Select School.
By reference to our advertising columns, it
will be seen that Mr. J. A. lIALL is about open- i
ing, in Huntingdon, a Select School. In this
community, where Mr. H. has taught for sev
eral years, he enjoys the enviable reputation of
being the best Teacher ever connected with
our Schools. In addition to his peculiar faculty
of imparting instruction to , the young, he is one
of the best discipbnarians we ever knew. He
is a gentleman of inflexible probity and high
moral character. And we have no hesitation*
in assuring Parents that they can commit thefr
children to his charge, with the utmost conk ,
dente that they wilt not only be rapidly advan
ced in all the various branches of English Edu
cation, but that their morals will also receive
that care and attention so essential to their fu
ture happiness, respectability and prosperity ire
life. Hence, it gives us great pleasure to com
mend Mr. School to public attention
and patronage.
More Rioting on the Railroad,
Another disgraceful Riot has been going on
rmong the laborers employed on the Pa. Rail
road, in the neighborhood of Birmingham, this
county, during the most part of the past week.
During its progress, several persons were badly
injured, and among them we learn that Mr.
Gillespie, a contractor has been seriously inju
red. Shanties were also torn down, and consid
erable property destroyed. There appears to
be no other cause for these disgraceful scenes
than an old feud which exists between Irishmen
known as Connaught men and Far-Downs.—
Several arrests, we are happy to learn, have
been made. On Friday last Sheriff Crownover
summoned an armed posse and proceeded to the
scene of artists. On his arrival there, the riot
ing ceased, and many of the participants fled
to the mountains-
These riots are dangerous and should be sup
at all hazards. If foreigners wlio come
here to labor will persist in violating our laws,
the authorities should give them stsch a demon
stration of their power as will learn them here
after to respect them. Let the orders, on all
these occasions, be "Mono GRAPE," and our
word for it, the peace of the community wilt
not long be disturbed by these senseless and
unmeaning Riots.
EC7 — MINT. Uszarre," is the title of a
new literary paper, started at Bristol, Bucks
county, Pa., by WM. Blum, Esq., an ad and
esteemed acquaintance of ours. Mr. B. is a
very worthy man, a good Printer, and' a man of
excellent literary taste and ability. He will
doubtless make a good paper, and we wish him
the most abundant success in his enterprise.
Ice Cream,
Mr. John Cunningham has opened a new Ice
Cream Saloon in the lower room of the Sons of
Temperance Hall, immediately opposite the
PEst Office. The room is handsomely fitted up,
and we can bear testimony that his Cream is
very fine.

Lippard , s Letter.
The Opposition papers, says the York Repub. i
lican, are just now rejoicing in, and gloating
over a letter addressed to Gen. TAYLOR by a
certain GEORGE LIPPARD, author of the Quo- .
kyr City" and other works of prurient notori
ety, in which the modest writer takes the Old
Hero to task for his conduct as President, and
charges him with not having kept his pledges
to him, the said George. It seems that Lir-
PARD called himself last fall a 66 Taylor Demo
crat"—a style of politician not at all admired
by the very papers which use his letter for po
litical effect—" loving the treason, but despi
sing the traitor." He must needs write a letter
to Gen. Tavi.oa too; and having received an
answer, displayed his honorable principle by
publishing it, though marked " confidential,"
by way of showing no doubt what correspond
ence he, GEORG. LIPPARD, had with great men.
Not having been called to the Cabinet, nor re
ceived any appointment, or even a suit of old
clothes, George waxes angry and abusive, and
sets to work to exterminate Gen. TAYLOR with
this letter now going the rounds of the Loco
foco press. The following anecdote shows that
TOM CORWIN understood George edzoeily : •

as well attended as any in the city, and stran

The editor says :
LIPPARDIANA.--We have not allowed the
political diatribe of this eccentric individual,
addressed to President Taylor, to grace our
columns—nor is it likely that we shall alter our
mind hereafter. We strongly suspect, that a
morbid thirst for notoriety has dictated the

The Intelligencer is right. Lippard is evi

and wrote this letter, besliming the great name
of ZACHARY TAYLOR with abuse, with no other
view than to gain notoriety. But it will be no
toriety followed by the contempt of all honora
ble men. George knew that the locofoco press
would seize with avidity a letter of this kind,
and; though it might go forth from a monkey
they would publish it as the effusion of a man
of character and distinction. He knew it would
ensure notorieig,--even if it was a notoriety
which high-minded and honorable men would
revolt at. We are happy to observe, however,
that at least one respectable Locofoco paper
declines to be used by George to gratify his

he will dipahtless be out in a long letter abusing

Removals—The Globe,
The Globe is still whining over the removals
from office now making by the National Ad
ministration. But the editor appears to have
no sympathy for the victims decapitated by the
Locofoco Canal Commissioners, last spring.--
A bout thirty Canal and Railroad officers lost
their heads under the operation of the Long
strolls and Painter guillotine, yet we have to
hear the first word of complaint from the Globe
on the subject. And the editor even declines
to tell us why Mr. Cunningham was removed
from the Collector's office at this place. Was
he not " honest and capable I" If so, why wan
he removed I Great sympathy is expressed by
the Globe for one of the Brown's--an old office
holder, and a blackguard to boot—but the editor
has not one little word of sympathy for his
neighbor, Mr. Cunningham, who had only been
in office three years, and is a very respectable
nian. Now if the editor of the Globe is honest
in his opposition to removals, why does he not
denounce the Canal Commissioners for the re
movals they have made I He is aware that
mare than thirty heads were taken off last
Spring by the Board, yet up to this time he has
been as silent as death on the subject! This is
in striking contrast with the hue and cry he is
raising over every removal made by the Nation
al Administration, and can only be accounted
for by the conclusion that the Globe is not ad
verse to removals, but is only opposed to Whigs
being appointed to any of the offices of the
Tory Opposition to (den. Taylor.

expression never used by Gen. Taylor, and we
defy the Locofoco papers which attribute it to
him to produce the proof. The noble sentiment
used by the old Hero, in his ietter to Captain

the Locofoco press, is as follows :
"I have no private purposes to accomplish--
no party projects to build up—no enemies to
punish—nothing to serve but my country."

issued the following Circular Letter, the object
of which will be seen on its perusal :

the former symptoms, if he will now call in a
physician, and take proper remedies, he is near
ly sure of recovery, more sure than a person
attacked with fever, ar other ordinary disorders. •
If, however, he neglects these forewarnings,
violent cramp succeeds, and then there is rral
The only peril, therefore, that exists, arises
from the carelessness of the public, superindu
cad by the gentleness of the disease in its ear
stages. If a man is attacked with the
cramp, and dies in a few hours, it is said that he
fell a victim to the cholera in a single day ! yet,
in reality, if enquiry was instituted, it would
be found that he had been laboring under the
premonitory stages of the disease for several
days, and that the cramp, which was considered
the first, was in reality the last assault of the
enemy. The lassitude accompanying the car •
tier progress of the disorder, joined to the ex
treme mildness of the symptoms, induces fre
quently a criminal carelessness, which leads to
the most fatal results. Yet, if the approaches
of the disease are watched, they are certain to
yield to proper and timely treatment.
Staveri Expiring,
How can Slavery continue its miserable CXlB. '

the North solidly arrayed against it, and bold

pling it under foot in the very "house of its
friends 1" The severest blows it now rec eives
are idthe Slave States. Mr. Robinson of Frank
lin, Ky., in a speech delivered in the late Eman
cipation Convention at Frankfort, Ky., hit off
the defenders of slavery in that State with a .
good deal of litirnor and point :
The opposition to our views is inconsider-,
able if we have a fair hearing. There are but
few who admire the shivery of Kentucky and
with many of that few it is a sentiment rather
than a principle. Their birth-place is Old Vir
ginia—there they spent their .youth. Slavery
was there, and everything in Virgin:a was per
fect. You know, sir, the strength of this reel
ing among Virginians. The emigrant from
even those portions of it which slavery has des
olated—from the eastern sand hills—where the.
people subsist one half the year on fish and
oysters, and the other half on past recollection
—amid rill the fertility of the west—sighs for
the sand hills and fish and oysters of Old Vir
' ginia. With others this love of slavery is nei•
Cher a sentiment nor principle—they, from
mere habit, cry olit against us, abolition I dan
ger to property ! !..:- . and, those who cry loudest
are those who never had a negro to abolish, and'.
unless their habits of ihdustry shall vastly ;
change, never will ; while the largest portior
raise the hue and cry merely fhipllitical effect,
and for fear of mere party interests."
The San Antonio Texian mentions a
fearful increase of supposed suicide,
though we doubt whether so many sud
den deaths are Justly chargeable to this
cause. The papers say: "A recklessness

in many instances; the horrors of death, •
or the fearful consequences of a here
after seems to make but a slight impres
sion upon the minds of many, who are
daily rushing headlong into eternity.
Within the last four or five days not less.
than five, and some report seven, bodies'
have been found in the San Antonio river
and the ditch leading from the Alamo
to the head of the river, thought to have
been drowned.—The names of two only
have been ascertained—Davenport and'•
Frazer, the latter employed in this office.
WHAT A Woms,—ln Chicago lately, a wo
man while intoxicated, demolished the windows
and stock in trade of a grog-shop keeper, beat
him, and then sallied into the steett, where she
drubbed a big Dutchman, and whipped half-a
dozen constables who attempted to wrest her.
Delectable wife she'd make.
Editorial State Convention.
The undersigned publishers of Newspapers
in the 17th Congressional District, concuring
with their editorial brethren generally in the
necessity of having an Editorial State Conven
tion in Pennsylvania, for the purpose of correc
ting numerous abuses now practiced to the pos
itive injury of Country publishers,. respectfully
recconunend to the Fraternity that they meet
in• State Convention at Harrisburg, on THURS
DAY the Bth day of NOVEMIIHR, 1849, and earn
estly urge a general attendance.
The Postage Reform tuner be effected during.
the next Session of Congress. A Law whose
practical effect is to make the rich richer and
the poor poorer, cannot be too soon erased from
our National Statute Book, and we deem the•
time reccommanded for a State Convention an
auspicious one for urging effectually upon our
I National Congress the necessity and expedien
'cy of a speedy and permenant change. This
and other Reforms immediately affecting the in
terests of the Country Press, demand the
prompt and serious attention of the Fraternity,
and we call upon our brethren throughout the
State to act with us harmoniously and energet
ically, feeling confident that by so doing the
Country Press can be placed upon a.praper plat
