EF" We have, on several occasions referred to the prospect of Central Pennsylvania, and particularly Centre counly. These prospects-have not .been diminished, nor. have we less hope for augmented prosperity as spring app'rr aches, wilh its promises of renewed business, and increased labor. One of. the charming evidences of a determination to hasten the development of Centre county, is the steady determination With which our railroad conneclion with Ihe wesl is prosecuted, and lo this we may also add, an awakening spirit of enterprise among local.capilalists and real estate proprietors. To these two influences we must.look for development, but in depending on local capital and landed Wealth, the mechanic and the laboter must also be careful that neither of Ihese influences so completely absorb the benefits of another prosperous season, as to induce panics and contractions similar to those,throogh which the country, has so ruinously passed. The mere excitement of business does not...

Tfse Acquisition of Cuba The proposition of the President in relation to Cuba, and the discussion in a late cadctls of Democratic Senators, have been the cause of a strange sensation throughout the country. Legislation in this'movement, assumes a.shape and a-powet which is scarcely guaranteed by theConstilution, and the offer to place.lhirly millions ofdollars in the hands of an Executive officer; merely to prosecute a negotiation, has scarcely a precedent in the history of any country pretending to live under a Republican constitution. This idea of purchasing Cuba was not suggested by any desire of the inhabitants to be sold, but springs from the poverty and presumed inability of Spain to hold her possession. These reasons are, in the judgment ol an American Senate, sufficient, and the enormous sum of thirty millions is ptoposed at once, as the initial of this bargain, in which one portion of the sjbje.-'a and slaves of one power are to be transferred to another. It is ,not a...

!3P° The proposition, said to have come from Jefferson Davis, that the United States should attach Cuba for debt, has called attention to the fact that the proposer's own State, Mississippi, is liable to the same kind of attachment, her bonds remaining unpaid1 to this day, and bul Kttle attachment being felt for them by the holders. There are none so ready for harsh measures against debtors as people who never pay their own debts. fls^-The Pensylvania Agricultural Society have resolved to appropriate one-half of all the receipts for life membership; lo the Farmers' High School. This is only out of the fundsreeived by the society for one year, burthe donation is considerable and liberal.

A Revolution in Europe The latest hews from Europe announce the prospect of another revolution. The Germans, Italians and Irish are engaged in this raovenfent, each, of course, under different organizations, bul each equally intent on civil liberty. Popular outbreaks on the continent and peninsular are peculiar riots, and although the news coming to us from Europe of the present revolutionary spirit claims for il a wider power, promising greater benefit lhan any of its piedecessors, we have yet little hope to encourage lis of its success. That Europe will be free, eventually, there is no doubt, but freedom and priestcraft cannot exist on the same soil; or breathe healthily in the same climate. To tafk of freedom beneath ihe walls of the Vatician would be about as reasonable as a man talking of safety on the brink of Niagara Falls: Italy, in all her Wildest dreams, must regard freedom as locked in the silence of th'eclois ter. Priests and grates hold "it there, and from thence ...

Increased Postage The recommendation of the, Postmaster General to increase the rStes Of'postage, is one of "those-retrograde movernents which the people Will scarcely sanction"; When we remember the progress fnakliig:;.ln railroads and telegraphs by private' enterprise, it does seem strange that this government should make a suggestion fo increase' the tales, of postage. Of all the other department's which confer the most benefit, the post office should not be expected to support itself, nor is it likely thai it will be allswsd lo do so, at the expense of the intelligence and business o'f the country. Whs'ri an Efppropriaflo'n for the army or navy is asked if. rfie'e'fs vhtfi no oppo sition, nor is there any opposidori to vast grants of land being made to western railroad companies, and even a demand for thirty millions of dollars to pSrshase Cuba is treated with respect, but if the Post office Department shows a deficiency in its receipts, the cry. is at once raised -for i...

'HP We learn from the Lancaster Daily Express, that Edward Pollock, a young and talented writer; died recently in California. We had the pleasure of once knowing the deceased intimately, and had he lived, he would certainly have made a mark and a reputation in the literary world. lie contributed several poems lo the weekly press and magazines of Philadelphia, among which was one. entitled Italy, which at the time was received with great favor by the literati of the town. The coincidence in the life of young PoIIock was the fact that he had never received a month's schooling, came to this country a poor Irish boy, apprenticed' himself to learn the trade of house and' sign painting, and in his leisure evening hours cultivated the muses, or straying, amid the garden of romance, culled'some of its fairest and most fragrant flowers.
