We make this proposition for the
accommodation of those who may
desire a paper until after the elec
rj. Our regular subscribers will confer a favor
upon us, by inentioning the above proposition to
Mr• Sindson's Speech.
On the first page of to-day's paper will be found
e portion of one of the speeches of the Hon. Coo..
Hunsosr, of Mass., delivered in the lower House of
Congress at its late Session. The subject—the
WussT Taanx—is one in which every rarmer in
the country feels a deep interest. The speech dis
plays great research and labor on the part of its au
thor; and the conclusions drawn by him, front the
facts, seem irresistable. Now that the British Corn
Laws have been repealed, and the British TarifTof
1846 has become a law, the truth of the speech will
be tested by experience. We have commenced the
publication of the speech, under the beliefthat ;mono
will neglect to read a production of such general
We aro pleased to find that our nominations are
well received in all parts of the county ; and we can
assure our readers that the whole ticket will receive
the unanimous support of the INhig party, as well
as many of the dcc, ived and betrayed voters who in
1844 believed a lie and cast their sulrereges for
Polk and Dallas, in the hope that they would sus
tain the Tariff of 1842.
The Hollidaysburg Standard, a Locofoco paper,
opeaks of our candidate for a seat in the Legislature
■s follows :
" Mr. Blair is a very estimable man, a lawyer or
very respectable talents—and should he be fortu
nate enough to be elected, his constituents, who
may happen to go to Harrisburg, will have no reason
to be ashamed of their representative."
The Polk & Dallas Ticket.
With a single exception the candidates on!tho
Locefoco Antt•Toriff ur British Tariff ticket would
be unobjectionable were it not for the abominable
principles of their party, which they of course cher
ish. It is time that poor injured and insulted Penn
sylvania should teach her Southern oppressors that
her interests and her feelings are not to be trifled
with any longer; and no part of the State has more
reason for teaching this lesson than Huntingdon
county. The majority against this ticket ought to
be overwhelming, so as to speak in thunder tones
of condemnation, to those in power ; arid help to
swell the universal cry of REPEAL !"
We neglected to state in our last, that our town
was visited by this band on the first week of the
August Court, and that the citizens were much
delighted with their music. It is hoped they will
pay us many more such visits, and eliven our town
with their performances.
cr: i . Our neighbors of the Globe publishes uncon
nected paragraphs against the Tariff of 1846 as too
protective, parpurting to be extracts from Whig
papers published in Georgia. We cannot say
whether these extracts are genuine or whether they
are for4eries ; but from the knowledge we have of
the honesty of Locoforo editors, we think there is no
harm in cautioning the people against further
falsehood and deception. We do not know that
our neighbors have no scruples about inserting the
word Imeofoco for Whig, or vice versa, if it suits

We rarely meet with so complete a tissue of
it/moth/emits es the last number of the Globe
present. Truly, the passage of the British Tariff
1511 of 1.646, by the Locofecos, et the behests of
the "%atter Twill man" and Sir Robert Walker,
has placed the Locofoco editors in Pennsylvania
into a very awkward position. A portion of them
are still for the Tariff of 1842 and denounce the
British act of 1846 ; another portion of them go for
the British Tariff of 1816, but have not the "nerve"
to decry tho Whig Tariff of 1842; while yet
another portion have the hardihood and impudence
to denounce the Tariff of 1842 and deny that it
was put in issue in the campaign of 1844, and these
latter ore the champions of Mr. Pulk's ‘• better
Tarifl;" the British Tariff of 1846.
But as yet we have been unable to ascertain the
" position" of our neighbors of the Globe. True,
that paper has been mit against the British Tariff;
it has published and commended the resolutions of
the Locofoco county convention—which resolutions
do not declat e for the Tariff of 1842, but in favor
of an amendment to the Tariff of 1846; it finds
fault with the Whigs for expressing great favor for
the Whig Tariff of 1842, and argues that the Loco
focoa alone aro it, true friends ; and then, to cap
the climax of its absurdities it copies the following
paragraph from the Union Times, a rank Locofoco
paper, and reCOMlllentls it as " EXCELLENT
ADVICE" not only to all " good Democrats" but
also "to the cooler portion of the Whig party."
Hear it :

1844. " A very little time" and free trade and
democracy will go hand in hand in Pennsylvania
as they do now in the South and West; and then,
when the country has " settled down calmly in sup
port of this now measure of the Government" you
will hear ol no more Tariff resolutions at our
meetings; no more democratic Tariff speeches;
and then progressive democracy will have progressed
so far in the North that neither bad democrats or

Don't condemn it now. Don't kick out of the

"Off with their heads."
For two or three weeks past wo have rendered
our neighbors of tho Globe valuable assistance in
denouncing and oven e.reommunicating that
traitorous Whig with Isocofoco principles, Senator
JARNAGIN, of Tennessee, pretty much such al
better Tar iff man" as James K. Polk, of the same
State, for voting in favor of the British 'tariff of
1846; and it is hopes! we are not presuming too
much upon their LIBERALITY and INTELLI
GENCE when we "call" upon our neighbors of
the Globe to as.vist us in. thundering anathemas at
Senators ALLEN, BENTON, CALHOUN, CAM, Hors-
TOO, and the balance of the 28 Locofocoa who voted
in the same way with Jarnagin. The Globe has
wasted columns of ink and paper upon the traitor
nue Jarnagin, but has not given one fire yet at the
other dignitaries named and their colleagues.
Jarnagin could not have defeated the Tariff, but
he could have voted against it, in violation of his
instructions from a Locofocro Legislature. In this'
way he could have made the vote a tie again ; and
GEORGE M. DALLAS could have had the pleas
ure of voting once more in favor of the odious
British Tariff and against his own country.
We have exhausted our own vocabulary in de
nouncing the traitor Jarrragin ; and we therefore
hope the Globe will excuse us frorn filling our paper
with the denunciations of that great pillar of the
Whig press, the U. S. Gazette and other indignant
American Whig presses. But if the Globe men
can point us to any Locofoco denunciations against
Messrs. Case, Allen, Houston and the ether British
Tariff men, or against ‘r Polk and Dallas too" we
have no objections against publishing " a few."—
We would do this by way of change, just for the
novelty of the thing; but really we are getting tired
of the stale indignation towards Jarnagin alone.
The Girard Bank, Phiadelphis, has again
gone into operation. Samuel C. Ford is President
of the Bank.
cc,' It is amusing to see some of the Locofoco
papers endeavoring to extricate themselves from the
charge of deceiving the people into the belief that
Polk was a Leiter Tariff man than Clay. How
they flounder and sink deeper into ridicule. Indeed
it is humiliating in the last degreo that Pennsylva
nia should have in het bosom such recreant sons as
some of the Locofoco editors are. The fact that
the voters were deceived and defrauded out of their
votes, and the interests of the State betrayed to
ruin by the Locofoco leaders is too palpable to 1w
denied in positive terms, even 63 , them; and
therefore they try to get out of their dilemma by
pretending that the Whigs, who always supported
the protective policy, are also deceitful in their ad
vocacy of that doctrine. How rediculous it is for
these Locofocos who, as their brethren of South
Carolina say, " were TOO IGNORANT and
STUPID to know what were the ISSUES invol
ved in the Presidential election" to pretend now to
be so acute And sharp sighted as to be able to see
into the very recesses of the hearts of the Whigs
and discover that they are not for the Tariff of 1942
1 at heart—that their professions of friendship for
that Tariff are hypocritical. As long as the Whig
speeches and votes aro recorded in favor of the
1 Tariff of 1842 they will be conclusive evidence that
Whig hearts are right also.
We rise to explain,—Tho " or.n Trucks" of
tho Globe, which we alluded to two weeks ago,
were perpetrated by the " illustrious predecessors"
of the present editors of that paper. If further ex
planation is necessary we must refer them to the
files of that paper during the campaign of 1844.
There our neighbors will learn fi om the Globe that
" James K. Polk is a better Tariff man than Henry
Clay" " The Tariff of 1812 is in no danger."—
"Whig rke., &c., The "True.

Prentice, of the Louisville Journal, thinks
that if Mr. Polk were penning down Om Ohio or

husband the youngest by Disbrow. She) talks
freely of the whole transaction, affects to conceal
nothing, attributes all to domestic difficulties, and
fancies that the law can inflict no greater unhappi

A Goon ONE.-Tho Vilage Record says, an
honest Democratic Tariff man remarked the other
day, that he would not be surprised if the Whig
Senators did pass the bill to repeal the Tariff of
1842—the Whigs would do anything! But if
they did, Mr. Polk would veto it !.f That's rich
decidedly. He says that Mr, Polk is in favor of
universal protection--of protecting all classes'—
that he is a better Tariff man than Mr. Clay. Better
and better He says ho knows it—he read it in
the West Chester Republican in 1844—and the
Republican won't lie."
Tns lintTrsit Tamer.—The Canadians are re.
joicing over the repeal of the Tariff of '42. The
Montreal Courier remarks: " As englishmen, we, of
course, are pleased that the tariff is abolished, as
taken in cenjunction with our abolition of the corn
laws, it will open on immense market for us, but
if we were Americana, we should certainly be
tariff men.' "

It is really amusing to see the twistings of the
Locofoco press. Some time since, the principal

the bill passed, and passed against the vote of all
the Locofoco Representatives of the State creep.
ting one, (Mr. Wilmot.) Mr. l'olk approves of
the bill, while he vetoes those which he does not
like, thus showing that the President holds himself
responsible for the act. Well, which horn of the
dilemma do our friends of the Locofoco press seize
upon? Do they applaud the vote of their party
Representatives in Congress against the Tariff and
denounce Mr. Polk for encouraging, and then sign
ing, the bill ? Do they condemn the bill, and those
who passed it, and call for the old law of 1842, and
applaud those who tried to preserve ill Not at all,
They receive, with demonstrations of continued re
spect. the Representative that voted against the bill,
which they said would be ruinous to the interests
of :Pennsylvania. Sound Representatives, these
who knew the right, and dare not maintain it against
Executive influence; and then they applaud with
atilt greater emphasis, because of a more elevated
position, Mr. Polk, who signed the bill and made it
a law. Hurrah for the men that sought to sustain
the Tariff of 1842, for the good of Pennsylvania !
And hurrah for the men that put down the tariff of
1842, to the injury of Pennsylvania! But espe
cially, and above all things, hurrah for the beauti

that despises system even for doing wrong, provided
that more wrong can be done by erratic move_
It appears that Mr. Wilmot, also, who voted and
spoke against the tariff of 1842, and for the bill of
1846, is just as great a favorite as those who took
the opposite course.—U. S. Gas.

God, we're not all iron -masters," said a little legal
official at a locofoco meeting last week. This dis
interested remark by an officeholder elicited from
the faithful a roar of applause, which was increased
by Judge Stewart bellowing out, as he flourished
his fists in the air, "yes, WE wOOT NO PROTEC

however which the Judge does like, but forgot to
mention. lie does not like to hire his " l'ittsburg

the present day, they will find that those
leaders generally, both at home anti

something, were rank black-cockade Fe

So with regard to the measures anti

Democratic principles. Who was the

CLAY ! and a gallant and able leader he
was too. Ile, by his mighty intellect and
indomitable spirit and energy, upheld the
Democratic administration of Mr. Madi

HENRY CLAY is now as good a Democrat
as he ever was, and the measures and prin
ciples he now advocates, and which the
W'hig party advocate, are true Democra

support of every true Democrat in the
country. Democrats need not fear there:
fore, that by voting with the Whig party
they are deserting their principles. Not
so. Whig principles are Democratic nrm•

party, for Whig measures anti 'Whig nen.
The Pennsylvanian, which is cam
of the organs of the Administration, holds
this language :
" But there is no middle ground to take
in such a crisis as this. fie that is not
with the Democracy of the Union, what
ever else may be said to the contrary, is
against ;t. Let us be understood. Our
ineanin,, ,, is clear, that while the State of
Pennsylvania has its own notions in regard
to protection, she is not the less a member
of the great political church liar does it
follow that she should divide from het
friends even in thought. Those who ad
vise a different course—those who ask her
to separate from the Democratic party of
the Union, on this subject —are either her
worst enemies, or their own."
This is plain enough, says the Philadei.
phia Inquirer. The administration hav
determined to resort to the policy at
" whipping-it," All who have the inde
pendence and moral nerve to advocate
Protection to Home Industry, as opposed
to the doctrines of the National Adminis
tration, are to be denounced as traitors to
the party. Senator Cameron and his
friends will please to take notice, and
govern themselves accordingly.
