IR" MISS MARY A. MILLER has just opened a
splendid assortment of Fall and Winter Millinery
Goods and Fancy Articles. She keeps the most
attractive Fancy Store in town; and the extent,
variety, and beauty of her stock cannot fail to at
tract the attention and patronage of our ladies.
Cr J. & W. SAXTON are "astonishing the na
tives" again, with a magnificent display of new
goods. See their advertisement.
NEW GOODS.—Our friends of the "Elephant,"
Messrs. PEIGHTAL & Booos, are here again, with
new goods, and selling as cheap as ever. Adver
tisement next week.
The election is over, and the returns summed
up, and we can now devote all our tune and ener
gies to making the Journal an interesting newspa
per. And this, if litvored with health, we are de
termined to do. Let all, therefore, who want a
good county newspaper, subscribe at once for the
Journal, and their object will be accemplished.—
Every family should have a paper to entertain them
these long evenings; and no paper is so useful and
important as a County Paper. In addition to the
local news of the county, an of importance from
abroad is also furnished. Come on, then, one and
all, and subscribe for the "Joinorm.," and our
word for it, you will consider the money which it
costs well spent, at the end of the year. The
coming Court will be a good time to send in your
names. Let all embrace the opportunity. The
farmers have had a most abundant crop this sea
son, and can well afford to help the printer's crop
Remains of Gen. Taylor.
The mortal remains of the late President Taylor
passed through this place on Friday evening last,
en route for their final resting playa in Kentucky.
They were in charge of Col. Taylor, Maj. Bliss
and others. _ _
tr The last Huntingdon Journal exhibits the
true character of the num who are hired to do the
dirty work for the editor dhring his absence.—
Duty compelled us to be absent for the past two
weeks, on a visit to an aged and only surviving
parent, who resides in the upper end of Northum
berland county. During that dine, the Journul
was conducted by Mr. Wm. P. COULTER, who has
been engaged for some time past in this office.—
No one else contributed a line to the paper, unless
in a communication. And we toothier the Globe
editor hard run, when, unable to cope with Mr.
Coulter, ho meanly whines out thuthe is "hired to
do our dirty work." Nothing appeared in the
Journal during our absence, that we do not ap
prove; and we should like to know when it has
become discreditable in this country to take a sit
uation for wages, in any honorable calling. We
should not become too lofty, neighbor, because we
happen to be in possession of press and types which
we call our own. You know it is not long since
you and us considered ourselves fortunate to be
"hired" at our calling, especially if the wages
were good. It might be so again.
The Blair County Whig compliments the Whigs
of this county, and congratulates us on the result
of the lute election. We return the compliment,
by congratulating the Whigs of Blair on what
they did. They achieved a most important victo
ry for the Whig organisation, by the signal defeat
of the Guerillas, and they deserve thanks for it.—
They did not, however, do what they might have
done for the Whig candidate for Congress. We
do not complain of the Editors or the regular can
didates. We believe they did all they could. We
think we know where the fault lies, but will defer
all remarks until we are fully assured of the truth
of our suspicions.
In connection with this subject, we will remark
that so long as Blair county continues to pre,ent
such gallant working Whigs as Saul R. M'Cus
to be voted for, in connection with Huntingdon
county, they may always rely on getting the full
Whig vote iu this county. Like our own candi
date, Wm. B. Smnin, M'C,me was known here to
be honest, competent, and a Whig that never
missed fire, and hence could not fail to receive the
entire Whig vote.
Our cotemporaries are tilling their papers with
a description of an "excursion" on the Pa. Rail
road, got up to celebrate the opening of this wad
to the Allegheny mountain. It seems all the edi
tors on the Juniata were invited, with the excep
tion of the editor of this paper. Of course we have
not mach to say about the "excursion," but will
make a remark or two about this much puffed
When the enterprise was first talked of, wc said
all we could in its favor, and to the extent of our
humble abilities aided it through our paper up to
the present time. In return, we have been treated
by those who control it, with the most contempti
bie meanness. Theyeven refuse to pay for a copy
of our paper, sent to the Engineer's ofilee at this
place, and ordered by one of their agents. We
ask no compliments or favors at the hands of this
company, but we have a right to our just dues.
We shall have more to say hereafter.
The Election in this County.
:Imam; CLARK, Esq. of the Journal, deserves'
the thanks of every Wliig in the State, who values
the organization of the party and its usages, for
the able and efficient services he rendered in the
late campaign in his own county of Huntingdon.
His paper fought the disorganizers bravely, and
the victory over them is the very highest compli
ment we can pay him. May the like fate always
befall the traitors who desert a party for the sake
of office.—Lebanon Courier.
We do not publish the above because of the
more than deserved compliment paid to ourself,
but for the purpose of showing the Whigs how the
contest in this county was viewed by our Whig
brethren elsewhere. So far as -we are concerned,
we did nothing more than our duty—nothing more
than the Whigs of the county had a right to ex
pect, and even demand at our hands. In all we
did or said during the campaign, our only motive
was the good of the Whig party. The credit of
the result belongs to the gallant Whigs of the
whole county, and especially, without desiring to
he invidious, to such noble townships as Brady,
Jackson, and Cuss, where the whole Whig ticket
WAS most gallantly sustained by the Whig voters.
In Barrce, and the Huntingdon district, notwith
standing the Whigs are in the minority, the whole
ticket was also well sustained. And it is proper
to remark, that in the townships where the Whig
candidate for Sheriff NVIIS cut, there were gallant
Whigs who did all in their power to sustain the
whole ticket, and preserve the organization of the
party. To the Whigs, then, of the whole county,
should our brethren elsewhere return their thanks
for the glorious victory in Huntingdon, of which
every true Whig may justly feel proud.
This famous war charger, nsed by Gen. Taylor
in most of his celebrated battles in Mexico, passed
through here in a canal boat, on Thursday morn
ing last, on his way to the west. The boat re
mained here but a few minutes, and as it was not
generally known that "Old Whitey" was on board,
our citizens had not an opportunity of seeing him.
At Harrisburg, the Telegraph says, lie was visited
by hundreds of people. At Columbia, there was
a flreman's celebration, with music, when he ar
rived, which so elated hint that be almost broke
through the cur. The music appeared to revive
his recollection of the glories lie had attained to
under the same strains. The old fellow is about
15 years old, and has what are called "glass eyes."
The Way it Works,
Last winter, the Locofticos, in violation of the
true representative princip!e, united Beaver, But
ler and Lawrence counties together into one rep
resentative district—giving them three members
of Assembly—something less than they were enti
tled to. Beaver, heretofore, had two members,
and was a Whig county. Now, she gives a Loco
Foco majority, and would have elected two Loco
members, had she been a district by herself; but
Lawrence and Butler helped her out of the scrape
autt saved the Whig legislative ticket. Thus the
Locofocos, by their Gerrymander, lost themselves
two Assemblymen they might have had I
The election of Horn It. Recess, Esq., as Dis
trict Attorney of the county of Philadelphia, is
contested by Wm. B. Reed, Esq., in whose behalf
a petition has been filed in the Court of Quarter
Sessions. The contest is founded upon the grounds
of illegal voting and incorrect returns by the Jud
ges 01 election. In one of the Wards 243 votes
were returned for Mr. Kneass, when in fact no
such votes were cast at all.
The election of George Carpenter as Prothonc,
tory, is also contested by James Vinyard, upon pre,
cisely the same grounds as above.
The next U. S. Senator.
The late election having resulted in favor of our
opponents, they have already commenced discus
sing the merits of their several aspirants to the
Senatorship. The friends of Judge Black are
making a strong and vigorous effort, while the
friends of M'Caudlcss, Woodward, Ingersoll, and
others are no less vigilant. What is to be dune
with Simon Cameron we have not yet been told.
However Simon has his friends, warns and true,
and he will doubtless show fight before the battle
is over. The lines of faction are already drawn
up and an interesting time may be anticipated.
“Getting Their Eyes Open.”
The Democrats who wished to defeat Mr. Zeig
ler, but who could not agree to support the candi
date WE recommended, are already getting their
eyes open to the fact," &c.—Globe.
True, every word of it ! And since "their eyes"
have been "opened" by the result of the election,
they do not hesitate to declare that had it not been
for the treachery of the Globe, and the clique that
surrounds it, the Democrats would have stood a
fair chance to elect their candidate for Sheriff, Mr.
Speer. Every Democrat who "opens" his "eyes"
and looks at the official returns, denounces the
Globe for its course.
A Significant Fact.
Amid all the excitement and agitation the coun
try has witnessed the past year, says the Norristown
Register, no body of men respectable in numbers
or exercising any influence, and no individual hol
ding any office, national, state, or municipal, with
in any of the Free States, has put forth a senti
ment in fitvor of a dissolution of the Union. If
any one has uttered the treasonable sentiment, it
has been some crazy fanatic, who is universally
regarded as an object of pity. All the 'disunion'
has come from the South—front the aggressors
themselves. And, again, we find all the preach
ers of disunion that are named in the papers, are
Locofocos. Not a Whig have we seen mentioned
in that crowd.
Our Whig friends in the new county of Fulton
have done nobly. They have resolved that that
shall be a Whig county, and in the late contest they
fairly divided the honors, electing a Whig Sheriff,
a Whig Prothonotary, and a Whig Congressman.
The Locofoco majority on the State ticket is only
28, which active eflbrt can easily overcome.
eir It will be seen, by the official returns, that
the majority in favor of the Amendment to the
Constitution, reaches nearly MOM.

THE FUGITIVE SLAVE LAW.
Repeal, Not Resistance.
This measure, ns we stated last week, has awa
kened a strong feeling of opposition in the North
' ern Seines. Meetings have been held in many
plaees at which it was denounced with great viru
lence; and determinations have ever been expres
sed to oppose its operation with force. On this
point, we agree with the York Republican, that
there should be but one sentiment; that so long as
it remains a law of the land, it is the duty of citi
zens to exhibit towards it tt ',isms; obedience, at
least, and it is not wise or just to be carried away
by excitement or prejudice into rash and unjusti
fiable opposition to or unsustainable condemnation
of its provisions. Let the act be calmly considered
and if unconstitutional or improper, let the cry of
repeal go forth steadily and untiringly until is is
blotted out of the Statute Book. The excitement
on the subject has not been confined to civil bodies
but has extended into, and affected the action of
religious Synods and Conventions, the law having
been eondmned after exciting debates, in the 0. S.
Presbyterian Synod at Pittsburg, and in an Uni
versalist Convention in Massachusetts.
The opponents of the law• have strenuously con
tended that it was unconstitutional, because Art.
I Sec. 6 of the Constitution of the United States
"The privilege of the writ ofhabeas corpus shall
out be smptiukd unless when in cases of rebellion
or invasion the public safety may require it;"
whereas the act itself after providing for the ap
pointment of Commissioners by the Circuit Courts
of the United States to decide all cases in which
individuals shall claim persons as fugitive slaves,
and give certificates to the owners, goes on to pro
vide as follows :
"And the certificates in this, and the first sec
tion mentioned, shall he conclusive of the right of
the person or persons in. whose favor granted, to
remove such fugitive to the State or Territory
from which he escaped, and Mall prevent molesta
of such person or persons tul any process issued by
any court „judge, magistrate or other persons whom-
This same difficulty presented itself to the mind
of President FILLMORE before ho signed the bill,
and he referred the mutter to Attorney General
CRITTENDEN fur a legal opinion on that point.—
That gentleman whose reputation as a Lawyer and
Statesman is unexcelled, after quoting I.ll,Acn-
STONE to prove that the "sole remedial power and
purpose of the writ of Habeas Corpus is to deliver
the party from all manner of illegal confinment,"
states the effect of the Fugitive Slave Law in the
following paragraph t—
" The whole effect of the law may be thus brief
ly stated. Congress has comtituted a tribunal
with exclusive jurisdiction, to determine summa
rily, and without appeal, who are fugitives from
service or bettor under the second section of the
fourth article of the Constitution and to whom such
service or labor is due. The judgment of every
tribunal of exclusive jurisdiction, where no appeal
lies, is of necessity conclusive upon every other
tribunal, and therefore the judgment of the tribu
nal created by this act is concessive upon all tribu
nals. Wherever this judgment is made to appear
it is conclusive of the right of the owner to retain
in his he front his service and re
movehMNfo-tleo place or State front which
he escaped. If it is shown upon the application
of the fugitive for a writ of habeas corpus, it pre
vents the issuing of the writ—if upon the return,
it dischtuges the writ, and rectors or maintains the
Taking this then as an answer to the constitu
tional objection—and tre shall not venture to con
trovert it—the question still remains, is the law
just and proper in its provisions, and ought it to
continue in force? The personal liberty of an in-'
di vidual, no matter of what color, is one of his clear
est rights; and vet this law submits thelina/ dis
position of that question to the determination of
men, for the most part needy and inexperienced,
who have the audacity in the face of public opin
' ion in the free States to accept appointments as
Commissioners for the purpose of assisting South
' uric Slaveholders in reducing to bondage men whom
they may demand as slaves. The protection of
our ordinary Courts of Justice is refused to the
hunted man who claims to be free, and he is sub
milted to the tender mercies of an irresponsible
Commissioner, who has the trawling bait of a fee
o f $lO held out to him should he grant a certifi
cate, while lie is only to receive $5 should he re
fuse to give it ! This is a trove court, indeed to
determine the important 'question of personal
erty—a premium otlbred to induce the judge to de
,l vide in favor of Slavery.
We notice that Cul. Kays, son of the District
Judge of the tithed States at Philadelphia, has
resigned his office of Commissioner of that Court
rather than carry out the provisions of this Fugi.
Live Slave Law. It is to be hoped that there are
few counties in this State where men can be found
willing to accept an appointment fur the purpose.
We think that the law ought to be repealed, and
hope that it will nut be permitted long to remain
un the statute book.
"N Political Fraud Rebuked.
The official returns from the Senatrial District
of Armstrong, Indiana, and Clarion, shows the
election of MYERS, Whig, by a majority of 84 votes
over Daum, the ',melee° candidate. Perhaps,
remarks the Pittsburg American, .n no instance
has political fraud and dishonesty been more sig
'tally rebuked, than in this. Mr. Drum was in the
Senate last year, and made this district for his own
use! In vain did the Whigs, and many of his own
political friends, otter him the old district, which
would have elected him. But uo—he would have
• nothing less than the 1100 majority of Clarion, to
make his election a matter past doubt, and he got
it—and with it, one of the sorest defeats upon re
cord. He has the further mortification of know
leg that he has to undergo the reflections from his
own party, of having lost to them the majority in
the Senate, by his selfishness and obstinacy. Pol
iticians should learn from this, that however much
they may be applauded for their adroitness in an
instance of particular success, unfairness and il
liberality to either friends or foes, will bring its
visitation of rebuke always too early, and often too
severe. In this instance, "even handed justice"
has "returned the poisoned chalice to their own
lips." We presume the Pennsylvanian is now sat
isfied that the Whigs can "beat A. Drum!'
er HENRY CIII7ItCII, Esq., a democratic tnem
ber of the last legislature and reelected at the late
election, (lied at his residence in Cumberland coun
ty, on Thursday morning of last weeli, after a short
but violent attack of billions fever.
The World's Fair.
Active preparations are still in progress in LOU
don, with reference to the great Industrial Exhi
bition of 1851. According to a recent decision,
five thousand additional feet of room have been
allotted to the productions of the United States,
and ten thousand to Anstrla. Chinese prodne- -
lions will occupy five thousand feet. One hundred
and seven thousand feet have been allotted to
Great Britain and her colonies. The United States
will now occupy eighty-five thousand feet. Bel
gium is to have twenty-eight thousand eight hun
dred feet, and has furnished a list of four hundred
and fifty exhibitors. Austria enumerates six hun
dred and seventy-seven exhibitors, of whom one
hundred and sixty are from Bohemia, three hun
dred and sixty-six from Austria proper, and the
remainder from llnngary, Lombardy, Venice, &c.
France has furnished a list of twelve hundred and
nine exhibitors. Taking the fine arts as one, the
proportions of the other departments of the exhi
bition, so far as received, are as follows:
Raw materials, 1,02
This seems to be a small proportion of raw ma
terials; but, as samples of articles need not be
large, the low ratio may be accounted for.
A Bostonian speculator proposes a plan by which
they who choose may go to London and see the
big fair, in the Spring, and come back again, all
for not snore than one hundred dollars. Be says
he has ascertained from good authority, that pro
vided one hundred passengers can be obtained, the
proprietors of a line of first class packets will agree
to furnish a passage to Liverpool and hack, and
provide good accommodations and excellent fare,
for the sum of sixty dollars each. The whole
trip and stay to include about three months.
A Case of Conscience.
A short time since, the Hey. A. H. Lockman,
of York, Pa., received the following anonymous
communication, containg $l-40:
Reverend Sir:—The money enclosed is for the
State and County—one-half to each. Have the
goodness to put it to its proper place. It is for
taxes which had not been assessed.
According to the request of the writer, the Rev.
gentleman has paid to boils the State and County
$7O each, and published formal receipts therefor.
Our exchanges for several weeks past, have re
ported a more than usual number of instances in
which the manufacturing establishments in various
sections of the country have ceased operations.--
There is little doubt that the necessity for this has
existed for a great many months, and nothing but
a hope that Congress would ultimately, before ad
journing, do something for the suffering interests
' of American labor, has kept our furnaces and fac
tories going. The hope being disappointed, we
may now look for a general suspension of business
among our manufacturers. At Chicopee, Mass.,
nearly four hundred operatives have been dischar
ged from the different cotton mills in that town.—
The high price of the raw materials, middle enor
mous influx of foreign goods into the country are
said to be immediate causes of this result.
dir Mr. Brawley, us was expected, has fallen
largely behind his party vote in Crawford county.
Henderson's majority over bhn is 450, while Mor
rison, Democrat, is 579 ahead of Dungan—show
ing a falling off on Brawley of 1020 votes. His
fellow-citizens have testified that they 'know him.'
DISTRESSING OCCURRENCE.-WC are informed
that one day last week, a dispute occurred between
David Masters and Henry Johnson, near Minyale,
about some buckwheat, growing on a piece of land
in dispute between said Masters and Johnson, but
for which, judgement had, at the last term of Court
gone in fitvor of Masters. Johnson interposed
when Masters went to harvest the buckwheat, and
while the two men were sending, the wife ofJohn
son threw a stone at his antagonist, which acciden
tally hitting her husband on the head, killed him.
He was buried on Saturday last.—Blawasburg
ONE OF MAIMION'B Mex.—The Greenville
(Tennesee) Spy informs us that Azarian Doty,
who resides nine miles north of Greenville, is one
hundred and five years old. He served in the rev
olutionary war under General Marion, and is the
oldest relic of those immortal times is East Tennes
see. He enjoys fine health and a remarkable de
gree of spirits. Only one heavy misfortame has
attended his age, and that is, the entire loss of the
power of vision, Otherwise he is an active, spright
ly monument of other generations.
Jenny Lindrs Benevolence.
The "Swedish Nightingale" continues to capti
vate all hearts, with her unbounded liberality.—
We stated last week, that since her arrival in this
country, she had expended over $lB,OOO in the
way of public charities, as follows:
To New York Societies,
To Boston Societies,
To Chicago Swedish Church,
To say nothing of her private alms-givings, which
amount to a very considerable stun. The "Home
Journal," of New York, records a new act of her
"angelic benevolence," as follows:
"During her first visit here ' a Swede called, and
sent up a note in his native language, requesting
to see her. She did not remember the name, as
she read it, but when the young man came in, she
at once remembered his countenance an old play
fellow when they were children together at school.
She inquired his eiremnstances. Ile is a cabinet
maker, residing with his wife and children at
Brooklyn. The next day Jenny Lind drove over
and made the wife of her old school -mate a long
visit. Again the next day, just before leaving for
Boston, she went again. The husband was not at
home. She gave to the wife a note for himr,—he
opened it on his return—it contained a sweetly
worded requesuliat ho would allow her to give to
his children a memento of their father's school
friendship with Jenny Lind. The "memento"
was a check for TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS!
This anecdote, we assure our readers, is correct in
all its particulars. The fashionables say it is im
possible to get a visit from Jenny Lind. It re
us—with the above circumstance —of a pro
verb we have somewhere seen RICH draw
FRIENDS to them—the POOR draw ANGELS."
A Boston clergyman, on the Sunday before Jen
ny Lind's departure from that city, thus glorified
her in his sermon :
"Why is it that everybody loves that singing
lady, now giving concerts in our city? Nut on
account of the matchless skill of her performances
—not because of the bird-like sweetness of her
tones—but because, like the Saviour of the world,
she goes about doing good; because, by her many
,acts of disinterested benevolence, she shows that
she loves everybody."

A Negro without Ears.
The Rev. B. H. Benton, in a letter to the Lon
don (Va.) Chronicle, says:
Strange, lout not less true, I yesterday saw a
colored woman without cars; not only was she•
without the auricle or the- external part of the ear,
bet there is no trace of a foramen or passage for so
norous vibration—the meatus is entirely closed,
yet she can converse with others and distinctly
hear their words, tbr which purpose she opens her
ntouth. Now, is the sound transmitted to the brain
by means of the tympanum, or dues it act on the
auditory nerves without the iii tervention of the drum
and attendant organs 4 This is un interesting ques
tion for physiologists.
Slave Catchers in Washington.
Our citizens were thrown into quite an excite-
ment on Monday by the appearance of a trio of
Slave-catchers, in our midst. They were in pur
suit of a "fugitive front labor,"who has resided
for several years in the vicinity of Washington.—
As we have no "Commissioner" appointed in this
County, they were unable to obtain a warrant of
arrest and after making some unsuccessful attempts
to procure counsel and aid, were compelled to leave
—the fugitive. The colored portion of our bor
ough were never, perhaps, "stirred up to such a
sudden flood of mutiny," they were seen flying in
every direction, "pale as a cloth," and full of a
determination to understand what was going on.
" Notice to quit" was promptly given to several
colored individuals shout town,; whereupon they
The ''chivalry" will doubtless obtain the neces
sary "documents," from some Fouree and endeav
or to scent the game, which the dictates of Southern
honor and humanity, arc inducing them to pursue !
The whole bah• of our colored population are ar•-
med to the teeth.— Wilskington Commonwealth.
Fugitive Slave Law.
PITTSBURG, October 17.
The Presbyterian Synod (Old School) met here
in Convention to-day, and was organized by elect
ing the Rev. Geo. Marshall, Moderator. Two
hundred ministers and elders are in attendance,
this being the largest synod in connection with
that body. A memorial from the Session and
Congregation of the Presbytery . of Beaver wan
presented, praying the Synod togtve an expression
of its opinion on the Fugitive Slave Law Bill.—
The memorial denounces the law as iniquitous
and unjust. A motion was made to indefinitely
postpone the' subject, which was voted down, but
one voting in its thvor. The Rev. Proctor Smith,
Dr. Camphell and others, spoke against the law,
denouncing it as unconstitutional, subversive of
morality, and oppressive to enlightened freedom,
and declaring that they will satir the penitentiary
rather than submit to such an outrageous law.—
Much excitement prevailed, when finally a com
mittee, composed principally of its bitterest oppo
nents, was appointed to report on the subject.
Fugitive Slaves--Great Excitement.
BOSTON, OCIOI.Cr 25.
The U. S. marshal has warrants for the arrest
of a large number of fugitive slaves, who are stop
ping here. Much excitement prevails among the
negro population, and the Court House has been
surrounded by them all the morning. They are
determined to arrest Huy attempt to earrythe fugi
tives buck to slat•ery, even to the shedding ofblood.
One mum, named Lattimer, who has been herefor
three or Mar years, was recognised and pointed
out by his master. Blood max be shed if an open
arrest is attempted. It is said that a number of
arrests have already been made. There is Veason
to suppose that one or more fugitives are now in
the Leverett street jail. 'rho committee of vigi
-1 lance is now in session. Slips will be printed at
once and distributed over the State. Judge Spra
gue was questioned this morning, but he will not
say whether there have been any arrests or not.—
Ile says, however, that all exanduations of fugi
tives must be public and in the Court House.—
The negroes aro mustering strongly. They aro
seen in groups all about the Court House. For
cible demonstrations will be mule should they as
certain positively that there have been any arrests.

quantities of tobacco and buckwheat will be rais

is said to be immense. Fifty pounds of Guano to

productions of the fullest and finest crops on the

give away about forty millions of acres.
