Huntingdon, July 2, 1850.
Fur the Huntingdon Journal,
The State Senator•
.Ma.Chanit :—As the time is fast approach
ing when an individual will be placed in nomi
nation for State Senator by the Conferees of this
District, to represent us during the next term ;
and as the subject is beginning to be considera
bly agitated, I have considered it nothing more
than what is due to this county, to say a word
in regard to the matter. Blair county seems
more especially to be urging her claims to that
office; but I think without much foundation.—
For what she has done in by gone days, she de-'
serves the praise of every true-hearted Whig;
but with all, she has done nothing more than her
duty. I cannot conceive what special claims
she has to the Senator this fall. She now has
the Congressman, and will continue to have him
at least daring the next Congressional term.—
Hon. S. Calvin will be re-nominated and re
elected, if we only do our duty; and I think it
would be a little ungenerous to want both the
Senator and Congressman in the same county.—
I know she expact9 Mr. Calvin to be re-nomi-
nated, and he is worthy of re-nomination. lie
deserves the support of every Whig in the dis
trict—nay more, the hearty support of every
Man who feels interested in his own behalf, anal
for the prosperity of his country. Huntingdon
county, I have no doubt, will go hand anal heart
in supporting Calvin, but she cataract concur in
the selection of a State Senator from Blair. If
Blair had not the Congressman, I have no doubt
she would; but as it is, she feels constrained to
throw her strength in favor of %me worthy
man in her own county.
Again, as the editor of the "Journal" not long
since intimated, Huntingdon county contains
more of a population than either of the other
two counties included in this Senatorial district,
more of a population to represent, and is also
the elder of the three, and for that reason is
better entitled to the Senator. What has she
haul since the division of the county 1 Nothing
except what Blair herself has had, an annual
representative in the Legislature ; anal now she
cannot even send a man there without the as
sistance of Huntingdon. Yet she wants both
the Congressman and Senator. It seems to me
if Blair county will give the matter only a short
investigation, she must inevitably conclude that
she is not entitled to the Senator this tall, but
that Huntingdon is, and will not hesitate to
throw her influence to that effect. Huntingdon
county wants no more than what she feels her
self entitled to, and her rights she is ready to
assert and maintain. She is also ready anal wil
ling to support both Blair and Cambria in what
ever is due them, and will stand to the flag of
the party to the last moment of her life.

The Next Election.---Sheriff.
Mn. CLARK :-As the time is fast approach
ing when nominations will be made for the res
pective offices which will be vacant this full, I
have thought it quite advisable to say a word
in regard to the matter. It is not oaten I feel it
a duty to speak through the public prom But
this occasiou demands it, and I shall endeavor to
make a few suggestions.
If we, as a Tarty, wish to accomplish mutt.,
and present mir ranks unbroken, we slionld en
deavor to pursue that course which is best cal
culated to effect harmony and unanimity among
us. Faction and disunion are scarcely ever at
tended with any beneficial results. I understand
there are several applicants from various sec
tions of the county, for the different offices to be
filled at the coming fall election. Now, what
course are we to adopt, in order to satisfy all
these I I presume none can be devised. Some
of the sections of the county from which candi
dates have announced themselves, are entitled to
nominations, and others are not; and some of
the aspirants are entitled to the offices which
they are asking, and others are not. It seems
to me we ought to make our nominations from
those sections which are entitled to them;
which have also capable individuals to fill the
different offices. There are, I understand, sev
eral candidates out for the office of Sheriff:—
Now, I wish it to be understood, that when I
speak in favor of any one of then;, I am not de
crying the rest. They all may be good men for
aught I know. lam not acquainted with any
except one or two. I intend, on this occasion,
to advocate the right Trough Creek Valley has
to the office of Sheriff. She is entitled to it for
two good reasons; first, because she has never
been permitted to furnish a candidate for any
important office of the county; and second, she
has always done as much, and been as efficient
in promoting the intereste of our party, as any
other section of the county. This cannot be de
nied by anyone who knows her claims. I there
fore recommend the nomination of BENJAMIN
T. GLASGOW, of Union township, for the of
fice of Sheriff; who is on efficient, consistent and
industrious Whig. He is worthy the offici, and
will fill it, if elected, to the satisfaction of all.
His business habits fully qualify him for the
duties of Sheriff , I feel confident that the opin
ions of a majority of the citizens of this town
ehip coincide with the above. We care nothing
about any office for ourselves, but we feel like
advocating the rights of the section I have allu
ded to. And the above named individual is our
choice, and we are resolved to support him.
Arr..° D tortrry.—Here is a waif—flouting
about on the sea of print, without an owner—
which is as full of truth as an egg is of meat :
The best proof of a vulgar man is to be found
is the quantity of dignity that he wraps himself
up in. In the opinion of such men, the only way
to set a proper value on yourself is to treat with
contempt everybody else. Such men are gen
erally rich and very ignorant. The "biggest
feeling" man we ever knew was a swelling
blockhead, who imagined that the tragedy of
Hamlet was written by Damon and Pythias, and
who couldn't tell, without consulting his varlet
'mount, whether Shakspeare was the author of
Macbeth, or Macbeth the author of Shakspeare.
As a general thing, your dignified men are great
asses. They keep at n distance, that their
neighbors may not discover what counterfeits
they are. Across the street, a galvanic watch
appears to be bullion. Men are :ike ships—the
more they contain the lower they carry their
From California,
The steamer Cresent City arrived at New
York on the 24th, with later intelligence from
all parts of California, and $250,000 in gold
Reports from the mining portions of the coun
try, both north and south, continue to be of the
most favorable nature. The general state of
health at the placers also is good.
We regret to state that another destructive
fire occurred at Sas Francisco on the night of
May 4th, by which nearly one-third of the city
was reduced to ashes, and the probable loss is
estimated at $500,000. The United States, the
El Dorado, Delmonico's ' and the Verandah ho
tels were among the buildings burnt.
In six days there arrived at !San Francisco
seventy-six vessels freighted with cargoes to
find a market there.
Joshua Dungan Esq.
The Bucks County Intoiligencer contains a
timely and able reference to the nominees of the
late Whig Convention for the several State offi
ces, from which we take the following notice of
Joshua Dungan, Esq., the Whig candidate for
Canal Commissioner, who it is known is a citi
zen of Bucks county. It is a just tribute to his
worth. The ferret egeorese says :
Joshua Dungan, the choice of the Convention
for Canal Commissioner, is a citizen of our own
county, a native of our own soil, identified with
our own interests and those of our beloved Com
monwealth. Born and bred upon the farm on
which he nosy resides, and whic:i he cultivates
with a judgment matured and enlightened by
long study and experience, he is one of our most
skillful agriculturists. Though always taking a
lively interest in questions of state and national
policy, and ever ready to lend a hand in aid to
establish and maintain the principles of the par
ty with which he is identified, from a sincere
conviction of their beneficent influence upon the
country, his attention has been more particular
ly directed to the interests of his profession,
and its improvement and elevation. Hence he
was led to unite with others, seven years ago
in organising an association of armers under the
title of the "Bucks County Agricultural Socie
ty." This enterprise, of which Mr. Dungan
has been one of the fathers and pillars, has al
ready grown in importance and usefulness, until
it is scarcely second to any similar institution
in the State. His several addresses before this
society, to which we may take occasion to re
fer hereafter, evince an honorable enthusiasm in
his occupation, a highly cultivated mind, and a
knowledge drawn from observation, experience
and extensive study,, which constitute some of
the highest adornments of the character of the
A merit,' agriculturist. These characteristics,
added to his plain, unostentations manners, his
sterling integrity, his liberality of sentiment,
and social qualities as a citizen and neighbor,
trove endeared him to an extensive circle of ac
quaintances and friends. All who know him
respect and esteem him, and we hope it may'
not prove presumptuous in us to predict that his
character will disarm partisan rancor and extort
justice from his political opponents.
As to qualifications, it is 110 disparagement of
others to say that Mr. Dungan is not inferior to
any one that has been spoken of for the office in
either party, and far superior to the respectable
gentleman, who has been selected as Lis com
petitor. His views of State policy, with refer
ence to our system of improvement, accord with
those of our present patriotic Executive; and
.his efforts would therefore be directed to a eon
sumation of that policy—a husbanding of the
resources of the commonwealth, with a view to
the perfection of her system, and an early ex
tinguishment of her debt—so that she may be
restored to that condition of independence and
prosperity to which her position and resources
entitle her.
Bucks county justly feels proud of the honor
conferred upon her by the selection of one of
her most eminent citizens for so important a sta
tion, and will show it by a hearty response at
the polls. Mr. Dungan is emphatically one of
the people; and as such we can appeal with
confidence to the voters of the State to support
him. He has never held a public office ; though
he enjoyed the honor of being one of the Elec
tors who cast the vote or Pennsylvania, in MB.
for Zachary Taylor and Millard Fillmore. He
is identified with no cliques nor factions, but
when elected will devote his energies to El faith
ful discharge of his official duties. As the pub.
lic interest would be promoted by a representa
tion of both parties in the Canal Board—a fact
admitted by the liberal portion of our opponents
—and Mr. Dungan being unexceptionable in
character and qualifications, we look with con
fidence for his triumphant election.
Henry W. Snyder.
The Union Star, published in the county in
which Henry W. Snyder, the Whig candidate
for Auditor General resides, in a notice of him,
says he is the son of Simon Snyder, whose ad
ministration as Governor of Pennsylvania will
ever rellect honor upon his name and cause his
memory to be cherished by all those who love
and value the prosperity of the Old Keystone
State. We need not refer our German friends,
says the Star, to the conduct of Simon Snyder
while Governor. They already know it. They
know him to have been a prudent, sound and
practical statesman, and our good old Common
wealth prospered greatly during his administra
tion. His son, Henry W. Snyder, our candidate
for Auditor General, has inherited his father's
integrity and sound judgment. It is altogether
superfluous for us to tell the people of Union
county, that Mr. Snyder is eminently qualified
to fill this office. But we would send it abroad
throughout the Commonwealth as the anited
voice of Union county, that we who know him,
can and do hear testimony of his honesty, integ
rity and ability. As an accountant Mr. Snyder
has few if any superiors. He possesses excel
lent business habits, an obliging disposition, an
enlarged experience, and every other qualifica
tion requisite to make a popular, faithful and
competent officer. Mr. Snyder being of Ger
man descent Las a thorough knowledge of that
language, and is identified with the interests and
feelings of our German population. His name
will be a tower of strength in the German por
tions of our state; and wherever the friends
and admirers of Old Simon Snyder live, Henry
W. Snyder we predict, will receive a strong
A GALLANT RESCCE.-A young lady living at
Fort Hamilton, saved a gentleman, one day last
week from the double death of drowning and be
ing crushed. It appears that the steamboat had
thrown its plank to the wharf, and that a gentle
man, in hurry to land, attempted to "walk the
plank" before the boat woe secured. By some
motion of the vessel ho was percipitated into the
big drink, and in a moment - longer would have
been crushed between the boat and the wharf.
A young lady standing 1,5 —a pretty courageous
muscular, and charming young lady—at once
leaned over and seized the dapper little fellow
by his coat collar, as he floundered in the briny
element, and lifted him safely to terra firma.

came home intoxicated, took down his rille,
fired at his wife, and the ball just grazing her
