pale, and trembled like au aspen leaf,
Ifearing that those whom he had slan
.4ered, maligned and villifiecl, would
pour out the indignation of their wrath
upon him in the shape of sundry blows
and kicks. To avert the coming storm;
to ward off the castigation that he so
justly merited at the hands of those he
had betrayed, he was compelled to lie,
and did most earnestly and vociferous
ly assert that he had not been in Mill
heim at all, and consequently the sto
ry of his travels as published in ourlast
week's issue was false, and were the
imaginings of the fertile brains of the
But on the second visitation of his
friends he was comp elled to acknowl
edge that he had been in Millheim.—
This put another phase,npon the whole
matter, and those whoge names were
given in the colloquy between MEEK
and his Penus Valley confidents,began
to look upon him as the betrayer of
his friends, and the report of his trav
els as given by us, as substantially true.
And although we were threatened to
be knocked to that country that is hot
ter than Mississippi ; no harm did be—
fal us, from the fact that, together, we
weigh 360 pounds.
With this preface, let us proceed to
;give a few more facts in relation to
.MEEK'S travels, and the causes which
;induced him to be a candidate for re ,
.election. ".
EverYbedy knows JAMES BURNS,a
mailiarly called . " Jut." Well, some
three or four weeks since, "Jr.u," the
Zistinamished lobbyist and Legislative
borer paid Bellefonte a visit. No man
knew his business. Ostensively he had
bone. Secretly, however; he housed
hiMself with - I'. ^ (z.3IEEK and a few
er chosen spirits that always can be
trusted when money is to drop into
their itching palms. And oh, how
itchy ! They could hardly wait to hear
the toiley JAMES divulge his plans. To
be in Harrisburg next winter would be
-a "big thing." Huge schemes were in
contemplation. Money would neces
sarily flow free as the waters in the
mountaqtrook : but it would require
somebody sharp to aid the distinguish
ed lobbyist to turn it to account. In
his opinion MEEK was sharp and must
be sent back for the third time. In
connection with this, the delegate to
the Democratic State Convention must
•go for CASS and not for PACKER. The
2toiiiination of PACKER wo'd never do.
In accordance with this plan,so secret
ly and so nicely laid, the delegate did
go to Harrisburg and voted for CASS
every time. But MEEK was hedged in
on every side. He had not thought of
being a candidate until urged by his
partner, JAMES the wise. He was par
tially committed to Mr. LIPTON, Dr.
DOBBINS and others. They were in
his way. Impossible for him to be nom
inated along with so many others from
Bellefonte. But with an eye, like JU
DAS of old, to the money bags of the
corrupti6n ring at Harrisburg, he was
not long in perfecting his plan. Dr.
TCPLLER must be disposed of, betray
ed, villified and sold out, if needsbe.
The trip to Penns Valley waS plan
ned, and Ithizk, burning with' ambi
tion, and filled withingratitude,sharp
er than a serpents tooth, he started on
his journey. What PETER did while
on his pilgrimage was graphically por
trayed by us in our lastissue. We did
not give h but all we gave Was
true, The men with whom PETER: con
versed, and the honest Democrats of
Penns Valley, can easily understand
why he Would become indignant at the
very idea of Col. LOVE being a candi
date for the Legislature. LOVE for
the Legislature ! "a Loop fossil," as
GRAY was pleased to term him—was,
in his estimation, supremely ridiculous.
The Col. must, therefore, be throttled
—nipped 'in the bud. It took argu
ment to convince. Judge HOSTERM.A.N;
hence the long tirade on Co]. LOVE.
Will Col. LOVE; believe MEEK, or
Judge HOSTER3LiN ? Judge HosTEEt—
MAN, honorable, upright man, as we
are wont to believe he is, .mill say to
day, that the conversation between. him
and PETER, T.S given by us, is substan
tially true., Deny it, PETER, if you
dare, and we will overwhelm you with
Dr. DOBBINS, 3, H. "LIPTON and
CUBIST, KELLER were all Bellefont
ers. If either of them should be nom!!
Mated it would give too many nomi
nees to Bellefonte, and thus ruin PE
TERS chance, and blast the last hope
of his friend JI31;" the lobbyist.—
Hence his vile-abuse vf Dorms,
TON Rnd KELLER. Here, Again, - we .
place Judge llontiorA's , on the Wit, ,
ness stand, , and he will say that there-.
port given 'bras, of NEER. - 's abuse cf.
the three men above named., Is sub
stan daily true. •
What he saiolorihem,"we
giving it as his, •knciming tliat it 'could
not injure Dr. Dciv - BiNs &0.., with the
Republicans, for no Reptibligan in the
county - would believe PgREB. G. MEEK
on his oath.
With PETtit ' , Paced to the wall, and
with iliest I - lets : before you, we say set

yourselVes, mad do not complain'of us
for liiibftiing you fairly, of limes

tpiibit of these men we published, not

DoBBINS and others,were gentlemen,
we would have been compelled per
force to believe the opposite, upon
the : pound that, "A liar is .not to. be
believed- when he does tell the truth."
Therefore, we say again, that . it was
PETER that aimed his Venomous
shafts at these candidates, and not
us. Well maycach of these men ex

The facts, as given! by us, in regard
to his conversation in Nillheini, and
the number of men attacked by him,
are substantially true. We dare and
defy him to deny the main points
Why did he not deny the facts.,as stat-
ed by us, in the last number of the
We did not attack the private char.-
acter of PETER; we simply exposed
his betrayal of his friends and fellow
partizans. He faied to deny the state

loose from hell, attacked our private
character, to hide his own rottenness,
crime and corruption. But this is

ley on Friday last, and repeated his
slander on JAS. H. LIPTON, and : , we
can prove it. We have nct space for
further developments; but we have
unmasked the hypocrite, and left him.
in his native ugliness. Honest Demo-
crats, what do you think now of P.G.
MEEK, the slanderer of your friends
and his—the convicted liar—the
treacherous villain that can smile,and
murder while he smiles, and Wet 'his
cheeks with artificial tears, and frame
his face to all occasions ?
We care not for his slander. He
has villified better men than we. The
martyred LINCOLN ; the heroic and
successful GRANT; A. G. CURTIN, his
friend and liberator from the den in
which his treason placed him, and
every honest christian minister, and
christian institution in the land, have
been more or less maligned by this
vile and contemptible scoundrel.
If honest men in the Dencoeratie
party itinst - ble - thruSt.: aside to. make
room for stich a\man - as PETER; and if
the honest masses of the Democratic
party will submit to his dictation,and
the dictation of the Court louse ring,
then we say, with BYRON,
"Life's a poor play'r; then 'play out the play,
Ye villains and above all, keep a sharp eyo
Much less on what you do than what you say:
Be hypocritical, be cautious, be
Not what you seem, but what you see.
MEEK says "the Senior Editor will
want but one notice from the Watch
man." No decent man would want
more than one notice in such a low,
vulgar sheet. Before Mr. MEEK gives
us that notice, however, we give him
warning, for the sake of his Amily, to
get his friend LIPTON to hide away the
Record of the Criminal Courts of Cen
tre county. Do this, not only for your
own sake, but for the love you bear
some of your very near and dear rela
tives. Oh, that record ! Perhaps a
good dumpling would cool you down.
MEEK says we squandered our wife's
means. Will MEEK please tell his
readers, and the people of Centre Co.,
what he did for his wife ? Will he tell?
Shame, MEEK. Oh! shame,
A IL&N who commenced his career
as a churn peddler, pick-pocket
. and
dealer in counterfeit money, is nofthe
man to call his neighbor a thief.
Meek Proved a Slanderer by his Own
• SILERLPFALTY. —As the time ap
proaches for holding the County,Oon
vention, it is more than right to
discuss cursorily, the qualifications of
the different gentlemen for the same,
and also for the different offices with
in the gift of the people of Centre
county. By the way we have plenty
of candidates. Will they all render
full service for the compensation they
are to receive? Or do they , think the
pay mere than service rendered?
Something, sir, that makes men so
greedy for office. How they do bore
the good .people, even to intolerance,
and how basely -one candidate mis
represents his fellow cons pe titor.
They are net brotherly. One office
seeker will assert that his most for
midable competitor will run as an in
dependant candidate—should the for
mer be successful in convention? An
other proclaims lone and loud that
his opponent. has been at the public
crib long enough, and so on through
the whole catalogue of charges, false
hoods.and crime. Magnanimous men.
The above communicatim - 1, copied
from the Watcheivan of last Week, and
fairly presumed to be - mitten at about
the same time, and containing allega
tions about the same upon which the
editorial 'of orir last -reek's issue was
based, anti coming 'from the same lo
cality, or neighborhood, shows that our
reporters have not misrepresented the
Acts in relation to the conduct of Mr.
MEEK and Others of ; the _Democratic
So far as ne . are 'concerned, the opin
ions of these Democr.ts of each other,
do not .affect us, except that, as illus
trating the Sact that men who descend
ate' the lowest, blackguardism in fight
ling each ether for nominations, ought
not to be regarded when they use the
, Same lies and billingsgate against their
'opponents. • P. GRAY MEEK has so
long been in the habit of using the low
est, dirtiest, falsest, and meanest of
epithets, alike unsupported by facts or
anything like an argument worthy the
name, that when he found it his inter
est to go out and secure a nomination,
involving the defeat of men he had
pledged himself to assist and support,
he could not think of any other way of
accomplishing his object, than to at
tack, personally, and malign the men
whose nominations he did not desire.
The contemptible slanders heaped
J. 11. LIPTON and Capt. JNO 11. Mort-
BISON, and published by us in our last
week's issue,and the truth of which he
dare not deny, are so palpable that even
his own correspondent, .writing from
the scene of his efforts, has shown up
the just indignation of MEEK's sup
porters there, and proved the truth of
all we said about his travels.
By publishing what he intended to
be privately - aced; - andinaking -known
the facts of the Deniocratic canvas= for
nominations, we have, indeed, made
some sensation,and incurred some crit
icism ; but if Democrats thus slander, -
abuse, villify each other, why kick up
a row when we make it known ? Nut
one of the allegations made by _NEER:
in his travels, .have ever been made by
HoWeyer,. we. have published scarce
one-half of what we have received, on
the best of 'both Democratic and Re
publican authority, as to the abuse of
each other by these Democratic aspi
rants, and we still mean to tell what
they say of each other. All that the
correspondent of the Watchman says,
is true, and much more is true:
MANY of our citizens being carious
to know how Brown, of the Bellefonte
Republican, takes his awful castigation
iu this week's .Watchman, and who
are expeeting'to hear of personal vio
lence and libel suits, will be surprised
to hear that he only laughs at it. A
brave and sensible man, that Brown.
• Quid _NUnc.
The above we -copy from a. spicy
daily paper, published by the KINSLOE
BRO'S, in Lock Haven.
Cowhide MEEK! Bring an- ac
tion against MEEK for libel ! What
folly! He is already a convicted liar.
And, to cowhide him, you would :hare
to catch him first. Before his paper
was 3irculated, hb left the town, and
went into Pennsvalley to prevail on the
men there to lie him out of his dirty
betrayal of LIPTON : DOBBINS and KEL
LER, aryl since he returned, we uncl•.,r
stand he has kept himself under his
wife's bed. Cowhide MEEK, forsooth!
No; he has not character enough for
us to meddle with in that way. We
will simply tell the truth on him, and,
by so doing, "place a whip in the hand
of every honest man tolash•the scoun
drel naked through thttitrld._'•
MEEK talks about jail-birds. Has he
forgotten the time when Capt. A. B.
SNYDER arrested him, charged with
the highest crime known to the law—
treason against the Government? Has
the contemptible little copperhead
traitor forgotten how the tears, as large
as"fall pipins,"rolled down his cheeks,
as he left, our town' to be incarcerated
in a cell in Harrisburg? Has he for
gotten--ungrateful wretch—that he
owes his liberty, and all he has, to the
Republican party—A. G.. CURTIN, and
others,whom he has since so shamefully
abused, betrayed and libeled?
MEEK says wego. •aduated in the gut
ter. The trouble with MEEK - is, he
never graduated anywhete. Brought
forth in iniquity, trained from, his
youth to practice falsehood, and- hy
pocrisy he has reached that point in
the life of the villain and outcast, that
he has not sufficient brains or charac
ter left to gradUate. even from the
schools of vice. A lickspittle, a tool
and a vagabond he must, therefore,
forever remain. His hand against
everybody, and everybody's hand
against him.
A 31..A.N who attempts to shoot off
his finger, or cripple himself, so as to
enable him to• evade the draft, is not
the man to call his neighbor a coward.

As the Watchman has publish ed. the
simple assertion that the sale Of this
paper was the best evidence-he-had to
produce, to convince' the:. people of
" Radical hard times," and .as the
country is full of false rumors in rela 7
tion to the facts that led to the sale,by.

if MEEK. can make any political capi
tal out of them, he is welooine . : • -
The paper and office was purchased'
from Mr. KURTZ at '55,•000 nearly a
year ago, by the MeSsrs, KIN SLO EEL
They gave to BLAN CHARD ) BEAVER )
and the others, a judgment note for .
$5,000, and were to receive $l5OO cash
to pay to Kurrz,and the endorsement
of their notes for •$3,500 payable in
four years. The first $l5OO was, not .
paid, however, but about $9OO. of it
was furnished, and Mr. BLANCHARD
endorsed another note for the balance;
un which suit was brought and judg
ment obtained,and bail entered for stay
of eiecution.
. .
The men owning the $5,000 jutrament
held it back, and negotiations were
opened with us to merge the papers.
We offered to undertake the *payment
of the four notes for the Press_. office,
allowing them to remove the prOperty
cf the old . Advertiser offiee.whith- had
been put into the concern at a valuation
of $l5OO.
Several meetings were held, but no
reply was given to our proposition. On
Monday morning, the 12th inst. - , how
ever, Mrs. KINSLOE, mother of:. the
proprietors, entered up a judgment of
over $l5OO, issued execution, and lev
ied on the office. The endorsers then
entered up their $5,000 judgment and.
issued, and also sent it to Lock - Haven
and levied on the Quid Hunc, which,
being appraised under KINSLOES'pIea
of the $3OO exemption, was returned
as worth less than that sum, and re
turned to them. The propertsi here,
was sold in bulk, on the 19th inst., for
$3,100, and will be held by the endor
sers, and the paper go on.
We presume this is a temporary ar
rangement, and the National, will be
sold by its present owners.. We regret
we cannot buy so extensive an estab
lishment just now,but will try to Make
up for that by increasing the size, and
improving the value of the

party. Who went into Pennsvalley at
the bidding of the great lobbyist, and
betrayed, vilified and sold' out Dr,
LirroN ? MEEK, thou art the man.
Deny it if you dare. You are a mean
er wretch than Judas Iscariot ever
was. Had you lived in his day, you
would have taken' his place, and be
trayed the world's Redeemer for half

ASA PACKER, like the Hon. Henry

difference being that ,on the Demo

England and New England politics ?
WE do not like to throw mud and
filth; but, before P. G. MEEK comes
at us with that threatened crush er of
his, we would. in a friendly way, ad
vise him to clean up his own, and his
family record. Was ever 'stench so

A MAN who chinks more or less
whiskey every day, who has so little
character and self-respect as to get
drunk, go to a negro ball, act the black
guard and get kicked out, is surely not
the man to assail his neighbor's char
acter for sobriety and decency.
MEEK talks about thieves. Will he
please tell his readers what he stole
from GEO. W. MEEK? Will he dare
tell who stole, or was charged with
stealing a certain horse in Half Moon ?
MEEK says we are poor. He that
spate as man never spate, hath said,
"Blessed are the poor for they shall
inherit the earth."

The next Fall session of this Institution
will commence on Monday, the 30th 11::y of
August, and continue sixteen weeks. t'ttr
dents to report at the College the preceed
ing Thursday. The charge for the session
is $7O, including Instruction, Boarding.
'Washing 'and Fuel. Lights. Furniture and
Books to be provided by the Student.
The Spring Term of 24 weeks, will close
on the 29th of the present month Though
the number of students has been small, the
experiment of combining Study with Work,
has been successful; this success being due
as much to the absence of the confusion
caused by a crowd of new and undrilled stu
dents at the opening, as to the energy and
cheerful co-operation of the small number on
the roll. Tho aid has been so hearty and
effective, that this public mode is gladly em
braced to express thanksfor the support thus
afforded. With light working details, full
spring crops hare been put into the ground,
the garden has been attended' to, much or
namental planting done, and some other im
provements effected. At equal pace, the
studies and ditties of the College proper have
been carried on ; and now, at the close of
the term, the pleasant conviction is experi
enced, that mind and body can both he
healthfully and wefully trained sound mor
al habits impres , cd, and young men of prac
tical science, as well as sound scholarship
in general literature, sent forth to the work
of life.
This institudon makes no parade of the long
list of 'ologies,'onomies and'ographies which
grace some catalogues;eneither does it boast
of any incredible number of professors- ac
tual.,expected, special, honorary and ocea
=sional, but with a sufficient number of com
petent instructors, all of whom aro capable
in their respective departments, and citizens
of the State, it undertakes to give sound
instruction in every branch of literature,sci
once and practical art pertaining to its class,
which any father may desire for his son,
and which that son may come prepared to
receive. Beyond this no promise is made.—
This shall be fulfilled.
Not many citizens of the State know of
the existence of this Institution, and very
few are aware of its large capacity and adap
tedness to meet the great educational want
of the day—that of imparting thoro' knowl
edge in all the useful branches, practically
as well as theoretically. The Trustees and•
officers, feeling the effect of this genmal
want of information and appreciation, have
decided to invite and even challenge inspec
tion of the institution on the part of the pub
lic. Accordingly,
A HARVEST RECEPTION will be held at the
College the last week of the present term,
from Monday the 26th till Saturday the 31st
of July. During that time the building and
graft:ids will be open to visitors who may de
sire to know the nature and condition of the
institution, and inform themselves as to its
future prospects. Especially will. old grad
uates, the parents of present students, per
sons desirous of sending students the nest
term, and editors of papers, be. welcome.—
P lain fare and clean beds will be provided
without charge, and every effort made to
render the visit agreeable.
