Curtin and the Tonnage Tax.
When Andrew G. Curtin canvassed this
Stato for Governor, in 18G0, he announced
from every stump that ho was opposed to
tho repeal of "so just a tax as that impos
ed upon tho tonnage of tho Pennsylvania
Railroad." Yet no sooner had ho taken
his seat and sworn before High Heaven to
protect and defend tho interests of the
Commonwealth, than he approved a bill,
passed by a Republican Senate and Houso
of Representatives, which deprived the
State of a just and equitable revenue to
tho amount of three hundred thousand dol
lars a year ; and actually released tho
company from the payment of Seven hun
dred thousand dollars, already duo tho
State. 'With nil this heavy load of iniqui
ty upon his head, this man Curtin has been
renominated, against the earnest protest of
tho honest Ecntiment of the Republican
party 5 and ho now again asks the suf
frages of the poople ',of Pennsylvania.
What think yc of his "brilliant and faith
ful rcoord, whioh triumphed at Pittsburg,"
:::o i
freemen of Columbia County?
"Marts'..
tho perfect man, and behold tho upright 1"
Is ho not "chief among ten thousand and
ono altogether lovely I"
jJSy- It is somewhat singular that tha
opposition stick to tho samo lies year af
ter year ; tnd are silly enough to suppose
tho people forget and will believo them.
In 1850, to go no further back, a great
cry was made by them that Buchanan
would withdraw Tho samo thing w&s
said of Governor. Packer and tho story
is now'rovamped and repoated of Judgo
Woodward and Mr. Vallandigham.
It is a standing electioneering dodgo
with those soft patos, and is well under
stood. Tho friends of those gentlemen
know thoy aro tho men for the times and
tho plaoo and they will bo elected.
J3S?" "It appoars that tho Tory Valan
dighamwas not always opposed to war;"
says the Muncy Luminary ; (abolition)
and it refers to a resolution offcrd by him
upon tho subject of tho Mexican war.
A rofercnoo to tho history of the samo
war will also mako it "appear" that tho
Tories, of tho stripo of tho Luminary,
wero "not always" in favor of war, and
advised tho Mexicans to welcome our sol
diers, with bloody hands to hospital
graves. It is only when tho war is a civ
il war, and against our own citizens that
they aro in favor of it. Queer, aint it T
Dr. Pec John occasionally refers to us,
as the "Tory Editor." Wo repeat, this
is a gross mistake. Mr. Pee John, Editor
of tho uSinut Machine," is a lineal de
cendent of Revolutionary Toryism, and
that fact can be substantiated by hosts of
Hying witnesses in Columbia county and
tho truth of history.
Tonnaqe Tax. Remember, tax-payers
of Columbia county, that A. G. Curtin
after declaring ho would act for tho host
interest of Pennsylvania, signod the act of
tho repeal of tho Tonnago Tax. Reinem
bcr, too, that you will bo taxed to make
up tho enormous deficiency that bill cro
ated.
We direct attention to tho advertise

A Voico from Alleghany.
Mr. Peter 0. Shannon, of Pittsburgh
addressed tho Abolitionists in front of tho
Continental Hotel last evening. In the
courso of his remarks ho said :
"Amongst tho publio men of Alleghany
couuty,I urn almost alono in defending
Governor Curtin."
Mr. Shannon is evidently a leaky ves
sel, or ho would not havo oxposcd tho
disaffection which exists in Alleghany to
Govonor Curtin, By tho time the election
takes placo pretty nearly tho samo thing
will bo said of Pennsylvania that the Pitts

A WHITE MAN FLOGGED.
It is already known to many of our
readers that on tho 11th, Captain J. H.
Poster long ono of tlio editors and pro
otors of tho Dispatch, and still proprietor,
but notwithstanding has been acting under
Lincoln as provost marshal for Allegheny
county on tlio plea that a certain whito
man, named Hngon, had sold himself as
substitute several times beforo, without
form of law, did have the man lashed with
a cowhido until his back was liko a piece
of raw flosh, and bo sank down in utter
exhaustion.
Tho fact will bo found substantially em
bodied in tho following statements mado
by witnesses present :

The Difference.
Wm. H. Jacoby, Editor of a Demo
cratic paper, 7 he Star of the North and
William Burgess present editor of an abo
lition organ, both of Columbia ccuuty,
wcro drafted last fall. Mr. Jacoby sus
pended tho publication of this paper,
shouldered his musket, served through his
time, and has now returned to rcsumo its
publication. Billy Button who had m&do
all his arrangements to conio to Wyoming
and tako obargo of an Abolition organ,
was let off by trirkory, falsehood and in
violation of law; and now cackels out his
hackneyed epithets of k( Copperhead,"
"Southern sympathizer," "traitor," &o,,
in speaking of Mr. Jacoby and his politi
cal friends.
Political knavery and favoritism may
savo this Draft sneak from taking his
ohances in tho conscription with Democrats;
but no kind of long faced sanctimonious
lies will conceal his hypoorioy or shield
him from. the contempt which attaches to
a sneak. 'Ihinhhannock Democrat,

M'ooihvard and tlio Foreigners,
Tho Franklin Repository, in its first is

tho editor's pcou jar souso of justice would
prompt him to say. Tho long expected
arlielo appeared in last week's issuo, a'nd
as a fair sample of this desperate attempt
at justice, wo quoto irom it tho following
exploded libel upon Judgo Woodward,
which, after boing successfully refuted on
several previous ocoasions, has boon again
trumped up by tho Repository, for uso dur
ing tho present campaign. Its chargo
against Judge Woodward is in tho follow
ing languago :
"Judgo Woodward is a man of conco-
dou ability, and as subtlo and dangerous

t-.onsiiiutionai uonvcntion in iau7. in
which body ho was ouo of tho youngest
luuiuuui a. uu tuoK cuusiuerauio part in
tno aoic ucnatos which characterized its
proceedings, and mado his mark csnoeiallv
in his carnctt efforts to disfranchise all for
eigners iu Pennsylvania. IIo mado one
oi m noiosr, spoeoncsin lavor ol incorno
rating tho denial of suffrago to foreigners
with our organio law, but ho failed, so
that tho Irish and Germans who voto for
him in October, can do so with the satis
iactory assurance that if Woodward ha
succeeded in his efforts to araond our Con
stituton,-thoy would now bo without oven
iuu rigui io vote at an."
It appoars from tho published proceed
iugs of the "Reform Convention," whioh
assembled at Harrisburg, in May, 1837
that Mr. Woodward, thon a young man of
twenty-eight, was a dolegato to that Con
volition from Way no county.. In tho
course of tho deliberations of that body
a resolution was introduced by Mr. Thorn
as and seconded by Mr. Konismachor
both Wina delegates, directing "that
committee bo appointed, to enquire into th
expediency of so amending the Constitu
tion of Pennsylvania, as to prohibit th
future immigration into this Stato of for
eigners, frco persons of color, and fugitive
slaves, from other States or Territories.''
This resolution was sustained by a large
number of Whigs in tho Convention, and
probably would have passed, had not Mr.
Woodward, with a view, as ho himself has
sinco stated, to bring out tho truo charac
ter of tho measure, and at tho same time
defeat it if possible, proposed aii amend
ment, which oompcllcd tho withdrawal of
tho original motion, and thus saved thv
foreigners from disfranchisement by their
pretended frionds, tho Whigs. Tho re
marks imputed to Mr. Woodward, in sup
port of his amendment, wcro not taken
down by tho regular secretaries of the
Convention, who recorded tho facts we
have just given ; but by a stenographer,
who gnvo him no opportunity for their re
vision, but incorporated them, garbled
and perverted, into tho "published de
bates." His truo position on this question
may bo learned from his reply to Mr
Earl, iu this samo Convention, on tho 10th
of tho ensuing January, whon ho mado
use of theso words :
"I never did propose to exclude the for
eigners now in the country, from politi
cal privileges ; nor thoso who should at
any time hereafter come to the country
' My amondment was to a proposi
tion made by tho gentleman from Chester,
(Mr. Thomas,) suggesting an inquiry into
the expediency of excluding foreigners al
together from our soil, and the amount of
it was, to give the proposed inquiry a dif
ferent direction from that proposed by tho
gentleman from Chester."
And it may still furthor be gathorcd
from tho following letter written by him
to tho Wayne County llcruld, in 1801, in
which ho said :
"I am not going to profess any new
bom zeal for foreigners nor to flatter their
passions or prejudices. I am going to treat
them as 1 havo always treated them as.

Again, in 18-15, Judgo Woodward was
promised tho voto of tho Nativo American
delegation of Philadelphia to sccuro his
election to tho United States Senate in
easo ho would pledge himsolf to support
the twonty-ono years' naturalization law.
no spurned tho offer, nnd in conscquenco
thereof was defeated by thoso samo votes.
Did this indioato hostility to foreigners ?
Not only this ; during tho existence of tho
Know-Nothing party, Judgo Woodward

Tho Earthquake at Manila.
A friond, to whom wo hero express our
thanks, sends to The Age a copy of tho
Overland Chaina Mail, (llong IS-ong
Juno 13,) from which wo copy tho fol
lowing account of tho tcrrlblo disaster by
which the city of Manny was almost to
tally destroyed,
Manila, Juno 4th, 1803. On tho 3d
instant, at half past seven in tho evening
a circumambient flaino was seen to riso
from tho earth and gird tho city of .Manila,
(tho "Beautuous Flower of the East," ns
sho is finely and poetically designated by
her poiscssors,) and at the same timo a
most terrific quaking of the earth took
placo. It lasted scarcely a minuto, but
in that short space nearly tho wholo of
Fair Manila has been rjduccd to a heap
of ruins. The abomination and desolation
has takon possession of her palaces, her
temples, and herdwclling-places,and death
and destruction havo ridden triumphantly
over tho land. Wo believo that upwards
of a thousand have been killed, and many
thousands wounded, but it is impossible to
say or to estimate. Scarcely an edifice
has escaped without dead or wounded.
Tho good priests, their choristers and
sacristans, and'tho faithful who wero hear
ing tho vespers of Corpus ChrUti, havo
been nearly all buried and suffocrated un
der the ruins cf the Cathedral, and other
ohurohes. The only church that has es
caped wholly is San Augustiue, tho same
that withstood the tremendous shook of
1045. Tko Palaco and nearly all tho
public and private, as well as commercial
edifices, have either been thrown down or
shakon from tlieir foundations. Thank
God ! not a singlo foreigner has been kill
ed ; but two, wc hear, have been suriourly
hurt, though not dangerously. Tho Rod
riguez property, left to tho British nation,
and whero the British Consulate was, has
been entirely destroyed, and is nothing
but a mass of ruins. Wc must felicitate
Spain on tho conduct of hor subjects hero
of all classes ; during this groat and sud
dcn trial, they aetcd admirable. The
Gofernor General and tho Archbishop set
a brilliaut examplo, which has been cop
ied nearly by all, of calmness, fortitudo,
resignation, and energetic t-ynipathy.
Tbo city is deserted nearly, for the edifices
threaton to fall suddenly, and thcro may
bo (though heaven forcfend it ! ) a repo
tation. Beforo tho earthquake took place,
sulphcrous odors wore perceived, rumbling
liko tho fning of ordance,and then.liko tho
approaching of an immenso locomotivo aud
train I Tho flamo that surrounded tho
city was seen from tho Bay to ascend to
wards tho sky ; and another, a triple
snaked ono, came from tho land over tho
water to tho shipping, and threw thorn up
