.The," . ..Toninel,". and ITS Consistency.
We have at last succeeded waking up
the hypocritical addle-heads of the llienting
don Journal, and promise to keep them awake
for some time. To show the . consistency of
the Journal we will give a fell/ extracts from
Betore the - late General eleCtion the .I:our

.thefollow.ing words :
• 'its it not brit' a plan for - office hiinters to

decl:th'eir grasp ? Is it not a secret. as'socia
tion' avowedly for political purposes, AND
TX-h.REPO-RD WORSE THAN ANY OF THE SE
CRET ASSOCX,ATIO,NS IN THEM WORST DAYS'?"
After the result of the — election became
known we find the following in tile:Journal:
"We have the proud gratification of an
nouncing to our friends a glorious triumph of
American (Know Nothing) principles thro%
With the.permission of the hiznimal of the
Journal, We will state how it happened that
he got himself into such a split :stick. He
was very anxious to be with the big crowd of
his party, but his: ears being in the tray he
- could not see to the right and left at the same
time, so he informed his friends in, Shirleys
bUrg that as:soon as he could discover which'
faction of his .party was the strongeSt the
Journal would speak out in favor of the most
nurrierons, faction. As the Whig party had
..been in the majority in the county for years,
n old,liner suggested to the hanimal that it
must continue so, and straightway he gives
his opinion of Know Nothingism as quoted
above. But the result of the election showed
that the Whig party was no where, and pres
to, change ! the Journal was the organ of "a
secret association avoyedly for political purpo
ses, and therefore . Wo.B.SE, - than any' .of the
secret associations in their WORST days."
But again. In the Journal of last weeCive .
find the' following truly rich .moisel of the
Journal's hypocricy, to say nothing of its on
sistency: - -Speaking of the Know Not hity , s'
"supple jack" refusing to,.acknowlrdge the'
Globe the organ of his party, the Journal says:
"Such being the case, we deem it superflu
ous to notice anything which it (the
might see- proper, to say, if We did not think
it to he a duty we owe to the great and glori
ous Whig party, the principles of which we
hold dearer than life; and to whose interests
we would be willing to sacrifice our.all !"
Is the "great and glorious Whig . part)"
and Know Nothingisrri one 'in principles as
the great ;Whig, patty "used to was'!" Have
the old line Whigs of Huntingdon county who
refuse to join "a secret association Worse than
any of - the secret associations in their worst
days," got an organ in the county ? That is
the question for the Journal and , the Whigs
Some few individuals, including the
addle-headed editors 'of the Huntingdon Jour

for the bigoted leaders of the Know Nothing
• Order, have lately been very industriously
engaged in circulating - that we-are a Catholic.
We can inform all who have any desire to
kricrw, that we never have been a Catholic—
neither are we a hypocritical professor in any
other church. Can the addle-heads of the

PAOPESSIONS , yEastrs .PaAcTrce.—Since
the . state government - passed in to the hands
of the anomalous .party now in power, we
have quietly watched the Course •of events
without, thus far, seeing. the fulfilment of
any of the promises made previous , to the
election. . Know-Nothings seeking office are
entirely different from know-nothings in of
fice. Before the election they were eloquent
in depicting existing' evils and promising
effectual remedies. Among the leading
measures to which they pledged-themselves,
arid certainly the most important, Were the
sale of the pnblic improvements anti the ab
olition of the canal-board.. In addition to
these.the time of naturalization was 'to be
extended, politico-religious association's over
thrown, the requirements of the conotitution
strictly obeyed; and economy and reeerm in
troduced into every department of the gov- .
ernmene. Taking them at their word, the
voters of the state, by - e n unprecedented ma
jority, testified their approbation of the'
principles thus distinctly put forth.
Under these obligations the present legis
lature assembled and the new administration
took up the reins of power. After a lapse of
more than two months , nothing has been
done evincing a serious intention of putting
in practical form a single - measure to which
they staml.pledged before the world. - Their
promised economy and reform • have been
exemplified in numerous adjournments, trav
elling toward all points of the compass, un
less. waste of time, and providine , for an ex
tra session.. Serious duties, anti, important
legislation have been almost entirely neglec
ted-under frivolous pretexts or-A. reckless .dis
regard of even seeming excuses.
Are this trifling and• inaction to continue
to the - end I Was - the programme of the
campaign, - solemnly presented to the people
before the last election, intended' to end in a
farce at the expense of their disappointed
hopes and depleted treasury ? Is the history
of the present Legislature Co continue to its
close what it is up to the present time--a
history of broken Prothises, unredeemed
pledges, neglect - of constitutional duty, child
ish travelling and unnecessary expenditures?
Should it turn out thus, it will be consoling to
reflect that there will .not be another 'like it
during the present century.-
e Notwithstanding the worst is to be appre
hended from past indications, there are some
among' their,confiding constituents who'still
hope for. better Things—that reflection and an
awakened sense of duty will torn their rep-,
resentatives from a career of folly to a labo
rious discharge of their official obligations.—
We ebnfrss we see but little ground for such
a.lope. Suspicious movements already por
tend that no fair and effectual steps will be ta
ken to carry out
,any salutary measure, or
Any of the measures promised before the
election. Especially' is, this the Case in re
tard to the. momentous movement for the
sale of the piiblic works, the promise of
which carried away more democratic coon
ties and democratic voters to swell the dorni- I
nant majority than all other causes combified.
Bills for selling the different divisions will
probably pass, hampered with terms and
conditions to defeat their operation; specious
ly framed to be a seeming compliance with
an unqualified pledge. But that any provis
ion will be made intended in good faith to
effect the sale, there is little reason to bed
And - so it is with all their promises and
their dealings with all the public interests.
Finesse, fol:y and chicane are in the ascend
ant, and duplicity and• recklessness the order
of the day. Thebusiness to which they ad
dress themselves most earnestly is the man
ufacture of banks, thus shoWing a wonderful
perspicacity in discovering the most potent
method of doing evil within their reach, and
an equal wonderful proclivity to its exercise.
Without the slightest pretence of necessity
the State is threatened with a litter of these
currency *corrupters more numerous than
that stifled by Simon Snyder, Even the so
nility of the Senate, from whose long expe
rience better things were looked for, urges
the increase of our bank-capital on the ground
that other states have more than we have,
thus putting to a base use the very reason
why we have a - sounder currency and less
monetary difficulties than - they. We shall
have more to say hereafter.—llarrisburg-
Extract of a letter dated H arrisburg March
The House holds afternoon sessions daily
—evincing at least a show of doing business
—but lam sorry to say, it ends there. Al
though the legislature has, been in session
about two months and a half—that body has
just posse(' three public bills—a state of
thinvs which I will venture to say is without
a paralell in the history of Pennsylvania
legislation.—At the present rate of doing
business by the legislature, it will take that
body till next October, to finish the public
business. So much for the ever to be re
membered legislature of Pennsylvania far
the year 1855. But after all, the members
ate not td blame. the fault lies at the doors
of the people who sent them here. They
came here fresh from the ranks of the people,
as professed Know-Nothings, and most admi
rably are they fulfilling their high calling,—
The people are at fault in this instance, and
it is for them to apply the remedy.
It is a well known fact that whilst the ReV.
STEPHEN MILLER, editor .of the .Harrisburg
Telegraph, boasts of ministering to the spir
itual wants of four hundred and forty-four
communicants, and affects publicly to be hor
ror stricken at the dangerous tendencies of
Catholicism and foreign influence, privately - ,
among intimate friends, he laughs in his
sleeve at the cities who obey his nefarious
behests. He has frequently acknowledged,
with a monky-like grin on his saintly coun
tenance, that "Catholics were as good citi
zens and as republican in feeling as any oth
er class of professing christians ;" yet, for
the sake of power and plunder—for the sake
of being recognized as one of the "meek and
lowly," he would persecute with fiend-like
ferocity, poor, innocent men, women and
children, and gloat over the misfortunes and
ignorance of his fellow-man. May God in
