We have all the officers elect, we believe,
correctly compiled, for the especial benefit
of our patrons. In some of the townships
the contest for the officers was close the

Republicans formed a ticket entirely ol their

nuccessful, they being rather largely in the
-majority. The party that oor influence was
with, succeeded to eleet a Constable, re
elected an officer for Overseer of the Poor,

passed off smoothly, and we hope to the
entire satisfaction of all those concerned.
