[Cr Gan. Taylor has returned to Washington.
His return is understood to have been caused
partly by important public business, and partly
by continued indisposition. His health, how
ever, is not supposed to be seriously affected.
The Globe--Mr. Cornyn,
The Glebe of last week devotes more than
two columns to the abuse of Col. Cornyn. The
editor calls loudly upon the people to defeat the
Whig candidate, but does not tell them which of j
the Locofoco candidates they should elect. It
would seem farcical therefore in us, to enter in
to any discussion with him on the subject. The
opposition of the editor of the Globe to Mr. Car
nyn comes a little too late. If he made the tin•
faithful Representative which the Globe now'
would make the public believe he did, why did
not the editor attack him long since? The sea
son is mani:cst ; he had no sound objections to
urge, and thought by waiting until the eve of
the election, he could get up a humbug cry about
nothing, that would better answer his purposes.
But as we said before, it is too late. The
people of this county know that they never had
a more faithful and efficient representative at
Harrisburgthan Col. Cornyn. This fact is ad.
milted by men of all parties. And the Whigs
of Huntingdon know that they have never had
a more eloquent and able champion of their
cause in the State Legislature. When at the
commencement of the session the Locofocos
banded together and were holding nightly eau-I
to entrap Old Bill Johnston, oar glorious
Whig Governor, Ms. Cornyn stepped forward
in his defence, and made a speech which caused
the conspiratOrs to hang their heads in shame.
It was an effort of which the Whigs of Hunting
don were justly proud ; it was eloquent in dic
tion, and unanswerable in argument. Through
out the entire session, Mr. Cornyn was ever at
his post, attending to the business of his imme
diate constituents, and the interests of the State
at large. In maturing and passing the impor
tant revenue measures of the session, by which
the State credit has been maintained and a Sink
ing Fund created for reducing the STATE DEBT,
Mr. Cornyn took an active part. Indeed he
was looked upon as a leading member on the
Whig side, and never spoke without receiving
the. marked attention of the. House. He made,
in short, just such a representative as the Peo
ple of Huntingdon county want ; and hence they
will return him by a largely increased majority,
and the opposition of the Huntingdon Globe will
rather have the effect of swelling than decreas
ing thatlmnjority.
The opposition and abuse of the Globe is to
be expected by Mr. Cornyn. The same paper
abused and misrepresented both -rnylor and
Johnson last tall, but as the election showed,
without much effect. Every good Whig there
fore, who runs for an important office in Hun
tingdon county, must expect to encounter the
abuse of this sheet.
MAJN.E ELECTION.-The returns from Maine
are yet incomplete. As far as heard from the
Whig's have gained in the Legislates° and also
gained on the popular vote. It is not certain
that the locofoco candidate for Governor is elect
ed by the people. The senate will stand 15
whige to 11 locos; the House is still in doubt.
Locofocoism is being hard pressed in all the
free States.
07" We regret to state that a son of the Hon•
James Cooper, ten years of age, fell from a coal
car on the railroad at Pottsville, and had his leg
so dreadfully mangled that amputation above the
knee was necessary. A number of boys were
playing on the ears.
An Insult to the People.
"If you would have a sound and reliable cur
rency, GOLD and SILVER, you must vote
againrt Col. Cornyn."—Globe of last week.
We submit, whether in this enlightened day,
a more direct insult to the intelligence of the
people could be offered, than is contained in the
above sentence 1 And it is not possible that
there is a reader of the Globe in the county, so
steeped in ignorance as not to look upon it as
most contemptible humbuggery. All that is
wanting, according to this, to give us an exclu•
sive currency of "gold and silver," ie the de-'
feat of Col. CortisM! Why did yoit not add, Mr;
Globe, that the people . would have "long silkdn
purses, through the insterstiCes et which the
gold and silver would glitter," also as a conse
quence of Col. Curnyn's defeat: After penning
the above, there is nothing you could say, which
would render you any more ridiculous. We do
not notice this matter because we think our
candidate can be injured by such stuff. But we
wish to call the attention of holiest Democrats
to it. We want to ask them whether they can
continue to cast their votes for a party, the or
gans of which annually insult their intelligence
by just such disgusting humbug,gery as this I.
Is it not an evidence that they have no sound
objections to bring against Whig principles and
whig candidates, whenthey record to this course?
Every body knows that nearly all the banks of
this State have been incorporated by the Loco
focos. And every body knows, too, that we
cannot get along without banks. Yet an elec
tion isnetrer allowed to pass, without a sense
less and unmeaning outcry by the Locofoco pa-
Peru against bank paper, and in favor of gold
and silver, thinking thereby to continue to hum
bug the people into the support of their candi
dates. We know there are scores of honest de
mocrats who do not approve of this, and in jus
tice to themselves they should boldly vote
against the party that thus annually outrages
their good sense,
The Party.
The following rather ambiguous paragraph
appears under the editorial head of the last
Globe :
" We would advise two or three gentle
men in this town, whose tongues are no slander
where known, to curb them, that We may be
.the trouble of giving an exposure of their
eontemptable proceedings generally. We have
taken our position, and come weal or come wo,
we shall adhere to it. We are with the party
and for the party, the assertions of those who
differ with us to the contrary notwithstanding."
Now what does all this mean 1 It is known
here that a very pretty fight is going on at this
time among the locofocos in relation to the Le
gislative candidates ; and it is also said that the
editor of the Globe goes with the Jobitea. But
he don't say so in his paper. He says he is
with « the party." Well tell us who is the can
didate of ,4 the party"—Col Duff or Job S.
Morris 1 After telling us this, as you so much
object to Mr. Cornyn's course in the Legislature,
please give us the platform of the candidate of
,‘ the party." This thing of running two can
didates, neighbor, and holding yourself in a po
sition to go for either as circumstances may
best suit, aint just the fair thing. Let us know
who the candidate of « the party" is and all
about him, and then we will have a fair fight.
A run vote.
Remember, Whigs, all that is wanted to elect
HENRY M. FULLER is a full rote. Shall we
not have a full Whig vote in old Iluntingdon 1
Every consideration which caused us to rally
for Taylor should still animate and urge us on
to duty, We should strive to follow the noble
example of the Free Whigs of the Free States
of Rhode Island and Vermont. They have no
bly sustained our patriotic President and his
enlightened Cabinet, and tiennsylvania has more
to expect from the National Administration
than either of those states. as A FULL VOTE
IS A WHIG VICTORY," is the remark of the
Boston Atlas upon the result of the Whig tri
umph in Rhode Island, where Mr. Dixon is
elected to Congress b.,' a majority of 600 over
Mr. Thurston, the late 10er:1R/co member.
So it is. The remark does not only apply to
Rhode Island, but to many other States in the
Union. It is equally applicable to Pennsylva
nia. Give us a FULL VOTE, and we are sure of
Whig victory Baez also.
We have had some additional foreign news
during the past week, but nothing of a definite
or satisfactory character. A painful suspicion
rests upon Georgey, that his surrender was in
fluenced by Russian gold. 'f he Daily news of
Thursday last says : , —The intelligence from
Hungary is still obscure and unsatisfactory, but
while it throws no new light upon the causes
which influenced Georgy's surrender, it seems
to confirm the more important particulars of
the previous saddening advices, forcing upon us
the conviction that the Hungarian forces are
rapidly yielding to the overwhelming power
brought against them. So far as received, how
ever, the news corrects in reports, and many of
them doubtless lacking authenticity, and it is
possible that even were the patriot armies
struggling with undaunted courage and unfledg
ing energy against the allied powers, we might
be without intelligence from them, for the Rus
sian and Austrian forces command all the ave
nues of correct information. We may be with
out authentic information from them, in fact, for
weeks to come, but even if their cause is lost,
which we very much fear, they will not give
up the struggle without en ellbrt. We cannot
believe the story that Kossuth has been captur
ed, nor yet that with Hem he has abandoned
his cause by fleeing to Turkey.
KENTUCKY.-The new Legislature has a Whig
majority on joint ballot of about 30. In the
Convention called to amend the constitution—
Which will have control of the slavery question
—there is a Locofoco majority of five, The
Locofoco press of the North are loudly crowing
over this fact, but it only proves that slavery
was afraid to trust itself in the hands of Whigs.
Qom' The Globe we believe has not yet heard
the news from Rhode Wantland Vermont:
The Recent Elections.
It is the standing boast of the Locofocos, that
Gen. Taylor was elected by 'democratic' votes,
and hence that the vote polled for hint Must not
be regarded us anevidence of Whig strength.--
The recent elections prove the fallacy of this
assumption most conclusively. They also prove
that the Whigs have manifested a zeal no way
inferior to that displayed in the Presidential con
tuft, as will be seen by the following compara
tive statement from the official returns of such
of the States as have already come in, carefully
prepared by the New York Tribune:—
Gen. Taylor's vote: Whig tong. vote
Rhode Island, 2,1 district 3,393 2,822
Alabama, 5 contest'd dis. 21,932 22,116
N. Carolina, 9 do. do. 30,073 29,010
Ifidiana, ccimplete 69,007 70,504
Total of thesei 124,305
This shows an increase of the whig Congres
sional vote of 1819 over that of Gen. Taylor, of
137 votes. Some of the States yet to Bend in
their returns in an official shape, will Increase
this difference, especially Vermont, which it is
presumed will show an increase Of from. 3,000
to 4,000 votes. The ill sticcass in Kentucky
and Tennessee arose from the fact, that the
Whigs were, in the words of the Tribune, 'cried
do*n as the anti-slavery party.' This was suf
ficient td deter some thousands from voting at
all, or to indtice them to vote fOr Locofoco Con
'Upon the whole, the result Of the elections
prove that the Whigs are active and United, as
faithful as ever to principles, and as determined
in action. The result in Pennsylvania, we will
not permit ourselves to doubt, will be another
evidence of the fact. The signs df it are nu
merous and most promising.
The. Jobites.
The Globe does not deny what we said about
the meeting of the friends of Job S. Morris, so
far the locos are concerned, but says that the
names of several whigs appear as officer. of the
meeting. This is true; but it is also true that
but one of the Whigs named took his seat as an
officer of the meeting, and that one, as he after
wards said himself did not understand its ob
ject, and avows himself the warm friend of Mr.
Cornyn. Several others named by the Globe
made no pretentious to have anything to do with
the meeting and are also warmly in favor of Mr.
Cornyn. In short we repeat what we Said be
fore, the Whigs are perfectly united on their
candidate for the Legislature, and will roll up
for him in October a most triumphant majority.
The dissatisfied locofocos who have rallied
around Mr. Morris, will therefore have to con
tent themselves with the votes they can manage
to pick Up in their Own party.
COOL LuctiontmE.—The Norristown Register
expresses fears that in the event of the Whigs
of this State obtaining the ascendency in the
next Legislature, the State will be gerryman
dered by the bill creating Senatorial and Repre
sentative districts. The Herald well remarks
that this is rather cool for a member of that
party which by the last apportionment bill al
lowed Westmorland three members of the Le
gislature and Washington but two—which gave
Becks the same representation in the popular
branch as A,legheny, and gives Montgomery
one Senator, and Chester and Delaware but one.
The fact is, the Register fears the State will
NOT be gerrymandered—to suit the purposes of
its party.
Whigs of Philadelphia have ndmina
ad Charles Gilpin, Esq., for Mayor.
Another Warning.
The attempt to unite the Democratic party
of Vermont to the old Abolition party, modern
ized under the name of "free soil," was tried
and failed on Monday last in that State.
So says the Pennsylvanian of Thursday. It
might have said the same of the coalition in
Rhode Island a few weeks ago. The coalitions
of the "Democratic party" in the west with
the " flee Boilers" and the south wills the Sla
very-extentionists, were more successful. Upon
the whole we don't think the Pennsyivaniatt
has much cause for lamentation over the bar
gains its party has made of late but the future
may prove less propitious.
CALIFORNIA.-The news from California by
the last arrival is generally satisfactory. The
gold continues to be gathered abundantly, but
with very severe labor. The season is healthy
and very few serious casualties have occurred.
Law is sternly administered, very little crime
is known, and order prevails throughout the
mining district. The inhabitants seem to have
acquiesced entirely in the proposition to hold a
convention at Monterey on the let of Septem
ber, for the organization of a State Government,
and an election for Delegates, as well as other
officers, has been held. The state of society at
San Francisco, however, is represented in a far
less favorable light than in the mining districts.
In the latter they are industriously engaged in
working for it, in the former they are spending
it, and gambling and drunkenness still continue
too common.

won is the perpetuation of slavery. hod grant

Han. %V. Gwin, formerly of Mississippi, but
now of California, has written to his friends in
New Orleans, that the people of California will
promptly organize a State government, and ex
clude slavery by an overwhelming majority.
The Boston Traveller of Saturday states, on
the authority of a private letter, that the French
Government will not receive Mr. Rives, our
new ambassador to Paris.
The Traveller supposes the reason will be
drawn from certain despatches Bent home by
Mr. Rives during his former envoyship in
France, and published by our government. They
related to the difficulties concerning the French
indemnity, and going back to France helped to
heighten the irritation which existed there on
the subject.
Ma. CLAAK 1-I am a "working Whig"—and
whether I have or have not written for newspa
peril matters but little, as I mean id "stick
down something" in answer to one Working
Whig from Little Walker.. We in Old Walker
ddn't Eke to be behind. 'he "Little Walks?
Whig" may be a working Whig; but I don't be
lieve it. The Whigs were never found in times
of trial, drilling nor uniting with the co* boys
or Skinners.—No Whig ever deserted, and was
a Whig still.—What a man is and what he has
been are sometimes two things. In this case,
however, I guess the has been and the is are
the same, and the "Little Walker Whig" is,
and has been, and will be a Locofoco—one of
the right stripe—fit for nothing else.
Now what he says about you, you may tend
to yourself. I am for the reputation of Old
Walker ; and when 1 find that the organ grind
er of the Locofocos is playing a double--;--as
! vitiea/ game, hoping to entrap a few unthin ing
Whigs in it, I am for "giving him a few." Be
gin then at the "Little Whig's" communication,
' nnd. read the Globe through both ways, and you
will find there is not one word as to who is the
candidate of that organ,—except the flag of Col.
Duff whiCh flies at the mast-head,—while the
organ is said to make bad music for the Col. to
March by ; and if it is good for Job, poor Job
cannot hear it, and I am afraid that Job and his
friends will sleep the sleep "that knoWs no wa
king," before they will be awakened by its
tones. The truth is, in Ohl Walker we feel as
if the Globe's attempts to injure Col. Cornyn
will prove abortive. And all the labor of .the
Globe seems directed to that and end. Yet who
does the Globe support for the ,Asserribly? Can
any one tell? Not Job surely I foci there
is not one word urging any body to vote for him.
Can any honest Whig be duped by such a shal
low artifice? And if the Little Walker man
I was a Whig, we commend to him the proverb—
"if you lie down with dogs you must get up
with fleas."
The Globe is very free with its columns to a
"Little Walker Whig," while only a few weeks
since it refused " A Democrat" of town room to
take some of the tangles out of Deinocracy, be
ca•use he leas not a subscriber. What Whig
subscriber has he got in Little Walker, that
wrote that article! Whig subscribers in Little
Walker easily counted, eh?

Mr. dcanit :---I can inform you that the au
thor of the communication in the last Globe,
signed "A Little Walker Whig," is a professed
Democrat of Ciis town. He was on the Dem
ocratic ticket at one time, and is now playing
disorganizer by opposing the regular nominee
for the Legislature. I have never voted with
your party; I am a Democrat from principle,
but when I hear afellow like this talking about
Whigs lounging at the corners and on counters,
I cannot refrain from telling the people who he
is, and the kind of service he has heretofore per
formed for the Democrats. It was this He
would profess to sympathize with the Whigs,
and agree that all their measures, the Tariff', po
sition on the Mexican war, &c., &c., were cor
rect, and even intimate that he would support
their candidates. Hence, Whigs would talk
pretty freely about party arrangements in his
presence. This he soon discovered, and when
ever he would see a few Whigs together of an
evening, he would sneak among them, and glean
all the secrets he could, and then forthwith car
ry the information to us. In this way he made
himself serviceable, and indeed indispensable to
us, as he was the only man in our party mean
and jesuitical enough for such service.

Mllnwood Academy.
Col. Ciisali—Through your valuable paper, I
write to inform its many readers of an institu
tion which has lately sprung up in our county,
and one of which the county can be justly proud,
Milnwood Academy, in Dublin township. It
is located at the base oj Shade Mountain in the
neautiful valley of Tuscarora, whose elevation
is so high, and the air so pure, that chills and
fever are unknoWn to any of the inhabitants in
the vicinity of this young institution of learning.
The people, too, of that portion of our county
which surrounds Milnwood, are a church-going
people ; are industrious and hospitable ; and
possessing a high moral gone, they will com
pare well with the citizens of any other part of
the county. Such are the people with whom
the youth instructed in this institution will have
to associate.
The Academy is conducted by the Rev. J. Y.
McGinnis, who is bland and courteous in his
deportment, possesses indomitable energy, and
is one of the most eloquent and learned preach
ers belonging to tine Presbyterian church. The
Professor, J. H. W. McGinnis, it learned, digni•
fled, and courteous. Under sucin instructors,
Parents and Guardians may expect a high de
gree of moral and mentel training ; in this I feel
assured they will not be disappointed, as the
writer of these few crude remarks was a visiter
at their late and first exhibition, Which look
place on the 12th inst.
Early in the day you could see the cititens
coming from all directions, throngihg, every tho
roughfare-;—exhibiting a taste and style in their
appearance, and an urbanity and self-compla
cency in theit deportment, which satisfied all
that they were fully impressed with the impor
tance of the little nursery of science ; and that
they had resolved to give it, in its infancy, their
undivided support. Precisely at two °lock the
pupils of Milnwood were marched two and two,
by the 'Rev'd McGinnis, to the Presbyterian
church, in which the were not less than five
hundred people assembled; after all Were pro
vided with seats, filling everypart of a fine new
church, and order restored, the Rev. J. Y, Mc-
Ginnis addressed Almighty God in behalf of
those young men entrusted to his charge, in a
strain of the most fervid eloquence, after which
a hymn, selected fur the occasion, was sung by
the cheit belonging to the church With great
sweetnessmiany Of the singers exhibiting as
melodious voices as the writer ever heard.
The young men then made their appearance
on the stage, in the order of the published pro
gramme. Allow me to say, that it was with
much difficulty thnt cheering was kept in bourds.
The young men all performed their parts admi
rably, and many of them spoke with a precision
and distinctness of enunciation, that would have
done credit to older and more experienced heads,
many di thein exhibiting a degree of talent that
would satisfy the patriot of this day, that the
infant institution of Milnwood will send out from
her walls learning, patriotism, and a high toned
moral feeling.
In conclusion, alio* roe most earnestly to
recommend to all Parents and Guardians, having
boys to instruct in the higher branches of learn
ing, to send them to this institution—it being
the only one in our county. You can keep them
almost as cheaply at Mlinwood as you can at
home in idleness, where they will grow up in
ignorance, alike injurious to themselves and to
society, and a reproach to their Parents and
Guardians. W.

General Taylor at Mercer.
Warren Delegation—The Charge by .hfr,
Gen. Taylor was welcomed with much
enthusiasm at Mercer, Pa. and a delige
lion from Warren, Ohio, was in atten
dance. Gen. Taylor made a short speech
to the multitude, and the editor of the
Trumbull County Whig, who was pres
ent, says:
"When Gov, Johnston had concluded,
the President and himself were introdu ,
ced into the Hotel, where they received
the congratulations of the people until
tea-time. Tho delegation from this
place waited upon the President in form
and were received in the most cordial
manner. He had a great many inqui
ries to make with regard to the industri
al pursuits of the Reserve, its dairy
farms, its adaption to agriculture gen
erally, its mineral resources, &c. all of
which showed him clearly conversant
with the topics introduced. "
"The matter of Mr. Giddings and his
charge with regard to the President's
using his influence in favor of Walker's
amendment, came up in the course of
conversation. The General said he had
been entirely misrepresented by Mr•
Giddings in this particular—that the
first intimation he had of influencing
members of Congress was conveyed to
him in the published charge of Mr. Gid
dings, He had never sent for a single I
member of Congress for the purpose of
conversing with them on this topic, and
out of the large number who called
upon him after his arrival in Washing
ton, the California question was men
tioned but rarely, and then only as the
conversation happened to take that turn.
He owned to being anxious that Califor
nia should have some government beside
the bowie-knife and pistol, but said he
had never expressed a preference for the
amendment of Mr. Walker ever that of
any other. He remarked in this con
nection, that the people of the North need
have no apprehension of the further exten
sion of Slavery—that the necessity of a
third party organization on this score
would soon be obviated ; with other ob
servations too significant to be misun
derstood."—Cleveland(o.) Herald.

Highly Important from Santa Fis
Two Hard Fought Battles between Un?ted
States Troops and Indians.
Sr Louis, Sept. 12.
By an arrival In this city, we learrl
that an express froth Santa Fe and Los
Vegas, had arrived at Fort Leavenworth
on the let of Sethtember, with the fol
lowing highly important intelligence.
The express left Santa Fe on the 15th
and Los Vegas on the 16th Of August.
. . . .
On the latter day a band of 40 Apache
Indians attacked Capt. Jeundas' forced
at Los Vegas, and after a sharp fight
were repulsed, losing all but ten kv drz
riors. These Indians were recognized
as a party who had committed previous
deprodations—violating their treaties
with the Government.
On the first fire the Indians broke,

tnysterious manner. Search was made
for her, but in vain. Yesterday some
person found some articles of female

entertain similar sentiments, although
from their subserviency to pary par
