this call will be responded to by every district
in the county we do not doubt. That a some
what diti . erent policy from that which prevailed
on at least one former occasion of this kind will
be adopted, is our sincere hope. Let those who
undertake to represent the people, in the per
formance of this duty, take care that their wish
es, and not the views of particular candidates
for office, govern their action. Let the general
welfare of the Party, and not the selfish and in
terested views of the few, predominate. In short;
let the errors of the Past be carefully avoided,
and the Future promises nothing but victory to
the Whig Standard in Huntingdon county.
To our friends in the different townships we
would therefore respectfully suggest: select as
your delegates men of known devotion to the
cause—of sufficient inte4ligence to understand
the sentiments of their district, and of honesty
enough to faithfully carry out those sentiments.
When such delegates are selected, pledges or
instructions are not necessary. It is better to
leave them untrammeled; for we have high au
thority for saying that the man who cannot be
trusted without pledges, is not safe when he

necessary to go into an election for Governor in
October. This fact lends additional importance
to the coming campaign. To elect a Whig
Governor, in addition to placing honest old
ZACHARY TAYLOR in the Presidentialchair,
would render our ancient Commonwealth, what
nature has designed she should be, one of the
most prosperous and important States in this
Union. Let us, then, fellow Whigs of Hunting
don county, prepare so to act in the coming
County Convention, as to infuse the greatest
harmony and concert of action into our ranks ;
and thus enable us, in October and November
to roll up such majorities as will carry dismay
into the ranks of the spoilsmen and gladden the
heart of every true friend of the interests of
Pennsylvania and the Union at large. We can
do it, if we will.
Among the first duties of Governor Johnston,
will be the appointment of an Adjutant General,
to take the place of G. W. Bowman, Esq.,
whose term of office expired on the 15th inst.
We know of no gentleman who could be selected
for this office more universally acceptable to
the people; than would be the oppointment of
Capt. SAMUEL D. KARNS. Capt. K. has
