THE HUNTINGDON GLOBE, A DEMOCRATIC FAMILY JOURNAL, DEVOTED TO LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS, &C.
that year, signed, in conjunction with Many
others in Philadelphia, a letter, addressed to
the Vice President, applauding him for that
vote, and proffering him the protection 'of
their approbation. How could a thinking
and intelligent people trust such a party as
conservators of State interests ? So much
for what they have done in Pennsylvania. Now
what more do they do in 1858 ? In their
platform of principles, as set forth by their
State Convention, they abandon "protection
for the sake of protection," and adopt the
Democratic doctrine of " a revenue Tariff,
with discrimination for protection." They
in substance, announce their conversion
to the Polk policy in the adjustment of a Tar
iff. This is by no means, an isolated instance
of the yielding of our opponents to the truths
of Democracy. The history of the country
affbrds many illustrations of a similar char
acter, among which may be pointed out the
fact of their having been at one time, the en
thusiastic advocates of a United States Bank.
Now, they stigmatize such an institution as
an "obselete idea." Again, they opposed,
with the utmost bitterness and violence, the
establishment of the Sub-Treasury system—
they are now its friends and admirers.—
They fought for a distribution of the proceeds
of the public lands—they have now abandon
ed that measure, by taking out that plank
from their platform. So much for what the
Republian party has done in Pennsylvania.
Mr. Pershing called the attention of his
hearers to the course pursued by the Repub
lican party in relation to a Tariff for protec
tion, in their last National Convention. He
showed, that they "sang dumb" on that ques
tion altogether, by not giving it even a pass
ing notice, And yet, we were told last night,
that to them (the Republican party of the
country) we can only look for safety—for
protection "from all the evils to which flesh
is heir." They talk about not trusting the
Democracy of the country, who established
the free institutions which we enjoy—who
gave birth to Liberty—nursed it in its infan
cy, and now, after half a century's devoted
and unremitting care, is its defender against
assaults from without our borders, as well as
from within our own household. Yes, there
would be great safety in trusting to a party
which changes principles and names as easi
ly and rapidly as the chameleon does its col
ors !—a party, which possesses no fixity of
purpose, save that of realizing the spoils of
To cap the climax of the dissimulation of
the Republican party, in relation to proteu
tion, we have only to cast a glance at the acts
of the House of Representatives of 1857, in
which there was a large Republican majority.
In the first place, they elected Mr. Banks as
speaker, v)lif) was and is the advocate of a re
duction of the duty upon Co.tr, and Ittox.—
rndeed, the Republican party, in the New
England States, is almost a unit in support
of a /ow duty upon Coal and Iron. But when
this Repulican House of Representatives got
to work, what did they do with the Tariff of
1846 ? When that party had the power, did
they increase the duties upon the imports ?
No! no! they did no such thing. On the con
trary, they remodeled the Tariff of 1846, by
Dzer.EAsixn the duties. They passed the pre
sent Tariff, which they themselves now saw
has paralized the business of the country,
and brought bankruptcy upon us. Yet, in
the face of this not-to-be-disputed fact, they
would insult the intelligence of the people,
by the endeavor to impose upon them false
hood for truth, and hypocracy for sincerity.
They talk about the Iron and Coal interests
of Pennsylvania, when they dare not deny
that a Republican Senator from Maine, (Sen
ator Evans) was the first to advocate the en
tire repeal of all duties upon Railroad Iron
—that the Republican Tariff of 1857 reduces
the duty upon Iron from 30 per cent (as im
posed by the Tariff of 1846,) to 24 per cent.
Moreover, it is the Republican doctrine of the.
New England States, that, not only should
Railroad Iron be admitted free of duty, hut
that there should be refunded, out of the Na
tional Treasury, to Railroad companies who
have finished their roads, the amount of duty
which they have paid upon the Iron used in
their construction. Now, is not this it most
beautiful illustration of a desire to protect
We have not time to follow Mr. Pershing
in his all convincing, candid and argumenta
tive address any further. To appriciate it,
you should have heard it. We will venture
to say, that no one comprising his audience
left dissatisfied with the man or his speech.
In conclusion, he boldly defined his position
on the Tariff question, as he had previously
done on that of Slavery. lie said that, if
elected, he would advocate an ixentisn of
duties upon Coal and Iron—that as other
States had their peculiar Tariff politics, he
was fur inaugurating a Pennsylvania policy
—that when that question came up before
Congress, he was for the mutual interest of
and advocate such an adjustment of its pro
visions, as will yield more revenue, and, at
the same time, afford greater protection to
our Iron and Coal interests."
In referring to the efforts of our oppo
nents, to lug in the Tariff question as a party
question, and of which they assume to be,
par excellence, the peculiar advocates and de
fenders, Mr. P. handled them without gloves.
As said before, he reverted to the fact of
Daniel Webster's having been, at one time,
the advocate of free trade ; also, to the fact,
all the States of the Union, if such can be
effected without detriment to that of our own;
but, if such a desideratum cannot be realized,

HUNTINGDON BRASS BAND.—This excellent

the week of the Encampment, We think it
one of the best bands wo ever heard, and
consider it an honor to the town whence it
bails. On Wednesday evening they favored
our citizens with some of their delightful
music. While in this place they won' for
themselves the respect and esteem of our cit
izens by the gentlemanly manner in which
they conducted themselves.
At Pine Grove, we understand, this band
serenaded the ladies at their respective resi
dences, for which compliment the ladies pre
sented the members with two magmficient
cakes. The presentation speech in behalf
of the ladies by Mr. A. Blymyer and received
in behalf of the band by Maj. S. Brisbin.
After the speeches were delivered, the band
played " Gentle Annie," after which they
mounted their wagon, and amid vociferous
cheers, took their departure for home.

Prior. 0. J. Woos—Dear &r: Some time last summer
we were induced to use some of your Hair Restorative.
and its effects were so wonderful, we feel it our duty to
you and the afflicted, to report it.
Our little son's head for some time had been perfectly
covered with sores, and some called it scald head. The
hair almost entirely came off in consequence, when a
friend, seeing his sufferings. advised us to use your Resto
rative; we did so with little hope of success, but, to our
surprise, and that of all our friends, a very few applica
tions removed the disease entirely, and a new and luxu
riant crop of hair soon started out, and we can now say
that our boy has as healthy a scalp, and as luxuriant a
crop of hair as any other child. We can, therefore. and
do hereby recommend your Restorative, as a perfect re
medy for all diseases of the scalp and hair.
We are, yours respectfully,

PROF. 0..1. Woon—Dcar Sir: I have used two bottles
of Professor Wood's Hair Restorative, and can truly say it
is the greatest discovery of the age for _restoring and
changing the Hair. Ilulbro using it•l was a man of sev
enty. My Hair has now attained its original color. You
can recommend it to the world without the least fear, as
my ease was one of the worst kind.
