It is of great importance that these elections
should be attended to, RO that the sovereign voice of

following Wednesday, and present a Ticket to the
Democracy of nuMbers in Old Huntingdon" that

their united and active support on the Second Tues

the animate of the menagerie on Saturday last.—
Upwards of a thousand people—men, women and
children—attended ; and we heard some say that it
was not what it was "cracked up to be."
The New York Tribute says that an old sailor,
named Edward Benson, living near Wethersby,
Connecticut, has recently received intelligence that
there is now due him from the British Government
$2,400, and an annual pension of nineteen guineas,
for naval service. lie was pressed into the British
service from an American whale ship, and was with
Nelson at Tratalgar, and in other battles. Be is 74
years old, and is hale and hearty.

years old, and weighs 1740 pounds. On the 20th
May she brought a calf, and the owner bad the cu
riosity to measure her bag ; it was two feet iu depth,
two feet in length, and eighteen inches in width !
The calf was then put upon one side, and thirty
pounds of milk taken from the other aide at the
same time. After the calf had done, 21i pounds
more were taken from that side. Twenty four high
ly r.pectable citizens of DeleherMwn attest these
facts in the Northampton Democrat.

make affidavit that the culprit may be punished.
This fellow, Smith, was pardoned out of the

by Governor Porter, having been sentenced for
three years to that prison for picking the pocket of

More Riots in Canada.
A riot took place at Kingston, Canada, on the
12th ult. between a party of orangemen and their
opponents, in the course of which fire arms were
used, and a lad named Robert Morrison was killed.
The troops were called out to quell the disturbance,
and the Kingston Statesman says that three of the
military were wounded, besides several men and
boys. Both parties charge each other with the
origin of the trouble.
Mr. Thibodo, a gentleman holding some office
under the Government, was arrested on the charge
of having given order to fire when the lad Morrison
wag killed; but the Chronicle intimates that the
charge was without foundation.
During the day, the Orangemen were celebrating
the Battle of the Boyne by a grand dinner.

FIRE AT SINO SINO PRISON', Now Yona.—A
fire was discoveled, on Wednesday morning, break
ing out in three places, within the wall of the State
Prison at Sing Sing, New York, and before it was
extinguished, destroyed property to the amount of
$lO,OOO. The buildings destroyed are the brass
shop, in which are manufactured stirrups and other
articles used in the completion of harness, the plain
maker shop, and the stone cutters shop, which had
been fired in three places, by an incendiary. For
tunately the prisoners, to the number of 769 males,
many of whom are men of desperate characters,
were each confined in the separate cells at dinner,
at the time the fire was discovered, or the conse
quence might have been the breakingloose of many
desperadoes on the community in the confusion
which the fire occasioned. There is something
wrong in the management of this establishment.
Cumberlani County—New Dove!.
The last Carlisle Herald says t—We learn from a
correspondent that Gen. Thomas C. Miller, of Dick
inson township, has recently discovered in sinking a
shaft, in one of his Ore Banks at Cumberland Fur
nace, an immense deposite of pure red Ochre, the
stratum or vein being twelve to fourteen feet thick,
and of the finest quality, second only to the finest
Venetian red, and quite superior to the Spanish
brown or Baltimore red.
The General is now preparing it in large quanti
ties for the market. It is so pure that he need do
nothing more than dry it on scaffolds in the sun,
and grind it through his mill, which prepares it fur
the finest kind of painting. His apparatus for dry
ing, though very simple, is capable of preparing a
ton a day. From the appearance of the mine, it is
supposed there is an amount sufficient to supply the
whole united States. It is now coming into general
use in the immediate neighborhood, and painters
using it pronounce the quality excellent, both for
body and brilliancy of color, and there appears to
be no doubt but it will soon suporcede all other red
paints now in use for barns, gates, wagons, ploughs,
harrows, common tables, desks, and for all other
The Military Encampment.
We learn from the Register that letters of invita
tion have been sent to fifty companies of Infantry
and Cavalry, and to GEN. SCUTT, GEN. DILLI.R,
and a number of other distinguished men, by the
committee of invitation; and from all accounts the
greater part of them is confidently expected to
Flints to Parents and Rich Men.
The Forum of the 26th ult. says We lately
noticed a munificent act on the part of Mr. Potter,
of Princeton, (N. J.) in presenting his four children
with $200,000 each on the 4th of July. This is
mild to be the second act of the kind on the part of
Mr. P. We need no better proof of the sound
acme and kindly heart of Mr. Potter. When pa
rents have fortunes to bequeath to their children, it
is much better to divide them before death. We
have frequently observed with pain the ill-feelings
cnmendered hi families where children expect for
tunes from their parents, and are obliged to await
their demise before they can realize them. A hipo-
critical strife takes place for the affections of the
parents—those who are from home are misrepresen
ted and prejudiced by the children at the fire-side--
the father is frequently persuaded to unnatural ne
glect of his elder born offspring by the younger
members of the family, who are always present with
him, "and a degrading jealousy invariably disturbs
the harmony of the household.
Besides this, there is, humiliating as may he the
fact, a secret longing for the death of the testator,
who is to enrich his heirs. The thirst for indepen
dence and riches knows no bounds, and often ren
ders its victims callous to the ordinary feelings of
human nature. The progress of time is carefully
noted—the lapse of yeara anti hours enters into the
selfish calculation of the duration of human life,
and every moment which protracts the delay of the
rich man on the stage of life is regarded with
jealous envy by his expectant heirs. We have
witnessed many ouch scenes, and they are a part of
every day history•.
How much better would it be for the testator, as
Mr. Potter, to distribute his fortune, while living,
among his children? How much more congenial
ton generous mind to see, before death, his descen
dents in the enjoyment of independent ease—to
witness his cllspring, by the aid of his own well di
rected bounty, rising to honorable position in society
—to behold them through the influence of charne
-1 ter and wealth become the ornaments of their family
and the benefactors of society. 'We know of noth
ing more cruel than the spectacle of a parent living
in affluence, with children struggling in poverty and
distress against the hutTetings of the world, refusing
to extend to them the least aid from his own abun
dant store.. These observations will apply equally
well to the man of competency, as well as the mil
lionaire. Advancing age freezes the blood and dims
the eye, but why should it dry up the heart and
drown all the good feelingS of our nature in avarice
and selfishness? Why should age lose its sympa
thy with youth, and stinginess or parsimony take
the place of generosity and good nature? Let us
hope that the good example of Mr. Potter may have
Forgery in 2ostcn.
The Boston 'Times says that Mr. Charles Cole,
Jr., a young and hitherto respectable merchant of
that city, has been arrested on a charge of having
committed a series of extensive and heavy forgeries.

By the supercargo of the brig Vesper, which left
St. Johns, P. ii., we are sorry to learn that the yel
low fever prevailed to some extent among the ship
ping. American vessels had not suffered much, but
nearly the entire crews of two English vessels had
fidlen victims to the disease. The crop of sugar and
molasses was mostly shipped off, and freights dull,
at 45 per cwt. Markets well stocked with Ameri
A destructive hail storm at Portland, Maine, on
the dth ult., destroyed 50,000 panes of glass, besides
doing great injury to the hay crop and young fruit.
We were struck the other day, in looking at a
work called the Lives of the Pre.sidents," with a
few curious coincidences of numbers which relate to
the lino of five Presidents, beginning and ending
with an Adams. Here is a table, for instance, of
the periods in which they were born and went out
1735 John Adams, 1801
1743 Thomas Jefferson, 1809
1751 James Madison, 1817
1709 Janine Monroe, 1825
1767 J. Quincy Adams. 1829
Now, it will be seen by this that Jefferson was
born just eight years after his predecessor Adams ;
Madison eight years after his predecessor Jefferson;
Monroe eight years after Madison; and John Quin
cy Adams eight years after Monroe. Another curi
ous fact to be observed is, that Adams was just sixty
six years old when he retired; Jefferson was Sixty
six ; and John Quincy Adams, had ho been elected
to a second term, would have been sixty-six.—
Adams, Jefferson and Monroe all died on the 4th of
July.—N. Y. Post.

MARRIAGE AND PLOUGHING.—On the
2d ult., Esquire Miller, Magistrate in the borough
of Tarentum, Pa., went to the house of a man
living five miles back of that place, according to
previous arrangement, to marry a couple. He ar
rived at the appointed time, and finding no prepara
tion for the wedding, he began to think he was
hoaxed. He consequently went to a field where a
man was ploughing, to ace what was wrong. On
his arrival the man stopped his plough, saying he
would sec if she was coming, and after walking a
few steps, with his eyes fixed on a little hill at a
short distance, they eaw a beautiful girl of about
sixteen, descending its heights, and wending her
way towards them. It was her; and on her arrival,
they were united in bonds of matrimony on the
spot, and he went on with his ploughing! 'The

An Affecting Ocene.
The New York Sun relates the following:
A few days since, at Buffalo ; a boat load of Ger
mans landed from the canal, evidently direct from
the "Fuderland." Among them was an old lady
and some three or four children, quite grown up;
several tavern-keepers were around the boats, as is
customary, to solicit patronage from the immigrants,
and one of these approached the old lady, who, im
mediately upon seeing him, threw herself upon his
neck and wept, the children also embraced him, and
team and smiles alternately bore their sway ; the
explanation of the scene given was, that the old
lady was on her way to Detroit in search of her
husband, who had emigrated some years previous,
and she had thus unexpectedly fallen upon him at
this place. What a meeting! Who would not
have been them to share in those feelings which
overpowered the happy family with inexpressible
delight, as the weary wanderers embraced the ob
ject of their search ; as he recounted his deprivations
and sufferings, his toils and efforts, to amass the
means of bringing out his family ; as the mother re
counted the perils of her voyage, her alternate hopes
and fears ; and then as both surveyed their offspring,
all poured out tears of joy at the happy event !
The conquests of a Napoleon furnish no delights to
equal the happiness of a scene like this.
NEC: G 00177. Mt TnO EXIMCIS2 or LYNCH
Low.-One of the Louisville papers tells a story
illustrative of new ground for the exercise of lynch
law. A young lady of New Albany, lowa, in the
last stage of pulmonary consumption, who had been
given over by the physicians of that place as incur
able, was married on the 25th ult., after a short ac
quaintance, to a medical professional, under a sol
emn pledge that he would restore her to health ; but
the A lbians, believing him to be a humbug, gave
him notice to quit, and he left the place in haste, to
avoid n free suit of tar and feathers. The bride,
who was obliged to sit in a chair while the vows
were pronounced, was left behind.
The St. Louis Era of the evening of the sth,
says Two hundred citizens of Coles county,
Illinois, have resolved in a public meeting that no
heed should be paid to the decision of the Supreme
Court of the United States setting aside theappraise
merit law of Illinois; that all officers be advised not
to carry out such decision in the sale of property ;
that they be asked to resign their offices if they
cannot comply with such recommendation; and
that they (the people) will oppose them by all fair
and mild means, and if that will not do, they will
oppose thorn by force of arms and all other means
lin their poorer; that committees be appointed to
ascertain from such officers whether they r will per
sist in such sales or will resign their placee ; that the
meeting appoint officers to carry out the resolutions ;
that the decision of the Supreme Court is regarded
las unjust, and not binding on the people of Illinois ;
and that they pledge their Hoes, fortunes and Sacred
I honors to sustain their resolutions.
Another Breach of Promise.
$20;000 had been served by Sheriff Stryker on a
gentleman in Flatlands for a breach of promise of
marriage. Whether the arrest of the gay Lo.
thario" reminded one Miss Long of a promise made
by one Francis Gerrity, both parties being natives of
the Emerald Isle, is more than we can avouch, but
be that as it may, Miss Mary Long sued out a capias
ad reppondendum, against the faithless styain Fran
cis, in the sum of $lO.OOO, for refusing to complete
an arrangement which had been made when on
board ship, crossing, as Mary said, a say as
threacherous as Frank's own heart." The writ,
duly tested, was placed in the hands of Sheriff
Stryker, endorsed with the words following, viz:—
, Let the defendant be held to bail in the sum of
one thousand dollars."
The Sheriff proceeded to the whorcabout of Mr.
Gerrity, and having found that worthy, Wormed
him of his business. Mr. Gerrity launched forth a
volume of expletives which it is utterly impossible
to give with any degree of correctness. The Sheriff
suffered him to partially exhaust himself, and then
suggested that he might perhaps settle the difficulty
by calling in the priest and fulfilling his promise to
Mary by marrying her. Francis inquired if the
sheriff would go wid him" to Mary's residence, and
the sheriff assenting, they trudged off in company.
On arriving at the house of Miss Long, a fine bux
otn looking girl made her appearance, and after some
conversation the sheriff and the parties proceeded to
the residence of the priest and merged the suit in
the abyss of matrimony.—Brooklyn Neu,
