To all Concerned.
We would call the attention of some'of our
subscribers, and especially certain Post Mas
ters, to the following reasonable and well set
tled rules of Law in relation to publishers, to
-the patrons of newspapers.
THE LAW OF NKWSPAPERS.
.1. Subscribers who do not gie express no
tice to the contrary, are considered as wishing
to continue their subscriptions.
2. If subscribers order the discontinuance of
their papers, the publishers may coutintio to
send them till all arrearages are paid.
3. If subscribers neglecf or refuse to take
their papers from the officers to which they are
directed, they are held responsible till they
hare settled their bill, and ordered their papers
4. If subscribers remove to other places with--uut
informing the publishers, and their paper is
sent to the former direction, they are held re
sponsible. 5. The cotir! hare decided that refusing to
'take a newspaper or periodical from the olfice,
or removing and leaving it uncalled for, is "pri
:ma facie" evidence of intentional fraud.
The following Stales hare already held their
'elections for the choice of Presidential Elec
Jors. Pennsylvania and Ohio, November 1st.
New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Connecticut,
Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia,
Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Missis
sippi, Arkansas, and Michigan, November 4lh.
J"Jew York, Louisiana and Tennessee, Novem
ber 5th. New Jersey, November 5th and 6ih.
"The following States have not yet voted, but
-will hold their elections on the days designa
ted. Maine, Massachusetts, and Alabama, No
vember 1 lh. Vermont and Delaware, Novem
ber 12th. In South Carolina, the Legislature
will choose the Electors on the lot of Decem
'The -official vote for Electors in this County
ib Polk 1806, C"lay 414, majority for Polk 1392.
By this it will beeen, that although the Whig
vote has been increased, still the -loco foco ma
jority is 168 greater than it was at the Govern
or's Election. Our friends are any thing but
.satisfied with the manner in which the locos
out1 their majority, particularly in several of
ihe-townships, and aje convinced that if a fair
chance had been shown them, ihe majority
would have been at least 100 less. The man
"ner in which the election was conducted in
Stroud, and one or two other townships, was a
burlesque upon popular suffrage. In several
places, too, we are told there were more tickets
in the boxes than names upon the lists of vo
ters. Unless ihese evils are remedied for the
fuiure, there will be but little use in holdino
elections. We may as well let them lake as
much majority as they ask for, without going
through the forms of ballotting.
From present appearances the struggle for
the Presidency will be very close, and the sue
cess of either candidate will depend upon the
vote of New York, where the election was held
on Tuesday. It is possible that .Mr. Clay may,
;if be iias carried Virginia, receive a sufficient
number of Electoral votes to elect htm, wiihout
iNew York but this is very doubtful. All will
therefore look with intense anxiety for the re
turns from New York, and Virginia. Unless
she eleciion should beiexpectedly close, we
will be able to tell in our next who has-been the
' The South.
Our friends in tbSouth have been actively
engaged in endeavoring to secure the triumph
.of the Whig cause. They spoke confidently
f carrying Georgia, Worth Carolina, Tennes
ee, Louisiana and Mississippi. W hope they
have done so.
Ourfrienils in Indiana boldly proclaim their
ability to give tha, State trjMr. Clay, by 3 sure
majority ranging ftora fire To m. ijwwsaad.
The Presidential Election in this State, look
place on Friday last, and was contested with
uncommon spirit by both the great political par
ties of the day. The vole of the whole State
has not yet been received; but from the returns
(hat are in, no doubt remains that the locos have
carried it by about five thousand majority. The
Whigs did their duty manfully. They have
increased their vote in every county heard from,
over that given to Gen. Markle on the 8ih' ult.
Our defeat is entirely owing to the foreign vote,
which went against us nearly unanimously.
On the other hand, the vote of tho Native Amer
ican Parly, was divided between the two can
didates. Had their whole vote been cast for
Mr. Clay, as we had a right to expect it would,
it would have secured us the Slate. As it is
we have lost it, through the united vote of the
locos, naturalized foreigners, abolitionists, and
a portion of the Native Americans. Here are
the returns as far as received :

The official vote in this County has not yet
been received, but we are informed that Polk's
majority is about 617, an increase of 116 over
Shunk's majority. We learn that at least one
hundred voters, nearly all locos, were absent
down the Delaware with lumber, on eleciion
day, and yet we have this large increase on us.
We wonder if there was no pipe-laying going
on. Can't some of our Pike county friends in

The Empire State Safe.
Notwithstanding the immense number of for
eigners who have been naturalized and ihe
strenuous exertions used,and allowing of some
800 sailors and marines to vote, the result, as
far as ascertained is favorable for the Whigs.
The locos carried .the city and county of New
York by the lean majority of 1700 We have
heard from Kings, Queens, Westchester, Suf
folk, and most of the River counties, which

Maryland comes to the contest most nobly
Clay's majority in this stale is over 2,000. Not
withstanding the damper that the result of the

Murd3ji by a Bot. The Grand Jury of this
couniy, yesterday found a true bill against n
boy named Sylvester Carver, who is not quite
13 years of age. It appears this lad deliber
ately shot another lad at Sharpsburgh, some six
miles distant, the other day with a pistol. It is
a very singular case, as we have understood
the particulars, which we refrain from stating
as the irial is soon to take place. We do not
remember lo have heard a like transaction.

We learn from the Newark'Daily Advertiser,
that the Morris Canal was sold ai public auc
tion in that city, on Wednesday a week, by Ira
C. Whitehead, Master in Chancery, under
degree of the Court of Chancery iu this State,
at the suit of Wilhem Willink, Jr., representing
the holders of the original Holland Loan. It
was struck off to Asa Whitehead, John J. Bry
ant, and Benjamin Williamson, Esqrs., all of
Essex county, for one million of dollars. It is
understood that a new company has been formed
to revive, enlarge and proscuie the work, so that
the trade from the coal regions of Pennsylva
nia be direct to New-York rather than the cir
cuitous route of Philadelphia.
As thisis the season for Buckwheat cakes,
the following receipt will be valuable to those
who are fond of them. A friend, who has tried
the experiment, says it makes decidedly belter
cakes, with half the trouble necessary in the
usual mode of raising them with yeasi :
To three pints of buckwheat flour, mixed in
to a batter, add one teaspoonful of carbonate of
soda, dissolved in water, add one ditto of tar
taric acid, dissolved in like manner first ap
ply the carbonate, stir the batter well, and then
put in the acid thus ihe use of yeast is entire
ly superseded, and cakes "as light as a feather"
are insured. One great advantage is that the
baiter is ready for baking as soon as it is made.
The jETilleriSes in New Hampshire.
We learn from the Boston Post, that ike
Miller excitement is doing its wost among the
people of the lower part of New Hampshire.
In Kingston, Mr. A. N. Brown, publisher and
printer, has become entirely insane. His bro
ther, carried away by the delusion, has given
up every tning like worK, believing it to be
clinging to this world's things. A few days
since he was about hauling a load of corn from
his fields, when, seized suddenly with the above
idea, he fell upon his knees and prayed to God
to direct him how to act whether lo carry the
corn to the barn or to leave it in the field the
decision was in favor of the latter course, and
it was accordingly dropped for the benefit of
the cattle. Ihe believers of tbe pernicious
doctrine in that section, generally, have almost
entirely neglected to provide for future, wants
apples ate rotting on the trees, and crops in
he fields remain uuharvested. In Newington,
ikewise, the fanaticism has made alarming pro
gress. Wo nave yet to learn how jar the ex
piration of the Miller "chronology" goes towards
restoring these deluded people to their reason.

One evening last week, in the -MillprjIe
Church, corner of Christie and Delaucy streel3
New York, Mr. Storrs publicly recanted hj,
egregrious folly and madness in the matter 0f
the second advent. He said, what indeed
others beside his congregation had alreadr
found out, he was deceived as to the day of ih'e
second advent. He said he had been led astrav
by excitement and deceived by :iksmerisji"j
and now most penitently acknowledged bis
manifold sins and wickedness. He now ex
horted them lo slick io work, &c. Himes next
took his stand in the confessional, and foroe.
ting that he had been both the deceived ami
deceiver, raicd the people pretty harshly fUf
their infatuation, and urged them all to g
home and to work, and stepped down from'thtt
rostrum. Siorrs has also acknowledged Ihj
error in the Midnight Cry.
ITIillerism vs. Co in in on Sense.
Among the many foolish freaks of Millerisrn
one, circumstance is related as having occurred
in this city, on the 23d, which resulted in
conversion of al least one sister from Millerisn,
to common sense. The story runs thus : Ths
weak sisier, with her weaker spouse, had re
paired to the graveyard, near Munjoy, to awa:
ihe looked for moment; and while vvaitiii", ih
fond husband proposed io his wife, (it seem
she was a second wife. to assist him in ditir,.
terring ihe body of his dear first wife, that .te
too might accompany them upwards. The
wile stared, and then pouting her lips at hi
says "No! if you want your old wife to
with you, take her and be hanged; I won't jr.,
with her, that I won't." Whether he went i
digging or noi, report saith not ; but the wav
she dug for home, was a caution to all slow lo
comotives, who were luckless enough to be u
Ihe pave as she bustled by. The moral of th.i
story we suppose to be this : If these geinlr-
men want to be in peace, either goin or slav
ing, they had betler be contented with wis
Wild Pigeons. For two morning

ITInrder of Joe Smith.
The Court ol Quincy, Illinois, has commerc
ed the investigation ol the murder of the .Mor
mon leader and his companions. There la m
little excitement on account of nn encampment
of Mornions within a few miles of Carthage.
The encampment is from 150 to 200 strong
and the men are said to be armed. The Car
thagenians are in the dark as to the object of
ihe encampment, but if Gov. Ford were to or
der out 25 or 30,000 men, armed and equipped,,
he could probably bring about an explanation
The Mormons say they are there by the author
ity of ihe Governor. Near ihe Mormon en
campment is a force of Indians, and their pur
pose is also unknown. We suppose a littltt
soap and water would take most uf the Indian
off of them.
S.vow. In Franklin, Venango comity, Fa
there was snow to the depth of two or three
inches, on Sunday morning, Sept. 29. The

broken down and others injured. Crops of
buckwheat were prostrated.
The practice of shearing lambs is decme!
one of iiuquelionable utility by most fanner;
The following, from the Yankee Farmer ot
1840, contains some useful suggestions: TV
shearing of lambs in this country is bui hiU
practised, though the results of experiments ap- jfa
pear to be favorable. It is reasonable to .'op
pose that the wool wiU grow the faster after tit
lamb is shorn. In culling the beard frequently
its growih will bo promoted, and it is the satin
with wool. With the strong reasons and fa
vorable result in shearing lambs we sliouK
think it advisable for farmers tn pursue the
practice, or at least attend to it sufficiently "
learn the effect.
Let a numbor of lambs of equal size, ami
with fleeces of equal quality, be selected l"C
experiment; then shear one half the number
and weigh the fleeces. Next year weigh tli"
fleeces of the whole lot, and see what s tM
difference, if any, in ihe weight and quality of
wool, between those that wore shorn and ih j
that were not. Shearing one half of a 1-tmW j
and weighing the half fleece, and again thu 'x'1
half fleeces another year is a good way to juls
of the utility or inutility of this method. r
hope ibat many of our readers will make ex !
periments on this subject and let tin know o
result. If shearing lumbs be profitable, then
hiany fads ought to be deduced in favor, v
order in encourage its general mumlm t"'U
and if it is a bad practice it ought to 1h km,Mrlt
and the bad effects clearly asceriaiued and g'v"
en lo the public.
The author of the Practical Fanner says tint
he has known some persons in that State (Netf
York) shear their lambs ; but he had never u,v
it himself; he remarks that on general pritici j
pies he thinks it a dangerous praciie and vfO j
problematical whether under the most Uvorabld
circumstances it can be profitable. He 5ives !
no reasons, and slates no facta to Mipport
shnuld bo shorn
the first year.
