The "Penrisylv:anian" and its Corres-
Thia paper, of the date of Monday last,
publishes - a letter dated Huntingdon, Feb. 21,
iii which the foll Owing occurs :
"The fearless course pursued by the Pennsyl_
vanian in exposing' the corruption of Simon
Cameron, is winning for it golden opinions
from all parties in this vicinity. A 'corporal's
guard!' could., hardly be found in this county
willing to second the pretensions of this ,
ster to the high station of ''. S. Senator. It
may seem astonishing that in view of this fact,
and with a full knowledge of the antagonism_ of
the people this region to Simon Cameron,
that an' editor' could be found with the moral
hardihood, or rather turpitude, who would en
dorse the perfidy of John Cresswell, the Senator
from this district, in voting for Cameron."
The creature who wrote the, letter publish
ed in the Pennsylvanian, is well known to
us, and:thiS cominunity,*and,is anything but
favorably known . ; and if - the i Pennsylvanian
has no more respectable or creditable corres
pondents than this one,. we think the "gol
den opinions" will be very Much at a dis
The assertion that - Mr. 'Cameron's friends
in this county do not amount to a "corporal's
guard," is,simply a , bo!d, naked lie,' and de
vised and uttered by !belittle Writer with pre
meditation, for effect on
,the election, of Uni
ted States Senator. • The truth is, no matter
what the result of that election may be, - there
are not overra score of men in this town of
all parties who do not favor Mr. Cameron's
election ;andthe'"burst of indignation," spo
ken'of by the writer,, with which Mr. cress
well's votes were received, is news to every
one here. it Must hair& been about: the little
fellow's own, per Son, and judging from the
law of forces, could hardly have extended, be
yond his own inexpressibles. If the Pen
nsylvanian knew his _ correspondent, as well
as he is knOwn here, it would hardly-con
sider itself honored by his company. So
pure a paper as it professes , to be, would cer
tainly be amazed to learn that the. Democrat.
ic standing of its correspondent in thiscoun
ty has been tested by the constant rejection
of his.claims to little party distinctions by
Democratic County Conventions_ for the last
„five years;. which -aforesaid distinguished evi
dences 'of his political and_personal standing
has not been in any way increased.by his op
- position to the only candidate the Democrats
had to support for-a county office last fall.

As we have said elsewhere, it is not our
purpose .to mingle in the Senatorial coritrover
sy before the Legi:shilure. It:belongs to a
new party in which we have no pitrt or lot.
But while such is our poSition, we cannot re
frain 'from eipressing our deep regret at the
unscrupulous vindictiveness with which one
of the candidates is assailed in his priVate as
well as public character. This gross viola
tion of all the laws of political warfare mer
its the earnest rebuke of every friend of
justice and fairdealing. No man stands so
high that he may not be blackened by the
reckless calumniator at a moment when se
rious wrong will be inflicted; before reflec
tion and betterknowledge vindicate his fame.
The Juniata Sentinel, a Whig paper, says
of Gen. CAI4ERON, amongst ; other things.
equally malicious and groundless, that he
"has stood at the head of a band of plunder
ers in this State for years, who. have robbed
the. Commonwealth through that Lazar house
of corruption, the public works, and have
grown rich upon the spoils." We cannot feel
that we are doing our duty to a neighbor if
we pass by in.silence such a foul and unjust
aspersion. In this county, where Gen. CAM
ERON . has resided over thirty years, there is
no man whose moral character stands fairer,
or whose word would command more confi
dence. His fortune, whateier it may be, is
the, reward of diligent application to business
—of a-life of unremitting toil and untiring
perseverence. In saying this, : we but say
what nine-tenths of the people- of Dauphin
,county will unreservedly endor§e, • If he has
some enemies here, where is.the man of pos
itive character who has not ?- Who but the
imbecile driveller, he who crosses no man's
path, who neither loves nor hates, requites
nor resents, is the man who has no enemies?
In saying this much for a worthy neighbor
against whom the flood-gates of calumny are
thrown-wide open on every side-by heartless
rivals, ,seeking to profit by his overthrow, by
venal,-cormorants, panting for black mail, and
by, embittered- partisans, whose ambitious
schemes he may have thwarted, we perform
but a simple act of-justice, ever due from the
candid to the wronged and perseCuted. , We
conclude with the following article from the
Huntingdon Globe, which does Gen. CAME
RON no more than justice :
[The article appeared in the Globe of last
, We may be allowed to add, that when the
new party took possession of the government
they gave out that. in, the distribution of offi
ces no' reference would be had to the former
political associations of men.' Thus far the
fates ,have been marvellously propitious to
former Whigsos no, others have been placed
in a single impOrtatit position: The last nost
to, bestow is the Senatorship., A .Demof...lat
Was nominated. The result will be "seen.—
His treatment thus far have ,been Certainly_
peculiar, to say the least. We wonder Wheth
er he would have been so roughly handled
had he been a, Whig.
From the Harrisburg Democratic Union
By a joint resolution, which passed both
branches of the legislature on the 13th inst.,
a committee was appointed for the purpose of
investigating certain charges made in relation
to the bribing of members to vote for particu
lar persons for United States Senator. We
supposed at the time, the intention was to
defeat the election of GeN CAMERON, and
pessibly it may have,operated so far as to in
duce an adjournment - of the election. So
flinch has been said about the Middletown'
Bank, and the use of its notes to effect par.
ticular legislation, as well as other objects,
that it was not at all surprising, in a contest
where the General was a conspicuous actor,
that the allegation should he repeated often
enough to give it the semblance of reality,
and that a committee shouldbe app9iitted to
lf, however, this. was the object, so far as
we have been enabled to aseertain.thefacts,
it has proved a failure. • Not a tittle of evi : .
dente has been elicited implicationg
CAMERON in any transaction ,that even bears
the slightest imputation of
parties, we•believe, the evidence
and lite public will be - made acquaintettwith
the whole matter in due time, but thus far;
the notes of the Middletown Bank:haveleen
more talked about that fingered.
We have thought proper to state these facts;
not because we desire to Mix up in this con
troversy, but because we. believe every maxi
in the community has a right to a - public vin
dication from the effect of .charges in _which
there is no truth. This we sbould'dO to the

red to maintain the moral force given to that
party, by the. allegation that -the, minority
was bound .by • the will of the majority, the

THE OHIO WHEAT CROP.—The Trumbull
Democrat remarks that the farmers in that
region of country. say that the wheat crop
sowed last fall looks exceedingly- well, at the
present time, and . the prospect °Ea good crop
is very flattering. The farmers in Lawrence
county, according to the Journal, report sim
ilar news in relation to the crops there.—
The fall of snow is very opportune for this
crop, and it is providential that the fall
grows deeper and more serviceable as.you
advance into the great wheat-growing sec
tions. The whole•-crop in the West and
Northwest is, now comfortably clothed with
its winter : covering, and everything bids fair
to assure us ,of a bountiful'yield.
