A Pew Parting Words.
Before. another Globe shall have been is
the honest yeomanry of Huntingdon
county will have decided who shall be their
rulers. The present political campaign will
soon terminate, and we shall end it as we be
gan it, with sober words calmly expressed.
At our mast-head, will be found a county
ticket, composed of honest and competent men,
whose elevation to office by the free suffrages
of the people of this county, would be an hon.
or to old Huntingdon. . Nominated because
of their fitness for the positions, they would,
if elected, one and all, strive to serve the best
interests of the people.
'We have not before in this campaign, de
scended. to do the dirty work of vilifying the
candidates of the Opposition ticket, as the
Journal and American have done of the Dem
ocratic ticket, and we shall not now at the elev
enth hour, depart from our settled course.—
Vulnerable as some of the candidates of the
other ticket are in private affairs, we refrain,
as we before said we would, from polluting
our.lips and soiling our fair paper, with such
-labored effusions of slanderous abuse as are
weekly emitted from the portals of the Oppo
The candidates on our ticket are all well
known to the people of the county, and need
no studied eulogies from our pen, to introduce
them to the confidence of the public. They
need no hired scribblers to magnify their ability
and manufacture political capital—they need
no special trumpets to proclaim their fame—
they need no hired choirs to chant anthems
to their praise—they are plain men—they
are of the people—Amuse the people—and if
elected, will not be ABOVE the people.
Then, fellow citizens we ask, will you elect
them ? We believe you will. We are mis
taken in our estimate of the intelligence and
honesty of the voters of this county, if they
permit honest and competent men—ruthless
ly assailed as they are—to be defeated. If
they are elected, we shall rejoice—not over a
fallen and vanquished enemy—but in the tri
umph of the people over the schemes of cor
rupt political gamesters.
A Mistake Corrected
In the last American., there appears the
following sentence :
"Should the "sweet sparkler" fall short,
Africa can appropriate the ONE HUNDRED
DOLLARS which he received..for his services
as a member of the Town Council during the
This is the second time this matter has ap
peared in print. The accusation that Mr. A.
received such money is incorrect, and we have
charity enough to presume, that Mr. Nash
would not wilfully make this mis-statement.
The following certificate from Mr. Miller, the
Treasurer of the borough, is explicit:
I have been Treasurer of the borough of
Huntingdon for the last sixteen years. I
have .carefully examined the books in my
office, and can and do, state positively, that
J. Simpson Africa never received any com
pensation for his services as Assistant Bur
gess, or member of the Town Council of the
borough of Huntingdon.

se.- The Now Orleans True Delta of Sep
tember 18, in an article on the Charleston
Convention and its nominee, rebukes the
Southern politicians who declare they will
not support Judge Douglas if he is nomina
ted, and says: "Douglas represents the ad
vanced political sentiment Of the nation ; he
is on the true ground as regards the princi
ples upon which the durability of our insti
tutions must rest. lie has youth, uncommon
vigor of mind and body ; is possessed of cour
age, firmness, and gifts of eloquence, rarely
equalled ; and, above all living men, can in
voke in his favor the conservative and patri
otic feelings, as well as the popular confi
dence and love of the glorious Western por
tion of the Confederacy, which has never yet
been honorecl,,by having a Democratic candi- -
date for the Presidency taken from among
her intellectually stalwart sons."
The Difference. •
If Mr. 'Wigton is elected to the Legisla
ture, his bill will run as follows :
Salary, $7OO 00
Mileage 264 miles, 39 60
Stationery, 25 00
If, in the course of human events, Mr. Af
rica should be elected, his bill will run
Salary, $5OO 00
Mileage 194 miles, 29 10
Stationery, 25 00
Dir. 'Wigton's bill,
Saving to the Commonwealth, $2lO 50
At the Convention which nominated Mr.
Africa, the following resolution was passsed :
WHEREAS, It is the sentiment of the De
mocracy of Huntingdon county, that our Leg
islators should be paid a. reasonable but not
an exhorbitant salary for their labor, there
Resolved, That the candidate for Assem-,
bly this day nominated, be and he is hereby
instructed to use his best efforts to reduce the
salary of Legislators from $7OO to $,500 per
annum, and to refuse, if elected, to accept
more than five hundred dollars for his ser
Now, if the salary is reduced from $7OO to
$5OO, it will be a saving to the Common
wealth of $2OO on each member, which
amount, if multiplied by 133, the number of
members in the Senate and House, will
amount to the snug sum of $26,600 00—
equal to the whole State tax levied in the
counties of Huntingdon and Blair. What
think ye of this, farmers and mechanics?
A SMALL BUSINESS.—We have been in
formed that Mr. Wigton has been circulating
a story that Messrs. Africa and Speer were
trading off Capt. Galbraith, our candidate
for Commissioner, for votes for themselves in
Jackson and Barree townships. We are au
thorized to pronounce it wholly untrue.—
What better could we expect from a man
who traduces his opponent by branding him
as an infidel ?
3. Simpson Africa
The Opposition papers of this borough, in
the discharge of duty to their masters, have
been weekly failed with abusive articles
against our candidate for Assembly. Where
he is known, their scurrility is harmless.—
As personal detraction has been their policy
since the nomination, we have been tempted
to publish the following extracts from notices
of the press which we find among our exchan
ges, which silo* the esteem in which he is
held throughout the Commonwealth:
It gives us pleasure to record the nomina
tion of our youno. friend, J. Simpson Africa,
Esq., of Huntingdon, as a candidate for the
Legislature. No better man could have been
nominated for that post. lie is a talented
and rising young man, with a reputation for
honesty and integrity that is to be envied,
and we hope that he may be triumphantly
elected.--3EcConnellsburg (Fulton Co.) Dem
73.e—.Our esteemed friend, J. Simpson Af
rica, Esq., has been nominated by the Demo
crats of Huntingdon county for Assembly.—
He has been a clerk in the State Senate for
the last two sessions, and if elected will make
an excellent Representative.—Brounisville
(Fayette co.) Times.
A GOOD NOMINATION.—The Democra
cy of Huntingdon county has nominated J.
Simpson Africa, for several years transcri
bing clerk of the Senate, for the Assembly.—
This is a good nomination and should be well
supported by the Democracy of Huntingdon
county.—Norristown (Montgomery co.) Reg
Jae- The Democracy of Huntingdon co.,
have nominated an excellent county ticket,
and with such men as J. Simpson Africa for
Assembly, and George W. Speer for Sheriff,
ought to succeed. We are encouraged to be
lieve that the prospect for success is very fa
vorable. We hope to be able to record it.—
Lewistown (Mifflin co.) Democrat.
J. S. AFRICA.—The county will do herself
credit by electing Mr. Africa to the Assem
bly, for he is a young gentleman of intelli
gence and integrity, and could not fail to be
an efficient and useful legislator, who would'
be true to the interests of his constituents
and the welfare of the Commonwealth.—
J. S. AFRICA, ESQ.—We are gratified to
learn that our friend, J. Simpson Africa, of
Huntingdon, has received the Democratic
nomination for Representative in the Legisla
ture from that county. Mr. Africa is a
young man of fine talents.and unspotted in
tegrity. His election would be hailed where
ever he is known, as the triumph of an able
and worthy man. The people 'of Hunting
don county, can do themselves no greater
credit than to elect Mr. Africa to the Legis
lature, and we hope sincerely that they will
do so.—. Bedford Gazette.
J. SIMPSG,N AFRICA, ESQ.—We are pleased
to see that the Democracy of Huntingdon
county have nominated J. Simpson Africa,
Esq., for Assembly. Mr. A. is a gentleman
possessing qualifications well calculated to
make him a good legislator, besides which he
has the experience of several years in the
capacity of Clerk of the Senate, to aid him.
He can enter into the discharge of legislative
duties with the confidence and familiarity of
an old member.—Johnstown, (Cambria co.)
J. SimrsoN Ararc.l.—We aro pleased to see
the Democratic ticket in Huntingdon county
headedby J. Simpson Africa. When a
Transcribing Clerk in the Senate he made
many warm personal and political friends.—
In his manners he is one of the most affable
and obliging wen living. Such nominations
reflect much credit upon the party making
them.—Bloomfeld (Perry co.) Democrat.
Ser The Democrats of Huntingdon coun
ty have nominated J. Simpson Africa, Esq.,
for the Legislature. It is to be regretted
that our General Assembly cannot be filled
with such men, for then the Legislative Borer
would have no, occupation—the interest of the
people would be thoroughly protected, and
ere long the good work of paying the State
debt would be consummated. Mr. Africa
bas been a transcribing clerk in the Senate
for two years past, and in that position proved
himself a man of decided capacity and un
doubted integrity. As a legislator he would
show himself competent, honest, economical,
and true as steel to the best interest of the
masses of the people. We hope there is a
good prospect of his election.---lock Haven
(Clinton co.) Democrat.
We observe that the Derriocraky of
Huntingdon, have nominated 3. Simpson Af
rica for Assembly. Our Democratic friends
of that district-have good reason to be proud
of their condidato for this important position.
To many of our readers Mr. Africa is person
ally known, and those who do know him,
know that he is an. honest, straight-forward
man, and well qualified.to discharge the du
ties of the office which his numerous friends
are willing to bestow upon him.—Somerset

the trouble of referring to Carpenter.. Who,
in the profession, pretends to doubt, for .a

ers to their schools, and the rest to their
homes. Few associations make impressions
more enduring upon the heart than those , of
our school days ; and as a consequence, there
ire few separations more gloomy than the
parting of students. The daily intimacy of
,the study, the ball, the table, the class-room,
the chapel and the grove ; the interchange of
thought and sentiment; the impress of mind on

school-life, insensibly from, attachments not
easily broken. Often have I seen the pleas

the consciousness of present bereavement, and
tears of sorrow moistened the bright eyes
and stain the smiling faces of exhibition day.
And the student who turns away from the
scene of so many joys, conscious that his
school days are ended, that he must soon join
the hurrying march of active life, and be
'urged on by the throng, beyond the loved
scenes, and cherished friends - whose kindly
welcome shall greet him no more forever,
feels a loneliness, a heart-sinking, not un

hears the cold clods rattle over the senseless

If we find a bower of delight, where we fain
would fondly linger, times rapid wheels seem

From the Lewistown Democrat, Sept. 29.]
Our citizens were startled early on Satur
day morning last by, the announcement that
James Platt, of Ennisville, Huntingdon coun
ty, a private in the " Jackson Artillery,"
was mortally'wounded by a shot from a
musket in the hands of Edward Mills, of
- Patterson, a private in the " Ringgold Infan
try," at the Camp Ground, on the previous
night between 9 and 10 o'clock. Mr. Mills
was on duty as a Sentitel, and was strictly
"charged not to permit any person to pass
the line without giving the countersign.—
Mr. Platt approached the Camp, and was
challenged by Mr. Mills with " Who goes
there ?" to which the former replied, " Hold
on, stranger—..l want to speak with you,"
and walked towards the latter. When with
in a few paces of him, Mills ordered him to
stop, and was in the act of charging bayonet,
when his foot struck a stone, the concussion
of which discharged the musket, the contents
entering the abdomen of Platt. The musket
was loaded with an eight-penny nail, which
entered the left episgastrium, pierced the
stomach, passed on through the body, and
Made its exit about an inch from the verte
bral column, inflicting a ghastly wound.—
Mills immediately surrendered himself, and
was placed under guard. On the following
morning, after an investigation, he was re
leased, all the facts elicited showing that the
discharge of the gun was accidental. Drs.
Worrall and Iran Valsah were sent for with
out delay to dress the wounds of - Mr. Platt,
and• were unremitting in their attentions to
him, exerting all that medical and surgical
skill could suggest, until Monday afternoon,
when ho expired.
Both Mr. Mills and Mr. Platt were es
teemed in their respective homes as quiet,
sober, respectable, inoffensive men—both
are married men, the latter having a wife
and three children—and both are members
of the Methodist church, the former, it is
said, a class leader. While the sympathy
of the whole community is extended to the
bereaved family of the deceased in their
deep affliction, the sore distress and bitter
agony experienced by Mr. Mills over the
unfortunate occurrence, enlist for him the
warmest feelings and commisseration.
Mr. Platt, upon his death bed, exonerated
Mr. Mills from all blame.
The remains of Mr. Platt were taken to
Milroy, in this county, where he formerly re
sided, for interment. His funeral took place
on Tuesday afternoon at 1 o'clock, from the
Red Lion Hotel.
The Logan Guards, Irwin Guards, Ring
gold Infantry, Jackson Artillery, Belleville
Fencibles, and Kishacoquillas Cavalry, ac
companied the remains, and he was buried
with the honors of war.
P. S.—Since writing the above, Mr. Mills
has been arrested by the civil authorities,
but, upon a hearing before Judge Wilson,
was permitted to enter into a recognizance
for his appearance at November Court.
DOMESTIC TaounLE.—Dr. Taney recently
eloped with the wife of a Baptist deacon, in
Knox county, Ohio. •She left'three children,
one an infant. He left five. The day before
they eloped, the Doctor took his wife and her
infant on a visit to his brother's, told her not
to come back until the next evening ; and that
he would take good care of the other children
in her absence.. When she came home he
had been gone over fourteen hours, and the
little ones were all in tears. The bereaved
husband followed the Doctor and his wife to
Huron co., where he found the woman pros
trated with illness. Without a word of up
braiding he stayed and nursed her back to
life, then he talked with,her and the Doctor,
and reasoned with them, and promised to
forgive all, and hide the facts from the world.
To his grief, however, he learned that his wife
loved the Doctor. He therefore expressed
his forgiveness to the recreant woman, and
certified in writing that he gave her up on
conditions that she would marry the object
of her choice as soon as possible, and he would
never molest them. Ho gave hex-5 . 150, wished
the blessings of God would rest upon her, and
then 14 r4tI4TIM to leis de§glato hearth.
Terrible Sufferings on the Plains.
News recently reached Fort Riley by two
soldiers who came in on express duty from
Fraifie log Creek, that two men who had
started for Pike's Peak were lying in a starv
ing condition at one of the distant, unoccupied
stations of the late express company of Jones
& Russell. The soldiers reported that if ade
quate means were sent to their relief it was
still possible that they might be found alive,
although they were in a delirious and feeble
condition. First Lieutenant Charles Griffin
and two others were immediately dispatched
with what limited means the Quarter-master
at the post could furnish. The philanthropic
mission reached its destination on the third
day. Both father and son were found even
in a worse condition than represented. They
had been at the station eight days before they
were relieved by the small quantity of tea,
bacon; and bread that the sergeant who first
discovered them could spare, who gave strict
injunctions to eat very . sparingly, else, death
would ensue—they being so weak that they
could scarcely stand up without holding on
to the door.
It appears that they had lived on grass
hoppers and mildewed corn, picked up from
among the excrement -left by animals which
had fed at the station. Providentially a few
young shoots of corn were found to be spring
ing up about the station, and a dried skull of
a buffalo had been thrown aside. They
caught from twenty to thirty grasshoppers
every morning while the dew was still on the
grass, until they became too faint to procure
this scanty supply of food, which they had to
husband, in order to make a stew of grass
hopper, buffalo hide, and young corn stalks,
in a small tin cup, to eat at night, to promote
sleep and prevent delirium.
Thus they sustained life until they obtained
the cupful of tea, (about a quarter of a. pound,)
two loaves of bread, and a pound or two of
bacon, left by the sergeant. When found by
Mr. Griffin they were too debilitated to be
immediately moved. He accordingly left pri
vate Machier to take care of them, and went
on another day's ride to repair his wagon,
which had broken at the camp at Prairie Dog
The father states that his name is Mr. W.
Frost, that •he is fifty years old, and that his
son, Thomas Frost, who was with him, is
seventeen years old, the eldest of six chil
dren—the five others being left behind at
Pottsville, Pennsylvania. He is a shoema
ker by trade. He started with $lOO, having
left $6O with his wife; he paid his fair to

RE PETER CART IVRIGIIT.—This gentleman
lectured in Harrisburg a short time ago. As
his life is an eventful one, and some of the
scenes quite interesting, we take occasion to
publiSh the following interesting incident.—
While there he created quite a sensation, and
was admired for his frankness and open
manners. The following will give a good
idea of his character : " Shortly after the
battle of New Orleans, a conference of Meth
odist preachers was being held in Nashville,
Tennessee. My old friend," says the author,
"Peter Cartwright, was appointed to preach
in one of the Churches on Sutiday,evening ;
as he rose to announce his text, - there was a
stir in the crowded congregation, and he
paused until the excitement should subside.
The pastor of the church took advantage of the
opportunity to pull.the skirt of the preacher's
coat, and admonish him in a whisper, broth
er Cartwright, you must be careful how you
preach to-night, Gen. Jackson has just come
in.' In a loud tone, Cartwright replied
What do you suppose I care for Gen. Jack
son ; if he don't repent of his sins, and be
lieve in the Lord Jesus Christ, he will die
and be damned like any other sinner,' and
then proceeded with his sermon. The next
morning early, as the preacher passed the
General's quarters, in his morning's stroll, a
servant ran after him with the message that
General Jackson wished to speak with him.
Turning, his hand was grasped by the hero
of New Orleans, who shook it heartily, say
ing, 'sir, you are a man after my own heart ;
if I had a regiment of men as brave as you,
and you for the chaplain, I'd agree to con
quer any country on earth.' They afterwards
became intimate friends, and many hours
were spent by the fearless pioneer preacher
under the hospitable roof of the General."

AGAINST THE WORLD:
EVANS & WATSON
have had the surest demonstration in the following ad.:
Meath that their manufacture of Salamander Safes has at
length fully warranted the representations which have`
been made of thein as rendering an undoubted security
against the terrific element:
Philadelphia, April 12th, 1850:
Messrs. Entice & Wino& Gentlemen—lt affords thrill."'
highest satisfaction to state to you, that owing to the iery
protective qualities Of two of the Salamander Safes Whiclt
we purchased of you some few months since, we saved a
large portion of our jewelry, and all our books, papers, &c.,
exposed to the calamitous like fn Raustead Place, on this
morning of the 11th instant; .
When we reflect that these Safes trere loCated in die:
fourth story of the building We oeculMed, and that they
fell subsequently into a heap of burning ruins, where the
vast concentration of heat caused the brass plates to melt,
we cannot but regard the preservation of their valuable
contents as most convincing proof of the great security
afforded by your Safes.
We shall take much pleasure in recommending them to
men of business as a sure reliance against fire.

PHYSICIAN .AND SURGEON:
OPPICII, Hill street, opposite Pr. Luden, offers itas profet
alone' services to the citizens of Huntingdon and, vicinity.
The history of "IIOOFLAND'S -GERMAN BIT
TERS," the most remarkable medicine of the day, and
the many cures that have been performed with it in cases
of LI VER COMPLAINT, DYSPEPSIA, NERVOUS DE
BILITY, and diseases arising from a disordered liver or
stomach, place it among the most astonishing discoveries
that have taken place in the medical world. The diseases
to which these Bitters are applicable are so universal, that
there are but few of our friends who may not test their
virtues in their own families or circle of acquaintances,
and prove to their own satisfaction that there is at least
one remedy among the many advertised medicines, deser
ving the public commendation. It is a fact that, in the
minds of many persons, a prejudice exists against what
are called Patent Medicines; but why should this prevent
you resorting to an article that has such an array of tes
timony to support it as Iloofland's German Bitters? Phy
sicians prescribe it, Why should you discard it? Judges,
usually considered men of talent, have and do use it in
their own families. Why should you reject it? Clergy
men, and those the most eminent, take it; why should
not you," Let not your prejudice usurp your reason, to
the everlasting injury of your health; if you aro sidr, and
require a medicine, try these Bitters.
These Bitters are prepared and sold by Dr. C. DI, Jack
son, No. 418 Arch street, Philadelphia, Pa., and by drug
gists and storekeepers in every town and village in the
United States, Canadas, West Indies, and South America,
at 75 cents per bottle. See that the signature of C. DI.
Jackson is on the wrapper of each bottle.
