"UP, GUARDS, AND AT 'EM I"—The late e
lection proves conclusively that Locofocoisfn
will triumph, so long as the Whig and Ameri
can parties are disunited. There is no use dis
guising the truth—it is so. The party papers
throughout the Commonweath may attribute
the Democratic victory, (so.called,) to the li
quor interests, to this and to that cause, and
we believe these interests may have had their
effect, but we do not believe that it was entirely
owing to the liquor question's being made one
of the principal points at issue, in the late cam
paign, that lost the day to the almost i ambler.
able "Samuel." To us, the case is very plain.
Let us look at our late Gubernatorial election.
Was not the liquor question then made a point
between the great parties ? Did not James
Pollock, as the lender of the Whig and Amer
ican parties pledge himself to support the Li
quor Law ? Was not the Locoloco party as a.
vowedly and strongly opposed to the Law then
as at present ? Was tint the entire Temper
ance vote cast for Pollock, and the anti-Tempe
ranee vote for Bigler ? Most assuredly. And
yet, the "victory" is all owing to liquorism, if
we are to believe politicians and political news
papers. It was owing to no such thing. We
believe that lust full fully tested this question.
A 'temperance' Governor was elected, and the
Liquor Law defeated ; owing, in the first in•
stance, to the union of the Whig and Ameri•
can parties, and in the second (we mean the
defeat of the law) to some inexplicable cause.
American papers throughout the State, may
saddle their defeat upon sectional questions,
and proclaim in connection with their defeat—
" Truth crushed to earth, will rise again—
The eternal years of God are hers ;
While Error, wonnded, writhes in pain,
And dies amid her wotshippers
but it requires not only energy and persever
ance to give "Truth" a firm foothold in the af
fections of the people, but prudence and discre
tion must be used. We would therefore sag.
gest such modification of the creed as would
enable Whigs and Americans to battle eboul•
der to shoulder against their common enemy—
tory Locofocoism. There are issues and points
in the creed of the Americans, that might with
propriety be modified. We conclude with the
language of the Pennsylvania Inquire, "The
opposition to be effective, must be united, not
only in Pennsylvania, but everywhere through
out the Republic. If the platform be not suf.
ficiently liberal, let it be enlarged ; and if it
contain planks that are weak and unstable, let
them be removed."
HORRIBLE Mustrien.:a. horrible murder was
committed in Westmoreland county, last week.
It appears that a woman nnmed Corrigan had
disappeared rather mysteriously, and her bus.
band intimated that she had went to the city.
A large fire had been observed near his house,
and some of his neighbors ventured to proceed
thither, for the purpose of ascertaining what it
meant. Oa approaching the fire, there was a
strong odor filling the Mr, nod they asked him

to leave the premises. The next morning a
neighbor pawing, had a curiosity to know what

indentified as being his wife's. He was arrest

PASSING AWAY.—Eliisha Bartlett, died in the
town of Georgia, Vt., recently, at the advanced
age of one hundred years, nine months and
thirteeen days. He served thirteen mnnths in
the Continental army, under his brother Capt.
S. Bartlett—marched with his company to Bos

affirmed and it is believed, that he walked un

SUAMEFUL.-Mr. Mason, the American Min
ister at Paris, surprised his countrymen in that
'capital by attending the n Deloot ordered by
'Louis Napoleon, in honor of the capture of Se
bastopol. The other ministers of neutral pow
ers were absent, and the Americans in Paris
thought Mr. Mason ought to have acted with
like propriety, considering that ours is also a

THE OLD WHIG PARTY.
It has become the thshion of the Democracy
now-a-days to affect great love fur the "old
Whig party," as they term it. The reason of
it is obvious. In the modern division of par
ties, they occasionally find some soft-and sappy.
headed Whig who is willing to surrender all of
his ancient antagonism to Lucolocoisin, and
unite with a party to which he has, all his life,
been bitterly opposed. Most of the deserters
to Democracy have a keen appreciation of the
loaves and fishes °lonic°. Others there ore
whose silly vanity allows them to become the
unsuspecting dupes of Democratic intrigue.—
None of them aro worth a moment's considera
Lion. The man who has been opposed to De
mocracy all his life, and who does not find is
that party now stronger reasons for his oppirii
tion than ever existed before, is too great a
simpleton not to be a disgrace to any party to
which ho may belong.
A Democratic journal, before us, speaks of
the old Whig party as "one which always com
manded our highest respect. As a party it
was an honorable enemy, distinguished alike
for the highest intelligence and candor, and
for unflinching firmness of purpose." So it
was. But it is the veriest hypocrisy in the
world of Democratic papers at this time to be
uttering such sentiments, before people who
have memory and common sense. Any one
who recollects the gross abuse which was heaped
upon the old Whig party—die diabolical slan
ders of it which were daily retailed by stump
orators and vend presses—and the palpablede
nial to it of even common honesty of purpose,
will not be quick to believe these new-born pro
fessions of respect and admiration. The ob
ject of them is too transparent to deceive any
one who is not irreuiedially a fool.
They now even have the shamelessness to
use the great name of henry Cloy in a compli
mentary manner. After having hunted hint to
the death, and pelted hint with opprobrium to
the very verge of the grave, they have now
suddenly conceived a very violent respect fur
his memory, and endeavor to create skein . ,
pression that were he now living, he would be
found arrayed against the American party.—
The Baltimore American Democrat, in a
strong artiste on this subject, says with great ,
"Front 1825 to the day of his death, Mr.
Clay was pursued by the Democratic party with
a rancor which resembles nothing that has
ever been witnessed in this country, or in the
ease of any other man. Even before be had
cast his vote for Mr. Adams in the Ilouse of
Representatives, he was denounced by honest
George Kremer, in advance. From that time
the flood-gates of abuse wore opened upon him,
and they were never shut during his life. He
was denounced in the Senate of the United
States as a "bl.k.leg," and every little stump
orator, and every little dirty sheet in the whole
country, caught up the cry.'
He was charged with ''bargain, intrigue and
corruption—with having sold himself and his
constituents for odice—with designs to subvert
the Consitution of the United States. These
wero energies of a public character, nod he
might easily 'ease ram(' them by with the
scurn which they deserved.
But the malice of his persecutors was not
content with this. They assailed his private
life in every way which ingenuity could devise,
or malice render painful. Every private act--
every transaction, pecuniary or otherwise, that,
could be got at, was distorted and dragged be
tore the public. His debts, his expenseS, his
entertainments, the carriage he rode in, the
company he had to dinner, every one of these
became, in turn, the subject or wild newspaper
abuse. Even the misconduct of members or
his family was dragged before the world to
gratify the malignity of his traducers. Once,
and once only, he turned upmt his tormentors,
and challenged one of them to mortal combat.
Even this act, forced upon him by the inhuman
treatment which they themselves had encour
aged, was eagerly seized upon, and he ens
branded as a duellist and a murderer in his
heart. He was in a position in which he could
not defend himself, for he wne Secretary of the

Prudence and Diacretion Necessary.
We take the following Iron the Lewistown
Gazdte, with our endorsah—Some of the news
papers, either wholly or in part recognized as
“organs” of the American party, and therefore
supponed to speak its sentiments, frequently
indulge in language alike unwise and ut.be•
coming; and which if persisted in, mutt evita
bly result in injury. We have three or four ex
change papers•befere ua now, some of which
seem to take especial pleasure in speaking of
the "defunct whig party," the "old rotten and
corrupt parties," and other opprobrious terms.
All these arc from counties when, the Ameri-
can ticket was succonftil at tho late election—
not through the intrinsic strength of that
party, but undoubtedly by the aid of a
number of whiga (and possibly some demo
crats) who, sympathising with the leading fea
tures of Americanism, or desirous of defeating
their old opponents, voted the American ticket.
In doing so they were governed by principles,
and by principles only. They looked for no
nominations—nor had they lot or part in ma
king any—yet yielding their own organization
and all minor considerations, in this county,
they resisted even the appeals of one who had
always been recognized as a whig, and voted
against him because ho had in a measure iden
tified himself with their old opponents. Sure
ly, this was sacrifice enough to meet approba
tion ratherthan taunt—to call for thanks, rath
er than sneers.
But we do not for a moment believe that
ther the American ty or its leaders coincide
with such_suici a nod uncalled for ex
pressions. If t e any political foresight
at all, they will . 11 in our opinion to ex
tend a welcome hand to votes no well an mem
bers: and to recognize in the hand of whigs
who stood firm when even some avowed Amer
icans faltered, as having rendered at least sonic
service. The true policy of Americanism un
doubtedly is to invite co-operation on the part
of all who are opposed, not to true democracy,
but to that baneful locabtoisin whirls has
plunged Pennsylvania into a mountain of debt
and taxation, and under false pretences eleva
ted to office in the National Government a
band of mere speculators and stoek-aohbers.—
These are the antagonists of both whigs and
Americans, and to make their opposition effec

political rights as well as ollice—while Ameri

strength from the native•born whigs and demo

prudence and discretion are necessary, nay es

DREADFUL MURDER AT CUMBER
Het. 16.—Our town has, for
the past twenty-four hours, been in the moot
intense excitement, occasioned by two of the
moot appalling and unprovoked murders on re
cord, the whole object being, it is supposed,
plunder. The victims are Dr. J. F. C. Hadel,
formerly health officer of Baltimore, but for the
last three years a practising physician of this
city, and a young mum in his office, named
It appears that on Monday evening the body
of young Graf was found is the ntountains, a
short distance from town bearing the evidence
of having been killed from a gunshot wound.—
The body was recognized and brought to town,
ar.d, on inquiry, it was ascertained that Dr.
Hadel was also missing, and inquiry was made
of his friends in Baltimore without obtaining
any information in relation to him.
In the meantime a German pedlar was arres
ted on suspicion of murdering Mr. Graf, and
on searching hint the watch and chain, pocket
book, and clothing of Dr. Haslet were launch in
his possession, leaving no doubt unto his having
met with the same fate as his unfortunate young
'rho murderer was arrested at 12 o'clock on
Monday night, and the most intense excitement
existed until daylight this morning, when a
large number of citizens started out n search
for the body of Dr, Model. The search was
continued until about 10 o'clock this morning,
when the body woo found in the mountains,

besides the mark of having been shot through

and it is supposed that the murderer has con

It appears that the German pedlar who has
been arrested on the charge of being the perpe
trator of this hoerible massacre is a stranger in
Cumberland, and has been boarding at a far
mer's house by the name of Steel, near town,
for some days past. On Sunday morning be
tweets it and 10 o'clock this stranger and the
Doctor were seen going over the bridge in the
direction where the latter was murdered, and
Mr. and Mrs. Steel say that this man called
rind got Isis gen almut that hour, and it is belie
ved he enticed the Doctor out by telling him
some ono was very ill, and shot him through
the back of his neck, as his coat, found in pos
session of the supposed murderer, had the
mark of a bullet through the collar.
After murdering the doctor it is supposed he
went to Steel's, melte latter says thathe brought
his gun back about noon, and immediately
started towards Cumberland. He was next
seen in the Doctor's office, in Cumberland, by
a gentleman who called there to inquire for the
Doctor. Young Graf was there with him, and
on the gentleman inquiring for the doctor he
was told by Graf that he was out in the moun
tains, and had met with an accident, having
fallen in the water. It is supposed that the
, murderer had told Graf this tale and that the
doctor had sent to hint to bring him sonic dry
chillies. The murderer and Graf were seen in
the afternoon going in the same direction
Mr. Graf carrying a bundle with hint. Mr.
Steel also states that this mac accompanied by
Mr. Graf, came to his house, and the roan got
his gun again, and they Went ou up the moun

that they passed them together on the moms

Commerce of the United States.
The September number of Hunt's Merchant's 1
Magazine contains a statistical view of the
commerce of the United States for each year
from 1790 to 1854 inclusive. The article is
the result of great labor and research, and will
prove of great value to the numerous renders
of this excelhmt and useful publication. From
it we learn; that for the year 1750 the exports
of foreign and domestic merchandize amoun
ted to $20,205,156 ; imports same year, $23,-
000,000. For the year 1854, exports $278,341,-
064; imports, $304,362,381. Total exports
from 1790 to 1851 inclusive, aggregate value,

pony in Manta drat, south-west corner of
Third, which has been fer a long time and
continUOS to be ono of the most prosperous and
successful institutions in Philadelphia, and we
may add nt the same time, of the most -useful.
It was chartered in 1811 by the LeAttslature of
Peunsylvanin, and since its organization has
steadily pursued the oljeots for which it was
incorporated, unprecedented success which
.has attended its operations, affords a good
Instration of what skill and perseverance right.
ly directed can accomplish. The amount of
deposits and number of its depositories has
gone on steadily increasing from year to year,
until they now greatly exceed the amount re•
misted by any other institution of the same
kind in this city. The people of Philadelphia
are prmtd of it, and pilt to it no - prom:tilting
an instance of successful enterprise, and at
the same time affording the means of effecting
a great public good by l Baring the promotion
of economy and industry amongAt every class
of her citizens.
There is no SUM too small, and no sum toe
large to be received there, and it in art surpri
sing, therefore, that this Saying Fond has a
great number of depositors, and has received
a very large amount of money. People who
cull there find that e the Secretary and his assns.
tents are kept constantly employed from trier.
ning till night, and twice in a week until a late I
hour in the evening, in receiviog the money'
brought by peoplo who are anxious to pet it in
for the double purpose of having it safely kept
and that they may be able at the 93111 C time to
get interest for it.
We aro well acquainted with the operations
of this Saving Food. We have ourselves fru
quently deposited large sums in it—aro in dai
ly personal intercourse with its officers ned di
rectors. A great many of our Wends also
have put their money into and add to it from
time until the sums depusi ed with the twee
' mulated interest, shall enable them to purchase
a house, or accomplish some other sod impor.
tont and profitable object. We bear every one
of them speak of it with the highest approba ,
tine on account of• the careful mannerin which
its business is conducted, and they all refer to
it as a perfioct model for all similar institution.s.
We have reason to believe that large sums
of money ore kept in private hands both in tic
city and country, where it proves a constant
source of anxiety and of real danger to the
owner. There is scarcely a day pu,en is
which there is not some account in public pa
pers of money having been lost by tire, and
still more frequently by rubbery often attended
by murder. The possession of a very small
seta has frequently led to the commission of
both these crimes. These calamities are not
confined to our cities, but ill proportion to the
population are even more frequent in the coun
try. is reason to believe that a great
many fires which have occurred iirthe city and
country have been preceded by robbery, end
the fire created for that purpose of codtealing
it. it is therefore a great public benefit to
have an institution in which any sum of money
large or small, can be placed with interest
while it remains, and from which the owner
can get it back again in gold at any moment
he pleases to call for it. Precisely such tot
institution is the Airing Food of the Notional
SOO Company and we feel confident that
people who put their money in it instead of
keeping iu their own houses, subject to be lost
at any time from fire, robbery and other aced
deals whlell no frequently happen, will lie re
lieved from a groat load or anxiety, and will
alwaye be richer by the aliment of interest they
get for it while it remains there.
People who have the largest sums laying
idle in their own houses, of course feel the
greatest anxiety, and would receive most bene
fit by placing it in this Institution. We have
understood that ninny people who have large
sums have come front a great distance to put
their money in this Saying Fund., on account
of the superior safety and convenience it of
fords; and consequently have been relieved
from the care and anxiety inseperale from
keeping it in their own houses.
It may be proper also to state thatthe money
placed in this Saving Fund, is carefully inves
ted in Mortgagor, Ground Rents, and other
I first class securities, which prevents the possi
bility of lose and further.that by the rules of
, the Company, none of the Directors or Officers
can directly or indirectly use or borrow any of
its money. MANY CITIZENS.
