"THE NEW PARTY.
Under the above caption, the last Dem
ocratic paper of this borough, devotes a
considerable portion of its apace to a tirade
of abuse of those persons who have em
braced the American Party's principles.
We care not what societies may be formed
in our country, or how numerous they
may become, so long as they do not con
flict with our liberties or come in contact
with our constitution. Indeed, it is a
great, if not a fundamental principle of
our government, to allow to the citizens
of our free and happy land the privilege
of expressing themselves in relation to
whatever subject they may see proper : in
other words, to allow them the liberty pf_
speech. The Globe asserts that "tit
sands"—mark that generosity—"beco .
the willing members of this iniquitous or
der." If thousands of our fellow-citizens
"freely and voluntarily" subscribe to the
doctrines of Know Nothingism, without
any compulsory efforts on the part of any
lone to force them to do it, is it in all con
science any matter to the Huntingdon
Globe, or any other prying, peering, Ro-
I mish newspaper? We believe that our
fellow-citizens have a right to form any
society they may deem proper, if it does
not conflict with our governmental ar
rangements, and that without the consent
of foreigners, Catholics, Popes, Archbish
ops, Jesuits or the tools of any of the
I above named abominations. Now will
I the Globe permit us to attempt to answer
lits objections to the "New Party" and its
First.—Do you object on account of se
crecy ? Why then does the editor of the
Globe encourage secret organizations "
Why then does he uphold the principles
of a politico-religious party, as secret and
deadly in its purposes, actions and designs,
as secrecy can be made ? A party, which
but wants the tine to effect the complete
overthrow of our civil and religious insti
tutions, or prostitute them to the same base
level with those of the ruined countries,
where the contaminating and demoralizing
doctrines of papacy are preached and sus
tained. Our answer to this objection
would be—to overcome popery requires
that it should be fought with its own weap
ons, and one of the most powerful weapons
used by Roman Catholicism, is—accreey.
Or, is it because it would exclude for
eigners from the offices of our country ?
Is it just that we should, after clothing the
beggar, the pauper, the convict, or the
adventurer, and after having done every
thing for such characters that humanity
or Christianity teaches us to do, would it
be justice to our country to elevate them
to those stations which should only be fill
ed by those who are at heatt and soul the
lovers of the doctrines they would ex
pound to others ? Common Sense, will
answer no. Foreigners can never become
fully Americanized. Their proclivities are
for the land of their birth. Hence, they
cannot become impartial republicans; and
cannot—for which we cannot consistently
blame theta—become wholly, truly, sin
cerely and devotedly American in princi
Perhaps our neighbor objects to the
"New Party" on account of its hostility
to Catholicism. If such be the case, we
deplore his judgment. We had here
tofore not a word to say against Roman
Catholicism as a religion, but opposed it
solely on account of its political character
or tendencies. We done this, because
we considered it in a political point of
view as antagonistic to that portion of our
constitution which forbids the unity of
church and state, and, consequently per
nicious. But, since the late high-handed
and outrages proceedings of the Grand
Council of Bishops, &c., at Rome, under
the sanction and by order of the Pope—
the avowed head of the Catholic Church
over the world—by which, the doctrine
of the Immaculate Conception is announced
to the Christian world as the leading prin
ciple of Catholicism, hereafter, we deem
it the duty of every true believer in the
first commandment .of Almighty God, to
discountenance and war against the so
called rellgi'on itself. The doctrine now
held by Catholics, is that the Virgin Mau
should receive equal if not greater praise
than the Son of God ! This is the doc
trine of the so called Immaculate Concep•
tion. Is it a wholesome one ? Is it one
you us an American Protestant can con
, sistently with your profession permit to
gain a foot hold on this fair land, conse
crated by the blood of patriots, worshipers
of the true God? Can you, consistently
with the duty you owe to that God and
Country remain inactive, and by that in
activity lend encouragement and assistance
to the promulgators of this outrage upon
reason ? Yttr discountenance infidelity
and what is the religion of those who pro
fess a belief in the Immaculate eonception
but infidelity idolatry and superstition?
You believe in God—the Trinity—and yet
seek to discountenance the very movement
which reason and justice tell you is for the
removal of every vintage of false worship
which exists in our midst. We doubt
your sincerity—yea, we have no faith in
your profession if you can refuse to co
operate with those who we verily believe
have for their sole object the destruction
of Bable Rome, whose cup of iniquity is
now running over.
• Already we do hear following in the
footsteps of this American Protestant
Movement, the joyous shout, that "Baby
the gr ,- -at is falko, i fahou." Lo
"THAT INTELLECTUAL EUNUCH.'' '
If we mny judge of matter by the mind,
we cannot . or need not ask why so many
iudi: ideals are their own heirs. The Eu
nuch of the Glebe, because his efforts
answer our statements have proven com
plete failures, endeavors to cast opprobrium
upon a gentleman of this borough, in no
way connected with the public press, and
who is thus debarred the privilege of an
swering his insinuations. This is not on
ly ungentlemanly but it is cowardly con
duct. Therefore, to this scribbling, self
sold, soul hired, second Iscariot, we will
only confer a passing notice. It will no
doubt be recollected that the editor of the
Globe had kindly given notice that he in
„tended to keep us in employment for some
time to come. By this expression, we
presume, the editor intended to convey
the idea that we were to be entirely "kilt”
by his powerful leaders. But his tune has
somewhat changed in " these latter days,"
and now, he shows an evident disposition
to " cave in," " acknowledge the corn,"
and " gub it up," as a bad job. Be now
endeavors to flee from the snares which
his ignorance and folly have placed around
him, and which threaten most assuredly to
" slick him up." Alack ! alas ! poor Bil k

The laurels won by ancient bards, critics
or reviewers, fade into utter insignificance
and lose their beauty or worth contrasted
with the chaplet of glory, which Billy's
editorial career promises to place upon his
brow. Oh the worth, the depth, and the
glory of the Immaculate Conceptiona
beauty of the Globe. Will not some one
.hold him, for if 'he still continues his
The babe unborn thy dread intent may rue:
God help thee' silly one) thy readers too."
In the last Globe the editor accuses us
of denouncing "some of our best citizens,
in a vile and uncalled for manner"--This
is simply; untrue. We never have and
never will say, a single word of disrespect
publically of any of our citizens,—and
further, we will never wlack an indl
victual who has not an opportunity of an
-BUnring us en the . same manner we attack
him. God forbid that we should in our
present disagreement with the Globe,
"Despatch a courier to a wizard's grave
And fight with honest men to shield a knave."
But, when we are attacked by individu
als whose names are veiled from the pub
lic sight, and who cowardly refuse to use
the weapons of honesty and truth, could
we be blamed or held responsible if we
would give these conquerors of common
sense the reward due their iniquitous and
villinous behaviour ?
The Globe hos embraced the doctrine
of those who do not fear to lie because it
seems a sharper hit, and do not shrink
from blasphemy because it may appear
smart. Thu weekly leader of the Globe,
remind us very much of smooth, garnish
ed monuments of mental agony, or the
petrifactions of a plodding brain. Olit,
wonder-working Lewis! Hail conjurer
of ten thousand visions. Health to thee,
great Mogul. But indeed we cannot but
think that this race which you have began
in your fully, will end in your disgrace.—
You must know that ere we have finished
and completed the worlc of reformation we
have began upon you, you must feel the
lush that virtue must apply.
We do not seek neither would we wish
to enter into controversy with every
"Monthly scribbler of some low lampoon,"
who is bought to furbish falsehood for ev
ery eight by-tenor in our country. We
do, however, sincerely desire that ere the
editor of the Globe shall be gathered to
his grandmothers he shall have shared in
- the promise of one who has said, some
where, that he would
"Make bad men better, or at least ashamed.'
In conclusion, as we have most un-
doubtedly proven that the editor of the
Globe, or his minions, are made of "pen-
etrable stuff;" having torn the veil away
which hid them from the public gaze, we
can only say
" Cheer on the pack."
The editor of the Globe verily ehotild talk
of training. He physically, a libel on
mankind, intellectually a eunuch; with
just enough of learning to misquote. Out
upon such graceless, senseless and con
temptible whelpism. We would advise
Billy to never venture beyond a "pull"
for some "doggery," or "cobbling" at three
line items, or tinkering at copper bottomed
worms for Baccus.

Much no we dislike newspaper contro

men (much more with men of manifestly
(no principle at all,) we nevertheless do
not feel disposed to pass in entire silence
and with that contempt which the above
named gentleman's communication, in the
last Shirleysburg Herald, deserves. It is
our opinion, and we have the concurrence
of the'most honorable and respectable cit

for the above reason to disclose; but with
respect to his assertions and appeals to

though it does bring to light the odious

the man. Besides the case already pub

just what his unholy, and execrable dis•
position may prompt, or ns it respects our
character at any other place, we are nt
his defiance. For the sake of our own
credit, and the expressed wishes of our
most respectable friends, we do not feel
disposed to pay any further attention to the
low, vulgar, contemptible, effusions of S.
Locofocoism going to Pieces.
If anything, in addition to the terrible
defeats that everywhere come upon the
Locofoco party, were wanting to assure
of the utter prostration of that party, it
can be found in their humiliating . nppeuls
for Whig aid. The leaders of that party
always professed to believe that the Whigs
were about the worst class of men any
government or country could produce, and
such terms as traitor, &c., they freely ap
plied to them. Now however, the tune
is changed; the Whigs would be a very
clever set of fellows if they would only
turn in and arrest the flood that is sweep
ing Locolocoism from political existence.
But who is weak enough to suppose that
Whigs are sufficiently verdant to be caught
by these lachrymose appeals? Every
groan of expiring bocofocoism falls upon
Whigs like the most grateful music ; and
the death of that party will twine the lau- .
rel, rather than the cypress around the
patriotic brow of the Whigs of the coun
try. Its grave will draw the spirit of joy
and congratulation, rather than the tear of
pity or sympathy ; for when the "lion and
the lamb can lie down together," then may
the Whigs be willing to shake hands with
their bitter enemy, Locofocoism, and not
The True American's Manual for 1858.
Messrs De Witt & Davenport of New

copy of the Know.Noihing Almanac or

will use their influence in extending the
usefulness of a work published in their
name. We would advise friends of the

Ma. EDITOR:—I do not wish to give you too
windy a letter, but I do wish to let you know
of the perfect simoon we have had here. The
streets, notwithstanding the good sweepings
they have had, are filled with dust. Dust
blows into your eyes, your nose, your mouth,
and your ears, almost making you deaf, dumb,
and blind. You leave your house in the mor•
ning for your office, with fresh linen ; before
you accomplish half the distance, you look like
a respectable ash man• It is useless to try to
keep clean. You have a plenty of real estate
on your hands, but it is not very valuable, as
you cannot get it off. ladies go gasping along
trying in vain to protect themselves from the
interminable dust, by thick, green veils. Gen.
demon's black whiskers, and the hair, coming
below the hat, and fifteen minuets' walk in
Broadway, assume somewhat the appearance
of the wigs of the old English judges. In fact
there is dust above, below, and around.—
Should any one doubt that we were made of
dust, if he were to come here, he would be
convicted that dust would coca become one of
the composite parts of our being,—if this
high wind continues.
The Atlantic arrived on the 27th inst., being
seventeen days on the patussage. Sense people
wonder a little that all of a sudden the Allan.
tic Ocean should have become so stormy, and
the winds so contrary. The steamers are now
about twelve or thirteentlays crossing, whereas
they formerly were but eleven or twelve at
most. 'We have our own private impression
that the non•nppropriation by Congress of the
sum to Mr. Collins, has something to do with
the matter. We think that Mr. Collins, finding
that he has got all sot of the government which
he will be likely to, has concluded to ccono•
mite in coal, and not to take extra poi''s to
arrive a day or so earlier. It makes a vast
difference its the expenses of a trip from Liv.
erpool, wheather they ere a slay longer or shot..
ter. For instance, it will take aeertain amount
of coal to drive the vestal twelve miles an
hour. To drive it thirteen miles an bola, it
requires twice as muchn and PO increeses in
about the same ratio. Besides this the Cunard
line has taken off the passage, so there is no
competition to hasten Mr. Collins' lino along.
We think, therefore, that the average time fur
a passage, will now he about thirteen days.
The Asia has arrived at lining, after a
passage of thirteen days. She does not bring
very important news. The Allies have reopen•
ed their fire on Sevastopol, and it is said with
some success. A manifesto from the new Em.
peror of linssia ta his army Is thought to
evince a warlike demonstration.
Two of our handsomest restaurent ealoons

For the coming session of the Supreme

of a child. The defence of two of these will
be that of insanity. There. will lie the trial of
