What is a Fop? A Mr. Stark in a lecture
before the Young Men's Association of Troy,
N. x. thus defines a fop: "The fop is a com
plete specimen of an outside philosopher. He
is one third collar, one sixth patent leather, one
fourth walking stick and the rest kid gloves and
hair. As to his remote ancestry there is some
doubt, but it is now pretty well settled that he
is the son of a tailor's goose. He becomes ec
static at the smell of new cloth. He is some
what nervous, and to dream of tailors bills giv
es him the night mare By his air. one would
judge he had been dipped like Achilles; but
it is evident that the goddess must have held
him by the bead instead of the heels.
Nevertheless such men are useful. If there
were no tadpoles there would be no frogs.
They are not so entirely to blame for being
devoted to externals. Paste diamonds must
have a splendid setting to make them sell.
Only it does seem a waste of material, to put
five dollars worth ot beaver on to nve cents
worth of brains."
Mr. J. Bayard Taylor of New York who is
travelling in Africa, was on the 12th January
at Khaatourn, the chief city of Sennar, and lo
cated at the confluence of the White and Blue
Nile, about half way between Cairo and the
Equator. He had proved quite popular with
the sable governor of the place, in consequence
of his being the first American who had ever
penetrated so far towards Central Africa, hav
ing been presented with a magnificent horse,
entertained at a grand banquet, and Honored
with a nightly guard around his tent He had
also been the guest of a great princess of Sen
nar. daughter of the late monarch. Her e-
bon royalty had feasted him and his ftiends
on a sheep roasted whole and paid tnera otn
er high bred civilities peculiar to the aristocra
cy ofEthiopa. Mr. Taylor was undecieed
whether to return to Cariro, or press forward
to the eauator and sources of tbe Nile. A
Catholie missionary, who was bound to the lat
ter place, wished him to continue the journey
in company. His health, he writes, was nev

Ths Question Skttlkd. The question
that vexed question which is setting nearly
tbe whole Locofoeo party crazy, is now settled
as to who shall be the Locofoeo nominee for
the Presidency. Lola Montez, the Countess
ot Landsfeldt, and bosom friend ot the "good
eld King" of Bavaria, has "no hesitation in
saying, and she says it boldly," that the old
foggy and Federalist Buchanan, in the same
man that should be nominated. Of course he

regret in the matter is. that she is not qualified
to record a vote iu his favor. hat a pity.

Corporation Election.
This election resulted adversely to "the
Regularly nominated Democratic ticket."
Our "Democratic" friends held a caucus on
Saturday, previous to the election, and put in
nomination a ticket, which was every way sat
isfactory to those who made the nominations.
The Editor of the Democrat was nominated
for Mayor, with men of like known politics
for Recorder and Councilmen.
The majority of these nominations, espec
ially that fur Mayor, gave great dissatisfaction
to quite a number of leading Democrats, who,
in connection with the Whigs, placed in nom
ination an independent ticket, retaining the
Democratic nominee for Recorder, and one of
the Councilmen, which was elected by a hand
some majority, ranging from 6 to 26 :
The following is the ticket elected.
Mayor B. J. Bartlett 7 maj.
Recorder T. P. Finefrock, on both tickets.
C. Doncyson, both tickets.
Wm. Herbster. 6 mai.
Councilmen f Isaac Sharp. 24 mai.
O. L. Nims, 23 maj.
J. F. R. Sebring, 28 maj."
The above ticket is composed of good men.
and will make efficient officers.

The Fremont Band.
On last Wednesday evening, we were very
agreeably surprised to hear, directly under
our window, some most excellent music, by
the Fremont Band, who had taken the occas
ion to Serenade their friends in different parts
of the town. This band is composed of a
number ofonr most enterprising citizens, prin
cipally young men, and have been associated
together about two months. They are under
the instruction of our esteemed fellow citizen,
Mr. John Sendlebach, who is a musician of
more than ordinary abilities, and tha progress
this band has made under his supervision,
shews that he has the happy faculty of im
parting instruction - to others. Their music
was executed with much skill, and fully equal
ed that of much older bands. With a little
more practice, Fremont will have a band not
surpassed in the State. Theii instruments
are entirely new, and of the most approved
and costly quality. The company deserve the
thanks of our citizens for the energy and per
severence it has evinced in this matter. It
has our thanks, for tbe entertainment given
us on Wednesday evening last -..
