The "HONTINODON JOURNAL" is published at
ra3 following rates, viz $1,75 a year, if paid
Avanee ; $2,09 if paid during the year, and
$ if not paid until after the expiration of
th, year. The above terms to be adhered to in
ali eases.

Auditor's Notices.
On account of the clifticulties heretofore ex
perienced in collecting pay for publishing Audi
tor's Natio., we have determined to insert none
hereafter unless paid in advance, or the pay
ment is assum.d by some responsible person.
Our charge is $1,25
Neva Advertisements.
PRIRRTAL & Boom have opened their new
store, and are already doing a rushing business.
The "Elephant" is attracting large homes, and
we advise all to go and see him.
Nur & MILLER are keeping up the "Excite
ment" in their line of business, by the low pri
eas of their Clocks, Watches, Jewelry, &c.
SPEER & IRONS have opened an extensive store
at Bridgeport, below Mill Creek. They are
young men of enterprise and good business quail
firations, and deserve encouragement.
SOHN GARNER, Jr., is recommended for nom
trj the Whig Co. Convention, for Sheriff:
Valuable Hotel fee Sale.
It will be seen by an advertisement in another
column, that Mr. Tuoatas WALLACE offers his
well known “Washington Hotel" for sale. This
is a valuable property, and affords an opportu
nity to any one wishing to go into the business
of keeping a public house, rarely to be met with.
The house is now doing a fine business, a- d from
its superior advantages in point of location, will
doubtless do a largely increased business in the
050" . The answer of "Plebs" to the criticism
of "Patres," although well written, and entirely
unobjectionable in point of language and style, is
quite too long. "Brevity is the soul of wit,"
and as articles of this kind do not possess general
interest, we will have to insist on their being
condensed into much smaller space. If "Plebs"
will compress his article into about one-fourth
the space of the communication before us, we
will cheerfully publish it next week.
The Venu , a. Railroad.
The Cars have commenced making ;eir regu
lar trips to Huntingdon. The first Locomotive
arrived here on Thursday last. On Friday the
passenger trains commenced their regular trips
to this place, where for some time they will
connect with the Packet Boat and Stage Lines.
The Cars arrive in Huntingdon at 3 and 8 o'clock
P. M., and leave at I and 8 o'clock, A. M., for
the East. The arrival of the first Locomotive,
as may be supposed, created quite a sensation.
Look Out.
We advise our citizens generally, young and
old, to avoid standing on the railroad, or getting
into the cars when the Locomotive is moving.
We have known the most serious accidents to
occur to persons standing on the track behind
the train, tyy the motion of the Locomotive be•
ing suddenly reversed. The safest plan is not
to steml on the track.
Several accidents occurred during tit, past
week, with a hand car. Mr. Fox, an engineer,
received a severs injury by this car running off
the track. Anil a person intoxicated had his toes
cut off and his foot otherwise badly injured. On
'Sunday last, Mr. Win, Hight had his foot se
verely injured by having it caught in the turn
round, below town.
Our citizens were aroused from their slum
bers about 1 o'clockon Friday night last, by the
alarming cry of fire. It proved to be the dwel
ling of Mr. David Long. in the neighborhood of
the Jail, which was entirely consumed, the fire
having gained too much headway before the ar
rival of the ci:izens, to be arrested. The night
bing calm and damp, the fire was prevented
from spreading to the adjoining property. Mr.
Long's furniture was saved, and we understand
he has a small insurance on the house. The
fire originated from a light'd candle, which, as
is supposed, fell against a bed. Great caution
snould be observed by those having occasion to
use night lights.
State Senator.
Personally, we care linTlitTlefrom which of
the three counties of this district the Whig can
didate lei State Senator is taken, so that a good
man, with the proper qualifications, is selected.
Nevertheless, we utterly deny that Blair county
is in any way specially entitled to the candidate.
The district has just been formed, and we con
tend that the three counties stand on a perfe.•t
equality, in this respect. Huntingdon, having
the largest population, it would seem but fair
should have the first candidate, and on this ground
nay possibly present and urge the claims of one
of her citizens. Certain we are that she will
not concede the candidate to Blair county, as
matter of right.
GC?' A special meeting of the Huntingdon
Presbytery, to ordain Mr. Jaatas GRBISOS, of,
this place, for the Ministry, will be held in the
Pr , tehyterian church of this Borough, commen
cing on to-morrow.
L 7 Wm. B. Clark. Esq. has been nominated
by the Whigs of Maryland, as their candidate
fer Governor. From the name, we should judge
that the norninatiot► was a pod one.
The Locotoco Nominations.
The State Ticket nominated by the Locofoco
Convention at Williamsport, is considered the
weakest ever placed before the people of Penn
sylvania for their votes. This is admitted by
many of the more considerate Locofocos them
Mr. Monattion, the candidate for Canal Com
missioner, is a wealthy citizen of Montgomery
county. He wane member of the last Legisla
ture, but was never known even to make a sug
gestion, much less originate a measure. He was
a member of the Committee on Bunks, and a
fellow-member of the same Committee informed
us that he never knew so stupid and useless a
man, who made any pretensions whatever, as
this same Wat. T. MORRISON. He is totally
unfit to take charge of the interests of the people,
as Canal Commissioner.
EPHRAIM Bssits, Esq., the candidate for Au
ditor General, is a respectable citizen of Mifflin
county, and is well known to many of our citi
zens. It will not be pretended here that he has
the qualifications which should be possessed to
fill so important an office. Indeed he is emit
ted to be totally incompetent. An old member
of the Locofoco party of this district exclaimed,
on hearing of his nomination, "Ephraim Banks
for Auditor General I why he is nut fit for clerk
in a Prothonotary'a office." And the editor of
the York Republican, who knows him well,
says he always thought Ephraim the smallest
man in the State in comparison with his preten
sions, except John B. Sterigere, of Montgomery.
The office of Auditor General is one of great
public importance, and we don't see where this
nominee is to obtain the qualifications to fill'it,
though to be sure he was once a schoolmaster,
which ought to have made him acquainted with
figures, and has since practised law, in which
he cut no great figure. Nevertheless, notwith.
standing their avowed hatred of special privile
ges and chartered monoplies, we shall no doubt
find the Locos going it with a rush for Banks at
the ensuing elections.
And next we have J. PORTER BRAWLZY, Esq.
for Surveyor General. Now if we were to
truthfully speak of this man's depravity, we
would doubtless be charged with falsifying; for
the people generally would hardly believe that
such a walking mass of corruption could receive
a nomination for a State office. He is one of
the most debased and corrupt creatures that ev
er held a seat in the Pa. Legislature. For the
last three years he has been a member of the
State Senate, anti it is notorious that he very
frequently appeased in his seat in a state of in
toxication. His other moral delimuencies are
equally notorious, but of them we will not speak
at this time. During the last memorable ses
sion, he was considered the most corrupt among
the many corrupt men who disgraced our State
Capitol. He voted to increase the pay of the
members after the expiration of the oneluindied .
NOMINATED. How he received the nomina
tion is an enigma to us. His own county in
structed against him ; and previous to the meet
ing of the State Convention, the Easton Argus,
the Lorofoco organ of Northampton county,
thus spoke of him
"J. Porter Brawley, of Crawford county, is
named by one or two newspaper correspondents
for Auditor General. He would do very well
cratic party wishes to prosper, it must nominate
SOBER mid HONEST men—men of good moral
character, Personally and politically.
The Jackson Democrat, a Locofoco paper
published at Bedford says:
"That's the talk ! Besides. Brawley Acts teen
repudiated by the Democracy of hie own county,
aad is connected with the ROTTEN FACTION
headed by J. E. M'Farland. of Crawford county,
Both are exceeiiinglyfisAy politicians."
Our friend 13ratton, of the Carlisle Volunteer,
(a railicalLocoloco paper) speaks in high terms
of Morrison and Banks, but ' , knowing Brawley
well," dares not praise, and seems afraid to
blame. Hence he announces the nomination to
his readers in the following laconic manner :
"For Surveyor General the Convention nomi
nated J. Potter Brawley, of Crawford county.
We know Mr. B. very well. For the last three
sessions he represented his county in the State
Yes, the editor of the Volunteer "knows Brew
ley very well." He knows that he was one of
the Porter faction who, in the spring of 1843,
defeated him for State Printer, when he was the
regular candidate of his party ; and not satisfied
with that, personally abused him in the House,
in a speech which was considered at the time
exceedingly coarse and vulgar. The' editor of
the Volunteer also knows that this same Brew
ley turned Tyler man, and received as his price
a fat government contract. And if he Would
only tell the Democracy of old Cumberland all
he knows about 13rawley, we venture the pre
diction that they would bolt from their candidate
for Surveyor General.
Such is a brief but truthful description of the
Locofoco State Ticket. Will the people endorse
it by their votes 7 We shall see !
The School Law.
It appears that the changes in the School Law,
spoken of in an article published in the Journal
of May 28, never passed both /louses. And to
correct the wrong impressions which thut arti
cle has doubtless created, we publish the fol
lowing extract of a letter from A. L. RUBBED,
Esq., Superintendent of Common Schools, as
follows :
"The only changes in the School Law of 1849
made by the Legislature at its lust session, are
the rep,al oi so much of the 16th section an pro
hibits the admission of scholars over 21 years of
of age and reducing the minimum period, fixed
by the 22d section, for keeping schools in ope
ration, to three months."
Etarlinder the new Apportionment law the
Return Judges of the 15th Senators& District
are to meet in the Court House at Hollidays
burg; and the return Judges of the Representa
tive District at the Court House inHuntingdon.
W. BUTTER, former editor of the Lancaster In
telligeneer, was licensed to preach the gospel
by the German Lutheran Synod, of this State,
at it. recent session at Pottsville.
In a private letter to gentleman of Philadel
phia, dated Washington, June 2, and published
in the Daily News, those who have dared to
call in question Mr. Senator Cooper's course,
are cautioned to beware how they assail him.—
The writer says that "Mr. Cooper is not the
man to submit to be the creature of circumstan
ce• at every step." Indeed ! The Sena'or
bears his crest proudly since he is secure in his
place, and beyond the reach of those who gave
him his power. We recollect well when he was
willing to be "the creature of circumstances."
Yes, when he and his friends were begging his
election to the Senate, we heard nothing but the
most honied words and the most lavish promises
of loyalty to the will of the Whig party. No
threats were used than. M. Cooper' was then
emphatically "the creature of circumstances."
And had it been known that he would use his
Senatorial office to disorganize, rather than build
up, the Whig party, "circumstances" would
have consigned him to obscurity which his
subsequent conduct has shown he so justly mer
ited. Had it not been for the labors of Wm. F.'
Johnston, our glorious Whig Governor, and the
all-powerful twine of Old Zack, the Whigs would
not hove bad the power in 18441 to elect Mr.
Cooper, or any one else, to the U. S. Senate.—
And yet, notwithstanding Mr. Cooper owes his
election to the labors of the one, and the
foray of the other, he has on no occasion shown
a disposition to mill ort the administration of
either. On the other hand, he did all he could
before leaving the Legislature, to embarrass and
aid the Locolocos to "head" the State Admin
istration- Failing signally in this, we hail hoped
he would repent and give a cordial support to
our honored and worthy Whig President. Has
he done so I No! He has been active In op
posing the nominations made by the Adminis
tration, and is now opposing the plan of the
President for the settlement of the California
and Territorial question, and lending his sup
port to the Clay Compromise, which is condemn
ed by an overwhelming majority of the Whig
freemen of Pennsylvania. But in conclusion,
this writer, who undertakes to threaten the
Whigs on Mr. Cooper's behalf, says
"Mr. Cooper has still some lively feelings for
the interest of Pennsylvania. Therefore, let all
who will, take heed and understand."
'rid., we suppose, is to be interpreted thus
If the Whigs of Pennsylvania dare to call Mr.
Cooper to account for misrepresenting them on
the slavery question, he will also desert them
on the Tariff question, abandon the interests of
Pennsylvania entirely, and go over body and
soul to the enemy.
A Strong Ticket.
Several Whigs have joinedin recommending
the following gentlemen to the consideration of
the Whig State Convention :
For Canal Cornntiseioner—Cmuttss C. SvL•
LIVAN, of Butler county.
For Auditor General—lion. J'AM29 POLLOCK,
of Northumberland county.
Fur Surveyor Genera[-Rousivr M. BAIR D ,
of Berke county.
These gentlemen are well known throughout
the State. Mr. Sullivan was at one time a mem
ber of the State Senate, and is known as the
father of various reform measures, which have
saved to the tax payers thousands of dollars an
Mr. Pollock is eminently qualified, and one of
the most popular men in Pennsylvania.
Mr. Baird is a practical Surveyor, a gentle.
man of high standing for honesty and integrity ;
and universally esteemed by all who know him.
We verily believe this ticket would sweep
he State, if placed before the people by the
Philadelphia Convention.
Finances of the state:
The Auditor General and State Treasurer
have made a report on the subject of the Finan
ces of the State, for the fiscal year commencing
oil the lot of June next. From this document
it appears that the finances of Pennsylvania are
in the most flourishing condition—that after
paying the appropriations of the two last ses
sions, amounting each to more than four ?nil.
lions of dollars, and applying the money be
longing to the sinking fund, there will be left in
the Treasury, after paying the annual interset,
$26,788 32. This will allow, they say, the ap
plication of $250,000 towards the completion of
the North Branch canal, without any increase
of the State Debt, and without embarrassment
to the Treasury in the payment of appropria
tions to other objects.
The people of the State and of the country at
large, remarks the Telegraph, cannot but be
gratified by a contrast of this condition of the
Treasury, with that exhibited a few years ago.
Then, the annual interest was not regularly
paid—the stocks depreriated—the people groan
ing slider taxation and, in consequence, public
and private prosperity under a cloud. The pres
ent and future prospect is most cheering.
This result ought not to pass without render
ing credit to the present Executive department
of the Government. Gov. JouNs.rox is entitled
to gratitude for his efforts to create a sinking
fund, and his labors to resuscitate the Treasury;
and Mr. BALL, the late State Treasurer, is not.
to be forgotten among the gratuilations felt by
the people. Justice also requires that proper
credit should be rendered to the present Auditor
General, for the industry and ability he has dis
played for several years past, in the management
of that important department of the finances,
the result of which is now felt by the people.
CONGRESS it is generally understood, will not
adjourn before the let of October. A long ses
sion and warm work. Our paper of this week
does not contain the usual summary, but the fact
is, nothing of general interest has transpired,
members being engaged in discussing the only
matter which seems worthy of their attention--
FOURTH DISTRICT, Muss.—The complete re
turn from the fourth district of Massachusetts
shown that Mr. Pa'fry falls short of an election
just 500 votes. The vote stands for Thompson,
W., 4581 ; Palfrey, F. S., 4070, and 809 scat
Bribery and Corruption.
This body met at Williamsport on Wednes
day the 29th ult., and after three days session,
in which there was no little excitement and
management, between the three different seg
ments of the party, accompanied with high
charges of "bribery and corruption," made the
following nominations:
Canal Commissioner—Wm. T. Morrison, of
Montgomery county.
Surveyor General--J. Porter Bromley, Craw.
ford county.
Auditor General.—Ephraim Banks, of Mifflin
Twenty-six ballotings were had before the
first nomination was accomplished.
It was finally made on the afternoon of the
third day of the Convention. The principal
candidates were Edward B. Robley, Nimrod
Strickland, Franklin Vanzant, Seth Clover and
Wm. T. Morrison. Vanzant received 23 votes
on the first ballot, and increased to 37 on the
21st ballot. Morrison received but few votes
till the 20th ballot, which gave him 42, and the
next trial showed a majority for him. In the
evening of the second day, a great com,notion
wa created by a member leaking out n seeret—
that two of the members had been BRIBED !
The members referred to, thinking it best to
make u clean breast of it, came forward and dis
gorged—one of them to the tune of $BO, and the
other $lOO, which they threw down upon the
table before the President, with quite a parade
of virtuous indignation at the idea that they .
could be bribed!
The nomination of the other candidates was
made without much delay.
The following extract from a letter dated Wil
liamsport, May 30, gives the following account
of the Bribery and Corruption alluded to above:
"Mr. Johnson, of Lancaster, then rose and
stated to the Convention that Bribes had been
oth•red to the delegates to obtain their votes, and
charged that corruption of the grossest kind
could be provud against certain individuals,
whom he did not nano-. Upon being pressed to
do so, he referred to Mr. Donahue, of Philadel
phia county, to substantiate his atatement, when
the delegate °Boiled to appeared before the con
vention and threw down upon the table,in front
of the President, eighty dollars, saying "there
the money is, I despise it." Another delegate,
Mr. Green, also from Philadelphia county, an
nounced aloud that he had received one hundred
dollars from the same source. These statements
threw the Convention into the utmost confusion
and excitement, and a motion to appoint a COM
mitten to investigate the whole matter, was a
dopted without objection,"
On the following day the committee reported
tilt Messrs. Renken and Ovenshipe, of Phila
delphia, were the pereons who had bribed the
delegates. Ovenshine is an old State Robber,
who made himself rich on the Columbia Rail
Road during• Porter's administration, and Ran
ken we do not know.
Before adjourning, the bribed and unbrihed
delegates joined in the adoption of resolutions
sustaining the slavery Baltimore Platform, to
which we think a large portion of their party
will take decided exception.
Tremendous Whig Rally.
An immense and most enthusiasti: mass meet
ing of the friends of the National and State Ad
ministrations was held at the Chinese Saloon,
Philadelphia, on Monday evening, June 3, which
was addressed by the Hon. Joseph 11. Ingersoll
Hon. Joseph R. Chandler, Hon. Charles Gibbons
and others. A series of able and patriotic res
olutions were passed.
The North American says "The meeting
was a glorious one for the Whigs of Philadelphia
—a proud evidence of her reeling, and a mani-
fratation most honorable to those in whose hon
or and support it was convened. It was a heart
stirring and convincing testimony that the Whigs
of Philadelphia• are as one man in their political
faith, and that they have an unfaltering reliance
on the ability and purity .of President Taylor
and Governor Johnston."
Nashville Disunion Convention.
We learn that the Southern Convention for
the purpose of considering the subjects of Sla
very and Disunion, assembled at Nashville, on
the 3,1 inst., and organized by appointing Wm.
L. Sharker, of Mississippi, President; Gov.
M'Dowell, of Georgia, Vice President; Wm. F.
Cooper and E. G. Eastman, of Nashville, Sec
The attendance of Delegates is comparatively
slim. The Southern States are not all repre
tented. It is said that Mr. Clay's Compromise
will not be sanctioned by the Convention; and
that Gen. Taylor's plan of settling the Slavery
question will be denounced .most burharouslv.'
Let the Disunionists go ahead, and commit some
overt act, and they will soon find where "Old
Zack" is.
The Census Law tor MO.
This law has been published, and is very com
prehensive. The information which it proposes
to embrace includes population, profession, col
or occupation, place of birth, number of mar
riages, deaths, the persons who can read and

and manumitted, the acres of land improved and
unimproved, the cash value of each farm, the
value of farming implements and machienery,
the live stuck, the produce during the year en

ticular article; the products of industry sail the
values; names of towns, counties and cities;
the aggregate valuation of real and personal es
tate, the amount of taxes assessed, the number
and character of the public schools, the extent
of public libraries ; the number, class and cir

number of criminals; the cost of labor, the av
erage price of board to a laboring man per week,
the average payment of a carpenter per day,
the average wages of a day laborer, the average
wages of a farm hand, the number and value of
the churches, and indeed every species of social
statistics which can make those kind of tables
valuable as sources of public information and

New Coins.
A bill on this subject, presented to the U. S.
Senate a few days since, by Mr. Dickinson, con
taining provisions which will be greatly promo
tive of general convenience and comfort. It di
rects the coinage of one cent pieces; to be ohe
tenth silver and nine tenths copper, and to weigh
twenty grains. It also directs the coinage of
three cent pieces, to be composed of three
fourths silver and one fourth copper, and to
weigh twelve and three eighths grains ; the de
vices to be conspicuously different from those
of the other silver coins.
A peculiarity is attached to this one piece, that
it is to be procured at the mint only let ezehanya
for small Spanish money (fips, levies and quar
ters,) at there current value, and not by weight,
as also for some few other denominations of for
eign silver com current among us. This provis
ion (justly remarks the Philadelphia Bulletin)
will certainly clear the country of the worn
out and irregular currency, long since become
a plague and nuisance, and often a cause of con
tention amongst dealers,
For the Huntingdon Journal.
Candidate for Senator.
Mr. CLARK :--As the time is drawing nenr
when it will be necessary to put in nomination
candidates for the different offices to be filled at
the ensuing election, permit me, through the
columns of your paper, to present the name of
JOSEPH HIGGINS, Esq., of Blair county, as
a suitable person to represent this Senatorial
district, consisting of Huntingdon, Blair and
Cambria counties, in the Legislature for the en•
suing three years. Mr. Biggins is identified
with the Agricultural and Maninacturing inter
ests of the district, and is well qualified to rep
resent them. Via.

On the 4th inst., in Penn Township, Mrs.
MARGARET ENTREKIN, aged 72 years.
[From the Lewistown Democrat.]
Departed this life on the 25th inst., about 0
o'clock P. M., at his residence in this borough,
Rev. JACOB Genesis, of the Baltimore Annual
Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church,
aged 72 years, 2 months and 22 days.
The subject of this brief notice has been long
and favorable known as a laborious and faithful
watchman on the walls of Zion. He entered
the ministry in the Spring of 1800, and has con
tinued to labor in the vineyard of his Master almost unparalleled zeal and industry Inc
flay years, without an intermission of four con
secutive week, at any onetime lurmg that whole
period. Hie sound and vigorous constitution—
which he never allowed to become impaired by
any needless self influlence—enable him to per
form a vast amount of work, and endure great
fatigue and exposure in different climates, at all
seasons and in all kinds of weather. He preach
ed on an average from 250 to 300 sermons annu
ally, besides doing the work of a faithful pastor
and vigilant overseer of the souls under his
charge. It may well be said that he was a sin
gular and extraordinary man. Singular as well
for his strength and originality of trued, energy
I of character, depth of piety prodigious labors,
power of endurance and extensive usefulness, as
for the abstemiou.ness, simplicity, economy and
regularity of his life. He out-lived, out-labor
oil and out-suffered most of his cotein poraries.—
Although good health smiled upon him fur halt
a century, yet during the past three months his
sufferings were extreme. A lir w, trying and
painful season this—yet he passed through it
with christian firmness and resignation. He
anticipated his approaching dessolution with
great composure, and joyfully awaited the sum
mons of his Lord, front a couch of pain to a
crown of glory. The hour came and round Imo
ready to meet it; his work done, his suffering
ended, he tell asleep in the arms of his Redeem
er, and was gathered to his fathers, to author and
die no more.
"Servant of God—well done;
Rest from thy loved employ;
The battle's fought—the viet'ry's won—
Enter your Master's joy."
Thus has fallen one of the oldest and most
faithful ministers of the Gospel. The loss will
be keenly felt, not only by his surviving compan
ion and relat , ons, but by the church of his choice
and the community in general, who have been
greatly benelitted by his labors and liberality.—
Though dead, yet his name and example will
live in the memory oh thousands; and in the
great Judgement, many will rise up and call him
blessed. May the Gull of all grave sustain sup
port and comfort the afflicted widow, and cheer
her lonely pathway, till she shall overtake her
sainted husband in the church triumphant. B.
