MR. EDITOR :—lf we had no other
Omens of ascertaining, than the annual
visits of those who call upon us to let
us know that they are willing to receive
a nomination for some office on the dif
ferent tickets, we in the country would
know that the time is coining ; and it
has often suggested itself to my mind,
whether it was not the duty of the con
ductors of public Journals, to speak, and
to speak freely upon the subject of our
primary Elections. I have some times
thought I would try my hand at writing
in regard to it myself, if no one else did,
but some how I never could get myself
up to the work. It has now occurred to
One, whether, I might not accomplish
What I desird if I suggested the matter
to you, and asked your views.
In order that you may understand,
'what I want, and what I belieVe descry-
!ing of some strictures, 1 will give you a •
limit of my own notions, trusting that
you will carry out the subject more at
To me it seems a great error, in hob.
est, faithful, and well meaning partisans,
when they desire a nomination for some i !
Office, to set about, either by fair means
DT foul, to get delegates elected pledged'
to secure their nomination • and I will
tell you the reason why I think so. It
engenders a personal strife, which sep ,
orates warm party friends. It begets
and fosters factions which win the par
ticipators away from the great question
at stake—the general good. It makes
all the other parts of a ticket of secon
dary importance, while the single and
most desired office, is the main object.
it makes the Convention of Delegates;
not a body, consulting what shall best
secure the honor, welfare and success of
the party, and its cardinal principles ;
and thus give beauty and strength to our
organization, but a meeting of one man's
br a set of men's friends, who are to con
sult how they can best patch up a ticket
Which will be strong enough to carry
their load; or which in other circum
stances shall prove a loadfor their friends
ns well as the party.
Will you oblige your readers; by giv
ing the above a place in your valuable
paper, and making it the subject of your
Own reflections for your readers, and

Ma. CLARK:—Amid the very impel..
Teet condition, of most of our schools
Tor elementary instruction—a really good
primary school may be fitly compared to
a garden in the wilderness or an oases in
'the desert. Such a school, under the
tare of Mr. R. A. MILLER of Huntingdon,
I had the pleasure of hearing examined
on Saturday the 11th instant. The ex
ercises, though not protracted nor exten
ded to a great number of subjects, were
'delightfully varied and proved
,highly iti
teresting to the numerous and intelligent
auditory. The classes in Orthography
and Reading spoke with proper deliber
ation and unusual distinctness • while
the responses of the more a dvanced
classes, were exceedingly prompt and in
'variably accurate. Being unused to
Write, I will not attempt a particular des
cription of the various exercises. They
were all fully equal to any thing of the
kind I had ever witnessed either in town
or country, at home or abroad; and re=
fleeted much credit oh the pupils, their
teacher and their friends. But Class No;
4 in Geography, a study recently intro
duced into the schools merits and must
receive a more special notice. This class
was rapidly questioned on the. definitions
and general outlines, as well as many of
the minutia of the subject, for at least
three quarters of an hour, not by their
teacher only, but by others—and did not
mis-answer a single question or hesitate
for a reply! This may appear incredible
to those not present, especially
.ivhen I
add, that this astonishing, proficiency is
the result of scarcely eight meek; study,
and that too by young children, some of
whom had not, perhaps ; before eirer look
ed into a Geography. Doubt it who
may, I aver it to be true; and that with
out the least coloring or eicdgeration, as
the many surprised and delighted spec-
tators can abundantly testify.
But the recitations, good as they were,
tiare not the only, nor indeed, the prin.
Opal excellence of this admirable little
school. Far from it. The lively inter
est, fixed attention, exact order, and per
fect self-control of the pupils—these con-
Stitute its chief merit; distinguish it
from the multitude of schools in the
hountry, and make it a model worthy of
all imitation;
These eheracteritities of the school,
felled, too, the most deseried credit on
the teacher, indicate the Cause of his
early promise, and will, if I mistake not,
ensure his future success. They show
tdriClusively that though young in years,
he has sidted his mind with the thoughts
of maturity ; that he has escaped from
the prevailing, but mistaken and degra
ding netted, that the Teacher is a mere
instructor, whose duty is confined to the
paltry business Cif asking questions,hear
ing tasks, and solving problems; and
Imbibed correct views of his responsibil
ities and the qualifications netessary to
meet these responsibilitied, With ease
end pleasure to himself and benefit its
his pupils. While lie keeps in sight df
these great, cardinal principles, and en=
tertains and cherishes these enlarged tiod
ennobling views, he may confidently
hope to be a blessing to the community,
for which ho labors—an ornament to the
profession in which he has already taken
a respectable stand. Z.
[From the Hollidaysburg Register.)
Ms. EDITOR:—As the time for putting
in nomination a candidate to represent
the Senatorial District composed of the
counties of Huntingdon, Bedford and
Blair is drawing nigh, it may not be
ahiiss to solicit a PUBLIC interchange
of opinion on the subject. It is one in
which the people are deeply interested,
and they ought to be fully and fairly rep
resented. No one can doubt that the
candidate ought to be selected from
among the citizens of Blair County.
Bedford, as far back as my recollec:.
tion runs, has been represented in the
State Senate by Piper,,Fore, Barclay and
Mullin, fifteen out of the last eighteen
years. For several years she has been
' represented in Congress by a Burd as
well as a Mann. She has had an Audi
tor General; a State Treasurer, two Ad , .
jutant Generals, and many other high
honors conferred on her. She may be
considered ambitious, but that is no
fault. She iN no doubt, modest and un
assuming. .
Huntingdon has been
ring the last three years by the Hon.
John Morrison—a man who faithfully
and diligently attended to her interests
as well as to to those of Bedford. I un
4erstand that she does not now put in
er claiin. She is truly Very 'modest
and retiring. She has been content to
do the voting during the last twenty
years. In 1836 she elected Maclay of
Mifflin and Merrill of Union to the Con
stitutional Convention. In 1838 she ino ,
destly receiVed a Candidate to fill the
vatancy . in the Senate of two years., for
Which she elected Maclay of Union to
the same place for a full term. In the
same year she rolled up a thousand
Whig majority to elect a candidate from
Centre county to Congress, and he was
defeated by 150 votes. It was then evi ,
dent that she must do better or suffer the
opposition to triumph. In 1840, she
creased her majority so as to elect the
same candidate to congress and Mothers
of Juniata to the Senate: In 1842 she
again polled a large majority to re=elect
the same man (Gen. Irvin) to Congress.
In 1844 she elected Blanchard, and in
1846 in connexion with Blair, she re
elected him with an increased majority,
although many Whigs voted for Wilson
on account of his locality. All the oth
, er
. eounties in the district giving major ,
ities against the Whigs. fiCrery one
will concede to Huntingdon and Blair
the high honna of doing the voting for
the Whigs. This is all well enough so
long as it may last, whether from an
honest devotion to servileness or from
; other motives. When such things may
cease to be is it not reasonable to expect
former results:
Blair dbulity, although yet in her
youth, has her rights and her interests
to attend to. She needs much nurtu
ring although a promising child.—She
refuses to cry although she may sigh
deeply. Great pains have been taken
and [tinny sacrifices made by the differ
ent nurses, but fears are entertained that
she may set up far hdrsdlf lorig ere she
arrives at the full age of Maturity: If
she should do so who could compleitil

THE Democratic Whigs of the several

delegates to represent their several town
ships in County Convention, to be held
in Huntingdon on Wednesday, the 11th
day of August, 1847, to place in nomi
nation a Ticket, to be supported at the
. election.
The Committee would urge upon the
friends of truth and order, the impor- 1
Lance of attending the primary meetings.
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
fields and faithful and untiring in his en
deavors to secure success. Neglect of
a first thity will bring coldness and care

She must maintain, her post of honor.
