"Look to the Worth. F01 forty years the preponderance in infiu ence in the affairs of the general government has been in favor of the-Soufh. For the same period, legislation has been conducted, mainly at the bidding of southern Statesmen, whose zeal for southern interests gave them a prominence in which - they could exhibit their talents to gfeater advantage than was' claimed by the more solid and thoughtful men of the North. In this way Louisiana was purchased—Texas was annexed, the Gulf stream defended, the Right of Search denied—and many other policies adopted out of which have grown benefits to the whole country, bat which at ihe time were agitated for sectional purposes. The annexion of Texas and the war with Mexico have done more for the developement of ihe strength of 'his cohh'lry, than any measure since the a- doption of the Constitution. These two great events, opened new fields of enterprise to ihe hardy pioneer—brought to the knowledge of the people new territory...

Poor, indeed must be ihe rr iinds given to such slang1, and poorer the wretch'who thus brazingly attempts escaping the truth.

GENERAL NEWS -^The St. Louis Democrat Kansas correspondent, writing from Lawrence, thus speaks of the troubles on the border :— All is quiet on the Kansas side cf the border. No force is congregated anywhere. Montgomery never crossed the Missouri border in any of the recent difficulties'. Brown it is understood, has left the border at the request of Montgomery. The peoplo over the line are frightened yet, and needlessly alamed by those who desire to get up a rupture. Many Slave owners in" their terror have fled from the border counties of Texas with their slaves. It is estimated that over one thousand have thus been carried off in the past two weeks.. So tho nullifiers who are raising a civil war alarm on the border are the practical emaneipationists. The Governor of this territory is in daily communication with your Governor, but neither functionary have yet found out what is to be done, or really what ia the matter. The Legislature is in session at Lawrence. The Secretary ...

The Age of Sieaan. Eivery age has its single idea, out of which lo construct a variety of benefits. Mankind are always at work in production, a necessity compelled by consumption—but aside from this production, there is always an influence prevailing that never folly developes itself among the people by whom it was-originated. Franklin and Fullon never dreamed ofthe vast results which would grow out of iheir experiments, and much as the present generation has realized from the force of electricity and steam, the conception of these two great ideas are scarcely yet complete. The Age of Steam is just approaching, and the use of electricity is only an experiment out of which will grow effects of more praciical Utility thaa the conveying of messages. Electric'ry is capable of more general use—and when science becomes better acquainted with this, Ihe most powerful of all the elements, science will guide it to labor, use il as an aaenl of force, as it is now used as a medium of communic...

Sevenr ty years ago, the vast coal fields of Schuylkill.county. were unthought of and undiscovered. The first coal-fire Was kindled in Philadelphia some sixty years ago — and what was then the curiosity ofthe alchemist's laboratory, has now become the reality of the kitchen and the comfort of the parlor. The fitst Pennsylvania Anthracite coal was sent to market in 1820—the shipment being composed of the enormous amount of three hundred and sixty five tons. Since then the increase has been immense, until in 1856 it amounted to 7,256,891.
