Sugars bayo risen considerably in price of late, in consequence, it is said, of short crops occasioned by the drought of last Summer; but we apprehend that speculators are at tho bottom of it. Dry Goods are down in price, be cause of a greatly overstocked market. .- <3no of our exchanges says: ^importers of foreign goods,-in-Ntnr t'oXarc shipping home a portion of Jffstocks us they can only sell them m a loss greater than freight both ways insurance, charges, kc. This is, in one view, a; good thing, and we trust our importations will be less hereafter.? So long as foreign goods flow freely into the country, money will flow freely nnt nf it.

LYNCH LAW.?The Rochester Dem ocrat has the following account of ano ther outrage in Kansas: On the 17th inst., Mr. Phillips, a lawyer, was decoyed to the banks of the Missouri rivor, where he was suddenly seized and forced into a skiff, and car-! rieu across tho river into Missouri thence he was taken seven fiiilcs to Weston. i An oiu warehouse stands jnst below the town; he was taken there, his head was shaved, his face blacked, ho was tarred and feathered, and then ridden upon a rail through the streets of Wes ton, while music horrible and hideous accompanied the procession. Before the hotel they exhibited him; and then a negro was compelled to sell him to the lowest bidder, and they of fered to him every insult in their pow er. After detaining him several lioure in this manner, repeatedly tolling him :hat if he would not leave the territory >r give them his promise in writing hat he would leave, they would hang lim.

No attention was paid to her letter, and she then began to got really alarmed; so raising what money ihe couiu irom nor rrfemEJ'BtfC'fooK sassago for home. On board the vessel in which she lafled, she met with a young man who he had known from Childhood, and who lad been a suiter for her hand previ us to her marriage with her husband.

Tim n!,l lady informed her that her husband had indeed taken up his abode with the housekeeper, but that he had kept his residence a profound secret. In a state bordering upon frenzy, the un fortunate woman was about to rush forth in search of further information, when singularly enough, her faithless husband entered the room. He quail ed before the glance of his injured wife whom he-had thought Btill in England, ind wheti bIio appealed to his feelings, is a husband and a father, and asked to snow why ho had thus deserted her, he nerely replied that ho could not.help limself? tliat ho would place no obsta ile in her way to a divorce, and that icr best course would be to marry the oung man who had accompanied her orne, (for she had informed him of the articulars concerning the passage.?)

Robbery and Threatened Murder. Two men naraod Harvey Dollison and Harvey Ryan, were committed to the jail of this county last week on a cliargo of robbery wiili ibreatened mur der. The facts as we liav" heard them, are briefly these, on Sunday night the 20th instant about ten or eleven o'clock Dollison and Ryan callcd at the house of Mr. John Rogers, near Newtown, ia*adfa this county, and asked to stay all night. ' Their request wbs granted. They then called fur something to eat, which tho girl proceeded to prepare. While aha was out they informed Mr. Rogera.(wlio is quite old and feeble) that it was bis muney they were after. Hb told them ! lie had very little about tbe house.? | Tliey told him they knew he had plenty of it, nnd that they would eilhor have it ?r take liis life. Again be informed them that he hud very little money in his possession, whereupon they struck him over tbe head with a heavy club, felling him to thi floor, where he remain ed insensible for sometime, while tho ruffians proceeded to search for the thoiiey, but found only ten or twelva dollars. Dollispn then wanted to kill the old men outright, as well as the old lady who was in bed, an unwilling wit ness to all that transpired, having been entirely helpless for years Ryan protest ed against taking ilieir lives, end the two fled the bouse. The next duy or two they were both arretted near Uniunfown in Fayette County, and brought to this place for trial* It is eaid that Mr. Rogers had loaned nut several thousand dollars but a few days befote the assault, which, n? doubt was supposed by the robbers, still to be ill his possession. Dollison has lately been releasedfrom the Western Peniten tiary, where he was sentenced by tbe court of this county ayear or two since. The above are said to be the facts of this outrage. The public, however, would do well to withhold any judg ment until the whole matter is legally investigated. All know how very widely the truth frequently differs from com mon rumor in such cases, as well as dan ger of injustice to accused parties, by forming opinions before the facts are le galy ascertained.? Wayncilurg Mil. Destructive Whirlwind in Michigan. The town of Marathon, Lapeer coun ty, Michigan, was visited with a destruc tive tornado on Tuesday, the 15th in stant, the day before the terrific torna do which occurred at Chicago. In the destructive course of the whirlwind buildings wote unroofed and trees up rooted. A widow Luthor's house was demolished, and some of her furniture carried off in the whirl. Her aon, a young man of eighteen or twenty years clung to a wild plum tree which was wrenched off; ho was thrown down, with his arm broken, and is seriously hurt. The heaviest loss will be in the des truction of the valuable pine and other timber in its course. So great was the force of the whirlwind that notbingcould Withstand it. The air was literally fil led with fence rails, limbs of trees, boards, rafters, shingles, &c., which were lifted to an immense height, the course of the whirlwind was in a nearly east direction, ranging from twenty rods to a half mile in width, and muking a clean sweep as it went. A bed was taken out of Mrs. Luther's house, and sailed up wards as naturally as though the feath ers of which it was made had never been plucked from the bodies to which they had once belonged. Near Crawfurd's is a small lake, a. bout forty rods wide and fifty or sixty long, the water of which was raised higher than the tops of trees, leaving the lake nearly dry. From thence it passed through a forest, mowing its WBy till it came to the town of Marathon. The roofs of the buildings were raised entire to height of twenty or thirty feet when the whirl would break them up and scatter the fragments in all directions.?
