If we have not made frequent or •special
notice of-the Whig candidates for County offi

" knew their own personal merits would speak
louder for them than any terms of praise we
could employ. Messrs. JOBN D. G,CiRGAS,

our borough. • When we say they sustain the
very highest character for honesty, integrity,
uprightness and excellence as citizens, we only
Say that which every man in Carlisle, of either
party, will confirm:— There can be no mistake
made in putting such •men in ,places, of trust,

Tux STATE Fain at Pittsburg was attended
by an immense conoourso of persona: The
account° state that from thirty to fifty thou
sand spectators visited the exhibition daily.—
The ears of the Pennsylvania Railroad running
to t the grounds were all densely thronged, as
were also omnibuses, and all other vehicles.
It seemed a holiday in:Pittsburg, the whole
population .baving turned out for enjoyment.
Every avenue fa the Fair. was crowded from
morning till night, and the Fairfpresentcd one
dense mass of well-dressed men, women and
children. The number of strangers in Patel
burg was immense, and was, in fact limited
only by the meansof getting there. The ma
jority were from Western Pennsylvania and
the eastern counties of Ohio, comparatively
few being from east of the mountains. The
present exhibition exceeded the Ohio Fair in
all except cattle, an exception not very Credit

A determined and united effort to.eleot it can

boasted and shouted over their victory at the
last "Presidential election- and have almost
forced themselves to believe that the Whig
party can never successfully rally again.—
Drunken with the glory of their success, they
become oblivious of the fact that their power
consisted alone in their unity ;, and in their
reckless scramble for the spoils they have en- ,
gendered• animosities and- heart bui.nings '
among themselves, which has resulted in sub
dividing and distracting them to such an extent
that a present perfect organization among them
Gov: Mumma has rendered himself odious to
thousands by his injudicious interferenoo in
appointments and other acts,—tho frauds on
the Portage Rail Road and the oppression 'of
poor laborers have aroused deep public indig-,
nation—the squandering of the public money
on our rail roads and canals has reached such
an alarming height that men of all parties feel
the necessity of aft effectual check by the
speedy sale of those unprofitable improve
ments. These considerations are certainly not
calculated to strengthen the party to which
they belong, or to induceover-burthened tax
payers to vote for their candidates. Our op
ponents aro distracted and divided in almost
every State,—and in Pennsylvania. they are
unable to rally their forces on a ticket that ex
cites no feeling except that of indignation and
contempt fur such men as J. Porter Briwley,
their besotted candidate for Surveyor General,
or their Auditor General, Ephraim Banks, who
is proved to haio played'into-the hands ef—the
speculators on the Portage Rail Road.
Lot us therefore arouse—take counsel to

supineness can alone defeat us. Lot none be

been ttirribly destinctive, little less In foot
than entire annihilation to us, if it had not

pect the Very 'labored production to bo the
work of some now occupant of the tripod, or
in plainer langdage, the grist of some now and
indiistrious miller wha:haa - lately - got Into the
business of grinding out editorials. The blue-
Zra it we think would bear out our suspi
oions, if, "editorial courtesy" allowed us to
pursue the inquiry. For instance, the editor
of the Volunteer himself would not so blunder
ingly__have_ accounted for- Mr. Shearer's ab
sence from the August Court by saying that
he was out among his friends trying to secure
the nomination far District Attorney, when in
fact he had been nominated two weeks before
But as we are now a reformcdadvecato of "edi
torial courtesy" ourself, we will endeavor to
avoid any more breaches of that sort, especi
ally in connexion with our very sensitive
We shall not waste much of ' either * time or
space in meeting this lame and impotent as
sault. We shall not seriously urgue with the
author whether our publishing a Coramunica-
tion in which a democrat spoke pretty freely
his opinion of a democratic , candidate, destroys
our claim to the charact e rof "a gentleman"
or not. We shall not engage in any such
ocoeksivoly puerile controversy as that. This
thing of putting us down as "no gentleman"
—of heaping.opprobious epithets-upon us--of
holding us up as, a falsifier, -slanderer and
calumniator—has boon pursued by the . Volun
teer for years, and probably will be for many
years to come. The community, who can
compare our papers, know how to estimate
such charges. Wo haie survived such attacks,
and expect to live awhile longer without seri
ous injury from them. It is laughable to
- hear the-- Volunteer - talk about 't edirorial
'courtesy,"—a paper which is notorious forits
ferocious bullyism, manifested by defamation
and abueo of every man mho does not succumb
to the selfish crew of politicians whose willing
organ ft is. Such a paper to charge us with
violation of editorial Courtesy 1 It would bo
ridiculous if it did not' excite indignation.
The Volunteer endeavors to make it appear
that our articles in favor of Mr. Penrose for
District 'Attorney were the products of an
interested person by charging Mr. Penrose with
beihg virtually the editor of the 'Jerald. Mr.
Penroeelir alleged to bo a constant writer, for
our - paper, - nnd it ie oven said we have scaree!y
issued a copy of the Herald for years without
kr. Penrose having Erst reviewed its contents I
Tbis ia nava indeed! A more unfounded
statement could ' scarcely Lave been uttered.
We deny it,.not only to remove the imputation
of interest, but that it would bo rank injustice
to make our talented friend Penrose account-
able for the slight editorial ability whici has
been diiplayecl in our columns. There is not
a grain of truth, we may simply say, in the
allegation that he has for years edited our
, But the heaviest denunciation of the Volun
eer is visited upon us banns° we admitted
nto our columns a communication in which
the intellectual character of its ,pet candidate,
Shearer, was rather severely shown up.
Now we did not
,publish that communication
with any vindictive feeling toward Mr. Shearer.
In our editorial notices of him, we confined
ourselves strictly to the consideration of his
fitness and qualifications for the office for which
he is nominated. Wo maintain that he has
not the legal experience to qualify him for the
duties of District Attorney, and as we sin
cerely hold that opinion, no mawkish feeling
shall prevent us expressing it. Asa proof of
his want of qualification we point to the
fact that he has been but little over a year at
the Bar, and that his practice has 'been too
limited to give him the required legal experi
ante. . We. have made no attacks upon his
personal character, for wo have no unkind
feeling toward him. But the ciontmuniesttilon
d mitt tiT wse written by a democrat—it
was a democrat's)Opinion of a democratic candi
date, which wo published without comment.
It was no whig onslaught—it was wiittenhy
a democrat who stands na high in the party
ranks as the editor of tho Volunteer himself.
This communication showed that the democrats
were not satisfied with Hr. Shearer's notniation
and that they did not believe him tho mail for
the place-- It may suit the Volunteer to do
tofnce this communication as blaoliguardish,
but we suspect it is fhb fact that democrats
thus freely express their opinion of the weak-
ness and unfitness of their own candidate,
which makes the Volunteer clique feel it so
- Alter berating us for its publication, the
Volunteer opens a tirade of foul-mouthed abuse
against a worthy young democratic member of
the Bar, whoin it unjustly accuses of the
authorship. This young attorney was Mr.
Shearer's uninuniessful competitor for the no
minatien, and the ferocious fury with which
they have pounced upon him shows how say?
agely.they gloat over their triumph, and how
eager they were to find an opportunity of
manifesting that malignant hate which they
have all along felt but, until now concealed.
They show their true character in this. They
have au intense feeling of sympathy for 'poor"
Mr. Shearer, but his rival, who is equally
poor, and who had not the aid of a powerful
political clique to befriend him, they would
crush/end griud - to the dust. We 'aro much
mistaken if' they do. not find, that-the. People
understand their hypocrisy, and will , gi; , e it a
signal rebuke at the ballot.box.
SALE OF TIIE PUBLIC WORREI.
There is oviden'tly a strong feeling over the
State in flivor of the Salo of the f'ublio Works,
as the only means of putting a stop to the
fraud and corruption so characteristic of their
administration. Not only is the Whig press
unanimous upon the subject,;-but iu Berke,
Westmoreland, and ono or two other Locofooo
counties, resolutions favorable, to their sale
have been atitiptod by Locofooo Conventions.
Still tho proposition is far from being settled,
as the entire patronage of the Canal Board,
with the 'Democratic Unio,i,' 'Peanaylvapian,'
''Bedford Gazette,' and other leading Locofooo
papers, aro violently opposing tho movement,
and may secoeed in accemplishing their ends

Dili.. DIAROVS MANIFESTO
• This important State paper, by Secretary
Marcy in answer to ilulseman, the Austrian
Minister at Washington, has at last made its
appearance, and is of most formidable length,
'The conclusions which the President has ar
rived at are that Koszta, when seized and im
prisoned, was arrested within the nationality
of the United States, and they had therefore
the right, if they chose to exorcise it; to ex
tend their protection to him ; that from inter
national law—the only law which can bo right
fully appealed to for rules of notion in this
case—Austria could darivo no authority to ob
struct or interfere with the United States in
the exercise of this right, in effecting the libe
ration of Beszta ; and that Captain Ingrahatn's
interposition for hie release was, under the
peculiar and extraordinary oiraumstanees of
the case, right and proper. Being convinced
that the seizure and imprisonment of Koszta
wore illegal and unjustifiablb, the President
will also decline to give his Consent to his de-
livery to the* Consul General of Austria at
Smyrna, but, on the contrary, expects the Em
peror of Austria will take the proper measures
to return Koezta to the same condition he was
in before he was • seized in the streets of
THE MESILLA VALLEY.
A special despatch from Washington, inti
mates that a new complication in the Mesh
Valley difficulty has arisen threatening the 1 ,, -
terruptlon of pacific relations with Me . co.—
No dates aro given—no account of the manner
in which this intelligence reached Washington
—and nu details of fact beyond the mere state
ment that: the difficulty referred to occurred
between tho "opposing forces" in the disputed
territory. In the absence of fuller informa-
tion, says the North American, we should say
this news appears to be of rather a doubtful
character. Advices had been received, ,re
cently, from Santa Fe, with dates to Septem
ber Ist, at which time Governor Merriwothor
and General Garland had just arrived, the lat
ter being occupied in visiting the different mi
litary posts ; and not n word said of any pre
parations on his part to despatch troops to
Mosilla Valley, which, it will be remembered,
is a good many days' march below Santa Fe.
The trouble is to imagine where thb opposing
troops came from ; and, if sent by General
Garland, to account for our hearing from them

townsman, Dr. J. J. illvEns, now President of
the Board of Health, of that city. The foots
given'in the report seem to be received with
great satisfaction by the press there. The
Pittsburg Daily Union, in noticing the report,
"It contains many valuable statistics, and
.oces anew and interesting theory in rela
tion to the salubrity of our smoky atmosphere,
which is not only plausible, but well attested
by facts. The fact that persons engaged in
coaling in the charcoal furnace regions are
seldom afflicted with consumption, is one of
common observation. We had heard this
remarkable circumstance frequently attested
long before any theory had been proposed to
explain it. And we aro glad to find that the
results of scientific investigation are in this
instance in harmony with common belief. The
new theory _appears to have the, first great
requisite of any principle—undoubted facts to
support it, and upon those it has been elevated
to the beauty of a scientific structure. We
trust the future labors of Dr. Myers, who is
one of our most useful citizens, will db much'
to establish an opinion abroad favorable to the
health of our city, and thus induce strangers
to make it their home• Should he succeed in
establishing to their conviction as he has to
ours, that our much abused sooty atmosphere,
like the occasional frown of adversity, is in
reality a blessing, he will deserve the thanks
of the community."
Mit. Enacts :--I happened to call on Prof.
Wednesday, 28th inst., when I willingly con
sented to spend the day at his polite request,
it being the day, upon which the Summer ties
_Won of his school terminated and the pupils
I listened with .pleasure to the promptness
and accuracy of the answers given to the va ,
rious, and often difficult questions in the dif
ferent branthes, and was surprised to witness
the anxiety manifested among the pupils to
acquit themselves creditably. .The questions
Were propounded promiscuously and I watched
closely to discover if there had been any sys
tematic drilling prior to the day, but I cod
isoover none. So much of this is practised
by teachers in our many Institutions, that
many persons regard Examinations as mere
farces, end are reluctant to attend them.—
Upon enquiring from 11. Ir. Burns: ho informed
mo he never pursued that eysteni; but gives
his pupils a strict, thorough examination,
without any design for display, sa as to ac
quaint all present with the talents and various
attainments of his pupils, in a truthful man
ner. Such, certainly, is the proper method,
and through It, on that day, his pupileevinoed
.quito as creditable knowledge of their studios
as many I have witnessed who had undergone
a month's drilling.for the occasibn„ die and
his assistants must have labored aliduottely
during the session to have effected 114 advance
ment exhibited. •
Mr. Burns, from his untiring perseverance
cud diligence, has succeeded in building up a
school of sound reputation. Ills pupils are
generally from the cities, many of wheat have
been with him several successive sessions, at
once showing the approbation of hic i patrons
of their improvement under his judidipus man
agement. After having erected very excellent
buildings, and devoted time, energy and capi
tal to the establishment of the school, besides
'having received many high encomiums from
its patrons, (many being among the most in.
telligont citizens of the State,) it is surprising
that the citizens of the neighborhood and
County, in which it is looked, do not avail
themselves of the excellent advantages afford
ed. "If they will give' other Institutions a com
parative examination, they will find this equal
to any. Lot them but patronize this-Institu-
Hen ; they may be assured their sons will ad
vance in intellectual. intirovement, :: besidite
economize in expenditures which result from
sending them to distant schools.
