TAYLOR, Esq.; a " Revolutionary Relic ;" and a column of Poetry ; and on the fourth page a " Patent Sermon." by "Dow, Jr."—for all of which we bespeak a perusal, on account of their intrinsic value. Znocked in the head.---The meeting of persons friendly to the Annexation of Texas to the Union, whirls was to meet in the Old Court House a few nights ago. "Glory enough for one day." We devoted last Monday to the service of our country. At the tap of the drum, our company, under command of Capt. Dorris, of the 4, bloody 62nd," formed in rank along Main street, in front of the Court House; and after performing a number of evolutions in an admirable style, marched along one street—turned down another—up an other—turned a corner—marched up another street --turned another corner—and marched down Main street to the place of beginning, where we were all brought to a halt in order to call the roll. Owing to some slight disorder, such as crowding upon the officers and the like, the roll could not be called ; and our valiant company was again formed in rank and file—one of our men taken under guard for un soldierly conduct. We were then marched down street to the corner—turned up, passed Washing ton street—turned and marched in front of the county prison, where a hollow square was formed-- the roll called, and the company dismissed. We are compelled to say that the whole company is composed of a noble looking set of fellows, and their conduct on Monday is proof that they are val iant withal, and can stand the fire of friends as well as of enemies. We were sorry, in the evening, to see some of our companions in arms dangerously wounded—one poor fellow in particular, bravo and noble-hearted as he was, had been awfully "shot in the neck," lying with nothing but a curb-stone for a pillow and heaven's canopy for a cover. We hope he will receive kind and skillful treatment, so that the country may not be deprived of his future services. q t Me " Milkli 'a System" is a gloriouB affair indeed, but then it cos the Commonwealth thousands of dollars annuall to keep it up! Mr. Clfy and Annexation. o Mr. Clay h at length shown his hand' on the question of the re-annexation of Texas, and true to the instiAct of Federalism, in opposition to Cie measure." ) T - We extract the above from an article in the editorial columns of the Beacon Light of Wednes day teat. The whole article is one of a usual or der, !raping wholesale and indiscriminate abuse up ? rt Henry Clay and the Whig party. It wee p ned before Mr. Van Buren's letter had reached ollidaysburg. Unfortunately the Editor will hare to step back and "define his position" over again. Balloon Ascension. Mr. Wise, the celebrated eranaut, made his 48th atrial voyage, on Saturday last, at 2 o'clock, from Hollidaysburg. The people of this borough, young and old, were on the look-out; and about half past 2, the balloon was discovered rising over the Warrior Ridge.— The scene was magnificent and sublime. The course of the balloon was in the direction of our town ; but it rose higher and still higher, and when immediately above us, its altitude was such as to make it appear like en egg-shell flying through the air; its distance being variously estimated at from one to four miles. It was gazed at and watched as it sailed on, sometimes obscured and hidden in the clouds, and then again visible, until its diminished form at last vanished in the distance. The Hollidaysburg papers will, no doubt, this week give an account of the voyage, perhaps from the pen of Mr. Wise himself, which we shall en deavor to lay before our readers at the earliest opportunity. P. S. Since the above was written, we have learned that Mr. Wise landed somewhere near Williamsburg, on account of the tearing of the net work which surrounded the balloon, and that when he stepped out of his little oriel ship,the balloon, not having been sufficiently secured, and being detached from its load, again rose in the air, and thus, with out a guiding hand, floated over our town in its ethereal course. The balloon has not been heard of since it was seen by the people of this borough. A Dilemma. The York Democratic Press, a paper that sup ports Martin Van Buren for President, contains an article, in last week's number, on the Texas Question, from which we extract the following: But on bestowing upon the matter proper con sideration, we are confident that NO FRIEND TO HIS COUNTRY—NO LOVER OF THE RE PUBLIC—wiII oppose the re-annexation of Texas to the United States." We ask the jewel of consistency who writes the editorials of the Press to read the letter of Mr. Van Buren on the subject, and then tell the " Demo cracy" of " Democratic York" that the Locofoco candidate for President, is " no lover of his coun try"—no friend to the Republic." The Press editor can prove it logically to his readers if he takes the above quoted assertion for his first proposition. The syllogism will be thus : "No friend to his country—no lover of the Re public—will oppose re-annexation," &c. Martin Van Buren does oppose, &c. Therefore Martin is " no friend to hie country-- no lover of the Republic." " Go it for Tyler and Texas, little Van's not only a used up man, but a Tn /axon. Virginia Election. The following information as to the result of the Virginia election, is from the National Intelligencer. So far as the returns have been received, it is ascertained that the Whigs have elected to the House of Delegates 65, and the Locos 30. The Whig gain thus far is—Accommac 2, Caroline 1, Nor.. folk cm 2, Matthews and Middlesex 1, Mecklen berg 1, Buckingham 2, Roppahannock 1, Franklin 2, Randolph 1, Wood and Ritchie I—total 14. The Whig loss is—Southampton 1, King and Queen 1, Taylor I—total 3. Strong hopes are entertained that there will still be sufficient changes to overcome the Loco majority of the Senate, and give the majority on joint ballot. The only two senatorial districts heard from have both elected Whigs—one of them very unexpect edly. Thera is no doubt of the election of Goggin. Whig, to Congress in the District lately represented by Mr. Gilmer. In Wise's district the vote is very close between Carter, Whig, and Bayly, Loco; all the districts have been heard from but three small counties, and Bayly lends 34 votes. The Richmond - Whig of Monday morning says: Little or nothing heard from beyond the Blue Ridge. The State we think now as we thought all along it would do, has gone for the Whigs. The rapid and great popular gain is conclusive how Virginia will be in November. Later.—The following is from the Richmond Whig of Wednesday last. The Elections—Wo have been in no hurry to cast up the loss and gain. We prefer to wait for cer tainties. We shall to-morrow present a tools of these matters. Tho Whigs have thus far about, or very nearly, tied the Democratic majority of the last session on joint ballot. We have little or no doubt that they have carried a majority on joint ballot—and a majority of the people. Those who wish to understand the true philoso phy of the elections must consult the popular vote. The gain we think, upon the elections of 1840 is between ten and twenty per cent—a plenty. Tax FLAXAGANS AGAIN.—An actin accordance with the views of Chief Justice Gibson, has passed both branches of the Legislature and received the signature of the Governor. By its provisions, one of the Judges of the Supreme Court is required to hold a Court in Cambria county, previous to July 4, 1844, and hear the argument in favor of a new trial in the case of the Flanagans. If a new trial is granted, it is to take place in Huntingdon county ; if not, the record of the court is to be carried into execution in Cambria county. The Clerk of the I Cambria county Court is to officiate as Clerk of the Court to hear the motion fora new trial. This long vexed question is thus likely to be set at rest.— Beacon Light. ANOTHER RaLTC.-It is Mated that them is at present, at one of the jewelry stores in New York, a watch worn by Mrs. George Washington. It has been handed down through her connections and is now owned by Mrs Webster, daughter-in-law of the late Noah Webster. Under the dial is ongrraved 1741, showing the watch to be 103 years old. It is cylinder, horizontal, capped jewelled, and gold case, very plain, and resembling in shape the ordi nary small sized bull's eye." O:7•We acknowledge the reception of valuable Congressional documents from Messrs. Irvin, Stew art, and Morris, of this State. Important Vote! We would ask the attention of all well meaning members of the Van Buren party, and all true friends of the tariff to the vote taken in Congress on the 22d ult. They will see by that vote the proof that the locofoco Van Buren party is what Van Be ten has declared himself to be opposed to the present Tariff. On the vote to take up M'Kay's British Bill, one whig, (from Georgia) and cora HUNDRED AND TIIREII locofocos voted in the affirmative, and seventy seven whigs and only 17 locofocos against it! Even the Northern states of Maine, New- Hampshire,Connecticut,New York,and New Jersey furnished twenty nine locofocos to vote for distur bing the present tariff. While all the whig mem bers from those states, and all the whig members from Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Alabama, Kentucky and Tennessee.—in fact the whole whig delegation, with the solitary exception ol i o member from Georgia ;—voted in solid column to let it alone! One whig and fourteen locofocos were absent! Could party lines be more clearly drawn? It is true that the locofoco members from this state voted against disturbing the wihig tariffof 1842. But that is not to be attributed to any friend ly feeling on the part of themselves or the party. The significant hints which the people gave them at the Congressional election, last fall and more recently in the 13th district, have had a salutary ef fect on the few remaining locofocos whom the peo ple suffered to serve a probationary tour at Wash ington. They saw that instead of having a largo ma jority in the delegation they numbered but ten of the twenty-four members—and they know the cause. They felt that their own seats were not secure and they voted accordingly. Even the anti-tariff mem ber from this district dared not vote in accordance with the views ho entertained on the subject of a teriff.--Norristown Free Press. Whig National Convention, This body assembled in the city of Bal'imore on the Ist inst., and its permanent organization took place the same day, by appointing Hon. AMBROSE SPENCER, of New York, President, six Vice Presidents, ono from each state—and six Secret. ries. The President was conducted to the chair by Hon. Wm. S. Archer, of Virginia, and Reverdy Johnson, Esq., of Maryland. The appearance of this venerable and talented gentleman on the plat form was hailed with an outburst of enthusiasm; and on taking the chair, he addressed the Conven tion in a brief and pertinent speech. The Hon. DENTAMIN WATKINS Lama, of Vir ginia, then presented a resolution, which he prefa ced by a few happy remarks, the purport of which was that as the public feeling had so decidedly set tled the question of the Presidential nomination that it was conceived unnecessary to enter upon the regular and beaten formalities of a ballot. He said it was hardly necessary to name the object of the united love of the entire nation—no eulogy, no effort of eloq hence could so embody all that was pure, noble and manly as the mere mention of his name—the name of HENRY CLAY, of Ken tucky. He therefore proposed that the Convention present unanimously the name of HENRY CLAY to the people of the United States for the office of President. This movement was hailed, as every true-hearted Whig may imagine, with such an outburst of en thusiasm, as has seldom arisen in any land under any circumstances. The talented, the venerated, the tried public servants of our country—the noble hearted representatives of the Whig party of the Union rose to their feet with one accord and cheer after cheer, prolonged and repeated, testified the unanimity of the nomination. The clock was pointing to the hour of high noon on the dial as those cheers arose—the thousands who were collec ted outside the building, unable to obtain entrance, caught up the shout and it will be repeated and re peated, wave following wave, until it will surge over the Union, carrying hope, confidence and hap piness to the nation and, the most inspiriting influ ences to the Whig party. JOHN M. BERRIEN, of Georgia, BRASTUS ROOT, of New York, hens BURNETT, of Ohio, Aaaorr LAWRENCE, Mass. and Wm. S. Amnon, of Vir ginia, were constituted a committee to apprise Mr. Clay of his nomination. Mr. BRONSON of Maine, then read a letter from the Hon. Goofier. Evens of Maine, declining to be considered a candidate before the Convention for the Vice Presidency, and tendering kis acknowl edgements to the Whigs of Maine for having pla ced his name before the people. Mr. linen, of Delaware, read a similar letter from the Hon. Joan M. Coarrox and REVERDY JonNsex, one from JUDGE M'Leee of Ohio. These letters were dic tated by the loftiest self sacrificing wish to concen trate the united energies of the party and produce a speedy and harmonious termination of the delib erations. During their reading, the immense crowd in the gallery had so increased, that the north-west corner settled. A great panic ensued—many jumped from the windows and rushed for the doom and it was some time before order was resumed. I [appily, no serious effects resulted from this, although it was anticipated from tho press and rush that loss of limb, if not of life, would ensue. It is strange how little self possession there is in emergencies of this kind —there is always loss danger in standing still, than in the confusion of such panic rushes. After order had been restored and the gallery partly cleared, the lion. T. M. T. M'Keri sex rose and said he thought the conduct of the gentlemen whose letters had been read, should not pass without some action on the part of the Convention, he therefore offered a resolution that the Convention holds in high esteem their character and services to the Whig party, and highly approves of the purity, patriotism and disin terestedness of their respective declinations. This was adopted by acclamation. Some debate, rather informal, and assuming the character of a comparison of views, arose as to the manner of obtaining the vote of the delegates for the Vice Presidency. In this debate, DUDLEY BELDEN, of N. Y., Judge BeRNZTT I of Ohio, Joaa 8. Ricusans, of Pa., Mr. K sm.:, of Ohio, Mr. Molars, of Pa., Mr. 8 , of Louisiana, Mr. STOUT, of N. Y., Mr. JOHNSON, of Md., and Mr. BERRIEN, of Geo., took part. It resulted in the adoption of a resolution suggested by Mr. RI Cll. ARDS, that the States be called over by districts, and the delegates in attendance answer to their names, and then the election be held viva voce until some one candidate receive a majority of all the votes.— The States were then called and the following del egates appeared in their seats : [Want of room compels us to mnit the long list of Delegates, as well as of the Officers.] The names of JOHN BEIIO EANT of Pennsylva nia, MILLAnn FlLLmons of New York, JOHN DAVIS of Massachusetts, and Talonons FR SLING RUYSEN of New Jersey, were placed in nomination and the ballottings commenced as follows: FIRST BALLOT, Davis.

For Vice President, THEODORE FRELINGHUYSEN, of N. Jersey A motion was then made by JACOB BURNETT of Ohio, seconded by ERASTUS ROOT, of N. Y., both prefaced by eloquent speeches, that the nomination ' , of Mr. FBELINORUTSBN be unanimously confirm ed. On this question, every State, which had ex grossed afirat choice for another than the nominee, gave in its adhesion to the nomination in the most enthusiastic and unanimous manner:—Mr. M'KEtr- NAN, of Pennsylvania, paid a tribute to her beloved Sergeant, and congratulated the Whig party on the selection of a candidate that not even the malignity of that common libeller, Amos Kendall, would dare attack. Mr. KELLY, of Ohio, Gov. ELLSWORTH, of Conn., Mr. LUMPKIN, of Geo., Mr. TowLE, of Tenn., and Mr. LITTLE, of Maine, each in turn paid a tribute to the favorties of their individual States and expressed their most hearty concurrence in the result of the ballotings. Mr. Green, of New Jersey, rose ; he said, with a full heart, to reply to the many compliments be stowed on hie distinguished fellow-citizen, Mr. Frs• linghuysen—he for the last five years had resided in New York, although his fame was of New Jer sey--he envied New York nos the home of no many virtues, but the whole notion would be proud of his fame. In 1822 when Mr. Clay was the sub ject of so many and such bitter attacks, Mr. F. had stood side by side with him, and never, for one mo ment, quailed in his defence. The name of Fre linghysen was among the proudest and noblest of the Revolution; his grandfather was the companion of Washington both in the council and the field-- , at 'Prenton and at Monmouth he faced the enemies of his country--such blood could not harbor treach ery, the people need fear no treason in him. On motion of Mr. Richards of Penna., Mr. Ellsworth of Conn., Green of N. J., William B. Reed of Penna., Mr. Metcalf of Ky., and Mr. Mann of R. 1., were appointed a committee to in form Mr. Frelinghuysen of his nomination. Mr. Johnson of Md. reported the following resolutions which were unanimously adopted : Resolved, That in presenting to the country the names of HENRY CLAY for President and of THEODORE FRELINGHUYSEN for Vice Pre sident, this Convention is actuated by the convic tion that all the great principles of the Whig party —principles inseparable from the public honor and prosperity—will be maintained and advanced by the election of these candidates. Resolved, That these principles may be summed as comprising--a well regulated National Currency —a Tariff for Revenue to defray the necessary Ex penses of the Government, and discriminating with special reference to the protection of the Domestic Labour of the Country—the distribution of the proceeds from the sales' f the public lands—a sin gle term for the Presidency—a reform of Execu tive usurpations—and generally such an adminis tration of the affairs of the Country as shall impart to every branch of the public service the greatest practicable efficiency, controlled by a well regulated and wise economy. Resolved, That the name of Henry Clay needs no Eulogy—the history of the Country since his first appearance in public life, is his history—its brightest pages of prosperity and success are identi fied with the principles which be has upheld, as its darker and more disasterous pages are with every material departure in our public policy from those Resolved, That in Theodore Frelinghuyeen we present a man pledged alike by his Revolutionary ancestry and his own public course to every meas ure calculated to sustain the honor and interest of the country. Inheriting the principles as well as the name of a father, who with Washington on the fields of Trenton and of Monmouth, periled life in the con test for liberty—and afterwards as a Senator of the United States, acted wills Washington in establish ing and perpetuating that liberty. Theodore Fro linghuysen by his course as Attorney General of the State of New Jersey for twelve years, and sub sequently as a Senator of the United States for se, oral years was always strenuous on the side of law, order and the Constitution—while as a private man his head, his hand and his heart have been given without stint to the cause of morals, education, philanthropy, and religion. The letter writer of the Forum, from which pa per we have extracted the above information, closes his letter of the Ist inst., with the following. I have no room, and indeed no inclination: to prolong my letter. I dare not even read it over, for fear of finding inaccuracies in it, and my readers will excuse me if there should be any, when I ex plain the circumstances under which I am writing. My room at Guy's on Monument square, (a host, by the way, I recommend to all who love the good things of life,) is the centre of all the " Commotion --motion—motion"--of the evening. From Bar num's steps, a voice that I think belongs to R. T., Daniel, of Virginia, is addressing the thousands in the square; from Reverdy Johnson's steps Joe Hoxie, of New York, is singing from the "book, with the yellow kiver" and the way the boys chorus it, is a dismay to locofocoism, and from the Court House Robert C. Schenck, of Ohio, is pouring out the thunder tones of his eloquence. The whole city is literally like Rumor--" full of tongues"— from every corner, from every door step, voices aro speaking of the abuses of locofocoism and exhort ing the people to concentrated action for the suc cess of CLAY and FRELINGIIUYSEN. The most magnificent preparations have been made for the Convention of Ratification to-morrow. It is impossible to estimate the numbers in town ; every State is largely represented and the anima tion, fire and enthusiasm of the occasion cannot he imagined, much less described ! The spirit which is abroad will bring back to our country the times of which wo were deprived by the death of Gen. Harrison. I must close, but shall hereafter have much to say of to-day's doings. May heaven bless and sanctify them to the best interests of the coun try. J. B. W. The Prize Banner.—The gallant Whip of the State of Delaware won the National Prize Banner, their Delegation to the Convention of Ratification being, comparatively, the greatest in number. Do. WISTAR'S Ils.xsam or WILD Caxnax.—The extraordinary success attending the use of this med icine in diseases of the lungs, and the many singu lar cures it has ellbcted, having naturally attracted the attention of ninny physicians, as well as the whole fraternity of quacks, various conjectures and surmises have arisen respecting its composition; some physicians have supposed it to contain iodine, other ignorant pretenders say it must contain mer cury, and to some such substance they each attrib ute its singular efficacy. As such opinions aro al together ereoneous, and calculated to prejudice ma ny persons against it, we pledge our honor that it contains nothing of this kind, or any thing the least injurious ;on the contrary, it is composed of the most simple substances, the principal of which are the extracts of tar and wild cherry bark, and the whole secret of its efficacy consists in the mode by which they are prepared.
