' Bright "Prospects Ahead. The TT, Y, Evening Post, taking the Her ald" t standing text of "18371857," dis courses rery edifyingly to the "Dismal Jim mya of financial circles." It will be seen that the writer gives very substantial rea sons for putting a cheerful face upon the future: ' ' ' ' r In 1837, we were importing from Eu rope large quantities of grain to supply our necessities, in addition to our usual import ations of merchandise. We had experienc ed a loss of. over twenty millions of dollars by the most disastrous fires this country ever experienced.. The winter of 1836 was one of the very coldest ever known in this climate, and was followed by a backward spring, a short summer, and a general fail ure of the crops. Added to this, the coun try was possessed with an' insane passion for speculation in wild and unproductive lands. Nothing to pay with, without crops lO live upon, wim weaain su uiiesieu in land3 of no current value, with destructive fires and inclement skies, began the revul sion which over-trading and mad specula tion rapidly ripened into general bankruptcy. But how different our present condi tion! There has been, without question, much over-trading, much bad management and extravagance, and yet the recent report of the ' Secretary of the Treasury shows that we have exported, ' inclusive of specie, during the fiscal year ending the 1st of Ju; ly last, some millions more than we have imported. The crops of the country are the largest ever known; almost every sec tion of the country reports bounteous har vests, and there is every prospect of a good foreign demand at fair prices for' all the grain and flour we can supply. Through the troubles in India, and the general in creasing foreign demand, our pork and beef, which have, become important articles of export, will command probably double their average value, and we shall have a greatly increased supply. The prospects for a ful ly fair crop of cotton are promising, and prices are nearly or quite double those of averatre years. 1 hroujrbout the length and breadth of the land there is an unusual pros pect of late fall pasture, and roots for the sustenance of cattle, which is a matter of more importance than is generally consid ered. California is sending us regularly more than forty millions of gold per an nam, a considerable portion of which re mains in circulation in the interior of our country. Emigration to our shores of a more thrifty class of people, is steadily on ward, and through the money they bring, together with their industrious habits, our Western States are reaping a rich harvest. These are facts plain to every observer, and present a state of things as different from what prevailed here in 1837 as it is easy to conceive occurring in any country within so short a period as twenty years. We are all a great deal wiser for what has occurred. Several enormous bubbles have been explo ded, credit will hereafter rest on a sounder, and therefore more profitable basis, and un less something happens not within the range of Drobabilities. our next New Year's Dav will be the happiest and most prosperous that has ever dawned upon this country. Newspapers and the Scriptures It is reported that the New York Bible Society is meditating the plan of publish ing the Bible in newspaper form for more creneral circulation. This nlan. though nov el in our day, wa3 partially adopted in times past by the printers of some of the .hnglish papers. When newspapers were first estab lished they were quite destitute of adver tisements, and nothing was more common than for papers to be issued with a blank page. The first newspaper printed in Amer ica had only three pages of reading matter, a3 there wa3 not domestic or foreign news enough to fill out all the columns. In En gland, after awhile, a new method was adopt ed to fill up the space not required for the current news, by bublishing selections from ilio RpT-irtnre- and Tnnnv "in nld nowsnarwr is now extant with a page copied from the Bible. Chapters from the New Testament were placed at the head o the column, and the space below filled out with psalms of the required length. In the period which this, to us, novel proceeding was resorted to in order to fill out the newspapers, the Bi ble was not so common or so cheap as at present, and doubtless much good resulted from the practice. What would some sub scribers to our popular journals say if their favorite sheet was to appear with seven or eight columns selected from the Scriptures" Doubtless, in some quarters, even in our day, extracts from the Bible would be "news indeed." Boston Transcript. . Charles Sumner returned to Paris a few days since, and left for Switzerland yester day. He is rapidly improving in health and expects to return home before winter sets in. He never looked more manly or vigorous than at present, though he is not entirely free from the spinal dimculty which has troubled him since his misfortune. I was looking over the book of American ad dresses, day before yesterday, at John Mun roe fc Co's. and noticed a blank of a line or two in the middle of the page. It was caus ed by the anxiety of a gentleman from Lou isiana to avoid the contamination which might have resulted from his recording his name immediately under that of the obnox ious Senator from Massachusetts! Corres pondence Phila. Sat. Evening Gazette. A Spaktajt. -Among the Europeans who were endeavoring to escape from Delhi, when it was ravaged by the cruel East Indians, was an English omcer and his wile, as he bore her along amid the dead and dying, he was attacked by a party of mutineers. His good sword was drawn, and seven rumans fell. Slowly retreating, while keeping them at bay, the fiends made a rush at his wife, but a snot from her husband s arm savea her honor, though it cost her life. Another shot, by his own hand, too, and the hus band rested beside the body of. his wife. Specie Coming From Europe. A letter received at Albany recently from a reliable Mercantile House in New York," states that 82,000,000 in gold is known to be on its way from Liverpool to New" York. The occurrence of this rare event at once attests the severity of the pressure, and promises to aid in its relief. .

' We copy below the comments of the To ronto Globe, one of the ablest papers of the continent, upon Mr. Buchanan's letter - and its monstrous doctrines. If these doctrines are to be allowed by the people to prevail, our . Canadian neighbors may well triumph over us, for among them slavery i3 neither sectional nor national, but has no place what ever; while here the chief magistrate of the people, and the head and exponent of a great party, declares the accursed, evil bringing institution to be national. The Globe says: v . We publish to-day two remarkable doc uments one a memorial of certain Amer ican citizens, distinguished for their learn ing and piety, to the President of the Uni ted States, in behalf of freedom, . not for the black, but for the white ,men of Kanzas. The other, the reply of that high function ary, denying the prayer of the memorialists, and affirming the ew doctrine the start ling paradox that republican freedom and human bondage are synonymous in terms and identical in fact; that like Siamese twins, they always go together ! Slavery accord ing to the President is National; freedom local and exceptional. Every foot of Amer ican territory, Kanzas, Nebraska, Minne sota, Washington, Utah, Oregon belongs to slavery, but conquered for freedom ! Wherever the stars and stripes wave, there unless expresily forbidden by local au thority the bondsman bares his back to the lash, and the bondswoman crouches before her licentious master! This is President Buchanan's reading of the Constitution of the United States. Thank God, there is yet a small part of the continent to which this liberty does not exiena. n ine .Orn ish Parliament will but do it3 duty when the great question of North Westera Eman cipation comes before it, we shall be able to say that our halt ot the continent is un touched by the curse of slavery. This lu cid exposition of the blessings which the United States Constitution confers, should induce every friend of humanity to resist it3 extension. Let it be forever confined to its present limits. Especially let it not ex tend its hateful power over a single foot of that western territory which, if not wholly free, is subject to no legal task master, and which irod and nature proclaim to oe me fit home for millions of free men. A Heavt Loss fob a Newspaper Editor The New York yews, in noticing the failure of Persse & Brooks, paper manufac turers, says: "This firm owed James Gordon Bennett, of the New York Herald, 870,000, they being his bankers, and have been for some time past. Bennett bought recently a coun try -seat for 100,000 but instead of paying for it in money, as he might, placed a sec ond mortgage on it, preferring to allow Persse & Brooks to use his funds. This is hard on our neighbor. There is said to be a "National Demo crat" living down on the Neosho who be lieves that James Buchanan is a religious man or he could never have been "Minister to England." Cato, the censor, said to a very debauch ed old fellow : "Friend, old age has deform ities enough of its own; do not add to it the deformity of vice." Some people turn up their noses at the things of this world, as if they were in the habit of keeping company with a better one What is the price of this shawl V asked a lady of a shopman.

ON the opening of navigation in the spring, I shall send to Messrs. Allen &. Gilmore, Law rence, K. T., a large assortment of Breakers of all sizes, especially of my extra Two-Horse Mould Boarjl Breakers, which has received the highest commendations from all who have used them; al so a great variety of Stirring, or old Ground Plows, among which I would mention the Improved Clip per, the No. 4 or Eng. east steel Plow, and the Michigan Double or Subsoil Plow, which should receive the especial attention of those who wish to raise a crop the first year. I have made some ira- rovemente on this plow from last year, and I be ieve it is now perfect to be used on Western soil. Also, Corn Plows, Cultivators, double and single Shovel Plows, Rolling Cutters and Clasps, Gauge Wheels, Truck Wheels, and other Plow fixtures.
