will be able to boast a list surpassed by but

The last Globe informs us that the Democ
racy in this section of the State take the elec
tion of Gen. Taylor "cooly"—and adds—. our
friends appear rather pleased than otherwise !"
Here is an admission that we did not expect
from the Globe. We always said that nothing
but the most rigid Party drill could prevent
honest democrats from voting for Gen. Taylor.
And notwithstanding this—notwithstanding all
the appeals of the Globe and Party orators,
many of them did cast their votes for him. And
we verily believe, that if the election was held
over to-morrow, Gen. Taylor would receive in
this county double the majority which was cast
for him on the 7th ult. All consider him honest
and patriotic, and nothing but the most vile mis
representation and defamation of his character
by Locofoco office-holders and office seeker.,
prevented the honest portion of the democrats
from going for him in mass. And it will be
some time before they can be deceived and hum
bugged again out of their honest sentiments.—
Those democrats who voted for Gen. Taylor
are well pleased that they done so; and if Gen.
Taylor piomptly dismisses from the public ser
vice James Buchanan—(better known as ten
cent Jimmy) and all the smaller lights who
have used the power and patronage of their
places to destroy the industrial interests of the
country, their delight will be greatly increased.
We therefore agree with the Globe that the
People generally are rather pleased than other
wise" with the election of Gen. Taylor. And
we will predict, that, notwithstanding the ap
peals of Locofoco papa's to titer party to do all
in their power to embarrass the incoming
Administration, the honest masses of the
country will be better pleased with Gen. Tay
lor's manner of administering the government
than they now are at his election.
A Tempest in a Tea-Pot.
The chivalry of the State of South Carolina
is again aroused, and she threatens to blow the
Union to atoms. The dissatisfaction is on ac
count of the result of the Presidential election.
Gen. Cass was her favorite, slavery extension
candidate, and she cast her vote for him, and
because a majority of the other States of the
Union did not do likewise, "she has been out
raged, and the constitution is likely to be viola
ted and trampled upon by the Northern barba
rians.' " This State, the most ultra Southern
in her views, of any in the Union, looks upon
the election of Gen. Taylor, and pro perly we
think too, as a triumph of the North, on the
Wilmot Proviso question. A meeting was re
cently held in Charleston, in which their griev
ances were the subject of consideration and
complaint. It was there unanimously recom
mended, that the Legislature of this pop-gun
State, instruct their Senator. and request their
Representatives in Congress, to withdraw from
their respective Houses, should the North at
tempt, by means of the Wilmot Proviso, to
grasp for its own use, all the territory acquired
from Mexico in the late war.
South Carolina is, in her own opinion, of more
Importance than the other twenty-nine States.
What a terrible calamity it would be to the na
tion if she should refuse to be represented ?
The only way will be for the other States to
get along as well as they can without her, and
we do not btlieve that government wilt abso
lutely stop, in consequence of her absence from
the halls of Congress. One thing she should
remember, that some of her " heroic eons"
came near getting their necks in a halter, some
years ago, in consequence of her absurd abstrac
tions, and that event will probably take place if
she puahea her fooleries much farther. She

We neglected heretofore to mention that WO
Hirrcitiusori the new Commissioner elect, had
assumed the duties of hie office the first week
of the Npvember Court. The board now con
sists of Messrs. Cummins, Oreeniand and Hut
T. H. CnEMER, Esq., assumed the duties of
the Prothonotary's office, and M. F. CAMPBELL,
those of Register and Recorder, on Friday !ast.
The new officers are all competent and wor
thy men, and we think we can safely predict,
will make obliging and popular officers.
The retiring Commissioner, DANIEL TEAGUt,
Esq., has made a faithful and deservedly popu
lar officer, and retires with credit to himself
and those who elected him.
Jss. Sorrec, Esq., the retiring Prothonotary,
has served the People of this county for nine
pence by election, and we think one year by
appointment. As an officer, he had but few
equals, and as a man, universally respected.—
We think no officer ever had more popularity
with the People, and enjoyed their confidence
to a greater extent, than did Mr. Steel during
his whole term of service. He retires with
the good wishes and respect of all parties.
JACOB MILLER, Esq., retires from the Reg
ister's office with the consciousness of having
done his duty faithfully and well. It because
our duty to oppose his re-election, but still it
gives us pleasure to say, that we have rarely
seen a more competent public officer. We ne
ver, we believe, said anything to the contrary.
As a penman, Mr. Miller is truly remarkable,
for a man of his age. Ile leaves the office there
lore, in the bent possible condition.
You cannot pick up a Locofoco paper that is
not tilled with speculations as to who will fill
the offices under Gen. Taylor. Indeed, it would
seem from their language, that Locofoco lead
ers look upon elections merely as a scramble
for office ; and if they could only retain their
places, they would not care what principles
prevailed, or who was elected to carry them
out. Notwithstanding their abuse of General
Taylor, these fellows are now mean enough to
supplicate the old Hero to continue them in
office. They say he promised not to be proscrip
tive, and cannot therefore consistently turn
them out. Well, the poor fellows almost excite
our sympathy. We can hardly find it in our
heart to disturb their illusory anticipations.—
They are, generally speaking, por.yricat. PAU
PERS, who cannot make a living any other way
than in office. Politics has been their trade so
long, that they have no taste and indeed little
qualification for any other calling. Labor,
they despise—they consider themselves too
veil raised for that. Hence, if they should be
turned out of office, their condition becomes
somewhat desperate. But, heartless'as it may
appear on our part, we will have to whisper to
these public pensioners that while Gen. Tay
lor's administration will not be proscriptive, it
will be essentially Democratic. And rotation
in office being, a cardinal principle of Democ
rucy, the men who have been filling the offices
of the Government for the last twenty years
will have to make room for a fresh stock. And
what will operate with still mote terrible effect
upon the present incumbents, is the fact, that
Gen. Taylor has declared, that he will appoint
none but HONEST and CAPABLE men to
office. This will come as near making a clean
sweep of those now holding place, as any friend
of Gen. Taylor can desire. It will decapitate
the whole crew, from the majority of the
"country Postmasters" up. So mote it be.
Resisting the Public Will.
The political complexion of the Un ited
States Senate, at the commencement of Gen.
Taylor's administration, will most probably be
—Democrats, 35 ; Federalists, 21; Abolition
ists, 1. So it will appear that the Federalists
eon :dot possibly succeed in restoring the Tariff
of 1812, the repealing of the Independent Treas
ury, or of carrying any of their wild schemes,
even if Gen. Taylor should recommend them.
and it is J o, .it all certain that he will."—Mtn
}fere, then, we have a distinct avowal that
the Locofocos of the Senate will resist all at
tempts to pass measures fur the relief of the
People. Well, so be it. But we can inform
them in advance, that notwithstanding their
contempt of the popular will, if the course in
dicated by the above paragraph be adopted, such
a burst of indignation will roll over the length
and breadth of this land, as will soon set mat
ters right in the Senate. They may postpone,
but we defy them to defeat the will of the Peo
AN OLD ADAGE,
There is an old and true adage which reads
somewhat thus "Barking dogs seldom bite."
We quote it at this time for the consolation of
those of our friends who occasionally hear fu.
rious threats from certain two legged puppies
about the terrible castigations we are to receive
at their hands.
17' Mr. Gentry, a member of Congress re
cently stated that he was in favor of the Wilmot
Proviso, as the only hope and alternative of sa

Taylor ought not veto the Wilmot Proviso.—

are a farce.
That a gross fraud is intended by the locos, is,
we think, admitted in the following from the
St. Mary's Sentinel, a locofoco paper. The
editor of the Sentinel thinks, that as the votes
for Governor are to be counted by a Legislature
having a democratic majority, it is not unlikely
that John B. Weller will be declared to have
been elected Governor. Locofoco political ar
ithmetic can declare Col. Weller elected, though
the people elected Seabury Ford by a majority
of 343 votes.
Celebration at Hollidaysburg.
Our Blair county friends celebrated the glo
rious political victories of the people, achieved
in the election of TAYLOR, FILLMORE and Jolts-
STON, in Hollidaysburg, on Thursday last, by a
public dinner. An immense concourse of peo
ple, we are informed, were present on the oc
casion. Everything passed off in the best pos
sible manner. A Torch Light procession came
off in the evening which is represented as hav
ing been an imposing and truly magnificent
affair. Blair county Whigs are hard to beat in
affairs of this kind.
Celebration at Washington.
The friends of Taylor and Fillmore had a
torch light procession in Washington city on
Tuesday eveninglast in honor of the triumph of
true democracy. The Presidential mansion was
handsomely lighted up on the occasion.—Every
window was crowded—the entire route was
thronged with persons of all classes and all
kinds of politics.—The Locofocos acknowledged
the grandeur of the pageant, and seemeddelight
ed to see their Whig friends enjoy it so finely.
Free Soilers and Slave-holders went arm inarm
engaged in pleasant conversation, whilst booming
cannon, flying rockets, waving handkerchiefs,
and enthusiastic cheers, added to the liveliness
of the scene. On reaching the Quarters of
Major General Scott, opposite the Treasury de
partment, the air rent with cheers and a salute
was fired. Passing the 4, Temperance Hotel,"
on Third street, the picture of Major General
Butler was beautifully festooned and. illumina
ted, and the Star Spangled Banner floated in the
breeze; the entire procession cheered enthusi
astically. The spirit evinced by all was alto
gether a much more commendable one than is
usually displayed on such occasions. Instead
of groans and hootings, nothing was heard but
cheers. This is the way political parties should
act, and when both are governed by proper mo
tives and principles it is the way they do act.
