The Examiner onPollOck Again! The Independent Whig took the Lancaster Examirier, (Whig,) to task for criticising Governor Pollock's appointments; and alleges , on-the authority of the Harrisburg Herald, that Mr. Darlington was himself an applicant for office , and. feels sore because of his disappointment. Of course this is all gammon—and the Examiner of Wednesday last pitches into them , Governor and all , in Lhe following caustic strain :, The Harrisburg Herald is published by the Rev. Stephen Miller, Gov. . Pollock's Flour Inspector, and is regarded as the Governor's organ.. We novr pronounce \\s assertion that the editor of this paper was an applicant for office under Gov. Pollock, a wilful and deliberate falsehood. If the Herald spoke by authority, we extend the charge to its master, although, we can hardly be brought to believe the Governor has got so low as to resort to such means of defence. Nevertheless, he is responsible for the language of his organ, and unless he cau...

Extraordinary Case of Extradition. The Boston Daily advertiser, in noticing the departure of ihe packet ship Daniel Webster from that port for Liverpool, with a large number of passengers, many of them on tours of pleasure and recreation in the Old World during the summer months, records the following case, which shows to what extremes intolerance leads: "Among the crowd of human beings on board lhat proud vessel was one poor woman, with an. infant daughter. Her passage and that of her child were paid by the rich and powerful commonwealth of Massachusetts. She left our free and happy shores uuwilling and reluctant. She went away against her own free will, constrained by force of the authorities of the State. Her cri-eeas she begged not lo be thus cruelly banishedwere , we are toldmost piteousand such as to cause the accidental witnesses of the scene to burn with indignation.

"Why Dread Danger Wow. There is not now in ihe United States a larger proportion of foreigners and Catholics than there was in the country when the Declaration of Independence was signed.— There are not in office in the United Slates as many Catholics , in proportion lo population , as there wero of these classes among lhe signers of the Declaration of Independence and in the Convention which formed the Constitution of the United S'ales, in proportion to the-whole number of each. The proportiou of Cotholics ami "foreigners in the armies of the Revolution, on ths American side, was five times greater than the proportion of these classes who have ever heks of¬ fice in the United Slates. Whatever the evil of foreign emigration has been and however greater the dangers from the spread of the Catholic religion, these evil? and these dangers am certainly no greater now than they always have been. On tho contrary, it would have been much easier for Catholic France , Spain and Italy, aft...

Prohibitory Fanatacism. The new prohibitory liquor law, whicli went into effect in Massachusetts on Monbay last, not only closes the shops of dealers; but prohibits the transportation of liquor by railroads and other public conveyances.— It seems to meet with no little opposition, and the meeting held at Faneuil Hail,, on Monday evening, is said la have been the largest gathering that has assembled ' in that building for many years. Among the speakers on the occasion was the Rev. J. P. Lpvejoy, of Cambridge, who denounced the law as an imquitious measure. He thus summed Up some of its provisions: The law fines a druggist foi selling a glass of alcohol $1,000imposing this fine even for a mistake. But if a man goes to a town agent and gets a glass by telling a liethe fine is S5. Charging SI,000 for a mistake and S5 fora lie ! A man who manufactures a barrel of cider is fined under this law $50 and imprisonment from three lo six months for the first offence; $200 and imprisonment six...

Speculations in Breadstuffa. The New York Sun charges that there ia a species of gambling, similar to that which exists in stock speculations, carried on systematically in that city by speculators in breadstuffs. It says : While successive steamers from Europe were reporting dull markets or a decline in breadstuff'sthe speculators in our markets operated with great tact to prevent the news from depressing prices here but ¦ as soon as breadstuffs took an upward turn in the European marketsup went prices in New York, as the result of the ' ; favorable ; ' foreign news. The daily arrivals.of produce at our ports are also used to aid the speculating or gambling game. Light arrivals make holders firmand prices are pressed up sixpence or twelve and '.a half cents. Large, arrivals merely " check the advancing tendency"and the reporters usually add, "few sales/' * "hoi? ders firm, " " no disposition to press sales. " Of course not. In the present stagnant state of the money market the b...

The Crop3. Ckoes in Western Prnssyx.vania..—As it regards the prospect for cerealswo hear only cheering words from the farmers. In those portions of Westmorland, and Fayette counties, through which we rode a few days since, we made it a point to maik the appearance of grain fields. Oats and wheat wave in the passing wind, and the fields of corn seemed fit for hoeing. The drought of last year seems to have brought a blessing behind itfor we are informed that many of the most injurious insects and grubs appear to have been almost entirely exterminated, or as we may say, burnt out.—Pittsburg Journal. Wheat Crop of Michigan.—The Detroit Democrat states that the sight of the wheat fields in the northern part of the State is perfectly glorious. The breadth sown is &nusually greatand the staple is a deep green, a ' most to blackness—rankstrong, thick and high.

The Cost of Bombarding Seb.\stopoi..— The bombardment of Sebaslopnl, by the last advices, had continued for thirteen days, pourins an incessant fire upon the town, and according lo the English advices, making a ste,\;!y progress against the works, thouah GortschakofFs report, the latest, says the Allies' fiie was slackening. The iron shot fired into Sebastopol o.vceeding anything of the kind that :he annals of war have ever recorded. Five hundred guns, firing one hundred and twenty rounds a day, gives a total of sixty thousand rounds, which may well b« 1 termed an '"infernal fire, ' as Gortschacoff called it. It is estimated that the amount of shot fired in the thirteen days of the bombardment by the Allies, equalled thirty five millions one hundred thousand pounds, which would cost , not including the transportation and the powder, 3313,380. The powder would cost S702, 000making a total of over a million dollars. Thisif it resulted in the capture of the place, would be cheap, b...
