Governor Johnston on the Stump.
The Harrisburg Union, with a want of courtesy
pectilid tb Locotimoistn, calls Gov. JOHNSTON a
political mountebank," because in pursuance of
the invitations of his fellow-citizens he has thought
proper to visit various portions of the State, to
discuss the principles and measures of the two
great parties. The Union announces its "firm be
lief" that the Governor has his eye upon the Uni
ted States Senate, and is now scheming" to se
cure a majority of Whigs in the next Legislature
tkvorable to his election. If we recollect aright
this sante sort of "scheming" was practised some
sears ago by a certain Francis R. Shank, who vis
ited Reading on an electioneering tour, Marched
through mud and rain, at the head of a Loenfoco
procession in otff streets, mid wound up by touting
a speech ffotn the rostrum of the Court House,
to seeure his election. The same kind of "sche
ming" was adopted at the same time, by a very
disinterested patriot well known to the democracy
us the defeated candidate for Governor in 1898 ;--
and if we are not mistaken a certain JAMES Bit.
(lIANAN, visited Reading no later than two or three
days ago, doubtless with a similar view of "sche
ming" to effect his own political aggrandizement.
The work in which Gov. Johnston is now en
gaged—to meet his fellow-citizens and urge upon
them the importance of attending the polls, with
a view of returning a majority of Whig representa
tives to our State and National Councils, who will
stand up on all occasions for the much neglected
interests of Pennsylvania, is one which entitles him
to the thanks of the people of our State generally,
and the Whig party especially. We are glad to
know that the Governor's etibrts to advance the
Whig cause are attended with eminent success,
and approved universally by his Whig friends.—
lie addressed his fellow-citizens of Union comity
last week ; attended and spoke at a Whig meeting
is Iluntingdon lust Tuesday evening, and will be
present to address anotime at Lebanon to-day.—
In a word, he is doing good service in the good
cause and his efforts are properly appreciated in
the right quarter.
As to the charge that the Governor is desirous
Of a seat in the United States Senate, we have on
ly to say that if such be his aspiration, it is an hon
orable one. It would be hard for the Locofocos to
find a num in the ranks of their party more descry-I
ing, or who would as United States Senator, mote
ably and fitithfully represent the great interest of
the •State. In the responsible position in which
the Governor has been placed he has more than
met the public expectation. We need no better
evidence titan is presented in his past course to en
sure us that in whatever new field he is placed he
would discharge his duty with credit to himself
and honor to his constituents.
From the Juniata Sentinel,
The Vol u nteers, &e:.
CIIARLES E. KINKEAD is announced its an in
dependent candidate for Assembly in Huntingdon
and Blair. lle professes to be a Whig, and is at
his second effort to disorganise the Whig party,
MO we hope indeed that he will get such a settler
this time as will make him feel his place pretty
sensibly. Intimations have been thrown out in
several quarters that the volunteer candidates in
Huntingdon and Blair are to support Mr. Parker's
election in return for the Locofoco votes; and by
a card in the last Huntingdon Joarnai, signed Eliel
Smith, it seems that a fund of too hundred dollars
is on hand for the purpose of aiding to cement the
coalition. Go ahead, Gentlemen. We don't know,
neither do we care, where the money came front,
or how much it may he, there are enough of
straight-forward, unswerving, patriotic Whigs in
the district to save it from Locofoco thraldom.—
Dr. M'Culloch's election is just as certain as the
rising of the sun on the Bth of October if there is
anything like a full vote ; and we trust that no
Whig will add criminality to suicidal folly by fail
ing to vote when such desperate measures are em
ployed to secure Locofoco supremacy I

lie could be, if he were running in one of the
aristocratic Free Trade districts of the South—but,
running as he is, in the "Iron District" of Penn
sylvania, we think he cannot be.
Again—be can he elected, if the people of the
17th Congressional district have "turned about
and jumped Jim Crow" on the Tariff question,—
but not otherwise. He has undergone no change
(at least none for the better) on this question.—
Have the people turned in favor of Free Trade?
Ton answer, No: Then we answer, becutmot be
elected. Parker is the same man be was when'
the people rejected bins in 1848. He hokfs the
same objectionable principles—advocates the snow
Dr. WCULLOCII, his opponent, is unobjection
able as amen, and holds the same sound and con
reet principles held and advocusted by Mr. Calvin.
All who voted for Mr. Calvin, to he consistent,
must vote for Dr. M'Culloch. If they do this,
how can Parker he elected l_ .
But in the present depressed condition of the
manufacturing interests of the district, will not
many who voter. for Parker before, vote against
hint now ? Ahl there's the rub. The People be
gin to feel the effects of the Tariff of 1846, and to
see the disaster that must overtake them, unless a
Pmtective Policy is substituted ; and feeling and
seeing this, they will vote for no man friendly to
such a state of adtirs—thew will 11Z1 , ,:frAT MR.

ing reports from Carson's Creels—salamis which
exceeds the stories told by the oldest of the old
miners. Lumps of gold, in value emulating to
$19,000, were deposited with Adams & Co., last
evening—the proceeds of two and a half days la
bor by two men. One pieceweighs elewrt pounds
as smooth as glass and unmixed with foreign matter
and the smallest lump weighs two and a half min
e.. _ _ _
In conversation with ono of the fortunate pos
sessors of this treasure, he informed me that the
gold was obtained about halfa mile from Carson's
Creek, and where, hitherto, nobody else had thought
of searching for it. The place appears to have
been formed by a mountain slide. The gold is all
very coarse, and that obtained by our informant
has never been washed. The clay adheres to it
as when it was first picked out of the earth. About
70 persons were at work in these Wiggins, and our
informant says that one of them took out 27 pounds
on Friday last. All in that location are meeting
with remarkable merest.
A WHITE BOY KIDNAPPED BY A NEGIIO.—A
few days since a young man, about 20 years of age
went to the police office of the Third Municipality
and stated that when he was about 12 years old,
he was kidnapped from this city, by a free colored
man named De Lisle, and by him taken to Atta
kapas, where, until a short rime age, he was made
to work among nogroes us a slave. The young
man said that his name was Adolph Archer; that
his parents wero residing. in this city at the time
he was taken away—that he had a 6rother named
Henry, and that the person who kidnapped him
now resides about twelve or thirteen miles from
New Iberia, in this State. He further says, that
during the time he was on the plantation, he was,
in every respect, treated as anegro slave, and sed
ulously shut out from all intercourse with white
persons, until he embraced au opportunity to es
cape. The story of Adolph's wrongs having been
to some extent, made public in the Third Muni
cipality, came to the ears of his brother Henry,
who sought out the long-lost Adolph and welcom
ed hint to the endearments of a home. Henry is
now employed in the office of the Swiss Consul,
and is, as we learn, determined to seek out and
bring to justice the black-hearted kidnapper of his
brotber.—N. 0. Ddlo, 19M.
Maynan in London.--He is Mobbed
and narrowly escapes Death 1
On Wednesday, the lititcherHavnati received a
alight indication'of the regard which the English
people entertain for him. He arrived at London
on Monday, and on Wednesday, having previous
' ly received a letter of introduction from Baron
Bothnialds, in which the Baron styles Harm ns
his particular friend, lie wont to visit the brewery
of Messrs. Barclay, Perkin & Co. Haynau was
accompanied by his aid-do camp and his interpre
ter. According to the regular practice of visitors,
they were requested to sign their names in a book
in the office. After which they crossed the yard
with one of the clerks. On inspecting the visitor's
hook, the clerk discovered that ono of the visitors
was no other than the Marshal Haynau, late com
mander of the Atistriaft forces during the attack
upon the unfortunate Hungarians. It
known all over the brewery in less Chats two tnin
and before the 'General and his companions',
had crossed the yard, nearly all thelaborers and
draymen ran out with brooms and dirt, shouting
out, " Down with the Austrian butcher," and other
epithets of an alarming nature to the Marshal.—
The Marshal finding how matters stood, and being
likely to get a warm reception from the surly
crew, thought discretion the better part of valor,'
and began to beat a retreat; but this was not so
The attack was commenced by dropping a truss
of straw on his head. After which grain and mis
siles of every kind were freely bestowed upon hint.
The men next struck his hat over his eyes, and
hurled him aloud in all directions. His clothing
were torn from off his hark. The Marshal's com
panions were treated with equal violence. The
party finally succeeded in reaching the entrance
gate, but no sooner had they made their exit than
a crowd of coal heaven?, who waited for his high
ness, seized upon him. He was struck and pelted
with every available missile, and even dragged
along by his mustachio, which afforded ample th
ellities from its excessive length. Still battling
with his assailants, he ran in a frantic manner
along the bank side, until he came to the George
public house, where he ran tip stairs and conceal
ed himself in a small closet. The furious mob
rushed in after him, threatening to do for the Aus
trian butcher, but they did not succeed in disco,
cling his retreat. Ultimately the police came to
Ma rescue, and he was removed in a police barge
to the other end of the city. This assault has been
the subject of comment in nearly all the London
and provincial papers, and whilst the minority
agree in condemning the act, still they frankly ad
mit that the presence of so disreputable a charac
ter in England was a provocation great enough to
excuse even a greater outrage.
