Thia woe ihe final v,e on the question, and it

The following ilialogas it stid lo have taken
place between two contractors, not a hundrtd miles
from the Northumberland bridge. They are lnh
strong friends of Jesse Horton. for fhe best reason
in iho world, which ia, that Hort'n mitkes hia mo
tley in the same way they do, by gelling fat jobs -on
the atate worka :
Mr. JT. Do you know that Horton a prospects
ere getting worse and worae, every day! If the
eleciion had been a few weeks earlier, I think hi
chance would have been much better.
Mr. TV. Yea, I see it all plain enough. Horton
waa getting along pretty emoothly, aa long as the
people thought he waa a plain hard working farmes,
They have found out that it wa all a hunting, and
aa soon as lhat cursed new paper came out in Sun
bury they published it, th .t Horton a a conlrac
tor, and no firmer. Well, how undiT the sun

woman and chil'l he met with, how iia daddy, or
how bar husb.ind would go, or whether ha waa a
Van Buren or Harrison mm. The (act ia, the
people in ihe country don't know the man, and hia
appearance, you know, ia not calculated to make a
. very favorable impresioi..
Mr. W True. I heard but a few days ago, he
met a respectnble ol I gonilcman ruling on th luin-
pike, Horton, they Kay can e up lo him, and in a
rough way commenced sneering at, and abusing
Cbarlea W. Hegtn. The old gentleman aaid no
thing at the time, but tnld hia friends when he got
home, that he had seen Hort..n, and waa pretty
well satisfied what kind of a man he was,
Mr. J Well, the fart is, we must moke a bt-kl
push. We muet 6't as m my young men aa we

If they are hire only ton duya, you know eveiy vole

would not care much, who they would get in hia
place you know he was the chairman of the cum-
mitlee of interna) improvements last winter, and if
ha ia elected, yo-j know, tie will most likely be ap
pointed on thst committee again. Well ! vtu know,
that all the bills for the different improvements and
repairs are reported by hire now you will if col

Mr, If. Yea, I know very well. Many of hia
friends on the public worka were di-aatisftVd w.lh
him, and, if he ia elected again, thry will try to
keep him off that committee, but I am afraid there
will be too many like him in the no it legulature
. The truth is, the farmera wont vote for a contractor
if they know it. It does lo. k a little too bad to let
a man vote to piy himee'f. He ia alwaya suie to

money into hia own pocket, never will go down
