An exterminating war has raged over an extent of fifty miles aronnd us—nearly nil communication with the interior has been cut off; lands have remained unfilled; every article of food has advanced 200 per cent, in price, and hcrror and confusion have raged on every side.

Finaiites ol Penrntylvanin.

THE TICKET. At toon as ve learned the nominations made by the Convention, which met in Philadelphia, we run up our flag, with the names of HARRISON & WEBSTER inscribed io bold relief thereon. At that time we had not room to call the attention of our readers to it. We purpoee doing so now.

Crain vs. Porter. Our readers will recollect that I suit was instituted, by the heirs of Even Crain against D. It. Porter, as the surviving partner of Patton . and Porter. The suit was arbitrated last week.- and we are not a little surprised to see the apparent exultation with which our neighbor of the "Gazette" publishes the award, as well HS the political character ot two of the arbitrators. . .. Our intention was to have referred to the matter in no way, but to leave it until its final adjudication. No possible good can come from any attempt to misslead the public mind, or to prejudice public opinion, for or against eit! er of the liti" gants. We wonder, therefore, not a little, to see an effort thus made, to induce the people to believe that the Messrs. Grain's were actuated by any other, than correct motives, Svhert they laid in their demand- We shall, then in order that the people can understand the matter, give in as fc-.r words as possible, the history. The arbitrati...
