We take this opportunity of expressing our high esteem fortius gentleman, for the noble and disinterested exertions he used during tho recent cent-fit. On his return from the East he was threatened and browbeaten forcxpressing his sen timents upon the contest that was then coming on. Every exertion was used to awe him into si lence, and to deter him from using his iulhicuce in favor of the democratic citmliilute. But with fearless independence, and with true devotion to the cause of freedom ; regardless of consequences, he enters the political field, visiting every portion of the district, addressing the people, and nrrous- ing them to action. And wc urc happy to nay that he has now the gratification of seeing the cause for which he. has laboured so zealously, suc cessful. And let the rcsultleach the fotilmouthed declaimers who dared to attack the reputation of a highniinded, honorable, and worthy citizen, to bolster up an unholy cause, that we have an in telligent community, which will ever express at the polls their honest indignation at such base and unjustifiable means for mere party purposes. 'The same means were resorted to to injure Mr. Dodge. Whilst he was using every exertion to explain the principles of his party and to forward the cause of Democracy, he was ascailcd with the keenest shafts of malice, the foulest calumnies were circulated on tho eve of tho election iu the remotest part of the district, so that it prevented a contradiction. But after all the c?;ertions of our opponents, after the many wilful falsehoods and the many false issues they attempted to make, the cause of truth has been successful.

We think note holders would be unwise in suffering a sacrifice on the money, as we have con tinence in the ultimate solvency of the institution. The Crop in Wentrru IVrtv York. A correspondent of the liochester Dai ly Democrat, writing from Buffalo, after having traversed the Western part of the btate, remarks: Throughout all this part ol the btate, the prospects of agriculture arc remarkably encouraging. Wheat has an almost unprecedented growth of straw, and it is said to be filling finely. Many fields are already whitening for the har vest, and the continued warm weather is rapidly carrying the whole beyond the reach of rust the only foe which the wheat grower has now to fear. A very few days will place it beyond all possible danger of harm from that event. The growth of Indian corn is thus far most uxuriant. There is a larger number of acres under cultivation in the western part of the State than probably ever before, and farmers sav that the prospects of the erops have never been better. Barley, Oats, Potatoes, ic. promise full returns ; and the hay crop is immense, and with another week of good weather, will be se cured in first rate order. The Burning Mountain. This coal mine, which we have fre- quendy noticed, and which took fire a bout eighteen, months since, continues burning with renewed force. There are now three distinct craters, varying in di ameter from thirty to seventy-five feet, and each at a depth of from fifteen to twenty-live below the surface.- The heat emanating from the craters is extremely intense, from which issue immense vol umes of smoke, and the smell of sulphur is any thjng hut agreeable. The rumbling noise would make a visiter think of earth quakes, and his examinations would eon sequentlybe made with a very careful step. The vegetation for a great distance round has been completely destroyed ; and its seared appearance gives a desolate appearance, and adds to the terrific char acter of the work of destruction. We cannot conjecture when the fire will stop, or how it may be quenched by the ma nagement of the proprietors; but it is an extraordinary phenomenon, and as such is well worth a visit from the scientific and curious. Pottsville Emporium. Powfx of KlectrieilT. A salad of mustard or water-cress may be produced in a few minutes by the as- nccinciiy. The process is to nmnerse the seed for a few days previous lv, in diluted oxymuriatie acid, then sow in a very light soil, letting it be covered with a metallic cover, and then bring it,n contact with an electrical machine. By the agents employed in this process, eggs, which require from nineteen to twenty days' application of animal heat to hatch them may be hatched in a few-hours liain water, apparently 'free from any riox ious aninnlculx, may in an hour be ren dered full of living insects !

A Revolutionary worthy who visited Pittsburg in 1781, thus spoke of the then future Birmingham of the Ohio Valley : " Pittsburg is inhabited almost entirely ty Scotch and Irish, who live in paltry og houses, and are as dirty a in the north of Ireland, -or even Scotland.

Thus dissruised. he calls at his liouse, and being admitted into the gar- en, beholds his wife lost to every plea sure but that of weeping over the spike nard, which 6till flourishes under her care. . ,.
