On Tuesday next you will be called upon
1 once more to cast your suffrages in vindication }
of Whig Principles. On that day will be decid- i
i cd the great questions, whether the Canal Board !
shall be composed wholly of Lacofoem or not— !
whether Milflin county shall be represented in
' the next Legislature by one who will render his
aid in carrying out Locofoco measures, however
1 much to the detriment of our best interests they
may be—and, whether o'tr County Officers shall
! AI L be of the san.e party which has for years
I ruled the county without restraint. These are j
among the questions which are brought before
i your consideration; and therefore it behooves
you to arouse to action, that your interests may
; not be TRAMPLED rroN !
Then let us earnestly invoke you, ye gallant ;
; sons of Mifflin, to TURN OUT ! As you value the
prosperity of your National and Htate Adininis
| trations, your own interests, and your children's
future happiness, wc call upon you to TURN
OUT! and not only turn out, but IVORk TOO: i
Let no one coolly put his hands in his pockets
and exclaim "There is no use in trying!" This j
j is a wholly groundless and mistaken notion. j
i The Whig party have but to lay hold of the
! work with the proper spirit, as was shown last
j year—to obtain a full turn out—to give " a long i
' pull, a strong pull, and a pull altogether," and
SUCCESS IS CERTAIN!
From every part of the State we have assur
ances of the most cheering character; our pros
i pects are bright, and even the Locofocos them
selves are beginning to think there is something ]
wrong in the Canal Board. And their appre
, hensions are not without foundation. They fun!
that their candidate is fast losing the confidence

The locofoco papers are publishing what pur

to come from Mr. Fuller. Mr. Saxton has ad
dressed a letter to the Ftnnsylranian, in which
the forgery originally appeared, wherein he
says:—"The letter, as published in the Pinn

as follows :
"I have always been a democrat, am a demo

an institution which is in violation of human

' A Grosi OUTRAGE. We understand, says
the Lancaster Tribune, that the Superintendent
has notified the Phoenix Line (ow ned by Gener
al Miller and others) that hereafter they will
not be permitted to run their Passenger Car
with the Fast Line on the Columbia and Phila
delphia Railroad. The reason given for this
base attempt to prevent any thing like fair
j competition on the road is, that the addition of
the car of the Phoenix linn makes the train too
large and prevents the dilivery of the mail wi!h- ;
in the stipulated time. All this is mere subter
fuge, intended to gloss over the real object of
those who control the road. It will he difficult
to make people believe that in this age of im
provement a locomotive cannot be found of
sufficient capacity and speed to haul a train con
sisting of three or four Passenger Cars.

The Gold —Health qf the Emigrants—Troubles an
ticipaled bit ween the Americans mid, Spaniards.
The Now York Tribune publishes news from
California, 16 days later, by the steamer Pana
ma, received through Mazatian, Mexico, and
by the steamship Severn, at Mobile. It does
not add much to the amount of information pre
viously received, but is satisfactory in showing
that the yield of gold was steady, and though .
there was, as a matter of course, much disap- j
pointinent among individuals, the general result
was highly satisfactory. It is estimated that
the average product of all the mines together,
thus far, since the beginning of the season, has
been $2,00(1,000 per month, and there was
thought to be no doubt of its continuance at the
same rate of abundance. No change is quoted
in the prices either of gold or merchandise.
The health of the population, both at the
mines and elsewhere, is generally good, and
neither cholera nor any other serious malady is
reported as having made its appearance.
The jealous, unfriendly feeling which has so
long been in existence between the Americans
and South Americans of Spanish origin, has at
last approached a crisis, and by the next an ival
we may expect to hear of a grave collision, at
least if the party warned off display anything
like a manlv spirit. The Americans have de
termined that the Mexicans and Chilians who
arc at the mines, shall no longer enjoy the priv
ilege of digging out the riches of the earth, and
have taken deliberate measures accordingly.—
All companies of these nations who ha\e come
organized to work for the season, with the in
tention of returning to spend the winter and wet
season at home, have been informed that their
presence will ro longer he*tolerated, and have
received positive orders to leave the gold region
and not return.
The order to evacuate allows a fixed time,
sufficient for the retiring parties to make all
necessary preparations. The Americans seem,
from our information, to have proceeded very
calmly about it, and up to the 18th no disturb
ances whatever had taken place; they were
waiting fur the expiration of the allotted period,
after which, should the rejected adventurers re
fuse to leave, they would set about making them.
When that moment arrives, there is in the na

Arrested for Larrrnv.
We understand that a young man, named G.
A. Gotwald, a native of Centre county, was ar
rested last week in Philadelphia, charged with
committing a number of robberies at different
hotels in that city, at Cape May, and other
places. The property stolen comprises money,
gold watch' s, and numerous articles of valuable
jewelry. The greater portion of the watches
and jewelry has been recovered. This individ
ual, who has thus been detected in a criminal
career of so lamentable an aspect, we are in
formed, has a widowed mother in Centre coun
ty, to whom the news of his disgraee will doubt
less be a terrible blow, and is otherwise most
respectably connected. He has been residing
in Philadelphia for soinc time. A few weeks
ago he was discharged from a large business
establishment in which he had been employed ;
and it was subsequently ascertained that he had
purloined from this store certain valuables, such
as shawls, &c.
Sealencc anl Suicide of a Murderer.
FREDERICK SMITH, who, it will be remember
ed, was found guilty of the crime of murder at
the August terra of the Court of Adams county,
and whose counsel had filed a motion for a new
trial, was on the 25th ult. again brought before
the Court, ami the application for a new trial
having been overruled, his Honor Judge Dur
kec accordingly parsed sentence of death upon
him. It is said that during the whole proceed
ings of the trial, although the feelings of others
wert at times apparently moved, the guilty cul
prit maintained a sternness of countenance, that
seemed to betray a hardness of heart which no
thing but repeated crimes could have effected.
After he had received his sentence he was re
manded to prison, to await the day of execuj
tion, when on the following Thursday he com
mitted suicide, by hanging himself in his cell.
He had made a rope of a piare of linen, part of
his bed-clothing, Ac., with which be suspended
himself tp an iron bar. From a contusion in
his face it was supposed that he had made sev
eral unsuccessful attempts before lie succeeded
! in destroying himself. It is said that he made
a confession before his death to the Deputy
. Sheriff and others, hut what its purport is we
are not informed.
BIT nt A SNAKF..—A young man named
George Keller, of Union township, Berks coun

under these circumstances: In endeavoring to
kill the snake, it had nearly disappeared in the
crevice of a rock, when he attempted to cut off
its rattles, and, in doing to, was bit on the joint
of the firigpr. 'With remarkable presence of
i mind, he immediately cut out the bitten part,
, and wound a string tightly round the finger to
prevent the, circulation of the poison through
his system. The bandage was afterwards cut
loose, and the hand and arm goon became enor
