been received by our county Register, who
is now prepared to record all that may be
sent in to him. It will be remembered
that the new registry law makes it the du
ty of physcians, clergymen, justi 3es of the
peace, &c., to keep a record of certain
facts and circumstances relative to mar
riages, deaths, &e., and return the same
to the county Register; and that a neglect
of this duty subjects them to a penalty.
For the convenience of those concerned
we have prepared Blank Certificates which
can be had at the Journal office or of Mr.
Campbell, the Register, at his office.

the Free Bridge Again.
It will be remembered, that a year or two since,
when free and toll Bridge had a strife at Harris
burg, that an act was passed; authorizing the sale
of to// bridges to counties, on certain conditions,
to wit : the choice of referees by the Bridge Com
pany and the County, and a valuation by them of
the Bridge in question.
We understand, that some time during the past
fall, the Huntingdon Bridge Company and the
Huntingdon County Commissioners, chose refer
ees, who, at their meeting, valued the Bridge at
$3OOO, reserving the toll house. This proposal I
wits then made to the county, and the Commis li
shiners refused Mut offer, but made another ono;
at a somewhat less valuation, which was not ac
cepted by the Bridge Company. Subsequently,
however, we understand, the County Commission
ers recinded their resolution, refusing to accept
the offer of the Bridge Company, and passed an
other agreeing to accept the offer of the Bridge at
$3OOO, including the toll house, &e. We hare
since been informed that owing to a change in the
hoard of Commissioners since the last election,
the board Mr the present refuse to execute the
honds for the price; and here the matter rests.
As an item of 'IOWA, in which every tax payer
is interested, we give our readers the facts as near
as we recollect them.
Broad Top Again.
"The Broad Top Mountain nail Road and Coal
Company" is :to longer a doubtful affair. As we
predicted, inunctliately after the public meeting on
Court week, tie subscribers paid up their first in
stalment; at least enough of them, in two days,
to comply with the requirements of law, and to
authorize the Governor to issue letters patent.—
The necessary certificate was immediately for
warded to the Executive, who promptly issued
The Company now is; and we call upon all
subscribers, who have not yet paid up, to come in
soon, or they will loose an opportunity to vote at
the first election of officers. An immediate or
panization of the Company will take place, and
nefire measure, taken to make the rood.
Our Defeat--Why was It!
Thus far, attire the November election, we have
not attempted to assign any reasons for the un
looked for defeat of our party and its candidates.
True, we, like many others, might have suppose I
certain things ministered to that result, without
having any reasons for that supposition, other
than the notions which our own disappointed and
suddenly excited feelings conjured up; and in do-
ing so, we might have done injustice to those who
were as zealous and as anxious as ourselves.—
Now, the noise of the strife has died away;—the
smoke of the battle has been dispelled; end our
feelings have been calmed, and chastened, by the
utter overthrow. Submissive patience, enables
us to cast about ns, with a desire to see, what, if
any, special causes brought about the result.
There are possibly two classes of causes main
ly instrumental of our defeat, viz : External umd
internal—those outside, and those inside, of the
Whig party. Tu the former of which we shall
now, for a few moments, ask the attention of our
Our opponents, the modern Democracy, are a
tireless .and indomitable crowd. Many years ago,
one of their high priests said, they were held to
gether by the "eo-hcsive power of plunder," and•
though we are not disposed to use the slang of
partisanship, to offend, still we cannot presume
that this picture, as painted by one of their fam
ily, is offensive, and we shall take it for granted
that it is correct. Our readers, do nut all of them
see, how they maintain their cohesive qualities.
They know only, that at times, their party seems
severed, and the two, three, or more factions, are
busy in every kind of ill mannered abuse of the
other fragments; and they know,:that though these
tends secs as deadly as they were of uld, between
highland clans; still in the twinkling of an eye;
the stern brow, the curled lip, the flashing eye,
and the abusive tongue, all meet and mingle into
silence, and placid pence; and in another moment
they are all together, and pulling with a will for
one common purpose. Our readers see this, but
all of them do not know why it is so.
Well, we can tell. Loco Focoism has but one
end to attain. It matters not how wildly and mad
ly its severed fragments may fight; Cass am , his
friends may call Buchanan and his followers fed
eralists, and fools,—Buchanan and his adherents,
may in turn, call Cass and his admirers, old A)g
iev and factionists—and both, and all, may join
in pointing at Douglass, and his pets, as pot-house
politicians; and they in turn, send bark the bil
lings gate, with interest. Yet with all this, each
and every of them, have but one purpose—they
aim at one end—the spoils. To secure them, they
unite at a word. Their hatred is forgotten in the
hot pursuit. When the game is fairly up, like
hounds its a hunt, they spend no time in quarrel
ling, but each seeks to out strip the other in the
Loco Focoisin has an appetite for party spoils,
that nothing else will appease. In every walk of
life, where you find any spoils to divide, it enters.
into the contest as an element, of itself—no mat
ter where—in church or State. That party never
looses an opportunity to give to the hungry a
crumb, to excite, if not to allay, that appetite. In
every township election, they seek to elect is. Con
stable, Overseer, or Supervisor; even in the choice
of an Arbitrator, for the same cause, they name
one of their kind. This is a fixed principle of
their party economy. The great captains and the
little corporals, all have an eye to party power,
and party organisation, in the dispensing of any
favor; and with it they inculcate the certain truth,
that such favors are only diSpensed to their party
friends. Thus. they marshal' a force that no or
dinary means can weaken or win.
This, then, is the party we had to encounter.
with their appetite, fur party ;cottage, sharpened
by an abstinence of four years. When the lament
ed Taylor succeeded, they bad grown fat, indo
lent, and impudent, upon the corn of the public
crib; and the people would bear it no longer.—
They were dumb-founded by their defeat, but for
a moment, we may say, they went at work at once
to be ready at the next election, and for four
years they have been toiling assiduously, to se
cure the end. They had hut one object to attain,
and everything was wielded to secure it. Is it to
be wondered at, that no one of the causes of our
defeat; this adhesive power of plunder is first con
sidered', We shall hereafter notice others.
Cabinet Making.
The letter writers, and newspaper editors are
busy making a Cabinet for President Pierce.—
Each pretending to be more wise than his neigh
bor, when in truth, neither knows any thing, about
even the probabilities, of who will form that Cab
inet. Any person can guess, but it is only guess
work. For our part, we dont care who he calls
around him as constitutional advisers. The pol
icy of his party is well understood, and we have
no doubt that he will select saris a Cabinet, as will
maintain that policy, in such a way, as will satis
fy even. the "practical allies" who surround the
British Queen.
Death's Doings.
The fathers of the Commonwealth are
rapidly disappearing from our midst. In
the brief space of a week, no less than three
of uur old and distinguished public men
have been called away from amongst us.—
Ex-Governor Shultz, who died at Lancas
ter on Tuesday a. week.ago, at the ripe age
of 80 years; Ilon. John Sergeant, at Phil
adelphia, on Tuesday last, aged 7a years;
and lieu. Walter Forward, of Pittsburg,
in his 65th year. Perhaps no three indi
viduals could now be named in the State,
who have enjoyed a larger share of public
regard and esteem, or who have received
such marked evidences of public confidence,
without stooping to any of the arts of po
litical trickery by which the mere dema
gogue too often succeeds in flattering the
multitude and securing for himself an
ephemeral distinction. Peace be to their
Ca" Sec first and fourth pages for interesting
reading matter.
Our Common Schools.
It will be a source of lasting gratitude
to some of Pennsylvania's Statesmen, that
when the friends of Common Schools ap
peared to be in a minority in the State,
they dared, to urge and advocate theSehool
System. The names of Thaddeus Stevens
and George Wolf, should never be forgot
ten by the friends of Common Schools; and
that system itself, as it has gradually grown
in beauty and strength, will be their proud
est, and most enduring monument.
We do not know, that we were ever more
impressed with the truth of the above, than
on the occasion of the Exhibition of the
boys, in the School of Mr. Barr, on last
Tuesday evening. It is very rare, that in
children of their age, you see greater man
ifestations of application and success. A
very large number of the boys of his school
took part in the exercises; and we never
saw a school, composed of boys of their age,
get up an Exhibition which passed off with
so much eclat.. Each seemed to give evi
dence that ho tried to win the praises of
teacher, parents, and public; and it was
truly gratifying to the teacher and his pu
pils, to receive such assurances of the pub
lic, that they had succeeded.
The Town Hall was crowded to excess,
and after having stood upon our feet till
fatigued, we were compelled to leave be
fore the exercises were concluded; and we
regret to say, without having the pleasure
of hearing the address of H. 13. Swoope,
Esq., who had kindly consented to deliver
one appropriate to the occasion. Of what
we know of the ability of Mr. Swoops, and
what we have heard of his effort, we are
confident that it was highly creditable, and
calculated to give all, a higher estimate of
his powers, as a writer and speaker.
A word to the boys themselves. We
were pleased, gratified, with your efforts,
at speaking "in public on the stage•" Still
you can do better, and you, we know, will
thank us for the hint, as to how—next
time speak a little slower and articulate
a little more distinctly.
Advice to Flibtist lets.
Now that the great day of Flibustering
is about to dawn in earliest, and the gentle
men in that line are likely to have their
hands full of business and their beads full
of excitement, a word of advice from a
mere spectator, oven if not kindly taken,
may be found profitable in the way of sa
ving useless expenditure of labor, money
and life. Therefore,
1. If you want Cuba, buy it if you can;
don't stand about the price; double Mr.
Polk's offer of a hundred and eighty mill
ions and soon, up to a sum sufficient to
entice the Spanish Government to sell
out. In that way you make sure at once
of extending the area of freedom and add
ng two new Senators to the invincible pha
;anx of the Slave power. Wo know this is
lot what you want to do. You want to
Texanize Cuba. But you can't. The Span
iards are too much for you, aided, as in the
last extremity they will be, by halt a mill
ion of infuriated negroes. It will never do
to drive them into abolishing the patriar
chal institution. What would Cuba be
worth to the Model with five
hundred thousand free blacks among her
citizens ? And what effect would a negro
State in that neighborhood have upon the
peace and glory of our (wn Southern
brethren? You see the thing is impossi
ble, and like prudent men you will give it
up, or at least postpone it till 1856, when
it will make a good war-cry for the Do
2. Having thus laid Cuba aside for the
present, your thoughts will naturally diH
rect themselves toward St. Domingo.—'
There the chances are better. Prepara-.
tions, it is said, have already boon made to
colonize that interesting island. A stea
mer is bought, or to be bo•ight, and eight
hundred whole-souled flibustiers are to
move out there on tense highly advantage
ous for themselves. We don't know wheth
er our old friends Duff and Ben. E. Green
are the engineers of this enterprise, but it
would not be discreditable even to their
genius and experience. The Colonists go
as the champions of freedom in a double,
or rather in a treble sense. In the first
place they will defend republicanism as
embodied in the Dominican Republic; in
the second place they will cotnbat monar
chy and despotism, as embodied in his Ma
jesty Faustin, the Emperor of llayti, and
in the third place they will finally reestab
lish Slavery in Dominica and annex the
same as a new negro market, to our own
glorious confcderatiin. Thus they will
accomplish all that a true-born flibustier
could desire, and till up the measure of
their own asl•irations.
3. But even this brilliant picture has its
dark- side- You willrequire a great many
flibustiers. to reest ahliqh Slavery 'there, and
what with yellow fewer and other little in
cidents of such an enterprise, it will be ex
pensive. It will also have serious compli
cations in its train. Suppose Dominica
converted into a United State, what is to
become of Hayti? Shall we make war on
and conquer its million or so of people (
And after conquest, what shall we do then!
Annex them also to the Union as a free
State? Or make slaves of them and divide
them among the conquerors after the good
old patriarchal style ? As for instance :
To Capt. (Gen.) Isaiah Rynders a village
with 1,000 head; to Senator (President ?)
Douglas a village with 200 head; to Henry
B. Stanton a plantation with 50 head ; to
Gen. Cass a large drove, with a tract of
wild land; and so on till all the heroes of
pure Democratic flibustierism have had
their share. But as we said, this move
ment would be difficult in some respects,
and we accordingly advise its postponement
along with that of Cuba.
4:But in Mexico there are none of these
hinderances, and you may fall to without
hesitation. All the northern part of the
country may be had with good management
without much trouble, and what will be
more grateful to your feelings, without
danger. The States of Sonora, Chihuahua,
Coahuila, New-Leon, Tamaulipas, Duran
go, and perhaps San Luis Potosi, should
first be struck at. As the Camanches are
already carrying on a pretty potent war
against the Mexicans in those States, the
flibustiers would do well to make a little
arrangement with them for operations on
joint account. The six or seven provinces
could be revolutionized in the course of
next summer or autumn, and Slavery be
established in them in season for their an
nexation before the Thirty-third Congress
has closed its first session. It is true that
this would be rather quick work, but prac
' tice makes perfect and public opinion is
ripe for tho event. At least three full
grown States could be got out of the batch,
with six Senators, besides others in pros
pect, suJicient to balance all the free states
likelyt.WOme in for 41f a century. Thus
the Union will be preserved, while the look
for private plunder is excellent
This, then, is the plan for the flibustiers
to adopt. It is worth a dozen of any they
can lay against Cuba or St. Domingo.—
Those may be good for future elections,
but this is good for immediate practical use.
And meanwhile, as long as the prsent Ad
ministration is in power, and until they
can get themselves well organized and fit
ted out, our friendly advice to the common
run of individuals among them is, in any
little jobs of flibustiering they may under
take on personal risk and account, to take
care and keep out of the hands of the law.

Paying for a Nevitspaper,
The Germantown Telegraph very truly
says: Except when the cash system is ex
clusively adopted and rigidly observed, we
know of no business in which its bills are
so difficult to collect, as subscription to a
newspaper. This is not because subscri
bers are unwilling to pay; but it is princi
pally owing to pore neglect. Each one
imagines that, because his year's indebted
nesss amounts to so small a sum, the prin
ter surely cannot be very badly in want of
that, without a moment thinking that the
fruits of his entire business are made up
exactly of such little sums, and that the
aggregate of all the subscribers is by no
means an inconsiderable amount of money,
and without which the publisher could not,
for a single month, continue the issue of
his paper.

true than an old saying that straws show

lowed to infer from this announcement that
Gov. Bigler is a eandidinate for a Secretr
ryship. We know he is, as lie has a right
to be, an aspiring man, but still we had
not supposed his ambition to be quite so
vaulting as to have himself put forward in
competition with such old stagers as Bu
chanan and Dallas. It may be however
that It is only the work of his aspiring Sec
retary, who would doubtlessly be quite
willing to take his place as Governor. A
few months more, and we shall have some
queer developments, some very smiling fa
ces, and a great many more whose visages
will indicate fire and fury against Pierce
and his Cabinet.

The National Intelligencer publishes ti
corespondence between James Buchannni
while Secretary of State, and the Hon R.
M. Saunders, our then Minister at the
Spanish Court, from which it appears that
an oveture was made during Mr. Polk's
Administration to purchase Cuba, and that
the offer was made by the President upon
his own responsibility: though the heavi
ness of the acquisition might well have sug
gested the propriety of consulting at least
the Senate, if not both Houses of Congress,
before placing so vast a power in the hands
of our Minister to Spain. Nothing was
needed to the success of this overture but
a willingness on the part of the Govern
ment of Spain to part with the richest jew

promptly, courteously, but absolutely de
How it has happened, says the Intellgen
cer, that this interesting document, though
sent to Congress in reply to a specific call,
has not earlier seen the light, is explained
only by the indifference on the part of the
House of Representatives to communications
made by the Executive, though called for
by itself; in consequence of which this
Presidential Message lay on the table for
six or seven weeks without being opened,
and, when opened, it was, without any ex
amination of its contents, ordered to be
printed for the use of the members. Such
was the state of the printing question in
Congress at that time, that the House
might, for any information that it would
afford, as well have condemned the docu
