Whigs and Wh ig Papers.
There arc some men, whose good opinion we
esteem. There are others. whose praise should
czeite suspicion, and whose censure is some evi
dence that the ohject commands respect. To the
latter we shall have little to say. To the former,
the very renpert we owe them, compels us to no
The senior editor of the "Harrisburg Tele
graph," we have long known, and as long res
pected, fbr his sterling love of truth and right,—
with the junior editor, however. our acquaintance
has been more limited. One of them, and it mat
ters not which. for it carries with it the force of
character which the Telegraph has eversitstained,
has assumed the right to call us to an account for
our correspondence of the 12th inst., and we must
defend ourselves as best we can. As a Whig, we
are hound to make good oar defence—as a man,
we must save truth from injury.
We know well, that no young man in our State,
maintains a, higher reputation than the Hon. J. C.
Kunkel, for talent, and eloquence. These gifts,
with large Requirements, hove won him a more
than common fame. Yet none of these, give him
a license to assail the absent, or to stoop to false
hood in. debate. The Telegraph may dismiss the
charge of brother Benedict, with its "genial" eon.
straction. But, permit us to say, although, as
Tony Lumpkin said, "we say it, who ought not
to say it," where we arc known, rind where our
assailants are known, we shall be believed.. It is
true, we do not understand thnt the Telegraph de
nies that our charge is true. We heard, and noted
well, and• spoke of it, nt the time, the general
charge of tile " irntentlffulness of the press," and
while we wield the pen, no man, of any party,
shall thus characterize the press, and we remain
silent. If the Telegraph is disposed to assume
that passion. made as blind And deaf, we can only
soy, we shall he found, in due time cool enough.
Now, ns to our rernarks.ahout Senator Barnes I I
anti his brother, we- said that. which Honorable
Senators can prove, it' they have a visit to speak
oat. And we gave the man David, notice in dine
that the world-should know his shame. If they,
or the Editors of the Telegraph, or our Whig
friends, any where, suppose that we are to be
scolded or flattered into silence, we recommend
that they study our character and history anew.
We love the Whig party, its independent and
truth loving press,—its manly and faithful parti
zans—its pure end patriotic principles; we have
lived with, and fm them all. We hnve, for twen
ty-three years, been. a mark at which the political
opponents of that party, have directed their pois
oned arrows. The assassin's knife,—and the
torch of the house !turner, have l -en lifted against
us by their cut-throats and rufflans,—yet with all
this: we have won the esteem of hundreds of their
honest wird/A:ls, and we are proud of their friend
ship. Thebes of 'oar party have felt our power,
what ever it may have been. We have spent oar
hest strength; and the freshness and vigor of our
young manhood, for the party of our choice, and
we have no unkind words, or •'hard blows for its
true friandx. We say, as Ire said last week, we
have pnid'a *consideration for all we ever re •
ceived from the Whig party.
If, however; the press of that party, .thinkt
are ready to he Milted out to die, why' Win lion

We wish to give some of these gentle Men a
piece of information—" Brother Benedict" fins the
reputation of being a man of truth where he is
known, even in Harrisburg; and if he is to be
atoned,,because he tells the truth, there are some
Whigs 'who would like to know it in time. Or
to my the least, they prefer that the innocent shall
cast the ftrst.otones.

The division line between Montour and

It would be a difficult matter to calculate
what that question has cost the State.--
There has been sonic difference of opinion
as to the publication of a u Daily Record"
of the proceedings of the Legislature. It
was once agreed to, as we understand, and

are glad to see. Some such law oUght to

Concord is the Mecca of the party. Thither
have the pilgrims all turned their faces ; thither
do they bend their footsteps. Some, could they
prove their fitith and secure the desired end, we
doubt not, would willingly measure the way with
the length of their body. The tide of life, which
has flowed toward Concord, has been continuous.
Its ebbings were but the return of one, to call to

Now, it is not a supposable case, that all this
can take place, and not occasionally produce some
little jarring among the chaos of elements, We
see, fbr instance, that the Bedford Gazette, con
ducted by that mighty General,—Bowman, qui
etly lends, our worthy Secretary of State, F. W.
Hughes, a rap on the nose, to make him step
back, and talks of a grettSry shret in Harrisburg,
called the " Democrat," that is braising Hughes
because, ns Bowman alleges, a pardon procured
through Hughes, saved the editors of the Demo
crat from the felons coll. Bowman having been
pardoned once himself, knows how pardoni are
obtained, and what is to be puid, of course be has
a right to speak out. We go in for freedom of
speech—we do—and we say, hit em again Giner
al. Though we are free to admit that the circum
stance, that the Bedford Gazette is against Mr.
Hughes, speaks volumes for him.
That the plan may not be all on one side, the
Pennsylvanian comes down oil Bowman. (or did)
and hints that he was a party to the transaction
which hastened Searight off, before his time, to
the "pale nations." And the same paper speaks
of one of their party dignitaries, as the " long
. heired, leather-complexioned. lank-looking chap,
who does the Commissioners' dirty work, and who
• bores every man of distinction who visits Harris
• burg, as he has every member of the Legislature
to sign the petition of the would be Governor of
Minesota." All of which is very right and proper
on the part of the Pennsylvanian. We have read
some where, an old srw, perhaps our readers re
member it, it commences " when rogues, 6,,"
and ends with something about honest people
"getting their own," It strikes no, if there is any
truth in that maxim, that possibly the honest ci
tizens of our State and ottr Country, will be likely
to hear enough about their " Loco Foco fellows"
(said by themselves,) to convince them that we,
of the Whig press, generally, speak as well of
them as they deserve.

To the Teachers of Hunt. County
It is a fact generally conceded that eve
ry profession, both for its individual wel
fare, and the beneficial influence it is to
exert upon society, should have a fixed and
elevated standard by which its members
should be tried. The medical profession
has its rules of qualification, by which
those seeking admission into its ranks are
judged. The theological and legal profes
sions have also their established standard
of qualifications. Ours alone is destitute
of this safeguard against iinaiorality, quack
ery, and incompetency. As a necessary
consequence we find its ranks filled with
those who are totally unqualified to dis
charge its important duties, and exercise
its high prerogatives. Persons of this de
scription, who would be a curse to any call
ing, especially detract from the dignity and
honor of a profession such as ours, and on
ly serve to drag it down lower and lower in
public estimation, until finally instead of
commanding respect, it will be treated with
justly merited .contenipt.
It heroines us, therefore, Teachers of
Huntingdon County, to raise a high and
honorable standard, gather round and sup
port it, until we have established the dig
nity of our calling, upon a foundation as
permanent and elevated, as that which
forms the basis and ensures the respect of
the other less important, though more for
tunate, learned professit ns. To accomplish
this great object , all that is necessary is
, the or'sfanziatiort of teachers in one bold
' and well dirddtdd effort to sever the chain
which has so long bound them down, and,
' becoming their own guardians, fix a stand
ard of qualification by which applicants are
to be tried. It should be remembered that
we are engaged in a &minion cause, whose
only object is the common weal. Hence
to the motives shirk induce others to raise
their profession to a higher sti.nilard,
Teachers have the additional one--the qou
sideration that every advantage to tlidin
will be an advantage to the whole commu
nity, which will be felt and appreciated
bong after they shall have passed from the
stage df action. Front among our pupils
will rise up teachers, who will, perhaps hn
consciously, sot us up as objects of im
itation. Thus our infloence may extend
far down through successive generations;
for it is an observation frequently made that
some of the most important changes in the
physical, moral, and oven in the political
world, have arisen from remote and appa
rently trifling causes. The progress of ci
vilization, the advancement of knowledge,
and the enlarged diffusion of •tospel light
and liberty" go i anu in hand with the
successful results of the Teachers' profes
We call upon you, the Teachers of Hun
tingdon County, to organize. A conven
tion has been called for that purpose, to
meet in the borough of Huntingdon on the
22d day of February; fit 1 o'clock P. M.
Let all the tenehera iu the cimitty,both male
and female, attend, and exert themselves
to accomplish the great resultS to which
we have alluded. In neighboring counties
associations have already been organized
and arc now iu a prosperous and Sourish
lug condition. Let us not be longer be
hind in the great and important Reform.
Let us come up manfully to the work, and
resolve to raise our profession to that high
and honorable position which it about&
occupy, where it will command, not only
respect, but reverence!
