    'Now Or Never.
The second Tuesday of Oettibr;says the Daily
News, is rapidly approaching, and it behoves now
every Whig to arouse to a full sense of his duty,
and to delay not a day longerin uniting with those
already engaged in organising our forces and pre
paring for the strum* that is before us. There
is no time now to be lost. But one brief month
remains for the work that hat yet been hardly be
gun. That the issues involved in the next elec
tion, and the offices then to be filled, are of such a
character as to induce every Whig to feel a deep
concern for the success of the Whigparty, we need
hardly state. Why, then, is there not more activ
ity throughout the State? why not more concert
of action and hearty co-operation in the work of
organization to achieve the triumph within oar
reach? We can succeed, if we will. Who among
the Whigs of Pennsylvania, if singled out, would
not be ashamed to acknowledge that he had not
the will? Surely if there ever was ft time when
there Were incentives to do our duty that time is
now. Blessed with a wise and patriotic Whig
chief magistrate of the nation, and a noble and un
swerving Whig Governor of the Oommonwealth,
it shotild ire their enthusiastic delight as it is their
undoubted duty, to rally in their support, and once
more wheel the old Keystone into the Whig line.
But there are other incentives to action besides
those. We have good and true men presented for
our support for the State offices—men who are
Whigs in feeling and sentiment, who are capable
and thithfal, and who deserve the cordial, yea, en
thusiastic support of the entire Whig party of the
State. Why, then, not be active ? Why hesitate ?
Why delay to organize? Remember, Whigs,
now is the time—now or never.
Jenny Lind.
Tickets for the choice seats to the first Concert
given in New York, by Jenny Lind, the Swedish
Nightingale, were put up at auction, and a hatter
named GENIN, proved himself to be the biggest
fool in the crowd by paying $225 for the first
choice. The second choice of seats brought $25;
the third $l5, &c.
The first Concert came off on Wednesday night
last. The receipts were upwards of $27,000, and
the audience so electrified with the music of the
fair songstress that they seemed to regard the
pleasure as "dirt cheap." To add to the enthusi
asm, Barnum came forward before the audience
dispersed and announced that the charming Jenny
had given the whole of her share of the receipts,
amounting to upwards of $lO,OOO, to various so
cieties and public charities, of which the Fire De
partment receives $3,000, the Musical Fund So
ciety $2,000, and various other societies $5OO
each. She seems to be an apt pupil, and is fast
learning Barnum's ways.

MUMMY WHEAT.- , -There is now flowering in

gloriosa. There is also growing there some mum
