollars,
quarter eagles, and half eagles, found se
creted in the different rooms. Two hun
dred dollars in counterfeit bank bills were
also found in his house. It was up made of
.notes on the Chemung and York County
Banks. Glas<|p-was brought to the city last
evening, and taken before U. S. Commis
sioner Baily for examination. He waived
a hearing, and was discharged on 51,500
bail for his appearance at Court.— Pittsburgh
