declared duly nominated.
On motion of Mr. Ililemon, the following reso
lutions were then unnimously adopted:
Resolved, That we feel deeply the sudden de
mise of our late excellent and worthy Chief Ma
gistrate, Gen. ZACHARY TAYLOR. His ad-
Ministration was in character with his whole life,
and while the people reposed confidence in his
firmness and ability, they were equally certain
that the Constitution would not he violated, or his
country brought into disrepute by any act of his.
Resolved, That in MILLARD ALLMORE,
the Whig party, and the whole country, can rest
with u finn reliance upon his ability, sound patri
otism, and Republican principles, for a correct and
impartial administration of the government.
Resolved, That Gov. JOHNSTON'S adminis
tration meets with our cordial and hearty approval
and that he is eminently deserving of the confi
dence and support of the people for his purely
honest course in regard to placing Pennsylvania
where she ought to be in the estimation of the
Resolved, That we still adhere to the great prin
ciple of PROTECTION TO HOME INDUS
TRY, and deprecate the ruinous effects now pre
vailing throughout the country, in consequence of
the present British Tariff law of 1846.
Resolved, That we recommend the candidate
now nominated for Senator, to the undivided sup
port of the Whigs of the District, and that we
pledge ourselves to use all fair and honorable
means to ensure his election.
Resolved, That the proceedings of this meeting
be published in the Whig papers of this Senatorial
[From the Hollidaysburg Register.]
About 2 o'clock on Tuesday morning last, the
large Brewery of Mr Diser, in this place, was dis
covered to be on lire, and the alarm given, but be
fore any thing could be done the dovoring element
had gained such headway that it was impossible to
subdue it until it had completely consumed the
Brewery and its contents, together the large doub
le brick dwelling of Mr. Diser attached, and the
dwelling of Mrs. Hare adjoining, besides
considerably injuring another frame building.
We have nut heard an estimate of the loss, but
it is heavy. We are pleased to add, however, that
both Mr. Heiser and Mrs. Hare are insured.
Our Firemen were promptly on the spot with
their apparatus, and did good service—the Alle
gheny Engine especially performing to admiration
& doing credit to the company having her in charge.
At one time it was thought the extensive Store
of Messrs. Lloyd & Uratl must ho consumed, and
the contents were removed. The building how
ever was saved.
From the Lewistowu Democrat.
We are pained to have to chronicle a fearful
tragedy, enacted in our borough on Sabbath eve
ning last, resulting in the death of a man named
George Richwine, by a blow from a brick thrown
by another named William Elliott. A dispute had
arisen between them, as we understand, about some
pigs, which led to high words, and terminated in
Elliot throwing first a stone, which missed Rich
wine, only knocking otf his hat, and then throw
ing a second time with a brick bat, which being
better aimed, struck him on the side aids bead
just above the car and immediately tidied him.—
Dr. Vativalsah was called, and upon examination,
was of opinion that the wound would prove fatal,
as it unthrtunately did, in about four and a half
hours afterwards. Elliot escaped, but has since
been arrested at his brother's in Union county, and
is now lodged in our jail. This scene occurred at
the old packet landing, its front of Richwine's resi
dence, where he also kept amen grocery told grog
gory, between six and seven o'clock, and he died
about ten. He was nut known to be sensible atter
he received the fatal blow. After his death a post
mortem examination was held by several physi
cians, who reported that his skull was factored on
the side opposite where he was struck, and that
his death was evidently caused by the blow he re
ceived. Coroner Davis was promptly on the spot
mid summoning a jury held en inquest on the body
who returned a verdict in =oakum with these theta

of Crow Wing river. A delegation of the chief
men of the tribe reached Lancaster, %Vis., July
10th, en route to the new country, for the purpose
of locating their residences, selecting farms, etc.—
The nation numbers about 2,500, and has resided

neither of which does he use saddle or bridle on
his superb steeds, though they are both as wild
and apparently untameable as when first lassoed
by him on the Pampers of South America.—
Their leaps are truly terrific, and it is impossi

cholic, burns and scalds, bowel complaints,
quincy. ramp and sore throat, inilamation, &c.
Read the following certificate:
HUNTINGDON, March 11, 1850.
For the benefit of sufferers like me and oth
ers, I (la freely declare the following facts
Wave 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 for 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 in va
rious 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.
HI:NTINGDON, March 11, 1850.
I do hereby certify to the following facts:—
That I have suffered for five years past with
pain in my back, spine and kidnies, and never
received ally 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. CoaTs.
Lv.wisrowN, 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.
sipelus 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 canny 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 who choose to visit me in Lewistown.

Widow NaNov VINES.
