Our readers will open our paper jthi? week, with much anxiety in regard to the result o! i the recent Presidential election. We will not | be so cruel as to keep them in suspense longer than it will take them to read this sentence. — Abraham Lincoln, the candidate of the section al Black Republican party, is undoubtedly elec ted President. He has carried Pennsylvania and New York, by prodigious majorities—we don't know how much—and we have not as f yet heard of a single Northern state that has not succumbed to the sweeping tornado of Ab- : olitionism. Even Bedford county, we think, j has given Lincoln a plurality, and, perhaps, a j majority. About 500 Democrats stayed at { home and allowed the sectionalists to carry the j countv. We have but few returns from the j county at this writing, but make up our esti- ' mate from those already received. To the gal lant Democrats who fought on unfalteringly to i the end, we return our heartfelt thanks. Vic- ! torv will reward them in a not far distant fu ture, for the Black Republican paity is too cor- j rupt and has absorbed too much of the toui ma- j teriai of other parties, to last more than a year j or two. Mark the prediction ! IFF®Bell carries Tennessee, Kentucky, Vir ginia, and every Southern State heard lrom, except North Carolina. Missouri is supposed to have gone tor Douglas. [£F = *The election over, we will turn our at- ' tention more particularly to the making up of a . newspaper for family reading and the fireside. Now is the time to subscribe. BYERLY tONYKTKB OF FORGERY. William Byeilv, the Return Judge of the 4th Ward of Philadelphia, at the late election, has j been tried and found guilty of substituting a j false and" torsied papei for the true return of j the votes for member ol Congress in that ward j by which William E Lehman, Esq., the right- ! fully elected candidate in the first Congression- I a! District, was defrauded of his certificate.— | Byerly is now in prison, awaiting sentence.— ! The punishment for the offence of which he j stands convicted, is an imprisonment not to ex- ; ceed three years, a fine not to exceed SI,OOO { and deprivation of citizenship. The Pennsylvanian, in commenting upon this trial, remarks : "It is a humiliating reflec- ' lion that a man thought worthy of holding so responsible a trust as that ot a Judge of the E-1 lection, should prove .faithless to the duty, arid i attempt to defraud the people out of the sacred right cf franchise. And it is scarcely less hu- I miliating to a community, where education is i so highly esteemed and so generally diffused, to I know that the strongest plea for the innocence of the accused was that he was unable to write. Js it not time that some more useful qualifies- 1 tions shall be required in an Election Judge j than unscrupulous cunning, and brutat vio- . lence ?" And now that the conviction of Byerly has proved that the returns by which the first an nounced result was changed so as to make out an apparent majority for Mr. Butler, were a fraud and forgery, the question arises, whether Mr. Butler will retain a certificate obtained bv such means—proved by She solemn finding of a jury to have been wrongfully issued—and whether he will have the hardihood to claim a seat and take part in the organization of Con gress, under circumstances so dishonoraole and dishonest ? If (here is a particle of honesty and self respect in his character, he will spurn a certificate stamped with fraud and infamy, and yield the seat at once to Mr. Lehman, the rightfully elected member, without compelling him to wait the tedious process of a contested election case. The Harrisburg Patriot truly says, had the jiarties been reversed in this case, what a howj ot virtuous indignation at Democratic corrup tion would go up from the .Republican press of Philadelphia .' But, now they are as rrute as •nice. None of them (the Inquirer aione ex cepted— and perhaps we do wrong to call it a Republican paper,} have counselled Mr. Butler to do what common honesty dictates should he done without prompting, viz: renounce his ill gotten gains—give up the fruit of forgery—re fuse fo take the reward of felony. We shall see whether he hasllie courage to fie honest, krul not to appear in Congress w itfi a certificate procured bv fraud, while professing great soli citude to reform iheabuses and "corrupiions" of government. Where is John (ovode ' The Mornsous. The New York Times say : .fudging from the accounts which reach us from Utah, Urigham has very little idea at the present time of leaving the valley ot the Great Salt Lake with his followers, even for trie more genial climate <>t a Polynesian or an Last India Island. In fact a revival of the old Mormon spun seems to be going forward, which is likely to Lad to a more firm establishment ot the Saints in that region than ever More. The Tabernacle, which for some time alter the advent of the United States troops remained closed, has re cently been once more opened for public worship, and Bngham himself , harangues the people two or three times every Sabbath. Missiona ries are also being sent out to Europe and other countries, among whom is the celebrated Elder Orson Pratt. Tiit* Old Ship DEMOCRACY, First Mate, JOHN BELL, Pilot. Infidelity aud Black Republicanism- There appears to be a sympathy between In fidelity and Black Republicanism. A conven tion of infidels was held the other day in New- York, commencing on Sunday, and the speech es and proceedings generally were very inuch alter the style of Black Republican Conven tions. As an instance, we take the following letter, read before the convention trom a broth er u ho could not attend : To the Central Committee of the Infidel Asso ciation of America, in new York city, to as semble on the 7th of October, 1860 AND BRETHEREN.— It affords me no small pleasure at a time like this, when the mind of every patriot and freeman is borne back to the days that our forefathers declared "all men were created free and equal," to have the honor ot addressing a few words of encourage ment to you, as the faithful advocates of that good cause in which you and 1 are engaged.—• My only regret is that 1 cannot be with yon when you assemble as American freemen to claim lor him his birthright—the right of free dom. (Applause.) But let me assure you that my warmeEt sympathies, as well as that of -ny fiee German brethren here, are with you. (Ap plause.) You may ever depend on us as tlx heralds ot fieedom who came to this country not to support aristocracy or uphold humbug. No, we are to defend freedom, to piomote vir tue, to extend intelligence, to carry out the ob ject of the constitution cl our country, to crush slavery and to elevate man to that position for which by nature's laws he is intended. (Loud applause.) Our motto is, "So long as a man believes in God he is not fret ; so long as there is one slave in America it is not a free coun try Our organ is the Pioneer, edited bv Karl Hemzen, ol Boston, in whom we find the advocate and ttua friend of our cause. To go hand in hand with him is tny warmest wish.— Brethren, our Fourth of July will come, when it will not again be denied 'hat by nature's' laws man has the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Let us, then go to woik, be united, aud we will teach the would be lord and master that freedom of press and freedom of speech are uotjto oe trampled down aud trodden under foot as the sport ol tyrants. Let us firmly grasp this symbol of power and we will be victo rious. (Cheers.) As a toast I send vou : Honor to all free :nen, who speak what they think. Honor to our beioved friend Karl Heinzen, the bravest, trues! and freest German in America and the civilized world. Losg may he live. Very respectfully, your true friend and broth er. I)R. H. SHRODER. I take pleasuee in endorsing the foregoing sentiments. Yours trulv, JiNO.'J. M'KI.YNOY The Future of Republicanism. Our Republican friend.-, are jubilant in their anticipalio of victory on Tuesday last. They think the battle is won, while yet the skirmish has but commenced. For the present, let us suppose them successful, what must he the in evitable result? With the election of Lincoln, comes to him the solemn oath of office, and his duty to the government. Upon the one hand, he has a plain duty to perform ; to ca:ay out the clear letter of the Constitution •, upon the other he has a rabid, infatuated and fanatical party pressing upon him their dogmas of uegro equali ty and the higher law. He is the man who will first realize the "irrepressible con flict" in action. If he obey the teachings of tne Constitution and perform his sworn duty, his mad partisans will turn upon him. If he carry out their insane doc trines, the sobei second thought of the con servative masses will crush him at the first election. We verdure the prediction, that should Lin coln be elected, Black Republicanism will be ground to powder within two years bv the vigorous energies of a re-united Democracy mark the prediction. Nice OPENING KOR A YOUNG MAN. — In the Philadelphia Ledger, we find the following ad vertisement, which, for cool impudence, we think can certainly remove the dilapidated lin en from the bush : "Sir ANTED —By a respectable colored lam iiy, a WUITE lIOY 14 or lb years of age, to wait on the table ami make him self generally useful about the house.

The victims were reckoned by thousands." Even those who do not admire American sla very, may infer that the negroes in the South are quite as well off as they would be under the benignant rule of Dahomey's King. A very large proportion of the slaves have been con verted to Christianity, and those who have trav elled through Europe, where women tow the canal boats, or. yoked with dogs, are employed as beasts ul burden, or, in wretched manufac tories, toil till hialth and life are lost, are in clined to think that the condition of the slaves is far more enviable ; but when contrasted with i that oi subjects of His Majesty of Dahomey, ought it not to reconcile us somewhat to the "peculi it institution?" jf the slaveholder ! are eati- tied, have the slaves nuy right to com plain ?

We copy the following sketch of the route ! of the Sherman's Valley R. R., lrom a pamph let on the sulject bv a citizen of New York ! city : The Sherman's Valley Railroad Co. has an | excellent charter and the company is organized with Gen. Wilson, ol Huntingdon as President ; and a strong board of Directors. This route | has beensuiveyed , but I did not entirely 1 >l - low the survey. II the Allentown road is not completed to make a direct, independent line lrom this city to Dauphin, (the point at which Sherman's Valley s!iikes the Susquehanna.) it would be necessary to follow up the Susquehan na six miles from Hariisburg, bridge the river, and then diverging to the left, up Fishing > Creek., pass to Sherman's Creek, up whicu the i route is through one ot the richest valleys in the State o! Pennsylvania,and presenting no obstacle :to the easy construction ola road, lout one short I tunnel and but slight grades in any case would : be requned, most of the route being level and | easy ul construction. The Cumberland Valley road from Ilarris- I burg to Chambersburg, having only a local | liade, pays b percent., and 1 should think the

produce and tiade on Sherman's Valley would I be equal, beside the timber furnished from the mountain slopes. The broad Top Coal Co. is now furnishing to market 190,009 tons per annum semi-bituminous coal, by means of a ( railroad up the Ray stow n Branch \ alley from Huntingdon, and the Pennsylvania railroad.— By the road through Sherman's valley, (tie i southern side of the broad Top is reached and I the same coal accessible to market at a distance 137 miles less than by the present ioad. This j is a saving ot 4-li cts. per ton in transportation j i —in itself a large margin of profit, and j furnishing to the road, a s tiie supply is abun- ; j dant and it is the only coal ot tlrat quality available to market. The principal piuducts i of this valley are wheat 74-3,262 bushels, oats 680,4-65 bushels, corn hi 5,296 bushels, butter 899.335 pounds and other products in piopor- j tion, showing a rich valley and as theie are I still 320,000 acres ot land to be improved, an ! enlarged future trade. The distance from the j mouth of Fishing Creek to burnt Cabins is 70 j miles, every mile ot which would pay well from local trade and open up an increased pro duce which now never reaches our city or finds a market. The road will pass through or near the fol lowing thriving villages and towns, Landisburg, Loysville, Blair. Germantown, Concord, Water loo and .\ossville, to Burnt Cabins, a nourish ing village in the corner of Fulton County, to j which we have already passed from Chambers- i burg. are 70 miles lrom Harrisburg, 63 | from Dauphin, or by the Allentown road 240 , tniies from New York, and whichever way j may be taken, whether throuh Cumberland or I Sherman's Valley, without an obstruction and over such a route as every man would desire i lor a railroad. The report of Mr. Worrell, a j highly, competent engineer, will be belore the public at un eatly day, as lie is about com- ! mericing a survey under the employ of the Sher man's Valley Company . Anyone desiring in-| lormation of progress can obtain it by addressing , W. B. Anderson, Esq., Secretary ol the Sher- ■ man's Valley Railroad Comnanv, New Bloom field, Pa. The nature of the route hom Burnt Cabins westwaid to Bed lord presents no greater ob structions than that on the east. The route follows Aughwick Creek, Brush Creek, and the Kaystown branch of the Juniate to Bedford, or, past surveys show that by an easy cut the road could be carried across the Groundhog Valley, and connect with the Hopewell and Bedford road, most ol which is graded and some of"it ready for the rail. Bedford and Fui ton counties aie partly travelled m this route. D.stauce 3(5 miles. The country is rich, a bounding in lumber and ore, and, having the advantage of the Broad Top coal, becomes valuable tor furnaces. The soil is generally limestone and slate, and the agricultural pro ducts heavy aud increasing. The popularity ot Bedford Sp:ings, which, although isolated now, have some thousand or more visitors du ring a summer, present further attractions for this work as a lucallv paying toad. From Bedford the route passes up the Junia ta and Buffalo Creek to the head of Wills' Creek, and thence down this to Bridgeport without curve perceptible, cut or bridge at an v point. The country is fair but presents no especial attratli m, except for the facility with which a road can be constructed. At Bridgeport we commence the rise t 0 the SAND PATCH TUNNEL through the Alleghany Mountains as surveyed and worked for the Connellsville Railroad Company with a view to connection with Baltimore. The distance is six miles with an easy grade of sixty feet to the mile, but whict. can be re duced for a first class road to fifty feet. The tunnel is between four and five thousand feet in length, tiie heading of which was all re moved but about thirty fees, before the suspen sion of the Oonnellsviile Company. The road as surveyed by that company, then descends Flaugberty Creek, five miles, to Castleman's river at an easy grade ot fifty feet to the mile. Here is one of lhe many eieat ixiints of mer it on this route. The Allegl>ies are crossed with light grade and curve, at a low gap, while the Pennsylvania, and Baltimore and Ohio, j cross them on grades ol over 100 feet to the mile throug a rough and forbidding country, where the traveller is swung mid-air in con stant dread of toppling down the abvsi to in stant death. There is not a single place of j high embankment or air swung road or tressel | work ;or one where trains cannot be run wilh . s.iletv at lull speed. T.'us, then, must be the travelled route in preference, except for pain- I ters, poets, and madmen seeking thrilling sensa ,tions to diversify Jife or adorn death. The ! pass will he by railroad 309 miles f rom j\* ew York, with but 118 miles of road to construct, j should the Sherman's Valley route be taken' J and still less it liie Cumberland Valley r() ad be' ! obtained ; the latter at expense, as we make it' of 14 miles in distance.. As we followed Cattleman's nver bevond the tunnel, tlirough Somerset and Fayette count : e* jwe felt more than ever the utility, if no t ne ! cessity, of the prompt construction of"this road. Ihe distance down Castl**mau*s and tlie j Youghiogheny to ConnellsriHe, to which point | j h * road is constructed from PitUbuig (90 miles) 'is 46 miles. The grade descending uniformly j witti the streams in a direct course, at not ex ceeding twplve feet to the mile, excepting at ; a point where a short tunnel would be desira | ole to save about three mile, cutting off a bend jof the river. Here the grade would be 26 feet, j Negro mountain and the spurs of Laurel Hill : through which the river breaks, rise on the' I South and are covered with the of pine j lumber, of which there are many thousands ot i acres accessible to the road, also oak and pop lar in abundance. This would be found valua ble in oui market, the freight being much less 'han from Michigan, from whence we now eel jour principal supplies. The northern slopei are also in large sections, still covered with i lumber of like quality. Cnder these is abun ! dant iron ore, limestone, and the same hill, I contain no Jess than forty feet of bituminous | coal, ol various qualities, in strata fiom Cur 'to eleven feet in thickness. Under these, ' the bed of trie river, a vein of five feet of tan nel coal crops ou'. For the manufacture of : iron this place surpasses any point I have ever seen, i* the ore, limestone, coal, wood | for charcoal, and wafer abundant on the same ; ground. All that is required is a means of ac cess, such as would h* given by this road, to ! make it oneofthe very richest'poriions ol our country. This wealth of ore and coal expends along the river into Fayette Conntv and to the , present tei minus of the Pittsburg and Co nnelis i ville road. The two counties are also fair j farming and superior grazing fands. Somerset alone sep.d.i annually a million of pounds of ih finest butter to the Baltimore market, with j large exports of cattle, hogs, oats, rye, corn, | and some wheat. Water power is abundant, the Ohio Pile Falls being competent to supply more power than is used at Lowell, Lawrence, j and Manchester. Washington county,'-on the same line, is one ol the riche.-t and largest counties in the State Jof Pennsylvania, with a limestone soil and j generally in a high state of cultivation, its ex ' ports of wheat, wool and other staples being very large. By the completion of about thirty miles of road, aiready partly made, over a good route, to the town of Washington, We reach ; the Hempfield road to Wheeling, Y'a., 3] miles. Such is a brief and fair view of the line of ' the road to which we have a,k.-d your atteu | lion, and the eoQntry through which it passes. 111 NG roc THE NINETEENTH TIME.—A YVw tern Missouri cotemporarv teils the following . :On Tuesday la.-t news came to this city that a , man was seen hanging between Independence and Maxwell s Landing. Phe Coroner was | promptly notified of the fac.', and he in the dis | charge of tiis duty, as promptly repaired to the .scene but, to his surprise found the man alive, kicking, and walking about as other men do, w 1 1li no rope round his neck where the rope client to be. lie (the Coroner) made some in quiries about ins victim, anu the old woman that is, Mis the wife ot the hung man— I re | ) *' , 'd that he was down, but uot dead , and : further remaiked, that it was about the nine j tve.ith time he had attempted to hang himself, i an-.. liadn t yet succeeded, but he'd be totally i darned il he mightn't hang the next time until |he was good dead —that she would never cut | the cord again to I-t him breathe easy.

On Tuesday morning he told some of tiis friends that he had made up his mind to cut his throat. Having been shown the folly and sin of so doing, he promised his friends that lit* would not, and went to his home apparent ly in better spirits. On Tuesday night, how ever, while alone, lie succeeded in getting his wife's crinoline petticoat, and having partially pulled one of the rope hoops out, he threw the garment over his room door, u Inch lie closed having previously pulled the hoop over the tup of the door. The crinoline he then passed round his neck, and dropp-d his legs ovei the stairs. There he remained suspended until Po lice-constable 217, ol the M. division, was call ed in by the screaming of some of the inmates. That officer at once cut him down and Dr. Tanner, ol Guv's Hospital, was sent f -r, who promptly attended, but life was then extinct.— 1 he ooov remain- until the coroner's inouist is held.— London Times.
