Tlie .W.iiliariiptoii (Mass ) Democrat ol June 111), contains an account of n curious, but peri I ms accident which occurred a few dny since in that vicinity. On FriiJwy m t r 1 1 i i tr las', at the eilk factory of llm Norilisrnpion Associa tion, a buiMing four stone i in height, Georg-e Washington Sullivan, a young man connected with that association, went out on the roof fr the purpose of picking tip a mineral which ho had accidentally dropped there while stand-i-iijr in the belfry. To secure himself from fall i'ttf, he tnuk o(T his shoes. Notwithstanding this precaution, after descending the roof a few rtep, finding himself Flipping, ho took ofT one of his stock ings, but whilst attempting Intake nirthe other, his motion became so much ac celerated that further efforts to save himsell from the fall were useless. "IT? then with remarkable presense of mind, rolled himself over upon tlie roof whilst he whs sliding, in order to prevent falling iion the f'ntfonn, nn I when ho reached the eaves, ha ving fir.-.t drawn in and held his breath, clench ed his teeth and ha ride, and contracted his muscles, he leaped to the ground, a distance of forty or forty-five, feet 1 The concussion was so great ns temporarily to deprive him ol the nower of standing. He was carried into the houup anil placed in bed, and was soon after enmined hy a surgeon, who decided that no 'iu ed were brukeu and no joints dislocated, iiiliotujli there was reason to apprehend seri i.ns injury to the muscles about the cpine, where t.ier.i appeared to bo great eoreneps. The ..nog man's friends then wrapped him in sheets wet in cold water, after the manner prescribed by tho "water cure" system, w hich soon produ ced perspiration. A cold buth was afterwards ulminiiitered. In the afternoon of the same li-iv, he walked out without assistance, and the iiC.xl day was running about with his usual hi- I intv complaining of no unpleasant effects from his fill excepting a slight Inmcnes in one of In.-leut ! A remarkable fact connected with t 'its occurrence is, that symptoms of serious ilixeaje, with which he was previously suffer ing, have since in a great measure disappeared.

For some days past, an rxciting and important debate en the question of bin very, has been going forward before the Conference of Bishops sitting at New York. On Saturday week last the vote was ta ken on the main question, to wit, to depose Bish op Andrew in consequence of his being connec ted with slavery, and carried. To this vote, 'he Bishops from the 6laveholding States have drawn up a protect, which was read to the Con fcience on Thursday morning, from a rough draft, by Dr. Bascon of Ky. This is, by far, the most important document that has ever been of fered to the Conference since the organization ofthe Church. It was listened to with breath lews attention, not only by the members and o t hera on the floor, but, also, by a largu audience in the gallery. The "l'rotest" enters fully in to the illegality of the proceeding of the Confer ence in Bishop Andrew's case, and charges home upon the Northern members (or the ma j jrity of the vote of Saturday) the abandonment ct'ihe compromise which was an integral fca lure of ilio establishment of the Church. It is clear and explicit in its language, elevated in iu tone, and firm in its positions. It throws its signers upon the inviolability of the law and leaves it to the country and posterity to say who hiiVu been the breakers of the law. The "Pro test" is a papr t of extraordinary length, having occupied Dr. Bascon (who is a fa ft and fluent npe;;ker) precisely one hour in the reading. He reUins it, at present, for the purpose of trans' scripuon and signature, and in the mean time a Committee, cor.siM.ing of Messrs. Olm, Dur bin and Hamlin, has been appointed to draw up a counter statement, to be btyled "a statement of facta in the case of Bishop Andrew." There is evtry probability, from the present issuo on this question, that tho Church will feplit in twain. Tho Southern members, retaining their faith end discipline, will organize as a distinct and se lirrte body, leaving the members of non-slave-holding Slateri under their present Church go vernroent. Tho vexed question will be that ot a division of property I'hila.

Folk on J Dullm. ' The nomination of these distiiiuiihi'd men has greatly dissutisned the Whigs, who arc now engaged in singing loud hosannas in favor of Var tin Van Puron, although, until the very day of the nomination, they wore engufcj in nbnsing him as one of the greatest demagogues in the cenntry. "Van is a used up man," was an the end of every Clay Songster. The Convention, we believe, did not expect to please the whig when they mad, the nominations. It would, in deed, have been a hopeless tusk, if they hud. The Whig have been collecting animation and bottling up small thunder for the last year, for thernirpose of overwhelming poor Van, in ruse he shuuld, as they expected, receive the nomina tion. Hut they have been sadly disappointed. All their military stock, songs, sjieeehvs, and pamphlet have nmv become tiseln. It is ralher a hard case, and we pitv them as sincerely as they now pity Van Turen They now take aim ther track, and as they ean find nothing against Mr. Tolk, they hop.i to extiiin;ite the faults of Mr. Clay by proving that others have been as bad as he. For ihis reason thpy asserted that Mr Folk had ul-:o fought a duel. This charge, how' ever, now falls harmless, as the editor of the N Y. Enquirer, a strong whig, contradicts the re port himself, as he says, from the best authority Then aain, Mr. Folk is accused of being in fa vor of free trade, or the 20 per ct. tariff. Ad mitting it to be true, it only shows his support of one of Mr. Clay's own measures, and one that he recently said he still was iu favor of. tiut Mr Folk, it is'sai t, is in favor of the present tariff This is ull that we want. Let the present tarilT remain umlistinbcd and we ask nothing more Mr. Dallas, it is well known, is a strong tariir man. He stands in high favor with the party.

Who is it that has not heard of the "Washing day," that day of all duys, which, if it does not "try men's souls," at least sorely tries the hands as well as the amiability and equani mity of womans' temper. Any one who should invent something to dispense with washing, or at all events greatly shorten and lessen the labors of a washing day. might justly be called a public benefactor. We have been led to these remarks by having witnessed the operation of Shugert's Philosophical Washing Machine, which has been tried and gives the most perfect satisfaction, as can be testified by a number of the most respect able families in this place. Its great advantages are as follows : The labor of washing can be pel formed with perfect ease, in less than one thild of the urniil time. It does not requite more than one fouith the usual quantity of soap. I lie wear and tear is less than by ant other met mil of waging, as was pioved by the fact that not a particle of lint could be found on a pieceof black cloth, washed in the water in which had been washed a large quantity of linen and cotton. The Machine is perfectly plain and simple in its construction, and not liable to get out of repair, and washes solely by the friction and force of the water. The rinsing, or wrenching, as it is call ed, is also done in the machine, which dispenses with the use of tubs. The price is but six dol lars.

The number in the proceveiou, march ing to the Court House, considerably astonished some of our Whig friends, who could not ima gine where the Democrats came from. We re gret to state that the meeting was several times disturbed by a few persons, who were shunting and making a noise at the outside of the door.

We want no stronger evidence of the despera tion of the opponents of ITe.skv A Mi iii.kxp.kru, than the fact that they are attempting to make the German population believe that he is opposed to tlu rn. and that he is a slanderer of the Ger mans that he wrote a letter, while in Europe, abusing them. Yes, Henry A. Muhlenberg a slanderer of the Germans ' ! Do the Whig pa pers suppose that our Germans are bo stupid, that they would, for one moment, believe such a story. They micht as welli haige him with slandering his own fathei and mother. If there is a man living, who does and who can justly pride himself on his ancestry, it is Henry A. Muhlenberg. All his associations alibis friends all his interests have been German. The best answer to prove the utter absurdity of this charge, is the following sentence in reply to an other member, which we have extrarte.l from his speech on the Tariff, delivered in the House of Representatives, January 21, 18.1.1. "SIR." said Mr Muhlenberg, ' I AM A DE SCENDANT OF GERMANS. AND 1 PRIDE MYSELF IN HAVING DESCENDED FROM THAT HIGH-MINDED, GENEROUS, OPEN HEARTED, HONEST, INTELLIGENT, BRAVE, UNWAVERING, AND INFLEXI BLE PEOPLE." Is it lik-ly that a man, who would thus express himself and boast of his German blood before Congress and the world, would ridicule and slander his ancestors ' '. ! We heard an intelligent whig, (himself from Germany.) some months since, make use of the ubove charge against Mr. Muhleabeig We a:-k-c-d him if w hat Mr. Muhli-iibei g staled in his let ter, wa not all strictly tiue. lie acknowledged to.it it was. V.'e tlii-u asked if he believed that Mr Muhlenberg intended to slander the Ger mans, or would be guilty ol such an act. He un swered promptly that he did not, but that the story would answer extremely well to election eer with among the Germans Thus, our Ger man friends can see that the Whigs, who claim for themselves all the intelligence, have an idea that they ran make them believe any ridiculous story they may choose to invent. Put they will find, by the ballot boxes at the next election, that the Germans are the last people that can be gul led bv federal fish-stories. "CT" Col. StonP, the editor of the N. Y.

The Bishop, in his letter, associates the name of Col. Stone, a man of high standing and character, with that of Bennett, of the N. V. Herald, in such a way as to place them on the same level. Col. Stone, in his reply, returns the compliment by associating the name of the Bishop with that of the celebra ted Monroe Edwards, and diaws a parallel case between them.
