JVbrlA Carolina. Wo have nothing decisive
as to tho result of tho election in this State.
Tho Washington Telegraph (which by the
way is doubtful authoiity) gives tho votes for
uovcrnor in 40 counties as follows:
Dudley (White) 21,022
Spaight (Van Burcn") 10.598
Upon this authority tho Whin Tinners hnvn not
down North Carolina as certain for White..
It may bo so, but as there aro eighteen coun
ties yet to bo heard from, it mav bo well to
wuu a nine uciorc wo snout 'victory.
On the same authority it is announced that
Mr Grahani, whoso seat in Congress was con
tested Inst winter nnd the election referred back
to tho peoplo of his district, has been elected
by a triumphant majority. This is important
if true, as tho vote of the Stato will thereby Iks
secured to Judgo White in case tho election of
President should devolve on the House of Rep
Kentucky. There is no doubt rcsncctlnu
the election of Mr Clarke, the Whirr enndidate
for Governor. In forty-eight counties his ma
jority is said to exceed 7000. The congressio
nal elections, so far as tho results aro known.
stand precisely the same as heretofore.
Bn.VTTLr.Bono Hioh School. Wo are re
quested to stato that this School will bo open
ed again for tho reception of pupils on Monday
tho 5tli of September next, under the caro of
Mr Alfked B. Eur, a graduate from Amherst
College, assisted by his sister, Miss Elv, in
the female department. Mr Ely hns ample re
commendations in regard to scholarship nnd
character, and wo hope he will not be disap-
puiiuiii in mo promised expectation or receiv
ing a liberal patronage. Terms as usual.
Foreign. The trial of Alibeau for attemp
ting to assassinnte tho French King took place
on the 3th of July, and hU execution followed
three days afterwards. Thirty thousand troops
attended the execution, and the crowd of spec
tators was immense.
Spain. The intelligence from this unhappy
country is far from being cheering cither to the
philanthropist or the politician. The civil war
now raging there is attended with the most
frightful cruelties; prisoners are butchered with
U3 much coolness as the beasts. A battle was
fought on the 12th July between Gen. Evans
and tho Carlists, near St. Sebastian, in which
much blood was shed without any important
result. Don Carlos is said to have appointed
the celebrated French General Bourmout his
commander in chief. A popular tumult broke
out nt Figucras on tho 11th, in which the Go
vernor and several others were killed.
A dreadful calamity occurred in tho town of
Grosswardcin, in Hungary, on tho 19th June.
A Cre broke out and extended rapidly and con
tinued burning for three days, during which
time 1500 houses, four churches, and many
public edifices, as well as the fortess of the
town, fell a prey to the devouring flames.
Tho Cholera has again made its appearance
in Hungary and Austrian Lombardy. The
disease is also raging at Milan, where 80 men
belonging to the garrison died in one day.
The London Morning Herald of July 13th,
snyis "Mr Stevenson, the newly appointed U.
States Envoy, is described to bo a gentleman
of most courtly manners, and likely to bo pop
ular with our Aristocracy."
More Speed. John Bull is still in advance
of tho Yankees. In London the model ofa lo
comotive is exhibited which is to go an hun
dred miles an hour on a railroad, without steam 1
Mr. Wm. Dukeheart of Baltimore, has in
vented a new method of making harness. Sew
ing is done away with, and copper rivets used.
It is said to be more durable and economical.
The difference. In some parts of Indiana,
corn is sold at ten cents a bushel, eggs for three
cents a dozen, nnd chickens nrc given away.
In Boston eggs are twenty-seven cents a dozen,
potatoes about two dollars a bushel, and you
can hardly look nt a chicken without paying
Dr. Jcnnison, of Northampton. Ms. has
been appointed chief director of tho Mint at
Mexico, and is about to return to this country
to procure the necessary machinery for coining.
A free country. A nian named Benton, in
Barre, Vt. placed a eick daughter under tho
caro of a quack, named Smith, who killed her,
of course. Tho father has published an article
in tho Montpelier Watchman, in which ho
says tho public arc making a great noise nbout
tho quack's killing his child, but as this is a
free country, ho had a right to choose his own
physician, whether his daughter was killed or
cured! Boston Transcript.
Halifax, Aug. -1. At Windsor, two men on
Friday evenine last were amusiiiir themselves
in an Indian canoe, on a pond; the canoe upset
and both were drowned. Tho wife of ono of
tho men, with a child in her nrms, witnessed
tho fatal accident, and the other man was her

three columns: "One hundred acres of tn'W

Cheap enough. Flat gold watches accu
rately finished, with vertical movements, can
bo bought in London for $30. Those with
engine turned cases and four jewels cost $47.
Tho Montreal Gazette says that "tho man
who robs or cheats a printer, must bo a most
consummate villain, and his punishment ought
to be commensurate with his crimes."
An editor's room at the south was lately
broken open, and about thirty dollars stolen.
Rather a tough story; we never knew nn edi

A woman near Nantes lately wrnpped herself j

A Mr. Steel of New Hampshire has been

A righteous decision. A judgo in Kentucky

of tho way.
It was n saying of Lord Halifax, thnt "if or

Messrs. Editors: I have been wniiinrr Jn dm'
hope that some convention would nominato
some three persons whom I could support for
Senators from this county; hut the conven
tions arc all gone by and no ticket nor no three
men are nominated that are satisfactory to the
people of the west part of tho count v. I wluli
you to insert the following nomination in your
paper until tnc election as the Farmers' ticket:
Hon. PIIINEHAS WHITE of Putncv,
Hon. JOHN ROBERTS, Townshend)
ADIN THAYER, Esq. Wardsboro.
In makinir this nomination I have hail no re
gard to Van Burenism, Hamsonism, Masonry
nor Antimasonrv. but to the winlus nml vnin
of the Farmer. These men, although engag
ed in other pursuits, are all of them more or

Wardsboro, Aug. 22, 1330.
Mr. Editor: I have seen two communica
tions in your paper nnd one in the Joumnl
printed at Bellows Falls, upon the subject of
iiiu ociiuiuniii iii'iiiiiiauon uir tnc norm partol
the county, all of which were intended to bol
ster up tho fading prospects of the Cashier of
mo uankoi IJcllows t alis tor thcollice of Sen
ator. It has been fully ascertained that one of
those communications was written at the Bel
lows Falls Bank, and tho others douhllens orirr-
inatcd from the same source.. In all these com
munications precisely the same language is used
in more instances than one. Tho writer at
tempts to eonvinro the peoiilc that the popu
larity of William Henry, the pet of the Bank,
is unbounded, and that the opposition to his
nomination is confined to n few Indiviij lunli.
iNow myoliierlin askinc or n sine II snacc in
your columns ia to undeceive the public, and to
let the people know that the opposition to his
nomination is very gcncial among the moral
anu respectable class ol people in the north
part of the county. They know him person
ally, nnd that alone is n sullicient reason whv
they should not support him. They arc very
desirous he should surrender his claims, if he
ha-s nnv, for the oflieo of Senator, to Borne in
dividual in whom the people can repose confi
dence. His nnmc upon the Senatorial ticket
is a dead weight upon it, and I hope you will
disencumber that ticket by placing the name of
Eli.ery Ai.uee upon it, instead of the nnme
of the candidute of the Bank. And by way of
advico I would suggest to tho Cashier not to
inflict any more of his fulsome and disctislim?
egotisms upon tho public, but cnlmly and qui
etly await the decision of tho freemen. Possi
bly nftcr tho election he may find come friend
tn wrilo his epitaph upon bis political tomb
stone. An Antimo.nopoi.ist.
Mesirs. Editors: A correspondent in your
last paper declares himself "tinctured witli en
thusiasm" in the support of Mr Robinson for
Congress. It is not my intention to enter into
a controversy wan your correspondent in re-
unrd to tho talents of Mr R. as 1 havo neither
resided near him nor had access to tho Judges
of tho Supremo Court. On enquiry I am in
formed ho 1ms been a member of tho State Le
gislature two years, and though I have no re
collection of hearing from him while there, as
"one of tho first men in the State." or in nnv
other character, yet I am not disposed to dis
parage lus talents, winch lor any thing I know
mav bo vcrv resnectable. I rpr.nlliv.t thnt wlinn
ho was a enndidnte two years ago ngninst Mr
Hall we heard largo stories of his great tioi:
laritv in his own county, and wo were led
suppose that where the qualifications of both
tho candidates wero intimately known, ho was
to carry all boforo him but when tho votes
came in they told another story; and if my In
formation is ot all to be rclietl upon thev will
do tho samo again. Of tho qualifications of
Mr Hall which your correspondent undertakes
to depreciate, littlu need be said; his talents
are too well known not only by those who havo
"resided near him," but by those abroad to
need a newspaper culogium in their fuvor, or
to siifi'er in tho public estimation from a news
paper attack; they arc of an order which will
qualify him to fill tho station he occupies with
high credit to himself and with honor to the
peoplo he represents. Your correspondent also
supports Mr R, on the principlo of "rotation in
ofiice." If I um not mistaken there is now a
very comfortoblo oflieo under the General Go
vcrnment which has been held by ono individ
ual in this eoiinfy much loncrer than Mr Hall
has been in Congress, nnd I have not heard of
its being soon to bo vacated, except indeed tt
has been whispered that should cireumstanr.es
permit the rotative principlo mny bo bo far np-
jini-u in mii niciimoeiii its to ron him out ol his
present office into one more permanent and de
sirable! This 1 doubt not will bo in Ptrict
conformity with tho established usages of the
party; but I believe among friends it would
hardly bo considorcd orthodox to carru the
principle much further. Tho experience ofi
