Bjfktthe President was 111 for some day last week, but was better on Wednesday, and abro'to attend a Cabinet meeting. The Executive Mansion is always unhealthy at this sea son. In a few days tho President will take up his residence at a pleasant cottage on the dge of the city, during which time the Whito House will undergo repairs. The Postmaster "General and some other officors of the Govern ment have taken airy lodgings at Georgetown. WHIG NOMINATIOWS. Jgy-The Dauphin Bounty Whigtioket is as follows : Legislature, 'Goorge T. Hummel, of Hummeistown, tmd'Lot Bergstresser, of Mif flin.; District Attorney, David Fleming, of Karrisiburg; County Treasurer, L. R. Metzger, or Kliddletown i County Commissioner, J. TV. Kerr, of flarriseurg ; irector of tho Poor, Samuel Grell, of Swtftara ; Auditor, Samuel Roach, of East Hanover. TROUBLE IN SEW HAMPSHIRE. The President is threatened with mutiny in bis own 'State. The free distribution of offioos among "Si'ree Soilers," and " Fire Eaters," to the, exclusion of the Union Saving Compromise wing of the party won't go down even in New Hampshire. Last week, Mr. Burke, formerly Oommissionor of Patents under Polk, and probably the ablest politician in New Hampshire, made a bold attack upon the Administration of President Pierce, and followed it up by a long published address to the -Democracy of New Hampshire. The Con cord Patriot, (the President's home organ,) of Monday, contains a bitter reply to Mr. Burke. It characterizes his -statements as malignant falsehoods and arrogant threats ; accuses him of cowardice, and calls him a bully and an as sassin, which traits the Patriot thinks he exhibited when he attaoked the'President through a .committee in the Democratic Convention, and failed to sustain himself before that body. The Patriot nays Burke's course is to be at tributed to his failure to obtain a lucrative office. Of course but the "outs" generally get to be the biggest party ! LeooFOOO Feud in Baltimore. A most bit ter and unrelenting feud exists among the Xooofooos in Baltimore. The animosity between Governor Lowe and Collector Thomas Bud their partisans, exceeds anything of the kind ever witnessed in Maryland. If President Pierce ha9 not had better Success elsewhere than is Maryland in producing harmony by the distribution of office, the party will be in a bad condition next fall. Every appointment made in Baltimore is said to have been made in opposition to tho emphatically expressed wish of the great mass of the Democratic party, and in accordance only with the wishes of a disorganizing clique of " Old Fo-(ies," who claim the right of rotating from one office to another. In a Bnaiil. The Looofooos of Westmore land oounty have nominated W'm A. Cook and Beni. Byrely for the Legislature. Three dele gates were selected to the nextState Locofoco Convention to nominate a candidate for Gover nor.-' Resolutions were -twice offered in the Convention approving of the administration of Bigler, and instructing the delegates for his re-nomination, but'they were both times laid en the (aiie'by decidod -votes. So the weakcBt Governor that Pennsylvania has had for years has been repudiated by the Locofoco " Star of the West." Pittsburg;, June 27. We were visited last night by a very destructive fire, which broke out in a eoal boat lying at the wharf of Clark & Shoud's warehouse, and which communicating to the warehouse, it was entirely oon- eumea, together with a large amount of goods, provisions, &c, on storage. Several warehouses adjoining were also destroyed, or more or less injured. Atkins & Kemble's warehouse was destroyed. Messrs. Malveny & Leslie, (re also heavy losers. The loss is estimated t $100,000, on which there is an insurance Of $40,000. C SAUCE or Attempt to Bkibe J. B. faster, Esq., Dr. Geo. Weiser and Mr. Charles Weaver, the latter, one of the prosent Com-missioners .of Northumberland county, were Arrested on Friday laBt, on a charge of attempting to bribe Christian Albert," one of the Commissioners of the same oounty, for the purpose of inducing him to give his official sanction towards a subscription of $200,000 by the scanty of Northumberland, to the stock of the Susquehanna Railroad Company. Trail Dollax Coin. At the last session of Congress seotisa of an act was passed, authorising a new gold coie of the denomination of three dollars. A coin of this value eraUjproTe advantageous is many respeots, as it will facilitate the making of change to a great degree. Having now one dollar pieces, quarter, half sad whale eagles and three dollar coins, there cazsat be much difficulty in making the ready change. The new ooin is to be issued shortly. Cssnmsi ro Hot Wiatheb. The Georgia ostuoat for hot weather is said to be simply a shirt eollar end pair of spurs. It was hot smooth last wk even to dispense with the Jastm. cm Fobsioi KsLMtioas. Despatches were received at Washington, on Wednesday last, giving the details of the recent movements of She turkiah and Russian forces. The Administration, in view of its advices, have no fears, however, that tho peace of Ettrape is to be disturbed by the Bussian-Turluak Question. Switiarland is deemed a fax man dclioate foioi- JIVRDEH WILIi OUT. If any Whig Journal at any time impeaches tho management of tho State Improvements, whioh oio under tho exclusive ooutrol of Loco fooos, no matter upon what authority, or how dear its proof, its statement or charge is pro nounccd a Whig lie, and aLooofooo denial thus made is regarded as quite sufficient to estab lisk the falsity of the impeachment. We may avail ourselves, therefore, of tho opportunity to spread before our readers what a Simon Pure Locofooo Journal, of no less character and influence than the Pittsburg Pott, snys of the Locofoco management of ourFublio Works. Road it, carefully, all ye who nro in search of truth. It is not a Whig lie, but oopiod from tho editorial columns of the Post of Thurs day: " Tho management of our internal improve niCDts require reform. We aro free to sny, that under no administration has it been pro- perly mannged. The public works have been used to till the pockets of the high officials. while the poor working man has been left to starve, without any remuneration for his la- bor. It is painful for us to refer to this matter. for the Canal Board is now in the hands of our party. But we cannot refrain from calline upon them to reform tho evil complained of aoove, ana we uopo that they will at once remove these oppressors of herd working opera tives. They areunwortby of public trust or station. Xliey would rob tho State with as little remorse asthey do tin laborers, and they suoutci De shipped at once. If this evil is not redressed by the Ccmmis sioners before tho October election, it will then rest with the people to express their indignation at the ballot box. The hard toil ing workman is not to be plundered to fill th pockets of lazy officials Their nominal wages are low enough, God knows ; but to niak them suffer a shave on that is cruel in th extreme. The laborers earn evory cent of the money promised to them, but from tho above statement it is evident mat they do not ge their pay when it ie earned, and that the lazy officials, of whom we havo before spoken, draw it, and speculate upon it at a heavy discount. The operatives on the Portage Railroad have published a statement in whioh they say that they work eighteen hours a day, and have to wait six and even twelve months for their pay In the above extract the Post also indicates other exactions to which they are subjected How very democratic ? A SENSIBLE LOCOFOCO. George Roberts, of the Boston "Times," though an incorrigible Locofoco of tho Young America stripe, is, withal, a shrewd and sen sible fellow, and not to be humbugged by the ridiculous pretensions of ctbor Locofoco jour. nals that the Whig party is dead. He says, in a late number of the Times : "There is an abundance of Whig material scattered over the country. A party which threw a million and a half of votes at the last President's election, needs only good leader. ship to be oonverted into a political engine of incalculable power. It is particularly so from the workings of our mode of electing a Presi dent. The Whig popers have already proven that a change of thirty thousand votes last November would nave elected (ienerol Scott The history of Mr. Polk's administration shcwB how uuwise it is to think that the Whigs are extinguished because badly beaten as shown by the fact that, at its close, in 18-18, the Demoorats were totally routed." GREAT MUSICAL FESTIVAL, Philadelphia, June 28. Our German popu lation turned out in largo numbers last night to reoeive the German Musical Societies who have come on to attend the annual festival. Thirty-two societies from Baltimore, New York, Boston, &c, arrived and weie escorted amid tho firing of cannon, &c, to Indepen dence square, where they were welcomed by the Mayor. Previous to reaching the Square, the visitors were greeted by a song of welcome sung by the Philadelphia societies, from the steps of the Custom Houue. A collation was afterwards served up in the grand saloon of the Museum, where the jubilee concert will take place to-morrow night.. . Proscription at Washixqton. The fol lowing figures will show how thorough has been the work of Proscription, ' for opinion's sake,' at Washington, thus lar, in the career of the Pierce Administration. If the work goes on as bravely the next three months, es it has done since the 4th of March last, Whigs in office, if General Pierce can help it, will be ' few and for between :' Appointments by the Federal Administration since Fourth of March.

" To the viotors belong the spoils " is, verily, the maxim of the Pierce and Marcy administration. The Hessian Ft?. Every paper, almost, we pick up, adds to the many instances already given, of the ravages of this little pest. Our readers may, therefore, be interested in the following account of the fly, taken from the abstract of the seventh census : " la 1775 thero was entailed upon this eountry an enduring calamity, in consequence of the introduction of the Hessian or the wheat fly, which was supposed to have been brought from Germany in some straw employed in the debarkation of Howe's troops on the west end of Long Island. From that point this insect gradually spread m various directions, at the rate of twenty or thirty uiilos a year, and the wheat of the entire regions east of the Alleghenies is now more or less infested with the larvae, as well as in large portions of the States bordering on the Ohio sod Mississippi, and on the great lakes ; and so great have been the ravages of these insects that the cultivation of grain has been abandoned." The Original Wasbingtonians. John H. W. Hawkins, in answer to the statement go-the rounds, (attributed to John B. Gougb,) that the leader of the Baltimore Washingtoni-sm movement is keeping a low grogshop in Baltimore, gives the present Btanding of the original six, as bollows : David Anderson, master blacksmith, doing well, and accumulating property ; John F. Hoss, master oorpenter, doing well ; James MoCurley, a master eoachmaker, doing well, also accumulating property ; Archibald Campbell, Bilverplater, doing an extensive business; William B. Mitchel, on his own farm, seven miles from Baltimore unfortunately does not keep his pledge ; George Steers, died in 1640v sober man kept his pledge to the last." JSyThere wss to have been a general meeting of the members of the order of Jesu-ites la Paris on the 21st inst., to elect a new General of their Society, in place of Father Roothan, lately deceased. GOVS. LOWE AND BIGLER. ' The York Republican in noticing the corres pondence between Gov. Lowe, of Maryland and Gov. Bigler, of I'enn., says with great force and point . " The coolness with which Gov. Lowe rolu ses to surrender the fugitives from justice, became a Chester County Jury are not to be trusted, and also beoause Judges Bell and Campbell, counsel for this State, agreed that the kidnappers should not bo punished if the Baltimore County Court would let the stolen girl go free, is exceedingly refreshing. Nor is the energy with whioh Gov. Bigler pitcher into his locofoco brother less delightful. He goes it with a perfect ruth, and uususnioioiiB. simple minded people ' Israelites in whom there is no guile ' will no doubt really boliovo uio .excellency io do earnest. He upon the chance to display as a friend of freedom and the oppressed with a ravening appetite j and bavins law. reason, iustine. common sense. the constitution, judicial authority, cxeoutivo precedent, and the principles of humanity, all on bis side, he bIiows off, with the aid of ins Attorney General to stuff him from tho Books of Reports, to tho most dcoided advantage. You would really believe that he was ready to swallow Gov. Lowe whole, and to send Judgo Bell and the Ex-Attorney General, now Postmaster General, Campbell, forthwith to the Penitentiary, to punish thorn for com pounding a felony 1' But tho whole thing is a solemn farce, and the entire matter a ' fore gone conclusion 1 between tho parties before ever this correspondence saw tho light. It is "a mere tub thrown to the whale' of puotio sentiment in Pennsylvania to conciliate favcr for Gov. Bigler, and to 'gull the simplcB, who can .be led to believe that our Executive's seriousness is real, and bis letter a true thing. It is only intended to enable his friends to vapor and boast of his noble vindication of the honor of the State and devotion to the cause of impartial justice and human freedom, wnen tie comes betore toe people sgam as a candidate. Yet it was well understood that Gov. Lowe would not surrender the kidnappers lie lias not surrendered them, and don t in tend to do so. Gov. Bigler may flourish cn paper, ana mat is all.' INDEBTEDNESS TO EUROPE. The New York Times has published a table giving the amount of tho indebtedness of this oountry to Europe, in the way of the IT. S., State, City and Railway Stocks, owned by persons in foreign countries and it amounts to the Btartling sum of Three Hundred and Eleven Millions Five Hundred Thousand Dollars .' The nterest alone on this vast sura, which we have regularly to forward to ourcreditors in Europe, is Eighteen Millions Six Hundred and Ninety Thousand Dollars! This is an unfortunate state of things, indeed and should excito the earnest consideration of our legislators, Ta-tng it in connection with tho fact which was stated last week, that our imports of foreign goods were foorfully on the increase over our exports, and swelling the large balance of trade against us to an enormous amount it is high time that the people were looking into the matter, before the crisis arrives, whioh must inevitably take place. LATER FROM EUROPE. The steamship Baltic arrived at New York on Sunday evening, with four days later advices from Europe. The news is only important in connection with the Turkish question The Earl of Clarendon, in a speech in the English Parliament, officially announced that the English and French fleets had been or dered to the Dardanelles, in the event of a rupture between Turkey and Russia. Tho Emperor of Russia has addressed a note to the different European powers, declaring that is not his intention to do anything to disturb the peace of Europe. He wants all matters settled peaceably. The Turkish government, owever, are preparing for a defence against Russia in good earnest. The Porto has or dered twenty-seven vessels of war to the Black Sea fully equipped, and called out two hundred thousand militia for organisation as regular troops. The aspect of affairs promise speedy settlement without recourse to war LATE FROM THE PACIFIC. The steamship Northern Light, from San Juan, with California dateB to the 1st inst,, reaohed New York on Friday. Sho brought 400 passengers who have a large amount of gold in hand, and reports the steamship Call. fornia sis having left San Frsnoisco on the 1st inst., with $2,283,000 in gold on her manifest. The Northern Light reports that the ship Jamestown, at San Francisco from China, brought dates from that Empire to the 6th of April, from which we learn that the rebels were driven from the, .walls of Nankin with immense slaughter. From China. By way of California, we have news from China later than that among our for eign news, but it is not considered re liable. It is to the effect that tho revolutionists had been repulsed before the city of Nanking, with the slaughter of many thousands their troops; and that the rebellion is likely to be soon put down. We shall proba bly hear again in a few days. Riot in New York. A very serious riot occurred in New York on Wednesday evening, growing out of the discovery of some human bones and portions of a human body in the cellar of a drug store. In a very few moments an excited crowd of about 8000 persons assembled, who broke into the interior of the houeo and store, destroying everything that come in their way. The inmates, Dr. Wheeler and family, fortunately escaped, or their lives would have been sacrificed to tho popular fury. The secret of the difficulty was, that several medical students who boarded with the Doctor, had a 'case' or two for anatomical purposes, and were not sufficiently careful in disposing of the bones, &c, hence the excite ment and disturbance. Swallowed a Pin. The Wilmington Re publican states that a Miss Craig, of Delaware oity, swallowed a pin some two or three months ago, which lodged in her throat, so as to destroy the power of speech. Physicians could afford her no relief, and it was feared it would result fatally to her. A few days ago, however, she visited Sr. Worrell's drug store, and being fatigued, the clerk tendered her a glnss water; while in the act of drinking she trangled and throw np the pin. It was traight when she placed it in her mouth, but eame out bent into a half circle at the point, and much corroded. Serious Effsct or tub Heat. In Philadelphia, on Tuesday, a young man named John Harrison foil dead in Third street, from the effects of the beat ; a laborer, name unknown, also died from the same cause in Fourth street; a colored woman died immediately after drinking a gliBS of cold water ; James Duffy, a carpenter, was taken home insensible, in con sequence nf drinking cold water while overheated ; anothe man was sun struck and had to be conveyed home ; and James Hagerty, a laborer, died from being sun struck.

Our community lis been warmly interested for a week past witt the examinations of the several Publ o Sehdds of the borough. The examinations were public and most of them have attracted larss audiences, composed of parents and other fiends of education. The examination of th Female High School, the last and most interesting of the scries, took place this morning in tho presence of a considerable number of attentive and gratified spectators. The Ixamination will bo followed by a joint exhibitbn by the pupils of the Male and Feraalo High Schools, in Education Hall, to-morrow oveninr. The exf roises will consist of Declamation, ! Compositions, &o , interspersed with vooil and instrumental masic. The public is inviied to attend. The examinations generally, we lenrn, have been very crcditible to both Teachers and pupils. A details! and discriminating report of them Tv ill probably be prepared by the Committee of Viators, which it will give us plcasuro to publish. Our Schools are conducted upon a well-devised system, the excellence of which is shown in the gratifying success which has attended its operations. The Directors, several ol whom have occupied their stations sioce the commencement of the Common School system in the State, are no less entitled to the public praise for their efficiency than for their disinterested devotion- to the welfare of the rising generation. Ono thing, however, has been strangely overlooked by Directors and Teachers, to which we cannot refrain from calling attention it ia th bad order 1n which the grounds adjoining many of the school houses (particularly the new ones)' are suffered to remain. That they should bo left destitute of verdure, shrubbery end flowers seems to us out of all charaoter. It strikes us that a school house, of all places, should have these beautiful surroundings, so pure and elevating in their influences, end that their cultivation should be made a subject of interest with the children. Carlisle Sulphur Springs. This celebrated and fashionable watering plaoe, we learn, has just been onened for the season with unusual life and animation. These Springs are situate about four miles north of Carlisle, in a beautiful, healthy, and most picturesque country, and are among the most pleasant and delightful summer resorts in the State. The water, which is highly impregj . nated with sulphur, oon tains many medicinal qualities, and has been recommended to invalids by the most experienced physioians, The buildings, which have been within a year or two much improved and enlarge'd, are handsome, commodious and convenient, and every thing connected with the Springs is in the most perfect order. From our knowledge of the gentlemanly proprietors, Messrs Norton & Owen, who are energetic and enterprising men, we have no doubt visitors will find at the Carlisle Sulphur Springs as pleasant and desirable a summer retort ds they could wish. Volunteer, j JgyTho Pacific Railroad Surveys are fairly under way. Four surveying parties have been organized to examine different routes. Three of themhave already started, and the fourth soon will. Major Stephens, the new Governor of Washington Territory, is examining the Northern line, starting from Fond du Lao and running through Minnesota. Capt. Gunnison and his party met at St. Louis on the 7th, to take the Central Route from there to dan Francisco. Lieut. Whipple and his acrps start from Fort Smith, and probably will meet Capt. Gunnison at Walker's Pass through the Sierra Nevada. And the other survey, tmder command of Lieut. Wilkinson, is to begin at the other end of the line, stnrting from San Francisco anil ohoosilig a route to Walker's Pass. If the three latter parties succeed in : meeting there, they will be able to coi spare notes and perhaps come to a satisfactory conclusion. i Census or Cautonbnia. The total population of the State, at the time the census was taken, amounted to 204,435 souls of which Ban Francisco City and County had 30,151. The number of acres of land in cultivation was 110,748, the annual produce of which was 2, 973,734 bushels of Barley, 100,497 of Oats, 271,703 of Wheat, 1, 393,170 of Potatoes and 62,532 of Corn. There were 108 Quartz Mills, and the amount of capital invested was as fol- laws, vis : Quartz Mining, $5,871,405 ; Placer Mining, $4,174.419 other Mining operations, $3,851,623 ; end for other purposes $41,061, 933."

The New York Freeman's Journal states that Monslgnor Bcdiul, Archbishop of Thobei, former Commissary Extraordinary of ILo Pontlflclnl'Govcrn-ment to the Legations, lias left lluino as special Envoy of His llulinesa to the United States, lie is charged by tho ljoly Father to pny a visit to the Government nt Wuthington, and also to hold interviews with tho different Prelates of tho Church In the United States, mid to acquire the most exuot information, rasptct-ing the interests and condition of the Catholic ohurch in this country. Sudden Phatii from Hkat. It u estimated that since Saturday week, there havo boen 00 deaths in Now York from the excessivo heat of the weather. Of 29 cases of coup de soliel reported at the hospital on Wednesday 21 proved fatal. In Philadelphia, on Thursday, Wm. Freeman, Andrew l'homns, Rachel Kelly, Simon Baird,, Michael Groogan, Ellen Duye, and several others, died from the effects of the heat. Officer Mervine, of tho police, was taken homo insensible, but will probably recover. A SraN. Tho Harrisburg Keystone, one Of the leading Democratic papers of Pennsylvania, copies nn article from the New York Herald, in which fault is found with General Pierce for many of his recent appointments. The article concludes with this significant language.- " but it is, perhnps, enough to recommend, (aside from all pcrsoual considerations in connection with this Now Hampshire move, ment,) a careful study of tho scopo and drift of Mr. Burke's resolution, by the President and his Cabinet. The flatteries of sycophants and courtiers moy be ogrecable, but they are delusive. The timoly warnings of independent men cannot be with equal safety disregarded. Will there be war !" The Sib Treasury Overboard. The Secretary of the Treasury, after having floundered for three months through the impracticable meshes of a literal construction of the Sub Treasury law, and received the praises of th Democratic party for his wonderful firmness, and his superiority to his Whig predecessors, has abandoned his virtuous resolution, and gone back to the plain, undemocratic, common sense construction which all his predecessors have been obliged to give to the act. It seems to us that a law so impracticable that even its own friends confess their inability to enforce it, might as well be repealed. Thb Wheat Harvest. The Wheat harvest is actively progressing in' Maryland, Virginia, and parts of Pennsylvania. The statements that were made some weeks since of tho depredation of the fly and joint-worm, are now generally admitted to have been exaggerated, and the general tone of tho country press war- rants the expectation that, with tho exception of some particular localities, the crop will be a full one. HAnmsBEBa Cotton Factouv. Tho Harrisburg Union, in speaking of tho affairs of their cotton Company, says, that whilst it is true no money has been made for tho stockholders, the salutary effect of the improve ment upon tho business of tbc town, has been most marked and decided. The mill, machinery and grounds of this Company cost $216, 9G5 82. Although not running full last year, it consumed 919,047 pounds of ootton, and produced 2,416,592 yards of cloth, which, with the waste, sold for $181,211 24. Strike among) hhe Hatmakeks. Our far mers have found great difficulty this year in hiring hands to help them gather in the hay.

Bgj!&.The reported Negro Insurrection in New Orleons, the Picayune says, originated in the fancies of a crazy negro. From the fuss whicd was made over it in the newspapers of that city, it evidently had excited there some alarm. Locomotive Explosion On Thursday the 10th inst., while a locomotive on the Erie Rail road, near Rochester, N. Y., was engaged in pushing a train up a grade, the boiler exploded, and killed eleven persons, besides woun ding several others. Nearly all those killed were laborers on the road. Four Lecoed Shanghai. Notwithstanding the many fine things that have been soid about the Shanghais, all it appears has not been chronicled of them. Reuben Parry, of By-berry, Bucks county, has a Shanghai chicken that has four legs ; the tira.' (or quadruped,) uses the fore legs for locomotion, reserving the hind ones, like any other chicken of genteel breeding would do, for future exigencies. JBSgTho State Treasurer, as authorized by the last Legislature, has issued a notice that proposals will bo received at the Treasury Department to the second Thursday in August, for a loon to the Commonwealth at 5 per cent, free from taxation, of one million of dollars, to be applied to the poyment of so much of the Stato debt as may fall due this year or next. tS-A. thunder etorra visited Claytown, Bucks county, Pn., on Friday last, which did much damage.
