A Long and Usefox IiIFE. A work
ing printer, named Thomas O'Flanagan,
has just died, in Dublin, at the age of
ninety, whose career was somewhat cu
rious and interesting. He was actively
employed as a compositor up to liter
ally Within a few hours of his death, on
the Wat ion newspaper, whose Irish "pa
triotic" opinions he shared. Seventy
years ago he was a journeyman printer
on the" Jress, the then organ of the
" United Irishman," and used to boast
that he had, with his own hands, " set
up" the manuscript of Lord Edward
Fitzo-erland. O'Flanagan at that time,
as a sworn brother, was one of the
armed bodyguard of the Geraldine, and
took part in an encounter with Major
Sirr and his force, in the neighborhood
of Thomas-streets, in DubliD. On a
subsequent occasion he saved Major
Sirr's life, when one disattecteel was
about to fire upon him from a window,
by striking the pistol out of the man's
hand. O'Flanagan spent a subsequent
nortion of his life in London, and filled
the responsible position as a chief prin
ter on the stall ot the Morning unron-
icle, in its best days. As ne Had
iiMn acquainted with Lord Edward
Fitzgerland, Nappa Tandy, Arthur
O'Conner, and Emmet during one Irish
crisis, so was he, at a later period, in
1848, familiarly known to Gaven Duffy,
Thomas Davis, and John Mitchel, as
one of the Nation staff. In 1848 he
was arrested, along with the others em
ployed on the paper when it was seized,
on the eve of the Ballingarry eneute
niter the suspension of the habeas cor-
jyus oe, but was detained in prison only
a lew days, tnere Deing no cnarge
against him or his fellow printers, of
complicity in the insurrection. When,
shortly afterwards, an entertainment
was given by his colleagues to celebrate
his fiftieth anniversary as a journeyman
printer, it was not supposed that he
would retain his phyisical and mental
powers, aud be able to earn his daily
bread, as he did, for close upon twenty
yeavs more. He was regarded with
marked affection by his employers and
daily associates, on account, of his ven
erable age, intelligence, and amiability,
and they buried him with every token
Cotton Manufactories in Alabama.
Wc are pleased to see that the attention of
our people is being earnestly directed toward
the erection of cotton factories. At Pratts
ville, 14 miles from Montgomery, upon Swift ,
Creek, the factory of Mr. Daniel Pratt is al
ready in operation, giving occupation to 850
laborers men, women and children. One
mile above Pratts rille, upon the same creek,
is the' aite of the new factory beinsr establish
ed by our fellow-citizens, Messrs. Honter &
Faber, the machinery . for which has jnst
been received from Liverpool. At Aataoija
ville, 25 miles from Montgomery, preparations
are being made to resume operations at the
factory upon Autauga Creek,, and ia few
weeks we may expect to hear the hum f the
spindles. These three factories of Aataoga,
upon creeks which supply an unfailing water
power, will give employment to not less-than .
1,200 men, women andchildren. A ccmriany
of capitalists is examining the Palls of" the

The Recent Elections.
-r Mnw the returns, as far as re-
ceived, of the elections held on Tuesday last.
The estimated majority in New York for
Gov. Fenton, Republican, over Mr. Hottman,
nnrmp.rhead. is 13.000. The whole vote of the
State is about 750,000. The vote of New
York, City is as follows: Fenton 33,462,
Hoffman '79,823. Fenton's majority in the
State in 1864, was 8,293.
New York City went very largely for Mr.
Hoffman, but there were heavy Republican
gains in the Western part of the State. Tbere
were Republican gams even in Auourn, Jir.
In the Congressional delegation there are
gains for both sides, but the result is the
same as in the last Congress.
The New York Times, whose Editor, Mr.
Raymond, figured so extensively in the Phil
adelphia Convention, thus announces tne re

seven thousand Democratic majority east in this

members. The Assembly will be Union, as

Mr. Raymond, who led many of his old
Whig brethren into the Democratic party,

A friend at our elbow suggests, that as the I
next Legislature will no doubt involve itself
in a heated discussion on the Howard amend
ment, it would be well if the Governor would
send in a potato to each House in the midst
of the discussion, as a means of allaving the
excitement. The potatoes might be sent in
on nicely prepared chips from the public
woodpile : and the Editors of the Sentinel
could stand, one at each door, to judge of the
structure and quality of the article. Such a
message, delivered at the proper time and
with becoming seriousness, would operate
like a charm on the two Houses.
