The Fate of Sir John Franklin.
By telegraph we have some further particu
lars respecting the melancholy fate of this lost
navigator, learned from the Esquirnaux by Dr.
Rae. It seems that he lost his ships by being
crushed in the ice, while making his way South
to the great Fish river discovered by Captain
Buck, near the outlet of which he and his par
ty-died, leaving an uninlitakable sign of their
sufferings in the mutilated corpses which had
evidently furnished food for their companions.

The People's Triumph. -
We claim this as no party victory. It was
the spontaneous rising of our fellow electors,
teaching the instructive lesson to the would-be
rulers of this county and other parts of this
State, that the time has code when forbear
ance censer; to ben virtue. It was the indig
nant response of an outraged community, to
the recent acts of the administration mid their
servile followers, telling them that there is
still a Northern breast. Let the amninistra
'ion remove the ancient land-marks of freedom,
in territory once dedicated to its cause ; let a
Gowning Congress pass the bill ; let oar troops

tion, beside the Monument of Bunker's Hill ;

dom, spurns the act and proclaims to the dy
nasty at Washington, that she whb gave Presi
dent Pierce a majority of sixteen thousand, can
give to the people's choice a still larger vote.
A Whig Governor is elected by a majority
of about 36,000 over a Democratic incumbent
of great popularity. A Dentaeratic Canal
Commissioner receives a majority of 80,000 or
In Ohio, so long doubtful between the old
parties, the Democratic ticket has been defea
ted by at least 45,000 majority, and not ono
Nebraska member of Congress is elected.
In Indiana, the party in power Into been
annihilated, the American and anti-Nebraska
party sweeping the State and electing all their
candidates. One of the results of this victory
is that a United States Senator is to be cho
sen in place of lion. John Pettit, and it is
believed that the Fusionists have curried a
majority of the Legislature.
The lowa Legislature has an anti-Nebraska
majority in both branches, the Senate not be
ing tied, as had been supposed.
The vote on the Maine Liquor Law, we hare
yet Elk, Potter and Sullivan to hear from.—
Those we have, sum up as follows:
Against the Law,
Pollock for the Presidency.
The overwhelming majority by which Judge
Pollock is made Governor of Pennsylvania,
naturally enough suggests him as a suitable
candidate of the Whigs and Free Democrats for
the Preirdency in 1856.
Pennsylvania has never had a candidate in
nomination for the Presidency. She is fairly
entitled to that honor from her Northern sister
States. The victory she has just 'achieved
clinches her claim, anti the vast capital with
which Pollock would enter the field .marks him
as the man who should certainly carry with
.hini his own State, and command a powerful .
influence in the States which. have just beets
triumphantly carried on the same issue—Ohio,
Indiana, lowa. The Anti-Slavery element,
which has turned the tide and carried these
three great States in equally powerful in New
York, and would find no difficulty is rallying
upon the man who has given victory to the An
movement in Pennsylvania. Ohio,
Indiana, Pennsylvania, lowa, Connecticut and
Maine have been taken by storm on the Ne
braska issue, and the Administration of Pierce,
Douglas it Co., is a wreck. But the movement
must not stop there. The Northern Inlay is
organized, and luau achieved its local victories.
The next and essential one, is the election of a
Northern President—it Northern man, North
ern in principles, on n Northern platform, elect
ed by Northern votes. All that is clear. The
man ? Cast about you over all the North, con

State, and eminently, above all others, Meek
is the man fiw the crisis. Ile is hindred by no
damaging antecedents, clear and free for the
race; and the Whigs and Free Democrats of
the North could do no wiser thing than choose
Pollock now for their candidate in 1836, to fill
the Presidential:chair.—Pittabury/ t Commercial
The Recent Llectifp in this State has sadly
contradicted some of the predictions of the
Democratic politicians in various parts of the
State. On the 7th of this month the Pennsyl•
"The work is going bravely on. From all
parts of the State our ntelligence is of the most
gratifying &matter. We have only space at
present tor a few extracts from the many letters
we are receiving.:'
Following the above appeared a letter dated
Pittsburg, Sept. 30th, saying, "I think Pollock's
majority will he but small in Allegheny." The
majority in that county is 5262, twice as large
as any ever given to a Whig candidate there be
fore. Another letter dated Wilkesbarre, Sept.
30th, appended to the above, said:
.'The active Democrats of Luzerne county
feel confident that Gov. Bigler's majority will
not be less than fifteen hundred in Lucerne
county, and we have good reasons to believe
that his majority will be very near two thou.
The official returns from Luzern° county
show a majority of 516 fur James Potluck, the
Whig candidate, over Governor Bigler. But
the richest of those letters is one dated Blooms
burg, Oct. 2d, in which the writer observes:
"Wright will have a majority in every coun
ty in this congressional district. To our can
didate for member, there is no opposition, and
we are all in high sprits."
Our readers already know the result in that
congressional district. The Hon. Henry
Puller, Whig, is elected by' an unprecedented
majority over this same Mr. Wright, and
zerno gave him near 2000 majority. Really
the "high spirits" which so badly damage the
judgement, as is evident in the above case, are
bad things to put one's trust in. The Penn
sylvanian should secure a new set of correspon
dents, for it is palpable that its present ones
are members of the "Know Nothing" party.—
It would he well worth while to publish the
whole hatch of which the above are given as

has elected to Congress any of the Nebraoka

I The result or the cream elections has lint an
astounding effect upon the. 11'aethitt4ton
We read with somewhat of astonishment midi
sentiments as are annexed, cut from an edito•
run! article in yesterday's Union elite 18th
In taking its position it should be carefully
borne in mind that the democratic party net assumes that the naturalization laws as they
now exist are perfect, nor that ftireigners have
not on some 0.1140113 subjected themselves to
just censures, nor that the Roman Catholic re
ligion is based upon the true Christian creed.
Citizenship is a boon granted to thweigners by
the liberality of our institutions, and this feet
cannot be t.;ocarefully weighed ana appreciated
by our forLign citizen. Theyshould constantly
remember that the high privileges conceded to
them have been granted upon the reasonable
expectation that they would surrender their
"distinctive native nationalitieS, and become
fused and assimilated to our 'naive citizens in
all their feeling sentiments,
and devotion to
our liberal institutions. It beconics them now,
in view of the lute significant expressions of
popular feelings, to consider well whether in
their past conduct they may not have given or
easion to much of the opposition which exists
against them. Native Americans are justly
proud of their high prerogatives and they are
naturally jealous of anything like foreign influ
ence upon their institutions. In these senti
ments luta feelings we participate to the fullest
extent, mei it is because we do that we se ear
nestly repel the imputation, that the Deinocrat
ic party has pursued, or will ever pursue, 'can
incendiary policy," in order to conciliate the
foreign vote. Naturalized citizens ought to see
in the immense increase of foreign immigra
tion within the last few years, legitimate rea
sons for an earnest investigation by native citi
zens of the probable influence of this increase
of ti reign population upon our institutions.—
This is a fair ana legitimate subject for dis
cussion ; and if It shall result in the conviction
that our naturalization laws are defective and'
require to be amended and reformed, the nat
uralizedsitizens ought neither to be surprised
nor to comptain.
The Union here concedes every point fur
Which Whigs and Americans have contended.
Let it be understood hereafter, that the question
whether our naturalization laws do or do not
require amendment is an open one, and that
the affirmative may be taken without subject•
ing those who tube it to the charge of being
deßroyers of the Constitution; enemies of civil
and religious liberty, and other aspersions of a

Shoplifting and Precocious Matrimony.
A singular instance of female depravity has
recently been brought to the notice of the po
lice. For the list 18 months ) a girl named Ma.
ry Ann Galwat has been in the employ of Mr.
Baum, in Eighth street, above Arch. of Mr.
John Kiehl, tit Arch street, between Seventh &
Eighth, and during the last four weeks, in the
dry goods establishment of Mr. George Fryer,
in chestnut street, below tenth. •
these eighteen months Mary Ana
seems to have had very costly clothing tor her
self, arid to have made numerous presents to
her dress-makers and acquaintances. Oil en
tering the store of Mr. Pryer, she presented his
child with a beautiful handkerchief; the value
of which is estituated at $45. Mr. Fryer nat.
rally inquired how site came by such a costly
article. She said that her mother l s ti a very
responsible and lucrative situation in the Gir
ard llouse in this city, and her aunt the same
kind of a situation in the St. Nickolas Hotel,
New York, and that one of them had gives her
the handkereldef. As she was a poor girl, she
said, shexlid not like to keep such a handker
chief. This explanatiint ton.; riuveived as satin
' factory at the time. But on last Saturday night,
Mary Aim was detected in the net of secreting
some line laces, .d the explanation of the af
fair only induced Mr. Fryer to have the young
lady taken into custody. Since that event,
startling developments have been made.. It
appears that during the lust eighteen months,
this young lady has been carrying ois shoplifting
by the wholesale, and with a success almost un
paralleleu by a female. She- has taken from
the various stores in which she has been eir
pluyed patterns, silk dresses, merinos, laces,
haildkerehiel, and ether guods, amounting in
value to hundreds of dollars. fler plan of ac
tion was to represent to her companion sales
women that the goods had been purchased, and
were to be sent for. The packages were laid
aside uctil boys called and transferred them
to the houses of acquaintances of the young la
dy, to whom she had made them presents.—
Goods, amounting in value to from $250 to
350, have been recovered by the police, and
they expect to recover $lOO worth more. She
-appears to have scattered her favors in every ,
direction, giving away that which did nut be
long to her with a most royal hand.
But this is not till of the story. Mary Ann •
exercised her Meinating powers over a mere Intl,
17 years or aye—is clerk in one of our well
known jewelry stores, secured his affections,
and lastly, they wercoapon false representatios
