Forged Circular and the Rocky Mountain Mustang.
yo_ The "Journal" of this morning denies that the
FORGED CIRCULAR was intended to be kept secret in
.11untingdon until it was too late for the Americans to corm
tcraet it. Their assertion is a base, unqualified lie, and the
community know it. The appearance of the Circular in
the "Journal" on the morning of the election, without ties
forged names, was a weak attempt to assume an air of hon
esty! and they now must lie and slander to screen them
selves from public reprobation. Truly, "the way of the
transgressor is hard !"

To DE SWALLOWED llE—The Fillmore party of Huntingdon
county, numbering 1615 voters, by the Abolition disunion
ists numbering but 926 voters! The Abolitionists have
ono advantage, however, over the true Fillmore men—they
have in their ranks men who do not hesitate to FORGE the
the names of their neighbors when necessary to accomplish
their purposes. It was a bold stroke to forge names fur
the double purpose of propagating falSehood and deceiving
the people on the eve of the election. And what of the
men who done it ? God save the rising generation from
the influence of such Republicanism, and such Christianity,
which no longer considers it a crime fu• meain high places
and front pews to commit acts of FORGERY.

And frame my face to all occasions."

LOUIS NAPOLEON.—It is stated that arrests continue
to be made in Paris of individuals suspected of conspiring
against the life of the Emperor. The conduct of his Ma
jesty on the occasion of his return to Paris, and since,
gives the impression to the public that these arrests are
based upon facts which fully warrant utmost rigor of
the - police. I is entry into Paris was prb ateomannounced

"PEACEABLE EMIGRANTS."—Some of the Kansas corres
pondents for the newspapers were terribly indignant over
the arrest of 250 "peaceable emigrants" into that territory
by Governor Geary,
, but subsequently were released by
prthnises of behaving therlaselves peaceably. The baggage
wagon of these peaceable emigrants, whet', overhauled,
showed the following implements of industry:
" Three boxes of navy pistols, all new, viz : 6 six and 5
five shooters; 12 Colt's, navy size; 4 boxes ball cartridges;
1 box-10 Sharpe's rides; 145 breech loading muskets; 85
peleussion muskets ; 115 bayonets; 61 common sabres; 2.
officers sabres; kegs of gunpowder; 61 dragoon sad

The 'clniin as an iinplement of husbandry is a striking

that the party expected plenty of game.

Black Republican party in Huntingdon county. It is the
party that was to give 1500 majority, but didn't. The re
turns show that they polled 926 whole votes I And yet
they threaten to "swallow up" 1645 Americans! The Re

The Latest Election Returns
The nearly complete returns from 72 coun
ties, give a Democratic majority of about 20,-
000: The State has undoubtedly gone for
Buchanan by a large majority.
There seeins. to be some . doubt about the
result of Illinois. A despatch from Chicago,
dated yesterday, says that no one knows how
the State has gone, and that the probabilities
favor Buchanan. P. S. Illinois is certain.
Our advices from Alabama, report large
Democratic gains in almost every county.—
The majority is estimated at 20,000.
The returns from Florida are very incom

The official majorities in thirty-three coun
ties of Indiana, show la Democratic gain of
9643. The Western counties show a _Repub

as far as heard from, is 11,925, which will
be reduced to about 10,000.

The Southern ' Counties of - New Jersey,

show large Democratic gains. This fact
proves that those people of the free States
who reside near the slaye States, who have
opportunities of: perceiving the practical
workings of slavery and whO have had for
years a considerable negro population among
them,-4he very people. whoknow most prac
tically about this question, are the most de
termined in their opposition to the crusade
upon the South inaugurated by Black Repub
licanism. In the States and Counties farth
est removed from the slave States, Northern
Illinois, Northern Indiana, Northern Ohio,
Northern New York, and Vermont, Maine,
and Massachusetts, where negroes are curi
osities, where little is known of their char
acters, or the practical workings of slavery
—and where the greatest amount of ignorance
upon this subject prevails, Black Republi
eanism receives its largest majorities.
A Striking Contrast.
The Pennsylvanian asks candid and intelli
gent Men to reflect for ono moment, upon
the striking contrast which the two large
cities, Philadelphia and New York, where
the Democrats gave such overwhelming ma
jorities, and the strongholds of Know-Noth
ingism, Baltimore and New Orleans. In
the• two former, the 'Democrats have the Con
trol of the police force, in the latter that force
is subservient to Know-Nothing misrule. In
the two former . cities, every, person legally
entitled •to vote, was allowed to do so with
out hindrance or molestiAion; in the two
latter Cities, legal voters were driven from
the polls and thousands were preVezitecl from
voting by threats, violence and intimidation.
In Baltimore especially, the city presented
the appearance l of a town. taken by storm ;
men were shot down as reMorselessly for at
tempting to vote, as if they had been.' ven

The Know-Nothing Mayor, we have no doubt,

votes polled in the non-slaveholding States.
NEW COUNTERFEIT.-A new counterfeit
ten dollar bill on the Girard Bank, Philadel
phia, has made its appearance, which may
deceive the unwary. It is easily detected,
however, by its having on the right-hand end
of the note a group consisting of a man and
woman, in place of the medallion bead of
Stephen Girard, which appears on both ends
of the genuine. In other respects it is a tol
erable imitation of the good note. Tho sig
natures, however, are stiff, and the general
execution is rather coarse. The note detec
ted is dated July 10th, 1856, Letter B. No.
Marriage and Divorce in California.
ADVICE TO LADIES.
3 c •
By reference to the law columns of our
journals, you will perceive that we are in,
on an average, for four divorces every day.
And what is not a little singular is, that the
application generally comes from the weaker
vessel. Perhaps you will get your ears pull
ed for publishing it, but I must, in all fair
ness, say the root of the evil is that women
are naturally a little too fond of admiration.
Here, in this city, we have at least seven
men to one woman, and in the interior the
disproportion is .much larger. , The conse
quence is that, as in the case of all scarce
commodities, the article commands more than
itaintrinsic value. "It is a good deal sought
after," as the quotations sometimes run, on a
popular railroad stock.
The feminine is quickly caged ; the hus
band is in ecstasies for about a fortnight,
but not quite so exalted the succeeding two
weeks. Her forty other lovers not easily
finding another unappropriated piece of dim
ity to soothe their - disappointment, make
friendly calls upon the lost Pleiad, and by
exceeding sympathy with.her at the coolness
of her husband, win her regard, and then
their attentions are so much more delicate
than those of her lord, that the poor, weak
thing finds that she has committed a great
error in her choice,. especially if the new
flame is rich and generous, and the old one
rather plain and economical. An application
for divorce is the result.
Hundreds have no other excuse to offer in
making . the application than "uncongenial
dispositions," and dislike. The process is
the simplest imaginable. A lawyer with an
easy conscience is engaged—most San Fran
cisco lawyers have easy consciences 'when
they have any—who receives the fee from
the new lover. A referee is then hunted up
by the lawyers, who agrees to decide accord
ing to the lady's wisheS. for a portion of the
fee. The judge, of course, refers the ap
plication as requested. The referee hands
his report into Court, where it is often pass
ed upon without a word of open testimony—
and,- nine cases out of ten, favorably-. The
lady . : is then ready to be married again—and
having lost all delicacy by the process she
has gone through, is ready to run away with
the next lover, without a divorce.
MI advice to weak-headed ladies in the
Atlantic States is, not to come to California
to get , married—and Jot to-come after they
are married; if they are pretty "and inter
esting," they are much safer anchored in
some'§nug harbor in the Atlantic than in the
open roadsteads among the shoals and break
ers of the Pacific.
But for the encouragement of those who
have determined to come, I will quote from
The 'Bulletin the following advertisement.
If a plain cook, thirty-five years of age, has
to give bonds not to marry within six months,
it stands to reason that a tender little chick
en of about half that age would stand no
chance at all of pining away for lack of a
husband up at Rabbit Creek:
WANTED—A single FEMALE, from '2O to 35 years of
age, tb go to Rabbit Creek, Sierra County, to do Plain
Cooking and General Housework in a genteel foully, and

qualified. Address A. C., at this office, or N 0.117 Merchant
N. B. Your correspondent is a married

lishes the following :
Residing within a stone's throw of our of
fice is an old lady, Mrs. Poll. Beaman, a his
tory of whose family presents the most stri
king instance of prolonged life that we ever
knew or heard of. She is now iu the ninety
second year of her ago. Tho decease of her
partner, Tracy Beaman, occurred but a short
time since. lie was two years her senior,
and they had lived together in the same farm
house sixty-nine years. They had a family
of nine children, the eldest of whom is now
seventy-three, and was married when she was
fourteen. Of the grand • children there are
now forty-nine, the eldest of whom is aged
fifty-six. There are also one hundred and
fifty-six great grand=children, and eighteen.
