Thb Lczcrne Peojlb are having quite - r
interesting timB about thBir late election.

faction on ihe part of the Republicajn ; they
being rather the unfcrttnite ones. The

oot the entire army vote. The Democrats
were willing to receive such portions of it,

nothing," and ''nothing" it turned out to be.
The Republicans were taken op at their
own proposition, and it carried tgains!
them. Th e effect of that was, the Repub
licans all '"seceded'' from the Convention,
leaving the Democrats in session with the
fall organization. They proceeded to fill
"Dp-certificates, which no doubt will be re
cognized by the proper authorities, after
which those who feel agrieved may contest.
Tho Union says ' the people of Luzerne
have at last found out the true 'secession'
party." A few or all of the Republican
Judges assembled together, after they se
-ceded from the regular Convention, and
filled up certificates Tor their candidates,
they having counted all the votes, legal and
illegal. They had no idea of doing any
thing else before they went into (he regular
Convention of Judges; they had their pa
pers (their ordinance of "secession") al'
prepared, which had cost them souse con
siderable time and trouble

A moth kh Democrat Elected According
to the lastJFalton Democrat the Hon. John
Cessna, of the Summersef and Bedford Dis
trict, is elected to the Legislature, surely,
by a majority of 42 ever HoJseholder. Re
pnblican. This will be a sain of one Dem
ocratic rote in the House if the report is
correct. It is stated that the military vote
changed the result in Mr. Cessna's favor
John Cessna is an able man, and a man
of considerable legislative experience. We
should be pleased to see him made speak
er of trie Honse, and would feel perfectly
satisfied wiih the Committees and decisions
made by him, in that capacity. There may
be a good deal of troth in his election as the
Republican press have kept mum on the
subject; not a word having been said about
this district since the counting of the army
Editorial Change An editorial change
has taken p'ace in the Danville Intelligencer,
J. S. Sanders having retired and Thomas
Chalfant superseding. This paper has been
ably conducted for over three years by the
retiring editor, and we presume with pecu
niary success to himself. His snccessor, by
the way a radical and stanch Democrat, is
a ready and influential writer, possessing
sufficient energy and ability to maintain lor
the Intelligencer that high position and stand
ing it now holds in the Democratic ranks
This paper is one of the most straightforward
and reliable weeklies received in onr sanc
tum. Success to the new editor; also, to
Mr. Sanders in whatever persuit be may see
fit to engage.
News, since the capturing of Slidll and
Mson, and McClellan's grand review, has
been rather scarce ; movements along the
Potomac have caused no great consterna
tion among either the Union or Rebel party;
all parties appear to have kept exceedingly
quiet since the powerfnl and important ac
tion of oor troops down in South Carolina.
The taking of Fort Walker and Fort Beaure
gard, with the occupying of Beaufort, has,
in a great measare, put a quietus on ihi
Southern rebellion. This piece of work, so
nobly performed ty oor brave boys, has
fell like a cold wet blanket upon hut seces
$ion. Gen. McClellan will make another
important move on the "checker board,'' in a
few days, one that will eause the relets to
tear open their eyes still wider They must
and shall be pat don is the cry of every
ffae friend of Jhe Union.
The Intelligencer, published at Tnnkhan
cock, has suspended publication by virtue
of a writ in the hands of a superior officer.
This paper went its whole length for the Re
publican party aliiS Uuion. One of its ed
itors was aa applicant for a chaplaincy in
the army ; how well he succeeded, we did
tot learn. There are still two papers print
ed in Tunkhannock ; one Democratic and
the other Repabltcati in principle.

President Judge,
Ihe election of Hon. vv. J. Woodward as
President Judge of Berks county and his ac
ceptance of that post, will render a tempo
rary appointment of Judge for this district,
by the Governor necessary. Such appoint
ment will stand until after the next general
election, when the office will be filled by
popular 6uflraae. Five years of Judi;e VV.'s
term in this district are unexpired as he was
elected in 1856, but we beliave the Jude
to be elected next fall will nerve for a full
term of ten years, and not for the mere bal
ance of the present term.
We understand that the members of the
bar in onr district, without ilistinc ion of
party, are ic favor of the appointment of
William Elwrll, Esq., of Towanda, as
Judge, and that nearly all of thsm recom
mended him to the Governor for the place.
He is a good lawyer, and a man of high
character, and pleasant address. If the
Governor complies with the wishes of the
district, in appointing Mr. Elwell, we can
congratulate ourselves upon the continued
possession of an excellent President Judge

in his Senatorial capacity, appeared so anx-

who in his celebrated speech in the etiate
spoke of Southern men thus "we have got

most Republicans, he talked for money.
Like most Republicans, he is after the fleh
pots of Egypt A few weeks he made
a great parade of bis military prowess, and
gave many high promises 10 the gallant
men who had enlisted under his banner.
He was "going to lea! them to front tf.e en

placed the i.oble Wilson and his men near
Fairfax, right in fron. A warrior would
have teen proud of this position, but Gen.
Wilson was indignant, and forthwith re

On the 6:h inst.. the first anniverry of
his election, President Lincoln was bjrnt
in effigy in the city of ZanesviPe. Ohio.
Not for any bieach ot he Constitution, not
lor h s usurpations of power was thif in
digniiy ofleieil to the President ; bin im
ply for doing v, hwt be had a conttitut on-il
and legal right to do removing Freuotit
from the command of the Departmei I of
the West.
Th is removal is londly denounced by
Republicans and so. called Unionists, who
were lately blatant for the support of the
President in all his Hcts, as identical with
the support of the Govern'iienl and the Uni
on Had a mob of Democrats, when the Pres
ident suspended the writ of hthoi crp'ts,
or when he destroyed the freedom of sj eech
and the press and denied the right of peti
tion assembled tnmuttnously, and burnt
him in eJTigy. what a ye I of indigration
and vrath, reverberating across the conti
nent, would have burst forth from tho Re
publican and Ao'ition ranks. The cry ol
Treason!" 'Treason!'' would have been

The thought is startiing ! But time irhange
and the bogus Cnion savers chang with
them. Il is no uncommon thing for fana -

those whom they have once prole-sed to
love and worship, when they can no longer
use them to effect iheir selfi-h p.Kpo-es.
Certain Reput licans and radical Abolition

pretty large rebel force had been concentra
ted at Fairfax lor '.he purpose, but tha. for
some cause or other it had been abandoned.
He says that the officer in command at
Fairfax had heard that seven divisions were
to be reviewed by General McClellan.
The rebels, he says, are daily expecting an
advance movement of the Union forces, and
that they are hilly prepared to meet them.
He does not believe, however, that the
rebels will make a regular hland and give
battle this side of Manassas They have,
it appears, some pretty good fortifications
at Centreviile. Th capture and occupa
tion of Port Royal and Beaufort by the Uni
on fleet caused great excitement among the
South Carolina md Georgia troops.
If one half of what is said in the Hunting
don papers about the inspection of horses
at that place be true, the government has
been most outrageously swindled. . The

unfit for the service." The Globe Cdernocraf

in his lbrit, which wers consuming his alate and th

cured In weeks. Another was attacked by eeo
ondary symptoms lu his nose, and the ulceration had
eaten away a considerable part of it, so that I believe the
disorder Would soon reach his brain and kill him. But it
yielded to my administration of your Sarsaparilla; the
ulcers healed, and be is well again, not of course without
Some d!riiiration to his face. A woman who liad beea

from this poison In her bones. They had become so sen

cured entirely by your .-arsaparilla iu s few weeks. X
