The election in this Congressional District has
terminated in favor of the McCoy and Wolf party.
This result was anticipated by all. The opposi,
tion were divided between Mr. McSherry and Mr.
Mahon. Mr. McSherry, through some misappre
hension, for which wo believe blame can be imPu
ted to no one, was withdrawn in Cumberland,
Petry, and some parts of Franklin counties. 'rho re
no tickets wore distributed for him. He was,
however, supported in Adams county, unde - Fa
those disadvantages, by most of those Anti-Masons
who voted, and received nearly two to ono over
McCoy. In this county, more than one hundred
Anti. Masons voted for Mr. Mahon; thinking his
chance the best against McCoy. We have gained
all we expected. We have demonstrated the en.
•• ascendency of Anti-Masonry in Adams cowl :
t If the day had been fair, Mr. McSherry'S
ni 'ority would have been at least 700.
We will take a short review of the political
complexion 9f the different election districts in

the location of the Lodge, the People have hard

a few days since, in . the Salm:sine Court of
New York - by Moses 11. Grinnell, against
the Collector of the Port,. to recover from
'him an alleged surplus of duty paid tViiim

imported' to this city from London. The
iron consisted chieflyof worn out articles
used in husbandry and domestic concerns,
such as broken spades, shoveltrieuen - out
The Collector charged on the iron a duty
of 62i cents per 112 lbs. as scrap iron, while
of that in question, was - not "scrap iron" in
the meaning of the law—that it was "old

only to the duty of 15 per cent, ad. volorum,

such exchanges mutually beneficial, he now pro..
