Great rire:in Cassville.
Ore Friday [morning, about I o'clock, the tinner
shop of Mr. John Gherret, in Cassville, took fire,
from which it was communicated to the store of
Dr. J. M. Cover and the adjoining public house
occupied by William Brothers, and the three build
ings, together with a great portion of the goods in
the store, and all the contents of the tavern were re
duced to ashes. The buildings and store belonged
to Dr. Cover.
Since the above was in typo we have received a
letter from a friend in Cassville, whose account cor
roborates the above. Mr. Brothers is left very des
titute, his family having even lost their wearing ap
parel by the fire. Dr. Cover's loss is estimated at
from $2500 to $3OOO.
j' The Presidential election was helein Ohio
and Pennsylvania on Friday the Ist. ; in the fol
lowing States on Monday the 4th: Maine, New
Hampshire, Connecticut, Now York, Kentucky,
Indiana, Georgia, Mississippi, Illinois, Missouri,
Michigan and Arkansas.
New Jersey commenced her work yesterday and
will finish it to-day.
Child!Burnt to Death.
We are pained to state that on Thursday last, a
son—about four years of age—of William Morgan,
residing in the immediate neighborhood of this bo
rough, came to his death by his clothes taking fire.
The child approached the fire 'under a wash
kettle in the yard, from which the fire was commu
nicated to his clothes; and, the mother being in the
house, he was burnt so severely before assistance
could be rendered, that he died soon afterwards.
Our Town has been greatly improved this
year. Most of the side-walks on Main street have
been paved with brick, and others will yet be paved.
The new Academy and the building for the Com
mon Schools have been completed, and are now
quite prominent features of the town; two beautiful
Churches, Presbyterian and Protestant Episcopal,
aro now in progress of building; and several other
edifices have been elected. Huntingdon is corning
up to the work in more things than in politics.
A Coon Bite.
It seems we have alarmed and horrified the
"dear innocents" of the Globe not a little, by advi
sing them to "stand off" from that varmint "of
twenty five," and kindly hinting to them that " that
coon will bite." The tremulous creatures now
fancy they see something unspeakably awful in
"that coon of twenty five," who according to the
Locofoco song, they would SKIN ALIVE." Now
don't be scared, ye "skinners"—it is but a young
coon, and not quite so ferocious as " that old grey
coon," whose "federal dander you nets.." Just
pet and fondle the young animal, as you do the
ehavelail "mongrels," and it won't hurt you—in
deed and deed it won't. There now poor dear in
nocents—we did'nt intend to "sheer" you so much.
But seriously: the Globe of last week contains
es contemptible a piece of densagogueism as ever
came from the desperate clique who scribble the
Globe editorials. Our notice of the success of the
new Sheriff, and the despicable means used with the
object of defeating him, is seized upon, and its
meaning perverted, fur the purpose of stirring up
prejudice and angry feeling against us. No won.
der the Globe writer thought of the Marats and
the Robespiers of the French Revolution, for he
was imitating those blood thirsty leaders of the
" rabble" when he was penning his appeal to the
evil passions of a defeated faction against the
"Hyena of the Journal" and the "leaders of the
Clay party."
We said—" His personal and political enemies
carried on the most COWARDLY and SKULK
ING warfare against him, and resorted to the most
low, base, and contemptible means that malignant
slanderers, despicable cowards, and unblushing hyp
ocrites could invent and propagate." The Globe
tags we applied this language to " the Democratic
party," and "to the Whittakers, the Deans, the
Dumbaughs, and numerous other prominent Whigs
of the county." The lying writer, as well as the
::lack-baked editor of the Globe, knew very well that
this is not nue; and no honest Iran, having regard
tar what he utters, could put such a construction
upon our words; and we doubt not that the Whit
takers, the Deans, and the Burnbaughe will not
i thank the Globe for thus falsely construing our re
marks, and dragging their names into an unneces
sary and uncalled for controversy. These fatuities
will no doubt think "soap" CHEAP at the Globe of
fice, and spurn the demagogue's "soft sawder" from
them with indignation and scorn. The Globe
clique know, as did every one else, that we had al
lusion to the persons who figured in the Locofoco
"Independent Whig," printed at the °lnce of the
said Lewis G. Mytinger ; and all who had a hand
in that, either openly or "in the dark," are entitled
to our remarks—they are the fellows meant by the
"political and personal enemies" and by the " ma
lignant slanderers, despicable cowards, and unblush
ing hypocrites ;" and we included no one in our
remarks, whose hands were clean of that dirty busi
ness of the " Shayetail" handbills or "Independent
Whigs."
But this is not all. The Globe perverts the
truth in asserting that we stated "that the BOYS
had sung" they would " SKIN ALIVE" " that
coon of twenty five." The Globe does this in or
der to create the impression that mere boys let out
those "savage, demoniac yells and shouts of victo
ry" on the night' of the election. In almost all
such cases a great portion of the Globe's BOYS are
of the los and stun of MEN!
And as to that awful ward BITE. "Stand oil,"
said we, "that coon will bite." We tell you again,
ye tremulous cowards, and you valiant knight of
the dirk, that you need not be so mightily alarmed,
we only meant to tell you "that coon will bite" if
you go to "SKIN HIM ALIVE!" that's all.
Only don't touch his hide and ho won't bite—he
won't hurt you. There now, Lewis dear, and .
sweet Alick—don't be alarmed.
A Ease and Culpable Fraud,
For a week or two before the election, every Lo
cofocu paper we saw contained some ~ d artling
disclosure" of fraudulent Polk tickets having been
circulated by the Whigs. But none of those tickets
came to light in this region. We have seen none,
and can find no man who has seen any of them; so
that from recent developementa, we ere inclined to
the belief that the " stuffing" article was but the
"stop thief" cry of villians, and the spurious Polk
ticket paraded in Locofoco papers but the cloak to
conceal their own rascality.

discovery of the trick caused considerable excite

LOOK OUT FOR PIPE-LAYING.
We find the ft:Hewing in the Baltimore Patriot
of Wednesday evetdng.
"We would remind our friends in Philadelphia
that a large number of Locofocos left in the cars
this morning, for that city. They have gone on
professedly to see that the Whigs do not lay pipe,
and in all probability for the benevolent object of
preserving the purity of the hallo: box at the elec
tion in Pennsylvania, on Friday next.
"It would be well for our friends in Philadelphia
to keep a look-out for these very peculiar Loco
foco sentinels, and sea that they do not, through
absence of mind, or by the merest accident in the
world try to swell the Locofoco vote in the city of
brotherly love."
There wore one or two of these migratory Loco
voters that hailed from Philadelphia. As they
voted in Baltimore, it would seem right tbut they
should not be allowed to vote here.---U. S. Gazelle.
Jerking up Illegal Voters.
The Baltimore correspondent, of the U. S. Gazette,
under date of the Ist inst. says:
David Miller, the notorious Loenfoco COOPMANt
was convicted yesterday in the Criminal Court, of
conspiracy to vote some 14 to 18 persons in several
different wards of this city, on the duy of the Gov
ernors election. His guilt was conclusively estab
lished. He is now in jail awaiting sentence.
There were some mare arrests yesterday of
locofoces who voted illegally at our secant
j elections.
SLAVES LIBERATED.
A gentleman by the name of Hone, of King
George county, Virginia, lately deceased, liberated,
by hie will, two or tbeee hundred slaves, and left
ample proviaions for conveying them to Liberia.—
They are to be removed by the colonization so
ciety.
renedicali
During the heat of the political contest which
has just terminated, (in favor of Mr. Clay and
Whig principles, wo hope,) wo in a great measure
neglected these welcome monthly visiters. We
received and turned them over regularly to our
better half," who would not be deprived of the
pleasure of their perusal for double the sum they
cost.
The numbers for November are on our table, and
we see them thus noticed by our brother Chandler,
of the Philadelphia U. S. Gazette, a man of ac
knowledged literary taste, competent to slt in judg
ment over them.
LADIES' NATrox.tr. MAGAZINE.-The tales in
this number are various and excellently written,
briefly told and well, too. There is no lack of mer
it in the embellishments, and both reading matter
and embellishments snake up a number that cannot
fail to be acceptable ill an eminent degree to the
extended circle of readers, who monthly look to
Mr Peterson for pleasant and profitable reading.
And they aro never disappointed, we may truly add,
for his exertions, far from being relaxed, are always
on the ascending order, and with a liberal hand he
provides new attractions for his Magazine.
There are fourteen original contributors in this
number, among whom are Mrs. Osgood, Mrs. Ste
phens, Wm. P. Harris, M. D.; Mrs. Orne, Mr. E.
J. Porter, Mrs. Macdonald, and Dr. R. E. Little.—
We cannot name them all, but , the reader will
search out for him or herself, and read and admire.
The story by Dr. Harris, ,4 Was Sidney Right to
be. Jealous ?" is written with spirit and effect, and
the vigor of the language and thought give promise
of much better things in future.
‘Ve dismiss the number with hearty commenda
tions, as adding another to the numerous and sub
stantial claims Mr. Peterson has upon the atten
tion of the public.
GRAHAM ' S MAGAZINE.-We need not attempt
to particularize according to the order of merit, for
we have not room when the contributions to be
spoken of come from such writers as Wm. Cullen
Bryant, Robert Baird, D. D., Mr. A. B. Street, Mr.
J. 1.. Motley, Mr. T. M'Kellar, Mrs. Ann S. Ste
phens, Mrs. Osgood; and others of like calibre.
A portrait of that excellent and eminent writer,
Mrs. Ann S. Stephens, is given in this number, and
also the second of the original series of prairie
ceenes— , The Elk-horn Pyramid on the Upper
Missouri"—a beautifully drawn and finished en
graving. The third engraving represents two dark
eyed maidens of Spain, on o of wh om is playing on
the guitar—a picture better to be looked et, than to
ha the object of on attempt at description.
We will break our promise not to particularize
(on further consideration) briefly to soy dot the
Rev. Dr. Baird contributes an excellent article mien
the life and'eharacter of the late Kin: , of Sweden,
and that Mr. M'Kellar has the following mournful
poem, which we cull for our readers:
LIZITS VIIITZT.M,
Tuos. ELLA u
My strength is failing, like one growiv old:
My friends are dropping one by one away ;
Some live in far-oR' lands—some in the clay
Rest quietly, their mortal motorists told.
•
My sire departed ere his locks we' e gray ;
My mother wept, and soon beside him lay ;
My elder kin long since have gone—and I
Am left—a lent upon an autumn tree,
Among whose branches chilling breezes steal,
Thema° precursors of the winter nigh.
And when mine offspring et our altar kneel
To worship God, and sing our morning psalm,
Their r ising stature whispers unto me
My life is waning to its evening -calm.
GODEY'S LADY'S Boon.—There aro the eviden
cos of improvement all over the " Colley" for this
month—an achievement we did not think very pos
sible—but when energy is bucked by right good
will, and a bold ambition to be the best among com
petitor., it is always hard to say what can be done,
as we find by looking over this number. A very
pleasing engraving, although not altogether sugges
tive of very pleasing thoughts, entitled " The
'reacher, ' leads off, and is fronted by a full length ,
and very accurate likeness of Mr. T. S. Arthur, a
well-known writer and a very general favorite. Mr.
Godey has at last made the fashion plate endurable •
and even pleasing, as any one who books at the
Fancy Dresses 'Journeyed, will believe. " The
Lady and the Arrows." is an illustration which
comtnenees a series of remembrances of the heroic
Women of America, and as on original etching it
possesses much merit.
Among the contributors we notice the names of
Mrs. S. C. Hall, Mr. Wm. E. Burton, Mrs. L. H.
Sigourney, Mrs. Ellett, Mr. Edgar A. Poe, Mr.
Park Benjamin, Mrs. Maury, Mr. 11. J. Tucker
man, Wm. Gilmore Simile, L. L. D., Mrs. Hale,
Mr. T. L. Cuyler, and many others of known merit.
Those who get this number will get the right to
enjoy a deal of good reading for a slight considera
tion, comparatively.
Enclosed in this number we have received im
pressions of three very beautiful engraving intended
to embellish the January number.
ViTisconsin Whig.
The members of the Legislature of this Terri_
tory stand 15 Whig to 12 Locofoco, at the Into
election. The returns indicate a decided vote
against forming a State Government.
TROUBLE IN OHIO,
An artist of strong party attachments in Ohio
got out a likeness of the Loco candidate fur Gov
ernor, seine weeks in advance of the election, and
designated his picture "Governor Tod."--But the
people did net come up to the work, and Bartley,
the V , hig candidate, was elected Governor. Tho
question now is, what can be done with " the Gov
ernor?' They talked of sending it down to Jersey,
but that failed theta. Maryland was then spoken
of, but the %Nike carried the day there ;and, as a
last resort, Arkansas, that has never failed the Locos
was to father the figure, and supply an original for
the copy. But oh, the times or the votes. Ar
kansas itself, that never failed theta before, throws
itself upon the great current, and elect,i a VS, big
Governor.—W hat shall be done with the Governor's
picturrs?—r.4 S. Gazelle.

TariMUD= STEAMBOAT
DISASTER •
Explosion of the Lucy Walker-60 to SO killed
and wonnded!
It is with feelings the moat acute and painful tha t
we record the following fearful disaster, and the loss
of so many valuable lives. The steamboat Lucy
Welker, Capt. Vann, left this place for New Orleans
yesterday, crowded with passengers. When about
four or five miles below New Albany, and just be
fore sunset, some part of the machinery got out of
order, and the engine was stoppcd in order to re
pair it. While engaged in making the necessary
repairs, the water in the boilers got too low; and
about five minutes after the engine had ceased work
ing, her three boilers exploded with tremenduous
violence, and horrible and terrific effect.
The explosion was upwards, and that part of the
boat above the boilers was blown into thousands of
pieces. The U. S. snag boat Gopher, Capt. Dun
ham, was about two hundred yards distant at the
time of the explosion. Capt. Dunham was imme
diately on the spot, rescuing those in the water, and
with his crew rendering all the aid in his power.—
To him we are indebted for most of our particulars.
He informs us that the Lucy Walker was in the
middle of the river, and such was the force of the
explosion, the air was filled with human beings and
fragments of human beings. One man was blown
up fifty yards, and full with such force as to go en
tirely through the deck of the boat. Another was
cut entirely in two pieces by a piece of the boiler.—
We have heard of many such heart rending and
sickening incidents.
Before Capt. Dunham had reached the place
where the Lucy Walker was, he saw a number of
persons who had been thrown into the river, drown.
He however saved the lives of a large number of
persons by throwing theta boards and ropes, and
pulling them on his boat with hooks. Immediately
after the explosion, the ladies' cabin took fire, and
before it had been consumed she sunk in twelve or
fifteen feet water. Thus is presented the remark
able circumstance of a boat exploding, burning and
sinking all in the apace of a few minutes. The
screams and exclamations of the females, and those
who were not killed, is represented as having been
'distressing and awful. We believe none of the fe
males on board were injured—some however may
have been drowned.
The books of tho boat were destroyed, and of course
it will be impossible ever to ascertain the names of
or the number of those killed. There were at least
fifty or sixty persons killed and missing, and fifteen
or twenty wounded—same seriously. Capt.
Dunham left the wounded at New Albany, all of
whom were kindly and well eared for by the hospit
able and humane citizens of that town. Captain
Dunham deserves the thanks of the community
for his humane and vigorous exertions to save the
lives of; and his kindness and attention to the
sufferers. lie stripped his boat of every blanket,
street, and everything else necessary for their corn
fiat.
Mr. John Hixon and Mr. Henry Beebae, pas
sengers on the Lucy Walker, deserve notice for
their coolness and their efficient exertions in sa
ving the lives of drowning persons. The follow
ing are the news of the dead, missing andwounded,
so far as we have been able to learn them.

states that one of the loco foco illegal voters now
in jail in that city, charged with voting illegally at
the lute election, Ws acknowledged, since his im
prisonment, that ho voted in seven different wards

would easily account for the recent astounding lot:

TEIMULE STORM AT BUFFALO--GUZAT LOBS
Or Lies.—One of the most severe and dectructivo
storms ever witnessed at Buffalo occurred there on
Friday night the 15th of October last. The steam
boats Bunker Hill, Colu mime; U. S. Steamers Abert
and G. Bale were driven ashore at Buffalo and the
Robert Fulton about 14 miles above. The Brig
Ashland was thrown over the North Pier and is a
wreck. A great number of canal boats (30 or 40)
are ashore. The water was driven over the flats,
where great lees of life and property was experienced.
At 0 o'clock Sunday morning 33 bodies had been
recovered, of men women and children. Two set.-
, vent girls were drowned in the basement of Huff's
Hotel..—Buildings and Churches were damaged
and destroyed in various parts of the city. The
damage to goods in basements, cellars, and lower
stories, has been great. All who aro engaged in
business on the dock, have suffered more or less.
We donut hear that shipping up the Lake hassuff

excited in behalf of the eon of a Revolutionary pa
triot, who was captured at Mier, a citizen of Ala
bama, addressed a letter to President Santa Anna,
requesting his liberation. We understand that he
has just received a polite letter from President San
ta Anna, informing him of the prompt discharge of
the captive, according to his request."
Hurricane at Rochester.—The hurricane which
did so much mischief at Buffalo, was also felt at
Rochester. Trees were torn up, roofs of houses
and stores swept away, and ash poles knocked over.
The roof of the Dutch church, on B tilson street,
was entirely carried oft Tho gable end of Mr.
Howses' brick building was blown down and fell
with a tremendous crash, almost annihilating
Brewster's store, adjoining, going through the roof
and both floors into the cellar.

The New York Sun says; 44 Brandreth's Pills
have been used among many of our friends, and in
our family we have used them nearly' four years,
when we required medicine. In that period, no
doctor save Dr. Brandreth has crossed our threshold,
and no medicine besides the Doctor's pills used.—
Our belief ic, keep your bowels and blood pure, and
every kind of disease will be prevented or cured.—
The Brandreth Pills are eminently calculated to do
this, and thereby much lessen the sum of human
misery. They are a certain cure for fevers, colds
from damp or changeable weather, putrid exhalta
tions of any kind, or contagious maladies. None
of these causes for sickness can effect us except
through the organs or the stomach and bowels ; and
common sense tells us there can he no safer method
than the removal of unhealthy accumulations in
those important organs. It mutters not whether
those accumulations proceed from the impure state
of the blood, the state of the air, changes of the
i weather, or from unwholesome food."

INFLUENZA AND CONSUMPTION.-4t iS indeed a
melancholy truth that thousands fall victims to Con
sumption every year, from no other rause than ne
glected Colds ; yet we find hundreds, nay thousands,
who treat such complaints with the greatest indiffer
ence, turd let them run on for weeks and even
months, without thinking of the danger. At first
you have what you considered a slight cough or
cold; you allow business, pleasure, or carelessness
to prevent you from giving it any attention; it then
settles upon your breast—you become hoarse, have
pains in the side or chest, expectorate large quanti
ties of matter, perhaps mixed with blood ; a difficul
ty of breathing ensues, and then you find your own
foolish neglect has brought on this complaint. If,
theneou value life or health, be warned in time,
and don't trifle with your Cold, or trust to any
quack nostrum to cure you; but immediately pro-
cure a bottle or two of that famous remedy, Dr.
Wiatar's Balsam of Wild Cherry, which is well
known to be the moat speedy cure ever known, as
thousands will testify whose lives have been saved
by it.
For Influenza it is the very best medicine it the
world as hundreds will testify.
