GTOIIY enough for one DAY.
Our whole ticket is elected in this county.
Col. Curtin has 30,000 majority in the State
and the full it turns may teach 35,000. We
have done cothing-but rejoice since the elec
tion and wo are rejoicing still. and we are
going to jollify and work and work and jol
lify and laugh at the Locos packing up their
traps, from now until the day of the next
election. Last Tuesday determined the re
suit of the election in Pennsylvania in Nov
ember next. Curtin has 30,000 and Lin
coln will have 40,000. llnrrah ! Hurrah ! !
Work on !
American Renublicans of Cun'.ra Coun'y
one very important election is ovor—one
glorious victory won. Our gallant stand
ard bearer, Andrew G. Curtin, has been
elected by an overwhelming majority, des
t ite the efforts of malicious liars and con
temptable villifiars, whether they be the
Right Reverend, High, Honorable, Dignified,
conductors of Church organs, or the poor'
dirty, low, msan, hired liars who tell skull
and dog stories. Notwithstanding the "nig
ger congressman" charge, Hon. James T.
Hale has been re*elccted. After all the
fighting and trickery of the enemy our whole
county ticket has been elected. Thus far,
Republicans, you have done your duty.—
But there is still work for you to perform.
Another election is approaching. You must
now buckle on your armor and do battle
for Honest Old Abe of Illinois and for tbe
further success of our glorious principles.—
Do not wait for the smoke of battle to clear
away or you may lose many advantages al
ready gained. Go to work now and work
diligently until the election is over, in order
that we may have a man at the bead of cur
National Government, who bas at heart the
interests of tbe people. Then, and not until
then will we eeo and enjoy better times.—
Then you will not have to be idle and al
most starving, because you can get but litt'ia
work rmd no jay. Then the flames will
burst forth from the stacks of tbe many fur
naces which are now laying idle, and tbe
hum of industry will be heard, once more
where now dread silence reigns.
The demand for Caps and Capes for •
kVide Awakes which has been created by tho
different political organizations that are
springing up in every part of the country has
tested the enterprise of manufacturing es
tablishments, and tbe great manufacturing
city of Philadelphia has again taken the lead
in supplying the demand. The extensive
Hat and Cap Manufacturing Establishment
of MATTHEW BROOKS, NO. 130 Nortb Third
Street, Philadelphia, Las filled all orders
promptly and will continuo to do so through
out the campaign. It may be- important to
Country Merchants to know that this extra
demand upon the esiabiishment has not beer,
allowed to iwterfero in any manner with the
regular business of tho house, and a large
assortment ot Hats and Caps ot tbe latest
styles are now being prepared for Fall sales.
The energy and dispatch with which busi
ness is transacted at this house, ana the low
prices at which it supplies the market, makes
it rank deservedly with the first class house
of Philadelphia. Merchants who are about
visiting Philadelphia may regard this as " a
word ia season."

"Am Z Giles or am I not ?"
It strikes us that there used to be a party
here-aboutß that called itself Democratic, or
something of that sort, fe our memory fail
ing us through advanced ysars, or was there
not such a party, which held in some sort to
the rightful supremacy of Manhood over
Money ? If we are correct, and any mem
bers of that bygone party should happen to
be still alive, they may perhaps take interest
in tho fact that a Fusion Convention has re
cently bser. holden in Rhode Island, by which
an Electoral Ticket has been nominated,
which is said to make the Stats sure against
Lincoln ! The qualifications for a place on
this ticket appear to have been as follows :
1. Tobaye been never a Democrat.
2. To have been an "Algerino" in Dorr
3. To have at least §1,000;000 invested in
bank and factory stock.
4. To be willing to "shell out."
Having found four gentlemen who posses
sed the needful qualifications, they have put
them up. expecting them to buy tbeir way
through. But the calculation will prove fal
lacious. Rhode Island was thoroughly dis
graced as well as debauched last Spring, and
ia determined to incur no further disgrace in
that direction. There is not money enough
in her hundred banks to buy her Electoral
vote away from Lincoln and Ilamlin,— lT. Y
ag?" The Cleavelasd Plaindealer says that
several years ago, a lad, the son of
wealthy parents residing in Concord, N. 11.,
became fascinate, with the glitter of a wan
dering circus and ran away to join its com
pany, He was Bought for, was not found,
and was morned for as one dead. He be
came a skillful lider, and rose in bis profess
ion; Three years ago be was performing in
Mississippi, when his brother reccgsized
him and induced him to return home,'he be
ing still young. The reclamed man entered
Dartmouth College and was progressing rap
idly in lais studies, when a circus company
visited the village of Hanover, and he obey
ed bis impulses once more, leaving college
to resume his vagabond life. Tue other day
at Knoxville, Tenn., he was thrown from his
horse in the ring, and was killed.
THE METHODISTS throughout the country
are stirred ty the accounts of the hanging
of the R*ov. Mr. Beyley, in Texas, on suspi
cion that be agreed with John Wesley in
regard to the peculiar institution. Mr. Bey
ley was well known as a peaceful and devo

the mildest character, and ha would be
doemed the last man to thrust his views of

they were—upon any community. On his
removal to Texas a few months since, he
carried with him testimonials of his humility
and dovotion to his work. But he was a
Methodist. That in Texas is deemed the
equivmlcnt of abolitionism, and the devoted
minister of Christ, guiby of no crime, and
on tbe merest suspicion ibat he cherished
offensive opinions, was hung up like a mur

She was born in tbe state of Georgia, at a
place called Silver Bluff; bas a district rec

Lincoln and Hamlin on the Tariff.
Domocratic orators, with their usual effron
tery and disregard for truth, denounce Lin
coln and Ilamlin, as free trade men- Now,
if they really believe what they say on this
subject, it would be a strong argument in fa
vor of their support; for Democratic policy
and practice has always favored free trade to
the manifest injury of the working men of
But, let us see how far this charge is true.
Mr. Lincoln has always been a Tariff man.
His record as a whig is clear on that subject.
As a friend of Henry Clay, in 1844, he sump
ed the State of Illinois, and argued the Tariff
question in every speech. The Convention
which nominated Mr. Lincoln adopted the
12. That, while providing revenue for the
support of the general government by duties
upon imports, sound policy requires such an
adjustment of these imports as to encourage
the development of the industrial interests of
the whole country, and we commend the pol
icy of national exchanges, which secures to
the working men liberal wages, to agricul
ture xenumerating prices, to mechanics and
manufacturers an adequate reward for their
skill, labor, and enterprise, and to the nation
commercial prosperity and independenc.
Mi. Lincoln, in accepting the nomination,
endorses that resolution, and therefore stands
before the country pledged to the policy it
advocates. So much for Lincoln's free trade
Mr. Ilamlin in accepting the Chicago nom
ination, accepted that resolution and hearti
ly endorsed it iD the following speech :
"The objects desired by the Republicans
in the pending election, and tbe obligations
imposed upon our candidates, are, to bring
back the Government to the principles and
practices of its fathers and and to
administer it in the light of their wredom and
example ; to aid our commerce, to send it out
uoon distant 6oas, and to prepare for it ha
vens jn its distress; to infuse new life and
energy into all the productive and industrial
I pursuits of the country, for we must not for
i get that the proep rity of every country must
i repose upon productive industry —labor it is,
; and labor aione, that builds and navigates
1 our ships, delves our mines, makes music in
i our workshops, clears away the forest, and
| makes tbe hillside blcssom as the rose. It
t maintains our government and upholds the
| world in its prosperity and advancement,
' surely, then, it should challenge and demand
the rights of the Government it thus sustains.
To preserve the integrity of the Union, with
the full and just rights of all the States, the
States themselves not interfering with the
principles of Liberty aDd Humanity in the
Territories of tbe United States, outside of
their own jurisdiction, and to preserve our
original territorial domain for the home
steads cf the free—these are the great prin
ciples wb'ch we have united to advance.—
That done, our Government will remain a
blessing to all, and our country a refuge in
which the man of evety creed and every
clime may enjoy the securities and privileges
of institutions of Freedom, regulated only by
A correspondent of Tbe Constitution
writes from New York as follows :
"Lola Montez is stopping at Astoria, with
a kind friend, but alas ! in what a condition
of body and mind 1 She is not exactly an
imbecile, and yet what term will more clear
ly express her mental help'.bssness ? Physi
cally she is an invalid of a mslaricholly de
scription. A female friend of mine saw her
a day or two ago, and it was enough to make
one's" heart bleed to note her picturesque
iimniegs of the wonderfully changed woman.
Lola was costumed in a half night and half
morning robe, and she set in a pretty gar
den, her hollow cheeks, sunken eyes, and ca
clavaroua complexion formed a remarkable
contrast to the gay flowers. She was una
ble to utter an intelligible word, except
spasmodically, and after repeated efforts.—
Her month was frothing like that of one in
partial convulsions,and she wa9 unconscious
ly wiping it, as little boys do, by drawing it
across the sleeve ot her dress. In fact, she
had the strange, wild appearance and be
havior of a quiet idiot, and is evidently lost
to all further interest in tbe world around
her, and its affairs. And so ends her event
ful history !"
DELAWARE, —The news from the little
State of Delaware is most encouraging. The
Peninsular Neics and Advertiser says:
" Lincoln is making great gains through
out tbe State, and it is now becoming abso
lutely certain that be alone of all tbe other
candidates can take the State from Breckin
ridge. In view of tbe fact that Lincoln's
election by the people is an unalterable cer
tainty, and that no other candidate can pos
sibly be electod, it is the beet policy for air
the opponents of Breckinridge Bnd disunion
to unite upon Lincoln, and thus secure the
electoral vote of the State, beyond a doubt,
for the man who is to be our next President.
Lincoln is just the man fer the times, and it
almost seems that Providence ha 3 raised him
up just at this time to save the country from
the wreck and ruin of a depraved Sham-De
mecracy. Old Sussex is coming 1 and tbe
way the Lincoln vote in that good old coun
ty will open the eyes of old fogies will be a
caution. Many of tbe largest slaveholders
are eutbusiastic Republicans,- and even in
that county they are almost ready to demand
a clean Rspublican ticket. Old Fogies wll
hear thunder from Sussex in November.—
Look out for it!
K£i"" Advices from Utah have been receiv
ed to September Btb. Tbe weather had been
favorable for harvesting, and tbe bountiful
crops have been safely secured. Wheat and
oats could be bought, in some instances, for
one dollar, though tbe nominal price in trade
is higher. A considerable amount of grain
was being transported, on speculation, to
Pike's Peak. The agricultural societies
throughout the Territory were making prep

ZsSf A writer in The Southern Confedera
cy gives a picture of what will happen when
Mr. Yancy's revolution is precipitated.—
Among other disagreeable things the follow"
ing will take place:
"The wise man of tbe South, Alexander 11.
Stephens, will be dragged to the guillotine,
and his head will roll in the gutter and float
in a stream of human blood. Our Glenns,

1 Of Walker's capture on the Rio Negro we
1 have the following additional from an au-
I thoritative source. The party sent up the

Fire and Thief-proof Chests.
For the benefit of our business men we
copy the following from the Williamsport
" Tbe manufacture and sale of fire and
thief proof chests has become a busiuess
of immense magnitude; and although
confined chiefly to one leading house in
Philadelphia. Safes of Philadelphia man
ufacture are now found in every pare of the
country. Tbe great amount of security which
is realized at so trifling a cost makes it a
matter of immediate interest to every pru
dent business man. A certain degree of sen
cunty can be had by insurance, but tbe best
insursnce policy is imperfect where the
books and valuable papers are at tbe mercy
of the devouring element; and this fact is so
generally understood that no man who makes
any pretensions to being a careful business
man can afford to be without a proof safe,
and hence the great extent of this depart
ment of manufacture. It may be objected
that some " careful, prudent men" will not
risk the purchase of a so-called SAFE, which
in tbe hour of trial mu6t prove itself to be a
cheat—an imposition and fraud upon tho
purchaser —and tbe objection comes with
considerable force since irresponsible pa: ties
are engaged in the manufacture ot them.—
Every reputable business attracts importers
and tbe manufacture of safes is not an ex
ception. Parties even from other cities have
been attracted to Philadelphia by the well
earned reputation of Safes manufactured
there, and to a certain extent have brought
the business int) discredit. But tho man
who purchases from a house long and well
established, whose Safes have stood the test
of time, and whose integrity command the
confidence of the business community can
run no risk. And it may not be out of place
here 10 say'that MESSRS. EVANS & WATSON
are without a rival in tbia department of
trade. Tbeir sale-rooms at No. 304, Chest
nut Sr., always contaiu a large stock suited
in styles and prices to every demand. Tiieir
Safes have, wherever tested, added to their
well-earned reputation, and whatever may
be said of other manufactures, certain it is,
that EVANS & WATSON'S Safes are what they
purport to be, and he who seeks security will
not find it for n. less price elsewhere."
Vim, IXI. Meredith for Lincoln.
WHJ. M. Meredith, of Philadelphia, ono of
the most conservative and influential citizens
therß, in a letter just published, declares for
Lincoln. He says .* —
" I see no reason why we should not all
stand where all the people of Pennsylvania
stood together in 1820. I was a youth at
that time. It may be memory and not judg
ment that makes my heart throb now as I
recall the things that then happened. Vital
principles do not deeav with time among a
healthy people. Such a people hold to their
great Traditions. As I believed the oppo
nents of the Missouri Compromise to be the
truly conservative party then, so I believe
the Republican to be the truly conservative
party now, and I sympathize as heartily with
thl9 as I did with the other.
As to your Presidential candidate, I know
him only from report and from a perusal of
some of bis printed speeches. Judging from
them, I take him to be a largo minded man,
of great research and comprehensive views,
and of decided but wise and moderate opin
ions. He does not descend in the minifies
cf artificial rhetoric, the entanglements of
proposed ambiguity, or ttie extravagance of
political declamation. Perhaps these may
not b9 essential to tbe character of a practi
cal statesman as seems to have been some
times suppassed. But Mr. Lincoln appears
to me to have two merits, one of style and
one of substance, which more than make up
any such deficiency, if it be one. They are:
first, that be says what he means ; and sec
ondly, that he means what he says."
THE Montgomery (Alb.) Mail, after threat,
ening secession of the Cotton States from
the Union the event of Mr. Lineoln's elec
tion, gives this "pleasing promise to pay" to
those Northern merchants who Lave trusted
Southern men for dry goods.
"But in respect to the money due by our
mercbrats to the North. The North must
wait; it will bo paid eventually, but they
must wait until all tbe exigencies of our new
condition shall have been provided for—until
we are armed and fortified—until good crops
bring us full pockets. We are for paying
them every cent that the South owes tbem ;
but, in the contingency contemplated, South
will owe duties to itself which it cannot neg
lect. In the event indicated, our merchants
must hav6 an extension of one full year al
Surely, an exception should be made in the
case of those patriotic merchants who have
lately laid their buisness up on the alter of
their country" in endeavoring to save the

j figyThe particulars of another painful
I tragedy are published in the New York pa
pers. The principal of the affair, a young
woman named Josephene 0. Lyon, was oblig
ed to leave her father's loof in consequence
of the efforts of the latter to make her lead a
life of shame. Seized with the idea that her
father would discover her whereabouts and
take her home, she determined to commit
suicide rather than submit to such treat
ment. Accordingly, on Sunday evening,
she procured a revolver and shot herself thro'
the chest, inflicting a mortal wound.
