(Cln last week's Journal two excellent political
articles were given, which should have been credit
ed to the Philadelphia Forum. We allude to "Art
ful Dodging on Polk's Prospects," and Locofoco
Sympathy Reciprocated." The Forum is an able
and spirited champion of Whig principles, and we
do not wish to withhold from it any of its merited
Tosa►no.—We learn from the Vaterlands
Wachter, that the farm of Mr. George Hain, of
Lower Paxton township, Dauphin county, about
four milers from Harrisburg, was visited on the
16th inst. by a tremendous tornado, accompanied
by lightning and hail, which destroyed the entire
prospects of the coming harvest.
Besides the destruction of barns, dwellings,
fences and orchards, a great number of locust trees
along the lanes and roads were torn up, anb ma
ny of the oaks in the woods were twisted off as if
they had been but twigs, and the grass, clover,
corn and wheat were cut off by the hail as if the
mower had pawed by and left the place a sad
scene of desolation.
Loss by Fire,
iry•We learn from the Carlisle Herald that the
dwelling house of Richard Woods, Esq. of Dickison
township was entirely consumed by firs on Tues
day night (18th) The fire originated in the kitchen
which was enveloped in flames before being dis
covered, and so rapidly did the fire extend over the
entire building that the inmates themselves with dif
ficulty escaped, saving nothing but a few articles
of clothing. The lose is estimated at $4OOO, on
which there wan aninsurance of $lOOO.

Grand 'Whig riteetinge--Wahing up
of that "Same Old Coon."
The Whig meeting in the old Court Howie, on
Tuesday evening of last week, was of such a char
acter as to presage more enthusiasm on the part of
i the people in the good cause than was manifested
in the memorable campaign of '4O. Usually all is
quiet in the potitical arena in this county at this
early stage of the campaign. The sky brightens--
the breezes rise—the waters stir—and the popular
waves roll in other years, but not till the month of
August. Then the county ticket is formed, and
every man springs to his post, prepared for action;
and the result, with but a few gloomy exceptions,
is indeed glorious. This year, however, the great
work is commenced in June, and the names of
Clay, Frelinghuysen and Markle are already snag
through our pleasant valleys till the hills and
mountains echo and re-echo the popular sounds ;
and as the contest is commenced earlier, so will our
majority be larger in 1844. Let but good nomi
nations be made in August, and popular feeling
will swell and sweep over "Old Huntingdon" in
the fall like a tornado, and scarcely leave a spot for
Locofoeoism to rest upon. But to the meeting.
A procession was formed at the upper end of this
borough, which moved to the place for holding the
meeting, preceded by a splendid transparency and
a banner, accompanied with martial music. As
the procession passed down Main street, others
joined, and all marched into the Court House,
where the meeting was organized by the appoint
ment of a President, six Vice Presidents, and three
Secretaries. Although but comparatively few per
sons attended court, the meeting was highly respec
table in point of numbers as well as otherwise.--
[See the proceedings on our first page.]
In the absence of the committee on resolutions,
A. K. COllllllll, Esq, addressed the meeting. He
compared the principles of the Whigs with the few
avowed principles of the Locofocos, and passed a
happy eulogy upon the characters of Clay and
Frelingliuyaen, after which he answered the pre
tended objections urged against the termer by his
opponents, and refuted the base slanders that have
been heaped upon him by unprincipled Locofoco
presses and shameless demagogues. The speaker
also noticed some of the slanders published against
Gen. Markle, and urged all to rally to his support.
After the resolutions were read and adopted, A.
W. BENEDICT, Esq. made a speech, in which he
proved, by their own documents, that the Locofocos
are opposed to the Tariff of 1842, and to all other
Protective Tariffs. He read from the Washington
Globe and from the Huntingdon Globe what the
editors called good Tariff doctrine, and that doc
trine overman To THE PUESENT Wlll . O Tlnirr.
Mr. B. stated that the 13th resolution, relative to
the Annexation of Texas to the United States, is
in the very words of Mr. Forsythe, Van Buren's
Secretary of State, and cited the document and the
page in which it is contained. It was good " dem
ocratic" doctrine four years ago, but is now opposed
by the views of Polk, Dallas & Co. Mr. B. then
contrasted the prospects of the Whig candidates
with those of the .Locofocos, and challenged any
Joss BLANCHARD, Esq. was then called for.
le favored the meeting wills a brief address, in
which he remarked upon the doings of the Whig
and of the Locofoco nominating Conventions which
met in Baltimore since he last addressed a public
meeting in this place. Ho said that since the days
of George Washington there has not been such
unanimity in a National Convention as that which
characterised the nomination of Henry Clay. It
was emphatically a nomination by the People.
Other candidates had been named now and then,
here and there, but long before the assembling of
the Convention, all were lost in the growing popu
larity of the "Farmer of Ashland," the "Gallant
Barry of the West." The People presented him
to the Convention, and the Convention presented
him to the People; and he is emphatically the
People's Candidate. But how was it with the
Locollico Convention The patent Democrats,
who always preach that the majority should rule,
first said that shall no longer be democratic—the
minority shall now govern ; and straightway they
adopted the two thirds rule. Van Buren, although
he had a majority, could not be nominated. James
K. Polk, a man who had never been thought of for
the office—never recommended to one delegate, was
finally nominated. What had the People to do
with hie nomination? He is the candidate of the
266 delegates who voted for his nomination. They
all expect advancement if he should ever be elected.
Polk does not owe his nomination to the people--
he would care nothing for them. The delegates
would give him the office, and he would reward
their treachery with appointments. And thus
would the "bargain and sale" be completed!
These are ideas that should cause every voter to
reflect, and every honest freeman will put his seat
of disapprobation upon the conduct of the Locofoco
Several songs were sung from the book with the
"Yeller Kiver." The meeting passed off in good
order, except that a few unruly stones came flying
in through the closed windows. Perhaps the
stones were not so much in fault as some despair.

were listened to with great attention.

Balloon Ascension--,ALIVIOST.
We neglected to state, a week ago, that Mr.
Wise, the celebrated reronaut, contemplated ma
king a balloon ascension from this place, on Satur
day last. Perhaps it was well enough that we were
neglectful in this respect; for people generally are
averse to disappointments. Saturday was rainy
and unpleasant from morning till night, and the
ascension was postponed until Monday. The
crowd of anxious spectators then dispersedtelowly,
and the country people returned to their homes
without even a sight of the balloon.
Monday morning arrived, clothed in brightness
and sunlight. With it came men, women and
children, all eager to witness the novelty of a balloon
ascension; and before noon the town was filled
with strangers, and great excitement prevailed.
In due time the process of inflation was commenced.

was fixed on for the ascension. Towards the mid
dle of the day the calm that prevailed in the morn
ing was interrupted by slight gusts of wind, in
which the swelling balloon tossed to and fro like a
thing of life. At 1 o'clock the cords were properly
adjusted, and attached to the car—the reronaut
stepped into it—and cutting the rope which held
him to terra firma, he rose a few feet in the air,
amid the shouts of the multitude, but soon got in
contact with a stable, and after considerable strug
gling he got over it, but soon a house jumped up
and struck him on end; but, after hard scrabbling on
the roof, he also extricated himself from that, and
finally reached the grave yard hill, adjoining town,
where the balloon vetoed all efforts to go any

somewhat perilous voyage.
The subjoined statement from the pen of Mr.
Wise, will explain the cause of the failure in a
satisfactory manner. We are pleased to learn that
he contemplates making an ascension from this
place in August next.
For the Journal.
In conformity with the obligation
made in my address to the citizens, in Market-
Square, on Monday last, as regarded the cause of
my inability to fulfill my promised ascension from
your borough, I will give a brief outline of the cir
cumstances attending the experiment. It was ob
servable to all present on that occasion, as well rs ,
to myself, that the balloon contained a larger quart.
tity of gas, than it was customary to ascend with.
And yet, after disposing of all the ballast contain
ed in the car, there was not sufficient ascending
power to enable me to clear the house-tops; and
consequently I was lodged on the top of the hill,
east of the town. This, to me, appeared mystesious
[fore the limitation of the appointed time, by common
acclamation. On niy return I immediately called
on several scientific gentlemen to make a test of the
acid which remained, to ascertain whether the
rause of the want of levity in the gas existed there.
•These gentlemen report that the sulphuric-acid
lacked full 160 grains in the pound of its standard
specific gravity; which demonstrated that I had
been operating with sulphureous-acid, instead of
sulphuric-acid: and consequently had in the bal
loon sulphuretted hydrogen, and sulphurous-acid
gas, instead of pure hydrogen gas. I shall imme
diately repair to the house from which I purchased
the vitriol to seek redress; and shall also, from the
encouraging requests, and good feeling manifested
towards me by an intelligent community, redeem
my pledge early in August; after whirls I intend to
retire from the field, as a public practitioner in Aero
My friends will accept this as a brief explanation,
substantiated by the scientific skill in their own
midst, until the pledge can be redeemed by their
obedient biOrvant. JOHN WISE.
Huntingdon, June 24, 1844.
Chester County.
A great Whig Convention was recently held in
Westchester, at which every township in Chescer
county was strongly represented. One township
sent every Whig voter within its limits; several
sent more Wltig delegates than there were voters
in 1840 ; and one had a delegation outnumbering
its Whig vote of 1840, by more than two hundred.
The United States Gazette says, when events,
like these are taking place in our state, we feel au
thorized to say that all is wall, and all will be well,
so long as the spirit which insures such meetings
is active. There must be no diminution of exertion,
no flagging of spirits, no stumbling on small ob
stacles. The great work is before us, and we must
all put our shoulders to the weel, and accomplish
the task, remove the difficulty, and act the station
ageing again. Let the °zombie of Chester county
stimulate all.
The Forum don't think the glorious cld military
boots of Gen. JACKSON will prove a good tit for
Mr. Pout. Calling the latter " Young Hickory"
is a biting satire—how can the fragile, rotten polk
' stalk be like the stout and lasting hickory ? This
trying to play Gen. Jackson, has been attempted by
John Tyler; and Benton has thus exposed it—the
fit is as good for Polk as Tyler :
He wants to play Jackson ; but let him have a
care. From the sublime to the ridiculous there is
but a step; and in heroic imitations, there is no
middle ground. The hero missed, the harlequin
appears ; and hisses salute the ears which were
itching for applause.
cCAn exchange paper says, that on the receipt
of the news of Polk'e nomination in a neighboring
town, a locofoco was asked what he thought of
James King Polk, of Tennessee. He immediately
replied that there was uo such man among the
Democracy—he must be a Fetherel if he's any
body.' An hour after he got his cue, when he de
clared that he was the second beat dernoceat and

A three Sp-penny-bit Concern.
" He would steal the pennies of a dead nigger's'
eyes" is a saying often used to denote the height of
sordid meanness. But a fellow might be guilty of
this, and yet be esteemed decent when compared
with a liquor seller who has proved himself nig
gardly enough to take three fip-penny-bits from a
temperance lecturer as a compensation for listening
to him an hour while addressing a meeting. We
blush to own that we have one man in our town
who acted thus! He walked up, last week, to
Gen. G. W. Riley, at M'Connell's corner, demand
ed the cash, saying "I em a retailer by the drink ;
Pll take my three fips"—took and pocketted the
money. We need not give his name, for the fin
ger of scorn will point out the fellow, and he will
be despised as long as lie lives. The three fips,
like the Devil's ducat, in the drama, will haunt and
curse ha victim forever, and he cannot escape from
it. Even his boon companions, and the penniless
and the besotted spurn the money from them.—
None will pollute their hand with the liquor seller's
Mr. Wright and the Presidency.
There was, recently, a large meeting of Locos
in New York, at which B. F. Butler, presided,
and to which a great number of members of Con
gress, from various parts of the Union, made
speeches. Apart of the speech of the Hon. Silas
Wright, seems to us to hit, with great severity,
the present candidates of the party for the Presi
dency. We copy from the New York Evening
' , ln reference to the idea that my name was
ever to be presented to the American people as a
candidate for the highest office in this Govern
ment, I beg you to be assured that never, for one
moment, have I been vain enough to aspire to
that lofty trust; and while it is true that I did
place in the hand of the delegate to the Baltiinore
Convention from my own, district, a letter une
quivocally prohibiting the use of my name for
that office, it was done because I was assured—
kindly assured by friends, that there was a dispo
sition on the part of some delegation in that Con
vention, in case of the failure to nominate Mr.
Van Buren, ro attempt to use my name. Did I
Ido right, fellow citizens? (Cheers and cries of
'Yes.') I did. And I myself most heartily re
spond to your affirmative answer. (Cheers.)—
Never had you—never had the Democracy of the
i State indicated a disposition to bestow such a
trust upon me; .d until they had done so, I
should have been assuming what, in my judgment,
no man has a right to assume—that I was per
mitted to place myself before a Convention of the
Dttnocracy of the Union, and attempt to gain a
nomination (Cheers.) That was enough. But,
fellow citizens, I was stopped try a stronger reason.
Yovi had, your Democratic brethren throughout
the Stale had with peculiar unanimity, and none
more heartily than myself, designated another one
of our distinguished Democrats as their first choice
for the first office in the country.—(A voice,
, Three cheers for old Matty.' Laughter.")
Now Mr. Wright declares that he placed in the
hands of a friend, a letter positively declining a
nomination to the Presidency, on the grounds that
he had not been designated for such a nomination
by the Democracy. Surely, if such an argument
could apply with any force in Mr. Wright'. case,
it must be doubly effective in the case of Mr. Polk,
itTetien Ire wen ns little thought of for the Presi
dency, as was Governor Haines, of New Jemey.—
If such a man as Silas Wright declines a nomi
nation, because he had not been " talked of,"
then by how much greater reason should James
K. Polk ! !
Tho rebuke which Mr. Wright administers is se"
vere, and ought to be felt.—U. S. Gaulle.
From the Forum,
FIIELINGIWYSEN ON Cr.sir.—When thenews of
the murder of Cilley, through the instigation of
Mr. Clay, reached Newark, New Jersey, a meet
ing was held in the Presbyterian Church, in which
Mr. Prelinghuysen denounced the conduct of Mr.
Clay, and charged him an accessory to the murder.
Dayton Empire.
The above is worthy of the arch-liar of locofo
coism, Amos KENDALL, and shows that when we
charged on locofocoism an effort to lie their can
didates into office, we did no more than justce to
their debased designs. The Hon. T. M. T., when THEODORE FRELINOHUYSEN
was nominated at Baltimore, congratulated the
Convention that his character was so irreproach
able, that not oven KENDALL could defame him.
But as the Newark Advertiser truly remarks, that
distinguished political slanderer has determined to
do what he can to falisfy the remark. In a recent
number of his paper ho proposes what he calls A
Design to illustrate Me character of the Whig
party, in which he suggest. that Mr. Frelinghuy
, nen should be represented in various attitudes:
With a Bible in his hand;
2d. Praying for sinners;
3d. At the communion table partaking of the
sacrament ;
4th. Amid his pious sisters in a prayer meeting;
sth. Walking arm in arm with a black dandy ;
6th. With angels' wings, escorted by a grand
procession of Whig clergymen.
An explosion took place at the Blackly!'
Pits, near Richmond lately. There were 12
hands in the pit, of these, four were Englishmen
and eight colored men. The agent of the compa
ny (Mr. GilTard) first descended the pit, having
gone down as soon as the accident was announced.
He was accompanied by "one of the underground
agents—Joseph Hall. They proceeded in compa
ny, about ten yards from the bottom of the shaft,
when they found Jonathan Jewitt, an Englishman,
alive, but insensible. In consequence of the nu
merous obstructions in the shape of fallen timbers,
&c., the place where the accident occurred had not
been reached when the Richmond Whig heard last
from the pits above 5 o'clock, and of course noth
ing was known as to the condition of the remain

TRUTH Asa Wm—The Democracy of Pitts
burgh held an immense meeting in that city to re
spond to the nomination by the Baltimore Con
vention. The speech of Mr. M'Candless was
culiarily happy. In the course of his remarks he
said :
"The Whigs say Mr. Clay is a fried friend;
and so he is. Ho has been tried twice and con
demned, and ho will be executed in November,
The " will be" of Mr. M'Candless' prophecy is
nothing to the" has been" of the fate of Mr. VAN
Benny. The Pennsylvanian, in the paragraph
immediately preceding the above rich morceau, says
of Mr. Van Buren:
"We regard him as one of the ablest and purest
statesmen of the age. We believe also that his
merits are not yet fully appreciated by his coun
trymen, though the time is not distant when they
will be duly honoured ; and we did most earnestly
desire that he should be the democratic candidate
for the Presidency."
His merits have not been "duly honoured," they
were protested at Baltimore after three days sight.
Ho was repudiated by his own party for demerit,
not on the score of expediency. We heard the
whole proceedings of that Convention, but the
word expediency was not hinted at and "availa
bility" was scouted at as a IVhip; word ! It is be
cause Van Buren was wrong in the issues of 1840,
that Its was dropped and an unknown candidate
substituted ! If then there is truth in the " wit"
of the Pittsburgh speechmaker, how much more
point would there be if it were applied to Van

that ' all the Senators and all the Representatives,
who voted for the re-charter of the U. S. Bank in
1832, were • bribed and purchased by British Ban

the Senators who voted for the Bank. Under these
circumstances the Rochester Democrat is anxious
to know how the Courier can consistently support
