DmsSm oF THK fot m,
In another column will be fonud the proceed
ings of a meeting held in Middle Y oodberry
Township, Bedford County, oa Tuesday the Bth
iust., in favor of annexation to Blair County.
The meeting was composed, wo are informed, of
not a very groat many of the citizens of that
Township, aud they mostly, have very great ex
pectations of being relieved from the high t xc
of Bedford County, although nt the Democrat
ic meeting cn last Monday nigb', the taxes of
Blair County were stated to he much higher
than those of Bedford 1 The reasons set forth
in the revolutions of this meeting are fallacious.
It is not correct thut Hollidaysburg is their
nearest market The Town of Hopewell in
Bedford County is much nearer and affords a
good market for Woodberry and other sections
of the country. It is r.ot true that Bedford,
the County sca\ is 20 miles from Middle Wood
berry Township, and Hollidaysburg only or.e
half the distance. Ftor* a large portion of
that Township it is about equal distance to
Bedford or' Hollidaysburg, and the roads about
ii:c sinre. It is not correct that all the people
of Middle Woodberry desires annexation to
Blair—'here being many in that Township
sgaio*r the movement. Many favor this dis
nreniberment of our county, f>>r the purpose of
recuring a new County at some future day, with
Woolburry as the County seat. The plan is,
to have Middle Woodberry now sfi i.'ken off and
attached to Blair, and then in a year or two to
get up a movement in favor of a new County,
parts to be taken off Blair, Huntingdon and I
Bedford! This is now urged in that Township
iu favor of tbe present movement. There are j
no good reasons why the present proposed dis- >
member merit should take place and Messrs.
Sel.oll, Williams ai d Walker, will place the i
I ropier estimate tqn-n the request in the R."so- '
The idea of again dismembering our County >,
is so evidently unjust, and would bo so detri
mental to the interests of the people of tbe !
whole County, that they deemed it not neces
sary to remonstrate against it, believing that j
the Legislature would pass it by as the idle j
wind, and take no utice of the request.
Rut, liowcver,ince a few interested persons, j
mine of whom think they might have axes to j
grind in Blair County, are making such des
perate exertions in favor of the dismember
meat, and are flooding the Legislature with pe
titions in i's favor, we would eall on the pro- i
pie of the different townships to got up remon
strances at ouce, end LUTQ them signod by ev
ery citiieri, and forward 'hem to the Legisla
ture, ne to the Seudte and one to the House,
without delay. Several Remonstrances are
this week in different parts of the town, and
(re being signed by hundreds of people from
very part of the County, who are here attend" i
ing Court. Everybody in 'be County, outside |
of Middle Woodbcrry, opposes the movement.
1' is not a matter of polities, tut <>f vital in
leresi to the whole County.
Bedford County has been cut down, time and
again. All tbe surrounding Counties have
been formed nut of her territory; her limits are
quite moderate. her territory is uiouutainous
and .sparsely populated, and it would be ex
treme injustice to have nearly all of the goo i
territory left, stricken off. We are *l-0 large
ly iu debt, no matter by whom created, (some
*>12,000,) for the benefit of all parts of the
County, and it would be gross wrong to dis
member our county under these circumstances
tr any other. Let the Legislature trout the
matter as it deserves and tLose in favor of the
dismemberment, and u future new County, wiil
have to wait a long time to sec it accomplished.
Iu a b'.c Democratic Scnafotial caucus, Mr.
Bigtcr, it is understood, vpokc of the suffering
iidnstril mteres's, and uiges increased du
ties. Ho said the public deb', now $64,000,-
000, would be $100,000,000 by the 30 hof
June, 1860, without t'.e §30,000,000 propo
sed to be sdlvd to the foreign intercourse fund,
looking to the purchase of Cuba.
Secretary Cobb sent a report into the lower
House of Congress, on Thursday, in regard to
tho condition of the national finances. He
recommends a reduction f tue national expen
ditures, and requests that authority bo given
hi in for the reissue "1 treasury notv., and ad
vise# immediate action on the .subject.
IRON CITY COLLEGE.—Tue rapid growth
anl extended popularity of this School, is the
result of the confidence it his inspired by its
fair dealing and thorough teaching.— Presbyle

Three hundred nnd fifty-seven students are
in attendance at this time, making it the hig
i-st and most popular Business S.hool ever or
ganized in tbe United States.
The Locofoeos had a dull and epiritiess
uieetiug ou Moods; night, to appoint delegates
to t!ie State Couvention. When we entered
tbo room, a thing, with a downcast countenance
wes attempting to make a speech, the whole of
which WHS devoted to ourself. We will attend
to him in our next. A tuau by the nuuie of
Bear , from Somerset, was called on, but as this
is the season when that animal is bouud up in
some old hollow log, sucking bis paw, he, too,
showed that he was good at that kind of work,
and was fifteen minutes in telling the people
that he had nothing to say, except that he was
out of polities, aud was honest in his opposition
to the Lecompton fraud last summer, which
was rather hard for Loeofoecisin in this atmos
phere to swallow, as they bad supported old
Mr. Buchanan in all bis iniquities. Shannon
followed, in favor of the K snc-l'olk-swindle
free-trade Tariff of 1846, which discriminated
against Protection to Pennsylvania interests,
he a! so advocated the annexation of Cuba, nig
gers, war, piracy, filibustering, buccaneering,
aud all. The resolutions wero then stuttered
out , and c-u:- friend, the gallant Major Tate,
followed, in his usml toploftical, buncomb,
tlood and thunder s'yle, in favor of Cuba,
Central and South America. He said he was
tie first man in this great and ge torious coun
try, who was in favor oj faking Cuba ! The
Major is great on -'No pent-up Utica contracts
our powers, the whole boundless continent is
ours." Hut our compositors state that there's
too much copy on hand, and we will have to
stop for the present.
MEW TAX LAW.
There is a law before the Legislature, chang
ing the mode of tax collecting throughout tire
State. Many of the people of this County are
in furor of the change. The following is the
UKst important section. We may publish the
whole act hereafter:
SEC 2. Tint IT *hali bo the du'y of tbe
couuty treasurer of each county, aftei he shall
receive the duplicates nf assessment from the
county commissioners as hereinafter provided,
to give at least thirty days' notice, by weekly
publications in one or tuore newspapers printed
in the county, for the purpose of collecting and
receiving State and county taxes; anil it shall i
be tbe duty of tbe said treasurer to attend ut j
leas' two dr\s in each township and borough
in the county, for the purpose aforesaid, previ- !
otis to the twelfth day of July in each year: !
and he shall give receipts for taxes iu all cases
when required by the person paying tbe same: \
Provided , Tint if any person stnll, on or be !

such person shall ho entitled to a deduction of j
five per centum on the amount thereof paid for j
S;ate purposes, which shall be in lieu of the
abatement of five per centum allowed the couu
ty by the forty-second section of lhi, act to re
duce the State debt, <t cetera, pis -ed the twen- '
ty-ninth dry of April, one thousand eight hun- I
dred and forty-four.
We owi 1 the attention of our eitizbus to the !
advertisement of Mr. ]). O. SHOEMAKER, who i
lias trken charge of the School heretofore un-]
der the control of the Rev. G. \Y . Aughin-;
baugh. Mr. Shot maker comes well recom 1
mended, and we doubt not will give general
satisfaction. A good school should be sup
ported by our people, and we lu-pe this one
wiil be well sustained.
The English news published this week briefly i
noted the decease of Mrs. Wordsworth, tbe
widow f the well known poet. The Lond n !
"There was something mournful in the lin
gering of this aged lady—blind, deaf, and be
reaved in her latter years; but she was not
; ruournful any more than she was insensible.— :
; Ago did not blunt htr feelings, nor deaden Iter j
j interests in the eve-uts of the day. It seems
. not so very long ago that she said (hat the j
I worst of living in such a place (as the Like !
i district) was its making oue unwilling to go. j
: It was too beautiful to let one be ready to leave
I it. Within a few years tbe beloved daughter
, was gone, and then tbe aged husband, and then
the son in-law, and then the devoted ftir.d,Mr.
; Wordsworth's publisher, Mr. Moxon. who paid
! l is duty occasionally by the side of her chair ;
then she became blind and deaf. Still her
cheerfulness was indomitable."
WASHINGTON, Feb. 11.
A le.ter from Paris Ly the last si earner,
from a prominent source states on information
| received from Madrid, that it is not probable
Mr. Preston will be received is United States
Minister, but if he should be received, the first
intimation from him relative to the purchase of
j Cuba would be deemed sufficient ground for
giving him h's passports. Our government,
i however ii net in receipt of any official infor
' aiitioD from Spain ou (bat subject.
It is stated in wrll info tried circles that tbe
| reinstatement, by Gen. Miramon, of Zu'oaga,
iu the presidency of M-xico, was at the instance
! of France and England, who havj an especial
: interest ir. his adiuini->tration, in connection
with the debts due there governments.
The : (Foot of the vote ia the House to-day,
laying 'lie Nebraska contested election case on
'lie table, is to continue Judge Ferguson iu his
' seat as delegate from that Territory.
The impression prevails th?.t the proposition
i to place nion-y at the command of the Presi
i dent to negotiate for the acquisition of Cuba
will pass the Senate, hut will be Jefoated by a
large majority in the House.

Sw. .1— ngpueu aner tv ins s There wis I
consequently some d fit miry in carrying thei
bill for the admission of Oregon, but it was
accomplished cn Saturday evening, the final ;
vote iu the House having boeu 114 to 103. ,
The federal Union consists now of thirty-three j

The preponderance of the free States is
yeatiy getting stronger Kansas must bo ad
mitted before long, and then will Noon follow
Nebraska, and two or three other States, in none
of which slavery can be allowed. There is no
near prospect of uow slave States. The
Southerners have wasted their strength in en
deavors to increase slave lenitory by roinc j
grand coup, such as the conp>uisory game ts ic-cJ j
in Kansis, or such as the acquisition of Cuba j
or of parts of Mexico or Central America.— j
They have neglected to colonize the far South- I
west territory, where cew slave States might i
grow up quietly and without serious opposition j
troiu the North. In the meantime, the urea of I
freedom has been expanding. Since 1810,
when Florida uud Texas were admitted, there
have been no new .-1 ire States, aud yet, since
then, the free States of lowa, Wisconsin, Cali
fornia, Minnesota anl Oregon have been re
ceived ioto the Uuion.
There are manifest defects in tbe Constitu
tion of Oregon. The clause m regard to ne
groes is unnecessarily severe, and that in re
gal dto suffrage absurdly aud dangerously
liberal. But these are faults that will proba
ble bo remedied after a while. Certainly, as
Oregon gets older, she wi;l see the mischief
done by her extreme liberality towards foreign
ers. U was the confidence of this felt by members
of tho opposition that led to tbe passage of tho
I bill, and we must congratulate our readers on
the admission of Oregon, in view of the advan-
I tage iu having a uew State government on the
Pacific, aud new free State men iu Congress,
! and in getting a question settled that has si
I ready consumed a great deal of time.— Phi/a.

News from Port au Prince has just come to

the Emperor Suulouque, who, it i* stated, had

republic had been fully established, with Gene

A letter from Jacmel, dated 18 h u!f., and

"1 have this day the pleasure of informing
you that the great events of your country have
taken n favorable turn. Gen. Geffrard has

Another letter from Port au Prince, dated j
i Jan. 14, say s :
"It is uow three weeks since the Berth of the

their movements, but after arriving withiu six

of between ten and twelve thousand men, against

trying to see if the old man will abdicate, so
as to hinder the sacrifice cf the lives of his
countrymen; but he seems resolute to defend
the ei'y. Great preparations were being tu*d
for the last week. 1 saw no less than six wag
on loads and about thirty donkeys, loaded with
gunpowder, pass tuy duor for the Fort. Wo are
momentarily expecting a meeting of tha two ar
mies; Low thiugs will cud, God only knows—
but up to the present foreigners and their pro
perty are respected. All plucos of business arc
closed; uothing but arms, &e., are seen iu the
streets, and ovcry person walks cut with pistols
and sword. Tho transport ship Meibouruo is
still here; no arrival of any man-of-war vessels
r.s yet. The towns that have raised the revo
lution are placed under blockade, and all com
munication cut off. It was last night tbat Gen.
Geffrard arrived withiu two miles of this place.
He sent a deputation wiih a flig of truce, but
the despatches were refused by the General of
the Fort. The alarm guus wera fired the day
before, wbich caused great consternation.
"At 4 o'clock A. M., the troops of Presi
dent Gjffrard entered the capital, which sur
rendered without a gun being fired and tho re
public was proclaimed; Soulouque immediately
made out his papers of abdication, and a guard
escorted him to go on board the Melbourne; but
tho mub was so excited that he had to tako ref
uge ia the French Consulate. He i 3 now there

so glorious a revolution kuown iu Hayti. It is
impossible for me to write of the demonstra

dent Geffrard is truly u patriotic inau—a lover
of liberty, indepeDdouce, &c.
"We are certain, undur such a President, to
see this place in a flourishing positiou, while,
Soulouque wis a tyraut, feared and secretly
despised. We hail the republic with Vive It

SPAIN AND CUBA.

support of the Seuatc to the Government, as far
as it might be ueeded in view of the President's
Message. The Minister details the relation ot

amicable; explains the claims of our Govern- -

14I1E undersigned b rieves tint he has invented a
cast iron carriage, hub which f.,r excels c!l
others now jn use, for strength, ueatneis and dt.rc
bility, and that it only needs to ho examined, arid
its merits tested, to secure its universal approval
ur.-l adoption. Indeed it is no longer aa experi

judges in our country, and pronounce i or. of tho
Greatest !m prove menfs of ihe igej
Several vehicles liavc been in use over two vca:a
with the improved Hpb attached, and tbe Wheels
are still as perfect as when they left the shop, the
unavoidable' we;r excepted.
This is Ctio only Cast Iron Flub ever invented
sutable for light wheels.
This improvement is of such a nature that one or
more spokes may be taken out changed or replaced
without disturbing the other portion of the wheel.
Where a wood lub is used, :f -poke happens ta
tvc m • broken, it is necessary*to cut the tire r.:.d
sep:-.rate the felloes, to get at the damaged part.—
The whct-1 tn.ist he then recomposed, the tire le
wel-Jeu ar tr; st. AH this involves a considerable
expanse and loss of time.
in the present Improvement the inner tads cf
the spok s ar-i secured i i an Iron Hub, which con
sists mainly of two shells fastened together v.i:h
screws. By simply unscrewing the nntsand taking
off the back shell, any one of the spokes tnav he
removed or changed, and the hub again put togeth
