breaking of the Atlantic Tele

laid, has given rise to much speculation
as to tl>e prospect of a final success; but
chief engineer of the company, Mr.
Bright, says it only streDgtheus his hopes
of a complete success, after a few improve
ments are made in in the machinery for
hyiug. The break was occasioned by
putting too much power on the regulating

Hif-Laiit week there was considerable
of a money panic in New York, occasion
ed by the Ohio Life Insurance and Trust
Cqoipany, and of John Thompson, a cele

ber of banks are also implicated in the
failure, amoug them the following; the

The money market generally has been
considerably disturbed by the large fail

now, however, pretty much over.

■; THE WARREN BANK. —The reported!
failure of the Warren County Bank itj
'seems is premature. The President and
'Cashier publish u card in the Ledger,
! stating that the liabilities of the Bank
arc but 305,000, and that 4, the bank lias
'•not sustained the loss of one hundred
"dollars, and our a.s>i-ts are boyoud any
"possible coutinrency and entirely sub
i "jecl to our control." The Ledger gives
| the following explanation of the cause ofj
the rumor, and which will be acceptable
news to those holding its notes in this
"It seems thai the whole trouble haa
1 grown out of the timidity ot the agent iu
New York, who, alter redeeming over
$ 10,000 of the notes <?f the Bank, was
seized with the panic himself, and refus
ed to take up any more —honee, the re
ported failure. The Bank is prepared to
i meet all demands, and bill-holders need
I have no fears as to the solvency of the
institution. The Warren County Bank
has upt failed or suspended —neither will
lit; the public may rest assured of that."

rays, for the first time since 13215 or 1828,
a legislature containing a Democratic ma
jority will assemble at Frankfort, the
capital of Kentucky. The Democrats
have since that date had the Coventor
and half the delegation in but
never the Legislature. The opposition
had permanent and enduring ascendency
'in that body that never could be shaken
in the least. But now, with the dawn

The "new era," which has brought
Kentucky and other slave holding ichig
States into the support of Buchanan
Detnocracv, was inaugurated by repudi-,
sting the Jeffersoniuu ideas in tavor of
freedom. The party is now wholly and
! i entirely devoted to the interests of Slave
ry, and therefore those who desire t<4 pcr
j petuate and extend that institution will
| HUpport the party which the Gazette fa
; ceticusly styles Democratic. Per contra-'
I rv, those who desire to maintain the pol
j icy of the fathers, and extend the area
of freedom, will vote against that party,

Free State Men I
It has always been a matter of aston
ishment to us, that the press which sus
j # r
taiued Dorr in Rhode Island, should con-
Ii % 7
demn the Free State men ia Ixansas. —
, Just aeo how great the difference in fa
-1 vor of the Kansas Free State men. Dow
. 1 and his followers, never pretended that
people outside of Rhode Island came in
. and controlled their election. They sim
ply contended that the right of suffrage
. was not as free as it ought to be, and
: o '
so they called a Convention of the peo
, pie, formed a new Constitution, adopted
it, ai;d elected Dorr Governor under this
new Constitution which was adopted iu
5 defiance of the existing State Governor,
j • i i
' and never recognised bv the legal voters.:
k i- * ° I
Of course the Supreme Court decided that
' he was not a Governor, neverthless he
was a Democrat and therefore such pi
" pers as the Lycoming Gazette ami JVar-
J ren Ledger justified Dorr and his par-!
? I tizans.
Now turn to Kansas. The Free State
| men refuse to recognise the validity of
: the Statutes passed by the so called Ter
ritorial Legislature. Why? Because as
. Dr. Gihon says on page 33 of his book :
j "This election (March 30, 1855.) was
. controlled almost entirely by citizens of
Missouri, who came into the territory in
j large parties, took possession of the polls,
- drove off the regularly appointed judges
aud chose others to answer their own ob-;
jects, elected persons who were not and
5 never bad been citizens of Kansas; and
I committed other atrocities, the details of
f which are absolutely too disgusting to re
f late. It is csiimated that about five thou
sand Missourians, led on by men claim
ing respectability, and certainly oecupy-
I ing prominent positions, visited the tcr-

Packer, should not receive the vote cf i
such, because he is iu favor of executing > 1
the euac-tmenis pressed bj the men who ,
abused the authority in Kansas as is here ]
described. Packer would still got some
votes, because there are some men in this 1
! county, as there are in every other eoun-H
tv, who don't care a copper about the he- ,
rocs of '7O, cr of any other period, " 01 * ,
what the Slave power may do. Only let j i
their party succeed, and they are satis-1

William F. Packer, no matter what his;
: influence on Kansas affairs would be.
Th£ of fluukerisni,;
The Democracy of Jefferson and Jack-! (
son was bold and manly, and therefore
commanded the respect of its opponents,
, but the democracy of Pierce and Jiuchan
|an is cowardly and mean. Hence the j
ibaek out of Win. F. Packer, when Wil-;
i mot invited him to canvass tlie State with
! h;m. Ilencc the withholding of the j
facts in the Kansas outrages. The Bu
chanan presses are afraid to publish the
fact? as given by their own men, They
praised lteeder to the skies, until he com-j
me need telling the public how the Kan
sas Nebraska Squatter Sovereignty bill
was working, when they gave him a cold
When Governor Geary was appointed,
their laudation was again up to the high
est pitch j but as soon as lie began to
stand in the way of the Border Ruffian
rule in Kansas he was removed by Pres
ident Buchanan; and new that a history
of his administration has been written by
his private Secretary, the hunker press
\docs net. even inform their readers that
such a history has been written. Instead
of that, we hear such notices as the fol
lowing from the Warren Ledger :
{'The Potter Journal is publishing ex
tracts from Dr. Somebody's book in Kan
sas. Juding from the extracts, we should
say that the book consists of a revamping
! of the Kansas correspondence of the 'J rib
' une, of last year. That is a uewway ofgot
tintr up a book, and the want of success
on the part of the Doctor, in its sale, will
deter others from attempting similar ab
surdities. Do you think the Doctor can
make Kansas bleed again, in Potter, Mr.
Journall How interesting, yet how sol
emn, poor Doctor Somebody."
We always knew that llunkcrism was
the reverse of manners, ami cowardice
iocms to be one of its characteristics,.
Perhaps the people of Warren County
will respect a paper that can only speak
of Governor Geary's Secretary as "Dr.
Somebody," but we suspect the editor
has under-estimated the iutelligenco aud
manliness of his readers. As to the peo
ple of Potter, we believe they have giv
en the Warren editor good evidence of
their ability to see through falsehood and
humbuggery, almost at first sight, and j
ther fore we think he need give himself
no trouble on their account.
TSte Grs&sgKtomtcr rath ton
We have in the Quindaro, (K. T.)
Chinduwan, the proceedings of two Free
State Conventions held at Grasshopper
Fails, —one being a Mass, and the other a
i Delegate Convention —the object of which
was to take into consideration the pro
priety of participating in the October
election. There were about four huu
-1 drcd persons present at the mass Conven
tion, representing every portion of the
i Territory. We give below the Rcsolu
* * i
tions adopted by the mass Convention,
by which it will be seen that it was de
termined to participate in the election.—
The resolutions also explain the reason
for so doing. The resolutions were sup
ported by speeches from Gov. Robinson,'
' Gen. Lane, Judge Smith, and other prom- i
j inent Free State leaders, and opposed by
Messrs. RcdpathP hiliips, and RCY. R. I).
Foster.The following are the resolutions:
i Whereas. It is of the most vital im
| portanee to the people of Kausas, that the
i Territorial Government should be eou-i
j trolled by the honafde citizens thereof,
' an j
U'/icmzs, Gov. Walker has repeatedly
pledged himself that the people of Kan-1
sua siiall have a full and fair vote at tLc j
election to be held ou the first Monday in
October, for Delegate to Congress, Mem
bers of the Territorial Legislature, aud
other officers, Therefore,
Resolved, That we, the people of Kan-,
sas, iu Mass Convention assembled, agree
i to participate iu said ejection.
Risolicd, That in thus acting, we rely
upon the faithful fulfillment of the pledge
of Gov. Walker, and that we, as hereto-:
fore, protest against the enactments fore
ed upon us by the votes of the people of

ceed to the appointment of a Committee ,
to wait upon the Territorial authorities, ,
and urgcutly insist upon a revision aud ;
correction of the wicked apportionment, :
endeavored to bo forced upon the people ;
of Kausas, to govern the selections of |
Members of the Territorial Legislature.
Resolved, That Gen. J. 11. Lane be:
authorized aud empowered to tender to '
Gov. Walker the force organized by him
under the resolution passed by the Con-'
vein ion at Topeka on the 15th of July;
last, to be used for the protection of the;
Resolved, That this Mass Meeting ex
press their unalterable determination to j
adhere to the Topeka Constitution and
Government, and that all our action shall (
be pointed toward setting that Govern
ment in motion iu a legitimate mauuer at
an early date.
The Convention then adjourned sim
The Delegate Convention was compos-'
ed of 163 members, and nominated, by
reclamation, Hap, Marcus J. Parrott, of
Leavenworth, as the Candidate for iJel
eeate to Congress. The resolutions were
unanimously adopted by the Convention
—Gen. Lane offering the first, and C.
Storrs jr. the second :
Resolved, that there be a Territorial
Executive CoiunJitee appointed by the ,
Chair, consisting of twenty members,
who shall keep an office at some central
point, and remain in session continually!
until! after the October election, and
•has five members shall constitute a quo- j
rum for the transaction of business.
Resolved, That this Convention rccoui-,
mend to the citizens of each voting pre
cinct in the Territory that they choose a
Committee of three responsible men, who
shall recoad all votes offered, and ii* any
sro refused, the reasons fur refusal; nmi
that the citizens be present in sufficient
numbers to protect the Committiecs.
Mr. Parrott accepted the nomination j
iu a nent speach, and the convention af
ter soiue speaking from other gentlemen,
adjourned sine die.
There is no Hallot Box Open to
the Teopie ol Kansas.
The burden of the allegations made by
the administration presses about the peo
ple of Kansas is, that they may, if they:
wish, correct all the wrongs o f which
they complain at the, ballot-box, but
thev will not. This is untrue. It
is all nonsense to talk to the people ol
Kansas about redressing their wrongs at
the ballot-box, so long as that ballot-box
is in the hands of their enemies, and
hedged about by just such restrictions as
those enemies see fit to make. All they
ask is a fair chance to vote. The Law
rence (K. T.) Republican say:
" We defy them to submit their pro
posed Constitution to a full and fair vote
of the whole people. We defy them to
; let the whole people have a fair chance
between it and the Topeka Constitution.
We defy them to let us have a fair and
honest election this fall in October, We
will agree forever after to abide the re
sult if, under the qualifications prescribed
for voters at the first election by the Or.,
ganic Act, Gov, Walker will order an
election, appoint the judges of that elcc-j
tiou himself, aud then submit the ques-;
tion of Freedom or Slavery—Topeka
Constitution or Lecompton Constitution!
—Delegates to Congress and Members of.
the Teiuitorial Legislature, to a peaceful,
arbitrament at the polls !
" We defy the pro-slavery party to
' acceptance of this proposition. We defy
. then to accept of either or all of them.
We konw they dare not, for we know
that nine-tenths of the people are with
us, and against them.
"We again dare them to an honest!
and fair trial of strength at the polls.
' The day that wituessess the ballot-box
freely and fairly opened to the people ofj
Kansas, under supervision of impartial j
Judges, will see the final settlement of
this whole Kansas imbroglio. Till then,
wide spread and fierce agitation, tumult,
disorder and confuisoa growiug worse
and worse every day, will reign, and UO;
power ou earth can prevent it."

For the last Week.
Our young townsman, Hugh Young
Esq., Associate Editor of the Herald of .
Freedom, has retired from the editorial
profession aud is no longer connected "with
that paper.
We are pleased to acknowledge the re- 1
ceipt of the September number of the
American Agriculturist, published at
New York, monthly, by Orange Judd at
$1 per annum. It is a new but very
welcome visitor to our table.
Our vicinity was visited by a pretty
severe frost on Monduy night last, and we
fear the ooru crop is considerably injured,
it not being "glazed" yet. We are not
informed of actual damage to it, but the
severity of the frost iu our valley, leads
us to believe that on the hills it has beou
destructive. Other crops thau corn are
advanced so as to be beyond danger of
111 effects of Mercury, or loss of appe
tite and strength, disturbed sleep, night
sweats, cough aud other symptoms indic
ative of debility. For these symptoms os
any cutaneous disease, proof of an impure

We neglected last week to acknowl
edge the receipt of No. 1 of THE ILLUS
j 11. T. Trail, published by Fowler A; Wells.
1308 Broadway N. Y., in two numbers,
I Drice, complete, SI 25. We looked it
over, and take pleasure in recommending
it for general use, believing that wore its
; precepts more generally practiced there
• would be Jess of misery and physical de
ibility, and more of manliness and true
human nature in the world. It is the
most complete gymualtic instructor we
here ever seen, and is also valuable as a
niQuitor of health and happiness.
Emerson's Lnitcd State* Magazine
for September is received, having its
usual choice variety of matter. We
learn that Emerson has purchased Put
nam's Magazine, and will publish the
two together from October under the
name of" Emerson's Inked States Mng
ia/.iue and Putnam's Monthly." Success

! to the enterprise.
The Cosmopolitan Art Journal, a
'quarterly, for September is received, bv
' which wc learn that the Cosmopolitan
Art Association are preparing for anoth
er distribution in January. The enter
prise is a laudable one, and a national
; one, though we regret to see the managers
of it sending to England to have their
engravings made. Can they not be as
'well done by our own artists? Try it
I next tiuio Messrs. Derby <t Co. Let
I American genius have precedence in all
things, and you will he doubly deserv.

Improvements. —Our Borough Coun
cil, for the enactment of the Side-M a!k
Ordiuance, are deserving of the thanks
of not only the pedestrians of the village,
j but of all travellers who come this way
for pleasure or on business. One can
now start from the head of Main Street,
on cither side, and walk nearly a hi;lf a
mile on nice side-walks, ten feet wide,
£ve feet of which in the center of the
walk is plank, The cross streets and the
two others running parallel with Main
Street are more or less provided with
side-walks of plank or gravel, at the op
tion of the builder. The ready compli
ance of property owners with the require
ments ot the Ordinance is certainly de
! serving of the commendation of all, and
; shows a public spirit which augurs well
for the future of our town. We are in
clined to believe that recent mineral de
velopments in this immediate viciuity,
will soon brighten up the prospects of
Coudersport, and though it may be some
time yet before the mineral wealth of our
county is fully developed, we speak con
lidently when we say that live years
hence will exhibit a vast and favorable
; change in the growth and prospects of
our village and its suburb">n vicinage.
f American Eagle Shot.- —Mr. N. V.
Jackson, ou Friday last, shot a young
Grey Eagle, within our Borough limits,
which measured, from tip to tip of wings,
5 feat four inches. The majestic bird
was first seen sitting on the dome of the
new Court House, when it flew off and
alighted on a tree in the edge of town,
where Mr. Jaeksou followed and shot it
We neglected to notice at the proper
time that Mr. Joel P. Randall, of Cran
; dal Hill, a few weeks since wounded and
. captured a fine large, though young, Ea
gle of the same species, measuring 7 feet
lrom tip to tip. One of the wings was
| fractured by the shot, and the noble bird
fell to the ground, where after a severe
contest, in which Mr. 11. got one or two
slight scratches, he succeeded in captur
ing it. The Eagle is now iu the posses
sion of Mr. D. W. Spencer of this place,
and with the exception of the loss of a
part of his right wing, is doing well, and
ready for a light with any one who plagues
; him.
