Er Mr. GEO. GwIN advertises a new stock of
splendid Fall and Winter Goods. Go and look at
bis goods, and you can't help but purchase. They
are exceedinglybeautiful, and remarkably cheap.
Election of Judges.
The majority in this county against the Amend
ment of the Constitution, relative to the election of
Judges by the people, exceeds NO. From the im
perfect returns received, it is impossible to tell
what has been the fate of the Amendment in the
State. We think, however, that the people have
decided in favor of it.
The Poor House.
The people of this county, at the late election,
decided in favor of the erection of a County Poor
House, by a vote of 1299 to 952. It is the duty
of the Commissioners appointed under the Act of
Assembly, to purchase a suitable site for the loca
tion of the Poor House, on or before the first of
January next; the County Commi.isioncrs to pay
the expenses incurred by them in the discharge of
their duty. It is hoped that the Commissioners
will act promptly, in positing forward this humane
and philanthropic enterprite.
The Result in the State.
Prom the few and imperfect returns received,
it is impossible to snake out anything like a cor
rect statement of the result in the State. Suffice
it to say, that "We have ma the enemy, and we are
theirs I" Owing to the apathetic feeling among
the Whip, or some other cause, we have been
badly beaten throughout the State. The Loco
focos have elected their State Ticket, thirteen out
of the twenty-four:Congressmen, and carried the
Legislature. The returns we have are so imper
fect that they would be of no interest to our read
ers. We will endeavor to give the returns com
plete in our next week's paper.
A Withering Rebuke.
The result of the late election in this county is
a withering rebuke to the political tricksters, who,
for a consideration, "sold out" to a renegade Whig
candidate for Sheriff, and attempted to trade q,9
the whole Democratic party! Every effort was
made, through the columns of the Globe, and by
private letters and circulars, sent out on the eve
of the election, to cut Mr. SPEER, the Democratic
candidate, and rally the Democracy upon John
Whittaker, and thus ratify the "bargain and sale"
entered into between the Globe clique and Whit
taker. Appeal after appeal went forth, urging,
coaxing, entreating the Democracy to go for the
"bargain and sale" candidate—but it was like call
ing "spirits from the vasty deep"—they wouldn't
come ! These political managers found in Mr.
Senna a well-trained tactician who could and did
ont-general the whole of them ! All their schemes
to seduce the Democracy, and concentrate the
party vote upon a renegade from the Whig ranks,
signally failed. The "Independent Democrats"
were not such pliant tools as to bon• to the dicta
tion of the Globe editor, (whose Democracy they
regard as rather "fishy") and like him turn traitor
to their party and their principles. They arc not
slaves to cringe beneath the lash of would-be party
leaders, nor dogs to lick the tbot that kicks them.
Instead of sanctioning and ratifying, by their votes,
the corrupt "bargain and sale" between the Globe
editor and Whittaker, the "Independent Democ
racy" came out in their strength and rebuked and
put down the tricksters who basely sought to trade
away their rotes! We predicted, prior to the elec
tion, that the efforts of these sagacious politicians 1
♦o disorganize the Whigs, and Judas-like, sell thel
Democratic party, would recoil upon themselves—
that the poisoned chalice would return to their
own lips. And the result fully verifies our pre.
digkon. The Whigs manfully stood up for the
wins Ticket, and elected it—the "Independent
Democracy" adhered to their own candidate, Mr.
Speer—the "bargain and sale" candidate, Whit
-I,lter, was overwhelmingly defeated—and the
Globe editor is now denounced by his own party
as a Guerrilla, and paper repudiated as a dis
organizing sheet! Sic tranaii ; ;lorry mundi /
Mt. Lanou Lucampment.
The military Encampment at Mt. Union com
mences to-day. Great preparations have been
made, and a number of companies are expected to
be in attendance. The Huntingdon Guards, Capt.
CAurBELL, will leave to-day, fully equipped for
Camp duty. We hope they may have "a good
time of it." Adj. Gen. Inwix is expected to he
present on Thursday to review the troops.
or During the lute campaign, the Globe had a
teat deal to nay about the "keepers" of the Whig
party. We heard a Democrat remark, the other
day, that it was evident the editor of the Globe had
no "keeper," and that the interests of the Demo
cratic party required that a "keeper" should be
appointed tor him as soon as possible.

NOBLE OLD HUNTINGDON I
A Brilliant Whig Triumph!
" We can't be beat, when we all lull together!"
The gallant Whig Regulars of ever -true old
Huntingdon, achieved a most brilliant triumph on
Tuesday last. They went into the Contest with
true hearts and willing hands, and returned from
the political battle field, covered with laurel wreaths
of VICTORY! As will be seen by the official
returns in another column, the WHOLE WHIG
TICKET is elected, by majorities ranging from
three to OVER SIX HUNDRED ! Nobly, in
deed, did our Whig friends discharge their duty.
The base attempt of a few unprincipled tricksters
to break down the organization of the Whig party,
and defeat the Whig candidates, created a whirl
wind of popular indignation that completely over
whelmed and annihilated the disorganizers !
We never, for a moment, doubted the integrity
of the Whigs of this county. We knew than to
be as true as the needle to the pole. We knew
that no device or trick of the enemy could induce
them to abandon their party and principles, and
unite with a Fet of disappointed place hunters, who,
serpent-like, sought to sting the bosom that nour
ished and warmed them into political existence.—
We knew the Whigs of old Huntingdon too well,
and had too much confidence in them, to believe''
that they would, by their votes, sanction or tolerate
such Judas Iseariotiten in the Whig ranks. And
the result shows that our confidence woo not mis
placed. The WHOLE WE IG TICE ET was tri
umphantly elected—the party organization pre
served unbroken—and the Guerrillas covered with
defeat, confusion and disgrace.
What renders the Victory of Tnesday last doub
ly gratifying, is the fact that it was achieved over
the combined etforts of the Locofocos and Guer
rillas, and in the face of the most determined and
reekless'opposition. Every vile scheme which the
ingenuity of our opponents could invent, was bro't
to bear against ns. WinsaEr flowed freely for
weeks previous to the election! Moser was cir
culated largely throughout the county, and repent
ed attempts made to buy up votes ! "Bribery and
Corruption" was the order of the day And the
slanderous tongues and pens of the enemy were
constantly employed in dctinning Whig candidates
and poisoning the minds of the people. Every
means, fair and foul, was resorted to, in the hope
of disorganizing and defeating the Whig party.—
But all to no purpose. The slanderous tongues of
paid eleetioneerers wagged in vain. The pens of
the empty-hetuled pensioned scribblers of the Loco
Foco press were employed without effect. The
ever-victorious Whigs of old Huntingdon were as
firm and immoveable as her everlasting hills.—
They nobly stood up to the work—discharged their
duty like Tuna snot—and achieved a VICTORY
that will wann the heart of every true Whig in
the Commonwealth !
All honor to the Whig Regulars of Old Hunt
ingdon! They, at least, have done their DUTY !
They have nobly maintained their integrity, and
given Gnerrillaisni it, quietus.
Smith and 111 , Curte Elected!
As we predicted, the Guerrilla candidates for the
Legislature have been overwhelmingly defeated.—
The foul spirit of disorganization has been rebu
ked and crushed, and the disorganizers will go
down to their political graves,
"Unwept, =honored and unsung."
Notwithstanding the combined efforts of the Lo
cofocos and Guerrillas, the Whigs of this Legis
lative district have achieved a glorious victory in
the election of their candidates by immense majo
rities. The following are the official rettirns:
Smith. M'Cunc. Kink'd. Itark'n.
linntingdon, 1819 172 G 1276 1176
1785 17.3 . 2 11G9 968
3604 3458 2445
From the above, it will be seen that the Whig
candidates, W3l. B. SMITH and SETH R. APCUNE,
are elected over Kinkead, the highest Guerrilla
candidate, the former by over ELEVEN HUN
DRED MAJORITY, and the latter by nearly
ONE THOUSAND MAJORITY! After such
a result, it is not likely we will be troubled with
any more Guerrillaism in this county and district
for a long time to come !
Outside of Baltimore City, there is no gaits for
the Opposition from the last Governor's election,
but a decided Wino GAIN. Enoch Louis, the
Locofoco candidate for Governor, is elected by
1,700, (against 1,500 tor Thomas last time) hav
ing 2,700 majority in Baltimore city, where his
party has not honestly 1,600. Hostility to "the
Court House clique" among the Whigs, defeated
their worthy candidate for Governor, as we were
assured it must do when he was nominated.
The Whigs save the Senate-12 to D—and so
will have a handsome majority in the Legislature,
as usual. We hope the Convention will make a
thorough Reform, after which the State is good
for a fair Whig majority at State as well as Na
We love independent men, no matter to what
party they belong, who dare and will speak thr
themselves, regardless of the threats and frowns of
self-constituted leaders.—Globe, Sept. 24.
So do we like independent Men: We like the
"Independent Democracy" of this county, for the
manner in which they spoke out on Tuesday last,
in condemnation of the "self-constituted leaders"
who Hotter around the Globe office. In refusing
to follow the lead of the Globe editor, the "Inde
pendent Democracy" are at least entitled to our
respect. "We love independent men."
The Fugitive Slave Law.
The Fugitive Slave law is producing an agita
tion in the public mind in many parts of the coun
try, that looks like anything else but peace and
quiet. It will be so wherever its hideous features
are seen, and the people are not dead to every sen
timent of freedom that inspired our Revolutionary
fathers. The word "repeal" will ring through the
laud, till this badge of despotism is swept from the
e r Hon. CIIESTEIt BuTun, of Wilkesbarre,
member of Congress from the Xlth district of this
State, died at Philadelphia, last week, on his way
home front Washington.
Important to Undertakers.
The spirit of the South Carolina and Georgia
press, since the issue of Governor Town's procla
mation, convening the State Legislature, seems to
have imbibed an infusion of gall. South Carolina,
particularly, is getting to he more belligerent to
wards the North than aver; but as the chivalrous
Mr. Barnwell has given the word that his princi
pality is to follow the lend of Georgia, we need
not be alarmed for her secession until the knights
of Georgia have given the signal. Georgia leads
the van; South Carolina is the rear guard. What
sort of music there is in the camp may be inferred
from the following alarming extract from a very
indignant article, written on the passage of the
Compromise Bills, from the Charleston Evening
" Arc we of the slave States, in view of these
aggressions, to stand with folded arms, and behold
without a word or act, the sacred guards of the
Constitution broken down, amidst the hoastings of
the modern Goths who beset us? For ourselves,
again as we have seen clearly the evil and warned
of it, so we are now prepared to abide the results.
If the South will do what we really believe she
will, submit to the damning wrong and take
patiently the lash, so be it. ‘1 7 17 can live, we pre
sume, where others live, but, thank God live where
we will, and die, where we nay, neither the sin of
concealed traitorism, nor the open shame of hav
ing suit' our country, Ihr party, will ever follow us
with curses. We have but one word more to say
now. Nothing but union can now save the South,
the Union and the Constitution. That union must
be on the Missouri line. IT IS AN ISSUE OP LIFE
AND DEATH. Foe ONE, WE ARE PREPARED TO
MARCIE It TO 36 30 WlTtt OUR corm ON OUR
Baca'. WHO GOES WITH Us?"
This is tolerably "tall talking," as they say
down in New England. It rescinds oneof the lan
guage Shakspeare puts into the mouth of a very
wicked king, who is about to meet his deserts:
" Ring the alarm bell! blow winds; come rack,
At least we'll die with harness to our back."
Charleston, near the Santee, has made an im
provement on Stratford on Avon, and very few im
partial persons, we think, will resist the conclu
sion that "coffins" is better than "harness."—
What a magnificent spectacle it would be, to be
slue, to see a whole army of the chivalry Quattle
burning towards the Missouri line, each man with
his coffin on Isis back 1 The Millerites would cer
tainly think the end of the world had come, at
last ! South Carolina must ben good place forth°
undertaking business, just about this time. The
trade would do well to turn their attention towards
that quarter. Coffins are going up—coming up--
to "36 30." "Who goes with itsl" asks else News.
We do not think Ise will get many volunteers to
embark in so ghostly an expedition. It would be
a phantom chasing a phantom,—a bob-goblin en
terprize, which even theghost of John C. Calhoun
would shake its finger at. However, when the
army is about to move North, we c , mjstre our
Charleston cotempomry to give us a blast from Isis
bugle, that see may know when to get out the sway.
We blush to record the lnuniliatingtitct that the
advocates of Free Trade have triumphed in the
"Iron District." From the following returns,
which, with the exception of Centre, are official,
it will be seen that Parker is elected by a majority
of about 407 votes :
Huntingdon, 508 maj. I Centre, 842 maj.
Blair, 527 " Diifttin, 338 " •
Juniata, 262 "
We have neither the time nor the disposition
now to speculate upon the probable causes which
have contributed to a result so unexpected and
deeply humiliating, in a district where nine-tenths
of the People are the avowed and unwavering
friends of Protection. One thing, however, we
must be permitted to say, and that is, had the
Whigs iu the other counties of the district dis
charged their duty with one half the zeal and fi
delity that the Whigs of Huntingdon county did,
the result would have been different. The pirate
flag of Free Trade would now be trampled in the
dust, instead of waving in triumphs over this Iron
hound district. But, as Jacob Faithful says,
"there's no use crying for spilt milk—what's done
can't be helped—better luck next time."
Although defeated, Jelin M'Cuttoest has the
satisfaction of knowing that the Whigs of his own
county nobly stood by him, and rolled' up a majo
rity fur him of which he has reason to be proud.
Their talking and thinking at hot brought out
Whig volunteer candidates who have been gain
ing. strength so rapidly that the keepers of the
Whig party have become alarmed for its safety.—
(dote (y . Sept. 24.
Yea, the Whigs were awfully alarmed, pa•ticu
larly when the returns of the election began to be
announced. The Globe's strong candidates run a
terrific vote in the county. Africa was beat 607
votes and Maj. Zeigler led Whittaker 756 votes!
Strong candidates, truly ! Wonder if the editor
of the Globe could not be prevailed upon to manage
the next etunpaigml Ila! ha! ha!
Whig Senator Elected.
The majoriiy for Col. M'Muicram, the Whig
candidate for Senator, in Huntingdon and Blair,
is about 800. We have nothing very reliable from
Cambria, but rumor gives M'l)owcll a umjority of
500 in that county, said to be the result of some
trading operation among the Whigs, to secure the
election of a Whig member. Col. M'Murtrie's
majority in the district, therefore, will be about
300, which is sufficient tbr all useful purposes.—
He is a good man and will make an efficient and
reliable representative in the State Senate.
Whig Victory in Baltimore.
We are gratified to learn that Mr. Jerome,
Whig, was on Wednesday last elected Mayor of
Baltimore, by a majority of 769 over his Locofoco
competitor. The Locofoco majority iu the city
at the recent Gubernatorial election, was 2,752,
showing a Whig gain of 3,521!
GT There was u man killed on the railroad, a
short distaned West of this, on Tuesday night lust.
lle was lying upon the truck, and Me passenger
cars passed over him, severing his bead from his
body, and causing instantaneous death.
W'Gov. Ramsey, of Minesota, lately received
from the l'embineso Indians, the complimentary
present of a richly wrongful buckskin coat.

Products of California.
It is estimated that California has sent into the
world dm•ing the past two years, full one hundred
and fifty millions of dollars worth of gold dust
which has been distributed as follows :

Shipped fret to England, via C. Horn, 10,000,000
Shipped to other parts of the world, 15,000,000

The Last Humbug.
According to the Southern Press, "there has beep
great contention for the honor of "Nationality,"
which is now understood," it says, "to mean bel
lowing out lustily against "disunion and nullifica
tion," and the whole vocabulary of hard names
which are used to designate resistance to uncon
stitutional action on the part of Congress;" and it
intimates that Col. Benton "can claim the title to
the honor of originating this among other humbugs.'
In the now code of Southern philosophy, the repub
lic is a humbug—liberty is a humbug—every thing
is a humbug, except slavery, and the South, and
the aforesaid "disunion and nullification."
Another Senatorial fracas occurred a few days
before the adjournment of Congress, in which the

Fremont, and when the latter remonstrated with
the former he received a severe blow. It wa,
thought that a duel would grow out of it; but tile
friends of Foote interposed and induced him to
swallow the offensive words he had used, nod the
difficulty* was reconciled. We forget whether this
is the fourth or fifth fracas Foote got up during the
Session and yet he is held up as a model pacifica
A Cave Full of Negroes.
Col. J. C. Bailey, of Louisiana, while in pursuit

bacon, and a general assortment of groceries.—
Some of them were captured, and delivered to
their owners, and others escaped.

Sunday Morning Riot.
PIIILADELPIIIA, Oct. G.
Between 12 and I o'clock this morning, a tierce
fight occurred between the whites and blacks,
which lasted full an hour. During the riot, mus
kets, pistols, clubs, stones, &c., were used with
frightful freedom. As the police were attempting
to make arrests, volleys of musketry were tired fit
them. About the time, as Wm. Sipple, a young
Man residing in Southwark, was proceeding home,
he was seized in Lombard street, by is party of
colured men, who stabbed him with knives until
he died. A number of the blacks were arrested.
