Huntingdon, Wednesday, July 9,185 G
'The Broad Top Coal.
We 'find the following in the Philadelphia
Public Ledger of Monday last:
The Huntingdon and Broad Top Railroad
and Coal Company have sent to market since
the opening of their road 10,500 tons of coal,
all from the Company's mines. The deliver
ies now average 300, tons per day, and sever
al private collieries have just got into opera
tion, which will in a short time double the
quantity. The operators at the mines at the
present time hold orders exceeding 30,000
tons, besides many orders from railroads
and manufactories for trial lots, which are
expected to bring hereafter large permanent
orders. It -is now used exclusively on the
Columbia Railroad, their consumption alone
for locomotives and machine shops amount
ing to near one hundred tons per day. This
road bids faiiito be one of the most profit
able in our State.

ta— Fremont don't take with the opposi
tion in this and Blair county, if the following
letter gives correctly the prospects of Fill-
more :
ITUNTINGDON, June 30th, 1856,
.T. P. Sanderson, Esq:—Dear Sir—Yours
of the 28th inst., is just received. I thank
you for your kind invitation to be present at
a meeting of the friends of Fillmore, to be
held in Independence Square, on the evening,
of July 2d. If I can possibly arrange mat
ters so as to be able to leave home, I shall,
with great pleasure, metA and participate
with the friends of Mr. Fillmore, on the even
ing of July 2d, in Independence Square.
Fillmore stock is on the rise in this section
of the State. I was in Blair county last
Saturday, and find things all right there.—
The prospects for Fillmore at this time are
better in these two• counties than they were
for Taylor at the Ist of July 1848.
I remain yours truly,
Delightful—the serenade we received, from
the Huntingdon Brass Band, a few evenings
since. The members are making rapid pro
gress in their musical studies. This band is
a credit to our town.
July, containing valuable and interesting
matter, has been received. This publication
should be in the hands of every teacher in
the Commonwealth.
Line upon Line--here and there a Little.
Beautiful—The Lithograph of the " Revi
sed Plan of Hopewell," by J. Simpson Africa.
VED—The old-line Whigs of Erie county have
had a meeting, and come out en, m ete for
Buchanan and Breckinridge. So says an Ex
" ON DlT—That Win. Lewis, publisher of
the Globe, haS a serious intention of becoming
a priest."— Wm. Brewster and Samuel G.
If we should, we give you notice in time,
that neither of you can " come in." One
church in a healthy community is enough to
be polluted by your presence.
)3E9—Between eight and nine hundred old
line Whigs of Lancaster county have called
on Buchanan and declared their intention to
vote for him and labor for his election.
ION A NEW TRIP.—Salt River is a por
tion of the country that Mr. Fremont has not
explored ; he will be invited to do so, how
ever, .next November.
USA—A man in Wisconsin, recently adver
tising his farm for sale, winds up as follows :
—"The surrounding country is the most beau
tiful the God of nature ever made. The
scenery is celestial, divine, also two wagons
to sell and a yoke of steers."
cisco papers contain an obituary announcing
the death of Y. Turig, a Chinese, who, it ap
pears, in the absence of the other virtues,
was " favorably known by the length of his
queue, width of his breeches, and the extra
ordinary height of his shoes." Rare virtues !
" It don't pay," said a gentleman as he en
tered our office the other day, "It don't pay
to have cards printed 20 per cent. cheaper'
in the apple-butter style ;" and so saying he
threw away those he had printed at the Jour
nal office, and ordered us to get him up some
thing decent, .at our reasonable prices.
rei—The New Haven Register says the
Black Republicans are sending to Kansas
$120,000 to stimulate rebellion and murder ;
their calculations being that this amount
spent there is more available than three times
the amount spent in the free States, and that,
by the excitement they will get up in Kan
sas, they will carry so many of the Northern
States that from State patronage they can
liberally reimburse themselves.
17a." A fool in a high station," says a wri
ter, " is like a man on the top of a mountain
—everybody appears small to him, and he ap
pears small to everybody else." So we thought
of the licensed vender of abuse who occupies
but degrades the ‘ high station" of an editor
by his foolish essays through the connms of
the " Common Sewer," alias Jouvnal.
DEN—The National Era, the Republican or
gan at Washington, considers the nomination
of Fremont "unfit to be made." It says :
"Fremont is a young man ; a successful ex
plorer ; unfamiliar with politics ; without ex
perience as a statesman ; without antece
dents or records of any declared opinions on
the great question which agitates the coun
"Lewis lays some claims to respectabllity."
—Journal 18th ult.
" But his claims are not noticed by the re
spectable portion of the community."—.Tour
nal of last week.
We have but your word fur that, and that
is worth nothing. You are known as " the
licensed liar," and it could net be expected
that the association of such an individual
would give him an . opportunity of knowing
anything relative to the " respectable portion
of the community."
" History informs us that Mr. Buchanan
was "bitterly opposed to the war of 1812."
Pittsburg Journal.
He was so " bitterly opposed" to it that he
threw down his law books, took the stump
and made his first speech to rouse the people
of Lancaster to arms ; raised a company,
shouldered his musket, and marched to the
defence of Baltimore. That is the way a
patriot opposes a war in which his country is
engaged ; and such was the beginning of
James Buchanan's public and illustrious ca
DS.," We could cite innumerable instances
where the . eunich [that means us] has went
so far as to disgust the advertiser."—Journal.
You were just then thinking of your par
ticular friends who fill your paper with filthy
patent medicine advertisements. We did
"disgust" them by giving them to understand
that we could not think of disgusting our
readers by publishing their advertisements.
You didn't disgust them, did you ? Your
filthy columns give that answer: You would
rather disgust your readers.
The Fourth in lluntingdOn was celebrated by
the Methodist and Presbyterian Sunday
schools. No general celebration took place.
The Methodist Sunday school met dt the
Court Mouse, where addresses were delivered
by Rev'ds SHOAFF and BLACK of the Metho
dist, and FLETCHER of the Lutheran church.
The " Declaration" was read by Master GEo.
BOAT. After which, the Sunday school with
a large number of the invited, surrounded a
table bountifully laden with all the " good
things" served on such occasions. Tho ex
ercises were lively and enthusiastic; several
hymns and national airs were sung in fine
style, and the most agreeable feelings pre
vailed throughout. In the afternoon they
proceeded to the Cottage Grove,
The Presbyterian Sunday school met at the
church, and after exercises formed into pro
cession and marched to the Cottage Grove,
where addresses were made by - Mr. WM.
COLON, and their Pastor, Rev. Mr. McCLEAN.
The table was got up in fine style. In the
afternoon A. W. BENEDICT, Esq., delivered an
address which we learn was well received.
The day passed off quietly and pleasantly
all around, and was not marked by any of
the usual scenes of drunkenness and dissipa
?3 .The Hollidaysburg " Standard" of last
week does it" as follows to "The Globe."—
The "::itandard" has always ranked the best
and ablest of papers in this region, and it
makes us feel good to be tickled with its
feather. Hear it :
"The last Huntingdon Globe comes to us
rigged out in an entire new suit of Burgeois
and Nonpareil, looking as bright as a new
gold dollar just from the mint. The Globe is
one of the best papers in the State. It has
been under the control of its present editor,
Mr. Lewis, for ten years, during which time
it has been conducted with a tact and ability
that has won for it a patronage never enjoy
ed by any paper printed in the ancient Bor
ough. We hope that the taste he has dis
played and the expense incurred in the im
provement of his paper, will be properly ap
preciated and amply remunerated by the
Democratic sons of "mother lluntingdon."

our cotemporaries for their flattering notices

A Word About Kansas.
We are quite well aware that the subject of
Kansas outrages is getting to be an old story,
and that the majority of all right 3riinded
people are getting heartily sick and tired of
hearing about these sickening fabrications.
Upon no subject, and in no part of our past
political history, has the fertile imagination
of our .political opponents been so prolific in
producing monsters, as upon the subject of
outrages in Kansas. Lying has been the
order of the day. No sooner has one edi
tion been allowed to cool down, than an
other batch has bgan cooked with additional
seasoning, to suit the morbid .appetite of the
most depraved. 'We are of the opinion that
this game of falsehood and iniquity, is nearly
played out. The cheat has been effectually
exposed, and the wire-workers will soon meet
with universal execration •and contempt.
The St. Louis Republican of a, late date,
. contains a very important statement in rela
tion to three Bogus outrages, said to have
been committed by Missourians, which, on
the contrary, were perpetrated by Northern
'Abolitionists—the Rifle Christians from New
England. The statement is made by Joulv
T. HucnEs, Esq., one of the Clerks of tf •
Congressional Committee, sent to Kansas to
procure testimony. He says that lie took
great pains to get at the facts of the case—
that they were obtained from as reliable men
as can be found in the State or Territory—
and justice demands that the whole truth
shall be told, that the people South, North,
East, and West, may judge for themselves.
Mr. HIIIIGES visited Lecompton, Lawrence,
Leavenworth city, Westport, and othei• pla
ces, where the Congressional Investigating
Committee held their sessions, and was an
eye-witness of many of the high-handed acts
of atrocity committed by the emissaries of
the Northern Abolitiontsts upon the citizens
of the Territory, and their open resistance to
the laws of the Territory and the laws of the
United States. He was present in the town
of Lawrence when Sheriff JONES was shot by
these infuriated fanatics, while he was in the
performance of his official duty. The wound
was a deep and dangerous one, and nobody
expected that he would recover. Mr. Hu-
GITES saw in the streets the day he was shot,
an excited rabble sent out by the • Emigrant
Aid Society, heaping curses upon Sheriff
JONES and uttering the most diabolical threats
against him. Some of their expressions he
quotes as follows : "D—n him, why don't you
kill him, Hurrr—wily don't you shoot. him,
HoN.T.---d—n such laws—d—n such officers
—d—n such a country—d—n such a Presi
dent," &c., &c. He saw brick-bats thrown
at the officers of the law, and those who were
assisting in executing . them. The Hum' here
mentioned was the prisoner arrested. .
At the indignation meeting held at Law
rence to express the public disapproval of
shooting Sheriff JONES, the famous, or rather
infamous CHARLES ROBINSON made a speech,
in which he said : "I had rather obey the laws
e»zanating from hell, than submit to the laws
of the Territory," and that they, the aboli
tion emissaries, intended to "resist the laws
to a bloody issue." Since that time outrage
and wrong has been the order of the day.—
The Abolitionists, who refuse to obey the laws
of the Territory, formed themselves in
to guerrilla bands, and have spread terror
and dismay all over that country. They have
swept whole regions with fire and sword.
party of these ferocious madmen in
Franklin county, murdered a Mr. WILKINSON,
old Mr. DOYLE, two of his sons, two of the
SIIERMANS, all in the same neighborhood. 7—
These cold-blooded murders were all commit
ted in the most barbarous and revolting man
ner, some of they victims being horribly mu
tilated after being assassinated. Men have
been dragged from their beds in the middle
of the night, and foully murdered in the pre
sence of their wives and families.
Mr. HUGIIES saw three or four of Col. Mr-
FORD'S men whe were made prisoners while
they were driving their cattle along the pub
lic highway. These men informed him that
the Abolitionists had taken all their cattle,
robbed their wagons, taken all the money
they had, and then heaped every conceivable
insult upon them. They tied their hands be
hind their backs and took them out to hang
them, but afterwards changed their minds.
They gritted their teeth, shook their fists in
their faces while they were prisoners, and
said, "You d —d Southerners, this is the
way we will servo you all."
An old man, by the name of BOURNE, told
Mr. HucuEs that these Abolition bandits had
taken all his cattle, oxen and horses, robbed
him of every thing lie had in the world, dri
ven him and his family out of their home,
and burnt his house.
But we will not continuo our extracts from
this hideous catalogue of outrage and crime.
As there is but one step between the sublime
and the ridiculous, so there is but a narrow
point between_ philanthropy and cruelly.—
Philanthropy run mad, benevolence in a tate
of delirium and phrenzy, ccAnmits acts that
are . enoughto make angels weep. And all this
to make political capital for a sectional party
who aim to destroy the Union and trample
upon the Constitution.
The Ten-Cents-a-day Slander.
The New York Tribune, the head and front
of the Fremont faction nails the "ten cents"
slander to the counter. llear Greely : -
"!The charge that Mr. Buchanan has ad
vocated a reduction of laboring men's wages
to ten cents per day has but a very partial
support in fact. lie certainly never made
any such proposition directly, nor any
thing which he understood to have that ef
fect. What he did say was substantially
this : The true way to encourage American
manufactures is, to diminish their money
cost by restricting our currency. Suppose a
piece of cloth can be made in Germany for
fifty dollars which cannot be made here for
less than seventy-five, let us contract our cur
rency fifty per cent., and we can make that
same cloth here cheaper than it can he im
The Tribune tells its party friends that the
mode of warfare adopted by the circulation
of this and other slanders is unwise and inz_
Buchanan once said that if he believed he
had a bit of democratic blood in his veins he
would open them and let it out. That Mr.
Buchanan made this declaration there is no
doubt. [Rochester Democrat.
"There is no doubt" that the writer of the
above deliberately penned it fully believing
it to be calumnious and false. The Tribune
of Saturday distinctly discredits the story;
the Democrat of Monday reproduces it. Mr.
Buchanan has said under his own hand and
in the most positive manner: "This ridicu
lous story is without a shadow of foundation.
"I now pronounce it to be absolutely false, no
matter from what source it may have proceed
ed or shall proceed."
Thirty old citizens of Lancaster, many of
whom say they have known Mr. Buchanan
from boyhood, certify that the story is false,
and that it was never heard of till thirteen
years after the date assigned to it. No in
telligent man believes it—no intelligent man
can believe it. [Rochester Union..
