On Tuesday last, after our paper was printed, we received the Official vote
of Richhill township, for the election of Saturday the 11th inst., which was
as follows:

ASSEMBLY. - John M. Stockdale,      120
            R. K. Campbell,         104

COMMISSIONER. - George Sellers,     163
                John Reynolds,       26
                Uriah Spragg,        15
                James Seaton,         2
                Solomon Hickman,      2

TREASURER. - Obediah Vancleve,       64
             Jacob Lemley,          127
             Henry Shriver,          23

AUDITOR. - Justus F. Temple,         71

DISTRICT ATTORNEY. - W. H. Babbit,  111
SURVEYOR. - George F. Wolf,         170

It will be perceived that this return makes some slight corrections in the
vote of Richhill township, as published in our last.

With the official returns of Richhill the aggregate vote for the several
candidates in the county, will stand as follows:

ASSEMBLY. - Stockdale,            1,150
            Campbell,             1,027

COMMISSIONER. - George Sellers,   1,080
                James Seaton,       386
                Uriah Spragg,       288
                Solomon Hickman,    244
                John Reynolds,      143

TREASURER. - Obediah Vancleve,      791
             Jacob Lemley,          700
             Henry Shriver,         627

DISTRICT ATTORNEY. - W. H. Babbit,  765

COUNTY SURVEYOR. - Geo. F. Wolf,    949

AUDITOR. - Justus F. Temple,        791

It will be seen that there was a large vote polled - nearly 2200.  This,
considering the weather, the busy season, and the backward condition of the
corn crops, was a remarkably full vote of the party, and will doubtless give
the utmost satisfaction.

More Improvements.

We are pleased to see that Mr. Daniel Flick is busily engaged in the
erection of a fine three story brick business house on the lot immediately
west of B. Campbells large brick.  The cellar walls are already fast rising
up under the go-ahead energy of Mr. Flick.  Mr. A. Wilson, also, is pushing
forward a fine building immediatetly adjoining the above, and in a few
months we may expect to see another beautiful block added to the late
improvements of out thriving town.  We wish the most abundant success to all
such undertakings, and hope the enterprise of these gentlemen may soon be
imitated by others of our citizens.
