We join our neighbor of the Globe In con

unlicensed grog shops that may exist in our
community.. The evil consequences of these
dogge ries are truthfully portrayed by our neigh

our laws with impunity. But while wo gO for
the suppression of these nuisances, we cannot
go with our neighbor so far as to recommend the
exercise of mob law to do so. The Law we
believe to to fully adequate to punish,all offen
ders against its majesty. Let the officers whom
we anntmlly elect, and who are sworn to do
their duty, faithfully perform it ; and our word
for it the law will soon purge our borough of
these doggenes. We cannot subscribe to the
doctrine that citizens should vindicate one law,
by violating another. Strict obedience to all
our laws is the true doctrine, and when this is
adhered to, and offenders are promptly arraign
ed before those whose duty it is to faithfully
administer the laws, all unlawful nuisances can
be speedily and effectually removed. Let our
officers therefore do their duty, or in default,

Pennsylvania Railroad---Onr Haaglli
The President of the Pennsylvania Railroad
Company, accompanied by two Directors, and
several of the heaviest stockholders, visited our
town during the past week. We had the plea
, meeting those gentlemen at the residence
of our neighbor, J. (3. Miles, Esq. Mr. PAT
TERRON, the i'l'esident, is a gentleman of very
social disposition, and exceedingly afllible in
hie manners. The directors and stockholders
who accompanied him appeared no less tillable
and pleasing in their intercourse, and are gen
tlemen of enlarged intelligence and liberal. views.
Several of the party hdd never visited this sec
tion of the State before, and expressed them
selves highly delighted with Huntingdon and
the surrounding country. Arid they all ex
pressed the kindest feelings for our citizens, and
many of them gave it as their opinion that our
town would reap great advantages from the
construction of the Railroad, if the citizens
would make a united effort to secure them.—
They seemed, too, much gratified with the pre
gross the road was making, and spoke ih the
highest terms of that portion on which the cars

been done to secure to Huntingdon the perma

We regret that OP to this time the question
must be ansWered ih the negative. It is, we
learn, the purpose of the Company to locate in
this neighborhood a Depot, Worehthise and Ma
chine Shop. "If," in the language of Mr.
Spangler, one of the Directors, "the citizens of
Huntingdon exhibit towards the Company a lib
eral spirit—meet on half way," these improve-
Meets will be located in the heart of our bo
rough. If this is not done they will go either
to the east or west of us. Every business than
indeed all our citizens, are interested in hav
ing these improvements in our borough. Will
not, therefore, all unite in an effort to secure
them 7 Now is the time to act. "Delays are
dangerous"—and this is emphatically true in
our case. If a location is once determined on
for these improvements outside our town, all
our efforts may not be able to change it. All
have a common interest in this matter— , men of
every calling are alike interested in the pros

Huntingdon is now looking up. Let us keep
the ball moving—allow no advantages to elude

Wm. Summerville et al vs Thomas
This important law suit, briefly noticed in
our last, fried in Blair county, is thus noticed by
the Hollidaysburg Register :
The adjourned court held by Judge TAYLOR
last week, was occupied during its entire sit
ting with the trial of • one cause—Wm. Summer
ville et al vs Thomas Jackson et at. The suit
was for the recovery of the three-sevenths of
a tract of land containing about 12J acres upon
a part of which Gaysport is located, and for the
lots which remain in said borough unsold. S.
S. BLAIR and MAD. STEvaNs Counsel for the
; and J. G. MILES, J. F. Coo, S. S. CAL
VIN and A. P. WI.. for the Deft.—The case
was argued to the Jury by Blair, Miles, CO.
and Stevens. It is scarcely necessary to say
that it was ably tried by the learned Counsel on
both sides, for the reputation they enjoy is a
guarantee for this; but it is due to Mr. MILES
and to Mr. Ilt.sin tosay that they more than sus-
tattled the high refutations which they previously
enjoyed, and that the former may justly be ac
counted one of the strongest and ablest mem
bers of the profession, and the latter one of the
brightest add most promising among the youn
ger class of practitioners. Great interest was
felt to hear Mr. Bnm:se's speech in the case,
and on Saturday fdrenoon by the time he was
expected to address the Jury, the Court room
was crowded, quite a numlier of ladies honoring
the occasion with their pi esence. We will only
say his whole bearing in Oar court, has confirm
ed the universal impression amongst us that he
is a great Orator and a great man. The Jury
found for the Plaintiffs.
117" The editor of the Philadelphia Daily'
Son is reaping the reward of Whig labor in
the shape of a fat Custom House appointment,
yet that paper is daily sneering at the Whig par
ty, and in the late campaign opposed its candi
dates. With all odr personal regard for Mr.
Wallace, we say that jdsticerequires his remo
val. We would scorn to Mid an office under
an Administration which we could not support;
and so would any honorable man. The Whig
party elected Gen. Taylor, and opposition to
the Whig party is opposition to Gen. Taylor.—
And as the Daily Sun has received the reward
of its treason from the Locofocos, its editor
should not expect continued support from Oldie
against whom its treason was directed.
FtiYSINGER, Esq., of the Lewistown

On Saturday evening last two or three Irish
men went on board a canal boat as she entered
the lock et the big dam about two miles above
this place, rind knocked down and threw over
board a colored man named David C. Williams.
The other hands on the boat escaped Uninjured.
The Captain came to this place and made, oath
before a justice, when several men started in
pursuit of the murderers. They have not yet
been arrested, nor is it known where they are.
—Their names are said to be Michael Dolan,
Flanagan, and the other not known. Wil:
liains is represented to have been an honest,
peaceable and industrious young man from
Greencastle, Franklin county, Pa. .His body
was brought to this place and respectably in
terred in the colored•giaveyard. The Irishmen
were intoxicated, and had a quarrel with the
bowsman on their way tip from this place.
They wished to get on the boat at the first lock
above town, but were denied—they thert collect
ed a large number of Irishmen from the shim
ties, and made the attack at the dirh. We hope
they may net detapo a just punlshment.-- , -Glabo

We understand that Flanagan, one of the above
flamed murderers, is a man of about six feet four
inches high. His size will doubtless facilitate
his arrest. We sincerely hope all engaged in
this atrocious murder will be brought to pun
ishment. We have rarely heard of a more cold
blooded affair. The colored man had neither by
word or deed molested his cruel murderers.
Their purpose was to kill a white man on the
boat, but not finding him, they wreaked their
Vengeance on the unollending negrd.
Insult to Gen. Taylor.
The Baltimore Clipper remarks :—lt appears
from the proceedings of an anti-slavery conven
tion, held in Norristown, Mass., that Mr. Garri
son, the noted abolitionist, had prepared an ad
dress to be delivered to Gen. Taylor, had he
visited that State, in which he would have ap
plied the most insulting epithets to the Presi
dent. He read the address to the convention,
remarking that if Zachary Taylor, in view of
his wickednesil and oppression, had been met
with rebukes and railings, instead of cheers and
rejoicings, ho would have been induced to abol
ish slavery, not only on his own plantation, but
also in other places."
We have no idea that President Taylor would
have been received by the people of Massachu
setts in any other way than a respectful man
ner; and we are confident that they would not
have permitted Mr. Garrison tti address him in
language so exceedingly offensive as that con
templated by this ultra-abolitionist. A North
ern paper makes the following extracts from the
"What office," referring to the thief Magis
tracy, Was desecrated when the people elect
ed a tyrant to fill it." 4 f You are," says Mr.
Garrison to President Taylor, in the address,
you are a successful perpetrator of Robbery,
Murder and every atrocity upon a gigantic
scale." 4, You are a man stealer—you arc hen.
ored, carressed, flattered, but still you are a
man stealer. It is said you are honest, but no
honest man would deprive his fellow man of
liberty. It is said you are brave, but the brave
man would not hold in bondage his fellow
ments, in noting which fact, the Erie Gazette
says :—« We learn from those who are well in
formed, that its former liabilities have been
honorably cancelled, and it is now upon a heal
thy and permanent basis. Its notes are re
deemed in this city at 1 per cent."

Intoxication in Sweden.
The laws against intoxication are en
forced with great rigor in Sweden.--
Whoever is seen drunk is fined for the
first offence three dollars; for the second
six ; for the third and fourth a still lar
ger sum, and is also deprived of the
right of voting at elections, and of be
ing appointed n representative: He is,
besides, publicly exposed in the parish
church on the following Sunday. If the
same individual is found committing the
same ()Ilene° a fifth time, he is shut up
in the house of correction, and con
demnt d to six months' hard labor ; if
lie is again guilty, to a twelvemonth's
punishment of a similar description. If
the offence has been cotriinitted in public
such as at a fair, an auction, &c., the
fine is doubled ; and if the offender has
made his appearance at a church, the
punishment is still more severe.—
Whoever is convicted of having induced
another to intoxicate himself is fined
three dollars, which sum is doubled if
the person be a minor. An ecclesias
tic who falls into this offence loses his
benefice; if ho is a layinan who occu
pies any considerable post, his functions
are suspended, and perhaps he is dismis
sed. Drunkenness is never admitted as
an excuse for any crime ; and whaever
dies when drunk is buried ignominious
ly, and deprived of the prayers of the
church. It is forbidden to give, and
more explicitly to sell any spirituous
liquors to students ; workmen, servants,
apprentices, or private soldiers. Who
ever is observed drunk in the streets, or
making a noise in a tavern, is sure to be
taken to prison and detained till sober,
without, however, being on that account
exempted from the fines. One-half of
these fines go to the informers, (who arc'
generally police officers,) the other half
to the poor. If the delinquent has no
money, he is kept in prison until some
one pays for him, or he has worked out
his enlargement. Twice a year these
ordinances are read aloud from the pul
pit by the clergy; and every tavern
keeper is bound, under a penalty of a
heavy fine, to haVe a copy of them hung
up in the principal rooms of his house.

Breeds named Le Prairie and the band
of Chippewas who acknowledge Shunia

Breeds was five—three men and two

DESPERATE BATTLES WITH INDIANS.-
Late advices from Mexico, bring ac

many, and capturing a number. The

loss so severe by the precision with
which the Americans delivered their
fire, nt length retreated and again took
up their position at the rancho, which
had been abandoned by the latter when
they hastened to the defence of their
cattle. The company returned to the
charge with great courage and again
tormod the entrenchment, driving out
the Indians with a heavy loss. The

cattle, but the Americans pursued them
