As we predicted.when the National
American Platform was promulgated, the
attempted conciliation of the South has
utterly failed and the Northern dough-fa
ces only "dirted themselves for noth
ing." Kentucky alone stands firm.—
Tennessee, which was Whig in 1552, is
irretrievably gone, and NI r. M. P. Gentry,
distinguished for his base treachery to
Gen.. Scott, has experienced merited ret
ribution. With North Carolina and
Tennessee gone it must be confessed
Sam's prospects in th South are "grow
ing, small by degr :es and beautifully
less." The only ln»e for him is in stan
ding firmly up or freedom.

The Americans of Chester county have
formally resolved on a temporary suspen
sion of their distinqtive proceedings as a

They recomend a meeting: to be held on

THE NEWVILLE FAnt,—During the
prOgresi of the Industrial Fair last week,
Newville was the centre of gaiety and excite.
ment. The streets were thronged with visi
tors and the Fair grounds presented an ani
mated scene. The Fair itself was fully suo•
ccssful and the receipts amounted, we under
stand, to between $l2OO rind $l5OO. The
display of articles in the various departments
was exceedingly novel and attractive, but as
our visit to the Fair was but brief and hasty ,
we cannot particularize. We were glad to no
tice several very creditable articles ft.( m the
skilful hands of Carlisle mechanics. The re
port of the Managers we presume will give
the details of the exhibition and do full jtuti
tioe to the various exhibitors. The arrange
ments of the Fair were excellent and we Con
gratulate the energetic and attentive mana
gers upon the complete success of their ef
Tni COUNTY FAin!--,—The exhibition
at Nelcville, we hope has- had the good effect
to rouse the spirit of our farmers and mechan
ics and induce them to commence in good
time to prepare articles of agricultural and
mechanical production for exhibition at the
County Fair which which takes place in Octo
ber. Let no one be deterred from sending
articles for exhibition by the fear that they
will not be geod enough to take a' premium.—
Whether they take a premium or not they w
be of interest to the public. We hope to see such
a display of stock, grain, domestic productS:
elegant butter, preserved fruits and every
other article nr pertaining to the Farm and
Dairy as shall truly exhibit the wealth, fertili
ty and thrifty husbandry of our noble county.
our mechanics also will find-it an admirable
opportunity to give the public occular demon
stration of their taste and skill, and they
should avail 'themselves of it with the coati
dmice that their prosperity in business will be
fully commensurate with the excellence of the
articles thus brought to notice. We call atten
tion to the matter now in order to prompt
them to early action.
The ladies, too, both of our borough and
county, we hope will not forget that a crowd
of spectators will be 100 ing with warm inter
est for a thousand fancy and useful articles,
the products of their busy needles and delicate
taste,. Let the "note of preparation" be
heard without delay and all be prepared to
contribute something attractive tr substantial
so that the display may be worthy of our
flourishing Valley.

of the Agricultural Society on Saturday last,
was attended by a considerable number of the
members, and passed off pleasantly to all. A
substantial dinner was provided in n grove
near town, and after dinner a number of
members participated in a free discussion of
agricultural 'Subjects. Among other topics in
troduced was a motion offered by Mr. George
the County to make a donation of two hundred
acres of the Poor •Ilouse Farm for the purpose
of securing tho location of the new Model
Farm School in this county. The motion was
advocated with his usual earnestness and force
tinned by Messrs. Stuart, Scheeler, Rea, Dale,
Shaffer, Bradley, Glenn and others, some of
them urging and others objectin g to the pro
position. .
We are glad the subject has been thus
brought up and trust it will continue to be
agitated until some definite result is attained,
What other counties and individuals are doing
to secure the location of this institution has
been heretofore noticed ,in our paper, and we
feel confident that if our Farmers give the
subject the proper degree of reflection they
will be prompted to co-operate in a vigorous
effort to secure the location of the School in
Cumberland county. Of what advantage it
would be they can form an idea from the no
count of an English Farm School which we
publish in another column. We have little
doubt but the proposition made at the Harvest
Home on Saturday would meet - With the appro
bation of the Farmers generally of the county,
and would suggest that a meeting for further
action on the subject bo held during the ap.
Trenching August court.
REAL ESTATE SALES.—The fine farm

For flu, Herald.
To the Night-Blooming Venous.
Oh, miracle of Beauty, why dust thou
Quickened and nourished z;,,y the warmth and light,
Ilide from the Sun the lustre of thy brow,
And shOw
,thy Splendor only to the Night ? '
Foarest thou lest the garish glare of Day
Disclose SlllO fleck upon thy snowy cup?
Or, is it pride, when other flowers ore gay,
That makes thee hoard thy peerless beauty up?
Or, out of 'kind regard and modesty
Withdrawest thou, until the day is done,
That Lilies may not die of Jealousy,
Nor Ruses blush to see themselves outshone?
Or (lost thou choose for thy seleetest hour,.
The sTason nhon the Flans look down on Earth,
That they nay know by virtue o 1 thy power,
What Beauty In tills lowly Plaj.e has birth?
Like a fair Bride, who all the live-long day
Could not turret her eny and maiden ways,
When the Night annoy thou threwest veils away,
,And then the dusk grows lustrous with thy gaze.
But why so transient Tarry till the dawn
Thou dreadost tarrying and to he despised.
The Beauty that is often looked upon,
,ipt, thou thickest, to he lightly prized.
Then let me view thee without vain regret; ' , "l
And bathe me with the fragrance of thy breath;
Shine in thy rich array. while I ferget
How near approach thy Glory and thy Death!
(ih short-lived Splendor! most transcendent Bloom
The Beauty of thy Ill( wer is 11101.1+ to me,
Be';use thou tc ilt ho sought Mr In the Ulema,
And most bemMn of thy Fragility.

ple of Wisconsin, says the New York Times,
are rapidly gaining a reputation for disregard
of law and contempt for legal tribunals. Not
long since they seized a prisoner from the
Sheriff, while on his way to jail, put a rope
around his neck, and strangled him. On
Wednesday last the act was repeated in Mil
waukie, with but slight change; and a More
barbarous act never disgraced a civilized com
munity. The prisoner was DI:11AR, charged
with the murder of the AIEYEIL family, and
found guilty of murder in the ffrst degree.—
The circumstances of the murder, which we
have published, were horrible, it is true, but
not more so than the manner of his death.
While being taken to jail, surrounded by
Military, a mob rushed at him ; the military .
gave way, and DEBAIL was struck to the ground
by a stone. The mob then fell upon him and
mangled him in a dreadful manner. A rope
was then tied to his heels, and he was dragged
through the streets the distance of half a
mile, when he was hung up by the heels to a
tree, where he remained for several hours. A
more barbarous act it has never been our un
pleasant duty to record. •
