Gov. Reeder.
The removal of Gov. Reeder excites deep
and general indignation throughout the North.

who have hitherto said little or nothing respec•

How to get Asleep.
How to get s!cep is to some people indeed a
matter of high importance. Nervous persons,
who are troubled with wakefulness and exalts•
bility, usually have a strong tend any of blood
on the brain, with cold extremities. The pres-
sure of the blood on the bra in keels it in a
stimulated or wakeful state, 'and the pulsations
in the head are often painful. Let such rise
and chafe the body and extremities with a
brush or towel, or rub smartly with the hands
to promote circulation, and withdraw the ex
cessive amount of Mond from the brain, and
they will fall asleep in a few moments.
A cold bath, or a sponge bath and rubbing,
or a good run, or a rapid walk in the open air,
or going up or down stairs a few times, just
before retiring, will aid in equalizing circulation
and promoting sleep.

The Approaohieg Election.
It is a matter of some importance to the I
Whigs el Id untinidon County, to know,
the proper course which they should pur
sue the present time. To us, the path of '
duty is marked out very plainly and dis
tinctly, and we have no doubt but the idea
we have of the duty of Whigs, will meet
the approbation of our fellow:citizens.
It is very ovident that the Locofoco par
ty earnestly desire a fusion, for the pur
pose of defeating the third party now in
the field, and crippling its power. Al
though the American party at present, ap
parently scorns this assistance which the
patriotic Whigs of the country might be
induced to render, for the purpose of root.
ing out thoroughly, the corrupt doctrine of
Locofocoism, yet we feel assured, that it
cannot always he so. But, should this par
ty continuo to act in the manner it has,
continuo to insist upon acting on a distinct
platform, we would trot consider it judicious
nor prudent for the Whig party, to make
further overtures. Therefore, the whole
matter brings itself to this point, if a co
operation with a party battling against the
enemy of Whig principles is impossible,
the "fusion" with the enemy, for the ;our
pose of securing a portion of the "spoils,"
should not be dreamed of.
Therefore, we hold, there remains but
one course for us to pursue—the path of
honor and duty. Let the party net as it
hitherto has done, on a separate and dis
tinct basis. We can try, and if we can
not have the proud satisfaction of seeing
victory crown our efforts, as in by-gone
days, and of waving our glorous banner
over the stone-holds of a conquered ene
my, we may at least have the satisfaction
of having dant, our duty ; if we cannot
become conquerors, we can preserve our
nationality. Nominate a complete county
ticket, vote it, and all will be right. Let
us battle faithfully for the good old cause,
and if we cannot do better, we can at least
go down with our colors flying.
A Beautiful "Orbit.'
The very first resolution ado,ited by the
so-called ' , Democratic County Committee
of Huntingdon county," which in reality,
consists of two or three broken down pa.
laical hacks of Huntingdon Borough, is a
decided hoax. It is rich, high, and we
give it for the purpose of proving that the
Locofoco population of this county fully en.
dor se the errors into which their party has
plunged headlong, through the stupid ig
norance or wilful villainy at Gen. l'ierce,
who is its head and front.
"Resolved-Ist—That moving on in her or
bit an of old, the Democratic party is still true
to her ancient faith; and that she repudiates all
the modern political heresies of the day;'
Now in what a glorious orbit has the:so
called "Democracy" of our country been
moving for the past few years. Does any
true patriot, any free Democratic northern
man endorse the action of the lawless rut
flans of Missouri ? The Members of the
Locofoco potty of this county must, or else
they repudiate the platform erected by the
Democratic County Committee.
FerhapS the GLibe may answer the que
ry : Does the Locufoco party of this coun
ty endorse General Pierce's course, relit
tive to the Kitnzas matter, the removal of
Reeder, and his other political actions T.
There matters form part of that "orbit,"
and we really wduld like to know
it the in
telligent portion of the Democratic party
of the county, is to be hood-winked and
baml•oezeled into a quiet obedience to the
dictation of a few unprincipled demagogues
who take upon themselves the privilege
of becoming the tongue and mouth of the
Democracy. llas the Globe the indepen

The Globe assails us for making a reli•
gious profession, and asserts we do not
live a consistent life. Now Mr. Lewis ve
ry well knows that whilst he charges us
with hypocrisy, he is a greater hypocrite
than we, fur everybody knows that he has
employed, a chriviun of the Torn Payne
stump, to do up his editorials. If nir. L.
chooses to employ a disbeliever in the word
of God, to blackguard and seek to blacken
our character, why of course, we shall of
fer no objection, reserving to ourselves the
privilege of preventing his hideous propor
tions, when he may most wish to keep
them hid. Does Mr. L. deny that his em•
ployee is tainted with anti religious ideas?
The Proof.
The Washington Union, and other jouanals,
have lately been engaged in assiduously contra.
dieting the statement that Mr. Barringer was
informed in Madrid by the Pope's Nuncio, that
Hon. James Campbell was to be Post Master
General. The following is Mr. 13arringer's
own statement :
"Before I had any authentic and certain
news of the formation of the cabinet, and while
it was still a subject of conjecture at the Court
of Madrid, he (the Pope's Nuncio) told me that
Judge Campbell, of Pennsylvania, was appoin
ted, and that ho was a Catholic, which was the
first information I had either of his appointment
or of his religion."

The Reflux of Emigration from the Uni
ted States.
We are told that the law of re-action is of
universal application, and that there is no cur
rent in the eta whose influence is not to a
grentertr less extent countervailed byu stream
in the opposite direction. Emigration front
the ever-crowded countries of the Old World to
the fertile and unfilled regions of the New seem
ed !cost I:hely to furnish us with a new exatn
ple of the ;,eneral theory. Flititory has indeed
recorded many instances where the vdid crea
ted by is rapid and extensive migration has been
replenished by the overflow of some other rate
pressing forfrard in the same direction. But
such phenomena are mostly essentially unlike
those which fall under the description of re ac
tion, and can in no sense be classified there
with. Redinmigration is a new rout curious
illustration of the mingled ebb rind Now of la
bor seeking employment in our time.
Everywhere gregarious industry is afoot,
seeking and striving alter more room for work,
and ready at short notice to cross half the globe
with tiifes and little ones, in quest of ten or
fifteen per cent better wages. Other Wham
ces, social and political, have .in recent years
stimulated vast numbert throughout till Wes
tent Europe to cross the ocean; but from no
quarters has there been such it gush of pops
lotion as from Ireland. The marvelous meg
nitude of the continuous stream to America
that tel its after the famine of 18-C7, and con
tinued without almtentent until 1532; is famil
iar to every reader. In 185:1 and 1851 the
current perceptibly declined in breadth and
volume. 'Jut front the Southern and Western
districts it has never ceased to flow up to the
present time. Strange, that already a (reenter
current Arnold now have steadily set in, and
that many who but two or three years ego bade
farewell to their! entice shares have already re•
'mimed the hope of mending their condition
in the land of promise, and have returned to
settle themselves once more on their native
When first we heard indications of this re.
action We were naturally disposed to regard it
as but rotund and superficial. In every crowd
of migratory adventurers there will always be
iind some who join in the undertaking tin. no
other reason than that their associates and kin
dred hove resolved to do so, but who are
virtually destitnto of those qualities of enter
prise, perseverance, and self . ..Hance on which,
In new and untried circumstances, their success
must mainly depend. We own, therefore, OM
we were inclined hastily to conclude that it teas
only the idle, the listless, mid the dreamers of
unrealizatt:e dreams who had become quickly
disappointed with the state of things they found
on the other side of the :Atlantic, and who had
in consequence drifted back again to the old
land, where they had never done well, to do no
badly there as before.
Further inquiries, however, have led us to
form a somewhat different estimate of the ex•
tent and character of the re-immigration that
cluing the last twelve months, especially has
been tilling place from the United States to
Ireland) and the matter is in every respect •
well deserving of thoughtful consideration.—
The tinlooked for re-action may, we believe, be
ntaittly ascribed to two causes—the over sup
ply of labor, both skilled .d unskilled, which
the surplus capital of the States has been in
suflieient to absorb; and secondly, the growing
sense of distrust and repugnance unions , the
large classes of American citizens, the
sine of organized multitudes possessing few, if •
any, ideas in harmony with their own, and
avowedly swayed by influences little in unison
with those to which the great Commonwealth
awes its being.
