It is evident from the article under the cap
tion "The Street Regulators Again" in the
last American that the writer thereof is in
an uneasy position. He handles the subject
of controversy and would convey to the pub
lic mind the idea that he haddelved the facts
of the case, exposed and fairly commented
on the same. His article is little else than a
cunningly devised fable, misrepresenting the
facts, and calculated to produce in the reader
a wrong impression of the transaction. We
proceed to examine his blustering.
.143 says the Globe has been in "great tribu
lation, for weeks past, on account of a mat
"ter of but small concern to its readers."—
Ever sine the advent of Know-Nothingism
we have strenuously opposed its spread and
condemned its unholy principles, as our rea
ders will attest; a majority of whom endorse
our position. We have read and published
instances of its proscription which occurred
throughout the country ; now, we have an
example at home which fully illustrates that
particular principle of the sect. - This princi
ple and its illustrative example is interesting
to the readers of the Globe, because it occurs
at home, where each can, for himself,• exam
ine the facts. Probably if the allegation of
tribulation was made toward the writer of
the _American, the end of truth would be bet
ter served. A careful examination of the
whole of the article in question would lead
to such a conviction.
The writer says "Mr. BLACK did not want
the appointment" and Mr. MILLER. has all his
time otherwise taken up.. "This being the
case, at the next meeting the veto on said
resolution was duly re-considered, and an
election was gone into which resulted in the
choice of JAMES STEEL, Esq., P. C. SWOOPE
and J. F. RAMEY ." Who prevaricates now?
Neither Mr. BLACK nor Mr. MILLER. declined
serving as Regulators. The former expressed
an indifference a's to whether he was re-elec
ted or not for reason of the meagre wages—
one dollar per day—and who would not in
these days of high prices Either pf the
gentlemen, however, would, had they been
called on, discharged the duties of the office.

Thus the record stands, which every citi
zen has a right to, and can examine if he de
sires. Nov prithee Mr. writer where is that
"resolution" on which you built your hopes.
We have searched the minutes of the Board
in vain for it and concluded that it was only
ait imera of your excited brain. In pursu
ance of the ordinance passed 10th Nov. 1800,
an extract from which was published in out
issue of the 4th ultimo, the present board of
Borough Fathers, on the Bth of May last, as
will appear from the minutes published above,
elected JACOB MILLER, DAVID BLACK. and
J. SIMPSON AFRICA, Regulators. They were
duly, LEGALLY elected in the presence of the
last named which would be sufficient notice
to him. The others were informed of their
election by members of the board. "Such
are the PLAIN and simple facts of the case"
as appear by the Journal.
We are further enlightened : 'And now
" for the Globe's fabrications:" it is asserted
" that the above action was prompted by a
"proscriptive spirit. The plain unvarnished
" fact negative this idea." Have you any sense
of truth 1 You knew sir, when penning
those sentences that you were falsifying.—
When the election of Regulators, May Bth,
became generally known, several gentlemen,
members of the Know Nothing Order de
nounced the action of the "Fathers" as con
demnable, and allectged that they had viola
ted their obligations in electing persons
who were not members of the Order. This
announcement coming from persons of high
authority in the patty produced in some of
the members of Borough Council not a little
trepidation. Among, and one of this num-
ber was John A. Nash
of the American. He stated to another
member of the board, that- this matter (the
election of Messrs MILLER, BLACK and Ar
nrcA,) had been discussed and objected to,
by the members of the Order, and that cer
tain gentlemen whom we can name, if neces
sary, had made objections, and that thre- ts
were made to bring a charge against the
Burgesses and Town Council in the "Order"
unless that election of Regulators was revo
ked; that he John A. Nash, was afraid that,
that would be done, and might give them
trouble and urged this member to vote for
the reconsideration of the election. In fear of
such charge the reconsideration of May 25th
was had, for it was distinctly stated in the
Council room by a member of the board
(whose name we can give when necessary)
that the objections to the Regulators they had
elected. were that they were not members of
the Order. This was talked about, was un
derstood by every member present, and We
assert was the reason why the reconsidera
tion was had. This statement, Mr. writer,
you can not, and in the face of truth you DARE
NOT deny. If this is not proscription we
know not what else to term it, and we pro
nounce you guilty of wilful premeditated
"The appointment DEJACOB MILLER, Esq.,
"Treasurer is another evidence of the falsity
"of the Globe charge." Mr. MILLER al
"though an excellent man in any station has
"all his time taken up in the service of the
"Broad Top Company as its Treasurer and
"Secretary." Then if his time is too much
occupied to serve - as regulator why burden
him with the office of Treasurer of the bor
ough of Huntingdon? Because his election
on May Bth was legal and as he can be re
moved for misconduct only his election could
not be revoked.
To excuse the board for the removal of the
third Regulator, Mr. Africa, the American's
writer produces the same argument used in
a former article on the same subject, that it
is incompatible for a member of the Council
to serve as Regulator. This we exploded
two weeks ago. His legal objection is con- -
trary to the custom for half a century. In
1807, JOHN BLAIR, Esq.—one of the Assistant
Burgesses- 7 occupying the same position—
was elected a Regulator. In 1808, ANDREW
HENDERSON, Esq., Assistant Burgess and
JoEN MCCABE, a Councilman, were elected;
in 1810, the latter named, still a Councilman,
was elected; so also in 1811, 1815 and 1816.
Wy,LIADt STEEL, Esq.,who was an Assistant
Burgess for 1824, '25 and '26, was elected
and served as Regulator during the same
years. HENRY MILLER, Chief Burgess in
1825 served in the same office. We could
cite instances of the kind down to the pres
ent time but our space does not allow it nor
the effectual refutation of the sagacious wri
ter's objection demand it. If any one has
doubts he can have them allayed by an ex
amination of the record which does not lie.
The remaining part of the article in the
American is foreign to, the question and it is
not necessary that we should answer it.—
It consists of a cowardly insinuation against
citizens of this borough- Now readers of the
Globe we have given a fair, unrefutable
statement of this case, and may wa ask
what motive prompted this action ?
Facts and an unprejudiced public answer :
The proscription of the Know Nothing Order.
In this petty transaction, which is dishonor
able to the parties concerned, is a fair sam
ple of the proscription of a party which, if it
could gain a permanent ascendency in our
country, would prevent the election to offices
of any, except such as are sworn to lie and
act dissembler. True the Know Nothing
party contains many honest and intelligent
men for whom we have a high regard; but
we are sorry to see thein become the dupes
and follow in the wake of corrupt and de
signing political tricksters.
From the Chicago• Times.
Cruelty of Abolitionism.
A Mr. Henry, of Virginia , arrived in Pitts
burg with a number o negroes,on his way to
Ohio, where he proposed to purchase them
homes, and put them in a way-to support
themselves comfortably. While in Pius
burg the poor negroes wore induced by the
abolitionists to believe that Mr. Henry bad
an intention to keep them as slaves, and they
not only abandoned him, but have become
scattered over the northern parts of Pennsyl
vania and Ohio. Mr. Henry made no effort
to recapture them, as by their own act they
had relieved him of an arduous task, impos
ed on him by the will of a deceased friend,
who ordered that upon his death his slaves
be taken to Ohio, be there manumitted, and
each of them provided with a good comfort
able home, to be paid for out of his estate,-
By the laws of Virginia slaves cannot be
manumitted and remain in that State, and it
was while these poor Africans were on their
way to receive the bounties of their deceased
master the abolitionists stepped in and defeat
ed all the kindness. The abolition press and
clergy are exaulting over the successful
"robbery of the slaveolder." Alas! it was
the negroes, and not the Virginian, who had
been robbed. The estate retains the price
which would have been paid for their farms
and habitations, and the negroes are turned
louse upon the world, with no hand to aid or
encourage them. Experience has shown
that an escaped slave, or a suffering, starving,
perishing negro, can hope for but little actu
al help from the abolitionists. They will
help to steal him from his master, and that
done will let him perish by the road-side for
want of bread. For all the suffering and
want to which these poor AfriCans may be
subjected the sentimental liberty-mongers,
and cracked-brained zealots who deal out
condemnation to all who would not make
war upon the South, will be held - responsible
before a just God. ' This case is a very fair
example of the real charity abolitionism is
capable of dispensing,
