'While at Hollidaysburg. last week, we visited
the new Rama Catholic church in that place. It
is a handsome building. in the plain Gothic style;
but the chief attraction to visitors is the altar piece
—a beautiful painting of the Crucifixion, by Mr.
De Franca. Much has been said and written about
this pointing, but words cannot express the sub
limity and beauty of the whole. We bud expect
ed to we a are specimen of the fine arts, but the
painting far eurpassed our expectations; and we
are convinced that our limited time would not allow
us , to discover all its merits. No one who visits
HollidayeSers should neglect eating the interior
of the Catholic Church. We are under oblige
tioms to Mr. Haden Smith, the architect, for his
attention to accompanying us into the church.
The latest intelligence from Louisiana is, that
the Whigs have a majority of four or five in the
lower house of the Legislature, which given them
a majority on joint ballot. The Whigs and Con

to revise the Constitution. The Whigs have cer
tainly elected one of the four members of Congress,
which is a gain, and the fourth district is yet in
doubt. The Whigs nominated candidates in only
two of the Congressional districts—the other two

THE MASS MEETING.
This afternoon is the time fixed for holding the
Whig Mass Meeting in Huntingdon. Although
the season is rather unfavorable, it is expected that
the meeting wilt ho numerously attended. The
committee of arrangements, appointed by the Clay
Club of this Borough, have obtained permission to
hold the meeting at the o Log Cabin" on Mr. John
McCahnn's place, near this borough. The meeting
will assemble at the old Court House, and than
adjourn to the Log Cabin," a beautiful and
propriate place for the occasion.

Affairs in Philadelphia,
The Philadelphia papers Mate that all is pence,
quiet, and perfect order ; and that there are no sy in
toms of outbreaks in any part of the city or its din.
The proper authorities arc assiduously engaged
in ferrctting out, and arresting all engaged in the
disgraceful mobs and riots, and investigating the
causes which led to the perpetration of those out
rages. The papers are filled with depositions and
statements of witnesses and officers, but our col
umns would not admit a tithe of them.
Below we give a number of paragraphs, collected
from various papers, showing that important arrests
have been made; and also many other interesting
matters connected with the late riots.
Major General Patterson mid the Commission.
ere of the Northern Liberties.—Chi Tuesday mor•
fling last, a committee consisting of Messrs. Alex•
nailer Cummings, B. E. Carpenter, Fayette Pear
son, J. B. Coates, and John Phillips, waited on
Major General Rouxa•r Pa•rTaasos, at his Head
Quarters, and presented, with a suitable introduc
tion, an address from the Commissioners of the
Northern Liberties, under the corporate seal of the
District. The Major General replied briefly but
eloquently. For himself and on behalf of the
officers and men of the Division, he returned
thank. He said that, while it was his firm deter
mination, in the fulfilment of the duties of his
command, to maintain under all circumstances, and
at every hazard or loss, the supremacy of the laws
and the integrity of the government, he neverthe
less anxiously desired that, as speedily as possible,
the troops on duty might be relieved, and return to
their ordinary avocations and associations.
Afterwards the same committee called on Brig.
Gen. Cadwalader, and Brig. Gen. Roumfort, with
complimentary resolutions.—Enquirer of the AUth•
Court of Quarter Sessions.—Judge Jones deli.
vered a brief charge to the Grand Jury on Monday
morning, on the subject of the late riots. He had
intended to postpone addressing the jury, but he
was induced to change his views at the suggestion
of the law officers of the Commonwealth. He
said he would briefly state the law in relation to
a person carrying arms. Ho spoke rapidly, but
as the reporter understood him, his view was, that
the right to bear arms in self-defence was a right
of long standing, and had always existed, and was
not doubted,but it was not extended beyond the in
dividual right. It was not lawful for a person to as
semble his friends to protect Isis property, but he
must swear the peace, and invoke the protection of
I the law. There was but ono exception to the law
against the assembling of friends, and that was
! where a person's dwelling was assailed. It was
not lawful for persons to assemble at any other
building than a dwelling house, as such an assem
bling would create fear and jealousy in the com
-1111 munity. The persons so assembling, were guilty,
and liable to be presented as a nuisance. He had
doubt as to the right of a citizen to call an assem
blage of his friends to protect his dwelling. The
citizen should first invoke the protection of the
proper authority.—lf it should appear that men
assembled in any church with arms to protect suds
church, such assembly was unlawful, and the
church a nuisance. and might be presented as such
to the Court. The church must invoke the protec
tion of the law, for every public building menaced
by a mob, was under the protectioc of the authori
ties. No congregation had a right to make a tort
of its church. All churches, he said, should be
disarmed. The community were liable. It had
been said that sonic of the engine houses were
armed, and that armed parties issued irons them. to
the great alarm of various persons.—Whenever
such facts were ascertained, it was the duty of the
Jury to present the names of the offenders to the
Court. This branch of the subject was important,
as circumstances similar to those alluded to, had in
all probability, caused the late disgraceful fights
between certain Fire Companies. As to meetings
at Engine Houses, the Court stated that no citizen
had a right to assemble with arms—not merely fire
arms. but arms generally ; and if such meeting
had been held by Engine Companies, the Compa
ny amounted to a nuisance, and every• member
was guilty of riot. All citizens should keep their
arms at home. The Grand Jury would do the
comrnunity a service by taking up the subject at
once, and investigating it fully. The officers of
the Court were at their service, for the purpose of
procuring witnesses, ste. ThW is but a hasty out
line of the Charge, which, it is to be hoped, will be
written out by the Judge, and published at length,
in order to prevent misapprehension.— lb.
Andrew McLain.—This well known individual
charged with participation in the recent riots in
Southwark, appeared before the Mayor on Wed

that he saw Black on Sunday, with something in a

to one of the cannon of the mob, said he had his
hand on it at the time it went oir. Another person
testified that Turner said ho was near the cannon

Important Arrests—On Saturday, a young man
named E. Harwood, who was employed in a china
store in the city, and getting a living for his wife
and infant family—was arrested by Deputy Sheriff
IHeFute, charged with murder, treason and riot, on
Sunday, the 7th inst. in Southwark. It was affir
med that he was one of the party that drew the
cannon up in front of the Church of St. Philip de
1 Neri. Several witnesses were examined in his case.
Capt. Haswell, of the Independent Guards, said
that he saw a crowd, heard a shout, saw a piece of
artillery, and that Harwood was with the cannon.
Thomas Jameson also testified to a similar effect.—
Judge Jones held the prisoner to $13,000 bail, viz :
$3OOO for riot, $5OOO for treason, $5OOO for mur
der. Harwood is apparently about 28 years of age.
His wife was in Court,appeared much affected, and
cried like a child.
Another Arrest—William H. Springer, of South.
wark, a member of the pressent Grand Jury, was
also arrested. W. H. Everly testified that on Mon
day last, Springer, in the course of a conversation,
said that he was sorry that the military• were about

killed. Mr. Springer was held to hail is $2llOO for
Yet Another—A young man named Christopher
Wren, was committed in default of 2000 bail, char
ged with having gone with the mob, * and searched
houses in order to obtain arms. Mr. Berry testified

visited the house of Mr. Mordecai Cullen, and ob
tained a gun.
A Fourth Case—A young man named Wash
ington Conrad, was charged before Recorder Vaux,
with having knocked down Capt. Hill, of the City
Guards, in front of St. Phillips Church on Bsuulay

Mr. Springer obtained bail,and the other individ

otherwise many of the military would have been
kill e d. He described Mr. 3, as a quiet and order•
ly man. When this conversatton was held, Mr,
liverly, the former witneao, woo not present.—Lig.
More Important Arrests--A man named John
W. Smith, was on Tuesday arrested by Mayor's
officer Levin H. Smith, and taken before the May
or on the charge of being one of the mob who
handled the cannon in front of St. Philip's Church
on %rtify morning, the 7th inst. Mr. Hugh Cas
sidy, police officer of Southwark, testified that he
saw Smith with the cannon in front of the church,
end when the police magistrate was endeavoring to
have it removed Smith opposed lam very bitterly,
and insisted on having the piece fired. He also
testified that Mr. Simpson tried in vain to force this
man away. Major Bradford testified that some of the
military were killed on Sunday night, and that the
cannon was fired by a mob. Smith was ordered to
find bail in $5OOO for treason, $5OOO for murder,
$2500 for riot, and in default was committed to
The Case of Smith—Alluding to en arrest noti

name will be found first on the fist of those appen
ded to the card."—M.

ready to testify against him, but the oath of Mr.
Smith being deemed sufficient, he was held to bail
in $2OOO for a further hearing.-- lb.
Another Arrest—Joseph Ennis was bound over
in the sum of $5OO to keep the peace, on the charge
of using language calculated to excite a riot, before
the disturbances, in relation to St. Philip's Church.
Mr. Kane testified that. Ennis said " lie would like
I to see the church burned down."
Another—An Irishman named Develin, was
bound over yesterday afternoon, by Alderman Boil
eau, on the charge of shooting into the crowd at
the Native American meeting, before the late riots

Fairlamb, of the Wayne Artillery Corps, and the
captain of the Reading Artillerists, at the Girard
Bank. The Mayor ordered him to find bail in $5OO
to keep the peace.—lb.
Troops--Tiro regiment of County Volunteers,
under the command of Col. Goodman, was dis.
mksed on Tuesday until further orders. This re.
giment was under arms from the morning of the
7th, rendered efficient service, and was deservedly
complimented by the Major General.—M.
Anonymous Letters—We have been requested,
by the Attorney General, to say, that he is hourly
receiving vast numbers of anonymous letters, in
regard to the late riots and other subject., which are
rifled with the most important information—in the
judgment of the writers. Unless these writers have
the courage and candor to sign their names, they
may save themselves the trouble of writing, and
that officer the time of reading their anonymous
productions. If they have aught to communicate
worth notice, it deserves to be authenticated by a
responsible name; if it is not, it will be laid aside
as of no value.—Ledger.
Pay of the Troops—Gen. Patterson has exerted
himself to secure for the troops who served in the
riots of May, the compensation due them. in cash.
Certificates were issued in their favor by the Coun
ty Commissioners, which are only payable out of
taxes yet to be collected. Gen. P. requests the City
Councils to advance to the troops the amount of
the certificates.—Phil. Gaz.
Alarming—At quarter past ten o'clock on Mon
day morning, a loud explosion was heard in the yes.
tibule of the Independent Hall. It was announced
by some one in the neighborhood, that a pistol had
been fired, in the very precints of the Court, and
in less than a minute the building was crowded, and
multitudes were rushing to the spot. In order to
allay the excitement, it was necessary to announce
from the steps, that the alarm had been occasioned
by an innocent bottle of Ginger Pop.
Held to Bail—Abraham E. Primer, who was
committed by Alderman Erety, on the charge of a
participation in the burning of Pennsylvania Hall,
during the Abolition riots several years since, was
brought before Judge Jones on 'Wednesday, on a
writ of habeas corpus, and held to bail in $2OOO,
to answer the charge at the next Court.—lnq.
The Fancied of the Murdered Soldiers—Wed
neaday last was a gloomy day for Germantown.
The last sad honors were paid to the remains of
iJohn Guyer and Henry G. Troutman, members or
the corps of Germantown Blues, murdered by the
mob in Philadelphia, on the 7th inst. while in de
fence of the laws. Mr. Guyer's funeral took place
in the forenoon, and Mr. Troutman's in the after
noon. Both were attended by the Blues, in mour-
ring, who mustered very strongly, notwithstanding
the diminution of their numbers in killed and
wounded, and never appeared to better advantage.
The number of citizens in attendance was greater
than ever recollected en the occasion of a funeral.
—The remains of Mr. Guyer were entered at the
upper Lutheran Church, where the Ree. Mr. Rich
ards made an appropriate address, as did also the
Rev. Mr. Helffenstein at the interment of the re
mains of Mr. Troutman, in the Lower Burying
Ground. Platoons were fired by the Blues over
the graves of both.
'Tad the military in the city not been on duty at
the time, we are assured that the funerals would
have been attended by the whole Division. We
are also assured that such is the sympathy felt for
the loos of these brave men, that it is designed as
soon as practicable to erect monuments to their

THIS IS to certify that I have been using
one of Mr. Grimes' patent Smut Machines

HAVING in o•ar mill one of Grimes' pat

is decidedly superior to any other kind of
machines intended for the same purpose of
which we have any knowledge, without the
use of a fan. It thoroughly cleanses the
wheat of all Smut, white caps, dust, &c.,
without waste of grain. We recommend
it to millers as a machine well worthy their

of wheat whatever. We had Young's Ma

to try it fairly, and we unhesitatingly de
