The Eleotion in lowa.
The returns of the recent election in this
State held on the 2nd inst., are coming in but
slowly, yet enough is at hand to show the com
plete success of the American and Whig tick
et. The Bth Judicial District has been carri
ed by the K. N's. by 1043 majority, electing
Wm. H. Tuthill, Esq., as Judge of the District
Court. The Davenport municipal election oc.
curred on the Bth, and Sam's ticket prevai!-'d
by a majority of 11 electing an American may
and securing a majority of aldermen of the
'right stripe. The county contains one•sixth of
the entire foreign population of the State, and
yet in the face of this Sam had a majority of
238. The majority fur the Prohibitory Liquor
law will be in the neighborhood of 10,000.
Dreadful Case of Hydrophobia in Cin-
The Cincinnati Gazette of Monday says :
On Thursday morning last Mrs. Rodgers,
veto resides in the 17th ward near the Catholic
Church, sent her son, Milton, a small boy, to
the bakery after a loaf of bread. On the way
the boy was bitten by a dog. Milton ran home
and dressed the wound he had received. On
Friday night, about 2 o'clock the another was
awakened by the boy tearing the bed clothes
and scratching his face. The mother endeav
iced to pacify him, but the boy groaned the
herder and became more and snore furious.—
A light was struck, when the mother discover
ed her boy frothing at the mouth. in these
spasms he died about 3 o'clock.—His leg, after
death, was found to be black, from his knee,
down, and very much swollen.
Eiplosion of a Powder Mill.
Os Wednesday morning last, about eight
O'clock, the chimney of the drying house at
tached to the extensive powder mills of Stone
back & Detweiler, in Haycock township, took
fire and burnt out furiously at the top. Only
two or three persons were in the mill at the
tithe. They. heard the roar of the fire and ran
out of the building, intending to procure buck
ets and ascend to the roof with water to pro.
vent the shingles from taking fire. After a mu
mules reflection they thought the undertaking
a hazardous ono, and very prudently abandon.
ed it. They made their escape as fast as pos.
sible. In a few moments .the root was on fire
in several places, and it is said to have been
about three minutes before a spark fell through
the shingles into the main part of the building,
where Mere were about four tons of powder,
which of course was instantlY ignited, and the
whole mill was blown sky high, a part of which
has not since bees seen. The explosion was
terrible, and shook the country for miles around.
The most fortunate circumstance connected
with the terrible catastrophe is that'no one was
killed.—Doyleslown, (Pa.) Democrat.
Is the Canal Board to be Abolished?
The session of the Legislature is drawing to
clove, and the bill that was reported for the
abolition of the Canal Board has passed nei
ther branch ; nor do we see that much is said
about it of lute. But we can assure the lte
presentatives of the People that this is a sub
ject in which they feel a deep interest. The
Canal Board has been for years the head of a
groat running sore of corruption—a monster
engine of fraud and wickeduess—a prolific
fountain of speculation that has sent its deiuor•
Wising influence to the remotest corners of the
Commonwealth. The State has been sunk
sleep awl almost inextricably in debt by it. It
has been driven to the verge of bankruptcy by
her corrupt officers; and is only saved front
disgraceful repudiation by heavy taxation.—
Fortytwo millions of debt stand as the mighty
monument of infamy reared by the Canal
Board, besides more than fort• millions more
that have been taken from the pockets of the
people and expended, independent of the re,
mine received from the Public Works. An in
satiable horde of plunderers have sapped the
very vitals of the Commonwealili, while they
have filled their own coffers. Is this state of
things to be continued? Will not the Legisla
ture put a stop to it, when now in its power?—

Sword for General . John E. Wool.
By a resolution of Congress approved Jana.
ary 24th, 1854, provision was made to prrs• .
snit to Major General John E Wool, a token
of the appreciation of his country of the servi
ces rendered by him in the memorable battle
of Buena Vista, in which he so sighally distin
guished himself. The work of manufacturing
the beautiful present was given to Mr. Simnel
Jackson, of No. 194 Baldinore street, and it is
now completed, being one of dm most beauti
ful things of the kind in the country The
blade is thirty-one and kquarter inches long,
of the finest cast steel, and emblazoned with
national devices. The hilt is of gold, and is
w. specimen of rare workmanship. The design
is an ear of corn, half concealed by the leaves
of the shuck Surrounding it. The upper part
io n spread eagle, on the breast of which is
shield bearing the words “Buena Vista, Feb.
22 and 21, 1847." the eyes of the eagle are
diamondr The cross of the Mt is the Mexican
coat of arms, the serpent anl , cactus, very
heavily wrougl t the ey.a of the serjent being
garnets the scabbard is of silver, thickly plaited
with gold, and ornaniented with solid gold
bands and rings. The end of the scabbard is
of solid gold and unique design. The sword
was made after a design from Lieutenont Ben
ton, and cost $1,500. It is a token of respect
worthy a gallant soldier, and should the cause
of his country demand it, there is no doubt but
its keen blade would do good service in the
protection of the honor of the notion, while
wielded by the hero of Buena Vista.
The Slavery Excitement in Missouri.

vine Luminary, which we publish in another
colonist, and the resolutions which were passed
at the same time by those citizens of Platte
county who participated therein, will certainly
be received with surprise not only by nine
tenths of the people of Missouri, but also by
the whole nation. It presents the fact that in
the western counties of this State, the agita
tion of the slavery question has been wrought
up to a fearful degree of intensity, and that it
is no longer permitted to the public press of
that section of the country to comment in any
other than an approving manner of the pro
ceedings of those nullifiers who set themselves
up as the peculiar guardians of our State in
stitutions. In addition to this fact, it will he

seek to preach the mercies of a Redeemer to
the people of Platte. This is certainly going
farther than we have ever yet known fanaticism
to reach in America, and we shall await haps

whole matter, that we may see whether the

which hold up vindictive threats over the-heads
of the editors of the Luminary if they shall

perhaps not so remarkable. Those who niake

Five to eight bottles will core the worst eve

A benefit is always experienced from the first
bottle, and a perfect cure is warranted when the
above quantity is taken.
Reader, I peddled over a thousand bottles of
this in the vicinity of Boston. I knew the effect
of it in every case. So sure as water will extin
guish tire, so sure will thin cure humor. I never
sold a bottle of it but that sold another; after a
trial it always speaks for itself. There are two
things about this herb that appear to me surpri
sing ; first that it grows in our wrung, in some
places quite plentiful. and yet its value has never
been known until I discovered it in 1846—second
that it should cure all kinds of humor.
In order to give some idea of the sudden rise
and great popularity of the discovery. I will
state that in April, 1853, I peddled it nod sold
about six bottles per day—in April, 1854, I sold
over one thousand per tiny of it.
Sonic of the wholesale Druggists who have
been in business twenty and thirty years, say
that nothing in the annals of patent medicines
was ever like it. ']'ore is a universal praise of
it from all quarters.
In any ow4PlSractice I always kept at strictly for
humors—but since its introduction as a general
family medicine, great and wonderful virtues
have been found in it that I never suspected.
Seventh cases of epileptic fits—a disease which
was always considered incurable, have been cu
red by n few bottles. 0. what a mercy if it will
prove effectual in sail cases of that dreadful mal
ady—there are but few who have more of it than

ses of the Liver, Si^k Headache, Dyspepsia,
Asthma, Fever and Ague, Pain in the Side, Dis
eases of the Spine, and partienlarly in diseases
of the Kidneys, &e., the discovery has done more
good than any medicine over known.
No change of diet ever necessary—eat the best
you can get and enough of it.
