All. We should like to know why such
an event ought to create surprise, and es.
pecially why the amiable whige should
be indignant at the suggestion that they will

•With Antimasonic leadtre. In great
'- setters as well as small, the whigs have
yielded to the Antimaaons—so humble and
subservient did they become, that the grand
twister of the party made a public boast
that they were "whippable articles"—and
west after this,no longer ago than last year,
after evincing all the bitterness, and show
ing the utmost reptignanze to Autimasouic
dictation, they clutched at a chance to come
promise, marched out of their entrench
meets and surrendered at discretion to the
Antimasonic forces. In 1840, Thaddeus
Stevens and his men- nominated Harrison
in.a State Convention, virtually declaring
that he should be the federal candidate in
,Pennsylvania, whether he was nominated
by the federal national convention or not.
'To this bold and decided movement may
attributed,more than to any other cause,
'the nomination:of Hari ison. A vast ma.

and again have the blue noses of Afleghe- 1
tly county made the whigs capitulate and
'tape such crumbs as might be thrown to
"Olom. The history of these events is fresh
in the mind of every man who has atten
ded to the politics of the county, and we,
need not detail it here. But does it not
render the pretended indignation of the
whige at the intimation that they will again
unite with the antimssnns, most ridiculous!
Have they not, for years, evinced as much
contempt for the blue noses as they now
affectto feel, and have they not regularly
pi themselves into tie hands of Craig,
St is & Co.
Itis true the whigs of this county stand
nit utiother footing now. They have hold
of.t4-hig end of the stick, and they evince
some disposition to repay the blue noses
for former injuries. Still, judging from
their former conduct, men may conclude
thatve -union is a possible thing; and when
the whigs recall the very vacillating course
they have pursued in these matters, they
will not complain if lookers- on should sup
pose there was some little doubt whether
they would abide by their ticket—and hold
on to their present palpabl 3 advantages o.
ver the blue noses.
lICP The Advocate, in speaking of our
medlion of the proposed re-union, says:
"We do not know where the idea originated,
noises in the fertile brains of our loco loco neigh
bora. who perhaps think all stratagems lair in pol
tics as in war."
Now, whether the Advocate knows any
thing of the origin of the idea or not, we
have it from many unquestionable sources
that the. matter was talked of among our
opponents—nay, mare, that certain of the
candidates had expressed a willingness
that the thing should be done. But the
idvociteintimates that it is a "stratagem"
, of our own. We have puzzled ourselves
in vain to find out to what result suc
"stratagem" would tend,or wherein it can
be supposed to consist. If our stratagem
would bring the contending factions of fed.
erotism together, surely our chances of
success would not be increased, though we
truly believe they would not be greatly
lessened. And the Advocate would hesi
tate to admit that any stratagem of ours
could keep them , asunder if they wished to
unite, or that the indomitable resolves of
the whigs could be made stronger or weak
er, by our thanceavreing. We feel confi
dent that the Advocate editor, before he
sees Ibis article, will have learnt that the

We stated yeeterdey disk we leo* give
a synopsis of the V ptoof adduced by tint
"Ago": 0( its chargei against M.
M'Kenna, published on Wednesday. The
statement of Mr. M. Smith, the tavern
keeper in whose stable Rooney iied,is giv.
en, as also an affidavit of Isaac Jerome, tt
person in Smith's employ, and these coni
stitute the evidence. They corroboratei
the charges of the 'Age,' and if their state;
merits are.correct, Mr. McK. was perhaps
chargeable with neglect of official duty.—
But this, it seems to us, would afford no
apology to any keeper of a public .house to
let a fellow being die in his stable. Mr.
Smith says he learnt that the man had ta—
ken shelter in his stable on Saturday, and
that at 7 o'clock on the evening of that day,
he left a legal request for the overseer of the
Poor to take clurge of and relieve the
wants of the man. It is not stated, howev
er, that the man was brought into the
house; we infer from this, that he lay in
the stable into which he crept at first, and
that he was suffered to die there. Now,if
Mr. M'Kenna was derelict in his duty, we
thick he should not escape censure—but
was it not plainly the duty of Mr. S. as the
keeper of a public house, to take Rooney
into his dwelling,and provide for his wantsl
If Mr. Smith had done this, no blame
could attach to him.
We autjoin the affidavits made in de
fence of Mr. M'K.enna, upon which he
seem a willing to rest his case:

from Uniontown. Mr. M'Kenna told hirn he gain

back ti where he had gained a residence. Ile said
that his residen se ceas not in Uniontown, but in
Baltimore. Ho stated that ho wanted to go to
Butler, and Mr. M'Kenna said that a conveyance
would have to be furnished to take him to the
next Township, and be forwarded to Baltimore in
-that way. Mr. Smith did not, to my knowledge,
proffer a conveyance to take the man away. I did
not think from the appearance of the men,that ho
would die so soon. I was present the next mor
ning, just after the inquest. I saw Mr. M'Kenna
give Mr Hamill a quantity of muslin to w rap a
round the man, and told him to use plenty, and
that if there was not enough, he would get more,
I helped Mr Hamill to put. the body in the coffin
and saw him nail the lid on. The coffin was not

Some Human Nalh•re in Dogs.—lt is
customary to kick dogs about—to pass or
dinances to prevent them from ranging at

humanity in them; yet nothing is farther
from truth. Of this we had occular dem
onstration the other morbing• A. small
dog had managed to pick up a bane, rath
er bountifully supplied with meat; and was!
making the best of his way to a place
where he might enjoy his meal in quietness;
when he was assailed by a large dog, and
thrown with his back to the earth and feet
to the sun—his assailant astride of him,
and threatening all sorts of bloody murder,
in case of resistance. He seemed to say
to the fallen one, 'You weak puny rascal,
how dare you presume to walk the streets
with such a bone as that, without the per ,
mission of your betters? Such choice bi s
were never intended for the likes of you,
but fot those who are able to defend the
right of their possession. Yott deserve

The prostrate cut made an assenting
motion with h:s paws— -losod his eyes in
token of sincerity and stittmission, and was
let off, minus the b)ne. His conqueror,,
then, with great -c o nplacency, - picked up
the spoils of the vanquished, and with
head and tail erect, started for his kennel.
As we were watching this exhibition of:
'human nature' in the canine species, and
regretting that dogs could not soar above
the rapacity of man, we observed a much
larger dog issue from behind an empty
box, and with an angry Yelp, light on the
possessor of the bone. The struggle was
but momentary, and the spoils changed
hands, or, rather mouths again. Who
will or cart say, after such exhibitions that
dogs have not a large share of 'human na
tore' in their constitutions? One man, ei
ther by force or fraud, appropriates to
himself the goods of another; while this, in
turn, is despoiled by the superior cunning
of a third. The case is clear; ei•
Chet the dogs have a large portion of 'hus
man nature' in composition, or men have
more dog nature than he usually gets
credit for. How the case may be we will
not affirm; yet this we assert, without the
fear of dogs or men, that life with both is
but a struggle for the entire bone, and that
the right of discovery is no guaranty of
possession.—Rock Daily didv.
