AVe announced by special Hispatch to the
KEConn yesterday, that Gen. Harry Allen,
of Warren, had been nominated for Stato
Eeuator (or this District, by the Republican
Conferees at Franklin, who bad been in ses
sion from Monday until yesterday afternoon,
balloting for a candidate, tbe strife being
between Bredcc of Venango, Miller of Jler
cer, nnd Allen of Warren. Tho delegates
from ertanpo bold steadfast to Brcden even
unto the end, as did the Warren county del.
egates to Allen, but at the last moment the
Mercer delegates dropped their candidate!
Miller and supported Alloa, which gave
Warren County tho nomination. The ro
Biilt Is not particularly satisl'actoiy to the
Giltillan clique, and the vary few fiicnds of
our Congressman in this county are cocsid
erably chagrined over tboir defeat.
LtvKt.Y Pr.u'E. It is said that people In

whether the world would be the worse or'
tbe better for it. We fea:- iho place fs "iven

Snakes! Snakes!. A horrible sight it
was to witness a young woman with a snake
exhibition, in our business thoroughfare
last evening, carrying around her neck 42
different kinds of living snakes; It is hard
ly necessary to add notwithstanding the
reputation our town has abroad, that no
one molested hor!
Uetubned. Our towustnuo, Jamo M.
Nolon, who so mysteriously and suddenly
disappeared, and apparently without ' just
caueo or provocation,'' during tho first part
of tho month, has accounted for bis strange
proceeding, by roturning homu a wisor nnd
married man. Wo give him credit for this
judicious step, and may he and bis live to
enjoy a long and happy l'fe.
