Hodges, at the Post Office showed us a day or two since a bunch of grapes, plucked from a vine on his farm on the Western Branch, of the Isabella species, nearly or quite full grown, of the second crop, and only wanting a few weeks of warm sun to ripen. We know not whether this is a common thing or not, but that our climate has been remarkably mild this season is evidenced by all around ns. We have in the garden at taohed to lire house we live in an apple tree load ed with fruit of the second growth. ELECTION IN MICHIGAN. It’s all right in Michigan, the Democrats have carried every thing before them—Governor, Leg islature and all. The Democrats have permitted the Whigs to carry one or two counties just to keep up their spirits. MAfJSACHUSETTS ELECTION. An election lor Governor, Lieut. Governor, members of the Senate and House of Representa tives anil a ineniUW of Congress in the 9th Con gressional District, was held in Massachusetts on Monday the 10th inst. Gov. Briggs will proba bly lack about 1.000 votes of having a majority over all his opponents. We perceive by the re turns, says the Baltimore Sun, that the Whigs have a plurality in all the counties heard from ; and those yet to come in — Barnstable, Dukes and Nantucket—are strongly Whig. THAT COLLECTORSHIP. A little difficulty has taken place in our party, in relation to an appointment in the gift of the Collector, which was anxiously sought by two of our friends, but which was given to a third friend by him. 'I'llis difference the vvhtgs, ever active, ever watchful, are using every means to fan into a flame that will consume the democracy of Nor folk. We do not intend to enlist either in favor of or against the Collector, so far as our own party is concerned, and will only say that the appointment finally made by him, is entirely unexceptionable to our friends, so far as the individual is concerned, and would have received the unanimous approval of our party, if our friends had nut committed them selves to other candidates; but we will not permit our opponents, onr constitutional political enemies, to step in and fan the flame of discord, without rebuking the interference. The great charge made by a writer in the Herald of this morning is, that the Collector feasted Mr. Tyler, while President—that he attended the first public meet ing held in his favor, and when they were few in numbers, asked if they were all friends present_ astonished, perhaps, to find that the little patriot hand was so extensive already, and which was destined to grow so large, that it could control the election, as it did in 1844, when the friends of Mr. Tyler gave their vote to James K. Polk, among whom none more heartily espoused his •cause than did the Collector. That the whig party can never forgive the Collector for his friendship to John Tyler, we ran well understand, for that is the unpardonable of fence with them; but their attempt is as ridicu lous as it is fatuilous, to make it a cause of offence with the present administration. We glory in the fact, that we sustained Mr. Tyler throughout the perilous contest he fought with an unprinci pled majority, with Mr Clay at its head, through the years 1841, and ’42, when he conquered the hydra, and we have no doubt tint every friend of his feels the same conscious pride, the Collector among the number. It was Mr. Tyler who crushed the whig party, supported only by that indomitable, and invincible “ Corporal’s Guard,” that met and parried every assault of an enraged foe, by whom it was surrounded. It was Mr. Tyler who gave life and hope to the democratic party, when it was stricken down by the false promises and professions of the leaders of the whig parly—and it was the truth and patriotism of his friends that gave power and effect to the democra cy, to enable them to consummate the triumph in 1844. which placed Jame9 K. Polk in the presi dential chair. We, therefore, say to the whigs, that the de mocratic party, or rather Mr. Polk, is not a viper to sting the bosom that warmed it into life, and that their labor of love, in the present instance, will be as worthless, as it is gratuitous.

I lie Coal Business at Pottsville, Penn., is ex tending with eri-at rapidity. It is computed by the Journal that more than £1,000.000 have been expended in the region during the past year in making improvements of various kinds. At l‘*ast GOO new houses for miners have been built, exclusive of those in the largo towns. The consequence has been an extraordinary activity in trade, and business of every' kind has been unu sually brisk this year. During the boating sea son of next year, Pottsville expects to send 40, 000 tons o. coal to market per week,—the trade will steadily increase at the rate ofbetween 2 and 400,000 tons per annum. ARKFS I AND IMPRISONMENT OF MR ROVVLEY-H1S INSANITY—MORE MYSTE \\ o mentioned yesterday the arrest in tins city of a man by the name of Davis, v\ ho was suspected, on what grounds particularly wo could not ascertain, of being the person who had robbed Mr. Rowley, of \Y rent ha m, some weeks ago, on board the steamer Massachusetts. Measures had then been taken to have Mr. Rowley, who, it was supposed, was in New York, stop in this city on his return home, that be might identify the prison er, if indeed he were the guilty man. In this state of things, Mr. Blnke.of Wremham, brother in-law of Rowley, arrived here last evenin'?, and stated to the examining magistrate thalMr.Row ley was now in jail in Boston, and to all ap pearances a roeiug- maniac! He had intended to leave Boston on Monday last for New York, and had purchased a ticket for that purpose when he was arrested on a writ issued against him on the complaint o| some of his creditors, and imme diately incarcerated in jail. In order to effect this, it became necessary for his credit.-rs to swear that they had reason to suppose lie intended to leave the Slate, and this they could of course honestly do, alter he had purchased a ticket for New York. Whether they suspected him of foul play, we have no other means of knowing than Irom the farts here given; but from these we judge that such must have been thecase. Mean time Row ley has become, to all appearance, a maniac, and the anticipated identification of Da vis is at an end lor the present, at least. We un derstand that the examining magistrate decided to release him, and presume that he is now at large. The above paragraph from the Providence Ga zetto of Saturday is substantially correct. In ad dition to the particulars therein staled, we have obtained the following:—On the 1st inst. Mr. Rowley arrived in tins city from New York, for the purpose, be said, of searching fur the person w ho had robbed him, and he went over to Fast Boston to note particularly the passengers who sailed in the British steamer that day. On Mon day afternoon he was arresied by deputy sheriff larbell.at the suit of Henry Pettes Sc Co., for $1500, and in the evening was committed to jail. On Wednesday, be being still in jail, three more writs were served upon him. viz:—one in favor of Davis. Palmer Sc Co., for 8800; one in favor oi YY m. K. Blanchard Sc Co., for 81ii00. and one in favor of Alfred A. Andrews Sc Co., for 8800. It sane when arrested, he was observed to be otherwise soon afterward. The symptoms of mental aberration continued to increase up to Sa turday evening, when bis creditors accepted some of his friends for bail, and they released him from jail for the purpose of conveying him to the insane hospital at YVorceslor—Boston Post. [This gentleman it will be recollected was robbed while on board of a steamer in Long Is land Sound, having accepted part of a poach from a fellow passenger, which deprived him of all sense. The papers at the time of his robbery very quaintly remarked that the money of which he was robbed was all bis own.—JYeic Era.'] From the New York Morning' Ncwa. DESTRUCTIVE K!R E— ANOTHER FE AR ful explosion-several i.ivrs prop v. HLY LOST-MANY SEVERELY INJURED. Last evening, about half past six o'clock, a fire broke out in Cedar street, Nos. 25 and 27. which was attended with very serious consequences._ The fire was first discovered in the third floor, occupied by Ellis and King as an umbrella facto’ ry, and spread through the building with alarm ing rapidity. The firemen, with their usual promptness, were immediately in attendance, and the premises were filled with these chivalric and daring men, when an explosion, similar to the one in Broad street, suddenly took place, blowing se veral of them through the windows into the street, and shaking down part of the wall or chimney,’ scattered :he heated bricks among the crowd as-’ sembled below. The report was nut heavy, but the flash appeared like a fierce, bluish-while flame, extending instantly nearly across thestreet, in a horizontal direction from the windows and’ doors, and completely firing the upper portion of the building throughout. Several of the firemen were picked up insensible and conveyed to the adjoining houses, and many more were |pd bleed ing and bruised from the seene of their labors_ We could not learn the cause of this frightful ad dition to the horrors of a New York fire, but on investigation, it will doubtless be found’ to have proceeded from saltpetre, or some other harmless substance. T11R ST K A M E R PRIN C ETON The " Union,” some months ago, alluded jn complimentary terms, to the despatch to which the orders of the Navy Department had been car ried into execution by some of our vessels Baltimore paper asks, with a sneer, if the passage of the Princeton from Philadelphia to Pensacola in 2o days was one of them. We have taken the trouble to impure of those who know tne facts and finds that the Princeton renders a good ae' count of herself. She was sent out to Pensacola in August last, with orders to rely upon sails alone, in order to save her coal for use on the stations. In this passage she made 220 knots un der royals in one day, and heat the John Adams by nearly a week on the passage—both vessels having been delayed by protracted ealms. With the coal she brought out, and a supply from Pensacola, she has performed four passages between Pensacola and Vera Cruz, of about four days arid a half each. We will lake the last as an instance. A despatch arrived.from fhe Navy Department to be sent to Vera Cruz without an hour’s delay. The Princeton wa« got under ] way in ilie teeth of a soul burster, and, with the wind dead ahead for more than 70 hours, j delivered the despatch in 102 hours at Vera Cruz. 1 his is done with one fourth her steam-power, with nn expenditure of GO tons of anthracite’ the trip, which, at the usual cost in i’lnladel pliia, is about $200. Has the Postmaster General a more expeditious or economical post-route south of \Vashington of 827 miles?—JV. O. Picayune, J\'uv. 1. JOHN C. CALHOUN. 'I here are a few men to whom when there is real danger in affairs, the eyes of the people in stinctively liifn f.jr guidance and help. In the midst of political strife such men he ns much and even more abused than the leaders of a different character. 1 here arc other men who are eleva ted in times of peace and prosperity, hut when dark clouds arise are instantly forgotten. Mr. Calhoun belongs to the first class. "He is revi! ed when in office, but lie is no sooner out of of fice than the people ol all parlies begin to desire his rpturn. I rue, most men at the North have thought him wrong, sometimes ; hut no one ever douhiedthat asstatesman, he belonged to the very highest rank, and very few, ifany. however much they have tried to do so, have ever been really able to expel tioin their minds, the conviction that lie is an honest and sincere patriot, and as much above most politicians in moral, ns lie is m intellectual greatness. When the office of Secretary of Slate w as made vacant hv the sad accident on board the Princeton and Mr. Calhoun’s name was mentioned, the whole country called him to that high station. Now there is the same desire that he should return to the Senate The I position which he took in the Senate on the Ore gon, question, was so profoundly wise, that the attention of patriots through the country was fas tened to it with strong approval. Now that the furious arid reckless portion of people talk crazily of injustice and war, that approval desires the re turn of this statesman to the place where he may again enforce the same councils of wisdom.— iY. Y■ Jour. Com. From the Richmond Knquirer. A SECOND TERM. One ol the thousand schemes originated by the Whies to embarrass Mr. Folk and weaken the moral influence of the Administration,in carrying ont the measures demanded by a large majority o'? the people, has been to fabricate a rumor that the Legislature ol Tennessee will adopt resolutions indicating a desire on the part of its majority that Mr. Polk may be induced to run for a re-election. How easy would it he. if this notion were believed, to raise up prejudice against every act of the President! No appointment could he made,_no measures recommended, without being at once distorted by the ingenious Whigs, into a base in stroment for his re-election. The Washington correspondent of the Nashville Banner, sneeringly says: “ I hope there is truth in the rumor. Let ihe scheme be tried—the quicker the better. Mr. Polk means it all. Why not come out then and show his hand at once!” Very kind and considerate, truly! But the Nashville Union nails the base metal to the coun ter. We hope tliat, after the following explicit and thorough denial, the Whig press will no lon ger play upon that siring : “ Every Democratic member of the Legislature will at once pronounce it utterly false that such an idea was ever entertained for a moment. This is a mere specimen of the kind of stuff with which the Banner teems from its notorious correspon dent.” 1 We would advise the Whigs to imitate the can dor of the Alexandria Gazette. That paper is convinced by the evidence laid before the public, that the President is sincere in his declarations and “ weans ” not to he a candidate a second time. He is now diligently devoted to the discharge of his high duties, and after the 4th March, l"840. will return into the people’s hands the weighty trust. It will require firmness and wisdom to meet the difficulties which will he thrown in his way, at home and abroad—but he is buoyed op by the conviction, that the people will never desert an officer, who is honest and faithful to fiis princi ples. * From the New York Jeffersonian. THE EXTENSION OF OUR NATIONAL DOMAIN. Notwithstanding this country from the dawn ot the Republic has been gradually extending its bounds and dispensing its manifold blessings to millions of freemen until it has become a terror to the crumbling monarchies of the old world_we still have those among ns boasting the name of American, who strange though it he, regard our every onward step towards an extensionof terri tnry and national power with a degree of timidity ridiculous in the extreme. They~even use their press in sounding the alarm, and leave no effort untried calculated to close the door against any further ingress of those anxious to become mem hers of the united and invincible Republican family. They seem to fear that our country will become too extensive, our people too numerous, nor government too powerful, and, tell it not in Gath, our Republican institutions too wide spread and' benignant in their influence nnd operations. Ac cording to their preaching an increase of national domain is hut another name for national plunder • and every lawful extension of territory or addi* lion of national wealth is indicative of a spirit of inordinate and aggressive ambition and fore shadowing ultimate ruin. We perfectly noree with a cotemporary who says, that the ambition for national aggrandizement which would acquire domain and power in defiance of the rights of others, which would r> gard the possessions of the weak as lawful spoils, because it has the strength to seize upon them, cannot be too se verely reprehended j but there is a wide differ ence between this, and the disposition to secure such territorial advantages ns may come leoiij' mately within our reach, or be voluntarily offered : by other nations, when it can he done without the j slightest infraction of the right of tubers. The j first is the spirit of unlawful connuest, and should i therefore he discarded; the last is a laudable ambition to acquire whatever promises to eontri bote not only to national greatness hot to the general g(K>d. Nor can w« discover any rause for alarm in the tnanifestion of this laudable am bition. If our institutions rest upon a proper basis, if • truth and justice are their foundation principles, ! we cannot see how they are to bo impaired by enlarging their sphere. They have been found no less competent to the safety, prosperity, and happiness of twenty six States than thirteen, and we can see no good reason why they should not he rqnally efficacious in the government of twice that number. [ here is no danger of onr having too much territory, so that it is contigu ous, properly acquired, and honetlly controlled ! and protected; there is no danger of onr h»** ■ ing too much wealth, so tlyit we do not became corrupt ami eflcniiiiate ; there is no danger "f our having too much power, if it bo properly exer cised . W e are not among those who ran sympathise with the fears and scruples of the timid and ever doubting who would have our country reject a valuable boon voluntarily proffered, or surrender our just rights to a matter in dispute, lest conduct j so becoming freemen should stimulate a spirit of conquest. Feeble, indeed, must be the judgment of those who would have our country hold its own 1 with a hesitating gratep, or assert its rights to our own territory in equivocal language, lest it should become unnecessarily expensive in the first in stance, or give offence to a rival nation in the second. There is no feature in onr government reqnir- i mg our boundaries to be forever circumscribed within certain narrow and immovable land-marks. There is no element in popular sovereignty that would endanger the system by widening its sphere of action, or by making its sway coextensive with the continent. The extent of territory is in 11solt of no importance, if wisely governed._ As all power with us properly emanates from the people, they have only to be true to them se|ve-'—to he ever vigilant and tenacious of their rights, and in the selection of servants to fill places of power—select only those who will on all occasions, and in all emergencies hold the balance of justice with a firm and equal hand then all w ill be well over what extent of coun try soever the stars and stripes shall proudly float.

Buried Alive.—A few days ago, as Mr. i Craig Vanmeter, of Pittsgrove township, Salem ! county, N. J., was in the act of descending an I old well, the wall caved in both below and at7ove, i and hurried him at the depth of about thirty feet! 'The well was some sixty feet deep, and at the i time of the accident Mr. V. was suspended in the bucket about midway. The wall caved in about seven o’clock in the morning, when the alarm was given, and the neighbors began a search for what they deemed his dead body. At five o’clock in the afternoon, they found him alive, and but very little injured, the stones having formed an arch over his head. His escape under the cir cumstance was truly wonderful.—Ledger. A Long Stitch.—Some time about the 1st of July a lady of Springfield, Mass, 65 years of age, accidentally introduced a fine sewing needle into her hand, which was broken off leaving about half its length between the thumb and fore finger, in a direction towards the middle or palm of the left hand. A physician was requested to extract it, but as there was so linle pain or inconvenience arising from it, advised her to let it remain, rather than cut among the tendons for it. In a very few days all trouble and apprehension were over in regard to it. About the last of September, she felt some pain in the right side of the abdomen and just above the hip, which she conceived to be a spasm, and began rubbing it with her hand, when directly the needle came forth and wa9 ex tracted. The broken point was about 7 8 of an inch in length, and its fine polish had suffered but little from corrosion. The course which the needle took in making this circuitous journey is entirely unknown to her. The distance it travell ed in about three months could not be much less than four feet, its nearest course; but for aught known might have wandered twice that distance before it appeared at that point from which it was extracted. HAMILTON ROWAN AND THE WATCH* Hamilton Reman, on his way to Holyhead, stopped to dine at the little inn at Chapel Currig. There was nothing in the house but a shoulder of motion, which Rowan ordered to be roasted._ Presently the master of a neighboring hunt, with two brother Ntmrods, rushed into an adjoining room, and swearng they were half starved, clam orously demanded what they could have for din ner. The landlord, with many apologies, told them he had nothing but bread and cheese to offer them. “ Nothing but bread and cheese! Nothing but bread and cheese!” they all exclaimed, stamping about the room. " I’m extremely sorry, gentlemen,” said the landlord, much embarrassed, " but—” “ How d’ye mean,” interrupted the master of the hunt, imperiously. “ By -- f | d„r,»t un_ derstand this. Gwillam ! Nothing but bread and cheese to offer us!
