Dr. McCulloch and Know-Nothingism
To the Editor of the Globe :
The charge" has been brought against me
of Know Nothingism, and I wish through
your paper to make a plain statement of the
muter. About fifteen or sixteen months ago
I was induced to attend a Know Nothing
Council in Washington, and as far as one
meeting went was so far initiated, but to the
best of my own recollection and belief, have
never attended a meeting since, and have
now no connection or sympathy with the or
ear, and most certainly never intend to have.
Being called upon-almost daily for papers
containing the exposition of Know Nothing
ism made by THOMAS MAHAFFEY, Of Clear
field county, which appeared in the Globe
some time ago, we have agreed to republish
it in our . present cumber. The scores of per
sons who have left the secret order "in every
section of our county all agree that the Ma
haffey expose is correct to the letter. It can
therefore be relied upon as giving a true idea
of the object and workings of this.cunningly
devised oath bound political imposture.
The neighbors of Mr. MAHAFFEY with one
accord bear testimony to his high character
and moral worth in the community in which
he lives. The Rev.T'ansLEY B. Small, Meth
odist Episcopal Minister in charge of the
Glen Hope Circuit, Clearfield county, since
the exposure was first published, assisted in
conducting several religious meetings in our
county. He was frequently interrogated
about Mr. Malaaffey's character and standing
amongst his neighbors. Mr. SMITH'S inva
riable reply was—"as a man and a christian
we have no one in our church more worth)
than THOMAS MAHAFFEY. For integrity,
truth and veracity, benevolence and, chris
tian deportment, his character is unexcep
tionable. He is highly esteemed amongst
his neighbors. •
Our merchants are now opening out their
new goods. Always consult the columns of
the Globe if yqp want to get good Goods at
fair prices. D. P. Gwin, J. & VV. Saxton,
Benj. Jacobs, Cunningham & Dun, and Col.
Geo. Gwin, advertise that the people may
know where to get bargains. Give them a
call and you will not leave disappointed: -

The Huntingdon Journal and the Whig
The course pursued by the Huntingdon,
Journal has so .completely disgusted every
honorable man in the Whig patty that it is no
longer regarded by them as even occupying a
respectable position as an organ of the patent
medicine manufacturers. it claimes to be
the organ of the Whig party—and in its next
issue it claims,f;o-be the acknowledged organ
of the Know Nothing party,—with the lead-
ers of which the editors - are at this time hav
ing secret correspondence, the better to do
the bidding of the conspirators in misleading
the Wigs who are reluctant to belive that
their once able organ has been bought for a
price to assist in crushing 'out of existence
the principles they have worshiped and con
tended for in many a hard fought battle.
Look at the list of Whigs signed
. to a pa
per in another column—many- of them with
whom we have had an acquaintance for sev
eral years, we know to be among the Most
respectable citizens and most prominent lead
ing Whigs in the county. They, with hun
dreds of others in the county, are now hav
ing- their eyes opened by the Arnold-like
course of the Huntingdon Journal. They
speak like men—and will act like men. They
will no longer be dictated to by the "corrupt
office hunters" in the Know Nothing party,
through the editorial columns of the-Journal.
We have said they will act like men—yes,—
when the 2d Tuesday of October comes they
will be found foremost in the fight for Mean.,
LOCH and HOFIIIS, and the whole ticket put
in nomination by the opponents of Abolition-
The honest yeomanry of Huntingdon and
Blair should know the financial ability of
those who would represent them at this
Will or dare J. H. Wintrode attempt to de
ny that a large sum of money was paid to the
conferees of Huntingdon county the evening
that Col.• A White was nominated as the
Whig candidate for Senator ?
Will that champion of Know Nothingism,
Dr. J. H. Wintrode, deny that some time pre
vious to the Whig County Convention of
1853, he said to a friend that "A. White was
said to be liberal with his money—and that
he knew there was vioney about ?" Dare he
deny that one'orhis Conferees 'immediately
after being by him, the said Doctor, he went
to "Hemlock" to see, and did see that liberal
gentlemanly young Col.?
How many Whigs were there in this coun
ty two years ago, who indignantly refused to
vote for Alex. M. White for Senator because
they believed he had bought out Dr. Wintrode
and his conferees ?
How many Whigs are there in this county
now who are bound by an oath to support for
Assembly, - Dr. Win trode, the man who sold
them and the party out to Alex. M. White?
If the buyer was unworthy of your sup

is not true. First—lf he were a Know Noth

the Know Nothing ticket as he is now doing;
and he. would not have opposed the Know

Are You Assessed ?
Our Demoaratic and Whig friends should
examine the assessment lists that are now
up, and if their names should not he found
recorded there, they should make application
to the assessor immediately, or at least TEN
DAYS BEFORE THE ELECTION.
[jr A Democratic editor, in Illinois, an
noyed by the abuse of a Know Nothing con
temporary, effectually stops hie mouth by the
following pointed question :
"How did you feel the first time you took
the sacrament after having taken an oath in a
Know Nothing lodge to virtually lie to eve

Mr. Lewis—Will you please publish in
your paper the following letter and signa
tures from Penn and Walker. The Journal
havibg refused to publish a letter of the same
purport - from West township, we how feel
that the columns of your paper are the only
source left us to communicate our views to
our fellow Whigs throughout the county.
MANY OLD LINE WHIGS
MCCONNELLSTOWN Sept. 19th, 1855.
Messrs. Brewster'and Whittaker: Gentle
men—We the undersigned Whigs of the
townships of Walker, and Penn , would
respectfully inform you that we are amazed
at the course pursued by the organ of our
party, in the present political campaign. We
feel a deep interest in the defeat of that po
litical Inquisition Know,Nothingism, which
is based upon extra judicial oaths, and has
for its professed object, the proscription of our
fellow citizens, on account of their birth
place, and thsi religion• they profess. We ap
prove the action of the late Whig County
Convention, which fully represented our
views in forming with the Democratic party
a Fusion Ticket. The result is a - combined
political effort upon open, avowed and hono
rable terms, that will doubtless save our
county from the impending misrule of an
oath bound political organization.
You will therefore have the candor to
answer the following interrogatories.
Will you support with your paper the Fu
sion ticket which was formed at khe instance,
and with the approval of the Whig party of
Do you purpose giving the Know Noth
ing candidates in our county the support of

Your answers to these questions will ne
cessarily determine our course in regard to

The Democratic and Whig parties, who
abhor secret political cabals, and midnight
conspiracies, have placed in nomination a fn . -
sion ticket to be supported by all freemen in
the county. We shall notice . the candidates
Dr. JOHN McCum.ocx for Assembly, is a
gentleman of character and ability—and for
merly represented this district in Con
gress, to the satisfaction of his constituents.
For a quarter of a century, he has lived in
our midst, and time and acquaintance has
only added to . his reputation as a man and
a citizen. In Politics he has always been
honest; and now, in common with all true
men, repels a political, scheme, which would
bind the consciences of men by fearful and
blasphemous oaths and underhanded strata
gem, to the will and schemes of a few lead
ers. In connexion with Dr. McCuLnocH, the
opposition to know-nothingism will support
DAVID Hontrs, Esq., for Assembly—nomi
nated by our'friends in Blair county. Mr.
HoFms, is also a gentleman of decided abili
ty,—a ripe scholar—and served his country
in the late war with Mexico. ' He was a

Cal. GRAFIIIS MILLER, of this place, for
formerly of Barree township, that land of in
dependent and honest men, is our candidate
for Treasurer. In addition to his acknowl
edged fitness, and superior claiins, all who
have the happiness of his acquaintance, and
they are many, will bear us out in saying
that a more pleasing, courteous, and gentle
manly man does not reside in our county.
JOHN LONG, of Shir]eysburg, our candi
date for Commissioner, is one of nature'sno
blemen. Thoroughly acquainted witlithe de
tails of business, the affairs and interests of
our county, an honester man does not live.
Nor will any be hardy enough to say that he
would not make one of the best County Com
missioners we have ever had.
WILLIAM MCNITE, of Shirley township,
the candidate for Director of the- Poor, is a
gentleman of fine qualifications—a - firm, hon
est, energetic man. No better. officer could
be selected; and besides, the interestsof the
county in thakdepartment demands the elec
tion of a Director on the ground—near the
Poor House, and within immediate reach of
azoauE BELL, for Coroner, is a firm and
energetic son of Barree,—a gentleman of
eharacter 2nd intelligence, and well fitted for
DAVID F. TUSSEY, of Porter, tp., for Audi
tor. A man of the first respectability. For
probity, integrity, and general worth, he has
no superior in this or any other county. He
is intelligent, amply qualified, and deeply in
terested in our county affairs.
This, citizens•of the county, is the ticket
presented to you, in opposition to the ticket
produced by the hidden alchemy of the cor
rupt sharks, who lead the secret order. Its
nomination is not the fruit of midnight
schemes or secret fraud—but the free, open,
and Manly choice of the untrammeled free
men of the county. Give it your undivided
support. The opposition scattered among
you, educated in duplicity, will ask you to
vote their ticket. They hope to succeed on
ly by deceiving outside voters. They have
not strength enough of •their own--and rf .
the opponents of Know Nothingism are but
trot to themselves, a noble victory is certain.
They are opposed to fusion, because, their,
own defeat is written in the word. Why
should any man who is not a member of that
order ally himself with its corrupt purposes 1
