Huntingdon, June 5, 1844.
"The prineipitl objects which, I suppose, engage
the common desire and the common exertions of
the Whig party, to bring about, in the Government
of the United States are :
1. A SOUND NATIONAL CURRENCY, regulated by
the will and authority of the nation.
2. AN ADEQUATE REVENUE, with fair protec
tion to AMERICAN INDUSTRY.
3. JUST RESTRAINTS ON THEEXECUTIVE Pow-
ER, embracing farther restrictions on the exercise
of the veto.
4. A faithful administration of the mime no-
MAIN, with AN EQUITABLE DISTRIBUTION of the
proceeds of sales of it among all the states.
5. AN HONEST AND ECONOMICAL ADMINISTRA
TION OP THE GOVERNMENT, leaving public officers
perfect freedom of thought and of the right of suf
frage, but with suitable restraints against improper
interference in elections.
6. An amendment of the Constitution, limiting
the incumbent of the Presidential office to a SIN
These objects attained. I think that we should
cease to be afflicted with bad administration of the
The Whig citizens of the county of Huntingdon
—the friends of CLAY, FRELINGHUYSEN,
and MARKLE—the opponents of all change in the
WHIG Tenter of 1842—and the supporters of the
PUBLTO FAITH of the Nation and State, are reques
ted to meet at the Old Court House, in the borough
of Huntingdon, on Tuesday evening the 18th June
next, (court week,) for the purpose of responding
to the nominations made by the National Conven
tion, assembled at Baltimore on the tat inst., and
to adopt such measures as may be deemed essential
to the success of Whig principles.
By order of the County Committee,

the Post Office at Mary Ann Furnace, in this coun

Also that a new Post Office has been established

Locovoco CONSISTSNCT !—The locos abhor
duellists and a Bank of the United States, yet they
nominate Pour and DALLAS, the former a duellist,
and the latter the very person who drafted and re

Whigs to ratify Polk's nomination—there will be
a Coonvention on that suject next Pall.

aj. Every New England man knows what a
poke is. Has not the late Convention trammelled
the unruly animal, locofocoeim, with a Polk to
prevent it from leaping fences ?
crj.The Hon. George M. Dallas, we kern accep

cOMr. Tyler has formally accepted the nomina

The Madisonian, of Thursday evening, contains his
letter of acceptance.
The Tariff and Mr. Polk
Mr. Polk nominated at tile Baltimore Convention
as the Loco candidate for the Presidency, run for
Governor last year in Tennessee, and canvassed the
State with great industry, avowing himself every
where as the unit inching opponent of the 'raritl;
especially of the Tariff of 1892. All of his stump
speeches were marked by hostility to the protective
system. That gentleman now is presented to the
people of Pennsylvania as a man deserving their
votes. The people of Pennsylvania, we think,
know their own interests and their own principles
better than to vote for any man for national office
who is not a friend of home industry ; and they will
show their feelings and wishes in November next,
in a way that will astonish those who look to see
Pennsylvania again exhibiting her attachment to
mon rather than to principles.
We shall shortly show up Mr. Polk's anti-tariff
feelings and attachments, and then those Pennsylva
nians who have forgotten Mr. Polk's sentiments will
be able to judge wether lie is a man to be at the helm
of the national administartion.— U. S. Gazette.
For the Journal.
THE CAMPAIGN COMMENCED,
Pursuant to public notice, the friends of CLAY,
FRELDIGHUYSEN and MARKLE, made a
grand rally in front of the New Court House, on
Saturday evening last, for the purpose of setting in
motion that big Whig ball,
" Which is destired to roll and roll on,
Till Locofocoism is banister] and gone."
The meeting- was organized by calling Dr. WM.
-SWOOPS, to the Chair, ALEXANDER CARMON,
WILLIAM BENNET, COl. Jai. SWAMI, ' Vice
Presidents, John Smith and William H. Peightal,
After art excellent Coon Song" had been sung
by the Clay Minstrels," A. W. Benedict, Esq.,
mounted the stand and addressed the meeting in an
instructive, happy and forcible manner. Calling
upon the gallant Whigs there present—many of
whom had stood shoulder to shoulder with him in
the memorable contest of '4o—to again gird on
their armour, unite heart and hand, and with the
ardor, which tho name of lintur CLAY inspires,
march forth once more to battle and to certain vic
tory. After Mr. Benedict had concluded, A. K.
Oornyn, Esq., rose, evidently laboring under indis
position, and delighted the audience with a brilliant,
sarcastic and argumentative speech. Both the gen
tlemen dwelt with eloquent indignation upon the
beautiful consistency displayed by the Locofeco
leaders, who perceiving that Protection to Atneri.
can Industry—a measure that the Whigs have
always advocated—was becoming more and more
popular with the people every day, are now endea
voring, with their usual duplicity, to gull the people
into the belief, that they, as a part#, are favorable
to its previsions. Messrs. Benedict and Cornyn,
proved conclusively that such was not the case, by
refering to the bill introduced into the present Con
gress by a rabid Locofno, for the repeal of Me
present Tariff: After that vote, one should think,
that not even Locofoco impudence could have the
hardihood to proclaim themselves the friends, much
less the advocates, of e PnoTacTive TARIFF. It
stamps their hollow-hearted pretensions, to such a
claim, with infamy ; and it is evidence amply suffi
cient to convince even incredulity itself, that if
Locofoco policy is permitted to triumph, our coun
try would be plunged into all the horrors incident
to " Free Trade." The energies of her enterpri
sing manufacturers would again be paralysed, and
the hum of thriving industry, which, under the be
nign, and fostering influence of the Tariff, has been
gradually making the air vocal with its cheering
sounds, would he changed once more to the wailing
cries of starving operatives,—and for what 1 that
British manufacturers, (who pay their laborers the
miserable pittance of twenty cents per day,) may
find here—here in America, a ready market for
their products. Out! upon such Anti-American
feeling—such ruinous policy. Facts are stubborn
things. Let any man who is really desirous of
ascertaining which party is best entitled to the
appelati. it of "Protectors of American Industry,"
torn his attention to the proceedings of Congress
within the last month, and he will there see that the
Whigs, to a man nobly voted to sustain that Tariff,
which guarantees protection to the American man
ufacturers against the pauper labor of Europe,
whilst, on the other hand; he will discover that 103
members of that party, whose leader James, Bu
chanan, advocated the ten cent a day system, voted
against extending any protection to Home In
dustry. Thus proving irreffutably that the Whigs
are all desirous of promoting the best interests of
our country, whilst "Democracy," (so called) goeth
about the land like an evil genius, and with the
club of Locofocoism, endeavors to thwart those
salutary measures of the IA hig party, which, if per
mitted to go into operation, would inevitably cover
the whole Union with permanent "benefits and
blessings." Elect HENRY CLAY ;—let the
principles he embraces be carried into effect mid the
results will be eminently auspicious. The gloomy
clouds of doubt and despondency, occasioned by
the vacillancy of Locofoco legislation, which now
I hangs like a p all over the energies of our country
will vanish, and the bow of promise once more span
the horrizen of the manufacturers hopes, and cheer
him onward to the haven of prosperity and happiness.
Mr. Kean having been called upon, made a few
pertinent remarks, and concluded by passing a high
eulogium upon the character of Theodore Feeling
huysan ;--a man, he said, whose reputation was so
pure that even Locofoco mendacity dare not assail it.
The utmost enthusiasm prevailed throughout the
evening, and the way in which "them same old
coons," gave three times three for Clay, &cling
huysen and Markle, would have satisfied the most
skeptical that their whole hearts were engaged,
once more, in the same good cause which trium
phed so gloriously in 1840, and which will, this
time, prostrate Locofocoism so low, that like Mil
. It ne'er will rise again."

Pennsylvania Whig n'lembers of
The National Forum gives the follow
ing offhanded sketch of the Whig mem•
hers of Congress from this state :
%Veil may Pennsylvania be proud of
her Whig delegation. t The Ist District
has in Mr. MORRIS, the best representative
she ever elected, always attentive to her
local interests and urging her claims with
impassioned eloquence. Our City Repre
sentative, Joseph R. Ingersoll, needs not
our eulogy, when every Philadelphian is
so justly proud of him. Judge JENKS of
the 6th and Mr. MCILvAINE of the 7th
Districts, are among the most active work
ing men of the House, filling situations on
important Committees, and models of at•
tention to business JEREMIAH BROWN, of
Lancaster, is worthy of the "Old Guard,"
and the Old Guard" has often shown how
she estimates him ;—without being a
speaker and educated as a hard working
man he possesses shrewdness and a prac
tical knowledge of the world, often worth
more than the lore of books. Mr. PoL•
Lout, of the lath District, though but re
cently elected, has already distinguished
himself by a speech on the Tariff. Mr.
Ramsey of the 14th District, is the young
est man in the House, and gives evidence,
that indefatigable industry and a deter
mination to succeed are the best heritage
to be desired in our land. Dr. Nes, of
the 15th District, is a quiet, unostenta
tious gentleman deeply solicitous to please
his constituents, which he has, we believe
succeeded in doing, although he was elect.
ed as an independent candidate. Gen.
JAMES IRVIN. of the 17th District, is a
'soot estimable gentleman, who will, we
predict, in 1847, be elected Governor of
the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. No
one is mote thoroughly conversant with
the interests of our State or more active
in advancing them. Mr. STEWART Or the
18th District, has proved himself one of
the most skilful debaters in the House,
and his advocacy of our principles is
marked by great research and laborious
investigation. JOHN DICKEY, of the 20th
District formerly Canal Commissioner
under Gov. Ritner, is, we think, equall
ed only by John Quincy Adams, in the
regularity of his attendance in the House;
he seldom occupies much time, but is ex
tremely vigilant in watching all the bills
which are called up, and sninnits them to
rigid scrutiny; as a debater, lie is ready
and dexterous. Mr. DARRAGH,Of the 13th
possesses an intimate knowledge of
the wantsof his Allegheny constituency, is
ii gentleman of eminentlegal attainments,
a good speaker and attentive reprsenta•
five. Mr. C. M. Reda), of the 23d Diss
trict, has held an ardaos position on the
Committee on Commerce, which has sac
ceeded in the difficult task of pleasing all
parties. M. R. has never, we believe, ad•
dressed the House, except oa such bills
as came from his Committees, or ill which
his constituency were directly interested
—he is a most valuable member. Mr.
BUFFINGTON, of the 24th District, enjoys
an enviable reputation for all the ameni•
ties of life, is of the legal profession, the
most popular man in his district, and as
e °oily a one as holds a seat in the present

TerriMc Conflagration in

NEARLY 300 HOUSES ISZYMNIE
Advices received yesterday from New

a fire broke out in a carpenter's shop at
the corner of Jackson and Poydras streets,
which soon communicated to some adjoin.
ing frame buildings, and aided by a brisk
wind, the flames progressed and increase
ed with alarming and irresistable fury.—
The supply of water and engines was en
tirely inadequate to check the progress
of the destructive element especially as
the conflagration occurred in a quarter of
the city almost exclusively occupied with
frame buildings. At one period, a line
of devouring flames of several hundred
leet in length, and of considerable height,
advanced or rather rushed furiously fin
ward. Terror and consternation prevail
ed. Families fled fron their dwellings
by hundreds, leaving all their effects be
hind them, and many who on the previous
day were happily and comfortably art
cumstanced, were in a moment rendered
houseless, homeless and entirety destitute.
Indeed, many deemed themselves singo
larly fortunate in having escaped with
their lives. The devouring progress of
the conflagration was arrested, rather
from the exhaustion of fuel than from any
cause.—Severel whole squares were re
duced to ashes—and nearly three hun
dred houses were destroyed.—The neigh
haring streets present a melancholy spec
t tole of w,opin, 4 ;kri,l rui n ed I ttu di,,_
It is feared that a few lives must have he, n
lost, but the confusion naturally attendant
lingo extensive a calamity, prevents the
knowledge and publication of minor -de
tails. This is by far the greatest confla
gration that has ever taken place in New
Orleans. The loss of property is immense,
' but at the latest accounts, no accurate es
timate had been formed.
"A WHIG HOAX."
The Locolocos in this vicinity were
thunderstruck with the nomination of
Pour. When the news was first received
by the passengers in the morning train of
Cars from Philadelphia, on Thursday,
they would not believe it, but pronounced
it A 'WEIIG HOAX." \\ hen subse
quently intelligence- confirmed the firm
news, they were overwhelmed, and ap•
pear ever since crushed by the blow.—
Cass men, Buchanan men, Van Buren
men—all—all were tlissatisfied. Some
said it was an insult to the party and the
people. Instead of satisfying all, it is a
nomination which satisfies core. The
friends of the other candidates before the
Convention, feel that they have been bad
ly treated. We heard several saying
that the Whip would now walk over It' e
course—that Van Buren would have been
a load to carry m Pennsylvania, but a
Southern Free—Trader would break the
party down completely. We think so too.

Who is James IC. Polk ?
Our Loeoloco brethren are making this
inquiry at every corner. It is a hard
question to answer, but we wil endeavour
to shed some light upon one so ob , cure.—
He is a poking sort of a chap, living in
Tennessee, and was formerly Speaker of
the House, of Representatives. He is a
slaveholder—a duellist—and the whipped
Locofoco Candidate for Governor in that
State at the last election. In capacity,
he ranks not quite up to John Tyler, and
goes dead against the Tariff and Protec•
tion, and the distribution of the prozeeds
of the public lands. Of course, he is
bound to be beaten in Pennsylvania. by
10,000 majority, at least !—Telegruph
