afiriThe New York Polies Troubles seem
to be approaching a termination. Not only
has the Coast of Appeals decided the law con.
stitutional, but Mayor Wood has succumbed,
and will disband his rebellious forces. We had
expected a different course of procedure, from
the elaborate preparations he bad made. But
probably the high character of the Court of
Appeals deterred him. Of the eight judges
composing that tribunal, only one belonged to
the Republican patty, one was an "Ameri.
can," and six were Democrats of the same
faith as the recusant Mayor. tinder these
circumstances, he no doubt had looked for a
different result, as all the members of his own
party in New York city had supported his out
tageons measures. The Court did not content
itself with merely enunciating its opinion on
the abstract question of constitutionality, but
it gave the Mayor explicitely to understand
that a constitutional law must be respected and
enforced, and that the only legal path open to
those opposed to it is to seek a remedy at the

A Serious Mistake.
A mistake of a singular character, and which
has been a serious one to at least two of our
citizens, occurred at the Cambria Iron Works
on Saturday morning last. The houses built
by the Company for the residences of employees
are all upon the same plan, and so uniform in
construction and appearance that it is with dlf
inky a mar can tell his own door. One of
the employees, on Friday night, mistaking the
door, entered another man's domicil, and went
to bed with his wife. The bona lids husband
of the woman, who was on night duty at the
Rolling Mill, at the end of his "trick'' upon go
ing home was the first to discover the mistake.
Somebody sae in bed with 'Dinah' The in
nocent and unfortunate pair were fast asleep,
and the husband not knowing that it was all a
mistake, but supposing that it was a willful do.
Sling of his bed, withdrew for a few minutes
and returned with some of his neighbors to wit.
nese the fact that somebody was in bed with
bits wife. There is no doubt in our mind about
it being a mistake or a joke, but the husband
not being • man to appreciate a joke of the
kind, forthwith had them arrested on the charge
of adultery, and without ceremony or compas
'ion the unfortunate victims of this accident
were taken to Ebensburg, where they are now
in durance vile. Mistakes of this kind, it is
laid, occur frequently at these Works, and we
wonder they don't still more frequently occur;
for the helms being built in blocks, and all be•
in gof the same color, and same plan and sn.
_it is almost impossible to keep from going
to bed to somebody's wife. We should not re•
aide in that village at the Mill for any consider.
Sties, for our organ of locality is not very full,
and we fear we would often get into the "wrong
beg." Wood, Morrell & Co. should be respon•

there is auch a similarity in their buildings that

We have announced heretofore the stile of

In connection with this subject, the following
section may be of interest to some parties, and
we append it;

have given notice to the Governorof their rea
diness to take possession of said works, he
shall cause notice thereof to be given to all
superintendents, toll collectors, officers and
agents of the Commonwealth employedon or
about said railroads aid canals, who shall met
tiuue nevertheless to discharge the duties of
their said offices or employments (at the ex
pense of the purchasers of said main line) un

bonds of said officers or agents shell enure to
the use of said purchasers, as to all moneys re
ceived, or actions done by them on account of
said works subsequent to the time when said
purchasers shall take possession as aforesaid.
The Western Division.
R. M. Riddle, Esq., editor of the Pittsburg
Commercial Journal, is now in Philadelphia
and writing letters home. We find the follow.
iug in one of his letters on the subject of the'
sale of the Main Line, .and keeping the Wes.
tern Divison of the line open:
Mr, Thompson stated that he would cheer.
fully communicate to me his views, and he
would give them fully, with no other reserve
than that imposed by the fact, to which he
carefully directed my attention, that these
are but his individual views and opinions
and cannot be authoritative until they have
been approved by the Stockholders and Bean/.
Mr. Thompson avows himself favorable, in the
first instance, to offering the whole Main Line
of the Canal, Eastern and Western Divisions,
and the Portage Railroad, for sale together, to
the highest bidder, retaining only the Colum
bia Railroad, to the end that tho Pennsylva
nia Railroad Company shall own nothing but a
continuous line of Railroad from Pittsburg to
Philadelphia, and disarm the baseless clamor
about monopoly of both lines, and oppres.
sion of canal freights. If the danal and Por
tage Railroad cannot be sold together to a res.
ponsible company or associations then it shall
be sold in sections. Ile suggests, as advisa
ble, that the canal may be offered to the
Counties which they traverse, in default of
In relation to the Western Division, he says
an effort will be made to sell it i in default
of sale or lease, he would offer it to the coon•
ties through which it passes, conditioned that
they should keep it in navigable order. In
any event, and under the most adverse cir.
cumstances, he holds that the water power on
the Northern Division, from Blairville to Pitts.
bur g , will suffice to keep that much of the
North Division open forever. He bee no doubt (
that the Canal from iNairevillo to Pittsburg
will be kept up and open forever.
From Minnesota, we have letters and papers

there are doubts hanging over the returns in
several instances. Add to this, Hennepin

trict and four more as a Representative Die.
trict. The Republicans printed their ballots
correctly and so voted them ; the Democrats,
by a mistake, vote for six Delegates without
distinguishing between Council and Represen
tative Districts. The Register of the County
(the Rev. C. G. Ames,) after taking counsel
threw out the Democratic ballots, as not cast
according to law, whereby all six Republicans
are of course elected; whereas, if the votes
hart all been counted, four of the Democrats
arid but two Republicans would have been
chosen. Gov. Medury thereupon removed Mr.
Ames from office, but the Board of County
Commissioners immediately reinstated him.
Mr. Ames did his duty according to law
and is unjustly assailed therefor. He had no
right to go behind the returns, not to presume
an intent on part of the voters which their bal
lots did not specify. But the Convention is
under no such restraint; and, if the facts shall
appear to be as above stated, we trust that the
four Democrats will be admitted to their seats
so soon as possible after those facts shall have
been established. It is of far less consequence
that the Republicans should have a majority
in the Convention than that they should refuse
to take advantage of a mere blunder on the
part of their adversaries.
Statistics of Boston.
From Adam's Directory, we learn that there
are in the city of Boston 945 streets, courts,
places, etc; 148 warves ; 36 halls; 21 pub.
tic buildings; 15 blocks of buildings, having
distinctive names; 13 libraries—two free; 38 1
banks of discount ; saving banks ;38 insu

142 newspapers published ; 102 churches , 120
male physicians-23 female ; 168 clergyman of
all denominations; 468 counsellors at law.—
The preachers of 'peace and good will to men'
bear but a small proportion to the profession
which prospers most when a reverse state of
feeling prevails in the community.
The Oswego Times of Thursday says :
"Pearls of various sizes continue to be found
in the streams near this city. The most beau.

alone, so lontas he does so, be admitted to be
sincere and honest? Hoot, what construction
can any candid man put upon the course of
those who sustain such a ticket? Assuredly
no other than that it is their intention to elect,
if possible, the Locofoco candidates.
But, says some straightlaced Know Nothing
American lshmaelite, let Mr. Wilmot with.
draw, and let his friends accept Mr. Haulm
karst in his stead I There is a species of mo
desty which a distinguished barrister of our
city calls "cool," and the coolness of which is
amusing, if not always refreshing—but the
modesty which suggests the retirement of Mr.
Wilmot iu favor of Mr. Ilazlehurst is so cold,
that it freezes right fast to us, and we can 1
scarcely resist the temptation which prompts
us to demand that Mr. 11. retire from the field
which his interference only embarrasses, but
we forbear and content ourselves with saying
that we doubt his altering the result very ma.
terially, for it seems reduced to a demonstra
tion that either Mr. Wiltnot or Mr. Packer will
have a clear majority of the whole vote of the
State, and that Mr. ldazlehurst will be Mary.

To show the absurdity and arrogance of this
demand of the fanatical and bigotted Phari
sees of the Straigbtout wing of Americanism,
we need only refer to the Presidential vote last
Buchan. rece i ved, 230 500 votes
We need nut say how reasonable it will be
regarded to be by all plain practical men that
203,338 voters should yield the right of nomina•
Ling candidates for the anti.Locofoco party of I
the State to 26,336, of whom scarce one in ten
now sympathize with the movement that origbl
sated the factious ticket headed Haslehutst.
It is scarcely to be presumed that a few noisy
caballers, who live by speculating on outside
chances and oblique perquisites, will be able
to seduce many votes from the path of sound,
policy, however they may exert themselves.
Hypocrisy and deceit are always sure of their
reward. All 'tined minded and high-minded
electors will vote either for Wilmot or Packer.
All Americana who do not wish to be regarded
I either with pity or contempt next fall, will ei
ther honestly make good their boasted antipa

mot, or claim their full share of their credit of
defeating him by a bold and acknowledged
support of Mr. Packer. Nothing is more tbs.
graceful than carrying water on both shoulders,
except,a cowardly refusal, when duty calls, to
carry it on either.. We are opposed to all
tritium quids—they are generally neutral sub
stances, hose precipitates, impossible to digest,
and are se incubus upon the gastrio organs of
the body corporate. No vote can be given
honestly next fall exeept it goes for Wilmot or
for Packer, and no intelligent voter will hon.

W. F. M. Amy, one of the leaders of the free
State party in Kansas, has arrived in Chicago
direct from the Territory, and infixms the etli•
for of the Chicago Tribune that, under the au•
thurization of the Topeka Legislature, the
marshals and deputies appointed by Governor
Robinson are engaged in taking a careful een•
sun of the population, setting forth the number
of women and children, and the colored popula•
lion, free and slave, setting forth the number
of voters resident for six months, and the whole
number or voters.
In the county of Anderson, where Mr. Amy
resides, there are fully 600 voters. The free
State men are united, harmonious and sam
gu;ne of success on the first opportunity they
con obtain of showing their strength. They
refrained everywhere from voting at the recent
election, and hence there were only 1600 votes
polled out duo adult male population number

nor Walker's party is is a minority among
those participating in the late election, and
that the majority is opposed tosubmitting the
constitution to a general vote for rittification.

The free State men are bound to vote at all
hazards. The most remarkable part of Mr.
Amy's narrative is that emigration still coati.
nues to flow into the Territory in an unabated
'stream, and that speculation and enterprise are
making long and rapid strides. Crops look
well, and there is a flattering prospect of rai•
sing a supply of breadstuffs.
The Richmond, Va., Enquirer, in the course
of an article on the subject of Kansas, says
"there is, ewe think, little doubt that the pro.
slavery settlers have abandoned the idea of
success." It goes on to argue that the admis.
sion of Kansas as a free State is an inevitable
result, and one with which the South ought to
be satisfied." This contrasts strangely with
the following extracts from the Albany Argus,
a paper issued iu the free State of New York :
"We understand the [Karnes' census act to
have been au equitable one, and honestly ad.
ministered. ♦ • * • •
"If the new constitution is submitted to the
body of electors thus enrolled, it will be all we
ask. It is neither practicable nor proper to
make a new census."
The National Intelligencer, in the course of
an able article, cities the opposition to the re.
ference of the Kansas Constitution to a full and
fair popular vote, as an evidence that the squat.
ter sovereignty inventors are sink of it. For
such opposition can only have its origin in a
belief that the majority of the people of Kan.
sea are opposed to Slavery. And, it this be
the case, what can be gained by forcing upon
them a State government which they can repu.
distil weary elm after its installation?

Tue WAY THEY GET RICH our WEST.—The
Newburypurt Herald relates the experience of
a friend, just returned from the West. He
Here is the whole story. We complain of
hard times, and go West to better our condi..
lion. If we would live in a log or mud house
with one room and no floor, sleep on straw, go
barefooted, wear the cheapest and coarsest clo•
thing, and deprive ourselves of all the comforts
of life, anybody might squat upon two acres of
c.rninon pasture, and with the same labor, be
as rich in seven years as upon any half section
of land in Kansas: and if there were hundreds
thus squatting, they could get up a land fever
speculate in lots, and have the prices go up as
they do in the West.
What people save in the new States they
crush out of themselves, and that they do any
•whm e. All the advantage they have is,'the
privilege of living as mean, and being as mean,
and having their children as mean, as human
nature will bear, with nobody to tind fault
with it ; while here, living in the same manner
they would separate trout the masses as much
as the ginsies do. If any of .r peoplc_wish to
learn practically shunt let mem
take a view of the basket .makers as the drive
into market from New Hampshire, and then
go home and live with them in the back part
of Barrington, and they will be saved the trou•
ble of going to Kansas.
The Great Ohio Defalcation.—The BUM of
money stolen from the State Treasury of Ohio
by John G. Breslin, lute democratic Treasurer,
amounts to nearly one million of dollars l At
first rumor repirted it at a quarter, then half a
million ' next at three quarters , and now, when
the whole truth is known, it appears that this
democratic olliee•holdet has actually purloined
of the people's money, the enormous amount
of `96 ,655,73, without reckoning interest.
Hutt m's SsasArAnit.l.A.—The wonderful
properties of this medicine, its specific action
in cleaning and thoroughly removing from the

is attended with marked benefit, and will be
found the best restorative for that depressed
