or to enfeeble the sacred ties which now link together the
'various parts."—George Washington.
"If I know myself, I am a politician neither of the East,
nor of the West, of the North nor of the South—l there
fore shall forever avoid any expressions, the direct tendency
of which must be to create sectional divisions, and at
length disunion, that worst of all political calamities."—
James Buchanan..
"I am connected with no party that has for its object
the extension of slavery, norwith any to prevent the peo
'pie of a state or territory from deciding the question of its
existence or non-existence with them for themselves.—The
'democratic party is not a pro-slavery party—it is neither
pro-Slavery nor anti-slavery."---John C. Breckinridge.
"Froin my soul I respect the laboring man. Labor is
the foundation of the wealth of every country; and the
free laborers of die North deserve respect both for their
probity and Their intelligence. IfeaVen forbid that I should
do them wrong? Of all the countries of the earth we
ought to have the most consideration for the laboring man."
—James Buchanan,
"That - Country is most prosperous where labor com

"We are all Equal before God and the Constitution."
James Buchanan.

Hon. JOSIAH RANDALL, of Philadelphia;
'who, twelve years ago addressed the citizens
of Huntingdon, advocating the cause . of the
Constitution, the Union, and TrENHY CLAY,
on. Monday" eveningoccupied the same stand
advocating the cause of the Constitution, the
Union, and JAMES BUCHANAN. We have but
to say that his speech was a, powerful one and
will doubtless prove very effective, in its re=
sults. He appealed to his Old Line Whig
friends to do as he was doing—as their fellow
Whigs in Philadelphia intend to do—vote
for JAMES BUCHANAN. We wish every man
in Huntingdon county could have heard the
old patriot.

your part in the general work which the
cause requires. By this, and the voice of the
United Democracy on the great day of elec
tion will proclaim BITCLIA.NAK and BRECSIN
RIDGE President and Vice President.
Hear their Treason !
It has been repeatedly charged by the Dem
ocrats, that the leaders of Black Republican
ism are traitors at heart—that they hate the
American Union, defy the Constitution, and
long for the overthrow and destruction of
both. We have many extracts emanating
from those men to show that this is true, and
here is another of the same kind.
A writer in the Progressive Age, a Fremont
paper down in Belfast, Maine, says--
(and I do so with honest convictions of the
Traitors in our Midst!
The following letter will show the charac
ter of the men imported by the Black Re
publican Party from Kansas into Pennsylva
nia for the purpose of deceiving and hUmbug
ging our people on the Kansas question. It
will do very well for such men to talk and
prate about "bleeding Kansas," so long as
they are well paid for it. The individual al
luded to, while in Kansas, played the part of
a traitor and an outlaw, and was doubtless
supported by the igassachusetts Aid Society,
and after having been compelled to obey the
authorities and submit to the lards of the Ter
ritory, he came to Pennsylvania as an
of the same society, Ito denounce our Presi
dent, the democratic party,. and insult the in
telligence of our people. The vote at the last
election, shows what reliance was'placed upon
Smith's statements.
Mn. Lzwrs—itry Dear Sir:—The man call
ed Smith, who spoke in this place on "Kan
sas,"- a few days since, I am not personally
acquainted with ; but I do know that a true
bill has been found against 'him for "HIGH
TREASON," and that he is now under, bonds
to appear and stand a trial. In Kansas Ter
ritory,- he is, and has been actively engaged
with the party in rebellion to the govern
ment.' They are anti-State Rights men or
Abolitionists, and in Kansas, openly avow
their hostility to -the Constitution and the
Union. I would rather such 'men should de
nounce than praise me. .

Freemen of Huntingdon County J' Pre
pare for the . Great Contest '
All the questions involved in the Presiden
tial contest have been discussed—and those
who are not enlightened now, never will be.
One great fact, says a cotereporary, was
demonstrated on Tuesday, the 14th of Octo
ber. The Democratic party—always true to
the Constitution and the Union—can discom
fit and overwhelm any party or parties, com
bination or combinations, composed of the
isms of the day, and resting their claims to
popular favor on the political bigotry and
narrow Mindedness which form the corner
stones of Black Republicanism.
On the State ticket we aehieved a glorious
victory—one that will be memorable in the
history of the Union. On the Electoral ticket
—if true to our principles and to our party—
we will achieve a greater and more signal
triumph—one that will still forever the howl
ings of faction, and give peace and prosperity
to the whole nation.
What•has the country-to gain from the per
petual agitation of the slavery question ?
Citizens of Huntingdon county ! without
regard to party distinction, we appeal to you,
and ask you, What have we to gain by it ?
Will the fanatical agitation which reigns
today give freedom to a single bondman, ,en
large your own liberties, add one centto your
ivealth, or, in the slightest degree, contribute
to your welfare and comfort as a people? '•
We leave the solution of the question .to
yourselves. Look, calmly, coolly, deliberate
ly, at the candidates who are presented for
your' suffrage. Ponder well before you cast
your votes.
The Democratic party present to you JAMES
Not a stranger—not a man unknown to
you, and undistinguished in the history of
his country—but your neighbor, born and ed
ucated on the soil of Pennsylvania, which he
has honored and distinguished by a brilliant
career of statesmanship, surpassed by few,
if any, of his predecessors or cotemporaries.
Such is the Democratic candidate. He is
known to you all, either personally or by rep
utation, as a man of unblemished morals, ac
knowledged ability, and large experience in
public affairs. He is identified with you in
all your interests, and has served you faith
fully, in various capacities, for ' more than
thirty years,
Agitators and demagogues—men of narrow
minds and fierce passions—men who misin
terpret the Constitution and hate the Union
—talk to you about " bleeding Kansas" and
the " Ostend Conference"- - =about our domes
tic and foreign policy—identifying Mr. Bu-
CRANAN with what, in their madness, they
term the " atrocious Democratic policy," and
ask you to vote against him simply because
he is a member of that party,
And who do they present to you as Mr.
BUCHANAN'S competitors?
If MILLARD FILLMORE were the only; or
even the prominent, opposing candidate, We
should only object tehim that he' is not a
Pennsylvanian, and that, as Pennsylvania
has never had a son of hers in the Presidenz
tial chair, she should, in consideration of her
own interest and her own honor, vote for her
own son in preference to a stranger, This is
all we should say. We acknowledge MIL
LARD FILLMORE to be a tried statesman and
a national man, and we couldd bear his elec
tion without a murmur.
But 'he "is' not the strong man against whom
Mr. BUCHANAN has to contend.
The wire-pullers, the political hucksters
and thimble-riggers, JOHNSTON, POLLOCK, STE
VENS, PENROSE, and such men, are striving
to throw the Electoral vote of Pennsylvania
And who is JOHN C. FREMONT?
A stranger toyou all. A man whose birth
place is unknown, and who ; outside of his
career, as an explorer, has no honorable ante
cedents. - A. man who, for twenty-one days'
service in the U. S. Senate, charged. and re
ceived full pay for the session, and who is
now indebted - thousands of dollars , to the gov
ernment for .moneys overpaid to him on false
certificates. "
SUeli. is the Black Republican candidate
, Citizens of Huntingdon county, on -Tues
day next you must choose between this' man
—this strangerand JAMES BtrentorArr, the
honest son of your
,own State.
Be not deceived by the artifice or sophistry
of pedling politicians
Now, fellow-citizens, the time for argum — ent
has gone by, and.the time for action arrived.
Work day and night! On election day, go to
the polls EARLY, and VOTE. • After you have
done this, see that preparations - are made to
bring out, the ACED and INFIRM ! ,Oring out
the old gray haired Patriarchs ! Their votes
are sure for Buchanan. In the meantime,
LOOK WELL TO TOUR TICKETS ! and see that you
cast no vote that will dishonor your own State
or endanger the Union. Mark our last words,
Poll Every Vote!

The Foreign Party
We now and then hear a great deal about
what some are pleased to term . the "Foreign
Party." The Journal editors were near be
thrown intnhysterics over• the success : of
the 'Foreign Party !' A few months agothey
boasted that a large portion of the adopted
vote would be cast for Fremont, and even
condescended to flatter the 'honest Germans!'
Look, reader, at the horde of foreign German
Infidels and Revolutionists, who have • been
expelled their own countries, where they Sat
at defiance all Law and Order, and . preaehed
insurrection and revolution, now the hirelings
of John C. Fremont and the Revolution party
in this country! These fellows: are opposed
to the Christian Religion—opposed to the
SABBATH—opposed to all LAW, human
and divine—opposed to peace, order and tran
quility, and forever engaged in revolutionary
schemes. Their principles are at war with
society. They are SOCIALISTS—and would
violate the sanctity of the marriage bed and
degrade mankind to the level of the dumb
brutes of the forest—to a licentious, promis
cuous free' living! They are foreigners, with
foreign principles. One of these characters,
named Hcecker, in a speech delivered before
a German Fremont meeting, extracts from
which appear in New 'York papers, had . the
rampant audacity and impudence, to declare
that the, " Democratic party of. the United
States is a pa,rty- of drunkards and. scoundrels."
Another declared, "We need a Revolution
here !!" Do not such sentiments strike every
honest man with alarm ? Here then we have
the Fremont party clearly identified with the
only class of Foreigners from whom we as a
people .have anything to fear ! But they
plead." Free Speech!' What is to be done?
How are they and their principles to be de
feated ? We answer—by the votes of every
friend of his Country—of every friend of Lib
erty, Humanity, Christianity. Now is the
time for men to show their patriotism. Let
the good men of all
_Parties rally around the
standard of JAMES BUCHANAN, -the rep
resentative of the 'American people in this
contest—let us unite to a man in beating back
the surging tide of Infidelity and Revolu
tion—and when this shall have been accom
plished, we can lay the flattering unction to
,our souls that we have done our duty..-It
will be a grand moral triumph. It will be a
blow against Disunion, Revolution and An
archy—it will elect JAMES BUCHANAN,
and restore 'peace and confidence to our dis
tracted country. Think of these things, you
that are interested.
The Clergy not all for Fremont.
The New York Journal of Comturce says:
" Almost all the clergy in this part of the
country are claimed for Fremont. The claim
is, in a good measure, unfounded. We know
that a number of our most distinguished cler
gymen are in favor of Buchanan. A minis
ter of the Lutheran Church, also a pastor of
a Reformed Dutch Church, have each; thro'
our columns, expressed a belief that a major
ity of their clergy—in the case of the Luther
ans a very large majority acre for Buchanan
and Breckinridge."
In Huntingdon county a majority : of the
Clergy, we believe, cast their votes for the
democratic party, at the late election—a rare
thing ; however, in this locality. But there
were a few whose conduct Seas as inconsistent
and contradictory as are the principles, or
rather professions, of the opposition. To our
mind it seems a little strange that a. minister
of the Gospel Should one day denounce the
Know Nothings without stint or measure, and
the next, turn around, and go it "the whole
hog," by voting, and electioneering violently
among the members of his congregation for
Know-Nothingism—the offspring of Mr. Ed
ward Buntline, the greatest blaCk - guard in the
land; for Black Republicanism, whiehwas
hatched and is brooded by all traitors in
the country ; for Revolution, Anarchy, Spir
itualism and Infidelity, preached by the Ger
man Infidels and Red Republicans of France
Who are now traversing the whole western
country irudoctrinating these principles into
the minds of the peoPle. We might also - add
that the devil is supposed to, have an agen
cy in this matter." • •:.
We are charitable enough to presume that
all the Clergy done what they thought was
their duty, but we cannot help remarking
that a few were actuated more by fanaticism
and• prejudice than any thing else—Aat -a
few strained at a gnat but gourmandized
camel -hoofs, hide and all. It is the
cal clergy that are for Fremont, and not the
pious. ministers of.the Gospel.
Or Republicans."

Boston Post. r Read it:

The Huntingdon American, of last week
contained the following screeching :"
The annbria Trthnne, in speaking of the election, says
"that - the Irish and Dutch took charge of the election in
Conemaugh District No.l, and_ drove the Native .voters
from the polls, by which - the Union State ticket loskone
hundred votes in Cambria county." * * '* Americans!
shall these things be permitted? Are the Native born
American citizens to be controlled and governed by the
thieves, murderers, and exiled paupers of Ireland and Ger
It is a happy thing, no doubt, for the Know
Nothings that they can cover their late over
whelming defeat by a tirade of abuse against
the " . Irish and Dutch"—by uttering afoul
falsehood. . We invite the attention of every
candid man to the following truthful account
of the affair given by G. NELSON SMITH, Esq.,
of the Johnstown Echo, a man of unimpeach
able veracity. It effectually gives the lie to
the above statement :
'lnfamy Unparalleled. ~
Familiar as has been the 'wickedness and bitterness of
the opposition party to the people of this locality, yet no
instance of their perfidy and corruption will show a par
allel with the iniquity of their conduct about the Cambria
City election.
In the first place, knowing that there would be a ma
jority against them in the Cambria City box, they had de
termined that there should be no election held there. Con
emaugh township was last year divided into three election
districts, and the voters had neglected to elect their boards
of officers at the Spring election. They had consequently
to meet at the election house in each of these districts on
the morning of the election to choose a board of officers.—
The opposition knew there would be a Democratic major
ity in the Cambria City box, and had threatened weeks be
fore the election, that there should be no election held
Long after the, boardliad been, organized, and they were
-proceeding quietly and peaceably with the election, some
of the rowdies of this borough were sent there armed and
_equipped for the express purpose of raising a disturbance
and breaking up the election. There is no doubt about the
thing being concocted some days before. The d—d Irish
and Dutch were to be assaulted and driven from the polls.
This arrangement the opposition attempted to carry out.
Rowdies of desperate character from this place, who had
310 business there, and- were not citizens of that district,
went there armed,„ and by the most base and dastardly
conduct, goaded the qualified voters of the district to such
a degree that they were compelled to drive the intruders
from 'the ground. . •
This is a fair and plain statement of facts concerning
the disturbance at the polls in Cambria City on Tuesday
last. :Yet thellepublicans, (?) as if their very hearts were
indoctrinated 'with the virus of hatred and anti-christiani
ty, have perverted truth and reason, and charged the poor
Irish and Germans with being guifty, of acts of the most
diabolical character—acts which, these Black Republican
"freedom shriekers" encouraged their own ruffians to com
mit. -
It appears as if a constitutional infirmity of the
opposition to deal in falsehoods and misrepresentations.—
The most villainous falsehoods have been circulated by
them for political effect, until they have become complete
ly depraved, and the depravity has become chronic.
We will at this time say nothing more upon this subject
but will revert to it at another time. We have just passed
through one ordeal, and are in the midst of another.—
When we have passed through it, wo intend to'devote our
attention to the conduct and bitter invectives of some dap
per gentlemen of this place.—Johnstown .Echo.
Is Col. Fremont an Infidel?
Horace Greeley has gone to the - trouble of
issuing a pamphlet to refute the charge that
his presidential candidate is or ever - was a
Roman Catholic. lie now turns to a still
graver charge, but is content to state it and
the authority on which it is made. The Tri
bune of a: late date says:'
" There is still further evidence that Col.
Fremont is not a Roman Catholic? coivr.
So, Horace Greeley is willingto admit that
Col. Fremont is an infidel, because that proves
that he is not a Catholic. He gives Commo
dore Stockton as the witness who asserts the
fact of Col. Fremont's infidelity, and virtu
ally concedes its correctness by quoting it as
proof that he is not a Catholic. The conclu
sion is legitimate that Mr. Greeley thinks an
infidel for President would be better than a
Roman Catholic. We have heretofore insist
ed that the tendency, of abolitionism is to in
fidelity. We did not expect the Tribune to
admit it quite so early. •
Amalgam.ation—Negro Suffrages.
The Senaca, (Olt Advertiser, Speaking of
a recent Black Republican gathering at that
place, says : -
" At the Fremont mass meeting the Repub
licans from Oberlin marched arm in aria
with the negroes, and nearly all the "kuller
ed pussons" on the ground wore silk badges
with Fremont and Dayton printed thereon."
This is but one of many incidents (says
the Detroit Free Press) of a similar charac
ter Which have occurred during the present
campaign. And not only have negroes walk
ed in Fremont processions, but negroes have
addressed Fremont meetings ! What do white
men think of this ? Do they Wish negroes

and socially—with themselves , they do

"At a recent' fusion meeting in Bucyrus,

What have we Gained ?
PENNSYLVANIA with her 27 electoral votes
INDIANA with her 13 electoral votes
" To which add 120 votes from the Southern
'States—making 160 votes—or 11 more than
suificient to elect. The result in Pennsylva
nia and Indiana will settle the question in
New York, .Rhode Island, Connecticut, New
Hampshire, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois,
California and Wisconsin. These States, will
votes, which added to the above will give
them in all 242 votes out of the 296 compos
ing the electoral colleges.
We have thus answered the question at the
head of this article. But in addition to en
suring the election of our candidates for the
Presidency and Vice Presidency, the result
of Tuesday's work in Pennsylvania and In
diana aetermineS the still greater question of
the perpetuity of the Union. Black Repub
licanism, alias Disunionism, has been killed
outright, and its dead carcase will be buried
so deep in November that the hand of resur
rection cannot reach it.
What We Want.
We want (says the Pittsburg Post) to elect
Buchanan entirely
„by Northern electoral
votes. Can it be done.? Is it not at least
possible.- The North has 176 electoral
including •California. We cannot doubt that
New Hampshire, Connecticut. and Rhode Is
land will east their 15 electoralvotes for Penn
sylvania's favorite son. Of Nevi York and
New Jersey we have, no doubt. Our friends
there assure us that all is well. That makes
57 ; Pennsylvania as : perfectly sure-84;
Michigan, Indiana,'lllinois added-114. In
Otio, it is said that the Fillmore electoral
ticket will poll nearly 50,000 votes. Take
that fact, and the late election result together,
and the State is sure for Buchanan ; that
makes 137; California brings it up to 141.
In lowa there is a separate Fillmore ticket,
and the last election there was persistently
claimed as a Fillmore triumph. If the Fill
more ticket polls-even 3,000 votes, the Demo
crats will carry the State. This makes 145.
It takes 149 to elect.
Now then for Wisconsin. The local elec
tions in many places in that State last spring,
indicated a rapid Democratic gain, and in
most of the places a decided Democratic ma
jority. The Wisconsin Democratic papers
assure us ,of a triumph there. Gentlemen
from there are inclined to the same belief.—
Wisconsin has 5 electoral votes ; that would
make 150.
Now, if the Democrats work with all their
might in all the Northern States, from this to
the evening of the 4th of November next,
they may elect Buchanan exclusively with
Northern votes; and then set down the 120
Southern votes as purely a •compliment to
Northern nationality, constitutionality, pat
riotism•and justice. That is what we want.

A cotemporary describes the following in
cident which occurred at the Fre:mond Barba
cue in Morgan county, Michigan :
" The most characteristic part of the whole
affair occurred at the table : A mechanic who
had hitherto been a strong 'Fremont man was
on the ground with his wife and child. At
a given word he attempted to cross the rope
to. the table ; but was met by one of the. mar-,
shals and told to stand back and give room
for the ladies. He stepped back as he, was
told, when seven or eight women, "as black
as the ace of spades," advanced before him
to the table, and ate with the rest of the Fre
mont ladies and gentle Men. This was too
much for him. He tore the Fremont badge
from his breast, and swore that although he
was a poor mechanic, he was yet a little bet
ter than a negro. He said - that if he and
his Wife were to be thrust back from a Fre-
Mont barbacue to give place to negroes, he
no longer was a Fremont man; andimmedi
ately stamped the, Fremont badge under. his
feet and declared his intention to vote for
Buchanan. We are informed that four or
five ,others did likewise. It is said that not
less than twenty negroes ate at the first ta
What do our mechanics and our laboring
men think of the indignity above described?
Such is however, the inevitable tendency of
Black Republicanism. The creed of that
party is "down with the white man, and up
with the nigger." • It is high time that, the
laboring men of the North shOuld see the
consequences, ofthe Success of the special ne
gro sympathizers. 'Let three million of slaves
be liberated and they would fall upon the
people of. the North as, di'd the locusts upon
the Egyptians. Our people, too, would re
gard, thel6warip of blacks as great an laic . -
tioii as did those of. Egypt the swarm of in
sects. If Pennsylvania should receive no
more than her proportion, her citizens would
be infested with about half a million.
What effect. would such legions of indigent
creatures have upon the wages.paid for man
ual labor ? Is it not obvious that the price
would be greatly diminished ? That portion
which would fail to obtain employment, would
become a charge upon the communities in
which they should be. Our . poor houses, if
'not our prisons, would be filled, and inCreas
,ed taxation:would necessarily follow. Scenes
similar to that which transpired at the Mich
igan barbaCue, would be matters of almost
every day occurrence. White men and wo-
Men would be shoved aside to make room for
ignorant and insolent Sambos and Dinas.
If the mechanic—the white laboring men—
the freemen of the North—=wish to avert such
a calamity they must aid the Democracy in
overthrowing Black Republican abolitionism.

But our duty is not fully discharged.
We have utterly routed the enemies of Out
free institutions upon the sacred soil from
which the Declaration of Independence was
proclaimed, and upon which the Constitution
of the United States was adopted.
In the hour of victory it is howenr well to
remember that there are other obligations to
be fulfilled, and that an organization so com
plete, so admirable and so widely extended,
must still be adhered to.
Therefore, fellow-citizens, persevere in the
good work so nobly begun ; rejoice over the
magnificent triumph you have achieved ; and
remember that the 4th day of November, now
close at hand, is that day upOn which you are
to Complete the great work yesterday so aus
piciously commenced.
Pennsylvania, the great barrier . against
which the waves of sectionalism have dashed,
has maintained her proud integrity. While
all . the new world has looked upon her—while
all patriotic hearts have hoped that she would
stand firm in the midst of the terrible respon
sibility imposed on her—she has preserved a
noble moderation and an inexorable firmness.
She has repelled from her presence the men
who have been sent among her population, to
deceive and betray them.
The great victory we have achieved has
first of all, sustained our illustrious and be
loved Buchanan.
Here, in his own State; the torrent of fanati
cism has been stayed.
Here, where he was born, and where he
has lived a life of signal purity and patriot
ism, he has been upheld by the proud and
generous people of Pennsylvania.
The ennobling sentiment of State pride has
done much for us in this contest.
Our people have responded to their glorious
leader, to his history, and to the long list of
services which have immortalized his name ;
and. from this day henceforth it will be some
thing to say that a Pennsylvanian, true to
his country and true to himself, will not want
or wait for friends among his own fellow
The Platform of the Deinocratic National
Convention, upon which JAMES BUCHANAN
stands, has been vindicated; the great prin
ciple of popular sovereignty advocated in ev district and township in the State,
during this fearful conflict, has been. vindica
ted, and the aspersions upon his character
have been refuted and trampled under foot.
And the proud honor of achieving this
splendid result belong, not to the old:
cratic party alone, which, with reanimated
vigor, entered into the contest and persevered
to the end, but we are glad . to acknowledge
that it has been shared by thousands of na
tional Whigs who have assisted us with all
their energies, and who are henceforth to be
counted as our brothers, and our compatriots.
From this day till the 4th of November,
1856, let meetings be held in every School
District and township in the State.
Let us keep up the fire which now burns so
Let us not be deceived by the idea that the
opposition will be divided.
Fused on the 14th of October, and confused
by the tremendous and memorable rebuke
they have received, for trying to deceive the
people of the State, they will seek to shelter
themselves by another combination in No
They are enemies to us and to the Consti

or under what flag they rally.
. 'Those who have professed to be National
have sunk their Nationality in an eager de
sire to defeat the only National party in exis
tence; and those who were sectional have at
tempted to postpone or to apologize for their
sectionalism, in order to win a guilty victory.
Once more the Democratic State Central
Committee appeals to the National people of
the State to maintain their organization, and
to continue the work so nobly began, until it
is, as nobly finished on the 4th day of Novem
