State Legislature.
In consequence of the high water, we are again
without a Harrisburg letter. We learn from the
papers of last Thursday. that the Central Railroad
bill was taken up on Wednesday, and passed
through Committee of the V 1 hole, with amend
vents. It was then ordered to be re-printed, and,
together with the Right of Way, postponed until
Monday last.
rjThe Globe, we see by the last number, has
parsed into the hands of Wm. Lowry, EN, Mr.
Lewis is a practical printer, arid an old acquain
tance of ours, who, we believe, will make that raper
on interesting and dignified locofocosheet. We com
mend htm to the support of his party in this coun

ryTle Governor he. appoin'ed Daniel Christy,
of Juniata, Robert Orr, of Armstrong, and Henry
WBride, of Westmoreland, Cotnmissionere to fix
the mite for the public buildings for Blair county.
Theae gentlemen are all considered favorable to
making Hollidaysburg the shire-town. Of course
that matter was arranged.
Township Elections.
We would again impress on our friends the ne
ceseity of attending to the election of township of
deers on Friday. We hope the ‘Vhigs will not
neglect to go to the polls. We would bo thankful
to our friends in the different townships if they
would forward us the returns of their several elec
tion.. A friend hes furbished us with a few ex
cellent suggestions in regard to the election of Ae ,
einwors, which may be found in another column.
Whig Candidate for Canal Commis-
A brief account of the proceedings of the Whig
State Convention will be found in our columns
slay. Nearly all the counties in the State were
represented, and the delegation, says the Intelligen
rer, embraced en amount of substantial worth and
intelligence never surpassed by any previous State
Convention in Pennsylvania. The beat spirit pre
vailed, and the strongest indications given that the
Whig party throughout the State intend making
another vigorous and determined rally in October.
The nomination of JAMES M. POWER is
'Token of in the very highest term.. He is a gen
tleman of distinguished abilities, being we under
stand 4 practical Engineer, and one that has had
groat experience upon our public works. We
therefore bespeak for Mr. Power the hearty and
united support of all who desire reform and re
trenchment in the Canal Board.
In speaking of the close of the Convention, the
Intelligencer remarks:—"Able and eloquent speeches
were made by Mr. Brady, Cowan, Conrad, McMi
chael and Chandler, and new vigor was instilled
into the hearts of the delegates. The speeches
were frequently intern opted by burst. of enthusias
tic applause. and the entire proceedings of the
evening afforded the most lively setisfaction.
Stronger determinations to activity and exertion
we have never witneseed in any convention ever
held in this borough, and those determinations we
treat, and have good reason to believe, will be
maintained, until victory is found perched upon
the IV h.g banner."
The l'reshet.
On Thoredey night last, a inoJerate warm rein
commenced falling, which continued during the
forenoon of Friday. In the afternoon, however,
the clouds thickened and the rain commenced de.
sending in torrents, accompanied with thunder
and lightning, which continued until about six
o'clock in the evening. At this time the Juniata
was rising very fast, all the little tributaries being
■ttelien beyond their channels. After dark it
again commenced reining, and continued until
about 10 o'clock, so that by morning the river was
higher than it has been known to be since the great
freshet of 1838. The damage to the Canal is not
yet correctly ascertained, but it is feared that it is
About 4 miles below this place there is a portion
of the canal bank swept away, end still further
down a few miles, we learn, there is about 20 feet
of the bank gone.
In the narrows, below Lewistown, we are in
formed, there is a serious break in the Canal; our
informant was not aware of the extent, the Canal
banks being entirely under water when he left.
It is said that three of the turnpike bridges be
tween Lewistown and Duncan's Island have been
swept away.
In consequence of this freshet, we have had no
mails from the East since last Friday evening.
I'. F.—After a portion of our edition was worked'
off, we learn that the two bridges at Harrisburg
across the Susquehanna have been carried away.
One wu the Railroad bridge, which it will be re
collected, wu burned down about 18 months ago;
only a portion of it was re-built.
Two spear of the bridge at Duncan's lal-na have
been carried away and also the bridge ecroee the
linet', at its mouth.
We regret to learn, too, that Fisher & Morgan,
if Duncanan Iron Work., have sustained damage
o the mount of $BO,OOO by the flood.
The Susquehanna is said to be several feat higher
ban it ass ever known to be at at any previous
ore. The dtmlg° to the renal is thought to bb

Family Poisoned
We learn, says the Register, that Mr. Wm.
Templeton and family, numbering some six or
eight souls, residing in Petersburg, Huntingdon
county, have recently been very seriously poisoned
in eating apple-butter kept in earthen-ware crocks.
One of the family, a young man of 25 or 26 years
of age, has died; the others we believe are likely to
recover, through the use of proper remedies. The
cause of their ailing wag not discovered until after
the death of the young man, and then only through
the intervention of an intelligent neighboi.
M.. PL1A51.31.-The following paragraph,
from the Richmond Compiler, shows that Mr.
Pleasants had some intention of not killing Mr.
Ritchie, and this accounts for his opponent's escape
from tho shots he tired at him. The Compiler
seys:—"ln his dying moments he stated, what Ito
one had before suspected, that he had drawn the
bell front ono of his pistols after his friend had left
him, the night previous to the combat, in order to
diminish the danger of his adversary, whilst thee°
to which he himself was to be exposed, he must have
felt, made it almost impossible to escape."

ILtantanune, March 11th, 1846.
To the President bf the Democratic Whig Con

Si nr—l desire through you to return my most
grateful thanks to the members of the Convention
who supported me as a candidate for the oflice of
Canal Commissioner. Although not favored by
a majority of the votes of the body over which you
preside, I beg leave to say that my zeal in the cAuse
is not Impaired, nor my desire for the successiTthe
nominee, the less. In voting for Whig candidrites,
we substantially vote for Whig principles; the two
ere inseparable, and as I ant determined to support
Mr. Power with all honorable energy, I have only
to entreat of my friends to "go and do likewise."
I am, respectfully,
Your obedient servant,
A letter of like import was also presented and

himself, and his friends of the "Old Guard," to the
support of Mt. Power.
The conoideration of the resolutions were then

Power, the Whig candidate for Canal dOthtnis
goner, and three chews for Karns.
Important Decision.
The following report of a case tried at the late
Bessie. of Montgomery county, we clip from the
Olive Branch. We understand that the decision
wee in accordance with the law forbidding all shoot
ing or hustling matches, or any thing of that char
acter, as well at private as public houses. We
copy it fur the information of any who may be ig
norant of the existence of the law. •
' , Commonwealth vs. John Godahalk. The de
fendant was indicted for keeping a gaming house.
It appeared that upon two or three occasions a
company of his friends had been invited to his (a
private) house, to a hustling match fee five and ten
cents each. Defendant plead guilty, but in exten
uation, said ho was not aware of its illegality, it
being quite a common amusement among the Ger
mane, of whom be was one.
The court fine him $3O, and sentenced him to
10 days imprisonment.
The lVashington correspondent of the N. Y.Tel
'graph says
“The really important and decisive intelligence
regarding the state of the Oregon matter, will not
leave England until the 4th of April. The steam
er of that date will bring the despatches that are to
terminate the controversy for weal or for woe—we
shall read the last chapter. The overture or propo
sition which was transmitted to Mr. McLane on the
lot rust., from the administration hero, will have
been laid before the Ministry, and their final purpose
will have been taken, in time to communicate the
result as I have stated."
BUFFALO Girt EtacTios.--A I the recent char
ter election in the City of Buffalo, the Whigs
made a clean sweep, electing their Mayor, S. G.
Haven, Esq., &lan Barnard, Esq., Justice of the
Peace, and seven out of ten Aldermen, and ■ pro
portional number of ward officers, by majorities
averaging about two hundred. This is doing very
well in a city that east a majority of about 400 for
Polk, and who one year since elected the entire
tocofoco ticket. It is said the locofecog in that city
have been troubled with the dry-rel ; if so, we can
addjudging by the way that Irate have changed
owners, that some who eottened to their interests
here are also' touched with that taint.—Errs Gaz.
