laBgemeBt to settle witb the Printer when they
come to paj their Taxes. We bave been run
nine in debt lareely th past year for Paper.

Sectionalism Rebuked.
. . The utter demolition of the Democratic
party by the election of Mr. Li'dcoId, bas
saved this country from a bitter sectional
strife, that would have shattered the Union
from centre to circumference.
The Democracy, so for as its leaders are
concerned, is composed of equal parts, Dis-
snionUls and "Commercial" politicians.
The Southern Democracy is under the con
trol of traitors. The Northern Democracy
is governed by men who make politics a
trade. Over these, combined in detail, the
Republican party that is the people has
triumphed, and with the scattered, torn
and flying Democracy goes Disunion, Sec
tionalism, and perhaps civil war. .
The annals of politics afford no parallel
to this triumph of right over wrong. The
North, abused, villified, slandered, has
kept within the constitution, returned good
for evil, has laid down a conservative,
national platform, put in nomination a
national man, and, regardless of the jeers
and falsehoods heaped on its head, has ut
tered not a sectional sentiment, made not
threat, bnt marched right on to victory
the victory of the Union.
New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois,
Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Indiana,
Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire,
Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine, Iowa,
have given their votes for Lincoln and
Hamlin. We hope New Jersey may be
added to the list, and thus make a clear
sweep of the Free States East of the
Rocky Mountains.
' This voice has unmistakable echoes
from the Slave States. St, Louis gives a
majority for Lincoln. Wilmington, the
capitol of Delaware, gives a majority for
Lincoln. Baltimore gives nearly as many
votes for Lincoln as it does for Douglas-
Wheeling gives as many votes, into twen
ty-six, for Lincoln as it does for Douglas
and all through the Northern Slave Stales
are scattered Republican votes.
The victory is complete. Let our tri
umph be marked by magnanimity, and a
spirit of generosity that shall make even
the bitterest Southern enemies of Republi
canism respect its honesty, its patriotism,
its devotion to our common country.
STThe gallant Republicans of Wayne
came within about 40 votes of carrying the
county, last Tuesday.
Stark County gives Lincoln over 1000
Hamilton county gives 750 Republican
The vote in Ohio for Breckenridge, will
probable not exceed 10,000.
St. Louis Lincoln 8962, Douglas
8177, Bell 4192.
Scattering returns from the interior in
dicate that Douglas has carried that State.
Louisville Bell and Douglas men
give Kentucky to Bell by 10,000 to 15,000
maj. Returns too limited to form any re
liable estimate.
Louisville City Bell 3,823, Douglas
2.638, Breck. 859, Lincoln about 100.
Private dispatches say Louisiana has
gone for Breck. Returns from Southern
points below Tennessee, show Douglas1
vote quite feeble. States South of Ten
nessee line, all gone for Breck.
Philadelphia, city and co. gives Lincoln
majority of 8073 over all the oppsition.
Westmoreland co Lincoln will have
2000 maj. Alleghany co. 10,000

All the New England States nearly
unanimous for Lincoln.
MEaffy Making. The boys had a good
time of it for a few hours last night,
(Wednesday) after the 10 o'clock train' ar
rived. They had a bonfire on the Square,
good music and sent up cheer upon cheer
for old Abe. ' Occasionally they hollered
for "de Dougalass," out , of sympathy,
a be needed tbem most.
Holmes County.
890 majority for Douglas, and the "back
townships" etill voting. . .
. The vote polled was as follows: i
. Douglas, 2181.
Lincoln, 1391. ;
; Breckenridge, i- 49.
Bell, " ' 8.
Douglas over Lincoln, 890.
X"The entire block upon which the
Neil House, at Columbus, stands, was de
stroyed by fire, on Wednesday night.
The Grand Result.
Breckinridge has probably carried the
cotton States, Bkll the Cenlra!raed Lin
coln the Northern States. -! But with old
New England, New York, Pennsylvania
and the Western States, Lincoln is elected
by the people and so" far as the Presidency
is concerned it matters bow bow the bal
ance of the Union bas gone Douglas,
while he will receive double the popular
vote of both Bell and Bbkckkkridos and
nearly if not quite as many votes as Lin
coln, may not carry a single State,
although Missouri and California are con
ceded to him. This shows that was the
President elected by the direct vote of the
people-a very different result might be ob
tained from that produced by the interven
tion of the Electoral colleges as is now
the law. Cleaeland Plaindealer, Nov. 6.
Who is the Sectional Candidate?
Lincoln has 1082 votes in Baltimore, and
Douglas has only 1 ,562 in the same city.
Lincoln has three hundred majority in Wil
mington, Delaware.
The fiTth Legislative District in Delaware
gives 1 plurality for Lincoln, and the Republi
can candidate for Conbcess ia the same District
has 43 majority.
St. Louis, in Missouri, give Lincoln 815 ma
jority over Douglas. "
Wheeling, Virginia, gives Lincoln COO votes,
and Douglas only 527.
Now, hurrah for Douglas the Katumal candi
date, and groan for Lincoln the Bedimed candi
date over the left.
Wide Awakes.
The Millersharg Wide Awakes are requested
to meet Monday Evening next. Wide Awakes
from surrounding towns are invited to meet wilS
them, as 'tis proposed to have a little jollifica
tion over the election of Old Abe. Republican
friends from far and near, are also invited to be
present and participate.

He selects with good taste,, understands buying
cheap, and sells cheap also.

Breast Pin, that his establishment is the place
to buy it. See his new Advertisement,

all classes of our readers.

ty Everlt, Eckel, A Co., of Nashville, are
up to their eyes in business, and if they hada't
such a tremendous run for their goods, they'd be
up to their eyes in them, also. But though they
are now opening the second lot of Goods re
ceived this fall, they are sanguine they will
have to buy again before cold weather sets in.
This all results from good business management,
having good-looking wives, and Advertising in
the Republican.

quantity of goods he has sold this tail. He at
tributes his success to three causes, their good
ness, their cheapness, and having the handsom

from whom we never wait for the second invi
tation to take the oysters.
Sad. Our notice of the Democratic Chicken
presentation in Mechanic township, a few weeks
since, offended about the only democratic sub
criber we had left outside the borough limits,
and he, ordered hit paper discontinued. This it
a bad business, true enough. If the paper sur
vives, it will be by hard rubbing, and punctual
payment by what subscribers we have left.
JfThe letter from Iowa, published in an
other column, is from a valued friend, and should
have appeared months since, but was mislaid
and not found until a week or two ago. We
hope this apology for its not appearing earlier
will be satisfactory to the writer, and that our
readers will hear from him frequently through
the colums of the Republican.
Whilst our hand is in apologizing to Corres
pondents for our neglect of their favors, we
wish to say, that long since we received and
published a letter from another old and valued
friend in Iowa, and formerly a citizen of llil
lersburg, which was followed soon after by a
second letter, but this one was mislaid and has
sever come to hand. He will favor our readers
and a host of warm friends, by letting them
hear from him occasionally. , If he will do so,
we will promise to be more careful of his favors
We have a drawer full of home favors, which
in the press of politics we bad to lay aside, but
some of which may appear hereafter.
Which is Meaxest? In South Carolina the
rich political scoundrels have pens built near
the place of voting, and into these the poor
white men are driven, and from thence are driv
en to the polls. In Holmes county the poor
white men or poor white devils, have a marked
ticket placed into their hands, and then they
are dogged t the polls by a mean, sneaking set
of scoundrels, to see whether he votes it or not,
We think the man- who fears to vote his senti
ments, a poor sort of a man, and he who would
endeavor to prevent, by threats, with the nse of
whisky, or in .any other, way his doing so, a
worse scoundrel than Hull or Arnold. It is a
mean business, and no nan but a very mean
one will engage in it. . It was tried here last
Tuesday, and we envy not the party who will
stoop to such means to get votes, all they made
by it.
We do not believe that there are half dozen
democrats in the town of Millersburg that ap
prove of this practice of marking ticket, in or
der to compel men to vote contrary to their in
clinations. It was tried here ia 1844 and '46,
butwaseo unpopular that the very men who insti
gated and carried it out were compelled to quit
it, We say again it it a mean business, that no
man of honor, one who loves fair dealing, will
engage in. But there are dirty dogs to be found
everywhere willing to do the dirty Work of the
party. This honor, the democracy of Millers
burg bave left for one or two of their followtrs
to monopolize this campaign, ii ' '
For the Republican.
IOWA, 1860.
Mb. J Casket, Dear Sir, I Kins', thank you
for the occasional papers which yon have sent
me. They always contain something which I
am glad to see. . During Anno Domini 1853-6-7,
the western development of young America, was
baring a high old time. lie was a man of no
soul who did not -make tea thousand dollars a
year, and live at the rate of fifteen, mortgaging
his bocae for the balance. Uea -estate doubled
and trippled every year. Corner lots, and sites
lor residences, with grounds and ir noo, ran
opto dizzy heights. Newly started bankers and
merchants, with no capital but brat. A. and B.
exchanged personal notes for a few hundred
thousand dollars, and on this capital opened
banks. D. went East, where business men
think themselves sharp, and on the strength of
supposition land claims, Drought on awiiolesnie
store, which he hastened to sell for less than cost ,
or perhaps mortgaged for, money at fifty per
cent, and immediately reinvested in lands. Ev
ery body was rich ia lands real estate. Seven
teen river towns were "laid out'' not to be
buried, but built, which were soon to rival Lon
don or Jeddo. The rule in laying out a city,
was to go op and down the river as tar as the
eye could reach from the boat landing, and as
tar back into the country as farms were fenced.
that all the settlers might share ia the rise of
property in the city Una s, and pay city taxes.
Each ot these cities happened to be located on
the venerable Father of Waters, just where cer
tain (i. a. uncertain) routes of eastern commerce
and travel must center. I started one morning
for a walk in one of these towns, cot among ra
vines and thickets, was lort in the city, but not a
bouse could be seen. . Alter beating about for
some time, I got to a clear spot and saw a board
nailed on a bush, from which I found my local
ity, was at the corner of Sixty-ninth St, and
Paradise Avenue.
.. .Napoleon, or some other master butcher has
said, "nothing is so unlike a review as a battle."
I believe some of the un terrified in Wayne and
Holmes, from personal experience, can testily,
that nothing is so unlike getting drunk as be
coming sober. I believe there are a few here
who have a distinct conception of a difference
between giving a bond at fifty per cent, and
paying it when it is due. I hare ever beard
Eastern capitalists, expatiating on the difference
between lending money at handsome rates, and
getting it back. Young America having been
very high, woke up one morning and found him
self with a sick stomach, bad headache, feeling
caved in and of not much account, and has been
irritable and savage ever since. There is most
ly something forcible in the tlattg phrases of ev
ery community. ' There is something both strong
and picturesque in the word dangled, as used
nere. riuanciauy, it signiues oeing covered
with mortgages. A man will have his farm
mortgaged, his team and wagon and plow and
harrow, his hay and corn crib, his milch cow and
pig, the bed he sleeps on. the pot in which he
boils his potatoes, and the table off of which he
eats them, the grain when it begins to grow,
and the wheat when it is sown. Nay, 1 have
heard of the litter ot pigs not yet dropped, be
ing mortgaged, and the innocent calf which had
not yet seen the light having its head thittglcd
with a mortgage; and it is possible that the ver
itable records of some western counties, might
show deeds of trust, covering certain hens and
their issue, owned and possessed by the said
"A. B." From all this it appears a man may
have a roof without being particularly protected
against inclemencies of the weather.
. But 1 am not at all disheartened with this
country. It is a glorious land. Its produce
may be exhausted in paying ill advised debts,
for three or four years to come; but it will yet
be one of the healthiest and most productive of
the States. The harvest here is good. Some
time ago von might travel twelve miles, and for
six miles on either hand yon could not see an
acre but what was cither planted or sown. And
now go out anywhere and the country just as
as far as you can see is covered with shocks, or
dotted with stocks. The yield of grain will be
very large, and it prices are fair as they now
promise, there will be much increase of proper
ty. Nothing can exceed the pleasure of plow
ing these rich mellow soils, without hills or
rocks or stumps, unless it is pocketing the mo
ney for the crop. All yon will care to hear
about politics is, that Iowa is sure to Old A.
[From the Chicago Union.]
The West in Congress.
It will require about 125,000 persons
for each member of Congress under the
new census. As the population ot Ohio
is 2,560,000, she will get twenty members,
with a large unrepresented fraction. The
Stale will, therefore, lose one member.
The population of Michigan is 750,000,
which will give her six new members of
Congress, instead of four as at present,
Wisconsin will also get six; she now has
Iowa will be entitled to five members,
with a chance for a sixth.
Indiana will probably gain one member.
She has now eleven.
Illinois will be entitled to thirteen mem
bers, with a fair chance for fourteen. She
now has nice.
Minnesota, whose population is 180,000
will loose a member, and bave, for the
next ten years one, instead of two Con
gressmen , though to day she bas a popu
lation enough for two. The census is bas
ed on the number of inhabitants in tho
State on the first day of June. 1860.
Missouri will ram two members, bhe
has seven now, an will have nine here
Placing the Western Slates in tabular
form, the representation for the next ten
years, as compared with the last decade,

Speculations on Buchanan.
Confidence in the "Old Public Func
tionary" at the White House has so often
been misplaced, that a person who trusts
in him takes the chances. The people gen
erally have not the least confidence in his
integrity ; it is bard to say that of so old
a man, but it is .true. ,: "Occasional," the
Washington correspendent of the Philadel
phia Preu has the charity to believe Mr.
Buchanan dare rebuke disunion. He says :
With all James Buchanan s truckling to
the South, be is still a Northern man, and
he realizes that it would be impossible for
bim ever to return to Pennsylvania if he
did not make one effort to obliterate the
record of his transgressions, or if, with par
ricidal hand, he aided the .disunionists to
set fire to the temple of our liberties.
The voices of his greatest predecessors,
Washington and Jackson, speak to him
from their graves. He heart them in bis
sleep, and sees them in his dreams, and be
will no more disregard them than be would
dare to reject an appeal of the Deity.
' He will try to make a great virtue of a
great necessity, snd while turning bis back
upon the bold men whom ho has hereto
fore encouraged, he will look begignantly
for aid and and comfort from the section
and the interest he has so cruelly persecu
ted. Mark the prediction! James Bu
chanan will make a Union demonstration
(and probably before the meeting of Con-
fress) that will not only put fire-eaters in a
ostiie attitude to him, and save Mr. Lin
coln's administration from all trouble, but
that will be made with the expectation to
deprive the sew President of the credit of
adjusting the difficulty for himself. ' ,

An Ohio Drover Caught.
An Ohio drover named Seaton was clev
erly caught at Suspension Bridge the other
day. He had gone off witb a large sum of
money belonging to parties at Mansfield,
Ohio, which the officers were after. The
Buffalo Commercial says: - . . ,
"They left here on the morning train, at
9 o'clock, and on the arrival of the first
train at the Bridge from Rochester, made
a thorough search, but could not discover
their man. The Ohio officer wished tore
turn. Marvel objected, thinking he might
have waited over one train, and that the
chances were that he would arrive during
the day. And it was lucky he did so.
When the next train arrived, the officer
went through the cars, and coming out, in
formed Marvel that the man was uot-on
board. And he was not. But Marvel bad
kept his eyes open, aud had seen a person
very much resembling the man be "want
ed" jump from the after part of the train,
and entering the telegraph office. They
followed bim in, and found him sending a
dispatch to his wife instructing her to meet
him in Canada. It may be mentioned that
he had previously telegraphed her to meet
him at the Bridge; but, becoming fright
ened, as is supposed, had made up his mind
to leave the United States as speedily as
possible. He was taken into a room for
the purpose of being searched. About
this time his wife arrived from Buffalo, and
was also present. Seaton declared he had
only seven hundred dollars with him, which
he would give up. But officer Marvel
would hear of no compromise. The man
then said his wife had some money, which
had been given her by her father, and that,
with this, he might make up two thousand
dollars. But Marvel was obdurate, and in
sisted ou 'the bond.'
"It was finally agreed that if (he two
officers would leave the room, the whole
amount, a trifle short of three thousand
five hundred dollars, would be paid. They
were locked in the room, and Marvel, al
ternately placing bis eye and ear to the key
hole, saw the lady open her trunk, and
beard the chink of the 'bright and yellow,
and hard cold' metal, as she deliberately
counted out the twonty-two hundred dol
lars required to make up the needed amount.
Re-entering the room, the money was hand
ed over, and as they bad no criminal pro
cess against the man, he was allowed to go,
which advantage was immediately taken
advantage of and but a very short time
elapsed before the twain were in the ad
joining Province of Upper Canada."
Newspaper Enterprise.
The general agent of tho New York As
sociated Press was in our village, a few
days since, for the purpose of locating some
carrier pigeons which the associaiion are
about to employ for the purpose of inter
cepting the in-bound European steamers
off Fire Island. The same parties have
for many years past employed pigeons at
Halifax, N. S., and at Sandy Hook, whero
they have proved of great servive and have
doubtless contributed in no small degfee
to the association's world-wide reputation
for successful enterprise in outstripping all
their opponents whether editors, news
agents, or speculators in the early recep
tion of the European news. Prompted by
their past success, and inspirited, perhaps,
somewhat by the expressed determination
of a majority of the directors of the Amer
ican Telegraph Company to strangle the
Associated Press, and themselves control
all the news of the Old World and the
New, the association have, we understand,
decided to extend their pigeon express to
every point along the seaboard, from New
York to Cape Race, where it is possible to
bave the steamers intercepted.
Among the points that are thus to bo
covered in addition to Halifax, Sandy
Hook and Fire Island are, we understand,
Monlauk Point, Nantucket, Portland, Si.
John's, N. F., and Cape Race. The breed
of birds used by the associaiion is the cel
ebrated Antwerp carriers, which, when
properly trained and used, will, we are re
liably assured, fly at the rate of one mile
per minute, and unerringly, from the point
where they are thrown up, to their home.
,acu bird will carry, when properly adjust
ed to its legs, matter enough to make a
column of our paper, and our readers will
be gratified to learn that we bave made
arrangements by which we shall be ablo
to receive by the association s birds all
the interesting points of each steamer's
news within a few moments after tne steam
er arrives (in the day lime,) in the vicinily
of Fire Island. The birds have been lo
cated in excellent quarters, upon the pre
mises of Mr. B. C. bmitb, in our village,
and we understand Ibey are soon to be put
to work. The news will be sent to New
York by tho nearest telegraph station, or
by a relay of carriers, as circumstances may
require. Babylon. ( k. J.J Democrat.
XSTThe pickpockets of London and
Paris bave long enjoyed the reputation of
being the most adroit in Europe; but, if
we may believe tne . statement of a M.
Charles W , Stultgart can fully rival
those cities. That gentleman was walking
in the Aonigstrasse, looking at the shops,
when he was accosted by an obsequious
little man, who offered his services to show
him the lions of the capital, but the other
refused the offer. .The officious personage,
however, was not offended, but politely
asked him what o'clock it was. The other
answered that he did not know, as his
watch had stopped, and continued his walk
toward the Museum of Natural History,
which be entered. He bad not been there
many minutes before the same person came
up to him with the air of an old acquaint
ance and offered him a pinch of snuff.
This M. W declined, saying he was
no snuff-taker, and walked away ; but some
minutes after, having a presentiment of
something being wrong, he felt for his
snuff box, but instead of it found a scrap
of paper in bis pocket, on which was writ
ten, "As you are no snuff-laker, you do
not require a box.? He thought the log
ic of his unknown acquaintance ralher im
pertinent, and resolved to bear his loss like
a philosopher; but what was his amaze
ment, when a moment after, ho discovered
that hie watch had also disappeared, aud
in his other pocket was a note, in the fol
lowing words: "As your watch does not
tell the hour, it would be bettor at the
watchmaker's than in your pocket." It is
unnecessary to say that he never heard
any further tidings of the two articles.

Adder Sent in Letter to a
Faithless Wife.
The inmates' of the Pestof&ce were
thrown into a stale of general consterna
tion yesterday afternoon by a series of the
most vigorous and agonizing screams pro
ceeding from one of the hallways of the
Upon investigation, the source of the
outcry was found to be a colored woman,
who was wringing her hands and apparent
ly iu a slate bordering on insanity. The
bystanders questioned her as to be trou
bles, to which she made no response, but
pointed to a lively little green adder, which
was rapidly wriggling over the floor to
wards open air. - -
A general stampede ensued, but after a
long effort the "varmint" was properly se
cured and taken to the City Marshal's of
fice. It appears that the colored ladv, Mrs.
Philander Pierce, has a husband down in
Georgia. Their marital life has not been
one of the most pleasant or poetic, and
several letters of domestic objurgations
have passed between them. lesterday
Mrs. Pierce went to the Post Office, and
took out a little pasteboard box containing
a letler. As sbe was removing it, she was
removing it, sbe was slightly surprised at
hearing a hiss in the box, and almost in
stnnlly the green bead, glittering eyes and
barbed tongue of the aforesaid adder shot
up before her bewildered vision. She drop
ped the box like a hot coal, and hence the
screams. ,
The letter concluded with these post
scripts :
"Kiss this dear little pet for me, and
take it and sleep with it, for God's sake."
"P. S. They say that blue is true, and
let this bite you, and you will find out this
is a good little bedfellow.
That the diabolical Philander supposed
his wife was going to play Cleopatra with
the charming present be sent her, is not
for a moment to be entertained ; but rath
er that be concocted this unique style of
making way witb her, is probable. At
any rale his designs have failed miserably,

Death of on Eccentric Old Man.
The Coroner of New Orleans on Sun
day held an inquest on the body of David
Caledonia, found dead in a warehouse on
the side of the river. He was a Scotch
man a misanthropic old fellow, 75 years
of age, without any particular friends,
or relatives or defendants of any kind,
that any one knew of. He was, years ago,
a man of fine literary attainments, and
has' written excellent poems, which are
said to be still extar.t.
- Some years ago he ignored all sympathy
wilh the human race, and took to dogs.
Well known to be honest and trustworthy,
he was not denied the only place he want
ed, a corner in the warehouse, with the
privilege of keeping as many dogs as he
pleased. His dogs were his only apparent
comfort ; he ate with them, slept witb them.
No theif or incendiary, not even an honest
visitor in day-light, could enter the ware
house without the dogs giving the alarm,
and pultiug him to flight. The old man
took sick at last and died. Whether he
had any friend beyond his dogs, did not
appear. It was well known that he slept
with his dogs, they nestling and sleeping
around him as if they were his own chil
dren. The Coroner and his jury armed them
selves with sticks and stones and entered
the warehouse. In a distant corner, hud
dled together, they counted fifteen dogs,
curs mongrels of all colors and sizes, crouch
in together, silent and summissive. They
seemed to know that their old protecior
was dead, and that strangers had a right
to enter.
In another corner, where the old man
had so long slept like a dog with his dogs,
they found his corpse, foul with filth of his
dirt and last sickness. Upon and around
him were no less than fifteen puppies; two
of them dead, and the others whining
aud crawling over and about him. It was
plain that during his last illness the dogs
had slept with him, and that his deaih and
the interruption of strangers had compelled
not only the dogs but ibe sluts to desert
the body nnd tbe young puppies and crouch
in a distant corner of the warehouse. Tbe
Coroner and his jury were thoroughly
sickened ; the story of the old man and the
evidence before them enabled them to ren
der the verdict of death by dysentery ; aud
the Coroner, in ordering the burial of the
loalhsome remains of a man once bright,
talented, and honored, told the negro em
ployed that he might bury tbe two dead
puppies in the same coffin wilh the dead
old man, who bad withdrawn from human
ity and lived and died only with dogs.

In our telegraph column will be found
a remarkablh caae of forgery iu Indiana, in
which men of high business positions,
officers, in a Bank, are the culprits, and
have been successful in perpetrating one of
the greatest frauds in the history of our
country. Mr. and Mrs. Louglas it will
be seen, have had a narrow escape at Mont
gomery, but fortunately were but little in
jured. That "murder will oat" is clearly
proved in the announcement tbat tbe mur
derer of Vol. Davenport, at Kock Island,
fourteen years ago, has been arrested, If
we remember rightly, Col. D. was shot
through tbe window of his house, which
was situated on the Island in the Missis
sippi, botween Davenport and Rock Island
city. We believe CoL D. held an office
under government at that time.
We learn from the Eaton Register that
