GEN. JAMES IRVIN,
OF CENTRE COUNTY.
FOR CANAL COMMISSIONER:
JOSEPH \\T. PATTON,
OF CUMBERLaND COUNTY:
HUNTINGDON ACADEMY.—An exarnina
tion of the Students in this institution,
under the charge alley. G. %V. Williard,
took place on Friday last. We were
not present, but understand that the ex
amination passed off to the entire satis
faction of parents and others who were
In the evening, a public exhibition of
the " Demosthenian Literary Society,"
connected With this Acadenty, was given
in the Old Cdurt House. The exercises
consisted of Original Speeches, Compo
sitions; Declamations, Dialogues, &c.—
In all of which the boys acquitted them
selves in a very creditable manner, fully
satisfying the expectations of the large
and respectable audience present. This
Academy is now without a Principal,
the Rev. Mr. Williard having taken his
leave of it at the close of the late session.
Mr. W. we learn has received a call
from a congregation in Winchester, Va.,
for which glace lie has taken his leave.
He carries with him the kind regards of
all in this community who had the
pleasure of 6njdying his acquaintance.
The Trustees, we learn, are about en
gaging the services of a gentleman to
take Mr. W.'s place in the Academy.
Lieut. Crittenden, bearer of des
patches from Gen. Taylor, arrived at
Washington on the Ist inst. He had an
escort of 250 men from Monterey to
Camargo, and was attacked on his way
by the Mexicans under Urrea, greatly
superior in numbers, but succeeded in
repelling them without much difficulty.
Oz r- The Carlisle Volunteer opposes
Gen. Irvin, because he has managed his
"private affairs" in such a way as to
gain a comfortable competency: The
same paper opposes Major Patton ; be
cause he is poor, and says i
•• A man who has not managed his owh atTaire
sacces•fully, might not he the infest man in the
world to entrust With those of the Commonwealth."
Here we have the same paper denottne
ing and stigmatizing one candidate as an
" aristocrat," because he has been suc
cessful in business and became rich,
while it warns the people not to cast
their votes for another, because he has
been unfortunate in business and be
came poor ! Verily, Locofocoism is
hard run for arguments.
The following bdrcingli officers were
elected on Monday last
Chief Burgess—John Bumbaugh; sr.

QUESTION FOR A DEBATING SOCIETY.—
When did James K. Polk exhibit the
strongest desire to ‘. aid and comfort "
Mexicol—Was it when he restored Santa
Anna and Almonte to her Camp and coun
cils, or when he proposed to recall TAY•
LOR and SCOTT, from the Army of Inva

Regulars, en route for Mexico passed
A large and enthusiastic meeting
of the friends of IRVIN & PATTON,
was held at Indiana on the 22d ultimo.
The ball is rolling on !
APPOINTMENT BY THE PRESIDENT.—JAs,
R. SNOWDEN, to be Treasurer of the Uni
ted States Mint at Philadelphia.
PRE WAR NEWS,
By reference to another part of this
paper it will be seen that the confidence
we expressed in Gen. Taylor coming off
victorious, should a battle between his
army and that under command of Santa
Anna, take place, has been fully realized.
Another battle has been fought, and an
other brilliant victory has perched upon
the American Standard! Gen. Taylor,
although stript by the Administration of
nearly all his regulars, and left with but
a handful of men, compared with the
force under the Mexican General, Santa
Anna, has showed not only that he
"never surrenders," but that he was not
born to be defeated. But the loss has
been fearful. Some of the most gallant
spirits of the Army have fallen. Col.
HENRY CLAY, the son of the great states
man of Kentucky, is numbered with the
dead. And who, asks the North Amer
ican, gathered, organized, paid and led
on that army to the destruction of our
gallant brethren ! The trusted agent,
the fellow intriguer and confidant of Mr.
Polk—Santa Anna I Mexico was dis
tracted, torn to pieces ; without an army,
or a trusted leader; without a govern
ment ; without funds, hope or trust ; and
offering an easy congust to any foe.—
Mr. Polk employed and sent thither Santa
Anna her ablest general, Almonte her
ablest Statesman, with a large suite of
distinguished civil and military officers.
They settled the government ; they uni
ted the factions ; they raised armies ;
they provided funds; they gave the forces
the prestige of Santa Anna's military
fame, & the aid of Santa Anna's military
genius. The results are written in
American blood on every field since
fought. The twenty-five thousand Mex
icans who assailed our feeble force were
led on by Mr. Polk, by proxy. Polk di
minished our army, by his orders, to five
thousand ; and swelled the Mexicans,
by giving them Santa Anna, to twenty
five thousand. Polk endeavored to de
prive our five-thousand of their leader ;
and he gave the Mexicans their "Napo
Thus under the direct, immediate, na
tural results of Mr. Polk's measures,
was our little army exposed to this fear
ful danger ; and thus is the sacrifice of
hundreds on hundreds of noble and gal
lant Americans, by which that danger
was overcome, to be directly ascribed to
him—to him alone—to him now, and to
him forever. If the American people
can endure this, they are prepared for
anything. Every drop of American blood
shed in that field of death cries out
against him. It will not cry in vain.
Senator Butler at Home.
From the " South Carolinian " we
learn that a large concourse of citizens
assembled at the Court House in Colum
bia to welcome home Judge BUTLER, the
Senator from South Carolina, on his re
from Washington. A public mee
ting being organized, resolutions were
adopted, which, though no more than
just to his merits, could not but be grat
ifying to him. To these he responded
with his usual frankness and point.—
Among other things worthy of note, "he
adverted to the proscription, by public
meetings in Georgia, by which he with
others had been excommunicated from
what is termed the Democratic party.—
This (he said) would not change his
course. Democracy was a TERM of
DOUBTFUL and F./ILL-4CIOUS im
port—he preferred the name of Repub
lican. There were some securities in
the guaranties of an organized Republic,
none in an irresponsible Democracy.—
He spoke at some length, tracing with
clearness the distinctions between a con
stitutional Republic and the turbulent
action of irresponsible masses."
Tue FAMINE IN EUROPE.—The New
York Express says—" Private letters,
received by the last packet, state that
the lowest estimate of the deficiency of
the potato crop, in the North of Europe
amounts to seven millions of tons—the
newspapers say eight millions ; that the
famine must continue until September
next, and longer, should there not be a
good crop. With all the aid which mo
ney and benevolence can afford, not less
than one Million of human beings must

GEN. IRVIN-THE WHIG CANDIDATE.
The intelligent Washington City cor
respondent of the North American, refers
to Gen. Irvin, the Whig nominee, and
his career in Congress, in the most com
plimentary terms. Indeed, the Whigs
have reason to be proud of their candi
date—of his talents, integrity and uni
form devotion to the true interests of
the country. The writer alluded te,
says the nomination of Gen. Irvin as the
Whig candidate for Governor of Penn
sylvania, has been received here among
those who remember his efficiency and
important services in the 27th Congress
with universal satisfaction. No man in
public life made a better impression upon
those who came within the circle of his
influence than Gen. Irvin. Wherever
he was known, he was valued for the
urbanity of his character—the solid qual
ities of his mind and the purity of his
His influence was always felt in the
deliberations of our friends and in the
construction of measures to relieve the
country from the enormous debt entail
ed by the prodigality of Mr. Van Buren's
administration. Without making an
effort to obtain position in council, his
opinion was always referred to as one
characterized by honesty of purpose,
clearness of discrimination, and calm
deliberation. His exposition of the pro
tective policy and its influence upon do
mestic labor, has been regarded as a text
speech which will last while the great
principles which it was designed to illus
trate, endure. No better selection could
have been made—none better calculated
to command support at home arid to in
spire confidence and respect abroad.
To Pennsylvania the Whigs of the
Union now look for the commencement
of that regeneration which is to be con
summated by the election of a Whig
President in 1848. If Gen. Irvin 1s car
ried in by the triumphant majority that
we anticipate the fate of the National
I Congress may be regarded as settled
'without further struggle. It behooves
every Whig, therefore, and every well
wisher of his country, who would see
the Goths and Vandals that now occupy
the capital driven back to their original
obscurity, and elevation restored to the
public councils, and peace and prosper- -
I ity restored to the nation, to unite in
the good work—to surrender every per
sonal consideration, and to rally at the
polls with the determination to succeed.
Let us join hand in hand, if for no other
sake, lor that of the country—let us en
courage and cherish those, who having
at last become disgusted with the frauds
and excesses of Locofocoism, are now
willing to en;ist under our glorious ban
ner, and let us go into the contest with
one voice and one heart, pledged to re
new the moral victory which the freemen
of the Keystone State achieved in Octo
The following named gentlemen were
elected Directors of the Pennsylvania
Railroad Company, on the 30th ult.:
Thomas P. Cope, Robert Toland, Jas.
Magee, S. Colwell, C. Spangler, Wm. C.
Patterson, Samuel V. Merrick, David S.
Brown, Richard D. Wood, Geo. W. Car.
penter, Thomas T. Lea, Henry C. Cor
bit, John A. Wright.
In regard to the selection of Presi
dent, the U. S. Gazette says :
" We learn that the Directors assem
bled yesterday, and elected SAMUEL V.
MERRICK, Esq., President, a choice which
is in accordance with the views of every
stockholder that we have seen. Cer
tainly, we may say, that thase who rep
resent the largest stockholder, were par
ticularly gratified to learn that Mr. M.
had consented to accept the appointment.
" Mr. Merrick has much experience in
public works, and the entire success of
the Gas Works of this city, which were
erected under his directions, is a pleas
ant evidence of his wish and his ability
to do what he undertakes."
FAMINE IN IRELAND.--A letter in the
National Intelligencer states that the
number of deaths which had already oc
curred in Ireland from famine and its
attendant miseries, was fifty thousand !
Some time has elapsed since the letter
communicating this information was
written, and there is too much reason to
fear that the number of victims has been
largely increased. We have published
' numerous eloquent appeals in behalf of
the distressed peasantry of Ireland ; but
none of them are so likely to take hold
Upon the minds and hearts of our people
as the frightful statement that fifty thou
sand men, women and children have per
ished for want of food. Such as have
not yet contributed a portion of their
means in aid of the sufferers will hardly
fail to do so, and at once, when this fact
comes under their notice.
INVESTMENT OF VERA CRUZ,
SUCCESSFUL LANDING OF GEN. SCOTT.
On the 10th of March, the troops un
command of Gen. Scott, were all safely
landed within three miles of Vera Cruz,
without opposition from the Mexicans.
The landing is spoken of as a scene of
great magnificence. The following is
taken from the New Orleans Delta, re
ceived by the schr Portia :
The troops landed amounted to the
exact number of 12,100.
After the landing the different columns
took up their line of march for the posi
tions assigned to them in the important
action and seige of Vera Cruz.
The steamers Vixen and Spitfire, lay
ing under Punta de Hornor, opened on
the city across the point ad in the di
rection of the Castle, with shell and
round shot, which was returned by the
Castle, but without effect.
Gen. Worth's division, which, it is
said, has been assigned to the operations
on the left flank of the city, from the lo
calis of the landing on the South and
under Punta de Hornos, had necessarily
to move in echellon to the rear, past the
right, in order to gain his proper posi
tion—in the execution of which it be
came necessary to attack and take pos
session of two redoubts thrown up by
the enemy, on one of which was a piece
of artillery, and both filled with infantry.
The redoubts were attacked, charged,
and taken, a spirited resistance being
made by the enemy, who lost several in
killed, wounded and prisoners—our loss
some seven killed and several wounded.
Capt. Alburtis, of the 2d Infantry, was
killed by a round shot, supposed to be
from the Castle ; the same shot taking
off the arm of a drummer (a boy) and
wounding a private. Capt. Alburtis was
a Virginian, and formerly conducted a
newspaper in Fredericksburg. Col. Dix
on was wounded in the breast by a mus
The skirmishing was however no
check to the advancing column, which
passed steadily forward to its position
on the left and rear of the city, where it
halted and commenced the work of en
The pipes used for the purpose of sup
plying the city with fresh water have
been discovered and broken up, corn-
pletely cutting off the supply from the
tanks, which are situated some distance
from the city. . I
During the advance upon the rear of
the city, passed midshipman Rogers,
who had not yet been sent from Vera 'I
Cruz, was bound upon a cart, and or-1
dered to be conveyed, under a guard, to
the prison at Perote, but fortunately i
they were encountered by our forces,
and Mr. Rogers was rescued, and is now'
on board his ship.
The city is now completely surround
ed by our troops, each division having;
taken a strong and advantageous posi
with entrenchments, completely'
cutting off all communication by sea or
land, and at the same time are safe from
the fire of the castle. The positions of
divisions were established on the 13th, I
extending from Punta de Humus, on the '
right, to Punta de la Catita, on the left,l
in one unbroken line, and active prepa- '
rations were on foot for the immediate
subjugation of this formidable place.
So closely is Vera Cruz now besieged,
and so entirely are every means of com
munication cut off, that in a very few
days the news must reach us that both
the city and Castle are occupied by our
The general impression seems to be
that the city will surrender in the course
of ten days or two weeks. No doubt is
expressed of the successful termination
of the enterprise.
The Portia was delayed from the 13th
to the 15th by the prevalence of a Norther,
during which time the discharge of heavy
ordnance was frequently heard, which no
I doubt proceeded from the Castle.

LATER FROM SANTA FE
The Battle of El Passo—General Ponce
.11Iortally Wounded—Forty Mexicans
A Telegraph despatch from Pittsburg,
under date of March 26th, says :
" We have some further particulars
of the battle near El Passo. The Mex
icans lost 40 killed. Their commander,
General Ponce, was mortally wounded.
The number of wounded unknown.—
Letters from Santa Fe describe the coun
try as exceedingly fertile. A new gold
mine had been discovered, 50 miles
nearer Santa Fe.
NOBLE ACT.—A Mexican physician
residing in Camargo, says the Flag, has
received a letter from a surgeon at Sal
tillo, dated two days after the battle, in
which it is stated that Gen. Taylor per
mitted Santa Anna to have all his wound
ed conveyed into Saltillo, and tendered
him surgical aid from his own army.
It is reported in Matamoras that Gen.
Urrea had retreated toward the Tula
Pass, as soon as he understood that Col.
Curtis was marching against him.
It was also said that Santa Anna was
falling back upon San Luis Potosi—pro
bably he has only retreated to Parras.
Five thousand dollars in specie,
belonging to the United States, has been
stolen, it is said, in Michigan, while
those who had charge of it were convey
ing it from Chicago to Detroit.

TUB ITOIOZI Or BLAIR !
MEETING OF THE PEOPLE-IRVIN
AND PATTON !
In pursuance of public notice a large
and enthusiastic meeting of the friends
of IRVIN & PATTON convened in the
Public School House in the borough of
Hollidaysburg, on the evening of the
24th ult., to respond to the action of the
late Whig State Convention. On motion,

unanimously adopted :
Resolved, That this meeting views
with the highest gratification the general
harmony and activity exhibited by the

victory which awaits them in October

JAMES IRVIN, of Centre county, for
the office of Governor of Pennsylvania,
and Major JOS. W. PATTON, for the
office of Canal Commissioner, meets our
most cordial approbation.

Res - olved, That, as acquaintances of
Major Jos. W. PATTON whilst a resident

means to secure their triumphant elcc•
Resolved, That we hold as a cardinal
principle of the Whig Party —and a
strict adherence to which we do sincere

dustry, such as was afforded by the Tar
iff of 1842 ; against the competition of
the pauper labor of Europe.
Resolved, That such an extension of
Slavery as is openly contemplated by
the present Administration, would be an
outrage on the free labor of the north,
and a gross violation of the rights of
Resolv?d, That the malignant opposi

parts of the State.
Resolved, That the present imbecile
Administrations of Francis R. Slunk
and James K. Polk, should recommend
the " One Term " principle to all candid
and reflecting men.
DANIEL O'CONNELL.—The accounts
received from England by the Hibernia,
state that this great leader of the Irish
people is rapidly sinking into the arms
of death. The Liverpool Times says:
"Mr. O'Connell, it is said, is dying.
The state of his health prevents his re
moval to Ireland. His confessor, Mr.
Miley, left Dublin, by express, to attend
him in London, where he now remains.
His complaint is stated to be water on
the chest and dropsy ill the legs—fatal
symptoms ever at his time of life. The
number of inquiries daily at his hotel is
great, and it is said a servant from the
palace is amongst the number."
EMIGRATION.—Letters have been re
ceived by the steamer, says the N. York
True Sun, announcing an overwhelming
emigration from France and Germany.
In Alsace, entire villages are breaking
up, preparatory to embarking for Ame
rica. In Holland, too, a similar dispo
sition exists, and the immense number
of Dutch, who will come out, will ex
ceed anything ever known. In Hesse
Darmstadt, parties are forming for emi
gration ; in one town, a roll of 400 was
signed in a week. To these, we must
add the immigration from Ireland, Scot
land and England. Some of our con
temporaries estimate 150,000 as the
number to come within the next six
