"A WHIG OF 1838."
It is said there is a social vampyre, that hails
you with a kiss, even with the taint of the thir
ty pieces of silver upon its lips, and while giv
ing yon the embrace of friendship, inflicts upon
your honor and your reputation the secret stab,
that taints the life-blood and withers the heart
of the unconscious victim. So, too, there is a
political fiend, that, to subserve his own ends,
would sacrifice the party to which he professes
to belong, end "leave a stain upon its character,
that lime fails to obliterate." A vampyre, that
will even invade the sanctuary to take the shape
of those who, with hypocritical eyes raised to-
wards heaven, smite their breasts, and thank
God they "are not as the publicans are."---
While reading sermons with its lips, it is devi
sing in its heart some specious scheme of vil
lainy, and ere the dying tones of the last
prayer have ceased to fall upon the ear, it
rushes out to pour forth the "leprous distil
meat," destined to murder some unolfending,
ono by inches, draining drop by drop the heart's
blood of those whose only crime it is to be pu
rer than itself. Such is the character of "a Whig
of 1838." Without the courage of the "despe
rado," who would meet you with dagger and
pistol, and at least give yon a chance for life in
the deadly struggle, this creature lurks in dark
ness, strikes in whispers, and sends forth its
venom in anonymus letters. And when it can
succeed in causing a heart to bleed at every
pore from the foul slanders that meet it at eve
ry turn in the social world,—when the victim
seeks for pity and finds none—then is the car
nival of this fiend of hell, clothed in the cloak
of christianity I Then is this vampyre happy
in the paradise it has created for itself amid
the ruined altars of the human heart !
To examine at length the tissue of falsehoods
and absurdities, spun out by this fiend without
a heart, who is invulnerable to aught but "black
mail" judiciously administered, would be a
waste of time, and occupy more space than,
under present circumstances, can be spared...—.
We shall merely advert to some of the leading
charges contained in this beautifnl production
—characterized by falsehood and impudence
the most unprecedented, and emanating from a
source, almost unworthy of notice.
It commences by saying that "the Journal
has closed its columns to hundreds of our best
Whigs." This, as the creature who penned it
well knows, is a lie, to serve as an excuse for
himself. We have not refused to publish a
single communication from a subscriber or a
Whig, handed to us during this campaign. We
have not refused the use of our columns, even
to the miserable slanderer, who uses this lan
guage, simply because he never asked us to
publish a communication. Had be done so,
we would undoubtedly have refused, for any
thing from his pen would disgrace the columns
of a decent paper. Not one single instance can
he cite,—not a single man can he produce who
can say we refused to publish anything he had
written. The same charge against us is made
in Wharton's appeal, and by the same author.
It is equally false—we did not even refuse to
publish Wharton's documents.
The next charge is in relation to Aux. M.
Witrre, equally false, and proven to be so in
another part of our paper. The language, al
leged to have been used by the Journal, is
either distorted, or the coinage of his own brain,
and cannot be found on a reference to our files.
County Convention, is enough to disgrace him
in the estimation of all sensible and intelligent
men. That Convention consisted of men as
tar above the author of "Who are Whigs," both
in intellect and character, as he is beneath the
level of a decent man. Those men would no
more have stooped to the low trickery and cor
ruption which he charges upon them, than they
would be associated with hint and his boon
companions—creatures so low in the social cir
cle that they are spurned like a snake whose
touch is loathsome, and whose daily path is
known by the slimy track he leaves behind.—
The manner in which he speaks of cards—his
familiarity with the terms "stocked," "shuffle,"
" col," Ike.,—betray his true character. A
"christian," familiar with all species of gaming,
is certainly an anomoly.
He says further, that "the Journal assails
the purify of the party,"—and attempts to sub
stantiate it by giving an extract from our paper
saying that "the feelings of the honest portion
of the party were outraged in 1838—that a
stain was left upon the character of the party
that time has failed to obliterate." If this is
assailing the purity of the party, then we plead
guilty to the charge. We did use this language,
and we are only sorry it is too true. Such po
litical vampyres as the author of this commu
nication,—such Whigs of 1838, DID leave a
stain upcin the character of our party, at the
mention of which every true Whig must blush.
It is a matter of deep regret, but we are not an
swerable for their misdeeds. They are a blem
ish to any party with which they unite them
selves, and the W/iig party is well clear of
them. There were no tears shed when they
This much then for "a Whig of 1838." The
Journal, throughout the whole campaign, and
before it, has been honest, open, and frank.--
We challenge proof to the contrary. If nny
thing can be found in its columns inconsistent
with the principles, measures, or policy of the
Whig party, we will publicly make the acknowl
edgement. Before the Convention we said
nothing about any candidate, we let every one
have au open field and a fair fight. After the
nominations were made we supported them,
nod because there are one or two men on the
ticket to whom the renegades of this town have
a personal dislike, they are using every effort
to defeat them, and injure us. They hesitate
at nothing to accomplish their purpose ; lies
and slander are their familiar weapons. But
their object is known to the people, and will be
defeated at the ballot-box.
"The Horns of a Dilemma."
The last Standard attempts to show that
James Maguire is "rampantly" in favor of the
"Maine Liquor Law," and publishes a Comm,,.
nication on the subject which he says was
"written by him for a Huntingdon paper, be
fore the election." To show to what ridiculous
extremities the Wharton men are driven, not
only was no such Communication ever publish
ed in a Huntingdon paper, but James Maguire
never saw it, and never knew nothing about it.
Yet this is their plan of operations. They
hesitate at nothing,—not even to attribute to men
what they have never written or heard of—they
go still farther, and give men's declarations to
themselves, with whom they are not on speak
The Communication in question, no matter
what may be its sentiments, was never written
by Mr. Maguire, What then was the object of
the Standard, is their attempting to fasten it
upon him ?
The Humble Instrument's "Appeal."
When the leader of the disorganizers issued
his widely circulated "call," we thought it
reached the acme of all absurdities, that it
could not have been aurpasscd. But it seems
we were mistaken, for we have another produc
tion before us, from the same author, entitled
"An Appeal to the Whigs," that leaves the
"call" far in the back-ground. Truly may it
be said of this prolific writer, that "none but
himself can be his parallel."
This appeal, though, like the "call," not
written by the individual that signs it, is yet
adopted by him, and as his sentiment we must
examine its contents. He commences, then,
by saying that he is "unconscious, in his legis
lative course, of having committed any wrong,
for which he merited a public abandonment by
the party." For once at least, he can have the
credit of speaking what is true. How could a
man be conscious of committing wrong, when
the "still small voice" has long ago been
crushed and silenced by guilt and crime? He
has no conscience, if he bad he could not
have made the assertion.
He says further that "the present aspect of
affairs has been produced by the personal en
mity and hatred of personal foes I" Then a
majority of the members of the late County
Convention, were his personal foes I If so it
is high time that a man of his disposition
should be removed from a position in which he
can have opportunities to gratify his feelings
of malevolence and hatred at the sacrifice of
the interests of the people. If he has so many
"personal foes," what may we expect at his
hand if he is elected, but schemes for yen
genre, that he will only have too good an op
portunity to carry out?
He alleges that he has been slandered by
the Journal, while its columns have been clos
ed to his reply. Now he knows this is false,
for he never once asked to reply to any of our
charges, simply because he knew they were
true. We have not made a single charge in
our paper, the truth of which Samuel Wharton
dare deny. Serious and galling as they have
been, he has never sought to reply to them.—
With the use of some three or four columns
weekly of the Globe, Standard, and Banner
(which, not being very large, published an ex
tra fur his sole accommodation,) he can not
have the excuse that he had no opportunity.
Nor does he deem them so harmless as he
would wish us to suppose. If lie did he would
have passed them by without notice. Instead
of this however, he deemed it necessary to at
tempt by his superior strength, to suppress the
grave charges brought against him, and which
he well knew were too well substantiated to be
treated with the contempt which, had they
been false, they would only have merited. He
knows well that they are all true, and fur more
that we have kept silent through pity, not for
him, but for
But he winds up by saying that Ile has "no
abuse to heap upon any one." This is decided
ly a finishing touch. After writing a quarter
of a column of abuse of the very worst charac
ter, be cooly tells us he has "no abuse to heap
on any one !" He would be thought a very
pink of christianity—one who never harbors
revenge, but is willing to forgive till his ene
mies. We are exceedingly sorry for his sake
such is not tho fon
with a bad grace from one who would attempt
OlAGlosJbecause he t/toug/it
he was writing against him I "No abuse to
heap upon any one;" why the very walls of the
houses of our town would blush were he to ut

his profane slanders and foul anathemas, Mudd
indiscriminately against all who are opposed
to him I
But his "calls," his "appeals," his "names"
and his epithets, can only gain him notoriety,
and he will discover after next Tuesday, that
popularity is a very different thing. He is
seeking office in the face of a rebuke, almost
without a parallel from the party who placed
him in power, because he betrayed them for a
price. Ms hopes to StI2C,IO 1, against their
wishes, by the aid of the democratic vote, but
he will soon discover he is leaning upon a
"broken reed." The male, and honest
Democrats of this county will not support the
offal and refuse of the Whig party. They are
just as anxious to be honestly and properly re
presented in the Legislative halls of their State,
as are the Whigs, and they will support that
man in whom they can place confidence—by
whom their interests as nix-payers and citizens
will not be betrayed to subserve his own person.
The "humble instrument," then, may as well
"hang his harp upon the willow." He is doom
ed to be disappointed, and all the efforts of
himself and his cmisslries will go fur nought.
Next Tuesday will toll a tale that will cause his
head to hang still lower, than it did on the at
ternoon of the County Convention. Notwith•
standing all his personal abuse we shall then
pray for him—Requic.scat in pare.
WHIGS, AROUSE 1 I
Let every man who claims tho honor of being
a Whig—who loves the party and delights to
see its principles prosper, be up and doing
from this hour until next Tuesday evening.—
See that every man is at the polls and votes
the regular Whig ticket. Be careful that
spurious ones are not placed into the hands of
those who are not acquainted with the designs
of unscrupulous men. See that your neighbor
goes to the election ground early and votes.—
Fight manfully and zealously for the success of
the cause. Let no man stay away from the
polls for trifling reasons, but make it a point to
be there—certain. Don't believe any slander
ous reports about any of the Whig candidates,
for they have all originated with enemies of
the ticket, no matter whether the individuals
who circulate them, be guerilla Whigs, or hos
tile Locofocos. Don't listen to them, but fight
on fur the ticket and you will never regret it.
Stand up for your rights like men, and like
honest, faithful Whigs. Never touch a ticket
of a guerilla candidate or of an independent.—
Be sure you have a full ticket—don't leave
the name of one regular candidate out. Be
men—be Whigs—be freemen—lie stern sup
porters of party organization and regular nom
inations, and the sun of victory will surely
brighten our sky.
A woman has recently been committed to
jail for poisoning her sister! It is said the
circumstances leave but little doubt of her
guilt. 'rite body, was examined yesterday
at MeConnellstown, by a committee of Phy.
sicians. We withhold a further relation of
the facts at present, not wishing to influence
public opinion, against the prisoner.
THE STATE SENATE.
We wish to impress it on the minds of the
Whigs of this county, that if we lose the Sena
tor in this district, that body will very likely
fall into the hands of the locofocos. Now can
it be possible that our Whig friends will not
rally to a man to the support of our nominee?
Will they suffer the State Senate to fall into
hands as corrupt and treacherous as those of
the opposition have proved themselves to be in
the present administration of the affairs of the
people? Will the Whigs, by indifference and
inactivity on their part, allow our boasting en
emies to take our place and rule us as with a
rod of iron ? Shall we not be active, when we
have it in our power to check the tide of co,
rttption in the present locofoco administration?
Do we not feel for the success of those princi
ples for which we have, during so many long
years, faithfully labored, and fought through
battles thick and thin? Does the name of
a Harrison, a Clay, a Taylor, or a Scott, no
longer sound sweetly in our ears? Have all
those fires which burnt so brightly in our bo
soms, during the campaigns of '4o—'44—'4B
and '52, become entirely extinguished? Shall
we lie down, like dogs, and let our enemies
trample ns under foot? And has it come to
this ? Where are all those old and grey-headed
Whip who, in the campaign of '4B, fought side
by side with that illustrious warrior and patriot
who poured out his blood in defence of our
liberties and our country? Does the sound of ,
victory no longer move the blood in their veins?
Have they now lost all feeling for the glorious
success of that party and those principles they
have long so dearly cherished, and for which
they, through so many long years, so zealously
labored? And where are our young Whig
brothers in this campaign? What are they
doing? Like ourself, they are young—and
may live many years to come. Now, is it right
—is it policy—is it wise—for us—we, who are
yet young, to slumber on in our ease while
there is so much to do? Soon .r fathers will
have gone—their bodies in one common grave
with those of a Harrison—a Clay—a Taylor—
a Webster, and many other distinguished lead
ers of the party, will moulder to their mother
dust. We will be left behind to take their pla
ces, and are we now preparing to properly dis
charge the duties that will then devolve on us
RS their successors? Are we daily active, as
Whigs, endeavoring to learn our duty to our
country? We should remember that great res
ponsibilities are already resting on us—that we
have already a very prominent part to play in
the political drama. We trust then, that all
the Whigs—both old and young—will at once
arouse from their lethargy and buckle on the
armor that ensures certain victory.
Mr. Num, the Whig Senatorial nominee,
is worthy the confidence and support of every
member of the party. He was fairly and hon
orably placed in nomination, and in justice,
should linve the entire support of the party.—
We know that slanders of all characters and
qualities have been heaped upon his bend—
that the leaders of the locofoco party and their
presses, have been busily engaged in circula
ting all kinds of libellous and slanderous re
ports about him, ever since he was nominated
by the Conference.
But all this is done for the express purpose
of prejudicing the minds of honest Whigs
against him. They are doing this "-r
-ot making capital 'out of it in favor of Mr.
Cresswell, their candidate for the Senate. To
accomplish their object, Abe locolbcos have
ways resorted to all and any means they could
' possibly invent. They are not scrupulous ns
to what they do in matters of this kind—any
thing to gain the victory. And there area few in
our own party, such ns the author, in politics
and character as the individual, who signed
himself, "A Whig of 1838," in a Communica
tion in the last Globe. This individual has
been well served by the party—he held a re
sponsible office under One. Johnston, and now
he is endeavoring to poison the bosom that
warmed him into life. Whigs, we trust you
will remember him—be is easily known for he
has a mark. He opposed regular nominations
last fall, and is doing the same this full.
We say, then, to all—believe none of these
slanderous reports, because they hove been
raised and circulated by enemies to the ticket,
although a few of them claim to bo Whigs.--
These fame have been controlling you for many
years, and now that you feel disposed to throw
of their yoke, and , net for yourselves, they have
become offended. But we hope you will on
next Tuesday, teach them a lesson, that they
may hereafter act as honest men, and as Whigs.
They are trying to win you to their cause now,
by publishing in the Globe and other papers,
that the Journal has been slandering them.—
They are appealing to your sympathies since
they discover that they can accomplish nothing
by endeavoring to make you believe that there
was a violation in the usages of the party, in
the defeat of Wharton. They are also cottony.
oring to place the Journal in a false position,
when you know what our position has been as
well as they do, because you have been our
readers as well no they have. Now we hope
that all the Whigs in the county will vote fin•
our regular Senatorial nominee—that they will
not allow themselves to be governed by the re.
ports that have been circulated. And that al
though Mr. White may not have been their first
choice, yet we trust they will, in view of the
considerations we above presented, give him
their votes. Whigs, we beseech you, save the
Senate from falling into the hands of corruption
This paper, published in Ebensburg, with
the name of Alex. M. White nailed to its mast
head, is yet endeavoring to secure his defeat by
a course, that can only obtain for it the cen
sure and contempt of all intelligent men.—
What its editors expect to gain by their whole
sale slanders, alleging thnt his nomination
was bought he, we are unable to say. It is
rumored that they were offered "three hundred
subscribers and one thousand dollars in mon
ey" to oppose the regular ticket, and perhaps
it is true. If so it is a full explanation.
Whigs of Huntingdon county, we call on you
to stand firm, and, disregarding the lies and
slanders of our political adversaries and their
purchased allies to battle nobly for the ticket,
and the whole ticket. Mr. White is a good
Whig, an intelligent, and an honest man, one
who would not stoop to the low trickery with
which his unscrupulous enemies charge him.
Stand up for him then, Whigs of Old Hunting
don, and let us not place the Senate in the
hands of our political enemies, by bolting from
the regular ticket.
sir BE AT THE POLLS EARLE
A WORD TO VOTERS.
You are about to exercise one of the highest
prerogatives known to en American citizen—
the right of suffrage right guaranteed to
us by our Constitution, and bought by the
blood of countless heroes. In the exercise of
that right and duty, it becomes you calmly and
considerately to inquire, for whom your vote
shall ho deposited, and what will be the cense•
queues resulting from the act?
You have before you for the office of Assem
bly, two candidates, one regularly nominated
by the whig party, and one a repudiated guer•
illa. For which will you vote JAMES MAGUIRE,
or Samuel Wharton. In the former you have
an hottest man and a good citizen—one against
whose character no charge can be brought.—
A man acknowledged by all, to be competent
and worthy the office. On the other hand you
have a candidate, voluntarily before you, who
has been cast off by the party that nominated
him, having betrayed their confidence, and their
Let us calmly examine the coursed Samuel
Wharton, and see whether he is worthy our
suffrages. He asked the nomination from the
Whig party of this county for one term; and
received it. He went to the Legislature as
our representative. What was his course there?
He had a bill passed, against the wishes of his
constituents, giving a few interested persons
in this town and neighborhood a bridge, at the
cost of the county. He passed another bill,
laying out a road through several townships,
directly contrary to the expressed wishes of
their inhabitants. He refused to notice our
remonstrances. He refused to give certain
pnrts of the county a voice in their Legislative
Halls. He suppressed our petitions. He re
fused to move in the committee on claims with
out being paid—and after all this he came
home and asked for a re-nomination I His
modest request was promptly refused by his
outraged constituents in their County Conven
tion, after he had made every effort within the
power of man to succeed. But not content
with this decision, lie is determined to be a
candidate—and he comes out "on his own
hook," in answer to a call, signed at his own
and his hired instrument's special request. He
answers that call, and insults every member of
the convention who refused tore-nominate him,
by charging them with having "trampled upon
the usages of the party,"—with lending them
selves to "cunning and treachery, bypocrasy
and deception." Will you citizens of Hunting
don County, apart front all considerations of
character, vote for such a man?
Can you, after such a course, place any con
fidence in Samuel Wharton? Can yon believe
his professions, when his every act heretofore,
proves them to be false ? Will you vote for a
man who after failing to buy a nomination,
now seeks by similar means to secure an elec.
tion ? We leave you to answer at the ballot
WHIGS, THINK CALMLY.
You have before you,in this county just now,
a subject which demands your serious consider
ation. It will be for you to decide, on next
Tuesday, whether regular nominations have
any binding influence, or not. You have men
placed before you on the ticket, who were all as
lecitimately nominated as any candidates could
be, and it is tor you to say whether they shall
be elected or not. They were nominated by
delegates to the Convention, of your own
choosing, and now it devolves on you to deter
mine whether the action of these delegates in
Convention shall be sustained or not. We had
nothing personally to do with the formation of
the county ticket—this was a matter of your
own—and now it remains for you to endorse
what you did in Convention, through the ballot
box,or not. We beseech you,pause and reflect !
Let not your personal feelings enter into the
matter, but think calmly and seriously. Let
reason have her legitimate sway in making up
your mind as to how yea shall vote. Retnem
ber that you are a Whig, nod that on your vote
may depend the success or defeat of the ticket
—your vote may, if cast against the regular
nominees, produce consequences of a very too
mentous character. Suppose any part of the
ticket is defeated—what has the party gained?
What have you gained ? Nothing. We trust
then that you will reflect calmly on the matter
before going to the polls. Let each one ask
himself the question—"should I vote the full
Whig ticket?" And if you feel yet for the suc
cess of the party—if you still have any of that
good old Whig patriotism in your bosoms, you
must answer in the qffirinatire—it can't he oth
erwise, for we do think no Whig has nny good
reason this WI for not supporting the whole
ticket. This is the lust time that we will have
an opportunity of calling your attention to the
matter, and we now leave it in your hands, sin
cerely hoping you will act for the general in
terests of the party. We have, as Editor, en
deavored to discharge our duty towards our
party and ourself, as faithfully and as zealously
as we knew how, and if any part of the ticket
is defeated, the fault will not be with us.
ALEX. M, WHITE,
Too much cannot be said to urge the impor
tance of electing this individual to the State
Senate. Now we do hope that Whigs will look at
this matter in the proper light. There is no
reason why every temperance Whig in the
county should not vote fur hint, nod there is no
reason every anti-temperance Whig s,hould not
vote for him, because his position in relation to
the temperance question, is just what all seem
to want. Suppose some temperance Whigs
should vote for Mr. Bell, what will they gain ?
Mr. Bell, even he should be elected, will do no
more than Mr. White is willing to do. Then
why will they throw away their votes, because
Mr. Bell's election is out of the question. And
it is well known that Mr. Bell's nomination
was made only for the purpose of inducing
temperance Whigs to vote for him. The loco
focus expect their party to a man to rally to the
support of Creswell, temperance men and all,
with the full determination if possible to elect
him. Bell's nomination was made fit the
express purpose of deceiving the temperance
and we hope they will look at this mat
ter in the proper light, stud if they do, we can.
not see how they ems cast their votes against Mt.
White. Whig ascendency in the Senate is
a question, we think, that should be consider.
ed paramount, under existing circumstances,
to every other one, and Whigs should vote to
retain this ascendency.
Whigs let us ell Ws PULL TOGETHER,
11%,.. WORK TOGETHER eel Ser. VOTE
TOGETHER, and the reward will be VICTO

The Hollidaysburg Standard.
The locofoco organs of this District, and es•
pecially the Hollidaysburg Standard, have
been repeatedly insinuating that the Hunting.
don conferees in the last Senatorial confer'
ence, were "bribed" by Alex. M. White. In
the last number of that paper the charge is
openly made, and the reasonv(l)givon upon
which it is based. The first is that before we
left home we declared "we would go for Win.
trode, and in no event would we go for White."
To the best of our reccollection we made no
such declaration. We did say that Wintrode
was our choice, and our only choice, but when
wo discovered that it was impossible to secure
his nomination, and that we must relinquish
our hopes, we then consulted as to which of the
remaining candidates .was the best and most
available. From the representations made to
113, we believed Mr. White to be so, and voted
accordingly. This is the whole history of the
transaction, and could not be distorted or mis•
understood by any one, but a man accustomed
to such bargains and sales as are attempted to
be fastened on us.
But further, he asserts that "Mr. King says
he was approached by a Huntingdon Conferee,
who told him he could get sl,ooo—to go for
White." If Mr. King is en honest man, and
we have no reason for believing the contrary,
he will bear us out when we say that he "ap
proached" us with the offer of money, and we
refused to take il. This is the correct state
ment of the case, and if Mr. King has any re
gard for truth, lie will say so.

This much then for the Standard's charges

the task a lighter load of "Hobensack." How
