Morgantowu, Saturday, Nor. 11, 18S4. OUR BRASS BAND. The midnight serenade by the Tiritrs Band last night, was, without exception, the sweetest that we evor heard from a similar source. The air'cliriae'ii for the occasion, (-no doubt from the prolific ge nius of the Musician of the West, Capt. Stov) was a harmonious combination of the wild, the startling and the beau tiful, und it was performed by the Baod with an accuracy of time, and porf?rtion of harmony, that would ducredit to any Band of Musicians, whatever their ex perience or professions. Tho membors of tho Morgintnwn Bruss Band are im proving in musical execution with a ra pidity that is perccived and made the theme of comment by our citizens, and at a rate of progress too, seldom attain '3d by so young an organization. We have not iuditod this paragraph merely as a passing puff for a musical serenadf, but becnuso wo believe what we say, and therefore " speak right out in meotin'." Wo believe a little more, and we'll make a clean breast ofit, and that is that a perseverance at the pres ent rate of progiess will very speedily make ours the Star Band within a hun dred miles, in any direction. Compet itors may look to tlfeir laurels 1 Is CF" The Suspension Biidgfc lias beer!\ progressing quite rapidly in tho past iwo weeks. The Suspenders and pond ant joice are up two-thirds of tho whole length, and in two or three days foot ptssengers may cross on the planks. The toll-house is also up, and will be in readiness to receive iho spoils by the time the Bridge is ready to tako toll. The Bridge when comploted will be t beautiful structure, and as durable as pretty. It will be an ornament to the town, a credit to the county, and an honor to the State-all of which ate re presented in its construction. P. S. From present appearances tho Susponders will be up across the river and fooimon may cross to-day (Satur day) on tho loose planks. ty The correspondent of tho 'Re .publican, who, a year or more ago, look ed forward to a moonlight promenade with his lady-love on the Wire Bridge, and so hopefully prophecied success in courting enterprize under such cir cumstances, must feel a throb of delight penetrate every nerve and fibre of 'the timet :man,' in contemplation of the aptedy realization of his ardent love dream long ago. We shall look for a wedding about the holidays-and somo of the Cake, too! ?^ EF" Taking Toll alroady?they are at the Bridget One day last week tt?e ?f our citizens, (no matter who), im pelled by a laudable curiosity to iSe'e j how the bridge work was progressing, j rode up on to tho platform leading to ihe abutment, on a vory nice horse, and toon becamo engnged in a conversation on relative matters, with Mr. Tower, the gentlemanly Superintendent of the worl(. Meantime tho hands, wide a wake fur fun and a fee, transferred the theatre of active operation for the time heing, to tho rear of their unsuspecting uctiln, and complotoly barricaded the foot-way and his return. The inevita ble consequence was that ho was mulct ed in the Bum of 25 cents, which, how ovor, ho paid over to the toll-collector for tho occasion, and went his way, no doubt satisfied that he teas 'gal' a quar ter's worth, at any rate. ?. ? It is a shame that our town does not possess more rentable tenements.? We have been applied to within as ma ny months by four different families, living at a greater .fries, distance from ,?wn to koow if dwellings could bo I,ad here, and if so, they wished to move ,o Morgantown. But tho houses can t. 1,0 had, and industrious mechanics and, Cood citizens cannot bo accommodated hore from a distance, who would come among us. Now buildings go up hero,; it i, true, every year, but when tho nat ural increase in population keops pace with tho spirit of local improvement, it makes a poor show for 'outriders-' In all seriousness, we cannot conceive why it is that owners of beautiful Lots within our environs, with long purses B?d ample capital, do not build more houses?and particularly when rents ,?v so handsome a return on cap,tal in vested More houses, then, are certain ,y wanted, and their erection w.ll as ro. taii.ly pay the prop, .eton y?U"k.U Uis opinion of lleniy A.

The majority in Pennsylvania against iho prohibitory liquor law is 5, ICiS.? Tlio wholo vote ciist is 321,852, or 50, 000 less than that for Governor. It is a fair 'inference tliat, had these votes been cast, the majority against the law would have been vast/y increased, for iho -prohibitionists of course did their best, and brought Out nearly every vote thoy could mbsts'r.? Winchester. Virg. G?*" So far as zeal in the contest was concerned, tliero is no doubt that the anti-prohibitionists exceeded the friends of the measure, and it is not a fuir in ference to stipposfl that "had those extra votes been cast, the majority against the law would have boen vastly increased." We have it from intelligent men, who have been long identified with the tem perance reform, and whose opportuni ties to form and give a correct opinion cannot be doubted, that had there been a prohibitory law, of wise and salutary provisions, referred to the people of Pennsylvania, at the October election, that it would tiave received the sanction of at least a respectable majority of the voters. That a law prohibiting the sale of intoxicating liquors will be pass ed by the Legislature this winter, and enforced in those counties deciding for the measure, seems to be the tendency of eflbtts and events, and most likely by another year Pennsylvania will have joined the list of States whoso penal codes prohibit the trafHcinardeht spirits. NEW YORK ELECTION. New York, Nov. 8, X o'clock, A. M.? The returns as far as received show a j close run for Governor. Of ihe three prominent candidates Seymour, from present appearances, lias the best chance. In the city there is a clos'e run for Mayor between Woods (dem.) & Hunt, (reform.) Herrick, (whig) is nowhere; Barker (K. N.) is in about the same con dition. Up to this hour not one quar ter of the city has been heard from. The Baltimore Clipper gives tlio following as the result for Governor in ten counties: Seymour, (liquor candidate), 8430 Clurk, (anti-liquor,) 7060 Ulhara, (Native,) 6677 NEW JERSEY. Trenton-, Nov. 7.?The indication) by tho returns of tlie election in this State to-day for'members of Congress, as far as received, are that Messrs. Claw son, Rollins unil Pennington, whig*, are elected to Congress in the 1st, 2d and 5th dists. The 1st and 2d districts are now represented by democrats,? Mr. Pennington is the present motiibcr fiom the 6th. COSTA C.IOUS DISK A SES.?We belieVc it!s an established fact in medicine that " no disea sc can be contrnctcd while the Mood is in a pure and healthy state." In order to secure so desi rable an object, wo recommend to our readers the use of Carter's Spanish Mixture; which is generally acknowledged to bo the most effectu al purifier ol tho Blood yet discovered. It wot only cures, but is positively the only remedy which can be depended on as a preventive o'f epidcmic or contagio us diseases. [Nov.

Rely upon it that whon tho stomach will not di gest food?when fttitttnc&sand lassitude pervade the system?when the sleep is disturbed, tho appotito leeble, the mind lethargic, tho nerves unnaturally sensitive, and the head confused? rely iipon'it, that when these symptoms oqcur, the powers of vitality aro fuilliigj and that un- i less the mischief is promptly checked, life will j be shortened, as well aB rendered miserable.? j Now we know from a mass of testimony, great- ; er than was over before accumulated in favor of j ono remedy, that Ucofland's German flittefs, prepared by Dr. C.
