a eon of Patrick Kelly of this place, aged about
nine years, being sent to carry his father's

The Glorious Magnanimity
The Journal of last week has a leader
which is a curiosity in its way. It is not only
murder, but burgling, assassination and rope
upon the LEAL subjects of her BritanieMajes•
ty Queen Victoria. Witness the following.
"Men who woo capable o f knowing the wish
es of Me people," and 'We stilt support those
good old conservative prinriples that HAS al
ways supported the ship of Stak.
The editor of the Globe is a literary Hyena!
He is not accounted a miolity man behind a
pen—was never accused of being a gentleman
or a scholar—but a full grown "animal" at
garbling language and seizing upon typograph
ical errors and the blunders of stupid type set
ters, and he is himself "of the number of those."
At this he is expert and assiduous, like a foil
grown pig at rooting "small potatoes" out of
the dirt. The above paragraph gives strung
evidence of this propensity.
Our paper is not free from errors—but on the
whole we think it not worse than our neighbors !
We had been sick for several weeks past, and
unable to attend to our business as closely as
if our health had been better. Added to this
affliction, we had another equally grievous, in
having a Locofoco managing our type, press
and paper. Being a graduate of the Globe of
fice, his Alma Mater is entitled to all the credit
of the typography of the Journal from the time
it came into our hands up to the day we dissol
ved our connection with him. Another of our
hands, hailing from the `•Standing Stone" office
was equally or more industrious in operating
against us. We put up, with the impudence and
ividelity of this youth until forbearance ceased
to be a virtue, and then also discharged hits
from our service. And now we expect to get
along better—and we trust they will try to do
better if they ever get employment again, and
always remember that it is dishonest and dis
honorable to take pay for working for another
with their hands, and working against his inte
rest with all their mind, and heart and tongue !
This being our situation then, and our paper
of the Gth inst. being issued without our seeing
the proof sheet, containing the arrticle so des•
tractive to Queen ViCtoria's “LEAL" subjects;
and the locofoco graduate of the Globe playing
editor himself, and saying editorially, "The ed
itor is not yet FIT for duty"—the Globe enjoys
its garbling propensity at our expense; but it
will not break us up.
The first idea that ocurs to us, on the seeing
the Globe's magnanimous paragraph, was, that
a man who undertakes to correct the errors of
another, ,could see well to it that he commits
no similar error in so doing. Will the Globe
please to define its word "LEAL ? Is it sy
nonymous with either of these words—real—
local—or legal; and of what gender—male—
FEMALE—or neuter, for really it is difficult to
ascertain what sort of subjects of her British
Majesty Queen Victoria have been burglarEL),
assassinated, RAVISHED and murdered by the
rascally hands in the Journal Office.
Our readers will please excuse us for occu
pying so large a space wills so small a subject.
Our ir.tention was merely to show the Globe
that some things can be dote 33 well as others
—and to teach our late eniployees that hon
esty is the best of policy.
The Mongrel Party,
It is generally remarked that the mongrel
ticket which has been concocted by Major
Campbell and Major Anderson, and adopted by
the mixed spirits of the Convention of the hth
inst., has fallen as flat as a flounder, It meets
with no favor any where except with its authors
and with the Globe; and that paper, speaking
the sentiments of the above named political
hacks, says of this ticket it is "the very best that
could have been made." This is not at all
strange. John P. Anderson must have John
Scott on the ticket for Assembly. and all is right,
no matter how the rest of the ticket is made up;
and Thos. P. Campbell must have hi; brother on
for Prothonotary, caring as little cur the fate
of Scott as Anderson can care about the remain
der of the ticket. So both having succeeded,
both are well pleased; and the Globe breathing
only in the atmosphere of Campbell and An.
demon, imagines they are "the people."
The knowing ones allege that Major Camp
bell has the best of the bargain. His candidate,
his brother, has the nomination for a county
office, and has not to run the gautilet through
the Whig camp of Blair county. Ile is a Whig
or has been a Whig, and his vanity prompts hint
to believe that he can get Whig votes: he is on
a Locofoco ticket and the Major is the com
mander in chief for the time being, of that party
in this county, and the Major's bumps of self
esteem assures him that the Locofocos, for hi s
sake, will vote for his brother: and moreover,
both count largely on the votes of a mysterious
order of beings who transact their business with
closed doors and darkened windows; and if
they were not mistaken in their hosts, his suc
cess would be certain. But in their eagerness
for the price they overshot the mark.
Such appears to be Maj Campbell's part of the
bargain, while on the other side Maj. Anderson
has the candidate for Assembly—a distinct of
fice—and Scott can at best but get the Locofo
co votes, he being a Locofoco and on a Locofo
ca ticket, and that too in a district composed of
two counties, in each of which the Whigs have
prevailing majorities ; and last, though not least,
the aforesaid commander in chief will afford no
material aid to Scott, but apply all his force to
the support of his brother. And is the event of
success (not fairly a supposable case) Major
Campbell would get the monopoly of the Pro.
thonotary's office for three years as he has had
the Register's &c for six, while Anderson (rather
a poor diplomatist) would only get the services
of Scott to promote his speculations for one
But the rank and file murmur and refute to
ratify this treaty, and feel indisposed to go into a
contest under these; and they have just and good
ground of complaint ; for the claims of other
candidates, urged by their friends, could not be,
and were not, considered by the members of the
Convention who were brought to the Court
House and there locked op for an hour or two to
ballot for Scott and Campbell, and divide the rest
of the ticket as they pleased, esteeming that a
great privilege in these days of "Independents"
and “Know Nothings." The principle is oh.
jected to as wrung—the candidates are opposed
as men chosen for special purposes—home of
them the refuse of the Whig Convention, and
well .served by the Whig party 13 by gone
times, and still feeding ut the V ..ig crib.—
And altogether there is too much of a mixture
—enough to sicken any man or party—no
matter how “independent"—for it is a mixture
of rampant Locofocos, traitors, Whigs and
Know Nothings. The Convention, the ticket
and the party are alike in this respect—a bet
rogenions mass of corruption and discordant
, materials, from which arises a miasma which
and pure men cannot breath with safety
to themselves. The Independent party is a
thing DO uncomely that no one can admire it•
and it has prepared and presented to the pub'
lie a mixture so nauseous (stinking) that no
man of proper taste, be he Whig or Democrat,
can swallow it. Its effects upon the mind and
conscience is like Croton oil upon the bowels
of a buzzard. Hence it is discarded t and the
PEOPLE (not Majors Campbell Fuld Ander

Things to Be Remembered.
Free Democrats, remember, that in Ws late
speech at McConnelstown Gov. Bigl e r said,
that "ho had defended the compromise meas
ures of 1850, and lie would defeat, the Nebr..
ka bill, which was founded upon the same great
republican principle of self government."—
That Governor Bigler advocated and signed a
bill granting the use of our Prisons for the con
finement of fugitive slaves; that he recommen
ded an act permitting masters to carry their
slaves through Pennsylvania; that he pardoned i
Alberti the notorious kidnapper; that his offi
cial Journals in Philadelphia and Harrisburg
are strongly in favor of the Nebraska• Kansas
infamy; and that he has repeatedly said to lead
ing Democrats in Harrisburg, that he approved
of the principles of the measure.
Nebraska Democrats, remember, that on the
day of his renomination, Speaker Coast heard
Governor Bigler say, "Gentlemen, if the Dem
ocratic convention pass resolutions in favor of
the Nebraska bill. it must nominate another
'candidate, for I will not indorse and run upon
such a platform."
Regular Democrats, reinemher, that when a
Senator Governor Bigler voted against the can
didates nominated by the Democratic caucus,
for State Treasurer and State Printert—and
that lie appointed James Campbell Attorney
General, after his rejection by the Democracy
of Pennsylvania. lu these lie spit upon and
trampled under hi, .1, disciplinn and de
eisiens of his par, y, his own example
absolves regain, from all obligation
to vote for him.

Bigler previous to his ei,ction in 1851 promi•

I • • the friends of Cass and Buchanan, so
that the influence or his position should be
thrown in favor of either; yet with a panic per.
tidy, us soon as he woo elected, he gave all his
influence in favor J. Buchanan, and long before
his inauguration causal George R. Barrett to
be appointed delegate from Clearfield and in
structed for Buchanan; in consequence of
which Pennsylvania went fur Buchanan, which
occasioned the defeat of General Cass, made
Franklin Pierce President, and resulted in the
violent proscription of every Cass democrat in
Aati,lesuit Democrats, remember, that Gov.
cruor Bigler was the means of placing James
Campbell at the head of the Post Office lle
parttnent ; that he has appointed several or
the same faith to important offices; and that
I he or his particular friends have selected Cad).
I°tics to preside over all the Democratic State
Conventions, since he was elected Governor.
Prohibitory Denwera to, remember, that the
two or three hundred thousand petitioners who
have yearly importuned the Legislature for a
Prohibitory law, have never been noticed in
Governor Bigler's annual messages; that he
retains the Eager Beer bill in his pocket , that
he will nut promise to sign a law the exact pro
visions of which he bas not seen; and that his
letter to the Prohibitory State Convention was
Layer Beer and Liquor selling De nocrals,
remember, that Governor Bigler ha, a ',lien a
letter to Dr. John Patrick, pledging lionseir tu
sign any constitutional Prohibitory Lai, that
the Legislature may pass; and that he ha: al
ready signed three Lager Beer bills, for Ches
ter, Clarion and a part of 'nowt counties.

Taxpayers, remember, that the expenses of

Governor Bigler's administration, nearly doub

Justice-loving Democrats, remember, that in
1852, Governor Bigler signed a bill granting
an absolute and unconditional release, of the
right of resumption by the State, of the corpo

Pennsylvania, to the Delaware and Hudson
Canal Company, whose members and Mock.

Mr. Darragh said he understood his task to

Judge Pollock, after gracefully alluding to
his former visit to this city twenty years ago,
and 'to the many ehan,,,, wrought within that
time, referred to his owe position as a candi
date as one which he had not sought, but had
not felt at liberty to decline. He alluded to

Judge Pollock then proceeded to dwell at
much length upon the Nebraska bill and the
questions arising out of it. He sketeliell the
course of the founders of the government in
preventing the extension of slavery by passing
the ordinanee of 1787, the beneficent effects of
which are inealettlable. He deplored the de•
parture from the policy of that onlinntieed
which commeneed in the acquisition of Lottisi•
ann. in 1803, in the admission of Missouri as
a Slave Stele, in recognizing slavery smith of
:IR ‘let. 30 minutes. in the annexation of Texas,
and iu the villattons compromise of 1830. He
drew a vivid picture of the evils of slavery. the
existence of which he deplored. and proceeded
to consider the bearing of the Nebraska bill
upon the extension of the system. The bill
was attempted to be thrust. down our throats
upon the rediculous plea of popular sovereign.
tv I" He was the friend of " popular FIOVM ,
eignty;" but the principle of the Nebraska
' bill was very mockery. It set popular tower•
eignty at litter defiance, and instead of giving
the people the right to legislate upon the sub•
jest of slavery as they please, it, actually and
really prevents them from prohibiting or nb
ishing it. It was a simple scheme for the ex•
tension of slavery under a very flimsy '
and as sorb it deserved all the condetnnali,m
that ran be heaped upon it. Judge Po

ence to the present commotions in Europe,
which he trusted would eventuate in the down
fall of oppression and tyranny there. and be
followed legitimately here by the bestowment
of liberty upon every human being existing
within the bounds of our glorious Union.
Judge Pollock retired amid the lout:plaudits
of the vast concourse before him. He was
followed by Monton McMichael, Esq., of Phila
delphia, who delivered a most eloquent speech
on the aspects of the slavery question, which
we regret we have not the room now to sketch.

The attendance throughout the meeting was
remarkably large. It was an enthusiastic out

token of the deep interest taken by the masses

Governor Bigler and Prohibition.
We see it announced that in sense of his
eeehea at the North, particularly in strong
an peranee localities. Cor. Bigler defined his
,:tion on the question of Prohibition to the
islimction of litany Temperance men." If
be true, we have only to say that " many
the temperance teen" are very easily satiA.
d. It is an easy matter for Gov. Bigler to
say that he would sign any constitutional law
that the Legislature might pass ; but our
friends should remember that the Governor
has nerer,on any occasion, admitted the
ditutionality 11' a Prohibitory law. On the
contrary, he holds the opinion that while the
Legislature have the power to control and regn•
lute the manufacture rind sale of spirituous
liquors, a lame of total prohibition is unconsti
tutional! In view of this fact, therefore, tem
perance men may rest assured that no law of
prohibition such ns the friends of the measure
desire, can or will receive Gov. Bigler's sanc
tion. The people may approve it by a large
popular vote, and elect a Legislature favorable
to the measure, bet in the event of Gov. Rig
lees reelection, it would certainly be defeated
by the interposition of the Executive veto, on
the ground of unconstitutionality. He has
not, will not, and dare not say that he believes
such a prohibitory law as the temperance men
demand, •to he unconstitutional! Let this
question be put to his Excellency, and see how
artfully he will "ihxlge" it I To those temper.
ance men who have been imposed upon by the
private letters and assurances, and public
speeches of Gov. Bigler at the North, we have
only to say that here and in Philadelphia,
Reading, Pottsville, Lancaster and other lager
hoer localities, he is only supported as the
"lager beer candidate," in consideration of his
promised veto of the lager beer bill. The
question is, will temperance men co-operate
with the lager beer sellers in the election of
a man who, while he is hostile to Prohibi
tion, resorts to deception and fraud to secure
the votes of friends of the measure ? Gover
nor Bigler's most zealous adherents are to be
found in the rum shops and lager beer saloons,
and his reelection would be heralded all over
the Union as a defeat of Prohib:tiou I if
temperance men would prevent such a con
summation, the only way to do it effectually,
is to support a 1111111 for Governor who believes
in the amstibitionality of a Prohibitory law,
and who steeds pledged to sign such a

their sale. The Pittsburg Post, the special or•

says:—"We have hitherto opposed the sale of

we are just as much pleased that the sale is de.

been to have seen the bill for the sale defeated
for want of voters."
Not content with chuckling over the frustra

that the State shall now proceed to build a rail

Want to See that Private Letter.
The Berko County Democratic Press, edited
by Col. pyres, formerly a Representative is the
Legislature. speaks thus plainly about that
toperuuce letter of Gov. Bigler that Rev. John
ushers and Dr. John Patrick are currying
ain their breeches pockets. The Demo.
of "old Burks" don't want to be humbeg-

Al define his position unequivocally one
or the other. The Press says:
•• The Governor's fi•ieneG county hare

made a confinement at the Rev. John Chain.
hers, who is the life of the liquor law party, and
who declares himself a personal and political
friend of Gov. Bigler. It would therefore be
but simple justice on his part to publish the
letter, and allow the Governor's friends to see
it. We can assure Gov. Bigler's friends other
places, that there are many Democrats in Berks
county who wish to 800 letter before they ad
vance.further, and who will judge Gov. Bigler
by his own merits, and not by what the fanatic
C . hanibers wishes to say of his own future acts
and intentions. Neither will they be misled by
such an editorial on Muir of gr. Chambers
as the Gazelle puts tburth. They wish to know

friend and tidluw•student, EDWARD A. \Vann.
licsolved, That by his removal we have sus
tabled the loss of one, who, by his generous
and honorable bearing, gentlemanly demeanor,
friendly conduct, virtuous habits and amiable
disposition, had endeared himself to 118 as a
class-mate and companion.
Raolved, That from our association with the
decerised during his connection with Coliege,
we feel a saddened pleasure in thin being able
to tender our sympathies and condolence to the
family and friends in this their melancholy be
Resoteed, That the dispensation, which has
struck down so unexpecledly, one who was iu
the enjoyment of robust health and gave prom.
ise of a vigorous and, noble manhood. calls on
us to feel the extreme uncertainty of life, and
in the days of youthful hope, to remember the
Creator tied Redeemer to whom he had conse
crated himself in earlier rears. •
Resolved, That a copy ofthese
be sent to the bereaved thinily and friends and
that they he forwarded for publication, in the

As soon as Mr. Douglas ascended the stand a
tremendious noise was made, which entirely
drowned his voice. His friends made earnest
efforts to restore quiet, but in vain; after sever•

about half past 10 o'clock Mr. Douglas was
'eutnpelled to leave the stand. There was

We should think all classes now ought to
vote for Bigler—sine.: he is in favor of all
sides of every question. In the first place, his
organ at Harrisburg declares hint opposed
to the Prohibitory law, and his letter to the
Prohibitory Convention leads to the same COl,
elusion. Next the Rev. John Chambers as
sures the Temperance men that his friend Big.
ler will sign a constitutional Prohibtor Law.
Now he vetoes a bill requiring retailers of malt
liquors from the Court. And in March and
April last he signed two bills of a precisely
similar character, applying only to the county
of Chester, and parts of the county of Tioga.
Thus favouring local laws and opposing gener•
al ones for the same object. Did ever a Gov
ernor involve himself in such a maze of incon•
siatencies and contradictions?
But of what importance is it, what he does
now? The people are thoroughly disgusted
with his course, and are waiting with as much
patience as possible for the 10th of October,
whit they will bury him under such a load of pa
per pellets that he will no more be hearth of.
