Huntingdon, Wednesday, Jan. 16, 1861
• The Union and the Constitution, Now
and Forever, One and Inseparable."
V - e, the undersigned citizens of
Huntingdon county. having watched
with a deep and abiding interest the
progress of disunion in our country for
some time past, now feel satisfied that
unless the potential voice of the Union
loving people be not raised in behalf of
our blood-bought institutions—under
which we have attained, among the
nations of the earth, our present envi
able position—we shall ere long behold
the abhorrent spectacle of civil war;
"of States dissevered, discordant, be
ligerent—in which brother shall war
against brother." Believing, from the
history of passing events, that to this
end we are fast hastening, we recom
mend that a general Mass Meeting of
the citizens of Huntingdon county be
held in the Court House, in the bor
ough of Huntingdon, on Thursday
evening, Jan. Mb, to attest their fidel
ity to the Union and the Constitution,
and to give an expression of opinion
as- to some means of adjusting the
present difficulties existin g between
the Northern and Southern States.

OF ITS CONTENTS.—About S o'clock on
the morning of the 26th ult., the barn
of Benjamin Shope, at Three Springs.
in Clay township, was discovered to
be on fire, and in half an hour was
consumed, together with most of its
contents, consisting' of his entire crop,
pro ender for stock, a valuable set of
carpenter's tools, barn tools, and sonic
filming utensils. Mr. Shope had but
lately finished threshing his crop, and
had the grain gathered in the barn.—
By strenuous effort, a portion of the
wheat and oats was saved by openings
made through the floor underneath the
garners, through which it descended
into the basement; it was then carri
ed away, and otherwise prevented
from being entirely consumed, though
saved in a damaged condition. For
from the stable without injury, with
the exception of several hogs and one
or two calves, which perished in the
flames. The horse-gears were also
saved. It was a large bank barn, al
most new—one of the best in Clay
township. The fire originated through
the mischief of two little boys—one a
son of 31r. Shope, about eight years of
age, and the other a neighboring boy
—who, with matches, set fire to a
straw-stack adjoining the barn, which
in an instant communicated to the
barn. Estimated loss, $2,000. No
insurance. The loss bears heavily on
Mr. Shope.—Shirleysburg Herald.

31R. EDITOR :—During the time which
has elapsed since the writing of my
last, many changes have taken place.
Many of our companions have entered
the matrimonial noose; others are
making preparations, and others are
halting between the opinions " to" and
"to not." Many have taken their de
parture from this world of sorrow, un
til the close of time; others have been
smitten with the hand of affliction,
while we aro still alive and permitted
to agitate the slavery question, and to
behold the scene of advancing war and
blood-shed which o'erhangs our glori
ous country—the home of our birth—
the land for which our fore fathers laid
down the lives.
The proceedings of the South ap
pear to be the chief topic of conversa
tion among a number of our citizens,
and our merchants' establishments
serve as the chief resort for those who
delight in arguments.
Pleasure parties frequently occur
among the pleasant and benevolent
farmers' sons and daughters of this
"neck o' woods," in which we occa
sionally participate. On the evening
of the 4th, in company with several of
the ladies and gents of our village, we
set out in full feathers to enjoy one of
those evening entertainments given by
the Miss and Messrs. Burkets at Royal
Point. As the merry bells did jingle
and we did glide o'er the snow-bound
highway we chatted considerable,
viewed the beautiful landscape o'er
and pencilled accordingly. After a
pleasant drive of—miles more or less,
We reached the 7*s where others joined
our number. Onward we sped our
way. But hold the steed. What's

them. Soon the mystery is solved.—
All is right and again we go. The
Point is at hand. The meeting salute
is given, and soon we find ourselves
surrounding the cheerful fire, enjoying
numerous jokes and anecdotes. After
spending the greater part of the eve
ning pleasantly, glad tidings were
borne to us, that we might " eat, drink
and be merry." We did so Mr. Editor,
and were inclined to think that the
lady of the establishment could pre
pare a supper equal to any among the
numerous. Continuing with different
exercises until wearied, we extended
our right pis tipped our beavers and
bade farewell. Yllamt.
BLOODY RUN, Jan. 8. 18G1
DEAR GLOBE :—Since my last I have
attended a Teachers Institute in the
town of Bedford, under the name of
the "Bedford County Teachers Asso
ciation." The interest manifested by
not only the members but also those
that were merely spectators, was truly
cheering to the friends of education.—
The Teachers in attendance numbered
between eighty and ninety active,
worlcinglnstructors. There were three
sessions held each day, of three hours
each. The forenoon and afternoon ex
ercises were conducted in the form of
a school, while the evening session
was more of a miscellaneous nature,
such as lectures, essays, debates. &c.—
There were exercises each day in the
different branches conducted by some
of the ablest teachers of the county.—
The interest of the Institute was great
ly facilitated by the hospitable citizens
of Bedford in keeping the members
free of charge. STANLEY.
WHAT is Cor.acioN ?—The Southern
people regard the attempt to send
more troops into Charleston harbor, as
coercion. The followin: , , front the
Wilmington (N. C.) Herald, will give
our readers an idea of the feeling in
the South :
" The Union men of the South will
never submit to any kind of coercion,
and the first attempt to exercise it
will drive even the most conservative
to immediate resistance. And when
we say coercion, we do not confine
ourselves to direct armed invasion by
any means—that the women and chil
dren would resist. We mean that af
ter a State has declared herself inde
pendent, no investment of the Forts
and Arsenals by Federal troops for the
purpose of executing the Federal laws,
would be submitted to. If the object
of the Northern States is to save the
- union, they must know that force is
the last means to be used to attain that
end. Force would be the parent of
immediate and everlasting separation.
If the salvation of the Union is not
their purpose, or if they are reckless
, of the means to be used to accomplish
it, then they are right, and—we are
ready. The time is near at hand, if it
has not already passed, when not even
a compromise can save it. Let them
make a proper use of it,if they appreci
ate the value of time, and have not de
termined to continue their course un
To Me Senate and Hangs of Representatives
At the opening of your present ses
sion, I called your attention to the
dangers which threatened the exist
ence of the Union. I expressed my
opinion freely concerning the original
causes of these dangers, and recom
mended such measures as I believed
would have the effect of tranquilizing
the country and saving it from the
peril in which it bad been needlessly
and most unfortunately involved.—
Those opinions and recommendations
Ido not propose now to repeat. My
own convictions upon the whole sub
ject remain unchanged. The fact that
a great calamity was impending over
the nation was even at that time ac
knowledged by every intelligent citi
zen. It had already made itself felt
throughout the length and breadth of
the land. The necessary consequences
of the alarm thus produced were most
deplorable. The imports fell off with
a rapidity never known before, except
in time of war, in the history of our
foreign commerce.
The Treasury was unexpectedly left
without the means which it had rea
sonably- counted upon to meet its pub
lic engagements, trade was paralyzed,
manufitetures were stopped, the best
public securities suddenly sunk in the
market, every species of property- de
preciated more or less, and thousands
of poor men who depended on their
daily labor for their daily bread were
turned out of employment. I deeply
regret that I am not able to give you
any information upon the state of the
Union which is more satisfitetory than
what 1 was then obliged to communi
cate. On the contrary, matters are
still worse at the pres;:at time than
they then were. When Congress met,
a strong hope pervaded the whole pub
lic mind that some amicable adjust
ment of the subject would be speedily
made by the representatives of the
States and of the people. which mig?lit
restore peace between the conflicting
sections of the country. That hope
has been diminished by every hour of
delay, and as the prospect of a blood
less settlement fades away the public
distress becomes more and more ag
As an evidence of this, it is only ne
cessary to say that the treasury notes
authorized by the act of 17th Decem
ber last were advertised according to
law, and that no responsible bidder of
fered to take any considerable sum
at par at a lower rate of interest than
twelve per cent. From these facts it
appears that, in a Government organ
ized like ours. domestic strife. or even
a well grounded, fear of civil hostili
ties, is more destructive to our public
and private interests than the most
formidable foreign war.
In my annual message I expressed
the conviction which I have long de
liberately held, and which recent re
flection has only tended to deepen and
confirm, that no State has the right,
by its own act, to secede from - the
Union, or throw oft' its Federal obliga
tions at pleasure. I also declared my
opinion to be that, even if that right
existed, and should be exercised by
any State of the Confederacy, the Ex-
Arm five Dennri mont a it ig norn-
Mont had no authority, under theyon
stitution to recognize its validity by
acknowledging the independence of
such State. This left me no alterna
tive, as the chief executive officer un
der the Constitution of the United
States, but to collect the public revenue
and protect the public property, so for
as this might be practicable under the
existing laws. This is still my pur
pose. My province is to execute, not
to make the laws. It belongs to Con
gress exclusively to repeal, modify, or
enlarge their provisions to meet exi
gencies as they occur. I possess no
dispensing power. I certainly had no I
right to make an aggiessive war upon 'I
any State; and I am perfectly satisfi
ed that the Constitution has wisely
withheld that power even from Con
gress. But the right and the duty to
use the military force defensively
against those who resist the Federal
officers in the execution of their legal
functions, and against those who as
sail the property of the Federal Gov
ernment is clear and undeniable. But
the dangerous and hostile attitude or
States towards each other has already
far transcended and cast into the shade
the ordinary Executive duties already
provided for by law, and has assumed
such vast and alarming proportions
as to place the subject entirely above
and beyond the Executive control.—
The fact cannot be disguised that we
are in the midst of a great revolution.
In all its various bearings, therefore, I
commend the question to Congress as
the only human tribunal under Provi
dence possessing the power to meet
the existing emergency. To them ex
clusively belongs the power to declare
war, or authorize the employment of
the military force in all cases Contem
plated by the Constitution; and they
alone possess the power to remove the
grievances which might lead to war,
and to secure peace and union to this
distracted country. On them, and on
them alone, rests the responsibility.
The Union is a sacred trust, left by
our revolutionary fhthers to their de
scendants, and never did any other
people inherit so rich a legacy. It
has rendered us prosperous in peace
and triumphant in war. The national
flag has floated with glory over every
sea. Under its shadow American citi
zens have found protection and respect
in all lands beneath the sun. It we
descend to considerations of purely
material interest, when, in the history
of all time, has a Confederacy been
bound together with such strong ties
of mutual interest? Each portion of
it is dependent on all, and all upon
each portion for prosperity and do
mestic security; a free trade through-
out the whole supplies the wants of
one portion from the productions of
another, and scatters wealth every
where. The great planting and farm
ing States require, and commercial
navigation States send their produc
tions to domestic and foreign markets,
and furnish a naval power, to render
their transportation secure against all
hostile attacks. Should the Union
perish in the midst of the present ex
citement, we have already hail a fore
taste of the universal suinring which
would result from its destruction.—
The calamity would be severe in every
portion of the Union, and would be
quite as great, to say the least, in the
Southern as hi the Northern States.
The greatest aggravation of the evil,
And that which would place us in a
most unfavorable light, both before
the world and posterity, is, as I am
firmly convinced, that the secession
movement has been chiefly based upon
a, misapprehension at the South, of the
sentiments of the majority in several
of the Northern,States. Let the ques
tion be transferred from political as
semblies to the ballot-box, and the
people themselves would speedily re
dress the serious grievances which the
South have suffered.
But, in Heaven's name, let the trial
be made before we plunge into an
armed conflict upon the mere assump
tion that there is no other alternative.
Time is a great conservative power.—
Let us pause at this momentous point,
and afford the people of both North
and South, an opportunity for reflec
tion. Would that South Carolina had
been convinced of this truth before her
precipitate action. I therefbre appeal,
through you, to the people of the
country to declare in their might that
SERVED " by all constitutional means.
I most earnestly recommend that
you devote yourselves exclusively to
the question how this can be accom
plished in peace. All other questions,
when compared with this, sink into
insignificance. The present is no time
for palliation. Action, prompt action,
is required. A delay in Congress to
prescribe and recommend a distinct
and practical proposition tin. concilia
tion may drive us to a point from
which it will be almost impossible to
recede. A common ground on which
conciliation and harmony may be pro
duced is surely not unattainable.
The proposition to compromise by
letting the _North have exclusive con
trol of the territory above a certain
line, and giving Southern institutions
protection below that line, ought to
receive universal approbation. In it
self, indeed, it may not be entirely sat
isfhetmy ; but when the alternative is
between a reasonable concession on
Loth sides and the destruction of the
Union, it is an imputation on the pa
triotism of Congress to assert that its
members will hesitate for a moment.
Even now the danger is upon us.—
In several States which have not se
ceded, the forts, arsenals, and maga
zines of the United States have been
seized. This is, by flir, the most seri
ous step which has been taken since
the commencement of the troubles.—
This public property has long been left
without garrisons and troops for its
protection, because no person doubted
its security under the flag of the coun
try in all the States of the Union.—
Besides, our small army has scarcely
been sufficient to guard our remote
frontiers against Indian incursions.
The seizure of this property, from
all appearances, has been purely ag
gressive, and not in resistance to any
attempt to coerce a State or States to
remain in the Union. At the begin
ning of these unhappy troubles, I de
termined that no act of mine should ' 1
increase the excitement in either sec
tion of the country. If the political
conflict were to end in civil war, it
was my determined purpose not to
commence it, 1101' even to Amish an
excuse for it by any act of this Gov
ernment. My opinion ttemains un
chane•ed that justice. au well as a
a peaceful solution of the questions at
issue between the North and South.—
Entertaining this conviction, I refrain
ed even front sending reinforcements
to Major Anderson, who' commanded
the forts in Charleston harbor, until
an absolute necessity for doing so,
should make itself apparent, lest it
might unjustly be regarded as a menace
of military coercion, and thus furnish,
if not a provocation, at least It pretext
for an outbreak on the part of South
Carolina. No necessity for these re
inforcements seemed to exist. I was
assured, by distinguished and upright
gentlemen from South Carolina, that
no attack on Major Anderson was in
tended, but that, on the contrary, it
was the desire of the State authorities,
as much as it was my own, to avoid
the fatal consequences which must in
' evitably follow a military collision.—
And here I deem it proper to submit,
for your information, copies of a com
munication dated the 28th of Decem
ber, 1860, addressed to me by R. W.
Barnwell, J. 11. Adams, and James L.
Orr, Commissioners from South Caro
lina, with accompanying documents,
and copies of my answer thereto, dated
the 31st of December.
In further explanation of Major An
derson's removal from Fort Moultrie
to Fort Sumpter, it is proper to state
that after my answer to the South
Carolina Commisioners, the War De
partment received a letter from that
gallant officer, dated on the 27th De
cember, 1860. (the day after this move
ment), from which the fbllowing is an
extract :
I will add, as my opinion, that
many things convinced me that the
authorities of the Si ate designed to
proceed to a hostile act." [Evidently
referring to the orders dated December
11, of the late Secretary of War.]—
" Under this impression, I could not
hesitate that it was my solemn duty
to move my command from a fort
which we could not probably have held
longer than forty-eight or sixty hours,
to this one, where my powerof resist
ance is increased in a very great degree."
It will he recollected that the con
eluding part of these orders were in
the following terms :
" The smallness of your force will
not permit you, perhaps, to occupy
more than one of the three forts; but
all attack on, or an attempt to take
possession of either ono of them, will
be regarded as an act of hostility, and
you may then put your command into
either of them which you may deem
most proper, to increase its power of
resistance. You are also authorized
to take similar defensive steps when
ever you have tangible evidence of a
design to proceed to a hostile act."
IL is said that serious apprehensions
are, to some extent, entertained that
the peace of this district may be dis
turbed before March next. In any
event, it will be my duty to prevent it,
and this duty shall be performed.
In conclusion, it may be permitted
to me to remark that I have often
warned my countrymen of the dangers
which now surround us. This may
be the last time I shall refer to the sub
ject officially. I feel that my duty has
been faithfully, though imperlbctly per
formed, and, whatever the result may
be, I shall carry to my grave the con
sciousness that I, at least meant well
for my country.
AVAsurseToN CITY, Jan. P.. 18(31:
idence (R. I.) Journal says :
We find in a Charleston paper the
following striking paragraph, which
proves conclusively that the prophet
Joel was in favor of sesession :
The 20th verse of the second chapter
of the Book of Joel reads as follows :
" But I will remove far off from you
the Northern army, and will drive him
into a land barren and desolate, with
his face toward the East Sea, and his
hinder part toward the - utmost sea.
It may be a comfort to those who
are alarmed by this, to be assured that
Jeremiah is on our side. For, in the
13th chapter and 79th verse, he says:
" The cities of the South shall be stmt
up, and none shall open them." Jer
emiah being one of the greater proph
ets, and Joel only one of the minor
prophets, the advantage is clearly with
