ifying intelligence of the prospects of our
worthy Farmer Governor, "-Old Joe."—
Ritner has ale aNs been a- favorite with
the Farmers of Schuylkill County, and
nothing but party trammels prevents them
from supporting him in -a mass; Now is
the time, fellow citizens, to throw off these
party trammels, which have been riveted
on you by a ,few deeigning demagogues,
for the purpose of procuring office. The
cry of "turn coat" is now shorn of its ter
rors—thousands are bursting their fetters,
and comity , out manfully in favor of Joseph
Ritner and the prosperity of the Country,
all over the State. It is more honorable
to be a "turn-coat" now, than to be linked
to a party, whose measures are now con
demned and 'rejected by the people through
out the whole country.

Reading and Philadelphia Rail Road.
—We have heard complaints with respect
to the charges for passengers on this rail
road, which we feel it out duty to state.
There are two passenger cars employed
on this road, in one of which the
$2 and the other $3. The difference in
appearance between the cars is blight-, and
there is no difference in accommodations.
This is the ground of dissatisfaction. It
is thought that s2too,is high enough fur
either, and if the Company are disposed
to make distinctions, it would be better to
provide lirditiaiy covered cars, and reduce
the fate in such to $l. By the : present
-arrangement,. the fare through isjust the
same as it was before the_ completion of
