We dreamt we saw a beautiful &male ty=

serpent. Its horrid folds confined the limbs
and_closely_compressed.the_chest and neck.
Her livid countenance and glaring eye-balls
marked the agony of strangulation; and the
monster's head was thruSt into her very
throat, with her sweet tongue in its horrid
jaws. We dreamt again, that a Jury.of in

Senatorial Candidate.
Whet. our paper went to press last week,
we were not aware that our friends of York
had settled upon a person for Senator. From
the Ymit "Republican" of Tuesday last,
we learh that the Senatorial Delegates, who
met at Hanover, on the preceding Tuesday,
had, "without a moment's hesitation select
ed JAMES R. REILY as their candidate,"
In the same paper ,lie' . find the following
"Address of the Democratic Anti -Masonic
Delegates assembled in convention at York"
—For a notice of the talents, capacity, and
principles, of the' gentleman chosen, we ask
the public to read the following Address.
Amongst other names mentioned, that of
Jaines-IL-Reily appeared to be the most
prominent, .and consequently it became a
niatter of some importance, to ascertain f his
fitness foethat station.
Our first enquiry of course was,_whethef
