Franklin County. CP* We copy the following amusing account of the late election in Franklin County from tlie Chambersburg Whig of the 17th inst. which we are satisfied will be read with interest bv all into whose hands it may fall. It is both rich and spicy. Franklin county, it will be re membered, used to be stvled the "Green, Spot" ofnur opponents, from the fact that it gave so st'udv and uniform a large majority for the whir ticket —hut Know Nothingism supplanted .Mr. Whiggerv before the old gentleman load time to consider! and, !o! and behold! old Democra cy, at the second trial, has taken possession ol the strong citadel. This, however, was not owing to the actual strength of the Democra cy, hut to the bold, manly and patriotic manner in which a large body of the best Whigs in the countv, under the lead of Col. A. K. M'CU;RE, ol the II //ig, repudiated the "ti i-nitrht Order." Nothwithstanding the "Valley' Sj/iril " is one of t lie most able and efficient papers in the old Keystone, always pouring a regular, steady, and sure fire into the ranks of the enemies of De mocracy, yet the fact cannot be concealed that without the aid of Col. McCiure Know-Noth ingism must have triumphed in that county, a hct which no man will be more ready to con cede than our friend Coo re u, who is a man eve ry inch of him. Alter a careful review of the course taken by Col. M'C . in the last compaign, we most cheer fully .forgive him for every harsh sentence or word he uttered against us in the bitteness of "political strife." We think it more than pro rhle that if we had known each other better, wv would both have omitted many harsh para graphs we suffered to he sent abroad through medium of our respective journals. Colo ur!, we wish you health, a long life, all the pleasures and comforts this world can afford, and - rf "at prosperity in all things when engaged in good and as pure a cause as aiding to "crush <,u t an oath-bourid secret political Society •"■orh as never before disgraced an v party upon face of the Globe. But we are greatly di •gressing. We simply intended to call the at 'rnlion ofour readers to the following well writ- C'H and amusing article on the recent election W1 - ranklin County : in Kleciiofl Night in Ihambersbiirg. 'lie times that "tried men's soul's" are not Peculiar to the days of the Revolution. This ''' "!" r " aqd progressive age is pregnant with '•> ing events, and one stated period of delivery ' 'be Second Tuesday of October each year— ' "Ction day in Pennsylvania. This famous day yuie along this y ear about the usual time.— "* sun arose in the east a in by-gone days— 4jUne with its accustomed splendor, and set in _ r, ct accordance with the almanac as the shades [ "ght gathered around us. Gulden leaves and r 'y "Hits were abundant, as in the good old days JUr fathers : and Captain in <ale Imro ol many a gallant shot in the neck Was on hands in full martial costume, with nsual assortment of "snakes" and "bricks" '• ie pedestal and upper extremities of the I'UbllC. fa a word, election day was here last week, i and the political race-course had an axtra nag on the track, popularly known as "SAM." He had tried his speed on the siv last year along the edges, and had periorined some surprisiu" teats in the way or helping old vox populi to make good time ; and this year he had himself trailed, lubricated, rubbed down and trotted out against the field. The stakes through all the heats were between him and Democracy, as the favorite old hero of many a brilliant tri umph, known as VVhigg<-ry, had been stripped ol his trappings and robbed of his fodder by the new competitor. Democracy was a little still" from last year's drubbing, but it was discovered early in the day that he would have the benefit ol some Whig riders, and bets ran even pret ty much all the time between him and "SAM." A jolly day was- our election day. "SAM" I and the Democracy had the pulls to themselves and they contested the ground incli by inch, while the little rear-guard of' VVbiggerv whit tled their sticks and put in a jolly vote now and then between storms. "Hurrah lor Srr.v- IJAUG." "Hur-r-r-r-a-h lor VVASIIAI;AI;<.II."— "Hur-r-r-r-a-y for (hie) 'SAM,'" were the watch-words around the council fires, while "Hurrah lor the Dimmicrats and (hie) (JINERAG JACKSON" occasionally echoed along the Demo cratic ranks, 'l'he Whigs reserved their yell ing lor the next campaign, it was clip and cut and cut and clip all the day long. And when the polls closed the discreet of both sides , retired to wait quietly lor the result. "SAM," however, had engaged rather more than his share of "snakes," and he did extra veiling be j lore the returns commenced coming in. if we asked the time of night, we were told that it was "just about—hurrah for STUMRAUGH." if we asked for the privilege of bringing our prin cipe in contact with one of its ignited fellows, we were told "vessir-ee— WASIIABACGII'S (hie) elected." if ue asked for returns we were told—"there's no doubt about it: the Eagle's the bird for me." The South Ward finally came in and "SAM" had out-done his expecta tions, whereupon a broadside of enthusiasm and : eagles greeted us. Hamilton soon followed, ami though a little below the council figures, the eagle still waved aloft. Guilford caine next, and by a mistake in the informal count, "SAM" was more than himself again. "Hur-r-r-r-ah lor SruMBACMJ," went up melodiously in the "stil ly night." The North Ward was next on hands, and "Hurrah lor WASH A —(hie) STLM RAUGtt," broke upon our ears, and alter some . side-cheering, order and quiet resumed their ; swav. Occasionally some mellow voice would "Hurrah for (hie) Gun and the Dimmicrats," but the Democratic artillery was generally si lent, and, at this stage or the action, hardlv properly primed. Long and anxious was the suspense as Greenvillage, Favetteville and St. Thomas tarried, anil hurrahs were postponed, both sides resting on their arms, excepting an occasional hoarse, guttural sound breaking forth from both camps regardless ot figures. Fayette- V i I ! E finally came and "SAM" was awfully scotched, but he was declared still living, and away went hurrahs on both sides lather by wav of keeping their courage up. Greenvillage was next on hands, and the council had missed its figures and over fifty votes were wanting.— "Hurrah for (hie) Ontt" rather increased in volume and shortened the intervals, and it re quired a brave deciple of the e3g|e to raise a cheer, but some faint ones did go oil" neverthe less. Midnight had now stolen upon us, and we took advantage of the calm to reconnoitre the field. We tried everv system of Arithme tic taught in our school boy days—subtraction, addition, compound addition and multiplication, but the Whig ticket wouldn't come out elect ed. We thought of vulgar fractions, but how ever adapted apparently to the case, they wouldn't win, and alter a careful examination of the whig body politic, it was pronounced dead —DEAD! The Whigdealh over we mode a tour among the wounded. We found "SAN;" at lus head quarters a little drowsy, patching tip the broken calculations and getting in monstrous returns (on paper) from the remaining districts. Hur rahs were now scarce on all sides. The De mocracy we found like the Dutchman's milk "all lying around loose," with pencils, paper, and calculations flush, and big returns (on pa per) from Uie remaining districts. Both camps had a due share of wounded—some in the neck, some in the Democracy and some in the Eagle, hut all were on duty (mairilv in the oyster-cel lars trying to nullify the new license law on the ale-issue) and we returned to hang Whig crape on our office-door. For t wo weary hours stillness reigned in Chumbersburg. WASIIAUAUGH stricken oil the hurrah list by consent of all parties. Qtiincy next popped in with a terrible broad side—a perfect crusher—against the Democra cy. "SAM" was forthwith jubilant and hardly even respectful to the bereaved relatives of the Whig party, and Democracy allowed "expres sive silence" to muse the praise of the Eagle in Quincy. Next came Antrim, Washington and Mercersbiirg, and forthwith "SAM" was chang ed from joy to mourning. seat at liarrisbtirg considered debatable, and -'Hurrah for OKR" was unceasingly heard to burst upon the morning solitude. Another long and pain ful suspense followed, as the whole Valley was still to be heard from, and the race seemed to be neck and neck. Pencils, slips of paper, old election tables, &c., were again brought into requisition by all sides, and both parlies always figured both parties out ahead. As the golden tinge of day was throwing its gentlest rays upon the far East, the Valley came in on an unro inantic horse in the pocket of a mulled hoy, and "Sam's" figures were fearfully curtailed by the official vote. "Hurrah for OUR" (all par ties were now sober) now became rather com mon thunder, and each additional return only piled on the agony until about time for late morning bitters and breakfast, when STUMBALGTI was laid aside with WASHABAUGH among the spiked and otherwise damaged gnus of the cam paign. Thus were the chieftains of "SAM'S for ces (for the mass of the party fought almost ex clusively for SuuMHArcii) placed in the list of killed, and when "SAM" had lost his .head, few cared how many arms and legs had been saved whole. Early in the day the following appa rently ollictal orders were promulgated : ORIIER NUMBER ONE. Cono\ lCß SCNSENY.—You are hereby instruct-' ad to bury in some quiet and secluded spot, the remains ol the late Whig party. That portion of it that has gone over to the Democrats can be allowed to shoot lor future usefulness. DEMOCRACY. Oct. 10, 1855. In accordance with the foregoing order, the pout-mot iem examination of Whiggery was had with due solemnity, and the funeral ceremonies briel but impressive in deploring silence, were disposed of at once. No useless coffin enclosed its breast, Nor in sheets, nor in shroud we bound it ; But it lay like a mud-turtle taking its rest With "Sam" and Democracy around it. We cannot vouch for the authenticity of the subjoined, but it is believed to be genuine. ORDER NUMBER TWO. Our garrison alter sustaining an infernal fire ' from the allies, has been compelled to retire with the loss of our general officers, various privates shot in the neck, and an innumerable quantity of small arms. The field however is still redolent with "snakes" and "bricks" as the proud monuments of our bravery. The ar my will forthwith disband, blow up its fortifica tions and put out its council fires, as it cannot sustain another campaign on buncombe rations and crippled commanders. SAM Oct. 10, 1855. There was one jolly party on the field and that was the democracy. Thus closed an elec tion night in Chambersburg, and the gray morn ing returned as usual, and the world wagged on j as if innocent of Pennsylvania elections. The Lord's Prayer- A friend tells us an anecdote of 800 tit, thr great tragedian, which we do not recollect having seen in print. Jt occurred in the palmy days ol his fame, before the sparkle of his great black eye had been dimmed -by that bane of Genius—strong drink. Booth and several of his friends had been invited to dine with an old gentleman in Baltimore of distinguished kind ness, urbanity and piety. The host, though dis approving of theatres and theatre-going, had heard so much of Booth's remarkable powers, that curiosity to see the man had, in this in stance, overcame all scruples and Alter the entertainment was over, lamps light ed, and the company reseated in the drawing room, some one requested Booth, as a particu lar favor, and one which a!! present would, doubt It ss appreciate, to read aloud the Lord's Braver. Booth expressed his ready willingness to afford them this gratification, and all eyes were turned expectantly upon him. Booth rose slowly and fervently Irom his chair. It was wonderful to watch the play of emotions that convulsed his countenance. He became deathly pale, and his eyes, turned tremblingly upward, were wet with tears. As vet lie had not spoken. The silence could be felt. ]t be came absolutely painful, until at last the spell was broken as by an electric stioke, as his rich toned voice, from white lips, syllabled forth, "Our Father who art in Heaven," ix.c., with a pathos ami a fervid solemnity that thrilled ail hearts. He had finished. The silence contin ued. Not a voice was heard nor a muscle mov ed in his rapt audience, until from a remote cor ner ot the room, a subdued sob was heard, and the old gentleman (their host) stepped forward with streaming eyes and tottering frarrw, and souzed Booth by the hand. "Sir," said he, in broken accents, "you have aflorded me a plea sure for which my whole future life will feel grateful. lam an old man, and every uav,

from boyhood to the present time. I thought I had repealed the Lord's Prayer, but] have nev er heard it before, never." "You are right," replied Booth : "to read that prayer as it should be read has cost me the severest study and labor for thirty rears, and I am lar from being yet satisfied with my read ing of that wonderful production. Hardly one person in ten thousand comprehends what beauty, tenderness and grandeur can he con densed in a space so small and words so simple. That prayer of itself sufficiently illustrates the truth id the Bible, and stamps upon it the seal of Divinity." "So great was the effect produced, (says our informant, who was present,) that the conver sation was sustained but a short time longer in subdued monosyllables, and almost entirely ceased : and soon after, at an early hour the company broke up, and retired to their several homes, with sad luces and lull hearts."—Chi cago Tribune. THE PRAYER OF THE REV. J NO. CHAMBERS. —We have been informed, by a gentleman who heard the prayer made by the Rev. John Cham bers, in Independence Square, on the occasion of the Masonic procession, that for fervid patri otism, and Christian sublimity, it has never been excelled. We recommend the portion given below, as repeated to us from merpory, to the members of the Know-Nothing Order, and all who aid or abet that prescriptive body of men : "We beseech Thee, Omnipotent Jehovah, thou great Architect of the Universe, to pro tect, guard and perpetuate the temple of liberty in this our happy land. Continue to admit within its portals the stranger and the exile, who approach it with garments dripping with the chilly dew of other and less favored climes. Cause love and charity to glow and fructify in our hearts for suflejng humanity throughout the world, SOMEBODY says a wife should he like roasted lamb—tender and nicely dressed. Somebody else wickedly adds, "and without sauce!" Freedom of Thought and Opinion. BEDFORD, PA. FRIDAY MORNING, OCT. 26, 1855. Canal Com. Assembly. Treasurer. Commissioner. P. Director. Coroner.

From the Correspondence of the London Times. Horrible Scenes Within Sebasloptil. "01 all the pictures ot the horrors of war which have been presented to the world the hos pital ol Sebastopol presents the most horrible, heartrending, and revolting. It cannot be de scribed, and the imagination ola Fuseli could not conceive anything at all like unto it. How the poor human body can be mutilated and vet hold its soul within, when every limb is shatter ed, and-every vein and artery is pouring out the lile stream, one might study here a', every step, and at the same time wonder what liltle will kill. The building used as a hospital is one of the noble piles inside the dock-yard wall, and is situated in the centre of the row, at light an gles to the line of the Redan. "The whole row was peculiarly exposed to the action ol shot and shell bounding over the Redan, and to the missiles directed at the Bar rack Battery, and it bears, in sides, roots, win dows, and doors, frequent and destructive proofs of the severity of the cannonade. Entering one of these doors I beheld such a sight as few men, thank (loJ, have ever witnessed ! In a long low room, supported by square pillars, arched at the top, and dimly lighted through shattered and unglazed u iudow-h ames, lay the wounded Russians who had been abandoned to our mer cies by ttieir g-neral. The wounded did I say ? No, but the dead, the rotten and fester ing corpses ot the soldiers, who were left to die in their extreme agony untended, uncqred for, packed as close as they can lie stowed, some on the floor, others on wretched trestles and bed steads, or pallets of straw, sopped and saturated with blood, which oozed and trickled through upon the floor, mingled with the droppings of corruption. I "With the roar of exploding fortresses in with shell and shot forcing through the iHWraud sides ol the which they lay, with the crackling and fflß?Wg of lire a round them, these poor fellows who had served their loving friend and master the Czar but too well, Were consigned to their terrible fate.— Many might have been saved by ordinary caie. Many lay, yet alive, with maggots crawling a boiit their wounds. Many, nearly mad by the scene around them, or seeking escape from it in tlieir extreinest agony, had rolled away under the beds, and glared out on the heart-stricken spectators—Oh! with such looks. Many, with legs and arms broken and twisted, the jagged splinters sticking through the raw flesh, implo red aid, water, food, or pity, or, deprived of I speech by the approach of death, or by dread | fit! injuries on the head and trunk, pointed to ■ the lethal spot. I njVJany st-eiped bent alone on making their peace with Heaver.. Tm- attitudes of some were so hideously fantastic as to appal and root one to the ground by a sort of dreadful fascina tion. Could that bloody mass of clothing and white bones ever have been a human being, or ttiat burnt black mass of flesh have ever been a human soul ? It was fearful to think what the answer must he. The bodies ol numbers of men were swollen and bloated to an incredible de gree, and the features distended to a gigantic size, with eyes protruding from the sockets, and ttie blackened tongue lolling out of the mouth, compressed tightly by the teeth which had set upon it in the death rattle, made one shudder and reel round. "In the midst of one ol these 'chambers of horrors'—for there were many ol th-rn—were tumid some dead and some living English sol diers, and among them poor Captain V'aughan, of ttie yOth, who has since succumbed to his wounds. 1 confess it was impossible lor me to stand the sight, which horrified our most expe rienced surgeons—the deadly, clammy stench, the smell ot gangrened wounds, of corrupted blood, ol rotten flesh, were intolerable and odi ous beyond endurance. But what must the wounded have felt who were objiged to endure all this, and who passed away without a hand to give them a cup of water, or a voice to say one kindlv Word to them. "Most ol these men were wounded on Satur day—many perhaps on the Friday before ; in deed, it is impossible to say how long thev might have been there. In the hurry of their retreat, the Muscovites seem to have carried in dead men to get thein out of the way, and to have put them upon pallets in horrid mockery. So that this retreat was secured the enemy cared but little for the wounded. On Monday only did tliey receive those whom we sent out to them during a brief armistice lor the purjiose, which was, J believe, sought by ourselves, as our overcrowded hospitals could not contain, and our overworked surgeons could not attend to any more. "The Great Redan was nest visited. Such a scene of wreck and ruin ! All the houses he hind it a mass of broken stones—a clock turret, with a shot right through the clock—a pagoda jn ruins—another clock tower with alMhe plucks destroyed save the dial, with the words 'liarwise, London,' thereon : cook-houses, where human blood was running among the utensils , in one place a shell had lodged in the boiler and blown it and its contents, and probably its attendants to pieces : everywhere wreck and de struction, I his evidently was a beau quartier onpe. "I he oldest inhabitant could not recognize it now. Climbing up the, Redan, which was fearfully cumbered with the dead, we witness- TERHS, S2 PER YEAR. VOL XXIV, NO. 10. Ed the scene of the desperate attack and de fence which cost both sides so much blood.— The ditch outside made one sick; it was piled up with English dead, some ot them scorched and blackened by the explosion and others lac erated beyond recognition. The quantity of broken gaoions and gun carriages here was ex traordinary : the ground covered with them. The prools were the same as in the Alalakofl, and in one of them a music book' was found, with a woman's name in it, and a canary bird and vase of flowers were outside the entrance." Death m the Midst of Life. a This is the title of a sermon delivered by DfV ' Doane, Bishop of New Jersey, on the Sunday following the terrible catastrophe on the Camden and Amboy Railroad. The opening, which we quote, discloses some personal incidents of pain-* tul interest. It is related ol the distinguished Robert Hall, that having written a funeral sermon from the words- "In the midst of hie we are in death," lie searched the Bible to flr.d the place to an nounce them Irom, and wondered that he could not. They are ir; that which is only not the Bi ble, the Book of Common Prayer, and if not Scripture, \vere conceived and born of it. X venture the opinion that they have been utter ed from more hearts within the last four days than any other sentence in our language. And I have been so perfectly possessed with it sell, that it must be the theme,'although it nay not be the text, of what I say to you this morn ing. "In the midst of life we are in death." \ou all remember how beautiful a day was Wednesday. We may suppose such weather constantly in Paradise. I spent the morning on 1 our unsurpassed Green Bank with two friends, one of more than thirty yeais, who had come to put their children at the college. They left me with their little sou, in the most perfect enjoy ment of all that makes up life, to return to tneir homes in New York. In less than an hour I heard ot all that had happened on the railroad. I thought at once ol them, and rather flew than run to find their mangled bodies. God had preserved them perfectly uninjured. I here came to me, from Boston, twenty years ago, a young man (Edward G, Prescott, Esq.,) Who had early taken a high stand at the bar.— He was of patriot name the very blood of Bun ker Hill. His lather had adorned the bench. His brother had not been surpassed, as a bistort rian, in modern times. He had lived and away from God, But his heart had been touched. It had melted under the gospel. It yearned to preach tcX others the unseatchable riches which had been more than rubies to itself. And he asked me to receive him as a candidate for holy orders. J did. There are many here who must remember him. He studied faithfully and well. He was ordained. He went to Sa lem as minister of the parish. He was most ac ceptable as a preacher: and, as a pastor, most devoted, lie married as lovely a woman as ever lived. His life was tilled to over flowing with the double tide of usefulness and happiness. But "this is not our rest." His health failed- He sought in vain jts restoration. Ht* went to sea. He died on board the ship. H<? left a widow without children. Possessed of a hand some foitune, and what is better, with a sense that it was not her own, she was another .Dor cas, in the "good works and the alms-deeds which she did." At ten o'clock on Wednes day she started, with (ler dear friends, upon a tour ol health and recreation. And,. 111 little more than an hour,-liad yielded updher soul to GoJ. Is it not true, "that in the midst of life we are in death ?" Do we or can we know "what shall be on the morrow ?" Which one of us might not have been in that disastrous train? Which one of us might not have been of that dead company which tilled our streets with coffins, and hung our houses and our hearts with sackcloth. My brethren, there can need no preacher to bring tins mournful .Providence home to our heart ol hearts. Those Hearing trains. The signal to break up. The carriage on the track. I lie crash. The crush. Car mounted upon car. Car rushing through the midst of car. The cloud ol dust. The storm of splinters. The groan. I'lie shriek. The wail. The woun ded. The mutilated. The crushed. The torn asunder. Jhe buried alive. The fearful row upon the bank. The hurt. The dying. The dead. Our public houses filled with the maim ed and mangled. Our public halls a receiving vault lor unknown corpses. Our private hou ses so many hospitals. Every man a servant. Every woman a nurse. Through the whole day business checked. The social currents all directed to one point. Not an act, not a word, not a thought, but ol the wounded, of the dy ing, ol the dead. The very centre of our citv a choked grave-yard. There is no human elo quence, that is not beggared by such sermons as that scene preached to every heart. Cod spoke, and man was still. "In the midst of life," all leit, —"m the midst oi lile—we are in death." 1 FTE VICTORY. — Jhe Louisville Times states, as an incident of the mob in that city, the fol lowing : "A woman who attempted to save her hus band, was pitched dovyn stairs, breaking her neck and limbs so that she died. The mob, finding their game scarce, set the torch to the houses ; the women lied—one who was fleein" with a young infant m her arms, was followed by a hard-hearted wretch, who, coming up, put ttie muzzle ot the wea|>on to the child's head, fired, and bespattered its brainsqver its mother's arms I" VERMONT. —In the Legislature of Vermont two amendments to the Constitution have been reported, and the council has indicated a deter mination to recommend their adoption. The first provides for biennial sessions of the Legis lature; the other lor the election of Secretary of State, Auditor of accounts, llank Commissioner, an' l KegjsUT of I'robate by the people.
