Locofoco Canal Commissioners.
Very serious damage was done to the
canal by the late flood in the Juniata river,
and it was of the utmost importance to the
trade and transporting business of the
Commonwealth that the injuries should ho
promptly, carefully, and economically re
paired. As an evidence of how faithfully
the people's interests are attended to by
tho Locofoco officers who are charged with
the superintendence of the public works,
the Harrisburg American says, with regard
to the accident to the canal above refer
red to :
We learn that about one, thousand men
are employed in repairing the break. Do
the public know that not one of the Canal
Commissioners has been or is present, at
tending to the interests of the State, ur
ging on the work and keeping a strict
watch upon the disbursing officers ? Messrs
Gamble and Painter are traversing the
State, electioneering for William Bigler,
and William T. Morrison is on a visit to
Cape May ! The Clerk of the Board has
made estimates of the amount of money
which will be required for the repair, and
on his sole action, unrevised by the Canal
Board, the public money is drawn from
the Treasury to the comfortable tune of
thirty thousand dollars!
The telegraphic returns are considered
decisive of Gen. Cambell's election, as
Governor, over the present incumbent, Gov.
Trousdale. This is another Union triumph.
Gon. Campbell and his political friends
planted themselves, in the late canvass, on
the Compromise platform, discarding all
sympathy with Southern secession and
Northern aggression. They were the
avowed friends of the present Administra
tion supporting Mr. FILLMORE, not so
much because he is a Whig in sentiment,
as for his prompt stand against the " high
er law" faction of his own State, and his
determined purpose to execute the Union
measures of the last Congress in spirit as
well as to the lettei.
AN HONEST .tunn;.—The Hon. Wm.
D. Kelly, of the Philsdelphia Court of
Quarter Sessions, at a temperance meeting
last week, stated "that ho was now in the
midst of a criminal court. And that with
out an exception every case that had conic
before him, replied directly from intem
perance, and that the nine hundred and
ninety-nine thousandth of all criminal ea
ses were indirectly the result of intemper
ate use alcoholic stimulants."
There is the testimony of a man of hon
or, untrammelled by the power of appe
tite. Look at it, tax-payers!
