On Friday evening the citizens
again assembled in the Town Hall.—
After the meeting was called to order
Mr. Scott, chairman of the committee;
reported the following resolutions
which were unanimously adopted, and
the meeting adjourned :
Several of the States bound by the
Constitution of the United States, the
supreme law of the land acceded to and
adopted by themselves, having by the
action of separate State Conventions,
undertaken to absolve their people
from the allegiance due to the General
Government, and placed themselves in
an attitude of hostility to the Union ;
and other States of the Confederacy
being agitated by those oftheir citizens
who favor co-operation with the sece
ding States, thus rendering probable,
not onlya dissolution of the Union,
but the formation of two or many gov
ernments, which from the causes lead
ing to their existence, will act towards
each other with that malignant hate
which follows, when " brothers blood
is turned to gall"; and the citizens of
Huntingdon county strongly impressed
with a sense of their duty to the Con
btitution and the Union, with the im
portance ofprcserving and maintaining
both : desirous to avert the calamities
that must follow a permanent dismem
berment of the Union, do in county
meeting assembled declare :
let. That the undivided feeling of
the people of this county without re
spect to party, is an unyielding fideli
ty to the Constitution, the Union, and
all laws passed in conformity with the
one, or for the protection and perpetu
ity of the other.
21. That we declare, not our willing
ness to concede, but our readiness by all
lawful means to demand and enforce
for our brethren of the South, every
right and privilege granted and se
cured to them by the Constitution and
laws - of the United States, that while
we declare • the intention that their
rights and ours shall be thus equally
secured by the Government, we also
declare that their wron g s and ours
should be, and can be equaly redressed
by lawful resort to the same power.
Sd. It is our ardent desire that the
difficulties now existing shall be ad
justed without leading to unnatural
and disastrous strife : that they should
be made the subject of dispassionate
.discussion among brethren, with a
mutual desire to settle them justly to
all parties; not the occasion of bloody
contest which will embitter, but never
remove them ; and feeling thus, we re
quest our Senators and Representatives
in Congress and the State Legislature,
to give expression to this sentiment,
believed to be that not of the county
alone,but of the masses in this State,by
fulvocating and voting for any meas
ure calculated to bring about a peace-
Able and honorable, adjustment ofpend
ing difficulties; avoiding hero the pre
sentation of any particular project,
about which individuals would differ,
but declaring that in this crisis, mere
party feeling should be buried by both
constituents and representatives, and
every patriotic effort made that can
with honor he made, to preserve the
Union in peace, and to call back those
whom we still claim as citizens of a
common country, from rebellion to al
legiance ; and then, if the olive branch
of peace be rejected, and war proffered
in its stead, we will stand around the
flag of our whole country, as firmly as
our rocks and mountains stand around
4th. While every thing consistent
with honor should be done to avert the
calamity of civil war; and restore fra
ternal relations between the States,
duty to the ConAitution and the laws
which we have declared our readiness
to support and submit to, requires that
the.people of every State should also
support and submit to them. We can-
not therefore characterize the recent
attacks upon the property and flag of
the United States as anything else
than armed treason; and while, and
wherever it continues to manifest
itself,* cordially approve and will
support'She action of the President,
his Cabinet, and Lieutenant General
Scott in continuing to make every pre
paration necessary either to prevent
or to meet it.
sth. That Major Robert Anderson is
entitled to the thanks of his country
for his prudent and patriotic conduct
in occupyhyr Fort Sumpter.
6th. That we extend our cordial
greeting to all friends of the Union
and of peaceable settlement in the
Southern States; that we assure them
of the prevarence of the feeling in tho
North, that the rights and equality se
cured by the Constitution and the
laws shall be observed and enforced
by all the powers of the Government,
sustained in good faith by the people;
that we ask them to stand with us, and
pledge ourselves to stand by them in
every honorable effort to preserve that
Government under which both the
North and South have grown and

COURT.—Last week being first week
of Court, our town was unusually live
ly. The most important case before
Court was the Commonwealth against
Brice X. Blair, J. T. Hunter and Alex.
Scott, charged with conspiracy to ab
duct from her father's house, Miss
Mary Margaretta Scott, with the in
tent to marry her to Hunter. The
trial excited great interest, the Court
room being filled during the entire,
progress of the trial which closed late
on Saturday evening. The jury was
out about half an hour, and returned
with a verdict of not guilty as in man
ner and form indicted, but that the de
fendants pay the costs of prosecution.—
The other indictments against Mr.
B. were called up, but his counsel ask
ed for a continuance to April Term on
the ground of the absence of impor
tant witnesses. The Court granted
TILE " UNION . " DISSOLVED. - The
Union newspaper, for a year and a
half published in this place by IL Mil
ton Speer, Esq. : has ceased to exist.—
Mr. Speer will hereafter give his whole
attention to the law, a calling he wishes
to excel in, and we hope he may not
be disappointed. Mr. Speer in his val
edictory says For nearly eighteen
months, I have occupied the editorial
chair and have endeavored to discharge
the duties devolving upon me faithful
ly and fearlesssly. The errors which
I have committed were in act, not in

life—my thirst for its fame is satisfied,
and my visions of its pleasures gone
forever." The " Journal & American,"

THE CONFLICT OF SMELLS -A party of
negroes in Ithaca, N. Y., recently de
cided to have a ball. It took place
about six miles out of the city, and
they engaged a splendid six horse
team to take them to the spot. The
owner of the team, a well known
white livery-stable keeper of Ithaca,
not wishing to entrust his team to the
care of any ono else, resolved to drive
it himself: After the ball was opened,
one of the darkey managers politely
invited the gentleman to go in as a
spectator if he pleased, and he did so.
After awhile, the negroes becoming
aroused by the dance, the odor of the
room became slightly objectionable.—
As the ball progressed, the aroma be
came stronger until he concluded to
leave. Just at that moment ho saw a
number of darkeys in consultation, and
one of them approached him with
much politeness, and informed him
that the ladies requested that he should
leave the room. The darkey stated
that he regretted to make the re
quest, but that the ladies insisted; be
cause they said—he smelt too much of
the stable !

Gen. Wool on the Crisis
The following letter from this dis
tinguished soldier and patriot, to his
old friend, Gen. Cass, will he read with
interest at this time :
TROY, Dec. 0,1800.
MY DEAR GENERAL :—Old associa
tions and former friendship induce me
to venture to address to you a few
words on the State of the country.—
My letter is headed pi . tlate, because I
am not authorized to address you offi
I Lave read with pleasure the Presi
dent's Message. South Carolina says
she intends to leave the Union. Her
representatives in Congress say she
has already left, the Union. It would
seem that she is neither to be concili
ated or comforted. I command the
Eastern Department, which includes
South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Ala
bama and Mississippi. You know me
well. I have ever been a firm, deci
ded, faithful and devoted friend of my
country. If I can aid the President
to preserve the Union, I hope he will
command my services. It will never
do fbr him or you to leave Washing
ton without every star in this Union
is in its place. Therefore no time
should be lost in adopting measures
to defeat those who are conspiring
against the Union. Hesitance or de
lay may be no less fatal to the Union
than to the President, or your own
high standing as a statesman.
It seems to me that troops should
be sent to Charleston to man the fbrts
in that harbor. You have eight com
panies at Fort Monroe, Va. I flaree or
four of these companies should be sent
without a moment's delay to Fort
Moultrie. It will save the Union,
and the President much trouble. It
is said that to send at this time troops
to that harbor would produce great
excitement among the people. That
is nonsense, when the people are as
much excited as they can be, and the
leaders arc determined to execute their
meditated purpose of separating the
State from the Union. So long as you
command the entrance to the city of
Charleston, South Carolina cannot sep
arate herself from the Union. Do not
leave the forts in ,the harbor in a con
dition to induce an attempt to take
possession of them. It might easily
be done at this time. If South Caro
lina should take them it might, as she
anticipates : induce other States to join
' Permit me to entreat you to urge
the President to send at once three or
four companies of artillery to Fort
Moultrie. The Union can be preseryed
but it requires firm, deckled, prompt
and energetic measures on the part of
the President. Ile has only to exert
the power conferred on him by the
Constitution and Laws of Congress,
mid all will be safe, and he will pre
vent a civil war, which never fails to
call forth all the baser passions of the
human heart. If a separation should
take place, you may rest asstwed blood
would flow in torrents, followed by
pestilence, famine and desolation, and
Senator Seward's irrepressible con
flict will be brought to a conclusion
much sooner than he could possibly
have anticipated. Let me conjure you
to save the Union, and thereby avoid

A separation of the States will
bring with it the desolation of the Cot

Words of Soberness from the Soutb
Iron. Sohn P. King, of Augustus,
Georgia, one of the ablest men in that
State, has published a series of articles
in the Georgia Constitutionalist, against
Secession. In one of these articles ; ho
This panic has already cost our
planters millions in the depreciation of
their property; and, if it continues I
long, must prove disastrous to all
classes, and to the debtor class mustbe
attended with absolute ruin. I wish
to show that no immediate danger is
to us threatened; that so far as any
material interest is concerned, the
danger is remote and contingent. The
eqUality in the Territories—the main
question involved—is practically a
mere abstraction, and, by many of our
greatest southern statesmen, believed
to be of little importance to the South.
This claim as a constitutional right,-is
of a recent origin. It was not insisted
on even in the angry discussions on
the Missouri Compromise. Its justice,
however, was none the less clear, and
the claim should not be surrendered.
Ourgrievance, from the election of
Lincoln, is not one of tangible and im
mediate wrong to our interests. It is
only an evidence on which we ground
an apprehension of future wrong. It is
evidence but not conclusive evidence.
The election of Lincoln is more an in
sult than an injury. It does not touch
a single interest that would not have
been equally exposed under any Pres
ident. lam not indifferent, however,
to the outrages of those States who
have violated the social compact by
hostile legislation. But I would not
adopt a Japanese plan of redress, and
rip open my own bowels, but punish
the guilty parties.
This we can do better in the Union
than out of it. We can make them
continue to contribute to our national
strength and resources, whilst wo can
make them pay for their own perfidy
and folly. Onr complaint is against
the perfidy of States, not against the
government of the Union. It was the
the perfidy of States that called the
Union into existence. The Union ce
mented these faithlcss, jealous, section
al bodies together, and from objects
of contempt when separated, they rap
idly grow into one of the most power
ful and prosperous nations on the
earth. Let us keep cool. "The best
courage is tempered with caution."—
The inflammatory appeals of some of
our orators have excited the people to
madness, and we see and feel the ef
fects upon our material interests, of
the panic created, in view of the
"reign of terror, anarchy and blood,"
which they tell is upon 'lts. I am
amazed at sonic of our most worthy
citizens, who - have been goading the
masses to this work of ruin. Look at
the address of Mr. Cobb, a citizen of
high standing —a man of talents, a
prominent lawyer, and Chistian ! Con
jectures without reason, assertions
without proof; conclusions without
premises ! No revolutionary harangue
of .Desmoulins, Danton or Cauthon
was ever better calculated to stir up
an excited population to anarchy and
blood! " A revolt within seven miles
of Milledgeville ?" Why should there
not be one in the neighborhood of eve
ry secession speech ? " Free by virtue
of Lincolns election !" Who told them
so, except our own imprudent disclaim
ers? Why not let them know the
truth, instead of quoting time ravings
of such fimatics as Garrison as the
sentiments of Lincoln and the whole

This wink contains 004 pages. and npx arils of 500 Hubs
and Examples, entirely and thoroughly practical, such as
arise every day in the common pursuits of Business. It
has already passed tin °ugh a number of edit ions In rapid
succession, and is pronounced by all classes of business
men to be the handiest book of reference, pea:tilling to
calculations, that has ever been published,
Erery• example in the book Is a orked out In full and
stated In a plain manner, so that when it parallel case ari
ses, those referring to the won it iniii find no difficulty In
solving it; in a word, the general arrangement of the
CALCULATOR is simple, that any onest Ito knows how to
add, subtract, multiply and divide, can easily solve any on
dinary example that arises in business, or arrive at the
trim result of any estimate required.
The chief aim of the author has been to eschew theory
and philosophy in figures, aiming onl) at facts and simpli
city, believing that business men care little about spen
ding tine in discussing the philosophy of I Wee, or the
silence of figures, deeming it sufficient for their pm pose
to be able at in moment, by ram ence. to arrive at the true
result. The CALCULATOR stiffens in this respect front all
other Aritlimeties of the day and kindred works—it is a
key to practical business calculations—it Is, in the bands
of the business man, what the key to mathematical works
to the hands of the teacher in the school room—it facili
tates time and insures correctness.
