THE HENTINGDON GLOBE; A DEMOCRATIC FAMILY JOURNAL, DEVOTED TO LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS, &C.
Iluntingdon, Wednesday, Sept. 17, 1856,
Line upon Line.-Here and There a Little.
BREWSTER s WIIITTAEEII.—QUER:r No. I.—HOw many of
your former patrons have discontinued your paper SitlCo
the let of August, and for what reason?
Is there a single white or black man in the town. who
will go before a Justice of the Peace, and make oath that
he will believe either of you if. not put under oath?
Do you not know, that since you have backed out from
proving the assertions you made against us, that you can
not scare up a single subscriber to the Journal, who will
believe any charge you have since, or may hereafter make
against us 7
Do you know that respectable men would rather that
you should not crowd yourself kit° their company?
Is it not a fact that the candidates on the Fremont coun
ty Ticket, feel that the less you say in their favor, the
higher they will stand as respectable men?
A HANDSOME PRESENT.—MT. J. A. HALL, has our thanks
for several bunches of delicious grapes, and a number of
very large and handsome tomatoes. If we are not greatly
mistaken, Mr. H. will take the first premiums at our coun
ty fair. We advise all others to dO their best. Specimens
delivered at this office, shall undergo a careful examina
Tsu MORALITY OF BREWSTER & Winn"Amts.—Some weeks
age, we proposed to Brewster & Whittaker, to wager $lOO,
that the charges they made against us, were false. They
declined to accept our offer for the reason that they were
morally opposed to betting. But in a late number of their
paper, they propose to bet the editors of the American, $25,
that the Fremont meeting did not adjourn with three
sheers for Fillmore. As they are no longer morally oppos
ed to betting, we renew our propositions. .Dare they take
ns up ?
CURIOSITIES FOR TILE FAlR—Brewster & Whittaker. As
every man, woman and child in this neighborhood, has
seen them stript of their disguise—strdngers will be ad
mitted free of charge, on application to their keeper.
"Query No. 1," in the Journal, will be answered
satisfactorily, if the editors will risk more than their char
utters on the result. Will they back up their queries with
$25 or $5O ?
The repeated insinuations of the " small potato out
siders," of the woolly-head Organ, that there is any person
connected with or engaged in the "Globe" office, who is a
habitual drinker of Lager Beer, or any other kind of beer,
or liquor, are destitute of truth. The charge is as untrue
as it is ungentlemanly and contemptible. The communi
ty know the source from whence it emanates, and they
also know that the author is the last person who should
make a charge of that kind!
" The man wot wrote a book, was run out of Huntingdon
for amalgamating with niggers."
.414 — p Need we tell our readers that the above morsel of
low lying is from the ' Huntingdon Journal F' That charge
is but the ultra coinage of a madman's brain=the last,
desperate stab of an out-done assassin! The gentleman
against whom it is directed, MAX, GREENE, Esq., came here
by invitation of a committee, (ourself amongst the num
ber) and while here was the guest, and ire the enjoyment of
the society, of many of our most respectable citizens—
some of whom have been intimately acquainted with him
from boyhood, and respect him for his moral character as
well as his talents. We ask the question whether the
characters of respectable men who may happen to visit our
town are thus to be assassinated by the low, grovelling
wretches, who control the columns of that unprincipled,
filthy sheet? Their conduct is a stab at the interests and
reputation of the community, and should be frowned down.
To the community the Journal promises to prove a greater
plague, or at least to equal the " ten plagues" which were
visited upon the land of Egypt—the lice, the frogs, the lo
custs, the mildew, murrain, &c., and it is now a question
whether the borough authorities should not take measures
to abate it.
In—Some half-witted fellow through the columns of the
Philadelphia Public Ledger, a paper bought. up by the Abo
litionists, advises James Buchanan to withdraw from the
contest. There may be some simple enough among the
opposition to believe that he will, but Democrats know
that he is made of too stern stuff to surrender to enemies
of this blest Union. James Buchanan withdraw! Bahl
A SECRET Our.—The cause of the bitter opposition of
Brewster S: Whittaker to the Know Nothings in this coun
ty, has fully leaked out. Brewster could' lit get in after
being expelled from the Huntingdon Medical Society, for
ungentlemanly conduct—and Whittaker was expelled for
LYING and VOTING ILLEGALLY. Since then, Whittaker has
been compelled to vacate the position of Chairman of the
Fremont County Committee, and have his name taken off
the Committee altogether, before respectable men would
consent to act with his party. He is permitted, however,
to do the hard lying and dirty work of the party, to which
respectable men would not stoop. lie has an honorable
position, truly. Poor Gabe!
VQ,. The Democratic Standard says that the Know Noth
ing ticket in Blair county may be elected, but—as the
Dutchman remarked of his chances of going heaveuward
—" it'll pe a taut tight schqueezel"
HE FOUND Orr.—Gov. ',etcher. in a speech at a barbacue
in Kentucky, asked—`Who is John C. Breckinridge ?' An
old Democrat in the crowd suggested that he was the "strip
piing Democrat Who beat Letcher for Congress in the strong
est Whig district in the State." It is hardly necessary to
add that the Governor did not put that question again.
TILE GRAND RALLY ON SATURDAY
The meeting of the friends of Buchanan and
democracy on Saturday evening, was truly a
"Grand Rally," and demonstrated very clear
ly the fact that it required no "drumming
up" of the "faithful" on an occasion of that
kind, but actuated solely by a spirit of devo
tion to the cause of their country, they turn
ed out with spontaneous unanimity and en
At an early hour the soul-stirring strains
of the "Excelsior Band," called the faithful
to assemble at their post. A procession was
formed, bearing transparencies and banners,
and as it marched through our streets, receiv
ed accessions at every corner, until it was
swelled beyond any previous procession of
democratic town citizens, and now and then
cheer after cheer rent the air for the noble
standard bearers of our party.
Having paraded the several streets, the pro
cession repaired to the Court House. JOuN
SIMPSON, Esq., the President of the Club,
called the meeting to order, after which
.Col. War. COLON, the Chief Marshal of the
procession, moved that Tuo3tAs C. McDow-
ELL, Esq., of Hollidaysburg, address themeet
ing. Mr. MeDownm, mounted the stand
amidst the enthusiastic cheers of the crowd,
,and proceeded to make one of the ablest
speeches it has ever been our fortune to listen
to. For one hour and a half, by the watch,
the audience listened with spell-bound atten
tion to his able and masterly review of the
-present contest, and the candidates of the
several parties. The silent attention with
which he was listened to, was only broken
by cheers of approbation. He retired from
the stand as he mounted it, receiving the en
thusiastic plaudits of the assembly. A pro
cession. was again formed, which marched
through the principal streets, and finally
,at the Exchange Hotel, where it
was dismissed by a brief and pertinent ad
dress from Marshal COLON, after having first
given three cheers for Buchanan and Breck
inridge—thee for our Stateaml county tickets
—and three for Col. Tiros,. C. MeDown.n.

CORRESPONDENCE OF TIM GLOBE.
That " Vast Assemblage."
MR. LEWIS—In last week's " Journal" I
see a communication giving the important in
formation that a Fremont Club was organized
in Jackson township—giving the names of
the officers, &c. The correspondent who styles
himself " Free Labor," proceeds to say—"lt
is but just to add, that the vast assemblage
was composed of the respectable and influen
tial men—citizens of both the old parties."—
Does he mean the Know Nothing and Demo
cratic parties? If so, then there were men
in that " vast assemblage" who have persist
ently disclaimed all connection with the dark
lantern order heretofore, and we are glad
even now to know their true ,standing. Of
all the vast assemblage every one are known
to be Know Nothings save three, and one of
them a democrat, and the only democrat
among them. But the great query is—where
was the " vast assemblage" alluded to by
" Free Labor ?"
He must have optics sharp, I wecn,
To see what ne'er was to be seen."
Why the fact is—the whole " assemblage"
was composed of jive Black Republicans and
one American—just enough to make the offi
cers of the Club. The American was elected
President against his wishes—protesting all
the time he was for Fillmore—and would not
have his name published as such—therefore
he was dropped, and Mr. Wm. B. Smith sub
stituted in his place. They tried to coax. a
few democrats to " pitch in," but they had
no idea of engaging in the "wool business"
at present, and therefore declined. As the
School Directors were in session at the Fort
at the same time that this monster assemblage
was organizing " to shriek for freedom," and
to resist the " aggressions of the slave oligar
chy l"—perhaps they were included in it
also? If so, our good democratic directors
will be more careful than to meet at the time
and place this "vast assemblage" meets again.
It is a mystery how " Free Labor" could con
jure up a " vast assemblage," when, in reality,
there were only five Republicans there—not
enough to compose the officers of the Club
without " impressing into the service" an
American—unless it would be by a process
of " Mental Arithmetic" in which he certain
ly excels. I have only further to say—"hon
esty is the best policy." Such " bleeding
Kansas" humbuggery don't take here—the
democracy of "Old Jackson" will report fa
vorably for Buck and Breck and the whole
4 , ' What Has He Done ? "
This question was asked in regard. to Mr.
BUCHANAN - , some days ago by the "Daily
News," of Philadelphia, and since that time
it has been reiterated by almost all the pa
pers opposed to the Democracy. The ques
tion is absurd. We will answer it, and give
a few of the important things which Mr. Bu
chanan has done for his State and nation.
1. Ile volunteered to defend his country
against foreign invaders in 1814.
2. Ile labored zealously in the Pennsylva
nia Legislature, in ISIS, for the interest of
his native State, and saved a recurrence of a
monetary panic by his prudence and elo
3. Ile served ten years in the Congress of
the United States, and during the whole of
that time performed no act which did not
meet with the entire approbation of his con
4. He originated an amendment to the pe
nal code of the Federal Government, provid
ing for the punishment of crimes, which
amendment was advocated by Webster, and
became the law of the land.
5. He negotiated a treaty with Russia,
which secured to the United States all the
privileges extended to most of the nations,
and which treaty remains in force to this
G. He served as Chairman of the Commit
tee of Foreign Affairs in the United States
7. He served as Chairman of the Judiciary
Committee of the United States Senate.
8. He advocated the establishment of a
Sub-Treasury, and aided as much as any
man in the Union in having that wise meas
ure incorporated in our Government.
9. He stood in the foremost rank of the de
fenders of General Jackson, and voted to ex
punge from the Journal of the Senate the
resolution censuring that great man.
10. He first proclaimed the Democratic
doctrine on the Tariff question, and his views
on this subject were reiterated by Andrew
Jackson in (me of his messages to Congress.
11. He aided as much as any man living
in securing, California and New Mexico to
the United States.
12. He prevented war on the Central Ameri
can question, and cemented, by his prudence
and ability, the bonds of amity between Great
Britain and the United States.
These are a few of the many things he has
done during his long course of public service,
and we ask, what living statesman has done
more? We have set these acts down from
memory, and if our opponents are not an
swered we will be happy to reply to them

More about Kansas-,-Lane Stationed at
INDEPENDE: , .:CE, 3410., Aug. 31, 1856.
MR. EDlTOR:—Enclosed please find an ex
tra from the Dispatch office, in this .city, giv
ing an account of the action between the pro-
Slavery men and the Abolitionists, at the
town of Ossawattomie. I have no doubt the
facts stated in the extra are substantially cor
rect, and may be relied upon. I saw the ex
press who came in, and he gave the same
statement. The leader, Brown, who is said
to have been killed, was a notorious man in
all this country, was known as a noted rob
ber, and has been in the Penitentiary for his
crimes. He was formerly from Illinois, but
more recently an inhabitant of this State.—
He was a fit lieutenant of the Abolition for
ces, and has met his deserts. The main body
of the Abolitionists are, at Lawrence, under
the command of Lane. It was doibted, for
some time, whether Lane was really there ;
but it is now known for certain that he is
present, as he has thrown off the red wig,
with which he was disguised, and declared
himself publicly. Both the pro-Slavery and
Free State settlers are leaving their homes
and joining their friends, the latter princi
pally going into Lawrence.
The Territorial Militia, some eight hun
dred strong, under Richardson, are to the
North of Lawrence, and in a position to cut
off all Abolition reinforcements ; while the
Missourians, some twelve hundred strong, are
marching up towards that place, in order to
attack it, when the two forces will act in con
cert. If the troops of the United States do
not interfere to prevent an action between
the opposing parties, you may expect to hear,
in a few days, of a bloody battle at Lawrence.
The blood is up on both sides, and discreet
counsel will avail nothing if the parties come
in contact. This unfortunate state of things
is greatly to be deplored, by every person,
and I am well satisfied, the Black Republi
cans are alone answerable for it. There was
peace in the Territory, since the disturbances
last May, until Lane and his ragamuffin Ab
olition cohorts entered it about a month ago.
Their attack upon Franklin and Col. Titus'
house was without a shadow of justification
or excuse, as were also the numerous depre
dations upon property in different parts of
the country. There is not one word of truth
in the Abolition story, that the people of
Franklin had built a block house in that place.
The town consisted of some twenty-five light
frame houses, and one log house used as a
tavern, into which the men of the place as
sembled for protection on the night of the at
tack. Neither is it true that the pro-Slavery
men had built a line of block houses across
the Territory, from which they intended to
issue to attack the Free State men. These
things, are sheer Abolition fabrications, offer
ed to palliate the bloody deeds.
There is not much excitement here, but
there seems a settled determination to chas
tize the Abolitionists thoroughly. It is not
at all surprising that the people of Missouri
should step over the borders to help their
friends and relatives, and which they are as
much justified in doing as the Abolitionists
are coming into the Territory, in armed bands,
for hostile purposes. The course of both par
ties is much to be regretted. The war is just
begun—who can tell where and when it will
end? W. W. H. D.
From the Blair County Whig
.Alex. C. Mullin.
The Senatorial Conferees for this District,
belonging to the American party, met at Al
toona, on Thursday last, and on the first bal
lot, nominated ALEX. C. MULLIN, of Cambria
County, for State Senator. We feel sorry,
for the sake of the District, the character of
the party which nominated him, the interests
of the people of Pennsylvania, and the cer
tainty of throwing the District into the hands
of the Locofocos, that they nominated this
man MULLIN. If bargains of this kind are
to be made by candidates in the several
Counties in order to promote the weak and
obnaxious of the party, the people will repu
We may as well state it now as in the fu
ture that the Blair County Whig will in no
way prostitute itself by aiding in the election
of ALEX. C. MULLI'. Any man of charac
ter in the District would have received our
unqualified support, but in the present crisis,
we hope the Republicans will select a man
and go into the contest against Locofocoism,
and endeavor to succeed.
The Black Republican freedom "shriekers"
frequently refer to the three-fifths provision
of the Constitution as conferring a political
power on the South which the North does
not enjoy, and they denounce it as monstrous,
and something which should not be endured.
Not content with confining themselves strict
ly to the truth, they take more than poetic
license, and tell us that, for every three-fifths
of his negroes the Southern planter has a
vote at the ballot-box. This is simply a bald
face falsehood. In no state in the Union can
one man cast more than one vote. We have
adverted to this before—but as the falsehood
is still kept in circulation we think it our du
ty to clinch it once more.—The three-fifths
provision simply gives the right to the South
to have every five negroes counted as three
in the aportionment for representation in
Congress—and when the aportionment is 90,-
000, inhabitants for every member of Con
gress, it requires just 150,000 slaves to be
entitled to one ; while, in the North, each ne
gro counts as much as a white man in the
enumeration, and every 90,000 negroes give
us a representative in Congress. The North,
therefore, instead of being the loser by the
operation of the three-fifth basis, is decidedly
the gainer, and all the groans uttered by the
negro-worshippers over this "great outrage"
as they call it, are either the result of igno
rance or hypocrisy—or, more probably, the
promptings of that demoniacal spirit which
seeks, at any price, to dissolve the Union.
If the same rule were observed at the South
as at the North in the enumeration of negroes,
that much abused section of the country
would have twenty more representatives in
Congress than it now has.
These are simple truths which every Nor
thern man should know, so as not to be led
astray by the assertions of the hired traitors
who are now traversing the State, scattering,
wherever they go, "arrows, firebrands and

IMPORTANT TO EVERYB4DY.,
For the last three years, I have been engaged in a bn-
siness known only to myself, and, comparatively, few
others. whom I have instructed for the sum of S• 200 each,
which has averaged inc at the rate of $3.000 to $5,000 per
annum ; and having made arrangements to go to Europe
next Spring, to engage in the stone business, I am willing
to give full instructions in the art to any person in the
United States or Canadas, who will remit me the sum of
$l. lam induced, from the success I have been favored
with, and the many thankful acknowledgments 1 have re
ceived from those whom I have instructed, and' who are
making from $5 to $l5 PER DAY at it, to give any person an,
opportunity to engage in this business, which is easy,
pleasant, and very profitable, at a small cost. There is pos
itively NO Ilumnuo in the matter. References of the best
class can be given as regards its character, and I can refer
to persons whom I have instructed, who will testify that
they are making from $5 to $l5 per day at the same. It
is a business in which either ladies or gentlemen can en
gage, and with perfect ease make a very handsome income.
Several ludias in various parts of New York State, Penn
sylvania and Maryland, whom I have instructed, are now
snaking from $3 to $0 per day at it. It is a GENERAL BUS/-
NESS, and but a few shillings is required to start it. Upon
receipt of $l, I will immediately send to the applicant a
printed circular containing full instructions in the art,
