Mr. Cummings' bill to abolish tavern
licenses, which,passed the House by a,
decided majority and had an equally fair
prospect of passing the Senate, has been
so much chan . 7ed . and amended in the
latter body that the present shape of the
bill does not s , min to be clearly known.

The Lancaster of Monday, how
ever, denies the statements made in the
despatch, and says that the question of
an open organization was discussed and
urged in the council, but that the opin
ion of the majority was that the time for
such a change in the organization had,
not arrived. The harmony of the coun
cil was not disturbed by the discussion,
and the Union says that no one left in
Or A MERICAN ORGANIZATION.-
Nearly every American paper we take
is out in favor of an open mfanization of
the party,on a well defined National plat.
form. It is agreed, on all hands, that
the party is now strong enough to cope
successfully against all opposition. It is
also said that the Administration of Gov.
Pollock, , favors this position, ,and his
friends in the Legislature almost unani
mously give it their approval.

9AIII ON Jll TRAVELS.
BriniantSucoosolon of Triumphs.
/The recent State and Municipal' elec
tions show a brilliant series of American
. Democratic friends felt
exceedingly cheered by the ray of hope
which seemed to dawn in the first reports
from Connecticut. But their premature
expectations were doomed to speedy and
cruel disappointment. Subsequent re•
turns show that the triumph is wholly for
Sam,' and that the Americans have car
ried the Legislature and all four Congress
men. The vote for Governor stands—
As a majority of the whole number is
required there is no choice for Governor
by the popular vote. The Whigs and ,A
mericans will have 19 of the 21 Senators
and probably fully seven difittlis of the
House of Repre3entatives, which will en
able them to select N 1 inor for Governor.
The Americans and wbigs . elect the whole
four members of Congres'hy decided ma
'The election for Governor, Lieutenant
Governor, and two members of Congress,
took,,place in this State on Wednesday.
The returns are all one way. lloppin
and Rose, the American and Whig can
didate for G-overnor arid — Lieutenant Gov
ernor, are both elected by large majori
'tics. The American candidates for Oen
gross are also elected, viz:—Mr. Durfec
in the Eastern district, and Mr: Thurston
in the Western district. The vote for
Governor, from alLbut three towns in the
State, sums up somewhat in the fashion of
Berks Co. returns when the 'Democracy'
there was in its prime. We give a sam
ple : .
Porto', lloppin, (Am.) (Derr.)
Providence, 5,790 1,680!
Newport, 1,175 - 187!
Kent, '1,115 , 140!r,
Washington, 1,708 135 !
Bristol, 713 105!
"Little Ithody' talks very loud, cer
tainly, for one of her size.
In addition to these State triumphs the
redoubtable Sam has achieved a host of
lesser victories. In. Virginia he has been
giving Henry A. 'Wise several very strik
ing admonitory illustrations of the fate
that awaits him in the gubernatorial elec
tion now near at hand. A municipal e
lection was held at Richmond on Wed
nesday, and Sani's boys swept the board,
electing an American Mayor, both bran
ches of the Councils and all city officers
by about 1200 majority l In Portsmouth
and Winchester, Va. the Americans have
been successful in the local elections.-/
In Annapolis, Md. in Calais, Maine, and
in Columbia, S. C. there have 'seen A
merican victories. At the election for
State Censors in Vermont, last week the
Americans were triumphant. At the
charter elections hold in Ohio, on Mon
day of last week, the Ameridans carried
the day in Cleveland, Sandusky and Col
umbus, but wore defeated in Cincinnati.,
In St. Louis, Missouri, at an election held
on the 3d inst. the Americans elected
all their candidates ,by about'' 110 . 0, 'ma
jority. In Jefferson city they were also
successful. Sam, it will thus be seen,
has shown himself in a very formidable
attitude in all parts of the Union.
- The-lowa election,-which hag just-taken
place has resulted in the election of all
the Whig candidates for .State officers,
by larger majorities than in August last.
In Wisconsin also; Judge Cole, the Whig
candidate, has been elected to the Su
preme Bench. A municipal election in
Louisville, Ky., has resulted in the elec
tion of the American ticket by heavy ma

As the officers
,of the two wards where
the ballot boxes were destroyed have
made under oath full returns of the-elec
tion held there, and these elect all the
Democratic city "candidates, the clerk has
given the certificates to the latter, and
the Mayor has already b.en qualified.—
To—the City Council it is ascertained
that 1:7 Democrats and 17 opposition
members are returned. Matters are now
quiet and the excitement is disappearing.
cg to the Gazette, which favors
the American party, the defeated candi
dates were not very creditable to the par
ty which nominated them.
CIRMC R PROPERTY.
The bill in relation to church proper
ty, sometime since introduced by Mr.
Price, has finally passed the Senate.-:---
The bill is intended to prevent the ag
gregation of all the church property of
any religious sect iis the bands of a sin
gle ecclesiastic (as now held by Roman
Catholic Bishops) deeming such a con
centration of authority -and power not
compatible with our institutions. A sim
ilar bill has become the law in New
Lown anti (fount) A-tatters.
APRIL COL - RT,—The April term of the
Court of Quarter Sessions, &c. of this county
commenced on Monday last. No cases were
tried on the civil list, and the Court is now
engaged in the trial of criminal cased': The
amount of business is comparatively small.
ADMITTED TO 'PRACTICE.—In the
Court yesterday morning, on motion of L.
Todd,-Esq., Mr. Levi Meiley n'as admitted to
practice in the several courts of thiz County.
SECOnd PRESBYTERIAN CIIU RC ll.
We understand that at a Congregational meet•
ting of this church on Saturday last,, a call to
the Pastorship of the church was voted to the
Rev. Mr. EALS, of Newburyport, Mass. It is
not yet known whether he will accept the cull.
WEATHER AND VEOPS,—The recent
fine, weather and. refreshing rains have given
a vigorous start to vegetation, and we are
glad to learn that the grain fields present a
decidedly more promising appearance than-it
was feared they would. The prospect is, how
ever, that the wheat and rye crops " will be
small. The lateness of the season may prove
favorable to. fruit.
RENtovAr.,—Mr. Dick advertises this
week his removal to a new stand on South
Hanover Street, where in addition to his old
he has opened a new stook of Spring and Sum
mer goods of the most attractive styles.
NEW Goons.—Bentz and Brother call
attention to their first-opening of Spring and
Summer goods, which for quality and cheap
ness present groat inducements to purchasers.
SUICIDE,—The Mechanicsburg Glean
er says a respectable citizen of New Cumber
land, named Joseph Brien, committed suicide
on last Wednesday morning. He had been la
boring under temporary insanity for about
three weeks, and on the above day ho shot
himself in the back part of the head, with a
pistol loaded with buck shot, producing al
mo- t instant death. He has been subject to
ocoasional fits of insanity. At the time of
his death he was about 50 years old. •
Fon THU LADIES—SPIIING FASHION/.-116f
Thursday was " opening day" among the New
York milliners, and from the account of the
great proceeding, we glean the following de
scription of the new spring bonnet :
The bonnets this season are not ho much
flared as last; the crowns droop more, and the
front is slightly projecting, and very many
are covered with dotted lace, either white or,
black. They are trimmed with a profusion'of
flowers, intermingled with white and black
blonde. Flowers are much used in tripling
both inside and out, and quite a novel effect
is produced by the combination of white and
black blonde. Straw encore largely into the
composition of bonnets this season, the fronts
of many being formed of it, and the trimmings
of others, receiving additional beauty from
the intermixture of flowers of the same glan
cing material. Madame Ferrero exhibits two
splendid specimens: The crown and edge of
the front is made of the finest split straw, and
the front and part of the side crown is of hair
^arranged so as to resemble puflings, each put
ting being confined by a single row of braid.
An-exquisite border of hair lace, with a shell
like edge, light as blonde and far.more beau•
tifui, is attached to the front rim 'of the• hat
and thrown back With the exception of the
crown, the hat is transparent, and it is with
out exception the rarest and most recherche WO
, have over seen. •
