J. & W. Saxton have just returned from the city with a very extensive and splendid assortment of Dry Goods of all qualities and prices. These gentlemen do a very heavy business, and are always ready to accommodate their friends and customers to any thing in their line. In our issue to-day will be found an ad vertisement of the Mount Union Hotel, now kept by Isaac & William Myers, who are , clever and obliging, and worthy the confi dence and patronage of the travelling cons muntty. A line of coaches runs tri-weekly between their hotel and Chambersburg fur the accommodation of the public. Also, a daily line as far as Shade Gap; and the mail is now carried daily to Shirleysburg. Arrangements are being made to have a daily mail as far as Shade*Gap; all of which accommodations and conveniences have been put in operation and will be conduct ed by the enterprising gentlemen above na med. Our friend, Edmund Snare, has just re turned from the East with a most splendid and extensive assortment of Jewelry,cloeks, fte., which can be purchased at very low prices. Mr. Snare is very obliging, and takes pleasure in exhibiting his stock to all who favor him with a call. Those who wish nest. substantial articles of the latest style and best quality, in his line, will do well to patronize his establishment. The Card of S. Toram, N. E. corner of Ninth and Market eta., Phila., appears in to-day's paper. The establishment is one of the most splendid and extensive in the city, and those who wish cheap, elegant, and fashionable furniture of all qualities and kinds, cannot do better than to call with him. Capt. Cannon has just returned from the city with a cheap, and fashionable assort ment of. Spring and Summer Goods. Give the brick corner, on Rail Road street, a call, and you can find any thing in his line that can gratify taste or satisfy necessity. Next week Count commences here, and we hope our subscribers will not for get us. We would like very much to have all accounts for back subscription settled before we enlarge our paper, and during the Sessions of Court will be a fine oppor tunity for those who have other business in town to do so. At our first issue of the enlarged sheet we desire a new era to com mence in the history of the Huntingdon Journal. Removal. Glasgow & Steel, Saddle, Harness, and Trunk manufacturers, have removed to M'Cahan's Row, on Main street, East of Reads' Drug Store, where they are ready to accommodate their customers and friends. They are clever and obliging fellows, and if they donrt t receive a very large portion of public patronage, it is not because they can't make cheap, neat, and substantial ar ticles. Those wantilig articles in their line, will do well and save money by dealing with. them. ('' The editor of the Globe will please accept our compliments for the flattering notice of us in his last issue. He has our best wishes for his happiness and continued success in his calling, 07" James Shirley, who has been eon fined in the Blair County prison for some time, wus convicted, during their Court last week, in the first degree, for the mur der of his wife. Important to the Publie. We have received a copy of a bill read HAERISBURO, March 30, '53. I by Col. Wharton, from the Committee on SENATE.—The Senate, after disposing the Judiciary, and now before the Legis- of some unimportant business, took up the lature for action, giving Justices of the bill authorizing the Pennsylvania Railroad Peace power, with a jury of six, to hear, Company y as considered toconsti and 'passed. rail &Ads, and finally determine charges for crimes of The Senate took up the r bill erecting the a nettain diameter within this Common- counties of Centre and Clearfield into a wealth, and to lessen the expenses it (trim- new and separate judicial district, and the inal proceedings. aama passed finally.

Third. Charges for poisoning, killing, maiming, wounding, or cruelly beating any animal, Fourth. Charges for selling poisondus substances not labelled as such as required by law. Fifth. Charges for maliciously removing, altering, defacing, or cutting down monu ments or marked trees, ornamental or fruit trees. Any person charged with any of the above offences and arrested on warrant,, l can be tried for the same before any Jus tice residing in the county in which the crime may have been committed, providing the defendant shall agree thereto. The defendant shall be held in recogni zance, or in the custody of the constable arresting him, or his deputy or deputies, as directed by the court during the time that may elapse between arrest and the time of These courts of special sessions shall have power to punish by fine or imprison ment, or both, as the nature of the case may require; but such fine shall in no case exceed fifty dollars, nor such imprisonment three months. All fines recovered after conviction before these special courts shall be applied to Common School purposes, in the township in which such conviction shall be bad. And the defendant shall stand committed to the common jail of the coun ty until all fines imposed by the court shall be paid. The defendant can appeal from the decision of these special courts to the Quarter Sessions of the county, on the ground of illegal proceedings. These are a few of the prominent fea tures of the bill, and although we do not like the provision of some of its sections, yet we highly approve its general object. The lessening of the expenses now attend , ing the criminal proeeedings in our Courts of Quarter Sessions, is a subject of great Imagnitude to the tax-payers of every cow:- ty. We all know what an enormous unne cessary expense our own county has here tofore been subject to, in consequence of absolutely trifling and unimportant matters in the Quarter Sessions. Causes of great magnitude, and of infinite importance to the parties concerned, have been put off from term to term, on account, often, of the greater portion of the time of the court having been consumed in the trial of petty cases in the Sessions, frequently originating in personal hatred, malice, or jealousy. Few cases of a criminal nature come be fore our Comte that Justices of the Fence could not just as well try and pars judg ment on. If a bill of this nature should pass or Legislature, there would be a vast saving to the tax-paying portion of the community. The money they have no* to pay to defray the expenses incident to our Courts of Quarter Sessions, would in part be saved, and there would be, in addition, a vast deal of trouble avoided. In our opinion, the general purpose of the bill is commendable, and should, we think, be so regarded by all who feel an interest in their own personal and pecunia ry welfare, and in the prosperity of the community. Hon. James Pollock. The Blair County Whig, and other Whig journals of the State, suggest the Hon James Pollock, of Northumberland coun ty, as the next Whig candidate for Gover nor of Pennsylvania. This suggestion we most heartily endorse. We know James Pollock, and there is no man in the State of Pennsylvania we would rather support for that important office. We know, too, eat there is no man in the State that would be more likely to lead the Whig party to certain victory than the talented and pop ular ex-Congressman of the “old thirteenth district," lie is a gentleman of brilliant talents, and one of the most pleasing, elo quent, and effective speakers we have ever listened to. His personal and political popularity at the North is unbounded, as was evinced by his repeated triumphs in one of the strongest Locofoco Congression al districts in the State, carrying every county in the district. The Whig party could do no better than to nominate him as their next candidate for Governor.—Read mg Journal. Pennsylvania Legislature. March 31, 'SW SENATE.—The bill to incorporate the Erie City Railroad Company, was taken up and passed Committee of the Whole, and was then postponed—yeas 19; nays 10. Mr. Buckalew, from the Judiciary Com mittee, reported negatively upon the bill supplementary to the act relative to last wills and testaments. HOUSE.—The Home, on motion of Mr. Atherton, took up the bill to incorporate the Central Coal Company, which was con sidered and passed finally. The hour of 12 o'clock having arrived, , the Speaker and members of the Senate were introduced and provided with seats, and the convention of the two Houses be ing then organized, proceeded to open the proposals for executing the Public Print ing of the State, for three years from the Ist of May next, agreeably to the act of Assembly. There were 37 separate proposals for the English printing, which, after the ex amination of all the bids, was allotted to A. Boyd Hamilton, at 70 -16th per cent. below the prices fixed in the Act. The German printing was also awarded to A. Boyd Hamilton, at 63 1-16th per cent. below the established prices. The Convention, on motion, adjourned, land the members of the Senate retired. The House adjourned. Broad Top Coal and Ore. The letter published below is from the Geologi.4, J. P. LESLEY, Esq.,who has recently examined the Btodd tip Coal Field : PHILADELPHIA, March 15th, 953, L. T. Watson, Esq.—Sir: In reply to your request for my professional opinion upon the merits of the Broad Top Coal and Ore, I can only repeat what ,others have already said, that, so soon as any ea sy access to market is given to these min erals, such as the proposed railroad to Huntingdon, they will take a high rank in the market, and be very valuable to those who work them properly. The coal, es pecially that of the lowest and most exten sive bed of the region, is of the finest qnal ity. The lowest bed is unsittpassel for forge fires, and as a steam generator ; and Mr. Perry ; a high authority in practical iron making, assures me that it can be worked raw or uncoked in the furnace. It is a very pure white ash, standing midway, between the semi-anthracite and setni-bitu- 1 mious coals, than which no better charac-I ter could be given to a bed. It lies so as to induce me to believe that it. is little or not at all faulty; is accessible on both sides of the valleys that drain the interior; has a breasting of from 500 to 1500 feet along the mountain for several miles; extends al so over the bottom of the adjoining basins, and will be found, I think, to maintain its average thickness of 5i to 6 very regular ly througout its whole extent. It is, there fore, practically Inexhaustible. There are other valuable beds higher in the series, but this lower is the bed of the region. '1 he furnace at Hopewell has the coal within a mile of it, an immensely valuble deposits of cold short iron ore outcropping behind iti an ore which will be pursued hereafter from gap to gap, the whole length of Terrace mountain, and upon which a hundred furnaces might run a cen tury. In the presence of the not short ores of the neighborhood, and worked in the old fashion, this ore has been little es teemed. But Mr. Perry confirms me in the opinion, that hereafter this difference of value is destined to vanish, as he says he can, by using the bituminous coals coked, or the Broad-Top coals raw, produce out of this very ore a metal equal to the best in the market., and owing to the excellence of the situation, at an expense of several, dollars a ton less than iron can be produced upon the Lehigh with anthracite. Besides thiiinexhaustible bed at the fur nace, the less reliable, and therefore less valuable carbonates of the coal measures are yet to be proved, and may yield a largo supply of ore, nearly all of it red short.— For instance, the coal bed which over a vast region of Western Pennsylvania car ries the "burr stone" iron ore, upon which many of the Allegheny River furnaces run, occurs in• the Broad Top close by, and ef forts will be made hereafter to explore its overlying ore. The Montours Ridge (or Danville) Iron ore, runs along in its proper position in the lower red shale at the foot of Tussey's Mountain, within four or five miles of the furnace, and has already been extensively worked, and is of its usual quality. It is my opinion, from what I have seen of the western side of the Broad Top, that it presents remarkable advantages in the quality and pose of its beds of fuel, in the wants of the surrounding region, in its rea dy access to market by a branch road from Ote Pennsylvania Railroad of thirty miles hi length, in its beds cf ore, and in its wa ter power, &c. for the investment of ener gy and wealth. am, six, very respectfully yours, &c. J. P. LESLtY, Top. Geol. The Recall of Santa Anna. Santa Anna is called to the supreme pow er in Mexido for the sixth time. The ablest man of his country, hti is her evil genius ; always distnetted, and resorted to by the people only when all is desperate; and an archy and disolution stare them in the face, his temporary popularity has not failed to be followed by universal execration; on each former occasion he Has only made worse a state of things alrbady intolerable; and now his return wears a gloomy and sinister aspect. It is like the calling in of an ex ecutioner to end the life and the sufferings of a patient who cannot hope to recover, and is resolved no longer to struggle with his pangs. For a quarter of a century Mexico has steadily approached her doom. A public debt whose interest she has not paid; an ig norant clergy owning a great part of the property and hindering all improvements; a people so destitute of native energy as to tend perpetually to lose themselves in the native Indian races, not absorb or expel the latter, to make room for a manlier and stronger breed—without education and trained only to be plundered and led by the nose by the great men or the groat scamps above them; with no industry and no security for property; with a horde of military officers to prey upon the nation and to make of its government the prize of lawless violence;--where has there been any solid ground i to hope that Mexico could rise to au honorable position among the nations of the world ? There has been none, and however benevolent sentimental ity might deplore the fact, and dream of better times for the future, Mexico has made xto advances toward real independence and substantiaLpower. For these twenty years the nominal expenses of her adminis tration have exceeded the revenue, and the deficit has been covered by leaving the for eign creditor unsatisfied, and referring the domestic employee to private taxation, in the shape of bribes and robbery, for pay ment which the Treasury could not make. As is always the ease under such circum stances, the rich have grown richer and the poor poorer, while the country has been torn by political feuds, Federalists disputing with Centralists the possession of the unlsatspy people. Then the war with the U. States cause to give a fatal shock to the decaying system: and now at last with all genuine national spirit extinguish ed, this unprincipled intriguer is brought back to undertake the Government, in which his highest success hat been tyran ny, anti his best skill has only served to envenom the disease. \t e may be sure that whatever he now does will only con tribute to precipitate the ruin of his coun try. - How the Mexican Nationality will disap pear is a problem which time only can solve. Tho ordinary impression is that the' entire country will be incorporated into the U. S. But there are reasons why such an event cannot easily or rapidly be accomplished.— The Mexicans do not love the Yankees.— , They dread being swallowed by that om , niverous Northern people. They fear tho.t their religion sill he swept away in a flood of toleration and Protestantism. And they must desire by every means to avert the fate. It is true that on the other hand, I the wealthy and powerful class—the cler gy alone excepted perhaps—fearful of the ruin that now threatens to overwhlem eve rything, would gladly sell the nation out' to any bidder offering security for them selves as the price. The bargain proposed to Gen. SCOTT shows how greedily a trans action of this sort would be taken bold of by the class in question. But the people of the United States are necessarily the other day party to the bargain, and the last experiment in the admission of Mexican territory was not an easy or a pleasant one. Along with the question of adiniting new States beyond the Rio Grande, the other question of Slavery and the Wilmot Provi so inevitably comes. What man, what par , ty desires to have the country again con , vuleed with that I Does Gen. Pierce, with all his talk about annexation in the abt , strut? Would he like to face that issue, and peril upon it the chances of his party and his own , ambition I But it is not well to cultivate excessive confidence in the premises. Preposterous as the annexation of six millions of Indians and two millions of the mixed Mexican race, may seem, with an unexampled anti slavery agitation for its accompaniment, it is possible that it may, yet be forced upon us by the present administration, with Gen. Santa Anna for its accomplice. Let there not be too much reliance on the patriotic common sense, or even on the enlighened self-interest hich some ray attribute to those now in power at Washington. The crisis may be hurried to a decision before the current four years are past. Death of Mrs. Fillmore. WASHINGTON, March 30. Mrs. Atmore died at Willard's hotel at nine o'clock this morning. She had been suffering with Pneumonia for some time past, but no serious apprehensions were entertained. until within a few days. The immediate cause of her death was suffoca tion, caused by the accumulation of water upon the lungs. Mr. Fillinc7re, with his family and friends, I will leave with the remains of Mr. F. oar . ly to-morrow morning for Buffalo. State of Italy. A correspondent of the Boston Traveler, writing from Florence, sa:, s : "Italy Is troubled to her heart's core. In Florence; we cannot, of course, learn the true extent of the late revolutionary movements at Milan, Rimini Mantua, and elsewkere. We only know ;hat blood has been shed On both sides, and scaffolds are again erected. On the part of the It alians, the movement was premattite, but I nt present all Italy is one vdlcaro, slum bering, it is true; but acquiring strength for an eruption, that will eventually force foreign despotism and civil papacy from its soil. The deep silent hatred borne to the Priests and Austrians is frightful. It per vades the very atmosphere, and is drawn in at every breath by all classes but the, few sold to their rulers by interest or cir cumstances. Disguise it as we may, there is a general uneasiness in Europe. Mon archs and Governments distrust each oth er; the people distrust both; peace is main tained by bayonets, and not, as Mr. Cobden would have us believe, by good motives. Mrs. Fillmore. The Tribune in speaking of the decease of this estimable lady says, that Mrs. Fill more was not fitted by nature to dazzle in a ball-room nor to win admiration from casual observers; nor did she find delight in crowds or ostentatious display. Few, however, can have known her without be ing impressed with the blending in her character of good sense with high princi ple, of refined womanly feeling with active beneficence. As a wife and mother, none could be more exemplary; as a Christian, few have more happily combined earnest piety with unaffected humility. Her death leaves a void in the better society of Buf falo, which will not soon be filled—not to speak of the narrower circle to which it is irreparable. Executive Session of the Senate. WASHINGTON, March 30, '53. Directly the Senate met to day, Mr. Seward sa.;d:—l wish to make a motion, which I hope will receive the favorable consideration of the Senate. Intelligence has been received here of the death of Mrs. Fillmore, the wife of Millard Fillmore, late President of the United States. She died this morning, and as a mark of respect to her memory, I move the Senate do now ad journ. The motion was unanimously agreed to, and the Senate ajourned.

Have von the Rheumatism'l This is a question which we frequently hear asked, and as often ns we hear it answered in the affirmative, we hear some cure related which has been affect- ed by Dr. J. W. Cooper's Vegetable Rheumatic Drops, prepared by C. P. Hewes: and far as we can remember, it is the only medicine which we have ever known to affect a complete and perma nent cure of this disease. This medicine is taken internally, which is different from the common of Rheumatic Medicines, which consist of Linn , ments, and afford but temporary relief. The genuine Rheumatic Drops are .for sale by 'l'. Read & Son, Huntingdon; G. W. Breehman; Me- Veytown; and J. M. Belford, Milliintown, who are agetits for the proprietor, C. P. Hewes. a r We have frequently heard the celebrated German Bitters, sold by Or. C. M. Jackson, 120 Arch street Philtulelphia, spoken of in terms of the highest commendation, and wo honestly be lieve that it is one of the hest medicines advertised for the complaints for which it is recommended. They are pleasant to the taste, and can be taken under any circumstances by the most delicats stomach. The press far and wide, have united in commending this 4,llllMb:a remedy for dyspepsia, debility, &e.; and such dre the healing effects of this panacea, that we hope it may be introduced into every family where dyspepsia bus, or is like ly to have, a victim. 4. Feb. 2, 1853. DIED. Very suddenly, near Shade Gap, on Saturday evening, the 19th ult., Mr. JA?ES N. STiTT, aged 95 yearn. The deceased was a man of unimpeachable character, and exemplary habits; and was for many years, an earnest and devoted member of the Presbyterian Clime!). Although summoned to meet his Jude, with but a few minutes warn. ing, he gave evidence; by an honest and upright walk through life, antl' also by a stria Christian deportment, that he had, not neglected' to make his peace with God, hilt had his lamp trimmed, and was in readiness to enter in at the "coming of the bride-groom." A bereaved widow and a large fussily of children have been left eo'nfourn the irreparable loss of en affectionate husband and a kind slid indulgent parent. The neighborhood' in which he lived deplores him as one of its most esteemed and respectable citizens. Each day, as it lengthened ont the thread of Ilia existence and enlarged the bounds of his acquaintance, encircled him, with new friends and admirers. In short, " None knew bins but to love, None named him but to praise." This sudden removal of one of the beloved ones of our earthly Zion, is another manifestation of the uncertainty of life, and the true middies of death, and also whispers solemnly into the ears of every ono, the admonition of Scripture—" Be ye also ready, for in an hour when ye think not, the Son of man cometh."

Though so young she had lived long enough to win, by her artless and pleasing manners, the hearts of all who knew her, diligent, and unusu ally successful in her studies, attentive in her glass, and well prepared in her lessons in Sabbath School, she gavg to all her teachers good promise 01 "yalualife attainments in knowledge. But he whii,Walketh lb, darkness, bath touched her, and all these, fair, prospects and bright hopes are sad • steely shroUded. A few weeks since she saw her sister taken away to the silent chamber among the dust. Though her lamp went out amid tumultu ous tossings of disease, yet we hope the Saviour, in whom we trust, has taken her to himself, laying her by the side of her sister. We serk the solace hope alone affords, and look beyond the limits of the grave, and humbly trust that they both are resting from theft• pain in a world where there is no more sorrow, and God wipes the tears from every eye.
