T.I'HELPS. ftTThe editor was, on la-.t Monday week, tidied to Philadelphia on business connected with the office of Adjutant General, and >/• not having suliicieiit force were unable to get out aie regular issue. VV e will make it all right in the end. IHeetiug of 4'oMgrcss. Congress met on Monday last. In conse quence of putting our paper to press early in the week, we are unable to give the result ot its deliber ations. The impression on Saturday was, that the Northern fusion would come together in the organi zation of the House, and that they would elect their officers. All branches of the Northern opposition to the Democratic party will be brought together, and in favor of Mr. HUSKY M. FCI.LEU, of Pennsylvania' for Speaker, and \VII.I.IAM CI LLOM, Anti-Nebraska Whig, from Tennessee, for Clerk. A compromise has been effected, so as to withdraw the other candi dates for Clerk in favor of Cullorn. We shall be a- hle in our next issue probably, to tell v. ho are the successful candidates. Should the House organize this week, we will take the earliest opportunity to lay the President's Message before our readers. reference to our advertising columns it will be seen that Mr. SIANG oilers lor sale the pro perty of the late Thomas Keti'ee. This property is pleasantly located being in the centre ol the town, and is well adapted for two lamilies. [TF"The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania lieculei! ut Pittsburg recently, tliat the Sunday Liquor law of IHTII was repealed by the law of IS.VS. The law of IS-'il is, according to the Supreme Court, a local one, that of 1855 a general one. THE LUII OK LAW IN LANCASTER. —The Grand Jury Lave ignored ail the bills against the tavern keepers returned from the city and county, and in several ca ses put the costs upon the prosecutors; although in many instances there was abundant evidence to sub stantiate the charges made against them, viz: the violation oi the Liquor Law. Poor Directors met on Thursday last ami made the following appointments. Physician —Dr. B. F. HAUKY—Treasurer—Geo. W. BLYMIKE —Clerk—Tnos. R. GETTYS, Jr. Mr. Buchanan and Ihc London Times. The following is a copy of the contradiction for warded by Mr. BUCHANAN, the American Minister at London, to the editors of the London Time*, in refutation to the article which appeared in that paper charging him with having made certain assurances to the members of the British ministry on the subject of war with Russia, and especially in relation to the British enlistments in this country for the Crimea, its tnild and temperate tone contrasts admirably with the violent and vituperative character of the charges of the Time-*; and yet, notwithstanding it was forwarded to the editors of that journal nearly a month ago, they had refused to make any correction up to the period of the departure ol the steamer Can ada. We are not disposed to comment at length up on such an exhibition as this. The act of attributing to the American minister expressions infamously false, followed up by stubborn declension to publish his calm and respectful contradiction, proves a fore gone determination ol misrepresentation which would be unworthy of the most irresponsible journal.— Such conduct speaks for itself: "The American minister presents his compliments to the editors of the Tim- *, and assures them that they have been 'misinformed' with respect to the ex pressions ami conduct attributed to him in the len ding article of this morning. Always mindful of the neutrality of his government, which he fully ap proves, it was with deep regret he learned, as he first did from Washington, that attempts were made in the United States to recruit soldiers for the British army; because he felt confident that these attempts would tend to weaken the friendly relations between the two countries which it has been his ardent de sire, ever since his arrival in Kugland, to cherish and promote. "The American minister can, of course, enter in to no discussion in the public journals of questions between the two governments, or state what is or what is not contained in any correspondence which may have arisen out of these questions; but he lias felt it due buth to the Time* and himself to make tins piompt correction.

Lake's majority over Singleton, (Dem.) in the Vicks hurg district, is about 'JOO. The Democrats have four Congressmen anil the Legislature, thus securing their I'. S. Senator. TOE 'FRITH ADMITTED. It will be remembered that immediately after the enactment of the bloody scenes which char acterized the Louisville election, the Know- Nothing ]>ajßTs everywhere attempted to fasten the resjKjnsibility of these sanguinary outrages uion the Democratic party and its friends. Pi ous editors labored ardently to convince the public that Know-Nothingism was not to blame lor these outrages—that the supporters of that party were beyond censure—that Democracy, and Democracy alone, was to shoulder the aw iu! responsibility. Conscious of its innocence, the organs ol the Democratic party remained calm, and quietly awaited fur time to clear the record. The National Intelligencer, a paper which stands confessedly at the head of the op position to Democracy in the Union, thus speaks on thi9sul>ject. We ask the candid of all par ties to read . "After a careful examination of all that we have seen bearing on the pomt, after an unpre judiced study of the articles that have appeared on the subject in the Louisville Journals, we believe that the blood of the slain is on the hands of the Know-Nothings. The proofs are many, and convincing." A Moii ix LONDON APPEASED UY Mr.. BU CHANAN.—A Washington letter says— "Last night the President received a tele graphic dispatch from some person in New A otk relating to a rumor or statement brought by lassetigers in the Pacific, to the effect that a crowd or mob, very much excited bv the rep resentation that the Ministry designed to go to war with the United States, assembled around I. >rd house, in a threatening and i ieatfni :na::- .. a.tJ t'.:it Mr. Buchanan ap peareci before tin-in and gave them satisfactory assurances that there was no danger of the oc currence of a war between the two countries, and that so far from having demanded his pass ports, in consequence of any difficulty, thecor resi>omlence between him and the Government had been of a very amicable nature. How much truth there may be in this dispatch 1 can not undertake to judge; but it appears that the Times' article, it it conld raise a mob, could not much aiFect United States securities on the stock exchange. ORE WEEK LATER FROiTI EUROPE- Arrival of the Atlantic. NEW YORK, .Nov. 30. The steamship Atlantic, from Liverpool, with dates to Saturday, the 17tfi inst., arrived at her wharf this evening at !) o'clock. The Atlantic left Liverpool at 4 o'clock, P. M., on the 17th, ami having 175 passetigeis. — She experienced heavy westerly gales lor the last ten days. The Atlantic arrived otf Liverpool on the 11th insV, and the St. Louis tile same day at Southampton. The War# The latest despatch from the seat of war re port olficially Iroin Lord Stratford Kedclitfe, a victory gained on the fifth of November, by Omar, Pasha, over a force often thousand Rus sians, mostly Georgian malitia, at the river In goar, which Omar Pasha with the Turks 20,- I 000 strong crossed four diiferent points, taking ' bO prisoneis, three guns, and causing a loss ot four hundred killed and wounded. The Tuik j ish loss is 300. A private despatch which evidently refers to j the same encounter, say the Turks crossed the river Anakava and stormed the Russian re : doubts, after which they pushed forward to- I wards Kulcio. Kars was still beseiged, but appearances in i dicated that the Russians will retire to Tiflis. | There is nothing new from the Crimea.— i Roth armies are wholly occupied in hutting , purposes for the winter. Only a lew ships remain in the Dniejwr.—• The bulk of the fleet is returning to Constanti nople. A desultary lire is kept up between the North | and South side of Sebastopol, and the fortifica tions of both sides are being augmented. The latest dates by letter are to the 3d of No vember. The weather continues very tine. The latest despatch from GortschakofF, dated i November stii, says there is nothing new in the | Crimea. The enemy continue to occupy the : valley of Baidar, where they have two divis ions. A Russian cadet who had deserted, reported ! that GortschakofF bad determined to hazard an ! attack upon the Allies, who were in conse j cjnence, every night rein lot ring their advanced posts, ami supporting them with field artillery. Count Zamerski has been apjminted to laise and command a division of Cossacks and Poles tor the British service. RUMORS OF PEACE. —Rumors of peace are , extremely prevalent, but vague. Diplomacy is i active, especially at Stockholm, Vienna and j BrilSSels. THE WAR IN THE CRlMEA —second despatch, j—A St. Petersburg despatch says, the Einpe -1 ror left NicolaefF on the 7th of November, for ; the Crimea, to thank in person, Gortschakofi's ! army. He returned via Moscow to St. Peters- I burg. Up to the 12th November, the Allies had j not undertaken anything in the Crimea. The exportation of breadstufls had been pro hibited in all the Turkish ports, and importa- I tions allowed duty free. A portion of the French fleet had arrived in i Biscos Bay. A private despatch says Russia has absolute ly prohibited the export of breadstuifs. Sweden is expected to follow iier example. Thn Allied fleets at the mouth of the Rug | and Dneiper had been reduced twenty-eight ; vessels. FRANCE. —The formal closing of the Paris exhibition, and the distribution by the Emperor of the decorations and medals adjudged, took place on the 15th. The list of American pre ! tr.iums has not been received. The Emperor I made a brief address, extolling the benefits of i the exhibition. In allusion to the war he ! said : "•You desire, as I do, a speedy and desirable j peace : but this peace, to be durable, must dis ' tinctlv realize the objects for which the war j was undertaken. Europe must declare who is j right and who is wrong, and a final victory be I achieved bv public opinion. Hi-called on foreign countries desiring peace, ! to pronounce for or against the Allies, and ar gued that without peace or rest the foregoing of these arms was necessary to carry out the ob ] jects of the Alliance. Pardon ol'!sr SScaie.. Dr. Stephen T. Beate was on Thursday re leased from his confinement in Moyamensing i Prison. Gov. Pollock signed the pardon on i Wednesday, and the same evening the Chief | Clerk in the office of the Secretary of the Com monwealth, started to the city with the docu ; meiit. Gov. Pollock, in the instrument exten j uing executive clemency to Dr: Beale, sets ! fortii the reasons which had induced him to j grant the pardon- He had received communications from about OIK' liuiidml and forty dentists and twenty-threw physicians, of the city, stating their belief that testimony as to matters transpiring under the influence of ether is unsafe and unreliable: from a number of other physicians named, that they believe hi/n innocent; from a large number of the bar, and citizens of various States, inclu ding the names of Governors, Attorneys-Gener al, M.C., that they believe he was convicted on insufficient testimony ; from a number of cler gyman, that they believe him innocent ; from the Mayor of Philadelphia, and sixty members of the Philadelphia City Councils; from mem bers of the Legislature, judges of the Supreme Court, editors of Philadelphia newspapers, and five thousand other citizens of Pennsylvania and of New York, with five of the jury on the trial, all asking for his pardon. Alter enumerating all these facts, the Governor save : And whereas the Hoard of Inspectors of the said Philadelphia County Prison, (as appears by their communication on tile in the othce of the Secretary of the Commonwealth,) have unani mously recommended th<- pardon of the said Dr. Stephen T. Beale, because, in their opinion, the end contemplated by the iasv in the m iral re form of the prisoner, had been attained—he cause full and ample satisfaction lias been jen dered to public sentiment by trie imprisonment !:•- !:• t!r.\vy undergone, because hu health is undoubtedly brt aking down under the suffering! of body and mind which he lias already endut red, and because the destitute condition ol* hi* aged parents and bereaved and sorrowing wild and children imperatively demand the presence and support of their son, husband and father. And whereas, after a lull and careful exami nation of the facts and evidence in the case, aidt ed by the scientific discussions to which it ha* given rise, (without any intention to reflect tip on the prosecutrix, who no doubt testified 1t what she believed did occur—nor to impugn the integrity of the learned Judge who tried the case, nor the honesty of the jury who convict ed the prisoner,) him now satisfied that the de fendant, Dr. Stephen T. Beale, is not guilty of the crime whereof he stands charged, and wat convicted upon evidence unreliable in its char acter and insufficient in amount. I do, therefore, in consideration of the prenir ises, pardon the said Dr. Stephen T. Beale <i: the crime whereof he is convicted as aforesaid, and he is hereby fully pardoned accordingly.-l Pennsylvaniun. From the New Orleans Picayune of Nov. 3. The Election Eiots in K. Orleans- Death at tlxe Dolls. Two .Men Killed—Several Wounded—The Bal lot Boxes Broken in Two Precincts. We had hoped that the election yesterday j would have been one of the most quiet that was ever held in this city, and the orderly manner in which matters were conducted during the early part of the day seemed to indicate that the hope was well founded. Unfortunately, as noon approached, an excitement commenced at the Eighteenth Rrecinct, having its origin, as we learn, in a contest for precedence in ap proaching the polls. Major Henry Blaize, (one of the otlicers of a German military com pany,) who assumed a championship on the the Democratic side, struck one of the Ameri cans, and thereupon half a dozen revolvers were drawn on him. He started to run, and some eighteen or twenty shots were fired at him. One bullet took effect in his thigh, another in his foot, and a third one passed across his breast. We counted eleven shots in a board fence, all of which had been tired at Blaize. Soon after several lights ensued, and among others, E. D. White, a city contractor, was bad ly beaten and wounded. The dilliculty occurred at the Twentieth Pre cinct. How it commenced we could not as certain, but ol the bloody issue we are certain. A man named Antoiue Feller, a native of France, who had his naturalization papers in iiis hand, was stabbed in the centre of the abdo men by some body—who we could not ascer tain. His friends put him in a cab arid con veyed him to'the Charity Hospital, but he was dead before he arrived there. An Inquest will be held on his body to-day, or as soon as wit nesses can be procured. Towards evening Dr. Sherrer, who kept a drug store at the corner of Greatman and St. Ferdinand streets, was fatally wounded by a pistol shot at the polling booth of the twentieth precinct. It is said that he went to the poll with his naturalization papers in one hand and a pistol in the other, and that being opposed by an American, he tired at him, and wounded him in the arm. The American then returned the fire, and tile shot proved fatal. The de 4" ceased had occasionally been subject to fits of insanity- A man named Antoine was also shot in his leg ; several shots were fired at James Boy las wtiiie he was on horseback, and a German was ] stabbed or wounded in his tiice. Towards 1 1 o'clock, P. Al., a party of men ' broke into the .Ninth Precinct, and destroyed j tile ballot-box, with its contents. There is said i to have been a Democratic majority of GO or7U j in this Precinct. At midnight, a crowd probably the same j one that destroyed the ballot-box in the Ninth i Precinct—forced their way into the engine ; house, where the Inspectors of the Seventh Precinct were engaged in counting the votes. They at once forced the inspectors and clerks j ; to retire, when they seized on the baliot-box ; i and utterly demolished both it and the ballots. : j There were, in this precinct, SOI votes cast;! I and, previous to the destruction of the box, it i i had been ascertained that the Democratic ma [ jo: itv" on the State ticket was *213. !' INTERVIEW BETWEEN HEN. JACKSON and Hon. Stephen A. Douglass, The following notice of an interview between Gen. Jackson and Judge Douglas oflllinois may l* found in one of the recent histories of the Old Hero, and jxxssesses unusual interest: While attending the Nashville convention of August, ISI-I, we visited the Hermitage (only twelve miles distant) in comyany with Jtuhe Douglas ot Illinois, and some of our fellow-nti xens. The Hermitage was crow ded with peo ple from almost every State, who had been in vited thither by the venerable patriot the day succeeding the convention. Governor (.'lay, of Alabama, was near Gen. Jackson, who was himself silting on a sofa in the hall of his resi dence, and as each person entered, Gov. Clay introduced him to the hero, and he passed alone. When Judge Douglass was thus introduced to him, Gen. Jackson raised his brilliant eves, and gazed for a moment in the countenance of the Judge, stili retaining his hand. "Are you the Mr. Douglas of Illinois who delivered a speech last session on the subject of the fine imposed on me tor declaring martial law at New Orleans?" asked Gen. Jackson. "I have delivered a speech in the House of Representatives upon that subject," was the modest reply of our friend. " 1 hen stop : ' said Gen. Jackson, "sit down here beside me! I desire to return you my thanks for that speech. You are the first man that has ever relieved my mind on that subject which has rested on it for thirty years. My enemies have always charged m with viola ting the constitution of my country bv decla ring martial law at New Orleans; and un friends have always admitted the violation, but have contended that the circumstances justified me in that violation. I never could understand how it was that the performance of a solemn duty to my country— a duty which, if I had neglected to perform, would have made me a traitor in the sight of God and man—could prop, erly be pronounced a violation of the Constitu tion. 1 felt convinced, in my own mind, that I was not guilty of such heinous offence; but I could never make out a legal justification of mr couise, nor has it ever been done, sir, until, yut, on the floor of Congress, at the late session, e{- tablished it beyond the possibility of cavil cr doubt. I thank you for that speech ; it has re lieved mv mind from the only cireuinstance that rested painfully upon it. Throughout mv w hob life, I nevti performed an official act which f view as a violation of the constitution ot my country, and I can now go down to the grave in peace, with perfect consciousness that i have not broken at any period of my lib' the consti

tution of niv country." Know-Nothing Democrats. There are doubtless (says the North Carolina Standard) still some democrats who linger m the Know Nothing ranks—democrats who, in an unguarded hour, were induced to connect themselves with the Order, and who regret it, and would be glad to be once more in lull com munion witb their foimer party assiciates. To all such we say, break the bonds that are upon you, and come back tu the old democratic party. What can you promise yourselves, and what can you do for vour country, by remaining where you are 1 You perceive, as we all do, that the Know-Nothing organization was not needed—that it has failed in the Southern States —that it is hopelessly fused and abol it ionized in the free States—and that as a national organi zation, it no longer exists. The old democratic party is, alter all. the only true national .Jrner ican party. The records ol all our past history prove this, and the future is lull of hop? lor the country through the same old party. Come back, then, those of you who have honestly gone astray, and the democracy will receive you with open arms. The great contest of IShfi will soon commence. Range yourselves at once under the democratic banner, and a mong your old friends, and aid us in achieving a victory lor the Constitution, the Union, and the rights of the States.

The Hamilton, (C. VV,) Runner furnishes the following illustration of the evil eifects of ga ming : A military officer, residing at the tine* oftlie occurrence we are about to mention in one of llu* small towns on the southern coast of Ireland, was passionately fond ul gambling, and on>* night after losing all bis money and other valuables at tiie gaining table, offered to slake fiis wife, a lovely \vom#i, against all that his upvoiient had won from him. The offer was accepted, the game played, and the ollicer beaten. The wife, indignant at her lord's seeming want of affec tion, and little knowing the infatuation of gam bling, determined on becoming the property of the winner. The husband's honor being at stake—lie could tiller no objection ; the wile, who had no children, accompanied her new master, and the poor victim to the hellish pas sion of gambling became a maniac! Often and often have we met the poor fellow on the sea shore, his hands behind his hack, gazing intent ly across the broad, expansive ocean, as if he expected the return of her on whom his soul had doated, and still remembered, fioin its bosom— wild and tempestuous as his own—but she nev er came. 05 s *We may prevent the grass growing un der our feet while living, but we cannot pie vent its flourishing over our heads when dead X All-Saints' Day in Sew Orleans. The Delta of the 2d inst. says : "As has been our custom for years on All-Saints' Day, we yesterday evening visited the several cemeteries of the city, to enjoy, in common with the great majority of the people of New Orleans, the grand pageant presented by these decorated ci ties of the dead. With difficulty we edged our way through the crowds of all ages, sexes, col ors, and conditions, that jammed up the en trance to these homes of departed and soon found ourselves in the midst of life and pleasure than of death and sorrow. The tombs were decked out in all the flowers, immortal draper ies, and other insignia of mortality that the love of friends ami relatives could devise, or their means procure, to ornament, the iast earth ly resting-places of their friends and relatives dead ; and winding the way among the gaily decked tombs were throngs of beautiful ladies and smiling children in holiday attire, and busy, hustling men, whose thoughts appeared to be entirely absorbed in the present."

It is with sorrow anil pain that we are called upon to record the death of tins gentleman, and confess onr feelings are averse to the task. The many vir tues, however, which adorned Ins character as a Christian and Philanthropist, are worth\ both to he admired and imitated. He was a man proverbial for his goodness of heart—always letnly and willing to releave the distressed by contributing t.> their wants, and by words of kindness and sympathy binding up the broken and wounded heart. At the lender age ol sixteen years—when the world to him with all its sinful allurements was mod to be desired—lie yielded to the gei.tie vvooings of the holy spirit, and gave his heart to God. He immediately connected himself with M. E. Church, ami from that time up To the hour of his departure continued, within its folds, a consistent and devoted member, and at the time of his death was a Trustee, Class-leader and Sabbath School l'eacher. As Trustee, the Church has lost an efficient officer, and his class members an affec tionate and kind leader. No more w ill his voice be heard to cheer and encoufage the tempted people of (■od ; no more will the tear drop from the eye, or the heart swell with emotion ol giatitued, as he would hear them speak ol the "goodness of God." In the Sabbath school his vacancy will not be easily filled; teaching lie was proficient as an instructor, always endeavoring to point tho-e under his charge to the "Lamb ot God that taketh away the sins of the World." Mr. HAZI.KTT leaves a wile am! six children (four of whom are under six years of age.) To them the stroke is terrible and blasting—and long will their iieai Is bleed in coiiseijuent'eof their irreparable 10-s, and whilst they may think their affliction is too great to be born, they should remember "God tempers the winds unto the shorn lamb.'' The wife has lost a dutitul and affectionate husband—the children an in dulgent and kind lather. But he has gone to his rest! He early applied lor pardon and received it with the assurance it he was laithfnl unto the end, a crown of evetlasting rejoicing would he his inheritance.— Nobly did he endure the temptations arid trials inn ilent to a Chiistian's life—faithfully bid he disclirage his duties—and when he came to die he had the Cod he loved to worship to be hear him through the con flict with death, and triumphantly passed over the Jordan, when "Churebic legions conveyed him home And shout him welcome to the skies." Oh ! how consoling to his mourning friends to know that he has reached the haven of eternal rest; that he is with his Redeemer to enjoy blessings forever more. "Almighty God!
