The First Congressional District.
Ehere is no question that. Mr. Lemmx was
deprived of his certificate of election in the
First Congressional district by the fraudulent
alteration of the returns. Even ihe Republi
cans do not. pretend to deny that Mr. BUTLER
holds a certificaze of election procured by fraud,
and to which he is not entitled. ~ The case is
too clear for dispute. But. having procured his
certificate by disgraceful means, Mr. BUTLER
has, as yet, shown no signs of relinquishing it.
If he is an hononbie man he will not take his
seal. in the House of Representatives by virtue
of a. certificate which he must know is false.
But in the face of notorious facts, he persists
in holding on to the fruits of forgery, thus
rendering himself an accomplice in the fraud
by means of which Mr. Lehman is to be cheated
out of his rights. Party necessity is no excuse
for such conduct. Perhaps Mr. Butler may
take his seat in Congress, and perhaps his vote
may enable the Republicans to secure the or
ganixation, but this would only increase his
infamy. Mr. Lehman will doubtless obtain his
seat”. but he should not be subjected to the de
lay and annoyance attending a contested elec
The Reading Electoral Ticket.
At their recent. meeting, the Democratic State
Committee determined to recommend to the
Democracy of the State to vote for the Reading
electoral ticket in November. The defeatof
Gen. Fosrnn for Governor having demonstra
ted the inntility or impossibility of uniting all
the Anti-Republican parties of the State upon
a single electoral ticket, perhaps this was the
best. thing that the Committee could have done,
under the adverse circumstances, to preserve
the Democratie organization intact. All that
remains for us now, is to rally the party in
support of the regularly constituted electoral
ticket and give it the full Democratic vote of
the State. ‘
Before the State election the Committee ex
haunted every expedient to unite the Demo
crats of the State upon the Reading electoral
ticket, under the conviction that such course
afi'orded the only possible chance of defeating
Lincoln. Had this spirit met. with an undivided
response from the Democracy of the State, we
might not have sufi‘ered the recent disastrous
defeat, or be compelled to deplore the overthrow
of so excellent. aeandidate as Henry 1). Foster.
But a. certain set of arrogant politicians, deter—
mined to thrust Mr. Douglas upon the party
attcvery cost. and to endure no difference of
opinion upon the Presidential question, set- to
Work to produce discord and division, and suc
ceeded in inducing a. fraction of the party to
follow their lead. It wasthe duty of the Com
mittee to encourage union, and they left. nothing
untried to accomplish that desirable purpose.
The first proposition made at Philadelphia, en
countering some opposition,'the Committee of
fered a second one, at ,Crcsson, which was
eminentlf‘fair and just, because it Submitted
the question of Presidential preferences to a
direct vote of the party. But even this did
notmcet the views of the extreme Douglas men,
who would?» satisfied with nothing less than
Douglas or division. As they could not got
Douglas they chose division. Mr. Douglas
stumped the State, m’erywhere counselling his
friends against union, and pursuing a course
calculated to divide and weaken the Demo
erotic party, car-hen union and strength was
most required :23 meet the advancing army of
confident. and unimd Republicans,
. The result of this reckless policy is already
written in the defeat of the Democratic party
at the State eiection. The responsibility of
this repulse belongs to those who used all their
exertions to promote division in theDemocx-atic
ranks. Haul Mr. Douglas advised his friends
to union. and forbidden the formation of a
straight-out electoral ticket: and bad he directed
his great energies against. the common enemy,
instead of using them against the Democratic
pnrtyme might now he rejoicing over a splendid
victory instead of mourning over a disastrous
defeat. But he encouraged them to assist. in
the defeat. of the Democratic party—and so fully
were some of his suppor'e‘rs filled with theidee
that this was their mission that they wasted
their energies in tinkering up a straight-out
ticket, while others took a, short cut to the
» Republican camp by voting directly fox-Comm.
In YiGW 0ft!“ these facts. and of the uselesgnoss
.f making any further etforts to onneilinto the
alnightont Douglas party, the State Committee
concluded to recommend the Reading eiectomx
ticket without regard to the position of its
numbers, because it represents the organization

What. has become of the Straight-cut ticket
awn do not know, having heard nothing of it
since the election. We suppose that since its
special organ at this place has been discontinued
that it is now under the patronage and protec
tion of Forney, and will get just. as many votes
as he can influence, and no more. The blow
which the Ultra-Douglas men directed at the
Democratic party has already recoiled with
fearful force upon themselves and their candi
date ; for no man pretending to be a Democrat
will now‘vote the straight-out. ticket. who does

We have the official vote of the late election
from but twenty-seven counties, leaving thirty
six counties to be heard from officially. The

The Prince took his leaveof the Fifth Ave
nue Hotel. New York, on Monday morning,
about half past nine o’clock. Just before de—
parting he presented to the servants who had
waited upon him and his suite the sum of $5OO,
and also $2OO to be divided among the other
servants in the house. The party stepped into .
their carriages amidst. cheers from a crowd of
about 10,000 persons. The Prince was accom
panied by Major General Sandford and Collec
tor Schell, besides his suite, and in a few
minutes arrived at the foot of Hammond street,
where they embarked on the U. S. steamer
Harriet Lane for West Point. From the New ‘
York Sun we make up the following account of
the trip:
The Harriet Lune wore the British ensign at
the peak, the American flag at the main, and
t was trimmed with a large number of flags. As
‘ the Prince went on board the yards were
manned, and aroval salute fired. The Cunard
dock was dressed with flags, and the steamship
Africa. exhibited a. line of hunting from the
howsprit over the masthends to her tafi'rail in
honor of the occasion. The steamship Karim};
was also beautifully decorated.
Among those on board the Harriet Lane were
I General Scott, Judge Roosevelt, Mr. Heart, of
Troy, Judge Slosaon, Mr. J. 13. Henry and Mr.
When the Harriet Lone left the dock, there
were repeated bursts of cheering and waving of
handkerchiefs by the assembled crowd. The
whistles and bells of steamers and factories
joined in the farewell. Several excursion boats
loaded with passengers, followed the Harriet.
Lane, and she proceeded on her trip to West
Point. The banks of the Hudson were clad in
their richest robes. Their forest. drapery was
guy with all the variety of their autumn livery,
and as rock-ribbed hillside was succeeded by
mountain summit, loaded from base to top
with the variegated glories of the fading year,
the combined effect was picturesque beyond the
loftiest ideal of the painter’s pencil. The party
were greeted at every point, sometimes with
cannons, sometimes with cheers from large
crowds collected at the river side, or on the
roofs ofbuildings. The yachts and their crews
cheered lustily as the Prince and his party
passed by, while in a few instances. scores of
little children, in their holiday attire, were
piled along" the river bank, and waved their
little welcomes to the son of Victoria.
The Harriet Lane reached the West Point
dock at half- past 2 o‘clock, where horses stood
in readiness for the Prince and his party, who
were there received by Col. Delafield. A file
of U. S. ‘drngoons was stationed near the land—
ing, and thousands of people Were looking on.
The company, for so large a number, was
unusually fashionable in appearance.
The royal party mounted their horses, the
procession being led hymn]. Delnfield on the
right. the Prince in the centre, and Lord Lyons
on the left, tollorrrd bv the Prince’s suite, and
after them the stallr of Col. Delafiuld. and last.
the file of cavalry. A royal salute of 21 guns
was fired from the Point. The Prince was
dressed in plain dark clothes and black hat.
Deafening cheers from the multitude ofspec
tutors greeted the approach ot the Prince. As
the procession wound its Way along the hill,
the cheering and waving of handkerchiets were
continuous. Opposite the barracks, the cadets
were drawn up in single file, and as the head
of. the column reached them. their band struck
up “God Save the Queen," the Prince raising
his hot and bowing, while the cadets gave him
the honorary salute.
The processton passed thence to the resi
(lPllt‘e of Col. Delafield. .where the llnynl party
dismounted and entered. Here they were
welcomed by General Scott. and introduced to
a large body of officers, with many citizens of
the neighboring country, who sought. an intro
duction. No formal speeches were made, but
the party continued inside about twenty mi
l flutes, receiving introductions and indulging in
familiar conversation. At length they reap
pearvd, and headed by the Prince and Col.
Dahlfie‘d. went on foot to visit the various pub
lic buildingS, going through the barracks, the
library. the mess; room, and whatever else
goes to make up the military system of West
Pomt. After this, the Cadets marched out
upon the parade ground and were reviewed
by- the Prince. They numbered about 260,
am! may well be Supposed to have done their
b 9- Their appearance and cvolu=ious were
certainly (Eredltnhle. They were supported
‘ i‘w the engineer corps of the academy in fun
, orce.
After the review, the Prince and his friends,
with a large body of officers. went on horse
back to visit. Fort Putnam. a remnant» of reyo
luSiOhal‘y memory, abnut half a mile back of
West. Point. The royal parry dined with Gen.
Scott and a number of West Point. officers, at
Comns’ Hotel. and in the evening attended a
ball given by the Cadelfi. ‘
Yemerday the Prince proceeded to Albany,
where he remained Inst. niuhl as the guest of
Gov. Morgan. This morning he starts for
Boston, and will be received at the Roxbury
line this afternoon bya committee of the city
government, and the battalion of Light. Dm
goons, who will escort him to the Revere House.
No other public demonstrations will be made
in his honor until Thursday, which is to be
observed in Boston as a general holiday, all the
banks having resolved to close fcr the day.—
From Boston the Prince will proceed to Port.-
land. where he will embark for Europe under
escort of a British squadron, which has arrived
Tnx Years—The changes which have taken
place between 1850 and 1860 in the economic
condition of our country are very great. In
that period the gold mines have been discov
ered in California and Australia. In 1840 we
had $54 paper circulation to $1 in specie; in
1850. only 3 to 1; in 1860, less than '2 to 1.-—
In 1849 the product of precious metals was
$05.000,000; in 185‘.) it was $264,000,000.
The whole amount now in the world is estimated
at $10,000,000,000, of which six-tenths is
silver. It. was always supposed that a. sudden
increase in the quantity of money increases)
prices. This has not proved true, for in spite ‘
of the influx of gold. and in Spite of the repeal ‘
of the English corn laws, which has enabled ;
us to export immense quantities of flour and i
grain, prices in general are lower, and wages ‘
higher than they ever were before. Tables i
show that. prices generally, during 40 years, 1
were highest. in 1837, and lowest. about 1843. :
Flour was so scarce in 1847, that we imported ‘
$5,000,000 worth; its average price for 40
years has been $6.54 per hbl. The sale of tea.
has increased in 25 years from 13,000,000 to
30,000,0001bs.; the average price for that period
has been forty-eight cents. The cotton crop
has increased in 40 years, from 180,000,000 lbs.
to 1,800,000,000 lbs. A great demand for
breadstuifs from 1850 to 1857, occasioned by
railway labor, and the repeal of the British
corn laws, kept prices generally on the advance;
but. in 1857, on account of the abundant cvops,
the slackening of the shipping and railway
interest, and a glutton cot-ton market, a. down
ward tendency prevailed. Prices don’t. seem
generally to be affected by the fluctuations of
paper currency. In 1849 the bank note circu
lation was $119,000,000; in 1852 $173,000,000;
in March, 1858, it was $120,000,000; shortly
after which it rose to $156,000,000. The
balance of trade in favor of the United Statos
in the last. ten years is $02,058,884, although
our cofi‘ee, tea. and sugar cost us $40,000,000
annually. The consumption of notice in 1834
was three lbs. per head; it is now 8 lbs. per
head. Our exports of breadstufi‘s from 1850 to
1860 were s4Bo,ooo,ooo—Joumal of C0m
Rnrnssmxen Coon—A Quiet, Good—Natural
Parisian Thief—A fat, good-natured, quiet
looking man, neatly dressed, the very picture
of a good citizen living on a modest fortune,
was recently tried by the Tribunal of Correc
tional Police, in Paris, on a. charge of robbery.
‘ Generally,” said a linen draper, who came
forward to give evidence, “the men who steal
goods ciposed for‘sale at shop-doors display
great precipitation, but this man goes to work
much more calmly. A few mornings back, as
I was in my shop, I saw him stop at the door
and examine various articles exposed for sole.
He did so with the greatest coolness, stopping
from time to time to take a pinch of snulf, and
not. once looking round to see if he was watc .. ed.
At last he nnpinned the covering of a piece of 1
linen, and examined the latter with the greatest i
attention. I did not for a moment doubt that. ‘
he was a respectable housekeeper, and that he
would make a purchase. But I happened to be
called to another? part of the shop, and when I
returned he was gone. I looked into the street,
and, to my astonishment, there he was. walking
ofi‘ quietly, with the piece of linen under his
arm! I rushed after him, and said, ‘You are
a thief!’ ‘A thief,’ said he. ‘takc care what you
say; I am a respectable citizen, as my appear
ance p 1 oves, and a man of properly.’ ‘Bnt
g you have stolen my linen 1‘ ‘No, Sir,’ said he,
‘it is mine—there are plenty of men who deal
in linen besides you, and lam one of them. I
was in a rage at the man’s impudence, and
called him 'sconndrel, thief,’ and other names,
A crowd collected, and from the assurance he
displayed they were convinced that- I was ac~
cnsing him falsely, and they began abusing
me. But two of my shopmen came up and
confirmed my statement that the linen he was
carrying was mine, and on that. he was taken
into custody." “How many yards did the piece
consist of?” asked the President. “Upwards of
sixty, sir, and it must have been very heavy,
yet the thief carried it away with ease.” The
man was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment.
A BUFFALO Hush-The Nor-West”, pub—
lished in the Red River settlement, says of the
last buffalo hunt:
“ In the summer hulfalo hunt there were 500
men, 000 women, 630 children, 730 horses, 300
oxen and 95D carts. The bufialo first. appeared
in sight in the neighborhood of Bad Hill, about
sixty miles from the boundary line, and in a.
run in which 220 hunters were engaged. 1,000
buffaloes Were shot. The camp then moved
southwards, by the Sand Hills, until they came
within five miles of the Little Souria river, and
at this place they killed over 1,000. Here they
stayed awhile to dry their meat and manufac
ture pemican, and while they were thus em
ployed a. herd of 250 came by at a trot, run
ning their last race. They were all brought
down and converted into pemican. After that,
and up to the latest time intelligence came from
the camp, three small herds—one of eighty,
another of thirty, and a third of fifteen—were
destroyed and consumed on the plains. But»
falo growing scarce, the expedition moved back
to Devil’s Luke, where the more serious busi
ness of buffalo shooting was relieved by a bear,
beaver and deer hunt. This sport over—and
good sport it was, several grizzly bears and a
variety of lesser animals being made to bite
the dust-a council was held and a resolution
was pissed to go to the Coulenu de la Prairie
to hunt the hufl'alo, which was still wanting to
fill the carts. Mr. Chopin. a gentleman from
Philadelphia, and Lieut. Whyte, li. 0. R., M:
companied the party, and, for young hunters,
wexe‘ unusuuliy successful. Mr. Chapim killed
ten buffalo, Lieut. Whyte seven or eight-”

Smoumn PHYSICAL Punnomunox.—lL up~
pears that. n. wonderful physical phenomenon
was observed in the East Indies on the 14th of
July. At. the villiage of Dhurmselah, n. piace
about. 12 mileatvo the south of the Dhanladhn-r
mountains, the inhabitants, at. 3 O’clock in .the
afternoon, were startled by a series of terrific
explosions. which lasted about, three minutes.
A cloud had settled upon the highest, peak of
the mountain, and from that direction some
thing was heard whizzing through the air so
near the earth that all hands were involun.
tarily raised Io shield their heads. An instant
after, a hngeblack mass was seen to fall in the
direction of its path, about a mile away. The
spot .was at. once visiled, and an immense block,
apparently granite, covered over with a. pituhy
substance, had buried itself three feet and al
half into the ground. When dug out it was
found of an icy coldness, so that pieces broken
from it could not be held in the hand. Two
smaller pieces of the same kind fell within two
miles of it. The structure of the granite cor~
responds exactly with that of the mountains,
and as they are cavered with perpetual snow,
the icy coldness of the meteor suggested a con
jecture that the explosion tore it from the peak,
16,000 feet high, and carried it twelve miles
through the air. The question was to be scien
tifically investigated.
Omo. —-The Cincinnati Enquirer of Sunday says:
A few days since, Deputy United States Mar
shal Manson received information that a party
of six fugitive slaves, who owned service in Ma.-
son county, Ky, were living on the Lake Erie
shore, about two miles from Sondusky. He took
wiih him a posse of five or six men, and on
Friday evening, about. eight o’clock, he came
upon their quarters. They made a. most des
perate resistance, and shouted “Kidnappers!”
"White men to the rescue!” Sic. They were
finally overpowered, and although the Marshal
and his aids were pursued, and several times
fired upon by a. powerful party of whites and
blacks, they managed, by running with their
prisoners through cornfields and woods, to suc-'
cessfully elude their pursners, until they
reached the railroad track, between two sta
tions. There they succeeded in stopping the
down train by swinging a red colored lantern,
and, taking passage, arrived here safely yes
terday afternoon. The fugitives were taken
before a. United States Commissioner, where
they owned they were slaves, and were accorv
dingly remanded to the custody of their masters,
and are, ere this, safe at. their old Kentucky
Tm: MonMoNS.-—The New York Times says:
Judging from the accounts which reach us
from Utah, Brigham Young has very little idea.
at the present time of leaving the valley of the
Great Salt Lake with his followers, even for
the more genial climate of a Polynesian or an
East India. Island. In fact a revival of the old
Mormon spirit. seems to be going forward,
which is likely to lead to a more firm estab
lishment of the Saints in that region than ever
before. The Tabernacle, which for some time
after the advent of the United States troops
remained closed, has recently been once more
opened for public worship, and Brigham him
self hamngues the people two or three times
every Sabbath. Missionaries are also being
sent. Out to Europe and other countries, among
whom is the celebrated Elder Orson Pratt.
A curious ease of longevity is noticed in a:
letter from Key West; Florida, to the New
Orleans Picayune :—“The curiosity of visitors
to the place may le gratified by witnessing a
connecting link of by-gone times, in the person
of anegress aged one hundred and twenty-seven
years. She lives with her son, aged sixty~
nine—who owns her—in a comfortable little
house outside of the limits of the town. Aged
as she is, her faculties are good, and she walks
every Sabbath, a. distance of half a mile, to
attend church. I question if many other in—
stances of longevity, greater than this, will
have been developed by the late census.
DEATH rnom THE BITE or A Honsn.~—A few i
days ago, a farmer named Joseph Weeks, re- ‘
siding near Cincinnati, whilst engaged in clean
ing one of his horses, was severely bitten on
the left shoulder, the animal taking a large
piece of flesh entirely out, just over the joint
of the arm. The shoulder immediately began
to swell, the wound became extremely painful;
his neck and head grew large and inflamed;
and notwithstanding the e’fi'ortsnf his; fihysie;
