' Wednecdy, EovcralrcrT, 1854. '
Fird. On Saturday evening last, about 8
o'clock", the people of cur town ,: were thrown
into quite an excitement from a 'bright light
easiof this place, and ringing of bells. IC was
generally supposed that a house or ' barn'was
on fire, but after repairing in ; the direction
from whence the light proceeded; it " was soon
discovered to be a board-pile, lying ontlid
bank of the river, belonging to F. P. Ilnrx
thal. They bud been hauled and piled there
for the purpose of taking them to market ns
soon as the river would raise. There were
about one hundred and fifty thousand feet
burnt to ashes. . :
A'man, living in that neighborhood, by the
name of Benjamin Lounsberry was taken up
on suspicion of having set tiro to the boards,
brought to town and tried. lie was held to
bail in the sum ol $1000 for his appearance at
DCp-The next House of Representatives will
be largely anti Administration., and as largely
-Imtrican.i No man will-be chosen United
States Senator, unless he'ii an American by
birth, md in favor of Americans ruling Ameri
ca, opposed to slavery and favourable to a re
peal of the naturalization laws. There will be
many new faces in"lhc"IIonsc numerous old
fogies have been left at home, to ruminate up
on the uncertainty of political aspirations.
So far as we can judge, the new members
will compare favorably, in point of talent, witbj
those defeated but much of their usefulness
will dej end .upon the selection of proper ofa-,
cers (o preside- over their deliberations. .

Now, that the election is over; and having
resulted so gloriously, it is notfiing more than
right and proper to refer to those whose labors,
"aided to achieve so brilliant a victory. To'Jc
-sure, the people of all parties contributed to
the election of the Hon. James Pollock ; but
we kn.ow'bT "uo oii'e who" labored more zealous
ly for the success of Pollock, than Col. Cur
tin, of Centre county, chairman of, the Whig
State Central Committee. "Wc therefore ful
ly endorse the following from the Phi la. Duihj
Sews. . - , ,
Col. Clktix. We would do injustice to
meritorious-services of an able and faithful
Whig, if we were to withhold the meed of
praise due to-Col." Curtin, tho indefatizable
Chairman of the "Whig State Committee, for
His gaiiant ana, noiae ocanng throuzhout the
entire canvass, which has resulted in such a
brilliant and unprecedented victory. Of all
the duties ncrtaiuing to such a canvass, those
of the Chairman of the State Committee, arc
tne most arduous and embarrassing, requiring
not only a great amount ol energy and perse
verance,but sound tliscrction-nnd consummate
- tact and skill.
'- Col. Curtin so conducted the canvass as to
avoid all show or parade, and to accomplish
the greatest amount of good in .the shortest
space' of time. Instead of following the ex-
' ample of the Chairman of the Loco Foco
- State Committee, and keeping the columns of
.. tho papers of his party nued with long addres
ses from the opening until the close of the
campaign, he confined himself to' two brief
and pointed addresses, issuing one at the com-
; mencement, and the other at the close of the
canvass. He adopted another and more effi
cient mode of effecting a thorough orjraniza
-tion, and ensuring success. . His aim was to
serve his party, and promote the election of
us canuiuaicgj ami ne aui not nesitate to take
the steps most likely" "fri "accomplish the ob
, jeet, though in doing so he could not make
the display of himself in tho papers as Mr.
Bonham did." The result attests the w isdom
and correctness of his conduct, and the effi
ciency of his labors as chief manager of the
canvass. All honor to him for his luithfulaud
Editorial Correspondence.:?; r
; .; ;.. v Mount . Vkexon Uouse,
' Philadelphia, Oct. 28. y
'. Dear Journal r--After a tiresome journey of
four days, by way of Bellefonte, Lock; Haven,
"Williamsport, and Milton, we find ourself seat
ed in the comfortable parlor of the" Mount
Vernon House, -amid the noise and confusion'
of tho great city of Brotherly Love, indicting
this epistle to our ovn chair5 '-away hack in
Clearfield." Furnished, by our accommoda
ting host 3Iaj. Barrett, with the morning pa
pers, and surrounded with all the comfort
and luxuries of this elegant house, wo feel
perfectly "at home," and cannot avoid recom
mending the Mount Vernon to our friends as
the ne plus vlira of good ' hotels. Xo ' atten
tion is spared, and no means left untried to
render its guests comfortable, and consequent
ly ' the nous'e is flourishing 'beyond the most
sanguino expectations of its enterprising
and gentlemanly proprietors." It is emphati
cally a "Clearfield House,' and should receive
the patronage of our citizens visiting the City,
who desire 'comfortable quarter??" ' ' '"' "
During our" journey', wc visited the Govern
or elect, at Lis heme in MiTfon. If we admir
ed Judge Pollock' as we knew him through
the medium of the press, and the rcpresenta-:
tions of others, that admiration is' increased
almost to idolitry by an bours familliar inter
course. Never before have we met a more
perfect gentleman, nor conversed with oiic
who exhibited such familiarity with all the
great questions of the day , while his easy, un
assuming manners, and unpretending deport
ment, led us to believe we were conversing
with tTic most intimate friend of our youth.
He spoke of his election as a triumph' princi
ples, as an American, not a "Whig vietorv. Of
Governor Bigler he ypoke in terms of great re
spect and esteem, regarding his defeat as the
result of a combination bf now elements in
the party politics-' of the country; and not the
effect of personal dissatisfaction or dislike:
To the people of Clearfield he " returned 'his
grateful acknowledgements, for their confi
dence and support of himself as the exponent
of American -principles, while they had in the
field one of the ir own estimable and worthy
citizens. On iiie futnre cf Pennsylvania, and
the course of his Administration, he 'convers
ed in such a manner as' 'that we mav safelv
prebict for him one of the most ' brilliant nd
successful Administrations in the'-'historv of
our Commonwealth-' We left him; prondthat
cur labors and our -vote had been given-to a
good man, a sincere - American," 'a' true heart
ed Pennsylvanian, and art estimaMo citizen.
Among the ntinres'spoken of for the speak
ership of the next Ifonse, we hear 'mentioned
that ofour friend David C. Boal, the-success
ful American candidife: nr. Centre". ' We know
of no one who woull.occujy the chair of John
Ilaudcock, with more gracv;, ability, and dig
nity than our friend David. Wc hope lie may
be the man. ...
The most excithig topic of .conversation
among the politicians here, is ,the: contest for
United States Senator. Of all the names men
tioned, the claims of no one are more general
ly allowed, than these of our friend Col. A. G.
Custix. His brilliant, laborious and success
ful services in the late contest, . as Chairman
of the State Central Committee, together with
his marked ability, and sound position on ail
the groat questions c-f.the day, point to him as
the man, ofidl others, best entitled to that
distinguished position. That he has the best
wishes of the masses of the party, there can
be no" doubt, and' it is to.be hoped be will also
stand as fair in the Senate and House.. .
The case of Dr. Bk.vle, the Dentist, who
was convicted yesterday of an attempt to com
mit ;in outrage on the person of a young lady,
while under the influence of Ether," creates a
good deal of talk' in all circles of the city. An
application lias been made for a new trial.
Business ii still brisk.' The hotels are well
'filled,' and the city full of strangers. , Ned.
Forrest, the cchbratcd American Tragedian,
is playing at the. Walnut, aiid is attracting
crowded houses.' The last number of the
Jo;irn-:l cCmes to mc like "a letter from
home.4 By the way, it is very highly spoken
of here, and causes us to feel gratified that
our labors have not been entirely in vain.;
We "expect to be home in time for the next is

Fifty Persons Killed 2"uenlh--scvcn Injured.
Buffalo, October 28 The accident upon the
Great Western liailroad, which occurred yes
terday, near Catham, proves to have been aw
full" destructive to human life.
The accident was: occasioned by the cylin
der head of tiie engine bursting, which threw
the train out of time. . After a .delay of two
hours the train preceded but ii dense fog came
on, and when near Catham a collision occur-,
red with a gravel train. -; - ,
... ,Tiie locoiaoltvc of the Express train-was
overturned, crushing the first and second class
errs almost entirely, and killing or - wounding
every person in the second class car, mainly
emigrants. In all iweniy-fipc men and eleven
women were killed, and twenty . one men and
ifC.'y woiuen so dreadfully crushed, that " at
least one-half cannot live. There are also
eleven childern killed. ; .-

, say that -IS jiw-sons were Jiillcd, and .two of
the wounded have since died, making fifty
deaths in all.' " ' ' ' ' '" ': "

to get full particulars of this .terrible liailroad
accident, .but we learn that, there were a num

It was four hours before, tiic manglevl re

L.vtc:;:. The Niagara aYrived at Halifax on
Wednesday morning. The dispatches by her
inform us of no additional fighting in the Cri
mea. Sevastopol is besieged by the allies on
the south and east sides only, leaving the
nor.th. and west open to the approach of a re
lieving army. The most 'powerful fortifica
tions are, however, :i the besieged sides of
the harbor, though, as .they are intended for
sea defenses, they must prove comparatiyely
useless against a land attack. The Russian's
have blocked - the entrance of. the harbor In
sinking several largo ships, with all then: guns
and rigging, but it is proposed by the allies to
employ the Simoon, a powerful iron steamer,
to act as a batteri-ng-ram, ami force a passage
through tins sunken barrier. The remainder
of the Russian fleet .pro also ready to be sunk
iii the inuer harbor if there is danger of their
being taken by the allies. Ten thousand men
have been landed from these ships to assist in
the defense of the. place. Admiral -Dundas
has sent a similar reinforcement. to the allies
from the British ships which have no longer
anything to do. Menchiko.Tis expecting" re

reached the camp before; -Sevastopol before

assail the . place- before the Russians could
make any-grca.t. movement against them. In
these five days there must have been a great
deal of tremendous fighting. In Asia Shamyl

Tiie. Struggle in Eansas.
From the day that, the Kausas-Xebrask bill
was clothed with the forms of law, we have
done what we could to encourage' the emigra
tion to Kansas of capable, energetic, indepen
dent farmers and mechanics, who would en
deavor to make, her a Free Territory and in
time a Free State. Wc have never represen
ted that region as a paradise, though we be
lieve it contains very much .good land, enjoys
a fair, mild climate, and lies on one of the
great future highways of commercial inter
course between Western Europe and Eastern
Asia. AYe do not believe every one fitted to
succeed in Kansas, and have uniformly dis
couraged the migration thither of any- hilt res
olute,, strong-handed workers,' who would be
likely fo succeed' any where. And, though
the false cry tliat the-.Uastcrn Anti -Slavery
men were sending paupers into the new Ter
ritories has been echoed through Missouri
and along the' border until many believe it, we
are confident that a letter ciass of immigrants,
one more able to-sustaia'- itself, has never yet
settled in any now country than that which has
left New-York' and 'New-Englaml to uphold
the .ig of Freedom in Kansas: ' ''
From the d-iy Knnsas was organized to the
present, we have hoard of no single act of out
rage or rojjbery Iry ,iiny .member, of the Anti
Slavery emigration. It has not even been al
ledged by the' Missouri ' Pro Slavery journals
that any person m their interest has been mo
lested or menaced by any set tier from the East.
Xo impediment has been offered to the freest
influx of emigrants from the Slave States; no
one has even pretended 'to' keep -away from
apprehension?, of wrong or violence from our
sort of people. " Xo meeting was ever held by
Anti-Slavery . pioneers to denounce or deter
immigration1 from the South. Yet, on the
other hand, meeting after meeting has been
held by Missourians, now on one side of the
line, then on the other, at which violent and
threatning resolves against Anti-Slavery im
migration were passed, and every indication,
of a settled purposed to crowd Slavery into
Kansas, peaceably, has been given. "Pop
ular Sovereignty," in the Missouri acception,
is the sovereignty of the rifle ar.d bowie-knife;
nd it is the arbitrameent- of these, and not of
the ballot-box, that the Pro Slavery party in
and near Kansas has constant!- invoked.
We ;tg our readers to note" these facts: It
js very plain that bloodshed iu Kansas is only
to be avoided by extreme meekness and for
bearance on the; part of Anti-Slavery men.
We ask all to consider the state of incipient
civil war already existing in Kansas, and judge
whether Congress ought , to throw this fire
brand of Slavery agitatioiV' into each new ter
ritorv it mav organize. Is it not better to
ainreiitec to every newly organized territorv
a tn:ly Republican constitution, thus preclu
ding the subjection of one man to another as a
chattel, and allowing the st-Hlers to prs.'cni.

The American aad Foreign Population.
The JersyCHyScwiit says, "it appears from
the census that there aro seventeen; pi illions,
seven hundred and thirty-seven thousand, five
hundred and five native born inhabitants in the
United States, while there aro but two mill
ions, two hundred and ten thousand, eight
hundred and twenty-eight who were born iu
foreign lands;" aud yet, strange as it may
seem, a very large portion of the offices not
only in the gift of the people, but iu the gift
of the, present jiationril admini.stratjon.with not
a few state administrations, arc held by for
eigners. Even should wc admit their right to
i proportion of these places of trust, in accord
ance with their numerical strength, tho comp
utation would fall infinitely far short of ths
number of offices they now hold in this coun.
try. Xow, we ask, if so small a quota of aliens
have already wielded such an immense influ
ence in the United States, as to secure a much
larger portion of the offices of trust than
Americans have meted out to themselves, (and
in many instances have held the balance of
power between the two parties, which thcy
have sedulously turned to their own purposes,
and to the advantage of Papal supremacy,)
what -would be the state of things in this coun
try five years hence, if uo cltecks were inter
vened by the sons of the soil, against the un
natural and monstrous inroads which have al

and religious rights, through our own misplac
ed and much abused confidence in the thous

The editor of tin: Trenton True 2merictin
jumps at the strange conclusion that because
there are but deceit foreigners to every one
hundred Americans born, there is no danger to
be apprehended from that quarter, or from the
causees which have already produced suchdis
astrous results, not only in the body politic of
our land and nation, but in. the body physical
of no small portion of our countrymen,
who were actually guilty of" exercising the
rights and privileges of American citizens, as
guaranteed to them by the Constitution of the
Statea immunities which happen tq be at va
rienee with the decrees of the Pope of Rome,
and with the secret. plotthigs of his Jesuitical
tools, whom ho sent here for tho purpose of
robbing Americans of their inheritance, sub
jugating the nation, and turning this glorious
land of promise into a wilderness of woe, and
i-harnal house bf the Devil. It will not do,
Mr. Trenton American, to palm off such idle
speculations upon the "natives," or, if yon
like the term, better, upon "A wakened Ameri
ca !" for though she is yet an infant ingrowth,
when contrasted with other nations of the
earth, yet she is "too old a bird to be caught
with such chaff." It is worse than useless thus
to attempt to daub her with "untcin pored mor
tar ;" as !he is now probing the wound which
has been inflicted upon her to the very core,
and will not rest content till the cause of cor
ruption is thorough- eradicated from the parts
'Facts are stubborn things!" aye! they are
.stubborn, indeed, now-a-days. Xeed we point
the editor of the I'nie.'lntcriata, and every oth
er Locofoco editor in tiie laud, who sides with
him in Jj.is anti-American, doctrines and dog
mas we repeat, need we point these infatua
ted repsentativc.s of thtf -Press, who appear to
be frightened nf their "own shadow,' and In-gin
to be "horrified at the phantom "Know Xotli
ingism," to the unnumbered outrages upon
Americans and American rights by misguided
and deluded foreigners, which come teeming
upon us from every part of the land, through
the public prints which arc so frequent, that
it is utterly impossible to keep track-of tlitmi,
and so henious and unprovoked. in their char
acter, as to cause Apollyon himself to blush at
the thought that bis dominions are to be peo
pled by such demons in human shape? Wo
will just point to one instance nf those gros
and insufferable interferences with our civil
and religious ri.srhts. We allude to the late
attempt of the German Roman Catholics at
Cincinnati to prevent the Presbyterians from
opening a Sabbath School of their persuasion
in a location suited to their own convenience
and purposes. Tell it not in America! pub
lish it not in Rome, that in this laud of civil
and religious freedom in the nineteenth cen
tury Amkuicaxs have actually been forbid by
foreigners to exercise privileges which would
scarce bo denied them in heathen lands, and
which both England aud France cheefully ex,
tend them rights which arc theirs not only by
inberitence but ly the laws of God and the true
leadings of hi' Providence. But we forliear
there is not sufficient descriptive powers in the
English language to portray the enormity and
reckless impudence of these degraded worship
ers at the unhallowed shrine of Popery. Sun.
Shocking jIi rber and Si icide near Xew
BtrnGir,. X. Y. Ou the 22 inst., some of the
neighbors of a man and his wile named Smith,
who lived alout fonrmiles from Newburg, en
tered the dwelling of Smith and found the
wife dcid in her bed and the . lifeless- form of
lior husband lying in a pool of blood on tho
floor, with his throat cut from ear to car.
But the strangest feature of this sad affair is
that the body of the woman bore not the slight
est mark of violence and appeared as though
she" had fallen asleep in death; and what adds
still more to the mystery is the fact that the
neigiibors were in the house the evening pre
vious and found both in their usual health.
The persons who called upon theni state that
Smith was usually rude iii manner and very
blasphemous, and upon his wife's upbraiding
him and telling him that she did not think his
conduct a proper prcperation for the Sabbath,
lie remarked that she need not worry herself
about tint, as neither of them would ever
spend another Sabbath in this world. .As it
was his habit to make reckless speeches notli
ing serious was thought of this expression,
but the morning's, light revealed a scene that
fully realized his fearful assertion. Coroner
Farmenter, of Xewburg was summoned to
hold an inquest over Ihe bodies on Sunday,
but the rasult of the investigation we have not
learned at the time of our going to press. It
is supposed, however, that Smith adminis
tered to bis wife some kind of poison which
had an immediate .and deadly efiect. The
affair is a mysterious one altogether. Police
