Read the Letter of Gen. Cass
We invite a careful perusal of the able
letter of the veteran Statesman of Michigan,
which we publish to-day. Like every thing
from the pen of Gen. Cass, it is a clear and
explicit exposition of his views, not orily
, with yeference, to. the, heresies of_ Know
Nothingism, but also of the principle of pop
ular sovereignty embraced in the Kansas-Ne
braska bill. '
The ticket nominated by the Democratic
and ,Whig Conventions, has greatly distut bed
the harmony of the dark lantern league.—
In every ,part of the county Whigs and Dem
ocrats have come forward in solid column
'to its support. We have yet to heat of the
first dissenting voice in the ranks of either
of the old and only
_respectable parties, the
influence of , the J6urnal and American with
'old liners' to the contrary nottvithstanding.
The Dark"-Lantern -Ticket
The Conflict in the Know Nothing Coun
cils in. this coenty for place on the . ccunty
ticket is nearly over, and many are the lotig
faces we meet with. There has been sever
al trials to select a ticket—one more and the
agony will be- over. At' the last . Ilia], Dr.
Wintroihe and Geo. Leas were declared the
two highest for - the Legislature. Another
vote will take. place in the Council: , this
week, and next week we expect to be able
to announce the names of ; the successful ap
. Pa' The - building of the Weighlock at
this place . for the use of the Huntingdon and
B. T. R. R. & C.-Company, has been let by
said Company to James Burnes and Ralph
Bogle. The lock - is to be built near the
aqueduct over Stone Creek.
0:7 Know Nothirigism is ashamed of the
inconsistencies it has exhibited, and of the
narrow bigoted policy it has pledged itself
to. -It knows it has fixed itself upon, a plat
form,' which from the dark ages down to this
time, intelligent and high-minded men have
unanimously denounced in all ages._ It
'not to see the beauty atn.l justice of that ter
emt, liberal policy which 'such men. as
Washington, Franklin, Jefferson and Mach . -
son have been the chief exponents of in our
conntry, and which the Democracy alone,
now stands up to defend. It sees, that tried
by every_sound principle of comparison, it
contrasts with DernocriiCy as darkness with
, It has, pledged itself by promises and
oaths to low debasing bigotry,. that the votes
of .bigots and fools might be secured. Tt has
. prOperty - by^ solemn' Contract,
very property concluded at midnight,' of the
'lame class of men of whom the witch hang
ers of Saleni and the Quaker hangers of Bos
tonAvere representatives in their day. It
,has a Separate face' for every.*int of the
compaSs and. a false mask for every sect, par
ty and 'class Of men. It is a drag net, in
which every dishonest politician and discon
tented, office • seeker, who has, sunk of his

bottom of our . political 'Seas. Never' has so
pernicious, foul, ravenous' and wholly., un

DEATH AMONG THE CATTLE .—We under
stand that a mortal disease has recently made
its appearance among the cattle near the
Long Pond, on the mountain, about the con
iunction of the county corners of Columbia,
Splivan,._ and Luzerne, A &demos', who
was one of the party making the discovery,
informs us that about two weeks since, in
one,day, they found twenty seven (lead cattle
in the woods on the mountains The disease
by-which sotnany have met their death, is i
supposed to have originated from some m

The Effect of Know -Nothing Mob Vio-
We perceive in the 'Louisville Times, a
Memorial ; of a large number of .the mer
chants and property holders of that city to'
the Connell y urging - payment for' the destruc
tion of property on the day of election.—
The Memorialists are willing to be taxed, in
order to save the charter of the.city, although
thq had no part or-lot in the ruffianly out
rage against the , _rightStand ' property of citi
zens on that. bloody day. The Council, true
to the injustice of their former acts, unani
mously rejected the proposition. The names'
of the' memorialists are all given, together
With a letter from Judge NICHOLAS, pressing
- the matter on the score of justice.- The Lou
isville Times says "As this subject has
been agood daal talked of our city, we
present it in ftill to our readers. Nor will it
close here. ,Public opinion is slowly but
surely doing the work of justice which the
COuncil has refused; and we doubt not, should
it become neeeesary, that such a public meet
' ing of
. all the good men the -city can be
convened on any evening, as will instruct
our-perverse -Council in their duties to jus
tice, humanity and a decent respect for Pub
' lie opinion. The city has already lost too
largely by mob rule and the folly of the City
Council, for ou: business men to rest - quiet
any longer. We have lost a large per cent of
our population. -Thousands of foreign born
citizens, who would otherwise have made
Louisville their home, are passing by us to
St. Louis, Memphis and Chicago. Hund
reds of our business, houses and dwellings
are vacant, and every day is presenting new
cases of substantial men amongst our foreign
citizens leaving the city. Country mer
chants, in horror at the bloody city, are. pas - -
sing us for Cincinnati and the Eastern mar
kets. Our- business men are losing trade,
our mechanics are almost idle, building has
almost ceased, and a general stagnation'per
vades the city.
These may be unpalatable truths—but
they are truths—forced upon the mind of 431, 7
ery reflecting man in the city. The salva
tion of the city is in JUSTICE I Though it
may be tardy and only partial —for the dead
cannot be brought to lifeyet JUSTICE on
ly can save the city. Our foreign citizens
must be satisfied that there - is some regard
for Life and Property yet in the hearts of the
poople of Louisville, or the grass will yet
grow in our streets.
ALMOST AN ACCIDENT ON THE HUNTING
DON & B. T. RAILROAD.—On Saturday even.
ing last, after the passenger train had passed
up the road, sortie evil disposed person or
persons placed upon the track near Markles
burg, a heavy iron rail. On 016 return of
the train the obstruction was observed by the
brakesman on the passenger car, which was
in front coming down, and the alarm was
given, but not in time to enable the engineer
to stop the trait, until it had passed over the
rail: Fortuniitely the train was not thrown
off the track, the road being perfectly straight
where the obstruction was placed upon it.—
Wc hope the person .or persons who placed
the obstruction upon the. track may be found
out and punished severely. A reward of
$lOO is offered by the Company for his or
their appleher.sion and information which
will lead to his or their conviction; and for
the apprehension and inforrnation which may
lead to the conviction of an - y other person or
persons who shall, hereafter be guilty of_a
violation of the-law, au extract of which we
give for the in formation of all evil disposed

The "Republican Party.''
A call fora Republican convention. to be
held at Pittsburg to-day, to organize a , "Re
publican party" in this State, has been going
the rounds of ,the Whig and Know .Nothing
papers. If -we may judge from' filenames
signed to the'call, we must pronnurice it an
effort to build upn regularly organized Abo
lition party upon the ruins of the; Knew
Nothing - and Whig parties . : John William
son, Esq., 'of this place, is one of the signers
to the call, and every 'body knows how much
love of country prompts hinTin any political
movement he makes. The "Republican
party," it is:intended, shall take the placenf
all'the factions of the day in this State in op- .
position to 'the Democracy, after this 'fall's
campaign—and• to be,undei , the control and

The Liquor Laws.
It is generally known that the anti-License,
or more properly, the Piohibitory Liquor
Law, which goes into effect in this State on
the Ist of October next, coupled with two
other' enactments which have gone into effect
within the past year . , and are unrepealed by
the law of last session, will make an entire

THE YELLOW FEVER AT - NORFOLK AND

by hundreds. •
Broad Top Pic Nic
The pie nic excursion, on the • Broad Top
Rail Road, which had been in contemplation
for several days, came off on Thursday the
30th ult. Ea s ily - in the morning our citizens
and their families,]aden with baskets of the
good things of this life, were seen crowding
to Railroad street 'where five passenger cars
' 'and one truck were waiting to receive them..
' At nine o'clock the buzz and bustle of storing
away baskets and getting seats were over,
and the train, moved off for Marklesbure,
eleven miles'distant, on the Broad Top R. R.
,After a pleasant 'ride of half an hour, it
was announced that we were at "the place."
Then commenced a general promiscuous
march of men, women, boys, girls and soldiers
for "Green Grove" on the farm of Mr. Boyer.
This movement somewhat resembled,
Wolfe's ascent of the heights of Abraham—
every man carried . his own arms and am
munition—and like it success crowned the ef
foi t. Arrived on the ground, a short harangue,
principally respecting the regulations to be
observed, was made by David Snare, Esq.—
After an interval, David Blair, Esq. was cal
led on for a speech. He responded' in a
short address, giving an account of the early
history of the road; and wound up by - slating
in substance, that Gen. Ayres of 'Harrisburg,
deserved to be puffed for puffing the Rai Irbad,
which was fully agreed to, and Gem Ayers
was puffed accordingly., Maj. Campbell
was next called to the stand, and delivered a
short address, , in,his usual happy manner, on
the importance of railroads, and modern im
provements in general.
Next followed John Scott, Esq., in a neat
address, which contained much information
respecting the Broad Top and similar roads,
and wound up with a high and well merited
eulogium, of the present President of the
. Company, and a motion for another general
pie nic and harvest home, to be'- held about
this time next year, near Stonerstown ; in
which all Woodcock Valley and Huntingdon:.
' should be invited to participate,—all of which
was received with applause, and unanimous-
ly agreed to.
Dr. 'Whitrode and S. T. Brown, were sev
erally called on for speeches, but declined.
At half past three, the party took their seats
in the cars 'for Huntingdon, and returned
safely to their homes; each seemingly well
pleased with the festivities of the day. The
turn out and martial music of the Hunting
don Guards added much to the entertainment.
The committee' of arrangements deserve
praise, for the efficieney and courtesy with
which they discharged their duties, and it is
only to be regretted that many of our valley
friends were prevented froth attending by
the arbitrary and selfish conduct of one of
their members. Pic Nic.
Know Nothing Demonstration.
Mr. Entron—Tri pursuance of a public-no
tice given -some time since the Know Noth
ings held a public meeting at this place on
. thecvening.of the 23d ult. As it was a
beautiful evening, it was expecteu -there
i would be a large meeting of the "dark lan
! tern gentry,".--but alas 1 .• the crowd was
small. The evening train brought four or
five-of the white hat gentry from the ancient
i.borough • who put on airs as though they
• thought that they were the "people."—
,About. dark three solitary. individuals made
their-appearance bearing the American flag,
they hoisted at "half mast" upon the
bridge,—after.a few moments consultation
the flag was taken down and placed upon a
;:garden fence, where that-glorious emblem of
;:liberty hung as sul4nly as' if it felt 'the force
.of the insult at being brought out upon so
despicable an occasion, After a little more
private consUltation, an ex-editor of the
:Journal mounted a box—after stammering a
'while as if in search of. an idea, he attempt
ed to give a
_history of the Know Nothing
party. He stated that the party originated in
i• the city of New York,—that there the Angel
Gabriel and others proclaimed the birth of the
Tiew party. The Angel Gabriel ! Good hear
' ens! such an author,—why did he not mention
Ned Buntlin. He spoke of the victories
gained by that party, but seemed to- forget
the riotous proceeding by which those vicio
ries•were gained ; and stopped short of that
point in the history of this ephemeral party
where it commenced to retrograde. He made
an abortive attempt at a very inappropriate
poetical quotation from some ancient bard,
and left the stand. An effort was made to
' applaud him but a majority of - the crowd
seemed to be of a different sentiment.
The next speaker was called - to-the . stand
viva voce—some eight or ten persons joining
in the call. The man; for any thing, then
'mounted the -starid,, he recapitulated in sub
stance what had already been said,--told sev
eral anecdotes on the Irish calculated io
arintse children,—he seemed - to have adopted
all of the proscriptive principles of the par
ty,7—here is one of his , PATRIOTIC REPUBLI
CAN remarks : "We are determined to have
the ballet box, - and will have it if We should
go to'perdition for it." He made a few more
sunilar'antl-demo - crdtic remarks, and left the
stand., . It was. moved that the - thanks of
the Sprirce Creek Council be tendered Mr.
Williamson for his very eloquerrt.remarks by
giving him three cheers. .We now expected
an expression of their: strength—there were
about forty persons
,present = about fifteen.
hats waved in the air and the voices of their
respective owners were all of that crowd
that seemed willing to show that they ap
proved of the anti-Republican -doctrines of
the party. We concluded to take asurvey.
of the crowd, and the result was that .
coVered that abOut two thirds were Demo
crats and old line. Whigs. An effort was
- being; made to find another speaker, when a
gentleman mounted the box announced as
John N. Prowell. "He did not come to
speak ; but was dete7rmined to say *some
thinfr." He held a little rattan in his hand
which he flourished :it the air as if he was at
war with that, element He seemed ata loSs
for something to say,—he.,finally got an idea,
—James Campbell was appointed Postmaster
General and KnoW Nothings were opposod
to CatholiCs being - appointed to office. But
failing to find any thing to say against Jas.
Campbell, either as a man or as Postmaster
General, he gave it up and commenced
searching for another hobby. The crowd
commenced to scatter,. and J. N. Prowell
was soon left to harangue a few of his party
adherents. Thus ended the K. N. demon
stration at Spruce Creek.
