JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN StroudsbnrS, Pa. Wov. 27, 1810. Terms, $2,00 in advance: $2.25. naif rearly ; and $2,50 if not jiaul bcfoic the end of the year. We observe that the question " who shall be our next Governor" is beginning to be cxten Mwly agitated in the political papers of both parties. From present appearances we judge, that David R. Porter in spite of the denuncia tions cast upon him by the Radical portion of the Van Bunm party, for bis conservative course relative to the Banking question, will again be nominated for re-election, and the disaffected be compelled to give in their adhesion, through fear of another signal defeat. By the Whigs, now constituting a majority of the people, several able and prominent men have been named, for the most part resident of the West, to which portion of the Keystone Stale we are mainly indebted for our late glo rious triumph among them are Harmar Den ny of Allegheny and Th: M. T. McKehnan of Washington Counties. In the neighbouring counties of Berks and Northampton, our con temporaries propose with zeal the nomination of Judge Banks of Reading and formerly of Mercer county, which district he very ably re presented in Congress for several terms. Thc recent elei lions prove beyond a doubt our abil ity to elect a Chief Magistrate of the Common wealth, provided we are thoroughly united arrd we therefore with confidence anticipate a suc cessful isssiie, on the part of the Whigs at the next Governor's election. The Governor has issued his proclamation declaring, that the electoral ticket headed Jo seph Rimer and John Andrew Shulze, has re ceived a majority of votes throughout the State, the official returns are in- hnother column. Our exchange papers from all quarters are filled with glowing descriptions of festivals and celebrations in honor of the election of the Re form candidates. From the Northampton Whig, we take a ppinted account of the late Jubilee at Easlon. A Western merchant advertises "Ladies 0 K. Stock-ings," and "Gentlemen's Democratic Republican Suspenders" alsorn small quanti ty of "Prime Huge Paw Bed-cord," cheap for cash! Wisdom. Jefferson has said, than an "abso lute acquiescence in the decision of the majori ty, is the vita! principle of republics from which there is no appeal but to force, the vital princi ple and immediate parent of despotisms." More liliytncs. TheN. Y. Signal say:' We had hoped that the Harrison bards would cease rhyming now that "Tippecanoe and Ty ler too" liHve been elected. But their Ivric frenzv does not seem to have abated. The fol lowing is their latest effusion: "Martin Van Buren must inarch on the after noon of the 4th of March 1841, back to Kiuder iiook singing as he goes They called me a "Magician!" When friends and fortune smiled, But now 'tis "little Matty" Since I'm misfortune's child!"' O: K. The N. 0. Picayune says : " The ladies, God bless them, have decided that 0. K. means Only Kissing, nothing else in the word." 2avis and'Enchauan, AT THEIR HOMES, Worcester count v, Mass., where honest John Davis resides,, has given 4500 majority FOR I1IM. Jancajstcr comity, Pa. where James Buchanan, the ten cent gentleman resides, has given 42c0 AGAINST ULL "Decided Whigs of long-stak-dixg." In copying the statement of the New York Com mercial, that a number of custom house officers in that city suddenly find themselves "decided Whigs of long standing," the Philadelphia U. S. Gazette says: Wo have heard of no mira cle of that kind in this citv: but we have learn ed that a good many persons since the election recollect that they have always been warm and active Harrisor. men, though others do not ro- inemlier a much of them. A beautiful thing js that sun flower it always turns towards the Source of heat and light. The Albany Argus speaking of the result of the great contest,, character ises it as "the general defeat of the American Democracy " Pray what is the Democracy? Have the people been defeating, themselves?. Or, in this happy country, is it the office-luti-ders only, who compose the Democ racy? Give us a definition, sweet sirs! jV. Y. Spectator.

Kentucky's sons of fire. Ho! Bay State men: Ho land of Pcnn! Ho sons of 'the Empire'! Why muster ye I What name is on your tongue I The Warrior's name, the Statesniaus fame, the veteran Harri son." Never have our people spent a more joyous, happy day than they did at the Jubilee on Sa turday. One confirmed delighted smile seemed lo play on the countenances of every democrat ic Whig from the time Amos Baby Waker' caused him to leep from his pillow till the day was spent and gone. On Friday evening pre vious, according to the proposed arrangements, bright bonfires fit up every hill around, and the cannon kept a constant roar. The large four story Iloiel of Mrs. White was splendidly il luminated. In the middle was a line transpa rency of the General on his favorite White charger, encouraging on his men to battle. The Cabin was also lighted up with transparencies. A fine procession of several hundred called Oid Tips Committee' paraded by torch-light under the direction of that active and efiicient Chief Maishal, Joseph Bamet. The whole evening was spent in social merriment and sport. J he cannon was tired without intHr intssion, (except to load) during the whole night and next day. Early in the morning the peo ple began to flock in from the country. Near ly the whole of the Log. Cabin lot had been covered ami six rows of tables 100 feet long prepared. To this spot the good things pro vided by the committee, or given by the patri otic Whig Ladies of our Borough and neigh borhood, than whom no Iovlier live, were seen going, turkies and chickens, with ribbands and appropriate mottoes, luscious pies of every kind, size and shape, some decorated with Log Cabins, some with cider barrel's, others figured off with Tip and Ty, O K and such pithy sen tences. The table was set at about 1 1 o'clock, and it was admitted that a more bountiful, well set table could not well be. There were no ardent spirits- on the ground but in its room plenty of good cider, that all preferred. The vast multitude were formed itv order Vy Chief .Marshall Barnet a little after 11 r'Jock and preceded by the Easton Band, marched through our principal streets for about an hour, when they returned to the Cabin and as many as could took seats at the tables. One thous and and sir plates were set, and when we say that not more than half could get seats, we can give a better idea' of the numbers present than m any other" way. The sight of this Yast de lighted dinner party all with the best humor possible, making vigorous onset upon the good viands spread before them, was a pleasing sight such ol the kind, as we neer before witnessed. After thy had satisfied themselves, a fresh supply of provisions appeared arid their places were rilled by others until all had partaken. Two rows of tables were also set for the ladies present, from the country, who- also joined in the feast: After the clorh was removed the meeting was organized by the appointment of Hon. SAMUEL YOKE, President. And a numbet of Vice Presidents-. After which toast were given interspersed with singing and recitation. The parly broke tip early in the afternoon and returned peacea bly and quietly to their homes delighted with tile-great public festival in which they had par ticipated; returned loo, in full confidence of the restoration-of our beloved Republic to i s wont ed state of prosperity,, freedom ano happiness under tha gallant, well trained Leader, whem a free people had called to preside over them, and prostrate tho corrupt, extravagant dema gogues who had betrayed the trusts- committed to them and become the tyrants rather than the servant of the people. Ths Committee or arrangements deserve high thanks for the manner in which they dis charged their duties. Of the Ladies who so kindly and bountifully assisted and aided, by their advice, donations and services, what shall we say. We scarce kuo-w words that will c,onvey the thunkful feel rngs of the Democratic Whigs. To the mar ried, w wish happy homes, and to the unmar ried kind and affectionate husbands of the right stamp. God grant you Ladies, all the good we printers dare wish. In thenight our opponents had a procesion. They mounted a Durhamboat upon wheels, lighted it up well with tar barrels and manned it with a sturdy looking crew. They then with a large force in procession lighted by torches, drew it along, bound as they said for Salt Riv er. We wish them a pleasant journey and good anchorage. It is a quiet region having many comforts as we know. Mr. Benton. A SCENE IN AN ARTIST'S STUDIO. Of all the humbugs in this humbug-p-inp; age Thomas H. Benton is unj questionably the most pompous and vain. Those who have been in the habit of attending the sittings of the Senate will remember numberless instances of his conceit and egotism. But the following un exaggerated de scription, by an eye-witness, of a scene which occurred some time ap;o, in an artist's studio in this city, gives a peculiarly vivid and faithful view of the height breadth, and depth of the Missouri Humb upper's soul! It is from the Washington Correspondence of the Baltimore Patriot. Mr. Benton had his portrait taken by the artist, who, at the time in question was bus ily engaged in finishing a likeness of Mr. Van Buren: Enter Mr. Benton. '""Good morn ing, sir! good morning, sir." (The Senator from Missouri, like Justice Shallow, is fond of iteration.) "Have you my portrait? Have you my por trait?' The polite foreigner, all smiles and graces, dropped his pencil, and has tened to present to the great Colonel the image of himself. The Colonel gazed upon it with the highest satis faction. Hazlitt it is, who savs there is a natural desire in the mind of man to have one's likeness multiplied. The Colonel evidently felt it. "Admira ble! excellent!" he exclaimed. After & pause h added, "You must have it lithographed! And my friends have suggested a motto, which I wish you to have placed below the picture in the lithograph copies. It is shorty sir a single sentence, sir. Here it is:" And he forthwith produced a copy of the Globe. "It is from the great ex punging speech mi great expunging speech--you have heard of it sir? a speech, sir, which will be read every where, not only in this country, but in Europe yes, sir in Europe, sir! Here is the sentence, sir a single sentence." He read, with the air of BombastesFurioso, the magical words "Solitary and alone, and amid the taunts and sneers of my op ponents, i have set this ball in MOTION." "There, sir," he continued, "a few words only but place them at the bottom of your picture, and you sell thousands and tens of thousands in the western country!" The artist was dissolved in grati tude he poured out his thanks in the cordial and glowing expressions of his country. They swelled the vanity of the great projector of the expunging farce and nothing would do but he must split the ears of the polite for eigner with paragraph after paragraph of his prosy and pointless twaddle. Certes, he did' read more than a col umn and a half of the Globe, pointing out the beauties that lay couched in the language or ideas, and comment ing as he went along thus: "fine idea that, sir!" "an admirable image that, sir!" And after a paragragh or two of inimitable absurdity, ne would cry, "ah, sir, there are some noble plunges!" (not fliqTits, but plunges! Good that, is it not, and most appropriate? Let us hereafter dignify the efforts of our young orators by calling them true Bentonian plunges.) "Ah, sir. there arc some noble plunges, and the whole speed is in the same style. Many of my speeches are argumentative and demonstrative, but this is a sort ol winding, up more embellishment here it is a peroration it is all pe roration, sir!" The enthusiastic artist's eves kin died as he spoke. As the Colonel poured out his magniloquence, he would exclaim, "ah! very fine! grand!"' &c &,c. Jle evidently considered his fortune made. - It was a lucky stroke of the pencil that made the likeness of a man who "solitary and alone, has set a ball in motion!" whose "great expunging speech will be read every where in Europe and America" whose mottoed image will be sold by tens of thousands in the western country and whose Senatorial efforts are all plunges and peroration School Rooms. The. Charleston Courier has the following extracts fiom a letter of Dr. Samuel B. Wood warn, Superintendent of the S'tiHe Lunatic Hospital, at Worcester, Mass., to the Secretary of the Hoard of Education, of said State, in reply to some queries respecting the construction of School Rooms : " First, as to the ill effects of high and nar row benches, and seats without backs. High-and narrow seats are not only extreme ly uncomfortable for the young scholar, tend ing constantly to make him restless and noisy, disturbing his temper and preventing his atten tion to the books, but they also have a direct tendency tcr produce deformity of the limbs. If the scat is too high the feet cannot reach the floor; the consequence is, that the limbs are suspended on the centre of the thigh. Now, as the limbs of children are pliable or flexible, thry arc easily made to grow out of shape, and become crooked bv such an awkward and unnatural position. Sests without backs have an equally unfa vorable influence upon Ihe spinal column. If no ret is afforded the backs of children while seated, they necessarily assume a bent and crooked position; such a position often assumed, or long continued, tends to that deformity, which has become extremely common with children of modern limes, and leads to diseases of the spine in innumerable instances.
