Our Candidate for Congress
By reference to the proceedings of th.e.Con
gressional Conference held at Johnstown on
Friday last, it will be seen that on the fourth
ballot CYRUS L. PEnsursu was unanimously
selected as the candidate of the Democratic
party of this Congressional district. Mr.
F.EasurNo is a young man of brilliant talents,
an able lawyer, and of unspotted character.
lle is popular at home with all parties, and
it is only necessary for him to be known thro'-
out the district to secure not only his own
.party vote hut.also a heavy vote from the op
position. Without ; - .1, single exception, he is
.the best man in the four counties for the
office to which he has been nominated, and we
ask for him the vote of every Man wholiesires
the district to be ably and honorably repre
sented. In his own county, we are assured,
he will run at least three hundred ahead of
his ticket, and with proper exertions on the
part of our democratic friends throughout the
balance of the District, he can be elected by
,to work, then,
r use every honorable means
to secure for Mr. Pm:sift:cc a majority of the
,votes in the district.
Our Candidate for State Senate
-The Senatorial Conference met at Altoona
on Monday, and unanimously re-nominated
JOIIN CRESSWELL, Esq., of Hollidaysburg.
The proceedings of the Conference have not
yet came to hand—they shall appear next
week. We are free to admi t that Mr. CRESS
WELL was not the first choice of many of
our Democratic friends, but he received the
nomination of a full Conference, and we are
confident he will be re-elected over the can
didate of the factions.
The Democratic County Convention
of Blair county, niet in Hollidaysburg, on
Tuesday of last week, and nominated Dr. P.
W. CHRISTY, of Duncansville, for Assembly.
He is a rood man.
CORRESPONDENCE OF THE GLOBE.
BARICETSTOwN, TOD TOWNSITIP,
Sept. 8, 1856.
DEAR " 0 LOBE : "—Knowing your undevia
ting opposition to all "ists" and. "isms" cal
culated to endanger the freedom, justice and
equality characterizing our institutions, and
your fidelity to the principles of the Demo
cratic party through sunshine and storm, I
am induced to drop you a line from here—a
township heretofore given up to the enemy
without apparently a struggle. Democrats
of Tod are not disposed. to give it up so easi
ly now. New issues have been forced. upon
them ; that great party, commanding the res 7
pect of their political opponents in Tod, has
disappeared from the canvass. They seek
in vain for those great fundamental princi
ples of its action, either in the sectional Black
Republican platform, or the proscriptive res
olutions of Know-Nothingism. The alarm
bell of disunion is heard from the former,
and the dark spectral figure of Religious In
tolerance is seen strolling through the latter.
These are no parts or parcels of the great
Whig party—defunct though it be—under
whose banner the men of Tod did battle.—
No, no—only noxious weeds growing upon
the grave of a saint. Farmers by profession,
they are calling upon their neighbors to ral
ly—bring their scythes and pruning hooks—
cut down this noxious growth and cast it in
to the fire—and they ?pin do it.
As evidence of this, already have the un
terrified held two meetings—raised at Bar
netstown, a hickory pole, from which may be
seen "floating in the breeze," our National
flag, with its thirty-one stars, and a Streamer
bearing the time 7 honored name of our own
beloved Buchanan, and that of his associate
in the good work- 7 -the young, generous and
whole-souled Kentuckian. These meetings
were well attended. Able speeches were
made by both Democrats and Old Line Whigs.
It was; indeed, a grand sight to see those vet-
erans from the old Whig ranks, coming bold
ly forward in this the hour of our country's
peril, co-operating with their old political en
emy, and fighting shoulder to shoulder for
the preservation of our glorious Union, and
the purity and perpetuity of our free institu
tions. It shows an earnest that will produce
good results. The meeting on Saturday even
ing last, as well as the one preceding, exhib
ited the most perfect harmony. Good feel
ings prevailed between members of all par
ties—all resolving to "buckle on their armor"
and fight with "right good will" from this
until the fourth of November next, for the
success of James Buchanan and John C.
Unanimously tendering to Mr. J_lmEsDirxx,
the gentlemanly proprietor of the Barnets
town Hotel, our sincere thanks for his cour
tesy and kindness on those two occasions—
three cheers for his sterling democracy al
ways—nine for the Union—the Constitution
—the unterrified Democracy marching to
certain victory, under the sure and able gui
dance of " Buck" and "Brock," and deci
ding to have a meeting at the same place
(Barnetstown) on Friday evening, Sept. 12,
at which all the friends of Constitutional lib
erty are cordially invited to attend. Adjourn

Hear the Michigan Whigs!
We publish in another column an earnest
and eloquent appeal of SIXTY-NINE Whigs of
Detroit to their fellow Whigs of the State, to
which we invite the serious attention of the
Whigs of Huntingdon county. The Whigs
who have issued this address are represented
by the Detroit Free Press as being among
the most intelligent, respectable and prom
inent in the State. One of them was the
Whig candidate for Governor in 1843, and
several others have occupied responsible pub
lic positions. Appeals from such men can
not, we think, fail to have a good effect—at
all events they should be carefully read and
,tom' The mass meeting at Lewistown on
Saturday, was largely attended. It was
cheering to every friend of "Pennsylvania's
favorite son," to witness delegation after dol
egation coming in from all directions, bear
ing their - flags and banners, accompanied
with :hands of music, and rending the air
with shouts of enthusiasm. It was a perfect
avalanche of people—the enthusiasm was un
bounded—and the speeches able and effec
tive. Mifflin county will undoubtedly go for
Buchanan by a very respectable majority.
Fire IN ALEXANDRIA.--On Tuesday night
last, the new house of Enoch Kline, Carriage
manufactory, tools and unfinished work of
Joseph_ Isenberg, and blacksmith shop of
Abraham Piper, were destroyed by fire.
How it originated we did not learn.
..11CA— The Concert by the "Excelsior Band"
on Friday evening, was well attended. They
were assisted .by their instructor, Prof. J. P.
Rowbotliam, and Mr. 11. S. Van Tries, of
Hollidaysburg, and gave the most entire sat
isfaction. Success attend the "Excelsior
A rAcT.—Among the generally "admitted
facts" by onr citizens, is this one—that Gro.
11. AUXER, is one of the best,—if not the
very best, of Daguerreotype and Ambrotypp
'artists who has ever visited liuntingdoh._
Then make no delay, but call on hiM gt his
room in the Court House, and secure a per
Crowded out—Several articles that should
have been crowded in. •
The following facts detailed by a eotempo
rary should be read and considered by every
1. That the Black Republicans are guilty
of the blackest falsehood, when they charge
that the Democracy are in favor of the exten
sion of slavery : They know well that the
Democracy, by their platform, insist that the
people of every State and Territory shall de
cide the matter themselves, whether they will
have that institution or not. Being in favor
of this doctrine the " Blacks" call advocating
the extension of slavery. Shame upon their
misrepresentation and falsehoods 1
2. It is a fact that no one can oppose the
Democratic doctrine above alluded to, of pop
ular sovereignty for the Territories, and be a
good American, since such opposition must
be founded in the kingly doctrine that the
people are not capable of self7government.
3, It is p, fact that the difficulties in Kan
sas originated with the Northern Abolition
ists, who formed societies for the purpose of
controlling its institutions—in advance of the
actual settlers—by sending out men from
Massachusetts to vote at the elections, and
that such have since been kept up by the
Black Republicans for the purpose of politi
4. It is a fact that the Democratic United
States Senate passed a bill abrogating certain
obnoxious laws of the Kansas Legislature, of
which the Black Republicans, complain, and
that the latter voted against and defeated the
measure, because they desired to make polit-,
ical capital out of them.
5. It is a fact that the British monaxchists
are sending money to aid the Black Repub
licans, because, as their journals state, he be
ing a sectional candidate, his election would
dissolve the Union.
G. It is a fact that recent discoveries make
it probable that Fremont was not born in the
United States, and, therefore, by the Consti
tution, is not eligible to the office of Presi
7. It is a fact that, while in California, he
certified that certain claims against the Gov
ernment for supplies furnished by him were
just and right, and that the Government, upon
investigation, found that those claims were
fraudulent to the amount of nearly a million
8. It is a fact that the Black Republican
party exists in but sixteen States ; that it is
entirely geographical and sectional ; that it
displays banners upon which are inscribed
but sixteen instead of thirty-one States ; that
the basis of its strength is hostility to the
South; and that its success would lead to dis
union and eiyil war.

Appeal of Whigs of Detroit to the Whigs
The undersigned, being heirs, with you,
of a priceless political inheritance ; fellow
citizens of a common country; members of a
great, conservative, national, and once trium
phant party, desire to address to you a few
words of warning and of exhortation, in
view of the causes whiCh endanger the per
petuity of the government, disturb the repose
of the country, and threaten to eradicate from
the national Mind that sentiment of unity
which has hitherto made us one people.
Though disbanded by the death of our
parliamentary leaders, reduced in number
by defection in our ranks, disheartened by
the political infidelity'of some of our chosen
instrumentalities, we believe there still slum
bers in the bosom of our party a sentiment
which will cordially respond to every note of
appeal coming in the name of that revolu
tionary watchword which did so much to
sustain our fathers during the long struggle
whiCh intervened between the battle of Bun
ker gill and the termination of the siege of
YOrktown, in the surrender of Lord Corn
It is to the scattered but living members of
that national and gallant band who wept for
their country at the defeat . of Henry Clay in
1844, that we make this brief address.
Being ourselves among the number of those
who joined the Whig standard, no less from
an ardent adoration of two men, one distin
guished above all others for his power of
marshalling the hosts which entered the
ranks of his friends, and the other for mas
siveness of intellect which gave a breadth
and solidity to the party commensurate with
the Constitution of our country, than from a
sincere conviction that their views of the of
fices of a revenue tariff, of a national curren
cy, and of the principles which should govern
the administration of public affairs, as well
as the legislation of Congress, if carried into
effect, would have promoted the prosperity of
the citizens, and increased the stability of
These convictions enable us to retrace our
party history with a just sentiment of pride,
embittered only by the regret that we failed
to enstamp our principles upon the govern
ment and the country, and to requfte, with a
becoming manifestation of gratitude, those
eminent men Nyho inspired it with those great
attributes which challenged the admiration,
secured the Support and confidence of 'much
of the talent and intelligende of the country.
Whilst we 'still approve of the measures ad
vocated by the champions of the good old
Whig cause re-affirmed in the acts of our na
tional conventions;' whilst we revere the
memory of those .who have departed in the
faith, leaving us the fragrande" of their good
names, and the influence of a great example;
and whilst we admire and would humbly im
itate the example of our great men, both in
the past history of the party arid in the re
cent acts of.some of its distinguished mem
bers, we would fain have you remember that
there is only left for us the duty of choosing
between an effort to re-organize and re-con
struct the Whig party, or' to abandon our
duty as citizens in refusing to vote at the com
ing election, or to merge ourselves, in viola
tion of all our antecedents, into a party sec
tional in its organization and dangerous in
its tendencies, or that of boldly taking sides
in the present campaign with our ancient but
national opponent, the Democratic party.
As Whigs—as men, having the warnings
of Washington in our memories—as citizens
knowing our own history, so as to distinguish
between the powerlessness of a population,
Facts for the Peesple
as seen during the continuance of the, confed
eration, as the might and majesty of a people,
as organized under our glerious Constitution ;
as Intelligent and patriotic freemen, knowing
the impossibility of re-constructing such an
other political fabric, if we permit this one
to be ruthlessly destroyed, we warn you
against an alliance with any party of men,
Republicans; or otherwise in name,' who seem
ready to do acts that will inevitably loosen
the bonds that now hold us together as a na
tion, and constitute us one people.
Whatever our Whig friends in other States
of the Union nay, in the circumstances by
which they are surrounded, conclude to do,
for ourselves, in the absence of an unalloyed
Whig organization, after a careful survey of
the signs which mark the political horizon of
the country—in view of the temperament of
our people, when excited to exasperation by
the designs of the demagogue, and of the dan
ger that actsmay be done by them under the
influence of a temporary aberration of judg
ment, however patriotic the motives of the
actors, which will cause the stars of our
cherished confederation to go down in an
endless political night, and the flag of our
Union to be stained in fraternal blood—we
deem it to be a paramount duty to leave un
tried' no honorable ineariS which thay . contrib
ute to the defeat of the Republican ticket and
thereby PreserVe to ourselves an independent
existence, ready for future action and enti
tled to a glorious triumph,'when our now ex
cited and deluded friends 'shall resume their
wonted deliberation and renew their alle
giance to that Conservative party which has
hithertd looked upon the United States as one
country, and has engraved in illuminated
letters upon its own chosen standard this pat
riotic motto : " Liberty and Union now and
forever, one and inseperable ;" and therefore
have resolved— '
'That we will preserve our political identity
byjoinino• "no party that does not carry the
flag and acp Step to the music of the Union ;"
tiat in our judgment it is too late to attempt
to reorganize the Whig party for the purpose
of securing a commanding position in the
election of 1856.
And finally, on a review of our relations to
the Democratic party, we find that our differ
ences with it have become narrowed down to
an honorable rivalry for obtaining possession
of the power of the government, each claim
inv, the disposition and the capacity to use it
so as more certainly than the other to become
instrumental in consolidating the government
and promoting the happiness and prosperity
of the people. For these reasous we proclaim
our intention to retain our position as Whigs ;
but, for the sake of the government 4nd the
country, whose duration and peace we desire
to promote, in the absence of a distinctive
Whig organization in this State at the ap
proaching election, we will, as an alternative
necessity, so cast our suffrages as to promote
the election of Mr. Buchanan to the Presi
dency of the United States, in which patriotic
effort we earnestly invoke your cordial co
