The Old Year.was fast drawing to a close: But a few hours and the advent of its successor would be hailed by merry shouts and joyful gratulations, mingling with the merry chime of bells ringing out a noisy welcome from church tower and steeples. Adam Hathaway, a wealthy merchant, sat in his counting room, striking a balance 'between his gains and losses for the year which had nearly passed. From the smile that lighted up his countenance, as he drew hear the end of his task, it might be safely inferred that the result proved satisfactory. He threw down his pen, after footing up the last column, and exclaimed joyfully: rive thousand net gain in one year. That will do very well, very well indeed. If 1 am as well prospered in the vear to come, it will be a 'Happy New Year/ His' meditations were > interrupted by a knock at the doon He opened it and saw standing before' him a man of ordinary,...

The Senate ftuestion, During tlie two weeks breathing spell that our Legislators at Harrisburg are taking, on the Senator question, it may be useful for them to hear from ;the " runjl districts." Do they want to know.; what the]people think?—We give it as our-firm belief that.there are not half a dozen mkti in Susq'uehanna county, of any party, who [are really in favor of Simon Cameron. And to judge from the tone of the public prcssj the same views appear to pervade the State generally. [ It seems, however, that, scarce as Cameron men; are among the people, they are quite numerous at Harrisburg. In other .'words the niembers of, the Legislature (a large number of them ) and their, constituents disagree as to the fitness of Cameron for the Senatorship. | Wc .will not pretend to say what has caused this difference of opinion, but wef think it would be easv to account. for the view that the people at large take of the question.

A Scheme Worth Watching- VTe have information from reliable sources that a gaiije is a-foot at Harrisburg in which it would be well that the People 'of the State should take a h:md. It Was started by a'number of County Treasurers, in a private caucus held at Harrisburg, aud as far as we canilearn,:it has beeli united in by all the incumbents in the respective counties of the State. The- scheme is to put a: Bill thrtjugh the Legislature changing their term qf office frpm what it is at present to three years, and providing!, that those in office shall hold over for the} three yeirs. This would be a vcryprctty i^ay of pj-oviding one's self with a snug berth if it should succeed, but we trust that the People will speaj^out and infonji tire Legislature that they feel competent to decide: this question, and that if they desire the services of any of the incumbents for a longer term than they are now elected for, they will atU*d to jhem at ihe- proper time.—Xorri'ttoum Heboid. 1 - .-...
