Betting on Elections.---This is one of
:he schemes of the Van Buren party, in
Pennsylvania, to secure; the exertions of
those 'who would otherrise be inactive
during the campaign. Large autos of
money are . sent in by agents of the Gene
ral Government and distrihuted among
partizans, for the purpose of tieing, bet o
.flae elections--one of these holds the tio :.
ney and makes the bet, while the others
interested in the issue of it are pledged to
exert themselves to secure its success.—
In this way, active partizans are created
throughout the , state, and it behooves the
Anti-Van-Buren party to guard against
the effect of this system, by refusing to
take au% notice of their banters. •
Important Intelligence.—Arrrnitxcern
AND LOCOMOTI VES I—The new board of
Canal Con )))) issinners have directed the
superintendent of motive power, on• the
Columbia end Philadelphia rail road, to
cause two engines to be fitted up for the
use of anthracite coal for fuel therein un
til otherwise directed. Tnis is an irnpor
tart order, but contains nothing mere than
what ought to have been directed to, be
dune lung ago. We are pleased to see that
the new board entertain sounder and more
enlarged views of State policy than their
predecessors. The Philacklphia Inquirer
says, " it will meet with, universal appro.
bation,mnd do more towards the introduc
tion sad consumption of anthracite coal,
one of the greatest mineral resources of
Pennsylvania, than any tneasure that has
been atte•npted for years.' We have no
doubt that if the experiment of using an
thracite in the state locomotives be fairly
made, it will be attended with complete
success, and supersede every, other spe
cies of Biel.

Within the present year, Governor Ritner
already paid off near three hundred thousand
tars of the State Debt The Inertias during the
last year was occasioned by the temporary loan of
•200,000, authorized by the Legislature. • With
regard to the temporary loan - authorized at the
last session, it is now secured, so that it can be
bad it it should be wanted; but the revenue from
the public improvements is so great, and so well
ianabanded by our Farmer Governor, that •only a
part of the loan will be needed, as the Treasury
is able to meet all the demands open it that will
arise from the sdbricription of steels anti:iodised
by the late improvement bill. The foresight and
independence of the Governor, which bayed
512.000 to the State in this small loan, must now
tie acknowledged by all.
Danville and Pottsville Rail Roatl.
We learn that Governor Ritner has sub
seiribed $50.000 to the Danville and Potts
ville Rail Road, the sum authorized by the
Improvement Bill „ passed at the last scasion
of the Legislature. We further learn that
Mr. Sharp, the superintendent, has pro
cured a Locomotive Engine, to be placed
on the said roadin a few da)s. The Lo
co Motive is intended to- convey coal from
the Shamokin Region to Sunbury, a dis
tance of about 19 milo. We copy the
following description of this region, from
the Lycoming Chronicle :
The town of SIIAMOKIN is situated
nineteen miles from Sunbury and about il3
from Danville, on the Danville, SunbUry
and Pottsville rail road, which is comple
ted from Sunbury one mile and a hay be
yond it. The advaatages the town' pos
sesses are—that it is in the midst (done
of the.finest felds of
meansal in the
Unioliat i
t has already a nof com
munication with the river, by which al
most any quantity of coal can be sent to
market—that its location is gopd in regard
to the procuring of the necessaries of life
—that it is healthy—the water pure, and
that there is' abundant space to build.
The Shamokin creek cuts the mountain
in a manner which makes the Coal easy of
excavation, the main rail read'runs imme
diately in fronyof many veins,lwhich does
not now render it necessary' to r bave lateral
roads—Coal run cuts the hill in another
'direction—Quaker runs insanother, besides
there are several ravines, whiah serve the
fittirose of assisting in bringijg the vast
defies of the region into Market.
The town itself contains now about 30
or 40 well built homes, and ii is supposed
about 20 more will lie put upon this seaeon.
It it expected that a locomotive. will run to
the river at Sunbury, probably twice a day
in the course.uf a month or six weeks.
