THE CONGRESSMAN ELECT.
Nearly all the papers are publishingthe name
of C. B. Curtis, Esq., as re-elected to Congress
ftom this District. This is a mistake. Mr. Cur
tis was not even a candidate. David Baeclat,
Esq., an Anti-Nebraska American Democrat,
has been elected by a large majority. Our ex
changes can make the correction.
v. OHIO ELECTION.
Ohio has gone American and Anti-Nebraska
by about Fifty thousand ! Never did any ad
ministration receive such a rebuke, as the pre
sent Pierce dynasty, iu the result of the elec
tions in the great States of Pennsylvania,
Ohio, and Indiana. The people of the North
have boldly and almost unanimously proclaim
ed their antipathy to thcxtension of Slavery,
and by their votes, have denounced the infa
jeous Nebraska swindle, thus sending Stephen
Arnold Douglass, with all his Presidential as
pirations, on a 'tramp to "the other side of
The Turnpike, as it is called, between this
and Curwensville, is in a most wretched Con
dition, and the board ol managers, whoever
they are, ought to be most heartily ashamed of
it. If some poor fellow don't get his neck
broke, this winteonThtThill this side of. the
New Bridge, or among the logs sticking iuthe

care of by Providence, than the ''Turnpike" is

.this road, over which there ia more travel than
ny other in the county, should not be repaired.
The Managers had better attend to it, before
somebody gets killed, or . they have to pay

T1IE KILKENNY" CATS.
It i3 amusing to stand back and look on the
beautiful fight now in full progress among the
Democratic organs, since they have been so
badly licked. The I'ennsy Iranian, thellarris
tiurg Union, the Patriot, ' the Berks County
Press," and a host of the lesser satelites,'are
birkinr and biting at each other, lite as many
. peaned-up dogs with kettles tied to their tails,
-while- the Ilollidaysburg, Standard is coming
down oa Cook of Westmoreland, and the 'im
mortal' Drium, like 'a thousand of 1 rick.'
Well, boys, "let her flicker," we're like the
1J woman when her husband and the bear
were fighting, we "don't care a dam aged ci-
- gar which licks." We presume they must sav
something, and we had rather sec them spit
t their venom at each other, than throw it away.

5 Among a large, number of other, things we
-, cannot avoid noticing three gigantic appies j-e-v
ceived trom Mr. Robert Lasnich, a lot 'of fine
Rambos' from. Master,. Editakd Irvin, a 'bag
full ef perfect scrougers" from Mr, ;W. P.
FcltoV, and "any -quaii tity" of .first rate cider
-' from "Mr. George Hoover.' These friends,
together with'all the others who have remem
bered us, have the warmest thanks -of -- the
whole establishment, and the d l's espe-
r "FALSE FRETENCES." .
- "We are accused of making -"false pretences"
in the few remarks we made to the .delegation
froEi Curwensville, oh Tuesday night of. last
Veek, in reference to the causes of Gov.; Big
ler decrease-majority in)iis owa County.
Wo raid on that. occasion, that the impression
existed among a large portion of our people
that the promise made by or for Gov. Bigler in
1851, to procure an appropriation to clean out
and remove the obstacles from the channel of
our river, had never been fulfilled. We do
not know whether such a promise wa3 made or
not, but we have, been so informed by someof
the most intelligent and Ke3pcctable citizens
of our county.
It is admitted, however, that such a promise
was made for him by some of his friends and
it is further alleged that the promise was not
only "fully redeemed," but "the appropriation
was actually made." This, in their own lan
guage, "is simply not true," and we challenge
them to show where there has ever leen one
dollar appropriated to clean out the channel of
the West Branch, under Gov. Bigler's Admin
istration. And whether there was or not, it
does not alter our position in the least, for our
allegation is still truei that the impression ex
isted among a large number of our citizens,
that ths promise had been made and never ful
filled, and that this was one reason why they
voted against him.
"The second assignment is," that we said it
was promised to the people of Burnside town
ship and vicinity, that Gov. Bigler would fa
vor the erection of Pine County, and that the
violation of this promise accounts for the large
vote against him iu that section of the county.
This they pronounce 'false.' If it is. the citi
zens of Burnside township must bear the re-
sponsibillty, as we received our Information
from them. We were told by several gent'e-
m.'S in- New Washington, whose names we c in
gire if necessiry, that in 1851, the brother-in-law
of Gov. Bigler, accompanied, if we mis
take not. by the veritable Daniel himself, and
several other members of the "Old Town
Clique," visited their village, and promised
them, trom the stump, that "if Gov. Bigler
was elected they should have Pine County.'
And we were further told, by thesime persons,
that neither Gov. Bigler, or any of his friends
ever took a single step towards the fulfilment
of the promise, but that he had "tooled them
as bad as Drum."
There were some of the local causes we men
tioned as accounting for Gov. Bigler's decreas
ed vote in Clearfield, and there are others,
with which, perhapsj the illustrious Daniel is
more intimately acquainted. For example,
the appointment cf Post Master in this bor
ough. How many votes did that take from
Gov. Bigler? We don't know whether he had
anything to do with it or not, nor does it mat
ter. The people believed ke had, and for that
reason voted against him. '
During the past week the papers have been
teeming with news of the fall of Sobastopol,
the Gibr ilter of Russia, enough to exhaust the
head and fancy letter of any printing office" to
set it up in the usual shape : "Terrible Bat
tle," "City in Flames,' "Fort Constantine
exploded," "Eighteen thousand Russians
Killed," "Sebastopol taken." And yet it
has all turned out to be the most brilliant
hoax, perhaps, ever known to the world, de
ceiving not only the populace, but the crown
ed heads of Europe. The new s brought by the
Baltic was a grand humbug. Sebatopol is not
taken the destruction of the Russian fleet i3
false, and Meuchicolf has not surrendered.
The despatch purporting to come from Omar
Pasha, proved to be a forgery, and a great reac
tion has been produced throughout Europe by
tho contradicticu of what all had hoped to be
correct. This news has been received by the
Anica. which sailed on the 7th inst.
ThelaUst intelligence we have of the Arc
tic catastrophe, is tbit Capt. Lvce, and uinu
others were picked up by the ship Cambria,
and carried to Quebec. The detailed account
given by Capt. Lie e is very atfecting. .When
the ship went down, lie suuk with his little son
in his arms, arose to the surface, and again
sank. Before reaching the surface the second
time, he lost hold of the boy, but the child
was furnished with a life-preserver, and arose
also, and just as the Captain was in the act of
reaching him, he "was struck with a portion of
the paddle-box, and killed. AVith the life-preserver
round his neck, little Willie, floated by
his struggling father, dea 1. Capt- Lcce, with
a few others, succeeded in getting upon the
paddle-box. from which, alter enduring the
most severe hardships, "they were rescued hy
the Cambria. Of the 223 passengers on board,
and the large crew1, scarc-ly two dozen were
saved. " - -

; THE CAUSE
The Berks county Press, commenting on
the recent election, give the following reasons
for the-defeat of Gov. Bigler, by the largest
majority ever given against any candidate tor
Governor in the Coruuionwealth. .-.'
; , In 1851 the Democratic majority in the
State was upwards of 20,000, ami in near
ly 40,000. The Pennsylvauian, under the ed
itorial head, and by letters received from all
parts of the State, week after week and day
alter day, announced that swarms of Whigs
were supporting Bigler and opposing Pollocs,
because Bigler was in favor ot religious free
dom, and was the friend of the toreiirucrs.
.notwithstanding wbichj- he js defeated by a
larger in yoaity than ever was given agaihst
a-Hif Candida. e jor oiervw-. . .-.
The election returns too clearly prove, that
the demagogues of the democratic party form
ed a union with the foreign voters and tho
Citholies to re-elect Governor Bigler, and
that they tunned a similar union with the so
called Know .Nothiugs, and against,the for
eigners and Catholics, to elect Mott Canal
Commissioner; each party however voting lor
their own caudid.tte lor Judge of the Supreme
Court. But wheu we see Governor. Bigler
traveling through the State and claiming cied
it for having reduced the State debt nearly a
million of dollar, while so much of the State
debt was paid iTby the operation of a sink
ing fund established before . he was serious
ly thought, ol'for Governor, and that he, while
Governor, instead of doing anything to reduce
the State debt, signed and approved laws that
authorized him to borrow more than two mil
lions of dollars, and actually did borrow the
money. The result is easily accounted for.
Add to this that he proclaimed the finances of
the State to be in an excellent condition, while
at the same time Le was borrowing money and
making new debts. His message promised a
reduction of the State taxes, while the action
of his administration kept up and increased
the State debt; he solemnly declared the le
gislative system, of embracing different sub
jects in the same bill and passing all inabatch.
unwise: and said that he would veto alt such
( b'lls, notwithstanding which ia 1853 and 1854,
he approved of three appropriation bills that
authorized more than euien jiiillunf of dollars
to be paid out of the State Treasury, which
bills enhanced more than a hundred diffe, tai
subjects and objects, some of which olight nev
er have ben sanctioned by a Democratic Gov
ernor. He professed to be opposed to new
banks , and in favor, of restricting old oues,
while he exempted stockholders from the pay
ment of taxes; he avowed himself opposed
to corporations, and in less than three yoars
signed and approved of .more- than six htindi el
laces, that legislated for corporations; he de
clared himself opposed to municipal subscrip
tions to railroads, and yet sanctioned by his
igiiature many such subscriptions, amounting
to nearly fifteen millions of dollars; he sug
gested to the legislature three modes by which
the Relief Notes might be cancelled, all of
them as tedious as the days are long in June,
when a destruction of them, as they were paid
into the State Treasury, .would have been
simple and etlicient. He never vetoed a bill
that took money out of the treasury, but inva
riably approved of all such bills. We might
refer to other official acts of Governor Bigler
that operated strongly against him, but those
mentioned were alone sufficient to bring about
the change in Berks county. Governor Big
ler was lor and against a prohibatory liquor
law, and w hen inthe northern part of the State,
he was opposed to that part of the Nebraska
bill that destroyed the Missouri Compromise:
in other places, he took nefther side of the
question. - We did not believe that Governor
Bigler could be re-elected, and therefore our
paper opposed his nomination tor a second
term, and advocated the nomination of a new
mau. ' We believe that the Democracy ol'Berks
county deserved a new man, and still believe
that with a new man the result in this county
would have been dilferent. As it is, let others
take warning by the fate of Bigler. First, let
every one be candid and opn, and not prom
ise all things to all men, and be for one thing
here, and another there, and smction no un
necessary expenditure of the public money,
a:id above all let no one boast that he under
stands the financial affairs of the Common
wealth and can so administer them as to prove
beueficialto the people, without, at the same
time, reducing the State tax.
Objections to the rcnomination of President
Pierce exist, as strong as those against Gov.
Bigler. We are opposed to his renominatio!i,
and in due time give our reasons, and be ready
at any time to discuss tho question with the
Custom House press, or any other paper that
the administration may buy up lor the. purpose.
We consider it tar better to begin in time and
prevent a nomination, than to forbear when
defeat is as probable as to be almost certain.
MORE OF THE REASONS.
Te Harrisburg Union, pays the following
compliment to the rcnnsylvanian, and gives
another reason for the defeat of Bigler.
That extensive gas macuiactory, the Penn
sy Iranian, has been doing an unprecedented
business for two months past ; but the light it
shed aoroad his been entirely disproportionate
to tiie number of cubic yards discharged. Col
umn upon column of editorial is dashed off,
with the speed of electricity ; the lines roll,
tumble, and swell along, whirling and frothing
its they go, "full of sound and lury;". but when
calmly - read and digested, they are found to
'siguify nothing. ' In fact, the broad columns of
original matter which daily make their appear
ance in that journal, are as destitute of ideas as
the desert of Sihar i is ol verdure. If intellect
could be measured by volubility of language
by a diarrhua of words the Pennsylvanian.
would, unquestionably; istind at the head of
the democratic press, and Col. John W. For
ney would be somebody ; but as it requires
something more than an aptness for black
guardism and a command of language, to
make a great journal or a great man, they
must be content to occupy -the positions, re
spectively, which the almost universal senti-
meutof the country has assigned them.
In Forney 's hands the l-mnaylva-.iicn is a
mere grinding niacjiine, in which he prepares
fodder for himself and friends, with ''the addi
tion of a 2!'h" seatterer, designed to soil the
reputations of honorable men, w ho would con
sider themselves deliied by his friendship, per
sonal or political. . Hanging on the skirts of
gr-Jiter men, w'uose. sense of m;ral propriety is
not very exalted, by pandering to their weak
nesses and vices, he has managed to rise to a
position which he disgraces, and to the exer
cise of an influence iu cert.tin quarters, w hich
is detrimental to the character and interests of
the party and the conutry. To the impertinent
interference of this man and Judge Campbell
m.the political atTairs of. this .folate, through'
their satellites in different quarters, we are
mainly indebted for the disastrous results of
the late election. ' '
The late venerated Dr. Sharp (himself an
Englishman,) was reported to have made the
following remark, during his last and only vis
it to his native country, to some one who spoke
slightingly of the statesmanship of . America:
"If you can jtoint m-t a. succession of as
talented and virtuous Sovereigns of England
as you find in the eleven men Avho have filled
consecutively the Presidential chair of the
United States, then I will yield." There was
no reply to this.

the people. We had just come" out ot a evil

sults, to our own land and her glorious insti

mentous priric'p'os involved in the late elec
tion, had given an; expression of their senti
ments through the "ballot i.ox' and a majori
ty had declared himself to be their choice.
It was not the m.in when the people chose or
rejected, but th2 piin-ij let which they advo
cated aud sustained, lie wished it to b re
membered, that, although he was now , and had
been identified with a Whig p trty. yet he did
not claim his election ;n a Whig victory, nor
did his Whig friends 'deenl' it ' such," bul'tti.t it
was emphatically a victory of the ' pecf-lc' ov'-v
the advocates tl principle which they could
not smction or support. To.. all alike Whig.s
and Democrats, the victory was to be sc.-it.el
as me rcsua 01 ineir own nanus, in speaking
of Gov. Bigler . he said, in substance. " "In
reference to my opponent in the canvass.. I urn
proud. to call Gov. Bigler my person i! friend,

how widely we may differ in our political view s
and opinions. No act of mine shall wantonly

Tho. defeat of J. Ellis Bonh un seemto:sSve
pleasure every where. The Cirlisle litral i.sixxb
his defeat j :is a wholesale calumniator iu his se
ries of voluminous addresses as chairmaa of
the Locofoco State Coremlttce,' alfords "the
most iivi-ly satisfaction. The defeat it' Bon
ham is tho finishing stroke, of-the gret Jri
r.mph, and is a result, which, wilTbe felt at
Washington. Although we have no disposition ;!
to exult over a fallen foe, we must say that no
man more richly deserves defeat than Bonham.
Not satisfied with the vile calumnies heaped
upon the Americans mid Wkijjs in his verbose
addresses, his labored eulogies Jtnd, fulsome
flattery of foreigners in his public 'speeches
during the canvass" were, if anything, more
disgusting" and outrageous.-But l.y this course
he liiaiJiclf was the greatest suilerer. So gross
ly did he outrage public oiuiou, at every pub
lic meeting he attended, in both Cumberland
and Perry counties, by his offensive disparage
ment of American citizens, that his insulted
auditors could not. restrain their expressions of
indignation. To 'none wore than himself, in
fact, do we owe the thorough rousing of that
deef American feeling which,1 by the voice of
its Omnipotent w ill, has swept him and his co
lilforers into political oblivion. His over
throw is one to .be remembered by political
demagogues forever. i?wn. - -'
