— IMPrOn Sunday night last, our town
was visited by a gang of burglars, who
entered the Jewelry store of Mr. Frisch,
and stole therefrom a lot of revolvers, pis
tols, pocket-books, jewelry, &c.
Mr. Riegger's Jewelry store was then
visited, and an unsuccessful attempt made
to enter it. The stores of Messrs. Fisher
& McMurtrie, and Mr. Roman, were also
tried, but no entrance effected.
On Monday night a young wan calling
himself William Williams, was arrested,
in whose possession was found several ar
ticles, which had been stolen from Mr.
Frisch's store. Our friend, Billy Lewis,
of the Globe, (whose office had also been
entered,) identified a powder•flaak, which
had been stolen from him.
The prisoner was commited to jail to
await his trial at the April Court.
ACCIDENT.-A young lad from Bed
ford, Pa.. met with an accident on last
Saturday morning, at Harrisburg. He
made an attempt to get on the cars when
they were in motion, and in doing so, his
foot slipped on the tee, the wheel of the
car struck him on the " heel, causing a
severe contusion The boy was brought
up in the cars to this place the same day,
and on Monday he took the Broad Top
train for home.
sr- Messrs. Fisher & McMurtrie are
putting the store room known as Saxton's
through a thorough course of repair, into
which they will remove t heir store on the
let of April.

four or five days will, we hope, explain
to X for the nonappearance of his com
munication; also for deferring the prom
ised exposure of the Poor House plunder
lln the Democratic Convention, at
Harrisburg, on Thursday, the committee
on resolutions reported a long and strong
series, going the whole figure for the Le
compten policy, and sustaining the Buch-
anan administration. Mr, Stokes offered
a substitute, taking the opposite tack, and
endorsing the policy of Governor Packer.
The report of the committee was adopted
by 111 ayes to 1 nay-20 declining to
vote, In the evening, the convention, on
the first ballot, nominated the Hon. W. A.
Porter, for the vacant seat on the bench of
the Supreme Court.
7'We have all the returns of the re
cent town elections in the State of New
York, and it will be seen that their general
aspect is overwhelmingly menacing to the
backers of the Lecouipton fraud. In the
Cities and larger villages where the influ
ence of the law•defying grogsaops is very
great, and is exerted for they. party which
they deem most likely to give them im•
punity, the question of the day is ignored,
and seeming verdicts obtained for the. Ad-
ministration ; but in the 'Rural Districts"
the People are nearly all on one side, and
that the side of Freedom.
'<Assts.—The Lawrence correspondent of
the New York Tribune writes that Dr. Brown,
'one of the commissioners appointed to take the
census of Marshal 'county, has made his re
turns. The whole county now has one hundred
and fifty voters. Yet in 1855, wEen the Mis.
sottrians took care of the elections, the county
returned 620 votes. At the last December
election, 272 votes wire professedly thrown for
the Leeorepton constitution. For the election
on January 4th the returns were adroitly held
back, and have not been counted in any of the
tables printed. The returns (as per candle
box) show nearly 900 votes. These are but tri•
fling frauds when compared with others which
the census returns are bringing to light. And
yet, says the Boston Post, "no matter what
frauds and outrages have been perpetrated, the
Republican party alone is the cause of the ex
clusion of Kansas from the Union ad a free
State I"
`'The Catacomba of Rome" on the firer
rage is to be ennti teed.

The telegraph a tow days since informed
us of the signal victory achieved by the Re
publicans at the municipal election in Chien
go. We have by mail the full account. The
majority of Haines, the Republican candi
date fur Mayor, is 1351, and the whole Re
publican general ticket is elected by a liko,
vote. To the board of Alderman there are
chosen seven Republicans and three Demo
Never, in the history of our country, has
the dominant party been put more severely
to the test than at present. The power of po
litical adhesion. usually understood to be po
litical affinity, has been resolved into its ele
mentary'components by the Kansas analysis.
It may be a satisfactiou to know the exact re
sult. In figures it would be represented as
five parts patriotism, five democracy, and
ninety love of office and of pelf. Probably
there are five voters in a hundred who have
really been persuaded by the terrible gascos
rule of the South and the seek submission of
too many at the North, that the Union is re.
ally in some danger from southern threats.
And there are five more who dread that, what
is greater in their eyes than country—party—
cannot hold together unless the southern al.
traists have everything their own way. The
difference between the last five and the nine
ty in a hundred is, that the five really think
that democracy is iu danger. The ninety care
nothing for abstractions; office, present or
I prospective—its benefits, direct 0: indirect,
for themselves or their friends (perhaps their
debtors,) are all that they can appreciate.
These considerations have most weight, of
course, with the gentlemen who represent
their party is that perpetual political CRUM,
Congress, or in the occasional gatherings of
the faithful to manufacture public opinion.
On such the executive thumbscrews can be
made to bear. The effort, just now, is to con.
trol the leaders, and through them the party.
The manoeuvres, a thought too open, which
are in plogress in Washington, are palpable.
But the success of executive dictation is not
commensurate with party impatience." The
influence of the White House is not of itself
sufficient. There is required an additional
pressure, and this is sought in the manufac
ture of public opinion to order, especially in
New York and Pennsylvania. From the first
named State the Tammany article has already
gone to Washington, and will there be wel
comed "neat as imported." Nothing could be
better than the "original package." Tam•
many, on the 4th, issued her decree, and under
the executive lash, wielded by Marshal Ityn•
dors, slaves, once fugitive from the party, were
triumphantly brought back. Of course reso
lutions were adopted. We have room only
for the last of the series, the climax, the brief
epitome of all the rest. And we have need
only for one tientence from that. All the rest
may be omiCted without injuring the sense,
impairing the logic, or weakening the force
of the series. Kansas ought to be admitted
into the Union with the Lecotnpton constitu
tion, because "James Buchanan, President of
the United States, recommends it I" If Mar
shal Itynders did not fire that gun when this
resolution was announced, it was because its
astounding impudence needed "no more re
There is the whole argument iu a sentence.

audacity be the character of courage, it is
brave. If servility be the spirit of democracy,
it is tlemocratie.
diatitimt of aeltiahm
be more miserabl:
truth leaks out unawares. Kansas must be
admitted because James Buchanan rreom•
mends it !
And what is there so conclusive in the rec•
ommentlation of the gentlemen who held nt
least one office too many fin his reputittioi. ?
The same pen that recommends Lecompton ,
holds Rynders on its pnirt. All the rest of the
political leeches of the party have the like de
pendence. Overthrow the slavery dynasty,.
and you not only damage the present ollice-hol
ders, but disinherit those who are looking to
the succession. The President recommends.
The king wishes. The autocrat decrees, end,
under penalty of lois of bread mid butter, of
perquisites arid privileges, the faithful must be
obedient. The same process is under way in
Pennsylvania that has succeeded in Tammany.
The democratic eativention in Harrisburg, dare
do no less than pass a series of resolutions pro•
per to be received at the White House, and
available to work upon the recreants in Con
gress. But we entreat them not to put so fine
a point on it as has been done in New York.
There is no need of language quite so plain.—
The people in the Keystone State, and our
members in Congress can draw an inference—
even the democrats. Let something be left to
the imagination, and something be sparett to
But there is this consolation, that the deci
sions of Tammany and tne resolutions of cau
cuses must go through the ordeal of popular
revision. There is no Kansas modus operandi
by which the people of the free States can be
forbidden either to speak dr to act. And if
party managers, by previous concert and cau
cus manceuvres, suppress the utterance of fres
s peech, and the expression of honest opinions
by delegates, the people who delegated them
will speak for themselves. Slavyry may be
forced temporarily into Kansas, but Kansas
tactics cannot he made successful in Pennsyl
vania. For the public officers, such tyrrasny
may answer, but not for the people. The elec
tion of 1860 will demonstrate positively, what
men, not blinded by self-interest and love of
office, and of patronage, might have guessed,
at least, without proof so disastrous to the ex
pectations which they are doomed to lose by
over greediness.
soar- The Republican Convention, which met
at Harrisburg on Monday, after maturely con.
sidering the subject relative to which it had eon
veiled, concluded to leave the calling of the
State Convention to nominate militates for Su.
premo Court and Canal Commissioner, to the
Union State Committee, of which Lemuel Todd
is Chairman. This conclusion, we think the
best that could possibly be arrived at.

say' There is an article selling throughout
the country that has attained the widest retch
rity ever known as a remedy for Liver Cote
plaints. We have reference to Dr. Sanford's
Invigorator, or liver Remedy, that has perforat
ed cures almost too great to believe, were it
not for the undoubted evidence that accompa
ny the testimonials. It is, in truth, the best
remedy known for Dyspepsk Jaundice, or a
general debility that so often baffles the skill of
our most eminent physicians.
Dr. Sanford hits been for a long time one of
the eminent physicians of New York, and it is
said, most of his cases were treated with the In
vigorator with such invariable success that lie

The Bowels and their Functions
As perfect health is the greatest IslessiiT
that we can enjoy, without which all other
blessings are of little consequence, we deem
it of great importance to point out the way
fur you to enjoy it. The bowels must be kept
in a state by which they are enabled to carry
off the useless matter; they are the main chan
nel which nature has arpointed to carry cv
erything that is unnecessary. And it is im•
possible to tell 'what a large amount of sick
ness has been caused by costspation, or cos
tiveness; in other words, by not keeping the
bowels regular; it is the main road to all di
seases; it is the cause of unnatural irritation
to the osseous, or lining membranes of the
bowels. Having lost their natural strength,
they cannot object to what is required of
them. Hence, the bowels become inflamed,
and unless you find a speedy relief, n thou
sand other complaints are ever ready to drag
you through a miserable and wretched life.
fo accomplish this there is no compound so
valuable as them Pills.. From two to five
Pills a day will increase etrqugth and appe•
tile, and cleanse the stomach and intestines
from whatever is injurious.
