The selection of Judge !tassels. Brown, of
Warren, as the Presidential Elector for this
Congressional district will give general satis
faction to the Democrats, and all no little to
the strength of our electoral t i oket. Re is
known In all parts of the dietricti and it le
almost needless to add, that he -is Universally
esteemed. In his capacity as Presiding Judge
of our Courts, he won the reputatihn of an
able and affable jurist, and was popular with
members -of the bar of every political with.
ins character in private and public- 1110
without taint, his devoted patriotism
love far the Union are freely admitted, and in
every particular he comes up to thip standard
that should be required of a candidate for so I
exalted a station.
The Representative delegates from this Is
trios to the Chicago Convention are Wm. A.
Galbraith, Esq., of this city; end Ho Wm.
A. Wallace, of Clearfield county. The fpraier
is too well known to our readers to require
any extended illusion to his merits. It is
sufficient to say, that the unanimous senti
ment of the Democrats of the distri4 has
long pointed to him as their desired represen- '
tative in that body, and this not through any
effort on his part, but solely by that common
feeling of our Natures which causes us to
wish to be represented in important bodies
by one of our ablest and most trusty leaders.
The flattering vote which Mr. Galbraith re
ceived for -Senatorial delegate in the State
Convention is evidence enough that the peo
ple of his own locality are not alone in, enter
taining* high opinion of his character. Mr.
Wallace is not so familiar to the people of Erie
county, bat we assure', them that he -is a man
of whom they will never have cause to be
ashamed. He is still quite young, but in the
debates which have taken place is the State
Senate, of which he Is a member, he has
given proofs of talent excelled. by few mem
bers of that body. At home, in Clearfield
county, he is extremely iopular,t and his
friends predict for hint a distinguished carter
as a statesman and orator.
With 1 men like Galbraith and Wallace at
Chicago, the Democrats of the Twenty-First
district, will be represented quite as well, to
say the least, as any other In the State.

Jno. Shoemaker, was killed by another named
Ranchelander, both of Randolph township,

composed of all manner of hideous noises , .
In this amusement Shoemaker, as we under
stand, was not engaged, but was insidirof the
house, being a particular friend of •Rouche

enaders entered the house, which \so incensed
Rouchelander that he seized s sti ck of fire
wood and aimed a blow at one of air', which,
being evaded, struck the deceased \ upon the
head, from the effects of which hskdied' the
same night. Rouchelander was cot:til:fitted to
jail on Tuesday.

Messrs. P. & Co. are agents for a new Horse

Gee. 011A11x come so Waswittavox.—We
understand that Lieutenant-General Grant is
to be permanently Incited at Washingtoii, and.
that he will proceed to that City as soon as he
can conclude some military arrangements
which he has on hand at the West. His prin
cipal object in being at the seat of Govern
ment is, of course, to be able to direct She
movements of all the armies of the Unioa, It
is rumorel that on his way back he will stop
in this city, to procure a pair of patent Plumer
made boots, at the store of Jas. Eichenbanto,
State street. If the General does this, be will
prove that he is a man of tuts.

readers - is directed to the advertisement of our
late cotemporary, Jos. 8. M. Young, who his
opened, at No. 4 Wright's Block, one 'of tho
richest and best selected assortment' of fancy
and useful articlei ever exhibited in one se
tablishment in the city. Almost everything
that one could desire may. be .found aG his
store. His enterprise deserves success, and
we have no doubt will receive it.

We have noticed for some time past the
added freshness 'and interest of the local de

paper, which from its home associations and
the ability with which it is conducted, we value

We imagined that' the style of the Patriot':

surprised, therefore,on our late visit to Harris

Esq., was the presiding_genius of this depart

PLEASIING larsixtossos.—A telegiam from
the Provost Marshal General to Gov. Curtin
states that it will only'require 1600 men to fill
the quota , of Pennsylvania, the State having
received credit for
, 10,000 in excess of the
number required under the calls for 600,000.
In this case the proportion required of our
county must be small, for,.. as remarked in a
letter received from a friend in Harrisburg

show that Erie Is not excelledin - prompt action
