TO CORRESPOXDESTTS Mii.f.?—'P. M. ITa'.l was the first regularly nominated candidate for Sheriff, by the Democratic parly of Centre county. He had several opponents in ids own party, who ran against him at the election, but he succeeded in defeating them all. Since then, it has become a custom to nominate camlidiitcs for all the county offices, by the action of a Convention, but the admitted corruption of Ihc delegate sy.s:em, loudly calls for a change. The true way. and the mode bcsl\adnpted to prevent fraud, is to make all nominations by a direct vote of the members of a party. The process has been adopted in several counties,and found to infcitrc salisl'tction and promote harmony. 1 15M.W—lour case is not peculiar, and you should not shrinn from its responsibilities. .No man deserves to succeed-, who refuses to labor, labor with 'lands and bead, until the object desired is achieved..

ISP It may be news for the honest Democ racy to learn that the Chairman of their County committee proclaimed from the steps of the Conrad House, on the holy Sabbath day, that he was disinterested in the result of this election. The only men he desired' to see elected, were the candidates lor county commissioners, because that was as "far as his interests were' involved." Truly this is an adhesion to a great party, and a dignified as sertion for the Chairman of a County Com mittee. His interests forsoo th\ For the solicitorship of a board of county commisioners, the Democracy of Centre county, might be sacrificed. Oh ye Gods and little .fishes, we have indeed fallen on strange times, when such men arrogate to themselves the title of politicians. Perhaps we are giving-the subject too much importance. We could not resist to notice it, however, as one of those features which deserve to be treated with scorn and contempt, after the noble excitements of a campaign are over. Who will b...

SSF" What does our friend of the Bericldcr think of the people interfering in the election % That cat story might be reversed now, so as to make it read that the people trod upon their own sals tail, while pussey of the Bcrichler cried most piliously. Fritz, you are a clever fellow, and we admire the boldness with which yon entered the campaign. It might have been imitated with profit by some of your party leaders. And yet we knew that the people would not reject candidates when they came before them as the advocates of genuine principle and pbilanthrophy. Our advice to you now, Fritz, is to turn your attention to the grimalkins in your own household. Turn out the Tom-cats with which you are infested, and perhaps you will succeed in inducing the rest to pur in harmony hereafter. But badinage aside, Fritz. Just remember the adage, ihat truth is mighty, and must prevail. It prevails now, and we honestly believe that some of these days your frankness wi'l induce you to add to the " g...

The Result and its Moral The result of the election, oriiTuesdayJast, in Pennsylvania, is one of those great -pplilical achievements, which, cannot be >passed over without comment, arid we trait'that the influences whichv produced it are permanent. Like all great political triumphs, the victory of Tuesday can be attributed to the "tests hf principles, and not the popularity 'of candidates,' because the nominations of both" parties were composed of.menof real respectability, ltwasnottheebulition of an hour of popular excitement. Not an achievement of passionate outburst, but the clear calm decision of ihepeopte, rnove'd to action by sober judgment and impelled to a great duly, by the pressing necessities'of the limes.

» Wfcat Next. The election is oyer in Pen nnsylvania. Le compton and Anti-Leeempton, with the Tariff question, have been decided upon, and. we trust the people will be satisfied with the decision, but we heed, some question now, to keep orators in action, and patriots in motion. It is not possible that the country-saving";gentlemen even of a village, can remain idle during the winter. The enui would be consuming, and we must therefore have some great issue of fact or fancy to keep up the interest of discussion, and allow the public gas to pass off without doing any material damage.-We must find material for an issue—work for. Congress and the legislature—and we must also find material for the great platform which is to be erected in '60. This platform will be required to be strong—of the best seasoned limber, and constructed in a workmanlike manner, because the people are begining to understand the value and uses of such edifices, and cant be humbuged into buying lumber with t...

Arc We Grateful Harvest and seed-lime are both over. The Harvest was plentiful, and the season' for seeding propitious, but are we grateful"? Do we feel as a people that we-owe a debt of. gratitude that can be liquidated onlyby simple praise ? These are plain questions, but alasfor the answer.: No pajan of praise breaks through the vault of heaven. No nianifesta--tion of gratitude is seen—and we seem to pass on as if we were great within ourselves, and there was none to whom we are indebted.— The great business of life alone occupies our. fl.oughls. Sheu'.s rise ta heaven, but they are for political victories, ana not for the triumphs of merciful goodness. The farmer ploughs, seeds and reaps—but how often does he look to God for the increase? Not often. He is inclined to depend far more upon a patent plough or reaper—but if he fails in his. estimate of a crop, seasons are censured, and climates rebuked. If he succeeds, he appropriates the credit to himself in au address on a...

Periodicals. Godey's Ladey's Book, for November, is on our table, and presents, if possible, a more attractive appearance, both in reading matter and embellishments, than any" preceding number. The Ladey's book is certaily one of the most useful periodicals of the times, and the editor has succeeded in happily blending the useful with the ornamental, the grave and the. gay. Its pages are prolific with useful information, the information which chastenes the heart and improves the head. As a Magazine of art and Science, it has no superior in this country—and as an entertaining parlor periodical, it can be read with pleasure as well as instruction by the old and the young. We regard the monthly visits of Godey to our humble sanctum as the most welcome of all visitors. Arther's Ladies' Home Magazine comes to us for October, laden with the rich productions of its fertile contributors. The editor himself, is a writer of domestic romance, who has gained a wide celebrity, and he assists...
