gee In our last week's issue we said that
"Mr. S. L. Glasgow, or his attorney, or both of
them, are endeavoring to collect the subscrip

attorney would knowingly be guilty of such as
act, but that he might unconsciously do it by
order of his client.
We have since satisfactorily ascertained that
:his attorney is not guilty:.

Nebraska and Kansas, and opposing the repeal
of the Missouri Compromise.
Mr. Yates is a member of Congress, who was
elected in a District in his State, where the
majority on the other side is generally about
sixteen hundred; showing his great popularity
in his own District; as his argument in Con
gress, on the Nebraska bill, show his great
power of mind. His speech is a lucid, strong
argument in favor of the Missouri Compromise,
which should be read by every man. The
great length of the speech, and want of room
in our paper, prevent us from publishing it.

the generous confidence of those to whom' I

honors may be aspired to as the fit rewards of
well directed ambition, they should not be
sought after or obtained through those means,

Pennsylvania Interest: :n Danger.
We had hoped that ,he failure with
which the vigorotis and rej , oted efforts, during
the first two months of the present session of
Congress, to strike down Pennsylvania inter.
ests, met, whenever a test vote w.is had in the
House of Representatives, had induced those
engaged in theta to abandon all hope ofsuccess,
and that the representatives from this State
might be permitted to rest in security during
the remainder of the session, In this reason
able expectation, we regret to learn, we are
likely to be disappointed. Advises, which have
reached us from various sources at Washing
ton, lead to the conviction, that a powerful or
ganization of outsiders has been formed there,
representing the various Railroad Companies,
whose roads are now in progress of construc
tion, to effect the modification of the present
duties on iron, especially railroad iron, to such
an extent as could not fail, if successful, to
prove disastrous to the industrial interests of
the country, and especially those of Pennsyl
vania. Whether this combination of great and
powerful interests at Washington will be able
to exert enough influence upon Congress to ef
fect the desired object remains yet to be seen;
but we have reason to know those representa
tires from this State aro greatly in danger, and
are fearful that the combination of talent, in
trigue, skill, energy, .perseverance and influ
ence, now concentrated at Washington in be
half of the Railroad Companies of the country,
is so powerful and active as to render success•
ful resistance a Herculean task.
At the commencement of the present session,
several vigorous and determined efforts were
made in the House of Representatives to take
off the duty on railroad iron, but those enga
ged in them met with decided repulses by de
cisive votes of the House. Since then no open
movement has been made, but those who seek
its accomplishment have been actively at work
all over the country in organizing their forces,
and are said to have now a powerful represen
tation of shrewd and active lobby members at
the seat of the Government, who feel confident
that they have so pulled the wires and managed
matters as to ensure success. Their next ef
fort will be in the Senate, and it is now gener
ally understood, we learn, that a move will be
made on the subject at an earlier day in that
We nre not aware what efforts have been or
are being made by our iron manufacturers to
thwart this blow at their immediate interests.
As far as we can learn, however, they are not
represented by any persons at Washington
who make any mark, or calculated to cope with
those engaged by the Railroad interests. Thus
far the protection of their interests have been
wholly confided to the members of Congress.
Such is, at all events, the information we have
from there; and we presume, it is strictly cor
rect. It is but too much the ease with them,
we regret to say, to be so illiberal as to expect
the members who stand up for their interests,
not only to do all they can upon the floor of
Congress for them, but to make themselves
pack horses for their benefit nut of it. This is
not only illiberal but unjust to themselves as
well no to those members who are faithful to
Pennsylvania interests. Let the latter be speed.
ily supported by an outside influence at Wash
ington, which can cope with that of those who
war upon the interests of this State, and there
may be some hope to avert the threatened dan
ger. Let those who are most deeply interested
iu the continuance of the present duties on iron,
organize alike powerful force at Washington,
as they can afford to do in favor of their inter
ests, which now exls's there against them.—
They owe this to themselves and to the Penn
sylvania Delegation. Let us have an outside
Pennsylvania influence at Washington, to aid
and sustain our representatives, as the impor•
trance of the interests assailed demand.—Daily
The Late Election.
It is related of a man who had never visited
Niagara before, that be mistook the spray for
rain, and kept housed for a couple of days, un
willing to have his best clothes spoiled with
the damp. On the third day he enquired of a
boarder at the same hotel if that infernal rain
was ever going to stop. We are somewhat in
the same fix. Are these infernal elections ev
er going to atop?
At our city election we were badly beaten,
and our only consolation is that the vote was a
small one. Why was this so?
In Cincinnati the Bolters and Whigs have
elected most of their ticket. Why was this?
Cleveland, too, lons gone against us, despite
the Dealer. Why is this, Mr. Gray?
Connecticut, according to the telegraph, has
gone Whig. The telegraph gives us all the
particulars that we have.
Why these things? Why these reverses?—
Why defeat where we ought to have victories?
The Democrat adds that these reverses have
been caused by the pro•slavery and native posi•
tion of its party. True as holy writ.-0. S.
The Guilty Tremble.
A member of Congress writes that the receipt
of the election news from New Hampshire sent
terror and fearfulness into the White House
and its occupants. The President was so over
come with it, that he is said to have taken his
bed. He, together with Hibbard, Norris and
Williams, had made almost daily boosts, that,
let other States do what they might, "New
Hampshire would stand by the Administration."
Judge of their mortification when the returns
came announcing in no doubtful language that
New Hampshire spurns the infamous Nebras
ka bill and its authors. "No rogues ever felt
the halter draw" 'wont their necks more agon
izingly than did poor Norris and Hibbard.—
They seemed to walk as though they felt the
ground opening beneath them. Much as I de
test their treachery, and rejoice over the terri
ble rebuke they have received, I can scarcely
refrain from pitying them. Like Cain, their
punishment seems greater than they can bear.
An Affectionate Man.
Everybody has heard of the unfortunate man.
The President seems to be the "affectionate
man." During the pendency of the recent

In addition to the Presidential frank, each

they were three thousand years ago. The

"Her Majesty has given directions for laying

jesty to reflect that no endeavors have been

of Huntingdon, on Tuesday evening last.
The officers of the League having took their
seats, and the Meeting being called to order by
the President, on motion of Prof. Hugh J.
Campbell that n Committee of five be appoint
ed to draft resolutions expressive of the sense
of the meeting, was adopted.
The Chair appointed Prof. H. J. Campbell,
Hon. Jon. McWilliams, Samuel MeVitty, Erg.,
Samuel Wigton, and A. S. Harrison, saidCom
During the absence of the Committee, STE
ru. MtLt.stt, Esq., of Harrisburg having
been introduced to the meeting, in an eloquent
and forcible address, depicted the evils of In
temperance, and the many numerous advan
tages which would result to society from the
enactment of a law prohibiting the licensed
sale of all that intoxicates, as a beverage.
John Scott, A. W. Benedict and John Wil
liamson, Esqrs., severally addressed the meet
ing during its continuance, upon the sense sub
ject, in a number of eloquent and forcible re
marks' The committee reported the following
resolutions, which after being amended and
discussed, were severally adopted:
Resolved, That as friends of the cause of
Temperance, we view its present prospects as
encouraging nnd calling on its supporters for
further exertion, in behalf of the principle and
adoption of a law, prohibiting the sale of all
that intoxicates, as a beverage, and that we
look forward wills confidence to the time, whets
their efforts will be crowned with success, if
they remain true to themselves and their prin
Resolve!, That the right of petition is only
valuable, where its exercise is respected by the
power petitioned, and that when the exercise
of it is diregarded, it is valueless, and to rob
the citizen of its value, is in effect to destroy, if
not to deprive him of the right.
Resolved, That the disregard of our Peti•
tions by the Legislature, demands at our hands
more efficient measures, and such as shall
speak a promise to the ear, which will not be
broken to the heart.
Ilesolved, That success can only be obtained
by carrying the war into the camp of the politi
ctans,—they would not learn and they must be
made to feel.
Resolved, That we heartily approve of the
course of those Senators and Representatives,
who have supported the true principles of a
Prohibitory Liquor Law, under every phase
that they have assumed in the Halls of our Le
gislature' and who by their recorded votes sup
ported the Bill as passed by the Senate.
Resolved, That we fully endorse the provision
of the Senate Bill, submitting the question of
its repeal to a vote of the people, and regard it
as the only efficient and thorough enactment,
yet presented in the Legislature. and as such
the only one which concurs with the wishes
and sentiments of a majority of the friends of
Temperance throughout the State.
Resolved, That we deem it expedient to tip
point a Hypes ntative delegate to represent
this county, in the State Temperance Conven
tion, to be held in Harrisburg on the 7th of
June next, and also three Senatorial Confer
ees to meet with those of Blair and Cambria
Counties, for the purpose of electing a Senato

Mn. EDITOR:—It is hoped the following will

Monday, 3d instant, I bad the pleasure of
witnessing the examination at the ShirleySburg
Female Seminary. The young ladies were all
dressed alike, and presented a fine appearance.'
The classes examined, acquitted themselves
creditably, and displayed at once that they had
been exercising their own minds and had been
guided by an able hand. In many - modern
systems of instruction the pupils are scarcely
taught to think, but the plan prescribed in this
school, I think deserve to be emphatically de.
nominated the putative system.
In the evening the young ladies had their
exhibition, in the Hall of The Academy; which
consisted of exercises in reading, speaking, or
iginal essays and dialogues, accompanied with
appropriate music by the girls. They were all
dressed in white, and adorned with a profusion
of ribbons, lace, and flowers. The Ball had
been previously decorated with beautiful fes
toons and wreaths of laurel and spruce. Sev
eral large globe lamps were suspended from the
ceiling, and a number of small fluid lamps were
placed on the stage. The decorations being so
gorceous and luxuriant, and the light so bril
liant and tastefully arranged, the ladies, in
their beautiful dresses ns they moved upon the
stage, seemed almost like a troop of fairies
sporting in the fabled bowers of Elysium. I
need hardly add that they dazzled the eyes of
every beholder. But what was of more impor
tance, their pieces, which had been admirably
selected, were all perfortned with that native
eloquence, and inimitable grace, only to be
found in the cultivated American lady. This
being the first exhibition of the kind ever wit
nessed in Shirleysburg, it was one of more than
ordinary interest, and reflects great honor on
the accomplished lady who is the principle
teacher in the Seminary.
On Tuesday the examinations commenced
at the Juniata Academy. The students conic
up to the mark and stood the test manfully,
rendering entire satisfaction to their teachers
and the spectators. After the examinations
closed, the public exercises were suspended for
a time, but Wednesday afternoon, vehicles, la
den down with men and women, were seen en
tering the village from all quarters, the streets
began to be thronged, yowls men were seen
wearing an aspect of great importance hurry
ing to and fro, or engaged in earnest conversa
tion; some having a brand, scarf like piece of
blue silk slung across their shoulders, others
with rosettes pinned to their collars; all evinced
that something unusual was expected to take
place. Accordingly, at the ringing of the bell
the Hall of the Academy was crowded to over
flowing. The students had been formed in
procession to meet the young ladies of the
Seminary, and escort them to the Academy,
which having been done, an exhibition came
off in the hall where the female exhibition hind
been held on Mondayevening. The decorations
bad been all left remaining as they were, and
the ladies appeared dressed as they had been
before—a number of them occupying the stage
to assist in the music, which was by a choir of
students and ladies.
A challenge had been given by the Mama
them, Literary Society and was accepted by
the Kalliloginn; the exhibition was therefore a
contest between the two Societies. The pieces
were all performed exceedingly well, but the
Zetamatheans were declared victorious. The
ladies had supplied themselves with hoquets
for the occasion, these they flung at the per
formers in token of their admiration; they were
doubtless a great encouragement to the young
speakers. The contest was pronounced, by
many competent judges, the best exhibition of
the kind they ever witnessed.
I have not yet done full justice to these no
ble Institutions, but knowing how highly brief
ness is prised by editors, I will forbear any fur
ther remarks at present. ZETA.

Mountain Female Seminary.
The Winter term of this Institution has do.
sed with great satisfaction to its many friends.
Evidently, the pupils have made great im
provement of their time and op . portunities, and
no longer is it true, that a finished' education
can not be obtained in our own part of the
State. And if the prospects for the Summer
term shall do for the Seminary what they now
promise, it will show that Parents and Guardi
ans feel thnt the mind will be improved wher
ever and whenever it can be induced to apply
itself to study, and that this can be done near
home ns well as tar off.
Never wore our prospects more flattering
than at this time, never has there been more
encouragement to labor with patience and to
enlarge the plans of the Institution. Hence
additional arrangements are being made for
the comfort nod improvement of such as shall
make this their Alma ntter. Five, and per
lumps six, teachers will be engaged next term,
which number will afford an opportunity of giv
ing such attention to their different departments
as will make. their combined efforts most effi
cient and satisfactory. W.
