A Word or Two,
For some months past several of our
subscribers—principally in tho neighbor
hood of Paradise Furnace and Cassville— '
have complained of not receiving the
Journal till one or live weeks after its
date. The same persons allege that the
Globe never fails to come iohen duel Now
it is a fact which we can establish by the
testimony of our office hands, and other
distinguished evidence—that our paper is
invariably put up in proper form and de.
posited in the Fluntiogdon post office in
'bee for the first moil. Our paper is ne
r issued later than the Globe, but gine
rally some hours earlier l Where, then,
are tve to look for the cause of the irregu
larity complained of ? The answer must
be evident to every thinking mind. And
the culvpable official carelessness, or will
ful rascality it indicates, should, we think,
startle even the better portion of our pope
ridden post office department.
We have only space to add, at this time,
that we have silently borne with this evil
until it has become insufferablu. If it is
not forthwith remedied, we will se ju s •
tics at any sacrifice of time, trouble, and
expense. We are, we think, gifted with
'he spirit of forbearance; but in this case
M-liearance has ceased to be a virtue ; and
the minions of the papal tyranny that rules
the post office department of our country,
shall henceforth find that they cannot sup
press the truth with impunity.
Don't Crow too Much.
No Shanghai chanticleer ever crowed so
Instily, as does the Huntingdon Globe, be
cause the locos did'nt lose "ole Wirginny
never tire." If we were used to giving
advice, we would affectionately pray the
Globo'3 party to use a little discretion in
this matter, else, it may meet the fate of a
rooster of an old gentleman who lived on
the upper Hudson. The Philadelphia
Bun tells the story. He had introduced
into his family of hens a few Shanghais,
including a rooster of formidable dimen
sions, who had "run to legs" considerably
if not more. Hie crow was peculiar, and
easily distinguished from that of the other
cocks. One morning he ha , ' waited to
hear a repetition of the usual summons, af
ter being aroused by the "shrill clarion"
once sounded, but 4, heard it not again.
The other roosters were doing their best,
but the pro eminent chanticleer wits still.
The old gentleman went out to see what
had caused the silence, Ito found the
rooster lying on his back, with both legs
nut of joint. After an examination, he set
he legs, and the Shanghai walked off, and
gave vent to his satisfaction in a lusty crow.
In the very act he dropped as if he had
been shot. He had crowed his legs out a
gain I lie wan kept three or four days,
and then killed. ' , lt was too much trou
ble," said Mr. S., utn set him up every
time he crewed."
The United States and the Allies.
Considerable anxiety is manifested by I
English and French people, relative to the
feelings of the American people, in the
war now going on between them and the
Russians. The English journalist, espe
cially, are peculiarly severe on the Amer
ican nation, for what is termed by them a
"revolting and disgusting partiality." As
regards the opinions or speculations of the
English penny-a-liners, we cannot and will
not say how true they may be. Whether
the inclinations and wishes of the prepon
derating mass of our fellow citizens be for
the Allies or the Russians, we are not, at
least correctly, able to express an opinion.
What the desire of the rriajority of the
journals of the United States is, however,
we know, and can with confidence assert
that the sympathy of the press, hears for
Russia. If English journalists think that
the people of our country are always to
coincide with them, 'or their Queen, they
are terribly mistaken. It is a principle of
Jonathan's to think as he pleases, unmind
ful of the opinions of others, and if to fa
vor Russia, ho sees proper, we do not con
sider it to be "revolting" to the world, or,
in any particular "unnatural." It was
not our intention in beginning this article,
to enter into lengthy exposition of the rea
son which might naturally be expected to
affect the popular sentiment of the United
States, in an adverse manner to the Allies,
but we believe, that we have sufficient and
over-sufficient grounds, to hail the eucces•
ses of Russia, in the present struggle. If
it be a "revolting and inhuman" partiality
we leave it for the decision of uninterest
ed and unbiased judges. If the English
nation complains of us for a lack of feel
ing, and an undue desire for its humiliation
and prostration, we, as a people, have an
equal right to complain of it. The policy
of that country has always been opposition
to America; its manifest desire, to keep the
States within its jurisdiction ;to engender
d:scords and sectional hatreds, by an ag.
gressive and intermeddling policy on this,
ourown continent ; the unfriendly disposi
tion of the English towards us, is appa
rent, and is manifested in trillions manners
alike contemptible and ungrateful. One of
the unscrupulous schemes of the English
people to injure the character and standing
of America in the face of the world, is in
their offensive misrepresentations of the
institutions, the social condition, and the
general chartitter of the civilization of our
country. On the other haul, Russia has
always acted the part of a consistent and I
firm friend towards us. She has been a
friend to us iu the days of our infancy ;
she has refused to join the select circle of
the European power-holders, whose on
ly aim is the overthrow of every republi
can government, and the suppression of
every sentiment of an independent and
anti-tyranical nature. Again, the same
religious opinions and inclinations of the
two countries—America and England, has
been cast into the scale, as an additional
-weighty argument to allure our sympathies
from the Russ, and have them wholly and
entirely centered on that nation of Quix
otic heroes and beef-eaters. However
successfully this argument might once have
been brought to bear against the religious
feelings of our countrymen, it has now,
lost its power. England's religious pro
clivities are no longer for protestantism—
apostasy is doing its work; we hear it, we
see it, and we may feel it. In a religious
view, she no longer holds the proud and
holy trust nations allotted her in the days
of Cromwell, the head and defender of
truu religion, of protestantism—no : she
has fallen, and no longer is entitled to any
of the sympathetic tears which she asks
from us. Apostasy meets no pity in the
hearts of American protestants ; England
has dug her own grave, therein let her for- 1
But to proceed. Another argument to
prove why we should embrace England's
views, and sympathise with her in the
war she unjustifiably commenced against
Russia, we are informed by a loading jour
nal of England, is, if for nothing else,
gratitude I Whilst we acknowledge this
holy principle to be the fairest flower that
springs from the soul, and that the heart
of man knows none more fragrant; whilst
we do not deny that its opponent, Ingrati
tude, is a deadly weed; not only poisonous
in itself, but impregnating the very atmos•
phere in which it grows with fetid vapor,
yet we must think as we do now, even if
we aro counted ungrateful. But let us
consider seriously, what 'gratitude' we in
reality owe that country. Are we her
debtor tor our liberty ? Do we owe her
our eternal thanks for the height we have
attained in prosperity Or should we
acknowledge our gratitude to the "mother
country" our own "flesh and blood," by
siding with her and fighting shoulder to
shoulder, with the minions she once hired
for four-pence a day, to crush out the flume
of miljetisin and liberty, which procured us
thatVa:, veu-born principle—civil and relig
ious liberty? Are we to be grateful for the
blood of our forefathers being sited by the
Hessian bayonets ; the murders and inas
nacres of the settlers of our states, by the
savage foe, hired by "our own flesh and
blood?" If oppression, dislike, envy anti
all-the attributes of a corrupt and evil
designing nation, are things to be grateful
for, why then, we should laud. "merry old
England" to the skies.
The only reason we know uf, why the
English nation began this war with Mus
covy, is, that she wishes to have no nation
of equal power with her in Europe. She
wishes to prevent in Russia the very evil
which has ever characterized her—exten
sion. England is inconsistent. While
she, with impunity, wrests from the unciv
ilized inhabitants of Asia, their lands, and
without the shadow of a title, appropriat
ing country after country to herself, and an
nexing them to her already almost bound
less dominions, without a murmur from
her neighbors, she will not permit it in
others ;i.e. if she can help it. Her med
dling policy, has, i n relation to Russia, for
once placed her in a critical sttuation, and
we flatter ourself with the belief, that the
warfare she has begun in her folly, will e
ventually end in her eternal disgrace.
We have much to say on this question,
which time and space w.ll not permit at
present. But we will moat assuredly al
lude to this subject some other time. For
the present at least, our proclivity is decid
"Gabriel" an Eavesdropper•
We had hoped to remain on terms of
friendship with our neighbors of every re
ligious denomination, when we assumed
the station we now occupy, but it appears,
we are to be the victim of repeated wren
glings, and the subject for the slanderers
back-biters and hypocrites of the commu
nity to exercise their different powers up
on. We have not, to the best of our recol
lection, ever published an article of a local
nature which was calculated to wound the
feelings of any one. We have never, as we
conscientiously believe, struck a foul blow
at an enemy. We have never attacked
an indididual who was debarred the privi
lege of answering us ; we defy the world
to prove to the contrary. This is•known
to all who have ever had dealings with us,
and we defy any person to name a single
instance wherein we have deviated from
There are in the world, individuals of
such peculiar natures, that they aro total•
ly unfitted for society. Men whose minds
are destitute of feeling; whose inclinations
are totally opposed to virtue, honor, truth,
or love ; whose ambition soars no higher
than the love of scandel, and who are on
ly happy in making others miserable. It is
on an individual or two, of this description,
in this community, we wish to confer a pas
sing notice, and if we use harsh language
iu doing so, we beg pardon of our readers,
with a hope that we may not again be com
pelled to do it.
An individual here, in league with the
Globe ; who merely acts what he is bid by
those in whom he trusts his religious con
cerns, and who, we believe, as truly as we
have a God in Heaven, would sacrifice his
country's glory, the liberty of his native
land to please the Anti-christ of Rome ; a
thing, "shapes in sin and brought forth
in iniquity," whose very countenace is in
dicative of villainy, who would have been
a fit accomplice for Guy Punks in his Gun
powder Plot, or who would faithfully have
lit thepile that sent John Rogers "home
to glory," this man is industriously circu
lating reports derogatory to our character.
We know this vampyre, and he can rest
assured too will mark him. We'll mark
him by a 'cross' he has not been used to.
In regard to his insinuation that wo were
eavesdropping, because we seen proper to
visit the place of worship which he attends
we pronounce an unmitigated falsehood,
and declare him, in uttering it, a brazen
faced liar. We presume his prompter, the
Globe, has been his backer in his assertion.
The character of that paper, for truth and
veracity, is not of a standing sufficient to
warrant the approbation of a moral com
munity. We believe it to have a perni•
cious bearing on morality, and is therefore
a fit exponent of an anti-religious denom
ination. It is the follower of the princi
ples of the corrupt politico-religious party
of the day, and would be an open-mouth
ed advocate for the return of the times, in
which, christian roes were
"Butcher'd to lattice a Roman holiday:'
if it durst. But we have not the time nor
inclinations at present, to notice these pit
iable objects any further; we defy their
puny powers, and stand prepared 1 ,, r them
in every attack they dare make.
The Virginia Election•
The official returns of the Virginia elec.
lion, show a clear majority for the Locofo•
co candidate, Wise, of over ten thousand.
This was expected by us, long before the
contest, from facts which came to our
knowledge, and from the sectional clues.
lions which were dragged into the arena,
to make capital for that unscrupulous po
litical huxstor, Wise.
Nobly as have the Whig and American
parties battled in the "Old Dominion" a
gainst their common enemy, and the ene
my of tho•country, Locofocoistn, yet they
can and will do better. The battle just
over, although it may have ended disas
trously to to the Whig Party, has not an
nihilated it. Although the banner of tory
ism may have triumphed over the glorious
principles of the Whig and American par
ties, yet they will eventually conquer. It
must be, and mark us, it will be so.
"Truth crushed to earth, will rise again."
We are defeated, but not conquered: The
enemy may rejoice for a season, but we
will have the final .crow.'

The Russian Heroine.
The following is related in a letter from Ka
miesch, in the Crimea
For some days past nothing has been talked
of but the arrest of a young Russian woman ;
she had been remarked several times before,
an her favorite walk appeared to be in the tren
ches. The rumor circulated for sonic time,
and the General was at last informed of the
fact. He ordered a stricter watch to be kept,
as though it could he only is spy disguised in
a woman's attire. At 6 o'clock on the morn
ing of the 28th the same woman presented her
self in front of our men while they were at work.
She was of tall and majestic stature, and held
an extinguished lantern in her hand, and seem
ed to examine the works with much attention.
Some one perceived that she held a roll of pa
per half open, in which she probably noted all
the observations she could collect. At the
sight of our soldiers and officers she quickened
her pace, and entered a sort of ravine at the
extremity of the French trenches.
As soon as she reached that spot else began
to run, but the commandant sent two &eaves
in pursuit. and they soon overtook her. Two
hours after she was conducted to Gen. Canro
bed. Her examination was not long ; she
constantly replied that it was for the good of
her country, and to avenge the death of her
husband, Boninoff, killed at the Alma, that she
acted thus, and, moreover, that she felt no re.
grot. She was then searched. The searchers
found in one of her pockets a paper book, con
taining several details on the state of our bat
teries, the number of men employed, the num
ber of guts in the batteries, ke.; . and in another
pocket a double.barrel pistol, and a letter she
addressed to Menschikoff. After the visit was

At the New School Presbyterian fleneral
Assembly, in session at St. Louis, a committee,
after having examined the narratives of the
presbyteries, have made an interesting report
on the state of the church. From it we learn
that, of the 107 . presbyteries on the roll, Gil
have sent up their annual narratives, which, on
the whole, present a very gratifying picture,
though showing many wants requiring to be at
tended to. Among these is the necessity for
church edifices. Twenty•one presbyteries re
port thirty.three church edifices completed du
ring the year, or as now being oompleted, while
a great number of congregations aro waitingfor aid from the church erection fund. Minis
ters are sadly needed west, southlnd north.—
One presbytery reports many of its churches
without preachers, another has but nine minis
tens for twenty-four congregations, and another
but six ministers to seventeen congregations.
The following extract from that portion of the
report which refers to religious education will
be perused with interest :
"Several of our Southern Presbyteries re
port that their colored population aro receiving
a commendable degree of attention, and your
committee earnestly hope that churches and
Christian families in our connection will devote
themselves to this work, and set before the
world the wholesome example of public nod
family religious instruction to all their servants,
young and old. Here is a point where all our
churches involved in the difficulties of slavery
can at least mitigate its evils, can testify by
their acts of duty, their fidelity to Clod, and
their sense of obligation to those under their
care, as the stewards of the mysteries of grace."
DEM:HATE OUTRAGE Al 4) Mumma ix DELA
WARE.—Georgo Market, a negro of desperate
character, living near Dover, Delaware, got
into a quarrel, on Wednesday evening last,
with Iris wife, who was sick, and became so en
raged that lie seized a gun and fired at her
nurse, shattering her arm dreadfully. Several
white men, who hurried to the bonne, were
compelled to retreat to the woods to sieve their
lives, as Ile attacked them with savage ferocity.
His subsequent conduct is thus related by the
Milford Beacon :
"The negro, not being satisfied with his even
ing's exploit, proceeded after night to thehouse
of Mr. George Slaughter, in the same neighbor
hood, knocked at the door, and, on its being
opened by Mr. Slaughter himself, be raised his
gun to fire, and that gentleman only escaped
with his life slamming the door in his thee
and fastening it. The desperado being thus
disappointed, and a thirst for blood still Ca
ging in his heart, went to his own dwelling
and setit on tire, the light, of which drew some
of the neighbors to the scene ; but, before any
assistance could be rendered, he had actually
cut the throats of two of his children, one of
whom he threw into the fire, where it was con
sumed, and the other he threw into the yard.—
By this time a posse of men had arrived from
Dover to arrest the negro, who still held pos
session of his gun and ammunition, and, after
firing several ineffectual shots at him, the vil
lain taking leis turn, also fired, but without of ; one of the party taking advantage of the
opportunity, while the negro . s
gun was union
dud, advanced within a tow paces of him and
tired, nearly the whole charge taking effect in
the negro's thee and forehead, but without
bringing him to the ground, merely staggering
him for the moment. lie was, however, fel
leti to the ground, secured and taken to jail."
A Scuaw Loom—A. Turkish force of 20,000
men is to be officered by Britons, taken from
the India service, headed by General Vivian.
It seems that the General and his officers have
arrived at Constantinople, and been there a
fortnight without the chief being presented to
the Sultan whose troops ho is to command.—
This was his own neglect, as he never asked
for it, and it is suppose that the Sultan consi
ders this a slight, and a violation of etiquette,
as the Turkish authorities have taken no notice
of the Indian officers. The 'General had left
Constantinople without giving them any orders,
and they had to look out fur quarters ill the
hotels, and wait patiently to see the course of
events. As a neeenrary result of this, it is now
said the Sultan is opposed to the scheme of of-
ficering the Turkish troops with Britons. This
mismanagement seems to be of a piece with
the whole of the British proceedings in the
East. The Turks have already not 1e n frosted
with comen decency by their Allies, and the
correspondents of the London papers have do
predated and ridiculed them, notwithstanding
the fact that, in every battle fought by them
with the Russians, they have stood their ground
manfully. Their defence of Silistria and En
patosia does not at all suffer by a comparison
of the achievements of the Allies.

guile, in 1825. Her stern being blown out,
the treasure, was scattered upon the surround
ing sand. Some three hundred thousand dol
lars have heretofore been taken up, but owing
to the inefficiency of the machinery employed,
operations were suspended. The company
having fitted out the Manly Banning, ordered
her to stop there, and the trial descent of the
first machine, sent down in 65 feet water,
brought up one hundred dollars—thirty-two
dollars being found within the area covered by
the machine, before moving. Other articles,
as copper, &c., were brought up at the same
time. The captain, finding the advantage of '
continuing the work, immediately left for the'
seat of government to secure' the necessary:
privilege, which was granted.
Letters have been received from on board;
during the, absen se of the captain, which re
present the operators as "shoveling dollars."—
It is the intention of the company to blow the
fragments of the ship to pieces, securing the
copper,gnus, shots, etc. The captain writes:
I °l he bells are all !they are said to be." One
of the engineers writes:"l wish yen could
look into the bell when we are down on the bot
tom with our spades, dlging for the almighty
dollar. We can look out of the windows of
the bell and see the fish looking in at us. We
can take the bottom up in the hell, and get out
on the sand, and pick up the bell, and run all
around where we like." Two months, it is an
ticipated, will be sufficient to take up every
vestige of the Sun Pedro ; and the captain re
ports he has another vessel near him in the
same depth of water, 66 feet, with $50,000 on
board in specie, and another with $15,000,'
both of which he will take up before proceed
