Fire! Fire ! Firj.
On Friday last, the large brick building
familiarly known as "the Academy," was
discovered to be on fire. The engines
were promptly brought to the spot, and
although the wind was blowing very fierce
ly, our citizens succeeded in extinguish
ing the flames before they had done much
damage. The fire originated from sparks
from a neighboring chimney.
We cannot here refrain from giving a
pa'sing notice to certain individuals who
are in the habit of (dimpling fires, but who
never, to use a homely phrase, do the
first hand stir." They may be classed
under the head of !actin me, They will
stand like the publican--"ufar off," ner

their maiden moustache. Such effeminate
creatures do not deserve the name of men,
and we move, that at the next fire, they

Our articles in relation to Sancho Panza
of the Huntingdon Globe, have had the
effect which we presumed they would have,
of materially ruffling the tx . rnriCr,lerhil
co-partners, and been the means of bring
ing out against us the entiie cd(torial.
league of which, Sancho is.. the' willing
tool. Thu whole amount of eporial in
the last Globe consists in vile billingsgate
and low blackguardism in 'answer to a few
simple statements we made relative to the
inconsistent course which has marked the
present publisher of the Globe. We had
not expected that Sancho was so entirely
deprived of every principle which should
characterize a gentleman, but we now
find we have been giving him more credit
than he deserves. We merely intend at
present to give a hasty glance at the accu
sations made against our humble self, by
the last number of the Globe, and answer
them—where an answer is requested..
We are made to deliver ourselves in op
position to Know-Nothingism by a para.
graph which the Globe parades in its col
umns, and which it unblushingly asserts
was the real sentiments of our heart.—
We deny this charge, and pass with con
tempt the pitiable wretch who could thus,
with an etfrontry worthy a poltroon, place
such constructions on language as to make
it entirely different from the real sense
that language would convey. But we
I can pardon this silly attempt of the Globe
to produce an ill.feeling toward us, know
ing woll that a " drowning man will catch
at straws," and " misery loves company."
Oh ! Sancho, Sancho, if truth wa s
e an in
gredient indispensable with man's exis
tence, long long ago, poor brainless jacka
nape you would have served ns a loam for
the culture of turnips, or pint spa."—
We as much detest your vices as we pity
your ignorance.
Amongst other charges, this poor, self
conceited driveller of the Globe informs
its readers, that " the editor of the Jour
nal is circulating a report that he 'Sancho)
is a Roman Catholic." As *egards this
statement we can most assuredly say, that
the publisher of the Globe in giving ut
terance to it knowingly and unjustifiably
has published a wilful, deliberate and un
mittigated falsehood. That we have ever
lisped his name in connection with any
religious denomination we most positively
deny. But since ho would thus create a
sympathy in the minds of the Catholic
portion of the community, as n martyr for
its principles, we will hear lend him a
helping hand, and give him an orporiuni.
ty of showing how much 801pathy lie
deserves. The editors of the Globe must
either be Roman Catholics or hypocrites.
—they either assert what they know to be
untrue, or else, have, under the cloak of
rotes autism which they wear the deadly
leoprosy of Jesuitism, whit wh:c:i they
are secretly endeavoring to infect our
community.. Can this be doubted ?—we
defy the Globe man to prove to the con
trary. Wu do not make this assertion
without sufficient proof to corroborate our
word. Would the editor of the Globe
now possess his three hundred dollar of.
Lice of Post Master, if he wits not "under
under the bark," a Jesuit? Would one
of the editors of the Globe made use of
the expression he did some few days ago,
—that "he would sooner vote for an emis
sary of Me Pope than for an .dinctican,"
—if he was not nearly and dearly united
to Jesuitism ?—nor is this all, if the Globe,
desires it, we will furnish further proofs
of its secret alliance to Jesuitism, and the
hypocritical manner in which it is endeav
oring to serve Popery, by an open denun
ciation of the great principles of liberty—
such as freedom of speech and of action
—which American citizens love, which
they aro bound to cherish, and which they
will die for,—the exertions of Pius and
his minions in this count ry to the contra.
ry, notwithstanding.
Again, the Globe endeavors to cast op-
probrium upon us b senseless and inde
cent language—last tage fit only to be ut
tered within the brothels and hell-holes
which abound in our eastern,states,—and
which time has not met erased from
many minds. But again, we pardon our
Sancho. "fie true we may not have been
rearo4 among the hills which delighted
the authors of " Scots wa' ha'," " Camp
bell o' the Kirk," or "John .4nderson, my •
Jo,'Thut all the boasted wisdom of this
trio cannot restrain us from giving vent to
the sincere sentiment of our minds.
In another paragraph, the Globe in
forms us that—« neither arc we a hypo.
critical PROFESSOR in any other
church." We can believe him, in that
particular, as regards hypocrisy, because
the discipline of his church teaches him
that. If the Globe would int;ruatP that
all professors of religion are hypocrites,
we leave him to his own thinking,--but
place the verdict in the hands of the
" searcher of all hearts." But we have
more charity for the Globe than to believe
it means this, although such is its len
! guage. We will therelore take the ex
pression wholly to outsell as we presume
the intention of the Globe was that we
should do so, when it says," can they face
• an honest community and say the same 1"
As regards our hypocrisy we do not choose
to take Sancho for our judge, it would ap
pear too much like " Satin reproving sin."
We acknowledge, we, in common with
all, tall short of our duty, but we endeavor
to do what is right. Can the publisher of
the say the same'
We may not•havo reached the standard
of perfection, but we can now, with a'
clear conscience, look back upon' our past
life and say With an honest pride, thot.-sve
have never yet disgraced our manhood by
midnight drunken revels, rowdyism or dis
graceful broiliel .scenes. , • Can the editors
of the Globe look an honest community,
in the ftMe and say the same ?"
Again, the Globe endeavors to smooth
over the course it took ia relation to the
United States Senatorship, but its feeble
en•.:_avor shows most palpably the utter
disregard it has for the truth, and how
readily it inserts a prevarication where no
other means is left for escape. It now
would have its readers to believe that the
reason it supported Simon Cameron for
United States Senator, was because there
was so possible chance fur any old line
Democrat." Now any person who will
take the trouble of examining the files of
the Globe for the past year, or long before
the late election of U. S. Senator, was ag
itated, will find that Sancho has always
been a pliant tool of the Is iends of Cam
eron, and early endeavored to impress up•
on the Locofoco party the importance of
his selection to that high and responsible
office,—and openly intimated that he
(Cameros) was his first and last choice.—
Now we ask the thinking and honest por
tion of the Locofoco party if such an in
consistent, abominable and truckling rep
robate is worthy the support of any party?
—Jesuitism excepted. If the Locofoco
party wishes to preserve its name in this
county we would suggest an inrnediate
action in this matter, not because we have,
any love for the party, but because we de
spise to see imposition practiced upon a
community. 1
We usk pardon of our readers for har
ing consumed much of our space in no.
ticing the balderdash contained in the
Globe, but since the editors have kindly
promised " to keep Them (the Journal)
awake for sonic time," all we have to say is
" lay on Macduff;
And d—d be hint that first cries, Hold, enough.
Samuel L. Glasgow.
Most of our readers will undoubtedly
retnemberan individual of the above name,
who was the alledged editor of this paper
before we purchased it. He is the same
personage who acted as , a conferee, for
White, some time since, and who received
the sum of one thousand•dollars for decei
ving his constituents and openly perjuring
himself. IThat was our amusement on
opening a little eight by ten published in
the lower end of this county, by a gentle
man of the °Dunks rd" persuasion, (whose
motto is "Truth our object. Justice our
Standard. Heaven our aim,") to find a
whole column of its matter occupied by
this GieTeie in
ism and obscene phrases, (no doubt learnt
by him in some of his haunts of vice and
immorality in' the eastern cities) towards
us. Now we wish to trespess upon the
patience of our readers for a short time to
explain the nation for this behavior of
Glasgow, and in so doing, publish a few
facts, which we presume he has no very
great inclination to bear.
It hen we purchased the Journalestah
livinnent from Glasgow, (or. rather from
his wife) a positive agreement was made
between us, and which was published in
the paper, that we had the collection of
all subscriptiotx due the Journal office up
to the time we took charge of the same—
this much Glasgow admits in his commu
nication-1101V what we wish to show is
this, that SAMUEL L. GLASGOW, in the com
munication which lie publishes in the
aforesaid pamphlet, has wilfully perjured
himself. Does any one desire the proof
—here it is.

March 25, 1854."
This bill was sent to the above persons
by Glasgow, after we had purchased the
office, being one month after he had sold.
Now, Glasgow comes boldly out and call
his Maker to witness that he "is innocent."
Such is the character of this individual, he
can come unblushingly forward and "call his
God to witness that lie is innocent of the
charge we made against hirn of collecting
money due us." Nor is this all, we have
now in olir possession various other docu•
mews, which space will not permit us to
publish this week, which will clearly prove
to every honest man, to every unprejudi
ced mind that if justice was meted out,
this self-same Glasgow, would not now be
enjoying "free and unrestrained liberty,"
but would be incarcerated within the walls
which ho'd villains and perjurers. Res
pect for his respectable connexions alone
restrains us from now giving to the world
those facts; but if Glasgow continues his
slanderous blackguardism, friends will not
prevent us front giving to the world, his
guilty acts,
Now we have but one more statement
to make, and we are done for this time.—
Glasgow asserts that he came into our of
fice in company with one Joseph Rickets,
"genteelly and peaceably," &c. Now we
pronounce this a down-right falsehood.—
He came into our sanctum, with an ac
complice, armed with a revolver, used lan
guage, that could not but shock the most
depraved minds; and it was only the dia
-1 grace of quarrelling with so low and aban
doned a creature that restrained us from
meting out to him his just 'deserts and
kicking him into the Street.
In conclusion, when we asserted that
Samuel L. Glasgow, endeavored to pro.
cure money due us we merely stated the
. truth, and:if required, will prove it to the
entlitil . atjsfaction of a Court and Jury.—:

the existence of a conspiracy to murder the
unfortunate man. We most sincerely hope
that the propetrators of the foul outrage may
be brought to justice. Mayor Wood has off

An interesting case, and one which is ma
king considerable noise here has lately been
decided in one of the courts of this city.
It appears that Don Francisco Hernandez
of Saracen, Cuba, who brought with hiss a
letter from a brother of Don Francisco, who
lived in New York. This brother—Don Elias
—wrote, requesting hint to use his influence in
the protection and assistance of Mr. Felix, in
the project he had of introducing arms, and
promoting an insurrection in that district
against thd Spanish government. Don Fran
cisco, not being in favor of revolutionary move
ments, gave notice to the Spanish authorities
of this plot, and partly from fear of the anger
of his brother's friend in Harem, and partly
induced by business, he went to Havana and
took refuge its the castle of Cabana. After
remaining there some time he concluded to
send Isis family to Spain, and for that purpose
sent rm his' ou, who was being educated at
the Hudson River Institute,at Cleverer's, New
York. His brother, however, learning this, by
sumo means prevented young Hernandez from

frustrating this plan, Carnobeli was to use the
utmost seetacy, and was supplied with letters,
&c., to prove to young Hernandez his blend.
Carnobeli, with the assistance of the Span
ish Consul is this city, succeeded in persuading
the young man to accompany them, and the
party had got as far us New York, and just ta•
ken the steamer for Havana, when the Uncle,
learning of the departure of young Hernandez,
came on board, and finally bad them all urros•

MUTH or TUC EMPCHOII, Silellol.l9.
We are ali astounded—perfectly struck dumb
and silent. Tho Emperor Nicholas is dead !
The news has made us forget everyteing else ;
this is the grent topic of conversation. As
you pass along the streets, you hear such Irv.
merits of conversation as these N icholas—ap•
oplexity —assassinated —dead Sevastopcl—
and the like.
The steamer Africa arrived ou Thursday the
15th, bringing the nevi of the Emperor's
death. It also brings four days later news
from Europe. Sevastopol seems to continue
to hold out against its besiegers. A few so,
tics have taken place, but nothing of itnpor.
Lance has been done. It is said that the Em•
peror Napoleon is intending to take a trip to
Sevastopol to try to hasten matters.
We think that the death of Nicholas must
put a stop to all hopes of pence, at least for the
present. His son, who is about
years of age, 'will be tiro Emperor of Russia.
ft can hardly be expected that be will be tail•
ling to commence his reign by atfeeting u tree,
ty which at least one half of his subjects wiil
consider disgraceful. his father, a man near.
ly sixty years of age, would be fur more likely
to make concessions than a young and 'ambi
tious Prince who has his own renown to carve
not. Of course the Emperor's death will
throw the country into confusion.
The Stew ligislators have been spending it
week in New York visiting the, public institu•
times of the city. They had very unplerisant
weather for their spree, and, on the whole,
from their various speeches, they seem to
have enjoyed their visit very much. On Thurs.
day night they held a banquet at the Astor
House. Plates were Mid for two hundred and
fifty persons. Speeches were made toasts de.
livered, and, in short, everybody bad a good
The excitement in regard to the Poole mur
der remains unabated. The evidence that Da
her had not left the brig "losabella Jewett,"
as he was supposed to have done, has kept the
public feeling on the stretch. The coroner's
investigation is still progressing. A print of
William Poole has been issued, while under.
neath are his last words, .t.lf I die I die a true
American." •
This was prbably one of the foulest murders
ever committed in New York; but we do not
like to see a man, who, when alive, was not all
at all noticed, when he dies, worshipped, merely
because he has hoes murdered. We respect
all means which aro node for hunting up the
murder, but we do not think that it is necessa
ry for so much adoration of the "fancy . ' man.
If more attention were to be given to the fam
ily of Poole, and less to himself, we thil.k it
would be much better for all parties. A clip
per vessel is about being derpatched after the
"Issabella Jewett" to arrest Baker, but he has
probably got on board some other vessel, and
is by this time safe. Although :35,000 reward
has been offered for his apprehension, we much
fear that ho will escape.
A eurioutiscene occurred at the Academy
of Music n few nights ago. It seems that the
opera in Loris di Lamermoer, was being per
formed. They had just got the second act,
when a young gentleman, slightly elevated—
probably intosicated with the music—step
ped front a private boa upon the stage, in
spite of the efforts of restraining friends. lie
paused a moment, and then lifting his hands
to impress silence, proceeded to a display of
his vocal Timers. Whether from the ember
rastnents of n first appearance on the stage, or
for other reasons, his voice was decidedly thick
and he seemed to have quite forgotten the
words. In the midst of his performance, he
suddenly seized by some one, and taken behind
scenes. This was truly an inglorious end to
his first and probably last appearance on the
operatic stage.
There is somo talk of having the city per.
chase the Crystal Palace, to be fitted up as n
public market. It is also proposed to convert
it into a public mucous,. The building can be
purchased fur $20,000, about onc•third of the
original cost.

For the Huntingdon Journal.
March 17, 1855,
, .
Mn. Entroa:—One would suppose by the
course of the Huntingdon Globe, that its Edi
tor was either a High Priest of the Catholic
Church or iu high pay. In several of its pre
vious numbers it devotes a considerable por
tion of its editorial to the abuse of the Ameri•
can Organization and copies an article from a
Jesuit paper, which says the order opposes all
that is Republican in principle, pure in morals,
and holy in religion. We suppose he means
that intolerant and blood stained Harlot the
Roman Catholic Church, whose intolerance has
been marked with blood is every land where
her Priests have been permitted to set up their
Idols. As the matter has become one of gen
eral intmest and of political importance we
do not choose to stand indifferent and hear
Foreigners or their hired minions denouncing
native born citizens as traitors, to Clod and
their country, merely because they do not choose
to let Catholic Priests interfere in their dear
bought rights. We have neither time nor the
advantage of an extensive library, but with
what we have, we will prove that the Catholic
religion is at war with every principle of civil
and religious liberty, and unity we not add hu
manity. Will the Globe man show that it is
not. When he does, we will meet him. We
hava been accustomed to see for years past the
combined efforts of the entire Catholic Press
as fully devoted to politics as religion, in all ca.
ses professing to act. under the sanction and
direction of their Hierarchy, rallying their rev,
dors in favor of particular measures or men,
and bringing the entire force of the Foreign
Catholic influence to bear in the same diree•
When Clay and Frelinghuyson were candi
dates, it is notorious that the very fact that Fre
liughuysen was a prominent and influential
Protestant, a,tirely eogngol in the religious
movements of the age, arrayed the Fureign
Catholic vote Of the United States in an almost
unbrokett pbsiAliX against them, afd secured
their defeat. Anti it in. equally well known
that politicians aid demagogues have :implore

and freedom of speech, secured to Americans,
made an allusion offensive. to the sensitive pre
judices of this class of voters, have been pro
scribed and voted unavailable by the politi
cal party to which they happened to belong.—
We remember some years ago a gentleman
made a speech in a Democratic State conven•
tion, in the course of which he bad occasion to
contrast the blessings of liberty, intelligence,
and a pure religious faith, enjoyed in.our own
couutry, with the evils of tyranny, ignorance
.d corruption prevailing in Popish, Pricstmid
en South America and Mexico. And we re
member what should cause the blush of shame
or indignation to mantle the cheeks of every
American, that saute gentleman was then and
there hissed and felled down by Foreign Cat),
olics and the vile spawn of demagogues who
courted their favor, while the chief leaders of
the party, insteud . of nobly vindicating the
rights of free thought and free speech, ,
apologized and censured the gentleman and
