Whig State Convention.
The Whig State Convention will assemble
to-morrow in Philadelphia. Wehope the result

lessly jumping from the Cars when they were in
On Thursday last, Mr. ROBERT RAY and his
Lis son from the :ountry, were seriously injured
by jumping off the hand-car, when it was going
at a rapid rate. Mr. Ray's head was so badly
cut and bruised, that for a time his recovery was
considered doubtful. We are glad to learn, how
ever, that he is now convalescent.
A few evenings since, two small boys who
were standing on the track, at the Depot, on the
arrival of the Cars, very narrowly escaped being
run over by the Locomotive. But for the timely
interference of two gentlemen ; they would un
doubtedly have been severely injured, if not
killed. We observe that large numbers of small
boys are in the habit of congregating about the
Depot in tie evening, and recklessly jumping in
and out of the Cars, when they are in motion ;
and it is a matter of astonishment that so few
accidents have occurred. To old and young
alike, we would say, ' , look out for the Engine
when the bell rings," and keep off the track.

prove an injury rather than a benefit. Every

WHIG SHNTI3IENT IN 0410. -.-The Whig State
Convention of Obio, at its recent session, passed
strong resolutions approving of the course of
President Taylor's administration.
I:l7"The Nashville Convention adjourned last
Tharsday, to meet again in six weeks.
The President and Mr. Clay.
"The official manifestation of the hostility of
the Executive to the Compromise scheme, has
produced a deep impression here. The inter
ference of the Execiitive, at this time, when the
question is ao much embarrassed by southern
defection and northern faction, is considered as
weak and vindictive."—Washington corres
pondence of a Loral°. paper.
This attempt to falsify the position of Gen.
Taylor, is characteristic of Locofocoism. We
have seen nothing to justify this charge of "Ex
ecutive interference." Long ago, in the dis
charge of a constitutional duty, Gin. Taylor
sent in his California message. He could not
have withheld that message, without a palpable
violation of his oath. Its suggestions were as
wise and patriotic as they were appropriate and
timely. The message itself was unexceptiona
ble in spirit and language, and eminently accept
able to the mass of the people.
But it was not acceptable to distinguished
members of the Senate. A different plan of
Compromise was proposed. California was
hitched an to other and entirely dissimilar pro
jects. Her admission into the Union was made
dependent upon the organization of territorial
governments for New Mexico and Utah; upon
the adjustment of the boundaries of Texas; up
on the fugitive slave bill, and upon the abolition
of the slave trade in the District of Columbia.
These antagonist schemes, thus combined, were
urged as a substitute for the simple yet efficient
plan of the President. Studied efforts were
made, in various quarters, to create the impres
sion that the President had abandoned his own
plan for that of the Committee. This conver
sion was heralded, as a fact, by the Washington
Union and its hundred echoes. Washington
letter-writers gave out similar intimations, and
the public were begianing to believe that, for
the first time in his life, Gen. Taylor had "sur
rendered." It was while these rumors were
floating through a thousand channels, uncontra
dieted, that the Republic stamped them as un
founded, and added that the President adhered to
his own plan of compromise, as that best calcu
lated to quiet existing dissensions.
What "Executive interference" was there in
this I It was certainly proper that the widely
circulated falsehood should be contradicted, and
that Gen. Taylor's friends should know that in
gaining the Executive chair, he has not lost his
character. Those most displeased with this
formal denial of a mischievous falsehood, were
willing enough to use that falsehood to secure
friends to a scheme opposed to that of the Pre
sident. If what they asserted had been true,
we would have heard nothing about "Executive
interference." This accusation is only brought
against him when it is formally announced that
he adheres to his original plan.
But even if it were the duty of the President
to interfere with the action of Congress, which
it is not, there are no just grounds for Mr. Clay's
course. We cannot but regard his recent at
tack upon the Whig Administration as unprovo
ked, ungenerous and unjust. Such a course
might be very appropriate for a “bitter-ender,"
but we humbly conceive it is not in keeping
with the character of the illustrious Kentucky
Statesman. We fear it argues a foregone con
clusion, a deliberate pre-determination on the
part of the distinguished orator, to oppose the
Whig Administration. With all his noble qual
ities, he has his faults; and among these is a
dictatorial spirit, usually devoted to great ends,
but frequently productive of mischievous con
sequences to himself and friends.
In our judgment, the plan of the President has
in it far more of the spirit of compromise, and
evinces a much juster appreciation of the pre
cise point on which compromise is needed, than
that of Mr. Clay. And it seems, therefore, em
inently for the interest of the Union, that con
siderate men of all sections should sTarin By THE
ADMINISTRATION upon this subject.
This body held an adjourned meeting, in the
Presbyterian Church in this place, on Tuesday
and Wednesday of last week. The chief object
of the meeting was the Licensure and Ordination
of Mr. JAMES ST. OEMS., of this place, as an
Evangelist, with a view to a Foreign Mission to
Upper India, which he has chosen as his field of
Minieterial labor. The Presbytery was well
attended, and the audience large. The occasion
was interesting, and all the services solemn and
impressive. The interest was greatly height
ened by the youthful appearance of the Candi
date—the acceptable manner in which he ac
quitted himself—the presence of his aged father
and mother, his brothers, sisters, and numerous
relatives and neighbors, who were assembled to
witness his voluntary dedication of himself to
the service of his Divine Master. tie expects,
Providence permitting, to leave his native land
in Juty or August, probably never to return, or
if he should, he can scarcely indulge the hope of
meeting with his parents, or even all his broth
ers, sisters and near relations.
The call of the Huntingdon Presbyterian Con.
gregation for the services of the Rev. LOWMAN
P. H.twEs was presented to the Presbytery, and
unanimously approved; and the congregation
were authorized to prosecute the call.
Further intelligence from Cuba is awaited
with no little anxiety. From the last advices
received, and which are deemed of a reliable
character, it appears that four of the five pris
oners taken at Cardenas had been shot ; that two
vessels., sailingunder the American flag, and hav
ing on board one hundred and five men, had been
captured by a Spanish naval force at the island
of Contey, which in situated on the northeast
coast of Yucatan, and belongs to Mexico; that
a portion of these men had been conveyed to
Havana, and that the others were daily expected ;
and that an interview with those who had been
taken to Havana had been asked for by the com
manding officer of our naval force there, and
been refused by the captain-general..

Nothing of interest was done in either House
last week. The Compromise is still under dis
cussion in the Senate, and its fate is still uncer
tain. Amendment after amendment has been
offered and discussed, but it has as yet under
gone no alteration. Mr. Benton has given no
tice that he would on Monday (yesterday) move
its indefinite postponement. The vote on that
motion will be a teat vote, as to whether there
is a majority in the Senate in favor of the gen
eral principles of the bill or not. As to the
fate of this, many of its friends assert that it
will certainly pass both Houses, while others
who profess to be equally well acquainted with
the minds of members, say that it cannot pass
the Senate, and that if it should, it will certainly
be killed in the House.
Even should the bill pass, we cannot see how
it can remedy the evil for which it is considered
the great panacea; but on the contrary,we think
it will only increase the agitation on the subject,
and lead to greater difficulties in the future.—
Better do nothing than do this; and hence the
plan of President Taylor should be adopted.
In the House of Representatives, on Wednes
day last, the debate on the California question
was brought to a close at one o'clock, in accor
dance with the terms of a resolution previously
adopted. The time has now arrived for voting
on the admission of California; but there seems
a determination on the part of the opponents of
that measure to prevent a direct vote being ta
ken, and hence the session of the House was the
scene of th• greatest confusion. We shall, how
ever, soon expect to have some votes taken,
when there will be some prospect for a termina
tion of the matter, which every one is now de
sirous to see, providing that termination is not
disgraceful to the country.
The Weather.--Summer Visiters.
The weather, since the advent of warm-hearted
June, has been delightful. All creation rejoice
and welcome the approach of Summer—
"ln light and airy dress arrayed,
Festooned with buds and flowers."
As Willis beautifully expresses it, "Nature,
with her delicate ear, hath heard the drooping of
the velvet foot of June," and the heart of the
earth unfolds its foliage, like the summer rose,
imparting a quickening tide of life and beauty to
everything in Nature. The "hills and the
dales" are all decorated with a mantle of deli
cate green—the fields are covered with rich and
luxuriant crops, just bursting into head—the
little birds make the green woods echo with
their merry songs, and the busy bee kisses the,
opening bud at early dawn with raptures of de
light—bright and beautiful landscapes meet the
eye in every direction—and every passing breeze
is laden with sweet-scented perfumes. In the
language of an honored bard
"The earth is clad in green,
The land is strewed with flowers."
The scenery in this neighborhood, at all times
romantic, now presents to the eye of the lover
of Nature a sublimity of grandeur very rarely
equalled. Those of our city friends who desire
to while away a few weeks or months pleasant
ly in the country, during the warm season,
should by all means come to Huntingdon. They
will find our citizens sociable, hospitable, intel
ligent and refined—our Hotels equal to those of
any country town in the State—our mountain
air pure and refreshing as the breath of angels—
our water, "sparkling and bright" from Nature's
fountains, and pure as that which gushed from
the rock in the wilderness at the magic touch of
the venerable Moses—and everythirg, in fact,
to render a sojourn among us highly agreeable
and beneficial. (tar town is beautifully and
healthfully located on the banks of the "blue
Juniata," in the midst of the moat beautiful
mountain scenery, and but one day's ride in the
Cars from Philadelphia. Come on then, ye pent
up denizens of the hot and crowded city—rusti
cate fora season in this delightful region, and en
joy the benefit of our pure, invigorating, health
imparting mountain air, and you will never re
gret it. Come to Huntingdon !
Gen. Taylor anti the Tariff.
The Hon. Mr. Casey, of Pennsylvania, in a
letter to his constituents, reiterating his purpose
of declining a re-nomination to Congress, while
speaking of the almost hopeless chances of any,
modification of the Polk tariff, pays the follow
ing well-merited tribute to our good President
and his enlightened Secretary of the Treasury:
" To the patriotic and gallant Chief Magis
trate of the nation, for the open and manly stand
he has taken in his annual message on this sub
ject, and to the talented Secretary, for the sew
and interesting lights in which he presents this
great question in his report, as well as for the
masterly and unanswerable arguments by which
he urges it upon the attention of Congress and
the country, the nation, and Pennsylvania espe
cially, owe a lasting debt of gratitude. To the
friends of this great measure I would only say,
that if they remain true to their policy and their
own best interests, they most assuredly must
and will ultimately triumph." .
The Glorious tourtii.
The Fourth of July is rapidly approaching on
the swift steam-car of Time, and we observe
that the citizens of other places are making pre
parations for an appropriate observance of the
day. Are we to have a celebration in Hunting
don, or will our citizens permit the Birth Day
of Liberty to pass by unhonored and unobserved!
We pause for a reply !
Stand by Them
The Whig Conventions of Dauphin, Alle
gheny, Lancaster, Bedford and other counties
passed resolutions strongly approving of the
course of the State and National Administra
tions. This is right. President TayLoa and

Whig party, and it is the duty of all Whigs to

DUTY OF THE WIDGS.
Stand by the President.
4, Stand by him, because his actions are based
upon right. Stand by him because when fac
tion, in the North and in the South, threw the
apple of discord among the people's representa
tives, in the vain hope that amid the confusion
of the elements, they might float upon the sur
face, he with calmness, judgement, and decision,
marked out a course which, while it interfered
with the rights of none, met the claim of all in
conformity with the Constitution, law and hu
manity. . .
Stand by him, because when disunion was
made a daily theme, and the stoutest hearts were
clouded with forebodings, he bade the troubled
elements be 'till, and poured oil upon the waters
of discord. Stand by him, because he is a Whig
in profession and practice. Stand by him, be
cause he firmly maintains the old, time-tried,
and time-honored principles of the Whig party
that the taxes collected from the people should
be devoted to the advancement of their interests
the protection of their commerce, and the im
provement of their great public works.
Stand by him, because while welcoming
foreigners to our shore, he regards the encour
agement of American industry as an object of
tie first importance. Stand by him, because,
while declining to interfere in the least with the
representative or judicial departments, he main
tains with dignity the independence of the Ex
ecutive portion of our Government.
And stand by him, because in all things he
has shown himself worthy of the exalted posi
tion in which Americans have placed him."
These impressive words, which we quote
from the Cleveland Herald, combine both fact
and prophecy. The people have stood by Gen
eral TAYLOR, and we have no fears but that they
will stand by him again—and the more devoted
ly as the emergency may seem more exigent.—
Standing aloof from the strife of sections and of
factions, he holds a steadfast position upon the
ground of the Constitution. hlaving never beer,
known to surrender a position or to be driven
from one, it may be safely inferred that where
he stands he means to stand.
In the eloquent language of a distinguished
Whig, Gen. TAYLOR has often before been pla
ced in circumstances of more appalling difficul
ties than those which now beset him, and he has
not only always extricated himself, but those
also who were entrusted to his charge; and he
will do it again. He who has never yet submit
ted to defeat, in whose vocabulary the word
surrender is not to be found—he whose very
presence could make the thin but daring ranks
of raw recruits a perfect wall of fire, over, or
around, or through which the dark and dense ar
ray of Mexican cavalry could not ride—he, we
say, will yet deliver us, if delivery we shall need.
That brave heart, and that strong arm, and that
indomitable will, if God shall spare his life, will
for years to come, bear aloft the gorgeous ensign
of the republic, with its stripes untarnished,
and its stars undimmed ; or, if fail it must while
his hand grasps it, it will be but to make his
winding sheet. And when the history of all
those who now attempt to traduce the character
of General Taylor shall be forgotten and swept
away among the cobwebs of the past, his name
will live in memory, in history, and in song, a
beacon light to guide the American youth up
the steps of fame, and conduct him to the gates
Our patriotic President is deeply enshrined in
the hearts of all true Whigs, and the efforts of
unprincipled factionists to "head" and un-Whig
the Old Hero, will only result in their own po
litical ruin. The Whigs of Pennsylvania will

In the Democratic State of South Carolina,
no man can hold a seat in the House of Repre
sentatives, unless he holds a freehold estate of
five hundred acres of land and ten negroes."
The above sa3 s the York Republican supplies
a pretty fair practical commentary on the loud
professions which Locofocoism is constantly
making of its love for Freedom and Equality,
and intense hatred of every thing like Aristoc
racy. No Whig State can be found in the Union
whose Constitution tolerates such an aristocrat
ic provision as that above cited from the law of
ultra democratic ! South Carolina. It is only
in that other ultra democratic State of New
Hampshire that Catholics are excluded from
holding office; and in Virginia, such is its demo
cratic devotion to property in preference to per
sons, that a man can vote in every County in
which he holds real estate, while one who has
no real estate or is not a house-holder, cannot
vote at ail !
Arrest of General Lopez.
We learn that the United States District At
torney at New Orleans, acting under instruc

direction of the President, caused Geneva! LOPEZ

THE BRITISH TARIFF.
Paralysis in Manufactures.
The Iron interests of New York, as in Penn
alvania, and Maryland, and Virginia, are forced
to succumb to the ruinous competition of British
Iron-masters and the low-priced labor of fbreign
countries. The Clinton Whig, published in
Clinton county, N. Y., states that of 41 Fo'rge
fires on the Saranic river, is 1818, twenty-one
had been put out previous to the first of January
last, and since that time fourteen of the remain
ing twenty have also been extinguished, leaving
but 6of the 40 in operation. The Whig adds
"By this necessary suspension of business,
more than five °hundred men have been thrown
out of work, and over 2,000 women and chil
dren, dependent apon them for bread, are depri
ved of the comforts which they have heretofore
enjoyed. In addition to this, eight of the eigh
teen fires on the Salmon river have been put out
and others will follow. So on the Ausable. 01
the fifty-four there, probably not a dozen will be
kept up through the summer. At these three
points alone, over fifteen hundred men, hereto
fore earning from $1 to $2 per day, will be
thrown out of work—and the $2,000 a day which
they have been earning, will go, practically, in
to the pockets of the iron workers of Europe."
Such is the withering effects of the present
Locofoco Tariff—a measure that enriches British
manufacturers and feeds British paupers, while
it paralyses American industry and impoverishes
American Mechanics and Laborers ! Our very
erudite neighbor of the G/obe, is trying to make
his readers believe that the paralysis in manu
factures, the failures and stoppages of manufac
turing establishments, are all the result of a
combination to make "Whig capital" and cause
a revision of the Tariff, for which he contends
there is not the remotest necessity. The cau
ses which have operated and are operating di
rectly against the manufacturing interests of our
country, lie open to every man's observation.—
They rest mainly in the excessive importations
and consumption of foreign manufactures, as any
one may see who will examine the usual sources
of information for such intelligence. The public
stocks of the country, the credit of the country,
and the money of the country, are flowing regu
larly to Europe, and are paid for in BRITISH
IRON and other articles of foreign manufacture.
It is utterly idle and absurd to pretend that labor
here can be prosperous under such a state of the
case; with our Furnaces, Forges and Rolling
Mills idle, our Factories suspending, and a gen
depression in all the departments of labor.
And the answer to all this is, that it is "a trick
of the capitalists !"
Q7-We see that the Washington Uaiem and

For the Huntingdon Journal,
The "Brief Review:9
MR. CLARK:—I noticed in last week's Jour
nal "a brief review of your correspondent,"
over the signature of "Peres." My intection
was to pass it over in silence, as it deserves;
but I have since thought, as his criticism con
tains so much deepness of mind displayed, he
would not likely understand my meaning, and
have therefore concluded to merely allude to it,
for it must be regarded by every one, even the
mns:itliterate, as a perfect failitra as a criticism.
The gentleman must certainly feel ashamed of
it sirce he has seen it published, if he possesses
the least degree of self-respect. His whole cri
ticism is nothing but a batch of grammatical and
rhetorical blunders. A man acting in the ca
pacity he does, ought, at leant be able to spell
correctly, and understand english grammar, or
quit the profession. For instance, the very first
sentence of bit brief review contains two errors.
"A writer in your pipet', who signt himself
Plebs, seems to venture upon a tract that com
mon sinners dare not meddle with." Did the
learned critic ever hear of a writer being ice a
paper) And how does it sound to say meddle
with a tract ? Again, he says, "such reduh
dency of epithets, &e., produce satiety and dis
gust." His english grammar should have taught
him, the nominative rase governs the verb. The
gentleman, I think, entertains a very vague idea
of the definition of an Ignoratioclenchi, for &en
chi, I suppose. I would refer the learned critic
to Upham's Mental Philosophy, or Whately's
Logic, for a plain, simple definition. I think
he will find one there to suit his faculty of com
prehension. But Patrea should not become dis
couraged at what I am saying; he may yet be
come a critic.
Q what cutting, keen, life-extinguishing sar
casm he uses. 0 how lam pining under it. I
am afraid its influence will prove fatal. And
how shocking will it be to the feelings of Patres
to be the came of a tellow-mortal's death ! Like
poor Keats I will perish under the severity of
criticism. It is hard ! Will he not, in hie next,
be more lenient ? He ought to remember that
his remarks have been much severer than he in
tended them; but I would like much to hear
from him again. Come, Patres, let us hear from
you again—you will gain notoriety.
