The "Register" says it has frequent rogatories
as to what means are to be employed
in the selection of whig candidates this fall.
Exactly so! , The masses of the People in the
county, those at least, who have always been
whigs, wsnt to know what is the reason there
are no aspiran's on the carpet for the notion
of the Fall dabeel It 'rytv$r was. so before,
what the deuca oaa the fcaUetbe? ' An there
no fotriatt in the whig ranks anxious to serve
the dear peaplet A. wondrous change .has
come over the' creams 'of some of our whig
friends, anmrentlv. at least: bat, the whole
turn and suoslance of 'the ma Her may be sla
ted -in few, word. .The wire-workers
and clique o( Eaton, who manage the Editor
and "Register" concern, have the whole ar
-rsngement "cut and dry," ready to be sprung
upon the people at a day too late for any rem
edy except open rehellon, and they think the
whigrof the county will endure a great deal
before such a condition of aflfaira will be re
sorted to, but they must remember thst there
is a point at which "Forbearance ceases to be
.a virtue," and thtt point hsi been arrived at
by those designing, hypooritical.office-seeking,
political tricksters, who are now endeavoring
to sell the whig party of Preble county to the
Free Soilers. When such scliemes of villainy
are being consummated, and no warning voice
is raised by the Editor if tbe "Register," it is
time tbe people were becoming alarmed, and
manifested some anxiety as to-what was going
on in their own ranks among the officer, as
well as what was doing in the. enemy's camp!
The sentinels placed upon the watch towers
of whiggery in Preble county hsve proven re'
eresnt to the trust reposed in them, anu in
stead of Crying 7eaon, are endeavoring to
lull the suspicions aroused, tiutil the deed
consummated. . But tbe cloven foot has beeu
seen by the people, and. already tha voice
or popular opinion is thundering at the cita
del, and asking of the commander what
means this parleying with the enemy, and all
the suspicious looking circumstances attend
ing every movement? What has been the an
awer to all these interrogatories? Why, they
. koto not yet determined upon a count of ac
tion! This is not the precise language, but
is tha sum and substance. "Tell it not in
Oath, publish it not in the streets of Aske
Jon," that, in Preble county, upon tbe eve
an election, tin hig$ in (he county are tri'M
out a ticket," and not knowing what to do, ac
cording to tbe confessions of their own organ,
which by its aid and comfort to political ras
cality, has assisted materially in producing
the present condition of affairs. Such an or
gan would buttt any party organization. When
men will turn traitor to their party, and for
the purpose of gain or reward, sell their prin
ciples to clique of corrupt office-stekln
wire-workers, nothing bul ruin and destruc
tiorl can poisibly result from such course,
. aud we are sot surprised thst, with a whig
Proprietor, a Free Soil Editor and a clique
"Board of Control," the organ is at a loss what
course to advise, the whig of the county

The trip to Carlisle was aa p'easont as
could be desired over en excellent thorough
fare, namely, the Little Miami Railroad and
its connections. To speak of the superior or
der in which this road is kept by the ability
of its superintendent and efficiency of its
Board of Directors, Is only to re-iterate what
is common intelligence throughout the coun
try. To praise the gentlemanly Conductors,
Osgood, Cushino and their compeers, is only
to repest the verdict of thousanda who daily
whirl over its iron track, snd award to these
gentlemen Hut which they richly merit, by
their kind attention and accommodating dis
position. The Ohio and Pennsylvania Rail-
rosd is remarkable for its smoothness, consid
ering the short time it has been in use; tjie
time made upon it ii astonishing the Express
Trains malting often, sixty milei sn hour.
Conductors Williams snd Ltivrrr hsve no su
periors,, and secure the esteem of sll who
lake passage upon their irsins, becsuse of
their mildness, kind cess and disposition to
accommodate. Sometimes Conductors forget
that Passengers have rights as well as Railroad
Companies, and because of their authority,
are disposed to be overbearing. We would
rather praise at all times, it is more in accord
ance with our feelings, but when men in pub
lic stations throw themselves open to censure,
we fear not to speak out the truth, "though
the hesvens should fall;", aud in this connec
tion, would just remark, that, although tf'e
conduct of Conduclor Sbtii, on th Ohio aud
Pennsylvania Railroad, in compelling passen
gers to crowd into a single car, two to every
seat, upon a melting night, with at least two
empty cars in tbe truin, may be in accordance
with his ideas of accommodation; yet, ltdoea

Perhaps some of our readers might des re
little description of this Carlisle, the place
where hrst we gazed in rapture upon the sun
light of Heaven. If so, we will endeavor
briefly gratify that desire. The town is situ
ated about the centre of the Cumberland Val
ley, one of the richest, most romantic and
beautiful spols in Pennsylvsnia. Tnis valley
is about fifty miles in length, east to west,
and fourteen in width, north to south. Bound
ed on the north by the North Mountain,
the south by the South Mountain and Yellow
Breeckei creek. Carlisle contains populs
tion of about six thousand, and is one of the
most beautiful and healthy inbnd towns

Public Squares or Parks, on the north west
one is the First Presbyterisn Church, on
opposite, or norlb east, the Episcopal Church,
on the south east is the Msrket House, built
in the form of an' L. extending around two
sides of the square, on the uth west square
stands the Court House, a beautiful brisk edi
fice, upon which is a Town Clock. These
squares are surrounded with Linden trees, and
are a great place of resort in tbe summer even
ings. Once a week, the Brass Rand attached
to the U. S. Troops at the Barracks, come

tional sirs, which serves to keep up their pa
triotism and revive the tires of seventy-six,
and keep alive their love and devotion to

Boroueh. The streets on both tides,
mostly shaded by ornamental trees. There
are many fine residences in the town, and
great deal of wealth and luxury. About
miles nor fit east of the town sre the Carlisle
Sulphur Springs, a place of resoft during
summer months for gentlemen and their fam
ilies who reside in cities. When we were
kome, there were st these springs, near three
hundred guett from a distance, besides many

commenced in 1813 or 1814, by William &.
Jams Undcrwoou, and has- been ever -since
faithful snd able exponent of Democratic
measures and a supporter of the true interests
and principle or Republicanism. There are
setsial well kept Hotels in the tuwn, the best,
of which, we believe, is under the propries
torship of Parsons, a prince of a landlord.
There are a large number of store of variou
kinds, and to witnesa the display of goods
from doors, show-windows, ift., one would
imagine himself in a place of immense busi
ness. There are three Jewelry establishments,
tbe most fashionable and extensive of which
is kepi by our old friend Conltn, who gener

of goods from which to accommodate custom

Hotels have Ice Houses, which are generally
filled from the Canondoguinet creek about
one mile north of town, or the Lelort Spring

ITOur Free Soil friends hsve not much con
fidence in the clique and the hypocritical cant
of the "Register" and its Abolitioniit r Editor.
They are beginning to discover thai the rank
and file of the party are not disposed1 to en
dorse the acts of the clique, and fear fills them
with dire fotebodings thst, if they do perfect
an arrangement, defeat will overtake the whole
concern. The clique and their aiders and abet
tors are considerably exercised in the same way
about these days, particularly when contem
plating the expression of public opinion now
beginning to develop itself. If thev dare,
them carry out the schemes of rascality they
have had in contemplation for months past,
and their political destruction will be 'so ef-i
feclual that, no resurrection morn will ever
dawn upon Ihem. The time for successful
scemes of trickery has passed by, at least
this county the people can neither be hood
winked nor whipped in, which the clique
learned by bitter experience, and Ihe lesson
will be repeated, if they persist in endesvor

pies and supporting the fanaticism pf

Some time since, a C' arse practical joke was
played upon a young gentleman, named Jestup

Jessup, and he being quilt a ladies' mn res
ponded in amorous, epistles. The correspon
dence was continued for several weeks, and
at last, v meeting was agreed upon. The lady
was to pass Alf Burnett's saloon in a carriage,
and at a signal, Jessup was to. hand her out.
Of course, be was all impatience for the arri
val of the happy moment. A number of thoe
in the secret were present, end when to the
horror of Jessup, the lady i roved to be very
sooty wench; they were overjoyed at hia shame
and the result of their trick.': Not satisfied
with this, Smith bad the letters published with
such comment, and alight iltertion f nameaswi
