fare from Lewistown to Harrisburg is $2,10,
the highest rate allowed by law to be charged—
from Lewistown to Dillersville $3,40. An af
ternoon opposition line lately ran from Colum

be $5, or if the old rates are charged $O.

Locoroco Lova eon Tits VotrkrESas !
Capt SatALt. has been defeated for a re-nomina
tion for the State Senate by the Locofocos or
Philadelphia county. His succeseful competi
tor, FERNON, is a mere Locofoco with
out any qualifications, nave his tilt& Locofoco
ism. Copt. Small was a captain in the First
PennsylVania Regiment, in the Mexican War,
and served with great distinction. This is the
way Locofocoism rewards the brave volunteers
for whom they profess so !smith love.
As is not always the case with rumors, the
rumor we noticed last week that the dissatisfied
Locofocos were about bringing out another can
dilate for the Legislature, proves td be correct.
The announcement appeared in the Globe oT
last week, and will be found in our advertising
columns this week. Mr. Jon Moan's, of this
borough, quite an intelligent and heretofore an
active and loyal member of the Locofoco party
of this county, is the gentleman selected. He
has heretofore held several appointments on the
Canal from the Locofoco party, and we under
stand always made an industrious end useful of
ficer. His supporters allege that he will be
well supported by his party in this borough
and throughout the county. We shall see.
We learn that many of the honest, tax-pay.
ing members of the Locotneo party, whose only
object is the iublic good, declare their intuition
of voting for HENRY M. FULLER for Cana
Comffissioner. They say they will never give
their votes in favosr of ereet?ng the entire board
from one party. A Locofoco of this kind re
rnnrkes to us the other day, that he would vote
for FULLER, “because," said he, "1 believe
there will always be more honesty in the Canal
Board when both parties are represented, than
when it is composed exclusively of members
of one party." We think he is right, and no
doubt Una are scores of honest Locofocos who
eutertaillMe same opinion.
The last Hollidaysburg Register puts the fOl•
lowitig posers- to the Loeofoeos of this could) , :
If the Locos have such great love and respect
for the soldiers of the Mex?ealv War as they
