The New Portage Railroad.
The prospects are that nbout the 1st of Decem
ber the above road will be so far completed as
to avoid Plane No. 2 connecting with the pre
eent Portage at the foot of Plane No. 3. And,
about the 1st of January, or perhaps sooner, a
connection will be made at the foot of Plane
No. 4, (which will be a permanent one for some
time,) thereby avoiding Planes 2 and S. Up to
that point the road is nearly completed, and the
Engineers and contractors expect by the above
time to have it in readiness for the cars,
r The balance of the road across the mountain
cannot be too speedily finished. There are
several very heavy sections, for the completion
of which, time and immense labor are necessa
rv. They should, however, be pushed forward
and worked continually. The present road is
inadequate for more business, and is entirely
behind the spirit and progress of the age.
True, the Portage Railroad has performed won
ders, and, we believe, more business has been
transacted upon it, more freight passed over it,
than upon any other road in the country. The
rails were good, in fact, the very best, but their
occupations gone" and they are nearly worn
out. The new road must be made as soon as
possible, else the old road will have to be re
laid with iron, and other improvements be made
upon it. The Central railroad will be comple
ted across the mountain in twelve or fifteen
months. The interests of the State, and of the
Great Best, demand that the canals and rail
roads should be placed in a proper position to
compete with the central company. This can
only be efi'ected by the speedy completion of the
New Portage, and for the accomplishment of
this object one of the first duties of the nex
Legislature tdiould be, to afford means to the
contractors, so as to enable them to finish their
contract j at an early day, and have a road made
which would avoid all the vexations and dangers
incident to the passage of merchandise over the
present corduroy road.
Democratic Celebration at Jefferson.
The Democrats of Summerhill township, eel"
ebratcd the late victory, on Monday evening, at
the house of James D. Hamilton, Esq., in Jef
ferson. At nine o'clock in the evening, the per
60iis assembled partook of a most excellent sup
per, and afterwards marched in procession
through the town accompanied by a band of
music, while the "Little Gun" bellowed forth
thirty one times in honor of our victorious can
didates Pierce and King.
The evening passed off in a pleasant and joy
ous manner. The democrats of Summcrhilj
manfully performed their whole duty in the late
contest and gave an increased majority for Pierce
over the October election of ! "Will the ed
itor of the Holiidaysburg Whij please inform us
if he has heard any thing concerning those 29
democrats in Summerhill who, as stated by a
correspondent, intended to vote, for Scott. We
are desirous of discovering their whereabouts.
Any information respecting them, or any evi
dence as to the identity of the "prophet," who
' failed in his prediction to the Whij, will entitle
the informant to the identical cent which Gen.
Pierce gave the boy to buy a stick of candy

"The Home Journal."
The above paper, which is undoubtedly the
best literary weekly in tLe "nion, will te pres
ented to the public on the first of January, prin
ted on fine white paper and with new and beau
tiful type. The terms are for one copy, S2 ;
for three copies 55, or for one copy three year s
S3 always in advance. Subscriptions to be
addressed to Morris & Willis, Editors, 307 Ful
ton street, New York.
There is no paper more useful, more enter
taining than "The Nome Journal." We always
read it with delight and pleasure, and glean
from its columns much that is instructive and
particularly interesting. Its editorials are writ
ten in an admirable manner and generally on
subjects of peculiar interest. Its correspondence
from many quarters is a valuable feature of the
paper. Its extracts, foreign and domestic, are
of the highest and best order of literature. The
paper is really the ''Chronicle of all that inter
ests all classes of society," and the home circle
is hardly complete without it. If Dear Reader,
you want a good eastern journal, and should
fcubsmbe for the best one 'The Home Jour
nal." You will find it to be a paper worth hav
ing, containing every thing worth knowing.

TTe give below the returns of the Presidential
Election from every county in this State, from
which it will be seen that Gen. Pierce's major
ity over Gen. Scott is 19,7J7. The official re
turns at Harrisburg are no t likely to make a
very material alteration in these figuies.
The vote polled is the 1 argest ever cast, ex
ceeding by over 20,000, that of 1848; but il
the full vote of the Stat3 bad been out it would
probably have reached -100,000. TPe present

The Dralse ox 'Wellington's Funeral.
The whole of the arrangements relative to the
obsequies of the late departed Duke, have now
been definately committed to the care of Messrs.
Banting & Sons, of St. James street. It was at
first supposed that Messrs. Dowbiggin hid been
instructed to carry out the necessary arrange
ments, but this departure front the usual course
of public funerals has not taUen place, and 'the
whole routine of the procession to, nnd inter
ment in, the o-iJh:ral. has been intri'sted to
the h inds of Messrs. Banting. th:in wlr,n. from
the lon experience of the firm in ceremonials
of this nature, none could be better fitted. To
the care of Messrs. Dowbiggin has been com
mitted the preparations and fitting up of the
large hall of Chelsea Hospital, where it is in
tended that the revered remains shall lie instate
during three days, most probably the 15th, 16th
and 17th of November. The whole of the large
hall and approaches leading to it will likewise
be hung in black upon this solemn occasion. It
is believed that on the night of the 17th, the
body will be escorted to the Horse Guards, where
a state chamber will have been prepared for its
reception by Messrs. Banting, to whose care the
whole of the subsequent proceedings will then
be given. Beyond these almost general orders
little has been decided upon, the greater part of
the details being still under consideration.
The superb and appropriate designs (most
of them emblnmatical of Ihe career of the dis
tinguished hero) have already been executed for
the catafalque or funeral car ; and Messrs.
Banting only wait until a selection has been
made by the proper authorities to give the ne
cessary orders for its construction. Though, of
course, only designed to serve a temporary pur
pose, it will be as rich in its various fittings and
emblazonments as befits the solemn occasion on
which it will be used. It is intended, 'we be
lieve, to be drawn by six horses, and will be as
We insert at length in another art of our
paper, a somewhat remarkable article that ap
peared in a late number of the London Times.
The subject is "Cuba," and the disposition which
is manifested by a portion of the people of the
United States to invade and posses themselves of
that Island. The Times has heard of the Order
of the Lone Star, and has attached to the asso
ciation more than ordinary importance. The
Editor says that he can scarcely credit the state
ments which bave been transmitted to him, re
specting the power and extent of this associa
tion, and he thinks it highly discreditable to the
American people, that such a body should have
been formed at all, for the deliberate purpose of
plundering a foreign State. In thi3 seutimenta
very large portion of the American public will
concur. But the truth is, we have ever regard
ed this Lone Star business as a "paper tiger"
in other words, a very fearful scar crow upon
paper, but a very insignificant organization in
fact. Most of the prominent citizens whose
names were associated with it in the rumors o
FR03I OUR EXCHANGES.
aB-When Alexander the Great was asked on
his death bed whom he wished to succeed him
in his empire, he answered, "the most worthy."
When the fathers of the American Republic were
framing a Constitution for the preservation of
its liberties, they cherished the hope that the
people would confide the administration of the
new Government to "the most worthy."
It has already been proposed to tear down
the old State House in Boston, to make room
for a monument to Daniel Webster in the very
heart of the city. It should be a colossal statue
of Quincy granite towering above all other ob

True, ever and anon we have a report from

point, that another expedition for Cuba is in a

EQwOn the night of General Scott's nomina

also be erected over the space in the cathedral
where the body will be placed. In the mean
time the erection of galleries within St. Paul's
continues to proceed rapidly, though we believe
the scaffolding, about which the workmen are
already employed outside the west front cathe

subject to considerable alteration. The whole

Another Shocking Murder.
We regret, deeply regret, to have to record Lf gixtecn hundred men and eight pieces of ar-
the commission of another shocking murder
within the limits of our county. On Friday
night last, about 12 o'clock, a man named
James Shirley, residing on the Bedford turn
pike, near Learner's tavern, and about a mile
and a half beyond Newry, murdered his wife in
the mos.t brutal and inhuman manner. The in
strument used to accomplished his fiendish pur
pose was an ordinary nail hammer, with which
the inhuman monster beat his poor, helpless
victim on the head, smashing her skull in seve.
