[1:7" The proper books for the registra tion of marriages, births, and deaths, have been received by our county Register, who is now prepared to record all that may be sent in to him. It will be remembered that the new registry law makes it the du ty of physcians, clergymen, justi 3es of the peace, &c., to keep a record of certain facts and circumstances relative to mar riages, deaths, &e., and return the same to the county Register; and that a neglect of this duty subjects them to a penalty. For the convenience of those concerned we have prepared Blank Certificates which can be had at the Journal office or of Mr. Campbell, the Register, at his office. Price, 3 etc. single, or 25 etc. a dozen. the Free Bridge Again. It will be remembered, that a year or two since, when free and toll Bridge had a strife at Harris burg, that an act was passed; authorizing the sale of to// bridges to counties, on certain conditions, to wit : the choice of referees by the Bridge Com pany and the County, and a valuation by them of the Bridge in question. We understand, that some time during the past fall, the Huntingdon Bridge Company and the Huntingdon County Commissioners, chose refer ees, who, at their meeting, valued the Bridge at $3OOO, reserving the toll house. This proposal I wits then made to the county, and the Commis li - shiners refused Mut offer, but made another ono; at a somewhat less valuation, which was not ac cepted by the Bridge Company. Subsequently, however, we understand, the County Commission ers recinded their resolution, refusing to accept the offer of the Bridge Company, and passed an other agreeing to accept the offer of the Bridge at $3OOO, including the toll house, &e. We hare since been informed that owing to a change in the hoard of Commissioners since the last election, the board Mr the present refuse to execute the honds for the price; and here the matter rests. As an item of 'IOWA, in which every tax payer is interested, we give our readers the facts as near as we recollect them. Broad Top Again. "The Broad Top Mountain nail Road and Coal Company" is :to longer a doubtful affair. As we predicted, inunctliately after the public meeting on Court week, tie subscribers paid up their first in stalment; at least enough of them, in two days, to comply with the requirements of law, and to authorize the Governor to issue letters patent.— The necessary certificate was immediately for warded to the Executive, who promptly issued them. The Company now is; and we call upon all subscribers, who have not yet paid up, to come in soon, or they will loose an opportunity to vote at the first election of officers. An immediate or panization of the Company will take place, and nefire measure, taken to make the rood. Our Defeat--Why was It! Thus far, attire the November election, we have not attempted to assign any reasons for the un looked for defeat of our party and its candidates. True, we, like many others, might have suppose I certain things ministered to that result, without having any reasons for that supposition, other than the notions which our own disappointed and suddenly excited feelings conjured up; and in do- ing so, we might have done injustice to those who were as zealous and as anxious as ourselves.— Now, the noise of the strife has died away;—the smoke of the battle has been dispelled; end our feelings have been calmed, and chastened, by the utter overthrow. Submissive patience, enables us to cast about ns, with a desire to see, what, if any, special causes brought about the result. There are possibly two classes of causes main ly instrumental of our defeat, viz : External umd internal—those outside, and those inside, of the Whig party. Tu the former of which we shall now, for a few moments, ask the attention of our readers. Our opponents, the modern Democracy, are a tireless .and indomitable crowd. Many years ago, one of their high priests said, they were held to gether by the "eo-hcsive power of plunder," and• though we are not disposed to use the slang of partisanship, to offend, still we cannot presume that this picture, as painted by one of their fam ily, is offensive, and we shall take it for granted that it is correct. Our readers, do nut all of them see, how they maintain their cohesive qualities. They know only, that at times, their party seems severed, and the two, three, or more factions, are busy in every kind of ill mannered abuse of the other fragments; and they know,:that though these tends secs as deadly as they were of uld, between highland clans; still in the twinkling of an eye; the stern brow, the curled lip, the flashing eye, and the abusive tongue, all meet and mingle into silence, and placid pence; and in another moment they are all together, and pulling with a will for one common purpose. Our readers see this, but all of them do not know why it is so. Well, we can tell. Loco Focoism has but one end to attain. It matters not how wildly and mad ly its severed fragments may fight; Cass am , his friends may call Buchanan and his followers fed eralists, and fools,—Buchanan and his adherents, may in turn, call Cass and his admirers, old A)g iev and factionists—and both, and all, may join in pointing at Douglass, and his pets, as pot-house politicians; and they in turn, send bark the bil lings gate, with interest. Yet with all this, each and every of them, have but one purpose—they aim at one end—the spoils. To secure them, they unite at a word. Their hatred is forgotten in the hot pursuit. When the game is fairly up, like hounds its a hunt, they spend no time in quarrel ling, but each seeks to out strip the other in the chase. Loco Focoisin has an appetite for party spoils, that nothing else will appease. In every walk of life, where you find any spoils to divide, it enters. into the contest as an element, of itself—no mat ter where—in church or State. That party never looses an opportunity to give to the hungry a crumb, to excite, if not to allay, that appetite. In every township election, they seek to elect is. Con stable, Overseer, or Supervisor; even in the choice of an Arbitrator, for the same cause, they name one of their kind. This is a fixed principle of their party economy. The great captains and the little corporals, all have an eye to party power, and party organisation, in the dispensing of any favor; and with it they inculcate the certain truth, that such favors are only diSpensed to their party friends. Thus. they marshal' a force that no or dinary means can weaken or win. This, then, is the party we had to encounter. with their appetite, fur party ;cottage, sharpened by an abstinence of four years. When the lament ed Taylor succeeded, they bad grown fat, indo lent, and impudent, upon the corn of the public crib; and the people would bear it no longer.— They were dumb-founded by their defeat, but for a moment, we may say, they went at work at once to be ready at the next election, and for four years they have been toiling assiduously, to se cure the end. They had hut one object to attain, and everything was wielded to secure it. Is it to be wondered at, that no one of the causes of our defeat; this adhesive power of plunder is first con sidered', We shall hereafter notice others. Cabinet Making. The letter writers, and newspaper editors are busy making a Cabinet for President Pierce.— Each pretending to be more wise than his neigh bor, when in truth, neither knows any thing, about even the probabilities, of who will form that Cab inet. Any person can guess, but it is only guess work. For our part, we dont care who he calls around him as constitutional advisers. The pol icy of his party is well understood, and we have no doubt that he will select saris a Cabinet, as will maintain that policy, in such a way, as will satis fy even. the "practical allies" who surround the British Queen. Death's Doings. The fathers of the Commonwealth are rapidly disappearing from our midst. In the brief space of a week, no less than three of uur old and distinguished public men have been called away from amongst us.— Ex-Governor Shultz, who died at Lancas ter on Tuesday a. week.ago, at the ripe age of 80 years; Ilon. John Sergeant, at Phil adelphia, on Tuesday last, aged 7a years; and lieu. Walter Forward, of Pittsburg, in his 65th year. Perhaps no three indi viduals could now be named in the State, who have enjoyed a larger share of public regard and esteem, or who have received such marked evidences of public confidence, without stooping to any of the arts of po litical trickery by which the mere dema gogue too often succeeds in flattering the multitude and securing for himself an ephemeral distinction. Peace be to their memories. Ca" Sec first and fourth pages for interesting reading matter. Our Common Schools. It will be a source of lasting gratitude to some of Pennsylvania's Statesmen, that when the friends of Common Schools ap peared to be in a minority in the State, they dared, to urge and advocate theSehool System. The names of Thaddeus Stevens and George Wolf, should never be forgot ten by the friends of Common Schools; and that system itself, as it has gradually grown in beauty and strength, will be their proud est, and most enduring monument. We do not know, that we were ever more impressed with the truth of the above, than on the occasion of the Exhibition of the boys, in the School of Mr. Barr, on last Tuesday evening. It is very rare, that in children of their age, you see greater man ifestations of application and success. A very large number of the boys of his school took part in the exercises; and we never saw a school, composed of boys of their age, get up an Exhibition which passed off with so much eclat.. Each seemed to give evi dence that ho tried to win the praises of teacher, parents, and public; and it was truly gratifying to the teacher and his pu pils, to receive such assurances of the pub lic, that they had succeeded. The Town Hall was crowded to excess, and after having stood upon our feet till fatigued, we were compelled to leave be fore the exercises were concluded; and we regret to say, without having the pleasure of hearing the address of H. 13. Swoope, Esq., who had kindly consented to deliver one appropriate to the occasion. Of what we know of the ability of Mr. Swoops, and what we have heard of his effort, we are confident that it was highly creditable, and calculated to give all, a higher estimate of his powers, as a writer and speaker. A word to the boys themselves. We were pleased, gratified, with your efforts, at speaking "in public on the stage•" Still you can do better, and you, we know, will thank us for the hint, as to how—next time speak a little slower and articulate a little more distinctly. Advice to Flibtist lets. Now that the great day of Flibustering is about to dawn in earliest, and the gentle men in that line are likely to have their hands full of business and their beads full of excitement, a word of advice from a mere spectator, oven if not kindly taken, may be found profitable in the way of sa ving useless expenditure of labor, money and life. Therefore, 1. If you want Cuba, buy it if you can; don't stand about the price; double Mr. Polk's offer of a hundred and eighty mill ions and soon, up to a sum sufficient to entice the Spanish Government to sell out. In that way you make sure at once of extending the area of freedom and add ng two new Senators to the invincible pha ;anx of the Slave power. Wo know this is lot what you want to do. You want to Texanize Cuba. But you can't. The Span iards are too much for you, aided, as in the last extremity they will be, by halt a mill ion of infuriated negroes. It will never do to drive them into abolishing the patriar chal institution. What would Cuba be worth to the Model Repub.io with five hundred thousand free blacks among her citizens ? And what effect would a negro State in that neighborhood have upon the peace and glory of our (wn Southern brethren? You see the thing is impossi ble, and like prudent men you will give it up, or at least postpone it till 1856, when it will make a good war-cry for the Do mleracy. 2. Having thus laid Cuba aside for the present, your thoughts will naturally diH rect themselves toward St. Domingo.—' There the chances are better. Prepara-. tions, it is said, have already boon made to colonize that interesting island. A stea mer is bought, or to be bo•ight, and eight hundred whole-souled flibustiers are to move out there on tense highly advantage ous for themselves. We don't know wheth er our old friends Duff and Ben. E. Green are the engineers of this enterprise, but it would not be discreditable even to their genius and experience. The Colonists go as the champions of freedom in a double, or rather in a treble sense. In the first place they will defend republicanism as embodied in the Dominican Republic; in the second place they will cotnbat monar chy and despotism, as embodied in his Ma jesty Faustin, the Emperor of llayti, and in the third place they will finally reestab lish Slavery in Dominica and annex the same as a new negro market, to our own glorious confcderatiin. Thus they will accomplish all that a true-born flibustier could desire, and till up the measure of their own asl•irations. 3. But even this brilliant picture has its dark- side- You willrequire a great many flibustiers. to reest ahliqh Slavery 'there, and what with yellow fewer and other little in cidents of such an enterprise, it will be ex pensive. It will also have serious compli cations in its train. Suppose Dominica converted into a United State, what is to become of Hayti? Shall we make war on and conquer its million or so of people ( And after conquest, what shall we do then! Annex them also to the Union as a free State? Or make slaves of them and divide them among the conquerors after the good old patriarchal style ? As for instance : To Capt. (Gen.) Isaiah Rynders a village with 1,000 head; to Senator (President ?) Douglas a village with 200 head; to Henry B. Stanton a plantation with 50 head ; to Gen. Cass a large drove, with a tract of wild land; and so on till all the heroes of pure Democratic flibustierism have had their share. But as we said, this move ment would be difficult in some respects, and we accordingly advise its postponement along with that of Cuba. 4:But in Mexico there are none of these hinderances, and you may fall to without hesitation. All the northern part of the country may be had with good management without much trouble, and what will be more grateful to your feelings, without danger. The States of Sonora, Chihuahua, Coahuila, New-Leon, Tamaulipas, Duran go, and perhaps San Luis Potosi, should first be struck at. As the Camanches are already carrying on a pretty potent war against the Mexicans in those States, the flibustiers would do well to make a little arrangement with them for operations on joint account. The six or seven provinces could be revolutionized in the course of next summer or autumn, and Slavery be established in them in season for their an nexation before the Thirty-third Congress has closed its first session. It is true that this would be rather quick work, but prac ' tice makes perfect and public opinion is ripe for tho event. At least three full grown States could be got out of the batch, with six Senators, besides others in pros pect, suJicient to balance all the free states likelyt.WOme in for 41f a century. Thus the Union will be preserved, while the look for private plunder is excellent This, then, is the plan for the flibustiers to adopt. It is worth a dozen of any they can lay against Cuba or St. Domingo.— Those may be good for future elections, but this is good for immediate practical use. And meanwhile, as long as the prsent Ad ministration is in power, and until they can get themselves well organized and fit ted out, our friendly advice to the common run of individuals among them is, in any little jobs of flibustiering they may under take on personal risk and account, to take care and keep out of the hands of the law. ..Vew York Weekly Tribune. Paying for a Nevitspaper, The Germantown Telegraph very truly says: Except when the cash system is ex clusively adopted and rigidly observed, we know of no business in which its bills are so difficult to collect, as subscription to a newspaper. This is not because subscri bers are unwilling to pay; but it is princi pally owing to pore neglect. Each one imagines that, because his year's indebted nesss amounts to so small a sum, the prin ter surely cannot be very badly in want of that, without a moment thinking that the fruits of his entire business are made up exactly of such little sums, and that the aggregate of all the subscribers is by no means an inconsiderable amount of money, and without which the publisher could not, for a single month, continue the issue of his paper. STRAWS Snow, &e.—The Pottsville Register, well known to be the mouthpiece of the Secretary of the Commonwealth, gives a list of names for Cabinet officers, commencing thus: BUGLER ! ! Buchanan and Dallas of Pennsylvania, &c. On this the Daily News remarks : As it is no less a true than an old saying that straws show which way the wind blows, we may be al lowed to infer from this announcement that Gov. Bigler is a eandidinate for a Secretr ryship. We know he is, as lie has a right to be, an aspiring man, but still we had not supposed his ambition to be quite so vaulting as to have himself put forward in competition with such old stagers as Bu chanan and Dallas. It may be however that It is only the work of his aspiring Sec retary, who would doubtlessly be quite willing to take his place as Governor. A few months more, and we shall have some queer developments, some very smiling fa ces, and a great many more whose visages will indicate fire and fury against Pierce and his Cabinet. "Napoleon III:, Tho steamer America arrived at Halifax on Wednesday. The most interesting in telligence is that which concerns the ar rangements for the proclamation of the French Empire. . . On the . Bth inst. the French Senate; adopted, by a vote of 86 to 1, a “Senatus Cansultum" providing that Louis Napole on be proclaimed Emperor under the title of "Napoleon III."

Should this expedition succeed in its un uertaking, and establish commercial rela tions between the United States and that extensive and secluded nation, it will rich ly repay the risk and expenditure incurred.' important Revelations. The National Intelligencer publishes ti corespondence between James Buchannni while Secretary of State, and the Hon R. M. Saunders, our then Minister at the Spanish Court, from which it appears that an oveture was made during Mr. Polk's Administration to purchase Cuba, and that the offer was made by the President upon his own responsibility: though the heavi ness of the acquisition might well have sug gested the propriety of consulting at least the Senate, if not both Houses of Congress, before placing so vast a power in the hands of our Minister to Spain. Nothing was needed to the success of this overture but a willingness on the part of the Govern ment of Spain to part with the richest jew el of its crown. The proposition was promptly, courteously, but absolutely de clined. How it has happened, says the Intellgen cer, that this interesting document, though sent to Congress in reply to a specific call, has not earlier seen the light, is explained only by the indifference on the part of the House of Representatives to communications made by the Executive, though called for by itself; in consequence of which this Presidential Message lay on the table for six or seven weeks without being opened, and, when opened, it was, without any ex amination of its contents, ordered to be printed for the use of the members. Such was the state of the printing question in Congress at that time, that the House might, for any information that it would afford, as well have condemned the docu ment to the flames. Under the more re cent arrangement for doing the printing of Congess, this document has at last, and only recently, issued from the Cangressional press. CONFESSION AFTER — ELECTION.—The Democracy of Washington celebrated their victory in the Presidential election last Friday evening, by an illumination and prc cession. A correspondent of the New York Times, describing the affair, says the following are specimens of the sentiments expressed in transparencies at residences of leading men of the party: The Acquisition of Cuba by Purchase. Reduction of the Tariff.

Dyspep sia, heart-hurn, lons of appetite, nausea, nervous tremors, relaxation, debility, &c, are relieved, by the Bitters in a very short space of time; and a persevo :Ince in their use never fails to work a thorough yore.
