We have the pleasure of a personal acquaintance
with these gentlemen, and have no hesitation in
recommending them to public favor.
05' On our first page will be found a brief
31one. We desire, as far as in us lies, to make
our readers familiar with the character and hi,-
tory of our candidates, before asking them to
deposit their votes for those candidates. In do
ing this at the outstart, we have devoted more
of our paper to politics than it is our purpose to
do hereafter. But we believe that nothing would
be more acceptable at this time than brief sketch
es of the lives and public services of those illus
trious patriots—TAYLOß & FILLMORE.
Daring our late visit to Philadelphia we pro
cured a new head for our paper, which it will
be seen graces the present number. We also
supplied ourself with a new and beautiful fount
of type, of a smaller size than heretofore used
by us for reading matter. This additional ex:
pense has been incurred for the purpose of giv
ing our subscribers a larger quantity of reading
matter, an& enabling us to meet all the demands
of our advertising customers. We hope that
these improvements may be appreciated by our
friends, and that while we strive to deaeeee pat
ronage, it may not only not diminish, but be
largely increased. Come on, then, friends, this
is the age of improvement and progress, and
just THE TIME to subscribe for the " HUN

Those indebted to us for subscription, adver

hope all who are in arrears, will consider this
call as especially directed to them. We have
been sending the Journal to a number of persons
out of this State for the lust three years, with
out receiving any payment. We hope it will
not be necessary for us to again renew this com
The meeting held on Saturday evening last to
ratify the nominations of the Whig National
Convention, was a cheering demonstration. Al
though the effort was made by some of the fright
ened leaders of the forlorn hope of Gen. Cass to
get the hard-fisted democrats who were iii the
meeting to leave it, it was no go. Santa Anna's
minions were unable to get the American sol
diers to desert the standard of " Old Rough and
Ready" in Mexico, and the efforts of Polk's
minions to keep the People away from his stan
dard here will be equally unavailing. The
People, without distinction of Perty, go for the
old Hero who " never surrenders." See pro
Cass a Federalist.
"It is not because Lewis Cass was a
federalist, or wore a black cockade when
a boy, that he is opposed by the Whigs ;
but because he has been a consistent
democrat through a long life!"—Demo
cratic Standard.
Then he did wear the black cockade, Mr.
Standard I—Well honesty is a virtue, and you
deserve some credit for acknowledging the corn.
A " consistent democrat !" Admit it—and it
only makes against him, with all honest friends
of their country. Democracy, as held by your
party, has often been accused of monarchial ten
dencies and predilections; and now we are open
ly assured that the apologist and defender of
the most notorious tyrant of our age (Louis
Philippe) has always been a " consistent dem
!" It was democracy, no doubt, that led
that corrupt monarch to shackle the Press in
France,—doubtless it was democracy, too, that
dictated the curtailment of the elective franchise
by the same hand ; and certainly he who has
been a " consistent democrat" through a long
life, would never become the flatterer of one
whose principles he could not adopt! Oh, so !
D9 - The nomination of Gen. Taylor was made
between 10 and 11 o'clock on Friday. It was
immediately telegraphed in all directions, and
at 3 o'clock in the afternoon, news was receiv
ed by telegraph, from Columbas, Ohio, that a
large meeting of probably 1000 persons had met
in that city and had responded to the nomination.
03 , C01. Toon of Ky., late U. S. Minister to
Russia, passed through this place on Friday last.
All know, who have been readers of the Hun
tingdon Journal, that the late Whig National
Convention did not select our first choice as a
candidate for the Presidency. Before the cir
cumstances which brought to the admiring view
of the People of this country the name of ZACH
ARY TAYLOR had transpired, our affections
and sympathies were entwined around the name
of another glorious old chieftain and Patriot—
WINFIELD SCOTT. True, we were not indiffer
ent to the many noble traits of character posses
sed by Gen. Taylor, and daily brought to light,
nor to the great and growing enthusiasm of the
People in various parts of the country in his be
half. But still we did not feel like surrendering
our first love without a fair and impartial hear-,
ing before the proper tribunal. That hearing
has been had, and, claiming to be a democrat, in
the true sense of the the term, we bow with
cheerfulness to the will of the majority ; and
therefore, although not present when the last
number of our paper was issued, we caused the
name of ZACHARY TAYLOR to be nailed to
our mast head. And we feel truly gratified on
returning to our post, to find that every friend
of Winfield Scott approves our course.
Being present at Philadelphia at the time the
Convention was in session, we had an opportu
nity of witnessing all its proceedings. They
were conducted in the true Whig spirit. Al-
though the excitement manifested by the " out
siders" was very great, the delegates were
calm, dignified and respectful. Every one ap
peared to be properly impressed with the im
portance of the deliberations of the body of
which he was a member. The preliminary
questions (some of which were of a very impor
tant character) were disposed of without diffi
culty. And on the evening of the second day,
the ballotting commenced. At this point the
interest manifested by the delegates and the im
mense crowd of spectators was most intense.—
As our readers are already informed, after two
ballots the Convention adjourned. On assem
bling the following morning, the " outsiders"
were largely increased, the spacious galleries
set apart for spectators, not being able to con
tain one-third of those who presented themselves
for admission. The streets in front and on one
side of the Museum therefore continued to be
densely crowded. The ballotting was renewed,
I and ere the second was gone through with it
was made manifest that ZACHARY TAYLOR
would be the nominee, which fact caused im
mense cheering in the streets.. And when the
chairman announced the result, the applause
which broke from the people in the galleries
and even the delegates, and re-echoed by the
immense concourse outside, exceeded anything
of the kind we ever witnessed. The scene was
intensely interesting. The popular heart appear
ed to have been touched. The People seemed
to consider that t . e Convention had deference to
their expressed wishes in making the nomina
tion. And they gave full vent to their joy by
repeated and most enthusiastic manifestations of
pleasure. " Three cheers for Old Zack !" " Gen:
Taylor never surrenders !" " A little more
Grupe Capt. Bragg !" " When we all pall to
gether we can't be beat !" and various other
popular expressions used in connection with
Gen. Taylor, were to be heard echoed and re
echoed through the streets during the remainder
of the day. Of course, all this enthusiasm had
its effect upon us, and by evening we were pre
pared to ratify the nomination of " Ohl Rough
and Ready" With as hearty a good will as any
Before adjourning on Friday, the Convention
nominated MILLARD FILLMORE, the ac
complished statesman of New York, as Vice
President. Notices were immediately posted
calling upon the People to assemble in Indepen
dence Square in the evening to respond to and
ratify the nominations. This meeting was the
largest ever assembled in Philadelphia. The
Baltimore Whigs were there with a delegation
of over one thousand. Four stands were erect
ed in different parts of the Square, from which
the able and popular orators of the Whig party,
from all parts of the country, continued to ad
dress the assembled thousands until after twelve
o'clock: They were frequently interrupted by
most tremendous cheering. It was the largest
and most enthusiastic meeting we ever witness
ed, and gave abundant evidence that the great
Whig Army, with TAYLOR and FILLMORE
as its leaders, intend to go into the present cam
paign with a spirit and energy that must result
in hurling from place and power those who have
so grossly betrayed their trusts, and in bringing
back the government to what it was wont to be
under the administration of Washington and the
44 earlier Presidents."
In the language of a cotemporary, in accom
plishing this benignant result, we propose to
take a decided part. We expect to be in the
thick of the fight, and while we do not hope en
tirely to escape blows, we shall, so long as our
strength remains, return all that we receive
with a hearty good will. We go into the conflict
with the * consciousness of right—with the assu
rance that our cause is the cause of truth and
justice; with the noble aim of rescuing our be
loved Constitution from those who have assail
ed it : and we go into it with a banner flouting
before us which has never been flung to the
breeze but in token of victory, and borne by a
leader who "never surrenders,"—glorious, in
vincible, all conquering ZACHARY TAY4ort
Now that peace has been concluded, the army
will be at once withdrawn from Mexico. An offi
cial order from the War Department respecting
the return of troops from Mexico, directs one
of the two Pennsylvania regiments' o be sent
to Philadelphia, and the other to Pittsburg.
The Volunteers will be the first to leave Mexi
co for home. The new regiments of the regular
army will follow next—the 11th regiment to
concentrate at Fort Hamilton, New York har
bor. The old regiments will leave last.
Every American heart will leap for joy at
the news of peace, and the return of the brave
spirits who have been bearing aloft the stars
and stripes of our Country.
Ratification Meetings,
Meetings to ratify and respond to the nomi
nations of TAYLOR and FILLMORE are being
held in every borough and village throughout
the country. The greatest enthusiasm prevails
throughout, and crowds of the rank and file who
voted for Polk in 1811 participate in these de
monstrations. We were preient at one of these
meetings held in Harrisburg on Monday evening
of last week. Although the notice was very
short it was an immense affair. 'The spirit
which animated the masses during the memora
ble Harrison campaign of 1810 appeared to be
more than revived. Several gentlemen who
voted for Polk in 1811 and for Van Buren in
1810, took seats on the stand as Vie: Presidents,
and many more of the "same sort" participated
in the proceedings. We resided in Harrisburg
during three Presidential campaigns, but never
witnessed, during the progress of either, so
large and enthusiastic a town meeting, got up
on so short notice. There is no mistaking the
signs of the times. The hearts of the People
are with "OLD Zacs"—they admire him for his
bravery—they love and honor him for his honesty
and plain Republican manners, and they will
elect him President in November next by a ma
jority unparallelled since the days of Gen. Jack
Nearly every independent paper, and even
some of the Locofoco prints, admit the election
of the Peoples' favorites ,4 OLD ZACK" and
AIILLARD FILLMORE. The signs of the
times cannot be mistaken by those who are not
blinded by prejudice. The New York Evening
Post, a Locofoco paper, and the leading organ
of the Barnburner wing of the party, says
" We now look upon the Presidential
question as virtually settled; General
Taylor will be in the Presidential chair
on the 4th of March if he is alive. He
will sweep the south from Cape May to
Key West, and from the Ohio to the
Rio Grande. Virginia will give her voice
for Taylor as surely as South Carolina.
Not one of the states, to purchase whose
support the letter of Mr. Cass on slavery
was written, will, in all probability, give
the author of that letter a vote for the
The N. Y. Journal of Commerce, thus speaks
of the nomination of Taylor and his prospects:
"We congratulate our readers and
the country on the auspicious result.—
General Taylor is the Whig candidate
for the Presidency, having been nomina
ted on the fourth trial, by a vote of 171
out of a total of 275. This nomination,
added to the many independent nomina
tions of the same gentleman in differ
ent parts of the country, and the gener
al favor of the people in his behalf, al
most without distinction of party, se
cures his election, beyond any reasona
ble doubt. With General Taylor for
President, and Peace with all the world,
the country will be safe and prosper
THE BIGGEST LIE.-The editor of the Cleve
land (Loco) paper, on hearing of the nomination
of General Cass, offered to "negotiate" fifty
dollars for the biggest Whig lie in relation to
the candidate. The Whig paper at Cleveland
says it heard several Whigs practising for the
purse. lie is the most consistent politician
in the country," said the first. He is a northern
mnn with northern principles," said another.
He wrote a repectable letter to the Chicago
Convention, added a third. All agreed that the
latter speaker was entitled to the hat, at least
until the next meeting for exercise.
The self denial evinced by President Polk, in
public, and in black and white, declining to run
again after it had been settled that he could get
no support, was very properly cheered in the
Baltimore Convention—we doubt whether any
thing else from him, except his immediate abdi
cation, could have been so cordially received—
but Vice President Dallas is whistled down with
a Spartan lack of ceremony. lie did not decline;
yet nobody proposed to re-elect hint. " Polk
and Dallas," " Oregon and Texas, "—brave
watchwords these in their day, but that day is
over. Did ever two men go in by such a con
test, and go out with such unanimity I—Ar. Y.
The Effect.
The nomination of 46 Old Zack," has had a
most melancholy effect upon the spirits of the
Cass men in this community. They had hoped
that the Whigs would again nominate Mr. Clay
anti that by means of their old weapons, false
hood and detraction they would again succeed,
and thus hold on to their fat offices four years
longer. But the nomination of Gen. Taylor has
scattered all their hopes, and they cannot con
ceal their mortification and chagrin at the dis
mal prospect before them. The doom of the of
fice holders is sealed, and bitterly do they feel it,

The Buckeyes in Line!
We have received the following letter from
one of the most prominent and influential Whigs
in Ohio. For some time connected with the ed
itorial department of a leading Whig journal in
that State, and intimately acquainted with the
local politics of the State, he may be presumed
to.write understandingly on the subject of Gen.
Taylor's nomination and prospects. His account
of the reception of the news of the nomination
of Gen. Taylor in "the heart of Ohio," is en
couraging, and must satisfy every doubtful mind
that the young giant of the West means to oc
cupy the same noble position she has always
successfully maintained—the van of the gallant
Whig army !
First Gun from Ohio—General Taylor
and the Buckeyes.
ZANESVILLE, Ohio, June 9, 1848
DEAR NEWS :—Thanks to the tele
graph, we know here (what was fifty
years ago the verge of civilization,) the
transactions of the Philadelphia Conven
tion of this day! What a triumph over
SPACE ! How TIME is annihilated
And this evening, in the heart of this
great State of Ohio, a meeting of peo
ple assembled to respond to the nomina
tions made in your city this morning !
The gathering itself was got up on the
" lightning principle." With scarce an
hour's notice the people assembled in
the spacious Court-house Square, and
were addressed most eloquently by
Judge Harper, Gen. Goddard and Hen
ry • Stanbery, Esq. Prepared, as the
Whigs of this region were, for a new
candidate—satisfied, as they would be,
to march to victory under the flag of the
Hero of Buena Vista, or that of the
Conqueror of the City of Mexico, still a
kind of 1840 enthusifism warmed the
breast of every listener, who had the
good fortune to hear the encouraging
speeches of the gentlemen above named.
There is a something—not to be gath
ered in speeches, actions or newspaper
articies—which tell us from the conduct
of opponents whether we have the ad
vantage or not. This is strikingly man
ifest here to-day. Our Locofoco friends
are in anything but a heavenly frame
of mind. They are as snappish as a
man who has a note to meet in bank,
and who is stopped on his "shining"
way by a notorious bore. In truth, they
look as though the votes were already
deposited in the ballot box, and the con
tinual reading runs thus: TAYLOR—
FILLMORE ! In this State, another
HAnaisox hurricane will sweep the
length and breadth of the land—total
destruction awaits the spoilsmen. For
even in this one short day I know a score
of Polk men who have already declared
their intention of supporting the man
who never lost a battle and who never
surrendered. Leaders, however, who
expected fat offices under Lewis Cass,
will make a spasmodic effort to poll a
respectable vote in Ohio—but they fight
as those who fight against hope. This
State is certain for Taylor, and nobody
else; which I could move by Senator
Allen himself if I had him under oath.
Flags are flying from all public places,
and the Whigs are parading the streets
with bands, of music—an unerring in
dication of the joy with which the nom
inations are hailed. And the hearty
huzza—" Old Rough and Ready !"
" Taylor forever !" meets the ear at ev
ery corner.
The Sentiments of New York.
The Whigs of New York are going into the can
vass with spirit. The feeling of dissatisfaction,
which was feared would cause trouble, has giv
way to a sense of patriotic duty. The Roches
ter Democrat says the nomination of Taylor and
Fillmore caused a considerable degree of enthu
siasm in that city. Bonfires and illuminations
prevailed during the night, and a band of music
regaled a spontaneously gathered multitude from
the balcony of the Eagle Hotel.
The Albany (N. Y.) Journal concludes
an able article upon the subject as fol
lows:—Whatever disappointment may
be felt, we cannot doubt the response of
New York. She will be found foremost
in the great struggle. The Whigs of
the Empire State, like our gallant stand
ard bearer," NEVER SURRENDER." Their
motto will now he ns it has been—" Ev
ery-thing for the Cause." Unavailing
regrets will pass away. As the day of
battle approaches, the Whigs of New
York will present an unbroken front to
the enemy. Their charge will be as
steady and irresistable as that of " Old
Zach's" troops at Buena Vista ; and the
victory will be as complete. To our
brethren elsewhere we say with confi
dence—" Murk down New York's thir
ty-six Electoral Votes for TityLon and
FILLMORE—the Whig nominees of the
National Convention."
"This nomination, we think, terminates
the Presidential campaign,—the election
of " Old Buena Vista" being as certain
as Algebra. The sooner, therefore, the
keeper of the White House puts " Old
Zechariah" on the door-plate the bettor.
LA:SD AIIEAD AT LAST !—At the great Barnbur
ner meeting in New York, Mr. Cambreleng, in
his speech to the immence gathering of the a Old
Guard of New York Democracy," as he called
them, declared that for two years past Mr. Polk
and Mr. Marcy had been very busy at work to
make a Prelident for these United States; and
in that worn they had been very successful; they
had actually made a President for the next four
years. Anti the man (continued Mr. Cambre
leng) whom they have placed in that important
Grand Ratification Meeting in Old
Huntingdon t •
On Saturday evening last a grand Ratification
Meeting of the People of this borough e was held
at the house of Alex. Carmon, to respond to the
nominations of the Whig National Convention.
It came together at very short notice, given
through handbills posted during the forenoon of
the same day. It was a glorious assemblage,
and gave abundant ev'dence that in old Hunting.
don, as elsewhere, the popular heart is with the
glorious old Hero who “nerce surrenders."
The meeting was called to order by A. W,
Benedict, Esq., and organized by the appoint
ment of the following officers:
President—DAVlD SNARE, Esq.
Vice Presidents :
John Armitage, John Flenner,
William Rothrock, John J. Bumbaugh,
Geo. A. Steel, Geo. W. Whittaker,
Elias Bartol, William Harman.
W. S. Africa,
Edward Callahan:
Edward Summers, Wm. H. Peightal.
The room being entirely too small to contain
the large concourse of people assembled, the
meeting adjourned to the open air, and, after
being opened by three cheers for ZACHARY
TAYLOR and three more for MILLARD
FILLMORF., was ably and eloquently addressed
CORM, and J. SEWELL. STEwAnT, Esq'rs,who,e
remarks were frequently interrupted by enthu
siastic bursts of appladse.
A. W. Benedict, Esq. read the following re•
Resolved, That the nomination of Gen.
ZACHARY TAYLOR, by the \Vhig
National Convention, meets a hearty re
sponse from the henrts of the People of
old Huntingdon, and as "lee never sur
renders," so we pledge ourselves not to
surrender, until old Zacit shnll receive
a a vole of thanks," for his services, that
shall not be qualified or disgraced by
any proviso.
Resolved, That as his enemies have
found him "Ready" with his pen and
sword, and "Rough" in the encountre,
so will they still find the old Warrior
and Civilian a "Rough and Ready" can
didate for the people—those who care
neither for parties, or partisans—for he
has " no enemies to punish, DO friends
to reward"—his highest aim, his coun
try's prosperity, he will only be the
President of the People and not•of the
party ; with Washington for his guide,
he will " seek no favor or shrink from
no responsibility ;" and we here award
him our gratitude for Isis gallant bear
ing in the field of carnage ; and the more
sacred attribute, which adorns his life
and conduct—humanity.
Resolved, That in Isis plain Republican
manners—stern and unyielding sense of
right and wrong—lsis calm and sterling
judgment—and Isis goodness and great
ness of heart, we find all and everything
which is now needed to bring back our
Government to its original beauty and
Resolved, (in the language of the Phil
adelphia Ratification Convention,) That
Gen. Taylor, in saying that had he vo
ted in 1844., he would have voted the
Whig Ticket, gives us the assurance,—
and no better is needed from a consistent
and truth-speaking man,—that his heart
was with us at the crisis of our political
destiny, when HENRY CLAY was our
candidate, and when not only Whig
principles were well defined and closely
asserted, but Whig measures depended
on success. The heart that was with
us THEN, is With US NOW, and we have a
soldier's word of honor, and a life of
public and private virtue as the security.
Resolved, (in the language of the Har
risburg Convention of February 22d,
1848,) That as Gen. Taylor controlled
the field of Buena Vista by the influence
of his moral power, the American peo
ple will "reinforce" him at the ballot
box, in the conviction that while " they
all pull together they can't be whipped."
Resolved, That we hail with unaffected
delight the nomination fur the Vice Pres
idency, of MILLARD FILLMORE of
Now York, whose devoted patriotism,
stern integrity, enlarged capacity, and
rare abilities us a statesman, were so
recently endorsed by the freemen of his
own State to the tune of 38,000 major
ity! _
Resolved, That this meeting recom
mend the immediate formation of a
"Rough and Ready Club" in this bor
ough; and respectfully recommend the
friends of Gen. Taylor throughout the
county to call meetings in their respec
tive townships for the purpose of form
ing clubs and effecting a thorough or
On motion, the resolutions were unanimously
adopted, and the meeting adjourned with three
cheers for Tim... & FILLSORE.
Axcmyr APPLE TR.E.—The Newark Adver
vertiser states that R. L Colt, Esq., of Patter
son New Jersey, has recectly, in the exercise
of a reverent horticultural taste, procured some
grafts from the old English Pearname apple tree,
still standing on the Charter Oak Pallace at Hart
ford, and which was brought over by George
Willis, in 1637—being now more than two cen
turies old ! The Venerable tree is gradually
decaying, but it bore a few apples last year.
Mr. C. intends to perpetuate the fruit.
