Spring backward about olairning its rights from Winter, whioh, like sotne old incumbent of a fat ofEee, would like to retain his seat despite the claim oi hie successor. The housewives getting fidgety,longing for warm wcather to accelerate their operations in cleaning and burnishing old mansion, preparatory to the Spring campaign. The husbandmun is wondering "what in tunket" Winter " used up'1 his whent so for, and, to teil the truth, wheat did get an awful scorching thro' the agency of eome of those cold days which were visited upon U8. Acres upon acres will be plowed up and put into Spring grain in this Town this Spring. Fodder in some instanoes getting " rather scace," but no serious lack. - Stock generally has wintered well. - Wheat selk for $1.25, equivalent to aboot 75 ets. Democratie currency, and we find in case of purchase that is the basis upon which our money is reckoned. Town Meeting yesterday, and enclosed ticket elected. Stormy day and slim turn out.

Fiuend Pond :- Knowing that there are timee when a few worde from a heretofm etroog Repablican locality are decidedly interestingand welcome,! have coneluded tu give you the result oí the town cleotion held to-doy. We bave elected the Towd Clerk and Justice of the Peace, besides tieing ihern on Highway Comtnissioner. The Republicana, who are elected, boast of mujoritics rangÍDg frotn one to twelve. This is decidedly encouraging, when wo remember how many difierent wajs the Republicana took to carry the day. Thoy even endeavored to caat of the pollutcd garments of Kepublicanisrn and asRume the clolhing of "Loyalist." Yes, there was no T?epublican ticket in the field in Lima to day, but its oíd roembera cloaked themsolves un dor the ñamo of " Lnyal Ticket," and with thoir petted - bi't not always practiced - theme, thoy fought tho battlo. Although Ibey elucted the most of their ticket wo made some inroads UpöjJ them which they disliko veïy mnch. - Doubtless by anothcr year they will as sume tho name of " Black Lóyal Tickot," as they ffC'l wcll get along without tlie "black" hitched on ia some shape. Wo hope we may hear as good and cheering news frora olher localities soon. R. Supervisor - Morris Thompson, Rep. Clerk - George S. Freer, Dem. Justico - Charles "Webb, Dem.
