we have demanded the proof, and you refuse to give it.—
But, you can go on, now—we have stripped you of all
claims to truth, honor and honesty, and from time to time
will reiterate the charges - made against you by others as

STEARIN' OUT uc ALEETEs'.- 4, The Huntingdon American',
of last week told the dirty scavengers of the "Huntingdon
Journal" that if they refused to accept our proposition or
to retract, they would not be considered as "worthy the as
sociation of respectable niggers." That's the sentence—
pass it around.

Sheriff Greenlatid, for asserting that Samuel G. Whittaker
was "a self-convicted perjurer." Court will adjourn to
day or to-morrow, and still no arrangements have been
made with the Sheriff for that room, once upon te time oc

A. WORD Flto3l !t. RECENT F;j4,..moßg. ORGAN
The Cincinnati Daily Commercial, until
lately friendly to the election of Mr. Fr tuaonE,
has the following remarks upon the great
Democratic victory in Kentucky:—
To a man not totally stultified by the heat
of party warfare, it would seem perfectly
demonstrable that the hope which the Fill
more men have entertained of gaining the
State of Kentucky, and thereby carrying the
Presidential election into the House, is base
less. The : returns of the election of Monday
tell'a story that it is idle to disregard. A.
party press may make very ingenious essays
to explain away the catastrophe, and editors
give most excellent reasons why it is as it is;
but experience has often taught that their'
efforts in that belialf, however brilliant, are
of too alight materials to form the basis of
future operations. The truth is, that, in the
most reliable Fillmore State in the Union, the
Fillmore party has received what is, to all
intents and purposes, a death-blow to its
prospects. The elaboratg and sham displays
of enthusiasm with which it has been endeav
oring to deceive itself and the world, have
not answered the purpose. Fillmoreista has
certainly received its death-blow in Kentucky.
The friends that Mr. FILLMORE has yet re_
maining in Pennsylvania may see. what fu
sion with Abolition Republicanisni. in :this
State has done for their cause elsewhere.
They will finally fuse their cause and their
candidate into hopeless oblivion.
FRIGHTFUL EARTHQUAKE IN THE
Eruption. of a Volcano---Three Thous.:
and Lives lost.
[From the London Times.]
The Indian mail brings advices of another
of those dreadful 'earthquakes for which Tor
• nati and the adjoining localities in the Mo
hiccas - are proverbial. An eruption of the
active volcano on the island of Great Saugir,
in 10ng.125° 50' E., and lat. 30° 50'- N.. has
occurred. The northwestern part of the is
land. - of Great Sangir is formed by - the moun
tain Awu, which has several peaks, the
highest being about 4,000 feet above the sea,
On the west side the mountain runs very
steep into the sea, at the height of the largo
village Kandhar, however, falling away to a
Between 7 and 8 o'clock on the evening of
the 2.d. of March, a sudden and altogether in
describable crashing noise was heard, which,
indicating to the Satigirese an eruption of the
volcano, filled them with consternation. Si
multaneously with this, the glowing lava
streamed downwards - with irresistible force
in different directions, bearing with it what
ever it encountered on its destructive course,
and causing the sea to boil wherever they
came in. contact. The hot springs opened. up
and cast out a flood of boiling water, which
destroyed and carried away what the fire
had spared. The sea obedient to an unusual
impulse, lashed the rocks with frightful vio
lence, dashed upon the shore, and heaved it
self with a wild haste against the land, as if it
strove to overmaster the fire stream.
The frightful picture of destruction, the
horror of which was increased by the shrieks
of men and beasts, the wild roaring of the tem
pest, and the crashings of thousands of trees
torn up and carried away, was followed, about
an hour later, by peals of thunder which
shook the ground and deafened. the ear. A
black column of stones and ashes then shot
up from the mountain to an immense height,
and fell, illumed by the glare of the lava,
like a shower of fire upon the surrounding
country below, producing a darkness that,
only now and then momentarily broken by
the flashes of lightning, was so intense, that
people could not discern objects close at hand,
and which completed their confusion and de
spair. Large stones were hurled through the
air, crushing whatever they fell upon. Houses
and crops, which had not been destroyed by
fire, sunk and disappeared beneath the ashes
and stones, and the hill streams, stopped by
those barriers, formed lakes, which, breaking
over their banks, soon proved. a new source of
This lasted some hours. About midnight
the raging elements sank ro rest; but on the
followinr , day, about noon, they again re
sumed their work of destruction, with renew
ed violence. In the meantime, the fall. of'
ashes continued without intermission, and
was so thick on this day that the rays of the
sun could not penetrate through it, and an
appallin,.,l darkness prevailed.
Scarcely recovered in some degree from
their fright, the inhabitants of this desolated
part of Sangir were again disturbed by an
eruption on the 17th of March, which de
'stroyed many fields and a great number of'
trees on the Tabukan side.
. ' Since then the volcano has remained quiet,
and the only symptom of its working has
been the smoke rising up in all directions
from the cracks and fissures in the ground.
The streams of la -a on the slopes are still so
slightly cooled that people dare not venture
to any great distance from the shore. Ac
cording to the accounts of the natives, the top
of the mountain does not appear to have un
dergone any noticeable alteration.
On the other side of Kandhar on the ex
treme north point of the island, the appear
ance of the devastation which has been
caused, is, if possible, even more frightful
than what has taken place at Taruna, For
here, where formerly there were to be seen
extensive fields bearing all kinds of crops and
and thickly planted and endless groves of
cocoanuts, we now find nothing but lava,
stones, and ashes. The liquid fire seems at
this point to have flowed from the mountain
with irresistable force and in prodigious quan
tity. Not only has this fearful flood, as it
- were, buried the whole district and all that
was upon it, but after having caused this de
struction over an extent of several miles, it
was still powerful enough, on reaching the
shore, to form two long taujongs (canes) at
places where the depth of water formerly con
sisted of many fathoms.
4 munber of other districts arid places have
been, some wholly destroyed, others greatly
injured by the fire. •
The loss of life has been great. It ig ;esti
mated as follows, in the undrmentioned dis
tricts: Taruna, men, women and children,
722; Kandhar, men, women and children,
45; T.abtikan, men, women and children,
2,039; total, 2,80.6,'
The greater number met their death in
the gardens. They fled. in all directions, but
were overtaken and swallowed up by the fatal
fire-stream. Some tried to save themselves '
in the trees, but were either carried away
with them or killed by the scorching heat.
At Kalangan and Tariang, the houses were
filled with people, who were stopped in their
flight by the lava streaming down on all sides,
and the streams of boiling water, and who
met their death under the burning ashes and
the tumbling houses. Many who had reached
the shore and thought themselves safe, be
came a prey to the furious waves, and many
died through sheer despair and agony,
ATTEMPT TO COMMIT A RAPE ON A tip' lIITE
GIRL BY .t WEGRO.--Yesterday morning be
tween S and 9 o'clock, as a Miss Decker, of
Kernville, and a younger sister, were walk
,,incr in the road near Parkstown, about two
miles from this place, she was violently seized
by a fiend in the shape of a 'big negro, and
dragged into the woods, where the black
monster endeavored to accomplish the .beast
ly purpose of committing a rape. Most for
tunately a young man named Frederick Berg
ner, and a boy. named Thomas Parks who
were on the road not far' distant, though out
of sight, were startled by the screams of the
younger sister, and hastening to the spot,
were the means of freeing the
clutches of the loathsome brute. On hearing
the approach of Mr. Bergner, the negro
precipitously,fleci through the woods and made
his escape. The girl's drese was tarn into
fragments, and she was.much scratched about
the face and neck, showing marks of great
violence. She would not say, when rescued,
how far the black villian had - succeeded in
the accomplishment, of his hellish purpose.
Mr. Bergner thinks he had not time to effect
it. Both the girls, it is said, would know the
negro were they to see him again: This mat
ter will surely be looked after by the proper
authorities, and the black fiend caught and
punished.—Tofinsto ton ,Echo.
