As to our own Borough of Huntingdon, we
do not as yet, of course, pretend to compare,
with either Harrisburg or York. But we do
not by any means despair. The time, we think,
is not far distant, when the business of our
Borough will receive such an impetus as will
cause her to take a stand among the first class
Boroughs in Pennsylvania. We already have
the Canal, and will in a few months have the
great Penn'a Railroad running through our
town. In addition to these, every indication
favors the belief that we will soon have a Rail
road from this place through the rich and flour
ishing Valley of Woodcock, to the great Coal
Region of Broad Top. The immense advan
tage to Huntingdon, of this road, can hardly be
realized at present. It will make our borough
the transshipping point of the most valuable
coal beds in the State--bituminous coal, acid to
he of the very best gnajity for the manufacture
of Gas--and from which it will give us great
pleasure to supply the Gas Compeniee of Phila.
delphia, York, Harrisburg, &c., &c. From the
abundance df water power in our vicinity, and
the healthfulness of out borough and surround
country, caused, no doubt, by the pure,
fresh mountain air which we inhale, Huntingdon
will also doubtless soon become a manufactu
ring place. Indeed, we knowof no better and
kw as favorable locations for a Cotton Factory,
or any other manufacturing enterprize, as our
own, nattnaliy, highly favored borough. In
point of capital, few towns, even of much lar
ger population, can begin to compare With us.
All will agree, then, that as regards facilities
we are singularly favored. And if our citizens
will but arouse from the inertness which has
so long enslaved their energies, Huntingdon can
soon be made to rise, Phoenix like, into impor-
tance and greatness.
While we admit, then, our inability to com
pare favorably at present, in point of population
and appearance with either Harrisburg or York,
we think we have ample cause for hope in the
future. And ere long we expect to be able to
say to our friend COCHRAN, of the Republican,

It appears but a brief time since the subject
of the above notice, (now Gov. Ramsey) was
an apprentice to the Carpenter trade, in the
borough of Harrisburg. By his own unaided
exertions, he not only educated himself, but
contributed, at the same time, to the support of
an indigent widowed mother. His career was
onward and upward, until he has reached the
responsible and highly honorable post of Gov
ernor of a rich and rapidly improving territory.
II:s history is full of encouragement to young
men. No matter how poor a young man may
start, in a country like this, if he has industry,
perseverance, sobriety, and integrity, the high
est stations in the Government are not beyond
his reach. Mr. Ramsey started in life, sut
rounded by no circumstance to aid him, save his
own energy. But merit is sure of its reward.
It far outstrips wealth and family influence, let
who like say to the contrary. The career of
the young man, without merit, who is forced
into high positions in society by the aid of
wealth and family influence, is never brilliant
and always brief. Merit, then, is the only safe
bests for a young man to rely upon. It is the
only thing which will advance him permanently.
Young men, strive then, to attain merit. It is
the sure and never failing passport to promo
This fearful pestilence still continues its rav
ages in many parts of our country. In New
York during the past week it has been on the
increase. In Philadelphia and Baltimore, sev
eral cases have been reported, and in the West
ern cities and towns it is largely on the increase.
In St. Louis, a despatch says, the average
deaths from Cholera, should all the Cemetries
report, would appear to be about one hundred
per day In Cincinnati it is also fearfully on
the increase, and is attacking all classes. As
high as 5.4 deaths in one day have been reported.
Ae yet, no cases have been reported in the
interior of our State. We advise all however,
to use the proper precautionary measures.
A Sensible Opinion.
The Philadelphia Bulletin, which leans to
wards Locofocoism, although not a member of
the radical school, in speaking of the course of
the Administration in appointing Whigs to offi
ces held by Locofocos, says:
We do not think that President Taylor has
shown either want of talent or want offairnes4
in turning out men who, previous to his election,
abused him in the most libellous and disgrace
ful manner. On the contrary, we lament the
want of decency and highmindedness in those
office-holders who, while slandering a candidate
before election, would stoop afterwards to retain
I office under him—nay, WHINE FOR IT."
We commend the contemplation of the good
sense in the above paragraph to the trailers !

trust he will eee the propriety of doing so before
long. The people expect to see the business of
the board attended to.

Alleghany City Scrip.
On Tuesday of week before last the city of
Allegheny sold 21 of her " Diamond" lots, at
auction. They brought $57,700. Nineteen
lots, which are all that remain, were to be sold
last Tuesday, and were expected to bring about
$45,000. This sale will absorb $lOO,OOO of
Allegheny scrip—nearly half of the amount
now in circulation.

Massachusets has nearly 800,000 inhabitants ;
is rich in labor, wealth and prosperity—her peo
ple are all producers or manuiacturers. They
live in peace and plenty, and command the at
tention and homage of the people not only of sis
ter States, but of foreign countries also. Of
them her people buy the row material and man
ufacture all they consume, profit by their own
industry, reap the earnings of those who bow to
their skill and enterprise, pocket the interest
upon all their own and mu,ll of their neighbor's
capital, draws within her borders the cream of
enterprise, talent and learning, and rewards all
according to their dues, owing the world around
them nothing, and sees with a clear and un
clouded vision nought but success alid iirdsperty
Why is this 1 Thu.— ,
She pays $1,25 per bushel of wheat, and gives
in pay 22 yards of lirdwn sheeting at 5 cents per
yard. She pays 60 rents for a bushel of corn
and gives in pay 1 yard of super. sattinett. the
pays $12,00 for a bbl. of beef, and gives in pay
yards of super. broad cloth.
Now take a western State; Illinois, for in-
stance. She is rich in labor, natural soil, and
heaven's elements of prosperity. Her people I
are all producers from the soil, but nothing from
manufactures. They live ,n fear only of crow.
ded corn markets, and accept of the purchase of
her commodity by people from sister States as a
boon of gratuity. Of others she buys all her
manufactured goods, expends the profit of her
own labor in transportation charges out and in,
loses her surplus capital, wastes her enterprise,
talent and learning, owes every body, rewards
none beyond a bare living and hangs upon the fu
ture with nothing but hope.
She sells wheat at GO cents a bushel, and takes
her pay in 6 yards of sheeting at 10 cents per t
yard. She sells corn for 20 cents a bushel, and
takes her pay in sattinetts at the rate of $1,50
per yard. She sells beef for $l, per barrel,
and takes her pay in 1 yard of broadcloth.
Well-- , what now 1 Simply this : the agricul
turist in Massachusetts recieve 25 yards of
sheeting for a bushel of wheat, while the Illi
nonin receives but 6 : the difference is, say 3 or
400 per cent. The first receives 1 yard of good
sattinett for a bushel corn; the latter only one
seventh of a yard ; or a difference of 600 to 700
per cent. The first receives 6 yards of broad
cloth for a barrel of beef, while the latter gets
only one yard ; or a difference of GOO per cent.
But, says a knowing one, the Massachusetts'
man cannot raise the bushel of wheat, corn, &c.,
to buy the 400, 500 or 600 per cent more in dif
ference ! For the sake of argument, grant it, if
you please, that he cannot equal you. Yet his
own family, his son and daug:lter, receive more
profit for their labor in manufacturing the 23
yards that bought one bushel of wheat from you
than you did in growing 1 bushel for the 6 yards
you received, by two hundred per cent.; while
the difference between the intrinsic worth of the
6 yards you receive and the 12 yards they paid
for the same amount of sustenance in each case,
is the real meat of the nut you have or soon
must crack; and you will find it in the hands of
politicians, speculators, and freight or transit
In other words, bring machinery, and consu
mers to tend them to your own town, manufac
ture your own goods, and you, too, will receive
25 yards of sheeting for a bushel of wheat; for
the wheat will have advanced in price, having
plenty of consumers near by, while the sheeting,
having no freight and speculator's fees to pay,
can be sold for five cents.
A telegraphic dispatch, dated Louisville,
June 16, says :
At a public speaking which took place
to-day in Madison county, between Cas
sius M. Clay and Joseph Turner, a quar
rel ensued, which resulted in a rencontre
between the parties. They first drew
pistols, which snapped but did not go
off. They then attacked each other
most fearfully and fiercely with Bowie
knives. Mr. Clay was stabbed through
the heart and expired immediately. Mr.
Turner was severely wounded in the
I I abdomen and groin, and has since died.
This dreadful tragedy has caused
great excitement and sorrow among the
friends of both parties.
Clay Not Dead.
A later dispatch, dated Cincinatti, June 18,
It is reported in this city, that Cas
sius M. Clay was not killed during the
rencontre in Madison county. The last
intelligence we hear from him is, that
there is a probability of his recovering.
The death of Mr. Turner is confirmed,
Mr. Clay, it seems, having accepted an
invitation to address a meeting of Eman
cipationst in Madison county, was ad
dressing the assemblage on the subject
of slavery, and offence being taken at
some of his remarks, Mr. Turner got up
and called Clay a liar : hence the alter
cation which resulted, as near as I yet
learn, os above stated.
CINCINNATI, June 23
There are so many conflicting reports in rela
tion to the late fatal difficulty in Madison coun
ty, between Cassius M. Clay and Joseph M.
Turner, that it is prudent to give credence to
none of them. Mr. Clay, we learn, at last ac
counts, was recovering, his wound not being as
dangerous as it was first supposed. It is said
that Mr. Turner acknowledged, before his death,
having stabbed Mr. Clay.

Mifflin stated further that he had been to Phila

learned, on inquiry in these places, that good
coal, suitable for steam vesaelsovis much need

proved itself, on a fair trial, adapted to steam
purposes, as it was believed from the superior
quality of the coal it would, he was assured

of the company subscribed at once.
After consultation and a free interchange of
opinion among the Commissioners present, the

BENTON AND THE LOCOS.
The Washington Union has lately been hur
ling its abuse, in the mast unmeasured terms, at
the great Missourian, Benton, for the appeal
which he is making to his constituents on the
question of Slavery in the Territories, He is
denounced as an "apostate from the Democratic
party," and sundry other parts of speech are ap
plied to him, which to say the least are not very
complimentary. With a view of exhibiting to
our readers another proof of what we have all
along asserted, to wit: that the locofoco party
in the South are, to a man, opposed to any re
striction on the institution of Slivery, while the
Whig party are almost unanimously in favor of
excluding it from the soil which is now free, we
give the following extract from the Metropoli
tan, the organ of the Locofoeo party in Missou
ri, published at Jefferson, the Capital of that
state. This, in addition to what has been said
by the Organ of the late administration, in Wash
ington City, speaks volumes in the ear of the
COL. BENTON.—The prospect ahead.—
The unanimity which we have found to
exist amongst the Democrats with whom
we have conversed since the publication
of Col. Benton's appeal, is truly grati
fying, although it is neither more nor
less than what was expected. We have
not heard one member of the Democrat
ic party express himself as pleased with
the appeal. Most of them comdemn it,
out and out, and denounce its author as
an apostate from the faith, for whom
there remains no atonement. A few
who are, excessively prudent, seem die=
posed to wait further developments.--
What need there is for further testimo
ny, we confess ourselves unable to per
ceive, and consequently as one of the
sovereigns of this land to whom the im
perious appellant has addressed himself,
we have felt at full liberty to put our de
cision down in black and white.
Our prudent friends we predict, will
be with us, heart and soul after a while.
It is like pulling teeth to give up Ben
ton; they have been long devoted to
him, and they are hoping (against hope)
that he is not gone hook and line—irrev
ocably and forever. They would rath
er take a sugar coated pill than give np
"Old Bullion ;" but they are good Dem
°cram and will come to it. They might
just as well take the tartar at once—
their stomach will never feel easy till
they get rid of such an oppressive load
of political treason and corruption.
Do hairs ever turn into snakes 7--[Zanesville
[l:7 No ! but they frequently turn into butter.

that Gen. Taylor, if elected, would turn out
the worst sort of a Locofoco—and Sam was
right, for the General has turned him out...—.

further instructions. Some accounts
say he was recalled, and that the same
messenger carried back instructions to
Gen. Oudinot for the reduction of the
Holy City to subjection at all hazards,
and that he would commence an attack
with an army of 25,000 men on the

Riot and Bloodshed in Philadelw
A disgraceful and bloody riot occurred ins
Philadelphia on Sunday afternoon and evening
of last week, amongst some of the firemen.—
The disturbance commencedabout noon between ,
the Moyamensing and Pranklin companies.--
Before the scene closed one man was killed and#
several severely wounded.
This is the fruits of the encouragement et- ,
tended to mobs and rioters by a portion of the'
Locofoco press of the country. The Pennsyl

rioters in New York, the effect of which is to
excite the same violent spirit in the evil and
viciously disposed in their midst. Law and or.

their citizens are endangered, and the institu
tions of our country are brought into disrepute
by these disgraceful occurrences, and yet a press
claiming to be respectable has the hardihood to
justify and defend them.
