THE DEMOCRATIC WATCHMAN.—We have
received the first number of a new Democra
tic paper with the above title just commen
ced at Bellefonte, Centre co., Pa., by HENRY
HAYS, Esq. Centre has been without an
English Democratic paper for a year past—
the "Democrat" was bought over to the dark
lantern party, and is now doing the bidding
of the abolition leaders of that party. We
have learned from Rev. Mr. Meek, that the
"Watchman" commenced with a subscrip
tion list of upwards of fifteen hundred sub
stantial subscribers, and that the Democrats
are moving in solid column to rid the county
of Know Nothingism at the next election.—
That they will accomplish their purpose we
have not a. doubt. The "Watchman" is
printed on new type, and is ably conducted.
The Editor says "the paper will earnestly
and unflinchingly advocate the men and
measures of the Democratic party, and op
pose Know Notbingisrn, Abolitionism, and
every other ism so contrary to the genius
and spirit of our republican institutions."—

KENTUCKY HOG TADEL—The Louisville
Times estimates that at least one hundred
thousand more bogs will be killed in that
State this season •than were killed in that
State last year with an average increase in
weight of about 20 per cent. Up to Saturday
evening last 8339 had been killed, in Louis
ville, where the prices then were $6 50 a 6 85

20,000 or 25,000 hogs, by dealers, at $5 gross
equal to about $6 85
_from the hooks. On
Green river, in Kentucky, extensive prepara
tions are made for slaughtering. At Bow
ling Green alone it is expected that 20,00 a
will be killed, and about 10,000 at . other
points on the river. The number killed on
Green and Cumberland rivers will be consid
erably in excess of last year.

Meeting of Congress.
CongresS assembled in Washington on
Monday. The Presidents Message will be
read to-day and laid before our readers next
week. Parties 'in the . House stand as follows:
Democrats, 81; Southern Whigs, 9; Republi
cans, (dr Abolitionists,) 68; Know-Nothings :
- 75. •0
The following we find in the Washington
Union of Saturday:
The Democratic members of the House of
Representatives assembled last evening, in
the Hall of the House—Hon. George W.
Jones, of Tennessee, in the Chair, and W. H.
English, of Indiana, and TEinafas J. Ruffin,
of North Carolina, Secretaries.
Tne following resolution, introduced by
HOn. J. Glancy Jones, of Pennsylvania, was
unanimously adopted :
Resolved, That the Democratic ,
of the House or Representatives, though in a
temporary . minority in' this body,-deem this
a fit occasion to tender to their fellow citizens
of the whole Union their heartfelt con,gratu
lotions on the triumph, in the recent elections
in several of the Northern, Eastern and Wes
tern, as well as Southern States, of the prin
ciples of the Kansas-Nebraska bill, and the
doctrines of civil and religious liberty which
have been so violently assailed by a secret
political order, known as the Know-Nothing
party; and though in a minority, we hold it
to be our highest duty to preserve our orga
nization, and continue our efforts in the
maintenance and defence of those principles,
and the constitutional rights of every section
and every class of citizens against their op
ponents of every description,..wheiher the so
called Republicans, Know-Nothings, 'or Fu
sionists; and to this end, we look with confi
dence to the support and approbation of all
good and true men—friends - of the Constitu
tion and the union throughout the country.
The meeting then proceeded to select can
didates for the various offices connected with
the organization of the House, when the fol
lowing gentlemen were nominated by accla
mation, viz :
For Speaker—Hon. W. A. Richardson, of
For Clerk—A. D. Banks, of Virginia.
For Sergeant-at-Arms—A- J. Glossbrenner,
For Doorkeeper—Z. W. McKnew, of Ma
For Postmaster—John M. Johnson, of Vir
For Public Printer—Cornelius Wendell, of
Cot. Richardson had received the 'distin
guished honor of a nomination for Speaker,
by his firm support of the Nebraska till du
ring the exciting con test of 1854; and it can
not but be gratifying to his numerons friends
that he was nominated by a unanimous vote
in" the Democratic caucus. His boldness,
courage, and constancy in that hour of trial,
and his eminent capacity for the position,
will render him worthy of the persevering
support of the Democra.cy'of the Union.
The Democracy in Congress are now in
the field, with their candidates and their
principles boldly announced to the world.—
The unanimity anti cordiality which marked
the proceedings of the Democratic caucus are
the best indications of coming success, and
we hope that the example will be followed in
the campaign of 1856.

The Pegnsylvania Farm Journal.
We refer our readers to the advertisement
of the publishers of this valuable monthly pe
riodical in . another column. A new volume
commences with the January number.
The Publishers in the number of the pres
ent month, say :
"With the present number closes the fifth
volume of the Far:n Journal—and in asking
our subscribers to renew their patronage for
the ensuing year, we are aware that we do it
in the face of the fact that much dissatisfac
tion has been given many of them during the
twelve months that are just passed, in conse
quence of a want of punctuality in the
monthly issues, and the non-answering of
letters. And although we are not responsible
for any mismanagement or neglect of duty
prior to the ninth month,'yet we wish our
readers distinctly to understand that we are
by no means blind to the fact that such de
fects did exist to a considerable extent, at the
time we assumed our present duties; and
that it is now, and shall continue to be, our
utmost endeavor to prevent the recurrence of
them hereafter. Our facilities for publishing
the Journal are now so ample, that we are
fully prepared to say that nothing less than
circumstances absolutely bey3nd control,
shall prevent us from issuing it regularly on
the first of every month ; and we are led to
hope our readers will find that we mean pre
cisely what we say. We shall also intro
duce into the coming volume several new
features, of interest to our readers; such as
correct and reliable market reports, and ac
counts of new patents of such inventions as
are connected with agriculture and the do
mestic arts, &c."
"In our last number it was announced that
the editorial department of the Farm

of A. M. SPANCLER, since then we have been
fortunate in securing the services of DAVID

The Results . in N. Orleans—Outrageous
The New Orleans papers are full of the de
tails of the election news in that State, which
we omit as destitute of interest, the telegraph
having already advised us that the Democrats
had -succeeded by a decided majority. In
New Orleans the Know-Nothings have a
nominal majority of some three or four hun
dred, but they secured it by the most infa
mous conduct. The voters were threatened
and intimidated, naturalized citizens were
frightened and driven from the polls, two
men were shot and killed and five others bad
ly wounded, and yet, after all this, finding
themselves still in the minority, and deter
mined to succeed the K. N.'s proceeded to the
Seventh and Ninth Districts, which were
known to have given decided Democratic
majorities; and seizing the ballot boxes, poll
books and tally lists, trampled.,them under
foot and' then burned them. The votes, how
ever, had partially been counted, and the offi
cers of election would certify accordingly.
Exclusive of these two districts, Elufty, the
Know-Nothing candidate for Sheriff, has sev
en majority. With them Bell, his Demo
cratic competitor, is elected by upwards of
300 majorty. Excluding the votes in the
broken boxes, three or four Know-Nothings
are returned to the Legislature. The full
vote, however, elects Democrats by decisive
majorities. The New Orleans Bee, a strong
Know Nothing paper, denounces this outrage
in the very strongest terms.
Two Singular Accidents on the Philadeln
phia and Reading Railroad.
On Tuesday morning last, at about half
past 8 o'clock, Mr. Jeremiah Jacoby was
walking on the track, about half a mile be
low Hamburg Becks county, when the Potts
ville train 0 07 passenger cars was approach
ing, he suddenly changed over to the other
track, at the very minute when the Philadel
phia Express train passed by, and be was
caught between the cars, and instantly killed.
He was carried to his home, a short_distance
from the spot where the : accident happened;
and oneof his neighbors, I\lr. Phillip D. Mil
ler, who was on his way to town, stopped in,
and assisted in arranging the corps, and then
proceeded to town, and gave an account of
the sad occurrence, charging the victim with
too much carelessness, and felt assured that
no such accident should ever befall him, as
he always exercised too much precaution.
Mr. Miller, after having finished his busi
ness in town, proceeded homewards with his
horse and wagon, and, when arriving at the
house of the unfortunate Jacoby, a number of
individuals (who were collected together on
accouat of the accident) beckoned and hol
lowed to him not to cross the railroad track;
but he moved forward and gained the other
side, when his horse backed his wagon on the
track, and he was caught by the cow-catch
er, and was so much , mutilated that he died

negligence, and was so sure of his safety,

LARGE EXPORTS OF BREAOSTUFFS TO
GREAT BRlTAlN.—Baltimore, Nov. 30.
There have been large foreign exports of
breadstuffs frr.fin here this week, mostly to
Great Britain, including 35,330 barrels ,of
flour, 24,189 bushels of wheat, and 9,125
bushels of corn.
A NATIONAL HOLIDAY.—The New York
Commercial is in favor of having Con gress de
clare the twenty-second day of February,
(Washington's Birthday,) to be .a national
holiday; as a national memorial that would
be as perpetual as the country to which his
patrotism gave birth and continuity. The
suggestion of the Commercial is very proper
and patriotic, but the power of Congress to
act in such a matter, further than to make
the recommendation that the tray should be
so honored, is very doubtful.
RIOTING AT LAND SALES IN WISCONSIN.—
The land sales at Winona, Wisconsin, on the
27thult., were attended by about 1200 per
sons, and much excitement. A serious diffi
culty occurred, in which two men were shot.
A settler on a piece of ground persisted in
bidding for the same though in defiance of
the threatened peril of being thrown into the
river if he did. On the attempt to put the
threats in execution, he drew a revolver and
shot two of his assailants.
FOND OF FLESII.-•• The cannibals of the South
Sea Islands have recently been feasting on
some teachers sent among them. The report
made by a. missionary ship, just arrived at New
Yorki says :
"On reaching the Island of Fate, the distress..
ing news Was brought on board that some of the
teacher, with their wives, left there on the last
voyage, has been barbarously murdered. Only
nineteen days after =hey were landed, under the
most cheering circumstances, the two Raraton
gan teachers and their wives were murdered, to
fdrnish materials for a horrid cannibal ban
quet. The real reason of this sudden act of
cruelty could not be learned-"

Facts Plainly Told..
One of our cotemporaries gives the follow
ing facts plainly told :---Highway robberies of
an aggravated character, are occasionally
committed, but how some of them come to be
perpetrated, does not reach the public eye or
ear. A recent case will serve to show.' A
country merchant, of good standing, comes to
town, and brings several hundred dollars with
which to make purchases. Inasmuch as he
does not visit the city often, he concludes
that he will two birds with one stone,
and see the elephant at the same time. After
his arrival he keeps himself very straight for
a day or two, and then starts off on a cantico.
He goes to the several places of amusement,
and at one or the other of them falls in with
a friend, who volunteers to show him the
sights. This friend not unlikely has an as
sociate, who is soon introduced to our coun
try merchant, and by the aid of sundry pun
ches. mint juleps, and similar beverages, the
bond of friendship is knit between them, and
they swear eternal friendship. Time passes
on, and midnight finds the friendly trio way
down in the suburbs, and the merchant, in
the excess of his gratitude for the disinteres
ted kindness of the gentlemen insists upon
treating at every public house, until he be
comes unconscious of what is passing about
him. On they go, and when an obscure spot
is reached, the two friends prepare to show
how far their friendship is disinterested. A
slung-shot is drawn from the poeket of one of
them, and the other holds himself in readi
ness to rid the stranger of what superfluoui
change he has.. The next moment the coun
try merchant finds himself on all fours, the
blood streaming from his forehead, and in an
other his watch and money are gone, and his
two friends •with them. The merchant lies
in a state of .insensi bi I ity until' the police come
across him, aod he is taken to the station
house. When he recovers he finds that the
two gentlemen who were so kind to him were
not so kind after all, and two or three days
of solitude and reflection satisfies him that
seeing the elephant is not the thing it is crack
ed up to be, and he goes home a wiser
though a poorer man. This is no fancy
sketch. A case precisely similar occurred in'
this city only a few days ago. .The mer
chant has not fully recovered from the injriries
he received, and it is probable that he will
take home with him some severe, bruises, if
not a cracked head.
A Grand Railway Scheme,
A grand Railway from New York to New
Orleans is a project which -has, lately been
mooted a good deal in some quarters. The
project is to connect the links °fronds already
built, and form a great chain from New York
city, via Easton, Harrisburg, Carlisle, Hagers
toi vn, Winchester, Abingdon, Knoxville,
Tennessee, Tuscaloosa, Mobile and New
Orleans, and also branching from Knoxville
to Charleston and Savannah, and from Hagers
town to' Cincinnati and St• Louis. in favor
of this route, it is urged that the Camberland
Valley extends from the Delaware, at Easton,
without a crossing ridge, through Pennsylva
nia, Virginia, Tennessee, down into the level
regions of south Alabama, presenting a direct
and favorable route for a railroad from New
Orleans to Philadelphia and New York.—
Throughout its whole •extent it is fertile and
populous. Easton, Harrisburg, Carlisle, Cham
bersburg, Hagerstown, Winchester, Lexing
ton, Fincastle, Abingdon, Knoxville, Tusca
loosa, and many other- towns and villages
are situated in it. Where a road constructed
through it, between the great cities of the
North and South-West, it would become one
of the most crowded thoroughfares in the
country. It is already, traversed to some ex
tent, by detached roads in the several States
through which it passes.
The distance horn New York to Easton is
72 miles, and from Easton to Harrisburg 96.
By this route the distance would be shorten
ed from New York to Harrisburg some thirty
miles. There would be a saving of 50 miles
from New York to Hagerstown, with no tran
shipments or ferries to cross. A road is al
ready in operation sixteen miles beyond Eas
ton, and from thence to Harrisburg, two com
panies are organized and have commenced
the work. In less than two years therefore,
the route will be complete from Chambers
burg to New York.
MILITARY AND SCIENTIFIC CHARACTER OF
RUSSIAN OFFICERS.—The London Times of
the 9th inst., in one of its leading editorials,
expresses itself in the following terms of the
superior efficiency of the officers of the Rus
sian army :
Nothing has come out more clearly in the
course of the war than the high military and
scientific character of the Russian officers.—
Through a trial of unexampled severity they
have shown themselves in every way worthy
the confidence of their master and of the repu
tation of a great military monarchy. Ardent
in attack, undaunted in retreat, full of skill,
eneigy, and resource under all circumstarr—
ces, masters of the three languages of the
three beligerent Powers, it makes one shud- ,
der to reflect what such a band of officers
might accomplish if supported by troops
worthy of such leaders. The Russian army,
like our own, is officered by gentlemen, but by
gentlemen who have not merely the rank and
the courage of their class, but its education
and its acquirement. While poor General
Simpson cannot even attempt a single word
of French, a vast number of the officers of the
Russian army speak our lar.guage as well as ,
ourselves. Their scientific defence was a
silent satire on our rude attack, and the su
periority in skill of the champions of barba
rism over those of civilization is written in
our best blood.
AN AFFECTING STORY.-A Child Lost.—
The Morganto%n Union gives the following
interesting account of the loss of a child of a
Franklin Gray, in Preston county, Va :
"The child (of tWo years of age) attempted
to follow its father to a neighbor's, a mile dm
tan t. —The mother, missing the child, became
alarmed, and at orce instituted search. She
followed her husband, but heard no tidings
of the lost one. Father and mother,' spread
ing the alarm, joined by sympathising neigh
bors, set out on a search, and all that day
and night they continued the search, but
morning came, and still the little wanderer
was not found. Court was in session- at.
Kingwood, (the county seat,) and on Satur
day morning adjourned to allow all in atten
dance to aid in restoring the child to its anx
ious parents. The -party, numbering now
about two hundred persons, searched the
woods all day, but not till the hunt
well nigh abandoned, as evening was coming
on apace,- could•any • information be had of
the child's condition or whereabouts. Mr.
B. Hawley as he was returning home, and
within half a mile of Mr Gray,s house, found
the child, but it was dead! It had perished
from exposure, having been without food,

The Presidential Election of 1856--• The
'prospeots at this Time.
If no change occurs in the, political senti
ment of the American people, as indicated
by the results of the State elections hell in.
1855, the next President of the United States
will certainly, be a Democrat. During the
past summer "'and fall, the following States
have gone democratic by decided majorities
on the popular vote. We give them in their
order, with the number of Presidential elec
tors to which they are entitled :
Electoral Votes Majorities.
Virginia, 15 10,000
Illinois, 11 20,000
North Carolina, , 10 8,000
Tennessee, 12 2,000
Alabama, 9 12,000
Texas, 4 7,000
(Democratic Legislature and Governor.)
Georgia, 10 11,000
Indiana, 13 20,000
Pennsylvania, 27 11,000
Louisiana, 6 2,000
Mississippi, 7 1,000
New Jersey, 7 -
(Democratic Legislature by handsome vote.)
Wisconsin, 5 1 , 000
As one hundred and forty-nine electors
will choose a President, the States that have
already gone democratic, lack but five of that
number. We presume no sane man will
question the ability of the Democracy to car
ry, in addition, the following States :
Arkansas, • 4
Here'we.have enough and nineteen elec
toral votes to spare, to say nothing of our
chances (which are better than those of any
other party) for carrying New Hampshire,
lowa and Michigan, with 15 electoral votes
all together. In New York, at the late elec
tion; the democratic vote, hard and soft, ex
ceeded that of any other organization, con
clusively proving that our friends have the
ability to carry that state with its thirty five
electoral votes. But, granting that State to
the enemy, the Know Nothings have only
carried with it the following States :
The black republicans have succeeded in
Ohio and Vermont, casting twenty eight
electoral votes. We have, therefore, beaten
both factions, even if they had been united,
handsomely, in the State electionsof 1855,
and have, altogether, the best chance for
1856. In the last six months the democrats
have chosen no less than eight, and probably
nine Governors of States ; Wise in Virginia ;
Andrew Johnson in Tennessee; Pease in
Texas, Winston in Alabama; Wells in Maine;
EL V. Johnston in Georgia; cßae in Missis
sippi; Wickliffe in Louisiana,' and probably
Barstow in Wisconsin. The choice of so
many State democratic executives indicates
that the Union will choose one of the same
politics in 1856.
VALUE OF THE GRASS CROP.—Governor
Wright, of Indiana, says our grass crop isnot
properly appreciated. No crop, he says, ap
proaches so near a spontaneous yield and
none yields so large profit. The hay crop of
the United States in 1850 was over '13,000,-
000 tons; that for 1855 he estimatesat 15,000-
000 which is. worth $150,000,000, while the
whole cotton crop is valued at $128,000,000.
Of this crop more than half is produced by
the four States, New York (which yields one
fourth of the whole,) Ohio, Indiana and Illi
nois. The grass crop which is used for pas
turage is at least as valuable, so that this sin
gle herb is worth annually more than three
hundred millions of dollars.
