FOR GOVERNOR, WILLIAM BIGLER. I Subject to the decision of the Democratic Convention. " The Whigs it willbe observed, are again 'laid out ' in the State at large somewhat emphatically, with our own Senatorial District counting in to flatten them the more effectually. We regret all this, as a matter of course; and yet we don't care much. The tax-payers of our brave old tax-ridden Commonwealth, teem to have a pleasure in " forking over " their dol lars and dimes for the benefit of Locofoco plunderers, -and we are about content that they should have a sur feit of it that is ol the tax-paying. And they II have it, just as sure and certain as that two and two make four. When they 'have "had it, we are in hopes they'll vote for Reform.'' The above is copied from the IIol!idajburg Iie- gitr, and we can't help thinking that it is really a pity all the good advice of the modern Savant of Wniggery thould be thrown away upon the people. "With all the candor and sincerity of their candid and sincere hearts, tliey have lieen proclaiming the people of these States that the success of " Locolbco ism," is calculated to bring ruin, misery and degrada tion upon the w hole land, but the people won't hear. No, not one whit do they heed the counsels of these philanthropic Whigs; but almost every election fiuds them aiding to elect the u rascally Locofocos." But, seriously, we might ask, what has been the result of these repeated Democratic triumphs? Has our country become less prosperous and happy ? lias our wealth been diminished our trade contracted jur commerce destroyed our agricultural, mining, and manufacturing interests paralyzed? We think lot. We believe this country is as great, as glorious .and as prosperous now as it was when Jolm Quincy Adams filled the Presidential Chair, or Joseph Ritner dined fafflittl: hoes ' in Ilarrisburg. We think the Independent Treasury is as good a measure as the United States Bank, and we believe there is as much wisdom in the present Tariff as w as discernab'.e in the Bankrupt Law. "Doctors will dilier,' it is said, and so will Editors: and, therefore, we may be excused for saying thtt we think the people are as likely to be right as Whig politicians. The counsels of the latter may be, and doubtless are, well meant, but we can't see that any body is benefitted by them, and would suggest to those who are wasting their wisdom on the "deluded peo ple," that they might as well " pull up sticks " and tart for the Fee Jee Islands. They may possibly be appreciated there, but they never will be here. Peter G. Clover, Esq. This gentleman is defeated for Senator in the Arm strong, Clarion, and Indiana District, and Mr. Jami so.v, a volunteer Democrat elected. We are sorry to record this remit. Mr. Clover has been a tousistent Democrat, and deserved the sup port of his party.

'We despise a man who can beg for and receive favors from any party and then stab that party in the dark. We scorn a man wlip has not a heart capable of ap preciating his friends, and we detest any one who can only return treachery for kindness. No Democrat can thus act, and for any man who w ill sloop to such meanness to expect anything from honest politicians js folly. For our part we mark them we remern lier Ujcm, and a time may come w hen they will TimI that we tan tell the people all about them. War in Europe. 'The latest intelligence from F.urope states that the Sultan of Turkey has declared war against Russia. "The publk mind was prepared for this, and the won der has been that the grasping and aspiring Autocrat of Russia has not been met with the bayonet long since.

Temperance Strength. It the temperance vote polled at the late election in this Senatorial District can be taken as an evidence of the feeling ot the people on the subject, it is decidedly favorable to a prohibitory Liquor Law. Mr. Beli received 2C22 votes in the District, about one fourth of all polled. When we consider that this te was given him at a time when party lines were drawn, and regular candidates on both sides in the field, it is certainly quite respectable. House of Representatives.

The contest between Yaukee Sullivan and John Morrisey, which has been long talkcel of, took place on Wednesday afternoon at "Boston Four Corners," one hundred miles from New York. Tlie New York Tribune says : The fight lasted 55 minutes, during which 37 rounds were fought ; at the expiration of which Morrisey, who had been punished severely at nearly every round, was in a shoe-king condition, his nose being completely flattened, and his face cut frightfully, from which the blocd flowed pro- fi.i K- At this sta-re-of the fi -ht a row occurred in the ring, and during the noise and confusion which ensued, time was called, but Sullivan not hearing it, did not appear. The friends of Mor risey thenfoie declared him the victor, which was also pronounced by the judges. It is said that by this accident or oversight, and this only. on the part of Sullivan, he Inst the battle. -Morrisey, although lie exhibited good pluck, sadly disappointed his friends, as he show ed but a small degree of skill. Nearly three thousand pe-ople were on the ground to witness tb fight, which was not the least interrupted by ihcauthorities of that vicinity. It is said nearly all the fanners and citizens of that region 'were present to witness the disgraceful exhibition. The light was for 1 ,000 a side. The outside bets were 100 to 80 in favor of Morrisey. Sullivan mounted a blai-k handkerchief, to show that he was bound to win, or never strip for another fight, and it is to le hoped he will adhere to his determination. The Ne-w York Times has a more exte-nded ac count of tlie "matter. The excitement in New York seems to have be-en quite characteristic, and it is estimated that over three thousand per sons proceedeel to the scene of action by the Har lem railway, bet ween Tueselay noon and Wednes day morning;. Heavy bets were made as to the result. The Times gives the following as the most reliable statement of this spns-in tf modem ' chivalry :" ' It appears the pugilists met on the ground at 11 o'clock on Wednesday morning, amidst ni assemblage ofsome four or five thousand pcrsm-1-and nothing occurred to distuib them : the -g was formed and they were brought fer'i "y their seconds, who were as follows : For S Jhvan.

"There is now a dispute as to who was victori ous in the contest, and we learn that the Judges decided in lavor of Morrisscy, on the grounded' " foul blows," and " not coming to time," &c. This decision is, however, claimed to be- wrong by the opponents of it, and the stakchokkr was advised not to give up the 20 JO prize, which he has held in gold coin since the match was made.

The word "Porte" as applied to the Turkish government, is derived from averse by Italian interpreters, to an Oriental phrase. It was an ancient custom of eastern sovereigns, in admin istering justice,' or exercising other functions of their office, to sit, as tlie scriptural expression runs, at the pate of their palaces, dale liecame thus syuoiiomous of 'court,' or 'office and the Sultan's court was called by excellance, theej--ullel or luftij "tr.

I have tried the experiment, during this j ear, to my entire satis-faction, an.l therefore f- I it my duty to communicate the result for the bene fit of the public. In the full (any time before frost) the vines may be cut in any convenient leneth, and placed in layers: on the surface of the earth, to the de pth of twelve or eighteen inches, cover the vines, vhiht ilnmp, with partially rotted straw, (either pine or w heat w ill I answer) to tlie depth of twelve inches, and cover the w hole with a light sou alout four inches dcejt In this way the vines will keep during the winter, ami in 1 he spring they will put out sprouts a abundantly as thepjtato itself w hen bedded. The draws t sprouts can be planted first, and tie vine it self can be subsequently cut and u-H-das we generally plant slips.
