which has, told more correctly the position and
strength Of the litre great

Each has been led on by a candidate,who re=
eeived the unanimous - nornination of his party;
each candidate put •forward,the p'rinciples
which he entertained ; and both have c discuss.
ed those principles before ' the people of the
.State. Great efforts have been made by the
leaders of the respective, parties ; the voters
have discussed the issues involved withoritre.
straint, and the verdict 'given is the result of
intelligent deliberation And intelligent action.
'No blind enthusiasm has swayed the •opin
ions or.dazzled the judgment of the Electors.
No issues have been forced , upon the people
that have not been "understood.-..N0 secret
currents tare worked an-imPerceptibloehange
in the opinions of the .public ; and the result,
—a proud one for the Democracy of pennsyl.
vania, and of thew_ hole conntry,—is as solemn
as it is, potential, because it is the expression
of the will of, a great sand intelligent, people,
acting , in the • capacity •of Self-rulers. • The
'voice that, has spoken silently, through the bar.

vra.t.En.—James Bichardson, the celebrated
and enterprising African traveller, died the
4th of DisOlitast, at a - small village c.alled Un

superiduced by intense - haat. His body, wrafe.

Borno'u haat given orders that all respect and
-honor shall be paid to theill-fated British
Mossns. Crtasa t—Mutability is stamped
upon all terrestrial objects.; and it would seem
that instability has long been taking lessons
from Natures, sys tem and laws. ' Now this may
all be well enough when improvements to en.
large human happinCss is the direct and only
design. Sameness•from year to year, in any
thing—in every thing, as well as in dress, pro
dices satiety; and an inkling arises in the hu
man breast for , something new, in mode or
fashion. This is surely not reprehensible, but
otherwise ; and; if caprice and fancy were not,
'and never had• been, allowed to thrust judg
ment and common sense one. side—if reason
had ever been at the helm—if the true means
of promoting happineis had all along been
sought, as in ngriculture and the arts--the
present generation had free from much
of that amount of deformity, imbecility, (ifs
easennd sorrow, to' which life 'seems to be
heir to.. Is it indeed too late to consult , rea
son, and. to correct errors ? . Shall grumblers
and jeerers,and those who make it their busi
ness to jest, to ,grin...and to squib at every,
change in society, without regard to merit or
defect, hinder that reformation imattire which
reason and judgment approve and applaud?.
Tie Whole design of Clothing, may be sum
:tried up in one word--happiness, or the corn
4Ort of the wearer. Sin introduced a physical
:change in our nature ; 'and, for the mitigation
of attendant trials and sorrows clothes' were
given, not to excruciate and torture, but to
bless. Has this - design' been folloWed out l
Is it.evenlmltated now ? ' In many respects
it is not. In men's attire; 'ease and conveni
ence is generally consulted. As the seasons
change, men chinigo the amount Of attire,while
women do not as much. Men cast off theirs
clothes 'tti tricot the circumstances.of exercise
and temperature ; - ,while such is the form of
woman's dress, withAecency she cannot. I
have seen, women cooking at. he stove, toiling
at the wash-tub and the wheel in mid-summer,
under that amount of cloth which men cannot
sustain and labor, in the shop or on the:farm.
The bulk, the weight and the length :would be
equally.opplesilve. Innll places, on all occa
sions and 'under all circumstances their present
mode of dress is exceptionable and improper;
and the more it is for appearance; as iiitfie_so
cial circle and at church, the worse it is. Just
contemplate, if you please, a young lady dress
ed in her meetingattire, bound-and. girted by

Death otHoii. Wni. E. Little.
We extract the following notice of the 'death
of this gentleman, from, the ipliet Signal GMs.
Eittlinnts'anOn OfGeOrP . e and Another of It.
B.' , l;ittleEsc 'of Montrose. Many of oufciti
zens ',will remember the deceased,lhough,for
the past twelivorifteen years he hae.resided
in Nciithern Illinois; where' it will be , seen, he
had became eminent in his profession, 'and
prominent in the affairs of the State.
...Ens. Doc.
"it is with' heartfelt sorrow and regret that
we have t perform the Melancholy - duty 9f
recording, this week, the death of our estima
ble fellow citired Hon. E.-Little..He
died nt his residedce, in this place, on the
morning - of the 30th ult., aged 34 years and 5
'months. . •
~His, funeral was .attended by. the .members
of the,Bar of this and some of the adjoining
counties;hathe-MitSons:and'Oddl'eflewg 0-f
this place had Lockport, both of which, frater
nities he was a member,.•accompanied his re
mains. to their last resting 'place.. An appro
priate :and eloquent funeral discourse, was
preached by Rev: Win. of
Charles, on the occasion.. The deep solemifi
ty which prevailed over the imniense_concourse
of people pre - sent, is evidence of , the high es
teem with which the deceased was regarded in
this community. ' " •
Mr. Little hadheenon,gaged in the praetice
of law in this, place, for the'past twelve years;
and had risen to an eminence in his profession
seldoni. reached. His brilliant and towerOg
eloquence, and grofound judgMent, rendered
him one of the first 'advocates in the State.
For Several years he represented this'Repre
sentative district in our State Legislature; and
his talents—his unflinching devotion to princi
ple—hie Sagacity as a statesman-,his magnan
imity, gave him great influence in. the body
of which he was 'a member. As a politician,
he was enthusiastiially devoted • to the cause
of the masses--a firm andlinwavering demo
crat; but his candor and meanliness in the.en
forcement. of his political views won the res
pect of even his opponents. It was impossible
to know him without respecting and admi
ring him—hence 'his popularity among all
classes. And, had - his days not been cut short
eventually,,he would have risen to the highest
honors in the State. - •
But, far boit from us to attempt to write an
eulogiumupon the Character of the deceased
at this time. We could his memory
justice it we would. We, have known him
long and :intimately, and to us his friendship
and sympathy has been extended in many try
ing scenes. And when we beheld his remains I
shrouded in the drapery of the tomb, and gaz,
ed fur the last time upon - his features, coldly
fixed in death, we realized the fact.that a near
friend had gonend that we, too, with the
more intimate relatiVes and friends; had reason
to weep over this afflicting dispensation of Di
vine Providence. s• His errors- 7 for all men have
errors—:were so trivial that thcy.will cease to
be remembered, while his virtueshis nobleness
of soul—his patriotism—hiS devotion to his
friends—are embalmed in th hearts of his se-
le his own stricken family the blow has fall
en with greatest force—the domestic eireld is
broken,. the husband and father hag been re
moved forever. His devotion and affection for
his family was oneof the most admirable traits
of hii character;—and what is there that so el
evates a man as the - tenderness of his domes
tic feelings. The bereaved relatives, - while
theywept, over their crushed prospects -and
hopes, have the consoling assurance that he
leaves an untarnished name,' the memory of
which will exist with the* history 'of our State.
In the death of -Mr-Little, hots forcibly'nre
,we reminded . that morality is stamped upon
the dwellers of the earth, How painful true
is the solemn , fact, that "All—all must die !" their :hopes and aspirations ;; and
how true that '• • •• -
la the %edit elite -ire ate Sri death." -
His deathleaves a blank in this community'
—in the . field .of polities—in the legal proles
sien of northern IllinOis—in the State at large,
which cannot well be filled. Peace to his ash.

The work on this road, having been com
pleted in the early part of the week, a train of
oars--containing .the President and Board. of
Directors—passed over the- line, from Great
Bend to Semnton, on Wednesday afternoon
lask—leaving the former place at 4 o'clock, P.
M., and arriving in Scranton at half past 5, th
same evening. rA,largo concourse of the-citi
zens of the Valley assembled at the splendid
Depot, to witness this first arrival; and as the
cars approached tho station '
they were wel
coated with the loud - voice' of the cannon and
still louder cheers from thecrowd of spectators.
During the evening speeches were made by va
rions gentlemen connected with the enterprise;
and congratulations offered between the citi
zens of Weitein New York and theLackawa
na Valley, in antieipatiow of the good which
was bound to result to them, respectively, by
means of the intimnte eonnection now openeil
to them, through the con+fetion'of the Lack
mann and Western' Railroad. And; indeed,
the importance'of this road to the' Mining in
terests and general prosiierity of the Lackawa
na coal field, will be incalculable,--as it opens
an entirely new .market, of .nuch vast, extent,
that all the industry -considerable as ; it is—
that is now employed in developing the mine
ral retiodries, whichlie in the bowels of our
mountains, will notbe adequate to:supply the
demand for. them, whteh Will - soon be eroded
in Western. New York..
We :understand the celebration of the open
ing of the road,- has been pcistpciried for the i
present, chiefly on account of the lack of nee:
weary accomedations ; tint that so soon as this
can be remedied, a general invitation will, be
extended to the 'citizens of the Lackaivault
Valley,,And others interested,, to unite in 'an
.excursion over, the road..%-earbOtidate 34 ans:
