Tire ELECTlON.—Contrary to all the expo.
tattoos of the knowing ones of the borough,
the clectionon Friday last resulted In a distinc
tive, decisive and emphatic victory of Fusion
over the American candidates. It may be con
sidered its an open rebuke to the sly endorse.
went of the nomination of an ultra pro-slavery
candidate fe. the Presidency. A. rebuke open,
manly, !‘.ineere, nod emphatic, to the Jour or
fire pettifoging blood-suckers, who presume to
direct the course of Americanism, and, who,
"considering themselves the heart and bead of
the 'American Party of Huntingdon County,
declare their ratification of an ill-timed nomi
nation. the voice of the free tchite men of this
county. The people of the county we know,
If they were properly acquainted with the Jes
uistic principles of some of their would-be lea
ders, would not recognize certain worn-out,
party hags in theFfuntingdon Council, N 0.67,
ns such. We despise party men who are such
not from principle,.but for selfglorification, if
we may be permitted the term. And who will
*deny the self evident fact, that scores of shabby
oflice.seekers in this county, have mounted
the hobby "Sam," for the sole purpose of riding
into fist ofliees and as natural consequent now
a.days, squandering the publiefunds.
All the American candidates with the excep
tion of 'School Directors, were defeated. No
subjoin a list of the successful candidates.
Judge.—Cap. jOllll Whittaker, old lino Whig.

Ltspector.—Graf. !killler,
Too MANY &Hoot IllooNs.—We saw a
score of juveniles of both sexes, coming from
School yesterday, and were astonished at the
number of boo!,. the little creatures curried.
One bright-eyed hot had thorn heaped up, like
Dominic Sampson when he revelled in the
brary of Col. Mannering. We believe that too
,cony books ire used ; they only muddle the
brain without profitable result, and make our
schools too much on the Mather order, us de

fragments whereof afterwards obtruded them•

untie a Romulus, or hie h&c hoc wastroy weight
or a verb always agreed with an ancient Brit
on, or three times four was Taurus, a bull, were
open questions with him."
/I{o I, TOP.—Anotber splendid now engine
designed fur the Huntingdon and Broad Top
Railroad, arrived here on Monday.—The
Broad Top have "struck" fur higher
wages. The price they demand per ton, is 60
cents, they have been receiving 40 cents, and
wo understand they have been offered 45.—The
town of Stenerstown, is decidedly a "fast instd
tio - islitin," where the b'hoys live. We are in
iiirmed that on Monday, ten barrels of the "rid
dle mo Dolce Junes," landed there, and that it
is no new occurrence.—The basin and weigh
lock are approaching completion, but we are
doubtful whether the latter will be finished by
the opening of navigation.—A 'turndable' bas
been erected at the 'cut' at Arenhates.—Cual
is now carried over the road and the demand
for it is very great. •
AfesW.—We have been requested to announce
that 3fr. 0. C. B. Carter will visit Huntingdon
during the 2nd and 3d weeks of April, with a
large and elegant assortment of Pianos, \felo•
deans, Sheet Music, ale., ke., from the eaten
,sive Warevuonis of J. E. Gould, 13.1 Chestnut
St., Phil. lie will exhibit his articles to visit
ors in the room formerly occupied as the Engi
emcees Office of the Broad Top MR, His in
struments being of the very. best quality, we
are confident will please the most fastidious.
Mr. John Plassyk, a Pianist of rare ability will
accompany him to treat the ''good people" of
Huntingdon to some excellent music. All are
respectfully invited to 40[11.0 and hoar and see
for themselves.
"GALTDETE EXULTEMVS !"—We have no ad
jectives—positive, comparative or superlative—
to express our satisfaction in announcing that
spring has come at last, and that those int.
mouse hillocks of mud and garbage which have
collected during the winter in our streets, block
ing up the way, and incommoding the public
generally, will he removed. We are living in
,tlAc joyful anticipation that if we have a here'
government, this matter will be attended to.
In vice or such bright prospects, we and as wo
began "Condole ISultemus .
lovely day was the 17th, and the people eeies of
rain were all unfulfilled. We venture the sug
gestion that as February had, this year, twenty
nine days, and St. Patrick did not recognize
the institution of leap year, it being a modern
invention, Sunday was the true St. Patrick's
slay, and consequently the snow that fell and
the raw, lowering sky that hung over us, were
the proper marks of his arrival. This being
,the case, the public will piirdon the failure to
,celebrate the 17th of March with a rain or a
snow storm.
REPUBLICAN MnaTlso.—A Bopubliaan mee
ting was held in this borough, on Monday eve•

POETRY.—WO publish a piece from a young
friend, outside. It is not of that morbid, sick•
ly t debilitated, %chinning, raving, melancholy.
mad, sentimental young lady Muse stuff. "Ab•
pins," and "stars," and "primal depths," and
"chaos voices," and "sperial melodies," togetly
er wills much shedding of tears, and wailing as
of souls iu purgatory, are the chief materials
of which the poetry of the last fifteen years
has been manufactured.

Huntingdon Circuit, will be held in the

month or so ago, was arrested on Saturday last,
and after a hearing before Esquire Snare, was
bound over in the suns °MOO° fur his appear•
ante at the April Court. He will then no doubt
find a pretty "rough road to travol."

Wallace, Maggie Willoughby,Aanie and Collie
