Scene, Main street Millersburg, Monday
morning-after the Election.
Country Democrat. Good day 'Squire,
any news about the election ?
Squire. Yes, we're beat, and we always
will get beat as long as the Democrats put
such abominable swill tubs in nomination
as they have for years.
Country gentleman walks off wandering
what will become of Mr. so and so, who
have been training on rot gut whiskey for
a year or two, in order that they might be
suitable candidates, if a new rulo is to be
introduced into the partj.
After it was known here that Burns had
voted for Lecompton, he became the best
abused man wo ever knew. Tho Democ
racy were up in arms and ready "for de fray."
The Republicans laid back and enjoyed the
fun. Time cooled off the wrath of our op
ponents and they once more took Burns in
to their embraces. The day of trial came
and ho was beaten. No sooner is the re
sult kuown than dozens of the very meu
that voted for him are heard to rejoice over
his defeat. In fact wo have yet to hear of
the first man expressing any sympathy for
him in his defeat. . Poor Burns,
Rattle his bones over the stones,
He's a miserable traitor vliom nobody ons."
;C2Ono of Burns' friends from Coshoc
ton, boasted of tho "number of speeches ho
had made during the campaign. He made
ono in Millersburg and wo presume all tho
others were just like it. Stepping up to a
bar in a Grocery, and reaching forth bis
arm as if about to demolish his opponent,
ho exclaimed : "Here, d n you, setout
that whiskey!" The argument was con
clusive and tho victory won in a horn.
JZ&'Tka victors in Pennsylvania have
ceased computing their majorities on the
State ticket, they being so largo that a
matter of Five or Ten Thousand more or
less is no object. A table of official and
reported returns from thirty-six Counties,
now before us, puts John M. Rend, for Su
preme Court, 35)335 ahead Berks, West
moreland, Northampton, Columbia, Luz
erne", 'Montgomery, aud nearly all tho old
Democratic strongholds, being included, as
well as many of those of the Opposition,
but not including Erie, Crawford, Warren,
Mercur and Somerset Judging from these,
we infer that the majority of Read in the
wbola State is as likoly to roach as to fall
below 40,000 !

Tho .Republicans of Millersburg and v:
cinily, had quite a Jubilee over the defeat
of Bcess, and the result of the elections in
Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania and Iowa, on
Tuesday evening last. It was got up on
sbort-nolice, but passed off well. There
was a large torch light procession which'
marched through the principle streets pro
ceeded by the Miilersburg Brass Band, dis
coursing some of their sweetest music Af
ter tho marching was over C. F. Vor'hes,
Esq., was called, on for a speech. He en
tertained them for half an hour or so, with
an excellent speech, after which there was
more music and then the fire-works. The
attendance from the country was excellent
and everything passed off agreeable to all,
except to some of our political opponents,
who seem to think that because they have
heretofore monopolized all the political cele
brations, that they ought to coulinuc to
do so., But if we mistake not, they will
find that a new leafis to bo turned in

jJSTThe Holmes .County Fair held in
Millersburg last week, did not amount lo
much so far as the exhibition of stock, Ag-
ncultural Inplements, fec, went lo make
up tbo show, and unless the Company can
procure suthble grounds and havo it en
closed and otherwise fixed up, they had
better give up the idea of ever having
another Fair in Holmes county. The at
tendance of people on the second day of
the Fair was very large, and we havo no
doubt it would bo found as good an invest
ment here, as it hasprovod to by else
where, to purchase grounsd, properly en
close it and then charge for admission into

publican gives a loud crow over tho result

300, and give majorities for Gen. Spink
for Congress 77, Neal McCov for Sheriff
34, Fred. Fluke for Auditor 30, and John
Sickmau for Commissioner 58. The De
mocratic majorities aro for John Hindman
for Infirmary Director 22, E. A. Brown
Coroner 92, and William Given for
Common Pleas Judge by about 200. The
Republican claims a gain of about 1000
in the District over the vote last year.

of the People of Pens3 Ivania- The follow

Two years ago, about the same hour in
which wo are now writing, the editor of
the Press, then tho Chairman of the Dem

The Waterloo of 1858.
There has never beeen in Pennsylvania
a political overthrow so overwhelming
and complelo as that achieved on Tuesday.
Yet, startling as tbe results are, they only
faintly indicate the intense feeling of in
dignation and hostility which the Lecomp
ton policy of the Administration, and tho
prosriptive means by which it has sought
to enforce' it upon tho Democratic party,
has awakened. There never was a party
more completely and thoroughly Tylerizod
than the Administration party in this State.
Tho wonder is, not that the Administra
tion candidates received so few votes, but
that they received so many. On tho test
qnestions of making a finality of the Eng
lish Bill and the persecution of Judge
Douglas in Illinois, thero are absolutely no
persons in all our State in agreement with
the Administration, except those directly
influenced by its patronage. On llieso is
sues, fairly made, the majority in this
State, instead of being some 50,000 or
60,000, would have moro nearly approach

whole population could have been express

we regret to say, precisely at the time
that the evil policy of the opposition was
most deeply felt all over the country. Our
friends have struggled with intestine diffi
culties aud with" the open enemy, who
were encouraged to renewed efforts in con
sequence of the quarrels in our own party.
It is undoubtedly true, too, that the ques
tion of a revision of tbe tariff on tho basis
of direct protection to special interests had
much to do iu procuring votes for the op
position. They professed to be the pecu
liar friends of protection and to have it in
their power, if elected, to aid the people of
Pennsylvania. We shall be able hearafter
to lest the soundness of the judgment that
would thus strike down the meu of Penn

to a handful of political speculators who
really have no power to benefit honest in

With those Democrats who have leagued
with tho enemy and given them the victory
we can have no faith" or alliance. In look
ing over the field, Douglas and his Forneys
may find cause for rejoicing and self-Iau-dations.
They may glory alike in their
own shame aud the defeat of the noble old
party which they have betrayed and aban
doned. It is their work, and they'mav
claim from their new allies full compensa
tion for the services they have rendered.
They and the Black Republicans have been
faithful coworkers beginning with Judge
Douglas' attack on President Buchanan's
Administration at the commencement of
the last session of Congress, and ending
in their present joint and inglorious victor
ry. They have fought well and success
fully together. Let them together rejoice,
and in common prepare for the final doom
that awaits alike the original enemies and
the recent deserters of the Democratic
Remarkable Verifiction of a
A lady from the South, sojourning at
the house of Mr. John Elitch, No. 36 East
Fifth street, for some weeks, dreamed
night before last that a favorite sister, to
whom she was much attached, and whom
she had left at Mobile in the full enjoyment

great distress, and walkod about bar room,
wringing her hands and weeping as if her
heart would break. Several persons in the
house, among them Mr. E. himself, en
deavored to comfort her, assuring her of
tho folly of mourning over on idle dream.
The lady, however, insisted upon the,
truth thereof, declaring that she knew her
sister was no more. She had supposed her
self at her bedside, she said, and had sup
ported her sister in h r arms. She had
seen every lineament-and expression of the
face of her relative, who grew paler and
paler, and her breath shorterer and shorl-

clock in the appartment where the naratur

During the remainder of the night tha
distracted woman paced the floor in ill the
agony of bereavraent. It was useless to
reason with her or to seek to assage her
sorrow. Moruing came, and the breaktnst
hour, but she could not touch a morsel of
food. Still the storm of woe swept across
About ten o'clock a messenger from the
