AYc arc authorized to pt-itc that the
Mass, Meetings announeeJ. hy the last
Cumbria TiiLuw, fur ELcnsLurg and
Johnstown, will not take place. Intelli
gence lias been received from Messrs.
Hall, Etair and Covode that they could
not jiosibly bo present.
Are Wc IeaIy T
Friend.s of Free Labor ! Friends of Free
Speech ! Friends of Free Soil ! Friends of
the Pkoi'Le's Party! Are we ready?
The second Tuesday of October is almost
upou us. Are wc ready ? This is flu. question
hich wo should all usk ourselves. Are
wc ready ? If we are not, our time for
preparation is short.
The Ticket, State, Senatorial and
County, is one of the best and strongest
which could have been nominated. To
tho support of every man on it, every true
friend of the People should rally.
Thomas E. Cochran and William II.
Keim, our candidates for Auditor (lencral
sad Surveyor Geueral, are both men of
the right stamp, and well Cited to 11 the
high offices for which they are nominated.
Their election will be a triumph of the
ri;:ht against the wrong, and a most gb
j ritu rebuke to the unholy administration
of Jmcs Ruchanan.
Of JiOLI.i W. Hall, our candidate for
Senator, wc have already ppoken. Firm
in the principles of our party, and nomi
nated for an important office, he is enti
tled to the support of the People f the
district. Shrewd and intelligent, bold and
fearless, vigilant and watchful, a good par
liamentarian and a read- debater, the in
terests of Cambria, Elair and Clearfield
will not suu'or in his hands. During the
next three years, a United States Senator
in ust be chosen. Vote for tho man who
will vote against TJigler I Elect the man
who may defeat Digler ! Our word for it,
yon will never regret the act.
Of Richard J. Prouifoot, our can
didate for Assembly, it is almost unneces
sary for us to speak. His name is as fa
miliar to the People o Cambria county as
household words. All who enjoy his ac
quaintance can readily testify to his many
good qualities. One of the early settlers of
our county, he has studied our People, and
understands full well their wants and in
terests. Occupying a seat in the Legis
lature last winter, he represented his con
stituents w ith tho greatest acceptance.
All without distinction of Party will con
cede to him the highest abilities as a leg
islator. He is a thinker and a worker; a
man of the People and fir tho People.
IIo will be returned to Harriaburg this
winter with a tremendous majority.
Howard J. Roeerts is our candidal
for Prothonotary. Of him, it is diSieult
to speak with that praise which is so just
ly his due. As a man, he is justly ad
mired by all who know him and their
name is legion. As an oScer, his abili
ties cannot be questioned. The office of
Prothonotary will be no new field of labor
to him. A three-years' service in it as
the Clerk and successor of Milton Rob
erts, lias familiarized h'na with its onerous
and responsible duties. The People well
remember the manner in which ho dis
charged those duties; but the records of
our courts, during that period, will fur-
nL-h his best panegyric. We do not wi;h
to disparage any Prothonotary, wheth
er past or present, but we hesitate not to
say, that there lives not another man in
Cambria county so well fitted in every re
spect to perform the duties of that office,
as Howard J. Roberts. The majority
which he will receive will be a jut tribute
to a deserving man.
In JosEm II. Cami rr.iA., our candi
date for District Attorney, we have a man
well fitted by nature and education to repre
sent the Common wealth in her prosecutions
against vice and crime. He ha? already giv
en thebest evidence of his skill nod ability
as a lawyer, and, although quite a young
man, must soon attain to an enviable po
sition at the bar of our court. His pri
vate character is without spot or blemish,
fn his hands the public morals will be
well cared for ; the majesty of violated
laws will be vindicated; and the perpetra
tors of crimes and misdemeanors will not
go nnwhipt of justice. Let him be elec
ted by a large majority !
D.VV1D J. Jones is our candidate for
Treasurer. The office for which he is
nominated is one in which the People
have a deep interest. The Public purse
may be safely lodged in Mr. Jones' hands.
His qualifications for the post are ample,
aud his character for honesty and integrity
is above suspicion. The People of our
county will show their appreciation of a
good man by voting for and electing him.
Eno.s C. M'Mlllen, our candidate for
Commissioner, is a practical farmer, a man
of much intelligence, good business habits,
and withal a most excellent man. We
cannot see that our convention could pos
sibly have made a wiser nomination for
this important office. Mr. M'Mullen is so
well acquainted with our county and our
people that he is just the man to keep
watch und ward over their interests.
Vote for him, one and all.
JosErn S. Strayer, our candidate for
Poor House Director; Peter Kaylor
and Edward F. Lytlk, our candidates
for Auditors; Edwin A. Vickroy, our
candidate for County Surveyor; and
James Plrse, our candidate for Coroner,
are all well and favorably known to our
readers. Their qualifications "lor the
offices for which they arc respectively be
fore the People, mu3t be admitted by all.
Such then is our ticket, and such are
tho men for whom we are called upon to
voio at the coming election. Can we elect
this ticket? lie can. Put we must work.
The enemy is not idle. Then, friends of
the People's Party, let us say to you, in
the language of the lamented Clay:
Arouse! Awake! Shake off the dew
drops that glitter on your garments, ami
once more march to battle and to victory!
I-i Election Tickets will bo ready for
distribution in the early part of licit week.
Hon. A. ii. Cui ii'.i.
We have thus fur retrained from suing
any thing upon the Gubernatorial Ques
tion, for the reason that tvo have thought
its agitation, at this time, rather "prema
ture. We are now engaged in a State
campaign which should command all onr
energies, because tbe issues involved arc
important, and tho result mu-t and will
have a telling effect, for better or for
worse, upon the future condition of the
People's Party. More than a year, must
elapMj before we are called upon to vote
for Governor, and more than half that
time will have passed ere we shall see the
candidates nominated and in tho field.
"One thing at a time" is a good rule.
Wc would gladly take up and dispose of
matters in their order. We believe it un
wise policy in any party to encumber one
camiiai-n with another, and we could have
desired, therefore, to have passed the sec
ond Tuesday of next month, without say
ing aught in favor of or against any
Nevertheless, this subject is being agi
tated. The Press of the People's Party
teems with articles upon it; and the People
themselves, in various localities, have
told us, through their county conventions,
of the objects of their choice. While
such is the fact, (even though Cambria
has not jet spoken.) we conceive it to be
our duty as well as our right, a.s conduc
tors of a political journal, to point out
the man whom v could wish to seo elec
ted the next Governor of our great and
glorious old Commonwealth. Prominent
amongst the gentlemen who have been
named in connection, with this distin
guished position, are Col. Andrew G.
Curtin, of Centre, Hon. John Covode,
of Westmoreland, Hon. John Allison, of
Reaver, Hon. David Taggart, of North
umberland, Dr. E. D. Gazrani, of PitLs
burg, and Hou. Samnel Calvin, of Blair.
Either of thejc gentlemen would make a
good G over nor; and no matter which of
them receives the nomination from our
Party, wo shall hold ourselves in readine-s
to battle for his election. In doing so,
we shall have the proud consciousness
that we are not only supporting a Party
nomination, but a man who will support
our principles, and who will, if clecred,
inaugurate an administration creditable to
himself aud creditable to the People of
our State. Rut wc have a preference
amongst these gentlemen, and that pref
erence is for the Hon. Andrew G. Cur
tin. In thus expressing ourselves, we
Be ok not to disparage the claims or pros
pects of any one. We wish only to give
utterance to an opinion, with a deep con
viction of its truth, that Col. Curtin is,
abovo all others named, tJie man to load
the People's Party of Pennsylvania to
victory, in the next Gubernatorial contest.
He is unquestionably the strongest man
yet brought forward. As a statesman, he
has already earned a distinguished repu
tation. Whibst Secretary of State under
Governor Pollock, he displayed the rarest
administrative abilities. He is perfectly
familiar with all the varied and responsi
ble duties of the Executiva chair. A
Pcnnylvauiau by birth and by education,
he has devoted him?elf to the study of
the interests and resources of his native
State. No man understands them better
than he; and no man would do more for
their advancement. As a politician, he
has been and is a firm and consistent ad
vocate and supporter of the People's
Party. As a man, he is deservedly popu
lar with all classes. We think no other
named could bring to his support at the
ballot-box so many elements of political
power. In addition to all these admirable
qualities, Col. Curtin is a most powerful
and effective speaker. The momentous
issues which now agitate the public mind,
will render it necessary for our candidate
for Governor, whoever he may be, to can
vass the State. Col. Curtin will be the
man for that emergency. If nominated,
as we fervently hope he may be, he will
go before the People on the great questions
of the day, and be at all times well pre
pared to give "a reason for the faith that
is in him." Of Andrew G. Curtin, the
People's Party of Pennsylvania may well
feel proud. AVith him as their champion
in the gubernatorial contest of 1SG0, they
will be led to a victory as glorious as it
will be triumphant.
In the Presidential contest of ISoG, it
will be remembered, that the great hobby
of the Loco-Foco Party was "Popular
Sovereignty." It was their cry, their
watch-word, their argument. Everywhere,
the question was put to us: "rrlmt can Le
ftiu-fr tlai to ht tJic j)t oj,7.: of a territory
mauuje tiuir oicu Jo.ucstic ajj'ulrs in. tlu ir
own H-oy ?" This was Popular Sovereign
ty. It was Democracy. It was calculated
to take with the masses. Tho doctrine
had been set forth at large in the Cincin
nati Platform ; it was explained and de
fended by Loeo-Foco orators ; and. flames
lluchanan quite lost his identity in be
coming the embodiment of it. The Op
position Party was deuounced as sectional,
and we were told that, if our candidates
should be elected, the Union would inev
itably be dissolved. Of course, all this
was gammon. Nevertheless, many be
lieved it, and voted accordingly for James
Buchanan and Popular Sovereignty.
Buchanan was elected. The People of
Kansas wit-hed to frame a constitution,
and be admitted as a State. They wished
to vote upon that constitution. They
wished to say for themselves whether or
not that constitution should recognize
Slavery as one of their domestic institu
tions. In short, they wished to manage
their domestic affairs in their own way.
How stood James Buchanan then? Who
docs not remember his attitude on the
Lccompton Swindle? False to every
pledge, false to Popular Sovereignty, and
false to the People who had confided in
him, he used every means ia his power to
fvrce upon the People of Kansas, a Sla
very Constitution. The honest men of
all parties denounced his course. The
People discovered that they had been
soi l; and that Popular Sovereignty, ia the
haud3 of James Buchanan, was a vile
Who opposed James Bnchanan ia this
infamous course ? Who denounced his
administiation ? Who protested against
his dastardly attempt to throttle a free
people? Who charged it, by speech and
through the Press, that he had been false
to his pledges ? We ask, who did all this ?
Such "Democrats," reader, as Thotuas
Collins, Robert L. Johnston, Philip 8.
Noon, John Fenlon and James C. Noon.
But where stood AUOUSXIN D LRU IN ?
O where was he in tha,t dread day ? The
firm and fast fiiend of Lecomiton ; a
Buchanan-man then ; a Buchanan-man
now; a Buchanan-mau all tho time!
And yet, strang'e to say, those very five
"Democrats" that we have named, are
now frr Durbin, and battling for his
election I O consistency, thou art still a
Reader ! Are you prepared to sanction
and endorse the iniquities of James Bu
chanan, and his rotten and unholy admin
istration ? Then vote for Auoustin Dur
DIN. But if you wish to do right, and
we know the majority of men are disposed
so to do, then vote for Louis AY. Hall.
Before another number of Tlw. AVjui
nian is issued, the Agricultural Fair will
be upon us. From present- indications, it
will be a grand affair, far outstripping any
of its predecessors. Johnstown, and the
South generally, we are informed, will be
well represented. Quite a number of tho
fast horses from that region will bo enter
ed for premiums. It gives ns much pleas
ure to announce this fact, and we know it
will be highly gratifying to all of our read
ers who are favorable to these annual ex
hibitions. We doubt not that the com
petition in this line will be such as to give
a new impulse to the stock-breeders of our

Agricultural Fairs, and would gladly do
anything or say anything in our power,
which might tend in the least to their pro
motion. A'e had intended, therefore, to
try to say something in this number of onr
paper, in regard to the influence which
they exert, aud tho practical benefits and
advantages which result from them. For
tunately, however, wc have been saved
the disagreeable task of boring ourselves
and our readers in the attempt. AVe have
happened upon a few remarks once made
by the lamented Daniel AYebstcr, a practi
cal farmer, and one of the greatest iu the
catalogue of American statesmen. These
remarks express our ideas so much better
than we can do ourselves, that we subjoin
them, with this simple request: Let every
body who can possibly do so, come to the
Benefits of Acuicci.tcual FAins. The
principle of association the practice of bring
ing men together bent on tho same general
object, pursuing the same general end, unit
ing their intellectual and their physical efforts
to that purpose, is a great improvement in tho
present age. And it has become essential to
the best ititerests of the farmers of the Com
monwealth, that these annual fairs should be
established, and that they should be univer
sally attended. From the meeting of men to
gether who have the same general object, who
wish ior improvements m the same general
pursuits of life that they may converse with
one another that they may compare with
eiicn otner tlieir experience, and that they

is in this point of view in this greatly prac

M'junli'.nsrr, for referring me an J. his
to Juife louias, m answer to my rtqejst
to kiio v v,hat 1- luenlit bv that elau-o ia the
Cori-titution, if it eloes not give Congress
powi. r ta prohibit the extension of Slavery
U'.to t-rr. lories, viz.- '-Congress shall have
power!) .il.-pose of, and make all needful
rules a i; 1 regulations rc-pectiug the territor
ies." Hut I wi.-h to inform Judge Don -la?
that the above clause, together with Art. 1-t,
Sec. inh, in the Constitution, (putting an end
to the hapoi tatiou of si ivu
1H0S. 1 were inserted in the Constitution
the .-da very agitation was in its fullest height
in 1737. To keep the Tnion fn vi Lr.r-tin-.-,
they had to make a compromise. Ia this
compromise it was agreed that -uch of the
then exiotiug Suites, that wished to retain
their slaves, might do so; and contiuae their
importation if they saw proper until IS1 8,
reserving to Congress the right of imposing
S10 a head, as a duty. After ISO-., it was
left to the option of Congress as to whether
the import ition should be further permitted er
not. ISut we find that Congress did enact
severe laws against their importation. I!v
this compromise it is plain, that, in 1787, the
thcu existing States that whed to retain their
slaves might do so. And further, it is plain,
that, to put an cud to this perplexed contro
versy about slavery, the above clause concern
ing territories, was inserted in the Constitu
tion, so that Congress might put a stop to the
extension of slavery, if it should see proper.
There is no must in this clause; no more than
iu the clause which places it iu the power of
Congress to prohibit the importation of slaves.
Suppose Congress had refused to enact a huv
to prohibit the importation of slaves; would
it not be acting agreeably to the power dele
gated to it. 1-y tho Constitution, "in the com
Host certainly it would.
Contend according ti tlin i.o-.-.
the Constitution has delegated to Congress,
the same power to put a stop to the extension
of slavery into territories, us it did to put a
stop to slave importation.
All I ask is, let Congress have tho j ewer
delegated to it, and If it wen LI th:i ref.;-. to
put a stop to the extension oi slavery, it
would be still aetinsr ngreeably to the power
delegated to it by the Constitution.
In conclusion, I would ask Judge Douclas,
if he thinks, that the framers of 'the Cofisti
tion, (when trying to settle the dispute about
slavery,) were so short-sighted, that thev
conld not see far enough, when thev put the
said clause in the Constitution to "give Con
gress the power to put a stop to the extension
of slavery into the territories, as well as they
gave it the power to put a stop to their im
portation in Art. 1st, Sec. 9th? Does the
Judge really think that they only meant to
give Congress the power to seU old" muskets

To tfik Eoitok of Ti: K Allto It.VMAV: Allow
me, through the columns of your spicy paper,
to call the attention of your" readers "in and
around Ebeusburg, to a subject which should
interest them, viz: "The Ebeusburg Lyceum,"
or "Literary Society." This institution,
founded in the fall of 18.V1, by a few mpn who
felt the need of .something of this kind, has
with some rare exceptions held its weekly
sessions on every Friday evening since that
time. First, in the Hall above the store now
occupied by Davis & Jones; but of late it has
rented the second story of Myer's new build
ing, which it occupies in connection with the
'Sons of Temperance."
The hall is very comfortably furnished with
seats, carpets, hanging lamp, itc, making it
a pleasant place to hold such meetings. There
is al.-o connected with the Society, a library
contfiiuing a choice selection of works, free
under certain restrictions, to all tho members.
The present and past prosperous condition
of the Society, is in great part elue to the
persevering ItVotts of such men as Judge
Jones, Jno. Williams, David H. Roberts and
Isaac Evans, Esquires, ns well as our loqua
cious friend, Daniel O. Evens, and some cilu r
worthy members, who are never from ti.'j

after the Cemetery ; sell the lots; receive tL--money;
keep an account of the lots sold. ti.s
ruoacy received, the expenses laid out, i.-.t
and to account with the church annually.
No w, the re have been some thirty lots sold
persem3 who are not members of said cheri!. ;
which lots cciount to one hundred and C::j
dollars one bund rod of which is not paid -s
as yet. We sometimes may forget that v. e a.-B
indebted to one another; but persons, who I
will not say forget that they have buried their
dearest friends there, (for that cannot bo for
gotten,) do nevertheless forget the obllgatlcs
they owe to the .pot so hallowed and so
ere J to memory: and thc-y must be forget:.!
indeed. Now, call to memory the spot vhe-re
you have Luiicd your dearest friends: ti.a
ask if ywu huvu paid for tho ground. If rot,
please, hand over iLe money to the SuperinttL
d :i-.t of the Cemetery, from whom you wiil
the number of your lot and a receipt L.r veicr

uied lately go on with the improvements al
ready eominoiiocd. and which are so essential.

Our able and vigilant District Attorney,
Charles Mayer, Esq.. got on the track of s ..e
of their satelites. aud in less than three wetks
had three of thcru arrested, indicted, trie.'., an i
two of them convicted und sentenced to the
Penitentiary for a year apiece. The sentenc
wa- light, from the fact that the evidence ad
duced on the trial, showed that the crirair.!;
were rather the dupes than the real partite
engaged iu the business.
The President of the Hank from which thes"
notes purported to have come, was a witr.c-!
in the ca-es. He testified that he had bc-.r.
President of the Hank for some twenty y -.it!,
nnd that the Hank had never issued a "note :'
the denomination of three dollars, and that his
i-icurie i.iid the Secretary's, appended to theft-ills,
were both forgeries.
