Dr. NVebsier's Confession.
We devote considerable space to giving the
confession of Dr. Webster of the murder of Dr.
Purkman. It is a somewhat extraordinary doll:
went, when we consider that some months' pre
vious he sent a petition to the pardoning paver
of Massachusetts, in which he solemnly asserted
his innocence, and called upon the searcher of
all hearts to witness the truth of his assertion.
The Boston Courier, in commenting upon this
" , It will silence effectually those presumptu
ous and impertinent cavillers, who, in the real
or affected belief of Webster's innocence, have
rudely assailed the character of the Massachti ,

the prisorer. 'the chnracter of the bench stands

A Titlo TO THE
Celebration at Cassrille.
There being no arrangements for a celebration
of the Fourth in Huntingdon, we concluded to
visit Cassville, and celebrate the day with the
citizens of that place and vicinity, where they
never fail to honor our Nation/it Anniversary in
a becoming and patriotic manner.
Accordingly, on the afternoon of the 3d, in
company with a friend, we set out for the town
above Mentioned. Wishing to see as much of
the country, and as many of our fellow-citizens
as possible, we took the Woodcock valley route,
and were amply repaid for so doing, by the
"sights which we seen." This valley is one of
the richest in the county, end compares with any
soil in the State for Agricultural purposes.—
The weather was warm, but a tine breeze was
stirring, which, together with the fragrance of
the flowers, the (to us) grateful scent from the
itete , rnown grass, awl the delight our eye expe
rienced in gazing upon the unsurpassed crops of
.cheat which appeared on every farm, fast ripen
ing for the harvest, made us unmindful of the
hot rayr of the sun, and coined us to be filled
with mingled emotions of delight and gratititde,
as we moved up this delightful valley. Between
Hfintingdon and Markelsburg, we made but two
short pauses, the first at the store of Mr. CAMP
EELt, in M'COnnellstown, and the secondat the
house of our friend, Commissioner PEIGHTM, at
both of which places we were kindly invited to
partake of refreshing hospitality, for which we
return our thanks: On our arrival at Marbles
burg, we called on our friend Mr. LrTt.e, the
Postmaster, by whom we were pleasantly and
kindly entertained f6r a short time, and after
seeing our friend Mr. A. NEFF, and some of the
other citizens, we continued our journey. At
this /Mint we left Woodcock abruptly, passed a
short distance down James' Creek, to near the
morrth of Trangh Creek, where we ascended the
road lying along this stream, leading to' Paradise
Furnace. The scenery hete, for a short distance,
is the most wild and picturesque imaginable;
and is well worth a visit to behold. At about
seven o'clock in the evening we arrived at the
"Mountain Home" of JACOB CRESSWELL, Esq.,
known as Savage's Forge, where we were kind
ly tendered, and partook of, a grateful repast,
prepared by his excellent lady. We then pro-
ceeded to Paradise Furnace, and passed the night
with our friend Mr. Sliesi.tv, fhe Manager,
thau whom none knows better how to receive
and entertain his friends. On the morning of
the Fourth, after partaking of a fine breakfast,
we started for Cassville. On the way we met
several old friends, made some new acquaintan
ces, and procured a few good subscribers to the
Journal. Between the Furnace and Cassville,
we had the pleasure of seeing many fine farms,
all richly laden with excellent crops of grain and
grass. This region is rapidly improving, and
will soon be an important section of Huntingdon
On ont arrival at Cassville, we found every
thing ready for the celebration. In a short time
a protessibn was formed, consisting of two large
companies of weß drilled and handsomely equip
ped military, the Sunday Schools of the town
and vicinity; and citizens generally, of both set
es, the Whole under the direction of Mr. DAVID
SrEvaii, Chief Marshal, and forming as impo
sing and interesting a procession as we have
witnessed for a long time. After marching for
some time, the company organized into a meet
ing, at a spot selected for the purpose, opposite
the residence of Mr. Robert Speer. The exer
cises *etc' opened with prayer. The Declara
tion of Independence was read by JACOB Ca.'s
wELT., Esq., in the distinct and usual good style
of that gentleman. A truly eloquent oration
was then delivered by Rev. Mr. BLAND, of the
Methodist Episcopal church, which was listened
to with great interest and attention. When Mr.
B. had con - added, Gen. SPEY,, delivered a neat ,
and handsome address to the military, anti was
followed by Col. CORNYN, Rev. Mr. Wu sox,
and another gentleman whose name we have
forgotten, in brief and appropriate addresses.—
These exercises were enlivened, at intervals,
with sonl-stirring martial music. Al the con.
clnsion of the screeches, after partaking of the
refreshments provided, the company adjourned,
all seeming delighted with the exercises in which
they bad participated.
We deem it but justice to say that the citi
zens of Cassville and vicinity deserve great
credit kn. the truly handsome and appropriate
manner in which they celebrated our late Na
tional Anniversary. It is an evidence that the
same Ore spirit of patriotism which prompted
our forefathers to resist oppression and achieve
our National Independence, burns brightly in
At about 4 o'clock ; after getting a number of
excellent subscribers to the "Journal," we star
ted for home; by the near route leading a:ross
Terrace Mduntain, to Raystown Branch. Space
fails us to minutely describe Traugh Creek Val
, ley. To judge, however, from the appearance
of the present crops, the intelligence, hospitality
and universal kindness of the citizens, if we had
the means to buy a farm, we would as soon lo
cate there, as any where no* in mind. The
crops of grain and grass in Traugh Creek this
year, compare with limestone land anywhere.—
The wheat stands beautifully on the fields, and
!s the "clean wheat," perfectly free from weeds
or grass. But we must defer further descrip
tion of this beautiful part of our county to an
In conelJajon, we return our thanks for the
universal kindness shown us on this Fourth of
July trip, also for the subscribers we received,
and to the friends wit° kindly aided us in pro
curing them. We shall try to deserve all the
patronage we receive, Two inferences, and we
are done. First: The citizens of Penn, Todd
and Cass townships will have more produce to
sell this year than ever before. Second : They
will give, combined, a most thundering Whig
majority on the second Tuesday of October next.

Philadelphia markets, since last week. There

"What is doing in Congress 1" This is the
question daily asked by the people. We answer,
worse than nothing. The Compromise Bill is
still pending in the Senate. It should and we
' think will be defeated when the vote is taken.
The recent movement of Col. Monroe, in New
Mexico, is made the occasion for more Southern
bluster. Senate/8 and members from the South
are again talking about heading armies to defend
Southern rights. Mr. BELL, of Tennessee, has
made a speech in defence of the Presid,nt's
plan, and expressed his indifference for the fate
of the Compromise. Mr. Coorita, of this State,
has made a speech in favor of the bill. We have
not seen this speech, and hence cannot say Aut
excuse he makes for deserting the party which
elected him, on this important question. Mr.
Seward, of New York, has made a most power-
ful and unanswerable speech against the Com
promise, and in favor of Free Soil. , All agree
in representing this speech as one of the greatest
of the session. Mr. Seward will receive the
thanks of the citizens of the entire North, for
his manly defence of their principles. That
the Omnibus or Compromise Bill will not stifle
sectional disputes is obvious, because scarcely
any two wholly agree in opinion as to its pro
visions ; and if the votes of the twenty-nine
States out of the thirty, ca rising the Union,
could be had on that for porch ng New Mexico
from Texas, it is believed they would all be in
the negative. The idea of paying Texas ten or
twelve millions of dollars for what the United
States has already paid for to Mexico, is pre
posterous. Texas herself has cost the Union
niece tlinn one hundred millions of dollars, be
sides some fifty thousand of her gallant sons, and
no one can foretel *Bert the Union will have
done paying in money and blood for this "Lone
Star"—the pet of Locofocoism.
A Small Movement.
The Daily News, of Satinklay last, contains a
call for a meeting of the Whigs favorable to the
passage of Mr. Clay's compromise, slave-catch
ing bill, to be held last evening The move
ment is headed by Charles Gibbons, Esq., and a
few factious spirits, who are still smarting under
the defeat their disorganizing schemes met with
in the Whig State Convention. The object of
these men is well understood. They have'been
disappointed in getting office, and by way of re--
venge, are now attempting to embarrass the ad-
ministrations of TAYLOR and Jonss•rox. , If ie
however, a small movement, headed by mall
men, and therefore worthy of but little notice
In place of injuring either the National or State
Administrations, the leaders will simply destroy
what little standing they may heretofore have
had with the Whig party.
Friend CIAK, of the Huntingdon Jour
nal, we have not received a copy of your valua
ble Whig paper, for several weeks. What is

one of the most interesting weeklies on our list,

J. Porter Brawley.
The above named gentleman is the Locofoco
candidate for Surveyor General. And we have
no hesitation in asserting that every respectable
Locofoco who knows the man—who is fully a
ware of his moral and political depravity—is
heartily ashamed of him Cs a candidate. Indeed,
we know this to be the case. We heard a dem
ocrat of high standing remark, the other day,
that "Brawley was a disgrace to the party, but
that he was not aufficientiy acquainted through
out the State to defeat him."
The following resolutions were adopted at a
large Locofaco meeting held in Crawford coun
ty, Mr. Brewley's place of residence, preeiotts
to the meeting of the State Convention which
placed him in nomination :
tat. That it is necessary for the Democratic
State Convention to nominate candidates of
known Mora/ and political worth and competency.
2d. That the puffs contained in the Crawford
Democrat, asserting that the nomination of J.
I'. Brewley, as a candidate for Auditor General,
would be gratifying to the Democracy of this
county, are uncalled for and untrne.
3d. That the delegates to the Williamsport
Convention be instructed to vote for Gen. J. B.

Congress and the Tariff.
A revision of the Tariff of 1810, says the N.
Y. Express, is out of the question in the pres
ent unhappy posture of affairs at Washington,
notwithstanding the fact that hundreds of me
morials are before Congress, earnestly praying
for a modification of the law as it now stands on
the statute book, from manufacturers groaning
under its heavy burdens. And he must be an
ignorant man, or one that is wilfully blind, who
crnnot see and admit these oppressions. It is
not Pennsylvania or the iron interests atone that
appeal for relief, but kasaachusetts, Noir
Hemp Shire, Connecticut and other States are
daily sending up remonstrances against the law
as it is. But their prayers and remdastrances
are all in vain. The Ways and Means commit•
tee have especially refused to act Upon the suh
ject. It has taken them seven months to get
the Appropriation Bills into the House, and
they seem to think they have done wonders in
bringing them forward at the very close of the
As we have often before remarked, this is a
government for negroes, and negro. only. The
wants or remonstrances of iehtre men are not to
be listened to, so long as it is in order to talk
about slavery. This Congress legislates for
Africa, not for the United States. Why not ad

or better yet, to the great Desert of Sahara, to
look after the "equilibriums," the "Wilinots,"
and the "peculiar institutions" there, instead of
sitting at Washington, wasting month after
month doing nothing, or worse than nothing !
DROWNED.-We learn from the Lewistown
Gazette, that Wtn. Henry Langsdorf, aged about
ten years, was drowned in the canal below that
place on Tuesday evening last. He was the
son of Henry Langsdorf, of Lewistown. It is
supposed that he accidentally fell in, and the
water being deep, he was unable to get out.
Awrivr..—A diabolical attempt to fire a rail
road bridge across the canal, this side of the
great Susquehanna bridge, was made one night
last week. Had it succeeded, and information
not been given to the morning train down, fright

who would be guilty of such a crime.—llarris

True Words for' True Whigs.
The following remarks are taken from the
Louisville Chronicle. They are sensible words
—words of truth and soberness—and although
originally intended for the Locofoco press, a
little alteration would make them equally ap.
plicable to the Whigs :
flow To SUSTAIN Wino PA meas.—The lead
ing and in Whigs of each county and
township should take the time and trouble to go
around amongst the people and urge and impress
upon them the importance of taking their county
Eepaper. If they do not succeed upon one trial in
getting up a list, they should try again and a
gain, until they do succeed. This is the way to
do it, and not put it upon the poor and uninflu
nbal. The leaders slionftl do it: It is their
uty to do it. When the rewards and honors of
party turn up, they are the men to get them,
and they should be willing to share the lalors
as well as the honors of success. If this were
done honestly and faithfully, the Whig papers
would all. nourish, and principles wotild grow in
proportion to the extension of (he circulation of

At the last term of oiir court a suit between
Huntingdon county and Blair county was tried.
The suit was instituted by Huntingdon county
to recover from Blair county the contract price
paid by the former :'or the erection of two Brid
ges within the limits of the latter. The facts
were as follows In October 1845, Huntingdon
county contracted for the building of these brid
ges, to be fmished in October 1846. ()lithe 24th
of February 1816, the county of Blair was erect
ed out of parts of Huntingdon and Bedford, and
by the law creating the county, it was provided
“That an unfinished proceedings respecting
floods and Bridges lying entirely within said
county of Blair, shall be certified by the clerk
of the Court of Quarter Sessions where the soiree
