J. ROBLEY DUXGLISON j
A Congressman on the Make.
Daniel J. Morrell the individual who
misrepresents this district in Congress by
virtue of money lavishingly expended in
colonizing and corrupting Voters, as well
as sundry other Yankee tricks which we
can and will at the proper time expose,
cannot, it seems, rise above the propensi
ty of his race, to turn an honest (?) pen
ny, when the opportunity occurs. He
having failed to secure the appointment
of a Radical postmaster at Huntingdon,
endeavored to sell his influence with the
Radical Senate to the Democratic aspi
rant willing to pay the highest price for
that position, and on his return from
Washington, last Thursday, left a letter
for one of his friends in town, which read
a 4 follows:
Ox TP.AIX, April 21st, ISC7.
Make the best arrangement von can with Miller.
Wallace or Africa, any one you name will be con
DANIEL J. MORRELL.
The aforesaid friend fixed the price of
a confirmation at SSOO and set to work
diligently to do his master's bidding and
earn his reward, but the thing wouldn't
work. Democrats didn't bite, and Con
gressman Morrell's attempt at blackmail
ing entirely failed.
Our readers will begratified to learn that
G. Ashman Miller, who flatly refused to
come down with the coveted $-500 was
confirmed as postmaster on the very day
the above note was written, notwithstand
ing his refusal to "give the corner of a
three cent postage stamp" for the said
Hon. D. J. M.'s influence.
It is certainly very humiliating to be
represented in Congress by a man who is
always on the make; so much so, that a
little post office cannot pass through his
mill without paying toll. But when we
inform our readers that the Hon. Daniel
is held in leading strings by one Billy
Shaw—who is well, if not favorably
known in this county—his character wiil
be at once understood and fully appreci
We copy the above tirade of copperhead
malice and lying from the Huntingdon
Monitor, a joint stock concern established
during the war to decry the administra
tion of Abraham Lincoln and so far as it
dared uphold and justify the rebellion of
Jef Davis and his cutthroat associates—a
character it sustained throughout that
terrible period of our history, us every
Union soldier from this region well !
The article bears unmistakcable evidence
on its face that the note is a FORGERY, the
probable production of a disappointed of- j
fice-hunter who having found Mr. Mor- !
rell a stumbling block in his expectations |
of political preferment, now vents his !
spleen against him by an impotent at- j
tempt at defamation. In the iirst place I
we have good reasons for knowing that at 1
the very time the Monitor alleges this
note was written and left of!" at Hunting
don, Mr. Morrell was oil his return home
from Washington, previous to leaving
which, lie had tacitly acquiesced in the
confirmation of G. Ashman Miller as P.
M. at Huntingdon, because Mr. Rose was
at the same time confirmed as Collector of
this congressional district. This fact is
sufilcient to show he could have written
110 such note, and stamps the author of
the above as an unblushiug falsifier of
everything pertaining to truth.
There is also another phase of this mat
ter which is worthy of attention. Sup
pose a note of this kind had been written by
Mr. Morrell or any other person, addressed
to a private individual, itmusteither have
been STOI.EN or otherwise dishonestly or
dishonorably obtained —for we think all
will admit that no honest person would
for a moment use or retain a private note,
even if found, and pervert it to defama
tion and scurrility.
To talk of Mr. Morrell being in the
leading strings of any person, may do
among the admirers of the "stern states
man" who is painting copperhead democ
racy in Fortress Monroe, yet comes with
a bad grace from those who endeavored to
use Mr. Morrell and found him to be metal
that could not be fashioned to suit the
band of aspirants for Assessor and Collec
tor in and about Huntingdon.
1 he truth is the only note Mr. Morrell
wrote was si in ply stating the fact that Mr.
Miller had been appointed, and if Mr.
Cormnau will make the inquiry he will
find tliis to have been the case, and also
that he has been made the victim of a
shameful forgery and published an un
provoked assault on Mr. Morrell.
fOgf The distribution of Gifts advertis
ed in another column, for the benefit of
the Soldiers' Home, is thus noticed in the
Philadelphia Press. It is no swindle :
A National Home for Invalid Soldo rs.
—Measures are now in hand which are
calculated, after the lapse of a few months,
to establish, on a grand scale, the desider
atum —a National Home for Invalid Sol
diers. The design is an admirable one,
and is as follows: It is well known that
ail efforts to obtain voluntary subscrip
tions sufficient to erect a Soldiers' Home
have been without avail. In furtherance
of the object, however, the Legislature
of Pennsylvania have passed an act dated
March 0, 18(57; creating a corporation of
which Major General George G. Meade
is president, and General Horatio G.
Sickles is treasurer, with an efficient board
of supervisors, who have the power to
distribute to the holders of certificates a
la ge number of immensely valuablegifts,
consisting of diamonds, pearls, emeralds,
rubies, &e., purchased from citizens of the
Southern States during the rebellion, and
which articles will soon be exhibited in
t lis city. By this scheme it is confident
ly anticipated a large fund will be created
towards the erection of the Home. A
great feature of the affair consists in the
fact that every purchaser of the certificates
becomes a contributor to this National
Home fund, and at the same time has a
direct interest in the distribution of the
rare gems mentioned above. The details
of the entire scheme will be conducted in
a perfectly fair and honorable manner.
The site "for the Home has already been
purchased, and consists of thirty acres of
1 mil, used by General Meade during the
b ittle of Gettysburg as liis headquarters.
The plan has been approved by ex-Gov
ernor Curtin, Major General Meade, Gov
ernor Geary, and a large number of prom
inent military iieroes.

BSBuThe newspapers south, which for
merly hardly noticed a republican speech
except to misrepresent it, have latterly
been compelled to adopt the northern
style and report whatever is transpiring.
The consequence is that Wilson, Gibbons,
and others who are now addressing vast
audiences where republican speeches were
never heard before, are reported in all the
Richmond papers, and Southern men
thus see and read what is said for as well
as against Congress and its measures.
This course must be galling to the rebel
editors, but as they would soon have been
thrown into obscurity by more enterpris
ing publishers, self-interest it seems can
influence the "chivalry" as well as the
small-listed farmers and greasy mechanics
of the North, as a South Carolina demo
cratic negro breeder used to call them.
For the Gazette.
MANHATTAN, April 29th, 18<>7.
No doubt many of the "oldest inhabi
tants" of Mifflin county are quite familiar
with the "shakes" arising from ague,
but as few or none of them have felt those
produced by an earthquake, which neither
quinine norcoiogogue will prevent, a brief
description of our experience throughout
Kansas might not prove uninteresting to
our friends who read the Gazette.
Wednesday, April 24th, being a beauti
ful day, our town was thronged by people
from the county and emigrants on their
way to the far west. Business was very
lively and all seemed engaged either in
buying or selling. But this"bustling ac
tivity was brought abruptly to a halt,
about three o'clock, by a low rumbling
noise. Soon the buildings began to rock
and the terrified inhabitants rushed into
the streets. The waters of Big Blue and
Kansas rivers, which unite at this place,
tossed from one side of their channels to
the other, while old Mother Earth groaned
and shook beneath. A scene of confu
sion and amazement was now observed in
the streets among the people who had
gathered there. Men without hats or
coats and ladies without the usual display
of elegance of dress could be seen —some
running they knew not where, while
others stood in breathless silence, many
in all probability thinking that the "last
days" of the prophetic I)r. Cmnraing
was upon us, and many, we have reason
to believe, while the God of Nature thus
displayed to a limited extent his mighty
power, made vows to live more uprightly,
only to be broken when apparent danger
was past. The duration of the occurrence
lias been variously estimated—each indi
vidual probably calculating the time in
proportion to the amount of nervous ex
citement experienced—hut we think by a
fair estimate it did not much exceed half
a minute. It caused no material damage
beyond the scare which it produced. A
few chimneys and stone buildings and
walls ii is said were somewhat injured.
The Agricultural College, a stone build
ing, was rather severely tried, and it is
thought would not have stood much more.
Clocks were stopped, some thrown from
the shelves, glass and crockery ware
broken, plastering knocked from ceilings,
&c., &e. The editor of the Manhattan
Independent tells us that he was just
racking his brain for a local, and when
the earthquake came thundering by, was
successful to a degree which he did not
desire to see repeated, and we presume
this is the sentiment of all. To the ad
mirers of nature there is music in ripple
of the rill and the foaming of the cataract,
pleasant voices in the gentle breezes and
something pleasing in all the ordinary
operations of nature, but in this peculiar
phenomenon there is a voice by no means
musical and an exhibition of dormant
physical forces more pleasing when past
than present. j. w. \v.
