At the election on monday last it appears that 319 votes were polled in Sangamon county while at the election in 1838 less than this number were polled in Sangamon Menard Logan and Christian counties the election then was of deep interest and brought out nearly every voter. Does any candid Man believe that our voting population has increased to this extent ? none such believe it. We ourselves saw More than 100 Federal voters rejected at the polls on monday last and we learn from persons stationed there that upwards of two Hundred and fifty were rejected nearly All of them with Harrison tickets in their hands residents of other states minora. The journal boasts that they have Given 751 Federal majority in Sangamon. This is True hot this majority would have been one thousand if the democrats had not succeeded in arresting a ome of the Many fraudulent and illegal votes which were urged up with a Zeal hich seemed willing to risk perjury to accomplish the ends of party. We have not a doubt that the Harrison majority Here has been increased by illegal votes. We mean nothing against the judges As the journal insinuates nor the clerks. 1 hey acted fairly and uprightly throughout. The democratic vote remains the same As at August rising 1200 votes in the county and being nearly one half of the number of persons returned by the marshal As residents of the county above Twenty years of age Cdr Otts s new Hampshire Patriot says the following ticket was cast of the late election in that state. The vote is a it Emo Ralic whatever May be the politics of the person who threw it we. Commonsense. Jacob honesty. Richard straight Forward. I Eter prudence. Thomas Economy. Alexander Pear nothing.

That fully one half of All the women who marry Are married Between 20 and 25, or on Balf of a woman s chances is comprised within these five years. 3.

Anecdote or Lorenzo following anecdote of this eccentric character has been sent us in manuscript by a correspondent who thinks it has never been published. We think we have some recollection of seeing it in print several Yeara ago. At any rate it is Worth republishing. Some years since Lorend preached at Charleston s. C., and in the course of one of his sermons attacked with some severity the character of a citizen who had lately died and whose death he eur was in consequence of Bis vices. For this he Wae at the instance of the relatives of the deceased prosecuted and found guilty by a jury. The court sentenced him to pay a Small Fine and endure a Short imprisonment. The governor of the state however pardoned him and paid the Fine himself. The next sunday in it Renzo preached to a crowded audience commencing As follows there was we learn from the new testament a certain Rich Man who lived i think in Jerusalem and Bis name was dives. He was Clad in Robes of purple and Linen and fared Sampt Woosly every Day that is he lived High or what May be called die i rated. Now there was also / think in Jero Sjem a certain Begger named Lazaras who asked to be fed Only with the cramps that fell from the Rieb Man s table. He Lay Down at the Gate of his Pallee but the Rich Man would not hear him Bat set the dogs on him. So this poor beggar died and then his sorrows ended for he was carried by Angels into Abraham s bosom. Yes Lazarus went up aloft his spirit soared to heaven where All Good men go when they die. But my Brethren you will a what became of dives the Rich Man 1 Why my friends after a while be died also and i Don t know but he died drunk.
