THE BljtlJYDERLMt. From the Knickerbocker. Being a fete passages in the life 0/ a shortsighted man. OF all the evils to which mankind are subject, there is none more pitiable in its victim, than an inordinary limitation of vision. I, also, am one of those unfortunate individuals! whose nose is doomed to be -spectacle bestrid' during my mortal existence, and who can discern no object unless it be thrustinto my very face. This, it may readil? be imagined, is at all times disagreeable, but particularly so when the article in question is obnoxious to the senses. O, ve bipeds of oculars unimpaired ; —ye all-seeing gentry!—lit tic do ye know of the thousand evils (that daily accumulate upon our devoted heads and sometimes shouklersl Little do ye ken the numerous faux pas that we of the limited vision are almost constantly being pushed into, to the imminent jeop ardy di our moral andphisical senses, as men of feeling. My misfortunes commenced from infancy: yea, from my veriest in...

Frr-m the London John Bull. Furious attack on Mr. Van Aniiiurglt. ot Astley's Ampatheatrc, by one ot" his Tifcfers. Since Wednesday last the principal tofiic of conversation in Ihe theatrical world 1.1s been the furious attack made upon Mr. Van Amburgh, whose exhibition at Astley's Royal jimpntheatre of lions, tigers, leopards, and other animals of the forest, in the grand zooligical spectaeel entitled the "Lion conquercr of Pompei," has excited within these few days so nxuch public attention. Mr. Van " jtmbuigh has been styled by the philologoi of the above establishment as the brute tamer, and certainl y the. appellation is well applied, as the following daring feat will prove, for never was the courage or the presence of mind of man put to a severer test. From the information obtained b y our reporter yesterday, by an authentic Bourse it appears that on Wednesday last a rehearsal was going on in the circus of the theatre, when Mr. Van Amburgh, wishing one of his tigers to...

To Our Patrons. Alter an absence of nearly three weeks, we are again at our post. Our first duty must be to satisfy our readers that, the irregularity of our publication, arose, not from any decline, eitherin our spirits, or means, occasioned by our late defeat; but purely from the inability of our "hdpsp to push along without our aid. Not having visited our friends for a number of years; and having gone through a campaign, which required more than ordinary care and labor, we reall y felt that no better opportunity could arise for visiting the scenes of our boyhood, than the present, when the system seemed to need a little relaxation form unceasing toil and excitement, which had continued for months. We have now resumed our labors, invigorated and renewed in spirit, and our friends, shall find us, faithful to our task, and trust. We have learned with no little surprise that our political enemies, have cxultin»- ly proclaimed that we had deserted our post, to es-ape the venge...

To our Friends. To such persons, as are willing to rank themselves among our friends, yet who have never extended to us, their kindlv patronage, we have a word to say. Since the election has concluded, and the result has been fairly understood, a few of the faithful, who are bound hand and foot to the will of their little "innocent,"—so completely enslaved that they dare not say, even their prayers (if they ever did so) without his excellency's permission, have slopped our paper, although they are such stricklers about persecution for opinions sake. They have, on all occasions, admitted that in all mailers, we attended to our duty, as punctually, and as faithfully, as any of our cotemporaries --nevertheless they say "stop my paper. Of course we have done so—as we are thankful for small favors, we thank them and if there be any more of the same bi! gotted politicians, who have neglected, to do so, we will thank them to go and do likewise. We like much to have good honest "sob...

The Repairs- We were anxiously hoping that we mi ght be enabled to inform the public, that the repairs of the canal would bs com plcted.and that the whole distance, to Hollidaysburg would be navigable on this day. Wc regret however to be obliged to re. cord our disappointment. The original d image, was nearly ippaired, and eveiy thing gave evidence that our hope would he realized. Unfortunately, we . have to rciord another disaster which will stop the navigation to Hollidaysburg, at least two weeks longer. On Saturday of last week, it was discovered ihat the water had made a passage under the end of the abutment between the liock and the weir of the dam. at the dam above town, and that no possible power could hinder the falling of the abutment, partiall y if not entirely. The supervisor took means at once to draw the water from the dam, and will immediately organize an sufficient force to repair the difficulty. We learn that it is impossible to assign a cause for the defect....

-J Loco loco Decency. Our contemporary of the U. S. Gazelle publishes the annexed extract from the Franklin Democrat. He seems to be astonished at its character. If he were ncquantcd with its author, he would not express any astonishment. It is in fact as good a specimen of decency as could be expected from the source. We have in. sert^d the extract in order that the citizens) of this county can see what kind of weapons that party use, which has groaned so much in spirit, because, we proved, as far as proof can go, what was true. This, tliey will see is bare assertion, without ever any attempt at evidence. The truth is, the article is characteristic of the party, and we do not look for any thing better from such a fountain. "Like master—like man." "Joseph Ritncr himself is a fraudulent knave, and so is the notorious blackleg Stevens, so is Fenn, so is Benedict, the Kensington th ef, so is John H.

"The wars are o'er." It would seem that our opponents, at home, where they KNOW a thing or two, have concluded that the tocsin of war might as well be silenced. It was sounded with terrible clamor, when the first note of success was heard, but when its echo came back like the celebrated Irish echo with an answer of 'come on iWDuff:' they wisely concluded that the least said was soonest mended, Well we are satisfied. It is not our friends, nor our party, to whom the character cf their candidate belongs; he is all entirely 'their own' and we have nothing to regret, about the matter except his success, and Pennsylvavania's abasement. We may not be a proper judge in the matter, but this we will say, a fair and just examination into the evidence may prove the "innocent" injured—and itnwj not. We think the honest and reflecting portion of our citizens desire, that the mary charges made against a successful candidate—and charges of such criminal character —should at least be met by...

The JYetJO Constitution-Canal Board. When we left our desk, and our labors, three weeks since, we were under the belief that the new Constitution, had been defeated; although, as we then said, we voted for it, considering it much more democratic than the old one. We now, are however enabled to say, that it has carried by a majority of 1177. We rejoice at it. There are many, very many advantages which must result from its adoption the most important of which, we consider, that which entirely disrobes the executive of official patronage—we say entirely be-•baiise, the expression of the people has been direct and unequivocal. The 7th Section of Article 11 gives the Governor only the power to appoint a Secretary. While 8th Sec. of the Article VI contains these expressive words. "All officers v;V*« ejection or appointment is not prot>/'4*«Mjg tiiis ennstitation, shall he cl-ried or appointed as shall be directed bij -Amc." Could any thing be more plain. The truth is that n...

ACCIDENT On Saturday, one of the Boat drivers on the Canal was severel y injured, by the running away of his horses. He lost his seat, and was drawn furiously through the street, at least 200 yards. One of his legs was completel y shattered from his knee to his thigh; the bone being broken in several places, the sinews and llesh however, are not broken. His head and shoulders, are much bruised and lacerated. His life was undoubtedly, preserved, by the'muddir.ess of the " street Had not the street been unusually soft] his brains must have been dashed out ere half the distance was passed. The name ol the lad we did not learn. It is said he is from Newark, N. Jersey. ANOTHER "REVOLUTIONARY" GONE—Our valued cotemporary J. L. Slcntz, of the Bedford Inquirer, has 'revolutionized' the state of his household. Although he failed to elect his Governor, we rejoice to see that he has succeded in the choice of his "lady love," and though failing to join in a shout of victory he has taken...

Remember the Poor. "W hen the icicle is over your door. That is the time to remember the poor." OLD SONG. "Cold winter is a coming." As the wind whistles without, let not those who snjoy the comforts of plenty, forget, those who are exposed to the biting frost, and bleak winds of penuiy, and want. Charit y is like mercy. l'~T , T"T 't is twice bless'd; I. blesseth him that gives and him that takes; I is mightiest in the mightiest." Many, who by mis-management, or perhaps mis-conduct, have failed to lay by anything for a rainy day, arc forced to beg, first of their fellow men, the privi lege to toil; or failing in that, may be, for a crust of bread, or some tattered garment to cover their limbs from the searching blast of a winter's day. Let not the hungry pass your door unfed—nor the naked unclothed. We know not what a day nor an hour may bring forth. You, who to-day are clothed in purple and fine linen to-morrow may, mourn in sackcloth and ashes your own neediness. Be chari...
