Rail Road Meeting,
On Thursday evening of but week, a meeting
was held in the Court Honse to consider the con
dition of the Broad Top Rail Road project, and
to secure the adoption of the ways and means to
secure the immediate organization of the Compa-
The lion. James tiwin, the Temp orary Treas
urer, reported that there is now needel but the
payment of the first instalment upon a few more
shares, to be enabled to obtain letters patent.'
The meeting was then ull re so,l by . William
Ayers, Esq., of Danphin county, B. B. Petriken ,
John Scott, T. I'. Campbell, A. W. Benedict'
John Williamson, and David Blair, Esqrs . And
we aro happy to say that the remarks of the sev
eral speakers were received with evident marks of
interest and approbation, and the right spirit
seemed to prevail.
We speak with great confidence, when we say
that the stock holders will pay up at once, and
that before another month "The Broad Top Munn
tain Coal and Buil Road Company." will have a
place among the things that are. The right spir
it in awakened and is at work,
Will not the citizens of this county, in every
township, come up to the work? The building
of this road will add to the taxable property of
this county, a million of dollars, and thus actual
ly reduce the taxes of all, besides many other ad
vantages which will result to the whole comma-
()no hundred thousand dollars is already sub
scribed, which is enough to grade the road, and
the work will go on. To every good citizen, we
say, come up and help us.
• That sum has since been paid in.
A Time for All Things.
There is always, in the title of liftman affairs,
an aptness in the choice of the time for the accom
plishment of desired ends, which gives an energy
to the means, and not only promises, but procures.
Friends, united fur a conanon purpose, by kin
dred sympathies, although they may be widely
separated by space, feel, we doubt not, the power
of those magnetic influences which often furnishes
the evidence of spiritual presence, and it toy he,
is truly the first movings of what, in the ordinary
parlance of our day, are called rappings. They
love to think alike, and act together.
We are not often disposed to philosophize, but
as our friend Sedwick, of the Telegraph, would
say, we are now philosophically inclined—not a
laughing philosophy, fur we feel that the last elec
tion was no laughing matter. Alone in our office
—no crying children—no scolding wife—no cap
tious client—no political aspirant—none of these
keen irritants of good nature near; too proud to
beg—too honest to steal—just poor enough to he
independent. We feel that we soon shall be, if
we are not now, a philosopher; and sitting so alone,
those two thoughts, which appear in the first two
paragraphs of this article, loomed up into our men
tal vision; and following each, came a long train
of attendants. Could we do otherwise than to
marshall the array for our readers.
A time for evert thing! aye, a fitting time. Now
for instance, are we poor Whigs defeated. Ours
is the time of, and the time for, sorrow. It is our
privilege, our duty, to be becomingly sad over the
defeat of ono of the purest men of our age—one
to whom our people owe a debt of gratitude, no
act of theirs eon ever pay. But there is a becom
ing time for sadness. We should not let our sighs
be heard by those who love ingratitude, and hate
the good and great. They would be glad over our
regrets. Our time for sorrow should be sacred
to ourselves; and that sorrow should bind us, as
with Woks of steel, to each other and to the un
changing principles and purposes of our party.
A time for rm.!, thing ."ritere is a time to re
joice! So say, and so feel, our political oppo
nents. Listen to their hurrahs !—see the glare of
their rockets unit torches. They have chosen
their time to rejoice—they imagine it is a fitting
one. All over our land their shouts of rejoicing
have rung in the ears of all. The last week may
truly be called, their week of rejoicing. The
question naturally arises—lf there be a time for
every thing,—is this a proper time for them to re
Friends, whose hopes, whose fears, whose sym
pathies, whose feelings are n111:e, should on till
possible occasions, be together, and mingle their
bozannahs, in one 4vellingaong of rejoicing, when
their hopes are realized; their fears removed, their
sympathies excited, and their feelings aroused by
the reality that all danger is past.
In our country now, we have seized the light
nings, and harnesses theta to thought; and away
over our high mountains, deep vallies; and broad
praries, hurries this messenger, with his tidings
ofjoy and gladness for them. The shouts of vic
tory, the winds are too slow to carry. Lightning
has gathered ita ten thousand echos, and like flash
es of sun-light, they are seen in one moment over
our broad land. Here friends can rejoice together.
The friends of Pierce, in the United States,
have profited by the means, and hare sought to
lift up their voices in one united and prolonged
song of "Great is Diana of the Ephesians"—They
have the right to do so. We don't care. We have
beard that kind of thunder before. That is not
what we aro wiiting about. There is a time for
every thing—a proper time—a right time, and we
are enquiring,—have they chosen the riihf
We answer no! Most emphatically, NO Weed.
Do you ask why not 1 Listen ;
The Telegraphic wire has not yet spanned the
Atlantic—and far over its dark waters, are ninny
thousands of the TAMA, Knights, Dukes, and sub
jects of England's proud and prolific Queen, who
sympathised deeply with Pierce and his part•
here. They considered him it "practical allg," di
carry out the measure's and policy of the British
Alinistry—The English press which l'elt such deep
solicitude for Pierce's suceess—•-The British man
ufiteturer, who hopes fir it continued market for his
misery•mode-manufactures—all—all these allies
of the Pierce party, have not yet heard at the
crowning victory of their friends, on this side of
the water. They can not rejoice with them—
theit voices are still silent? They are ignorant of
the happiness of their brethreui and the univer
sality of the rejoicing is destroyed/ Now, are we
not right 7
If there is a proper tinte for every thing; if kin
dred sympathies should enjoy the fellowship of a
oneness of thought. Ought not the friends of
Pierce, on this side the Atlantic, put off their re
joicing until their British Free Trade allies could
have sent up their Democratic incense at the Mlle

No Education without Labor.
Costly apparatus and splendid cabinents have
not the magical poWer to make scholars. Every
man is as mucir the maker of his own mind ns the
artificer of his own fortune. The Creator has so
formed the human intellect that it can only grow'
by its own action; and by its own action it will, it
must grow and expand. Every man must, there
fore, educate ::imself. His books and teachers are
only helps; the work n,;:st be essentially his own.
No man is educated until he :las the ability to
summon, in any emergency, all his meatal pow
ers, into vigorous exercise. It is by no means tit
man who has seen, heard, or rend most, who can
do this. Such a one is in danger of being borne
down llke.a beast of burden, by a groat moss of,
other men's thoughts. Nor is it the man of great
est native vigor and capacity. The greatest of
all the warriors in the siege of Troy, hail not the
pre-eminence because nature had given him
strength and enabled him to carry the largest bow,
but because self-discipline had taught him how to
use that bow. And just so. the youth who has
acquired the greatest power of using the talents
God has given him, is the best educated. Any
system of instruction which does not recognise
this truth, or is not based on this principle, is de
ceptive, delusive, and unworthy the confidence and
patronage of the public.
r When our political opponents flatter the
conduct of any Whig, it is generally a geed rea
son why such a Whig should examine carefully,
that conduct. This is a sound maxim.
The Philadelphia News, assigns certain reasons
for the defeat of the Whig party, at our Presiden
tial election, \Odell are carefidly copied at length,
by the Loco Foco paper of this town, with a
grateful acknowledgment to our neighbor of the
News, fur his "aid and comfort." This we think
would make our friend Flannigan, ashamed of his
company. We always prefer to see our friends
copy our editorials and praise them, not our foes.
It is better evidence that we are in the right track.
I PETER HmtvEr.—Much curiosity has
been expressed as to the Peter Harvey
whom Mr. Webster on his death-bed en
treated not to leave him to the last. We
understand that he is a quiet merchant of
Boston—a great admirer of Mr. Webster,
sod reputed to have been useful to him in
his former pecuniary necessities. He is
the person through whom Mr. W. is re
ported to have sent a dying request to Mr.
Choate not to vote for Gen. Scott. If he
did send such a message, Mr. Choate dis
' regarded it, and voted the straight Whig
ticket. Mr. Peter Harvey, however, voted
for Pierce and King.
The Express gives the following almost in
credible picture of the abominable outra
ges which were submitted to by the au
thorities of N. Y. city at the Prsidential
"We saw on Tuesday last old grey-head
ed men, men of standing in the community,
grandsires, men of worth and respectabili
ty, whose appearance should bo their pro
tection, beset by the ribald crew and shov- •
ed and jostled and buffetted about past all
endurance; ail sorts of tricks thrust upon
them, and solicited to vote for this man
and hat, and advised as to the principles
of different parties, by dirty, drunken,
blackguard boys, who had not int2lligence
enough to comprehend the mystery of a
mouse-trap, and the footed smell of whose
breath was enough to turn the stomach of
a pig. Wo saw the entrance to the polls
in one of the districts in a certain ward
completely blockaded with these despera
does, and the passage of every decent-look
ing man interrupted, while the police stood
by laughing at tho 'fun.' We saw a drunk
en Irishman, whose vote had been challen
ged, and sworn in by him, stand at the polls
and perseveringly challenge the vote of
every decent-looking man who presented
himself to exercise his right, and conduct
himself in the most disorderly and indecent
manner possible, without the slightest in
terference from those who were placed
there to preserve order, and protect order
loving citizens iu the exercise of their dear
"We also saw in the day a candidate for
an office of secondaryiniportance come to
the polls for the purpose of seeing that 'all
was right,' and that his friends were 'work
ing' for him; no sooner had he jumped
from his wagon than these harpies beset
him on every side, for the purpose of 'stri
king' him—as it is called in their classic
vocabulary—for money. Soule wanted
five dollars, others two, others one, and a
few less vocarions, but quite as persevering
and willing tc accept the slightest favors,
insisted upon getting 'a quarter,' 'a shil
len,' or even 'a sixpence,' to get a glass of
boor. The poor candidate was nearly torn
to pieces by these clamorous In„,ars, and
he only escaped front their clutches through
the asistance of two friends, who bore him
away from the vicinity, and, placing him
in his wagon, drove him off. The moment
he was gone the rowdies set up a yell of
derision, calling him 'a mean cuss,' though
he bad distributed all the money among
them he had with him, and, rushing to the
box where his tickets were placed, seized
and tore them up, and then went to the
nearest corner grocery to get drunker than
they were on bad liquor at his expense."
These abuses are not of recent origin.—
They have been tolerated for the last twen
ty-five years, becoming annually aggrava
ted as the irresponsible class of rowdies
and political bullies increases. The Tri
bune tells us that there was no obstaele
whatever on Tuesday to the casting of ille
gal votes by thousands. There being no
registry law, the opportunities aro great
for fraudulent voting, and these opportu
nities are rarely neglected. It may be
said that both parties can avail themselves
of them; but the Whigs, whenever they
have had a chance, have passed a registry
law, Ithich the Democrats have repeelled
as soon as they returned to power. These
abuses aro pregnant with fatal evils to the
caul, of republicanism, and every honest
Democrat will labor to reform them. We
may contrast with pride the spectacle pre
sented at our polls in Boston on a voting
day with the scenes above described. The
man who would venture to insult or incom
mode a voter, whether rich or poor, at our
polls, would soon be put into the hand of
the pollee and punished to the full extent
of the law. Let those who countenance
these flagrant outrages in N. York beware
cf the time when men shall say, give us
rather the, despotism of an individual—of
a Louis Napoleon. if you will—than the
despotism of a drunken, irresponsible mob
of illegal voters.—Republic.
A lato London letter says
Emigration upon a largo scale still con
tinues. The whole population appears to
be adrift. Almost every town and village
is sending some of its people to Australia.
If to this be added the still undiminished
stream from Ireland to the United States,
we shall probably find that not less than
half a million of people will leave the Bri
tish Islands during the present year. The
Government emigration returns show that
sixty-one ships, having on board '21,907
emigrants, left Liverpool for America and
Australia during the month of August.--
The number which left during J uly, was
21,385. The emigration from Liverpool iu
August, 1851, was 16,714; that in August,
1850, 14,296. Those destined for Amer
ica were principally Irish and Germans, the
former preponderating; while the Scotch
formed the majority of persons making their
way to Australia.

Liquor Law in Rhode Island.
The Mayor of Providence sends the Ad
vocate of that city the following statistics,
which are of importance as exhibiting the
working of the new system there : •
Committals to the watch-houso for drunkenness,
and small assaults growing out of drunkenness,
from July 15, to Oct. 19, 1952, Oho first three
month' , under the new liquor law,) 177

Committals to the county jail for ono month

quor law, for State offences, 40
Fur city offences, 32-721
From these statistics it will be seen that
the committals to the watch house and
county jail, for the first three months un
der the new liquor law, are one third less
than during the corresponding months of
last year; and the average monthly com
mittals for those three months aro about
60 per cent. less than for . the month im
On the first of this month, thorn were
but 114 paupers in the Dexter Asylum;
being the smallest number of inmates at
this season of the year since 1845. The
number of inmates on the Ist of Novem
ber, last year , was 146, and that is pre
cisely the average under, at that date, for
the past six years.
The number of insane paupers, support
ed at the Butler Hospital, has also been
considerably reduced. I have not, at this
moment, the papers at hand,front which to
give the exact statistics, but I can safely
say, that the number is about one-fifth
less,(the present number being 44,) and
the cost of their support the last quarter
was three hundred dollars less than the
average for each of the three preceding
quarters. It is true that screralal were
transferred from the Hospital to the Asy
lum, in the month of - June last; but had
nut that transfer been made, the present
number at the Asylum would have been so
many less, and the contrast between this
and former years so much the greater.

FEDERATION OF TILE ISTIIIIus.—For
some time past the leading topic of conver

press, have been the discussion of the In

formation of the Isthmus ipto a Federal
State, and suggestions of annexation to a
more powerful country. Tho matter has
already been brought before the public,
both through the Government at Bogota,
and the "Camara Provincial" in this city.
The Government at Bogota has acted
most liberally in openiti:: the matter for dis

here have acted wisely in summoning the

from China by way of San Francisco, to the
7th of August. The Government had not

horrible story is related of the murder of
fifty thousand persons—men, women and
children—by the rebels, in a successful
assault upon the City Chunchow, The
slaughter is said to have lasted for three
days and three nights. The aooount is not
authenticated. The Chinese emigration to
California appears to bo temporarily chock
ed, probably owing to exaggerated reports
of the unfriendly feelings entertained by
the miners toward Chinamen. The Gov

most beneficial changes for commerce, but
that he has also intimated an intention of

a liberal constitution. By a special decree
Ile has opened the Rivers Plate, Parana and
