- A- friend has informed us of the following
facts* which were communicated to
him by a gentleman just arrived in this city
from the West. They disclose the dis-r
graceful conduct of a Government agent, j
which calls for investigation bv Congress.;
At a recent sale of public lands the pur- j
hasers came prepared to pay in bills off
Jie Bank of the United States, which they j.
- wd brought with them for that purpose.' j
der the sale, these bills were tendered j i
' Davment. but thev wprp hv the I

rent, who stated that he had received j;
Orders to that eflect from Washington. In!?
this dilemma, the purchasers accepted the
friendly offices of the agent, himself, who <
very kindly discounted their notes at the <
moderate rale of fire per cent. lie. sub- 1
sequently disposed of those same funds .
/ individuals who wished to made remittan- <
ces to the eastward, at a premium of two *
< per cent.; thus realizing by the transac- f
tion, as he himself acknowledged, the
handsome sum of sixty thousand dollars! j
Wheat Crops.?We are sorry to learn 1
, from the Wiliiamsport Banner, that the ic
wheat crop in that neighborhood is not!8
I likely to turn out so well as anticipated. I
It is stated that the ravages of the fly are '
ve*y obvious in many fields of early sown t
B wheat; and (hat from present appearances \
L uo| more than half the usual product is
K| anticipated. It should, however, be re- (
Hp membered, that the spring is late and the c
B crop9 consequently very backward ; and \

We yesterday stated that money was at c
present bringing an intorest at the rate of n
^l'rom 30 to 40 per cent per annum. This tl
m was upon the note s of men of business, wide- r
W ly known in the community, and whose pa- a
* per was just as good as that of any banjc in
^ Wall street. In other eases the rate of d&*
count is Jar. greater. We have been in- J
formed by one of the brokers of this city f
? that the notes of good men, but who were ti
N not known as men of business, were selling i j
' at the rate of one-half per cent per day, or j j
/fifteen percent, per month. One thousand) j
dollars loaned out at this rate, with the in-1 /
terest paid evprv month aud added to the ti
principal, would in one year amount to $5,- a
300*. What an enormous interest! ?

| The Convention met this evening at can- i
! f'l.> HfrhfcBnravcflAv Rev. W. Q. Beattie. i ,
o"?;--v The
minutes of yesterday were read.
The committee appointed to consider the I
practicability of appointing an agent in the j
temperance cause, submitted the following (
report. The committee appointed to inquire
into the practicability of employing an \
agent for this Convention, respectfully rc- j
port: That they believe ?pch an agency .
would greatly promote our objects. If tern,
i porance Societies were established in all our*
churches, still, the occasional visits of an~1
- Agent, would have a happy effect 011 their j ]
spirit and energy, and would be a means of I ]
preventing that relaxation of effort, which
lias been but too common in our Societies. 1
But when it is recollected that there are ]
churches and neighborhoods within our li- ]
mils, where temperance societies do not ex- 1
. ist; where the Public mind is not informed 1
* ' - 1
on this subject, they can conceive of no bet- ! j
ter means to awaken public attention, and to ]
impart information, than the employment of
an intelligent and active Agent. Did our
resources admit ofit, they would recom,
mend the employment of such an agent at
once, who should visit alt our societies and
churches, and by lectures and public addresses
on the subject of Temperance, j
. stir up the Societies to more active dili
1 genceand assist in the formation ofnewSoci- j
1 eties. This course would give a new impulse ;
! to this great work of reforming the habits and \
i morals of Society. But as we may not be j
{ prepared at present for this measure; they |
' j recommend that the Convention accept the j

| disposed to devote a part of their time to this j
j important object. In conclusion, they would i
I express the hope that some of our members,!
! who possess the information and the ncces"j
sary qualifications, would make tlie experii'ment,
ancj by the next meeting ofConvenj
tion, we shall be prepared to determine
on the practicability and advantages of this j[
i measure.

. \ had discharged the duty assigned them of
.! requesting a copy of Mr. WilkinAddress
j for publication;?that they had obtained a
| j copy and placed it in the hands of the Sec- j

Dyspepsia and Liver Complaints.
ARE universally acknowledged to 1 .ve total Iv

and superceded the necessity of every ot. . -ncdj
of treatment, wherever the aboro diseases aro
found to exist, as well as in enlargement of tbd
Spleen and in Jaundice.
Among the symptoms of Dyspepsia and Liver
Complaints, arc flatulency, sourness or burning !
in Iho stomach, melancholy, irritability, disa- '
grecable taste in the month ; great irregularity, of
appetite, which is sometimes voracious, and at
other times greatly deficient, thirst, fetidbreath,
nausea weakness of the stomach, acid eructations,
palpitation, drowsiness, irregularity of the bowels,
pressure on the stomach alter meals, pain in
tho he*J, dizziness or vertigo; confusion of inind,
attended with loss ofinemory,a gnayring in the
stomach when'empty, dullness, uflection ofsight |
and hearing, pain and weakness in the back, lan- j
guor, disturbed sleep, coldjfectand hands, tremor, !
uneasiness in the throat, cough, pain in the side j
or breast. Ac.
These medicines arc becoming known and valued.
Each box is accompanied with numerous Cor.
tificatcs from the highest sources of respectability.
The unrivaled success of the medicines, in curing
the above maladies has given them a reputation
which time only can destroy.
Those Pills need but a irial to recommend
They aro purely vegetable and well calculated
for tho removal of all Billious complaints.
They act specially upon the Liver, when in a
torpid condition, carrying off a large quantity of
bile, through tho influence of the excerncnt function,
which, if suffered to remain in tho system,
would produce either Jaundice, Liver Complaint,
Billious Fever, Fever and Ague, or some other
grievous bodily affliction. In all cases of torpor
of the bowels, they act like a charm'. In recent
cases of Dyspepsia, they are a certain cure. A/any
persons who wero subject to violent attacks
of sick head ache, have l?ecn much benefitted, and
several perfectly cured in a few wcekB by their
use. They are highly recommended as a preventive
and cure of Billious complaints. Persons?
who are subject to that distressing complaint,
seasickness, by taking a portion or two of them
1 ^ fbw dar? previous to embarking on board the
r c>.
vessel, will bo almost certain to escape k. jtomales
can use them at any period, without incurring
any risk. Persona going to sea, or to &
southern climate, should by all means tako some
of these Pills with them.?Their virtues will remain
unimpaired for years in any climate. No j
family should be without these Tills; a portion of
them, taken occasionally would bejthe means of
preventing much suffering from sickness. It is
from neglect of keeping up a regular peristaltic
action of the stomach and bowels, thus suffering
to be absorbed and mingled with the blood, anas,
similated fluids, that most diseases are produced,
i Dr. P. fee's confident that no person whogives
' these Pills & fair trial, will ever after feel willing
to be without them. The testimony of thou

sands speaking in the highest trims of their efficacy,

Dr. P. has acquired as the inventor of tbo .

those wishing to make a trial tof their virtue*^
They contain not a particle of .Mercury, 09 anf"
ingrodicnt that does not act in harmony with
health and oppose disease.
Dr. P. wishes it distinctly understood, that
these Pills possess beneficial qualities independent
of their purgative effects * they are both ton!
ic and deobstrucnt, acting upon the secreting and
cxhalont functions ;tbus qtrcngtheniog the patient,
while they remove obstructions ?Medicines
which possess no other/ excepting cathartic
qualities, debilitate the pafieat, and their repeated
