'He has crowned the past year with his

The goodness of Cod has signally blessed
our Commonwealth. War with its desolations

I, JAMES POLLOCK, Governor of the Common

Thursday, the 22d day of November next, a,
day of general Thanksgiving and Praise
throughout this state; and earnestly implore
the people that, setting aside all worldly pur

to Almighty God for his past goodness and

his blessing s.

A. G. CURTIN, See. of the Commonwealth.
The Editor of the Chambersburg Whig,
who has been closely examining the elect
ion returns of the various counties of the
State, informs us that Cumberland coun
ty is the only, single, sole, solitary dis
trict in the whole Commonwealth, in
which an old line, unadulterated "Vir
g•in Whig" has been elected ! Col.
Wm. M. Henderson, the Whig candidate
for Commissioner of Cumberland county,
it seems has won this signal distinction.
It is true, Col. H. was not elected by the
Whigs exclusively, for our democratic
friends who were this fall taken with a
sudden liking for the Whigs, such as
they have not shown in previous contests,
very kindly lent some "aid and comfort"
in the election of Col. Henderson. He
is an old fashioned, veteran Whig, an es
timable gentleman and practical business
man. As a .Commissioner he will exer
cise a vigilant care over the interests o
the county.

The Lveaster Express is of opinion
that the re\training liquor law passed by
the last Legislature will not be repealed.
'A h 3 house may pass a repeal bill, but
the Express says it cannot pass the Sen
ate. The vote in the Senate on the pas
sage of the law was 15 yeas to 14 nays.
Of the new Senators elected this fall,
but one, Mr. Wilkins is known to be op
posed to the law. while four of the new
Senators are said to be committed to its
support. The Express counts upon 17
votes against repeal in a full Senate and
is therefore very confident that no bill
repealing the law can pass that body, but
it may be mistaken. Will Mr. Wherry,
Senator from this district, stand by the
law ? He voted for it, but the last demo
cratic convention of Cumberland county
passed a resolution instructing their can
didates for Assembly, in the event of their
election, to vote for the repeal of the
law. Whether he will act in obedience
to such instructions remains to be seen.
By the time' the Legislature meets the
law will have been in operation in many
counties three months., If he is satisfied
that its effects are beneficial he may vote
against its repeal. Time will tell.
01110 ELEC4TION.
Full returns of the Ohio election give
the following result of the vote for Gov
ernor:—Chase, Republican, 146,106;
Democrat, 130,887; Trimble,
American, 24,287. Chase's plurality
over Medill 15.21 g. iie majority for
the rest of the Republican State ticket is
between 34,000 and 35,000. The ag

Vote this year is 16,546 less than was cast
for him in the year 1853 for the same
office (chile the aggregate vote cast is
18,590 greater.
MAssActiusorTs —1 very exciti n g
electoral canvass is now proceeding in
the old Bay State. Apparently the. im
mense American party, which swept the
State like a whirlwind last fall, is 'now
completely broken up. Upon its ruins
has arisen a powerful organization, boar
ing the name of the Republican party,
headed by Senators Sumner and Wilson,
Ex-Governor Boatmen, and some influen
tial Whigs. In this is, of course, com
prehended all the old Free Soil party,
which formerly numbered about 32,000
votes, hod a goodly number of Whigs.
Tho nomination of Julius. Rockwell, an
old Whig member of Congress, as the Re
publican candidate for Governor, and the
earliest support given to the party by the
Boston Atlas, seem to show that the
Whigs have joined the movement in con
siderable numbers. A strong effort has
been made to re-organize the old Whig
party of the
.State, and in this movement
Rufus Choate, Robert C. Winthrop. and
other old Whig leaders, have joined.
Mr. Winthrop'sveeession is of much im
portance, as,he has been a powerful man
with the Whigs of the. State. Whether
he still retains his influence, can hardly
be guessed in the present confused condi.
tion of politics. A separate candidate
for Governor has been nominated, and a
rather conservative platform adopted by
the Whigs; but this will not be as to
help them in Massachusetts, Under pres
ent circumstances, as the State is tho
roughly anti-slavery. A large portion of
the American party still maintain a dis
tinct organization, and, being dissatisfied
with the course of the 'Republican party,
they have re-nominated Governor Gar

of the American party. The Times
says, " in the beginning secresy was pro
bably necessary and unquestionably po
litic, as in no other way could so large
a party haire. been so rapidly built up;
but the necessity for attachment to these
forms has passed, and we arc glad to see
steps talcen — for.. their abolition. , , Their
existence has been a source of great dis
comfort to many members of the party,

The Ohambersburg 11 , 144 points out
some features of the new Legislature., of
Pennsylvania as worthy of notice. There
is not a single old Senator , re-elected--a
result that has rarely before occurred.
Another remarkable fact iy that the whole
eastern and southern part of the State
has not chosen one anti-Pierce_Senator,
while the north, heretofore reliably Demo
cratic, has displaced two Pierce men, and
sent Republicans in their steal In the
Ilouse the same singular change is pre
sented. Of the eastern counties,' where
the old Whig strength used' to be, but
two counties have elected a solid anti-
Pierce phis and Lebanon—
ams, Lancaster, CheA-
,ter anO. teeAledly Whig count
ies, and - all the doubtful. counties, have
gone either partially or entirely Demo
cratic. In the interior and north, the
Democratic ranks are terribly riddled.
In Perry, Centre, Armstrong, Juniata,
Tioga, Bradford,, Susquehanna,
Jefferson, Mercer, Venango, and Potter,
formerly good for an aggregate ,Qemocrat-'
is majority of 5000, I . )emocratic tickets
are defeated, and nearly 4000 majority'
given to NtenoLsoN.
A London correspondent of the Na
tional Intelli , eneer states that, the ex
pectation is general in England and Eu
rope that there will be a g,rand blow up in
the next Congress, a dissolution of the
Union in two years, and that England
will take the South Under her protection.

Onto.—The recent election in Ohio
settled one thing which was not at first
apparent. It scen►s that the Legislature
in Ohio holds only biennial sessions, and
the last session was held in the winter of
1853-4. It was very largely Democratic.
At the last election a new Legislature
was chosen, and the majority is over
whelmingly Republican. It meet. in the
approaching winter of 1855-6. Senator
H'ade's term as the representative of Ohio
in the United States Senate expires on
the 4th of March, 1857, and thus it will
devolve upon the Legislature just chosen
to elect his successor.
NEw Von ti POLITICS.—The New York
State central committee of the opponents
of the prohibitory liquor law, appointed
by the State Convention of the 19th, has
issued an address, calling upon all their•
friends and the liquor dealers throughout
the Commonwealth, to vote the Soft Shell
Democratic ticket for State officers. If
this recommendation is acted upon it will,
probably decide the contest in favor of
the democrats—that is if the liquor in
terest proves itself as powerful in New
York as recently in Pennsylvania.
A Divisiorr OF TEXA:-A writer
front western Texas says the German,
French, Swiss, Hungarian, and other
European settlers in northwestern Texas
are to a man in favor of forming a new
State out of the western portion of that
State, and to a man they are oppoSed to
slavery. Free Soiligm at that cud of the
Union would change some people's ideas
of the necessity and policy of annexing
more Mexiean territory.

Tim Passmore Williamsonvase wasagain
before the U. S. District Court in Phila
delphia, on Friday last, on a motion
made by his Counsel to file a petition in
relation to his case. An able argument
was made by the Hon. W. M Meredith,
and on Monday, as we learn by the city
papers, Judge Kano made an order in
the case of Williamson, refusing the leave
asked for by counsel, because he is still
in contempt, and by the petition he seeks
to present does not purge himself. Td
the end, however, that he may purge
himself, the Judge also ordered that
whenever Williamson shall declare, un
der oath or affirmation, that he is willing
to answer melt. interrOgatOr;eB as may be
addressed to him by the COurt touching
matters heretofore inquired into by the
Habeas Corpus, that the Marsahl shall
bring him before the Judge in Court or
Chambers, to abide the further action of
the Court.
This seems to open a door for the set
tlement of the difficulty of which we
think Mr. Williamson should at once
avail himself It will probab,y allow, of
a fuller and clearer statement of his course
than that wade - 1n his first return to the
writ, and lead to his release from con
finement, while hew will be sustained and
his own character for integrity and vera
city be in no degree compromised.
SiwErtE '---The Easton Argus, a
staunch Democratic paper, which sup
ported Hunter and the whole tichct,,'says,
" we notice that an effort is made in cer
tain quarters to construe the late 'Dem
ocratic triumph iii Pennsylvania into an
endoreement of the present National
A dmipi:itration. It must require a pe
ml.iar pair of spectacles to see any such
meaning in the result, and we pronounce
it pure unadulterated nonsense. In this
seciion of the State, where the largest
majorities Nero given' for the Democratic
candidates, no one thought of 3.k. Pierce
or his administration,, and no one cared
the snap of a finger about either. The
victory might with as much reason be
claimed as an endorcement of the course
of Louis Napoleon,"
- FOREIGN I3rmiquATloN.-4-During the
week past, 6555 foreign immigrants ar
rived at the port of New York, on board
vessels from British and German ports,
bringing with them in cash money to the
a nouns of 8245,075, or an average of
thirty-eight dollars for every man, woman
and child. The real amount of cash
means is thought to be much larger, as it
is said to be a well aeertained fact that
the German immigrants do not report all
they bring with them.

rapidly spread over the house and soon corn
inunicated to the barn, which was but a little
distance from the house. The whole of the

spread that but little of tho household furni

loss we hose not heard, but it must be heavy..

PLANT TREES !—Now is the time, 10-
marks, a contemporary, to plant Trees, and
every owner of a fnern or lot should take ad
vantage of it. Trees planted in the Fall aro
said io thrive better thou those planted in the
Spring—they become firmly rooted in the
ground dining the winter, and lose no (line,
as it were, by transplanting. Especial atten
tion sh lul l be paid by farmers to the selection
of the choicest kind of fruit- Good fruit is as
cheap to raise as bail, and always commands
the highest price in market. Attention +honk'
also he paid tc, the planting of shade and or
namental trees, both in' town end country --
There are quite too many houses in Cumberland
barren 1 till ornament of this kind. A bowie
embowered amid vines and shrubbery, and
surrounded by trees, is at all times a beauti
ful sight, and proclaims in language more
eloquent than words, that it is the abode of
taste, intelligence and thrift.
Direct , rs of public schools should make it
a point to see (brit where trees are wanting
around School Houses they are at once set
out. The scholars will cheerfully attend to
this duty if encouraged or requested by tbs
proper authorities.' Vines and shrubbery
should also be planted, and the school house
made as attractive us possible. It requires
little labor to do all this, and when once done
every stranger who pisses will carry with
him a good report of the neighborhood whet()
these pleasing attractions are presented.
