Th Hue between the Pi Inoetnn mid Grent
Western. The promised race between the P.inceton and Great Western took place yesterday in Now Yrk Bay, and tt fur m the result is known, the Prince ton rameifTthe victor. The Tribune- .as th" Great Western came in eight, emerging from the Ent River ami slowly unrolling her canvass to ti e hrefr.e. Many a warm ami g -Microtia wind follow, edher.as she floated away. In a few minute the Piineelon shot out from the Hudson, showing n-i paddle wheels or pipe, ant moving a if carried a long hy a swift rurrcnt alone. Ac he p.asnd C.is tie Garden, she was greeted with a shout nnd no wonder; for in the clear aun light her beautiful mo. del and long tapef masts presented one of the finest specimens of ahip architecture we have ever reen. The Great Western apparently waited her ftp. preach, when they moved off together. The Prince, tun held her own, altogether beyond expectation ; for she had not a rag of canvas up, whilo the Great Western threw out sheet nftet sheet. On such a a'nooth sea, with the wind lair obenm, her canvoss alone must have taken her rive or six knots an hour. Thrv nrnreeded loffpthcr. without nrtv ceominrr ,1if. j l " - -J ' fercnec of speed, to the qunnrlinn, when the Pincc ton had ao closed with her that she was nearly a booin ; about half a rnilo below she was aboom, when she let fill her f jrclopsail and shot past and ahead in one mimre. The Princeton entered the w e l . i i 1 r .. iiuriuws wiui mrv anu niaiii;oijai:s, jiu anu loresan i set, and when she disappeared behind the point of Long Island, at twenty minutes past three, she was eight miles fiom the Buttery and a half mile ahead of the Western. As seen from the Battery, the Princeton wle dropping behind the western IJlutT cf the Narrows. This is triumph for the Princeton , triumph for Copt, Stockion and for the builders of his beautiful ship the Philadelphia shipwrights. Thk CmcuMSTAKcr.s attf.miiso th b Deatii or Senator Lis. The circumstances attending the death of Senator Linn have never, says the St. Louis New Ein, been correctly stated. Dr. L. was in good healih till the 2 -J inst., and on that day was busily engaged in prepa ing businc-s, inten ding to visit St. Louis naxt day. While searching for some papers in a trunk, he raised suddenly and nsked Mrs. Linn if his face was flushed, as he felt excei dingly dizzy , and (hi re seemed to be a g n rrol determination of blood to the head. The pain ful sensation, however, soon psssed off, and ho re. sifted the suggestion that he should be bled. Du ring the evening, and to a late hour at night, he was busily employed in correspondence and other matters, and when he retired he was indisposed to sleep. When Mrs. Linn rose in the morning, he icquestcd that he might not be disturb d, saying 'hat he would endeavor to sleep an hour or two. He soon fell into a slumber, apparently gentle and refreshing. When visited two or three times he was still found in this state, and there was no dis position to disturb him. It was not until near 12 o'clock oflho Sd that Mrs. Linn approached his bedside to awaken him. Sho all. mpted to do so but in vain. Calmly and placidly without a sigh, or tho change of a sirgls feature in his benevolent countenance had life passed away. Three or four hours afterwards there was a profuse Herd'n from i the mouth and nostrils. AreniKMT I tii k Mim, Ann Loss oe I.irr.

The Leeds Mercury states that a Baptist Ministtr from England, Dr. Iloby, from Birmingham, and r Baptibt minister from Hamburg, Mr. Oucken, have been fxpellcd from Copenhagen, solely because they were Baptists. They ar rivtd in Copenhagen on a festival visit to their brtthern, the former having a pasfport from the British Charg d'Aflairrsat Hamburg. Mr. Oucken was imprisoned, and both were expel led from the city hy the same packet in which they had arrived. The particulars of this af fair have been laid by Dr. Iloby beforo the Bri tish Envoy, of Copenhagen. The Antarctic Reoion. Captain Ross of the British Exploring Expedition, in the Polar Seas, veered out more thin 0,000 fathoms (or 3ti,UU0 feet, nearly Feven miles) o! rope, yet could find no bottom at that great depth. The Expedition discovered a volcano in these deso hte regions, of such surpassing power an J bril liancy, that ita light was 6een at tho distance of one bundled and thirty miles. Snrrs Tilt Fifth. Whenyixtus the Fifth aspired to the Popedom, lie counterfeited old age for fifteen years. During the conclave assem bled to elect a new Pope, he leaned upon a crutch and appeared, remarkably infirm.

(fj1 We have received the second number of the "Democratic Champion," a new piper establish ed al Harri-burg, to support the claims of Flux cm R. SiiruK ni a candidate for Governor, next fill. The contest has now settled down, wo think, by c mmon consent, between Mr. Sih-k and the Hon. IltNBt A. Mrnr.r.NBcuo. In this county Mr. Muhlenburg has ulways been highly popular. In 1S35 he received, probably, a stronger support in this county, in proportion to its voters, than any other county in the state, if we except old Beik. Slinmokin Anthracite Furnace. Wcare pleased to state that the Shamokin An thracito Furnace has again been put into blast, after a suspension of IS months. The Furnace, we un derstand, has been leased by two practical lion Masters from New York. The Iron produced at this furnace is of a very superior quality. We should like to see cast iron rails made at this furnace. The experiment at least, might be tried with but little expense on our rail road. fXj" The Lycoming Gazette is informed that our Senator, Jr.. C. Hortox, cannot consent to lo cate himself in the everlasting state of Williamsport. He thinks thero are too many great men there al ready, and if he should get there they would be en tirely "too thick to thrive." (fj- The Rev'd. Mr. Hi.ssER.of the Methodist Church at Orwigsburg, had both his legs broken a few weeks since, in Jackson township, in this coun ty, by being thrown out of a carriage, in which were three other clergymen with him, on (heir way to the Ohio Conference. Mr. Hesser was taken to the house of Mr. Zaitman, and from thence home, and has, we have -ince learned, died from his wounds. djr Sales or Stocks.

A large amount of Turnpike stock wn put up, but as no bids ad high as 1 were oll'ored, ikey weio not sold. We are glad to see Mr. Cameron in terested in our railroad. Ataman of capital and enterprise, he has the means of doing much for the road. Ltwis Fabsit, the young student who stabbed Trofessor Dwight, of Vale College, was arrested and tsken before Recorder Vaux at Phila delphia, and after hearing, committed. A llulntis Ctirpu was then sued out, and he was taken before Judge King and admitted to bail in $5,000. Great indignation was expressed at the small amount of bail required. Fusxit was afterwards urrea'ed on a requisition of the Governor of Connecticut.

The democratic Com missioners have a majority of about 14,000. Honest John, of the Milton Ledger, yelps like a whipped spaniel at our exposure of his Mun chausen sloiies about the embankment, cVc. The bist commentary, however, in support of our re. marks, is the f.ict that ono of Mr. Forsythe' most active friends in this place was highly inJignuut at John, having, as he said, spoiled an excellent c lectior.eeriug story by his outrageously txir.iva- gant calculations. It is your misfoituuo, not your fault, John, that you must always be either in the clouds, or in a ditch! For your le.iceand com. fort we would advise you, hen after, to take a me dium court?. That you would find great difficulty in keeping in it, we are aware, for Cowper s iys : "To find the medium asks some share of wit, And therefore 'tis a mark fools never hit." But still, perseverance and patience may be the means of accomplishing much, even in a ca-e like yuurs, although an entire cure should be found im possible. d" The vote at the last election wire, in many places, unusua'ly clo.-e, more so than at any pre. viou diction that we recollect of.

In this district Fa ic it's majority is only 849.

The following table showing the tote of 1840 as compared with the vote of 1843, for member of Congress In this district, will enable our readers lo see by what means the whigs succeeded in getting a majority in this county : 1S40. 1813.

At the late election they gave a majority of 332 against him, m iking a dilfereticc of 4 10 votes in favor of Fiick. It will a'so be seen that in the townships on this si lo of the river, Gen. Fiiick received but 8i more votes than Mr. Merrill did in 1840, when Sxinru's majority in the county was 778. This proves most conchi.ivrlv the de. fection in tho Forks among the fiicnds of Mr. For suhe. Northumberland and Po;nt, in 1S40, gave Mr. Sxtokr a mnj.-rity of 101 votes. At the Inle election, thisr townships gave a nvjorily of 3 votes in favor of Gen. Fiiick. Now, as Mr, Foray the held almost absolute sway in thce two townships, and received neaily nil the votes, it seems singular that Mr. Smthi.ii should losu 104 vote if it w is not cau-ed by the Foylhc party. Mr. Briglit's friends certainly cannot be blamed, inasmuch as ha received I ut 49 votes in these townships, which is b ss than half the amount of Mr. SxTtir.n's loss. Therefore, if all Mr. Brian's friends had voted foi Frick, there would still be 55 votes to account for by the Forsythe party. But it is used ss to multi ply words when thii gs are so self-evident. Any one who cannot sec that the Forsythe parly had entered into a league against Mr. Snyder, must be blind, indeed. fj" At the New York Fair there was exhibited an ingenious Machine, called Hckt's Maciuxk for introducing scrrw rivets into boot and shoe soles. It is 1 ne of the uio t ingenious uriiclct al the Fair, and attracts universal attention.
