• A careful comparison of the votes cast at
the late municipal elections in our State with

one to ten. Thus, Harrisburg,.which
twenty itieusand inhabitants, cast 2,057 votes;
and Eattion,,7which claims .twelve thousand
inhabitints, - nast 1,219. Preiiuming this ratio
r r
to be correct, it is•essy to estimate the popu
lation .of oar locality. At the late election,
the city proper. olled 15411 vu'es, and South
Erie 228, making 1971 in all. This would
give Erie 15 480 inhabitants. and South Erie
2,280, or both together 17,110, which, in our
belief, is very near the mark. •

visited the mines with his medicines, and de

the earth. A driver places his gang of slaves

face lest they should swallow the jewels when

coming so expert that they can snap them'
with their fingers from the pan to their
