CTh Sentinel, has much the largest cir
culation of any paper published in this county
and at an advertising sheet offers superior
inducements to merchants and business men
generally. Those desirous of making use of
this medium for extending their business can
2a to by either sending their notices direct, or
through the following agents:

Mr. J. Moore has just received a fine assort,
meet. of new goods, suitable for the season,
wh'.ch he will dispose of on the most reason a.
Lie teirns. It will also be seen, that he is de
sirous of selling or renting his well known
Tan yard adjoining this borough, and a Farm
in Susquehanna township. Those indebted to
the late firm of Davis &. Cell had better look
out, as there appears to be trouble a-head; and
Mrs. Webster is desirous of having the estate
of her late husband settled up.
"Palmer's Register and Spirit of the Press,"
is the title of a new paper published in Phila

We are gratified to learn that this gentleman
lias been elected to the Legislature from Arra-
strong county. The contest was a warm one,
'"there being two opposition candidates in the

Returns of this county. We were very careful
inrnaking out the table, and therefore think it
can be relied on as correct.
U" Business is again quite lively on our pub
lie improvements since the lata heavy rains:
Transporters arc now very ousy in passing
goods over the lines, and they appear to have
more than they can do. By tho way, speaking
of our public improvements, we may be per
imttcd to remark that the experienco of last
ummer ought to be sufficient to satisfy any
candid mind of the necessity and importance

enon a possible. The want of water on the
western division oi the Pennsylvania Canal
was Buch, during the past summer, that little

two months, by which the State has lost almost
as much in tolls alone as would have comple.
trd the Rcfccrvoir, without liking into consid.
on it, who were thrown out ot
The Reservoir would have supplied the canal
with suflicieat water during the dry season ,
and thus prevented any suspension in the busi
ness of transportation- We sincerely hope our
next Legislature will soe the necessity of ma.
king an appropriation for the completion of
this Reservoir. It would be much better to re.
trench in other matters, than to neclect that
! which the experience of the past season has
demonstrated to be of the highest importance
to tho interests of the JState
Oeluw we give thfeturns of the late elec
tion as far as heard from. Although the table
is nolfull, and in many places may not be cor.
reel, yet we think it will no t vary much from
the official vole. We think Gamble's majority
will be near fifteen thousand. The democracy
of the State have come up to the work nob ly,
and Pennsylvania is redeemed. We have a
majority of one in the Senate, and from fifteen
to twenty in the Ilause. What an awful do -
struction of Coons!
O" At tho late election we gained thirteen
members of the Legislature as far as heard
from. One in Allegheny, one in Cambria, one
in Cumberland, one in Mercer, one in Schuyl
kill and eight in Philadelphia county. The
whigs gained four members ore in Columbia
two in Bucks and one in Butler. In our next

Some kind friend in California has sent us a
copy of the "Alta C alifornia," published in San
Francisco of August the 16th. To judge from
the tone of the paper, tho advertisements, &c-
business was very lively, and tho citizens were
making rapid progress in the establishment of
law and order.
The Altd California is a sheet not so larg
as the Sentinel, is published weekly at tho rate
of twelve dollars per annum. Advertisements
often lines or less are inserted at the rate o
of four dollars for the first insertion, and tw
dollars for every subsequent one. Official no
tices are six dollars tor the first insertion and
three dollars for every subseqeent one. Whew
wouldn't we like to publish a paper on sue
terms! This is a fair sample, however, of how
prices rate in California.
The number of the paper before us, contain
the address of Col. John W. Geary. Chief A
calde to the Ayuntam icnto or city council o
San r rancisco. From the following para
graphs, which we extract from it, it would
seem the city is very destitute of the means o
protecting property or preserving order.
As your presiding officer I deem it my
duty to call your attention to the situation
of the city, anil to ask your co-operation
in making it, in point of order and security
what it must shortly be in wealth and im-
portance, the first etty and great commer-
cial and monicd emporium of the Pacific
To effect this, gentlemen, it will require of

as great diligence and a liberal supply of
