SUNBU11Y AMERICAN AND SHAM0K1N JOU11NAL
athai is of i.kttrr from Ton, lAtl l KknKVA, N. Y., ) September 14, 1851. J Having arrived ftt lliis beautiful village last eVeuiinr, In company w ith my friends mid travelling companion, I), flrautijjam, David Tnoirart, and A. E. Kapp, Esq. I thoii?ht I conlil no belter employ a few lei sure moments than hy jotting down n few of our "incidents of travel." Geneva is ono of thnso lr rt.nl i To I towns of which there are tiiitc n number in lliis Stale. lis location is at the foot of Seneca lake. Tho population is about nix thousand. In thoir buildings and their gardens, the Genevans show much good lasle. The lots are large, and ample yards, filled with thrubbery and shade trues, are common in almost every part of the town, except iho business portion near tho Lake hhore. Tho Hotels are large, ami cotnfortn lile, ar.d judging from Ihe Franklin, in which we are (jnarleied, well kepi. Indeed com fort and cleanliness is everywhere apparent. . The contrast in travelling facilities between this Stale and the northern part of Pennsyl vania is grenl indeed, and places our neigh bors of New York, nt least twenty years ahead of us in impiovemenls. The H ip from Northumberland to Williamsport, in the P.ickel, ufiord but few incidents, from Wil liamsport lo Ralstor, twenty-five miles, there was norning peculiar excepting that we were towed in a ear by a rope over one of the most rickelly rail roads ever used, though we are pleased to learn that this load will be relaid with an iron track, bv January next, and we trust ere long that it will bo continued to El miia. Having arrived at Ilalslon in the eve 111112, we were of course regaled with what every traveller arriving there expeels, us naturally as a waterman does his ham and eggs, I mean a supper of liout, fiesh from tlui brook. My friend D.tvid, whose know ledge in the science of gastronomy is im' confined alone to the flesh of SlmiijJ'ae aim Chittagong fowls of ponderous vveu-hi, view, ed with epicurean delight a well heaped plate of this delicious fish placed K-fuie us. That we all did justice to the ample fare of our host, is most true, anil if fiieud David look the lion's share of the speckled piscato rial, it was conceded to him by ihe parly, as a mailer of right, as no one was belter cn tilled from si.o and corporal capacity to maintain tho title, but 1 should not wonder lu 11 1 nl in the next Milloinan, a dill'eieul ver sion ol lliis story from the pen of my imagin ative friend in defence of himself. The Landlord, generous fellow ! rhaiged him but live cents extra, being the first cost of the half dozen additional trout of w hich I paid ill making change. Tho great products of t Iii -s narrow valley, almost all the way to El mira, a distance of seventy-live miles, is lumber, which, with the iron ore and bitu minous coal won! I, of itself, mislain a rail road, independent of the immense travel from tho lakes, and thu West. Next morn ing at 3 o'clock, we set out over a rough road in a sterile narrow valley, to Canton, fifteen miles, for breakfast, and if 1 did not enjoy codfish and stewed chickens in close proximity, as well as some of the party, es pecially when the same unpolished knife and fork was used in both dishes, I at least made ample amen .Is at the elegant supper tablo on board the steamer that conveyed us from Jefferson, at tho foot of Seneca lake, to this place, at its head, a distance of forty miles. At Troy, in Bradford county, fifteen miles further, we found a small town with a num ber of elegant buildings, and greatly improv ed, since its destruction by lire a few years since. Near this place, a most cruel mur det was committed a few weeks since, on the person of a constable, Mr. Pomeroy, who had arrested a man named Peters, for ob taining goods undei false pretences. Peters having been tied, and placed on a wagon was cut loose by a man named Henson, one of his confederates, when Peter plunged bis knife into the heart of the constable, who only lived long enough to exclaim that he was stabbed. Peters and Henson were both immediately arrested and conveyed to jail. I trust no false sympathy will prevent this wretch from expiating his crime on the gal lows. From Troy to Elmira, twenty four miles, them was no:hing peculiar or attrac tive, excepting tho numerous dog-power churns, and a most unique, durable and nes. tic looking fence, made of pine stumps laid nil the sides, the long spreading roots inter locked, firming apeifect barricade. Within two miles of E'mira we struck the plank road, ihe first wo ever travelled over. This roail is about four years old, and is much used. The fact is, these loads are in hiuh favor in this Slate, and the slock is of the most profitable kind, yielding from 10 to 55 per cent, with a reserved fund sufficient for renewal every six or seven years. The jilank are laid, or lather appear imbedded in the ground, and the road ilself is hardly dis tingnishable, at a short distance, from a coin, moo road. Elmira is but eight miles north of the .-;;.! line, and although previously a () .l.i i.-i.i, -loan, is now, since the consliucti. n m ;!';..'. eiantio modern improvement, the Sea Yuik and Eiiu Kail Itoad, one of tic: i.mM thriving towns in the Slate. Ii i h.uaieoiuely located, on a large Hal, surrounded in evety direction by feitile fields in a hili statu of cultivation, lint in this, us in almost every prosperous village, manufacturer and me chanic, were busily employed in various branches of business. Some of I ho Hotels in lliis pl.ice, in p. )int of style and capacity, svouM Jo credit lo any of our largo cilies. Another u in fin) cmn.-e of erection, ut a cost ill' JOO.OJO which, it is said, w ill uccnmmu dale 601) pennus. These improvement are tin result of 111 Erie Uail Head and may af ford some idea of the gruat iinpoitance of the completion of the Buiibtiry and Erie rail ruiiJ, vtbicli iu point and gruje, distance and -.le!y, would have iivnneiiifl advantage over the New Yoikroud. At FJirjUa ua luok the ears for JeileiMjn, at Ilia head of Rt.'iieea like, ii mile. 'l liis road like the Kiie road is of the wide guage, the rails being laid kix feel opart. The ears are about ten feel wide in side, and will comfortably accommodate 3 ju each seat. We reached Jeljursou in lifly minute s, and were soon on boaid the lieu l.oder, a l.-.rgH vessel for to small n like, and built at a cost of about f fiO.OiJO. liul the lake travel .v ill be grcaily diminished, as the rail road l i .1 (fersnn, Is already extended to C'annndaignn, and will be formally opened for (ravel lo morrow. At Canandaigna it connects with the line of road lo Buffalo. The competition for tiavel is great, and Ihe fare is necessarily very low. Our fare from Northumberland lo Elmira 115 miles, was five dollars; from Elmira to Jefferson, 82 miles, fifly cents from Jefferson to Geneva, by water, 40 miles, fifty cents; from Geneva to Rochester, nbonl 50 miles, fare 81.25. If the Williamsport and Elmira road was fin. ished, and the road from Harrisbntg and Sun bury extended lo Williamsport, Ihe whole distance from Harrisburg lo Rochester could be accomplished in ten hours, at an expense of nboul six dollars. With such facilities nnd at such rales, it would be impossible lo pre. diet iho vast amount of travel t lint would lake this route front the great nnd growing West. To morrow wo shall continue our journey to Rochester, nt which place the ireat Agricultural Fair will be held for three days, commencing on Tuesday ihe Ifiih iust The concourse there will be immense and is estimated at no less than 200,000 persons. The sudden transition from heal to cold on Saturday afternoon is most uncomfortable. Though sweltering with the heat, in a few hours afterwaids we were comfortable with cloaks nnd overcoats. In my next letter 1 will endeavor to describe some of the many 1 interesting sights of this great exhibition. I K.ietiKsTF.R, N. Y , ) j Sept. 18, o . ) j This city probably never contained within ' its limits as many strangers as are now here, j attending Ihe great Fair of Ihe New York j Slate Asiicultniul Society. The Hotels are all , crowded and literally overflowing. Our party was foitunate in secuiing comfoi table lodg- I inirs at O'oncrf'sj Hall, a new Hotel near the , Depot, not so lame, but I think belter kept than eiiliei of tho clheis. The- ground epou j which tho Fair is lr:!J, is an enclosure with j beards, ol twenty l.ine acres, about a mile and a half fiom tlio city. Probably not less ; than 300 vehicles of all kinds were employed j in carrying visitors to and fiom the Fair ground. The road has been enveloped in I one continued cloud of dnsl, so that one cuuld scaicely distinguish nn object twenty yaids ahead. The first two days only members nnd exhibitors were admitted, each member and exhibitor being provided with a badge, about eight thousand of which weie disposed of, at one dollar each. On Thursday the doors were open for all, at one shilling ad mittance Tho receipts were about 1-1,000. This forms part of the funds, out of which tho premiums are paid. We were politely leceived as members of tho Pennsylvania Society, and presented with badges, &c. Mr. Kapp, one of our party was selected as one of the Judges to award premiums for hor ses. Quite a uumbei of these valuable ani mals were on the ground, and it was soon discovered by the knowing ones, that Mr. ICapp was well posted on this subject, and hence his appointment, which was unex pectedly conferred upon him. The array of fine cattle was said lo be greater than at any previous exhibition. The Dm ham short horns, ssem to be most in favor, and areally pre ponderated in number. In size they are cer tainly ahead of all others. Tho Devonshire, with their uniformly daik red color nnd curly necks, were much admired, but in size and weight they are small when compared with the Dm hums. A noble Dm ham bull, the property of Mr. Ferguson, a member of Par liament, of Canada, was sold lo a farmer of Seneca county, for $150. Canada West lur nished some of the finest stock on the ground. There are probably 40 or 50 of these valua ble animals exhibited, one amo-ig ihem be in;; valued at $ 1,000. One from Ihe State of Maine was perfectly while, and was much admired for his strength and make, lie ap pealed to ho as savage anil test less as a Men gal tiger, and was, ns most of them were, secured by a ring in the nose, nnd led by a slall' clasped to the ring. Amon tho furi osi. ics was u Hungarian bull and cow, of the color of a stray squirrel. They are of tho or dinary size, unit were imported when calves, a few years ago. Tho tail of the bull almost reaches the ground, and terminates with a line largo tuft or bunch of hair, which must prove exceedingly serviceable in fiy lime. A yoke of mammoth steers, weighing 2,500 pounds each, attracted much allention. The skills or sheds for horses, numbered about lot). The cattle were mostly in open stalls. The slock of swine was not so large, but there were some lino porkers of the male species, neaily as lariie as nn ox. A Chinese sow with 13 pias were exhibited by the President. The stock of sheep 1 did not much admire, except a few Sonlh downs. A pen about sivly feel in length, contained eve ly variety of poultry. Some were large and line, but I am inclined lo believe that David Tag-jart, Esq., of Noithumberland, could have taken the premium with a pair of his 'Miillayonts 111 'h" eeiln- of thu field is Mechuiiie's I lull. : a luiyc trie; -i.iti iv I 111!

The show of flowcis weio mostly Dahlia. Thu exhibition of fruit was much the most attractive, ni least to my taste. The display of peaches exceeded any thing ( ever saw. The Crawford early, Royal Kensington, and Honest John's, weie univer sally nJ mil oil . The largest and finest of these were from Canada West. The collec tion of apples was equally fine. Another en closme contained a large assoitnient of arti cles fiom Ihe Dairy. Another a vanety of all kinds of vegetables, fanning imple ments, such as ploughs, threshing machines, straw cullers, McCormick's und ilusa)' reaping machines, grass cutting machines, &e., coveied a large space of ground. The number of pcisous present on Thurs day, was variously ('Militated al 50,000 In 100,000 pernios, of nil st xes, sixes and con ditions. Though what was surprising x some Europeans, nut a rugged man or beg ear was lo be seen. A number of Hloomeis alu made llicir .ippearaucv on the gioutid and attracted, probably, mors attention than tho finest cattle, though some of ihem v ere not as much admired. A pretty gill, not loo far advanced in life, with a good figure, en cased In the Bloomer costume, is certainly Very attractive.. Two such appeared on the ground yesterday. They were dressed alike, and were probably sisters. They wore hand some straw hats, trimmed with green ribbon falling back on the shoulders, brown satin short skirts, with black satin trousers, very wide, handsomely trimmed with lace, and lied at the ancles, patent leather shoes, and a green silk sash thrown over the right shoul der and tied under the left arm. In the ere niug I met an interesting, bill distressed young giil, of about sixteen summers, in Ihe Bloomer costume, nt our Hotel, who had just arrived with her brother from Wisconsin As the landlord could not give them lodg ings, he had gone out early in Ihe evening to hunt lodgings elsewhere, and hud not re turned at 10 o'clock. The poor girl was weeping, and could not account for the long ubsenco of her brother. The young ladies in the room were endeavoring lo console her. There are rpiile a number of distinguished men in attendance at the Fair. Among them are Ex-Piesidenl Tyler, Gen. Wool, Governors Hunt, Marcy, Morton and Wrighf, &c. Judge Douglass of Illinois, will deliver the ndd'oss to morrow. Many are already leaving. This evening a train of twenty one loin; ear left for Buffalo, all crammed full. The landlords, the hucksters and the hackmen, have had a glorious time. The lumij,,,,! k iml souls, had agreed not to charge more than two dollars per day. Even .ie p,00l black charged double price, and the Barbers in some instances a quarter for a s,aVe. THE .lE?kIC.lT. SUNBURY. SATl'RDAY, SKrTEMBF.il 9T, IMI. II. It. MASSER, i:.lllor nnd Proprietor.

They will appear in our next. The meeting, we learn, was very lata;e and t-it-lliutiastic, and was most ably and cluij'n iit ly addressed by Geu. Kase, John J'urter, Esq., Dr. Lewis Heck, the democratic can didate for Senator, and J. B. Packer, Esq., in the English language, and by William Follmer, Esq., the democratic candidate lor Assembly, in the German language. CHARLES W. MKGIKHt ESQ. The many friends ol this gentleman, in Ibis County, are proud of the nomination which has been tendered him, by the de mocracy of Schuylkill county, as their can didate for the elevated position of Presi dent Judge of that district, and are highly gratified to learn that the prospects of hit election are to flattering as to render his success almost morally certain. Mr. Hegins is a native of this place, where he resided until the time of his re. moval to Poltsville, a few years since, and we know we hazard nolhing in saying that, perhaps, no genlleman of his age, in our community, was so well and favorably known and so universally esteemed as he. Ilis high moral character, unbending in tegrity, peculiar boldness and independ ence of thought and action, and uniform courtesy of manner, secured for him the confidence of the whole people ; while his powers of reasoning always clear, logi cal, comprehensive, argumentative and vig orous, his soundness of judgment, clearness of perception and thorough knowledge ol the principles and practice of the law, gave him a commanding position at the bar which it is not the fortune of many to attain. There are but lew, if indeed any, within the range of our acquaintance, bet ter fitted by nature and education, to wear the judicial ermine, and if our enlightened neighbors, the people of Schuylkill, have as high a regard for their own interests and as correct an appreciation of true merit as they should, we have no doubt of his tri umphant election. Such is our confidence in his ability, honesty and uprightness, that we know the position cannot honor him more than he will adorn it. California Ccius. ARRIVAL OF THE CHEROKEE.

A lady, who got aboard ut Shawneclown, was killed before getting out of sight of her home. The Steamer Cumberland Valley wah bul a shoit distance below the Jackson at the time of Iho explosion, bul immediately re turned, and the ulficers rendered all I ho as sistance in their power.
