New Advertisements.
Our friend, Jacob Snyder, has received from
the city one of the largest and most fashionable
assortments of Fall and Winter Clothing that
was ever brought to this place. Also, the very
cheapest. Those wanting any thing in his line
had better call soon, because his customers are
carrying them off very fast.
Call at J. & W. Sextons' Store, if you wish
to purchase very fashionable, cheap, and the
best quality of goods. They have them on
hands, and are disposing of them, too, very
fast. They have a very splendid stock, end
sell at very low prices.
Persons desirous of purchasing good and
substantial articles, would do well by calling at
the "Elephant Corner," where Goods can be
had at exceedingly low rates. Richard is a
clever and accommodating gentleman.
We neglected last week t; call the attention
of the friends of education and the public gen
erally, to the advertisements in another column,
of Milnwood Academy, at Shade Gap, and Shir
leysburg Female Seminary, and Juniata Acad
emy, at Shirleysburg, both in Huntingdon Co.
All three of these Institutions are under the
care of experienced and well qualified teachers.
James Bricker has just returned from the
Eastern Cities with an extensive assortment of
new Goods, which will be sold very cheap.—
Those wishing bargains had better call at friend
William Colon has added 10,000 volumes of
New Books to his former extensive stock, to
which he invites the public. He sells at a
reasonable price, and we recommend those
wanting Books and Stationary, to call at Co-

stir Our esteemed correspondents, "Inde
pendent" and "Truth," from Cromwell and
West townships respectively, must excuse us
for the present for not giving publicity to their
Communications. We care nothing about
what the little piratical sheet says of us and
our paper, because it can't accomplish any
thing—its motives are well understood. We
don't doubt at all that the Whigs generally up
prove the course the Journal pursued in the
late campaign. The best evidence we have of
that, is the overwhelming majority of eleven
hundred and sixty votes, Mr. Maguire received,
over Wharton, in the district, for the Legisla
1119.. We cannot publish any communications,
RO matter on what subject, without having re
ceived the true name of their author. Such as
were sent us last week must be accompanied
by the correct name of their authors, before
they will get any attention at our hands.
VS. We have received two or three copies
NANAu, for the year 1854, which are neatly got
up, and contain, in addition to the necessary
matter in an Almanac, many beautiful and
practical quotations and paragraphs. We can
heartily recommend it to the public.
_ _
gar We have on our table the October num•
her of the School Journal, containing much
matter that would certainly be very useful and
practical to the teacher and the friend of edu•
ifir We have received the November num
bers of Graham and Godey, both excellent
copies. All the ladies in the neighborhood
should be regular subscribers for those Maga
GEN. W. H. lawlx.—The Lewistown Ga
zette suggests the name of Gen. Irwin of that
place, as a suitable person to receive the nomi
uation for Governor next full. The Gen. is a
very clever man—a sound Whig—a "host with
in himself," on the stump, and would run a
mighty vote in this county.
kr Tailing the vote that James L. Gwin re.
ceived in this county for Assembly, to be a
correct expression of Whig numbers at the
late election, it will be perceived that there were
only a few over two hundred locofocos who vo•
ted for Mr. Maguire. And on examination it
will be seen that not more than that number of
Whigs voted for Wharton. We do not believe
be received over two hundred Whig votes in
this county, notwithstanding the unparalleled
exertions that were wade to distract our Comet.
Col. Alex. M. White.
It is with no ordinary feelings of regret, that
we have to record the defeat of Col. White, the
Whig nominee for State Senator in this district.
That ho is a true and faithful Whig—and
would have carried talents and character to
the station, that would have done honor to him.
self and the party, we have no doubt at all.—
But so it is. His defeat was occasioned by the
treachery and disloyally of certain Whigs in
Cambria county, and a disposition on the part
of a portion to support a temperance candidate.
If those Whigs who supported Martin Bell pre.
ferred voting for him merely, without feeling
confident of success, instead of voting for Mr.
White, and thereby insuring a Whig victory,
we have nothing to say, more than we think
they should have preferred the victory.
Now, to show how little Col. White was in
favor with the locofoco leaders, who infest the
pool of corruption along the Portage Road and
State works, on the Allegheny Mountain, (for
every body knows that this charge was made
against him by the Whig paper in Ebensburg
and others,) we will relate a circumstance which
took place a few days before the election, about
a mile East of Ebensbburg, at a certain hotel.
Thos. Maguire, a Mr. Crawford, Jno. Cresswell,
Henderson Moore, and Jno. C. O'Neill, all Lo-
cos, in connection with Robert L. Johnston, E.
Hutchinson, Esqrs., and Albright, one of the
editors of Alleghenian, Whigs, met in private
caucus for the purpose of devising means and
measures to defeat White. And the result of
their deliberations was, as we learn from the
best authority, that the "Alleghenian," the
Whig press at Ebensburg, should have twelve
hundred dollars for opposing White, and se
cretly aiding in the election of Cresswell. This,
it is said, is TRUE.
Now, we ask the Whigs of Huntingdon coun
ty,whether this looks much like Col. White be.
ing in league with certain locofoco State robbers
on the mountain? It does not, and shows con
clusively that the contrary was the case. They
sought his defeat, and secured it, just because
they knew be was bitterly opposed to their
schemes of corruption and robbery. They knew
very well that if they could not defeat him, their
abominable conduct towards the tax-payers of
the Commonwealth would be exposed, and
themselves forever disgraced, in the estimation
of the voters of the State.
And look at the conduct of R. L. Johnston,
E. Hutchinson, and others—men who have
heretofore professed to be Whigs—who, in their
zeal for the cause, have repeatedly said they
alone were the true exponents of Whig men,
measures and principles of Cambria county.—
Yes, they would give such protection to the
Whig party, as wolves give to lambs. Never
can we have any confidence in their Whiggery,
and if any of them should ever happen to he
candidates for office, when this county will be
called on to support them, the Whigs here will
teach them a lesson that they long will remem
ber. We never want to hear from their lips
any more professions of loyally to the Whig
party, after their conduct towards Mr. White,
in the last campaign. They never had any
good reasons for opposing him, though he may
not have been their choice. Whigs in high
places, and especially such as are aspirants to
positions still higher, should be careful how
they act. Yet, notwithstanding all their oppo
sition, combined with that of the entire locofo
co influence on the Portage Road and elsewhere,
Col. White ran a very large vote in Cambria
county, which shows conclusively that he is
popular and has strength among the people.—
No man can honestly doubt this. Look at his
vote in this county, where all kinds of slander
and falsehood were circulated, by his enemies,
to defeat him. Under the circumstances, we
do say, the Whigs here acted nobly towards
him, and they will do itagain. A strong effort
was made to impress the minds of the people,
that the Conferees from this county were bribed
by Col. White to vote for him in the Senatorial
Conference, which, we have no doubt, had a
tendency to influence a few votes in the district
against him. This, as we have repeatedly sta
ted, is false, and was circulated only for the
purpose of injuring his election. If, however,
there are any who still think such was the case,
we challenge them to the moor.
We will take occasion here to state, that as
far as we were personally concerned in the
matter, we acted as we thought best for the in
terests of the Whig party, and it matters very
little to ns what our enemies say to the contra
I ry. --
The Banner.
The "youthful editors" must evidently have
felt the force of the truth of what we said in
the last Journal, respecting their paper, judging
from the language and lone of their would-be
reply in their issue of Saturday last.
We are not disposed to trouble ourself any
more about them or their little sheet, because
they are certainly not worth minding.
If they think they can accomplish any thing
by the course they are now pursuing towards
us and the Journal, they are at liberty to con
tinue just as long as they see proper. No body
But we will remind the boys, that if they be
lieve they are establishing a favorable reputa
tion for themselves and their paper, by their
personal abuse of us, they are very much mis
taken. The people of Huntingdon county are
birds two old to be caught with chaff—they
fully understand their motives in thus acting.
The people also know what kind of "Ban
ner—Extras," they issued a few weeks since—
what kind of an "independent course" their lit
tle sheet has thus far pursued—what course
the Journal has pursued since we have had
hold of it—all these things the people know
perfectly well, and we have no doubt they will
pass correctdgrnent.
It /*ems they still hold the opinion that the
Communication we published, from Birming-
ham, in which a very just reference was made
to their paper, was written at our office. Now,
since the boys appear to be so incredulous and
manifest such great anxiety on the subject, our
foreman may convince them of the fact, if they
will call at the office. But we have already
said more than we intended, and in the lan.
guage of a certain wise man, we give them
over to their own folly. "Ephraim is joined to
his idol—let hilm alone."
Ohio Election,
CINCINNATI, Oct. 14.—The Democrats have,
beyond doubt, carried this State by a verg large
majority. There is no report of the vote upon
the liquor law. The Democratic majorities
are, in Montgomery, 200; Erie, 300; Sandusky,
200; Ottawa, 200. The Freesoilers carry Cuya
hogs, and have 600 majority in Lorain.
ZANESVILLE, Oct. 14.—The Democratic tick-
et is elected in the county of Muskingum by
100 majority. Jewett (Dem.) is elected to the
Senate by a large majority. The Whig majori•
ty iu this county in 1852 was 72t,
The Result in Huntingdon County.
The indications are that the Locofoco State
ticket is elected by very large majorities.
Our candidate for Senator, Mr. White, is de.
feated by Mr. Cresswell, Locofoco, of Blair
county. We are indeed sorry, that such is the
case, and we do think the Whigs did wrong in
not giving Mr. White their united support. In
voting for Bell, the Whigs have gained nothing,
but, on the contrary, have lost a Senator, and
thrown that body into the hands of the enemy.
This we sincerely regret.
Huntingdon county, notwithstanding, acted
nobly in the contest, and has achieved a glori
ous victory. The aggregate vote was small,
but in proportion to the number polled, the
Whigs have retained their usual majority.
The election of Mr. Maguire, under the cir•
cumstances, is one of the most signal and tri-
umphant victories that have been effected in
the State. It can truly be said of the Whigs of
Huntingdon county, that they are loyal to the
principles and usages of their party. What a
noble set are they in Cass, Tod, Penn, Spring
field, Cromwell, Morris, Jackson, Murray's Run,
Birmingham, West, and others 1 All as loyal
and as faithful as their principles are immortal!
And this is right—let Whig principles and reg-
ular nominations be their motto, and victory
will never fail to triumphantly perch upon their
The Successful Ones,
It will be seen, by reference to the table of
returns we publish this week, that the whole
Whig county ticket is elected, except Mr. Chris
ty, who was the regular nominee for Deputy
Surveyor. We regret his defeat very much,
although we expected it. The report that he
was opposing a certain one of the regular can
didates, before the election, received credence,
and caused him to be defeated. Those who are
aspirants to office should never oppose regular
nominations, because it is always remembered,
when they appear before the people as candi
dates. And especially should they not do it,
when they are on the ticket themselves as Mr.
Christy was.

Senator Everett at the Cattle Show.
Among the guests of the New Hampshire
Agricultural Society, at Manchester, last week,
was Hon. Edward Everett. He was well re
ceived, and spoke with his usual beauty and
eloquence. The following is the concluding
passage of his speech, in touching allusion to
the name of that great man, the anniversary of
whose death is so rapidly nearing us:
"And can I speak of the historical legends—
of the industrial resources—of the natural
beauties—of New Hampshire, parent not of
fruits only, but of men—without remembering
the great and good who adorn her annals—her
immortal Stark, who cheered the heart of the
nation at the lowest ebb of despondency, and
led the way at Bennington to the triumphs of
Saratoga—your Sullivan, your Poor, your
Scammel, your Dearborn, your M'Cleary your
Pierce—who, from Bunker Hill to Yorktown,
heard every peal of the trumpet, and breasted
every storm of wail—the long line of your ci
vilians—your Bartletts, your Whipples, your
Langdons, your Gilmans,your Smiths, your Ma
sons, your Woodburys—your men of letters
and divines, your Wheelocks, •your Belnaps,
your Buckminsters, your Abbotts? How, es
pecially, can I forget him, whose decease not
yet a twelvemonth ago filled the whole land
with sorrow, while, in the sublime language of
your fellow citizen, the President of the Uni
ted States, "the great heart of the nation beat
heavily at the portals of his tomb." He was
the offspring of your toil, he and his fathers.—
His infancy was cradled in the hardships of
your frontier settlements, he was taught and
trained in your schools, your academy and
your college. You sent him forth in the pano
ply of his country, and after the labors and the
conflicts of life, you rose up as one man to
welcome him, when, but two years ago, on this
anniversary, he came back, melting with ten
derness and veneration, to revisit his native

It seems that Democratic discord is not con

—Pierce's organ—he threatens to publish some
of Pierce's own letters in self-defence, and to re
pel and expose the falsehoods of the unprinci

of the President. He adds;
"At present, we acquit him of all blame, or
share in the base and shameful warfare that
has been waged against us; for we cannot be
lieve it possible that the man filling the high
office of President of the United States, the
most exalted of human honors, can be guilty of
such a violation of honor and truth—of such
dissimulation and hypocrisy—as to participate
in any way in this villainous attempt to crush
and destroy a man of his own party, who has
from the beginning been his personal and pO.

contributing all in his power to his advance
ment and success would imply. But the time
has come for the exposure of the miscreants
who shelter themselves under his name; and we
intend that they shall be exposed and ourselves
vindicated, and to that end we shall use every
means in our possession, if necessary."
In fact the whole Locofoco family manifests,
just about this time, a most vehement desire to
disregard the admonition—

A Well-merited Tribute.
The Whig party have now in their ranks,
notwithstanding the ravages of death, so fatal
to them in the last few years, several distin
guished statesmen whose fame is national, and
whose talents, acquirements, and experience
entitle them to the most respectful attention
and kindest regards of their political brethren.
Among these we may, without being invidious,
or depreciating in the least, others whose
erett, o t li ga Massachusetts, (r ib s e re
t s u , s nnideVilliaEdward
of Virginia. These gentlemen are both an
honor to their country and their party. As
safe counsellers, there are no men in the Uni
ted States more worthy to be trusted. Highly
educated, and with fine natural abilities, they
entered public life to perform the parts of
statesmen, and not mere party . politicians.—
They have been students ever since—students
of men, of events, of the political history of
their own country, and of the nations abroad.
They are now ripe with the wisdom which
knoweledge and experience give to intellect,
and imbued with the patriotism which springs
from a conviction of the superiority of the in
stitutions of their own land over those of for
eign countries. They have mingled with man
kind at home and abroad, and are now at their
own residences, satisfied that here is their high
est earthly happiness, and the grandest thea
tre for the exertions of the mind of man.
Mr. Rives and Mr. Everett, although cultiva
ed in their intellects, are yet practical, strong
minded men. All their public speeches show
that ornament with them is secondary to sub
stance. The graces of oratory do not detract
from the strength of their arguments. The
Corinthian column is not the less solid and
firm because its proportions are perfect and
its capital crowned with the beauty of art.
We class Mr. Everett and Mr. Rives togeth
er became we think in many traits they are
not dissimilar. Of high characters, of dignifi
ed manners, of conservative but not repressive
views, of diplomatic experience, and of approv
ed judgement, they are alike. They are both
accomplished speakers, polished writers, and
courteous debators. We repent that their par
ty and their country may well he proud of two
such statesmen.—Alexandria Gazette.
From the South Pacific, Australia, &o,
Interesting details of the news from the
South Pacific and Australia, contained in files
brought by the Crescent City, are published in
the New York papers. The most exciting
portion of the intelligence from South America
is that which relates to the serious difficulty
which occurred between the captains of a num
ber of American vessels lying at the Chineha
Islands, and the commandment acting for the
Peruvan government. The aggression of this
official upon the captain and crew of the Deli
ance had excited the deepest indignation
amongst the masters of the other vessels there,
and they promptly sought the protection of the
American Minister at Peru, which was freely
rendered, and with excellent effect, for so far
it is probable that the Peruvian officer will be
removed from his post and brought to trial.—
Despatches relative to this affair have been
sent to Washington for the consideration of the
Cabinet. There is not a single man-of-war be-
longing to the United States at the place, and
Mr. Clay was compelled to charter a special
steamer to take him to the Chinchas.
Our Australian files are to the 19th of July,
and the greater portion of the news is of a very
important character. The popular agitation
to procure the 'unlocking,' as it is termed, of
the lands from the government, was rapidly
progressing. Extensive meetings were held in
order to procure a reduction of the land license
tax, and delegated representatives attended
from all the fruitful "diggins." The speeches
were bold and enthusiastic, and the meeting
at Mclvor digging, held July 12, would appear
to inagnrate a new era of reform which may
eventuate in a social and political revolution
in that country.
Great excitement was caused in Melbourne,
by the Americans proclaiming their intention
of celebrating the Fourth of July in the usual
manner. A very sharp controversy ensued be
tween the government and democratic newspa
pers upon the subject. Van Dieman's Land
reports say that John Mitchell and John Mar
tin, the celebrated Irish lenders, had abscond
ed, and, it was thought, left the colony. A re
ward is offered by government for the arrest of
Mr. Mitchell.
What Will instria Do I
The case of Mr. Costa is peculiar. He is in
the custody of the French Consul, awaiting the
decision of the Governments of the U. States
and Austria, and those Governments are en•
gaged in a correspondence upon the subject.—
On the 24th of August last he was confined in
the French Hospital; Smyrna, and guarded by
an old gray-headed Turk. He was cheerful, in
good health, and felt confident of his ultimate
release. But how is that release to be effected?
Austria recently sent a Protest to the United
States and demanded satisfaction for the con.
duct of Captain Ingraham. The United States
have replied; have refused satisfaction, have
justified the conduct of Captain Ingraham, and
have asked for the release of Costa. Will Aus
tria continue the correspondence, or will she
let the matter drop? And if she should refuse
to deliver up Costa—what then? Our Govern
ment must pursue a firm course, and not per
mit an individual, around whom she has thrown
the protection of her nationality, to remain a
prisoner in a foreign country. It is hardly
probable that Austria will persist, under the
circumstances—and yet she may. Her Gov
ernment bears no love to the United States,
and she would, if she could, annoy and perplex
us. She is, moreover, seconded in her protest
by Russia and Prussia, and this somewhat
strengthens her position. Doubtless our agent
at Vienna is instructed to make every possible
appeal; and should be assisted by the friendly
offices of the Ministers of England and France;
as is likely, he may sueced. The points invol
ved are novel, and there is no telling where this
Costa business may end.—Philadelphia kg.

it was understood that the Koszta affair was to

It was also rumored that France approved of

Some new arrangement, insisted on by Eng

to inform the British and French Ministers
that it was impossible that Austria could as

Austria, touching Turkey.
It was rumored that Russia now demands
the cession of a Turkish province, to pay the
expenses of the occupation of the principalities.
The Russians were at the last accounts still
sending forward detachments of troops towards
the Danube.
The Turks were actively engaged in erecting
fortifications at all points along the coast of the
Black Sea, from Varna onward to the mouth
of the Danube.
It has been already mentioned that the Tile
mans had presented a threatening address to
the Sultan, calling on him to declare war against
the Russians, or to resign. Inquiry has prov

by the circumstances of the Empire.
The. Sultan refused to sign the war declara

was n possibility of a riot. The French and
British Ambassadors therefore sent for assist
ance, to protect the Sultan and the Christian
residents. Four steam frigates, two French
and two British, immediatelypassed the Dar
danelles, and came to anchor before Constan
tinople, where they now remain. The British
vessels were the Niger and Tiger, and the
French, the Corner and Mozedem. They were
all four under command of Rear Admiral Bar
bier Detias. Besides these, the Admiral has
under his orders the British ships Retribution,
Fury, and Caradore, and four French frigates.
The Daily News of the 29th, states that Ad.
miral Dundee has received orders from the
British Admiral to move with the whole Eng
lish fleet from Besike to Constantinople.
The rejection by the Czar of the Turkish
Amendments was known at Constantinople on
the 19th, but the expected crisis did not occur,
and the ministry, at the date of the last letters,
remained without change. The chief of the
Ulemans had apologized for the disrespectful
style of their address, and the Feast of Beriam
had passed over without a breach of the peace.
The Sultan appeared in the procession, and
was not molested. He afterwards presided at
a Cabinet Council, the proceedings of which
did not transpire.
The Sultan was said to be displeased with
the Foreign Ministers for bringing their fleets
to Constantinople. He considered it unneces.
