which he is offering at prices that can't be beat.
The "Boss" is a Shoemaker and can therefore
make a judicious selection of stock. We com
mend him to the patronage of all wanting well
made and very cheap articles in his line of trade.
See advertisement.
Gno. GWIN is offering merchandize at his
popular stand, cheaper than ever.
JOHN G. LEMMON & Co. are prepared to give
all who may favor them with a call, correct like

second story of the Court House.
Attention is invited to the card of .I..ins H.

Our Victory at Home.
Taylor Men of Huntingdon countyl you. did'
nobly in the contest which was brought to a
close on Tuesday last. You taught the minions
of Locofotoiem that you could not be VOTED
DOWN, by the COLONIZED yore Which had
been brought into our county for the purpose or
controlling the election .' You gave n manly re
kuke to rascality and fraud that will be long
remembered. You iutve shown them that you
can do your own voting as well as pay your
own taxes, without the aid of men hired for die
purpose of choosing officers for you. You have
made a clean sweep. You have aided in elect
ing a whig Governor, a Whig Canal Commis
sioner, a Whig Congressman, and triumphantly
elected your whole Whig County Ticket, and
FREEMEN of brave "Old Huntingdon," you
did nobly—but you did not put forth your whole

We cannot more appropriately announce our. I

ing the folldwing fiom the North American of
A sViendid Whig triumph has been achieved,
wfifitever may be the result in detail—a triumph
Which has sealed the death warrant of Locofoco
ism, and given an impulse to Whig principles
which will go on until Pennsylvania assumes the
front rank in our column, and locks the proud
arch, formed by a ,grilaxyof glorious Whig States.
Now that the election is over, we are free to
say our friends have exceeded our most san
guine anticipations. That they even more sad
ly disappointed the expectations of the Locofo
cos, is attested by the confident predictions
which filled the partisan press in every quarter
of the Union. We did expect a close contest,
and we felt unlimited confidence, if the Whig
party was true to itself and every member of it
realized his responsibility, that we should break
the ranks of our opponents, and if we did not
carry off the banner, we should at least deserve
to wear it. They have done more than this—
they have discharged their own duty and brought
others to a sense of what was due to the coun
try, the State and themselves.
We are not able to announce the result of the
gubernatorial election in an authentic form: but•
from the evidence before us, we feel justified in
. claiming W. F. JOHNSTON as the Governor
r of Pennsylvania. Among the substantial fruits
. of our victory are a Whig Legislature, thereby
. securing a Whig U. S. Senator, a majority of
I Whig Congresemen and a Whig State Adminis
. tration. This result may be regarded as the
, redemption of Pennsylvania, an achievement of
, vast political consequence in itself, but of still
, higher importance, when it may justly be re
garded as determining the Presidential election.
, Pennsylvania has elected ZACHARY TAYLOR
President of the United States—nothing now re
mains but to fulfil the forms of on election on
the 7th day of November. In the face of this
victory Locofocoism cannot rally.—ln loosing
. .
Pennsylvania, it has lost its citadel, and with it
all hopes of regeneration. To the honest mass
es, the coliers, mechanics and working men, is
the Whig party especially indebted for this tri
umph. In all the mining and manufacturing
counties, there have been large gains among
those who have been heretofore cheated into
the support of "Democracy" under its decep
tive disguises, but who have at last awakened
to a sense of their wrongs and themen by whom
they were imposed. This example will cheer
the sons of toil everywhere for the result in
Pennsylvania is a victory of working men.

The locofoco papers • make a great parade of
the ‘. 4 .teile" of general Cass in making Indian
treaties while. Governor of Michigan territory.

The Ivry in which it was done is obviohis

Superintendent of Indian afrairs from 1813 id
