Washingtonian Lecture No. 7.
The meeting on Saturday night was the most
multitudinous one we witnessed this winter i—in
short, it was a general " gathering together" of the
youth and beauty us well 09 of the middle aged and
the veterans of the town and neighborhood, who
had come to listen to that "wild ambito!, a Catholic
priest." Every seat, nook and corner of the Old
Court House was crowded to excess. The Rev.
Mr. Pendygrass addressed the meeting for about an
hour and a half in a masterly manner.

The National Intelligencer of Friday last states
that WM. WI LKI NB. of Pennsylvania, was yester
day nominated by the President of the United S.,
to the Senate, to be Secretary for the Department of
War; and the appointment was immediately con
firmed by the Senate.
THOMAS W. Girorma, of Virginia, was also yes
terday nominated by the President of the United
States, to the Senate, to be Secretary for the De
partment of the Navy, and forthwith confirmed by
the Senate.
Msesrs. Gilmer and Wise have resigned their

make a better or more generous use of the gin. We

land county, for next Governor, of last week. Although no notice was given until
The first number contains an article headed
"Tire Huntingdon Journal ;" but even that is made
to sublime the " War Club's" favorite. In the
article referred to, the editor says he, regrets to see
that we, in our paper of the 7th inst., evinced so
much ill-feeling upon the subject of the nomination
of a candidate for Governor;—that we should not
forget that we are brethren, fighting in the same
common cause, &c. Now, all this sounds very
well ; but why don't the friends of the " Indian
Fighter" apply it to themselves, for certainly uo one
stands more in need of such caution than they do.
Mr. Jaynes exerts his ingenuity in framing sen
tences in such a way as to create en erroneous im
pression on the minds of his readers that General
Markle is gaining in the favor of the people in this
section of State. He says we should recollect
"that if there is a diversity of opinion between the
friends of the Old Warrior of Westmoreland, and
the friends of Mr. Irvin, in his Congressional Dis
trict, that it is art honest difference of opinion."—
If Mr. Jaynes is himself mistaken in this matter,
honestly, we tell him that there is no " difference
of opinion" in General Irvin's district, with regard
to his nomination. His constituents all consider
him as well the most competent as the most aroila-
Me candidate of the two. The following sentence
is not much less disingenuous than the above quo
ted one: " Why, then, shohld the editor complain
if the Harrisoh Democrats East of the Mountains,
should prefer Generalflarkle to Mr. Irvin."
In our paper of the 7th we spoke of an attempt
bring made at llanisburg to prevent the nomination
of Gen. Irvin, and characterized that effort as a very
unfair one. We stated that the Stevens faction,"
and the Telegraph, were at the bottom of the Markle
movement; and that the counterpart of the " War
Club," the " Old Warrior," put forth at Harrisburg,
I as an experiment, was of a most disgusting character.
This seems to have beenthe regretted " ill-feeling"
evinced by us. It was not without just cause; for
we saw the Mari& papers teeming with articlesand
communications derogatory to the chare^•ter of Gen.
Irvin in every respect. And even the War Club"
from which we extract the above high-sounding'
sentences, copies such articles, and republishes the
figuring and the despicable inferences of "Old
Mifflin," the correspondent of the Harrisburg Tel
egraph. Were the Markle papers disposed to act
honorably and fairly, would they snatch up and
publish articles and extracts derogatory to General
Irvin, and at the same time maintain a grave-like
silence about those which present his true merits
and character I
We never yet said any thing intended or calcu
lated to disparage any one of the candidates named.
If Gen. Markle shall be fairly nominated by the 4th
of March Convention, of course we shall support
hint to the utmost of our humble ability, as we shall
any other that receives such nomination. And we
demand the same course from the " War Club" and
every other Whig and Antimasonic paver in the
And in conclusion, we state, once fur all, that no
man or set of men need expect that the friends of
Gen. Irvin will ever submit to have ther favorite
dealt with unfairly, and grossly misrepresented, with
out resenting the one and correcting the other.
Col. R. M. Johnson,
Col. Johnson has written a letter to the editor of
the Washington Globe, defining his position in re
ference to the Locofoco nominations. Tho veteran
has lost all his spirit. He is willing to accept of any
thing that his party will give him—he will take the
Presidency or the Vice Presidency, or any thing
else—no matter what.
I repeat, says he, between my friends my position
is that of neutrality, until the convention shall act
and dispose of me; in the meantime, I am in the
hands of the people. Should it be the pleasure of
the convention to nominate me for the first office,
should accept the honor with gratitude and reluc
tance. I should accept of the second with thanks
and with pleasure; and am willing to take my po
sition among the rank and file, if such be the pleae
ure of the convention, without a murmur.
A contemporary says this is a good deal like the
man who called on Gen. Jackson during his admin
istration, and solicited an office. He named one
that was worth about $5,000 per annum, but the
General told him that it was disposed of. The ap
plicant enumerated several others, with either of
which he would be satisfied. The General replied,
My friend, I feel very sorry to say to you that
they are all engaged."
" Well, General, I feel rather sorry myself, but I
am in your hands, and maybe you can give me
something, worth, say two or three hundred dol
"It would certainly afford me great pleasure to
serve you in any way, my good friend ; I feel a very
great regard for you—but at this moment I have
not a single office, high or low, that I am at liberty
to give you."
. 1 1 1 ell, General—General—l—l--I--we nre
about the same size--I am rather badly off—can
you spare me a pair of your old pantaloons!"

Mn. Eamon :—A communication signed "Old
Mifflin" recently appeared in the Telegraph, ma
king a most unwarranted attack upon Gen. Irvin,
and written in such a way as to have the appear
ance of coming from a friend of Mr. Toland or
Judge Banks. Now the fact is it was r.itten (as
the author of this knows from a source not to be
doubted) by a warm friend of another candidate,
whose name I need not mention. 'rise object of
the writer was to injure Gen. Irvin, and throw the
odium of the move on one or both of the gentle
men above mentioned. This gatne must not be
permitted, without exposure, and you will oblige
by the insertion of this brief statement, which con
tains nothing but FACTS.
February 10;1844.
The spring sun bringsthe logien out.
Tuesday morning, yet in the evening many persons
were in from the country, so that the meeting was
large and respectable beyond our expectations.—
The proceedings ought to be read by every citizen of
the counties proposed to be mutilated to gratify the
speculating spirit of the property holders of Holli
daysburg and its vicinity. The resolutions embody
many patriotic and substantial reasons why this
county should not be divided.
The opponents of the now county have until
now been, as it were, sleeping, not even dreaming
that there was danger that its friends would suc
ceed in having their speculating project treated with
serious consideration by the Legislature. But
while the opponents were slumbering in supposed
security, the friends of the new county were active
ly engaged in getting up petitions in the way in
which petitione are but too often gotten up--they
have kept borers at Harrisburg, who have exerted
all their energies to promote their project, both by
openly advocating it, and by well aimed insinua
tions and ingenious innuendoes, until they created
an impression upon the minds of members of the
Legislature, that the people hero are indifferent with
regard to a division of the county, and would almost
rather submit to division than have a continual agi-
tation of tho question.
We arc glad to see that the people are at length
aroused on this subject, and take a firm and deci
ded stand against the attempted division.
Besides the many reasons assigned in the resolu-
tions against the division, it will be well for the tax
payers to bear in mind that a few years ago a new
Court House was erected for the accommodation of
the citizens of the whole county, and that a debt war;
contracted which is not vet fully paid. Would it
not be the height of injustice to cut off one half of
the county, and let the tax payers of the remaining
half bear the burden of paying that debt"! If any
have unwittingly signed petitions for a division of
the county, it now behooves them to remonstrate '
against it.
Many, perhaps, have never contemplated what
this project of cutting up the county may lead to.
It should be borne in mind that the present House
of Representatives has already passed a bill to re
move the seat of justice of Columbia county from
Danville to Bloomsburg, a distance of some eight
or ten miles, so as to make the seat of justice more
central. And a portion of the people of Schuylkill
county are also petitioning the Legislature for a re
moval of the seat of justice of that county. Now,
if our county is divided agreeably to the boundaries
prescribed by the bill reported in the House of Rep
resentatives, it will bring the northern and western
boundaries of Huntingdon county within a distance
varying from five to ten miles of its seat of justice.
Will tho people of the extreme lower end, some of
whom have about forty miles to travel, submit to
such a state of things; pr will they not improve
upon the plan of the Bloomsburg people, and ding-
I amp away at the Liwbdritorp,Amtlil
...WM' Pries, county
is divided, projects of this kind will be set on foot;
and if carried through, we would not only have the
present Court House to pay for, but also be at the
expense of erecting new public buildings in the
more central scat of justice.
We hope the Legislature will consider well the
bearings that its legislation on the subject may
have upon the interests and the happiness of the
people concerned therein.

for publishing, in this borough, a Temperance pa
per, to be called the a Mountain Torrent." The
prospectus states that the paper is to be published
by M A. Miller, assisted in the editorial department
by A. W. Benedict and George Taylor, Esqrs.—
The project deserves encouragement.
General Irvin's Popularity.
We notice that the one-sided,unfair statements
in disparagement of Gen. irvin's popularity, which
were started at Harrisburg through the columns of
the "Telegraph" and "Old Warrior," by some not
over scrupulous enemy to the General, have been
copied into the "Norristown Free Press," " Gettys
burg Star," "Pittsburg American," and other pa
pers of much respectibility and influence. Now
the conductors of these papers we do not believe
would knowingly do the General and his friends in
justice, but they have been led into it by the specious
figuring of some calculating politician who has
private ends to further by such work ; and as an art
of justice, and to set the matter right, we casual
think more is necessary than to call their attention
to the following facts, fairly told, which show con
clusively that Gen. Irvin's popularity is of the right
kind—the kind that wins the victory. Will the
Editors alluded to lay them before their readers:
When a candidate for Congress in 1840, out of
a poll of 13,098 votes in his district, Gen. Irvin re
ceived a majority of 426. In 1841, when only 29
votes less were polled, Judge Hanks was beaten in
the same counties 850 votes.
In Our present district Gen. Harrison's majority
in 1840, was 645—Gen.Irvin's, in 1843, was 1330
—lrvin's majority being 691 GREATER THAN
Oirf Juniata and Huntingdon, 770 votes. In
1843, in the same counties, Gen. Irvin received a
minority of 1 396—and this when there was a con
siderable falling off from the vote of 1841 on both
sides. Had there been as full a vbto polled in 1843
as in 1941, we may fairly infer that Gen. Irvin's
majority would nave been proportionably increased,
and that instead of 1336, his majority would have
approached 2000.
But here is another view of the case, and still
more conclusive Oidence of his popularity:
In 1838 our district gave 1599 majority against
the Whig candidate for Congress.
In 1838 Gen. Irvin was our candidate, and the
majority against us was reduced to 267—and that
when ho had Gen. Potter, the most popular Locofo
co in the district, for a competitor.
At the next Congressional election, (1840) Gen.
Irvin was again our candidate—and still gaining on
our enemies—he beat his opponent (Gen. A. P.
Wilson) 428 votes!

of March Convention.
GENTLEMEN—Fro m the proceedings of our late
County Meeting, I observe that you were instructed
to urge upon the State Convention the propriety of
nominating me as the Antimasonic and Whig Can
didate for Governoi. However willing I should be,
under ordinary circumstances, to serve the people of
the County, or the State, according to my capacity,
in any station their favor might assign me, at pre
sent the precarious state of my health compels me
to decline the honor of a nomination. This course
I am the more emboldened to pursue, from a knowl
edge that there are in the ranks of our party many
gentlemen in every way qualified to discharge the
duties of the office in question, and that my with
drawal will at least diminish the number of candi
dates by one, and remove one obstacle to the union
of the party upon an other. You will therefore
oblige me by not presenting my name to the Con
I cannot allow this opportunity to pass without
returning my sincere thanks for the repeated expres
sions of confidence I have received from the people
of Lancaster county. These I shall ever hear in
grateful remembrance.
Very respectfully, yours, &e.

a dozen of Whigs in Centro county Who do not
prefer CLAY and IRVIN to any other individuals, I
and should the latter be nominated for Governor he I
will receive a vote in that district that no other Mall

Whig in Clinton and Lycoming counties who does
not prefer Gen. IRVIN to any other man whose

melancholy truth that thousands full victims to
Consumption every year, from no other cause than
neglected Colds; yet we find hundreds, nay thou
sands, who treat such complaints with the greatest
indifference, and let them run for weeks and even
months, without thinking of the danger. As first
allow business, pleasure, or carelessness to prevent
you from giving it any attention ; it then settles
upon your breast—you become hoarse, have pains
in the side or chest, expectorate large quantities of
matter, perhaps mixed with blood; a difficulty of
breathing ensues, and then you find your foolish
neglect has brought on this complaint. If, then,
you value life or health, be warned in time, and
don't trifle with your Cold, or trust to any quack
nostrum to cure you ; but immediately procure a
bottle or two of that famous remedy, Dr. Winter's
Balsam of Wild Cherry, which ;s well known to be
the most speedy cure ever known, as thousands will
testify whose lives have been saved by it.
For Influenza it is the very best medicine in the
world, as hundreds will testify.
