Party Names.
Owing to our absence from the Editorial Chair,
last week, the ticket of the Porter branch of the
Locofoco party was headed " Damontatic Loco
rocs TICIIK," The Anti Porter branch of the
Locofoco party find fault with this, and perhaps
justly too, because we headed their own simply
Locofoco TICKET. " I,Ve will elate, for the satis
faction of all, that it was all right except the " Dem
ocratic;' and this week we have altered the ticket
no as to make it agreeable to our own views, and as
it would have been published last week had we been
at our post. We consider neither of the two fac
tions "Democratic," nor any more entitled to the
name of " Democrats', than to that of " Working
men," under which they battled at the last two gen
eral election. So long as they dub us "reds, "
" Tories," " Coons" &c., they must be content to
be called Loeofocos by us.

Pall Ticket---Duty of our Party--
Partial split in the Locofoco flanks.
We are enabled this week to present a full Ticket
to the Democratic Harrison voter of Huntingdon
county, from Canal Commissioners down to County
Auditor. It is a ticket against which the voice of
objection has not, and cannot, be raised.
The candidates for Canal Commissioners, are all
three of them, gentlemen of sterling worth and
unimpeachable integrity, who can well stand the
Jeffirsonian test MI to honesty and capability.—
They are opposed to Locofocoism in all its phases,
and hold firmly the political principles of the party
that nominated them—though they are men who
are not very extensively known in the political world,
never having practiced the fashionable iniquities of
the day, which give some men notoriety. These
men must certainly be elected over their Locofoco
opponents, every one of whom has been or is now
in some way connected with the present corrupt
State or National Administration, and has his hands
stained with their mat-practices.
The nominee for Congress is too well known to
the people of his district to require commendation
from the hands of any one. His course, in the late
Congress, on the Tariff question alone, is sufficient
to secure his re-election by an increased majority
over his present opponent who is accountable not
only for the sin of Porterism, but is also an out
and-out Locofoco, and consequently bound to go fur
a repeal of the Tariff act—that street anchor of the
hopes and prosperity of the laboring classes of our
country.
The remainder of the Ticket consists of gentle
men well known to most of the citizens of this
county. Tltey are all men whose characters for
honesty and capability will bear the strictest ecru-
City, and into whose hands the interests of our coun
try may be placed with the utmost safety.
Our opponents are divided on part of their can
, didates, and the different factions manifest a consid
erable degree of animosity against each other, al
though one faction is entitled to as much honesty
and has as much principle as the other, and not a
jot or tittle more. This is a "family quarrel" with
which we have nothing to do. Whigs and
Anti
masons may look on and will, no doubt, look on,
with the same feeling that the "Hoosier" woman
did when her husband and the bear were fighting;
but no one ought to take part with either faction.—
it is a fight in which the one faction is contending
for the keeping, and the other for the getting, of
the " spoils." Hans On !" therefore seems to
he a discreet dictate, and one which every sound
Whig or Antimnson will practice on at the ap-
proaching election.
EDWARD BELL, Esq. is on both Locofoco tick
ets for Assembly,and Capt. Joss STEWAIIT on both
for County Commissioner for three years. There
is, no doubt, design in this; and it is easily seen
that if Whigs or Antimasons vote for these gentle
men, on either ticket, they may be elected. Loco
focos are fond of office, and they know that " half a
loaf is better than no bread." Their party may be
united on their candidate for Congress and on their
1 candidates for Canal Commissioners. It will there-
f "'14143 , 944 1 1144EniU1i04414544 1 44Wting-M"
ticket—the whole ticket—and nothing but the ticket.
Shirleyeburg.
It is with pleasure that we notice that the borough
of Shirleysburg is on the march of improvement.
Several brick dwelling houses and other buildings
are under way of erection this season, and the place
exhibits quite a business appearance.
The town is beautifully located, end the sur-
rounding country is good and rapidly improving.
We have had occasion to stop there several times,
the present year, and it is but an act of justice to
" mine host and hostess" of the " E xchange"—Mr.
WE...! and his lady—to say that they afford as
good and comfortable accommodations at their
Temperance Inn, as can be met with in the country,
the " crack" hotels of Hollidaysburg and Hunting
,
don not excepted.
Mr. ' , raker, who keeps the other public house,
likewise administered on temperance principles, is
also well spoken of by those who have given him
their patronage.
The fruits of the temperance relbrmation, and the
more recent revival of religion are plainly percep
tible, and we hope they may advance with the place.
Our Congressional Nomination.
Gen. JAMBS lima., of Ccatre county, our able
and efficient representative in the late Congress,
was, on Tuesday of last week, again nominated by
the conferees from the several counties in the dis
trict. We publish the proceeding of the Codeine
Meeting in another column.
Tho manly course of Gen. Irvin during the late
Congress received the universal approbation of the
Whigs of his district, and throughout the country.
He proved a firm and zealous advocate of the Tariff
as well as of all the other leading measures of the
Whig party, and thus gained for himself the in
creased confidence of his constituents. Let the
Whigs and Antimasons of Huntingdon, Centre,
Main and Juniata but do their duty faithfully, and
General Irvin will he triumphantly elected over any
Locofoco Anti-Tariff candidate that may be in the
field against him. Whigs, Antimasons, and all
friends of the Tariff act! be up and doing on the
2nd Tuesday in October ! ! Your duty to your
cokes and to your country requires your exertions !!!

Commissioners.
The Locofoco State Convention assembled at
Harrisburg on the sth inst., and made the following
nomination for Canal Commissioners:—
JAMES CLARKE, of Indiana,

WM. B. FOSTER,Jr., of Bradford.
These men, being of the same political " etripe"
es the present corrupt Board, tarot be beaten.
Robbers About—Case of Burglary--
Arrest
On Monday last our town was thrown into an
unusual state of excitement on account of sundry
robberies which had been committed here.
Early in the morning, about 2 o'clock, the family
of WILLIAM On HI ROM, Esq. heard a person in their
house, when Mr. O. arose from his bed and went
down stairs. On coming down ho discovered the
back door open, which he at once shut. About this
time he was struck nay the robber—the blow being
aimed at his head, in the dark, missed its aim and
the arm of the assailant struck the shoulder of the
old gentleman. Mr. Orbison who had nothing to
defend himself with, now called loudly, Boysl
Come on boys, I've got him ;" and Mrs. Orbison,
who was yet up stairs, replied "I'm coming with the
pistol—here it is!" or something to that effect.—
There were neither boys nor pistol in the house, yet
the call and reply had the desired ellixt—the robber
who was shut in, showed no more fight, but sprang
to another room, jumped on a window, kicked out
the sash jumped into the street, and ran towards
Wallacee's Tavdtn as fast as his legs would take
him. He had entered the house at a back window
—took with him an axe from the wood shed, and
opened a desk into which he set his light while he
was rummaging it for plunder. He got but two or
three dollars—specie—before he was driven from
the house.
Early on Monday morning a stranger who gave
his name as 11. B. Orr, was arrested, in bed, at
'Wallace's, where he had stopped for a few days.—
He was introduced to Justice Africa, who, upon
hearing, committed him to prison to await his trial.
Another robbery was committed the same night,
in the house of JAMES STEEL, Esq. The robber
entered the house by a window—went up stairs rate
the room in which Mr. Jacobs, Maj. Steel's clerk was
sleeping, and took his watch and about $l6 in mo
ney from the pockets of his clothes. The young
man heard the pantaloons drop on the floor—raised
himself up in the bed—but thinking the little dog
belonging to the house had got into the room and
made the noise which wakened him, he laid down
again and went to sleep. In the morning he found
his pantaloons in another room.
On the previous night, (Saturday) Jackson's tav
ern was entered by some person, through a window,
and robbed of a gold watch, with a gold chain and
key, four finger-rings, two breast-pins, a neck-lace,
a pair of gold ear-rings, and a few dollars in money
—the property of Miss Jackson, and also a pair of
gold spectacles with blue glasses, belonging to Mm.
Jackson, in all amounting to about $2OO worth.
The public house of Mrs. M'Connell was also
entered on Saturday night, but the robber found
nothing to suit him and left the house without even
disturbing the slumbers of its inmates. In the
morning a profusion of burnt and broken matches
were found scattered on the floor of one of the rooms.
Suspicion rests upon the stranger, Orr, as the
person who perpetrated all these robberies. If Orr
is the robber he probably has one or more accompli
ces, although he has not been seen with any person
or persons who would are: beet s disc-0,14410n,-,

who had adopted it had themselves taken the benefit
of this very law.

Act of Assembly of June, 1842. They also presen
ted J. Ellis Bonham, and others who signed the
notes. It appears to have excited considerable feel

have the effect of driving this currency out of circu

Gee. Beene: cos, Secretary.
REBECCA AND DER DAUGHTEIIB.-A correspon
dent, who perhaps has not paid much attention to
the current foreign intelligence, (says the Baltimore
Sun) desires to know, who aro "Rebecca and her
daughters," mentioned in connexion with the dis
turbance in Wales. "Rebecca" is a name, appro
priated to a stalwart farmer, who is unknown to the
authorities, and the "daughters" arc his associates.
They commit their depredations disguised, usually
in female apparel. They have a secret organize.
tion, and aro only known to each other. In Wales
' it appears that on roads turnpike gates have been
erected a very few miles apart, at which enormous
tolls aro charged. To this the farmers object, and
under cover of night, they meet and destroy the
gates, in the hope by this means to compel the exac
ters of the tolls to remove the obnoxious gates
entirely. This is the extent of their depredations.
A SINSINO Moos.—A very remarkable little
animal, a mouse, having the surpassing ability of
warbling notes which very closely resemble those of 1
a lark, has lately been exhibited in London. The
animal also imitates various other birds with ease
and fluency. It was recently caught, and has be
come quite tame, and sings very frequently.
FIRST DEMAND ON ENGLAND UNDER THE Asn
norm. TuEATT.—Benjamin Hays, in company
with Oliver M. Lovvnds, Esq. was employed by
Jacob Little & Co. of New York, sometime ago, to
proceed to England, and under the late treaty arrest
a man named John Clinton alias John Reed, who
is charged with having committed a series of forge
ries, to a large, amount, upon Messrs. Little & Co.
The have had Clinton arrested and committed until
further evidence of identity &c. can he procured
from New York.
Arr.:masa Wsniviso.—The Westreoreland In
telligence of the lot inst. says :—Mr. Lemon Davis,
of Mountpleasant township, was suddenly killed on
Saturday (26th tilt.) by a fall from his horse. The
particulars of this unfortunate circumstance, so far
as we could ascertain are these :—The deceased, in
company with another individual, a Mr. Campbell,
were on their way home from Ligonier; and being
somewhat excited, they proposed racing their horses.
Sometime after they had started, the horse which
Davis rode, ran off through a wood; Davis when
found, was lying on the ground unable to speak,
having a severe bruise from the side of the neck
down to his thigh. It is supposed that the horse
from the appearance of the saddle, which was cov
ered with dust, must have fallen and rolled over the
body of the unfortunate Davis. He breathed his
last about 10 o'clock that evening.
