MR. Crams :—Permit me, through your pa
per' to correct the editor of the "Huntingdon
Globe," who in the last two numbers of his pa
per, has been making use of my name in con
nection with the nomination for Senator and
Congressman, in this district. Ido not attrib
ute any improper motive to Mr. Lewis ; I sup
pose it is merely a liberty of the press. He has,
however, in professing to correct one error,
fallen into a greater, and both together would
ihm to authorize me, in justice to myself, to
In reply to the last intimation, in the Globe
of this week, that my name be, perhaps,
recommended by the Whigs of this county, for
a nomination in the Congressional district," I
have to say that I do not desire or expect a re
commendation from the County Convention for
the Congressional nomination in this district.-

persuaded Mr. Calvin can and will have an in
creased majority over his last election,

two hundred votes, if the right kind of %ticket

In reply to what is said in the Globe in rela

tingdon county, that without any solicitation
in the part of my friends, but being moved and

ind while 1 should be much gratified to have

vill, three impartial, discreet, good Whigs, as
lenatorial Conferees, without instructions, and
rvithout reference to any person or object, ex

Conferees so appointed, do me the honor to pre

Fur the Huntingdon Journal,
At a special meeting for prayer, of the Pres
byterian Congregation, convened at the Presby
terian church, in the Borough of Huntingdon,
on Friday evening the 2d Aug. 1850, after the
Throne of Grace had been addressed by several
members of the congregation, and the other
usual religious exercises had been attended to,
the following proceedings took place in refer
ence to the departure for a foreign missionary
held, of the Rev. hiss H. OItBISON, a youth
ful Missionary but recently Ordained by the
The Hon. JOHN KER having been called to
the Chair, and Joux REED, ESq., appointed Sec
A Committee. consisting of JOHN G. Muss,
Esq., the Hon. JAMES GWIN and THEODORE H.
CREMER, Esq., was thereupon appointed to re
port to the meeting resolutions expressive of
the feelings of those present, inspired by their
recent separation from the valued young friend
who has just left the bosom of the congregation,
to enter upon the discharge of the responsible
duties assigned him by his Divine Master, ind
the field of foreign missions.
The committee having withdrawn for a short
time, returned and reported the following pre.
amble and resolutions, which, after considera
tion, were unanimously adopted
Wuutiens, In the Providence of God we have
been called upon to witness the departure from
the home of his childhood, of our much loved
friend and brother in christian fellowship, the
Rev. JAMES H. ORBISON, to encounter, it may
be, perils by sea and perils by land, to carry the
glad tidings of salvation to the idolatrous Hin
doo, we express no more than our own feelings
when we say, that we have witnessed that de
parture with mingled emotions of love, admira
tion and regret :—Lone, inspired by the love lee
has displayed for the cause of the Redeemer'of
mankind, in foregoing all the worldly honors
which his talents would have enabled him to
reap in his native lard, with but little sacrifice
of personal comfort, and like the father of the
faithful, going to a land he knows nut or, to pro
claim the story of redeeming love to a race of
men who are perishing for lack of the knowledge
of the way of life i:--Adeireation, of the martyr
spirit which marks the sundering of all the en
dearing ties which cluster around the. home of
his nativity, in obedience to the call of Duty,
and in faith and reliance upon the promise of his
God casting his bread upon the waters, with the
ululation's hope of finding "it after many days:"
—and Regret, that whilst we have to congratu
late the worshipers of idols upon the value to
them of the talents, christian benevolence and
devoted zeal of war youthful townsman, we have
to suffer the loss of the constant influence for
good which his bright example was calculated
to exert upon the rising generation amongst us,
hail the leadings of Providence permitted him to
labor at home.
Therefore,. Resolved, That the sympathies of
the congregation will attend him in his self
sacrificing labors to spread the light of the ev
erlasting gospel over the dark corners of the
earth, wheresoever the Providence of God may
Iced him, and we invoke the richest blessings
of Heaven upon him in all his interests.
Resolved, That we deeply sympathize with
his numerous relatives and friends, in the sacri
fice they have had to make in submitting to that
dispensation which required him to give up fath
er and mother, sisters and brothers, and all the
endearing relations which bound him to his na
tive land, in obeying the command of his Heav
enly Father. But they have the consolation of
knowing that he is in the line of his duty, and
in the hands of that God who has promised to
bless them "that keep his testimonies, and that
seek him with the whole heart.

Obsequies of Oen. Taylor iu Phila.
The obsequies in respect to the memory of
the late President of the United States in Phila
delphia, took place on Tuesday. In the Bulle
tin of that afternoon we have a full account of
the ceremonies, which were grand and imposiug
and from all accounts conducted with a solem
nity and propriety becoming the occasion. The
funeral car is described as a magnificent affair.
It was drawn by eight gray horses, covered
with black cloth, adorned with silver lace.—
Tl.e f.ineral sermon was delivered by Rev. Dr.
Stevens. Of the length of the procession, and
the general appearance of the city along the
route, the Bulletin says—
'rho cortege was about twenty squares
—occupying when in extended line,
about one third of the route which was
upwards of sixty squares, or at least five
miles in length.
The cortege began to move at 11 o'-
clock, A. M., and did not reach the Christ
Church until after 3 o'clock P. M.— us
taking upwards of foUr hours to go ver
the route. The column was about an
hour and a halt passing a given point.
The whole number in the procession,
when it started, was 'about 10,000. This
number however had dwindled down to
less than one half before the route hail
been gone over—so intense and oppres
sive was the heat.
Had it not been for the extreme hot
weather, there would, no doubt, have
been at least 20,000 in the procession.
Throughout the whole length of the
route there were signs of mourning, and
a number of houses were clothed in the
sombre weeds of the Nation's woe.—
Some of the displays were costly and
elegant, and showed that fair hands had
been busy in the course of the previous
day and night.
From all the hotels and other public
places, and the fire engines and.hose
houses, craped flags were suspended
across the street.
The flags of all public places, and
the colors of the shipping in port, were
lowered to half mast.
The omnibusses running from the Ex
change to all the various points of the
city and suburbs, were drapped in black.
All the Government and State buil
dings were closed, the windows of many
private dwellings bowed and put in
mourning, and business generally sus
pended. In Market street, numerous
stores were appropriately decorated with
The Harrisburg Telegraph of Wednesday last
says :—“The thunderstorm of Sunday last, was
almost unprecedented for its violenze and the
discharge of electric fluid. Five barns were
struck in Cumberland county, and consumed
with all their contents. The dwelling house of
Mr. Cleaver, residing on the old road west of
Carlisle, was struck with lightning, and his son,
a young man 18 years of age, sitting on the'
porch, was instantly killed. The names of
three of the Farmers whoie barns were des.
troyed, are Mat tin, Clark, and Westhafer.—
The others we have not learned."

SICKLY AND UNHAPPY WIVES.
Extract of a Letter from a Gentleman in Dayton, a
"DAYTON, May 1, 1847.
4" Dn. A. M. MAURICE. —My Dear air: ' The
Married Woman's Private Medical Companion, for
which I enclosed one dollar to your address, came
safely to hand. I would not have troubled you with
these few lines, but that I am impelled by a sense
of gratitude, fur myself and wife, to give ulteranco
to our sincere and heartfelt emotions.
4 . My wife has been perceptibly sinking for some
three years or more, in come...mem:a of her great en
guish and suffering some months before and during
confinement; every successive ono more and more
debilitated and prostrated her, putting her life iu
minent danger, and which was, en the last occasion,
despaired of. I supposed that this etate of things wan
inevitable, and resigned myself to meet the worst.
At this time (now about two months) I heard year
book highly spoken of as containing some mitten
reaching my case. On its receipt and perusal, I can
not express to you the relief it a:forded my distressed
mind and the joy its mtge. imparted to my wifeoft
learning that the great discovery of M. M. Des.
meaux provided a remedy. it opened a prospect to.
me which I little conceived was possible. No pecu
niary consideration can ever repay the obligations I
am under to you for having been the means of im
parting to us the matters contained in' The Married
Woman's Private Medical Companion.' But foe
this, ere another year would have passed over my
head, in all human probability my wife would have
been is her grave, and my children left motherless,"

Competence and Health.

"ME DEAR Sta.: I know you will have the kind
ness to bear with me in encroaching upon your time,
while I acknowledge fin behalf of myself and wife),
the obligations we feel oureelvem under to you in hav
ing made known certain matter., contained in your
moat invaluable 'Married Woman's Private Medical
Companion.' It ha. been worth its weight in gold
to me. If I express myself rather warmly, you will
see that I can not do so too warmly, when I inform
you of the extent to which I have, through it, beets
benefited. I will state my situation when I obtained
your book through the merest curiosity I look opon
u one of the most fortunate events of my life. I
had been married some ten years, and wee fits fettle/
of seven children. I was long straggling unceseingly
to the end that I might gain a moderate competency,
but the results of my utmost exertions at the end left
me about where I was at the beginning of each year;
and that only, with the most stinted economy, suffi
cing with barely the necessaries of life. Finally, this
constant effort was beginning to have its effect upon
my health I felt lees capable to endure its continu
ance, while I felt the necessity of perseverance.
" This constant, unceasing struggle on my part was
imperative, in consequence of the prostrated condi
tion of my wife (with occasional intermiuion) for six
years, mach of the time confined to her bed, and of
course incapable of taking the charge and manage
ment of household affairs. Her condition arose front
causes of which I was iporent. Ohl what would
I have given had I the MX years to live over again!
What would my wife have given to have been !spared
the long days and still longer nights Prostrate on a
bed of alckneas I— all of which would have been
avoided, had 1 then seen a copy of THE MnaitiEn.

To those yet unmarried, but contemplatinit mar
riage, or perhaps hesitating as to the propriety of
incurring the responsibilities attendant upon it, thy
importance of being possessed of the revelations cots
tallied in these pages. so intimately involving their
future happiness, can not be appreciated.
It is, of course, impracticable to convey more hilly
the various subjects treated of, as they are of a na
ture strictly intended for the mar rimi, or those con
templating marriage; neither is inocenary, since
it is every one's duty to become possessed of knowl
edge whereby the sufferings to which a wife, a moth.
