RAILILOAD MBETING.-Our neighbor of the
Globe suggests the propriety of having a railroad
meeting in this place come timt during the coming
court, fur the purpose of advancing the project of
constructing a railroad from Harrisbu:g to Pittsburg.
The suggestion we think a good one, and hope the
meeting will be held, and reeolutione passed both in
favor of the proposed imr: , rovement and of bringing
it through our place. Railroad communication be
tween the above mentioned place., would, we be
lieve. bo of great advantage to the State works, in
creasing as it would, the travel on this route, and
coneequently the amount of merchandize and pro
duce carried on our canals would be proportionably
increased. Let there lye a meeting then we say,
and if our citizens are favorable to this project, let
the influence of Huntingdon county be thrown into
the scale in favor of the Juniata route.
Gonst's Manazrnra ♦xD LADY ' . Poox.—
The Nov. No. of this splendidly got up periodical,
it on our table. The embelishments of this No.
are truly splendid. The first, is a steel engraving
—"The Indian Captive," painted by Darley, and
engraved by G. H. Cushman, representing the ab
duction of a young.lndian girl of the Shoshonee
tribe, by a warrior of the Blackfoot Indians, accom
panied with an explanatory sketch. "The Dan
cing Dolls," a wood cut, engraved by A. I. Dick,
also accompanied by a sketch. The "Polka Feels.
ion Plate" designed by Darley, and engraved by
W. G. Armstrong, representing Eight Figures of
Fashion—more than has ever been given by any
'Phis No. also contains a choice selection of
Music, composed by Julien, entitled "Carlotta
Orisi Polka." It also contains a large amount of
choice reading matter from the pens of the most
distinguished literary Writers of the day, and emi
nently deserves the patronage of the public.
Jona C. Kuxxxs, Esu.--Thie talented young
'Whig representative, has been triumphantly re
elected by the people of Dauphin county this fall,
running about five hundred ahead of his ticket.--
We aro truly rejoiced at this result as there is not
a more deserving Whig in the State. Mr. Kunkle
will be one of the master-spirite of the next Legis
lature, and without any disparagement to the other
gentleman elected, we do not believe the next Howie
will contain hie equal as a beautiful orator and
bound argumentative debator.
cr,:r We have received a copy of the" Pennsylva
nia Reporter and Home Journal," published by our
friend Col. Dictate. The paper is neatly printed
and barring hie politic., we wish the Col. success,
as he is in private life a very clever fellow, and ex
ceedingly good looking—presuming ourself to be a
iIk:X.IAX] W JORDAN, Esq.—This gentleman han
been elected to repsertent the Dauphin and North
Senatorial district, in the Senate of
Pennsylvania. Considering the desperate effort. I
made by the Native. and Locofocos to defeat Mr.
Jordan, his election is a glorious victory, truly.
Wo congratulate the Whigs of that district, who
manfully stuck to their integrity, on this mull.
They could not have oven their votes to a firmer
Whig, or more strictly honest man. We say this
from our personal acquaintance with this gentleman.
Mr. Mackey, who suffered himself to run, for the
purpose of defeating the Whig candidate, received
a merited rebuke from the unflinching Whigs of
his own county.
Gj•The November Term of our court commen
ces on next Monday. We should not be the least
surprised if we would get come money at that time
for jobbing and advertieing. Not that we eMnd
in need of any—we suppose no one will so under
Now is the crime to Subscribe.
The long evenings have arrived and every body
has lime to read a paper, and we hope every ‘Vhig
in the county (and Locofoco too, if they will) who
does not take one, will send in his name to us. We
are thinking, as this is the ago of improvement,
about getting new type, and if our Whig friends
will give us the proper encouragement, we intend
making every exertion to render the Journal a use
ful and interesting 11 big county paper. The sub
scription price of a paper is a mete trine, in corn
widen with the benefits arising to a family front
the weekly reading of a well conducted newspaper.
We aro anxious to extend the circulation of our
paper, both for our own advantage and the interests
of the Whig party, and hope one Whig friends
throughout the county will ei4 eta in doing so. If
every subscriber we have would send us an addi
tional name, our mean. of benefiting the Whig
party would juat be doubled, and our income would
be such as to enable us to devote our whole time
and whatever talents and energy we may pewterer,
to making selections and preparing and properly di
gesting editorials for our paper; and we now prom
ise to make increased exertions to please in pro
portion to the exertions made by our friend's to ex
tend our list.
We are truly grateful for the liberal and encour
ageing manner in which we have been patronized
by the people of Huntingdon county, during the
very brief time we have been in their midst, and
eon assure them that this appeal is not made•in any
spirit of complaint, but merely to point out to our
friends the c icapeet Alld most efficient meane of
benefiting the cause in which fie ell, as Whigs,
g mutual interest,
The Tariff Convention.
We learn by the proceeding. of a meeting held
in the city of Pittsburg, that there is to be a Tariff
Convention held in the borough of Hollidaysburg
on the 12th of November next, to "adopt mea
sures in reference to the subject." This meeting
appears to be called by the leaders of the Locofoco
party of western and middle Pennsylvania, most
of them the wire-workers and heads and tails of
the supporters of James R. Polk. Thomas burn
side, who is now one of the Judges of the Su
preme Court, elevated to that important poet for
PertiCeli rendered, by the party that calumniated
Henry Clay, has, it appears, laid aside the Judicial
ermine, and entered the political arena, was Preei_
dent of this Pittsburg meeting, associated with
other. of the dame kidney. JUL K. Moorehead,
John C. Myers, John Potter, Charles Stealer, all
dyed in the wool Locofocos—all bitter enemies of
the Whig cause, with a few Whigs who have been
duped into joining the Locofocee, to sustain, as
they say, the Tariff of 1892. To us, this whole
manieuver is supremely ridiculous, and deserees
the execration of every true Whig. Whet, hate
these Locofocoa, who like certain animals that do
not open their eyes for nine days, just saw the I
light, that they should become all at once so anxious 1
about one of the great Whig measures for protec
tion— the Tariff of 1842?—exclusively a Whig
measure, we say, only seventeen Locofocoe in Con
gress voting for it. Do three unblushing hypo
crites, who by efforts fair or foul, opposed Mr. Clay
and the Whig party in 1844, and who as a party,
led this blind giant Pennsylvania, to embrace Jas.
K. Polk, with all hie nefarious free trade and British
principlee. expect the Whigs now to help them
frighten their free trade President from his darling
object of breaking down the protective system?
They knew that all that was said in Polk's letter
to John K. Kane, as regarded the Tariff, was sheer
moonshine—that Polk was a free trade man and
opposed to the interests of Pennsylvania, and now,
after the frauds and falsehoods practised upon the
people that Polk was a better Tariff man than Mr.
Clay, carried the election, and they begin to Bee
from every indication from head quarters, that the
people can be no longer deceived in regard to Jae.
X. Polk's position on this subject, they cry out at
the top of their voices, "The Tariff is in danger,"
and call upon the Whigs to join them in mass
conventions to sustain it against the ruthless hands
of those they have by the basset means elevated
to the highest offices under our government. Out
upon such bare-faced hyprierley.
We do not wish to be considered as unwilling
to go all lengths to sustain the Tariff of 1842, and
the interests, of Pennsylvania, but in doing so, we
desire to go into it with Men who make entire little
*thew of honesty and consistency. Let tariff meet
ings be held--let resolution. be passed in favor of
the Tariff of 1842, and the dietribution of the
proceeds of the public lands, (because these two
measures mud be one and inseparable with all
who honestly desire to put the protective policy on
a permanent basis) and let resolutions be passed
declaring to the world that Pennsylvania was de
ceived in regard to the opinions of Jas. K. Polk on
the subject of the Tariff, and we can all then cor
dially join in with our Locofoco friends in sustaining
the great interests of Pennsylvania against the eh ,
croachments of the President and his cabinet. But
until this is done—or until a disposition is evinced
on the part of three Locofoco leaders that tdis shell
be done, every Whig owes it to himself to with-
hold his countenance and aid from a movement
which we verily believe was got up for the purpose
of still further deceiving the people in regard to the
true position of the Locofoco party on this subject.
since the above article was written, we received
a communication from a friend, singning himself a
A Thief Hater," which we publish with great
[definite, showing up this movement in its true
light. We invite attention to it, and hope our truly
original and talented friend may favor us often with
articles from his pen.
o:rt will be seen by reference to the official ta
ble published in to-day's paper, that James Burns
is elected Canal Commissioner, by a large majority.
This wan of course expected, from the manner in
which the whig party was organized this fall. The
candidate of the whig party was a good one, and
had he been brought before the people at an earlier
day, by a convention of delegates from the several
counties of the State, and a proper effort made to
get out the voters, the roeult would have been, in
our opinion, a very different one. Capt, KA RNP
is a gentleman, well qualified to fill the office of
Canal Commissioner. He has made the rates of
tolls upon our canals and railroads his study, and
entertains most liberal and enlightened views on
the subject of trade and travel upon our improve
ments generally. We hope ho may again be
brought before the people in such a way as will
insure his triumphant success.
In connection with this subject, we would ree
-1 pectfully suggest the propriety of having a Whig
State Convention, on the 4th of March next, for
the purpose of nominating a candidate for Canal
' Commissioner, arid adopting measures to have the
party thoroughly organized throughout the Slate.
Pioneer Packet Boat Lino.
This company, we are pleased to observe, are
now doing a fine business in the way of carrying
passengers, the packets being daily well filled. We
are glad of this for several reasons; and among the
most prominent is that it will have a tendency to
induce this enterprising company to continue the
running of their boats next season. There is no
mode of conveyance more pleasant than these ad
mirably conducted packet hoots. The captains ar e
all gentlemanly and obliging men, and do every,
thing in their power to render their passenger,
coxfortable. Their fare is not surpassed by any
of the first class hotels in the country,—being the
very best the market will afford. We can conceive
of no more pleasant trip in fine weather, than a
ride horn Harrisburg to Hollidaysburg, in ono of
the Pioneer packet boats.

beet Family ppere printed in Philadelphia.
What is Wrong?
The last Globe denies that the election of Gwin
and Patterson is anything dee than a Loeofoco tri
umph, and the editor gives it as his deliberate
opinion that the county of Huntingdon is soundly
LOCOFOCO from " PRINCIPLE." We are
informed that our friends of the Standard issued
an extra, which on account of our absence from
home we did not see, claiming the election of these
gentlemen se a division triumph exclusively, it not
being, say they, a contest between the two parties.
There appears to be something wrong in this mat
ter. Is the lower end man about to deceit his di.
vision friends in the upper end who elected him ?
or has there been a mutual understanding among
the Locofocos of both ends of the county, to cheat
the division Whigs out of their votes? Previous to
the election, these two Locofoco preemie appeared
to understand each other perfectly—the inane ar
guments were used in tho column. of both, and
they appeared to vie with each other in their abuse
of Henry Brewster and the gentleman of their own
party, A. Patterson, Esq., who was running as an
Anti-bivision candidate. But now, that the elec
tion is over and their scheme to defraud the people
has succeeded, they pretend to understand the mat
ter quite differently. A purely Locofoco triumph
in one end of the County, and in the other an ex
clusive victory to the division interest. Hoff our
friend. of the big district, who were caught in this
Locofoco trap relish all this, we are not prepared to
say, but we venture to predict that it will lie a long
time before the masses of that once staunch Whig
district will be again found voting in ouch a way as
to give the Locofoco press an opportunity to come
out atter the election and announce to the world
that old Huntingdon is soundly Locofocti Ilona
principle. We think our neighbor of the Globe
will find, before another year rolls around, that he
has been little too feat in announcing the conver
sion of Huntingdon county to Lacofecoism, and
that the Whigs Who toted with his party on a
local question, will not stand those triumphant
flourishes about • Lecefoco victory, achievei by
their exertions and their votes.
0:)"We acknowledge ourself under epeciel obli
gations to the Globe and Standard, for the kind
wishes expressed by them, in noticing out two-fold
arrangement. We feel very much inclined to
"trent," if we just knew what kind of beverage
would suit our neighbors. Well, we suppoee,
that can be decided on, at our first meeting, the
eigns at present, we are happy to say, being entire
ly against "pistols and coffee"—slings, we euppoee
are altogether out of the question, if neighbor
Jones should get restored to his wonted good nature
and join the party.
From the Pennsylvania friquirer,
The position of Mr. McLane as Minister to Great
Britian, is exciting considerable attention. Tho
Oregon question, was, it is intimated, confided to
him only indirectory or collaterally. The negtnia
lion, actotding to the official puller, is to be kept cln
this side, while Mr. McLane is or was merely em
powered to assist indirectly in London. It is said,
howeirer, that our Minister at the Court of St. James
has become dliteetiefied, because he has not been
enipowered to make any decided progress in the
mate pattlettlat Object Of this minion, It is diffi-
Milt to understand this affair. Mr. McLane evident
ly went alitoad impressed with a belief that he
ehould be able to return in a short time, otherwise
he would have resigned the Presidency of the Bal
timore and Ohio Railroad, to which (and doubtless
because of the belief bf his Speedy return) he was
but a few days since re-elected. If, then, on witting
out, he thought he should be able to adjust this
Oregon affair, very considerable powers must have
been confided to him and with reference to this par
ticular eubject. How then are we to understand
the declaration of the official, that the negotiation
is to bo kept on this side of the water l The Bal
timore Patriot, or alluding to the subject, says:—
The country isfcberish about this Oregon busi
ness, and cannot understand for whet Mr. McLane,
was sent to England, if not in relation to that mat;
ter, and is therefore slow to believe that he ie.° have
nothing to do with it—first, because they have con.:
fidence he would settle the question amicably; end
secondly, they fear it cannot so be settled by the
negotiators in Washington. It is, therefore, rea
sonable to expect that "rumors" will find their way
into the papers, and that where the public has been
disappointed in its expectations--as it seems likely
to be in Mr. McLane not being the negotiator of
the Oregon question—that some cause should be
assigned for what it reptile as a change of policy
on the part of Mr. Polk."
Tee MORMONEI.-Tho Mormons have resolved
to go to Oregon, and not to California. They
have held a grand Convention at Nauvoo, and re
solved unanimously to leave Illinois° and settle M
Vancouver Island, on the Columbia river—the
wealthy agreeing to devote their means to assist
the poorer to emigrate with them. This island is
about three hundred miles long, and from seventy
five to one hundred in width. It is separated from
the main land by a long, narrow strait, and lies be
tween the 47th or 48th and 51st or 52d degrees
of north latitude, extending along the coast in a
northwest direction. The boundary line between
the American and British possessions in the north
west will probably pass across the Island. The
English, we believe, have one or two tending pests
on the Island, hat for the most part it is inhabited
by Incions, of not a warlike disposition.—lnquirer.
A NT R B.—lt appears that Bradford coun
ty, Pa. has become the asylum of a portion of

them in Franklin township, one day last week,
when he by his cries gave tho alarm, which' was
further communicated by blowing of horns, firing
of guns, &c. and the whole party, sixteen in num
ber, rallied to his defence, and rescued hint from
the officers of the law.—lnquirer.

For the Journal.
The Loco Folio Swam Tariff
Ma. CLAIM—A call has been issued by the
choice leaders of the democratic party, together
with a few whip, to the people of Pennsylvania,
to assemble in a popular convention, at Hollidays
burg, in this county, on Wednesday, the 12th day
of November Mat., to express themselves favorable
to a protective tariff. Eldge Bernsidb, ti digtiti•
guished Loco Foco, is to preside over the conven
tion, which, together with other circumatancee,
dicates that the lerideri of that party arr to bo the
controlling spirits in the concern. TIM objett
evidently, by a timely apprdprlatiuh of principles,
to keep their party, in this Stale, from falling to
pieces. The cell is entirely; signed Ey c;tlxene Of
Pittsburg, addressed to all Parties favorable to the
tariff, the whole proceedings of which convention
are to inure to the benefit of the Loco Foco party.
The leaders of that paity as Individuals and its
public acts as a party, have been against a protec
tive tariff from the installation of General Jackson,
up to this time. But within the last fifteen
months, they have discovered that the people of
Pennsylvania are warmely in favor of it—and con
sequently, they must push their boat into the cur
rent, or be stove,' to pieces on the chores of politi
cal solitude. This convention has therefore been
called, to blubber out to the public, like whining
and flattered babies—“l'm your boy"—"we are
for the tariff as well as the whigs." Well, if you
are for the tariff, call a convention of your own
flock and go for it like honest men, and let the
whip: stay at home and mind their work. You
know that every whig in the state of Pennsylvania,
is a tariff man—and so also, in nearly every honest
hard working democrat. Ye political demagogues,
convert yourselves,—the whigs and all honest peo
ple in this state, are right on this subject.
The whigs have fought, reasoned, written, talk
ed and implored on this subject, when there was
no democratic "eye to pity nor arm to save," until
they have shcceeded in convincing the people of
its utility and necessity; and
. then, after having
borne the burden in the hedt of the day, these po
litical dragons want to lie down beside it and
watch it in the chat of the evenii4. It is a whig
measure both in the North and the South ; and in
Pennsylvania, it was first a Whig measure exclu
sively, but hoe since beconle a measure of the peo
ple. Yet, after the organized and long continued
6pposition to it, by the hiding nieritheis of the
democratic party, in every Section of the Union,
from the Mississippi to the Penebeeot, they hare
the hardihood to come out, amidst the intellectual'
effulgence of the nineteenth century; and holloW
to the people,—"we are for the tariff as well as tea
whip." Surely nobody can believe, that they are
honest in what they say ! Loco Focos calling the
people into a Protective Tariff Convention!! It
is as perfectly ridiculous as it would be for the
devil to invite the angels to hold a prott,uttpd rnoo
ting. It would be as much out of place to see a
regular built Loco Foco voting fbr a good honest
protective tariff, as it would be to see a tiger grow
ling and snarling in the gardens of paradise; or a
mad ox bellowing, arid kicking up gravel on the
flowery plains of eternity. N'Vhiga, don't have
anything to do with their humbug convention—
they want to steal your intellectual offsprings and
sell them to the British for broad-cloth and railroad
