Dr. 0. A. Shade, Daniel Teague; Esq., John R.
Logan, John Myedy, H. Crotsley, James Travis,
M. F. Campbell, Hays Hamilton,
James Gillian,
John Meitner, Wm. Dean, Esq.., James Maguire,
and Samuel Con.
The Committee, after a short absence, made the
following report, which was unanimously adopted:
WIIEHEAA, it is the privilege of freemen to meet
together on all proper oceasions, for the purpose
of interchanging views and sentiments on subjects
affecting the public interests, and to give expres
sions of opinion on measures of National and State
policy, and of the men prominently acting in the
passage of those measures: And Whereas, the
Delegates chosen by the Whigs of Huntingdon
county to represent the party in the nominating
Convention this day held, together with numerous
other Whigs of the said county, have assembled in
county meeting for the purpose aforesaid:
Therefore, Resolved, That we, in common with
the Whigs of the Union, deplore the death of our
lamented late President, Gen. ZACHARY TAY
LOR, mid bow in lwinble submission to the will
of en all-wise but in ratable Providence.
Resolved, That the honesty of intention and
firmness of purpose, as well as the wisdom and
moderation which characterized the actions of the
late President, all gave promise of an administra
tion as glorious as his military achievements on ,!
the plains of Mexico. His fitme will be its due-
Isle as the language of his country, and his char
acter will be a model for the imitation of good men
in all ages to come.
Resolved, That we have full confidence in the
honesty and capacity of President FILLMOIIE,
and congratulate the country upon having such a
man to manage her destinies, at this crisis. In his
past sets we have a sure guaranty and index to Isis
future conduct. The eventful life of our Republi
can President is full of teaching to the rising gen ,
oration,and a clear illustration of the fact that in
in a Rpublic, virtue and intelligence alone are
safe passports to honor and distinction.
Resolved, That in the selection of his Cabinet,
President FILLMORE has fulfilled the expectations
of his constituents. His constitutional advisers
are men of Hied wisdom and patriotism, and deep
ly imbued with Whig principles. To their coun
sel the honor and welfitre of the country may be
committed with entire safety.
Resolved, That while we - deprecate the shame
ful waste of time by Congress in useless debate,
we are thankful that the country has been saved
from greater evils, in the defeat of the so-called
Compromise Bill.
Resolved, That this Government has strength
enough to defend itself against domestic broils, as
well us against foreign invasion, and that a yield
ing to the unreasonable demands, or intimidation
on account of the supercilious threats of Texas,
would bring dishonor upon the Nation.
Resolved, That it is the duty of Congress, with
out further delay, to admit California into the
Union as a State, independent of all other mess
Resolved, That it is unwise and unfair to mingle
the agitating question of Slavery with all other
measures which have no affinity with it. The
Genius of Liberty will not permit the Demon of!
Bondage to keep even step with it in its onward
march, nor mingle the rejoicings of Freedom with
the groans of Slavery.
Resolved, That we are in favor of PROTEC
the wants of the country call loudly for the modi
fications of the present tariff; which have been re
commended by our late President, Gen. TAvton.
Resolved, That the Tariff of 1842 was fraudu
lently repealed by our opponents, at the solicita
tion ofJtunes K. Polk and Sir Robert J. Walker,
and the Tariff of 1846 (the one so well liked by
the British Ambassador and so popular in Eng
land) substituted in its stead, against the wishes
and in defiance of the remonstrances of the people.
Resolved, That it is the duty of Congress to es
tablish, on a sure basis, a Tariff that will secure
AMERICAN LABOR from foreign competition,
justly reward the industry of the Farmer, the Me
chanic and the Manutheturer, and secure is liveli
hood to the industrious toiling multitude throughout
the country.
Resolved, That we have entire confidence in his
Excellency Governor JOHNSTON, and that his
administration is titst elevating the good old Coin
monewith to the rank from which It had been de
graded by a long continuance of misrule.
Resolved, That the interests of the Tax Payers
of the Commonwealth cry mightily fisr a change in
the Canal Board, it being apparent that "Italians
are about," for "moccasin tracks" are ns plainly
to he seen along our public works now, as they
were in the pahuiest days of the old Chief of the
Resolved, That the course of the Loeofoco can
didate tar Canal Commissioner, iu the last Legis
lature, is proof that no remedy of the evil could
result front his election. A man who voted to in
crease the pay of the Canal 'Commissioners, with
a view of becoming a candidate fur the office; and
who voted to raise his own pay from $1,50 to $3
per day, as a member of the Legislature, would he
an unsafe hand to entrust with the taxes wrung
from a tax-ridden community.
Resolved, That J. Porter Brawley, the candidate
for Surveyor General, is obnoxious to the charges
brought against his compeer, Mr. Morrison, and
that he is so notoriously unworthy of the confi
dence of the people, that many of his own parti
sans, in Isis own county, have boldly proclaimed
their opposition to him.
Resolved, Thut in JOSHUA DUNGAN, HEN
RY W. SNYDER, (a scion from the old stock,)
and JOS. HENDERSON, the Whig candidates
for the offices of Canal Commissioner, -Auditor
Genial and Surveyor General, we recognize men
eminently qualificsl for the discharge of the duties
of the offices for which they have been nominated,
and we feel assured that they will snake %Wils',
efficient and obliging public officers.
Resolved, That the course of our able Repre
sentative in Congress, Hun. SAMUEL CALVIN,
meets with our entire approbation, and the thanks
of the District aro due to him for his labors.
Resolved, That we fully approve of the COUN
TY TICKET this day tbrmed, and that w•e pledge
ourselves to use all fair and honorable means to
secure tht election of the WhOLE TICKET.
Addresses were delivered by A. W. BENEDICT
and A. K. COENTN, Esters., which were listened
to with attention and marked approval by the
meeting. _
On ;lotion, the following resolution was unan
imously adopted:
Wmtaeas, no time was fixed by the Conven
tion of this county, the last held in the Senatorial
District, for the Aenatoriul Conference:
Then;fore Resolved, That the time for the meet
ing of the next Senatorial Conference be the lust
Tuesday in August, and the place Hollidaysburg.
On motion of Capt. J. W. WATSON, it was
Resolved, That the present County Committee
be continued until the next County Meeting.
On motion, the proceedings were ordered to he
signed by the officers, and published in the "Hun
tingdon Journal." [Adjourned.
The Southern Protest,
The following is the protest against the passage
of the bill for the admission of California into the
Union, presented to the Senate, by Messrs. Mason,
Hunter, Biumwell, Butler, Morton, Yulee,• Soule,
Davis, of Miss., and Atchison.
We the midersigned Senators, deeply impressed
with the importance of the occasion, and with a
solemn sense of the responsibility under which we
are acting, respectMlly submit the following pro
test against the bill admitting California as a State
into this Union, and request that it may be entered
upon the Journal of the Senate. We feel that it
is not enough to have resisted in debate along a
bill so fraught with mischief to the Union and the
States which we represent, with all the resources
of argument which we possessed, but that it is
also due to-ourseives the people whose interests have
been entrusted to our care, and to posterity, which
even in its most distant generations may feel its
consequences, to leave, in whatever form may he
most solemn and enduring, a memorial of the oppo
sitionl which we have made to this measure, and of
the reasons by which we have been governed.—
Upon the pages of a journal which the Constitu
tion requires to be kept so long as the Senate may
have an existence, we desire to 'dace the reasons,
upon which we are willing to be judged by gener
ations living and yet to come, fur our opposition to
a bill whose consequences may be so durable and
portentous as to make it an object of deep interest
to all who nifty come after us.
We have dissented from this bill because it gives
the sanction of law, and thus imparts validity to
the unauthorized action of a portion of the inhabi
tants of California, by which au odious discrimi
nation is made against the property of the fifteen
slaveholding States of the Union, who are thus de
prived of that position of equality which the Con
stitution so manifestly designs, and which consti
tutes the only sure and stable foundation on which
this Union can repose.
Because the right of the slaveholding States to a
common and equal enjoyment of the territory of the
Union has been defeated by a system of IlleaStlres,
which, without the authority of precedent, of law,
or of the constitution, were manifestly contrived for
that purpose, and which Congress must sanction
and adopt should this bill become a law. In sanc
tioning this system of measures, this Government
will admit, that the inhabitants of its territories,
whether permanent or transient, whether lawfully
or unlawfully occupying the same, may form a
State without the previous authority of law, with
out even the partial security of a territorial organ
ization formed by Congess, without any legal cen
sus or other efficient evidence of their possessing
the number of citizens necessary to authorise the
representation which they may claim, and without
any of those saffiguards about the ballot box which
can only be provided by law and which are neces
sary to ascertain the true sense of the people.
It will admit, too, that Congress having refused
to provide a government, except upon the condition
of excluding slavery by law, the Executive branch
of this Government may, at its own discretion,
invite such inhabitants to meet in convention, un
der such rules as it or its agents may prescribe,
and to form a constitution affecting not only their
own rights but those also of fifteen States of the
Confederacy, by including territory with the pur
pose of excluding those States from its enjoyment,
and without regard to the natural fitness of boun
dary or any of the considerations which should
promptly determine the limits of a State. It will
also admit that the convention, thus called into ex
istence by the Executive, may be paid by him out
of the funds of the United States without the sanc
tion of Congress in violation not only of the plain
provisions of the Constitution, but of those princi
ples of obvious propriety which would forbid ally
act calculated to make that convention dependent
upon it; and last, but not least iu the series of
measures which this Govermuent most adopt and
sanction in passing this bill, is the release of the
antilority of the United States by the Executive
alone to a government thus formed, and not pre- •
seating even sufficient evidence of its having the
assent of a majority of the people for whom it was
designed. With a view of all these considerations
the undersigned are constrained to believe that this
Government could never be brought to admit a
State presenting itself under such circumstances,
if it were not for the purpose of excluding the peo
ple of the slaveholtling States from all opportunity
of settling with their property in that Territory.
Because to vote for a bill passed under such cir
cumstances would be to agree to a principle which
may exclude forever hereafter, us it does now, the
States which we represent from all enjoyment of
the common territory of the Union; a principle
which destroys the equal rights of their constitu
ents, the equality of their States in the confi:dera
e.Y, the equal dignity of those whom they repre
sent its men and as citizens in the eye of the law,
and their equal title to the protection of the Go
vernment and the Constitution.
Because all the propositions have been rejected
which have been made to obtain either a recogni
tion of the right of_Qte slaveholding States to a
common enjoymentgE all the territory of the Uni
ted States or to a fair division of that territory be
tween the slaveholding and non-slaveholding States
of the Union; every effort having failed which has
been made to obtain a fitir division of the territory
proposed to be brought in as the State of Califor
But lastly, we dissent from this bill, and so
lemnly protest against its passage, because, in
sanctioning measures so contrary to former prece
dent, to obvions policy, to the spirit and intent of
the Constitution of the United States, for the pur
pose of excluding the slaveholding States from the
territory thus to be erected into a State, this go
vernment in effect declares that the exclusion of
slavery front the territory of the United States is
au object so high and important as to justify a dis
regard, not only of all the principles of sound po
licy, but also of the Constitution itself. Against
this conclusion we must now and forever protest,
as it is destructive of the utility and liberties of
those whose rights have been committed to our
care—fatal to the peace and equality of the States
which we represent—mid must lead, if persisted
in, to the dissolution of that Confederacy in which
the slaveholding States have never sought more
than equality, and in which they will not be con
tent to remain with less.

Read the following certificate:
HUNTINGDON, March 11, 1850.
For the benefit of sufferers like me and oth
ers, I do freely declare the following facts :—I
have suffered more or less for twenty years with
the most desperate Rheumatism, and also for 18
years at times with most desperate pain in the
stomach, which at times seemed to expand as if,
it would burst; also for many years I was ter
ribly troubled with cramps in my legs—indeed
I can't describe all my sufferings Inc so long a
time. I could do no business for the last ten
years, nor had I a single good night's sleep for
the last five years. I never could find any relief
worth mentioning, until last November, when I
met with the Extract of American Oil, and to
my no little surprise I got relieved of all in a
short time and to this day. I respectfully in
vite all who choose to call and see me upon the
matter; such I can tell much more. I can say
it has done wonders on others around me ircva
rions complaints. If ever an article was put
out honestly, this is one. I know it sells rap
idly here. No family in the land will be with
out it when they once know its use.
Ilrsriscuos, March 11, 1850.
I do hereby certify to the following facts:—
That I have suffered for live years past with
pain in my back, spine and kidnies, and never
received any relief but by bleeding, for a few
days only. Last Novembei I got a bottle of
the Extract of American Oil, I used it inward
ly, and to my surprise it removed the complaint
in a short time. From what I have seen and
heard of its wondrous effects upon others in des
perate cases, I can freely recommend ir, and be
lieve it to be worth all the humbugs in the land,
and do believe it will do all for what it is so
highly recommended. C. Coors.
LEWISTOWN, March 1850,
I never before gave a certificate, but this I
give with a clear conscience for the benefit of
sufferers like myself. I suffered with the Ery.
sipelas or St. Antony's Fire, mixed with Tet
ter, so pronounced by my doctor, for 12 years.
The suffering I endured is beyond description.
At times all my hair came off my head. During
this time I had no relief for more than a few
days at a time. Last October 1 got a bottle of
the Extract of American Oil, used it inwardly
and outwardly, and to my great astonishment
and my neighbors, I got clear of it in a short
time, and to this time I have noticed its won
drous effects on other desperate complaints. I
do assure my friends and the public that it is
indeed a wonderful thing for many complaints.
I invite all whochoose to visit me inLewistown.
