works are composed of the Eastern, West

and the Columbia and rortase Railroads.
Their orignal cost was 13,050,077, and
it is now proposed to sell them for the
ross sum of 813,000,000, and to place
tint amount at the credit of the sinking
fund for the payment of the public debt,
and to make annual payments to the same
fund out of the annual revenues until the
debt can be extinguished. The debt of

interest of about 2,000,000, and its rev

The Whig Nominee for Judge cf
the Supreme Court.
The Inquirer in referring to the action
of the Whig State Convention, speaks
thus of the Candidate selected :
It has already been announced in our
columns, that the Whig State Convention,
which assembled at Hutingdon on Thurs
day last, after due consideration, nomina
ted Thomas- A. Budd, Esq., of this city,
as the candidate of the part' for Judge
of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.
The Convention was well attended, and
its proceedings throughout, were cordial
and harmonious. Mr. Budd is a promi
nent, able and influential' member of the
Philadelphia Bar. lie has had much ex
perience as a lawer, maintains a reputa
tion of the highcit character for manli
ness and integrity, while there are few
men who deservedly enjoy a greater de
cree of popularity among his profession.
Uc is modest and unobtrusive, and has
never sought public position. Calm,
thoughtful, well informed and ripe of
judgment, he possesses all the qualiGca-
tions for the di&tingui.-hed post for which
he has 1k?ch nominated, and will doublets
receive a liberal and enthusiastic support.
native of Philadelphia, widely known
and generally esteemed, the selection can
not but be regarded as judicious under
the circumstance, and it will be received
with marked favor. Among the delegates
of the Convention were many of the most
distinguished men of the State, and the
intelligence they gave of the prospects of
the cause and the party, was of the most
gratifying character. We look forward
to the results of the campaign not onl'
with hope, but with confidence. The
profligacy and corruption that have char
acterized the management of our public
works, have inspired a lively feeling of
indignation throughout the entire Com
monwealth, and the days of the existing
dynasty may be regarded as numbered.

A Ln?iy Caiiioriilau.
A letter from California relates many
peculiar sights and incidents, one of which
is about a rich youn man having to turn
washer-wonian. "I have met a vounsr
man who at home moved in the best cir
cles of societ', and is a gentleman every
inch of him, failing to make anything in
the mines, went into a certain town, and
actually took in washing, and cleansed
for his bread, the filthy garments of those
who, at home, he would not acknowedge
as acquaintances. It was rather an amu
sing siht to sec him at the wash tub, soa
king and scrubbing the dirty linen of his
motley patron, swearing at his foil" aud
upbraiding his luck.
A J2;;:a 5ioS by :i Sianlto.
A letter in the Philadelphia Ledger
slates that a fjpw days ago a man named
Louman, storekeeper in Siddouburg, York
county, was out gunuing, when he discov
ered a large snake, and in order quickly
to secure it from running away he placed
the butt of his rifle, loaded with a ball at
the time, upon the body of the snake,
icith his hand directly across the niuzzlc.-
The snake, in its writhings to free itself,
coiled around the gunstock, and with one
of its coils struck the hammer, which was
down upon the cap at the lime, hard c
uough to discharge the gun, the contents
of which entered the ball of the hand
near the wrist, and, in a diagonal direc
tion, came out between the junction of the
little finger and the one next to it. Hap
pily no bones were broken.
Alberts, the Hangman Kidnapper
Bigler's friend Alberti is most unques
tionably a creature of the vilest character
that ever breathed the breath of life; and
it is strange that such a beast should com
mand the good of any one professing to
possess a heart, and strangestill that an
Executive of such a State as Pennsylva
nia could descend so low as to affiliate to
such a decree with such a scoundrel as to
release him from the Penitentiary and
turn him loose again to prey upon society.
The following picture of this fiicnd of
Gov. Biglcr is from the Philadelphia Reg
ister, and is as true as it is graphic:

The editors of the Ilolllidaysburg Reg

evils and corruptions of the present sys

vcr' truly says :
What began in right, party politics has

been a monument of pride is now a mon

partizan idler aud drone; the party pimp,
and pauper the hold plunderer, and the
cunning cheat hide and harbor and get
fat and sleek along and upon our canals
and railroads. Enboldened by the suc
cess of their prodeccssors, and the easy
familiarity with which State officers, toy
with the public treasure, they become
impudent in their shame, and treat as a
pleasant joke, conduct which a few years
ago would have been called theft. The
