Ths Election. On last Friday, the election
for Borough officers canic oil in this place.
"o political jssnes entered into the contest
the principal matter at variance being the
"hog question." One party, upon whose ban
ner, teO' appropriately fastened to a dog-wood
staff, "was painted with brilliant lampblack, an
exquisite picture cf a "juvenile pig' tied with
a log-chain, were favorable to an ordinance re
quiring the impounding of all quadrupeds of
the species swine; the other, whose motto was
Root hog or Iie," held that in this land of
liberty, I'orkey had full right to run at large
and do as lie pleased.' 1 The day was a fine one
the sun shining. brightly high-tip in the
Rzure vault, above clouds about four fathoms
thick, which were showering down upon the
devoted heads of the combatants a goodly
upply of - snow the gentle" zephyrs were
r.vaying the trees, till oat of sheer respect they
bowed their heads to the earth and the atmos
phere whs redolent with the balmy breath of
old Boreas, if was a fit day for such a contest,
which soon waxod warm anxiety was depict
ed on many a countenance, and in some in
stances the controversy is said to have become
unusually spirited, though we wont vouch for
the accuracy of the report. At last, after a
hard day's engagement, tht battle was ended,
when it appeared that the anti-run-at-large-hog
ticket was elected. Wo rre pleased to be
ableto state that no blood was spilled or bones
broken. Titc onlv .iciul damage done fell np-
on somebody's olfactory organ, which assumed
a very rye (wry) appearance. Of course, no
body nose (knows) whose it was.

"W'-h-e-w! On last Thursday morning, we
had undoubtedly tho coldest weather that has
been experienced here, not only this winter,
bat at any time within the recollection of our
oldest citizens. At 5 o'clock the mercury was
between 3G and S8 (leg. below zero; at 1 o'
clock it was still 34 dag. below ; at 10 o'clock,
the sun shining at the time, it was at 6 ; and it
was not until near 11 that it rose to zero. At
11, the mercury rose 2 dog. above. In all the
short thermometers-tho mercury was cora-
pressed into the bulbs. Snch extreme cold was
calculated to test the nerves of sensitive peo
ple at least. As for ourself, wrapped in a huge
cloak, our feet sticking in the fire, with every
thing aqueous congealing around us, we were
pondering as to the probability of our having
be-n metamorphosed into a Laplander and
translated into the Arctic regions, and were
. beginning to speculate upon the chances ot the
north pole making fl re-wood, when our reveiie
was interrupted, and we were brought to recoz-
nize our own identity aud whercabosts by a
friend rushing in and hurriedly asking if it
wastn't "most d-awfullv cold !"

Caved-js. The roof on the new oflico of
VTm. A. Wallace, Esq-, was crushed down on
last Saturday evening by. tho weight of the
enovr which had collected on it. The top of
l:ie brick walls are somewhat damaged, though
perhaps not to a very great extent. There is
dinger to be apprehended f rom the large quan
tity of snow on roofs, and it might be well
enough to remove it soon.
The Sledding during the past week was as
good as ever, though the roads were in places
innch drifted, and for several days we had a
perfect rush of sleds, loaded with flour, grain,
pork, &c, from Indiana county. Sellers ask
$11 a barrel for flour, $l,7i for wheat, 8 cts.
for pork, and other things in proportion. For
expanded prices and tall snow driits, Clear

Tho other day we heard a gentleman from
Marietta tell the best anecdote of "the sea
son." lie siys that Dr. Kane, accustomed to
the extremo cold of the Arctic regions, had to
put on linen clothes, aud walked down Chest
nut street fanning himself, when tho mercury
was 5 deg. belo.v zero. Kane must cither be

pressure stories about him.

An Elopement in Illisos. A correspond
ent of the Chicago Press, writing from Tulon,
under date of Jan. CO, snys : There has been
the most intense excitement in our neighbor
hood the past week, occasioned by the elope
ment of A. Moncrief.Esq., a married man.with
the wife of Wm. Rose, on the 22d inst. The
guilty parties both resided here. Mr. Moncriet
has enjoyed, until the past season, the almost
universal confidvncii.br our community, as a
man of correct principles and as a gentleman.
Such has been tho confidence reposed in him
that for eevcral years past he has held the office
of magistrate, and other offices, and last fall
was the democratic nominee for representative
to the State Legislature for tiiis and Peoria
county, and ran ahead of his ticket. Xo one
trusted in him morg jmplicity as a man of hon
or and a gentlemen, th:in the injured husband.
Mr. Rose was, up to the hour of this unaccount
able elopement, a warm and unsuspecting
friend of Mr. M., and had stood by him as such
while others were abandoning him. M. leaves
a wife of irreproachable character,' a woman
deserving of the best of husbands, and a love
ly, interesting boy. She is left her alone a
mong strangers.but amid those w ho will do all
that is possible to relieve her in her affliction.
Mrs. Rose was a lady of fine personal appear
ance, of a good family and at the time of the
elopement a member of the Baptist church.
Her husband is one of our most worthy citi
zens, esteemed by all who know him. lie was
kind aud indulgent to his wife, too much so for
the proud, refractory woman who has so base
ly deserted him. Mrs. E. left three interest
ing girls, worse thau motherless. She took
with her a little boy. The father and his
friends are in hot pursuit of the guilty parties,
with the hope of recovering ti e child. Mrs.
R. managed to procure her husband to be ab
sent, that she might better consummate her
wanton enterprise. She broke the crystal out
of his gold watch, so that he would bo com
pelled to leave it at home as a pillage lor her.
SI.u rified his drawers, and took besides a
quantity of gold, all the valuable property
about the house of a portable nature. Mon
crief is supposed to have taken a considerable
amount of money with him, belonging to par
ties for whom lie had collected it in his official
capacity, besides leaving many creditors to
whistle for their dues.
Both parties had been mnrried for ten years
and upwards, and circulated in the best socie
ty. Mrs. Moncrief snys that there was never
an unkind word passed between her husband
and herself; that his conduct is shrouded in
the deepest mystery to her. She attributes
her soul crushing misfortune to liquor. This
ailair does not take an air of romance with us;
it?nocks us it grieves and staggers us.
Mrs. Rose left a bitter behind for her sister,
in which, after bidding an everlasting adieu,
she the heartless adultress "hopes to meet
them in heaven !"' The entire community
deeply sympathize with the injured parties,
and may God grant them strength to bear
their misfortunes, which now weigh so heavi
ly r.pou them.
Contested Election Case. Jhn B. Beck,
who contested the election cf J oh a CMGhee
from the Lycoming district, has been admit
ted to a seat in tho House, eight democratic
members of the committee having returned a
report in his favor. The report occupies
strange ground to our view, the gist of which
is as follows : It appea-3 that the general elec
tions in Sharon township, rotter county, wure
to be held at a certain school house, which
was sold in 1852, and the purchaser moral it a
few rods from its former location. Or. the
morning of the general election in 185, the
purchaser informed one cf the officers that he
would not permit the election to be hold there,
owing to sickness in his family. The oificvrs
accordingly removed the polls to the next but
actual school house ; and on this ground eight
democrats threw out the vote of an entire elec
tion district, and thus defeated Mr. MGheo.
