The "Leal" of the Globe,
The literary hyena is an artful animal, and
would be quite an acquisition to Burnum's
collection. As a critic he takes all the license
of the wet. We asked him to define his word
LEAL and he refers us to Noah Webster's
definition. Now that was cunning. We knew
as well us he did, Webster's definition, on the
authority of .1 a m iesort, and therefore did not ask
far that, but the Globe's definition. lu Scot
tish (a language we slid net think an Anteri•
can preferred to the pure English,) leak means
faithful, true. Thu word true would take up
no more room than lea!, "The land of the
leak is the place .of the faithful, Heaven.”—
ThiM the literary hyena was telling his learned
readers, in the Scottish dialect, that the "faith
ful, true - -"the Ileaven"—had been
assassinated, battered, burglar Ell, ravished
and murdered by the bungling typesetters in
the Journrl ollice! Vile wretches! This is
us clear as mud.
The above affecting circumstance has given
occasion ta the following beautiful and pathetic
stanzas from our Imp, to whom we have given

James Maguire—The Tricks of his Ens.
miss—The Duty of tits Whigs.
A !also rumor• to the effect that Juries Ma
guire, the nil , nominee for a seat in the
Legislature, intends todeeline the nomination,
has been industriously circulated through the
county. This rumor is unfair and cowardly
as it is false. Mr. Maguire has no intention to
leave the field, but intends to bear aloft the
Whig banner to triumph or to the noble defeat.
But, by whom, and tbr what end, is this re
port circulated? There is a cabal of 11•hlgs
in this borough, forming the nucleus of Know
Nothingisin of the county, who, tailing in their
oft repeated attempts to "rule or ruin" the
Whig party of this county, bare at. last, turned
in with the new set of disorgunimrs who base
not inappropriately taken the name of Know
Nothings, with a hope that they nuty at length
succeed with the "ruin" part of their motto.—
These 'men opposed the nomination of Mr.
Maguire—they exerted all their influence and
cunning to defeat leis nomination—bat wen ,
unsuccessful. Had they been loyal Whigs, its
they pretended to he, they would have bowed
in submission to the will of the majority of the
'tarty. But, instead of thus bowing, they re•
belled, and aided by a few designing locolbeos
of the same borough, they called another Con
vention, and under the specious name of '•iu
depeu:lenta" nominated John Scutt, Esti., in
the hope of defeating James Maguire. This,
however, still does not satisfy the cabal who
cling to the skirts of the Whig party. Having
become the head men of the Know Nothings,
they clainted one of their own society for As
sembly, and urged George Leas in that Con
vention as J. S Stewart, Esq., had been orgcti
in the Whig Convention, but without success;
and the disappointment of the Know Nothing
interest which appears to be pulling, all the
wires, is one cause why the "Independent"
ticket was a still-horn afikir so tau• as the nom
illation of Assembly was concerned. These
enemies of Mr. Maguire, becoming desperate
by their double defeat, have circulated the re
port flint he intends to Make till inglorious
retreat from the field. This is their,last resort
to defeat him, and in but is paving of the way
fin• a new matt. who will, if announced as a
candidate at all be termed a "volnuteer," or
the "people's candidate" or some other pope
tar slap trap name, just Ito John Scott, Esq., is
called an "Independent" Candidate. Anything
to hoodwink the voters and obtain office by
false pretences.

and of this district to he on theirguard. Stand

nothing to make, but every thing to loose by
any other course. Why should pen throw away

My, This is the same man who was urged by
the Know Nothings in the Convention that

John W. Matters' Esq. Slandered.

not honest. This like the rumor of Mr. Ma
guiru's deolination is a base jiibrienlion—a slab
in the dark. No man's character honesty,
in Huntingdon county, is &inn- than that of
Mr. Matter.- The slander no denht originated

wt:ling to sell themselves and their principles
thus blindly into the hands of their ancient
Pntlcrali,st enemies? We trust not.

S. Mott to be the Know Nothing candidate for

Jot close their columns against all assaults

uur:er the control of Whigs, it would nut he
very likely that they would thus exert then,

itself; a triumphant vindication of the loft,
nuns lidschootl charged against the Whigs in
the above en tract, and shows that Locofecoism
has quite as much connection with, and influ
ence in moulding its operations, as have the
Roman Catholics in Office.
The frequent elevation of Roman Catholics
(ace by the so called "Democracy" shows
how strongly they sympathize with that partic
ular class, and demonstrates conclusively the
bargain and sale that exists between the Dem.
ocratie party and the Jesuits. James Camp
bell, a Jesuit, is Postmaster fleneral. Taney.
a Roman Catholic, is Chief Justice of the Uni
ted States,
Guthrie, Secretary of the Treas.
ry, and M'Clelland, Sect: Lary of the Interior,
are said to be Roman Catholics. The Lazaret.
to Physician at Philadelphia, and the Flourin•
specter at Pittsburg, appointed by Gov. Bigler,
are both Homan Catholics. A large proportion
of the Postmasters in the Union are Roma.
Catholics. The Presidents of all the Demo .
erotic State Ceimations held in Pennsylvania
since the election of Doe. Bigler, bane been
Roman Catholics. A Wilkesbarre puller pub
lishes the names of a number of Postmasters in
that county, all liotuim Catholics; and the
Democratic Convention nominated Thomas
Collins, a Roman Catholic, tar Register. Did
all this happen by mere accident? Does it
nut bear upon its face the evidence of corrupt
bargaining with the Roman Catholic Jesuits. to
secure the influence of the Priests in favor of
the Democratic parte ? Those demagogues

Democracy vo. Know Nothings.
The Democracy, for the purpose of securing
the Catholic vote, arc jest now exhibiting,
where it snits their purpose, relentless hostility
to such of their employees, as are suspected of
being attached to any of the secret American
organizations. They recently dismissed about
a dozen pf the American hnndS in the Phila
delphia Mint, and supplied their places with
foreign Irish Catholics, and below we give an
instance of their proscription, under the imine
dime eye of President Pierce. It' report speaks
true, this same Democratic party is just now
supporting at least one member of the proseri.
bed order on the State ticket, and two to four
candidates on nearly every county ticket in the
Commonwealth; and three of their orators at
the recent mass meeting in Philadelphia are
said to have been .members in good standing.—
'All things to all men,' is the doctrine of these
tricksters, and success is Pennsylvania by any
111C11118,-their creed. The voters of the old
Keystone, will "make a note on't."

a clerk in the office of the Jljutant General,
had been dismissed by Jefferson Davis, on the
groan,' that he ups a Know Nothing, and had.
voted tier the Know Nothing candidate for May
or at — Washington- This is a new and bold
tyranny ! As the New York Hach/ says, "the
only charge that has been seriously made
agaitist the Know Nothings was on account of
tileir unconstitutional proscription to a large
class of our citizens who had the misfortune to
be born abroad, and had they merely attempted

pursuing a precisely similar caurse ; the only
difference between it and the Know Nothings
being that while they proscribe foreigners, Mr.

Pattern Officers.
Ou• Luca.° State °dicers seem to think
that the only duties their Mikes require of
theta is to bleed the taxpayers. They attend
very little indeed to their legitimate duties. A
Harrisburg paper thus Imams one of them:
The Surveyor General.
This officer, has not been visible in Harris
burg for some months, and nothing is known
as to his exact whereabouts. The question 13
repeatedly asked, '•where is 13rawley ?" and
echo answers, "where?' , From the time of his
re-election up to the present hour, he has to•
tally neglected his official duties. It is rumor•
etl, too, that in Mt. lirawley's absence rascally
outrages have been perpetrated by interlopers
who have beeti admitted to the office and given
free access to the private papers and
ments. if the rumors in circulation be true,
the Surveyor General's office is little less than
a swiadthig shop, anti scores of lamd•holders in
the State have been ruined by the rasealities
perpetrated there, whether by and with the ad
vice and consent of the bleed or the Depart.
ment, remains to beseen. Mr. Brawley haying
abandoned all personal supervision of the of
lice, justice to the State requires that he should
resign and give the people an opportunity of
electing a limn who will give his attention to
the office, and keep out interlopers and swind
lers. We shall ream• to this subject again, and
then "let the galled jades wince."
The Newspaper.

the useruklessons, and wity sayings ut the news

deprived of it a rew weeks, and then asked to
put ant estimate upon it. Will he say that two
ur three dollars are too much. No, au—he
will esteem it one of his greatest treasures, and
value it accordingly.
We were led to these reflections the other
