TEIE HUNTINGDON GLOB N, A. DEMOCRATIC FAMILY JOURNAL, DEVOTED TO LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS, Hi
Huntingdon, Wednesday, August 27,1856
Prom th•.) Pennsylvania Demokrat
The Black Republicans of Pennsylvania
have entered. upon the present politicalcom
paign in the State with more than their ac
customed impude,nco and boldness. They
present a ticket containing the names of two
of the most rabid know Nothings in the
counir v.—Laporte and I'h,. -7ps,—ancl then with
mock solemnity, ask the German naturalized
citizens to give it their support. If this were
done. as a mere matter of jest, it would be a
subject of merriment; but when the attempt
is made to deceive the Germans, by introdu
cing Know*Nothings to their consideration,
the thing assumes the character of an insult,
which should be properly resented. 1)o the
Black Republicans suppose, that we have for
gotten the nefarious designs of the Secret
Lodges ? They must think that we have
laid aside the ordinary - impulses of human
nature, or become totally oblivious of the in
juries inflicted in secret upon naturalized
citizens. We have a reasonable quantity of
the milk of human kindness in our composi
tion; but we should despise Qurselves, were
we so forgetful of the interests of our coun
try and race, as to support tte most proscrip
tive Know Nothings, under the guise of Re
publicans, or in any other fictitious charac
ter. Forgiveness is a very commendable vir
tue, and should be practiced whenever it can
be done with .safety to the individuals ag
grieved, or the Nation. The viper that once
inflicts a deadly sting upon the passenger, is
never taken into his embrace or admitted to
his companionship. Know No th ingi sm would
have entirely destroyed the equality between
our citizens, had it long remained in power.
It has already alienated the affections of the
native born from the naturalized,, and is just
as malignant in its designs as when it was
first belched from the nostrils of Pluto.
Who does not recollect with what pride
and. insolence the members of the Secret Or
der asserted, that naturalized citizens had no
right to the same social distinction as them
selves ? Nor had they a right to the proper
ty which they acquired by their industry and
economy. No—no—a new sort of Agrarian
ism was to be established. Naturalized citi
zens, under the doctrines of the 'Know Noth
ing Lodges, were to be nominally free, but
virtually they would have been worse than
slaves. The privilege to labor in this coun
try was not denied them ; but they could not
enjoy the fruits of their industry, That be
longed to the Natives who were to be seated
on the highest seats in the political Syna
gogue, and possess all the places at the feast.
The naturalized citizens might smell the fla
vor of the dishes, but were wholly interdicted
from tasting the viands they contained. And
yet these proscriptive knaves,—who desired
to control the consciences of men—now have
the unparalleled effrontery to ask naturalized
citizens to support their candidates,—Laporte
and rhe/ps,—who went through every de
gree of their infamous organization, and even
now are at the head of the Order. It may
be, that we may have mistaken German char
acter and spirit: but if we understand the
promptings of every manly nature, no matter
in what clime it was educated, we must here
assert, that it would be debasing to all the
nobler instincts of humanity, for Germans to
give the slightest encouragement to a secret
political party, whose most violent efforts
were made to enslave them both body and
Why the Know Nothings should make
such vigorous effbrts to obtain the German
vote for their candidates—Luperie and Phelps
—we are somewhat baffled to discover. We
pride ourselves in our manhood and intelli
gence, and are quick to resent a studied in
sult or unwarrantable wrong. Our German
sensibilities are aroused at injury as quick as
men of other nationalities, and yet we are
pertinaciously insulted daily, by appeals in
behalf of candidates, who have never ceased
their efforts to degrade us in the social scale,
by putting us under the ban of inferiority.
The Constitution of the country has made us
equals, and the laws protect us in this equal
ity.. Shall we basely surrender this privilege,
and bow our necks to the footstep of the op
pressor ? If. such degradation is to come up
on the Germans, it shall riot be by our con
nivance. We therefore spurn the Know Noth
ing candidates—Laporte and Pkelps—as
abominations fraught with a' moral and po
And now the 13.attle is to Commence.
" The glorious old banner that Jefferson
first raised," says the Boston Post, " and
floated over the great heart of Jackson, is
once more unfurled On it is inscribed the
names of Buchanan and Breekinridge, both
of great intellectual power and of lofty per
sonal character; both statesmen in the true
sense of the word, and of comprehensive
views; and both worthy to fill and adorn the
high places of the republic. Such are the
standard-bearers of the Democratic flag !
Hang it on the outer wall of each Democrat
ic citadel! Let Democrats, one and all,
rally under its glorious folds, and close up
in solid phalanx for the fight.
Let not the error be committed of under
rating our enemy. The sectionalism that
would divide our country, and the Know
Nothingism that would make our country
not worth dividing, will array themselves in
a ibrmidable host. It will be as unscrupu
lous as it is dangerous. It will malign our
candidates; it will traduce our cause. Let
every Democrat lend a deaf ear to calumny,
and a willing hand to defend their cause.
There is something significant in the pres
ent condition of the country, in the location
of the candidate for the executive chair. We
have had Presidents from Virginia and from
Massachusetts, from the South, from Ohio,
from the Granite State, and from commercial
New York. But on their elections there was
no geographical division of parties as is now
proposed. It is significant that in such a cri
sis as exists, the noble middle State of Penn
sylvania should supply the President. She
will send forth her great statesman with the
olive branch to the North and to the South ;
and thus the State that has so long been the
keystone of the Democratic arch will now be
the keystone of flap Union."
A letter to the Pellilsylvanian, from Cam
bria. County, says:
" The Democratic party in this county is
in good condition. We have fixed our major
ity at 1000, and it may be greater. Last
year our majority was between 6 and 700,
and I know many who then opposed us who
are now for Buchanan. The old line Whigs
are nearly all with us, and many are active

_How TO GET A W/TE WITII A FORTUNZ.-
" Jacques Bonhomme," a Paris correspon
dent, relates the following anecdote, which
he locates in that city:—
"A young man of fine family, though int
poverished by the revolution, aspired to the
post under government, to occupy which it
was necessary to furnish a certain sum to de
posit as security. Our hero could not obtain
the requisite amount from his friends, and,
at last, hit upon - an expedient to put an end
to the difiieulty. He caused an advertise
ment to appear in one of the journals, as fol
"'A young man, occupying an honorable
position, wishes to inarry a lady well brought
up, and possessed of two hundred and fifty
"Two hundred and fifty francs are but fif
ty dollars, and, as there are many women in
the world who would be glad to purchase a
young, handsome, and honorably connected
husband, on such moderate "terms, it was
quite natural that the advertiser, in the•coursp
of the three days during which his notice ap
peared in public, should have received many
letters and applications. The young man ad
dressed a note to each of the applicants, ap
pointing a place and hour when he would
meet them altogether; and politely inviting
all -to come and look at him. On the even
ing indicated, they' came, and, it is said, the
company numbered -full two hundred women.
"When all had assembled, the young man
`organized the meeting,', and made a speech,
in which he thanked those ladies for the hon
or they proposed conferring upon him. 'But,'
said. the self-possessed young gentleman, `you
must understand, ladies, perfectly well, that
I cannot marry you all, moreover you are all
so charming (many of them. were horrible
witches,) "t would be utterly impossible for
me to choose amongst such lovely creatures.
This, then, is my proposition :—Consider me
as an object put up at lottery. You number
two hundred ; make two hundred tickets at
two hundred and fifty francs each, and the
gross sum realized shall be the fortune of the
lady who draws the lucky number, and whom
I pledge myself to marry immediately.—
They hesitated a moment, but-the youth was
good looking, and the ladies were anxious to
marry. One of them determined to accept
the proposition, and the rest followed after,
like a flock of sheep. As if to reward our
venturous young friend for his courage, his
fortunate stars directed that he should to
the lot of a youthful and pretty girl, whose
n•reatest fault is an unhappy passion for prac
tising on the piano. True to his word, the
young man married her, and at last accounts,
the couple thus strangely brought together
were passing a pleasant honeymoon."
Tu D ISUNIONISTS.-Th e black republicans
find their work of disunion flagging. The
fires of patriotism still burn so brightly, the
memories of the past are so dearly cherish
ed, the blessings of the present are so truly
prized, and the hopes of the future so highly
appreciated, by the great body of the Amer
ican people, that one by one the hopes of the
disunionists fade away, their illusions of suc
cess vanish, and the unwelcome truth that
they will prove to be the worst beaten party
that ever pretended to success in a presiden
tial contest stares them boldly in the face.—
They may purchase rotten newspapers by
the score, bribe venal editors, and, persuad
ing Greeley to cease calling the Herald a
"satanic" press, and Bennett to desist from
pronouncing Greeley and his flock "nigger
worshippers," induce them both to refrain
from tellinf , the truth of each other for the
purpose of devoting
all their energies to re
tailing falsehoods for Fremont, but all in
vain. Their position is understood.—Even
