How would the hypocritical attacks Spun the
character of Henry Clay look along side of this?
We have received a communication recommend
Capt. S. D. KART S as a suitable candidate
for the office of Canal Commissioner, which may
he found in another column. We are personally
acquainted with this gentleman, and can endorse
all that is said, both by our correspondent and the
editor of the Cambria Gazette, which we give be
low. The nomination of Capt. K., belonging as
he does to the active, business portion of the com
munity, would be heartily responded to by the
bone and sinew of this section of the State. The
Capt. is an active, influential Whig, one that has
done good ...vice in the ranks, and what is of
more importance to the people, un honest titan.
We hope the State Committee will take the
matter into consideration immediately, and, as it
has been suggested that they make the nominatiort,
without calling a Convention for the purpose, do so
at as early a day as possible; so that the people
may have time to make active exertions to secure
the success of the candidate, whoever he may be.
From the Cambria Gazelle.
We would introduce the name of Capt. SAMC.
D. 'CAIRNS, of Dauphin county, as a gentleman
eminently qualified to discharge the duties of that
important office. Mr. Karns has eyer been a firm
and consistent Whig, and is pos6essed of much
practical knowledge of our system of public im
provements, having been engaged in their con
struction as a contractor, and since their construc•
tion been engaged in the practical operations of
boating. He has also served in the capacity of
Collector, and is well acquainted with the laws of
trade and travel. If Ito be nominated and elected,
we are confident he would do credit to the party

them a source of revenue and profit to the State.

Military Encampment at Ephrata, Lancaster Co.,
Pa., will commence on the 9th September next,
and continue until the 13th. On the llth the cor
ner stone of the Monument to be erected over the
remains of the two hundred soldiers who died
there, will be laid. A general Review of the troops
will also take place on that day, and an Oration

It ie evident from the course which the Milli
dayeburg Standard, a Locofoco paper, and the
leaders of that party, are pursuing, that another
bold attempt at humbugging the people of thin
county It to be practised in the political contest just
commenced. Some of the evidence of this is to
be found in the following circumstances:
Alexander Groin and John Crcsswell, Chair.
1 1 man and Secretary of the Locofoco Standing Com
mittee for this county, issued a cull on the 23d ult•
for holding meetings at the usual places to elect
delegates to attend a County Convention to be
hold on the 19th inst., to appoint delegates to the
Slate Conventiloi to be held at Harrisburg on the
sth Septentl!er to nominate a candidate for Canal
Commissioner, and to transact such other business
as inir,ht be deemed necessary. It will be observed
tb'at trot a word is said about a County ticket.
On the day appointed, the delegates thus elected
in the different districts, assembled in this borough,
and first nominated the county ticket inserted in
another part of this paper, on which are the names
of the said Gwin and Creaewell, and afterwards
proceeded to the minor object of appointing dele
gates to the State Convention. It would be idle to
ask whence these township and borough delegates
derived their authority to nominate a county ticket
—net from the people—for it is well understood
that the whole plan of operation was concocted in
this borough, after the delegates had arrived; and
that it owes its shape and form to the plastic hand
of a certain renegade from the Whig party, whose
soul, if he has one, is wrapped up in speculations
! at Hollidaysburg, and who would move all powers
' to effect the contemplated division of Huntingdon
'l'lle Standard notices the Convention and the
Ticket at length, but there is no intimation in it
that both the candidate, for Assembly are division
men; and the Globe, too, is silent on this point;
yet both these papers know that Messrs. Gwin and
Patterson were taken up solely because they are
willing to aid the division of the county ; and that
another gentleman, whoih they run for Senate last
fall, and who is well known to be opposed to the
dvision, received but 10 out of the 39 votes of the
convention. And yet in the face of this careful
concealment, the Standard says these men are well
known " to every citizen of Huntingdon county—
! so well known that we feel it would be presump
tion in 118 to attempt to tell WHO and WHAT
THEY ARE . 0 '
The truth is abundantly manifest. these fel
lows are attempting to practice a fraud upon the
people of the county. Alexander Groin, Eeq., a
citizen of the borough of Huntingdon, and Henry
L. Patterson, of Hollidaysburg, have been nomi
nated with the intention of deceiving the people
into the belief that there is fairness in the matter.
Every man, unacquainted with the fact, would at
once, in his own mind, set down Mr. Gwin as an
opponent of division; but the Locofoco leaders, and
all the active friends of division, are well aware that
Mr. Gwin played Janus towards the anti-division
men last winter—that he went to Harrisburg the
avoeved opponent of division, and corresponded
with citieens of this borough as an opponent of the
measure. while in fact, as was afterwards discovered,
he was doing ell in his power, and using the basest
means, to accomplish the very object which ho pre
tended to his friends to be opposing: A man who
is reckless enough to act such a part cannot be
trusted, and he would deceive the people of Huth
dit3sburg as much next winter, as he did three of
Huntingdon last, if he thought it would result in
personal or political advantage to himself,
Thia part of the ticket is to catch the unsuspect
ing Locofocos of the country, who are opposed to
division, and can easily be persuaded that "Janus"
is so too ; and as they all know him to be a violent,
vindictive and revengeful Locofoco demagogue, all
will feel satisfied that they have a Locofoco anti
division man in him ; so tire deception in ccmplete.
On the other hand Henry L. Patterson is, and
is known to be, a division man ; arid will of course,
commend himself to all the Locofocos favorable to
that measure ; but then, if those who do the elec
tioneering for the party, should meet with a politi.
cal friend who is opposed to the darling object of the
division men, they will find it easy to make him
believe that Henry L. is Adolphus Patterson; and
every body hes of course heard that Mr. Patterson
was at Han isburg all last winter opposing the di
vision of the county. This the Locofoco leaders
will consider a fair way of electioneering; and
"Janus" will of course carry his two faces with
him wherever he goes.
We have deemed these remarks necessary to put
the people on their guard against the machinations
of these political juglers, and will continue them
whenever occasion requires.
If exit: CLAY.—Tho Lexington Observer of
last Wednesday says—"lt may please the distant
friends of Mr. Clay to state that we saw him upon
the election ground, fresh in health and buoyant in
epirits, with his ready joke and ;augh among his
former friends. We do not know whether ho
voted; but we will bet "a hat" (that's the usual bet
I believe) that he did vote, and we will bet anoth
er that he did'nt vole wrong, that is to say that he
voted the same way we did, which of course is right."
Flits AND Loss Or LivE.—On the 15th inst. a
stable in Boston was destroyed by fire, and three
men were killed, by the falling of the gable end
upon them, and several others seriously wounded.
cO"The Whigs of Berk, county, at a county
meeting held on the 4th instant passed resolutions
in favor of the Whig Tariff, and of the distribu
tion of the proceeds of the sales of the public lands,
amongst the States, al:o the following:
Resolved, That in GEN. SCO'J'T we recog
nize a sound Whig, a distinguished hero, an hon
est and able man, and look upon his services as
entitling him to a nation's gratitude as well as its
4j. This Democratic Standard says that " the
men composing the Whig ticket have grown grey
in Aim" The people begin to think that the Lo-
cofocos candidates are assuming quite a different
color—having sought office so long, they begin to
'ovk rather get,i in again making the attempt,
'rho Imcofocos of this county have made the
ssemblij —Alexander Gwin, Esq., Henry L.
Patterson. Prothonotary—Col. John Cresswell.
Register, 4c.—Jacob Miller. Treasurer—John
Long. Commissioner—William Myton. Audi
tor—John Deaver. Coroner—Benj. F. Patton.
This ticket, we are of opinion, can be as easily
beaten as any other that our Locofoco friends could
have put up. We know nothing of the men as
yet, personally, nor do we care; it is enough for us
to know that they are Locofocos of the strongest
I kind, and are the regular nominees of that party.
The idea of electing to an office in the county of
Huntingdon, any man that voted for James K.
Polk, and against the Tariff of 1842, is rather
" rich," than otherwise.
It will be the duty of our friends to not only
elect the Whig ticket, but to turn out in their
strength and give it an overwhelming majority—a
majority worthy of the county. Let our opponents
see that we are as firm and united in local matters
as we are on State and National questions—and
that we ore always, at all times end on all ocen
'dons, ready and willing to sustain both our men
and our principles at the polls. There is not a bet
ter ticket, we apprehend, presented to the freemen
of any county in the State, than the one nominated
by the Whig party of Huntingdon—and there is
not one, we venture to predict, that will receive a
larger majority at the polls, in proportion to the
Whig vote of last fall, than will this ticket.
Some of the Locofocos are becoming very anx
ious on the' Division Question"—so much so that
they have taken two men favorable to division,
hoping thereby to were the votes of the Whigs
Ent favor of this measure. Depend upon it, fellow
Whigs, moat of these Men aro far more anxious for
the division of the Democratic Whig party, than
they are for the division of the county. If there
should be any coalision of the kind above hinted
at, the Whigs will find that they will be mee t
awfully Merited in the out-come.
"Fight oh! right ever!!
Thin is a good motto for the Wain PARTY every ,
where. It is a motto which we earnestly hope the
Wilms will adopt. In the spirits-tirring words of
that indomitable Whig Gov. JONES, of Tennessee,
uttered on a recent occasion, we say to our friends
'Dark and gloomy as the prospects for the politi
cal redemption of our conhlry may be, we do not
despair of seeing a bright and more auspicious day ;
gathering confidence from this hope, let us 'fight on
—fight eve" . .
Yes! Whigs! Tight on—Piglii ever:-=.
Never lay down your arms; never, even temporar
ily, give up. There is alwayi enough to do—nev
er too much time allowed for its performance.
We wish there were more Whigs of the Gov.
Jones stamp than there are. We wish they could
be found more plentifully among those who are in
fluential in the party and regarded as its leaders.
There needs the voice and influence of a thousand
such noble spirits, crying aloud to the lethargic
masses of our party—Tight on I Piglit ever."
Now is the time to make efficient preparation for
the important local election which is approaching.
It will not answer to indolently or negligently post
pone all action until the eleventh hour. It is folly
to be quiet until there is only time enough left to
aecomplial, nothing 0t..11 T.ei ilc !IA up and doing
at once, Let them be no such thing at delay—no
such thought CIS default—no such word as Lit.
The 'Whigs are so situated in this great State at
present, that they have but to arouse themselves
acid bring out the forces they last fall gathered at
the Polls, to carry it triumphantly ! Will they be

I.et the Bugle sound ! It is time to go to work !
Let no man wait for his neighbor to start. That is
no way to repel an enemy or win a victory. Let
no man resolve to keep still or remain idle because
no warning voice and no words of counsel or en
couragement aro sent forth by old and once faithful
sentinels upon some of our prominent watch-tow
ers. Let not their studied silence and strange ex
hibition of frigid zeal in the good cause, stifle the
hopes, Weaken the confidence, or paralyze the ants
of any tried or true soldiers of the yet unbroken
and unconquerable Warn Antar. Forget them, if
they have forgotten us and our beloved cause.
Knowing that there are thousands and tens of thou
sands of strong hearts and noble spirits yetpanting
for the strife and determined to 'fight an—fight
ever,' shout the old battle-cry, raise the Wore
STAND,an aloft, and go into the contest with the
spirit and energy of yore. The prospect is bright

for diecouragentent ; on the contrary, there is much

number of such to be greater than the number of
those who have become deplorably estranged of

I faith and integrity. We believe the great mass
are sound and true, and if they will but arouse

Sale of the Public Works.
The following resolutions were passed
at a large and enthusiastic meeting of the
\Vhigs of Cumberland, held at Carlisle
on the I Ith instant. We doubt not the
satr.e Vienna here expressed with reeard to
our Public orks, are entertained by a
great majority of the Whigs throughout
the State :
Resolved That the absolute and speedy
SALE OF THE PUBLIC WORKS is
regarded by the sVhigs of Cumberland
county as a measure of great public ne
cessity, indisperwsthle to the maintainance
of the ci edit of the State and of the first
importance to the People; because in
stead of being a profit to the State these
works ate a continual expense and burthen
because the lidding of these works are
increasing instead of reducing our enor
mous State debt ; because under the irre
sponsible management of a political Ad
ministration they do not and never will
pay the interest on their cost, thus endan
gering the faith and credit of the State ;
because, they hate ever seen and will
continue a vast CORRUPTION FUND„
accessible to every hishonest and unprin
cipled demagogue connected with their
management; because they have ever been
and will inevitably continue to be the
fruitful field of plunder for the numerous
and rapacious hordes of harpies, who have
through successive administrations thus
rioted and fattened upon the public treas
ury ; because they never can be managed
with enterprise and profit until they are
taken out of the hands of politicians and
entrusted to practical business men ; be
cause the holding of them by the State
cuts of all hope of ever :reducing the
Stale Debt ; and leaves nothing to look
for but its steady.tnerease and the rapid
and fearful addition of still more OP
PRESSIVE TAXES ; and finally because
their speedy sale is absolutely necessary
to save our otherwise rich and powerful
State from hopeless Bankruptcy.
Resolved, That the vote of the majori•
ty of the Locoroco Legislature last win
ter, against the expediency of the Sale of
the Public Works, was a most shameful
disregard of the earnest Wishes of the
People deliberately expressed through
the ballot-boxes; and furnishes conclusive
prOof that the party now in power is oppo
sed to such Sale, and that the People may
look in vain to any Other titan a Whig
Legislature for the accOinplishment el
this great measure of public relief.
A REVoLUTLONARY 11Elio.--There died
recently on Patterson Creek, Hardy
County, Virginia, John Berry, aged 101
years. He was a soldier of the Ameri
can Revolution, and was engaged in the
battles of Trenton, Monmouth, Brandy,
'vine, Germantown, Brooklyn Heights,
and several others. In the memorable
winter of 177;%-'8 he endured his portion
of those extreme sufferings and privations,
which the army experienced when en
camped at Valley Forge, and he was also
present at the surrender of Lord Corn
wallis at Yorktown to 1781.
INTERESTINO INCIDENT. George Wash
ington Parke Custis, grandson of Mr's.
Gen. Washington, is now on a visit to the
Eastern States, for the purpose of view•
hag the battle grounds of the Revolution.
It is between lifty and sixty years since
he was fast in New York, then a member
of President Washington's family. On
his arrival now in New York, a select par.
ty was invited by Alderman Peters to as
semble at his house to greet the distinguish
ed guest. The Morning News relates
the following incident, which occurred at ,
the meeting :
"Two great grand-children of the fa•
mous partizan Gen. Marion, were present
ed to him (sons of Dr. J. W. Francis, and
descended from Marion by the maternal
side.) Having with him his own grandson
who is also a grandson of Gen. H. Lee,
Mr. Custis took the three children to the
Venerable Major Popham, aged ninety
three; the President of the Cincinnati, and
the finest surviving representative of the
Revolution, and bade them kneel to re
ceive the old soldier's blessing, which was
given in a manner of very affecting in•
tercet and solemnity, his hands being laid
on their heads. There," said Mr. Cus
tis to tt e boys, as they rose, now you
will receive no greater honor, and no
greater blessing, till you go up there
(pointing to heaven) to get it." The pre
sentation of the childhood of the genera
tion just entering upon the stage—of di
rect descent from those high historic names
to the almost centanarian representative
of the Revolutionary Army and Age—
aud by the otily orate relic of the domes
tic circle of Washington—constituted a
tableau truly remarkable and beautiful.—
May the blessing and laying
on of hands
be regarded as typical of the transmission
of the " sacred fire" hi om the one age
and generation to the other ! May it lose
nothing in the transmission, and may it be
conveyed on and on, in undiminished vir
tue, bequeathed from worty sire to wor
thy son, through all the far ages Which
stretch down the endless vista of our na
tional future, still widening as rt length

For the Journil,
Mn. EDITOR-1 learn from the papers
that the so.called Native American party
hare nominated Capt. lio.scrt 11. llkrton
for this office—that the Locofocog intend
making a nomination on the sth of Sep
tember—and that the Whigs have not yet
taken any action on the subject. What
is the Whig State Committee about? Do
they intend to let the election go by de
fault? I hope not. If the can think of
and agree on nothing better, I hope the
Committee will meet and nominate a can
didate, a good and f iithful Whig, alike
untainted by Nativeisin and Locofocoism.
And I know or no man in the Whig ranks
more worthy of, or better qualified for,
the office, than Capt. SAMUEL D.
KARNS, of Dauphin county.
Please give the aboVe an insertion in
your columns, and call the attention of
the menibErs of the State Committee to it.
