All who love their party, its principles,
its organization, and desire its success--
and believe it the safeguard of our Laws
and privileges, should be early in the
field, and faithful and untiring in his CI,

46 WE RISE TO ExPLAIN."--Some
of oar Presbyterian friends, we under
stand, are at a loss to know why we head
ed the-resolutions of the General Assem
bly, relating to the war, "More Trea
son." We answer, because the support
ers of the President stigmatize every
one who dares express regret on account
of the existence of the war, or ventures
to doubt the propriety of its commence
ment, as "traitors to the country."--
And the heading of the resolutions was
therefore intended as irony upon them,
and not as any reflection upon the mem
bers of the General Assembly.
ID- Au article in our last, commenting
on an article which appeared in the Har
risburg Union, relative to establishing
manufacturing establishments, should
have been credited to the Lewistown
Gazette instead of the Juniata Times.—

COUNTERFEITS.-$lOO notes on the
Dayton Branch of the State Bank of Ohio
have made their appearance. Also,
counterfeit $lO notes on the Cayuga ,
County Bank, New York, and $1 notes
on the State Bank of Indiana.
The Locofoco papers in general are
teeming with annonymous letters de
signed to show, in the babyistical lan
guage of one of the writers, "that old
daddy Shunk' will be elected by an over
whelming majority." And one, no
doubt a " gentleman from the neighbor
of Bellefonte," as he dates at that
place, asserts that " many old and here
tofore firm Whigs, express themselves
! openly opposed to the election of Gen.
These letters, as they are founded in
falsehood, of course assign no reasons
for the bold assertions which they con
tain. The editors invariably introduce
them as letters, and assume it as a fixed
fact that the "toiling millions" will
swallow any dose prepared by "gentle
men," by which we understand them to
mean those worn out political hacks and
party paid clerks who infest Washing
ton and Harrisburg and other places in
the country. There was a time, per
haps, when a majority of the people be
lieved everything they saw in print—
there may be u few such persons yet;
but We opine that the mass. of voters
have not forgotten that they have here
tofore been deceived, betrayed, and
swindled out of their suffrages by the
same "gentlemen" and the same editors,
who now write and publish falsehoods
with so much avidity.
The letter of Jas. K. Polk to John K.
Kane, is fresh in the memory of Penn•
sylvanians —and so is the story of " Mr.
Polk's near neighbor ;" and the people
see that the anonymous stories told by
irresponsible Locoftico leaders in this
campaign are but miserable imitations of
those villainous impositions of the cam
paign of 1841.. And it Is it significant
fact, that the authors of all those fraiids,
forgeries and impositions have since
been rewarded with good offices under
the National or State Government. No
winder, then, that office-seekers are
vieing with each other in inventing
schemes to defraud the honest yeomanry
out of their votes.
Whenever any statement concerning
Gen. Irvin and his prospects appear in
Locofoco papers, not accompanied by
the name of some responsible person,
the people ►nay safely set them down as
unworthy of belief ; and when purport=
ing to be made over the signature of a
citizen, let the people even then beware
and see that it he not a forgery.
Taylor Meeting at Harrisburg.
A Meeting of the "One Term" wing
of the Locofoco party, was held in Har
risburg on the evening of the 22d ult., at
which Gen. Taylor was nominated for
the Presidency. Judge Dock presided,
assisted by Jas. Peacock, the Post Mas
ter, and others. Senator CAMERON in
troduced J. M. REED and Ex-Recorder
Vaux of Philadelphia, who made Taylor
speeches! The feelings of the meeting
towards the present State Adininistra
tion may be inferred from the following
which we find in the Pa. Telegraph:
"Ile that Runs can Read."
At the Democratic Taylor meeting on
Saturday night, resolutions introduced
in favor of "SHUNK AND LONG
STRETH," were opposed by GEN.
CAMERON, and voted down by'a sub
stitute offered by Col. Salisbury that
the proceedings of the meeting be
signed by the officers and published.—
e need scarcely say that this bus giv
en great offence to tire friends of Shuck,
and caused an open quarrel that is not
likely to be easily allayed.
NORTH AMERICAN AND U. S. GAZETTE.
—The proprietors of the North Amer
ican, Messrs. Graham & McMichael,
have purchased that old and well estab-
lished paper, the U. S. Gazette, and
united the two papers under the above
title. It may now be put down as the
leading paper both in the State and Na
tion. Mr. Chandler takes his leave of
the public as an editor ; a position which
no one ever more honorably filled, and
from which he retires with the good
wishes and respect of all.

Anniversary of American Independence.
Celebration at the Warm Springs.
The anniversary of American In-.
dependence was celebrated by the citi
zens of this place and neighborhood, on
Saturday last, at the "Warm Springs;"
kepi by Jas. Carmoin, Jr. And although
no very general notice had been given
of the celebration, about three hundred
persons, including Ladies and Gentlemen
old age and youth, assembled together
to celebrate with "thanksgiving and
festivity" the "glorious and immortal
day" of American Independence.
At 2 o'clock P. M. the company sat
down to a sumptuous dinner provided

and we have rarely seen a company do
more ample justice to the "good things"

provision for his guests—and the guests
gave him a practical demonstration that
his efforts to please wore highly appre
ciated by them.

On motion, Major G . EO. RAYMOND read,
in a clear and forcible style, the Decla
ration of Independence.
A. K. CORNYN, Esq., being then cal
led for, came forward and addressed the
company in his own peculiar energetic
and fervent style. His remarks were
listened to with marked attention and
greeted with rounds of applause.
JOHN SCOTT, Esq. was then called for,
and addressed the company. His re
marks were 'truly eloquent and purely
patriotic; and the sentiments he ex
pressed found a hearty response in the
breasts of all present.
At the close of the speaking, on mo
tion of Jas. Clark, three hearty cheers
were given by the entire company, for
the Officers and Soldiers. of the Amer
ican Army, now in Mexico.

in the affirmative on the question. This

GEN. CAMERON AND Gov. SDUNIC.—
What do our Locofoco cotemporarios,
who have been asserting that all •was
right between Cameron and Shunk, think
of the late move of the General in the

not look much like supporting his dee

Mr. Shank, but we think he has it very

gffeets of the War
The Mexican War is truly Human's
gallows, destined to hang its inventors.
Instead of a trap for the Whigs, as de
signed by the managers at Washington,
it is the means of hastening and render
ing certain the downfall of the party
that needlessly produced it. It is likely
I not only to give us a Whig President,
and secure Whig ascendency in the
' Union for a long time to come ; but it
promises to give us several States here
. tofore hopelessly wedded to locofocoism.
Among these is Missouri, so long under
the sway of Col. Benton. There the
Whigs are about to bring out a candi
i date for Governor, Col. Doniphan, the
' Hero of Sacramento, a true and sterling
Whig, who, it is said, will sweep the
State by an immense majority. Thus
good comes out of evil, and a righteous
retribution falls upon those who have
wickedly produced a war which even
Col. Benton has declared might and
should have been avoided.
