Among the hardships of the crisis the Intel ligencer mentions that which has befallen 4*an old and well established firm, in our own neighborhood, and of which the business honor, always untarnished, had become a heredita ment ^more precious than wealth) from father to son. but which, compelled now to yield for the first time to the pressure, has been able to rescue nothing from the wreck save that which money cannot enh.ince nor poverty depreciate, the mens sibi cons eta recti V The Union continues its able series of arti cles upon Banks and Banking.

The Goods or the Stiimir Norfolk .?The Norfolk Day Book states that a part of the hull and some eight thousand dollars' worth of the goods of the Norfolk had washed ashore. The goods were sold in the different districts. From 30 to 60 per cent, salvage was allowed on the gross amount of sales. ID" Speculators in s ugar, who have recently met with sudden reverse* in their profession, must have been driven to their wit's end in order to procure place* where the sweet article might be stowed snugly away*for future use. At the present time there are hundreds of hogsheads of the article stowed in and about a stable, situated at Reed street and Jefferson avenue, Philadel phia. Naw Word?The last English journals all contain a new word, which will doubtless rome into immediate use on both sides of the Atlantic. In speaking of a telegraphic dispatch thev call it a telegram But this is not a term of English coinage; it was used by some of our country co temporaries a year or two ago, the Syracuse Jour nal. if we mistake not, having invented it. it has a rather queer look, at first; but it is a very convenient term, and it will soon become familiar to the eye. No Extra Sr^>sius.?The banks of New York have concluded they c>>n get along without the in. tervention of the Legislature The Committee of New York merchants, bankers, and others that visit Albany to have a talk with Governor King about the financial crisis and the propriety of call ing an extra-session of the Legislature, telegraph ed h:m during Thursday after reading the flat of the Judges of the Supreme Court that the extra session would be unnecessary in the present aspect of affairs. Thk Ska - V i r w Hovsr Thagedt? Donn'ily Sentenced.?Judge Vredenburgh, on Thursday, sentenced James p. Donnelly to be hung at Mon mouth Jail, on the *?th of January next, at three o clock, p. ro ,,for the murder of Albert S. Moses He received the sentence with great firmness Being asked the usual question, before sentence passed, he delivered a speech concluding as fol lows : 44 And I now declare that I am innocent of the blood of this voting man. and am no' afraid to meet my God, or Albert .Moses; and if what 1 have uttered is not true, may my tongue cleave to the rocf of my mouth.7' Skrioi-s R ailroao Accwrxt ?The mail train ou the Central Railroad was thrown from the track vest of Syracuse, N. Y., on Thursday evening, in consequence of a piece of the road bein? Washed away. The whole train, consisting of a baggage car. mail car, and four passenger ears were thrown down an embankment twenty feet deep and all shattered to f.agneat*. Th<re were sixty passenger;, in tLe cars, of whom a MNs Brow.i, of Toronto, was drowned. Mr. Bron aon. of New Britain, Conn , was badly injured and has since died Twenty other passenger* were injured, six seriously The mail car and mail bags, excepting one, were burnt, the tar having taken hre from the furnace of the lucomo tin. A Bmoszr Charged with Fkaid ? James O'Conner, banker and broker, of the firm of O Conner Brow., of Pitl&burg, was arretted, on Wednesday last, on the charge of obtaining the sum of 3i>3TUJU from the Merchants and Manufac turers Bank, of P.ttsburg, by fraud. A prelim inary hearing tot'k place and the accused gave bail in f^iu.UJO for further hearing before Judge Hampton. He was immediately after arrested on a charge of conspiracy with Wilson Blackeney. late a book-keeper of the bank, in obtaining *310, 000 from the same !,ank, upon which charge he also gave bail The allegation is that Mr. O Con ner overdrew his amount to the extent of *310,W)0, aud that the book-keeper concealed the fact from the Directors. On Thursday three young girls, named An na Maria Jackson, alias Yankee, aged 14 Wrin fred Murpby.aijed 16, and Hannah Leary, aged 14, were arrested in Philadelphia, by offi^r James Conway, and taken before Alderman Enen, on charge of larceny It appears that these girls, who were engaged in vending matches, went iato the store of Mr. James Proctor, and found him asleep. They then, it |? alleged, stole two five dollar notes When Mr P woke up he found them there, and asked them what they wanted, when they used some very indecent language, too gross for publication. They were also charged with prow ling about the streets for improper and vicious purposes The whole party were sent to the House ?f Refuge.

A Proposed Corr-RiGHT Treatt.?It is in timated in the Washington correspondence of distant newspapers, that tbi* Government is about to enter into an international oopy-right treaty with England. We doubt the fact, be cause it would be difficult to arrange any suih convention, the result of which would not be injurious to ^e general interest# of this coun try Treaties arc xuade for the benefit of the community at large Not for that of any small class of the community at the expense of the great mass of their fcllow-citiiens. In this case, the injurious effect* of t^e enactment of a copy-right law by Congress, as the remit of the formation of a copy-right treaty with Britain, ore positive and palpable. For every American work for which there is a demand in England there are fifty English works for which there is a demand in the United States ; and for every oopy of a work written by an American, sold in Great Britain, there are two hundred copies of works written by Eng lishmen sold in the United States. These will doubtless be unpalatable facts to the mass of our readers. They are neverthe less true, however, and should be reflected on ere the enactment of a copy-right law by which every American reader of current English works shall hereafter be taxed for the benefit of the English author, when, without the enact ment of such a law, it is certain that the Amer ican reader may obtain the woik without pay ingany such tax. Some of ourcotemporaries will scold us for want of esprit du corps in refusing to advocate 44 protection" for those who, like ourself, live on the popular demand for the emanations of the brain. In this case, however, we have a higher duty to perform than a duty even to our own class in society. That is, to Amencan society at large. We are for keeping good books cheap. For keeping the laws of the United States in that connection so that our fellow-citi7.cns of all degrees may have the ad vantage of the republication of all foreign works worth republishing in this country, at as low prices as possible. We would not quarrel with American authors who desire to be able to copy-right their works abroad; but wo would not tax the American reading public sixpence to enable the former to accomplish that object. The Usios.?The inen who mike the objec tion that the existence of slavery in a region unfits it for the purposes of white labor, taunt the South with the fact that there are only three hundred thousand slaveholders in the whole South. Thus, we see, there are more than five millions of non-slaveholders living in slave holding States. If we recollect rightly, the last census, too, discloses the fact that there are dou ble as many persons from the North who have chosen those States as their residences, in pref erence to non-slave holding States, as there are slaveholders in the Union. Again, large portions of Delaware, Maryland, Tennessee. Kentucky and Missouri, are practi cally non-slaveholding. Such would be the case in any northern territory, and northerners set tling in such sections would be no more affccted by slavery than tho northern border States. They are affccted by it, but beneficially affected. They find the bordering slave States excellent and extensive markets for their merchandise manufactures, mules, hogs and other prodnc tions. The South is the great market for the North, as the North is for the South. Practi cal men understand this, and are annually ex pending millions to open main lines of commu nication between the sections. The closer you bring the two forma of society together, the bet ter markets they afford for each other; and they closest when both exist in the same State. But this is not close enough Thousands of the most adventurous northerners annually em igrate into tho very thick of slavery, as teach er*, merchants, lawyers, doctors, clergymen and mechanics, aud some of them are among our most useful and enterprising citizens.. We would like to see this imiu/gration continue and increase. It would knit the Union more closely together; for those who visit cither section very generally return cured of all sectional preju dice. It would not continue, however, a day under Republican party ascendancy. If even now, while an immense party at the North is engaged in deadly hostility to the South, endeavoring, many of them, to excite ser vile insurrection,?if even now, northerners find the South a pleasant and a profitable resi dence. how inany more would come if Abolition ism would but cease its wicked machinations. As many from the South go North for business or for pleasure as come from the North to the South. This union and the intercourse is pleas ant, profitable and natural, afid we regret the prevalence of the doctrines of Abolitionist, which contain the seeds of its dissolution. We have shown conclusively ihat the admis sion of slavery will not operate to the exclusion of non-slaveholders, whether they come from North or South. It remains to consider, the effects of slavery extension on the resident citizens of non sUvebolding States. Here the advantages are still more manifest. They will not have their scruples, their tastes, or their consciences affected by being brought into juxtaposition with slavery, and yet will enjoy the benefits of purchasing slave products at cheaper rates, selling their own at dearer rates, and obtaining a more extended market. At present there are more ihau enough slaves on the comparatively unproductive lands of the Atlantic coes ;?dif fuse these slaves over the West and Southwest, and, without Increasing the number of slaves at all, the amount produced by them may be dou bled This will cheapen slave products, which the North needs, and increase tho market for northern products; for the purchases of the South will only be limited by her ability to buy, if Abolitionism will but let her alone. Could Abolitionism succeed in blotting out ne gro slavery, how fatal would it be to the inter ests of a large portion of their own section ? She may effcct the same thing by provoking retal iatory measures, and driving the South to car rying on her own eommerce and her own man ufactories. The present and past teach that intercourse between the sections has been and is mutually and equally beneficial, or it would not have existed. Either section can live with out the other, but non-intercourse would affect injuriously each region, and soon lead to dis union. After all, the certainty is, that if slavery ex tend, its extension will only be permanent where it is profitable, useful and natural, and, of consequence, advantage.us to all sections. The Cra.sii is Wai.l Street.?The New York iVw.i gives a graphic description of the scene in Wall street on Tuesday last, when the 4,run" was being made that forced eighteen of her banks to suspend before the close of busi ness hours, and the rest unanimously to resolve 44 not to pay specie over their oounters on the next morning/'?that being the phraseology in which they promulged the fact that they had 44 gone the way of all flesh'' financial, in these times. We entertain no sympathy whatever with the New York banks, because their re fusal to take the step whioh they were com pelled U> take at the eleventh hour ruined hundreds, if not thousands, of the moot enter prising and us?ful business men in New York quite as sound in the way of substantial assets as themselves. They played the part of the dog in the manger, and in the end found that kaeping the merchants from the food (financial) in their guardianship did not suffice to make that food trail able for their own preservation. But we will let the News tell the story of the result of the just furore of excitement against them, brought about by their conduct to the suffering mercantile interest generally, as fol lows: ??Wall street Itself presented a strange scene. One deoite mass of human beings filled the street extending from Broadway to Pearl street, mostly of our first business men, with careworn looks, despair depicted in every feature, each question ing eageily his neighbor, seeking information which no one could give. "The work had fairly commenced. There was no child s play h?re. No hard-fisted labor ing men, no flaunting servant girls or "anxious mothers" running the banks or seeking to ex change bank notes into the Constitutional cur rency, only to be laughed and sneered at for do ing ?o, but the "merchant princes" were there in myriads thronging every nook and corner, and long lines of these extending from the bank coun ters far into the street, with "evidence of depos its" in hand, each anxious to "draw" before the linal exhaustion took place. "There was in this vast throng no disturbance, no unseemly haste, but a positive determination apparently to pay off the banks for their niggard ly, senseless, and cruel course, which resulted in crushing every business man, but the object of which was to save themselves. Had they pursu ed a judicious course in ma*king loans, it would have averted this disaster, and not only insured their own safety,but protected the merchant also. There has lieen, up to within the last few days, the most kind ana generous feeling toward the banks, a feeling entertained by the whole mer cantile community, and every confidence was placed in them. With such a state of feeling th?*se institutions might have increased their loans even beyond their usual line, and no dan ger need have been apprehended; but pursuing a directly opposite course, while the crisis was upon us, refusing the least aid to the country banks, calling in their loans, reducing their line of discounts in the spa;e of a few days to an un heard-of extent, their very acts carrying fear and dismay to the heart of every business man, what was to have l>een expected from such a policy but a general blowing up? The bank presidents themselves planted with their own hands the magazine under their own vaults, and even light ed the match, and to apply it was the easiest,and the mou natural thing in'the world." Importa.it Ddcision.?Subjoined is the de cision of the Acting Commissioner of the Gen eral Land Office in relation to the refusal of a Surveyor General to approve the survey of a donation claim: Genkbal La so Office, Oct. 15,1R7T Fir : In your letter of the 22d of July last, now before me, you stale that the Surveyor General has refused to approve the survey of a donation claim, made according tb the abstract furnished, on the ground that " it was not in a compact form, as it crossed a meandered stream;" and you ask the attention of this office to the condi tion of a numlHTof claims which have been per mitted by former Surveyors General, lying on both sides of rapid streams, the disturbance of which claim would work gieat injury to claim ants. 4c. This office has decided against the right of a claimant to f ross a i% nnvigciblc str'fitti" in order to get the quantity of land to which he may be entiled in virtue or his settlement, &c., but what you describe as rapid mountain stream, scarcely navigable with a canoe, cannot be considered as coining under that bead; and the location of a claim on both sides of a stream of this character should not be considered cause for rejection, where the improvements lie on both sides, and the claim is in a compact form, even though it may have t??n found convenient or nec.essaiy in the prosecutiotiof the public suiveys to meander such stream ; nor should one passage of such a stream through a claim render it liable to objec tion on the score of compactness of form. The sixth section of the donation act of INM) is liberal in its provisions with regard to the loca tion of claims. Whilst it provides that claims "shall be in a compact form, and, where it is practicable so to do, the land so claimed shall be taken as nearly as practicable by legal subdi visions," it also. " where that cannot be done," makes it the duty of the Surveyor General " to survey and make cach claim with the t>oundaries as claimed." y?u do no1 present a particular case in which tuis difficulty exists, these general views are mere ly thrown out for your consideration, and are not laid down a* a rule for vour government in any particular class of cases , That will be done when an actual case is presented for decision. It is desired that the most liberal course con sistent with law be pursued towards the settlers, especially of that class to which you refer, who settled early in good faith, and have completed their four-years term of settlement and occupa tion, and that every facility he afforded them for the settlement of their claims and quieting their titles 1 ? In reply to the closing paragraph of your letter. In which you inquire " whether it is the duty of this (your) office or the Surveyor Gencial to de cide in what shade claims may be taken," I have to state that it belongs to the Register and Receiver, under theftth net tion ol the amendatory act of l?tti July, 1K54, to make such decisions, and to the Surveyor General to see that the surveys are properly executed in accordance therewith. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, Joseph S. Wilson, Acting Commissioner. O T A1?S,,ER' Winchester, The Ckaft.?We regret to say that the cur rent financial troubles bid fair to fall with per haps more disastrous weight uj>on the printers than on any other branch of mechanics. Book publishing every where at the North is coming fast to a stand-still. In New York on Satur day evening last, seven hundred journeymen printers lost their situations, and our private advices nay that to-night quito as many more will be thrown out of employment there, while in Boston, Cincinnati. Philadelphia and Bal timore the book publishing business will sj?ecd ily be brought to a close for the time being During the cra*h of 18o7, the effect on the in terests of the craft was very similar, and the craft did not rccover from it for four long years, if our memory serves us. That ephemeral newspapers, too, must stop in such time* as we arc about to have, is very certain ; for people will not buy any thing they can fairly do with out for the time being. We shall see in Wash ington more palpablo evidence of tho condition of the times in tho multitude of journeymen printers out of work flocking hither for em ployment in printing offices doing Government work, than in all else besides. In the most prosperous times they come hith er to that end in undue numbers for the inter est of their resident fellow craftsmen, who rarely fail to aid Buch of them pecuniarily as are in want here. In the numbers in which they bid fair to flock to the Federal Metropolis next winter to get work (under the patronage of members of Congress) they bid fair, we fear, to seriously impair the circumstances of their fellow craftsmen residing in the Distriet, who, we prcmime, will feel called on to share with them to that end tbuir small means on hand, as heretofore. North-Western Boundary Commission ? The Interior Department has received a letter from tho North-Western Boundary Commis sioner, in which it is stated that the party were comfortably located on the shore of the Serni Ahmoor Bay, east of Point Harbor, Pacific eoast. near the 49th parallel, and hope soon to be ready for a start into the interior. The English commission bad not yet pre pared for the start, the surveying party not having arrived, so that the U. 8. party are just so far ahead of them. The English Commis sioner was there in a screw-propeller carrying 21 sixty-eight pounders. One of the American party had gone on an exploration to Fort Lungley, on Frazer river, in the British possessions Commissioner Campbell and Mr. Warren, Secretary of the U. S. Commissioner, had gone in the Active to Puget's Sound for lumber to boild huts for winter quarters. Patent Qrricm.?T/ie Nn+ve drape of Ar kansas? Some time since Major H. C Wil liams was sent to Arkansas, by the Patent Of fice, to investigate the native grape of that State. Ho reports the impossibility, this sea son, of collecting any seeds of the grape, as they have notmatured this year in consequence of the frosts in the spring. He has no doubt, however, of the success of the grape of that part of the country ' in any place where the summers are long enough to permit the ripen ing of the fruit." In Texas he learns that the drought has en tirely cut off the corn crop. The prairie lands suffer most.
