X p .WB0NK8DAT, JUNE 17 1868. H , ' THE BREADSTUFF! TEASE. J The decline in the price of breadstuffs at this season is ! something that might have been expected from the generally favorable accounts of the crops in all parts of the world. In both England and America the tendency is downward " in nearly all grades of flour, with a very limited demand. , In both countries the trade is chiefly confined to local and im mediate wants, with a Dressure to sell on the part of holder. This tendency has seriously affected values, the decline on wheat in England during the week end' ing May 80th being 7 shillings sterling in London, , and 9s. in Liverpool. This decline is partly accounted for by the farmers selling their reserved stock under the influence ot the prospects of large sunnlies from the arrow - ins? crops. Large supplies have also reached England from abroad. Recent returns show 247 grain vessels en - route to England, against 178 at the same time last year. This is exclusive of the supplies by steamer which ,are now employed in the grain trade with the Black Sea and the Russian possessions. The result is that the maximum of prices has been reached in England, and quotations are lower; with indications of a still greater decline as the season advances. As the same influence are in operation on both sides of the Atlautie, the American markets present nearly the same features as the Euglish. The almost instantaneous transmission of quotations on either side by the cable causes tho markets to respond to each other almost immediately, and prevents any marked discrepancies on this side the Atlantic; however there is an indisposition on the part of holders to accede to the terms of buyers; who are holding off for a reduction. New Southern flour begins to come forward in small lots. The harvest in the Gulf States has commenced, and the indications are most favorable. At St" Louis, Chicago, Boston, New Orleans and other markets supplies of new Southern flour have been received. The harvest will soon extend northward from the Gulf line. A shade of anxiety has been manifested respecting the effects of the recent rold rain storms on the crops. ' The future of the crops depends so entirely on the weather that conjecture is useless. The crops are now in a condition M'hen unseasonably cold and wet weather must tell very injuriously. In some of the "Western States the wheat has been forced prematurely and has lodged. But this is probably exceptional. From the increased breadth of wheat sown in every State, and from the advanced condition of the crops, we are warranted in anticipating a wheat harvest equal at least to the most prosperous year, and probably considerably in excess. Corn will probably be late and deficient. The effects of favorable harvest in the new and new world upon the American trade is a matter of no slight interest. With the prospects of a supply largely in excess of the home demaud the questiouof . the disposition of the surplu " becomes important, ' England is the chief grain purchasing country in the world, and until within a recent period that country was the principal purchaser of our breadstuff's. We could always calculate upon disposing of all our surplus )if adslufls to that country. For several years previous to 1802 the United fctate supplied about two - thirds of all the breadstuffs imported by Gi - eat Britain. In 1803 the proportion of American breadstuff was still larger. At AVokk. The House on Monday passed the following resolution: ' Hawked, That in the judgment of the House it will inflict a serious loss in the national revenues to delay the revision of the taxes on distilled spirits and tobacco until theeanie can be accomplished by a general revision of the entire revenue system, and the Committee of Ways and Means is hereby instructed to report without delay separate bill for there vision of the taxes on tho manufacture and sale of distilled spirits and tobacco. The resolution passed by the decisive vote of seventy - nine yens to sixty nays. Had Major Getz, our representative, been in his seat the Whisky King would have counled sixty - one nays. During the discussion Mr, Butler, in answer to one of tho members, said; "If this bill is kept where it is, no bill touching whisky and tobacco can be passed. ", Wo sjay here uselessly, object - tessly, and for no purpose, and we yield every other interest to put along a bill which every one knows cannot be passed. Are we ready to do that? When gentlemen threaten me with responsibility for doing this, I say I am willing, nay, desirous to take the responsibility, and so fs every one who votes with me. We take it because we tliiijk this is a useless experiment, and we want to go to something practicable. We on this side of the House, on this question have no pride of opinion ;no love of offspring; no mutual "you scratch my back aud J'll (tickle your elbow" contrivance. We stand directly on the question of practical legislation. We want to uast something that we can pass not to spend time on something we cannot pass. It is on that pro opo - tliis sition that we stand in support or resolution." Dangerous Counterkeitm. Counterfeits $100 National hank notes are in circulation. They are exceedingly well executed, and will deceive the majority of persons In whose hands they full, The engraving is very good,and the printing as perfect as it could be done. These notes re on the Central National Bank of New Vork, and on the Ohio National Bank of Cincinnati. Twenty dollar bills altered from flvei on the First National Bank of Boston arc also in circulation, A Sinotjlab Encounter. At Pcslh, Hungary, the Count d'Andrassy gave a ball a fortnight ago, at which the Emperor Francis Joseph was present. Among tho distingulscd guests were Fulszky utid Klapka.aud at least a doxen Hungarians whoso death warranto were signed by the Emperor a fW years ago. In 184ft the Emperor himself was hanged in cf by itlut patriots who followed these leaders. The burial or the hatchet, however, was complete. The Hungarians forgot their enmity, Francis Joseph dismissed his lib Jeeling towards his reljels,and everything - was .comfortable. The millenlum approaches in Austria and Hungary. PbJladefe pma Diiueun oi Monday evening sajs: f "The Grand Jury of the United States District Court, in their recent presentment, added the weight of their testimony to the almost universal opinion that the high tax on whisky is a prolific source of misery ana corruption, wnuo it utterly fails in its object of yielding an adequate revenue to the Government. The presentment very truly and pithily says "The high tax does not diminish the consumption in drinking. Fraudulent distillation does not cheapen it to consu mers for drinking purposes,neither in the alcoholic form for the arts or artisans,for medicinal purposes, compounds, tinctures, lotions, &c; neither for cosmetics and the various preparations of cologne water, the importation of which,from the high price of alcohol, is vastly increased. These uses last enumerated probably consume as much whisky as is drunk. . Tho money, it is believed, made bv this fraudulent distillation goes into the pockets of these trafflcers instead of the Government." There is no subject before Congress that is more pressing than tho tax on distilled spirits,and with all honest men in the country who ;are familiar with the practical workings of the law. in favor ofa reform that is only opposed by the iniquitious Whisky Ring, there should be no hesitation at effecting such legislation as will break up this terrible source of corruption." ' ; We of Berks county, where it is sup posed tho Ring has full sway, agree with the Bulletin, and demand from Congress a reduction in price so as to protect those of our distillers who desire to be honest. BllOWNLOW ON THE PRESIDENT AND the Tenessee Democracy. Gov. Brownlow, of Tennessee, has been giving las views to the public through the irre sponsible medinm of "a talk with a correspondent." The correspondent merely pumped, but Brownlow talked with his old freedom, so that it was not very hard work to get at his "views." He spoke of Andrew Johnson, with the same fanaticism, partisan bitterness and hate which have characterized him heretofore. After declaring that Mr. Johnson "would never willingly live out of office," he said of him in this connec tion: ; , "His services to the rebel aristocracy since he became President have fully squared off their old accounts against him, and he will henceforth be their fa vorite. He is a dangerous man." .., Of the Tennessee democracy Gov. Brownlow also charitably says: "Andy Johnson's reeeni triumph over the loyal sentiment of the country has inspired them with hopes of political supremacy, and roused them to new and unwholesome activity, iney are now seriously contemplating a movement for the overthrow of the State government. We have many troubles ahead, and much of our work is to be done over again. At present they intend calling a State convention for framing a new constitution, but I will summon the legislature in extra session before the day appointed for their pretended consti tutional convention to meet, and l will call out the loyal militia; and we will see who will hold possession of the capi - tol!" , r. Antiquity of Sun Dials. The Chi nese, who seem to have been foremost in scientific researches, were the first to at tempt to measure time. According to their historical books, the Emperor Font who lived 2,952 years before the commencement of our era, studied the celestial bodies with great attention. Eleven centuries before Jesus Christ, a Chinese philosopher, Chcu - Kong, is said to have made some observations of stars, but this assertion is unsupported by reliable evidence, and Dclamore has cast serious doubts upon it. The idea of dividing the day into equal parts by means of the suns diurnal motion, is very ancient, and the first contrivance of the kind probably consisted of sticking a spear into a plane surface. Archaeologists are of the opinion that the obelisks of the Egyptains were nothing more than immense gno - niocs. Pliny informs us that the first who ever erected any was a King of Palmyra, ow Balbeck, of the name of Mitre, ' Diogoues Laerllus attributes the invention of sun - dials to Anaximander, B. C. 010, but it is certain the gnomon was shown before that period. Bcrosis or Bcrlisusha, a Chalone philosopher (B. C. 445), constructed one which he called a "hemicycle." Next in order follows Aristarchus, of Samos, (B. C. 201), who iuvented another, consisting of a hemisphere surmounted by a disc. The lower extremity of a vertical pin was placed in the centre ofa spheric segment; ai.d a circular arc. divided into two several parts, marked the angle made by the solar rays and the perpendicular. Fifty years later, Eratosthenes used this instrument, cnWvd'scapee, tQ calculate the earth's diameter. During the first Punic war, Marcus Valerous Mcssala found a gnomon at Catania. Thinking it would do quite as well at Rome as there, he sent it to the capital,, and was rather disappointed at learning that it would not apswer, Twelve years 1m - fore our era, Marcus Manius constructed a sun - dial in the Campuj Maritus.' It consisted of an obelisk, surmounted by a gilt sphere, which marked tho hours by menus of sliadows. An Entire Congregation Poisoned at a Lpvs Feast, A. letter to the Chicago Tribune, dated at Napervlllc, 111., June 10th, sajs: "Never before in the history of Najx;r - ville was such an excitement created as on last Sunday evening, when it was reported that the entire congregation of the Dunkard Church, who were celebrating a love feast, had been poisoned by eating meat prepared in a copper kettle and allowed to remain there until the metal had become oxydized. Nearly every one in the village had a friend cr a relative in attendance, and consequently there was a general rush for the church in question. Upon entering the building the scene which met their gaze verified the reports In different portions of the church were the sufferers, some sitting up, others lying down, the latter twisting themselves into all sorts of positions, rolling around the floor, and all apparently Buffering the most excrutiating pain. "Medical assistance was at once summoned, but, as It was very limited, considerable time elapsed before all could be attended to. The stomach pump wns brought into requisition, end those who gave evidence or suffering the most were considerably relieved by its use, It was found upon actual count tnat no less than 130 were more or less aflected, the major portion, however,but slightly,thcy having partake i) of but a small quantity tf tho food. About to only were found to be ill a dangerous condition. These were removed to their homes, and eycry attention paid thcm.aud before morning many of thnn were out of danger. Those who were but slightly afleoted,with some little assistance, got home, ami in a short time were entirely recovered, "It seems that the members were cel. cbratlng a love feast On Saturday Jast a quantity of meat was cooked in a coi - per kettle. About one - half of it was eaten that day, and the remainder allowed to remain in the kettle until Sunday, on account of there being no other plate to keep it Some of the sufferers did not recover for two or three days, but now all are pronounced out of danger." The Whisky Tax. The A Strange and Melancholy In - ciDENT.i - It wj". be remembered by ma - uy oi our readers now a scnooner, com - i tided, by Captain Alexander James, left East river, in Mathews county, on the 7th of December last, with a cargo of corn,' bound for Baltimore, and in a gale, on the 9th of the same month, was lost; with all hands on board. She went down off Windmill Point, about nine miles dis tant from tho home of Cant. James.VUn - til Friday of last week, nothing to"" recall the dead and lost ever had been found, when, strange to say, the body of Capt. James, and that of one of his crew named Banks,' :weje washed ashore, on G wynn's Point, at a distance of not quite two miles from the drowned captain's home, Both bodies are in a good state of preservation, the features - particularly being not disfigured, s Their clothes were also well pre served, and the watch and spectacles of Capt. James were found on his person, When leaving home om his voyage to death, he was known to have had on his person about $800 in money. When the body was discovered, the pocket in which he had usually carried his money was found to be cut away, and the money gone. Norfolk Journal ; r' v , " , Severe Sentence. By a court - mar tial at Richmond, private James Wilson, company F, eleventh United States in fantry, charged with desertion, was found guil ty, and sentenced to make good the time lost by desertion and the expenses due the United States for his apprehen. sion; then to forfeit all pay and allowan ces which are or may become ; due him, excepting the just dues of his laundress, to be confined at hard labor, ' in ' charge of the guard, with a twelve - pound ball attached to his left leg by a chain four feet long, during the balance of his term of service; then to have his head shaved, to be indelibly marked on the left hip with the letter "D," one and a half inches long, and to be drummed out of the' service. The court recommended the poor fellow to the mercy of the general commanding, and the sentence was commuted by him to loss of pay and confinement for six months. , , ., . ,, ...

Labor versus Hypochondria. We should have fewer disorders of the mind if we could acquire more power of volition, and endeavor by our energy to disperse the clouds which occasionally arise within our own horizon ;if we resolutely tore the first threads of the net which gloom and ill - humor may cast around us, and make an effort to drive away the melancholy images of a morbid imagination by incessant occupation. How bcpefiuial it would be tQ mankind if this truth were universally acknowledged and acted upon, via: that our state of health, mental as well as bodily, principally depends upon ourselves. Death of a ' Venerable Colored Man, An ancient colored man, named James Powell, who was well known tq the citizens of Carlisle, Pa., apd to the numcrons students of Dickinson College ami the United States army officers at the barracks for tho last half century, died last week. He was a native of Baltimore county, Md., and . was known by the various names of "Porapey Jim," "Banty Jim," and Mr. James Bowel, the latter being his "Sunday - go - to - meeting" cognomen, of which he was not a little proud. Mexico. This unfortunate country is likely to be soon again full of commotion and bloodshed. The Ortega and Negre - te conspirators seem to bo gathering strength, while Santa Anna's filibusters arc in considerable force on the Rio Grande, ready to cross and strike at a signal from their friends. The peace of Mexico was by no means assured by tho murder of Maximilian. Greeley and England. One hun - coples of Mr. Horace Greeley's "nistory of the American Conflict" have been placed in the hands ofa London bookseller by the author, for distribution among tho most frcqnented public libraries of Great Britain and Ireland.

On the 24th,two other mail carriers were sent in the same direction.) They had nearly reached the half - way station, where, exchanging mails, they usually started to return, when some 30 Indians rushed upon them from a ravine. During the melee that ensued, the pack mule Dearing the mail orone away, anu wnue the carriers were taken as prisoners to an adjacent camp, a party started in pursuit of the mule. The men were robbed of everything horses, guns and most of their clothing. ihe cmct of the party, one "Sitting Bull," was the grim host of the unfortu nate mail carriers,one of whom was Joseph Martin,8hivering with cold trom the forcible removal of hat, coat and pants, begged the chief to lend him some additional clothing. "Sitting Bull" gave him a coat, which Martin recognized as belonging to Chas. McDonald.' It had the marks of five bullets and two Indian ar rows, ana tne Indians boasted; that both McDonald and Hamlin had been killed the week before. It was now an hour or more after dart and soon the Indians returned with the fugitive pack mule and the mail, and during the confusion and . excitement, the two men escaped from the camp and concealed themselves in a willow thicket near an adjoining stream. There was a search for thorn, but they were not discovered, and toward morning they stole off, and by walking day and night reached Fort Stevenson in safety.
