CORONER: HENRY GRAFF lIIS, of Alexandria, IS...Hall's Journal of Health, published in the city of New York, at only p a year, is one of the most desirable . publications now extant. The August number is extremely in teresting. It is a work that no family:should be without. ley"' Professor Gardner, of Brown's Mil versity, one of the ablest and most popular lecturers of the day," entertained our citizens last week, with one of his incomparable lee.. tures, on all the leading topics of the day, interspersed with wit and humor, and winding up with the remarkable qualities of his "New England Soap." Prof. G., is a gentleman, in every sense of the term, a scholar, and a good fellow, generally. Wherever be goes, he drives away the " blue devils," purifies the commu nity and—makes lots of money. Such a man is deserving the great success wb ich has crowned his labors for the public good, and we take p.n... y Luny w WWI V letiLl• montais which he is receiving of the appreci ation of his worth as a citizen and—his soap as a great purifier. It has, in fact, become one of the " institutions" of the county; and people would almost as soon think of relaps ing into barbarism as to be without a supply of Prof. Gardner's world renowned New England Soap. We need not say, wherever he goes, may success attend him, for his preparation is bound to sell wherever it is tried. " None try it but to love it ; None name it but to praiser' RECENT ELECTIONS. The recent election in Kentucky has resul ted iu the success of the Democratic candi dates for Governor and Stateofficers, by from 7 to 10,000 majority, and a majority in the Legis lature, securing the election of Vice President Breckenridge or some other Democrat to the United States Senate, in the place of John J. Crittenden. In the Congressional delegation, the opposition elect three members, being a gain of one. In one district it is repotted that there is a tie vote. In Tennessee the Democratic candidate for Governor is re elected by about 6,000 majority and it is said the same patty have a majority in the Legislature. For Congress, the Oppo sition have gained four members. The delega tion stood 7 Democrats and 3 Opposition, now Opposition and 3 Democrats. In North Carolina the Democratic candi date for Governor is elected by a large major ity, but the Opposition have gained two mem• berg of Congress. Trues.—From the returns received it ap• pera that Gen. Sam. Houston, the independent candidate for Governor, is elected over the reg elar Democratic nominee by from 3,000 to 5,- 000 majority. From Oregon we have the gratifying rumor that the Republican candidate for Congress, Daniel Logan, has been elected by a majority of from 20 to 30. Should this prove to be cor• tact, Oregon is turning against the Democracy sooner than was expected when they rushed her into the Union last winter and kept Kansas out. These elections have placed tho organizat ion of the next House beyond the reach of the Democracy. . — . A .G 0 IT BLIND• TICKET. The ticket placed in nomination by the Lo. cofoco faction. of this county, is a motley con• cern ; consisting as it does, of expelled Know Nothings, members of the society familiarly known as "Molly Maguire," and one gentleman who prides in calling himself "an old Federal. ist," and having voted with James Buchanan when that virtuous man acknowledged the same creed, It is a ticket presented fur the blare. gee of the people unsupported by a resolution, and without the shadow of a platform to rest spun. We shall have more to say of th is mat• ter hereafter. FRANKLIN COUNTY. --The following is the People's ticket in Franklin;—Sheriff, Wm. McGrath; Treasurer, John Stouffer; District Attorney, Geo. Eyster ; Commissioner, J. S. Good ; Director of the Poor, David Spencer ; Auditor, John Downey; Senator, Col. A. K. McClure, subject to the decision of the Sena. tonal Conferees; Assembly, James R. Brewster. The People's County Ticket. It is with a pleasure, sincere and heartfelt, that we notice the action of the People's Coun ty Convention which met in this borough on Tuesday last. We can safely say we have nev er before attended a meeting of this kind, where a more harmonious and orderly feeling pre• vailed throughout the entire proceedings, and where the spirit of true patriotism was more sincerely felt. Every township and borough was represented, and the delegates were intel ligent, honest and reliable men. The tick et formed, which will be found under our masthead, is composed of the right kind of men, and we are truly gratified at the uuiver. sal favor which it meets—it could not be oth• R. B. WIGTON, Esq., of Huntingdon bor ough, has been re-nominated for Assembly, by acclamation. This is a compliment, handsome as it is deserving, and proves conclusively that our fellow citizens take pride in rewarding their faithful and honest public servants. Mr. Wig ton is a popular and able candidate, and his re nomination will be of immense importance to our Party, in maintaining and advancing the cause in the campaign in which we are engaged; and his election—of which there is not n shad ow of doubt—will be an honor and advantage to every citizen of the county. As a business man, Mr. W.has no superior and but few equals in the State, and the faithful and energetic manner in which he represented his constitu ents in the last Legislature, fully attests his ability to perform the responsible duties of his office with credit to himself and advantage to the people. As a great effort will be made by the leaders of the difierent factions of the Lo• cofoco party in the county to defeat Mr. W., and as they rely principally upon the " Railroad Question" and the reduction of the "Salary" of our Representatives to secure this object, it will be well for our friends to know our candi dates true position on these issues. In regard to the latter, he voted, last winter, against the resolution proposing to increase the salaries of Representatives, and stands pledged todiscoun tenance any scheme which has for its object the increase thereof. In relation to the repeal of the tonnage tax imposed upon the Pennsylva nia Railroad, Mr. Wigton has been instructed by the Convention which nominated him, on the course he is to pursue, should that question arise in the next Legislature It is embodied in the resolution Resolved, That we deem it the right of the people to instruct their representatives, and we hereby instruct our candidate for Assembly, to oppose the repeal of the three mill tonnage tax imposed upon the Pennsylvania Railroad Co. for freights, &c." This covers the whole ground, and places our candidate in the right position. We hope 011 r friends will not be deceived by the wily ar tifices of the Buchanan demagogues. The tri. umphant election of Mr. Wigton is beyond a peradventure. Gen. JOHN C. WATSON, of Brady town• ship, is the nominee of the Convention, for Sheriff. He is a gentleman of excellent char. actor fur hon esty and we hail hie selection with pleasure. No man in Huntingdon county is better qualified to fill this office; having been engaged nil his life in ta pursuit which requires the greatest amount of business talent, and possessing in an emi• nest degree all the qualifications necessary to tnake an obliging, competent and efficient officer. An henester man does cot breathe, and a more moral and upright citizen, the State cannot boast. With such a man, who would be silly enough to think an instant of defeat. HENRY T. WHITE, Esq., of Oneida town. altip, is the choice of the Convention fur Colin. ty Treasurer. This gentleman has for some three years been studying law in this borough, and at the last April term of C3urt, after a highly creditable examination was admitted to the Bar. He is a young man of commanding talents, and the high estimation in which he is held by the people of this place, is but the just tribute to a strictly upright and correct" waili and conversation." So far as capacity is con. corned, Mr. White's abilities are unquestiona ble, and we have no hesitancy in saying that he will discharge the duties of the office for which ho has been nominated, to the satisfaction of every one. He deserves and will receive a handsome majority. Major WILLIAM MOORE, of-West town. ship is nominated for Director of the Poor. A better selection could not possible have been made. The nominee is one of the most pops. tar and highly esteemed citizen of the "upper end " of the county; has always been an ac tive and energetic member of the party, and will be elected as sure as the 2d Tuesday of October comes round. MATTHE IV F. CAMPBELL, Esq., of Union township, is our candidate for County Commis sioner. It would be superfluous for us to say anything about 'Squire Campbell. He is well known all over the county, as a life-long, devo. ted, and ardent member of the party opposed to Locofocoisni; who has never deserted the ranks nor dodged a principle. He is an hon est man; a pure and upright citizen; with abilities of no ordinary kind ; and the interests of the county will be perfectly secure in his hands. JOHN F. RAMEY, of Huntingdon, is the choice for County Surveyor. He has filled this office for some time, to the entire satisfaction of the people; and we have no doubt will continue to please the public in the capacity of a public officer. He is bound to be elected. WM. L. CUNNINGHAM, of Clay town• ship, and ISRAEL GRAFFIUS, Esq., of Al exandria, were nominated for Auditors. Al. though this is an office which may appear of little importance, yet in reality it is the very one which requires the clearest head and pu rest heart to fill faithfully. These qualifica tions are possessed by our candidates. They aro both able calculators and strictly honest men. Such names area " tower of strength " to a ticket. JOHN W. MATTERN, Esq., of this bor ough, received the nomination for District At torney. We heartily endorse this choice, know. ing Mr. Mattern to be a competent and excel. lent candidate, fully filling the true standard— honesty and capacity. HENRY ORAFFILTS, of Alexandria, is the candidate for Coroner. Ho is an intelli gent and industrious mechanic ; has always been a zealous .d efficient party-man, and will fill the office with credit. Such, fellow•citizens of Huntingdon county, is the material we present for your suffrages. Although our description has been feeble and inadequate, it is a ticket unexceptionable ; there is not an incompetent or unworthy man upon it, and it stands upon a platform which every honest man must acknowledge to be the best for our county. We ask you now in view of the momentous interests at stake to rally, rally one and all to its support. Vote for the ticket, the whole ticket and nothing but the tick et, and let us roll up such a majority in October as sill cheer the hearts of our friends in other parts of the State, and nerve them up for the. great Presidential battle, under the banner of Protection and Freedom. Prepare for action. The Locofocos are splitand dismembered, and nothing is wanting but unity of action and A FULL OPPOSI TION VOTE to secure a glorious triumph in October. We call upon all our friends in the county to organize at once, and prepare to meet the enemy with a solid front. "If we all pull together, we can't be beat." Let us prepare, therefore, to "all pull together," and discountenance everything which would have 'a tendency t c militate against the cause, or de feat any of our candidates. The Locofocos, driven to desperation by their recent shameful defeats, will leave nothing undone which will tend to make our candidates unpopular in the minds of those who are silly enough to believe the stories they set afloat. But we hope they will not succeed. They have meu to deal with —men who "ask no favors and shrink from no responsibility." They rally, rally; and let us sing our good old songs as "Once more our glorious banner out • Upon the breeze we throw; Beneath its folds with song and shout, Let's charge upon the fuel" Pen, Paste and Scissors.

Some mutual friends interfered, and the combatants having been seperated, the matter dropped. Mr. Seabrook held at one time the position of Resident Engi. neer on the Central Railroad, bat has nut been in the employ of the Company for some time, and now, we believe, reeidee in Olsvelaod."

The steamships Vanderbilt, City of Balti more and Bavaria, from New York, had arrived The Emperor Napoleon has decided that the army and navy of France shall be placed on a pence footing with the least possible delay.— Phis fact has been officially announced in the Paris Moniker, and has had the effect of cans fog the Emperor to be regarded as sincere, and his intentions pacific. The Zurich Conference had not yet assem• bled. The time had not been fixed, but it was expected to meet in a few days. The arrival of the Sardinian plenipotentiary to the Zurich Conference, at Paris, is an nounced. The ativices from Italy are peaceful, , . The Noniteur's announcement of the inter, ded disarmament caused au advance of 1 per cent. on the Paris Bourse, but subsequently this was partially lost. Three per cent. Renl closed at 68f. 46c.

The Overland Mail, with Calcutta dates to June 17, Hong Kong to may 19, had reached Marseilles. The advices are not important. The English Cabinet has announced that the invitation to participate in the Con.ress of the great Powers will not be considered until after the results of the Zurich Conference has been ascertained. Lord John Russell and Lord Palmerston have made important speeches in Parliament on European affairs, in which they admitted that England had acted as the medium for con• veying terms from France to Austria, but with. out endorsing them. The subject of the.,national defences had been debated in Parliament, and the ministers exhibited the intention of the Governmeat to continue a vigorous prosecution of the work on the national defences. Count Coloredo, the Austrian Ambassador to represent Austria at the Zurich Conference, reached Marseilles on the 27th ult., on his route direct t o Zurich. The litdepeade.e Beige says that the kits- Irian Provincial Councils will all be convoked soon, and will have complete liberty in their deliberations, and may make known openly and sincerely to the Emperor the wishes of their populations. The first Austrian corps de armee for the present will be maintained in Italy on a war footing, 200,000 strong. The other corps de armee are to go to their former cantonments in Gallicia and Hungary, The official Piedanontese Gazelle says that the new Ministry will not produce any serious variation in the policy of Sardinia. There will be a grand illumination nt Milan on the arrival there of the King. The Sardinian Governors of Modena bane beer. withdrawn, and the government turned over to the municipalities. The result of the deliberations on the annex ation of Tuscany to Piedmonts had been made known. At 141 places, including Leghorn and Florence, there was 809 affirmative, and only 15 negative votes. Le Nord denies that any French troops are to remain it: the Duchies. A Milan letter says that the extreme party is commencing ivitation, and an insurrection in Venetia is possible. The Invalide Rasse says that Austria and Ern rmake w h ate vet.) forremips valsasg . , ask the concurrence of the rest of Europe. It is said that a deputation, with the Prince Napoleon at its head, will soon reach Vienna to take the remains of the Due de Iteichatadt to France. On the 28th, in the House of Commons,Lord C. Paget said that experiments were progree. sing to test the practicability of laying a sub marine telegraph to Gibralter, Lord John Russell made his statement rela tive to foreign affairs. Ho said he would have postponed it if there had been any prospect of being able to announce a definite settlement of the affairs of the Continent before the approach ing close of the session. He was glad to see, in the Paris Iron item) that the Emperor of France had determined to place the army and navy on a peace footing. After reviewing the grounds of peace as proclaimed by the two Emperors, he said as England did not interfere in the war, he did not think that* was for her to interfere in the pence. The-sacrifice of a province by Austria did not affect the state of affairs of Europe sufficiently to warrant the in terference of the neutral Powers. The most itnportant part of the treaty, however, related to the future of Italy. and the invitation of the Emperor Napoleon to England to enter the Congress was to consult on the actual state of affairs of Italy, quite irrespective of the terms of the treaty of Villafranca.

My wife, though, is somewhat induced to believe she may have had one only. Enclosed you will find five dot lars, for which you will please forward me two boxes. I suppose you can forward them by mail. Your compliance will oblige Yours respectfully, M. P. SLED..

Gen. Johnston bad received an iatianation of what was going ou, and fur more than a week had been having thu parties watched. Yesterday% man moiled Brewer, a Mormon, came down from the city to effect the first sales. He sold one check for tii:in7 to a man who had bees instructed to purchase them if offered for sale. A warrant loran arrest was immediately issued, the man was taken while in bed, and, on search being made, the plate for striking cheeks on Bt. Louie, together with a number of blank checks, were found. The fellow had in his possession several checks with the Quarter. masters name upon them. The signature had been so accurately traced that the Quartermas ter himself could not detect the counterfeit. it was one of the boldest, as well as ono of the most dangerous attempts at forgery ever per. petrated. A man named McKenzie, who keeps the Mormon cithing.office in the city, executed the engraving, and probable struck thints. A party has been sent up to arrest him. The intention was to send Brewer over to California with Win million dollars in checks, there to put them into circulation. If the scheme had not been nipped is the bud the public would probably have been swindled out of a million of dollars. Brewer is in the hands of the United States Marshal for the Terrritory, in heavy irons, and with a double guard over him all the time. There is no doubt about obtaining proof to convict him. RICHARD.
