Those who have not paid a State Br County tax within two years, should remember that they must be assessed at least ten days before the second Tuesday of October, otherwise they will not be permitted to vote.

See that all are assessed. 127' Indisposition of the editor has prevented him from giving much attention to this number of the Jourral. " Wake up citizens," and when wide awake call at the clothing store of B. & W. SNARE and our word for it you will find ready made garments that cannot fail to please the most fastidious. Their assortment is quite large. [Cr Gan. Taylor has returned to Washington. His return is understood to have been caused partly by important public business, and partly by continued indisposition. His health, how ever, is not supposed to be seriously affected. The Globe--Mr. Cornyn, The Glebe of last week devotes more than two columns to the abuse of Col. Cornyn. The editor calls loudly upon the people to defeat the Whig candidate, but does not tell them which of j the Locofoco candidates they should elect. It would seem farcical therefore in us, to enter in to any discussion with him on the subject. The opposition of the editor of the Globe to Mr. Car nyn comes a little too late. If he made the tin• faithful Representative which the Globe now' would make the public believe he did, why did not the editor attack him long since? The sea son is mani:cst ; he had no sound objections to urge, and thought by waiting until the eve of the election, he could get up a humbug cry about nothing, that would better answer his purposes. But as we said before, it is too late. The people of this county know that they never had a more faithful and efficient representative at Harrisburgthan Col. Cornyn. This fact is ad. milted by men of all parties. And the Whigs of Huntingdon know that they have never had a more eloquent and able champion of their cause in the State Legislature. When at the commencement of the session the Locofocos banded together and were holding nightly eau-I to entrap Old Bill Johnston, oar glorious Whig Governor, Ms. Cornyn stepped forward in his defence, and made a speech which caused the conspiratOrs to hang their heads in shame. It was an effort of which the Whigs of Hunting don were justly proud ; it was eloquent in dic tion, and unanswerable in argument. Through out the entire session, Mr. Cornyn was ever at his post, attending to the business of his imme diate constituents, and the interests of the State at large. In maturing and passing the impor tant revenue measures of the session, by which the State credit has been maintained and a Sink ing Fund created for reducing the STATE DEBT, Mr. Cornyn took an active part. Indeed he was looked upon as a leading member on the Whig side, and never spoke without receiving the. marked attention of the. House. He made, in short, just such a representative as the Peo ple of Huntingdon county want ; and hence they will return him by a largely increased majority, and the opposition of the Huntingdon Globe will rather have the effect of swelling than decreas ing thatlmnjority. The opposition and abuse of the Globe is to be expected by Mr. Cornyn. The same paper abused and misrepresented both -rnylor and Johnson last tall, but as the election showed, without much effect. Every good Whig there fore, who runs for an important office in Hun tingdon county, must expect to encounter the abuse of this sheet. MAJN.E ELECTION.-The returns from Maine are yet incomplete. As far as heard from the Whig's have gained in the Legislates° and also gained on the popular vote. It is not certain that the locofoco candidate for Governor is elect ed by the people. The senate will stand 15 whige to 11 locos; the House is still in doubt. Locofocoism is being hard pressed in all the free States. 07" We regret to state that a son of the Hon• James Cooper, ten years of age, fell from a coal car on the railroad at Pottsville, and had his leg so dreadfully mangled that amputation above the knee was necessary. A number of boys were playing on the ears. An Insult to the People. "If you would have a sound and reliable cur rency, GOLD and SILVER, you must vote againrt Col. Cornyn."—Globe of last week. We submit, whether in this enlightened day, a more direct insult to the intelligence of the people could be offered, than is contained in the above sentence 1 And it is not possible that there is a reader of the Globe in the county, so steeped in ignorance as not to look upon it as most contemptible humbuggery. All that is wanting, according to this, to give us an exclu• sive currency of "gold and silver," ie the de-' feat of Col. CortisM! Why did yoit not add, Mr; Globe, that the people . would have "long silkdn purses, through the insterstiCes et which the gold and silver would glitter," also as a conse quence of Col. Curnyn's defeat: After penning the above, there is nothing you could say, which would render you any more ridiculous. We do not notice this matter because we think our candidate can be injured by such stuff. But we wish to call the attention of holiest Democrats to it. We want to ask them whether they can continue to cast their votes for a party, the or gans of which annually insult their intelligence by just such disgusting humbug,gery as this I. Is it not an evidence that they have no sound objections to bring against Whig principles and whig candidates, whenthey record to this course? Every body knows that nearly all the banks of this State have been incorporated by the Loco focos. And every body knows, too, that we cannot get along without banks. Yet an elec tion isnetrer allowed to pass, without a sense less and unmeaning outcry by the Locofoco pa- Peru against bank paper, and in favor of gold and silver, thinking thereby to continue to hum bug the people into the support of their candi dates. We know there are scores of honest de mocrats who do not approve of this, and in jus tice to themselves they should boldly vote against the party that thus annually outrages their good sense, The Party. The following rather ambiguous paragraph appears under the editorial head of the last Globe : " We would advise two or three gentle men in this town, whose tongues are no slander where known, to curb them, that We may be saved .the trouble of giving an exposure of their eontemptable proceedings generally. We have taken our position, and come weal or come wo, we shall adhere to it. We are with the party and for the party, the assertions of those who differ with us to the contrary notwithstanding." Now what does all this mean 1 It is known here that a very pretty fight is going on at this time among the locofocos in relation to the Le gislative candidates ; and it is also said that the editor of the Globe goes with the Jobitea. But he don't say so in his paper. He says he is with « the party." Well tell us who is the can didate of ,4 the party"—Col Duff or Job S. Morris 1 After telling us this, as you so much object to Mr. Cornyn's course in the Legislature, please give us the platform of the candidate of ,‘ the party." This thing of running two can didates, neighbor, and holding yourself in a po sition to go for either as circumstances may best suit, aint just the fair thing. Let us know who the candidate of « the party" is and all about him, and then we will have a fair fight. A run vote. Remember, Whigs, all that is wanted to elect HENRY M. FULLER is a full rote. Shall we not have a full Whig vote in old Iluntingdon 1 Every consideration which caused us to rally for Taylor should still animate and urge us on to duty, We should strive to follow the noble example of the Free Whigs of the Free States of Rhode Island and Vermont. They have no bly sustained our patriotic President and his enlightened Cabinet, and tiennsylvania has more to expect from the National Administration than either of those states. as A FULL VOTE IS A WHIG VICTORY," is the remark of the Boston Atlas upon the result of the Whig tri umph in Rhode Island, where Mr. Dixon is elected to Congress b.,' a majority of 600 over Mr. Thurston, the late 10er:1R/co member. So it is. The remark does not only apply to Rhode Island, but to many other States in the Union. It is equally applicable to Pennsylva nia. Give us a FULL VOTE, and we are sure of Whig victory Baez also. Hangars. We have had some additional foreign news during the past week, but nothing of a definite or satisfactory character. A painful suspicion rests upon Georgey, that his surrender was in fluenced by Russian gold. 'f he Daily news of Thursday last says : , —The intelligence from Hungary is still obscure and unsatisfactory, but while it throws no new light upon the causes which influenced Georgy's surrender, it seems to confirm the more important particulars of the previous saddening advices, forcing upon us the conviction that the Hungarian forces are rapidly yielding to the overwhelming power brought against them. So far as received, how ever, the news corrects in reports, and many of them doubtless lacking authenticity, and it is possible that even were the patriot armies struggling with undaunted courage and unfledg ing energy against the allied powers, we might be without intelligence from them, for the Rus sian and Austrian forces command all the ave nues of correct information. We may be with out authentic information from them, in fact, for weeks to come, but even if their cause is lost, which we very much fear, they will not give up the struggle without en ellbrt. We cannot believe the story that Kossuth has been captur ed, nor yet that with Hem he has abandoned his cause by fleeing to Turkey. KENTUCKY.-The new Legislature has a Whig majority on joint ballot of about 30. In the Convention called to amend the constitution— Which will have control of the slavery question —there is a Locofoco majority of five, The Locofoco press of the North are loudly crowing over this fact, but it only proves that slavery was afraid to trust itself in the hands of Whigs. Qom' The Globe we believe has not yet heard the news from Rhode Wantland Vermont: The Recent Elections. It is the standing boast of the Locofocos, that Gen. Taylor was elected by 'democratic' votes, and hence that the vote polled for hint Must not be regarded us anevidence of Whig strength.-- The recent elections prove the fallacy of this assumption most conclusively. They also prove that the Whigs have manifested a zeal no way inferior to that displayed in the Presidential con tuft, as will be seen by the following compara tive statement from the official returns of such of the States as have already come in, carefully prepared by the New York Tribune:— Gen. Taylor's vote: Whig tong. vote Rhode Island, 2,1 district 3,393 2,822 Alabama, 5 contest'd dis. 21,932 22,116 N. Carolina, 9 do. do. 30,073 29,010 Ifidiana, ccimplete 69,007 70,504 Total of thesei 124,305 This shows an increase of the whig Congres sional vote of 1819 over that of Gen. Taylor, of 137 votes. Some of the States yet to Bend in their returns in an official shape, will Increase this difference, especially Vermont, which it is presumed will show an increase Of from. 3,000 to 4,000 votes. The ill sticcass in Kentucky and Tennessee arose from the fact, that the Whigs were, in the words of the Tribune, 'cried do*n as the anti-slavery party.' This was suf ficient td deter some thousands from voting at all, or to indtice them to vote fOr Locofoco Con gressmen. 'Upon the whole, the result Of the elections prove that the Whigs are active and United, as faithful as ever to principles, and as determined in action. The result in Pennsylvania, we will not permit ourselves to doubt, will be another evidence of the fact. The signs df it are nu merous and most promising. The. Jobites. The Globe does not deny what we said about the meeting of the friends of Job S. Morris, so far the locos are concerned, but says that the names of several whigs appear as officer. of the meeting. This is true; but it is also true that but one of the Whigs named took his seat as an officer of the meeting, and that one, as he after wards said himself did not understand its ob ject, and avows himself the warm friend of Mr. Cornyn. Several others named by the Globe made no pretentious to have anything to do with the meeting and are also warmly in favor of Mr. Cornyn. In short we repeat what we Said be fore, the Whigs are perfectly united on their candidate for the Legislature, and will roll up for him in October a most triumphant majority. The dissatisfied locofocos who have rallied around Mr. Morris, will therefore have to con tent themselves with the votes they can manage to pick Up in their Own party. COOL LuctiontmE.—The Norristown Register expresses fears that in the event of the Whigs of this State obtaining the ascendency in the next Legislature, the State will be gerryman dered by the bill creating Senatorial and Repre sentative districts. The Herald well remarks that this is rather cool for a member of that party which by the last apportionment bill al lowed Westmorland three members of the Le gislature and Washington but two—which gave Becks the same representation in the popular branch as A,legheny, and gives Montgomery one Senator, and Chester and Delaware but one. The fact is, the Register fears the State will NOT be gerrymandered—to suit the purposes of its party. Whigs of Philadelphia have ndmina ad Charles Gilpin, Esq., for Mayor. Another Warning. The attempt to unite the Democratic party of Vermont to the old Abolition party, modern ized under the name of "free soil," was tried and failed on Monday last in that State. So says the Pennsylvanian of Thursday. It might have said the same of the coalition in Rhode Island a few weeks ago. The coalitions of the "Democratic party" in the west with the " flee Boilers" and the south wills the Sla very-extentionists, were more successful. Upon the whole we don't think the Pennsyivaniatt has much cause for lamentation over the bar gains its party has made of late but the future may prove less propitious. CALIFORNIA.-The news from California by the last arrival is generally satisfactory. The gold continues to be gathered abundantly, but with very severe labor. The season is healthy and very few serious casualties have occurred. Law is sternly administered, very little crime is known, and order prevails throughout the mining district. The inhabitants seem to have acquiesced entirely in the proposition to hold a convention at Monterey on the let of Septem ber, for the organization of a State Government, and an election for Delegates, as well as other officers, has been held. The state of society at San Francisco, however, is represented in a far less favorable light than in the mining districts. In the latter they are industriously engaged in working for it, in the former they are spending it, and gambling and drunkenness still continue too common. Goon—Eznelleut.—The Democrats have car ried the Convention in Kentucky by FIVE sin- JORITY I This is one or the greatest victories of principle on record.--Doylestown Democrat. The principle upon which the victory was won is the perpetuation of slavery. hod grant that when such victories are gained they may be by the self-styled Democracy." Han. %V. Gwin, formerly of Mississippi, but now of California, has written to his friends in New Orleans, that the people of California will promptly organize a State government, and ex clude slavery by an overwhelming majority. The Boston Traveller of Saturday states, on the authority of a private letter, that the French Government will not receive Mr. Rives, our new ambassador to Paris. The Traveller supposes the reason will be drawn from certain despatches Bent home by Mr. Rives during his former envoyship in France, and published by our government. They related to the difficulties concerning the French indemnity, and going back to France helped to heighten the irritation which existed there on the subject. COMMUNICATION. Ma. CLAAK 1-I am a "working Whig"—and whether I have or have not written for newspa peril matters but little, as I mean id "stick down something" in answer to one Working Whig from Little Walker.. We in Old Walker ddn't Eke to be behind. 'he "Little Walks? Whig" may be a working Whig; but I don't be lieve it. The Whigs were never found in times of trial, drilling nor uniting with the co* boys or Skinners.—No Whig ever deserted, and was a Whig still.—What a man is and what he has been are sometimes two things. In this case, however, I guess the has been and the is are the same, and the "Little Walker Whig" is, and has been, and will be a Locofoco—one of the right stripe—fit for nothing else. Now what he says about you, you may tend to yourself. I am for the reputation of Old Walker ; and when 1 find that the organ grind er of the Locofocos is playing a double--;--as ! vitiea/ game, hoping to entrap a few unthin ing Whigs in it, I am for "giving him a few." Be gin then at the "Little Whig's" communication, ' nnd. read the Globe through both ways, and you will find there is not one word as to who is the candidate of that organ,—except the flag of Col. Duff whiCh flies at the mast-head,—while the organ is said to make bad music for the Col. to March by ; and if it is good for Job, poor Job cannot hear it, and I am afraid that Job and his friends will sleep the sleep "that knoWs no wa king," before they will be awakened by its tones. The truth is, in Ohl Walker we feel as if the Globe's attempts to injure Col. Cornyn will prove abortive. And all the labor of .the Globe seems directed to that and end. Yet who does the Globe support for the ,Asserribly? Can any one tell? Not Job surely I foci there is not one word urging any body to vote for him. Can any honest Whig be duped by such a shal low artifice? And if the Little Walker man I was a Whig, we commend to him the proverb— "if you lie down with dogs you must get up with fleas." 1849; 124,452 The Globe is very free with its columns to a "Little Walker Whig," while only a few weeks since it refused " A Democrat" of town room to take some of the tangles out of Deinocracy, be ca•use he leas not a subscriber. What Whig subscriber has he got in Little Walker, that wrote that article! Whig subscribers in Little Walker easily counted, eh? We want every man to attend to his own af fairs and he will have enough to do. Skin your own skunks, Mb Globe, and your hands Will be full. In Old Walker we should like very much to see that list of debts paid by the model Supervi sor? It was too long for you, but you would fur nish it to Mr. Clark.—Where is it? Why do'nt you furnish it 1 Have you got on bad terms with the Canal ? Is there a little faction in your family after all At any rate tell us WHERE'S TILE Liar / BIG WALKER. Mr. dcanit :---I can inform you that the au thor of the communication in the last Globe, signed "A Little Walker Whig," is a professed Democrat of Ciis town. He was on the Dem ocratic ticket at one time, and is now playing disorganizer by opposing the regular nominee for the Legislature. I have never voted with your party; I am a Democrat from principle, but when I hear afellow like this talking about Whigs lounging at the corners and on counters, I cannot refrain from telling the people who he is, and the kind of service he has heretofore per formed for the Democrats. It was this He would profess to sympathize with the Whigs, and agree that all their measures, the Tariff', po sition on the Mexican war, &c., &c., were cor rect, and even intimate that he would support their candidates. Hence, Whigs would talk pretty freely about party arrangements in his presence. This he soon discovered, and when ever he would see a few Whigs together of an evening, he would sneak among them, and glean all the secrets he could, and then forthwith car ry the information to us. In this way he made himself serviceable, and indeed indispensable to us, as he was the only man in our party mean and jesuitical enough for such service. You will confer a favor on a Democratic sub scriber by giving the above an insertion. lam h Democrat, but as out party is determined on mischief this year, I think I should not help • them along, and will therefore vote the whole I Whig ticket, commencing with HenryM. Fuller. A DEMOCRAT OF HUNTINGDON. 13:7 JOHN Mesa, Esq., has been re-ncmina• ted for the Legislature by the locofocos of Cen tre county. It is thought by many that he may succeed in being re-elected. CLAIRVOYANCE AND CHOLERA.-Dr. Pierce,a well-known Clairvoyant lectur er, died at Watertown, Wisconsin, on the 17th ult., of cholera. Two days before his death he issued a handbill, of fering to tell by clairvoyance, "to moral certainty, whether an individual had any predisposition to cholera or any other disease," and professing his ability to cure "without fail" all who might apply to him. During his sickness he , made use of none of his own remedies. BILLY BOWLEGS, the Seminole chief, has sent a white flag to the commandant at Tampa Bay, expressing a desire for peace, and proposing to hold a council at the next full moon. It is now gener ally believed that the difficulties will soon be over, and that the parties in the late outrage will be surrendered. The United States troops, three hundred, in number, would await at Fort Brooke the result of the council.

GARNETT, a color ed clergyman of much talent, is about to sail for Europe, for the purpose of lecturing on slavery. He is opposed to the Garrison school of abolitionism, and differs from Frederick Douglass in many particulars. Mllnwood Academy. Col. Ciisali—Through your valuable paper, I write to inform its many readers of an institu tion which has lately sprung up in our county, and one of which the county can be justly proud, Milnwood Academy, in Dublin township. It is located at the base oj Shade Mountain in the neautiful valley of Tuscarora, whose elevation is so high, and the air so pure, that chills and fever are unknoWn to any of the inhabitants in the vicinity of this young institution of learning. The people, too, of that portion of our county which surrounds Milnwood, are a church-going people ; are industrious and hospitable ; and possessing a high moral gone, they will com pare well with the citizens of any other part of the county. Such are the people with whom the youth instructed in this institution will have to associate. The Academy is conducted by the Rev. J. Y. McGinnis, who is bland and courteous in his deportment, possesses indomitable energy, and is one of the most eloquent and learned preach ers belonging to tine Presbyterian church. The Professor, J. H. W. McGinnis, it learned, digni• fled, and courteous. Under sucin instructors, Parents and Guardians may expect a high de gree of moral and mentel training ; in this I feel assured they will not be disappointed, as the writer of these few crude remarks was a visiter at their late and first exhibition, Which look place on the 12th inst. Early in the day you could see the cititens coming from all directions, throngihg, every tho roughfare-;—exhibiting a taste and style in their appearance, and an urbanity and self-compla cency in theit deportment, which satisfied all that they were fully impressed with the impor tance of the little nursery of science ; and that they had resolved to give it, in its infancy, their undivided support. Precisely at two °lock the pupils of Milnwood were marched two and two, by the 'Rev'd McGinnis, to the Presbyterian church, in which the were not less than five hundred people assembled; after all Were pro vided with seats, filling everypart of a fine new church, and order restored, the Rev. J. Y, Mc- Ginnis addressed Almighty God in behalf of those young men entrusted to his charge, in a strain of the most fervid eloquence, after which a hymn, selected fur the occasion, was sung by the cheit belonging to the church With great sweetnessmiany Of the singers exhibiting as melodious voices as the writer ever heard. The young men then made their appearance on the stage, in the order of the published pro gramme. Allow me to say, that it was with much difficulty thnt cheering was kept in bourds. The young men all performed their parts admi rably, and many of them spoke with a precision and distinctness of enunciation, that would have done credit to older and more experienced heads, many di thein exhibiting a degree of talent that would satisfy the patriot of this day, that the infant institution of Milnwood will send out from her walls learning, patriotism, and a high toned moral feeling. In conclusion, alio* roe most earnestly to recommend to all Parents and Guardians, having boys to instruct in the higher branches of learn ing, to send them to this institution—it being the only one in our county. You can keep them almost as cheaply at Mlinwood as you can at home in idleness, where they will grow up in ignorance, alike injurious to themselves and to society, and a reproach to their Parents and Guardians. W. For the treurnal. General Taylor at Mercer. Warren Delegation—The Charge by .hfr, Gen. Taylor was welcomed with much enthusiasm at Mercer, Pa. and a delige lion from Warren, Ohio, was in atten dance. Gen. Taylor made a short speech to the multitude, and the editor of the Trumbull County Whig, who was pres ent, says: "When Gov, Johnston had concluded, the President and himself were introdu , ced into the Hotel, where they received the congratulations of the people until tea-time. Tho delegation from this place waited upon the President in form and were received in the most cordial manner. He had a great many inqui ries to make with regard to the industri al pursuits of the Reserve, its dairy farms, its adaption to agriculture gen erally, its mineral resources, &c. all of which showed him clearly conversant with the topics introduced. " "The matter of Mr. Giddings and his charge with regard to the President's using his influence in favor of Walker's amendment, came up in the course of conversation. The General said he had been entirely misrepresented by Mr• Giddings in this particular—that the first intimation he had of influencing members of Congress was conveyed to him in the published charge of Mr. Gid dings, He had never sent for a single I member of Congress for the purpose of conversing with them on this topic, and out of the large number who called upon him after his arrival in Washing ton, the California question was men tioned but rarely, and then only as the conversation happened to take that turn. He owned to being anxious that Califor nia should have some government beside the bowie-knife and pistol, but said he had never expressed a preference for the amendment of Mr. Walker ever that of any other. He remarked in this con nection, that the people of the North need have no apprehension of the further exten sion of Slavery—that the necessity of a third party organization on this score would soon be obviated ; with other ob servations too significant to be misun derstood."—Cleveland(o.)

By an arrival In this city, we learrl that an express froth Santa Fe and Los Vegas, had arrived at Fort Leavenworth on the let of Sethtember, with the fol lowing highly important intelligence. The express left Santa Fe on the 15th and Los Vegas on the 16th Of August. . . . . On the latter day a band of 40 Apache Indians attacked Capt. Jeundas' forced at Los Vegas, and after a sharp fight were repulsed, losing all but ten kv drz riors. These Indians were recognized as a party who had committed previous deprodations—violating their treaties with the Government. On the first fire the Indians broke, and were pursued by the troops through the broken country some 8 or 10 miles; The fight was hand to hand. The Indi , ens were well mounted and prepared for a fight. Six prisoners were taken. Lieut Burnside, sergeant Ambrose and private Meader were wounded. Major Chevalie had another fight with the Camanches nt the Copper Mines on the 17th ofJ uly. The Major's party killed upwards of 50 Indians—took 200 prisoners, and captured 500 mules.— The Major lost but one man. Col Washington is fiery critically situated nt Santa Fe. He is surrounded by at least fifty thousand hostile Indians arid some fears are entertained that he will be attacked by an overwhelming force. By order of Col Washington month a ly mail has been established, which leaves Ft. Leavenworth and Santa Fe ort the fifteenth of every month. Great Excitement in St. Louis ST. Louis, Sept. 14. On Wednesday last, Mrs. "Waken a German woman, disappeared in a very tnysterious manner. Search was made for her, but in vain. Yesterday some person found some articles of female clothing near the Medical College, which were recognized tis belonging to Mrs. M. This soon raised a large crowd, and it being generally believed that the wo man had been kidnapped by some of the students, great excitment prevailed.— The mob swelling, threats were made to tear down the College. In the mean time a search Warrant was issued, and the College thoroughly examined, but no trace was found to justify the belief that Mrs. M. had been decoyed into the building. A portion of the mob continued to loiter about the College during the night, but the presence of the authorities restrained them from any act of violence. Giddings, CANADIAN INDEPENDENCE.—The move meet in behalf of Canadian independence has become more marked and open.— Mr H. B. Wilson, who has been for some years prominently connected witlt provincial politics, has issued the pro spectus of a new semi , weekly paper to be called the "Canadian Independent," which he proposes to issue at Hamilton and Toronto—chiefly designed "to pro. mote, by peaceable means, separation from the Mother Co untry." In Lower Canada the feeling in favor of indepen dence is almost unanimous, and the public press has taken the lead in its advocacy. In Upper Canada a large pro portion of the inhabitants are said to entertain similar sentiments, although from their subserviency to pary par poses the journals avoid the subject.— , The opinion is also expressed that the , English Government will concede inde , pendence when eter it shall be asked, by a majority of the people,—Philu. News. FORTUNG'S CHANGES.-A few days since a young gentleman related to us the following: He said that his mother was speaking in the evening, at the so cial home circle, of fortune's changes, and remarked, "that in , her girlhood, at a social party, where there was music and dancing, a young, blue-eyed, light. haired boy asked her to once. She t i refused, and thought him rater pres. ming as he was the son of a. acksmith, and site the daughter of C t.--a Militia Captain. There wa r s a differ. ence in their social positio\That boy is the prisent Governor °At assachus. etts." -: ..", A Terrible Scene. • A letter from Laramie, to the St. Lott• is Republican, speaking of the grave's on the plains, says : "Scores have been passed which have no identity placed over their remains, and have not been enumerated in any catalogue. The graves that 1 saw, bad been dug up by the wolves, the bodies dragged to the surface, and the' limbs and fragments scattered all around.— From this place west, the sickness did not follow the trains as far as heard from." The Mexican correspondent of the Delta says another revolution in that country is on the tapis. The Deli% further says, several Mexicans gentle= men are now in New Orleans, on their way to Jamaica, for the purpose of invi ting Santa Anna to return to that coun try. r pAs the Queen entered Cork an Irishman shouted 'Arrah, Victory; stand up, and let's look at you.' Her majesty rose, when he exclaimed 'God bless yon for that, me darlin't.'
