: This . -hired miscreant—a tool for
men who are politically damned in
this. county for all time to come—made
charges against us in the Monitor of
the 10th .which shall have our atten
tion. The charges are as follows :
lst. That we oppoSed Samuel 11. Bell
bang he was in favor ,of compelling
the Railroad Company to pay back
its ill-gotten gains, and supported Adin
W. Benedict because ho was not:
2d. That we wrote to Cyrus L. Per
shing in 1858, demanding of him before
NV o could 'give him the support of our
paper, 8300—and that Pershing's
friends sent us the money—and that
we voted for and supported Steel Blair.
.3d That we entered into an arrange
ment with John C. Watson to defeat
George W. Speer.
These charges, iFir ye, would be suf
ficient to damn us in the estimation of
all honest men. But we know that they
are as false as the heart 'of the man
making them. We have*Offered Albert
Owen $l,OOO and all costs of investiga
tion, if he proves any one of the char
ges. He replies that he . accepts the
offer; and asks us to put up the money.
We decline to put up $l,OOO to,romain
idle until he proves the charges, as we
are satisfied the money would remain
put up to the end of time. Our prom.
iso to pay is good—the money can be
etillecled as. soon as be proves any one
of the charges. If true, Owen can hare
but littlediffieulty in securing theproof.

must have the letter, or we are wil

Our files can be examined to ascertain
whether we supported Blair or Per

ance was secured by deception. What
next? It was determined upon that
a new Democratic (?) paper must be
established in this county. What
next? ALBERT OWEN, Agent in
this county for the Day Book, was em
ployed as principal and responsible ed
itor for the new paper, with three as
sistants, John Dougherty. J. Simpson
Africa and Edwards McHugh. Who
ifflhere in this county that ever knew
that Albert Owen was a Democrat?—
Ho has been in this county some ten
or twelve years, and we were as inti
mate with him daring all this time as
perhaps any other man, yet WO wore
never able to discover to what party
he belonged. During the Know Noth
ing excitement, we are assured by a
gentleman who had an opportunity of
knowing, that Owen was a liberal sup
porter of Know Nothing documents.
Further than this, Owen's political
feelings never were exposed to the
public until ho became Agent for the
Day Book. What of J. Sinipson Afri
ca ? A young man who, might have
prospered in political life had he" play
ed the game fair" agid honest. Mr.
Africa has belonged to several parties
since he has had a vote—and ho is but
a young man yet. Last fall he was
elected a Delegate to the Union Con
vention,pledged as a friend to a Union
ticket. He opposed a portion of the tick

being a Douglas Democrat as long as
Douglas was in the line of promotion.
Whether he was an honest Douglas
man or not, we have no other means
of knowing further than the support
he is giving Frank Hughes, a rebel an
ti-Douglas man, from . the Charleston
Convention to the present time. We
are sorry that Mr. Africa has thrown
himself into the company he has—into
the hands of a few corrupt men who
have never been his friends, and who
will throw him overboard just as soon
as they arc done using him for a par
ticular purpose—the crushing out of the
John Dougherty, "agitating John,"
is also an Associate editor of the Moni
tor. Wo have lived in this county
over sixteen years, and never knew
that Mr. Dougherty was a party Demo
crat. He has always had the reputa
tion of being an agitating man on the
Abolition question, and all who heard
his speech in the Hughes' County Con
vention, will agree with us that he
made it first-class Abolition speech. If
Mr. Dougherty spoke his honest senti
ments in the Convention, we are justi•
fled in saying he is an Abolitionist.
Edward McHugh, of Broad Top,
also an Associate editor, is a man we
have a great respect for. Ho, is a con
sistent man—has always been a Demo
crat—but has got into very bad com
pany. Before the war is over, he will
find that ho was badly sold in permit
ting his name to be associated with the
Day Book patriots.
The men most interested in the suc
cess of the Monitor as a Democratic (!)
organ, aro a set of scabby politicians
claiming to be Democrats, who have
not voted a full Democratic ticket
since we have been - in the county.—
They have frequently sold out the best
nominees Upon Democratic tickets to
the highest bidders in the Whig,
Know-Nothing and Republican par
ties. They are the men who cry the'
loudest against' taxation to crush the
Rebellion, yet they were amongst the
first, and most persisting, in their' ef
forts to cheat the Government and the
soldiers. To what amount these honest
men cheated the Government, and the
people paying taxes, it is difficult to
say, but we are very certain they have
thousands of dollars in their pockets
for which they never gave value. In
the horse • speculation alone, in this
county, the Government lost over $5O
- The Monitor Democrats managed
that speeplation. Camp Crosman was
another swindle—the people to this
day aro without their money. It was
managed by' Jlfonitor Democrats.—
And because we dare expose the dis
honesty of such Democrats, and dare
act independent of their dictation, the
Globe must be crushed out to give
place to a press that can be 'controlled
by Gen. Wilson & Co. 'What say the
people? Will they suffer themselves
to be made the willing tools of corrupt
men'?'. We will "stand by an honest
people as long . as wo are sustained—
repudiating and exposing rascality in
any-and every party. We ask no &-
von from men who give countenance
to rnsP:ll;l:,' nny quarter. riThe
Union and the people can only be
saved by the people uniting against
the political speculators.
Clear the - Decks.
Albert Owen, editor of the rebel
/11 - eiutor, says that six weeks has been
too short a time for him and his crow
to overthrow the Globe, but thinks six
months will be sufficient. So the Globe
is to be no more after the Ist of April,
1863—it is to be crushed out, certain,
by that time—so Owen says. What
are we to do—we bad not intended
giving it up so—but if Owen says so,
wo must knock under, and agree that
we shall be crushed out by that time,
if the people deserts us. But wo have
had some little experience with the
people lately, and we believe we know
their wants—they want a county pa
per conducted independent of corrupt
partisan leaders, a paper that will not
hesitate to expose dishonest office-seek
ers in all parties—a paper independent
of party drill-masters. Such has been
and shall be the position of the Globe,
and having the evidence in our books
that the honest, right-thinking people
aro with us, endorse our course, we
are prepared with a clean dock to meet
the enemy sailing under false colors.
Six months. Rebel Monitor prepare
for a sad disappointment. You have
no small, rotten craft to deal with.
Remember we have seen some thirty
years' service—have had some expe
rience in routing enemies, you aro but
small potatoes beside them. Six
months! We shall see who conquers.
The contest will be a plain, one, the
people on one side, and their enemies
on the other. Honesty must rule
with the people to save our Govern
ment from disgrace, or dishonesty,
corruption, and rotten political leaders
will triumph. If the people whose in
terests we have heel defending and
shall continue to defend, will stand by
us, the .Monitor's horse speculating
crew will find " Dad" Lewis a hard
road to travel.
Our army of friends will front face,
look the enemy in the eye, and fire at
the first advance of the enemy. Se.
cret guerilla bands of our enemy will
receive our close attention.
The Government must be sustained,
the Union must be saved—corrupt
politicians must take a back seat, and
honest men must fill the offices.
We are prepared for a vigorous cam
paign—we ask for no quarters from
the enemies of our position. •
Six mouths, and the Globe is to be
annihilated. So says the Monitor.
DAVID CALDWEI.L.—To defeat Da
vid Caldwell for Sheriff, we published
extras after our last issue before the
election, charging said Caldwell with
having put the fees up to a higher fig
ure during his term of office as Pro
thonotary, than they were, under his
predecessors or successor. The illoni
for -issued an extra to destroy the
truth given in those we issued. •The
result is known. In this borough, two
years ago, David Caldwell had a ma
jority of 98 votes. At the late elec
tion, a majority of 78 votes was given
against him: In Barren, two years
ago, Caldwell had a majority of 119.
At the late election a majority of 29
was given against him. In Oneida, two
years ago, Caldwell had a majority of
21 votes. This fall ho received bat
one vote, and no man in the district will
own up to having voted that one vote.
If the voters believed our extras, they
are to be censured for giving Caldwell
as heavy a vote as be received, unless
they are willing to pay- one officer
more taxes than another because he
belongs to their party. We don't
pity a man who will complain of hea
vy taxes, if, with his eyes open, ho
votes for a man ho knows has taken
money out of his pocket ho was not
If there is a voter in the county who
thinks we have done Caldwell injust

in the Prothonotary's office. No won

and can explain.
le' The Globe of this week asserts
,when David Caldwell was Pro
thonotary, ho charged for the entry of
judgments $1.621, when the fee was
$1.224. This is a bold and malicious
falsehood got up on the eve of the elec
tion, supposing it would not meet with
I any contradiction.—Monitor, Oct. 10.

ROBERTS' ARTILLERY.—We invite the
particular attention of the young men
of Hunthigdon county to the, adver
tisement of the Roberts' Independent
Artillery in another column. The Bat
talion is filling up from . every 'county
in the State,' of the best material:—
We are assured by the best authority

We shall stand in the future just
where we have stood since the com

and untrammeled by either of the old
party organizations. We defy the ef
forts of the corrupt, politicians and
traitors to crush us out. If the people
of Huntingdon county will not sustain
a truly independent and loyal paper,
we have no desire to work for them..=.
Wo shall persevere, and see how willing
the people are to sustain us.

scoundrel and a coward.
Dave, keep cool. The Cambria
Court wouldn't believe you on your
oath. We don't believe you mean
what you say. You must have bad
Owen in your eye when you thought
of such rash words. Not Owen either,
perhaps, for it must be remembered
that ho was in the militia army, went
there to make good his word that he
would go if we did: We did go, and
sure enough, Owen followed because
ho couldn't help it, and behaved like a
man. A full company of brave young
men like you, Davo, would make al
most a half regiment of rebels run—af
ter you—if only for the fun of the
thing. Davo, always keep ready for
uso, a white handkerchief; you can
make use of it for various purposes—
it might be convenient to wipe your
nose with in front of our Southern
" brothers "if you should happen to
get in their neighborhood.

against' CaldWell. Last, year Ca

Nash for County Treasurer. This
year the Journal had not a word to

Did the Journal men expect CaldWell
to be elected ? Was the Journal aux

may be to the interests of the Journal
to unite•with the Monitor to crush us
out. Corbin was elected—the opposi

IMPORTANT FROM THE POTO
FROM BEYOND HALLTOWN, VA., VIA 1
Washington, Oet. 16, 1862.
A reconnoissance in force was made
this morning, soon after six o'clock,
under General Hancock, comprising
his entire division, together with Dan
a's brigade from Sedgwick, and under
command of Colonel Leo, ofthe Twen
tieth Massachusetts regiment, togctb
er with four regiments, two regiments
of cavalry and one battery of , flying
artillery. They loft Bolivar Heights,
and proceeded out to the Winchester
and Harper's Ferry turnpike towards
Charlestown, in the following order:
First, the Sixth New York Cavalry,
Colonel Devian, "and a battery of fly
ing artillery under command of Lieu
tenant-Colonel MeNickers, Ist battal
ion; next, the Fifty-Third Pennsylva
nia Volunteers, and First Minnesota,
of the Third Brigade, under Colonel
Brooks ; 'following these were Tomp

In this order they advanced until
just after crossing HaMown,' Whieh is
some four miles from Harper's Ferry.
A battery of therebels; comprising not
more than four pieces, opened at short
range upon our advance, their range
being so short as to NI to reach the
parties for whom it was intended.
The Fourth Regular Battery, under
Lieutenant Dickerson, promptly re
turned their fire. and with such effec
tiveness as to completely silence them
in something less than half an hour,
although failing to force them at once
to retire. The infantry regiments,
under the command of Generals Cald
well and 11.teagher and Colonel Brooke,
and detachments from other regts.,
under Colonel Leo, were then drawn
up in line of battle, in columns, by di
visions, on each side of the road, the
batteries, under Captains Petit and
Thompson, keeping along the turnpike
and passing to the front beyond the
lino of battle thus formed, and posting
themselves on an eminence just in
front of the infantry.
Soon after, the line of infantry post,
ed on the right of the road commenced
to send out their skirmishers, and, as
they advanced without molestation,
gradually the infantry advanced, and,
as they proceeded, so did the batter
ies, cavalry and ' infantry, until the
whole column was again in motion,
and carefully feeling their way for

Up to this period the cannonading
continued and wo left this scene for

The road at this point and beyond'
was quite rolling, a succession of short
hills, with a dense wood in front, hid
ing from our view Charlestown. In
this wood the enemy were posted.—
Our troops at this point, wore under
the immediate command of Gen. Han :
cock, of Williamsburg renown.
Shortly after our arrival at the top
of a hill within 2 miles of Charlestown,
the fire slacked, and our infantry de
ployed as skirmishers extending on .

body massed and proceeded en,'Prece

The Into forward movement to
Charlestown was merely a reconnois
sance in force, and was not made with
the design of precipitating a general
engagement. Having been completed
to the satisfaction of Gon. McClellan,
the troops have returned to their po
sition at Harper's Ferry.
To assume from this move that Mc-
Clellan desires to avoid a collision with
the rebels, at present, would be an
unfair inference. He is as well pre
pared for the shock as the enemy can
be, and persons who have arrived to
day, from the army, say that a battle
is hourly anticipated. The indications
now are that the rebels will be the
assailants. Stuart, it is said, has re
joined Lee's army. If so, ho has no
doubt communicated much valuable
information to the rebel commander
in -chief, acquired by the late raid.
CINCINNATI ; Oct. 19.—Yesterday
the rebel Morgan, after capturing our
pickets, dashed into Lexington at tho
